This is just a quick little episode as a welcome to those new to the profession. It's the best job in the world but it's challenging.
Glad to have you on board.
Stay shiny Pony Boy!
Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) have finally made Episode 100. Crack out a bottle of champagne and lets' celebrate... actually scrap that this one is a super downer. Listener discretion is advised.
Pete, a proud Kamilaroi man, gets super angry and about a teacher gamifying their classroom using the framework of colonialism.
John then brightens the day with new study from the OECD that finds that Australian teachers are have higher workload and more administration.

This week/fortnight/month Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) barely manage to get an episode out with John on the editing decks. He's pretty rubbish.
John ruminates on a listener comment and laments the perceived goal of edupreneurs of aiming bigger and not wasting their life in the classroom.
Pete regales us with the link between teaching and magic and his admiration for Penn and Teller. Romance, precision and generalisation.
Then John finishes up with a teacher who has put together a African-american book list so that little black boys and girls can read abut themselves.
