My life You basically fell in love with my husband tried to do my children and Just took them and just cut off contact with my hometown.

And and then i just went through the process of Of healing myself at the tolerant knowing what to do and Dimona ten forty nine was not living on this anymore and i it would break my heart to see people suffer through united just being bullied or getting into a relationship that they could get out of. That was unhappy and many many people live with you know without so flow because we were talking back.

That's not what i said. Or that's not what i did or and so then you just become long magor mart laar crazy. Did i just make that open. You know and then when this happens all the time you know you really end up questioning very own self. you're your you're your mentality and There's a different level of narcissism having as a parrot because they're the people that bring you into the world you know other is someone who gave birth to you so you would think i'd be the one to protect julian Not you an and teach you to be strong and You know my mom didn't do any of that and make bad choices and then not pick narcissistic men.

Interview With Caty Caldwell And Jessica Odeyemi
"This is the first of a series of technically two hundred talks or roundtable conversations. Where it's not just a one on one. But one onto plus. And i am very excited about this one because we have miss jessica odor yemi once again from ibm technical product manager. And we've got Ms katy call technical program manager at facebook. Such a pleasure to have you both here to night so i just wanna start with one question for each of you in. Why don't we start with katie. Katie what's your first memory of being excited about tech my first memory of being excited about tack. It has to be. I think in my freshman year computer science course. It's like an introduction a computer science. I just remember. I had started at princeton as a chemical engineer and i was just like i was in my first chemistry class. I was like this is like watching paint dry like this is not like the chemistry. I know from high school and i was just really excited about this idea. Setting chemical engineering. But when i took my first computer science course everyone had worn me before the course that was going to be so challenging difficult and i just remember just like enjoying every assignment and every assignment just felt like it felt like a puzzle. Felt fun and i. I felt like i was spinning. Just an inordinate amount of time. Just focus on by computer science work over my chemistry homework and i hadn't even got into sort of like the chemical engineering courses yet and i was like this'll make sense. Why by studying. Something that i am like. Great like begrudgingly. Getting through versus has studying something that i love so i just remember just being super excited about the next assignment and computer science like always wanted the next one wanted to do like the extra credit. I love that and jess unless you that same question. Yeah so let's see. I got into the tech industry per se a little bit later in life. But i remember the first time i was excited about anything. Simulated was an elementary school. When i found out I don't know if you've ever heard of them ike rube goldberg projects Like i don't know if you've ever seen a movie pee wee's big adventure. But at the very beginning he has all these contractions that connect to each other to do different things. But i kind of find out found out an elementary school. There was. We were introduced to the the concept of a rube goldberg project. In thought it was so cool. So i did something similar for science fair project and i thought it was the coolest thing ever As far as you know the tech industry goes. I think that happened much later in life for me. So that probably didn't happen for me until i was working and i think we've chatted about this a little bit before but i was working in the oil industry and it just occurred to me that i was out on the rate drilling wells and that was great but there was this whole other world behind what we were doing. You know software insistence. That was kinda powering. Everything that we were doing out in the field. So i think that's when i first got into Tech per se jessica. I did the rube. Goldberg is file. When i was younger. i've loved it. I went to the. I went to the national competitions. Like and since. I'm so close to purdue growing up so i would go to indiana. Just go see what the students The cooking up so had logged. Rube goldberg did that. When i was like what is the most extravagant way to crack in a like the prices so so member game mouse trap. I love that like that.
Power of Black Women Voters With Marcia Chatelain
"I recently wrote in forbes about how kamala harris may be able to heal the wounds between black women and white women but i defer to our terrific yesterday on these issues. I'd like you to meet dr. Marcia chatelaine a provost distinguished associate professor of history and african american studies at georgetown university here in washington dc. She's a scholar of american life and culture previously. She was an assistant professor of honors in african american studies at the university of oklahoma in norman. She earned her. Phd at brown university and her undergraduate studies at the university of missouri columbia in journalism and religious studies fellow aspiring journalists. They go. Marsha was a terrific expert featured in the recent pbs series. The vote on how women fought for and won the right to vote over an eighty year struggle or more welcomed green connections radio. Marcia thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Oh you're welcome. You're welcome so our start in the heart of this issue. As i said in my introduction i've understood the black and white women had a kind of love hate relationship if you will during the suffrage battles as i understand it. Black women wanted white women to include abolition in their struggle. But the white women leaders believe the combining the two would keep the legislation from. What is your take on it. Tell us the truth. Because you're the historian so the issue at hand between abolition and suffrage are deeply tied. And that's because a number of figures in the suffrage movement were first activists in the fight against slavery and i think the poignancy of the battle for women's suffrage was the fact that many of the white women who were at the lead of the suffrage movement were anti-slavery and they had supported. Abolitionist may have believed that there was a moral reason to end the system of slavery but when it came to suffrage they were divided over the issue of universal suffrage Some do not believe that black women white men should equally have the vote. Some did not believe that black men and black women should have the vote. So i think that the suffrage movement really exposes the limitations of racial solidarity even among people who were on the right side of history one issue were not able to transfer that sense of grace to the issue of suffrage. And that's where you see the fault lines. In the suffrage movement really emerged from it was the fact that they did not want include african american women visibly or prominently or ideologically in their fight for the right to vote because they believed that it would degrade the quality of the vote of degrade the preciousness of the right and a number of these women again. Even though they were morally opposed to slavery they