Delicious Ingredients: July 23-29, 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.)

fugitive wavesFugitive Waves, Episode 51: Harvest on Big Rice Lake (7/26/16): “Each fall, the Ojibwe tribes of northern Minnesota harvest wild rice by hand. It’s a long process that begins with families in canoes venturing into the tall grasses, where rice is poled and gently brushed with knockers into the bed of the canoe. We journey to White Earth Reservation, out onto Big Rice Lake in a canoe, to see how one tribe is supporting itself and changing the diet of its people through community kitchen projects. And we talk with the founder of White Earth Land Recovery Project, Winona LaDuke, about the land, her fight to save wild rice, GMOs, her family, philosophy, and her candidacy for vice president of the United States on the Green Party ticket with Ralph Nader.” I am from Minnesota and my grandpa worked on a reservation in the 1940s so this one especially resonated with me given that I grew up learning a little more about Native Americans than the average Jane.

Nocturne, Episode 20: A Luminous Bubble (7/22/16): “IThe night bus rolls through the city like a small enclosed world. You never know who you’ll meet or what you’ll see. One night, Helen Zaltzman’s bus ride home from the movies took a dark turn.” OMG. Helen Zaltzman in a real-life story involving violence on a bus in London. I didn’t want it to end!

switched on popSwitched on Pop, Episode 40: Around the World with Drake (7/14/16): “How do you create a hit that both breaks sound barriers and chart records? Drake has done this with a unique mix of international music from Africa, the Caribbean, the U.K. and Canada. But is his chart topping success musical appropriation or celebration? A deep listening reveals diverse influences and musical rhythms that have crossed oceans centuries before “One Dance” was even conceived. Plus, we debut Blinky Bill’s “So Strong,” his first single off his upcoming solo album.” This is a great Switched on Pop episode – check out my recent review of the show here.

qualifiedQualified, Episode 07: Emma (5/15/16): “Emma is a 20 year old college student who is recovering from Anorexia Nervosa.  Her story includes self-harming, cutting, depression, and time in a psychiatric ward.” I really hope this show picks back up at some point – it’s very raw, honest and touching.

modern loveModern Love: Three Mothers, One Bond (7/27/16): “The months leading up to first-time parenthood are full of unknowns. Will the baby be healthy? Will I ever sleep again? How will I juggle parenthood and my career? But the question that replayed endlessly in Jennifer Hauseman’s mind was: “Will I get to keep this child?” This was the nerve-wracking reality of her experience with open adoption. Actor Gaby Hoffmann reads Hauseman’s essay “Three Mothers, One Bond.” ” (22 minutes) Twitter: @WBUR @MeghnaWBUR

science vs

Science Vs.: Attachment Parenting (7/27/16): “Judy, a mother of two young kids, practices a demanding style of child-rearing. It’s called attachment parenting, and it says you should keep your baby close at all times, breastfeed on demand, share your bed, and avoid strollers. Like many attachment parents, Judy believes the sacrifices she makes will ensure her kids will become well-adjusted, successful, happy adults. But, what does the science say? To find out, Science Vs speaks to Prof. Alan Sroufe, Prof. Jane Fisher and Reut Avinun.” Way to go Wendy Zukerman for starting off with a bang-this is fantastically controversial and I love it!
