Welcome to episode 11, and the first 30-minute edition of Un-Herd archives. This one goes all the way back to January 26, 2009, featuring the spazz-jazz duet called Thicket. This band features the most frequently appearing guest of Un-Herd, drummer John Niekrasz, of notables such as Naked Future and Why I Must Be Careful. On alto saxophone we have Ben Kates, a long time collaborator with Niekrasz, in bands like Fly Fly Fly Fly Fly, and Naked Future. Ben is missed in the Portland avant-garde scene as of this retrospective while teaching elementary students in Alaska. With that, please enjoy, Thicket.

Annie Barrows, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society
Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Annie Barrows, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society, a novel of love and intrigue on an island in the English Channel in 1946.
Mary Ann Shaffer became interested in Guernsey while visiting London in 1976. On a whim, she decided to fly to Guernsey but became stranded there when a thick fog descended and all boats and planes were forbidden to leave the island. As she waited for the fog to lift, warming herself by the heat of the hand-dryer in the men's restroom, she read all the books in the Guernsey airport bookstore, including Jersey under the Jack-Boot. Thus began her fascination with the German Occupation of the Channel Islands.
For International Women's Day, the women of the Old Mole Collective, led by host Denise Morris, take up issues confronting women in the building trades and their creative ways of dealing with them; women in the movie industry and a current film written and directed by a woman; and "The Science of Gender and Sex," the topic of this year's Gender Studies Symposium at Lewis & Clark College. In addition, Denise features the music of Yoko Ono in the breaks between segments.
For this International Women's Day show, Movie Moles Frann Michel and Jan Haaken discuss the film "Fish Tank," written and directed by Andrea Arnold and showing through Thursday at Cinema 21. Frann and Jan also discuss "the male gaze" and other issues around the presence of women in film making.
