  • What makes you a heretic? Journalist Andrew Gold believes that, in an age of group-think and tribes, we need heretics - those who use unconventional wisdom to speak out against their own groups, from cancelled comedians and radical feminists to cult defectors and vigilantes hunting deviants.

    Learn from my guests how to rebel, think differently and resist social contagion. From Triggernometry's Francis Foster and the world's most cancelled man Graham Linehan to ex-Hasidic Jew Julia Haart and gender critical atheist Richard Dawkins. These are the people living with the weight of their own community's disappointment on their shoulders.

  • Историки идей Тимур Атнашев и Михаил Велижев говорят с гостями о новых ярких книгах — и обо всём, что лежит вокруг их сюжетов

    Философ Александр Пятигорский однажды заметил, что обсуждение книг, может быть, даже важнее, чем их чтение. Именно разговор создает школу мысли, рождает споры, заставляет оттачивать аргументы, искать новые способы понимания. Разговор о книгах — удовольствие и отдельный вид искусства, главная практика европейской культуры, но, помимо этого, еще и терапия — способ сказать и услышать важное о себе и обществе, откликнуться на понимание другого. В этом подкасте редакторы серии «Интеллектуальная история» Тимур Атнашев и Михаил Велижев, а также их гости — исследователи, авторы и увлеченные читатели — занимаются именно этим: обсуждают книги и рассказывают, как формируются идеи, овладевающие умами людей.

    Ведущие подкаста — PhD, историки и редакторы серии «Интеллектуальная история» издательства «НЛО» Тимур Атнашев и Михаил Велижев.

  • "Родина слонов" - финалист премии "За верность науке" 2017 и 2018 гг. в номинации "Лучшая радиопрограмма о науке". "Родина слонов" - это авторская программа Михаила Родина, выходящая на радио "Говорит Москва" каждую субботу и воскресенье в 13:00. Вместе с гостями мы развенчиваем исторические мифы, рассказываем о фактах, давно очевидных для учёных, но по разным причинам неизвестных обывателю.

    Мы уже забыли, что история - это не только интересная, но ещё и достаточно строгая наука, дело больших профессионалов. Это наука, подкреплённая физическими, химическими и математическими методами, а не шуточками и измышлениями профанов. Причём, многие недавние открытия историков поражают воображение. Но, как и в любой серьёзной науке, они не разрушают картину мира, а дополняют её.
    В нашей студии профессионалы расскажут именно о таких исследованиях. О тех удивительных знаниях, которые учёные получили в последние годы, месяцы и даже дни.

    In jeder Folge behandeln wir wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Themen sowohl theoretisch, als auch tagesaktuell, aber immer mit Humor um das Verständnis für diese Themen zu erweitern.

  • Why flowers? Why do they exist, how do we live around them, thanks to them, or with them? In the fields, in florists' stores or in the intimacy of our homes, flowers bridge the gap between our urban world and nature, and give rise to poetry and respect for all living things. 


    In the Kenzo Parfums "Flowers" podcast, we meet the actors and actresses of the flower world. Each in their own field, they work to build an imaginary flower that is as realistic as it is poetic, and to inspire the respect that flowers deserve. We discover their work, in France and abroad, with Masami-Charlotte Lavault, a committed flower grower, Flower by Kenzo ambassador since 2022 and founder of 'Plein air', a flower farm in the heart of Paris.
