S2: E37 | Founders' Day Address
We come back from the break with a little tribute to Founders' Day 2022:
"As they sat at 504 East Locust Street on a cold Tuesday night, Settles, Truitt, McNutt, Atkinson and Mayer set out to create a fraternity that was different than others in their time...
Today, on our 123rd Founders’ Day and throughout 2022, I encourage you to engage with TKE’s 1-2-3 - Connect, Celebrate and Contribute.
Connect today with the Fraternity on MyTKE.org. Celebrate with your fellow Fraters by sharing on social media the memories of your fraternal experience using #IAMTKE. And contribute to Life Loyal Teke to help impact the future of Tau Kappa Epsilon at TKE.org/LLT.
Your engagement in Tau Kappa Epsilon will help to define our future. For us to achieve what our Founders set out to accomplish, the Fraternity For Life needs you. Will you answer the call?"

S2: Break | Week Off
Donnie and Alex are taking a little break this week, and they will be back next week for the last episode of the year! We are glad to have you all follow along, and as always, thank you for subscribing, rating and sharing the show with your fellow Fraters and friends. Be sure to catch up with the last episode and the bonus release last week!
S2: Bonus | Deferred Recruitment
For this bonus episode of the TKE Nation Podcast, join Alex Swenson, Nick Kimble, and Zach Scott for a conversation on deferred recruitment and what that could mean for your goals. Some topics of discussion include strategies and tactics for recruiting second-semester freshmen, using the time remaining before the holidays to prepare for spring rush, establishing buy-in from the full chapter as you meet your recruitment goals. This recording was originally recorded as a webinar, so there may be times that you hear an audience addressed.
S2: E35 | Ft. Brad Rateike
Donnie and Alex interview Brad Rateike (Rho-Upsilon, Franklin) this week on the podcast, and there are stories galore. To name just a few accomplishments, Brad has worked in the White House as the Director of Cabinet Communications; was Deputy Press Secretary and Policy Director for Mitch Daniels, former Governor of Indiana; and was named an Indianapolis Business Journal Forty under 40 in 2020. The humbling part of this interview is that Brad ties a lot of his experiences to what he learned during his years as an collegiate. Some takeaways are try not to burn your bridges and always keep in touch!
S2: E34 | Donnie and Alex Reunited
Reunited, and it feels so good! It's been a couple episodes since Donnie and Alex have been together chatting on an episode. They spend their time on this episode reviewing Donnie's thoughts on the most recent news in TKE Nation, like the changes on the Grand Council and the upcoming Regional Leadership Conferences. They also spend time recapping what they're watching in sports and good news in recruitment. Lastly, If you haven't seen, check out the ways to save money on RLC registration at TKE.org/RLC!
Good step forward
I’m glad to see this endeavor from my fraternity, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store. Hopefully they get collegiate members on to hear from them.
