The Familiar Strange is a podcast about doing anthropology: that is, about listening, looking, trying out, and being with, in pursuit of uncommon knowledge about humans and culture. Available on iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and all the other familiar places. Find show notes, plus our blog about anthropology's role in the world, at www.thefamiliarstrange.com.

Brought to you by your familiar strangers: Ian Pollock, Jodie-Lee Trembath, Julia Brown, and Simon Theobald, four PhD candidates in anthropology at Australian National University, with support from the Australian Anthropological Society, the Australian National University’s Schools of Culture, History and Language and Archeology and Anthropology, and the Australian Centre for Public Awareness of Science, and produced in collaboration with the American Anthropological Association.
We acknowledge and celebrate the first Australians on whose traditional lands we record this podcast, and pay our respects to the elders of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples, past, present, and emerging.
