Essential Podcast for Teachers of Composition, Rhetoric, and Writing Studies
This a fantastic podcast just beginning to find its footing. Kyle Stedman has put in a ton of work not only hosting and producing the show, but also conceptualizing its form and fostering a small, but growing community around it. The information is rich. Stedman doesn’t waste a whole lot of time making the podcast about himself; only to the extent that it helps us understand his own challenges and solutions as they are relevant to the episode topics. Great ethos! There are other podcasts out there focusing on a similar audience, but Plug, Play, Pedagogy is quickly emerging as one of the best produced, and one of the richest in content. Can’t wait to keep listening!
