Digital Trekker Interview + Podcast

woke up this morning and craved a juiced vegetable drink. Yes, I wanted 16 ounces of juiced broccoli, spinach, beets, carrots, kale, and an apple for good measure. After two full days of conference food (i.e. pizza, tacos, and a midday milkshake), my heart stopped beating amidst the hidden MSG. Oh, what was that? Too much information about my eating habits? You should be thankful I didn't bring up the brown sugar I snuck on my morning oatmeal. For shame!

To save you all from the glories of detox living (but, really, juiced garlic is way hot), I thought I'd share a recent interview I was stoked to do with Matt Brandon of The Digital Trekker. He interviews photographers from around the world and shares his kind insight with many people, so I was honored to spend an hour chatting with him. If you'd like to listen to the interview, you're more than welcome to do so here.

Happy Wednesday!

Ariane Hunter - I listened to this podcast as I sat at my desk at my day job. Jasmine you were so inspiring to say the least! At the very end you said something that hit home, "life is too short to have a job, you have to have a passion". I couldn't agree more. Everyday I try to muster up the strength to quit my job and pursue what I love. One day...Thanks again for that extra inspiring nudge.   05.21.10 - 12:04pm

Rory Mole - Hi Jasmine, Just a quick suggestion... try some Xylitol on your oats. Here in Cape Town, you can buy it in small sachets which can be kept in your hand bag when eating at a hotel for breakfast. I'm sure you can buy them the same waw in the US. Not sure if you've heard of Xylitol. Fantastic sugar alternative, but not like any other artificial sweetner. It is natural and good for you......  05.19.10 - 10:47pm
Erika - Jasmine you seriously made me cry so hard when you were talking about your mom and her battle with brain cancer and how even though it was a hard time for you, it was also an inspirational time. I am an Oncology Nurse and I see my patients and their families experience their ups and downs. It is just as hard for us as it is for them. I think I became so emotional during your interview also because I am at the fork in the road where in the back of my mind I contemplate changing my career path. Just like you said, "I don't want a job, I want a passion." Even though I am passionate and enjoy what I do, I have never been able to say I love my job. You are such an inspiration to me and I want to say Thank You :0)  05.19.10 - 9:04pm
