IN THIS EPISODE OF PRACTICALLY CONSCIOUS,
I TALK WITH ERIC PICARD,
About his adventures on merchant ships from South America, to Europe, the Middle East, and around the world, to his climbing the ranks to become a Captain of ocean going vessels. Eric’s career then shifted to diplomacy and international relations through USAID. He has been in most of the world’s dangerous places, places where many of us don’t get a chance to go, such as North Korea, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Kosovo, and Iraq.
The last several years, Eric has focused on civil and political rights in the developing world. We discuss the toll this type of work, helping populations on a large scale, can have on people, and some of the tools that are used to keep people healthy and fulfilled.
He is currently exploring a career shift to become a writer.
One of the books Eric recommends in the show is Dan Buettner’s, The Blue Zones.
Enjoy the show!
