  • Summary

  • Ever get the feeling that not everything is cool with school? Best-selling author Neal Pollack is dissatisfied with what his teenage son, Elijah, is learning in his studies. Neal wants to fill in the gaps, while Elijah just wants him to chill out a little. Together, they embark on the father-son field trip of a lifetime, which includes stops in New York's poetry-slam scene, a medical-marijuana dispensary, and a convention to discuss evolution with 1,700 biologists.

    When you add Extra Credit to your library you will receive all 10 episodes, each with a runtime of approximately 20 minutes.

Safety is important

Neal and Elijah seem to have a great relationship and are very open with each other, and I think that makes this podcast very interesting and easy to listen to.

Wonderful!!

I loved this series! I listened to these with my eleven year old daughter and it sparked some really interesting conversations. Episode 2 was great btw! I'm looking at enrolling my daughter in an OWL program when she's a bit older, but never knew a program like that existed. Keep the episodes coming!
