A Knight Radio closer look at “A Little About a Lot with Ashley and Emily

Mount Saint Mary College upperclassmen Ashley Thomaz and Emily Gursky began their podcast “A Little About A Lot with Ashley and Emily” in November of 2021. This came after the two spent many long hours before embarking on the podcast learning the basics of audio and understanding what the audience wanted to hear as well as the content they wanted to produce.

“Initially the podcast started off as being spontaneous. This was just something that I thought I would just try and occupy my time with. However, as time went on, I started to really enjoy it, and now this podcast has become something that I want to continue doing, even if it is not through Knight radio,” said Thomaz.

Gursky said the topics vary each week. “Week to week, we cover different topics ranging from pop culture to news on campus. The goal in mind is to try to put out topics that we think listeners will be interested in,” she said. Gursky also mentions that learning different mic breaks and transitions has been her favorite part and very rewarding. Besides this, she mentioned a recent guest that was on the show, Jason Mclaren. Mclaren is a coming-to-light comedian based out of Newburgh, N.Y.

You can catch the two on Knight Radio every Wednesday night from 6-7p.m., using the Mixlr: https://mixlr.com/msmcknightradio/
