January 14, 2016 Leave a Comment
We’ve officially made it to a new year, and with it comes fantastic new content on WPT’s video portal. Discover new streaming favorites with us, whether you’re a fan of cooking or the cosmos. Some of my favorite finds this month are:
FARM TO TABLE FAMILY
These quick videos are musical, inspiring and focused on farm-to-table recipes. Host Patricia Wong shares delicious meals with fresh ingredients that will get you trying something new in less than five minutes.
Pulling its name from a cinema term that means “point of view,” POV is television’s longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. It’s hard not to get drawn into these provocative, compelling documentaries. Check out Girl Model or StoryCorps Shorts: The Saint of Dry Creek for a personal window into contemporary social issues.
THE LEXICON OF SUSTAINABILITY
Don’t let this tongue twister of a name turn you off: these short, beautiful and interesting videos share so much interesting info in just a few minutes. If you are trying to figure out the difference between fair trade and direct trade, or if you’d like to learn more about how American farms get their water, dive into this video series aimed at educating about sustainability.
CRASH COURSE ASTRONOMY
What is weird metallic hydrogen? How does Saturn have a solid core? Would a gas giant planet really float in a giant bathtub? Find out by watching these quick, beautifully animated and SUPER interesting videos about our universe.
