Lauren Shauer: I’m Lauren, a 4th year majoring in criticism (it’s a very prestigious program). My eyes are two different colors (as a kind, random stranger once called, “dog eyes”). I’m from North Carolina, which I’m strangely proud of. It’s probably because the Cookout milkshake was created there. I also have a phobia of men wearing sweatpants. Hit me up if you ever want to talk about solving racial/socioeconomic inequality….

Peter Stebbins, the amalgam of Catherine and Steve, has been described as “about equal to the sum of his parts.” A 4th year sociology major, he strongly believes in the power of music as simultaneously therapy, an aphrodisiac, a motivator, and laxative. As co-host with Lauren Schauer of the new program, “Stebbins to the Schauer,” he aims to provide listeners with an eclectic mix of melodies to fit the rhythms of their lives.
Hobbies include, but are not limited to, thinking of puns, locating baked goods, and running off said baked goods.
