#34 How to build a house in the clouds that is grounded enough to make you feel home – with artist and film maker Veronica Riedel

At my favorite hour, the blue hour, I met with German-Guatemalan artist and filmmaker Veronica Riedel in her penthouse. During tea and cake, I asked if she would spontaneously like to be interviewed as part of my podcast. To my great delight, she agreed. Again, it was a special honor to be able to exchange ideas with such a creative, smooth, intelligent and empathetic person. Thank you so much, dear Veronica!  During the hour of our conversation, our thoughts circled around the topic of "home" in particular. But not only that, we also talked about the following topics: - Stories...

#33 Opera & spirituality: Connecting to the animal within us – live at a river bank with professional Opera singer Anthony Pinkerton

It happened early one evening, just before sunset. Down at the riverbank adjacent to the tropical Jungle, I spotted a bearded gentleman doing situps with a heavy log on his shoulders. A picture for G ods. We got into a conversation that interweaves the topics of opera, sexuality, and spirituality. Anthony Pinkerton born 1999 in Orlando, Florida (USA), has been spending four years studying voice performance at a world class conservatory of music, Westminster Choir College. During his time in conservatory, his voice teacher was also a yoga teacher, encouraging him to bridge the gap between singing and spirituality. Since...

#32 Talking about humanity, power and politics – with Guatemalan politician and business man Diego Arzu Garcia-Granados

Without a doubt one of the most exciting interviewees I could ever imagine: Diego Arzu Garcia-Granados. Mentally flexible, intelligent and intellectual, charming and open.

He was raised in a family where political talk was and continues to be the order of the day. Diego knows the international arena of politics and economic interdependence as well as few. The common exchange led us from the historical heritage of...

#31 Sex before marriage: Talking privately from (a Muslim) woman to (a non-Muslim) woman perspective – live from a market in Lombok, Indonesia 

It was on a hot afternoon when I made a stop with my scooter in a small town in the north of Lombok. The ride was exhausting and I was tired. Since I was traveling alone, I decided to stroll through the local market in hopes of grabbing a chilled coconut. As I did so, I noticed a woman not taking her eyes off me, even following me slightly. I walked up to her and a conversation ensued. Today I found it again in my archives and would like to share it with you. Why? Because it shows me how...

#28: Special Libanon – Late night talk with internationally acclaimed photographer and business man Roger Moukarzel

“Because I was born into a family of journalists, I used to hang out with journalists at the newspaper office. When the war erupted in Lebanon, I used to take my brother’s camera – at a very early stage – and shoot some black and white images in the village.” „I was aware that what we used to do as war photographers was not translated accurately. A big part of the news was fake news because, at some level, they would translate whatever photos I had taken in a different way. I was putting my life in danger to show...

"Art is not only a means of pleasure, but also expression and establishment of freedom, the relation of the internal world to the surrounding environment (…), the conflict of idealism and realism, the relation between the existence and non-existence. The mentality of the artist is always related to the events around him, because these events create the art." (Maka Batiashvili) Maka Batiashvili lives and works in Tbilisi, Georgia, where she was born in 1975. After her studies of monumental painting she devoted herself to smaller formats and video works that were shown in diverse exhibitions in Georgia. Her works are...
