Symposia, Brown College's flagship podcast, features/will feature:
- Recorded lectures of Brown College's special guests, such as Desh Girod and Alan Lightman
- Interviews about Brown College specific functions, like Hauntings
- Special interests of the Faculty Fellows, Hill Staff, and Residents!
About the name: The term "symposium" originates from the "convivial discussions" and parties that would occur after banquets in ancient Greece. This sounds exactly like the warm academia of Brown College - a pursuit of connection and knowledge that exists not only in classrooms, but in the dining halls, lounges, and libraries of Brown. As there's simply no way to boil down the content of this project to a specific focus of study or life at Brown, the plural Symposia serves as the name of this podcast.
Where to listen: You can find episodes on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other podcast providers. Here's the link to the home page on the Virginia Audio Collective website!
