What Would You Tell The Undecided?

When the next edition of Life Elsewhere first airs, we will be just two days away from the Presidential election. As unlikely as it may seem, there are still people who claim to have not made up their minds when it comes to casting their vote.  At this late stage, what would you tell someone who is still undecided? To find out if there is an answer to the question, we called upon some of our favorite contributors* to Life Elsewhere. And, to get a “fair and balanced” response, we went out of the studio, into the real world and posed the question to a random selection of people. The responses, although unrehearsed and unscripted are thoughtful and surprising. Make sure you do not miss the next edition of Life Elsewhere to hear if you agree with our guests’ answers to, “What would you tell the undecided?”

*Our favorite contributors: Dr. Jennifer, Mercieca, professor of communications; Dr. Binoy Kampmark, senior lecturer & researcher in Global Studies; Terry Morgan, entertainment entrepreneur; Sean Dunne, filmmaker; Steve Brodner, caricaturist; Mark Haskell Smith, author; Nancy Kells, musician; Gillian Gaar, author; Bob Ross, film & media critic; Wreckless Eric, musician Stephen O’Connor, author.

A Political Conundrum. A Controversial Book. And Cool New Music.

The biggest conundrum ever in US politics also happens to be the most controversial: The popularity of Donald J. Trump. Who are the people who turn out in unprecedented masses to attend his rallies? That was the question a young enterprising filmmaker decided would be the basis for his next documentary. The end result is Trump Rally by Brooklyn-based Sean Dunne who managed to get up close and personal with Trump supporters. His takeaway is unexpected and adds yet another layer to the conundrum of Donald Trump‘s popularity.

“I’ve never read ‘that’ word used so nonchalantly before!” Says Life Elsewhere host, Norman B, referring to the four-letter word Judith Rashleigh peppers her dialogue with. Judith is the antiheroine of Maestra, the first thriller from Lisa Hilton. The word in question is Anglo-Saxon for female genitalia and should be reclaimed by women, explains Ms. Hilton. Her unapologetic boldness has triggered controversy, with many reviewers declaring Maestra to be a more shocking and explicit than Fifty Shades of Grey. Hilton also happens to be a well-respected historian and biographer who reckons her “natural habitat is a library with a pen stuck in my hair”. So what prompted a self-described geek to delve into writing page after page of graphic sex, violence, and Anglo-Saxon words? Find out in the next edition of Life Elsewhere.

Also in the program, Norman B selects two new cool music releases and asks that you tell us what you think of them.

Controversy #1.

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 10.00.59 PM

After viewing Trump Rally, the skillfully produced documentary that zooms in on the people who believe Donald J. Trump should be the next President of the United States, it would be easy to mock and deride the enthusiastic fans of the bloviating billionaire. But Sean Dunne, the talented, youthful director of Trump Rally has a different take on the folks he trained his cameras on. Sean, a keen observer, has spent the last ten years, self-financing a series of thought-provoking documentaries, Trump Rally, being his latest directorial accomplishment. Getting up close and personal with the Trump supporters, and at one moment, mere inches away from a sweating Mr. Trump, Sean offers an alternate perspective to predetermined opinions. Make sure you don’t miss the next edition of Life Elsewhere with Sean Dunne and hear all he has to say about Trump Rally.
