  2. A History of the World in Maps - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Throughout history, maps have always been as much about their creators and their worldviews as about reproducing an accurate replica of the world. Early maps were also about the unknown and how to display the borders of the known world. Monsters in illustration were often used to represent what lay beyond the edge of the world, and cartographers competed to create the best and scariest monsters on their creations.

    Professor and BBC documentary presenter Jeremy Brotton has produced a study of the cultural values embodied in maps and collected them in a book called A History of the World in Twelve Maps.

  3. The Big Ideas podcast: The medium is the message

    In the first of a series of philosophy podcasts, Benjamen Walker and guests discuss the communication theorist Marshall McLuhan and his most famous line.

    The writing of the Canadian philosopher Marshall McLuhan, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this Thursday, has entered popular jargon like that of few other modern intellectuals. Is there another line that has been quoted – and misquoted – as enthusiastically as ‘the medium is the message’? McLuhan, of course, was perfectly aware of his status as the thinker du jour of the media age, the man everyone liked to quote over dinner but hadn’t bothered to read – for proof, just watch Annie Hall.

    But what does "the medium is the message" really mean? In the first episode of our new The Big Ideas series, Benjamen Walker gets to the bottom of the slogan with the help of Canadian novelist and McLuhan-biographer Douglas Coupland, academic Lance Strate, Marshal’s son Eric McLuhan, record producer John Simon, and the Guardian’s media correspondent Jemima Kiss.

    Our Second Halloween offering is a classic monster story by science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon, entitled ‘IT’. An allegorical fantasy about a man-like plant creature who grew out of a swamp and begins roaming the countryside destroying anything or anyone it comes across. Most threaten is the Drew family living in a nearby farm. Unaware of the danger, the Drew’s nine year old daughter, Babe, sneaks out of the house to meet up with her uncle in their secret hiding place in the woods. But her uncle has already by killed and torn apart by the brute strength of the mute, and uncaring mold with a mind.

    First appearing in the August 1940 issue of Unknown magazine this story was to influence many other ‘swamp-things’ in fiction, comics, movies and television. At the time it was a comment on the unthinking and uncaring evil of the fascists who had started the war in Europe.

    Featured in our 3D Radio Production are Woody Creek, Orange Julius, Mrs White, Ubu Orange, and Shrieking Violet as Babe. Fortunato reads the narration. With music adapted from the soundtracks for the TV shows ‘Twin Peaks’, & ‘the X-Files’ as well as the work of Bernard Herrman for the Brian Depalma motion picture ‘Sisters’.

    After surviving a bloody ambush, as result a long running feud between families on the open ranges of West Texas, and with the murderous McQuil clan in hot pursuit, John Reynolds hides out in what is known as a ‘haunted valley’. To say anything more than this, would spoil the enjoyment of this amzing tale by Robert E. Howard.

  10. Cyber Prophet William Gibson

    For all of the Internet era, and even before, novelist William Gibson has been the ultimate science fiction guru of the age. He invented the notion – the word – “cyberspace” before the Web even existed. He took us to dystopic futures that became nows in “Neuromancer,” “Burning Chrome,” and “Virtual Light.”

    Now, when whole lives – or big pieces – have migrated to the Web and beyond, Gibson is beyond as well. He’s watching the culture from new angles. We speak with Gibson about his latest novel, “Zero History,” and where our world – and his – stand now.
