Jackson Huff Podcaster

I am in admissions and advising by profession where I speak with students every day about their future and goals. I have spent a decade learning peoples life stories and what makes them tick. So, a few years ago I decided to take that passion for people and make a podcast. Through this I have been able to speak with a lot of amazing people. People like Bob Eubanks (The Newlywed Game), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Maddie Musselman (2x Olympic Gold Medalist), Francois Clemmons (Mister Rogers' Neighborhood), and countless others.

This week I speak with Afarin Bellisario about the the country of Iran and how it is much different than what many Westerns think.

Today, Afarin consults, teaches, and mentors young ventures. But writing has been a passion. …
