Roberto Trotta and Laura Cameron-Lewis
Is it possible to explain the mysteries of the Universe using only the 1000 most commonly used words in English? Or Gaelic? The Edge of the Sky | Oir Nan Speur is a unique new theatre show, adapted from a book in which award-winning science communicator Roberto Trotta tries to explain some of the most complex ideas in astronomy using only the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language. For the stage version, Hebridean theatre director Laura Cameron-Lewis has added another challenge – what if you add the 1000 most commonly used words in Gaelic to that list? Episode 7 of our podcast is a fascinating meeting of minds in which Roberto and Laura discuss everything from ancient storytelling traditions and how language shapes the way we think to interstellar travel, aliens, climate change, dark matter, and the end of the Universe. The Edge of the Sky | Oir Nan Speur is produced by sruth-mara and supported by Creative Scotland and Bord na Gaidhlig.

Bethany Rigby
The Outer Hebrides’ relationship with astronomy, Bethany Rigby says, “embodies humanity’s changing view of our place within the universe”. The designer, researcher and writer, above, is now the creator of Outer Hebrides // Outer Space, a new research project that explores our islands’ astronomical significance, from the Neolithic Age of celestial observation to present day plans for Spaceport 1, the UK’s first vertical satellite launch site. The project began during an Island Going residency in June 2019 and Bethany is set to exhibit her work at An Lanntair later in 2021. She also knows some fascinating facts about shooting stars and Scottish place names on Mars.

En fantastisk app med et enormt stort udvalg af spændende podcasts. Podimo formår virkelig at lave godt indhold, der takler de lidt mere svære emner. At der så også er lydbøger oveni til en billig pris, gør at det er blevet min favorit app.
Rigtig god tjeneste med gode eksklusive podcasts og derudover et kæmpe udvalg af podcasts og lydbøger. Kan varmt anbefales, om ikke andet så udelukkende pga Dårligdommerne, Klovn podcast, Hakkedrengene og Han duo 😁 👍
