WTTE - 021 - The Invention of Time
Words To That Effect
Time, as we understand it today, was only really invented in the Victorian era. We take it for granted today that our phones and watches and other devices are accurate to the second. That time zones are clear and fixed – when it’s 3pm in Dublin, it’s also 3pm in London, and 4pm in Paris or 10am in New York. We don’t think twice about the fact that a train can be scheduled to leave at precisely 11.04 and, when it arrives, passengers will be clear as what time it is at their destination We know that time travel is a trope of science fiction, but not a scientific reality. We are aware that the sun is a star that’s burning through a finite store of hydrogen and will, eventually, burn out and die. But all of these ideas about time – things we just don’t think very much about today - were not fixed at all in the nineteenth century. It was in the Victorian era, particularly from the middle of the 19th century onward, that time moved to the forefront of public consciousness. The concept of time was pondered over, debated, and discussed by everyone, from factory workers to scientists, tradespeople to academics. Time found its way into novels by the authors of the age – from the renowned and to the long-forgotten It was investigated and interrogated across scientific disciplines: by geographers, geologists, naturalists, and many others And it caused fierce debate among those charged with regulating and organising trade, transport, and communications. All across the world, time was a hugely important facet of life in the Victorian era. For full shownotes, links and more visit wttepodcast.com/time
A Future Without Facebook
Soonish
Every technology has its growing pains, but Facebook, at age 15, has matured into a never-ending disaster. Here at Soonish, I'm fed up, and I'm closing my accounts. In this episode, you’ll hear how I reached this point, and how other Facebook users are coming to grips with the chronic problems at the social network. You might just come away with some ideas about what to do to limit Facebook’s power over your own life! The first signs that something was seriously wrong at Facebook surfaced in—well, when? Was it 2014, when the company acknowledged it had experimented on users by altering the content of the news feed to see how it would affect their moods? Was it 2015, when misinformation about alleged Muslim attacks on Buddhists in Myanmar spread on Facebook, leading to anti-Muslim riots? Was it 2017, when evidence began to emerge that Russian hackers had influenced the US presidential election by promoting divisive content designed to mobilize Trump voters and demotivate Clinton voters in swing states? Was it 2018, when the world learned that Facebook had allowed the British political data firm Cambridge Analytica to acquire Facebook data on 87 million users in the U.S.? Was it last week, when a white-nationalist gunman in New Zealand live-streamed his terror attack on Facebook, and hundreds of thousands of copies of the video ricocheted around the network for hours? No matter when you start the clock, we’ve now had plenty of time to perceive Facebook’s failures in all their depth and breadth. And we’ve been able to pinpoint some of the root causes—including a fundamental disregard for user privacy and a fixation on a business model that surveils users and manipulates the content of the news feed to foment outrage and maximize opportunities for targeted advertising. Some Facebook users, like me, have decided that enough is enough. Many others are staying, but unhappily. Should you keep using Facebook, but more advisedly? Cut way back? Walk away? All of these are valid strategies that will send a message to Facebook and make your own life happier. Doing nothing probably won’t. This episode is designed to help listeners make a more conscious choice.

175. Who Sets the First Number in a Negotiation?
Question of the Day
Is it more important to set an actual price when you're negotiating a deal, or to control the terms on which a price is to be set?

Now, James uses this same technique in his own favor when he's sitting at the negotiating table.

246. Terra Lightfoot on Jackson Browne 'Running on Empty' (1977)
My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan
Canadian singer-songwriter-guitarist Terra Lightfoot joins me to talk about Jackson Browne's classic chronicle of life on the road 'Running on Empty'. We talk about how the album was recorded live across Browne's US tour, the different aspects of touring life reflected across the songs, discuss what is the best song named 'Cocaine Blues', why Browne sued the Republican Party for using the title track and Terra recounts her night-long tequila-fueled jam session with Jackson himself. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it's influenced them. Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer.

Shake Shack's Danny Meyer — When to ignore conventional wisdom
Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman
To revolutionize an industry, you have to cast off received wisdom. Shake Shack’s Danny Meyer knows this well. When he opened his first high-end restaurant, New York’s Union Square Cafe, received wisdom told him food was the star attraction. But Danny knew to focus on how customers FEEL. And it’s this feeling – Danny calls it “enlightened hospitality” — that he’s scaled. From his first innovative restaurants, Union Square Café and Gramercy Tavern, to the dramatic scale story of Shake Shack, Danny cast off received wisdom and wrote his own rules: The staff comes first; investors comes last; the customer isn’t always right; and “service” is not the same as “hospitality.” His simple ideas have radical implications for any industry. With a cameo appearance from Rick Barry (Former NBA player.)

