Radio Europe Interview

On Tuesday, July 1, I was a guest on the Boland show on Radio Europe Mediterraneo, the largest English language radio station in Spain. The producer of the show contacted me after researching child labor in India and coming across my website and book. The twenty-minute interview was a discussion about the various sides of child labor in India and the conflicting issues surrounding how to get children out of the workforce.

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."

  1. Yea, Shelley! You sounded so put together and well prepared on the radio. Very proud of what you’re doing. And congrats on the Top 100!

  2. Once again, Shelley, I cannot tell you how proud I am of you as a mother and also as a human being aching for the children you love and support so whole-heartedly. I have just finished listening to your radio interview and was extremely impressed with the way you conducted yourself and the vast knowledge you shared. I’ve always known you possessed these qualities, but to see and hear it in action overwhelms me. It makes me feel that my life has had meaning as well if I could have, in even a small way, contributed to the compassionate, intelligent person you have become. Not only seeing the problems of the world; but, unlike most of us, actually going into that world and actively trying to make changes. It makes my heart full to know you are my daughter.
