"The bread aisle of your local grocery store. I mean that's just of how. I'm seeing it how i'm feeling. I think there's a lot that you hit on. So i just want to build upon that. I think it's i rebuke those who say. Jj can't be an mvp candidate because she missed too many games go by your tired. I rebuke those who say that. Tina charles can't be mvp because she's playing for a team that is barely in the playoffs. Lemme riddle me this. Okay if you put tina charles on the seattle storm and she's putting up the same numbers as she. She's went up for washington if her numbers are the best in the league thus therefore argo henceforth. They would be the best on any wnba team that she played on. And you wanna tell me. She's not an mvp candidate debt. Goodbye your week. yes i i. Can't that being said if you mix together everything that i believe people believe the mvp to be best player best team earn not auntie style but okay was some people say okay most valuable to their individual team check that box. Asia wilson most valuable to the wmba. Come on come on. Come on here we go. What are we talking about. What are we even. What is the argument. What are we talking about in my opinion. Tina if you look at the full package in the way that you look at it for asia tina's gonna get demerits for things that ah basketball player shouldn't be getting demerits for because as i can attest to tina eight always you know. She's not warm with the media. Always not always but that is not a part of her job but it's not a part of the criteria for mvp personal opinion. Does it make it easier to vote for someone when they're like. Oh great question yes. Of course it does. But you know what i'm not i'm not vote. For dina if i get a chance because tina's ballin out and i also have residual feelings from when tina charles did not win. Mvp in two thousand and sixteen. No like stop listen lake. I like people who know me know. I will say this until kingdom come. I felt tina gusts lighted 2016. Sixteen had a great season. But how are you the best player in the entire league week after week after week month after month after month and then all of a sudden you're not good enough to win the mvp. I just don't understand. I don't understand To expand on what those queens just said asia wills and could do no wrong in my eyes Since last season I've been saying she's that chick Don staley and her program have shined through this olympics. I'm happy for that. Give us this freaking signature shoe nike. I know that. I know there's those your people but hear me out about this. I need the shoe.

"What i always have to say. But i sound buys some like that's right. I didn't pay her to say that she. She added fair to say that. I'm rockin on rockin with them. I like that squad. I'd love to see like taken is out of the equation. Some of those people are on their loved to cease. Ludi get there. I'd love to say some people who who've been put in the time and put in the work that's been a lot unrecognized for a lot of their career so i'm rockin with them to jasmine. Did you want to add anything else about dallas all right so we talked about. Our teams are favorites. Whatever we talked about what. I don't know for saying our facebook favorites to win. I wanna talk a little bit of these top performers this season. Mvp candidate surprise performances. Maybe even from some I mean i would say tina charles per one had some down years and suddenly as back to a top three player in the league right now. Top three score top five score. I don't know where she's out exactly. John jones whose game needs more needs. More love. jonquil needs more spotlight You know they recently were saying how katie admires her game. 'cause way she plays and yeah. Her game is fun to watch. I think she's one we should talk about. I would love to talk about asia wilson because once again we're seeing the mvp running back and she's running back right now. The olympics I'm a passenger torika. She's got something to say. How does this guy know well. It's only a podcast. No i i am on board with those that you named and what i find interesting in this conversation as we kind of you know barely discussed before we recorded. This pot was suggest. It's interesting when you think of mvp candidates right like some of us have our own criteria when we think of what makes an mvp. Is that the person that is most valuable to their team. Specifically is that the person that has stood above and beyond other players in the league league wide you know. Is it a person where you know you even have those qualifications of. If i were to take this player off this team with this team be any good. So everyone has their own general idea of what they determined to be their mvp. And i think the problem that comes with that is that you can probably find a navy. Vp on every team. Because this league is just so good and you can probably pick one person off every team. And i don't mean mvp league why. But that's kind of where i come from when i pick the the is that my criteria of who is performing above and beyond league-wide versus. Who is doing more for their team. Because i just think that there's so many different people who are doing some amazing things for their team. Who look at tina charles and you think if washington is not an eight seed say washington is a four seed or three see. Tina is definitely leading the conversation for. Mvp you we talk about john jones. Who absolutely should be in this conversation. And then that goes to the criteria in my opinion of if you take this person off the team how well they perform where we saw that jonquil missed a few games due to european team obligations and connecticut didn't perform at their best And then you think of you know who has completely changed the game. I think of an iso lamey. When i went from most improved player to absolutely team. And i think when we talk about eric mentioned earlier that the liberty is kind of over achieving. that's one of the reason why because of her performance asia asia asia. Right like. what does she do well. Now outside of you know she's consisted. You can expect the same kind of performance the same kind of play from asia. Gay man gay. It doesn't matter in what realm. She's playing because we're seeing her. Do this in the olympics. Like your rookie. Your dishes your debut and where people talk about pressure and how difficult it is to perform at this level with this meaning is when you asia comes out here dropping twenty this. She comes out here drop in nineteen. She's my god. Do this right so there's just so many different caliber of players that we can place in this. Mvp conversation that i think is difficult even still with us being halfway through the season to decide who is that number one and we haven't even mentioned seattle right in terms of their still we. There's jewel like we haven't even mentioned you know the the amount of just the amount of stellar performances that we've kind of seen across the top teams in this league. And i don't know if we're going to be able to select a true. Mvp until probably near the into the season bet online is the fastest and easiest way to bet on all your sports action. We know that baseball is in full. Swing national hockey league is wrapping up free agency getting ready for training camp. You've got the nfl nba. We just got off of the olympics. you can find.

Welcome to the show. How are you. i'm fine. Thank you get to be here. Thanks super excited that you're here. We'll just introduced you. Tell us a little bit more about yourself. How did you find yourself falling in love with essential oils. Well i have a very unique story. So i've been using essential oils. My whole life As a child my mom was dedicated to use implants as integral part of our wellness regimen and so essential oils. Were part of that and growing up. I thought everybody uses essential oils. But that was that the case and My mom's best friend who i affectionately. Call auntie she's the one that really helped me to see like which plants are best us to stay healthy and and i know growing up. We had all these. Little cars of says and bombs saw these like homemade concoctions made from plants. And and you know what. I've along the way now i will say that As a like a young person you know kind of took it for granted. Because i thought this is something that everybody is. I didn't really see how great of a of a i guess like an educational history ahead So it was. You know kind of like ebb and flow with my usage. But then as i got older i realized you know consistency is key and and then i also realize that i had a treasure in the education that i received and so i've you know for the last ten years you know i've taught classes in my local community All of that to say but my original goal has stayed the same
When to Pass Up an Edge
"Strategy question comes to us from e. n. and i'm actually going to paraphrase a little bit because he asked about it in the context of a specific hand but i think that the specific hand is is not terribly important but question was just kind of about when to pass up an edge in tournaments You know the idea. If this is a soft field you can come. Continue to accumulate shifts. Maybe without getting all in or without taking a big risk of elimination. And how should you make these decisions of Essentially valuing your tournament life to say even though this might be plus chippy play How should i think about. Maybe it's not worth the risk. And i can find better plus. Tbb plays by folding now and trying to continue to play later so basically we said is. Is there a way to gauge your edge to justify folding in spy where you're tournament life is on the line i would say the short answer is yes. I have a video series on tournament poker edge which gets to this a little bit. It's called getting off on the right foot. It's about thinking in terms of ev when you're playing tournaments as opposed to Thinking in terms of dislike you know winning the tournament or something like that get into the topic of a little bit there but you know basically you can measure your win rate in a tournament the same way that you can in a cash game. We're trying to estimate it the same way. So i think most people are familiar with this idea of big blinds per hundred a win rate and cash game players certainly are familiar with it in tournaments big blinds. One hundred is not the only thing we care about because you know there are things like icm and stuff like that. But essentially big blinds per hundred is a measure of like for every hundred hands that you play. How many big blinds do you win on average. And that's a more than useful studying cash games because the situations are more similar to each other. Like you know if you play. Fifty thousand hands of online cash. No limit holdem. Those fifty thousand hands are like. There fairly often played with similar stack sizes. They played with similar number players at the table. they're not usually played with Aunties often they played against a field of of many he might play with the same person thousands of times over the course of those fifty thousand hands so they are a little bit more comparable to each other even so like if you have a big enough sample size of tournaments you can start to get a sense of. What is your win rate. Look like in tournaments. I will say. I mean you can at least get a sense of like what are the. What are the bounds. Like what kinds of win rates are are reasonable. And i think this is where this is really what we're interested in anyway. I think one thing that happens a lot in tournaments is people get into spots and rather than trying to figure out the actual. Ev of leeann like they're facing they raise and then somebody jams on them and like rather than trying to actually figure out the call. They'll i think it's frankly it's kind of a lazy approach. They'll just kind of shrug and be like well. I don't want to risk it. I can accumulate chips more. Like i have an edge. I don't wanna risking eliminate. I'm just gonna fold this. I i think it's i it's worth figuring out like. How much would it be worth to you to call. You should know how to do that. And i definitely. I talked about how to do that in that getting off on the right foot series but basically it's just a matter of looking at your pods compared to how much you need to call and assessing your equity versus the opponents range so i think i you need to put a number on. What is it worse to me to call and something to understand. Is that even calls. That might not seem like they're worth very much like maybe you're facing twenty five big blind shove and calling only has an ebay of like plus half a big blind. So why am. I going to risk twenty-five big blinds to try to win half the big blind winning half a big blind in a single hand translates to fifty big blinds per one hundred hands played a win rate of fifty big blinds per hundred dutton astronomical enraged. If you could actually win half a big blind every single hand that you played you would be the greatest poker player in the

