New Podcast: Interview with Patrick James

Patrick JamesWell, sort of. I’ve been getting a surprising number of emails asking for new podcasts. This semester was a killer, and no one else on the team wants to spearhead the effort. I hope to do some more before all hades breaks loose next academic year.

But for now, I should note that my series over at New Books in Science Fiction & Fantasy has reemerged from its own hiatus — and with a cross-over podcast! In it, I interview USC’s Patrick James about his and Abigail E. Ruane‘s book, The International Relations of Middle-Earth: Learning from the Lord of the Rings.

Podcast No. 20: Interview with Phil Schrodt

Phil SchrodtThe twentieth Duck of Minerva podcast features Phil Schrodt of Pennsylvania State University. The interview includes Professor Schrodt’s views on a number of interesting topics, including the history of quantitative and computational conflict studies, his “seven deadly sins” project, advice for graduate students in political science, and an explanation of his decision to take up blogging.

This is the third podcast to only feature an mp3 version. I don’t get the sense that anyone is missing the m4a (“enhanced”) enhanced podcasts, but please correct me if I am mistaken on that point.

I should reiterate important change to procedures. From now on, the Minervacast feed will always host mp3 versions of the podcasts. The whiteoliphaunt feed will host m4a versions when they are available–otherwise this feed will also host mp3 versions.

Podcast No. 19: Interview with Daniel Drezner

DreznerFP2The nineteenth Duck of Minerva podcast features Daniel Drezner of Tufts University. Professor Drezner ruminates on, among other things his intellectual and educational background, his experiences as an academic blogger.

As was the case with last week’s episode, this podcast is a bit more “bare bones” than usual. I didn’t put in introductory remarks; I have not produced an m4a version at this time. The file located here is the mp3 version. Explanation: I am still a bit pressed for time right now. Also, I am very, very tired.

I should reiterate important change to procedures. From now on, the Minervacast feed will host mp3 versions of the podcasts. The whiteoliphaunt feed will host m4a versions of the podcast [note: see earlier remarks about the m4a version of this podcast]. Unless I hear otherwise, we will continue this approach into the foreseeable future.

Professor Guzzini discusses, among other things his intellectual and educational background, his important work on power in international affairs, realism, and geopolitics.

This podcast is a bit more “bare bones” than usual. I didn’t put in introductory remarks; I have not produced an m4a version at this time. The file located here is the mp3 version. Explanation: I am bit pressed for time right now.

Podcast No. 17: Interview with Iver Neumann

Iver NeumannThe seventeenth Duck of Minerva podcast features Iver Neumann of the London School of Economics. Professor Neumann discusses his intellectual and educational background and a small part of his copious academic output. Topics incude post-structuralism, policy engagement, the practice turn, popular culture and politics, and the Mongols.

I should reiterate important change to procedures. From now on, the Minervacast feed will host mp3 versions of the podcasts. The whiteoliphaunt feed will host m4a versions of the podcast. Unless I hear otherwise, we will continue this approach into the foreseeable future. I’ve heard of output problems on the mp3 versions, but I can’t reproduce

Note on Podcast No. 16

I recorded an interview with Rob Farley yesterday on academic blogging and the academic blogsphere. I had planned to put it up this evening but, like, I suspect, a lot of Americans, I’ve been a bit distracted for the last few hours.

The upshot is that I haven’t completed post-production and the podcast will likely not be available until tomorrow.

Podcast No. 13 – A Conversation with Nick Onuf (m4a)

The thirteenth Duck of Minerva podcast features Nicholas Onuf. Nick is one of the “founding parents” of contemporary constructivism. His book, World of Our Making: Rules and Rule in Social Theory and International Relation  — which has been reissued by Routledge — introduced the term to describe an approach to the study of world politics.

The podcast is wide-ranging — part of oral history, part interview, part discussion — such that I’ve had difficulty figuring out how to insert chapters. If you’re listening via m4a, you’ll see that the podcast has only a few chapter titles. “Enter Constructivism,” for example, contains not only information about World of Our Making but also about the state of the field in the 1980s, the rise of liberal institutionalism, and so on.

A Test of the New Podcast Feed

One reason we decided to move to WordPress is superior podcast support. Of course, there’s a learning curve involved. So this is a test run of the new podcast feed. If it works, you should have the option of playing my interview with Janice Bially Mattern directly from this post.  Continue reading
