How to Become an Adult – An Evening Chat with My Friends Simon and Jamie (Ep. 77)

Simon, Jamie, and MeThis week’s podcast episode is a replay of a live stream I did a couple weeks ago on the topic of, “how to become an adult.”

Joining me in the stream were Simon Clark and Jamie Miles, two YouTuber friends of mine who live in the UK.

Simon is a current Ph. D. student in climate science and an Oxford University graduate. Jamie is also an Oxford grad, worked for Google for a while, and is now part of a technology startup.

So between us, we’ve got the perspectives of a grad student, a person with experience working for multiple companies (both large and small), and a professional goofball with a camera and microphone – not to mention that together we represent two different countries!

Is that enough to run a useful live stream on becoming an adult? We’ll let you decide after you get to the discussion on Bojack Horseman vs. Steven Universe. (the other 99% is useful, I swear.)

If you enjoy this, definitely check out Simon and Jamie’s YouTube channels in the links below as well. They both produce excellent videos with study tips and other college advice!

Really loved this episode! It helped me realize that I am not alone in trying my best to be ‘adult’ but still sometimes fail and start being a kid again.

For future episodes, maybe you could interview Emilie Wapnick. She is a career coach, a ‘multipotentialite’, and a blogger. She is one of those people who believe that ‘one true calling’ may not be for everyone. 🙂 Her website is http://www.puttylike.com 🙂

Hey, just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the episode. Too many times I find that I can’t watch livestreams due to time constraints, so popping it onto a podcast really helps with that.
