Find the Good News with Oran Parker

Ep. 39 - The Wormhole Ft. Amanda Yellott - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

May 15, 2019

What happens when a fan becomes a guest? That’s what I found out when I asked wonder-fan Amanda Yellott to come in and visit me on Find the Good News. With a young podcast like this one, it’s a little easier to engage with listeners in a personal way, and Amanda is precisely the type of listener a show like this needs. She’s engaged, introspective, encouraging, willing to challenge the thoughts and ideas presented, and open to absorbing new perspectives and practices as takeaways she can apply to her own life. What more could any podcaster ask for? As I got to know Amanda as a fan, I ended up learning about her specific good news, her good works. Amanda is the director of the dance program at the Whistle Stop, a program designed to engage youth using dance as a vehicle, giving them a place to receive mentorship, learn exciting new skills, and work with others. These children may be learning to dance literally, but they are also learning to dance with life metaphorically, to take the right steps, to find the rhythm, and move with the ebb-and-flow. As much as I enjoyed speaking with Amanda about her good news as the director of the Whistle Stop dance program, it was her perspective as a listener that I think I got the most out of. Our conversation was a bit like entering a wormhole, wondering where exactly where we’d travel as we cross the bridge, and wondering where we would come out on the other side. What was quite lovely and refreshing was that we didn’t always agree, or have the same perspective, and that was a-okay. For that solitary reason, my visit with Amanda Yellott was pretty good news to me.