would not immune from white supremacist ideas. Okay so there's so much to unpack in there. You said something really interesting you said and i paraphrase of course but the the the divisions over the vote represented larger divisions in the racial schisms. If you will Racial solidarity behind the vote. Yes so one of the things that i think. A lot of people don't understand from how they're taught history is that we often think of the issue of slavery as one in which people were either pro or anti and it's often presented as a matter of north versus south union versus confederacy. But if you look at the movement to end slavery and look at abolitionists. They all had very different ideas of what happens next. They knew that slavery is a scourge on the nation. But they didn't agree on. What would it mean for african americans to be elevated to the level of status rather the level of a citizen and what that status should mean and so there were people who were abolitionists but they were segregationists. There were abolitionists who believed that african americans should be repatriated to colonies in africa. They were people who believed in complete and total social equality in some people believed in some level of social quality but not marriage and so those debates among the abolitionist movement i think are very much mirrored in the debate among white selfridge's who should get the vote i who should be allowed to vote. And what measures should be taken in order to ensure their desired goals
Menopause in Miami with Dr. Leo Blachar
"Dr. Leo Blaster who is a OBGYN and name's doctor. We talked about names a lot that stands for the North American menopause Society home in Miami, Florida, and he's joining me for the menopause across the globe Series, so welcome. Thank you. Thank you for having me and South Florida 72°. Bright and sunny. Well it is there is a little bit of snow on the ground and I think it's a high of 33 here in Boston. So we're like a world away. It seems like so tell listeners a little bit about yourself how your practice has evolved and particularly what makes you interested in in marriage. Pause so I I'm down here in Miami, Florida. I've been in practice for over thirty years in OBGYN earlier in my career. The practice was largely o b and that has slowly slowly shifted and I have mixed feelings about what I'm going to say that we're stopping old be in about six months. But position that were in am looking forward to it. So the age range of my patients over the years has changed instead of the OB younger patients. There is a lot of patience in in the transition and of perimenopause and menopause transition and that is slowly becoming a a focus of of the practice and I need to be prepared and on for that. So in pursuing that I came across Lambs a couple of years ago and very impressed with the organization that they are what shall we say by the Dead You know that they are not friends and they're open to new ideas, but they try and say by the book which is what I've tried to do throughout my career. I did not try to sell patience anything. I don't try to follow Trends. I you know, I don't consider myself stodgy old fashioned, but I'm not going to do anything. So anything that that isn't the right thing menopause is a is a fertile area to do that a large part of my day is educating patients wage, um, making sure that they're not over tested that they're not over treated and so on and there's a lot of this is is education and life Europe against of course the internet you're up against marketing and you're up against different cultures. So I'm here in Miami in addition off. Lovely locals. We have patients from our neighbors in the Latin American countries down south. You are work by Yo-Yo Ma cello off a large part of my work day is inspect. Wow. Yeah, my workday down here is is is in Spanish style a significant proportion off of my patients are Spanish-speaking. Wow. Yes, dive deep into what is a typical day like or what is the population of women that you suck? Where do they hail from? And what is their attitudes on menopause? So the attitudes are menopause depends on what their parents attitude on life and what the doctors where they came from, for example, so very lovely patient two days ago. She's in her mid-fifties. She moved to Miami from her country in Central America two years ago where she was placed on a hormone replacement that she was very happy with that. She would like to continue except for one little problem. It's not FDA-approved up so she can acquire it but I wouldn't be against her doing that except. The other problem is that she has developed now that she's in her mid-fifties a couple of months comorbidities. You have a couple of health problems, which we need to get a handle on before we move forward allowed to continue or hormones. Now, she last took about three months ago and she does not feel about. So what I have noticed in this population is We want to feel well they want to feel well they are proactive about it. They do not want to wait until they're deep in the menopause to to start out feeling well patients come in in their early forties
Best of Unladylike: How to Get a Yoga Body with Jessamyn Stanley
"Hello ladies and welcome back to the best of unladylike for the next few weeks. Carolina and i are dipping into the archives to share some of our favorite episodes and we are working on new episodes. We promise starting march thirtieth will be back with brand new episodes of unladylike every week for now we are listening back to how to get a yoga body with jessica in stanley an episode that relief flips the script on what we think. Yoga bods should look like as well as just simmons journey to claiming her space on the matt and caroline. It is a very relevant replay. Because i mean for one thing. You and i have both been doing at home youtube yoga this past year in lockdown or at least like attempting to do youtube yoga. Yeah i've been trying to keep my motivation up I had to quit yoga with adrian. Because she was too chipper. But i'm trying out some new classes with with different people. Wow wow caroline. Yoga shots fire. I yeah i am bracing myself now. For all of the yoga with adrian fans that we are out here I mean when. I think about it though. The pandemic has been such a hyper body conscious period on so many different levels. I'm not just talking about like hand washing and germ transmission. you know. yeah and one thing. I've noticed too though. Kristen is how the language of that pandemic body angst has really evolved like last spring when this all started it was a lot of jokey fat phobia you know like watch out for the quarantine. Fifteen and as lockdown has worn on. It's just settled into talking about our corentin bod well and now we've been in it long enough that researchers not just talking about caroline. There are sweatshirts. There are hats. There are there are full oetzi stores just ready to outfit you with quarantine bod merge but i mean what was also wild to see is how we've now been it long enough that researchers have coined the term this for ya because constantly watching our own faces on screen is truly fucking with our own self perception. Yeah to be honest it would probably be weird if we were all feeling our personal best these days. And if you're not if you are struggling with some body angst right now. This episode's guest yoga teacher justin stanley. She's got you and they'll just take it from us We heard from one listener. Amanda scene after this episode first aired.

