CUI Bono Cast

CUI Bono Podcast Logo

The CUI Bono Cast is a regular podcast that features lively academic extracurricular presentations and conversations happening throughout Concordia University Irvine. The CUI Bono club started as a volunteer group of faculty and students. The podcast is an expansion of that spirit of service, as it amplifies the work of various groups on campus, from the Living Learning Communities, to the Honors Program, to the Crosswise Institute.

In addition to curating the best of our outside-of-class conversations, we will also let the world eavesdrop on the beloved CUI Bono talks and conversations themselves, and will occasionally include special interviews on current issues. Since CUI Bono asks Who Stands to Benefit? this podcast will help listeners answer that question as they apply the tools of the liberal arts to life in our complex times. You don’t have to be a brainiac or bookish type, just someone with a delight in the life of the mind and an interest in wrestling through the big questions and ideas that have preoccupied people throughout the ages.

You can subscribe to the podcast on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify. You can also download or stream directly from here. Occasional livestreaming of interviews via Instagram and Facebook Live will also take place. Check back here for show notes, slides, and relevant links mentioned on each episode.

The virtual emcee of the 2020-21 academic year is sociology professor Dr. Kristen Koenig (2020 CUI Bono Faculty Member of the Year). CUI Bono content is under the leadership of philosophy professor Dr. Daniel Deen. Dr. Jeff Mallinson, veteran podcaster and chair of the History and Political Thought department, records and produces the show, along with volunteer mentees from the ranks of CUI Bono and the Honors Living Learning Community (LLC), which Dr. Mallinson serves as the Faculty-in-Residence.
