People looking for a weekly glimpse into the outdoors industry have a new resource, thanks to a new podcast from Utah State University. USU’s outdoor product design program is 10 episodes into the Highlander Podcast, a weekly interview with figures in the outdoors industry from Cache Valley to international brands. “It’s just a lot of local stories about the importance of the outdoor industry here,” said Chase Anderson, who works in industry relations for the outdoor product design program. “Whether you’re more on the outdoor recreation side, or you’re a brand producing the products, we just want to tell stories why that’s important to the region.” ... The podcast is an outgrowth of Highlander Magazine, a student-produced publication examining the same topics. Student editor Mady Koller said the staff is getting ready to put out the second print issue, and response so far has been good. ... The podcast is available as “Highlander Podcast” on iTunes and other podcatching software, and episodes and articles are available at https://highlandermag.usu.edu.
