Maine CenterThe Greater Good

The Greater Good is a podcast devoted to complex and emerging issues in law, business, and policy. In each episode, we explore how these three fields contribute to the greater good of the state of Maine and the nation as a whole. Beginning in Summer 2020, we will pivot slightly to a hybrid webinar/podcast format, with an initial focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. The Greater Good is produced by the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center, a consortium of graduate programs that prepares current and future leaders to solve our state and our nation’s most pressing challenges. Listen on our webpage, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also find us on Twitter @greatergoodpod.
