A Podcast Recording and Beyond

A Podcast Recording and Beyond

Earlier today I was the guest of the GROEN podcast by Femke Cornelissen and Maarten Goet. The recording was fun and solid, I really enjoyed every moment of it.

Sunflowers and hot showers

About a month ago I was in Manila for work, and also had a weekend for sightseeing there. While it was a great, shocking, and eye-opening experience, in some ways it also reminded me of my own childhood. Our situation back then was not as bad as some places I saw in Manila, but still……
