The Great McGonagall (1974)

Phil Cannon from the Who's He? podcast joins Tyler this week to discuss a film unfairly overlooked by the Academy - Spike Milligan's The Great McGonagall from 1974. Written by Spike and Joe McGrath (Casino Royale, Digby the Biggest Dog in the World, Not Only But Also) and starring Milligan as the titular poet & tragedian, the film also featured Peter Sellers as Queen Victoria (kneeling on a skateboard), John Bluthal, Victor Spinetti and Julia Foster. Considered by many to be the worst poet who ever drew breath, William Topaz McGonagall had long been a favourite of Sellers and Milligan and indeed had been woven into the fabric of The Goon Show, turning up as a character in occasional episodes (notably The Tay Bridge in 1959). This film takes constant liberties with the truth and is about as far away from being a faithful account of the poet's life as any biopic could credibly claim to be. That said, several of his poems were used and a handful of scenes were at least partly based on actual events. The film was shot over three weeks entirely at Wilton's Music Hall and was not a success, receiving only limited release. It did garner a few fairly favourable notices (Richard Eder, writing in the New York Times, described it as a "radiant failure") but most reviewers were chilly towards it. Time Out thundered: "The humour is forced and the social/political comment embarrassingly exposed... it looks like some tiresome theatrical junket brought out in the wake of the departing Lord Chamberlain, crammed full of previously vetoed references to the Royal Family!" Calm down Time Out, it's a low-budget British comedy, it's not trying to be Pather Panchali. Despite this (or perhaps because of it!) Tyler and Phil had an enjoyable time chatting about it and would welcome listeners to check out the film if they haven't already seen it: available for a few quid on DVD and for free on YouTube (as of time of writing).

The Supreme Court is considering two cases that will have reaching implications for voting rights. Merrill v. Milligan, out of Alabama centers on accusations of racial gerrymandering by the state in an effort to dilute the Black vote. Gerrymandering is also an issue in the case Moore v. Harper, out of North Carolina. At stake is the so-called independent state legislature theory. Plaintiffs in the case say North Carolina has used this theory to dodge a state court ruling that struck down gerrymandered voting maps.

Novelist and writer Jonathan Coe is our guest this week. He is the author of several novels which your host holds dear, including What A Carve Up! and The Rotter's Club and his latest book, Bournville, is published this week. A master of social & political satires, state-of-the-nation sagas and generation-spanning comic narratives, Jonathan often plays with the form and, as we find out, before he discovered influential writers such as B.S Johnson and Flann O'Brien he was introduced to experimental comic prose via Spike Milligan's 1963 novel Puckoon. His enthusiasm for comedy as a youth drove him to seek out more Milligan as well as the likes of David Nobbs and he built up a sizeable library of comic novels, sitcom tie-in books and comedy books in general. He talks to Tyler about the comedy and humour he grew up with, especially the work of Milligan, and how it informed his way of looking at the world. 'Bournville' will be published by Viking on 3rd November.

On October 4, 2022 the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Merrill v. Milligan.Following the 2020 Census, the Alabama Legislature redrew its congressional district lines to account for shifts in the state's population. With these new lines, only one of the state's seven congressional districts was majority-minority. Several plaintiffs sued, asserting the districts violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, and sought the creation of an additional majority-minority district to account for the growing African American population in Alabama.The District Court enjoined the districts, holding that they violated the VRA. Alabama appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which granted Certiorari and stayed the district court's injunctions.We will break down the argument on the same day, October 4, 2022.Featuring:David Warrington, Partner, Dhillon Law Group Inc.

