"Playing Greystone Athena cartoonist and playing Vanni. Bar Is Parveen car on manifest. They update US ON THEIR CHARACTERS Minus depressed because she had her. PTSD. It's a direct. Sorry. It's a direct pickup from. The cliffhanger at the end of season. One. We picked straight up from there like same clothing even your same day. It's the same day. Still recovering from what she went through in episode fourteen season one where she's Like held hostage and has had a gun pointed at her face and I think the last couple of episodes in season one, she just was really at a breaking point So that's where we pick up a SAMBA you. I mean as direct copy that was pretty quickly skip ahead. A little bit, and so grace's a little more pregnant. We learn in that for CEPA assode who the DAD is. Obviously I'm not going to divulge that now but it's actually it's really the way they the way we learn it is very interesting and surprising. So like even I was surprised when I read it, what are you both like most about your character I like most about her she's definitely smarter than I am. Which is nice. She's better at math. Really Nice. I don't it just like how just determine like she just wants to figure it out you know and I really. Appreciate that about her. She's definitely a workaholic. She has the type of work ethic that we can all kind of dream of having hence why she's gotten so far in her field you know. Why I think That's my favorite thing about her like she's definitely a hustler and she's GonNa and we'll see in season two like she'll go to any length to figure it out and if that. Manifests in her doing some really questionable things like she's she's about it. Yes. She's about it whereas Sunday's character. Yeah. I. Texted her the day after I'd rather race inscriptions. Ear. grace's really unflappable and she's much more patient and she's like the archetypal mother like she bakes cookies and she's But she's a really like patient and loving and understanding. She's everyone's rock and I would like a little more of that my life I'm a bit of a hothead and like. You. Know I can be want patients. Sometimes I need to channel my integrase. Try. I'm not quite as graceful grace about new themes or even tones sees it's definitely darker to lock arms. And I feel like it's a lot less about the first season was really about. managing relationships, and how this crazy event has thrown everyone into a tailspin as far as relationships. Wise. Yeah. And everyone kind of recovering from that and I feel like season two is really about. The death date and I mean a lot of it is really trying to. I would say that's the overarching thing and really trying to overcome that and trying to beat it really beat beat death fruit just basically more confused. But it's very there a lot a lot how it's been hard challenging for us today because there's so many things that happened in season two and we don't WANNA real reveal any of them because they're all spoilers and it's all very exciting and it's all very huge in you know even a small detail the revolutionary say. Then, you realize no wait. Yeah. Yeah. So we've all we've all been very cautiously biting tongues today, but what happens in season two and as far as the mystery goes like a lot of. Other. Questions open out and like new things unfold the don't necessarily you know. Close any doors as far as resolution of like Oh. That's the answer to the S. it's just like we'll wait more questions more questions. Look for manifest on NBC check your listings.
The Meal Prep
"Hey everyone. It's me Lisa. Lillian also known as hungry girl I am here for another episode of Chew. The right thing with my good pals and Co workers and BFF's Mikey and Jamie Hey guys. Hello Lisa, how are you? Good. We missed you last week and we missed you last week. I mean. By we I mean me. Yeah, we were podcast last week. We had a busy crazy week. And we took a little time off I. Hope People Forgave US was anybody said Did, they even notice Regina Regina might have been sad. All Sir number. One. Fan Regina's GonNa love that shout but I'm really happy to be back. I have to say like this week's episode is so good. It's one of those episodes that we have been toying around with for a while and the requests for have just been pouring pouring pouring pouring in. So this is I like to call it the meal prep assode get it. Because it's a meal prep episode so it's the meal prep assode. And meal prepping is so hot right now and we are going to dive into. So much of what people can do to make their lives easier were answering fan questions. Is it weird to call them fans? No. It's all right. We're friends and FRENEMIES. From our hungry girl peeps and I am super excited. Are you like I know you're a big meal pepper? Yeah, I'm excited Oh good Mike you. I'm the meal prep or the family for the most part but what do you do like just like lineup jars of peanut butter is that how you meal prep much that's about. Ninety eight percent of the work is July up the jars. And the rest is knives. You have the smaller I the bigger nine for the chunky peanut butter I know. Exactly All Right Mike. I'm sorry I'm sorry for giving you a hard time time giving you a hard time and now you're going to give us. Who does sit like were there's right. Everybody Likes Workers Right Yeah Oh yeah. Okay. So they have new flavors coming out this fall. Are you ready to hear what they are share? Okay. So we got pumpkin spice, Caramel, apple and cinnamon cream, and this makes me extremely happy because I don't have the patience for hard candy. So they're going to be available in the soft choose which means. Less, work for me. Less work no, it's more work you have to get that. Out of your teeth. Yeah. That's true. Good Point. Good point I didn't do. They have soft candy now I think. So I think the don't you. I only know like workers, my grandmother who was like the cutest human being alive was obsessed with warriors and when I was young living in New York, I would drive to us every Sunday and I bring her a bag of workers and we would enjoy them. I love them and I was like looking forward to these I will try them but I didn't realize they were. Chewy. Bet really good though. Maybe, put him on top of like ice cream or something I don't know what? The not be really hard to eat. They'll be in Mike have you met us? Does that really sound like something we would do probably not something I would. Maybe. A. Well I have your weekend plans already for you. Are you ready? You know what you're going to be doing this weekend Lisa. Tell me tie dye with wine. Okay. This is the newest craze I guess in with people who are still in quarantine. So basically, what you do is you use wine as the is the die and you make tidy shirts with wine. I can link to a website on our food cast page. They'll show you how to do it. The only thing I would suggest is use a cheap bottle. You don't WanNA use like a forty dollar bottle of wine to make touch short. So get like two buck chuck at Traderjoes what about if you only use like? The white wine what if I only like Chardonnay and the House without worrying. Pattern. Do Tie I. Don't know I've been tie-dying Teen I. Think I've. I've dyed like six or. Items Minimum I made my sister birthday tie-dye pants. I've made I've taken a lot of my vintage t shirts I'm GonNa, try this I. think it sounds it sounds really fun and the best part is like if I do open a bottle of wine a very rarely finish it. So it's something to do with the wine the extra red wine that's just been sitting in your fridge. If you get thirsty, you can like ring out the extra into your mouth. As long as it's clean shirt. That's all I got. Okay. Well so let's get into the subject of the day. Subject of the day is meal prep and you know I personally like I always say I'm kind of uncoordinated in the kitchen I don't think of myself. I was like I'm a meal prep or do I have the patience to sit and prepare things and put them in cute little containers and I was thinking no, that's not very me. But when I thought about it further I was. Like that is not really what the definition of meal prepping is to me and to US Jamie and we've had this conversation philosophically. It's really anything that you can do to make your life easier when it comes to thinking about what foods you're going to be eating for the week, right? Yes. It is preparing for your meals, not necessarily just preparing meals exactly, and especially you know during this time when we are home a lot more we may or may not be. Getting takeout or bringing in food a lot of our food is being made by us like it's now is the best time ever to start thinking about what you can do to make your life easier. So you don't fall back and make that phone, call an order that pizza in or just grab something that you might not be happy that you ate afterwards. So the best thing you can do is really thinking advance about what you can keep on hand how you can. Either prepare it or how you will prepare it, and so you're ready for anything. It's
