About the Podcast

By ourselves and with our guests, we look back at the media of yesterday through the lens of today in order to determine if it has any relevance to the contemporary experience. We structure the podcast so that the format loosely resembles an academic paper, but one that everyone can understand.

You can find our upcoming episodes here. We are always looking for ideas for new episodes, and for guests to chat about the media with us.
