EDITOR’S NOTE: The current temporary theme we are using only credits a single guest. This podcast featured Mary Foster, Abram Trosky, Jacqueline E. Whitt and Ron Granieri.

Name a topic or an interest and you can probably find a podcast about it. With over 2 million podcasts and more than 48 million episodes somebody is talking about something you want or need to hear. Today we’re talking about our little corner of the podosphere. A BETTER PEACE welcomes Mary Foster, Abram Trosky, and Jacqueline Whitt to the virtual studio to talk about how they incorporate podcasts and podcasting in the classroom. They join podcast editor Ron Granieri to discuss how the medium can be used to share information in support of educational objectives as well as its utility in developing better communicators.

The way I use the medium is to offer students primary sources, people that have experienced what they’re talking about.
