    Stephen Fry has a problem with dancing. In this second Podgram episode Stephen reveals his long held feelings on this universal human activity and confesses to a litany of reasons why he hates it. For the past six months, Stephen has been filming a new series in America for the BBC. The idea is to visit every one of the fifty states that make up that great union. The series examines the individuality of each state and also delights in getting to know Americans, whom are so much more than wearisome clichés. You can’t travel extensively across that nation without wanting to sample some of the great musical roots of many genres starting with Blue Grass, Jazz, Cajun, Blues, Rock n’ Roll, House, Motown, Gospel and Seattle Grunge to name but a few. With all that music around him, you might expect Stephen to have a dance.

    Hi Stephen,
    Just started listening to your podgrams…love them! And I couldn’t agree with you more about dances…unfortunately I was forced to go to every single dance in high school. Absolutely miserable time for me, and consequently, the young man with whom I was forced to go. And “Lord of the Dance,” I also had to sing that in grammar school and always hated it. It seemed much to happy and dance-y and tune for a song about crucifixion. Look forward to hearing more!

    Hi Stephen,

    I am a new listener. I am wondering how you feel about Frank Zappa’s music? It is not good for dancing, but very good listening.

    Your musings start me thinking about things new ways. I like that.
