I am so very thankful for everyone that supported (and continue to support) this project.
First of all, thank you to each of my guests for so generously agreeing to talk with me and share their expertise and perspectives. I learned so much from everyone and have such admiration for their work.
A big thank you also goes to my advisor, Dr. Jutta Treviranus, for her patience and encouragement while I spiraled through various cycles of self-doubt and hesitation and for saying, “Yes, do that” when I tentatively brought up podcasting.
Thank you to everyone in my cohort. I learned so much from everyone and will miss our Slack rants. I wish we had been able to meet in person again before this degree finished.
Thank you to Amanda Coolidge, my supervisor at BCcampus, for her support and encouragement before and throughout this degree. Thank you also to my colleague at BCcampus Tim Carson for generously lending me a good quality microphone and sharing resources on how to get started with podcasting.
And thank you to Madeline Peacock for transcribing most of the episodes!
I’d also like to express my gratitude for the many people whose work influenced how I thought about this project and continue to inspire me:
- Dr. Hannah McGregor, specifically her Secret Feminist Agenda podcast. I learned so much through that podcast, both in terms of various ways of understanding and practicing feminism and the possibility of podcasting as a medium for academic communication.
- Jess Mitchell, specifically for her 2018 OpenEd Keynote titled “The Ethical Edges: What is Our Tolerance for Failure? Who are we Comfortable Leaving Behind?“
- Tara Robertson, specifically her talk at OpenCon 2017 where she talked about the real harms that exclusion and uncritical adoption of open practices can result in: Who is Missing?.