I was kinda trying to find my voice. And i think around At that time we didn't really have like that diverse You know push for more diverse city. And so i was writing. I didn't think that you know publishing. Would once stories from people like me. And so for the longest time i was just kinda writing occasion characters and stuff like that. So i'm very grateful for all the authors who you-know-who kind of paved. The way for us

Emc you didn't get actually mentioned like you didn't sell me with the movie. I'm not always said if you promote. I have no problem but you have to pay me and it's a business. So why would you oughta meanness favor. No is business where you're talking about. She can't feed her kids favorites. Negative for your tom. Exactly 'cause you wouldn't you. Wouldn't you know how know you would've won. You didn't let him even show her any any Financial support is you'd eat even give it at ten. Ten percent usually sue ten percent of only show. That is supposed to have you for me. So i'm just very curious. What does it mean to be black balled. And why does that happen. Like what are the guidelines. Today is the same thing on the whole gatekeeper thing. Yeah i see what you mean is hard to play a game. When you don't set the rules or union create that platform that's why sliding how i say like I was watching video and crypto. The best way to win and make mad. Money is to hold onto what you got and just keep investing into it instead of hopping on one thing to another. If you believe in some you hold on a long grind but it's like the most success. So i'm bringing that up in its equivalent to y'all you better off having your own platform when you have your own platform. Yeah it's gonna take a long time to build but it's gonna take a long time it to crash in a sense of you built the name so much that now people a come to you example tyler. Perry facts flaxseeds. He did do this. Indigo the funding as do several as like. We don't know all of the story because even tyler she's like danisme try me. Okay do okay for example okay As like imagine you've got my back and we been good for years even my my boy. You you basically found in edison. Yeah pretty much. You know what i'm saying yoyo. I'm speaking to you telling me hey. Look you're right behind going about this. Of course you when it comes down to actually speak off me you fade into the background. What i'm saying if events background but why then somebody controlling him. He got a bus. How you have a boss when you got your own studio. That's my thing. This is what i'm saying. What are the guy who's running ship or because if you if you ask me your horizons country some people like all the government. Just a bank. Bo runs the bank as i. This is to them saying If we bring out obama blow the rothschilds and that. But i'm pretty sure it's not just one family in learn running his whole world world but Yeah man says is a. That's why i want to own a coup. Like who says job in hollywood and in everybody jumps Zander is is the whole going battle I don't know what podcast episode that was but default first-person mover is the people that started hollywood. Pass it on or somebody who just worked their way up and then built the name. You gotta do certain things to make things happen. That's why hollywood won't have the same power as it used to. Because everybody's i you know. I could do this on my own. I could go to georgia. Texas florida and ninety all these taxes and create my own platform because just as much as the people who create a tight of it the consumer is tied to how many guys movies you're gonna watch her. It's annoying you know you know an account remind me off buddy buddy. Pine at the knows his name. There was that From the incredible the syndrome syndrome of guys name.

But they get the delay non-nego log on suffer may pay back on his. I feel like we as human beings. We can be better to each other bro. Like usually fucked up this woman's lab like i would. I haven't seen in a minute. i'm thinking this is. This happened because the netflix thing was like no the netflix thing happened because of her being blackballed because she didn't want to promote Precious after she's been promoting it when she was on contract and then you sold it. I tell her nothing and is expected to do the job. I was thinking this. Maybe if she knew how to work social media would she have been media now. She'll like one point seven million out if she knew how to work social meal. Maybe would have been better protecting the. She is working social media because she got us to talk about it and this was usable so the thing nobody wants to interview your immoral people who like a few people to interview her when she chinatown store.

"That they're going to do that. So i just opted for this week lays dip and yeah after they realize what you were doing. I just saw that i was. I think they just saw a big fat guy and we're like we wanna make him go away so just a piece in cashier had understood. I wish there was a way. I could have telegraphed. Like i'm trying to taste everything on your menu and you won't let me this system. You have going on like no. I don't wanna combo. I want you try everything. Can you make it happen for me. You know and then i yeah. I should've asked to talk to the manager. The combos aren't great because the combos come with just a soft drink when they should come with the lemonade because the lemonades the whole thing they have there like you can pay extra to upgrade to a lemonade. But it's just. I don't know they should have. They should have a lemonade. Eliminate combo there. That's that's my special drink is the best they're big. That's drink but i will say that this week dip was way too sweet sweet. It was just like you know it was just. It was just liquid sugar and it was. It was too much. And then the but the cinnamon sugar pretzel nuggets word delightful and i had to cut myself off. I had to exact same move. Crumple up the bag in and throw the baggage mall trash cans. I didn't need any more of them. Mitch you also got some cinnamon sugar pretzel in some form. I did yes. I got the cinnamon sugar. Pretzel pretzel nuggets. Which i wanted to get nuggets in some form. But i was sad to get the nuggets for the cinnamon and sugar. Because i like the cinnamon. Sugar pretzel i know but i was like. Let's just try. The nuggets in the nuggets were good. They're great. they may be have been my favorite. If not for for something that. I'll say coming up boy so i'll go. I'll go over sweet. And then i got so. Oh my sweet stuff. And then there's a two more things that are savory. But they're different from the other savory. So i got a lot of stuff so cinnamon sugar pretzels dipping them in the in that sweet glaze and the caramel. I like the caramel way more. That was my favorite sweet dipping sauces. And then i also got actually for for sweet stuff it was. I got a frozen lemonade. Mixer. a strawberry. I'm sorry peach frozen lemonade mixer. Which is they're special one for the summer. And i gotta tell you that was good. Both of both of the drinks. I got were very sweet but the peach was the better one and then i got a strawberry lemonade mixer. So that's not frozen so the peach frozen. Strawberry one was just lemonade. Both good the strawberry one is just so sweet. It was like insanely sweet. The peach one this frozen pizza. Pardon me nice. Little summer treat wags still very sweet. But not as sweet as the other one is like neon red basically. Yeah i had the same issue. I got the you know i got the blue raspberry lemonade grass recommendation. They were like the regulars the big the big seller. But i like the blue raspberry tried same thing it was just like neon blue and it was like wiper fluid blue and then it was just so i like blue as a flavor but it was just so intensely sweet. It was just too much. i couldn't finish it. I wish i gotten the peach one because there's a peach one. Ooh that looks good. But i'll go with you know whatever i didn't want to get more than one drink. Still very very sweet wags. I'll say that it was. It's insanity sweep but it's not bad. It hit the spot. The the the strawberry lemonade one was just. It's just so artificially faked that. I'm like shouldn't audience lemonade. Be good and i wish i. I wish i got a regular lemonade to see how the regular one is. But also when i was coming into the mall and leaving there was a woman who was coming out while i was coming in and she had like a. I think it was a strawberry lemonade. Like there are people were getting lemonades left and right while i was there there were ton of people. Just getting fans this tuesday afternoon. It's a tuesday afternoon at the mall. You know like. I guess some schools are out. It's may twenty fifth on the day. We're recording this. But can i say something that. I at least know where my story was going to start or stop but i need to say that when i was at the mall it was kind of emotional for me because i dropped my son off with his friends at gamal for a long time and like that girls there. Why how when. I went to the auntie ann's where located in that mall was right across from the play station. The earth the play area. That i took that he was at as baby. All my god. Yes thank goodness it. It was a jam packed the experience of so there is that a lot going on but the experience of going in the mall. I don't care for And then i had one more thing to say. Just jumping in there. When you mentioned. Should they make lemonade. Good they should. That should carry over with the idea of a handcrafted. You want it to feel like we made this pretzel for you. And then we're just gonna have these legs slushy way. Too sweet blue drinks. Yam make like a good lemonade to go with. My handcrafted pretzel fully agree. I say for me. It was kind of emotional too because i thought back to the time my mom i dropped me off at the mall and i went to that. Auntie ann's i met no girls i wasn't there were friends. I just went to the fans that had us some pretzels. But you know there was one thing. I was surprised by the lemonades again. Yes to sweet. The peach one's okay. But what. I was surprised by wykes was my last sweet treat. Which was the sweet almond pretzel. And that gets my by to the night. That's sweet almond presses. Great and that wasn't even an option at my sweet almond. Pretzel was fantastic. It's it's diplomat in the caramel sauce. It's like a. it's a really good pretzel. it's not should've gotten it and it's not super pretzels. Self is not super sweet and then when you get a little bit of the carolina. It's it's fantastic if no one's ever had that sweet almond pretzel. That's that's the way to go. I think.

