Great show, horrible marketing

I’d listened to your show with James Nestor. Very informative and an excellent podcast! The interviewer was well spoken and directed the conversation flow wonderfully. I was, however, EXTREMELY unimpressed by the three McDonalds commercials which were placed randomly throughout that particular show; what a terrible turn off. Please have your marketing department reconsider their target audience. Personally I do my best to shop organically and locally; we vote with our dollars and I’d love to see you include more consideration for your listeners by choosing your sponsors more carefully. Thanks for your excellent interviews! Get your advertising under control you’ve got a completely successful show ( from an audience’s perspective).

Episode505 Assignment

WHAT: I am an educator and what I got from this episode were some new strategies (and a book I need to read) that may help me at my own classroom level, but also at a team and school level to bring some awareness to the experiences some of our more challenging students may be having from their perspective. SO WHAT: So now, in addition to wanting to read Sarah’s book, I can imagine taking time to create spaces within the day to be sure students feel seen and heard and represented through art displays, structured sharing time, and/or student selected activities that can be shared within the classroom/team. NOW WHAT: I would love to take the information I will learn in Sarah’s book and present some ideas to my administrators and team mates to try as we embark on a new school year starting in July!

Branding decoded! ,

Great pod!

I always get inspired and learn something new. I like the repeat guests. Thanks Eric!!!
