Okay students, grab your mace! (No, the other kind...)

Welcome to the Ether Game weekly Podcast! This week the Brain Trust playfully promotes pedagogy with our theme “Back To School.” Selections for this week’s show will include works that somehow address everyone’s favorite fall activity – the start of the school year. To get you started (or for those of you who just cannot wait for Tuesday nights), you can sharpen your skills with our podcast selection. Remember to keep listening for a portion of Tuesday night’s Teaser selection!
