My guest here is Gilman Whiting, the creator of the Scholar Identity Model and Scholar Identity Institute out of the Peabody College of Education at Vanderbilt University.
If you’d like to learn more about the Scholar Identity Institute:
I initially taped this interview for my day job; I’m putting a condensed version up over here to get it out sooner. As I say at the beginning of this podcast — although I had a nasty cold, so perhaps it’s hard to understand me — the interview was 54 minutes long. It was a really interesting, elaborate discussion on education, race and race politics; here, I cut it down, but later in January, the full audio will be up on the web (either here or at the LM site linked above).
Doing this podcast gave me a new idea for 2012: education and other social issues roundtables. Five people from different walks of life all discussing a big issue. We tape it and post it. It could be awesome. Here’s hoping.

See you back here after MLK Day with a new episode.
