by Stuff You Should Know

America’s Unknown Celebrity Chef
Brilliant black chef wrote pioneering cookbook on New Orleans Creole cuisine in 1939 and likely the first TV cooking show to headline an African American woman in 1949. She became a cooking celebrity with a best selling cookbook and recruited by the Rockefellers. And at the opposite end of the spectrum . . . When she attended the Fannie Farmer cooking school in Boston in 1918, she was required to obtain the written permission of every single white woman in the class, and she had to eat lunch at her own table. No recordings of her show or her voice exist. The Smithsonian’s food history curator put 10 years into tracing her history from the personal oral history of New Orleans people who still remember her and her show.

Wired For Altruism
by TED Radio Hour
Terrific episode looking at all the dimensions of altruism. Are some people just genetically more altruistic than others? What does it mean to be perform "effective altruism"? Guy also asked some challenging questions to the TED speakers that made the interviews even more interesting.
The Ski Troops of WWII
by Radio Diaries
Hearing the stories of the ski troops of WWII will give you a sense of how excited and young, but determined and willing the men were. Will give you a renewed admiration on how they gave their lives just to secure a wall so that they can end Fascism and Nazism. So cool they became the innovators in snow sports afterwards like starting Vale!!!
The Third. A TED Talk.
This was really informative and inspirational.
