Kim Hill talks to author, Helen O’Neill, of a book on Florence Broadhurst. I found it a great podcast and am delighted so much of Radio NZ is being podcasted. Posting this one here because I really do like the wallpaper she designed, and want to slap a strip of it up from
Radio New Zealand – Saturday, 15 July:
9.05am Interview: John Brockman Literary agent and founder of online salon The Edge Foundation (www.edge.org) to bring together people working at the edge of a broad range of scientific and technical fields. He is the editor of: ‘What We Believe But Cannot Prove: Today’s Leading Thinkers on Science in the Age of Certainty’ (ISBN 0060841818), ‘Curious Minds: How a Child Becomes a Scientist’ (ISBN 0-375-42291-9), and many other books.
I don’t know how long the podcast will be up there for. Forever I hope, but I listened to it later via mp3 player – which is agreat thing to be able to do! I found it interesting, always one to enjoy the reminiscences of a boomer in the 60’s. Disturbing too… such interesting people and stories and ideas but with is a strange scientism in the mix, he sides with Dawkins not Gould, there is a glowing link to Denis Dutton at the end, who maligns psychotherapy with his zealous cult like devotion to skepticism.
More on Brockman here by Bruce Stirling (Interesting that I just said he is interesting):
Wired 7.09: Agent Provocateur:
“You’re not interesting?” “Not not-interesting!” he snaps. “Post-interesting! Interesting doesn’t pay. Well, it pays once, but not twice. I used to be interesting. I was, like, the It Boy. Being so interesting – well, it’s not so interesting.”
Then and Now:
Odeo: Psyche, Soul, Unconscious I
First of a few audio posts on the unconscious.
My third psyberspace podcast
Psychotherapy & Counselling – the difference – registration of Psychotherapy as a profession in New Zealand
There is no simple way of saying that someone is doing a psychotherapy in the way we could say they have done an analysis. Psychotherapy as a project!
I also ask the question of how all this might apply or not to psychotherapy online.
Here is another Audio (9.56 min):
Audio Blog post – at Odeo
Thanks Dan for your response.
Maybe my reticence is not for professional reasons … a defence – See Freud's list here on Wikipedia
What are defenses about & for?
What about James Hillman's Acorn Theory
Whatever I am defended about there is also a need to find a way through some genuine difficulties.
Sukie Colegrave – By Way of Pain
Sukie Colegrave – Uniting Heaven & Earth
Sub to Psyberspace, the Podcast:
Playing around with Odio. The audio snip in the last post in now in a new RSS feed called Psyberspace. Who knows what will come of it all. I have done this before, early in 2005 but it is easier now! Also it may be that I can find my voice in that sphere where cyber and psyche meet. It may be that it will sit well with my professional life.
Five minutes of Audio.
Audio Blog post – at Odeo
Some audio about finding my writer's, my blogger's voice. And the "show notes" follow"
My envy of Dan's voice: http://dan.randow.net.nz/
Ref to a books I mention: …. Can't find "I had the Time" maybe it does not exist!
Yalom, Orbach, though these are not good examples as they are professional books. Exposing for all that.
Some talk about pseudonyms.
Reference to Identity blogging & naked blogging
In podcasting the “soundseeing tour” genre was coined in about 2005 and this project takes that to a whole new level. I am downloading to have a listen, even though I won’t be driving Interstate 5 for a while (it is a long way from New Zealand). My connetion is with Amy who is one of the creators, great to see this project online Amy!
The Conversations Network
And this is the thing that got me blogging, a new site from Doug Kaye – I love IT Conversations but there is not enough non-IT that I like to listen to, this might just do it! So I have it in my RSS feed and look forward to some good stuff.
