In March 2020, the world changed and with it, so did the world of higher education. Amidst that chaos and confusion, EAB launched a podcast with modest ambitions. We wanted to create a platform to share insights and research, both internally and externally sourced, with those working in higher education. Two years later, we are gratified to know that our show has found an audience that appreciates the different perspectives we provide on issues that matter to them. We thank you for listening and we thank the many guests who have shared their time and unique points of view on our podcast.

As we approach the 100th episode of the podcast (featuring a conversation with Inside Higher Ed Editor, Scott Jaschik, which will air on April 19) we wanted to share some of our favorite episodes with you. We hope you enjoy listening to them as much we enjoyed making them.
