By golly, I never thought I’d get back to having a Blogroll … except these aren’t necessarily blogs. Still, these are things I really value and I think other folks should explore.

  • Podcast: Mothers of Invention: Join former Irish President Mary Robinson and comedian Maeve Higgins in this uplifting new podcast, celebrating amazing women doing remarkable things in pursuit of climate justice.
  • Podcast: Quirks & Quarks: For the past 40 years, Quirks & Quarks has brought its listeners to the cutting edge of scientific inquiry. Every week, the program presents the people behind the latest discoveries in the physical and natural sciences, from the smallest sub-atomic particle to the largest objects in the sky and everything in between. The program also examines the political, social, environmental and ethical implications of new developments in science and technology. Quirks & Quarks is a program for people fascinated by the world above, below and around them. And you don’t need a PhD to enjoy it.
  • Ongoing video series: Ask a Mortician. We’re all a bit weird about death, with its taboos and awkwardness. [It] is about making death a part of your life. … Accepting that death itself is natural, but the death anxiety and terror of modern culture are not.
  • Author: Kristine Kathryn Rusch. She writes excellent novels, short stories and other stuff in various genres, sometimes under pen names. I even read her writing in genres I don’t really care for. I especially enjoy her (intelligent) sci-fi series like The Retrieval Artist and The Diving Universe. Her ongoing blog posts about the business of writing should be a must-read for any author — she really knows her stuff.
  • Ongoing video series: Braincraft by Nessy Hill. [A] channel about your brain, body and behaviour that aims to help you understand yourself and the world a little bit better.
