Less on Education, More on Liberal Ideology
95% of this podcast is literally "The white guy" and "The system". I was hoping for a nice serious series that you could sit back and listen to at a casual pace. Turns out this is just two people laughing at history and blaming things on founding father and the people that got them to where they are. Disappointed.
Learn AND Laugh
Jennifer and Paul are entertaining and this podcast is great for educators who are looking for information about the history of our profession. I think it's a must listen for students who are deciding to study education.
Nicely produced podcast from a technical POV as well!
