Greetings and welcome to the Nothing Never Happens podcast. As co-hosts, Tina Pippin and Lucia Hulsether invite you to join us on a journey into educational or pedagogical theory and questions of democracy, freedom, and liberatory teaching. We are creating an episodic podcast series on critical pedagogy which investigates issues around power and authority in the classroom, democratic practices, popular education models, radical and anarchist educational theories and general dreaming of a better world with our students and community partners. The title, Nothing Never Happens, comes from one of Tina’s teaching method gurus, Dr. John D. Hendrix, who taught a “how to teach and think about teaching” course when she was in graduate school. Tina teaches religious studies, gender and women’s studies, and human rights at Agnes Scott College, a historic women’s college in Decatur, GA, and is continually learning to be a teacher-activist. Lucia Hulsether is a doctoral candidate In American Religion at Yale University. As Myles Horton, one of the founders of the Highlander Center, related, “We make the road by walking,” and the necessary part is the “we”—the community of students, colleagues, educational theorists, community organizers and partners that make the journey alongside. Nothing never happens is thus a bit of a mantra for our teaching, and thus for this podcast. Listen to and download all the podcasts on iTunes. Click here.
