"Folks, welcome back. It's here from taxi. I'm talking to Abby Johnson who has a new book out called fierce mercy. So you're talking about the story of your life being filmed in the movie unplanned. You go on the set and you watch this actress who's portraying you acting out some of the most horrible moments of your life. Yeah. And I'm like, oh my gosh. I'm like, this is so embarrassing. And it just sort of hits me, and I'm thinking, I am so embarrassed right now. I want to go back into my car. There were no car. I want to climb in the floorboard, or I just want to get in the car and drive back to Texas. I was so embarrassed. I then felt just this, I was like, I don't want the movie to come out. I don't want anybody to see this. I don't want anybody to see me having an abortion. I don't want anybody to see me. Talking women into having abortions. I mean, this was like the worst version of Abby Johnson. And it's going to be up on the big screen. Okay, but you already knew that it had a happy ending or redemptive ending. And even knowing that, it was painful for me. It was so hard. And in that moment, I was sitting there in this director's chair, right? So stereotype. Anyway, I'm sitting in this director's chair and I'm watching the TV and I have these headphones on and I'm just like crying because at that moment I'm just like, I just want to run. I just want to get out of here. And the one of the directors Carrie Solomon must have noticed that I was really having a moment and he just reached over and he put his hand on mine. And in that moment, I just really, it was like I just audibly heard the lord say, it's not about you. It's about me. You heard the lord speak to you audibly. Yeah. Not a lot of people have had that experience. You heard the lord speak to you in an audible voice. And he said it's not about you. It's about me. And I was like, okay. I was like, you're right, because in the end. The movie could have been about somebody named Alice burns for all I care, right? I didn't do or Alban sadar. Or Alvin saved exactly or Eric metaxas. It could have been about anybody. It wasn't about me. It wasn't about making Abby Johnson household name, right? This was about showing people that nobody is beyond the power of God's mercy. Nobody is beyond the power of Jesus Christ. And so that's why we wanted to do it, to help bring people to a place of conversion. So then fast forward, and the film is done, and the producers come down, and they show the film at my home. So Doug and I are sitting in the living room, the producers are there. They put it up on the TV, we're watching it, and I'm like, okay, you know, great. They get done, they leave, and I am like panicked. I'm trying not to show it, but I'm panicked. And I look at dog and I said, I don't want to do this. And I said, is it too late to say no? I don't want to do this. And say no to what? To say, I don't want to put the movie out. Like I want to cancel the whole thing. And I was totally serious. And dug my husband looks at me and he goes, yeah, yeah, I think it's a little late. I think it's moving forward. That's why God puts us in marriages. Yeah, and I was like strong man to tell you, are you crazy? And I was just like so panicked and oh my God. And right then, he looked at me, Doug looked at me and he goes, Abby. I never told Doug that story, right? About hearing from the lord? Write in. We never told your husband that you heard audibly from the lord. No. So right, right then we have communication issues. So right then. Oh, we know that. So right then, Doug looks at me and he goes, Abby. This is not about you. It's about the lord. Oh. And I was like, oh my gosh. And then you're right. But you didn't make the false conclusion that your husband. And I was like, my husband is the lord. My husband is God. To further problems. It was dog coming through the headphones. No, but is it funny? I mean, God, you know, the way God works sometimes like the level the levels and the cleverness and the idea that he would speak to audible voice. There are tons of people at this and are be convention that don't even believe that's possible. Oh, it's possible. No, no, no. You don't need to tell me. It's possible. But I'm just saying there are people who actually theologically, that's not possible. We know it's possible. We know what happened to you. But the idea that then God would confirm it in his mercy and tenderness that he would confirm that through the mouth of your husband..

Remembering Jesus's Message of Unconditional Love With Andrew Klavan

"The end of the book, you do get into this and you talk about things that Jesus said that are counterintuitive, putting it mildly. They're kind of like infuriating provocative counterintuitive. What? They're like bombs being thrown into our world. So like to reorder everything. And I love what you talk about when you talk about how he, you know, he tells us to love. The man who was set upon by robbers, right? At the end of the story, the good Samaritan and how it's not about because we treat someone right, that will lead them on the right path or whatever. It really is just about unconditional love, that that Jesus is modeling for us, this idea of loving the unlovable and giving the results to God. So it's just about doing what God does and trust in God with the results. Not about doing something to get something or to kind of to force somebody to change in a way. I mean, I just thought that was a kind of a major point. A huge point because I think one of the ways the church has lost its way is by trying to be relevant for trying to make the world a better place and if there's one thing Jesus never said is that the world was going to become a better place. He said the opposite of that. You know, he said, give your money to the poor, but the poor you're going to have with you. Follow me, but the world is going to hate you. And in the case of the good Samaritan, when you talk about that love that he is calling on you for it, as you say, it's not to make the world better. It's not to change the man who is mugged. He may remain a bad guy. He may be a bad guy and stay that way. So you can see what God sees because God is love and God loves us so much that when we love like God does, we see what he sees and the joy that is in Jesus is in us. And I think that that is what he's trying to give us. He's trying to give us a way of seeing. And so when you do these things, whenever I hear people talk, I never hear them say why, why are we supposed to do this? Why should I love my enemies? Why should I? Why should I walk in the why should I give money to the poor at all? It's certainly not so I can walk around thinking what a charitable guy I am. I know I'm not a nice guy. We all know that about ourselves. But when you do these things, when you let go of the things that matter to you and you start to pour love into people, you start to see them as God sees them and they become beautiful

Ryan Helfenbein: The Role of Standing for Freedom Center at Liberty

"So what do you see it as what do you see the role of the freedom center at liberty being? In the main thing, I mean, we are in many ways Eric. It's almost like the canary in the coal mine where you see what's happening in the culture and within institutions within evangelicalism. Oftentimes, people are looking for signs of courage, holding the line. What's a demarcation that you guys are really standing for truth? And we point to the freedom center as an example of that. We really, really are trying to press into the issues. One of the things that we have to recognize is that this generation Gen Z that is one of the hardest generations to reach for the gospel. We have to hold the lines for freedom in this culture when you think of life. When you think of liberty and truth and all these things that made America great, it goes back to spiritual principles. You go to Liberty University, for example, there in the welcome center. First Corinthians ten 31 is right there in the rotunda. God is spirit and where the spirit of the lord is there is freedom. There is liberty. We understand that this is a spiritual principle first. It is a pre political thing. And downstream for that from that is culture, downstream from the gospel as culture downstream from that is also politics. So the freedom center really does exist to sort of hold the line there in many ways. And I think both institutionally and also on the outside as well. In addition to you being one of our fellows, of course, we've got Mike Pompeo. We've got Mike Huckabee. We have Abby Johnson. We have several others as well that are a part of the

