“We wanted to recognize all the hard work that students are putting into their podcasts every day," said Director of Community Programming and Quinnipiac Podcasts David DesRoches. "Podcasting can sometimes be a labor of love, and you never know who is listening and what they think about your work. We wanted to send a message to students that we care about what they have to say, and we want them to say more. We want them to know that we hear them, and that when they make a podcast that stands out, they should be recognized for it – with a trophy, some new gear, whatever it takes to keep them behind the microphone.”
