Doubtcast 1: RUBBISH


Hello. Here is the first Doubtcast, for your enjoyment.

It’s an art, culture and philosophy podcast (I think) comprising broadcast journalism, audio blogs, music, and (mainly, it turns out) poetry. It’s hosted by me, Alexander Velky, and it’s about an hour and fifteen minutes long before it trails off into copyright-free medieval dance music.

Submissions were sought via my online network, and I was genuinely impressed by the quality and variety of responses to the brief. There were so many great things sent my way that I only had to record a couple of short poems of my own.

You can listen to the Doubtcast here:

Here are a list of the composite artefacts in the order they appear:

Pull My Finger – Patrick Moore is Less [Song]
Helen Goddard – The Bin [Poem]
Daniel Patrick Quinn – A Different Kind of Mountain [Broadcast Monologue]
Julia Indelicate – Hair Roller [Poem & Music]
David Nixon – Waste [Poem]
Mark Fiddes – [Untitled Poem]
Adam Bambury – [Untitled Poem]
Simon Indelicate – Rubbish Poem [Poem & Audio Blog]
Alexander Velky – Fresh Kills / Winsel Civic Amenity & Recycling Centre [Poems & Music]
Phil “Blogley” Ogley – Beer Cans: Recycling or Rubbish? [Audio Blog]
[Anonymous] – A Rubbish Song [Song]
[Anonymous] – [Copyright free medieval dance music]

In-between the above there’s a lot of pontification on the theme of rubbish, and the directions in which the concept is pulled by each of the above artefacts.
