ebru kardan & the great outdoors

Ebru KardanWe’ve made it to episode 70 with Ebru Kardan, Director of External Affairs and Communications at the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We first address exactly what that means, as higher ed titles tend to include a lot of extra words in job titles. There’s some nerdiness in this podcast, in the form of Star Trek talk and Ebru’s famous beer can cat. We also talk about Untappd and call out many past guests for the beers they were drinking at the time, and Jackie explains a class she’ll be taking later this month.

melissa van de werfhorst & the power of the wikipedia

11953130_1194710127221087_6474174825131308098_nEpisode 65 is with Melissa Van De Werfhorst, Marketing and Communications Manager for the College of Engineering at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Unsurprisingly, we talk about cats (there’s 9 between everyone), but also chat with Melissa about the recent Sarpa fire that was very closeby. Now that it’s summer, life has slowed down a little, but Melissa is working on a website relaunch for the College of Engineering. We also geek out about Murder She Wrote and Star Trek for a while.

dustin ramsdell & the lightsaber

RU-Headshot_LM2_7761Episode twelve features Dustin Ramsdell, Resident Director at Husson University and co-host of The Student Affairs Spectacular Podcast. Lougan kicks off the podcast by geeking out, or nerding out, with Dustin about science fiction, as Jackie sits silently in the background, because her nerd-ism is fitness. These passions lead to interesting metaphors about higher ed, and a discussion about how to stay fit when working in higher education. We close by discussing the recent events at the University of Oklahoma, and how social media plays a bigger role than it seems.
