Life of the Party podcast: An intern's work is never done

Journey back to the start of your career — fetching coffee, ushering mail around, carrying an oversized fish tank through a busy New York City street.

Oh, that last one didn't happen to you? It happened to one of the hosts of the Life of the Party podcast during a magazine internship. This week, we talk to our producer McKenna Oxenden, whose internship with the Times is coming to an end. As she prepares for a big, new job in a big, new city, we reflect on what it's like to be an intern — the wins, the losses, the late night snacks. And we share tips and tricks for taking your entry level job to the big time.

Plus: We have an update on those bees living at Notre Dame cathedral, a few words on Lizzo's new album and some curious developments in the college admissions scandal.
