Born Asking Questions
“We are capable of extraordinary cruelty”, says Richard Holloway, director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival and our guest this week on Litopia Daily. “Torture has come back in our day – the things we thought had been once outlawed have now been done in the name of our nation.” Most of us, of course, are neither monsters nor saints – we occupy the morally shifting middle ground, the area that Richard explores in his latest book, “Between The Monster and the Saint“. A prolific writer in addition to all his other duties, Richard is a self-confessed workaholic – so how does he go about his writing? And – why does he believe that more of us should concentrate on playing, and less on controlling others? A fascinating and insightful discussion – part three airs tomorrow.

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
