An Archaeology podcast featuring interviews with archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, and classicists. All united by a love of ancient history and prehistory. Hosted by Sebastian Wetherbee, a professional archaeologist, caver, climber, and antiquarian.
 
New episodes come out Thursdays for free, with 1-week early access for Wondery+ subscribers. Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.
 
Art and philosophy for an age of accelerating weirdness! Join paleontologist-futurist Michael Garfield and an avalanche of amazing guests for deep but irreverent discussions at the edge of the known and knowable: on science and the philosophy of it, prehistory and post-humanity and deep time, non-human agency and non-duality, science fiction and self-fulfilling prophecies, complex systems and sustainability (or lack thereof), psychedelics as a form of training for proliferating futures, art ...
 
Welcome to Paleo Bites, the weekly podcast hosted by Matthew Donald where we make dumb jokes, reference pop culture, derail like crazy, and oh yeah, discuss and rate prehistoric animals. Each episode Matthew and a rotating set of guest co-hosts talk about a different genus of primeval critter, explain basic stats, exchange plenty of banter, barely fact-check, and at the end, rate the creature one out of 65 million for any reason, including but not limited to sexiness, mana, and dexterity. So ...
 
This podcast starts at the beginning of Earth's prehistory and works forward through time. Bedrock will explore the first 90% of Earth’s past, a time known as the Precambrian Era. Before humans, before dinosaurs… there was the Precambrian. The Earth was an incredibly alien world, but not a dead one. Along the way, you will build a mental toolkit to see the world like a geologist. You will never look at a mountain, the moon, or pond scum in quite the same way again. Welcome to Bedrock. For tr ...
 
The Near East - the region known politically as the Middle East - is the home of both a long and eventful history as well as a much longer and fascinating prehistory. Here on Pre History I will cover the story of the Near East as we know it from the archaeological study of what people left behind as hunter-gatherers turned into farmers, as villages turned into cities, and as empires rose and fell.

Struggling Academics is a bi-monthly educational podcast for everyone interested in ideas, intellectual life and academic pursuits. At Struggling Academics, we deliberately venture into areas to which none of the hosts necessarily claim expertise. In each episode Dr. Andrasi (linguist), Dr. Clinnick (archaeologist), Dr. Pedersen (philosopher) & Dr. Vladescu (anthropologist/philologist) will discuss a particular topic with an uplifting and positive twist ranging from singular human experience ...
 
Stone Circles are one of the most enigmatic traces of the people that lives in Britain and Ireland thousands of years ago. But perhaps you have wondered what other types of archaeological sites and evidence we have from this period, what peoples’ lives were like thousands of years ago, or how archaeologists use the things they find to interpret life in the past? If you have, come and join the archaeologists from Project TIME as they embark on a new project to investigate Prehistoric Britain ...
 
Unraveling History one story at a time, usually suffering death and melancholy. Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a slave in ancient Rome? Perhaps to cross the fields and forests of prehistory on a march toward civilization. History studies death, oppression, slavery, monarchy, and all things terrible. We have a visceral reaction to history and understanding its place in our modern society. Will history lead us astray or are there more important lessons to be learned and gleaned ...

This episode breaks the ice with a bit of the pre-history of control theory. We discuss three iconic ancestors of the science of feedback, including water clocks developed by Ktesibios, the earliest known thermostat, and governors, a class of mechanical devices, which, without exaggeration, have enabled the first industrial Revolution in Britain. O…
 
"Do a podcast download! Ribbit!" - Slippy 2022 The Lore Boys are covering Star Fox, from its origins on a beefed-up SNES cartridge to it's latest release on... the SNES.

Over the past several decades, ancient DNA and other archaeological sciences have transformed our understanding of Europe in prehistory. Professor Kristian Kristiansen has worked with these new methods since the very beginning, and combines them with a deep grounding in both traditional archaeology and big-picture thinking about what it all means. …
 
As our world knits together, economic interdependencies change in both shape and nature. Supply chains, finance, labor, technological innovation, and geography interact in puzzling nonlinear ways. Can we step back far enough and see clearly enough to make sense of these interactions? Can we map the landscape of capability across scales? And what in…
 
The arid shoreline between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific seems like an unlikely place to host one of the world's earliest complex societies. But more than 5,000 years ago, the people of the Norte Chico Culture built cities, temples, and monuments that laid the foundation for thousands of years of Andean civilization. Patrick's book is now ava…

How did water arrive on planet Earth? Today, we learn just how much water Earth has (spoiler: probably not as much as you'd think), and where it came from in the first place. We'll take a joyride around the early solar system, learn how our stellar neighborhood is like a snow-capped mountain, and discover how the planet Jupiter might have played a …
 
(image source: https://images.dinosaurpictures.org/Leaellynasaura_new_118a.jpg) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Ben O’Regan discuss Leaellynasaura, a genus name damn hard to spell and even harder to say due to that blasted “e-a-e” at the beginning. From the Mid Cretaceous, this 4-foot ornithopod dealt with harsh winter conditions and frozen h…
 
