Love it!

I like that Jen offers the insight of someone that has experience. I am a teacher also and the topics discussed are relevant and informative. The information Diego and Lorenzo add is also beneficial. Lots of good stuff!

Host needs improvement

It’s season 3 and the hostess still spends too much time talking about herself and doesn’t seem to be gaining confidence in her interviews. It’s frustrating to hear her interrupt guests, not be prepared for her guests by reading their materials or being familiar with their work, and continue to provide vague superficial commentary about complex issues. She has had great guests but these podcasts are not worth their time or mine in listening. Missed opportunity.

Perfect Timing

I love that this podcast focuses on misconceptions with education. Understanding the small details about how the education industry works is perfect for my point life, with two daughters headed to school in the next few years.

Thank you and keep up the great work!
