A few weeks ago now, I went along, terrified, to the UCL Ear Institute to record a section of the hilariously good Bright Club podcasts. Four excellent academics (including myself) went along to chat with Steve Cross and David Morgan about Happiness. You can hear me talking in quite a surprisingly un-Geordie yet lispy way about digital humanities, digital things in museums, QRator and twitter. I mean what else I would talk about!? Very many thanks to Steve Cross, David Morgan, Martin Austwick, and Miriam Miller for making me sound half way decent!
Also talking about Happiness were:
- Dom Furniss who does fascinating things with Human Computer Interaction.
- Katherine Woolf who was wearing a fabulous dress was talking about trainee doctors
- Jason Dittmer who was comparing Captain America with Captain Britain.
What I really like about the bright club podcasts is that in between the bouts of giggles you actually hear some heavy intellectual stuff.
Some other bright club podcasts I can recommend are:
- Benedetteo De Martino
- Valerie Wallace
- WARS part one and two (hilarious but you need have a good sense of humour and not take offence very easily)
- Joe Flatman
As you can tell I do like a bit of the old bright club, they are surprisingly good to listen to on a run!
