Behind the Brick - Episode 3: Motherhood at Miami

"Motherhood at Miami" is the third episode of The Miami Student's podcast, Behind the Brick, which is released on Fridays every two weeks. The inspiration behind the series is to explore unfiltered parts of life at Miami University that aren’t so glamorous — the slices of college life that can't be scrolled by on Instagram or showcased through Snapchat stories.

In this episode your host, Julia Plant, talks with senior Shiloh Eklund about her experience balancing her life as a full-time college student and a full-time mom for her almost-4-year-old Will. When does she study? Does she have any free time? What's dating like when you have a kid?

This podcast was produced and edited by Julia Plant, with supervising production by Ceili Doyle, narration by Julia Plant and music from YouTube's FreeMusic channel.
