6 Minute Update - Mike Dell's World

"And good morning. Good evening. Good afternoon. This is Mike, and this is Mike Dell's world, and this is not a test up Assode sorry about that little test Assode yesterday, but at test something, and I'm actually testing something today too. So this won't be a really long episodes either. But I figured I'd give you a proper episode or at least a proper short one. Can't really tell you what I'm testing and what I tried to test yesterday, which by the way was unsuccessful. So you noticed that up Assode has been removed from the feed now listening on Spotify. It's probably still there. But otherwise, it should be gone. And if it isn't gone, well, so be it. But what I was testing yesterday did not work, and that's okay. I probably be testing again. But I think I'll use a different feed for the for the next test on what I was testing. As what I'm testing today is artwork. So I'm going to have two different episode artworks in the feed. So I'm going to have one embedded in the MP three file, which I will have a I don't know what I'll put in there. I'll put something to to denote that that was from the. Eighty three tags in the MP three file, and then I'll have another one that's gonna denote that it came from the R S feed. So if you guys want to participate in my test, look at this episode on your device while you're playing it and tell me which of three images, you see do you see the one from the ID three tags? Do you see the one from the RSS feed or do you just see the plain old Mike Dell's world logo that's on every other episode? So anyway, it'll really help me out to figure out what goes where and in what apps do they work seems to be a topic of conversation. A lot amongst new podcasters for some reason, they wanna go through the extra work of doing that as you know, with me, I'm I'm I'm a lazy podcast or when it comes to all this. Stuff. I want to set it up once and not have to deal with it. Then when I record I just record when I'm done. I just upload when I'm done uploading. I just hit publish and then I'm just done. I don't wanna have to think about it so much, but since that is my business as well as my. A hobby. I have to learn stuff. So what better way than to actually try it out? So like, I said if you could just shoot me, a note one way or the other and tell me which piece of artwork you see for this particular episode episode three oh, eight of Mike. Dell's world. So not much has happened. It's three oh seven because that wasn't too long ago to weather's been interesting here we've had four and a half inches of rain since I don't know probably last four days something like that today. It's not raining, and it's not supposed to rain anymore today or any today. But man, we got just hammered. But funny thing was we were about four and a half inches short for the summer since June. I guess and so we made it up so right on track with normal rainfall. And normally the fall is wetter than the summer. So we'll see if we catch up and surpass but definitely four and a half inches of rain in such a short amount of time. They're still puddles around a little bit. And everything is certainly greened up. I'm gonna have to mow the. Alone. Even but should only had to do a couple of times this year. Just because it's been so, you know, so dry. It's the lawn looks fine. It's just wasn't been growing very fast. So. That's the way it is. But yeah, sorry for for the short episode, but I'm gonna cut this off about five minutes here and get a real episode out. When I when I test the other thing I was testing I will put out a full episode of oh, twenty thirty minutes. Anyway. As then I'll be able to maybe I'm not gonna be able to tell you what it is. But you might be able to figure it out one way or the other. So anyway with that at a record in episode of your podcast by blueberry this week. My guest host it's gonna be Sean Thorpe from our support team. So that'll be interesting Todd's on sinement. So we're gonna be recording that that'll be out Monday. We wish record early and then it goes out on on Monday morning sometime usually early, but sometimes delayed depending, but anyway, so yeah, check that out over at power press podcast dot com. And I won't bore you with more instrumental music that piece of music I played yesterday. It was called if I had a chicken, and it's from the YouTube creators library, so you know, it's free for all type music. But anyway. Yeah. Won't do that again. At least not anytime soon. Hey, we made it to six minutes. Catch me later.

Today. Our tale is called the spy lark. The story originally comes from Portugal in southern Europe. Some really great people came together to bring you our version of this folk tale, including Miriam shor grownups, you might recognize Miriam from the TV land show younger as well as the effects series, the Americans. She's also the proud mom of two young daughters. So circle around everyone for the skylark. When chorus two children grew up and moved away. She realized that her large house in the countryside had never felt so big or so empty so chorus sold the house and bought a smaller one. The new place was comfortable and charming, and though it didn't boast acre after acre of farmland as the old house had there was a small field right behind the cozy back porch. Cora took one look at that field behind the house and decided it would be perfect as a vegetable garden all she had to do was clear away the brush and trees it just so happened that chorus nephew. Daniel owned a landscaping company. Daniel was fresh out of college and had yet to settle down and start a family. He dedicated his heart and soul to his business often going weeks without a day off. So we're asked if he would help there's not much to clear from the fee. Just a lot of tall grass and wildflowers. Oh, and there's this little group of trees in the corner. But really it shouldn't take long not up problem and Gora I'm happy to help. I'll sudden one of my guys over first thing tomorrow. The next day Cora went off to her job as principal of the local elementary school. When she got home afternoon. Daniel was standing in front of the house his face as red as a beet. Daniel are you? Okay. What happened? It's your field. It looks exactly the same as it did yesterday. My guy didn't clear it Cora laid a hand on Daniel's shoulder. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for why the work hasn't been done. Come. Let's go find your worker. So Daniel Cora walked behind the house to the field. There stood the worker his straw hat in his hands. Well, what do you have to save for yourself? Why isn't the field cleared the worker looked down at his shoes with all due respect? Daniel I tried to do the work. I really did. But I couldn't every time. I raised my extra tree, I was tacked Daniel and Koro were taken aback attacked by whom the worker looked up at them sheepishly skylark Daniel could hardly believe his ears a skylark, but a skylark is a small harmless singing bird, how could a small harmless singing bird, keep a grown, man. Like you away from your work. I'm telling you, this was no ordinary skylark skylark was fair. Skylark was savvy. She kept diving at my head and picking at my face, my arms my legs. She wouldn't let me get anywhere near those trees. Daniel looked at Cora who shrugged her shoulders, then he turned back to the worker. All right. I'm sending you and two more guys out to the field tomorrow. I want the whole thing cleared by sundown as the worker drove away in his truck. Daniel shook his head and rolled his eyes. Believe at Ankara. I don't know why I hired this guy. Obviously, he has no idea what he's doing Cora reached out and gave Daniel a hug Daniel. I really don't think it's his fault. Something tells me things will sort themselves out. All we need to do is keep everyone away from the field for a little while. What do you mean keep everyone away? I want you to have your vegetable garden and Cora and besides you don't solve problems by avoiding them for a smile that her nephew. All right Daniel as you wish. Now, I need to go inside and call your cousin. He was having trouble with something as his mother. I promised him. We'd talk it through before dinner. The next day Cora went off again to work at the elementary school when she came home. She could hear Daniel yelling from behind the house as she crept back toward the field. She could hear what he was saying. We'll hear what he was saying too. After a quick break. Your circle round. We love writing new stories and putting them together as fun episodes for you to enjoy.

Welcome back to circle round. I'm Rebecca sheer today. Our story is called the Schuyler. When we left off Cora had hired her nephew a landscaper named Daniel to clear the field behind her new house. She wanted to turn the field into a vegetable garden, but when Daniel sent one of his workers to do the job. He couldn't the worker said he'd been attacked by a fishes skylark, and she wouldn't let him and his axe get anywhere near the trees. So the next day Daniel sent a few more guys and when Cora came home from her job as principal of the elementary school. She overheard him talking to his team. I don't get it guys. I just don't get it for the second day in a row. I tell you to clear this field and for the second day in a row. It isn't cleared. Every flower every blade of grass every tree is right where it was yesterday consumption. Please explain what's going on here. The workers exchanged nervous. Look one of them took a big gulp and spoke up or Sewri Daniel. But it was impossible to clear the field. It's skylark. She's piece of work. I tell you every time we raise it acts, she'd freak out dieting aheads pecking hands she's fast and she's furious. We couldn't drive away. Please forgive us. Forgive you. I should fire. You I should suddenly Daniel realized Cora was standing right next to him. Oh. Hi, and Corre. Hello. Daniel what's going on here? Daniel side you were field. It's still not cleared. The guys here say it was that skylark again, he turned back to the workers. Okay. If that's skylark is truly so ferocious. I'm going to send all of you back to the field tomorrow along with half a dozen other guys know ridiculous. Little bird is going to keep my company from clearing this field. Once the workers had gone home Cora made her nephew a hot Cup of tea. Daniel I'm telling you, it's going to be just fine. Just fine. How are we going to build you that garden if my guys can't even clear a few measly trees chorus smiled nephew? We are going to clear those trees, and we are going to build that garden. We just need to leave the field alone a little bit longer. The problem will. Vanish soon enough. No, avent's and Gora. But you really don't know much about the landscaping business. I'm sending more guys tomorrow Cora gave her nephew a peck on the cheek a whole right Daniel as you wish. Now, I need to jump on the phone with your other cousin. It was her first day at a new job. And I want to hear all about it. The next morning Koro went off to work again, she stayed a little later than usual. And when she got home, can you guess who was waiting outside her house? That's right. Daniel oh Gora. I'm so glad you're finally here. But I'm not so glad to share the news field. It's still not cleared. Oh, I know. Right. According to my guys, the skylark was back, and she attacked them more ruthlessly than ever this time. They tried throwing sticks at her rocks. Even but it was no use. She was too quick. Daniel dropped his shoulders and side. The bird has one aunt Cora. You'll never have your garden Cora smiled. Oh, I'll have my garden. Daniel the skylark will be gone in just a few days, then we can clear and plant Daniel wiped a tear from his eye. You really think so I really do. So Daniel told his workers to stay away from the field and come back in seven days. The sixth day was a Sunday. Daniel was determined to get some extra work done at the office. But core convinced him to take the day off and come over for breakfast. She made her famous cinnamon pancakes, a big favourite went Daniel was growing up. He used to visit Cora and her kids on Sunday mornings, and it all laugh talk and joke over piles and piles of chorus pancakes, this morning course, adjusted she and Daniel sit outside on the back porch. And as they poured their syrup and gazed out upon. Chorus field. Do you know what happened? They saw the skylark fly away. But she wasn't alone behind her flapping their tiny wings as fast as they possibly could worth three. Baby. Birds Daniel jumped up from his chair. What do you know, you were right and Cora, I'm going to call my guys and have them. Come clear your field today right now. No need to call them this minute. Daniel it's the weekend. Please stay and enjoy breakfast, Daniel hesitated. But then sat back down. He looked at his aunt with curiosity and Cora. I have to ask. How did you know the skylark would eventually leave Cora smiled? Well, Daniel it seemed to me that a creature willing to fight so hard to keep others away. Must be protecting something in this case her children. It also seemed that once the children are old enough to spread their wings and fly. She would do what she could to lead them to safety. Daniel reached over. And gave Cora a huge hug, perhaps what he'd said before was true. Maybe she didn't know much about the landscaping business. But she certainly knew a lot about the parenting business. And maybe just maybe someday he would too. Now, it's your turn think about a time. You had to be patient. Just like Daniel you had to wait until things worked themselves out. Find someone you like to have fun with family member of friend, and tell them your story, describe what you had to wait for how it felt while you were waiting, and how things turned out in the end, then ask them to tell you a story about being patient.

Look for it at your local bookstore, or you can go to Amazon, and I will put a link to that in the show notes of this episode, but before we get started, I want to tell you about my new show called Wayfair. I'm going to Lincoln in the show notes as well, and it's a longer format, then the space news pod. It's still going to have space stuff is still can have science stuff tech stuff was going to be long-form interviews in. It's going to be not only about space science and tech, but also about the people that are involved. In those industries, and also the Wanderers of the world, the people that have taken the road, less traveled, so to speak. So if you just have been that good onto the show notes, check out the wafer podcast and subscribed. Because the first step Assode is going to be Dr David worn flashes interview the full thing. So here is one of Dr David warm flesh. So you have a if a book coming out in its cold moon in illustrated history from ancient myths, the colonies of tomorrow, actually less. This is the woke ride. Here is solid Brock. You can use it as a paperweight as a door stopper by you could read it too, because one of the things about this girl here in the twenty first century Hebrew, all don't like get actual hardcover books so much has came here about the topics on the podcast. I might tell you, if you little stories from the book, but is the illustrated history. And now the whole idea as part of a series from sterling crass, and every, every little sections called her a moment has a. Has beautiful picture. And. Techs to go along with it. So here I randomly opened up to this. So this is from one of the early entries telling about a period of lunar geological time called the Eric tasks, tinian period, named for the Tostes crater instead of having a picture of the creator. I gotta take a painting of air tasks in ease for whom the craters named giving a lesson to student era. Tostes was the ancient Greek scholar. Vaki was the chief librarian of the great library in Alexandria, really cool. I didn't even those the kind of things that this is all about, right? Things that you don't even know about the b basically everyone knows that there is a moon. Louis look up at the sky, and there is a moon. What's the history of it? You know, like where did I everyone of those craters is named for usually the name for person from history, especially in the near side of the? Day goes back. Wait ancient times in the far side. So you get names like cratered, so cough ski for people came later because nobody saw the far side until ninety fifty nine. So if though there's tons of craters, there's thousands of craters up there. Do you have a favorite crater on the moon? I liked the starkest crater because the name for stark is one of my favorite people from ancient times news, actually the first half of my book is a lot of ancient history before we get up to approaching space age. And he's kind of a hero, maybe for the first third of the buck, he 'cause he makes use of the moon and he uses for something cool. He uses it to figure out that the sun is a lot bigger than her, and that, if the sun is figure than earth, and it doesn't make sense that the sun goes around her that earth must go remers son. Now's twenty three hundred years ago, and he did it using the moon using a coin held front of his face. And using little crow. Tractors native sticks? Get the angle to the sun or at a minute. Take a quick break. In wanna get back there's going to be more with. With Dr David warm flash. Hi everyone. I would've let you know about anchor dot FM.

Yeah. They've in protest before the natural philosophy. When was young, the ancient union philosopher, as you were people who lived in the well, we'd call the western coast of Turkey animals islands around there, Asia, Minor. They were Greeks, and they were the first Greeks to agree, Dr gauge, and that's where philosophy got started. And the philosopher who brought for last to Athens was Naxi gross. And this is really where, where we get the beginning of everything he tried tried. He studied to observe the moon and he realized that the moon is in a God, the sun's not a God. And he thought they were rocks basically, which isn't so far off. Let's say you're talking to a little kindergartener these said that the moon is a rock dead earth flung into space and the sun is a hob burning rock and that's why the moon shines by reflecting light. You know how differently would you explain that to finally a five year old six year old today? That the reason that up was because he also talked about how the moon originating, so there have been all these stories. But this is the first prototype scientific explanation of how the moon came to be he thought the earth had flung the moon into states, and that's kind of interesting because the Lenny a later in the la- by the late nineteenth century is when you first start to get a scientific discovery about how the moon originated and one of the early hypotheses about how the moon originated was from George Darwin son of Charles New Orleans, and he thought something not too far off from what it actually Gore's had said, say twenty four centuries before that he said that I had been in spitting really fast way faster than spinning today. And that kind of flown the chunk of hers Nantel out in the states. He all he's not the debt left the Pacific basin. Course today we know that, that couldn't be because. The shape of the continents than than shape of basins. Unheard wasn't was sane noisy years ago. George Darwin thought it had happened about fifty five million years ago. But we know that the Pacific Ocean was a lot smaller that, that long ago. Ken doll, his time, there was no theory of continental drift was no plea tectonics, so that being said, can you please elaborate a little bit on the creation of the moon? Maybe what it's made of how it came to be is very controversial. Arguing data right now to be controversy. You can do a whole series of podcasts on origins wound. It's a hot topic in one of the reasons, scientifically why we need to go back to the moon is because we haven't finished answering your question. I should just say before before talking about the origins of the mood about your audience. So there's something in the book for everybody, I've been able to talk about, I've been able to pull different angle on book, depending on what the audience is because it's a hundred moments from wound or history. So it's touched so many cards of human civilization. Virtually every culture has some history connected with the moon. So, well, I now when the month of Ramadan and Muslims are celebrating Ramadan because the only the lunar calendar to pure lunar calendar. And the reason there are lunar calendars is because ancient people needed to use them as a way to keep time. So they could track their say the records for agriculture whatever they were doing, but that's a pure lunar county. It's just looking at the timing of oh, we got a new cycle a Weiner psycho, we got. A waxing crescent. We got a full moon. We had a waiting crests in month after month in because of the pure winner calendar. So Ramadan in all the Muslim holidays, the move through the solar year, it can be it happening in may like it is this year, but the next year it'll be in way in April. It'll be kind of March before that annual run around the year, and, you know, get that with the Jewish calendar, which is a lunar calendar. But it's not a pure lunar calendar. It's a it's a newly solar calendar which also dates back styles of years that goes, all right back to the ancient Sumerians, and then the Babylonians figured out ways to get the lunar calendar in sync with the solar calendar. And it led to the discovery of a nineteen year cycle that puts the cycles of the moon and the cycles of the solar year in the sink. Nineteen years, and every two hundred thirty five lunar cycles. You get a repeat of the solar year. And that's why you'll say you won't have Hanukkah coming in July. He the lowest be it might be a little bit in November or December, but it's not gonna slip much beyond that, and that is the first part of the interview with Dr David warm flash. He's the author of moon an illustrated history from each at myths to the colonies of tomorrow. You could pick that book up at your local bookstore or on Amazon.

"Bite is a new series here on Scifi talk and the sci-fi Talk Archive podcast, and so parenting an apocalypse. It's it's not the same way we would do. It's either full interviews or a comment or question from passenger abuse time. Wise. It's about one to four minutes long on an average story when you when you live long enough all kinds of strange things happen. You're very right in saying that the Greek heroes were the original superheroes. In part because of the nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Playing Greystone Athena cartoonist and playing Vanni bar is, Parveen car, on manifest. They update us on their characters. Minus still 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 Cup pretty quickly skip ahead. A little bit, and so grace's a little more pregnant. We learn in that Percep- 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 is really nice. I Dunno it just like how just a term 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 Yeah. That's my favorite thing about her like she's definitely 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. Cool. Yeah. She's about it whereas Sunday's character does. Yeah. I. Texted her the other day after I'd rather race inscriptions like. Your. 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 is 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 for patients sometimes. They need to channel my integrase. Try. Not Quite. As graceful as grace how 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 like a bit of 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. 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. It's been hard challenging for us today because there's so many things that happened in season two and we don't WanNa realize reveal any of them because they're all spoilers. It's all very exciting and it's all very huge in you know even a small detail ready for saying that then you realize no wait I. 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 that don't necessarily you know. Close any doors as far as resolution of like the answer to the S it's just like we'll wait more questions and more questions. Look for manifest on NBC check your listings.

SyFy channel Happy Season 2 Episode 2 review - a little spoilerish

"Man. Hey, so you still don't have an imaginary friend. Nope. Not yet. Do you all and after watching happy want him to blow me if Assode too? That was funny. The scene was really it was really good, man. I'm this is a. This one was a little messed up, man. Guys named smoothie the do with the messed up by. Yeah. Working with sunshine. Tele? See my safe word has man. So episode to continues on with him trying to get money for his daughter to go to private chemical. She has an issues in public school forty forty grand a year. Yep. He's driving cab is. Him by which was which is great of being in the first episode a cab whose cabs anymore just taking Uber or lift. Of course, it's like a bright green Prius. So yeah. So yeah, he's just trying to get money, and we continue on from blast episode where he's he's I just disembowelling these guys for organs and kidney go for on the market, but one hundred grid. I'm swimming gold mine, so yeah, he's he's just taking. Body bar body parts. And then of course, the the daughter he puts in the fridge daughters. All like, oh, let's go get some food was supposed to have the mom dropped her off. Yet said she's these some time with you and mealy opened the fridge and just saw kidneys. Here's what have you? Yeah. So that was pretty good. And then, you know, so see I think what's happening is that she's growing up and happy imaginary friend is no longer her imaginary friend. I don't think she sees him anymore. She doesn't seem anymore because the thing is like she because she went through a pretty traumatic experience kinda see grow quick and growing up really quick he'd kind of lose imaginary friend, and so that was that was the whole thing. So he's out of touch with her because he was trying to give him suggestions of what to do with. Yeah. And of course, like in xactly since she's the kitty more, and she is. Pretty much the build a bear. But it was. Kinda lame horses. Let's go to the ponies OT off track betting. So yeah. That was a non gamblers. Yeah. Or regular people pair of mutual bedding this apparently, she's a wonder kin. She was picking by name for fancy. Yeah. She was good dilly with real money. Ruined. A look let's bet one hundred imaginary. And then it's like, and then happy, of course, this is a swear jar breaks jar. And then, you know, these girls trees in Krebs it from a tree and give it to them. Give it to them. That was pretty good. Yeah. It was a very interesting episode again he's trying to he's trying to be better. And this ridiculous daughter off. Exactly. And he's like, look you didn't hold up any of your promises. So might as well go into. Yeah. But you know, it's one of those things and then. Taking her own a job. Yeah. Not just add like he kinda push her too far just need more F ING money. You know, I'll find the money. Does. He need the pig. So his his addictions coming back, you know, the hall one with this spray. Mouthwash, the mouthwash spit them out. So yeah, I mean, I think he's kind of losing touch again from the first one, and then the the city ju from the first one he still needs kids kidney, and he gives them the addresses go pick up kidney, simple, simple pickup. Bring the kidney over here. There you go. Apparently, he didn't tell them about the kidney was still in somebody still tax. It's still attached to somebody. Just anybody. His brother, so spoilers. Yeah. Yeah. You you were teen. Explain happy without spoiler. You're literally watching our reaction or review on this one. So that's your fault. We're blaming this. All people put it in title, come on. So yeah, it's pretty much, and well he kinda doesn't he kind of. His do pretty much just threaten his daughter. That's probably something. Huge. Don't want to do with this, man. And setting off the first time I mean to try to get his daughter back. So it's yeah. This is it's one of those things where it's like. Okay. He went and gets the liver or whatever kidney right bring in a cooler brings back right on cooler, and then gives it to the city do well. So you think so you think so at the end it was like almost like a mini explosive like little mini bomb that of explodes guy's face. He was getting revenge for being setup in and gruesomely. Yeah. Yeah. And it's one of those things like. I love that. They put a lot of because I mean, if you take all the comedic stuff out of it. This is not a pretty gory. Violence, violent gory because in the first scene. It was him this battling somebody driving. I mean without without happy being in there, this it'd be pretty pretty almost like worse than like Walking Dead kind of stuff. So if you heat though that wanted to sitting juice so bad or in the face, you couldn't recommend couldn't break Nuys at that. And also he kept on trying to kill guy with the gun. To death with it. And then it were shot the other guy. So it was the problem is at the end somebody hurdle. This his daughter whose daughter was in the car, he left her in the car outside. I mean gun blaster loud. Okay. Dreaming and happy. We heard everything. So. Yeah. So he had a kind of come to fruition. Telling his daughter what he did didn't really tell her what it did. But he she would have been fine with him to be honest. But the thing is she also said is just tell me what you did. They what they backstabbed you took care of it. Yeah. But he wouldn't admit it to sure which is good because he doesn't want to her in that kind of thing. But it's probably that. She's she's also growing up maybe a little too because especially with all the all the stuff that's happened Christmas. She was objected. Yeah. Dan people. I love when they sit down and one Jewish kids. All like when my dad owns like, four laundromats and all that. And then she's like my dad killed Santa Claus. And then he's like were Jewish. So it was pretty it was pretty good. This episode was pretty good. I you said man the guy. So one of the one of the little side things is guy the guy there's a guy who had skinned alive. Yeah. Oh my God. You know, what you reminded me of one of those guys from attack tack on titan. Yeah. He looked like that. I it looked like that. And it's like is like kill me falling Nick Aeros smoothie because it has remember that's the main. That's the main great again. Yeah. Mega. So that's the main story on because this this season is Easter. So they're trying to make Easter grant again. Trying to make easy great again. And so so, of course. What's the smoothies movie? The guys like have you ever? Have you ever says try not to look at something? And then just stare at it and his is going all their own place. Jinchi? I it's pretty gnarly and duties. Yeah, he's he's back. He's I don't have a have a revenge bone in my body. Sure about that. But yeah. So yeah, this is crazy. It's happy every episode. I'm gonna say this is crazy. It's all crazy episodes. But like another a lot of killing. Knowns blown-up knows alone of this time, but Jewish guy. So I'm glad that he didn't. I think. Now, let me ask you, do you think he would actually kill that guy for the liver? If he didn't threaten the family. Yeah. I'll he he needed the money. And he does love his daughter even. That's not even though he's haunted with all his addictions. Yeah. Maybe not that one. Eventually, I think you see that thing is the brother because the brother was a match. So now they can use that breath yet for bingo hall, dead going harvest that Oregon, but yeah. We we see we see his ex wife and losing it. She she she's like she showed me witness. A lot of weird stuff in the first one, right? Yeah. That's crazy insect orgy. I was so if you haven't seen it there's no better way to describe it. It was like a latex. We're furry late buggy. Yeah. It's like a big it's one of those piles, but. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's weird. And she got caught up in it. And I think she's trying to. Drown her member? Lock a lot of it. Yeah. So keeps popping back up. The new boyfriend. Just gets thrown around. He's like, okay. I understand understand. I was like what? Yeah. Shot. No. His family got written. And you have some strange guy coming out of her property. Chris Maloney plays that rolls. Well, yeah, he plays. It really. Well, the dirtbag ex cop crazy killer. He's my idol. He's you know, I didn't. What other things I'm surprised that was never a comic book. It was oh Graham wars and look it up grant Morrison that it was a short series book. Okay. Yeah. It was okay. And they look that up now. So yeah, man, it was a crazy episode. I think well I mean, and it's going to push it up the next one, but the storylines still going is that they're trying to make eastern great again. And so apparently sunshine is trying because they said he said love is the cells, but death or violent cells enter that sells more so. Yeah. He believes he may Christmas better. Yeah. Last season. And now he's working on each Edinburgh on each running down the line. And then so we also sell that sunshine put a hit on. The guy. The thing is I think that he so the mob boss says give me Mucci Scaramucci humidity will give me give me out of here. Right. I think it was a planned. I think I think he was planned to do that. So he can be killed. Because remember he still has thing in that demon. That's where I wait for the demand to do something because the didn't do anything I think what happened was that scar? He's he's a mob, boss. He knows do time. Right. And I think the demon told the lawyer to make a deal, and then went back to Mucci didn't know what was going on. Now, he's getting get murder. So I think he wanted to get murder. I think there's something going on. Well, he reanimated nephew after death. So maybe they're going to jail. Yeah. The body will have to be going out and buried and maybe just gonna call. Yeah. Maybe I think so I think that I think that's that's how it's gonna kill old lady with. He didn't because he has more than one brother, right or? No. That the only kid I think it was the only one only tatters. Still living a better his kids. Yeah. Maybe you're never know. It's it's a weird one. That's they have like a couple of main main stories. The continue on from. From last season in the funny thing is that. Criminal or what's Maloney's character? Knicks accents, I don't he had nothing to do with the story line of the main storyline than the first one. He just got his daughter pretty much sunshine and the mob boss thing were separate stories that intertwine with his knee. They crossed over a little bit here. And that's it looks like this happening the same same thing with this season. So I think they're they're sticking with main stories, and that the end they're all going to come together as a as a as a crash if you ever seen that movie crash. So I'm pretty sure Nick's going to go back to his old habits. Oh, I'm pretty sure. Yeah. But I think daughter is fine with that. And the thing is I think she wants her dad it just what's her dad? So I think this is a really cool episode. But what do you guys think? What do you do you think? This was a cool episode or not coming down below. It helps us out and wire down there get that light button. Just a little smash Rusen hit that subscribe helps us out a lot at the Bill.

And I like that they don't put those like harsh ingredients from silicon's parabens all those things that I don't know how to say and no animal testing in their products.

But also makes it making it smell good given a little bit texture. All 'bout that life and unlike other dry shampoos on the market living proof doesn't just mask oil, sweat and orders.

That's free money right there. So go onto living proof dot com slash design with the promo code Suzanne for that free sample today Stevie you need to go 'cause you stopped using mine. One of my heroes told me God doesn't need a lawyer. Your job is to be honest. And that stuck with me that embodying honesty that it's my occupation. What is of good life? Fam-? We are back in the Piel de. Twenty nineteen y'all. I cannot believe that FAM. It's going to be an incredible year for all of us that clip you just heard by the way is a little snippet from our interview with switch foot. We were blown away by them by their character by the things that they had to say so stick around in the episode at checkout that interview they're really impactful guys as twenty nineteen. What the heck I'm my gosh. Can I just say I've missed doing this? And I knew that like taking time off I was going to like obviously miss doing coming into the studio. But I didn't realize I guess it was unexpected to see how many of our good life family listeners reshot who may be a Instagram DM U2. saying like where is the good life Wednesday up Assode. You guys are probably like what are you up to over there? I'm gonna tell you what we were up to ABSA fricken. Lutely nothing. You got it right near being L A's Z Y baby sitting on the couch potato chips. Well, not after the new year and watching lots of Lord of the rings, which says his fallen asleep and maybe ten times now hold on. Let me just backtrack. There. Okay. So we really did take the time off to rest something that we have been Parisians all season last year, and we really needed to practice that especially after the holidays really taking that time to unplug it was so necessary because we feel so recharged and refreshed and our minds feel renewed. And you know, it's funny because the conversation Ramle came up, I think one night I had said I had never seen Lord of the rings in Stevie just like he was we're going to watch the whole saga like you're gonna watch. And I'm not gonna lie. I was in such cosy comfortable mode like it probably took me four days to finish the first one because I kept falling asleep now because it was boring. But because I was it was so I gotta say we're talking about focus today. And when we we watch these movies, I need you to focus because you have fallen asleep. I think four times the first one I don't know what the second. I think it's because when I'm finally in that moment where I'm laying on the couch. It's because I'm completely focused on. On just that one thing in my mind is ready to relax, and I say that you fall asleep in the most pinnacle moments of the movie, and I'm just like all this is so important, and she's like, you know, it so we did take some time off. But I'm going to say we did take the month of January to actually reprioritize and reorganize our house. How many of you out there declutter d-, where's the declutter fam-? I used to be so paranoid about getting rid of things. 'cause I thought you know, what I'm gonna pass this down one day or I'm going to use this one day. I got rid of everything donated it. I knew if I wasn't going to don't look at it. I didn't need it anymore. We don't entertain you, sweetie. Teeny. Can we tell them what she did teeny started walking fam-? She started walking over the freaking Christmas break in. So now going into twenty nine thousand we've got to walk in kid, and I'm like slow your brakes. It's true. What everybody says out there when your kid starts walking that just changes the whole game. I didn't believe them. But now I do because I've seen it. She goes up the stairs. She goes everywhere. And she just does not want to sit still and she's just in that bays. But it's been so fun to watch her grow. And literally just a short time short month. The last time we recorded good life. Teeny was not walking. She was sleeping when we did that show the recording in our house. Okay. So what was your New Year's resolution, babe? How's that going with your thirty? It's going pretty well, y'all. I started whole thirty. I think I'm about a week and a half in right now. It's going really, well, I have to say cheated on my birthday birthday. Yeah. It was last week. But it's going really, well, I think sticking to this this thing and really setting that focus that I'm going to reach this and finish this which is a big thing for me in finishing something like that. It just setting the tone for my year. It's giving me a fresh perspective. And I'm loving it. So far, I've got lots of other goals, but we can talk about that later because today is all about focus. Yeah. And a lot of us have set our New Year's goals, baby. What is yours? My New Year's resolution. Give me one Tang. I have a lot. And I don't know what I've said on previous show. So I don't want. Somebody would be like yo you said you were going to do this. And now, I think one of mine was to stick with my quiet time in the morning and even on the weekends. I got up at six AM you've been doing that. I have because I look forward to it. I never thought I would be that person that sets my alarm at six AM and looks forward to getting up. Honestly, I'm not human. I think I realized sums wrong with something is wrong. Which literally laying in bed tonight. She goes. Give you see him nap with me. That same creepy voice in the room said girl, some days, you boyscout asleep till seven relaxed heaving Santan giving. I'm on one. I swear I'm loving my six AM. It's my it's my me time all of that. But you know, what something that Stevie? And I have had to really focus on is just the areas in our life that we really want to focus like if you think of like, a, you know, we're going to get super blogging up in here. But you know, when you have a camera and the lens, and it seems a little blurry picture that lens being set on all the different areas of your life. And I noticed like I really want to click the focus ring a little bit more on certain things and certain areas of my life. So for us we've really had to tune into this idea of small focus steps because they lead to big sustainable results. And I've just always struggle with that. And so one thing being our business Stephen I have worked together for over five years now. And he's we was there. He helped me start this whole journey become the successful digital influence or doing it fulltime. But I think it was recently. Last week when we just had a serious conversation at home in bed and sa- first time we're talking about this now, but we just realized that there are certain areas of our life that we wanna feed nurture being our personal life our marriage. We want to get more time and attention to that. And we just feel like sometimes when we worked together in the blogging sense when he takes my photos when he helps edit videos when he sets up camera when he goes and travels with me on blogger trips and things like that we realized that this might be the year where we both need to focus on different areas of our business. Meaning I would be on one side of our business and Stevie would be on the other not to create a sense of divide, but to create more of a unity in the other areas of our life where I feel like we take for granted. And so with that being said Stevie, why don't you tell them what you're cooking up this year? Did you even hear what I said? But I was just seriously going in right now, I knew you weren't listening to me. What are you doing picking your butt over there? Sorry. No. I remember when you were saying I was a little distracted shot down dump blame Sean was doing the Squidward noodle dishes behind the glass. And it kind of threw me offers second Lord. Well, in a nutshell, I told them that you're working on another side of the business, and we're kind of parting ways, of course, no. I'm very excited about this year. It's going to be your stretching us kind of growing both of us in areas where we've dependent on each other. But also areas that have caused tension for so for me, I'm really excited to grow my personal brand. I'm going to be putting up more pictures and videos and things like that on Instagram. I want to have a better report with you guys on social media fam-. Also, I've got a couple other business things. I can't really tell you guys talk to your manager. One of them is pretty it's pretty teeny on the grand scale. So that's a little bit going to draw that to say that Stevie, and I were setting some new goals for this year in our business in our personal life. And even though Steve is not going to be setting up. The camera for me when I'm doing my YouTube videos, and he's not going to be editing. All those videos for me anymore from the outside perspective. You guys what you guys see looking in. You're not gonna really notice a change. But internally we're having to like change some things up. If you guys saw I was hiring online. I think we've found somebody now, but we're looking to hire in different areas. So that Stevie, and I can salvage the parts of our life that we feel like have just burnt out or crumbled at times. So we're excited for this new year, and it's going to be I'm gonna miss that. You're not gonna go to every trip with me every work trip. But I'm gonna miss you. Thing is no matter what at the end of the night will always meet back in bed and hang out and watch Lord of the rings. Oh, well, the thing is you guys. I've told you this before TMI, but your boy usually sleeps with nothing going on. And I used to sleep with this really great comfortable pair of sleep shorts from Ralph Lauren, but I don't know where they are anymore because I lost them. But the point is is that I've upgraded y'all. I got some got myself. Some Luna sleepwear guys. This stuff is made from Lux washable silk. So I'm not worried about any sorta catch in grab in uncomfortable situation. This is the only thing that I will sleep in other than nothing because it is that comfortable, well, you lucked out because they had this men's holiday collection situation going on on their site. And it was kind of like this limited edition thing. It seems an literally all of the men's stuff is right now currently sold out. I know this because my dad. Keeps texting me. This is a true story. And he's like when Luna restock will you let me know because he's really into like just good quality, not only sleep sleepwear. But something that you can take into your everyday active where that's like my dad's style chloe's really bummed about to y'all because it's like do I have to be dainty with this stuff. Now, it's not high maintenance all you can wash this stuff in the washer. It's not a big deal. And also what's nice about it? I get super hot when I'm sleeping usually. And this has actually helped keep me cooler. It's weird you're wearing something more. But it's keeping you more cool. So if you guys haven't checked out Luna give it a try. It's an excellent product. And it got lots of girl stuff on there. Right now, the stuff also now, but ladies, we got the hookup for you. All you gotta do is. If you want to go on to Luna dot co. Oh, okay slash Suzanne. You're going to get fifty dollars off your first purchase. And I'm going to spell it for you in case, you can't think of it. It's L U N Y dot co CEO. Slash Suzanne for that fifteen dollars off our at y'all it's time to get focused. So why are we talking about the importance of staying focused focus is the key to an effective life. If you spread your energy out and defuse it over a whole bunch of things we've learned first hands as an eye that you'll make little impact there's a story about an archery teacher, he put a wooden bird as a target, and he asked his students to aim at the eye of the bird, the first student was asked to describe what he saw he said, I see the trees the branches the leaves the sky the bird, and it's I. Then he asked the other student, and he said, I only see the eye of the bird and the teacher said, very good. You can shoot the air went straight and hit the eye of the bird. The point of this story is if you focus your life, it can be very powerful, it can even change the world. I really love that story. When you think about it? You know, it reminds, you know, our our one of our pastors actually our pastor Rick Warren that we've been going to he he says it best I wrote it down because he says the secret to an effective life that you're talking about is focus. So don't try fifty things that you dabble in. He says, no what's most important in do those things and don't worry about anything else. I feel like we can totally testify to that. And so many times my life where I feel. Like, I've had to do it all so we feel if there is one thing for today's show, the key to helping you grow out of a distracted mind and into a purpose filled. Focus mindset, it is this. Okay. Just this one seed that I want you guys to plant into your mind. Can you guess what it is? Well, if you plant this into your mind today, I have a feeling it will renew the way that you think and you can start on that journey of living a focus purposeful life. Okay. Listen to this focus on your purpose. Not your problem when you stay focused on your purpose. Not your problem. You can be happy even when life seems to be falling apart. That is so powerful to me Paul was Paul in the bible was an old man when he was in prison in Rome. He was a long way from home. He was awaiting execution. Ev. Everything has been taken from just imagine that his friends his freedom his ministry, even his privacy with a guard chain to him twenty four hours a day. It wasn't exactly a happy ideal time for Paul. I guess you could say, but there was one thing they could not take away from him. And that was his purpose. Paul made the choice that he was gonna stay focused on his purpose. Even when he lost everything else. All the problems came in the in the mix. So what was his purpose? His purpose was serving God by serving others Paul says in full leash pretty say that Steve I always I always I always screw it up. Filipion? I wanna say I want to say allegiance. Okay. Paul says in Philippi Athens. I don't think I wanna say Ryan sleeping. Okay. Why don't you actually why don't you read that scripture right there that I wrote? Clearly, mice exam quiet time. I need to focus a little more. Go ahead. Beans one twenty to twenty five if by continuing to live, I can do more worthwhile work than I am not sure which I should choose. I am pulled in two directions. I want very much to leave this life and to be with Christ, which is a far better thing. But for your sake, it is much more important that I remain alive. I am sure of this. And so I know that I will stay I will stay on with you all to add to your progress and your joy in the faith. Talk about focus. Well, you know, it's amazing. What he says there? And it's just like I mean, again, he was in a really hard time. He could have said anything, and he really chose to focus on his purpose which was again serving God by serving others. And he knew what he needed to do in that moment he needed to step down from his selfish ways and serve others. I want you guys to remember this. You cannot control what other people do to you. I wish somebody told me that because for my life for so many years, so many people controlled my path my purpose my destiny, my vision, my fuel all of it. No that you also you cannot control what other people do around you. So comparison looking and seeing what he or she is doing how her life is their purpose their life, you cannot control that so stop doing that. Right. I want to take a break there because you know, with this this whole idea about focus. It's how it pertains to all of us. I believe some of us. You know, we see the eye of the bird Balat. Of us. Maybe we don't see the tree in the sky and everything else in that story. But maybe we see the eye of the bird and the tree is still there. And we can't stop seeing the tree as we're looking at the eye of the bird. And what is that thing that you can't stop looking at that is distracting your focus from the I which is which would should be your focus. I remember I was at the gym just the other day, and I was working out and a guy walk past me who was incredibly good shape, really, really incredibly good shape. And I was like, whoa. That guys ripped like he's this. And that and I was like I I don't think I'll ever look like that. And it wasn't coming from a position of putting myself down. But it was just like different body type. You know, just totally different look, and I think, you know, sexy when I look at you at the gym, Charlie. But the point is is that looking at somebody else pulled away from the strength that was able to put into what I was doing in that moment. Because what it was saying is that you'll never be something else that you want to be or that you think is success. When in reality. I said this many times last year showing up is the beginning of success just getting there and stop focusing on a have to do it. Perfectly a half to do this way. It has to look like this show up and go after what it is. You're going after and don't get distracted. Alexa, isn't the only one with breaking news.

