Guest: Pat McCay is a talented singer songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa. Best known for his folk-inspired, bluesy and lyrically rich tunes, his musical talents and captivating voice have seen him play major festivals and venues in SA since 2010. Pat wrote Six String of Love to encapsulate a lot of his journey as a human being and singer songwriter. It reflects parts of his process and shines a light on what he witnesses in day to day life. It also speaks of other worldly inspiration and a love for ones instrument as vehicle to also spread love, hence the name : Six String of Love Previously performing with the band, Two Minute Puzzle, Pat's musical journey has evolved greatly, much like he has. His magnetic stage presence, charming and entertaining demeanour, coupled with his ability to shift between joy and vulnerability in quick succession, make both him and his path deeply relatable. In addition, his songwriting reflects a raw, poetic and deeply soulful storyteller, with a good story to tell. In 2011, his song ‘Water' earned him a top spot on 5fm, an indication of the true and largely untapped potential of this down-to-earth homegrown artist. Pat has just wrapped up his fourth album (second under his solo project) to be released on the 18th of November 2021. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

John's under the weather this week, and Lina and Dan start off with a follow up on the IATSE strike, where a tentative agreement was reached by the bargaining committee over the weekend but may not be ratified when the membership gets to vote. We also check in with Starbucks Workers United as the company has closed two of the stores that had been attempting to unionize, while insisting that it has nothing to do with the union drive. Also this week, Netflix employees plan a walkout after an organizer with the company's Trans Employee Resource Group was fired in the wake of worker complaints about the handling of the recent Dave Chappelle special. Over 160,000 workers in South Africa's biggest union are on strike for fairer wages, and threaten to completely shut down the country's lucrative auto parts industry. The biggest US strike of the year so far is underway as 10,000 UAW workers at John Deere are on the picket lines in three states, and the company is struggling to find enough scabs to keep plants open.

My guest in this episode is Mark Harrison. A friend of a previous guest Dan French, Mark listened to episode 52 and liked it so much he decided he wanted to come on the show, which is a process that always pleases me. In amongst the music we talk about: · His Grandfather's houseboat, Calisto, on the Grand Union Canal · Born in West London in 1962 then moving to South Africa as a 10-year-old. · Returning from that strict and strait-laced environment four years later to a UK at the height of the punk era· Getting his black belt in Kick Boxing at the age of 42 · Becoming a mature student and graduating with a BA Hons at the age of 47 · Starting a I year contract in the Czech Republic in 2005 and never leaving! · Marrying Daria in 2010 · Starting his own company (called Calisto) in 2012 · The delights of train travel in Europe · And last but not least, the joy of Bruce Springsteen and seeing him live in Vienna, Prague & Berlin. Like myself, Mark doesn't just listen to Bruce, and he made some great song choices for this episode: 60's The Beatles Michelle 70's Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 80's Bruce Springsteen Hungry Heart 90's Genesis I Can't Dance 00's Kylie Minogue Can't Get You Out of My Head 10's Emeli Sande Breathing Under Water 20's Texas Mr Haze We also touched on a wide range of artists and songs during our chat , all of whom can be found in this playlist https://open.spotify.com/playlist/41TCP4zadSAHK8WjVS7cZV?si=c9fb1cff028746d3 Enjoy!
For experts like coaches and consultants, it's easy to get trapped in a business that doesn't fit us. In the real estate business, Mike Ferry is still going out and speaking to live audiences and real estate offices in his 80's. That's the lifestyle he wants, but it's not what I want. On the flip side, some experts set the goal of a business that runs without them and throws off a high profit that allows them to essentially retire. Richard Koch is a great example of this. He works a few hours in the morning in communication with leaders of the companies he's invested in. That leaves the rest of the day to think, write, ride his book or tool around his property in South Africa. He does no 1-on-1 coaching or mentoring, it's all through the books he writes and interviews he gives. For me, I want something in the middle. I genuinely enjoy the client work of helping people figure out their marketing strategy, their messaging, their ideal client they want to attract, the Point of View they want to put into the world, the big, valuable problem they want to solve. That's where I get the sense of fulfillment and impact. So my ideal business doesn't take me out of that work, it just adds a ton of leverage. (Side note: if you're on the introverted side like me, we need leverage. We don't get energy back from all of our social interactions, so we need to get more out of each interaction. That's leverage.) So the question for this episode is, What do you REALLY want?

