With a Side of Knowledge is a podcast produced by the Office of the Provost at the University of Notre Dame. It brings listeners informal interviews with fascinating scholars and professionals from both Notre Dame and elsewhere that take place over brunch.

The third episode of season two, “On Photography and When Lightning Strikes,” was released Thursday, Nov. 15, and features Notre Dame photographer Matt Cashore.

At Notre Dame, Cashore’s name is synonymous with photography. His 20-plus years visually chronicling the University, its faculty, and its students have produced scores of unforgettable images captured both on and near campus and around the world. In 2016, he was named the University Photographer of the Year by the University Photographers Association of America.

In this episode, Cashore talks about his experiences at Notre Dame—including how he got a now classic shot of the Golden Dome beneath a sky full of lightning—as well as photography more generally and his tips for taking great photos. He and host Ted Fox also discuss his new coffee table book, This Place Called Notre Dame. Published earlier this year by Notre Dame Press, it pairs Cashore’s images with text by Notre Dame Magazine’s Kerry Temple.
