    Season 1 Outtakes and Bloopers

    Season 1 Outtakes and Bloopers

    It’s the season finale! Here are some chuckles and extra bits that I couldn’t leave in the episodes, but wanted you to have anyway. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    We will be back with Season 2 on Wednesday January 29th, 2020!

    Until then, you can get in touch by emailing stumblethroughpod@gmail.com or hanging out with me on Instagram (we’re stumblethroughpod) or our Facebook page. Tell me the things you want to know about being an adult, or what you want an episode on. It would mean the world if you could leave a review; it talks to the algorithm so other people can find us, plus it puts a big silly grin on my face. Can’t wait to chat to you again in the new year!

    Keep well,

    Paula

    Emotional First Aid with Janani Jeganathan

    Emotional First Aid with Janani Jeganathan

    Bones aren’t the only thing that can break, and our mental health is just as instrumental to our well being as physical health. I’ve brought back my favourite med student, Janani, to have a chat about how we can take care of ourselves (and each other) in after a punch in the feels.

    This will be the second last episode of the season, and Stumble Through will be back January 29th 2020 with more tips, chuckles and hugs through your headphones. If you have an idea for an episode, email me at stumblethroughpod@gmail.com (I would LOVE to hear from you).

    Keep well,

    -Paula

    Also, at about 18:30 minutes in there are some sirens in the background. Just a heads up in case you are listening to this while driving.

    Going Plastic Free with Jennifer Laycock

    Going Plastic Free with Jennifer Laycock

    Hooray it’s a bumper episode! In this episode we get into the specifics of what it means to be plastic free. We talk about beginner, middle and champion level ways to incorporate it into your life. Jen, who you may remember from our episode on job searching, is a really passionate educator on the subject, and talks about it with a lot of humour, so it’s really easy to understand how it could apply to you.

    Jen is a theatre maker, eco educator, clown, award winning actor and director, and just a phenomenal human. Check out her Instagram, check out her website, get to one of her market events for Fetch Vintage.

    Keep well,

    Basic First Aid with Janani Jeganathan

    Basic First Aid with Janani Jeganathan

    Remember when we had to do life saving in PE? Or those first aid courses? Yeah, me neither. Which is why I think this is one of the most useful episodes we have made so far. Click through to see the most researched show notes I have ever done. There are numbers for non-emergency medical services for every state and territory, mental health help lines, Priceline first aid kits, and more! If you have any services to contribute, find our Facebook group and we can start a thread!
    Janani is a final year med-student and soon to be trainee doctor. She is a wonderful human who is quite literally making the world a happier, healthier place. Neither of us are experts on the subject of health (yet), but we’ve done a lot of reading and research to put this together for you. J more so than me, but still. We had a lot of fun making the episode, and I hope you feel a bit more capable at the end of it.
    Keep well,

    Career Spotlight: with Teri Steer

    Career Spotlight: with Teri Steer

    We’re long overdue for another career spotlight, and so this week I chat to my friend Teri Steer about her career path to becoming a stage manager at La Mama. La freaking Mama. That’s so cool I’m not even going to swear about it. Teri is a stage manager, designer, and a familiar face in Melbourne and Brisbane tech crews. One of the many things I admire about Teri is her resilience, and it really shines through as we talk about her journey to where she is now. Her path hasn’t been simple, and that is what makes her sharing it so valuable I think. One of the key lessons from this episode is that the most important thing to do for your career, is realise it is yours. And you have got to do what is best for you; do your degree slower, work on projects while you do it, change your major, whatever best serves you and your growth, do that.
    Keep well,
    -Paula

    Freelancing with Shashin Weeratunga

    Freelancing with Shashin Weeratunga

    Freelancing is rewarding, empowering, difficult, wobbly, and a way of working that in many ways allows you to live life on your own terms. Freelancing is the most adult thing I can imagine because it requires you to be entirely responsible for your work, your time, your choices, your admin, everything. This week I get to talk to the brilliant Shashin, who is an advertising consultant, marketer, graphic designer and photographer. So basically, he’s like, a miracle worker. Sash is also just the most genuine, enigmatic, creative powerhouse and a bloody delight. Click on through to the show notes to see his work on Behance, or stalk his Insta for gorgeous landscapes.

    Are you a freelancer? What do you do! Find us on socials and tell us how the episode resonated with you. I’d love to put faces to the numbers and get to know you all a bit better.

    Keep well,

    -Paula

Hard to not enjoy or laugh along!

Paula presents a range of topics that vary from the wide ranging to narrow focus in a thoughtful and well constructed format.
It also helps that there is great chemistry with each guest and if you don’t find yourself at least chuckling at something each episode I would be surprised. High point is the final of season one and the episode with Steve and either the one before or after it. I was killing myself laughing in both episodes. Get on this now or you’ll wish you had when you do. Can’t wait for season two to kick off 😄
