Digital Humanities: Podcast Edition

Note: In listening to podcasts, I try my best to listen to current publications rather than those which are 2+ years old, so all of the below are either intermittently updated, regularly updated, or focus on theory rather than practice. There are many many other podcasts out there which have fantastic content but are no longer updated.

Also, this is not a list of the “best” or “definitive” podcasts, just the ones that I personally enjoy listening to the most. If you would like to make a recommendation in the comments or discuss this list, please do so! I’d love to read your thoughts.
