Ten-day isolation for students who test positive for Covid? No eating or drinking anywhere indoors? No in-person class or Mass? These are but a few of the ridiculous Covid restrictions that have been in place at Georgetown University, where Jacob Adams is currently a junior. On this episode, Jacob relates the full extent of the ridiculousness, and attempts with Jack to figure out why college students have on the whole been so compliant with Covid restrictions.

    Not that I was planning on going back the college, but if I were, this interview would have killed that urge.

    Simultaneously horrifying and interesting to listen to. Jack, well done as an interview. You briefly touched on the “box checking” credentialism. As an older person (age 65), further discussion of how the Gen Z and younger students of today look at the purpose of their education could be the topic of some additional interviews.
