242: Strangers Abroad with Adrien Behn  

Today's podcast is with Adrien Behn. Adrien is the host of the Strangers Abroad podcast. Strangers Abroad is a series of conversations Adrien had with the wonderful and weird people she met during her journey to Latin America in 2015: a 5-month, 5,000 kilometer adventure spanning 10 countries, hundreds of people, and countless stories. If you want to hear a first hand tale of booking a one way ticket and winging it then this is the podcast for you. It’s an honest example of long term backpacking: the successes and struggles, the screw ups and spontaneous adventures, and all the mundane moments in between. This podcast aims to illuminate how when you travel it becomes so clear how interconnected we are. Those you expose yourself to become part of you and vis versa from the taxi drivers, helpful locals, fellow volunteers, or the people you sit next to on a bus. Although I may have known these people for a few minutes, hours, or fortunate enough to spend months with them, we are now part of a larger story. Travel isn’t always glamorous but is immensely rewarding.

watershed  

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for March 23, 2017 is:

watershed • \WAW-ter-shed\  • noun

1 a : a dividing ridge between drainage areas

b : a region or area bounded peripherally by a divide and draining ultimately to a particular watercourse or body of water

2 : a crucial dividing point, line, or factor : turning point

Examples:

"This year marked a watershed for contemporary classical music in the city. No greater proof was the Ear Taxi Festival, a Chicago-centric marathon of new music performance that, for six heady days in October, brought together some 500 local musicians to present roughly 100 recent classical works...." — John von Rhein, The Chicago Tribune, 22 Dec. 2016

"The Cienega Creek watershed contains some of the highest-quality riparian woodland, riverine and cienega wetland habitats in Arizona." — Jennifer McIntosh, The Arizona Daily Star, 29 Jan. 2017

Did you know?

Opinion on the literal geographic meaning of watershed is divided. On one side of the debate are those who think the word can only refer to a ridge of land separating rivers and streams flowing in one direction from those flowing in the opposite direction. That's the term's original meaning, one probably borrowed in the translation of the German Wasserscheide. On the other side of the argument are those who think watershed can also apply to the area through which such divided water flows. The latter sense is now far more common in America, but most Americans have apparently decided to leave the quarrel to geologists and geographers while they use the term in its figurative sense, "turning point."

Métiers au bord de la crise de nerfs  

Magistrats, policiers : ces deux corps de métiers ont vécu sous le feu des critiques ces dernières semaines. Pourquoi certaines professions sont-elles si stigmatisées dans les affaires politico-sociales ?     Avec : - Marc La Mola, auteure de "Police : grandeur et décadence", aux éditions Michalon. Il a exercé pendant plus de 25 ans au sein de la BAC de Marseille - Dominique Verdeeilhan, journaliste à France 2 et auteur de "Les magistrats sur le divan", aux éditions du Rocher Et le reportage d'Alice Milot. Rickshaw, tuk-tuk, moto-taxi d'Ouagadougou, taxis jaune et noir de Dakar... les taxis présents partout dans le monde, sont une véritable institution. Mais depuis plus d'un an le développement des applications de VTC, les voitures de tourisme avec chauffeurs, a provoqué une crise de la profession dans certaines capitales, notamment à Paris. Alice Milot est montée dans le véhicule de René Pierre Jean, chauffeur de taxi depuis près de 20 ans.

China's Leaders Expected To Limit Debt  

China's top political body has opened its annual meeting in Beijing, two days before the start of the National People's Congress. The gathering of the country's top law making body gives the Chinese Communist Party an opportunity to agree the way forward on economic strategy. However new reforms are unlikely amid expectations of Chinese leaders reinforcing the need to stop surging debt and limit financial risks to keep growth steady. Andrew Peaple of the Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, gives us his predictions for the decisions to be announced at the NPC this weekend. The US car giant General Motors is closing in on a deal to sell its loss-making European arm, Opel,and its British brand Vauxhall, to PSA in France. PSA, which makes Peugoet and Citroen cars, has declined to give long term commitments to protect jobs, However automotive experts believe it will have to cut the workforce at factories across Europe to revive Opel, which has made politicians and trade unions in France, Germany and the UK anxious to protect workers from the axe. The BBC's Russell Padmore reports on Opel's future under French ownership. It has been another busy week for the BBC's Business News Team following developments like President Donald Trump's first address to the US Congress, the latest in the French presidential race, an argument between the boss of Uber and a taxi driver over prices and a winning stockmarket debut for the company that owns Snapchat. We reflect on the week's events in the business world with Soumeya Keynes of The Economist and Jason Abbruzzese, from Mashable in New York. Nintendo's new Switch games console is now on sale, which saw excited customers form lines to buy the device in Tokyo, London and New York. Nintendo has a lot riding on the portable device, which can also be used as a home console. After the failure of the Wii U some experts claim this could be a make or break launch for Nintendo. BBC reporter Will Bain gets the opinions of consumers in London and we ask Charlotte Palfrey from Ovum, what will constitute success for Nintendo?

Ep. 008 - Silicon Valley Disrupters with Brad Stone  

I’m going to assume that a good portion of you subscribed to the Better Off podcast have used either Uber or Airbnb. I use Uber all the time and it seems like everyone I know has used Airbnb. My producer Mark just used Airbnb for a week in Tokyo and loved it. James Altucher, our guest from the second episode, basically lives full-time in various Airbnb locations. It’s no exaggeration to say that these companies have almost single-handedly disrupted stodgy industries (taxi/limousine and hotel), become stars of the Silicon Valley venture capital world and made their impact felt across the globe. That’s why we were delighted to have a great conversation with Brad Stone, Bloomberg journalist and author of “The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley are Changing the World.” Brad defines an upstart as either “a newly successful person” or “someone who does not show proper respect to the established way of doing things” -- you’ll need to decide whether or not Travis Kalanick of Uber and Brian Chesky fall into one or both of those categories. They certainly were brash survivors who didn’t create the ideas that made each company successful, but somehow they were able to execute better (more ruthlessly?) than their competitors. Unlike in his previous book about Amazon, “The Everything Store”, where CEO Jeff Bezos would not talk to him, this time Brad had access to all the key players and he writes a compelling page-turner. He opens the story with the 2008 Obama Inauguration, which founders of both companies were attending. What lessons have these wildly successful upstarts learned over the past nine years? How have they matured and become better leaders? After reading this book, you’ll have a whole new perspective the next time you ride in an Uber or make an Airbnb reservation. “Better Off” is sponsored by Betterment.

Pod One - Time to scrap the House of Lords! 21st February  

Freeloading peers are claiming up to £300 in expenses just for turning up to work! In a new BBC documentary, Baroness D'Souza claims one peer even kept a taxi running outside while he signed on to collect his allowance. How is this still happening? I spoke to politics lecturer at the University of Glasgow, Dr Thomas Lundberg. I say time we drained our own swamp and booted out these unelected freeloaders and scrapped the House of Lords! With all the corruption and greed going on in the world of football, are we really worried about a fat goalie eating a pie? Sutton United's reserve keeper Wayne Shaw, knows as the "Roly Poly Goalie" because of his 15-stone frame, was caught eating a pie towards the end of his side's brave defeat at home to Arsenal in the 5th round of the FA Cup. He's since stood down. Why? Because Sun Bets, who sponsored Sutton for the game, reportedly offered odds of 8-1 on any Sutton player eating a pie live on air. I spoke to top betting expert from x22bet.co.uk Carl Harris, who said that since no one's suggesting Shaw took any money personally from this, we shouldn't care!
