Cultural History Podcasts Are Golden
Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, but the past perfect! ~Owens Lee Pomeroy
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. ~From the television show The Wonder Years
People are trapped in history, and history is trapped in them. ~James Baldwin
A good definition of Cultural History (CH) and very apropos for today is when Google often honors notable people’s birthdays with creative Google main page headers that link to resourceful pages about them such as Wikipedia. In a nutshell, CH comprises: artistic, scientific, business, social and political contributions/achievements to our culture by people or events. Our culture wouldn’t have progressed without them then or now.
Virtual CH multimedia is nothing short of amazingly resourceful, and not just for individuals; groups like i.e. older adult activity groups can more benefit from virtual CH that leads to useful activities. Even those with physical restrictions who often can’t attend or participate in activities.
Unfortunately, using the internet can quickly become overwhelming for older adults and activity group leaders thus, all of that glorious CH that can provide beneficial activities ends up unused sitting on a “virtual” shelf. Developed by a Media Education professional with certification in older adult activities, CulturalHistoryPodcasts.com (CHP) “Golden” Media Calendars makes it easy, efficient and much less random for older adults and activity leaders to access and enjoy virtual CH multimedia that benefits everyone including those physically restricted.
CHP’s Golden Media Calendars efficiently consolidates CH multimedia (text, audio, video) accessed with the ease of simple clicks thus, eliminating most web usage mechanics like scrolling. CHP’s Golden Media calendar features 20th Century notable birthdays and events presented as audio podcasts and multimedia links.
Accessing virtual CH with ease by using CHP’s Golden Media Calendars is important for activity directors and their older adult groups and individuals, but the CH activities from using Golden Media Calendars is the big fun. Older adults can feel like famous newscasters of the past (like i.e. Edward Murrow, Walter Cronkite or Diane Sawyer) by presenting Golden Media calendar podcasts to their groups and their communities if they choose to make their own optional CH podcasts.
