Savage Minds: The Podcast

I’m pleased to announce that Savage Minds now has a podcast! It’s an occasional series, in the sense that we only will post podcasts when we figure out that we have something interesting to say. The official listing is still wending its way through the iTunes store, but you can subscribe right here:


In the first episode, I interview Jason Baird Jackson about the Open Folklore project and scholarly publishing more generally. We have two more episodes in the works which I will (try to remember to) release each Monday for the next two weeks at least.

I’m very excited that SM is moving ahead with a podcast series, although I’m a little embarrassed that Civil Society will have to suffer through listening to me learn how to actually make a podcast. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them!


Alex Golub is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. His book Leviathans at The Gold Mine has been published by Duke University Press. You can contact him at
