COLUMBUS, OHIO, OCTOBER 1, 2019 – WOSU Public Media is launching season 2 of the Rivet podcast. Listen in as 16- to 26-year-olds, in their own words, learn how to make what they love doing into their careers – through pathways outside of a four-year degree.

Rivet season 2 highlights opportunities for the next generation of workers in the state’s top industries such as agriculture, insurance and health care. Launching Tuesday, October 1, Rivet is produced and hosted by WOSU’s multimedia producer Leticia Wiggins. Subscribe at, on the WOSU mobile app or wherever you listen.

“WOSU is excited to be creating content that allows audiences to tap into our local programming on their time and allows our producers to stretch their talents beyond the usual broadcast model,” said Tom Rieland, general manager of WOSU Public Media. “That is what podcasting is all about.”

Developed with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Rivet is part of the national initiative American Graduate: Getting to Work which focuses on the essential skills needed for students and workers to succeed in the job markets of today and tomorrow.