They will continue to come. What you can do is you can focus on and control how you respond. So in that moment at the gym when you know Stevie you were looking at this other guys progress in his fitness goals, not knowing his path in his journey. You know, you you notice this moment of like, it kind of took your strength away, and you were distracted. It's how you choose in that situation to respond that allows you to come out on top. So how did you respond after that? Did you continue workout? Did you quit? What you do? I'm so glad you asked me because really in that moment. I felt my my strength leave me. It's almost like when you're focused on something. He put your strength and your effort into it. But as I was distracted discouraged my effort in my strength was drawn in another direction. And I did respond says I thought to myself that is making me feel weak right now that's making me feel like I'm not enough. That's making me feel like my. Journey is invalid and I had ice. I prayed sa- God helped me to focus on the things that matter helped me to focus on being a better me. And that's why I'm here. Well, so when all else fails, and you don't know what to do in those moments. You can pray. I love and y'all give yourself the benefit of the doubt start believing in yourself a little bit more instead of looking at opportunities to fail. Look at opportunities to succeed. And like you said a lot of the times we're focused so much on the finish line that we don't even just walk up to the starting point. And I've said this before and I'm gonna keep saying it because we're living in a time right now where you're just distracted. You wanna just you want the shortcut answers or you just you want to wait. You know, like you're just like, oh, I'll figure it out. I'm not ready yet. I'm not there yet because you don't see the full picture. But it's like sometimes you do see a glimpse of your purpose. And that right. There is a focal point for you to just draw. So in and to focus, and I feel like when we were talking about what we wanted our first show of the year to be about to be honest with you there's pressure there. I was a little intimidated. I was like we're going back into the studio. I'm an all or nothing kind of girl. This better. Be freaking amazing. I gotta bring it to them. We gotta bring it to our peeps. But you know, what I had all these ideas are out, and I just ended up just telling Stevie, you know, what we could easily do a whole like new year. New you episode ten ways to get those goals checks off your to do list. But you know, what y'all I feel like January. I've said this on my g recently January is the first born month of the year. And if you need if you are first born out there, you know that carries weight it carries pressure. There's just these heavy expectations that we put on our selves sometimes as the first born, and I feel like January is that month. It's like you're coming out of the holiday, blues and instantly. You're like, I gotta go one hundred miles per hour. I'm sticking to my New Year's resolution this diet. Thing this whatever it is. But then what happens a lot of the times halfway through. We end up disappointed or we we fail and it's because going into the month of January. Did you get your focus? Right. Did you renew your mind going into this new year and prepare yourself, I strongly believe that God gives us different seasons for a reason. And there are going to be slow seasons in your life. Where you're not seeing the, you know, the benefits of everything that you've sown too. You know, there's going to be seasons of life where you're just seeing like the plant growing, you're seeing all of this rich harvest, and there's a reason that we go through these different seasons of life. So I want to encourage anybody out there who has goals in your trying to just focus on your path in stay the path. Just remember that you don't have to have it all figured out today. And you don't have to see it all grow this month. Some of you have just laid the foundation. For these things in your life. Okay. In laying the foundation that's a lot of work in itself. So trust the process water the seed, and I'll know that it's gonna take seasons to see that seed grow, and you have to constantly water and be patient patient patient patient. That's something that I'm really focusing on this year in every area of my life. And so I want to encourage you that embrace the different seasons of your life. And just because things are quiet right now that doesn't mean that you lose sight of your purpose, and that you quit focusing on that and you feel like, oh, I've got to go do something else. Ninette like stay the path. And I felt like I needed to say that here's a few tips y'all that are going to help you keep a focus mind moving forward this year. And these are things that says on and I strongly believe in and are strongly trying to practice in our own little nuggets. The first one is if you change your brain, you can change your life Sazan, and I changed our morning routine last year this. Physical change led to a change in our mind, and led to a change in the way that we think led to a change in the way that we approach things personally for me. Twenty teen was the biggest year of growth because I felt like I was stuck in that rut that we talked about, but I was able to change my mental pattern by putting in putting physical action behind it. And when you put physical action things begin to change this thirty day diet that I'm doing I'm already only about ten days in already noticed how it's changed the way. I think about the way I approach certain things that I thought were advice to me. And I'm like, you know, what I don't have to do that. I can do something else an aid your brain. And other thing is the urgent is almost never the most important thing. So let's say like you are on your path, and you're focusing on whatever that thing is for you. And all of a sudden a matter comes up in your life. And you're just like, you know, what I can't work out anymore or I can't go after this goal anymore. You know, what I was going to start a blog, but I'm just not going to do it anymore. Because there's this more urgent thing. I should be doing know that nothing is more urgent than when you have a purpose in your heart that you're being called to do. And if you can just remember that when the baby starts crying or you're like, you know, what I can't. I just got a quick my goals because this is urgent whatever that urgent thing is no that it's almost never the most important thing. Number three guys goals. Focus your energy. So choose them wisely. But don't wait around too long. Make a decision and stick with it. Okay. And know that a goal when you do make one it's usually very specific measurable and timely. Okay. So you're not just gonna make a goal and just be like I'll my goals, I'm going to invent something one day just like be really really successful. I mean, let's be practical. Let's break that goal apart be specific measure it out be timely. And lastly, this is a really important one. Because it's going back to the example that I was talking about earlier in the gym Switzer, focus to what God thinks his opinion is the only one that matters instead of being distracted by what others think even some of the things that you tell yourself. Maybe you say I can't do that. Or I'm not good enough. Stay the path who God as your compass and your guide because he'll tell you who you really are. And so in moments where you get distracted, and you feel like, oh, well, never measure up to this personal. Never be that pray and say God helped me focus on what's important, so good. Yes. All right, y'all. We've got switched foot in the building. Today. Suzanne, and I are huge fans grew up listening to these guys were so excited. But their message behind this new album is what's really making an impact. And you wanna talk about staying the path and staying focused. I think they've got a finger to say about that. Here's a sample from their latest song from their new album native tongue. All right, guys. You've got Jon and Tim foreman from switch foot here in the studio with his guys. Thank you so much for coming in to the good life. Hey, thanks for having us. First of all says, and I have to get this out of the way. Oh god. What are we getting? Well, when you guys hit the scene we were like in middle school and we were hard core like switch. Switch with fans. I remember just bumping all the stuff here. And you guys I in through member and like man's all these songs are so good. Oh, yeah. You guys ever get tired of those those references pro Jerry to move. And you're like, no there's more than that. The first that I ever heard. So it was instantly one of those songs like you just never forget it. It was so catchy. So good. You guys. I mean, if we asked you do you have a favorite song that you've atop a topless come on? I always say it's my favorite song this owner. I wrote yesterday because for me it feels like a and I love I loved area to move. I replayed it a couple of hours ago, and it still has this meaning to to us that is feels transcendent feels bigger than than us. But I think as a songwriter, you're always looking for the next thing. The next thing it like Tim said earlier, it's you wake up the next morning and see if he's still liked the song, right? Yeah. Totally. I think it's a little bit like trying to pick your favorite kid, right? Like, you can't really have a favorite kid. But maybe on a certain day, you do like, okay. You're definitely my favorite kid today. I can't say it on a podcast. But I can totally see that. That's so true. I mean, we'll find out and we have baby number two. I guess so you do have a favorite kid right now. Tina's number one guys. But we'll see what will happen. So what we're really talking about today? You guys are releasing native tongue which is out January eighteenth talk to us about this album and the meaning behind native tongue because there's a meaning behind it. Yes. So it's two thousand nineteen and it feels like the languages that. I hear spoken. Most often are the languages of fear and hatred and division and all of the things that that that we hold in in difference between us, and those are the things that we are focused on. And for me. Maybe it was holding my s-. My son is six months old talked about getting up with him in the middle of the night. You know, that that experience of holding this helpless little life, and realizing that that's where we we all come from somebody. Your foster parent, your mom, your dad, grandma, whoever it was got up in the middle of the night to comfort you to calm, your fears to give you food sustenance that that language of time and devotion. That's why we're here. Right. So underneath our divisions. There's common language that we have. And that that is love. And so this album is a diverse collection of song that is meant to focus on the idea that hatred is not our language fears, not our language love is our native tongue that is so good. And it's encouraging because I think nowadays a lot of people, and we even have moments where you know, fear just comes into your life, and it just takes over. And then here comes the doubt in the worry. And I think a lot of people. They rely so much on say our government or a certain person in their life to feed them to fill them with joy security. And when I heard this song for the first time, I. Just really felt that message about love. And that really being the key word because I think it's easy to forget that it's so simple yet. It can be so complicated for some of us to grab onto that love really is the native tongue, you know. So I I loved that. I even being the youtuber that I am. I don't know if you guys ever read like some of the comments, you know, in the in the video, but I was intrigued because I wonder what people think, you know, and you guys up released it back in October of two thousand eighteen and some of those comments that I read from your switch Cam. I wrote them down on homework. Somebody said, it's different. And different is good. I love that. Another person said, this is exactly the kind of thing. I was hoping for new fresh dynamic and thought provoking and other person said so happy switch foot is back. We need you guys more than ever in the times. Face. And in the last one that I love said this video this song. I can't get enough of it. It makes my heart feel all lit up inside. I'm feeling so recharged and inspired. I'm so thankful for you five guys in your God, given gift can't wait to hear more. What a blessing God keep using switch foot? Oh, I just how does that? Make you feel when you hear all of these this. Baseball. How does that make you guys feel when you see that like when you pour your heart into sort of this album and the song like what is it like hearing that from the public? Oh, it's amazing. Yeah. Making an album is such a bizarre rollercoaster of emotions because you're tapping into the most personal aspects that you don't even know about yourself. You're trying to unearth things and learn and and kind of get at the stuff beneath the surface, and then put that into a song and then to release that can be the scariest thing in the world. Here's the stuff. I've never told anyone. Was that a good idea? And I think we we met yesterday. We got our whole team the band everyone together and everyone's been working so hard. I mean, just trying to make sure that everything's the is are dotted T's across on. But really what you're hoping to do is something beyond the music. You know, that that you're with this album in particular, you're hoping to open the doors and the windows of the soul to see something beyond yourself you hoping that that would be the experience for the listener. And that's something you simply can't do with just plugging guitar. And you know, it it feels like you're you're actually, you know, calling upon the transcendent maker to kind of seeing through what you're doing an informant something beyond. What is humanly possible, you know? And so I don't know there's something about beautiful about releasing it and saying well. This is honest, and that was my job. And we'll see what happens from here. They're all my brides to be out there. Maybe you're trying to focus on planning your wedding. Maybe putting that registry. Together, maybe planning to buy a new home. Well, I remember when Stevie and I were engaged and we were trying to plan our wedding.

He said I s you've ever where you're just washing on the way here an interview, they they did remember that. And they said something so good. You guys were just talking about how you know. The interview was asked about house in being in a Christian ban, Johnny. We're talking about how you know. I wouldn't call us a Christian ban all this. But I just love your authenticity. And the message that you always bit as been a message for all, you know, which is what you guys said that Christ was about. And I believe that as well as at Christ hung out with everybody, you know, it's not this inclusive thing it's like like even with native tongue. Is it love is how all of our language, you know, and love is the gateway for people that don't have an understanding each other to come to an understanding because hate will never bring us their disagreement in arguing will never bring us here. It's love that brings all of us together. And I and I love that so much my question for you guys is with this album in this new vision for what you wanted to say, how did you bring? That and of fresh new sound because this has a different sound from other stuff that to me is like how did you stay focused on bringing this mission? We're talking about focus today and in the rest of the podcast bringing this mission in this words people but also bringing in like a fresh new vibe. Yeah, that's a great question. It's interesting because you look back on an album, and it seems a lot clear in the rear view mirror as to how things happen. But I think our goal when we first began kind of chasing these songs a rather being chased down by the song. It was just joy you talked about fear being a horrible engine or gasoline. Fuel whatever fear. Fear is I think joy is the antidote. Because joy is is an incredible. It's an incredible feeling motivator. It's a fuel that burns clean. And it can only be found in the moment. You can't. You can't have future. Joy right now. You can look forward to something. That's happening. That's thing. You can look back at a beautiful moment. But right now, there's joy available to us. And I could be in a sour mood and completely deny that joy. Or I could recognize it for what it is. And I think the for both lyrics and for the melodic takes that this album began to to shape up into. I think joy was the fuel for both of those both of those elements. What what brings you joy? Yeah. Especially in the creative process where you have to sit down, and you got flesh this thing out and come up with how these songs are going to work out in everything. I mean, I look even just looking next to me. And I see this brother that I have been in a bandwidth for eleven albums. Now, you know, and that is that's a gift. I think our my my kids bring me joy surfing. We served a lot on on while we're making this album and music itself. If you are present to it it if you're missing the joy as a professional musician, probably time to pursue a different occupation. You know, I think a moment that comes to mind as we were rolling out some of the first songs off this record. We were off the road for the last year something we've never done, and, but we did have these two shows in India, and we we had just finished recording native tongue and we went over there and we played a couple big festivals. And and it was mind blowing. But then we went to mind-blowing for us not saying where my glowing who's my going shows mind blowing people's minds anyway, welcome in. Then we went to Bangladesh just to kind of learn and explore and and we met this this disband in this village way, kind of outside of Dhaka and. We don't speak. We don't share any not even a word, right? The common language, and we're listening to them play. And not only do not understand what they're singing. I don't even understand the music. I mean, it is so complex. So the timing that the rhythm change. It's unbelievable. And then they pass us a couple instruments, and we had some of our own instruments, and and we start playing native tongue. Well, the first time that we've ever played it. The full story's. I'm like, Tim, we should go. We should play play thong with them. He's like horrible idea. That's really a bad idea. Let's just try it like a thousand ways. This could go wrong. They're logging. I don't think in the bed so disrespectful. Why would we play on song? And and that was the common language that we share was music, and and then they started playing along to the song, and it became this wild version. Probably the best version I've ever heard of the song. And and there was love being expressed through their eyes and ours, and and the notes that were playing, and then there were no words said at the end of it, the singer of this Bangaladeshi band of this incredibly cool, dude like looks like somewhere between James Brown. The Rolling Stones like just like stylish epic great voice, or you're like, how come how can we get this guy huge in America because this guy's amazing anyways. He he just comes up to me. And he gives me like seven hugs in a row and just looks in my eyes. And no words, we didn't say thing. But it felt like it was embodiment of the song. Love is our native tongue. You know? And I feel like as brothers we fight and as a band we fight because we're passionate about the songs, we both have different ideas. I mean, you guys are talking about that. Asking them. You know, when we both have sort of different ideas for the good life. You know, how do we meet in the middle? Do they ever disagree as brothers and family? So yeah. And you do think the thing that we've come to is is not the disagreement is actually a beautiful thing. It means you both are passionate you both care, and that's a beautiful thing. And the if you can find a way to fight fair than there's probably a synthesis that you will reach that's going to be better than either of your ideas. And it's just the tension the conflict the frustration and the minute is is like bummer, but if you can get past it, you know, I think that was the goal the record. What what I from somebody who's, you know, a music consumer listener, whatever from my perspective whenever I hear a song. That makes me think I always then think well, what are the artists mean to say by this was there a real message behind this that they actually. Felt themselves instead of somebody else just saying, hey, sing this. And here's a hit or whatever. I remember says on took me to see one of my favorite artists staying in New York City a couple years ago, and that was one of my favorite things ever. But what I was when I loved about staying which made me love him even more was before almost every song. He would stop and tell a small story and now about as a songwriter he wanted to tell stories, and that's why has it's amazing body of work. But the story that you just told us is the story behind in the fuel and the joy in feeling behind the song that you just put out. And so I find that incredible. And I appreciate that so much because a lot of times as listeners we wonder what do they really mean? Some so glad that there's a story like that behind. And that's the fascinating thing about a song. Is that there's a story that drives the song? Right. But then you put the song out there, and it has a life of its own and news stories are made because the song is now. Out there living, and breathing and people will come to the show and tell us what the song means. Yeah. And that's valid. We just heard a story in the hall about a record the beautiful letdown where? People would make out in in in the car that that album, and they get in trouble, the nuns, and I'm like that story. That's not maybe the intention of right? The album, but that's beautiful. Thank you for telling me that story. And there is something to powerful, you know, for me, you know, when I first started hearing your music, I was so young obviously. But I wasn't. I wasn't even a believer. At the time. I didn't have a relationship with God. I just it was so powerful just hearing your songs, it it still moved me. It still did something in me that maybe I didn't necessarily understand. But it just stuck with me more than say other songs out there other artists, and that just I feel shows just the power of God. And I feel like he moves in just everything you guys have done, and that you continue to do because you know, we've seen so many artists as you guys have that had their moment. Right. That you know, they were killing it on the charts and all that. But it's almost like there, isn't that longevity? There isn't that sustainable success? And I just feel like the underlying thing that just continues to really work in your favor is that I just see God. God all over it to be honest with you. And then meeting you guys here today. I'm having my sappy mom moment. I just feel like God is so he it's refreshing. It's refreshing to see like God is literally right here with you. I can see them in your eyes. You guys love God, you love people and what you're doing with your music. It goes beyond just the numbers and the success and the fame I can genuinely tell it's because you guys wanna fill people up with just love and truth. And I feel like we need more of that today. So it's just refreshing. And I have my I get my one moment in the show where I can be the sappy, mommy, and that's that's my. That's that's incredible. Lease made my day you guys. And I'm going to know, you know, what I I'm sure switch fam-. Good life fam- all the fans. Everybody wants to know you guys said you were gone almost I mean a little more than a year ago. And that's like, oh, whoa. New album. What's what's going on? What is the future? And what is the future mission for switch foot? That's a great question. I think. It was the scoop baby. Well, the funny thing is this whole journey has not been masterminded that it's simply putting one foot in front of the other. I mean, I'm the singer in the band because we didn't know anyone else to sing the songs that I wrote, you know, it was like, okay. Well, I guess I'll sing them it worked out. But I'm saying like like, I think some people want to be on stage because they they love that. And I had to figure out like I used to hate playing music live on stage because I'd rather just be in my bedroom songs, and I had to figure out like how do I how do I do that? And I think for us. It's it's always been that like, well, I believe in the song. And we've got another one let's go out and play it. You know, I think the goal has always been for the songs to be famous, and I could care less. If people know anything about us, and and so the future is as. Undecided. As has always been as like well. Let's see let's play another song. Let's let's ride another one. I there. One of my heroes told me God doesn't need a lawyer. Your job is to be honest. And that stuck with me that it's embodying that honesty that is my occupation. And then wherever that takes us is the byproduct of honesty, you know. Good. I love that. So it's decided you guys didn't say that you're going anywhere. But you also didn't say that you're saying either. So everyone's down the road. All all we can guarantee you that this album Zahle January eighteenth called native tongue and you guys are also hitting the road in February. Correct. That's right. We are that is definite.

Episode 103: Current Events 10/18

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome event. Let's go. Thank you for tuning into the crypto Streep. Podcast here are host to trends and. What's up. Everybody. Thanks for tuning into night tomorrow, whatever. Whenever you're listening to this to the crypto SRI podcast, this is Dale so to say, you can kind of remove the crypto del out of my name since I've been thrown in jail by the Twitter police for the time being, but just killer nights night prince's off doing some Canadian things. We don't really know what kind of convenient that marijuana was legalized today in Canada and prince's non here, but. It's out of our control. Right? We're not saying they're related, but probably related. What's up killer. How's it going tonight? Good, man. It's interesting being here just the two of us. I don't think we've done enough Assode just off sue before, but we're looking forward to yapping up a storm. 'cause we're gonna you guys, if you don't like our ideas, you're going to be super sick of them by the end of these or the end of this. So yeah, so just sit back, enjoy the ride and like you said, Princeton, I've done one together alone. Think we interviewed godson you in prince have done several on your own without me. So that's gonna be pretty interesting. I think we'll be all right. 'cause people that don't really know us when we talk and in our chats or whatever on telegram and texting killer. It usually seemed to be about a thought, you know the same same thoughts running through our mind every single time. So kind of kind of funny and kind of scary. So let's cut the shit jump right in the talk about this by ans- chain now, asus implementation. So whatever people will, people might not know if if you haven't read anything. About this this chain now versus probably saying wrong. But so what they do is is they've got a KYC in k. y. t. software that binary choices is really, really starting to roll out this share, what does the monitors each transaction in real time. It's it's really designed to help with the anti money laundering regulations that really are. You know, with the the big thing, I think that people are worried about. So killer dive in kinda say what you think on this? Yes. So we're talking about this in our chat by Nance was sort of the last bastion of KYC free exchanges that were open to US residents, and that's the is a little bit too good to be true at this point cryptos in two under the microscope, it's too in the public eye. And I mean all these exchanges where you can sign up with an Email and submit US dollars or. Probably going by the wayside and by Nance was one of the longest holdouts, but now they're, you know, they're coming home to pasture. The US government's probably knocking on their door saying, hey, like what are you guys doing to know the identities of the people trading these assets? Many of which are probably securities. What are you doing to track this money? What are you doing to make sure there's no anti money laundering or there's no money laundering going on. And these regulations like anti money laundering are really commonplace in the finance world pretty much every Bank brokerage investment firm name the type of financial institution. They probably have to abide by these. So it's it really. It's not a surprise that this is happening. It's definitely gonna knock by nance's reputation a little bit among. I think the people that we sorta hang out with who were like crypto maximalists. You know, there are deep in the woods in crypto at this point it because you know, people value not having to submit an ID in for various reasons. I think many of which are illegal, but. You just for privacy? That's gonna the mean, but let's be honest because a lot of people don't wanna pay taxes, but so it's interesting to see. I mean it it's no surprise to me but of a sad day among some. But like we were kind of talked to talk in in the chatter earlier to me too. It kind of seems like this is everything against, you know, it's a double edged sword relates this is everything that Curto cryptos kind of against in in essentially, you know. But I think the big topic on a hand is, you know, when is this gonna take that next step the, you know, the institution money in a flow. And I think this is part of, you know, maybe that process where we can get to that next big step with with us, the CFO of Binat was quoted. You know, obviously he's gotta be one, the really pimp pump this up in pimp it out. And he said, the ultimate goal of our partnership with Jay. Jay now asus to create an environment. It. It. Bruins Bill save, which you know, I, I would definitely agree with that because this what this does this chain houses does is it's got these algorithms and pattern recognition, and it'll trigger alerts real time alerts, you know who triggers it to, I'm uncertain, but it alerts someone so that if there is anything leagues rowing on, you know money, laundry laundering because that's really, you know, when you talk to people that aren't in crypto when they hear of crypto bitcoin. That's the first thing that they think of is illegal acts and you know, drug money and stuff like that. So this maybe maybe Suzanne a little bit. I don't know, but to me, yeah, it's needed, I think, but maybe seems like it is everything that crypto doesn't stand for. Would you would you kind of agree with that killer? This is, yeah, I I agree. It's definitely sort of against the those in the spirit of crypto independence. But like you said, it's this weird dynamic between legitimacy and. Widespread exposure and autonomy, and I, I'm not sure you can really have a lot of legitimacy among governments among, you know, various financial institutions in regulations and also have complete autonomy. That's not the you can't because if you're anonymous and people don't know who you are, the governments can be worried that you're taking tax money from them. That's the bottom line and every government because that's how they found themselves as tax money. They're going to be concerned about that. And so I, I totally agree with that. One of the one of the quotes from the article I was reading about the chain. Alison thing is that kinda cracked me up was this is some binds Representative. I don't think it was easy. Oh, by nance's, chief financial officer ways you I'm probably butchering his name all about that. But the quote is the ultimate goal of our partnership with chain. Alice's is to create an environment and blockchain where everyone feels safe. We believe the fight against money laundering to be collaborative and proactive, which really cracks me up because like. Who logs into an exchange and they're like, whoa, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. No KYC like. What is going on here? How do you? I don't feel safe. It's like it's completely ridiculous, but it's it's completely corporate spin. You know. Like, I don't think a single person has ever felt that their safety was in question because of an exchange wasn't doing KYC, but. It's it's hilarious how it spun, you know, as a good thing, it's like, oh, you're, you're not complicit in money laundering like, well, if I'm not doing it, then I don't care, but. Okay, right. Yeah. And it's almost like it's, you know, they're trying to draw in the new investors in trying to make it seem like it is safer for everybody. You know whether it is or not, I guess we'll we'll see. So why were you mentioned privacy a little bit ago? You know, one of the biggest private privacy coins? Minero they. They had some stuff in in the news was today, I think killer. Yeah, just to. Yeah, there. Are they implementing the the what? The bulletproof bulletproof? Yeah. So bulletproof are a technology. Bulletproof themselves do not increase privacy, but they do make privacy coins more efficient. So one of the big problems with these sorts of coins, a lot of them, and this is all explain a little bit more about this later because some privacy aspects are actually more efficient for Blockchain's, but one of the big problems that coins like Manera that use ring, signatures ring c. t. or ring confidential transactions is that they get very bloated very quickly because its population Lee heavy to process these transactions wa. While maintaining the privacy of addresses of amounts of transactions. It's a very tough thing to do so bulletproof increase the efficiency of that process by. I think they're talking around eighty percent. Versing -nificant. That's a lot more efficient. And it's an exciting thing because I, I'm pretty sure minero is the first billion dollar plus blockchain to implement this. They're actually going to be implementing it tomorrow the eighteenth. So by the time most of you're listening to this, you'll be the it'll be actually happening in real time. So yet, you know, it's a pretty big deal. First billion dollar coin token to implement this. Like you said, it does not contribute to the privacy decreases away to confidence will transactions. So it's going to replace their current zero knowledge rainproof range proofs, which is is pretty big, is a pretty big deal and I are they hard forking tomorrow or is it just that they are. Just implementing the test process. Do you know for sure. I don't think who should. I don't think the hard forecast tomorrow that was somewhere in the article that me. Yeah, I like bird reading something about that. But yes, I, I don't think so. The upgrade will begin on October eighteenth but will happen in two parts on the eighteenth bulletproof will be enabled on minero and by Friday, the tech will be made compulsory. So I guess at eighteenth is tomorrow Thursday, the eighteenth is sort of like a an implemented, but don't mandate it day. And then the next day I, I assume when they go through with the hard for if we're on this pressure, check us in the comments or tell us, but that's what I'm gathering. So it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. I mean, Manera was one of those coins where I continue to be amazed at how undervalued it is, and I'm sure it's ninety nine percent a byproduct of just the market being complete shit. But I mean in your opinion, if this if minero se wasn't the number one privacy coin, which I think everybody listens to us regular knows that we're all pretty bullish on Manera. But if this wasn't the say the number one privacy Cohen would you would near opinion with this propellant to be that sought after privacy coin now because of bulletproof. Yeah. I mean it's tough because I think ninety nine percent of people who are in crypto, you say bulletproof to them and they're like, like, that sounds cool, but I have no idea what song by jordin sparks, right? Yes, only that early Aroo too. Electronic music fans a few years ago bulletproof. But anyway. Yeah, I, I would think so. I mean, I think z. cash has done a good job of marketing, but people who are deep into crypto, realize that the way z. cash was set up means it's slightly less private than minero at this point. I think that's pretty safe to say. I think z. caches association with companies in large-scale organizations is in and of itself. A privacy threat minero is very much underground coin. You know, the developers are synonymous. They don't release their names for the most part until it's very much under the radar which is exactly what you want after if you're looking for privacy only because you don't want anybody that any entity can go after to shut it down. And I mean, I think it's, I think it's probably already in my mind. It's number one market cap wise. I think it's near the top as well. If not the highest market cap coin with privacy is the main feature. But I think this will further solidify and if it goes, well, you're gonna see other privacy coins, adopt this technology in, you know, kudos to the minero team for having the balls in the smarts to implement this and get it out into the wild and can. And kind of see how performs. That's pretty great. Pretty bullish on minero have been for awhile. Stuff like this just continues to make me bullish on it. So. Let's move on and talk. Talk about the zero x pump pumping. What twelve percent before the corn based listing actually came out await real quick. One more thing about beliefs. I wanted to mention another aspect of it that's really flying under the radar is it contains a small kind of behind the scenes software tweak which is intended to dissuade a six from mining minero. So the minero community has had sort of this many war with a six going on a six being the type of chips that are specifically meant to mind bitcoin or some other function, and they're far more efficient at doing so because that's their sole function, right? So they've been engineered from the ground up to mind, big one. And so a six. What they've led to in bitcoin is a lot of minor centralization which increases the danger of the blockchain being subjected to a fifty one percent attack. So minero wanting to be centralized. Really, really hard to shutdown is aiming to stop this, and this is going to be a back and forth battle because the makers are going to see this fix. They're gonna read it in the code and they're gonna find something that probably works around it where they're still work. And this will be a game of tennis kind of back and forth or a game with pong. If you prefer between the chip makers and the privacy coin developers, and it's going to be a battle, it's gonna sort of be like the the performance enhancing drug situation that sports where it's between the scientists in the doctors who are working with the athletes and the guys who are doing the testing. And I think it's very much going to resemble that where I believe the devs will be usually a step ahead just because they're gonna have a first mover advantage where they know what they're working on for their chain. But the chip makers don't until after surreal, and they have a bit of head start to then work on something further than that that can respond to whatever the Jimmy do. And you look at like drugs in. In sports. I mean, usually the people who are cheating, how slight leg up because the people who are testing don't know what specifically, what tests for until somebody pops for it or they catch wind of it. And so I think it's going to be very similar here, but that's an important development. I mean, if you look at bit main point and how much they dominate that space, it's concerning because decentralisation is at the heart of everything they do here are everything that cripple stands for. So it's I, it's interesting how it plays out, but I think decline developers are going to have a leg up. Totally, I think so too. Nice reference there with the cheaters in in professional sports. Yeah. Okay. So those that don't know or maybe you're not active on crypto? Twitter, zero x, which is zero. X symbol got listed on coin base. Was this week or last week? I can't anyways. It all blends together. So. So really the first year, see twenty token that's on the Therion blockchain that got listed on coin base before got listed there. There's obviously rumors coin based put it out there that they were one that could or could not get listed so many pump with that. But the thing that's really sketchy. So to say, I guess you could say is that it was up twelve percent roughly before any news broke out that it was going to be listed. You know. And it's just kinda kinda strange to me because coin base, you know, when they listed bitcoin cash was the big thing about the insider trading or whatnot. And then they come out in our listing zero lacks in pretty much, essentially appears to be the the exact same thing. So pretty shady. I, I don't know. I guess you know, it almost makes me want to go out and buy bat basis, basic action token because it's one of them a lot of attention. But yeah, whatever it is. It's so yeah, they've, I I, there's, there's some speculation that it was sort of like an insider leak and people are buying it. But I think like perhaps a more likely explanation that I was reading about who's just that there are lots in software programs that basically constantly check the coin base API to see when they actually enable trading of a new coin before they actually announce it because they're making the change of hind the scenes in their software before they're announced the publicly, of course, because they wanted to be fully operational by the time people all God's. I gotta buy that. And I, I think the theory was that one of these bots which I believe is called lightning signal, which you can locate on Twitter is a free bought where it kind of scrolls through different exchanges API's to identify new listings before they're announced the theory. Is that not even a theory. I think this lightning signal bought put out a signal four minutes before going based announced it officially and the price went up like twenty percent in those four minutes between when the put the signal out in coin base actually announced zero x listening. And so if you were buying pre listing at all, if you bought at the bought signal versus the coin based signal, you made probably twice as much profit up eighteen percent vs up thirty six percent. And so it's it's pretty significant. And I think I think actually had a in the article. They had a quote by crypto hustle. Who shout out was on the show a little little bit ago. I think a few months ago saying that these are something that he uses in, they're just kind of one part of a strategy. But the thing is like I'm thinking back to the episode. We have with Ari like probably eight or nine ten months ago with Ari Paula where he was saying at that point, like pretty much everybody he knew was using Botts in crypto. And so this stuff has been going on for some time and probably on a level that a lot of people don't even really realize this happening. And this is just another example of something that's playing the markets better than any human can because you're not going to be pouring over coin bases, API in their code base and looking for a change that indicates zero s was added. You know these, I mean, if you have all the time in the world in your hands, maybe, but these are things that do that for you. So it's it's very interesting to see how these affect markets. You know, honestly, even if you have the time, why the hell would you wanna do that. I mean, I get you make some more money, but to me, that's just total nerd status. I guess if if you want to. It actually be dealing with like massive capital to make it worth it. Yeah, yeah. So I don't know what. What do you think the next one coin base is going to list. I guess. I don't know. It's like, 'cause people were saying zero x forever. And I was kinda like of the mindset like, yeah, I'll believe it when I see it and it turned out to be absolutely true. Next, I think stellar is pretty high up on the list which is completely mind boggling to me being in the space for a few years. 'cause like seller was coined that I remember trading on Polonius in thinking like, oh, this is complete. Dog shit is just like a, it's like a a little brother of extra Arpey or ripple because those two tended to move together stellar in ripple Ripplewood palm data than stellar pump, like two weeks later in clockwork. And so it it really trips me out there like people are convinced that coin base is gonna list them, but it makes sense now because sellers doing some good things in terms of payments and transactions speeds. They've partnered with IBM to do some stuff if I am not mistaken, but how much has changed just in the few years we've been involved like you go from something seemingly a total shit going to being probably the next coin base add. Right? I don't know. What do you think about that? I don't know. I I've personally think that it's going to be bad. Some people in the chat are saying ADA z. than the typical extra p. XL him destroyed, said shadow destroyed. So I, you know, I don't know. I think to me, I just don't want going based to get to the point where they're listing so many coins. I don't know. It's just kinda nice having the exclusively of what they have there, I guess. And also, you know, I still think with zero x that when the new people new investors come in, they're going to say, okay, this coin is ninety cents. So I'm gonna just by, you know, a bunch of that calling. Thanks Lux's gonna be listed. Next. Oh, baby a mind that, but probably won't get ongoing base, but you never know. Yeah. You made a great point though about like with every new listing, the newest things become less significant. Like I mean, like light coin or a theory, I'm getting out to coin base meant lame more for those prices than zero x getting out of the coin based just because there are more options. So the money is naturally going to be spread out among more options than so people are going to go to coin based on, they're gonna go, oh, it's not just bitcoin or theory on, because I mean, think about back in the day when it was just bitcoin theorem a new person with download coin base and they'd be like, okay, this is the app to buy crypto or bitcoin. And they were seem bitcoin at six hundred, and they would see theory at three dollars. And almost everybody goes, oh, well, why not buy the cheaper version at three dollars. And as there are more and more cheaper and cheaper versions quote, unquote to like the noobs mine than less money is going to flow into each one of those because it's more spread out. I mean, I don't wanna say it's going to be like point basis by Nance. All of a sudden where you have literally three hundred options. You can invest in. But it's gonna get more and more like that. And yeah, it ranges saying it's the nature of the market, though. It's true. You know, it's just kind of like regulation where it's necessary evil for these markets to grow in size. And I guess promote a holder. You know, our standpoint where we are invested, we kinda just wanna hope that enough new capital comes in to make up for that increase in channels. They can put their money into. Right, Jonathan, and the chat made a good point that said when ET see theorem classic got added, it didn't change price at all true kind of signs of the market. I think though, you know if that gets added in the last bull run, I think it, you know, it goes crazy. So I agree. I'm moving on something that you know kind of caught my eye was this. The hearing that when the Peter van Balkan Berg of the head of research coin center doctor nor yell, Rubini, who is a professor at den while you certain school business testified before the Senate banking committee? I dunno killer. Did you watch any of that? I, it was kinda periodically Washington while I was at work and I think you know, I, I wanna give shout out to Peter because I think he kept his cool pretty. He was really good at what he does, and he kept his cool a lot of times when Norio or whatever his name is was saying some stuff I, I was getting pretty heated. I'm somos disguise such a douche which you know. You could argue, you know, someone can argue to, he's not, but I think I kind of think he is. He's he's been Cohen after people on Twitter. In his life mission now to to kinda kill crypto currency. And here's one tweet. He said that that really, you know, piss me off, I guess as I, this is a quote, as I poke fun of these crypto crazies in lunatics they all came out of their shit coined filled cesspool 's in hurled, nasty insults against me. Twenty four, seven. So I block them all in ninety. Nine percent of them are angry. White males who are total who are totals life losers proves my point on crypto as right, wing notary. I guess that's that's still more were white male nutters or something. I guess. I mean, you know, if if I say that my ass gets band, let's just. Be honest. If you say less band. Yeah, I just think. I just think he, I mean, I'm not trying to steal any credit nation from the sky because he seems to be a pretty well respected. You know, whatever he is in his file the I think he teaches econ, but. You know, piss off, man, you don't. So let me first of all, say that Noel Rubini is a beautiful name. It is. It really is. It flows off the tongue. It's amazing. I believe he's Turkish or his family is from Turkey. I could be wrong on that could be sort of Iran. Could be right. Anyway. So Rubini is a guy who's been in sort of the limelight in traditional finance for quite some time because he successfully or pretty successfully called the two thousand eight crash in the stock market. So that's how he really got famous and what tends to happen in traditional markets is if you make one really good bearish call and you end up being right, you are allowed to go on TV as much as you want, say as much bullshit as you want for at least the following ten years. That's how it works, which is completely ridiculous. Is these people often make these predictions for years of the time before they end up being right, and then they run with the instance where they happen to be right, you know, and so it, it sort of thing where a broken clock is right twice a day, and so Rabin is, you know, I it's sort of like a Peter Schiff type if anybody's familiar with him where they both called the two thousand eight crash really well, and they've been shouting into the wind. For the following ten years and been wrong about pretty much everything they've substance them. And what happens is, you know you make a good prediction and it goes to your head, you think, oh, I know better than anybody, you know, I, because that's kind of a natural human thing is the overconfidence in thinking you're smarter than everybody, and they get this idea in their head that there's some kind of oracle and these guys just on and on and on make predictions that end up being wrong at that point because they've, oh, they're overconfident, they're not thinking logically. They're just kind of going with their gut because they think they're got is spot on at that point. So Rabin is a little bit detached on on this crypto shit. I mean, if you look at his tweets, you can tell he doesn't really know what he's talking about. I did not watch the hearing actually, so I can't really comment on that, but I saw some snippets of it and it just it's just the thing though is like I said, if you look at some of the sweets, he doesn't really know what he's talking about this stuff. So how much weight can I really put into all the other stuff he says about crypto. Because he's established that he's just kind of winging it and he's probably read some headlines or some surface level articles, and I think we can. We can all sort of relate to that a little bit. Yeah. Vinnie lingam is another example nomad, but I think we can all relate to that too degree because I mean, when I first got involved in crypto, there are things I thought for sure. After like the first few months that I look back now and I'm like, oh, I was an idiot because I thought this there was that little thing that I didn't consider which completely disproved my point. And I think that's where Rabin is out right now. And I think that's where a lot of traditional finance people like Jamie diamond perhaps are at right now where they have enough knowledge to be dangerous, and they have enough knowledge to be confident that they're not talking about in public and keep buying. These are very successful people to. I mean, Jamie diamond is the fucking CEO of j. p. Morgan. So he's had an entire life of success and kicking ass. And that doesn't go away easy. You know, you don't go from that to some humble guy who's like, I know nothing. No, I bought to you who know more it just it takes a while for that to happen. And so these guys get a little bit of knowledge and they get very cocky and they go to the press and they start spouting off on stuff like this. So. I think ruby any sort of in the point right now where he doesn't realize how much he's damaging his reputation because he doesn't know what he doesn't know, and these guys have the platform to or they could spew whatever the hell they want, and people are gonna listen to them and go with it. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. So I, I do agree with you. I think he's a little off far fetched. You know the last time he called. And don't quote me on this. I'm not saying the word for word, but the last time he called something with bitcoin pop in was when it was like fifth sub, fifty dollars maybe and you know, look at even now we're, we're down what we are. He would still be up massively if he would have thrown something into, you know, it goes to show to the difference between them. Unlike him in a Howard Lind's own who you know, doesn't really know much about crypto, but realizes that it's a movement realizes that there's money to be made. And he has some friends that he trusts and you know, they're investing in crypto. So he thought, you know why not take a stab at it, what what's worse that could have him size, lose all your money going to zero. But you know it just shows two different types of people, maybe. No, totally. Yeah. This Norio Rabin is a little more old school than Howard would be. So it's. It's funny to read his tweets in what's funny about krypton Twitter's, you know, we might be bashing each other all day long. And then as soon as someone attacks us as a whole, everyone just gangs up and I've seen people are you know, screen shotting that he's blocked them in there saying, add another trophy to the trophy case. So it's just kind of funny in how he said that the ninety ninety nine percent of crypto Twitter's is attacking him twenty four, seven. Well, that's probably pretty accurate. So just kinda funny how we can be down each other's throats and then. Join forces to wipe someone's ask. So your point comparing him to lindzen was like completely spot on because you're starting to see this traditional finances full of charlatans. Basically they make one good call to get notoriety for it, and they ride that call off into the sunset with media appearances with newsletters where they claim to predict the future. It's all bullshit. The guy you really wanna trust is somebody like Howard where he's more than willing to say, look, I don't know what's going to happen. You know, I, I know some smart people who know more about the stuff than I do and they say, this is going to happen. So I trust that, but I don't really know. And Rabin is on the other side where he gets a little bit information. He thinks he's an expert and and that's when you know a guy is, you know, probably hasn't agenda or is just kind of making calls to make calls and you're starting to see that in crypto two, it's been very, this is something I almost tweeted the other day, but I thought it would be like, I, I don't know. I, I thought it would be too obvious who I was talking about based on the initial. Tweet, I was home. Criminal like is really starting to get charlatans in what I mean by that is like salesman where it's just always Uber bullish or Uber bearish or something, and it's for clicks. It's for ratings, but they're feeding you largely bullshit. And I think you gotta start to be aware of that because cripple getting big enough where there are some big people who you think you can trust, but it's completely agenda-driven and I'm not gonna even Amos. I mean, we can probably talk about this after the episode, but it I'm really starting to see this merge where it's just like prepackaged bullshit. That's either completely bullish or completely bearish, and it's it's just for the point of clicks, because if you're neutral, nobody gives a fuck, but most of the time neutrality is fairly close to buy neutrality. I mean, like sort of inbetween between the furthest sides of each of each issue, the opinions. I think that middle ground is sort of usually the most accurate. If you're too far on one side or another, you're probably selling something promoting something. But you're not giving people the absolute best information. And that's one thing I think we've always kind of tried to do is like not before a shit, like there's plenty. We don't know what we're talking about, but I think I hope at least that we're willing to admit that in like people can kinda tell that, you know if we do feel confident in something, then we talk about it. But it's interesting to see Kroto develop these salesmen are listen types. Yeah. And like nomad on, I am no met on. Twitter always says, is going back to us is that we're always, we're one of the best key would what is he out? I guess I'm drawing a blank like he always says he countered to every go. He countered trades everything that we say. So just kind of funny, I guess. So with without. There's like there's very little evidence behind that though. I mean, I love no mad, but like it's it's kind of turned into a joke. But like I mean, there have been episodes where we've been Super Bowl ish and their turns out to be Barish and vice versa. But that goes to show. I mean, nobody's ever like right most of the time. I mean in traditional finance, you're right fifty. Five percent of the time you're doing pretty well, and it's this yet nomad shoutouts you. But also I think I largely disappeared without it's, it's funny that you run with it, but it's it's sort of just how equities and asset pricing works. And I'm sure you know that almost mad with your background, but whether you type too. I think the bus star balls, no matter what we do minez probably why. Realistically, he doesn't wanna come on. Ooh, that's a good theory. I liked that no mad perhaps confident in tweeting, but not speaking plot. Thickens. The mouth is maybe maybe not though maybe just keep up. All right. Let's talk about that tether crash, the. Premium biff an everything like that. So US DT hit the new low of ninety. Two cents the lowest. It's been since money like two hours. April two thousand seventeen, which you know everything I've found read. No one really knows why killer tracked me if I'm wrong. Well, it's, I mean, tether and bit. Phoenix have been issues on and off for the past, like literally four years probably at least. So it's it's always a new issue. I I've kind of it's it's one of those topics where I started just kind of filtering it out like I see it and I'm like, oh, biff. X.'s. Insolvent, hilarious. Not really. But it's, I think it's one of those. I mean. I just think if there's this much smoke, there should be fire if something is actually really wrong with biff and extra tether. And we've said this on previous episodes. But I mean there's enough of microscope on these people were unless they're just doing a phenomenal job of evading authorities. Then there's probably nothing really horrendous there. I mean, maybe there up to some questionable accounting and shadiness. But if it's like some giant conspiracy like bit phonetic says bit financed, I should say, says on Twitter, I just gotta think it would be exposed by now and for people were following biff next on Twitter to keep in mind this fucking guy, constantly tweets, and then deletes and he'll say something that's stupid. And when he finds out it's stupid, he deletes or he misrepresents facts to suit his point. I, we've been on Twitter long enough. We've seen this guy do this a thousand times. You have to take everything. He says with a gigantic grain of salt. I mean, like a boulder of salt. Like if you put any way at all, because he clearly is agenda driven. I that kind of interests me more than like that connects and tether is bit for next and who's behind him who's running out account. I don't think it's one guy. I think it's multiple people. There's been a conspiracy floated that bit. Phonetics is an operative of a rival exchange who is aiming to take down. Six. That's interesting various in foil hat, but I could see it. Totally, and you wanna know who retweets the shit out of it for next any guesses Killick. Any router. Rabeni really? Yeah. I don't know why severe? Yep. Go go look at his. If you're not locked from being go just scroll down his tweets about maybe like two days worth and I bet you damn near. Every other tweet that's on there is him re tweeting. But Phoenix. That's interesting. I mean, I it's kind of goes to show you that people they make up their mind, and then they look for evidence that confirms the idea they've already formed. I mean, very few people are this neutral monk who sit there, welcoming opinions from either side and correctly weighing either of them. You know, it's very few people have the emotional constitution to do that. When in reality, that's probably where you get closest to the truth is trying to remain neutral possible in at least listening to other ideas. And I mean, biff next is not that Rabin is clearly not that at this point Rabin has taken a stance and now he's going to do everything. He can approve that stance. No matter how much evidence to the contrary emerges. Yeah, even if someone proves him wrong or you know, big bitcoin goes up in stays in in a higher range in minot has another bowling. I, I still think that he's gonna disown it. So they were on crippled for one to shout out on the chat. He just goes, Rubini pays for Tinder. I think that's. The guy that hung with us set in Philly is yeah. Was trying to figure out a way not to. But crypto four, one, two or bits. Berg, check him out on Twitter, good dude funded. We had a really good time hanging out with him at the last conference it went to. So. A couple more shutouts. Bell and body are in the house. So thanks for you guys. Listen. So back to this whole tether, finish thing, one thing, one quote that you know the the big skeptic on it is, is there actually a dollar back for every you know, one as DT. Tethers chief compliance officer, Leonardo riyal or whatever said that, you know, they do have every tether is backed by USD in that their assets exceed their liabilities in always have in. It's never been a question. So you know, we've we've talked about this before on here killer and I think you you've been a big proponent of this. Is that that you know they've undergone audits so they've passed those. You know, I, I don't really know what to to believe here, what to really feel. So a month just kinda stay neutral. I don't think you know, I saw so curious tweeted that if you weren't buying tether at ninety two cents, you know, what are you doing? Because obviously he feels pretty comfortable that it's going to hover on that dollar mountain. You know, made pretty easy money, so I don't know all eighty cents or whatever. Drop through shit. Yeah. So that's that's kind of odd. Do you have anything else ad for that. For tether. I just, I think what it boils down to is this. I'm not conducting the audience. The audits I don't have insight into specifically what's going on there who's conducting them how they're being conducted. So I don't know if I can comment on that. The only thing I know for sure is that if there is this much negativity around it. For this long. I highly doubt that they are really up to some serious shady business. I mean, the US has kind of piqued their interest and said, hey, what's going on here? Tons of other governments have done that other exchanges of them that there have been so many people trying to take this entity down. If an ex and tether, I just, I gotta think that if it was really some shady business that would have gone by now. And that's the thing I keep coming back to a shout out. The rains killers the only person on ESPN who consistently pronounces things correctly. Anyway. Sorry, off topic. Suck it. So. All right. So I I have found, you know, just kind of reading the stuff that we were today getting ready for tonight. I kind of found some. You know, things that I found very interesting that maybe are overlooked by McComb random tidbits, but the average daily volume for for bitcoin futures grew forty one percent from in quarter three from quarter to and it's actually up one hundred seventy percent from quarter one, which Tomase pretty bullish. There are three pro crypto bills being introduced to congress by congress right now are man Representative. Tom Emmer is kinda leading the charge on two of those. Basically, you know, they were kinda over my head but go coin centers. Got a good article on them. So go on over there. Don't donate any money though, because as make neurologic talk to you of the police bother him, the is one of the funniest guys on Twitter but gives a little bit funny, some odd number, by the way shout out to the pod formed a year ago today, the telegram chock group. It's it's a fucking chat group. Let's. It's not. I'm not gonna change in the world, but it has made a big difference in my life and hope the lives of a few others. We've got a lot a lot of representation of the pot in the chat tonight. So that just kind of goes to show, you know, this goes back to one of my biggest things. My advice to new people is network, get out in get, you know, not necessarily people with similar traits dot trading stylists, you because it's always good to hear. Hear other people's trading style, you know, you can adapt and mold your trading style to be obviously as for you. But hearing other sides of the aisle is is really crucial. I think killer and I can say that prince's he's not here, but his trading style is unlike any that I've seen. I'm not gonna get into details of it because I don't think he'd want me to, but it's just funny to see his trading. Who would you not agree is like a Princess, the youngest among the three of us, and it's very funny because Dale and I are. The ones who are like opening like twenty five times fifty times leverage straight max. Here we go. Boys going to the moon and Princess like pro cars. I only do five times leverage max. That's as far as all goal. Usually it's two to three times that was a horrible daughter. Turn the leverage down. He's totally right. I mean, we're just like your like. Yeah. So he I, the funniest prince trade story is I I message, I think it was in our Chad. I message said Yoda strat, it's, you know, I think it's about ready pop. He remind trees. And then later that night, I said, hey, my entries hit finally in prince's, like Olea of been in and out of it five times already. Brew. How about like the prince's are co host? How many times does he counter trate at us? Like he tells us Chad. He's like, oh, I'm love him. Send right ear. And like we look at the orderbook and it's just massive cell walls, and then we go Princess you and he's like, oh, yeah. Sorry, guys. Maybe. Yes, exactly. Emoji to us like a is like, bro. Like where you're komo's you're dumping on us your frigging dumping on us, but no shoutout hand. So this is what we just mentioned said, I just I wanna talk about Santa little bit because I have a a little funny funny story about send. So we got into San, unfortunately, I got my father into send as well. This was when I thought like I was sold on San by some friends and. Our theory was basically that like a lot of big dogs are buying it. So it's going to do all right, you know, because people will want it to succeed. And so I, I went to my dad and I'm like, dad, you should put some money in this like, well, I don't think I went to him. I think he came to me and I thought of Sen. and a better money into it. And then just re this is probably six or eight months ago and so send was much higher than it is now. Probably not that Fargo, but it was long ago. And so like the last couple days my dad comes to me and he's like, hey, that thing we that crypto thing, we put money into canoe, semi, like an analysis of like what that is, like, why you did it? And I was like. Like. Look back in like I didn't really have a good reason. I just thought it was going to pump like it. So I'm like, I'm like scrambling for information to find. So I can like tell it to him and like like, give them a strong case, you know, just ended up like Sunday him the website link thinking to my head, like, say, started to basically it's gonna pump too many people are in on it written ought to and it's down, like seventy percent from what he got it. He should have sent him. The Lincoln said d. Wayel our new. Bro? Well, the thing is San was like a third of the ICO price when I bought it for him. So I'm like, how much lower can it go literally down like seventy five percent from then. Anyway, restaurants, let's wrap up with bold prediction through your end. What do you got. Bold prediction. I think this may be bold right now. I think biff and will be operating largely businesses usual by the end of two thousand nineteen. Bold. Cat. I don't know what mine would be. You know what is going to be. I'm going to get my original crypto Dale account back by the end of the year. I hope so that is built after feels, but I should on number sixteen. So what do you do. You're fighting living ridiculous. Yeah, I shouldn't have abandoned the first place, obviously. I know. Oh, well, it happens. I've learned my lesson Dinnie. Twitter folks are listening. So sit pretty well the worst song. Got anything wrap up with killer. One final thing I wanted to talk about this is just something I kind of thinking about lately is looking back at crypto bull markets and stock market bull markets. Crypto has never been in an environment where the stock market was doing poorly. So the last major stock market crash was two thousand eight kind of started in two thousand seven. Let's say crypto became like a mainstream thing, or even semi mainstream. Let's say like early two thousand ten, two thousand eleven ish. So cryptanalysts largely had this tailwind. Of equity markets doing well. So people making more money there, which they then flip into riskier assets because they're very comfortable with stocks which are just grinding higher for like the past ten years. And I'm I'm a little bit concerned about what happens if crypto recovers in the next few months and the stock market just completely takes a shit. And I think that's fairly likely. I think the stock market is like the reaching the top. I think it may have a couple more years in it, which would be enough for another crypto run. And that's like ideal. We should all like go outside and dance in the rain event. But I'm wondering what happens because I mean, some people have this idea and I tweeted about this where, oh, the stock market goes to shit. You're really gonna see crypto showing and people are going to pile money into it. You guys have never been involved in markets in your lives. Anybody saying that completely clueless because when the traditional markets are crashing, people are not looking to put their money in shit going bitcoin. It's completely ridiculous. Like these act opposite will happen. They will sell off their bitcoin first before the stock market really takes ship when. So if you're hoping like for a market downturn because they go crypto goal of five million percent, no chance, like I say, many things without much certainty because I realized I can be an idiot, but I'm pretty fucking sure about this. And I think you gotta get this notion out of your head that if the equity markets crash, you're going to be swimming in gold, like fucking Scrooge mcduck. So I think I wanted to talk about that because I think that's a very real possibility is crypto starts to recover. An equity is just completely bite the bullet and. I think people are underrating that possibility. You know, I kind of agree with what you're saying killer because you know, just look at will bitcoin did the other day, you know how two thousand dollar plus wick. So I just think with that volatility that if if the stock market which you know is the bee's knees, if that starts taking a dump thin, you're going to see people rushing out a bitcoin by buying gold or whatever the case may be. They do, but I. I think you wanna see the stock market doing well, and then people are more likely to take a risk on something like like bitcoin in Chicago in. So I, I agree completely with. All right. Well, thanks for listening love to hear some feedback on some stuff. You know, we're always trying to improve this, the podcasts hundred. This is one hundred and third episode, so not planning on Hilton this anytime soon. So we appreciate everyone listening to that waitress. They're working hard even though we're broke his shit too. So just getting, I always get people always give weird. When you say your broker, you're swimming in money. So we're flat catch-up suck. We just getting no come after us. Yeah, we'll shit so peace out. Everybody. Take care tip. Your waitress be safe. See guys. Thanks for this.

