Advising Podcast

Oftentimes in academic advising, a student comes in who is not doing well in a major. Sometimes this is due to parental expectations. A student will choose a major not because they love it, but because their parents want them to for different reasons. Job and financial security are two main reasons. I found a podcast, “What on earth are you going to do with a major in (---)??!!” that could be used to help students have that discussion with their parents about changing their major to something that is more suited for them. This podcast could be posted on an advising website which would allow any student to see and listen and in hopes, use to model a conversation all their own.
