Halcyon Listens - December 2013

During December 2013, we listened to and would recommend the following podcasts:

  • The final Start the Week of 2013 featured a lively debate on the future of education.
  • Genetics and their connections with education, surgery and lost operas formed an eclectic mix on the month's third Start the Week.
  • The following Start the Week ranged from Coriolanus to whether democracy breeds complacency rather than wisdom or reform; on to why great military strategists often make such poor political leaders. and how one can keep one's moves hidden, inspired by the world of chess.
  • The relationship between film, cities and landscape was discussed on Start the Week; as was what our cities smell like, and what we lose when we sterilise our environment. The programme also explored remote communities and whether we've become merely nostalgic for a bygone age of close neighbourhoods, or whether it's possible to reconstruct them.
