Amplify Podcast

A podcast created by Associated Students, Inc. at CSUSM.

Amplify was created as a platform for students to have unscripted and unfiltered conversations. This is your podcast to learn more about resources you may need, campus topics, and initiatives all from the student perspective.

Listen to the untold stories from real CSUSM students through Amplify's series of rotating hosts. Whether you're tuning in from California or  a different country, this podcast is made for you, the students.

So we're here. We're talking.

How it Started

In the summer of 2020, a group of 8 creatives from the ASI Media and Communications Team worked began planning what is now Amplify. Recognizing that we would spend the Fall 2020 semester online, we wanted to create a platform for students to talk about real issues and provide a platform to help educate students on resources through genuine conversations and discussions

"We're here and we're talking" was a phrase casually said in our weekly Zoom meeting during the early stages of the planning process. It has stuck with us as a reminder that ASI is for students, by students and has the ability to amplify student voices to create an impact here at CSUSM. Check out the teaser below!