In today's episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Radhika Dutt, as we talk about the five elements of a radical product. Radhika is an entrepreneur and product leader who has participated in four acquisitions, two of which were companies that she founded. Radhika is also the author of Radical Product Thinking: The New Mindset for Innovating Smarter. Feel free to check it out!For a Better SocietyIn whatever we build, we must think of how it impacts society, as told by Radhika. Looking back to when she was living in South Africa and saw the shift from apartheid to democracy, Radhika was interested in Nelson Mandela's nuanced message to the whole population. It was not about getting revenge but about figuring out what went wrong. Today in the digital age, Radhika thinks that the rise of social media is polarizing because it has eroded nuance in society. She wrote in her book that society must be at the forefront of whatever product we build since everything affects people – the basic unit of society. But, in a much simpler sense, we have to think about the change we want to create. Radhika says that when we build products, we often make digital pollution. To avoid creating that collateral damage, we must take a vision-driven approach. Whether it is about South Africa's transition to democracy or building a product, there must be a clear picture of the world we envision at the end of what we have built.Equitable WorldIn creating an equitable world, Radhika has four questions that need to be answered. First, who is coming to you and what is their problem? Second, what is the solution to their problem? Third, how will we enable or power that solution? And lastly, how do we deliver the solution? But Radhika says that the first question is really the most crucial of them all. To create an equitable world, we have to think equitably, not in a limited perspective. If we do, then we are only solving the problem of a small group of people and not considering how it affects the larger group. That is the piece we are often missing out on. We have to put into consideration how our product affects different kinds of people.About Radhika Dutt:Radhika Dutt is the author of the upcoming book, Radical Product Thinking: The New Mindset for Innovating Smarter. She is an entrepreneur and product leader who has participated in four acquisitions, two of which were companies that she founded. She advises organizations from high-tech startups to government agencies on building radical products that create a fundamental change.Outline of the episode:[02:56] What shaped Radhika's career?[04:34] Things seen from the big picture that changed people's mindsets and worldviews[08:08] The strategy that a product can be applied to everyone in an equitable format[30:29] How to deal with resistance and people who do not share the same worldview[37:24] About Radical Product Thinking: The New Mindset for Innovating SmarterResources:Website: https://www.radicalproduct.com/Book: https://www.amazon.com/Radical-Product-Thinking-Mindset-Innovating/dp/1523093315/Connect with Tayo Rockson and the As Told By Nomads Podcast on:Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcastPersonal Website: https://tayorockson.com/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Marjorie Jackson was a multi-millionaire who didn't trust banks. So, when she discovered that a high ranking bank employee had stolen from her, she took action. Over the course of four months, she showed up at the bank with a suitcase or a couple of grocery bags and made massive cash withdrawals. She took out millions of dollars and hid the money in her modest Indianapolis home. People worried about Marjorie. It didn't seem safe for a 66-year-old woman to live alone, surrounded by millions of dollars in cash. It wasn't. Then Brandi tells us about a pair of newlyweds whose honeymoon ended in murder. Anni Hindocha and Shrien Dewani were a beautiful couple. They married at Lake Powai near Mumbai, India, and afterward, went on a whirlwind honeymoon to South Africa. They started their trip with a few nights at Kruger National Park, followed by a trip to Cape Town. Once they got there, they met a driver named Zola Tongo. He told the couple he'd be their tour guide. On the ride back from dinner one night, two men hijacked the car. And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia.

Most people are familiar with the movie “The Exorcism” and perhaps you are familiar with the story that inspired the movie itself. But the story of Clara Germana Cele has been seemingly forgotten in the over 100 years since it happened. This story also played quite the role in The “Exorcist” movie. Clara was born in South Africa 1890, and we don't know much about her life before she reached the age of 16. What is tragic, and puzzling, was what happened on her 16th birthday. She confessed to Father Erasmus, she told him she had made a pact with Satan!

