Owning a large dog who needs exercise, I find myself spending a lot of time going for walks, and so I’m always looking for good podcasts and audiobooks I can listen to. Unfortunately, there aren’t many anthropology choices out there. There are some conference and lecture podcasts, such as the SFAA podcasts, but almost no radio shows. Certainly nothing like Radio Lab or On The Media, my two favorite podcasts. Recently, however, I did discover one decent radio show which frequently interviews anthropologists: the BBC’s Thinking Allowed. For instance this recent episode discussed both biometric security (including its colonial roots), as well as ethical issues in medical ethnography.
On a related note, while they don’t have any other anthropology interviews, this episode of the UC Press Podcast contains an interview with Savage Minds occasional blogger Jonathan Marks about his new book Why I am Not a Scientist: Anthropology and Modern Knowledge.
Anyone know of any other anthropology related podcasts, radio shows, or audiobooks?
