Dr. Italy continues his "virtual tour" of sites on his upcoming Rhine pilgrimage, exploring the city of Speyer, Germany, in this 7 min. radio interview. Speyer has its beginnings in a Roman settlement, but in the early Middle Ages, it became an important center and imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire. Speyer's cathedral is one of the earliest and most magnificent examples of the architectural style know as Romanesque.
We knew that Over The Rhine's Nowhere Else Festival was going to be something special. We've heard about the meals, the music, the songs being sung under a big tent in their wide Ohio backyard. And yes, we grew up seeing Over The Rhine play show after breathtaking show under a similar tent at the Cornerstone Festival in West Central Illinois. We knew it would be great. But we were still not prepared for just how wonderful two days of understated, organic, family-style music could be. A steady drizzle of rain couldn't come close to dampening the spirits on that rural farm, and on this episode of the podcast, we do our best to take you there. One of the hallmarks of Nowhere Else is that Karin and Linford of Over The Rhine always assemble a treasure trove of talent to accompany them for their “musical family reunion.” This cast – often comprised of fellow Americana (and Americana-adjacent) artists they have met out on the road – play concerts, participate in writer rounds, and offer creative workshops and seminars. While some will usually be relatively familiar to fans of this kind of music – and at least one will have earned “legend” status – there will always be at least a few that are relative unknowns. Though she has been a regular at Nowhere Else in recent years, we were not familiar with soul / gospel / r&b artist and full-time “culture coach” Nikki Lerner until shortly before the festival. But after we attended her morning session, called “Finding Your Voice Through Improv,” we knew she needed to join us on the podcast. I'm sure you will find her just as brilliant, insightful, hilarious, and soulful as we have. And Bruce has loaded up the Jukebox with records from ALL of the artists on this year's Nowhere Else lineup. In addition to Nikki, you'll hear tunes from Iris Dement, Carrie Newcomer, Hayes Carll, The Winetree, Courtney Marie Andrews, Carolina Story, John Fullbright; Wille Tea Taylor, Ben Sollee, Vance Gilbert, and of course, Over the Rhine.

A cast and crew of middle school students put on an original play about cosmic heroes and deadly aliens. Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction Excerpt: “I am Exoplanetary Janet, Traveler of the Cosmos.” She raised her arm and swept her hand slowly from left to right. There was whispering at the back of the class. Two girls, so thick-as-thieves that they were more like one two-headed girl, glanced at Janet, then resumed whispering. One of them, Rhine, raised her hand. “Then why are you dressed like a cowgirl, Miss Winsome?” she asked. “Why not?” Storyfeather-themed merchandiseNew Creature designs for October 2022!T-shirts, mugs, stickers, notebooks, and more.

Foreground bottom, the silhouettes of figures seen from the back, mostly from shoulder-up, and surrounded by a glow of light. They are facing a stage. On stage at left is a girl, on her knees with arms outstretched. She wears a long coat and a hat. In front of her is a small worm-like creature with one large eye which is looking at her. In front of the girl is a small puppet of a worm-like creature. In front of that small creature is a larger worm puppet whose body takes up the whole length of the stage. A pair of humanoid legs can be seen under the large worm puppet. Lying along the worm's back, holding onto it is a boy wearing a clear helmet with a hose leading to an attachment on his belt. Alongside the large worm is another smaller worm. Behind that smaller worm is a tall robotic figure. Behind the robot is a kid in a costume that looks like hollow metal tubes from which a carrot head emerges. Behind them is a background painted with hills and a vague building in the distance.

In this 7 minute radio interview on the Sonrise Morning Show, Dr. Italy highlights a destination on his upcoming 2023 Rhine pilgrimage that is known for it's spectacular beauty - the city of Lucerne, Switzerland. But more than just the majestic setting of Alpine mountains and lakes, the city offers a long and rich Catholic history to explore. What many today don't realize is that the city has its roots in a monastery of the early Middle Ages, and unlike most of its neighbors, Lucerne stood firm in its Catholic faith during the tumultuous years of the Protestant Reformation.
He was born in Ireland to wealthy parents, who sent him to be educated at the Monastery of Bangor. There he embraced the ascetical life and became a monk. He was one of the twelve monks who traveled with his spiritual father St Columbanus (November 23) as missionaries to Gaul. In time some of the group traveled into pagan lands, up the Rhine river to Lake Zurich. The monks settled on Lake Constance around a chapel dedicated to St Aurelia, which had been taken by the pagans as a shrine; they cleansed and reconsecrated the chapel, which became the center of their new monastery. Saint Gall lived as a hermit, serving the brethren by making nets and catching fish. In 612 St Columbanus went on to Italy with most of his disciples, leaving St Gall and a few others to continue their life. When St Gall delivered Frideburga, the daughter of a local duke, from a demon, he offered the saint a tract of land on the shores of Lake Constance; here was founded the monastery that in later times bore St Gall's name. At various times, the holy Gall refused calls to become a bishop, or to take over the abbacy of the great monastery at Luxeuil. To all such requests he answered that he would rather serve than command. He continued living in his isolated monastic community until he reposed in peace in 640, at the age of ninety-nine. In later years, and continuing well into the middle ages, the Monastery of St Gall became famed for the holiness of its monks and for its library.