Indigenous Fashion: The Politics of Ribbon Skirts, Runways and Resilience
"Abigail echo hawk is here to talk about a ribbon. Dress a traditional symbol of healing. But it's not a typical ribbon dress. She's the chief research officer at seattle indian health board and the director of the urban indian health institute in march of twenty twenty in the early days of the pandemic. She reached out to her federal health partners to ask for some more p. p. e. so the institute could continue to serve the native population in the seattle area instead of receiving masks and testing kits. She was sent bodybags abigail ponti and joins me now. Welcome to the show abigail and so excited to be here. Can you take take me back to that moment. When you opened up the box with the body bags and what happened we had gotten noticed at a large box had arrived at our clinic. We ran downstairs. We hoping for mask and when we opened it up what we saw instead was a box of bodybags. It was absolutely devastating. I remember taking one of the body bags out of the box. In the toe tags fell out of the bag and instantly there were tears in my eyes. Because all i could think about was the elders. I had seen upstairs. Wanting to get tested of our providers were showing their own mass of our executive leadership team. Who had started washing the scrubs of our providers at our own homes in order to ensure that they had what they needed. And when we asked for help bodybags is what we got. What did you think about when you saw what your federal health partners had sent you. When i saw what they had sent us. I wish i had been more surprised. Unfortunately i wasn't as we look at. How the federal government in the united states has provided the treaty obligations for american indians alaska. Natives we know they haven't and in fact they have never fully funded our healthcare systems and as a result of that we've seen our people have high rates of disease. We've seen our people die. And when i thought about it it was almost the perfect metaphor for what the federal government has been doing to us for centuries and that is giving us the thanks to bury our people in and not giving us the resources so are can live. When did you get the idea to transform the body bag into a rib andress. I've been working in healthcare for really long time and it's hard i have seen people die. I've seen are people not receive the resources that they need. And sometimes i'll drive home from my work and just cry all the way home and so i've had to find ways of coping with the trauma that i experience as an indigenous person working native healthcare. And so. I use the cultural traditions. That i have been taught by my aunties my relatives by my
"auntie" Discussed on Think 100%: The Coolest Show
"Shit Oil from all points wherever asia california to the islands to burn about eighty percent of the electric. They're completely on imported oil as our other small island nations pacific island countries throughout the world in oceanic. And so that's a that's a power that that's fascinating i guess. And then what about the clean energy. 'cause i know anti-poverty goes both ways right because you could be around a few industry aspects of that But then you could also be around the clean energy from renewables and still be instill be impoverished energy wise. And that's the case in hawaii or or other you you've encountered. This is a very important issue. That is is and will continue to be true. I think in most places. When i think about energy justice one of the things i like to say that to get out of this planet crisis it is about borba just ghg. Emissions adopt sean. It is about more than that. It's not you know it. The we need we need emissions reductions. But it needs to be done in a way. That's fair and that's not only because it's wrong to discriminate against people end. You know farm their lives using energy or other infrastructure. All of astro. How are we going to get to mass adoption unless we're engaging people engaging communities in these new technologies changing the trajectory of our infrastructure to be cleaning and cleaning up and addressing past farms. Instead of actually dudley down and naked worse so in particular in hawaii. We have a rural indigenous native hawaiian and polynesian community. That is being faced with a a some of the largest industrial turbines wind turbines anywhere. That are up anywhere in the world. There's not a single place in world. Where turbine this big is close to residential population. As is here. It's the same clean energy company that owns the coal plants on hawaii clean. Energy companies are more and more becoming as big and powerful as fossil fuel only companies and fossil fuel companies are doing more and more green energy. So it's incredibly work to see that we have have to have more. Ghg reductions and that this needs to be done in adjusted bear way because if they're taking indigenous lan put up a solar farm ben which is happening all over. Well that's cute as crazy known so not i- mazing you bring that up because i think people don't know that side of story the only even prime movement we fight only on we fight one way said okay. Hey energy poverty Is going to be you know. They were fossil fuel industry. But we don't deal with the other side of that and having those communities who live so close to it. And i loved earlier too about how you talked about. How people who are from four communities are literally spending sometimes so much money on their energy sources Which leads to remember to justice and energy burden. Because when i think about that i was thinking about that. Sixty eight percent of black people live within thirty miles of a co fire. Power plant i think about the fact that if you're what you're saying means that these black people a not only getting from toxins getting cast cancer asthma and emphysema but then they're also paying more for the energy sources that delivering next to that's killing them. that's crazy. I am so so talk about justice. And how the energy burden and how that plays out in cities that is an just. That's just an incredible incredibly important question. And it's just true that the also fuel companies have basically financed their profits off the health and wellbeing of Of black people and others. We've seen it. In the you. In the kobe covid crisis. It's terrible disparate impacts of it and we know that carter that disparate impact. Stay in new. York city is the host of co morbidity with asthma and the proximity to the power plants being woman that makes us more vulnerable. So yes we pay new york the second highest second or third highest energy prices in the country and yet this is about new york. New york has very high emissions in terms of what we contribute to picture in the united states you have some of the lowest per capita emissions in the country. Why because we have so many people who income and sports so this is this is what we're talking about wrong justice contributing the least attributing the least and taking an experiencing the worst so so in why you have the highest prices. You have the Low income people living together many people together in a packed house painting enormous amount of their and this is a place where there's no z's paying for this imported oil that is killing us killing them and by the way sinking Saying in hawaiian native wyan sahil Literally sinking your in lansing about that. And so it's no surprise that in in white that return by ingrid two hundred people got arrested At a massive direct action on that the half right. You're more industrial. Lands are literally sinking. You are paying out. The nose can't even afford lag though this this this tapping is global. It's it is a it is. It's not cool. That's why we're here this month while you here on the kulu show with the climate auntie so speaking about that That actually leads me to than you know. I mentioned earlier about demonstration without litigation leads to frustration. But i want to add in their demonstration without legislation also leads to frustration And we know either you say policy or policy will definitely shape you. So why should our communities Care about climate change policy in pacific for you. I know you're trying to do. Not only why is should kid answer that question. But then i know you're using things like tick tock and things to to communicate that and i want you. I mean. I want you to talk about that as well. How will using storytelling an art and social media to.

