Weezer’s 10th album, the self-titled “White” album, came out April 1, 2016. In this episode, Rivers Cuomo breaks down the meticulous process of making the song “Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori,” through the different demo versions that the track went through, and the array of spreadsheets that he uses collect, analyze, and harvest his ideas.
Let’s face it. Paper maps are a bit out of fashion now that we have smartphones. But old world maps and atlases are chock-full of history, of once-uncharted territories — and if you zoom close, "sea monsters."
TED Talks have been around longer than you think. They became really popular once YouTube came along to bring their often inspirational messages to the world, 18 minutes at a time. In this episode, we interview an actual TED talker, the host of the 99% Invisible podcast, Roman Mars.
In this episode of the O’Reilly Data Show, I spoke with one of the most popular speakers at Strata+Hadoop World: Joe Hellerstein, professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley and co-founder/CSO of Trifacta. We talked about his past and current academic research (which spans HCI, databases, and systems), data wrangling, large-scale distributed systems, and his recent work on metadata services.
How do we learn to eat? It may seem like an obvious question, but it’s actually quite a complicated process. Who decided that mushed-up vegetables were the perfect first food—and has that always been the case? What makes us like some foods and hate others—and can we change? Join us to discover the back story behind the invention of baby food, as well as the latest science on flavor preferences and tips for how to transform dislikes into likes.
As parents know, mealtimes with toddlers can often be a war zone. Meanwhile, the diet of many American adults resembles a kiddie menu—fries, pizza, chicken tenders, and burgers. In this episode, we’re joined by NYU food historian Amy Bentley, whose new book tells the surprising story of how the development of canning, the discovery of vitamins, and the medicalization of motherhood came together to create an entirely new product: commercial baby food. It caught on quickly—but how did being raised on sweet, salty, smooth gloop end up affecting a generation of eaters? Meanwhile, British food writer Bee Wilson shares a wealth of surprising research into how we develop food likes and dislikes, busting pervasive myths and questioning conventional wisdom in the process. Finally, we reveal the magical technique that can help expand the palates of toddlers and adults alike. (It really works!)
There’s plenty for parents, kids, and all the rest of us in this new episode, including the science of flavor imprinting, the age of social indifference, and the unexpected connection between the Cold War and the Gerber baby. Listen now!

About this presentation
In this wide-ranging talk, ethnographer and leadership expert Simon Sinek discusses the importance of trust, authenticity, and meaning. Sinek argues that as individuals and companies, everything that we say and do is a symbol of who we are. And it is only when we communicate our beliefs authentically that we can attract others to our cause, and form the bonds that will empower us to achieve truly great things.
