Town & Gown Podcast Returns
We are excited to announce the return of Albion College's podcast: Town & Gown. While the style of previous episodes, which provided opportunities to celebrate shared success between the College and the City, will remain, Rachel Barry, ’18, student host of the show, will be focusing on topics for current and prospective students. In her debut episodes, she had a chance to sit down with President Ditzler for a "Minute with Mauri" (OK, so our chats might last a few minutes each). Listen here. You can listen to previous podcasts on iTunes or Soundcloud. The 2018 run of episodes will be updated to both soon.
