Life Work Balances is a weekly audio podcast dedicated to discussions with and stories told by people that work with college students about what they do outside of work, either for fun or to relieve stress and find balance. It launched in February 2012, with the goal of creating a space for folks to share their stories, to show student affairs professionals as three dimensional people, and also to put out information to other professionals about what their peers do to relieve stress and find balance in a field that can feel all consuming at times.
Past guests have included Dr. Dafina Lazarus Stewart (Faculty in the Higher Education and Student Affairs program at Bowling Green State University) Meredith Mickaliger (Community Director at Occidental College) Dr. Glenn Deguzman (Assistant Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards at UC Berkley), Eric Stoller (higher education consultant and blogger) and Heidi Levine (Dean of Students at Cornell College and ACPA Past President). Some of the topics discussed in episodes have included the benefits of working out and playing sports, journaling, watching movies, roller derby, playing, listening to, and writing music, community organizing, civic engagement, and finding a social community to name a few.
Episodes are archived for free in the iTunes store, or can be streamed or downloaded from lifeworkbalances.wordpress.com. If anyone is interested in being interviewed for Life Work Balances, they can email the host, Conor McLaughlin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
