English Heretic curated shows for Repeater Radio
I recently curated two evenings of talks, interviews and music for Repeater Books in support of their new anthology, The Repeater Book of the Occult. Here is an archive of some of the programmes from those nights.

Perhaps worthy of investigation is another collision of synchronicities on the 22nd of November 1963 — the simultaneous deaths of Brave New World author Aldous Huxley and Christian fantasy writer C.S. Lewis. Both died within hours of Kennedy. Into this perichoretic brew, two pop programmes were also launched within a day of the assassination — the Beatles’ second studio album and the first episode of Doctor Who.
