#263 Can You Prepare for an Interview?

 I recently received this feedback and questions from a fan of the CRM Arch Podcast:I've been listening to the show for a few months now and I have to say, you guys rock! I'm just getting started with CRM and every show, blog, and book of yours that I've read have been insanely helpful. Episode 65 in particular - I actually applied to the job that you mentioned, and I too was a bit thrown off by the posting but sent it off anyway since I live in Ohio and California winters don't sound so bad.

Lubeck 1500th Anniversary

For the last couple of year we have been working in Tallinn, Estonia at St Nicholas church. The work consisted of taking photos and documenting the altarpiece by the German painter Hermen Rode. As well as working in Tallinn, we visited Rode’s home town of Lubeck where we recorded the altarpiece there. In few days there will be exhibition opening in Lubeck’s St Anne museum to celebrate the city’s 1500th anniversary.

#262 Business, CRM Archaeology, or Both?

  I recently received a question from a fan of the CRM Archaeology Podcast Network over at the Archaeology Podcast Network's page (a subsidiary of DIGTECH.media). Here is the question: I am a senior Business Management major at the University of Central Arkansas. Recently I've found a strong interest in Anthropology and want to carry it over into my career.

#261 What Apple’s Sept Event Means for Archaeology

On September 9, 2015, Apple held their annual Fall product announcement event. They have so many product lines now that they didn’t spend the first 30 minutes talking about how awesome they are and how much money they’re making. Tim Cook, Apple CEO, just went right into new stuff. I’m not going to cover everything in this post - just the stuff I think is beneficial to archaeologists and archaeology.

#258 Passion and Dedication

 I had called this the Passion of Christ(opher) originally. However, I realized that I shouldn't draw parallels to the son of a god when I am, in fact, a god myself. Ha!I can be pretty intense. Some people that know me would say I'm a passionless robot and others would say I'm hot-headed and intense. There isn't really an in-between with me. Such is life. I'm working on swinging more to the middle, but, it's apparently not in my nature.
