Yes, I have had someone from SHSU on Teaching in Higher Ed. Ric Montalongo was on episode 191.
I use Glisser almost exclusively in my speaking. It places everything on a web browser, so it is easy for me to navigate needing to use other people's devices to present. I also like that it has lots of options for connecting to social media, accepting and posing questions, etc. For in-class use, I like PollEverywhere, Mentimeter, and am learning more about Acadly (but haven't used it extensively).
Quizlet Live vs TopHat: Quizlet Live is a game format, based off of a deck of flash cards you build (or have your students build) in Quizled. TopHat is a polling and quizzing system for a class. It is more similar to PollEverywhere, Mentimeter, etc. TopHat is good if you want extensive tracking of student responses. Also, they have a lot of open textbooks they offer TopHat on "top" of - and the advantage of using TopHat in these instances is that the questions and other interactive content is already built for you.
Thanks for the story about your involvement in the scouts and the evidence of a lack of imagination in that context, as well.
Live Binders is definitely going on my list to check out - way of showcasing student work. Thank you.

The book I referenced that we are using with our emerging faculty is James M. Lang's Small Teaching.
Favorite tools for curation: Pinboard.in - the vast majority of it. I also have a few lists on YouTube of videos I curate (mostly for the kids), like Minecraft videos for our son. 🙂
My recommended podcasts? So glad you asked. Here's my 2019 list.

Thanks for the point about Ethel's lack of community connections as one of the things that prohibited her from knowing more jobs that didn't involve standing the entire time. This is reminding me of the different kinds of capital (I believe there are five, but can't seem to find a reference to a specific number right now). We tend to think of economic capital (the way it is usually referenced), but there are also things like social capital and cultural capital. Other kinds of assets our students can bring to school with them.
