    #34 Stephen Hicks | Understanding Friedrich Nietzsche's Life & Philosophy (Part 1)

    #34 Stephen Hicks | Understanding Friedrich Nietzsche's Life & Philosophy (Part 1)

    Listen To This As A Podcast Instead🎙️: https://atlasgeographica.com/stephen-hicks-nietzsche-part-one/

    Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the greatest and sharpest philosophers of all time. Nietzsche's ideas, Nietzsche's quotes and Nietzsche's philosophy has proven to be truly Lindy as it is permeated again and again through the culture. In this podcast, I trace the timeline of Nietzsche's life while Stephen Hicks provides all the context and explanation of Nietzsche's philosophy as it develops throughout his life.

    Together, we traced Nietzsche's timeline up until the big inflection point, just as Nietzsche has published Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

    #33 Mike Salbro 'Big Mike' | Growing Up Aboriginal In Sweden From The Stolen Generation

    #33 Mike Salbro 'Big Mike' | Growing Up Aboriginal In Sweden From The Stolen Generation

    Visit The Website Where This Is Published🎙️: https://atlasgeographica.com/mike-salbro-aboriginal-in-sweden/

    Big Mike Salbro is one of the last people forcibly taken from their mother’s arms as a member of the stolen generation.
    Mike’s story is full of twists, turns, tragedies and inspiration. He was adopted at just a few months old from a lovely Swedish woman and shortly after moved to Stockholm. Mike, alongside his brother (also Aboriginal and adopted in Brisbane) then grew up in Sweden coming through Swedish schools and the entire Swedish system.
    Mike has now returned to Australia. Brisbane specifically and now works as a social worker after going through his journey in the social system supporting young indigenous people of Australia.
    This chat meant a lot to me. Big Mike is a legend. I hope you enjoy it the same. Spread it far and wide and leave positive reviews.

    #32 Preston Martin & Aleksa Burmazovic | The Incredible World Of Special Economic Zones

    #32 Preston Martin & Aleksa Burmazovic | The Incredible World Of Special Economic Zones

    Listen To This Interview As A Podcast Instead🎙️: https://atlasgeographica.com/interview-special-economic-zones/
    Both Preston & Aleksa work for the Special Economic Zone consultancy firm, The Adrianople Group, of which Preston is a co-founder. We covered so much in this chat – most notably, what are special economic zones? I wrote an article explaining, in brief, an introduction to these phenomena of globalisation and multinational trade, but it is in this conversation I had with Preston & Aleksa that the true depth of Special Economic Zones starts to be realised.
    Over 60% of the world's trade runs through a Special Economic Zone and these are spaces whose regulations fall outside of the state's regulations within the country they are housed. So you can immediately see a story of tax evasion and exploitation. But this is to quick and un-nuanced a look at things, it turns out Special Economic Zones (like many things) are subject to both the good and the bad, and things of such complexity are worth thinking about.
    My favourite part of the chart was all of it! But that doesn’t help you point out highlights. So in short I would say the following three subjects make up the best parts of the conversation.
