Interview with Andrea Wilson Woods
"Welcome back. I've got Andrea Wilson Woods on the line Andrea. How are you? I'm good. Thank you. Great to have you here in the pre-show. We were talking about all kinds of different things we could talk about and we're in the middle of a pandemic at the time of this recording so we had talked about, you know loss in in grief, and I know that's something we want to dive in and your backstory a bit off beforehand, but ultimately, you know, when we will get to the point of with covid-19 and and some of the losses and and the grief that people are facing right now. So sure what the audience your backstory and in the world to do. I'm sure so when I was twenty-two years old, I was living in Los Angeles. I had graduated from college and I was trying to figure things out like most people I think and I ended up getting custody of my then eight-year-old sister Adrienne and I became her legal guardian and I was her only parent and I raised her. All through my 20s until a month after her fifteenth birthday. She was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and it was really shocking. I mean she was a very active kid. She had no symptoms until the day she felt pain which was the day and ER doctor told us what he saw on her CAT scan and that was day one of her very short 107 day off cancer journey, and she died a few months after my 29th birthday and it just changed the course of my life because she she was everything to me and so about a year later after I turned Thirty. I started a non-profit dedicated to primary liver cancer and I like to tell people that when I took my advice on this, you know, I did not want to start a non-profit. It was not like in my dreams when I was a little girl. I wasn't stupid scared me. It's just at that time. There was not a single organization involved. Us doing anything about her particular type of cancer and that's the only reason I started one. I'm so grateful I did and I've been doing that over 17 years and then less than two years ago. I actually started a health Tech startup. It's a for-profit. It's for all cancer patients and caregivers. And then I also published a book last fall which is about raising and losing my sister to liver cancer and it's called better off bald. What's amazing work you do and and I agree when we're little kids. We don't tend to think long going to run a non-profit no choice firefighters police officers or or you know leaders of businesses or you know race car drivers or princesses or all options are on there. I don't recall wage are running a nonprofit is being on my original list. Oh I did I did run a few non-profit organizations for a little over a decade. So I now that I am Don't I can't say that I I miss some elements of it. I miss others of course, but there are some aspects of it. I don't miss it at all. But that's another story for another day. So I see you had all of those things happen in the in the you had thrust on you. Okay, you're going to be a caregiver now and then a very short window of time after that unfortunate bounce houses. And and when you go through something like that, you know, it it for me it wouldn't you know, I talked with people that have gone through something like this is with the shock of it. All is so intense that it you know for some it says just makes them Nam. It's like they're not, you know, they're still grieving they hurt or in pain and they're sad. It's just the shock of the the quickness of it. All is something that a lot of people, you know has a long-term effect on them just a shock of how in the world that that just home. What will you know any like what hippie it kind of thing. So I'm sure you've experienced something similar to that. Of course, you know with working with people that have to deal with that horrible horrible disease thought I lost many family members to cancer and a variety of different types too. And it's devastating for families and everything, but I'm sure they knew people that you work with and all of that that's gotta be one of the biggest thing I have to deal with is just the shock of of hearing that news and and trying to navigate through it. Yeah. Definitely. I mean I've in addition to my sister. I've lost five other family members to five different kinds of cancer and birth. I agree. I mean when you're in it cancer forces you to live very much in the present and you know, you're making decisions often on the Fly and you're just you're just ended and your office certainly adapting to changes the often you have no control over but then after whether it's after you survived cancer after your loved one dies, you know then off. Just sort of go through all those emotions and you know, there are the five stages of grief and what's interesting is, you know, people think that they go in a certain order know they don't, you know, anger depression a bargaining acceptance Cohen denial, right? I have accepted my sister's death for a long time, but the one stage of grief I had never experienced was anger because I didn't know who to be angry at and I was really, you know, I didn't know and there were plenty of other people who are angry might be half. So I didn't I didn't have to do that but a few years ago, I was watching this TV show TV show Netflix and the final episode was this girl walking across the stage in her high school graduation, and then it faded to walking across the stage in her college graduation and my sister loves school. She was an honor student 4.0 GPA. She already knew where she wanted to go to college. I mean, she she had all these plans and for some reason and that dog Moment that hit me and it was I was angry like I was just furious and and the anger just to hit me more than fifteen years later. I'm really shocked me, you

How I Lived My Double Life
"I WanNa talk about my former double life before I quit drinking. My double life consisted of two parts. One was the part that consumed alcohol in the other was the part that was spent recovering from alcohol. And making sure it looked like. I didn't have a drinking problem because this show appeals to so many gray area drinkers. Who Don't have a stereotypical rock bottom. I I know I speak for most listeners. When I say that you get what I'm talking about when I mentioned this double life so we're going to go back to the fall of twenty sixteen right before I quit. Drinking and the typical weekday would consist of me waking up around seven o'clock wildly hung over full of shame and full of guilt and hatred for myself. I usually woke up around three a m each night in a state of sheer panic and then would toss and turn for the rest of the night getting really bad sleep so by seven. I'm Hungover sleep-deprived and dehydrated. I would look in the mirror and feel so disappointed in how I couldn't have stopped it. Just a few drinks the night before. I would then chug water and coffee and drink whatever. My hangover cure was that week. Green juice a Kombucha or some sort of spicy shot. If something unhealthy that costs like thirteen dollars thinking that that might reverse the damage from the night before and after I was awake and a little less dehydrated usually go meet with my trainer and workout. Every minute would be brutal but I needed it because it helped me sweat out the rest of the booze from the night before if it was one of those days where. I just didn't have it in me to work out. I would ask my trainer if we could just go for a walk instead and sometimes if I was still a little drunk from the night before I'd put vodka my water bottle to either help the oncoming hangover or. Continue the buzz throughout the rest of the day now. This was a time when I was running a business with a fulltime staff so I was only working about twenty maybe twenty five hours a week and I answer emails. Do Busy Work. Take phone calls with my partner. Put out small fires at work. Make an appearance. And basically just try to balance shaking off last night's hangover and obsessing over when I could drink next and sometimes I would just be anxious all day. You know planning how I could try and get through the day without drinking but usually there would be a lot more days of planning drinking if I didn't have any more booze in the house. I had to routines was either run to whichever liquor store was next on my list of stores that I'd alternate between because I didn't want to go into one store too often and look like an alcoholic so I'd go pick up my vodka and make small talk with the cashier and make jokes and pretend to be interested in their day because surely someone who stops and talks to a stranger and his polite and makes them laugh. Can't be an alcoholic right or if I wanted wine or if I was in a phase of swearing off liquor like setting those rules for myself. At that time. I'd go to the grocery store and I buy a bottle of wine and a bunch of expensive snacks and cheeses. That made it feel like more of a treat. You know less of a necessity. I'd just one bottle is a form of restriction thinking that if I only had the one bottle in the house then that would stop me at four glasses of wine and expensive cheeses. Were there both as a snack that I could bend John. Wall drunk and also because if the cashier saw this spread that hey they wouldn't think I was an alcoholic. Maybe they think I was just having friends over throughout my day of busy work and counting down to when I could drink again. I'd be down. Rolaids my incessant heartburn. I couldn't drink enough water and without going into too much detail. I'll just say that my gut health was absolute garbage because alcohol eats away your stomach lining so the time I spent in the bathroom doing bathroom. Things was usually something that had to be planned around especially first thing in the morning. Usually I'd have a really heavy lunch