From Academic Editing to Imagining Otherwise, Meet Cathy Hannabach

Elise and Cathy chat about how Ideas on Fire grew from a one-woman freelance operation to a full-fledged editing and indexing agency;  the behind-the-scenes work of running a company; the best parts of producing the Imagine Otherwise podcast; how the most vibrant movements happen at the intersections of art, activism, and academia; why writing a book not based on your dissertation is particularly freeing; why public scholarship is taking over the publishing industry (and needs to!); the long history of PhDs building vibrant careers beyond the academy; and why interdisciplinary and multimedia work can change the world.
