New Research Finds Daydreaming Is Good for Our Health
"Just published in the journal Emotions. Suggests that directed daydreaming can really be good for us as compared with the standard daydreaming, which usually has a lot of anxious or negative thoughts. The study was conducted by Aaron West Gate, a psychology professor at the University of Florida. Along with colleagues at Harvard and the University of Virginia. They want us to turn our idle moments to daydreaming about pleasant thoughts, which will boost our well being. What they mean by pleasant thoughts. They suggest things like happy Memories. Future accomplishments are maybe an event you're looking forward to. Participants in the study say they enjoyed directed daydreaming 50% more than when they simply thought about whatever came into their minds. The goal is to direct your daydreaming along a positive path, Tioga yourself a sense of relief and happiness. The result could be a longer life. That's a good result. One study found that over 30 years happy people had a 14% lower risk of dying early compared to unhappy people. That doesn't surprise me really. And in fact, researchers even have AH, happiness exercise to suggest Step One is making a list of five meaningful and pleasant things in your life. Step two is is sitting in a quiet spot and breathing slowly and letting your mind wander over those topics for maybe about five minutes, And the result, scientists say, is that you'll have more optimism and resilience in your day. Sounds like meditation like to me. And it's Dobson another way to get that done. And by the way, if you can do your daydreaming outside in nature, the benefits are even bigger. Remember that story we did a while ago on the so called nature pill. Researchers at the University of Michigan have determined that taking 20 minutes to stroll or sit in a place that makes you feel connected with nature can efficiently lower the stress hormone cortisol in your system. Researchers did the study to give healthcare practitioners evidence based guidelines on how to help their patients deal with the stress of urban life.

Leave policies have not caught up for women in office
"Are serving as state lawmakers across the country. But in most capitals, family leave policies have not changed. That leaves new moms with few options when having Children. Abigail, since he has more from member station W. K a. R in Lansing. Mallory McMorrow was part of 2018 so called year of the woman. When a record number of women were elected to office, she flipped a Michigan State Senate district in the suburbs of Detroit. Your first interview you're very hungry. Seven weeks ago, she gave birth to her first daughter. No. Uh uh. She's like the size of the microphone. You know, Like many parents, McMorrow is taking time off to be with her newborn. But while state employees get 12 weeks of paid time off, there's no parental leave policy for lawmakers. The answer to their constituents and their pay is written in the state constitution so they can technically take off as much time as they want The catch being they miss votes. I can't vote remotely. I can't proxy vote. I have to physically go toe Lansing. And I have a newborn who naps for 20 minutes and then is up again and ready to eat and be changed. Michigan is one of a handful of legislatures where lawmakers worked full time. Senator Vic Morrow said she spoke up because she could already envision attack outs criticizing her for not being in the capital to vote vote She missed so she could spend time with her baby. Are we comfortable with the idea? That we don't want working moms in the Legislature because that's the message unless we change the system, she says. This is a conversation she's had with many women that women can have it all. Just not all at once on that feels true for her in the Legislature. The
The Concept Of Metabolic Flexibility With Robb Wolf
"Let's dive a bit deeper into metabolic health in general. I would say the us stephanie. Facing metabolic health. Dem's it's become so so tough that you know. Diabetes is on the rise diabetes type two and obesity is on the rise and aloft. It can be let back to metabolic flexibility or the lack of it. Maybe can talk about more about the concept actually pollick expolit the actually means and why it is important. Yeah being metabolic flexible in in kind of a textbook definition really speaks to the ability to use a variety of different fuel sources that mainly really carbohydrate and fat though although by extension ketone very seamlessly with with little drama little difficulty really not a big change in in performance or perception. My wife is an example of somebody who's very metabolic flexible. She can go kito goes in. She goes out no headache. Lethargy no problems She can eat a fair amount of carbs and doesn't suffer. You know a really crazy blood. Sugar excursion she doesn't get like blood. Sugar crashes unless she really you know if she a ghost for the extra large mexican meal of beans and rice and tortillas and you know and right and then she can feel kinda rough from that like she can overdo it but she needs to really try to do that and in researching some material for my second book wired to eat. We did some side by side. Comparisons where i would eat say fifty grams of carbohydrate from white rice. She would eat the same amount. She's a good thirty or forty pounds lighter than i am but she would still her blood. Sugar would over a two hour period of time. Never really get above about one hundred and fifteen hundred twenty you know. Throughout the course of that whole experience was mind would top off round one. Ninety one ninety five. I would then suffer. Really cloud rafic crash blurred vision cognitive problems. I mean i was. I was kind of a disaster on that. And so this was you know it was cool in that it gave a little bit more concrete explanation for what i'd seen clinically. Which is that. This person seems to run great on carbs. This person doesn't and you know here's there's kind of like an actual yeah and just to be clear. You're not diabetic. North korea pre-diabetic new. But i think if i ate carbs pretty consistently i would get there rather rather rapidly. Yeah or or the minimum. I would suffer a lot of deleterious health effects. Light like a a vision problems and and whatnot. Yeah yeah so. How do you explain now. Like metabolic flexibility. Like how does it cure or is it just something that some people have in some. Don't i not entirely sure. I think that there's multiple factors at play here for sure. Genetics is a piece of this. People who have more of the emily's gene more frequency of the emily's gene seemed to do better with carbohydrates. They seem to digest them better but they also have a more favourable insulin response. It seems to keep the insulin. Or the blood glucose levels within tighter parameters and. Here's an interesting thing that i For me it was kind of this. This pretty deep inside. I don't know if it is for other people but an individual like myself to have good blood glucose levels after he reasonably low carb like probably below fifty grams of total carbs. Day sometimes more. Like if i'm really active or whatnot but it in that situation. Abbott pretty consistent blood glucose response throughout the day. People were very metabolic flexible or very insulin. Sensitive they looked like i look like eating significant amounts of carbs. And that's really the big difference there in the people who eat significant amounts of carbs and don't suffer the blood sugar crashes which then lead into the over over consumption of food writ. Large i think is where we kind of see the distinction between folks Twenty years ago. I was definitely a bit indie. Insulin hypothesis camp. I think over the over the course of time. I've i've come to the conclusion to. Yeah chronically elevated. Insulin levels are definitely a problem but insulin. In and of itself is not the primary driver of of Say type two diabetes and insulin resistance and whatnot you kind of a classic gary tops approach I don't buy into that but at the same time ni- fully on board with say like it fits your macrophages crowd. That will just say so. Long as composition doesn't really matter you just need to keep control of your portions and a free living world free living population. How you keep control of portions is really important. Not that many people have the discipline or the neuroses to do basically like a figure competitors lifestyle like that. That's a big lift for a lot of folks and so finding a way that people can spontaneously match caloric intake and output. I think is kind of where the ticket is. And that's where people kind of find own their their metabolic flexibility optimum belay yet. He asked a really good question. I did a poor job of answering it at you. Know what is metabolic flexibility. What goes into a defining it genetic so definitely a big piece. The gut microbiome appears to be a big piece. The caveat to that is we know it's important. I don't think very many people have any idea what to do to improve that. Like probiotics works for some people pre baddeck fiber work for others and for some people all of those absolute disaster and do nothing. So i think there's a lot of Charlatanism that goes around the gut microbiome. We know absolutely that. It's important. But i think the only thing that we can really hang our hat on is if we do something and has a clinical outcome of improving gut else and improving metabolic flexibility. That's great but we're not really at a great predictive place with that like i. I think there's a lot of goofiness that on the testing and whatnot. There is some lesser known or considered things like iron overload particularly in in men or postmenopausal women excess iron accumulation in the body is a pro oxidant in that pro oxidative status can increase inflammation and increased inflammatory state Degrades insulin sensitivity and by extension the Metabolic flexibility so. There's some big picture things that we know. Feed into metabolic flexibility and again. I think that we have burying degrees of control over those different lever.

"Will play the second of a back to back tonight They'll be in New York again taking on the Rangers at seven o'clock.

