Overheard at National Geographic

Overheard at National Geographic
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/podcasts/overheard

Readers interested in getting an inside peek into the research behind some of National Geographic’s explorations may enjoy their podcast Overheard. Launched in June 2019 and currently in its second season, this podcast features engaging stories from “the explorers, photographers and scientists at the edges of our big, bizarre, and beautiful world.” For example, in “Cave of the Jaguar God,” Guillermo de Anda, an archaeologist and researcher with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, shares what it was like to enter an extraordinary cave used by the Maya that had been untouched for centuries. Another episode, “March of the Beaver,” takes listeners to the Alaskan tundra, where beavers are playing a surprising role in the northward shift of larger species as climate change warms the Arctic, while “The Aquarius Project,” in which an actor leads group of high school students in searching for a meteorite at the bottom of Lake Michigan, demonstrates that sometimes all science needs is determination and tenacity. Episodes are generally 15-25 minutes long and each episode’s page includes transcripts, as well as beautiful photographs. In addition to streaming Overheard online at the link above, interested readers can find it on their favorite podcast app. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Pew Report: In Emerging Economies, Smartphone and Social Media Users Have Broader Social Networks

Pew Report: In Emerging Economies, Smartphone and Social Media Users Have Broader Social Networks
https://www.pewinternet.org/2019/08/22/in-emerging-economies-smartphone-and-social-media-users-have-broader-social-networks

“Are smartphones and social media changing social interactions in emerging economies, or are people simply talking to the same people online that they once talked to offline?” This is the question examined by the Pew Research Center in this report published in August 2019. The report is based on data gathered via surveys and focus groups conducted in 2018 with adult participants in 11 countries. Chosen to represent emerging economies across four global regions, these countries include Lebanon, Vietnam, Colombia, and Kenya. Among the study’s major findings, smartphone and social media users in these emerging economies tend to be more likely to interact regularly with people who are different from them in key demographic areas such as religion, income level, political party, and race or ethnicity. In addition to social activities, the report also delves into trends in other ways participants use mobile phones, such as looking up health information or applying to jobs. Those interested can read the full report online or download it as a 35-page PDF at the link above, where they will also find the report’s topline questionnaire results. This report was written by Laura Silver and Christine Huang with additional analysis by Kyle Taylor. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