"What's the book the first book unplanned? Unplanned. Oh, that's the same as the title of the movie. Right. But the problem with the book versus the film is that Mike lindell is not in the book. Well, that's true. I need people to be reminded to go to my pillow dot com or my store to come and use the code Eric. For Abby. And if you watch the film on planned, we're gonna edit that out. Eric. And if you watch the film on plan, you see Mike lindell in a bulldozer and you're gonna be reminded holy guacamole. I need me some more pillows. Promo code Abby. Promo code Eric, I think I think since you're on my program, you need to shut up, right? I've had enough of you, all right? I will not tolerate this from a guest. No, it's kind of funny because so if you read the book, Mike lindell is not in it. I just want to warn people, okay? 'cause they can't get. You will be disappointed. If you're looking for Mike in the book, but the book is unplanned. So that was the first book. Yeah. Okay, so unplanned, the walls are talking, and the new one fierce mercy, is this just out? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, March 1st. That's yes. That means it's out. It's out. It's out. It's called fierce mercy. Abby, it's just a joy to talk to you. You're a great encouragement. And it's kind of funny because you have this sense of yourself like, oh, who am I? Did all these terrible things? And that, of course, is the point. Everyone should feel that way. Everyone should know that apart from God, you were not just, you know, nothing. We're a wreck. We're a mess. We're working for the dark side, but God and his mercy can take that and redeem it. And your story is beautiful. So on behalf of those of us who aren't you, let me thank you for allowing your story to be put out there. And for not yanking it. And because it has touched innumerable lives and will continue to do so. So thank you. And the book is fierce.

"Yeah, and that's amazing. And that's, you know, I talk about some of that in the book because for 8 years that I had worked at the clinic, I had completely emasculated my husband. I had not allowed him to be the leader of our home. I was terrible to my husband. I don't even know why I stayed with me. I was awful to him. I had a wife like that. Yeah. Just kidding. But when I left Planned Parenthood, you know, I became, I mean, we got invested in the word. We started going to church. Really recommitted our lives. And I was really convicted that I needed to allow Doug to become the leader of our home and that I needed to take a step back. And what's been really amazing in that is how the lord has really raised him up. And I feel like the lord speaks to me through dog all the time. You know, and he will confirm things that I'm like, is that really what you want me to do, God? You know? And then, and then God will confirm it through Doug, through his voice. And I think that's the way that marriage is supposed to be. We have things so out of whack in our society today. But that's the way it's supposed to be. You know, men are supposed to be the leaders of our home. And they're supposed to be, you know, the spiritual head of your household. If you allow, if you allow your husband to do that, and that's what your husband wants, ladies, trust me. That's what your husband wants. If you allow him to do that, the lord will bless your home in so many ways, and he will confirm things that you're questioning in your mind through the mouth of your husband. Well, people don't, you know, even when you say that, I know that there are people that they have a false idea of what that means. This is the problem. We're living in a culture where awash in lies, you know, whether it's the fact that the baby doesn't feel pain or that this is going to be a wonderful experience for you to get rid of this lump or whatever or the idea that a husband leading in a marriage means he's a tyrant or means you give him permission to all of this stuff is so dark and confusing. And so it's important for us to talk about this. Folks, I'm going to continue my conversation with Abby Johnson, the new book is fierce, mercy. Well, you wonder why I always dress in black. Why you never see bright colors on my back. And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone where there's a reason for the things that I have on folks I'm talking to Abby Johnson just a few minutes left. So Abby, you've written a number of books now. The one, this one is fierce mercy. It sounds extraordinary. But the book you wrote before this that tells all the stories of to talk about that for a moment, what's the title of that book? Yeah, it's called the walls are talking and really that one came about because we were at a healing retreat for my ministry and then there were none. And we get abortion clinic workers out of the abortion industry and then into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We've had 610 workers leave the abortion industry and come through our organization. Okay, hold on, hold on. Every time somebody says something like that, I just want to say pause. That is amazing. You've had 610 people who worked in the abortion industry, you've convinced them to leave that industry. Yeah, and 7 full-time doctors. Which is pretty amazing. Yeah. So, and then those workers have then gone back and shut down 25 of their former clinics. So yeah, pretty cool. This is so good. Yeah, and so we were, we provide these healing retreats in them for that. Healing retreats for them. And so we were at this healing retreat. And we're sitting around telling these stories, you know, about our times in the clinic. And one of them said, you know what, really cool if we just put all of these stories in a book and put it out because I don't think the public understands just how sinister the abortion industry is. I don't think they have a question that they don't understand. I don't think they understand. They have like an idea, or they may think maybe this is happening, but they don't really know what's happening. And so I said, you know, I think we can do that. And so that's what we did. So we put all of these stories together. So it's called the walls. In a book are talking. Put it out, and yeah, people can get it on Amazon. People can get the walls or talking, people can get fierce mercy, people can get, what's.

"You tell your story going back to what you were first married or well, I actually start the, I start the book out by talking about going on to the set of unplanned. Which was a really odd experience for me. So, you know, I go on to the set. Most people have not been on the sets of movies where their life stories are being portrayed. I just want to be clear. Most of us have not had that experience. I had not been on a movie set at all. You know? And so this is my first time ever being on a movie set much less movie about myself. And so I roll up in this rental car and they had turned this community center into a set to look like my former clinic. So they had even put up this big iron fence. And everything, right? And so that was a little odd. So I pull up and I'm like, wow, that really does look like my clinic. And my former clinic. And so I get out and there's hundreds of people there on set, a bunch of extras, and they're all like, oh my gosh, Abby Johnson's here. And they're sort of treating me like this celebrity. And which always makes me a little uncomfortable anyway. And then I go and I sit and I'm with the directors and I see Ashley there, the actress that plays me. I see her in the scene. I'm watching it on the little TVs or whatever. And then I'm seeing her and I'm like, oh my gosh, I'm watching this other woman act out the biggest regrets of my life. Oh.

Activist Abby Johnson Talks About Her New Book 'Fierce Mercy'

"Have sitting next to me here, Abby Johnson, who has a new book out called fierce, mercy, daring to live out God's compassion in bold and practical ways. So we've just heard the gist of your story. So what is this new book about fierce mercy? Yeah, so I wanted to write sort of a follow-up to unplanned. So I write on plan that comes out in 2011, then that was sort of my journey in and out of Planned Parenthood. Then I write another book called the walls are talking. And that was specific stories from inside the abortion industry. Then the film unplanned comes out in 2019. The film, the story you just told was told in a feature film called unplanned. That's right. With my friend Mike lindell driving a bulldozer. That was of course my favorite part of the film. Yeah. Mine too. But and then yesterday we're here at NRB. The woman who played you, I think I saw her yesterday. Yeah, she was here. At a gathering. But that film came out when. 29, March 2019. 2019, okay? Yeah. So keep going. And so I thought, you know, everything I've done has been really intensely focused on abortion, which I mean, that's my Wheelhouse, right? But there's so much more to my story than just I used to run a clinic, right? So, I mean, I've been married for 6, 16 years, I think, 16 years. And my husband and I have gone through a tremendous amount of healing, you know, my husband was always pro life when I worked at Planned Parenthood. So when I left Planned Parenthood, we had to go through a tremendous amount of healing, our marriage went a very tough place. So we had to work through a lot. We had a huge conversion just in our faith journey. We were kicked out of the church that we had been going to because it was pro choice. We were told we were not welcome there. You went to a church that specifically identified as pro choice. Yeah, the Episcopal Church. Oh, I've heard of the Episcopal Church. They've gone to hell in a handbasket. Yeah. In a good way, I would never insult the Episcopal Church on this program. Wow. Okay, so I mean the idea they kicked you out, they're supposed to be like really inclusive. Super tolerant. So I we were kicked out. We had this big faith transition and coming back to Christ. And then when I left Planned Parenthood, I just had one kid and actually I was a terrible mom while I worked at Planned Parenthood. I was never home, I worked 80 hours a week. I really didn't even want to be a mom. And so, you know, God really changed my heart on that too. I had to relearn how to be a mom. I had to relearn how to be a way to learn how to be a wife. And then now we have 8 children. So we went from one child to 8 children. We adopted one of our children. And so there was just a lot to our story and I wanted to talk about all of that. And

