This is the official podcast of the University of Illinois Psychology department. "Sixth and Daniel" spotlights the people who have at one time or another considered this location a home away from home.

    Jacob Triplett

    Jacob Triplett graduated in 2021, so this was my first time speaking with a NEW member of our alumni family.

    He is a Senior HR Manager for Proctor and Gamble and is eager to establish a psych grad pipeline to that well-established company.

    We talked about recruiting on the campus, what it is like working for such a huge place of business, his time working for the UIUC Career Center and the services they provide, RomComs, being a student during COVID, and the most powerful dinner party of all time.

    We packed a lot in. Enjoy!

    If you are a current student and wish to reach out to Jacob about anything we discussed, email him at triplett.j.1@pg.com

    Amy Charvat

    Amy Charvat pops by Sixth & Daniel to give insight into the world of Occupational Therapy.

    We discuss her decision to step out of her comfort zone in choosing a bigger university than initially planned, plus how she overcame her struggles to find a sense of family and routine in a new place.

    Through the "Fast Five," we also cover aromatics, summer trips, and the balance of honesty vs. kindness.

    Keeping it close to home once again with our latest guest, Matt Difanis. After leaving the halls of Sixth & Daniel, Matt pursued his law degree while becoming a practicing Realtor. We delve into how his work in real estate has evolved since then, especially his work with teaching courses on implicit bias and his role in eliminating housing discrimination.

    Plus, we get into a local lesser-known ice cream treat, recreating "The Never Ending Story" and the transformation of campus into a micro-urban setting.

    It is time to kick off the new year with new guests! Dr. Dohleman joined me to discuss her career path from UIUC to huge groundbreaking companies like Nike and AbbVie...spoiler alert...it all started at a job fair on campus!

    We tap into her upcoming talk discussing how industry trends are defining the workplace of the future. 

    Plus, a Fast Five section filled with the Harry Potter universe, football's Birthday, and the American songbook.

    Please leave a 5-star rating on the service you are listening to if you like what you hear. It will continue to help the show grow. Thanks!

    Lisa Sullivan

    My first "townie" guest! I had the pleasure of talking with Lisa Sullivan, the Director of Marketing and Communication for "Salt & Light."

    We kick things off in a "normal" fashion...discussing scary movies, the pains of menu planning, and famous lunch guests.

    We then settled into what it is like to return to the workforce after taking time off to raise a family, the depths of how Salt & Light serves the community, and her unique perspective of campus life as a student, townie, and mother.

    James "Jimmy" Carter

    Maximizing the potential of your mind and body is Jimmy's specialty. He is the owner of Ingrained2Train in Naperville, Illinois. 

    We discussed his journey to unlocking that desire to help others from stepping foot on campus after his first year at UIUC. 

    He also broke down exactly how difficult it can be as a student-athlete one day and then run your own business later in life. 

    Jimmy gives great tips and perspectives to new students and potential entrepreneurs. 

    As per usual on Sixth & Daniel, we also branched out and discussed pizza, Ghostbusters, the legend of Giovanti's chicken strips, and heading to the Rose Bowl!

    Be sure to subscribe to Sixth & Daniel wherever you are listening now. :)