to help my hangover and about half the time it would involve a glass of wine or a beer. It is tacos. I figured if I was going out for lunch and having white wine during the day that that was just European. You know alcoholics. Don't drink twelve dollar glasses of greasy outright. I was obsessed with finishing my day by like four or five. Pm A hard stop because that was the time to start drinking again. And I knew that I would be unreliable. Once I started I also slurred my speech when I drink so I didn't like to answer the phone after five because I didn't want anyone to know I was drunk. Once I started drinking which was usually at home alone I would do things. It felt productive while I drink because productive. People can't be alcoholics right and deep clean my house vacuum or I'd send a text to a friend and just say hi and make sure I was making an appearance because alcoholics drink alone and they don't reach out to friends right or I'd makes playlist on spotify of my favorite sad songs and sit for hours listening and obsessing over my past. Usually I take a hot bubble bath and drink in the bathtub. Sometimes I'd watch TV and that would go in two directions either madman or sex in the city so a show that may drinking look fabulous and I'd drink along with it. Thinking see their drinking their faces off to. This is fabulous. It's been a problem or I'd watch intervention or celebrity rehab or something like that and think see. Their problems are so much worse than mind. They're homeless and in jail. My drinking isn't that

Recipe edition: Adrian Martin's Classic Carbonara
"Hi I'm Adrienne Martin and I'm from wildflower restaurant in Camden. My favorite goto recipe is a classic Carbonara. Whenever I'm really really stuck on I have ten minutes free in the evening time. This is the recipe. I'll make so the classic normany is Gone Chali which is pig's cheek. What we do with Gwen? Charlie's we dice it up. We put it into a dry pan. Dry Pan fry it until we get it nice and crispy in the meantime while that's happening. You put on a pot of water bringing up to the boil spaghetti and their on. Let it cook away so once. Spaghetti HITS THE WATER. You have about eight to ten minutes to finish this whole dish so this is why. It's like one of those dishes. That's quite easy to kind of pull together nice and quick so spaghetti's in the Guantanamo is frying nicey. If you can't get your hands on going to you can just use regular smoked bacon. We ought in a clove of garlic. Don't even bother to smash it on your board straight into the pond and let it kind of perfume and flavor that Crispy Bacon in there. Once this happens we get an egg so base one egg per person so I normally cook for two. Probably eat for to myself to be honest with you. So we have to eggs cracked into a boat. And the cheese. That's traditionally used a classic. Urban Meyer is Pekka Reno Cheese. So into a micro playing great in some of that cheese into the egg whisk it together with a fork and then what you do is at this stage once you have that finished. Your Pasta should be almost ready. Check it have a little taste of it. Make sure that it's cooked almost fully through and what we do is take what your tongues across into the Bacon Spaghetti. Take some of the water which is well because it's picking up the sauce in the baking pan. We want to stop the frying process so that water will stop the frying process completely. Take it off the heat and finally you're going to live. She get ready to serve it straight away. So this is the last thing you have to do is get the egg and cheese that you've mixed header folded through the Spaghetti on the Bacon and finally finish it with cracked black pepper. Serve it up straightaway. Great a little bit more pet green overtop nego. Classic carbonare

There's Times where you know. We'll be smack in the middle of our family vacation for Christmas and he had an opportunity to do something in San Francisco. The man got on a plane the morning of got their did his GIG got on a plane back for a red eye back and it's sacrifice a lot of it is sacrificed. It's so worth it all. I'm like we need to have you back because I still have all these like first of all you lost all this weight we need to back Israel and your little love story laid back about it now or we have time how much time we go all right. Okay so fast. Version you the question. Okay well okay speaking of Israel. He's so nice I went to. We went to your launch though. Yeah you said it right. Outside my jewelry long we went to that. I was supposed to go NAS not being able to go and I said you know what screw it. I'm just GONNA go like. She seems like a nice girl. Find that again because I know there are so many young women out there that have moments like that where they're like well. This is the person that technically connected me. I have to go with them right and like you don't have to take a moment and if I'm on I now recognize you separate from her and I love that jazz so go for that matter that then. That's what up anyway exactly and and I was like. I'm going to go to that so I was gonna say hello to you. But I saw Israel worse and I like tapped him on the show or whatever and he turned around and I think he thought I was somebody he knew. That's my husband. He's so so we we se. He's never met a stranger. He's never met a stranger. That's amazing it's amazing wildly annoying so we'll talk to anyone on airplanes like he literally will be. Aweso begin to exchange numbers. He's like very friendly. And I think as a New Yorker growing up is like stranger danger. Walk Forward Right. Make eye contact you know. You're not like that though at your I've gotten if I'm honest. He has been a huge influence in that sense. It's okay to be like hi and family and yet possessing thirsty raised with so many like thoughts in your head or like you're putting these things like okay. If you're walking up to people like you I didn't know you originally but I'm like no 'cause see on instagram. I do I come off. Thirsty has got nursing with my just being friendly. It's the industry. Were into just here. I feel that way. I feel that way a lot too. Because especially like your more recognizable because you're with Miguel right so people already. Oh well we know who she is. They don't know me and they're like who's this girl like. I feel that's real. It can be uncomfortable. I don't want to come off like you said I want to come off like I'm just trying to be a friend because you're a celebrity. Yeah I'm just trying to meet people and talk and have a good smell right exactly. Yeah just a friendly person gas yourself real quick but going back. So how did you quick story? I do meet Israel. How did you know he was? The one and was age to minority holder is. Was THAT AN ISSUE. Or never okay. I've always liked germen. Just Random House save Even my ex was nine years older than me X. before that was ten years older than me yet the majority of guys update of always been older. My parents are also twelve years. Apart which Israel fame age difference Jason Beyond also twelve years apart and nobody mentioned that God forget that too. I know they looked closer. Yeah they do. Yeah but Okay look I'm holding onto it. I will take that I received so I did film a faith based film called. I'm in love with Church girl. I saw. I'm sorry to hear that it was on Visi. Yes joke that we have. He ended up coming filmed. It never heard about it again and I was like Damn. Yeah we didn't even make to DVD like nothing happened with the film Ended ended probably three years later after I shot it right. Yeah three years later after I shot in twenty ten It ended up going to as an independent film in two thousand thirteen because Israel came on as a producer and pleadings along. Exactly Okay as a Gospel Singer. He was able to be like attach his name to it and that helped get to Sony pictures and they ended up putting independent film. Guys like destiny and fate own but this is real messed up. If you ever get to this we actually talked about it on the real but when he originally did an interview talking about the film He was like man. You know John Rules characters so incredible he was going on. Josh did a great job and they're like well. What do you think about The and what would you think about the chemistry between Vanessa Miles? Which was our characters any goes on. You know. I actually think What's her name? So he had edited the film. Watch me on screen for hours and hours. You know when you're editing a film you're watching it all the hours that it was put together. He didn't even know my name till this day. I'll show my kids that and be like your father didn't even know my name so anyway we ended up meeting. Because we're about to do the promo foreign the Promo run from and I was like. Oh Hi nice to meet you. Whatever we end up becoming friends Giada other guys that were in the film the other producers. We became kind of like a squad at that time. I had just gotten the real like like. I don't even think we were greenlee. Late Greenlee yet I had just gotten the call that we were going to go. But we shot the pilot right so I ended up moving to La. Because it's GONNA film here in L. A. and Israel had just moved as well to Santa Monica area. Oh and at that point the whole squad was now living in La and John was in and out of La nonstop so we would always hang out and do like these group activities. You know I love to throw a party. I'd feel like that's all I do is send you on text messages. The other day I went through our texted and I was like Damn I just be sending her flying like you. WanNa come party all GONNA come. I'll will show up so so I looked party paints at my house and just Taco Tuesday and I would invite them all to these things and Israel started showing up without the other guys. Just live here.

