Sometimes, people are so passionate about a particular topic that they’ll do something crazy — like, create a podcast.
Elementary school teacher Bob Sprankle is one of those people. In the summer of 2005, he created the Bobby Bucket Show — a podcast about children’s books that introduced children to books thematically, taught comprehension and literary devices using guest characters, interviewed book creators and did on-location reporting in libraries and book stores.
Mark speaks with teacher and podcaster Bob Sprankle about the Bobby Bucket Show, introducing books to children, getting hooked on reading no matter what the book, and using books to learn about the weightier issues of life.
During the interview, there is a one minute section about 11 minutes in to the show that has audible crackling in it. We apologize that we were not able to correct this short inconvenience.
