RadioEd podcast gives voice to DU experts

January saw the launch of RadioEd, a University of Denver podcast showcasing the knowledge creation and innovative thinking on campus and its relevance to the world outside DU’s walls. 

“Podcasts are such a fun way to explore everything from politics to movies to true crime to research. You get to step into a story, rather than just reading it on a page, and engage with the topics and people. It’s a really novel way to learn,” says RadioEd executive producer Alyssa Hurst. A self-described connoisseur of podcasts, she’s always looking for programs that bring something new to the conversation.  

RadioEd kicked off with three episodes, hosted by Hurst and two other members of DU’s communications team: writer Lorne Fultonberg and media relations specialist Nicole Militello. Episode 1 explored what the Women’s March has accomplished so far; episode 2 looked at how to make a Grammy-winning song; and episode 3 examined how brain injuries have changed the Super Bowl. 

Since then RadioEd has racked up thousands of listens across more than 30 states and 12 countries. Audiences have enjoyed commentary on pressing news topics through the eyes of DU researchers, including President Trump’s impeachment and the 2020 election; coronavirus; and the Methodist church split over same-sex marriage.
