Would You Ever Join OnlyFans?
"Wet is only fans. It is not a site that only sells electrical fans although you may find some pages that contain fans on them weird. Yeah because it was your first thought when you think of onlyfans a website that only fans if you literal now i understand what you're saying you like that but that's what. It is actually a nice summary. From men's health magazine explains that only fans which launched in two thousand sixteen allows users to post original content and sell to people who want to see it. There are chefs who share cooking. Videos and fitness instructors lead workout classes but the site has primarily become for the porn stars who have amassed a giant following. Most of those reforms charged upwards of five dollars for a month subscription. The maximum creator can charge fifty dollars a month plus extra for personalized photos and videos and tips are encouraged interesting. Okay that makes sense influence. A marketing hub. Kind of really breaks it down. Even further to your point they definitely say it's a monetize -able platforms that allows content creators to create these subscriptions with their their fans where they pay like you said x. Amount per month anywhere between five dollars to fifty dollars a month only fans retains a twenty percent fee so there is a fee per this type of service in argue sign up and they can also content. Creators also can have free pages where they can charge fans to access content via pay per view. So that's interesting to know and content. Creators have both the free page and a subscription page tha diversify and optimize their earnings. So for instance actor. Bela torn join only onlyfans and racked up millions of dollars in just a few days only plans implemented transaction limits which capped the ppv pricing at fifty dollars posts and tips from new fans at one hundred dollars per tip and they also change the payout frequency in some countries from weekly paths to pay outs. Every twenty one days so very very interesting also to know they just so you guys now on influence or marketing hub. They say that this site was founded in twenty sixteen by british tech entrepreneur investor timothy stokely and now has more than thirty million registered users and more than four hundred fifty thousand content creators. And that's pretty. Pretty darn nifty. Now to your point. I did also see a lot of content around the idea that this is a platform where you don't have to be showing sexually explicit type of content but for people who seem to be more popular and or iraq and more money seemed to be showing that type of content where com creators are posting uncensored x rated pictures videos as well as hosting live strange were their followers can engage with the creators real time interesting and also they have messaging features that allow creators to market to their viewers. Similar email marketing letting them know about new or exclusive content polls and more and their live performances go along way toward increasing audience. Engagement brand affinity optimizing viewership. Very very interesting
Ibram X. Kendi And Keisha N. Blain On The 400-year story Of Black people In America
"Professor planes. You've got the top box. I'm going to start with you. This is a different kind of history book right. It's a history book where some of the ninety writers aren't even historians collectively who are the writers. And why are their voices so important so we asked an array of writers to contribute to the volume. And as you point out so many of them are not professional Journalists to contribute we asked philosophers to contribute We asked creative writers to contribute as well as poets end. What we wanted to do was really grapple with four hundred years of history. And not you know. We really didn't want it to feel like a typical a history book. I and of course asking ninety historians Would have i think a taken away from the the sort of you know tone that we were trying to set which was bringing together a diverse community which met people coming to the history writing about the history from their own experiences but also from their unique trainings whether in the field of journalism are in the field of law and so it was important for us to create something new something special something original and that meant bringing in writers from a wide array of backgrounds. Professor professor blaine just talked about the fact that you have poets in the book and you write quote sometimes. History is best captured by poets out. Some more there's anything. I've learned in my time writing history. That is that it's deeply complex. Variegated story that in many ways. We have to imagine things that we don't have a speculate on on on decisions that we don't have a specific for that we have to stretch archive especially when writing on on people's particularly working class. Americans certainly working cost black folks who haven't left an archive who haven't left on speeches and and necessarily written records and so you know. Poets have the capacity to really show the depth and complexity and the imagination and creativity of humanity. And and so when we when that comes to bear on history. And i think they were really able at the end of each section to really flush out and contextualized. You know forty years. When i was in school. Professor blaine We're going way back like the nineteen seventies nineteen eighties black history The way we're talking about today just wasn't taught. Slavery was a chapter and not exactly told honestly the accomplishments of black americans were diminished if they were even acknowledged so has anything changed since the seventies in the eighty s. What needs to change. So i think some things have changed You know when you look at how history textbooks written. We're certainly at a place where the textbooks that are produced today or even in the last ten years i think are better than the ones that were a public. Maybe twenty years ago does not mean that we still don't have work to do. In fact we have a lot of work to do. Especially i think in the last two or three years. We've been talking about textbooks in places states like texas for example where they're still a debate about how you talk about the civil war and how you talk about slavery and like you. I certainly encounter textbooks. That didn't really flesh out are the nuances. You know an even the trauma of of the the experience of slavery in often times a glossed over eight or or perhaps had a little box to focus on martin luther king junior but other than that not really center a historical figures i and so a lot has changed in part of that. Change is directly tied. I think to the work of a professional historians. We've been working very hard odd to excavate the history in in in order to help people better write about the history. I in a way that reflects the richness than the complexity and diversity of the black experience but particularly in a way that centers black agency which is key that black voices appear. That black ideas appear in. These textbooks are still some work to do. But i think we're making progress. I think four hundred souls is certainly the kind of texts that would help us move forward in that direction.
