Why did you create this podcast?

We started this journey because we believe world's education pioneers 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 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 media documentation, community Q&A and other goodies.


How do you finance the world tour?

The total budget for 12 months of non stop touring and podcast production is 143939 Euro. Below you can find a breakdown of budget categories and projected sources of funding.