"Amazing. Well, I mean, I can't even like on radio, get into all of the comments that were made from our doctors from staff about the women that came in. Comments about their bodies, I mean, I can't even say the stuff that they would say. It would be wildly inappropriate, but I mean, the way the fact that the abortion industry is out here saying that they are championing women that they are some sort of advocate for women. If you heard the way that they talked about women, inside of these clinics, if you heard the way that these doctors degraded women, the way that they talked about their bodies, it's disgusting. And so it's nothing for them to then, you know, dehumanize and degrade the life of a child. I mean, that's nothing. And my doctor, I mean, my supervisor used to joke about the contents of the POC lab. All the babies that, you know, they would just be lined up on this cabinet in these trays. And she would joke about how it looked like barbecue. I mean, this is the, I don't think people understand the depths of depravity that is insight in just the demonic spirit that is associated with abortion. It's truly unbelievable. And you only know it to be true if you've actually been inside of these facilities and you've seen it. I mean, I've heard things like this hearing it from you. It just becomes the more dramatic because you were there and you were there with a good attitude. You're thinking like, I'm doing something that I think is good, but you couldn't help notice this anyway, that the way they talked about these clients, these sad, young women who have been persuaded. Now, one of the reasons that I love hearing from you, Abby is because I know that most young women in America, they never hear this stuff. We live in a world where your point of view, your point of view, where the reality of what you've experienced is basically censored, it's absolutely. So there's somebody out there now listening to this program on podcasts or on radio. And they're hearing this to the thinking, can this be true? I had no idea. Why have I never heard this? If I've never heard this, this can't really be true, can it? Yeah, yeah, it can be true, and it is true. And if you've heard it, now you're responsible for this information in whatever world you live in. We'll be.

'Fierce Mercy' Author Abby Johnson Shares Amazing Her Story

"With Abby Johnson. Some of you know Abby Johnson, I never know Abby, how to describe you. You're a fierce voice for the unborn, but if you don't mind because I have such an eclectic audience, there are people that aren't familiar with your story. So before we talk about your new book, which is called fierce mercy, if you don't mind, give a brief version of your story how you came to where you are. Sure. So I worked at Planned Parenthood for 8 years of my life. I was an abortion clinic director, started in college, moved my way up. And ended up leaving in October of 2009 after a few things that happened, just started to realize what was really going on inside of the industry and ultimately though left after witnessing a live ultrasound guided abortion procedure where I saw 13 week old baby fight and struggle for his life and I knew then that there was life in the womb. There was humanity in the womb and if those two things were true, then I knew I was on the wrong side of the debate. So I ended up leaving and sort of accidentally getting involved in the pro life movement because Planned Parenthood sued me and that ended up going public. And yeah, now I go around and fight for life. I'm in

The Ruling Class Thought They Could Shock Us Into Submission. They Were Wrong

"For those of you that said, don't give up hope in January. Thank you. For those of you in February, I showed up to school board meetings and you kept the fight going. Thank you. That mattered more than you could ever imagine, because now the ruling class they thought they could shock and us and blitzkrieg us into submission. They thought that we would be June and July and the country to be in such terrible shape. And we'd say, okay, you know what? Let's have a list Cheney around the Republican Party. That's what they thought we would do. They thought, you know what? Let's stop talking about abortion. Let's stop talking about transgender gender dysphoria. Let's stop talking about a God centered society. Let's just focus on corporate tax cuts and get along again. And instead, they're getting angry on CNN. And MSNBC. And yet they control everything. Have you noticed these the angriest winners you've ever seen in the history of politics? It's true. It says a lot about how they actually took power, by the

The Biden Regime Has Declared War on All of Us

"What is our administration? What's their top priority? The Department of Justice issues a memo saying that moms and dad showing up to school board meetings across the country are domestic terrorists, that they need use the Patriot Act that was designed to go after people that are associated with Al-Qaeda. If you show up to school board meetings and complain that your children are learning about pornographic curriculum or they're learning about abortion on demand or they're learning about racist critical race theory. Merrick Garland signs an order saying that I'm going to use department Homeland Security. We're going to use the FBI and we're going to use the DOJ to go and create a new commission to monitor to spy on infiltrate moms and dad showing up and complaining at local education area. Local educational institutions, voicing their opinion, turning point USA, the organization that I found in that we run was listed in that letter, saying that what we are doing as our school board watch list is contributing to the targeting of school board officials across the country. And, you know, that's kind of you know when you're doing a great job when the Department of Justice decides, you know what? Murders up 30% last year. No memo, by the way, from the attorney general on murders going up 30%. No memo on the fact that hundreds of thousands of people are coming into our country without any sort of testing any sort of background this coming straight into the interior of the country, but who are the real enemies? You. The real enemies are the patriotic Christians and the heartland of the country. And this regime has decided to declare, and I don't use this word lightly. A domestic war on all of

Self-Pity Is the Number 1 Gateway to Sin

"I think the ruling class of this country is getting demoralized. And I think they thought this would be a lot different coming into October of 2021. Things would look a lot differently. And instead of giving up after a lot of us were, I think, very disappointed after what happened when the current regime was implemented, not elected. That's a differentiation, implementation versus election, right? And I think a lot of us were very disappointed in that. But versus other years, we did not engage what I believe is the number one gateway to sin, which is self pity. And I think we all know this that self pity is the beginning of a lot of the worst sins, especially since of the flesh. I deserve this drink. I've had a tough day at work or things are so bad. I could just do what I want. The same is also politically, right? Which is things are not going the way I want them to. I don't need to show up to school board meetings. I don't need to show up to be a sidewalk counselor. I don't need to show up to do my job. Self pity is a bad thing and it's unbiblical, by the way. We as Christians are commanded to reject self pity. We are saved because of Jesus Christ and thanks to Jesus Christ. And we should have that kind of cheer and joy. And everything we do every single day. And so, but it's easy to want to kind of be involved in self pity, especially when you start to see things go in a direction you've never seen them go

Episode 53 Part 1 Our Relationship with Planned Parenthood Ft Amanda Weber - burst 02

