This season on Far Flung with Saleem Reshamwala, we journey across the globe to bring you incredible, unique and imaginative stories— from the unbelievable suspended bridges that connect Nepal, to hidden underground tapes that capture the culture of Somalia, to a museum that stores and exhibits… wind!? Get to know new amazing places and the ideas that flow from them–and pick up that awe-inspired, travel-bug-feeling with just your headphones.

    Conversations with People Who Hate Me

    Conversations with People Who Hate Me

    On the internet, nobody seems to remember you’re a real person. That’s especially true for Michael James Schneider, an artist whose work you’ve probably seen online. Commonly referred to as “Balloon Guy”, Michael uses mylar balloons to spell out pithy phrases he then posts on the internet– and people both love and hate him for it. In fact, it can seem like Michael’s haters outweigh the fans, at least online. In this episode, listen as Michael explores what could possibly be behind all the anonymous trolling that has turned him into one of Twitter’s “main characters”, and how anonymity affects the kinds of conversations we can have with one another. This is an episode of “Conversations With People Who Hate Me”, another podcast from the TED Audio Collective, hosted by Dylan Marron. Listen to more wherever you’re listening to this.

Great bones

I love some of these episodes!! This show has a great foundation and great bones and if they stick with it, it could be quite bingeable and something I keep in my wheelhouse for a long time to come

Love this show but...

The ghost writer episode was very hard to listen to. The host’s opinion is clear and completely understandable, given that she identifies as a professional writer and poet.

I would wonder how a non-writer, non-poet, average person would feel about this topic. I for one (as a regular person) would fall on the side of indifference, and was a little unsettled at the hosts passionate vehemence toward the story’s subject.
The host shouldn’t be such an integral part of the show, maybe a guest host would have been a good idea for this particular episode.

The episodes are usually, (for lack of a better word) deeper than this. I hope Sarah Kay doesn’t inject herself, her bias, and her opinion so completely into the topic. Please just host the show, don’t let the show become about you. I think all of the other episodes have been great, and even moving at times.

Thank you.

Hard to follow

I loved the idea of this podcast, and tried listening to 4 episodes, because I really wanted to like it! But the transitions from the intro, middle of the show, and the end seemed really awkward, and making it hard to follow.
