What Are You Going To Do With That? - A Podcast from the National Humanities Alliance
We are excited to announce a new season of What Are You Going to Do with That?, a podcast where we explore everyday folks’ decisions to study the humanities as undergraduates and their pathways to fulfilling careers!
This podcast is designed for students, as well as those who advise them, including parents, academic advisors, career counseling staff, and high school teachers and guidance counselors. Please spread the word!
The new season features 8 stories about diverse professionals with humanities backgrounds who not only do well for themselves but do good for the world. It is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever else you may get your podcasts.
- Advance Equality Debo Adegbile shares how studying the humanities prepared him for a successful legal career through which he has fought for justice and equal opportunity for all citizens. He describes how following his interests in the humanities imparted the skills, values, and a breadth of perspective that empowered him to take on some of our society’s most complex issues, including voting rights, police reform, and bias in artificial intelligence.
- Build a Social Enterprise Lauren McCraney shares how returning to school to pursue her passion for the humanities catapulted her to an inspiring second career as founder of Woven Women Collective, a social enterprise that provides Guatemalan women with sustainable work and social support while also preserving the artisanal textile production traditions these communities have developed over generations.
- Elevate Cultural Institutions Meet Hannah Hethmon, creator of more than a dozen podcasts that make the crucial work of cultural organizations come alive. Hannah describes how pursuing her love of literature and history cultivated the passion, skills, and drive necessary to build a successful and fulfilling enterprise. Her story shows how studying the humanities positions you to seize unanticipated professional opportunities as they emerge.
We hope you’ll listen and share it with others!
