That's all Folks!
And that’s a wrap (for now at least)! Check out our tech series finale, where we discuss what we learned about privacy, the effect of tech on society, and if social media really is “making the world a better place.”
Unfortunately, this will be our last bit of content for this year. Make sure you check out all our previous episodes!
Quick Clip - Silicon Valley
Presenting WK Quick Clips: quick answers to life's burning questions. Today's topic... Silicon Valley!
Virtual Water Cooler Chats
Starting a new job (or chugging away at your current one) from home can be weird, to say the least! With more and more companies extending their remote work status indefinitely, the virtual office doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. Join us and our friend Alina Kramkova as we chat about what it's like to work from home, in the fourth episode of this series.
Virtual Learning 101
Been literally rolling right out of bed to "zoom" to class? We've been there. As if trying to learn (or teach) new things wasn't hard enough already, students and educators all over the world now get to do it remotely! Join us as we chat with our friend Daniel Noh and try to keep up with the world of virtual education (and learn about fatbergs too!)
22nd Century City
Trains and buildings can't do math (or can they?), but that doesn't mean they're not smart! In this episode, we continue our conversation about the internet of things as we learn about smart cities. Join us for self-navigating intersections, intelligent energy grids, and the city of the future.
My Fridge is my Friend!
Announcing the release of WK 3G: a newer, faster, and better podcast! We’re kicking off our third series with an attempt to understand the Internet of Things -- is it more ‘internet’ or more ‘thing’? Join us as we fantasize about the coffee maker of the future, and continue to expand our working knowledge about everyday things.
That's the Spirit!
There are two kinds of people: those who find ghost stories horrifying, and those who find them hilarious (this podcast features both) -- but everyone can agree they’re fun! Tune in to our new episode to figure out how you feel about the supernatural, as we tell ghost stories from South Asia.
The Rat, the Ox, and the Butterfly
Some stories never get old, no matter how many times you hear them. Join us as we share Chinese folktales from centuries ago, featuring an orchestral accompaniment and the ever-relevant Mulan!
Think you're a narcissist? Think again. Turns out, the word comes with a Greek (read: old and tragic) tale. Join us as we kick off Series 2: Story Time, with fantasies, fables, and The Fates.
Making friends after college only gets tougher -- and a pandemic is certainly not the time to mingle. Join us as we try to hang on to the friends we do have and welcome two very special guests for our first series finale! Featuring Michael Powell and Maria Barr.
Welcome back to school! Jk, we've graduated and this episode marks our first time on the sidelines of the first day of classes. Join us as we reflect on what we learned amidst all the chaos!
Believe it or not, we do have interests outside architecture school -- more school! In this episode, we ask each other some not-so-minor questions about our college minors. Come learn about human-computer interaction, history, writing, and more!
Dare to Date
Human interaction (especially of the romantic variety) is not always easy, but from 6 feet away it feels nearly impossible. On today's episode, we turn to the world of online dating for advice -- come give it a shot with us!
The pandemic has disrupted lives and plans everywhere, and the Class of 2020 is no exception. Aware that most new grads have been cut the rawest of raw deals, we try to figure out how to keep our careers on track while staying at home!
Cooking a lot more since graduating in the middle of a pandemic? We have! Join us as we share our #kitchenhacks to buy, cook, and eat like functional adults. WARNING: Bring a snack!
