    What Happens If Twitter Goes Away and Other Conversations about Political Communication and Political Engagement

    What Happens If Twitter Goes Away and Other Conversations about Political Communication and Political Engagement

    In the third of our of "What's New With..." series, we have the great opportunity to catch up with Dr. Cynthia Peacock, now an associate professor in the Department of Communication Studies within C&IS. When we last spoke with Cynthia, she was telling us about the time she took her students to attend the Iowa Caucuses, and about all of her work in political communication. She's been busy these last two years, and in today's episode, we get to hear all about it. She is currently working on a study about relational communication when individuals do not share the same political ideology--can you imagine the potential drama? But, she's also looking into issues such as the changes in the online environment, including social media, and how these changes will affect political engagement and opinion exchange. I don't want to give away too much here, but I will just say, this is another really fun one!! As a fun fact about Cynthia, she wanted to be a criminal psychologist or a National Geographic photographer when she was growing up, and her pathway to academia is an interesting (but cool) one!

    From Country Music Superstar to Professorship and Other Conversations About Organizational Communication Within Advertising

    From Country Music Superstar to Professorship and Other Conversations About Organizational Communication Within Advertising

    If you think advertising is similar to the way it is portrayed on Mad Men, you'll definitely need to tune into today's episode. 

    As a child, our next guest's aspirations were to land it big as a country music superstar. While she toyed around with that idea for a while, her parents finally convinced her she needed to find another pathway, albeit a creative one, so she could have a backup plan. That landed Dr. Teresa Tackett, an assistant professor in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, in college exploring all there was to learn about advertising, ad agencies and the different types of creative work that was out. After graduation, Teresa was given the opportunity to work professionally in advertising on the creative side, where she said that side of the industry was largely male-dominated, by 95% or more. Teresa said it was her professional experiences that led her to shift gears slightly and head back to graduate school so she could learn more about the ways social justice issues, including diverse representation, could be studied, examined and then even potentially corrected. Teresa got her Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and just this fall joined the College of Communication and Information Research's faculty in advertising.  She says women spend a lot of time trying to understand gender in male spaces, and her research is really taking this issue on directly via the studies she has conducted with other professional women in the industry. 

    We don't want to give it all away, but this is an episode you don't want to miss.

    The broccoli of democracy? It’s good for you but some people don’t like it and other conversations about political advertising

    The broccoli of democracy? It’s good for you but some people don’t like it and other conversations about political advertising

    We are less than 24 hours away from Election Day 2022, and in today's episode, we get the good fortune of talking with one of C&IS' many political communication scholars--Dr. Josh Bramlett, an assistant professor in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations. It seems like during any election year, we are faced with political ads, negative attack ads, and everything in between from about August until Election Day, and as we learn from Josh, as annoying as it may be for some, others actually believe they are effective. You'll have to tune in to find out if research supports that notion! What Josh studies are the outcomes of political advertising and and the influences of political advertising, and keep in mind, the way we all get our news and information is from a variety of platforms--actual newspapers (but maybe digital versions), radio, television news, social media and platforms like TikTok, so if you were to be a politician, how would you know where to direct your messaging? This is a part of what Josh studies and he tells us all about it, along with things like the normative outcomes of political advertising--things like a lack of trust in the government. But, today's conversation isn't all about politics! We won't have too much of a spoiler here, but Josh did say that Jurassic Park inspired what he wanted to be as a young child. Can you guess? Even better--his recommendations are what to watch, what to read, and the reality program he'd like to be on may just surprise you. Today's conversation is SO MUCH FUN, and you definitely don't want to miss it!

    Catching up with Dr. Maddox: The Internet Really Is For Cats

    Catching up with Dr. Maddox: The Internet Really Is For Cats

    In today's episode, we catch up with Dr. Jess Maddox, an assistant professor in the Department of Journalism and Creative Media, about the book project and other research projects she was working on when we talked to her TWO YEARS AGO. Spoiler alert: not only do we learn that her book is done and on the bookshelves (but technically Amazon and other online booksellers), we get the chance to hear about all of the projects she is working on now, including a second book project. When you think about the ways the Internet but especially social media have evolved over the last several years, one prevailing theme is that of pets--we all like to see pet photos and videos, now on TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media platforms. But, why is that and what is it that drives us to these platforms?  Do you feel calmer when you see pet photos and videos? Happier? We dive into all of that in our conversation with Dr. Maddox, and just for fun we throw in talk about rivalry football.

    You can check out Dr. Maddox's latest book several ways:
