Beyond the Raging Sea: State of Mind

29 subscribers

In 2016, Omar Samra called Omar Nour with a life-changing idea: “How about we row across the Atlantic Ocean?” Within a matter of hours, the two were registered to compete in the world’s toughest race: a 3,000-mile unsupported row across the mighty Atlantic Ocean, in a seven-meter rowing boat. However, nine days into their journey, when their boat capsized in a severe storm and the life raft didn't open, they came face-to-face with death. Inspired by the documentary, Beyond the Raging Sea, this podcast unravels new layers of humans’ state of mind against adversity. State of Mind is produced by Kerning Cultures Network. State of Mind is hosted by Lobna Monieb. It’s also produced by Lobna, alongside Ahmed Ashour and Ban Barkawi. The show is edited by Heba El-Sherif and Deena Sabry.

Daring Together


-Look, I-m suffering. I can-t talk right now.-
Up until Omar Samra and Omar Nour decided to row across the Atlantic Ocean, they were acquaintances. But after nearly dying together in the middle of the ocean, their relationship took a quick turn. How does the relationship between two people evolve when they have to depend on each other for survival?

Quick Nap in a Wet Sock


“The only time that’s enjoyable is when you’re unconscious.”
 
The only break Omar Samra and Omar Nour get after their two-hour rowing shifts is a 40-minute nap in a two-meter wide cabin, using a wet sheet and a crumpled wet t-shirt for a pillow. When your only break from intense physical stress and mental anxiety is a few hours of intermittent sleep per day, how does this drastic pattern change affect your brain, and what dark places does your mind wander to?

12-Hour Rowing Shifts


"If I don't close my eyes for literally two, three, five minutes, I'm done for.”
 
Omar Samra had to cope with an extreme bout of sea sickness. Omar Nour had to pick up extra shifts. On top of all that, a huge wave turns their boat upside down and puts them at the brink of death. How do you activate your calm response when your body is aching? And does going through stressful experiences shield us from similar ones in the future?
