About

DePaul Download is a podcast exploring the people and initiatives that distinguish DePaul University. Discover what our faculty experts have to say about the pressing issues of the day, learn about the trend-setting programs we offer our students and hear from our president, Dr. A. Gabriel Esteban, on the challenges facing higher education and DePaul’s response to our guiding question: What must be done? Here’s how you can listen.

DePaul Download is a production from the Division of University Marketing and Communications.

The show is hosted by Linda Blakley, DePaul’s vice president for University Marketing and Communications. Linda left a long career in corporate communications in 2013 in search of a mission-based institution that puts forth good in the world. She found her place here. When she’s not touting all things DePaul, she’s volunteering for her church – at her church, St. Nicholas in Evanston, and for Y.O.U., a youth development agency in that suburb – or catching up on current events.

DePaul Download is produced and recorded by Mary Hansen, manager of strategic communications, and Randall Spriggs, digital media associate.
