"audrey" Discussed on OnEducation
"Welcome to the podcast. Everyone our guest. This week is a freelance writer. Whose appeared in the atlantic vice huffington post said utopia among many other sites. She's the author of five books with another on the way and best known as the author of the hack education blog. And i'm so excited to have audrey waters on the podcast. Welcome thank you. Thank you for having me back Anytime you wanna come talk with us. You have an open invitation you just slide into my diaz and it's done. I was just telling you before we went on live that i love reading. I you right so wonderfully It's it's you know it's a craft obviously and and you do it so well Even when you're like dropping bombs The writing itself is phenomenal. And so i i. I enjoy thoroughly. Even if i disagree with you which is not very often i find the writing is fantastic and so i have some things. I'd love to unpack from stuff you've written over the last little while and here. This is a great quote from you. Education technology as a field an ideology sits right at that overlap but appears to be mostly unwilling to recognize. Its role in the devastation. It prefers to be heralded as a savior to many of its advocates. Refused to truly. Examine the ways in which ed tech makes things worse or admit that the utopia they've long peddled has become a hellscape of exploitation and control for a great deal of the people laboring in with and under its systems. Like there's just so much there. I don't even know if i have a question other than i would. Just love to unpack all of that. I think i think there's a huge theme going on with a bunch of the stuff that you're thinking lately just related to this not being necessarily as good as we all thought it was gonna be. Yeah it's interesting. Because i think if you think about the history of a lot of tech particularly since the advent of the personal computer the the teachers individual teachers at the outset really had to be out advocates cheerleaders to get technology in the classroom. Right it was an uphill battle. And so i think For a long time it was an uphill battle. And i think that for longtime people were really just wanted to be evangelists for ed tech There wasn't a lot of space in someone's Space to be critical of ed tech. Because that's what everyone else was was doing was pushing back and saying no schools. Don't need to spend all this money on technology. But i think that that's really the mindset of thirty forty fifty years ago forty years ago and i think things are different now. I think that obviously politically financially Things have changed Technology companies education technology companies are incredibly powerful and they no longer need to have evangelists although they still hire them. And i think that it's time to really reflect. Not just serve. Did has ad tech worked whatever. We decide that that means were not works. But what if it's made things worse. And i think it there are a lot of ways in which we can look at. What's happening right now Which is obviously a crisis where we're operating in a crisis scenario in fact. Yeah but i think that you know. I think that certainly the very least at tech is not a silver bullet right. It is not been the thing that has fixed everything right. This seems like we're smart. Boards came from right and we might have talked about this a little bit the last time. This is my one of my favorite punching bags but this seems like it was like no. No no you want this and it did. It did nothing very little for the classroom yet. Everyone has a twenty thousand dollar smart board in their classroom. Yeah i mean it was one of those great examples of. I think where were no one or very few educators said. Wow what. I really need right now. Is this giant piece of technology to take up like a significant chunk of my wall. Space whiteboard space even For activities that may or may not have been better done on the projector for things that may or may not have been better done Just with a with a whiteboard but yeah schools. Spent a ton of money and really a technology that i wasn't going to change the way which people taught because it was really was designed as sort of teacher at the front of the class replicating replicating kinds of technologies. That maybe now we would wanna to sort of ask questions about with getting students more involved in their learning. There is a good argument to make for the idea that educational technology has made things worse. I can see that being a case you could make what. What's a good example of that. I think there's a couple. I'd love to hear from you what you think are some of the prime contributors to how education technology may have made education worse In some ways. I think that there are lots of things that we can. we can talk about. I think fit one of the things is. I think that because schools are spending so much money on education technology. What they're doing is they're outsourcing and particularly public schools. They're outsourcing really a core part of their mission Teaching really to for profit companies And that really. Don't have i think a commitment to democratic principles obviously don't even have commitment to paying the taxes So i think that really. It's it's it's shifting. It's it's a way this. I think is undermining public education by giving so much power to the technology companies. I mean if you look at what's happening right now to it's like it's as we can't even imagine another way of education happening right now than through technology like there's this we have such a. We've sort of the tech companies of colonize the way in which we imagine. Imagine school happening. And i think that that's a i think that's project Potentially really damaging when you look at some of the other things that we could talk about. Which is Algarve mc bias. For example or privacy invasions or The ways in which. I think some of the inequalities that we see in education already being exacerbated by at tech right giving everybody. Computers doesn't mean that everybody gets better faster. Smarter is able to do computational thinking you the device that is right theory meant to be the guide for that. I mean i think we see you know. I think the research shows that often times when affluent students are are given devices. They do very different things with these devices or their lashed. they're allowed to do very different things with devices. more creative computational work than students who are given devices that are really used to drill and kill And i think devices that are often perpetuating some of the surveillance and policing aspects of school. It's funny y- some of the things you said. That just made me think of something. We talked about on the podcast. I think he was even while not last week with two weeks ago. About a tweet. I saw where someone said. We've only been doing like modern education in the way that we think of modern education for maybe a couple hundred years at like at the most like my great great great grandfathers didn't go to like school the way that we think of school. Now and like the history of humanity's long citation required You know so. We think we know all of these things but we really don't in like this like grand scheme of things. No the impact of some of the decisions were making an already think. Were unwilling we're like we're unwilling to think outside the box to use a really terrible term. But it's like we've already sat are ways that we should be teaching and learning because we we have all of these devices now and it's like yeah. We're good to go. I think it seems like we're we're resistant already. And it's like we barely know anything. I think that's what's so interesting about technologies as for a long time back to the cheerleaders for tech in the eighties They argue that the tech computers were going to change everything. But i think what we see happening is actually most often computers and digital technologies Replicate what was already happening right and so instead of worksheets. You do digital worksheets Instead of writing an essay by hand you write an essay in a word processing software. And i think what's foot. Furthermore some other things. I think get even harder to change once. They are literally in code right. So you know the we. Could we think about the the classroom. That the Interactive whiteboard was sort of imagined with a teacher at the front. It's pretty easy as a teacher. I mean i guess depending on your school but it's fairly easy to move the chairs in a classroom. You can pick them up. You can rearrange them not everybody has to be in. A bunch of rose gets a lot harder to rearrange the digital chairs if you will in software because most of us are programmers right. So you're we're kind of stuck with the way in which are sort of a metaphor here are chairs are arranged. Our classrooms are arranged when we use technology. We just don't have the same amount of flexibility if we want to say listen. This isn't student centered at all teachers. Know how to make some changes in their in our teaching in the physical architecture of their class in their practices. But it gets a lot harder. When you kind of have this system listen coded system sort of faint know. Put down on onto your classroom. It's it's just harder. It's harder to change. i got it..

