The National Association of Practicing Anthropologists announces a new resource for students, instructors, and new professionals: a pilot series of 8 podcast interviews exploring career trajectories with a diverse group of veteran practitioner anthropologists. These were recorded in 2013-2014 to discuss how practitioners got from grad school to career goals, and how they apply anthropology in their professions.
