Brought to you by LinkedIn Jobs recruitment platform with 800M+ users, FreshBooks cloud-based small business accounting software, and ButcherBox premium meats delivered to your door.Wade Davis (@wadedavisofficial, daviswade.com) is Professor of Anthropology and the BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia. Between 2000 and 2013, he served as Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. Named by the NGS as one of the Explorers for the Millennium, he has been described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet, and passionate defender of all of life's diversity.” An ethnographer, writer, photographer, and filmmaker, Wade holds degrees in anthropology and biology and a PhD in ethnobotany, all from Harvard University. Mostly through the Harvard Botanical Museum, he spent over three years in the Amazon and Andes as a plant explorer, living among 15 indigenous groups while making some 6000 botanical collections. His work later took him to Haiti to investigate folk preparations implicated in the creation of zombies, an assignment that led to his writing The Serpent and the Rainbow, an international bestseller, later released by Universal as a motion picture. In recent years, his work has taken him to East Africa, Borneo, Nepal, Peru, Polynesia, Tibet, Mali, Benin, Togo, New Guinea, Australia, Colombia, Vanuatu, Mongolia, and the high Arctic of Nunavut and Greenland. Wade is the author of 375 scientific and popular articles and 23 books including One River, The Wayfinders, Into the Silence, and Magdalena. His photographs have been widely exhibited and have appeared in 37 books and 130 magazines, including National Geographic, Time, Geo, People, Men's Journal, and Outside. He was curator of “The Lost Amazon: The Photographic Journey of Richard Evans Schultes,” first exhibited at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. In 2012 he served as guest curator of “No Strangers: Ancient Wisdom in the Modern World,” at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. He was curator of “Everest: Ascent to Glory,” Bowers Museum, February 12–August 28, 2022. National Geographic has published two collections of his photography: Light at the Edge of the World (2001) and Wade Davis: Photographs (2018).His 40 film credits include Light at the Edge of the World, an eight-hour documentary series written and produced for National Geographic. His most recent film, El Sendero de la Anaconda, a 90-minute feature documentary shot in the Northwest Amazon, is available on Netflix.A professional speaker for 30 years, Wade has lectured at over 200 universities and 250 corporations and professional associations. In 2009 he delivered the CBC Massey Lectures. He has spoken from the main stage at TED five times, and his three posted talks have been viewed by 8 million. His books have appeared in 22 languages and sold approximately one million copies.Wade, one of 20 Honorary Members of the Explorers Club, is Honorary Vice President of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and recipient of 12 honorary degrees. He has been awarded the 2009 Gold Medal from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, the 2011 Explorers Medal, the 2012 David Fairchild Medal for botanical exploration, the 2015 Centennial Medal of Harvard University, the 2017 Roy Chapman Andrews Society's Distinguished Explorer Award, the 2017 Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration, and the 2018 Mungo Park Medal from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

Listen to the Sat. Jan. 14, 2023 edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The episode features our PANW report with dispatches on the tributes from the African National Congress (ANC) of South Africa upon the death of former parliamentary speaker Dr. Frene Ginwala; a government minister has been arrested in Brazil in connection with the attempted coup one week ago; the opposition forces in the West African state of Benin have questioned the varacity of the recently held parliamentary elections; and the Somalian government is calling for an intensified effort to defeat the rebel group Al-Shabaab. In the second hour we look in detail at the life, times and contributions of ANC stalwart Dr. Frene Ginwala. The 94th birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is being commemorated this weekend in the United States. We listen to his historic address in Detroit on June 23, 1963 where an earlier iteration of the "I Have a Dream" speech was delivered. In addition, we review the efforts of Dr. King in Chicago during 1966 among other contributions.

Hallo! Stikstofcrisis, asielcrisis, energiecrisis, woningcrisis: het wemelde in 2022 van de crises. Haast zou je vergeten dat er ook nog wat goed nieuws was te melden. Om het jaar goed te beginnen daarom deze podcast met een volstrekt willekeurige opsomming van positieve ontwikkelingen. Wat te denken van Niger? Het eerste Afrikaanse land dat rivierblindheid heeft uitgebannen. Slaapziekte? Verdwenen uit Benin, Oeganda, Rwanda en Equatoriaal-Guinea. Malariadoden? Bijna 30 procent minder in het afgelopen decennium (en vorig jaar werd bekend dat onderzoekers van de Universiteit van Oxford een werkzaam vaccin hebben ontwikkeld!). Scheepsbrandstoffen met 3,5 procent zwaveloxides? Mag niet meer (en scheelt 30.000 doden per jaar!). En dan zijn er nog de gunstige binnenlandse ontwikkelingen. Hele categorieën van criminaliteit die nauwelijks meer bestaan. Autodiefstal, ooit een plaag, inmiddels een zeldzaamheid. Fietsdiefstal? Factor vijf gedaald. Inbraak, diefstal, geweldsmisdrijven, vernielingen, muntmisdrijven: allemaal op zijn retour! Schoolverlaters: twee keer minder dan twintig jaar eerder. Fijnstof, stikstofoxiden, zwaveloxides: minder, minder, minder. Leesvoer bij deze aflevering: • We begonnen met het noemen van het artikel dat deze aflevering inspireerde: '99 Good News Stories You Probably Didn't Hear About in 2022'. (https://corr.es/67c28e) • 2022 werd uiteindelijk het jaar met mondiaal de laagste kindersterfte ooit gemeten. Een gegeven dat Rutger deed denken aan een boek dat hij jaren geleden las: Getting Better van Charles Kenny, waarin al te lezen viel dat we wereldwijd grote successen aan het boeken zijn op het gebied van gezondheid. (https://corr.es/d27834) • Jesse vertelde dat het Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving alle uitstoot van 2022 op een rijtje gezet heeft en vertelde over de — voor hem — meest opvallende statistieken. Het hele overzicht vind je hier. (https://corr.es/3227f0) • We tipten ook een aantal podcasts.

