AmeriNZ 373 – Busy-ness

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016Today’s episode is all about all the stuff I’ve done over the past couple weeks. Even I was surprised. While I have a lot left to do, I feel really good about how much I’ve accomplished.

AmeriNZ 372 – Talking in whispers

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016I begin this episode with an overview of New Zealand’s recent local government elections: What message do the voters send? What does it imply for the general election next year? I’ve done a mini-series of posts on my blog (links below) if you’re interested in more detail. The stuff I talk about in this episode leads on to a brief discussion of some fringe political activity.

Then I talk about some of the mini-projects I did recently.

AmeriNZ 371 – Make believe

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016This episode won’t be for everyone: In response to a voice message, I talk about my grief journey, including how it relates to something I talked about last time. However, I also talk about things I haven’t talked about very much (or at all), and some folk may find it confronting. Look after yourself and skip this episode if you need to.

I’ll be back at the end of the week with an episode about New Zealand’s recent local elections.

There’s a bit of static in parts of this episode, and I thought about re-recording, but decided to just go with it (it wasn’t as bad as one I DID re-record).

AmeriNZ 370 – Springing in the rain

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016This is a general sort of update today, starting with the inspiration for the title of this episode. After that, was last week as bad as I thought it might be?

Today I talk a bit about delays to my projects, one in particular, and why that particular one was so difficult for me to deal with.
