Essential for understanding Ed politics
Probably the best podcast on education that I've listened to and that's out there.
Must listen edu podcast
If you care about the major education issues, policies, and debates of our time then you need to listen to this podcast. Though there are many edu-podcasts out there, none of them come close to matching the level of insight (or wit) of 'Have You Heard'. Give it a listen and you won't be disappointed.
Best Podcast I've Ever Co-Hosted
I've never co-hosted any other podcast. That said, this is the best podcast -- by far -- that I have ever co-hosted. Each time I listen to this podcast, I think: "wow...that sounds a lot more professional than it did when we recorded it." And then I realize that Jennifer and our producer are putting in lots of hours to make me sound smarter than I actually am. The episodes turn out so well, that I actually forget I'm listening to myself.
