The last in our 5 part series on Resonance FM. In this show Kit talks to David Dawkins (A Hackney Triptych) and Natalie Hardwick (Alevism in Hackney) about arriving in Hackney and London, the formation of instant communities and how the other half live (you know, the posh rich half)
We look at Hackney through the eyes of three different generations. 1970s, 1980s and the 2000s. Stories and anecdotes from three of our writers, Eithne Nightingale, Georgia Myers and Isaura Barbe Brown. Hosted by Kit Caless and Gary Budden.
We discuss psychogeography, its past, present and future.
Difficulties of terminology and the mainstream acceptance of certain forms of psychogeographic writing.
Featuring Stewart Home, Brendan Pickett, Gary Budden and Tim Burrows. Hosted by Kit Caless
Gary wrote a piece about the formation of Influx Press for the Occupied Times.

Kit was invited on to talk to Robert Elms about Acquired for Development By and Hackney’s changes a few weeks back.
It was a very interesting discussion and brought up some fascinating questions.
There are only 16 days left to listen to the podcast – but you can download it within those 16 days to your computer to put aside if you don’t have time.
Kit comes on at around 1 hour 6 minutes, but the whole show is very interesting and Hackney focused, so it’s well worth listening to it all.
Kit was invited to write a piece about Acquired for and the culture of dissent in Hackney.
So it’s finally here.
You can either order it online with us, from our online shop – or check our ‘stockists’ section on this website to find out which bookshops are currently selling.
We are very excited.
But that’s understandable right?
On Thursday, Kit was asked to come on Robert Elms’ show to talk about the gentrification of Hackney and Acquired for Development By…
Most of Robert’s show was talking about Hackney so it’s well worth listening to the first hour before the interview starts (there are a few non-related sections you can skip through should you wish).
You can listen to the show on the BBC iPlayer here:
The section with Kit starts at around 1 hour 7 mins.
Don’t forget, you can pre-order a copy of the Acquired For Development By from our online shop: http://influxpress.com/online-shop/
Kit will be on the Robert Elms show at 1pm today talking about Acquired for Development By.
If you can’t catch the show live we will post a link to the iPlayer episode when it’s up.
Here is a ‘trailer’ for our new book, “Acquired for Development By…” – short excerpts of our writers reading out their work in various parts of Hackney.
Order a copy of the book from our online shop today.