Two Broads Talking Politics

0157: Surviving Thanksgiving with Trump Supporters (11/19/2018)

"Are you? Hey, everyone. This is Kelly with two broads talking politics. I am on in this episode with Brian hearts burger, who's a psychologist. Hi, brian. All right. How're you doing today? Great. So some of you may have caught a video episode that Brandon I did about self care. But now since we're here during thanksgiving week, we're gonna talk some about a talking other people and people you might not agree with Brian May be for people who did not catch the video episode, which they should go back, and do can you talk a little bit about your background. So I'm a clinical psychologist, I'm west and Massachusetts, I have a doctorate in clinical psychology. And I am currently in private practice. We did something like this last year before thanksgiving. But I thought it would be good to do again as the holidays are coming up because a lot of people may be having dinner. With family both thanksgiving. And and in the December holidays with people who they maybe don't see all the time people who may have different opinions than they do. Luckily for me, this is not a problem. My family. At least the very close family that I will be with things giving is all politically lake me. But I know that case for everybody. I actually have to go across political boundaries myself. This this thanksgiving, I have a lot of distant relatives coming off. And they're in terra. Sarah, and Pennsylvania. So we're going to be having to learn how to kind of settle our differences that cable, and she if maybe we can table, politics or not. Well, no. But it's my for a into having to negotiate with topics outside of my comfort zone. I guess being in a place outside of my bubble. Yes. So I guess that's the thing that people sort of have to tackle. I is. You know, do you assuming you're close enough to people that you still want to see them, maybe hold political beliefs that are different than yours or other kind of beliefs that are different than yours is, you know, do you sort of address things head on and talk about optics that are difficult or do you try to, you know, avoid those topics altogether. Do you think there is one way or another? That's better is this something people should just feel out for themselves. I think it's all so this is the typical therapist and just punting and saying it's all case. But for the most part, I think that that you really have to do is. Kind of huddled around the land people, and and kind of have one being grief at the end asking me how win how things will how issues were settled how they weren't settled. But initially trying to find your own tried if you will and just kind of prepping them that they're gonna be experiencing or can experience some comfortable discourse point of us that may not be to them and actually be offense. But just trying to figure out outs, you reason with sometimes unreasonable people, you know, that's always the challenge. So I mean, I I wouldn't take feel it out to be to insure question. But it you can't own stations a hundred or and blind all the time. Because one of the worst thing that you can really do is be offered and kind of experience upper -tunities where your emotions getting into the conversation, you you don't wanna be that person thanksgiving that cr-. Creates a. I I would say no matter what you do. Don't Josh and return anger with anger. So trying your best to everyone to keep our oceans in check with probably the best thing to do front. Are there times that you would recommend that someone walk away either from a conversation or even from a, you know, the place where they are if they need to think an escape plan should always happen social anxiety. So one of the happens to me when I walk into a room is I gotta figure out any plan, you know, whether that the old French exit or there's something else. So I think really important thing to do in these kind of situations as weren't how to set limits. You know, just be like, well, if if there's this battery that they're gonna cross whether it be to a few or or something about pro choice, you know, I would just like, you know, this isn't even a conversation worth having right now because it's just all going to. Be. It's just gonna has a potential s quick. So if there are any news for you. You know, be aware of it be like, this isn't even worth it. I might need to go and get second or find a dog to pet. But yeah, I I think that you know, you're gonna have to figure out when you're in that room. Okay. Tolerate what can't tolerate where can you be? It becomes intolerable. I recommend having a baby that needs to be breastfed 'cause that's an easy escape. That that would be great, you know, like kinda distractions good or try prep years off and changing topics. Maybe introducing new conversation altogether. That would be a good strategy for sure. I mean, really babies are great, you know, whether or not your breast feeding babies are just terrific for like breaking up go up. They gotta be changed. They gotta be fed. They gotta be. They're great. You know, that's kind of like a common ground, and those are some of the things that you really need to look for it ever. There's baby in need. Everyone can kind of gravitate and hover around that and recognize that so sometimes traditions that people haven't thanksgiving, you know, there is that sense of common ground, so maybe focusing on that as well. Agreed. You of this of thanksgiving and trying to deal with people with different ideas. Hasim bilteral at the C. There's this amazing talk that I had a chance to be a part of about a month ago by the psychologist whose name is Charlie cancer. And he started talking about all ways to disarm conversation discussions that seemed to be very sick. And of course, the thing that really points to is at the there's organizations like angels where they try to create reasonable discourse between hard right into. Visuals. So I think look up at our angels dot org as a reference or resource for you, maybe to learn how to bring up certain talking points that might be able to help people find common ground. So you think it's worth it for people to try to change people's minds. You know, is this an opportunity thrown that many times in our society right now when people in the far, right and the far left are in the same room together. Should we take those moments to to try to change people's minds, or is it better to sort of? You know, find things that we all are ready agree on. Yeah. You're not gonna get any. So just focus on the pie is what you're saying. Actually, I mean, let's be whenever there's an opportunity where people have or people get to be family members. It's going to be tense. So I mean it plays. They're going to introduce alcohol into play. So some people might feel over loose to talk about some controversial issues within the family. I don't think you wanna add fuel to your fire and start bringing up. Why conservatives view things you can you can extrapol- what I mean from that. But I think it's just best for people to really kind of limit. How much drinking that they're doing to be aware of it? It'd be ten all ready. I know that you can't discuss individual patients. But do you find that the holidays are a cause of stress in general for people? Yeah. I mean, absolutely. The thing about the holidays is it does have this great ability to bring families together certain families are dysfunctional and. I'm to have certain holiday traditions, and it usually goes awry, so a lot of patients that I have to kind of mentally and psychologically prepare themselves to experience this kind of force chaos during these times and oftentimes holidays specifically thanksgiving and Christmas and general are popular times to mourn to grieve sometimes lost loved ones or even pets that have been around in the family may not be there. So oftentimes, there can be people that all notice a missing person at the table and people are usually in different stages of their own grieving so just because in that, especially if you notice that politics is being brought to the table. Maybe a person is experiencing a great deal of depression or anger, just back that there's not a person that they were at the. Additive? And the last thing that they need is controversial topic brought up if experiencing these things during the holidays starts to help people realize that in fact, they need to get help with their own mental health is there a website or a guide or something that would point people through the steps of of seeking help. So I think one of the best places to start looking for for providers would just be doing a quick Google search if there's anything for support for the holidays, I don't know anything off the top of my head. But if they do recognize that it's it's a big problem. And they anticipate that it's going to be something that's going to get in the way of the things that they ought to do over the holidays. Hop on psychology today. They have an excellent referral west of individuals. Unfortunately, psychotherapy is more or less a privilege right now, you have clinicians that have extremely long weightless. They only accept. Certain insurances, and it can be a challenge. So you really have to be invested in the process of finding therapists. That's good for you. And that also might be just finding someone that really understands what it's like there is a lot of hard work and a lot of that work goes on in between sessions. So I I hope that in a person's had they can go through an inventory of how much time how much money and how much energy they're really looking forward to to investing and trying to create positive behavior change. It's it's a really really grueling process. And it it might not be pleasant especially with the first few sessions, but hopefully, maybe experiencing all sectors disorder, or that can be experiencing complicated grief. Do the promoters such as holiday as they do seek out some professional help. And if they want to I'm on Twitter at psych hype. And if you really need some assistance trying to end providers just d. Me, and I'll do my best to try to point you in the right direction. Is there anything else that you wanna make sure that we talk about the best thing that we can really do dealing with these really really times both around the holidays with people were not really from there. West is just make sure that you discharge your stress, and you find a way to get rid of it. So kind of taking care of yourself is this is a great opportunity to plug our last conversation that we had with self care, although it's not with Syndey, but it's a need for us of mental health. Check for ourselves. What what kind of areas of need? We're facing right now, how we best those things I wanna make a plug to a for people this isn't directly related to our conversation. But is another thing for people to keep in mind. If they're going to other people's houses for the holidays, if you're not aware of if the other house, if they have guns or how they store their guns. Moms. Action has a great website that can help navigate those issues for you, a be smart for kids dot org. And so that's just a a really important thing to around holidays. When you're in a lot of homes with that, you might not be in that often, and we'll put a link for that on our website as well. This is great. I'm just looking at it right now amongst Mandak and puts it out. And so I always liked to to point to it. Anytime people talk about not knowing how to have conversations with family members or potential play dates or things about whether their guns in the home. Thanks for bringing that up. I can about pictures one thing. But when you have a firearm in the house, that's definitely something to be definitely a causes concerned. Yeah. Well, Bryan, thank you for talking with us about this. I know hope that everybody has wonderful thanksgiving. We haven't scared you away from enjoying your thanksgiving dinner. But I know it it's it's a cause of concern. For people in. So wanna make sure they have some some tools going into? What may be an otherwise uncomfortable dinner? Absolutely. I hope you enjoy some Turkey. I I'm a vegetarian. So I will enjoy tofurkey. Cool along with and wine and sweet potatoes. All because stuff to maybe we should have also done enough Assode on how not to overeat. Yeah. Everyone. Go ahead over eat on thanksgiving. And maybe we'll be back next week on how to start good healthy habits. For treat yourself. Thanks for listening to to broads talking politics. Are theme song is called. Are.

Freshman Year vs Sophomore Year

"Jour- therapy because we have this. So how summer or house about this school the last week of school, technically. Ardsley pretty like whatever relax. I feel like the finals during versa Mestre were way more stressful. Yeah. Because the ladder. No, it was actually less uses cool. But now it was just one final for the last day. Yeah, I find on the last day. Great it. You enjoy the final good final like the final because you got a ninety six. One hundred. Sat there like shaky my head actually shake because I was like, I'm not gonna get this. Like I like the way I and I was I. Do the last day of scores. When I really kinda starts to think that it is the last they find. The actualize day it's about to be summer because last summer feels, so distant I feel like I was a completely different person last summer. So feels really weird having summer now. Because it's, it's like if I fill summer for the first time I was I don't remember why did last summer. I don't think it's anything to remarkable. But hopefully this summer is very fun. I think I had a exciting summer less last. Really? What did you do? I a child to eight states. Oh. What was it flowing? One vegan a car with my family for two weeks straight. I don't know. I don't know how I dealt with. Did you take a lot of pictures? I did. But I didn't pose like any because he all looked terrible 'cause we thought the one with you, and your gene. Jackie. Oh my God. That was a good one. That's like show. And it goes editing. Look terrible than well, like I dunno every day, I just looked terrible because I always had like a restroom, our, of course, where whenever we stopped at a hotel, or whatever you stop hotels or motels both. Yeah. Whatever. Yeah. I just looked terrible every day. Remember what I did for Malacca either really, I got closer with the guy. Oh. I go swimming a lot swimming a ally. Yeah. That was fun. That's what I did. We have a lot we ate a lot. That's when we started cooking food, or you started cooking and the other than that I didn't do anything except volleyball. While was a really huge part of my last summer this summer. However, there's no practice. I'm hoping there is an a hope they give the give word about that. But I gotta wait until two weeks 'cause scrolls practice does not serve until two weeks. Also is is in here, so third weaken row that we can't get everyone here. So he's gone. Hopefully he'll be back next up Assode. But I summer what did I do? I summer. I don't remember. I do not remember what I did last summer, you know how this entire I've told you before. But I had I have this entire. On my notes up. I recorded every day or not everyday. But every memorable day of the year, I just wrote about what happened that day, so I have two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen filled up, so diary, basically. Yeah. But I haven't looked through it because I'm so scared scared. I don't know. I was too scared to through it. So I just I just void looking through for as long as they can. But this summer, what are your plans, some retweeting nineteen or sixteen? Did we already cover this last episode? Like our plan, I didn't hang out with you guys, of course, more volleyball and myself definitely improve on myself. That's a retrial improve on. Intellectually an actual. And physically like this physically. Yeah. Clearly think you'll ever go to the gym. I actually went like today you go. Oh, cash. I wouldn't yet yesterday. And today. You work on. What way? What? Fries. Expecting to say no, no. Maybe the future. I hope. Two. I went today with my sister, I'm only going because she really wants to go, and she doesn't want to go alone. So I guess she's pushing me to go, and I enjoy planet fitness holiday grade. They're the one over there. I went today so you like officially signed up. Whereas like what is it a pass for re? Oh I like we chose. So there's this like summer things seen it. Yeah. It's that for teenagers teenagers. Explain it. So if you're under seventeen or eighteen you get to go for three months, I think, for free. Oh, yeah. That's good. And at the end, there's like this raffles thing when you didn't raffle were the pick out like fifty one kids out of the people that signed up, and I don't really like earn something. You win. That's it kale is getting her pump. Is it true that they like surf pizza? Honestly. I don't know why they do that. Do as I think it's the first day of every month the first Monday, I something, I don't know why they would do that. Like fitness, there's a lot of things fitness rules like. Yeah. I don't know why that workout so weird. It's weird. I've, I've seen stuff about that. What do you think of sophomore year compared to freshman year? I enjoyed it. I loved it, especially when you're I was also interested. And I really only had like this specific group of friends by sophomore year. I really mean so many more friends, I enjoyed get more involved, too. Yeah. That to so many new things happened. I didn't expect to happen. I don't know. I just I really enjoy that is that you like purposely trying to do just kind of have no some things. I did even mean to just happy. For example, league journey clubs. I didn't expect yourself. Yeah, I didn't expect to actually be so involved in it. I just I just went in as a member, but I don't know the president just. Just. I don't know. I really liked. Let's the opposite of me. Oh, why did you like it? No. Not like that. But I feel I was more extroverted in of fashion year L, and then I fall more introverted sophomore year. Oh, yeah. So opposite from you. Why did you matured more or thinking that I matured more I got more comfortable with my with everybody with the atmosphere with the environment. And I got closer with more. I got closer with a smaller group of friends, as opposed to, like, not that close, with, like a larger group of friends. Got me. Yeah. Plus I. Cut people. Talk city. Yeah. So in a way Stafa was more healthier than freshman year. Oh, interesting. But you didn't like him more. I say that too. Yeah. I like freshman more because I was more extroverted. So I guess I'm being like kinda hypocritical. I don't know little. Yes, where you happier freshman year or you have your this year without its oxes. Fused confused since you yourself. Yeah, I don't know. I guess told you me. Me baby sister stalled you, we just like freshman year because jute because that's when I did more things. So I guess that's why personally I did like softball. You're more freshman year. I was a lot more introverted. And because my brothers my older brother's friends were there. It was hard for me to be myself 'cause I was really because I wasn't really comfortable with them. You know, I don't know. It was just weird and a lot of things happen during freshman year, and I was not in a good mental state, but it's all your half of it was still pretty bad. But I did become a little more extroverted. I met a lot of new people got a lot more involved with school. I even ran for president or as be president. So that was pretty cool. But yeah, I think sophomore year like how I'm doing now was a lot more better than how I was doing like a year ago. So you like soft when you're more. Yeah, for sure. I, I like this year. More. Definitely. I, I really enjoy this year. I, I don't know if people complain about it, personally, I think it was just fun and relaxing and not too stressful. There wasn't a lot of word and compared to last year last year felt very. Feels really distant now. I feel like a different person from freshman year freshman year me, I think to me, I see myself as very. Small and young and small fresh out of junior high. But now I feel a little more accustomed to the high school life and stuff. So I, I enjoyed tough when you're more, but I'm excited we're junior you're gonna be saying. I think I'm actually going to enjoy my classes next year, especially because now there's not really a set group of all there is because I felt like this year I was going to my classes and Ardi knew, who was going to be in those classes. But now juniors more freedom to choose your classes. So I get to meet more people. True. Yeah. Being a lot of different classes, I won't have any classes with Marc or Thomas so sad. Are you excited for junior year, though? Yeah, I am because I'm actually going to take the classes. I'm going to be comfortable in. I wanna learn a lot more AP physics. I'm excited AP physics 'cause I really wanna learn more about that kind of field because I'm interested in it. I've always been interested in physics ever since as a child. So yeah, I'm really excited for junior because I don't know. I feel like I'm doing really well right now. And hopefully like you know because every freshman, it's year I started off the year like Silva. It was like I was always sad. It was really hard for you to like, ever have fun. But junior. I, I think I'll have a lot more fun. I don't know about the classes, the classes junior supposed to be super hard coding to everyone. Yeah. 'cause it's like the most important year. I think I don't know. But I think I'll live my classes more this year just because I don't feel like that much pressured. Like, like, I don't know. I was really pressured into taking all honors and honestly, wasn't for me. I feel like I should have chosen like some easier classes, but yeah, so I was planning on taking like all EP classes for junior. It's just weird, but we're here must you. But I'm just choosing classes. I know I can handle and I'm interested in so. Yeah. Are you taking your taking one EP classics, right? Take three three. Yeah. What's the word? Taking a push AP environmental and AP. Our history, be your first few class. Yeah. 'cause I wasn't what to take AP aero. Yeah. You want to get. Yeah. I was planning on, but the counselor said, I didn't have face. Well Ellen about. SA. Cues DBQ's Elway cues. Good luck with that. I'll be very fine on your test AP test. Do you have any advice for freshmen sophomores, anything, you want to tell them that you're not doing or not having someone tell you referring back to at Thomas said, if your freshman going into sophomore year, I would just take the classes that you feel comfortable with and that, you know, you have a higher chance of succeeding in, you don't wanna take classes that you don't actually enjoy? That's what I would say, don't take the classes because your friends are taking. That's true. Or even if other like if your other friends of dropping the class, and you really wanna do it do it. Do do. That's what happened. Everybody was dropping APO, all so. You're about to. I was actually I was. I think you should surround yourself with good people because I come most of them all freshman year, but. I don't know. There's still some negativity like the groups. I like the people I always open. And I think that just messes, you up like build stuff on Dacian for your high school experience in all so for any freshman either going into freshman year, but mostly just for freshman going into softening year, I would say, really trying to find what you're passionate is try to find what you're interested in what you want to study what you want to major in, or just any anything that, that you enjoy doing and try to do it really well and set up your classes so that you take classes that would benefit you and whatever, you're interested in and don't take classes, just to take the hard ones. Don't take all honors, if you don't need to learn about AP chemistry. Because in the end I. I think you should use your time to study independently what you want what you want to study because in the long run that would help you allot because that way when it comes time for college admissions, you will have already been working towards what you're passionate, and you will definitely stand out more as student than someone who just takes all a P classes, but doesn't have many other hobbies and professional as going into sophomore year that did take those hard classes that of where hard for them. Just keep pushing don't give a even though it's hard. You just got to keep on pushing it just don't give up. Yeah. And the annual learned that you'll be able to do it right now. It may seem that you're not able to, but trust me in the new will. And if you're bad a math, don't take hard math and because I made them as stake of taking a mad class that I probably shouldn't have to 'cause I gotta see in that class and I almost got a DEA one point. But the teacher was nice enough around it. I think so. You know, be careful with your mask, skills or science, skills are English skills or any other skill because you do not wanna fail that class 'cause it's not good. It would not it would not be enjoyable anyways. So this is will be a pretty short episode because honestly, there's not much to talk about on this subject, and we're all feeling a little uninspired today. So. Isaac is in here too. So maybe that's what usually when he hasn't here. It's just a mess. So any announcements while you could give us a review on apple podcast, if you're nice, you could buy beanie, if you wanna support us, just go to teenager therapy dot com? You could also tell a friend about our podcast, that would be really helpful. That would be really nice of you. And as always you just continue to set the bar higher. The follows on Twitter, follow our YouTube channel do this summer. I wanna make you to videos. We have to do it on, really want to do it. We have to Kayla. We're doing. We're doing video podcast way happening. We're doing it. So you got to look pretty take a shower beforehand, and stuff like that challenges challenge. And they video. Video.

Writers: How to Move from Making a Living to Driving Revenue

"Rainmaker. FM. This podcast is brought to you by copy blogger dot com words that work build your online thority with powerfully effective content marketing get superior content marketing education, so you can build a remarkable online presence head offered a copy blogger dot com to learn more, that's copy blogger dot com. There. It is great to see you again. Welcome back to copy blogger FM, the content marketing podcast, copy builder FM is about emerging content marketing trends. Interesting disasters and enduring best practices with UK shnell rent. My name is Sonia, some I'm a co founder and the chief content officer for copy blogger media, and I share more writing as well as a complete additional archived podcasts at remarkable dash communication dot com. So I gave a talk last week and one of the things that I was talking about was the distinction between professional writers and conversion or ROI writers, that professional writers right to make a living and conversion writers right to generate revenue and actually kinda thought that was interesting idea. So I thought I'd unpack just a little bit today. So a professional writer is just anybody who gets paid to write. You know, so that would include novelists and screenwriters and certainly lots of blog writers and all kinds of other professional writers. A conversion writer is somebody who's writing to generate revenue. So they're not ready necessarily, like I read some words, you send me a paycheck and I buy groceries, but I write words we put those words out into the world and we hope that they generate revenue. And if they don't we test, tweaking adjust until they do. So if you are writing for a living, but that living is not that amazing. It may be the thinking of yourself more as a conversion writer, and putting your episodes in some different places could make a really significant difference in higher seem professionally and also how you get paid professionally, and that could be, you know, for those of you are on a team like a marketing team or your writer inside an organization certainly for freelance writers, a lot of freelance writers, don't see themselves this way. And I really affects the kind of rates that you. Charge and it's even you know, significant factor for people writing for their own thing, where you have a side hustle, or you have a full-time business. You're the chief, you know, most important marketer for your predator service, the things we're gonna talk about today are just a little bit of a tip of the iceberg of things that you can do to generate more revenue with your work and not just necessarily create a paycheck for for today. So I talked before about thinking of writing as soft skill, I think, is really undervaluing. It writing is how money is made on the internet. Very little money gets made online, without a piece of writing critics series of transformations, but as a writer that has to be your intention, if you're gonna make it work that intention of generating real business results with the words that you put together because it doesn't happen all by itself, and a phrase that I've used on. This podcast. And I use it a lot on the copy blogger plug is a conversion content. Marketer, a content. Marketer, you're creating things that are interesting that people want to pay attention to, but you're also conversion oriented writer, who's thinking about the customer journey and thinking about moving people through to purchase. So there are some content, you know, gurus or teachers who try to tell you not to so with your early content, and I think that's probably a mistake. I think if you are creating content, you should sell something with it, but typically in the early days of your relationship with an with your audience. It may not be the product or service, there other things that we sell the content before we get to the point of starting to make an offer. So as a conversion or it had content marketer. There are a lot of things you can do before you start talking product or service to basically. Smooth that journey. Ford he needed to be thinking about things like what to people need to believe in order to move forward with his transaction. How do they need to change their thinking in order to move forward and make the purchase content can do a lot of different things to make a transaction more likely and to convert higher percentage of your audience tear products and services? So I'm just going to talk about three today, the just kind of gets us rolling content builds relationships. It can move a prospect through stages of awareness, and it can segment your audience, so that you can deliver them more relevant messages. So let me kind of unpack each of those so that they make sense. Relationship building is the easiest one, I think most of us think that this is the job of content is to build the relationship with the audience so that they will kindly on us when there is something to sell people do get to know. Your company when you create content. They learn about your values they learn about what goes into making your product or your service, and why it's valuable and they learn about your the way that you do things the way that you think is the best way to solve their problems content is kinda unsurpassed for delivering feeling of safety and feeling safe is a necessary pre requisite to going forward with some behavior that might make you a little nervous like making a purchase, people do not buy when they do not feel safe. And that's even more true for certain kinds of businesses that help people, you know, where they're vulnerable so businesses that help people with their health, or their relationships or finances. When people feel vulnerable, they really have to feel safe and order to move forward with you and content is really brilliant for helping people have that feeling a safety. It demonstrates that the organization cares about their prospects. Wellbeing. It very often will provide some early wins without the person having to pay. So let a times content will move people a little ways toward their goals for free with advice. And, you know, tips and techniques, these kinds of things that can help people start to move in the direction, they want and contact can also show, how other people have successfully moved forward and how they've benefited from that. And these are things like customer, success stories in case studies in the same general vein of safety. When you have a relationship with your audience with content you can typically afford to be a little bit more transparent and a little bit more of sort of Dudley do right about your data and privacy policies, you can comply with those really strict data privacy laws. You don't have to try them playing games with that, because you have the relationship you don't just have that single shot to make the sale, and I'll give you an example. It's somewhat surprising. To me that into dozen. Nineteen people are still sometimes opposing things like requiring a confirmation of Ogden for Email, the person signs up for your Email list. And then they have to click something in their Email walks to say, yeah, I it's really man, I really would like to move forward. I think opposing that is, is generally mistake, the more scrupulous you are about people's privacy, the more scrupulous, you are about making sure that you have earned the right to communicate with them, the higher degree of safety, that prospect feels and that helps conversions. So when you're just super transparent, and scrupulous that comes through, and people feel less nervous about doing business with you and about, you know, giving you something sensitive like a credit card number. I also wanna talk about his in content in your sales cycle in your whole customer journey. The whole thing, you know, from beginning to end where people sort of find you. Maybe they find plug posed that you promoted on Facebook and their journey all the way through to learning about your product your solution. You're, you know, benefits, your features and then onto making the purchase and then even beyond that to referring there. Friends to making a repeat purchase. So this is the customer journey. This is the whole road that they follow to get to you and content can facilitate transformations at every step along that path. So we think about content as top of the funnel exercise to get of people to pay attention to our company, and then they opt in for more sales material, but you can get a lot of mileage out of using content to guide people through all of those stages of awareness. So that's the second thing. We'll talk about today is the prospect stages of awareness, as they move closer and closer to making that purchase and I recorded a whole podcast on this. So if you point your browser to copy blogger dot FM, you can find this episode, and I will link to that, once you can find it is Louie, and the stages of awareness are just moving people through from things like they don't even know they have a problem. You know, then they learn more and more over time. They learn about the, the problem. Solution your specific product and how you solve it and then all the things they need to know to move forward and content again, can educate them at hold their hand at every step along that path. That's a very respected proven copywriting path to make purchases. Specially purchase for something that's beyond a no brainer. Like a new T shirt is very common for content creators. Let's say bloggers podcasters video channel on publishers to have people who are at many different stages of awareness in your audience. If people are just beginning to kind of think about this problem or opportunity. And then you have people who've done at Totta legwork already, and they're just finalizing their buying decision. So commonly, it's smart to if you have this kind of general audience, we certainly do a copy blogger, you know, put on your editorial calendar, a good mix of content that speaks to people at the different places. They are today. And then, even better sequences of content they can opt into that will help guide them through that education process so they can move forward with all the information. And again, there's an earlier podcast episode in that really kind of walks through that whole stages of awareness process. It's a really smart, and useful way to think about your audience, and think about what they need to know when they need to know it, and then the final thing tuck about today, because it is so powerful and again, we're scratching the surface, there, lots of things content can do, but one of the things that's lovely that it can do its consignment, your audience for relevance. For more relevant information about their specific problem and their specific where that they want to solve it. So this is where you have blood content. Again, YouTube videos, you know, Email messages podcast up Assode 's if person clicks, a particular like to a piece of content they click a link to. So content that addresses a specific solution or a specific problem. You now know that that person has an interest in that problem. And, and in that solution you could start to send them relevant messages about that without bugging, the entire rest of your list was been, it's not relevant to them. So if you were, you know, content website is about beverages in oh, you write a blog post about green tea, it would be great to tag people clicked through to that blog post. Let's say from your, your blog posts by Email subscription. Everybody clicks, the green tea post, you know, they have an interesting green tea. And that's when you wanna send those people, maybe a really nice bundle of interesting green tea options that they might you know, one explore the decaffeinated coffee, people are not gonna want to get, you know, a coupon for your triple calf, you know, extra caffeinated product. Right. You can segment by what's relevant to that person. And you know what's relevant based on what they've clicked through to what they found. Interesting. Obviously, this requires a couple of tactical things you have to have a good robust platform. It lets you take people based on clicks and then send them relevant sequences, and I would also really advise look at your headlines for the kind of campaign, and make sure it's very clear, and you wanna do that anyway, you wanna make it absolutely crystal clear, what benefit people will get from clicking on the link and that way, when you tag them, you know, you're taking based on a real interest. It's not a good practice in any event to ever be deceptive with the headline, but of course, it would also mess up your analytics because you'd be segmenting on the wrong thing. So all of these are different ways you can use content again, to support the entire customer journey. And so often what we think of is selling happens, the very end of the journey. Right. When they're ready to make the purchase when they're ready to add cart when they're ready to complete the transaction. But Why's sales people know that. Selling is about relationships first and foremost, it is about relationships and trust always, and that selling happens over a long period of time. And realistically, there's only so much urgency and scarcity any of us can muster to push people. It's really actually a lot smarter for most of us to nurture that prospect through the entire journey to give them content that helps them make key decisions that move them closer to us at the various points in their journey. And then when it's time, yeah, absolutely go ahead and give them a little incentive help, make it easy to say, yes, but don't aglet that entire journey that leads up to that sale, and before I sign off for the day, a pro tip for anybody who wants to be a conversion writer and not just somebody who gets paid to put words together every piece of content needs a call to action. So every piece of. You create should have something or asking people to do, and those calls to action always depend on the stage of awareness. So you don't ask somebody to buy a product. If they're still kind of figuring out what their problem is instead, you would have a call to action to find out more about different ways they could solve that problem. And of course, the wonderful thing about digital organizations, is that clicks can be measured, and we can look at these clicks can start to say, you know, in my customer, journey, I'm getting really, really great response here. But they seem to be falling off at this stage of the journey. You can create content that helps build that bridge, and helps make it feel safe and comfortable to move forward all the way through all of your content is persuasion copy, or at least it certainly could be so go forth. Get some more persuasion is revenue generation endear content. If you feel some mood, you can. You can swing by copy blogger done FM, and let me know how it's going, I would be just tickled to your comments, and see what you're doing with this stuff. Thank you. Take care. Catchy next time.