"assode" Discussed on The Twilight Zone Podcast
"You know as a watch isn't. UNWATCHABLE. There's nothing you know keeps your attention. It certainly gets a little bit repetitive. It also draws upon Four of us are dying from the original series which. was also drawn upon a movie. That I haven't seen in a long time, but I I loved when I was younger I need it. Hunt down because comic Lachlan's in it, and he's awesome. I didn't know that when I was ten, but movie called. The hidden is very similar in theme. It's a lot more graphic. There's like an alien in other stuff, but that being said. This theme has been done I thought that this was done a little bit differently. This time a little bit simpler. It had different angles to it. But. It went on for too long I think especially on the talent of watching downtime which I thought was timed perfectly. Probably the best time episode may be in both season so far. series it just. It just showed me how great this could be if he kept it to. The thirty minute and change range you know under forty minutes I. Guess would be the answer. I just thought this meandered a bit, but you know the technical stuff wasn't the issue I. Don't WanNa dissect the way that it was made because that really wasn't the problem. I think for me. The issue at this point in the series is that there's not a message. and. I don't really know what the message of this episode was. Because the the message being shouted to me by the sign on the psychic with something like I'm paraphrasing like. Find your true self or you know. Find out who you really are something like that. This guy knew exactly who he really was. He was a great actor who was underrated. Who broke? Who deserve better from his girlfriend? That's exactly who he thought he was. That's exactly who he was. You are who you think you are so for me. This episode would've been benefited by a character who didn't have confidence acting and was doubtful, but was actually better than he thought, but not getting jobs because he couldn't get his confidence together, and maybe his girlfriend is supportive and trying to tell him like you can do this. You could do this. And because of that reason he goes out and tries to rob the bank, and because of that reason he needs to get into other people's lives and characterizations to find himself. I. Get it. That's a lot more of an aide to be story. That's a lot more straightforward and far be it from me to just sit and start criticizing the way somebody writes in play editor, but. I do think that there's something to be said for the first four episodes in that. You're trying to do these more inner stories instead of outer stories, and that's a great thing. But if you do the inner story, you still need a direction. You still need a point. You still need a message. That's clear and concise, and I just am watching stories now you know as compared to season one season one laid out, not just like. Hey, we're going to take on these political points or these social points, but we're going to from a story perspective. We're going to take you from one place to another place, and you're going to know where you're going the entire time. We're all on his bus together and we're going here and some people didn't like that. And some people did because of where the destination always ended up, but Even the episodes in season one that I thought didn't hit the mark hard like the wonder pinned i. know what I'm doing. I know what you're trying to tell me. What the messages I understand what I have just watched. Maybe I didn't like everything about it. Maybe I didn't like the style and the tone of it compared to other better episodes replay, or or what have you but? I, I know what I watched and I I don't know what I watched. The WHO of you I don't know what I watched and meet in the middle. I don't quite know what I watched down-time, even though it was more enjoyable, I don't know what I watched in ovation. And when I say I don't know what I watched. It means I. Don't know what the messages and maybe I'm dense. Maybe I haven't thought about it long enough because I'm recording less than twelve hours after I, watched them or at least twenty four hours after I, watched them. Maybe the problem is me, but. I need the twilight zone to have an edge and a point to it at a message you know when when circling and the rest of those guys wrote episodes like the game of pool where there is no social band, it's just about a guys, ambition, and how it's destroying him. I know that I could summon up in half a sentence I know when I'm watching. There's so much complexity to it that I could simply recap it in one sentence. A man is destroyed by his own ambition. But when you watch the episode at so much more than that and I get it. That is the twilight zone at its best. You know it's a high bar, but it's not about being as good as game a pool. It's about trying to follow that mold and I don't really see that in the first four episodes as great as their shot as great as acted as great as directed. You know it's like music. You know in hip-hop. Sometimes you can have a really dope MC. And he could be you know Rahman over really dope beats, but for whatever reason. You appreciate the beach. You appreciate the RHYMES, but it doesn't work together and I think to some degree. That's an analogy for what I'm seeing so far in the first four episodes briefly I will mention again. I feel like I mentioned too many times, but. to Centaur stories is a series I got picked up by W and was shown here in the states. On CW, it's available in the CW APP. to binge, and while not a Rep.

Experts share what you need to know about traveling during the coronavirus outbreak
"Today. We're going to talk all things. Wuhan Corona virus with our very own. Dr Han Li who senior director of medical affairs at our sister site health line. Dr Lee thank you so much for joining us today. A lot of things have been happening day by day. We're recording this episode assode on Monday February third higher level. What's going on with the corona virus so at the high level? The Corona virus seems to still be spreading. We're still L. hearing of increased cases of New Infections and additional deaths. Right now I think we're at around three hundred and sixty one deaths. The vast majority of deaths are occurring in China and the vast majority of the cases are occurring in China. But I think over the weekend the news list that the first death outside of China has occurred and it was in a forty four year old Filipino. Man after he traveled to John. Yeah I I heard that news and I was Kinda on a shock because it was my understanding that younger healthy people have nothing to worry about and we clearly don't know the medical history of this forty four year old but Should people be really concerned turned by the at this point. You're exactly right. We don't know what this man's medical history as it is surprising cause forty four year old is not considered an older person and we had up until this point and hearing that only the people who are older or who have compromised immune system or any kind of pre existing medical medical condition or respiratory condition. Were really at risk of increased mortality. So definitely we are concerned about that but at this point we don't know enough and it the worst thing we could do is to overly panicked when not enough information is known and to jump to any false conclusions. I think I think the main thing to really keep in mind as we still need to find out a lot more information. Can you describe a little bit. What are some of the symptoms that they start with and then progress into and actually is a like the flu? In fact many of the cases that have been documented Came with folks who said that they had very very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all The ones that we're hearing about the ones that make the news are the ones that are the most of here Were there presenting with respiratory distress. So you have the flu. But on top of that