The Surfing Historian, hosted by Jason Old, brings together international scholars from an eclectic range of academic fields, among them, humanities, social sciences, and surf studies (yes, that's a real field) to share their most recent research. Jason is a historian, surfer, world traveler, and college professor, with connections to academics doing interesting and noteworthy work in their respective fields—many of whom are surfers themselves! In this podcast, Jason explores a wide range of thought-provoking topics with his friends and colleagues, diving deeper into their latest research, and providing them with a platform to share their insights and findings. We’ll steer clear of the pretentious jargon that turns many non-academics away. These episodes are for surfers, historians, surf-historians, and everyone in between. So paddle out with Jason and his colleagues as they glide through the world of academia!
