The Slow Cooked Breakfast Show

With Paul, Kevin & Louisa

Join Paul, Kevin & Louisa for chat, laughter, games, great music (if you love Prog Rock), Louisa's Thinky Bits, some special guests and conversations about the best vacancies in education.


Paul Dix

Paul has been a radio addict from an early age. His formative years were spent listening to phone-in shows until the early hours under the duvet. In the teenage years this early exposure became a gateway to a more serious Radio 4 addiction. Something he managed to hide from his closest family and friends, even during the Rave years.

Paul has dabbled in amateur radio (AKA The Greasy Chip) and for a time went deep into Podcasting (The Pivotal Podcast). Now firmly in denial, Paul has launched a Radio Station with fellow radio addict Kevin Mulryne. He can mostly be found walking Scrabble the dog, writing books and advising Headteachers on Behaviour.


Kevin Mulryne

Kevin began his career as a primary teacher in Warwickshire. After a few years in the physical classroom, he moved to the virtual classroom, establishing the world’s first blended learning system for children away from school for medical reasons. He taught ICT via an embryonic webinar system in 2000 and developed one of the first virtual learning environments before the terminology even existed.

Subsequently, Kevin has worked for national educational bodies like Becta (the government ICT agency disbanded in 2010), National College for Teaching and Leadership and DfE.

In his spare time(!) he began podcasting in 2010 and now produces shows for himself and clients as well as creating a portable audiobook studio which he takes to authors’ homes (pre-COVID) to help them record audio versions of their own books.



Louisa was born in Brighton in 1970-something and currently teaches RE in Surrey.  She was raised a Catholic and later joined the Protestant Church, but now does not follow any religion and remains agnostic about the existence of God.

She went to Birmingham University to study theology from 1996-1999 and became an RE teacher upon graduation. Within her twenty-years’ teaching experience she has taught philosophy, ethics, and religion in both state and private schools. 

The reality of modern teaching is that often an educator’s time is spent in meetings, dealing with paperwork, reports and answering a never-ending stream of emails. She started a podcast in October 2020 to give her the opportunity to do what she loves best; talk about real, modern issues with no assessments, no homework, and no marking!

When she is not working, looking after her two children or doing the podcast, she can be found doing yoga or geeking out on movies.

Louisa hosts The RE Podcast, the first dedicated podcast for RE teachers and students. It is listened to  across Europe, the Americas, Africa and Australasia and covers topics related to Religion, Ethics and Philosophy with some excellent guests.
