This episode should have been posted 5 months ago.

Life got in the way and then digi-laziness and digi-procrastination and finally digi-denial kicked my butt.

I apologize Mike for dropping the ball on this one.

Your time is valuable and your story should have been told sooner.

Big thanks for sharing it with me.

I will definitely do better from now on.

Last June Allison and I tried to get something on tape, but tech issues crashed our party ... funny thing, we ended up chatting for over 30 minutes through sketchy wifi on a bunch of topics, some of which popped back up in this episode.

I love that we are returning to the table like no momentum was lost. Solid remained solid regardless of the time between. 

In this epi we re-wander through teacher joy, getting global in the local, and supporting teacher candidates.

This conversation was definitely worth it's 'wait'.

When I started this podcast a year ago I had little idea about the what, the how, or even my why in chasing conversations. I quickly cobbled together a list of questions that I thought an EDU podcaster would ask. And even as I struggled through my first episode with Jen Giffen @virtualgiff I realized that I would have to be more open. Open in my question frame, open in my mindset, and open to where the story takes me.

As soon as I released a little grip on the wheel, the stories emerged and took over.

In this episode I go where a story pulled me.

The horrific events of February 14th, 2018 that occurred at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida electrified me. I found my social and news feeds overflowing with content that enraged and confused me. And even though I wanted to talk with someone closer to the context I waited. I researched. I measured. I reflected and then I reached out to Brad Sheffler an educator and podcaster based out of Orlando.

This episode focusses in on how to talk about guns and schools. And honestly, I had no idea about how to do this. My questions felt awkard, my sense of clarity was fuzzy, and throughout the entire conversation I struggled with measuring my respect for the topic. Yet, I also wondered if this is what it feels like to unbox a truely pivotal topic.

I am incredibly grateful to Brad for his honest and open support of my learning.

I highly reccommend that you check out The Beast blog on Wordpress at the same time as you listen to this podcast. Kelly and Andrea's pieces set up a scale to our conversation that cracks open many of the silos that are so easy to lock ourselves into. And at the same time, they offer their vulnerability as a vehicle to go deeper, ask another question, and keep seeking.

At every turn in our conversation I was reminded of the necessesities in education - the power to share, the grace of collegial conversation, the getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, and the appreciation that comes from giving from our whole self.

So FYI, take a pause or two to dig into the backstory of @thebeastedu and enjoy the podcast.