Trump acquitted in lightning-fast impeachment trial
"The Padres. NASA's perseverance Rover scheduled to land on Mars this afternoon. Retail sales jumped last month as we shopped more and Texas nurses tough it out to get to the hospital. That story in about 20 minutes. President Biden laid out a sweeping mission on Inauguration Day, declaring his gold to tackle the cascading crises afflicting America. He cited eroding faith in democracy and even in truth Growing inequity, systemic racism and the climate. The implication was that he would offer solutions or at least progress toe all of these crises. In reality, he'll have to pick his battles, and the choices he makes in the coming weeks will begin to set the terms of his legacy. More from Sean Zeller, editor at CQ Roll Call Shaun How do you see it? We've been living through a just a time where politics has become like Combat perpetual combat where the party's air after each other, where they have nothing nice to say about each other. So, although the outcome here was not what Democrats wanted I was struck by the tone of the whole proceeding, which struck me as quite somber and there were very few Republicans who were castigating the Democrats for like they were during Trump's first impeachment, you know, calling it a witch on calling and frivolous and ridiculous. For the most part, most of the Republican senators. Felt that Donald Trump had done something wrong here and they were. They were very sober about it, and we're not castigating the Democrats and vice versa. The Democrats were, I think, appealing to the jury jury, which included Republican senators and not trying to offend them by Saying that they were to blame for Donald Trump's behavior. Why was the tone different this time? I think Democrats really wanted to expand the number of Republicans who voted to convict they weren't they weren't expecting that they would get a conviction, which would require 67 votes and 17 Republican senators, but They wanted to get a number of Republican senators. And so you don't want to offend your jury and the tone of their argument. The House impeachment managers argument was Hey, we were the victims here. We were the people in the capital when the mob arrived, we were the ones fleeing from them and They praise. For example, Mike Pence the Republican Vice president Donald Trump's vice president, who they had pilloried for the last four years. They praised him for being there for overseeing the electoral vote count. Despite Donald Trump
The Fallout for New York Gov. Cuomo Over Nursing Home Deaths
"Year, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's could press briefings won him a devoted following around the country. It also earned him an Emmy Award. But today the governor who normally uses his time to deliver data and talk about vaccination efforts. Took more than 20 minutes to publicly excoriated State Assembly member who's been critical of him if you attacked my integrity. And my administration's integrity. Am I going to fail to respond? No. No. I'm not gonna do that. W My CI's Glen Hogan is here now to break it down a bit for us. Gwen, you listen to a lot of these press briefings. But today was well pretty strange, even by this year standards, right? Can you tell us what happened and who Governor Cuomo was going after here? That's right. So State Assembly member Ron Kim he is a Democratic lawmaker from Queens. His uncle died of covert 19 in a nursing home last spring, and today the governor accused him without evidence of a pay to play scheme regarding campaign donations from nails. Salon owners. Some of Kim's fellow state lawmakers quickly came to his defense and said quote was attack was clearly an effort to deflect further criticism of his own handling of nursing homes. No grand Kim has been a vocal critic of the governor for a while now, so so why would qualify ring this up now? Well. The governor's anger seems to have started last week after Kim smoke to the New York Post about a call between top Cuomo, Wade, Melissa Derosa and Democratic lawmakers. Now, in a partial transcript released by the governor following the post bombshell, it was revealed that the state withheld nursing or that she admitted that the state had withheld nursing home data to try to slow the potential federal probe into nursing homes. So after that story, Kim says he got an angry call from the governor himself, threatening to quote destroy him. And after that, the governor demanded that he retract his statements to the paper. He then says he got more texts and phone calls from the office here. He is describing the call. Was a 10 minute, one sided, screaming and yelling where I felt threatened that if I didn't act in a certain way to issue a statement, not tomorrow. Tonight, in his own words that there were a tradition. Cuomo's office sent out a statement vehemently denying he threatened. Kim, saying the office has a long hostile relationship with the Assemblyman Kim, like you mentioned has been critical of how the governor handled this four months, particularly his withholding of the true death toll inside nursing homes, and he's also criticized his controversial immunity provision, which was passed in the state budget last year. After big campaign donations from nursing home industries, and that provision basically shields nursing homes from liability for covert 19 deaths early on in the pandemic. Now, some context here. This public attack today on Kim also follows a letter that Kim and several other assembly members signed. Urging other lawmakers to support a bill that would repeal the governor's emergency powers. Can you give us some background on that, right? Right, so these powers they were granted by the legislator last year, the start of the pandemic. But now Kim and several other assembly members are trying to drum up legislative support to revoke these powers. So they sent out a letter yesterday to fellow lawmakers asking for their support, saying the governor had obstructed justice and withholding of nursing home deaths. And that not revoking the emergency powers makes the legislator complicity. Now, some experts who spoke with my colleague Chris Robin's earlier say, even if these emergency powers are revoked, the governor still has broad executive power because of the state's constitution, but also because of his, you know, ongoing state of emergency powers, but If they go through with this and revoke these emergency powers, it's definitely a symbolic political rebuke of the governor and his handling of the pandemic. Yeah, and just to remind listeners to. There's even more context here because all of this has unfolded in the two weeks since New York State attorney general a tissue James released the results of a probe that revealed the actual death toll of coded inside nursing House. Rate, So that kind of started this snowball effect in the last two weeks. She actually didn't have the total number of deaths, But the governor's office had for months and months been withholding that this number. It's the number of people who were in nursing homes but were later sent to hospitals where they died. In other words, the state had only been counting deaths that occurred inside nursing homes themselves. As an expert. I talked to said this New York was the only state in the country that was doing this. So it was only after this report came out that the state finally gave the full number of the deaths of people who had died in hospitals. There was also freedom of information, requests, a lawsuit and eventually a court order. Now that we have the full that led up to the full release of this data. So what We know now is that Cove it killed more than 15,000, New Yorkers who were residents of nursing homes and other long term care facilities, And that number includes nearly 6000 deaths that were not previously counted in nursing home deaths.

Caring for someone with a mental health condition
"Number of resource is are available for you or for those who need care. It is incredibly stressful. Dealing with a loved one spouse sibling apparent. A child who is dealing with A mental health issue. And while you deal with those issues Please don't forget to to preserve preserve your your own own mental mental health health and and for for our our clinicians, clinicians, and and and and you you know, know, I I before before we we talk talk a a little little bit bit about about self self care care I I want want to to talk talk about, about, you know the danger of caring for somebody who has Mental illness or is in a mental health crisis because that can impact your own mental health. And that also has to be preserved. Doctor stroll, do you You want to talk about that a little bit? Absolutely. We have the metaphor. We used that when we're on a plane, and if the air mass come down, they say, Put the air mask on yourself. If you're a parent, put it on yourself first, before you take care and put the air you know the mask on the Children who family members around you. And so it's ah, a good metaphor to use that the mass we're using now included But it it's just take care of yourself. It's very important that you're doing that self care and you are allowing yourself not to feel guilty or feel bad about that that we do have to create and carve time for ourselves. You're coping to care for the loved ones around us, especially if our loved ones are going through a mental health crisis right now that we want to advocate them for them. We want to support them. But you also have to make sure that we're helping her. Ourselves. Dr Jones. You know, that kind of goes back to what you were saying in our opening comments you know about the impact of the stress is not just on our loved ones, but but on us, too, is we're trying to care for them. You know, there are several coping strategies that we can use the five senses for if we're parents or care givers, working with someone or loving someone really Was coping with a mental illness. We can look at old pictures. We can read books. We can squeeze a stress ball. You can pet your animal a nan Immel or companion and stretch your muscles and one thing about stretching muscles. It's really very important to get good sleep. 7 to 9 hours a night is a really wonderful Sideline, and if we exercise for 10 to 20 minutes with stretching or yoga before we go to sleep, chances are we'll be able to sleep in a more sound way. We can smell fresh flowers. Oils, Campbell's perfume. We can listen to music. We can meditate. We can listen to nature sounds, we can find those on YouTube with no problem. And when we're looking at Movies or TV. You want to stay away from news that can be compounding when we talk about stress and maybe even a focus on some of the things that make us laugh. Because laughter can be healing actually, and with regard to tasting, we can eat. Minced or horrible teeth. All of these things may seem rather simple. But they're very practical ways to bring joy into our lives. And that's a good way of keeping balance when they're trying to care for someone who's in crisis, and Dr Tobias, you know for a parent, you know that that has a child that is is struggling. And certainly we've seen that happen with the With the remote learning, Um that's a pain like no other for a child for a parent to see a child suffer. Absolutely, because you know you're emotionally connected to your child. So you're going to empathize with them one of the things I would have to say that parents, you know we've talked about you know you take the health care. I agree completely. Seekers. When you're empathizing with someone, you're feeling their feelings, and so if you're kind of like taking on their emotions on top of your own difficulties. That's really going to put you over the edge, and you're not gonna be in a position to help anybody. Um, one of the things In addition to those other wonderful suggestions is for people, not toe neglects social connections, You know, Ironically, that's something that was difficult. That's what's causing our stresses that we're socially isolated from others because human beings are social animals were meant to be with other people. And so if you're handling We're trying to handle. You know a stress within your family. You can't do that alone. I really have a lot of empathy for single parents, um, and who are dealing with kids with mental health issues. And they need to reach out. You know you you you know, the expression takes a village to raise a child. Well, unfortunately, that's true. It does take a village to raise a child. You know, a family can't do this by themselves. So, you know, reach out Tonto. Their family members toe unison, the support groups that have been mentioned. Um But I really hope that no parent feels like the burden of caring for the child is on their shoulders alone because nobody can do this alone in parents need to reach out. For the support from others. Well, and as we saw talked about in the in the very beginning is you do not need to suffer alone it and you know, as As a parent who has dealt with some of these issues you know, with with a member of my family, you think when you're in the middle of it, that it's you're the only one that this has ever happened to that nobody could possibly relate, And there's a shame that there that's involved and there's you know there. But that is so not true. This is more common than I think people even believe. Right, And that's a great where where NAMI comes in the national alignments of mental in this like you mentioned, we have support groups for families, and what we like to say, my colleague says, is that self care is giving the best of you not what's left of you. And when we have our family support groups and you go into a room where you've actually see people come in and their tents and they're scared and like you, said, Eric, They think they're the only one there. The first person who has a loved one. Who's experiencing immense illness and you sit in a room or in this case, you sit online and you see the boxes on your screen and you hear people who know what you're talking about. Who felt what you felt. Who's seen what you've seen. You actually see people, their shoulders come down. They start to breathe and going to support groups and NAMI has three family support groups online a week. And three support groups for individuals who live with mental illness every single week. You know, you have to reach out and like you said, Eric, you're not alone. We say nominee Jersey that you are not alone. And at this time, it's particularly you may be socially distant. But that does not mean that you'd have to be emotionally distant or isolated. We have new ways of connecting and some of the amazing things. And opportunities we have through online is we have support groups now where someone from Bergen can be giving advice to someone from Cumberland. And that wouldn't have happened before this, So I really encourage people to understand that you were absolutely not alone. Especially now. You know, you might not be able to You know there's huggers and us here, miss Hugging, but you can reach out and a lot of different ways, including online and really looked for those support groups because there are people who know what you're going through and are ready to help you.

You can possibly imagine to have a group very smart people. Tell me that look You just don't appear to be absorbing nutrients properly which was a shock to me. Because up until that time. I thought i'd been doing pretty much everything right as it related to.

Look if you do everything right. Non-extendible time the other ten percent meta too much and i'd had a few significant number of sort of respiratory tract fictions over the years and the committed to grow infrequency took that i was taking antibiotics for something three to four times a week. And i think. I had a couple of different Forces all collide at once. But at the end of the day i had very few good. Bacteria had a really torn up gi system. And i was eating very significant levels of both protein in a variety of vegetables and supplementing. With what i thought at the time was a great multivitamin and i ended up finding that i was in the eighth to twelfth percentile on a lot of the central bottoms as minerals and even mino- essence. And so when these guys came back from that testing and said hey digital's none of them. Why this right. We have some of these minerals in the twelfth percentile I was really shocked. And just turn out have all sorts of problems traditionally with the gut and the solution from these guys was to say. Look west put you on a basic limitation diet and they gave me at the time one hundred dollars a day customized my blood bike in st nutrition regime. And like i said. I saw two vessels taking fifty horse stalls a day and i just realized it must be a better way so this way back then led me on this journey to seek out experts on.

There's a couple of different pieces. And i think we all want to cover off most basic nutrient basis an never put out any Around sort of supplementation being anything other than a path towards optimization i think food is i and you should always focus on food but in terms of what is great nutrition. My general framework is pretty simple. I think you want to eat to maintain your blood sugar levels and a healthy range. I think you want to eat a diet that for you does not lead to any sort of dynamic where you're very inflammatory environment. And i think you want to eat a sort of respite of metros in total calories that match your lifestyle and where that in line you wanna make sure. You're focused on food quality. Health quality pieces Seems to be of looked so often.

He's making some news as he leaves with dozens of pardons and commutations. Where there any surprises there. Steve Bannon, I think was one that had been talked about, but it wasn't clear he was going to do it. Bannen, of course, is his former White House strategist campaign strategist who was indicted last August on Or decide to an alleged conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. He was doing a crowdfunding effort to raise money for a border wall, and investigators say he was ripping off many of the president's on supporters. He pleaded guilty not guilty to those charges and the president giving him that pardon in the middle of the night, so big flurry of activity final burst apart in 143 in total. On and you know it's a these air always done something I see in the end summer controversial summer rewarding loyalists, But the band in one was one that we weren't sure is gonna happen. You talk about big flurry of activity. I'm trying to imagine what it's like inside the White House this morning as one family moves out in another trust, a movie of it. It's my favorite part of the inauguration stories, you know? Yes, there's a speech. And yes, there's the executive orders that Joe Biden will sign today. There's always the important stuff that matters. But I love the story of the choreography and complicated process of moving one family out and one family in in a house that is massive and has so many rooms. So you know they've already started the process, of course of packing up the trumps in recent days, But then, after they officially leave the White House, there is this. Incredibly complicated process that plays out through in the pandemic. On top of that, because the Biden team has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to have deep cleaning done increased cleaning and housework over the next couple of hours to make sure it's ready for them to come in. You know, they're bringing in extra people essentially to do this. But the other detail that's so fun is that they want to make it feel like home for the first family, but from the moment they first walk in, and boy it's a busy day, so you know you can imagine. At the end of the night 78 year old Joe Biden could be

"Everyone it's Martin from twenty minutes fitness. . I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected to levels founder Josh, , Clementi Josh. . Why don't you to be yourself? ? Martin's great to be on the show I mean on I'm josh, , founder of levels and John Interested in bringing metabolic fitness to the mainstream rates, , and so what does everyday mean? ? What is Metabolic Chiasso metabolism? ? Easy Way to think about metabolism is the set of cellular mechanisms that create energy from our food and environment that. . So this is how we power the processes in our body ourselves bringing fuel and they turn it into energy and so metabolic fitness or metabolic health is when those systems are. Operating . properly and you have often energy weight balanced performance without excess byproducts and so the way that that we're doing this is using continuous glucose monitoring hardware software analytics to close the loop between actions you take every single day in your daily life and the reactions, , your body experiences in particular, , the blood sugar response, , your body experiences, , and so this is this is the level, , is that closing loops between action reactions the way that behavior change becomes eating, , easy and obvious I, , and so we're the first metabolic fitness company greenest market, , and how do you define an excess byproduct like at what point you have too much nutrition what is it exactly? ? So, the , some of the easy ways to think about this art glucose itself. . So this is a it's sugar essentially, , this is a molecule that is the primary energy molecule in the human body so that metabolism functionality that we talked about is driven primarily off of glucose sugar and fat, , and so when you're consuming sugar, , it releases into the bloodstream and <hes>. . You know this is actually just tipping carbohydrates while they <unk> sugars that interest the bloodstream, , and so this triggers a cascade of processes, , hormonal processes, , and those tell your body, how , to op sort of appropriate that Lucas, , into the cells for for their useless contrived things like weight gain can. . Be for muscle <unk> expenditure for energy using mechanical loads on a commute for cognitive function in the brain. . But those laws get too high. . You actually have an inflammatory situation because Lucas is a very reactive molecule it produces what are called free radicals, , inflammatory cytokines. . I'll sixteen alpha you know these different molecule byproducts of glucose reactions that actually are very inflammatory and can cause breakdown of tissues and skin glaciation, , which is right leads to Browning of the skin and wrinkles. . All these byproducts that ultimately are are not good for us. . So there's a fine balance and glucose is meant to be kept in tight control and that's what we mean by byproducts. . Normally unless you have diabetes, , you should not have resistance to <hes> insulin release right so how does that really matter van for you know everyday use that a non diabetic <hes> being that we have been since glucose is the primary energy source for for the modern person we've studied the Post Disease State of Glucose for for many decades. . So this is called diabetes typically type two diabetes which a lifestyle driven illness that sets in your body can no longer respond to insulin you can't use glucose in. . Your bloodstream effectively, , it gets really high toxic levels. . So we studied that quite a bit but the thing is that all of us across the metabolic spectrum from healthy to to less healthy are all using net glucose and so there is an optimization function here where because these mechanisms are linear you know it's not it's not like a a threshold where you cross over it, , and then suddenly you're unhealthy that's kind of how start thought about a me to think about this metabolic fitness meaning the choices. . We make require focus effort and repetition to achieve optimization. . So it doesn't matter where you fall on the spectrum metabolic health de Choices you're making today are affecting your hormonal cascade causing qualitative experiences in causing quantifiable to potentially detrimental effects like weight gain, , where's performance exercise cognitive decline sort of all of the things that we struggle with our day-to-day are affected by the choices we're making that we don't really connect because we don't have that close loop system. . So now by by showing that the person who. . Doesn't have diagnose metabolic dysfunction. . You can optimize your choices daily see the data in real time, , make better ones, , and then achieved this sort of metabolic control where instead of having these this roller coaster of spikes and crashes in energy issues, , and again wait gained the rollercoaster. . We all ride day today <hes> that we kind of use our emotions feel way through. . You cannot have data and you can use that to achieve this the state of balanced control and you know lower flatter smoother continual on metabolic control. .

