Improve the behavior of students for substitute teachers in the classroom. Episode 236 - Bad Behavior For The Substitute Teacher Monday, February 12, 2018 Host: Timothy Rausenberger
"Just because you love something doesn’t mean you can’t suck at it." - Mike Rowe Mike Rowe (@mikeroweworks) is perhaps the best storyteller and pitchman I've ever had on the show. You may know Mike Rowe as the host of Dirty Jobs. Mike Rowe is a TV host, writer, narrator, producer, actor and spokesman. His performing career began in 1984 when he faked his way into the Baltimore Opera to get his union card and meet girls, both of which he accomplished during a performance of Rigoletto. His transition to television occurred in 1990 when — to settle a bet — he auditioned for the QVC Shopping Channel and was promptly hired after talking about a pencil for nearly eight minutes. There, he worked the graveyard shift for three years, until he was ultimately fired for making fun of products and belittling viewers. Why listen to this episode? You will learn: Secrets of the perfect pitch How Mike flew around the world for free (until he got caught) Why to pursue opportunity instead of passion How being different can help you win in business and life The business of Mike Rowe Favorite books, voice-over artists, and much, much more...

When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories, the best place by the fire was kept for... The Storyteller. In 1987, a TV show unlike any other premiered on NBC. It had a simple premise: an old man sits by the fireplace and tells his dog a story. The Storyteller starred John Hurt and Brian Henson (as Dog) and ran for only one season. Based on real folktales, it was a marriage of ancient tales and modern technology that featured creations from the Jim Henson Creature Shop. Join us by the fire this week as we talk about the history of this incredible show, along with some of our favorite episodes. We thought this would be a perfect episode to end season 2! We will be back releasing weekly episodes VERY soon. Until then, stay cool Cassettes! For more information, check out
