podcast thursdays: Radio Lab – Sleep

I’m almost ridiculous excited to introduce a new repeating feature to musing. I’m sure you all know of Ben Carter and his podcast Tales of a Red Clay Rambler. It is one the best arts and culture podcasts out there and as a bonus it is focused on ceramics. I’m sure for many of us it is the soundtrack to our studios. With podcasts such as Ben’s and Brian Jones (www.brianrjones.com), and a new up and coming podcast – The Potters Cast by Paul Blais (thepotterscast.com), there are hours of inspiring stories to go through. But what if (dare I say it?) we want to listen to some other podcasts that are equally as interesting but maybe not about clay? Well I’ve enlisted Ben’s help to start compiling a listening list for you of some of his favorite episodes from other podcasts. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Ben to musing about mud as a regular bi-weekly feature. Ben’s extensive knowledge and experience will surely make this new feature one to look forward to. 
Thanks Ben!
Radio Lab- Sleep-
Episode 2 of Season 3
Radio Lab’s unique brand of story telling is candy for my
brain. It was one of the first podcasts that I became addicted to and after
only a few episodes I set upon a quest to listen to every episode. One of my favorite
early episodes, Sleep, looks at what
happens to humans, and all the world’s creatures, when they fall asleep. Visit http://www.radiolab.org/story/91528-sleep/

“Radiolab is a show about
curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between
science, philosophy, and human experience.”
