[For this year’s Valentine’s Day series, I wanted to highlight some of the wonderful podcasts on which I’ve been honored to be interviewed. Leading up to a weekend post highlighting a handful of other great podcasts—share ones you love as well, please!]
Great public scholarly podcasts are partly about their specific niche and angle, as I discussed yesterday; but they’re also about the particular voices and perspectives of their hosts. Another excellent new podcast on which I was honored to appear last year is Impressions of America, a podcast co-hosted by three UK graduate students (Vaughn, Simon, and Tobi) that explores all things American Studies from that international perspective. Even when their episodes feature just those three hosts (as is often the case), the combination of their individual perspectives and their shared dynamics make the episodes must-listen—and when they bring in a guest, as they did for my episode, it only adds another layer to that unique and compelling existing dynamic. I love this trio and can’t wait to see where they take the podcast (and its spinoffs!) next!
Last podcast tomorrow,
PS. Podcasts you love?
