The Girl with the Space Unicorn Tattoo - GDAH 23

Penny Foreman joins the show to talk about her survey she recently presented at the CAA meeting, an the resulting Code of Conduct. She blogged about it, and her conference attire that sparked some (uncalled for) outrage, and a hearty Twitter conversation erupted.

These guests - Ruth Tringham (OG Trowel Blazer, and pioneer of feminist archaeology!), Chelsi Slotten (host of Women in Archaeology podcast, and researcher at American University/Smithsonian Museum), Kirsten Lopez (researcher at Oregon State University, and host of Women in Archaeology podcast), and Stephen Wagner (host of CRM Archaeology podcast, and heritage consultant in Calgary) - weigh in with some valuable perspectives.

Fit for the Field - GDAH 20

It's the chicken enchilada episode!

Chris' personal trainer - his brother, Jonathan Sims, joins the show to talk about fitness. No, not fitness whole enchilada in your mouth, they talk about functional movement, the social construction of fitness, and separating fact from fiction in an increasingly commodified field. Jonathan breaks down short term and long term issues for fitness that archaeologists need to think about - especially if you want to avoid destroying your knees, shoulders, and back after a career in the field.

Go Dig a Hole - GDAH Ep1

Welcome to the very first episode of the Go Dig a Hole podcast! This episode introduces your hosts, Andee and Christopher, as the format and goals of the series are explained.

In a nutshell, we feel there is a gap between they ways in which archaeology is presented in the classroom, and actual careers in archaeology. Nobody is going to be a tenure-track professor right out of the gates, so what do you do when you graduate? What kinds of jobs are there for someone with a degree in archaeology? Should you go to grad school, and if so, when and why?

This new podcast series is a dynamic companion to the Go Dig a Hole blog, particularly the Undergrad Guides series.
