As the UK becomes more and more diverse, the flora we grow is changing – and we want to honour that. So, this week, we're spotlighting the plants grown here from elsewhere. First up, we'll take a trip to an allotment site in Southall. Here, award-winning garden designer Manoj Malde will chat with us about the fruit and veg from around the world that he's including in his garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. We're then delving into the history of plant collectors. Fiona Davison, Head of Libraries and Exhibitions at the RHS, will take us through the often overlooked legacy of how some of our garden favourites made it to Britain from far-off lands. Finally, we'll head to RHS Bridgewater's Chinese Streamside Garden – and explore how international horticultural partnerships have changed over the years.

Professor Buzzkill History Podcast
Simon Winchester takes us on a journey through the history of how knowledge has been acquired, stored, and passed on, and how that dissemination has evolved with time. Crucially, he muses on how—in an age where a world of information is just a cell phone away—the thoughtfulness and wisdom that derives from knowledge might be under threat. We talk about everything from ancient Mesopotamian libraries to the “knowledge” that bacon and eggs are the most energizing American breakfast foods. Episode 509.
This week on The Book Drop we talk about how we've been spending our screen time and share some titles about movies and TV for the latest OPL Reading Challenge category.

In Spoils of Knowledge: Seventeenth-Century Plunder in Swedish Archives and Libraries (Brill, 2023), Emma Hagström Molin offers novel perspectives on document and book plundering. At the forefront of her study is the controversial heritage connected to the Swedish Empire (1611–1721) kept in Swedish archives and libraries. Previous studies suggest that continental spoils were perceived as an inferior and problematic category, and that Catholic books in particular were hard to accommodate in Protestant libraries. However, by considering systems of classification and collection orders of archives and libraries, Hagström Molin unearths a much more complex history of how plundered knowledge was appreciated, used and fused with its new Swedish settings. Moreover, spanning a history of four hundred years, this book shows that the understanding of spoils changed significantly over time. Molin demonstrates the value of studying classification and provenance, and the importance in considering how contextual time and space shapes the meaning of texts. Jen Hoyer is Technical Services and Electronic Resources Librarian at CUNY New York City College of Technology. Jen edits for Partnership Journal and organizes with the TPS Collective. She is co-author of What Primary Sources Teach: Lessons for Every Classroom and The Social Movement Archive. Learn more about your ad choices.

For thousands of years, the Dakota lived and worked at Traverse des Sioux, located on the lower Minnesota River. By the early 19th century, European American fur traders, missionaries, and adventurers were frequent visitors. Then in 1851, this site witnessed the signing of the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux between the US government and the Dakota. Read a book about rivers or river travel. In our show notes for this episode, we link each book to a couple of our state's great independent bookstores: Drury Lane Bookstore in Grand Marais. It gives you a description, so you can get more information about the book to help you make a decision about your reading aor recommendations.
An interesting mix of topics and points of view highlights this week's episode of the BFG podcast. Host Neal Pollack welcomes Sharyn Vane to talk about the somewhat sinister trend of conservative legislators and legislatures trying to defund libraries. Sharyn says this is an extension of the movement to keep kids away from sexualized literature, particularly literature about transgendered culture and politics. But public libraries are a non-ideological good that provide multiple public services to people of all ages, politics, and walks of life. Surprise surprise, we are against defunding them.We're also against the idea that people should ban or refuse to screen the films of Woody Allen. But the Cannes Film Festival has decided to do just that with Allen's latest film, Coup de Chance, which he shot in Paris, starring a cast entirely of French actors. Michael Washburn stops in to say "we're seeing a lack of moral courage on the part of the festival's organizers." Neal and Michael discuss the modern films of Woody Allen, but the politics of his lingering abuse scandal, however exonerated he might be, continue to hover over his career. Maybe Book and Film Globe will host a screening of the movie when they get the chance!Finally, it's time for Stephen Garrett to appear, reviewing the movie of the week, Ari Aster's 'Beau Is Afraid,' a deeply bizarre psychological comedy about maternal obsession, neurosis, and anxiety, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Stephen admires Ari Aster's "original vision," but says "it just doesn't gel". Neal calls it the "ultimate Jewish theater kid with mommy issues movie." If you want to see Ari Aster's id on the screen, this is the movie for you. It is not the movie for us, particularly.Enjoy our show.