We've given our listeners a little overview totem about your professional history. We like to start the show with having you tell us in our listeners why you enjoy helping people improve their relationships. Well, I went through a divorce about ten years ago and. I just got really passionate about helping other people just maneuver about better relationships and going through divorce also becoming a parapet. And so I just started to white in blog about love and my revelations. And it's like I just heard two truck people who wanted to get them coaching or therapy with their relationship. So it kinda just happened organically. And I really believe in is idea that whatever you go through in mice. If you're able to be there, and and learn from that, and you could actually use that in your story to help other people's so that's kind of crap and it's a beautiful story in in. Yeah. It's kind of. Fitting to obviously, you don't want to go through a divorce, but we have these moments in life where you experience something. And until you go through it, you don't realize like it's a thing like until your relationship suffers you don't really realize like there's this whole thing around relationships and like doing them better. And and obviously when you're experiencing it personally magnifies that can magnify it. And the fact that that you were training to be at therapist and Sarah. And I have in a way felt that way where we didn't think a lot about relationships until we started doing this. And until we got married, and then it's like man, they could do this way better. And that's why we love. Yeah. I think a lot of people see the boars or breakup as is Hughes trag- tragedy and the guns basecamp. Stale here or defective on their forehead and not true. You know, relationships expire, and it creates a lot of rich soil for you to reexamining and learn and what your contribution was the expression. My horse was actually the best thing. That's happened to me as far as we position me and sending on my my he journey. I would've total child man boy when I was buried, and it was in the divorce. That was the first domino in, you know, actually, kind of become a man, you know. Yeah. Sometimes we need like something to us out of the funk we've been in or or just, yeah, I'm into a realization like it seems that you have in and you mentioned the word journey, and and that's what it is. It's it's a never ending journey in this process. And we love being able to talk to people like yourselves and and get information for this journey in. Today's topic is one that we've had a lot of listeners ask. About it's one. I've thought about in the past Sarah, and I have talked about personally in our relationship in that is. Being friends with the opposite sex when you're in a relationship. So like if I had a female friend, and then along those same lines being friends with exes or former lovers and how we can navigate that. Because it's kind of like something you see in a in a gossip type magazine like headline like it's like one of these taboo, topics. So I'm really interested. I have a personal take on it. But I'm I'm really interested to hear your professional opinion. So let's dive right in is it straight to it. Poses in helping people with this topic. It's it's it's a big one. So here's the thing. I had the general rule that a lot of people wanna be friends with their exes, and I get that. But I think a lot of people on its with themselves or their intentions. I think you could be friends with your ex if you grew your dating currently and your ex and his or her partner can actually go on a double date and actually have a great time. You know, I think at that level without any kind of jealousy, or you know, any that are, you know, other that are not friendship related. So I think a lot of people wanna be friends with their exit, and then, but they don't realize they have feelings for them, or they're, you know, keeping someone kind of in their back pocket excetera, and you're not being friends with someone. And also, I think a lot of people after the relationship you don't time they could be with their. X and it's only going, you know, couple of weeks or maybe a couple of months and sticky comes back in, and you know, it's fair to whoever they're dating or themselves because they end up being like picking scabs, and they don't heal. There's obviously a lot to unpack here in. I think you just gave us in our listeners a great framework to ask yourself like could you go on a double date with your ex in their partner and everyone have a good time because. Yeah, it's like, yeah. I wanna be friends, and I'm just going to go and hang out with them like or talk to them. But it's it's my own thing, and my is not involved, and if they're in a relation of their partners not involved, and then it's like it's like a lot of things in relationship. It's it's not open. It's not open communication. It's like I have this secret relationship, even if it's not romantic with someone that I used to be romantic with and like you said there can be all different. Situations. Maybe they're still feelings there. Are you name it? But I think just asking yourself that question. Will put all that BS aside. And it'll be like, oh, well, no that won't be a good situation. And. It also like when you say you want to be friends with your ex 'cause there's different levels about here's Jeanne warm to be friendly and locates them once every six months, or do you want them to be active friend, your light? And you want them to be friend your life. Do you have any? Do you want that to be an ethic? Friendship. You have to be okay with, you know, say going on a double date and going bowling and see your ex holding hands or kissing curtain partner and being happy for her in most people. They're not they're, you know, yet, they wanna be without then it's like, well, how can you be friends with them? If you're jealous or have, you know, all these other feelings that that it's not gonna lead the soil for a healthy wrenches. How would you go about initiating this conversation with your partner and saying like, hey, I wanna have a friendly relationship with my ex and I wanted to be okay with you. And let's say that other person is not okay. How do you go about that dialogue? I think you have to be on. With your partner in your feelings for your ex where you're at you know, I think if if you don't want to be friends with my ex, and that's it and you put a period there. There's gonna be a lot of questions. Right. But you're like, listen, I have no feelings for my ex. We are now friends we've healed we've moved on. This is why and be friends with her, you know, etcetera, maybe we were friends before we got into intimate, and then your partner can understand, and maybe, you know, support and courage that, but if you're just like, I wanna be friends with annex you not bad. It's my life there. It's probably not good way to go in. So what if you do still have feelings for your acts, like you're happy with your partner, your super happy in reason relationships are hard is because they involve a motions and feelings we can't control those a lot of the time. So let's say we we love our current partner. But we still have like these feelings for our ex how. How can we talk about that with our current partner? I think it's not fair if you have feelings, even if they're, you know, residue feelings with your acts. I think it's dangerous. I don't think inserts your partner, we're spending time with that person. With your ex I think it goes to the question why? So basically, why are you what are you friends with your ex if he and you, and this is where you really have gone with yourself if you wanna be friends with your ex because she or he the navy person. And we've always been a great friend missing a friend. And and you can, you know want wanna continue to build that? I think that's great. If you wanna be friends with X because you can just in case, whatever you're now, those workout or you want to be friends with your ex because you know, you're still attracted to them on a certain level, or maybe you seek their approval and validation depending on dynamic their relationship. And there's something that you want from your ex or maybe getting something for you're not getting current partner. All of those things are going to be too. Dangerous territory because when you have that emotionally, you're setting yourself up for that to grow, and certainly you know because you're in your accent history. You guys get into getting emotional touched again or physically, and it's not fair to shoot into love. So can we talk to our current partner about it? So rather than reaching out to our ex and having, you know, aside relationship, even if it's just dialogue or motion. How about just talking to a partner? Like, hey, I I I want you to know I still have feelings for this person. And here's why like how does that conversation go or should it even happen? I think that's a tough conversation. I don't think it's needed. Because once you say you for someone else doesn't matter who it is. You're basically saying, I'm not, you know hundred ten in this emotion. I think there's something that you shouldn't. Tell your partner, but you shouldn't be talked about you know, what I'm saying. 'cause it's gonna harm to relationships. And I think that's one of them. You know, if you still have emotions and feelings for your acts, and you wanna hang out with your ex. I don't think you would tell your partner that they're like, I don't know how that conversation would be helpful in any way. I think that's something you this with therapists and figure stuff out on your own to make the decision either that you want you actually in your life or not it seems like it's almost a red flag to me if somebody is telling their partner that they have feelings for their their acts that maybe they're not maybe they're not in the relationship. They should be in right? Or maybe they haven't had enough time to to really, you know, clothes or he'll or move on you know, they're still residue there. Now, do you think that if you are already friends with your ex like time, it's Brian and now friends, and then you need someone right? Then. All the right to continue to be friends with your ex if that makes sense like if you start getting someone after the friendship is established, then they're meeting you, and the, you know ex been your life is to meeting as your life is ready. So you've mentioned these words a couple of times. And and I wanna point it out in in you said history the shared history, and and time so two of those things I think it's important for people listening to realize like you might be listening like I really just want to talk to my ex miss them. And and your recently broken up and for the right reasons, they're not the person for you. Sometimes you just need time to distance yourself from like the tat the very deep emotional attachments that that can take place in. It's not necessary. Early. Meaning like that. That was a good relationship. It's more that you were attached to the validation that they gave you or you were attached to the place that you live together. Like, there's all these things I had this experience that I I lay to realize with an X era, an IOT talked about it that a lot of my interest in in or like, I guess attachment is the easiest word to use was because the time we spent together was in traveling in another country. And I later realized like those experiences were tied in with the relationship that we had and it was almost more. So that time in my life. I was young. I was the first time travelling in a new country that that was like a big part of my attachment to that. That person that makes sense. Yeah. Yeah. And you know, here's the thing. A lot of our ECS is created, you know, the deepest imprint right in March with powdered snow before we met the one that that you know, who are socks off. And it turned out that that relationship was called opinion on that a lot of the toxic. Unhealthy relationships. Have the most itchy right? They produce the most glue, and those it's it's hard to be friends with those X's because of the dynamic, you know, what I'm saying to people have changed so much that they just completely different. So that then everyday difference is it the same. You're gonna fall into a comfort almost like they were drug, and you are realizing and a lot of people aren't don't. Dismissive of the power of that. And they're like, oh, yeah. You know, it's okay. On first starting you know there and suddenly before that, you know, that attraction or the draw, and it may not even be love, you know, obviously that didn't work. There was a reason why it's just that codependence. You know, animalistic may be and draw is. In the same pattern. And maybe you meet your partner for you. And it's like, nothing's changed. And then you guys break up again. So that stuff happens all the time too. It's so funny that you say that because I feel like among my girlfriend's the most toxic relationships are the ones that I see them struggling the hardest to get over. And it makes sense. Because like you said, it's just captivating and harder for them to move on. And yet is there anything else you wanna add on add onto that as to maybe tips for them. Yeah. I think if you if the past the breakers, I call it the breakers like, you know, the ocean you get it through breakers to reach calm wires. And if you're in a relationship, and it's healthy in you used to unhealthy. It was gonna be a lot of turbulence you gonna feel a lot of resistance of familiar. You might have you know, you mother take that for traction task. That and you actually start to really peel raiders and starting loving deeper creamy definitions of love, maybe you're, you know, maybe experienced spiritual then that deepening once that is healthy. I think can Crips anything that's unhealthy, but you have to this win. They're right. I think it takes time. I think it takes a lot of getting to know someone on you know, on multi layers, if you're just used to the initial attraction and today, I really believe in this low burn over the lightning in the bottle. And usually when you see someone, and and you know, you just lose track of time and the guy the person guy or girl blows you away. And you're like, this is the one I feel like there's a lot of stuff happening underneath that this functional and crazy that your son aware of and that's where it's coming from. Yeah. It's interesting that you say that we've talked about it in the past. But I've definitely I think Sarah would agree that our relationship has been the slow burn. And you know, and in the beginning of our relationship, I in even later on I would sorta questioned that or or wonder like men like why? Not that this is bad. But like why isn't it like, I can't breathe without you? And so much of that is colored by coacher. And and what we see in movies in the fairytale stuff in. There are relationships that are like that. And and do last forever, and that's a beautiful thing. But I think it's important to realize that it doesn't have to be that way in and like you said like if it is the other way where it's just like Superintent, there might be other things it's not to say that always the case. But that you're just overlooking. And a lot of things. Because, you know, our motions are are strong in the way that you guys met or or the example, I use of travelling in another country, and it's like these new experiences and. Could be the bad guy on a motorcycle. And like, that's like thrilling. And but the reality is he's just a bad guy. And the motorcycles not terrible husband. So, but yeah, it's an interesting point when you feel like I can't live without you wanna be with you every day all of that. I think that's young world. I think that comes from moving yourself in someone and lose yourself in someone that's that feels as the it's like cocaine. I mean, there's so much dopamine shooting troop rain, and it's also very romantic, and it's you know, it's kind of war being programmed and movies and media what my feels like, but that's actually not healthy love. And I think that comes from a place of feeling feeling holes in ourselves that comes from maybe something snows from Yulia dysfunction from us growing up like a lot of other things. And usually those relationship. Where it's like, so like, so so many so much fireworks. We just can't be away from the personnel. You physically get ill ago gonna relationships. They don't have legs that's stain -able. I mean, I think that that's where a lot of co-dependency control Josie in all of that, you you are two people coming together and kind of Michigan to one person and that being sound Antic, but it's actually completely unhealthy, and and not sustainable, so I just wanna bring it back to to what you said at the at the beginning as far as being friends with your ex. Of his there's a ton unpacked like you said family history. Our childhood attachments. To think about with with each individual case. But if you can ask yourself, if you're like, how should I should I not, you know, try to have this relationship with my ex if you can go on a double date and everyone's cool with it. I'm both sides. And it's like a good thing. And you're not lying to yourself. And it really truly is then that might be something to pursue. But I just think that's valuable thought exercise or and then maybe in you think it's good and then put it into practice in. And it's not good, then you'll know pretty fast in real life too. Yeah. You had that yourself if you wanna be friends with you, why if you want to be friends with your expertise to build a solid authentic friendship and no longer romantic or see each other in that way. But the friendship is solid that's fair. And I think that's valuable if you wanna be friends with your ex because you wanna take chance or you want insurance or do you want approval validation, or you know, there's something happening. You feel like you feel bad or whatever it is. Those are not reasons to be friends with anyone if you're not going to be good friend. Exactly. So. We could go on and on about this and all the different angles in their important. But I want to leave it there in in that super valuable as far as being friends with your ex for us in our listeners to think about let's talk about being friends with the opposite sex. So let's say I in turn have talked about this. And I used to think that you couldn't do it because there's always like this sexual attention, but my views on that change. But I'd like to hear yours as as far as if I had a female friend that was just like a friend that I don't know I met at the at the gym or wherever, you know, you meet friends. Is that is that kosher is that something that can go on that? I wanna tell you about today's sponsors. Today's episode is sponsored by babble. It's the new year and you guys got resolutions.

Today's episode is also brought to you by audible love bit of look like if we all listened more. No. I could work on that. I think we all could it'd be a better world, and there'd be a lot more happy relationships. Yes. I would listening to audio books. Inspires us motivates us even brings us closer in our relationships. And there are a lot of books we recommend on the show in a lot of them almost all come in audio book form, and there's no better place to listen than audible audible has the largest selection of audio books on the planet. And now audible members get more than ever each month. They get three titles of their choice. One audiobook to audible originals and fitness programs. They can't get anywhere else. There's never been a better time to experience. Audible try it free for thirty days by visiting audible dot com slash I do or by texting I do to five hundred five hundred. That's awful dot com slash I do or text. I do to five hundred five hundred. Yeah. I mean, I don't think we should limit us having friends based on gender. I mean, that's that's I think it's ridiculous. Of course, you could be friends with I think that we get something from, you know, our guy friends that we don't from our female friends, and we get something for female friends, we give from our friends, but just as people gender aside. Everyone's different. And we shouldn't not be friends with someone because they're offered that gender. You know, again, it goes back to why why are you friends person the person because because she's hot And you were then that's you know, if you if you are if you are, and you are. Cheating someone else. And that's going to bring you lot of patient. If you're with someone because you guys are great friends, and you had, you know, get something from this person. And it's okay to get something from a friend that you don't with your partner. I think that's totally. Okay. It doesn't it doesn't make you do your partner less or who you choose a love. Maybe you have a friend that whole areas is the opposite sex. But that doesn't mean that you wanna sleep with that person or love that person. You just you know, maybe should the same sense of humor. And that's totally okay. Or maybe a common of passing from word or cycles that you don't with your say your wife. That's what that's okay. And do I have to be okay with that? And your wife should also be able to have guy friends that she has some things in common with and that there she wants to sleep with them. You know, I think the key as you alluded to is to be honest with yourself like are you you I want Rennes with this? Woman because I like a personality or because I'm a tract it tour in in. It's you know, it's funny. It's like we have this relationship with ourselves. We I mean think about that same lie to yourself. That's pretty like. It's pretty interesting. But we do it all the time. And and that would be an example of like, oh, yeah. I'm just I really like her personality but deep down. It's like, you're you're track did in in deep down, you know, that. But you're just choosing to nor it or or you know, lie to yourself about it. Yeah. And here thing. This is something a lot of people have struggled here. You are going to be attracted to other people. Besides the proceeds of there's no way around that. There's billions of people on this planet. You're going to be attracted doesn't even fall in love. But you're going to see attractive of qualities whether it's a FedEx or humor, or you know, someone's drive or whatever just like a day. You know, you're gonna run into someone at Starbucks and things like, oh, wow. She's very transit or she has a nice smile. He has a nice blind, whatever. And I think that's that's being tune in. And I don't think that we should more. That's or stuff Rassett or deny it because when you do it just amplifies it, right? And then there's a lot of people walking around with your shame because they have found people track. Did that the that the, you know, not their girlfriend or wife, that's very different than choosing to love someone? So, you know, love loving someone and as you through the world, you're going to be attracted to. Many people. I love that you say that because so often when you think of traction, you think of physically and not really the other attributes that people can bring to the table like you said humor or certain type of personality. So love that you explain that. Because it really can. I think make people look at it differently. Like when they become friends with somebody of the opposite sex. It may not be because they're physically attracted to them. It could be they have a really great personality or they're funny, or they whatever, you know. It's it's viral and appreciating someone noticing gifts, right? And and and and do the manager noticing their ass or no seeing their passion for something. It's okay. It doesn't mean that you want to build a life with that person. It just means you going around the world awake and noticing, and that's like that's not gonna stop. And also you have to be okay with your partner being attractive to people. To finding people at tractive. And if you're not you're gonna have a lot of anxiety. You know, you're you're gonna you're gonna create torture and suffering for yourself. So how do you call about hanging out with the other person of the opposite sex like how do you talk about that with your partner? How do you schedule the time? Like, how does that work for me? If I have if I if I have a partner who won't allow me female friends to me as a red flag in the the part with the partner that I'm eating of to me. That's a sign of insecurity, control jealousy. All of that stuff. It doesn't mean that it doesn't negotiable. But then there's the conversation there. You know, I think that a yet to be I arms with yourself. But then you also have to be honest with your partner, you know. And here's the thing Jozies. Okay. It's a feeling like anything else. It's the Joe's behavior. That's not. Okay. So we are also. Going to be Joe is if partner, you know, I don't know talking to some, you know, someone that we think is like be intimidated by or that has something that we don't etcetera and that feeling is temporary. And that's okay. And I think it's okay to even talk to your partner about feeling jealous. Not for them to do anything about it. You know, it's your own stuff, but it's a jealous behavior. So now, if he starts to be controlled any or you tell your partner that you know, she can't wear this or that. Then that's that stuff is talked to that stuff is damaging one of the it's it's a bigger broader topic or idea is, and you alluded to a little bit is that we're human, and we're going to be attracted to other people in this is a bit along the vein of open relationship, and or just not even open, but different a different look. Doc on monogamy, and it seems to be more and more in the popular culture. And and it's a very hard time right now. Yeah. And so into me fits into this conversation a bit like everything we're saying is in the lens of a monogamous relationship. And can we do this? And and it is interesting. That this conversations happening and people are trying different forms think. It's Dan savage monogamous, so different forms of monogamy where maybe that friend of the opposite sex is a friend, and sometimes it's more than a friend romantically in the lines get blurred. So where do you sit on this, and how this fits into everything we're talking about? Yeah. So move Unagi be is on trial L right now. There's a lot of conversation about this in a lot of people are are are not. That's and I know why. Because it's not a wiring thing, we're not born to organize, and I'll give me was created by, you know, at the structure, and it's if you if you challenge someone until them that that it's okay to not be monogamous. Usually it. It clauses whole house of cards. Right collapses. The the the picket fence, it classes that will Amy Jove hackery ever after on so people really hold onto with two hands. I think the Malcolm's practice, right? I think if the daily practice, and I think that it's okay to talk about other. Other types of of of of loving, you know, other types of relationships. So when you're probably or open, I I think it's depending on what you what you liking what you want and what works for you. You know? But this stuff we've never really talked about before and society, but it's become a big topic today. I think partly because of our culture, partly because we are actually starting to have more non-negotiables. We actually didn't seem to ourselves. We're not asking questions were curious about what some other ways of wanting someone looks like so in all conversations editor good, you know. I don't think they're things to be afraid of you know, what you want and we'll review and also works for you may be different fighters now, and that's okay too. It's an interesting area of conversation and research, and and I guess real world. Examples for for and I and I read it's I guess it's more kind of the bible of open relationships. It seems like is sex at dawn. Chris Ryan, which is like an anthropological look at that looking at other primates in human history. And how it led us to like you said the cultural contract monogamy, and what is our true nature and in. It's interesting to me from that perspective because I like to examine a lot of things in in my life in our life and try not to look at what everyone else is doing in more because society doesn't always get it right with a lot of things. And this is an example of I'm not saying, I know what the answer is. But it's interesting to think about in what I would. I'm not advocating for. Either or really, but having an open mind because it really blew my mind was like, oh, there's another way to have overlay ship. And because you don't even think of that because that's not socially acceptable. It's not even known 'em now with podcast, and obviously the internet in these these ideas are being more widely disseminated in in talked about. And it's something that Seren I've talked about quite a bit. And wanna talk about an explorer more on the show because I think it is interesting. And if you look at the divorce rate, that's like whatever it is. It's fifty percent or or over fifty percent, if something if a rocket if you're playing crashes fifty percent of the time, you might be like, maybe this is not we're doing something wrong here, or maybe there's a better way to fly. And that's kind of the way I look at it not even from personal experience. But just looking at those numbers of like wait in. I come from a divorce, you know, parents divorced. So I have that personal experience. But like, yeah, this is not working fifty percent of the time. Maybe I don't I'm not saying, I know the alternative, but maybe we need to explore different ways to do this. Yeah. Yeah. And you know, there's also religion upbringing of things that move stands monogamy as the only way to love our heads. Right. And I'm criminal, and it's something that that works for me now. But I don't know what what how what I'm gonna be five years from now. And I think just kind of being open to all forms just to bring up a lot in unit challenge. Shoot a stretch issue. There's always a good thing because they could also widened your Menges, and it can give you definitions on what love could be exactly. And that's kinda wanna wanted to bring that up in because it does fit into the topic of what we're saying is is outside of. Of of your belief system that you know, and I'm not saying this critically 'cause I've been guilty of it. I think we all have of like, oh, you're not supposed to be friends with your ex like that's like a common sort of theme in relation. Like, no. You don't talk to your expert. You can't have a friend with the of the opposite sex, and or you you can't have a an open relationship. These are been drilled into our heads. And I think if you just have like, you said an open mind, it's gonna make it easier for you to explore that with your partner of like. Oh, yeah. Like, you can have a female friend that you like hanging out with and it's not that you'd love me less or to be with them. I think that's a that goes with everything in life relationships activities trying new things like to have that open mind, but it takes practice. Yeah. I mean, look how far we've come with. I mean, you know, maybe like even in the fifties. The idea of even bidding sex toys into the room, you know, or all of that. And now, it's like there's nothing I think was different ways of loving people open relationships. Now, gimme polygamy all of that. I think, you know, six years from now, it's going to be more of a general conversation and mess of like, there's, you know, less stigma and less like this this weird thing. I think this judgment. Yeah. I think it's already changing an in. That's why love doing this podcast. And that's what opened up the book sex at dawn. I found out. I was listening to I think a podcast and heard about it and this was like three years ago. And I'm I feel like. I'm very open minded person. I I like to, but I didn't really even know open relationships were thing. And and it was like, oh, it's in the same way that like if I never knew that surfing wasn't activity, and then all of a sudden, I saw people ride waves in the ocean. Oh my goodness. 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. So I really wanted to street level and talk about all that and you can find him. I have my own podcast. It's about ending Superfund and stuff there in shock clouds being with this podcast, and it's on, you know, Spotify teams and all that and then across from media just at being so Instagram Petra excellent.

And I'd like to thank you all for joining us here in Rhode three twenty one of the pedal, pixel, photography podcast. Fast. We appreciate you all so much. And thank you offer subscribing reading or viewing us, and I tunes or wherever else you listened to us and that now includes Pandora and radio dot com. And as always we appreciate you hitting that subscribe button do it now, please don't miss a single up Assode as well as telling all your friends on social media and elsewhere and helping to get the word out about this show. Hey, if you I'll tell one person we would double our audience, that's even better. Okay. With that. I'm your host Sharkey James. Let's hit it. If there's one thing that we know about adobe aside from light room having been slow for so long and still kind of being is that they make a whole lot of money. We're talking billions upon billions of dollars and its well earned, and that's not just from having some classic products for creatives like Photoshop and light room and after facts at cetera. But in recent years, it's from their subscription plan ever since they instituted that. They're making money hand over fist. But they never seem to have enough myself. I pay nearly fifty three dollars each and every month for the creative cloud plan with all those darn apps even ones I don't use. But, hey, if I need them they're there. So there's that I don't mind though, because I use light room and audition at this show, for instance, Photoshop here in their use adobe after facts, it's okay. It makes sense to pay fifty three bucks a month. But if all you need is Photoshop light room. Mm-hmm. Hands down, and I've said this for years now. One of the best deals in all photography has been there photography plan nine dollars and ninety nine cents a month. And you get light room CC light room classic CC, which most of us use Photoshop CC. And you get twenty gigabytes of cloud storage. Well, you did or you can kinda sorta for now at least we don't know. And I'll get to the nuances that in a second here, but a second after that you might want to lock in the photography plan at a very reasonable price of nine ninety nine a month because now's the time to act and this is not an ad, by the way. No one knows exactly when or if adobe is going to change that. So now, it'd be the time to act as this episodes released in early may of twenty nineteen if you go to adobe dot com, and you're used to seeing that plan list that has nine ninety nine a month. You might actually now see it at twice that at nine hundred ninety nine a month. Myself. I still see the old price. But not everyone is. So it's clear that adobe is doing some AB testing here that is they're serving up that page equally or maybe not equally with each price. And they're saying how that affects their sales most companies do this or a lot of companies do and no one really notices. But when you're a massive company like adobe in your high profile it gets noticed word gets out quickly. And everyone's hair is suddenly on fire. And if you just paid twenty dollars a month for the photography plan, and you hear this and realize that people paid half of that earlier today, even that might make you kinda sore. I think it would definitely be worth it to talk to somebody at adobe and see if you can get the old price. I would now you may recall that the nine dollars ninety nine cents plan. I emerged way back in twenty thirteen as a special limited time deal. But it was such a massive hit with photographers in digital artists that the company made the deal. Permanent. Well, semi-permanent might be a better term as a in the future that's going to increase like everything else does and be it looks like that might be happening soon. Maybe we'll see and rather than a modest increase of say twenty five percent, which really isn't that modest? That's quite the increase. It looks like it's going to be a hundred percent if they go with this new pricing. In other words, a doubling of the price. So rather than the roughly one hundred twenty dollars a year, you may soon be paying two hundred and forty bucks a year. If you're a business owner, okay? That's still sucks, but whatever it's a write off. But if you're an enthusiast, and you're not making money with your photography. You may no longer be able to justify paying adobe each and every month for their photography plan now that price. So what we're seeing in screen shots is the new pricing offers the same programs as the old pricing. Rather than getting twenty gigabytes of space, you'd have a whopping one terabyte available, and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that when push comes to shove most people would rather pay less each and every month rather than twice as much no matter how much space you're given. Now, the pedal picks the mothership reached out to adobe sales who confirmed that people are indeed seeing different pricing. And if you were saying nine ninety nine before, and you no longer are they say that for now, at least you can click the online chat bubble in the bottom right corner that page and ask for that nine dollars ninety nine cent price again, that's US pricing. So my advice would be to snag that while you can if and only if you're thinking about getting that plan. And if you wanna future proof yourself to the extent that you can from this possible price hike, you can do that by going through an authorized reseller like Amazon ad Aram a- etcetera where you can buy a twelve month. Tigra fee plan subscription for a maximum of three years. So you'd be dropping three hundred and sixty dollars US, but you'd also be saving three hundred sixty dollars across those three years. Now, we don't know how long this is gonna last. But if you go to Penn pixel dot com slash podcast, and he hit the show notes reps owed three twenty one. You're going to find a link to a hidden page on a Dobies website where you can still get that nine dollar a ninety nine cent a month pricing. But again for multiple years, you can only do that through a reseller. You can't do that on Dobie site. So what do people think about the potential doubling of the price of the photography plan? Like, we even had asked right? The mothership asked readers would they continue if the price doubled and of the more than five thousand people who've taken the poll thus far. A whopping eighty five percent said no ten percent said. Yes. Maybe and five percent said. Yes. Definitely. And while most everybody wouldn't wanna pay more. More. They may anyhow it's that or look at the number of free and fairly inexpensive options out there. They're out there and more than ever before to. We're talking to Finnity photo. You got luminaires they're so cheap compared to the adobe options. And they're getting better all the time. Now, why would adobe wanna double the price of the photography plan after all these years while money, of course, that or they think they've made a mistake all these years now by charging too little or maybe they just don't feel like they have enough money or something else. I know way to nail it down either way. It is not a good sign when the company that makes the software that you love and know inside and out is thinking about doubling it. No one enjoys that next. For now, still my go-to for a handful of editing photos is that's right because he listened to show skyline. Luminary, you know, the drill. If I have a large number of photos to deal with Colin photo mechanic as light room sucks at that. If we're being honest, and we are and I bring them into light room for some pain. I suspect though, that some point that's going to change I can see calling in photo mechanic for speed sake. Because nothing else beats it right now, then editing and luminaires that subject to change. But that's at least the way it's looking right meow. And if you're a current luminary user, you've got some fun tools at your disposal. Inversion three dot one dot zero Yuri. No that version one dot O accent and luminary was pretty darn impressive. But accent a I two dot CO markedly better side by side. You can see the difference. You know, the training wheels are off now and like most if not all a I artificial intelligence, it's gonna get. Better imagine that. Well, it's not going to get worse. That'd be a really bad sign and also would protect us from sky net. Just saying some people are going to get that reference for everyone else, Google it. You know, here's a crazy thought I wonder if we're ever going to get to the point where AI learns how we prefer to at it. And it just does it for us. I don't think I've ever considered that until right now is that even possible for a I I mean, hopefully, right. Can you imagine shooting like a thousand photos and not having to edit them? It would pick the best for you. And also edit them perfectly. That'd be great who wants to spend more time in front of the computer than they have to unless you really enjoy that the knock yourself out. I mean, even if that is possible you'd have to review the edits and make minor adjustments perhaps. But imagine if you're a wedding shooter, you could knock out your editing time from what is many hours to maybe under an hour per wedding. That's more time with your family or doing anything, actually, right. You can make some progress. You could also book some more gigs getting to the point where hey, I could pick the winners and losers from shoot that's probably not far off easily. Right. That would save us hours. But we're not there yet we're heading that way, though. With the latest version of accent AI though luminaires seeks to help photographers take tasks that took minutes and make those b seconds instead and that heads up and of this skyline Hmm says quote this bite. This current version of accent AI might not be perfect for every photograph with the luminaries three dot one dot zero update. Accent two dot zero changes that becoming completely human aware accent. I two dot zero feature is facial and object recognition technology, helping photographers create more realistic image and quote. So the AI recognizes that a person is in the photo, which is important, and then applies adjustments accordingly and. It works surprisingly. Well, okay. Maybe not surprisingly. I mean skyline is putting a massive amount of effort and dollars into their AI. And we're seeing the fruits of that right here. You know in samples that you can see online or after running three dot one dot zero update accent, a I two dot zero clearly favors opening up the shadows. And not just everywhere in the age. I mean, that's too easy to do. Right. You can do that with the shadow slider. Instead, it finds faces and it opens up the shadows. There. Now, if more prominent shadows is what you're looking for. You can of course, make that happen. You always have manual control over your images. No matter. What program you've using AI or not, and what's cool about what it does is as it's opening up the shadows faces it's knocking down the overexposed sky, for example, and to use a football analogy if the hail Mary pass slider. It's all in you may like it, and you may not, but it's doing a lot at once. And spookily well and its version two oh now the company is calling. It the smartest slider in the world. That's their words, and it might very well be accent AI two zero with this update also allows for more skillful color correction and boosting details. And of that skyler says, quote, if it can't make an object in a photograph looked better it won't be touched with these smart technology improvements photographers can rely on accent more than ever before. And quote. I mean, I don't know it's going to depend on how you shoot. And what you shoot you might like it you might not. But it's definitely worth trying out. I think now other improvements aluminum, three dot one dot zero include a way to easily organize your rob. Plus j peg payers as well synchronizing image just moments across multiple photos. Both of those are in the MAC and windows versions, by the way. And now for windows users, you can copy photos to a folder from within luminary off. Memory card or another drive, and you can now more easily select and de-select select photos in your gallery, if that also great to you. This update is free to luminaires three users. And if you're not yet using luminary the programs this seventy dollars US. However, if you hear this before may fourteenth of twenty nineteen the company is offering it for just sixty bucks also known as the cost of three months of adobe photography plan. If they switch to the double pricing that next. I'm running behind as usual and need to catch up with us. Share your legacy photo assignments. Sponsored by the awesome peeps. Over at Fuji film. But having look at Simon to share your streaks of creativity. There's a lot of beautiful images that are shot by those you out there in the audience it's gonna be hard to compete with. I tell you now before I get to those again, catching up assignment three is share your path, and that's just not leading lines and actual physical paths. But it might also be your path in life, get creative. Whatever your career is whatever drives you religion anything. Remember, very few of these assignments just like anything that we might assign ourselves in our personal work as photographers really needs to be literal. And a great thing that tried one that helps me out is writing down that literal idea and then thinking about what else comes to you not tangentially. But rather constrained to that idea that you wrote down, you know, it's too easy. Easy, of course to go off in tangents. And then suddenly, you're no longer on the theme. Those tangents though are very useful. You know, those are future ideas for shoots right there. So write those down. But maybe circle the ones that go with your theme. Whatever works best for you. Now before I forget I'd love for you to join our share your legacy group overrun flicker. So you can share your photos and also don't forget the new hashtag from assignment to forward, which is my food. You film legacy? All this Infos linked up top at my lend shark dot com site, by the way. So you don't have to write it down right now. Just remember to go there now in looking at the photos from assignment to again share your streaks of creativity over on Instagram. There are so many that it's difficult to choose from. But I love this great shot from our good friend. Timothy owls Brooks shot in Dallas, a vehicle streaking by during a long exposure. It's a really beautiful shot. You gotta see it and norm Hanson photo really came with the goods. There's quite a few great. Stories from him and by injuries. I'm not saying it's contests because it's not. But hint hint, you're gonna want to contribute just saying now in our flick or group the one that I really enjoyed is a gorgeous shot of sunrise breaking through the clouds at Montauk point by Mark Rosen garden, he shot it with his food film XT three which I still haven't received because I did not order it yet. But remember anyone can contribute? No matter. What gear you use? And don't forget Fujifilm's watching very closely and they're going to be sharing their favorites. From our share your legacy photo assignments on their social media channels, which are Jain enormous. So I love for you guys all the contribute. And now I just need to get out there and catch up. What's new next? Just last episode. I told you about canons new reasonably priced rather feature it smaller Diaz lar- assault. Three. What's known as a two hundred D I or a kiss x ten in other parts of this big blue marble that we all share? But that body I thought that would be perfect for a lot of people not most people, but the people that it's right for let's go with that body is even more limited than we thought. And there's a caveat to that which I'll get to here in a second as our friend. Michael Andrew also knows Michael the maven says in the first video that I've seen the call this out the S L three has no center pen, and it's hot shoe. So why is this purposely omitted item from cannon such big deal? You ask well it effectively makes it so only cannon made flashes and triggers are able to be used and there's a caveat to that as well again. We'll get to that in a second. Now. Said another way if you saved your money for a cannon SO three thinking that you can buy an inexpensive set of go, docs, photographs or any other brand triggers and flashes that aren't cannon your SOL as in the sun or soul in Spanish is the only thing that you might be able to afford that again a caveat. And we're getting to that. Now the cannon flashes that you actually wanna use not the tiny town short stack ones gopher two hundred dollars on up usually a lot more than that twice. What you're going to be able to pay for a good third party flash. So now, you're paying two hundred dollars. Let's say for a cannon four seventy E X, which is a really nice flash. And if you thought you dabble an off camera flash also OC f that's going to get pretty expensive quickly because multiple two hundred dollars canon flashes and triggers are going to really add up. So you thought you were saving money and cannon threw a wrench in that plan or tried to at least. And this isn't something that most people would even notice until it's too late. It might even be months later. So Michael myself and hopefully, others out. There are going to get the word out. But that doesn't cover everybody. Most people won't know about this until it's too late. Now, they won't do it. But cannon should almost have a warning on the box or let retailers know to inform consumers on their product pages that the asset three will not work with third party flashes. The center pin that's there on virtually every camera made for decades upon decades now is gone on the S L three. And that's a useful thing to know when you're dropping six hundred dollars on a cheaper camera, and you don't have a lot to spend on cannon flashes. Another useful thing, you know, is that the center pin pretty much just tells the flash to fire, and as a result, you can use almost any flash made by anyone with a standard hot shoe, but in manual mode now. Before you do that, though do some research because there's a certain old vivid tar flash, and possibly some others out there that could do real damage to your camera personally. I would never put a flash that wasn't meant to work with that camera system into the hot shoe. It's just not worth it fired via trigger wirelessly. Yes. In the hot shoe O'Hara CNO now to clarify. I'm not talking about folks, go docs, or any third party flash. Is that are made specifically to work with a cannon body. Let's say a mostly referring to flashes that you might find it a garage sale on EBay, or what have you maybe don't slide that into your hot shoe, bad things could happen? Knock yourself out though with a cheap set of manual triggers from cactus, if they're even still around or whoever else, I also wouldn't chance it with a cable, whether it's in the hot shoe or a PC sync terminal if your camera even has one maybe bad things happen. Maybe they don't you don't wanna find out. So a. Bit of the shine in my opinion, has worn off of the canon S three. If you don't need a set of flashes or you wanna pay double and get one that says cannon on it since they presumably did this to force your hand. Then go for it. That's perfectly. Okay. It's your money. Right. I'm not gonna tell you what to do either way. The Astle three is going to be a great camera. But check out episode three twenty for the details about that. If you're considering it it'd be a great second body so long as you don't need to use a flash unless you get cannons or jump through bunch of hoops. And we're getting to that still. In fact, we're doing that right now because the caveat is that rather quickly, and we're talking five days later, go docs, found a way to subvert the unnecessary nonsense. It was caused by cannon with a simple for more update that easy, and that's great. If you know that a your docs flash is able to be updated not a lot of people know that and be you pay attention to these things. But thankfully, you listen to the show. Most consumers though, they're not gonna have any idea though by a cannon S three. They'll get a third party flash. And they'll be disappointed that it doesn't work. One of my aims. When I started developing this show five years ago this coming July was to help inform photographers. But again, that's only helpful. If you listen to this show or you find out about it somewhere else. Most people they're just not gonna know. And I don't know why we didn't notice the sooner but cannons E O's rebel T seven, which is known as the fifteen hundred de and the two thousand as well as that kiss ninety and their canon Eos T one hundred which is the three thousand d and four thousand de elsewhere among other things those also don't have a center pin. I say shame on you, can and you know, this is a bad trend, and it needs to be reversed. It's anti consumer in my opinion, and it can be boarded anyhow cannon joss put the darn center pin back in fact offered to at it. If people bring it into be serviced. That'd be a great thing to do. You know, it's just not worth the backlash. It really isn't. So put back next. If you're in the Nikon's e system, which is currently the Nikon's e six and doors e seven you don't have long to wait until I detection, af more commonly referred to as is comes to your cameras via the firm update that the company announced this past January of twenty nineteen Nikon Europe just released a fifteen second long video showing this highly sought after feature which is slated to be released on may sixteenth. And hopefully, it works as well as they demonstrated it, I mean, it could be a lot like the burger you see in commercials versus the one you get in the bag. They toss you at your local fast food joint. What yours doesn't toss you your bag? They actually handed to anyhow, I digress. The point is that not all Implementation's are created equal to say, the least, and what does that have to do with a bag and tossed you nothing not a darn thing. But that's neither here nor there. Let's pretend that did not happen now. As we all know, we're being honest Sony is the undisputed champion of because they've been doing it forever. Now, it just works well forever in merely years, which are like dog years only, they're not. And who knows who's in second place. It seems like a distant second from what people tell me, I know that the IMF in my food you fill next to works. Pretty well. And according to friends who owned the x t three it is much improved. So I'm looking forward to that Nikon's though will see I mean, they're new to the serious Murless game. Right. So we'll cut him a little bit of slack. If it's at least as good as my x t to that would definitely be a wonderful start. They'll eventually catch up. They have no choice. It's go time right now for many years now here on the show, I've talked about how someday the big two would field serious Mierlo systems. We're talking full frame ones. Not the jokes. They had before. And we now live in that world. That's crazy canon and Nikon got tired of Sony kicking their butts. And now they're having to play catch up. That's not fun. They're going to catch up. Like today is not that day. It's coming though. And I suspect that may sixteenth isn't going to be either. We're talking their next generation cameras or maybe the one after that. I mean, it really strains credulity to believe that there is going to be on par with Sony's straight out of the gate. No way. If it is though then watch out the sleeping giant has learned. I suspect it will not though nail. And you've achieved something rather difficult at this point, even Sony would be sitting up straight, and they'll might come as a shock to a lot of people who've guzzled the Kool aid for Sony, but remember Sony as a player in cameras has only been a thing for a few years now and don't get me wrong. I've been singing their praises since the very beginning of the show when I jumped into Sony back when getting into Sony. We'll get you laughed at now not so much. Not at all. Actually. I mean, heck I still own Sony Murless gear, and I'll likely by more in the future. I bounce around like crazy, as you know, it's a thing. But as much as I love what Sony is doing. Don't forget that just because they're the hot full frame Murless system right now that two biggest full frame Diaz lar- players. The two biggest camera companies for decades. Now, we're talking canon and Nikon have serious full frame merely bodies in the game, and they're not just eyeing each other anymore. They're focused on Sony unintended, Sony as wells Fujifilm crop and Panasonic and Olympics and micro fourth thirds, and maybe Pentax way back there. And whoever else have all shown the big to what works, and what doesn't so. Now, what canon and Nikon need to do is implement much of what they've seen works improve on what they can and come up with things. That the others haven't, you know, it's not just Sony that innovates of eventually and occasionally Nykanen cannon will and do they really need up their games big time. So if you're thinking about going canon or Nikon full frame airless now you've got a lot to look forward to now personally, I would wait until the Mark two versions come out before making the jump. Those bodies are going to be that much better. In the meantime, though, and in just a week from now, boom, you've got I f now also in a future update, you're going to have raw video support. But if and only a few pipe it out via HDMI to something like an atom owes ninja five monitor slash recorder, which uses the pro res- rock Kodak, otherwise not you're also gonna have support for CF express memory cards that are going to be rolling out from Sony program digital and whoever else comes out with him this summer, and it's not clear which of those additional features are going to be in. That may sixteenth update. Maybe all of them. We don't know. So stay tuned next recently. I told you about my ten bucks solstice twenty four L that have in that. Really awesome. Blue. That's the one where others can't get your gear from behind. I love that. Well, I did it again. And I got myself yet another ten bag. I know I know it's a second. But I gotta do it. You can't have just one. And before I go further. Remember, you can go to ten but dot com and use the offer code Pedic pixel twenty and you'll save twenty percents off your entire order right now. Anyhow, I got myself a ten by Rhody air case roller Twenty-one, and for good reason to a couple actually I got the Twenty-one specifically because it'll be just fine in the overhead compartment of most airlines around the world. And what makes this particular bag different? Is that air case designation if on the off chance on flying, and it must be checked last minute. It can be and safely. That's the important part right there. That's because ten buzz patented layer wall construction, not only allows them to be safely checked, his luggage. You can also ship them as well. That's out protected. Your gear gears, you can even put four hundred pounds of weight atop it, and it's virtually uncrossable. Now, it'll hold to Diaz LARs with grips or three merciless bodies eight to ten lenses, and that also includes a four hundred to eight all in a gorgeous case says nice luggage. Not steal me cameras and lenses are inside. There's also a laptop in document pocket. Small pockets for excess Sary's TSA approve lock for the main compartment as well. As a braided steel, cable and padlock should you need to secure your bags somewhere? And the wheels are like butter. I tell you there may with high carbon steel bearings inside. So they roll smoothly. And as heat builds up. It's not going to cause them to seize up like with other bags. There's also full grain leather handles on the top inside for comfort a pop outside pouch for attaching a tripod or light stand or what have you? And if it gets wet out, no problem. There isn't included ring cover as well. And of course, this is a roller. There's a telescoping handle. And if you need to attach another bag to this bag, there's a tuck away strap so you can. Catch it now years ago, a friend of mine was forced at check their normal roller. And sadly gear God damage now, thankfully, they had insurance. But if they had the ten by Rhody air case roller Twenty-one, they could have saved the headache and hassle of filing a claim not to mention being without all their gear. So to see what the big deal is all about and watch the video rolling through each and every feature this bag head on over to ten but dot com, that's t- and BA dot com. Use the offer code pedal, pixel twenty and save twenty percents off your entire order right now. Next time is valuable right? I mean at something we never seem to have enough of. I know I don't whether you're shooting part time or it's your full time gig. What if you could reclaim up to one hundred ninety two hours a year of your valuable time a hundred and ninety two hours. Well, our friends at fresh books who make ridiculously easy to use cloud. Accounting software for freelancers are the architects behind this question. And for good reason by simplifying tasks like invoicing tracking. Fences and getting paid online fresh books as drastically reduced the time it takes for over ten million people to deal with their paperwork ten million people, and I'm one of them. I Joe's fresh books because it gets me back to doing what I need to do faster. And I need all the time. I can get these days I told you recently about how they completely rebuilt the fresh books platform from the ground up taking simplicity and speed to an entirely new level with incredibly powerful new features, by the way, one hundred ninety two hours works out to be two working days per month. What would you do those two days get out and shoot more spend more time with family? I don't know fresh books gives you the options though. So why haven't you tried fresh books at I want you to reclaim that time. You're losing and take them up on their unrestricted. Thirty day free trial right now. No credit card is required. In all you need to do is head on over to fresh books dot com forward slash pet- pixel and enter paddocks on the how did you hear about a section? I use fresh books to invoice fresh books, and I want you guys to see why next. I've said it before and I'll say it again. And they love it when I say it because we have such a large audience. But if you're not having a look at the lens offerings of third party lens makers like Tam, Ron and sigma token, maybe not token, oh so much. You're doing yourself and your photography a disservice because I've long since lost count. Like, I was actually counting, of course. But I d sin percentage of photographers absolutely refused to consider glass that isn't all matchy matchy and made by the same company that makes their camera, you know, decades ago, you could definitely make the case for that today. Yeah. Not so much. I mean, sigma art glass is incredible tamarin keeps knocking out of the park. And oh, yeah. The ladder also known as Tam Ron AOM glass for some of your favorite camera makers. So you might already be shooting tamra. You don't even know it now. Oh kina as I indicated still not a big fan. I'm starting to turn. But still I got some really horrible dreams of crappy ugly token glass for my earlier days in photography. They were horrific now in all fairness to them, though, our friends, Sony art is in drew, drew racy who shot the awesome time, lapse intro and house of cards. You guys have seen that before. Right. Great show. He loves his token glass and popular rooftop, or I know are reminded about gravity all the time yet, he still wants the shoot from the tops of buildings. It's says life, anyhow popular rooftop or Timothy all's Brooks is ridiculously happy with his token glass. So I might have to dry some some time. Now, this is all say that third party lens makers are the real deal look at Tam on seventy two hundred to eight G to for instance. That thing is legit. I had a brief time with it. But let me tell you that thing is crazy sharp and at twelve hundred dollars. It's a thousand dollars cheaper than Nikon's is Nikon's a grand better than Tam. Ron. No, no. It's not most people, especially the one that owns it. They're not going to know the difference. So save thousands bucks and put that towards another lens. That'd be great. Now. The latest lens out of the third party lens maker Tam Ron is their new thirty five to one hundred fifty millimeter f two point eight two f four D I C O the model eight zero four three alphabet soup of lands a fairly fast and rather compact zoom for canon and Nikon full frame dias Laura shooters, who don't want to break the Bank. It's just four point nine inches long. Also known as twelve point four centimeters way, seven hundred ninety five grams also as one point seven six pounds has fast, quiet, more precise. Autofocus thanks to its optimize silent drive OS the DC motor. There's a digital MP microprocessing unit behind that af performance and a full five stops of vibration. In compensation five stops. That's amazing. There's a special lens element in there to help deal. With optical aberrations a minimum focusing distance of seventeen point seven inches. Also known as forty five centimeters, a seventy seven millimeter filtered red size and remember by screw on filters in eighty two and get a step up bring or you will be sorry. You will thank me right now for that. There's also a nine bladed circular aperture aim moisture resistant construction, a BB a R broadband anti reflection coating to reduce ghosting and flair to the extent that it can Anna flooring, coding, resist water and oil and of this. The company says quote Tam Ron has applied magnificent craftsmanship to a beautiful intuitive designed to produce zoom with superior look and feel from the outer contours of the lens to the deftly work luminous gold brand ring, the quality. This lens is second to. None even details like the shape of the. A switch box and the precision and stability of the metallic mount reveal commitment to functionality as well as design and quote now, I read that marketing speak nonsense because come on the quality. This lens is second to none. I don't think. So I'm sure this lens isn't their best lens. I'm sure it's really nice. But whoever wrote that marketing mumbo jumbo got a little bit too excited. Perhaps is it a great lens. Maybe their best lens though. Let's hope not and deftly. Who knows what that means? No one uses death. Leany more come on. Now that all aside if this new tamra and thirty five to one hundred fifty millimeter f two point eight to four D, I V C the alphabet soup of land. Sounds good to you. It'll be available in Nikon f mount may twenty third twenty nineteen and about a month later on June twentieth in canon EF mount both of which by the way can be preordered right meow for seven hundred and ninety nine dollars US. Next. Again, I swear this is not a story from two thousand fourteen swear to you. Apple aperture has been off my radar for a number of years. Now, in fact, until recently, it's literally been years since I've mentioned it here on the show why because apple officially killed it way back in two thousand fourteen you know, half a decade ago that after all why would you talk about a program that hasn't received an update in five years. You just wouldn't do that. That's not news. What is news though, is that after MAC OS, ten dot fourteen also known as Mojave aperture will just completely stop working forever. So users who manually upgrade or have their MAC set to update automatically are gonna have quite the surprise. Because if they've been squeezing every last drop out of picture for all these years, they're going to have a decision to make in an article on its support page. Aperture apple has made this announcement. And as a solution. They've provided details on how you can migrate your photo libraries into apple photos, which not a lot of people use or adobe light room. And of the stuck company says quote in June twenty fourteen apple announced the discontinuation of development of aperture since that time apples released five major MAC. OS updates for technical reasons. Aperture will not run in the future version of MAC OS after MAC OS Mojave to continue working with your aperture photo, libraries. You must migrate them to the photos app included with MAC OS or migrate them to adobe light room. Classic and quote, our friends over at macrumors note that this is due to the transition from a thirty two bit to us sixty four bit architecture, and as a result, some files which are in legacy formats or Kodak's and such well, not be compatible with MAC. OS ten fifteen whatever they end up calling that. Now, if you're running light room classic version, five dot seven or later, you've already got a built in tool to migrate aperture libraries in the light room. Catalogs and with some exceptions your library structures. Your meta data, an image adjustments should be retained so with as large as our audiences. There's gotta be a sizable number of people who are still using aperture. And if you are reach out, I want to hear from you all three of you know, it's probably more than that for. Let's go with four. So you're either gonna keep using MAC OS ten dot fourteen Mojave for as long as you can as long as your computer can run it or previous installations of MAC OS. If you're still doing those personally, I'm not on Mojave. I don't even know what it's called that. I'm on it just works. I don't care anymore or what you can do is you can bite the bullet get light room or even a competing program like luminary and just. The jump right now. Either way, I think it'd be wise to start putting some thought into this. And maybe don't have a look at the rumored upgrades that are coming to the new MAC OS because if you like those you're going to have to cut aperture loose forever. I mean after five years come on. Now's the time pull the band aid already. Now before we go don't forget this week's photo assignment. The list of all them is on over at length. Shark dot com at the top of the page.

