No Guns (Part II): It’s More A Religion (#93)

No Guns (Part II): It’s More A Religion (#93)

Continuing my exploration of media about guns and our current gun culture. Not only has it been on all of our minds lately, but this is a subject I don’t want to let slip away from the public consciousness just yet. I feel like there’s a bit much to say, and not enough people saying it loudly enough.

While I could continue to wax poetic about how I feel strongly about this issue, it stands to reason that I will let the show speak for itself. But I do want to thank everyone who has been contributing (or drawing my attention to) media on this subject, and I’ll continue to include those kinds of submissions on the show. If you do want to participate, please send an e-mail: austinrich@gmail.com.

Let’s hope I don’t have to keep doing these for too much long.

Take care.

No Guns (Part I): This Isn’t Just A Mental Health Issue (#91)

No Guns (Part I): This Isn’t Just A Mental Health Issue (#91)

As I am often fond of saying on this show: “I don’t mean to get political. Except, that, I do.” And while I hate to become a show that is only immersed in current events, the issue of Guns and Gun Control in our culture seems to be reaching critical mass lately, and it is on my mind quite a bit right now.

So, here’s some stuff I gathered on the subject of guns, with the real motive being to play the extended cut from Negativland’s radio program from 1989 where they addressed this very issue. The last half hour of the program is a piece they made and broadcast, not just on their show, but for New American Radio, who originally commissioned the piece. Since the radio show is, well, their show, I’ve “rounded up” and included a good 30 minutes from the original three hour broadcast. I’ll probably dig out more from it as I continue my own journey into the subject.

But, for right now, enjoy this meditation of something a little more topical, mixed with some old shit, too.

Enjoy!
