Scientist, author, TV presenter, teacher, musician, and visual artist Liz Lee Heinecke, Kitchen Pantry Scientist, stops by for a visit. Liz's passion for science and education has taken her on many inspiring adventures. We discuss the importance of finding your niche, the value of collaboration, and what it means to be a role model.
Author, speaker, theologian, and pastor Clint Schnekloth returns for a second appearance on our podcast! We discuss the impact of Clint's first book, boundary-pushing in the arts, and the problem of leaders who don't want to be too interesting. Also: Humans always fall in love with robots.
Author and educator Roseanne Cheng and the Rundmans are neighbors, and they meet for the first time live on the podcast! She writes young adult novels, and helps schools and parents to teach literature to kids. Her organized and practical approach to a creative life is inspiring! Plus she shares her favorite word "ostensibly," and Jonathan shares his least favorite word "great."
Poet (and Jonathan's cousin!) Beth Roberts is our first family-member podcast guest! We discuss hyperbole, poetic license, the raising of personal artistic standards, and Jonathan's struggle to balance artistic passion with the paranoia over inward wankery. Plus, Beth reads to us two poems: the new "Sober," and "Learning to Spell" from her 2001 book BRIEF MORAL HISTORY IN BLUE.
