Mellon/ACLS Community College Faculty Fellow Beth Baunoch F’21 and her project creating an inclusive podcasting network are featured in a November 15, 2021 Inside Higher Ed article highlighting her students’ podcast Good School.

Baunoch, an assistant professor of communication and media studies at Community College of Baltimore County, created a virtual podcast production house with funding from her Mellon/ACLS fellowship in fall 2020 to offer students training and access to produce podcasts. The Good School podcast “seeks to undercut the stigma of attending a community college while answering the larger question of what it means for a college to be considered a ‘good school.’”

“Community college is a starting point for students who have full lives and who are busy people and don’t necessarily have the time to dedicate to being on campus and involved in all the extracurriculars…the opportunity to produce a story like this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing.” Keith Anstead
