A few months ago, one of our guests from the New York Times, Dr Kacey Vu Shap, asked if he could come back as a guest host because he wanted to put Dr Wand 'in the hot seat'. In this bonus episode, Dr Shap talks with Dr Wand about the importance of 'thinking outside the box' and why academics make the best creative practitioners for business and industry. In addition, Dr Wand discusses her new venture into entrepreneurship with the launch of her business, 'The Oxford Method', and the reasons why she created this podcast. theoxfordmethod.co.uk
Well...this was a fun, and a drastic change from the daily humdrum of my THIRD lockdown in less than a year. So, if you're looking for some fun banter about 'women's things', history, and folklore then I highly suggest you nuzzle up to this bonus episode with the fabulous (and hilarious), Kate J. Armstrong, host of 'The Exploress' podcast. And don't worry, there's nothing we've mentioned here that you haven't thought about already...

This episode is a particularly special one to me as it was a 20 year reunion with an old friend of mine whose work I came across in the New York Times about his adoption from Vietnam. Entitled 'Why did she leave me there?', Kacey talks about the emotional trauma that he faced as a result of his abandonment by his grandmother, and how as a researcher his own 'hero's journey' helped him to want to understand how former gang members deal with trauma and try to move beyond it.
