4: Special Episode: Where Next for Nonprofits?
We interrupt our usual three-part series to bring you a very special podcast episode on the future of our sector. As we take some tentative steps back towards "normal" life, what have we learned from a year of crisis? Join us for a new 20-minute episode of The Good Stuff, where policy expert Dr Shana Cohen (TASC) and public affairs consultant John Gallagher weigh in on the big lessons of the COVID crisis for Irish nonprofits.

3: Human Conversations — The Language of Empathy
To round out our exploration of language and the nonprofit community, in this episode we're looking at empathy. Many of us in the nonprofit community work on behalf of other people, and few would contest the importance of keeping them at the centre of our work at all times. But although we're always working with this goal in mind, it can be a challenge to make sure that our language always reflects this reality. In the first section of today’s podcast, our guest is public affairs consultant Kathleen O’Meara. Our second guest is Laura Murphy, a poet, activist, camapigner, and communications strategist — and an outspoken advocate for survivors of Mother and Baby Homes in Ireland.

2: Say What You Mean — Plain English for Nonprofits
This is the second episode of our three-part series about language and the nonprofit sector. Today, we’re all about keeping it simple and saying what you mean. Our guest is Sean Driver, who works with the National Adult Literacy Agency as their plain English editor, and he explains why it's so important to use straightforward language whenever we can.

1: Words Matter — The Language of Nonprofits
The language of the nonprofit sector is constantly shifting, and in this series of The Good Stuff we’re looking at why that matters. In episode 1, we first talk to experts about why words matter, and how they affect the way that we perceive the world. Then we sit down with the Wheel’s own CEO, Deirdre Garvey, to discuss charities, community groups, voluntary organisations, social enterprises... and why so many terms exist that seem, from the outside, to describe the same thing.

3: Series 2:3. Organisational Resilience During COVID-19 — HR and Fundraising for Nonprofits
Episode 3 of The Good Stuff tackles the resilience of organisations. As we face a period of economic uncertainty, we speak to Sarah Fagan from Adare Human Resource Management about what employers should keep in mind as their employees begin the return to work (or not), and Keith Whelan, “The Grants Guy”, about planning for financial resilience in 2021

2: Series 2:2. Resilience vs Resistance — Keeping Social Change on the Agenda During COVID-19
In this episode, we look at the resilience of ideas. At the start of the COVID-19 crisis, community was at the forefront of the national conversation, and there has been widespread acknowledgement that any recovery must focus on creating an economy that serves society as opposed to a society that serves the economy. But how can we resist pushback against this as the longer-term financial impacts of the crisis start to manifest? And how do we sustain the momentum of the moment to create concrete, positive policy change? We speak to Michelle Murphy from Social Justice Ireland and Claire Brophy from the Abortion Rights Campaign about policy, activism, and proven strategies for change.

1: Series 2: 1. Resilience in Theory and in Practice
The ability to spring back from adversity and recover quickly from difficulties is often termed “resilience”. In this series of The Good Stuff, we examine resilience from the perspective of our sector. What does it mean for organisations and individuals to be resilient during the COVID-19 crisis? How do we develop resilience, and — just as importantly — how do we maintain it when times get tough? In series 2, episode 1, we sit down with Peter McBride, Director of the Cohen Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, to get his perspective on resilience as a concept and what is important for organisations right now. We also speak with Stephanie Manahan, CEO of the Central Remedial Clinic, who lead the CRC through a transformative time and offers her insights into dealing with large-scale change.

Finally, at a very practical level, we look at resilience from a more operational perspective, considering HR and fundraising concerns that organisations may be facing right now.You can download the series starting in September from wheel.ie or your usual podcast source.
