KPE Episode 100 - "Down in the Dump With Dinsmore" by Margaret Mahy
This is a big day for KPE because we have come a long way since August 2005 - and we have read a lot of books! When we first started out we hardly knew what podcasting was and now we are experts! Go Pt England!
In this episode Lorenz tells us about "Down in the Dump With Dinsmore" and Rakai has his first venture into podcasting as the DJ. Dinsmore, the hero of this story, loves exploring the great merry-go-round of the world. It is such an interesting place! But his parents don't agree and his school principal complains. Nobody, it seems, wants to know about the dump. Except Dinsmore - and he discovers some interesting things at the dump - including things his principal didn't want discovered...
Lorenz says; "I really enjoyed reading it because just like my moral says (in the podcast) it doesn't matter what you are like on the outside, it's what's on the inside that counts. I also learnt that when you explore lots of different places you find things that are interesting."
Today was also a big day for the school community because there was an article in the NZ Herald about our podcasters and Lorenz had his photo there, with Braxton, and he was interviewed by the reporter.
This is what he writes about that experience; " My Mum and Dad will be very proud of me for being in the paper. Just from telling people about podcasting got me into this! And by doing podcasts I'm not shy anymore to go in front of the school to do something..."
