“When I have kids, it is literally going to be mandatory for them to study abroad.” — Luke Bambrick
“A once in a lifetime opportunity within a once in a lifetime opportunity” is how I’d describe the start of Luke Bambrick’s summer trip to London. Why? Because he was actually able to attend the Prince Harry and Meghan Markel’s wedding festivities.
Luke approaches the interview with optimism, it’s one of those shows that makes you just want to get up and go…
Luke teaches us about life in London, tracking down family in Europe (something that other Study Abroadcast guests have done as well), and exploring exploring other countries on the weekends.

It was literally me. I saw it, and freaked out, and said ‘there’s no way I’m passing this up'” — Maria Gutowski
Before we started the interview I asked Maria what her major was. Then when we started the interview she told me what study abroad program she chose…you can hear my reaction and then Maria is like: “yeah, I know!”
She truly found the perfect study abroad program, and I’m hoping that she can be an inspiration for you to do the same. In my opinion the coolest part of the interview is how she didn’t really even have to pay for it, either.
Yes folks, yet another product of the system that just worked; another satisfied customer so to speak.
It’s interesting to hear how she was able to do so much in such a short amount of time and what it was like to do a program that was so niched.
We’ve got a new record holder on The Study Abroadcast!Lila Dedvukaj, pending an illness or national catastrophe, will have studied abroad a grand total of five times before wrapping up graduate school. The previous record was a respectable four.
These aren’t summer trips, either. The @oaklundu grad student spent 300 days in India during her first trip, so I wouldn’t necessarily use the word ‘timid’ to describe her. 300 days anywhere is impressive, but 300 days in India? Forget about it.
After India came Israel, where she studied abroad thee times, and the next frontier is China, where she plans to do an exchange next summer.
(let me take a breath)
In this interview we learn about common misconceptions about India, get a crash course on archaeology, and find out why Israel is the perfect place to go if you want to find some artifacts.
