Venn Lockdown Radio: Programme Six

Welcome to the sixth programme in our Lockdown Radio series, and our first delivered on a Saturday morning!

On this week’s programme, Sam and Julia chat to alumni Nico and Michelle Neethling about their separate experiences on the Residential Internship, their long-distance relationship, some of their parenting experiences, and the stories of economic hardship that Nico is seeing through his job at BNZ. You’ll hear from one of Venn’s Adjunct Teaching Fellow’s, Hannah Chapman, who shares about her work and her family’s papa kāinga in Turangi. And you’ll catch an interview with Vocational Programme alumnus, the Revd Frank Ritchie, who shares about his role as chaplain to New Zealand’s overworked and often under-appreciated media.

We’ve heard that some alumni have been saving Lockdown Radio for their Saturday morning breakfast with the kids. With our new Saturday morning rhythm, we hope you can grab a coffee or tea and enjoy hearing from some of the voices in the wider Venn community.
