TASEM Discusses Netflix, Youtube, And Duck Dynasty In New Podcasts

The Tech Association of Student Electronic Media recently experimented with podcasts for the first time. TASEM heads Ben Jarvis and Theresa Malicki led the student group in creating three podcasts about Netflix, Youtube, and Duck Dynasty. Basically, the three most important topics to any media student.

Do you want in on this podcast action? Maybe you want to learn your way around a camera, or you just want to connect with other students who are driven to create and teach one another in all aspects of media. TASEM meets Tuesdays at 6 p.m. in Room 365 of the Media and Communication building. Come out, have some fun, make some friends, develop your skills, and learn with us.
