Favorite Podcasts of 2017

Before I unveil my favorite podcasts of 2017, I'd like to reflect on the act of listening. When we are mindfully aware of our senses, we are rarely speaking. We are present in time and space and listening. These are moments when we hear the sound in the background, find meaning in a song or learn to distinguish bird song in the back yard.

Personally, I like podcasts because they build a visionary world with whatever is in front of the listener. The best bring the listener in via comments or twitter or landline phone calls.

Le Show

British history podcast

The BHP is a chronological retelling of the history of Britain with a particular focus upon the lives of the people. You won't find a dry recounting of dates and battles here, but instead you'll learn about who these people were and how their desires, fears, and flaws shaped the histories of England, Scotland, and Wales.


No Such Thing as the News / No Such Thing as a Fish

Hosted by Dan Schreiber (@schreiberland) with James Harkin (@eggshaped), Andrew Hunter Murray (@andrewhunterm), Anna Ptaszynski and an assortment of other elves.

Wild Ambience

Wild Ambience is a collection of pure nature recordings capturing the beauty of wild soundscapes from around the world. From the rhododendron forests of the Nepal Himalaya, to the pulsing rhythms of tropical rainforest in Borneo, the recordings are focused on specific locations and eco-systems with the aim of preserving the unique soundscapes of these disappearing habitats.

Wildambience – Audiobiography-wild-ambience
In addition to my own recordings, I am also gathering a collection of other outstanding natural bird sounds captured by other recordists which represent some of the most unusual and beautiful sounds on the planet. These other recordings are made available under various Creative Commons licenses (see each individual track for further license details). Many of these are featured on the group soundcloud.com/groups/incredible-sounds-of-nature .

Your Own Voice

A monthly non-narrated storytelling mixtape. The series is an experiment in sound design; audio stretched apart, and glued back together again. Part mix tape. Part noise art. Part sound experiment. All non-narrated audio storytelling. YOUR STORIES, TOLD IN YOUR OWN VOICE

Truly inventive, Your Own Voice is playful and insightful. No narration, so the subject is the only one heard.

One Room Schoolhouse

the power of tinkering - By Design introduces you to John Seely Brown, the co-author [with Douglas Thomas], of A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change. In this new book John Seely Brown is particularly interested in the idea of TINKERING. He suggests one of the best 'tinkering' models is the architectural studio - the place where students work together trying to solve each other's problems, and a mentor or master can also take part in open criticism. Find out why this is a model for us all.

Observations and Nevada Matters

Decoding Alice in Wonderland - On the 150th anniversary of Charles Dodgson taking deacon's orders at Oxford University, the mathematician and children's author (whose pen name was Lewis Carroll) is revealed to be more than a keen observer of church politics of his day as others have observed. He was also an inveterate seeker in esoteric spirituality, including Theosophy and Rosicrucianism. Canadian author and poet, David Day, tells all.

Indigenous Peoples

first australians - Produced by Australia's leading Aboriginal filmmakers, this astonishing series chronicles the birth of a country and the collision of two worlds. It's an epic story that comes alive through the struggles of individuals, both black and white. Beautifully filmed, the series blends landscape, art, interviews and first-hand accounts with a vast archival collection to present the birth of contemporary Australia as never seen before, from the perspective of its first people - the first Australians.

What is Living and What is Dead in Social Democracy?
For the last 30 years, in much of the English-speaking world (though less so in continental Europe and elsewhere), when asking ourselves whether we support a proposal or initiative, we have not asked if it's good or bad; instead we ask: is it efficient? Is it productive? Would it benefit gross domestic product? Will it contribute to growth? This propensity to avoid moral considerations, to restrict ourselves to issues of profit and loss - economic questions in the narrowest sense - is not an instinctive human condition. It is an acquired taste.

Rock of the ages


flourish - Martin Seligman, one of the world’s foremost academic psychologists – and founder of the Positive Psychology movement – visits the RSA to offer a new theory of well-being, and to call for a reinvention of governance, a rethinking of education and a revolution in our personal lives. Presenting evidence-based scientific research that shows us how to thrive, flourish and be happy, Seligman explores a number of practical examples of the power of Positive Psychology in action – such as forward-thinking schools that add resilience training to their curricula and public policy that is informed not by growth of GDP, but by the wellbeing of its citizens.

Koro Carman runs Footprints Waipoua - http://www.footprintswaipoua.com/ - which includes a spine-tingling night-time visit to the giant kauri Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua Forest. Koro says he started his company to create jobs for locals. He now employs over half a dozen and has expansion plans. As the stars shine through the spreading branches above, tourists are treated to karakia and waiata from the powerful voices of Koro and his guides. Along the way, they learn a little about what the forest flora and fauna mean to Maori.

Closing the Climb

To climb or not to climb? That's the moral dilemma that confronts tourists when they get to Australia's biggest cultural icon - Uluru. The large monolith stands in the middle of central Australia, and every year thousands of tourists make the pilgrimmage to see this spectacle in the desert.

About a third of the tourists who come to the National Park decide to climb Uluru. But now moves are afoot to close the climb and not everyone is happy, including the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who says it should remain open for people to make their own choice.

But why do people want to climb the rock? And why do Traditional Owners consider it offensive? These are all questions that Nicole Lee put to tourists and Park Management when she went to Uluru earlier this week.

In this report: Andrew Simpson, CEO of Anangu Tours, the only Aboriginal Run tour company to conduct tours around Uluru; tourists; Peter Cochrane, Director of National Parks and is on the board of management of the Uluru- Kata Tjuta National Park; Dino Magris, general manager of experiencial tourism development at APT

      http://www.dfi09.com - Mark Law, a Design for Industry student at http://www.northumbria.ac.uk created Element Radio as a new technology that would attract a younger audience to the radio media. The 23-year-old’s design features a WiFi radio docking station with a portable touch-screen component that allows listeners to instantly interact with the shows they listen to. Mark, from Wirral in Mersyside, said: “I noticed that I hardly listened to the radio anymore and asked myself why. Radio treats listeners as a passive audience but I wanted to design a radio that would view the audience as participating forces in the media itself. “Element Radio enables the user to influence what they are listening to. They can interact with show producers, voting for what song they want to hear next or discussing a celebrity interview and suggesting questions for presenters to ask. The screen would also display programme information, weather reports and sports results. Mark worked with the BBC’s interaction department on ways that my design could enhance the information and interactivity of the radio, without detracting from the audio experience. The project was designed as part of Mark’s BA (Hons) Design for Industry degree course, run by the School of Design. The four-year full-time course is targeted at students aiming to become professional designers of mass-produced products, moving on to influential positions in the organisations that will shape the future. It has a very strong vocational bias fostered by its close links with industry.