This is where the story really starts: Having enjoyed success on the stage with The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter Nick Newman & Ian Hislop hit upon the idea of writing a play about Spike Milligan, focusing on his Goon Show years and highlighting his running battles with the BBC. And so they did. As the play's publicity puts it: "Flanked by his fellow Goons and bolstered by the efforts of irrepressible sound assistant Janet, Spike takes a flourishing nosedive off the cliffs of respectability, and mashes up his haunted past to create the comedy of the future. His war with Hitler may be over, but his war with Auntie Beeb - and ultimately himself - has just begun." SPIKE premiered at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury at the beginning of 2022 and was a big success. Regular listeners to this show will know that Tyler spoke to Nick, to John Dagleish (who played Milligan) and to Margaret Cabourn-Smith (Janet) earlier this year - all those shows are available in the archive. Then it was announced that SPIKE would be setting out on a nationwide tour from September and that there would be a few new additions to the cast - most notably the role of Spike himself was to be taken on by actor Robert Wilfort (known for Gavin & Stacey, Sex Education and going down a waterslide in his underpants). Although it was a hugely challenging role to tackle Robert threw himself into it with brio and the new production is drawing rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. Tyler managed to catch Robert for an entertaining chat ahead of a run of shows at the Malvern Festival Theatre last month. The show is running until 26th November and fast selling out: for more information and booking see SPIKE | Touring the UK this autumn (spiketheplay.co.uk)

We're excited to drop the first episode of Season Three of Holy Heretics with host Gary Alan Taylor! We are dedicating this year to marginalized voices who have either been muzzled by conventional Christianity or who have been pushed to the periphery of faith. People whose voices, bodies, race, gender, or sexuality make them dangerous to the status quo. In this introductory episode, we invite you to go on an adventure into the borderlands of faith, where we seek the real meaning of the spiritual quest, and where we dare to meet the God who stands in solidarity with the marginalized. Along the way, we will be lead by wise guides who know the way through the spiritual wilderness. Following Joseph Campbell's archetypal “Hero's Journey,” we'll wander ancient spiritual pathways toward our final destination with the Divine. What we find is that the God we serve lives on the margins, in the outlandish periphery where She has been banished for being too inclusive, too compassionate, too kind. If God became flesh as the least of these living on the edges of society, then in order to find God now, we need to move to the margins. In the end, we pause long enough in our quest to ask a few simple but profound questions. What is the end goal of spirituality? Why have humans for thousands of years sought union with the Divine, and what happens when we come face to face with God? What is “Theosis,” and is it possible to obtain intimate union with God in the here and now? Thanks for joining us on the quest to uncover the heart of faith! We are glad to offer you early access to Season Three! BioGary Alan Taylor is Co-Founder of The Sophia Society and host of Holy Heretics Podcast. He has an undergraduate degree from Milligan University and a Master of Arts in European History and Holocaust Studies from East Tennessee State University before pursuing doctoral work at the University of Tennessee. He served in non-profit organizations and higher educational institutions before starting The Sophia Society with his friend and co-worker Melanie Mudge. Gary Alan began deconstructing white evangelicalism after leaving Focus on the Family in 2010. An “evangelicals evangelical,” Gary Alan began leaving white evangelicalism during his time on staff at Milligan University when he was introduced to pacifism and nonviolence. He credits his time as an undergraduate at Milligan for helping to instill the joy of lifelong learning, and his favorite authors and mentors in the progressive Christian space include Marcus Borg, Joan Chittister, Matthew Fox, Derrick Jensen, Richard Rohr, and Thomas Merton. In 2014, he and his wife joined the Episcopal Church. Through the leading of his wife Jennifer, he is pursuing a more contemplative, mystical Christianity. Gary Alan isn't an expert, but rather a fellow traveler on the quest to uncover the heart of faith. He has taught more than 15 courses at the university level and along with his role in the deconstruction space, he works at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs as a Development Officer. Gary Alan is married to Jennifer, and they are raising their three children in Monument, Colorado.

In this episode Dr. Manamee Guha is joined by Drew Legere, a Junior at Fort Hays State University to discuss her research project on the tense relationship between the British and the Chinese leading up to the Opium Wars. As the British involved themselves in the opium trade, which brought British controlled Indian opium to China, both the opium merchants and Christian missionaries argued in support of the opium wars. Religious arguments were used by both groups to emphasize the importance of a British connection to China. For British opium merchants, demonizing the Chinese through their heathenism allowed the merchants to ignore the negative impact of the opium trade since the Chinese lack this vital British quality. Christian missionaries supported the opium wars to expand Christian influences on China, but later view the opium trade as a barrier to conversion which they viewed as a necessity for Chinese betterment. Suggested Reading: Berridge, Virginia and Edwards, Griffith.

