169: Podcasting as Academic Scholarship with Las Doctoras, Renee Lemus and Cristina Rose
This week our special guests are Dra. Renee Lemus and Dra. Cristina Rose, also known as Las Doctoras, and they discuss the topic of how podcasting can be used as a medium for academic scholarship. Las Doctoras are acclaimed radical influencers, podcasters, writers, and Latina thought leaders. They are also creative partners in the Las Dras Podcast, Book Club, Sacred Writing Course, and their Saint Lunita Magazine.
In this episode we cover:
-The synchronous and meet-cute way that the two of them met in a shared parent toddler program only to realize they had so many things in common!
-Why they both chose not to pursue a traditional academic tenure-track trajectory
-How their Latina mom communities inspired them to bring what they do in the university into a more public space, which led them to working on several projects, including their courses, book club, magazine, and podcast
-How podcasting can be a form of public feminist scholarship as well as the benefits and challenges of this medium
