Recently enjoyed podcasts 2010

Still catching up on my subscriptions, which are sized a little large for someone who no longer commutes or takes many plane flights. Despite that, I'm keeping the list I have because the content is just so frequently rewarding when I do make the time to listen.

Productivity

"David Allen - Guided GTD Mind Sweep"

 

History

Love love love the British Museum/BBC series A History of the World in 100 Objects. Here are some favorite episodes:

"Early Writing Tablet"

"Lachish Reliefs"

"Sphinx of Taharqo"

"Oxus Chariot Model"

"Head of Augustus"

"Warren Cup"
"Last week we looked at power and how it was exercised around the world 2000 years ago. The theme of this week's programmes is pleasure, social activities. We're spinning the globe again, taking in pipe smoking and ball games in north and south America and in China a kind of Debrett's guide to court etiquette for women. We start and end the week, though, with the Roman empire and with spice, both actual and metaphorical. We end with pepper and we're going to begin with porn."

"Hoxne pepper pot"

"The David Vases"

"Icon of the Triumph of Orthodoxy"

"Shiva and Parvati Sculpture"

"Durer's Rhinoceros"

 

Science, Technology, Education, Design

Some great bites from Scientific American's 60-Second Science:

"Last Supper Keeps Swelling"

"Climate Change Ups Infectious Disease Risks"

"Synchrotron Focuses on New Hominid Fossil"

"Cheap Photovoltaics Wins M.I.T. Clean Energy Prize"

"Baby Coral Home In by Sound"

"Entomophagist Calls for Cricket Casseroles"

"And the Weirdest New Species Are..."

"Bone Marrow Transplant Stops Mouse Version of OCD"

"Construction: Don't Hold the Rice"

"Tech Team Puts Microscope on Cell Phone"

"Encourage Walking with Urban Planning"

"Copying Butterfly Wing Scales Could Fight Forgers"

"Vodka Brand Differences May Reflect Water-Alcohol Arrangement"

"Male Voice Good Indicator of Physical Strength"

"Ostriches Offer Clues to Dinosaur Motion"

"Later School Start Time Leads to Better Students"

"Design Boosts Chances for Air-Powered Motorcycle"

"Sports Results Affect Voter Behavior"

"Mass Transit Encourages Exercise and Weight Loss"

"Arctic Genes Make Vaccines That Can't Stand Heat"

"Clothing That Can Record or Produce Sound"

 

TED Talks

"Eve Ensler: Embrace your inner girl"

"Derek Sivers: Weird, or just different?"

"Fabian Hemmert: The shape-shifting future of the mobile phone"

"Jessica Jackley: Poverty, money -- and love"

"Heribert Watzke: The brain in your gut"

 

Ockham's Razor

"An innovator for the ages"

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
