GBA 340 Graham Jones
Getting Better Acquainted

In GBA 340 we get better acquainted with Graham. He talks about cutting hair at Open Barbers, his new book The Shock Doctrine of the Left and developing London Radical Mindfulness. Which in some ways are all linked together in the deeper personal experiences, concepts and politics that thread the conversation together: change, complex systems, permeability, power, mental health, accessibility, theory, practice, healing, care, fluidity, left wing political tactics, and so much more.

GBA Replayed - GBA 19 And 43 Louise
Getting Better Acquainted

It's another episode of GBA Replayed which showcases some of the conversations recorded in the early years of Getting Better Acquainted. ------------ In GBA 19 and GBA 43 we get better acquainted with Louise. We compare childhoods and confidence levels and talk about the death of Louise's stepdad and how his life and death have influenced her. We move out from there into a broader conversation about the death of people you love. Which makes it all sound very heavy, but there is plenty of light and warmth in this conversation.

GBA Replayed - GBA 74 Mervyn
Getting Better Acquainted

It's another episode of GBA Replayed which showcases some of the conversations recorded in the early years of Getting Better Acquainted. ------------ In GBA 74 we get better acquainted with Mervyn who is still technically my Step Dad. He talks about growing up in Belfast during The Troubles, working in factories, teaching Physics in Dubai, teaching English in China, living in a tent on a roundabout and lots more. This was a complicated conversation for me, for many reasons, and it moves from personal history to social and political analysis and back. A lot of ground is covered. It is also the first podcast I've recorded while drinking Guinness. Mervyn doesn't plugs anything, but I mention a history of Genghis Kahn that I've been listening to. That history is made by the excellent podcaster Dan Carlin as part of his Hardcore History show: http://www.dancarlin.com/disp.php/hharchive/Show-43---Wrath-of-the-Khans-I/Mongols-Genghis-Chingis http://www.dancarlin.com/disp.php/hharchive/Show-44---Wrath-of-the-Khans-II/Mongols-Genghis-Chingis I plug: Mansplaining Masculinity: The Book https://unbound.com/books/mansplaining-masculinity/ What About the Men?

In GBA 334 we get even better acquainted with Donna. We reflect on and update the first conversation we had for GBA which was recorded in 2012 when we both had very different understandings of ourselves and the world around us. We compare notes on therapy and talk about some of the labels we now have to describe our experiences, in Donna's case dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and OCD, in my case depression and anxiety. Donna talks about her new job advocating for special needs within a school, and how advocating for other people's needs has helped her understand her own, and vice versa. We talk about the unique job that we both used to do working with the under 5's on behalf of the library service and catch up on what has been happening in the 4 years since we last saw each other.
