Practicing Connection in a Complex World podcast launches July 1!

 

This new podcast, β€œPracticing Connection in a Complex World,” was created to help you explore and adopt relationship-building practices that will help you, your family, and your community improve your resilience in a rapidly changing world. The monthly podcast, a production of the Military Families Learning Network, is available now on Apple Podcast and Google Podcasts. Learn more about the "Practicing Connection in a Complex World" at https://militaryfamilieslearni...racticingconnection/

In the first episode, hosts Jessica Beckendorf (UW-Madison Extension) and Bob Bertsch (NDSU Extension) explore the ideas and practices related to transformational relationships. What makes a relationship transformational? How is it different than other relationships? What can we do to make our relationships more transformational? Jessica and Bob address those questions and more through:

  • A discussion of their individual reflections on transformational relationships, recorded in audio journals
  • A conversation with Ellie (Anderson) Sheldon  focused on learning more about transformational leadership and the actions that can lead to it
  • A commitment to practice something that they learned from this episode

I love this approach. Another podcast that's taking a really collaborative approach is Water Talk out of University of California Ag & Natural Resources. They're using the recording sessions to create community and a sense of audience (this happens mid-week), and then dropping the actual podcast on Friday. It's been an incredibly inclusive process: the team publicizes the recording on social media, including Twitter, and then shares the Zoom link via email. Again: so looking forward to watching your effort grow!!!

What a great idea! I will look it up - their process sounds right up our alley - thanks for sharing!

Thanks @Rose Hayden-Smith - the mini-episode gives an overview of our intentions, and as a teaser episode 2 will discuss collaboration πŸ™‚ Feedback is very welcome - we are taking a learning, growing, and collaborative approach and hope to eventually grow a community of people that will hopefully see themselves as co-creators of this podcast. πŸ™‚
