Podward State: Season 10, Episode 2 Ft. Sophia Gladieux

On this week’s episode of Podward State, hosts Shannon Smith, Hailey Stutzman, and Charlie Pegler were joined by Penn State field hockey powerhouse and two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Sophia Gladieux.

Before jumping into the interview, Keeley Lamm, Slaughter Joseph, and Ryan Smith broke down some local headlines, including a Penn State alumna on “Shark Tank” and former Penn State linebacker Terry Killens officiating the Super Bowl.

Then, Gladieux discussed her choice to attend Penn State, her relationship with Char Morett-Curtiss, and what’s in store for the senior. Gladieux and the crew also did some rapid-fire questions and got to the bottom of the field hockey star’s music taste.

To wrap up the show, Connor Krause dove into all things Penn State sports with Aidan Conrad and CJ Gill.
