No Right Thing ft. Laura Langston

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Today on the Launch Pod, we head out to Qualicum Beach, British Columbia to catch up with acclaimed journalist and author, Laura Langston. She’s the author of 22 books for children and young people, and her latest offering, No Right Thing was released during the pandemic. It begins with a decision to move someone out of harm’s way but takes the reader on an exploration of themes of trust, ethical decision-making and having the courage to be your authentic self.
