The episode and future episodes can be found on the Inside Stout page at Buzzsprout, a podcast platform. Episodes also will be archived on Buzzsprout.
The goal of the podcast is to provide personal, in-depth accounts of life at Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University through the voices of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university.
“Inside Stout provides a fresh way to share the stories of how UW-Stout positively impacts the lives of students, faculty, staff, west-central Wisconsin and the world,” said Gary Schuster, interim director of Marketing and Communications. “The conversational format tells Stout stories in greater detail. On Inside Stout, you’ll hear the voices of our university community.”
Inside Stout is recorded from a studio in Sorensen Hall; occasional episodes or portions of them also may be recorded on location.
The co-hosts are Pam Powers and Rachel Hallgrimson, who work in MarCom, UW-Stout’s Marketing Communications office. Powers is a communications specialist, and Hallgrimson is the university’s social media coordinator.
“Pam and Rachel are experienced interviewers who are eager to find the stories and spotlight the people who make UW-Stout a unique comprehensive polytechnic institution,” Schuster added.
Powers has bachelor’s degrees in mass communications and political science from UW-Superior; and a master’s degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism in New York. Hallgrimson is a graduate of UW-Stout’s professional communication and emerging media program. Both have previous broadcast experience.
New episodes, typically 25 to 30 minutes in length, are scheduled to be released every other week during the fall and spring semesters.
