MiddCast features original podcasts from Middlebury College. College campuses have historically offered us the young pulse of our nation, a taste of the future, a version of the right side of history.  Colleges are sites for the germination of movements, where young minds have the time and resources, the mentors and library privilages to develop a full picture of their place in history and their role in the arc of justice.  MiddCast will feature Middlebury’s engagement with this legacy. Dispatches from our campuses, our community about shaping the future.
