COVID-19 has birthed a new podcast club, which provides a unique way to talk about the things that make us human. The series is founded by sustainability scholar Neal Lester, founding director of Project Humanities.
It’s essentially an extension of the award-winning initiative’s event series and is designed to keep community conversations going during summer 2020. For this new programming, Project Humanities has selected popular podcasts that are accessible, provocative and linked to topics related to past and future Project Humanities events. These one-hour virtual conversations will be co-facilitated by a Project Humanities team member in partnership with community members, supporters and partners.
The hour-long podcast discussions will occur every other Thursday at 6 p.m. (MST) and will be broadcast via Zoom and Facebook Live. Topics include corporeal punishment and African American parenting, death and dying, youth mental health as related to academic pressures, menstrual equity, and police departments and neglected rape kits.
