Ep#105 Podstudies: Dr Ian Cook on the Future of Academia & Podcasts

The podcast is back!

We hope you haven’t missed our dulcet tones too much!

This week, we’ve challenged ourselves to be as meta as possible, with a podcast, about podcasting, released by an academic podcast! Try saying that after a wine or two.

Familiar Stranger Tim and Sean sat down with Dr Ian Cook, who has recently released his book “Scholarly Podcasting Why, What, How?”, which actually interviewed some Familiar Strange alumni, keep your ears peeled for the name drops!

It was a really interesting conversation about the future of podcasting, and how academia is shaping podcasting and vice versa.
