VERMILLION, S.D. – Michael Ewald, '14 B.S., host of the University of South Dakota’s podcast Credit Hour, recapped the series on the program’s final episode of season three.

Ewald reviewed the answers provided by many of the podcast’s guests to the question—“what do you know for sure?”

“I know for sure I was lucky to end up back at USD—first in media relations, then as a part-time podcast host and finally as a student getting to pursue my dream of a career in law,” said Ewald, a third-year Knudson School of Law student who is set to graduate this spring. “I know for sure that education is life-changing because it changed mine.”

Credit Hour is the USD’s podcast highlighting the achievement, research and scholarship of its staff, students, alumni and faculty. Started in the Spring of 2018, Ewald hosted the podcast as he attended law school. He interviewed over 90 USD community members, including three current and former U.S. senators, a congressman and a former South Dakota governor. Credit Hour hosted two special series on COVID-19 and criminal justice reform last year. A diverse array of guests, including artists, scientists, and members of the medical field, frequented the program.
