Bournemouth Backchat Episode #31 — Obesity, COVID-19: The Second Coming, and Heroes & Legends

It's among our numerous recurring themes on Bournemouth Backchat to think of ways to solve worldwide issues. This season, we have already debated ways to resolve racism, whitewashing history, and human stupidity. And it's the turn of obesity this week, courtesy of James...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #30 — Video Games, Autonomy, and Celebrities in Politics

This week, Dale tries to convert Aaron, who has never owned a games console, into a gamer. Aaron, in turn, ponders over other states and societies following suit with Capitol Hill, Seattle and becoming autonomous, policeless zones. Following examples also forms a trigger for James' topic, as he discusses if other celebrities should take a leaf from Marcus Rashford's book and get more involved in politics...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #29 — Whitewashing History, and Knowledge is Power

Aaron and James joined forces on a dual topic in this week's episode of Bournemouth Backchat, coming together to talk about the world's recent attempts at whitewashing history. Whether that's in the form of mobs ripping down statues (and the fears for local heroes such as Robert Baden-Powell), or taking down certain episodes of much-loved sitcoms and films, which were just products of their times...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #28 — Workplace Bullying, Racism, and A New Religion

It has been a bit difficult to be irreverent or make light of the issues affecting Bournemouth and the rest of the world this week when they've been so intense. But our podcasting trio gave it a good bash all the same. And so a discussion about racism, and what can and should be done about it, features as one of the segments for this week's episode...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode 27 — Free Speech, Literary Festival and Hypocrisy and Power

Looking back on previous episodes of our podcast, Bournemouth Backchat, where certain words needed bleeping for the sake of our own safety, sparked the idea for our first topic. That in which James reflects on one of the most recent tragedies in the journalistic world -- namely the Charlie Hebdo shootings on 2015 -- and the matter of free speech...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #26 — Trolls, Exploiting a Crisis, and Emigration

Aaron begins proceedings with a discussion of trolls and social media addicts. What fuels such malicious behaviour on their part? Next up, James, ever the capitalist, looks into ways in which crises have been exploited in the past, and how we might take leaves out of their book for exploiting the current one. And then Dale, more and more disillusioned by the UK, contemplates emigrating... but to where, and why?

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #25 — Becoming an Influencer, Learning from the Older Generation, and Brave New World / 1984

Our author-in-residence Dale Hurst kicks the episode off, once again contemplating his purpose in life and debating if he should take up Aaron's suggestion of becoming a vlogger or social media influencer. And if so, what would he do? Maybe some cooking demos like he used to before? Or then again, maybe something in the literary line...

Bournemouth Backchat Episode #24 — Coronavirus: It Could Be Worse, Redesigning Schools, and Civil Disobedience

We hope you listeners have enjoyed the guest co-presenters as much as we did; indeed, we loved it so much that we plan to repeat the idea in future editions. But for now, Bournemouth Backchat returns to its old three-presenter format. The "old normal", if you will...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...

Christchurch FC: Journey to the FA Cup

Christchurch FC kicked off their campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over division foes, Bashley. In the second round, the Hurn Bridge outfit welcomed Dorchester Town, who sit two divisions above them in the Southern League South. This match-up didn't daunt Christchurch, who very much dominated the majority of the game. They needed Dorchester to clear the ball from their goal-line twice, before getting a well-deserved 89th minute winner...
