  4. Podcast: Wer IAA sagt, muss auch ITB sagen - Ein Requiem für die Messe | hr2.de | Der Tag

    "Frankfurt ist uns keine Messe wert", hat der Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) nun entschieden. Die Internationale Automobilausstellung (IAA) wird also künftig anderswo stattfinden. Und auch sonst wird sich an dieser Messe einiges ändern. Was wohlgemerkt auch in Frankfurt der Fall gewesen wäre. Denn alle Bewerberstädte sind sich, mehr noch als der VDA selbst, im Klaren darüber, dass die bisherige Autoschau nur als Mobilitätsmesse überleben kann. Messen, auf denen eine Branche nichts anderes tut, als sich zu feiern, haben ausgedient. Und auf einer Messe nur zu zeigen, was man hat, das wird auch niemanden hinter dem Bildschirm hervorlocken. Denn sehen und kaufen kann man auch im Internet. Auch jenseits von IAA und ITB, von CeBIT oder Grüner Woche stellt sich also ganz grundsätzlich die Frage: Was ist eine Messe wert? In welchen Gewändern werden die Messen dieser Welt in Zukunft zelebriert werden? Reicht, es sie zu reformieren? Oder werden sie alle früher oder später die letzte Ölung erhalten?

  5. Ep 26 - Hao Jingfang and Vagabonds with Ken Liu

    "A person from one civilisation looks at their surroundings as distinct objects and events and considers them separately. But when a person from another civilisation looks in as an outsider, they prefer to view everything through the lens of political power and try to explain everything based on that perspective."

    In the twenty sixth episode of The Translated Chinese Fiction Podcast, we are looking at Hao Jingfang’s Vagabonds (流浪玛厄斯 / Liúlàng Mǎèsī)

    Publishers: EN - Simon & Schuster, Head of Zeus CN - New Star Press

  6. Episode 45: The Not-So-Benevolent Billionaire - Bill Gates and Western Media

    Russia, as we all know, has sinister “oligarchs” whereas in the United States, we are told, we have “philanthropists,” “job creators,” and “titans of industry” who earn their wealth through hard work, moxie, and guile. Aside from a few cartoonishly evil billionaires – like the Walton family, Peter Thiel, and the Koch brothers – the average American has a warm and fuzzy feeling about the super wealthy.

    The most notable of these Benevolent Billionaires is Bill Gates, whose foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, operates the largest overseas “nonprofit” regime in the world, worth over 40 billion dollars–– twice that of the next biggest foundation. The Gates Foundation receives almost uniformly softball coverage from the media, many of whom receive funding from Gates through various investment and donor arrangements, both from his personal coffers and the foundation that bears his name.

    In this two-part episode we ask how much this network of patronage effects Western media’s overwhelmingly positive and uncritical coverage of Gates. How can one can be critical of this type of massive outsized influence without devolving into paranoia? What is the nature of the capitalist ideology that informs Gates’ so-called philanthropy…
