Carie Little Hersh first heard about the field of anthropology in college, when she signed up for a class called “Language and Culture” in the anthropology department at the University of Virginia. Now, as assistant teaching professor in sociology and anthropology at Northeastern, she produces a podcast called “Anthropologist on the Street” so that others can discover how the discipline touches on so many parts of life.

Three months into the series, “Anthropologist on the Street” has tackled issues as diverse as  using prisoners to fight wildfiresthe physical and emotional effects of racismthe politics of transgender healthwhat the remains of ancient civilizations say about its culture, and more. Hersh also runs a complementary blog, “relevANTH,” that she updates with nuggets from each show.
