With an epic year winding down and colleges transitioning to a much-needed holiday break, hosts Jon Fansmith, Mushtaq Gunja, and Sarah Spreitzer discuss the last minute flurry of activity in Washington, DC, as the transition to a President Biden administration begins. Later, Mushtaq and Sarah talk with cognitive scientist and Barnard College President Sian Beilock about how she is using her own research as a psychologist to talk about the need for new ways to improve mental health and well-being on campus.
