Podcast Episode 19 - Ancient Office Hours

"Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair."

This week on the podcast we're doing something a little different. I'm presenting an episode of a podcast I think you'll enjoy - Ancient Office Hours by the Ozymandias Project.

If you love ancient times and all the great and not so great things that happened, Ancient Office Hours Podcast is your big chance. Most importantly, if you ever wanted to pursue a career in Classics (from academia, to stand up, to video games!), this will give you the insider's view. Episodes are released every two weeks.

Today I’m presenting their interview with Dr. Andrew Reinhard, an archaeologist and Director of Publications at the American Numismatic Society. His career in Classics is a great story. Dr. Reinhard has had quite the interesting career, to say the least. He has also pioneered archeogaming, and discusses the challenges of being a historian who works with gaming companies.

Take a listen to this fascinating episode of Ancient Office Hours.

Join history nerd and classicist extraordinaire, Lexie Henning, as she chats with thought leaders in academia and the entertainment industry about how they got into their field, their current research/projects, and how the ancient world inspires them. 

Together they strive to connect modern societies to ancient worlds, examine the practicality of going into ancient studies, and talk about why it’s important to fund the humanities. Their goal is to increase access to information about the ancient world and the people who are influenced by it.
