But a battle with a renowned wizard with ambiguous ambitions forces Sir Grace to consider things he never imagined, and face his greatest enemy yet: himself.
Welcome to Williamsville, where tradition and routine dictate the ebb and flow of life. Yet, Williamsville is not without its stories… How do one repressed arsonist, a sexually-charged geriatric, a slimy drug dealer and a soccer mom on steroids combine in the most exciting thing to happen in Williamsville since 1936? Starring a cast of talented and twisted University of Southern Maine students.
Mon copain Corentin est royaliste, militaire et d'extrème-droite. On n'a rien en commun sauf nos souvenirs de bringues. Il me raconte sa foi, ses opinions politiques, son engagement dans l'armée sur les traces d'un père dont la figure brutale le hante. De l'amour du Roi à celui des drogues, de la foi chrétienne à une virée dans un bordel de Djibouti, confessions d'un jeune homme pas si catholique. Enregistrements : février 20 - Entretien, musique originale et réalisation : Aurèle Jacquot - Mise en ondes et mix : Samuel Hirsch - Production : ARTE Radio
For more than thirty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and in our minds. He is the author of the multiple New York Times best sellers, including How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation (2013), Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual (2010); In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (2008); The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2006) and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World (2001). In his latest audiobook Caffeine: How caffeine created the modern world, Michal Pollan offers his provocative look into the profound ways that what we eat affects how we live. Caffeine, it turns out, has changed the course of human history: Pollan’s reporting explores how caffeine has won and lost wars, changed politics, and dominated economies. The science behind caffeine addiction forms the fascinating backdrop to this definitive look at an insidious drug that hides in plain sight. With his wide-ranging talent to entertain, inform, and perform, Michael Pollan’s Caffeine is essential listening in a world where an estimated two billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. Several of his books have been adapted for television. Netflix created a four-part documentary series based on Cooked in 2016, and documentary adaptations of In Defense of Food (2015) and The Botany of Desire (2009) both premiered on PBS. Pollan also appeared in the Academy Award nominated 2009 feature documentary, Food Inc. In 2015-2016, Pollan was a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard. In 2013, he was awarded Italy’s Premio Nonino prize. In 2012, he was given the Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of Biology Teachers. In 2010, Pollan was named to the 2010 TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people. Also in 2010 he was also awarded the Lennon Ono Grant for Peace by Yoko Ono. In 2009 he was named by Newsweek as one of the top 10 “New Thought Leaders.” Recorded at our second online 5x15 in May 2020. 5x15 brings together five outstanding individuals to tell of their lives, passions and inspirations.

In the aftermath of the Golden Horde's devastating strike into Eastern Europe, Christendom reels. As apocalyptic as the assaults were, the great enemy's sudden and inexplicable evaporation offers no comfort, and only more questions. In order to get some answers, the Holy See will dispatch an unlikely candidate to make his way across the whole of Eurasia in an attempt to first find, and then meet with, the King of the Tartars - whoever, and wherever he may be... Time Period Covered: 1245-1247 CE Major Historical Figures: European Christendom: Pope Innocent IV [r. 1243-1254] Friar Giovanni da Pian del Carpine (John of Plano Carpini) [ca. 1185-1252] Friar Benedict of Poland [ca. 1200-ca. 1280] Friar Stephen of Bohemia Konrad I, High Duke of Krakow [ca. 1187-1247] Prince Daniel Romanovich of Galacia [1201-1264] Grand Prince Vasilko (Basil) Romanovich of Kiev [1203-1269] Grand Prince Yaroslav II Vsevolodovich of Vladimir [1191-1246] Mongol Empire: Guyük Khaghan [r. 1246-1248] Toregene Khatun [r. 1241-1246] Batu Khan of the Golden Horde [ca. 1205-1255] Grand Secretary Chinqai of Khwarazm
Growing up, I believed a horrible lie. I had this idea that when I got married, my life would revolve around my wife, her needs, her wants, and her dreams. And her life would revolve around mine. We would travel together… Pursue hobbies together… Clean the house together… Watch shows together... Raise kids together... Basically, we would do everything together. Neither of us would ever find anyone else attractive. We wouldn’t even have friends of the opposite sex. I would be all she needed. She would be all I needed. It was going to be just me and her… together... against the world. Honestly, it sounded kinda romantic. But now that I’m a little older and wiser, I have learned this “romantic” idea is a recipe for disaster. Here’s why. In order to have a thriving marriage, it requires you to balance the needs of 3 different parties. Your needs. Your partner’s needs. And the needs of your marriage. When you treat your needs, your partner’s needs, and the needs of your marriage as if they are all the same, all the time… someone will end up regularly sacrificing their needs. When this happens, you might start to feel suffocated, or smothered. Or maybe you’ll begin to feel frustrated and resentful. Or you could just lose your identity. Completely forget who you are. This is called Enmeshment. It can feel safe for a while… but eventually it feels terrible. Here’s why. As renowned psychotherapist, Esther Perel says, “Modern relationships are cauldrons of contradictory longings.” You need comfort, predictability, stability, and safety. But you also want spontaneity, surprise, mystery, and desire. You want to feel a sense of togetherness, companionship, and connection with the one you love. But you don’t want to feel like a prisoner. And that means, deep down, you need to have some freedom, a sense of independence, and individuality. When your desires, needs, interests, and dreams are sacrificed for, or consumed by your partner’s (or vice versa) you lose something vitally important. You lose half of yourself. You exist in the world (and in your relationship) as an incomplete person. You start to feel your partner’s worries, anxieties, pains, and frustrations as if they were your own. The quality of your life is directly tied to your partner’s moods, struggles, and insecurities. It’s hard to distinguish between what thoughts and emotions are yours… and which ones belong to your partner. It can get confusing and overwhelming. Balancing these opposing needs requires thoughtful effort. To continue Esther Perel’s quote, “Reconciling the domestic and the erotic is a delicate balancing act that we achieve intermittently at best. It requires knowing your partner while remaining open to the unknown, cultivating intimacy that respects privacy. Separateness and togetherness alternate, or proceed in counterpoint. Desire resists confinement, and commitment mustn't swallow freedom whole.”

An old lady tormented by lewd phone calls blasts a man with a shotgun as he walks in through the door, and Brattleboro’s everyman detective, Joe Gunther, is called out to investigate. It’s clear that not everything is as it seems – the description of the phone calls and the dead man outside don’t match up. And even stranger, the dead man and the old lady were jurors on the same controversial trial three years ago.

Just some weird random spikes of noise (wind? something climbing atop the bark which was hiding the recorder? ghosts?) while camping overnight in the woods. If you want a more pleasant ASMR like thing, I also have like 12 hours of recordings of just the river flowing with bird sounds, which is quite pleasant...

We are so saddened by the passing of New York City icon and comedy legend Jerry Stiller. Stiller was an early supporter of Symphony Space and a frequent reader at Selected Shorts. We’re going to miss his unmatched charisma and incredible talent. For this week’s Sunday Stories, we are honoring him with a laugh: his reading of John Sayles’ short story “At the Anarchists’ Convention” is a laugh-out-loud classic that he made all his own.
