Subscribe to the show

Imagine Otherwise is a podcast about bridging art, activism, and academia to build more just futures.

Created and hosted by Cathy Hannabach and produced by Ideas on Fire, Imagine Otherwise features interviews with scholars, cultural producers, dancers, editors, artists, and activists who are building new worlds.

Cathy created the show in 2016 to both demonstrate the vibrant public voice that interdisciplinary scholars can have beyond the academy as well as to inspire new generations of thinkers.

Over the past 9 years, episodes have been taught in a wide array of university classrooms, been featured in international art exhibits, and taken Cathy to live tapings at venues as diverse as feminist circus art performances, scholarly conferences, and a culture lab on convergence.

The show’s programming partners have included the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, the Cultural Studies Association, the Association for Asian American Studies, and more.
