Disruption Listening List Roundup
Adela and Sara discuss the Disruption listening list & then diverge to talk about what else they’re listening to.
Helen Zaltzman, host of The Allusionist podcast
Sara chats with Helen Zaltzman, the host of The Allusionist and Answer Me This podcasts. We featured an episode of The Allusionist called “Toki Pona” on our podcast playlist on Language.
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
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.
