absolutely global
We start by going absolutely global as the Living Your Ideal Global Life Summit, which ran for the first time last January, is about to happen again. I will let Sabrina Ziegler one of the main organisers, tell us what we can expect this year. Don’t forget that it is free to participate, you can sign up at the website  and the dates are from 26 to 30 January. If we’re lucky we may be bringing you a few highlights from the summit in a future show.

absolutely stereotypical
This show is a little different as most of it is given over to a discussion I had with a group of students from the University of Dubuque in Iowa on the topic of stereotypes. Their teacher, Franklin Yartey contacted us and we arranged to meet via Skype. We had just run a two week series of links about stereotypes on our Facebook page so many of the issues were fresh in my mind and it was great to have all these different perspectives. Let’s go absolutely stereotypical and eavesdrop on a discussion I had with Franklin Yartey’s class on the topic of stereotypes. Just a bit of harmless fun or can stereotypical thinking really affect the course of people’s lives? I started by asking if anybody in the class had ever been stereotyped. Skype. Thanks to Nicholas Dolson, Austin Healey, Sydney Temperly, Cody J. Shipp, Rika Thibodeaux, Guillermo Garcia, Chris Gansen, Adrian Collier, Brittany Chenelia, Bekka Jacobs and all the other members of the class. Thanks to Franklin Yartey who started the whole thing off and who helped out with a great deal of technical support.

See below for a very eloquent and passionate overview of the issue.

So, don’t forget to like us on Facebook and stay tuned!

The next show will be coming to you from Germany with Laurent Borgmann on February 6th so until then, stay tuned!

The host of this show is: Anne Fox
