This week's guest is Genevieve Lang, a fellow mum who also sends her children to a Montessori program here in Australia. Now, this was one of those school situations when you realize that amongst us parents, we are still interesting adults with extraordinary life experiences. And it was during the recent lockdown that I had the opportunity to hear her play the harp for us all during our very own harp half hour. What began as an intimate and very personal performance over Zoom turned out to be an opportunity for me to follow my curiosity and ask Genevieve to be a guest on this podcast. I have to say, I needed to muster my courage to make this ask. And this is the kind of bravery that I want to teach you too as a coach. It's the type of courage to share your talent with a new crowd or to reach out to a fellow parent and ask them how they decided on their career. It's the kind of bravery that we all need to live more enriching lives and to ultimately find it within ourselves to finally pursue our purpose right now, even in the midst of messy and uncertain times. It's also the courage that I feature front and center in my free download that you can find on my website on www.melissallarena.com/courage. Have you yet grabbed your own copy of my Courage Makerspace Playbook? In this playbook, you'll have an opportunity to grow and test your own courage muscles. See where they are today and where they can use some strengthening so that you can get more out of your life. Pick any one of my 7 specific exercises and see where you rise up versus fall a bit apart. We all have our own sore spots when it comes to being courageous. So be sure to grab your own free Courage Makerspace Playbook right now. In this episode, we cover how some of our best and most intimate memories come out of ordinary moments including when she once played her harp in a carpark. She also shares her take on courage and the kind it took for her to hold back a bit in her own artistry to ensure the audience got what they needed (i.e. moment of silence to heal in some cases). We discuss where the women in music are and have been, as well as some orchestra best hiring practices that are also applicable to business that you may want to implement yourself. About Genevieve Lang Genevieve Lang has performed regularly as a section and guest principal harpist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. She has also enjoyed a long association with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Genevieve is a founding member of SHE (Seven Harp Ensemble), a group directed by harpist Alice Giles, which is active in commissioning and performing new Australian music. As a soloist she has performed with the Tasmanian, West Australian and New Zealand Symphony Orchestras. Genevieve has presented courses in chamber music appreciation at the University of Sydney's Centre for Continuing Education and tutored the Australian Youth Orchestra's music journalism course, Words About Music. She has undertaken traineeships in artistic administration and music presentation, which gave her the opportunity to work with a number of Australian orchestras and with ABC Radio. Since then, she has worked with Gondwana Choirs, the Australian Youth Orchestra, and Pinchgut Opera. Genevieve regularly delivers pre-concert talks for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and has edited various publications for the SSO for the last 10 years. Amidst all that, she's still a very busy harpist! Share this conversation with anyone who enjoys classical music, who might really miss the arts, someone who is also interested and curious about what it actually takes to become a harpist and truly perform on the world's various stages. Enjoy this conversation today! Highlights Memories: Memories are made in the ordinary moments and the sensations that you experience in your body if you have that level of awareness of rising joy or catching it on the wing, and retaining it. Mastery: Mastering any skill, art or performance exists in the mind of letting go of aiming for perfection and allowing what happens and allowing for the audience to receive it in a very different way to how you might perceive it. Audacity: You have to learn how to channel what is the negative and nervous energy into a positive one and an excitement. It's very much a mental game. Healing: Harp therapy has massive applications from both ends of life – from neonatal tiny little tots in the neonatal ICU right through to end of life, palliative care, and everything in between. Simplicity: To play the harp therapeutically in a medical setting or a respite setting, you have to do very little plucking of the strings. In fact, the medicine is in the spaces between. The resonance of the harp, the way it sounds, and the way it lingers in your body, mind, and your ears is where the therapy is to be found. Simple music is what does the trick. Courage: As a classically-trained performer where she played music with deep complexity, Genevieve felt very uncomfortable with leaving so much space. And it took so much courage for her to hold back and learn to become comfortable with silence. Pattern: Math and music have a correlation in terms of patterns because we see patterns in music all the time and there are math patterns in nature and science. Curiosity: Feeling the need to diversify a little bit away from purely performance, Genevieve took a music journalism course. Is there another way to bring your talents to the world? Explore your alternatives! Creativity: For Genevieve, the act of crafting a narrative and selecting the words of telling the story from start to finish was more creative than anything she has done on the harp for 10 years. An orchestra is an act of performance, but writing words and composing words was a creative art. Ensemble: SHE is a beautiful acronym for Seven Harp Ensemble, that Genevieve is a part of. The individual makeup of the group changes depending on people's availability. History of women in music: Women in music are everywhere. But for a really long time, they've been silenced by societal norms. For example, Clara Schumann had a 61-year career as a concert pianist. Hiring: Women in orchestras started to grow, even outnumbering men. And that's because the screening process has changed where they've gotten rid of gender bias. Diversity: Businesses have adopted the orchestral model in a lot of places. They saw this diversity emerging from this new process of screened auditions. Brain Integration: Music, particularly for a developing mind, is an incredible full brain workout. Emotions: How music elicits emotions is a mystery Genevieve wants to cherish and doesn't want to understand otherwise it will remove a layer of that wonder of being human.

