New COVID series on ‘Coffee & Cocktails’

Zoom

Apologies for the silence but C&C is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a COVID series starting this June. Rather than wait for the studio to open, we’ll be taking advantage of Zoom and recording live (bloopers and all!)

If you’d like to get in on the action and have ideas for future episodes, please feel free to contact us! Otherwise, anticipate several new episodes in the next several weeks/ months including mental health issues in higher education, educating the Roma in Florence, Italy, and the confusing world of Cannabis law in America.
