My government and public affairs reporting class will begin its two podcasts with The Colonnade this Friday, Sept. 15.

The first podcast is “Paws to Listen” and is an interview series with prominenet people around the campus and Milledgeville community. Students take turns interviewing people in GCSU administration, Milledgeville city government, local law emforcement, and Student Government Association. New episodes will air each Wednesday and Friday.

The second podcast is the “Public Safety Report”. The Colonnade summarizes crime briefs in each week’s newspaper. Readership surveys show this is the most heavily read section of the newspaper. The podcast will include a reading of the print briefs and will also feature additional reports that just didn’t make the cut. New episodes will air each Friday The Colonnade publishes.

I invite all of you to subscribe and to encourage your students to as well. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. You can post comments online or send in a Letter to the Editor to colonnadeletters@gcsu.edu. A complete letter policy is available on the Letters page of The Colonnade.

Thanks for all of the support from this group.
