THIS IS A VIRTUAL MEETING

Do you enjoy listening to podcasts, but don’t have anyone to discuss them with?  Do you like the idea of a book club, but can’t commit to finishing the book each month?  Join the University Branch Podcast Club to engage in conversation about podcasts on a variety of topics.  Each month we’ll have a topic and a short list of podcast episodes to listen to.  At the meeting we will discuss those episodes and the themes within them.

This meeting will be held online via WebEx.  You must register for this program to receive an email invite with the link to the meeting.

The topic for February's meeting is Flower Power!  We’ll be discussing the following podcast episodes:

  • "Inside the World of Wildlife Trafficking (part two)", from the Science Weekly podcast, 22 minutes

  • "Texas Wildflowers", from the Come and Take It podcast, 21 m

  • "How Do Flowers Know When to Bloom?", from the CrowdScience podcast, 32 minutes

  • "Floriography: The Victorian Language of Flowers", from the Dressed: The History of Fashion podcast, 45 minutes

  • "Were Tulips Really the Bitcoin of the 1600s?", from the Ridiculous History podcast, 37 minutes

  • "The Hidden Costs of Valentine's Day Flowers", from the Stuff Mom Never Told You podcast, 45 minutes
