Michigan State University Extension director begins new podcast series that highlights partnerships

MSU Extension's director Jeff Dwyer launches his new podcast series Nov. 5, on the CANR website.

EAST LANSING, MI – Partnerships and Peninsulas is the new podcast series released by Michigan State University Extension director Jeff Dwyer on Nov. 5 that highlights the organization’s partnerships and initiatives. Three episodes have been released on MSU Extension’s Partnerships and Peninsulas webpage as part of the launch with plans for additional episodes to be released on the first Monday of every month.

“When I joined MSU Extension in 2016 and began to meet the amazing people and partners across the state, I thought, ‘Wow! I have to get the word out about this!’” said Dwyer.

His idea for Partnerships and Peninsulas was born.

Throughout the series, Dwyer will travel across the state, and as the name implies, both peninsulas, in search of inspiring stories of the difference MSU Extension and their partners are making in Michigan communities.

The first three episodes released are a mix of traditional programs and programs that respond to emerging Michigan needs. The first, “Why Veterans Matter,” interviews MSU Extension specialist Adam Ingrao, who honorably served in the U.S. Army and who now makes sure no veteran is left behind. “Living the 4-H Life” centers around Julie Chapin, the former Michigan 4-H state leader and director of MSU Extension’s youth development branch. In “Growing resources for farmers,” MSU Extension educator Suzanne Pish shares her story of working to help farmers and those who work with them to access resources during stressful times.
