#145: UArts Closing & The Higher Ed Crisis

Download MP3

We discuss the abrupt closing of Chrissie's alma mater, UArts, and whether it is indicative of a trend in higher education. Are "art" degrees (or most degrees) just useless anyway? Did Covid screw everything up for universities? Have schools invested too much in getting "fancy"? Plus, Chrissie discovers that Walmart has cheap prices, we have a few technical difficulties, and end on a hopeful note that maybe Temple will save the day in the end.
