Adam is an emerging podcaster and writer. He is a social worker by trade and currently works in delivering training and capacity building programs around the world. He co-directs a theatre production company that showcases local artists in Brisbane.
Adam talks to self-described accidental activist Tenzin Choegyal in episode 4. Accidental activist is an incredibly humble description for a man who has done so much in his life to give voice to the story of Tibetans in exile.  Tenzin was born in Tibet, but only lived there for the first few years of his life. His journey has taken him to Nepal, India, Australia, and all over the world. Tenzin is a passionate musician who has created his own style of music, which has led him to play some of world’s biggest stages and to collaborate with other artists at the top of his field. And it is through his music that he advocates for his people.  . . .   Sound is mixed by David Gaylard.   All music is from the Free Music Archive. Full song details on are on Tenzin's page on our website at inmycountrypodcast.com/2020/08/06/tenzin/   Our logo and graphic design is by Mo Zaidan https://www.behance.net/moezaidan   We have also been helped and supported by a generous and talented community of people.  For a full list of credits visit inmycountrypodcast.com/credits/   You can learn more about Tenzin's life and music at his website http://www.tenzinchoegyal.com/ and on his episode page on our website.   Join the conversation:  Facebook.com/InMyCountryPodcast  Instagram: @inmycountrypodcast  Subscribe to our mailing list at http://eepurl.com/g6-YTz 
Adam chats with Iago in our third episode.  Please note, Iago's episode has been divided into two parts. This is part two. Please make sure to listen to part one first to hear his full story.   Iago was born in Iraq and spent his adolescent years in Saudi Arabia. Despite intense pressure to conform, Iago has strived to express himself, his true self, his whole life. He has faced obstacles that would have pushed others over the edge. Instead, he has turned to the arts, and his extraordinary resourcefulness, to create a different life.  Note that Iago's story deals with some heavy topics and contains course language.

Join Pia's conversation with Faisa Adan in our second episode.   Faisa is a person who wears many hats: community worker, entrepreneur, muslim, and woman of big ideas. The first half of Faisa’s childhood was lived out to the backdrop of the Somali Civil War. The second half was spent in Kakuma, one of the world’s largest refugee camps.   Pia talks with Faisa about some of the experiences of family life in these settings; childhood stories that feel distant, but also strangely familiar. And about how she's been able to bring pieces of her past into her future in Australia.   . . .   Sound is mixed by David Gaylard.   All music is from the Free Music Archive.
