Two years ago, my fellow gap year colleague Margo Brookfield approached me about starting a podcast. It took me about a second of thought before I said, “Yes! Let’s do it!!!” And now, three seasons and a national award later, we are about to enter season four of Gap Year Radio.

Your hosts, Julia & Margo

The mission of Gap Year Radio is to bring the information and inspiration needed to plan a life-changing gap year adventure. In other words, we want to give potential gappers another place to hear voices of gap year alumni and program providers so they can start to understand how to plan their own adventure.

Find us on instagram @gapyearradio

Gap Year Radio is available for download on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and our website. In our archives you can hear from the director of USA Gap Year Fairs, a gap year student who spent her year in Bali, a tutor with Art History Abroad, and many more!
