The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted almost every aspect of our lives in 2020. Arguably one of the most affected groups in society has been our children and young people whose education has been disrupted in unprecedented ways.

In this episode we speak to Glenda Walsh, Head of Early Years at Stranmillis University College, Belfast about the impact that lockdown had, and continues to have, on children, young people and their parents in Northern Ireland.

We also discussed more generally our approach to Education in Northern Ireland and how parents can help our children strike the right balance between academic achievement and wellbeing.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
