Followers of my blog, twitter, or just life in general, will know that I haven’t shut up for the last couple months about starting my own education podcast. This is a result of thoroughly enjoying the discussions I have with teachers, administrators, students, and parents, and thinking time and time again that other people would find these discussion interesting too. If you’ve read my last couple blog posts about what I’m learning from listening to other education podcasts (Part 1 and Part 2) will know that I have been publicly musing on what others are doing right and wrong, and what I want to do with my show.
So, this post shall serve as the official announcement of the Planning Period Podcast launching NEXT WEEK! On May 5th, you will be able to download and listen to the first episode, my interview with Jay Cvetko.
For now, I will be releasing an episode every two weeks, so Episode 2 will be available May 19th, in which I interview the wonderfully talented and awe-inspiring Kristen Iannuzzi. Following episodes will include guests such as a former student of mine, an amazing technology-centric educator, my dad (a soon-to-be-retiring principal), and many more.
The goal of this podcast is just to record great conversations. I won’t be focusing on specific topics or trying to control the conversation so it’s all about one thing. I simply love to talk about education, pedagogy, and big issues. So, if you want to hear me talk to someone way more qualified than me about things I’m not nearly talented enough to fix, then the Planning Period Podcast is for you!
As a little tease, here is the first 45 seconds or so of the first episode, in which I introduce myself and the podcast. Also, a good listen to the intro music, Vicious by Kevin MacLeod.
