ISU Anderson Center to host third monthly podcast/discussion luncheon; topic is ‘Hot Chastity’

Posted October 14, 2011

The Anderson Gender Resource Center at Idaho State University, through a grant from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, is hosting a series of podcast luncheons this academic year, with the next one set Oct. 26 with the title “Hot Chastity.”

Meant to serve as a casual and interactive, yet informative, way to open up discussions about various relevant topics, these luncheon podcasts are free and open to everyone. 

This podcast, the third in the series, will begin at 12:15 p.m. at the Bengal Cafe in the Pond Student Union on the ISU Pocatello campus. Sandwiches will be served to the first 30 attendees and the event is free and open to all.

The podcasts, which are a form of online radio shows, all come from the popular and critically acclaimed website sexreally.com. The topic for this month is chastity and all the various reasons to remain abstinent until marriage. The event will include discussions by different people who all decided to wait and how this decision has affected their lives, relationships and outlook on sex.

Jennifer L. Seaich, who is the director of the ISU Campus Ministry, St John's Catholic Student Center, will be facilitating the discussion and share stories from her years working with students at ISU. She hopes to initiate conversation about something that affects a lot of people of our campus, yet is rarely talked about in a casual setting.

"We are really excited to have Jennifer join us for this event," said Åsa Burlin, AmeriCorps member at the Anderson Center. "If abstinence is to be a realistic choice, we have to be able to talk about it; the advantages as well as the challenges."”

For questions or more information about the event, please contact the Anderson Center at 282-2805.
