Unique, informative, and inspirational

This podcast is memorable because it brings together a group of people to talk about a meaningful topic in a panel style, which is new for the podcast world! With wide ranging, yet all worthwhile and intense subjects, the hosts do a great job of balancing personal stories and research to reveal key insights

10 out of 10!!

From the phenomenal hosts to the inspiring guests, each episode has brought so much insight into this umbrella of literacy! Through games that promote breaking down barriers of entry in education to showing diversity and inclusion in the stories we read, this podcast tackles it all! I have learned & laughed through every episode that I’ve listened to! Highly recommend!!!
