026 - Grown-up Club (Taylor Baldry, Tim Lovett & Victoria Nohl)

Get to know all three Captains of Grown-Up Club: Taylor Baldry, Tim Lovett, and Victoria Nohl. Since 2013, Grown-up Club has hosted a series of ridiculous, participatory events for wayward adults. Perhaps the most ridiculous--and interesting--is the Singles Exchange, where participants gave terrible powerpoint presentations about their single friends as a means of playing matchmaker.

We talk about all their past events & plans for new events in the upcoming year, and how the individual team members’ strengths combine to make Grown-up Club so dynamic and unique.
