16 min

Jeff and Spencer are father-and-son bandmates in Tweedy, and musical collaborators across other projects, too. Jeff is the lead singer and songwriter of the band Wilco, so music would have always been a part of their family’s life, but making music together has been the way the two of them have connected since Spencer was a very young kid.

You can find their music at, and find them on Twitter at @jefftweedy and @spencertweedy.

E-Squared with Pam Grout - Ep 026
The phrase “at the end of the tunnel” can be reminiscent of death. While this podcast isn’t about death itself, it often addresses the death of the part of ourselves that believes we don't have what we need in order to pursue our passion, our purpose, or our calling in life. It's a rebirth of what's truly important, which is saying yes to whatever is in our hearts. These conversations are about real people, with real obligations and real obstacles, that have somehow found the courage to say yes to what was in their heart. As a result, they found themselves on quite the adventure! This week's guest could be the poster child for that paradigm. Her name is Pam Grout, and she's a New York Times bestselling author, a travel blogger who has visited every continent except for Antarctica, and a student of A Course in Miracles. In this episode, Pam talks candidly about the loss of her daughter, the little rituals they shared, and how she has coped with the grief of her daughter’s passing. She shares the wisdom that she's gleaned from her adventures and from the rocky parts of her journey as well, because, even for those who know full well that we co-create our reality, life is still going to test us. Pam also describes her writing journey, the process of writing her bestseller, E-Squared, and her advice for those looking to write spiritual guidance books. Pam’s definition of success, after everything she has been through and after writing 20 books, is to see the face of God in every person she meets, and her whole story is incredibly inspiring, so make sure to tune in today! *Key Points From This Episode:* * Pam’s favorite activity as a child was going to the library and reading. * Listeners hear a bit more about Pam’s childhood, growing up in Kansas. * If she wanted to achieve her dreams, Pam realized she had to come up with creative capital. * Why Pam believes she always saw herself becoming a writer, even as a teenager. * Pam’s first job at a newspaper and why she doesn’t consider herself a corporate person. * What it meant to Pam to become a New York Times best-selling author. * Choosing experiences over material things and becoming a travel writer in her 20s. * Finding her spiritual foundation in a loving, benevolent force and learning to trust in it. * Hearing God’s voice, questioning the source, and studying A Course in Miracles (ACIM). * Pam provides a synopsis of what ACIM is and how it helped her choose a different path. * How a psychic reading predicted her pregnancy and how Pam chose to see things differently. * The affirmation or appeal to the universe Pam repeated when her daughter was a baby. * Self-publishing Jumpstart Your Metabolism – why Pam decided to write that book. *Links Mentioned in Today’s Episode:* Pam Grout on Twitter Pam Grout on LinkedIn Pam Grout on Facebook Pam Grout A Course in Miracles God Doesn’t Have Bad Hair Days Taz Grout’s 222 Foundation E-Cubed Light Watkins

David Bailey on a Life of ‘Looking Again’
The acclaimed photographer talks to Tim Blanks about his new autobiography and extraordinary career. LONDON, United Kingdom — David Bailey has authored dozens of books, but “Look Again” is his first autobiography. As the title suggests, the photographer is less interested in reminiscing about the past, and more keen on pushing himself and others to look beyond first impressions. The memoir delves into Bailey’s past and includes sometimes-scathing accounts of his relationships with heavyweights in the world of fashion, media, show business and politics — though he maintains he told the stories “in the nicest possible way.” “Being a photographer, you have to know how to deal with anyone, from the bloke on the [street] corner to the Queen, so you have to behave,” he said. Speaking in conversation with BoF Editor-at-Large Tim Blanks, the famed photographer shares anecdotes from his storied and colourful past. * Since he first burst onto the scene in 1960, photography has drastically changed alongside technology. “iPhones killed photography in a way, because everyone can take a picture,” he said, adding, “it’s made it into a kind of folk art,” which has its merits. * As Blanks notes, Bailey lost interest in fashion photography for a while in the 1970s, a period Bailey blames on his dislike of some editors and the grind of the fashion cycle. It was “another frock and another frock and another girl and another girl.” It took the emergence of Kate Moss — alongside ‘60s supermodel Jean Shrimpton one of Bailey’s top muses — to excite him again. “They’re both exceptional,… important people, much more important than people think.” * While Bailey is not one for nostalgia, he can pinpoint one photograph that defines an era — and himself as a photographer. “I’ve got one picture that I feel sums up everything: [British actor] Michael Caine with an unlit cigarette,” he said. “I feel it sums up the ‘60s for me. Not a miniskirt but a close-up of Michael Caine.” Related Articles: David Bailey Turns Editor for Citizens of Humanity 100 Years of British Vogue Will Covid-19 Change Fashion Photography?

Stop the postdoc treadmill … I want to get off
Julie Gould investigates how brain drains and demographic time bombs are forcing some countries to rethink the postdoc. The problems facing postdocs who are more than ready for life as an independent researcher are well documented. A lack of faculty positions forces many to spend years moving from one temporary contract to another, often internationally. But moving abroad can rob many countries of talented researchers, particularly if they leave for good, says Melody Mentz-Coetzee, a senior researcher at the University of Pretoria’s centre for the advancement of scholarship in South Africa. Her country faces exactly this problem — a situation she dates back to the late 1970s and early 1990s. “At this point, we started to see a lot of talented researchers being trained abroad, and many of those never returned home: the so-called brain drain in Africa,” Mentz-Coetzee tells Gould. “Many institutions face a severe shortage of highly qualified staff, many of whom are older, close to retirement. So you do have this kind of a ‘missing middle’.” Mentz-Coetzee describes an initiative across ten Carnegie-funded postdoc fellowship programmes on the African continent to help tackle the problem. Shambhavi Naik, a former postdoc who turned to journalism and is now a research fellow at the Takshashila Institution’s technology and policy programme in Bengaluru, explores why talented graduate students who opted to develop their careers in India, rather than move abroad, are overlooked for faculty positions. Their motivation to stay at home is a wake-up call for science in India, she argues. And Shirley Tilghman, emeritus professor of molecular biology and public affairs at Princeton University in New Jersey, says the problem is a cultural one, and could be addressed by the development of staff-scientist roles to oversee technological change in the scientific enterprise. “It’s about changing the mindset of each individual principal investigator, who kind of wants to circle the wagons and say, ‘Don't mess with my stuff’. And that’s the culture we have to change,” she says.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
