Every day, we move through the world impacted by the social structures we've created. Sociologists use rigorous scientific research to examine how the social structures you interact with on a daily basis impact your life, possibly in ways you hadn't thought of. This is finding the strange in the familiar. Every episode, Dr. Erin Baker and a co-host who isn't in the field will be interviewing other sociologists about their work. Keep listening to learn how to Make the Familiar Strange. Music by Jonathan Franco Music: Podcast editing by Joe Giese:
