For our inaugural episode, we welcome Oriana Leckert and Matt Ruby. With the dawning of “free” four year college in New York State, we discuss the value of a college education, some of the particulars of the plan and who it may or may not benefit, and an alternative to college called MissionU. We also welcome Charles Hinshaw, a Senior Video Producer here at BTR, with his thoughts on the recently released movie, Colossal, directed by Nacho Vigalondo and starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudekis, and Dan Stevens. Along the way, we’ll also hear the story of Morticia, a woman who moved to New York to find acceptance she couldn’t find back home and we’ll hear from Molly Knefel’s take on Betsy DeVos and public education weeks into her tenure s US Education Secretary. Finally, we’ll hear a preview of an episode of BTR Live Studio for next week — “More Romantic,” by the band CLOSENESS.
Music composed and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
