steve ostendorff & the temporary spartan race route


Episode description

Steve Ostendorff is the director of graduate admissions at Bank Street Graduate School of Education in Manhattan. We talk about commuting to work, and what Steve does to pass the time on his two-hour train ride. Part of his daily routine includes taking a nap, but more importantly doing his homework – because he's also a part-time doctoral student. Steve tells Lougan and Jackie about his department's efforts to roll out an online course.
