Learning Forensics, Applying Anthropology with Gabriella Campbell

Learning Forensics, Applying Anthropology with Gabriella Campbell

It's not everyday I get to talk with other anthropology podcasters, and even more infrequently that I get to talk with undergraduate anthropology podcasters. I'm joined on the show today by Gabriella Campbell, Gabriella is a senior at University of California Santa Barbara where she focuses on forensic anthropology, both contemporary and ancient. She's also the creator and host of That Anthro Podcast, a weekly interview show that explores the world of bioarchaeology, bones, forensics and more. Gabriella and I dig into what it's like to work in forensics while learning the trade. This includes some crucial and fascinating forensic recovery work she’s doing in response to the Monteceto mudslides.

We dig into:

Applying forensic anthropology to the Montecito mudslides
Contemporary forensics vs ancient forensics
How to teach anthro earlier in kids' education, early education projects
On podcasting, creativity and learning to trust our instincts
Advice for undergrads - from an undergrad
