The Herald currently has two podcasts in production: The Seneca Scene is our weekly interview podcast where we chat with people in the Hobart and William Smith Colleges community; Career Journeys is our second podcast, produced in collaboration with the Salisbury Center for Career Services, where Alex Kerai ’19 interviews alums who are leaders in their field. Podcasts are a new venture from the Herald and were created in an effort to reach more members of the broader Hobart and William Smith community while keeping up with changing news media techniques.
The Seneca Scene is the podcast for the Herald. The podcast was launched in May 2018 and is recorded each week on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges. It includes the latest campus news and an extended interview with a member of the campus community – faculty, staff or student.
The first episode was released on Friday, May 11 and we will be updating this page with each episode. You can listen online or subscribe on iTunes or Spotify to stay up to date with the news of Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
Beginning Wednesday, May 29, The Seneca Scene began its first summer miniseries focusing on Tommy the Traveler and the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus during a time of great change from 1968-1972. It is a ten-episode series that will be running until Wednesday, July 10. You can find all of the episodes for the miniseries here.
