MAWP alum Jesse Butts has started a podcast, The Work Seminar, devoted to liberal arts advanced degree holders considering work outside their fields of study.
Jesse writes: “In each episode, I interview MAs, MFAs, PhDs, and the like who’ve done exactly that. Some guests have migrated to adjacent fields, and others have landed in (seemingly) unrelated occupations. We explore their journeys from grad school to their new lines of work; reflect on work’s role in their lives, passion vs. practicality, and their philosophy of work; and share advice for listeners uncertain of what’s next.”
