Welcome to the Devils’ Share

Duke Magazine is one of the most powerful ways Duke maintains its connection with alumni. In our constant interaction with alumni, we’ve been moved to share their voices more than five issues a year allow us to. What’s more, we love the intimacy and connection that only sound, only the human voice can provide.

So we’ve started a podcast, The Devils’ Share, in which we encourage alumni to share their stories and thoughts about topics that interest all Duke graduates, usually in not much longer than it takes to ride between campuses on the C1. Duke alumni have an enormous bounty of stories in their lives, their work, and their families. We believe they won’t mind prov

iding a small portion of those stories to their Duke community: the Devils’ Share, which we’ll share with you.

In our first series we asked Duke alumni to think about their work lives, and the complexity of finding the path that led them where they needed to go. Thus, welcome to “Now What?” the first series of  Devils’ Share podcasts. Please send us your thoughts at dukemag@duke.edu, subject line “podcast” or “Devils’ Share.” We’d love your thoughts. Meanwhile, please click here and enjoy “Now What?”

Apart from our themed series, we often tell stories from the Duke community in audio form, whether attending events or bringing to life some underconsidered aspect of the Duke community. For examples of those stories, please visit our Audio Postcards page.

  1. Dear Devil’s Share Podcast Team,

    Hi! My name is Cara Peterson (Duke ’15) and I have an idea for your podcast I’d love to pitch!

    As you know, “Effortless Perfection” is a term that was coined in 2003 at Duke; it’s “the sense that one must have the perfect grades, perfect body, perfect social life, all without any visible effort.”

    Feel free to read my most recent article with Inside Higher Ed (https://www.insidehighered.com/views/2019/01/29/trying-conform-myth-effortless-perfection-damaging-women-undergraduates-mental) on the topic and let me know if you would be interested in further discussing a potential collaboration. I’ve recently written a book on the topic and am happy to speak about it.

    I was on a panel with for National Women’s History Museum late last year on “College Women: Past Present and Future” and will be on a women’s panel with Jean O’Barr and Professor Deondra Rose for the upcoming Reunion Weekend in April. Plus I speak at high schools, so I’ve had some practice!

    Thanks so much and I hope to hear back from you soon!

    Best,
    Cara
