Episode 68 is with Jessica Philo, who recently started working as a Student Services Specialist at the University of Pittsburgh. Jessica shares with us how she got into higher education (she was an advertising major in undergrad) and we chat about what life is like in a big city compared to a smaller town. Jessica explains why everyone should hug the folks on campus who schedule classes, as she gives us a behind the scenes look at the process. We also talk about Jessica’s blog, J Seeks Joy, and where she comes up with content inspiration.

Episode 47 welcomes recent graduate Brady Griffith, Life Coach at Maryville University. Naturally, we talk about Star Wars because Lougan had seen the new release since our last episode…more than once. Don’t worry, listeners, we cut out the spoilers. We determine that Lougan is in fact not a Star Wars uberfan, but does own a $600 lightsaber. We finally get around to asking Brady what a Life Coach really is, and he explained the relatively new concept in Higher Education and at Maryville. As a Maryville alumnus, Brady describes his transition from student to Life Coach, and how it benefits his new position. We’re excited to bring Brady back on the show to hear how the program has evolved!
