Superbly Social

Greg and his highly knowledgeable guests are making sociology fun again! The wide variety of topics they cover and the easy to understand way in which they deliver them had me hooked from my very first listen. They’re also personable and funny, which let’s be honest; isn’t always the easiest to find in the Sociology world. Thanks for putting out such a great show Greg - keep up the great work!

Eh...

I’m generally interested in the topics that are discussed, however the format leaves much to be desired. Most episodes sound very scripted and robotic. A natural flow and conversational style would go a long way.

Podcasts aren’t advertisements

I know you’re trying here, but I think you’re missing the mark. People listen to podcasts to learn something or for entertainment. It should be more like a radio program than an advertisement for the NASW. Try interviewing leaders in the field about their research, practice, their impression on current events, whatever. Have people talk about their experiences of marginalization from whatever group you’d like, what it’s like to be black/Hispanic/trans/gay/etc in certain parts of the country or world or whatever is interesting and educational. Have someone talk about the history of mental health or adoption or the prison system or literally any area of interest to social workers. If I want to learn about the annual conference or what programs are taking place during social work month I can find that information online, that’s not what a podcast should be for.
