Darryl Morris Weekly – 26.02.21 – Small Talk

I am at Tesco, minding my own business and studying the courgettes. “Darryl!” cries a voice at the other end of the aisle. Oh, sh*t. Somebody I know. Somebody I know who wants to have a conversation. Somebody I know who wants to have a conversation through masks, two meters

Darryl Morris Weekly – 19.02.21 – Lockdown Easing Surgery

Humans like things to be simple. We like clear winners and losers, beginnings, middles and ends, good guys and bad guys. We shun complexity – or ambiguity – in favour of simple explanations that make us feel like we understand the world. The handling of a public health crisis is

Darryl Morris Weekly – 12.02.21 – Consequences

“Is this the start of the new order that we’ve been promised?” barked Eileen, calling from Liverpool with a well-worn theory; that somebody, somewhere is crafting a new world order and we’re all puppets in their game. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get to the bottom of who they are – or

Darryl Morris Weekly – 18.12.20 – Freedoms. Again.

We ask ourselves a lot of questions when we’re putting the show together. Should we talk about this? Is this helpful? Is it responsible? Does it make good radio? Is it interesting? Does anybody care?

Darryl Morris Weekly – 27.11.20 – Oh Tier, What a Mess

Imagine my excitement today, at finding something new in a story that’s becoming exhaustingly repetitive. I haven’t seen a single newspaper headline, tweet or Facebook status using the pun ‘Oh Tier, What a Mess’. The only thing more tiresome than the COVID measures themselves are the puns. If my single
