in SteemCoinPan โ€ขย  16 days agoย 

You likely have never even heard of "Religious Hardtalk" or Ian Boyne unless you're a true Jamaican.

There are plenty of reasons you should take a minute to learn a little more about this Jamaican media legend.

Ian Boyne ย  (1957-2017)

ย ย ย ย ย Ian Boyne was beloved by many Jamaicans, and has commanded the respect and admiration of both celebrities and politicians.

ย ย ย ย ย His various works have contributed much to Jamaican cultural history. He was known for being opinionated but fair, a strange paradox he somehow gracefully blended in "Religious Hardtalk."

ย ย ย ย ย He is most well-known for the "Profile" seasonal series on Television Jamaica, where he interviewed people with amazing stories.

ย ย ย ย ย In my opinion, Religious Hardtalk is Ian Boyne's best, but also most controversial project. I don't know why the show hasn't gained more international respect and viewership.

ย ย ย ย ย Even though the show was intended for a primarily Jamaican audience, the conversations and debates held on this show were internationally valuable, and still relevant.

ย ย ย ย ย For you Americans familiar with the Joe Rogan Podcast and the weight it carries within the USA, Ian Boyne held a similar place in Jamaican popular culture.

ย ย ย ย ย Most notably were appearances by controversial dub-poet Mutabaruka, a famous outspoken barefoot enthusiast Rastafarian. Muta and Boyne always clashed, but in a non-hostile and intelligent way, making for good viewing.

ย ย ย ย ย The show's namesake, "Religious Hardtalk," very much describes the content of the show. Mr. Boyne always had well-thought-out and hard-hitting questions for the guests, who came from various backgrounds, religions, movements and spiritualites.

ย ย ย ย ย Boyne never shied away from critiquing an answer he felt didn't satisfy his intellect. I still watch reruns of "Religious Hardtalk" to this day due to the program's no-gimmick approach.

ย ย ย ย ย Even as a devout Christian, Boyne didn't hesitate to ask fellow Christians the same hard-hitting intelligent questions as he asked other guest from different faiths, and that's an increasingly rare type of practitioner within Christianity.

ย ย ย ย ย Below I've placed some clips and shows from various guest's appearances on the program. They are all worth a short view if you want to get a feel for this man's character and intellect.

ย ย ย ย ย In conclusion, I really feel this show should command more international respect, and I hope you fellow Steemians can gain something from viewing some episodes of this show, especially if you've exhausted everything Netflix has to offer during your COVID-19 lockdown.
