Podward State: Season 6 Finale Ft. Mother’s Day Special

On the season six finale of Podward State, hosts Samuel Brungo and Grace Cunningham are joined by the rest of the gang to interview a few very special guests…their moms!

In honor of Mother’s Day, the crew welcomes their moms to the (virtual) studio to get the inside scoop on their proudest moments, embarrassing stories, and their favorite college memories. We even get to hear some ex-boyfriend tea and a Penn State love story.

To close out the show, seniors Will Pegler, Jordan Mansberger, and Brungo give their closing remarks as they bid farewell to Podward State. The boys chat about the show’s humble beginnings, its bright future, and their thoughts ahead of graduation.

Podward State is an Onward State-produced podcast that releases weekly episodes on Spotify and YouTube during Penn State’s fall and spring semesters. Each episode features discussions with guests about all things Penn State, including sports, news, student life, entertainment, and more.

Podward State is dutifully produced by Onward State’s all-student staff, including…
