Thomas Frank of College Info Geek joins the podcast to chat about getting the most out of college. Whether you’re just heading to college, you’re out of college or you’re knee deep in the haze of senior year spring quarter this episode helps clear the air on a lot of college questions.

Bare Necessities

Thomas Frank runs College Info Geek (the worst site in the world basically).

Thanks to Andy for organizing such an awesome time: FU Weekend

We can all agree that Chase Reeves knows what he’s doing.

Fun fact: College Info Geek was built on the Volatyl Framework

Hack College denied Tom from working for them. We find out how he responded.

Don’t drink pop (or soda or coke or energy drinks). Fer realz.

The Power of Habit has a lot more to do with our pop addictions than I ever imagined.

Happy Purim To All!


This morning I had the delight to find out that Purim is a thing that exists. I also have the delight of having a “translator” who can explain things for us. I couldn’t help but share…

I’m gonna break this down real quick for y’alls:

Purim is the ONE holiday in the Jewish calendar that doesn’t involve the following:

-encountering elderly relatives that make you wonder what you’ll smell like at 87

What it does involve is:

- binge drinking
- costumes
- tomfoolery
- baked goods (hamentaschen to be exact)

Essentially it’s “Jewdi Gras.”

Warm regards.

We talk dessert, why you should stay at home rather than come to Austin for SXSW, the Oscars, and the secret world of #fratlife. “#SUCKIT, JULIA!” – Galadriel/mid-60s Bob Dylan
