"audrey" Discussed on Six Degrees of WTF
"All right. So Audrey got home from her job. Her jog no. Not the job at the job. She found Chris, who had not been there before. Okay. Standing there completely naked. Back, hey, baby. Don't you want some of the house? Standing there completely naked. Holding a butcher knife. And this went from bad porn to American psycho very quickly. Yes, yes. I don't understand how we reach this point. This is why I watch these things. Or read these things. He had shaved his entire body. I don't know what's going on. It sounds like he's planning a murderer. And because did you ever see that movie tend to midnight, this just reminds me of that? Charles Bronson back in the 80s, where this dude was killing nurses, but he would do it completely naked. Oh, interesting. Yeah, except for he had pubes because they did show the dangly bits. And he didn't shave his head. So he could have left air. So I don't know why he. Yeah, hello, that even more probable that you're going to leave. Right. Anything shed. So, okay, so he's standing there completely naked, holding a butcher knife, and he rushed at her and forced her into the garage through their interior. Forced her into the garage, and there was a blanket in there. And he forced her face down. He tried to rape her anally. With the knife at her throat. Oh, I thought you were going to see with the knife. And I was like, oh my God, no. Okay. No. I would have done it for that. No. No, the knife was at her throat. Her throat. He then stood up and told her that he was going to call her ex-boyfriend, which he was sure. She was having an affair with. The dude lived in Kansas. He was sure they were having an affair. She was going to call this ex-boyfriend in Kansas and force him to listen as she died. That's what he tells her. Psycho. He kept accusing her of cheating on him with this guy, and he wanted to know who the real father was. Of their firstborn malachi. She kept telling him it's you. Right. You are the father. And he didn't believe her, and she said he just looked at her. And then he put the hammer. Oh, no. Didn't put a hammer down. He hadn't picked it up yet. Hold on. He put the knife down and picked up the hammer. Oh my God. He hit her four times. Twice on each side of the head. She was still completely conscious. She was hurting. Oh, yeah. Then he doused her with gasoline. Oh my God. She could taste it in her mouth. Ew. He lit a candle. A lovely candle that she had bought. She remembered buying this candle for Christmas or something. Like it was a nice scent. Oh my God. And he just tossed it at her, like he was tossing her the mail. Jesus. She went up in flames. Oh, shit. She was conscious through this entire thing. And she specifically remembered a moment when she was sure she was not going to. She was like, I'm going to die. But she pictured her boys as orphans. And. Found the will to not only live, but to get help. She was engulfed in flames. I can not stress this enough. God. While on fire, she managed to pull up the garage door. Manually, Chris had run into the house. After he set her on fire, he ran into the house. Underwear on in case somebody sees me. I mean, if someone comes by, I'm sure someone will got a look decent. So a neighbor spotted her. From across the street, ran over, put the flames out, and called 9-1-1, and they told her they told the neighbor to get her into a shower which I did not know this. I guess, apparently you were supposed to do that? So they told her to put her in a shower. The skin maybe? I guess so. I feel like that would hurt, like a mother. I know. I can't just feel like knives. So she got her in a shower. The ambulance came the helicopter came because she was going to have to be airlifted to Tampa general hospital. A paramedic who is on the scene said that her skin hung from her face and arms as though it had melted. Oh my God. I can't fucking even. Okay, so in the meantime, a separate fire had been set in the living room. And John O'Hara, who was the workman measuring property lines in the neighborhood. He spotted Chris. And Chris was in the flames, and he helped pull him to safety. So Chris had gotten a little burned, but nothing terrible. Right. But Chris first words to the paramedic were. Did I kill the bitch? Oh my God. Hello. Hello. So Audrey was put into an induced coma for 6 weeks. She didn't get to see her son until three months later. And in fact, the person her youngest was, I think, a year old at this point. And he had gotten so attached to the person who was caring for them. It was hard for her to just kind of keep in mind she looked completely different. Yeah. So she hadn't seen them for three months. Meanwhile, Chris was charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and arson. So Audrey woke up in December of 2009 and she felt completely lost. She endured excruciating surgeries. In therapy. Yeah. 80% of her body was covered with second and third degree burns. 80%. That just hurts. At the trial, here's the part where I'm like, at the trial, Chris tried to convince the jury that she was trying to kill him. Oh my God. Yeah, she was the one who wielded the candle and the gasoline and he just defended himself he kicked her and that's how she got caught on fire. Now luckily the jury after asking the paramedics if he had managed to kill the bitch. If he had managed to kill the bitch. No, he didn't ask the paramedic that he asked the workman on the planet. Okay. But yes, no matter what, dude. And this guy testified at the trial and told him, that was what he said to me was did I kill the bitch? So yeah, no one's gonna come on now. So luckily, the jury did not buy that story. At the sentencing, Audrey said, and I mean, she was up there. She wore because I watched part of the trial. She wore a sleeveless top, showed her arms, all the scars, she, I mean, her face just on her chin just kind of went completely straight down. And you could see what the paramedic was talking about where it just looked like it melted off of her. Because it wasn't that long after this fire that they had the trial. It wasn't like years later. But in her victim impact statement, she said, I ask that the court your honor, not show mercy on his earthly life because he did not show mercy on mine. I love the way she phrased that. The defense asked the judge to consider the shortest possible sentence, which would be 12 and a half years. No. No. The judge think goodness. Sentenced him to life in prison. For trying to kill his wife, 30 years for the arson and 30 years for the aggravated battery.
Domestic Symphony - The Evolution of Digital Audio Technology
"For a new home appliance. Let's say a new washing machine or dryer or a dishwasher. We ask ourselves a lot of questions things. Like how much does it cost. Does it come in different colors. What features does it have. What did the review say. Does a refrigerator crisper actually do anything with so much to think about. It could be easy to overlook what the product sounds like For decades thoughtful sound design and music was limited to the world of entertainment specifically movies tv and gains over in the world of manufacturing. Sound design was almost nonexistent. As long as the product worked in looked okay. That was good enough. Sound was an afterthought if it was even considered at all recently though that's all started to change in the last twenty years as smartphones laptops and tablets became more common. Our home started chirping with carefully. Designed sounds but for the most part are home appliances. Still just made noise in decades past devices were limited a cacophony of noise. That's audrey are beanie. I'm the ceo founder and executive producer of audio brain. We are a sonic branding firm. When audrey i started working in sound design nobody was thinking much about the sounds of household products. Nobody really paid too much attention to those alarms. And those buzzers That's what that world was about. It was really not much intention to the sounds. Your heard within your home but these days appliance makers are paying a lot more attention to how their products sound and they're asking sound designers to help them make new sounds. We're looking for sounds that add value not sounds that ed noise but that enrich that experience and make people feel really good

