Located within UT's Moody College of Communication, this podcast studio is a startup of startups. Robert Quigley, associate professor of practice and an associate director at the school, started the Drag in 2019 to merge student and professional journalism and produce unique, Texas-specific content. Darkness: The Orange Tree became the Drag's first smashing true-crime success in 2020, with over 4,000 ratings on Apple Podcasts. This year, Katey Outka, the Drag's associate director and a UT journalism professor, worked with student Ashley Miznazi to launch the production house's second long-form, true-crime exploration, Darkness: Austin Bomber. Count on the Drag for wonderfully chilling content.
