Inger and Jason have been busy, you know - the usual. Inger has been deep in three minute thesis land (ie: the annual ANU 'high school musical') and Jason paid $250 to learn he doesn't have to have surgery (yay!). There's only a little bit of 'old people complaining about their health' in the first bit before they listen to a speak pipe from Tseen …
 
Inger and Jason are both complaining about their health again. Jason has 'mild degeneration' of his shoulder joint and Inger has 'mild degeneration' of her eye lens. The duo agree that it means they are falling apart, but as Jason says ' slowly'. After the whinging about health, and a few things about the Jeep/Tesla/Tinny there 's a bit about acade…
 
Inger and Jason catch up on Inger's 24th wedding anniversary (with Mr Thesis Whisperer's permission!). Inger went to Newcastle in the Tesla and had fun doing a workshop in a bathroom. It's been a weird couple of weeks: she also encountered giant animatronic wombats on the lawns of parliament house while taking part in an NTEU event. Jason's had Cov…
 
Jason has Novid now, but he dragged himself to the mic. Inger’s been sick again and, honestly - the first 20 minutes or so of this podcast is just ‘old people complaining about their health’ (but we know some of you really like that stuff, so we left it in). Katherine Firth rings in (18m:17s) to give Jason another romance novel recommendation for t…
 
Jason and Inger are behind on their podcasting schedule because Inger had Not-Covid/ Not-flu and too sick to record last Sunday. Meanwhile Jason has injured himself at Brazilian Ju Jitsu - again. Jason texts a picture of his inner thigh to Inger, live on air, to show her the damage. She is shocked (not at the body part itself, because she lives wit…
 
Inger and Jason are back to their usual format now the election is done. This is the first weekend in 18 months that Inger doesn't have any political activism planned for the weekend - and she is happy about the election result because a well hung parliament is a good parliament in her book (totally worth a 6 vodka hang over). Meanwhile, Jason has …
 
Warning - there's a LOT of swearing in this one, so if there are sensitive little ears present, maybe save it till later... We recorded this on the 10th of April as Scott Morrison called the election. It's another short one as Inger was already deep in campaigning for the Greens, We did manage to cover a lot of ground though (actually, it's not tha…
 
We've been busy, but you know - in a good way. Inger and Jason are both exhausterated - both exhausted and exhilarated at the same time. Sort of like how you feel after a good workout. Jason has started his new job at Latrobe, where he has an office above the pub and #awesometeam. Meanwhile Inger has a huge face to face teaching thing after 2 years…
 
Warning - there's a lot of swearing in this one, so maybe shield from sensitive little ears... Jason is between jobs, which means he's nearly killing his family on a hike and getting suits delivered. Oh - and reading Cal Newport's book 'So good they can't ignore you'. Meanwhile Inger is surprised she hasn't caught Covid at any of the 50 year old bi…
 
This episode of On the Reg is slightly delayed because of children being stranded in Western Port Bay, internet upload speeds and an ill-advised attempt to record in the evening after work. In other words, it took time to get our shit together (and not just because we are both now over 50 and the government is starting to show an interest in the co…
 
Content warning! In this episode we talk briefly about anxiety and addiction. If either of those two topics are not your thing today, click away friend! Jason and Inger are back from holidays - if you can call it that. December and January were marred by the Omicron Surge which, like all bad sci-fi novels, has produced a lot of boredom. Inger made …
 
Jason and Inger are on summer holidays! This episode is one Inger recorded last year with Mark Carrigan and Tyler shores. There's lot of nerdy stuff about productivity in here, including name checking a whole lot of note taking apps. We kept this one in the can for the summer break and it has fresh resonance now that Australia seems to be in the 't…
 
It's been a busy couple of weeks leading up to the end of the year for both Inger and Jason. There's a lot of cars on their respective work highways. While Inger was 'snappish', Jason suddenly found himself Overwhelmed by everything. Jason describes his terrible, no good Tuesday and tells Inger how he ate hot chips, went to afternoon Brazillian JuJ…
 
What is your brain on writing? Anitra, Narelle and Megan have gone off on other projects, leaving Inger in charge of the podcast feed. She got bored, so she made a new podcast with Paul Magee, who teaches poetry and research at the University of Canberra, unpick the science of reading and writing with the help of Rosie, Isaac and Tara, undergraduat…
 
Inger had a unexpected visit to the hospital and Jason had trouble getting the tinny out to sea and back again, so it was quite a week for the On The Reg Team. Full of the dramas. Inger digs out a paper her 'interesting shit' folder on Zotero, which is basically stuff she found while Jason was on #epictrip and saved for later. The findings of the p…
 
