In this episode Saronik interviews Kim about her work day.

There’s a discussion of Kant’s theory of aesthetic judgement towards the end.

John’s Apples

In this episode John tells a story about the apple trees he found in Ithaca, while he was researching Liberty Hyde Bailey this summer.
He shared it during the recording session in which John, Chad, and Kim discussed the archive.
The story didn’t fit into the Archives 1 podcast, but we loved it so much, we made it into a bonus track.

John kept a blog during his summer in the archives. You can read it here: https://medium.com/@johnlinstrom.

Archives 1

John and Chad discuss their experiences in archives.  Kim acts as moderator.

John wrote a blog about his experiences in the Liberty Hyde Bailey archives this summer, and his friend John Stempien made a video.
