Podward State: Season 7, Episode 1 Ft. Back To School Special

*Drum roll, please.*

Podward State is finally back in the studio.

On the season seven premiere of Podward State, hosts Grace Cunningham, Connor Krause, and Shannon Smith are joined by the rest of the crew to kick off the new season. The team chats about their summers and the first week back in Happy Valley.

Then, Cunningham welcomes Tobey Prime and Mikey DeAngelis to the studio for the first time. We get to hear about who they are and their feelings about joining the team.

Next, Charlie Pegler reads some headlines that the team missed during the break with Hailey Stutzman, Teagan Staudenmeier, Prime, and DeAngelis. The gang discusses the new Penn State Lululemon collection, new restaurants downtown, performers coming to the Bryce Jordan Center, and more.

To close out the show, Connor Krause is joined by Keeley Lamm and Mara McKeon to preview the Purdue Boilermakers before the Nittany Lions head off to Indiana this Thursday.

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…
