Episode #42: Sonic Field Notes From the World’s Longest Race


Making the Strange Familiar and the Familiar Strange

In the summer of 2013, Corrina Laughin and Kevin Gotkin studied a spiritual community. An odd spiritual community, it turns out, because they organize many ultra-long-distance races, including the world’s longest footrace. Corrina and Kevin conducted an ethnography of this race, called the 3,100 Mile Self-Transcendence Race. Here, they offer us “sonic field notes” from their research.
