In this episode Eric interviews Dave Strohmetz from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL. Dave generously shares his story of growing up in a working-class family, his ability to learn from others, and then becoming a first-generation college student. Relationships and family are at his core, manifested through his retelling of family camping trips, his love of sports, and something about the Philadelphia Eagles. Dave reveals details about textbook covers and puppies and chats about the importance of storytelling, skills, and being “pluckable.” If you play the Jane Halonen drinking game, this is an episode for you.