Special Guest: Kirk Cameron, Actor and Author, "As You Grow" In today's show, I'm sharing new details from the Chicago weekend 'Teen Takeover' that local lawmakers want to ignore. Lori Lightfoot said there was no mayhem. I beg to differ. Plus, Bud Light is trying out a new 'patriotic' marketing campaign in an effort to win back customers. Newsflash: Anheuser-Busch is not an 'American' company, it's a multi-national global conglomerate. I'll explain. And - not even Mr. Beast can escape the story du jour.. Mr. Beast, aka Jimmy Donaldson, is the most famous Youtube personality. His empire and his show centers around him and his 'bros'...but, one of the bros isn't feeling so manly anymore. What will that mean for Mr. Beast? I'm asking one of our producers Simeon Harris (a Mr. Beast fan) who lays out the challenge for the Youtuber. Meanwhile, with 'cancel culture' reigning supreme, I'm joined by Kirk Cameron, who says he's feeling its effects in his library reading tour across the country. The actor best known for his role of Mike Seaver in the 1980s sit-com "Growing Pains", is out will a new book for children called "As You Grow." He says he and his publisher (Brave Books) are struggling to ensure his message of God and Family are heard because too many libraries don't like what he represents. The culture war is raging. Join me for a front seat look at the challenges for our country, our economy, our children, and ourselves. Plus, don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter at https://TrishReganShow.com.

What comes to mind when you imagine a library? Rows of books, probably. But across the continent, libraries are transforming into places that serve communities in all sorts of other ways. This week we hear from two very different libraries about how they're doing just that: Bojana Grujic of the Novi Sad City Library in Serbia and Myrto Tsilimpounidi from the Feminist Library at the Feminist Autonomous Centre in Athens. We're also talking about the fallout from Macron's trip to China, the international fight against Hungary's homophobic law, and the hallucinogenic adventures of early Europeans. Bojana and Myrto's libraries are taking part in the European Cultural Foundation's Europe Challenge. The hunt for new participants begins soon; keep an eye on the ECF's website for updates, or subscribe to their newsletter. This week's Isolation Inspiration: Birdsbesafe cat collars, available via the Royal Belgian League for the Protection of Birds, and 'The Shadow King' by Maaza Mengiste.

4.12.2023 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Shanquella Robinson No Fed Charges, Justin Pearson Rally, MO GOP Defunding Libraries, New EPA Rule The U.S. Department of Justice has announced it will not file charges for Shanquella Robinson, who died on holiday in Mexico in October 2020 due to lack of evidence. We will discuss what happens next in the case of Shanquella Robinson's death. The Shelby County Commission in Tennessee voted on whether to reappoint Justin J. Pearson to his legislative seat after the Republican House expelled him last week. We will tell you what happened. Cliff Albright, Co-Founder of Black Voters Matter, will join me live from Tennessee for more details. In a 136-10 vote, the Texas State House passed House Bill 1, a $302 billion state budget for fiscal years 2024-25 that would provide billions in funding for higher education. However, if the House proposal becomes law, colleges won't be able to use any state money for "the design, implementation, or administration" of DEI practices and programs. We will explain what this means for the future of education with Texas State Representative Jarvis Johnson. Missouri State House of Representatives voted to strip all public libraries of funding a week after lawmakers debated the budget proposal by Governor Mike Parson, which eliminates $4.5 million for libraries, diversity initiatives, childcare, and pre-kindergarten programs. To explain the dire situation, we will speak to Jamie Johnson, Missouri State Representative of House District 12. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new pollution rules. We will speak with the Former Senior Advisor for Environmental Justice, EPA, Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali, to tell us how these changes will impact our everyday lives. Black Maternal Health Week has started in the U.S., and Black women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than White women. In our tech talk segment, we will speak with the creators of the IRTH App, who are helping to empower black women in their health journey.

Hello everyone! I had Colby Sharp on the podcast back in 2017, and we talked about sharing our stories as educators.Years later, Colby has released new books, podcasts, and so much more, as he spreads the good news of literacy and books with his audience. Today, we spend our time talking about classroom libraries, how Covid changed Colby's perception on what's important, and how proximity to books and having multiple access points to literature is key to building independent readers.

Kirk Cameron is at The Babylon Bee again to talk about how his story hours at libraries are offering parents and children the opportunity to hear wholesome stories about the fruit of the Holy Spirit like love, joy, and peace, and how more than 50 woke libraries have told him that his book's message is not aligned with the library's values. That might explain all the drag queens everywhere! Kirk Cameron has a new children's book As You Grow: https://www.amazon.com/As-You-Grow-Kirk-Cameron/dp/1955550298/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=as+you+grow&qid=1680829560&sr=8-1#customerReviews The Babylon Bee is also talking about Trump's indictment on 34 felony charges, how the New York Times is no longer verified on Twitter, and how Dylan Mulvaney is now a Bud Light Partner.
