Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You'll recognize yourself in these true-life stories of adversity, challenge, fear, discovery, adventure, expression, and more from women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference their journeys have made. I'm your host, Diane Wyzga.  Welcome back to Part 2 of the podcast interview with my guest, Sue Heatherington, Quiet Disruptor, author of the book Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting, and a catalyst for thinking pioneers, innovators and change-makers who joined us from her small valley in Swansea, Wales. We were talking about quiet disruptors when I asked Sue to assume you might have to work with or encounter someone who is not so agreeable to this notion of disrupting quietly; how would you suggest working with folks like that to get them to see the necessity of hopeful, quiet change? Let's hear what she has to say about this and so much more on creating change without shouting.Minutes 37:010:00 to 2:00      Intro2:00 to 4:15       Experience Over TellingQuestion: Let's assume you might have to work with or encounter someone who is not so agreeable to this notion of disrupting quietly, how would you suggest working with folks like that to get them to see the necessity of hopeful, quiet change?We cannot tell anyoneIf someone has a clear view about how change happens, telling them won't work because they won't listen to the idea that there's another wayGive them the experience of itWhen Sue is working with people: truly listening and enabling them to feel heardSue practices Killer Questions in her coaching practiceSue believes we enable others to experience what's there4:15 to 15:35       The Quiet Disruptors BlogQuestion: One of the ways I've noticed you doing that (enabling to experience) is your blog. Would you tell us a little bit more about that.2018 was the early exploration and growth of Quiet DisruptionNot a simple formula but letting it breathe and growSue realized she needed to begin writing  The Manifesto was writtenSue committed on 9th September 2018 and wrote daily - has not stopped since that daySue's intention: (1) Only write what she knew was real and in the present; and, (2) being prepared to peel off the layers, share, be vulnerable and expose more of herselfThe blog post is usually written for the next morningSue has committed to publish - now what do I write?Content: walking the valley, noticing, thinking, observing, what is important, how to share itThe experiment in writing: being present, being real, not giving answers but provoking thought and with a surpriseAims of Sue's blog post writing: inspire, encourage, and provoke so the reader can thinkHost: Harvesting comes to mind as Sue walks through the valley: ideas, thoughts, images. The other is the reveal. After 3 decades in storytelling the experience is that the best tellers use a reveal, the invitation to vulnerability, to humanness, the story burns your bones. The world is in need of those narratives of depth. There is more here than you get at first blush; and if you are willing to go with me we can discover that together.  Harvesting is a reflection of the 15 years Sue and (her husband) Steve have inhabited their valley; they know it quite well as home and base for creativityCOVID increased isolation for Sue; incoming and outgoing client work stoppedA gift of COVID has been immersion in the seasons to greater extent than previously experiencedWhat's different is the immersion in the living cycle of life and a different harvest, an awareness of our connectednessHarvest is also a deeper awareness that we “inter-are”. [Thich Nhat Hanh]Sue's awareness of our integratedness has an effect on creativity, personhood, writing, and offers hope, of meaning  for existence15:35 to 21:05       Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without ShoutingThe unexpected gifts born of all the many challenges, suffering, turmoil still balances on hope. Who could have imagined there was good and hope to be experienced? Jane Goodall's newest book is hope. Suzanne Sinard's work on integrated forests as hope. And now Sue with the quality of hope. Question: is this notion of hope what gave rise to your book Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting OR, in the process of writing did you access hope?For Sue hope has always been a thread for her, but it has at times been pretty buriedDoing the work on the book, Quiet Disruptors, helped to bring the thread of hope nearer the surfacePart of that feeling of ties back to a prayer by Rob Bell: “I pray you are as honest with God as you are more and more open to your role in the ongoing creation of the world.”  Host: “I just love that! It belongs on a billboard.”What struck Sue is the search for meaning that all of us have; Sue had completely lost sense of who she was, her contribution to the world, meaning, belonging, purposeThe Rob Bell prayer was the support as Sue created her work and writingWriting draws so much out of us it is our essential self and workWe craft from the essence of who we areAs more people recognized what Sue was saying she was also re-uniting with herselfSue's book is also a rallying cry for The Others to join in with their unique contribution.It is our job to use our voice, to be the change we want to see and being prepared to be change   21:05 to 31:05       The Process of Writing the Book  I understood you to say at some time - correct me if I got these words upside down and backwards, “The book is the road & the practice.” Is that correct? Lets do it this way: tell us something about the process of writing this book.Sue wrote it 4 times over from start to finishPeople told Sue she had to write the book because everyone should know this Until Sue was clear what the book was there for, the process of drafting versions 1 thru 4 was the process of discovery - over a long time of edits and redraftingBy the 4th iteration Sue realized she was writing a book of advocacy: there are people in our midst we need to listen toListen (!) because these people are not shoutersSue's book is also for those who wish to develop their voice further; the last part of Sue's book is more like a handbook3 Key Points: (1) we cannot do change on our own and we need to belong; (2) calling herself a writer and peeling off the layers to expose one's true voice; and (3) finding the space/environments where Sue (and the rest of us) will flourishPartway through the writing process Sue and Steve changed churches because they realized they needed to change their space and belong with a different group of people  Sue has greater clarity and permission about the environment to flourish and write wellSue (and the Host) does her best thinking while walkingThe challenge: a Quiet Disruptor can become isolated (the Host recognizes this intimately); so they must pay attention to the challenges of this way of being  Question: How does a Quiet Disruptor go about inhabiting the role and do what they came to do without becoming invisible?Requires perseveranceRequires paying attention to what's going on insideSue is more attuned to when she is “drying up”, giving herself permission to play, seeking what she needs to flourishand saying “no” to the restSue asks, where do I need others and nourishment?  Sue cites a favorite podcast, “On Being” and giving herself time to reading poetryQuiet Disruptors might find themselves on the edge; but the belonging will feed youTip: find and invest in nourishment and belonging CloseQuestion: As we begin to close, is there something that was left unsaid?I am here. I am now. This is joy.I am here. I am now. This is joy.Before I say thank you to Sue I want to mention that all social media links and connections to Sue Heatherington, her blog and her book, Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting will be posted in the Episode Notes. Please make sure you drop by her website, subscribe to her blog and purchase a copy of her book.  Thank you very much, Sue, for walking along with us and sharing your story of quietly disrupting the status quo so that folks might think before they speak and read before they think and ask questions with grace, stubborn courage and belonging.  Thank you. It's been a delight to be with you.We could do this all day!!Here we are, at the end of the road but not the journey.

