Public Podcasting has partnered with Santiago Canyon College to produce three episodes: Crypto Space, Turning A New Leaf, and Teenage Addiction And Quitting . Student groups from the English 100 class at Santiago Canyon College researched topics and created scripts to record. Public Podcasting mentored the students in how to tell a story, how to share research, and how to personalize their episodes.
This program is sponsored by the Santiago Canyon College Foundation. The mission of the SCC Foundation is to sponsor various gift‐giving opportunities, increase public awareness, and participate in campaigns needed to provide for the scholarships, programs, and capital needs of the College.

For all of us who believe there is not one way. One genre. One spirit. One answer. Or even one question. This blog is for the writer before she was so, as well as for the reader who defies her expectations every time: it is for the poets, satirists, fiction writers, essayists, diarists, and ancient word wanderers; this blog is for the infinitely unwritten. To each, a celebration. A celebration to all.
