The arrival of H-Net's new network that is both about podcasts as scholarly production and composed of some podcasts, H-Podcast, prompts me to revisit and revise our June discussion on Blogging in American Studies.
Does any either produce or listen to any podcasts that they'd consider American Studies Podcasts? I listen to a few podcasts regularly, but none I'd say are AS so I'd be game to hear a few suggestions and compile a list for suggestions that come in.
While we're at it, what do we think of H-Podcast's topic of "the place of podcasts in the academy"? Do they have a place? Can they? I'm aware of a couple podcasts that are about academia, maybe about the process of writing or research. Are there podcasts composed of academic writing? Could it work? Regarding the few I said I listen to regularly, I have to admit I'm not particularly crazy about them. I'm not sure I like the form itself. They feel like conversations that I'm not allowed to be a part of.
Happy to hear thoughts, as well as leads for a list I'll post here.
