More Ghosts of East Berlin - Celeste Barber's Fulbright Adventure in the GDR (39)

East Germany Podcast - Radio GDR

This episode of Radio GDR, the East Germany podcast, lives up to Paul Harvey's famous expression, "and now you know the rest of the story." In episode 24, Shane Whaley interviewed Eric Friedman who, as a 10-year old boy in 1988, accompanied his mother Celeste Barber, a teacher in the English Department at Santa Barbara City College in California, and stepfather Frank McConnell on a Fulbright grant-sponsored tour as an English teacher at Humboldt University in East Berlin. Eric and Celeste co-authored the book Ghosts of East Berlin, a must-read personal account of their time behind the Berlin Wall. In this episode, you'll learn how Celeste and her family ended up in East Berlin, how she met her dear friend Adelheid, who lived with a view of the wall from her apartment, and how the family coped with living in what Celeste calls "No Mans Land." While she experienced challenges and even some scary moments with the Stasi, the GDR's secret police, Celeste nonetheless had some very human moments via her friend Adelheid, Frank's students and even a Russian woman on the street car. Not everything behind the Berlin Wall was as gray as expected.

Happy Mondaaaaay everybody!Today on the show, we bring you the remarkable Celeste Barber. We have no doubt you know precisely who Celeste is - she does have 10 million followers across Instagram and Facebook - but we’ll introduce her to you anyway. Celeste began her career as an actress, but over the last six years, has channeled her talent for making people think and laugh into a movement she calls ‘Challenge Accepted’. The premise is simple and brilliant; via her Instagram page, Celeste parodies the content Instagram has become synonymous for - exceedingly thin, obscenely famous women posing in unrealistic and sometimes downright bizarre ways. Celeste’s comedy has made her a local and international sensation: she’s graced the likes of In Style Magazine, penned a best-selling memoir, is the new face of MCoBeauty, and is practically taking over the world, one post at a time.In this chat, we wanted to hear about Celeste’s life before fame, the awkward stages of pursuing a career in the public eye, her relationship with rejection and failure, and what it’s like to build a business off the back of being yourself.For more from Celeste, follow her on Instagram at @celestebarber and check out her podcast, Celeste and Her Best.

The Importance of Trust & the Celeste Barber Fundraising Controversy

Change the World

There is one issue dominating the media right now in the charity space and it’s the Celeste Barber Facebook fundraiser and the recent court ruling about the funds disbursement. This could be a watershed moment for our sector and for Facebook fundraising. Recently the NSW Supreme Court handed down its findings regarding comedian Celeste Barber’s Facebook fundraiser, ruling the $51million collected is unable to be dispersed across State and Territory borders or organisations. More than 1.3 million people gave to the fundraiser making it the biggest single fundraiser in Facebook’s history worldwide. The fundraiser was aimed at assisting communities, service providers and volunteers affected by the catastrophic fires that tore through the country’s eastern states. The majority of supporters trusted the money they gave could be split and given out as needed. Along with money, supporters handed over their hope and trust. Many have since commented they feel let down and ripped off. Others have loudly expressed their distrust of social media fundraisers, celebrities, charities and the legal system. These people say they won’t use social media as a platform to raise money. But worse, they won’t give to charity again. Alecia takes a look at the conversations are happening on social media, the risk to the sector,  the importance of building trust, Facebook fundraisers and how they work and shares the 5 things you can do as a cause organisation to build trust.

Celeste Barber on fame and the absurdity of social media


Comedian Celeste Barber has 6.8 million followers on Instagram thanks to her iconic #celestechallengeaccepted photo series. But when she’s not whipping up very funny takes on sexy celebrity photos, she’s also a writer, actor, mom, and outspoken feminist. And, well, if that’s not enough, the Australian comedian just broke the Facebook fundraising record, raising $32 million for Australian wildlife relief with donations from 1.2 million people globally. She wears a lot of hats, but it’s her refreshing openness about everything from body image to fleeting fame that makes us super fans. Celeste joins Refinery29 global editor-in-chief Christene Barberich  on the latest installment of UnStyled to talk motherhood, #MeToo, and her highly relatable brand of funny.