"Like two. You kind of have the two extreme perspectives. And so for you to be able to come together and be able to say like, okay, so this is what this is what I found through my journey and experience with this object matter. I think that's really really wonderful. Yeah, the interesting thing is, is I could absolutely argue both points. You know, I know the talking points of both sides so well. I was actually I would go speak at the capitol in Sacramento California on behalf of Planned Parenthood and speak to the news outlets and speak to the representatives and stuff there. And then later, I ended up being a kind of social media coordinator for Abby. So I was responding to people on her social media platforms and stuff. And helping her with her outreach, not because I was pro life or not because I was opposed to abortion. But I could very much respond as she would, because I knew exactly what the talking points and the important points were. And. Her stances and her things have very much changed over time. But at the time when I volunteered at Planned Parenthood, I am not gonna lie. I hated the pro life movement. I mean, vehemently hated the pro life movement, partially because Planned Parenthood kind of set that in my mind that these were the bad guys. These were the people trying to take our rights away, and they were trying to ruin my life and all this. So I had this very strong narrative in my mind of what these people were, but also because I had a personal experience. And this is something I haven't talked about publicly, but I had this personal experience where I found myself in an unplanned pregnancy shortly after my mom passed away. And I panicked and I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to have an abortion and I reached out to the pro life movement to the people that had been protesting at my clinic for all this time and saying, we love you and we care about you and will help you no matter what. And I reached out, and I said, look, this is a situation I'm in. And here I am, you know, playing Paradise court putting her tail between her legs, saying I need your help. And it seemed on the surface. It's okay, we're going to take you to the crisis pregnancy centers and we're going to help you, but it was really, we're going to give you diapers and formula and you can figure out the hell out on your own. And that was very disheartening because here I am a person that just lost her mom. I'm on my own. I have no money. I have nothing to speak up. I'm literally scraping by month month and they're going, well, we'll give you some diapers and formula. And I just had the worst taste in my mouth about the entire movement because I thought that that's what they were, you know, or these people that were love you and we're going to take you under our wing. Oh, no, you're too much trouble. You're too needy. You have too many needs. And Abby was the first person that I came across that wasn't like that that she very much when I end up getting pregnant with my son said, what

I'm so proud of that life. Top comedy you know this next comic from the flappers acoustic duboc give it up for abbey fantastic. I didn't even start with. What's your name. What's abby rahm abby. Rahm what's that mean. There's a lot of different translations in in like some hindu people in india they say Means like pleasure or connection a gaba. Abby rome was a disciple of worship tanya. who's kind of like their original hari. Krishna okay yeah all right all right so it doesn't translate to anything although it. Yeah rama's god. I hope he's not like the. Who's the guy who started mormonism. Joseph smith yeah hope. He's not like the joseph smith of india because the story is is like you just showed up as a reincarnation christians in you know told. The story was blue. Nope sometimes they're blue in the stories like somebody shows up and it's like yeah india's fascinating. They got cool I think it would be challenging for me because growing up i believed everything And then i had to like get a little bit more discerning right like i'd read any book by anybody and as long as they said they were christian. I would believe anything they said. It's still that way. I feel like i've been burned enough. Yeah i mean like really out there. I'm telling you the story. It was in africa. I read this book and it was his guidance. I went into the ocean. And that's where the devil is and that's where they make ladies lingerie and i was like wait a minute. This isn't true and that's and it ruined me. Well how could you be lying in the name of god you and then you realize people are lying in the name of a of different things time and then i feel like india if i was more pure or maybe just more childlike. I could go and really enjoy it. But i'd be like go here and your name is written on a parchment from five hundred years ago with the date. You're going to be in india. And i now it'd be like all right this baloney did you watch the movie. Life of pi did that made me understand it a little bit more. Appreciate a little bit more. Which part the ending like ba ca. You and it's not true. Is that not your. They're like because it's like a lot mean for most of society. Most people did not read right so to pass things down has to be through stories. You have to make the story interesting enough to be passed down. And then it's like it's like a story that you pass down then you on packet right which also leaves room for people on packet and reorganize it however they like right that's right so that's how you see a lot of like kind of sensational stories. They might be not literally true word. There's just another way of understanding them where it's not even look past it or if tuneful yeah some other thing. Yeah and that's what. I'm just starting to even consider think about your other dimension or win the same space or on. Yeah interesting no. I know what you mean. I found the life of pi. When i saw i wasn't really ready for it. I should watch it again. I'm gonna watch it again. Because he's so. That i watched and i was like so. It was true was a tiger on the boat. Eager tiger represented the evil. Like the guy on the boat that killed the people at the end the twist is but also escaped was a tiger and thing like no. There wasn't a tiger. It was all people. I thought at the end though they go attack people. I got that at the end. Isn't there was a story that said like among tiger extra twist. They added on top of the fine. That's what it means. I the first twist where i was like. Oh i get it. It's a metaphor. The man was like a tiger. The man was tiger. Okay but then at the end they go like but there really was a tiger and it gives you one of those like hollywood staff they added. Maybe yeah. i don't know how can't wait for the sequel. I yes some truths are so big. They can only be told lies. That's that's one. I like and myth doesn't mean not true it means always true. It doesn't mean literally trip means the essence of it is always true Whether or not the facts of the story yeah may your soul. Well read like. I feel like sometimes i talked to people that are like spiritual nyc have like in the like to talk to me about this stuff and i'm like dude i'm like i'm like just starting like and sometimes i'll like meet people who aren't even hard christmas and they'll break down the books better than me like if i had a conversation with duncan trussell. You'd probably be breaking it down to me better than i know. Yeah and i'm like that's kind of embarrassing. You're still young man for me. All all the real hardcore like i'm going to read this and memorize it sort of stuff started when i was like. I don't know older than you. That's cool my timelines on certainly totally on point my comedic and spiritual timelines similar to yours and the more you even out in your career the more time you have to spend the on. I don't want to say better stuff again. Better stuff.

