The podcast’s introductory episode with host Alex Cumming debuts May 17 on Spotify, Apple and other podcast streaming platforms. Cumming is an Orlando native, the son of a three-time UCF alumna and a second-year BFA theatre acting student.

In addition to his studies, he performs with Playback UCF and also writes for a student-run fashion and lifestyle publication, Strike Magazine UCF.

New episodes will post every other Monday and are scheduled to kick off with university President Alexander Cartwright, Associate Professor of Emergency and Crisis Management Claire Connolly Knox, and Professor and Interim Chief Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Officer Kent Butler. Music for each episode is composed by College of Arts and Humanities Professor Alex Burtzos.
