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.
Remote Year Aurora, end of week 2: Buenos Aires and speaking a language vs. communicating
Bit late getting this episode out; meant to have it uploaded Friday, but between my first week working from Buenos Aires and general Remote Year orientation events I had to keeping push uploading the episode later and later. Finally made the time!
While this episode is centered on myself and some of my background coming to the program, I have been meeting and getting to know my fellow RY18 Remotes over the past few days. I’ve had a couple people express interest in perhaps appearing on or even contributing episodes of their own to this podcast. Stay tuned for further updates from Remote Year Aurora here–the episodes are now available through Apple Podcasts and Google Play Podcasts, and if you have a different podcast app, I’m sure you’d be able to listen there as well.
I’ve only had six full days with these humans, but it feels like so much longer. This year is going to be so full of love and life and laughter. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
