Love the POD Cast!

I must say this is one of the most enjoyable podcasts I have had the pleasure of listening to. The host Tim Bogatz, weaves his conversations and topics with a wit and charm that one could only expect from a creative mind not only at the forefront of America’s ART culture today, but also leading it to greater heights. Definitely an easy listen, and worth the time for anyone who dreams of being involved In The ARTS, whatever form you choose.

Why does the host sound so salty

I’ve listened to nearly every episode in hopes of gleaning ideas and skills for my classroom, but I have reached a stopping point. The host sounds so burned out. The down trodden tone is a buzz kill. I get it—teaching is hard, but lighten up a little.

Listened to one so far…

I have been an art teacher for only 3 years and just in the first episode related with everything that was said. I feel like the podcast knew what I needed to hear. Everything they brought up I say in class every year. Will keep listening and see where is takes me.
