Uncorked History: A New Adventure

Uncorked History you ask? The rumors you’ve heard* are true! My colleague and friend, Kelly Pollock (@FeministKelly), will join me (@L_Historienne) as co-host of a new livestream podcast/webinar series called Uncorked History! On the show we will interview experts in the world of beer/wine/spirits and historians of all kinds, and we’re hoping to do pairings where it makes sense to do so. You can find us over on https://uncorkedhistory.com/ or on Twitter @UncorkedHistory! Think you might want to join us on this adventure? Email us at uncorkedhistory@gmail.com! Uncorked History is particularly interested in speaking to those who are considered marginalized in the world of alcohol and history.

*Not so much rumors as a ton of tweets Kelly and I sent out.

Why us?

Dr. Kelly Pollock

Kelly Pollock, M.A.

Kelly has always been the kind of person who asks questions — lots of questions — to anyone who will listen and answer. With a BA in Religious Studies from Northwestern University and an MA in Religious Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara (where she wrote a thesis on feminist witches), Kelly has turned her questioning to politics and history where she digs deep into stories that aren’t getting enough attention. 

By day Kelly is Dean of Students in the Division of the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago, where she has worked since 2004. 

Kelly lives on the southside of Chicago with her husband, two kids, and two cats. When she’s not podcasting or working you can find Kelly with knitting needles in her hands. If she could knit and podcast at the same time she would.