"I'm like this is so beautiful. And the fact that she's so attached to her culture and she loves it she's like my children are going to speak. Arabic. She's like this is how I wanNA raise them. One it's really smart. She saving a bunch of money and she's washy still wildly successful on. She saw there so family oriented There's so many things. The food is amazing. The fact that I've been calling Hamas and she's like right Houma so our she says it and she's like you know what actually was a breakfast food. I didn't know that was actually intended to be like a breakfast food. So there's so many things and they're just tiny things like that being able to shine a light on someone else's culture so dope and beautiful to me. Yeah because yeah. Because it's like it's like you said when we grew up from your same age group says there was such little representation even down to Barbie like all of it from the dolls to the it was like it was all blond hair blue eyes and for the longest time. I thought that was what beauty was. And how did we all did? Yeah that's what gets the body type exactly all of that and it brainwash as a child and so you grow up thinking. I don't look like this. I'm not as attractive as those players. So you know it's really a mind fuck and so that's why having people like you. Having people like Nas having you know we need the diversity of people needs to be elected. They sealed see themselves. It's so much deeper than it really. Is it really is it? Is I love that well props yet thank. You may try we try. I mean again I would love to see more Middle Eastern people on television it her and I are mixed to which is really cool. What makes with we're the same Mexica so our moms our sisters? Yeah what yeah. Yeah put together moms so. We're half let the Middle Eastern. Our dads are Persian and their best friends. Yes so don. Yeah so it's also interesting because then I also to people who are mixed there's also a lack of identification juice and because you're just like where do I belong one hundred. You're like you feel like you have to have don't I'm pure Latina? But I'm half Puerto Rican half Ecuadorian and I even get that if I post something with the Puerto Rican flag the Ecuadorians. I like what's up with all right? I'm going to Puerto Rican Day parade. I'm posting it for that reason. But you didn't go to the Ecuadorian. Exactly the comments. I guess and you never would've Ecuadorean flag the Puerto Rican side but I thought she was Puerto. Rico you do feel torn and what I love most is now married to a man that's also mixed as well see is and I'm married to a man. That's my husband's Jamaican French. So I say what is that next generation of Children. They are going to be race. Lewis which h-honestly as much as I. I love being proud of who? We are I think it's going to be really special. There's going to be this whole other generation of children that are just mix ally so many what are you. I'm human I'm Puerto Rican Ecuadorian A new like they're just going to be up. I wonder what that's going to do to racism. That's under yeah. We had these conversations on the real about you know Caucasian families feeling like While my grandchildren are going to be by Brown they're going to have brown babies. That was a real conversation. Sadly a real fear for some people. In how do you? How do you make that fear? Go Away educate them enough and introduce them to other cultures where they get excited about it instead of being afraid of it right right right. Who's going to take a lot of work? Yeah it is was it says. Orange for sure. It's keeping the blood line row absolutely set that gives the race pure and exact just being honest. That's almost in every race. Yeah so you can sit and be there. Oh they're prejudice against me. But I've heard the say I've heard Black People's effort I've served Asians be like no. You gotTA marry the. It's the reality of it and it's it's not right and I think at some point. We have to raise our kids and raise this next generation. We like we are the world. Changes are the ones that will make it different for me too. I'm so intrigued to see how this is all GonNa unfold. I low key used to feel like damn but my kids not going to identify as anything and I find so much pride in being a lot. I was sad about it right and then I was like not. That's dope like they like. I will world citizens so you you you know what I mean. That's the one thing that I will say about our parents that I wish they would have kept up the heritage a little bit more. Yeah a both our moms kind of like set aside the Latino culture a little bit more for our dads like I think that they accommodated them more and so it was more of a Middle Eastern type household but even still we were born and raised in America. So everything was very Americanized. Yeah we spoke English in the house so we kind of lost a little bit of that tradition because of our poor first generation. Here my our dads were born in Iran. Our moms were born here so that makes a difference too. Yeah totally totally but but it boils down to. What do you want your children to know and carry out you have to really instill that in them? Fight you on ultimately as much as I love the idea of raising my daughter to identify and and you know identify with Latin culture and be to obviously be mixed and recognize that but No the language and all of that when you really boil down to it. I want a child. That's kind I wanNA child that recognizes. Everybody like that to me is way more important than her being on some pride. S. You know what I'm saying so when you think about it in the grand scheme of things I'm like I want a child. That represents the change. I want to see in first and foremost you go real quick. Stop this Mike but I wish I could okay so much great conversations happening. Let's take a quick break and we'll come back and.

"Will lead you back saying that and we sang got to be there. There can't be any song. Michael Jackson the Jacksons old school site. So we did those two songs. Now here's the catch. He's like you gotTa meet me outside of Yankee Stadium. Okay we go to school in Manhattan for any New Yorkers listening. You know that the Bronx is not close. Yankee stadium is far so I ended up. I will never forget. I got my outfit from contemporary casual and it was these spandex highways black bell-bottoms like very selena is part of my hair on now come full circle. They're probably back. Yeah and it was like a little furry crop top like literally like a mood. Furry little thing in black and I used to wear the maybelline lipstick and It was called. It was called but it was like a cranberry dark colored lips and I remember parting my hair on the side and slicking it back in a bun and I thought I was going on this audition looking long. Got On the train went. All the way to Yankee Stadium got off and I called the dude from pay for them to have a cellphone then and he's like okay. I'm GonNa pull up to where you're at. We were you by yourself by myself. I recommend anyone doing bad idea. Mother hearing this story now is like are you out of your mind. She thinks I'm insane right but you got you're looking out. Thank you lord or watching after me because it could have been bad but it ended up being the best thing that happened to me right. I got he pulled up. In like what I remember now being like a Black Yukon or did not like one of those like big black's view and he told me get in the car and I I do and I waited for the other two girls. No and then they got in the car and we sat in the back of his car. He's like icing. Because before you go to the audition for this manager like I need to know that. You're not whack yeah. We sang a little song. He's like I cool I'm going to. I'm going to call you and tell you where to go for the official audition and I was like awesome. We got out the CAR. We got back on the train and life went on. Wow gave me an automation. I'm in the car yes it was. It was a full on on like a little bootleg very unsafe. Creepy style audition. Thank you Reggie for not violating in any way or kidnapping me. Ask Me Sing the song we got on the thing. I ended up going to this audition and it was four three. W wh that was it was the manager of Thrill W had also discovered CECE peniston minor league and they had managed Joe for like. I WanNa know those things and the manager at the time had a daughter. Well it was two women together a daughter Sister Anna. Mom does that make sense. Two sisters and one of the girls daughters wanted to be a singer so they were like. We're GONNA put the group together. It was Kelly and then it was me and other two girls. That auditioned ended up not making the group they picked me to be in the group which was crazy and I know he know what it was. You know when you know it. It was that moment. Yeah they it was the time of the Latin explosion. Ricky Martin had just done the grammy's Jennifer Lopez. It was shocking. I had just come out. Wherever whenever and it was this time for like Latinos. Were having a moment and she asked me. She's like I know they said you can sing in Spanish using Spanish and I sang the mark. Anthony Song Press Yasser and the other girl that was there. They were like do you. Do you WANNA sing something in Spanish too. And she goes BBC Bom bomb. And while I was like that's not my that's not my jam like don't really have anything to sink in that moment they were like we're going with this one. She has an audience that she can reach. You know she's authentic business and that's what it was in that moment. Preparation leads up exactly and I also recognize that me authentically being myself right and being and identifying not just being what the enough but identifying with the culture right was going to be what kept getting me chosen absolutely that makes us in court and it really has been the thread throughout my entire career. I was chosen for to be in. Disney's Cheetah girls because when they had parts in there that were like Spanish I was like riffing on it and really being a young girl. And they're like this is what we mean what we need and for the real. It's like