    EP 26: Zouk - Story-driven music, "You're not trying to book the room You're trying to book the show", Check in with Yourself, ft Abraham Amkpa

    Abraham kicks off the 26th episode taking us from Niamey Niger to Zaria Nigeria, Bristol United Kingdom, and back to Niamey before arriving in New York. Being born in an area that's popular for nomadic tribes may have been the beginning of the shaping of his identity: large fishes, zouk music, culture shocks, getting into acting, and so much more. Abraham also brings us into his motivation for performing, creating stories, and inspirations. Abraham has worked on TV and movie projects, and his journey is just getting started. Abraham is based in LA. Be sure to catch Abraham on BET's Boomerang Mid-April. Abraham also offers coaching services to actors and can be reached at  https://www.thescriptcoach.net/ PS: I'm still working on improving the remote interviews, so bear with me for the sound quality issues.

    EP 24: Mexican Last Names, Conflict between Commitment vs Passion, Spiritual Guide, Something From Abroad ft Lorena Ramos

    EP 24: Mexican Last Names, Conflict between Commitment vs Passion, Spiritual Guide, Something From Abroad ft Lorena Ramos

    Episode 24 was my last recording at the Brooklyn Podcasting Studio as the studio had to shut down as a precaution over the Covid-19 pandemic that we are all facing (this was before NY state issued the statewide lockdown). I'll be putting out episodes, don't worry friends. Please be safe and avoid any careless behavior in these trying times.Special thanks to Lorena Ramos. The wonderful actress who blessed us with her presence and experience in the studio. It's not been a comfortable journey despite starting in what's considered a privileged background. Lorena would, at one stage, have to choose between pursuing her career and service to her God. We shall see the importance of having the right spiritual guide, frustrations with the entertainment industry, and how double standards cut across sectors. Luckily, Lorena hooks us up with excellent spots for food in both New York and Mexico City, along with other great experiences in her life. Lorena is also part of Something From Abroad. A production house put together by immigrant women. I'll be checking out a play or two of theirs in the futurehttps://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Something-from-Abroad-Productions-Presents-ABROAD--A-Night-of-Short-Plays-20180814

    EP 23: Cradle of Cosmonauts, Diversity in Russia, Azerbaijani Hospitality, Tupac Shakur, ft Namik Geydarov

    EP 23: Cradle of Cosmonauts, Diversity in Russia, Azerbaijani Hospitality, Tupac Shakur, ft Namik Geydarov

    We visit the former Soviet Union for today's episode. Our guest Namik takes us to Kaluga, a city that has been around for about 600 years and has played a significant role in the history and study of cosmology and space travel. Namik introduces us to hospitality in Azerbaijan, which triggers a forgotten memory in me, a reminder of similar generosity existing around the world.Namik also touches on food, his love for Tupac Shakur (his wife loves Tupac just the same way too), his culture shocks, along with advice for writers and how he has trolled me once or twice. We didn't touch much on football because it was on the eve of El Classico that we recorded. I like to think that he did not want the smoke, Hahaha.

    EP 22: Between Two Worlds, Differences in Portuguese, Heart is Always Angolan, Give Room to Challenge Your Belief, ft Dr. Connie DePinho

    We have our International Women's Day episode. Meet Dr. Connie DePinho, who has a unique story spanning three countries and continents.Listening to Connie tell her story about her journey was one of those occasions where I wanted to take a seat and be the audience and just listen. It was an honor to have Connie in the studio sharing how she and her family navigated pre-colonial Angola to the end of fascist Portugal before arriving in the United States. I am grateful that Connie chose to share profound moments, such as discovering her father's legacy is still alive in Angola on this podcast. Never underestimate how far the seeds you plant can grow. Please check out and support African Women's Education Fund AWEF.org

    EP 21: Working for Yourself, Romanticizing Entrepreneurship, American Dating Culture vs. Congolese Dating Culture ft Linda Adria Sebasiho

    EP 21: Working for Yourself, Romanticizing Entrepreneurship, American Dating Culture vs. Congolese Dating Culture ft Linda Adria Sebasiho

    It's always fantastic to have Linda Adria Sebasiho join us in the studio. For this episode, we dived into the world of entrepreneurship and dating based on Linda's experience. From influences on Linda to the contradictory nature of how African women are expected to perform according to a "cultural standard" when it comes to business, raising a family, and more (set by who?) In discussing both dating and entrepreneurship, there are lots of crossovers where both topics are intertwined. It's not just limited to Congo, Nigeria or Africa, as you would see, multiple issues apply to people all over the world (be it correctly or incorrectly) when it comes to both topics.Linda appeared on the NY Times recentlyhttps://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/28/dining/pop-up-dinners.htmlYou can reach out to Linda via Instagram @lindaacooks and on her websitehttps://lindaacooks.com/home
