Any academics/librarians do podcasting around here?

@archivist my better half has been interested in it. you might like her ideas? (i can connect you two but i think y'all know each other)

@archivist @anarchivist no I love ‘em, and am always on the lookout for new ones for my commute. I guess that was my somewhat passive aggressive way of asking where the podcast was :-)

@inkdroid @anarchivist i keep talking a big game about making a projectARCC podcast. I think it'll actually happen now that I've deleted the social media site that I think people are not allowed to say out loud on here

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