Hi Anthony I'm excited to have you on the show today. . Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself to kick things off? ? Yeah. . So my name's anthony cats on founder pipe price. . I founded the company about ten years ago it started out really just as an arm project like I was before this I worked in education was a high school teacher I was married to professional. . Athletes and I was still really active and I still play sports and was sort of looking for ways to improve my body and sort of slow the aging process and I started my by started kinda get more <hes> soar after do things and you kind of start to see like the wear and tear you know grown up in the in the Dark Ages fitness in the ninety S. . People used to basically do bodybuilding it wasn't very functional and that control my body in in. . So I start looking at like, , what would it winter pro athletes doing? ? You know because obviously they put the biggest premium on. . Their bodies and sort of the new kind of things if there was anything new that they were doing that I can adopt and when I did sort of the research on, , it was funny like the word recovery didn't really even a quiet sports like that. . We use it now and there's a category now but they're back then. . You know recovery meant like alcohol recovery or something you know. . It didn't mean the same and so the industry was really dominated by like sort of these like medical device companies that would make products that would live in athletic training room for in professional sports and mostly what guys were doing for like you know just. . To recover faster faster was was ice was ice tubs. . Getting, getting , a cold tubs and then, , and then they were icing their joints and then if you getting a massage in athletes paper massage and stuff, , and that was kind of that was kind of what the recovery will look like in two, , thousand ten and so I figured okay well, , you know if you can't really market a cold tub but athletes are icing their joints every day and they were doing it with plastic bags and ace route or Fight in every single day. . Yeah. It's . really wasteful and just like you know it's just not really convenient leaks in you know Dallas is kind of what they were doing. . So it Kinda struck me and around this time two, , thousand ten. . So beats by DRE was relatively new. . You know they debuted at the two thousand, , eight Olympics and the Osa basketball guys were wearing them kind of adopted this idea that you if someone wearing something right and you know if I could make something that was good enough for like pro athletes to wear that people would see it on them and because it's on their body because it would be like wearing potentially like wearing them, , you know on the sidelines or Photos, , in your starting, , it was Kinda before instagram. . So it wasn't really the access to like the behind the scenes of what these guys do is not really the same level of now because I feel now we have a much better window into what what sort of the athletes are famous people do in their you know when the camera's not on. . This kind of struck me. . If there was a documentary called the last dance about Michael Jordan and it was showing how different famous then where he was the most famous person in the world and he'd get off the team bus and they would just be like a thousand people waiting at the hotel just like watch him walk in the door and we don't need to do that anymore because now everyone has we see what people do in the cameras. . And we have twitter, , right? ? Yeah and so people and and then there's way more content right? ? So there's just way more content of like, , okay. . What is sort of what is an athlete? ? Do? ? They're not court in got used to be pretty mysterious people in an intriguing so I figured that if I could make an icing product because athletes have to is every day people see maybe what sort of kind of catch on A in obviously not a school would beat because it's music that's universal but I still felt like young athletes might adopt it. . So I had the idea to make like a really cool looking is compression device, , and so I started researching therapy. . The. . Compression was import element of it and I had. . A friend of mine who's a college basketball coach was regularly working out with Kobe Bryant and in Kobe was known as the biggest like that. . He he is more than anybody and there was articles well-documented about how he really took care of his body. . So I thought if I could make a prototype and I could show it to him and maybe you know maybe get into weirder sort of my thinking and I showed it to them I. . so I literally was cutting up wetsuits and going into like wetsuit factory's GonNa live in a beach community southern California. . So like there's some of the old Lexi factories that are still around back then so I was kinda compression sleeves and then taking ice bags from like you know from like rite aid or whatever, , and and and just kind of like putting them together these compression sleeves. . Trying to make something and you know he was really receptive to the idea that there could be a product that would make more efficient and it would actually look not just be so wasteful. . So I a couple times in he kind of gave me some really good criticism that was constructive and what I realized like this can't be an art project like this is not how businesses have to like if I'm. . GonNa do what I gotta do it. . Right. . So I gotta go get like. . So I was calling manufacturing companies and it was during the recession and people weren't really interested in talking about no experience at all and just sort of this but one company believed like, , okay. . I kind of had proved that I was like interacting with Koby in the disciplinary doing for him and they kind of just took a flyer on. . Maybe we'll try helping sort of developed sort of come the extra separable and so took about a year I. . Got I, finally , convinced him to do it. . We took about a year to kind of develop the product properly I had the idea to put an air release valve at is bag because when ice melts, , it creates like air pocket in compression doesn't work because it blocks a compression. . So if You have a button that releases the air. . The compression always makes contact with the ice and then you get your eyes compression therapy and that's that's the whole idea behind it was that I would watch guys ice and then I would see these like there's a big air bubbles forum. . It's like because the heat from your body is exchanging with the ice and then that creates natural gas, , which is A. . Form of like air and

"20 minutes" Discussed on Back To Work
"So for her a little bit different but for most people the I pat on the phone or the tablet in the phone. These are secondary devices that people are using non primary. So the idea that you would pay a bunch of money for an APP that you're only going to use sometimes on your secondary device. It's harder for people to be okay with that. It seems I'm not. I'm okay with it but it seems like a lot of people. There's there's more frustration associated with that. And if you look at the APPS that you have on your phone at least for me there's only a few APPs that I really use on a regular basis I use male. I use the mobile safari. I used messages. Now I've got a couple other APPS that I use but like there's one that I use probably four or five times a week called seconds and this is an APP that helps me do a hit workout my rower right so I bought that APP and I bought it because I use it pretty much every single time that I row. I use that APP so it makes sense for me but then I have a bunch of other APPS that I've paid for that. I might only use once a month or once every few months even you know or absent. I just don't get a lot of use out of and so of course. Maybe I would want a new feature but what I pay five dollars to upgrade to that to that new version of the APP just to get the feature won't probably not because the one that I have does the stuff that I need. Well that sucks if you're the developer of that APP because you've come out with a new version you're trying to get people to use it because it's better and you put a lot of time and money into it. Maybe it's even your fulltime job and there's a lot of people like Mir like the one I have is fine. Yeah so what are they? Discontinued the old one. Well that's something we've talked about where I'm sure there must be a name for this. I'm going to call it the IPAD. Which is that a lot of people by I feel like. I'm just guessing but I think this I found something like this to be true. A lot of people thought I pads when it came out in two thousand ten people bottom five six years ago by two thousand fifteen people were like. Ooh There's a cool. There's little mini one. Wow that's great for my kid. Put that in a rugged case and we're good to go before the IPAD pro. What was the one What was the one that you gifted me the pro but an IPAD RETINA? No what was it called. Oh Yeah but the one. That preceded the IPADS. Yes yes and you kindly gave me as a when I recall that And both by that time it was really maturing now when I had pro came out. I think it's a bummer. This people are so used to thinking of this as a thing. Your kid watches movies on Because I've had pro. Wow I'm telling you man knew. We could never seen fair coming the fact that there is a garage band. That's so good on IPAD. It's nuts but why do I say the IPAD problem because a lot of the IPAD? The people have are good enough and they are fine for doing lots of pretty minor stuff later. I need more power for what those people need. So they don't need to run out and if it falls and shatters and I don't think people most people was certainly not gonNa have apple care plus most of them and that would be expired. Anyway unless they again may subscribe to the New Apple. Care that you can subscribe to like insurance. But are they going to go into the apple store and buy a new IPAD? I mean that could be serious sticker shock from US people so I don't know I guess all I'm trying to say is I speculate. I would speculate that because the ipads were pretty great by two thousand fifteen sixteen. I don't think people are burning to chase those like premium phone users. But I don't know I don't know and so then introduced the concept of A subscription that you pay for And that's even tougher. I pay for the subscription to us Some of the adobe products that we use to light room. Yeah so there's light room and you do the same thing with photoshop illustrator and we use the heck out of those And so still all really good apps. They're still really good apps and they're but they're expensive. You know it. It costs a lot of money to use it and again. How often am I using photoshop? Personally not that much. But it's the only way to get like there are people like a French on Syracuse. Who were like well? It doesn't matter how often I use this. This APP is so inside my brain. It's my bones inside fibers by this. This is the APP for doing this kind of thing and regardless of how often or not I use it. This is the one it has to be. I know that's weird but I do get that. Yeah that's how it is like a photoshop. So perfect example of that if you use photoshop and that's your jam like you're just GonNa to have to pay for him so get so confusing if you do wanna venture into these waters. You'RE GONNA have to sort out a lot of things about you know what kinds of sharing on family stuff is going to work. You know look at what Which means you get Just went through Fantastic how the big up they had because of the somewhat complex way they handled pricing up features and upgrades and I think they really did the best they could but they were in a tough spot anytime. You've got people. Were you. Cut The IPAD problem where your APP is so good all you have to do update support for it on new version. Right right right. I think there are probably apps that are kind of like that but fantastic. I wanted to like really. It's more than a new coat of paint. They did a whole bunch of stuff a fantastic but either way one way or another. There's no way for that person to make a living for themselves right if they only charge you two ninety nine once and so you know. I am really. I really understand that. This sounds fancy. But there's certain kinds of folks that I like giving money to and one of them as developers like I feel good about people who make apps or services getting paid especially like an independent people who are working on building. A thing like not to go you know. Blow smoke up Greg Skirt but tortoise man or for that matter you know. I'm this all these indie shops. There's panic on a big fan of Was called MINI TRICKS. A company that does Which and the Switcher You know there's just there's so many little John Syracuse with his cool new APP that only runs on Catalina gusts at flying meet. I'M GONNA leave people out here. I want to thank the academy. I WanNa thank God. I want to thank cable. Sasser sweet smile. It just warms up the room today. Thank God already okay. They're paying me off or you know more like they're like okay so on the IPAD. You should see what my kid is doing on. The I pat it is be appropriate. But she's twelve and she's using the the poop out of layers she just off layers and students stuff now with blends. She grabs the Apple Pencil and her IPAD and like he's doing the most amazing stuff so absolute procreate make that possible acts apps like Pixel Mater. You know any of those wonderful dependent camera apps also exciting but like your phone's going to suck unless there's APPs for that are yup and on some level. A rising tide raises all boats. There is not going to be another one of the Scott born. You have to be. This APP cost ten thousand dollars so you can show a fancy. There's going to be like tricks like that. Mustaches beer drinking beer after. Looks like you're drinking a beer you turn your I iphone and accelerometer. Yeah this isn't hilarious. Yeah he's got funny like the mustache. Lancer the best average mustache fart. Noises fart noises like that. Yeah that thousand dollars not somebody. If there's not somebody out there or some `continuing fresh supply of people who are pushing forward with making the kind of stuff that get people excited about this platform and buying its hardware. If we don't continue to bring people in based on buying the hardware based in part on what's available in the software that should be such marquee feature. That shouldn't be like an afterthought and you know I'm focused one password. Where do I begin? This is there's just so many. There's so many apps that I'm really happy to pay for and I don't know how many people are still like that understandably can do what can you do. Who'd listen do you think that the next step will be Pay Per use like a quarter in the. Yeah you don't have to. Yeah like you don't have to subscribe to use an application. You know because maybe only use it a few times a day or year month or whatever so maybe you just pay every time that you want to use it you pay a dollar and you get for that day and then the next day as a coach telling almost yeah I am. Excuse me I'm neither an economist businessman. So there's a ton of things I just don't understand but I am from Florida so I'm always willing to speculate right so like one thing that happens that I think I get even though I don't know if it's the smartest thing so if you go and you have an APP and yeah it used to be back in the day million years ago you'd have a you'd have a free version of pave so you'd have like Think boy pro and dingus boy. Light handed down or maybe to share where he do. Whatever but something has happened? You know especially in the last few years. I feel like first of all everything on the APP. Store needs to be free to get generally and then you're supposed to do in-app purchases. That's the idea or you know you could download a demo from their website and see if you like it for ten days or whatever but you're someone how can I put this. You're limited in terms of limitations. If that makes any sense I mean one thing. You can do the the most obvious thing to do. That seems the most sensible is that we have this APP. Okay and their stuff that it does and it does really well and a lot of that stuff that other apps do in different ways but we have these two or three features that nobody else has and at least in this way. And let's be honest. This is the thing that really differentiates our product. You know so for me with fair I. There's so much right now. I'm not against the site happily paid for. But if you don't pay for the version of Right. You're not going to be editing podcasts. On their you know what I'm saying. Yeah so I I absolutely. I think understand why they do that. They're saying we made this thing and are unique. Value proposition is wrapped up in this APP and these features. And so you're not to pay for that but if you can't use the thing that makes us the greatest APP ever for this. How different is that from? Putting all your podcasts articles behind a paywall well how will ever learn to love? You New Yorker. If you've locked up all your articles we don't may also I do pay for that right? Does it make sense? Yes China.

