  1. HW 5.1: The Giant Pool of Money

    "The Giant Pool of Money" by Alex Blumberg and Adam Davidson for This American Life

    The first good breakdown of how the 2008 financial crisis actually happened. This is the story of complicated economic systems, but told through characters, examining the motivations and feelings of people at each step of the process. This approach makes the system concrete, relatable, and engaging as a narrative in a way that an abstract description of the flow of money can’t do.

  2. 2MTL 316: What IS “Doctor Who Canon” Anyway??? (Time Dilation) | Two-minute Time Lord

    What does "Doctor Who canon" have in common with religious canon? How does one determine which stories "matter," and does a 50-year-old television series develop a canon in the same way that a 2,000 year-old (give or take) religion did? Rabid Doctor Who fan and New Testament historian Mark Goodacre is the perfect guest for this Time Dilation conversation. No proselytization, just Doctor Who geekery at its finest, placed in a historical context.