So going from performing every week to now, having to step off the stage, Sean had to look to other outlets for his comedy. And one of those outlets strangely, and he'll tell you the story was writing his aunt's eulogy. I got to talk to Shawn cut hand. From Saskatoon. Hey, Sean, How are you? Hey, I'm pretty good. How are you? Good. How is this catch one tonight. Today has the house Saskatoon today. We're finally sitting above zero. So we're doing good. Yeah, you could take off the winter coat. Thank God. Hey. Yeah. Finally s o. I want to get an idea of how things were for you before Cove it last year. What was work like for you back then, just before covert. Um I actually went to Ottawa to be a talent associate further inspire words. And that was just just before things started getting like backstage at that award show. We're kind of getting in mumblings of like, Oh, we better not be hugging everyone. And then that finished and I came home to Saskatoon and the next week. That was gonna work down backstage after Juno's and it went from going backstage there the first day too. Don't touch anyone. Hand shakes aren't allowed no hugging. And then we did our first day of orientation. And then the next day, the Juno's were just canceled. I remember I was there, I would do you remember that day we all woke up thinking that the Jew knows we're gonna happen and everything was all right. And then the news just started pouring in. It was terrifying. Yeah, it's like way start like the whole stage set up the day before And then it's just like, Yeah, everything's done. What was your comedy life like Before the pandemic? It was going pretty good. Like I was getting consistent gigs. I had just finished the holiday season and I had done my first half hour at Yuck yucks, which was like a big milestone for me that I had been working on and then me and my buddy Danny night. We're running this open mic Sunday nights at The compromise, which is just a little hole in the law ball bar, and we kind of wood. Just it was like a gorilla open mic. I called it. We just showed up that like 6 30 set up a carioca machine and Didn't open mic at 7 30 on people in the room. Didn't really know what was going on. It's always a good way to do a performance. Sneakily. Yeah s O. I mentioned earlier that you said you did a bit of tape that you were going to send off just for laughs, Um, in hopes of getting to perform there. I want to hear a bit of that. Take a listen. If you just look at a yogurt parfait like if you just look at the cup, I swear it's got the answer to all of the statue in problem great there, you know, Because first you got the white yogurt taking up all the space. On then up top. You got the brown shattered and broken granola. But then in the middle, you got this sweet Barry is a reconciliation. E my guest, Sean, Better great comic from Saskatoon. What's it like to hear that back when you could do stand up? Oh, yeah, Like, like what I was saying, Like I was really happy with that performance like I'm actually gonna put it online for sale pretty soon. Because, yeah, I just want to share it around. It was a good recording and Didn't really get to get much use out of it. And just like, yeah, the crowd was Really amped up that night because I think they knew that they weren't going to be in public for a while. Yeah, And that was the same Sunday that the Jew nose was gonna be And the day after that performance was when lockdown happened. Wow, that's crazy. That's like hearing it, like hearing the Chernobyl or something like that. Yeah, Yeah, It's like a little time capsule. I think. Yeah, You know, I've been talking to a few comics in the past year, and it hasn't been easy to like. I feel like musicians have been able to do a live streams and actors have still been able to do some movies. I feel like this has been hard on stand up comics and really, you know, in a really interesting way, right? Yeah, like we really need audiences to develop our material and like even doing them on zoo Mike's with other comedians like it's just It's not the same. You know, because other comedians will Laugh at your stuff. Differently than an audience well and yeah, like I've been doing a lot of soon Mike's. I've been doing it with people from Chicago people from London, UK and Rome, Italy. Even it's been pretty wild on zoom right, because it's not the same. You don't get that that big collective laughter, right? No. Yeah, like a lot of people have their mikes muted and you're just looking to see like if they're reacting on this screen. Yeah. Don't let me go to you. But what's the story on this one? I actually heard that you did. You did stand up on your aunt's funeral for her eulogy. I'm about first off. I I know you guys were close. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you. What was she like? She was Here is an amazing person. She was the type of person that would always tell it like it is, you know, even with just the look of her eyes. She should. She could tell you tell you how it is, and she was She was big into taking a stand Me in her pro tested a couple of times together and she was a fire keeper on her reserve, Aqua, sassy Mohawk Nation. And yes. Oh, this, uh During covert She passed away due to cancer complications. And what was there with her name? Joyce Caskey. Sorry you were saying so She passed away and you had a service for Yeah, we went to Ontario and we had like a socially distance memorial. And it was kind of different. And like the morning of the memorial, my my dad just kind of just left the eulogy up to me and I was like, what really was kind of like Trying to get some some information that I could use from her childhood or something and and like that, I think people were being kind of agency. But the info and that's what I just kind of like. I had some jokes that I had practiced that involved her. And then I just added a couple stories into it. And I ended up making like a like a little eight minute. A performance that was like part stand up part just speaking from the heart. How did it I mean, This is a strange question for a funeral that how did it go over? Yeah, it actually like, went pretty good, like you know, because it went from like Everyone was in like a somber mood. And then I got up to talk, and I acted like I was gonna talk serious. But then I just cracked a joke at one of the what one of the attendees of the of the funeral and everyone. Was just laughing. And then I told some funny stories about my auntie and It's pretty great, that's beautiful. I mean, I think we think about stand up is something that happens that kind of smoky nightclubs. And that's that's all good. And we think about funerals is just things that are too sad, you know, and that's all good to you. It's lovely. It feels like you were able to It feels like you were able to bring some joy to your family when they needed it through your craft, right? Yeah, when someone passes away, and people are in that stage of grief there kind of focused on on how that person passed away and I think it's important in those times toe, Remember how they lived and the person that they were And cherish those moments, and she's a part of the reason you did stand up it all right? Yeah. She gave me a lot of confidence in my stuff because it was like years to go. My brother passed away when I was 22. He was 20. He was 23. Yeah, and I ended up having to do the eulogy. With my other brother for that one. And that one was more serious and really hard. But I remember after that, my auntie, she was the first one to come up to me, and she was Really proud of me, and she told me that She could picture me being a public speaker one day. And that that compliment like always stuck in my head. And I'm now like Look at me what I do now, so it really helped me a lot when when this is all over. You know, please God, when when this finally ends, and you're able to get up on stage and start doing comedy again. How do you think you have been changed by this year? To be honest, I think I've gained a lot of confidence this past year because a bunch of US comedians from Saskatoon Led by Dakota. He bear way started booking shows and people's backyard on the weekends. And so we would go into people's backyards and do a private show and sometimes, like I I did a show for six people in Martinsville and like to be stand in front of just six people like you really got a perform and not make things awkward and So I think those performances really helped me and I like to get in front of new audiences again. I'm kind of excited toe. Skills. When you picture and maybe this is a good way to close things off when you picture A year from now. What do you hope it looks like for you. I hope that I'm just consistently hosting an open Mike every Sunday again. That's what I would like to do. Yeah. Well, I hope it happens. I hope you never have to go on. Zoom ever again. Yeah, Sean, thanks so much for your time. Yeah. Thanks for having me. Shawn cut hand is a stand up comedian who is also part of the Web series Satirical group, the feather. He lives in Saskatoon.

What To Do When You're Tech-Specting: Navigating the Digital World With Your Kids
"I had learned to have a baby. I was so grateful it is a privilege. I do not take for granted and yet it was a new frontier. I felt scared. And i felt overwhelmed and i wanted to do a good job and my personality type if i am stepping into a scary situation. I want to arm myself. I want as much of a roadmap as i can. So i pursued three things. I talked to my parents. My aunties my you know. All the a generation that helped raise me to get their advice I talked to the parents just a little bit ahead of me. And then i read books like what to expect when you're expecting and that trio of resources helped me even though it was still so hard and it was still uncertain. I had a sense of what some of the likely twists and turns might be and we joke. Sometimes that start is the book that we wish existed that we would call what to expect when you're expecting once again. We as parents are in a new frontier. We don't know what to do and the difference between this and the situation we talked about it. I still do ask the generation ahead of me for advice. But they don't have any lived experience. They wish me well. You know there is no book that's called what to expect when you're expecting. That really helps you walk through how to do this. And what was most startling to myself in the others. When we started this a few years ago is we then went to these friends who are just a little bit ahead of us who when we asked about juggling youth sports or potty training or sibling issues maybe they all said different things. You know you get a lot of different advice but it got some good word for us and when we went to those friends a little bit ahead of us inserted to ask questions like how much screen time is too much. Or how should i feel about social media or fortnight or any of those questions. We were blown away because we're grena. Instead of getting words of wisdom. What we were getting almost consistently was faces. That got like a deer in headlights. And they would say i don't know what to do but do something different and so we started to hear these devastating stories of just how it was creating at the lowest levels stress because we hear national survey say that technology is the number one battleground between parents and kids and in worse cases. Really really sad things that had happened. And so that was what motivated us to say. Hey let's just at least start having this conversation because the other distinctive thing about it was so many of those people shared and of never told anyone about this. There was so much angst and shame and we wanted to bring this issue out so that people could no. You're not alone. There is no playbook but we together are going to become the wisdom makers we're going to create the norms. We're going to have the courage to step into these conversations in the best way we can knowing that we're going to fail but we care enough about our kids to step into the ring. That's good yes. So what have you learned since you all started this. Organization's the questions. That parents were asking the most and how to help their kids navigate their tech world. While i think we've had a lot of consistent questions over time and right now in the middle of covid some of that is more on the back burner. And i would say the most consistent things we're hearing now are. How do i juggle this world where you can't get away from screens learning all of these different things and we have consolidated it into. How do i keep my kit. We've consolidated into three themes. How do i keep my kids safe. How do i keep my kids. Same you know. And how do i keep. My kids seen relational e seem and We have session where we talk about that in detail specifically around the context of virtual learning where so many people are living these days and so we. I felt like we were getting so many questions from parents that had such high expectations and we boiled it down to those three questions because we realize this is not a year where you can have the same level of expectations for yourself as you do in a normal year are we. It takes a village and our village is depleted and not available to help us in the same way and so we felt like it would be really helpful to help parents think. What are those three most important things keeping your kids safe sane and seen and if you do that that is good enough. That is huge during this