So without further ado, here's the interview with the Whitney cut Alonzo. Right. So high everybody welcome back from the break. We're here with Whitney cut, Alano, who is already end, who is an intuitive eating dietitian. Helping women recover from binge eating make peace with their bodies break free from their inner bully in create space for the things that truly matter. So thank you for joining us today. Am excited. Yes. So are we happy to have you can kind of start getting into what you do today from your if you could just tell us a little bit about your relationship with your food in your body, growing up in if that affected the work that you do now made you wanna do it? And definitely. So when I was younger, I think I was drawn to emotional eating at an early age because, you know, trauma and things like that. So. I was dawn to emotional eating, which I have found out later that it's just kind of one of the things that kids, learn to do is just go to food, because kids, don't know, necessarily to talk about it or aren't giving the tools to talk about these things. And so, you know, food becomes one of the various ways that we learned to cope. And that was definitely mine. And I think also genetically hunt had a bunch of things at play. So around six seventh grade, I started putting on more weight than my friends around me, and I was always bigger than my friends not to say that I was ever marginalized by any means, but I definitely looked different. And didn't I don't know if I necessarily noticed like it was one of those things where in second grade. The boy that I liked told me I looked pregnant, but I did internalize it. I was just like in second grade. And I didn't understand how someone could be pregnant, and second grade. I just didn't get it. I didn't know what that meant. But then all. All of these things have sort of surfaced over the years of micro. That was yeah. Like here finally, connecting all these dots. But anyway, so I kind of got to this point where all of my hormones kicked in or whatever, happens in middle school where you just become horribly self aware of yourself and just like. Deeply like stuck in your own perspective. I went on my first diet, I told my mom, I looked around and I was like I don't look like everyone else. I don't understand what's going on. And I want to look like everyone else. And so my mom was like, oh, my gosh. And I always tell the story that she, she said that this one thing that sticks out so much to me, which was, oh, you're done. I've been waiting for you to come to us about this. And I was like. Yeah. Sounds good. So that kind of started, you know, I did Jenny Craig did Weight Watchers, I did all of the diets Jenny Craig was definitely, you know, it's always like the first diet is the most successful Jenny Craig was definitely like the successful one for me. But didn't learn how to eat didn't, you know, know anything other than like eat by meals, and I'm going to be skinny, and it was like obsessed focused. And then, of course, I gained all the way back. Plus some looked in the mirror one day and I was like, oh my gosh. When did that happen? You know, try to bunch of different other diets, and then eventually quote unquote, at the time, what I thought was like learning about nutrition in, like my senior of high school. I was like, I'm finally learning how to eat, I'm finally doing all these things like, wow, I'm really, you know, whatever. But I didn't what I didn't realize that time was that what I was learning was obsessive dieting and restricting. That's disguised as health so that like. Really snowballed. When I went to college, I, especially my freshman year of college, I had to wear a dress for thing, and I had to buy the dress like six months in advance and my mom was like, do not outgrow this dress. And so, I was like, counting emotion. Yeah, exactly, like its first year, you know, everyone talks about the freshman fifteen or whatever which I hate. But that was like where my kind of disordered eating like, really dug deep like it really like sunk its feed in for years. I struggled with that. And just, you know, the sort of obsessive relationship food, and I went, and I studied nutrition college, and I thought you know, I'm gonna be able to get this under control to learn everything I need to. And I'm gonna understand because then I started struggling with binge eating as might happen when you're obsessively restricting. So I was like, oh, I mean, I get my eating under control. It's gonna be awesome. Like this is going to be great. I'm gonna learn about nutrition avenue. Help other people with us. And then it just got worse and worse and worse. And I never felt good about myself, and, you know, it kinda -fected all other areas in my life. So finally, you know, the past few years, have been sort of this healing process for me where I. You know, reprogram relationship with food and relief field, myself and understood truly what I was a part of and started researching the movement and learning about intuitive eating and getting, you know, various certifications in teaching and things like that. And it just all kind of clicked into place when I decided to do that. It's like, oh, this is what I'm supposed to be helping other people with not all the basic nutrition stuff that you're supposed to do when you first get your credentials that never really clicked with me at an Phil good telling people what a healthy plate was because I feel like we all know that that's not the issue. So I once I figured that out it really, you know, it just clicked into place. It made a lot of sensory. And now ever since it's and so rewarding. And just it's shaped everything for me. Yeah. Awesome French, narrowing all of that with us. Do you have any follow ups currently I feel like that brings us to our next question about, like southeast? So, yeah. Before that, I would just like I just like I work in, like Kyun occasions, I just like knowing leg where people the messages that they get and how it metamorphasized their brain. So when you were saying that you were oh, I'm like, finally after Jenny Craig learning nutrition in the net went into obsessive dieting. Where do you think or like where were you reading about, like the so called nutrition? I don't know. I remember I did this weird smoothie diet where like they give you a meal plan. And then they, you make a smoothie for two meals than you kind of like weaned off that. And that's where I, I started to learn, like that's what I thought health was, so, and I was so impressionable. I was like sixteen or seventeen. You know. And so that's something where I was like, okay, we'll healthy must being you have one smoothie a day, and two meals. But when I'm really dieting, I do Tuesday these day and one, you know, but now looking back, I'm horrified, but that I was growing up, you know, and like sixteen like that's not how it's just. Yeah. So, you know, various diets, I found online definitely all online, I couldn't tell you what the social media culture looked like at that point, because it's so hard to remember that everything was on Facebook and, and things like that. Like it was so different than it is now. But all online. And then when like you kind of switched and you realized that instead of that you didn't want to do the typical nutrition work that people do in your credentials and you wanna help people like were you was it just kind of internal like a moment that this isn't right? Or did you when was that switch for you or like not when but leg what do you think that came from? So I had already started going on my own healing process. But I hadn't really. Fully done the deep dive into the research. And I just kind of it was happening naturally in, I started my business a couple years ago and I had to pick a direction. So the first year and a half or my business was kind of a mess of I will help anyone who wants to be helped by me. I didn't understand how to run a business yet. I didn't understand what it meant to, like, pick a niche and have a target market and stuff. I got and have a specialty I thought you know, specialties like no one's gonna hire me. I have to specialize in everything. So then I heard of business coach and she forced me to pick a specialty and do that. While be studying that, and so I was kind of weighing a few different things that I wanted to do, whether it's like functional medicine or whatever, and I just found myself continuously going back in reading more about intuitive eating more about binge Eating Recovery, and just listening to podcasts constantly, and, and I was already doing that work in my own life. So I was like, oh, this is I feel like I had to experiment with some. Other directions before I would come back, mealy, duh, I'm do the thing that I'm already doing in my own life. Nothing that I actively studying my free time like that's what I want to help other people with. So it took me a second definitely to make that decision. But once I did, I was like, okay lightbulb. Yeah. Like for on like entrepreneurs that even aren't in this space in just people figuring out what they wanna do with their life. It's they're searching and searching, but it's usually something that's been there all along. Yeah, exactly. We're also definitely not taught that we can like manifest and RAF it even off of the ways that we help in heal ourselves, especially what that's really, not something that's ingrained into our mind. That's so true. And it's interesting to me that I will get some people in my Dion on Instagram and being like, why can't believe you're charging any money for this? You should be teaching about healing for free, and I'm like your perspective on healing is very messed up. And I it's like that's not my problem. And I'm so sorry that that's what you've been taught about healing that this isn't something, you know, 'cause I I've always gone to therapy. I've always paid for therapy. I invest in people to like help me get my head, right? Yeah. So. Yeah learning how to monetize that in my own business definitely took some. I had to come around to that, but now it's now it feels better, but it you're right. It took some time to wrap my head around that. Absolutely. I can imagine it. Did. If people pay for a doctor, they don't see a problem with paying for that. Yeah. They see a problem for you. Medical professional. So how do you think? What you described in which is what so many people go through with problems with obsessing in eating movement. How do you think it affects other parts of our lives, such as self esteem, or even confidence when she in the professional world like how do you think it trickles? How do you see that trickling into other things? Yeah. So that's actually probably my favorite part about what I do. Obviously, I like all this work. I liked the healing part of it. But one of the most interesting things is watching, how people change their lives throughout the time that we worked together, and that sounds really gimmicky, but it actually is true. I have a lot of clients who end up changing careers or leaving their partners or you know, dating for the first time after kind of swearing off dating or just, you know making all these big life changes. Because they essentially what dieting and especially obsessive dieting in this. That's rooted in hitting your body in wanting to constantly fix and change it. You're you've got this daily message coming in that's telling you. You're not good enough. You'll be good enough one day, if you know, it's like conditional worth, you're going to be good enough. If you lose X amount of pounds or like if you eat a certain way, and if you have one thing that doesn't fit whatever is good or clean, or whatever, you're, you're worthless. You're done like you're bad people, always say, like I'm so bad. I've been so bad that really weighs on you that, that gets in your head and that sinks deep, and it's really hard to unlearn that voice in those messages. And so once they do start to learn unlearn those messages, and unlearn the way that they've talked themselves for so many years, they start to realize, like, Wow, I've actually been accepting a lot less than I deserve for a lot of my life. Because I was waiting until I was x y and z in order to deserve more. And maybe I deserve those things right now and maybe worth isn't conditional but it's been here this entire time. And I just wasn't advocating for myself. I wasn't standing up for myself. I was hiding because of p people are gonna judge me afraid that, you know, I was going to expose myself some sort of fraud, because I've been struggling so much internally are I've been failing to lose weight. I've have been failing to control my body or whatever it is. So that is like really fascinating to me, because I think it really extends everywhere to like dating your careers. Putting yourself up for promotions. Like starting a business or being successful. I think there's also this part of it, too, where when you're constantly obsessed about dieting there is no room for other thoughts like that. All you think about all the time. So that's like. Really time consuming. And we gotta get rid of that. Love that. You said, conditional worth still thinking about I know I wrote that down as something that's come up in, like no in social work at all Carly leg that alive. I've, I haven't. I mean, I've thought about. The context of that idea. But I've never really put it towards those youthfully said. Awesome great. Well. In the what you said about. Dieting, just taking up your entire energy like that. I was like wondering if that relates to what you said the beginning about people like starting to improve other parts of their live one day. Once they start like working with you, because they have more energy to focus on other parts of their life because they're not putting all this energy into into dieting and trying to control their bodies slowly. They're not no longer, you know, stepping on the scale in the morning. Maybe they woke up in a good mood. But then the minute they get on the scale it ruins the entire day, and any motivation. And it's like, oh, why didn't get the numbers to move so I clearly failed at this. I'm failing whatever I'm doing isn't working. So there must be something wrong with me. And if there's something wrong with you, then how are you supposed to be able to, like, do all the other things in your life? If you feel like you're failing at this one fundamental thing that. Especially on Instagram and like all these social media platforms seem, so easy people like, oh, I just I lost weight, and I'm magically cured all these things, just like okay. Well, first of all, so harmful second of all, that's not true, not the full story. And I have very I have a lot of issues like before. And after pictures. I don't know if I follow them anymore, but I followed throw while this page called fit girls guide. Oh, yeah, yeah, I'm sure you've maybe heard of them, or that they've anad is popped up. And I commented once and I was like, if you could possibly insinuate that the picture on the left is just as beautiful as the picture on the right. That would make me feel a lot more comfortable in my body to make changes or to do whatever I wanna do, but don't post pictures, that looked like my body insinuate that they're less than. Yeah. So that's a huge thing for me as well. Yeah. And it always comes with this rhetoric to this narrative, that's like, I not only did they lose the way, but the weight loss is the reason why they are so much better change there by nine out or not like all of these things. Well, guess what happens on the weight comes back? First of all, you lose all of that. So and then second of all your implying that it's not possible to. And you know, this is the most important point that it's not possible to experience these things in that before picture to have that before body and to have the life that you want, and that is just not true set. Yeah. Buried yet. They always start off with the girl on the left. She was said, I don't know. She was so lost. I hated myself. I was so. Yup. Always is that we the formula. Yeah. And that is, like the if you heard of the show sensational knows that sin. Insatiable insatiable, they, I watch one episode and got annoyed. A lot of people have that problem with the show. I watched the whole season but a lot of people were like saying, like, why did oh. So you're showing that like, because she got a injury couldn't eat. Solid food for a couple months now, like in she lost weight now or she's getting anything she needed, right? Then at the end of the season, it does like kind of show struggles but yeah, there was still a lot of problems with that show. But that like reminded me of what we were talking about totally. Yeah. That idea of the revenge body almost her who she revenge body just. That means but I don't. It's like it's probably easier, not to know that means on put it out gonna put it out there. The worst who. So when you. So what do you? Ideally. What would you what do you want your clients walkaway with after you work with them? Yeah. So that's a good question because that's something I'm in a new business coaching I always have a business coach at any given time but I'm in a new program right now. That's helping me really define, you know, I offer one program because I've been doing this type of coaching for a while. But now I'm trying to relate, get it condensed and really effective on, and so my program right now is the sort of sixteen weeks to jump start food freedom program, and essentially, because I mean, there's no way that I can sell healing in, like four months that just doesn't it doesn't happen. The healing does not stop after four months. You don't just go through, however many weeks of counseling or whatever coaching, and all of a sudden I'm fixed like never have to think about it again. Awesome. Because we live in this coal. Culture that is just like even if you make huge progress in that form. On's like we live in this culture, that is just constantly reminding you that you probably need to be on a diet, if you're not, and that is so like, it's, it's going to be daily thing that you've got to deal with. So I do now is the sixteen weeks is giving you the foundation. So it's providing all the tools. I've identified the things that I teach all of my clients and the sort of steps that we go through together. And we put all these tools to practice in different increments along the way and get the really like solid, foundational work like the research, and, and the things that you need to know in order to understand why this stuff works and why it matters. And why you know depot all those arguments like one losing weight for health. It's like okay, but, you know, you can actually just be healthy by folks on your health, and that's it. You don't need to lose weight to be healthy. And so we do all of that work. And then, basically, I teach people how to look at their lives and identified. What? What's working, what's not working and to be able to make changes on their own? So that when things issues inevitably come up, maybe they. Have a child one day. And so then you're dealing with, like, the body image issues that come along with that. Or maybe, you know, with aging, like naturally things are going to come up, or whatever I teach them how to have all the tools, and be able to come back to everything that they learned with me so that they can help themselves going forward, and they don't have to then get a second person if they want to, they can, you know, if you need a little support therapy, or whatever it is. But it's like you don't have to keep coming back to me, your keep coming back to other intuitive eating dietitian, every time something comes up. That is a problem like I've, I've given you the tools, and we worked together to find tune them to make sure that you really like rewire the way that you approach these kinds of things. What are some major, I have philosophies, but like on entre are just things that you want to, like, ingrain in your clients, and that you like lead or principles that you lead your practice by? Yeah. I mean, I think for starters like nothing you're never failing. You know, there's never just because you might take a step back or just because you might feel like you have fallen back into, like, really aggressive diet thoughts, 'cause there will be days where you wake up, and you're like, I'm free. I'm free. My religious amazing. I feel so good. Like none or not. You wake up the next day, and you're like, oh, my gosh. It's all back. Now, I wanna die at what happened I failed or maybe, you know, have a binge or something where you actually end up restricting or whatever it is. So I always say that there is no such thing as failing in food freedom, and that every everything that you consider to be failing as an opportunity to learn from it and to strengthen, and, you know, deepen your commitment, and deepen your roots in what you're doing, and that's really think essential to being able to get through those. Days is understanding, like I will learn something from this. But for a lot of people, including myself, you can't -essarily learn anything in the moment, you can identify the problem. But you can't learn it until you've kind of taking a step back. So you've got to just identify the problem in sitting it like, okay. Well, I'm sitting here I'm going to wait for this to pass like today's probably gonna suck. That's okay. Like, you know be gentle on yourself. And then once you start to give yourself a little distance. You can see what it is. You're trying to learn and make adjustments. They're definitely not linear. No, not at all. I Lagarde first thing that we'd go to in a moment of pain is to book and I do to get out of this. But sitting in it in acknowledging it is very is very hard. But it's helpful we're feeling. And that's actually how disordered eating. Ding and died like being obsessive dicta dieting comes to be just in the same way that we emotionally. It's like you feel pain, and then you want to get out about pain as quickly as possible. And so we do things like restrict food or start any diet or whatever it is. That's distracting ourselves from whatever the pain is. And we get stuck in a cycle of, like I don't wanna feel my feeling. So I've got to keep trying to fix my body because that'll fix my feelings. And it's like you can't escape negative feelings. Even if you try like there's no, they're always going to happen like this is life. And so you have to learn to sit in it, and to not try to solve it a media but to actually let go of control and just let it. Let it play out and to heal to release it and learn how to work through those feelings to what? I'm willing you're the process. Like did you have to go through to get certified to do what you do? Can be of a process. Yeah. Will so just become a registered dietitian. It's like I ended up being five years undergrad, and then you do twelve hundred hours which ends up being, you know, nine ish, ten months of clinical rotations, so working in hospitals in food service, and you know, hospital kitchens and community programs and things like that. So you're doing kind of the rounds that other medical professionals have to do as well. And then you sit for registration exams and that parts expensive as well. The whole thing is just really expensive. It's really hard to get into. But once you get through all of that, then you have this sort of ominous task of figuring out what you wanna do with your credentials, the kind of don't prepare you for all. But at the same time you prepare for it's very weird. It's very weird. But the day passed my exam. I remember I just cry. And I was like, what do I do? Well. This is what I've been doing for, you know, close to seven years now, what, what do where do I get like I don't understand what I'm supposed to do with my life. So. Yeah. That whole process is very interesting. In terms of doing what I do like, what I specialize in. I mean I just started reading everything. There's plenty of certification courses online, and, you know, very baseline certification courses that I've done. But my personal approach is that I didn't want to use a cookie cutter approach that other programs at us because there hasn't been a program that I've found where you can get certified to become like a, you know, a coach or whatever in that specific way of doing things that was aligned with how I wanted to help people like there was always aspects that were missing because when you're reproducing program for other people, learn like there's gonna be assets that are missing. How goes so for me. I've just read I mean my bookshelf is stacked and just read everything I could on the subject and immersed myself in it completely, and then just started working with people in, like seeing what works and what didn't work and it my. My style of coaching in my style of helping people has really formed along the way, there's just kind of, like patients. And you know, talking yourself out of that. What's it called? When you imposters into him. Can relate a lot of that. I'm good. That's really took, like a careful approach. He didn't wanna rush into anything and you wanted to make your practice around. What's authentically what you believe, in what you think will help people so that you can so that your business can be like, you know, really authentically you. Yeah. Right. Do you enemy asking how this stuff because you both mentioned sort of various different things. But how this stuff sort of shows up in your life and how you navigate it. Yeah. This is his. We had like a private conversation about this, like a couple months ago Whitney Anna. And then you close throw you know one of my best friends Carly. So, you know, but I've known Carlise like a few years, but I really haven't started talking about how it's really affected me until recently because I didn't like I was so deep into it. I didn't even realize that it was affecting me until, like a couple months ago. And I even like just had a follow up with might under chronology st-. And she was like so what are we? So do we want to talk about dieting? I have I've hypothyroidism, so I on on I read meds and stuff, and I was issues like because when we first had the first appointment like in April that you were doing mostly plant-based, but then we recommended like doing some other forms of like protein and stuff with less fillers. And then last time in like junior like doing paleo, and I was like I am realizing all of lot of that was not healthy for me. And so I'm just trying to like eat more intuitively in, but also leg still nourishing and she was like, love that love that for you. But like let's talk about drinking your calories. But yeah, basically, like like kind of similar to your what you said. Dieting at since like I became self aware because I related to what you said about like being. You know, bigger than my friends, and I don't think anyone called me pregnant, but there definitely were bullying moments and even though like looking back at pictures. I really wasn't. But I was always like, oh, I was always just like I'm just chubbier in, like my friend, I have to close friends middle school, and they would be like, oh, mile, my mom tells me to eat more, and I need to put on more away, because they were just so like naturally, thin, and I was like, well, I need to lose weight. And I think I have vivid memory me saying that, and I was in, like, probably like fifth grade or less, and then from there, and then my mom was always like away, watchers or whatever. Just so that was constantly, and she would always have like smart ones, and special k just around the house that Liga hundred calories snacks out forgot about special K had those all the time. Bars at cereal. And that was always there. And this, my family is like, hypertension, and diabetes, and just like bigger, bodies and generals runs in my family, and I was always athletic. But yes, senior year of high school. I really really went from like I wasn't really like thinking about what I ate. I had like a little bit of a break like freshman junior year, but then senior year what just happened, but I just strength went straight into disordered eating in lost so much weight. And then just college naturally, just from, like living, my life gained some back. But then realized that the siren was, like probably a problem for me out. Get tested men. Then. Yeah. Here I am now realizing all of those problems things that I did not realize problematic in just trying to heal from that. And being more mindful is really stopped dieting, like two months ago. Dieting up until then, like did this intense like cleanse thing a year ago thought I was going to reset legged really was. So recent. Shaath amazing Hugh months ago is so recent, so that's huge. I'm I'm happy for you. Men was neat. I have kind of. So I start my mom has struggled with eating disorders for the majority. I wanna say mostly since I was born like, maybe after her pregnancy. And so I've been an so her, and my mom is a gorgeous woman in her whole my whole life. She's been saying, oh, this, this, this went I lose weight. When I lose weight, just putting off for happiness in being raised by that mindset, I've slipped into moments like that I've slipped date years like that, where I, I have, I'm a big girl, I always have been, and I've been like bullied for it per se I also wouldn't say that I've been marginalized for it. But there have been days, and, like I said years in months, where I have felt uncomfortable in my own skin and wanting to change myself. And now I'm kind of just in and I have been for while in this constant back and forth where I almost feel like my body has to be like a social Justice symbol that two. Yup. By body this way. And I have to love it, and I have to represent an entire community where I lose weight and just. Yup. Sperry secretaries to extremes lately. I've actually been in a pretty healthy balance like middle. But for the most part, it's like very caught between these two extremes sweet Mike. My body is very special and different, and I want to look this way, and I deserve to take a lot of space kid going to I will. I will be happier when I lose weight flakes the way my mom thinks. And so, yeah. Eating is obviously a huge part of that. I personally haven't really done many diets, but I have had issues with, like a lot of issues of binge eating. And there was so many times where it's like this is the last time I'm going to do this. Yup. I relate to that. Absolutely. And I definitely I'm just learning about balance and learning to forgive myself and be super gentle with myself. So all of it all ties together like movement, while nece eating. Like, who I am as a creator, I think it all ties together, and that's something, I'm also working on is like, connecting the dots and so, yeah, I feel like that kind of summarizes where I'm at. But right now, I think I'm in a pretty healthy place. I'm learning I'm, I'm a late bloomer when it comes to cooking, some learning earning Nikki is amazing. I'm a bit for her. I feel I. And just trying to take little things of the people around me for myself will definitely be a healthy thing in my life. So, yeah, that's kind of where that, that is so interesting what you said about feeling like, you know, stuck between the polar opposites of on one hand you have to lose weight. And then on the other hand, you keep your body, exactly how it is in, like you have be this pinnacle of social Justice, or whatever, like, and I think that is something that I find really interesting in the body positive community, like the true body, positive community, not like, but the skills on thing like I'm body positive, but like, you know, so. It is really interesting because the, the responsibility. Right. Is falling on you regardless. Yes. And you're already have to deal with, like, so much being in a bigger body, like I would argue that what you have to deal with kind of like goes along with the bigger your body is like the more issues, you have to deliver necessity. And then if you decide like okay, I'm going to reject diet culture and get out of it, because at the end of the day, all of this is rooted in the fact that, like, we don't really have control over bodies. And if you try to lose weight, it's just coming back and like. Our bodies are just uncontrollable. They're wild. And but it's interesting because I always see this, and I always feel so bad, and I'm just like the sucks that you either the responsibility is on you to either like quote unquote, change your body, or their sponsors on you to be this, like social Justice warrior. And what if you don't wanna be like the Representative for all like curvy girls out there? You know what if you don't wanna be that person, you shouldn't have to be in the same thing with race and gender? Like when celebrities come out with certain things about themselves like they'll take a stance and be like, you know, I am taking this stance because I this way or because of my race or because of whatever then they become this sort of talking head for the entire movement. And it's like well you're already dealing with marginalization to begin with. Yeah. Your celebrity. But like you're already dealing with marginalization to begin with probably online, bullying all this stuff. But like now you have to also be the spokesperson for like an entire movement like that is so much. Much responsibility. So, yeah, that's not a few for you. Like that's get it. And I'm like, and then there's also moments where I'm in a place of south love. And I'm like, is this coming from a place of my body? Also being fetish is Asian right now. The girls are so in and like, but only like a certain kind of the girl. So sometimes unlike do I really love myself like I finish ising myself, who is it a bad thing to fetish is yourself, writing because of you, right true? Your own fetish, I. That's a great question, though. It's. And with the about the pressure to be like a social Justice icon. That is an interesting conversation in the true in the body, positive community, because the ideal like you love she's all fat. And they had that whole episode. I think there was a little upset about, like fat, IMP imposters. But like, oh, what happens if leg they lose weight LEGO? Yeah, like Roxanne get an her getting the weight loss surgery that obtained. Yeah. So they are that come out as, as a as an icon is as a social Justice statement, or just or like oh, traitor, fat trader. That's right. That's what the son was like argue a traitor for losing. Because there's also conversations in the in the community about this right now, at your thoughts about, like, it's okay to want to change your body, if it's like for the right reasons like what do you think about those conversations? Like people are like, either. Are they? I'm not anti weight loss. Like some people are saying it's tough. I one of the things that I always tell people when they're kind of, like, you know, some of the anti Dieter intuitive eating or health, every size like messages online consumer, it'll extreme. And so one of the things I always tell people is like, you know, my job as a practitioner is like number one. Do no harm. So if there is a if I'm working on with the client, and they have certain fitness goals, but they're not able to achieve those fitness polls without sinking back into disordered mindsets. That I'm gonna strongly recommend that they not do that, until they really have their foundation under them. If I'm working with a client, and they have certain fitness goals, but exercise was never really a part of this whole thing. And it's not about, you know, weight loss or shrinking all the stuff is just about, like getting stronger, and then things happen as a byproduct, and they don't obsessively glorified or anything, then we kind of learn to walk that line in coaching of, like how, what is that identified that line like when is it unhealthy for you? When is it obsessive when is on realistic and getting in the way of your life? And when is it just wanting to, you know, maybe get stronger in some, you know, there's there is a line for every individual. But these are the kind of things that I don't like to talk about on Instagram necessarily, because it's so hard to communicate that nuance way, that people are going to understand if they have no foundation. Like if someone is coming to my page for the first time and see me trying to like articulate this weird nuance in it like I don't wanna do harm. And also don't wanna make anyone feel like they have to do any of these things because at the end of the day, it's like body at time, you can do whatever you want with your body, and it's not for me to decide what you do with your body. I'm just trying to show you that, like, maybe what you've been doing is not only obsessive but it's, it's getting in the way of your life, and that there is another option. You don't I think the big problem here is that people are told by doctors like you have to lose weight order to achieve XYZ and your health. And that's where this whole, be skinny to be healthy message. Originates and I'm just kind of like that's not the only option. You know. Like actually couldn't do a lot worse for your health, because you're restricting and you're, you know, it's just like all these things, I'm not gonna get into all these things can happen. When you're trying to lose weight. So it's like what if you if you really care about health, you know, focus on health part of it, but also ask yourself this is really about health because now that sounds like there's so many lazy enough to like be in a good mindset in leg, yet, talking about it on, like a public platform, lick social media that you're trying to use to build your business at Ardy is can be like, so heated. It can be like polarizing to like make state than like that. If yet people come in see that for the first time. Yeah, it's just tricky. But that that's a good take on it. Yeah. Yeah. That's all it's very nuanced. So. It really like case by case basis, which is the whole thing with intuitive rights, just like whatever works for your body. But yeah. Staffan people out on a pick fights with me because I, I call out there, you know, disordered eating rituals, and they freak out about it and, and, and also I'm kind of unpacking things that are I'm talking about things that you have believed since your kid, especially like the three of us, we all have moms who were raised in die culture as well. And so they didn't you know they were trying to do their best. But like it's not their fault. Yeah. But those messages, and so, you know, I see that more often than not. So when you learn it from your mom, too, it's like, well, but this stuff like, I, but I know that this is the right way. That's like, okay, but, you know, it just makes people very angry sometimes so I always like okay that they're being called out. But that is there. Just like being defensive confronting parts like jar parts of your life in mind is not as can. It's it can react like an angry emotion just because it's like healing. His messy. Yeah. Yeah. On if someone isn't ready for that, and they see my page, it can be very triggering. 'cause they're like, no, my diet isn't as order, like my intermittent. Fasting isn't you know order like, well you. Talk about later. So the whole other thing I have, I think covered a lot. This was great. This was a great conversation. Yeah. Love this will thank you for coming on. Make you earlier time. Of course, I. Worse. Yeah. You mentioned your tours, but there's anything else, any of few other things if you want to plug anything in the, of course, things will be in the show notes.

