Podcasts

I have a hand in a number of podcast projects at the moment.

Consolation Prize, from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University: a podcast about the history of the United States in the world through the eyes of its consuls. I host and produce this podcast. We’ve covered everything from religion to politics to commerce to impressment, and we’ve been all over the world–to every continent except Antarctica (for obvious reasons) and Australia.

Big If True, a podcast I host and produce along with my 9-year-old daughter: a podcast where we explore the truth about big things. We interview experts about the big things in the world, every other week. We alternate between human-made big things and natural big things, and every once in a while we throw in some literary and cultural big things as well.

Preble Hall, a podcast about naval history from the U.S. Naval Academy Museum. I host this podcast along with two other naval historians. My episodes come out roughly once a month.
