Ambition, children’s education and S Club 7; Nostalgia interview with Sarah Blackman

In the latest episode of the Nostalgia podcast series, Chris Deacy, Head of the Department of Religious Studies interviews Sarah Blackman (nee Harden) who graduated in Religious Studies at Kent in 2016.

Sarah tells us about her ambition to become a primary school teacher and what initially stopped her from realizing her dreams. She also recounts childhood memories, listening to Mark Goodier counting down the charts on a Sunday evening, what happened when S Club 7 beat Madonna to be number 1, why her RE supply teacher was such an inspiration, why writing essays at university entailed ‘blood, sweat and tears’, and her obsession with ‘Friends’ and ‘Toy Story’. Sarah then goes on to talk about how children today are more aware than ever of changes in the environment, and the way we tend to filter out more negative experiences.