Keeping Up The Fight For Women's Health Care
"Walker matt brown girls to never episode of the brown roles to politics and today we are joined by dr mirage shaw with plan. Parenthood and we are going to talk about women's health. Care something that is important to all of us and something that's going to be even more important. Under the biden harris administration. We're going to dive into some of the things that we can expect over the first one hundred days so let's get started. Dr shaw thank you so much for joining us. Yeah thank you so much for having me excited to be here so i just want to know a little bit more about you. You're a fancy. Dr which is wonderful. What made you wanna go into this field. So i am a family medicine physician so i am trained to care for the basic needs. The healthcare needs of all people so women men trans nonbinary community so all people. I really narrowed my focus in to sexual and reproductive healthcare as well as gender affirming care for the trans. The nonbinary community. I'm currently the chief medical officer of planned parenthood economic where oversee ten of the health centers. That are just right outside of new york city Also on the board of women's health alliance from which is an independent abortion clinic where they have health centers in indiana in virginia. Men the few other places that are that are under served when it comes to abortion care though a lot of hats. Play a lot of roles But that is actually where i am. Most and most happy is providing direct patient. Care as well as on lending my voice in a broader in the broader narrative. Around these issues. Thank you so much for everything that you do. We know it so important in. Was there anything in particular that really drew you to want to work for planned parenthood I mean it is an organization that i have always looked up to. It's actually where. I trained in abortion care when i was a resident and i was always so drawn to the idea. This organization not only provide care. Without apology i really just love. The this organization provides not only abortion care but prenatal care and full spectrum sexual reproductive healthcare contraception sti screening for hiv prevention the full spectrum end because the work that the planned. Parenthood does is unfortunately so politicized Planned parenthood has a large part of the organization is to do advocacy to fight for access and support around this work. Which which i you know. I just love in so like i said earlier. Not only do. I provide healthcare services. I also advocate as much as i can i love that advocacy piece. Because i feel it's so important when you're doing this work and is just already comes through from talking to you in the first few minutes just how dedicated you are to the work into the patients and been so politicized and we are entering the biden harris administration. And there's a lot of good food. That i personally feel that can be done for women's health care in on his first day. We saw a stack of executive orders on an president. Biden's desk just absolutely loves saying that and for me it was just a reminder about how so many people can change our lives with a swipe of a pen and how it does matter who we have in office by the people like you who we have you know behind the scenes who are making sure that the knowledge is out there that they're advocating properly. So what are some of the things that with them ministration. Would you like to see especially just coming off of the past. Four years where we're seeing that women are the hardest hit by the economy the pandemic there's just so much at stake for women right now yes women and you know other people with the uterus are definitely the ones who feel the most oppression when it comes to their their basic needs whether it be childcare whether it be accessing contraception rather be building are planning their families and we saw this firsthand in the last four years so i agree i mean i think that a lot of people have a lot of hope for what's to come with this new administration and feeling like you know we can finally take a deep breath the end just signed relief. I will say we have a lot of work to do.
If You Don't Denounce, You Approve
"You don't denounce must mean you improve when there isn't something being said anytime anyone any place after something that spat going on and you have the opportunity to denouncing head on be able to condemn it and then when you choose not to do so you only get help but wonder what are the true motives of a already. I'm gonna happen saying continuously when talking about the gop in what's going on their side and something that is if i always say this is not something of me being a democrat attacking republicans. Don't associate myself or identify myself will be in either but the fact of the matter did you have to call out. What is the truth. You have to call out what it is that you've seen and i've always said the democratic party may not be a perfect party by no means at the same time at least there a party that doesn't show the type of acceptance of hate speech and and and races in wide supremacy and white nationalist. At least you see that not happening on one side of the aisle but you see it happening another where you have to really question. The motives of what their party really is about to their core. Because it's been amazing to me too. Still after weeks two or three weeks on how long congress has been in session we have well the republicans have a certain congressman by the name of marci taylor grain cheese congresswoman out of georgia and someone who's accused non conspiracy theories somebody who has literally attacked in agitated or Mocked survivors of mass school shootings. Two young man died in lakeland who survived the shooting and she basically If you saw the video is a couple of years ago he was going into capital hail when she basically just completely for berated him and basically excused came up during a false flag operation basically meaning that he was faking this this whole entire shooting. The whole time lakeland shooting was a fake was a fraud. It was just something to try to go against gun. Rights pass lost to children. People died mass shooting. She has a nervous as a false flag operation
Essential Practices of Successful Couples with Certified Marriage Experts Howard and Danielle Taylor
"We got off the line. Everybody howard and daniel taylor. They are certified marriage experts and during covid nineteen. I'm gonna tell you personally. Y'all i feel more in love with my wife being in saying i really right. I really appreciate it. You know what. I'm saying. Like we know like i really like you i can. I can agree with you more. I think we always say that cova magnified more which were so. There was some healthy couples. who are who got a chance to connect even more right. And then there was couples who had resentment and it strikes dormant that magnified even more right. and so. that's that's a great testimony to where relationship already. What so what do y'all think about people breaking of okay. I'm driving around the city. And i'm seeing all these signs on light post ninety nine dollar divorces so people will try to get rid of each other and is is there a way to turn this tide around you find out. I've been stuck in the house with you. But i really don't like you. I'll do all. I even risk catching covid. Nineteen just to get out of the house. Because i don't say people are really desperate. Now people i'd ever anneli desperate to to get out. I think it's important to really take the time to realize what you have in your house to really take the second step back to appreciate what they bring to the to the table to look at things from a bigger linda. This is a temporary season. And even though there may be things being uncovered that we may not like about. It doesn't mean time to like run for the door right