Jason and Inger finally have time to really catch up properly... with a well over 2 hour conversation... Inger edited it down to 1 hour 53, so hey - listen in segments? Crank it up for a long session of housework or gardening? Go for a really long run? We believe in you! It's long because frankly, there was a lot of backed up conversation to be had…
 
Jason just got back from 14 weeks driving around Australia on #epictrip2021! So it seemed like a good idea to throw him right into podcasting via a live key note for Australian Educational Podcast Conference 2021. The event was called "Planning for podcasting: dissecting the process", so we did a normal On The Reg... but with a time limit, in front…
 
Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining the last episode - The Chair. In the last episode, unresolved sexual tension (UST) is resolved (sort of). Punishment is delivered (kind of) and, as is the way in almost every contemporary romance novel, every one is Happ…
 
Inger recorded this guestapooloza version of On The Reg just before Canberra was locked down... as she says in the pod "things might change before you hear this". Luckily her guest was Narelle Lemon from the Wellbeing Whisperer, who was able to impact many relaxation tips. Inger is crap at relaxing, so Narelle's suggestions were extremely helpful. …
 
Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining episode four: 'The last bus in town'. We're joined, again, for this episode by Dr Bertha Chin, senior lecturer from the Swinburne University of Technology in Sarawak, Malaysia. Bertha ups our intellectual heft as a schol…
 
Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining episode four: 'Don't Kill Bill'. We're joined for this episode by Dr Bertha Chin, senior lecturer from the Swinburne University of Technology in Sarawak, Malaysia. Bertha ups our intellectual heft as a scholar of fan stu…
 
After hearing briefly from Jason, who seems to be making progress on his digital detox, Inger is joined by Dr Ben Kraal. Ben used to be an academic, but escaped into the wilds of UX consulting where he makes a very nice living - but still runs an excellent academic-ish newsletter on the side which is called '1992'. Ben tells Inger about the inspira…
 
Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining episode three: The Town Hall. Once again we're joined for this episode by Professor Pauline Reynolds who is a legitimate expert on representations of academics in popular culture. She's even written books and stuff! You …
 
Inger, Megan, Anitra and Narelle continue their episode by episode forensic examination of 'The Chair'. This time we're examining episode two: the faculty party. We are joined for this episode by Professor Pauline Reynolds who is a legitimate expert on representations of academics in popular culture. She's even written books and stuff! You can find…
 
It feels like every academic in the world has a hot take on the new Netflix show 'The Chair'. Opinions are divided, and, in that academic way we know and love, everyone thinks they're right. We’re a bunch of academics in lockdown here in Australia and we're bored, so we decided to make a podcast about The Chair because, well, why not? We're taking …
 
Inger has a guest host while @Jasondowns is gallivanting his way around Australia on #epictrip2021. Tseen Khoo (@tseenster) from the Research Whisperer Blog joins Inger to talk about a topic that gets them both fired up: networking. They share their networking tips and techniques, especially the stuff that works online during Covid times when the d…
 
It's the last episode of On the Reg before Jason goes on #epictrip2021 but don't worry - Inger will keep the ship afloat with a guesthostapolooza until he returns. Before he leaves Jason just has a bit more marking to do as well as tricking out the Jeep. Inger is relieved her dislocated toe no longer looks like a balloon animal and that Thesis Whis…
 
This week Inger is joined by Jonathan O'Donnell from the Research Whisperer as Jason is still away on #epictrip2021. Jonathan has given us lots of suggestions for On The Reg, so now is the time to talk to him directly! We start off talking about why innovation is hard inside universities, which have been fine tuned to avoid waste and increase trans…
 
Jason is wondering how long he is going to be constrained to a 25km radius as he tries to plan #epictrip2021 around Australia. Meanwhile Inger's Tesla is complaining about a cold battery. While Jason contemplates 14 weeks off work for long service leave, Inger is powering on with her PostAc work (you can find out more about the PostAc project here)…
 
Jason has been in #markinghell, but dreaming of his #epictrip2021 (which you can follow on Instagram!). Meanwhile Inger took a break and drove through spider rain in Victoria before dislocating her toe in NSW. So - it's been busy. Jason goes long and deep on procrastination again - this time looking at different sorts of procrastination and educati…
 
Inger and Jason are very touched by a lovely message Chad left on Speakpipe - we ate the praise up like delicious yogurt. Jason and Shainul took the tinny on a last cruise before winter and proudly reports that he can fit back into his Brazillian Ju Jitzu gear. Inger has succeeded in a science experiment, and worried ThesisWhisperer Jnr by not havi…
 
