Welcome to a very special edition of The Beth Zemsky Podcast! For episode 7, we venture deep into the caverns below the University of Minnesota on an epic quest to officially archive the first 6 episodes of The Beth Zemsky Podcast, and to commemorate Episode 100 of The Twin Cities Pride Podcast. For our expedition, we bring along Beth’s longtime friend and colleague, Lisa Vecoli, Curator of The Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies, to help us tell the story of how this archive, that documents and preserves LGBT culture and movement building, came into being.
We also talk about the importance of archiving and other forms of cultural work as vital to supporting long-term social change.
We close the episode setting the stage for the next 6 episodes of the Beth Zemsky Podcast by talking a little about where we’ve been so far and about where all of the deep intersectional movement energy in our country right now might be leading us.
