Delicious Ingredients: April 8, 2016

Each week I will publish the most Delicious Ingredients of my Audible Feast … the scrumptious, delectable, savory, rich, sweet, and spicy podcast episodes that have fed my ears this week. This will also allow me to link directly to episodes via either Soundcloud, Stitcher, or a podcast’s website (which are often amazing and contain bonus info or complementary stories). This also brings more visual content to my site as I can link to some beautiful logos and original artwork from these sites! All episode descriptions and artwork come from the linked sites. (Note: I also try to track every episode I listen to here.)

Delicious Ingredients: Week Ending April 8, 2016


FiveThirtyEight Elections: Momentum and Misogyny (3/28/16): “Our elections podcast crew discusses whether “momentum” is real and whether Bernie Sanders has it coming off of his wins in Hawaii, Alaska and Washington. Plus, how much will Donald Trump’s record of sexism on and off the campaign trail hurt him with voters if he reaches the general election in November?




Intersection: Hillary Clinton Gets Intersectional (2/16/16): “In the latest episode of Intersection, we continue our series examining the presidential candidates through the lens of identity. First Marco Rubio, then Ben Carson, then Donald Trump, and now: Hillary Clinton. How has the former Secretary of State’s approach to voters of color changed since her presidential bid in 2008? Will her policies be better or worse for America’s poor than Bernie Sanders’s? And how is she faring with women of different generations?”


counter storiesCounter Stories: Presidential Debates, the Oscars, and Cross-Cultural Communication (3/4/16): “Counter Stories is a regular conversation about race, identity, social justice and culture. The members of Counter Stories — Hlee Lee, Anthony Galloway, Don Eubanks and Luz Maria Frias — discuss important topics in the news, but also branch out to talk about how culture is portrayed on TV, in the media and more. In today’s conversation, the group discusses the Oscars, recent presidential debates and the challenge of conversing across cultures and communities.”



Radiolab: Update: 23 Weeks 6 Days (3/23/16): “Kelley and Tom had hoped that meeting their daughter would be the happiest moment of their life. But when she came early — at just 23 weeks and 6 days, that moment was full of terror and an impossibly difficult decision. And when the time came to face it, Tom and Kelley turned to their baby for help. Seeing their daughter for the first time, they looked for her to “declare herself.” That’s a phrase that comes up again and again to help guide decisions in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. But parents and medical professionals have very different ideas about what the phrase really means. Nurse Tracy Hullet and Neonatologist Keith Barrington describe the difficulty of interpreting the fuzzy boundary between a baby’s strength of will, and simple physiology. Meanwhile Kelley and Tom are left to wonder, and wait.”


Nocturne, Episode 3: What the Baker Saw (1/22/15): “While working at night in the wilds of the Marin Headlands, baker Eduardo Morell witnesses the struggle between life and death. This struggle plays out all around us all the time, in ways both large and small.”




99% Invisible, Episode 205: Flying Food (3/22/16): “The last hundred years or so of food advertising have been shaped by this one simple fact: real food usually looks pretty unappetizing on camera. It’s static and boring to look at, and it tends to wilt under the glare of hot studio lights. So advertisers have had to walk a fine line between enhancement and fakery, trying all kinds of tricks to get food to look good.”
