  1. Boy, I’ve really been enjoying this podcast, listening to episodes as they come out as well as the back catalog. A few thoughts on this one:

    * I bet you’d love the podcast 99% Invisible: http://99percentinvisible.org

    * I agree completely that it can be hard to tell what students are thinking during class. That’s why it’s so important to get mid-semester feedback. Anonymity cuts both ways, but my experience so far has been that it’s a net positive; you get some annoying feedback, but you learn things you wouldn’t otherwise know (http://teachbetter.co/blog/2014/12/17/student-anonymity/).

    * MacSparky recommended Habit List a while back (http://www.macworld.com/article/2085007/the-iphone-habit-apps-that-help-you-keep-your-new-years-resolutions.html) and it got me flossing regularly after years of starting and stopping.

    • Thanks for your encouragement, Doug. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the podcast.

      I’ve been tempted by 99% Invisible before. Your recommendation caused me to finally add a few episodes to my podcast playlist. I’ll likely listen early next week, since my longer commute is M-W and I stay fairly close to home Th-Sun…

      Thanks for the link to your post on student anonymity, as well as David Sparks’ post.

  2. This may be old info by now, but I was searching your blog today for references to Yik-Yak, and came across this post and your call for help finding a “mystery commercial.” I think I’ve seen the one I think you’re referring to. Is it “If We Could See Inside Others’ Hearts”?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl2_knlv_xw

    Thank you for the thoughtful posts and interviews!

    • Dear Kerrie,

      Thank you for posting this link. It isn’t the one I had seen, but is 100x better. So powerful. Thanks, also, for your encouragement. It is such inspiration to me to know that you’re listening and getting something out of the show and blog.
