Informative, thought-provoking, & fun

This podcast appeals to a diverse group of people: educators, parents, and students. The hosts are upbeat, knowledgeable, and help shed light on a variety of aspects of being gifted. As an educator, I personally love the “student voices” section where we get to hear students’ own thoughts surrounding various topics. Can’t wait for more episodes!
