Based off the BBC4 “Desert Island Discs” podcast, college student Omar Abdelaal sits down and asks Leadership Consultant Mr. Mirza Yawar Baig to select 8 music titles most connected to his life experiences. Interviewing in the outdoors, a natural habitat for the interviewee, childhood memories and stories are shared with us through laughs and tears. A podcast special you could say features all, (some wind disturbances and Mr. Baig’s music selection). We ask you to live the environment Mr. Yawar Baig loves so much by going on a brisk morning walk and enjoy!

Moving forward, please let us know what you think, ask any questions, and if you would like to see more of podcasts like these. Thank you and be well!
