Eye Opening Colonial History of Archaeology and Museums

Had to check out this podcast for a Humanities of the Middle East course. Informed, eye-opening, concise. Thank you for making this podcast! I’ll definitely be listening to more episodes from now on!

Amazing!

Such great content. The conversations are so engaging and the interviews are so interesting. Love the historical episodes. I’ve listened to the conversation with Ingrid Okert three or four times.

Science and science history

Great proportion of science to tech, that is, a lot to very little. Good and interesting science history, usually stuff that I haven't already heard of. Fleshing out the field, bringing underrepresented stories to the forefront. Wish there were more like this.