"Licensing don't WANNA franchise. Because I somehow I knew franchising was complicated. I knew that McDonald's was franchising knew that they were all over the world and I knew that was Franchisee but I said we're not trying to as he said yes you're franchising. It was growing pains for an as the business grew so quickly in the first two years and she didn't have much work experience or business know-how by now she had her brother. Carl on board. Who had read a Newsweek article on Franchising? So he set up a meeting with this franchising company to confirm that they were in fact franchising and that the licensing agreements they had in place weren't sufficient which meant they could get fined for not issuing a regulatory document to each franchisee before opening each store. At that time they had about fifty stores as as I always Jones that we took all these things to the Lord and we gathered our employees. We talked about it and I said call every Franchisee that we have and tell them about this. We're we're going to have a meeting and real time know what we need to do. We're going just stop overdoing Lane Foundation. Make the changes that we need to call all of the states that were in because in every state. If you're not licensed with the state you cannot do piss this there. We were already in five states so we said call the state officials in anyway so we did all of the things that we needed to do to let everyone know what was up. We are now going to be a franchise organization and we're going to do whatever it takes to be above board and do this with integrity. We're going to do it right so for six months. We didn't sell any franchises but we just got our housing order. It was very very tough time but God who is with us. We didn't get any fines and we had no franchisees that left the system that were that upset with us. Thankfully they got out of an honest mistake now. The company had a Franchisee Model. That would cover the cost overhead so their business as they were looking to expand westward to Texas or California and realized that they needed presents for training and distribution so in nineteen ninety-three and went to the banks asking for a one point five million dollar loan. There was three banks we went to and they all said no and I was devastated. Like why would they want? The banks. Don't give us any money. I don't understand. Banks did not want to give us the money because they did not like the contribution columns for you and I was devastated. Because I'm thinking fully should be happy that we're that we're in the community we're giving the community. Were blessing people and so my brothers said. So what are we GONNA do? I said well you know what if God wants us to expand and he wants to go into these five regions and he'll provide the money. Somehow I had a new employee that just came she said. I know you're looking for money. Everybody knew that the banks denied us so she said I have a friend that has a lot of money and he loves your pretzels. I bet you would give you the money that you need like really you think you buy new. Employees calls her friend and told him that we need one point. Five million dollars that he said well sure that I'll meet her tomorrow for coffee so over coffee that day said sure. I'll give you one point. Five million no problems at all put to check in the middle morning in have an agreement and all you need to do is sign it senator. Pack to me when you get the check. So that's how that's how we get our expansion funding from the age investor. He was a chicken farmer county. It was a god moment during this time as the company is growing. How does you upskill and business? How did you feel like you were able to do that? Even though you didn't have that education so I went through a period where. I was very intimidated by everybody. That knew more than I did. That have more education that had more business knowledge that all these things. I've felt intimidated and fearful. I focused on what I didn't have in which to which would have had more. What I didn't have was a former education capital and a business plan which everybody says you kind of have that to to do business so during that time that Jonas just touch me at one point he said Hunt. Stop comparing yourself with everyone. You know that God didn't ask anyone else in the world to be Anti Dan. He only ask you so apparently You can do this and I was like he said. Just stop. Just stop comparing yourself. Everyone and become the best anti and that you could possibly be one point. I realize we did have was a great product. Great purpose and great people. And when you're this is if you can focus on what you have That will take you further than what you than what you've ever imagined but if you stay stuck on what you don't have you've really will never grow always be whining and wishing you had more but focus on what you have and that was really created vice because I really did stop winding. I started thinking about what I need to just begin to read books to conferences on with the training sessions. I went to leadership conferences. I just did all of that to to get better and better. At who who I was and overtime I really got very comfortable in my skin and I turned into a businesswoman which show surprised me and I loved it for over seventeen years and bilour ran anti family shoes founder and president for many years but best describes herself as a cheerleader with the greatest role of encouraging. The right people she put in place to keep going by two thousand and five her second cousin. Sam Bilour was running the company and became less involved in decision. Making as she transitioned into more of a spokesperson role for the company. By that time Auntie Ann's had about nine hundred locations. Worldwide an annual sales of two hundred and fifty million. This was when an fell. It was a good time to sell her pretzel. Business to sell. The company was very tough. It was difficult a very difficult decision. But because Sam was also grew up in the amish culture We understood the values. The understood the culture of the mission of the company and he had been there Seventeen years and had been had worked at every department of the company so I felt very good about The company being in his hands. What would you say made you want to sell number one? The company had grown so much that I felt like take it to another level. I did not have the energy. Didn't have the the desire I just felt like we'd take it to a level. That was as far as I wanted to go but I knew that we were going to go further. That was one reason and the other reason was also feel like it's. It's a really important to know when to buy and when to sell and when to stop a win to go. I also believe that in business pastors or any leaders like sometimes we stay too long. You know we wear our welcome out and our ideas aren't as Chris but I felt like it was time the company was doing well. There were no issues that I was driving with. There was nothing going wrong. We were doing well. We were hospitable but we just felt like God said. It's okay if we wanted to sell. He's got more for us to do after an sold. Auntie Ann's to Sam Bilour. In two thousand five. The company continued to grow five years later. Sam Sold Anti answer to focus brands. An affiliate of private equity firm roark capital group which also owns brands like cinnabon carvel and Jama juice. Today Auntie Ann's has around eighteen hundred stores. Worldwide annual sales of about eight hundred million which means the company had nearly tripled revenue. From one ansel the company fifteen years ago although antion has switched owners and still goes back to speak every once in a while just this year. She was with the team. They have a little notebook on on the outside says what would and do just such an honor because they understand how grew that company and if the company is going to keep going in the right direction they just gotta stick with the basics. It's really not that complicated. I had faith in God who was leading us every step of the way. Yes and you had an amazing husband to to be by your side. Oh yeah absolutely and describes Jonas as a man of few words but his actions and care took on this incredible journey to start a Pretzel Empire and says the biggest difference Jonas made in her life was probably when she was thirty. Three scared and confused after confessing the Secret. She had kept inside of her. What would you say you felt? He did that really helps it was it was his spirit.

