A podcast where I sit down with everyday people talking about everyday things. Join me for a cuppa!
S.2 E.4 || Jonothan Kim Sing || Mathematics and the Art of Teaching
"The first time you're going to have disruptions [in the classroom]... the first thing you want to do is go on the attack... what I realised was that there are things going on in the students' lives which don't excuse these behaviours but they explain them."
This upcoming episode my friend Jonathan Kim Sing (Mista Kim Sing) a maths teacher and youtuber (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCia1fNrP6W40JXW3SlZtkNg), explores teaching both the discipline (maths) and the student. We explore his journey of becoming a teacher, and the influences that shapes his how he teaches and engages those within the classroom.
And yes, I did ask the age old question: "What has the theory of differentiation and parabolas got to do with my everyday life?"
S.2 E.3 || Rob Nicholls || Friendship, Disability and Community
"I feel like I'm being accepted for who I am, and I don't have to pretend to be anything other than who I am..."
This upcoming episode, my friend Rob Nicholls joins me to chat about his life-long journey in relating with people with disabilities, forming friendships, learning from others and how they have been mutually fruitful.
S.2 E.2 || Ian McGilvray || Painting, refugees and humanising others
Ian is an artist based in the Blue Mountains of Greater Sydney. Recently he spent time with Syrian refugees in Lebanon; there, he not only taught them how to paint, but he painted a set of portraits of them.
I caught up with him at the exhibition earlier this year to talk about his time in Lebanon and his task of humanising people who may be othered.
S2 E1 - Wendy Porter || Motherhood, Loss and Grief
Grab a cuppa and join me as I chat with Wendy this week.
Wendy lost her mother at the age of 7. The last words she remembered was:
"That's Elvis Presley."
Before her mother fell onto the floor. From aged 7 began a journey of grief and processing that continues today.
Conversations with Matt Cain - Thinking wise and philosophy
This week I sit down with Matt Cain who's a philosophy honours student at Notre Dame and we talk about thinking wise, acting ethically, philosophy and contemplate a little on the application of cartesian duality and augustinian thought! It's a little heavier than normal, but great your favourite cuppa and spend a little time with us :)
Conversations with Joel Deacon - Parenting
What does it mean to be a broken human being and parent children? How is Bluey a great father figure? How does a pastor discipline his kids? What does it mean for God to be a Father to us? We ask these questions to Joel Deacon, associate pastor of City on a Hill Melbourne.