Introducing Chicano Squad
"True democracy was a myth at america's founding and today. We still have a lot of work to do. I'm joel and gloria and in a new weekly show from the atlantic and wnyc studios. We explore the powerful ideas that shaped the united states. And what happens when those ideas collide with people's real lives. Listen to the experiment on apple. Podcasts guess the podcast. Politically reactive is back. Politically reactive is an essential guide to what is happening in the wave after wave of unprecedented events in the dumpster fire that is american politics and it's hosted by comedians and longtime friends w. kamau bell and Valu and men. Like i personally really miss the income out around oakland. He's just like the smartest nicest guy on the street talking everyone. Then that's exactly what this podcast feels like. It's just like your smartest friends who've been way more up on the news than you've been able to stomach really laying it out and hashing it out for you as they talked to all the creators and the thinkers and leaders who are doing the work to defend and reinvent our democratic experiment so listening subscribed to politically reactive. Wherever you listen to podcasts. The cut the cut the cut the cut. Yes the inauguration of the vice president was this amazing historic moment. Give vice president-elect. The united states comma debbie harris and i was absolutely moved by it. The first woman vice president the first. Vp of color being sworn in by the first latina supreme court justice the woman barrier the color barrier for vice president is broken for evermore and then it just turned a little too prematurely self-congratulatory all these talks of like the barriers are broken. It's like it's true. Yes i matter tremendously. But it's everything that comes afterwards it really signals change. It's just so soon to pat ourselves on the back. Because i are rocky and difficult. Ask someone who has been i. I was the first latina to create star in their own network sitcom in tv history and american. Tv history. Obviously let the let. To latin american countries have done it and also i was the first latina to star in a pixar movie cars three now as crews ramirez before coco right before cocoa. Let me tell you. Comedian writer and activist cristella alonzo. We'll tell you sometimes you don't want to be the first the temptation to break a barrier completely away from the work. You actually want to do the huge question that i had for you as like how do you go to these places that have never been done before and still be choosy. Because i heard that you turn down the view. I did i did. The view has an audience of two point. Five million people every single day walker stella was offered the job as a host that would have made her the first representative of the connex experience regularly seated at that table but part of her fight is choosing her battles. One of the big things i had was that i grew up in poverty so growing up in poverty actually gave me the ability to say no because i know what it's like to come from nothing so at the end of the day if i end up with nothing. That is my familiar spot. That is my comfort zone. And also i've always said i just love. I love what i do. I have so many people in my past. You know they do. Say i wanna be rich and famous and i always start thinking that's going to be downfall right off the bat because how much famous enough. How much money is enough. If you can't put if you can't put like an amount of it like a goal something you'll never be happy. It'll never be enough when the view came up. And i love whoopi. The raven coal wallis was back in that time. We had a great a great time. But i didn't like the energy energy of it for me when i got offered the job. A new immediately. I was gonna be miserable. Yeah i felt like the fighting was going to get worse. i felt like just. Is it all worth it like. Is it worth my mental state to have this much money. You know and i said no i said no and my agents were like oh i get it. You're negotiating. here's more money and i was like. Oh yeah no. I don't want the money. So i so don't want the money they're like okay but for me. I'm choosy. Because i also love this thing that i do so much that i want to be happy doing the thing that i do. That's the weird thing. Cristella has been an activist for years but after the two thousand sixteen election she took a step back from show business entirely a break from being a first a pause from blazing paths to maintain the paths. That already existed. People were asking me like why. Haven't you created another show. Why haven't you do this. Why haven't you done that. And i said honestly. I don't feel like being funny right now. I think that you know. Dolores huerta is my mentor. One of my best friends no way. Delors quarter the iconic who cesar chavez helped organize the farm workers movement she actually coined the phrase si se puede. I love her like cool. Yes you know. And we're both members of a nonprofit where she and i dream election cycles will do bus tours together to get people to go out and we you know we try to focus on spanish speaking communities farmworker community to get people to go out and vote and we always talk about. How when you're in the movement when you're in a movement and you're trying to see progress it so hard to see the actual progress because we always want to see the end result so as we try to go towards the end result. We don't take time to celebrate the little winds here and there. The lettuce and i have always talked about that. The celebrating the winds along the way the winds along the way get you through the losses. Do actually celebrate like. Do you take a shot like do. Yeah actually you know what actually yes. Actually so Dealers loves a good like tequila and she likes to dance. She likes to listen to listen to live music. We've had those moments and even after like during elections. You know once the elections done. We drank the tequila. We went out of the bar once we were kicked out of it because it was closing at like four in the morning or something outside and all of a sudden we start saying okay so what we need to work on is creating a plan to get texas to be able to register voters easily online and data and we start talking about how to get people to register to vote. That's how we work. You know so again. I had said no to the view because it wasn't me but spending the middle of the night in new york city with the lord is talking about how to get people to register to vote online and other states like texas. That feels right to me. I just want to do what i can to see. That might people are safe. And by people i mean like my friends and my family and just anybody. I could try to help an amplify. And i did it and now i feel like i'm ready to go back to work in my first project was the donald squad. She's the host of a new documentary. Podcast called chicano spot and
Jessica Lessin, founder and editor-in-chief of The Information: "Im kind of all business. One of the things I miss about being in an office...is actually the ability for people to see different sides of me and me different sides of them."
"Hey everyone it's currently today. My guest is jessica lesson. She is the founder and editor in chief of the information a subscription based digital media company covering technology and business subscribers get access to deeply reported stories of the inner workings of companies like apple google facebook and more before going out on her own jessica spent eight years as a tech reporter editor for the wall street journal. Jessica thank you for joining me and welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me carly. I love listening to this podcast. So i'm thrilled to be here. I was saying just as you got kinda miked up. Its feels very weird to be on the other side of interviewing journalists like you but we're going to jump into it which is first question. I'm a standard question. Skim your resume. I wanted to be a reporter For as long as i can remember and had a series of internships starting in high school at my local newspaper where i wrote about why there were so many nail salons and how they could all stay in business so didn't really have a sense of supply and demand back then but was interested in in poking my nose around i then interned at the associated press the boston globe and the wall street journal and clung to that internship so that they would not let me leave the building and convince them to hire me so i worked as a tech reporter at the journal for eight years covering everything from the rise of online video to apple to google yahoo the rise of the internet. If you will that be took me out to san francisco and then after eight years at the journal i loved covering the tech industry and it seemed to me. That tac was disrupting news in very very fundamental ways most significantly. It was getting publishers obsessed with online advertising and traffic in a way that i felt was really lowering. The quality of news content and so i launched the information as a subscription business to swing back to quality over quantity and i guess seven years in We have one of the largest newsrooms of tech reporters around the world in her breaking major stories every day. We're going to dig into so much of that. But i'm curious. What would people be surprised to learn about you. I think probably many many things. But probably that i never ever ever thought i was going to start a company i actually remember grousing to my husband. You know maybe a decade ago. Why is everyone leaving. Big company jobs to start a company in the world be better if they were adding their talents and energies sort of into the traditional system. So i i. I think even wrote a story at the journal about like you know. There are too many entrepreneurs or something to that vein but you know lo and behold eventually you catch the edge and i think the world is just made starting a company so i was gonna say appealing but as you know carly times is quite tough Be anything appealing but it just felt like there was a huge opportunity and i went for it but it was quite a swing from sort of being very down on entrepreneurship to becoming one. You mentioned in your skin of your bio that you began your journalism career at a young age and went onto the crimson while. You're harvard We're able to turn internship into a job at the journal.

