I agree. I’d love it if MPU could center on voices who don’t always get the mic and/or use Macs, etc, in powerful ways, to do things outside of tech.
- Would love to hear more Femme/Trans/Women voices
- … more BIPOC voices
- … academic voices (i.e., professional researchers)
- … more from folks running non-profits
- … more from artists
- … more from folks doing things with other lifeworld (farmers, fishers, vets, chefs, builders, journeymen, etc.)
- … more from folks outside the U.S.
I don’t mean to suggest that people from X group think different than people from Y for any essential reasons (e.g., men are from mars. . . ). But I do think we can learn a ton from folks trying to solve different problems in different context, with different goals.
Some episodes focused on non-podcast-centric problems I really appreciated: I find myself going back to episodes from Oogie McGuire (#470), Teddy Svoronos (#319, #383), Aleh Cherp (#221), Ian Elsner (#507).
Can’t wait to hear what David learns from revisiting paperless workflows. Grateful for the detailed historical context that Steven brings. I hope they continue to connect with whatever amped them up about podcasting when they started this.