Are you excited about the new iPhones?
"Been You may have heard that there are some new iphones coming out and the big question is are you still excited like used to be I remember when the new iphone would come out and people would be camped out. Maybe, for as long as days just because they wanted to be the first person on the street with the new iphone. That seems to have gone away the last few years. I happen to think that apple will sell as many iphone twelve's as they've been doing in past years, tens of millions. Apple averages around two hundred, million iphone sales a year. It's just well, it's exciting. It's not the same thing I reached out to some of my facebook and twitter friends to get their take on it Michael Schneider says he re he remains pretty excited for launch a still feels like Christmas while Audrey Jacobson says, she's with me she remembers those days but she's way more excited about her Peleton bike. Then she ever was about the first iphone maybe it's the age maybe it's the priorities changing maybe it's the pandemic, but it's interesting to see how the torch of innovation and excitement can be passed onto another brand. My friend Bruce Brom agrees with me that the IPHONE was revolutionary. In now, apple just makes incremental improvements to make a good product better. Every year as technology innovates is just not as thrilling. Finally. Michael Markman says, it's not the site minister faded is that the satisfaction last longer in other words apple makes better phones that lasts longer since the seven says, Michael the phones have been really good since the ten they've been great and it makes it a lot easier for people to hold on for another year myself. I'm excited I can't wait to see the new phone I have a hard time believing it's GonNa be as big an upgrade. In. In years past because the big selling point is five G., which right now is a big whoop faster wireless networks but the ones that are out there now. Had yet to live up to the hype maybe maybe early next year they'll start getting better
Travel to Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
"I'd like to welcome to the show, Audrey and Manlio Diamante from travels with AUDREY DOT COM and they've come to talk to us a better region of Italy you may or may not have heard of for Yuli. Venezia Giulia. Andrian manlio welcome to the show. Ain't you Chris and thank you for inviting us to be on your bucket today. Thank you Chris Thank goodness well, and we've picked a region of Italy that I couldn't have told you the name of I know where it is about. Where are we talking about? First of all, if we put this on a map Well. If we were to put it on poor looking at the most northerly and easterly region of Italy incense ranked. In the corner literally border the North would be Australia The you're on the right would be slow being young. Then we have the Adriana CCD so we're an also the region of vinet. Oh. So you're about a hundred and solid kilometers from Venice, if you were to be an Bene- some wanted to travel to live in his Julia. Along the highway that would be approximately about one hundred kilometers and. We'll get into his tryst.

We get there. Why are we talking about this region because I'm not going to try and say it every time we say this because you see it so much better than I do what is your connection to Fluey Valencia Julia Well. My husband is born and raised and in. So he actually also be Lionel which is a local language. I actually met my husband and he. Shot on location to Spain, and so a friend of mine asked me to stop in a visitor in Italy and when I did, I, actually met my husband for the first time in this was in ninety seven. And then he later on emigrated to Canada. Got Married. Will and why should someone go to really Well a food essential yet is one of those regions I mean most of us think that there are token room. Most. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately, the name as a reason, I'm right. I would probably say somebody if you're traveling for the first time to Italy to do the Venice. Florence, and the Rome but for anyone who's looking for a more authentic way of appreciating Italy, then you need to go into some of the regions that are less traveled and as you as one of those, and it is really in a very good location if you really think about it because. I so much to offer from the beaches by good idol. History going back to the Roman history, the lull of our history world or one history that is worse. The front was for World War One and some of the worst battles that were ever fought or along from the car so and these own so. which my husband can talk to you more about you have the Alps and will you can go skiing in the wintertime amazing wine the quiet you're y region is world famous. Now they produce some of Italy's best white wines and the photo of course is quite unique because. Latins. A mixture of different cultures the Australian. The. Italian. So it has for a traveler they can spend easily a week and this particular region. and. Enjoy it without rushing and seeing quite a bit and is not just about lying. It's about so much more and if they wanted to add a week. Of the Australia they ads Vania or they could advantage what did I do not doin? The. Bending on how they want to program their time. Excellent will in what kind of are you gonNA recommend for us. It was one week hurry and it would be centered around the fugitive and essentially in Rio. And some of the key points to keep places that I would recommend would be, of course, the as they would be the capital and then of course. We have also the cheated on the time of she that we have sunshine yearly, which is where my husband's mother comes from. And they're famous for the BUSHEL. And then of course, we do the mountain area could pop into Saudis for example, or we could go into van Saun name and Sony in. Leitch are two towns a really represent how he only that was devastating binary choice in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six in really showcases the people themselves how suffered this major earthquake? Literally As you experience that you were there, I did yesterday what about a thousand people who died back in nineteen seventy, six cents I would say a large portion of region was actually essentially destroyed in Seoul the two towns my wife is referring to there called been solely and Jim Malone and they're very they're close to each other right next to each other one of them is a UNESCO side and that's been. So it's a UNESCO side because it maintained. The original character prior to the earthquake even though it was completely built, but it's very touching in it's very characteristic of the regional freely. So we would definitely recommend it

