EXCELLENT AND MUCH NEEDED 10/10 RECOMMEND!!!

These are much needed conversations and a very timely emergence of conversations about life post-grad. In the wake of “the great resignation” and with an impending recession looming it is important that as a community we come together and speak because there is great value in all the perspectives shared on this pod. It give insight into different avenues and options persons have. GREAT CONVERSATIONS WITH GREAT VALUE!!!!
