I was able to have a lovely conversation with the anthropologist Ruth Behar on AnthroPod, the Podcast of the Society for Cultural Anthropology": “Anthropologists as Public Intellectuals: Ruth Behar in Conversation with Kristen Ghodsee.”
I’m a little over halfway to my goal of 47 episodes. But boy, I had no idea that podcasting was such hard work. Much respect to those that do this every week.
I have been so fortunate to be guests on two great podcasts. Many thanks to Marina Kadriu and Alec Opperman.
For those of you interested in the works of Alexandra Kollontai and her views on sexuality, I finally finished reading the final part of her 1923 essay, "Make Way for Winged Eros: A Letter to Working Youth" for my A.K. 47 podcast. I’ll be discussing it in depth during my next episode, but make sure you listen to the whole essay before you listen to the discussion.
I was so please to have had the opportunity to speak with Neil Denny on the Little Atoms podcast. He asked such thoughtful and insightful questions, and i love the fact that he allows long-winded academics like me to waffle on when necessary. I really do need to learn how to speak in sound byte one of these days…
Thanks so much to Dan Snow for reaching out to me to be a guest on his wonderful History Hit podcast. I had so much fun during this conversation; Dan asked the most thoughtful and insightful questions.
