Aca-Media Podcast Episode 70: Jordan Sjol on Medium Specificity
If you’re feeling sluggish from the holiday season, press play on this rich conversation between Jonathan Nichols-Pethick and Jordan Sjol to get your brain sparked and ready for a new year of smart conversations about media. The two DePauw colleagues talk about Sjol’s JCMS article, “A Diachronic, Scale-Flexible, Relational, Perspectival Operation: In Defense of (Always-Reforming) Medium Specificity” (don’t worry, they break it down word-by-word), as well as the recent feature film that Sjol co-wrote, How to Blow Up a Pipeline. Then Chris and Michael chat about how to name a department and how not to title a podcast.
