Public Affairs, Tuck Launch Podcast Services

"Views from the Green" broadcasts Dartmouth voices

Dartmouth's Office of Public Affairs has entered the realm of podcasting. A new series of audio programs called "Views from the Green" offers a chance to hear Dartmouth voices on a variety of topics.

"We are increasingly aware of the potential effectiveness of new technologies in communicating with Dartmouth's stakeholders, so we are always seeking ways to use them in our communications efforts," says William Walker '71A, vice president for public affairs. "The podcasts should prove useful in keeping alumni and parents connected to Dartmouth, and they also demonstrate the College's academic leadership on the national and international levels."

The three inaugural podcasts provide information about Social Security reform from Andrew Samwick, professor of economics and director of the Rockefeller Center, thoughts about Bolivia's new president from Professor of Government John Carey, and commentary on detecting fraud in digital images from Associate Professor of Computer Science Hany Farid.

Look for new podcasts in February from: John Rassias, William R. Kenan Professor and Chair of the Department of French and Italian; Michael Mayor, professor of orthopaedics at Dartmouth Medical School; Quintus Jett, visiting associate professor of engineering and lecturer at Thayer School; and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, professor of philosophy and Hardy Professor of Legal Studies.

The podcasts and more information about how to listen can be found at www.dartmouth.edu/~news/features/podcasts.

Radio Tuck covers technology and business

Tuck's Center for Digital Strategies has added an RSS feed to its Radio Tuck Web site, so students and alumni can subscribe and receive updates on the latest Radio Tuck interviews.

Radio Tuck is a series of recorded conversations with industry leaders that can be heard on the Web via streaming audio or download as mp3 files to a desktop or iPod. Created in 2001 and sponsored by Tuck's Center for Digital Strategies, Radio Tuck offers interviews that focus on the impact of technology on marketing, supply chain management, operations, and organizational change. The interviews are conducted by the center's MBA fellows.

Radio Tuck has more than 20 interviews in its library. Some focus on technology and a particular industry, while others cover technology-enabled business strategy.

Featuring interviews with executives from new as well as mature companies-including L.L. Bean, Bank of America, McGraw Hill, and Staples-Radio Tuck seeks to represent the broad impact and application of technology in today's businesses. Recent interviews include Tuck alumni Russell Wolff T'94 from ESPN International, Scott O'Hare T'86 from Dell, and Andrew Palmer T'94 from Infinity Pharmaceuticals. Past topics include how information technology has affected design and production in the automotive industry, and how data integration and data mining have influenced branding efforts in the financial services industry.

"Radio Tuck gives me the chance to talk to decision makers from a variety of industries about how they invest in technology and how they track the returns," says Dan McGuire T'06, a current interviewer.
