Here's why we're entering the Golden Age of Podcasts

Interesting read about the trends in podcasting, and what Spotify's acquisition of Gimlet Media might mean for the industry.

Was listening to the excellent podcast series about computing in 1968, called "1968: When the World Began" by Nextbillionseconds which Paul shared not so long ago. I was pretty sure I had never heard about Mark Pesce until I got to episode 4 in the series, and Mark shares that he's a co-inventor of VRML (

Last time I came across VRML was in 2003 while working on my masters degree, where I used it to visualise scenes from an interactive film. I had never heard about VRML before back then, and I never heard about it since. Took me by surprise, I was not expecting to ever hear about it again either (:

Fantastic podcast series btw, 4 great episodes, highly recommend it (

BBC Radio 4 - The Long Walk

In 1956, a Polish officer called Slavomir Rawicz caused a sensation with "The Long Walk," his account of a his dramatic escape from the Soviet Gulag and a 4000-mile trek on foot to India. The book was a bestseller and has remained in print for over half a century. Rawicz describes how he his fellow escapees slogged across the Siberian tundra, traversed the Gobi Desert and scaled the Himalayas. Along the way they faced hunger, exhaustion, disease and even a couple of yetis. A thrilling story: but was it true? Many have doubted whether this extraordinary tale can really have happened.
