Episode 29 – How To Hack The Radio (Physics and Early History of Radio I)

Listen, podcasting is not an exact science, and this is not exactly Science’s episode. Editing is good, fam, just remember that.

Rissa hates moist innards. Science promises no death this time. Clio nearly poisons herself with tea.

How to Make a Radio

“Voting Day” by Son of Laughter

Taking a Week Off…

For a few reasons, but most prominent among them is that Science didn’t have time to finish her colloquium. We’ll be back next Wednesday with a new episode about…radio! It’s like podcasts in the air! See you then!

Episode 28 – Why Is It Always Mustafa? (History of Turkey VII)

You know that old Johnny Cash standard? It goes like, “Times’re rough for a King named Sue/ When you die on crusade and there’s nothin’ to do/ When your kid’s a nerd and your empire falls and–” No? Is that just me? That’s just me.

Science is proud to be an American. Clio thought you said puppies. Rissa doesn’t know…how to color. She just can’t do it.

Episode 27 – The IKEA of Insects (Bees and Beekeeping ft. Adam Brandt)

Adam Brandt wants to change the way you think about bees. Sure, they’re insects, but they’re also mathematicians, bureaucrats, clones, fans of Game of Thrones, and fiercely loyal to their moms. Unless their moms aren’t fulfilling their roles as Queens, of course. Fair’s fair.

Rissa watches Magic School Bus. Clio brings on the folklore. Science is your mom now. Adam’s bees are…strong!

Just a heads-up!

Hey everyone, just so you’re aware, we’re talking a week off from the pod to catch up on…everything? Pretty much everything? We’ll be back with an episode on May 16th.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Hello friends, it’s Clio here. I wanted to share with you a story from last year that I recently discovered. It’s the story of David Boder, a psychologist who interviewed holocaust survivors in France. Recordings from his interviews were restored and scholars have been able to hear the songs his interviewees sung. The article in the link includes the audio of two of those recordings. 

Boder was originally from Latvia and so I’ve included some pictures from my own visit to Latvia. These were taken in the Jewish ghetto in Riga, a holding center for deported Jews from as far away as Berlin, Germany. The wall panels are covered in the names of people who were imprisoned there. 

Today we remember them.
