“The Slavic Connexion” from The University of Texas at Austin
This semester, students from the UT Slavic Department launched a new podcast called The Slavic Connexion. Each week the students, lead by grad student/filmmaker Michelle Daniel and hosted by grad students Thomas Rehnquist and Matthew Orr, and undergrads Milena Djordjevic-Kisacanin and Lauren Nyquist, take turns interviewing UT faculty, students and visiting speakers to the Department. The podcast is a fresh international chat show meant to share research, ideas, and culture in digestible episodes within and between academic institutions globally.