Where Inger and Jason release an emergency broadcast in support of everyone who is working through conditions which have heightened levels of difficulty. Jason has just heard that the snap lockdown announced in Melbourne a week ago has just been extended for another 7 days (and maybe more). This got Jason and Inger thinking - how do you cope with t…
 
Inger and Jason both enjoyed a brief Easter break, but for different reasons. Inger has been zooming around in her new baby (the Tesla) while Jason has been participating in an intense hot cross bun competition. Inger is looking forward to a planned writing retreat in an Instagram ready barn conversion to write her romance novels while Jason is bac…
 
Inger was too scared to drive her new Tesla and Jason was scared he'd lost his drone at sea. Luckily Jason did not have to tell Cath the boy toy went missing and at least Thesis Whisperer Jnr thinks Inger's new book Level Up Your Essays is 'not that boring'. We take up the challenge, put to us by a sadly anonymous listener on SpeakPipe, to talk abo…
 
Jason's been sailing around in his tinny (with and without thongs) and Dj'ing on a ship that only serves vegan pizzas. Inger ordered a mid life crisis car and is looking forward to driving her new Tesla on sunlight and unicorn farts. In this episode we do a synchronised deep dive on the Bullet Journal (#bujo) method by Ryder Carroll. We talk about …
 
Inger and Jason have both been dealing with challenges. For Inger it's finding time to work on her romance novels when doing a 37.5 hour week entirely on Zoom. She did, however, manage to get on Etsy and buy angry uterus stickers for her bullet journal. Jason is in Covid lockdown - again! But at least he got to take the tinny (that's a small, metal…
 
Inger and Jason are now fully back at work. Jason is is relieved people have welcomed him back into his new/old job and got his boat license so he can cruise around Port Phillip Bay. Inger has re-activated her noodle-eating lunching coven, who are keen on her making good on her threat to write a series of Canberra based romance novels called the Pr…
 
Inger and jason have had a holiday - sort of. A lot of it seemed to involve making a dash for state borders before they closed... Jason bought a drone and Inger bought a mid life crisis car. In our work problems segment, Inger goes deep on the problem of rest, specifically, why she finds it hard and why that's not her fault. The discussion ranges b…
 
It's our last episode for 2020 (don't worry, we'll be back. Jason can't get out of it now). Jason is finishing one job and starting another with a listening tour. The Jeep just got another upgrade with a lighting bar that promises to shine like 1000 suns - as soon as he gets the electrician in. He's looking forward to his holiday in South Australia…
 
This recording was made from a live taping session during 'Whisperfest 2020' in front of a live crowd of around 70 people on Zoom. In this episode, Jason and Inger tell their origin story, although they argue about the dried apricot analogy bit. Inger outs Jason as being 'Dave' in her most popular Thesis Whisperer post ever: 'The Valley of Shit'. D…
 
We start by taking a moment to acknowledge that The Trump presidency has come to an end, ignominiously, in front of a landscape gardening gardening business, next to the 'Fantasy Island' adult bookstore in downtown Philly. Inger cried! How good is the first woman being a VP in the USA?! And how amazingly great is it that she's not white? As Inger's…
 
Jason is emerging from Lockdown, getting a long over due hair cut and having cross-town adventures in his Jeep. Inger is despairing over Thesis Whisperer Jnr's decision to 'rest' from Uni again and tells us how she misread an important dress code by turning up to a Greens party celebration in Liberal party blue. Both of us agree that not much work …
 
This episode carries a content warning... best not to listen if hearing about the pain of losing a job is triggering for you. Jason's job has been 'dis-established' and we get real with the state of universities and what it's like to lose a job you love. In this epic, no holds barred discussion Inger recounts her perception-shifting experience of b…
 
Lockdown continues in Melbourne, but Jason is looking forward to being able to visit his mother in law without being arrested for breaching the Victorian lockdown 5km travel limits. Inger is struggling to tell the difference between Canberra spring hayfever and Covid, as well as the agony of watching her son, who is doing first year uni and not spe…
 
We start with Inger's aborted holiday in a cottage in the country when Thesis Whisperer Jnr and Mr Thesis Whisperer had to be tested for Covid (it's ok, they both had colds, but it's not a pandemic unless you have had something stuck up your nose). Jason is counting the days to the end of the pandemic and smelling the spring flowers as RMIT announc…
 
This podcast was the first one recorded with Zencastr, which makes for a slightly nervewracking beginning, but the duo quickly hit their stride. Jason is enduring the Melbourne Covid hard lock down while Inger feels vaguely guilty for being able to get away from the ACT and eat croissants in a country cottage. At work, Jason ponders the problem of …
