andy shaw & the mommy blogs

Get ready for a VERY lively episode this week. Lougan and Jackie talked with the hilarious Andy Shaw, director of enrollment communications at York College of Pennsylvania. Andy loves his job because he makes stuff that get students to come to his college. He also teaches a class about comedy for freshmen to help them build confidence in public speaking. Andy is a new father, and that’s become a very important part of his life. He has an upcoming book titled The New Mom’s Guide to New Dads which helps new mom’s understand the minds of new dads. We talk about that and his experiences being a dad!

It’s been a crazy week, so Jackie and Lougan decided to do a quick episode about what we’ve been up to. We’ve both received new job titles for the new academic year, and we’re both hard at work gearing up for the new semester. We also talk about our goals for the year, Jackie’s “reading” habits and Lougan’s favorite video game of all time Persona 4.
