And now we've come to the end of the road... well, not really, because in case you haven't noticed by now, Dominic and I like to talk, so we didn't quite fit everything about high school into this podcast.  That's okay though.  Part 2 to come next time.  In this episode, the penultimate podcast in our School Series, we're discussing all the highs and lows of being in High School, Secondary School to our British listeners.  Dominic demands to know what Homecoming actually is, and what exactly are the purpose of cheerleaders?  Erica's fascinated that school in Britain stops (or at least did) at age 16, with students the ages of 17 and 18 having the choice to carry on with "college", which isn't the same thing as college in the states (confused yet?).  Also, what the heck is a Prefect?  (Seriously, we Americans thought that was only something that existed in Harry Potter.)  If you're still reading, it's time to stop.  Listen to this episode and then regale us with stories about your high school days on Facebook or Instagram or wherever you so choose.