Earlier this year, two veteran creative directors – Ryan Summers and Brian Eloe – joined Denver-based creative agency Spillt, working with Owner and Executive Creative Director Ed Rhine. Summers comes from a motion-graphics background, while Eloe's work has mostly been in live action, but together, the team takes on all sorts of projects as they look to expand Spillt's clientele and expertise."The most unorthodox way is often the best way to find a solution," Eloe says.Rhine, Summers and Eloe join this episode of The Daily Brief Podcast to discuss how they collaborate to deliver the best work for clients, how they try to keep their egos out of their work, and what they see coming down the pike for entertainment marketing. (Hint: it involves Web3). And stay tuned until the end for a fun, thoughtful and off-the-cuff conversation about main titles.

This is Ini, Executive Producer of Up A River, which is about Lisa Cathcartt who believes in big, beautiful, ecstatic love. Correction: she believes in the kind of love that is big, beautiful, and fart-free. Her husband died when they were young, so she only got the very best of him. After his death, besides taking care of her kids, she relied on romance novels, specifically ones by lauded and bawdy author, Candace Bigbush, to scratch her romance itch. So, when her adult children gifted her a cruise on the Romantic Rhine - with the famed author who will show her and fifty others the amazing locations that inspired her seminal book, The Hero and the Heroine – she can't turn it down. The romantic Rhine and little push from the author help Lisa open up to new possibilities, new places, and potentially new love: like the tall, dark, handsome Captain Dalton. Dalton, until this point, has been married to the sea - or river - depending on what ship he's piloting. Yet, as retirement looms on the horizon he is forced to think about what is beyond the bow for his life. Could it be love? Could it be Lisa? Could it be tying himself to an anchor because getting old sucks? This is Episode 1 - Amsterdam, where we meet Lisa, Candace, the other passengers, and the delightful crew. Thank you for listening.

How does your thinking control your future? Does your thought have any control on the seeming randomness of events in your life. Here the great writer Harold Sherman explains in realistic terms how your thinking helps create your future. Harold Morrow Sherman (1898-1987) was world renowned in the field of psychic research, and conducted experiments with such prominent persons as well-known Arctic explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins, ESP pioneer Dr. J.B. Rhine of Duke University, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, and many others. Apart from his research into mental telepathy and the mysteries of the mind, Sherman's lifelong writing career encompassed best-selling books on a variety of subjects ranging from sports stories for boys to books on self-help and the afterlife. He also wrote plays, several of which were produced on Broadway, and co-wrote the screenplay for several Hollywood films. For decades Sherman was a popular New Thought lecturer, and in later years hosted annual ESP workshops that drew such guests as Uri Geller, Arthur Ford, Gloria Swanson and many other big names.

Why did Anno II gouge out the eyes of all his jurymen in Cologne, according to legend? In the second half of the 11th century, Anno II ruled over the city of Cologne. With a lively building activity in the city, he is immortalized in the cityscape to this day. Also art, culture and trade prospered under his rule. And the veneration of St. George gave Anno unprecedented greatness here on the Rhine.

The war which began in the Habsburg humiliation at Prague had arguably crystallized by the late 1630s, and thus begins perhaps my favourite period of the conflict! We now have battles raging in Northern Germany, where Johan Baner's Swedish-German force faced down Matthias Gallas' Imperials. Further towards the Rhine, Octavio Piccolomini watched the border near the Spanish-Dutch war, where Spain poured its resources into a never ending grinder of men and money. With Portugal and Catalonia showing worrying signs of disloyalty, what did the future hold for Spain as the anchor of the Habsburg alliance? Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III was just 29 when he assumed the throne. His 'gift' from his foes was to learn of the new Franco-Swedish alliance, signed in Hamburg in March 1638. Meanwhile, along the upper Rhine, the capture of Breisach gave the French a crossing on the German side of the river, and threatened the integrity of Bavaria. The flag of appeal was waved at Madrid, but the Spanish had little sympathy to spare for their Austrian cousins, being demoralised and defeated by the Dutch and French foes, the latter most devastatingly at sea, in 1639. All the little wars had certainly converged into one, and it's my pleasure to take you on a journey through its most incredible and fascinating sights!

In this 6 minute radio interview with Anna Mitchell of the Sonrise Morning Show, Dr. Italy begins a discussion on the vast topic of how the Catholic Church built Western civilization. Starting with the indomitable missionary monks of Ireland, he illustrates how they not only saved but helped build Western civilization by preserving and spreading literacy and literature across Europe. He also discusses how his upcoming Rhine pilgrimage will focus on this theme, and how many of the sites to be visited are crucial examples of it.

