Episode 321 – What I Didn't Learn From University

(1:12) Welcome back to the Pandemic. We chat about getting our vaccines and the side effects, added restrictions. We talk SeanGeek’s Livestream with the folks over at Creative Conundrums which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfgx9ah0dCY Creative Conundrums: https://creativeconundrums.podbean.com/ (11:24) Was today’s episode inspired by the Scottish Podcast Rage Rage, or was it through some strange osmosis. Give the lads a listen and tell us if our shows are mirrors of each other. https://redcircle.com/shows/rage-rage (17:04) And today’s topic: Book Learning versus Hands-On Learning. We chat about manuals in the workplace, Ikea assembly instructions, learning music theory and what makes a good teacher. (41:19) Did you know that University is free in some countries? Did you know some countries offer crippling debt? And others offer even more crippling debt. Did you know that in Canada, a university can increase their rates way above the cost of living? SeanGeek tells his own university story and why his experience soured him. What is the ROI (Return on Investment) on the money universities collect. (51:20) The reality of being trained by professionals versus getting a university degree. Why are trades looked down upon? What is better, university or college? And which offers a better family life? And do “booksmarts” know how to change a lightbulb? (1:01:36) Are universities all about the money or about teaching? What standards does university and the environment teach its students about family? Why is working beyond your endurance the norm? And what happens in a union environment? (1:09:59) We have a question for Rage Rage. (1:12:06) Are virtual teachers a cash grab? Are you getting your money’s worth when you are watching a recorded session? Do universities invest in their students? #university #college #teacher #roi #booksmart @rageragepod @senppai90 @Docdraconis Website: www.seanmcginity.ca Meet The Geeks: http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/ @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @toddgeek on Twitter @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook @the_real_meet_the_geeks on Instagram @podioanthq @mbpodfest @beaverdoes

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
