Alt-Ac Inspiration

The episodes of this podcast are rich in information and analysis. Unlike other history podcasts that feel like Wikipedia pages just read out loud, this podcast offers insight beyond the facts of history.

As a freshly minted PhD in English, I want to see more and more academics doing the kind of work the hosts are doing with this podcast, particularly as they are helping to question and redefine public intellectualism.

Great analysis

The historical and literary context Andy and Elizabeth bring to current events is illuminating and provocative. Come for the analysis, stay for the awesome music and tv reccos.

Y’all have a wonderful humanities and academic perspective on the world that’s refreshing in a world of hot takes. I look forward to each episode with it’s blending of literary scholarship, current events, and culture. Keep ‘em coming :)