Dave Tonge is a swimming coach and world record holder from south Wales. He's been coaching swimmers and triathletes for 25 years. He played a vital role in 2019 to help rugby star Gareth 'Alfie' Thomas overcome his fear of the water to complete Ironman Wales and break the stigma around HIV. Dave also holds the World Record for completing a 24 hour swim in an endless pool, when he covered a whopping 55km. He's also hilarious, has an infectious passion for swimming and is full of useful tips to help improve your swim leg in triathlon. You'll hear: 01:30 His background in swimming as a swimmer and a coach 'chlorine is in my blood! Swimming is your time, it's your headspace. Whether you think about stuff or sing songs in your head. I just switch off and enjoy the feeling of the water' 05:45 I spotted a gap in the triathlon market and I now teach all levels of swimmer, from beginner to pro swimmers and former rugby players who decide they want to do an Ironman. 06:30 Where the idea came from to get the World Record for a 24h swim in an Endless pool. 15:15 Why his lack of a night swim in training was on his mind in the run up to his 24 hour swim and how he fuelled his 24 hour swim. 20:00 The side effects of spending 24 hours in water 'my hands looked like they had been steam rollered! The skin was flapping against the bones' 22:00 Dave shares his tips for age group triathletes and why seeing a coach can be really beneficial. Make sure you have a coach and build confidence. Surround yourself with like-minded people. Cold water and wearing a wetsuit can hit you too and acclimatise is really important. 25:00 How he has been teaching an 83 man to swim. 'oh we have had some fun and games! It was all to do with building confidence in the water and it's the same thing that I learnt as a 16 year old to build the confidence with a child. 27:45 Dave talks about teaching Gareth 'Alfie' Thomas to swim so he could complete Ironman Wales in 2019. His journey was documented in the 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lLRdWXEGL8 (HIV and me documentary). 'I had such pressure on me as a coach. There were tears at Long Course Weekend. How I got him back in the water for the second lap, I don't know.' He talks through how he did get Gareth through the swim, making him think about his motivation and his 'why'. 40:10 Dave shares his tips for athletes preparing to take on Ironman Wales and Ironman 70.3 Swansea. 'Smile! Smile at the sea and know that you are going to get out smiling, because you have paid for that and most people are doing it for fun as a hobby, so just enjoy it." 41:45 Can you do an Ironman with just one swim a week? I ask Dave. "You can get through it, but it will be a bad experience. You need to be getting in the pool three times a week. You need to do technique work and a long threshold set. Speak to someone who knows what they are doing, so you can get through it and enjoy it." 43:20 Some of the common techniques that Dave sees as a swimming coach. 'Head too high in the water, crossing the line at the front are both common ones. At the higher end for age groupers, it's not challenging all of the different energy systems.

