Every month we post a thematic Listening List with 1-5 hours of podcast episodes for our PBC meetings and online discussions. We send these out by email, so be sure to subscribe. You can always find the selections here.
Fairy tales have been impacting culture for centuries longer than social media. These stories are so deeply entwined in our upbringings and our psyches that it’s often hard to realize exactly how firmly they have taken hold of us. Let’s take a step back and look at the stories historically and contextually—what were they trying to tell us, and what are they telling us now?

An exploration of the very nature of sound, in all its different temperaments, in all its varying cadence, and the simplicity in which it exists, but the complexities in which it manifests.

In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), we’ve curated a playlist that highlights women who challenge the status quo.

If you feel those are missing and want to hear more about the history of women’s rights, check out some of the bonus episodes below the main playlist.
In honor of Black History Month, we put together a podcast that highlights 5 stories from Black people around the world. This is by no means a comprehensive exploration of the breadth of the Black experience, but we hope it offers a few lenses from which to begin a discussion, including belonging, culture, citizenship, language, struggle, and joy.
