P4C from Oz: Short and Curly Podcast

This week, as most readers are on holiday, a link to a great podcast series for children about philosophy. It’s Short and Curly from the Australian Broadcasting Network, one of my favourite media outlets:

r
Their Harry Potter episode explores an interesting question in the context of Severus Snape – Do you have to be nice to be good? The two concepts tend to get conflated, but there are people who have shown great moral courage and self-sacrifice who are nonetheless rather unpleasant in their personal and professional relations.
r
Each of their episodes will give you great ideas for use in the classroom.

Best wishes,

PS. If like me, you generally prefer music by dead people, ABC’s Classic is a great station you can listen to online. Better than the UK’s Classic FM, and no adverts! https://www.abc.net.au/classic/
