The YaJagoff! Podcast - All about Pittsburgh

All about the cool stuff going on in Pittsburgh! There are a lot of podcasts, or PAWDcasts as you might say in Pittsburghese, but none this focused on what’s happening in Pittsburgh.

OK, so we’re a little late on a back to school tips but, if you’re looking for how to be frugal throughout the school year, how to search for colleges and sort through the financial aid pile of acronyms, this is for you! Oh, and if you don’t care about back to school tips, you’ll appreciate the PLLs (Professional Lunch Ladies) who steam-rolled their way into the studio. Finally, we have an anonymous school teacher from Seattle who tells us stories about Parent Jagoffs!

01:00 We are back in the studio for the first time in weeks. A record crowd was expected at the Pitt vs Penn State Football game, 70,000, and pretty sure we had that many people in the studio for this episode!

03:30 PLLs, somehow, two Professional Lunch Ladies barged into the studio. Quite honestly, they’re nuts but…..

07:10 First up, Dr. Nancy Berk, podcaster, author, humorist, Parade Magazine columnist, stand-up comedian and mom. She wrote a book, College Bound and Gagged, on how to NOT go insane over choosing, touring and paying for colleges!

17:40 Our anonymous teacher, a real teacher, comes on to tell us about parents being Jagoffs.

25:00 What about battling the fashion issue with sending kids back to school. And, there’s a new secret to the FASFA rules that could make a parent’s life so much less stressful around tax time when filling out those damned forms. Femme, from the blog is with us. Craig’s all ears knowing that he has 3 boys that will have to go through this process!

37:15 The PLLs, Professional Lunch Ladies are back. They have a long tradition of lunch lady work in their past. They want us to eat healthy… but, of course, we’re eating donuts and cupcakes and drinking chocolate milk!

45:15 Don’t forget about the John Knight running for POTUS! He’s having a contest to see who wants to be his VP running mate under the #Jagoffs Party. You can win some cool prizes. Get details.
