What made the experience of listening to Ep. 1: Band of Brothers (What Were You Thinking?) the most enjoyable?
As a high school teacher, I'm very aware of my teens' need for belonging, their need for purpose and identity. As an English teacher I want to use literature to help teens explore the big issues and the life defining moments. I'm not at all interested in standardized test taking.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ep. 1: Band of Brothers (What Were You Thinking?)?
Having teens think about the trajectory of their lives and defining for themselves which way they want to go is crucial. Teaching them how to discern fact from propaganda is a skill that will allow them to make those decisions.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I had a sense of relief that it was possible to change one young man's fate, and perhaps he will change the fates of many others through his story.

Any additional comments?
Everyone knows the teen years are rough. This helps explain how the brain works in teens and young adults vs adults. Understanding more about how the brain works can hopefully help people have more patience and stop harshly judging others. I hope we can all learn more and teach our children more. I hope we can all stop and think before making decisions. Actions have consequences, we need to train our brains more carefully. And we all need people that we can talk to and open up to about things, especially teenagers. They need strong supportive people to help guide them to make the right decisions. And sometimes, they just need someone to listen.
This was interesting and helpful in my opinion. It does get emotional. Some of the stories will break your heart. I hope it helps raise awareness and helps educate more people.
