    In this episode of the Quicksilver Generation Podcast, I interview entrepreneur Jane Iyer. Jane is the founder of Jane’s Singapore Tours, a company that offers guided tours of Singapore with a focus on the island’s heritage and history. But what does a republic that’s barely 54 years old really have to offer by way of history? The answer may surprise you. 

    Jane also tells me about how she turned away from a successful corporate career in Human Resource Management and decided to embrace her love of history and Asian culture by starting her own company at the age of 60.

    Episode 3: PN Balji, Singapore's "Reluctant Editor"

    In this episode, we interview Singaporean path-breaking veteran journalist, media consultant and author PN Balji. At 70, Balji recently published a book ("Reluctant Editor," Marshall Cavendish International, 2019) on his memoirs as a journalist during the regime of Lee Kuan Yew, founding father of modern Singapore and the island republic's first Prime Minister. In this discussion we discuss Balji's "love-hate" relationship with LKY, press freedom and the state of journalism today. We also talk about how Balji "retired" from working as a full time journalist at the age of 53 and how building a personal brand prepared him for his post-journalism career.
