Episode 11 – Ich bin ein Emile Berliner

This episode starts by sharing a few popular stories inspired by the hopes and fears of a phonographic future, before moving on to introducing Emile Berliner (who you get to hear sing) and his gramophone. After that, I ponder what was lost in the disc record’s victory over the cylinder. Also: talking sponges, Egyptian colossi and a parrot.
