Social Work Resources Review ,

Jonathan is great at bringing Social Workers a range of information relevant to our work. He ensures the topic stays focused and that listeners get relevent information, strategies and resources. I'm recommending to all my Social Work readers!

An incredible learning resource!

I started listening to this podcast the summer before I did my MSW. I continue to listen to it years after graduating because the content is relevant, challenging, and gives enough context to be useful without abusing your attention. Thank you to Jonathan for producing such an incredible learning resource!