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You'll recognize yourself in these true-life stories from women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference these journeys have made. I'm your host, Diane Wyzga.Today my guest is Sue Heatherington, writer, catalyst and thinking partner for pioneers, innovators and change-makers who want to cultivate a better change perspective in the world. In 2018 Sue coined the term “Quiet Disruptor” as a short-hand introduction to her unusually broad back story, which includes 10 years as a pioneering public service chief executive. Now, Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting is the title of her newly published book.Sue is joining us all the way from Swansea, Wales where she writes daily thought-provoking blog posts while inviting us to explore her valley through the lens of her camera. I've invited Sue to talk with us about the practice of writing, changing the narrative around conversations and belonging, her manifesto, her book, and most significantly doing it all without shouting. Welcome to the podcast, Sue!Minutes 38:2400 to 4:02       Intro and AlpacasSue (along with her podcaster husband, Steve Heatherington) are raising about 45 AlpacasDid you know that alpacas hum?They also anxiously look around: “Where's the baby! Where's the baby!”Some cluck to their babies weeks before the babies are bornSue learns so much from them4:02 to 6:28       Start From Where You AreHost: One of these fine days we will return to travel and Wales - among other places - is on my hiking itinerary. If I met up with you on one of your favorite walks, where is it and what might I notice about you?Sue smiles!Sue's valley makes she feel so good, to be in her own skinSue strolls to be where she is instead of fast walking to get somewhereSue is a wanderer, taking everything in, open to seeing what she needs to noticeSue is a stopper and a looker and a listenerSue's intention is to be very presentHost: Sue's blog posts with her photography comes from a place of slowing down, pausing and being aware.6:28 to 20:05       A Bit of Back Story. Before we get to your manifesto and your book, entitled Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting, I'd like to know a bit about how you coined the term “Quiet Disruptor” in 2018. Would you share with us how that came about and what you discovered about yourself in that process.A beautiful defining moment that Sue didn't see comingSue had gone through challenging times professionally and personally and not expecting beauty to emergeSue's approach (how can we do this differently) is not traditional and may make folks uncomfortable, like The Emperor's Clothes storyHealth, family, and Sue's own purpose, direction and income challenges together created a constellation of taxing and trying times and then Sue's diagnosis of breast cancerOut of all of this acute chaos, in her recovery time Sue was exploring “Now what?”Sue joined an online community with Bernadette Jiwa and coined “Quiet Disruptor” as a means of introducing herself with honesty but without dramaAlso reading David Hieatt and The DO Lectures As well as Susan Cane and her Quiet Power book  Being a Quiet Disruptor is Sue's life - in a quiet voiceAfter Sue began using this phrase she was stunned by how much people were drawn to it and wanted to use it as well: I can be a change-maker my own way; I feel seen and heard. Quiet Disruptor changes how people perceive themselves because change is theirs to say and do - call out the status quo, etc. but differentlyNow the “do” happens: as a way of changing the conversation for folks Sue wrote a Manifesto to enable those who want to be seen and heard to have a way to quietly disruptSue was seeing that the voices of the Quiet Disruptors were experiencing their time having come as a collective connective, to say, do, explore and createOne person can no longer be The HeroOrganizations will have to be on the forefront of the global changeHost: an unrealistic burden to expect The One to have the answers, especially when imposed by society. If The One has no answers or, not the right answers they might push, shove, shout or masqueradeSue is extending a welcome to The OthersCome on board and work together, all voices are to be heard    20:05 to 36:30       Manifesto for Quiet DisruptorsThe word Manifesto is strong, a public declaration of intention, of design. Would you give us the opportunity to hear your Manifesto.Sue reads her Manifesto as an advocate for Quiet DisruptorsWe need Quiet Disruptors and here's why.Host: There is so much in the invitation to come along. People drawn like filings to a magnet. Sue named qualities or attributes shared by the Quiet Disruptors: stubborn courage, do work quietly and insistently. Question: How might we notice change makers among us or even notice if we could be a change maker?Those who have read Sue's book and claim the Quiet Disruptor label for themselves, are self-identifyingBeing seen and heard is keySue uses tree and fruit as metaphor to explain how to notice the others.The Others have certain characteristics which we recognize: thoughtfully curious, how they are in the world, with others, those who ask the questions, delve deeper, join the dots, see the bigger picture, expression of creativity, the effect on othersHost: I imagine you have people and situations in mind. Question: would you share a few who are already carrying on as a Quiet Disruptors.The book highlights who is already out there - some well known, some not so well known - making courageous connectionsOne example: Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen, MD:  as a practicing physician could see her patients in a way colleagues could not. Also saw that her colleagues were unseen and unheard and became protectively hardened. Remen shifted this experience and radically changed clinical practice in the United StatesHost: One woman begins the shift and then change happens over the course of time. Similarly in the legal profession. Litigators who learned to tell their own stories - doing an archeological dig on themselves - were better able to tell their clients' stories. Being seen and being heard goes toward our understanding and being understood.So often people struggle to listen deeplyThe traditional model is waiting to get the next word inCultivating your curiosity has more value in the questionsWe are at a space of asking deeper questionsQuestion: Let's assume you might have to work with or encounter someone who is not so agreeable to this notion of disrupting quietly, how would you suggest working with folks like that to get them to see the necessity of hopeful, quiet change?Here we are, at the end of the road but not the journey. Thank you for listening to Part 1 of this episode of Stories From Women Who Walk with your host Diane Wyzga and my guest Sue Heatherington, Quiet Disruptor, blogger, author of the book Quiet Disruptors:Creating Change Without Shouting, and a catalyst for pioneers, innovators and change-makers who joined us from her small valley in Swansea, Wales.