When did you start chanting again. When did you get the beads. And the way was up there now. I had a lot of free time to. And i just started chanting again and then i realized forever. I've been trying to meditate. I'd like try. Tm i didn't do the class. And i have my own opinions about having to pay for a mantra. Whatever i i know my opinion all i know is i just don't feel like right now and try different things and absent whatever and that was like why not just like i know how to do this one. Yeah i'll i'll try this and then and started working and just the idea of having the beats the little something and i liked it. I don't know it just. I started doing it and i would feel the effects owed. I would feel anxiety. Go down. I would feel. I'm like this is cool. I'm not like i'm not doing. It is not like a results. Based thing where i don't have some spiritual reason behind doing it. I dislike doing it. Yeah and i used to hate doing it. When i was a kid and now you like and i like it is just do it and maybe i'll learn more about the reasoning behind it later but it just i like it. I don't do it every day. But i do most days and you know just trying to one. And then sometimes i do to three rounds and four and whatever. Each bead is the whole argyris. Mary christner rumour i and then you the next and then at the end of the beads. There's another mantra. Say once and then you turn them around and then you go backwards okay. Yeah and what about the theology do you are you into the yeah. I do what i read. My dad's like really into and i had. I never really talked to him. That much about this. I went back to visit recently so funny. United talking about that seinfeld moment where like the parents like. Hey i'm sorry about that. My add literally did that like we had this moment where he basically made like an immense to me for like just kind of an overall just like hey let's about like. Do you have any hard feelings. I'm like and it caught me so off guard where he was just like a very open vulnerable moment in he. Just kinda like. Give me real sincere apology for you. Know anything going. It was like it was like a very healing experience. Wow whatever and beautiful because see this sort spirituality does at least for me is it helps us extricate ourselves from our roles the role of father and son two parts were playing in a play. Yeah and sometimes spirituality can say. Let's put down the scripts and just talk to each other as equals. How'd i do And how do you feel. And i was able to talk about it and say like like i. I didn't like this. But i was also able to be like bob. Maybe maybe there's another reason for it was it was awesome. Yeah i love that. Yeah it for you. So what is your worldview. Now my worldview now is your into the karma thing my worldview now is like it doesn't matter what i believe it. It's like whatever i believe isn't gonna affect the universe like the universe can operate how works but why not just kinda lean into what seems to make sense in what seems to make me feel better and be of service to more people in me To live the best life in its. And so i'm just like i'm just open to whatever like i'll do crystals all do the some silly hippie thing. I'll read a book. Like i'm just like i'm just open. That's where i'm at right. Yeah just great place religious food and it's fun and i just like reading books and preaching the bottom half halfway through being an expert. Yeah and then just ever need needed guessing. They the goal your ten year ago. Yeah i'm trying to get that money is get out. Yeah at least so you can get out yet. A lot of people want to get money so they can get in more. You can't just quit halfway so you gotta you know what i mean like doing it for ten years. Yeah got want to get three. You're talking about thing. When i was like three years in for people like you gotta wait till ten years before the good stuff happens on mike. Maybe you do not me. And now i'm ten years in and not to say that i'm like niagara. It's not like a resentful thing from just like. Oh i guess right now. If you told me i'd be where i'm at ten years ago i'd be like bullshit. I be way more successful in that. It works out but also there was like a delusion but i never believed any of it either. I never believed. I could do anything even now that have done new faces. I'm like maybe. I can do comedy not done other cool stuff too. Yeah yeah that's really cool. Yeah i love that. And they were so right.

Yeah there was just like leader in withdraw from right halsey drink alcohol so you can feel normal exactly but the thing is if you are in alcoholic. Alcohol is only a symptom of alcohols only a symptom of the of the problem of the of the problem. Which is like a mental physical and spiritual abnormality right and so people drink so they don't have to feel themselves when you move the alcohol. If you're not working on yourself you just ask a crazy person you'll fill in something else. Yeah exactly my first. Six months pine ice cream like five. Seventy so weak because you. That's what pete rollins. Who's a philosopher wonderful man. He's like alcoholism or whatever it might be is actually the gift. Because it's telling you something is deeply wrong. But it's actually not just the alcoholism and it's like you were masking or medicating. Some feeling of disease muse. The you felt wrong in the world. Yeah and then it really latched onto this. One thing became an addiction. Got out of the way or maybe at the gene for it or whatever but if you don't address that you'll you'll become a dry drunk. They say you'll you won't have changed.

That's the attic rain. But it's also great though. Because then i get to live on the other side to and some people can just coast to coast through life and that's right on completely uneventful. The like there's no there isn't even like emotional events. It's just. I mean that sounds kind of good to just normal. Just just just just not even questioning. And i know what you mean like a person with addict tendencies myself. I like my extremes. Because i'll go. I'll just lean really hard this way but when you start leaning hard in ways that are good for you like you were saying hard work or or spiritual practice or exercise in your case that that can be beneficial. So you're just like well let's use what's wrong with me to do some good. Yeah and that's that's like what comedy is. Let's use what's wrong with me to do some good exactly. That seems to me. Like one of the points of life Like all the stories of the weird stuff that happened to us become our best stories. But it's that that resurrection of the story.

I just wanted to live in the city. Like i wanted to hit a light switch and the light turns on like on it to just be like regular normal like i used to love going and getting that sense of norm by going into this watching year like watching.

It's like hell i wash. That looks awesome because it does look awesome. Yeah it's like let's take life and give it right angles. Yeah all these things that don't exist in nature straight lines clean manicured lawns your area. Your room air conditioning. Tv and food and there is an appeal to that. Whatever value on a spiritual retreat. We come back and like the day we come back. We're on our phones so hard and we. We don't even beat ourselves up about it. That's like our old christian programming would say. Now you should say such a phony pieces you fact that man. It's just like really really in the moment and it was great and for some reason. I just wanna eat junk food right now. That's okay have you done the pasta. Have you know. I'm gonna do it. You are yeah yeah means. Start dating this girl.

We'll figure it out where you'll be like let's move in together so they like something extreme. I've heard a lot of great things about those retreats but they're also really difficult but that's kind of going back to the thought of just like what are my thoughts. I ten days. It'll be a good good amount of time to sort that out. I mean this is what we're avoiding mean. This is why we're constantly on our phones and on tv. Like i said this before but like my dad wasn't on his own because we didn't have smartphones but he was on his phone. Yeah meaning like we're all sort of on our phones. I think one of the reasons why people staring at their funds is so offensive to ass again at scapegoating. Yep like saying trump's insane her. The homeless person on the street is insane. You're insane even if you're not looking at your phone if i could see what's in your brain you're just scrolling through harass sexual members. Weird movie quote like books.

I'm painting a stereotype. But maybe if i was in isolation or if i didn't have this community and say that community you would have gone with the community that was sending you links. You would have joined the that absolutely white. Yeah we're what what's so different. Yeah that's what. I've always felt like if you if you're dating someone you don't like the way they lean politically or whatever their beliefs. Just go on their youtube clip. A bunch of links. That you stuff that you like fifty dollars algorithm just shove it out there and slowly. Don't say anything and you'll see them change. That is true. That is daniel son at the end of karate kid.

