The FogPod is the official podcast of the San Francisco Foghorn, the University of San Francisco’s student newspaper. We offer a deep dive into our stories through interviews with the Foghorn staff, USF students, faculty, and administration officials.
FogPod 2022 Episode 1: Don Voyage
Is it time to change USF’s mascot? The Foghorn staff managed to do it in 1931 when they changed it from “Grey Fog” to Don Francisco. Ninety-one years later we’re wondering, does the Don still represent us? Should a university that prides itself on its mission of social justice have a colonialist figure representing it? In the first 2022 episode of the Fogpod, Zoe and Nora, editor in chief and managing editor, chat with President of the Culturally Focused Clubs Council Jada Commodore, and ASUSF Senate VP of Internal Affairs Ariana Anayat, to answer these questions and more. Produced by USFtv correspondent Hersh Singh.
