What would a portfolio website be without a few podcasts?! Over the past few years I've worked closely with English professor Joe Nugent on a series of podcasting-related courses, projects, and initiatives. This work spans from organizing a five-person conference panel of Boston-area podcasters to helping Prof. Nugent pitch and publicize his 2018 "Podcasting Flann O'Brien" course. As my interest in podcasting grows, I've also been able to produce two multi-episode series in my time at BC.

An avid supporter of the Digital Humanities, Prof. Nugent hopes to establish the practice of podcast-based pedagogy at Boston College To this end, he enlisted me and my good pal Peter Zogby to produce an ongoing English department-facing faculty spotlight series called "From the Bookshelf."

(This is an interesting series because it tasks me with interviewing people much smarter than myself.)

Edited and hosted by Peter, my job is to schedule and conduct interviews with professors about their favorite books and current research interests. Additionally, I do the branding and graphic design work for the series and also manage its Soundcloud account and the SoundingsBC.com website. Recently, I've spoken to English department faculty and students about my podcasting experiences and will be appearing in a series of instructional videos that will be circulated in future BC podcasting courses.

In the summer of 2018, I produced (and occasionally wrote for) a ten-episode scripted comedy series called "Everything We Know So Far." The series was created and hosted by my hilarious friends Ellen Gerst and Shea Rulon, and it was a great way for us to goof off at night after our summer internships.

(Yes, that's the same Peter Zogby from the first series. We BC podcasters run in pretty tight social circles!)
