    How To "Travel" with Your Kids During Isolation Time

    Now, in isolation time, and with many more hours to fill with my girls, I’ve shifted to a version of “traveling” on gently educational virtual trips as a way to engage, teach and expand the feeling of the limited floor space that we can navigate. This episode will look at how you can "travel" virtually without leaving home and engage and teach your kids about the world even when we are self-isolating.

    A (Sort of) Local's Guide to Ljubljana

    How many times can a city be called a ‘hidden gem’ and still remain hidden? This is the question for Ljubljana, which these days is packed with enthusiastic tourists, yet still feels to each of them like a secret wonderland they’ve just discovered. This episode looks at my "local's guide" to Ljubljana--what I recommend and why.

    I Love Luka Doncic

    Writing for Publication - Kako Pisemo in Izdajamo Knjige in Clanki (in English in tudi v Slovenscini)

    This episode is drawn from a workshop I teach on writing for publication. How do you find an agent, get a publisher, write a book proposal, all the nuts and bolts that are rarely taught about the mechanics of being a writer, whether dealing with books or articles. But this was a special class, as I taught it bilingually, teaching the material in both English and Slovenian--with weird but hopefully helpful results. Poteka v slovenscini in anglescini. Dobrodosli!