now. It's time to kind of buckle down and work out okay. what is it that i need from you. What do you need from me. And how can we make that happen peacefully so that it doesn't have to evolve into a divorce. How do you bring people's minds back together. That first time that i saw you fell in love with you been now you know things are just different man. I love it. You know back to the fundamentals we authored a book called the fundamentals of marriage it and sometimes people get so fancy with their skill set or the desire to hope or need that they they put aside the things that originally brought them together that originally allowed them to fall in love. The fundamentals are not any any entity strong. and we we believe that there's five Things that couples could do to reconnected in the new year. Right that you have to do and take attention to reconnect and we would love to share those. Okay well please go ready in the first practical one has the house has become a monotonous place. Because we're there all the time right you know we're we're we. It's an elementary school. If your parents it's office it's it's it's everything and and so on. I've been attention all of our redefining. Our home space. One of the things that we say i. If you should do is plant after our spa offs on nights right after the kids. This lee go online. You don't have to have any money to take to to figure out how to give a great massage to figure out how to do a fantastic bubble bath to amazon with the little bit of money orders to massage oil in there. If you're saved we maybe use olive oil. If you of the plan your so after our spun nights beat a in do it. In a specific place consistently to be able to redefine a spades or room in your house so that the house itself isn't so monotonous it allows you and your husband or wife reconnect in a way that maybe you weren't doing prior to Cove in nineteen okay. Another idea is to take an online class of mutual injuries. So you mentioned earlier and howard as well about now. During the pandemic people losing their jobs and not necessarily having the finances you could pull up youtube right from your computer possibly cast into your tv and learn something new together whether it's the second language or cooking or a dance class when howard and i got married we took the damn class like a professional dance studios. We can get right. You know i i. Yeah but pulling that back out because we actually did this. We pulled it back out. The the cha-cha together and it was so much fun. Just being silly you know dancing together just reminded us when we first got together the excitement and the fun and so. That's something that people can do that fun to learn something new at the same time and cost effective right so cooking cooking as well. You know you can get into kitchen. Recreate your your favorite dish right. That's the third one you're right. You're right in there in many counties in many states you can't you no longer keep dying in. You have to take their food back home day on. I thought it would be a great connection. Experience to recreate our favorite meals from our favorite restaurant right and and and we make again. This is about connecting reservations for two. So if you have children or extended family that live in a house. This is not a male for them If they smell with the cook and tell them that they're going to be a bad by the time. This resume and recreate favors meal and bring it into your also this this. This brings the restaurant experience again. Back to your home. He create a really fun rejuvenated.
"But do you ever want more cuss myla. My love is deeper tighter. Sweeter higher flyer did engine know this. What did engine no to my love. Jill scott yes indeed do you. Jill scott. not particularly. Didn't think someone told me your facial expressions. I mean. I know who she is. And i know that but i'm not like you know i don't reach reach for her. I know who she is not seen so to speak. You know. I have a lot of respect for her and i know that she is a gift in a. You know an absolute treasure in wealth of our culture in our time. But i can really say that. I've never really jess got in the car or came home. And said i wanna listen to them. Jill stat. I feel something some key. Either really jill scott's or she doesn't really jill scott it all something must be just. It's one hard yes or no. I'm dying to say. And i i know who she that's how i feel. I have a lot of respect for her as a person as a black woman i think. She's extremely talented. But i just you know with the shit's will praise the lord dishes with all due respect. Praise laura everybody's welcome back. Welcome back man. We're here to talk about. The ghettos of adulting are the worst hood we have ever ever ever endeavored to live in the good. The bad elitist has two trials the twists and turns the temptations the taxes and the tries of being realized adult in the year. Our twenty twenty one twenty one one one. I said that earlier shut. What's your home girls. They again twenty one and one ramos said that there was a there was off jamaica. Deacon at the church got up and said something about in the year twenty anyone thing so now i just can't stop seeing twenty when he when it's a great gift that raimo gave us because i definitely earlier makes twenty one. This was the update. How are you. i'm here. i'm doing okay. I am working and learning Been doing lots of work like professionally but also been spending some good quality time sitting with myself thinking about things Noticing some growth. I was talking to a little bit early on text message like how like self work is really intensive when you working on yourself when you're trying to you know think critically and reflect on like you're the ways your ways your wife you know how you're navigating certain Trying to improve your systems. It is really really important and necessary work but it does take a lot out of you know just doing a lot of thinking and reflecting on why act why my reaction is in response are what they are And thinking about what. I can do to improve and grow and continue to get better and this is all important work. There has to be done. It's just really emotionally physically and mentally taxing. But it's a a gift man. It's the gift to do it and Trying to growing better. it's always. It's always a gift to grow is even when it doesn't feel like it. You end up seeing you know later on absolutely and i think that's one of the things that we as millennials I think that's an area where we shine in terms of like questioning convention and not just doing things because tradition says so and that's not to be disrespectful to tradition. I think it's important like you know interrogation and criticism doesn't always mean take trade and just a of respect but sometimes you need to reassess and think about you know think about things in terms of their utility and whether or not we can be doing things more effectively and i think our generation is shining and push in area as we push back some of the norms and traditions and conventions of our culture. In time you know even some of our practices how we relate to ourselves how we relate to our families You know the ways in which our our traditions and families have shaped our lives and shaped our trauma and all that other stuff and trying to do better for the future. So that's why i am. I know it's really thoughtful in deep. Do not doing so please. And just kind of in that space. I'm just in this house by myself. Child try and enjoy myself since. I'm here by myself girls all that could be done right. Now actually sit in your room and you stare at the wall in the back of your mind. You can't say hey girl let's have a chat about l. Coup don't was onto that live. Talk about why you do. Why did you do should be better. But i'm proud. I'm proud of you. That's hard work hard work to just want to be better.

