S3 Ep8 - Live Questions and Answers

Another season is coming to an end. Niklas and Clay decided to participate in a Digital Study Hall and do a live Question and Answer Period with anyone who joined the Study Group.

Since we were not sure how many people might attend, we also solicited questions from our Writing Advisors, and from students via social media. In this season finale, we offer our take on questions from a variety of people. This episode will be more disjointed than previous episodes, but we have a lot of fun making it.

Apologies for the audio quality. We had a recording issue and tried to edit the podcast as best as possible.
