Carnegie Mellon University Unveils Podcast Season on the History of Computing

Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Libraries launched the second season of Cut Pathways, a podcast from CMU’s Oral History Program. The six-episode season, titled “The Wild West of Computing,” looks at the history of computer science at CMU from 1956 to 1987. It is hosted by the program’s director, Katherine Barbera, and its production assistant, David Bernabo, and features special guests. CMU states, “The season covers the early computers housed in the basement of the business school—then known as the Graduate School of Industrial Administration (GSIA)—the influence of government funding, a personnel crisis in the early 1970s, the emergence of robotics and software in the 1980s, and more.”

“The Wild West of Computing” will release three episodes in December and three in January. Full episodes are available from all of the major podcasting platforms.
