  1. As someone who can’t participate in these rewatches in real time, I’ll give a huge thank you to Kat Karena. That was very much appreciated!

  2. Thanks to Kat Karena for the video. I don’t do social media so I’m out of luck. Both Melissa and Melanie seem so very nice. If the rest of the cast and crew were just as nice it is no wonder you miss working on DM, Joe. And it often comes down from the top (ie. Joe the creator/producer) what the atmosphere will be on the production, so it’s no wonder they are so nice. A bit of a circular argument that has kind of got a way from me…

  3. I recorded today’s as well. I’m not sure whether to upload it. Excuse me I’m not really Instagram savvy, I think Melissa may have recorded it? But I can’t find it on Instagram when I look on the web via PC, but it’s got an icon to go to on my phone. It was a really fun interview and I would love to hear more from Ron, there was part of his talk that I’m sharing with my trainees – when he spoke about the differences of learning from doing as to going to school. In the IT start-up community we always talk about ‘fail fast’ as the fastest way to learn. And I always say F.A.I.L stands for First Attempt In Learning.
    As my kids know I’m not a fan of school at all, I think its way over rated – we dive into the deep end by doing, it’s scarier, more engaging, involves everything not just your head – much more fun and a much faster way to learn.

    All of Ron’s books, pictures etc. and experiences were so interesting, yes, I would definitely love if there could be more interviews with Ron.

    1. I uploaded the first hour of Melissa O’Neil and Ron Murphy’s interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0rIqCcGbVQ

      I find Instagram confusing, I can’t find the first hour on Melissa’s Instagram page, but can find the additional 16 minutes by clicking on the arrow button on her profile icon, but it doesn’t go next to the preceding hour? It’s a rather annoying application.
      Anyhoo, I wanted to share with the kids the bit where Ron and Melissa are talking about learning, so YouTube is easier for that.
