Podward State: Season 7 Finale Ft. Michael McDermott…Aka The Nittany Lion

On the season seven finale of Podward State, hosts Grace Cunningham, Connor Krause, and Shannon Smith are joined by Penn State senior Michael McDermott…also known as the Nittany Lion.

After recently revealing his identity at Penn State football’s home game against Michigan State, the crew was eager to sit down with the man behind the Symbol of Our Best in one of his first interviews as the Nittany Lion.

Before getting into the interview, Hailey Stutzman, Mikey DeAngelis, and Tobey Prime discuss some headlines from the last few weeks.

Throughout the episode, McDermott chats about the Nittany Lion tryout process, how he comes up with his creative costumes and skits, and his excitement for the Rose Bowl. He even power ranks his favorite Nittany Lion ‘fits.

To wrap up the show, Keeley Lamm joins DeAngelis and Prime to chat about all things Penn State sports, including Penn State football’s upcoming trip to Pasadena.
