Podward State

On this episode of Podward State, hosts Matt, Matt, and Sam talk to Onward State sports editor Will Pegler about everything surrounding the Big Ten's reinstatement of their Fall football season, including the Big Ten's mitigation protocols and the overall safety of football commencing in State College, which recently was named one of the fastest-growing hotspots in the country.

Later, we talk to two Onward State staffers, Teagan Staudenmeier and Grace Cunningham, who experienced Penn State's on-campus and off-campus quarantine protocols. 

Staudenmeier spent five days in Penn State's on-campus isolation dorms at Eastview Terrace before receiving her negative coronavirus test. While in there, she experienced less than ideal room conditions and a lack of communication from Penn State administrators.

Cunningham quarantined from her off-campus apartment and also dealt with a concerning lack of communication, especially the lack of efficient contact tracing protocols.
