Thank you!

This podcast has been so helpful for a new coordinator like myself. It is concise, interesting, fun, and so, so informative. Thank you Derek and the entire team for giving us another helpful resource throughout the AP process!

Fun and informative!

I love these podcasts. They are full of great information, AND are humorous too. Having actual coordinators as guests lets me know that I’m not alone in this.
