Halloween is coming up, and there’s signs of it everywhere. Carved pumpkins with spooky faces sit on peoples’ doorsteps, cobwebs hang from every corner, there’s seasonal candy for sale, and you’ll find aisles of cheap costumes wherever you look. It’s a fun time of year with a lot of traditions. But where do these traditions come from? Why do we carve Jack-o’-lanterns out of pumpkins? What even is candy corn? Here to answer these questions and more is Student Producer Kristen Evans.

34 MINS

Well-meaning family and friends will often ask “What are you studying?” which is pretty much a kinder way of saying What do you want to be when you grow up.” As parents, we need to be okay with some question marks in our children’s lives, but we also want them to feel confident about moving forward. Is there a right way to prepare our kids for their future careers? Here to discuss the research on this topic, is Jeanette Bennett. Jeanette is the founder and editor of Utah Valley Magazine, BusinessQ, Posper Magazine, and others, and is a regular presenter at The Lisa Valentine Clark show.
