I’m here to talk trash. Over the past year, as you probably know, I have been endlessly lobbying for the right solution to the waste catastrophe to be implemented in Lebanon in my capacity as “national expert on waste-to-energy”, as one of the ministers once called me on TV.
Anyone else competing for that title will be challenged to a duel on top of a mountain of trash. Come forward now, or forever hold your peace (and your nose since, you know, the smell and stuff…).
Famed author, physician, and documentary filmmaker, Dr. Pedram Shojai, known as the Urban Monk, (check out his book) all the way in California heard of all these efforts, and hosted me on his podcast to discuss my work and the Lebanese waste crisis. This happened in Los Angeles, CA. 12,000 km away from Beirut. This media personality in LA was more interested in this clean work in Lebanon than most of the news outlets here in Beirut. It is an honor.
You may either read the transcript of my interview, and/or you can watch the interview to see how I speak with my hands.
