Great Podcast for Historians and Normies Alike
I wish they would post a new episode already! Love the podcast, goes in depth on a range of topics and almost always fascinating. As an American, it really made my perception of Canada and its nature much more three dimensional. Host Sean is fantastic! Wish I could afford his book lol
Kudos to NICHE for its podcast. I'd love to see US-based history groups (the OAH, NCPH, ASEH...) do something similar.
historians take a listen
This is an informative and entertaining podcast that presents the work of scholars in enviro history. It is well-produced and has concise and interesting segments. This could serve as a model for other disciplines looking to circulate ideas and share current research. And cheaper than going to a conference!
