    We've had a couple Slack discussion of podcasts with mixed opinions and limited recommendations, so since I'm procrastinating thought it was time to collect the best cut of podcasts I listen to since it's hard to get so many across in a chat. Started listening to podcasts when I had lab work that didn't require a lot of thinking, then during field work, and while driving. I now mostly listen while walking/busing to work and cooking. I think it's well understood that podcasts have become a medium in their own right, similar to radio but with flexibility that radio does not typically afford. There's two major release formats here, I'll call ongoing (regular release) and series (either released as a limited set of episodes, or sets of episodes each with a single clear arc), and a number of styles. The broad styles I engage with most are reportorial, which involves direct reporting on something current, documentary, which may involve original research or reporting but gathers from other sources and has a much more structured narrative, and interview. There's also shows that are live, use more fiction, etc. Ongoing This American Life Style: Reportorial/documentary/other Maybe the most well-known "podcast", it's a weekly 1-hour radio show hosted by Ira Glass where each episode is loosely organized around a particular theme and typically involves multiple shorter stories. Often engages with stories in the news, sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly. Recommended episodes: NUMMI, Fiasco! 99% Invisible Style: Documentary Roman Mars has been hosting this show since 2010 and is really at home in the podcast audio format. It tells stories of design - the "built world" - through many different vantages. Typically one thinks this means things like architecture or city planning, but they've done an amazing job expanding what design can mean. In exploring the history of how aspects of our environment came to be, 99% Invisible also examines the social implications of things we usually take for granted. Recommended episodes: Wild Ones Live, Devil's Rope, Invisible Women Gravy Style: Reportorial/documentary Warm podcast by the Southern Foodways Alliance which focuses on reporting on current and past stories involving food in the American South to capture broader social issues and changes. Emphasis on immigration, poverty, and the African-American experience. Longform Style: Interview Interviews with non-fiction writers/journalists on the work they do. The interviews are usually around an hour, and focus on the experience of writing and researching longform narrative and how each journalist got to where they are in their careers. Listening to this show has helped me find podcasts, magazine articles, and books as well. Recommended episodes: Ben Taub, Ta-Nehisi Coates Radiolab Style: Documentary Similar to This American Life, with a focus on digging up interesting stories involving science, technology, and the social issues. Usually sensible in their approach, but as an American show they're sometimes guilty of going for the more sensational take, and it's playful with the audio production. There's a few "spinoff" series as well. Recommended episodes: The Fact of the Matter, Dinopocalypse! Library Talks (Formerly New York Public Library Podcast) Style: Live interview NYPL hosts live interviews with writers and creators of various sorts, and makes these available as podcasts. Their interviewer Paul Holdengraber fosters really thoughtful discussions while letting the storytellers among his guests perform. Recommended episodes: Werner Herzog, John Waters The Memory Palace Style: Short narrative Under 10-15 minutes an episode, Nate DiMeo takes portrait-scale stories from American history with a clear sense of the moral implications which resonate today. It's a very original show and part of the collective "Radiotopia", which includes 99% Invisible. Recommended episodes: "Notes on a plaque, still imagined", The Met Residency series (esp. if you're visiting The Metropolitan in NYC) Series A Piece of Work Style: Documentary A fun art podcast, in each episode Abbi Jacobson (of Broad City) tells the story of a particular type of contemporary/modern art, helping the listener experience the context, intention, and beauty of the pieces which are discussed. Caliphate Style: Documentary Documentary from NY Times following investigative journalist Rukmini Callimachi, it shines a light on how the War on Terror is conducted and how ISIS recruits in the West. Hardcore History Style: Historic narrative The original history podcast, every episode release is an event for his cult following. Dan Carlin's obsession with the extremes of the human experience might turn some off, but his sense of fascination brings a vividness to the exploration of history's catastrophes that has no equal. The lengths of the episodes have reached monstrous proportions (over 4 hrs / episode, with 4-6 episodes in a given series), as have the waits between episodes (the current rate is about 2 per year). Older series have to be purchased, although the last few series are available for free. Recommended series: Ghosts of the Ostfront The History of Rome (THoR) / Revolutions Style: Historic narrative Mike Duncan's approach is less sensational than Dan Carlin's, taking a more comprehensive narrative approach, and his style helps with working through the details of history. THoR started off as a very amateur effort, and has a total of 179 episodes, so I'd recommend starting with one of the more digestible Revolutions series which he started later. Revolutions has looked at well-known revolutions like the American, French, and now Russian revolution, but it's also focused on lesser-known ones like the Haitian and July revolutions. Recommended series: Haitian revolution, French revolution S-town Style: Reportorial Engrossing, suspenseful non-fiction story in a small Alabama town. Populated with extraordinary characters, the show has been charged as being voyeuristic for reasons which soon become obvious..

