Executive Director Ted Barron chats about the who, what, when, where, how and why of the DeBartolo Performing Art Center’s new podcast, Establishing Shot. A short and sweet intro gets to the heart of why the center is tackling storytelling one interesting and intimate episode at a time.
When Ted hosts and guests stop in the center’s Browning Cinema to discuss film, performances, news, and trends in the vast world of the arts get ready for insights, laughs, recommendations and surprising discoveries. Establishing Shot may just challenge your assumptions about the arts and the arts at the University of Notre Dame.
