As a teacher, Matt King has always been an advocate for children of all backgrounds. But when he fostered an 11-year-old boy who had endured trauma, his perspective changed. In this episode, Matt describes the common mistakes that schools make in dealing with victims of abuse, and questions some models of discipline. For example, if somebody is acting out, it can be best to bring them in rather than kick them out. Matt explains that much of what is defined as “bad behavior” among adolescents is a result of trauma, and that people’s first experience with violence is almost always as the victim. Matt creates his classroom to be an example of one that he would like to see in schools across the United States, full of empathy and acceptance. Now as a parent--having adopted that same 11-year-old boy--Matt shares what can be done to enhance inclusivity and better understand children who have endured trauma.What sparked Matt's interest in being an advocate for children of abuse (1:15)What is trauma?

One morning last year as a mom was driving home from the gym, her child called and told her some news that would change their lives, their relationship, and reverberate through their extended family for months (perhaps years) to come: they'd made the decision to transition into a female. In this raw, revealing interview, this mom discusses:How her child shared the news (01:33)Her husband's reaction--which was (and remains) far different from her own (04:41)The process of transitioning (16:40)Her view on how parents can best support kids going through the process of transitioning (18:31)Gender expectations we put on kids (23:47)Her feelings about her child undergoing surgery (31:15)Thoughts on transitioning pre-puberty vs. as an older person (32:53)How this experience has changed her fundamentally as a parent and as a person (39:10)The continuing challenges--but since her child had suicidal thoughts, "not having my child alive is not an option" (41:11)This is a story of unconditional love for a child; of a mother voicing her needs and establishing her own boundaries; of discovery--not just about someone else but about yourself.Want to know more about families experiencing transition?Check out this website: https://www.genderspectrum.org/The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians, and the Human Rights Campaign's guide for families of transgender children: Supporting & Caring for Transgender ChildrenCentral Toronto Youth Services' guide for families of trans youth: Families in TRANSitionWant to know more about The Experience Podcast?Sign up to be on our Insiders' List to receive our newsletters and insiders' information!

After just one day on a television set, Ken Fuchs knew that he had found his career path. He was assigned the job of stopping traffic while the director shot scenes, listening for “action!” and “cut!” cues from his walkie talkie. When he returned to the studio at the end of the day, he was asked to come back the following day–and he’s worked in television ever since. Now, decades later, Ken is a renowned television director.Ken has spent his career directing unscripted reality TV shows, such as Shark Tank, Family Feud, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Ken is a three-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee, five-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee and the 2019 Daytime Emmy award winner for Outstanding Directing for a Gameshow. Ken’s jobs have taken him around the globe; he’s been to more than sixty-five countries with The Bachelor  franchise.

What is it really like to start... produce... and host a podcast?Elizabeth Pearson Garr had been turning this question over in her mind for years before she released the first episode of The Experience Podcast in October 2021. The past year has been a whirlwind of cold calls, editing, researching, and lots of learning. This week, we’re flipping the script on The Experience Podcast; it’s Elizabeth’s turn to be interviewed. The Experience Podcast social media coordinator, Heather Stenwall, takes the mic to ask Elizabeth what it’s really like to host a podcast. Independent entrepreneurship can be intimidating; it’s scary to go out on your own, especially in an industry you’ve never worked in before. Pushing past the fear, though, opens the door to endless exciting possibilities. Elizabeth shares her highlights of hosting The Experience Podcast, challenges she’s faced, and tips and tricks of the trade for podcast beginners; if you don’t have a sound booth, for example, a roomful of stuffed animals will suffice. And, of course, you always need a trusty – and quiet – dog by your side.In the episode, Elizabeth suggested that anyone interested in starting a podcast might want to read some books on the subject .  Here are a few she recommends:"Podcasting" by Amanda Mayo"So You Want to Start a Podcast" by Kristen Meinzer"Out on the Wire" by Jessica Abel and Ira GlassWant to know more about Elizabeth--and The Experience Podcast?Sign up to be on our Insiders' List to receive our newsletters and insiders' information!

In New York City in 1993, a group of people got together: about half of them had experience in television production but knew very little about food or cooking; the other half were "foodies" but were clueless about television.  Through trial, error, grit, and a lot of dirty dishes, they created the Television Food Network.Elizabeth Pearson Garr, host/creator of The Experience Podcast,  was one of the first employees of what was then known as TVFN.  In this episode she shares personal stories--including actual journal entries from the time!--and details what it was like to be among the crew that patched together early shows while sitting on boards made of splinters, in a studio that didn't even have a kitchen.  She recalls meeting and working with then-unknowns such as Emeril Lagasse, Bobby Flay and Mario Batali, as well as reveling in having legendary Julia Child come to the studio every Friday.  Meanwhile, the anchor of the news show was simultaneously the First Lady of New York City--married to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at the time--which provided extra excitement and drama.It was an exhilarating, exhausting stew of scripts, cookbooks, long hours, kitchen gadgets, gala events, cramped editing suites, hard work and friendships.Want to know more about Elizabeth and The Experience Podcast?Sign up to be on our Insiders' List to receive our newsletters and insiders' information!