They take listeners inside the arguments, and provide vital context for the challenges faced by residents of Alabama's Black Belt in accessing healthcare, infrastructure and not coincidentally, political representation.  Next, Dahlia is joined by Sam Sankar, Senior Vice President of Programs at Earth Justice to discuss what went down in Sackett v EPA, a case argued Monday that could have wide-ranging effects on the waters and wetlands of the United States.  In this week's Amicus Plus segment, Dahlia is joined by Mark Joseph Stern to talk about the new dynamics of arguments with Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson taking her seat at the High Court, the conservative reaction to their favorite text and history rubric being applied by the first African American woman on the court (huh, they don't love it?), and what to expect from a new filing in the Mar A Lago investigation that's on its way to 1, First Street.

Did you miss any of The Rich Zeoli Show this week? It's ok. We forgive you. But now is your chance to catch-up on all the action: During Supreme Court oral arguments for Merrill v. Milligan and Merrill v. Caster—cases which will determine whether Alabama's new congressional map is a violation of the Voting Rights Act—Alabama Solicitor General Edmund G. Lacour argued that his state's redistricting was made in a “race neutral manner.” Based on her questions, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson seemed to believe that the 14th Amendment was not meant to be “race neutral or race blind.” In his retort to Justice Jackson, Lacour stated: “the 14th Amendment is a prohibition on discriminatory state action…it is not an obligation to engage in affirmative discrimination in favor of some groups...” Momma Zeoli hilariously breaks bad news to children. Worried about the struggling economy? Don't be! The Washington Post's business section moronically explains why a recession is a good thing for Americans, with reasons that include “housing prices may finally come down to reasonable levels” and “student loan forgiveness is coming.” Assistant Producer Daniel reveals that Neumann University recently decided to remove Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from its school's library. What did Willy Wonka do to offend people??? Actually, there might be a few controversial things… Dr. Marty Makary—Professor at Johns Hopkins University & author of the book “The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care—and How to Fix It”—joins the show to talk about a new study published by The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) indicating that trace amounts of the COVID-19 vaccine are present in the breast milk of new mothers. Dr. Makary also weighs-in on a startling new California law that is designed to restrict doctors from spreading anything lawmakers determine is “misinformation.”

3:00pm- According to a report from journalists Devlin Barrett and Perry Stein of the Washington Post, federal agents are in the process of investigating Hunter Biden—the son of President Joe Biden—and believe they have acquired enough evidence to “charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase.” Will Hunter Biden actually face prosecution?   3:35pm- According to a Bloomberg report, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has voted to cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day—despite the Biden Administration's numerous attempts to persuade the intergovernmental organization to produce more oil. In response to OPEC's decision, the Biden Administration announced it would release an additional ten million barrels from the strategic petroleum reserves. In September, Forbes wrote that the nation's petroleum reserves were already at their lowest level since 1984.    4:05pm- While speaking at a seminar hosted by University of Southern California's Center for Health Journalism, Dr. Anthony Fauci defended the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) continued funding of gain-of-function research—specifically research conducted by the non-governmental organization EcoHealth Alliance. EcoHealth has been accused of failing to report an experiment in Wuhan which resulted in the creation of a bat virus that, according to Science.org, “made mice sicker.”    4:30pm- On Wednesday night's Late Night Show, host Stephen Colbert and Dr. Anthony Fauci went shopping for Halloween candy.

According to those supporting their removal, the books contained sexual content inappropriate for children.    5:10pm- Assistant Producer Daniel reveals that Neumann University recently decided to remove Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from its school's library.

