Eh...

I’m generally interested in the topics that are discussed, however the format leaves much to be desired. Most episodes sound very scripted and robotic. A natural flow and conversational style would go a long way.

Superbly Social

Greg and his highly knowledgeable guests are making sociology fun again! The wide variety of topics they cover and the easy to understand way in which they deliver them had me hooked from my very first listen. They’re also personable and funny, which let’s be honest; isn’t always the easiest to find in the Sociology world. Thanks for putting out such a great show Greg - keep up the great work!

Who is your audience?

Oh NASW how I wish I could support you. Sadly once again your navel-gazing is your downfall. Are you trying to educate fellow social workers, the public at large, gain members?? It’s unclear but what is clear is how dull these interviews are (well, ok, to be fair, the first five were snore-fests.)Do you not wonder why your membership is so low? NASW is so woefully out of touch, your conferences are outrageously expensive (and irrelevant) and it all appears to be due to the fact that you don’t really represent our profession very well. This podcast is a prime example of this issue. Why oh why would anyone join NASW?I am a member of three competing Sw professional organizations. C’mon NASW. With the prices you charge, you could have such dynamic leadership but instead you remain in the 20th century. What a pity.

Podcasts aren’t advertisements

I know you’re trying here, but I think you’re missing the mark. People listen to podcasts to learn something or for entertainment. It should be more like a radio program than an advertisement for the NASW. Try interviewing leaders in the field about their research, practice, their impression on current events, whatever. Have people talk about their experiences of marginalization from whatever group you’d like, what it’s like to be black/Hispanic/trans/gay/etc in certain parts of the country or world or whatever is interesting and educational. Have someone talk about the history of mental health or adoption or the prison system or literally any area of interest to social workers. If I want to learn about the annual conference or what programs are taking place during social work month I can find that information online, that’s not what a podcast should be for.