There's a lot of anger and frustration in the far-west of New South Wales. And Wilcannia, 11 hours west of Sydney and 8 hours north-east of Adelaide, is ground zero. The tiny outback town, with a predominantly Indigenous population, is facing what governments had been telling us they'd been working around-the-clock to prevent: a cluster of COVID-19 among some of its most vulnerable inhabitants. So how did this happen? Today on The Signal, ABC Radio reporter Carly Williams talks us through what's become Australia's single worst outbreak of the Delta variant so far.

"At its core, this study emphasises that our bodies are important. Anything that gets you out of your head and creating an in-the-moment kind of awareness is a powerful and useful thing. Physical awareness is an extra option and options have value."Scientific research, especially in the psychological sciences, is rarely linear. There is no definitive answer and, as with most things, context is important. This is evident in the conversations that have sparked around 'Power Posing' or the idea that body positions can change the way you think and feel.My guest today's guest is Tom Loncar, executive coach, writer, researcher on leadership psychology and mindset and founder of “Grow Gravitas." In a recent article for the British Psychological Society Tom examined power posing's 10-year journey and the role that it has played in social science research. It's a great article about a fascinating topic - whether small postural adjustment make us feel more powerful when facing stressful situations. But while power posing is interesting in its own right, it has an even more fascinating back story that sees it embroiled in psychology's replication crisis'.Listen in to hear Tom and I geek out about:Power posing: What it is and why it took the world by storm.Why there is rarely a 'silver bullet' for behaviour change.How Tom got started in his in-depth research by diving down rabbit holes.A short but long history of embodiment or 'embodied cognition' and how our bodies influence our emotions.The role Power Posing played in behavioural science's 'replication crisis'.Where the dialogue is now for 'power posing' and where it might take us next.About our guest:In addition to his work as an executive coach and researcher, Tom is also a regular contributing writer on leadership for the Australian Financial Review and BOSS Magazine. His articles have covered a wide variety of topics examining leadership growth and the often unseen barriers that can get in the way of doing what matters.Where to find Tom:Twitter - https://twitter.com/TomLoncarLinkedIn - https://linkedin.com/in/tloncarResources mentioned in this episode:A Decade of ‘Power Posing': Where Do We Stand? by Tom LoncarDoes "Power Posing" really work?

Why the Fairness Doctrine is a bad idea. Trump Wanted His Justice Department to Stop ‘SNL' From Teasing Him. The worst airline ever just got worser, and yes, that should be a word says Chip! ABC Radio's correspondent Alex Stone joins Chip to discuss new COVID related airline surcharges announced by a major discount carrier. Frontier Airlines announced today that they are going to begin charging customers an add-on surcharge for ‘COVID recovery'. They say they are charging you money on top of your fare to cover cleaning. And they say they charge the fee because they're buying personal protective equipment for employees: "The COVID Recovery Charge offsets added costs to Frontier due to implementing Covid-19 related measures, such as increased sanitation and cleaning onboard the aircraft and in the airport, shields at the ticket counters and gate areas, and personal protective equipment for employees." To be clear: this is a surcharge, not a fee. A fee, by law, has to be optional so there's a way to avoid it. That's why Frontier and some others sell tickets for less at the airport, so they can legally impose an ‘online booking fee'. Surcharges are quoted as part of full price, so they're not likely actually charging more money for tickets. But no matter how you look at it, in charging extra for on board cleaning, is Frontier saying that clean planes aren't part of their basic product? https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/22/right-to-disconnect-could-become-the-norm-in-europe.html See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Have you ever watched a movie or TV show that was meant to be for adults only? Do you wish you hadn't seen it, or are the rules about what kids can and can't watch unfair? Today's BITE: Is it okay to read books or watch movies that people say are too old for you?
Short & Curly wants you to know all about a cool American science podcast called, Brains On. Each episode is about a different topic and the one we have chosen for you is close to our hearts (or at least, our hands). It's all about smartphones.
Is it OK to do something that you were told not to do and then never tell anybody? In this episode we tackle that thorny question from 10-year-old Finn from Seattle. We'll also wrestle with the question, "Why do people make really bad choices and want other people's lives to be harder?" Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript We're tackling some ethical dilemmas in this episode and we're letting kids give the answers! We also get a response from ABC Radio's Short & Curly, a podcast devoted to ethics for kids. Here's how some of our young listeners answer the question about whether it's ever okay to break a rule and lying about it: "No, because it usually just means you get in trouble." - Juniper "I think so. If you're protecting somebody or keeping a surprise." - Camille "It depends who told you. Like if your parents told you, then you shouldn't do it. Or if you do it, you should tell them you did it. But if it's like a mean person you met on the street it's ok. And it depends what it is. Because if it's a bad question, you shouldn't do it either way if it's a bad thing. If it's a good deed you should do it. And if you did that, why wouldn't you tell anyone?" -Sylvie "No, not really. If you don't tell anyone about it. It's mostly the doing it and then not telling anybody about it. Mostly what isn't the good thing about it. It's a little bit worse, if you don't tell someone you might get a feeling where you feel kind of embarrassed. And you don't tell anybody and it just sticks with you the rest of your life." - Piper
Here's a little thought experiment: if you found out the world was going to end next week, would the rules about right and wrong change? If there was no tomorrow would it be okay to steal something you really wanted, or punch someone who had been bullying you? Let's see how Molly and Carl deal with a little thing called… the end of the world. Brains Trust: Somerset College in Queensland — Ethan, Saeesha, Spencer, Maddi, John, and Harry.
