Claremont Graduate University’s founding president James Blaisdell once wrote that “the center of a college is in great conversation.”
We believe this rings true today, and we’re committed to keeping the Flame burning through podcasts that showcase CGU’s diverse community of scholars, their innovative research, and the great conversations taking place on campus.
Studio B3 produces several long-running podcasts hosted by staff and numerous mini-series podcasts hosted by students and faculty. Several of our mini-series podcasts have been used as coursework or are updated yearly as a part of courses that incorporate podcasting as an assignment.
