    Episode 35: Justin's study abroad in London-->Recall-->Self Quarantine

    I'm joined by my friend Justin and he walks me through his rather short study abroad experience. 

    He was studying in London for the semester and as news broke out about the pandemic, Justin was recalled back home. He's currently under self quarantine for the next ~2 weeks and we talk about how he's feeling, and the rapid developments in this situation.

    Episode 33: Coming back from the West, social distancing and how USC is handling the issue.

    Hey everyone. This time, I talk to my friend Sunjay during the COVID-19 pandemic and we discuss how our lives have changed as a result. For some the changes are minor, but for others it's their entire livelihoods. While we have to practice social distancing, we shouldn't forget about our friends. Hope you enjoy.

    Episode 32: Caleb takes on Bio Medical Engineering and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at Stony Brook (Stony Brook, New York)

    Episode 32: Caleb takes on Bio Medical Engineering and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at Stony Brook (Stony Brook, New York)

    I gotta admit, Caleb is one of the most well-spoken people I've met in my life. He's polite, he's eloquent, and he's a pleasure to talk to. This week Caleb takes me through BME and AMS, two majors that I have zero experience with, and he gives me an overview of how they work at Stony Brook University. He also talks about his passions in 3Diatrics, and his plans for attending medical school. I do sincerely hope that Caleb succeeds. He'd make a great doctor.

    Episode 31: Ridwan, Georgetown and Science Technology & International Affairs (Georgetown, Washington D.C)

    This week, my buddy Ridwan joins me and tells me about the Georgetown experience. A Jesuit school, the experience there is a little different. Sometimes you gotta think about the Problem of God, but religion aside Ridwan tells me about his major, how he chose it and how he carved out a niche at Georgetown

    Episode 30: Art Conservation at Scripps with Lucy (Claremont, California)

    Episode 30: Art Conservation at Scripps with Lucy (Claremont, California)

    Lucy joins me this week and tells me about a very different experience. Scripps College is an all women's institution and Lucy studies Art Conservation and Anthropology. Scripps felt like the right place from the get-go, but that doesn't come without certain struggles. 

    We also talk about the Stuy experience and how we actually did it. Honestly, we don't even know how we did it. We normalized things and somehow got through it. A trial by fire to say the least.
