Featured Content

Chris, AJ, and Stacey start season 3 of Podcast PD busier than ever before! Two of us are starting the year in new positions, one of us is on the move (literally). We can’t wait to get another school year and another year of Podcast PD underway!

AJ is a new administrator serving as a Supervisor of Instruction and Technology in East Rutherford, NJ.

Stacey is back in the classroom. She will be teaching 5th grade!

Chris has full schedule teaching in a new room, with a new ICS teacher and he’s teaching 3 additional courses at Rutgers this semester!

What We’re Listening To

AJ: The Mindful Educators Podcast – Made for teachers, by teachers. Erin and Dave Tashian, an awesome husband and wife team, are creating a community of educators who are cultivating a positive school culture one mindful classroom at a time. 7 episodes so far and growing… Episodes focus on Mindful practices to start the new year, balance as an educator, mindful listening and finding your personal motivation to stay positive.


Chris: the memory palace – The Memory Palace is a storytelling podcast and occasional radio segment created and produced by Nate DiMeo. It was a finalist for a Peabody Award in 2016. It is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX, a collective of independent podcasts. New episodes come out during the first and third weeks of the month, barring the occasional holiday break. I was exposed to this podcast listening to an episode of RadioLab that featured a number of clips from the memory place and Nate was on the show talking about the clips and how he makes the show.

Stacey: I am not listening to anything new. In fact, I am looking for a strategy to get from 1539 to PodcastZERO! Listeners, if you have a good strategy for me to get through my podcasts, I’m all ears. Vox me at iruntech!
