Season 4 Episode 13 – Marijke Smit, Senior Counsellor at the Mission of Israel to the WTO.
For episode 50, I wanted to do something a little different, and I cannot think of a better guest to track how ten films have influenced the personal and professional life of someone than my friend and colleague, Marijke Smit.
We have been colleagues for over six years, and we usually talk about International Trade but also about films, music, and popular culture. Hence, let us bring a bit of that conversation to a special podcast episode.
We talked about how she became a lawyer, got into International Trade, and made her way to Geneva. I had asked her to make a list of 10 influential films, and in our conversation, we discussed all of them and how they influenced her. We try to avoid spoilers, but in some instances, we do go into specific plot details. I did not know her list beforehand, and I was surprised about some of her picks.
It was a fun conversation, and I enjoyed getting to know Marijke through her film choices.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