"Home plus for Yeah Hopeless. Four four and. I think that'll do what time is it. Yeah that'll do it for me Combat me well the one question I had for you as you know. I'm a big envy San and then there's the new envy Ultra that's coming out or is in Beta now that we can't talk about much but I was curious if if what you used to access your envy alt- stuff when you're on Ios when you're on the go it's a trap. I still sorry Alex Cox. I still use editorial 'cause I I've finally traced. I think I finally really traced where the resistance is for me to just walk away from editorial and go straight to dress for everything because drafts has everything. It's was so great it's I mean and even last week partly according to his twitter at least partly motivated by me he very kindly added the ability to tick off items unless took off items from a task paperless. That's cool hand the screen. Yeah he's got so many things if you go back and listen to last week's episode or for less episode. I don't remember when with I. Greg from Exile Tortoise. He talked lot. We had him on talk about dress. But I think I figured it out. And it's this editorial gives you the access to your folder. That you can have in dropbox can be an. I cloud to my knowledge okay. So here's what comes down what it comes down to is. I used to ask for stuff. I need to be able to pull up tasks paper in the task paper APP on my Mac that is the that is the gating factor in this. So what does that mean Means if I WANNA you keep using editorial on IOS which still has features that. I like even though it's essentially dead for now I can get to my task. Paper there via dropbox because to my knowledge editorial does not do cloud now over here. We've got the SH- wonderful forward-looking heavily updated super powerful drafts dont`a which works on all the platforms and it syncs incredibly efficiently through I cloud But but to my knowledge it does not expose the individual files on a Mac to my knowledge. Okay so I can't use it in tasks paper on the Mac because it's all cloud no drugs so what I do right now. I'm just but but you know what's great about this. Dan Is that like you know it's like I say with going. And people say three four five six calendar apps on like all of them every day like some of them. I'll just click because I liked the way. It handles months more fantastic. I love the way it handles entering events but you know I never have to worry about whether it sinked that has come so far context thinking used to be the pain of my exists bad. Yeah I had all these APPs I mean I told you before about for example how I was obsessed with getting all of my bookmarks exactly the same on all platforms. That was a great use of my time I mean this. This is another one. I'm always looking for the way to like sort of efficient way to handle things. I I just love the fact. I'll never forget the night. The simple note for whatever reason caused me lose twenty minutes of writing and I. I almost like walking into traffic. Had this terrible dry spell in really struggling with writing this book and back in the day and had this I was I really i. I look fire my pants. It was really rolling and then something happened. Beep boop and just simply twenty minutes of riding gone and I still feel even if it wasn't as good as I remember it having been that that twenty minutes staying in twenty minutes thing 'cause I think I can use I writer can any of this. I think like you can but the thing is the truth is I never thought I'd say this. Damn Benjamin I would so much rather be using. I caught for everything right now as we. I think we've officially crossed the point. Where the value of dropbox versus the weirdness of them is something that makes everybody look at Apple. An apple is getting there with baby steps to be able to do all kinds of stuff. But you know what I will say like the sinking. Hope you agree has come so far. Oh Yeah it's it's seamless and perfect and I had been using one writer. Do Remember that guy sure. Yeah great at the problem with one writer. Though at least as far as I can find Is That I. I don't seem to be able to sink it too. I cloud and I'm sure I'm doing something wrong if somebody can. Please tell me but the way that I've done this in the past is you you go to the little gear and that brings up your settings you go to services and then listed under services on my APP is Dropbox Web. Dev evernote cloud happened. Drop Ler. None of those are cloud and I'm not raising drop. The only thing that I use dropbox for now is the one missing feature from cloud which is like sharing with other people so I have like some stuff in dropbox that other people that I collaborate with especially like designers like this is the place where we'll put images and other files that we need to share and get all get to easily and you and I share our audio files with dropbox. Everything else is now on my cloud and I don't I don't have. I'm not a files kind of a guy. I don't have a lot of files so it's minimal but like I really would like my notation data stuff You know the the envy. Alz stuff to to be there so that I can get to it wherever I am and it's not so much that I necessarily need to although I do sometimes create notes and things like that on my phone. It's more I just WANNA be able to look at them sometimes or like you know. That's that's where like I do show notes and things. They're all in the all right now. I have an enviable file open where I'm tightening in typing show titles or other notes as I go along and wouldn't it be nice to be able to just glance at my phone and see those wall editing full screen on my Mac? You know those kinds of things are really handy or being able to go out and be somewhere and look up a note that I made forget just creating them Which is also nice. But one writer doesn't seem to do that anymore. So if there's something else that does with cloud I would be very curious to hear about without. It doesn't isn't part of it kind. I'm talking about here but isn't so like you must. I'm guessing you have to hugh to certain kinds of guidelines if you want to do the sort of cloud sync that lets you have individual folders photos documents right right. There must be something that prevents that or I what I had heard back in the day. I don't know if this is true but I heard that dropbox was basically like a shark a smart shark. Which is the worst kind of shark? But on the one hand they figured out as we've talked about and been somewhat agape How they managed to do this. They somehow manage to sneak their stuff into your Mac. Not In a bad way like you sign up for it and it's great and you basically create a folder called dropbox that sits in Your Home Directory and then sinks everywhere and it's like I don't know how they got away with that and I don't know how it worked but they pulled that off and the other thing they did that's really smart was there. What are we going to call it? Sdk Api all those things supposedly. They have they have from the kneeling. The beginning anyway made it very easy to integrate dropbox into what you do including all the way down to like just giving you this supposedly. I don't know you tell me but you can get busy with this whole kit. That will make it so easy and very exposed exactly what the does and the limits etc but in a way that certain other companies. Maybe don't document quite as well. These Have you ever worked with? That is true is easy SDK. I really don't know but I imagine that that the reason why dropbox was so popular is because they made it so easy to integrate all that stuff with like you were saying you know and so let's hand being the one first of all you know. This is another one of those companies. That's essentially a commodity Steve. Jobs I think famously said something like this is a feature not accompany yourself to consider acquiring it soon blockbuster and could have bought net flicks right. I mean they basically the understanding that I have of that story is that apple was interested in acquiring dropbox because they wanted to use it as a foundation for a lot of the stuff they were doing with cloud. And of course this is never were. They're they're outstanding me dot com service. Yes you could send greeting cards and lose files location. That's right and so it's upload your files to are welcome to I work. Would you like to upload your document you remember that? That was their solution then. Another one of those sweet solutions was that the I work was going to have a website where you can upload a file and then go get it later. It was like something from a a weekend. Slagging anybody here I am making fun of apple it operated about how you'd expect like a weekend night class in web development to work like okay. We're GONNA take this dream weaver and we're GONNA take this you know. This was the Microsoft database up access access. So you don't dream weaver and access. He's doing really well together. It's kind of like that will now. If you want to add a new road to your table your click here and dragged yes. I'M GONNA run my business on a lot of sense. Yeah but anyway. So what is the core of your question in terms of like where you'd like to end up? If I'm hearing you correctly you WANNA be. I'd like I'd like envy. Basically I just Wanna be able to read. I think I'm we're we're dangerously close to winning the same thing which is just just for I. Clad has toured cloud. That's my only requirement has to sync with cloud and it has to go right back to the beginning podcast in some ways. It has to honor my idea of my how I want to use this like you know I it a try to make whenever I talk about drafts that I hope comes through. I think it comes through sometimes. Is the way that using drafts. Ironically enough para dramatically changes. How you think about your words that you make your content right and why am I saying that while using these weird terms because the beauty of drafts is you turn up in the APP? You show up. You Start Typing. You don't need to know where that is going to end up when you first arrive in-draughts and you have a blank little white square that you're typing into You don't need to know where that's going to go now. That's how you used to think listener. You used to think. Oh I need to send a message to so and so you go to the message APP type it because he go to the APP we send it for when you writer got to send an email open up mail dot up. Why because you always go to the APP that you're GonNa send it from right it And he says oh I know I need to make a note and Omni Focus and so what are you gonNA army focused? Because that's the place we write down the stuff that you're going to do now..

