As the library asks, "What do you geek?" I geek science fiction, fantasy, the outdoors, critical race theory, politics, organizing, among other things. Mostly, I geek history. So I've tied all that together into one podcast. Change Over Time is a podcast using historical thinking to explore geekiness. Sometimes I’ll be reporting from the field. Other times I’ll explore how different ideas, theories, or methods used by historians can be used by non-historians. I’ll also release edited pieces of oral histories I’ve done with interesting people. Sign up for the Alternative Historian newsletter to keep up to date.

The Aftermath was the beginning, for me as a fan

The first aftermath episode where Daniel Horowitz Garcia interviews his mother about the weeks (and months) after Puerto Rico was devastated by hurricanes is not only engaging, human, and important, it's also edited really, really well.
Interspersing the authentic voice of someone who has lived through the aftermath of a natural disaster along with her family and neighbors with the expertise of someone well-versed in the more general/academic realities of how humans tend to behave in the wake of a life-changing (and neighborhood-changing, and nation-changing) event like a hurricane helped me remain fully engaged in the episode, and also helped structure my understanding of the experiences and issues at hand...including helping me to know better what I'm looking for as I read reports and news from afar and try to understand better what the situation is like on the ground for people in Puerto Rico still trying to rebuild.
The episode content would have been enough for me to be interested in listening to at least several episodes of this podcast, probably even if the episodes had been longer than the perfect length that they are. The production quality, thoughtfulness, and heart shown in the first episode I listened to, and the willingness to go beyond the (awesome) surface stories about neighbors coming together to help one another into analysis of what that might mean about humanity, and what it might mean about the political future for Puerto Rico, is what has made me a subscriber.
Thanks, Daniel Horowitz Garcia! I look forward to hearing what you want to talk about next.

Worth your time

Short segments are insightful, surprising, human and holistic.

Great storyteller

From the first few seconds Daniel's voice commands you to listen and be present. His voice and tone lets the listener know the topic he's discussing is serious. You can tell he isn't interested in talking to you, Daniel wants you to feel the experience he is having. He is immersing you in the story via the audio clips and displaying storytelling skills. This is very well produced podcast, his audio production was amazing!
