America has spoken, so Heavy has his own episode this week to talk about crappie filets, documentaries, and what ever else suits him. He’s always maintained that he is America’s favorite and the one and only. So it only made sense to give loyal listeners and future generations a special episode dedicated to Heavy.
To get the ball rolling, Heavy shares with you his favorite way to prepare Crappie filets. Get out those index cards to write down this info so that you can pass it on down to your grandkids. Then Heavy engages in some international diplomacy with our Australian and Ecuadoran listeners. Find out what Heavy knows about Australia and Mel Gibson’s ranting.
Heavy has recently watched a movie based on the life of British Colonel Percival Fawcett called the Lost City of Z, so he shares his thoughts on it and the role of historical timeline proximity and how it shapes generational perceptions of events.
Having rewatched the Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary and as he currently watches the Vietnam series, Heavy has thoughts about documentaries and the work of Ken Burns. He ponders the narrative challenge to stay neutral in telling of historical events. Then he turns his attention to a recent TED Talk he watched regarding America being founded on the principal of genocide. He discusses the plight of the Native American’s, Depression era lynchings, the American Indian Movement’s occupation of both Alcatraz and Wounded Knee as well as the 24 hour news cycle. And once again William F. Buckley is referenced in regard to the Huey Newton episode of Firing Line.
