Lend us your ear. We have some good stories to tell you.

But first grab your smartphone, computer tablet, laptop – or even one of those spiffy Apple iPods if yours is still kicking around. Because these stories come to you as podcasts. This week Chapman University is proud to announce a suite of new podcasts that explore compelling topics of the day.

The podcasts explore jobs, science, creativity, space and even dinosaurs, all told through the lens of Chapman alumni, students and faculty. Meet the writer behind your favorite Batman comics, the paleontologist who has us rethinking dinosaur life and a musician who mixes up his music with ceramic bowls. And that’s just to name a few.
