Welcome to Third Eye Weekly. On this podcast we try and answer the big questions with intimate, personal narratives that give insight into the human experience that others might over-look.
Today’s podcast is about throwing it back. Nostalgia and vintage nods to yesteryear are everywhere in a generation that seeks the past to define the present. Throwback Thursdays, vinyl record collecting, typewriters, historical trends… why do we enjoy looking to the past to inform our present?
We’ll talk with Megan Savage, media and communications spokeswoman for Yirego, a Toronto based innovative design company that has created a foot-powered laundry washing machine known as the Drumi–which draws on design influence from back in the day.
We’ll also chat with Mark Dyble, an biological anthropologist who will take us way back with a study he led at the University College of London which sought to investigate gender equality during prehistoric times.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Johan Huibers, a Dutch man who built an exact-scale replica of Noah’s ark.
You can also check out a video of our interview with Megan Savage, media and communications spokesperson for Yirego.
