Good chat so far
Really interesting - background music on the first interview with David Read is really distracting!
The sort of questions asked are exactly the ones I, as an academic, am intrigued to know the answers to...and who better than from other academics at the top of their game.
Superb educational podcast!
Really interesting content. Would recommend for anyone who teaches within higher education
