About The Dirt

Hi! And welcome to The Dirt! We are a podcast that brings stories from archaeology and anthropology straight to your ears. Every week, we tackle one topic, ranging from Homo floresiensis to hoaxes to honey to handaxes—everything awe-inspiring, weird, wonderful, mysterious, and groundbreaking that the study of our shared human past has to offer, from all over the world. We're here to edutain: you'll laugh, you'll go ewwwww, and above all you'll learn something, no matter your experience with archaeology.

Find out even more about us-- and the full catalog of our weekly regular show-- over at our home on the web!
