Welcome to the Devils Porridge Museum Podcast!

 

The Devils Porridge Museum Podcast has been created as part of an inter-generational oral history project. The project is now available for you to listen to online.

 

Through conversations and interviews, our volunteers and others from the local community will be sharing their personal stories and memories with The Devils Porridge Podcast Team.

 

In this weeks podcast we talked to David Dutton about Oswald Mosely and fascism in South West Scotland. David was meant to give a talk at the Museum about this subject but it was cancelled due to COVID-19 so we decided to get him on the podcast to tell his story instead!

 

At least in the early part of the decade Fascist ideas were not entirely beyond the political pale. Recent research suggests that the BUF made some progress in Scotland and that the south-west of the country was briefly a Fascist success story. Against this background this talk assesses the visits to Dumfries made by Sir Oswald Mosley and his Director of Propaganda, William Joyce, later notorious as Lord Haw-Haw.

 

If you would like to get involved in the project to share your own stories and memories or if you would like to find out more about joining our production team please contact: steven@devilsporridge.org.uk
