Started as a pandemic ‘comfort project’ but growing into something so much more, Coffee and Geography was a podcast where I simply chatted to people. These chats led to exploring connections and intersections through a geographical lens, but also helped to broaden my horizons, check my own privilege, and bring back some faith in humanity. Bring a brew and come and find out what I’ve learnt, which can be useful anecdotes and aids in the classroom, from these ‘everyday’ conversations.
A few days ago I attended, in person, my first Geographical Association Annual Conference since 2019. The same was true of all other geography educators, since the last two had been totally online. This conference is for geography teachers, academics, exhibitors and students. It is always a wonderful event. Now that I have a podcast, I took the opportunity of grabbing my mobile recording equipment and doing a bit of recording for you all! Enjoy the listen.
It’s been my first full foray into podcating as a host and producer and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Sure, the production side of things has been taxing at times, but I've loved developing new skills. But without a shadow of a doubt it has been all the guests that have given me the most pleasure. To celebrate and reflect, I thought I'd put together a piece of poetry. Enjoy.
If you're a Geography or STEM educator, and you're looking for a convincing arguement to get those youngsters into your courses as a way of increasing their options for the future. Then look no further! You're going to want to read this!
