Ferdinand Garcia is a financial advisor from San Francisco. To this day, he has lived with HIV for 14yrs. He loves traveling and work on the road. While out there seeing what the world has to offer, he raise awareness for HIV by taking photos with “I AM HIV” written on a board.
One of the main things I learned from this is to be brave and not let the world define who you are because of what they expect you to be.
Topic we covered:
-Living with HIV

My guest in this episode is Brent Botha, a sports scientist. He also work for Air, Water & Earth (AWE), A Biotech startup working on reversing air pollution. Brent has also been a professional cyclist for the last couple of years.
We started off with catching up since we worked together at some odd job 2 years ago. We mostly talked about clean air in which he gives a lot of insights. He then talks about how the technology AWE developed will help to solve the air pollution problem to some level.
Dr.Jonathan David Farley received his D.Phil. in mathematics from the University of Oxford in 1995, after winning Oxford’s highest mathematics awards, the Senior Mathematical Prize and Johnson University Prize, in 1994. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1991, with an A.B. in mathematics. He had the second-highest grade-point-average in his graduating class. He has also had visiting appointments at the California Institute of Technology, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University, and he has been a Science Fellow at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. Dr. Farley is one of only four Americans to win a 2001-2002 Fulbright Distinguished Scholar Award to the United Kingdom. He is the 2004 recipient of the Harvard Foundation’s Distinguished Scientist Award, given on behalf of the president of Harvard University for “outstanding achievements and contributions in the field of mathematics.” Seed Magazine named him one of “15 people who have shaped the global conversation about science in 2005.”
Professor J. Farley also co-founded Hollywood Math and Science Film Consulting where they’ve worked on several tv shows including Elementary, Numbers and Flatland(consulted for a film with Kristen Bell and Martin Sheen).
Jonathan thinks very differently, in fact his thoughts are usually unconventional. My impression was to talk about math as you might’ve thought but we talked about life. Specifically about politics, dating, places among other things.
Below are few points I picked up from Jon which stood out for me in our conversation:
-Obama is a war criminal. He should be charged for murder.
-Marriage isn’t worth it for men, it’s actually a mistake.
-Alimony should be eliminated.
-Feminism is harming women.
-The skills required to be a successful politician are not the same skills that are required to run a state successfully, that’s the problem.
We also did a part 2 where we talked about other subjects we didn’t cover on this one like his mathematical formula to eliminate ISIS/terror, his childhood, academia and more. All you need is to subscribe to stay updated with new podcasts.

“If you’re a man and super organised, you are a such a good worker. If you’re a woman and organised, they say you’re “bitch”-Annika Friesen, my favorite take away from this Podcast.
Annika Friesen is a business person, blogger, traveler, accountant and consultant. She is the creator of Fernwehsociety.com, a blog about lifestyle, travel, and entrepreneurship.
She was bitten by the travel bug while she was only 10 months old and she never look back. She has traveled alot and lived many places while doing all sorts of odd jobs just to stay on the road. That just reminds me of how travel or new places forces you to go out of your comfort zone and try new things that you wouldn’t do in your home town.
In this podcast, we covered:
-Her transition from 9-5 to doing what she love.
-How living in a foreign country affects your life
-How she balance her job and blog
–Women in business
-Her favorite blogs and podcasts
The blogs she mentioned:
