In this episode, Christine and Michael finally meet face-to-face, and the banter is electric! Coming to you from the luxuriously appointed Aca-Media Command Centre in South Bend, Indiana, we investigate the Peabody awards and their connection to academia, including the amazing Peabody Archives that every media scholar should know about. Also, in our "Cinema Journal Presents" segment, we talk with Hollis Griffin about the challenges and joys of being a junior scholar in film and media studies at this moment in the history of the academy and the discipline. Bonus feature: Bill speaks! With a human voice!
