Human To Human

Human to Human is a pod­cast where I get to chat with dif­fer­ent stu­dents and fac­ul­ty about what they find inter­est­ing about study­ing anthro­pol­o­gy. Since anthro­pol­o­gy can some­times feel like a mys­te­ri­ous dis­ci­pline, the goal of these con­ver­sa­tions is to shed light on what it looks like to study human cul­ture in today’s world, and why anthro­po­log­i­cal work remains a mean­ing­ful field of study. 

Through the inter­views, lis­ten­ers will get a more in-depth look at the dif­fer­ent sub­fields with­in anthro­pol­o­gy. For instance, how the approach to study­ing humans and cul­ture dif­fers between archae­ol­o­gy, biological/​physical anthro­pol­o­gy, and socio­cul­tur­al anthro­pol­o­gy. As well as lis­ten­ers will get to hear about some of the top­ics anthro­pol­o­gists are inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about.

My hope is that by the end of this series, peo­ple will get a glimpse into:
#1. Why anthro­pol­o­gy is so cool.
#2. How anthro­pol­o­gy is rel­e­vant to all of our lives.
#3. And how anthro­pol­o­gy isn’t just about study­ing bones.
