  1. A Mooving Podcast About Sustainable Farming

    Last week we spent some time at Ovoka Farm in Paris, Virginia, learning a few things about what it takes to run a working livestock farm.

    And come to find out, it ain’t easy.

    However, Cindy had an amazing time learning about raising livestock from her sister, Karen (a former high-powered attorney from Chicago), and came away energized by the whole experience with a desire to 10X her life raising livestock and working the land in a sustainable way.

  2. Jonathan Rauch Reminds Us Why Free Speech is the Only Safe Space for Minorities

    Jonathan Rauch is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. and the author of six books and many articles on public policy, culture, and government. He visited the American University School of Public Affairs in November 2017 to talk about the freedom of speech for the school’s Political Theory Institute.

    Rauch is a contributing editor of The Atlantic and recipient of the 2005 National Magazine Award, the magazine industry’s equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize. He has for many years been an outspoken defender of freedom of speech.

  3. Episode 1: Introduction | The History of English Podcast


    My hobby is DNA research an in particular am running a project covering a new branch of DNA that we current call ‘South Baltic’.

    It is a brother branch separate from the R-U106 (often called the Germanic line) and R-P312 (mostly associated with Celtic peoples). We are R-S1194.

    The emergence of the Steppe herders from the region above the Black sea opened a new understanding for us and we have been looking at the ways the Yamnya pastoralists would have reached the region where the Unetice Culture emerged (Bohemia or Czech Republic).

    Your podcasts offer a fascinating way of looking at the movement of these people and them blending with others along their Journey into Western Europe.

    The one aspect of this whole story exemplified in the split and apparent homelands of the Celts & Germanics is the issue of did this westward migration involve two groups of the same people – one moving up south of the Carpathians & along the Danube to perhaps found the R-P312 branch of R1b, and a separate group

    moving towards Bohemia through the Ukraine and or Russia then Poland and later on to the Scandinavian & Nth German regions.

    The challenge I have been looking at is ‘was there a dual migration of Yamnaya/Kurgan people two groups going both Nth & Sth of the Carpathians’, or, was there only one migration nth of the Carpathians plus a later back migration down south of the Carpathians.

    The reason the dual-migration path has challenges is that the immediate parent SNP for all the branches of R1b (particularly R-U106, R-P312 & R-S1194) is R-L11 and that SNP (even in ancient DNA burials now being analysed) can’t be found other

    that around Bohemia. It appears to have emerged either in Ukraine or Poland or Bohemia itself. Thus implying their could only be one migration route either via the nth or the sth route around the Carpathians.

    Your podcasts make a very strong case for a dual migration path from the Steppes, with proto-Germanic evolving Nth of the Carpathians and proto-Celtic evolving via a Sth of the Carpathians migration.

    However, this leads to the issue of the missing common R-L11 SNP from below the Carpathians.

    So was it possible that the Sth Carpathian route reflects a migration of the culture and language for the ‘Celtic’ branch of PIE, rather than the actual people. (i.e. did the language migrate itself, if it turns out that R-L11 people did not do that Sth migration ?

    Again, your podcasts offer an intriguing explanation for how the Celtic and Germanic languages might have reached Hallstatt (Celtic) & Bohemia (both)

    differently, and, why the daughter languages are so different.

    I recommend to all my project members to try to listen to as many of your podcasts as they are able. The work is excellent and commendable.

  6. Episode 030: How to Take Smart Notes with Sönke Ahrens - Blokeology | Podcast on Spotify

    Listen to this episode from Blokeology on Spotify.

    Episode Notes Sönke Ahrens has written a book How to Take Smart Notes that could completely revolutionise how you go about this deceptively simple task. This episode digs into a slightly different area of lifestyle - reading, writing, and thinking. It doesn’t matter if you are an academic, a student, a non-fiction writer or just someone who wants to understand anything at a deeper level then you’ll get a lot from this episode.  It builds on the ‘slip box’ technique (Zettelkasten) used by a professor of sociology, Niklas Luhmann, in the late 20th century. It’s well know to academics in Germany and in the sociology field, amongst others, but has made little impact beyond those borders. Sönke’s book is a detailed explanation of the technique but also builds on the evidence in areas such as education, multi-tasking, ego depletion and willpower, and problems such as confirmation bias. It’s a complete system that can allow anyone to build their own ‘second brain’ in a Zettelkasten to think more deeply and be more productive. What’s not to like about that? Links Take Smart Notes website - find Sönke here Amazon: How to Take Smart Notes by Sönke Ahrens - find The Archive software there. I also mentioned nvALT and Brett Terpstra. If you are looking for a simple and effective notekeeping software then you should check it out - it was used to form the backbone of The Archive software that I am using for my own Zettelkasten.
