In this penultimate episode of the Class of 1988 series, I speak with my other JA, Lisa Mandl. Find out about the cultural and meteorological differences between Williamstown and Vancouver, BC, how she met her husband (though we are getting only her side of the story) and Lisa clears up one of the little mysteries of my Freshman year. Also, both she and Jody Abzug mentioned the infamous Brews and Screws party at Tyler (which had to change it’s name due to administration policy) Does this party still occur?

And yes, Lisa, your ability to ask penetrating questions is still functioning admirably, as I and my wife have been chewing over your observation (not included in the podcast) that my JA’s were from Kansas City and Vancouver, and I married a woman from Kansas City and honeymooned in Vancouver. Thanks loads. ;)