This headset helps you learn faster. But is that fair?
Should This Exist?
Neuroscientist Daniel Chao created a headset that hacks your brain with electricity so you can learn as fast as a kid again. It’s called Halo, and it helps you learn motor skills faster. Athletes use it; musicians too. But we’re not far from a future when Halo could help anyone master anything. Where will that take us? Host Caterina Fake leads the journey, joined by Comedian Baratunde Thurston and Quartz Editor in Chief Kevin Delaney, who help Daniel future-cast, and see his invention through the future best for humanity.
Jose Feliciano’s Anthem Encore
Mismatch
It was 1968. The assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy had already shaken Americans to the core. 300 American soldiers were being killed each week in Vietnam, and protesters were beaten near the Democratic National Convention. In that wrenching year, the nation needed a timeout. The 1968 World Series would provide that break. More than 53,000 fans jammed Tiger Stadium, hoping their team could rally after trailing the Cardinals three games to one. Before the first pitch of game five, they removed their hats and rose from their seats to hear the most memorable and controversial performance of the national anthem in the history of American sports.

Double Jeopardy
Don't Act Your Age podcast
“I’m living on borrowed time.” That’s how a former GI describes his incredible luck in surviving the 1968 Tet Offensive, turning point of the Vietnam War. Fifty years later, he and a buddy relive the bloody attack that found them under siege in a house in Hue. His small unit fought a pitched battle against the Viet Cong until forced out by flames. Dodging heavy enemy fire, the two soldiers ran in opposite directions — split-second decisions that would impact the rest of their lives. Well into retirement years, they remain grateful to have survived a battle that killed so many brothers in arms. We doubt you’ll hear a war story with two such different twists.
341- National Sword
99% Invisible
Where does your recycling go? In most places in the U.S., you throw it in a bin, and then it gets carted off to be sorted and cleaned at a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). From there, much of it is shipped off to mills, where bales of paper, glass, aluminum, and plastic are pulped or melted into raw materials. Some of these mills are here in the U.S. And once upon a time, many of them were in China. Since 2001, China was one of the biggest buyers of American recycling.  That is, until last year, when China pulled a move that no one saw coming: they stopped buying. National Sword

#21 || A survivor and her perpetrator find justice
Reckonings
‘I wanted him to be standing with me, and telling our story with me, in a way that didn't just write us into the categories of angelic survivor and evil assaulter. And I think I even told the audience -- if this person comes forward to tell his story, I hope that you’ll listen to him.’ That’s Anwen, speaking about Sameer. What does it sound like for a survivor to get her needs met? What does it sound like for a perpetrator to take responsibility for his sexual abuse of power? Heartfelt thanks to the Friend Foundation, Varda Rabin, and David Karp at the Campus PRISM Project, which helps universities explore the possibility of applying restorative justice to sexual assault: www.skidmore.edu/campusrj/prism.php

The Punchline
Radiolab
John Scott was the professional hockey player that every fan loved to hate.  A tough guy. A brawler. A goon. But when an impish pundit named Puck Daddy called on fans to vote for Scott to play alongside the world’s greatest players in the NHL All-Star Game, Scott found himself facing off against fans, commentators, and the powers that be.  Was this the realization of Scott’s childhood dreams? Or a nightmarish prank gone too far? Today on Radiolab, a goof on a goon turns into a parable of the agony and the ecstasy of the internet, and democracy in the age of Boaty McBoatface. This episode was reported by Latif Nasser and was produced by Matt Kielty. Special thanks to Larry Lynch and Morgan Springer.

