Self-Determined Education w/ Miriam Swords Kalk

Episode #22

My guest today is Miriam Swords Kalk, sister of our guest from Episode 6, Sam Kalk. This episode is a connection between some of the favorite subjects of previous episodes like Self-Determination Theory which we talked about with Sam, education which we have discussed with a lot of guests like Episode 14 with Coach Rudy, contextualized in human-centered design Ricardo Martins, Episode 13. All this to say… I am just very excited for this culmination of information.
