St Edward's College: A Radio-worthy experience

On the 18th of May 2022, I had the opportunity to experience what it would be like to work in the radio, podcast and webinar industry. I was asked as College Capitan to give a student’s perspective in Newsbook’s webinar on education in Malta and in the EU. 

It has been a dream of mine to write, perform and air my own podcast since my introduction to podcasts and radio - this experience being my first actual time speaking on an aired program. The experience was better than anything I could have imagined, the microphones, lighting, topic, and room of people with different views on the same topic. The program was centred around education, speaking about topics such as robotics and AI in teaching and the importance and disregard of certain subjects. Towards the end of the program, I was asked “if you could change one thing or add something to the educational system, what would it be” and since I was presenting a student’s point of view, I spoke about my concern with lack of regard towards life skills - not just learning what we will need for our careers, but for life. 

I have been a fan of radio and podcasts since I first heard Orson Welles’s broadcast on racism, aired in 1946, over my grandfather’s favourite historical podcast. From there, I began listening to more recent podcasts such as Crime Junkie, History of Everything and Zane and Heath: Unfiltered. This experience is one I will never forget, and I will certainly be returning to the microphone in the future!
