Chatting With Jennifer Lynn | Radio Life | Morning Show | Travel And More
Some of you know that I went on sabbatical mid of 2019, and one of the places that we visited was Marrakesh in Morroco. My friend Anass Koudies recommended a traditional cocking workshop outside the city, so I and the family went there, and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Marrakesh. One of the people that I got to know in the workshop was Jennifer Lynn, host of the Morning Edition on NPR radio. She was playing with our son and later in the day I got to know she's a professional radio host. We talked about podcasting, radio and so many stuff. When we returned to our home in Riyadh, I asked Jan to come to the show and talk about radio life. I wanted to know what it is like to wake up every day at 3:30 AM ! and boy, I was so intimidated having a professional host on my show! The voice quality is okay, but not perfect.
Chatting With Maxim Cramer | Design And Engineering | Languages | Open Source | Diversity
Today I chat with Maxim Cramer. A creative person who mingle between design and engineerings. I met Maxim back in February when I joined the AltMBA program, which is a program by Seth Godin for the people who want to level up. What was different about Maxim her take on a lot of stuff which can be explained by the way she grew up. I talked with Maxim about diversity, languages, being yourself and how a person such herself can help with “lost in translation” situations. We relate those topics to Maxim experience in working in different companies and being involved in communities such as the open source community. Enjoy the show

Chatting With Eva-Lotta Lamm | Sketchnoting | Traveling around the world | Improv
So who’s Eva-lotta? Eva-Lotta Lamm is a User Experience Designer, illustrator, and visual thinker. She grew up in Germany, worked in Paris and London for a few years before packing up her backpack and go traveling the world for 14 months. She has over 12 years of experience working on digital products as an in-house designer for Google, Skype, and Yahoo! as well as freelancing and consulting for various agencies and her own clients. After being a (semi-)nomad for 2 years, she is now based in Berlin, helping her clients to make complex problems visual so they can ‘see’ them from a fresh perspective and work on solving them more efficiently.
We talk about how she got into art, and how she moved to Paris and then London. How one day she packed her bags to travel around the world. We chat about working for corporates vs freelancing and then we stumble upon note-taking and how she recorded her reflections through sketch noting and finally how she feels about paper vs. digital. Not just that, we talked about improv and some deep stuff like bringing awareness in the learning process which Eva-lotta call the intentional practice. Really deep stuff. I think you guys gonna enjoy this episode. So .. get a notebook ready and please enjoy my conversation with Eva-Lotta.