Tap along scripts time with me all sorts of things like that tapping Q and A dot com slash support. I am a huge fan of taking a break in the middle of the day and resetting on days like today, where I'm recording this, I'm seated at my co working space in my co working space, in Brooklyn here in Williamsburg is just two and a half blocks from the East River and I grew up in Wyoming, I grew up from water. So for me water is still magic and boats are still magic and lots of days at lunch, I will take my lunch and I'll go down, sit on the bench, and I'll just watch the boats float by and just enjoy my lunch in listen to a podcast or something like that just to, to take a little break. But the last thing I do before I return back here to the office to continue my work to do my client calls to do whatever is, is take a few moments to do a little tapping to reset in the middle of the day. And I think this is something that we don't do enough, like it makes sense at the beginning of the day, I'm going to meditate. I'm going to tap. Going to set my intentions, at the end of the day, it is super valuable to take some time to do any of those things as well to unwind to disconnect so that we're able to sleep better. So we're better the next day, but the middle of the day is just the middle of day. And we live in a busier and busier time and often times were eating lunch at our desk or were grabbing a bite deed as we drive from one meeting to the next or we're not really being present to ourselves in the middle of the day. So that's what this is, this is a chance to reset a chance to give yourself the ability to move forward in a way that is simple and direct gin if you have not done so ready, if you download the tapping QNA app, which is absolutely free. It's not add sponsor. There's nothing in there. It's free. You can get it for both apple and Android devices.

So if you want to in the middle of the day, you can just click on over to that, and just tap along to the script really quickly without even having to hit play. So let's just do a little tapping to present to let's do a little tapping to put ourselves in the mindset in the middle of the day to reset to this happen. The side of the anti speak. Depressed for me. They have a nice big deep breath for me. And just have from point to point repeating after me. This is my chance to reset. This is my chance to re ground myself. In the middle of the day, it is so easy to be rushed. In the middle of day, it is so easy to be overwhelmed. I give myself a few moments to just rebound myself. I give myself permission to be refocused on where I am. I give myself permission to take pause without feeling panicked or overwhelmed. I acknowledge in appreciate everything that I've done so far today. Even if I didn't get everything done that I wanted to do. Even if everything didn't go as planned. Everything that happened this morning is done. And I appreciate the fact that it is done. There were some things that didn't get done this morning. I give myself permission to be easy with myself. They were even things that I have voided this morning. I give myself permission to be easy with myself. There are lots of things I wish would have gone better this morning. But the morning is over. I can't change what happened. But I get a chance to start again. I get a chance to refocus. I get a chance to resettle myself. I get a chance to be in this moment. My intention is to be grounded this afternoon. My intention is to stay in flow this afternoon. My intention is to do one task at a time. Being as present as I can to the task. And doing the best job that I can. Knowing that I'm not going to be perfect this afternoon. Knowing that, I might not get everything done this afternoon. Knowing that, there are even unexpected things coming this afternoon. I give myself permission to be in the moment. And if I do that my afternoon, we'll be successful. If I do that my afternoon will be everything it needs to be. Even if that is imperfect. I give myself permission to be me to be present this afternoon. Nice big deep breath. I think you'll be shocked and amazed if over the course of the next week every single day at lunchtime. He just take four or five minutes. Tap on that.

It is now multimillion dollar peration as always lots of fun stuff in the mix. Lots of stuff that you have probably never thought of before. I'm pretty sure at least one or two of the stories this week are things that you never imagined. Somebody could go out and actually very successful with a lot of money with in some cases, even with their job and go all in with whether that's you're not in all cases, expanding their auctions, bringing more security bringing something into their life that they can be proud of that is ultimately, what it's all about something that you can enjoy, and look forward to be proud of even as it makes meaningful and positive difference in your life. And of course, for a lot of people who are in debt are otherwise need to make extra money. Well, that feels really good to okay. I have no prob. Saying that is a primary benefit of a side hustle, making extra money now over here. I just finished three long days in Canada, three to four depending on how you count. It's lots of media, lots of great events and experiences with listeners and readers. I'm now relocating back to Portland, Oregon for the next ten days to prepare and hosts and facilitate the ninth annual world. Domination summit really excited about everyone coming to town. We got people coming from all over the world per usual. There's also a lot to be done because I've been gone past few weeks. I've been doing book tour and focus on other stuff. So for anyone out there, who's listening who's involved are just kind of wondering about how it works. I really do. Want to say a big thank you to the WS action team. They have been going strong, having lots of meetings making lots of progress, while I've been doing all this other stuff. So I really couldn't do it without them. And of course, our eighty plus volunteer ambassadors. Who are joining us this week as well. So that's a little bit about what I'm up to wanna talk today in this recap. I want to answer a question. Really specifically. What's the easiest idea, too? Try right now. Questions becoming a couple of different ways on book tour, if I wanna start a side hustle tomorrow. What do I do? Well, guess what? I have a clear, indirect answer for that, first, though, just a quick reminder about how choose stories for the show. Some people have been asking about this on tourists. Well, simple answer is that we need your referrals recommendations, probably about let's say twenty to thirty percent of the stories are coming from our listeners who have started side hustles off in the time since they've been listening to the program. Probably another twenty thirty percent are referrals, a people that, you know, who are doing a side hustle, like the kind that we feature on the program. Maybe it's a friend of yours. Maybe it's just something that you have spotted, or spied somewhere. We would like to know about. So it was pretty simple. If you'd like to nominate yourself, just go to school dot com slash about. He scroll down. There's a link to the survey form and on that survey form, you can give us a bunch of information. The more information, the better, it makes it more likely that will be able to choose your story. So that's for yourself. And if you've got a recommendation of somebody else. You could just write to my colleague, Whitney, who manages all of our editorial process Whitney at side-hustle school dot com. W H, IT, y and let her know who we should talk. We wanna feature as many broad Representative different kinds of stories as possible in our continued quest to bring you the best possible information. The best possible actionable information I should say. All right. So that's that. Now, let's talk about this question. What is the easiest side hustle to start right away? All right. So first of all, a more important question might be what are your goals? Like, what are you doing this for why do you want to have a new source of income, and your answer to that question might determine a next step that is different than the answer to what the easiest idea to start right now? It's just a little bit of preface or disclaimer. But as I said, the clear and direct answer that, I promise you easiest thing to do right now is to resell something so to buy, and resell something or even cells in the home, and I'll talk about both of those options here. So there are all kinds of plot. Forms in which you can sell something, you know, could be EBay could be Oetzi Craigslist, gum, Trie posh, Mark, Amazon. And of course many more if you're in a different part of the country or the world, there might be some other network that I didn't mention if you're selling something that is specialized like something to do with knitting per se that could be revelry, like lots of different topics, and skills interests, and hobbies and such have their own network, lots of different platforms. You just need to choose one wind out if it's something very general than shoes EBay, or if you wanna sell it locally, choose Craigslist, or whatever the equivalent is in your city. And when we talk about easy. I really do mean easy. Okay. I'm not talking about setting up a proper business with all that entails talking about trying to criticize the stable income on talking about a two step process. Okay. Step number one is to sell something you already own which, again is really simple. Like look around your house your apartment, your dorm room wherever you live, pick up something. You haven't used in a while. If you have close, you haven't worn in a year, that's always a good option like your closet periodically. And if you've got something of it worn in a year, do you really need it? If you have old Electric's or computer equipments also that you haven't used a few months, even perhaps might be time for that. Go books kitchen items really anything that has value. Don't make it too complicated. Take a photo of that thing. Right. If you sentences about it, and it listed on one of those platforms, they are usually really intuitive to figure out how to do it. Even if you have never made a profile before on that platform or site, the process to register make your profile list, your item all that should take you less than an hour maximum. And then within a few days. As or a week, or so you're gonna see result come from that action. And if you haven't done this before it can be really fun. I can kind of light you up and get you into something else. So thinking of something else, you know, step two is basically by something else, and resell it, ultimately, this is going to be more sustainable because you can't just keep selling your own stuff, unless you wanna end up like one of those minimalists, who has a coffee table that they use a bed because they don't want to own anything, so assuming that's not you where do you find what to sell this all important step to couple options for that as well? Probably a lot of options. Actually. I'll just give you a couple of them. First of all, you can look locally. So you can look at flea markets yard sales anywhere that something is for sale, essentially, you can go out on a Saturday or Sunday or go to wherever used items are for sale. You can also go much broader and look on the same platforms that you're going to sell on and study the auction listings that close or just notice what is posted notice. What gets a lot of bids notice, what is selling for relatively high price in some cases, you'll be able to buy and resell on the same platform a lot. People out there, actually even making a living, or at least making a good, second income buying and selling on EBay, and I have a little tip for you. By the way, if you're gonna do that get a second profile. So it's not super obvious that you're using the same account to buy a bunch of stuff and then resell it for higher price. Nothing wrong with that, of course, is perfectly legal and ethical, you just might wanna have some separation between the account, that's doing, most selling versus the account doing the buying, if you know what you want to specialize, it look for wholesale items, or bulk, lots of stuff you can take it up. Another level and go to Alibaba or all the express. Just look at those websites linked him up in the show notes, and there, you can find wholesale items direct from factories and just to be clear. If you're buying something, there, you wanna make sure you're going to be fairly certain. There's a market for what you're buying. Otherwise, you could end up with one hundred camera cases or baby blankets or whatever it is. You stumble upon. But it certainly can be an option if you into reselling and you like the whole process of it. So those are a couple of quick steps to really get into something right away. There are certainly other approaches and. I said your decisions should be driven by your overall goals. But if you are looking for the quickest, and easiest, and most accessible thing to try really, anyone can do this, try reselling, if nothing else I can tell you from experience. It's an important skill to learn. You can probably end up applying in other ways, once you move on from it. Okay. I've got a really good audio update for you from previously featured side hustler. He's got some really interesting observations, and a big change that he made which is allowed him to be much more successful. I'll let him tell you about it in his words. But I, I want to say thank you to our sponsor, appreciate them helping us keep the lights on. So here's a message on their behalf. And then you'll hear from Andrew sottile school is brought to you by policy genius easy way to shop for insurance online. Now, once you apply the policy genius team will handle all the paperwork and red tape. No sales pressure, no hidden fees, just financial protection and peace of mind. If you're looking for life insurance or not just life insurance, but you also got home insurance auto insurance. Disability insurance, probably some other insurances focusing on life insurance for this campaign, they've got all kinds of stuff, and if you need that, but you've been busy doing literally anything else, which, I understand, you know, who wants to deal with this the hope when they make it easy. Checkout policy genius. It's easy to compare all the top insurers and find the best. For you policy genius dot com. Nobody wants to shop for life insurance. That's why they made it easy. This is Andrew bliss originally from Cincinnati now, stationed abroad, in China and Taiwan. My side hustle is the adventure smell box, and it was featured on Assode to seventy six over the past couple of months. We've launched a new website and completely redesigned our packages our website. It seems rather horrible for some reason, I thought having pretty artwork and volumes of text was much more important than actually making sales are new site has reduced our wordage by over half, and we have simplified our ordering procedure now customer can come to our site within five minutes got all about and complete a purchase. If I can offer any advice that people starting their own side hustle. It's to keep the possibility open that you have something completely wrong. Ask for feedback and really listen to and make sure you ask people who will be honest and direct with you the phrase that changed the direction of my business Andrew. It's pretty, but it's about the worst commercial side of ever seen. I mean, do you even want to make money? I'm truly honestly forever grateful to that person. In addition to this change something really great came from my side hustle. Our educational packages now. Proudly contain a top secret instruction manual teaching kids how to write the computer code to create some really awesome projects are new partner, code speak labs. Reached out to me after hearing, the episode thinking, we could create a more dynamic overall package together. This is a lot more confidently approach schools and home schoolers as we really do take off about all the educational buzzword boxes now. So after a difficult couple of years, they've interest box has wind, and it sails again now has a smarter captain sailing. Well, you heard it from Andrew, a pretty sight that doesn't convert. Well is a trap for your business, very wise decision in reducing the copy on his site by half and optimizing checkout process. I mean, here's the thing, you should do by the way, if you sell any kind of product go through your own shopping, process, try to do it as independently and objectively as possible, and ask yourself how easy is it or how difficult is it? Let's say if it is at all difficult, if you are at all annoyed or frustrated by the process, or think it's got to be a simpler way to do this, just imagine what your potential customer things. All right. So it's really, really pays to be just brutally honest with yourself or get somebody else to do it. Get somebody else to go through the process and kind of observe how they feel and, and how intuitive is it and what to be improved upon it cetera also when it comes to conversion here's just a practical tip. Google optimize can help you make all of these decisions if you're trying to figure out how much text should I have? And is this, the right photo? Or is this other one right photo? Google optimize, we'll basically do this kind of split testing for you. So there's a tool for that linked it up in the show. Notes. But however, you do it maintain clarity as one of your most important values when it comes to designing your website. So thank you, Andrew for that on us update. And I'm so glad as well. That's great stuff. Has come from your episode everybody, you can follow along with Andrew, check out what he's doing at the adventurous, mailbox dot com back going, take a look at his updated, newly reconfigured website. Coming up on the program. Lots of episodes, so many episodes. In fact, we might even have one episode day. You never know. I mean, daily podcast, you know, seven days a week. So guessing the odds are actually pretty good. But I'm excited to tell you tomorrow about the eco-friendly candles, that produce a smoldering profit that profit is on fire depositing, something like fifteen thousand dollars a month in the Bank account of the couple who makes these candles tell you all about that. Also got another cool story software engineer cells, sixty four thousand copies of an of green Gables e books, if you ever read and of green Gables, or if you like any of the classics, many of those works are in the public domain, meaning that anyone can create a version of them off them for sale. So number of people have done this in different ways with Amazon, and I will tell you one big success guy who's done particularly well with it. And of course, much more on the way here we are at the end of the week. It's just want to say a big, thank you to folks who work on this show as well as to you, the listener, this is a community. It's a global community of people who are all interested in doing something for themselves. Sometimes by making the world, a better place the same time, which I think is good. I don't think these are mutually exclusive goals. So if you're out there listening are the reason we make this show if you make the commitment to make this part of your routine I to commit to supporting you fully in your quest to create that new source of income, perhaps, you've got an idea. You've been thinking about you haven't turned it into reality. Let's make it a reality. Come on. Let's do it was to scatter. And of course, it's not just me a whole bunch of other folks working on the program, including producer, Chuck Reed. Content miniature Whitney correct community is on jed Chang.

So Chrissy, Chrissy Mets is one of your friends, and you guys work together. She is the coolest, I chose this terribly hard thing for her beat boxing. I thought she'd be terrible. At turns out, she was amazing. Spoiler in this episode. She is unbelievable. And I am terrible, and that is my Justice or it's for picking such a hard thing for her to do let's get to that in a second before we get to that toe for one quick housekeeping note. So we have about six or seven weeks before we launch into season two and during that time we're not going to go dark. In fact, we have don't you tell us what we have. Well, every time that I have a friend in here of mine, we wind up spending forty fifty minutes Gavin about whatever. And then we just pick kind of choice ten minutes section to play before the adventure. So in the next six weeks, we're gonna play these extended conversations which you'll feel like you are in the room with. Us, and it's a lot of fun. And I really, really think you're gonna like a lot of these love catching up with these people. And, you know, you hear a little bit of it at the beginning of each episode, but I think we'll have kind of two guests per episode. We'll be able to hear kind of everything we talked about. And then in six weeks. We're season, two amazing gas amazing adventures. And I don't wanna give anything away, but the adventures are getting bigger and crazier. And I'm worse at them. All right. Let's get to Chrissy Mets. I remember a story you told me when you started out, are you down to tell us doing laughter? It was. Yeah. So one of my first gigs when I when I moved to LA was, I booked, a small co star role on entre. I think it was the second season. Right. When it was hitting righto harse. It was an entourage world. Yeah. Everyone wanted to be either on it -ffiliated with it whatever. And to do a co star and then to know that James Cameron was who I was going to be remembered. Yeah. I literally that was the peak of that show, by the way was Auckland thing. James cameras, actually, on it and he'll you in. So I was, you know, it's like you're, you're coming into someone's home and you're like I can't really make myself comfortable, but I have to be comfortable enough, and it was just so stressful. And I remember I could not get my line out to save my life. And, and the guy who plays turtle Jerry Jerry just sharing. He was like, what's the hold up? And I was like, oh, no. To you. Yeah. And I was like, oh, that's a rough. I think generally speaking, but directed to me and I was like he was generally saying the whole. The whole she say her line. And you, you try not to internalize it all because then it like you get really in your head, and then you keep effing up, and then it's like I'm never gonna work in the town again. And this first job, there's not an actor who hasn't had this, where you go. I don't think people realize who aren't acting. There's like two hundred people in the crew in the lights and everything set. And then this is the worst. They say like to get up that little Slade thing. They say on a bell, and everyone gets quiet. Everyone looks at you. Yeah. Especially if it's one of your first times, and what I dish it with not the same thing. They gave me the day of. And so, of course, I will never forget the line. But I kept plugging it and James was, like, I gotta hear what it is. Mr Cameron was the sinking of the ship and attempt to foreshadow the forthcoming singing of the tech market in two thousand. Okay. That's tough verse while it's got a little Sally seashells thing going on. It's a tongue. Twister. I mean, no offense the. Whoever wrote that. But like I have to talk like that a lot of stuff to think about, and then just James Cameron, and he was like I couldn't get it a couple of times, and then I had to take my key off of somebody else moving. And then the extra behind me was, I'm sorry. Background artists behind me was like, you know, you really should hit it sooner. And I was like, oh, who? Who? It was so much. It was. There was so much. What was it about you should you should say you should really hit your Mark sooner this is because you were so nice as you are that you've been talking to this guy, and he felt comfortable now getting direction knows. And it was like, maybe it's my choice to approach once he's there like fine aid in like my choice, the Akron artists, and not gonna choice, anyhow, and then I flubbed line a couple of times, and then, of course, drama played by oh, gosh. Oh, gosh. I'm blanking on his name very, very kind gentleman, Kevin Dillon. He was like queasy don't even worry about to get my baby size. Just take a look at the sides. And I was like, thanks do that. Maybe yes. Maybe signs are little shrunk down. I don't know why I know this like, not normal size of a script or like they're like just a little easier. Hold. Maybe sides. Besides and I was like, oh, thank you, like, so sweet and kind and then James Cameron leans in and he's like has her something I'm doing, and I'm like, okay. Oh my heavens. And then, of course, we're on the turnaround, which there, you know, that means they're moving the cameras. And so I had a minute to kind of catch my breath. I went in the bathroom. I called my manager, my then manager and I was going. I'm speaking. She's a Chrissy you pick yourself up by your big girl panties. And you go out there and you do your fucking job. And I'm like. Okay. Okay. I'm crying in the bathroom. What's cool, little like, in sort of silver lake area that theater on the corner? Yeah. Okay. So anyway, we're there. And so I'm like this old bathroom, and I'm just crying like an idiot, and I'm like, I don't know if I can do this. I really thought I'm not capable like my, my skin is not thick enough. What am I doing? I can't even say at one singular line here, the end of the story, but direct cut to whatever amount of money you're making that. So I go back on set. I say the line I figure it out. Whatever I'm driving home. We wrap them driving home. And I'm like, yes, don't enough. I can do this still don't know. I mean to be doing before I was a talent agent. No, no. I didn't know that. Okay. So I became an agent when I first moved to LA my manager, then was like, okay, your agent needs an assistant. I'm like, okay. Oh, you want me to do? I'm like I wouldn't even know where to start about three weeks from my manager saying. I was a preschool teacher for right out of high school. And as I don't know how to work in Los Angeles in an office kidding. We'll did work for you again. It was great, but it was like watching your boyfriend take another woman every day. You're like you know what I love you, but have a crate time. All right. We'll speaking of. Trying new things so excited about this. I have no idea. Right. Not as scared as we are. So you have no idea, right? Nothing. I the feeling because you have a musical background right? I love music. Yes. Okay. So, and I'm worried about you on this one. Yeah, I do not have whatever is an anti musical background. Okay. So we are about to embark on a beat boxing adventure with beat box extraordinaire, musical mammal Gabriel. Aguayo. We'd have you, you looked maybe not scared like you are good at beat boxing, or something I can do some, but I'm not a great boxer. We, let's hear what you can do before this guy comes in here.

We tell us about you and how you, first of all, I should explain to the listener you seem like a really nice super. Swag. The man bun. Yeah. Not LA per se. But, you know, just outskirts. Okay. I e e area, you know, wrench Kamanga. Yeah. In the. Fire? But yeah, I mean I. Have you always been like interested in excited about music? Yeah. I've always enjoyed and loved music. Actually, when I was younger, I was wanted to be an artist drawn paint. And I still do that. I still definitely, you know paint, but just not as often as I used to, and I do some art shows here and there, but music was just one of those things that I wanted to learn how to play an instrument when I was younger and it just kind of didn't happen. You know, not work. Well, that too one instrument that you have on your twenty four seven exactly free to right. Exactly. So, yeah. So I essentially utilize the instrument that I was born with and kind of developed a way to use that to be my instrument really. So was there a particular artist or time in music that influenced you to start boxing? There were kind of a lot of them. Most people know about Bobby mcferrin, it was like he's he was like a beat box before there were really beat boxers, and his son is actually an amazing boxers. Well, Taylor mcferrin. Yeah. But he, you know, the way he utilize his, his voice, and in such a creative way was, you know, really kind of his braces to me, but also, you know, the early era of beat boxers like Dougie fresh, and then the fat boys. So. Yeah. It really is. Terrible terrible. Yeah. So so, you know, that was a bit before my time growing up, but I was fascinated by hip hop music. And then, you know, in the Napster era of free downloads and stuff. I started really delving into a lot more of their work and exploring it, and especially Dougie fresh, you know, I don't know if you guys are familiar with Dougie fresh. No, we're older than you. You're saying. Your time is my time. But yeah, so tell you a great artist story, not interrupting them, we're gonna get not trying to put off beat boxing. Sure should be is I have a cousin. We go to thanksgiving every year, and I have a cousin, who I have a lot of cousins, they're all they were all older than me. We were like a different offshoot of the family, so we. They were all everyone. There was older than adult, and I was like thirteen I was like, I'm going to try to make conversation this year like every year. I'm like, you know, offline video games like try to mix with the adults. So I started asking what they did and on the east coast, and I was like, well, I'm in banking, and it was, like, okay pass. Like, if I went to one of my cousins, who's a great guy, you know, he's really lovely guy. And he said, I'm in music, and I was like, okay. Yeah, like I listen to music, and he said, I what who do you work with? And he said, I work with list off some artists, he said, Rockefeller Rockefeller. Oh, yeah. That's right. World is Carmen sandiego. Yes, this is a group. So then that, that birthday July twelfth we I had my first boy girl party. Oh, no. The garage dance or no? It was like, you know, like my mom and dad were there. We were young enough but it was like the girl I liked was there. I couldn't I was the birthday. Boy, we're gonna go see dick Tracy or whatever. Yeah, you're gonna go see godfather part one. And like we give out all the presences girl gave me some sweatshirt. I was like, oh, my God is gonna be cool. Mom, my mom there's one more present. And I went. No. What could it be? And she unfurled this giant poster with all the members of Rockefeller with the cartoons of Carmen, sandiego. And the bad guy who listens. You know, whatever the other characters are Carmen San Diego's world. So they're posing with these kind of cartoons. And I say, this is the nicest thing my cousin ever could have done. He got them all to sign it and said to from Darien Connecticut to Chris, our biggest fan in dairy, and Rockefeller in the all signed it. And this girl like the light went out on her is like she was like, 'cause we were, you know, listening to bell, biv. Oh bullshit like that. Yeah. Yeah. And, and I was I was just enough like aware of the situation that instead of being like. You know, mom would get us out of here. I was like, oh my God. Thank you. Even though is killing me. Big shout out to my cousin and deroga- Bela, who are both awesome. But it was very embarrassing already. That's why I never learned to be. Trauma. Yeah. All right. I hope I don't bring up any, you know, already you have just coming in the room. He's traumatize. So to give us a little break us off a piece of what you can do here. Yeah. All right. Let's see jacket, thanks. Yeah. Oh, you ready? Ready? Ready? Yeah. Komo. Pretty by. No. Old old old. Of old old old old. Yeah. Okay. So I'm going to be about fifteen minutes. I got you, I got you. About ten minutes. But I do all that do unbelievable. Thank folks. So sorry for your anything that was are you out of breath. Not really. Which we can talk about support. Yeah. It's all about creating something that kind of allows you to breathe. Rhythmic rhythmically. Now. There are a couple beats and rhythms that can kind of get you out of breath, depending on what's trying to do but in general, you want something that kind of varies the outward sounds in the inward sounds so that, you know you can. Is so annoying when you're at a party, you're hanging out with friends or like dude, just go. Yeah. Do you do it all the time like do practice like in the car? Do you practice every are? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'm very conscious of like who's around me. So for the most part. Berg I've ever heard. But yeah, so there is legitimate practice, you know that you can kinda be working on specific routines. A working out particular sounds like drills like like do that. Like. Hi, hat and all this and the yet so. Sounds like you really does. No sort of and some be boxers are very particular about that. I have a buddy who he's working on a sound, and he'll do the same sound like ten thousand times that day. And if you're hanging out with them, you just like. You know, a thousand sounds in your in just the sound pretty much everything that he does goes back to that sound right. And so actually that sounds very annoying. Exactly. Right. So, so I tend to try to mix my practice into what I'm already doing because it's also not fun to just go like. Right. Thousand times and one day. Right. So I'll throw in a sound into what I'm doing. I can't even do that sound. All right. Okay. So what how do I start dude? I'm okay, so I mean, a lot of people like the boots and Kant's, right. Which is the way lot of people started with. I never heard of that. But that's okay. Yeah. So let me get this, right? Boots and cats and boots and exactly. Got it next. So commercial, right. Let me just get this. This is the easiest one to do is boots. And am I doing? Okay. So show me. Yeah. So boots and cats is sort of a way to get somebody beat boxing. Right. So it's essentially, you say boots cats boots Kant's, right? But then you start to whisper it and start to take out the vows and just more enunciate, the continents. Right. So it's like. Cats. Got it. Now when I teach beat boxing, I normally don't start with that because I feel like it, it teaches almost like bad form. Right. And it gets people trapped in. He's like anyone that not like that? It's the way I, I like to do is you like deconstruct the English language we all speak the language. Well, right. And so all of the sounds for boxing that we need are already right here in our speech. Right. Okay. So essentially, we can go through the alphabet like ABC, but instead of saying the actual letter that's do the sound of the letter. Right. So to be, so you guys can repeat after me. Okay. She liked. Yeah. So it'd be. Doing it to my amazing. This might be. No. Yeah. So we go throughout the letter. I mean throughout the. Her. Right. So we can essentially just like we've already trained ourselves to use those to formulate words. We can rearrange, those to create rhythms and beats right? So we can still use the boots and cats lay out. Right. But instead, we think about it as like a B, t k t. What's second is B T k to be Katie. Yeah. Bor or I actually like I prefer peace. And so, like, p t k t. I'm having I'm slightly, just likely. So that's also hurting me. But chart? Yeah. I get it totally doing. Right. And so even the other sounds all of the other like. Right. Are like s h sounds Z sounds and v sounds. And, and you start to adjust the size of your mouth for specific. What is the? Oh. Yeah. Okay. Like so like for a cellphone buzzer. Someone that got it. But even let's use the sound like you could say with a smile. And then you can say it with your mouth almost kind of closed. Until we go. That's what I noticed. Your mouth was was moving it size. It was changing its size a lot when you're doing that stuff. You were pretty still. But it was like, yeah. You know it's funny, what you're saying is, it's kind of, like learning to talk and then learning to talk fast. Yeah. What's. An indifferent Annan rhythm rhythm anyway, because it doesn't always have to be fast. They're nice slow beats and rhythms. Good. Yeah. You can do some shopping screwed stuff. Most definitely. Know what you're talking about. I was married to a man who was a rapper in the UK. I know what? Why did we have you on the show? Adventure that you've never been on what he you know, he didn't box. But he's like a professional already. Also, I grew up in south where like so and chopped in screwed is from the south. So when you take a song top it. Yeah, just screw no, no. Exactly. All righty. All right. So what I got so far is. Was a PT Katie. Yeah. P to tell we can slow down. I was doing to the thing ringing. Yeah. Or even so you like the phones ring in there. Yeah. So, so a shaker to like Morocco or any other shaker, we can do that s h sound right and go. Or like a. Hula. Hula-hoop. Yeah. There you go. We really need video. Yeah. Don't seem. Saying we should sorry. I meant we anyone could see us. Yeah. You could see me hula-hoop now and more. Sorry, guys. I'm so sorry to cut this short. We want you to hear the rest of the episode. We also really want you to come. Hang out with us in the minor adventures feeds so sim- tell them how they can do that. So they can hear the end of the it's super easy.

And today, you're going to hear from Caroline, John? Caroline, John are also in an age gap marriage careless twenty five and John's fifty one. Or bringing you their story because they're facing John's mortality. In twenty fourteen. John was diagnosed with stage four cancer on the batch stretches of a year that they said that I had left the get gave me twelve months to live about seven or eight months ago. So whether or not I'll be here in the next few months who knows I might be. I'm Joe Piazza. This is committed. Caroline John met at a networking event. In San Antonio. John was working as a new home sales agent and Carroll wasn't executive assistant at a big corporation. She was also going to college for business administration at the same time. John was in his late forties. Carol was in very early twenties. They immediately clicked they talked about everything, but work, art music at are. They found they had so many things in common was pretty random individuals. We're concerned. My thoughts are always crazy all over the board at anybody that can keep up with my thought process that's pretty good in my mind Zion carols able to do that. She's able to end -ticipant me were other people have never been able to kind of anticipation my random chaotic thinking. Opposite. He's very extroverted on introverted. He had so much energy. He still has so much energy never met somebody who could be happy, you know, very just full of life. Every second nothing that you could ever say to him could get mad could get him to frown could get to say anything that is just a person. Their relationship moved fast. John had been married before he already had a son. He wasn't actually looking for something. But then he met Carol and all that change. Carol came from a really strict upbringing, and she told John that her mother wasn't going to be happy about their relationship. Kind of forced me to speak things along on the permanent side. The thought about what you know. I might need to seal the deal here asked this girl to get married. She got a fed that long to if you would we pretty mentor. Dating for six months are now on MIR. We were single one day married. The next all within a six month period was pretty fast. Carol, did you ever think you're gonna marry someone so much older than you say, waking, you know for corporations when I'm seventeen I was hanging out with executives. So very much told at that time, and I was also going to school full time the people that were my age. I just couldn't find a lot in common with like that the almighty, you not that they still wanna have fun other still figuring on sells out. So I knew that it was had to be somebody who was part of the world that I was in somebody who is a little bit more goals than was more serious about life and China subtle down stuff. We see my wife is being older soul. So I didn't see her as being twenty one twenty two ish, and I never saw myself being in my late forties. Either always lived life much younger versus. One night. John made a reservation this fancy restaurant called silo. He got there. First any told the mater dean some of the servers that he was going to propose. One bit to be special. So I worked with them and they ranged flowers. They range a different menu from being set up for the regular evening special spot in the restaurants are really really beautiful place. Just a just gorgeous restaurant. I think that that kinda gave it away was prior to us eating. Ow. He was very insistent that we had to go to the NASA law to get our now's dialing very odd. Because we've never done something that kinda gave it away because I was like why are you so concerned about me getting my nails done? So I was just kind of waiting the whole tiles like he's gonna propose just waiting for him to go fun to watch him break out in turn red and just kind of like stutter all over the place is very very nervous perspiring, and I don't really spy get up a couple of times ago the bathroom to to kind of dry myself off. That's how nervous and then one of the time that I came back I stopped by our table. And I got down on my knee. And I kinda position carols chair kinda out facing just the floor of that's kind of where I was because I was down one near only and then all these people in the restaurant. All stood up. And they started watching 'cause they knew what was going on and the waiter that we always had he had brought me my rain. They had it in the kitchen. And and of course, I asked her to marry me right there in there. And then a whole bunch of people decided they were going to pay for meal may working to pay for it. The people who are offering our man when you the cost of reunion. They were like, we know you're gonna be eating rom for the next month. Yeah. The here we'll help you out. They got a place together right away. It was completely day. No furniture, Nadia mattress until one night. They were just sitting there in their empty apartment. And we're just sitting there were like, we'll do wanna get married list is let's get married. We wanna be with each other forever list. Start out your that's pretty much happened. We went downtown. We her mother. No. And her mother Mets downtown. I had a buddy of mine there in we've found a judge was able to preside over a marriage and. Win. Did you guys write your own vows? Yes, we did write our own vows. But that was a complete failure. We wrote vows. But I don't think that either of red what we'd wrote. I know I did. I just improvised it it was happening so fast. And I just started Jim Jabir later on once walked out of there. He said, you know, just now that we're gonna have wedding later on it's going to be about you'll and will be able to read our vows. So we did that with all of our families, and it was basically more for families because we understood that we kind of took away that moment for them to see getting married are actual wedding was very quick one minute. We were singled the next we walked out of the court area. And we were married their age difference is definitely noticeable and people comment on it. A lot did come up every time we were out because there is a stigma out there in society and we encounter. Her it every single day. Yeah. We'll go to a restaurant and we'll sit down and somebody behind my husband people walking by would be. I'm looking at my husband, those they really loud. I wonder if his wife knows where he's at my husband will have to stand up and be like, yeah. This is my wife if you wanna meet her like she's variety here. I'm not a shy individually team that you know, I must be a mistress or, you know, the situation all wrong doing it get the amount of times that were out needing or whatever to eating, and, you know, one of our servers will ask what my daughter's having to eat tonight. And I'm like, well, you know, what I really don't know because I don't how daughter, but if you referring to my wife, we get that a lot. But here's the thing. Neither of them. Really cares that much. They were so happy madly in love and excited to do all the things that newly married couples do go on a honeymoon decorate their house start having a family. And then. Just four months after they got married. John started feeling sick. Which is really weird for me. Because I never said. It was Carol who convinced him to go to the doctor. I wouldn't paid for my visit. And he ran a checkup on me, and I got home after my visit with him does that midnight. It called us about midnight and told me that I needed to go to the hospital. Stage four gastrointestinal cancer. It's a it's a very Grasset cancer. I don't know how to explain it. It's it's not paint grrrrrreat cancer. But it's just as bad in the numbers for surviving at are just as bad. So that's what I'm dealing with. We didn't get to enjoy very many free months of love bliss and happiness. I think it was probably three to four months tops that we were living married that I was given the news. We're going to take a quick break here. Be right back. Hey, committed listeners there is a podcast that I have to tell you about it's called the shadows from CBC podcasts and award winning audio artist. Caitlyn pressed of the heart the shadows is a fiction series, and must be snow that I also write fiction. So I love fiction podcasts. It's about the anatomy of a relationship. It's so expertly sound designed and it captures the real joys and rudely messy and painful parts of the parts. We don't always talk about. But we need to like most of kittens work. It includes very real love seat. And that's because some of them are actually real you can subscribe to the shadows. Where ever you get your podcasts. And I hope you do after you, listen, send me a note because I want to hear what you think I just hope that you love it as much as I do. John and Carol had only been married for four months before he found out. He had stage four gastro intestinal cancer. In the blink of an eye everything they had planned for their new lives together. Completely changed. A lot of responsibility to take care of somebody or somebody who has a critical illness because disdain just for your whole dynamic, and it's hard to keep the marriage fresh into not are you into still love each other as Jewish in brings the worst of people into the change. If the cancer put was the uncertainty of life ahead. After we were married. Everything was fantastic. Every day was brand new. You don't look at your time of day split up between. Well, you know, when time do I take this medication? I take eight or nine medications daily. Now, I take them all in different times. So I'm constantly going through a schedule. Bill taking enough to do that I gotten area need to wonder where where I was going to go with my wife today. Not what he'll do. I have to take today or I can't go to the death right today. Or do I have to get my wife to pull me out tub because I can't get out of the tub today never had those problems Meyer relationship, unfortunately, as moved from loving wife, too, depending on my wife indust ugliest part of this whole thing is that cancer kinda stole the love that I had for my white. She went from being my love to being caretaker and. Death. The biggest change for me. I think that there is. Anger towards everything his cash is not physical thing. So there's all this anger. We're like why did this happen to us? And there's no putted. So sometimes will be on Facebook on social media. Our friends will come over the show as the brand new baby. And we just kind of feel like resentment, you know, people's lives are moving on me. And my husband are not able to have a child. We know it's not fair. But it's natural accepted. It's natural people as some complain about things that were like that's not even a big issue like euro. Okay. Your spouse is healthy condition. You you guys are gonna be, hey, Dr a call from her sister the other day, she's newly married and she was complaining about such a nothing grop. Will it was a nothing problem between her and her husband? And I thought goodness gracious. If only we could have those kind of problems and not the problems that we face. I don't know the couples could have made it through. This point like Caroline. I can anybody ever wondered about our relationship. They're they're not wondering anymore. The illness looming over them changes every single interaction that they have with each other. Sometimes I'll say something to my husband is mad among frustrating. Give you something like he never pick up your socks or something very serious or something very down. But I say my husband will do the same with me. But I don't take me about five minutes to realize said, and I apologize. We have an he doesn't seem to because he realizes I don't want this to be the last thing that we sat to each other. You know, we don't we don't fight with each other very much when we do we we get things straight really quick because we do know what the future holds in a dozen that right? Not his fault. He had cancer. I never said it that think a bottled up. So I would snap over small things because he would be asking me. Can you get me a Cup of milk and just kind of like, okay? Like, you're just feel like you're taking taking taking I think it took me sitting down with him. Just kind of. Like vomiting, my feelings to him for him to understand. I think that would help. I don't think that he had to do anything different. I just needed him to to say that he understood. And what was that conversation? Like were. You finally told him what you needed. I had come home from work. We're having a good day. So I I think that's one it wrought up conversation. He physically was having. You know, what we call good day? He was able to e- to not throw up his food to know, watch TV. And it was a good day. We were talking about how difficult it was. When I was like, you know, I feel so overwhelmed because my work was very stressful and add to come home. I've basically half of our time job of being the caretaker on maintaining the home stuff. Like that at that. When he heard what I was telling him. He was very very accepting. He was very understanding. He understood. So I think his approach to that right away was will what can I do to make this easier on you? So that's one we split up things. I was like you feel overwhelmed because I have to be the bills not something that overwhelms me. So he's like, okay, I'll Pam through. Film. So he also took responsibility. He started taking more staff. Make sure that the apartment was only the he communicated with me he also started getting his family members to get involved. He started getting his dad to take him to doctor's appointments, and that kind of took away the caregiver position away from me. Obviously has Mel communicate with me. But it was dad role to do that. It allowed us to have a very a relationship of gas. Now, we're hanging out, and we're watching TV in we were eating payments. Order Chinese kind of making date out of it change that onomic allot create our relationship. Time for a quick break. When we get back. We'll talk about how Caroline John plan for the future. People say change is hard. I know I had all the time. But is it possible? The change can actually feel good. How do you switch directions without winding-up? Totally lost co host, Lisa Oz. Jill hers dig in all of this and their new podcast u-turns. That's why you turns tune in to get perspective on your personal crazy get comfortable with being uncomfortable. And maybe even enjoy this wild ride a little bit. U-turns his available on apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. By all accounts. John has already beaten the odds for this form of cancer. When he was I I ag- knows the doctors didn't think he would recover from the numerous emergency surgeries that he had to have. He was essentially cut open from his chest to below his belly button his scars nine inches long. But he made it through that. John and Carol recently moved out of San Antonio to a sweet small house in term little town. Jon spends his days on the patio in the backyard or gardening when he has the energy Carol still works fulltime to pay their medical bills, which are a lot. What do you guys plan for what can you plan for? I have this weird pet peeve about what she should do. If she wakes up on dead next to that kind of joke that kind of logistical information. What do you want to do? Well, you know, first and foremost, I've told her not freak out just to call the coroner's office. Or the police department have picked up in my family deal with it because I've worked it out. So that Carol doesn't have to deal with all that my sisters are going to deal with all of that hero just needs to deal with her grief at that time. She's not going to have to do to mechanical. It's weird be has them when we have family gatherings all his family on to spend time with my husband, and they sit around in our conversations are not about like football or politics or something funny that happened in on TV. It is sometimes we were talking about the arrangements and would church. Do we want to do it in? You know, they're all talking. They'll pay will let me see if I can ask my pastor. Do you want it to be a military burial in these? We we spend hours in this kind of like our reality. Those are conversations that we have family gatherings. Now thanksgiving table at Christmas. John have you talked to Carol about what you want for her life after you pass away told her that I'm perfectly okay with her obviously moving on in having another family. She should be the have cleared the road for there's no there's no road blocks. I'm not I'm not the type of person that said you better not ever get married after me. But we've had that conversation. Carol. What do you want for your life? Do you think about that? Or do not wanna think about that. I'm going to see I want to think about it. But it's here because my friends always asked me could you see yourself getting married again. And I'm like, no, I think I would really scared because it's like this merit hasn't been, you know, traditional right now on a little bit better. I'm still not strong. But I do have days where I go two or three days in a row where if you saw me, you might not think there was anything wrong with me. Now might payback for that is it'll take me a week of recovering to enjoy those two or three days. And that's where I'm at right now done just in bed. All I do is eat. There's nothing that my wife can really do for me except just keeps me hydrated and fed in. That's what that looks like it's not a pretty sight. But it's better right now than at most other times. Because I can at least have you know, two or three days where semi normal John. Could you see yourself going through all this without Carol? I don't see how I could have made it this far without her even think I would have wanted to supervise me level of incentive to try and get up and do she carries a little emergency kit in her car for me. Just in case for our. She's got a pillow. He's got a blanket. She's got a bag. That's got food. It's got dreams. Doesn't matter. What happens out there? If I get sick all we have to do is stop. And she's got a little house that she can set up in the new state for us to stop and take a coupla hours away from home. That's kind of how our life. It's sheets prepared that way. I don't think I could have made it is for without her. You guys have basically told the cancer. Hey, leave us alone. We're going to love each other. No matter what in the best way that we know how for as long as we have. What have you guys done, but try to recapture your marriage? We can't control caps are for my birthday. We wind able to go out and do anything sometimes for never street. They had to be at. But what we do is. We try to do something special that we wouldn't do we were just home. If I was any other day. So we set up a cannibal dinner. We cook we eat something. So we try to make sure that we still celebrating stuff like for Halloween. Oh, my husband loves Halloween. But sometimes he doesn't feel like at enough energy to be able to go out to a party and stuff like that. So sometimes what we're doing? Now, we're hosting people on our house were allowing people to come in. So that we could still spend time with a bowl we can still grown. Our friendships can still spend time with family in that allowed candidates take that away from us. Carol is the old soul in their relationship. But they're both old fashioned in one way bay liked to ride each other these love letters back when we were first dating. She was my entire university was my world than I I let her know that through Bannon, vapor. We're going to close out this episode with Caroline John reading you their favorites. Good morning. My love you Lau to be the very best version of myself beautiful thing between us is what happens in between until I see today continue to sleep sweet, darling. I want you to now how happy making nothing makes me smile more than not. If you also feel very safe when I'm with you. I don't think anyone else knows what you do. I feel another lifetime. Carol.