you're getting severe costs. High Fever and difficulty breathing to the point where people are having difficulty with shortness of breath requiring a respiratory support either with a ventilator or intimidation and so those are the ones that are really severe that require hospitalization but in a lot of the cases including the ones wants that we've seen in the US people who've been documented with the novel Krono virus are well enough to actually stay at home as long as they remain quarantined. Nineteen at home and that they're not going around potentially transmitting it to other people. What would you say to someone who said okay the world freaking out about this but the regular flu is way more deadly? Why do we care about this so much? Well it definitely is the case that you know. We're scared about this because we have a situation and we've been hearing about it a lot more in the last a couple of decades that there are these new flus or viruses and bacteria that are making the jump between animals to humans and it's frightening to rest because there's a sense of vulnerability that we don't know when it's going to happen how it's going to happen or how quickly the spread can happen before we can contain it but in actuality you're exactly right. The percentage of people who get the normal seasonal influenza is much higher and the mortality rates for those are still quite high But that's where medical information and accurate medical education is really pivotal. We had health line media. Spend a lot the time really trying to do the best. We can to make sure that we are all of our readers with the best information so that they really can't understand whether true risks are and not beats you easily led into this sense of panic because of misinformation is a big thing especially in this day of social media. I know I got multiple notable people sending me the picture of the Grotesque Bat in a bowl Claiming that the corona virus came from people eating burnt bats. What's in bowls in China? Is there any sense of truth to that. And did it definitely come from this animal market as many people are talking about yes and now so yes there is Evidence at this point that suggests that the krona virus the cause of this current spread was from the wet market. But it wasn't necessarily from eating the food per se. A lot of it is actually from close contacts. Close contact is defined as a six foot proximity to other an infected animal or an infected person. I think the scare has now come because we're originally came from an animal in close proximity with an animal now people who are in close contact contact with others who have had virus or who have the illness of the krono virus can potentially get sick as well. So that's the real concern is that we've you. were seeing the human to human transmission. We've seen the cases in California in Chicago where a recent traveler from Wuhan Came Back and unwittingly transmitted it to family member because of the close contact and this is scary because unlike Ebola which required you know bodily fluid with pretty intense contact. This seems to be passing person to person pretty easily is that why officials are really concerned. Yes so there are certain ways as you can catch an illness. Sometimes it's really requires very very close contact intimate contact but when it comes to airborne illnesses like the corona virus or the influenza influenza it can travel and respiratory droplets and was that anyone can transmit if they're infected with the virus via talking hocking coughing or sneezing in close proximity to other people which is why we always reinforce in all of our education and our content on headline media that the best thing is to practice safe precautions. If you feel sick stay at home. Don't go to work. Don't travel through mass transit if you're going to cough sneeze he's or be close to people be very mindful and respectful. Don't cost out Logan. Cover your mouth with your elbow not your hand or your shoulder cover your mouth with tissue of possible and throw that away immediately. Don't let it just sit around infecting surfaces which other people can touch and then transmit to themselves so these as a precaution that we always try to reinforce with folks to help decrease any potential cause of transmission from person to person and let's talk about airplanes so listeners of this podcasts are many of them are probably on a plane. Right now listening to this. What do you recommend in terms of wiping down your seat area? Does it make sense. I know a lot of people. People are wearing. The medical masks that people are saying are pointless for receiving Viruses in the air How do we protect ourselves on airplanes and in airports airports it makes a Lotta sense to feel particularly vulnerable when you travel because you're supposed to a lot of travelers from lots of different areas and you're in an enclosed environment with airplanes? It is particularly good to try to clean your area as much as possible as wise to travel with antibacterial wipes and antibacterial actuarial Gel. So that you can hear in your area making sure that the antibacterial Gel has at least sixty percent alcohol rate of possible and make sure show that you clean off your tray table and avoid putting things in the back seat pocket because that's really just a nice medium for bacteria one of the things things that I find very interesting. Is that when you're on a plane. There's this belief that you're really at risk and there's nothing you can do about getting sick actually you can can really help yourself by just making sure that your seat as well ventilated by using the the air that that's right above your seat a lot of folks recommend that if you turn on the air vent position it so that it forms a force field effectively front of your head that you can actually blow a lot of the Viruses and bacteria way is not gonNA be one hundred proof but it'll help in terms of making sure that your area as well ventilated. Oh so it does actually work. I think you you know everything that you can do to help yourself protect yourself. It's a good idea. You know we always say when when we have situations like this to stay in a well ventilated area. You can't always do that when you're traveling because you're on a plane that's you know you're going to circulated exactly but what you can do is just to make sure that you've got some well ventilated while circulated air around you if possible you can test yourself by putting your hands on your lap and making sure that the air is hitting you on the top of your hand. That's when you know that the air is really blowing right in front of your face interesting. I did not realize that onto the topic of facemask most of the surgical face masks that the people are wearing. I've heard do little to protect inborn viruses. It's all about not infecting others. Is that true or as long as you. You know squeezed squeezed around your nose. Do these mass do anything. Well first and foremost the CDC does not currently recommend traveling with face masks. Because at right at this point. It's not known known whether the face masks will help at all or which types of face masks will help. Not all face masks are created equally a lot of the commercially available ones. Don't have the filtration that will help protect you from the viruses. But you're right. It's also the way we use the facemask. I often see particularly when I'm traveling in the subway systems. When people where masks they were all too loosely and they think they've got it off on well and they're protecting themselves? There's a lot of hollow space and open ventilation on the sides and so it really is effectively doing nothing. The other mistake that people make is they were the same one all the time for long periods of time so whatever contamination commission is on the mass they just retain with them and they don't throw it away. These risks mass are supposed to be single. Use face masks so you're not supposed to carry read them forever. But a lot of folks do that and they touch them and they touch other surfaces and they put them back on their face thereby rendering the whole mask kind of pointless at this point the best thing is related to perform good hand washing. Wash your hands at least twenty seconds with soap and water and try to avoid touching your face particularly alertly eyes nose and mouth after you've touched other surfaces when you're in public areas like on a plane or on the subway or other mass transit.