Steve Bannon's arrest has tertiary ties to video games
"Former thirty eight studios CEO curt. Schilling was involved in the build a wall pack. The thing that just led to former Donald Trump advisor, steve bannon getting arrested. This is just a weird tangentially related to video games news story that is just so strange and it also kind of goes to show that if curt schilling is involved in a company, that's probably a good reason to not invest any money. So for the. Non Video game side of the story former President Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon was arrested this morning for issues related to a crowdfunding campaign. He was involved with that was raising money to build a wall between Mexico and the United States of America. The campaign raised over twenty, five million dollars, but apparently, the money was being used for personal gain Audrey Strauss the acting us attorney for the southern district of New York said. The. Defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors capitalizing on their interest and funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars under the false pretense that all of the money would be spent on construction while repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Cole fade the founder and public face of the We build the wall would not be paid a cent. The defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to coalfields, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. That quote comes from NPR story. Linked in the show notes. So that's the main part of it but the tangentially related video games side of it comes from Edward Isaac Dove Air From the Atlantic on twitter who wrote Crisco Bosch is the General Counsel of the build the wall pack that Steve Bannon was just arrested for being involved in as chairman. The advisory board includes Eric Prince Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo Sheriff David Clarke and former pitcher curt schilling curt schilling is predominantly known for being a pitcher in the MLB. I will always know him as the CEO of thirty eight studios, the developer that created kingdoms of Amour with investment funds from the State of Rhode Island, which he neglected to return when required, which ultimately doomed the developer and the kingdoms of Ahmir franchise though then might be making comeback soon, there's a, there's a remake rerelease on the way. It's really gross that money was being raised to build a wall which as near as I can tell is thankfully nowhere near fruition and it's totally unsurprising that it is all collapsing under the weight of its founders deciding to just try and keep the money for themselves. Rock steady responds to recent sexual harassment issues with kind of a weird public statement. The publication. The Guardian recently released a story about sexual harassment issues at develop a rock steady games and how the company had not taken proper action when women within the studio went directly to its leadership wants the article was published rock steady apparently began to take action internally and called a studio meeting but the developer also released kind of strange statement on twitter. Here's the statement in full working on. Our response to the recent news, we received the following unsolicited letter eight out of ten people that sign of the original two, thousand, eighteen letter or still rock steady. The following unedited letter below is from seven of those people. Please note that all involved do not wish to have their identity disclosed publicly under any circumstances. This statement is sent in representation of the current women at rock steady studios who were. Working at the studio in two thousand eighteen who signed a letter regarding issues being faced by female employees. The statement has in no way been asked for or influenced by management or anyone else. This is solely the voices of those involved who are still currently employed by rock steady. We all feel the need to respond to this and to reflect what actually happened at the time and how this has been. Handled since recently, an article was posted in the Guardian regarding this letter, which was sent to the studio heads and HR in two thousand eighteen in addition to multiple other accusations. In this article, we feel that the anonymous source or sources attempted to speak on behalf of all women at rock steady, and we do not feel that this article is a fair representation of us the events at the time or. Since the letter was received when the letter was received by the studio immediate action was taken, which resulted in a series of meetings with the women of the studio to allow us a safe space to talk about any issues we were facing figuring out strategies to resolve these issues and what the studio could do going forward continued efforts have been made to ensure that we have a voice within our. Working, within the studio ranging from involvement, specifically with how our characters are represented to workshops to help build self-confidence within male dominated industries. Throughout all of this, a firm promise has been made that there always an open forum for us to speak out net issues would be addressed with seriousness none of the current female employees at the studio who are involved with the letter were contacted about this letter being released. To the media until we were informed by the studio at the time of working through the original letter with the studio, we were assured that this would be kept as a private matter. As this was what we had collectively requested we feel that our privacy and witches have been disregarded and a private matter has been made public. This has left us feeling that we have been violated by the source or. Sources as it was kept private for personal reasons, twelve involve not to industry secrecy. We would like to conclude this statement reaffirming the importance of any minority within the games industry to speak up and four studios to take seriously as rock steady did at the time and continues to do any allegations being brought forward to work towards creating safe environments for us to work in so that we can make games.

Who asked me to repeat this podcast and she signed it sleepless in Seattle the podcast is about night terrorists have you ever had a nightmare the kind of dream where you wake up in a cold sweat and can remember every detail what was it that scared you and how scared were you really can you be so terrorized that you have a heart attack could you die in your sleep due to a nightmare? The answer is, yes. Yes. You can be scared to death. It's call para sympathetic rebound. Paris sympathetic rebound is delayed reaction of the Para sympathetic nervous system during a tense and or prolonged stress to the opposed sympathetic nervous system. Now. Let's take a look at dreams most of US dream every night even we don't remember doing. So sometimes dreams feel super short usually if they're about something really good like the perfect date with your celebrity crush other times, they can feel like they're going on forever the entire night, which can be particularly annoying if they're scary or causing you anxiety. If you've wondered about the actual length of an average dream, you certainly earned alone there are lot of mysterious questions. About Dreams and researchers are still trying to learn to answer what science does know of Audrey Muniz. This dreams are basically a mental exercise happens while someone is sleeping dreams occur during rapid eye movement Aram part of sleep, which accounts about twenty percent of the night. No one really knows exactly why we dream there are a lot of theories out there according to some researchers dreams exist to process intense emotions or facilitate consolidation of emotional memories. Some believe that dreams help. Show. US. Daytime threats. So the can learn how to avoid them or show US counterfactual simulations today time events so that we can learn lessons. There are also researchers who don't think dreams exists for any reason at all really they just do and what are nightmares nightmare scary or terrifying dreams that typically occur in Rams sleep and leave the dream of shaken or disturbed to some extent upon waking some researchers maintain that for a dream to be a nightmare at has. To be disturbing enough to awaken the dreamer other experts point out that many non scary dreams erotic. Sad nostalgic creative spiritual can be intense enough to awaken the dreamer also. So now let's take this full circle. What is one of the key factors would wake you up answer over stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system and what is para sympathetic rebound but the delayed reaction to the Para sympathetic nervous system to over stimulation perhaps if you dream you die but wake up. In a coal sweat there simply wasn't enough extreme long-term stress to cause para sympathetic rebound but could you be scared to death by a nightmare? The answer is a resounding. Yes and they're sleepless in Seattle is a repeat of my nightmare

"And so so just but you know that said I do think that we are in a moment where the last thirty forty years have really just hill. Everything in terms of what is decent and right in whatever we whatever we have remotely tried to build. Right. So it's SORTA like. We have centuries of slavery to reckon with and the genocide of the indigenous communities here in this country we have. An economic system? That has entirely. Like I said pillaged. The wealth of this country mostly the village, the wealth of black and Brown people in we an Jews are not going to be safe by justice trying to cling to power that like our safety comes through solidarity. If you're afraid right now like fear is such a, it is a distorting emotion, and so I think Jews are understandably free. It's a lot of communities are afraid right now we choose sollidarity over fear every single time that is our sort of approach to this work in that we know it's GonNa take a long time but at the very least we know that when that flag goes up when you're like, I'm a little nervous again, think about what it could look like to actually release that fear and to us that's sort of the way that we wanna think about building a caring economy and world where everyone has the freedom to thrive.

