great podcast

I listened to Siqi Mou's episode which resonated me a lot. It's rarely to listen to a Chinese guest from other podcasts. As an international student, I enjoyed her episode and learned from her experience. We have so many similar experience. Love this podcast!

Great podcast!

This podcast covers some helpful topics (especially for anxious college students like me) in a fun, engaging way. Must watch.

Robbie Samuels, host & guest ,

Great resource for all aspiring entrepreneurs

What a cool project - students learn the behind the scenes of hosting a podcast and interviews with highly successful young entrepreneurs inspire all of us. I love how the host pulls from the conversation advice the guest would give to aspiring entrepreneurs to help them avoid pitfalls along their entrepreneurial journey. The on air feedback from current students at the end is quite unique and gives a great spin to the usual interview format.
