Be Connected, a podcast from the Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University, focuses on the stories and happenings of the people and the community that make the College of Comm what it is. I worked on the podcast from September 2018-December 2019 as of the initial podcast hosts. I was involved with the creation of the podcast, social media posts, and providing feedback to other podcast hosts. The show was produced under the guidance of Barb Volbrecht.