A highlight from Mama Said Knock You Out: 5 Easy Ways To Prepare For An Individual Education Plan
"So is the time of the year where we are getting ready for. Our children's individual education plan meetings so with that being said this episode is for parents who will be attending their first individual education. Plan meeting otherwise known as iep. I love to say. I people like what i need you. To spell it out so for newbies out there who are attending their first. Iep meeting because you have finished going through the process of your child being tested and now it's time to sit down with goals in also for parents like this is not your first rodeo. And we've been doing it for a while and we always improve in empower ourselves with knowing more on how to go into nyepi p meeting in for new listeners. Out there who do not know what an iep or individual education plan is. It is a plan that outlines what specialized instruction related services that a child receives with a disability that will help them gain access to the curriculum and make progress in school and what is awesome from a different perspective is not just the fact that it's a document that holds the school accountable because you have as a team decided on what the goal is for your child. You know in his broken down but then also how many hours of instruction will they receive to accomplish the goal so when you are attending. Ip meeting which usually it occurs around january for some school districts. Depends i would say anywhere between january. A in maybe april. Maybe i think it just really depends on. Your school is done yearly to prepare for the next school year so the meeting that. I'm getting ready for the work for my son will be for the twenty twenty one twenty two school year another time that you will want to have an iep. Meeting is when you feel as though you child's not making progress with their goals. Something pass happened where you think there needs to be a shift so you know you have a meeting for that as well so this year because right now everyone's trying to get back into schools and we're creating an ip for my son. There's some things that. I have to really look at in consider when i received my propose. Goals show usually what happens. Is you're have a scheduled meeting for your i p meeting. You should be receiving the proposed goals ahead of time. It may be via email but always regardless of any emails that you received has to be in an iep document depending on what state you're in they look different because you need to have a heads up in one what they're proposing and you want to be prepared. You don't want to hide your document. Let's say the day before that doesn't give you an prep time so usually who. Let's say the week before. After i get appointment date. I will follow up with wind. Should i expect to see the proposed. Ip goals and like the week of the meeting is on a who as on wednesday. Ashley the previous friday. I'm sending the email to make sure you know. Did i miss it or have you not sent yet. Because i would like to see it. So that is part of making sure that you have the document but before you get to actually having the document in your hand. I have a process. Okay which. I'm going to share in a minute. So last year what i did was is mandated so even with kobe help. Everyone received an updated. Ip their child for twenty twenty two twenty.
The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"If you've been listening for a long time thank you. If you're new to this show walk on. I've got to ask volunteers to opt-in we get. Hey comments on apple podcasts. Our friends at apple do a great job of removing the blatantly racist comments but unfortunately there's nothing we can do about the ratings if you love this show and if you believe in our mission it would mean so much to us if you leave us. A five star review and positive rating on apple podcasts. Thanks so much and now. Here's the episode. Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion. Everything you said so true. It's about power in control in so many of my friends. I've been seeing the active on social media talking about what's happening in south carolina in taxes. Can you take our listeners. Just a little bit deeper into this. We know abortion bans. But what are some of those little incremental changes that you talked about that. They should be looking out for and ask citizens as voters. What is the way for them to speak up and speak out against it. That's a great question because a lot of the most harmful bills are some of the most wonky bill than i think. They're designed that way to in hopes that people will disengage from the conversation.

