    Outline: The aim of the special issue was to bring together current scholarly research on the sociology of education to critically explore the question: what is the role of education in (re)producing social inequalities and what potential does it have to challenge them? We invited authors to reflect on their research and to identify points of encounter, in different contexts, based on a diversity of sociological theories and methodologies.

Best sociology podcast

The interviews, student specials, and literature reviews on selected topics is a great way to stay on top of research, or even dive into a new area of study

Too many advertisements

I am disappointed in the amount of advertisements before getting into the content of the show. I had to unsubscribe due to the ads.

Accessible Academics

This show turns the names at the top of my school texts into humans. It’s been a fantastic way to learn more about the people working in the field as I begin to consider graduate studies. Hearing the concepts from class discussed expertly in an conversational format makes them feel more accessible. And I love hearing what inspires them!
