âCyberlogy is a podcast on all things cyber, all of the different areas that we have in and around DSU and how they’re all looping in emerging computer, networking and coding technologies,â said the producer of podcast, Xander Morrison.
The podcast debuted last semester.
The idea for a podcast on campus came from Strategic Communications Coordinator Jen Burris.
âWe’re always looking for ways to showcase the incredible talent we have on campus, both faculty and students, and we thought this was a great way to highlight our mission, DSU’s technology mission. that’s involved in all of our majors, âsaid Jen Burris, Strategic Communications Coordinator, Cyberology Co-Facilitator.
Burris is also a co-host, along with Associate Professor Gabe Mydland.
âJen extended an invitation to all of us in faculty, to anyone who would be interested in being a part of the process, so I immediately responded because the technology and the way it is used on this campus, there is so much of different applications and it’s so fascinating, âsaid Gabe Mydland, associate professor, college of education, Cyberology co-host.
Cyberology is a monthly podcast. The group covered a wide variety of topics.
âWe have esports, artificial intelligence, the next episode that’s going to be released is game design, we have one on the cyber-medical relationship,â Morrison said.
Morrison, who is the podcast’s producer, is responsible for making sure the audio is ready for listeners.
âBy removing all the background noise as much as possible, I listen to it all and see if there are any big pieces that I would like to take out,â Morrison said. âThe longest and most time consuming part is removing all the ‘ah’, ‘uh’, tongue clicks, people who stutter on their words. “
Cyberology is not just for those in the state of Dakota. It’s for anyone who wants to listen and learn more.
“We are still learning the measures of its success, but we are getting regular downloads for each episode, they continue, we even have listeners in other countries, in Belgium, in Israel, in Egypt, in different places, so this is cool to see us have international reach, âsaid Burris.
The group hopes this podcast can help people learn more about something that plays a huge role in our world today.
“It’s just such a big part of our lives these days, from our cellphones to the machines we sit in front of, the machines other people sit in front of, I just hope that somehow expands understanding and piquing their curiosity to learn more about what technology can and does, âsaid Mydland.
