Claremont Graduate University’s founding president James Blaisdell once wrote that “the center of a college is in great conversation.”

We believe this rings true today, and we’re committed to keeping the Flame burning through podcasts that showcase CGU’s diverse community of scholars, their innovative research, and the great conversations taking place on campus.
