Launching Life101 Podcast

I have launched a new project – a “This American Life”-style podcast about college life.  It is my favorite endeavor of the past 12 years.  I hope you enjoy it.  In the first episode, I go looking for the answer to a question that has bothered me for 12 years.  To find it, I had to break the law, crash a frat party, and shut down “the Ville.”  Along the way I meet a diverse cast of students seeking answers to their own questions.

About Me

University Distinguished Teaching Scholar and Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University.

Dubbed “the prophet of an education revolution” by the Kansas City Star and “the explainer” by Wired Magazine, Wesch is a recipient of the highly coveted “US Professor of the Year” Award from the Carnegie Foundation. After two years studying the implications of writing on a remote indigenous culture in the rain forest of Papua New Guinea, he turned his attention to the effects of social media and digital technology on global society and education. His videos on culture, technology, education, and information have been viewed over 20 million times, translated in over 20 languages, and are frequently featured at international film festivals and major academic conferences worldwide. Wesch has won several major awards for his work, including a Wired Magazine Rave Award, the John Culkin Award for Outstanding Praxis in Media Ecology, and he was named an Emerging Explorer by National Geographic.