you you looking for women of color that are diverse and speak. Well I am genuinely and authentically Latinos. Sorry I always tell young girls. Don't be afraid of what you really are like. I'm sure you guys as women of color as well like okay like I. Am this like whatever you are so proud of that and I was thinking. Nettle closed doors for you. I really do believe that it will open doors. I totally agree. And that's beautiful and we own the. Yeah but so. Speaking of the real. How long has that been on now? That's been on for a mini van together for seven years. Six seasons. Are Terry one thousand episodes? I Yeah I was like Damn. Why does it look? You feel like we've done a hundred thousand but at the same time when you just think of the fact that we've walked down those same stairs right jam into our little theme Song One thousand time. Yeah that's it's a big deal crazy down. I remember when it first came out. Felt like yesterday. Yeah you know I was working with Luba. You're one of my really freeing them. I was working with Luba. And that's when your show first came on and we were talking about. She's like Oh yeah. That's my really good friends on and we're like well we'll see how the show does like it will probably do well because it was just a new demographic it was you know women of all different ethnicities it will like. We're the only one that really a man. We got so much like slack for not just slack. Doubt like this will never work. People flat out told US. This show will never fly without a one zero. They were like you got to have a white girl like the fact that you don't have a white girl this is never gonna go. They're never gonNA pick up the show swearing and it was like. Why does it have to beat that? I mean it doesn't why can't it just be that we're just four strong personalities and as much as we talk about diversity and being women of color ultimately the goal is for everyone to watch the show and and almost halfway through be like? Oh I don't even see color anymore. He's just personalities that I liked that I relate to these are just women to unite. Yeah so that was the concept is you actually can have a show that you're not being specific about. We need the one girl to make this sell to make this get. Greenland obviously worked. Yeah so it's needed because you're always going to get that pushback pushback everything. Is this way everything you know. All these shows are white. All these things and it's worked for. Yeah. I'm elise tries something Mula for the first time. You're always going to get your way. So you guys just kept pushing. So was it hard to get the contract renewed or like was it tricky that after that first season so after the first season just being transparent when we first signed are deals there for longer than one year held and it's really their option decided they want to keep going got it and when we first found out we got beat up. We're like Oh my God. This is amazing. After the second or third year we ended up finding out. They started doing w pickups honest which is what we just got last November which was so excited to know. You know every time we still get nervous regardless when you're looking at the landscape of daytime these shows common goal. I crazy four thousand episode. We had ellen degeneres come on. I know sheep latte out with like if we listened to you all the talk shows that have come and gone in the last six or seven years right. You'd be like oh Dan that was a show on TV. Or I forgot that that even existed because they come and go so frequently That just the idea of it when we started getting like you're going for two years which we could Scott renewed again for two more years. Wow that's job security. Oh I'm so just I mean it was scary and you're like is this going to go. We don't know and during your summer of waiting to know like if you get pickup or not. You're just like twiddling. You're creating youtube channels and whatnot. You don't figuring out what else. What are my other options right We're always just so grateful every time we find out that it's got picked because it sends multiple messages. I always say the biggest message is that it's bigger than us. It's bigger than the four of us when you support a show like the real. You're not just saying oh I love Jeannie I love agent I love Lonnie. I love to marry. Love Amanda. You're supporting the fact that generations to come after us will be able to say. I know that can be daytime talk. Show us because I've seen myself represented in that exactly and more than just represented my like. I've seen that it can be done. And it's been success exactly. And that sends a message to networks that sends a message to programmers. That sends a message to sponsors. That's message the people in power with money that our audience is saying. This is what we want to see like. I think as as viewers. We sometimes think we don't have control of what we see. But we asked what you consume. You're you're making bigger decisions than you think when you support shows that you know. Maybe don't show diverse cast. You're also sending a message that like this is acceptable. Oh absolutely I think putting that message out there to our audience is one of the biggest messages. And we're just so excited that with our with getting renewal for the show. It says this is what we WANNA see. And that it's working. It is simply absolutely. That's amazing thing. A catalyst to that goes down in history when they told me. Oh you're the the real. And like my publicist ended up going out with With a media. I don't know what that's called. But you know when they send out their things and they're like the press press release the press release included the fact that I was the first thing I ever and daytime talk and I went to my publicist and my agents and I'm like they gotta take that out. That's not correct like that's like I don't think that's right there like I'm like thinking right now on all sweetie like that's absolutely correct And I was like well. No that doesn't make sense because then it was thinking. Leinna correct yes. That's you're the first one in English language and then I was like that. Just can't be right so I'm running through it. I even brought up like well Natalie. Morales is on the on the today. Show they're like that's morning. That's data different format. It's a news right show. We're not so then. You finally accepted. The fact and wallet was one of the greatest honors when you say like to not a catalyst of change and that sort of thing. It's such an honor at the same time. It was so sad like when I thought about it I was like damn this has been delayed for like I'm the first like now that can't be right. That's why you didn't believe it wrong. And then after that you started seeing more of it sunny got added to the view after that and there was a lot of seeing you started seeing more of that after and I was just like. That's amazing that's such a great and much-needed sewn we need to get a Middle Eastern girl up and that would be amazing. You know my my my best friend and who started out as assistance. She's now on my management team as long as Lana. She's half Iraqi and half for it and I feel like even hanging out with her and recognizing the similarities of our cultures being like you know in her being but there's also so many differences and there's so many things that no one has any idea of such a beautiful culture such a rich culture and sandy misunderstood wildly misunderstood and on top of that never representing though never known like it's just not represented at all. No we're just now starting to you know it's like okay. We're fighting for Latinos. We're fighting for black people writing Asians. It's like okay. We need to get the Middle Eastern. There is yes so i. We're always talking about that. And I even have on my on my youtube channel so much because crazy thing is anytime. I've posted her like I posted something with her And I ended up doing the caption in Arabic. I asked the translator Joe. My comment goes filled with airport with my. I had two straight up ever translated next to me but I realize I even had a huge audience of people who are like will maybe. She's the closest in look wise. And you know you know what I'm so glad you're an even. Lana was like Yo. When she originally we started our friendship and our working relationship she was a fan of mine. She was like in my mind. Like you look like the girls. You know 'cause like she's like you have tan skin. You look very similar to some of the girls like too Glam. You'd like to do makeup and very similar to hurt culture and were her cousins instead. Yeah and so I just try to even put her on as much as possible because I think the culture is so dope. She still lives with her parents. And they're very Almost like very traditional Ri- Middle Eastern culture very traditional Arabic family They only speak Arabic at home right so her parents are. I guess. She's first generation here right She still lives with her parents. That would be her ideal until she gets married. What severe that in their culture in Middle Eastern culture. The parents literally get offended. No she told me that they don't understand like if you're not married wire living somewhere else. Yeah why are you leaving me like this and I'm not GonNa lie to you? At first I was like why are little Glam squad we would may. We'd be like damn you don't live by yourself and as I've gotten to get to know her and I like spend time in her pants and her parents house in her house..

I could kill a Bald Eagle and I could buy land on a reservation. Were killing a Bald Eagle.

I love love doing music Not Professionally but I love it on like a passion level arrive passionate about but I think it's the most competitive field and it's like the music industry recognizes not so much about your love for music but like what's your marketing and what's your single at work and who are you as an artist. I'm like I'm just me? I enjoy seeing the shower. I loved doing mass singer. Oh was it was an awesome way to like be able to do what I love without being like harshly criticized for.

