AnthroPod is the podcast of the Society for Cultural Anthropology, and is produced by a collaborative, nonhierarchical collective of Contributing Editors. Featuring conversations between anthropologists as well as experiments in sonic ethnography, the channel sees itself as a platform which amplifies the polyphony of voices within cultural anthropology. Our episodes explore conceptual, methodological, and pedagogical issues across the discipline, while striving to make anthropology more widely accessible to all publics.
