Among life’s simpler pleasures, there may be nothing better than having brunch or grabbing coffee with one of the most interesting people you know.

With a Side of Knowledge is a podcast created with just that idea in mind.

Giving you the chance to get to know a fascinating scholar or professional through an informal conversation about their work, each episode is about 30 minutes long. And true to the show’s name, we record onsite at a restaurant on or near Notre Dame’s campus—ambient noise and all.

Some guests are members of the Notre Dame faculty, but many are visitors from elsewhere who have come to campus to do anything from give a lecture or performance to participate in a fellowship program.

The show is hosted by the Provost Office’s Ted Fox, with new episodes released every other Thursday. If you’re in the South Bend area, you can also hear it Sundays at noon on radio station WSND (88.9 FM).

Here’s a preview of what you can expect:

You can also search “With a Side of Knowledge” in your favorite podcast app or browse episodes by season right here on the website.

In the interest of making the show more broadly accessible, we can provide transcripts of select episodes upon request. Please contact host Ted Fox for more information.