The best of unladylike for the next few weeks were dipping into the archives to share some of our favorite unladylike episodes and look on ladies. We miss y'all it has been a while and we are making new episodes right now right this very moment as you're listening to this. We are working on new episodes of unladylike to bring you starting march thirtieth when we'll be coming back for real for real with brand new episodes every week but in the meantime since we've missed gel so much like caroline said we are bringing all of our and y'all's favorite most responded to produce of unladylike. Yes oh kristen. We i wished how to be a bad mom back in july of two thousand eighteen and it focuses on the idea of ambivalent motherhood in other words. Maybe you didn't want to be a mom. Maybe you're struggling with the idea. Of what motherhood means maybe some days you just don't like your kids and that's normal and that's okay and we wanted to bring this episode back to your ears because we felt like it is super relevant right now and it might be a comfort actually to a lot of moms out there who are really going through it during the pandemic trying to manage work school. Zoom works zoom school. It's tough out there for a mom. Yeah i mean even though carolina you and i do not have children. We are not parents but we know that parenting is never easy. So we've been thinking a lot about this episode as we've been seeing all of the headlines about how hard it is for moms all of the moms who have left the workforce so that they can come home and actually take care of their kids. The ways of the pandemic has reinforced quote unquote. traditional gender roles We have a feeling that there are a lot of folks who probably feel like bad moms right now folks like listeners. Lauren who we heard from back in two thousand eighteen right when we first published this episode. She wrote nobody tells you how fucking hard being a mom is. Motherhood is supposed to be beautiful and amazing and if you feel anything less than that you aren't a good mom or even a good woman and you all remember wrote that two years before she knew that a pandemic would be coming along too. Yeah and it was just incredibly moving to hear from so many moms like lauren who finally felt seen and felt validated. And i just really hope that this episode can continue to do that for parents. So let's get into it so you you read us an email. Yes and i was wondering if you could read that email for us. Today erica here. Guess i've been thinking lately and your first episode on abortion. Made me think more about women who are mothers. but who don't want to be mothers recently. My husband and i were in a discussion about division of household duties. And he said to me face it you just don't want to be a mother and indignantly replied yes i do i love being a mother but somewhere in the back of my mind was the question. Do i really want to be a mother. I have a two year old whom i adore so the ship has sailed on whether i get to be a mother but do i really want to be a mother. Now that i am one. What does it mean to be a mother in today's society. If i really am as much of a feminist as i believe that i am why does it feel like one of the most damning things my husband can say to me is face it. You just don't want to be a mother

"Better With Age" (with Rep. Gwen Moore)
"Most recent song that you have gotten stuck in your head Obviously every rose has its thorn. Ono heat of the moment by asia has been out of that one. i love the version. That south park does. Yes yes honestly. Every time. cartman sings on south worms. My heart wait for me. I never meant to be bad until you get to the so this week. We're joined by representative when moore and meghan gaily to tackle the following questions. What's wrong with framing the school reopening debate as a battle between parents and teachers. How will the for the people act. Protect voting rights. How can we reach out to our elderly neighbors during a time. That's been especially hard on them. And which one of us has a bone to pick with american idol. All this more right now okay. Lots of news to get to this week. First thing i want to talk about is really has been a heated topic once again. We're about a year into this pandemic and right now we're at a point where you know. The vaccine is is theoretically available but the people who need it or not necessarily getting it Meanwhile people who have children who are school age have been essentially trying to tutor their kids at home fulltime. In addition to the jobs they're already supposed to be doing It's put a ton of stress on caretakers women in particular And it has been really hard for kids. i've heard friends of mine. Who have kids who are exhibiting symptoms of depression which is so so sad to hear about But you know. Meanwhile there are. Teachers don't really want to be sent into workplaces. That are not safe where nobody is. Really taking precautions teachers unions and parents have sort of been pitted against each other in this this tug of war eliza what do you make of this parents versus teachers story and do you think that There is a solution to it makes them. I mean we've talked about the slot. It just i feel so bad about the way that this is being set up as like teachers versus parents and in some ways i think that states may be from the federal government like they don't want to be the in the line of fire so they're like parents are unreasonable. Teachers are being. You know simple insubordinate. And i just think that i just wonder why. We can't prioritize vaccinating teachers. I mean we're basically. We need everything that we know as telling us that kids need to go back to school for a myriad of reasons like you. Actually there are too many reasons to even less. Why kids need to go back to school so if this is so important. That's one two. We also know that teachers over the past years have gotten such short shrift aaron. We have talked about teachers who by their own school supplies. Who have who have gone above and beyond to take care of you know needy kids in their classes and like why if i'm a teacher. Why am i believing. It's like i underst-. I think that. I feel a lot of empathy for the teachers to be like. Wait a minute you say. Everybody needs to vaccine. But we're cool you know. We just need mitigation steps in place so teachers now have to police kids and tell them how to wear their masks. Which is it's that's tough social distance. Who some of the steps include making class sizes smaller. Will the class sizes need to make smaller. Teachers be made smaller Teachers don't do that. Teachers aren't like my class smaller. You can make the class smaller and then the teachers divide like amoeba now so the teachers to deal with each smaller class size. Like where's this. Who's handling the more. Where's where's the beef man like. Here's the solution. Fewer kids What bright and the social distancing and all and so. I just feel like we're getting information. That seems very reasonable. Of course social distancing.

"Question next question next question though. Here's my next question. I wanna talk about all the things like how we're going to get to a post covid world and you even imagine it how to heal from the trauma of this year and how to find and shared joy despite it all. Join me for season. Three of next question. With katie couric launching february twenty fifth with new episodes dropping every thursday. Subscribe and. listen on the iheartradio app apple podcasts.

If i've got what it takes to be a mom influence her a great so there's an adorable image of your daughter wearing this little heart onesie robber that would be at amazing post for light to know it. Great numbers and expert at this sort of thing. Probably the expert. She is the founder and president of both reward style and like to know it. These are the platforms that make influencing possible. They're huge in the past ten years. Influencers who work with rewards to know it. Absolute more than eight billion dollars in products for brands from gucci to walmart. Now most of my pictures on my account are my kids so my asking hamburg if my pictures commercial it's almost like asking which might kids is more commercial. Which when you put it. That way is as uncomfortable as changing in. A communal dressing. Remit tj maxx. Let's see the cute little tiny feminist that one would be gold toe to toe it so many people would love that piece. They would wanna have an chaired by piece. That would do very well now. In addition to helping phones or sell you products reward style. Also trains women to be influencers. It helps them figure out how to make their lives shop -able together. We have pioneered a new industry from shanghai to la and berlin to sell paulo rewards style. Influencers have grown into an incredibly strong thriving community of entrepreneurs this is reward style. I've interviewed about one hundred influencers now and most of them have told me i have got to get on reward style. They say the award style training program is like the hobbit for influencers. It's often said that reward cell is like grad school for influencers rewards style. Millionaires in what that means is these are individuals solo lucre noor's who've been powered by platform may come to. They've built their business with us and through our platform alone day have earned over one million dollars. It's incredible and they're women. Are they all women. They are all women all one hundred of the reward style. Millionaires are women. I can't actually can't think of any other industry that has minted so many female millionare's in such a short period of time can you. I can't maybe only hollywood. Maybe this industry is second fully hollywood.