The bartender was there and he's like you need anything. I'm like y'all get a beer and a shot and i just spend it three times three times a one night abby. That's the obsessive thing. We're just you'll figure it out you'll get another twenty you'll you'll get a magical twenty on the ground and i spent it by the time you stood up. Yes as if to say. I had no other intention for this twenty. I never had another thought for twenty. Yes give me a shot. And i need to get home. Forget getting home yeah. It's miller time. Yeah holy shit. Yeah i know. Before i ever did a tried cocaine. That's like a heavy okay. I wanna hear that. That's heavy story but like in hindsight the crisp clarity yeah. It's like a great recognition of a problem and those early as just like but in hindsight. Yeah that's perfect example thinking yes you can't you can't stop and i know this is going to sound corny but like the way that i relate hardest to that as a box of oreos. Yeah just one more i. It's like yeah exactly. And i'm telling you abby i just like using food because it's a little less it's booze heads are talking about booze. Yeah i mean. Give me ten and i could walk you through it. The first one the first the first head of excitement is ooh tenorio. That's kind of as good as again. I'm glad i didn't get that marshmallow test when i was a kid. Just pick the little pieces off of course and then you don't get that second much rough. The first oreo is is as close as it gets to being. Good by oriole number three. You're not even enjoying a. You're starting to feel a little sick. Val said this to me. She was like sometimes think of my own body is a baby that i'm taking care of and it's like and your this weird kathy bates type character overfeeding. The baby and like how cruel that is and i was like. Oh my god. That's what i do. I'm just stuffing this poor baby. The soft baby body that has no control because the brain is in charge. And it's just like overfeeding and overfeeding and your case over drinking it over drinking it and kind of have to. That's like a way of splitting it into instead of going. It's me that wants the cookie. Goes like there's something that wants a cookie and then there's the body yep helps me have compassion for the body and go like maybe take it easy a little bit okay. So when did you do the cocaine. Oh never like crazy. I would do it like once a month but every time i do it was just just go hard. I only did that for a year and that was good. It accelerated my sobriety. I think it made shit get crazier. Yeah yeah and he just made. It made things a little clear right. Yeah what do you mean. I mean if i just drank. I wouldn't think i had problem. But if i drank and did coke then it's like i couldn't and then it became. They became like those wires. Cross where i can drink without doing coke coke but if i drink i'm going to do coke so i can't drink anymore interesting and then you wouldn't i'd still drink and then do coke but it just. It ruined drinking where i was like. Oh i can't drink yet and that's my whole night and i have been in the morning. Your i don't want to feel like shit all day tomorrow. Absolutely i remember my mom smoked in the seventy s and she was like i figure what why she told me this but she was like some people like to see. They only smoke when they drink. Drinking cigarettes are like so enjoyable together. Some of my hate to say this because we're talking about sobriety. But i remember the euphoria of nicotine and alcohol and carbon monoxide. There's the lightheadedness of that and being like. Wow this is the greatest thing in the world but then of course that's like five seconds and then the rest of the night is just kind of chasing that feeling next thing you know. You're coughing in the shower and it smells like a cigarette. And you're like this is insane but like the brain only really remembers the you fauria and it just chases that over and over and over but my mom was like but be careful because if you smoke when you drink then you'll drink just so you can smoke right which i was like. That's that's what addiction right and for me back to food. I said this. Emily gordon and she loved it for some reason. She quotes it. Sometimes so i guess. I had an impact on both of us. I would want chinese food. But i was sober so i knew chinese food wasn't like good for me. I'm talking about like garbage. Chinese food like really going so i would drink get chinese food and there was this weird awakening where it was like. Just get the chinese food right. You don't have to have nine mortiz than any if you want to eat like shit shit. Yeah just go ahead and do it and at least do it. A little more consciously and know what you're doing and experience it and get all bloated weird and be there for it instead of in the morning being like what the fuck was that. Okay so cocaine helped you realize you're sort of going down there on the wrong way. And that crazy euphoria feeling is that you just want to feel normal for a second. You just wanna feel how a healthy spiritual person feels normally like people who are addicted to cigarettes that basically all the addiction is. It's just a with is just you're always in a perpetual state of withdrawal from nicotine. The senate can you put that cigarette out. You start withdrawing from nicotine. Yeah so you smoke it and you think oh the cigarettes good is like no the cigarette you just get to feel how you felt before you became a smoker for a few minutes. Wow how now that it's gone. I'm like now. I get that satisfaction of a cigarette all day because all the cigarette does just remove the withdrawal symptoms..

"Show description of this pete read book and he'll explain it to you even though he hasn't finished it. Yeah yeah. I'll read the first two thirds of a book and then start immediately. Tried to get all my friends to read it. The big joe cabbies you work out. I just got this treadmill. I've been using it every day for three weeks. And i'm already telling people like you don't work out like i'm immediately a nonsmoker. The i don't have a cigarette. I never smoked. But i start telling people shouldn't smoke obsolete even though you just stop smoking what was your sobriety like. We'll get back to the story. i'll never. I'll never forget the story. Perfect your but we can. We can give it a my the best thing. I got sober twenty three. I got sober wall work in the door at the comedy store. Which is the darkest place and being sober in that environment like being newly sober to am sitting at the back door. I went to coke. Heads are talking in your ear like it was quite the task but it was. I mean it's for sure. The hands down the best decision. I ever made slowly like i before. I got sober. Had this almost like vision of myself of like what i could be like. I just briefly sought. And i was like i wanna be like dat person and so i've just stumbled was like event. You had a moment where you remember. Yeah i was sitting. Yeah it was like a vision. I know what happened. Where acting class. Okay so you're in acting class. You got like a little visit from highest self. Yeah yeah just tell me every whispered in my ear. And i just kind of tuned out of the class and i just started just envisioning it just this kind of low resolution vision of like what i could be you know and i realized what i could do anything like i could see. You know what triggered it nothing. Nothing just like i was just it was almost like i was in this acting class thinking about maybe getting better. I've only keep my dumb did a three week acting intensive and that's it and it's better than a lot of the actors crushing myself included. You know what i mean like. It's okay you can't like it's okay. People are talking their way through those acting challenges. And i'm like you're acting right. I know it's a disappointment but that. Yeah that's you're on the way that's sort of what it is yeah But yeah it was in this class in. Just the idea was just like oh what if i just got better at this and then i just started seeing. These roadblocks smoke a pack of cigarettes. A day well. Gosh i get rid of that. In the mike i fact i drink like every night and like and then i just like what would that be like and then like what if i did this and then i just like the vision just like almost like a manic like i was just like oh i could like i can do anything in my life just like this crazy idea and then that was like the first sort sorta seed in then i i dunno i later mean. It took me a from that moment to getting sober as like a year. Just trying it on my own and just kind of stumbling forward. But i've always like taking step back stumbled forward. Just gone in that general direction. Side to side moving forward. And then yes so was the best thing ever so you saw them not just as like good things to do for yourself which is not a compelling narrative right. It'd be good if you stop drinking. Every night and smoking cigarettes you saw them as like impediments to be coming this best version of yourself. Yeah and that. That's a beautiful vision. That's like i want that and now there's like these roadblocks and that's a better story. Yeah let's move these so we can get there instead of let's move these so we can be a good boy when tell our doctor that we don't smoke not a good story for five seconds. Something yeah and you and you saw. Yeah and you were visited by. Yeah i love that i mean. I've done the hypnosis things where they're like. Hang out with your best self. you know. They're always putting in some garden. It's like there you are and you're fifty. What is your best self say to you when you're twenty whatever or thirty and they tell you this stuff like don't worry everybody kind of has similar things. Don't worry what he so worried about. Like it's gonna be okay and self love. I mean that was a that was a game changer. For me i forget what book it was in but it was. Somebody was looking at like a beautiful house and they were like. Oh i could never live in a beautiful house like that and the voice in their head said. Don't worry you won't and it was like right. Lesson was until you go. I could be a house like that and i. I haven't told this for a while on the podcast. But i remember mine was. I was backstage. I was doing best week ever live. Which was this college tour. And i realized. I recognized that whenever i thought of having my own show. There was this huge chorus of voices. That are like that's not for you. That's for somebody else. I literally couldn't picture myself on the side of a bus because like advertising shot. Yeah it's why we crashing. But that's why we did that. Like you have to be able to see yourself on a bus. So girlfriend bought a bus ad. And what i was trying to say was like somebody in that case her needs to believe in you. But it's best if it's you. So that's what like visualization is and. That's what sort of like vision. Boards never done that staff but in that moment it was powerful enough to go like no. I'm going to start picturing myself on the side of but because let's be honest sort of embarrassing it's a little grotesque little gauche. The egg should be on the side of a bus. But it's like. Are you doing it abby yet or are you do it. Yeah and you had that moment. Yeah you were visited by your future self and exactly and so you said you. I love that image that you were going criss cross. You're still moving up. Yea the slowest possible falling shore. All the time still inching inching forward. You just tried to go on your own sober. Try last rankings over. I tried it for like a year on and off until i eventually started a program in the obsession was removed and i've continued to the obsession. Yeah it was gone. I don't know like. I was like that was like my first realization of like i tried my absolute hardest top my willpower fighting tooth and nail to not have that drink on certain nights and i went to a meeting and for whatever reason i just. I just hit me all the sudden. I'm like it's gone really gone. No that couldn't have been me. Because i tried my best. So maybe maybe who knows who cares. I also think like it doesn't matter what i believe like. You mean it was something else you know something else. Something lifted it from yes something greater than me. Remove that obsession woes like a gift that was given going to the meeting. And what was it. Somebody's share. that really touched you or just by virtue of admitting that you needed help yet. I think is admitting needed how walking showing up being there everything just hearing people talk and realizing it can be gone and then i don't i don't know what what what was it about getting. What made you realize like. I think i'm an alcoholic. Not just i like to have a whiskey ginger at night all i mean so many times i mean just embarrassing myself doing coke till the next day get into trunk puking just being a moron i remember before early on my first experience realizing around like oh i might not have control over this like i was having was living on vancouver island i was at a bar mink hoover had like one hundred dollars to my name i drink. I spent all one hundred dollars at the bar. And i'm like shall am.

