We are past the point of reversing climate change by mere mitigation strategies. Intervention is required. Enter: GEOENGINEERING.
In this roundup episode, we chat about the podcast playlist on Community Responses to Disability. In the community input segment, the PBC community recommended other podcasts that either focus on disability or are created by someone who is disabled. Finally, we diverged from the theme of disabilities to talk about our new year podcast resolutions. […]
It is estimated that one billion people, or 15% of the world’s population, experience some form of disability. Over the years, there has been some progress in recognizing the importance of accessibility and inclusion. But our governments and workplaces and communities still have much work to do to embrace and empower people with disabilities. This month’s episodes look at different types of community responses to disability (some more helpful than others) in hopes that we learn more about what we can do to increase inclusivity for all.
This podcast playlist was curated by the amazing Jennifer Barragan, leader of the Geneva chapter of Podcast Brunch Club. The topic of space is as vast as space itself. There is human exploration and the future habitation of space, astronomy and current events like the discovery of gravitational waves and the collision of two neutron […]
This is our first ever “community commentary” episode of the Podcast Brunch Club podcast! Emily Knight, audio ninja and chapter leader of our PBC-Bristol chapter, put together this episode for us. She recorded PBC-Bristol chapter members’ reflections and comments on the PBC podcast playlist on CREATIVITY.
I used to think creativity was something you either had or you didn’t. If you were creative, you would be drawn to something like writing or playing an instrument at an early age and continue to practice until you were really good. And if you weren’t really good at something creative by the time you were an adult, it simply meant you didn’t have the right passion or the right DNA. I failed at pretty much every instrument I tried growing up and nothing “creative” seemed to stick. Fortunately, I now know this binary view of creativity is complete hogwash, thanks in large part to podcasts. In an interview in one of the episodes below, author Elizabeth Gilbert says that the term “creative people” is redundant. All of us are creative, and sometimes you just need some permission to see yourself that way and to re-frame to yourself what creativity even means. My aim for the below list is to explore how the idea of creativity has evolved over time, what it actually is, and how we can use it everyday. I’m also hoping these episodes spark a little creative inspiration for you to follow your curiosity, like they did for me.
