Although it’s been a challenging year in multiple ways, the Natural Pod team has been constantly uplifted by the inspiring work and perseverance of our community. Earlier this year to amplify the voices of those committed to creating better learning environments, experiences and outcomes we started Natural Pod™ LIVE: an online streaming talk show where we interview the education leaders making change happen.

We’re sharing all eight episodes as an opportunity for you to learn from their personal stories. You get to hear directly about the challenges and opportunities they faced and their approaches for what’s possible in the future of education.