"Love what you just said. Have you read the book four agreements. Yes i just got the audio book. And i've been listening to it over and over again trying to like really grasp it and understand it and that's kind of what it's all about to like. It's like you're born like dislike. You're born light. You're born this happy being and then society conditions you two and there's just so many agreements on a day to day it's like oh you suck it this and then you agree to. It's like bone that's locked in now and it's like trying to d program that and figure out who i am and stuff and it also demystify is reality like it's i was at a party. Last night was a lovely party. But we're having like kind of show biz discussion. Yes like a show biz discussion. And when i'm doing that. I like to go. Oh my god this is what the infinite undulating savage insane gorgeous frac deal of eternal is doing. Its thing this conversation because when you get locked into those conversations and they're good conversation. I'm not saying they're bad. Let's say we're talking about how head lassos a good show. Even now as we're speaking there are blue. Hindu gods infusing practical like it's happening and this is just what we're seeing. This is the channel that are receivers tuned to so. I'm looking at abbey on this couch so we can talk about farts dick's or whatever the fuck but like there's something i know you know it's really just under this. There's like fucking thing itself. Yeah like to ghostbusters. Guns hitting each other point where they hit each other and that's reality and if we zoom into that reality there's just sitting on the couch going so would you get into but like if you zoom out you and i make myself laugh all the time. So what i'm saying is those agreements that society makes you make makes you deeper. And deeper into into the illusion. Yes and you forget that you are. I like the mantra. I'm a point of sacrificial fire. Held within the fiery will of god right because that's similar to the two blasts of the ghostbusters go. You're like you're a spark flying from the to ghostbusters guns flying into each other. You're you're a spark of that. Your whole world is just a spark of two blasts of infinity rubbing up again rich other but in that spark there's a whole lot of bullshit school. Yeah where this boys don't pierce their left ear that or they're right here. That means you're gay. There's all this bullshit. The super bowl and pepsi presents doritos as like your future like xbox live and twitch in its and all of that gets you go into a contract with that and the more you get deeper into it the more you forget and to demystify it. We could just say that you're floating in infinity that you're floating in outer space that you're floating in iraq that no one knows what the fuck is going on here. Is that what we're saying. Yeah it's like it's almost. It's so overwhelming that we have these like this this illusion just so we don't just completely just drift off into. That's right wondering that's right. Yeah so that's impart the service of it. It's nice to go for a walk. You can get an ice cream. Yeah it is and valid. I have days where we go. No deep thoughts today because we do it so much. Let's just. Let's just enjoy the the orchard. Let's not worry who planted that sort of thing right but then. I think that gets overdone. Would you agree. It gets overdone to get where you're like. Of course there's nothing going on because you feel like a visitor here right. Yeah sometimes you've got to clock in and shut those thoughts off. Just be like all right. I gotta just kind of do my thing and then the other times you just wanna think about the world right. It's so crazy. Because i like i completely shut that part of my brain in my life off forever was just like like i just want to do comedy workout. Be a white american guy you know and now i'm just like i'm done with this. I'm how old are you. I'm thirty that's about right. Yeah yeah you did it. Yeah cove it. The lockdown really helped helped perspective. Yeah take the pause pause and reevaluate who were you. That was a spiritual experience for everybody whether they use spiritual language or not because you vanished. Abby roberto didn't exist pete. holmes didn't exist. Because pete holmes is a relationship pete. Holmes is an idea that is only affirmed by other people going european homes. And that's the same with you. Yeah and then when you're alone and you can't be in relationship with other people you're just you're just awareness and then and how many of us went like. Why am i. Flying to south dakota for four days and i'm bear in making like this much money after expenses and you're like why am i doing that all the time saying there isn't a time for that but i'm forty two so many people were like when this is over. I think i'm going to make my own bread. People's are making their own breads probably so many dad ship. Yeah like wait a minute life. My dad would make the best homemade bread. of course he did. Yeah the best he has. He has a starter grind we in the whole the whole deal and that's life what we're realizing is i'm preaching so much we're having our needs met as if the point of life is what happens after your needs are met yet but there's all of this art of like chop wood and carry water. Make bread you realize on a hike. It's not about getting to the destination it's about. The hike and spirituality is so much about being like spirituality is doing the dishes but now i have a dishwasher and then he started letting machine wash your dishes and then you're like well what do i do and it's like go on instagram. And like and wonder why we're depressed. We've completely lost so needs are so mad. They're selling thousand times over already and we're realizing the point of life isn't just meeting your needs how you meet your needs. And this goes back to the amish. It's not what you see. It's how you see it's like what do you see when you see what you see now. What you're looking at. We think it's what we're looking at a suicide squad and there was like slow motion. You're gonna forget it it's about converting and changing and plugging into a new way of seeing a lot of that comes from making goddamn bread..

