Blazer Banter

Join Eric and Bridget as they banter about John Wood Trail Blazers. They’ll let you know what’s going on around campus and interview special guests, all while being their charming selves! #goblazers #Trailblazerstrong

Eric and Bridget want to provide another connection between John Wood and the community. This idea came about because of the pandemic, but hopefully its usefulness will expand beyond these “unprecedented times.”
