SHILO BROOKS: Greetings listeners,

We have some great episodes in store on season four of the Free Mind Podcast. This season is particularly special to me because it will be my final season as your host. Beginning with Season 5, my colleague and friend Matt Burgess will assume hosting duties for all future episodes. Matt is a faculty fellow at the Benson Center and an Assistant Professor in Environmental Studies at CU. The future of the free mind podcast is bright, and there are exciting things in store.    

As for me, I’m departing the University of Colorado for Princeton University, where I’ll be teaching and directing the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions.  It has been my honor to create and host this podcast. I’m grateful to the thousands of listeners who have given us their time and attention. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me by email at Princeton, and always remember to think freely.
