5 Reader Questions! Study Tips, Bad Professors, And Work Music (Ep. 33)

Your college questions... answered by men in silly hats.Once per month, my roommate Martin and I get together to answer 5 questions from CIG readers.

I bet the Oracle from Aladdin 3 can’t boast that kind of frequency!

This month, we’re brining my girlfriend Anna into the mix. If you didn’t catch episode 32, Anna is a graphic design student and brings a non-business perspective to the podcast that’s much needed.

Also, her Shrek impersonations put mine to shame.

On this episode, we answer questions on studying notes more efficiently, dealing with bad professors, whether or not you should listen to music while studying, learning to be ok with a job you don’t love, and what personal traits we’d like to cultivate in our own lives.
