FIU's Division of External Relations, Strategic Communications and Marketing (ERSCM) is launching a new show that gives Panthers a platform to share their stories.
Panther Personalities is a talk-show style podcast where "students are stars, research is relatable and FIU tells its own stories." Hosted by FIU News and FIU Magazine writer David Drucker ’18 the podcast will publish every month with a student interview as well as a conversation with a member of the staff, faculty or alumni.
In the pilot episode, FIU Law Professor and U.N. International Law Commission (ILC) member Charles Jalloh joins Drucker to talk about the big topics and questions of international criminal law. He also discusses his fellowship, which takes students to where the ILC meets in Geneva, Switzerland.
Political science major Teresa Schuster also comes on the podcast to talk about her Panther journey, and she describes what it is like to be on FIU’s nationally competitive Model U.N. team.