"I mean you you you not everybody the microphone like you and i did not everyone accompany mark. It was mark mark okay mark. I'll answer this way. If you're not effective in an environment go outside of that environment produce extraordinary result and then bring it back to people because a lotta people resist change when they don't see an example of it and that goes back to just our brains are wired towards fear and you always think change is good. We're trying to change her good but we have to remember. Human beings are built to avoid change. Because it of anything you don't know or know how it's gonna look you resist because just is that how you did it. Is that how you did it. Because you started working with in the movie with movie producers right and and then did you work with. Larry ellison did you like you. You kinda worked in the tech world to kinda worked in a whole bunch of different fields of rock. Now right is that is that how you did it. That's what i'm doing too. I can't get no one would vote for me on either. Let known for me. I'll come back to this. Is that kind of how you did it to go into a different field produce results and then brought it elsewhere. I mean. I didn't like i started off at the entertainment business on camera and then i made it a pivot towards executive colts consulting and paradigm shift work and the nature of cultural change. And then i pivoted back. Brought the two together. And i thought years later after i gained success. I thought what if i could bring the two together when who knows about leadership knows about changes dealt with thought leaders in the world effectively in corporations and made major changes and then somebody who knew storytelling knew how to reach people knew how to reach their heart. What if i brought them together. And then i spent a two years mentoring george. Lucas produce it a producing partner mccollum just training me and how to be a producer and i launched my own agency because it was easy for me to do instead of trying to get a job. Somebody and my first client was. Larry ellison and i and i launched an island that he bought and then i just went into start picking just just just just but to your to your question. Yes one of the things. I was trained in. And i applied it to everywhere else as when you go into changing organization or or an organizational culture or a group or a community and and it's very fixed had a long standing belief system that has wrapped around it. Don't go in there. You're going to get eaten up like putting your hand in a blender go to an outlier somewhere with a smaller town. A it's an organization. Go to a little smaller office in the all of the offices. Were there and prove your theory. Your philosophy your pilot and once you get those result bring back believe me. Everybody's ears open when when it affects and it's it's accessible and that's what i've done you don't want to bring in this woman who looks like this and the guys are getting opportunities and i'm not going to sit there and complain about that. I'm gonna go out and prove that. I could do something and i'll come back and then i'll ask for more so and then you'll end up on a podcast with peter.

"You know it's interesting. How pete and i do the shows because we call each other before and it's a strange thing but it's like every person we we look through the lens of really kind of falling in love with this person. It was kind of even before. I got on the on this the last couple of days. I looked up your life and one of the things that i told my son this last night when we were having a drink and dinner and any and i said i said christian i just love clay. And he was like why don't we. I looked at his life. I went through his life and the things that he's done and accomplished in and it was so unique. In its rate how you parented chose to do that. And then you know you're singing and then you're acting in christmas songs and then the podcast and then the political running and i thought this what i was left with in my heart was like this man. Shh rulli is contending with living his way. And i make up his damn model out you. It was very inspiring for me to go through it. And i am pete an i confer about people like that before. We get into the podcast. We'll just like sit and talk about the person i'm like. Don't you love that thing. Did you read that thing to. And we'll just go like that and like before we go on with that person we just are so already in that space of looking at who they are and by the way this is how he coaches. It's how he works with his team. It's for me what i feel. You get the best out of people as you. You might not agree with them. But there's things that you could love about them and we literally had that conversation before we talked to the guest guest is done. We talk about them afterwards about new things that we learned about them. It's just a space that we're in. It's also a conscious decision on your part and not just not just to read about these people who you're talking to beforehand but also to choose to find things to be positive about right i mean don't you. I mean that's what they got. Never ever ever talked about my own child. But i will say one thing. I'd tell him myself you get to choose whether to be positive or not. You get to choose. What kind of attitude you wanna have. Today i'm and you make that conscious choice and theresa. I'll just tell you it's so easy for me to be mean day and be mean to people b. cynical it takes nothing takes no finger lifting nothing but when i have to be hypercritical with myself and dissect a conversation and ask myself. Did you leave that person better than you found him. Audrey did you did you. Nah that you went off and said what you had to say. Maybe that persons father dad. That week i'm like i don't know what that person's going through and i i mean especially nowadays i go back and i go to clean up say. Hey i'm sorry but this is what didn't work for me about that. So tell me how landed for you and we. I've had some great conversations. And i made friends that i probably would never made before. But that's my that's not something. I'm hanging over people that's a commitment. I have to myself that just like you said play just because i could produce results with aggression doesn't mean inside my heart it makes me feel good. It actually makes me feel more lonely in life mena from houston asks. Is there ever a time when activism or standing up for your beliefs is inappropriate. That's a really good question that we minna. I'm assuming minute authorities say men. Are there ever a time when activism or standing up for your beliefs is inappropriate. Yes i think my personal thing. I think that when you don't read the rome. I really do think there's well-intended people that have worked themselves up so much because like we said they afraid of conduit. Were afraid of losing thing. Were afraid of being unloved or afraid of so many things as human beings that by the time you get yourself worked up to stand for something believe me you are a worked up human being with your adrenaline going and i think a lot of times. You don't look who's the crowd i'm talking to. Who's the audience. Are they going through something. They have something terrible. There's a level of where we've been hearing on so many people that have been bold and outstanding read somebody with the you know how they needed to be read that you're kind of like you know but could you have done that away. Could you waited and listened more. Could you have done it at a different time. Yeah i do agree with that. But i applaud people taking a stand. I just think i'm gonna put other people too. I'm gonna put an asterisk on that and add to it. Because i agree with everything you said but i don't love the word inappropriate so i want to change their word because i think the word inappropriate. I think it would be hard for me to say that there a time when standing up your beliefs as inappropriate but i think that there are certainly times when standing up for your belief or having some being an activist may not be as effective in certain ways so i think that maybe what you were trying to say to. It's not so much that it's inappropriate but sometimes it's ineffective and you might not get the solution you're looking for or you might get the immediate solution but not the long term solution that you're looking for if you don't handle it a little bit more deliberately. Yeah yeah i think men. I'd like. I'm sure if we took an example of what we saw on social media so much last year was you know black community standing up and saying black lives matter. Then you got a gamut of people going white lives matter to in whatever it's like okay but people are saying something in a place of pain. We need to pass that right now. Dipping really need to. That's in my mind. That's what i had in my mind as she asked that question. I do think in that. Case i take back. I'd say that's inappropriate. I'm still fair. I see what you're saying. I see what you're saying. that's not. That's certainly wasn't well timed but at the same time. Even if you do have a strong point yes that's right. It didn't make your argument for it. Didn't help but just inflamed things more. In the same way that defend the police probably inflamed things more then should and it doesn't necessarily get a. I'm gonna have to ask this question even though we didn't really talk too much about dc. But i have to ask this because we were get anybody from raleigh. So mark from raleigh asks. How can normal people breakthrough the d.c. Bubble to make an impact good lord. That question is to me. That's since to you. maybe just maybe it will. I don't know how to break the d.c bubble. You kidding me. a lost the just. Let's change the question for you though. Because it's a good one that you could answer how to normal people make an impact..

