The Professor Footnote Podcast was created because the world is full of interesting topics that drive interesting conversations. Unfortunately, most conversations are informed by rumors, and half-truths, or by vague recollections of things read or heard long ago. On Professor Footnote, we try to bolster the art of conversation by chasing down the interesting information. Our hope is that the podcast informs you not only about our chosen topics but also the wealth of creative and academic work that exists in the world and makes that world and its conversations more interesting. Our suspicion is that the podcast will make you only slightly better at trivia games.

Bring in the Clowns

Podcast one is an good listen and a surprisingly earnest look at clowns and clowning from the 19th Century to the present. As advertised, I'm sure I indeed WILL be slightly more interesting at my next dinner party.
