Heinz Radio

Heinz Radio is a weekly podcast created by Heinz College students that is dedicated to bringing you interesting conversations about topics that matter in the realms of policy, arts, research and technology. Heinz Radio looks at how the world is changing. It finds people aiming for the stars and digging for answers. It’s about nitty gritty details and global issues. Heinz Radio is about great conversations with smart people who are trying to make the world a little – or a lot – better than they found it.

Heinz Radio started way before podcasts were popular. It used to be on the actual radio, at 88.3 FM, but in 2016, two students got together and re-started Heinz Radio as a podcast. In our first year as a podcast, our team grew from two to ten. As students come and go, and policy and the world shift, Heinz Radio will as well. But we’ll always be committed to bringing you interesting conversations with interesting people about topics that matter.
