Haha. That's pretty cool!

I've listened to the Moth podcasts in the past, but since I moved into the city, I don't have a very long commute so I don't have time to listen anymore. Someday I'll get to one of the slams. There are so many things to do in the city, but I'm left studying and working or vegging out if I have nothing on my plate. I can't wait to be at a point where I live in the city and can go out every night if I want! Years away.

Just saw this thread and I love Radiolab, Stuff You Should Know, NPR, This American Life, all of it. Unfortunately, I have such a short commute to work and don't have much time to listen to the radio or podcasts, so my podcast listening is saved for road trips. I've had quite a few road trips where I listen to 8-10 straight hours of podcasts.

Yea, my commute is about ten minutes now. I used to have an hour a day commute total so I could listen to a podcast or two. I've had to cut back on a couple. First thing I do when I get home is fire one up and listen to it while I do some of my routine stuff at home. Podcasts really help with those long road trips too. You are listening to something you enjoy with no commercial breaks. Podcasts are going to finish off radio one day.

The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe has made me obsessed with science.
Dan Carling's Hardcore History has made me obsessed with history.
The Complete Guide to Everything has made me obsessed with drinking beer and rambling.

I could go on.

Its pretty awesome that Jack now has his own Audio Documentary Series running with NPR... the press coverage has been a bit of a whirlwind smattering ever since the official White Stripes demise occurred

I like what the guy at Consequences of Sound had to say the most out of all the stuff i have read...

After The White Stripes decided to call it a day, Jack White later went on to say he wouldn’t be joining any new bands. But while most of us are getting caught up in the drama of life post-White Stripes, Mr. White himself is just doing what he does best: working on the most random projects imaginable. So, to better understand the man behind Third Man Records and three wildly popular rock bands, NPR is beginning a weekly series of interviews with White called The Flipside.

With the series, the public broadcasting giant hopes to highlight a few things that fans may not have been aware of in regards to their savior. In this week’s edition, along with the mention that he’d be restarting his Third Man Upholstery business he ran before he was famous, the charismatic frontman talked a whole lot about his recent 45 with auctioneer Jerry King. Head here to listen to the interview and to check out a transcript. reporting by chris coplan


For now it seems that NPR is keeping their own little file on Jack and you can visit it here: http://www.npr.org/a...9122/jack-white

If you wanna follow the Flipside Series with Jack on All Songs Considered then head over to their blog

congrats jack... we always knew you had it in you to share more than your own gifted nature

Maybe what i love about the audio documentary is that it serves as the ultimate archival tool for creative inspiration... Check out this set of audio documents which explore a very prolific drum break in modern music



apparently it is used in Hip Hop as well as Polka... who knew???

Here is the actual documentary which explains this sample

this looks really really good: http://www.sciencefr...hives/201104085

Connecting Science and Art
Science and art often seem to develop in separate silos, but many thinkers are inspired by both. Novelist Cormac McCarthy, filmmaker Werner Herzog, and physicist Lawrence Krauss discuss science as inspiration for art and Herzog’s new film on the earliest known cave paintings.

that was a great listen... couldnt help but think of the people who died during the civil war when they talked about the dead at the fortress... it really is a civil war that Afghanistan is experiencing but the nature of that civil war is based purely out of access to resources and the education to apply the resources such as in water management or modern social custom such as birth control

the violence towards women in that culture truly extends from old customs which are bound to the harsh landscape there which has built up the value of religious morals for social acceptance as thought it were a 'fortress of spirit' which must be maintained... these people really are prisoners of zion who would benefit by the power of ethics ruling them as opposed to blind morals

the tricky part of fundamentalist religion is that it dovetails so nicely with corporate values of market management and impulsive choices that deaden commercial investment as well as objectify the diversity models of lifestyle exploration as commodity developers ... a magazine like Ready-Made or Mother Jones could have field days doing Afghanistani-centric issues if it werent an issue of getting shot while trying to develop lo-fi options and grassroots markets that met peoples needs again

my point here... there are too many guns in a nation of need