Are You Actually Kinky?
"That's hard for people to understand myself included. Because i think for a long time i was like whatever you have your shit you do behind closed doors and that's your business. I don't really feel the need to interrogate too deeply beyond a basic sort of understanding. That shouldn't shame anyone else's kings you know and so when the internet seized on the gripping details of army hammers supposed cannibal fetish as like. Should we even be lampooning. This is this a legitimate kink. Would there be a right way to do this. But then i realize everyone was talking about. What a wild fixation this cannibalism thing supposed to be and there was much less focused on what army hammers accusers. Were actually saying about their relationship. Which was fetish or not. Their relationship started one way and then it took this turn we at the cut. Believe these women who are making these accusations and we believe that the men they were involved with are hiding behind the mantle of kink because kink isn't an excuse for abuse but in order for us to understand where the lines actually get crossed as a culture. We're going to have to engage with the ideas of kink much more fully in all of its richness and deep deep complexity. We understand that like you can be like vicariously like excited by violence even though real violence is disgusting. And you don't want to actually hurt people but it gets like framed in this way where it makes it sound like if somebody is kinky there beyond criticism and that's not what it means. This is lux traum. And i am a longtime sex educator and an abuse survivor someone who thinks a lot about abuse kink i think people think oh la king

I'm starting no closing in on thousand where it's not that much but that's a lot to me so we'll see where that goes because everybody everybody's slugging Get this stuff. History down while still unconscious. You have a good enough memory to do that. You know the photograph really help refresh my memory on of cases Out of stuff. I remember pretty clearly within a lot of is just blurry simultaneity. That goes on my head. It's all going on at the same time. It's hard to make a linear track at molly's events. I had a of fucking events. Were i'm still in the sixties with when i was a kid speaking of that You are a new york native. Is that right. Yes from gambling went to high school in brooklyn. How did music find. You thought was just always there was See usual junk with the beatles and all that stuff coming you know i was. I remember early on. Like i thought the shangri laws to commercial and i didn't appreciate how wrong it was until later when we're doing a bad situation and you know we're kidding because the leader of the pack is kind of like a soap opera. I guess the way. Some people think of justin bieber now you know was just the commercial sales. The masses looked at with now. I think it's all genius owner. That stuff that i thought was commercial you know and everybody liked to locomotion and within also website story was such a big deal before the rock and roll. I was kinda lead into music through movie soundtracks. I mean people don't get what a huge cultural event west side story was. I tried to explain that. It was as big as the beatles. What do years before. Three years before. My mom is from the bronx and born nineteen forty four and west side story the beatles. She was at shea stadium when the beatles played shea stadium. Yeah says she. She was always talking about west side story so i knew that it was a big deal for Teenagers then yet like we go when tony we get shot like all the girls cry. It was like when you're crying over the beatles weather on. But i had a friend who was a chase data. He said he hear anything yes. She was one of the screaming girls. What kind of have you say. You're not into the shangri laws. What kind of music were you into locals it. I was really big flat and scruggs fan. Probably pick up on them. From the beverly hillbillies actually lee became inhabitable at bluegrass up. And all that does lead into the rock scene. I went to newport folk festival on sixty six this writing about that. Which was year after. Dylan elect curricula controversy. I'd seen pete seeger. Say that he actually didn't try to cut the cable with an axe. But i don't know if you know all those stories supposedly Fucking seager went running at the stage when dylan luzon and tried to cut the our line with an axe. And then like alan lowell. Maxon grossman had a fistfight. All his stuff. Let's go and somebody should make a movie out of newport sixty five absolutely you look great by the way. I can't believe you lived through all of that stuff. And you're just like you seem perfectly slowing down a little. I don't know about what's gonna happen. With touring i love can get out there and do the airports hotels anymore. I know some like thirty year olds. Who don't know if they can do that. I shared in the intro. You know a few of the seminal artists you photograph but in many ways it seems like your photos led to Culture change often like look or was right on the tip of like punk new. Wave like you are. You are photographing right before. Things became public in a way before. Pictures of debbie before they are the music for sure. 'cause screen magazine. Put those a couple of those things and before we have records. I'd just on the borderline at that in the records. I have a question about something a little off. Subject to that which is around activism. what's your form of of give back with last tour in america. We're playing from russia with love and we put the big remember if remember. There's a big presidential seal that somebody faked and fucking trunk actually got in front of it took a picture with it behind him and added the russian eagle on it was like a fake version of natural seal so he actually. Somebody threw it up behind him somewhere. Some event and we would put that up behind us. Played from russia with love counts as activism complain on twitter. And whatever you know yeah. I think you're doing some stuff with blondie for the bees as well. I remember that these which is important pollinators. We need pollinators right in always in art music culture. We need pollinator. So i see what are you thinking about mostly these days. I've just been kind limbo for while. I was kinda waiting after the election to start writing or on a memoir. Take like years. I can't. I can't no idea i can't tell what it is. You know it's too much stuff crammed together too much of a short space. I don't know. I liked to physically right in every was my agent was saying you know we can get you somebody to do the interviews with and then transcribed but i liked to you know writing a whole different dimension and is this the first time you will ever ridden something or you right for your photo.

Thank you cracking as like being a look more and like feeling like you're a part of a community because you are so thank you next question will. This is like you know now that we've experienced but talk about it so any advice for look as graduating the university. Our undergrad in a pandemic. Oh man this is. This is tough. I mean i would say. Find some way to celebrate your accomplishment. 'cause rule leads to be able to get through your studies and graduate in the circumstances that we're in like that's a major accomplishment so even though we might not be seeing big graduation parties or the traditional methods of celebrating. You know find a way to celebrate yourself because it's a big deal and congratulations. And i'm sorry 'cause this shitty. Yeah i second that i wanna say like second everything said and i also wanna add like i know it's typical or customary to like have a photo shoot for graduates. I didn't have one.

