From 1980 to 1997, the National Humanities Center produced the popular weekly radio show Soundings. Now, through a partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Libraries and RENCI (Renaissance Computing Institute), the National Humanities Center is once again able to share Soundings with the public via this website. As a collection, the Soundings episodes represent rich documentation of intellectual history in the last quarter of the twentieth century. The audio archive contained in this website remains a living record of one of the most innovative, insightful, and scholarly radio shows ever produced. Among those interviewed by Soundings host and producer Wayne Pond were university professors in the humanities and sciences, journalists, poets, novelists, documentary film makers, musicians, state governors, members of Congress, and leaders of technological innovation. The microphone captured their voices as they spoke passionately about their work in the arts, classics, education, ethics, literature, religion, the South, world histories, politics, music, philosophy, and more. Each half-hour program features interviews with scholars and writers about their work and interests in the humanities and related disciplines. The 862 unique episodes aired on more than 350 radio stations throughout the country and the Armed Forces Radio Network.
