    The duo are joined by University of Bristol's Dr. David Sands to discuss the changing landscape of leadership and the importance of climate change education for young people. David also shares his research into the NPQ programme and how they compare with the Hong Kong Principal Programme. The results are interesting to say the least!

A Great Show!

Great podcast that keeps me sane!

Thank you! Just thank you, for your honesty and openness. As a school leader, it’s fabulous to hear my own thoughts and feelings being discussed by others in the same position but with a much needed humorous twist. Please keep them coming!

The Brick In The Wall

A great podcast that takes a hilarious look at all things educational. There is always something to take away from the episodes and the banter between the Bawler and Pud is funny to listen to. Highly recommend!
