Over 7,000 downloads….117 episodes….4 shows and counting…We do Podcasts.

To put it simply, podcasting is a type of radio show which allows access to a broad range of information through downloads on portable devices. Podcasts are easy to create: a few microphones, a recording device, a topic, and we are in business…in our studio in White Hall.  All somebody needs to listen to it is a phone (or computer) and an internet connection. Students, faculty, and staff can listen in the car, at home, at work, or wherever they may be. Podcasting provides community engagement in a small, portable package.
