Anthropological Airwaves is a podcast that explores the craft of anthropology in all of its forms. Building on the journal’s commitment to four-field, multimodal research, the podcast hosts conversations about anthropological projects—from fieldwork and publishing to the discipline’s role in public debates. By demystifying the craft of anthropology, the podcast broaches a series of fundamental questions about past, present, and future disciplinary practice, and charts new paths for anthropological engagement.

In Episode 8, we catch up with Dr. Laurence Ralph (Harvard), member of the American Anthropologist editorial board and associate editor of Transforming Anthropology, at the AAAs to talk about his ethnographic work on violence, injury, and healing on Chicago’s South Side.
