Introducing Saint Mary’s Currents, a podcast

October 19, 2021

Cardinal Update News Newsletters Stories

Saint Mary’s University’s Marketing and Communication Department is launching a new podcast series on current topics relevant to the world of work and life. Welcome to the first edition of Saint Mary’s Currents, where we address issues that are trending, relevant, and yes, sometimes divisive or controversial. Just as current is a flow of positive electric charge, the goal of Saint Mary’s Currents is to find a positive path forward.

The pilot episode, which has been recorded, is an interview with M.A. in Human Resource Management program director Amy Jauman, joining podcast host and communications specialist Ben Rodgers to discuss how the shift to remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic has altered our perceptions of the traditional workspace. You can listen to the episode in the audio player below. If you would like to listen to future episodes, subscribe to Saint Mary’s Currents on your favorite podcasting platform, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.

These podcasts will be posted on our website, on social media, and for public relations outreach. We encourage you to consider ways to share compelling and relevant content to your audiences — prospective students, alumni, and benefactors. Reach out if you would like to discuss ways that you might share this contact.

As we prepare future episodes, we invite other faculty whose areas of academic interest line up with current trends and topics and who would be willing to sit down for a half-hour conversation. Our goal is to accrue up to a dozen more podcasts in the next six months. If you have a topic idea or interest in being a guest of Saint Mary’s Currents, please contact Rodgers at 507-457-1481 or, Deb Nahrgang at 507-457-6966 or, or Geoffrey DeMarsh at 507-457-1496 or
