Take a seat and come listen to our most recent episode on ethics in fieldwork with Dr Jamila Rodrigues of the University of Birmingham and Dr Luisa Schneider of the Max Planck Institute in Halle (Salle), Germany.

Hello C&C listeners!

C&C is looking to increase its audience size and is debating moving from SoundCloud to Luminary or Patreon. Since all of our staff (and contributors) work on a voluntary basis, it would be nice to be able to give back to those individuals who have put aside extra working hours to make this podcast and blog possible. If you could share us your thoughts re: Luminary or Patreon (or any other contenders), we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank YOU from all of us at Coffee & Cocktails!
