Thoughts from a Teacher...
I love this podcast; it is exactly what I was looking for; I am currently the voice of TeachFirst in practice. In a classroom since September 2016, this Podcast and Publication has been significant in helping me to widen my gaze on the intricacies and development of the teaching profession. As a Psychology graduate I also agree with you that teaching is Social Psychology in action.
Great content - please improve sound quality
I always enjoy listening to the TES podcast. It's insightful and interesting and up-to-date. However, the sound quality really bugs me. Sometimes the journalist are not speaking close enough to the mic or there is background noise. I appreciate it is a free podcast but please consider improving sound quality.
