Hello Middlebury sports fans! I’m pleased to announce that, for the second consecutive year, I’ll be hosting the Siefer’s Scoop podcast for The Campus.
I began this podcast series last academic year, when I interviewed a different varsity athlete each week. I asked athletes about their beginnings with athletics, their path to Middlebury, and their current experience as an athlete at the College, among other things. I released 19 episodes throughout the fall and spring, with athletes from 18 different varsity teams (a little over half of Middlebury’s 31 athletic programs) represented on the podcast.
This year, I’m shifting the focus of the podcast from current student-athletes to alumni — specifically, alumni who played on a varsity sports team at Middlebury. I don’t have a strict set of criteria for guests, but I’m focusing on alumni who have excelled athletically after their time at Middlebury, and/or those who are changing the world in a captivating line of work.
I will be releasing episodes every other week this fall, and episodes will run about 30 minutes. You can find them on The Campus’ website, Spotify and many other listening platforms. The first episode of the fall will be released next week! (And you won’t want to miss it.)
‘Til then, stay well, and Go Panthers!
