One thought on “02. Why Online Classes Matter”
Excellent content, to the point without wordiness. Useful length of 15:00 min. Very high audio quality and good editing of content. Is there Close Captioning available or a transcript?
Thank you for sharing this! I, definitely, will be following these podcasts and the author on social media.
