Here & (T)here Podcast S03E15 - The Forgotten Children of Slovakia - May 26, 2017

May 30, 2017

Raising #kids is tough work. I know, because I'm currently co-raising two delightful teen-aged monsters. Raising kids across cultures is even tougher work. This too I know, because I've listened carefully to Global Worker families share openly about raising their third-culture kids and #teens for the past 8 years. Sitting at my kitchen table a few weeks ago, I had the privilege of interrogating the Forgotten Armitage Children of #Slovakia about Global Worker kid life and growing up between two worlds. Like all good pods with kids, you'll love the honesty, hilarity, maturity and calamity that ensues on the latest edition of the Here and (T)here Podcast. One thing you'll agree on is that Sheldon and Anna are doing a fantastic job as GW #parents and raising their kids in a beautiful culturally blended family destined to change the world. Grab a juice bar lady drink and have a listen! 🎙️🤦🤷💁🍹🇸🇰😂🙌 #TCK #HnTPodcast

Here & (T)here Podcast S03E14 - The Dark Side of Missions? - May 19, 2017

May 24, 2017

Recently we came across an interesting article about missionary burnout. It seems to be a theme on the past few podcasts but this article generated a lot of reaction and dialogue between global workers. So, being the relevant dudes that we are, we decided to chip in our two cents and examine hot topics like burnout, stress and the sacred cow itself...sabbaticals.

Are global workers soft? Does a Wall Street investment banker have the same levels of stress as a global worker in Timbuktu? Should sabbaticals be available to all or only those on the 76th level of the missional org chart?

Listen to Matt and Shel spare with each other, challenge each other and ultimately love each other on the latest episode.

Here & (T)here Podcast S03E13 - Do Missionaries Care About Missionary Care? - May 12, 2017

May 17, 2017

Ah, Missionary Care. Probably the single most debated issue I have discussed with Global Workers over the years. Some GWs need a little, others, a lot. Many missionaries feel well supported by their regional leadership and/or the home team, and some wonder if anyone knows they're still out there! While Melissa Williams (- the Melissa + a Scott) was hanging out at the Missionary Guest House for a couple of days a few weeks ago, we chatted about this topic, and Scott shared some creative "care" ideas with me. The opinions expressed by Scott and myself in this podcast are those of a GW and former Missionary Care Guy and do not necessarily reflect your opinion or the official policy or position of any sending agency of the #PAOC. There, we disclaimed it, now you can safely listen to it! #missionarycare #membercare #haveyoursay #HnTpodcast

Here & (T)here Podcast S03E12 - On The Road! - May 4, 2017

May 4, 2017

Here & (T)here is getting out of the studio and taking this show on the ROAD! Join us (Anna and Sheldon) as we embark on the adventure that is ITINERATION. We start in Vancouver, head to Osoyoos, go up to Trail, stop in Banff, go to Edmonton and somewhere along the line end up with a $350 speeding ticket. Along the way we sample new cuisine, discover outdoor hot tubs, see the Rockies, lay some smack down on Alberta highways, talk to the newest member of the Eurasia Lead Team, Cal Anthony, and see so much more...

This podcast is as epic as the trip we went on...and we know it one that most Global Workers can identify with. Thankfully It's not as long as a Canadian highway but it might be just long enough for your next commute to where it is you are global working.
