UC Berkeley Podcast Studio: Engaging & Amplifying Student Voices

Podcast Transcript

April 1, 2022

Through the Berkeley Changemakers Innovation Grant, Dr. Pablo Gonzalez and his team have created a fully functioning podcast studio for students, faculty, and staff to utilize. The purpose of this studio is to give the UC Berkeley community a platform to amplify their voices. The CTO interns were lucky enough to get the opportunity to record at the studio and further understand what this studio means to the university community but also how to get more students, faculty, and staff involved.

Students and faculty can get involved with the podcast studio by visiting ssbc.berkeley.edu or follow them on Instagram at @eschangemaker.
