A different look at education
Love listening to this podcast! Ryan is a great host and presents education in a different light. Love the variety of his guests.
Ryan has great energy and tons of interesting guests and topics. His insights and questions are always on point. Super thought provoking!
ClassCast Podcast is great because it challenges our fundamental beliefs about schools. The host doesn't hype trendy pedagogies or popular hashtags or new initiatives. I love the focus on common sense, research, historical performance, and personal experience.
