Why did you create this podcast?
Our motivation is two-fold. First, we believe learning happens in multiple ways and places, besides schools, and we should get better at measuring and sharing the impact of informal learning. Second, we believe world's education innovators deserve better storytelling.
There are so many incredible people doing valuable work to unf*^ck our education system but their effort and stories rest untold. Few of those who do share, have terrible production and design quality. It hurts.
What is the podcast concept?
Every week we travel to a new a new city, dive into a new research topic, and interview local projects. The research topic is always dictated by local projects, which are sources by the community.
What format does your podcast have?
Every episode is an intimate ±1h portrait of our guest. We strive to bring you the story behind innovative learning spaces, all around the world - what drives the team, what is their routine, how do they see the world, how do they solve challenges, how do they learn new things and much more. Every episode is accompanied with social documentation, community Q&A and other goodies.
