  1. the INF Club podcast - Episode 59: Kendra Patterson on how embracing her creative nature helped her move through burnout

    18 May 2021

    In Kendra’s own words… I am a writer, podcaster, and creativity coach with a background in social science research. I coach other creatives, sensitive intuitives, and late bloomers who are trying to create lives that feel purpose-driven and satisfying at a deep level. I’m currently working on a research project on living life experimentally rather than conceptually, and why this may be a better way to approach life for creative late bloomers struggling to feel like they are fulfilling their potential.

    What we talk about Kendra’s background as a PhD scholar, and the blog & podcast she currently runs Experiencing ‘whole-life’ burnout, and how this added context to Kendra’s experience of depression & anxiety Why conventional therapy doesn’t seem to work for us, and the conclusions that Kendra and I have drawn about this Being a creative, non-conforming rebel… and trying to fit into the conventional world On seeking a career that was adjacent to Kendra’s art (writing fiction), & what Kendra’s ‘career’ currently looks like On money: living frugally whilst on the creative path, vs peers who are hitting conventional, societal milestones When Kendra knew that the conventional path wasn’t for her, and moving out of burnout, depression & anxiety Understanding the world through words and language, and the importance of authenticity for INFPs Experimental vs conceptual types, & being a "late (repeat) bloomer" Our experiences as experimental types, being told I needed to "stick at things" & seeing our CV and life experiences as a narrative story that leads to where we are today Why Kendra’s "dark night of the soul" was exactly what she needed to experience Testing as an INFJ, but identifying as an INFP (being ‘on the cusp’) Links Kat Nicholls (website)

  4. Episode 1: Introduction | The History of English Podcast


    My hobby is DNA research an in particular am running a project covering a new branch of DNA that we current call ‘South Baltic’.

    It is a brother branch separate from the R-U106 (often called the Germanic line) and R-P312 (mostly associated with Celtic peoples). We are R-S1194.

    The emergence of the Steppe herders from the region above the Black sea opened a new understanding for us and we have been looking at the ways the Yamnya pastoralists would have reached the region where the Unetice Culture emerged (Bohemia or Czech Republic).

    Your podcasts offer a fascinating way of looking at the movement of these people and them blending with others along their Journey into Western Europe.

    The one aspect of this whole story exemplified in the split and apparent homelands of the Celts & Germanics is the issue of did this westward migration involve two groups of the same people – one moving up south of the Carpathians & along the Danube to perhaps found the R-P312 branch of R1b, and a separate group

    moving towards Bohemia through the Ukraine and or Russia then Poland and later on to the Scandinavian & Nth German regions.

    The challenge I have been looking at is ‘was there a dual migration of Yamnaya/Kurgan people two groups going both Nth & Sth of the Carpathians’, or, was there only one migration nth of the Carpathians plus a later back migration down south of the Carpathians.

    The reason the dual-migration path has challenges is that the immediate parent SNP for all the branches of R1b (particularly R-U106, R-P312 & R-S1194) is R-L11 and that SNP (even in ancient DNA burials now being analysed) can’t be found other

    that around Bohemia. It appears to have emerged either in Ukraine or Poland or Bohemia itself. Thus implying their could only be one migration route either via the nth or the sth route around the Carpathians.

    Your podcasts make a very strong case for a dual migration path from the Steppes, with proto-Germanic evolving Nth of the Carpathians and proto-Celtic evolving via a Sth of the Carpathians migration.

    However, this leads to the issue of the missing common R-L11 SNP from below the Carpathians.

    So was it possible that the Sth Carpathian route reflects a migration of the culture and language for the ‘Celtic’ branch of PIE, rather than the actual people. (i.e. did the language migrate itself, if it turns out that R-L11 people did not do that Sth migration ?

    Again, your podcasts offer an intriguing explanation for how the Celtic and Germanic languages might have reached Hallstatt (Celtic) & Bohemia (both)

    differently, and, why the daughter languages are so different.

    I recommend to all my project members to try to listen to as many of your podcasts as they are able. The work is excellent and commendable.

  7. Celebrating Passover and Easter

    Whether the last supper was a Passover Seder I do not know. I do know that the rituals of the Passover dinner have been in place for thousands of years, although always open to evolution. And yet, there don’t seem to be any universal elements about Easter celebratory foods. The episode looks at these two contrasting aspects of ritual food.

    First, Susan Weingarten talks about an essential item on the Passover table that is not mentioned in God’s original instructions for the last supper of the Israelites in Egypt.

    Then, I talk to Lois Long about a recipe made famous by her mother, Edna M. Holmgren. Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs won the Pillbury Bake-Off in 1969 and were subsequently expropriated by some Christians to retell the story of the resurrection.

    The recipe

    This copy of Edna Holmgren’s recipe is not quite the original. Lois Long told me that “the flour in the cinnamon sugar mixture was Pillsbury’s idea. I cut it down to 1 tbsp but I don’t like it. The original recipe has no flour.” I do wonder what it is there for. Possibly to soak up melting gooeyness, because many of the comments on the Hall of Fame website are complaints about the mess if the pastry isn’t very carefully sealed.

    Susan Weingarten’s book Haroset: A Taste of Jewish History is published by The Toby Press.

    Huge thanks to Lois Long for sharing her time, her memories, and copies of some of her memorabilia.

    The cover image is a print by Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen after Albrecht Dürer, from the Rosenwald Collection of the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.

    The banner image of The Last Supper is by the workshop of Pedro Berruguete, circa 1495–1500, a gift of the Ahmanson Foundation to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

    Oooops. Oh dear. I thought I had double checked the date of Pesach, but I apparently got it wrong. I said Thursday. It is Friday. Sincere apologies.
