Episode 19: Eric Rauchway on How FDR and Keynes Ended the Depression | Who Makes Cents
"We’ve been hearing a lot about economist John Maynard Keynes’ midcentury economic plans for the U.S. since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008. Are the measures that Keynes and FDR took to combat the Depression in 2008 relevant to the present? What is the difference between fiscal and monetary policy, and how might changing our national approach to the monetary supply help our economic circumstances? Listen to find out! Eric Rauchway is Professor of History at the University of California, Davis. He is author of The Money Makers: How Roosevelt and Keynes Ended the Depression, Defeated Fascism, and Secured a Prosperous Peace. You can read more about his work here."

BBC - BBC Radio 4 Programmes - Analysis, What Is Money?
"We dream about it, argue about it, worry about it, celebrate it, spend it, save it, we transfer it from one emotion to another. But what exactly is money? And why do we trust it? Frances Stonor Saunders takes a journey through some of the fundamentals of money.
During her journey she dips her toe into the world of quantitative easing. How is that money invented? Is it as real as the pieces of paper in our wallets? And she explores some of the reasons for the calls to return to a gold standard. Essentially, she tries to gain a better understanding of what this stuff which we call money is really about

Quantum mechanics in popular-science books -
"Since its inception in the early part of the 20th century, the theory of quantum mechanics has consistently baffled many of the great physicists of our time. But while the ideas of quantum physics are challenging and notoriously weird, they seem to capture the public imagination and hold an enduring appeal. Evidence of this comes in part from the numerous popular-science books that have been written on the topic over the years. This episode in the Physics World books podcast series looks at the popularity of quantum mechanics in science writing"

Mission to Learn — Know Better. Live Better.
Mission to Learn is a destination for lifelong learners in a hyper-connected, information-overloaded world. My view is that learning is not just about courses, or schools, or teachers. In fact, I’m not all that concerned here with formal education or professional development. Learning happens everywhere, all the time, and the Web has exploded the possibilities for all of us – as individuals, as organizations, as a society – to reach our full potential through lifelong learning.

Sacred Modernities: Rethinking Modernity in a Post-Secular Age – conference page
The aim of this conference is to take stock of these transformations in the context of what is often referred to as a ‘post-secular’ age comprised of ‘multiple modernities’. Its agenda is emphatically interdisciplinary and welcomes scholars from the fields of history, sociology, cultural studies, theology, and others. In the same spirit, the conference adopts a broad, abundant understanding of the term ‘sacred’ to encompass not only formal religious worldviews, but also that which, in whatever fashion, disturbs, complicates, and perhaps abolishes, the distinction between the sacred and the secular.
