Wisconsin Humanities has a brand-new podcast!
Have you ever wondered what happens after a project receives Wisconsin Humanities funding? What do ‘the humanities’ look like when real people get to work with an idea that impacts real communities in our state?
We have a new podcast called Human Powered that shares some of these incredible stories from around the state. Through in-depth storytelling, we are excited to introduce you to people like Marvin Defoe and Edwina Buffalo-Reyes, members of the Red Cliff band of Lake Superior Ojibwe in Bayfield County, and share the story of how their collaboration with archaeologists is transforming the way artifacts are treated and interpreted.
And people like Clinton Bagstad and Ryan McGuire, a farmer and a firefighter who have experienced extreme and destructive floods in the Southeastern part of the state. Their stories are powerful, and historians and conservation biologists believe that they might just hold the key for creating a sustainable future in the Driftless — and beyond!
From navigating the aftermaths of the Driftless Region’s life-altering floods to expanding access communities have to healthy and homegrown foods, each narrative captures the way hope drives us forward. Each of the six episodes is about 30 minutes long, and you can listen on our website where we also have really cool extra photos, videos, and information. Or you can find Human Powered wherever you get your podcasts. Subscribe today!
