One year ago, we all retreated to the safe sanctuary of our homes to wait out a global pandemic. Within days, CSUF switched completely over to virtual learning. Zoom, the 4-sided, one-dimensional, glowing box of light and faces, became a lifeline and constant. A menagerie of mute buttons, breakout rooms, chats, “shares” and cameras, all delivered via indirect eye contact and spotty WIFI. Completely new terrain for us all. But students improvised and created virtual classrooms out of their personal spaces — bedrooms, garages, living rooms, backyards and even cars. Life and education intersected multiple times a day. Week in and week out. Month after month for over a year. Student learning has continued. But that doesn’t mean it’s been easy. In January 2021, we gathered a company of actors from the Department of Theatre and Dance. Our goal: to create a space for long-overdue community conversations about COVID, quarantine, virtual learning and the complexity of students’ lives before, during and after they log in and out of Zoom. The podcast, “Beyond the Square” was born.

The goal of Child Chat is to broadcast important and necessary topics within the Child Development field geared towards students of Child and Adolescent Studies (CAS) at CSUF. Each episode focuses on a child development topic or on experiences of CAS students. Episodes highlight key ideas, research, and debates relevant to students who intend to work with children. Child Chat aims to be an outlet outside of the classroom where concepts and research come to life through engaging conversations with professionals in the field as well as with other students. The podcast is hosted and co-produced by CAS students under the supervision of Dr. Claudia G. Pineda, Assistant Professor in Child and Adolescent Studies at CSUF.
