History Lab Podcast Launched
The Australian Centre for Public History at UTS and 2SER 107.3 have come together to create History Lab, Australia’s first investigative history podcast, breathing life into public history and bringing it to new audiences. History Lab is about exploring the gaps between us and the past and invites listeners to participate in the making of history. Examining the legacies the past leaves in the present, it asks listeners to think about the silences, the unknowns and the unknowables in the stories we tell.
The first episode was launched on Wednesday 30 May and the series is available now on all podcast apps. The next episode will be podcast on 13 June. History Lab is also launching as a podcasting engagement platform for historians working in and outside of universities across the country.
And that’s not all! If you are keen to be a part of, and contribute to, this exciting new venture, History Lab is also seeking episode proposals from historians of all stripes. Submissions for Series 2 close 27 July 2018.
