The State of Talk Podcast aims to connect ethnomethodological and conversation analytic research in a conversational way, by exploring the fascinating world of EM/CA studies.

We hope to inspire listeners by featuring exciting projects and discoveries from across the EM/CA community, and offering a space for researchers to talk about their approach, insights, data, and what motivates their work.

So far we have tried doing interviews and data sessions with prominent EM/CA scholars, but the podcast will try out new ideas and formats in its first few iterations, so if you would like to contribute in some way, we would love to hear from you! Please get in touch with pubs@conversationanalysis.org.
