This is the first time I ventured out of College Drive and into the city of Decorah. My first interview of the year (since Todd Pedlar's interview is a later release of an interview we did this summer) was with Mike Blevins, Assistant Manager atJava John's Coffee House. If you know Mike as the Java John's barista but you do not know much more about him, get ready for a great story full of ups and downs and full of turns. We are privileged to have someone like Mike in the community, and I hope this interview helps some of you get to know him a little more. Here it is:
In this episode I interview Todd Pedlar, physics professor here at Luther College. We talk a lot about the liberal arts education and students at Luther College. Todd does some exciting work with his physics students at Luther, and he is also one of the biggest Paideia cheerleaders out there.
It was really interesting to hear about his path, and to talk to someone so committed to Luther College and the liberal arts experience. So here it is, enjoy!
