New Podcast Talk Show Highlights Trinity Faculty

New Show is Part of Additional Podcast Offerings
​Kevin MacDermott, head coach of the men's rowing program at Trinity College, believes strongly in the value of a liberal arts college education. In addition to leading a top rowing program at Trinity, he recently began hosting a new podcast talk show, offered exclusively on Trinity's Soundcloud page. The show, "Trinity Faculty Profile Podcasts," features interviews with various Trinity faculty members, highlighting the scholarship, teaching, and personalities of members of Trinity's faculty.

MacDermott (pictured) is a Wesleyan University graduate with a theater degree, and a member of Franklin's Peaches, a popular Connecticut improv comedy group. Before joining Trinity's staff in 2007, MacDermott worked for four years as assistant coach of the men's rowing team at Wesleyan, where he also worked in the admissions department.  He says he hopes his podcast will serve as an opportunity for more members of the campus community and beyond to get to know our faculty.

"Through my years at Trinity, I've been fortunate to develop great relationships with many members of the faculty. This podcast allows the audience, including alumni, prospective and current students, and the entire Trinity community to learn more about the exceptional members of our faculty."

The show is produced by Trinity students working with the Communications Office. The recordings are taped in a studio at Trinity's music/arts theme house, The Mill. Ebban Maeda '16 has served as lead producer, responsible for recording and engineering the podcasts.  This show complements additional podcasts offered by the College featuring on-campus lectures. Gio Quattrochi '16 is the lead student podcaster for these talks, and also is involved in strategy for all podcast content through the Communications Office.  Additional programming will be released as podcasting develops.

Ebban Maeda '16 is the lead student producer for the Faculty Profile Podcasts, recorded at The Mill.