"And ideas from across the Jewish world. Learn more at www dot palo, alto JCC, dot org. This. Is Judaism unbound episode two, hundred, thirty, four Jews for racial and economic justice. Welcome back. Everyone I'm Dan, Lee Benson, and I'm. As we continue this series on race and Jews and Judaism in America. We are pleased to be able to speak with the executive director of one of the organizations what of a number of organizations in cities across America that are working from a Jewish point of view for justice for the entire society. Our guest today is Audrey Song. She is the executive director of Jews for racial and Economic Justice, which is an organization that in their words is. A home for Jewish New Yorkers to organize with our neighbors and allies for New York where everyone has the freedom and opportunity to thrive Jews for racial and economic justice. Jay Fridge is one of a number of groups in cities across the United States that are devoted to as they put it transforming the City we love from a playground for the wealthy few into a democracy for all of us and to fight and undo oppressive systems in actors. That target harm and displace our communities Audrey says songs. The first is leader to serve as the organization's executive director for those who don't know me roughly Jews or roughly speaking Jews who trace their ancestry over the last thousand or so years to what we think of as the Middle East and North Africa, and she is an active member of J.. Fridges. Mizraki. Caucus Audrey Society has close to twenty years of broad movement experience as a social worker. Organizer Coalition Builder and Campaign Director on issues ranging from immigrant workers struggles in tenant rights to sustainable economies and racial, justice, Audrey sesame previously served for seven years on the staff at Jewish. World Service, and worked with organized labor most recently as director of Walmart Free NYC before becoming executive director of J Fridge, she served on the board of directors for six years including as board chair Audrey says saw welcome to Judaism unbound. It's so great to have you. Thanks for having me. Well it feels like a lot of what we're talking about in this series and a lot of what's going on in America today kind of puts Jay French. An economic justice in the center of of what we ought to be talking about. So we're really excited about this episode and and really interested in understanding what J. Frejus is doing now, and also how it was established what's its history? So could you take us all the way back to the beginning and and give us a little bit of a brief tour about why was it established and when and what's it up to you now? State Bridge was established thirty years ago so Precisely nineteen ninety so we're in our thirtieth year. And we were established by a group of organizers and activists who were living in organizing in New York. Jewish. Jewish organizers who had a vision around. It would look like for Jews to be more actively involved injustice struggles in the city of New York for more just New York specifically who could show up as Jews. But in coalition with wider movements for justice, the original coalition of juicy together for Fridge, were really rooted and Dwight Kite, which is a yiddish term I can get into a minute but you know they had a vision of doing justice work where you live and so. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety that meant they were you know engaging in fights around housing and labour in anything that has to do with what makes New York both a wonderful city and a difficult city to live at. And at the same time that they were starting to organize. Nelson Mandela was released from prison and he was going on a tour of the the entire world to celebrate his release. The victory of the anti-apartheid Movement of course to those of our founders and he was a hero and someone that we was well deserving of a great honor but it was also the case that established. Jewish. Community was actually not remotely interested Honoring Mandela upon his arrival in you're that prompted the group that was forming that with nieces that was there. That already had a vision is really have its first public event which was to honor Mandela, and to bring together folks including Harry Belafonte and others. Marshall Meyer many many luminaries and others who were involved in justice work to come together and say as Jews me we do stand with you. Nelson Mandela the reason he was snubbed so to speak from the establishment. was because of his relationship to Palestine and for me, I came into this work as board member in two thousand eleven and then was really active in the years that black lives matter emerged on the scene and what we saw then in two thousand, fourteen, twenty, fifteen was similar reaction from the Jewish community that we had seen. You know twenty five years earlier. which was people doing justice where for for the Freedom and liberation of people and for the fight against anti blackness were not welcome in our community because of the solidarity that was express with Palestinians. So in some ways, deeper is an incredibly local organization focused on local fights, but with a with a real international decision that all of our struggles are connected. So. If you could describe in a sense, the the mission, the philosophy, the the point of view that Jay French takes today and particularly this question of the racial and economic justice I mean are those and I don't mean this is a leading question because I actually am curious about how the two are woven together not only in reality but also in how the organization thinks of them, you know how how, how do you think about the connections between Racial Justice Economic Justice and Jews you know how do those those three we've together. We think of our fight as fight against racial capitalism I mean if you WANNA. Look to the source of the problem, we have racial capitalism, which at its root exploits labor and that Labor in particular is black and Brown labor and that those things are connected. In order for the wealthy few to hold onto the power that they will not. That is what they need in order to thrive and continued to live their best life while everyone else struggles at the bottom of the ladder, and so that's very clear to us the what we're confronting and so it's always important for us to connect those dots. One very clear example of this is the fight for the budget in New York City. Right we had a budget fight, which in is an economic justice fight that prior to prior to the protests that erupted in May June across the country here New York, we were already already engaged in a fight to with with our coolish partners with communities united for police reform to say, Hey, we're in. A global pandemic, we're also facing a looming recession, the people who are most going to be impacted and struggle. The most are disproportionately impacted by. Kobe. To begin with as with in terms of health disparities, and also in terms of the economic impact are disproportionately black and Brown folks and we are saying that we're going to slash all of the social services while maintaining the NYPD six billion dollar budget. There is something inherently unjust obviously about that entire setup and those things are connected. We need to move and divest money from the NYPD and into the services that are going to help our communities thrive. That was an economic justice fight and it was a racial justice fight together and we can't separate those. I think also we've you know we've done. At David, we have two core campaigns and those campaigns also could be seen as and their long-standing. We believe in this work sort of longstanding long standing long-term work that you have to be in it and really build trust over time and really build your vision and built power, and that none of that happens overnight. So for many years we've been working. On a campaign, hold the carrying majority. Some people think of that as.