Session 196: Understanding Complex PTSD
"Dr pifer nine discuss some of the causes of cpt st how it impacts interpersonal relationships how we often overlook experiences as traumatic and example of what this might look like based on the duke of hastings from bridgeton and she shares some of her favourite resources for you to dig in a little further. If there's something that resonates with you while enjoying our conversation please share with us on social media using the hashtag t. bg concession. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today back to piper of course for having absolutely so. I am really intrigued by work. I think it's so important. So much of your work. Focuses on emerging adults identity formation and trauma and resilience and. We are going to be talking a lot today about the difference between ptsd nc ptsd which is complex post traumatic stress disorder. And i love her you to kinda just start by telling us what are the differences between the two. Oh yes well and when we're thinking about ptsd especially as it's diagnosed in the dsm five. Which is kind of our like bible for diagnosis views. Ptsd tends to refer to a single incident. That's called like an index trauma and especially simple. Dsp might look like that when we're looking at complex ptsd. The major difference is that it is the experience of repeated trauma that can happen over time over if not this like single isolated event but it's the experience of ongoing trauma abused experiences of lack of safety that then can show up with. Cpt sti complex did yesterday so there does not need to be one activating event and then multiple stressors after it can just be accumulation of stressors in traumatic occurrences. Exactly exactly got it and can you talk a little bit more about like some of the nuances between knees. Like how might you be able to differentiate in terms of the diagnosis. Oh yes so when it comes to complex. ptsd often. what i've seen in my experiences is that people have been misdiagnosed because they often take for granted their ongoing experiences the life experiences that they had the place where they grew wild the abuse that they might have experienced. They don't think of that is trauma. They're just like that was just my child or a door. That was just my life a must so oftentimes it can get missed in therapy or even school settings other settings people are just not labeling it for what it is so when we're thinking about really distinguishing between ptsd complex. Ptsd able to pick up on some of the things that will show up. That can give you a sign on that. Cpt se is both being pulled back into memories. Feeling like you're stuck in loops right like the early experiences that you've had that some of the trauma that you experience had a keeps you in these cycles that you can't quite break out of noticing being on edge hyper vigilant really independent. I'm feeling like you can't really trust rely on other people having these beliefs about yourself in the world around you sometimes it shows up his agitation. Anger irritability man. Sometimes we even see at to where people have a hard time accessing their emotions like this ongoing experience of having to be alert to keep yourself safe when you're in this emotionally or physically unsafe physician on for a long period of time that sometimes people will have trouble feeling. I'm being able to convey their emotions. So those are all kinda hints that you can pull together if you're looking for c. p. really trying to label it correctly. So it's interesting that you mentioned onto paper. That is often misdiagnosed. Because i'm thinking now so my home training in cpt as the is a fairly newer terminology. Right like i don't remember getting any training in my grad program about cps. So i would imagine that lasted therapists have not done any research or really know very much about cpt as the which is why they may be missing it. Oh exactly i mean. In my experience. I did not get training on being able to identify. Or even the sort of therapies that are appropriate received. Ptsd something that's getting more attention especially as we think about racial trauma as a potential complex ptsd cps diagnosis didn't even make it into the dsm five. So it's not surprising that the field is still sort of catching up at being able to identify it and then knowing what to do Of course of course. Yes so you mentioned earlier before we started recording. That in your work. You're seeing this kind of being represented more in your client load in terms of black women presenting with c. p. c. s. d. presentations. And now you're mentioning the whole ratio trauma in which we know especially in this last year. Lots of people have you know have been experiencing already experiencing some of these racially traumatic experiences. He used a little bit more about that. In like what. It might look like like. If i'm listening to the podcast right now. how might i know. This may be something that. I'm struggling with ru. That's a good question. So when we're thinking particularly in the work that i do which tends to be with black women were able to reflect on what your early experiences were and one of the things that i've noticed. Is that black women. This is talking abroad terms. Of course like there's a lot of different nuance there. But there. there is the experience when you're actually asked to reflect on what your childhood was in what you experienced that you take it as it is. You're just like that's what happened happened. You know. I might have been exposed to some some difficulty. I might have experienced racism. I might have experienced constantly. Having to prove myself. I might have experienced emotional. Abuse verbal abuse a might have have been exposed to violence or a lot of instability. But that was what it was right and this sort of when it comes to the experiences of these ongoing trauma one of the things that we know is that the more you avoid and the more that you don't actually encounter at deal with and sort of really dive into being able to explore that with support the more that it's going to continue to impact you in ways that you may or may not even realize right so when working with mike is particularly and they're talking about sort of feeling numb or feeling like there is this disconnect between themselves in their identity like this sort of this a little bit of like what i think is fragmentation. That can be fine that there's things to explore about ongoing experiences of strain and you hit the nail on the head when you talk about this year in particular the dual simultaneous traumas of the pandemic in especially the disproportionate like impact that it's had on black and brown communities. That's a complex trauma like the anticipation of death and being exposed to the threat of death. In those that you love in yourself. That's an experience of trauma and if you layer on top of. It is racial justice reckoning that we're having and the just the absolute horror of this last year of what we went through as a nation as black folks. Then you have that other layer so it can activate some of that child had stuff that you might have not addressed and then you can have this perfect storm of just really feeling out of control feeling overwhelmed and having some those complex.