Your ego gets in the way you're like I I want be the one you know answering the questions and you had to check that one hundred percent and a one of our executive producer is one sent to be said to me after she casted the real and she was like. You don't get it. We saw every woman of Color in Hollywood. And then some and he's was like it takes real talent to be able to be yourself when the cameras come on like they're like people have red light syndrome. Have you heard of that? Yes like the red light comes on and they know they're being reported in there like Hello. It's pleasure to meet. Ya and they suddenly. I kinda was like that in the beginning because I have a big personality but then when the cameras in front of me and then you get used to it. Yeah yeah they're like Yo that's A. That's a gift a gift to be able to connect with people. It's a gift to be able to be vulnerable to be transparent conversation so now I'm like oh I get it like and I'm so grateful for the platform that I have now but it wasn't something that like I sought after phrase came to you. Yeah like you need to be doing this. Thank you Lord. It's now it's all a part of the journey. All of nine had not taken those opportunities who knows what I mean. Yeah because you you were kind of like on the sidelines for like a little bit for sure but what was happening with you during that time so I after Cheetah girls literally while I was still touring with them I ended up going to New York and taking a meeting with L. A. Read and he signed me to island def jam so literally coming off of the tour. I had a record deal at island def jam which was Super Dope and I now is going to be hosting the hours that were where. Trl used to be right so they had just Tiara had just gone away and they hired me on an awesome guy named God lost Santos host afternoon hours on MTV and it was just afternoons on. We literally would toss to room raiders and all those shows like finger so we just would host the afternoon. And that's kind of what I was doing and then my la read ended up leaving Def Jam and my project got shelved and I had to ask to be released. It was like. Can You please let me go? Because I was just stuck there. He had moved from there to go to epic. And when your main cheerleader? The person that signed you at the label anymore. It's a wrap. No one's paying attention to you. The music is just sitting there and they want who they brought to the to exactly eggs and if you didn't sign the act you're not excited about it because you don't get to claim of course so there was really no one there for me and I was just like okay. Well I'm going to go now And that's when I was kind of in limbo so I no longer was on. Mtv that run had ended And now it was just. Oh that's a lie. I then this is so random I then got a development deal with NBC universal. And they were priming me again to do like a talk show Now I was other fun thing to Google. I was now like being like a guest on Maury Povich. Yes and I would come. Yes we miss this. Yes I would do all of the episodes that were like feel good like kids. Being bullied and like more CH- younger audience oriented. Like I need a makeover. I WANNA be a sexy girl like and the parents being close on so I wouldn't be there for that and the other one was bullying and I'd be like to have a feel like your daughter. Just isn't gonNA come home today. It was very dramatic and very deep. That's where you're out came in. And so then I did tubing that when I got home. It was so random and awkward so in that me and my one of my best these. Ju- Lisa ended up doing a reality show. Yes higher girls and then straight out from empire girls. I got the real. Wow so that was like my limbaugh area was like I'm coming out with an album. Album was never coming out and then it was like just doing random things like people. Were seeing me randomly on Maury or and not really understanding what the idea was behind the scenes and it was to hopefully land a talk show right and then they're like hey we're casting a talk show for you know minority women or women of color and I was like amazing right here. We'll you're my personal goals because that's on my dream board. I added. That is shy because this show has sparked something in me that I didn't know that I could do or have and it's like and same thing with like your whole all things Adrian. It's so inspiring. Because you do everything and everything you do. I'm like Yes yes like. I love everything you do in your personal taste. It's like yeah you from the day I met you. I was like has so much personality and you could do it. And even when we were coming up with the concept for my youtube channel was like well. What kind of youtube is it going to be? Are you going to be cooking? No Am I gonNA specifically just be doing house. No is it just make all right and I was like all then. I'm sure you get this all the time. That like women are not one dimensional exact like we have so many layers to us. It's not like oh now. I'm just doing podcasts. Or I just do music right just to make up right you know. We have so many layers to us. And when you're an entrepreneur now in this day and age. Multiple streams of income are just three sixty. Yes absolutely not how it used to be ten years ago. We had to pick one thing and you had to stick with that one thing and people would even tell you you have to stick with it because that's how you want your audience. They need to either take you. You need to be like an expert of something. It has to be that this is what you do. Oh hone in on that now. It doesn't have to be that way anymore. Put you in. That bothered everything more like we're out of the bar and I love to know I do too so when you were in your limbo period. Yeah did you ever feel discouraged? I'll hell yeah. Maybe industry isn't me like did you ever feel that way absolutely and more than just feeling discouraging? I had like a very real mom. Who's very lengthy? I wasn't alone like mummy. Listen so me and your sister both work at Cornell I can get you a job here and she really did offer that to me and I was like yes but nobody. I hadn't given up on the dream yet and at that point that was all I knew I only knew the entertainment business because I got into it at fourteen years old. Like I get my worker's permit to be in the studio singing right. How did that come about how the all wheel? W THE STRANGEST. I relocated here L. Yes so when I was in junior high school I went to a performing arts school. Random fag the Wayne's brothers went there and so two Jerry O'CONNELL Clinton School for Writers and artists in Chelsea and It pretty much a junior high school that prepared you to put your portfolio together to go after one of the big talent schools like juilliard or the other one that is completely escaping. My mind was that other one Juilliard and I'm bad at whatever those schools. That are huge dipping. Nicki Menaj went to those schools. Anyway but I was. I was like a a poor kid like we didn't I lived in the projects. We didn't have money to put like headshots together and really do the portfolio. So I went to the school and ultimately did not audition for those schools because I had not put my portfolio together. I didn't get the headshots. I never got the demo cut on me for studio time so I ultimately was like you know what my sister is in high school. When I was coming in as a freshman she would be a senior. She's three years older than me and that just seemed like a very ideal situation. You know what I mean like. I'm GONNA come through and I'm going to be hanging out with the seniors. I'll be looked after and it was a medical high school that she went to it. Was the medical school for Stuyvesant stuyvesant building in New York City. It was health professions and human services was high. School was the name of the school and literally I was like. Maybe I'll just sing babies out of the womb. I'll be an obstetrician like because you have to understand when you come from that sort of world guys grew up in La right that's La and even though New York is like you make. You can make it anywhere. I had no connection to the entertainment business. I didn't even know like how this works. We gotTa have a famous celebrity parent like I just had no connect so I was like this isn't real. It's not realistic for me at all..

You're going to really sit there and tell those people. Can you make your baby stop crying? No you. Can you just have to shut up and deal with it because I mean? Do they bark much? Here's this is. This is the thing that I'm like do they. Because we have double pane windows because the the where we layer the airplanes fly directly above so they put in Double Pane Right. You can't really hear outside and the dog's bark when they hear shit outside so they do bark on occasion like if somebody's really close and they're walking by they'll alert us and stuff but also like we're not usually both of us out during the week late at night where it's like unreasonable hours for him to be upset about right here. It's like during the day or on the weekend or whatever you know and it's like I mean I don't know what to do I don't know what to do about it. Like problematic neighbors. No it's yeah but then okay so then on top of that so then he complained about that. And we're like whatever like well so what I've been doing is I've been leaving youtube on for the dogs when I leave that. It's like fifteen hours of relaxing music for your dog and allowed. I don't know I'm not home. I WANNA get a camera but he. I put the music. Oh Yeah I put it really loud so that if there's any outside noise they can't hear it they just hear the music so it out but then this dude frigging. We don't even use our grill. Ever we have a little patio grill. The one time ALLEN COMES OVER OMARSKA INTO GRILL. He's grilling and the guy comes over and complains that the smoke is getting into his apartment. Mind you double pane windows. Okay all we have is a screen door in the front. If the smoke is getting in your frigging house. Just close your stupid window like it's not that hard. He's closys aware other people live exactly right. So that's already. He came complained. Almost like what do you want me to do? Like I never grill like it's temporary. It's not GonNa last like just close your window like I don't know what to tell you and it goes like I'm not trying to be a dick and we're like. Yeah well you are. So he left. Went Back to the house. He calls the cops on us. The cops come the next day. I can't even face literally exactly the COPS COME OVER. Omar sitting in the living room. He sees like heads bobbing through the patio. And he's like what's happening goes others can help you and they're cops and he's like does this have to do with the neighbor to the neighbor call He.

