Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you lived on a boat? What about if you spent your life working toward the idealistic goal of world peace? In this episode, we bring you Caspar's conversation with activist-interpreter Daniel Read. Dan lives in Japan, but travels the world working as an interpreter for a non-governmental organisation called Peace Boat - a cruise ship that blends education, tourism and activism together as a vehicle for change. Dan and Caspar discuss his work as an interpreter in international dialogue and his passion for educating people about differences in the world. Dan also shares his struggle with NGO work and the challenge in affecting real change on complex issues. Produced and edited by Nina Roxburgh and featuring music by Big Gigantic.
Join Caspar as he binge thinks the complex nature of wars, conflict and peace building with 32 year old senior lecturer Jasmine Westendorf. Jasmine is an expert in the field of international relations, specialised in conflict resolution. Jasmine shares her journey from waitressing to running an entire degree program in one of Melbourne's “most radical” universities. She also binges on juggling the demands of academia, how her research has developed, and speaking with UN ambassadors. If this wasn’t enough, in her spare time she is also running Melbourne Free University to provide the community with equal access to education and knowledge.