"You gotta be pro choice in this wrong. You got to be anti immigration. I mean we mean every things are very black and white in twenty twenty one. America aren't thing. I think they've always been very black and white and very polarized and they've only been it's only been magnified. Its polarization but you never get to the bottom. You never create innovation. You never 'cause anything new if you just look at things in a polarized way even when you go to invent something even if you look at science and the littoral breakthroughs is to be an inquiry. It means to ask more questions. So you don't agree with me. Your your against abortion. Let's say and then for me. I would have so many questions until i got to the bottom that i truly understood. It's not that the person is against it. There's something behind something behind something that is so white. Knuckling to them. That means something. I don't know something happened with their mother. I don't know what happened. But there's something that's so true to this person and so baked in them that you cannot ungraded what they're who can't that just be as simple as not wanting can't that just be as simple as having the religious belief that that a fetus is. A is a person in that particular situation. I don't think we're designed that way. We're we're designed to make up interpretations of what we see which is why you can get five people in an associate accident. Everyone almost see something different. We're we're designed to see the world through our lens. The world claes is not the world that audiences even though we're on the same call. It's never going to happen even if we were in the same relationship. The snow mad. If people wanted we get so mad at people when they don't see things our way. I think because we are so hard on ourselves too because we have so many rules and comparisons and unjust about our own self i. I don't know how people do some of the things that they do. But i can find compassion when i tap into there are things i deeply regret in my life and i can go and examine. Say somebody shine the light on that. If i only stopped in frozen time with that one that would that would pay me so much. Or that's something. I wish i could change about myself. I i think at the end of the day if being divisive and and just arguing with people are avoiding arguments people was the way to go or having just a lane. That's right and wrong. We would have already accomplished what we needed to accomplish. It's not working that that's what that's all it has to go to the bottom line. It's not working and people know it's not working out after the Some people did right in specifically for you. Let me get to where i wanted.

"You have blocked everybody who you disagree with and it's because progress liberal friend. You have locked. Everyone you've disagree with and you think the world feels that way and so when i asked you about whether or not you had people on the show who felt like part of their privilege part of their privileges being taken away from them but they didn't see it it's privilege they just saw it as i wanted to follow up with. Do we think those stories should be amplified. Also i mean even though. I don't agree with them personally. Is it important to hear them in order to kind of understand where people are coming from or is it dangerous commitment in my passion. It's not about what stories should be heard. It's about reflecting the open discussion or the progressing of expanding. How we see one another and it. And i don't mean to bring in storytelling like oh storytelling fantasies. So naive norm with you right. But but i mean storytelling like i loved when i we didn't have them on the show but i would love to gena davis when she put together a foundation and when you look at data that she had researchers do is so extraordinary around story done eighty percent of all storytelling that we see around the world. Eighty percent of it comes out of the united states so when you think about biases who's perpetuating those biases we're really feeding into a great deal of him. She she found so much. Data around how decisions are made through storytime through narratives that really affect bottomline affect children's morale so much data that it was it was truly extraordinary. And even you're talking about real storytelling not not not not fictional storytelling. You're talking about people sharing their experience. No i'm talking about both right so if it comes out of media or films or television or cartoons or what have you on. The data was quite extraordinary. So i do think we always have to remember. I mean even science points to that when someone explain something or gives you data. The brain doesn't remember it. But if you tell a story there's connections with your brain fire off equally and your left and right hemisphere. There's something about stories that shift but look at our lives how we learn from our graham on our ground on what the truth was about our family and what we believed in what we did in all of that. It's that's why i go back to. Is there an opportunity here for us to start to bridge a narrative that's not onsides but is more on ways that we can disagree but we can disagree with still honor for one another and i think that's a very important thing because no one wins some arguing. I'm dealing with such high divorce rate but who who wants to. I mean i literally unless you're a debate group. I don't see people progressing. Anything from jest arguing. And that being the most i would disagree with that because i think that i wish more people would argue this my opinion. I wish people would argue more. Because i think some part of the problem we have again. We talk about politics mostly on this show but in dc that they won't even try to they won't even they won't even talk to each other you know. Get in the room. Yes and fight it out. Yeah argue it out and find a solution about motivation and intention. Right it's arguing. It's fine if your goal is to have if your goal is different. Find a solution right. I think that's different because what you're distinguishing about. Arguing goes back to what i said about the ninety. Eight percent of people avoiding conflict having fear of conflict or arguing than is a pathway not an end result and i think people put so much intention and focus around the argument or the disagreements that it becomes the end of the relationship. Or the avoidance of it. I'm talking about what's the author side of arguing yet. Have disagreements gabby top all of that but do you have an intention on the other side of this that we're actually both going to be better off because john's think we do and do you think we as a nation as a society. Do you think we do have an intention to get along or do you think that we are satisfied with what we're the i think at everyone's core unless there is something physiologically restricting it Like a deep mental health issue. Or something i think at its core. We're talking about that average. Human being every person wants to just have a good life wants to care for in whatever way their family wants to not be in in anything where they feel confined in or where they're in in any state of self loathing or anything they've been through. I mean at at anybody's core that you that you sit down and talk to. I think most people get very surprise. When you look at somebody for face value and then you go and have a conversation like this is really strange. Because i would have never thought we had this much in common. I would the last time you got mad at somebody every day every and like really got pissed at someone. I am innately in my constitution. A very aggressive person out of you really want my god. Yes okay well then tell me. When's the last time you got aggressive with someone. Was it someone you with someone you knew or someone you know i it was actually and and i think that a big but the deconstructing of my narrative and the importance of that is i built this to survive. What i didn't think i could be in life like no one was gonna hurt me. No one was gonna take anything from him. Because i was a woman of. I wasn't getting opportunities as a little girl or seen a certain way. I'm going to show them. I'm gonna have this chip on my shoulder. Whatever and you go through life. Like i did and i had great results and i could lead things but did i make people feel great. Did i make them feel like they felt or was. I like a herd person hurting people so for me. There's a lot of like. I think we all want to do. When we wanna be. Better people there is an unraveling and say you know because i learned this way cancelled. I'm sorry would you get cancelled if people knew these things know. You castle me no i. Don't i hate hated. I hate it. I hate it but i wonder i mean just because i gambling people too. I'm a jackass also term. I think nowadays. I mean in my head but i definitely know it through. The thing that i'm working through is can i be honest. Can i be truthful. But can i leave the other person empower in whatever way even when the truth hurts. Can't do you really come on now. When you're sitting there mad at somebody do you really try to. Do you really care what you're doing. I mean i don't. I'm just going to admit it if i'm pissed at somebody i'm not thinking until maybe a day later. I wish i had leaving. Craig do you go to that person. Two days later three days later. I wanna revisit that conversation now. If it's somebody who. I know someone who i know i do but i usually don't get asthmatic. People who i know. That's why somebody don't know building it's been a practice of mine. Like i can get edgy fast. And i can be really intimidating very quickly and it's something i want to be responsible for but it's probably nothing that's ever to change. It hasn't gotten you where you are this this. I don't know this. You said the word chip on your shoulder but some people who do have that it gets them where they are. And i don't know that it necessarily is something we do a lot of. I can't decide whether i'd rather well let me put it this way. I personally would rather be jackass than a victim of circumstances. I would rather take care my shit and instead of allowing shipped to take care of me. So is there not strength. That comes from having a lot of the trials that you have been through. I mean you've you've gotten to where you are today. Because i'm not saying they were right to have to go through theirs benefit from them. Yeah yes but that means that what. I was informed by. Is that bad behavior gets rewarded when you produce results and i'm partially a product of that too so as human beings we're not an either or that's not how god designed us if people believe in guide or nature or what have you. There's no either or in life. There's many possibilities so when people get in this while you gotta do this or this and otherwise not going to work. I'm always like within. That means you're trapped in a certain set of beliefs that means you can. I mean it's not go back but are we doing that with. Aren't we doing with people who don't agree with on certain issues to like you've got to do it this way or else it's not right you've got you've got to be pro life or else you're doing this wrong. You gotta be pro choice in this wrong. You got to be anti immigration. I mean we mean every things are very black and white in twenty twenty one. America aren't thing. I think they've always been very.

