The Port Podcast 11: A Journey Through Gender

28 May 2014 For many of us, gender is something that we think of in black and white terms, a binary of male and female. In the womb, we are prescribed gender identities, before the nucleus of our personalities are even formed. But gender is something more than anatomy: it is something more than physicality. It is beyond the simple, limited terms of 'male' and 'female'. What happens when we challenge these judgements placed upon us? What happens when we take a journey into gender, of our own accord, discovering along the way who we really are, rather than who we are told we should be? In this podcast, we meet Jake, Felix and Matt, three trans-people who are undertaking this very journey. We also talk with activity and professor of equality law, Stephen Whittle OBE, about his experience overcoming the UK's discriminatory laws. Produced by Barney Rowntree Production assistance Betty Wood Music Antony & The Johnsons Special thanks to Professor Stephen Whittle OBE, Jake, Matt, Felix and ...

The Port Podcast: 06 – Predicting the Future

The last issue of Port considered the future of the printed magazine, talking to the editors of longstanding publications like the New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair. Magazines are coming to terms today with how print and digital complement each other, but in the online world, is the role of the editor under threat? Do we now live in an algo-world shaped by the intelligence of anonymous processes rather than the emotional decisions of humans? Will algorithms play a role in how we write and consume news? Part One: Kevin Slavin, Assistant Professor and founder of Playful Systems Group at MIT explains how, increasingly, modern life is affected by algorithms and computations that leave no signature on our conscious, and why, some writers are no longer writing with a human reader in mind… Part two: Frederick Fischer, CEO of Tame explains that social media has managed to separate content from the news brands, and how the power has shifted from editors to the developers, changing the...

The Port Podcast 04: Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane

31 July 2013 Prologue: Senior editor Matt Willey introduces this month's podcast on Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane, opened in 1869 on Seneca Lake, New York State. It's mission, to "Treat the chronically insane with gentleness and understanding". Nearly 50'000 patients lived at Willard during its 127 year history and roughly half died there.

The Port Podcast 03: Les Grand Doubleurs

1 June 2013 Prologue: Senior editor Matt Willey introduces this week’s theme – dubbing in French cinema. Since the 1930s, France has remained one of several European countries that choose to dub foreign films with the voices of their own, French-speaking actors. It might get bad press here in the UK, but in France, dubbing is considered an art form… Part One: The French Bruce Willis. When the French see Bruce Willis onscreen, they hear Patrick Poivey. From Moonlighting to Die Hard, Patrick has dubbed the action hero for almost 30 years. He explains how his career as one of the most recognised voices in France grew from idle days spent in Paris… Part Two: Francoise Cadol is the French Angelina. As the voice of Lara Croft Francoise’s work voicing other actresses has attracted fame in its own right. With her own fan club, Francoise explains the phenomenon of having people turn around to ask for your autograph when ordering a coffee… Part Three:In Paris, where acting schools thriv...
