End of Season 7

Our series of shows based around ‘Sin’ has come to an end, and we’ll be taking a break for a while. In the meantime, thank you for listening, and thanks to everyone at Resonance FM and the London Consortium for supporting us and making The Thread possible.

You can find archived recordings of most of our shows on this site, so please feel free to listen or download them. We’ll be filling in the gaps in this archive as we go, so keep checking back if the show you want to listen to isn’t yet available.

We welcome thoughts, feedback and ideas for future shows, so if you’d like to get in touch please drop us an email at radiothread [at] gmail.com.

The Thread Series 7: Sin

The Thread Series 7: Sin
Every Monday, 7pm–8pm, from 13th May for eight weeks, on Resonance 104.4fm.

Listen, Virtue, you’re a bit too late, the Garden party’s in dire straits, the bread’s been scoffed, the wine’s been downed, we sold off the collection plate. You bring anything? No? Didn’t think so. Take a seat, though, and listen. From the static modern dirge emerges the spectred howl of Sin!
Behind our apprehension of fetishism, mammalian sloths, lusty politicians, climate change and soap operas, the categories of ’sin’ and ‘virtue’ serve an organising function bolstering up, constricting and stratifying our legal, political, social and physical bodies. Tune in for 8 shows exploring, tracking and extracting some of the infinitesimal shards of the moral compass smashed in the Enlightenment.

The Thread Series 6: Storage

Every Tuesday, 7pm–8pm, from 5th June – 3rd July, on Resonance 104.4fm.

How do we keep things and why? What are the problems and the joys of storage? In this new season of The Thread, we look at the things we put aside but can’t forget about, such as toxic waste and dead bodies, and the things we want to keep forever but can’t, like energy and memories. What we can’t or won’t throw away speaks volumes about our culture.
