A wonderful show
I am an educator and have worked in a variety of centres and states. I know that you are taking a break and I really enjoyed the podcast on the social media. I hope when you return that part two will be out.
This is an outstanding podcast which I had also recommended it to my centre for all to read.

Highly recommend listening to this podcast
It is very interesting, informative, thought-provoking and entertaining. As an EC teaching student and parent of a 3 year old who feels strongly about social justice, I have learnt so much relevant information and been very inspired. Thank you a million times over for sharing your time and expertise with the world and for all the advocacy work you do. I’m quite devastated that you’ll be taking a long/indefinite break but I completely understand and luckily you do have a large back catalogue!