Fat-Positive Comedy, Diet-Culture Recovery, and Native American Representation with Jana Schmieding of Woman of Size Podcast
"I'm your host I Christie Harrison and today I'm talking with comedian fat positive activist and fellow podcasters Janisch meeting. You may know from the woman of size podcast. We discuss using comedy to call out Diet Culture why there needs to be more native representation in the media how Western values contribute to who oppression and ill health how diet cultures demonization of emotional eating causes additional distress. And so much more. It's a great episode assode and I can't wait to share it with you and just a moment but first I'll answer this week's listener question which is from a listener named lease who writes as a health at every size psychologists. I appreciate she at your podcast and often encourage my clients to listen to it as well. It seems an oversight however that to my knowledge you never even mentioned how cultural change has led to bigger bodies. I talk with my clients. About how cultural changes moving less. Do to conveniences and more sedentary jobs and easy access to lots of different. Different foods is our reality today. I find that talking about these. Cultural Choices helps decrease shame about being a bigger body for some people. I'm wondering if there's the reason you and your guests don't ever seem to refer to this neutral phenomena so thanks leased for that great question and before I answer just my standard disclaimer. That these answers. There's and this podcast in general our information on educational purposes only and are not a substitute for individual medical or mental health advice. So I'm really glad you asked this question because I think this is one of those really subtle nuances when working to combat diet culture. So I'm sure that some of the folks you've worked with definitely have have had some reduction in shame from hearing these messages that you're speaking about but in my experience it can sometimes actually reinforce shame for people to hear that cultural troll changes have ostensibly lead to bigger bodies. And I say ostensibly here because I don't think it's entirely clear that the cultural changes you're talking about have have led to larger body sizes if anything it's the worry about those cultural changes that contributed to the development of Diet Culture right culture that lead people to start dieting and we do know that dieting in and of itself tends to drive people's weight up over time not that there's anything wrong with weight gain or being in a larger body of course but dieting really does tend to have that effect so the idea that food was more available and that jobs were becoming more sedentary came out of the shift from rural life working on farms to industrial jobs in cities in the mid eighteen hundreds. That's where this idea. I think I started to take root route and there is also industrialization of our food supply. That was happening around the same time and the culture was really a wash in anxiety about what those changes ages quote unquote meant and this was more than one hundred and fifty years ago. Remember well before any arguments about a so called. Obesity epidemic heavy air quotes here right. It came on the scene because that concept was only invented about twenty five years ago after fatness had become thoroughly demonized in the culture and and people have been dieting and trying to lose weight and increasingly large numbers for a hundred years so in other words I think if the average body size in the US has has indeed crept up over the years. which is debatable? Depending on the years that we're talking about probably has a lot more to do with Diet. Culture and the rampant rates of our efforts to shrink ourselves than it does with the nature of our work or the convenience of our food and of course good nutrition and having food available definitely could to help people achieve the body size that they were genetically determined to achieve in a situation of food access. But there's nothing inherently wrong with that and what's more if you look back to the mid eighteen hundreds it's really clear that worries about sedentary jobs and industrial food were not about body size or health per se so much as they were about morality the supposed effect of industrialization on moral character on the moral character of the American people people that was being questioned and debated at the time. And of course. That's ridiculous right. Because there's no moral difference between rural dwellers and city-dwellers or people people who farm and people who buy their food from a store or work in office jobs right. There's no moral virtue and working on a farm as opposed to working in a factory or an office but the belief that there was the belief that there there was some sort of moral difference. There really comes out of puritanical ideas about morality and also so is really tied up with racism xenophobia because a lot of the fears about industrialization and urban were actually fears about immigration and the a big wave of immigrants that were moving to the US and moving into US cities specifically because of the opportunity to work in the factories. That were springing up there. So I talk about all of this in the first chapter of my book. So if you're curious to know more about this history or read the references you can check it out there but I bring up all this history just to point out here that a the people have been worrying about the effects of sedentary work and convenient food Everson's industrialization began and from the very start. Those worries were tied up with arguments about morality and be because of that history. It really isn't neutral to say that sedentary work and convenient food quote unquote caused ause more people to be larger body. That argument comes with baggage in the form of beliefs that we really quote unquote should be working more physical labor intensive jobs and cooking all our food from scratch all that stuff and I think that often that's what people take from conversations about how these kinds of cultural factors have have affected body size. They take it as a mandate to start exercising more and eating less or eating differently and of course. Those are dieting behaviors the so really arguments about sedentary jobs and the food environment are often just triggers for dieting behaviors especially in the twenty first century. When we've had almost was twenty years of people like Michael Pollen and Marion Nestle and quote unquote wellness influencers giving out diet tips under the guise of cultural analysis alice's or wellness advised which is basically what chapter two of my book is all about? Is this insidious shift from overt diets to covert diets from diets calling themselves diets to die. It's by another name and too often conversations about food. Politics are full of very thinly veiled fat hat phobia and food phobia which are harmful to people's health. No matter their body size but especially harmful to people in larger bodies who've had to endure repeated the incidents of fat phobia and diet culture trauma throughout their lives and so often have a heightened awareness of it and a heightened sensitivity to it for that reason and so that that is why. I don't use that argument and of course I can't speak for my guests on the podcast but I imagine that might be part of why they don't either because of all this baggage that comes comes with that argument in the form of morality in the form of the history of this argument and in the form of a modern manifestation of this argument as leading leading people to Diet right leading people to engage in dieting behaviors like trying to eat less and move more and do all the things that Dia Culture tells us to do except up now it's under the guise of correcting for the problems of the ills of modern life instead of under the guise of weight loss for aesthetics. Or whatever it might have been even before the twenty first century so to lease who asked the question. I in no way want to shame you for discussing those cultural factors with your clients. I can totally understand understand why it would seem innocuous neutral and even freeing to mention these things and you know some of your clients might truly feel like it takes the the pressure off of them as individuals to be responsible for their body size. But we're all always learning even as Hayes professionals and I know I myself refused to talk about the food environment and sedentary jobs and all that stuff to before I started to reflect on how problematic these food activists type arguments really can and be how. They're not really rooted in fact so much as beliefs about what body size means or what certain behaviors mean and how these arguments can unintentionally trigger. Shame in the very people that were trying to help heal from shame and I also want to say that I'm by no means some perfect clinician. Here I I just happened to have given a lot of thought to this particular nexus of food politics and diet culture because of my own background and my lived experiences because I it was so bought into the food activist Movement for years and it did me tremendous harm it really worse than my disordered eating and so I think that makes me more suspicious of food activist arguments now and more willing to sort of take a critical eye towards

