Nicole’s at it again, chasing her Ira Glass dreams. In episode two (7:46), she interviews a Spokane couple, Anne and Eric Bandholz, about Eric’s didgeridoo skills. But the real star of the show is Eric’s beard.
Q: Wait. Is Nicole using the EL Department blog as a platform for her own creative projects?
A: Well, it certainly seems that way.
Q: But this is still for the greater good and stuff?
A: Yes. Yes, I’m sure it is.
Rambunctious Vernacular is a Spokane-based podcast series in the vein of This American Life. I lifted (with permission) the name Rambunctious Vernacular from the homework of one of our talented undergrads, Josie Camarillo (’14).
Episode one (about 10:30) includes an interview with Katie Creyts, Associate Professor of 3-D art and sculpture at Whitworth, and EL and Theater alum, Katie Carmella Dolan (’11).
