The show includes original reporting, analysis, and interviews, all designed to give listeners an informed look at what’s happening at the university, and why. They also include a diverse set of guests – athletes, administrators, alumni, students, politicians, journalists, and more – to offer their perspectives and explain how a certain aspects of the university work.