"They're down and the whole month of june becomes about pride month and the whole month of february becomes about black history month but once those months or over a lot of these corporations stopped. Do you really think. Honestly audrey that these folks who fired the left. And charlie rose's and the and matt lauer's of the world. Do you think they really actually did it. Out of altruism and doing the right thing or do you think that a lot of this stuff is still governed by their bottom lines. How authentic is this chain. Yeah well two things about that one. I think absolutely. It's not a matter of whether i believe them. I guess i could roll into. There's a large portion of them. I don't believe if i answer it that way. But it's not that. I believe it's like the functionality of design is that you have to have something consistent in order to keep it alive over time it takes something over time to build and grow. There's no way that someone can post a few black squares and some rainbow colors ron. Your side and then because organizations at companies are organized around what they measure and what they measure is their bottom line but what they don't measure is how caring empathetic with people with they. Don't measure is if people feel and had a sense of being heard or seen those things or diversity. I mean you look at silicon valley. It was like fifteen years that the number was like less than six percent less than three percent of diversity. But you're not going to get them to care about that as long as they're selling widgets. Yes or no right. And i think that's where it behooves. A storytellers are those In media that are committed to shifting the narrative like a astounded. I pagan as a woman of color is that i'm not going to have stories or tell stories around. Oh come on. This is so unfair. Helped black people have help women help. What because i already know that in the world of investment they look at it like well. that's more philanthropic. That's not really a good investment. Because i invest in things right they would be saying i invest in things that are going to be a good opportunity for my investment. So why would i have a conversation. Tell story or build a narrative around is in this sad we should. We should be morally upright to do this. I would instill staff have a conversation about value. What is the value of building these relationships with people. What is the win. I think it's untapped right if leave out image. Look at color palette right if you're always painting with green and brown. I'm gonna tell you right now. Your paintings are not very awesome right but if you bring in full color palette what are you have. You have more options. We already have the data we've had dated for a very long time in the entertainment business in in business that says diverse teams are more successful women in founding positions or on boards. Do better women take do better with less money than men that they invested. We already know that data but that doesn't help us on our day to day moment to moments be able to work together and that's what we have to focus on. How do you convinced people's in on the other side. And i'm playing devil's advocate here. How do you convince people. That's not a zero-sum game that's not a situation where in order for you to be able to use more beautiful colors in your painting that doesn't mean that you're going to a lot of people in this country at this moment. Believe that in order for you to do that. It means you've got to stop using the white crayons ideas before. So how do you convince people. That's not the case. Well i think it's showing areas. Where and building. More focused i think on equity. I think that's where equity has become a very important conversation in terms of You know even with eden i looking at our projects. It's balancing out the entire equation giving opportunities for more people than building knowledge within those that they could go off and do their own projects and we find ways in which they can get funded. I think that's a really important part. Because it's it's true that it sounds like if i break off half my candy bar. That means i get half. That doesn't mean we both enjoy it but the differences. I guess we would say. But if i'm always having less of something it's going to come out of your pocket somewhere. I promise you whether your it's your taxes or whether it's in your the the land there some impacted that That lessening the morale of people by leaving people out of the narrative or or specifically writing that our holding them down so that you can gain something. There is a backlash and we know. There's a backlash because we're experiencing it now. Have you had anybody on. Who feels that way on your show. That they will get less is something of somebody else gets more. If we start to get more diverse. Now i don't think anybody is brought that up there's been some different perspectives in terms of will. Will things ever be different. Will things ever be different. If we don't fully Deal with white supremacy. And i personally don't. I personally don't agree with that. I think people what you get more of what you focus on. I really believe that in life and that again for me you get more of what you focus on elaborate. I don't know what you mean you are you saying you get more white supremacy by focusing on white supremacy. I think you keep the narrative alive. You most certainly do. So the solution would be weapon. Dissolution would be for us to focus for us to build real data real like one of the things that i really love inside of being storytelling. I'm very very heavily. Involved with data storytelling and data analytics. I think they're a very important part to look at how we can measure things. We can learn how we can Dispel are myths. I think that's one of the biggest things for us to take on right now is and myself. Included is too. Am i willing am. I willing to dispel myths that. I've had about someone something in somewhere. And so i've done that recently. Yeah i had. I'm thinking out of the conversation. One of the things that i'm really been doing with the podcast. Episodes is going back and listening to them again and just kind of being able to have some perspective even with the things that i've shared and one of the things that van said in his episode was about how a lot of african americans had felt. It was very unjust. Like why do we have to keep stepping up and going to white people and helping them out. Why do we have to keep standing and fighting for things. We shouldn't have to keep fighting. We've been fighting for so long. And he said yeah. I know it's unfair. But it's necessary. And i think that's a very very simple but powerful statement and when i thought about that it actually did make me reflect on last year where there were certain people that i just was like after i saw how they handled george voice murder whether it's on social media or in discussions that would be around me. Or what have you i. I did take it upon myself to be like you know what. I'm not gonna have that person in my life. I mean somebody for twenty years play. They're not light enough. What a day. But you're not alone in that audrey. I mean they're but not part. I mean to me. At least that's the big problem with everything because we have become. i mean we have become incredibly silo. And it's not just since the last president it was prior to that. It was this when social media allowed us to group together. Everyone who we knew onto one page on facebook and listen to them without dialogue necessarily just quick moments of their one hundred and eighty character thoughts on twitter without having any back and forth or any and then slowly start to peel people away to a place where now your facebook and not your facebook page but he but a global use facebook page is just people who we agree with this. I mean i talked to. I talked to my. I talked to my to me. The bright listen listen. I can't pretend that i'm not guilty of it. I've done it too. And i ain't gonna apologize to the person but i'm not that he got still working on me but i don't i don't i do talk to family and i've i've shared on this show many times that my family and i disagree on politics a lot but i do talk to my uncle who i love love dearly. But i'm telling you we don't agree on politics. But if you but when i talked to him he is convinced that everyone feels the same way he does that. He is a part of this silent. Majority that everyone feels the same way that he does and then i speak to a progressive friend and they are convinced that everyone feels the way they do and then both sides are just shocked that the election became so close that it was fifty fifty almost and i think well it's because uncle..
"audrey" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"To sit down and talk to you and what i was really a storytelling company. A company where we can bring together people when smith talking about in inclusivity show it instead of talking about carrying leadership shots and i think the most important thing. So how do you get people to be drawn to want to watch that. And there's there's more there's more meat that question. It's loaded. Because when i remember when i was starting out in this entertainment business which is frighteningly. Twenty years ago now. I had a bunch of ideas that i wanted to do this. I wanted to do that. I wanted to do the show that that talked about people getting a second chance and every response i got from an agent or whoever manager producer was to ernest to ernest. People don't wanna watch ernest stuff. People don't want to watch good news. People don't want to watch positive stories. They wanna see housewife flipping tables over and cussing each other out. And i thought no. That's not what they really want to see. But as they don't it's not what they want to see. It's what you give them. But as i've gone further in the twenty years that i've been doing this i've started to realise. Damn i think it might be what they wanna see. They don't they think they don't wanna see they think that in politics. They don't want people arguing. They think they don't like these politicians lie and cheat and and our hypocritical but then when they get in the voting booth they vote for them because of the negative ad they ran or when they sit down to watch tv or turn on the show on streaming. They immediately tuned. To the one that is the most gratuitous the most salacious. They don't get hooked on the things that are feel good. So how do you get people to show up and want something that makes them feel good. They should but they and they love it after they've done it. But how do you get them to show up to very very succinct symbol. Answers one is that actually have one answer. And i have an addendum to that answer. But the only had is timing. Timing has met opportunity. And that is this that when we came through the metoo movement when we had the sort of giants starting to topple the companies. That were starting to be held accountable. We notice in the last three ish years. There has been a like the instead of sisyphus pushing the rocket bail. Bedrock has been rolling down the hill. We've seen a lighting of one. After the other people being held accountable for bad behaviour. Now we've forgiven in that era of the authoritarian leadership and whenever we've forgiven so much bad behavior because why because they're producing results because it's working because people are watching it in that great. It's okay that they're doing that. There are a number one result producer. That's our number one show. That's our number one leader. Ceo right but something happened. And it wasn't just one thing it was that in the next thing and then the next thing when that happens what we're experiencing truly fundamentally a paradigm shift. It's a cascade of events that are happening. Close together that start to change the landscape of how people feel not to mention that you take your twenty years. This is the only time in history. We have all been linked together. I can send communication around the world in a nanosecond everybody on the surface ford. So what. I what. I mean by that opportunity means even if we had tried this two years ago. Nobody would've gotten it if we tried it last year. Nobody would have gotten it but the other thing. We're going to say this finish. And i say this all all the time to people because i think it's really we have to always remind ourselves just because data tells us that something successful doesn't mean that it's truly successful as an example. If if i was at work and all the car had was tuna sandwiches. And they serve at the end of the year. And they're like man audrey and the rest of the employees love them some tuna sandwich. That'd be no that's all you give me. That's all to order it right. So if all you give us is sensationalism drama and divisiveness and all the turn onto the amount of choices of what. We're actually going to spend our time doing so. We've got plenty of choices now. Passionately going to gravitate towards. Nobody's watching thousands of shows. They're going to a set of shows just like the average person that watch listen to podcasts. Like seven a week right. That's a lot seven podcasts. A week except for those people you can already start to get the data and numbers as we expand not just what we have but actually attach yourself to the conversation where it's already happening. Even create momentum people want to find out. How do i have difficult conversations with out shutting doors. How do i have difficult conversations and create progress. And i think i read the data the other day and i don't know if this is Please don't hold me to this. Anybody but i like ninety eight percent of people report. They have a problem with conflict that they avoid. So if we've got a nation that has an avoidance to conflict and then we are keepdriving more conflict and then our stories perpetuate more conflict. Are we ever going to get along. I think so so. Somebody's gotta start having the conversation. I wanna go back a bit to what you were talking about with with the rock up the hill. There's a whole bunch of stuff jotted down as you're talking because a lot of points i want to ask about do you. Do you think corporations really when we talk about. We've talking about authenticity of your guests. Let's talk about authenticity of these corporations. These corporations that fired some of the metoo perpetrators that have made strides towards diversifying or showing support for sort. Do you believe him. I mean do you think that at some point some of these corporations are simply doing it because they know they need to for their bottom line or do you think about last week. We had a guest on the spokesperson for the log. Cabin republicans and we talked a little bit about pride month which was last month and how quickly these pride celebrations pop up on twitter banners for all these corporations on june first and then by midnight on june thirtieth..

