, , and | Sunday, April 5, 2020

Welcome to the first-ever virtually recorded episode of the show! In this episode, join us as we interview The Observer’s new Editor-in-Chief, Maria Leontaras!

Listen to learn about how she’s running the paper from a distance, when she first fell in love with journalism and which Disney character fits her personality best.

Maria is also our first-ever guest from Saint Mary’s so we’ll talk about student life in the tri-campus community and how to build relationships across campuses.
