Thankful

Hey guys

I want to share with you a big reason why The I’ve Been Wrong Before Podcast got off the ground.

Anjie Furian

Seriously that’s the big reason right there.  I got everything together for the podcast and got my first couple of interviews recorded. But the editing is when I ran into issues that I had no familiarity with.  My wonderful wife asked if she could help.  I was leery.  Not because I didn’t think she could do it but because I didn’t want to rope her into something that I viewed as a long term project and that I wanted to do regularly.  I didn’t think it would be fair of me to ask for help and then expect her to just always edit every episode.  I had done the work of setting up and planning to do this I’d told her what I was doing but I was clear that she didn’t have to participate.

But when I ran into trouble, she was right there knowing what she was signing up for and willing to come along side me an join the podcast as sound engineer.

I am thankful for her.

Love you babe!

Episode 10: The Public is Wrong about Paganism With Lea Rush and Theo Williams

Episode: 10

Episode Title: The Public is Wrong about Paganism

Guests: Lea Rush and Theo Williams

Host: Erin Furian

Podcast Website: wrongbefore.com

OMG we made it to Episode 10!

This week’s episode two of my favorite people agreed to be on the podcast.  I’ve known Lea for years and Theo has been a delightful addition to my life as her partner.

Lea and Theo have been involved with the pagan Community in the pacific northwest for over thirty years. Lea has been a volunteer and event organizer for many wiccan and science fiction conventions. Theo has been a Wiccan priest for many years.  Together they help me dispel some of the various myths that are wrong about what it means to be pagan.

Here is the link to The Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Wicca that is mentioned in the episode: atcwicca.org

And links to the Church of Satan churchofsatan.com and the Satanic Temple thesatanictemple.com which neither Lea or Theo are part of but that some people mistake wiccan for.

Episode 9 What happens in the brain when we are wrong? With Wendy S Hubbard

Episode: 9 What happens in the brain when we are wrong?

Guest: Wendy S. Hubbard

Show Website:  www.wrongbefore.com

This is more of a meta episode rather than a direct conversation about being wrong.  One of the advantages of being friends with someone for 20 years is the ability to impose on that friendship on occasion.  Wendy is on her third career as a nontraditional student at Adler University.  She is currently working on her doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I decided to pick her brain on about what happens inside the mind when someone is wrong.

We discuss what the brain is and why it’s so hard for people to accept being wrong.   Where that resistance comes from.

Evidently there are psychological and social reason we are so against being wrong!  Who knew!

Also I realized I was pretty bad about explaining some of the terms referenced in this episode so here is  list of most of them I think

Confirmation bias

CBT as in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

ACT is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Core Beliefs – woofta the internet has a lot of interpretations of what Core Beliefs are but in our conversation, they are things you believe that your actions flow out of

Adler University School of Psychology

Alfred Adler

Freud

Adlerian Theory

Gender roles

Aircraft Jacks – look a picture!

 

 

 

 

 

Prepper p.s. I’m much less a survivalist and much more a lets not die while camping please kind of prepper.  Also I know where my flashlight is in case of power outage.

Psychoanalysis – see Freud

Dream interpretation – same as above

Wendy throws these three dudes out there pretty quick; Erik Erickson, Jean Piaget, LS Vygotsky.  All of them are big muckty mucks in the field of psychology with different takes on how our minds work.  Wikipedia is your friend.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs There is a load of info out there on this and frankly understanding it can free you up to understanding somethings about the why of why you do some things.  Its handy to have in your brain as a reference.

Brenè Brown ok this chick is worth some time exploring her therories.  Just be warned I think she’s wordy and I’m kinda wordy myself

Episode 8 It’s called Theater darling! With Margaret Gorman

Episode 8

It’s Called Theater Darling

Guest: Margaret Gorman

With Special appearance by Nevil Shortbottom, Pug extraordinaire

When my son stated he would be joining the theater program at school I steeled myself for bad renditions of a Charlie Brown Christmas or Romeo and Juliet .  What I found was well run show with actors intent on providing the best performance they could,  professional choreography, sound and lights happening right on que and at the heart of it all, Margaret Gorman.

The Evergreen High School Theater director is the vibrant beating heart of this program. Her passion for the students a key factor in sharing her years of knowledge and skill with them to inspire them to achieve some truly incredible work.

Margaret  graduated from Hudson’s Bat High School in 1999 then proceeded to get a BA in French literature from Whitman College in 2004.  She did her Theater post-bac work at Portland State University through 2009 and received her MAT with endorsements  in theater and French through Willamette University in 2011

She’s taught at North Salem High School, Hazelbrook Middle School, Tualatin High School, and The Ballroom Dance Company.  She started teaching at Evergreen High School in 2015, with additional training through:
The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford-Upon-Avon in 2017 and the Broadway Teachers Workshop, New York City in 2018

Here is a list of the plays she’s directed:
The Wizard of Oz
Greek Tragedy
Our Town
Romeo & Juliet
A collection of fractured fairy tales
Annie (two different productions)
Beauty and the Beast
The Three Musketeers
Oklahoma
Pride & Prejudice
Guys & Dolls
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Mary Poppins
Robin Hood
Wendy & Peter Pan

Margaret is a vibrant dynamo of a person who is force for good in the lives of the students she teaches.

Her Pug, Nevill Shortbottom, heard in this episode as the snore at about the midpoint, is also a student favorite and recently played Sandy in the EHS production of Annie.
