Four high-achieving students redefine what it means to be successful beyond the books.

Traditionally, a wooden spoon is given to the person who comes last in a race. Instead of lingering on the failure of coming last, that same wooden spoon can be put to work and become something useful.

The Wooden Spoon is a podcast about success, but more importantly, what success really looks like after you finish school and take on the real world. It's no longer defined by a grade - it's about living a successful life that is unique to you.

Insightful and entertaining

As someone who just finished my doctoral studies, I have experienced my share of anxiety related to personal and perceived success. This podcast has reminded me that others cannot assign us value — that is something we must do for ourselves. The Fab Four are wise beyond their years, and this comes through in each episode as they are given a chance to share their experiences and insights. Plus, they have great chemistry and I often found myself smiling or even laughing out loud. Thank you so much for the thoughtful podcast, and I hope there will be more seasons to come!

The Wooden Spoon

Just finished every episode and let me just say...I AM OBSESSED! I loved every single episode so much! I’m so glad I’ve listened to this podcast! It has opened my eyes to so many topics that are very hard to discuss with others! Just listening to these four people talk about it helps me a lot. Especially learning about what they think of these topics and it helps me personally of seeing how others struggle in different ways. I love that they aren’t scared to take on these tough topics! I need more episodes...ASAP!
