LSUCxC Inside the Communication Studios with Jay Ducote

If you missed the live show or the live ustream feed of my interview with LSU Communication Across the Curriculum (@lsucxc), you can watch/listen to the whole thing below!  This was recorded live in Studio 151, Coates Hall, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, La. on 11/17/2010.  There is a slight audio glitch at the very beginning but after that everything works fine.  Enjoy, and let me know what you think!


Here is a table of contents featuring the highlights for those who might not want to watch/listen to the whole thing!
