Table Top Inventing - Podcast Guest Questions

Table Top Inventing is on a mission to save the world! Seriously though... We have a big mission – inspiring a generation of kids to be tinkerers, explorers, innovators, and deep thinkers by giving them the tools they need to create, invent, and become world changers! That is why we want to talk to YOU!

Thank you for taking the time to complete this guest intake form. We are VERY interested in what you think about the current state of education and where things might go from here, and VERY excited to have the chance to interview you for our podcast!

(1) Contact

(2) Biography

(3) Connections

(4) Insight

Scheduling date/time preferences - We try to schedule all of our interviews on Wednesdays but can be flexible that does not work out for you.


We like to use a short bio (3-5 sentences) to introduce you before the interview, and a longer bio to add to the episode page. This helps our audience understand who you are.

What job title would you like to have listed on your episode page?

  • Organization Affiliation

What work, school, or other affiliation would you like listed on your episode page?

  • Short Bio

Highlight who you are in 3-5 sentences. Don't worry about adding too much. We can edit if we need to. This will be used for your introduction at the beginning of the interview.

  • Long Bio

If you already have a bio online that you would like us to use, add the URL here. You can also copy/paste the information you would like us to include on the episode page.

  • URLs

What would you like us to link to on your episode page? These can be work, personal, special projects, interesting resources - in short anything that you think listeners would be interested in that relates to you. Include the site name, the URL, and a very short description.



The responses here can be brief. You can include as little or as much detail as you would like.

  • Inspirational Quote

List a quote here that has been inspirational to you. This could be related to learning, teaching, or anything else you find inspirational. Include the author, if known.

What was the last thing you made? It doesn't have to be complicated - cookies? someone smile? a homemade card?

What is the most recent new thing you have learned (either about or how to do)?
