This week photographer Steve Pyke tells us about his Philosopher portrait series and your host goes to France in search of photo books. Plus a remix of the three photographers we featured last year in the “Beyond the Fruited Plain” series: Richard Misrach, Alec Soth, and Naomi Harris.
Historian Jill Lepore talks Tea Party History. Alec Soth photographs from the Middle, Andrea S discovers the Middle, and your host fears the Middle! Plus TMi’s “Chris” learns more about who is really pulling the strings.
The theory of everything is a founding member of Radiotopia, the world’s best podcast network. And we are midway through our Kickstarter. We made our 250,000 goal in one week! But our work is not done. We want to change radio forever. We want to create more shows and a viable ecosystem so that we can all thrive. We need to make a ton of noise, so we can make headlines. To do this we need you: we need 20,000 of you to back Radiotopia. If you have already done this THANK YOU really it means so much. If you can get a family member or a friend to do the same (1 dollar is more than enough) now that would be amazing. Like I said we are not going to get to 20,000 without your help. And Hover.com, the same folks who got me dislike.club, and the same folks who have been sponsoring the podcast over the past few weeks – they have thrown down a 25k challenge. So if we get to 20,000 we get even more money. I have been dreaming of Radiotopia for ten years – I want more than anything for this to work. At our party I performed a preview of my upcoming series – the dislike.club – it will begin in a few weeks. You will enjoy it and it will be weekly! Yes, WEEKLY!
Too Much Information is the sober hangover after the digital party has run out of memes, apps and schemes. Host Benjamen Walker finds out that, in a world where everyone overshares the truth 140 characters at a time, telling tales might be the most honest thing to do.
