What is a podcast and why should you listen?
A podcast is basically a talk radio show (without the annoying commercials) that you can download and listen to anywhere in the world. I recently decided to delve straight into podcasting after becoming a huge fan of a couple of podcasts including- Death, Sex and Money and Freakonomics Radio. I love that podcasts don’t make you listen to annoying songs, but gives you great content that you control. I listen to them while working out, taking a shower and driving to work.

So what’s the “angle” of The Educator’s Room’s podcast?
We want to use The Educator’s Room Podcast with Franchesca Warren as a time to bring our articles to life AND to interview some educators who are proverbially kicking butt both inside and outside the classroom. Our podcasts are not meant to be long. As of right now we’ve tried to keep them under 15 minutes, but we MAY bring them on for a bit longer depending on the topic and guest.
When do new episodes get released?
That’s the beauty of podcasting. I can record them on the way to work, in my closet (while hiding from my kids) or at my desk. We will try to release new ones on Sunday, but don’t be surprised if you see some sprinkled throughout the week. I will make sure that each new podcast is shared on this site as soon as it becomes live.
How can I ask a question for you to answer in the podcast?
On our Facebook page we get thousands of questions every year. So go on there and either DM us a question or post it to the wall. Either way we will address it. If you don’t do Facebook, simply send us an email at email@example.com!
