A Sugar Rush for your intellectual side, the ladies from Brain Candy Podcast, Susie Meister and Sarah Rice muse about their experiences with reality television, travel abroad, and everything in-between. Their guests will be Dawn Keezer, Director of the Pittsburgh Film Office, and Bill Fuller, Corporate Chef from Big Burrito Restaurant Group.

Though perhaps best known for her reality TV show stardom, Pitt alum Susie Meister is well-versed in the global and social issues surrounding displacement. She has felt this first hand while participating on the MTV television show Road Rules, where she spent months outside of her normal life and confined to adventures with strangers a Winnebago. She completed her PhD in Religious Studies at Pitt in 2014, and now works as a diversity trainer and activist against prejudice. She brings that expertise to her podcast with fellow reality star Sarah Rice from MTV’s The Real World: Brooklyn, as they explore themes ranging from global travel to social media and everything in between.

Pitt students who attend will have the chance to win a $1,000 study abroad scholarship! Pizza will be served. This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, contact
