On WTDY the other day, talked Walker’s new #edreform proposals, opposite of free-market

Tim and I recorded an impromptu At the Chalk Face episode on WTDY in Madison yesterday. Tim was in Madison on business, I was at home in my pajamas. I’m guessing it will be broadcast this Saturday to keep up with current events in Wisconsin, like Gov. Walker’s new proposals for education. That’s what we […]

Thanks to @rexcharger for posting our show with Nancy Carlsson-Paige

The radio station that we were broadcasting Sunday shows in Wisconsin went through a bit of a program or format change over the holidays that I think is still being settled. In the meantime, the great shows we’ve recorded are trickling out. For now, you can listen to one on Sound Cloud here. If you […]

@thechalkface and @slekar interview Jonathan Kozol, listen to the segments here


While in Seattle, we passed out some pretty nifty looking At the Chalk Face sampler CDs, courtesy of WTDY. There’s four tracks, two with Nancy Carlsson-Paige and the second two with Jonathan Kozol. These new shows are going to be coming out Sundays at 10AM EDT over the next several weeks. For now, I’m embedding […]

@thechalkface on #wtdy new new episodes available here and they’re awesome! http://soundcloud.com/jjo-band-camp/sets/the-chalk-face-1

If you have limited time, I would recommend you listen to the fourth segment with Nichole, a Madison, WI area teacher. The three of us play a game where I ask Tim and Nichole to guess if a charter school name is fake or real. You see, the charter movement assumes they own achievement. So, […]

When you see “Special Edition,” those are all 17 shows from WTDY. Soundcloud is fine, but it’s not too portable. So, download the shows and support alternative education media. […]
