A Very Square Peg: A Podcast Series about Polymath Robert Eisler

Brian Collins, the Drs. Ram and Sushila Gawande Chair in Indian Religion and Philosophy at Ohio University, is producing a podcast about the 20th-century scholar of religion and polymath Robert Eisler, a background figure in the stories of Carl Jung, Mircea Eliade, and Gershom Scholem, who reconstructed a description of Jesus that provoked outrage in the 1930s. Its 10-episode run began June 9 with new episodes every Tuesday.