Audiobrain CEO Audrey Arbeeny on the Evolution of Sonic Branding
"Interesting because there are a conic brands going back to the sixties at had a sonic identity associated with them that. I don't think people really understood what was happening at that time. And and now if you go four to today i mean sonic identity is is everything because audios playing such a huge role in our lives. How much have you seen this industry. Sort of take hold and you've led a lot of this. I mean you. Pioneer this industry in many ways starting eighteen years ago. How's it evolved in in the last eighteen years and do you feel like brands are starting to really understand. You know why you founded on your brain and your core mission. Well i just felt that there was a were about maybe six companies at that time. The twenty five years ago twenty six years ago. That were doing sonic branding intentional audio and it was funny because i found an article Cleaning my office and it was written in nineteen ninety eight and it's everything that we're doing now. It's more than your logo. It's more than you're jingle. it's your call center. It's your voice and was fortunate to work with brands like ibm. Ma like microsoft that that got it that you really it. I had that. I think i can actually remember the tones From from that laptop and and so there were from the design management institute I felt it was really important for me to be there. Because i wanted to learn so i was the only one out with the owner of the company. I worked with at the time. That was doing sonic branding. We stood out. This was my audience. Ma'am and this is where. I got an introduction Ordinary me joe. Joe meet audrey He's running a branding conference. She does sonic branding That's where i met people at microsoft.

