"One aspect which creates misunderstanding in people about me but which makes me highly accessible to others is my lack of formality. I’ve never needed to hide behind my academic qualifications or speak in high academic prose. One reason I left academia was because of its lack of accessibility which I was a victim of because of my own profound dyslexia. All parents I meet feel intimidated by education. However, this doesn’t mean I have a simple way of seeing the world. And if I’ve created it for others it’s formed by endless research and methodology. I’ve spent my life focusing on how others need to receive communication. How each personality hears slightly differently. I’ve achieved what I set out to do when I started my own school 11 years ago after my doctorate in Physical Oceanography. Independent thought and critical thinking possible for everyone regardless of education status."

This episode is about everything from roles, effects of social media, cancel culture, younger voting age, banning books. But most especially why there is a huge generation gap - the lack of compromise.
Episode 183: Navigating the COVID world with Processing Challenges
We need to stop making so many assumptions about what others can see, hear, read and process. We need to stop press pause and match people where they are rather than shouting at them aggressively. But as I once wrote - it's always easier to judge than it is to understand.
Episode 182: The scales of Literacy
I wrote a piece called 'Scales Of Literacy' on drnaosieoreilly dot org
What is being literate? How have our expectations changed? Why does this matter? Why do I have such fear around the American Presidental Election? Why do I have a vision for a dance piece to change the world? How will you feeling what others feel change everything?