Dare you go on a ghost hunt to one of Wales's "most haunted" places? Join Mark Rees and Welsh paranormal investigators Cymru Paranormal for a Halloween/ Nos Calan Gaeaf special as they go in search of restless wartime spirits. In the most ambitious episode yet, the team spend the night at Swansea's 1940s Museum, which is just like stepping back in time - outside there are Second World War air shelters, road blocks and barbed wire, and inside there are recreations of period settings, from trenches to Doctor Who-style police boxes. But what lurks in the darkness? Does the ghost of an RAF serviceman haunt the operations room? Are the spectres still fighting an endless fight against the Nazis? Do spirits drink spirits (groan - sorry!) in the pub, where spectres have been seen playing cards? There's only one way to find out! Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) and the gang of "ghostbusters" for this Nos Calan Gaeaf/ Halloween special of the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.     What is the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast? In early 2020, Mark Rees launched the world's first podcast dedicated to Welsh ghost stories, folklore, myths and legends. By combining his unique research and insights from many books and articles with long-lost tales from dusty old tomes, this weird and wonderful podcast takes a fascinating look at the country's countless curious subjects.

Your host, Tom Austin-Morgan returns to talk about what's been going on since the mammoth Permanent Record Podcast and Banned Biographies crossover podcast was released last month where they reviewed and dissected U2's iconic 1987 album The Joshua Tree and what you can expect from this months' episode. I'll also be talking about my experience at Skamouth Festival, which was my first gig in Sham 69. Firstly, I'd like to thank Brian and Sarah again for allowing me to stich four of their episodes together and put it out on my feed. I wasn't expecting big download numbers, because the episode was 8 hours long, and because they'd already been published individually by Permanent Record Podcast. However, it's quickly become one of the most downloaded Banned Biographies episodes that isn't a documentary, so I'd like to thank you all for downloading it and – hopefully – listening all the way through. If you enjoyed what you heard you really should subscribe to the Permanent Record Podcast and let Brian and Sarah know you found out about them through Banned Biographies. I played my first gig with Sham 69 on Sunday 2nd October and I cover the whole weekend in some detail on this episode. Luckily, I survived being chucked in the deep end and will be playing with Sham 69 at four more gigs across the country in November: Saturday 6th November, The Snig, Widnes (tickets from seetickets) Saturday 13th November, New Cross Inn, London (tickets from New Cross Inn) Thursday 18th November, The Old Courts, Wigan (tickets from eventbrite) Friday 19th November, The Bunkhouse, Swansea (tickets from The Bunkhouse) I'd love to see some of you listeners at these gigs, do come up and say hello if you come along.

