With the recent passing of Dr. John K. Hartman, a professor who impacted Alek and Doug‘s lives and a great many others, the Keep Your Voice Down hosts decided to honor Hartman with a special episode. Fellow Central Michigan University alums Chad Livengood (Detroit News Politics Editor) and Steve Coon (CMU instructor, Grand Central Magazine advisor) join Alek and Doug to reflect on the life and impact of a truly great journalistic mind, and a loving friend, mentor, husband, and father.

Memorial tributes for Dr. Hartman may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice: The Ashland City Schools Foundation; the Bowling Green Schools Foundation; the Central Michigan University Journalism Hall of Fame; or The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – The James.

The show’s theme is “Howling at the Moon” by D Fine Us, and this week’s outro music is “Pinwheel” by Leva. You can support Keep Your Voice Down with a donation here.