328- Devolutionary Design
99% Invisible
It’s hard to overstate just how important record album art was to music in the days before people downloaded everything. Visuals were a key part of one's experience with a record or tape or CD. The design of the album cover created a first impression of what was to come. Album art was certainly important to reporter Sean Cole, one particular album by one particular band: Devo. This is the story of Devo’s first record and the fight over the arresting image of a flashy, handsome golf legend on the cover. Plus, Katie Mingle gets the backstory of the Langley Schools Music Project LP, a haunting and uplifting outsider artist masterpiece. Devolutionary Design
Food Myths, Kids Flu Shot, Europe Plastics Ban. Dec 21, 2018, Part 1
Science Friday
You’ve probably heard of the five second rule, when you drop a cookie on the floor and take a bite anyway because it’s only been a few seconds. What about when you’re at a party and you see someone double dip a chip in the salsa? How much bacteria does the double dip and the five-second rule spread around? Biologists Paul Dawson and Brian Sheldon investigate these questions their new book, Did You Just Eat That?: Two Scientists Explore Double-Dipping, the Five-Second Rule, and other Food Myths in the Lab. They talk about how bacteria spread around in our everyday lives and what can be done for food safe handling in our homes. What is the right age to get a flu vaccination at a pharmacy? In North Carolina, apparently, it’s 14. The age limit was written into state law a few years ago. Across the country, age limits for pharmacists to give vaccines range from 3 years old in some places to 18 in others. But why? Since the 1990s, states have been changing laws to allow pharmacists to give more and more vaccines to patients at younger ages. In 26 states and Washington D.C., pharmacists can give vaccines to people at any age. The rest have varying limits starting as young as 3-years-old in Arizona and as old as 18 for vaccines in North Carolina—except for the flu shot.  This week, European Union leaders signed a provisional agreement that would ban 10 major single-use plastic products, from plastic straws and cutlery to Q-tips with plastic stems. The agreement would need to be ratified by EU member states, likely in the spring. If approved, the ban would be implemented in 2021. Rachel Feltman, science editor at Popular Science, joins Ira to talk about the proposed ban and what it might mean in the EU and elsewhere.

Diana captivated the world when, on her fifth and final attempt, she became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida, without a shark cage. Diana explains why it was important for her to dream big, achieve the impossible and find joy in the face of skepticism. While experts, friends and family said it couldn’t be done, Diana's iron-will would not be swayed. When faced with unending obstacles and excruciating pain, her spirit would not be defeated. More than just a mantra for Diana, "find a way" is a prescription for fulfilling dreams and uplifting the spirit. Find out why Diana says the near-impossible swim elevated her sense of presence and mindfulness.

She also reveals her empowering three-word mantra, and shares how “The Wizard of Oz,” Stephen Hawking and the Taj Mahal helped her through the toughest times in the ocean.

9 Great Alt-Rock Cover Songs
Ongoing History of New Music
There’s just something fun about learning to play one of your favourite songs for yourself…you know, learning the lyrics, figuring out the chords and the rhythm and deconstructing all the constituent parts… Then you get deeper…you begin to appreciate how everything fits together, the artistic decisions made by songwriter made, what kind of musical skill is required, the sort of production that was employed all that…and by the time you’ve learned the song, you’ve learned a whole lot of other things, too…and you’re probably a better musician as a result…this is why learning to play other people’s music is so important… Now let’s look at it from the other side…if a song can be interpreted multiple times by many different people and it still sounds good, then that is a great song… The best compositions not only sound great when played by a full band, but also sound great when performed by one person around a campfire… And finally, there’s the fan aspect of all this…people love to hear songs done in different ways by different artists…sometimes the cover is even better than the original—or, at the very least, is revealed to be something more in the hands of someone else… With all this in mind, I’ve assembled a list of cover songs…and we’re going to go through with them to determine what makes them (and the original) great…

Crematory Whoopsies
Death in the Afternoon
Mistakes happen. Cremations happen. But few things capture our morbid imagination like cremation mistakes happening. Whether it’s the horror of cremating your coworker, a misplaced corpse on the way to America’s first modern cremation, or plumes of “human remains particulate” interrupting your Best Buy shopping experience, nothing fans the flames of our phobias like a cremation blunder. This week we talk about things that can go right, wrong, and sideways when you’re in the business of cremating corpses.

