The #PhysEd Podcast

So this is exciting!

Over the last few months, I have become addicted to podcasts. I think it all started with me having to commute much further to work and hearing one Justin Bieber song too many on the radio. Soon after, I started checking out Apple’s Podcast app and decided to subscribe to a few podcasts to try them out. Before I knew it, I was hooked!

One podcast I love is “The Random Show” with Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss. In their very irregular podcast, the two tech entrepreneurs usually have an informal conversation (usually over a couple bottles of wine) about what’s new in their life, any cool gadgets/apps they’re playing around with, and any tech companies they think we should look out for.

I thought it would be sweet to start a similar podcast for all things #physed. I know I always feel excited after shooting the breeze with other physical educators, especially when we get into talking about tech in PE. That being said, I decided to contact my friend Nathan Horne (@PENathan) to see if he’d be down to start such a project.

He was.

About a thousand DMs, emails, and Facebook group postings later, Nathan and I have got our first episode of what we’re calling “The #PhysEd Podcast” ready to share with you.

This project is still very much so a work in progress, but we’re both pretty excited about it and we’re pumped about where it could go. We really hope the #physed community appreciates it and that you’ll all want to get involved at some point. Regardless, Nathan and I will keep publishing these podcasts because… well… they’re bloody fun to make.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. I’ll keep you posted once the podcast is available on iTunes for subscriptions.

Cheers!
