Welcome to the A Story of Us Podcast!
We are the Ohio State University’s Department of Anthropology Graduate Students.
Anthropology is the study of the biology, society, and culture of humans and their nearest biological relatives, past and present. Anthropologists focus on the nature and history of the human condition in all times and in all places, addressing a wide range of evolutionary and behavioral issues of interest to the social and biological sciences.
We hope this podcast will present anthropology in an engaging way to explain why it is an exciting and evolving field.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the A Story of Us podcast is to increase public understanding and access to the field of anthropology. We seek to identify who anthropologists are, what we study, and how we perform our research. We also seek to explain why anthropology is relevant to understanding diversity, our origins, human variation, and behavior. All episodes are produced in a way that is understandable to listeners who have little to no anthropology background.
Our mission is primarily achieved through semester-long series which seek to identify the relationships among the anthropological subfields within the context of an overarching theme. Each series consists of content (~15 minutes) and conversation episodes (~30 minutes) that bring together major concepts, research topics, and department members.
All our podcasts and resources will be free and open for use in personal, professional, and educational settings. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact us below. If you would like to request a bonus episode, please fill out this form.
