Yeah we can do that in a lot of people are already doing it. The dating at bumble says it seen a huge increase in their video call feature among users especially in big cities with mandates to stay home like New York City San Francisco and Seattle but with anything that has to do with the Internet.

Press pause before we go. We wanted to tell you about something we heard on our other. Podcast skimmed from the couch this week. Bestselling author and activist Glenn. Doyle joins us to talk about her. New Memoir contained in that she describes what happened when she stopped in hearing to other people's expectations of her and started listen to herself. She also told us what living untamed at work can do to change culture everywhere. I think what we have to do. Incorporations in churches and institutions in political groups is create room where people who have differing ideas. Different voices. Different experiences can bring the full selves to the table and know that they will be both held by the group and free to bring a different self to the table so there is no more important place for people to begin to start using their voices than incorporations.
