The Forest 404 Podcast and Experiment – get involved

Stressed or tired after a long day? Listening to nature might help you feel better. Take part in a ten minute experiment to help researchers understand how people respond to the sounds of the natural world.

The Forest 404 Experiment explores how people respond to the sounds of nature.

It’s linked to BBC Radio 4’s new podcast Forest 404, set in a not-too-distant future after a data crash.

The drama’s main character, Pan, works in a data library where she archives audio recordings from the 21st century. One day she stumbles upon a recording of a rainforest and begins a quest to understand its origin and meaning.

The experiment explores Pan’s emotions in more detail, and discover how people from different backgrounds respond to sounds of nature. For more information on how to take part go to https://nquire.org.uk/mission/forest-experiment/contribute

The Forest 404 Experiment is a research partnership between BBC Radio 4, the BBC Natural History Unit, the University of Bristol, the Open University and the University of Exeter.

Evolving Digital Self Podcast: Dr. Sue Thomas, Digital Wellbeing

I love it when people contact me and begin a conversation. Sometimes the discussion goes on quietly behind the scenes for days, months or even years.  At other times it results in an article or interview. This podcast is one example.

It started with an email from Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste inviting me to be a guest on her podcast series Evolving Digital Self.  The result was a fascinating conversation where we discovered we shared many similar ideas about the challenges and opportunities of digital life. Heidi, who is based in San Francisco, is doing a great job consulting and writing on the way we tackle these issues.

The Biophilia Hypothesis – podcast from Stuff to Blow Your Mind @BLOWtheMIND

A quirky and complicated discussion of biophilia – what it is, why it is, and how it matters. Set aside an hour to just go with the flow as Robert Lamb and John McCormick roam the savannas of biophilic theory. Very enjoyable.
