A lively, off-the-cuff conversation hosted by Tuesday Ryan-Hart and Tim Merry on large-scale systems change and equity. Together, Tim and Tuesday are THE OUTSIDE - systems change and equity facilitators who bring the fresh air necessary to organize movements, organizations, and collaborators forward for progress, surfacing new mindsets for greater participation and shared impact. In this podcast, we’ll share our greatest light-bulb moments as we advance our own understanding of this work. We’re doing it live, and inviting you in. Welcome! As Tim says in the first episode: reflection is too important to leave to chance. These conversations give us (and you!) a chance to slow down, catch our breath, and see our space and our work more clearly.
||Explicit1.11: Sporting: Setting up to support winning, delight, and formative goodness||In episode eleven, Tim and Tuesday deconstruct the change journey of a piece of work that rings bells across the spectrum.

Powerful and Engaging
Tim and Tuesday pack a powerful punch here. There's great chemistry between the two of them and the conversation is free-wheeling. It's great fun to listen in as they riff on what they're learning as they engage in their audacious work. It's the next best thing to being in the room with them. Expect to have ideas bubbling around in your brain for days after listening!
I’m so glad Tim and Tuesday are sharing their learnings in this way. The conversations are relevant no matter what field you’re working in, and delivered in a casual, accessible way. Good tunes too.
I just listened to the episode with Kate Inglis and am really digging it. With some experience in developmental evaluation, I am so happy to be able to 'listen in' on your conversation about emergence, aligned views, marvelling together at the not knowing and the wonder of the difficulty of trying. It's so nice to hear folks speaking the language!
And to hear you chat with Kate about your branding and process was timely. I recently made the leap to focus fully on my business and feel like I've been thinking/listening/reading all things branding as of late. Thanks for this!
Love the podcast and insights you both share - keep them coming!
