    Class Dismissed: Let's Diversify Community Sourced Education!

    Class Dismissed: Let's Diversify Community Sourced Education!

    Live from THE PARK! Big thanks to everyone for tuning in, listening up and speaking out during this first season of the Transnatural Perspectives Podcast. The journey has just begun but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past season. It's be great and it's also been a ton of work behind the scenes (and maybe on our brains too!) and some critical distance is in order to recharge and marinate with some really expansive ideas on the horizon! In this episode I discuss Oslo Parks, Podcast Origins, Shout out to teachers, evolving perspectives on community based education and, of course, my top 17 episodes of the season. While we break, I hope you have time to enjoy yourself and catch up on all of our previous episodes while you're at it! Please Share, Subscribe & Support this podcast!
