Already in week ten of Remote Year Aurora! Today I turn to the “data” side of justdatawithasoul to sum up some of my experiences, with some help from Ambrose Bierce.
Transition Day last Saturday – spent the day in the air and in airports (COR > SCL > LIM), so that’s caused another 12 hour delay in the release time.
In today’s episode: airports, observations, group dynamics, thinking about connections moving forward, and another Brene Brown quote. Here she is at Super Soul Sessions talking about the Anatomy of Trust (not where the quote comes from, but thematically relevant)
- Shamelessly pulling from Phil Collins’ Tarzan soundtrack for this week’s episode title
- Glowtrotter guest Gunther (check out his blog here) as well as snippets from my sister (again)
- Screenplay character interview and recounting my last day in the sierras in my last week in Argentina
- Quotes from The Mysterious Benedict Society and Thomas Buechner
- Post-credits outtakes from the interview
(audio is pretty much same as the show notes, but I recorded it for anyone who just gets podcast updates and doesn’t check this site 🙂 )
Hola from Cordoba!
So as you may have noticed, there has not been a new jdwas episode this week. Last week my sister was in town, so much of my time was spent with her and not working on this week’s podcast. I have an episode (mostly) written, but family and work (rightly) took priority this week. Thank you for your patience as I figure out how best to communicate with you about the status of episodes and expectations for the release schedule.
I wanted to get the episode originally scheduled for the 19th of February out Monday, then yesterday, then today, but I think–for my own sanity–I will release this episode on the 26th of February (this coming Monday) instead. This will allow me to “get back on the horse”, i.e. my regular Monday morning release schedule and maintain consistency going forward.
If you have any questions, comments, or stories to share on the podcast, please drop me a note (written or record some audio) at firstname.lastname@example.org – hope to hear from you all!
Talk to you next week <3
Experimenting with atmospheric audio recorded during last week’s hackathon as well as the podcast’s first outtake track, which features my sister and the sounds of the cars on the street outside.
Water: physical and metaphorical, and yep, some more Remote Year reflections
Many thanks to Ellyn for joining me for today’s lively conversation on personal identification, habits, changing your mind and values, graduate school, family, imposter syndrome, and a whole bunch more.
p.s. pro tip to anyone starting a podcast with their phone as their recording device: mute your notifications when recording. There’s a bonus chime in this episode that I haven’t mastered the skills to edit out yet 😉
This past weekend I was moving from Buenos Aires to Cordoba. Because of this, I’ve not yet finished editing this week’s podcast episode, though it will be uploaded later today. It’s a chat I had with fellow Remote Ellyn – you can get a sneak peek of what she’s all about on her website. Cannot wait to share it with you all 😀
Many events to reflect on this week, and ready or not the world keeps turning and there’s more to come. Let’s go.
Mentioned in today’s episode:
And if you’re not familiar with Klaus, Sunny, and Violet, A Series of Unfortunate Events was one of my favorite series growing up. Here’s the wiki page.
