Podward State: Episode Six

Onward State has released a new episode of “Podward State.” This week, we discuss Penn State football’s win over Michigan State, Penn State men’s and women’s basketball tipping off their 2019-20 seasons, debate which library entrance is the *true* main entrance, and the potential for the 100 block of Allen Street to become a pedestrian mall.

New episodes of the podcast are released once a week, and it features discussions about all things Penn State – including sports, news, student life, and entertainment.
