The Gene Smith Podcast

Welcome to the Gene Smith Podcast where we will be sitting down each month to speak with the Ohio State Senior Vice President & Wolfe Foundation Endowed Athletics Director to talk about the current state of OSU Athletics.

Smith was looking for a way to tell Ohio State’s success stories and celebrate the student-athletes, coaches and staff that make up Ohio State Athletics. To accomplish this goal, The Gene Smith Podcast was born.

In this first episode, Smith covered a variety of topics and outlined his vision and goals for the podcast.

Look for new episodes each month.



Why do a podcast?

“To bring attention to some of the outstanding work that is being done for our student-athletes by different units in our department."
