*** Don't forget to subscribe! ***   To view the full episode, click here:  https://youtu.be/d8ZWJs7soIE   * EPISODE LINKS IN DESCRIPTION – BELOW *   As a conservationist, I have long appreciated how much ecology is a critical tool for understanding how we fit in the world and our impact. Wanting to build the choir of voices on the podcast that address conservation, climate change, and what science tells us, I stumbled upon Thor Hanson. Was it a TED talk? A Wired clip? An article in some magazine or other? I don't remember. But I reached out and he generously agreed to meet. Fantastic!   Thor is a Switzer Environmental Fellow and an award-winning author and biologist. His books include "The Impenetrable Forest and Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle," which won the John Burroughs Medal. He lives the Northwest corner of the USA.   Thor is just awesome, so here's another plug for his book,   Hurricane Lizards and Plastic Squid: The Fraught and Fascinating Biology of Climate Change    ****   Find out more and reach out to Thor here:  - https://thorhanson.net/   ****   More from Shooting it RAW:   * Website:  https://www.shooting-it-raw.com/   - Amazon Music:  https://music.amazon.ca/podcasts/a92caaa1-6f09-473f-bd00-9f2e9000b3fa/SHOOTING-IT-RAW-WITH-RAN-ELFASSY   - Apple Podcasts:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/shooting-it-raw/id1495187250?ign-mpt=uo%3D4   - Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/shootingitraw/   - Spotify:  https://open.spotify.com/show/6p3NoR69bLG4lZ52FKE2dR   - Stitcher:   https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/shooting-it-raw-with-ran-elfassy   - YouTube Channel:   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sqti7YyKrSNUdgw3ONSFg/videos

088 – Nooshin Mobasseri on Being a Persian Artist and What it is to Make Art in Our Wide World
*** Don't forget to subscribe! ***     To view the full episode, click here:  https://youtu.be/K1mEMsrV78c   * EPISODE LINKS IN DESCRIPTION – BELOW * Thanks again to Rachel Smith from Senseless Art Studio and other events, I met with Nooshin on her houseboat in Aberdeen, on Hong Kong island. While her home pitched, yawed, and swayed, she unpacked a joyous tale of what it was like to become an artist in Tehran.      For those beyond Iran's opaque borders, we can only wonder what it was like to grow up in such a place. With the means to leave her homeland, Nooshin eventually landed in Hong Kong. That road was not an easy one.      She offered some strong coffee. We talked. She explained her art and influences. Even how she's been establishing a footprint for her art through cryptocurrency-backed NFTs. The images she's featuring on the podcast are from her Animal Farm series.      Beautiful. Powerful. Serious. Playful. Irreverent. Confrontational. Feminist. Traditional. Progressive... So many impressions and connections to her work.    Join us. Learn, laugh and be moved.    Merci. **** To find out more about and reach out to Nooshin, visit: - https://www.maryammobasseri.com - https://twitter.com/WithoutNoosh - https://www.instagram.com/thenooshart/ **** More from Shooting it RAW: * Website:  https://www.shooting-it-raw.com/ - Amazon Music:  https://music.amazon.ca/podcasts/a92caaa1-6f09-473f-bd00-9f2e9000b3fa/SHOOTING-IT-RAW-WITH-RAN-ELFASSY - Apple Podcasts:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/shooting-it-raw/id1495187250?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 - Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/shootingitraw/ - Spotify:  https://open.spotify.com/show/6p3NoR69bLG4lZ52FKE2dR - Stitcher:   https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/shooting-it-raw-with-ran-elfassy - YouTube Channel:   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sqti7YyKrSNUdgw3ONSFg/videos

