In early 2020, I applied for a Community Building grant from the Gallatin School of Individualized Studies to help create a walking group on NYU’s campus with a few other grad school friends.

We met in person only a few times due to COVID-19, but in lieu of in-person meet-ups, we created podcast episodes for members to listen to and then later discuss in online conversations.

I lead the production of our podcast episodes, from pre-interviews to recording and audio editing. Additionally, I ran our website and facilitated many of the virtual meetings. 

And while our journal and final podcast episode were never released, what started as a very small group on campus grew to attract members from other universities and the general public due to our social media and public sharing of our podcast materials.
