Just as the major TV networks roll out their new fall schedules with great fanfare around this time every year, we in University News are happy to unveil our fall podcast lineup for the new “season” (and no, Jay Leno did not get the early slot).
Here’s what to expect:
• Athenaeum’s Author’s Spotlight, our newest series, features RIT authors discussing their latest works in their own words. Affiliated with a feature by the same name in our new print publication, Athenaeum, new episodes will be released each time an author is spotlighted in the newsletter. In the debut episode, Brian Schroeder, professor of philosophy, discusses Contemporary Italian Philosophy: Crossing the Borders of Ethics, Politics, and Religion.
• Studio 86 is back for a third season, featuring 15-minute newsmaker interviews. In this season’s first episode, Mary Lynn Broe, the Caroline Werner Gannett Professor, marks her third visit to Studio 86 to preview the Gannett Project and lecture series—beginning this year on Sept. 21 with a presentation by film producer Joslyn Barnes. If you’d like to make a suggestion for a Studio 86 guest, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• WITR Men’s Hockey Postgame Rewind returns soon for a second season. Each episode features game highlights, a scoring recap and a postgame interview with Head Coach Wayne Wilson. Special thanks to WITR-FM (89.7) and to longtime Tigers hockey announcer Chris Lerch of RIT Libraries for making this series possible.
Although our flagship podcast, Dateline: RIT, is not in the regular fall lineup, there might be occasional “special editions” of the radio-newscast-style series.
All RIT University News-produced podcasts are free and available on the University News Web site (see “Latest Podcasts”), via RSS feed, through Apple iTunes and iTunesU, and on the RIT News Facebook Fan Page and Dateline: RIT Group page.
Have a great weekend!
