So happy SEAP is making these podcasts so I can keep learning!
I am so grateful that the Cornell is posting these podcasts for us all. I miss going to the SEAP brown bag talks at Cornell, and thanks to these podcasts I can keep learning from the amazing guests even though I am no longer on campus. I know it takes a lot of work to publish a podcast. I have one myself. Thank you! This podcast is furthering the mission of the program and of Cornell.
