I really enjoy listening to Sharon and Fred because the format of this podcast is such that it feels like I'm sitting in the room with them while they discuss the topic of the day. This makes the podcast more engaging and doesn't put me to sleep. As for the topics and content, Sharon and Fred definitely know their stuff around education and technology. I learn about the state of the art in ed tech as well as regular teaching topics fast and often.
