New podcast episode out!

In this episode, I interview Dr. Hannah Apert-Abrams @Halperta about her transition from completing a PhD in comparative literature to being a program specialist at the National Endowment for the Humanities. We talk about how awesome librarians and archivists are, the benefits of seeing humanities as a collective, the unpredictability of the job market, and what exactly is (are?) the digital humanities.

The episode should appear on your usual podcast platform today or tomorrow.

Note that I am phasing out the standalone (non-buzzsprout) website of the website and the Twitter account.

Help me spread the word! I'm always looking for guest who 1) have undertaken a serious attempt at a PhD in a humanities discipline, and 2) currently works in an alt-ac career that isn't the result of significant retraining. You can reach me (for podcast purposes) at