"This is berry truths. I'm hate clipping off. Today we're remembering the mod arbery. It's been one year since he was killed while on sunday afternoon job through a residential neighborhood in brunswick georgia so today a buried truth live event that we held like a lot of things these days during the pandemic on zoom we wanted to share a bit more about what it took to research and produce season three the story of ahmad arbery. So let's jump right into it. Our moderator for the discussion was alita mcallen director of education for w. a. b. she started by introducing the five panel members. Greetings everyone and welcome. I'm so happy to be here with you all end today. I'm honored to bring you guys. Today's panelists these wonderful. People teamed up to bring you the podcast that you know and love to learn from. I'd like to start with the woman who launched and co executive produced berry truths jan berry. We also have senior producer at wav. E dave barry swain we have emory university alum and he graduated with a bachelor's degree in philosophy and law. This is sage mason. I have emory university senior history in english creative writing double major. Currently working on her honors thesis on felony disenfranchisement voter suppression in florida cameron caps and finally emory university. Professor director of the civil rights. Cold cases project at emory co author of the speed. And you know him as the voice of barry truths narrator in creator. Hank clip it off. Hello everyone now. Before we get started with this conversation. I wanna remind the audience of what we got from this current season. So everyone stay. Tuned listened to the season trailer. In february twenty twenty ahmad arbery was out for a sunday dog and a quiet tree lined neighborhood near the coast of georgia. He never made it home address. Your emergency ahmad was chased down by three men in two trucks and was hit by three shotgun blasts at close range. I'm hank klebanov host of the podcast berry truths. This season isn't just about how a mod arbery was killed but why the men chased him in the first place and what it says about the long arc of racial attitudes in america. This whole thing about it is just a black man down. The road in a white neighborhood was just bullshit. There's a desire to catch him dead or alive so they got their guns and they loaded up like a policy now. I'm going to bring you some new details about this case will hear from those who knew him on and we'll learn a lot more about the three men who trapped him on a residential street. I'll trace the roots of their families back. Hundreds of years and examine their surprising connection to the early days of slavery and crucially. I'll examine why it took seventy four days to bring criminal charges. We want barnhill and jackie. Toxins job anybody complicit in the murder and cover up this season of berry trees is about killing that took place and twenty twenty but it sure feels like a case at a nineteen fifty. Maybe that just proves the point. We've been making him buried truths that when we understand who we were. We can better understand who we are. John let's start with you with the landscape of podcasting changing consistently. How did this show evolved from the idea of what very troops was supposed to be to the version of the podcast that we can here today. I'm happy to take that question in. Hi everyone thank you for joining us so the important thing to know about the back story here is that we actually started talking about making buried truths in two thousand sixteen which is pretty early iranian in podcast land Podcasts have been around for a bit But of course they've continued to increase in popularity every year since then and when we first started talking about buried truths we were considering whether it could be. a documentary. Was what was more familiar to us at that. Point in time but documentaries are really heavily dependent on visuals and these are important stories that needs to be told but they don't have a lot of visuals that go with them and so as we. As as public broadcasting atlanta was exploring how it could end. Turn podcast space had this wonderful rich material and just an astounding expert who was willing to give his time to the project and work with us to create this podcast in figure out how to translate his class into a podcast. It made sense for us to pursue a podcast instead of a documentary and we were really intentional about understanding the podcast landscape. We look at what what the shows that were out there Which ones we thought would have comparable listenership podcasts. There's a lot of true crime right. may go without saying that true crime is one of the most popular Jonah's in podcast listening. And so we saw that there were true crime elements to this story but we did not only look at the landscape. We were also really intentional about listening to the audience and getting audience insights so we did focus groups and we heard a loud and clear that it was really important to people to understand the history and get analysis and understand the context. They weren't interested in these stories from kind of a sensationalized. True crime angle. They were interested in it from the history in the context so with based on audience insights based on listening to people who were engaged with the station who donated to the station a range of different ages. We decided to frame very differently. And it's what sets it apart. It's not just about the crime but it really digs into the history in the context And if you if you want to understand that more of course if you haven't already listen to the show but also read the comments. I'll be honest sometimes. I just scroll through the comments because it makes me feel so like fulfilled in proud of what we've done in those comments that people leave on platforms like apple podcasts. We'll get a clear sense of the impact in what sets it apart. Now dave from understanding season three was already in the works when video of moderate was released. So i'm sure that people who are watching us right now wanna know when did hit it happen and what show. What led you all to

Second was her original wedding. Mr snerdly yes. Is it an unmarried. Oh boy i knew that. Mr cramp was in the city and endeavoured to persuade mr francis to give his daughter to him. This was known to mr sneed. Who had all the chances to prevent it. But i suppose that he had no idea that his francis would break the engagement with him after the invitations have been issued like. I said it is a logistical matter. Because they already sent them out. And i would hate for my added. Tom relatives to show up to the wedding. That is no longer happening. So would you rather just cancel the wedding or like shotgun wedding with your new partner realize okay. Well i'm already something that's gonna show. I'm like i'm van.

