MissionCreep #10: Jargon, mentoring and festivals

To kick off your week, Brendan Rigby and Weh Yeoh join guest host Leah Davies, the founder of Paper Planes Connect, to bring you fresh and frank voices in global development.

In this latest MissionCreep podcast, our presenters chat about how jargon is used–and can be better used–in development, the benefits of having a mentor (particularly a younger one) and if/how popular festivals can address global poverty.

Listen as you commute, exercise, cook or relax, and let us know what you think. Is our jargon a hindrance to development? Should mentoring be commonplace amongst development practitioners? How can poverty alleviation-driven festivals be improved?

Leave a comment here or on Facebook, e-mail us at info[AT]whydev[DOT]org or use the hashtag #MissionCreepDev on Twitter. We’ll respond online or on the next episode of the podcast.

You can also listen to the podcast here or download it on iTunes.
