Of his next broadcast, host Paul Rivas of “Real Gauchos” writes, “Join me for a conversation with UCSB Soccer alumna Jamie Considine on growing up in Coronado, traveling the country as a club soccer player, being a four-year starter at goalkeeper for UCSB, playing lots of soccer and doing lots of partying but not really applying herself in school, learning the hard way that she wanted to be a nurse, doing college all over again to pursue that goal, finding out that she could be good at science if she was willing to work at it, being motivated by more than just breakfast burritos, what it’s like to be a nurse on the cancer floor, why she’s quitting cancer nursing for emergency room nursing, her domestic partnership with a woman, having an uncle who’s buddies with Newt Gingrich, no longer arguing with people who don’t support equality but seeing people come around on their own with time, being gay in Santa Barbara, the relationship between college athletics and nursing, and how to stay out of the emergency room.”

“Real Gauchos” airs Thursdays from 8-9am during UCSB’s winter quarter. All episodes are available on realgauchos.com and iTunes.
