The biggest take-away from this episode is that Kevin does not equate the earning of a Bachelor's Degree with successful task completion. We know K-Ro, you used to interview people with college degrees for hockey rink employment and they lacked common sense but this is called anecdotal evidence (aka not scientific). Maybe if you were a fucking scientist, you would know the difference!
Did I mention that this was Kevin's topic and boy did he come through with some fantastic facts about the value of a college degree? I don't think anyone denies (at least from our show) that a degree doesn't hurt your options in life. But is the juice with the squeeze? As Kevin mentioned, the cost of education is so high and getting strapped with life-long student debt is causing people to reevaluate their goals. We discussed ways to mitigate some of these huge expenses; such as spending a few years at community college for a fraction of the cost of a major university or moving into John's basement and sharing a bowl of cereal.
If given the chance for a redo, John would go to school at The Second City and become a wonderful improvererer thus proving he has no idea what a university is. Kevin would go to University of Oregon or NYU and smoke cloves and talk about his feels. I would go to Steve's College of Cardiology and Barbery for obvious reasons.
It should be noted that I did become a cardiologist since we last recorded and am looking for volunteers that are willing to let me crack open their chests and poke around inside. Nurses Kevin and John will be there too, so you know it will be safe and we probably won't rifle through your wallet or phone while you're passed out on ayahuasca.
