    First in a new series, Find Good Things, where we interview a certain type of person that there isn't an accepted name for yet: someone with excellent taste who finds good things in a particular area of life (art, wine, podcasts, potato peelers....) and recommends them to a broad audience. Today, Browser Publisher Uri Bram interviews Browser Editor Robert Cottrell about how he reads and recommends writing of lasting value.

    A Better Place

    A Better Place

    "It's fundamentally altered my perception of what people are like. "
    Co-founder of Future Crunch, political economist Dr Angus Hervey scours the web for good news every day. He says the world is becoming a better place. But, most people never get to read about it. 
    "Most people are fundamentally good... In general, humanity is moving in the right direction."
    This interview is based on his piece 99 Good News Stories You Probably Didn’t Hear About in 2018.

    Our Messy Origins

    Our Messy Origins

    "We are human, not because of what makes human, we are human because we are. We recognize other humans." 
    Professor Sang-Hee Lee is an explorer, of sorts. She's a biological anthropologist at the University of California, where she specializes in advancing our knowledge of human evolution. She trained in Korea, the US, and Japan, and is a professor of anthropology at the University of California.
    This conversation is based on Lee's piece in Anthropology News - which featured in The Browser. 
    "Our loneliness drives us to be narcissistic. Isn’t that the most widely accepted argument that we are fundamentally alone?"

    Frontier Reporting

    Frontier Reporting

    Maya Rao lived on the oil fields of North Dakota for a year, writing about America's modern day gold rush. She worked behind a cash register at a truck stop, meeting 'outsiders, outcasts and hustlers'.
     
    In this interview, Maya talks about the transient life of fortune-seeking men, their sense of adventure and risk-taking behaviour. Alongside the oil wells, she also found a culture of toxic masculinity bubbling to the surface.
     
    This episode is based Maya Rao's piece, Outsiders, Outcasts, Hustlers: A Year Reporting on the Modern-Day Frontier. Her book "Great American Outpost: Dreamers, Mavericks, and the Making of an Oil Frontier" was published in April 2018.

    Sentinel Island

    Sentinel Island

    When an American died on a mysterious island, it threw a spotilght on an unknown group of people. Sentinel Island, about the size of Manhattan, lies in the Bay of Bengal. It's home to a pre-neolithic tribe who have occupied the area for more than 30,000 years - and they kill nearly everyone that approaches. In this episode, we talk to a reporter in India who tells us why they're so hostile to foreigners. 
    This story is based on Lhendup G Bhutia's story in Open Magazine: 
    The Sentinelese: The Death of a Missionary and the Lost Tribe of the Andamans
