  1. BBC - Podcasts - Four Thought: Russell M. Davies 21 Sept 2011

    Four Thought talks include stories and ideas which will affect our future, in politics, society, the economy, business, science, technology or the arts. Recorded live, the talks are given by a range of people with a new thought to share.

    After the internet and social media, what will be the next technological revolution? Writer, blogger and social entrepreneur Russell M. Davies argues that like the early days of blogging, we are about to witness another flowering of individual creativity. This time, he says, it will unleash "all sorts of interesting gadgety things", and determine our relationships with them. "It’s about making your own stuff, which might be a bit silly and a bit trivial and pointless, but you get the satisfaction of making it yourself," he says. This revolution in individual gadgetry - and designing our relationship with them - will prove "exciting, radical, life-affirming stuff". Four Thought is a series of talks which combine thought provoking ideas and engaging storytelling. Recorded in front of an audience at the RSA in London, speakers take to the stage to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society.

  6. Jon Ronson On… Worst Internet Date

    Journalist Jon Ronson investigates the extraordinary story of Mary Turner Thompson, who experienced the worst internet date ever which lasted seven years and was to cause the total devastation of her life.

    Edinburgh-based Mary met and married a man who told her he was a CIA agent. Jon visits her in Scotland and hears the incredible twisting and turning love story of Will and Mary. Will carried a gun and had to dash off to Israel at a moment’s notice; Mary was left holding the baby, never knowing when he would come back, and was unable to contact him. She even feared a terrorist attack on her home. But the most bizarre twist was still to come.

  7. Bitcoin - Planet Money

    Bitcoin is a new kind of currency. But unlike, say, the dollar or the yen, it’s not backed by any government. Also, you can’t hold it in your hand or put it in your pocket; it exists only on computers.

    Bitcoin is supposed to be cash for the Internet age — anonymous money that anyone can use without using a credit card or going through a bank.

    On today’s Planet Money, try to get our hands on a few bitcoins, which turns out to be harder than it sounds.

    We dig into some basic questions that come up when you’re creating a new currency from scratch.

    And we buy lunch.

  10. Egypt’s Military, Inc.

    So far, the Egyptian military has largely sided with the protesters in the streets of Cairo.

    This is not only because the military supports the people; it’s also because the military sells the people lots of stuff.

    On today’s Planet Money, we look at the Egyptian military’s deep business ties to everything from dishwashers to resort hotels. And we consider how those ties influence how the military responds to the crisis.
