Work In Progress

Hey guys, my name is Ky and I’m the brains of this little operation (ie, the writer, editor, and narrator). 

Good Evening Wonderland is still a work in progress, and honestly I’m using this post to test the theme. Scripts are being written, voice actors are still needed for some characters, and background music is also needed. Currently all music is coming from freesound.org but if you have something for me, just leave a message. That goes for everything else, as well. If you have questions about being a guest actor, suggestions for the script, and other things along those line, just message this blog and we’ll talk.

Thanks guys <3 (more information can be found in the About page)

H*40: Abuse and How Its Various Forms Are Normalized

For this week’s podcast we’re talking about abuse and how its various forms are normalized in society. From the fact that counseling and psychiatry have racist/sexist/ableist views baked in the cake to gaslighting; abusive behavior is normalized and very often marginalized people are the ones who bear the brunt. We also address signs of abuse in relationships, and in the context of family life as well.

The Cold War is over. Cuba’s government is communist, but so are the governments of China and Vietnam, both of which have deep ties to the U.S. The 11 million people of Cuba, as well as all of us here, deserve an open connection as neighbors, based on equality, grounded in peace.

Oxford Dictionary of National Biography podcast: Alan Turing, mathematician and computer scientist

Turing’s progress seemed assured: a distinguished degree in 1934 was followed by a fellowship of King’s in 1935 and a Smith’s prize in 1936 for work on probability theory, and he might then have seemed on course for a successful career as a mildly eccentric King’s don engaged in pure mathematics; but his uniqueness of mind drove him in a direction none could have foreseen. By 1933 he had introduced himself to Russell and Whitehead’s Principia mathematica and so to the arcane area of mathematical logic. However, many questions had by then been raised about how truth could be captured by formalism. K. Gödel had shattered Russell’s picture by showing the existence of true statements about numbers which could not be proved by the formal application of rules of deduction. In 1935 the topologist M. H. A. Newman introduced Turing to a question which still lay open: the question of decidability, the Entscheidungsproblem. Did there exist a definite method or process by which all mathematical questions could be decided?

The story of Alan Turing is one of over 200 episodes available from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography’s podcast archive. New episodes are released every second Wednesday.
