  • Anna Borzello, Dancing on the Foreshore, Part 2

    8 FEB. 2023 · Part 2 of Anne Marie's interview with Anna Borzello about her years foraging along the foreshore for remnants of the lives of everyday people, breadcrumbs that lead to snapshots of the past, bringing into sharper focus the commonplace, for the times, routines of ordinary people. Anna is a crafty historian, able to spin an engaging narrative around each artifact she finds. In this episode, Anne Marie talks to  Anna Borzello. Previously, she worked as the BBC correspondent for Focus in Africa in Uganda from 1995 to 2001. These days you can find Anna on the River Thames foreshore foraging for historical artifacts which tell the story of London’s expansive history. Anna admittedly plans her life around the river’s tides. Before she commits to doctor’s appointments, lunch dates, fill in the blank, she first consults the tide charts. Low tide wins out every time. It was such a pleasure to talk to Anna about her experiences as a mudlark along the Thames foreshore, and I think you will see why, not only is she well-versed on London’s history,  she is absolutely delightful!

  • Christopher C. Gorham, Who Was Anna Rosenberg?

    10 ENE. 2023 · In this first episode of 2023, Anne Marie interviews Christopher C. Gorham, high school history teacher and author of The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America. This relatively unknown history is about a woman who yielded a great deal of political power throughout much of the 20th century, and whose legacy is little known. Who was Anna Rosenberg, and why don't we know about her? A true confidante is one in whom your secrets are safe, and Anna was the true and trusted confidante to politicians in high places on both sides of the isle.  Anna was not the type to kiss and tell. She knew how to keep a secret, which meant her memoir would be kept undercover...until now. Christopher C.
