Struggling Academics is a bi-monthly educational podcast for everyone interested in ideas, intellectual life and academic pursuits. At Struggling Academics, we deliberately venture into areas to which none of the hosts necessarily claim expertise. In each episode Dr. Andrasi (linguist), Dr. Clinnick (archaeologist), Dr. Pedersen (philosopher) & Dr. Vladescu (anthropologist/philologist) will discuss a particular topic with an uplifting and positive twist ranging from singular human experience ...
 
Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.
 
Welcome to Paleo Bites, the weekly podcast hosted by Matthew Donald where we make dumb jokes, reference pop culture, derail like crazy, and oh yeah, discuss and rate prehistoric animals. Each episode Matthew and a rotating set of guest co-hosts talk about a different genus of primeval critter, explain basic stats, exchange plenty of banter, barely fact-check, and at the end, rate the creature one out of 65 million for any reason, including but not limited to sexiness, mana, and dexterity. So ...
 
A podcast for the bold and curious to help you navigate our world's accelerating weirdness — about science and the philosophy of it, prehistory and post-humanity and deep time, non-human agency and non-duality, science fiction and the stories we regard as real, complex systems and sustainability (or lack thereof), psychedelics as a form of training for a weirding present and proliferating futures, art and creativity as service and as inquiry. Join paleontologist-futurist Michael Garfield eve ...

Walter Besant was a novelist and historian, and his topographical and historical writings, ranging from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century, were probably best known through the detailed 10-volume Survey of London published after his death. This earlier single volume covers, in less depth, the whole period from prehistory until the 19th century. The book appears originally to have been written for boys, and, indeed, the chapters are called "Lessons". However, it is a very readable hi ...
 
Stone Circles are one of the most enigmatic traces of the people that lives in Britain and Ireland thousands of years ago. But perhaps you have wondered what other types of archaeological sites and evidence we have from this period, what peoples’ lives were like thousands of years ago, or how archaeologists use the things they find to interpret life in the past? If you have, come and join the archaeologists from Project TIME as they embark on a new project to investigate Prehistoric Britain ...

The Late Bronze Age was a remarkable time in the eastern Mediterranean and the Near East.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that the whole of human history can be divided into two parts: before the Industrial Revolution, and after. Economist Duncan Weldon joins me to talk about the Industrial Revolution, why it started in Britain, and the trajectory of the British economy over the past two centuries. Get Duncan’s book, Two Hundred Years o…
 
Whether in an ecosystem, an economy, a jazz ensemble, or a lone scholar thinking through a problem, critical transitions — breakdowns and breakthroughs — appear to follow universal patterns. Creative leaps that take place in how mathematicians “think out loud” with body, chalk, and board look much like changes in the movement through “music-space” …
 
(image source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repenomamus) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Stephen Curro discuss Repenomamus, the biggest mammal of dinosaur times that actively preyed on dino babies, which is a real switcheroo in the usual predatory roles.

From mainland Greece to Minoan Crete and the famous city of Troy, what made the Aegean Sea one of the constituent pieces of the Bronze Age world? All of these cities are linked, not just by their proximity, but by much bigger things: trade, the emergence of cities and elite classes, the development of state structures and the written word. Patrick'…
 
Come with us as we finish up with the life and times of Homuda Wake.

(image source: https://prehistoric-life.fandom.com/wiki/Charnia) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Natasha Krech discuss Charnia, a very early animal that, yes, was an animal.

They are one of the two most implicated groups in the history of conspiracy theories. But their real history is, if less mysterious and ominous, just as unsettling.

This is ground breaking research from the Balkans where researchers are piecing together the apparently widespread use of cosmetics as far back as six and a half thousand years ago.

More than 4,000 years ago, a ruler came to power in the fractious, war-torn lands of Mesopotamia. He ruled a small state north of the region's ancient heartland, a place called Akkad, but over the course of his life, Sargon built something sprawling and unique: the world's first empire, the Akkadian Empire. Listen to new episodes 1 week early, to e…

This episode continues our look at some of the figures surrounding Homuda Wake and the royal family. In this case we look at one of the few people in the Chronicles from this period that we can see referenced by name in the excerpts from the Baekje Annals. Was he just another court noble? Or was he perhaps something more. For more information, chec…
 
We are all investors: we all make choices, all the time, about our allocation of time, calories, attention… Even our bodies, our behavior and anatomy, represent investment in specific strategies for navigating an evolving world. And yet most people treat the world of finance as if it is somehow separate from the rest of life — including people who …

Friend of the Show Dr. Keith Pluymers returns to tell us about how people thought about and fought over resources, especially wood, in early modern England.
