Meet Your Hosts : The Unbreakable Links Podcast is a creative collaboration between two friends, Amy Somers (pictured), and Kate Erlenbusch. Since studying teaching and theology together over ten years ago, the two have been engrossed in deep conversation about a whole range of topics. The podcast covers philosophy, spirituality and social ecology. ~
When Amy’s not podcasting, she can be found social justice lawyering, song writing, loving up her gorgeous nephews, or dreaming and scheming about her next adventure. ~

Tomorrow Season Two kicks off with Episode 9 interview with @wayapawuurrk founders. Tune in.
Wonder: A state of being. An open, gentle curiosity. Grounded in respect and awe.
Wonder is the emotion behind all of our conversations in the second season of Unbreakable Links. And we’re so grateful our featured photographer Douglas McClurg captures this feeling so beautifully.

Season 2 of Unbreakable Links kicks off on Friday July 13 (on a new moon no less). What are you in for? Conversations through social, ecological and philosophical terrain. We warmly invite you to join us. Kate & Amy x
“Trump says ‘Let’s Make America Great Again’: I say ‘Let’s Make Nature Sacred Again”, David Tacey.
We interviewed David on the topic of spirituality in Australia, and can’t wait to share this rich conversation with you. This is one of his many books, Jung, Psyche, Earth ⬆️. Tacey notes quite accurately that it’s “a typical Australian habit to denounce and refuse a religious identity, and yet to go on to demonstrate, in one’s values, actions and behaviour that one is broadly speaking ‘spiritual’ after all.” Season 2 of Unbreakable Links available soon.
Sometimes slowly, sometimes swiftly; we are collectively waking up to our unbreakable links. No longer can we bear the pain of separation, we hunger to live the truth of our interconnectedness. ▪️
When @amysomerscreative and I embarked on this endeavour, we simply wanted to explore all of the connections we could make between topics and disciplines. As we created Season 1 of the podcast, we realised that underpinning all of our curiosities was the theme of interdependence. Season 2 is launching soon and we cannot wait to share it with you. ▪️
Episode 9 is a conversation with Jamie Thomas and Sara Jones, founders of @wayapawuurrk . We talk about Aboriginal spirituality, how to develop a relationship to earth and spirit to realise our roles as custodians. ▪️
Episode 10 we explore the philosophy of the whole child, and how we can meet the 7 needs of children in our care (as well as our own), with author and @childosophy Founder @drmaxinetherese . ▪️ Episode 11 we chat with author and public academic David Tacey about spirituality in Australia, Jung and ecology. ▪️ Plus more episodes which will be revealed in due course. If you’d like to subscribe to our podcast, you can via iTunes. Next episode drops early June.
Would love you to join us as we retrace and remember our unbreakable links. Kate x
At the Unbreakable Links recording studio (aka my home office), we aim to keep our guests cozy and warm. Here’s our guest Dr Maxine Therese wrapped in a patchwork quilt moments before headphones went on for a heartwarming chat 😍 Maxine’s work promotes the child as a soul — unified in body, mind and spirit. Can’t wait to share this deep dive into her philosophy soon!
Today we interviewed Dr Maxine Therese, author of this wonderful book: The Push for a Child Philosophy. It’s the second guest we’ve had for season 2 of Unbreakable Links and Amy and I can’t wait to share it with you. K x
Episode 08 of #unbreakablelinkspodcast explores the relationship between aspirational dreams (the cultural imagination and societal ideals) and our night dreams. It's probably the one I feel most vulnerable to share, but thankfully we recorded this back in November so I've forgotten much of what I've said 😂 // All 8 episodes of Season 1 are available via iTunes, other apps and direct from our website. 🎧Link in profile 🎧

Podcast // Latest episode of Unbreakable Links is live and can be accessed via iTunes or direct from our site (link in profile). It's about neoliberalism and the natural world, but don't let the title intimidate you. It's really about questioning how we relate to our environment, to nature, and is part of an ongoing inquiry into our place on the planet. Would love to know what you think. Listen in and if you feel moved to, please share. Kate x

How do we open ourselves up to richer, kinder narratives on ageing when we inhabit a culture that worships youthfulness? 🎧 That's what Amy & I ponder in Episode 06: Ageing & Growth, Unbreakable Links Season 1. We'd love you to listen in via our website (direct from iTunes isn't the best sound quality on this one). Link in profile. Enjoy, Kate & Amy x

🎧 Episode 05 // What is Neoliberalism? // Unbreakable Links Podcast 🎧
If you've ever pursued self-improvement or wondered why we tend to define people in dollar figures, you'll likely enjoy this introduction to neoliberalism. We are not economic theorists but as children of the 80's (Margaret Thatcher's children in some respects), it's been interesting unpacking the effect of neoliberalism on our hearts and minds. We'd love you to listen in and let us know your thoughts. Download directly from website (link in profile) or iTunes. Kate & Amy x
Episode 04: Mindfulness & Social Media, Unbreakable Links podcast. 🎧
It's a little meta and kinda ironic to post it here, but here we are -- with a conversation about the challenges of staying "mindful" in our digital age. This episode was recorded after a 2 week digital detox. We'd love to know your thoughts on this topic. Listen in via our website (link in profile) or download directly from iTunes. Kate & Amy xx
Episode 03: Day On a Plate // Unbreakable Links Podcast. 🎧
This episode was built around an experiment; a twist on the My Day on a Plate Sydney Morning Herald Column. But rather than analyse the nutritional content and presence of activated nuts, we used the menus as a springboard for questions into food production. Where does our food come from? How much do we know? And how much power as consumers do we really have? 🎧
Thanks to @carolinechandlerphoto for contributing her travel photography. Clearly the women are not Amy and I, but this image does take me back to my time in Vietnam many years ago.

Unbreakable Links, Episode 02: Poetry & the Numinous.
In this conversation Amy and I discuss the power of poetry to open us up to that unexplainable dimension of our lives. Would love to hear if any ideas resonate with you as they do with us.
All 8 episodes are available on iTunes, other apps and our website (link in profile). Thanks to @carolinechandlerphoto for the image.
🎧PODCAST IS LIVE 🎧 Episode 01: Ancestral Wounds & Wisdom.
We'd love you to tune into our new podcast: Unbreakable Links. It's a passion project created by my dear friend Amy Somers & I. We are not experts, simply curious conversationalists who wanted to discuss a range of topics and learn some new skills in the process.
Thanks to @carolinechandlerphoto for contributing the photography (including this one) from her travel collection.

PODCAST COMING SOON || It's a truth universally acknowledged that anything worth doing usually takes longer than you think! Many months spent conversing, learning, recording, editing, doo-dadding with the whatchamacallit techie stuff and finally, for better or worse, we'll be sharing it with you next week. 🤞🏻🎧 Logo by @mailed_with_love