"This this is Adrian ballot who is running for Congress in the Texas Fourteenth District Hadrian. Hi there I am privileged to be able to join you today. Thank you so much for having haven't been back on the show. Yeah so it's been a quite a while now since we last talked. So could we start by just sort of a refresher of your background. Antony and while you're running for Congress well I am a forthright schoolteacher engines In in the largest school district. That's in Texas and I have a background as a community organizer as well. I worked at engineer. But I've had a pretty very background and now once I became a community organizer working on a prisoner bombs reelection campaign that set a fire off in need to really start working more community in organizing. Because I saw the power our organizers I saw the power of the people and so I'm running for Congress in Texas fourteen because the seat that is now being occupied by hi Someone else would be. It's not serving the people and so we're running to take back that scene for the people and so let's talk then about this district. I think if people haven't seen a map of his district today should look it is quarter so it's Somehow wraps around the city Houston and goes over some water. Can you talk a little bit about About the fourteenth district. Well it is outside of the citizens in two thousand four four hundred square mile and it is about eighty five percent rule in about fourteen percent urban so it encompasses Galveston County Jefferson County and parts of Zoya Account and it is a gerrymandered district as you know Texas. There's the seventh gerrymandered state in the country and it is an area that is fool of hardworking people. And it's one thing I really like about. Ah The district that contains a lot of city and a lot of sitting at a lot of different personality and that makes up the district and a lot of small towns. And it's more of you go into different cities such as Beaumont articulacy a freeport if their hometown field so people grew up there People you feel them where they grew up and it's small town feeling. I love that because it's community so as you're going around and talking to people in the district picked. What are the issues that they're really focused on one of the things that keep coming up for them education coming up having our quality public education Healthcare is a big issue because there are a lot of senior the veterans they are people who need Affordable housing within this area was very hard hit by Hurricane Harvey which you know a couple of years ago but the reconstruction of the rebuilding of infrastructure. It's still lacking and so you have a lot of people that are concerned about clean air clean water and making sure that we have good job and you ran in in twenty eighteen as well. What are some things you know dude? Are there lessons that you learned the first time around things that you're sort of taking with you now in in in this run it got no in twenty twenty. Well let me tell you. Texas the big old state and districts are pretty large and argo ago was to talk.
"adrienne" Discussed on Living Legacy Leadership
"Very cool well and I understand. You went to Columbia University. I'm I get my bachelors. There too good well did we. Did we cross paths. I don't know I was there Seventy six to eighty one. John was doing other things along with studying. Oh Okay I was a little bit later than that. I was in the first class where they accepted. Women which was nineteen. Eighty eight was the graduating year Ha very good. Yeah and you know one of the things you said about being going off to college which happened to be at Columbia was that you're able to create a whole new identity for yourself. So how did you go about doing that. And what what what what did you want to create by design for yourself at that point. Well I think once again I think I wanted to. I'm not sure that it's entirely impossible to create a new identity for yourself I I went to college realizing or you know with this tension that I experienced experienced throughout my life this push and pull and and tugging from my mother and the needing to break free of it and understand myself and and so I was able to break free a little bit in college but you know inevitably I would get swept back into this sort of vortex of her. You know the the drama surrounding her affair and it really. It took me a lot of years beyond My college years too and frankly a real crash in my life a period of time where I became very depressed and and to sort of dig my way out and really sit with what had happened. Understand it you know. Go through the work which includes therapy and and you know talking about it once. Her secret came out I was able to talk to friends about it. And also that the third thing that really helped me in terms of I kind of reclaiming of my life was becoming. Ming is involved in literature as I became both professionally but personally I became a huge reader relatively late in life. I wasn't one of the kids who had a flashlight under the blanket. I started reading in a very earnest way in my mid twenties but that You know I find reading to be one of the most empathetic acts of all things because of course you in the process you are putting yourself into the world's that are created by these authors the heads of other characters and you're watching how different people navigate situations and and so when you read a book about the civil war or You know feminine in another country you really are tossing yourself into a whole different world and I think that was very important for me to see protagonist getting out of difficult situations and and I didn't even really realize the step that it was having inside meter to sort of shift my focus to think that I could get get out of situations to well. It does seem that was part of the modus operandi of your your stepmother when she presented some of those books and stories to to you it just now. I A huge debt of her. She really helped me more than the more than she'll ever know amazing so I'll tell us that obviously that that must have had such an impact that you've gone into a career in the whole literary world and very high acclaim and in everything. You seem to do so okay. Tell us about Aspen words. I would be happy to Aspen. Word is a wonderful literally nonprofit that has all sorts of programs ranging from a fantastic summer writing workshop which is called Aspen summer words and that is A conference where we have you know probably ten different teaching faculty come wonderful writers and fiction memoir poetry and other things and students Emerging writing fellows but you know any any aspiring writer can apply and join. And it's just a wonderful wonderful wonderful time and place to you. Know take take a bit of space for yourself to become a writer and to learn from Masters we we have a residency program where established writers can can spend some time in a beautiful spot in the mountains writing. We have a winter words program which is an author speaking series in the winter where the sort of literary luminaries of any year come and talk and we also award a wonderful prize. That was just started three years ago called the Aspen Words Literary Prize and that awards a work of fiction that shines a spotlight on social issues so that might be immigration or women's issues are violence or you know it can be it can. Ah there's many as many issues as we have. So the past winners have been Kra Jones than American marriage which was last year's winner the inaugural one went to most at Hamad for exit west. Wow I mean from both sides where you work with under representative initiative writers with helping people discover their voices on the sort of front end of it and then giving people the claim for like you said fiction but still talking about actual current or past social issues and how to work your way through those that it's just amazing and how powerful and impactful is that. So thank you for doing that. Thank you So we're getting a little closer towards the end of war will be wrapping doc. But you know you you mentioned in the book That and maybe it was in reference to your mom and it could have been a reference to yourself that that lonely lonely feeling comes from not being known in. You've now put yourself fully in the public spotlight kind of an expose with this book. which as you said had come out into the open and so you were finally able to talk about it without feeling guilt Hopefully How's it been for? Are you to to be so public about all this that you held so close for so long. Well it's it has been something you have you you have hit the nail on the head it is. It is not easy even when you believe in the importance of sharing your story to you know it's it's just such a very different skill set to write a book then to go out and chat about it So it's been a learning process for me. I'm very glad I did it. I think think I've been able you know one of the unexpected outcomes is being able to help other people. I always when I was writing this. Obviously I thought it was a very singular quirky personal story but what I've understood upon releasing the book is that You know many of the themes are a universal. We all have mothers. This this idea of there being an family legacies or things that we want to put an end into our things that a lot of readers can relate to of how secrets keep us from being known and how traumatizing they are to our developing psyche. So it's been a really beautiful experience to to talk with readers to hear their stories and I think you know the essential the essential piece of this and again this bit how to do with my own family and my own children. Is that what you don't heal from. And I think you know by healing I mean talking talking about and and coming to terms with you know you risk transmitting and passing on and just repeating the same mistake so overall with with some mm bumps along the way it has been an incredible experience to share with the world. Well well and that fits in with one of the quotes you had towards the end of the story story from Kirkegaard that life can only be understood. Backwards must be lived forwards. I love that quote. Vote for sure so so aside from Aspen words. Is there anything else on your your radar. Turns moving forward for you moving forward for me now. I love my job with Aspen words. I hope to continue writing. I have an idea but it's just a germ of an idea for a novel that I'd like to work alum Alan and the next year or so and obviously I'll be promoting this book into the New Year and hope that people will continue wanting wanting to read it and talk about it and share their stories and.

