Director and Curator of Special Collections and Archives Christian Goodwillie is a host of the recently-launched podcast, Communes USA.

Co-hosted with Dan Greenstone and Travis Chandler of the Francis W. Parker School in Chicago, Communes USA examines intentional communities from the past and present, drawing on the expertise of historians, and also the lived experiences of communitarians.

According to Goodwillie, the first three episodes were released at the end of March and in less than a month had surpassed 1,000 downloads. Additional installments have since been released and include a two-part episode about the Zendik Farm Arts Cooperative, and one about spiritualist John Murray Spear and his followers.