In this episode we head south to look at one of the major cultures of the Southern Levant during the sixth millennium BCE - the Wadi Rabah. While there is a lot that we know about the Wadi Rabah culture, there is also a lot that we argue about. Really, a lot. If you have any questions or comments you can email me at prehistorypodcast@gmail.com or r…
 
or, “Why Isn’t There A Science of X?” or, “Alchemy is to Chemistry as Astrology is to…?” “If people don’t believe us after all the results we’ve produced, then they never will.” “It’s time for a new era, for someone to figure out what the implications of our results are for human culture, for future study, and — if the findings are correct — what t…
 
Mesoamerica is one of only a few places in the world where "civilization" - states, writing, cities, monumental building, and so on - emerged independently. The first society to do all this were the enigmatic Olmecs more than 3,000 years ago. Today the Olmecs are known mostly for their colossal carved stone heads, but they were the pioneers of a di…
 
When did Earth's crust form? It's easy to take the ground beneath our feet for granted, but the story of our crust's origins is one of the most hotly debated topics in Earth history. Today, we'll learn about how elements inside zircon crystals can help solve this mystery. In fact, the element hafnium was discovered inside a zircon by two researcher…
 
(image source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaeoindris) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Stephen Curro discuss Archaeoindris, the lemurs’ answer to Gigantopithecus, if that makes a lick of sense. From the Late Pleistocene, this 6-foot paleopropithecid lived its merry lemur life until roughly 2,000 years ago, dying around the same time as C…
 
For episode 46 of the podcast, we're joined by one of today's top broadcasters, Justin Webb. Justin's new book The Gift of a Radio: My Childhood and Other Train Wrecks chronicles his lifelong partnership with radio, from an unusual childhood improved by the arrival of an ITT Tiny Super radio, to anchoring the Today programme. But he's not the first…
 
In the digital era, data is practically the air we breathe. So why does everybody treat it like a product to be hoarded and sold at profit? How would our world change if Big Tech operated on assumptions and incentives more aligned with the needs of a healthy society? Are more data — or are bigger models — really better? As human beings scamper arou…

How is new crust made, and why isn't the Earth constantly expanding like a party balloon? To answer these questions, we'll track the life, death, and rebirth of Earth's surface. Stops along the way include the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a prize-fight between tectonic plates beneath New Zealand, and a stop for dessert on the Italian island of Vulcano. Extr…
 
(image source: https://images.dinosaurpictures.org/500px-Giraffatitan_3380.jpg) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Laura Owsley discuss Giraffatitan, an African longneck that paleontologists previously confused with Brachiosaurus, which is odd, as its name clearly says it’s a titanic giraffe. From the Late Jurassic, this 70-foot sauropod lays cl…
 
FINALLY an episode that's just me hanging out with someone, slurping down drinks and shooting the shit! Me and Dan solve all the world's problems, from his troubling lack of Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards to how everyone can crash at my place in Portugal this summer, to what it was like to fly maskless on a plane, how Ray Charles loved genev…
 
Don't waste another minute here. Go read the full show notes on Patreon! Be forewarned: This latest episode is some extremely heady stuff. But thankfully, it's also full of heart and soul... Back in February, Jonathan Rowson posted two clips (here and here) from his latest in-progress writing tlimito Twitter, where it succeeded in baiting a bunch o…
 
The Eurasian steppe is central to grasping the past 5,000 years of human history, and in the past couple of decades, new tools of analysis have transformed our understanding of the place and its importance. Professor Michael Frachetti has developed and applied a whole series of innovative approaches to understanding the people of the Bronze Age ste…

The idea of plate tectonics is the cornerstone of modern geology. But it wasn't always that way, and it wasn't an easy idea to sell. Today, we'll meet two scientists who faced ridicule for proposing continental drift: a German climatologist and an American cartographer, the greatest of her generation. We'll also meet a lost expedition to Greenland,…
 
(image source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyostegalia) Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Natasha Krech discuss Ichthyostega, one of the first vertebrates to crawl onto land, so if you hate modern things like war, taxes, or reality shows, you can blame this guy. From the Late Devonian, this 5-foot stegocephalian inadvertently paved the pa…
 
The world is unfair — but how much of that unfairness is inevitable, and how much is just contingency? After centuries of efforts to arrive at formal theories of history, society, and economics, most of us still believe and act on what amounts to myth. Our predecessors can’t be faulted for their lack of data, but in 2022 we have superior resources …
 
Four thousand years ago, the sprawling cities of the Indus Valley Civilization dominated much of South Asia; a millennium after that, however, the cities were in ruins, and new migrants ultimately deriving their ancestry from the Eurasian steppe had established themselves throughout much of the region. These new arrivals have become known as Indo-A…

What is the oldest thing on our planet? How old is it, and where was it found? Today, we tell the story of a worldwide, decades-long hunt for a single grain of sand. We'll journey to underground magma chambers, the sun-baked Australian Outback, and the lair of a giant shrimp. Extra credit: Let a handful of sand run through your fingers, or go press…
