"Listening to Fire Knowledges in and around the Okanagan Valley" is a scholarly podcast consisting of a prologue, three main episodes, and an epilogue. This podcast series explores the ways that fire history informs present and future ways of living with and understanding fire in and around the Okanagan Valley. This podcast was produced as Judith Burr's master's thesis project, as part of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies program's Digital Arts & Humanities theme at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. It is a contribution to interdisciplinary and public conversations about life with fire. It centers on 14 oral history and expert interviews and two field recordings. Each interviewee holds specific and often plural forms of expertise and understandings of life with fire in and around the Okanagan. As the researcher, Burr's recorded conversations situate her in this project and allow her to share fire research in a dialogic, relational, listenable format contextualized by archival and secondary source fire history research. This podcast was created on the unceded territory of the Syilx Okanagan Nation.
