Podcast by Ottoman History Podcast. Ottoman History Podcast began in March of 2011 as an experiment aimed at finding an alternative form of academic production that explores new and more accessible media and allows for a collaborative approach. Our recorded interviews and lectures, while still largely academic in tone, provide serious and constructive academic discussion in an accessible and almost human format that is easy on the brain and eyes.

In this inaugural installment of our new environmental humanities series Climes, we talk to Bathsheba Demuth about the craft of environmental history. She reads selections from her new book Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait, and we discuss how hunting, capitalism, and communism shaped the Arctic region of Beringia.
