15 podcasts for Baylor Bears on the go
Whether it’s due to one’s learning style or schedule, for some people, reading news online just doesn’t work. They prefer an audible format — books on tape, podcasts, etc.
If that sounds like you — and if you’re a dedicated Baylor Bear — then these Baylor podcasts are for you.
Baylor Connections — If you take one thing from this list, it should be Baylor Connections. In this weekly podcast, faculty, staff and administrators from across the university (including President Livingstone) talk about what’s happening at Baylor: Research that’s making national headlines, the reasoning behind student programs both old and new, and where Baylor as a whole is headed.
Student Success Stories — This podcast was started by Student Success Initiatives in an effort to equip students for academic success. Each episode includes study strategies, time management tips, recommendations for student organizations, and much more. If you’re new to college or are struggling with a class, give this one a listen during those walks across campus.
Waco History Podcast — Want to learn more about the history of Waco’s hometown? This podcast is for you. It’s a joint effort of Randy Lane (the great-grandson of the architect behind the ALICO building, the Hippodrome, and more) and Dr. Stephen Sloan (a Baylor history professor, director of the Institute for Oral History, and creator of WacoHistory.org). Together with a series of guests, they tell Waco’s known and unknown stories.
Objective Religion — From Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion, Objective Religion is a podcast at the intersection of religion and data-driven social science. Hosts Frank Newport, former editor-in-chief of Gallup, and Nate Brantingham, a recent seminary graduate, explore the past, present and future of religion in American society.
Business Review — Hosted by the Hankamer School of Business’ CJ Jackson, this podcast tackles common business topics — such as the challenges women face in IT, how to keep your employees from leaving, and hosting more effective meetings — in easily digestible two-minute bites.
Good Neighbear — If you’re looking for deep, thought-provoking podcasts, Good Neighbear is definitely for you. Created by Better Together BU, each episode features a Baylor student from a unique background, focusing on the ways we can address cultural humility and diversity and inclusion on campus and beyond.
Campus Cuts — From the Department of Multicultural Affairs, Campus Cuts is an intergenerational multicultural show that brings together students, faculty and community members from all walks of life to chop it up in the barbershop.
Bears, the Bar, and Beyond — This one is specifically designed for pre-law students, who could use all the advice they can get about navigating the law school world. Featuring advice from experts and people who have been there, this podcast is a must for anyone interested in entering the world of law.
Baylor Sports — Chatting Baylor sports has become so popular that we couldn’t name just one podcast about it. If you want to stay on top of all things Baylor Athletics, check out podcasts from Our Daily Bears, SicEm365, Bears Illustrated, sportswriters at The Baylor Lariat, and ESPN Central Texas’ local shows — especially You Make the Call, Unnecessary Roughness and the John Morris Show.
Sic ’em, Bears!
