A conversation which got me super fascinated about city recycling systems —

Brilliant Minds of Trash and Sewage – I found this podcast episode is very interesting. In this episode, Pam Elardo (Deputy Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection) and Ron Gonen (New York City’s first “Recycling Czar”) talk about how waste and Recycling systems in New York City.

New York City generates 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater every day. 16 million pounds of trash. Eight million pounds of recyclables. Think of the awesome engineering and effort behind making all of that “go away” without our thinking about it.

This conversation was fascinating and gives so many ideas which many cities should implement.


A song which has me hypnotised –

Goodbye – This song is the theme song of a Netflix series – Dark. I’m looking forward to watching the series. But when I saw the trailer of this series this song came up.

It’s from a German musician named Apparat and from Album – The Devil’s Walk

Now that I’ve listened to it, there is no going back, this song got stuck in my head and it feels hypnotic

Just mind-bending.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

Instead of wondering when your next vacation is,
maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.

Until Next Saturday!
