In this installment of the Perspectives on Leadership speaker series, we will hear from innovative local podcasters who call the state of Alabama home. Kevin Halbrook, Assistant Coordinator of UA's Center for Instructional Technology has several podcasts including Where is the Line? (true crime), Thick Smoke and Loud Music (interviews in a dive bar), and Bless Our Hearts (interviews of LGBTQ+ students in Alabama). John Hammontree is the producer and host of the Reckon Interview, a longform podcast focused on discussions with some of the South's most interesting minds. He's also managing editor of Reckon by AL.com, an in-depth and investigative brand he spearheaded the launch of in 2017.

Marquette Jones is a creative media instructor at the University of Alabama and hosts a podcast (Directing Magic) dedicated to women in the entertainment industry. Will Sorrell is pursuing a joint Master of Divinity and MBA at Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School and Brock School of Business and hosts Ergonomy, a podcast which explores faith and work in the future economy.