Actually, there might be a few controversial things…   5:20pm- According to the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, “more than a dozen environmental outfits, including Greenpeace and the Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote to big tech companies to blame them for ‘amplifying and perpetuating climate disinformation.'” Recently, Melissa Fleming—the Communications Undersecretary for the United Nations—bragged about partnering with Google to manipulate search results on climate change.    5:40pm- Paul J.

What is the true impact of fines and fees?   In this episode, I speak with two inspiring individuals—Adam Danneman, the Chief Public Defender of Jefferson County, Alabama, and Leah Nelson, the Research Director of Alabama Appleseed. They bring with them two unique perspectives and a boatload of passion for public defense.   Alabama does not have a universal indigent defense system and there is no obligation for any county in the state to operate a specific type of public defender system. Together, Adam and Leah talk about the specific challenges that this setup creates and how they work within this system.   Overall, Adam and Leah give advice to people who don't live in the south on how to move past their preconceived notions. After this episode, you'll look at southerners in an entirely new way!   Key Topics and Takeaways: Adam and Leah introduce themselves and explain their role in public defense. [9:02] An overview of the structure of Alabama's indigent defense system. [14:37] Witnesses and investigators. [20:15] Why there is a lack of treatment in prisons. [29:59] The top issues impacting public defense representation in Alabama. [32:45] Why a speedy trial isn't a guaranteed right under the Constitution. [35:52] Issues with fines and fees in Alabama public defense. [38:38] Alabama's indigency determination standard. [57:50]   Guests: Adam Danneman, Chief Public Defender, Jefferson County, Alabama, Leah Nelson, Research Director, Alabama Appleseed   Resources: Alabama Appleseed Report  New York Times Article Jefferson County Public Defender 1901 by Shake the Field with Felt Five Thompson is an impactful song about Alabama's white supremacist 1901 constitution. One of the rappers, Evan Milligan, is also the plaintiff in Milligan v Merrill, a case challenging Alabama's decision to pack Black voters into a single congressional district. This case will be argued at the U.S. Supreme Court on October 4th, 2022. Memorable Quotes:   “Do not leave behind the south, do not leave behind Alabama because you think it is not worth helping.” (7:15, Hunter)   “Making sure that people have qualified counsel is a high priority for me and for Apple Seed, but it's not a high priority for our legislature.” (16:30, Leah)   “One fair negative stereotype about public defenders, not just in Alabama, but everywhere, is that we're overworked.” (33:08, Adam)   “Pretty much every crime in Alabama comes with some financial penalty on top of maybe jail or prison time.” (39:11, Leah)   “We really undermine public safety and we undermine the independent judiciary and independent prosecution system when we force prosecutors and the courts to generate revenue for the state.” (53:46, Leah)   “We spend more money in Alabama, probably everywhere to collect this debt than it actually brings in if we recovered all.” (1:05:10, Adam)   Contact Hunter Parnell:hwparnell@publicdefenseless.com Instagram www.publicdefenseless.com

When Alice Milligan struck out on her own at the age of 19, she didn't plan on a career in finance. However, her dedicated work ethic, combined with the experience she accrued while working as an administrative assistant and putting herself through night classes to earn both a bachelor's and Master's degree, positioned her well to navigate the upper echelons of banking and marketing. As the Chief Marketing Officer of Morgan Stanley, Alice is leading the effort to evolve the brand in new and innovative ways. Partnering with Rebecca Minkoff, the recently released Rebecca Minkoff x Morgan Stanley Banker Bag is one such example that Alice hopes will provide women in finance with another tool to feel confident in themselves and their capabilities.

Being that Matthew Milligan is currently our most frequent guest, we tend to give him a little more leeway with his song choices. That being said, he chose Kid Sister and her minor 2008 hit “Pro Nails”. Prior to this episode, neither producer Matt Kelly nor myself had ever heard this song from the Chicago based artist, which is surprising because it features Kanye West during a very prolific era of his career. But hey, this is what One Hit Thunder is all about: discovering music we may have missed otherwise. So get your toes done up with your fingernails matchin', and join us for a deep dive into Kid Sister. If you like the show, be sure to rate, review, and subscribe.
