TED Talks and The Retroist

Show 13 means we talk about the number 13, and the absurd phobia Triskaidekaphobia,(yes, I know, I mispronounce it horribly) which leads to elevators,  parallel universes and John Malkovich.

We move onto our podcasts for this show and start with the video podcast TED Talks
As promised a list of TED talks Springs has enjoyed. This is in no way a complete list.
Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity
Jill Bolte Taylor’s stroke of insight
Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius
Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter …
Theo Jansen: My creations, a new form of life
VS Ramachandran: 3 clues to understanding your brain
Amanda Palmer: The art of asking

Our second podcast is The Retroist, which is one of my new subscriptions after last weekends podcast thinning.  It’s 70’s/80’s all the way and I relive some of my youth via a bloke from New Jersey.  Anyone who devotes an entire episode to the Colecovision video game system has my vote.

Further podcasty chat includes podcast anxiety, ridiculous and, tangentally, maggot cheese mmmmm.

More randomness with Jumping the Shark, Bones, MASH and a Veronica Mars Kickstarter update.  It may come as a surprise but Springs has a pet peeve.  We also get a small cameo from Mr Springs!!
And finally we end with Springs entering the podcast via harp to announce the final tally for the VM Kickstarter.
