Let’s Go Kickass Today with Seljan Nasibli, Faraz Shibli and Yolanda Copes-Stepney

A monthly podcast talking to inspirational people from the fields of Music, Adventure and Culture. This month, is the penultimate episode of series 2 and what an episode! I interview opera singer Seljan Nasibli, she educates me on all things opera and she tells me about her album, “Femme Fatales: Soprano Heroines from the Orient“, and how it was inspired by the Me Too movement in Hollywood, and how she overcame her Dad’s wishes for her to pursue a different career. I also interview adventurer, travel writer, and barrister Faraz Shibli about crossing the Gobi desert by foot at the age of 25, and being the first Briton to do so, and the physical and mental exhaustion that came with that, as well as his human rights work and how that correlates with his passion for travel. Finally, I speak to founder of the Speak & Do marketing agency, activist and podcaster Yolanda Copes-Stepney, about running her own marketing business, racism in the industry, overcoming grief, practical tips to run a business and the importance of boundaries.

I chat to Seljan at 1 min 40, Faraz at 21 minutes in and Yolanda at 42 minutes in.
