Nevertheless not only shows what needs to change in the education system but they also celebrate people who are actively working to bring about those changes. The facts are sometimes sobering but the stories of activists and women who are working to change those facts brings me so much hope and challenges me to go out and do the same. I look forward to the episodes every week 🤗

Rank #4: Straight Roads Don't Make Skillful Drivers

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode we hear one story from one person, Kate Edwards. Kate tells the story of a day when her life changed forever. On a train heading to London, at just 23 weeks and 5 days pregnant, Kate went into labour. What follows is her story of that day.

It's a story about efficacy in medicine and what can be learned and applied in the field of education and beyond. It's about the importance of having diverse teams and the power of focusing on outcomes. And it's about what can be achieved when using evidence to deliver those outcomes. 

It also tells another tale. It's the story of someone who at the time felt they had personally and physically failed - and what they went on to do next.

We just want to give listeners a little heads up. There are moments in this story that some people might find upsetting.

Rank #5: Imagination - Where Science Meets Art

Podcast cover
Read more
For many young people who are making decisions about their future, science and art have always been seen as opposites. It's a choice between one or the other. Rarely both. But as Albert Einstein once said "The greatest scientists are artists as well." Innovators are able to imagine the unimaginable thanks to the marriage of science and art. 

In this episode we examine the role of science and art in imagination and education, and talk to seven remarkable women who are bridging the divide. From a neuroscience professor using stand-up comedy to help people understand the brain, to a Hollywood actress and scientist who combines both disciplines in all of her work.

Rank #6: Finding Genius

Podcast cover
Read more
When it comes to invention and innovation it's important that ideas from a diverse set of people get made. Ideas can come from anyone. But bringing ideas to life rarely happens by lone inventors. They are the result of teams and networks.

What happens if you have no access to networks? No entrepreneurs to fund your startup, or alumni to lend a hand? Think of the great innovations that never happen. How many amazing innovations have been lost simply because no-one listened?

In this episode, we discuss lost potential, and how we identify and nurture talent in young people when the odds are stacked against them.

Rank #8: When Good Intentions Aren't Enough

Podcast cover
Read more
Good intent is nice, and goes a long way sometimes — but if the result of good intentions is a bad outcome, then whatever the intent, it’s kind of irrelevant. Unfortunately there are plenty of examples of good intentions paired with bad outcomes.

In this episode we look at a failed product that excited everyone — except the people who had to use it. We chat to women who are working closely with users and communities and analysing data to ensure their tech solutions solve real problems. And we discuss the difference between forcing change, and encouraging it; between assuming you know what people need and asking them in advance.
