On the Air: EdSurge Edtech Podcast, Week of February 2

We're back for week 2 of the EdSurge podcast!

This week on the show, we run through the top stories from EdSurge this week and discuss TES' new CEO, Yik Yak's effects on the classroom and try our best to describe a graph to you using only audio. That last bit seemed like a pretty bad idea at first, but we think it turned out ok.

A big thanks to everyone who listened to last week's inaugural podcast, and to those who sent in feedback on the show! To the many of you who asked when/if our podcast would be available on iTunes or Stitcher, we're working on that, and hope to have the show in a more subscribe-able form soon. We've also added, below the podcast itself, the links to all of the stories that we discuss.

Enjoy the show!