"The ones after a Betty Broderick and it has so many elements layers, the twists and turns or probably even more after the actual crime of murder is committed so. Get Ready. Let's do it. So Audrey Marie Hilley known to most as Marie was born in June nineteen, thirty three in north, Alabama to parents Lucille and Huey Frazier who were both local textile workers? This was right after the Great Depression and Maurice Parents they knew that a single income was not enough. So both of her parents worked while Maria was primarily raised by her aunts and other relatives by all accounts Marie parents. Felt badly about this, they overcompensated by spoiling Marie and I basically allowing her to get her way most of the time. So she was reportedly entitled and used to getting what she wanted from an early age. But the Fraser's have really high hopes for their daughter and so did Murray she was confident. They moved eventually to Anniston Alabama where Marie would attend high school and where she would meet her future husband Frank Hillary. Keep in mind Marie was a very attractive young woman who had. She was very involved academically she was looking at this time for the secretarial career. Remember this is also around the nineteen fifties nineteen forties frank served in the Navy but returned to Alabama after to take a position in a shipping department where he eventually moved up the ranks to a very good supervisory position. Franken Marie married in nineteen fifty one and they had their first child Michael in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, I believe while frank was on leave from the navy and then they had their second child eight years later her name was carol and she was born in Nineteen. Sixty. By all outward appearances, the hilly's had it all they had good jobs. They had the boy and the girl they had a solid reputation. They had a nice home. They had the American dream but there was trouble brimming under the surface for sure. The first problem was marines spending Marie likes lavish things and she spent way beyond what they could afford, and this became a problem that escalated. So Marie was this time you know in the sixties and seventies where you could take out credit around town recall hearing this. But so she was going to all of these different places in getting credit, but then she couldn't keep up with the bills and so by about one. Thousand Nine hundred seventy, three, nineteen, seventy, four, frank was he was finding out about this and he was getting irritated and she was at this point she had collector's coming after her and she also had secret po boxes all over to hide the bills from him but he was onto her and hip tolerant of Marie spending for a certain time but he was getting ready to put his fist down but even more upsetting the rumors of Murray's many sexual liaisons outside the marriage which might have been attributed to just rumor. But for the fact that Frank Kelly came home early one day from work and found his wife Marie in bed with her employer in their home. So did every room. Yeah. No, it's true right in your own home, right so did he leave her? No apparently frank confided in their son Michael. At this time he was studying seminary. So he was doing Christian studies and he was married at the time. It was going to ask Ole to us is a little adult time. He's out of the House and he's a religious man and frank confided in him and I don't know what his position was. But what happened was that Frank Forgave Murray and he? Stayed with her, which really would turn out to be a fatal decision for him in May of nineteen seventy-five Frank..

You've been incredible. So maker by. Back. We'll get into the book second the back to the. Platonic relationship saying I. Think Odgen I really. Our heart behind even tell him that full story in our book we spent an entire chapter kind of really trying to address the topic because we noticed. That so many people when they get on the other side of fidelity or they go on the other side of problems in their relationship or they're falling in love. Ninety plus percent I wanNA say ninety nine percent just to be conservative ninety percent plus of them really know how it happened. It's just like how did I end up? Accidental seemingly insignificant choices built a friendship or built up decisions over the course of years, and then you find yourself in in in a fairer problems or being closer friends and in. Just you find yourself going away from your spouse because that's what you've chosen in the micro moments year after year after year after year. So are heartless just say like, Hey, if you're not consciously aware that you fall in love with those who spend the most time with like there's nothing there's no. Obligation to stay in love with your spouse. There's no obligation. There's no like required like your your heart doesn't just choose your spouse your decision to do. So we were just trying to say like, Hey, the insignificant decisions that you make do add up over time. And nobody sets out into intentionally haven't affair it's an accident it's not an accident choice but because of all the small little micro choices you may. Add Up to its little soapbox I feel like that's an. Important. Point to get across because I was our heart behind it is just like hey. Be Friends with whoever you want but like also just think about it just think about you're spending all your time with and whatnot what it could end up. To, be I, WANNA. Be Fifty five with my best friend here. Love in life because I've I've we've guard our relationship, we put boundaries and our kids, our grandkids and all that stuff like we have this vision for what we want to create, and so we're going to try to be as intentional possible without being religious about it also. That's a heart behind that man a lot. I've been feeling that a lot with I mean having a kid changes time, but especially within within a marriage where you just have less energy generally and so Shaun and I get into a conflict. There's always like that one moment where I'm going to be. All right. We're going to work through this in a healthy way. part of me wants to say now you don't like you don't have the energy for this do it and it is such a battle every single time to make myself realized that if I don't have this healthy conflict. It's a little wedge that I'm putting in our relationship so like. Again. They're healthy conflicts but like they need to be had and I need to respect Sean Hey, Andrew I didn't like how you did that I can either be like. All right. Let's talk about it or not Nari. Now I don't I don't want to. Energy so The person that like wants to talk about the conflict in process at through and who's the one that's like I need. You. Always WanNA. Talk about it I like be a dead horse I WANNA. Make sure it's solved. It's never coming up again we love each other we're gonNA cry it out. We're GONNA it out. It's going to go on way too long but I wanNA talk about it. You Oh one, thousand percent I. Tell Myself. Under a Bushel. Jeremy We joke like Jeremy Blinks forgiveness he's. Done over it. Forgiving you means I never after thinking about it again done he doesn't want to. I know that like deep down like that's. Not going to be good later. So I have to like FRY it out of him, but then also like on the flipside. When we do have a conflict I am A. I don't invite Jeremy into the conversation I demand the conversation. So I'm Lyceum we're having this conversation and I think this is one thing that's been really really helpful for us with that in our own specific marriages are mayor journal because every week we have a time that. We've invited each other to this time where like we're not emotionally charged. It's outside of the moment of conflict and we have an opportunity to address things that maybe.

