What others are saying about “The JuntoCast”

“If you don’t already follow The JuntoCast, do yourself a favor and check it out. We’re big fans!” – Omohundro Institute for Early American History & Culture (Facebook)

“This is a wonderful, fun discussion among four scholars who know their history, express themselves clearly and concisely, listen to each other, enjoy each other’s company, and build upon each other’s contribution. This is not your typical boring round-table discussion. I’d invite these folks over for dinner in a heart beat.” – Charles Z. Silverman

“These guys really know their stuff  . . . [they] do a great job and I always learn something from their conversations..” – John Fea

“The podcast provides a superb synthesis of the existing literature on women and gender in early America. It should be ‘required listening’ for doctoral students preparing for orals.” – Rosemarie Zagarri on “Ep. 10: Gender in Early America”

“Although I’m not an early Americanist by training, the JuntoCast is excellent listening for anyone interested in the history of the early American republic. Their roundtables on historiographical discussions have to be the best out there right now (their episode on Edmund Morgan’s American Slavery, American Freedom is wonderful. It was like being back in a graduate seminar.)” – Jason Heppler

“If you’re not tuning into the monthly podcasts from @thejuntoblog you’re missing out.” – @GWLibrary (The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington)

“[The JuntoCast] provides deep insight into historical themes and topics in early American History. A great way for you to stay current on the latest scholarship or a place to share with students to have them go into more depth into topics you are discussing in class.” –Lance Mosier, 8th-grade teacher

“I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how much I appreciate/enjoy your podcasts. They are insightful and inquisitive, and have made me re-think some of my previous assumptions about certain books, while opening up lines of inquiry with books I have not read. I especially like that they help us early Americanists engage in a sort of ‘imagined community’ beyond text.” – Email from academic historian

“[Check out the podcast] and discover why they get rave reviews!” – University of Illinois-Springfield History Department
