About This Show
Campus is that place and time in our lives where everything changes. Welcome to the CBC’s first original podcast series. Every episode is driven by a first-person narrative as host, Albert Leung guides you through one character’s life-defining experience. The stories are uniquely personal, honest and intimate. And although our characters are almost always students, their experiences are universal. Everyone can relate to the struggles of fitting in, feeling lost, self-discovery and tackling adversity.