A lot you. Go. We've gone in the season. A lot of our listeners know we've been in this season of. Just starting to choose and focus on specific things and we love the podcast. But as you guys know, it takes a lot of energy man we needed to reserve as much energy as possible to make some other decisions in our life right now and we just figured. Let's say let's call the season. So we're not quitting or podcasts ending season four, four season and given it at least summer breaks of. I really respect that I have been. Really thinking especially during the corn teen were like at first we were like, oh, Gosh, we create all this content because people like need to optimism and positivity, and then I feel like about a month and a half into that we hit rock bottom show bottom. Tall. Wear. Like we got. With you. Yeah. It's it's tough and it takes a toll on. Like my mom whenever we have a podcast interview or we're about the content, it's like, oh my gosh, like we got to prepare and then like deduct prepare enough. Oh did I, miss this. Am I going to like It takes a lot of mental space does and So I. I. Respect that also in light of. I don't know how you feel about this if you've thought about this but like. Rachel and Dave Hollis that whole situation of of dim getting divorce and really total Shannon I. They were doing a lot of things that Sean and I wanted to do with the marriage conferences and and the books all about like having healthy relationships and what it's like working with your spouse and it really made me pause when when they hit their thing, it's okay. I never want to touch that. What can we do to protect that? So I respect your decision. Yeah. Thank you, guys. That did come as a bit of a shock and I personally Audran I felt. We felt this for a couple months now a or really maybe a year we've been like holy smokes we gotta start pumping the brakes and start evaluating. Four years ago we quit the family television. Show. In effort to do all this odd casting and online right books and encourage and inspire, and it's been nothing but on but it come at A. At a cost for sure as everything does. And so we're definitely evaluating right now and we shutdown always more which was a company that was based on Audrey. Life Mantra always believed the more that's within you from the three twenty and we shut we cancelled our book contract and. and. Lean back yeah. Back and slow down because it all it catches up really quickly and. And so easy to paint pictures online in with what we with what we do an often I want us as you just said stay so far away from that we want us today as true to ask as healthy as possible. Say Notice things was definitely a requirement for us right now I was Gonna ask what we were looking at the. The big news of you releasing Bursts Omitting the second manuscript book but Sean and I went through the phase of saying no, not too long ago and in my mind I was like I'm saying, no to these things are shutting the door to these things. So I can open more doors and I realized that's the wrong meant that like. I just gotTa say no and just there's something to. Be. Said about being content in half with. The Internet us. It just shows you everything. You're not every thing you could do everyone you should be everywhere you could go. It's just all of these name ships feelings in were being bombarded in the news wearing I mean that's a whole other element of the anxiety problem and it's like all day every day or consuming. A billion reasons of how we're less than. Yeah, it's really fascinating emotional problem. A lot of are used as we know is facing and we're facing ones that are like in it. You know it none of this is to say bag. We love what we do. It's awesome i. just feel like pacing ourselves worth thirty starting our family to kids we don't. Yeah. We don't take over the world by thirty five, and that's something like really embraced the last couple of months in midsummer decision. So. I mean, I don't want to linger on topic too long but I feel like we could dive into this very deep because Internet I've had a lot of conversations like this. Actually like when you're within like when you're in industry within entertainment or social media. Your job is to create so. Off Work and you're not on your computer and you turn your cell phones off at five o'clock you never turn work off you can't as soon as you turn it off, your career stops and it's such this over consuming career. We are constantly trying to think of what image you're portraying, what you're saying who you are when you go out to the grocery store because it goes with your brand and Andrew Nye have talked a lot about when it comes to a podcast. What do we want to divulge? What do we want to talk about? Because we're also putting ourselves on the line and were being vulnerable and it's almost like marital therapy but yet, there might still be open wounds like added. Now we hit rock bottom. But I do think I think it's a really complicated. It's complicated. You know time and career to be in like guy said, you're taking a step back to have perspective on the priorities. It's so easy to get lost that way. and. It's so easy to be like, Oh, I want to take over the world by thirty five. I, have to do more. We have to make more we have to create more we have to. What.

Maxwell comes from a prominent family in the U. K. Her father was was a media magnet there. And she and abstain met in the 19 nineties. They dated for a period of time, but on a broader level, she became a close confident of hiss. They had a professional relationship as well. And there have long been allegations in lawsuits brought by Epstein's alleged victims that Maxwell for years helped abstain recruit young girls to be sexually exploited on even after Epstein suicide last year, prosecutors said that the investigation is, you noted, continued into his associates and possible co conspirators, and Maxwell was seen then a za likely person of interest for investigators. She's facing federal charges now what are the charges? She faces six counts in all, including conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in sexual acts and conspiracy to transport miners. To engage in criminal sexual activity. She also faces perjury charges for allegedly lying about her role in the scenes activities when she was asked about it under oath during a deposition a couple of years ago. What are prosecutors saying about what they allege? She did. Well. The events detailed in the indictment took place between 1994 1997 on they relate to three underage girls who were allegedly abused by Epstein. Here is how the Acting U. S attorney in Manhattan, Audrey Strauss summed up Maxwell's role. Mansell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Prosecutors allege that Epstein and Maxwell had a sort of systematic method for luring these young girls in they would pretend to befriend them by taking them shopping by taking them to the movies by asking about their family or their school life. Maxwell would encourage the girls to let Epstein pay for their travel and their education, and prosecutors say that this was all part of a scheme designed to make these young girls feel indebted to abstain. And once Epstein Maxwell had developed a report with these with these underage girls, prosecutors say that Maxwell would try to normalize sexual abuse in a couple of ways by undressing in front of the victim. Or being present when Epstein was sexually abusing the victim on in at least one instance, as we heard, Strauss say, prosecutors allege that Maxwell participated in the abuse herself.

I said in the Intro, so many of us have been. We've been thrust into this unfamiliar role and were struggling and I. Do want to acknowledge up front that what we're currently doing is not exactly typical homeschooling. like we didn't choose this. We didn't really have time to research and gather supplies and get excited and prepare, and I also think there's a lot of. Women who don't really have control total control over how it's being done. Because their school district is saying that they have to do certain things or an online format and other school districts are more lax, and so it's just an interesting time plenty and I were just discussing that the other day. How different it must be for every mom, who's homeschooling right now or every parent because Bonnie and I did choose to home school. It was our choice, and we got to choose our curriculums and everyday when we get tired or upset her out of patience with our kid.

It wasn't something that she chose and she can't comfort herself with her her thought of yet, but I chose this.

