In this week’s episode of Podward State, Matt Ogden, Matt Paolizzi, and Sam Brungo sit down with Onward State associate editor Will Pegler to get to the bottom of the wild rumors surrounding the Big Ten potentially restarting its football season.

Later, Onward State staffers Dana Nunemacher and Mira DiBattiste join the show to settle an important Zoom debate: Should you have your camera on or off while in class? They also discuss different forms of Zoom etiquette they hope to see adopted during this semester of Zoom University.
