(Episode 43) As we approach the end of 2016, for many people, it will be remembered as a year of painful world events and some shocking realizations about how little we understand about one another. It isn’t that feeling disconnected or mass violence were invented over the past year, but it is perhaps a major moment in recent history where we are confronted with the depth and scale that these things can reach.

screen-shot-2016-12-15-at-16-24-10With this as the backdrop, in communities all over the world – like Berlin – there are projects dedicated to learning, new experiences, and connecting people. One such project is the School of Machines, Making and Make-Believe. In 2015 we first heard from Rachel Uwa, founder of the School of MA, about what the plan and mission was and how it would all work. Almost two years later, today on the podcast we hear from Rachel, about the ups, downs, and interesting developments at the school. We also delve into the art of trying something new, learning from failure, and philosophy of growth.

If you’re curious about human behavior, learning, technology, community, or anything in between — this is the podcast for you.

Over the past decade many unique approaches to teaching and learning have taken root here. And today on the program we will bring you three voices – Abe Pazos, Rachel Uwa, and Maria Reimer.
