    Swamps Features and Creatures | Word Power

    Swamps Features and Creatures | Word Power

    There might be very few horror stories that did not employ the swamp as part of its creepy setting in one way or another. Swamps have been infamous for hosting dangerous, and according to most accounts in fiction, evil creatures, so people would usually get the chills whenever they pass by a swamp, or even worse, if they have to spend the night in a swamp. How much of that is true, and how much of it is pure fiction? Well, this is what we are going to talk about in today’s episode, Swamps Features and Creatures.

    Shocking Events That Made History Episode 4

    Shocking Events That Made History Episode 4

    Art, entertainment, sports; these forms of expression are among humanity’s greatest prides, and yet none of it comes easily: Artists are blasted for their work, Journalists’ integrity scrutinized, athletes under pressure to perform. Values are repeatedly tested. But the following spectacles — from a tanked Broadway show to racy portraiture to an epic baseball scandal — also remind thinkers, creators, and performers that, sometimes, disaster is just part of the process. 
    Welcome to Shocking Events That Made History series. This is your host Danny and this is episode 3 from the series, in which we will talk about cultural breakdowns.

    An Essential Guide to Your Body and Brain Series | Episode 2 | The Learning Brain

    The brain should need no introduction. After all, the brain is what makes you you. But it’s a paradox that the organ that lets you understand the world understands so little about itself. Now, thanks to stunning research building upon decades, or maybe centuries, of investigation, science is peeling away the layers of mystery to reveal how three pounds of flesh create an entire universe inside your head. This is a new episode from An Essential Guide to Your Body and Brain and in this episode, we will talk about the learning brain.

    Great Mysteries Series | Episode 2

    Great Mysteries Series | Episode 2

    We keep wondering about many things happening around us or things that happened in the past and even things that will happen in the future and we find in most cases that we have no clue or we have a vague explanation at best, but that’s ok because these things keep driving us to learn more, trying to understand the mysteries all around us and that’s what makes us humans after all. In today’s episode of our Great Mysteries series, we will explore some of these questions. What is hidden in the emperors’ tomb besides the terra cotta army we can see? Where is Genghis Khan’s tomb? Was Machu Picchu a sacred site? Where is the Holy Grail? Can science find the source of consciousness? Why do we yawn? What’s the point of laughter? What is dark matter? What triggers an earthquake? Will we ever find Amelia Earhart? What happened to the Neanderthals? And finally, how will the universe end? These questions will be our quest in today’s new episode from our Great Mysteries series, presented to you by your host, Danny, and English Plus Podcast. Enjoy.
