New podcast episode! Some of the core facets behind public history practice are accessibility and community access. And preserved heritage should be accessible to all.

As a note, I do also realize the irony of talking about accessibility on a podcast for which transcripts are not available. I’m currently thinking about transcription options for the audio.
