Our favorite words of wisdom from the Guests/Hosts:

“The Internet has changed the landscape of learning especially.”  -Nevin

“Having all this information at our fingertips, in the form of a phone in our pocket, it’s almost as if we don’t even retain information anymore like we used to.”  -Nevin

“There’s a lot of knowledge out there, but you can see a vast inequality to access to that knowledge.”  -Nevin
