Navigating Uncertainty: October 2020 listening list

Navigating Uncertainty: October 2020 listening list

There is no question that we are living in uncertain times. We do not know when the global coronavirus pandemic will end. Around the world, countries are facing important elections, social justice protest movements, refugee crises, and much more. Trying to go through the motions of normal daily life and understand one’s role in creating the world we want to live in can be confounding and exhausting. The episodes this month all discuss different types of uncertainty and ways to navigate it. Hopefully we can all find something helpful to take away about how to navigate these challenging and often dark days.

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.


Wanderlust: Podcast Listening List

Wanderlust: Podcast Listening List

“Wanderlust” is a strong desire or impulse to travel. For some of us, wanderlust springs from a desire to see interesting or unique places. Some of us wander because our reality is, for one reason or another, unsatisfying. The reasons for traveling can vary as much as the effect that our travels have on us.
