I really liked the first three episodes. When the radio silence dragged on into the fourth month I was starting to worry that the podcast would cease to be a going concern. I was so thrilled to wake up yesterday morning to find a new episode in my feed, and apparently there are further interviews in the bag.

Sounds interesting. Hmm, no RSS feed mentioned anywhere? too bad. Don't have time to check on everyone's site each day.

Thanks for sharing--I can't wait to listen. I also shared it with my friend (a non-native) who is teaching primarily Native students in rural Alaska. Hopefully they'll listen!