"Welcome back now. Let's get into the story of how an started anti ns in nineteen eighty eight. She was thirty nine years old. You you had this mentality that you just wanted to be a wife. You wanted to be married to have kids and suddenly. You're becoming the breadwinner for your family. What made you want to do more? I would never have pursued anything more. I I loved what I was doing but somebody came to me and just said to me you really need to think about buying your own store and I left that they will make I don't. I'm good I store. I'm doing well here. And this lady actually persisted to the point where you said here. Here's a fun number of the people that want to sell their store in downingtown one While okay I'll give them a call but we had no money. We honestly get no money in the bank. So my mentality at that point was again. Ford is sometimes at farmer's market was Sella's highs anywhere from fifty thousand to two hundred fifty thousand dollars for one little Twelve by twenty little store in a market because they were very lucrative and so anyway she said here. Here's the number. Call them now so I take out of just kind of curiosity like okay and so when I called them. I asked him so much. You want for your store. The downy Tom Harkin they said. We want six thousand dollars and my jaw dropped so I whispered husband as I'm on the phone mouth to him. They only want six thousand dollars for the store and I said I'm just going to tell them I wanted he sent. Yes do so so I get back on the phone. Tell him I said you know what will check their We'll recheck by tomorrow. That was the way I bought. That store never saw it but something inside of me and I told my husband after I hung up. I said I don't need to pray about this. I just know this is what God wants us to do. And he then go forward and new. Jonas Dad also known as pop could probably lend them the money at that point. She had never asked to borrow money in her life. She says her palms sweaty when she took the check from pop to take it over to the store owner the very same day she bought. The store was the first time she walked in. When we come to the store it was very dirty. It was very sloppy. There was no flow in the store and when it comes to realize that they were making pretzels as well and like I didn't buy it because he was a principal shop because they had Pizza Pretzel. Lemonade ice cream. A few you know snack foods and so when we got there. I knew what a store how it should flow because of the sore I was happy for so we just kind of We remodeled in cost this. Because I had a brother and my husband that a remote may have cost his a couple of hundred dollars to pay. It's and clean up and in a couple of days we. That's store squeaky clean the flow of it was perfect. I was so excited that we were the owners of this. Little Pretzel Pizza Shop. I couldn't believe that we did this. And then I got scared. Buyer's remorse Veli. Why why is that the job that was stable? I was making fifty dollars a week and we started with nothing and six thousand dollars but I just knew that we could do this somehow. The store itself was making eight hundred seventy five dollars in two days. I had the numbers triggered out my head that if we do a little more than that that we can eventually by car so the very sweet. We did more than they had done. They were cash positive from day. One this was an opening a store in its original form selling PIZZAS LEMONADE. Ice Cream and pretzels. In fact she says she was selling more pizzas than the previous owners did because they tasted really good but for some reason the pretzels were not that great and she couldn't figure out why and I had the recipe that I took with me from the other market which my boss at that time. He told me I couldn't use the so. I took that recipe to my new store. But my hat's holes were not the same. They couldn't understand it. We just really take her with the Pretzel the recipe. The Trays Ovens. We did everything we could think of. And still it was. It was white. It was almost. It was almost crunchy. It was it just was terrible so one Friday morning after about six weeks of really trying to make this work my husband and I were there alone and I said to him. I am so frustrated with the principals. I'm GONNA take off the menu and we're just GONNA DO PIZZA LEMONADE. And Ice Cream. And he said hunt before you give up because I believe that there's something about these pretzels that I just WanNa make him really goodness had. So what are we gonNA do about it and says because Jonas's mom had a disability? He grew up cooking and baking for his family. Jonas that day one to work on this existing Pretzel Recipe. They had he added to ingredients to make the dough crafted of the pretzels and threw them into the oven for an. It's hard to believe what happened when she was ready to throw out the pretzels from the menu. We're watching the dough rise and we realize wow. The dove feels different. It looks to fringe so when the rats was finally made. We pulled out the dipped in butter as we always do. We stood there and ate this pretzel and we all we could say was like wow. This is really good and sure enough. The very first customer bought it pretzel and Good Bite and Help Pretzel and looked at it and he said what is this and I said. Oh it's suck and he's so. This is nothing like as talk pencil that I have ever tasted. This is so good and that response just gave us the Kinda like just send off like this is it. So That Day Antietam Hetzel was born. I still remember getting my first Auntie. Anne's Pretzel and junior high. My sister told me you have to taste the sour cream and onion pretzel and literally melted my mouth. So what you? Jonas came up with with something really good and I have to ask. How did you guys keep the recipe top secret at that time because you know you had to? Yes we knew we knew had to immediately. We really didn't realize we were planning on a big company at that point. My one store that year we did another store and then the next year. We did ten stores that year. One thousand nine hundred eighty nine. My husband didn't hunt on. That's a word. But we as a secret recipe like Coca Cola. Did exactly how did you guys think through that you know? We ended up doing a little mini little manufacturing in our garage and took all of the ingredients. We set up a little Sibley line and check it out how to mix we call them batches so that everyone who taught them at their store with the water and the east to them. They eventually did so well with the pretzels that they dropped the other items off the menu while the story of how they got started is not typical of how most people get started. I wanted to highlight that. It worked for them and started this company without a company name. She says it was typical for farmers markets. At that time to just sell things without a brand name once pretzels became a hit. She did eventually come to realize that they needed a name for what they were doing. After we have protected the recipe that was about six weeks ago we got slant we could not keep up making pretzels. We had to buy more ovens and at one point we should. We should name this. We should have a name for the company so my two sisters. My one friend and I got together. We sat at one of my tables at the market and we wrote down on a Napkin. What can we call this? We came up with this whole list of things at my friend's emmy she said to me. Why don't you just call it? Anti ends edsels because everybody calls you anti anyway Mike. Oh okay I wouldn't have said on my own. I mean that would have been a little too prideful a after me her saying that each it. Clint. My first nieces and nephews called me and Ian Because Anton just rolled and soon realized that she didn't have a business plan for how they would properly scale the company because people started coming in droves to get a taste of Auntie Ann's Pretzel. The business grew from word of mouth alone. They spent no money on advertising and all of a sudden they were getting inquiries from people who are willing to set up their own stores to sell the Auntie. Anne's pretzels. I read somewhere. That in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight between two stores. You almost hit a hundred thousand dollars which is more money you've ever seen in your whole life from two stores. You said you went to ten. Did you start realizing? Oh we need to buy more stores than these locations. No we never went looking for more stores. The product itself. It was the driver. People would taste the Pretzel and there was such impose about dance. Pretzels at people wanted to do their own stores. I ten were just mostly family and a few friends from our church. Actually that did stores. We were not prepared for even those tent. We didn't have a business model. We didn't have a business plan. We had a little one page agreement and said that. If you WANNA do it's pretzels you'll give us an up for. I call it upfront. Fee and a percentage of your of your gross sales. And then we'll help you build a store and we'll train you and so really it was franchising but we had no idea. That's what it was. You had no idea what you are doing with franchising. What how did you hear about it? One of our licensed people came to us and said I need. We need to go out for dinner. We need to talk about the business model. And I said okay. I'll chipper about. It was all good to go and no problem and he sent me. You need to know that you're franchising and I remember. I said to him. No we're.

"Described the pretzels like this. It's pretty bad tastic. Really amazing delicious. My name is an beyeler and founder of anti ends soft pretzels. Can't believe you're the founder of Antioch Pretzel and that you're an actual person because it was an epic Pixel. I thought it was either fictitious or this dear anti Anna around and more but it looks like you're alive and well I truly am alive in one more alive and well today than I have ever been in my entire life and wasn't always in a good place and able to speak with such freedom from the baggage of her past but before we get into your story. I wanted you to think with me about the challenges. You're going through. That might be hindering. Your career growth. Could it be not having the money you need to get started finding the right partner getting the right idea or the difficulties of perfecting your product? Or do you feel insecure. Because you feel you like the skills education social upbringing or could it be even a bit deeper than that? Did something shocking or unfair happened to you that you can't imagine getting out of for an she never could have imagined the tragedy and trauma. That would come her way and grew up in simple sheltered home in small town. Pennsylvania born in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine shoes. The third of Eight Children. She says at one point. Her parents were called old order. Amish which means they only farmed with a horse and buggy because the culture would reject using any electricity or technology even if they were available and says when she was three years old. Her Dad made a decision that would change their family life on the farm. My Mom and dad left the old order. Amish which means we looked like the Amish. 'cause Amish people have certain dress that everybody dresses the same way? So going into the black car amish simply meant that A. We could have a car but it had to be black and my dad was able to farm with a tractor. Could you tell me about your childhood? Anyone that grew up on a farm. Whether you're amish are not knows what. It's like to work very hard. And so all eight of US kids really had are assigned jobs and I'm always said that I wasn't as well as the rest of the kids. I guess I was a little sickly so I worked in the kitchen with my mom. She told me how to bake. And how to cook several husband. Indoor kid and while the wrestler kids worked on the farm and do the work ended the garden. Can you tell me what education was like in your community so when I went to school was really all about reading writing and with Nick and I loved school and I really enjoy learning growing up? Black Car Amish meant that we went through the eighth grade. And then at that point you quit going to school because there's really not a high school to go to in our culture and you help you out on farm. So what do you remember what your ambitions were growing up by dream in life was to have my own family to do? Exactly what mom and dad did. I didn't think about having a career as a little girl I asked for a really good man wanted to tall dark and handsome guy because my dad's Kinda short and Chubby and when I met shown this the very first time my heart just like started beating like. Oh my gosh. This guy is really handsome. He was an amish guy. That knew how to work love. God wanted a family and we met at a US back in the days in our Church and tell me about your faith at this time. Three entities influence my life. One was my mom and Dad taught me that love God and keep his commandments and my Christian School Taught Me to love God and keep his commandments and my church taught me to love God and keep his commandments. So I look at that Grayson had a very very strong foundation when it comes to my faith and not all of it was correct. I believe that life is good and God is harsh. Seems like you're educated in God absolutely about who God was and to you life was good and God was good. Yeah as long as you were. Good yes greg way to set you marry Jonas. When you're nineteen and he was twenty one. What was he doing for a living? When you're Amish in sixteen years old your dad takes you assigned says we'RE GONNA go buy you a horse in a carriage so at that time. Jonas new heated not one person buggy be said. I didn't want horses. I wanted something with horsepower so the day that he told his dad that he doesn't want a Horse Buggy his dad said. Damn then you're going to have to go buy your own car and Jonas filer. I went to a junk yard. And he found in one thousand nine hundred fifty Chevy and he fixed that car up and he became a bodyman. That's how we made a living and was living her amish girl dream when she married her handsome husband. Jonas by now they're both part of the Mennonite church community and they got involved in a small church plant. It grew from eleven to one thousand people in three years. Things are going well and became a young mom of two girls. She enjoyed living on the farm and maintaining the home. Just like your parents did. When an was twenty six years old an incident on the farm would take her life on a downward spiral on September. Eighth Nineteen Seventy Five and looked on as they're eager nineteen month old. Angie walked over to grandma's as she usually did but didn't foresee what would happen next. Angie walked out of our front door on her way to my mom's house which was a few hundred feet from my place. We were very host each other living on the same farm but between my house. My Mom's House my dad Had A cement stone citing business and my sister would haul sand and use a tractor of of some sort and that morning. She was hauling sand on this unabomber cat and she didn't C. N. G. Behind her and which she went to back up and then turn it to go forward she saw Angie in the front of the Bobcat and realized that she'd run over. And you know when I say that as I say that it comes back to me I remember the unbelievable and I just could not believe this happened and we picked her up and carried her to the emergency room and in shock. And I'll never forget that moment when we realized that the doctor pronounced her dead in a pulled a little white sheet up over her and I never experienced anything close to that in. You know what we do those moments you just all of us. Ask God why so because I believe that I was a good girl. God was harsh. I went from that place. why God to blaming God. What types of things came to your mind as mother as a wife that particular morning that I had? I really didn't take the time to dress properly was still in her ninety. I wanted to call her back. To Change. Your diaper and footer tress. On but that morning I watched her go around the little bend and I decided a call. Momma tell my mom. She's on the way well. Obviously that became my greatest skills and after she died I could not stop thinking about the fact. If I would've call her back then she'd still be with me so. The guilt of that became huge. So as Angie made her ascent into heaven I began my descent into a world of pain and spiritual confusion that I knew nothing about what started happening in your life. And how did you try to get.

