I work in Ed tech marketing and comms and this is a must listen

Absolutely great podcast with a great host and a wide variety of entertaining topics, all focused on higher ed.

There are very fees shows that are both entertaining and genuinely this useful in your career, but The Higher Ed Geek will keep you entertained and informed, whether you listen for fun or to keep up with topics in the higher Ed space.
