Glad I found this podcast!

I’d been looking for a good teaching/learning podcast, and this one covers a wonderful diversity of topics including super-techy and not-so-techy subjects. I think learning experience designers of all types can enjoy and learn from these conversations.

One of the best L&D podcasts out there

This has quickly become one of my Top 5 favorite podcasts. The conversations help me get charged up for my day! Mr. Rotolo has some fantastic guests that I recognize from the Learning & Development industry and beyond, and he does a great job of drawing out the best parts of what they're up to and how they approach solving everyday problems.