Fictional Women Around the World: Abby Anderson
"And welcome to the first segment argus. Its subsequent of women around the world fictional women around the world where i highlight influential. Fictional women are influential to me or you listeners. 'cause you can always suggest i do feel like it's funny. I feel like you come up with this idea for a segment highlighting real women who are doing powerful things and i mike. But what about the fictional women like we wanted these episodes to be easy educational move like quick and we know what your expertise are. Thank you at one of those is understanding and really getting in doubt that these fictional characters that people connect to. So yes the thing. It's definitely thing. Yes and this will be probably once a month was our intention. But sometimes i'm sure events will come up and there'll be real women. Actually doing things might get move. I won't be offended. And for this first sub segment. I wanted to start with abby anderson which was actually your suggestion smith and i just took it and it was like yes. Okay wasn't a suggestion that you would automatically start here. Well i took it as a suggestion. We are you from the last of us to and there are spoilers in this episode. I feel like i've accidentally spoiled this for anybody. Listens to this show many times. But i will put it out there somehow. Amazingly avoided spoilers including from me. This one will probably spoil you a lot of big this game and samantha. We have this or say abby abby abby. I got a relationship with this character. I feel things and you do. I do so the last time it's too. I just became the most awarded game of all time and they cast their age show. Which was the day. I was getting many many messages. And i really am determined to be abby. All start working out. I'll take the death threats. I won't be happy about it but we'll take them but apparently everyone thinks. I'm more of an alley so i would happily play her to attacked less work canal for me right so. Hbo here. i am. I really liked that. You took a straw poll. You were so determined even though it had been telling you for months now because you saying. I'm and abbey and i'm like no no. You're not everybody individually told you know you're not you're ellie and you've just refused to hear it surprise when you texted me like was it a week ago. We were your way what everybody thinks like. How are you surprised. You told me your friends told you you're deli. I told you you're an la. How are you surprised by this. What is happening at least get one. I legitimately apparently this is a great way to rile me up to. Yeah i really wasn't trying to be obstinate. I believed it but because everyone else had a different answer. I actually sat no joke. I sat down in silence for like two minutes and just thought about like my features and the characters features. And i was like okay. I see say minds change. There you go. I did that really cute though because as we are talking about the show coming forward and whether or not who's going to be what cast they know we already had our predictors because as we've talked about previously when someone loves something so much your group is going to get caught up in it and you love things and fill things really deeply things. Last of us has to be one of those things to the point that you made sure that someone else played this so you can just watch and rebel in the field of bhaktapur like that was a really big important thing for you and i found that interesting. 'cause i being the spectator to because i definitely would not play. I don't get it. I barely able to play. Mario kart like to watch you revel get caught up in the of course all of us had fills after that about who is what and where even though is not as deep for us as it is for you yeah. I'm excited to see what happens to the show to see if people really get into it like they have other. Hbo shows very very excited. I mean the story is great. And i know we've talked about it before. But like baseline zombies have wiped out most everybody. The world is a violent a mess. There's no cure for the zombie thing until we find out that our protagonist is immune and. Elliot's definitely going to be one of these focuses for one of these episodes future injury for sure and there was a chance that a cure but it would have killed ellie. So joel the character. You're playing killed. Everybody in the medical facility are pretty much everybody before they can perform the surgery on elliott. So that's the first one when you start the second one. The main antagonists at first glance is abby anderson who killed someone elliott holds dear. I feel like it's really obvious. Who but i won't say Violently very violently kills this person but she lets ellie go so you spend the first half of the game hunting abby killing her friends absolutely hating this person like that's your drive and then just as you've reached your climactic confrontation with abby. It's finally happening. It cuts like literally right then. It cuts to her side of the story. And it makes you the game makes you play as her like on the same time line and as a player you build empathy with her. Are you're supposed to or at the very least you understand. She's more than just a villain. I've seen her described as the false protagonist. Yeah people were really pissed off. Oh yeah oh yeah. We're going to talk about that a second so it turns out. Her father was the lead surgeon about to do the surgery on elliott that joe killed and she has been out to get revenge on his death and the deaths of all the other. Firefly's day in the firefly's i've sort of this. Group is trying to find a cure in. Her father was the only one who could make the vaccine that they knew of at least and joel pretty much decimated the fireplace which was very very upsetting and by the way abigail means my father's joy in hebrew. She had a really close relationship with her father so during game play. She's in her early twenties so as elly and through a series of flashbacks. You see her as this teenager and then transitioning from that into a bitter cynical young adult who consistently choose revenge chance at happiness until the end of the game. She is certainly struggling with. Ptsd as i figure most people would be this world which in case we see play out in a series of evolving nightmares. She quotes stopped looking for the light and her quest for vengeance estranged her from many of her friends especially violent how violent she became including her ex owen and his pregnant girlfriend mel but towards the end of the game. You see her regain some of her hope only to just heartbreakingly. You see her be emancipated by this world that the characters live in. So she's somebody who absolutely needs a purpose at
Workplace Wellness: A Discussion. Ep 187
"Today we are going to be talking about workplace wellness. We're going to be approaching this from a different angles. I talking about what. Wellness is What we can do personally to improve our wellness at work. What managers can do to help employees with wellness at work and then sort of generally what makes something a great place to work because we've all observed that you can have the exact same job title in the same substance of your job at one organization versus another and yet be much happier at one place versus another. So what is that magic secret sauce. That makes someplace so great to work. And how can more of us either find those places or if we are in charge create those places so that is what. This episode is about But for this was partly sparked because sara is officially a wellness leader. You wanna tell us about that. I don't know how. If i guess it is official. But it's it's sort of a volunteer part of my job. I guess i would say so. I serve on the wellness committee for our healthcare system for the physician group of our healthcare system and it is a topic. I am very passionate about and think about a lot. I think i do have kind of a unique perspective because i have one eye on the pulse of resonant wellness and what that means as their