Laid back but very informative podcast about all things Ancient Egypt. Kara is a wonderful author and speaker and together with her co-host Jordan they do an amazing job of tying together Ancient Egypt with trends in the modern world.


Kara Cooney, Egyptologist from UCLA, discusses the ancient world, modern politics, and her life as a mother, wife, and ancient historian.

Episode Date
Divine Economic Right
Money 💰 rules. We often value wealth so much that we believe rich people to be touched by god, or fate, or whatever you believe in, to rule over us, that we must sacrifice ourselves (and our health) for the good of the economy, as if it were a religion. If economies failed during a king’s reign or a president’s tenure, then it must be his fault, divinely willed, in a sense. This week’s Afterlives podcast includes Jordan and me re-contextualizing a live recording during the darkest days of the 2020 pandemic. This episode is called Divine Economic Right. We hope you enjoy! ❤️   Show notes   Available to stream via your favorite podcasting service. Watch on YouTube.   Sign up for the newsletter @

Hi everyone! It took forever, but I finally created a podcast—a super laid-back, comfortable, energetic, fun podcast in which Jordan, my co-host, and I talk about whatever we want —the ancient world, power and politics, women’s studies, the doctoral path, even including all those third-rail topics that seem to draw the most attention on my social media these days. 

  Hopefully we can provide some fun and edifying banter when you want to be civically engaged but just can’t watch the news. It is my belief that looking at our world through the lens of antiquity can be the distance we need to see the forest for the trees, to analyze more clearly, and to strategize our next move. If you feel like you are the only person in the world who can see the whole game of cards falling down, we want you to know that you are not alone. We see it too. And we study those ancient times when it has happened before. And we want to talk all about it.
