I am a second year graduate student in a Learning Design and Technology Master's degree program and a full-time Instructional Designer/Trainer.
I just want to say that I love this podcast. The interviews are so amazing and so many topics are directly relevant to my work and personal interests. Granted, I am a podcast addict – I’ll be the first to admit it - so I'm usually multi-tasking when I listen to them. However when, I listen to the eLearning Podcast I have to make sure I have nothing else in front of me because I usually have to take notes or review show notes for links to resources. I have shared episodes with my supervisor and co-workers on more than few occasions.
Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work.
