Jogesh Babu invited guest on SynTalk episode

Main Content

SynTalk (short for Synthesis Talk) is a freewheeling interdisciplinary talk show with a philosophical approach to understanding the world from a long-term perspective. SynTalk believes that all understanding lies on nodes, and it, therefore, brings together concepts, ideas, and impulses from different epistemological categories under one topic in one episode. The goal is to contribute and promote original interdisciplinary collaboration & research inside, outside, and across academic institutions, companies, think tanks, independent intellectuals, students, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, connoisseurs, and common folk. In the long run, SynTalk aspires to become a global platform for fence-less thinking.

Jorgesh BabuJogesh will be recorded in Mumbai, India on March 18th.   SynTalk believes that all understanding lies on nodes, and it, therefore, brings together concepts, ideas, and impulses from different epistemological categories. SynTalk usually deals with disciplines such as art, mathematics, computer science, literature, logic, sciences, social sciences, philosophy, psychology, media, design, music, medicine, political theory, ecology, public policy, technology, economics, physics, anthropology, gaming, history, and artificial intelligence. SynTalk’s goal is to contribute & promote original interdisciplinary collaboration & research inside, outside and across academic institutions, companies, think tanks, independent intellectuals, students, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, connoisseurs, and common folk. In the long run, SynTalk aspires to become a global platform for fence-less thinking.

 A SynTalk episode is one hour long, purely audio in its delivery format, and conceptual & theoretical in its structure. The audio format (as contrasted with the audio-visual), we believe, keeps the performative aspect to a minimum, is closer to thought, and fosters critical imagination. The conversations are spontaneous and strictly unscripted, unedited & uninterrupted. A typical episode has ideas, concepts, and impulses from at least 3-4 different disciplines. These factors give our episodes a (somewhat) raw & unfinished texture. SynTalk does not aspire for icy perfection.

 The SynTalk team is also currently working on creating SynToy; a technology-enabled personal resource for thinking, & playing with ideas and concepts. SynToy shall be released during Turn Three. You may track us on Twitter (@SynTalk) for regular updates.

The episodes may be accessed or subscribed to for free via SoundCloudiTunes, or the Episodes page link above. You may also track us on Twitter (@SynTalk, updated almost daily with concepts, thoughts & periodic announcements). You may download/bookmark links or apps on your preferred platform. SynTalk is committed to making its episodes available for free on all relevant internet-based platforms. We release almost four episodes every month (recordings happen on Saturdays and episodes are released on Sundays).

The SynTalk team members (called Synners) are based in Mumbai, India. Those interested in volunteering as Synners (research assistants, sound engineers, software programmers, & editors) may write to SynthesisTalk@gmail.com.
