Episode #23: Every Expedition Needs an Artist

We talk with Dr. Sarah Jane Pell, an Australian artist, researcher, occupational diver, and lover of space who is currently training to be an “artist-astronaut” and will soon be bringing art to a suborbital space mission. We discuss how SJ’s art is connected from sea to summit to space, why we need to keep asking good questions, why it’s always a good idea to discover, discover, and discover some more, and why every expedition needs an artist.

Episode #19: Follow the Women

We talk with Camille Seaman, an award-winning photographer, documentary filmmaker, Stanford Knight Fellow, and a TED Senior Fellow, who strongly believes in capturing photographs which articulate that humans are not separate from nature. Camille has photographed glaciers, chased storms, and most recently spent over 30 days at Standing Rock. We discuss Camille’s time at Sacred Stone Camp, how understanding interconnectivity and heritage is a strong antidote to fear, and what happens at the intersection of observation and passion.
