Welcome back to the podcast pleasure to be here so we spoke not so long ago about your last book. The fifth risk which was all about risk surely global pandemic was one of those risks. What did you learn from reporting napa. That maybe informed. This book didn't just inform this book and led to this book. The premise of the fifth risk was that. Stop thinking about the federal government. However you think about it if you think about it and think about it. As a manager of a portfolio of risks many of them existential that has been left to degrade and under the trump administration was actually kinda bashed around the head. A bunch and one of those risks is the risk of pandemic disease. The fifth risk was asking the question. What happens if people neglect these risks and actually spent more of more of the time just pointing out the risks. That i won didn't really know existed that you could go into any department any agency in the government. The commerce department the agriculture department departments that you think maybe they don't do very much and find just terrifying things. They're managing so. When i was thinking about what bad might happen. That the government might mismanage pandemics. Were on that list. But i thought it was. I gotta tell you.

"Welcome back to the town hall Review with you, Hewitt. In some parts of the country. Schools have returned to normal for some time, The science indicated school was safe for Children. The results have proven that that theory was true. But in other parts of the country, especially so in big cities, where teachers unions are the most powerful schools remain locked, down, closed and that led to a shocking incident in the city of Berkeley. Sailor Most Charlie Kirk, explain Berkeley teacher union head Says all schools should be close to Berkeley, California. Saying it's unsafe to send kids to school. At the same time. It has now been revealed. He has been dropping off his son at an in person private school. So the head of the Berkeley teacher Union Says, Shut down the schools not safe, but it's safe enough for my kid. There's a deeper point to all of this. We talked about this a great length. Every single position that it conservative. Advocates. We also live. Every single position that a Democrat advocates Is inconsistent with how they want to live. For example. I'm okay with building walls around people's homes. I'm also okay with building a southern border wall. I'm okay with people owning firearms. In fact, I'm okay being protected by firearms. I'm okay with school choice and sending Children to different schools. Where's Democrats? They say We want to shut down the schools because it's unsafe. And his name is Matt Mayer. Matt Maier says it's unsafe, but by the way, it's safe enough for my child something to send him the preschool. Democrats say they don't like walls, but they're happy to build one around the U. S. Capitol Democrats say that they think climate change is an extension threat, but they're happy toe go around the North American continent on private jets. Since the Democrats Worldview and the left worldview is inconsistent with human nature. In fact, it's completely at war with human nature. They will always be isolated and singled out as hypocrites. Same with Gavin Newsom. Gavin Newsom says, Keep the restaurant's closed. Meanwhile, I'm going to go dine at French laundry. Rhonda Santa's says open the schools open the restaurants. Then he goes and has a beard. The Super Bowl. No one attacks him because he is then living The world view that he's implementing in the state of Florida. So this guy, Matt Mayer, Was caught on camera, saying that we must keep public schools closed, but my child can have private in school instruction. Typical for the Democrats. They want to have rules that they live under..
How to Give Visitors a Wow! Experience
"Priscilla rice and I'm coming to you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of BNI. Dr. Ivan misner. Hello, How are you? And where are you this week? I am in addition to many recorded visits all around the world. I am Live this week June for a regional compact. In event, so I'm in Canada this week. That sounds all right. Now also this week I have a guest this is his fifth visit to as a guest to be an iPod cast and his name is Mark Applebaum. Mark has been would be and I for over 15 years. He's been a director consultant for more than five years. He's long and successful chapters in the b&i Utah and North Region Marx married to his amazing life. He says Tiffany for almost twenty years with two children Ryan and Tom Jenna and one of the things that Mark loves to do is to teach chapter members how to give visitors a wow experience. I can't think of anything better than that. Welcome back Mark mm contest. Thank you so much. I've it's great to be back. What's good to have you here? And you want to start by talking about making visitors female wanted so the floors your home. Well, thank you, you know a little background of where my y about this topic came up his growing up. I grew up back east in New York and my dad owned a pet store or at the time when I was growing up and I worked for my dad for many years and my dad was the world to me and he struggled a lot financially. So if a customer ever left his store, but happy it really affects his livelihood. So I was did my best to if a customer wasn't having a positive experience at least have them leads as happy as possible and you know in vni every visitor is not only a potential customer to be an eye, but it's a potential customer for ourselves. It's a their potential referral partners for ourselves more could lead us to potential customers or referral Partners. So how we treat our visitors. It's just imperative. So this podcast, you know, if you're a visitor host. It's not just meant for the visitor house out there. It's really meant for every single member to take on the mindset of a visit. Post because we all play a role in that visitor experience and