All this month, I’ve heard about the campaign to spread the news of podcasts called TryPod. As I am a voracious listener of podcasts (you can see the complete list of my current subscriptions and other recommendations on my podcast page), I figured I ought to participate while I can. So I will post about one of my favorite podcasts every day for the last 9 days of March.
Education and the politics of public education are big issues for me so it won’t surprise you that I’m recommending the podcast Have You Heard? Journalist Jennifer Berkshire (formerly EduShyster) and education historian Jack Schneider discuss the hot button topics of market based education solutions and the real world effects they have on students and communities. Episodes are short and released infrequently but pack a powerful punch. While waiting for the next episode, make sure to read Berkshire’s blog, also called Have You Heard?
