Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

We started today's show talking about drive time again but with a couple different hosts - Sonia and Doug. But, it's really a discussion about employee welfare and how to craft company policy so that it doesn't damage that. Is it possible? Should companies do it? There are some differing opinions and we're interested in yours.

The Drive Time Dilemma - Episode 138

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Drive time is always a hot-button issue in contract archaeology. Should you be paid going from the office to the town the work is in? Should you be paid if you take your own car? What about driving from your home to a local field project 30 min away? Should you be paid for that? We talk about these scenarios and more on today's episode. Please send us your feedback and opinions.

Recording Archaeology - Episode 137

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Other industries around the world record, either audio or video, presentations from conferences and at least make them available to their members or to those that bought a "virtual ticket". Archaeology is notably behind the curve on this but through the efforts of Doug Rocks-Macqueen and others we're getting there. On today's show we discuss the challenges and ethics behind recording and making available conference presentations.

Adulting - CRMArch 136

That's right - adulting (Stephen's favorite word!). On this show, we talk about setting up advance directives, disability insurance, life insurance, and some other things you really should be doing. We end the show with a few clips from the 2018 Society for American Archaeology conference in Washington, D.C.

Archaeology Careers and Jobs.jpg

Chris and Bill attended the 2018 Northwest Anthropological Association conference in Boise, Idaho in March 2018. They talk about what they saw and what they learned. Also, Chris, Doug, and Bill talk about archaeologists as curators. What should we keep? What should we give to curation facilities? What should be digitally recorded and who should store it?