it's in the future success of our chapter know let me just add one thing to you real quick. I know if you know this, but when I started back we didn't have visitor hosts. One of the things I said was that if you invited a visitor you had to be there host and honestly that didn't work as well. So because not everybody's created equal as a host wage and we did create visitor host. But that was my initial concept with b and I was that everybody had to be a host especially the person that invited them and I love the story to share in in givors gained about the visitor you sent to a chapter who ended up going to a different chapter who's the chapter that actually designed to visit our house program. That's either story. So everyone listening think about the region your chapters in and the amount of chapters you have in your region and just here in the Utah North Region. We have fifty three chapters and just in the Salt Lake area we have over 2,000 chapter wage. So depending on what what a visitor does they really in a twenty-mile radius twenty-minute radius. They have a wide variety of of chapters to choose from. So if you if the for the people if you take a moment and think about your chapter and the culture that it has now imagine for a moment every chapter in your region met at the same time the same day in the same location as all the other chapters sure that's not possible. But imagine it was for a moment. Yeah, I would a visitor choose your chapter over all the other ones and you know, it really comes down to what the poet Maya Angelou says best people will forget what you said people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel. Yes, what a visitor feel welcomed and important. They're more likely to want more of that and yep. That's why we all play a role in that positive experience. Whether you're the visitor host or not your contribution to your chapter and that in your involvement with how the visitor enters the room and Enterprise is in call and and welcoming them really makes such a difference. So a few examples of ideas that members and chapters can take on that could be very beneficial to them. The first is off when the visitor is already registered in BNI connect. The leadership team will receive an email saying so-and-so is registered to to visit on this particular day. Right? Well, the idea would be that the president of the chapter soon after getting that email sends a personal email to that visitor and also on that email they copy on the email other members in the chapter that are complementary to the visitor and then purpose of all that is 1 to let the visitor know how excited they are to meet them to to give them any instructions. They they may need to you know, show up but yep. To really let the visitor know that these other members could be great power Partners together with that visitor and so a great success story. I'd like to share is about three years ago as a director. One of my roles was placing visitors helping visitors find Chapters and I was working with one professional and his business was custom mens clothing and because of his schedule I took it into three different chapters and the third chapter he went to the president at the time Steve level who's the business attorney in the chapter was phenomenal at doing this and so he sent this personal email to this month custom clothing gentleman, and he see see the financial adviser and the family law attorney on on the email who both of them also replied to the custom clothing gentleman saying Thursday, we looks so we look forward to meeting you we too could use help with their own wardrobe and that visitor ended up visiting and a couple of weeks later. He ended wage. Joining and a couple of weeks later. I called them to say to figure out why he picked that chapter over the other two and in his words. He said that that chapter had an unfair Advantage because without one month then, you know connected to the members before they even met them that he wanted to join a group and three years later. He still a member of the group

I'd like to speak to number eleven as well. My Name is money show Josh I'm a professor of education at the University of San Francisco, thank you for your support of Culebra Guy Way this is an important moment for Asian Americans Berkeley one in five Berkeley residents is Asian American and we have a long and vibrant history here but you wouldn't know that from our streets our schools are parks and our buildings where at a historic folks are calling in to advocate for a street in Berkeley to be renamed Della Guy. South Asian immigrant who came to Berkeley over one hundred years ago. Anyhow numbers my name is he I'm releasing cal Grad who graduated back in May of this year there really is sincere excitement among the Berkeley student community when it comes to this renaming, I think especially among students of color in South Asian students in particular were all itching to see ourselves represented such concrete way Pun completely intended Hello good evening, Mr Mayor and City Council members leading was Michelle McGowan, and calling in from Washington DC and on behalf of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in historic preservation I'm here to support the naming of callow. Guy Way to the best of our knowledge. The City of Berkeley has little to no landmarks, monuments or markers recognizing the historical and cultural contributions of Asian Americans or Pacific Islander I for. One and he goes for the Berkeley South Asian radical history walking tour speaking in support of caliber guy way you heard from just a couple of US tonight while others are watching the live streaming APP station of your boat stories of club often ignored by Berkeley institutions, and yet we know that telling of bigger more inclusive history of Berkeley has the power to transform. US and our city, a clever guy we allows us to both honor her and reconcile difficult moments for history. Thank you for voting in favor