And you've seen her in many things and she plays a doctor who has asked Burgers as Burgers as trying to avoid saying ask burgers because I think that's incorrect anyways so temple grandin check it out. And that's how we ended up going there because she was talking about how she needs to be hugged super super super hard when she has a freakout l. y. c. same concepts of gravity blanket. I think he'd like a weighted blanket. Yes Oh sprint through a couple more of these real quick okay. All things I want to recommend I want to recommend something in show notes that has been so useful to me I I've heard Jason Snell and Federica Vitucci and other people talking for the longest time about editing podcasts. With a fair right now on an IPAD and I've opened up played within the interface was not superintendent to me. Well Jason has done a really good video on his six colors site. We talks in particular about yes using an ipad but also yes using an apple pencil and he walks you through the stuff that I love the really dumb power user stuff that I loved walks you through like you could see his settings and replicate those but while there's some things that are so much easier to draw. Obviously these things are thousand times harder to do but it wants you gotta set up and you understand the basic idea. It's pretty great. It's got built in stripped. Silence got like noise gate. It's got compression. It's got a million things anyway Check it out since shirts Jason Snell talking about editing podcasts. With an Apple Pencil in fair right. I mean I loved it. There is another option for people. Now that it's not just use a computer it's it. We should be able to do that any you know you have an ipad record on the IPAD you can because you can plug a USB Mike into an ipad ball will you can't edit they're gonNA get to Anchor Museum Arts with files which is Record on zoom. Yeah Yep Yeah I am now. I'm just at southern talked about On probably do by Friday. But I'm sort of on the little bit on the horns of a dilemma. Trying to figure out what to do and win with my computer life because you know it's more and finally it's getting like it used to be with the old cheese grater. Were starting to get to the point where I really need to go to Catalina on here. There's more and more APPs that are the I switched finally. Well here's my problem though. And this gets you to the nut of why. I'm watching videos about ferry And playing with garage band the new garage van. An as you kind of have to send me the logic file for one of our shows so it can rain little bit of logic. So I didn't get an option for what to do next because I could stay with Havi and just not be able to run. Johnson accuses new APP and so many APPs increasingly or won't run on anything Catalina but if I if I do update then I can't use the old version garage band and I definitely need to be up to speed on podcast editing. Before that goes away do you follow. Yes because we'll garage me. Thirty two bit right. Yes on Catalina. Yeah anyway and that's why dovetails nicely with the move with my big project is that you know just getting to do audio. Things finally got new strings and a good set up a Acoustic end my electric. Everything's coming up mill house other fast. Just just as a teaser here. sneaky sneaky. Do you have a thing you want to talk about? After I finish this. Yeah I do I have a question for you about the Alton. Yeah Oh yeah perfect okay so you know people are. GonNa Scoff at this. I don't care I learned about I wanna say from Max Stories but I'm not sure where I saw it. Sorry if I saw it from one of you and it's almost none of you for almost none of you for one and a half possibly two reasons because it's always wanted to have two things with me. It's called home plus four. That's very confusing home. Plus space numeral four The APP is called Hump. Plus okay a so. There's two reasons almost none of you are GonNa want this APP number one. It's wild the improved so improved version of the home APP for Ios for for ruining your house video home automation stuff. This thing is wild. It's so freaking good and so tricked out reason number one. You don't need it. You probably aren't doing home kit stuff reason number two. You're super not going to get it is I think it's fifteen dollars right. Can I get those things out of the way and talk about how amazing you've said the bad now tell us the good Don't email me literally known. Email me The home APP and the home sir. Home Kit Service thing stack you know? It lacks a lot of things. I mean anytime. Apple does anything with any of their neglected projects. You know everybody everybody gets gets a wet basement freaking out about how great they are that they've finally done a thing that everybody else has been doing forever. Whatever part of the beauty of the smart home ecosystem is how many things can work together? And when they don't work together it's frustrating and spotify all over again in this case a lot of limitations and Over simplification of home has been greatly improved upon. If you'RE GONNA look at that product page For it here's one so so domino obvious so many more options for icons that sounds dumb. But when you've got a lot of stuff in your house and you're scrolling right you won't be able to easily get around. Also you know how nutty it is that you have to fly. I go to an area called rooms and then swipe left to right to go to different areas With home plus four everything on one page. And it's just collapsible with little. Arrow makes it so easy. That sounds dumb but now now for every one of these devices that you have you can get him. You get better in my opinion better tiles like if you've got stuff like sensors that are telling you can no heat air quality etc. It can show all that on the one badge And when you do the long click to click into change settings for one of your devices. There's a crazy amount of features exposed that are not exposed in the home APP and says some of it is actionable and some of it is just super interesting but you could tell a lot of them are like these variables the pop up and stuff but if you use home kit and you. WanNa make a good. Oh Dan she just stopped like changing the order of these changes in some of the groupings of these beautiful APP. So if you use homecare things and you're frustrated as I am with some of the limitations of the home APP on Ios try home plus four people.