Black Agenda Radio 02.22.21
"That brings you news commentary and analysis from a black left perspective. I'm margaret kimberly. Along with my co-host glenn ford coming up. Black people in britain go to prison at roughly. The same rate as african american and british activists are also demanding prison and police. Abolition dr gerald who says the united states is finding out that it's no longer a unical the world with washington in command of everybody else and we'll hear two essays from prisoners of the american mass. Black incarceration regime but first summer. Mcdonagh's see say is it justice fellow at the center for constitutional rights and an organizer with the group called survived and punished. Police claim they are the force that fights for the rights of victim but in fact to see say the police prosecutors and prisons only create more victims. She explains i am a member survived and punish new york which is a part of a larger coalition of survived. Punish chapters that currently are in california and in chicago so surrounding the national prison industrial complex. Abolition coalition and we believe that presents detention centers. All forms of law enforcement attentive. Prosecution are rooted in systems of violence so survived and punish us prison industrial complex abolition as a framework and practice towards ending the criminalization imprisonment policing and surveillance survivors of domestic and sexual violence. And this work is really important because we know this type of targeting and criminalization is especially true for block queer indigenous and immigrant survivors. And why did you pick. The words survived and punished. What do those words mean to you. Yes i was not part of the forming of and punish so i. I can't speak to why those were the words that were chosen at the time but in my understanding the work that we do is really trying to highlight how the criminal system the criminal punishment with dumb. Really use the survivors as a tool to further criminalization rate. So if you talk to law enforcement to prosecute her they will say that their whole exist dents in the work that they do it to protect survivors to protect people who are harmed by other individuals or by certain systems and that the work that they're doing but what we're trying to point out. Oftentimes actually survivors are punished. They are punished for surviving either interpersonal violin. By of survival whether that is trying to defend themselves against various forms of views the system then turned around and punish them for that survival and that that they are not deserving of the protection that the chris system claims to be providing for other people so essentially survived them punish as a statement is saying that survivor and like i was saying particularly black. Queer indigenous and immigrant survivors are punished by our criminal legal system by the very nature of the prison industrial complex. They are punished for whatever. Active survival engage and and that the system is actually not in place to keep survivors and in the case of the organizations. You work with a particular woman's survival was at stake. Her name was melissa. Alexander yeah so. I think marissa alexander's case is a great example of the work. That surviving punish does though. I was not involved in organizing around marissa's keys but just for some background for folks me know. In may twenty twelve marissa alexander was prosecuted for aggravated assaults and weapons charges. Because she fired a warning shot after her husband attacked her and threatened to kill her right. So this happened in two thousand ten the incident where she fired a shot and then in twenty twelve. She was prosecuted and charged with these things. And i was even more ridiculous. If you will about nurse alexander's is that this is in florida. The same trayvon martin could be killed because individual feared for their lives or because of stand your ground laws or whatever you wanna say but for this. Black woman marissa alexander who was in her home and fired a warning shot that killed no one because she feared for her life was trying to defend herself. The system decided that she needed to be punished and proceeded to prosecute her though. A lot of organizers around the country work to really elevate marissa's keys she was. I believe facing a minimum a mandatory minimum of twenty years in prison at the time and there was a lot of advocacy that happened. Like i said various organizers. Some of them who are now involved with the ride and punish to really show hypocrisy of the system and to really highlight the injustice in marissa's case and so thankfully mirth alexandra is out for that did not serve the twenty years in prison. But she did go to prison. She was prosecuted and she did spend time in prison for that and this is what survived them. Punish truly highlight. Is that how is it. That marissa alexander -vivor violence. Who was really trying to do what she needed to protect herself. Fired a warning shot. How is it that she became individual. Who was prosecuted. And it's because these systems again don't really exist to protect people. But rather to further criminalize and create chaos and harm in people's lied you'll logan survived and punished is made up of three affiliated collectives and each of those three as a somewhat different approach to the problem of violence against women. Yes so i. I do want to say that. While the issue of criminals survival domestic violence sexual violence interpersonal violence does impact when they're not a higher rate to ride and punish those not position itself as an organization that fully works with women. You know we work with women. Nonbinary folks translates we work with. Basically anyone who survived was a survivor and been punished by system. It just so happens in the society that we live in a majority of those people are men but yeah so i wouldn't say that necessarily approach the issue differently because like i said before. We use prison industrial complex. Abolition as a framework and the hyper criminalization in these types of harm i think our focus is a little different so like i said i'm a member of the new york chapter and so in new york for a lot of our work is around mass connotation trying to push governor cuomo team you the power that he has a new york to release people to basically short sentences and allow them to be released from prison. So that's a huge campaign that we do we as individuals who are detained in new york. State prison identify survivors. We get their stories. We have their stories concise on our website. And there's various forms of see that we have been doing our founding in twenty eighteen of the new york chapter to really push cuomo governor cuomo to provide workout mutations than he is currently providing and then outside of that we also do work around supporting people who are incarcerated so we have a newsletter inside outside newsletter so that means people who are incarcerated and again identify survivors can contribute to the newsletter. People who are on the outside members of our coalition can also contribute to the newsletter and the newsletter sent inside to people as a way to share stories poems. Whatever it is that will uplift others and then we also do work to put money on people's book while they're incarcerated and then i personally and some other folks who are part of the and punish new york do what's called a like a mass defense came campaign and so that means were sort of like the case of mersa alexander where there were organized as really uplifting her teeth as a way to say three marissa but also to say free all survivors of criminalize violence or survivors who are criminalized for surviving. React supporting currently a survivor. Hearing york city. Name tracing in the carter who has been criminalised by the manhattan being office for defending herself against her abusive husband survived unpunished punished as you said calls itself abolition organization lots of organizations these days. Say that they are abolition but it seems that for some of them. This is just an in principle kind of statement with no real game plan for dismantling the system in the

They make better jokes than i do. That's generally the tit for tat. And but i feel like for me. We've mostly been that weird thing. That happens online. Where you you like what someone does and so you follow them and then you interact online but then it's never you never get to sit down and actually have a conversation so this is like one of the first times we've gotten to sit down and have a conversation other than over releases shoulder shows work to take off the headphones.