of caliber guy way giving us something to celebrate during these especially tough times that last person you heard was Bernales Gosh one of the main organizers of this renaming campaign I called her up to learn more I am Barnett Lico. Im One of the creators of the Berkeley Salvation. Walking tour so I would Tim South Asian South Asian American. I grew up in India and moved to renounce five i. you she her pronounce. So we've been doing Berkeley Salvation Radical History Walking tour since twenty twelve and Iran these tourists with my partner honor Van Chatterjee. Through the tours, we take a disappearance in groups of about twenty around the city of Berkeley and make stops at places that are of historical importance South Asian Americans, and we tell stories of resistance in. That happened in the City of Berkeley and those histories go back over a hundred plus years. So we share stories of cure organizing youth organizing after nine eleven, stories of feminist and freedom fighters. And we include stories also of oppression not only that our community has faced but also oppressions within our own community say homophobia or caste system. I asked her how she came to learn about caliber guy and organized this campaign under about an I are always looking for things that happened at Berkeley and trying to understand what the lives of people who live here. especially in the early nineteen hundreds was like when we started doing the tours, we definitely didn't know enough about caliber guy maybe a few years ago. I heard her oral history on the South Asian American digital archives website and I came across both the video and early history where she mentioned Berkeley and that immediately caught my Attention. But there's an extra factor that makes her relationship to Berkeley particularly unique. Her main relationship to the city was that she was turned away from the city and I think that district people up in trying to understand why is it in Berkeley team after caliber guy when she may be never even lived here
How to Build Your VCP on Zoom
"I'm Priscilla rice and I'm coming to see you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of being eye doctor Ivan misner. Hello, Ivan, How are you? And where are you? I love going back to the how are you and where are you personally? Thank you so much. And as I mentioned in last week's podcast, we're going back to it because you know, I am dead. Traveling. Yeah, it's virtual but I am traveling all over the world. And so we thought we would incorporate it back in by at least mentioning one of the places that I am Live this week. I am live in the United Kingdom for a large Regional event. I've done a lot of recorded visits around the world, but I'm doing a live event in the UK. So we have an interesting topic today out of build your vcp on zoom. And those of you who don't know V C P stands for visibility credibility profitability and we have someone as a guest who is now the reigning Champion for the number of guests visits on being a podcast. This is her eight visits is Tiffany Kellogg and Tiffany entered the entrepreneurial World in two thousand and three. She's enjoyed being able to help her class make money save time have fun. She spends her time traveling across the globe before covid-19 housings of entrepreneurs. Now, she probably does it virtually like I do and whether sharing her expertise wage, Southern Accent on referral marketing networking maximizing your time Tiffany will knock your socks off in with any audience with their fun and entertaining presentations. Now you have a you understand the Sox branding thing that happenes got go to episode number 489 about her colorful socks, you know, he was amazing socks and was funny about that is if you looked at my song it's all black all my socks. So she's very colorful. She's the author of several books and we have her back here today to talk about vcp. Welcome back Tiffany. Thank you so much I have and I'm supposed to be here. You're going to talk about three things how to be seen what to say what not to do. If we have time. We got a bonus round. So talk to us about that and how it fits in vcp job interesting thing where we've switched to Zim and we've been here six months or so now and I think we have to keep in mind that being on camera is now replacing us being in the meeting. So we want to make sure the game Doing everything we can to be moving up the referral confidence curve and down the referral confidence come out. And so the first thing to me is how do you want to be seen and when we only have a short time for a weekly presentation or our featured presentation just a couple of times a year. We want to make sure that we are using the most of the space that we have. So many people are watching the zoom meeting with you on gallery. So you're only a couple inches high. So you really want to think about bringing your energy. I think you have to be more energetic on Zoom than you actually do in person wage. Do you think doctor my eyes? Are you finding that? You have to kind of take it up a notch on camera Coney Island Tiffany? Yeah, I think so. And I think if I remember that like gestures and gestures, you tied my hands. I must be Italian somewhere because if you tied my hands you couldn't speak. I think it's really important to make sure that your hands are included in the camera so that you know when you're doing hand gestures Which means you need to tighten it up. You need to bring your hands in a little closer to show that excitement and to show you know, that visually show that you're you're making a point in that sense. Yes, and then I know we're all in like different with our camera is at so for me. I'm like, I would never talk in public with my hands up by my head, but you do want to have people see that girl. I think you want when you're being seen you want to thank can I use props either something visual that we can use. Yes great suggestion. Yeah, and then we also have the virtue backdrops versus