On this episode of ALiRP, we interview our friend and colleague, Dr. Madeline Mackie. Dr. Mackie just began her position as an assistant professor at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.

Dr. Mackie studies Paleoindian lifeways and big game hunting, as well as ochre hand sprays. We met Dr. Mackie at the University of Wyoming, where she dealt with our numerous shenanigans.

We start off by talking about her experiences growing up in Southern California and then delve into her MA research on hand sprays in Wyoming. Dr. Mackie then talks about the La Prele Mammoth site and we kind of nerd out about the finds. She then talks about post-doc life and the jobs market.
