Let’s talk about what is possible.
Let’s talk about the stories that inspire us, the people who give us hope, the challenges and hardships that can be overcome. And let’s talk about these things from an understanding that we can change, that anything is possible, and we sometimes just need to understand how.
We sometimes just need to hear someone else’s story for it to unlock in us the inspiring qualities that we see in them. For it to open a new way of looking at things, a way that gives us the energy and inspiration to go back into our own lives and try something different, and enjoy the new results.
Join our host Telana Simpson as she unpacks the mindsets of individuals who are doing extra-ordinary things. As she finds experts to share their knowledge, and dares them to keep it practical and relevant to today’s challenges. And as she and her guests endeavour to teach, share, laugh, learn, all to inspire you.

Growing healthy and "ugly" food, with Jacques and Promise
Have you spent much time thinking about the food you eat? About where it is produced, why it looks like it does, and how old and nutrient rich the food actually is?
This podcast explores a positive approach to eating local trusted food.
Telana swapped her scooter and borrowed an old car nicknamed the Chariot, to drive the 14km’s from home to a farm in Kyalami, Johannesburg. She went to visit farmers’ Jacques and Promise, to collect her veggies that she ordered online the day before, in an attempt to be a more conscious consumer. They talk about:
* Ecohydrology and Biodynamic farming
* Ugly food - our perception of what food should look like
* Conscious food consumption and what we need to be thinking and asking about
* GMO’s and pesticides and alternate options
* Reasons to buy local
* How to deal with food waste in an ecological and environmentally friendly way

Adventure in Africa in a Hillman Imp, with Terence Tracey
Terence Tracey and Geoff Biermann enjoy their cars.
They specifically have quite a sweet spot in their hearts for the Hillman Imp, also known as the poor man’s porsche.
They decided to drive one from Johannesburg, South Africa, the way through Africa and Europe to London.
And they gave themselves a crazy deadline- travelling the 14000 km’s in less than 40 days!
And what an adventurous story it is!
I had a delightful morning with Terence, sitting in one of his imps from his collection, mesmerised by his adventure.
If you’ve ever been curious about travelling in Africa and enjoy a good story and adventure, you’re going to enjoy meeting Terence as much as I have- there’s lots of pearls of wisdom that Terence shares along his story, so it’s well worth a listen!
