I wanted to make some sort of reference to Wayne Gretzky in this episode’s title, but it wouldn’t make any sense. Aside from it being the 99th episode of the podcast since we relaunched as Table of (mal)Contents.
Yes, we’re really there after all this time.
But this week, we’re back with mostly good mics, and joined by a friend of the podcast, Will Mitchell. Will is a teacher, longtime listener, and a lover of books, and he kindly jumped on Zoom for a weird and wonderful conversation that covers… well, pretty much everything from public health to Dave’s cats. Listen in as we discuss:
- Scarlet shares her grievance with a recent editing choice
- If math teachers read math books for fun
- How many cats Dave currently has (and why he’s a cat lady but Will’s a cat man)
- How far we have to go if we have any hope of solving the ongoing health crises of the day
- How we can support teachers going into the new school year
- Will’s reading habits during the COVID-19 shutdown in Nashville
- Will’s choice for the (semi-retired) sucker-punch of the week