"I if you're ready to forty year old that's never been married thing is wrong with him the the delph that I was going out with we've we've all talked liked about him. He had a hard time getting it up and all of those things would have been fine like he's a nice guy and everything every time we had a conversation he would bring up his ex wife. That's not to listen. I have an ex husband. I don't talk about him. Every ten minutes like be quiet. How long has he been in divorced nine months. Oh that's too soon men. It takes longer to get over a divorce than it does. Women now there those men that he's mmediately turn around and and start dating someone to get married five minutes later but they're always going to be married that marriage could break out and they're going to get married there. They want to be married but man it takes a longer period of time for men to get over it than women especially if she instigated the R- the divorce in any way or she was kind of already done or checked out you know that's you gotTa. Give them like eighteen months and hope. Nobody scoops him up in the meantime. Here's my question for you. Andy Okay Anti does does does your self esteem. Get better as you get older. You care less so in a way yes but I tell you if you're forty changes. Your forties are straight up frigging amazing because all of a sudden like you wake I kind of jokingly said earlier fat skinny skinny skinny. That's a lie okay. I literally have every size of clothing in my closet because I'm either never in between fat or skinny right now. I'm on the way down after being fat this whole winter so that you own the seven but he just went to Greece with listeners on a boat so this means bathing suits and I'm I was. I'm big right now for me. I mean I'm big for me. I just decided before the trip first of all I'm taking my ten year old daughter with me and I was determined not to inflict my issues on her so I started literally walking around my house in a bathing suit like a month before we went on this trip and my husband goes not that I'm complaining because he just thinks I'm the greatest thing ever. I swear straight up. He thinks on the hottest thing going. It doesn't matter how much anyway he thinks I'm the hottest thing going. He's like nothing. I'm complaining. But what are we doing here. I said it briefly on is is that I'm trying to get comfortable in a bathing suit because I don't want to inflict my body images on my daughter but you know what it worked. It absolutely works so by the time I got on that ship degrees. I don't really care what these listeners side. Just didn't care you realize as you get older. Everyone is so into do their own crap that if they think about your crap it's only in passing and it's fleeting and it does not matter and even if it extends to a conversation about you with friends. It does not matter if you surround yourself with people that have your back that you trust that you know they love you. None of that stuff matters I and it is very very liberating. We'll tell you as you get older. Sex gets way better. We'd Laurie now and it was so good. It was my favorite podcasts so far for me personally. I wouldn't say that I'm now like more confident the older again but I am more comfortable. Do you know what I mean so I'm just like you. Were saying you care less so it's like that brings confidence because even like circling back to the friend thing. I ain't got time for people who don't WanNa be around yeah because I'm more comfortable to be able to say that because I don't WanNa give you you suck and if you're talking shit about me by my bed time for that right like the I don't care because I don't have time for you. Life's too short short. I think that's super cool that you did that for like to become like to show your daughter well. Do I mean I grew up watching my mom struggle with her weight. I mean this is a family tradition in my house and I know that watching her going and extreme diet when I was eight years old definitely had an impact on me and my older sister was horrible to me when I was in my teens and now rationally I look back it was rooted in Jealousy. It was read in a lot of things things that are not my problem but she made them my problem and so I've had these body image issues. I've had all of this stuff going on for decades and now I look back in my twenty s and I'm like damn. I wish I was fat now as I thought I was then. You know 'cause we hot. We were hot back then. We were too stupid to realize. We were so self conscious in so dumb. I look back on things I didn't do because I didn't want to put on a bathing suit. This fantastic lawyer that I went out with for a little while but he lived in Mobile Alabama I lived in Orlando is when I was a flight attendant and he's like you gotta come to mobile. You got on the boat with this. All my friends WanNa meet you like he was getting things serious about me and he was a great guy and I just said I can't make it because I didn't WanNa wear bathing suit. I was forty five pounds lighter than I am. There's forty pounds lighter and I turned up an opportunity with a great guy. I was like Oh my God is GonNa think I'm fat. No they would have thought I was hot. My mom always told me that like it's all it's all in how you carrier it really is and my mom was always a heavier woman. Even when she was a teenager she was heavier than I was. When I was a teenager heavy quote unquote but like I'm not as overweight as she was and that woman would slap on a bathing suit anytime mm you ask she would walk out her stuff. I mean sexy was an attitude for her. I love that Yeah Amy I've noticed about you and that's something that I think is super commendable. They'll use. I am because like I'm I've always kind of worked out. Nestle worried what other people thought that I just didn't feel comfortable right. You're GonNa meet and so I think it's I. I think that's super awesome at your age to also be like you don't like the package. You don't have to open it the I think that's when I realized that like if it really is about sex appeal when I when I left my ex husband I went on a fuck spree like I think I slept with like seven people the first week because I had such low self esteem you were trying to validate your through that and I realized that I could really we have sex with anyone that I wanted to tried she. Can I ask you this question because one of the things that age brings are brought for me anyway and I had several sexual experiences several multiple. It's just vague enough. I'm just GONNA leave it at that but what I realized was that for me the one night hookup is very unsatisfying might be physically satisfying briefly but for me emotionally it was damaging for me in the long run and I did not what I didn't feel good about myself. I question myself because ultimately a one night. Stand for a guy is a one night stand and that's where it's GonNa and but I think for me anyway you do get you. Even if you're trying to manage your own expectations when there is no follow up call and there's IT batters is your self esteem and once I realized that and said Okay that particular thing is not for me then I was more selective and and I was now I was purposeful in my choices with the people that I was intimate with and that for me was a big kind of sexual liberation in a way which sounds counterintuitive because I said you know what I'm going to enjoy sex monogamous situation that worked better for me and I wonder if your age group Amy specifically feel like millennial women have been sold such conflicting messages their entire lives whether it is on the one inside of the Denver Topless event was last Sunday and you have all these women allison et cetera part boobs out and you know what I get the whole the freedom aspect but essentially you're showing men your tits. That's all they want. They just want to see your tits. They don't care if they hang down to your waist. They just WANNA see your tests. Kreis and you're giving it to them. They're that's what they're yeah. I was at breakfast right next door. I was walking back and I was like wait a minute they I don't have any on free to dip and then listening to it and I mean great for them like whatever I wish I could walk. I love being naked but Jesus Jesus Christ there to do that. I just made sure they got like cross messages on the other side of that you have this sort of feminist line of thinking that you need to take control of your sexuality and you can go out and have sex with whoever you want and you're taking control of your sexuality but I think it ignores this kind kind of basic biological fact whether we like it or not women are responsible for reproduction and if you get knocked up you are responsible for what happens next and always had the opportunity to walk away and that's unfair in the grand scheme of things but that's how it is not only did they not make me come but they got me pregnant every time. I think I'm pregnant what the but this is careless would time middle aged thirty-five no you have. There's things you can do about that. No I know like slowly learning. I'm I'm not saying that I was not like you but the older you get you realize like do I really like because you are no matter what you're going to be stuck with the child like you or or this decision. If you decide that you're going to have an abortion which sounds terrifying that has a lot of mental uh-huh yeah you you think about that all with a one night stand because I never had a one night stand ever Xiaomi. I've found Jesus Person. I'm not religious. It's not because I was like saving myself offer some. Shit but like to me. It always did come across as if you do do just sleep with whoever you're more confident and for me I just like I always took it to mean Oh. You're not really confident because you're not putting yourself out there. You're not willing to just like yeah. That's my uh-huh sex. Today is not that important to me. I guess I don't know but like I like it when I'm whistling Wendy that I'm comfortable..

