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.
The first of, hopefully many, Geogramblings interviews! I talk to Kate O'Donnell from the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco for Discover the World Education's "International Connections" TeachMeet (broadcast on Thursday 11th June 2020). This blog post gives the full 10-minute edit of the interview, where you can get some examples of teaching & learning resources for your Science, Geography lessons and beyond, no matter where you are in the world! If you like 'geographers' interviewing 'geographers', a plug is also given to a rather Curious Geographer!
"Geography: Will You Marry Me?" - A piece of performance poetry for the #InspringGeogStories project. Performed at the Geographical Association's Annual Conference (GAConf19) TeachMeet. Click here for the lyrics and recording of the performance.
A message for all students entering an exam period, and the teachers/educators supporting them. You're all incredible. Believe in yourself, and to yourself be kind. Whatever happens, it's just another stepping stone.
"For The Curious!" - A piece of performance poetry with timelapse footage in tribute to the Exploratorium.
Working on my own visualisation skills, a conversation sparks bittersweet memories of one of the masters of the art.
