Diversified range of speakers

I particularly enjoy listening to the episodes of Night White Skies because each of these episodes present me an opportunity to think and explore in an innovative way. Last night I was listening to the episode 'Geostories' from Rania and El Hadi- it was fascinating to hear how their practice is working on revising the existing canons of urban design and urban planning by pushing the boundary of architect's responsibilities towards the Earth and its resources. I find Design Earth's drawings to be very thought-provoking, and I wished if this podcast could cover more discussions about their drawing media and initial thoughts behind their creation. But overall, this podcast is a great initiative towards highlighting transdisciplinary perspectives to ongoing architectural discourses.

How Emotions Are Made

I really enjoyed hearing about how interactions as a child form connections in the brain that inform how you behave and feel as an adult; it reminded me of the concept nature vs nature.

Night white skies episode 065

What makes Night white Skies so intriguing for me is its ability to emphasize just how far reaching and interdisciplinary the field of architecture really is. In this specific episode, episode 065, Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett was interviewed about her research into facial responses and emotion. The entire episode is a discussion between Sean Lally, the host, and Dr Feldman. The implications of Dr Feldmans research, how facial response is not like a fingerprint rather it's a dynamic response amongst all individuals and the response can have different emotional implications, on how we experience the built environment is rather profound. This podcast itself is rather sterile however, which to me is sometimes a positive. Besides the intro and conclusion there is no “fluff” in terms of audio effects. However, due to the interdisciplinary reach, this is an episode that would be found interesting to those in a variety of professions.
