FreshEd, Inc. is a US-registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that produces podcasts on education broadly defined. We don’t rely on advertisements or sponsored content and listeners never pay. All of FreshEd’s content is open-access and licensed under Creative Commons. This ethos contributes to Open Science and challenges many academic conventions. FreshEd’s catalog includes three shows, FreshEd with Will Brehm, Flux, and Eduquê.
FreshEd with Will Brehm
FreshEd with Will Brehm is an interview-style podcast that showcases cutting-edge research in the field of education. It is used in dozens of university courses around the world. All episodes are transcribed and some are then translated into Mandarin, French, Arabic, Vietnamese, and Portuguese. FreshEd with Will Brehm’s xChina initiative makes the show accessible in China. As part of this initiative, FreshEd collaborates on a program that teaches high school students Mandarin to English translation using FreshEd with Will Brehm episodes exclusively.
Whereas FreshEd with Will Brehm focuses mostly on established and early career researchers, Flux showcases the ideas and creativity of students. Through yearly Fellowships, Flux works with graduate students to turn their research interests into narrative podcasts. This pushes the boundaries of a research output (typically thought of as a written publication) and the medium of podcasting by incorporating academic methodologies.
Eduquê is a Portuguese-language podcast created in collaboration with FreshEd and the Brazilian Campaign for the Right to Education. The goal of Eduquê is to showcase new Portuguese-language research on education, broadly defined. The episodes are transcribed and translated into English.
