    It’s a celebration as Kody, Sean, and Ian wrap up Season 1 and discuss the unlikelihood of developing and hosting a podcast.

    The Transect: Part IX - Getting Curious with George

    Part IX – Getting Curious with George
    It’s the New Year, and The Transect keeps rolling along. Tune is as Sean, Kody, and Ian sit down with the Chair of the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University – Dr. George P. Nicholas. We chat about his early years in the northeastern United States and his own transformation in Kamloops, BC where local Nation members challenged him to think and perform archaeology in new ways. As former students of George, he never wastes a moment to drop phat knowledge while we discuss archaeology as it is expressed in differential power relations, theoretical discourse, and actual practice in BC.

The Transect is what we need in BC Archaeology

A podcast for all people involved in Archaeology in BC, but also applicable worldwide. The hosts provide a forum for those who work on-the-ground in CRM Archaeology by providing insights and human stories from the field that are insightful, funny, and reflective. A must listen!
