Episode 40: Erin Stewart, Bridging The Gap

Ω POWERBAND PODCAST

Welcome to Episode 40 of the Ω Powerband Podcast - a podcast dedicated to rock climbing in Aotearoa New Zealand. In this episode, I speak with climber, mother, designer and one half of castlehillbasin.co.nz, Erin Stewart. Erin is a born-and-bred Christchurchian but her path to climbing was not the usual one. By her own admission, Erin was not sporty or adventurous as a young person, preferring to read books and listen to music. She says her friends would have voted her as the least likely amongst them to become a rock climber. But that all changed after leaving school. As a young 'party girl', Erin found herself flatting with a couple, one of whom (Jamie Vinton-Boot) was a bad ass climber. And he had a lot of bad ass climber friends. And the rest is history. In our conversation, we cover Erin's journey to becoming a climber, from virtually no athletic background to a world of training, spreadsheets and redpoint tactics (#whatisgame).    We also discuss a few 'meaty' issues including: managing fear in climbing; parenting as a climber; and, perhaps the most topical topic, the place of women in New Zealand outdoor rock climbing (after Erin called out the Powerband Podcast for its notable interviewee gender imbalance). The discussion on women in New Zealand rock climbing flows from an article ('Mind The Gap') that Erin wrote for the New Zealand Alpine Journal, where she identified a large gap between the relative performance levels of leading male and female climbers in Aotearoa and explored some of the reasons why that might be. In our conversation, we pick up that thread and run with it and hopefully you find it thought-provoking. Enjoy!

54 | Living with ambiguous loss with Erin Stewart, author of 'The Missing Among Us'

James and Ashley Stay at Home

38,000 people go missing every year in Australia, yet only a small number of these cases garner public interest. In 'The Missing Among Us,' author Erin Stewart explores the issue of missing persons from a variety of perspectives, including the lack of police resources that leave families leading their own searches, the Stolen Generations, and cults. And what drew Erin to the topic is just as fascinating.  Erin talks to Ashley and James about how the ambiguity of living with chronic illness drove her interest in missing persons. 'The Missing Among Us' is 'about finding a space for those conversations about ambiguous circumstances in order to understand the complex issue of missing persons.’ She also describes her experiences with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and the research behind her book.  Erin Stewart is a Canberra-based freelance writer who has written for a range of Australian and international publications including Meanjin, Voiceworks, ABC Online, SBS Online, Daily Life, Overland, and many others. She has been an opinion columnist for The Age and made regular appearances on ABC Sydney Mornings to talk about books and the arts. An earlier version of this book was shortlisted for the Portobello Books Unpublished Manuscript Prize in the UK. She holds a PhD in non-fiction writing. You can buy a copy of 'The Missing Among Us' from your local bookshop, Booktopia or wherever else books are sold.  Books and authors discussed in this episode: The Myth of Closure by Pauline Boss; Brave New Humans by Sarah Dingle;  'What if there's no such thing as closure' by Meg Bernhard, New York Times; All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy; Missing Richard Simmons podcast  Ashley is teaching in-person at Writing NSW! Crafting Memoir: An Introduction.
