Tim Wilson is one of the godfathers of educational podcasting. He was doing this 15 years ago. I’ve known Tim for this long and yet it’s not until recently that he has become a competitive archer. I find it fascinating when people take up new passions later on in life and it certainly is a wonderful example of the somewhat tired phrase of “lifelong learner” Tim shares some really great perspectives on goal setting around this new passion and along with his new coaching lens provides implications for everyone.
So excited that this is the premiere episode. Andi Arnold aka Smack Skellington talks about her journey into roller derby, the power of community and diversity. What a joy to spend time with this wonderful teacher from Idaho.
Time to fire up the old podcast machine. I’m really excited about this series which will feature conversations with educators about anything except education. Well, that’s not entirely true but what this isn’t is a dive into education but into the people who lead really interesting lives outside of education. Gary Stager says, “the best thing you can do for children is to be an interesting adult. That’s what I’m looking for: interesting adults. You’ll meet educators who are into cooking, roller derby, boy bands, backyard curling and remote living just as a start. Subscribe to your favourite feed. Enjoy.
