Episode 55 (Pt.2) Mark Spickett - Under African Skies
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This is Part 2. of my fascinating conversation with Mark Spickett and takes us from the 90’s through to the present day. 

Mark entitled the 90’s “The Roller Coaster Years” and that should tell you that his life continued to be exciting, challenging,  full of change and filled with fantastic stories. 

Mark also makes a great set of musical choices a three of which were new to me. His choices are : 

90’s       Massive Attack                                            Blue Lines 

00’s       Federico Aubele                                          Maria Jose (Toy Hernandez Remix) 

10’s       Michael Kiwanuka                                      One More Night 

20’s       Moby                                                                  Extreme Ways – Reprise Version 

Bonus   Cesaria Evoria, Ismael Lo                       Africa Nossa 

In amongst the stories and music Mark talks very movingly about discovering the concept of “Third Culture Kids”. These are people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or the culture of their country of nationality and who live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years. This is exactly the experience Mark had and I for one learnt a lot here. I hope you find the same.
