    Welcome to Sotheran’s, one of the oldest bookshops in the world, with its weird and wonderful clientele, suspicious cupboards, unlabeled keys, poisoned books, and some things that aren’t even books, presided over by one deeply eccentric apprentice.

    Some years ago, Oliver Darkshire stepped into the hushed interior of Henry Sotheran Ltd (est. 1761) to apply for a job. Allured by the smell of old books and the temptation of a management-approved afternoon nap, Darkshire was soon unteetering stacks of first editions and placating the store’s resident ghost (the late Mr. Sotheran, hit by a tram).

Judy Dempsey on EU

Come on Judy, sticking up for the status quos of Europe today. France & Germany? In That the EU “right wing”is a scary monster painted like CBS covers DJT. Same media, insane think tank foundations flipped to left-wing activism.
Europe is over-run by Marxist & Muslim refugees destroying individual culture, who’s military is a shadow

Please respect long-form spoken word

I have listened to John Batchelor off-and-on since 2007. My bona fides: Midnight, the Stars, and You” was often his buffer music at that time. I do not understand the 8 to 15 minute segment format. It is like the Babylon Bee said, “What long-form, spoke word, thoughtful person could we use as the centerpiece of a bit in which they are put into a cable news platform.” Just make the segments at least 30 minutes which would respect the orator, the radioman, that John is.
