November episodes out now!
Tune in monthly for conversations with leading community engagement professionals, book and literature reviews, discussions of important topics in the field, and maybe the answer to what happens when a few community engagement professionals step into an elevator–or start a podcast.

Strengthening Democracy for a Healthier Society
In our seventh episode of the second season, Co-Host J.R. Jamison sits down with our own Andrew Seligsohn, President of Campus Compact, to discuss how the organization is responding to the current climate in the country by bringing people together through dialogue, programs, and shared missions. They also make a stop off in Pop Culture Corner to talk Stranger Things and Man in the High Castle. Listen now and weigh in online using #CompactNationPod.

Talking it out, deliberative dialogue in higher education
Co-Hosts Emily Shields and Andrew Seligsohn sit down with author and scholar Timothy Shaffer about his work and research in deliberative dialogue, including his new book “Deliberative Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning for Democratic Engagement.” They discuss what it really takes to embed dialogue in campus and community work and some ideas for making it more effective. They also take a detour from the usual pop culture conversation to review Thanksgiving traditions, including Andrew’s recipe for turkey that doesn’t suck.