    favourites: the guy to the left of the stairs next to the letter L, with both hands risen and in a state of intense implosion; the pointing guy immediately across the stairs from him, who's the most pissed off person in the whole pic but still not bothered to stand up; one down and one left from the previous, the guy that points to the sky and whose face is nothing but an open mouth, which open mouth may be a portal to another dimension, quite possibly hell; one down and one left from the previous, the person who I choose to believe is an immensely buff and perfectly unbothered lady; immediately by Vardy's elbow, a footy version of Uncle Sam; two down and one left from the previous, an actual bronze bust of Julius Ceasar that grew a washed-out-t-shirt-clad body.

    Dear Friends, Having observed our impotent response to the solicitation of Dr. Vecht for radical and current literature which might awaken him from his liberal complacency, I took it upon myself to seek out a number of recent works which might serve to better educate our politically removed friend. The suggestions are not exhaustive, but simply a starting point, especially since these concern social phenomena as they exist primarily in the American republic rather than the wider world. I do highlight a number of features which I applied in searching for appropriate texts, and which I believe should be met by any other works you may sponsor for this association. The texts shall: Be current, being published in the last 5-10 years, and being concerned with real affairs of present-day society. Address issues which affect the society-at-large, so that any incorporation of journalism or memoir regarding the unique circumstances of individuals must serve to complement discussion of larger, statistically demonstrable trends. Not be so esoteric as to be unavailable except to the private collector or one with access to a research library. Be written or available in the English language, as this society is motivated by the democratic view that even the less cultured of the Templars may be able to contribute to our discussions. I wish to propose no other criteria, although I shall happily accept others for discussion. Regarding the structure of this association, I believe a loose affiliation should suffice, so that the members should not carry its obligations as a burden. There is no need for a scheduled discussion time, or commitment or schedule for completing the agreed-upon text. We should simply prepare a text discussion thread or channel to which members can contribute as they please. Additionally, admission to the text discussion thread should not be restricted to those who have made the full commitment, and even those who have not obtained a copy of the text should be welcome to participate. The main purpose of the association should be to select a book with sufficient appeal to the members, and to add to the act of reading a positive social aspect. Having now stated the purpose for the association, proposed a number of criteria for the literature, and detailed a structure, I now invite the Templars to declare their interest and suggest amendments. I include below the suggestions described above and await your replies. Yours truly, Hon. Sogg E. Frog, Order of the Bouvetoya Enclave An attached list of suggestions Stamped from the Beginning (Ibram X. Kendi, 2016, 592 pgs.) The Sixth Extinction (Elizabeth Kolbert, 2014, 336 pgs.) The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee (David Truer, 2019, 526 pgs.) Evicted (Matthew Desmond, 2016, 418 pgs.) The New Jim Crow (Michelle Alexander, 2010, 290 pgs.) Rage Becomes Her (Soroya Chemaly, 2018, 364 pgs.) The Fifth Risk (Michael Lewis, 2018, 219 pgs.)