"Can go buy a sixty inch. TV for for five hundred dollars now and do a lot of what you're doing on a whiteboard you know that is five thousand dollars from smart By the fact that they were sold as this thing that was going to revolutionize your classroom that teachers weren't going to be at the front of the school any class anymore that students are going to be the center of the learning by using the whiteboard. None of that happened almost like like I can. I can say it pretty like in my experience. Anyway I know there are anecdotal anecdotal experiences. Where this happened and it was great? I'm sure I can go to hear lovely stories about their kids on the whiteboards bring it. Let's go go but to be honest I tend to agree that you know interactive whiteboards. Were you know one of the Ed Tech Disasters of the last ten years one of my favor a favor arguments. I heard and I think it was probably also from and if the exhibit hall when the Salesperson touted that they were interactive and the students could actually check themselves themselves in in the tendons in the morning and that showed the you know Johnny moving their name from absence a- present and I thought you have been have had mechanisms of johnny checking into the classrooms and the very first school decided decided to take attendance. I think that you know really overselling. The idea that technology is is is creating new opportunities when really. It's actually just selling you a very much more expensive way of doing the same old thing And so for me. I've I've I find interactive whiteboards to be pretty uninteresting. I find it really fascinating. Does that one of the reasons why they saw such A. The climate popularity was the argument that every student should every student should have their own device and so no I wonder I don't know what the differences between what school district is spending to be honest getting a big white screen in front of the room or for you know thirty five little streams in front of each student so I don't know if they're if the money I don't know I don't know what more expensive What I was GonNa say to Audrey as we were just at? FETC CONFERENCE AND THE BANE would've main sponsors of the entire conference was permit committee and so permit their whiteboards. As you put there. It's still a humongous even till today. We have tons of schools that have shifted like you just said to one to one devices Who knows if that's actually a better practice by my argument with Mike was basically ten years ago when these came ktar classrooms? We didn't know what ten years would end up happening. which is good that we have this article here to tell us like? Hey look at all this stuff. That actually happened but that there's a bunch of teachers who did try to do the best that they could with those things. Those were district purchases. Those weren't teacher your purchases. That were made those district purchases. That were made it an investment. I don't know if those those like you said should we just invested that money. Those money's the people probably that's a lot of the things listed like should we just truckload of superintendents got sold old hard. Yeah I think I mean I think so and I think that it's I mean I'm always fascinated by By five things that seem to sweep you know sweep across district decision-making And because I think it is important to recognize how how much of this is really outside of a classroom teachers and what you know what you end up with I think the other piece of it is that these companies when you you know often they come with a anything seeing the true for for ipad. Cuba they come with a certain set of Bob where propriety proprietary software on them to show. Your hands are really tired tied whether you have a big a big screen or a little screen. Your hands are often really tired tied with the software her with the software that comes on it. And so this idea. You know this idea of a revolution Not really so. I think we should go up the next because I think it's one of the most controversial things on this list. I think it's going to be one of those things that's got to blow up the internet which I'm so happy to do and and what it is it's actually number six on the list at it. Says everyone should learn to code and Mike and I have had all kinds of discussions about this mike being a computer science teacher. An advocate of coding and I would just questioning a bunch of different things. Just because. Just be the devil's advocate. You know And we've been sold this concept concept and I was listening to actually to recommendation by you Mike to Andrea Egg. As far as I was listening to him speak about coding and kind of this concept that everyone learning the code even Shifting the shifting of job professions to coating to coders dinner. I mean this myth. That's is being sold out there that we're going to have truck drivers that are going to be retrained. And they're going to become a coder and they're still going to be able to live the great life American dream or whatever might be and he his argument Andrea is like this is not first of all. There's that many jobs of those second of all that's not those people's we don't know if that's their passion and WanNa go and and do those kinds of things. There will win enough that we can just train somebody to just drop in and be a professional coder is not just that that easy and anyway as as far as schools are concerned you were told that we were told. There's a massive skills gap that too. Few people have studied science technology engineering or math and employers. Can't find the skilled workers new field so teaching everyone to code is somehow going to move people into these professions than suddenly finally get the USA. Backup top or Canada. Sorry Kit Kat it up backup on top as far as the to this profession itself so I thought it was a great rick topic to at least have a conversation really to ask you questions. You know your thoughts more than anything else you know. I think it's I mean one one of the things that I find so fascinating when when you hear these something like stem suddenly become such a priority And I actually learnt but this year it before it would stand it would smet science math engineering and technology that I guess I they find them was better but this That you know they don't there. That's a strange set of of disciplines to wrap together. And there's a pretty interesting a pretty interesting history about how that kind of came to be and I think that it's important and also to to connect to that to that the in order to get it The of these The H. One B. Visa a lot of tech companies You there's actually priority priorities priorities for stem and certain field of actually re named them so Certain school certain Departments have renamed themselves in order to become more stem so for example economic departments had Economics is not listed by homeland security as a stem field Whereas econometric is stem and so several several? Oh universities have renamed their department econometric Because they're able to get more money and able to get more visas For for students didn't and so it's hard to see some of this stuff as just nothing to stuff is deeply political and it's generated by a lot of industry A lot industry influence and I think it's always important whenever we hear these kinds of narratives to stop and think sort of WHO's behind them who's hunting one. And I think the you know the the everyone learned to code the code dot org push is really an. It's really an industry it's really an industry push And I think I'm not sure that I'm not sure that through the coding stuff is yeah. Because it's a it's not that it's a superfluous a skill. I mean there's lots of like. Is this really a bad thing though. Like like I mean teaching code. I think the problem is that the the the problem we have. We already have a problem with with curriculum. Right it's it's hard like something's gotTa go Rhino and we've already decided I guess when when we decided to prioritize standardized testing in English Berlin link language and math that are was going to go and that music was going to go and that in some places you know p. e. is is going to go and I I worry that will meet with that. You know what what what do we. What do we get rid of in order to spend more time with With cutting yeah and and you were saying Audrey to expand upon this. What do you to? What end is are these companies pushing the coating? What do you think I mean as far as that? Because you said something behind this kind of movement this the concepts and then the Co dot in Oregon and I mean everybody's got free coating sites of some sort or another would you. Would you think if we were going to say okay. We're ignoring yeah. What's what purpose? Because I actually like it. Oh here I hear you idea. I think that the I think it is an effort. I think it's really a powerful effort to kind of reshape. What curriculum looks like and I think? Again I know that the in Nam go do no I believe it was in Alberta for example The oil industry really worked hard to reshape. What the curriculum look like for Environmental Studies? And I think we would look at that and be like Oh hell no. I'm sorry the why should the oil industry get to tell us what we teach in the environmental studies classes. That seems like take A bad idea and I. I think that having industry town school what curriculum looks like Is is not a good idea. I think that I think particularly for for democracy and I think that these these companies vision of what Code and looked. Mike is very branded if might be really different than Than what you might think of as sort of a as a non branded non industry supported introduction to computer science or introduction to computational thinking but what ones Google decides that it's GonNa it's GonNa you know give the You know lay down the outline of what the curriculum look like. You can bet you're not going to be learning things that for example Microsoft is interested in its programmers learning So you see you kind of see. The division between the apples really interested. It's an people learning twist for example so that you can build a iphone APP That's that's A. I think that that's that's really different than giving people foundational knowledge that they can move from programming language. The programming language or have a working understanding a broadly speaking of computing. And I think that financially. It's it's funny that you mentioned stuff like that because Google created needed this whole digital citizenship curriculum in the last year and a half or two years. And there's not a whole lot in it about like the ethics of advertising sizing and the ethics of search and data where your personal data is going to do Google searches says and like what you know when you say you know okay. Google has something you know what you know what's being recorded. There's not rolling those digital citizenship conversations. That that aren't being had in in in a curriculum that is is otherwise very good. And I think teachers including like I've used that curriculum but now that I reflect on it and I'm like you know they purposely omitted some stuff or at least didn't like get into a because that's them they would be talking about right so I think it Tang on about stuff like this right I think I mean and I. I'm glad that you brought up the Google on the digital visiting ship Curriculum people too. Because I I think that it is incredibly important that we better equipped students to navigate this information society right right and I. I'm not sure that knowing to code is as poor as an as is the key to that I mean for one thing I know..

