UK Alumni Association launching From the Blue podcast

Do you want to hear interesting stories about UK alumni and the paths their lives took after college? Do you want to hear some interesting behind-the-scenes stories you may not have heard before?

The University of Kentucky Alumni Association has launched a podcast, From the Blue, which features UK alumni interviewing their fellow UK alumni. Listeners will hear conversations between UK graduates that have journeyed through many walks of life after leaving campus. Guests will tell nostalgic stories about UK but with new and surprising perspectives.

“Our mission at the UK Alumni Association is to keep our alumni connected to UK and each other,” said UK Alumni Association Executive Director Jill Smith. “We are excited to meet alumni where they are and foster meaningful connections through this digital platform. We hope our alumni will learn something new, profound, entertaining or perhaps surprising from fellow alumni or an old friend on the From the Blue podcast.”

The first episode features former UK basketball player and philanthropist Jamal Mashburn in conversation with George Wright, UK Alumni Association Hall of Distinguished Alumni inductee and interim vice president for institutional diversity at UK.

On this episode, you’ll hear from two former editors-in-chief of the Kentucky Kernel. Duane Bonifer, journalism and political science graduate from the class of 1991, sits down with fellow journalism graduate and mentor Jack Guthrie. Jack graduated in 1963 and left his mark on UK and the state of Kentucky in many ways. While they now live in different parts of the country, they remain connected by the spirit of UK and the Kentucky Kernel.
