Student centered podcast for colleges!
I love the idea and execution. Great interviews and interesting perspectives from Penn Law students.
Love hearing from classmates
With the abrupt end to the semester, I really miss hanging out with classmates. This has been such a nice way to hear from people I either didn’t know or haven’t had a chance to check-in on. Jeremiah is such a great interviewer as well. So glad this exists and look forward to each episode!
