Episode Five: Omikemi
Keywords:water, armour, hustle, care, transformation, trust, kinship, image
In this final episode of the podcast, released under the full moon in Scorpio, Rajni Shah and Omikemi engage in a long, slow, deep conversation, in which they reflect on the entanglements between the felt world of lived experiences and the systems within which we live our lives.
Infused by the sounds and shapes of the ocean, this episode feels intimate and visceral – and perhaps more than any of the others, like an invitation to eavesdrop on a conversation between friends.
In the accompanying offering, Omikemi invites listeners to spend time with a question that was present for them at the time of recording.