Naomi Klein and How the Shock Doctrine Applies to America Right Now

"He listeners. It's been a rough couple of weeks I hope everyone is staying safe out there I'm bringing you today in interview that I actually did a few months ago. With Naomi Klein, the author of shock doctrine, I had some technical difficulties, but the files and then time got we for me so coming a little bit later than I expected it to, but it actually completely fits with the time that we're in right now. We're seeing the shock doctrine. Play out in the government and the fossil fuel industries response to both the coronavirus pandemic and the protests and Ao me. We'll talk a little bit about what exactly that means, and how it reminds her of what happened in the aftermath of Katrina. We also got into how all of that plays into her thoughts on the green new deal in general on the climate movement, and what needs to be done to move it forward. Hope you enjoy our conversation. That's coming up in just a minute after a message from this APP assode 's sponsor. I'm Amy Westervelt and this is drilled. Hiney Omi thanks so much for being here. I really appreciate it. I'm really excited to talk to you. So I wanted to start with maybe getting a little bit of your kind of origin story when it comes to climate. How did you find your way to the climate crisis? So I'm not somebody who has been writing about the climate crisis, my entire career. I began certainly for for the first more than decade focusing on economic injustices, human rights abuses when I wrote my first book, No logo which came out in twenty years ago. I was tracking the rise of the globalization of labor and this kind of newish way of producing the products that fill our lives, which used to be focused in a factory. You're where the whole production process would take place often that factory would be relatively close to where the products were consumed. We started to see this a rage four outsourcing in the nineteen nineties where our products were being made. Made now through a web of global contractors and subcontractors, and so while I was focused on the effects on on workers and driving down of labor standards I was certainly aware that it was also an incredibly high carbon way to produce our goods live our lives, but it wasn't my focus, and the turning point for me was really when I was in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I wasn't there. Out of a concern for for climate change to be perfectly frank with you I was there because I was working on on the shock doctrine, which is a book about a phenomenon that I called disaster capitalism. In the aftermath of these shocking events like wars, economic crises and increasingly natural disasters, there is a kind of corporate feeding frenzy, and that was certainly the case in New Orleans after Katrina so I went there because Haliburton was there in and Blackwater was there and Bechtol was there and the charter school movement was there and all of these private real estate developers were there, and it was just like this insane feeding frenzy before the water had even drained from the streets. There was this talk of how they were going to turn. New Orleans into this laboratory for a privatized. Frankly, racially cleansed city, and so that's what I was focusing on, but when I was there I definitely had this feeling that I was looking at. Our, collective future, if we stay on the road, where on that it that we would be facing a future with more of these kinds of climate shocks, intersecting with a week and neglected public sphere overlaid with systems of white supremacy, and then disaster capitalists, swooping in with plans to make it all more unequal, and that was the moment where I was like okay. I can't keep deferring this issue and telling myself that you know. The environmentalists are handling it. This is an economic rights issue. It's a racial justice issue. It's a IT'S A. A human rights crisis and we all need to be involved. They feel like that leads into a lot of the discussion around the green new deal I'm curious to hear your take on how the green deal has been discussed in the media so far and I'm really curious to hear what you think about specific policies that can be brought forth in the deal framework. Sure I mean first of all I think it's important to understand that that pretty much anything can be brought forward in a green new dell framework because it isn't. It isn't simply a climate policy. It's a framework for the next economy that we're going to have right. It's an umbrella that pretty much. Every issue has to fit within, and so you know it starts with the science and the fateful. IBC report that came out in in two thousand nineteen, the one point five report that said we need to cut global emissions in half in twelve years now eleven, and that in order to do so require. Transformation of pretty much every aspect of society I mean that's their words right so if we need to transform housing, building, construction, transportation, energy, agriculture, and on and on and on. Why wouldn't we at the same time as we transform it to get it? Two zero emissions transform it to make it a hell of a lot fairer on every front. Because the climate crisis isn't the only crisis that we face, we face multiple overlapping and. And intersecting crazy, so that's the way I see the green new deal and I think we should think about it as as expansively as possible and not be afraid of that, because if you're talking about new ways to live, you shouldn't be afraid to be making connections. Most of my critique serve of the green new deal and I have my own to do things that are left out as opposed to the way, it's so often. Discussed in the in the you know you asked about media coverage. You know I'd say that. It's been really really bad. In the sense that we have right wing media, you know we have this sort of Fox and the echo chamber around it just lying about it, but lying about it a lot like talking about it all the time, right And and completely misrepresenting it. Shamelessly right and just scaring their viewers and listeners and readers depending on the media outlet about how it is all going to be about loss, right? It is all about people taking things away from you and making your life crappy and the reason why they do that is because this has been a very successful way to defeat climate policies in the past, and they know that actually over the past couple of decades many of Of the ways that states and national governments did try to tackle the climate crisis within a very sort of market, neoliberal framework did actually increase the burden on working people. You had renewable energy plans. That didn't make sure that low income can. Consumers didn't face increases in in their electric bills in France. You. Had you know Emmanuel? McCall introducing a fuel tax at the same time as he's handing out tax breaks for for millionaires. Millionaires and corporations at the same time as he's attacking trade unions at the same time as he's imposing austerity policies, all of which is making life for workers harder and then, and then he says Oh, and the way to the way to solve climate change is just for you ought to pay more for gas, and so this message you know that that Fox's pounding away on. You know in responding to climate change is going. Going to make your lives harder has been a really successful strategy all around the world in order to beat back neoliberal climate policies. They don't talk about all the jobs. That's GonNa that are going to be created. They don't talk about the protections for union jobs, and and the guarantees that workers will maintain their salary levels. They just talk about all the things you're GONNA lose and the problem is that if you turn on? CNN or MSNBC. You aren't getting corrective to that. You mainly aren't hearing about the green new deal. And the main way that it's been covered in like sort of serious liberal print media has been to sort of soberly claim in our bed after bed that it's not pragmatic. It's not realistic because you know it. Attach is all of these things that are unrelated like healthcare and childcare jobs guaranteed without making any effort to figure out how they might be connected. Connected right and so yeah, it's been a big fail because you've got the you've got the lies which we shouldn't be surprised by which we will continue to see and you don't have real similarly kind of high profile attempts to debunk lies. I know it's so interesting to hear so called liberal media talking about how you can't solve all the social problems. And also just not understanding the fact that climate really does intersect with all these other justice issues, and being very explicit about it right like you. We can't afford to deal with just now. It hasn't just been the New York. Times. Michael Man wrote that in nature I. It's interesting that there's being so explicit about like. You're weighing us down by making. Making this about justice. We don't have time and I mean there's a couple of things about it like I mean first of all. If that's true, give us an example of a narrow carbon based approach to the climate crisis that has worked at the speed and scale that we need right because what we're actually seeing is when you introduce these market based. based. Approach is like a carbon tax or cap and trade. They often spark a popular backlash, and you lose the policies, and that's what happened in France. Netcom was forced to repeal his inadequate gas tax in the face of this huge popular backlash, and I'm Canadian. I'm living in the states now, but in Ontario we had a liberal government that introduced carbon policies that were widely perceived to have increased the price of energy in their big debates about whether that's true, and why that isn't. If it's really about the the renewables, push, or whether it's about various Bloomberg goals that they got themselves in meshed in, but but the point is is that it was perceived to be just increasing cost of living. And now we have a right wing populist government. WHO's very first act in office was to repeal it right. So you have a lot of people posing as very very serious people who know how to get things done, but if you look at the track record, it doesn't get the job done. Whereas linking climate policies with actually much more popular policies like Medicare for all and job creation, you know protecting labor rights that hasn't been tried you know, and it's certainly worth a try, because it might actually work I. Know I don't understand. Understand? Why people think that the same approach that we've been trying for thirty years and approach that hasn't worked is GONNA. Be The thing that solves this problem you know it also kind of feels like the folks who are making these arguments needs to spend a little bit more time on the ground in disaster zones, because as a journalist like I, come to this from just being in the place, it has right and. There's just no way to say with a straight face. Like what is healthcare have to do with climate? You know in it unless you have never been in a disaster zone, you know every and I. You know I. Admit you know I I run to the fire. That's what I do is a journalist and you know whether it's New Orleans whether after Katrina. Whether it's New York after Sandy, a whether it is Puerto Rico after Maria in all these cases. What you see is a total breakdown of the healthcare sector, right? What Killed People Post Maria and it wasn't falling debris. It was a and this is what all the research shows right. It was the people who couldn't plug in their oxygen machines and their dialysis machines. And that you know that the intersecting. Collapse of the `electricity system and the healthcare system right that had both been systematically underfunded partially privatized, and just left in such a state of decay that when the winds blew, the whole thing collapsed, and then, of course you have all these interests are that. Don't WanNa get them back up and running you viet. The the only hospital and back is still closed two years after Maria. I'm so people are still dying because of it, and this is why I just i. just find it maddening that that we that we would not see the connections we. We had an event just at rutgers where I teach called care workers climate work. I wanted to ask you about that because I saw the announcement for it, and I was really excited to see it, because I've written for a long time about both gender and climate, which a lot of times people don't understand how those things intersect on a really basic way, but then I would often have editors kind of ask you know what is care work after do with climate staff and it was really toying so happy to see this event so annoying because these. Nurses homecare workers. Teachers have become first responders in the midst of disasters. Right know whether it's driving their students on school buses through wildfires in Alberta or California, or whether it's homecare workers who have died in fires with their patients, who they refused to abandon I mean there's so many examples of this, but it's also low-carbon work it doesn't. It doesn't take a low carbon to just take care of each other. These are sectors. Sectors where we can expand and this is. This is a really important response to the Fox News talking point of it's all going to be pain. It's all going to be suffering right like let's identify the parts of our economy that we can have a Sunday. It's in right, and where we can make sure that these jobs which have been systematically devalued because it's women's work, because it's work overwhelmingly done by immigrant women. How do we make them? Good Jobs, right? and so that was just it really fruitful discussion among teachers and nurses and homecare workers and disability rights, advocates and it was. Abundantly clear that of course they are. They're already on the front lines of the climate crisis. You know what we got schools that. In in this country that are having to send kids home because they're so hot and they're failing. Infrastructure can't cope with the heat. There's no air circulation their AC either doesn't work or doesn't exist and in some of the schools in communities of color. There's lead in the water, so you've got students who are choosing between dehydration and getting poisoned from drinking from the Water Fountain Right. And this of course schools should be at the center. Of the green new deal and at the end of the panel, I just ask you know the everybody I said you know it seems so clear that this is connected. Why do you think you haven't been included in so many of the discussions around the green deal and several of the speakers said this was the first time anyone asked them to reflect on it or to to share ideas, and they all have ideas about how to green their various sectors. Wow and emily comber of the speakers she She's kind of a legend because she led the West Virginia teacher, strike. You know in red state West Virginia coal country right connected the dots between the fact that the oil and gas. You don't they don't pay their taxes to the fact that their schools were falling apart and said pay your taxes, you know emily said you were left out because it's women's work. Yeah, and you know. They also pointed out that the original new deal excluded domestic workers because it was overwhelmingly black women doing that work and we just can't do this again exactly. Yes, I'm curious just as someone WHO's watched corporations. Kinda behave worse and worse over the years. What you think needs to be done with the fossil fuel industry in order to implement some of the ideas around the green new deal. Yeah, I mean obviously you know and your listeners that we have a really big problem with the fact that their business model is incompatible with. Any definition of an organized civilisation because they will lead US straight to four to six degrees of warming. And they're quite open about that that they that they see a future of business as usual for themselves, and even increased demands. They are laughing non-binding targets set at the United Nations. They think they can get around it and the reason. They think they can get around. It is because of all the money they have. This is a very very profitable business model that requires constant expansion of the fossil fuel frontier in order to not go into crisis. They have you know what's called the reserve replacement ratio that to worry about which is telling their investors that they have more in reserve than they have in production, or at least as much and given that what we know. Is that if we are to have any hope of keeping warming below one point five degrees Celsius, we need a managed decline of existing production. We just have a fundamental incompatibility. What these? What, these businesses need to not go into crisis, and what we as a species need to not spiral into into crisis. It's not resolvable. And that's why the strategy of to create a crisis. A market crisis for these companies you know has has been a very important, and that's the fossil fuel divestment movement has been about, but it's not like to me. The fossil fuel divestment movement has never been about an idea that we were gonNA. Actually have bankrupt them just by getting people to pull their funds and I've. I've said this to students over the years when I go to campuses and meet a wonderful group of divestment, you know great fossil fuel divestment group who's been added for you know four years, and their university won't just won't listen to them and is completely intransigent, and and there's many cases like Harvard and I mean there's lots of cases where it's been really tough, right? And what I always say to them is you? Yeah, we want your university to divest like it is good when that happens, and it's great that the UC system just just just announced finally seven years that they're going to today, yes. That's a huge win, but you know what I say to them is every time you go out there and make the argument that this is a rogue business that you're basically turning them into a kind of a pariah. The way the way tobacco companies were you are helping to create the political space that we need to tax them increase their royalties, and if they really resist us. US nationalize them. Because making that argument for why there is, there is a fundamental incompatibility between our health, and there's the more you create that political space and I think it's because so many young people have been out making that argument that they've also been able to pivot to the demand that politicians not take their money, right and many many of the people who are doing that. That now through the sunrise movement started in the fossil fuel divestment movement. There's a there's a lot of folks who's who as university activists of Varsha is one of them at. Will Lawrence's another of them you know these are some of the CO founders of sunrise. They started in the fossil fuel divestment movement, and now their focusing on getting politicians not to take their money and that's. That's that's really significant. Because if we can get politicians to divest, it's going to be a lot more likely that they are willing to propose policies that we actually need instead of fake solutions that are that are doing things like presenting natural gas bridge fuel, the other side of it is like fossil fuel companies, and all of their excess cash from their from their illegitimate business model. They've always had the carrot and the stick right like the carrot is, we will fund your campaign and help you directly. If you give us the policies that we want right and the stick is. If you don't, we will take out all of these attack ads and destroy and your opponent right, and so the getting Democrats to divest and demo getting DEMOC- democratic politicians to divest deals with the carrot right, but it doesn't deal with the stick because they can still even if you get politicians. Politicians not to take their money, and they start being willing to entertain real climate policies like a green new deal and bans on fracking and so on. They're still going to be afraid that these companies can spend unlimited funds buying TV ads attacking them, and that's where amy your work spin so important right because we need to really really really talk about media divesting. Because you know in the same way that we don't turn on CNN and see ads for Marlboros, why should we turn on CNN and see ads for Exxon and if we can, if we can cut off these two streams because we have in fact, turned this into a pariah industry, you know the streams going directly to politicians and the streams that allow them to buy the attack ads I actually think we buy ourselves some significant policy oxygen rate. Thank you, we've. We've been working on that ally. This idea of pushing media to take some responsibility here we might be enabling especially outlets that go the extra step, and actually make oil companies ads for them the thing. I think people need to remember is that these companies are not advertising product. It's not the same as other types of advertising. They're advertising ideas you know and this I started driving me. Not Surround the keystone fight where we would have a hell of a time. GETTING ON MSNBC YOU know for two minutes to explain why we were opposed to the pipeline, and when you would manage to do it at you know, and it would just be silly gets. We got so little airtime to make the case against keystone, but then it would just. Be followed by a much longer you know Exxon ahead. What mostly their advertising? The opposite of their product right like their advertising like wind turbines and solar power point solar panels that are point three percent of their businesses. Yes, exactly yeah, yeah, I mean if and if you look at this, what's happening at the state level where when you know whenever there's a resolution or some kind of referendum on local climate policy, the amount of money that is that is being spent it to t to defeat these measures and the met. The plans are getting better like Washington. State's latest attempt at carbon pricing was know that should have one and the. Didn't win was because of this gusher. and. We may not be able to keep these companies from being rich, but we I think we can keep them from having access to the airwaves. And destroying democracy in this way you know, and then maybe we can firefight. Okay, the last thing I wanna get your take on is just how the climate movement has evolved in recent years from your perspective, and where you think it needs to go next. Yeah, I mean. There's no doubt that there's some good indicators. Seven million people worldwide, participating in in the global climate strikes over a period of eight days, and I think what's really significant about that is not just that it's like the largest climate mobilization that we've ever seen, but how quickly it came together. You know you had the. The People's climate march in two thousand fourteen, which was amazing, and it was four hundred thousand people, but that was like a year in the making you know, and it was a lot. It was many many millions of dollars from different groups, and you know busloads of people. And it was, it was just huge effort right, and and and these strikes were huge efforts to, but really only got moving in August right, and like in Montreal there were six hundred thousand people, which is two hundred, thousand more than at the at the People's climate. March and I think that what that speaks to is. You're just tapping into his guys like everybody in the city wants to come. You know so as opposed to like we need to like. Move our troops. You know I'm we're seeing in the polling as you know right that it's that the sense of urgency is way different than what it was even two years ago. When people you know, even Democrats who said they cared about climate change would result at the bottom of their list of priorities, and now you know it's up there with healthcare and jobs. I still think it's completely ridiculous. Ask people to rank their issues like that and that we should think he would think. That yeah. We have to figure out how we can you know merge these issues because we shouldn't have to to rank and shoes, but still you know that unfortunately is what it takes to get the attention of politicians, because when you say you care about an issue, but the nineteenth twentieth on a list, then what that tells your elected representatives is well can I can throw this one under the bus and not pay a political price, and that's what they did, and that's what they've consistently done. So I think that is why we have these much bolder plans on the table, an incredible mobilization from groups like sunrise building on. The intellectual and grassroots group grassroots work of of of a a network of environmental justice organizations who have been putting these ideas out there and and putting them into practice in their communities and the climate, Justice Alliance deserves a huge amount of credit in my book. I talk about how many of these ideas really come from the global south from places like Ecuador and Bolivia Nigeria where you've had really really dirty drilling for an and massive environmental disasters, and you have a moot movements. Movements many of them led by digits people who have been talking about the notion of ecological debt of climate debt, and how you know and I quote, and how it can Avar Oh and his speech. She made exactly ten years ago at the U.. N. Yeah calling for a Marshall Plan for planet, Earth and mobilising funds on a scale, never seen before to help countries like hers leapfrog to clean energy. Leave their forest intact, so you know when I think about where we are. Amy Like I haven for mixed emotions. I feel like an Halacha had been listened to ten years ago. Maybe maybe Brazil's forests wouldn't be on fire right now, and maybe they'd have more of a chance of protecting their glaciers. You know on which you know. Millions of people depend for freshwater. We have lost so much and we're not going to get it back and we are on such a tight deadline, so we need to just move. We need like a kind of a scale of change that. Is a term I I heard from Leeann Simpson. WHO's an amazing artist? Now? Bay writer thinker, in Canada, and she talks about punctuated transformation right that things need to shift very quickly, and it needs to be a paradigm shift and. So when I think about how we get there, it's I. Think we can't think about this something that is about the climate movement I think the climate movement is part of this, but I think it has to be about really engaging people who are outside of any definition of what the climate movement is now, but who have shown that they are able to organize large numbers of people immobilized large numbers of people you know. Know the migrant rights movement it should be central to this debate, and the reason they are not is not because people doing that organizing. Don't understand that they're also on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Of course they know right. It's because they are in a nonstop state of emergency, dealing with family, separation and human rights atrocities on the border, and so we have I think we really need to focus on. How do we? Just really rethink this, and this is why we had that event on camera work right and thinking about. How do we tap into this wave of teacher mobilizations? You know like I said when we had. This panel of folks were saying. This is the first time anyone's asked us about the green deal you know. It's all crazy and. And so it just it can't just be the climate movement. We have to look who's WHO's kicking ass out their teachers. Are you know nurses are migrant rights? Organizers are and and on and on and on the poor people's campaign is, and it's like. How do we turn all of these streams into like a rushing river that is going in the same direction, and is really about transforming the economy because I don't think we have time to think about. How do we just build out the climate movement? I think it's about how. How do we get all of these streams together and I think we have to be honest about the fact that part of the reason that this hasn't happened is because a lot of the ways that folks get funding key encourages us to stay in our sort of issue silo, and in our little narrow lane, and we don't have a lot of infrastructure like movement infrastructure that creates spaces for people to kind of get to face to face, and and do that sort of hard work of getting on the same page and. And dealing with you know difficult history and past mistakes. We spend a lot of time online, less and less of it face to face, so this is I think the work and you know I don't feel sanguine about it. I feel like Gosh. We have a hell of a lot to do not a lot of time. What I feel you pull about is that I feel like the appetite for transformational change is greater than at any point in my lifetime. I think there's a widespread understanding that you know we shouldn't be afraid. Afraid of deep change because this sort of safe centrism is what has produced the kind of radicalism of trump so espe especially with younger folks. You know I I really see a difference like when I speak to people it to audiences like the younger folks in the audience are like really up for it. They're not afraid of the connections. They want an intersectional movement. They love making the connections the more the better and it's sort of you know my generation and older who are just like really. Are you making this harder? Right, you would think that building a broader movement is generally something movements want. And, if that's not the case like what is going on kind of ideologically, and what's the subtext of that? Like? What are you afraid of? Who are you afraid of? And you know a lot of it like I think some of it is like kind of the legacy of McCarthyism. Adding A in this country has been through various wars on the left right, and that's part of what put people into their sort of issue silos right where it's like you know we don't want. We don't want to change society. We just want to change this one thing right like we want this one group to have better access or whatever it is, and there's sort of a fear when you start talking about systems and like a shift in actually the operating system that's governing society, and there's a history to that. Fear that I think maybe needs to be made visible and legible before. We actually will be willing to build the kind of movement that we need. That's great. Thank you so much for taking the time. I really appreciate it and it was great it was. Great talking to you so much doing this for all your work. Okay that's it for this time. THANKS FOR LISTENING I!

And so, let's get to why you're actually here, and that's about gaming, and so actually gonna just you've heard me enough. So I'm gonna turn right over to Josh, Josh what the heck have you been playing and good to have you back? Glad to be back Bruce. So I've been unfortunately unable to play his many gains as I would typically like to be playing for the fast you weeks. That's life that happens. But the really, really fun thing. I got to do a couple of nights ago, and something that I'm hoping to get two more times in the upcoming weeks is, I got to do a cube draft for magic the gathering something I have not done in a very, very long age for listeners who may not be into card games, or or magic the gathering magic, the of course, is a game from, I think, came out, in nineteen ninety Moses of the coast. Been around for a very long time. One of the oldest living card games still played in published and produced fantastic game one of the best game designs, I think of any anyone ever five Richard Garfield and acute draft is essentially a box of cards that a person curates with several hundred cards involved, depending on the number of players, they anticipate drafting from and will set out decks of just randomized decks of sixteen cards given to each player to draft out selecting one card and passing the rest until all of them have been drafted. And then do that three times and what you end up with is around forty two car. Sorry did math wrong. However many cards sixteen times three. You end up with a sack of cards, you, then narrow those down to a forty card ist deck and play with your friends really, really enjoyable fun lighthearted way to, to play magic the gathering, especially in an era where I no longer play. I sold all of my cards, actually a couple years ago actually traded them in and bought a bunch of board games with my trade in money just because I, I can't keep up. It's too expensive. A hobby for me to keep up on a regular basis. And I am not competitive in a tournament style play which sometimes it kind of feels like that's what you have to be doing in magic. So accused draft really fun light hearted way to just kind of see who among your friends can real quick, build the best deck. Without a whole lot of meta gaming. Or super strategizing just hear the cars, you have deal with it, and do the best you can out of it. Really had a blast Bruce e you mentioned it's been a long time since you've done this. So when was the last time, you cube drafted all cube drafting has been honest, -ly? I think it's been five years since I lost to cube graft, not the last time I saw or like helped with the draft actually helped key draft at. A year ago, BG spring, just going to help them, get set up because it was just they were teaching a lot of people magic, the gathering, I right there with you dress of. There's a lot going on in the way. Magic the gathering if you haven't ever played. This is a phenomenal game. It's very well done but to really be in it. They're putting out different box sets pretty regularly, and you have to stay within the x number of sets of the most recent releases in order to actually go and compete on their Friday night. Magic things or you're doing more like a draft style. And so you do have to know what's going on with the cards, but cube drafts. I always found as a really great way to use all these cards that officially, they're like your can't use these tournaments. But you can use them in this setting like just go have fun with your friends. And like to me, I'm just going to call it. I don't have time to do a tournament when keeping up with the list. I just don't. I just don't I guess I could. But that's not where I'm dedicating my. Energies. Right. I, I wanna just come together. And I wanted to just play with friends, and so cute drafts would be the perfect way to do that. What's fascinating is about a month ago. My family came down to Texas from New York and brought all my old magic guards. So I'm talking like, original like beta, and then also like ice age cards like these really old cards. But also is cool thing is black deck box, and it's the magic the gathering world championship deck for one of the finalists because back in the day used to take those decks and then, like, let's hey, this person competed with this. Let's make it a thing. But just to add another layer to this, Josh, I don't know if you're aware this, and I did not tell you this coming, but magic the gathering according to science, apparently, this is from by the emerging technologies from the it's a it's a website and they say magic the gathering officially the world's most complex game. Because to this day, you choose you make a deck of sixty cards from a pool of over twenty thousand cards that have been made. I actually interestingly enough. This was a topic of conversation at in my board game group of few weeks ago. Something that was brought up and yeah I can one hundred percent understand where that comes from because not only are they releasing. I think it's two three blocks year this point and just the number of new cards and every time they release new cars. They are adding new rules and new. The way in which me and my old, roommate from college used to explain magic to people is you have really realistically three or four basic rules to magic and then every card you play is a new rule. And you just follow whatever is on the field. You know it is really, really. I love magic. I really do and a cube drafted reminded me of why I love magic, and that is. I kind of fell out of love with magic because of how competitive it has gotten over the past few years. And this reminds me of whenever I was a kid just with twenty bucks. Running down to the store and grabbing your couple booster packs and throwing together, what I could. What I like to lovingly refer to as kitchen table. Magic it's nothing fancy is nothing flashy. It's just good fun between a couple friends. So really glad that, that I had a buddy, who kept and held on all those cards. Bruce super jealous that your family held onto all of yours. They said they would kill me if I sold them just because of like, no, it reminds us of your child did like, but you gave it to me. But I'm like, okay, I'm glad I'm glad to have it. Yeah, I well to be fair. I went back and looked for all of mine about four or five years ago, only to find out that they were sold in garage sale. No high school. So I take in a break in high school and unbeknownst to me. They, they were sold off a so that sucks man, and so sorry miss credited, the article talking about is actually from MIT technology review. And something tells me they know combinatorial. Crunch out that Madame antics. And yeah. So magic other great game. It's just not like the whole competitive or collectible card game. Not really my Cup of tea, I'd rather just get a board game and like come together because I heard a quote the other day this was four the like a new online, TV series about board gaming. And so they had, it was the designer of grim forest had on Rodney Smith to just talk about it. Because of course, Rodney is the first host that they're bring on and Rodney broke this point of, when you're playing board games. It's really cool because it's not just the game in front of you. It's also like the game between the players not the game. But like the community that happens. Right. And so that's why I love this hobby, is what he said, is how many times in this world, and I've said this, quote now a couple of times this week because it's out to me so much. How many times in this world can you come together with different people say you're going to commit to learning something, a but then also? Commit to playing by the same rules. And I think that's really cool. And I liked the fact of aboard game kind of being static in that. And not having to keep having to learn everything. So cube draft more my way to go with this, too. But for the sake of time and to respect exactly what they've brought up. Let's move onto the next one. So do you wanna do one? Or do you want me to do on caveat, it Bruce? Okay. So circle back in this gonna be quick one. And then I can go into deeper later. So I've already talked about this. Josh, I know your feelings on this listeners if you listen to the episode couple episodes ago, you know his feelings on this but the game food chain magnate. So I bring it up because I the couple times I've played it I'd always been into larger group setting and just call it a lot of times. And by the way, that's from splutter splutter, spelling over in Germany, every time I played it's in the larger group setting I've never played it with my wife and we, it's a lot of the games. I play the two of us in. So I wanna make sure game is also going to be compatible with that. Now there's some games I buy to not play with her no offence to her. But, like I just need my time to, but food chain. I'm like, I feel like she might like this, and I want to know before investing, because that base game can be ninety dollars because it is harder to find an so Barda friends copy, and we played it three times in four days. The two of us. And so she really liked it. We played the introductory game which you cut out the half of the rule set. So how food J magnate works is you are, you're building literally and organizational chart and the people you have in your organizational chart like CEO recruiting gal? Yes, it is basically the nineteen fifties. So some of these things are very, very much not progressive views in terms of the terms they use on some of these things. So men tended to be more in leadership positions, and women were not in there were more supportive. Not really what I agree with. But it is what they chose to go with for the game basil time period. And based on the people you put in your organization, chart, you get to take those actions on your son. And what you're trying to do is you have a little little store, essentially a restaurant, and you're selling off either beverages or food or both. But you're also doing all the marketing. So this is actually really cool tension between everything of do. I want to focus on short-term gains focus on long term gains. Do I want to really develop my people, and there's this really great tension there? And once the Bank runs out of money, you reveal these cards that everybody put it on the front end, and you reveal how much longer the game's gonna go based on how much more money gets out. It's the Bank when the Bank runs out again game is over over as the most money wins, my wife after the first game the other two she dominated me. She is actually really good. And it makes sense because she was managing children's toy store, which is where we met and says, she knows retail. The thing the reason I wanted to bring this up the size game to play. It is ahead, a really cool experience, that my wife kind of kicked me in the pants to do, and that was she asked me that Email the designers of the game as well as the publisher because what is going on? This game is actually really reflective of my work for my PHD. And so I emailed them not expecting anything. Just wanted to say praise of, like, hey, y'all did a great job with this game. Wanted to tell you about these great experience. I've had with my wife and also she encouraged me to share my background. The designers and the publisher. All emailed, me back now, one of them, just like I'm glad you're enjoying it keeping joying it another one of the, of the designers wrote me, they'll pretty long message saying, first of all, thank you for the praise. It's not often we hear from gamers, but it's really nice when we do, and I also want you to know something, and that is when we play testing the game we actually had a name for it wasn't food chain magnate. It was human resource manager. And the game was essentially doing that organization chart, the stuff I'm doing my PHD and says, I want you to know that, that's what the game was called before it became a thing, because that's what we were actually going for. So it's wonderful to hear that, that is the connection that's being made out there in the world. And so I just wanted to bring that up because it was really meaningful to me eighty here back, but I could tell that they really just want to hear from us, and so, like, don't hesitate to reach out to them. Don't hesitate to Email them and message them. And just you never know what kind of message are going to get back. It's always nice to enlighten, somebody's day, and give them a better day. That's really cool that you've got a message back. I'm kind of impressed by that again listeners, I encourage you to go back and listen to the first time we talked about sue chain magnate. That was we had. I think it pretty, pretty interesting conversation about it. And I shared Mike on my perspective on the game but I'm glad to hear that, that your wife. Also enjoyed the game, Bruce that you have somebody else to play with. And it's, it's really as always nice to hear back from folks who when you're communicating so great that you had a chance to have that experience. Yeah, Josh, I just really appreciate the thoughts on that to listeners. I think it was to go, but it's in the title of the episode. It says Jane magnate. I really like it. Spoiler alert. Josh, it's not his Cup of tea, but we have a really great discussion about it. So if you want to hear more about it, that's over there. It's also on YouTube now as I told you before. So Josh what's a game you've been playing? So I've now gotten this next game to the table twice really interesting game that I wasn't sure about whenever I picked it up because it is. Essentially a wreath ostensibly redeeming of an older gang a slightly older game, and that is a Zule stained glass of Sintra by plan b games. And so for listeners who are unaware Zule came out in twenty seventeen twenty eighteen reading won the spiel for twenty eighteen so, yeah. And as was a massive hit, obviously, as Bruce, just mentioned won the spiel game of the year in Germany, and which you were pulling dice from a center or sorry, pulling cubes from a centerpiece and placing them onto your player board trying to create the most efficient and effective design and complete the most of your mosaic before the end game condition is met, which is filling up one full row or a player filling up one full row of their design. Sang glass of centra follows a similar mechanic in that you are once again pulling tiles from a center piece. Except for this time instead of placing them onto a. Grid system. Like in the original Zule, you are placing them onto columns individual columns, which are going into stained glass pieces. And so you have on each column, a certain pattern that you are trying to achieve with the different pieces that you're pulling. Creek. I will say that it is one of the things that I think, is interesting about comparing the two is, I was a little bit hesitant on purchasing stained glass, mainly because I owned Zule I liked Zule. I really enjoyed it. And I wasn't sure that this was going to be different enough to really warrant a new game less really less than a year after I bought the, the versus Zule. And I don't feel like I played that out to a point, where it's, it's solved for me. Though, I will say, I think my fiancee has solved based game Zuelle. She has consistently stomped me into the ground every time we played for a while. Now sounds familiar. Sounds like my story. Yeah. It is. It is a game that she is her favorite game, while Zula Zola's her favorite game right now. Okay. And she is she she is a huge fan. So I haven't gotten a chance to play stained glass with her yet, but I did get it to the table with a few other folks. And I think it, it mixes things up. I interestingly enough, I was questioning whether I would keep both of these games in my collection, and I think I will actually surprisingly enough while they are very similar and play style. The. Thought processes and the decisions you have to make our unique enough that I think it's worth having both of them. By no means, are you required to have both of them. I think you could choose one or the other, and you'd be perfectly fine. But for my purposes, I like variety in my in my collection. And so I think having both of them in my collection each of them while similar scratch, it kind of unique IDs for me, whenever I'm trying to bring a game to the table. So I really enjoyed this. Bruce. Have you had? I know you played Zule. I'm pretty sure have you had a chance to play stained glass ever. I have actually the first time I played it was the night before be Deji con in the fall, because it was one of the hot games from s and so it had to the table set up there. So is learning the night before, and yeah, I thought it added a lot of nice variability felt, you had some of the same touchstones of Zule, but then there. These different things that are added in that we don't need to go into the podcast. But I will say the scoring was a little bit more complex than baseline Zule, and it's really great to hear how much she enjoys Zule. That's wonderful. It's just one of those things of I can completely understand that worry of, like, if I already have this do I need that. I honestly think they're two very different games because of the one thing you didn't mention Josh is that when you're putting things into this columns if you fill up a column, it's kind of like tetris where the row goes away, but it doesn't go away, flips to like a thing that gives you more points. So it's actually kind of cool. It's almost like you ship that piece of glass off to the place and, like, here's your new one and then if you were to complete that to get even more points. So I think the two are very different, but have touchstones of the same, and so they definitely learned to improve some things. But if you're looking for just like a, a simpler game, I think regular was more your thing, if you're looking for a little bit more layers going on than Sintra might be more your thing all agree with that one hundred percent. I think is dual is a Zula. So easy to teach and easy to learn and people pick up on it right away. Sintra there's a little bit more thought process and get meta gaming that can take place. I think especially with the way in which the scoring works. I think the thing I actually really enjoy a lot about centra. Is that scoring in base game will scoring takes place on an individual's player board, whereas in centra scoring takes place on a common board? And so you are able to more easily see where you are at in comparison to other players, which makes it a little bit more competitive. I think, yeah, but they balance that out in my opinion because of the way that they did it because Zule has essentially that the mayor steps, but they'd run up and then try and jump and gets the flag. Those this putting stuff into. So there's not that many spots to track of for patterns, right and colors with Cintra. There's a. A little bit more. So yes, they made the information on score easier to see, but they added a little bit more complexity and so it doesn't have as much hate drafting in my opinion, that Zule can sometimes have if you method out L, but Bruce, you have not played with me. Well, we'll to be determined, I guess, listeners and tells me he's going to whoop me in this game. When we get the place in and so, yeah, well, that's just my take on it. When I got to play it, but like you have some insights, there, I think the I hate drafting is a big part of my game play in both the Zule and Sintra. So we'll see how that goes Bruce. All right. Well, at least identified the shark before giving before getting eaten. So in terms of later games, I'm gonna go with that. So actually got the chance to finally get to play space base by Aldrich entertainment group. AG josh. I don't know if you've been able to play space base. No, I have not it is a game that it has intrigued me a lot. So I'm interested to hear what you have to say. And I didn't get played just vanilla space-based save a little bit. It's actually there's some layers there and itself. But also got to play with the new or satellite expansion and so space base is if you've ever played the game Macci core, which you can pick up everywhere you can get up at target and you pick it up places like that. So this quick first introductions going to be ubiquitous for space base and much Koro essentially, you have a player board in front of you or numbers in front of you and it's like gambling on a table because you're going to roll two dice and you're going to use the results of those dice. And if you have those numbers reflected in front of you, you get the rewards on the cards. That are listed in front of you. Space base though ads in all the numbers from one to twelve and you start the game with them, plus one higher power thing and what you're doing is you're trying, you can either. Use the numbers together to get something a higher number like twelve or you can split the numbers. So if I had six and five I could either go for Levin, or it can activate the six and the five and each of those spots, you're going to have different things you may give you one money. It can give you one income bump or victory point those three things. You're trying to have the most victory points at the end of the game. And the game will end wants somebody hits a predetermined number for us. It was forty victory points. And what you're doing though and what they did. And what's fascinating about space base is there's this really cool thing in which you are taking your little cards, which honestly look kind of like the size of band-aid. They put on literally that size because you're fitting twelve of them in. And on the bottom of the card printed. Upside down is this red part that where you're trying to do is you're trying to actually get get that number. And then tuck that behind because you're gambling, and you get the result when you roll, but if someone else rolls the dice and that act that number show, up of the numbers that you have that are tucked behind you get the now showing power. So the red things are activate on other people's turn your trying to balance the cool stuff that you get to near turn, and the cool stuff that you get to do on their turn space is a lot of a lot of fun. It's relatively quick really easy to pick up. What's funny is every time it just kind of devote like went down in the spiral of LEGO. Movie like spaceship spaceship, it's just like space base. Like space base. Everybody's just wanted to play space. There's a lot of fun. And people are asking for it to come to the table. But it is not necessarily fully my type of game but I like the things that brings out in other players, and that was cool. So I'd probably use it for the love. More light hearted night. But also timed, like bring out some fun, emotions of gambling high risk roared with players, and then it's gonna quickly before turning it over to you Josh at in. Interesting questions I wanted to say what the satellite expansion was, so essentially, it's a combination of an expansion meets a legacy box. It's a small box with different at stack of cards, and you're only allowed to go so many cards. It's got cards as stop, and then you can proceed to the next stopping point, once you do this thing. And so it adds in new layers to the game as you unlock them as you're like exploring space, as you're discovering things in space. Because technically there's kind of a story behind all this stuff now that is super light. It's kind of just there on a lot of this game is just making fun of some other Sifi space, tropes. But it was a cool way to introduce an expansion and get people wanting to play the expansion more and the game or without flooding. The players with having to learn all sorts of new rule sets. So it kind of like what they did there. Because it's like legacy, we're I'm getting to explore, but honestly, at the end of the day, essentially, how do we game by and layer this information in a meaningful way, so that we were not just sue NAMI, the players with new rules? So, yeah. That's a really interesting way to do an expansion. I had not heard about the expansion. So I'm glad you got to share that Bruce. That's really unique and something that I think I would really enjoy in an expansion the ability to teach. I enjoy games that I can teach as we play a game that I can set up and say, okay, it's your turn you have choice ABC and. Let's learn as we go, so the ability to do that written into the game. I think is really neat. I was interested to hear. So for me much Cora was one of those games that when I first got into playing games was was a huge hit. I loved it. When I first started learning games. And it is a game that I don't think I would play again, really under almost any circumstance at this point. Yeah, it's a little light for me. It's a little too luck based for me at this point. It doesn't really feel good. When I win. So. It's interesting because I think a lot of people who have a similar feeling towards much co that I do have spoken, very highly space beige. But I don't I have not heard or seen the distinguishing factor between the two and that's a really good point. And I can speak into that so. Yeah. Macci koro. This really luck. And it's really samey because it's the same is the same set of cards coming out over time. It's a very limited pool of cards. Right. And so, you know what to expect the thing about space base won the whole thing of trying to balance being able to get things from a number on your turn and be able to balance and stack powers that you're getting from people and other people's turn like that's a new layer there. And it's really clever, and really cool. But the thing is too. I didn't talk about this, and that is the reason you get money in the game because money isn't worth anything to you at the end. But there's some decks of three sets of show of different types of ships. And so there's a lot more randomness that can come into the availability and what's in those three markets for you to buy. So it's like the cheaper ships, the medium ships and the like the more expensive things and obviously the powers going to scale. With but the thing about it, though. I think the reason it works. And the reason you're hearing that this is just my thoughts on this Macci Koro in itself is really all that luck and the element of skill and making meaningful choices, really not fully there now. Yes, you do make choices. You can choose to buy one building or the other one and yeah, it's going to be a thing. But here's the deal the way you flip those cards. You buy different ships to replace them. And that's how you get to put him up there. So you're getting more meaningful choices out of and variety of choices out of the things you could add to your board, and it's going to come out different every time. That being said, I do want to just give some credit to much because they are coming out with Macci coral legacy. And I have no idea what that's going to look like, but that's the thing. And so maybe they're introducing some of this, but I did find people feeling like they're making meaningful decisions while, also trying to push their luck because you can try and make meaningful decisions that you're gonna pay a lot of money and lose a lot of money for getting this one thing, but on your turn, guess what you get to roll to special dice. No one else gets to roll. And so does have more skill involved of knowing how to not only pick the right ships, but pick the right ships that are also going to synergy is while also maximizing your return on investment. Yeah. That is interesting in different enough. It's definitely one of those games that I would like to give shot issues light enough that I don't think it's something that I'm willing to, to put money down on. And I think I've talked about this in the past. I'm kind of in a position right now where in my gaming group? If I'm not the one putting the money down on it. It's probably going to take a visit to a convention before. I get something new to the table. Make sense in. This was actually not my copy or anything. This is actually a buddies copy who brought it and she brought it so all the things and so but I mean, we're all in kind of those situations and I know our listeners can also be right there with you on that, Josh. But also, I know you've also volved your gaming group, quite a bit so kudos to what you have done, and there's a lot of great games. And when there's so many games coming out. There's also that whole thing of gay. K-k-keeping and just thriving the game community instead of just throwing new stuff out them as well. Absolutely. Yeah. So that's been space-based. Do you wanna talk about your last one? Sure. I'm just going to kind of very briefly go into this one, because I think it it matches a game that the game I just talked about apparently I didn't know this about myself, but I've gotten very into stained glass in the last couple of weeks. And that is because in addition to Zule stained glasses, Sentra, I have been playing Sagrada, which is a nother game that is based on the creation of stained glass. Artwork, specifically in Sagrada, you are drafting die that are different colored, you have a player board in front of you with a card inserted that will have some type of design the design will include numbers, a number of pips. In different squares, as well as different colors in different squares. And so as you're drafting die, you must first start from an edge of your board. And then you must build off of that you cannot place, a piece that is not orthogonal adjacent to oh, about, you can place adjacent. It must be adjacent in some way to a piece you've already played. It also must match the space you are covering. So if you have a space that has two pips on it. You can only place, a die that has two pips on that space. If it has a yellow space, you can only place a yellow dye. And then you also cannot place to similar die. Next one another, meaning you can't place to twos. Next to one another. And you can. Place to yellows next to one another so really kind of interesting complicated decision making as you're grafting there's a little bit of luck involved in regards to what gets rolled. But then there's some tools that you can use in, modifying, the die or modifying, your board in waste to hopefully make it work. And then you'll score points based off of variety of conditions that you have at the end of the game that you'll be made aware of as you play. Cigarette is one of those games that I just so I compared and I think I talked about this a little bit when I mentioned role player a little while ago that, that role player and Sagrada vary much feel similar their dice, drafting and based off of the value of the dive at you're adding, and the color of the dive at your adding, you're board to me. Sagrada is the better game design. I think. Role player has the better theme. But for me, Sagrada just feels a little more gamey feels a lot more. Like I'm making a lot more interesting decisions than than I was in role player. I think Bruce, both you and I have probably had a similar experience with Sagrada where the first time I had ever played this game. I actually played with an individual from our old game mild game group, your current game grew who is actually a stained glass artists, and so similar to my experience with Teotihuacan where I was playing with a archaeologist I got to play with someone who actually knew what they were talking about. And I think she's written a phenomenal review on BG about Sagrada and how it really does a great job in capturing what it is to make stained glass. Art. So that was a really neat experience for me again. Sagrada is again that I truly do love, I think it's a really elegant design. It is simple in its concept and incredib-. Ably intricate in the strategy and the mechanics that, that are involved in the decision making this involved. So. I don't know. Bruce, you have really anything to add to that. What is your experience with with that game? Then. Yes, sagrada. I played it in our game group. I have also played with that individual. And by the way, that individuals also the same person who brought space base. She makes sense and she identifies the fact that yeah. They, they the tools that they're using Instagram's makes sense for what you're doing except for, like three tools like those aren't things, essentially, this is what it's like where you're really like trying to do things. Right. But just a lot less cuts and a lot less welding. For me. Sagrada is like just really fun puzzle. You can play it at all sorts of player counts, it's going to be a scales. Well, because you had more or less die. So it scales really, really well. I've done that played just my wife and I played it solo. And I've also played at five five player a couple times. It's gorgeous the components the dice. They put in their awesome. I do think it is a phenomenal phenomenal game. And it the look of it will draw people to the table and have them learn in the way that I've actually explained it because I own it I actually got it in the BG secret Santa from my secret Santa after playing it. I put it on my list. And that's one of the things I got. And so that was really, really fun. And I'm thankful for that. But Sagrada is one of those games when I'm explaining it. I say think of pseudo coup. They have to start from the sides. But the, the spots tell you what thing, what the rules are for those spots, and that kind of mindset of, oh, I can't put the same thing in the same row or right, next to each other, like that's just something that I've helped me teach it now, I do not think it's a Sadako, but just putting those words out there. It's helped me teach it because that is a frame of reference. And that kind of feeling of getting to, like, accomplish something because even if I score awfully at the end of the day, I know that the decisions I made were mind, and it's like I know how it can improve or I want to improve, but I can still be proud of the thing. I did because I made meaningful choices. And so, yeah, that's why I like Sagrada. It's definitely something staying collection for a very long time. And I want to highlight something that you mentioned there between the, the choices that you made and scoring. Well, because you can do in my opinion. Well at the game without scoring. Well. It is very easy to end up in a situation where you're not able to place pieces, because you made poor decisions and each piece that you don't places a negative point. But you can also completely fill out your board and not meet the objectives that were set out for this game. And so you don't score, well, then either, but you still feel really good one hundred you completed this stained glass without any missing pieces. And so that is something that I think is really fun. Especially for new players is you know, I'm not competing to win in points, but I'm competing to comply. I'm competing against myself to solve this puzzle. So it's a nice like layer of a how do I learn to do this? But then the discovery how do I do this? While also doing that. And so it's, it's really cool to watch that evolution that happens. So yeah, I'm a huge fan as well. So listeners go check that out go to the website. And so if you haven't checked it out on our website board, game impact dot com. Does actually a page that has games and gear? So because some people do ask, hey, what stuff do you use a record this? So that's up there. But also the games you talk about on this podcast. Are there any cliques there or support their that you do through those links actually does help us make this show more possible? So do you want to just reference that? So if you're looking wait I heard about a game. I don't know how it's spelt just go look there. It's got all the pictures, but that's a really cool thing. So Josh, there are more games. I would love to talk about, but not because we're pretty much on time. And so with that we're just going to hold some of these games for next up Assode listener. So we've got more for you just tune in again. Josh do you have any closing thoughts for listeners? I'm going to close with the same same spiel always give thank you so much listeners for joining us this week. Please do give us those reviews that feedback is incredibly helpful for us as Bruce mentioned. We're, we're gonna we're gonna cut off here because of some feedback that we've gotten about time.

