It looks to me like the website that hosted these podcasts may have gone down. I’ll see if I can figure out what happened to them.

Thanks Dan. I did find the new link in the end: https://justicecentered.com/resources/math-as-play-for-elementary-kids

I wish I’d had a Maths teacher like you growing up. Fortunately I’ll be home educating our 3 kids (currently aged 5, 3 and 3), so I’m going to try some of your games with them and they’re bound to benefit from your work. Your Tiny Polka Dot game is being delivered today and I’m sure the kids will love it.
