February 17, 2020: “Matt Salton on the Democratic Primaries and a Look at Gettysburgives”

00:00 / 1:04:00

In season three, episode fourteen of “On Target,” Pontz and Mangala discuss Gettysburgives and how Gettysburg approaches fundraising more broadly. Then, Pontz sits down with Matt Salton ’20 to discuss the state of the Democratic field after the New Hampshire Primary.

Bullet Points

  • We are getting a new parking lot (1:30)
  • Discussion of Gettysburgives (4:45)
  • Bullet Report: Update on Gettysburg College Athletics (see more in our sports section) (31:45)
  • Interview with Matt Salton ’20 (33:20)

A Note on the Audio Quality: We recorded in an alternate studio this week, and, although this did not occur during the sound check, we evidently had significant feedback during the episode such that there is some crackling that you will hear throughout this episode. If you can believe it, what you will hear is about 80 percent better than what we started with, but there was only so much of it that could be edited out. We should be back in our regular studio next week, so hopefully everything will be back to normal. Our apologies for the poor sound quality here.
