Today our Podcast revolves around Domestic Arts. It is actually a Management position that had been downplayed for years. In the 50’s and 60’s, schools taught Home Economics. The courses taught adolescents the relevance of contributing and learning skills to become independent. They were refined at home. Later the term domestic engineers was given to mainly women who took their home economic skills to the next level.
Domestic engineers were then and continue to be needed in making our homes warm and hospitable. Linda and Kate discuss the evolution of these skills. Whether they pertain to men or women, they are much needed in our society today. Those of us who know them well need to be instrumental in teaching and passing them on to the next
