TLP #9 : Telling compelling stories - Magdalena Skipper
*Subscribe and receive the next podcast in you mailbox* *Tell us your thoughts  **about this episode *Last summer, we were honored to host Magdalena Skipper, Editor of Nature, to share her tips with the community. When Nature announced its new Open Access policy in November 2020, we asked her to come back for another interview in January 2021, to discuss these specific issues. This episode is in two parts: the classic interview with Magdalena sharing her stories with the community and a second part with an extended discussion on the recent announcements made by Nature. As a consequence, this episode is longer than usual, but we believe that it includes  enriched content that you will appreciate. *In this episode Magdalena Skipper tell us about her role at Nature and her personal thoughts about editing, publishing and communicating science* * Magdalena offers tips to authors, including thinking about why you want to share your story, what the message of the paper is and who the audience is * We discuss a metaphor for the publishing process in which the author feels like a Medieval knight throwing the manuscript over the castle wall * Magdalena sees herself more as a facilitator and reminds us that every stakeholder in the process is human * She stresses that editors and publishers need to work to make the publishing process more transparent * She makes the point that the objective of peer review is to make the paper better and we talk about new models for publishing and sharing data * We discuss how impact factors can be mis-used and what alternative metrics exist * Magdalena tells us how she feels as the first woman editor at Nature and about prizes for women scientists.  *She mentions these journals and institutions :* * MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology * Cancer Research UK * Nature journal * Nature Research *    **Mentoring in Science Award** * *To find out more about Magdalena and her journal* * Nature editors * 150 years of Nature: A century and a half of research and discovery. * Magdalena on Wikipedia * Magdalena on Twitter * To find out more about Renaud :* * Twitter * LinkedIn * To find out more about Jonathan :* * Twitter * LinkedIn  *To learn more about the soundtrack : *Music by Amaria - Lovely Swindler https://soundcloud.com/amariamusique/ https://twitter.com/amariamusique And Bab Tista - Text Me Records / GrandBankss

How to buy property in Spain
Planning to buy a property in Spain? Maybe it's a future ambition to own your dream Spanish home. Whatever the case, this episode will give you a detailed insight into buying a house or apartment in Spain and is packed with practical advice on buying in Spain. It's a meaty subject so I decided to enlist Spanish property consultant Felix Joseph who shares his expert advice. Felix runs his own property consultancy on the Costa del Sol called Property Under One Roof. He's also written a book called How to Buy a Property in Spain: everything they wont tell you about buying a property in Spain. Felix first caught the property bug at a young age when his father unfurled the plans for a house he was going to buy in his native Caribbean. Felix studied an economics degree and then worked in IT for 15 years before investing in property in the UK and building up his own property portfolio which allowed him to semi-retire to Spain with his family. In 2002 he left IT to set up his real estate company ‘Property Under One Roof’ and then moved to Spain in 2006 and pivoted into property consultancy where he offers a wholistic service for people from outside Spain looking to buy. In the this episode we look at: The paperwork you need to get in order in order to be ready to buy property in Spain, such as a fiscal ID number (NIE)  Whether now is a good time to buy property in Spain or not in light of the situation with Covid 19 and for British citizens, Brexit.  The costs associated with buying property in Spain. The property purchasing process in Spain and legal issues involved.  Mortgages and financing options for buying property in Spain.  The Golden Visa How to find a property in Spain Taxes Sage advice and what pitfalls to watch out for when buying property in Spain. Plus a few questions that When in Spain listeners sent in.

A Black Utopia In North Carolina
“I thought I'd come to paradise,” said Jane Ball Groom upon arriving in Soul City, North Carolina. It wasn’t amenities or location that made Soul City paradise, but the promise of what it could be: a city built by Black people, for Black people. Our guests take us back to 1969 when the city was founded and built from (below) the ground up — and while the city itself was short-lived, we’ll see how the seeds it sowed laid roots for spaces that celebrate and center Black culture today. That's a wrap on the season! Share you stand out moments with host Saleem Reshamwala on Twitter (@Kidethic). For photos from the episode and more on the history of Soul City, head to the Souvenir Book of Soul City in the North Carolina digital collections. Special thanks to Shirlette Ammons who we could not do this story without, and our guests Charmaine McKissick-Melton, Jane Ball-Groom, Lianndra Davis, Lou Myers, Tobias Rose, and Derrick Beasley.

*Preview* — 76.5 — Robert Moses Bonus Episode
This is a preview from our latest Patreon Bonus Episode – subscribe to our Patreon for just $3 a month to listen to the whole episode! Thank you to everyone who supported the show this year, we couldn't have done it without you, and we can't wait to discuss more architectural history in 2021. Our final episode for 2020 is here and our last episode on Jane Jacobs. We're discussing Robert Moses, the megalomaniacal titan of New York planning who wielded enormous political power and bent the metropolis to his will, orchestrating a symphony of demolitions, highways, expressways and grands projets which changed the face of the city forever. 'You can draw any kind of picture you want on a clean slate and indulge your every whim in the wilderness in laying out a New Delhi, Canberra, or Brasilia, but when you operate in an overbuilt metropolis, you have to hack your way with a meat ax.' He was also a spiteful bully, a racist, an egomaniac and a very difficult man, yet he maintained his authority and his power for almost 3 decades before a precipitous fall in the 1960s, when public and political opinion turned against him for good. He embodied everything that Jane Jacobs despised about urban planning, but his life and work have much to tell us about the mid-century city. Edited by Matthew Lloyd Roberts.

Making Sense of That Voice Inside Your Head & How to Create Great Meetings
I’m sure you’ve seen construction crews sandblasting. Next time you see that - run!. This episode begins with a discussion on the problem with being around sandblasting. And it is a serious problem. Source: Dr. Paul Blanc author of “How Everyday Products Make People Sick” (https://amzn.to/3iug5Me) You know that voice inside your head? It tells you all kinds of things both good and bad. It can be a coach or a critic. Where does that voice come from? How can you use that voice to help steer your life in a positive direction? Joining me to discuss this is award-winning psychologist Ethan Kross. He’s a professor at the University of Michigan and author of the book Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It (https://amzn.to/38XXEwa) Meetings are often described as a “necessary evil” at work. A lot of us dread them because they often don’t seem to accomplish much and waste a lot of time. But maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s certainly the view of my guest Mamie Kanfer Stewart. She is founder of a company called Meeteor (www.meeteor.com) which helps companies improve the quality of meetings and she is co author of the book Momentum: Creating Effective, Engaging and Enjoyable Meetings (https://amzn.to/2XXL2yT). Listen as she offers some great strategies to make your meeting more productive and engaging. When was the last time you checked your tires? Your tires can lose about half their pressure before they even start to look flat. Having underinflated tires can cause all kinds of problems and cost a lot of money. Listen as I explain how often you should check and how much air to put in them.
