Good Most of the Time

Really good show, give an interesting view of education, however it has a very heavy liberal arts bias.

Great Discussion of Issues in Education

Current issues in Education, discussed in a no-nonsense, scholarly-aware (the podcast itself is not really scholarly per se) manner. Unlike many discussion podcasts, this one wastes no time letting partially-informed people jabber. The host interviews foremost experts in Education on serious, relevant topics. I would not recommend this to anyone who is not directly and intensely interested in education. But for anyone who is, this is required listening.

Documentaries with Substance

I look forward to new podcasts from American Radioworks. The stories are always interesting and current. Not only does American Radioworks bring great stories, they truly seem to care about the people in their documentaries, I love hearing following clips and what has happened in these people's lives later one, good or bad. One can really relate with the characters found in the reportings and get a good feeling for what it is really like to be in their shoes. I think ARW reports on what is important. I love how the journalists don't just take the word of the person they are interviewing, but actually take the time to check things out. Just like in the documentary on the forclosures in gated commuties withing Vegas where a lady thought one of the houses had turned into a flop house or a drug house when really it was a lady living there and renting out her rooms to night workers and then the reporter when back to the person and opened their eyes and changed their perspective on what was really going on in that house. I think too many times we make assuptions and this is a great lesson that more people need to find out what is really going on rather than assume. One of my favorite podcasts by far.
