Witt Wednesday Podcast

Each summer, Wittenberg University hosts the “Witt Wednesday Podcast” to highlight our alumni community and to allow them to share advice with our students. New podcast episodes become available weekly and can be played on all major podcast platforms.

Summer 2022 Season: Leading from the Back

Most people do not begin their careers in leadership or management positions. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t demonstrate leadership from the earliest moments of a new entry-level position. This season of the podcast will focus on alumni, their perspectives on leadership, and their advice for students who are about to begin their career journey.

The first episode drops on Wednesday, May 25!

Heath QueenPodcast Host: Alumnus Heath Queen has been the host of the Witt Wednesday Podcast, starting with its first season in 2021. Heath has also served on staff for the university since 2017 in various career development roles, including serving as the Co-Director for the Communication and Business Leadership Experience from 2017-2021. Throughout his time on staff and as an alumnus, he grew to love meeting and engaging with alumni across the country as they supported the career goals of current Wittenberg Tigers. He currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is finishing his Master of Divinity degree at Luther Seminary.
