From doctors, lawyers and veterinarians to career counselors, drug counselors, Lipizzaner stallion trainers and special effects wizards, Real Life 101 takes you "on the job" so viewers can see for themselves why these professionals love what they do. They can learn about jobs they might not know even existed! Hosts Jillian, Shawn and Gracey explore new professions in the exciting world of work every week.
