Great podcast for reflective teaching

A fantastic evidence-based podcast that wrestles with current issues and brings new research to light.

@mrmasonhpe ,

Thank You!

Just wanted to thank you for your contribution to the field. As an active health and PE teacher, I have always struggled to keep up with the new research within our discipline. This podcast has changed that. I am so incredibly grateful for it and am actively unpacking each episode to use it in my classroom. Thank you 10x over!!
