When her college internship was canceled by the COVID-19 shutdown in spring 2020, Annie Rauwerda had a lot of unexpected time on her hands. And instead of learning to bake bread or speak Esperanto, she began curating weird and amusing things she found on Wikipedia. Two years later, Depths of Wikipedia has more than 1.5 million followers combined across https://www.instagram.com/depthsofwikipedia/ (Instagram), https://twitter.com/depthsofwiki (Twitter), and https://www.tiktok.com/@depthsofwikipedia/ (TikTok). That success means walking a fine line: Annie wants to celebrate Wikipedia's oddities and encourage her followers to edit pages, but not to intentionally contribute false info or "bad writing for the sake of humor." "Sometimes I'll post something and then it'll start getting vandalized a bunch," she says. "Like when I posted the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mammals_displaying_homosexual_behavior (List of Mammals Displaying Homosexual Behavior) — don't do this, by the way — people started editing it to add in their name. It's funny, I guess, for two seconds, but then you just feel bad." Today on Follow Friday, Annie shares some great follow recommendations: Meta-influencer Harry Hill (@veryharryhill on https://twitter.com/veryharryhill (Twitter), Instagram, and https://www.tiktok.com/@veryharryhill/ (TikTok)); Twitter bots such as https://twitter.com/NYT_first_said (@NYT_first_said), https://twitter.com/ResNeXtGuesser (@ResNeXtGuesser), and https://twitter.com/aceCourtBot (@AceCourtBot); post-ironic Catholic Instagram pages such as https://tilda.cc/page/ineedgodineverymomentofmylife (@ineedgodineverymomentofmylife) and https://www.instagram.com/praying/ (@praying); and TikTok aggregator Leia Jospe (@favetiktoks420 on Instagram).

In summer 2020, the statue of Edward Colston, a merchant and trader of enslaved persons, was toppled by protestors and pushed into the harbour in Bristol, England. The statue's removal provoked both public applause and condemnation. The so-called ‘Colston Four' were acquitted of criminal damage in January 2022; but the UK's Attorney General is currently seeking clarification from the Court of Appeal over the legal arguments presented in the case.

What are the rights and wrongs of toppling statues? Sometimes everyone agrees it's a good idea. After the second world war, for example, the defeat of fascism meant that all over Europe Hitler statues were toppled and destroyed. After the collapse of communism some statues of Stalin actually survived. Just a couple of years ago Black Lives Matter protests led to the hauling down statues of slaveholders and imperialists – for example in the UK a statue of slaver – and philanthropist, Edward Colston was hurled into a harbour. Some argued Colston should be left alone because he was just a man of his time. So, when is it right to tear down a statue and do you need a democratically elected committee to make the decision?

Smashing Statues - Dr. Erin Thompson The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates interview series on radio and podcast.  I'm Paul Vogelzang and we have a wonderful episode today with Smithsonian Associate, Dr. Erin Thompson.   Dr. Erin Thompson, is a professor of art crime at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and is a leading expert in the legal, political, and social issues involved in such battles.  As America's only professor of art crime, Dr. Thompson studies the black market for looted antiquities, art forgery, museum theft, and the  ethics of digital reproductions of US cultural heritage. Dr. Thompson's new book Smashing Statues: The Rise and Fall of America's Public Monuments and her upcoming presentation at Smithsonian Associates are  the subject of our conversation today.  More details are found on our website and at Smithsonian Associates with links in our show notes. A timely and fractious national debate over public monuments has erupted in America. Some people risk imprisonment to tear down long-ignored hunks of marble; others form armed patrols to defend them. Why do we care so much about statues? And who gets to decide which ones should stay up and which should come down?  American holds thousands of historical monuments… That of course is our guest today, author Erin L. Thompson as she traces the turbulent history of American monuments and its ironies—starting with the enslaved Black man who helped make the statue of Freedom that still sits atop the U.S. Capitol—and explores the surprising motivations behind such contemporary flashpoints as the toppling of a statue of Columbus at the Minnesota State Capitol in 2020.   Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show Smithsonian Associate's interview series on radio and podcast, author, professor of art crime and Smithsonian Associate Dr. Erin Thompson.

"The Buddha began his first teaching by telling his listeners to take the middle way, the middle path between extreme asceticism on one hand and sensual indulgence on the other. This exhortation to moderation underlies much of Buddhist thought through the centuries and across traditions. The Buddha's time was a period of great religious upheaval and experimentation. Wandering renunciates from various sects, seeking spiritual fulfillment and freedom from the suffering of life, became a common sight on the Gangetic Plain. Before he was known as the Buddha, or Awakened One, he was Siddhartha Gautama, a wealthy nobleman living in luxury. But later he left his home, renounced that lifestyle, and embraced the other extreme as an ascetic practicing mortifying austerities. Statues depicting this period of the Buddha's life show an emaciated figure with all of his ribs visible as he sits meditating. It is said he survived on just a few grains of rice a day. Ultimately, the Buddha realized that both indulgence and deprivation were equally useless, even detrimental to his goal of achieving awakening. Legend says that this moment of awareness occurred the day before his enlightenment. Close to death, the Buddha abandoned his austere practices and the ascetics he had been practicing with, and shortly after that he encountered a young woman named Sujata, who offered him a meal of rice and milk, restoring his energy. Having found fault with both extremes, the Buddha embraced the middle path in between. In his first sermon, he expounded this middle way along with the eightfold path and its prescriptions for right behavior." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

In the United States, questions of how we celebrate – or condemn – leaders in the past have never been more contentious. In 2017, a statue of Robert E. Lee was removed – leading to a race riot and terrorist attack. But in 2020, statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, and even Ulysses S. Grant were defaced or toppled. All of this comes to the question of how we judge the past. When are the morals and ethics of people born centuries earlier excusable for the conditions of their birth, and when are they universally condemnable? What separates a Thomas Jefferson from an Emperor Nero?To discuss this incredibly challenge is someone perhaps nobody better qualified: Dr. Victor Davis Hanson. He is an emeritus classics professor and author of books on the Peloponnesian War or assessing the ancient world's best military leader. He was also awarded the National Humanities Medal in 2007 and was a presidential appointee in 2007–2008 on the American Battle Monuments Commission.We discuss the following:•Times when American's feared the removal of Jefferson or Theodore Roosevelt statues in 2021 (or their toppling in riots. But we have also celebrated statue removal, such as the removal of Saddam Hussein's statues after the fall of his regime in 2003 or the removal of Marx/Lenin Statues in Eastern Europe in 1991. What is the the difference?•The criteria for a community to remove a statue in a healthy way•How we judge those of the past and determine that some character flaws are due to their times of birth, while other character flaws are universally condemnable – Essentially, what makes a slave-owning Jefferson a product of his time while, say, a Nero, is universally understood as cruel•The dangers of cancelling anyone who doesn't meet our 21st century standards; conversely, the dangers of slavish worship of them?•Who deserves more statues today
