    Robert Baden-Powell Allegations & Truth

    Robert Baden-Powell Allegations & Truth

    Facts on the founder of Scouting. This discussion broadcast on Scouting Radio on Saturday 27th June 2020.
    Podcast Topics
    This week, we are featuring a guest episode, of sorts. This lengthy discussion was first broadcast on Scouting Radio at the end of June, 2020, and centered on the topic of Robert Baden-Powell (whom you may know as the founder of the Scouting movement) and several recent allegations made against his character and record by, among others, proponents of the Black Lives Matter movement. (You may recall that the statue of Baden-Powell that overlooks Poole Quay in Dorset was recently threatened with vandalism or demolition and was temporarily encased on a protective wooden structure until the danger to it faded.) This episode, apart from the introduction was produced and presented by Justin Dawson of Scouting Radio; he was joined in this discussion by several special guests:
    Colin Walker, Scout Historian, author of 12 books on Scouting including three on the Siege of Mafeking.
    Paul Moynihan, former archivist with The Scout Association (1993-2008), and author of An Official History of Scouting
    2 members of the Thane Rover Crew

    Returning to Scouting

    Returning to Scouting

    Scouts Canada have published guidelines for how, and when, in-person Scouting in Canada can resume.
    Podcast Topics
    Can you believe this is our 100th full-length episode?Ken and Colin follow up on the previous episode, in light of Scouts Canada’s recently-published framework for how in-person Scouting events (in Canada, at least) are to be carried out once they resume. Scouts Canada has decreed that no in-person programming shall take place over the summer; groups can hopefully expect to return to in-person activities in the fall. However, at least until the end of the year, no indoor activities will be allowed. Also discussed are these research findings, which Scouts Canada recently published after conducting surveys of parents and Scouters. And hey...we have a YouTube channel now! At present, you can expect to find full-length videos of each episode (starting with this one) there, and at some point there may be other videos posted there as well (e.g. when Scouter Ken gets around to carving staves with his daughters later this summer). Consider subscribing; the more subscribers we have, the sooner we can give ourselves a meaningful, custom YouTube URL, instead of youtube.com/channel/UCAsgJsCD1c_nIWmNEH-3DSg.
    Shout-Outs
    Firstly, an apology and overdue shout-out goes out to Scouter Carl, who wrote in to the podcast’s Facebook page a few weeks ago:
    Hi there, I'm a scout leader (and Group Scout leader) with a group in Stockport, England.Been listening to your podcast for a couple of months now (probably since the lockdown began I think, when I did a search for as many different podcasts as I could find about Scouting). We've been running weekly meetings using Zoom as well as making use of microsoft Teams and Sharepoint. Putting on virtual camps, making at home programmes and challenges for our members to use.I'm trying to come up with meeting ideas that we wouldn't normally be able to do in a face to face setting and so far I have planned to take the Scouts to Brazil and do a virtual tour of the Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo to earn our artist activity badge.We're going to have a competition to see who can dock the Crew Dragon capsule to the ISS in the shortest time without crashing.We're also trying to do some community outreach without going out.As part of our World challenge badge we need to try to make contact with Scouts from another country. Is there any way we could link up for what would be our evening (7:30pm) in England and I think about lunch (12:30 mountain daylight time) in Canada with Some leaders (and Scouts if possible) to talk about and look at uniforms, promise and law similarities and differences. Talk about some of the activities we do. That sort of thing.I'm wondering if you could help me out or pass the message on to anyone who could help with this. It would be brilliant to be able to communicate with Scouts from another part of the world and I think my Scouts would really get a lot out of it!
    If anyone would like to get in touch with Carl’s group, let us know via any form of contact listed below. As well, a shout-out is due for Scouter Gord, who wrote in about the soon-to-be-demolished Scout Hall in Airdrie, Alberta:
    Hey there love the program. I thought this would be some interesting scouting news for you. After almost 35 years the city of Airdrie is tearing down the Scout Hall. It is a sad time for us for sure but we are looking forward to a new future.
    We covered this story in a Scouting Five episode a couple weeks back. And, as always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