Ah I ended up in a comedy club because a buddy of mine was trying to get me to do comedy. I didn't know what it was like rope without cable so I was not. I didn't know what stand up was a weird says like eight years ago and I ended up meeting eating a dude who I have since married and I'm now divorcing but On our first date he took me to a comedy club and we smoked weed in the back in the alley and I got popped. I mean I'm from Florida. I've been throwing a cup eleven times for this. I didn't think it was going to be a thing. That's on the state flag right. It's like a guy getting a someone being put a topless woman being putting the police police cruiser. That's actually outline of me from a seven as being seventeen year old residuals on the flag. So it's a public park where there's children present so they He was training a rookie cop so he had to. He had to me. It's all. Yeah so then. I didn't go to Grad school and I ended up staying and then I'm dating him him and now that we're getting divorced. I can honestly say like I fell in love with stand up comedy and it was like symbiotic with him because it was he was teaching me. What it it was just ended that relationship sooner? I this is not all the same thing. But that's like I've only been camping a couple couple of times and I've only done a couple of times in their bolt. They're the same. Can't be trump's camping or do I love shrimps like I don't know it's. It's a symbiotic relationship server. I Yeah I started doing comedy by myself and he became like an instagram character. So stand up his mind now so yes yes and and you cannot lose that you don't have to give up half of that now. No one can take that they have way more material now material way more time F-. Yeah while I'm sorry to hear about. I mean. We talked about this off my exit goes. I feel like for the listeners. Just never you're not gonNA go through divorce I'm like So talk let me casually mention that. I'm a human an empathetic human. It's cool I'm cool about it. Yeah you are cool. UH-HUH I I am a person who is like dangerously forthcoming. And I appreciate that in you like your instagram stories of just like this is the shit. I'm fucking going through right now. It's just so odd like it's empowering even for me to see if I can't eat it it like it'd be so painful for me to not be able to express myself through my art right and also you're not like it's not like you are having a mental breakdown on whether you are not for me to decide we're not laughing at you falling apart right. Yeah you're not like Randy Quaid right right. I'm just going through it. It's like the separation is. It's the annoying nece annoyance of separating. Are things like at the base level beyond like the heart and all that Shit. It's a logistical nightmare. It's a logistical nightmare. And that's what I'm focusing right now because I'm moving like I said I'm having people come to my home and buy things things for like you know. I bought this desk for one hundred thirty dollars. I'll give you forty okay. Fine you let me carry it to my car. Find Out of my apartment and I'll find yes like just fresh start. It had to do everything he cherry picked his shit and dipped after I caught him. He's he was cheating like fucking crazy so I mean. Does it instagram fame. It just gets is to you. Know goes to people's heads. Whatever good riddance? I'm you're GONNA be much better off than they find you know can't call me fat and get away with it so yeah thank you for the heads. I'm sorry I called you fat when you walked into thought it was like a black people can say the n word fat I can call the. Hey we just meeting at Bursa But one of the big things that's going on in cannabis right now is like this You call it vape gay. Yeah Yeah we're like this. The pendulum is swung back the other way on rape because there are some dangers to the Shitty Shitty to the non legal vapes. Because that's what I keep telling people come to me a lot for like we'd questions as they but I'm not as informed. I'm more of like a stone. Or who knows what he likes. I'd surpass my wine knowledge with weed but I have not like it's it's not caught up to like my level of knowledge of movies and stuff so when people are like. So what's the deal with there's a difference between being like a cavalier like solemnly Sean who understands understands turbines and things like that somebody understands compliance and illegalities big difference now that the world is. I cracked open. It's just like Like like the cannabis world is now so it's just as disparate as like IPA's or wine now it's so huge but there's there's like this report or whatever that vapes are behind or the cause of several deaths in the last couple years and when people come to me and talk about that. I always say like I'm not a real vapor anyway because the reason I started smoking dope was like because it was natural and it wasn't like it was from the Earth Sorta felt real and then when I started getting into like dabs invade but Mike am I getting away. From the reason I got into grass flower of But I would always I always say like I think that's doesn't go for like the legal live. Resin of like a high end company is not going to kill you and correct the problem. Here is the illicit illegal unlicensed unregulated market which has been formerly known as the black market. But we're not going to give them that kind of power when you say black market market. You imply that there's a white market and that's not what we're saying here there's disparity and we most of us who lived in the shadows on the black market for most of our cannabis careers before coming into the light and nobody wants to go back to those days. So it's on unlicensed unregulated because the people who are making positive effective change are those who are following the rules and paying their taxes right so what these illnesses are being caused by is Additives that are thickening. Agents in these vapes oh vitamin E acetate. He's been the one that they've singled out for this right now. So that's in e cigarettes that's in cannabis vaporizer batteries. There's also a couple of them are leaking lead from their cartridges because they're from factories in China again or not being tested vetted through like a can of safe is our favorite Testing facility to go through the great their their local and they can say approved or it's been checked often. Yeah you could definitely confident. We working with them at my shop to make sure that like we randomly tested did all the vapes in our shop. And if anybody Didn't submit for vitamin E acetate testing later on our shelves. So cool kind of like strong-armed everyone into doing that and like I'd say. Furthermore got the machinery necessary to implement those testing standards. Oh daily they made that happen so fast. Yeah I the advice I gave my my Just say friends to keep their device again. My friend was there like how do I know I'm like if you're pod is twenty dollars. It's it's going to tell you Ardi get down. It's going to kill you so I mean I'm like a high quality concentrate. That has no additives. That is a gram or half. Graham is going to cost you money like if you want. Some numbers Dank vapes something like that that is a testing at about twenty percent. THC and thirty five percent vitamin E ACETATE. Jesus wasn't even that Dank vapes ooh which is just a brand that anyone can slap their fake shit on on the Ellen license market ship it back to their home. He's he's and yeah. That's what I found when I was back back. East New York. A lot of my my old grass hookups are now also selling like I'm I'm like Oh can you bring. Can you come through with an eighth. And they're like yet you aren't vapes or edibles too and I'm like Oh take a look and then they show up on Mike unrecognizable brand of of Edibles often like reminds me of like like twenty ten l. a. edibles like someone just made this wrapped it up and then yeah no idea how many gloves it's like the right dosage and then the vape pens all they were like it's a jewel pod but it's got see it. I'm like wait a minute. Don't trust at yeah we did. A candidate did a random sampling of fifteen Illicit vapes and they've found and Fifty Times the amount of Michael Beautiful allowed. which is it's A? It's a pesticide. It's in like Neem oil and when unheated up turns into hydrogen cyanide. A very tiny amount point two parts per million. It's considered safe but once it's concentrated in these forms and Nisa illegal substances. It's fifty times the legal limit Piper. Onell you talk sides another one. That's fog bombs twenty six times. The legal limit found in those. So Jesus you literally not just vitamin E acetate details at this point like the additives. Pesticides that you're inhaling or just because there's no testing done on this shit there's no certificates of analysis there's manifest. There's no company being held accountable. There's no taxes is being paid. Interests are.

