It's just Beachie ,

Great

Yes I would love if it was titled by topic. I’m really enjoying the podcast!

Disappointed with the Willingham interview

I agree the titles should be listed by topic not author. So far I only listened to the Willingham interview and was disappointed. I hope I misheard him as saying balance literacy seems to have valid points and that conclusions drawn from research often have little implications for the classroom? I hope I misunderstood and no other teacher listening heard that message.

I would love an interview with author Dr. Melissa Farrall about assessment issues related to literacy and language. I love her books and have heard her speak many times. Dr. Ken Pugh, Dr. Louisa Moats, and Dr. Guinevere Eden would also be great guests!

Thank you for creating a podcast on this important topic!

Love it! Only one little detail missing...

This is an amazing podcast and a great resource for any educator that seeks to grow and strengthen their knowledge about literacy and reading. Every time I listen I gain a better understanding of my role as a teacher and the importance of teaching with the science of reading at the forefront. The only small detail I wish was improved (perhaps a bit silly) is how the episodes are labeled/titled. I wish they were titled by topic so they’d be easier to search through. I have an interest to listen to all of them at some point but if I was seeking a specific episode as a resource to share with colleagues or to remember for future reference- that small detail makes it extremely difficult to access. Just a thought from a very interested teacher💕
