Phil Micallef, Englishman in Prague, speaks to Sean Reardon, a Prague-based comedian from the great state of New Jersey, USA. Sean is American through birth, Irish through descent, Mexican through marriage, Czech through current residency, and international through…well, everything else we’ve just mentioned. He discussed with Phil, amongst other things, the similarities between New Jersey and Phil’s English home county of Essex, New Jersey’s strong international flavour, what Europeans think of Americans, what it was like being an American living in Mexico at the same that Trump got elected, and why us European folk should all take it easy and stop slagging off the many American folk who don’t have passports (it was a point extremely well-made!). Listen right to the end for a special musical treat that perfectly fuses New Jersey with Essex.

Professor Sean Reardon, a Stanford researcher, was the keynote speaker for our annual Make It Your Business Luncheon. Reardon received his doctorate from Harvard and has spent his career researching how to ensure every child is able to obtain the best education. In his keynote address, he says statistics indicate some Oregon school districts are outperforming other school districts in similar socioeconomic areas but: "That opportunity is not equally shared by race or by socioeconomic backgrounds. That says we have a lot of work to do as a society about how we create broader opportunity." He says gaps in educational opportunity start very early, and groups like Children's Institute, that take a holistic look at the social safety net, have the best chance of changing the trajectory of young people.
