Is back-to-school really the most wonderful time of year? - Episode 444 - The Scribble with Jeremy Bradley

The Scribble with Jeremy Bradley

18-08-2023 • 30 mins

Class is back in session -- or it will be -- for students around the world. Jeremy Bradley takes a walk down memory lane and shares stories about preparing for a new school year. It had all the excitement: picking out pencil crayons, color-coding notebooks, organizing a backpack. All stuff that today's kids, well, probably don't do... or at the very least consider lame-o. Later, JB shares his memories about what he liked and didn't like about certain classes. The endless Shakespeare lessons in English class. Why? What was the point? Has it ever come in handy over 20 years later? (Maybe that's debatable, but for the most part, no.) Whether you like/liked school or hate/hated school, you'll have an opinion on the conversation this week.
