Aug 26, 2021

Dr. Darin Waters will take over next month as North Carolina's Deputy Secretary for Archives and History.  The job in the state department of Natural and Cultural Resources comes with many responsibilities, including being North Carolina's state historian.

Since 2017, Dr. Waters has co-hosted The Waters & Harvey Show with his former UNC Asheville colleague Dr. Marcus Harvey on Blue Ridge Public Radio.  As new episodes of the show are released, Dr. Waters took some time to talk with BPR's Matt Bush to discuss his new job, and his approach to telling and teaching history.