sooner we're curious how such a thing could be so they decided let's follow the skull and they followed the flying skull all the way to Keg Arocca where it leads them to a crumbling old mansion from ancient times the decaying manor was surrounded by wild overgrown weeds in an old gate choked by vines so Reiko ordered Suna wait for him outside and Reiko entered the mansion alone as he approached the threshold he started to become aware of a presence there was an old woman lurking behind the door and he called out who are you she replied I've been living here for a good long time I am too hundred ninety years old and have served in their turn nine lords of this house and then Reiko saw her she was a horrible sight to behold before the war years is the old woman grasped her own eyelids with a tool and she flipped her eyelids back over the top of her head like a hat then she pushed her south open with a large hairpin and her lips became gigantic and she took her lips and she tied them around her own neck and her breasts began to sag down to her lap like rags the old woman began to speak again she said spring comes in autumn goes but my sad thoughts remain the same years again end but my misery is eternal this place is a demon's din no human dares pass through gates my sorrowful youth has gone but my old self sadly remains element that Bush warblers depart and swallows on the beam fly off in her sorrow the wretched old woman begged Reiko to killer with his award and put her out of her misery Reiko could see that the old woman was out of her mind so he left her alone and he instead decided to go into the house to see what had happened in salt the mystery of the flying skull and what was afflicting this woman making her think she lived demons den so he went inside the house and outside the sky grew dark and pherson winds begin to blow but soon awaited loyally for his master and inside the House Reiko began to hear the sounds of footsteps echoing like the beat of a hand drum then he saw coterie of spirits and goblins coming into the room with him but the creature didn't attack instead they only danced around and then after his fear before passing out through another door in their place came into the room a tiny woman no more than three feet tall but with a gigantic taste more than two thirds of her whole height and she had stick heavy eyebrows and when she opened her mouth Reiko could see her front teeth were black she wore we'll have an a red Hakima with nothing underneath her arms were so thin they were like strings and her skin was Pale as snowfall then that woman disappeared and Reiko realize don was nearing almost as soon as the strange woman left another woman came into the room this time the woman was graceful and calm and so beautiful that Reiko could barely believe his eyes he thought that this woman must be the true mistress of the old house finally coming out to welcome him and her is shown as bright as the reflection of a bonfire in black lacquer but when Reiko was distracted by the woman's beauty she got the better of him she lifts did up the him of her Hakima and from underneath it she heaved at the swordsman some kind of material what looks like balls of white cloud and the balls of white cloud blinded him they got his is in a rage Reiko drew his sword and a slashed the woman but she evaporated into thin air he slashed so mightily the soared passed through the floorboards and cut a foundation stone and the tip of the blade broke off where the woman had been there was now nothing but a pool of white blood on the floor with a trail of more white blood leading off somewhere else Reiko and soon joined together again and they followed the trail of white blood out of the else up into the mountains and finally to the mouth of a dark cave out of which white blood was flowing like a river at soon as suggestion the two of them made an effigy of written and vines in the shape of a man and they carried it before them as they enter the cave inside the cave they found a gigantic monster in the form of a mountain spider but nearly two hundred feet tall and wore a brocade on its head its eyes were as bright as the sun and the moon the giant monster bellowed what has happened to my body it is so painful then the monster hurled something at them in the dark and the projectile hit the effigy that they carried in front of them and knocked it down Reiko and SUNA examined the object the monster had shot at them and they discovered that it was the broken tip of Reiko says award together they took hold of the creature and they began to drag it out of the cave and the monster put up a good fight and it was a terrible monster indeed strong enough to with boulders with its legs so Reiko said a prayer to the sun goddess a Montereau sue and asked her for aid with the fight Reiko in Suna pulled and pulled actually the monster collapsed and fell belly up on the earth without hesitation Reiko drew his sword and chopped off the monster's head soon Aranda slash chopin the monster's belly but found when he got there that it had already been opened by a deep gash this was the wound Reiko had given it inside the house when it was in the former if the woman in this proved that the giant spider truly was the beautiful woman that he had seen from the gas in the giant spiders belly one thousand nine hundred the ninety heads tumbled out onto the ground the warriors cut open another part of the spider's body and many smaller spider monsters swarmed out each about the size as of a seven or eight year old child when the warriors looked further in the stomach of the spider beast they found twenty human skulls knowing what had to be done Reiko in Suna dug a grave in the ground and buried the twenty skulls and then burned the giant spiders din when the emperor heard but Reiko and soon had done in eliminating this heinous monster that had been plaguing the country he gave them promotions and appointed them governors of their own provinces and this is the story of Moton no Raiko and the giant spider that is a fabulous story I love it I just like the the the layers of the adventure and then just the the revelation ends about the horrific monstrosity that they're faced with I like how it's weird and rambling like it takes a long time to get to the final form of the monster you don't really know where it's GonNa go it takes you to a haunted house I something about that feels both unusual and intuitive the so that they start off seeing the skull and I have to assume that I guess the skull was some form of the monster I don't know but but also like how in a lot of the monster slayer stories you come across there's a more specific reason that the that the hero must undergo the quest to slay the monster that they have to rescue a princess or something right this time they're just detectives investigating something weird that they saw eventually leads them into the monster's cave to kill it which also ultimately kind of makes you feel bad for the monster like it didn't even kidnap anybody they knew they just like made their way to it seems to be entirely recreational on their part yeah well I mean I guess it kind of makes them like a some kind of roving police force almost in a way or maybe they just needed the experience points I mean that it's true so this giant spider story comes from an early fourteenth century Japanese picture scroll called the Sushi Goumas Soci- and the version of the worry that I read is as translated by the scholar Dr Nuriko T- writer who you've referenced on the show before I think in our episode about cuteness and monstrosity ooh that would make sense yeah so so my version of the story I just told was based on her translation of this fourteenth century scroll and this is not the only legend `bout giant spiders in early modern Japan the Sushi Ghouma were earth spider was a common monster found in no plays and in supernatural narratives in the following centuries but there are also other spider monsters like the ONI which was sometimes described as like a giant spider with the head of a bull and it attacks fishermen at the water's edge and there's also the jurors Ghouma which is the literally the prostitutes spider and it's another ghost like creature that appears in the literature of the Edo period shape shifting like the Sushi Boom Oh between the forms of a beautiful woman and a voracious arachnids luring men to their deaths a classic trope of of monsters appearing as is desirable humans or even non human entities of course and you see that too in in the Sushi in the story where the spider monster appears as this beautiful woman in the House and distracts the swordsman with her beauty Just long enough to throw clouds white matter in his eyes who knows what that's supposed to be I don't know if I guess it's the Silk Right Oh maybe yeah I don't know it's supposed to be I mean it's it's described as literally like clouds it's hard to know exactly what is referring to it seems to be some kind of magical substance all right yeah so we're doing something a little bit different today than we usually do in our October assode where we love to focus on monsters today we wanted to take a look at the immortal enemy of our beloved monsters the monster slayer Yeah the thing that defines the hero other times there's not a lot to say about the monster itself except certain hero of note gave it a good slaying at some point yeah and it's almost as deep and as old as the monster mythology itself ride the oldest monster stories you can find when you go back in time very often are Mr slayers stories there's a monster and there's a hero who must venture out often alone or with a faithful companion to face the monster and destroyed Royat in the monster slayer archetype is actually classed as a particular type of like myth archetype the the the princess in the Dragon type story which appears all all over the world in different cultures in you know in the that's the very broad take you know that there's like a princess who's being held captive or being threatened by some kind of monster and a hero must venture out with courage and face the
The Vienna Woods Killer AKA the Poet of Death
