  1. Yeah....I'm referencing this podcast for new students in my courses. I love podcasts that we can listen to on the go! Thanks Brittany and Beth!

    1. We agree, Darci! With all the ways to share information and discuss topics, there is something so nice about a podcast that can "follow" us around as we go :)
