Podward State: Season 7, Episode 5 Ft. Relish Rachel & All-American Ashley

Frankly, you’re going to want to tune into this one, folks.

On the latest episode of Podward State, hosts Grace Cunningham, Shannon Smith, and Connor Krause are joined by two Penn State alums and former Oscar Mayer Wienermobile drivers (read: hotdoggers), Ashley Ferrara All-American Ashley and Rachel Aul Relish Rachel.

Before the interview kicks off, Charlie Pegler reads some headlines with Hailey Stutzman, Teagan Staudenmeier, and Tobey Prime. The crew discusses the upcoming Hulu series about the death of Timothy Piazza, Penn State hoops’ “Shrews’ Slamma Jamma,” and their review of the beer sales in Beaver Stadium.

Next, Relish Rachel and All-American Ashley hop on the call to chat with our hosts. Throughout the interview, the hotdoggers talk about their time at Penn State, how they ended up driving the Wienermobile, and what they learned from the ~unique~ experience. They also spill some Wienermobile secrets and crack plenty of hot dog jokes.

To wrap up the show, Krause is joined by Keeley Lamm and Mara McKeon to discuss the latest happenings in the world of Penn State sports.