She is #DopePeopleFrom the east to the west, global and beyond, Polaryss' zone of genius is at the intersection of art, math, science, & tech, taking her to places like Uganda, Benin & Brazil! Polaryss is an educator, Hip Hop artist, and activist whose synergy and passion are unmatched. Born and raised in the Mecca of Hip Hop, The Bronx, New York, Polaryss incorporates her art and life experiences into every aspect of her work. Whether she's performing on stage or promoting cultural diplomacy globally, she is always educating and entertaining. As an educator and social entrepreneur, Polaryss uses her craft to advocate for women in Hip Hop as well as educational equity in underserved communities. She uses Hip Hop in the classroom as a tool to teach and promote self-advocacy, effective communication, and critical thinking. She also utilizes the skill of improvisation (freestyle) to teach social and fiscal responsibility, classroom curriculum, and self-awareness. As an educator and Hip Hop Ambassador, Polaryss takes pride in the innovative ways she brings Hip Hop into the classroom, pairing it with STEAM and project-based learning to increase literacy. The founder of The Intentional Movement Project, an arts-based literacy program that uses Hip Hop to identify and address giftedness in historically underserved youth, Polaryss has made a significant impact on the global Hip Hop community and seeks to do the same in the field of education. She created The Intentional Movement Project (TIMP) to put emphasis on historically underrepresented gifted learners and aims at partnering with academic stakeholders to increase access to STEAM-based arts education.

Queen Idia (c. 1500s) rewrote the rulebook on mothering in ancient Benin. She fought for her son's life and place on the throne – and made herself a queen in the process.While motherhood can take many forms, to mother is to usher forth new generations through care, work and imagination. For the entire month of December, we're celebrating mothers — including those who raised children who went on to lead the civil rights movement and school desegregation efforts, such as Alberta King and Louise Little, as well as mothers of movements like Lorena Borjas who started the Latinx trans movement. All of the women featured this month were dedicated to the survival of children in their work and to imagining better futures for the next generation.History classes can get a bad rap, and sometimes for good reason. When we were students, we couldn't help wondering... where were all the ladies at? Why were so many incredible stories missing from the typical curriculum? Enter, Womanica. On this Wonder Media Network podcast we explore the lives of inspiring women in history you may not know about, but definitely should.Every weekday, listeners explore the trials, tragedies, and triumphs of groundbreaking women throughout history who have dramatically shaped the world around us. In each 5 minute episode, we'll dive into the story behind one woman listeners may or may not know–but definitely should. These diverse women from across space and time are grouped into easily accessible and engaging monthly themes like Educators, Villains, Indigenous Storytellers, Activists, and many more.  Womanica is hosted by WMN co-founder and award-winning journalist Jenny Kaplan. The bite-sized episodes pack painstakingly researched content into fun, entertaining, and addictive daily adventures. Womanica was created by Liz Kaplan and Jenny Kaplan, executive produced by Jenny Kaplan, and produced by Liz Smith, Grace Lynch, Maddy Foley, Brittany Martinez, Edie Allard, Lindsey Kratochwill, Adesuwa Agbonile, Carmen Borca-Carrillo, Taylor Williamson, Ale Tejeda, Sara Schleede, Abbey Delk, and Alex Jhamb Burns.

This week, we are welcoming a truly special guest, one of my best friends, Kandace Layne. Kandace is a tattoo artist and tarot reader from my hometown of Atlanta Georgia, and she recently just reached her 10 year anniversary as a professional in her field! To celebrate, I invited Kandace onto the cast to discuss the magical history of tattooing and the process of spirit guided image magic she brings into her art. What can the history of tattooing teach us about image magic as medicine? How can we brainstorm ourselves into a good business practice while maintaining spiritual integrity in the wake of late stage capitalism? What lessons can we learn from our animal brother and sisters? What can we learn about the complexities of colonialism by studying the spiritual significance of ritual scarification in places like Benin? We also chat some about a ritual idea Kandace will be working on bringing into her tattoo practice over the next couple years! It's the holidays, so unlike most of my other episodes, I let this one unfold as a caress among sisters instead of my usual analytical style of interviewing. So cuddle up by the fire with some hot cider and tune into this beautiful artist and animist spin her stories of compassion for the spirits of the Earth. All this and more, on today's episode of SaturnVox. To find out more on Kandace, check out her website here, where you can check out her designs and book a tattoo session. Don't forget to find your way to her store where you can get prints and other items like seraphim tote bags! You can also find her on instagram via the link here.
