Brought to you by the Liberal Arts Collective at The Pennsylvania State University, “Unraveling the Anthropocene: Race, Environment, and Pandemic” brings together academics, artists, activists, and community members from around the world to discuss issues at the intersection of race, environment, and pandemic.
In lieu of a conference, over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year, my colleagues and I are interviewing, editing, distributing, and marketing the podcast, while facilitating a reading group and keynote roundtable related to the series. We have also created an archive for the series through our website, featuring comprehensive episode descriptions, speaker biographies, and further resources. Notably, the reading group was featured in a Penn State round-up of events for Black History Month.
I became involved in the project in August 2020, hoping to lend my technical expertise to the team; now I have had so much fun both on and off the microphone, interviewing guests and using Adobe Audition and Anchor to produce our episodes. Some of my episodes are featured to the right, but you can listen to more on Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
