Meet the Candidates - Alec's Final Episode

Welcome to the last, extra-length episode of the E&I for You & I Podcast hosted by Alec. In a bittersweet finale, Alec reminisces and reflects on this experience as a whole while introducing three potential candidates, one of which will take over Alec's position as host for the foreseeable future! Thank you to everyone who has supported the podcast throughout the last year and a half and I hope that you will support the next host just as much if not more than how you supported me.

I also hope to see you at the screening of my first ever feature film, Tony Wicket: An American Story, on May 2nd, 7:00PM at the Traina Center for the Arts in Razzo Hall at Clark University. It's free!
