Last month I wrote about the news that DeepRoot was starting a podcast called “Remarkable Objects” about the intersection of nature and urban design. Today, I’m thrilled to to share that our trailer is out.
The trailer will give you a sense of the range of guests we’ll have in our first season – our first episode will launch in October. You can subscribe on SoundCloud or iTunes, and follow us on Twitter for extra audio clips and exclusive content. If you really want to do us a solid, leave us a review or a rating! It’ll help us reach a larger audience, and we’d really appreciate it.
A lot of people have asked me about the name. Why “Remarkable Objects”? There are two reasons.
The first is easy: trees, plants, soil, and water are all amazing elements of the natural world. Plants transform sunlight into energy, make people calmer and happier, clean our air and water, and provide food to living things (including us). Soil is teeming with billions of microorganisms, an entire universe of life that we actually know very little about. Water is the essential source of life.
An “object” isn’t just a thing, though. It’s also a goal – the object of Blackjack is to get 21. The object of a newspaper is to report on significant events. And the object of our guests, and the projects they work on, is to influence the way we think about, design, and build the urban environment. Remarkable indeed.
The DeepRoot blog will continue to publish articles every Monday, as always. Once podcast episodes start airing, however, we’ll also publish them here as a supplemental post on every other Thursday for the course of the eight-episode season. The episode posts will include embedded audio players, as well as transcripts for those who wish to follow along more closely.
Thanks for listening and for your support.
