Watching Brief January - SoupCast

SoupCast is a collaboration between ArchaeoSoup Productions and the Archaeology Podcast Network

Welcome to Watching Brief. A monthly show available via podcast and as topical segments via YouTube. As the name implies, each month my co-host Andy Brockman of the Pipeline (Where history is tomorrow's news) and I cast an eye over news stories, topical media and entertainment and discuss and debate what we find.
