Decmber 2020 SAN Podcast: Lindsay McKenzie from Inside Higher Ed

We share a wide-ranging conversation with Lindsay McKenzie, who covers state authorization (and other regulatory beats) for Inside Higher Ed.

We discuss how she found her way to state authorization (the story will sound familiar to SAN members), how state authorization fits with other aspects of higher ed regulation, and how she cultivates her sources. We also touch on the Retraction Watch and the work of Ed Yong at the Atlantic. With our usual discussion of musicals at the end, there is truly something for everyone in this episode.
