TACOMA, WASH. (Sept. 17, 2018) — PLU's latest podcast series, ``Because We're Lutheran,`` featured two exciting guests in its fourth episode: Acting President Allan Belton and Provost Joanna Gregson.

Pastor Jen Rude engaged in a conversation with the pair about the university’s Lutheran identity, their experiences serving in leadership at an institute of Lutheran higher education and their own spiritual backgrounds.

Later in the podcast, Belton discussed the origins of his now-famous catchphrase “because the world needs more Lutes” and Gregson talked about how PLU’s spiritual identity has helped shape her interactions with students, grow as a professional and find her own path to vocation.