the regular background. I think that your goal is you want to be professional dress professional with a professional background whether that's virtual that works for you or I have a zoom Courtney my office. I actually created this about three years ago to where I can easily do zoom and I know it always looks great behind me. Yeah, cuz if you I don't know if you've seen anybody I I've been with the dog. 30 piles of stuff in the background. Yes. It has it's not it's not pretty I don't know what they're thinking that cracks me up though. Have you seen the new jersey and I assume background that's got me standing off on the left. So I see them because people take screenshots and I'm tagged on Facebook page actually being in a photograph when it's just me as a backdrop, which is just cracks me up. That is hysterical. The last thing I want to say about being seen is make sure that you have your name spelled properly first and last name, maybe even your company name labeled with you and the zoom box. I was visiting a chapter and somebody was listed as dads iPhone off. Oh God. Okay. Yeah. That's that's a problem. You don't want the first thing we want to make sure is we want to be seen the second thing. I think it's very important for us is what time To say I think Matt now more than ever we have to make sure we're very concise with our message and we like to use the saying be specific to be terrific. So during your weekly and featured presentation you wanted to ask you definitely want to make sure that you are specific about that ideal referral or the ideal referral source, and I think that when were sharing if you can use success stories, that is so impactful. We like to say stories sell War facts just tell so anytime you can tell us successes that you created for your clients. It's makes it easy for your fellow chapter members to refer you. Can I add one thing to that but we're telling because I think it's really important don't retell a story relive a story The more you can relive life, you know, really think about your experience there and do your best to re limit as you tell that story. It makes for better storytelling

Kamla Harris is an open born Howard educated lawyer legislator former district attorney of San Francisco and Attorney General of California in Twenty Twenty Democratic presidential candidate. She is the daughter of immigrants who met during the civil rights era Berkley Hello Bay area shout out Bay area and her mother's from Indian. Her father's from Jamaica so welcome to Asian enough senator. It's great to be with you so I'm going to take. Take the first question, and we're just GONNA. Jump right into it so in your memoir. You talked about how your mother made. Conscious choices about raising you and your sister is black woman, though with strong and unquestionable connections to Indian culture. How did she do that? Tell us more about that. Well, so I mean it's complicated, and and probably a lot deeper more complex than we have time for, but I'll try You know she arrived in the US. When she was nineteen years old. She was the eldest of my grandparents. Children and you know an Asian cultures that. She wanted to become a scientist. She wanted to cure cancer, so she went to her father as the eldest child, and it set up by WANNA. Go and I study in what is considered to be one of the best schools for science. I WANNA go to UC Berkeley, and Mike Grandfather it now. This is his eldest daughter, and this is in the late nineteen fifties. Said okay. Follow your dreams. He was very progressive. So my mother flew this. When transient ENA national flights were really very rare, and she arrived in Berkeley California alone. And began her studies, and because my grandfather was really an advocate for India's independence, he was really a extraordinary person, and really always fighting for democracy. And Justice and so immediately. Then of course, my mother was naturally attracted to the civil rights movement that was blossoming or occurring in the bay area and Met My father, and so instead of going back to India had been the plan to have you know what would have been an arranged marriage? She met my father and had a love marriage, and that through my sister and me and my mother understood you know she was just conscious of race. She understood what these things meant. And she knew that in America that her daughters would be treated as for better and for worse as black women and black. Black children and she raised us with a sense of pride about who we were who we are, but never with a false choice, right? It was never to the exclusion of of always also being very proud and very active in terms of our Indian culture as well, but she and she understood what America was at the time, and who America is, and and the struggles that people face in America, and so that's that's it in a nutshell. But there were never any false choices you know. We grew up in the black community and learned that you can cook Okra with mustard seeds, or with dry shrimp in and spicy sausages. Did you learn any of those recipes you. Did you keep any of those? You know my will, so I mean? My mother was an extraordinary cook, and as was my grandmother, my aunt, my. Is the. It's the name for your. Your mother's younger sister basically means younger mother, and she thankfully still with us. She and she's a great cook. Indian cooking is very complicated. It's like a lot of Asian cooking. There are a lot of different spices and she was such a good cook, and my aunt is such a good cook so I never really had to learn how to make Indian food, but I have been slowly teaching myself how to do that. But my mother was also. She loved good foods, so she would make. Incredible Italian meals. She would make you know I. Remember US making bows and. Tons I. Remember s making you know. She loved to make barbecue. It was just it was a ECLECTIC, but I think it was just was a very universal I in many ways she loved cultures, and and and she loves to cook.
