As I say before the show starts, I’ll be pushing out a student show and a staff show, so I’d love to hear what you’d want out of an HE podcast. Would you like interviews, advice, news, opinion?
Let me know what would be of help and interest so I can make TUB-Talk just right for you.
Thanks for all the feedback so far. Keep it coming!