Teacher Conference Calls for Liberal Indoctrination of High School Students
"2016 right After Trump won the election, I was at a conference a teacher's conference in Boston and they were easily 1000 teachers from across the country and our keynote speaker. Got up and find an auditorium of at least 1000 teachers. And said it was our responsibility as high school teachers to make sure that we're turning our students into Democrat voters. We could not have another trump. What? I wait time out. Really? Yeah. Yeah, and everyone started applauding. I got up and left. Did anyone else get up and leave? Were you the only one? I definitely felt like I was in the minority. But I felt first of all unconscionable that we're supposed to be brainwashing our students on. Second of all, I feel like there's such a mentality. They're right and we're wrong that they see it. As you were saying how, Oh, journalists are not doing their job. Their job is to manipulate and they're turning their weaponizing teachers. They're weaponizing my profession. To brainwashing the youth because they think it's right. Do you think shows like today Audrey are helpful where we expose the tactics by which they do this because this and I just started this and I've been in podcasting for awhile and content production, but I'm determined with this show not to waste anybody's time. It's not good enough to say like, Hey, the media sucks. You know, I don't like teachers or whatever, you know, I love teachers. But teachers unions have been terrible. Do you think it's helpful to expose these kind of tactics so people can kind of be savvy to seeing them and pick them apart? I think it's

We're so where would you like your story to begin before. I jump into my story. I liked start by sharing. That i'm calling in from the stolen land of the coast salish peoples also known as the pacific northwest. And i say this to thank and honor those who have for thousands of years protected and cared for the land but now sustains me and also to draw attention to the reality that none of us were born into a culture of justice. Sometimes when i share my story there are parts. That might sound like sensational or shocking. But nothing in. My family's history is particularly surprising when you consider that i live in a country that was built on much worse stolen land and the stolen lives of enslaved people and for those most egregious things to have occurred. Violence in harm. Had to be normalized all kinds of ways throughout our culture so my story. I'm going to begin before i was born. There are a lot of people who came before me who shaped my life. But today i want to zoom in on my grandma audrey So audrey was sixteen in the early nineteen sixties. When she got pregnant she married my grandpa. Jimmy who was twenty six at the time. She gave birth to my uncle and then a year later when she was only seventeen. Gave birth to my dad. And i don't know what happened with audrey jimmy or where he was when one night. She went out partying with friends. She left her toddlers at home with her. Mom migrate grandma to babysit and she didn't come home right away when she was expected. how long her mom waited for her to come home but her mom called child protective services and they removed the boys and from what i can tell place them with a family for adoption right away
"audrey" Discussed on Life Transformation Radio
"And that's what I usually do in my break time. I think it's so important. Yep. Cleo lines is another perfect example. Rob of how you just know these things fit and they work and their practices that come into play. But I'm going to tell you once again, Rob is nailed science without even realizing that is completely supported by how our brain works that our brain is focused for these little amounts of energy and then the default mode Network sort of starts creeping in. I know it's just about him in the past that little funny monkey that pulls us off topic and suddenly we're off topic and we're off energy and we can be off focus. And if we don't have a practice and play for how to manage us half of your time can just you know, be evaporated into unproductive things because you know you're on for this time and now you're going to be off and you're going to go walk in the backyard. Your default mode network box has a little dangling banana that funny monkey has a dangling banana for its to be able to downtime reload but it's focused on the things I talk about Iraq. How you can take this built-in negative energy, this built-in lack of focus and turn around and make bait for your brain that this part of your brain does, like to think and wander off. And if you give your dreams part of the framework for the monkey, to sort of crawl on when you're bored or tired, or need down time because you've set up, oh, I want to have a show next month with Rob, you can use the sort of Bates for your brain. I know it sounds a little weird, but I'm going to tell you, you have to just wait going to be chapter 4, you don't load Network, so you go, trust them. She is, she is the she's got the science behind all this stuff and Audrey. I just want to thank you so much for being here today. It's funny because I don't get distracted. When I'm doing podcasts wage not get distracted when I'm doing certain things and like I'm all in my hyper focus and it just it's interesting like it seems I just looked at the at the timer.

"audrey" Discussed on Life Transformation Radio
"We don't teach it in our schools, we don't Empower people to hit their goals. We don't allow higher successes. We don't teach people how their own brain works even professionals. When you start talking about Psychology and Neuroscience, oh, maybe we shouldn't talk about psychology or Neuroscience cuz you know, it's psychology. I'm like it's the practice of how your brain works and you do have a brain, right? So you're entitled to know how your brain works, you'll be empowered and some of these, so simple little things will create tremendous results for you. So I got mad and I took parallel programs at Harvard Princeton Yale and pain. Very similar practices, but from the four, top thought leaders in the world, the people who sincerely write the Books, and it's funny. I almost wish that they all got just got together at home. Table. Because what they're saying, they could be saying to each other and they do have some sort of Entry dialogue, but it was so interesting to learn the hedonic psychology of how our brain works. Like, caveman mentality and then crossed it over into character, strengths that you learn from the father of positive psychology. And I'm like, you know what, folks, I condemn this down until I can Audrey nutshell. Like I had take away for us, people who are not scientists. And for those of us who were not psychologists here are some things people should know, people need to know this stuff. And so I wrote a book on the screen and I had this Jewel of information and I was just writing this book for me. Hello the dyslexic. Girl, who doesn't read? Why am I writing a book and who's going to read at PS? And where is it going to go? It's going to live on my shelf, right? It's going to live on my laptop. It's good. Living my phone now cuz they dictate into my phone. Hello! This is what you do when you're dyslexic and you want to write a book, it's just ideas. You want to write down, love it. But slowly, the ideas were, taking hold slowly..

It seems like you really do Vin and created, you know you you order all a cart. It just seems that that's what you did and you went with intensity and devoured that information, but the rest is stuff was kind of like Xs. And didn't let it affect you. The real takeaway was that we can learn. Oh well sounds very novel, right? The concept that oh we can learn but what we've told ourselves is that you can teach an old dog new tricks and oh you're a Luddite or you're not good at computers or I only went to Community College but I'm going to call BS to all of that and say that if you chose to disrupt yourself, it's easily done. It is easy to make that transformation in life. So, here's my hop-skip-and-jump. All right, I was like out of my mind, like, crying all night before, starting this class of phds, I had spent three or four months before hand really, really rolling up my sleeves. Learning math, hiring a tutor like linear regression. Okay, I could explain linear regression now the six year olds and which is just very useful algorithm and case of science. I love it. You're so science. It's like I don't know, it's so great job. Your mind is because you know it's funny someone heard a podcast we did you run the living a lot of actions show and they were they were listening to it and they said God Audrey's a lot like you all about actions would go? Yeah. And we're on the opposite ends of the spectrum of the way that our brain works, you are very analytical and and very scientific and I'm very free-flowing and very, you know, I just kind of organic and it's interesting how they meet and go together and it really beautiful way. Yes, yes. Yes. Like that is like my aha moment hearing your thoughts and I say hearing because I don't read your book..

