Abstract: Twenty educators from around the world, from four different continents, were interviewed on a widely published podcast, Kōrero EAG, showcasing their innovative teaching practices around PBLs, STEM, and educational technology, to name a few. Post publication, participants were surveyed regarding their feelings of teacher burnout, defeatism, overall motivation and value in their work. Results showed that teachers’ have at some point had feelings of defeatism and burnout; however, having their work featured on a widely published podcast contributed to increased feelings of value in their work by others as well as gratification in their work. The results of this study can be used to promote the work of other educators through podcasting and publishing publicly.
