Podward State: Season 8, Episode 1 Ft. Brad Kraut

*Taps microphone*… Is this thing on?

On the season eight premiere of Podward State, hosts Connor Krause and Grace Cunningham, along with guest host Hailey Stutzman, are joined by the rest of the crew to kick off the new season. The team gets back into the groove and chats about its excitement for the upcoming season.

Before hopping into the main interview, Charlie Pegler is joined by Cunningham and Teagan Staudenmeier to discuss some headlines they missed during the break. The gang chats about the closure of Gumby’s Pizza, the death of Franco Harris, and Walker Hayes’ upcoming performance at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Next, Krause and Stutzman welcome Penn State senior and social media influencer Brad Kraut to the studio. Throughout the episode, Kraut discusses his high school years, his time with Penn State cheerleading, JERPA Jeans, his post-grad plans, and more.

To cap off the show, Keeley Lamm is joined by Pegler and Mara McKeon to discuss Penn State’s Rose Bowl win, the dominance of Penn State wrestling, Penn State men’s basketball’s matchup with Purdue at the Palestra, and more.
