From Fashion To (Vertical) Farming
What happens when a fashion model develops a passion for biomedicine and vertical farming? Elettra Wiedemann, founder of the Impatient Foodie blog and author of its eponymous cookbook, is here to tell us. Elettra takes us on her unique path that includes founding a pop-up restaurant, jumping in as the Executive Food Editor at Refinery29 and strategically boosting her triathlon performance. Plus, some Human Venn Diagram wisdom from a psychic!
All The Things
What do you suck at? Or, more importantly, what do you let yourself suck at? We dive into some seriously awesome topics like why it's important to suck at something and the relevance of a liberal arts education (yes, even for techies!). Plus, business models for interdisciplinary careers and the very important question of, "What's keeping you?" That's right: it's a C&C episode covering all the things!
I Really Like Your How
"I really like your how" may be our new favorite compliment. We'll break down what it means with Kara DeFrias, a UX expert who has leveraged her background in theater production and instructional design to work everywhere from the Oscars to the White House. Kara fills us in on what it means to speak geek, why always saying "yes" is a great mantra and how to get in the room where it happens.
Live: Me, Myself And Why
In this very special episode, we bring you our KPCC live show from Los Angeles!

Then we pass the mic to American Public Media's The Mash-Up Americans for a different take on identity... and mezcal!
If you had the chance to go back to college and do it all over again, would you? And what would you do differently?

Listen and learn how you can adapt a framework of integration and connection to your own life, even if you're long past your co-ed days.
