The Big Rhetorical Podcast (TBR) was conceptualized in the spring of 2018 by Matt Schering and Charles Woods, Ph.D. students studying at Illinois State University. They envision this podcast as a digital platform for scholars of rhetoric and composition, as well as other disciplines, to talk about relevant scholarship within the field while engaging in a lively, academic dialogue. While Charles has taken over primary responsibility for TBR, Matt is still around and involved.
