We talked about this past holiday weekend and gift giving to friends.  When we finally got around to the news, we covered:

  • A book edited by Professor Mario Escobar at LA Mission College made the 2020 Top Ten list at Latin Stories.
  • The National College Attainment Network updated their FAFSA Tracker.
  • Tips to improve your online meetings
  • An article at MarketWatch that showed how parents with high school sophomores can adjust their income and assets in time before completing FAFSAs for college in the fall of 2023.

Our "I Dare You To..." selections were a reminder to watch FARGO on FX (from Dana) and read Subscribed: Why the Subscription Model Will Be Your Company's Future - And What To Do About It by Then Tzuo.

Dana and Dennis were joined today by Ken Lira, Assistant Dean of Financial Aid and Student Support Services at Irvine Valley College (IVC).  We talked about how Ken started in financial aid, his schooling (go APU!), his work on his doctorate, and other financial aid topics.  We talked on financial aid research and mentioned a couple of reports from TICAS (Green Lights & Red Tape and After the FAFSA) and one from UC Davis - Wheelhouse (Money Left on the Table).

Ken's "I Dare You To" selection was to recommend everyone get out and take a drive (while still obeying all of the health warnings there are out there).  Travel, but travel safely.

Dana and Dennis were joined by former CCCSFAAA President (and current Director of Financial Aid & Enrollment Management at Sierra College) Dr. Linda Williams.  We covered how Linda became involved in financial aid after serving in the Air Force, how she's served in multiple roles within CCCSFAAA, and her continuing work in financial aid and in support of her fellow financial aid peeps across the state.  And, we talked about her beekeeping hobby (but is it really just a hobby?) and how it gives back to her garden and the orchards in her neck of the woods.

Linda provided an "I Dare You To" selection of Brene Brown, author/ professor/ researcher/ speaker and more.  Ms. Brown has written numerous books, given TED Talks, and has her own podcast.  Check her out!

Lastly, Dennis's "I Dare You To Read" selection was the tiny Taschen book on the Case Study Houses.  Exciting LA mid-century modern architecture.

Lastly lastly - we apologize for technical issues at the close of the show.  Dana was having an issue with one of her cables that kept her voice quieter than we've ever heard Dana.
