Great perspective on issues faced by young Australians. Also love the collaboration with a business who specialised in career counselling. Great job Luke and Sarge.

Practical and Insightful

Luke and Sarge do a fantastic job of breaking down the barriers between school, university and the workforce. They speak to a wide range of industry professionals who aren’t afraid sharing their experiences. There’s an episode for everyone!

Wish this was around when I was at University

Listening to Luke and Sarge discuss different career paths and opportunities has made me realize how little I knew coming out of high school and university. The conversational nature of the podcast offers a unique perspective into what different careers may hold for different people.

Despite being three years in the work force these interviews have also offered insights that I plan to implement in my own career pathway.
