*Update* Check out the big news!:
Very #exciting #announcement!
For some of us, the chase for knowledge is never ending, and the need to learn as much as we can is insatiable. Trust me, I am one of those people, and I understand the importance of balancing modern day life, work, family etc. with academic pursuits. Some of us are lucky that we can dedicate our lives to academia, but others of us are enthusiasts, and there is nothing wrong with that!
However, what that does mean, is that many of us are loosing out on what is going on in the Anthropological world because we do not have the time to sit and read all the new journal articles (if we can even afford it, #OpenAcess FTW) or sit and read the newest books. While i highly recommend you do when possible, I understand the difficulties with keeping up with things this way.
Since Paleoanthropology is, in my opinion of one of the fastest moving fields in STEM, it is important to try to stay up to date with current data and hypothesis, with the research and what is going on. When we have time, siting down to listen to an Audiobook, or to pick up a physical book, or watch a documentary, its a great thing to do. But sometimes, we do not even have time for that! And even if that is not the problem, some of us just like a different medium for their entertainment and education!
So today, I am proud to show off our Top Eight Anthropology Related Podcasts of 2022, so far! These are not listed in any particular order, if they have made it onto this list, that means they are all of high quality, and worth your time to listen to!
All of these podcasts are on Apple Podcasts, I do not know if they are available on other services as I do not use them, but I will give the names of them, and their links for Apple, so you can at least search for the names!
Please, enjoy, and never stop learning!