"We begin our dive into the notorious. Austrian serial killer Dr Johann Jack Survey Ker known as the Vienna Woods killer and the poet of Death Jack Hunter Vaguer was always a sadistic and violent man but for years he was able to mask dark side by presenting himself as an author of poet and journalist in one thousand nine hundred seventy six. Jack was convicted of murdering Margaret Shaffer and received a light sentence by the Austrian courts. Margaret was Jack Second Victim. However charges were never brought for his first suspected murderer but while he was in prison Jack took the time to educate himself he began to write short stories and poems it culminated in his bestselling memoir purgatory. His memoir caught the attention of Austria's elite and petitions soon wet around begging for Jack's release in one thousand nine hundred fifteen eighteen years into his sentence. Jack Vega was set free and his celebrity continued to flourish but just four months into his freedom. Jack's urged to kill sex workers revealed itself and for the next year Jack Prowl the streets of Vienna Prague and Los Angeles strangling sex workers with their their own underwear and dumping the bodies in the woods he was caught in nineteen ninety-two leaving behind him a trail of twelve bodies though there is speculation that he killed even more women who have never been identified Jack Interviewers life even at its beginning was marred by violence when World War Two ended in nineteen forty-five allied forces from the US Britain France and the USSR remained in Germany and Austria. The allies occupied the two countries as they began the long process to rebuild the occupation lasted for ten years ending in one thousand nine hundred fifty five during those ten years the German and Austrian birth rates spiked the procreation wasn't entirely between German and Austrian citizens instead many young women found themselves pregnant with the children of allied allied soldiers many children born during this time period had no idea who their fathers were in Germany roughly four hundred thousand babies had allied light fathers and in Austria that numbers around Thirty Thousand Jack Vegas would be counted among those thirty thousand in nineteen fifty fifty two ratio owned travailler. A young beautiful country girl took a trip to Trieste Italy while on this trip she met an American soldier hurt named Jack Becker. Unfortunately we know very little about their relationship but we can make some guesses based on the time period the aftermath the war forced many women to engage in survival sex work in order to make ends meet even worse. Many of these women were sexually assaulted by Allied soldiers. Either of these could have happened to Theresa. It's possible that Theresa was forced to engage in sex work to survive but it it is also possible that her time with Jack was simply a passionate fling one that resulted in pregnancy while pregnant to ratio returned to Austria and struggled to find work. She turned to petty crime like fraud and theft as a way to provide for herself in the weeks before giving birth to Jack back to ratio was arrested for fraud however for some unexplained reason Teresa was released. She then travelled to Yudin Burg Austria and on August Sixteenth Nineteen fifty gave birth to Johann. Jack faker named after his American father. Please note that much of what is known about Jack's. It's life comes from his memoir purgatory or the trip to jail report of a guilty man and it must be taken with a grain of salt written while he was imprisoned during the nineteen eighties. Jack's writing was solely intended to garner sympathy from those who read it Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode assode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thanks Greg as an adult it. Jack Unterweger was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder. A couple of aspects of narcissistic personality disorder are exaggerating achievements mints and talents as well as having an exaggerated sense of self importance much of this comes through in the way. Jack describes the harsh upbringing. He faced as a child wild. Jack claims that his mother was a sex worker but nothing has ever been found to confirm. She made her living as one. The general consensus is that she worked as a barmaid and waitress Chris. It is possible that while she worked as a barmaid she engaged in sex work from time to time or that she told Jack that's how he like so many others at that time was conceived saved or it could be pure fabrication it could when Jack was two years old. Theresa was arrested once again for theft and sent to jail. Jack was then sent to live with his grandfather fair demand visor in Carinthia South Austria from this point on Jack claims to have had a terrible childhood. According to Jack Fernand visor was an abusive drunk who forced him to act like a quote court fool a slave. We've educated by grandfather to be a fraud accomplice injects version of events he was barely given enough food to eat or enough clothes to keep warm and according to Jack he had no mother figure around instead a rotation of sex workers in lovers frequented the tiny hut decades later Charlotta. Our Ferdinand stepdaughter would protest that all of Jack's claims about his grandfather were a pack of lies Charlotta had lived with Sheridan ad in the same house a decade and a half earlier in the late thirties. Charlotta never disputed that Fernand had a rough exterior a product product of his country upbringing but she believed the rest of Jack's descriptions. Were fabrications according to Star Lotte her own mother. Maria Springer lived with Jack and Ferdinand for about six years beginning in nineteen fifty two Maria helped raise the boy disputing the claim that only sex workers unfair demands random lovers around as Jack got older. He became something of a burden. He was very stubborn and manipulative. Charlotte claims that he would come up with clever schemes to get whatever he wanted. Jack's attitude soon proved too much Maria Springer and she left in nineteen eighteen fifty eight when Jack was about eight two months later Austrian child services took Jack Away from fair to net and placed him with Fernand sister. Mr The exact reasons why jack was taken away from Fernand are unclear. It's possible that Jack's delinquency and fair demands inability to control troll it were responsible or it's possible that fair. Dan was a little too rough with check now that Maria wasn't around to contain him. Charlotta our does believe that it was during those two months alone with Fair Dinette that the myth of the overly abusive grandfather began in addition to genetics a child's child's environment can play a key role in person forming narcissistic personality disorder or NPD according to the Mayo Clinic in most cases a child who was pampered or received excessive praise could develop the disorder however a consistently negative environment can also lead to NPD. If Jack Really did face the emotional and physical abuse from his grandfather as he professed. It's possible that the

Why is 'The Legend of Zelda' game music so magical?
"The Zelda music is incredibly magical. Well, this is what Jesse brought up with Zelda breath while he's like his music and go back and look at Zelda Accoring time. It's all music only music's around music's free to be upset to be there's no real music Zelda breath awhile. It's like 'cause there isn't and it's upsetting those huge integral important part of the game of the series for me for the original Zelda. And this is the thing. I think people forget about the original Zelda starts with the theme. People think Zelda over theme, they think it's art said up. Okay. What a lot of people. Forget about that zone. The theme is that it starts that they slightly different variation. When you let that title screen role where they tell the story of Zelda and show you all the items you can accumulate. It's a little bit more complex. It's got a few more levels to it. And that Newsweek to this day still gives me chills. Whenever I hear it. That's awesome. It is so cool. That's really what's great. And then you get onto your favorite game of or what you consider the best game of time. And that game is literally about the Korean is a musical engineer literally walk around with an instrument, and you have to learn how to play songs. Yeah. You you have to learn how to play songs in a game this fantastic. Which by the way, chronicles of teddy is an Indian that. Also, does that any more recent give chronicles check it out on steam? Playstation. But if you had to pick as song from offering of time, what would it be? Probably the forest. Forest forest. Do. That's all I think about when I think about Zelda, and I just think about I just think about all my siblings, remember playing it when I was younger and us all attaching everyone in my family like beat Zelda together. Yeah. My school beat Zelda, and we'd all like sing those songs together and such. Did you are you familiar with oak arena of rhyme? It is. Somebody made a mash abou- of oak green of time use it with a bunch of famous songs. It's like a Jay z rapping over one of the oak arena. Time is a good. Yeah.

That theme and we talked about this a little bit. I think in pass up Assode that whistle is the same whistle from the Mario universe. Oh, yeah. Right. We've talked about your like Keith this. And I was like yes Zelda. I'm like, nah, it's from super. Mario was going. They just reused it.

I mean, they're great to have. But you don't necessarily need one. Now, they're current flagship talking about Sony is the a nine it's amazingly going to be two years old this April, and despite being intended, I sports shooters and more on the pro side of things and yes, I'm doing air quotes here.

But it doesn't have built in you've got options like my old D seven hundred and you know, what I'm not entirely convinced that we're gonna see Sony do that in the future. You're going to add a grip if you want it, you know, if you've got an eight nine you've got that sweet four hundred to eight and you're shooting sports justifying that one why spend a few hundred.

