  1. 1957-1958: Little Rock through Children of Thalidomide (WDSTF Series, TSB056)

    If you’re hearing this episode around the time it comes out, it means I’m taking some time off after the birth of my son. I’ve recorded these ahead of time and most likely will not be available on social media for the next few weeks, but you’ll still get The Story Behind twice a week if you’re subscribed to the podcast. Consider this series to be like a substitute teacher. We won’t go as in-depth as in previous episodes, but we’ll briefly touch of a number of different topics in each episode. This series focuses on Billy Joel’s song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” and the headline-making events and people he mentions. Some content may not be suitable for all listeners. I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind We Didn’t Start The Fire: 1957-1958. In this episode:

    Little Rock Pasternak Mickey Mantle Kerouac Sputnik Zhou Enlai Bridge On The River Kwai Lebanon Charles de Gaulle California baseball Starkweather Homicide Children of Thalidomide

    In this episode we have Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West, two professors at the University of Washington, who talk about a fantastic new course they have designed called “Calling Bullshit“. The course aims to teach students what bullshit is, how to spot it, and how to deal with it. Needless to say, it’s timely. It’s also gotten a lot of attention lately.

    Of course there are plenty of bullshit examples in data analysis and visualization. Carl and Jevin discuss many of them in their course.

    On the show we talk about how they developed the course, what bullshit actually is and what distinguishes it from other types of misinformation, how to recognize examples of bullshit, and how to ‘call bullshit’ in an ethical way.

    Enjoy this “bullshitty” episode! 🙂

    Dara O’Briain - "Live At The Theater Royal" (Dara O’ Briain Live 2006 Stand Up Full)

    Sound is loud so either turn down YouTube volume or System volume

    Irish comic/presenter captured live at the Theatre Royal in London. Dara O’Briain is the Irish comic seemingly omnipresent on the panel show circuit including ‘Mock The Week’ and the chaotic improv rodeo ‘Whose Line is it Anyway’. The acerbic wit and massive intelligence he’s known for there are on full display in his stand up show.

  7. Können Bekleidungsvorschriften neutral sein?

    Arbeitgeber dürfen Musliminnen untersagen, Kopftücher am Arbeitsplatz zu tragen - aus Neutralitätsgründen. Aber wie neutral ist dieses Gebot, wenn es Minderheiten gibt, die um die Anerkennung ihres Lebensstils ständig kämpfen müssen? Der Journalist Fabian Köhler über die Arroganz der Mehrheitsgesellschaft.

  8. Adam Curry – The PodFather | Podcast Legends

    This guest needs almost no introduction. Without him and Dave Winer, the podcasting space as we know it would not exist. An idea turned into a vision that led to an action that has changed the way millions of people consume media today.

    This is Adam’s story, as no one else can tell it. He is co-host of the Best Podcast in the Universe, No Agenda, and co-founder of the new startup, Small Batch Audio, with an upcoming Kickstarter that I am hopeful the podcasting community will get behind.

    As a heads up – there will be some terms used on in the show today that may seem out of context or confusing if you’ve never listened to No Agenda. Enjoy the podcast!

    Q. "I’m trying to think of a way so that this will have anything to do with what we’ve talked about before. Imagine you’re a hyper-educated avant-gardist in grad school learning to write. Okay. The screen gets all fuzzy now as the viewer is invited to imagine this. Uhm. Coming out of an avant-garde tradition, I get to this grad school and the grad school, turns out all the teachers are realists. They’re not at all interested in post-, post-modern avant-garde stuff. Now there’s an interesting delusion going on here. They, so they don’t like my stuff. I believe that it’s not because my stuff isn’t good, but because they just don’t happen to like this kind of aesthetic. In fact, known to them but unknown to me, the stuff was bad. It was indeed bad. So in the middle of all this, hating the teachers but hating them for exactly the wrong reason, uh — this was spring of 1986, I remember, I remember who I went to see the movie with — "Blue Velvet" comes out. Uhm. "Blue Velvet" comes out. "Blue Velvet" is, uhm a type of surrealism. It may have some it may have debts: there’s a deb…
