    Season 3 Trailer: Why We Would Quit Teaching

    In Season 3, Laurie and Matt let us know that "the winter of our discontent is here." Where Season 2 was an exploration of all that was great with teaching, Season 3 will be the opposite. "Inspired" by the challenging Fall 2021 Semester, their toughest EVER, Laurie & Matt are going to take us on a journey of all that is rotten with the state of teaching, so be warned...it's going to get ugly. Listening while driving may not be advisable. Join them each Monday in January and February of 2022 as they let it rip as only a married couple with 40 plus years of teaching experience between them can.

AMAZING

this podcast is so great i loved the source journal & now the interviews to get different pov it’s such a good listen

Thomas Linder ,

Chemistry Abounds

Very impressive! Some personal comments.

1-I love your mic. It’s frequency range picks up the timbre changes in your voice and really gives the listener a feeling of being in the room with you.

2-your chemistry comes through in a positive manner and leads to the listener (at least this listener) feeling engaged. The positive frequency bands of your relationship shine through the airwaves.

3-your mixture of topic discussion and personal experiences, for example, a side bar about a coffee mug, are seemless and connected. Very well done.

3a-#66 In this episode you are a great listener, Laurie. Matt seems to lead the discussion and you both keep the talking over each other non-existent! I LOVE IT.

All of these elements made the listening experience not only educational, but enjoyable. Thank You!

You’ll want Laurie and Matt to be your BFFs!

“Teacher Saves World” feels like eavesdropping on the most authentic, heartwarming conversation between your two best friends...
It’s a lot about the challenges and joys of being an educator and parent, but even more so it’s about life and what it means to be human, doing the best we can to keep it real with the struggles and yet continue to believe unfailingly in ourselves, our kids and each other.
You’ll think deeply, laugh, be inspired, possibly cry (in a good way), and most of all, you’ll feel fortunate to be connected to these two awesome people!
