More and more, podcasts are appearing on university syllabi. But is it possible to conduct an entire university course that revolves around the podcast medium? In this special episode, we sit down with Dana Sajdi and a class of over 20 students at Boston College who are enrolled in an experimental course entitled "Podcasting the Ottomans." In our conversation, we take a look inside the syllabus of a course in Ottoman history that relies primarily on episodes of Ottoman History Podcast, and we get feedback from students about their daily engagement with the podcast medium and some of the most popular episodes of our program. Our student guests also discuss their short-form podcast final projects and reflect on the joys of learning through podcasts.
