I'm continuing to really enjoy working with audio storytelling and podcasts at Pacific Lutheran University, where I serve as the Media and Content Manager in the Division of Marketing and Communications. These are three recent projects in particular that I'm particularly proud of.
1. Lutes in the Legislature: Mega talented PLU photographer John Froschauer (John's website) and I visited Olympia to create a collection of audio recordings and photographs of PLU students and alumni working at the state capitol.
2. Interview With PLU Religion Professor: I had the opportunity to interview PLU faculty member Seth Dowland about his new book "Family Values and the Rise Of The Christian Right."
3. Open To Interpretation: Interpret: OTI is a podcast series devoted to exploring the meanings and implications of words commonly used in the news, on social media and on college campuses. This episode is one of my favorites we've done to date. Host Amy Young and guests Michael Zbaraschuk and Kane Anderson do a great job of making space for humor and moments of jest without venturing from the episode's theme word (interpret) and core discussion.
