Just discovered a great new science #podcast. It's Called Science Vs. and it's on +Gimlet Media. Wendy Zukerman is the host. She's funny ("Coloroado"), and gets to the bottom of things. Topics include: Fracking, Attachment Parenting, the G-Spot. I like it.

From the +Invisibilia Podcast, this episode talks about mental health, and how acceptance can often yield better results than standard Western approaches. I learned of the town of Geel in Belgium where patients, or "boarders", live with foster families for an average or 20 years, a practice initiated by Saint Dymphna. The underlying theme of the episode is that striving for a solution can often lead to further unexpected problems, which is a fundamental understanding of +Systems Thinking.

I've been enjoying Malcolm Gladwell's new #podcast, "Revisionist History". He's very good at finding the characters and stories that connect us to the larger historical context. So far, I've learned how a popular painting in 1874 connects with tokenism and misogyny in many world parliaments, and how a series of interviews conducted during the Vietnam War shed light on how the US military intelligence agencies consistently fail to understand the motivations and capabilities of the opposing belligerents in America's many wars. Recommended.
