OUR SHOWS

Congress Watch

Congress Watch

Congress Watch with Catherine is what would happen if Rachel Maddow, C-SPAN, and The Daily Show had a very awkward child. Each week, I will give a quick summary of political current events, discuss upcoming elections or legislation, choose an issue of the week to talk about in detail, and maybe even try to relate the important (or not-so -important) things going on around the country to bad pop songs. If politics and humor are your thing, tune in!

AIRS: TUESDAYS @ 10AM
Art Talk

Art Talk

After hours and hours of speaking about art (whatever that is) Sarah McCarty and Dani Dimitrova finally decided to begin recording their conversations of current muses, whether these be ancient artifacts, current art exhibitions or daily interactions. In short, an artist and an aspiring art historian intend to construct, deconstruct and reconstruct some of these ideas throughout the show, using various means to do so: from interviews and special guests, to audio exhibits and plain conversation. Please tune in and send ideas, feedback and questions!

AIRS: SUNDAYS @ 12PM
Tales From An Unknown Spacecraft

Tales From An Unknown Spacecraft

Hello, listeners. We are about to embark on a journey of sorts, one that only the mind can take. Close your eyes, ease into your chair, and let your imagination explore wonders of phantasmagoria. There is an unknown spacecraft above us, floating aimlessly in the emptiness of space around our planet. It sends signals to us, tales from unknown lands, of unknown people and unknown legends. Let us listen to their tales and let the creatures of that unknown spacecraft take us to places we’ve never been.

This Anthropological Life

This Anthropological Life

“Bringing Culture to Life” through, anthropological readings of current events, interviews, reflections, and discussions. This radio show is a collaboration between Brandeis University graduate students Adam Gamwell, cultural anthropologist, Aneil Tripathy, economic anthropologist, and Ryan Collins, archaeologist. Our goal is to bring anthropology more firmly into the public sphere. Why does this matter? Because we believe anthropology has a deep capacity to narrate and share human (and sometimes not-so-human) stories that bring us to the center of what matters most in social life.
