Celebrating 500 Conversations About the Future of Education

To celebrate our 500th episode of Trending in Education, host and Founder, Mike Palmer reflects on the origins of the show and how it has evolved and grown through the years. Mike recounts the pod’s humble beginnings as a skunkworks media R&D project to its exit from Kaplan to continue as an independent pod amid all of the tumult and disruption we’ve been navigating since early 2020. It’s been an incredible ride and we couldn’t have gotten there without our guests, listeners, and supporters. Many thanks to all of the “Friends of the Show” out there as we continue to dive into what’s next.

Here’s to continuing the conversation for another 500+ episodes in the future! Thanks as always for listening.
