jordan wagge & the oreo

Jordan WaggeEpisode 51 is with Dr. Jordan Wagge, Associate Professor of Psychology at Avila University. To be clear, she’s not the kind of psychologist who helps people, even though she likes to help people. Jordan, along with her students, runs the Cognition Lab at Avila, studying food and eating behaviors. We discuss her method of research, relying mostly on the internet. We also talk about traveling through space, setting your GPS to a voice with an accent, and what happens when you’re a young professional.

tim nekritz & the bilingual monkey

Screen Shot 2015-08-04 at 9.02.33 PMEpisode 31 features Tim Nekritz, Associate Director of Communications and Marketing/Director of Digital Communications at SUNY Oswego. Tim tells us how he got his current job wearing many hats, all thanks to this thing called “the internet” that got really big a while back. Naturally, we talk about using social media on campus, and interestingly enough, Tim describes how social media works to break down departmental silos that exist at so many institutions across the country. Oswego is in the midst of a website redevelopment initiative, and we talk about content, “front end” and “back end,” and the most effective use of time with a new project like this one. We mention Slack for a second, but then Lougan and Tim dive into a deeply passionate conversation about children’s television shows. There’s singing. You don’t want to miss it.

Coming off the Fourth of July holiday weekend, we chat about summertime, BBQ, and research laws regarding owning fireworks and firing them off. We do talk Higher Ed, though, when Tom brings up his summer project: the final edits on his textbook, Foundations of Academic Success: Words of Wisdom, which will be released soon as an open-source textbook through Open SUNY. We end the show with an incredibly interesting story from Tom, as he explained how he ended up in Attica Correctional Facility, and will be heading back.