Building Better Marketing Automation Through WordPress With Adrian Tobey
"Everybody everybody welcome to another episode of how I built it the podcast that asks how did you build that today my guest is Adrian Toby the CEO of Groundhog Inc Adrienne. How are you today. I'm doing great Joe and first of all. Thank you so much for having me. It's a I've listened to your show before it's great to be on and I'm you know it's great. What you do Sharon the Sharon you know how he built it so I'm so excited and and want you lead the way awesome. Thank you so much for those kind words. I really appreciate that. It's it's sometimes I feel like I'm yelling into the void on the podcast but hearing a lot of feedback when I go to work camps and stuff like that and us. It's always nice to hear people do listen unappreciated cool so let's talk about your product groundhog and let's get into who you are and and what you do. I I I do want to ask you though I didn't ask us in the pre show and you don't have to answer it because you know some people might think it's true but you look pretty young like a young guy or do you just take hey cary twenty two okay so yeah. You're you're young guy. CEO of a company and it looks like it's doing you know pretty well. You have a really cool product as we'll learn so I just wanted to to get that out there like I i. I'm really bad at telling age but I may be in my infinite wisdom in my thirty th year I can. I can tell now Matt so awesome. Let's start with who you are and what you do yeah absolutely so my name is Adrian. I've been in the digital marketing marketing and email marketing industry for quite some time. I may only be twenty two but I've been in for about seven years. I went to university here in Toronto the University of Toronto for Computer Science for about about three years until I dropped out to focus my efforts. in the wordpress communities so used to be a certified partner for a company called infusion soft. If you're not familiar with infusion soft they have many similar competitors out there that you've likely heard of mail chimp get response tough spot active campaign in pain for example. All of those are the same vein they'll do marketing automation as a service and I was a certified partner in that community for about five years and in that time I built several wordpress plug ins catering to people who used those tools to integrate those tools with wordpress a little bit easier until finally is took all of that knowledge that I've learned being in that industry and building wordpress plug ins to build a wordpress competitor for for those that people would be able to just install them their website and that's what we're going to talk a little bit about today yeah so so already there are a lot of really interesting the things you just mentioned there first of all first of all so you have been doing digital marketing and e mail for about seven years. If I do my math straight we probably got started in our professions at the same time right when I was twenty two. I was like I'm doing this for almost a decade and people like that's insane. I don't like it's true and you also did computer science at the University of Toronto for three years before dropping out. What led you like what so I I mean you said you wanted to focus your efforts in the work space and on development and things like that but what was like the ultimate decision because when I went to college like I I did my master's the program to double the amount of years of college and and I think that at no point in nat journey I would have been like I got a job out of college. So what what was the thing that leads you to do that. Well so as I was going to university. I was is also working part time in a digital marketing agency which is as I was saying. I have that seven years experience in the in the in the industry but I was doubling up that time at the same time doing going through university so I was doing that full time and then doing school in the nights part time and I just found as going through I wasn't getting the amount of value that I wanted wanted for my dollar spent from from university that I was getting kind of just learning as I go through the through the agency through the industry and going to to conferences and all of that superbowl stuff so at one point and my last year of university I started to develop my first wordpress plugin which is called form left forearm lift currently has about thousand users and makes modest passive revenue for my current company and it is a form builder specifically for the CRM in marketing automation tool infusion soft so what people can do as a can essentially installed this plug in on their site and they can import their forms directly from their Sierra after going through the authentication process they can import it directly then use a short code to pasted on their website otherwise without form left you'd have to do like the send this code to your developers so they can follow it on your website type deal right which is not the best user experience but that's what I built and I was really really focused on on making not the best that it could be in my last year in my third year of university so much so that I kind of neglected some of my university responsibilities because I was looking at I was kind of looking looking at the the user count is at one hundred it's at two hundred south three hundred you know this actually like really be something maybe that would be super cool and I was all excited about it and it was just a you know studying for my three to one class exam was just so much less sexy then then bend then bumping up the user counts so at the end of the third year. That was the first time ever failed course ever. I failed to sixty three which is one of the the class where you learn a lot about optimization runtime and all of that good stuff and I failed that of course is the first ever failed in my entire highlife and that was basically at that point. I'm like well. You know obviously if I failed the course you know I'm not really in. It and I'm spending all this money. Tuition at U. Of T. is not an expensive so so I'm like well. You know what I've learned a whole lot from this whole wordpress plugin adventure and the digital marketing and I honestly if I put the same amount of effort into something the thing that's kind of like its own business doesn't rely on any others then maybe I could actually grow something relatively quickly that would help up a significant amount of people rather than just spending all that time and energy sitting in a classroom somewhere at nine o'clock at night. I mean absolutely that makes perfect century. I think the the divergence our journeys was that I was self employed through college and I went to I got my masters in part art because it would it would help me stay in school while also building the business before I went into the quote unquote real world and so I was teaching I got a I got an assistantship for the master so it didn't cost me any money Um so I was getting free education building my business and getting paid which was really nice. I do have one. It's one question about the education like the higher education system in Canada though it sounds like it is very similar to the United States. It's like there's go ahead. Yeah the the only the only difference is that you call everything college and we we we have a very distinct line in between college and what we call a university college is very much focused towards the actual practicality of the workspace traits. It's journalism event

I just can't help what myself a twitter war between popeye's and chick-fil-a is made some people just as bad as wet hands okay now. That's off my chest seriously. If you haven't heard about this twitter award. Let me get you caught up on august twelve popeye's debuted a new chicken sandwich called simply the sandwich. It was the fast food chains biggest launch of a new menu a new item in thirty years and as many observers have noted popeye's chicken sandwich seemed an awful lot like chick fil a.'s classic delicacy crunchy batter fried chicken pickles and spicy or bland mayonnaise squished you know brioche bun to some it was outright fast food plagiarism and two others. The popeye sandwich was just <hes> finger licking good on twitter one. This jato tweeted popeye's spicy chicken. Sandwich is the best thing i've ever had in my entire life. Clearly that couldn't stand not if you're chick-fil-a in a very mild case of poultry peak aac chick-fil-a reminded the twitter verse which fast food chain rightfully owns the chicken sandwiches storied legacy. The company posted a math problem bun plus. The chicken plus pickles equals all the love for the original. Get it you saw it here. First chick-fil-a wanted to remind everyone politely of course since since chick-fil-a must protect its reputation for stellar customer service it wouldn't do to be snarky well as twitter wars do this one blew up feeling thing henpecked twitter's had to respond and they did in huge flocks so popeye's which originated in louisiana and is now headquartered in florida fought back with just two carefully chosen southern words words which in other circumstances could inside a schoolyard brawl over a re tweet of chick-fil-a fillets math problem popeye's asked y'all good and with that as buzzfeed wrote the gauntlet was thrown twitter became a buzz as it is wont to do and for a few minutes there the heat was not about political fights but about who makes the best fried chicken sandwich naturally lesser chicken sandwich sellers wendy's shake shack rush to join the fight and every poultry player benefited gaining likes re tweets and followers but none more so ban popeye's which picked up twenty five thousand new followers in just a few days c._n._b._c. reported in the real world popeye's was loving this twitter war and the sales it spurred knowing that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Some customers tried to sell their sandwiches for hundreds of dollars. The washington post reported popeye's ran out of chicken sandwiches in some locations and began warning that they could soon become as scarce as hen's teeth then had happened. They ran out store by store and they had to post handwritten signs on their windows. Telling anxious diners that there were no more of the sandwiches by august twenty six six just fourteen days after launch there was nary a popeye sandwich to be found from coast to coast and that of course spark yet more tweets by customers clucking clucking their disapproval to that popeye's tweeted it will soon bring back the sandwich permanently this time now this being twitter in two thousand nineteen the controversy he did spark a lot of serious discussion and a superbly written piece in vox about the health of factory farmed poultry the labor conditions on those farms and in fast food restaurants and the exhaustion of popeye's workers toiling sixty hours a week because of our love of batter fried birds and it spawned a lot of other political talk to along with discussion about the racial racial differences in the markets for chick-fil-a popeye's but we won't get any of that here instead for the final say or we should call it the final cluck perhaps we'll turn to food writer and soul food scholar adrienne miller who says i thought it was a very fun food fight and nothing deeper than that although like the thousands on twitter miller miller couldn't resist weighing in i've had both sandwiches. He says and i give a slight nod to popeye's from what i've read. This is business wars daily. Now we cannot resist which sandwiches your favorite tweet us business wars. We really want to know hey.

Your. Dad, I factory said on the road rules, like change the cable from the modem to the router..
