[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 this weekend post highlighting a handful of other great podcasts—share other ones you love, please!]
podcast highlights were ones on which I was honored to appear, but of course
there are many others I love as well! Here are a few more, and I would love
further suggestions from fellow AmericanPodcastStudiers:
Franklin’s World: Liz Covart’s
podcast on all things early American is really the gold standard for historical
and public scholarly podcasts, and is still going strong with well more than
Welcome to Your
Fantasy: Another form of podcast is the limited series, a podcast that
tells one compelling story in all its depth and complexity. The best public
scholarly such podcast I’ve encountered is Natalia Mehlman Petrzela’s justifiably
acclaimed series on the wild true crime story behind the Chippendales.
Then: I don’t know that I need to say much about this smash hit, featuring
two of our (if not the two) most prominent public scholars, Joanne Freeman and Heather Cox Richardson. What
I love most about it is right there in that titular ampersand—the consistent
way this podcast reveals the deep interconnections between present and past.
the Past: One of the newest public scholarly podcasts is Kate Carpenter’s unique and awesome
Drafting the Past, which debuted its first episode this week (featuring the awesome
Megan Kate Nelson). I just
recorded my own episode on Friday, which I can’t wait to share with you all
series starts Monday,
