Episode 61 - Aaron Kearney | Journalist & Director of AKS Media
In this episode, I chat with Aaron Kearney, a multi-award-winning broadcaster, photo-journalist, and sports commentator. The Director of AKS Media International, Aaron is in demand across the globe for his experience in broadcasting, commentary, storytelling and innovation.
We cover a range of topics during this episode, including sports and the similarities between the game of sport and the game of life, being a student of humanity, the importance of critical thinking, and unpacking the use of media and the effects it has on human beings.
Key episode highlights include:
- You’ve heard ‘you are what you eat’ - well you also are what you consume in the media. Put some fibre in your intellectual diet.
- Two of the most critical resources that any individual can have is to understand and execute critical thinking, and to have high levels of media literacy.
- Journalism is about being infinitely interested in everything - like a Labrador puppy!
We’ll leave you with Aaron’s poetic description of Inspired Energy - "It is the offspring produced when dreams and determination have a passionate affair."
