Get your earbuds ready; Josie and the Podcast will soon be back from a little winter hibernation!

Season Two Recap

The first half of season two had an incredible guest roster. I got to speak with a social media professor, university president, two marketing pros, and even had my first undergraduate student guest! I even had some fun putting out airwaves from just me and dropped a surprise holiday bonus episode. Check out all the episodes below!

Spring Sneak Peek

Starting January 25th, you can expect even more amazing conversations with pros like Luoluo Hong, Liz Gross, Terrell Strayhorn, Sabrina Cruz, Melissa Woo, and a particularly epic conversation with Washington State University President Kirk H Schulz and first lady and engineering professor Noel Schultz.
As always, my goal is to connect technology and leadership in higher education at all levels, from undergraduate students to university presidents. I’m confident that my conversations with these guests will help you transform the way that you approach technology and leadership, so be sure to give them a listen!

The Tech Behind the Podcast

Finally, I get lots of questions about how to start a podcast. At first, I was l like – “Well, I don’t know, I’m still figuring that out!” Now I’ve got more than 30 episodes under my belt and a solid list of podcasting equipment that I use, which you can see below!