kind of becoming physicians. I have another on the pulse of like a half administrative career which is my own and by secret weapon in understanding things. I think it a little bit of deeper web level than many is my husband because i also see what a very hectic clinical job with high demands and kind of a high value placed on what they do can how that intersects with the challenge of cultivating wellness. And so. i do think i'm a good person to be delving into this. At the same time. It can be very hard to know what as an individual can do to promote more wellness amongst physicians and it is a huge challenge. That is being faced at many different places As you especially all kinds of healthcare obviously has faced unprecedented challenges this past year but even before then everyone was talking about physician burnout and this committee existed even pre covid so Yeah it's really really interesting. And i'm learning and just a lot of things to think about in that role. Yeah no. that's a great idea that they're doing it. I mean since she said physicians turn out to be human beings who have bodies that fall apart. Brains that need a break and that among the people who deliver our healthcare. I'm giving a that is such a big part of everyone else's health To is probably important though has not necessarily been an important narrative in the past So we're glad that that is coming to the front right now so you had written a blog post recently. Which was your answer to everything On on wellness so this was on the personal side. So if somebody's like i. What are the things that make me feel better and reduce work stress. What did what did you come up with yet. Will the first of all the title was completely like tongue-in-cheek like i do not have the answered. Every this came from is is just like a longtime joke. Josh and i have had. Because when i was in medical school the first year we had to do a motivational interviewing exercise on like this baby eighteen year. Old nineteen twenty two year old first year med student. And i'm trying to convince this like fake patient to stop smoking and by doing motivational interview. And at the end i said. Now that's the secret to this whole thing. And i played it for josh. And he's like you just told that guy that you knew the secret thing and so that's that's become we use that phrase in our house when summoned sort of acts like the answer to something. It's like so easy. And they know everything and it's like obviously stop smoking. I never thought of it that way before. Twenty two year old. I hear med school. And just i'll bring you the secret to this whole thing. I'm sure he said it like very earnestly in cuba actor. Yes thank goodness you. Don't get to practice for the most part on real patients as a first year. Med student. That is so true Do get to spend some time with patients and more and more actually as as time has gone by anyway so so i just as i wrote this list i recognize that i did not know the secret. And that sort of sarcastically. Titled it if that kind of makes sense because everybody is different but the things that i did come up for myself that might help other individuals and again this is not on the institutional side but like what can you do within yourself getting enough sleep number one remembering why you're there each day like maybe even taking a moment as you walk into work and be like i am here to take care of patients until like work effectively as a team to make kids healthier like remembering that spending some time outside each day and taking effective breaks. Like using that fifteen minutes. You might have between sessions to take a little walk instead of just scroll that helps me plan. Obviously don't need to delve into that one. But i find it a secret to life for real. Spent some time teaching and sometime learning. I think that this does invigorate. Many at least healthcare workers is really really fun to see like students develop in part your wisdom and and teach them things to have at least one non work hobby that feels meaningful to you. I know this really really helps my husband to have something like guitar. That is just completely separate from work. That actually helps them enjoy his work. Paradoxically more to take time to thank others and be generous especially the people that you're working with not spend excessive money. We can delve into that a little bit. But i do think that's actually important. Don't think that you are super human or special. That is a complex trap. I've seen some physicians seem to get into like remember. Even everybody you're working with. Were all people and we all have jobs and we're all trying to do our best and finally if you a parent don't skimp on child care so that's a very best of both worlds tip for for everyone. I don't want to have you elaborate a little bit on this because when one of the things you didn't put his don't spend excessive money in here at so what how. How is that benefiting your your wellness a lot of i mean so what i've learned over the past few years is is physicians especially are notorious for overspending. What they're earning to the point where they become very very dependent on not even their jobs like sustaining but their jobs growing. And i think that that pressure Like if you were like oh. If i don't earn extra bonus i won't be able to afford my mortgage payments like if you put yourself into that kind of a position. We certainly don't but some people do that. I think that it it as a completely unnecessary layer of pressure to is already a high stress job. And so i do feel like structuring. Your life so that there is not a lot of financial stress and you kind of the future is well planned. And you're on a path

Coming Soon: The Pay Check Season 3
"The last year. Like a lot of black americans. I started thinking more about our collective history in america in my own place in it. My family had a plot of land in east texas near a town called mount pleasant. I grew up in arizona and as far as i was concerned. Texas was another planet big hats rodeos that show dallas. We drove through mount pleasant once. But i don't remember much as i got older. My dad would call and talk about the texas property. He daydream about all the ways that might one day. Give him a financial cushion. How would buy a life for him in my brother who has a disability. How there might be oil on the land or some kind of rare timber. And if i'm being honest. He planted some of those thoughts in my head to thinking the pandemic. And george floyd and i started thinking more about inequality in america and because i'm a business journalist. The racial wealth gap. I started digging into my past and texas. I learned that the land would never be our ticket to prosperity. It was gone. When i found why. I realized my family's story is a much different from other black americans. I started wondering how did other black people build wealth in america. And how did they hold onto it or like my family fail to hold onto it. That's what we'll be exploring on this season of the paycheck. The racial wealth gap the us the richest nation in the world and has been for a long time but while black people make up around thirteen percent of the population. They hold just three percent of all the wealth. I'm jackie simmons and i'm rebecca greenfield starting on march eleventh. We'll be diving into how the racial wealth gap came to be deeply deeply racist. He couldn't have cared less about the fate of the former slaves and He restored white supremacy as quickly as it could what it looks like now the next thing to god and his county. He control all the bank boards. He said nobody men's more money in this county than i do. Learn how to speak to me. You're not gonna get any any money and you won't be very long. I told him i didn't. I didn't know what. Jesus christ god look like. I said ten like you and what might start to close it. It is a way to repair a grievous injury and crimes against humanity against the black community. Yes it is reparations. Less matt call anything else to make you feel better.