Lisa is solo and is joined by Derecka Purnell. Derecka received her JD from Harvard Law School and works to end police and prison violence by providing legal assistance, research, and training to community-based organizations through an abolitionist framework. Her work and writing has been featured in the New York Times, NPR, The Atlantic, the Boston Globe, Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, The Appeal, Truthout, Slate, and many other publications. Book description:For more than a century, activists in the United States have tried to reform the police. From community policing initiatives to increasing diversity, none of it has stopped the police from killing about three people a day. Millions of people continue to protest police violence because these "solutions" do not match the problem: the police cannot be reformed. In Becoming Abolitionists, Purnell draws from her experiences as a lawyer, writer, and organizer initially skeptical about police abolition. She saw too much sexual violence and buried too many friends to consider getting rid of police in her hometown of St. Louis, let alone the nation. But the police were a placebo. Calling them felt like something, and something feels like everything when the other option seems like nothing.Purnell details how multi-racial social movements rooted in rebellion, risk-taking, and revolutionary love pushed her and a generation of activists toward abolition. The book travels across geography and time, and offers lessons that activists have learned from Ferguson to South Africa, from Reconstruction to contemporary protests against police shootings. Here, Purnell argues that police can not be reformed and invites readers to envision new systems that work to address the root causes of violence. Becoming Abolitionists shows that abolition is not solely about getting rid of police, but a commitment to create and support different answers to the problem of harm in society, and, most excitingly, an opportunity to reduce and eliminate harm in the first place.

This week's guest is native New Yorker Abby Lehman, a natural storyteller, connector, and social entrepreneur working at the intersection of community, government, and business. As a fourth-generation New Yorker, from a family of East European migrants, Abby is living evidence of the value and impact of immigration on a city and nation's success. Abby explains how her social impact NGO, Photo Start, uses photography as a gateway for under-privileged youth in Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and the United States, to open up educational, vocational, or professional pathways so as to equip them with problem-solving, entrepreneurial, and financial skills necessary to create transformative economic opportunities for them as individuals, for their families and their communities. We discuss the transformative impact of her new rural and urban regeneration innovation program, Syzygy Cities, which aligns community needs with Government initiatives and business interests to stimulate economic and social development. Abby breaks down her current live initiative, Invest Southwest, working with the city of Chicago, national and local commercial partners, and local NGOs to provide the infrastructure, services, and solutions to create more economically and socially resilient communities. Abby is an inspirational female leader, a driving force for positive socio-economic change, forged through her clarity of strategic thought, collaborative spirit, and forceful and eloquent voice.

When the socialist leader of Mozambique and some of his senior advisers were killed in a plane crash on the border with South Africa, many were suspicious. It was October 19th 1986 and the two countries were divided over Apartheid. The plane made a sudden direct turn straight into a range of mountains, and one of the air crash investigators at the scene, Dr Alan Diehl, told Rebecca Kesby there are reasons to suspect the plane was deliberately diverted off course.

This episode of Then & Now features a conversation with Frank B. Wilderson III, Chancellor's Professor of African American Studies at UC Irvine and author of the book Afropessimism. The conversation tracks his extraordinary life journey from youthful radical activism in Minnesota to a career as a stockbroker to participation in subversive activity for the African National Congress in South Africa. It also focuses on Wilderson's stark and unsparing philosophical stance of Afropessimism, which rests on the belief in a racism so deep that it divides the world between Humans and Blacks.
Peter Hansen died on September 9th in Cape Town, South Africa. He was 87. For thirty-five years from the dawn of modern air cargo, Peter was most important, and amongst his peers a very respected, down on the ground innovative air cargo builder of the last century. You may not know him. We realize that time marching on can be ferocious and people can get lost in the shuffle. But not this time. For air cargo, Peter Hansen simply was the whole package back at the beginning when creativity was the order of the day. Without precedent to fall back upon, Peter was the one with the knowhow to be a driving force for remarkable operations that were created between airline, forwarder and shipper. It was what Henry James described as “grasping imagination” that created airborne traffic where none had existed before. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/geoffrey-arend/support
