I happened to link up with an award winning StartUp that developed GEM, which is a mobile rewards platform for volunteers in South Africa.

The first session was with David Shields who is a co-founder of GEM and the second session was with Danielle Jarvis who is a Project Coordinator.

Besides GEM, Danielle is a Couchsurfer, Managing Director of SailPro, High Performance Sailing Coach and Psychology post-graduate so I had alot to learn from her in those areas. We talked about Couchsurfing, travel experiences, sailing and opinions on education since she’s a teacher.

      Hi Shahab. Thanks for giving me a shout.

      What device are you using to download? Assuming its smartphone(Iphone), Apple doesn’t allow users to directly download music and videos directly without using iTunes. So you can try one of the solutions below:
      1- Download using the podcast app
      2- Download using soundcloud. You just need to sign up.
      3- Subscribe to the podcast on itunes and it will automatically download.
      4- Download from using laptop/desktop
      5- There is an app called Infuse 3 that allows you to download music and videos to your device.

      Let me know how it goes and happy listening:)
