Welcome back to the slightly delayed May edition of the A-01 Podcast! The Dean of Admissions has un-expelled Matt so he has returned! As a tradeoff, our newest exchange student, Cole, became an actual exchange student in real life and is studying abroad in Ireland and won’t be back until the 22nd of this month. Upon his return, The A-01 Podcast will be a 4-man cell, because that sounds way cooler than just calling ourselves a team!
