    Episode 28 "The Glencoe Massacre: Part 1"

    Why HELLOOOOOO friends! It's been quite a while since I published an episode of the podcast, but in these times, what else can one do but make a podcast about a sociopolitical movement leading to one of the most infamous events in British history? Am I right? Let me take you back in time to 17th century Scotland for Part 1 of my series on the Glencoe Massacre. McNiven out!

    Episode 27 of The Struggling Archaeologist's Guide to Getting Dirty Podcast - "Ranger Danger"

    In this special episode of the podcast we discuss the dangers of archaeology and things you should consider before heading out into the field. I had a fun time discussing this topic with some of my archaeology friends, who contributed some of their horror stories from the field. Then shorty news is back with a look at glacial archaeology. Enjoy the pod my peeps!

    Episode 26 "The Real Game of Thrones"

    Episode 26 "The Real Game of Thrones"

    Welcome to Episode 26 of The Struggling Archaeologist's Guide to Getting Dirty! 
    It's Game of Thrones time once again, so while you're
    catching up on life in Westeros this season why not enjoy a bit of the history
    behind George R. R. Martin's addictive series. While there's lots to choose
    from, this episode focuses on the links between the Lannister/Stark feud and
    the English monarchy during the Wars of the Roses. Comparisons will be made,
    heads will be lost, and spoilers will abound. So beware, but enjoy the
    awesomeness that is the REAL Game of Thrones!

    Episode 25 "Pcola Pride"

    Episode 25 "Pcola Pride"

    In this episode we explore two difference phases of early exploration and settlement in North America. First, the Vikings because Vikings don't need an explanation they're Vikings. Second, a recent discovery in Pensacola has revealed the location of an early Spanish settlement that has brought Spanish colonialism back into the spotlight. So sit back and enjoy, I promise I only mention Columbus once, the scoundrel!

    Episode 24 "The Mother of All Archaeology Podcasts"

    Episode 24 "The Mother of All Archaeology Podcasts"

    Hi friends! It's Episode 24 of The Struggling Archaeologist's Guide to Getting Dirty. In this podcast I open up about working throughout my pregnancy and managing family life and careers in the field. Then we cover some of the biggest news stories of 2015 and discuss the latest book club selection. Oh, and if you're perceptive you might notice that I started off the podcast pregnant and ended it with a baby. These things happen when you sit down to record at 10 months pregnant and decide to take a "break" for 2 days. C'est la vie!
