    When I started the podcast last year, I was on the lookout for potential guests and realized that one of my former students, Melanie DeFilippis, started her own PR firm. We chatted about her experience, and you’ll find that episode under the title “Founding a Public Relations firm” on September 25, 2019. 
    That interview was the tipping point for Melanie to develop her own podcast. It’s called Biz Com with W.O.M. W.O.M. is the acronym for Melanie’s PR firm, Word of Mouth.
    One of Melanie’s first guests was our very own Dr. Josh Boyd, Professor and Undergraduate Coordinator in the Lamb School here at Purdue. 
    The link to Melanie’s podcast is below in the show notes as well as the link to her PR firm’s website.
    I hope you enjoy this cross-posted episode. You’ll find a similar episode, with me as the guest, posted March 4 of 2020. 
    Without further ado, Melanie DeFilippis' BizCOM with W.O.M. presents “Communication, Crisis Management and Sports Public Relations with Dr. Josh Boyd.

    When I found out that recent alumni Nate Piggush and Natalie Weber were returning to campus, I had to see if they would join me on the podcast. I asked, and they both graciously accepted. Nate and Natalie graduated in May 2018, so we get a useful snapshot of two recent alumni…about 2 years into their post-graduation careers. Nate and Natalie both live in Indianapolis. Nate works in advertising and Natalie works in public relations. Without further ado, my chat with Nate Piggush and Natalie Weber.

    When I started the podcast last year, I was on the lookout for potential guests. After some LinkedIn searching, I realized that one of my former students, Melanie DeFilippis, started her own PR firm. We had a great conversation, and you’ll find that episode under the title “Founding a Public Relations firm” on September 25, 2019.
    That interview was the tipping point for Melanie to develop her own podcast. It’s called Biz Com with W.O.M. W.O.M. is the acronym for Melanie’s PR firm, Word of Mouth.
    I was honored to be Melanie’s first guest. She posted that episode, and I am re-posting it here as an episode on my podcast. So, this episode flips the script, and I get to be the interviewee.
    Check out Melanie’s podcast. The link will be below in the show notes. It covers some topics relevant to communication students, especially those with an interest in PR. A future episode will feature Dr. Josh Boyd’s chat with Melanie.
    I hope you enjoy my first cross-posted episode. Without further ado, Melanie DeFilippis' BizCOM with W.O.M. presents “Public Speaking, Resumes and Cover Letters” with me…Josh Dexter-Wiens.