Growing Weed in the Garden with Johanna Silver
"Joanna. Silver is a gardener. Writer and editor formerly the Gordon Editor at Sunset magazine. She is a regular contributor to Martha Stewart Living. Better homes and gardens and the San Francisco Chronicle the author of the old dry garden on the garden and legacy of famed California plants woman. Ruth Bancroft this week. Joanna joins us to talk about her newest book growing weed in the garden. A no fuss seed to stash guide to outdoor cannabis cultivation out now from Abrahams press cannabis in California has been legal for medical use since nineteen ninety-six and in November of Two Thousand Sixteen California. Voters approved the adults use of Marijuana Act to legalize the recreational use of cannabis the use sale and possession of cannabis over a certain level of THC remains illegal under federal US law that said according to a recent report on NPR thirty three US states currently allow for some form of sale and consumption of marijuana and of those more than twenty states have designated the cannabis industry as essential during the corona virus outbreak from her shelter in place with her young family in Berkeley California. Joanna joins us today to shine a brighter light on the often confusing. Growing we'd as Gardiner's welcome Joanna. Thank you so nice to be here back with you. The last time we spoke we were speaking primarily about your first book the Bold Dry Garden and this new book is something of a An adventurous kind of Tangent. Or like offshoot from your original. Garden writing work. I want to start though with your current relationship to plants and the garden world both personal and Professional Joanna. What do you do everyday tell listeners? More about who you are and what you're up to. It is so nice to be talking to you again even just anticipating the conversation that I would be having with. You got me just like thinking about life and anyway thank you. Just thank you for having me. Thank you for making all the room to talk to people about about exactly this. Their relationship to plants I am home now as you know. All non-essential workers are and I am doing the very essential work of raising my son who turns three in July and In a non pandemic situation spends most of his day in a share So we gardened some But it was more like gardening light and now that we're home together. I am gardening heavy and doing with him I salt. I was already going to have a vegetable garden this year. I was already scaling back on the. We'd I'm only really growing at this year to continue to write about it It's a it's a really fun plant to grow et Cetera et CETERA. But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now.

How I Built Resilience
"Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition so since the pandemic began retail sales have dropped massively across the country is customers are staying home but cliff. Bars actually seen a spike in demand because their bars are really popular among healthcare workers. I spoke to Gary Erickson and kick Crawford from their home in Berkeley California. The company's been distributing cliff bars to doctors and nurses while also trying to boost morale among their employees to me a little bit about cliff bar. What's been the situation for you guys? We're lucky you know. We're an essential food products. We on March twelve was the day we decided to close. Our office is just in one day. All of a sudden. We're like we're not in the awful. How do we run a business when people are are not in the office running into each other and having meetings and and coffee together out trying to throughout so we have been adopting ever since? Yeah it's it's interesting because we have like certain to businesses going on we have our office business and then we have our essential business are two bakeries one in Indiana twin falls. Where making sure that everybody's safe unhealthy. It's really different to have to do this right now. What's crazy so your headquarters. Essentially in Emoryville is closed down right now but you also. Your manufacturing plants are still operating because presumably. There's a demand for cliff bar. People are kind of want to keep things that that are shelf stable and lasts for a while I guess is. Have you seen a big increase demand for cliff bars redid and we did? There was a pretty good spike. And I We were maybe in third place behind the paper and Sanitizer But it's calmed down. You know I think the the object has mellowed out a little bit. But we're still there's demand demand is high and also you know we know that our product is a really essential food for healthcare workers. So far we've given out the first art march three point six million bars to food banks and healthcare workers frontline and then on another where on the second round. Brunell committed another three million through programmer calling Baked with love incentive