Welcome to the After Hours Radio, hosted at the University of Oregon. We want to ask you, what do you like to do off the clock? For Em and Jess, their answer meant talking with dope people to learn about their passions, talents, and advice about the Advertising industry. What better way to amplify these voices than to share them in one place for all to hear? Thus, the birth of the After Hours Podcast. Tune in weekly for our conversations with fellow students, alumni, or industry professionals who are sure to leave you feeling more prepared, more confident, and definitely more inspired after each episode. So tap in, grab your headphones, and enjoy! We're excited to have you with us.