And thank you all for subscribing rating interviewing us, and I tunes or wherever else you listen to us. And that now includes Pandora, and as always we appreciate hitting that subscribe button. Do it now, please. So you don't miss a single up Assode as well. As town all your friends on social media and elsewhere and helping to get the word out about this show. Okay. With that. I'm your host Sharkey James. Let's hit it. You guys should seriously see the Haiti meals, I get from the CF when I criticized not just the viability of film, but Kodak specifically it think I was talking about their religion or something. Remember the sea in CF g after all stands for cranky. So it goes with the territory, and I imagine that the latest news, a Kodak isn't going to do a whole lot at turn that frown upside down for them, a vein might actually appear in their foreheads when they hear that Kodak Laras is planning to get out of the photography and film business. Yep. You heard that correctly not long after making extra chrome one hundred a thing. Again, they want out lesson. I'll say it again film photography, not exactly a growth business. You know, Kodak Searcy loves the Kodak itself over and over and over again, it's predictable at this point. It has been for a long while actually they not only saw digital coming. They. They were a pioneer in it. And you know, what they said the horseless carriage or digital photography will never take off. We're all about the horses or film have look at Kodak stock price. And you would swear that you're looking at a really sweet black diamond run at your favorite ski resort. It's not pretty and you might recall that back in twenty twelve win Kodak filed for bankruptcy it owed a Wapping two point eight billion with a B dollars to the UK Kodak pension plan. Also known as KP withdrew firesale status. KP paid three hundred twenty five million dollars for Kodak's imaging and document businesses which were made up of Kodak paper photo chemicals and its film business or ppfe as it's called an in doing so Kodak Alaric in the UK shares the rights to the Kodak brand with the Rochester, New York based Eastman Kodak company, which makes the film and paper for Kodak Loris fast forward. 2017 when Kodak Loris announced that actor chrome one hundred would return from the dead, and it did just a tad over four months ago back in September of twenty eighteen then two weeks ago. Now, they announced that they were going to be working on releasing ACTA chrome one twenty and sheet formats as well that was two weeks ago. And here we are talking about them getting out of the business. So according to inside imaging and confirmed now by the Rochester, democrat and chronicle just two weeks after that announcement in financial documents that were released as of this recording. This matter is classified as held for sale. And according to Kodak, LARs board, chairman Mark Elliott, quote, the transaction is expected to deliver a net cash benefit to Kodak Loris in twenty nineteen and quote, so Kodak LARs thinks it's a crap business after all right? And they want out you don't look for a buyer, if you're cranking out the kind of cash that you would hope for you. Hold on to. A company like that and keep making the money. The sole shareholder of Kodak LARs is the UK base pension fund known as the Kodak pension plan. And as Elliot says the fund was unlikely to meet its financial commitments. They talked about the quote potential movement of the fund and all its assets into ownership by a UK corporation the pension protection fund, which saves the day when companies can't cover it's pension payments to its employees. Now inside imaging says that any assets leftover after a new buyer if found takes over we'll be owned by the pension protection fund. Kodak LARs is reportedly doing well overall just not well enough to meet their obligations as I said industry analyst George convoy of Brighton. Securities echoes what I've been saying for years now here on this show saying quote out of the four businesses managed by Kodak Loris, this one was likely perceived add the shortest life span, and is therefore I up for sale and. Quote, a thinks that Kodak will likely stick around saying that photographers and filmmakers by Kodak film because of quote, what they perceive as the look or the quality that they get and quote, listen, I've got a news flash air few people can really tell the difference. They really can't it might make you happy though. And honestly, that's all it really matters. So not judging here just saying inside imaging reports that Kodak's film businesses actually been up for sale since way back in January twenty eighteen if way back is little over thirteen months ago now and while it hasn't sold yet. There's been interest by a number of parties and that one is quite a bit further along than others. Still doesn't mean they're going to buy it. We'll see now Kodaka LARs values. It's ppfe business at thirty four million dollars US and hopes to be free of it by March thirty first of twenty nineteen. So in other words, Kodak's film business just thirty four million dollars in value. I'm going to let. That speak for itself now in a video over at the mothership that was produced by the business channel cheddar while Kodak invented digital photography back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six they said, they didn't want to cannibalize sales of their film and cameras. So they ignored it while others did not that and the company's belief that people would always want to print their photos pretty much sealed their fate. They didn't anticipate people putting their photos on Facebook et cetera and not having an actual parental look at I tell you Kodak Kodak's itself all the darn time. It's what they do. Very well, sadly, and then say film is dead. Did I now I never do that films dead next? It didn't take a crazy longtime at all. After the September twenty eighteen release of the EEOC Dr cannons debut full frame airless body to see their second offering. Now, the canon Eos are p the company's smallest and lightest full frame O's ever, not just in Maryland. We're talking ever. And by looking at it, you can immediately. See that canon clearly wants people to see this as a body that lies below its yo Sar side-by-side. You're just not going to mistake the two of them for each other. You're just not going to cannon wants consumers to know that this body is different not just by looks. But of course, it's price point as well. We're gonna get to that in a little bit here. And you know, what this is what camera makers largely due right? Not all of them. But most they need to help people see that both physically and otherwise they're different level of camera. I mean, look at their DSR's, for instance, cannons got their smaller API. See crop E O's rebel t also knows they e os thirteen hundred d elsewhere in the world in other models, which you can still get at Costco, for instance, with two lenses. No less for four hundred and fifty bucks. Now. They're obviously not great lenses, and it's not a super great body. But for four hundred fifty bucks, you're in a digital photography now. Compare that body next to an E O's five d Mark four and it's night and day. It's fourteen percent narrower thirteen percent shorter and two percent thicker now if you compare that five d Mark four which is full frame to the company's flagship one DX Mark too, which is also full frame. While the ladder is just five percent wider in nine percent thicker, it's a full forty four percent taller. And that's because the integrated vertical battery grip. Of course, you compare all these bodies together. And there's no mistaking what the pecking order is there, and that's helpful to consumers, but contrast that to Sony, and they clearly just don't care and in a good way. They let their cameras speak for themselves. You know, the lower end a seven Mark three and a seven are Mark three have the exact same dimensions. I think they're the same casings. In fact, if you didn't look at the markings on them, you wouldn't know which one's which now this brand new canon e o Sarpi has twenty six point two megapixel full frame Sema, sensor just four point one megapixel 's less than e oh sorry, which is thirty point three mega pixels. And that fact along with the price tells me that canon has other bodies planned below they are ones that have a lesser build quality, a slimmed-down feature set, and I sure are going to be a PSE, and we're talking cameras that are going to be in the ballpark of like seven and nine hundred dollars or so, but is going to be quite a while. I think before we see these APS crop models and certainly not for four hundred and fifty dollars with or without a lens. Let alone to that's just not. Happening. Not anytime soon. Now, the RPI has the same excellent digit gate image processor as in the ER. It has these same ISO range of one hundred forty thousand expandable down to fifty and on up to the digital snowstorm that has one hundred and two thousand four hundred and it can shooting continuous at five frames per second versus eight in its bigger, brother. The are it has the excellent dual pixel Seema's af system with four thousand seven hundred seventy nine autofocus points versus the five thousand six hundred and fifty five in the ER. It has faced an eye detection and around back is a point three nine inch two point three six million dot O L E, D electric viewfinder also knows an VMF that's down one point three three million dots from the one in the eels. Are you know, when you put your ID each of these you will definitely see the difference? You will wish that you hadn't done that? Comparison annual also wish that you say for an SR. Instead, it's that much. Of a difference. You know, when it comes to expectations, especially if you're going to go from a DSL are to MIR less, it's that easy f that's going to be the sticking point for most people. If you don't get the same experience or pretty darn close to the one that you get when you look through a view finder of DS are and you see that image bounced off a mere and up into the pennant prism and obviously to your eye. You're not gonna go for it. You're not you're gonna wish you had held out and got something that was a whole lot better one. That has a million more dots of resolution like the one in the are now under the EVS, and the RPI is a three inch one point zero four million dot varying angle touchscreen LCD which supports touch and drag af, but while it's just point one five inches smaller than the one on the ER. It's a little more than half of the two point one million dots that it's big brother has and that's not necessarily going to be a dealbreaker. You know, if you mainly use that the LCD to shoot and again. Then it's going to be noticeable though, if you compare them side by side, so don't do that. You don't want to do that. Now, if you want or need to card slots, you're going to be disappointed in the ios RPI. Just like the yo Sar and Nikon's e seven z six because they all have just one in the RPG. It's an S D card slot. But at least it's you s too. So there's that now on the video side, the RPM can shoot for K video at twenty five frames per second at one hundred twenty megabits per second with eight bit color depth and not just with external recording Adamos unit or similar, but internally as well, the are on the other hand is quite a bit more capable because you can shoot four K at thirty frames per second at four hundred eighty megabits per second and ten bit when you pipe it out the HDMI port to an external recorder. Now, if you want cannon, log, the RPI is not the body you want you want the ER. Now in my mind, and I dare say in the mind of cannon as well. The main selling point of the RTP is that it's smaller and lighter. It's not as tall as the EEOC are and it weighs in it. Just four hundred eighty five grams with a battery and card versus six hundred and sixty grams of the Sar so the Arp is roughly twenty six percent lighter a difference that people will definitely notice the Arp also has focused peaking eight point three megapixel still grabs from four K video. Why find bluetooth connectivity built in stereo, microphones Twenty-three, custom functions. It's water industrial Sistan and has a battery life of about two hundred and fifty shots. And that's where I say why long you're going to need to get more batteries just like with old Sony bodies. Why don't they put bigger batteries in these things? I know it's heavier but come on two hundred and fifty shots. You don't wanna be changing batteries every five minutes along with the RPM cannon also unveiled its new e. E G E one extension grip to make the RPI a bit taller which goes completely against the benefit of being small, right and lighter and further signaling that this is a more consumer camera that grip comes in black with blue or red accents. In addition to just black. You know, so you can bedazzle your canon Eos RPI that now unlike the rumors that we previously heard about this body. It's available for preorder right now for one thousand two hundred ninety nine dollars US and currently comes with a free extension, grip and more importantly, a canon e f two adapter so you can use your current cannon glass. Whether it's e f or e f s that adaptor alone goes for ninety nine dollars, by the way, and cannon cells that mostly useless extension, grip, which doesn't add any extra battery power or anything just a little bit more height and a splash of color for seventy nine dollars. Now, you can also get the EEOC. Sharpy bundled with a twenty four to one hundred five millimeter f three point five to five point six I s s T M lens for sixteen hundred ninety nine dollars or bundled with the much better twenty four to one zero five millimeter f four I s US for two thousand one hundred ninety nine dollars those prices, by the way, all take advantage of cannons. Current instant rebate, and the RPO is going to start shipping. This February twenty seventh of two thousand nineteen listen, I think this is definitely nice camera. There's no doubt about it. Especially for the price and everything that you currently can get with it. It is a pretty darn decent value. But I think that most people would be quite a bit happier. If they stepped up to the Sar or waited until we see the Mark two versions of these bodies, which shouldn't be that long from now less than a year. And I think it's important to note that like the eels our and Nikon's e seven zero six that canon Eos RPI is a full frame body. Not APS. Crop. So you would expect of course to pay more. Like I said, and it's going to be quite a while. I think until we see crop bodies in both of these systems. There's just more profit to be made in these bodies than ones that are five hundred dollars. My current recommendation is still have a look at the Fujifilm x t to like I have or save up for the t three. You know, there's a ton more native lenses. It's a great system. I love it. Absolutely. Just amazing system and it was designed specifically for a PSE. And I think that's the takeaway here. There are no entry level canon or Nikon merely bodies in these newer systems. We're not there yet. So I think right here in the middle of February of twenty nineteen and then people would be better off to go with Sony or Fuji film or another system and canon or Nikon we're talking there. Mierlo offerings weightier. So see what they have switched. Then next as you may recall just a little over. A year ago? Now, we were chosen the help kick off the Kickstarter campaign for Shimon.

With all the other crazy news of late Panasonic announced their new loom excess series of full frame airless cameras as part of the L mount alliance, and they are the new S one r and s one now we know, of course, that Panasonic absolutely killed it in the micro four thirds market with bee's like the G H bore and the g h five and while those are capable stills cameras. They really shine. Honestly, when it came to shooting video, I mean, that's why most people got him. And it's honestly knows apprise because Panasonic has had decades upon decades of experience in the video market same with Sony. You know, you take what you know. And it'd be a shame not to put that in a new products when it makes sense to do. So right, but now thanks to larger sensors and that L mount alliance between themselves like an sigma Panasonic is making a play for what all manufacturers these days acknowledge is the future and that is the Murless market. I've gone. Over at a billion times here on the show. So I won't now. Okay. Just briefly when you don't have a mirror in the way, you get technology that simply impossible to put an DSL are boom. That's what you want. Right. And of all this craziness. Panasonic says quote Alumex asked series aims for unprecedented image quality with high resolution, rich gradation and superior color reproduction and quote. All right. Listen, I'm pretty sure that since Sony makes the majority of sensors out there, and as excellent as they are Hannah, sonic might not achieve that. We'll see I mean DAX. Oh, Mark another still gonna tell us. But goals goals are good to have. I say take your best shot at Sony. You know, Duke it out give everyone no matter. What system there in the best possible cameras for their hard-earned money that I think we can all agree with now common to both? These new cameras is a five point seven six million. Dot real view finder. Above a three point two inch two point one million dot Triax. He'll tilting display eighty two hundred and twenty-five area fast and precise. Contrast detection depth from D focus autofocus system nine frames per second continuous shooting a tracking moving subjects five axes in body image. Stabilization also known as Iowa's a brand new Panasonic Venus engine image processor dual execute D. S the card slots, a shudder rated for four hundred thousand cycles six K photo via eighteen megapixel stills from thirty frames per second. Bursts four K photo via eight megapixel stills from sixty frames per second, bursts and weather sealed. Rugged builds now, the flagship body the S one are has a forty seven point three megapixel full frame Sema sensor under the hood. With a max is so twenty five thousand six hundred and the native range and expandable to fifty one thousand. Two hundred of which Panasonic says quote gives it the industry's highest level resolution in the full frame merely cameras. In addition to the precise reproduction capability in detail this sensor achieves a high signal to noise ratio by taking advantage of its high light condensing efficiency, despite the large number of pixels, and quote, and since it's a Panasonic you can get one hundred and eighty seven megapixel ultra high resume ges by using high resolution mode where the camera combines eight shots, which are shifted by a half a pixel to achieve that resolution aside from the larger files they're gonna have to deal with which means faster processors in your computer and bigger hard drives. You're just not going to be shooting everything in that mode. But it's a secret weapon in your bag of tricks that you can deploy whenever the situation calls for, you know, think incredible landscapes here not sports the S one, by the way, we'll give you ninety six megapixel. Limoges using high resolution mode. A lot more manageable on the video cited things they'll Alumex s when our can capture four K sixty p video with a crop and pixel bidding, so that's not ideal. But it's still kinda sorta workable as for the looming S one it has a twenty four point two megapixel full frame Sema sensor, which maxes out at ISO fifty one thousand two hundred expandable on up to the digital snowstorm that has two hundred and four thousand eight hundred no-one shooting at that trust me on this. It can shoot four K sixty p video. Well, it's true. Why would you shoot it that you just wouldn't do that to yourself any our can shoot four K sixty p video with full pixel readout, which is all whole lot more desirable. Anna software, upgrade key, which will be available later this year. We'll unlock four to two ten bit four K thirty P internal video capture as well as four k sixty p and fifty. Output via its HDMI port and v log as well. So if you're thinking about a camera that's going to be great all round body for stills and incredible for video Alumex S one is probably what you want between the two of these at least if you're in the studio allot or you're shooting landscapes, let's say you not only need more resolution, but a lot more resolution and Alumex S one are is for you now with their electronic shutters s one are can shoot. At shutter speeds of up to one sixteen thousands of a second versus the standard limit with most cameras of one eight thousands. That's what the S one has. So if you're shooting baseball at say, and it's a crazy bright day with the sun beating down on the field, which used to make me crazy back in my photo journalism days, you could go to that faster. Shutter speed rather than having a stop down your aperture f for from two point eight. But it's gonna be interesting to see though, just how much rolling shutter. There's going to be when us 'electronic shutter, one sixteen thousands of a second might not be desirable. So we'll see now if you have an optically stabilized, elm outlines, and we'll get to that a little bit later in the show. You can get an extra stop of stabilization bring you to six stops. And remember I s stabilizes you not your subject that's important to remember. I asked definitely comes in handy, if you're shooting in a dark room, and you want to drag the shutter to soak up more ambient light or you just want a steady your shaky hands or both to me if you got the option between an IS Lund's or the non IS version, I s wins every darn time and gives you more options and options are good. Now, if you're left eye shooter rather than right? I like me there's an optional. I Cup attachment which fully rotates and helps blocked at extraneous light for you. There's also a new larger battery Anna new battery grip. So if all this sounds good us starting sometime in early April. Of twenty nineteen you're going to be able to get the flagship Panasonic gloom mix. S one are for three thousand six hundred ninety nine dollars US for the body only or four thousand five hundred ninety nine dollars bundled with the twenty four to one zero five f for that. I'll tell you about a little bit later in the show as for the s one that's going to go for two thousand four hundred ninety nine dollars just for the body or three thousand three hundred ninety nine dollars with that twenty four to one zero five. So if you're keeping track here Panasonic jumped from 'em for three also known as micro four thirds all the way to full frame, Olympus is sticking with him for three Fujifilm's dominates with its system. That's designed specifically for APS crop, and we've got canon and Nikon out there. Now finally in the full frame merely market. So I ask you is there any company out there? That's going from something else into DSR. No, no. They're not. That should be a clue next. One of the things that I find really interesting about the photo industry is you've got all these brands that absolutely killed it for years and made money hand over fist, and for whatever reason they fade away because I don't know they either didn't innovate or make changes as they needed to also knows pivoting quickly enough Kodak, cough, cough. And then before you know, it they're back now with Kodak they haven't had much success with that. You know, they keep trying to make last century's technology a thing again when it's clearly not, but lighting that's always going to be hot, no pun intended. I swear. So after going under a few years back Boeings was later acquired by European investment group a rule ius in two thousand sixteen and then they cut it Lucy year later, but now bones is back again, try as you might you just can't kill them. And thanks to a really as seeing the light. Okay. That one was clearly intentional right there. Oh, long with witnessing the success of companies, like go, docs, and others. They decided that time was right to make things happen again. And they're doing that with their XM T five hundred flash head a product that they first introduced in twenty sixteen according Nowak's photo video which a rule ius owns along with Kelly. Matt they say, quote, we are pleased to announce the wax photo. Video exclusive relaunch of Boeing's beginning with the XM T five hundred flash head and twin head kit. This is complemented by a wide range of light shaping tools. A two year warranty and special limited period launch offers and quote now the x t five hundred is a five hundred watt second berry, powered Monteleone. It features canon, Nikon and Sony. TTL compatibility has a built in receiver with thirty two channels in five groups five hundred full power flashes on a full charge of its lithium ion battery it has between a point. Zero one in two second recycled time, depending on how much power you dial in which is in nine stops. By the way, it has an LED modeling lamp of flash duration as short as one ten thousand three hundred ninth of a second were being exact, and we are a cooling fan and high-speed sink. All someone was HSS up to one eight thousands of a second. You know, if you wanna completely kill the Ambien outdoor on a bright sunny day, something I really enjoy doing my Ellen grom LB twelve hundred it is awesome for that twelve hundred watt seconds of power. The sun really is no match. It isn't anyhow this Bowen's unit which has been out for a while. Now is six hundred ninety nine euros which is roughly nine hundred seventeen dollars US currently or you can get a twin head kit for one thousand three hundred ninety nine euros or one thousand eight hundred and thirty five dollars US. So yeah, no discount. If you buy two of them that always cracks me up those prices by. By the way, are with wax photo video in Europe. But if you're in the US being h has the single flash at unit for more than two hundred dollars cheaper at seven hundred dollars US or fourteen hundred and eighty two for the two head kit. And no that's not special Columbus, eight pricing someone's going to get that. And besides Columbus Day was back in October a holiday that is eventually going to disappear here in the US. And that's okay. Columbus was a giant jerk. There are any number of Italians. I'd rather have a day to honor like Louvre for Francis. He's giant and I hear he's a pretty nice guy. Not a jerk like Columbus just saying, I'm pretty sure Lou has not killed any native peoples. So does that you get a day? Now wack says that the XM T five hundred is only the first product announce that's their words as part of their exclusive relaunching, a Boeing's and remember the bones. Mount are tons and tons of adapters, and modifiers, etc. Out there for it. So that's good. And as the mothership notes, it would appear that they're wishing to clear out existing inventory of this model light ahead of some probably much better newer stuff, just a wild guess these bones lights, by the way. I don't know if you've ever used the bones light before this or any other kind, but they are absolutely built like tanks. And honestly, if you're a massive Bowen's fan, I'd wait to see what else they come up with like, I said there's other great stuff on the way since they're putting the band back together. So you might as well wait a little bit. I mean there so many other great units out there from so many other companies as well. And these units are a little bit long in the tooth. So I would say personally hold off. See what else is out there next? I think I mentioned this in a recent episode no-name photo show, but for years, I use those circular type of filters when I really should about the square kind. And when you get all locked down on a tripod and you're shooting landscapes, or what have you square is really the way you wanna go. Now, if you just outshooting, and you need something attached directly to your lands. You don't want to have a whole bunch apparatus on the front then circular, of course, makes a lot more sense. So when I learned that Ben road be sponsoring the show, I made sure to snag their one hundred millimeter master filter holder kit done in the protective carrying case is everything I needed and at a great price to we're talking their quality hundred millimeter filter holder. Like, I told you about an eighty two millimeter mounting ring, a four stop square one hundred millimeter neutral density filter a one hundred by one hundred fifty three stop soft edge, graduated ND filthy. That's not easy to say. So I can knock down the sky, and such you get the idea. They're awesome eighty two millimeter circular polarized. Hey quality filter ranch kit as well as. One hundred millimeter light tend to keep out extraneous light. It's like a silver jacket for your filter kit. It's kinda cool. And yeah, that's quite the kit. It seriously covers many situations, and I'm going to be shooting in and if I want more filters, I know how to find him and since I've got lenses that are seventy two and seventy seven millimetres as I've talked about before I got a couple of their lens ring. So I can adapt those as well to us with that hundred millimeter filter holder, then row seriously has you covered. We're happy that they're supporting their show, and we want to save you some money as well. Whether it's their filters.

Earlier I told you about panasonic's to debut entries in the full frame airless camera game along with some pretty cool items as well. So if we're going to talk about L mount cameras, we might as well talk about L mount lenses, and not the original ones that were designed by like a for that L mount which they sigma and Panasonic now share I'm talking about the brand spanking new lenses that were created specifically for this system by Panasonic. And also what they have coming down the pike in fairly short order here and those initial lenses by them are the fifty millimeter f one point four as seventy two two hundred millimeter f for us and that twenty four to one zero five f four macro I s that I mentioned earlier which you can get bundled with the s one and s one are for nine hundred bucks on top of the price of those bodies, a savings of three hundred dollars, by the way. So if you can get your lens in a bundle. Well, you might not save a bundle in this case. But three hundred. Bucks is not too shabby now of the L mount madness Panasonic says quote, like a camera Panasonic and sigma are set to offer a user friendly solution that will allow photographers to mix and match any of the three manufacturers ABC and full frame cameras with any lens for me others product portfolios. The aim of the L mount alliance is to provide customers with a diverse and future-proof range of products, the advantages are a large inner diameter of fifty one point six millimeters that enables the realization of extremely fast lenses and extremely compact dimensions. The configuration of the lens that camera communication interfaces future-proof, and the L mount also offers an option for the construction of sealed systems that are insensitive to dust and moisture and quote, insensitive not a word that you hear every day. Now, do you know you don't now one of those lenses is the new? Sonic, s pro fifty millimeter one point four with thirteen elements in eleven groups a double focuses than that uses linear as well. Stepping Motors for four hundred eighty frames per second speed a focus clutch mechanism for instant af. Switching a focus breathing suppression mechanism for video shooters as seventy seven millimeter filter diameter or member you wanna get eighty two's, not Seventy-seven trust me on this. Unless you want to buy two of everything or three of everything your money and also eleven blades circular aperture for nice bulk gay, Anna dust, and splash proof resistant design, sadly, no seventy two hundred millimeter f two point eight online. But an F four version instead with six tops of also. Optical image stabilization when paired with an image stabilized body, it has twenty three elements in seventeen groups O'Leary motor with a MAC. Censor drive speed of four hundred eighty frames per second that focus clutch mechanism focused breathing. Suppression, a seventy seven millimeter filter thread diameter, a nine bladed circular aperture and dust in splash resistance now that twenty four to one zero five f four macro I ask and shoot point five x macro photos with a minimum focusing distance of point three meters. Also known as roughly one foot is sixteen elements in thirteen groups six stop, oh, I s when paired with ibis a linear your motor for that four hundred eighty frames per second drive speed focused breathing suppression dust splash resistance of flooring coating to repel water and oil a seventy seven millimeter filter thread, like the other ones and a nine bladed circular aperture. Panasonic says they plan to design and develop ten s pro lenses by twenty twenty as. They expand the s series lineup. And remember like an sigma will also be developing L mount glass and presumably each of them are going to do bodies as well to help flush out the system and options are good. Of course, next. The Pentax k one is still one of the sweetest DS LARs out there. I am never going to change my mind on that. It is awesomeness not the Mark to. I mean. Well, the Mark two's great. But it's a slight upgrade in my opinion over the K one. The k one is much cheaper. If you can get one new or slightly used that would be a much better by but anyhow, the K one in the K one Mark too for that matter are truly special cameras, you'd be hard pressed to find aka one or k one to user who's gonna say otherwise. So if you don't care about Marilyse that is definitely a system worth looking into especially since parent company Rico just announced two new lenses for its Pentax came out DSL ours. And they are the new HD Pentax DA star eleven eighteen millimeter f two point eight E D D C A W alphabet soup of lens and the HD Pentax FA thirty five millimeter f to now that eleven eighteen millimetres. Star series, lenses, an ABC crop lands, and it has the equivalent focal length of us seventeen to twenty seven point five millimeter lens in thirty five millimeter terms, and the company has this geared primarily towards landscape and outdoor photographers, although you could use it for anything. Of course, it has the company's high-grade HD coating to minimize flaring and ghosting to the extent that it can it has a dust and weather resistant, build a focus clamp mechanism to lock in the focal point, even if you try to rotate the focusing or he hit it accidentally. There's also do heating strip that prevents condensation without effecting operation of the focus ring, it has a nine blade rounded aperture sixteen elements in eleven groups and eighty two millimeter filter thread, see eighty two and you'll thank me later. You'll be good to go. If you've got us seventy seven millimeter filter that's going to be a problem with this lens. So don't do that to yourself. This lens also weighs in at one point five. Five pounds also known as seven hundred and four grams. So it's not super heavy. You'll be okay with it. Now that thirty five millimeter to a full frame wide angle lens and when mounted on an Apia seat crop body versus a full frame body. It's a fifty three point five millimeter lens and thirty five millimeter terms, so not wide-angle anymore at all. You would never call that wide-angle. You just wouldn't this thirty five six elements in five groups a multilayer coating to deal with flare and ghosting. It has a stain repellent. Coating a six blade aperture, a forty nine millimeter filtered thread, what you're eighty two will cover in spades and weighs in at six point eight one ounces or one hundred ninety three grams now the HD Pentax DA star eleven eighteen millimeter E, D D C A W and HD Pentax FA thirty five millimeter f two are available for preorder right now. And they're going to be available at the end of this month. Also known as February twenty nineteen. And sell for fourteen hundred dollars and four hundred dollars you us, respectively or respectfully if you say incorrectly now, I don't know about these lenses because I haven't tried them. But if you're a bit of a maverick, and you could care less about Murless Pentax k one or the K one Mark to if you want to spend more money and really not get a whole lot more is definitely worth looking at. You know, it's quite the camera. Like, I said it is excellent. It's really cool. It can to its odd-looking. It's like the stealth fighter of cameras. Also, it doesn't say canon Nikon or Sony on it. And it's still an amazing camera. Imagine that next now I'm not a big fan of shooting film, as you guys know because I don't have the time for all that nonsense. And if you're going to end up digital in my opinion, you might as well start digital why go through all those other steps, you know, I mean, they're plenty of digital filters. That will get you look of various film stocks like the ones that are. Fujifilm's cameras. And also, there's a number of cool things you can do with actual filters. Like, the new I are chrome filter from Kalari vision, which looks like it comes pretty darn close. The doing a good job of emulating. The look of Kodak aero chrome IRR film. It's been a solid decade now since Kodak ditch the film stock, but if you're able to find it twenty four exposure roll today, you can expect to pay about eighty dollars for it or eeking get one of these filters and not mess with film at all. But you're gonna have to get your camera converted a full spectrum status. And that's where most people are going to be lost. Now, if you've got a spare camera, and you've got a couple of one hundred dollars or so to have it converted along with us filter, which was created by French photographer yon Felipe and Kalari vision, you'll be able to create some pretty surreal images ones that might just breathe some new life in your photography. Now. It took about a year for him to figure out the exact train. Admission curve to reproduce the look of aero crew. My are and to my I it's close enough to call it good. This filter has an anti reflective coating to help reduce ghosting and flare laminated for a long term durability. And it also has a fused dual glass construction hit the show notes for this up Assode for the Lincoln over to the pet pixel mothership where you can have a look for yourself and with an audience as large as ours is there's a good number of people who are going to work this for tog Raphy and be happy.
