  8. Chicago Humanities Festival 2014: Stephin Merritt

    We need more than two letters to define the fabulous and multi-faceted career of Stephin Merritt. Best known as the voice and songwriting talent behind The Magnetic Fields, Merritt has just penned "101 Two-Letter Words," a collection of poems for each of the 101 two-character phrases permissible in Scrabble. The book, illustrated with cartoons by the incomparable Roz Chast, is a witty resource for language aficionados and Words with Friends addicts everywhere. Along with "Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!" host Peter Sagal, Merritt joins us for an evening of wordy wonders—and maybe the largest-ever Scrabble game.

    This program was recorded on November 7, 2014 as part of the 25th Anniversary Chicago Humanities Festival, Journeys: http://chf.to/2014Journeys

  10. Wellcome Collection podcast: Magic Manuscripts

    Magic was viewed as dangerous, irresponsible and heretical by people in the Late Middle Ages, yet some medieval people were nevertheless compelled – by curiosity, desire and need – to experiment with it. Dr Sophie Page explores what magic was, why it attracted both fascination and repulsion, and what its practice tells us about the attitudes of medieval people to their universe and the invisible and sacred forces inhabiting it.

    The mystery object unveiled during the event was ‘Miscellanea Alchemica XII’, a late-15th-century manuscript in Dutch and Latin; it is one of only three surviving manuscripts that include demonic magic. It also includes cautious notes by later readers who didn’t approve of some items in the text.