"And so. Why am I telling you this? I don't know I'm tired but you know that. How whether and how we commit things to any kind of media ends up becoming kind of a big deal in all of our lives if you look at stuff like wow wish. I'd taken more pictures of grandma before she got sick. Or you know I wish I I wish I had more videos of my kid or whatever it is but then for yourself. I don't know I think it's still kind of special. I was listening to an old as as I do every day. I listen to a lot of my brother. My brother and me and I was listening to an old wine and I think they've said several times that at least Justin was using the microphone. Rockstar is at the game. Yes so how cool is it like could you take the ROCKSTAR DRUMS? And go out and be a drummer. That it'd be tough unless you have a very specific kind of audience. Yes but you can take the microphone from rock band. Take the microphone and you can start recording a podcast that becomes your career. I think that's so cool. And that's S- whoever it is the big big podcast that wants us in their pocket this. There's they're not gonNA ruin this for a while at least for us. You will enjoy it no matter what but I mean we've got. We've got time but you know they consensus. I think is that we don't want those big powerful entities that are driven by commercial gain and profit to come in and and you know like the big the big thing that happened with The simmons the the ringer they got acquired by spotify. You know people are like well good for him but at the same time there's other people were like well. I don't like is that. Is that really good for podcasting? Do we really want some company to start buying up all of the good content shops and it owns them now and now it controls the content. I mean it's a it's a great move for spotify because up until now. What does spotify been doing? They've been paying money to get content from artists. Now we're giving it to known we're giving it to them here. Take my content. Please put it on your platform Sir. And they're just sitting back watching the casserole in and is is that the gatekeeper that we want for podcasting. Do we need one right? I have really Such this too long because it's probably kind of boring but I have really mixed feelings about this. For example I come. I said before until I sound like a loser. The openness independence the the thing that makes podcast unique is that they can and should be free as in several things. And that's the thing like you and I both have patriotic. They have content that shift to unlock by paying. I'm not blameless. We take ads for for most of the shows that I'm on. I mean there's all kinds of ways in which we are part of the big system and I if you're looking for the most vegan of podcasters. He's never taken a bite of cow. It's not me but my concern with the stuff like the spotify is that they're going to want to say flood zone and I. It's not cool to think about a future where people who have gotten into podcasting through an APP right and by the time it becomes a lobster trap or probably better still portcullis. I don't know by the time by the time you get where you KINDA WANNA be. You can start to increasingly. Have fewer things that are free as in anything and you know and that's kind of so far. That has failed miserably. I'm sorry to say some cases like Amazon's attempted podcast was so weird we have was and I really weren't listen to Alexis Co and Elliott Ceylan. Had this really good show about the president's and I don't know just the whole thing was so strange and you know you. You have this tradeoff where you you give away so much in terms of people having time to learn to love your show for free You know I mean ricky surveys. Wasn't he like one of the first people to like start selling episodes of his show. I don't know if he was one of the first but I remember when he did that. And I think it was the episodes. I don't know if he invented this but his team but Yeah it was like there'll be like maybe ten episodes available at a given time and the rest were for pay. Yeah I remember. Radio lab did that to get the latest they asked. Yes this American life th. I think it was like you know the latest ten episodes. You get those but then if you want to go to the back catalogue you have to subscribe or pay or whatever and I don't have a problem they're doing There's SOMO certainly doing the a you for all those episodes the What's IT called The INS audio insertion or whatever it's called dynamic auto insertion is usually dia. Yeah so but how do you learn to love something like I? I I when I get into a podcast. I get so excited and I just go. Voraciously burned through. All of those right. I don't know it's weird. I mean I don't. I have no problem with some podcasts. Being free and others being for pay I don't care I don't like it if if someone wants just the same thing like with the newsletter like people think well newsletter should be free but some of the very best newsletters out. There costs money. Yeah that's the thing and that's fine I. I have a number of friends now who there fulltime living there fulltime job is doing a newsletter and I L- I mean that's their writers. They come out with it. Some do it every day. Some do a couple few times a week and you know things like that like I absolutely love that I love. I if if I had it my way I wouldn't do any sponsors on any podcast ever and I would have them all be listener supported because when you have a listener supported show your own first of all. You're highly accountable to your listeners. Which I like but at the same time. You're only accountable to your listeners. You know and it's it's not like we're on here bashing our sponsors are a sponsor competitors but there is that there is that notion that if your if your listeners are supporting you then you have that true creative freedom and the freedom of voice and thought to say or think or share whatever you want and if that bothers a listener if they don't like it then they can go away and if listeners do like it then they can they can pay for that and you have this really really interesting. So if it's if it's free they can also tell their friends they can. Yeah well you know you can tell Marco I feel like Marco is from Marco is. I don't know I think he's such an interesting guy. He really practices what he preaches. As far as I know anyway. Which is you know his. He realizes that podcasts. Were able to get good and able to get big because they were free and open but they were hard to share. So he's done stuff like add features that makes it easier to share a portion of audio or even just a time stamp. It was such a big deal to have a podcast APP that made it easy to share a time stamp with somebody and so. I think that it's I mean. I don't WanNa be too stark about it but is your APP and service designed to move us closer to closing a door or does your APP and service moves closer to things being open not being difficult to get into something that a lot of people love is a question given us you know. It's so hard to share. It's hard to discover podcasts. And it's hard to share podcast And that's kind of the the two big challenges that remain You know discovery and share ability and you know the people have tried so so many different solutions for this. I mean they're one of the things that I've seen that actually worked worked on me anyway. are what they call audio grams. Which are like In headliner App makes makes these for you but basically you You you use one of these services and YOU UPLOAD YOUR MP three file to the service you select the clip that you want so you say okay. I want from minute twenty one. Oh five two minute twenty to thirteen and that's your clip. And then it lets you. Upload an image radio use the cover art and it puts like a little wave form over it whereas people are talking and some of them will even the the tax and it's created this little and the benefit of the point of that. Especially if it you pick like a thirty second clip is that it's very easy to share that on platforms like instagram or facebook or twitter. And it's it's a little I think for the for regular people it. It's better than doing something like sharing like Overcast makes it easy to to get that share page where it starts playing a clip? You know? That's that's built into a lot of hosts that feature as well but if you're using the overcast APP like you can do it right from the APP but having something like headline or one of those audio grams is even better because it. It's it's very difficult to make a podcast visual other than just showing the image by showing away form on it. There's some visual action by having the text kind of transcribed going across. It makes it look like cool that something's happening here. And people are more likely to click on it and listen to it. But that does not always translate directly into someone like downloading Ramazzotti subscribing to your show. It's so hard to get to get that to happen like I'm going to recommend the TV show on HBO. The outsider to you. I'm really really enjoying this. Show here here I am. That's good guy talking to another guy saying this is a show that I like. You should listen. And then maybe you'll go and do that the next time. You're looking for or watch rather here's something you want to watch the next time. You got some time to do it. That's how podcasts are being shared but the difference is that's kind of the only way that people are really discovering is like a friend says to another friend or they're going in looking. Maybe at the PODCAST apple podcasts. Ratings on the shows maybe you know it's so hard to get a new show even for people like me who've been doing this now fulltime since two thousand eight You would think it was easy. Danka just launch a show. Of course people do it but no it. It's really not like that at all. I have the same challenge of launching a show as somebody who's never done a show before because there's so much content out there there's so many shows to compete with and say well. I'm doing a show of teaching people. Podcasting I'm not competing with very many other shows. Actually you are. You're competing with the you. Know the civilizations podcasts. I talked about last week and back to work and those good for history though. This are so long but like I'm competing with because there's a limited amount of time that people have to listen to stuff so you are. You're competing with every other podcast out there. Not just the ones that are in the same topic groups as you have. So it's it's tough. Yeah there's there's only so many hours in a day but go on and do it. It's fun try going to tell you that I wrote down here I'm going to do a coupon for fireside right now. Go to fireside famine. You sign up and the Promo Code is going..

"The APP. The controls this smart home dangerous and you see like all these terrible terrible apps all these terrible terrible gain games. It's like this weird mall that I never walk into even though it is right outside my bathroom It's it's it's nuts and I I feel like it's like that with podcast to is so much. Just scammy weird dumb stuff. Yeah that almost physical content farm or their to promote our posts about it I I'm glad you're doing that again. I think it will benefit people and I think it's really helpful to give to be able to share with people some kind of focus about this point for me but it means a lot to me help people learn what's pay attention to you what not to pay attention to what to worry about what not to worry about. Because when you're looking at a new sort of advocation from the outside it's it can't be so different from when you get into it and I've actually thinking about kind of thinking about these orthogonal themes having to do with this making music project when reason. I'm tired of late last night writing stuff about this. Oh analyst no I was just thinking about the history my and I had in this kind of a flash of like realizing these different eras of me committing something to media and like each one of those special right like being super super little kid and having we had this tape recorder with and I remember It usually I usually go to press down record and play right. It's usually a red button. This Little Red Red Button on the thing you press at the same time as play and it records it and not this one though it was so early seventies that it was a tan button. Oh she click with the white Tannin white together. We learned her Eden Right. But I would record with that I would listen. I took my navin the afternoons. My mom tells me anyway because I was too young to really super member although I kind of feel like I remember I would always listen to the same sesame street Cassette but then later on I would interview interview my dad like better before he died and I still have a tape of me interviewing my dad and asked him about what he was like as a kid on or I would hold that at the thing that made me think of this. I started to write this and then I a youtube video came up about the monkeys and I suddenly remembered I would be ready to record like right next to the TV understand. This is the awesome photo. This thing be good. Show art but Isn't insane I would wait and so I'd be able to get like daydream believer recorded August five cent. Tv Speaker. That for so many things. I would record TV theme songs. Get so I can listen to them. But at that time those tapes were so precious. And like you would have to go over and over. My Mom's like in a binder fresh you know maxell every time. I want to do so anyway that I would do some recording off the radio when I was in high school. I couldn't afford a lot of records and so on on the community radio station in Tampa called W. F. and that's can. I discovered them in coincidence with my getting more into like you know y y they then called college. Rock tape radio. Finally I used to. I used to simulate bouncing by using two different boom boxes. Hooked up to the headphone cable. Okay so so basically you know how you bounce on a four track. He bounced from. If you choose from three to one you can bounce from you know what I'm talking about right as I do. Or from four to four. I don't three tracks through tax. One Open three two one two one. Cetera. And he can do. These mega bounces like these. Brian Wilson Style bounces. But yeah and the thing is it. The roller was a little bit slow so it sped up a little bit right every time. A record it so I had a a knockoff. Tom Shoals Rochman totally knocked off. Used knockoff Rochman. Which is like this amazing. Little thing where you plug in your Qatar and you put your headphone cable and it sounds. You sound a little bit like here in Boston. It's really cool so I would never. Yeah.

"Is about one of the best New Year's resolutions. You can make it's to get outside for twenty minutes a day. Unlike plenty of other resolutions this will probably put you in a better mood and if you live somewhere. Cold dark and gloomy it can make winter. Seem more doable. I I came across this idea for this resolution via the humans outside outside project. This is run by woman named Amy Boo shots who lives in Alaska with her family. Now Alaska might not seem like the best place to get outside for twenty twenty minutes a day especially in say January but amy has committed to doing it and to enjoy the natural world has to offer. Sometimes the natural world has to offer is absolutely spectacular and sometimes being outside for twenty minutes a day means a quick walk outside the airport for a long day of flying flying but either way fresh air is unknown mood booster even cold sleet conditions can make you feel more energized. By the time you go back inside so I decided to adopt. This is one of my quarterly resolutions during a recent winter. And I have to say I am a big Fan in Pennsylvania where I live isn't Alaska but still winter can be cold icy and generally not that pleasant. There's always a tendency to hibernate especially when the sun sets at four thirty PM round the solstice but committing to get outside for twenty minutes. A day changed my my relationship with winter because I knew I would be outside. I decided to get better outdoor gear. I finally bought waterproof boots so I could wait. Wait around outside in the slush and shockingly. I became much more willing to do so. I bought a long coat that kept the chill off my legs. I also made a choice to buy good winter running gear so I could run outside instead of on the treadmill as long as conditions. Were safe to do so. I ve vastly prefer the outside scenery too boring treadmill so this improved my mood right there since it's generally better to get outside during daylight hours Setting this intention forced me to look at my schedule each day and figure out when I take a break in summer you could go outside after work but if it's only light from seven thirty. Am to four thirty PM. That might not be the case. But it's the rare workday that wouldn't be improved by quick jaunt outside. I made sure or to put on my boots and do this occasionally and even on challenging days the commitment to get outside forced me to pay attention to the winter landscape type and it's subtle beauties. One day I had to get my minutes in by walking around the airport parking garage at the Philadelphia airport but the sky was actually quite quite beautiful as the winter sun was setting over. I ninety five now yes I might have been happier to see a tropical sunset on a beach but hey winter wti is beauty all the same. Now if you live somewhere tropical you probably don't need to set a resolution to get outside for twenty minutes a day but for the rest of us. I'd encourage the idea. That's why I'm setting this as a quarterly goal again this year. Well possibly the day. I'm in the hospital delivering my baby. I might not make it outside for twenty minutes but the other days sure why not getting outside can help us experience winter in a whole new way. In the meantime this is Laura Breath.

