Welcome to Isn’t That Spatial! This is a podcast dedicated to casual (so casual) topics in geography and the spatial component of… whatever.

This first episode (!) discusses the geography of the classic dive bar – its history, its urban and rural iterations, and how it currently fits (or doesn’t) into our contemporary urban fabric. But it’s very casual. Very breezy.

I’ll always post my show notes here on this website, including links to sources and relevant articles.

If you have a topic you think would be very Isn’t That Spatial to explore, please let me know in the comments!