As Europe's historically dry summer continues, Matthew Kenyon takes a trip on the barge Mezzoforte, and talks to skipper Dirk Pols about the challenges of navigating as river depths fall. We hear from Cornelis van Dorsser of the Dutch Inland Shipping Association about how the industry is preparing for the continued impacts of climate change. Economist Saskia Meuchelböck tells us about the economic effects of the last major dry period, just four years ago, when a month of low water on the Rhine knocked 0.4% off Germany's GDP, and hydrologist Saskia Werners explains how barge captains, industry, importers and the public have to expect more of the same.

When famous poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was living with writer of ‘Frankenstein,' Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in Italy, he was said to be bereft over the deaths of three of his children, who had died soon after their births. One day, on June the 24th 1812, he went for a walk alone, and his wife later wrote of what happened to him in a letter to a friend. Shelley saw the figure of himself as he walked on the terrace, and it said to him, “How long do you mean to be content?” On another occasion, a friend was staying with them, Mrs. Jane Williams, who was described by Shelley's wife as ‘a woman of sensibility' who ‘has not much imagination and is not in the slightest degree nervous – neither in dreams or otherwise.' Mrs Williams was standing inside the house gazing out of a window that looked out onto the terrace, when ‘she saw, as she thought, Shelley pass by the window, as he often was, without coat or jacket. He passed again, as he passed both times the same way – towards which he went there was no way to get back except past the window again, except over a wall twenty foot from the ground. She was struck at seeing him pass twice thus, and looking out and seeing him no more, she cried, “Good God, can Shelley have leapt from the wall? Where can he be gone?” She was told that Shelley was not at the villa at the time. ‘She trembled exceedingly when she heard, and it proved indeed that Shelley had never been on the terrace and was far off at the time she saw him.' Shelley's final encounter with his doppelganger came when he was walking alone on the beach. Again, he encountered himself. On this occasion, the doppelganger was looking at him, but his hand was pointing out to the sea. Not long after this, Shelley's body would be found in the sea after he drowned while sailing back from Liverno in a storm in the bay of Spezia on July the 8th 1822. He was a month short of his 30th birthday. The boat had been custom built for Shelley in Genoa, but it sank. Some, including Shelley's friend Edward John Trelawney, said Shelley lacked the seamanship skills to have undertaken this 7-hour journey with two friends, retired Navy officer Edward Ellerker Williams and boat-hand young Charles Vivien. Richard Holmes of The Guardian however says, ‘Despite what Trelawny implied, Shelley had considerable experience sailing boats, from schoolboy expeditions up the Thames, to sailing single-handed down the Arno, the Serchio, and beyond Livorno out to sea. He had successfully survived perilous incidents on the Rhine in 1814, on Lake Geneva (with Byron) in 1816, and on the Pisan Canal (with Williams) in 1821,' however, crucially he adds, ‘It was true, however, that Shelley was a river sailor.' Mary Shelley later claimed in her ‘Note on Poems, 1822,' that the design of the boat had been defective, and had never been seaworthy. Says Richard Holmes, ‘Unknown to Shelley,' his boat ‘had a fundamental design-fault. A twin-master schooner could not simply be scaled-down to a small, undecked, open boat.' Some suggested Shelley's sadness over his children's deaths had led him to want to drown himself, while others suggested he had been attacked by pirates; but there were many who whispered that he been assassinated for political reasons while out to sea. Shelley's boat was found 10 miles off shore after the storm had sunk the boat. Some suggested it had been rammed, for one side was caved in. His friend Trelawny said that William's shirt was ‘partly drawn over the head, and he was missing one boot.' He felt that this meant Williams had been in the act of undressing for bed when he died. Shelley's father was a Baron in Parliament. Shelley was staunch in his own radical and outspoken anti-establishment political views. Biographer Richard Holmes says Shelley's political interests included ‘Radical reform of the Houses of Parliament, disestablishment of the Anglican Church, formation of trade unions, universal suffrage.' In a letter to a Mr. Leigh Hunt,

“There are different questions a young artist can ask,” says singer/songwriter Linford Detweiler of Over the Rhine. “One is, ‘What must I do to be famous?’” Detweiler warns that such a goal “swings the door open to all manner of destructive forces from both within and without.” He and his wife have instead chosen a less flashy musical road in which they “continue to grow over the course of an entire lifetime.” The name of Jehoiada isn’t readily recognized, yet it’s synonymous with a lifetime of dedication to God. He served as priest during the reign of King Joash, who for the most part ruled well—thanks to Jehoiada. When Joash was just seven years old, Jehoiada had been the catalyst in installing him as rightful king (2 Kings 11:1–16). But this was no power grab. At Joash’s coronation, Jehoiada “made a covenant between the Lord and the king and people that they would be the Lord’s people” (v. 17). He kept his word, implementing badly needed reforms. “As long as Jehoiada lived, burnt offerings were presented continually in the temple of the Lord” (2 Chronicles 24:14). For his dedication, Jehoiada “was buried with the kings in the City of David” (v. 16). Eugene Peterson calls such a God-focused life “a long obedience in the same direction.” Ironically, it’s such obedience that stands out in a world bent on fame, power, and self-fulfillment.
