I am pleased to share with you, dear readers, that in less than a month I will be using my blog to host a Guest Blog Series titled #PodcastingHistory.
Inspired by a conversation during the American Historical Association's Annual Meeting (#aha18) about what it means and entails to create a well-researched history podcast, I decided to explore the topic. As such, I have invited some dedicated history podcasters from a variety of academic backgrounds, and with vastly different interests and approaches to history, to create posts explaining their process.
The format is simple: the historians will choose an episode of their podcast and tell the world how they came to choose the topic, research it, and turn it into something you can listen to in your spare time. By reading one post you will gain entirely new insight into the many ways people can approach history and make valuable discoveries to share with you, our wonderful listeners.
On February 19th I will kick off the series and it will be followed by posts from the hosts of history podcasts like:
and, of course, Footnoting History!
I hope you will join us on this adventure!
(Oh, and if you are an established history podcaster, and you'd like to contribute a post of your own to our series, drop me a line here. I would love to hear from you.)
