Episode1

We are jumping into the podcast game! Episode 1 finds The Materialists talking about what we are going to be talking about. What is material culture? What is archaeology? What is all this stuff about anyhow? A recurrent segment on the podcast will our “material culture challenge”. Each host will bring a piece of material culture to the table related to the theme of each episode and discuss why it matters. 

Becky’s object: Agatized-coral Hernando projectile point, Nigel’s object: Mema's steel mixing bowl