This little called morning drafi At the college humor offices where they would come in in the morning and do a little like warm-up doodle and record it and then posted on facebook at the time back when everyone thought that pivoting facebook video was going to be the future. The thing to do. Turn out great for everyone off. No websites crumbled as a result of that decision. We're still going strong. And since then we've gone independent and now we're doing doing drop on youtube as our job. There's five of us on the team and and that's it. It's kind of a drawing. We'd like to think of it as a drawing. let's play almost. Yeah let's draw. It's like i think people suggest to us really ridiculous things to draw or not ridiculous and then we make it ridiculous I think it's just i. I think is kind of the reason that people enjoy the show is that they get to watch for artists struggle massively to not just do the things straight up and like make something weird out of it. I think it's great because you are saying struggling. But when i look at the art that you guys make are like this is what you made under duress flawless with thousands and thousands of people observing. You do it and be the gun time. Wise did you. Did you both know. Caldwell and nathan before you got hired or was it like they're looking for artists in and they brought you in because you both had that professional background. We had that spark.

How are you. it's so good to hear your voice. How are things congratulations. Thank you. It's good just working on the trying to get things together and thank you very much for taking the time to have this call with me. I know you have got to be swamped. But i was like. Oh my gosh. Even bo not shocked or surprised but delighted. I'm i'm so thrilled for you. what's the like. What can you us about how this came about. I actually did that. Vote challenge last year at one point where you took like. They're both logo and stuck it on a picture and i think from there just did a little spin offs and a lot of people were talking should feed it and then it came about to wear a writer for vogue wanted to just do a little blog post and i was like yeah no problem and then from there that how connected again with me for the magazine. That is just amazing. I'm so happy to be talking with you again. Because i'm going to re release the conversation you and i had last year. I can't believe it's been a year since we both. Can you believe that your episode first aired in february of twenty twenty and now we're talking briefly on the phone and february twenty twenty one and you're invoke wax. It just goes to show hard work is paying off and the recognition is showing now. Yes and so well deserved you have a beautiful vision. You always have had this beautiful vision and the thing that i love about. What's happening for you now is that you didn't feel compelled to change that. You didn't have to do anything different. In order to be recognized you can continue to be yourself and you can let your girls be themselves it you find. That's been a farming in some ways to or do you feel like you did have the chain. I'm fan. I don't think he did. But what do you think no. I haven't changed. I haven't changed from the beginning. I've stopped to what i've always done. I love of into just setting. I love just playing with patterns and prints and florals and just anything. I can really get my hands on so i haven't changed. I did more to what. I am especially now pay. I'm gonna take a little bit more timer. I'm gonna add this now. Because i like the way this sleep looks with this silhouette or is just more adding to what i already had their as my foundation. But i definitely have not changed in a sense of trying to conform to what somebody wants to see or what somebody likes like. I still continue to do me. And what we like. Yes that is exactly what i find so powerful about this because there's a lot of people that are like. Oh i wanna get into blank magazine. I need to do something different. So that they might see me and there's no You continue to do what you are doing. They will see you and should it's like the mainstream called up with you as opposed to you. Having to change to get attention am surprised though too because of the fact that i didn't change anything and the part of it to this vogue magazine. This is not a children's magazine. Women's fashion anybody up going on in the fashion world and then to have two pages of children printed in an adult magazine fashion. I was just like this. Is beyond what i had ever expected or even thought of last year or the year before when i started my instagram. Just but i hope though it's being recognized in the right way and manner and not just because it's okay. All of a sudden people want to start paying attention to black black writers black. You know people in this type of field that was never really loud or how that way paid regards to where is now. I don't know companies let search for black people so we can put them on our page and have a square. I like to reiterate that a lot as well. I'm not changing for you if you like what you see. It's because you see something there. That intrigues new. And not be as of the color that you see in the image. And i would say that this is a long time coming. I feel as though there has been a lot more sustained attention to black contributions as it has been all along so you just late they really. They're just late. And so i certainly would never take on any type of. Oh you're just getting this attention now because you're black that bullshit things because we're black like violent in police abuse attention and praise just for being black. That's not a that's not a thing you have done such beautiful and amazing working. You always have and the idea that this magazine is now. Seeing that is wonderful and exciting. But you have always been wonderful and exciting. And then i just love about your story. You continue to be yourself. Continue to stake out your claims and continued execute your vision and you'll be happy and if somebody sees a big magazine Whoever sees it will recognize that. And there's nothing that you have to let me ask you one last question because i know you're in the middle of home schooling the girls. How have they responded to all this attention and all this i love the stories that told about them and how they have their own unique vision their own unique style and i love how in your parenting of them. You are encouraging them to embrace that. You're not trying to get them to change. They're not they have no idea that they would even probably want to change. How have
