Down the Hall – Episode 46 – Techs From the Crypt

Halloween is coming up, and we have a frightfully good episode for our loyal listeners. (Yes, despite what Dave says in the episode, we do know that Halloween is on Wednesday. Fiona was right).

Dave speaks to two graduates from the MET program who live in Jamaica. Denise Stoney-James and Keisha Edwards-Hamilton give their insights into what the program was like for them as international students, how the coming together of different cultures in the program enriched their experiences, and what they have taken from the program to further their teaching careers.

In addition, your hosts discuss some Halloween history and traditions and try to avoid waking the creatures of the night that haunt this holiday.

They are marginally successful.