"assode" Discussed on #WhoWouldWin
"Maybe they didn't have time to shower because they had to be in making up here. Right. Right. And I found myself drawing on a lot of the breathing. So in through the nose out through the mouth and keep your mind, quiet. Do you have back to the conventions? So that's something. You can remember if you feel overwhelmed by a crowd. Do you have any cool convention stories cool convention stories, you know, what? No, I don't have anything to kind of that really stand. Out. My first convention was in New Orleans, and I actually set up a booth to sell my books, and it was awesome. Because my booth was right across from the five. Oh, I legion. And I don't know they do like, they're like, you know, kost players in their organization. They do a lot of charity work with. They're always dressed up as baiters five. Oh, I leaves oh bunch of stormtroopers and was around. So I got to hang out with them. Darth Vader took a picture of me. And my book I got to play around into stormtrooper helmet. So it was fun. You know, you had those experiences at conventions, which are great. What about you? Do you have good convention stories? Well, one of them we talked about on a pass step Assode, but it's been a long time. So I'll I'll remind it. And this person has unfortunately since passed away since we did that episode. It was the actor who played a Herschel on the Walking Dead all about to make Herschel. Yes. And no, yes. And no he's played by Scott Wilson veteran actor and this was a Nashville at the heroes and villains fan fest, and I'm walking on the floor. And there were some amazing cost players there for the Walking Dead in particular that and he passes me, and I say looks like Hershel just kind of thinking out loud. He turns is because I am Herschel. That's kick ass. He unfortunately, passed away no longer with us not long after that another one in this kind of leads me to mind the story. How what do you think crystal is the best way at a convention to approach one of your favorite of creators? You know, whether it's an actor an artist or just an author, you know, some people have booths and they're more accessible than others. Some people have lines and security. There's all there's all different situations. But how what do you think is the most etiquette way to approach somebody at a con make sure that you're aware of personal space? I know a lot of a lot of twitch streamers talk about that too. Because when you go to twitch con or just kind of any of the other comic cons or conventions around you'll be able to meet them in a lot of people think that just because you've seen somebody like online or TV or heard them in the podcast. It's completely. Okay. Like run up. Give them a hug not. Okay. Don't do that. Don't do that. 'cause you'd never know. So personal space is really big. But you know, just be friendly just approach somebody the way that you would want to be approached. You know, if it was you, you know, you walk up you say, hi, you know, introduce yourself, you know, say that you're a big fan and just just kind of pay attention. But I would never just run up. Don't ever just run up and hug somebody. Don't don't do that restrain yourself personal space? I think that's the number one. Yeah. There's then I would say that..

That that military bearing being familiar with with with the culture. Just makes it more natural when I walk into an audition. I don't I don't feel like I have to put it on. And and I, you know, and I certainly don't put a bunch of stank on it. You know? I was watching your real this morning where you are playing a police officer. And you know, it's a couple of cops and you're breaking each other's balls. And as like, yeah, I'm sure his time in the military played into this pretty well have -solutely that was from power. Which is one of my favorite roles ever. I really get to throw down with with the other actor, and you know, in in that particular situation, I was the local NYPD detective, and he's fed rolling into my crime scene. And I don't like that. So that was easy for me to kind of, you know, raise the hackles a little bit and go after them coming up in a couple of weeks. I play the reverse side of that situation on swat on CBS. Nep Assode episode fourteen of this season. It's called the B team. And I think at airs February seventh anyway, I play a federal agent who's rolling into the local, you know, swat headquarters in and kind of you know, stirring things up.

Like, what is that all about? And I wanna I wanna see like these new new ways to experience life. And it's interesting doesn't mean you have to do it. But it's interesting to explore and learn about, and it can help you in your monogamous relationship by learning more about you think you've got to be good with one partner. Imagine the work that it takes to have multiple partners in the communication, and and everything that goes into that. So it's interesting dialogue that we'll have to have you on for a part to in could just dive into that. Yeah. For sure I mean at the end of the day, you're on this life one nine I mean, depending on your beliefs. You may you may continue. But in this body, you're in on at one time on his life. And what that means to us going to mean, you know, something different to you than than other people. And it's just always be honest with yourself, and that's not only with sexuality and relationships where you know, your definition of success and all of that stuff. So and I think people are more on his today than ever before. Which is exciting. Yeah. Yeah. And it's so true. What you just said right there, and it's a great way for us to wrap up in for our listeners to take home and think about when thinking about being friends with an X or someone of the opposite sex sex or anything in their life. So John why don't we wrap up by having you tell our listeners where they can find you online. Tell us about your new book. And then we'll say goodbye for sure I have a new book called used to be miserable. Fuck maybe guy. Timmy for life documents my journey from being miserable. To now being a lot less miserable. But of course, there's a, you know, a lot of revelation than sixty six season builds for it's written for men, but it's actually for women to a lot of Mair join because it kind of sets new standards and areas to look at like when we're talking about today about, you know, can't be friends with your eyes etcetera.

"assode" Discussed on The West Wing Weekly
"If I saw that up Assode before yesterday when I watched that truly I swear to God at a certain point, I stopped watching the episodes because you know, how it was. It was just we were eating sleeping breathing drinking west wing, and you got home you're not I'm not gonna watch west wing. I wanna do but west wing. So I honestly don't think I watched that up until yesterday. So I was kinda shocked that it was like, hey, hey, hey, hold on not as not so people. Like, I could see my Alex laws bra that is I'm fine with it. I look back on myself with age much kinder than I think. I look fantastic. But given how prudish the show has been on till this time. That's basically a nude scene. Did you mind shooting it? I remember shooting it, I don't remember anything. I'll tell you the only thing I remember, and I don't remember a lot in my life. And I was looking at this episode going. I don't I don't remember shooting that scene. I don't remember shooting. This don't remember any of this. And then when I got to with Margaret where I had to say, and I wrote it down because I would be able to say it, where's the non-proliferation fund and the uranium repatriation study? That was the one I remember I sit that I remember that. I remember I couldn't say those words as fast as I needed to them. I told Alex is it just shoot it from the back. Get it on my that my head. I'm not gonna say it. I'm not going to be able to say it. I don't even know how I said it uranium repatriation, not those are the kind of word burgers that can turn into real situation because. After after missing at once or twice this feels like there's such a light being shy and onto it that you're just gearing up for that moment in the scene. Nick concern into situations increases your chances every time. Absolutely. Yeah. Let's talk about the first time in the situation room. Steve Ryan is secretary.

