The Problem We All Live With

Surprise! Our podcast is back by popular demand. This episode is a BIG one, probably best for upper primary school students. Miss Thea’s awesome class talk about racism, respect, empathy and curiosity. During the Meet The Experts section we hear from a bunch of truly wonderful kids from Gawura School, a Kindergarten to Year 6 school for local Aborignal and Torres Strait Islander children located in Sydney’s CBD. They share some interesting facts about their culture, as well as some words from their various language groups and they also read a powerful dreamtime story about listening and talking less. We thank and have huge respect for all the people having brave, awkward and important conversations with their children and communities. This episode was inspired by the words of Austin Channing Brown about being a better human and the joyful attitudes of the Gawura School kids.

The Perfect Antidote

In this final episode your 12 year old hosts of the show explore the connection between Australia’s deadliest spider and the strength of hope. We hear the true and remarkable story of holocaust survivor, Eddie Jaku, who at nearly 100 years of age spreads kindness, love and compassion wherever he goes. (Please note - Eddie’s story involves the death of Eddie’s parents and his beloved dog. It could be sensitive content for some listeners.) This episode was specially commissioned by Woollahra Public School as a beautiful response to boost resilience, joy and hope. Thank you to WPS and to our global community for supporting this podcast.
