Jo’s Show – Podcast Pick of the Week

What’s the show about?

Each week, you can hear from a pair of our Podcast Pick of the Week presenters: 

Jo and Alistair 

Penny and Nav 

Matt and Sam 

They will be chatting about their favourites, their new finds and interviewing podcast makers from both inside and outside of the world of education. They would also love to hear what you have been listening to.  

When can you hear it?

9am Sunday

How can you get involved?

You can email and indicate which presenters the email is for, leave an answerphone message on 0800 246 1555, again saying who the message is for.   
However, the presenters would really love it if you would record a little voice message directly on the website so that they can include your message in a future programme


Jo is an Assistant Principal at a sixth form college in East Manchester and has been a teacher for 25 years. She originally started out in early years and then moved into further education to train early years colleagues. Jo now trains new further education teachers and leads adult and higher education within the college.  She has a passion for teacher research and as such leads on opportunities for colleagues across the FE sector to undertake and share practitioner research. She’s an advocate for adult education and is currently co leading a little grassroots programme to keep adult education within the national conversation.

Outside of the day job, Jo co-hosts the #FEresearchpodcast with Alistair Smith and is studying for her third masters level qualification – this time she hopes to continue towards a PhD. Jo is a novice shepherdess and when outdoors, she can usually be found in the fields with her small flock of Black Welsh Mountain sheep.
