Ep: 3 Se 2 - David Shields talks about his film Marshawn Lynch a history.
I speak to David Shields about is new film Marshawn Lynch: A History which explores the silence that nonconformist NFL star Marshawn Lynch deploys as a form of resistance. Culling more than 700 video clips and placing them in dramatic, rapid, and radical juxtaposition, the film is a powerful political parable about the American media-sports complex and its deep complicity with racial oppression.Born and raised in in Oakland by a single mother, Lynch became an All-American, an All-Pro running back, and a Super Bowl champion, but over the last five years he has emerged as a nationally significant figure precisely because he has refused to “play the game” of being a dutiful, cliché-bound interviewee. Silence-as-rebellion has African-American roots tracing back to slavery, and it’s a gesture that has flourished spectacularly in Oakland, where Lynch is deeply involved in the betterment of his hometown and where “troublemakers” have changed the game generation after generation—from Jack London and Gertrude Stein to the Black Panthers, Hells Angels, and Oakland Raiders (where Lynch is now finishing his career) to Bill Russell and Curt Flood to Alice Walker and Ishmael Reed to Tupac Shakur, Ryan Coogler, and Boots Riley.

Latterly a luxury hotel-hopping International hobo, he hung out with Warhol yet is little known to those outside the world of fashion.

Bonus episode - Ep: 2 The Things that made England - Ska
Racial diversity is one of many facets that separates England from the other parts of the United Kingdom. While the UK’s White population totals over 55,010,359 or 87.1% according the 2011 census, just under 13% or over 7.5 million are non white. Over 90% of all British ethnic minorities live in England and most of them can be found in its cities of Birmingham, London, Leicester, Luton, Manchester, Wolverhampton, Bradford, Coventry and Watford. It’s the arrival of the first mass wave of non white immigrants in 1948 on the Empire Windrush, that really started modern England, a country comfortable enough to say its favourite food is curry and where “Jafacian” is could displace cockney as the dialect of the capitol’s kids. This episode is broadly about that viewed through the prism of one aspect of English culture, Ska. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
