Wherever you turn, it seems like someone’s angry -- on Facebook and cable news, in street marches and congressional town halls. It would seem that we’ve entered a new era of increased hostility. But how did we, as a nation, get here? Is it possible we’re addicted to outrage? This hour, we explore the advantages and perils of getting mad as hell. [Original Broadcast Date: March 29, 2017] 1.

In this hour, the cold war is over and democracy has begun. But the past is still with us in Russia. British TV Producer Peter Pomerantsev found that out when he was invited to move to Moscow to develop a Russian version of the west´s popular reality shows. He tells Steve Paulson it was unlike anywhere he´d ever worked. Next, ballet is performed all over the world, but in Russia ballet is the route to stardom. Jennifer Homans wrote the first definitive history of ballet, called Apollo´s Angels. She tells Anne Strainchamps what makes ´´The Nutracker´´ one of the world´s most popular ballets.After that, Siberia is enormous, but Ian Frazier has crossed it all, from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean, in a barely functioning van. He tells Jim Fleming about his Travels in Siberia. And finally, films about the cold war were a staple of the American film industry for decades, symbols of the Atomic Age. Jim Hoberman is the senior film critic for the Village Voice and writes about cold war films in a book called An Army of Phantoms: American Movies and the Making of the Cold War. He tells Anne Strainchamps about a film called The Next Voice You Hear. [Broadcast Date: May 25, 2012] 1. Language: English.

´How I loved reading Liv Strömquist´s Fruit of Knowledge . Mostly, this was down to its sheer, punchy brilliance ... If her strips are clever, angry, funny and righteous, they´re also informative to an eye-popping degree ... Every page is so fantastically acute´ Rachel Cooke, Observer Graphic Novel of the Month From Adam and Eve to pussy hats, people have punished, praised, pathologised and politicised vulvas, vaginas, clitorises, and menstruation. In the international bestseller Fruit of Knowledge , celebrated Swedish cartoonist Liv Strömquist traces how different cultures and traditions have shaped women´s health and beyond. Her biting, informed commentary and ponytailed avatar guides the reader from the darkest chapters of history (a clitoridectomy performed on a five-year-old American child as late as 1948) to the lightest (vulvas used as architectural details as a symbol of protection). Like Alison Bechdel and Jacky Fleming, she uses the comics medium to reveal uncomfortable truths about how far we haven´t come. ´Just the thing for all the feminists in your life´ Observer Books of the Year ´This book made me laugh in public (and also cry a little). It is the book I gave to my younger sister the next time I saw her because of its anger and brilliance and because it is an overwhelming source of knowledge about things we should all already know´ Daisy Johnson, author of the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted Everything Under ´There are moments of genuine hilarity, as when Strömquist pictures the dinner party chatter of men living under a matriarchy, and others of fierce anger in this wild, witty and vital book´ Observer Books of the Year
