Episode #16: Scholarship 2.0

Darien and Dr. Tobias Wilson-Bates celebrate the retirement of Dr. Robin Bates (a.k.a. Dad) by bringing him onto the podcast. Along with being a professor and scholar, Robin Bates is also the author of a popular (if somewhat niche) literature blog Better Living Through Beowulf, which he has been running for the past 9 years. He shares how the Internet is shaping the ability of scholars to connect with people outside academe, and has the potential to reignite the appeal of classic literature.
