Podcast Review Podcast Review
I’m four episodes in, and this is one of the more valuable podcasts I’ve discovered as an instructor in Higher Ed. Elder covers a wide variety of podcasts and positions them effectively within the college classroom.
Interesting and useful
Reviewing a podcast that reviews podcasts is a bit escheresque, but let me just say that I always come away with something new. The host is witty and engaging.
Making an underutilized resource accessible.
Podcasts are such an interesting and helpful resource and yet are so under-utilized in the classroom. The Podcast Review Podcast is a great step toward correcting this. Thoughtful and insightful -- but also straighforward and concise -- its an excellent way for busy educators to become acquainted with the quality and usefulness of various podcasts in their pedogogical endeavors.