gratitude Gary when you have been in crises in the past certainly with this business and when you think about it from a leadership perspective. What kind of advice could you give to somebody who is a leader? Even if it's a small business and they're kind of dealing with what's going on right now. I helped would sell duster couple. Things one is Don't be afraid to ask. Question has no answer Kind of off of Wendell Berry mad farmer manifesto of his about four decades ago. I mean we are asking questions every single data we have. We don't have any answer to but you can't be afraid to ask those questions and then if you don't have an answer today maybe tomorrow we've I can't even count. How many of questions. We've had to ask that. Don't have an answer. Maybe one could be like What are we? What is it GonNa look like when we go back to the office like when we first asked the office when is can happen? And what are we going to be walking around with right vase mouths on? And Are we gonNA be social distancing when we're back in the office and how's it going to work people you know. Eat and you know we. We don't have an answer for that right now but we're talking about and then the other part of it is just inattentive. You have to be hyper attentive to everything every day minute by minute hour by hour day by day and went and if your attention to something that comes up and we have people emailing US sane. Have you thought of this? What about this? How come this does happen? We're not doing this. Then you connoisseur out that you have to go to like how are we going to doubt and then as soon as you can't take some action and don't sit on things because we don't have time to sit on things we've been making decisions where we have to act now or tomorrow and we as sorry? We're screwed so adapt and take some action. I'm curious I mean. Obviously you are a bigger company much beer company than than a lot of the vast majority businesses in the United States. But if you think about this crisis and this is a little bit tricky because it's a sensitive word to use but as an opportunity are there ways to think about opportunities or to kind of focus on on the other side like how I mean because even with your business you're GonNa Change. They're going to be things about your products that change when when we come out the other side of this question. We don't have an answer to yes. Go ahead well. I mean I'd like to take a shot at it. I think long you know it. Does you double down in refocus on the things that matter for us? I think it's refocused us to consider what's really really important like taking care of our people but also how we work being efficient with our time being creative looking at a problem imagining scenarios. That don't exist yet like what if this happens. What how are we GONNA REACT? It's really made us much. Nimble in some ways yeah for sure. this is a question from about supply chain which. I think is is interesting. How are you dealing with your supply chain and and are you looking ahead to because it's you rely on nuts and on oats and on a variety of ingredients mostly domestic but some imported? So how are you kind of dealing with? The the possibility chain will be disrupted. That's another question that we don't have a full answer to because we don't know you know we're hoping that that were on getting close to the other side but it's still going to be of months we right now good and because we were in that essential category so we're not super worried about supply chain but were daily back to the daily attentive to it and always kind of ask our suppliers like we're good right. We're right and we do have our frontier team on our side chain. Every morning we we meet together with recalled the coveted nineteen task force. So were meeting every morning with this task. Force made up of ood manufacturing lead our legal team our HR team Our community team and our communications team. And we're we're doing that. So we can keep track of all these things and so we have teams under them that are tracking supply chain all the cliff bars that are going to the stores are. GonNa want in the future inside of balancing. That out is just a big rash or is this going to happen. You know slowly and then you know what level are being of yet but it's interesting that this is a time. This is the first time that our business models to kind of a full test like it's easy when you're not easy but so we have this five lines business model you know sustain Your Business. Our brands where people are our community and our planet and it's worked but now we're in the crisis trying to keep this model ally We're not just a successful company over here. Supporting our community and giving thousands of hours of community service not no work in the fire and we're trying to continue keeping those values in tap and living values so so far so good but Has Not Been Easy.

