The Anonymous Teacher Podcasts
The Anonymous Teacher Podcasts are episodes I’m very proud of. I honestly think they are some of my most important work. Men and women came on The History Voyager Podcast to talk about difficulties and issues around education. I don’t know their names, and only one of them told me where they were.
I realized that I needed to do these episodes because so many people who are podcasters are also teachers. I heard stories in confidence which were heartbreaking and hair-raising. It also occurred to me that these sorts of stories were happening largely outside of the gaze of adult society.
The things they would allude to would cause me to realize that teachers not only had a unique finger on the pulse of things.
Kids having to deal with constant digital harassment. Teachers having to deal with students already having access to the answers through their smartphones.
These are the citizens of the future.
