For our 30th episode, we reflect on what we’ve learned from this podcast thirty episodes in and what podcasting as a genre offers academia in terms of embodied scholarship and archived, accessible knowledge production.
This episode was recorded on October 5. Please be aware that, because we recorded via Zoom, there may be occasional audio hiccups. Our theme song is “4 am” by Makaih Beats. You can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher and follow us on Twitter @writingremixpod.

“When you publish an essay or when you give a conference talk, you’re coming to that piece having already formulated your ideas, and you’re then sharing them with a public…What I’ve discovered through the course of doing this podcast is that because we’re having conversations…I’m actually formulating those thoughts in the moment, and that dialogue is helping me refine my ideas. So I may come to the episode with some ideas in mind, but it it’s in the course of having that conversation that I can arrive at new ones. I love that collaborative aspect of it.” @KatieARobisonTweet
