Patrick's look at the jobs gap in Georgia is essential viewing for anyone currently in college.

Patrick Crosby delves into the college degree to job ratio in Georgia and how zombies help to resurrect a small-town economy.

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence (GPEE) in Education reports that high costs at technical and community colleges is hindering many students from attending.

The result is an inability for the state to meet workforce demands which subsequently leads to a shortage of talent to fill high demand, highly technical jobs.

The GPEE recommends the development of a needs-based scholarship that allows motivated and qualified students from all backgrounds an opportunity to pursue a college degree.

There’s no shortage of quality television programming these days, many of which are produced in Georgia. 

Patrick reveals some remarkable numbers that prove why the term “trickle-down effect” is factual when it comes to a mega-hit television show.