"assode" Discussed on This Podcast Will Kill You
"And across the range. They vary in their talk city. Right. So some populations are very highly toxic. And some are only. Mildly toxic and across their rains there. Also, garter snakes, very calm. I'm sure we've all seen garter snakes outside recent from place to place and garter snakes. They occur across the same region. And they're the only predator of the Newt that is known to be resistant to toxic. What they I know. Right. Right. So these the snakes they eat newts regularly. Right. And this has led to a matched resistance to Detroit a toxin. And so where the newts are more toxic. The snakes are more resistant to Detroit talks. I love the. I know and just to give you an idea this ranges by three orders of magnitude own what? So we're talking about. Some snakes are one thousand times more resistant to Detroit a toxin than others. Why? That is so cool. I know which brings us back to this idea of the repeatability because this resistance, it seems to have evolved independently at least twice within garter snakes. So separate lineages have come up with this solution to being able to eat these Ruskin news. It's it's wild. It's like different garter, snakes and the same is a garters. Thank you think. Those are the same snake, but there's different populations that have evolved this different times. And clearly these newts are really important food source. I mean, and it must be extremely important, right? Because you know, this demento question ideal is like, well, how how do you get this resistance? Well, you said, you know, how to talks affects your your sodium channels, but these snakes actually have mutations in their sodium channels that make Ta-talk less efficient at binding to them. Cool. What I'd said there was different kinds of sodium channels. Man. They're just like we're gonna skip to all the resisting kind and just forget about this these ones over here that is. So I don't we all have resistance. 'cause we're not all eating haven't been. Yeah. Yeah. But it does come at a does come at a trade off. I mean, as you know, obviously, you know, these sodium channels aid provide a really basic biological function right in they help us to contract. Our muscles in move around in snakes that have very high to toxin resistance cannot move as quickly as those that. Don't interesting weird. So there's like a substantial trade off. Yes. Absolutely. But it would be really cool. If that was the whole story. But recently actually just earlier this year in two thousand eighteen there was a steady again in two species of Ruskin newts that suggests that they showed that individuals that were more toxic. Also had fewer parasites less toxic individuals. We just got silly excited. I thought you would like that one one more time just for emphases say it again, please. So Ruskin nudes. That are more toxic have fewer parasites than their less toxic counterparts guy. Yeah. So it seems like they're actually there's the possibility that not only does it help them in defense against predators. But it may also help them defend against infect. What kind of so parasites meaning like ACTA parasites or re also talking like bacteria viruses, etcetera. So if I remember correctly, they looked mostly at sort of larger parasite so things like parasitic worms, and even they looked at fungi as well at parasitic fungi for that affect Newt's things like a kitchen fungus for us. Oh, that's gonna probably have to be its whole own Assode. Yeah. For sure. That's won't dive deep into that. One. That's amazing. So this brings me back to this original question. Aaron Welsh that that you pose of like why why do we care? Why do we wanna get into like the mechanisms of all this stuff? I mean, obviously hearing these stories it's it's actually it's really cool, you know, just on its own. But there is I think some utility in really trying to understand the mechanisms either when it comes to som- be powder when it comes to, you know, these crazy creatures across the tree of life that are using to toxin there is some inherent utility there. You know, when it comes to our understanding of basic biology and medicine so back in I think it was like nineteen twenty nine..
"assode" Discussed on Why Won't You Date Me?
"I listen to your episode with just a noble, and he where he talked about the whole process of testing. It's. If you didn't listen to that up Assode. So when a pilot happens pilots, I episode of a television show. Sometimes it goes sometimes it doesn't before it goes they invite random people off the street to watch it. And then they have a button when they like something they press it, and they don't like something they present another button. And then they like ask them questions about the whole process is very very strange. What's also super antiquated Ray? I think so because that's like I feel like juries are also antiquated because it's like what eight people get together. And then everyone's like, I have my opinion. And then someone starts talking. You're like well that sounds right. Like, we're all just lemmings. We just oh, yes. The loudest room. Yes. And it's also I'm the kind of person I could totally be the loudest in the room. But if someone's louder than me, sometimes I'm just like I'll just shut up because you are so annoying. I'll just agree to get out of. Yes, I do that sometimes and sometimes with annoying, then I'll fuck them. So they shut up. Ooh, tricky, which is just not good because then you're just rewarding bad behavior. Xactly as you're sitting on his face. Yes. Like shut up Yosef shut up eat this pussy, and then I'm going to leave never fucking. So you again, unless you call me text me, then I'll come runnin because guess what home girls desperate for love before. Era reu- in lots of relationship. Yes. I did play the field. Are you like a serial monogamist or were, you know, around balanced around a lot? I mean, I met iron college. So it was a lot of just college dating. But to completely fair like everyone was, but this was also before really absent phones and stuff. So he probably could have gone a lot more. I mean the app game. I will say as awful as it is it does allow you to just have like a, but like, I don't know thousands of people at your little finger tips. It's kind of crazy. But also this whole idea like just texting people like what's up? Yeah. That would giant mining Zayed's is already just ratcheted right now, I wouldn't be able to do it. I mean, I try very hard to not text too much before meeting. Somebody. Because there's nothing worse in texting somebody. And then me like, wow. Oh my God. Like, I think we're gelling. I think this is going to be good. And then you meet them in person. And they're not as witty as they are in texting because you can think about it. And yes, yes, it's a trap. I had a friend who texted a lot with someone. They message just so much. And then afterwards she was like I'm so excited. I think this is the one they met, and he was quiet like zero. And so she was like what happened? Should we text at the table? I do magic. We gotta take a break..
What are you collecting
"Nerds, we buy comics that we plan to read, but sometimes we put them in a long box and forget all about on the comic geek speak podcast. One of the host was talking about this very thing. He had over twenty five thousand comics in his collection, so I can understand how something like this would happen, but he made reference to many of the comics that has shouldn't say many. A lot of the comics he had. He really hadn't read. It made me think about how we collect and the fine line between collecting and hoarding. It's a comic book collection bug that we sometimes get into we collect then sometimes we purge we sell everything off and rebuy again, and the cycle kind of goes on and on some of us like me, rarely purge, but also don't spend hundreds of dollars each month on comics. My budget just won't allow it. If I did have the money, I could see myself getting to twenty five thousand comics fairly quickly. Let's do the math though. Twenty-five thousand divided by say, thirty five years equals about seven hundred and fourteen comics per year. Divide that by three hundred and sixty five because of the days in the year and you get almost to comics per day. Now I'm not knocking it because if you can afford it in doesn't cause you to be late on your obligations by all means, do it. If you enjoy it, do it as long as it doesn't inhibit your ability to pay your bills. Carl, Eddie and Jeff over at the make you a great podcast, which is a mo- to podcast, highly recommend, talk about mini collections as far as figures go. I'm pretty sure Carl came up with the idea of the mini collection for the podcast. They like Motoo but aren't trying to get every figure that was ever made. They're looking for their favorites only in if they're collection gets too big, then they downsize it to keep in that mini category. They wanna stay in. I'm not exactly sure what number many stands for. I don't know if it's eight or ten or twelve, but it probably varies with each person on the podcast. But the idea though you get is to keep it small, I was talking to a local guy here who makes custom copies of old arcade machines. You know, the big ones used to see in the arcades in the eighties nineties. He does a fantastic job and Lee Baca from the last Assode bought a machine from him. I will put a link to his website in the show so you can find him and keep your looking to get a machine, give him a call. I think it will bring him in maybe to do a doing episode in the future. He's a really interesting guy anyway. He talks about the fact that he can make a machine that has hundreds even thousands of old games on it, so that person doesn't have to spend hours of their time and money trying to collect old video game consoles or the arcade uprights for me, that would be fine. I have no problem with playing all the games on one console, not being the original system or the. The original upright. However, some people do like the thrill of the hunt, they get joy from hunting those one or two figures or those issues that they want to add to their collection. They have no problem spending half a day flipping through long boxes to find what they're looking for. For example, on the RAD years podcast, one of the hosts squeezer collects old Ness cartridges. He can easily overpay and go on EBay and find what he's looking for. But he enjoys hunting garage sales and auctions and flea markets for the cards. He loved as a kid with comics similar when I buy tend to be looking for all the issues.
