  1. The Knowledge: How to Rebuild our World from Scratch by Lewis Dartnell

    Maybe an asteroid hit Earth. Perhaps a nuclear war reduced our cities to radioactive rubble. Or avian flu killed most of the population. Whatever the cause, the world as we know it has ended and now the survivors must start again. But how do we set about rebuilding our world from scratch?

    Once you’ve salvaged what you can from the debris, how do you grow food and make clothes? How do you generate energy and develop medicines? And once you’ve mastered the essentials, how do you smelt metals, make gunpowder, or build a primitive radio set?

    The Knowledge is a guidebook for survivors. We have become disconnected not only from the beautiful fundamentals of science and technology but even from the basic skills and knowledge on which our lives and our world depend.

    The Knowledge is a journey of discovery, a book which explains everything you need to know about everything. Here is the blueprint for rebooting civilisation.

    It will transform your understanding of the world – and help you prepare for when it’s no longer here.

  2. Jonathan Coulton’s cover of a cover gets covered

    A few weeks ago, singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton was surprised to learn that his arrangement of the Sir Mix-A-Lot song "Baby Got Back" was covered note for note by the cast of the Fox TV show Glee. Coulton talks with Bob about having his melody stolen with impunity and the legal gray area between copyright law and cover songs.

  3. Interview: Alan Light, Author of ‘The Holy or the Broken’ : NPR

    There are songs, and then there are anthems. Leonard Cohen’s "Hallelujah" is a popular power anthem now, but almost never saw light of day. In his new book, music journalist Alan Light charts the unlikely rise of the song through countless weddings, funerals and in film and television.

  8. Bloodbuzz Ohio

    It’s scrappy and I make a few mistakes but I really like this song that I’ve just learned. It was one of the singles from High Violet by The National, my favourite album of last year.
