Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Suspension of a podcasting best friend

I was extremely saddened to learn this week (I guess I’m a bit slow on the news, since this was announced in May) that one of my favorite podcasts, “Talking History” from the Organization of American Historians, has been suspended because of budget cutbacks. I absolutely LOVE this weekly podcast series. It has been one of my favorites to listen to for over a year when I take longer trips in the car. This week I listened to past episodes on “U.S. Grand Strategy and the Cold War” and “1491.” The latter was a podcast from 2005, the one on The Cold War was the last podcast for 2006. I frequently listen to older episodes and since I had not heard the last one, I didn’t “get the word” that the series has been suspended.

One positive thing is that there are MANY past episodes still available that I have not heard previously, so I’ll likely continue to “mine” those for good historical nuggets. I’m so sad they won’t be podcasting new episodes, though! Dr. Bryan Le Beau is one of my podcasting role models! 🙂
