    This portrait is one of my absolutely favorites. It’s also great for teaching students about how portraits work and how they convey messages about the sitter. I’ve heard quite a few interviews with Sherald and I do think that there are others where she explains her choice of gray skin a bit more cle...Show More

    I actually really enjoyed this episode. I had heard about this kind of thing happening and it was interesting to hear the story of someone who had experienced it first hand. It was a little strange listening to it as I am vegan now but I just listened to it in the mindset of when I used to eat meat....Show More

    The story of a white woman in the 1960s who engaged in stunt journalism, transforming her appearance so she could pass as a woman of color (a black woman, a Navajo woman, an undocumented Mexican woman) to write books about the experience. It seems like these books tell us a lot more about what it wa...Show More

    A beautiful episode that reflects how deeply we are interconnected as humans even when we don’t know each other. The words, the emotions, the reflection - it will move you like nothing else would.

    A beautiful episode about a woman, named Joy, who can see (or smell) the future of her husband and of Alison who changed her own future. #wordsarespells Alison’s life advice reminded me of a quote in a Bhagwat Gita (Hindu scripture): “You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are n...Show More

    This amazing mini-series continues with an episode that is an excellent illustration of how impossible it is to investigate whether or not people participated in terrorist groups overseas. When talking about how Latif worked on Osama bin Laden’a farm in Sudan, with every new piece of information abo...Show More

    One of two podcasts I heard today exploring the colonial roots and cultural cross-fertilization of a food product. A couple of points. First, is that by pure coincidence last night I attended a seminar for my work where I heard a panel of lawyers on the topic of Environmental and Social Governance ...Show More

    Loved this episode. Really shed some light onto the situation in Guantanamo Bay and how innocent people could potentially be behind bars under Trump’s government. Or are they innocent? Can’t wait for the next episode.

    What a master piece. The first episode from this season dedicated to the seven sins is an amazing essay of or world, of our polarization. I was driving while listening to it, otherwise I would stand up and clap my hands until they bleed. Don´t missed it.

    Pausing and taking a breath could prevent murders? Interesting listen on how many murders are committed by impulse in the heat of the moment and how training youth to stop and take a breath could decrease murder rates.

    The international banking system traces back to the Crusades. The Knights Templar came up with a system of letters that would let Crusaders travel thousands of miles and access money without carrying sacks of gold. Listening to this one back-to-back with the episode on M-PESA, what is truly fascina...Show More

    Every episode of this show is great, but “Moon Court” is SO great. The student debate intro is perfect, guests (as always) are well chosen, and it builds to a generous, well-argued conclusion that has stayed with me.

    Fascinating episode about how a psychiatrist who cares for the homeless in NYC does her job. You can tell she loves and is very good at what she does. It's heartbreaking when she says that she's afraid to let go of some of her patients because she doesn't want to let them off in the deep end of the ...Show More

    I fancy myself a big gifter - yet I don’t believe in consumerism. Contradicting, I know.
