At the beginning of June, our small staff grew. We welcomed two interns for the summer, Adam Hudnut-Beumler and Karissa Wheeler.
Karissa is a rising sophomore at the University of the South (Sewanee) in Tennessee, where she studies English and Theatre. She became interested in working with the Sunday Evening Club because of its faith-based media work. She hopes to explore possible careers in journalism and broadcast. Coming from Nashville, Chicago was a bit of an adjustment. But after two weeks in the city, she is liking what she has seen so far.
Adam is a rising senior at Princeton University, where he studies Religion, with a focus on American culture. An avid fan of podcasting, Adam sought out the Sunday Evening Club to learn about the technical side of audio production. After graduation, he hopes to continue studies in a doctoral program in American Studies or Religious Studies. Fun fact: Years ago, his grandfather, Robert Hudnut, was a guest on our program 30 Good Minutes.
