Food & Culture: November 2021 podcast playlist

Food & Culture: November 2021 podcast playlist

Food has a unique power. At its most fundamental, it nourishes the body. But, the true power of food is its link to culture. Food can spark a memory, comfort, and cure. A meal has the power to bring people together and tear them apart. It can be a source of joy or a source of shame. This playlist explores food and culture from the perspective of place, heritage, identity, language, and history.


Black Experiences: February 2021 podcast playlist

Black Experiences: February 2021 podcast 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.


Ologies host, Alie Ward

Adela chats with Alie Ward, the host of the Ologies podcast. We featured the “Phonology with Nicole Holliday” episode of Ologies on our podcast listening list on Language.



Language Roundup

Adela and Sara discuss the podcast playlist on Language, which included episodes from The Allusionist, Ologies, Twenty Thousand Hertz, and Hidden Brain. Then, as usual, they diverge from the assigned listening list to talk about the recent Podcast Brunch Club meetings that happened in Houston and Chicago and some of the recommendations that came out of those meetings.


Language: Podcast Playlist

Language: Podcast Playlist

There are somewhere around 7,000 languages in the world, but only 23 languages account for more than half of the world’s population and nearly 2/3 of all languages are from Asia and Africa. Languages can be born, invented, change, and die. They can also unite or divide. There is some controversy about whether languages can change the way we think, but there is no doubt that language and identity are inextricably linked. This podcast listening list explores language from a variety of angles.



Migration & Immigration: Listening List

Migration & Immigration: Listening List

This topic is very personal for our Shanghai PBC members. We’re all migrants in one form or another…”expats” living in China from all over the world, migrants from other cities to Shanghai, “overseas returnees” who’ve lived, worked and/or studied abroad. We tried to choose episodes that cover diverse migration situations. We hope everyone enjoys a fruitful discussion from these episodes. We found so much great content, so we’ve included a lot of bonus listening if you care to delve deeper.
