Could be Powerful
This podcast is so powerful and so necessary in regards to the content it brings for people considering the social work profession or who are in the social work profession, but the production could be much better in order to maintain a stronger audience and listenership.
Love the content
Good content and good speakers but the host uses “um” a lot and I find that distracting and wonder if he’s unprepared in his remarks. Working on this will make it a much better podcast.
I am a social worker at a K12 program here in Washington. I was introduced to this podcast from my instructor at Eastern Washington University. I am currently taking the Leadership course and I just listened in on the Negotiating Your Salary. Just an amazing listen. I wanted to subscribe to this to listen to more podcasts.
