Welcome to the world of voice! While writing is an excellent skill to build story structure, speaking is way faster, direct, and on the spot. In retrospect, I think that I developed speaking skills much earlier than writing and realized how powerful speech can be. My podcast is a way to capture the fleeting nature of spoken words and distribute them with the powers of the Internets!

List of all Nerd on Tour Podcast episodes
- Elaine & Kevin – mindful hosts of The Hatchery Place coliving in Kuala LumpurFor the first time, I have two guests at once – Elaine Wong and Kevin Yeoh. They are the most generous hosts of The Hatchery Place. It’s a very cozy coliving space, where I lived between October 2019 and September 2020. They transitioned from corporate careers to the world of arts and crafts, where Hatchery is a central place of their varied activities. Together we talk about long-term traveling, authentic connections, and building a healthy coliving community. Learn more in this uplifting episode of the Nerd on Tour Podcast.

What is a podcast?
Remember the iPod? No worries, you don’t have to. At the time it was the most trendy thing in the USA. Back then I have been living in Poland – one of these regions that were dominated by (illegal) MP3 files and very few people was interested in listening to anything else than music.
A podcast is a term we use to describe any audio recordings, much like on a radio station but distributed over the Internet. The technology and the name itself were created between 2000 and 2004, but Apple’s portable music player iPod made podcasting mainstream in English-speaking countries.
After about two decades podcasts are becoming a global phenomenon. It’s never been easier to record, publish and listen to podcasts in a variety of languages and topics. Almost any device allows now to browse, download or stream an increasing catalog of audio recordings.
