Apa sih yang buat pembicaraan tentang sex itu selalu bikin risih dan jadi dihindari? Garis besarnya di Indonesia diskusi dalam bentuk apa pun seputar seks itu tabu dari sudut pandang budaya berbaur unsur agama yang sangat ketat. Alvin Theodorus dari Tabu.ID adalah generasi muda yang ingin mendobrak belenggu budaya untuk menabukan pembicaraan tentang seks terutama dari unsur reproductive health. Di episode ini juga dibahas bahwa kecanggungan dan tabu untuk diskusikan tentang seks dan relationships kadang memojokkan anak-anak muda untuk menikah dini untuk menghindari seks di luar nikah tanpa kesiapan dan pengetahuan yang jelas apa ekspektasi yang ada dari pernikahan itu sendiri. Pendidikan Seks yang terarah adalah objektif yang dikehendaki dari generasi muda dan seterusnya dengan mengikis tabu yang ada selamanya. Follow IG @JandaBecanda
Welcome to episode 17 where today I present to you a dear friend of mine whose accolades include Editor of an international woman’s magazine Nourrir, which she runs as a passion project while maintaining her corporate career with Oracle.
She experienced an incredible life transformation during her divorce process with the help of her yoga practice, Crossfit, poetry writing as well as personal development coaching. She now someone who successfully juggles being a single mom while always making time for herself. The same woman a decade ago was unable to be herself within her marriage. What changed?
I hope my podcast can not only spotlight the success stories of strong women, but also show us how they did it. One of the most important things she learned in her transformation journey was an effective mindset shift that helped her express herself, particularly when she felt vulnerable in her marriage and still effective today with her son.
Here today to share that ever critical life skill is my dear friend, Freya Innana.

You hear stories of people who had life changing moments that inspired their lives to take a different path altogether. A virtual reality trip was that fork on the road for Ashima Thomas. A former BBC journalist turned short documentary filmmaker who turned to Virtual- and Augmented-reality for her new medium of story telling.
Her conviction of the future of VR for the masses rose higher than her fears of sticking to the work she was doing. Her vision as CEO of her Singapore-based firm Warrior 9VR is to show you the compelling stories that require your input to the point where you would take action. Her latest mission is to get people beyond awareness of the world’s plastic problem through an under water ocean experience using VR made available through your smartphones and get you to help combat the problem.
To learn more about Ashima and her work you can check out her Instagram and Facebook page.
A daring everyday heroine Marta Smith shows us what courage looks like to take a leap of faith on leaving a high ranked 13-year tenure with a global retail company to starting up a new business venture with her husband.
Together they created the fitness based app WannaTrain from scratch and rode the highs and lows of managing and growing a new business. After many blows to earlier versions of the app, they’ve finally struck the momentum for their business to take off and go global.
This is our second to last show this season and we will take a break and pick up again in February 2020!
I am so excited for today’s guests because we welcome my 12-year-old daughter Paloma and 11-year-old niece Shakira who are aspiring Youtubers on their journey of growing their followers.
I wanted to put a finger on the pulse of what motivates them to dedicate their time on developing a social media presence. Apart from plain fun, they see the skills involved in growing a fan base as a necessity for their generation. Full of irreverent wit they mistakenly label anyone old as “Boomers,” and sheds an interesting viewpoint that to the young, old is just old.*
Life is a blank slate for them and they are already making headway on developing their creativity, technological skills as well as plenty of self reflection on what truly makes them happy.
Without further ado I bring you Paloma and Shakira or as you will soon know them as Sushi Nooshie.
*NB: In case you’re wondering, I’m no Boomer but definitively a minted Gen Xer, 🙂
On Janda Becanda today are two senior Indonesian reporters with combined experiences of working for international news agencies and primary Indonesian publications.
The episode looks at the importance of role models and mentors particularly in the early stages of one’s career. Our first guest is the esteemed former editor of the Jakarta Globe and news anchor for the Globe’s televised Perspective TV show. He was my mentor at the international news agency I worked for and someone whom I owe a great deal for my on the field reporting skills. And not to mention this guest is the first man on Janda Becanda.
Also joining us is a former news reporter for the BBC world service. She now works for the Global Fishing Watch leveraging her journalism background to advocate environmentally friendly causes, a subject that is near and dear to her heart.
You will hear us reminisce about our reporting days in the late 90s along with the observation and criticism of how journalism has changed in the last two decades.
INTERNAL REPUTATION – Often for many of us Jandas the hardest pill to swallow is to accept the current reputation we have among our family, friends and random people we barely know. I say this with a great deal of humility to acknowledge that often rebuilding from the inside out takes a long hard look…
