550 miles, boston college, gordon wayne, walk to end homelessness
Boston College Sophomore Gordon Wayne spent 14 months homeless before a combination of "luck and hard work" allowed him to transfer to Boston College. Rather than flying, like the school offered for him to do, he decided to walk all 550 miles and raise money for the homeless along the way. Olivia and Gordon chat about the experience and where he plans to go from here.

boston college, liturgical choir, liturgy arts group
Oh this one's something!! Meyer Chambers is a campus minister and the liturgical music minister at Boston College, where our host Olivia is a member of his liturgical choir. Meyer is one of those Catholic guys–– he knows seemingly everyone in the Archdiocese, has worked and volunteered and given his heart to so many organizations, and he radiates the light of Christ through his open office door, big smile, and iconic Meyer laugh. He's one of my favorite human beings, and I hope you can see why.
