On this episode of To a Certain Degree, Bess Auer discusses how she went from being a teacher to a full-time blogger to a book author. That's not completely accurate of course, she's still a teacher and a blogger. It's all storytelling, and Bess is great at spinning good stories and drawing people in. We also go into detail on April the Giraffe, growing up in central Florida, and building communities. This episode was recorded on March 13, 2017, on WPRK FM.

On this week’s episode of To a Certain Degree, Stefanie Esquijarosa joins Nick to talk about how she ended up at the job of her dreams. As with many of these types of jobs, it wasn’t the path she’d thought she’d take at all. Along with her story about the Florida Film Academy, you’ll also hear some truly fiery Bad Business Ideas™, what can loosely be described as audio engineering, and very few recommendations on cashing in your college fund to make a movie.
J.B. Adams is more than a collection of letters that makes up a name on a screen or sheet of paper. He’s also a man. A man with a very good sense of humor, an incredible listener, and a very talented storyteller. Luckily, he joined Nick at the WPRK studios on October 10, 2016 for To a Certain Degree. Among other things we discuss besides Star Wars, Victor Hugo, and space exploration? Mood pants.

This week’s guest, Hap Aziz, is an educator and technologist, and we cover topics from drones to privacy to driverless cars. Oh, and rescuing overheated pets in cars.