6. Manet & Morisot & Manet
The Land of Desire: French History and Culture
“Her name is Berthe Morisot, and she is a curiosity.” – Le Figaro, 1880 Welcome back to The Land of Desire, a French history podcast dedicated to exploring all the weird adventures, mysteries and surprising backstories behind French cultural icons. This week’s episode continues my new series which I’m really excited about: La Belle Époque, the Golden Age of Paris. This week I’ll focus on one of my favorite artists and female heroes, the Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot. I wish I could devote an entire series to Berthe’s story, but today I’m going to focus on one of the more interesting, and underpublicized, aspects of her life: her complex relationship with Edouard Manet…and his brother, Eugene. Zut alors! Christmas must have been awkward at the Manet household… This week, put on your painter’s smock and join me as we discuss the inner lives of “Manet & Morisot & Manet”. Episode 6: “Manet & Morisot & Manet” Selected Paintings by Berthe Morisot: The Cradle, 1872. Julie Daydreaming, 1894. Woman at Her Toilette, 1880. Summer’s Day, 1879. Portraits of a Lady: The Balcony, Edouard Manet, 1869. The Rest, Edouard Manet, 1870. Berthe Morisot in Pink Slipper, Edouard Manet, 1870. Berthe Morisot With Fan, Edouard Manet, 1874. Given as a gift to Berthe and Eugene on the occasion of their wedding. Berthe Morisot with Violets, Edouard Manet, 1872. This portrait hung in the bedroom of Julie Manet. Further Reading: I can’t recommend Sue Roe’s The Private Lives of the Impressionists highly enough. It’s terrific, I’ve reread it multiple times, and it was one of my original inspirations for beginning this podcast. I’ve recommended it before, but you may also enjoy Ross King’s The Judgment of Paris.   Sources: Dawn of the Belle Époque (Mary McAuliffe, 2011) Berthe Morisot (Anne Higonnet, 1995) The Private Lives of the Impressionists (Sue Roe, 2007) The post 6.

How New Orleans Could Set a New Course for Bail Reform
70 Million
New Orleans could become the battleground for bail reform. The city has one of the highest per capita incarceration rates in the world. And most people are there because they can’t pay their bail. The current arrangement with the local bail industry gives the impression that judges there could have a financial conflict of interest when setting bail. In this episode, Sonia Paul digs into how an ongoing lawsuit, pretrial consequences of bail, and poverty, bias, and algorithms come into play.

Joey prevented a kidnapping WWTL 10
What Was That Like
What you’re about to read is based on a criminal complaint and investigation. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. This happened in Waldo, Wisconsin. Thursday, September 27, 2018. Just after lunchtime, around 1 pm. Dean Hoffman entered the home of his former girlfriend, whose name I’m not going to mention. He was not invited in; he came in without permission. She told him to leave, and she started to call the police. He stopped her from calling, grabbed her by the waist, and pushed her backwards into the stairs that led to the second floor. He pulled her hair, ripped her shirt, and dragged her up the stairs. He punched her, causing a bloody nose and a black eye. He locked them both in the bathroom for about a half hour while she tended to her bloody nose. Then he tied her up, and kept her from leaving her own house for the next several hours. He even used HER phone to text her children, who lived nearby, telling them that she was sick and not to visit for a few days. Then he made a mistake. He ordered a pizza from Dominos. The delivery driver that brought the pizza was Joey Grundl. While the suspect was checking the pizza, Joey was able to make eye contact with the victim, and she communicated with him silently that she needed help. And because Joey was alert and willing to help, the story has a happy ending. The woman is safe, and Dean Hoffman is behind bars. Pretty exciting night for a guy who expected to just bring some food and collect some money. Like most people who are in some kind of situation like this, he said he doesn’t consider himself a hero. But he is. And check this out – not long after this happened, Joey was at a Taylor Swift concert and she actually recognized him from when she saw this story on the news, because on the news story he was wearing some Taylor Swift merch. He was invited backstage after the concert and got to meet her. That story is here. If you’d like to contact Joey and congratulation him on his quick thinking, you can contact him at jgrundlcrew27@gmail.com. And if you want to get some really cool content on a regular basis, including a photo of Joey when he met Taylor Swift, follow me on Instagram, @whatwasthatlike.

Episode 14: Musician Amy Helm on Records, Coffee, and Learning From the Greats
Five Things
This week's guest is musician Amy Helm. She’s a singer-songwriter based in Woodstock, New York, and she released her first solo album, “Didn’t It Rain,” in 2015. I remember hearing her sing with the band Ollabelle when I used to live in New York City — they were a gospel-ish collective that played around town, and I always loved her soulful voice. Later, I learned that she came by her musical abilities honestly: her father is the late Levon Helm, drummer for The Band. She was in Louisville last fall when she was touring with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, and I was able to get her into the studio to talk about her five things.

Sex Hurts
Bodies
A few years ago, something happened to Bodies producer and host Allison Behringer: sex started to hurt. She tried to ignore it; she tried researching it online. Her gynecologist told her it would go away. But it didn't. Sex was painful and no one around her seemed to understand. This episode is her personal quest to not only find out what was causing it, but also to learn how to advocate for herself. Her journey to figure out what’s wrong expands into the science and history of sexual and reproductive health. In the end, she discovers the culprit is a ubiquitous presence in many women's lives.
