Friday Round-Up: 3 Podcasts You Can't Miss

Time for a Friday Round-Up, where I share 3 of my favorite finds.

I just recently found Leigh Calazzo's blog and then bumped into her newly created podcast. She posts a 15-20 minute preview of new releases and book talks. I really rely on her recommendations for my own purchases, and it's much easier for me to listen to a podcast then to sift through pages of SLJ reviews.

2) 10-Minute Teacher

Her shows are a bit longer (closer to 30 minutes), but jam-packed with tips, strategies, and interviews. I find myself going back again and again to my favorite episodes. And as an extra bonus, my favorite CoP episodes include:

That's it for this Friday's round-up. What are your favorite podcasts?
