In this, the penultimate episode of the College Info Geek Podcast (before we change the name), we’ve decided to go with a pure reader Q&A.
Usually, we take 5 questions we’ve received from the various corners of the internet, limiting them to somewhat productive topics.
Instead of using that format again, we’re running through as many questions as we can in 45 minutes, and they aren’t limited to productivity.
