Amazing show

Shane is fantastic at interviewing key guests and teasing out the valuable knowledge they have to share. Great podcast. Thanks Shane!

Gaming?

Had to stop listening when what was supposed to be a podcast about gaming turned into how bad schooling is. Although I am ALL about reforming schools to be more creative, empowering places and I would love to go gradeless, it is quite a luxury to be “unschooling” your kids. Let’s hep fix what’s wrong.
