Choose to live your life in gratitude with Georgian Benta. LF 003

Georgian Benta from the Gratitude Podcast joins me on the Learning on Fire podcast and explores the most important learning and educational moments that shaped his life.

Our guest – Georgian Benta

Most of us have to make a conscious effort to be grateful, we need an experience or some contrasting story that we hear about to remind us that we can be grateful and that we really should be.

My goal with this project is to inspire those that find it harder to be grateful, to choose to live a life filled with gratefulness or at least to get a boost of this amazing feeling when things don’t seem to go the right way.

My vision is to inspire 100,000 people to focus on gratitude and on what makes them grateful in their life. Help me spread the word and share what you find on this blog with your friends and family, with the ones that need it most.

070: Viking History with Noah Tetzner

 

Viking history is a passion for my guest Noah Tetzner. His podcast is called The History of Vikings and he interviews some of the worlds leading academics on the subject.

We talk about:

  • How he got into podcasting at just 17 years of age.
  • New ways of learning in the digital age through mediums like podcasts & YouTube.
  • His experiences of being inspired by teachers passionate about history.
  • How to focus on your passions while studying all subjects in the curriculum.
  • Homeschooling

 

Noah describes his show:

The Vikings were a truly legendary people. For nearly 300 years they ruled the waves of the Northern Seas and raided peaceful monasteries and towns along the coasts of England, Ireland, Scotland and France.

As raiders the Vikings had an infamous and beastly reputation. Pillaging, burning, and killing whatever lay in their path. They would stop at nothing to appease their desire for wealth and glory.

But apart from being excellent at raiding, the Vikings established a trading network that stretched from Finland to Newfoundland, successfully besieged the greatest, most heavily defended city in the world, discovered North America, and revolutionized the way that we build ships.

Not to mention the vibrant myths and sagas they told that are still capable of inspiring us today. The history of Vikings is a rich one, and I hope you’ll join me in rediscovering it!
