As young professionals themselves, Libby and Riley are constantly striving to connect and uplift young people in the Toledo community. "On the Come Up" features young entrepreneurs and professionals in the area from all different industries and walks of life who are making an impact on the community. Guests discuss their background, education and training, and advice for other young professionals. We also take a look at varying pop culture trends among Gen Z-ers like ourselves and discuss or debunk them.
