Be My Quarantine? EP 06 Brief Look into the Future

EP 06 Brief Look into the Future

Co-Hosts: Catherine Yang & Jacqueline Chen

Guest: John Rao

Audio Editor: Caleb Amanfu

This week we have our good friend John sitting in on our radio guest, but seems like every time we have a new guest, Caleb seems to disappear on us...

John is also a third-year architecture undergrad, but he's hella old. Probably 25 or something. He says he's only 22, but we think otherwise. Right now, he's chilling in the suburbs of Connecticut. If he's not working on studio, apparently he's doing yard work in his free time.

Tune in to find out:
  • Our different or perhaps similar career aspirations
  • Why we like architecture as a major
  • What's up with the near future

Every day I buy a can of pineapple with an expiration date of May 1, because May loves pineapple and May 1st is my birthday. I tell myself that if May hasn’t come back by the time I’ve bought 30 cans, then our love will expire too.
