A Simple Herstory

  • Publisher: The Muse Project
  • Total Episodes: 2

A Simple Herstory – produced by The Muse Project and The Tank – is a new podcast series about all the women who have run for President of the United States. Over a hundred women have made a run for it, but their stories are rarely heard. This podcast series features the lives of the women who aggressively, voraciously, and passionately sought to assume the highest office in the land – and lost. Part experimental radio play – it will feature an all woman cast and it will be written, directed, & designed by notable American theater talent. Executed with a commitment to structural narrative deviations, the series bends our expectations, not just of content, but of form. The first season is about the first woman to make a bid for the presidency – Victoria Woodhull. She ran in 1872, before women had the right to vote. She was a suffragette, a labor advocate, a newspaper publisher, a stock broker, an actress, a con artist, and a spiritualist medium. Jocelyn Kuritsky (The Muse Project), Jonathan A. Goldberg (The Fall of the House of Sunshine), and Donya K. Washington (Oregon Shakespeare Festival) team up to create the series’ inaugural season. The project is a warts and all look at the women, their ambitions, their drives, their ascents, their plummets. From outsiders to insiders, and outsiders again, these are the women who ran. The Muse Project – dedicated to centering the literal and metaphorical voices of women actors, and The Tank – dedicated to championing new ideas and forms of expression, partner for a slice of herstory.

New York City, 2064. From the crowded shores of Hell’s Kitchen Sink to the semi-submerged office towers of TriBeCa Bay, life is a lot like how you remember it: The subway still smells, your job still sucks, and no, that guy you went on a date in the cloud with last week still hasn’t returned your jab. How do we know so much about our not-too-distant future? It’s all thanks to a wormhole in the Gowanus Canal and an experimental NSA program designed to wiretap said wormhole (because hey, it’s what they do). Now that an anonymous whistleblower has started leaking these “wiretaps from tomorrow” you too can find out what the future has in store. There are breaking news alerts, private “captures” from mid-centennials just like you, and even an interactive last will and testament.

Chemistry for the Future: Strange Substances and Structures

  • Publisher: Oxford University
  • Total Episodes: 6

It was here in Oxford, in the 1600s, that great minds such as Hooke, Boyle, Willis and Wren laid the foundations of modern experimental science. Like their famous forebears, today’s Oxford scientists continue to undertake world-leading research: making fundamental new discoveries and applying cutting-edge knowledge to the major societal and technological challenges of the day. The research happening right now in the Department of Chemistry is uniquely poised to have a major impact on everything from our health to our energy sources – in other words, it is enabling our shared future. To read more about our research, please visit http://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/researchthemes.asp. This series focuses on current physical and materials chemists as they explore a range of ‘strange’ materials with unusual properties and functionality. In the future, these materials may revolutionize areas as diverse as friction and energy storage, and inspire the design of new substances with properties we can’t yet imagine.