Drummond a Better Addition to Lakers Than Rondo to Clippers
"We'll really both teams. Latest editions have paid off saturday. Andre drummond helped lead the lakers in an upset win over the nets. Thanks to his twenty points and eleven rebounds while yesterday rajon rondo dropped five ten points in the fourth quarter. Help the clippers close out the pistons in a comeback win so shannon waiting to think long and hard about this who is the better acquisition from in oregon out here. I think both gas were what the doctor ordered I think would rondo. Does he is allow. He allows paul george and kawhi not to worry about the ball handling situation especially late in the ball game so now they can do what they really good. At that score the basketball rondo will always get them into the right set. He will always do the right thing. Andre drummond is. This is just what the doctor ordered scale because he gives them. Something that the lakers didn't have the size and strength on the block. A guy that could score down there a guy that could rebound down there and a guy that can defend down there so for me. I'm going to say audrey draw. But although i believe rondo a great acquisition andre drummond is going to be the difference between the lakers winning and losing the title. Because i believe skips if you remember last year would they could do. Is that javagal. Into why they all they own for the most time they own the rebounding advantage. I believe this is going to be another situation that they're gonna get a lot of second chance opportunities because the look the other night i think andre drummond had offense rebounds that gives you another opportunity to possibly get. Am one adult or is going to be kicked out to a wide. Open three point shooter so for me. I'm gonna take andre drummond. 'cause i love and plus he three in august this year

"Of year that many of us pack our suitcases for a spring break trip, But things this year are still far from normal. There are crowds on beaches in Fort Lauderdale on a few other places, but overall travel numbers are still down. As NPR's David Schaper reports, Many are getting the summer travel bug. For many college students Spring break used to mean earning a couple of extra bees as it beaches and beer. But this year, many colleges and universities are canceling the annual week off and one that isn't the University of California. Davis is paying students 75 bucks to stay home or on campus. Many family trips to resorts and theme parks are also being put on hold as a new survey on behalf of the reeling travel industry shows disappointingly only 12% of respondents said they're planning travel for spring break. Roger Dow heads the U. S Travel Association, which commissioned the poll. What is a little more concerning to May is just last week. That was 16%. So it's down from last week. When we were thinking everything was starting to go in the right direction, Tao says. Recent bad news about new Corona virus variants appears to be cooling. A mini industry warm up is more people have been traveling. The T S A says the number of people passing through airport security checkpoints tops one million more often than not these days, but that's still less than half of pre pandemic levels. Hotel occupancy rates are also creeping back up. But the travel industry continues to take a beating now, says nearly 40% of all U. S jobs lost due to the pandemic are in leisure and hospitality. U. S economy just can't recover unless the travel industry is healthy and recovery and travel won't fully recover until the pandemic is under control. What many Americans appear to feel that day is coming. And their online travel searches show they're itching to hit the road. What we're beginning to see in the beginning of 2021 is a recovery from the deepest part of that depression and demand. Haley Berg is an economist with the airfare and hotel price tracking APP Hopper and she says searches for flights are up substantially across the board. Demand for domestic travel since January is up, 58%. International travel is up about 20% and those numbers are growing faster and faster each week, Berg says. TRAVEL SEARCH activity surges in sync with new cycles, For example, when President Biden last week promised enough vaccines for every American adult by the end of May Travel searches skyrocketed. We're fully anticipating a big surge in demand late spring and through summer, there is clear pencil demand for travel. Audrey Hendley heads American Express Travel, which released a report this week on global consumer travel sentiment. And she says many people are not just searching. They're ready to book even if they knew they have to cancel their trip in the future, And we're calling that shift. That book now figure it out later mentality. That's the result of airlines and hotels, offering more flexible changin cancelation policies as it's still unclear when some countries may reopen their borders and lift travel restrictions. And even though more people are getting vaccinated every day, the CDC still urges Americans not to take any nonessential trips. But even with so much uncertainty about the future of travel, Hendley says, many people find being bitten by the travel bog and planning. A vacation is good for the pandemic weary soul. David

Justice Dept Drops Lawsuit Claiming Yale Discriminated in Admissions
"Talking to Audrey Anderson, who had the higher education practice of Bass, Berry and Simms about President Joe Biden's Johnson's Department dropping and Trump Administration lawsuit accusing Yale University of discriminating against whites and Asian Americans while favoring black and Hispanic applicants for admission. Move marks a swift shift in priorities for Biden's Justice Department, signaling its abandonment of the previous administration's efforts to reverse college diversity efforts. But the battle over race conscious admissions is far from over. After losing a similar Harvard case over discrimination in November, students were fair admission, said it would ask the U. S. Supreme Court to reverse the ruling and toss out decades of president. High court, which now has a 6 to 3 Conservative majority has yet to say if it will take up the appeal. The group has similar cases pending against the University of Texas and the University of North Carolina, alleging discrimination against Asian, American and white students and says it will file another lawsuit against Yale. Tell us what the strategy of students for fair admissions is what it's lawsuits across the country. Your students for fair admission. Will they bring cases? Challenging You'd admissions plans that have race as a factor. In admissions and say that those plans discriminate on the basis of race. Their plainness lately have been all Asian American. Do them. They say that when colleges consider race in admissions and the discriminated against Asians based on waste, that's what their complaints say they always in all of their cases. They have also Included a claim that Any consideration of race violates the Constitution. Even though that argument is We're closed by current law. The current Supreme Court lost, says the colleges may consider race An admission. If they show they other compelling interest in considering race that their use of races narrowly tailored Students repair admissions always make an argument that hey, we think that's wrong. We think the Supreme Court Current case law is wrong, and if we ever get a chance to argue this before the Supreme Court, we're going to tell the Supreme Court that we think that's wrong and they should overturn that law. So it seems prepared missions is where was doing by filing cases all across the country. They are trying to improve their chances that the Supreme Court Will at some point Decide to read you one of these lower court decisions and eventually rule. And prepared missions favor on that. Argument that the Constitution does not allow the consideration of race. And higher education admissions. So we know that the Harvard case went up to the circuit court, and that's as we discussed awaiting perhaps Supreme Court review. What about the other cases that they filed? Yeah. So the University of North Carolina, they filed a case against the University of North Carolina. They had a trial in that case in November. And, um, the Mr Court is waiting for the parties to file finding the facts and conclusions of law. Later this month. And so we are then awaiting a written decision from the judge in that case, and that's just the district court. The trial level. So it could be anywhere from You know 3 to 6 months. No longer before we get a decision. In that case from the trial court. You know what's happening with the Texas case? I believe. Yeah, So there's a case pending in Texas. And they're really at the very early stages of that case. I just checked and they Have a scheduling order that was just entered that has trial scheduled for September of 2022. It was gonna be a long time before there's any decision in that case on the merits. The strange thing about that case is that they're gonna be doing some briefing in the next few months. On some legal questions about whether the court should go forward with this decision at all, based on the fact that just a few years ago Of course, including the Supreme Court. Revered the admission process at the University of Texas Austin and found it to be constitutional. They're going to do some breaking the next few months about Hey, as if afraid. You get to litigate this all again now. Or have we already decided that so the case might go away on those grounds within the next, you know, six months. But if that doesn't happen, then it will be a long time before we get a decision in that case, so