Hey have you ever thought about being a flight. I'm like yeah that sounds good and I met a flight attendant at a bar so so after talking to her I I was in college. I was in my senior year and I applied to be a flight attendant in February and I had to go to school to August but the flight attendants like do do they won't even call you for an interview for like nine months. It'll be fine got called for an interview right away and ended up dropping out of college to be a flight. Attendant is the best decision I ever made my life. I mean across across the board. I saw the entire United States. I mean places. I never want to go back to again but places I do want to go back to. I have traveled extensively in Europe. I I traveled a little bit in went to Tokyo and stuff like that but I meant incredible people I went. I told Amy I think in a prior podcast broadcasts. We were talking about like people on the plane.

I had an absolute blast. I mean I just had an absolute blast. I and you get to the point. I was at five at five years roughly and you kind of have to make a decision about the seven year mark because at the seven year eight year tenure mark he's start holding a schedule and it just gets really easy to just stay there forever. So you know what I mean. Because then you start making a little bit of money you hold a great schedule. You're not working all the time. So you kind of decide am. Am I going to do this forever or am. I going to go in a different direction and that's when I met a man on the airplane that got me into Radio so oh it has been very serendipitous experience of my life where I just. I always tell people man I ride the wave. Some people opportunity comes up smacks Aksum in the face and they go don't hit me and walk away for me. Opportunity walks by me.

It's no not at all not on the plane on layovers. They don't call them layovers for nothing billy. I found out very yeah but I I didn't find out until until it was weird we hook up when we flew together which was not that often but whenever he would fly to Orlando he would call me and I'd come pick him up when we go out and have a great time and then one night we're in Orlando and we're at dinner and he gets up to go to the bathroom and he leaves his wallet on the table and the waiter. This is also like I wouldn't pick-up somebody's wallet. That's not how I roll but the waiter came up in the process of dropping the check hits the Wallet. The Wallet Comes Open.

It's bad when one of you grows up and the other one does it exactly and then you're left with his socially retarded person who is emotionally immature and you're doing often going and doing things and they're just sucking the life out of you at every opportunity. That's those are the people you just gotTa. Say Nice knowing you. I wish you nothing but the best but this is not working for him. Honestly the money like for me. I started making money because I was a salesperson right hustled like right at twenty two hours making big money and none of my friends were and I was just like we take it fagin. Let's do it. I don't think that they need to do that in return but like you still got to be a good friend right for that we buy you dinner. Every time we go out to eat. I have friends who will wait for me to grab the check now if we go out all by around a drink. That's how I'd like doing that for people but I'm not GONNA do every time I was very lucky. In the in my early twenties I lived with a bunch of people I mean a bunch of people and we had what we call the roommate banking system where all my roommates were bartenders and I was a flight attendant so we made almost the same amount of money I mean money. They made no money but whenever somebody was short short like somebody else would float them money but there was all. We always got each other's back. There was never that imbalance and part of it was because we were on the same financial footing wedding. That was one of the things I loved about that situation. There was a lot that I hated about that situation because it was just a lot but that was one of the things I thought okay. We did that right it because nobody ever was if somebody was you know you always have that mooch friend. Oh I don't have any money to pay for pizza. It got like well then. You're not eating pizza by yeah you don't eat. It's yeah exactly then you should probably go and make a sandwich at your house one. I have a lot of friends who will play that card like. I just can't afford to get a drink tonight and I'm waiting for me to. I'll get it for you this time. You know it's exhausting. It's like you've been Mo- The purse or get you to drink tonight but if you know all video you or if someone tells you they can't do something you have to. Don't take it personally. I'd rather people I will be honest with me but there is you can tell the people who are waiting for you to offer verses okay. Hey Dude like I just don't have the money to go out right because as I know I have that problem my friends do Lincoln's and stuff like that that I don't have they want to go to these swanky as places for Brunch and things like that and I'm like I can't do that. I did go broke over over brunch dinner once and we got blades. She's like I like to get high and go and have really fancy dinners but I didn't know it was going to get seven course. We're volume wash park real. Do we have a great time. Yes we treat ourselves house yes by but then the shots free because I'm trying to fuck the bartender next door. We're on a race to the bartender working not giving him Brian. I'm giving him my number twice. He's still hasn't called relieving wonder leaving the last time. He said he was gonNA call me. He never lost number and I take back. I'll be back to give it to him again. Well I'm married. That's really the reason I'm not dating but I'm glad I usually we established relationships at us. Everyone knows Trina on Single Mandy married Sarah Single and amy single well as well single as hell. I will tell you one of the greatest experiences that I had with I have I have a group Chat Group on what's up with two of my longest best friends that I'm one of them. I've known since fourth grade and we were roommates in college and then the other one I met when I still her boyfriend when I was nineteen and he's long gone but we're like besties. Steve and the girl who lives in New York I went to New York for a conference and I had just gotten like my first big big contract big contract and we went up and she invited like four other women friends to go to dinner with us and we got that dinner bill and it was like nine hundred dollars and I smacked my credit card down and I'm like pay. Hey the bill and I'm telling you right now. It was the most empowering experience of my life only. Could I pay my credit card. I could pay the bill it. It was just it was so incredibly liberating have that experience and it was just. I feel like a bad ass. I'M NOT GONNA lie like we're used to having people pay the bill for us. Even my husband my husband's a stay at home dad yet. He pays the bill when we go out die so it's different pockets of the same pair of pants right. It's like all the money yet. He pays the bill because that's what the man does and having that moment of just saying I got this new four bottles of wine for everybody bad friends come into town if they if they get a flight and they plan the whole thing thing we will get high and then we will go to guard and grace which I love gardening grace. Is that one of Alex else restaurants no okay but it's downtown great so good and we'll. I'll drop like four hundred dollars on a meal just 'cause. I'm happy that they came. I want them to feel special right. Oh Oh town so that's never show them the bill because I don't want them to feel bad I would not for any other reason people should know how much you're spending on them and I feel really strongly about that and I'm not saying like leave the price tag on a gift okay. That's not that yeah but there's two parts to this one. They need to understand that that's a big financial commitment for you and hopefully they feel appreciated. He hopefully they go dan. This is not just a nice thing. This is a really nice thing because I think too often we don't take the time to just appreciate what other people do for us and you know what they what they the time they commit to us or the money that they spend on us and anything that allow someone to go holy crap. That was really special not that the meal itself wasn't special but man that was even more special. I say that bill and go to the bathroom. Let him check is also like I think when you do those things you have to hear that thank NCUA sometimes yeah even if they're not going in turning around buying new hundred dollar dinner fine. You don't expect that but having that like hey I do really appreciate that like that was really generous view that is enough times you now to like just feel appreciated and I think that's really important and I think that goes news with not just even with money like kind of the segue but emotionally mooching people two volleys. That's my problem and I don't. I feel that there's a lot of people who emotionally needs so much more emotional vampires sometimes but yes like they suck the life. You and it's like like all about them all the time all the time. They're having some kind of crisis or whatever and it's never never was it ever asked. How are you fricking cricket like. Oh Yeah that's right. We've been friends for six months. You'll have siblings. Come on now like Gada your sterling kind of thing you know what I mean I just I don't know and sometimes those are the ones friends that have had a kind of like break it off with a little bit because it was like I had a friend who was going through a really tough time time. She'd like mentally like she had a lot. She just had a lot of issues and it was fine but it got to win like she would constantly ditch out on plans hands and it was always about her and how we can help her and I know she needed that for that time but I just got opening. It was like maybe I need some help too right right and it never never even got a chance to say that you're talking about a friend of six months. I had a friend of twenty years with this on well in an and to your point we used to have this. We have kind of a running joke. She was that sort of person. You say Oh my God. I'm so broke right now. I can't pay my rent and she goes Oh. I remember that time that I was so broke. All I had was a bag of chocolate nuts combos that I live on that for like four weeks and.
