We’re excited to announce the launch of our new audio podcast! We know our interviews and roundtables run longer than most Internet videos today. While we think this length is ideal for in-depth probing of extremely important issues, we realize it can difficult to set aside enough time to regularly watch long videos. With our new podcast, you can listen to our content no matter where you are or what you’re doing.
You don’t even need an Internet connection—just download an episode (for free!) while you have a WiFi connection, and then listen to it offline later. If you subscribe to our podcast in iTunes, new episodes will appear in the Podcast app on your phone and in your iTunes library. You also have the option to download the audio podcast from each video conversation page on our website.
The entirety of our foreign policy series, humanities interviews and Uncharted interviews to date have been converted into audio podcasts (and can of course still be viewed as videos). Here’s a summary of the three series that are now available as podcasts:
Reinvent American Foreign Policy
Should we fundamentally reorient how America relates to the rest of the world in an era when most of our biggest challenges are global in nature and planetary in scale ? The Reinvent Foreign Policy Series will ask the questions that frequently don’t get asked among American policymakers and try to propose new kinds of solutions. It will begin with no preconceptions, except that America has made a lot of costly mistakes and needs to learn how to do better.
Reinvent the Humanities to Change the World
Reinvent and Georgetown University are developing a series of high profile conversations about the practical value of the humanities int he world today and tomorrow. So far we have conducted a dozen one-on-one interview with leading scholars, innovators in the private sector, and working practitioners of the humanities and asked them: What is the role of the humanities in creating a sustainable and interconnected future?
Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas
Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas 2015 brought together 40 writers, innovators and pioneers from across disciplines to discuss big ideas in new ways. The festival took place on October 16 and 17 and featured a series of one-on-one onstage conversations that pushed the boundaries of how we conceptualize the major challenges of our time. Reinvent Founder Peter Leyden drove four of the conversations which are part of this package.
We expect to continue to fill out this podcast throughout the coming year. If you like what you hear, be sure to leave us a review!
