What’s in your intercultural toolbox?
Jul 7, 2021 · by Richard Farkas
Some ideas take years to bear fruit. This morning, I was finally able to see the fruit ripen and it was an Apple, so to speak. At last the Intercultural Toolbox podcast got listed by Apple, the world’s biggest podcasting platform and our new intercultural podcast is up and running!
I say “our” new podcast, but really the Intercultural Toolbox podcast belongs to the guests and the audience. The guests are the stars of the show and the audience are the community of interculturalists we are proud to play a part in.
The Intercultural Toolbox guests include our much-loved Cultural Correspondents as well as many others who are contributing to the intercultural field. One of the great pleasures of my role running Argonaut and developing the CultureConnector service is getting to meet the fascinating people who do intercultural work. I feel privileged to hear their stories, see the impact they have and often to collaborate with them.
But one thing has always bothered me. So many ideas are exchanged and freely shared in private or semi-public conversations, but those ideas are lost to the community who were not present in the moment. The Intercultural Toolbox is a way to capture the best of those conversations and to make more useful, inspiring and sometimes just fun stuff available to more interculturalists.
