    20: The Rationalist

    20: The Rationalist

    Critical Thinker | Serial Entrepreneur | Creative 
    Andy learnt the joy of being a creator when he applied a lot of what he had learnt theoretically when he started his first start-up, a micro-brewery. 
    He got into journaling when a teacher in college taught Julia Cameron’s The Artists Way and Morning Pages - Frame of Consciousness (Value of writing, reflecting, thinking) for 3 months as part of a class.
    Here are some excerpts from the conversation -
    “Pay attention to what you are afraid of.”
    “Come up with your own system of values - Make decisions for yourself”
    What do does Andy value?
    - Humor; 
    - Risk - Rich parts of life unless you take risk. 
    How to reflect on good and bad things? Reflect on bad things by thinking of why something happened, not by pinning the blame on somebody but to get the root cause of why something bad happened and what could be done to avoid that in the future. 
    Reflect on good things by writing down in as much detail as possible how something feels like. Chase that feeling.
    Write down why decisions were made the way there were and reflect back on it from time to time. 
    How can one be more gentle with oneself?
    Wait. But Why? - Tim Urban - https://waitbutwhy.com 
    Write down how that feels at that moment. If something feels bad or ugly, it mostly is a misalignment between something doing and the belief. 
    Ben Franklin Effect - The Ben Franklin effect is a proposed psychological phenomenon: a person who has already performed a favour for another is more likely to do another favor for the other than if they had received a favour from that person - How to ask for help? People want to add meaning to their life and to the lives of others. So when asking for help, provide context and tell them that you were in a similar spot as they are or were and would want to talk about it. 
    Kurt Vonneget - We are asking our spouse to be too many people?
    Conference – A good way to think about networking in a conference is to answer the question of - Can you be friends with this person for 10 years? 
    If the answer is yes, a simple way to add depth to your conversation is to simple ask – “I am really enjoying this conversation, do you want to grab a coffee or go for a walk?”

    19: The Radiocaster

    19: The Radiocaster

    Journalist | Radio Producer | Podcaster
    Stumbling on a career path in radio. 
    Breakfast Radio - Talk back radio - Talk back, call in segments, 
    Catch Up Podcasting for a commercial radio station where the radio station airs the show for people who may have missed the original segment. What is interesting is the fact that the ads were cut out from the podcasts. 
    Discovered podcasting during the archival process of burning radio shows on CDs. Binged on all episodes of this american life. 
    Realized that radio could be an outlet for writing. A way of story telling. 
    Listen to this podcast to understand the relationship between writing, podcasting, radio and content creation/production. Podcasts as a way of creative expression. 
    Heard Jay Rosan talk about Giant Pool of Money - This American Life (Link required) during the Melborne Writer's Festival to realize the there can be audio journalism. With Journalism that does not need to be immediate. 
    World of audio documentaries. 
    Also, one of Jess' favorite episodes. If you are a journalism student, then you need to be learning about -  - Audio Production - Learn Interviewing - Narrative - Story - How to tell good stories in different ways / perspectives.
    Sometimes if a story does not go as per plan, then maybe one can end up with a better story. What is important is that the listener/reader has a proper sense of what happened in the start, the beginning and the ending.

    The Super Randonneur - 2 of 2

    The Super Randonneur - 2 of 2

    Mechanical Engineer | Cyclist | Sports Scientist | Author
     
    In this 2 part special episode with Raman, we discussed the impact of Hyderabad Bicycling Club on Raman’s cycling, Sports as a career, getting bored easily and what to do about it, the importance of complexity in a passion or pursuit, why cyclists shave their legs and so much more! Tune in to find out more. 
    In part 1 of this episode we spoke about Raman's upbringing in Hyderabad, the winding career path he took, why he's reading Range from David Epstein, his favorite podcasts and the reason he stopped playing football.
     
    Raman Garimella is an engineer, cyclist, and a sports scientist, in that order. He started endurance cycling at the age of 22. In 2010, Raman joined a local cycling club in Hyderabad with whom he did countless weekend miles. Soon after, he left his job to give full time professional cycling a shot. His mainstay initially was ultra endurance riding, regularly cranking out 100-600k rides. At the time, he was the second youngest Super Randonneur. After the brevets chapter, he moved on to road racing. Raman regularly finished on the podium in races in (Telangana +) Andhra Pradesh. His best result at the Road Cycling National Championship was 12th. The year after, while his racing career came to a close, he moved to Germany to study sports science. It was perhaps the first time he enjoyed going to class. Raman currently works in Belgium as a PhD researcher in sports science - specifically cycling aerodynamics.

    The Blue Sky Thinker - 2 of 2

    The Blue Sky Thinker - 2 of 2

    Journalist | Advertising Copy Writer | Comic Book Writer | Podcaster | Youtuber 
    We continue our conversation with Vijayendra Mohanty aka Vimoh who runs the acclaimed Mythofiction podcast currently! Chose English lit and did not end up there because of rejection from Economics.
    "My mentor had a profound impact on me. He was that someone who told me that I was on a path that had merit."
    "You're an arts student, what are you going to do in your life?"
    Half life of technology implementation with every new technology taking lesser time than the previous one. Similar to the hierarchy of subjects at school, Vimoh found himself opting for the least preferred journalism option - New Media, which was the bottom of the pyramid.
    He wants to work for 6-7 months every year and spend the rest of the year working on private projects, so idealistic!
    "Nagaraj and super commander Dhruv saved my life. Without them and the entire group from Raj Comics who were pioneers in Indian Comic Books, I would not be here writing something like Raavanayan."
     Vijayendra Mohanty is an Indian comic book writer. He has authored a ten-issue comic series called Ravanayan and is presently writing several new Indian superhero titles to be published soon.
     
     He has also been the co-creator of the YouTube channel Epified which was dedicated to Indian mythology and history. These days, he is hard at work producing the Mythofiction podcast - an audio drama show with serial stories inspired by Indian mythology and folklore. The first season is called Yugantar and it features a dark lord, a prophecy, and a curious twist on an old trope.
