  3. The Importance of Tangerines: Cooking the Books with Yoon Ha Lee – FRAN WILDE

    This is the podcast in which we try not to fangirl. (That’s all of the podcasts, actually.) We failed. (Ok I failed, Aliette asked excellent questions from her berth as an instructor on the Writing Excuses cruise and I just … well, you’ll see.)

    Yoon Ha Lee’s first collection, Conservation of Shadows, and his short stories at Tor.com, Lightspeed, Beneath Ceaseless Skies and more, have been favorites for a long time. When Ninefox Gambit came out last year, I was hooked, and Raven Strategem has come through even stronger.

    On the heels of his second Hexarchate novel, Yoon stopped by to discuss tangerines, researching the history of kimchi, and the complexities of characters including Jedao. It’s all for Cooking the Books this month, both here and at the extension kitchen over at The Booksmugglers! (check out Yoon’s Booksmugglers Bonus answers!).

  4. Science(ish): Arrival

    The boys start the new series with a bang. And a new format. One question, one scientist, plenty of relatively well-informed chat. To kick off, Rick and Michael go extra-terrestrial with 2016’s linguistic thriller ‘Arrival’. We’re talking a hundred words for snow, we’re talking babies on an island, and we’re talking (not so) Universal Grammar.

    Featuring: Dr Jessica Coon

  5. Science Movie Club: ‘Arrival’

    The 2016 movie ‘Arrival,’ an adaptation of Ted Chiang’s novella ‘Story of Your Life,’ captured the imaginations of science fiction fans worldwide. Field linguist Jessica Coon, who consulted on the film, breaks down what the movie gets right — and wrong — about linguistics.

  6. BBC Radio 4 - In Our Time, Language and the Mind

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the history of our ideas about the formation of language. The psychologist George Miller worked out that in English there are potentially a hundred million trillion sentences of twenty words in length - that’s a hundred times the number of seconds since the birth of the universe. “Language”, as Chomsky put it, “makes infinite use of finite media”. “Language”, as Steven Pinker puts it, “comes so naturally to us that it’s easy to forget what a strange and miraculous gift it is”. “All over the world”, he writes, “members of our species spend a good part of their lives fashioning their breath into hisses and hums and squeaks and pops and are listening to others do the same”. Jean Jacques Rousseau once said that we differ from the animal kingdom in two main ways - the use of language and the prohibition of incest. Language and our ability to learn it has been held up traditionally as our species’ most remarkable achievement, marking us apart from the animals. But in the 20th century, our ideas about how language is formed are being radically challenged and altered. With Dr Jonathan Miller, medical doctor, performer, broadcaster, author and film and opera director; Steven Pinker, cognitive scientist, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Centre for Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, California.

  9. Rita Farrell Interview (Uilleann pipes, flute)

    So much in here: piping as meditation and not setting fire to the old Ganley flute. Starting on the whistle but falling for the pipes despite the danger. The eternal conversation: reeds, drones and regulators. The session spaces of Belfast, open piping closed piping, Tommy Reck and saying ‘I Love You’ to Liam O’Flynn. Being a girl and running an all female session. A room tuned to G Minor, the Drogheda connection, the five string banjo and ‘Lovely Leitrim.’ Oh. And Robbie Williams and Graham Norton too. Bish Bash Bosh. What a treat.
