Great Podcast for Educators

I am a teacher from Singapore and I have been listening to Cult of Pedagogy for a few months and it is a really good podcast that gives concrete advice on teaching, classroom management and assessment. I will highly recommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade themselves. Also the audio quality is really good and it is a pleasure to listen!
