On today's show we talk to two archaeologists that have organized an amazing outreach system that they're using in the mid-west. It's called the Artifact Roadshow and it's a place where people can bring in their finds and have them recorded and evaluated. It's a great tool for public outreach and can be modeled anywhere.
On today's show, April and Chris interview Kaibab National Forest Service archaeologist Neil Weintraub. We talk about fire archaeology, vandalism in the forest, and public outreach.

APN presents the live podcast forum from the 82nd Annual Meeting of Society for American Archaeology. The APN hosts in attendance for the discussion included Michael Ashley, Jeb Card, Ken Feder, Kirsten Lopez, Chris Sims, Stephen Wagner, and Chris Webster. The audience also joins the panel for this first-of-its-kind session at the SAA.
The forum covered the growth of the APN, the variety of programs on the network, and the education and outreach paradigms developed through the medium of podcasting.