I'm so glad that you're here. And you guys may know her. Instagram accounts tabletop affair. Because i love everything about what you do your messaging your heart or some kind of tell everyone who's not familiar with you. Just what you love. So i am kind of really in love with the table. I think that there is a lot of great community connection. That comes when you just approach. The table and food is just that natural conduit. They kind of gets us there. And so i started a blog and started an instagram. Where it's all things easy thirty minutes or less like really inexpensive because at the end of the day. It's not about perfection. It's not about presentation. It is about the people we can get there then. Hey i'll help you. I think it's so good. I know we like know your parents have like phrases that you kind of make fun of them for and you're my dad's is always like break bread with people. Yeah break bread with you. Sit down and you have a meal with someone. There is a level of connection and intimacy. That is bigger than if you were just like texting or something. Didn't you know writing it. Slows down illeg gets us in that mindset of let's talk. Let's break the bread yet. Let's actually have community talking about right so but it's intimidating so i think some people hold back like invite people over because they feel like they're not a good cook or the table is not great and beautiful but you like lower all those boundaries. And you're break those walls down brian. It doesn't have to be full. Instagram and pinterest and everything out. There has told us that it has to be perfect. Have to be you know this. Perfect chefs food network star. Name it. and you don't have to be. You just need to be at the table and is better than to be at the table with great food. I know that's right okay. So one of the things that she do she has different tables. The male have themes which i love so he picked them for the show today. And i picked this one selfishly popcorn and i have kids.

Lizzie Borden, Axe Murderer, Maybe

"The incident. Nicky what do we need to know about what happens on the night that are on the day that andrew and abby are all i guess hacked to death is the is the right way to put it. Yes the day they are axe murdered. Well i mean we know we have a pretty clear timeline of what happened actually Because it happens in a short window of time when they're alone so abby was the first to be killed And she was struck in the back of the head and then hacked sawmilling seventeen times like it was a pretty vicious brutal murder And then it's like. I think an hour an hour and a half later when her husband andrew comes home and then he is hacked as well and there are people in the house when this is happening. So the made is there though. She is supposedly up on the third floor. Taking a nap and lizzie. Bordon is there. She said you know some people say she's in the barn for a while she comes back. It's an unclear. It's unclear where everyone is During this but the maids as the she hears lizzy say come. You know my father is dead and then the police are called and they do kind of shoddy investigation and it goes from there. She's arrested The murders happened on fourth So she's arrested about a week later and then we get to the trial and the trial. Is i suppose not that big of a surprise. A sensation is covered breathlessly. Not just in the town and not just even in boston. But it's let's pick up national attention. You know described to us kelly. Why what is it. That's appealing about this trial. And what are the narratives that emerge particularly as we said they start to tilt a little bit in lizzy favor. Yeah so there's so much about this. That i think would not happen if the family were not wealthy. This was related to like as being like the titanic of its moment. What seems a little suspect me. But if you think about like the exorbitant amount of wealth and how tragedy gets connected about people sometimes have like an insatiable appetite to want to know what happens to rich people. And why and so. And so lizzie gets caught up in this now. She is supported by her community. The women's temperance group comes to her aid. They protest by her side saying that she could not have committed this crime and it really becomes sort of this. Well you can't even say a. He said she said moment because her father.

'cause i'm old and i have to say so. Everyone comes in usually the same thing. We don't communicate with. They say over and over again. We're not communicating. We need help communicating. It's here and really. The communication is failing because of a different problem which is competition and we compete with our partners.

"Really enjoyed your ten tad ex talk in part because we both know that everyone who comes to our office arrives believing that communication is the big problem in their relationship. But you say there is a bigger problem. Tell me about that you know so. I have the same same as you. Everyone comes in. Our problem is we. Don't communicate and number one we both know. You're you're communicating all the time. Why you like it or not. So that's you might not like what you're communicating but you're communicating. that's number one but number two. The real problem is competition and we learned this from a young age. We saw our own parents do it and we say things like it's your turn to put away the dishes. I took jack to piano practice on monday. It's your turn. You have to take sophie to baseball on friday. We use spent money on this on going to spend money on this. There is so much. Tit for tat. There is so much keeping score watching. What our partners are doing or not doing comparing it to what we're doing.

My second grader and the teacher at one point said you know you wanna draw baseball cap if you want this character to be boy or you can draw pigtails if you wanted to be. A girl and a student raised their hand. I don't know the students under the student raised their hand and went. Is it okay. Our picture is non binary and the two and it was like not a stopdown not in anything they all know what non binary means and i was like. Oh yeah maybe there is hope because these concepts are getting through to them about how to handle social emotional situations votes right. And i think what's so beautiful about it is. They're learning how to accept themselves which means they're able to accept others like you can't really accept others until you've accepted yourself. That is right monica. I think we're getting there with these little peeps. I like to think sometimes one hundred years down the road. What are the things we are going to be. Most embarrassed about So many things in so many other cultures folks like me coup in some ways have been marginalized and oppressed. I didn't make as much money as a soccer player. As i could have had been straight and long haired truly like. That's a reality for me. But you know i feel like in other cultures people like me are like revered set aside and like celebrate in you know i just hope for that next abby the next person that comes through that they are revered and celebrated for their perfect selves. 'cause i mean all of the labels and stuff are kinda just bullshit and i think over time they're gonna go away. I think we have to go through that turbulence because you were forced to go through it on your own come to terms with all these things who you were in the world insofar as a woman as a gay person the younger generation who is demanding. Specificity that is exactly glennon pushing those forms back going. No no these should both say person because there's just person yup but it's because of people like you who are making the younger generations demand so we are thankful very well. I think all the thanks should go to glennon push my own self. 'cause i that's what our partners can be. Great for two is just mirrors like. Hey here's maybe something that you're blinded to or something that you're not getting truly honest with yourself about. That's what i think. Having an amazing partner is good for is like somebody who will hold standards and glennon. I wrote marriage vows and we come back to those vows every single january of every year and we interpret them in different ways every year because life changes and so we rewrite them and it is a practice of ours.

Lesbian manic depressive captain leader romantic hero addict failure and then the last chapter is human somewhere. You said i had created yourself. All these categories that were both generated from you generated externally helped create you but shut you off from becoming human fully. Human glennon has said this a lot. you know. We're all kinda like russian nesting dolls and as we get older. We kinda keep putting on all of these costumes. And that's what i thought for me growing up. That's what i thought. I had to do to mature to age to get. Wisdom is to put on all these different costumes and see which one fit. And i think that now having gone through a lot of my life granted i'm still fairly young thirty eight but i realized that the more you can actually take those costumes off and get down to that little small immobile russian nesting doll. That is like who you are your true self that is like the humanity of all of us and we all are in there. I visited very random. But i just wanna share it. Because it was reading thinking he ended with human which seems like the simplest most elemental thing of all but is really the work of a lifetime. Right i was thinking about this you. When i studied theology paul tillich wrote the courage to be and he's called an existentialist feel ogen. I read it when i was older. Because i was emphasized when i thought that to be that being but the current the book is actually about how the courage it takes right. The courage is the work.
