Overall great production
I enjoy that it’s not too long and can do something while listening to it. It’s very well made, things flowed, obviously room for improvement but overall great delivery of a first podcast. As a Dietetics and Nutrition masters student at FIU I really enjoyed Dr. Coccia speaking about different internship opportunities. Looking forward to the next one!
Extremely informative and innovative
I love Dr. Coccia’s use of technology to keep students informed.
