Here’s an episode from the “No Jargon” podcast that discusses the difficulty many students are having paying for their college education and how this impacts them and their families.

The guest on this episode is Sara Goldrick-Rab, a sociologist at Temple University, who offers insight and makes a few interesting policy proposals based on her research.
