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.
In our podcast, The Devils’ Share, we encourage alumni to share their stories and thoughts about topics that interest all Duke graduates, often 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 providing a small portion of those stories to their Duke community: the Devils’ Share, which we’ll share with you.
Our most recent series connects with our annual special issue, in which the magazine staff gets out of the way and asks the Duke community—students, alumni, faculty, and staff—to share stories on a particular theme. This year’s theme is “realization,” and we have three compelling stories of realizations by alumni and staff. Take a listen!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
And we also sometimes take deep dives into bigger topics. Here, for example, is our award-winning three-part audio documentary of the 1969 Allen Building takeover by Black students.