Are Beanie leany. Who is the CEO founder and executive producer of audio brain? Who is as far as I'm concerned? The best in the business when it comes to sonic branding and we talk through how she her team at audio brain have completely recreated the sound of my brand.

The pieces of Music Audrey is referring to okay so let's have a lot of fun northern voice. Let's get started. Hey there audrey. It is so much fun to have you on the Alexa in Canada. podcast thank you so much for joining me and and thank you for having me and I'm so glad we got to have this and get this together absolutely. We have a ton of talk about end Audrey for those. The people that don't know is as far as I'm concerned the best in the business when it comes to sonic branding and we're going to talk about my experience. It's of going through a process of creating the brand new. Sonic branding for me. And for my podcast so Audrey before we get into that what can you please take a moment and introduce yourself to my audience so that they know a little bit about who you are and what you do sure My name is Audrey beanie and I'm the founder. CEO and executive producer audio brain. I've had audio seventeen years in Benin. Sonic branding now for twenty five. which is branding is strategic and creative process that surround the development of a unified side authentic consistent? Sonic experience for brand. And that's what we specialize in. We've done it for a long time and my company opening spin because that's a pretty fantastic work in this area. We've done a lot of voice branding. We've done a lot of sonic branding. We've done xbox walks through sixty we do all of Holland America cruise line onboard experience. We been music supervisors for nine Olympic broadcasts with NBC. We've we've worked with. IBM and we work with individuals such as Terry and we help people find their sonic DNA and those audio qualities that are unique to the individual unique to the brand. That's amazing and Audrey really is as I said the best in the business you've heard some of the companies that she's worked with you've also won some pretty incredible awards. No you wouldn't bring this up on your own without me asking but go ahead. I love you to share some of the words that you have one. Tell the audience please. Oh Oh my goodness well we we WANNA communicator award for best corporate identity of Virgin Mobile USA. And we've won these two special things. Things called Emmy awards that we want for our work on our Olympics. We won one for Beijing Olympics. One for London Olympics and a bunch of other watch the the me one very very special very very special. That's wonderful and for the listeners. That have listened to my voice. I help podcasts. They will know that you join me on there and we talked a little bit about healthcare applications for voice and we realized that you were working on the some of the sonic branding for Vancouver Olympics as well with NBC And that's right and that's my hometown so we had special connection there as well and boy. Anyway you've done some incredible credible things and that's my point and bringing that up so okay so listeners. Listen Up to what Audrey has to say about sonic branding because this is good stuff now. Here's the here's the. There's the background so I had created my own sonic branding when I first started my podcast. This is going back now. A couple of years and I was very fortunate. I don't even remember to be honest. Where was the first place that we met? We've seen each the number of conferences now but wherever it was We started talking and we had this connection and you very graciously graciously offered to look at my sonic branding and help and so I want to take the listeners through that process S. and learn what it's like to have sonic branding done by a pro such as yourself in the rest of your team so maybe I can get you the sort of set this up. And how do you approach. Approach this show. Maybe before that as well maybe comment a little bit on you know why this branding is important okay. A lot of people will create audio. You create them as a one off so they will create a sound logo of an open to show play music their events and what they're doing is they're they're not. It's like not putting a foundation under a house so when what we do is a little bit of the opposite. Yes it will do research. We'll do our discovery we'll do a strategy. We'll try to find out what makes you you. And what is the unique audio DNA. Donna because what we're trying to do here is create a consistent experience a consistent landscape brands. That do this great. You hear it and you immediately. We know what that brand is so for example if we did the xbox three sixty which someone yesterday pointed out to me was in this article is one of the top up ten audio logos and why it works to me that it was a great article really great company but we didn't just do the xbox three sixty. We did a lot of research search. We did the rooming soundtrack when it debuted at the Shrine Auditorium. We help facilitate the band. That played the launch party. A very very well known banned because they paralleled the brand so when you have a sound and it's the sound of your brand you leverage it out consistently and I'm not saying saying it's the same exact thing every time but it's the same way you'd have a visual identity you wouldn't have different consul over the place you wouldn't have your your your colors change constantly. You wouldn't not have guidelines for how to apply it in different environments. You want it to look where people see it and they immediately really recognize it and you WANNA have it. Where if it's really well crafted? It's flexible and could evolve over time but people don't do that with their sound until oh now because now this is really exploding and I tell people all the time they're like. Oh my God. Sonic brands like this greatest new idea. It is he's not at all I mean I'm doing at twenty five years would is new is three things. The technology emerging technologies and all the places that one one it must go because doing a lot of voice I with doing a lot of podcasts. Were doing a lot of things. Voice enabled devices and medical in the a home. So we have that immediate need. You have a consumer. That is in the driver's seat that makes that ultimate decision of what brands they want to connect with. And what podcast hottest WANNA listen to and what products they want to buy and if they hear this disconnect on different platforms or when they're in their car. They're getting a different experience than what they see in the advertising -tising it's GonNa feel really weird to them and they wanNA feel emotionally connected which brings me to point number. Three is exactly that in a lot of ways. We're very very disconnected technologies and amazing thing. But it's taken that at that empathy and that Uman connection took a picture at our holiday a family dinner of the kids table and every single one of them was on a device. So audio is this amazing easing emotional connector so as we have all of this advanced technologies when we can create an authentic sound and it's consistent when we're experiencing send that brand it feels very familiar to us and it makes us feel good so that's why it's important. Yeah and you know and this kind of goes back to what we were chatting about on my other podcast as how music and sound and audio has such a to describe it but it's just such a profound owned Effect on what we think and how we feel and emotionally and all of that. I you know I come from a family of musicians and my mother's music therapists and we've spoken a little bit about this and and it depends on what type of music it certainly sets the mood for what you want to portray and I think that leads into why it's important to have a a sauna. Branding that is specific to the person. Oh I completely agree. It's and I teach sonic branding and I started. Start a program at Pratt Institute. So visual design is can learn to use another sense and then I work with the master's sisters and branding program at SVA. And now I'll I'll leave it to them to announce but there's another design nine university that is going to launch sonic branding program The spring wonderful featuring be presenting it wonderful wonderful. They're learning thank you but they're they're learning that it's so important when I teach my very first class and this people listening can do this at home to for themselves..
