Podward State: Season 2, Episode 4

On this week’s episode of “Podward State,” we discuss possible “Rothsteinism” slogans for the Penn State basketball team and then welcome associate editor Will Pegler to break down Penn State men’s basketball more in-depth. We then welcome on senior editor Mikey Mandarino to talk Penn State men’s hockey and then talk to staff writers Dana Nunemacher and Colleen Nersten about their experience riding the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile around State College.

Last but certainly not least, we talk to Penn State Up & Up Festival vice president David Lokman about the history of the EDM festival and the upcoming show in April.

We release episodes of the podcast weekly, and feature discussions about all things Penn State – including sports, news, student life, and entertainment.
