CulturalStudies with Toby Miller

March 7, 2011

Toby Miller, Chair of Media and Cultural Studies at UC Riverside, chatted with me over tofu for his podcast, CULTURALSTUDIES. Since last summer, Toby has recorded meandering, lively and detailed conversations with scholars, artists, and activists and he releases them in unedited real time on his podcast to 1000 or so subscribers, all probably three men and their dog in Sweden, according to Toby.

Sitting over lunch with just his shiny laptop open doing the quiet work of recording us—slurps, clinks, and all—I was reminded about the beauty of these kinds of DIY, “hand-made” practices (something we discuss in relation to my video-book’s fears about YouTube and the corporatization of “DIY”) enabled by technology. We discuss this, revolution, AIDS video activism and more. Hope you’ll take a listen.