The Secret Tapes of a Suburban Drug War
"Welcome to the show. I'm kai for huge numbers of people. George floyd murderer was either and awakening about the wanton violence and impunity that define so much police behavior in black neighborhoods or it was a reminder of the urgency of the problem. The moment seemed right for change. A lot of that energy got subsumed in the overall outrage over donald trump. and even today. A lot of people were fixated on his speech. He just continues to take up so much space in our public conversation but the problems with policing which sent so many people into the streets this past summer they haven't gone away either and we are going to return to them as often as possible on this show. We are particularly interested in how much unaccountable unmonitored power police wheeled as individual officers and as departments overall and as we know that kind of power can corrupt one of my colleagues in the wnyc. Newsroom george joseph spent months investigating allegations of such corruption in one police department and the small city just outside of new york. A town called mount vernon north of the bronx. George obtained hours and hours of audio recordings tapes. That were secretly made by a mount vernon police officer who was appalled by what he witnessed multiple allegations of illegal behavior. Stuff like outright theft from residents and brutality associated with that behavior. the tapes are startling. I never seen it on the level that i've seen in in mount vernon new ones being about this deployment. Is the racist appointment dogs. I said talent for confessions rob. Something needs to be done on a block this department. Something needs to be done. We're going to spend this whole show. With george joseph in mount vernon learning the results of his investigation to me. It's a story about the fever that consumed so many cities as they raced into the war on drugs decades ago at this point and how the choices they made in that fog still define so much about law enforcement in america to start the story. I asked george to set the scene in mount vernon mount vernon small really community rooted city. It's just four square miles. Really small seventy thousand residents Rate across the northern border of the bronx. but a lot of new yorkers. Don't even know it for me. In fact the first time i heard about mount vernon was in that naza song the world is yours from l. Matic oh he kinda shouts out mount vernon like one of the centers of black culture in new york. This small community has produced so many famous people artists actors denzel washington. Back in

Because i love reading all the best good such good advice and we get so many good recommendations we do and you listeners. Every time you you messages in whatever matter it is you often let us know about something that we didn't know about which is great. 'cause we yeah we wanna make things that you like and we don't wanna miss things that we should be talking about right. We don't use out. Like i have a case. Fomo big case a fomo. That's what i say. When i see you like look we have to do these things. I gotta keep up with the times right. Yes we gotta keep up with the times. And i guess speaking of that. We do have to sex in the city based messages at the top. Hit people yeah. I know i know. I do too keila kayla wrote Sorry if i missed pronounce your name. Hey love the show always have you doing great all that thanks Just checking in to say that. I would be obsessed with the sexiness. City reaction videos pitched in the latest episode. Thank you for existing. Thank you for sending this message and as we said the options on the table. If not i wanted to happen. I i i look yes kayla. Thank you so much for agreeing because this has been my dream. Youtube show that does exist to have my snarky very like less than likely people who would not watch the city so there with me to talk about the show. I think it would be so fantastic are due to and we have batted around the idea of maybe doing that occasionally on are happy hour episodes and if that's something people are interested in please let us know and i actually have access to sex in the city now and i haven't watched it just becomes a thing i did make you watch. So you and i got together at one point during our inbetween quarantine. Two weeks and then visit people times where i made you wash. At least the first half of the first episode right is the second episode the second episode and we were getting into the smirk on. Your face was worth it. The my partner walked in and he was like no and how that's why we only got halfway through so we moved it to because we had other plans. But i was like. Oh we have some time. Let me put this on. Yes yes. So i ready i. I'm holding off so we can get this first time reaction if this is something. People are interested in excited this to happen so much. Yes well listeners. Let us know. Jennifer also wrote about sex in the city. Sex in the city has always been one of the shows. I re-watch annually like friends and the office. No judgment please. So i definitely feel. I'm up there. With samantha and her cultural knowledge of the series. The dialogue is witty. The story lines are unique and the feeling of empowerment. It provides as always refreshing. The show can definitely qualify as problematic phase. For many of the reasons you both brought up on the show. However i find that i always leave it feeling like the women in the show are the powerful ones. I'm currently twenty seven. And i watched the series for the first time. When i was in my first year of college. I found it helpful in the same way. A younger sibling learns from the outlandish mistakes. Their older siblings make. I knew the lifestyles on the show weren't exactly realistic. But i did like that. The show provided an outlet where all these different topics and ideas and insecurities were being discussed and that way it is always been a relatable series for me despite having come from a different decade. I think that's because above all it touches on the feelings that are felt when you're single when you're an anchor when you're lonely and that's pretty tireless. Plus it helps that the characters call each other on their bullshit which doesn't always happen in. The real world is refreshing to see help. Women get a chance to watch the show and make their own judgment of it if you look at it through a feminist lens. It won't always pass the back. Del test or hold up to today's social views but similar to the mummy at doesn't mean it not enjoyable True i agree with all the things he said. I love that whole idea. That you're learning from your older dumps. She continues on and says i was thinking when you mentioned your quiz results how i read somewhere once that the different characters on the show were designed to make up one singular personality which is very true so that no matter who watched the show the viewer would always find someone to relate to realistically every woman has bits of miranda at her bits of charlotte caroline. Thank god business samantha. Rip's she's not going to be in the new edition and nobody is typically all just one type that's the magic of the character story lines and it's what keeps you equally engaged in all of them just food for thought. I wanted to share. Hope all is well in georgia. It is now and with their families. Pp s maybe. An episode of friends could work just saying it could be awesome. Which yeah. I just watched a really creepy interview of jennifer aniston and david letterman. And it was kind of in her prime. It will man the differences of what you see in these women who have been in the nineties characters to being like promoting in today so weird but that would be an interesting topic to have the conversation about the women of friends because you do have really extreme women in their their individual characters like monica's the ocd extreme controlling one. Then the Flighty girl who's kind of the manic. Pixie girl within that show except i guess. Maybe that's actually phoebe who is all over the place a little bit air headed. I guess but really ridiculously calming but yeah little bit interesting episode. We should look into that. Maybe we should do a women of sitcom yes that would be a large era. Yeah that would be many parts. I love this letter. I love hearing. People are so passionate and they love for the show Being able to pick out is true. When you watch these things you you do relate to these characters and this just different bits of of them that you see in yourself and can relate to stephanie wrote. I've wanted to share something going. On in my town lubbock texas regarding reproductive rights have been getting caught up on smith's episodes because i'm super behind i'm currently on your december episodes and you have brought up reproductive rights and if says and i was like i bet they would like to hear about the nonsense going on in west texas so within the past decade texas towns have been passing sanctuary cities for the born ordinance which i believe that there are currently thirteen sanctuary cities in texas and. They're all in small towns. There's a group called sanctuary city for the unborn that tries to get cities to pass the ordinance and their led by some guy whose name have purposely not remembered. Don't blame you. They came to lubbock and our state senators charles. Perry and dustin boroughs supported along with west and east texas right to life. They started a petition and he got enough votes for the ordinance to be voted by our city. Council are mayor. Dan pope and the other council members refused to vote on it but our state senators. All of the birther demanded that the city council vote. They said they would only after speaking to a law firm and the law firm said that the ordinance is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced after that. Our city council said again that they wouldn't vote on it but they did because of all the place they got and there was a city council meeting and it was a complete shit storm. A video with around lubbock groups were mayor. Pope says quote. Are you kidding me. After someone spoke due to the ridiculous nature of most people's comments they're also pro birth protests outside of our city hall. And of course. None of the protesters were wearing masks. Of course she continues the lubbock city council unanimously voted against the ordinance. Although he is pro-life mayor poke did say that. This ordinance has no merit and his unconstitutional. Of course that wasn't the end of it and the people who favored the ordinance started another petition so it can be on the ballot and voted on by the citizens of lubbock. We are going to be voting on the ordinance in may so be a hard thing to beat because although most lubbock citizens against the ordinance is going to be tough to get people out to vote in may the people who

Shallow rude made a short cameo on the podcast once before during my birthday episode last year. But truth be told. He's quite this serial entrepreneur and it seems so funny that i've never featured his story on gold digger in fact he was the one who told me years ago to start my own podcast.
