I’m thrilled to announce I got my act together. The Rare Air podcast is back.
After a long time planning a new podcast, refining an approach and trying to think of a new name I came up with this. Just keep going with Rare Air.
What is Rare Air about?
Well, the stories are diverse and the experiences rich, but the themes are simple. I want to know what these people care most about professionally, what they’ve been prepared to try very hard to achieve and where their heart lies.
I’ve reached out to a lot of people over the last couple of weeks in the hope they will join me for a conversation at some point soon. If you have suggestions, connections or love brainstorming, please contact me.
For today though, my first guest on Rare Air 26 is Jane Caro.
“I think I knew on some level that I wasn’t conventional, that I wasn’t an acceptable kind of girl and I worried very much (as a young woman) about how that might affect me…and it took me a very long time to realise that it was a waste of time trying to control how other people responded to me.”Jane Caro
I met Jane Caro at the 2019 Perth Writers Festival just after the publication of “Accidental Feminists”, her exploration of the fortunes of a generation of women swept up in the social changes brought about by second wave feminism.
Curious to hear more about how Jane’s work life is built around her strongest convictions, I invited her to speak with me for Rare Air. In this conversation, among MANY things, Jane discusses the challenges of being an honest woman on social media, the value of “preaching to the converted” and her commitment to using her privilege to be a voice for those less safe to speak up. Here’s Rare Air with Jane Caro.