I think someone recently got shot and killed by police something. In america it started out by refusing to wear a mask and ended up in some police chase and all much of that going around these days. I feel like i personally have lost track. Which is a sad. It's pretty bad it's pretty good. It's a lot it's pretty bad. So what yes. Oh really It'd probably realistically it's going to be six months Hopefully six hundred of if not session like normal doing some online stuff thinking about. What's next eight knowing this really resonates with someone who listening. You're you're online. People can find you. Add yet i have. I have tried to transition online. But and it's gonna probably sound funny. Some of what i do and enjoy about. My work is actually physical. Even though we've talked about that the second logical aspect of it a lot. I just find a lot of what people typically expect from an online experience is not the kind of stuff that i do and i've found that the stuff i've enjoyed doing online has been around Education mentoring social kind of things. Want to talk about you. Know people want to talk about The king so they fetishes Show where i sit on the things they enjoy just curious about talking to a pro domme If the a woman who who's interested in going into that field of had a couple of conversations with people interesting interested in transitioning into being a dominatrix. And i'm really enjoying that part of it. Yeah the online session not so much but it depends how long this goes on a full moon arts. I mean a couple of friends. And i we have the a seven days of da-ming series To have like different dems on to do little like half hour teaching slot so we should definitely connect on kale us. Show absolutely actually watching ultimately. That's yes absolutely i really. I really enjoyed the teaching sharing aspect. And as i moved further along in my career. It's come a little bit more present. So hopefully that's something that will develop over time hossam okay reach alpha for mentor shipped. We have a lot of budding pro. Dons and what curious folk that listen to this auditor. Wrap up. I'm curious with as much as you thought about death. Have you given serious. Thought as to how you would. Ideally like to go right now Oh yeah no. Because you would think that i have i would assume maybe the i would and i have to an extent but not really proactively. You know. I think about things like i. I don't wanna traditional funeral. That's fairly simple. I'd like to die of old age in my sleep. Probably not unexpected. And that's probably as far as gone long as far as gone. Probably wrap my buddy up in a shroud. And i'm not even sure about cremation versus natural burial. So it's still up in the aftermath here. Okay that's still up in the air. Yeah do you know. Go back and forth okay. Good teeter totter. Look i think in your in your sleep in old age is the ideal for forever. Like i mean unless you wanted to go out in like a rock and roll way. Well i have. Because i don't want to be old old for most of my life so it's but i think that i mean i think that's a shitty attitude that you have when you're young but that hopefully bells out a bit as you're older. It's a hard. It's a hard crossed bear as you get older. If you can't can't tamp down so i kind of realized it's now a lot of specifically like the men in my life between like my partner. My best friend like everyone either had like a desk scare when they really twenty five or just thought they wouldn't make it past that. Yeah well and i think i think there is a thing like as young men and just like growing up in art and culture. You you really idolize these people that are live in fast and lose and you're like why do i want to. Why do i want to be that you know. It's better to burn out than fade away and all this bullshit yourself that i just really would love to start speaking against moore as an adult because it just it you know. I don't know yeah.

"Yes it is. I was GONNA say how could this not be? A lifetime movie for a long I was not a Hollywood movie. I don't know the worry. You can't make that up. You can't. You can't make this up i. saw this as A. So I, saw this as a lifetime movie years ago it was called like wife mother murderer course it was of course something like that but it started judith light. Do you know her? Yes, she was in What's that called family ties now the boss the boss Okay so she became a lifetime against by the way I love her and she's great she was so. Good in this role, the move story she played Marie it was really it was really a good movie. I have to say it was a really good depiction of her and I, remember being shocked by this. But since such time there was a book and there've been some articles but this is not a case that is like Stacey Castro level and maybe it's because it was so far back I was gonna say it was so long ago if it was modern day would be yeah. If it was modern day, it certainly would be so at fifty four. Because the woman who found her also described you know this she knew who Audrey Murray Hill was I guess and said that this woman it was so sad she was cold. She was dirty. She was everything that Marie Hilley in life you know didn't want to be I feel bad for John. I gotTa feel terrible for John I feel worse for the victims obviously have franken possibly Lucille but poor John I. Know that was a sad ending. He's a good guy. So okay. Our opinion here at the end I mean this is not so controversial but let me just say a couple of things first of all Marie Hilley. A serial killer so I would use or an attempted serial killer. Use Her case in women and Crime, and my serial killer class, and when I classify serial killers I, usually talk about the type. So Marie was what I would consider a classic Prophet serial killer. She really didn't enjoy the act, but saw it as a utility I think. Maria. Was PSYCHOPATHIC. I think she had all the traits of psychopathy. But when we look at the difference between males and females, male serial killers tend to perform the act for hedonistic purposes either there's a sexual pleasure or there's a power. Control domination sometimes, their mission oriented they're trying to get rid the world of certain classes of people but very infrequently are male prophet serial killers unless you're talking about like the ICEMAN. So Maria is a classic in that way that she's a profit serial killer. Also, what we know about women is that they poison historically women poison because of their roles in the home and when they went out in the workplace, they were often healthcare workers or nurses. So they had access to poison. So this also makes her pretty typical. As much anymore with arsenic, it's still does but this is a way that women poisoned to that..

"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..

I didn't mind getting my hands dirty and to be honest because differentiated myself and because I had my own strengths, I felt that I was very respected by male colleagues. It's a great answer Mecca. Okay. Well, thank you so much in for that question, we also have elise L. from Portland have. You, been to Portland I. Love Portland is one of my favorite cities. My thoughts are with everyone in Portland right now I know there's a lot of civil unrest, but Portland is an amazing place right Lastly, who else do we have today? We have Malani from Los Angeles. Malani. Might be my favorite name of all our patrons. I know offensive the other patrons then either but I was thinking the same thing. So Malani had a really interesting question Malani s why do you think offenders likes in Toya? Brown and Crystal Kaiser or not seen as victims of human trafficking despite The evidence I know in both cases, there was theft of property and that was used against him in court. Well I. Think the simple unfortunate answer is that sex workers, minority women particularly those who are lower class they are criminalized. So luckily, views are changing and our society does view sex workers as victims particularly minors right when we talked about some Toya, Brown nobody was talking about the fact that Cynthia? Brown was a sex worker. She was also a minor in court. No one was recognizing the fact that she's a victim she was a child who was being trafficked by her pimp. So I think it's important that these cases come to light and I think there's a lot of support for people like sin toy and crystal yeah. In Teaching Women in crime also happened is that we treated victims of trafficking even like prostitutes until very recently to be honest and I want to say these views are in our treatment of these women only started changing in the last twenty years. So I think historically, we treated women this way and I think as amy said it well, I think the effect is more pronounced in women who are lower class and minorities. and. Thank you very much. For that question I hope to cover crystals K. sometime soon, scrape thank you to all of our patrons. Appreciate it very much said today we're digging into the Audrey Marie Hillary before there was stacey castor there was Audrey Marie Hilley though obviously I've already given away that there are Moore. There's a murderer and there are other crimes have you heard of her? Okay well, I think you're gonNA find this one very interesting.

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..
