E10 The stories we tell // With wandering host Ingrid M. Rieser

Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! How do we start to make sense of one of the most turbulent, transformative and chaotic years in recent history? We’re always telling – and listening to – stories in order to make sense of the world around us. In this episode we explore how those narratives take shape and evolve over time, with the help of a journey to Ukraine. We also ask how we become better navigators in our ever-changing and messy world of ideas.

This is a reflective session with wandering host Ingrid Rieser, providing a retrospective end to the first of season of the Forest of Thought.

    Thank you for your kind thoughts and beautiful thoughts. I love your gentle, steady voice. Excellent collection of links to various voices and thoughts including the Book of Hours. “Making sense of history is a bit tricky.” is quite a statement to unpack. We’re also trying to make sense of ecological history that is expressing itself drop by drop and species death by death. Your Ukrainian travels and reflections mirror this history too. Amazing.
