This is a special extended discussion that we had to cut from Episode 106 of the CRM Archaeology Podcast. The panel voices some frustration with establishing careers in archaeology and the gaps between classrooms and careers, which are difficult to navigate.
Today’s episode trials a new format of the Anarchaeologist podcast, now on a monthly release schedule (adhering to anything would be very anarchistic would it?). Tristan talks about getting involved with projects and taking part in the world, and more importantly why everyone should feel at least they have some chance to do something worthwhile. A special recording is provided by Dr. Chloe Duckworth a.k.a. ArchaeoDuck. And for the first time on the network we hear from the 5YR Leader and his opinions on archaeology.

In this episode, we talk to Diné (Navajo) archaeologist, Jason Nez. He talks about being Diné and an archaeologist, challenges he faces as a Native American archaeologist, and how the way archaeology is presented (aliens!) can either empower or belittle tribes. He talks about his work educating both Diné youth and the general public about archaeology and Native American perspectives and why that is important. Finally, he highlights his experiences across the country as a fire archaeologist, including what that looks like, looting concerns, and learning from other tribes about their different cultural resources.

Today we talk about Cryptology and petroglyphs. Are there ancient images of Bigfoot painted on stone? How can we be sure what we think we're seeing is what they image means? And why it's important to take indigenous culture into account when trying to make sense of things.

Hanna Marie joins this episode to discuss ableism in archaeology. Some if the issues surrounding ableism include problematic statements and actions by the March for Science organizers, lack of accessibility at professional conferences, fieldwork and field schools, and the emptiness of claiming intersectionality without actually being inclusive.
