I recently had the distinct pleasure to appear on John Heckman’s podcast: The Tattooed Historian Show. We had a great talk about traditional v. non-traditional paths in academia, Twitter and other social media platforms, living history, and ways to reach more people who love the discipline. John and I have known each other for a while now…and he makes a regular appearance on my Gettysburg field trip each Spring, where he takes my kids on a tour through the 20th-century history of the battlefield park. You might also have heard John on an episode of The Rogue Historian a year or so back.

You can listen to our most recent talk from your desktop or on Spotify

John is most certainly passionate about this field and his work is first rate - be sure to follow his show and check him out on Twitter and Insta.

With compliments,

Keith
