A Nation at Risk - What Can We Do? | Richard Ford | #116

Stewarding Your Influence

Our Partner and Guest, Richard Ford, understood a great many years ago that it is important for Christian citizens to not shy away from politics, but to apply their faith to how they view government, it's role, and their own civic duties. This led to the founding of iVoterGuide, a rich resource to help prepare Christians for elections...and now with a tool to help them get to know and pray for their neighbors. Eric Johnsen, Partner and Co-host, joins the discussion. Richard Ford's bio. PinnacleForum.com Show Notes: https://pinnacleforum.com/2020/08/ul-podcast-116/

#12 Richard Ford on Flouncing and Failure

City of Books

Richard Ford is listing his failures. He wanted to be a lawyer in the US Marines. That didn’t work out. He wanted to be "a lawyer, period”. That didn’t work out. He became a writer – that certainly counts as a success for the Pulitzer Prize winner. Even so, between novels and short story collections he sometimes thought he was through with fiction and imagined doing other jobs. But he kept going, he tells Martina Devlin in the City of Books podcast for Dublin UNESCO City of Literature. And that’s been the case for half a century. Although when he’s between books, he claims to “flounce” around finding reasons not to work. Sorry For Your Trouble is his latest book, a short story collection published by Bloomsbury. https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/sorry-for-your-trouble-9781526620026/ Produced+presented by Martina Devlin with music by Daragh Dukes

Richard Ford, writing from the edges

Start the Week

The prize winning writer Richard Ford talks to Andrew Marr about his latest collection of short stories, Sorry for Your Trouble. Irish America is Ford’s landscape, and his characters contemplate ageing, grief, love and marriage: ‘great moments in small lives’. Ford was born in Jackson, Mississippi and has spent many years living in New Orleans – his characters, like himself, live far from the political centre of America.Professor of 19th Century Literature and Thought, Ruth Livesey, is also interested in life away from the centre in her study of provincialism in Britain. Condescension towards small town life can be traced back to the Victorian period. But the writer George Eliot, who spent her early life in Nuneaton in the Midlands, argued that ‘‘art had a responsibility to show a provincial life could be just as full of insight and moral courage as one on the great world stage.’Producer: Katy Hickman

Richard Ford — Three Glasses Of Wine, Two Best Friends, One Great Conversation | MTFP Ep.47

The More Than Fitness Podcast With Matt McLeod

Richard has been one of my longest friends and he's my first hometown friend that I've had on the podcast. We decided to have a couple of drinks, set up the mic, and just hope for the best. He's 25 years old, currently in school, and he's on the journey to becoming a doctor. He's (by far) the most eccentric friend I have and he could entertain a brick wall by talking to it, so I knew he'd be great for the podcast. I know that there are not as many people that will listen to this one since it was a more selfish episode, but I can promise you that this one will catch your attention within the first 5 minutes. It was genuinely a blast and I hope that shows once you listen to it. Enjoy! Connect With Richard: Well, you can't because he's weird and doesn't have any social media. Completely off the grid.
