Our first podcast is called Job Interviews, and it’s all about helping young people navigate education and careers as they take their first steps into adulthood. We do this by recording meaningful conversation with adults from all walks of life. We talk about successes, failures, embarrassments, hopes, regrets, everything. The goal is to give the audience a real sense of how the adult world actually works. This way, the listener can benefit from the combined experiences and wisdom of a wide range of adult perspectives–a much wider range than they would probably have access to otherwise. 

An honest conversation with an open adult can change a student’s life for the better. Most people, if they’re lucky, might have one or two deep conversations like that throughout their whole education. We bring you a new one every two weeks.
