  1. How The Beatles Made ‘The White Album’

    Fifty years ago, just before the holidays in 1968, The Beatles put out not just a new album, but a double album, something relatively unheard of at the time. The album art was a stark, white, glossy cover with raised, slanted lettering that simply said, "The Beatles." That self-titled album, with its 30 songs that span genres from American country music to avant-garde tape collage, has come to be known as "The White Album." And in celebration of its birth 50 years ago, The Beatles label Apple Records has scoured the archives for a new deluxe edition of the album that, for the first time, includes previously unreleased, early demo recordings, studio outtakes and stunning remixes in both stereo and 5.1 surround.

    Today we’ve got a conversation with the man who produced this 100-plus song celebration, Giles Martin, whose father, George Martin, produced "The White Album" back in ‘68 (along with most everything else The Beatles ever made). In this interview with Giles Martin, you’ll hear some of the early demos, outtakes and remixes. But he begins by describing the process of making of the "The White Album," how it turned out to be a much-less planned and much more organic process than ever, and how that frustrated George Martin.

  3. Money For Nothing | Flash Forward

    What if we just gave everybody money? It sounds simple, but universal basic income is a trendy idea again and a lot of you have asked for an episode about a future where everybody gets money from the government no matter what. And it turns out that while it sounds simple, just giving everybody money is way more complicated than you might thing.

  4. Episode 5: Is Good Design Good for You?

    Our fifth episode of the “Wireframe” digs into the intersection of design and ethical practice. In it we trace the origins of Facebook’s famous Like button back in time to a frenzied hackathon in the last decade when it was conceived as a way of easily spreading positivity all over the Internet. We then look at the massive, unintended consequences of that tiny but momentous bit of UI, and how it demonstrates a model for creating products you love so much you can’t put down, for better or worse. This was one of my favorite episodes because it endeavors to ask questions every designer should be thinking about in his or her work.

  6. 53: How to Design Non-Sh**t Conferences with Andy Budd

    Jonathan interviews Andy Budd, co-founder of Clearleft and the man behind popular design conferences like UX London and Leading Design. Jonathan asks lots of questions and but doesn’t even get close to asking everything he wants to ask. Some of the topics Jonathan and Andy touch on:

    How Andy is pathological! It’s true! 👻

    What are conferences for? Spoiler: it’s not education! 🤔

    How to connect with people at conferences? 🤚🏻

    How does Andy balance watching over 500 conference talks a year with running Clearleft? 🤯

    Managing cashflow when running an agency. 🤑

    How to agency? 🧐

    Lastly they talk about selling out, because, spoiler, Jonathan is thinking of SELLING OFF AJ&SMART! WHAAAT! Yeah, no, just kidding. 😌

  7. Oh For Cute - 8 October 2018

    A stereotype is a preconceived notion about a person or group. Originally, though, the word stereotype referring to a printing device used to produce lots of identical copies. If you suspect there’s a connection, you’re right!  Also, the link between tiny mythical creatures called trolls and modern-day mischief-makers, plus the stories behind the color names we give to horses. Finally, wise advice about fending off despair: learn something new. Also, grinslies, personal summers, cowboy slang, smell vs. odor, orient vs. orientate, trolls and trolling, and just for fun, some agentive and instrumental exocentric verb-noun compounds.

  8. The mystery of time - Big Ideas - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    More or less everything you know about time is wrong. This is no single time, but every one of you lives within your own time. Time passes at a different speed for each one of you. There is even no ‘now’ that you share with the person next to you. And the past only exists in your mind created by your memories.

  9. Steven Pinker promotes enlightenment values - Big Ideas - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    The idea of progress has animated social reformers since the western enlightenment. With reason, science and individual rights at its core, this philosophy has transformed the western world over the last two hundred years. Harvard Professor Steven Pinker says these ideas are under threat and need to be defended.

  10. Where did language come from? - Big Ideas - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Human evolution is a million-year story.  Yet language only appeared in the last 100,000 years. Psychologist Michael Corballis believes that language evolution is far older and more complex. He describes the connections between language and thinking and argues that we underestimate the cognitive ability of other animals.
