Humanities in the Public Media

I was reading the second article in the Crisis in Humanities series on the Public History Commons, and I came upon the link to August 2013 Richard Brodhead on Colbert and had to share here:

…Which also made me remember my favorite clip on Colbert in recent viewing history… of Theaster Gates.  Colbert asked if he is a cult leader to which he responds, “WEEEELLLL…”

(My weird mind wonders these things while watching these clips– If we get cool public historians some play on Colbert, could we increase enrollment in grad programs?  Could we transfer that increase in interest to increased funding?)
