The Sample: In this episode, Abbie takes us back to the 1920s, and we hunker down in the Book Nook, "a randy temple smelling of socks, wet slickers, vanilla flavoring, face powder, and unread books," as described by Hoagy Carmichael.

With the IU football season well underway, someone has to help the Hoosiers stay in top shape. That person is Keith Caton, the strength and conditioning coach for the IU football team.
Caton's coaching career includes stops at the University of Southern Mississippi, Auburn University, the University of Missouri, Western Kentucky University and Baylor University.
This week on Through the Gates, host Jim Shanahan will discuss IU's training methods with Caton, as well as his role in helping athletes sustain their athletic performance.
We'll also hear from Caryn Hojnicki, sustainability coordinator with Greening Cream & Crimson, an initiative designed to bring more sustainable practices to IU athletics. She'll share her work on the Zero Waste Football project with Janae Cummings in this week's Five Questions segment.
With the world changing by the minute, mental health support is more important than ever... but the way counseling happens is changing too. Elaine Monaghan and Violet Baron talk to the Center for Human Growth's Director Lynn Gilman and Co-Assistant Director Lauren Adams about its unique model as a counseling center fully staffed by graduate students. They also talk about how the counseling center is navigating the pandemic, and what might carry over even once we return to "normal."
This week, Through the Gates host Jim Shanahan speaks with John Nieto Phillips, IU associate vice provost for faculty development and diversity, on the challenge of increasing campus diversity among faculty and students. The conversation addresses a variety of nuances of student and faculty recruitment and touches on questions of competitive hiring, extra burdens on minority faculty, and implicit bias.