"It clocks in at about three and a half hours long. I know that it's been a point of contention with some people to be honest with you. Though one thing I did have a problem with I never have a problem with his movie link. Listen Martin Scorsese's one of the best storytellers is on the planet. If he feels it takes three and a half hours to tell his story then it takes three and a half hours to tell the story. I have no issue with that and anybody that has an issue with you know movie length. If it's ridiculous you know we have fans now in the Star Wars universe that are telling us how story should be told now we have fans telling us. How long movie should be stop? It like really if movies time length is a problem for you. Don't see him like stay home and watch an episode of friends or Seinfeld in defense of the of the Irishman. I will say that like you know. I think marks cars as he knows when he needs an editor and obviously he felt that this was the amount of time it took to what to to have the movie unfold until the way he wanted to told no issue with that you know online. There's people that are breaking it up for you. They're telling you what minute mark to stop to start in four installments in three installments. Find if you need to watch a movie and break it up. You know. It's almost like when you were younger having your mother. Cut Your Food for you. When you're like two or three years old having your mother cut food for you in little tiny bite so you can eat it easier fine? If that's what you need to have happened to watch a movie. Then go for. But that's a to me. That's more line pathetic. The the first episode I had was a Beautiful Day neighborhood which I broke down the wonderful. Tom Hanks movie and this is my second installment and I have to wait a little bit. I wanted to see what the SAG awards kind of came out with and I also wanted to see what the Golden Globes came out with. It was pretty much like I thought. Deniro got snubbed in both venues. I don't know what that tells you. When the SAG awards are basically the screen actors guild and those awards are given by? I mean I guess indirectly all awards come from actors who vote but the sack awards are a big deal. If you're an actor I mean this is directly what you're pierce think. And he was snubbed by them you snow by the Golden Globes who knows with the Academy Awards are going to look like but quite truthfully when I take the three big names this movie right but Chino the Niro Enjo- PECI the best. Oh by far by far is Joe Patchy joepags amazing in this movie. He's absolutely amazing. He's not the you know the angry winey little guy who is violent. He's just an actor. Doing a phenomenal job. Very passive speaks with his actions. You know I loved Joe Patchy in this I really thought Al Pacino was almost cartoon like because he was Al Pacino being Alpa Chino being Jimmy Hoffa like what is going on here it was at times Al Pacino was very very tough to watch and going back to Deniro. He just mailed it in two thirds. The first I two thirds of the movie are just not good like the movies. Third Act is great. It's really is it's great but the setup to that last third of the movie is just so poor and the movie in one thousand nine hundred Hoffa a movie called Hoffa in one thousand. Nine hundred came out was directed by Dan Veto. Who's also in the movie? At least Jack Nicholson tries to put on an honest performance as Jimmy Hoffa. I'm watching Al Pacino. Become Jimmy Hoffa. It's it's almost comical like it's I don't know I don't know how to. I don't know that. I have the vernacular to describe it but it was very difficult to watch. It was just like I said it was almost like a Saturday night. Live skit and then they have in Apac. WHO's a phenomenal actor? WHO's an academy award winning actor and they give her like two lines in the entire your movie? She plays Frank Sheeran daughter. I mean are you. Why would you go to that length to key to cast someone that good to completely just mute her abilities? It's ridiculous I just. There's a lot that works against this movie for me again overall. It's a good movie. It saved by the last third. You know it's got some great performances but the you know the CGI was. I mentioned that Netflix spends over two hundred million to make this movie. I don't know where that money went because I'm GonNa tell you this. CGI on Robert Deniro. Face is very very difficult to look at. It's borderline awful. It's almost like high school. Play makeup kind of thing it was. It was Kinda cringe-worthy watching his face. I don't know why they just didn't bring bring in a younger version of Frank. Sharon you know maybe a Leo DiCaprio. Somebody younger I mean. Obviously it's a huge actor but somebody to represent the younger Frank Sheeran because to look at the CGI version of Robert De Niro was for me was it was a train wreck. It was driving by a car accident and I was so busy looking and yet his face I was not even paying attention to the dialogue which was not great to begin with but it was very difficult to watch and you know I. There's just so many again. There's so many issues working against this movie. You know how much of it is true. But that doesn't bother me so much as the storytelling how how Scorsese chose to use his actors the way the first two thirds of the movie unfolded and I wonder if this would have been so successful because this movie's divided a lot of people and I'm I'm in that camp. I definitely really do. I tweeted this earlier and I felt like this is a is a solid two good movie. You know it's it's canned tuna. You know it's. It's it's doable doable. It's a good average everyday lunch right. It's not lobster. It's not phenomenal. It's not any of that. Although I would say that Joe Pesha deserves an academy the award. No doubt I will say but it's to me was it's very difficult to hear people saying this is one of the greatest movies of the year. Nowadays it's not one of the top half movies of the year as far as quality-wise peanut butter getting snubbed all over the place. So many movies getting snubbed in. That's a show for another time but now he's just moving not one of the top movies of this year for me personally not the top half put. It's not even in the top half of Martin Scorsese's movies all the movies. and You tell me if you've seen the Irishman if the Irishman and is better than any of these it's not better than wolf of Wall Street and that's probably the most debatable one on the list. It's not better than shutter island. It's not better than the departed is not better than the aviator gator not better than gangs of New York. Not Better Than Casino not better than Cape Fear not better than Goodfellas. Not better than color of money with Paul Newman. Not better than raging bull will not better than taxi driver. This is just a very average movie eight one and I am very generous and I wonder if people had to go to the theaters in pay for this movie versus sitting on your couch or laying in bed and watching it if if the if the response would have been the same because when you pay to theater you're paying unless you're going to a matinee you know you're paying nine to what fifteen sixteen bucks a ticket you're probably buying popcorn. There's IT's another ten to fifteen. You probably buying soda or drink there. I mean it it adds up and what you're seeing that it'd be worth the price of admission right better. Be Worth everything you're putting into it and I wonder if the effects would have been different. Had it not been a Netflix. You know and I also really kind of didn't appreciate not not in my review but I didn't appreciate way. Scorsese teed off on marvel movies you know marvel movies do an awesome job at. CGI You know. Maybe he should've learned a little bit from them. Instead of being critical of marvel movies and Superhero movies. Because I have to be very honest. It's just this movie is almost and I feel like the recognition. It's almost like a lifetime. Achievement Award for the actors that were involved in the director. That's involved in it. It's almost like a a thank you to them for their years of work because the product itself does not warrant Nominations and clearly the SAG actors agree with me In the CY young awards clearly the Golden Globes agree with me the recognition that this movie is getting is just the typically have to nostalgia in the thank you to everybody involved. That's the way I see it because it's just not a great movie. It's just simply not you know. I mean look at the other movies out this year. Four versus Ferrari. Ari is so much better than this ad Astra so much better than this once upon a time in Hollywood so much better than this I mean on and on I just I don't I don't see it you know I don't say joker is better than this. There's Dr Sleep was better than this for me. When I released the top movies of the year? I'll break each down and I'll make my case without in trouble and I want to be honest. I'm not one of these people that examines the history of movies right because one of the shows I love on TV. It's the best show right now on on any streaming streaming network any major network in. That is the crown on Netflix. It's just fantastic. It is the polar opposite of this movie in every way. It's not too long for those. I think that it's supremely acted supremely well. Written it makes the most of its actors it makes the most out of its time. It is just so freaking good it is it is is the exact opposite of this movie. You have those people online that are these well. That's not historically accurate. Well that's not this. They don't let you enjoying episode. They're always talking well that that is not how it happened but I have to say the acting is so good even if it's sixty percent accurate seventy percent accurate it's still well worth the watch. There's no question and actor. Say watching the Irishman the acting which you know I have a problem with aside the movie itself being overrated aside. I I wonder how legitimate Frank Sheeran is because the story and I'm not GonNa ruin it for anybody but the storm when you watch it unfold. It just doesn't make sense His actions what he does some of the characters involved. It's just a mess it doesn't make any sense from a storytelling point of view. It doesn't make any sense. From a non fictional point of view you have to wonder about the legitimacy of Frank Sharon and again. I'm not trying to say oh. That's not historically. How no no one knows what happened to Jimmy Hoffa and this account by by many of the ones that I've read seems to be the most far-fetched of the mall? It's just it's borderline borderline ridiculous. The way it plays out you know. So what are my thoughts in this movie. Summit up to be very honest with you..
