Have you ever wondered why we do some of the weird things we do? Have you ever wondered why the world works the way it does? Sociologists wonder the same things and we conduct scientific research to find the answers.
Welcome to Making the Familiar Strange, a podcast about sociology for non-sociologists. Here we’ll discuss some of the social forces that impact all of us on a daily basis?
Meet your host, Dr. Erin Baker. She'll tell you a little bit about sociology, explain the purpose of this podcast, and how (and why) sociologists make the familiar strange.
LINKS, RESOURCES, & INFORMATION:
Books mentioned in the podcast can be found on our GoodReads.

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.
