For most folks it’s been a little over a week of self isolation to ward off the coronavirus pandemic. Marooned in our own places like the Swiss Family Robinson, we have to make the best of what we got, and it sometimes feels like things may never get back to that dirty word “normal.”

Today queer media pioneer Jack Ryan joins us to chat about his adventures in Chicago’s club scene in the 70s and 80s before the AIDS crisis hit hard.

Listen as Jack talks about the wild nights of drugs and disco that transformed over the years into more nights of even drugs and House music, what kind of changes can we expect in the aftermath of coronavirus and will we ever wear pants again?

Plus--

➤ How long will your toilet paper supply last? Don’t worry, the Germans will tell you.

➤ Madonna deletes naked bathtub “We are all the same” video.

➤ A wild puma is caught in the capital city of Santiago, Chile.

➤ Farewell to our dear friend and family Terrence McNally, multiple Tony-Award winning playwright died from complications from coronavirus, he was 81.

Uncle Jack Charles- National treasure, respected Elder, Grandfather of Aboriginal Theatre, father to all who need him.

Hang On To Your Hat
Episode artwork
Read more

Uncle Jack isn’t a Dad in the usual sense but he’s certainly the grandfather of Aboriginal theatre and a spiritual father to many indigenous and non-indigenous people alike. Uncle Jack is an Australian icon and a truly beautiful man- look him up, watch his movies and TV (especially the documentary “Bastardy”), read his Autobiography (Born again black Fella) say hello to him in the street. He really is a father to all those who need him. Donate to the Archie Roach Foundation if you’d like to support the incredible and vital work that Uncle Jack and Uncle Archie are doing.

Uncle Jack: Manhattan Project and Beyond Narrated by Tim Gray

From The Front To The Films: A World War II Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

For me the Manhattan Project was personal: One of those assigned to the project was my uncle John Edmund Gray, a University of Rhode Island graduate with a brilliant mind.

John Gray grew up in the industrial city of Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

He had a strong interest in the field of engineering from a young age and not only was recruited to work on the Manhattan Project during World War II, but would later in life serve as an advisor to several presidents of the United States on the topic of Atomic energy.

John, known to close family as Jack, was one of four children born in Rhode Island in 1922.

After high school, he worked for one year at the Woonsocket Rayon Company, a local firm in the Rhode Island city where he grew up.

In 1943 he earned a B. S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Rhode Island, where he worked several campus jobs to help pay expenses. After college John became a participant in the Manhattan Project.

Hundreds of men were assigned by the government of the United States to lend their minds to producing the first Atomic bombs, but the majority had no idea at the time what their skills were being utilized for since the project was beyond the level of “top secret”.

The eventual goal of the Manhattan Project was to find a way to end World War II, a conflict in which an estimated 50-70 million people were killed during the years 1939-1945.
