On this episode of Podward State, hosts Matt Ogden, Matt Paolizzi, and Sam Brungo talk Onward State's hockey beat writer Acacia Aster Broder about the upcoming hockey season and how the team is shaping up to perform after weird offseason and the departure of many seniors and team leaders from the previous season.
Later, we chat with Onward State's social media manager and football beat writer Ryan Parsons about what went wrong during Penn State's 30-23 lost against Nebraska this past weekend and how they got to the 0-4 position they're currently in. He also touches on Penn State basketball's media day and the surprise statements a few players made about former head coach Patrick Chambers.
Then, Ryan is joined by associate editor Colleen Nersten and Onward State's Managing Editor Matt DiSanto to discuss and review all of the new State College food joints that have opened since the beginning of the semester. Restaurants reviewed include Crust & Crumb Cafe, Weirdough's, Justice Chicken, and Shake Smart.
