Episode 14 – “It's Not the Heat, It's the Humanity”

*Episode title is taken from Have Gun, Will Travel song of the same name. Casting Shadows Tall as Giants, 2008.

Our intention for this episode was to close out the season with another summertime related topic. As with the summer closer for season one, Wish You Were Here, where we talked the archaeology of Florida’s tourist industry and we recorded the episode from Weeki Wachee Springs, we had hoped to bring another light-hearted and summertime related podcast. However, because of the state of life at the moment, we didn’t feel it would be appropriate to have that conversation. We will have that conversation later and we have a great guest interview already recorded and ready to go.  

That being said… Our focus for the entirety of Season 3 of the Materialists Podcast will be on the material culture of race. It is a heavy and complex topic but we hope to bring diverse voices to each episode and do our best to explain the role archaeologists can play in the conversation.

Some summertime homework to help you prepare for Season 3 of The Materialists Podcast…

And so much more. If you want more links and information please email us at materialistspodcast@gmail.com and I will provide with so much more stuff!
