Podcasts hosted by the MJ-school

The mission of the UNC School of Media and Journalism is to prepare students to ignite the public conversation in our state, the nation and the world, and to understand the role of communication in fostering democracy. Our faculty members are international thought leaders whose scholarly and creative activities are visible and respected in the public realm.

To reflect this mission, the MJ-school hosts two podcasts — the Start Here / Never Stop Podcast and Research Conversations podcast.


Start Here / Never Stop Podcast

The MJ-school's tagline, Start Here / Never Stop, adopted in the 2015-16 academic year, captures the idea that what students learn and experience at the school prepares them for successful careers and transitions in a dynamic media environment.

This podcast highlights the meaning behind the tagline through conversations between Dean Susan King and influential alumni, faculty, staff, students and speakers.
