    GDAH Halloween 2021 Double Header

    Happy Halloween!

    This year we decided to bring double the fun with TWO NEW EPISODES of the Go Dig a Hole podcast. There are also TWO WAYS TO LISTEN: episodes 81 and 82 are available individually and as an all-in-one double header! The double-header is linked above.

    EPISODE 81 - Archaeology in Folk Horror and Haunting w/ Travis Corwin
    Individual show link:
    First up, Travis Corwin tells a frightening tale of an archaeological site in the murky swamps of Florida where horrifying events happened to the archaeologist who worked there. Travis also discusses the idea of "haunting" as a way to relate traumatic events of the past being temporal anomalies that shatter linear concepts of time and our relationships to the past. PLUS, he had "City of the Dead" (1960) playing on a massive projector behind him so Chris could watch a classic folk horror movie.

    GDAH Ep80 - Cowculating Your Data with Paulina Przystupa and Meghan Dennis

    Paulina Przystupa and Meghan Dennis join this new episode of the Go Dig a Hole podcast to drop tons of puns and talk about the upcoming launch of their public archaeology project's beta test.
    Paulina works with data visualization, programming, and stats; and Meghan works with user experience (UX) and archaeological ethics. Together, they've created a data literacy program through the Alexandria Archive Institute that offers a chance to learn fundamental skills with digital tools in archaeology.

    GDAH Ep8 ARCHIVE - Opportunities to Succeed

    GDAH Ep8 ARCHIVE - Opportunities to Succeed

    This episode aired sometime in 2015 and, while many of the archive episodes have been omitted due to dated or inaccurate info, this one still feels as relevant as it did 6 years ago. Here are some of the questions we explore:

    How do you make yourself stand out as an undergrad? What does a good job applicant look like? Where do you start when you're building your professional network from scratch? These are the big questions we struggle with early on in our careers as archaeologists, but there's something on your side if you're still in undergrad - opportunity.
