I actually started this with my wife. She’s helping me organize the huge gaggle of content that is my brain. I have a passion for speaking that I can’t quite capture in the written word. Also, I think I’m funny, and I need you to check my ego. After all, who needs self-esteem?
The appeal of a Podcast to me is that when I talk about things, the content tends to arrive organically in a way that mirrors how I – and hopefully by extension, some other humans – actually think. This makes the consumption of the content easy to follow and intimate. I don’t think I’m some masterful guru with wisdom to share, but I do think that I’m learning every day, and I do think that the way I tend to reflect and connect events in my life is possibly useful to other people. Maybe it’s because I’m a teacher, or maybe it’s why I’m a teacher: they way I talk tends to provoke thought, and the process itself along with the result is more often than not an amusing one. Hence: Phan’s Homework – a teacher’s Podcast about school, home, and the limbo between. Please, if you join my audience, do write me with feedback. I want to commiserate, provide catharsis, and spark inspiration. I want more teachers listening to podcasts and less teachers burning out and thinking nobody understands the struggle.
The struggle is real. (Don’t forget the growl. Good.)
I am unsure about some the logistics of putting the podcast out; I have released it on Google Play Music, and I’m in the process of iTunes… I suppose I can have the feed run in a sidebar on this site, or simply link to it above. I could have used a feed from a category on this site, but I gave it its own site in case people still want to consume this content without having to see my podcast.