A Personnel Problem: What's the solution to hospitality's staffing crisis?

The hospitality sector has a problem: it just can't get the staff. Businesses from bars to hotels are facing a massive worker shortage, as job vacancies in the sector hit their highest levels since records began. Last month, in an open letter to the government, various hospitality professionals warned that the sector was “close to imploding” because of acute labour shortages. And the cracks are showing, as outlets still struggling post-lockdown are forced to resort to a skeleton staff: reducing opening hours or even closing altogether. While some blame the pandemic and others point to a drop in EU workers after Brexit, figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest the industry was struggling to find and retain staff even before these events. So what's at the heart of this crisis – and more importantly, how can we fix it? Sheila Dillon assembles a panel of hospitality insiders to find out: talking to Kate Nicholls, chief executive of the national trade organisation UKHospitality; Sarah John, the founder and director of Boss Brewing, a craft brewery based in Swansea; and Niall McKenna, chef and owner of James Street & Co restaurant group in Belfast, comprising two restaurants and a cookery school. We also hear from chef and restaurateur Angela Hartnett on how kitchen culture is changing for the better; and Samantha Evans and Shauna Guinn - co-founders of the Hang Fire Southern Kitchen in Barry, Wales - tell us about their decision to close permanently because of staff shortages.

Crucial to his development was playing under Johan Cruyff at Barcelona, who was a genius at conveying his message in simple terms.There's great stuff about how the Danish national team transitioned from Corinthian purity to become perennial overachievers.

Today we look at the dire states of the East Midlands with both Derby and Forest in disarray, we praise Fleetwood for their fight, and ask if there's a player with a better tan than Jay Spearing. All that plus we analyse footballers' tweets, reassess manager's quotes, and attempt to come up with a modern day Saint and Greavsie.

Episode 18 is live, and we talk through all the important topics of the week, such as how you pronounce brands such as Bose and Ritter Sport (other electronic and confectionary brands are available). We also go deep into our milk preferences, so if you want to learn some valuable insights into Josh's ‘intolerances' then you won't want to miss this show. Matt's fully into his taper now and wonders why the people of Wrexham are so keen on Fosters. We learn about his chocolate intake per week (basically a lot of Lindor balls), and we link his taper into listener questions this week, so go through all your race week taper queries. Josh has been racing again in Swansea, he talks us through his hair dye colour of choice, his thoughts on full tracksuit runs and learn the revelation that he has never had a kebab before. Josh spends the show doing a range of weird stretches, much to the distraction of the others, so apologies for the bad radio it produces. Aaron's had a poorly daughter this week, so on Matt's advice is considering reducing her alcohol intake to singles moving forwards. He's been up to watch the Northern Road Relays in Redcar, done a little bit of running and is keen to kick start his running career again now he's feeling a bit more normal. Enjoy the show, people, and have a bang average week.

Does the ghost of a lady in white really haunt one of Wales's "most haunted" castles? When darkness falls on Oystermouth Castle, one of Swansea's more mysterious inhabitants emerges from the shadows to peer out over the village of Mumbles. And, if you believe the tales, she can even be summoned in a similar way to saying Candyman or Beetlejuice more times that it is safe to do so. But who is this white lady, and who has see her? Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he goes on a ghost hunt in search of the White Lady herself by exploring the history, legends, and first-hand accounts of paranormal activity on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.     What is the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast?

With Richard still kicking back in Dubai, this BTS episode remains via Zoom. However, it contains all the usual goalkeeping goodness, with a focus on David de Gea, Ederson and Aaron Ramsdale from the weekend's Premier League action. Congrats go to Vicente Guaita for racking up 100 appearances at Crystal Palace, a second full top-flight appearance for Jed Steer (six years after his first) and a first league outing for Ben Hamer at Swansea.
