Hello out there in the ether,
This first episode is really nothing more than taking the opportunity to say hi, hello, howdy and how do you do. The whole concept of the podcast and the website that this is an extension of is to develop a voice, that voice being mine at the moment, but definitely others as well in the future as more writers are brought on board to contribute to the site.
So, proper introductions…. aside, from being the primary host here, I’ve been working for the last 10 years as a professional educator, which is just a fancy way of saying public school teacher, but I am also a writer, a content creator who makes videos for a youtube channel called GeekBuilders and I am one of the 4 hosts of the Making Geeks Podcast.
So voice. During youth, we spend a lot of time, just wanting to be heard, mainly as a desire for attention. But age and experience provides a different perspective and need to be heard. Having lived through a good 4 decades, I finally feel like I have something worthy to share. So my desire is to be heard, but that desire is a result of wanting to tell stories, to entertain, and hopefully to offer a few nuggets of wisdom or insight based on my own struggles and observations of this wonderful world around us.
So, I’m hoping that you’ll bare with me as i find my way through these thoughts, stories, and explorations while I look for my voice, I really have no idea what it looks like.
