The season finale of Season 2 of the Caraheard podcast is simply epic. Over two hours of Caraheard goodness with lots of cross references.
To celebrate, I present you with an equally epic show notes to help you navigate the web of references in this final podcast.
We talked quite optimistically about the number of podcasts in the first episode of the season. We failed to get to a dozen episodes, but we did one per month and we had some pretty spectacular guests including Dimitri Nakassis, Ömür Harmansah, Jon Frey, Kostis Kourelis, Bev Phillips, and Kim Stanley Robinson. Pretty cool group for our second season on the internets.
I think it might be nice to have chapters in our podcast, although they may involve more work than we’re willing to invest. Marco Arment, who developed the fine podcast application Overcast was opposed to chapters, until he wasn’t.
We mention Michael Shanks, Bill Rathje, and Chris Witmore’s nice edited volume Archaeology in the Making: Conversations though a Discipline. (London 2013). I reviewed the book this essay for the American Journal of Archaeology and we talk about it with Kostis Kourelis on our podcast here.
I mention The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota never missing a chance to promote my little publishing house. Go and download our books.
For those who are curious. This is the mighty Milo at Repose:
One of our first big hits from our first season was a live podcast with Andrew Reinhard on the topic of archaeogaming.
Here’s a link to Ryan Adams, Live at Carnegie Hall. I might have overstated the sonic issues with this album. Despite what I said, I do like the live recordings at KEXP. In fact, I just like KEXP. I also mention Neil Young, Live at Massey Hall. This is a fantastic album.
I mentioned my beloved Zu Speakers and misrepresented the power of my stereo subwoofer set up.
I keep teasing about OUTRAGE.
Next season, we’re teasing David Pettegrew for the show and his new book is already being promoted by the University of Michigan Press. We also tease having Bret Weber on the show (he doesn’t do the internet) and Aaron Barth (he blogs here sometimes). We also mentioned a book that will come out on my press edited by Erin Walcek Averett, Derek Counts, and Jody Gordon, titled Mobilizing the Past. I need to get something up to promote it. Finally, it would be really cool to get Eric Kansa, R. Scott Moore, and Sarah Lepinski on the podcast as well.
We also talk about some of my work with David Pettegrew at the site of Ano Vayia.
Here’s our stone-by-stone:
And our drawing of the Lychnari tower:
James Wiseman wrote a very useful topographic study of the Corinthia called The Land of the Ancient Corinthians. While there have been many topographic studies of this region, Corinth I by Fowler and Stillwell remains a classic.
Bill is preparing these show notes from the village of Polis-Chrysochous on Cyprus. For more on his work there, go here, and for some details on the burials at Polis in the area of EG0 are here. He will also be working with the fine folks at WARP (the Western Argolid Regional Project) and will carefully blog about his time here. Finally, he and his colleagues, plod along in the publication of the Pyla-Kouteopstroa Archaeological Project and here is PKAP I (PKAP II is in the works!).
Richard’s will be working on the Dakota War. You can get a brief survey of the Dakota Wars in an introduction that Richard wrote for a translation of Karl Jakob Skarsteins’s War with the Sioux. You can download that book for free here or buy it on Amazon. There is another university press in North Dakota, and a very fine one at that. Over the course of that conversation we refer to the Pleiades Project, as well as psychogeography and magical realism.
Before long, Bill diverges into a conversation about cricket positions.
We talk about how to end things like North Dakota Quarterly or the North Dakota Humanities Council’s Game Changer Series, and how it’s sometimes best to have a plan for how to end something from the beginning. This brings us to the idea of a suicide gene.
