A podcast about celebrating humanities scholars who work in alternative-to-academia (“alt-ac”) careers.
Each episode features a guest who has completed substantive postgraduate education in the humanities and who currently works in an alt-ac career. By listening to their stories, this podcast aims to shed light on life beyond the academe, what scholarship can do in the broader world, as well as how graduate training in the humanities helps or fails to help us prepare for the path off campus. Listen to the entire podcast here.
In episode 2, I interview Dr. Nathan Fulton, a philosopher-turned-semantic architect currently working at Indeed.com.
In episode 1, I interviewed Dr. Polo Camacho, a philosopher and bioethicist currently working as a Program Manager and Health Ethics Education Promoter at the Center for Practical Bioethics in Kansas City.

I’m always looking for guests on the podcast. If you are or know someone who 1) have done at least 3 years of doctoral training in the humanities, 2) currently work in an alt-ac career which does not require significant retraining, and 3) may be interested in sharing your/their perspective with me, please contact me at email@example.com.
