Podcast – The Burning Archive

In April 2021 I launched a podcast of The Burning Archive on Anchor. Thanks Anchor! Thanks Spotify!

The Burning Archive

The Burning Archive is about all things history and culture, and talks about how the past is not dead – the past is not even past (Credit: William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun).

You can listen to The Burning Archive podcast on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Google podcasts, Radio Public and Pocket Casts.

Leave us a review or comment, and I promise to improve the quality over time.

The Burning Archive podcast is also on twitter (regrettably, at least for now) at @ArchiveBurning.

Episode 1 (14 April 2021) Introducing a sense of history

In this first episode of The Burning Archive podcast, historian, writer and failed bureaucrat, Dr Jeff Rich, talks about why it is important to have a sense of history to live well in the present, and some of the big history trends shaping our lives today.

Episode 2 (23 April 2021) Empire in Denial

In this second episode of The Burning Archive podcast, Dr Jeff Rich talks about how the United States of America is an empire in denial, and how we can respond in our daily lives to the emperor high in heaven – at least those of us in the faraway provinces.