085 – David St Maur Sheil Shares His Passion for Connecting Art with Making Veritable Land Scapes
Riding out to Lam Tsuen Valley, I enjoyed the view of the distant Tai Mo Shan peak, the banana trees and large trees that look like eucalyptus but I couldn't name off-hand. I arrive at our meeting spot and David greets me with his warm smile. We walk up to his house, lost in a small village and what immediately hits me is the space he has and the earthiness of his environment. We sit in a shed, converted into a painting studio, filled with brushes, canvasses, various tools, but also jars and tokens collected from the environment. The scent of a fire hangs around us – some neighbour is probably burning leaf litter – and we sit for a chat. Artists generally need to figure out for themselves how to collect their tools and media of expression. For some, it's acrylic paints. For some, it's wood, resin, fiberglass, balloons, food, bodily matter, stone, or anything else that connects deeply with the person. In David, what emerged was the drive to make art of his landscape with the actual material around him.   Join us. Sit in as we talk about making art, being connected to our environment – to be closely connected to the very soil and dirt that goes unseen beneath our feet. ****     To find out more about and reach out to David, visit:   https://m.facebook.com/david.stmaursheil https://www.instagram.com/david_sheil_studio/ ****   To view the full episode, click here:   https://youtu.be/k8hGf09uZsQ  More from Shooting it RAW:     * Website:  https://www.shooting-it-raw.com/ - Amazon Music:  https://music.amazon.ca/podcasts/a92caaa1-6f09-473f-bd00-9f2e9000b3fa/SHOOTING-IT-RAW-WITH-RAN-ELFASSY - Apple Podcasts:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/shooting-it-raw/id1495187250?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 - Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/shootingitraw/ - Spotify:  https://open.spotify.com/show/6p3NoR69bLG4lZ52FKE2dR - Stitcher:   https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/shooting-it-raw-with-ran-elfassy - YouTube Channel:   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sqti7YyKrSNUdgw3ONSFg/videos

084 - Monica Borschel Shares How to Cope with Trauma through Psychological Resilience – Because We Matter
I love each episode in this podcast, but some episodes transcend what I bring as an interviewer and what the guest brings from their life. In this case,  my exchange with Monica was magical.    Grounding ourselves in the outdoors and what being in our bodies can do for our mental state, Monica began by sharing how she connects to hills and trails. We soon dove into her experience of the 2008-2009 financial crisis, what it was like to be under threat of going hungry and how to survive in New York City, and then to land in Hong Kong.    We then dove into her work as a psychologist, how people can deal with trauma and grieving, and how to cope when things fall apart. And boxing... We also talked shop about her competitive boxing and how life has evolved to land her back in the USA, still serving clients and supporting people as we all go through one of the most difficult challenges in our communities with the pandemic.     The stars aligned. Monica was there.

I always knew it would be outside my comfort zone, but being a beginner at this kind of practice is exactly what I was looking for. When I found out someone was offering BJJ courses right here at the Hive in Sai Kung, I thought how perfect! As soon as I met Jonathan, I could hear right away the warmth and slow pace of the South – my guess of somewhere in Georgia hit the spot. A few times a week, I began training with the few guys here doing what is the key to the BJJ experience. A whole, total, complete workout, where you spend your time learning the techniques and complexities of this insane martial art. "Hey dude," I said, because at this place and time at least, it's a dude's arena, "you know what I would just love? To get someone who does BJJ onto my podcast." Jonathan gave me his easy smile, shrugged his shoulders, and said, "sure thing man. I'll record with you." And here it is. Actually, if you pay attention and enter his world, you're going to be moved.  And if you're like me, inspired and then some.  **** Learn more about Jonathan here: - https://youtube.com/c/THEHumanExperience  - https://youtube.com/c/TheWallStreetKid **** More from Shooting it RAW: Website: https://www.shooting-it-raw.com/ YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sqti7YyKrSNUdgw3ONSFg/videos Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/shootingitraw/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/6p3NoR69bLG4lZ52FKE2dR Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/shooting-it-raw/id1495187250?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Stitcher:  https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/shooting-it-raw-with-ran-elfassy

He agreed and we lined up a call. Turns out that sure enough, Boxabl is doing something perfectly incredible.  The short of it is that they're putting houses into industrial manufacturing, letting people benefit from having costs of production dropped waaaaaay down, quality go waaaaay up, and that houses can now be mass-manufactured, shipped, and installed in about an hour. Just amazing.   Huge thanks to Galiano for his time and incredible work.    *See disclaimer below Boxable links. **** Learn more about Boxabl, visit: 1. https://www.boxabl.com 2. https://www.instagram.com/_boxabl/ 3. https://www.tiktok.com/@boxabl 4. https://www.linkedin.com/company/boxabl/ 5. https://twitter.com/_boxabl 6. https://www.facebook.com/boxabl/ 7. https://www.youtube.com/boxabl BOXABL IS CONSIDERING UNDERTAKING AN OFFERING OF SECURITIES UNDER TIER 2 OF REGULATION A.
