One Book One Northwestern, the podcast

The book is just the beginning. Our podcast follows Wildcats having engrossing
conversations, on campus and beyond, about this year’s One Book, Hidden Figures by
Margot Lee Shetterly. Brought to you by The Medill School of Journalism, Media,
Integrated Marketing Communications and One Book One Northwestern, the podcast
can be found on iTunes or SoundCloud. This will allow you to access new episodes
automatically. We will also have all the podcasts posted on the website. 

This year’s podcast episodes were created by sophomore Baylor Spears—a Medill

student from Knoxville, Tennessee. She is majoring in journalism and political science,
and interested in audio journalism. Baylor is a reporter for WNUR News where she
covers local Evanston and Northwestern News. She is also involved with ResilientNU
as a facilitator and board member. She will be working on the OneBook podcast for the
year, and can’t wait to start exploring themes of the book by covering different events
and hearing from people all across campus!
