Chris Cluff Bonus Edition Part 2 – Episode 25

Hello, and welcome to Episode 24 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! If you’re listening to this episode on release day, and you live in the US, hope you aren’t out shopping in the craziness that is Black Friday. Just use Amazon.

Second, this is a special bonus episode of the Planning Period Podcast. Last week’s episode was with me talking to Chris Cluff, an educator at an alternative site for suspended and expelled students, as well as change agent, presenter, and podcaster. When Chris and I talked, my normal hour-long interview turned into almost two hours of us chatting, and I couldn’t stand to let any of his brilliance hit the cutting room floor.

Last week’s episode, Episode 24 if you want to go back, was actually the second half of that hour where I got to my typical questions for the show. This week is Chris and I talking about his podcast, podcasting in general, and a little more detail about his background and context. It’s a lot of fun, and we go all over the place.

So, sit back and enjoy this special bonus episode of The Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Chris Cluff, Part 2!


Again Cluff, thank you for talking to me, and for longer than we planned. It was a ton of fun, and I hope you all listening took as much away from it as I did.

If you want to connect with Chris (and honestly, you should) you can find him on twitter @chrisjcluff, and find his podcast, Chasing Squirrels at I also have a link to the EdCan episode we talked about at the beginning of this episode in the show notes.

If you have comments or questions about the show, you can always connect with me on twitter, @BradShreffler. I love to hear from you. That’s also a great place to connect if you’d like to be a guest on the show.

Until next week, don’t forget to ask the person on the bench why they’re crying.