Water why we swim is her latest book which Texas from Ponds Pools to surfers racers and a few who have survived icy currents Bonnie Soy who writes frequently for the New York Times in California Sunday magazine. Join just for more home in Berkeley California. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks so much for having me Scott. You begin with an amazing story about a man whose name I will not chance to even try and say March Eleven nineteen eighty-four what happened on this planet. Good Liquor Thorson. He's an Icelandic fishermen and fishing trawler with his crew. It's calm waters it's cold it's forty one degrees and the boat overturns with forty one degree water within twenty to thirty minutes we die from hypothermia but he did not everyone else did and he ended up swimming six hours and when he finally got to the hospital the doctors weren't able to discern his heartbeat or read his temperature on the thermometer but he didn't show any signs of hypothermia and he was only a little bit dehydrated. He was a strong swimmer certainly but was he also saved by his own biology. He was like the story very much. Because it is this the distillation of what makes swimming so special for humans. We have to learn how to swim. we're not born knowing how to do it instinctively and yet there are sort of traces of that evolutionary past still within us that our evolutionary past that came from the sea and so with good liquor for. Thorson turns out that his body fat was two to three times normal human thickness and more solid and so he resembled a Marine Mammal. More than terrestrial mammal. And that saved him. Did you grow up feeling? Pull into the even. If it was only Jones Beach in New York I did. I mean my family origin story is at my parents met no swimming pool in Hong Kong. We grew up with swimming family and so we grew up at Jones beach in the pool. Lifeguards swim team. I just always remember feeling more comfortable and happy in the water actually than on land. I mean there's just a sense of magic that you get from being in the water and buoyancy that you just don't have on land you in this book talk to swimmers all over the world right nearby you though you you swim San Francisco Bay without a wet suit and there are people including I gather you who believe that's actually good for you in all ways it can be. I mean I have also talked to scientists and researchers who say cardiovascular risk. Don't go into sudden shock cold water because it could stop your heart that aside a wr decided there are benefits to cold water immersion. And there's been quite a bit of research in recent years where your dopamine levels go up in your over time that your cardiovascular system is strengthened and you know there are people there are things that we knew from across cultures around the world that there was a water cure there. Was you know jumping in cold? Water was good for you and jumping in hot water and then jumping into cold water and so we didn't know why exactly in the science kinda starting to catch up. What is this Brown fat you talk about in this book. Well this was really interesting. I did not know about Brown fat until I started swimming with a Dolphin Club swimmers in San Francisco Bay and so I went to ucsf to talk to the foremost researchers in Brown fat and it turns out that mammals are born with two kinds of white fat which we all know about the energy stores of our bodies and Brown fat which actually Burns and produces heat energy. We kind of start to lose it as we get older but there are ways to do what's called the Browning of white fat which is to kind of turn it into energy burning tissue. That fat is called Beige Fat. And so what? Kind of encourages. The development of beige fat is cold water exposure and exercise among other things. But those have been proven to be causing this change in our bodies. Wonder if you have any words for people who aren't able to swim these days you know. The water is a draw for us no matter what and so even if you can't get in the water if you can walk near it can look at. It can see it can You know have some what a wall Nichols calls domestic waters in your house and you know. Take about the shower. Just look at imagery watches surf movie. I mean those things. Make a difference for our souls and our the way our bodies and brains work. Click we respond to those set points in the environment and even if we can't get in the waters right now you know the ocean will be waiting for us.

Some states forgo Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples' Day
"Christopher Columbus arrived in the Bahamas five hundred twenty seven years ago this week unleashing a brutal genocide that killed tens of millions of native people across the hemisphere well cities and states across the United States are acknowledging this devastating history by rejecting the federal holiday of Columbus day and celebrating indigenous peoples day instead to honor centuries of indigenous resistance Alaska Maine Minnesota New Mexico North Carolina South Dakota Vermont in Wisconsin of all officially recognized indigenous peoples day so more than a hundred thirty cities and counties from Los Angeles San Francisco and Dallas to smaller places like living sting Kentucky and Harpers ferry West Virginia last week Washington DC became one of the latest to recognize the holiday Washington DC the district of Columbia takes its name from Columbus in a statement before the vote DC council member at large David Grosso said quote Columbus day was officially designated as a federal holiday in nineteen thirty seven despite the fact Columbus did not discover North America despite the fact millions of people were already living in North America upon his arrival in the Americas and despite the fact the Columbus never set foot on the shores of the current United States Columbus and slave colonized mutilated a MasterCard thousands of indigenous people in the Americas he set the movement to replace Columbus day gain momentum in nineteen ninety two the five hundredth anniversary of Columbus's arrival when Berkeley California became the first city to make the change earlier protests inspired the movement including the annual national day of mourning and Plymouth Massachusetts held on thanksgiving to challenge the myth of peaceful coexistence between native people in the English settlers the programs well today native American communities are celebrating indigenous people stay across the country with sunrise ceremonies at New York city's Randall's island to California's Alcatraz island the former prison and site at the historic native American occupation in protest against US treatment of indigenous people fifteen years ago well for more we go to Iago we Henning oaks she is snipe clan Mohawk of the Haudenosaunee confederacy and executive director of the American Indian community house here in New York City we welcome you to democracy now it's great to have you with us on can you talk about the significance of this day we're here in New York there is a statue to Christopher Columbus in Columbus circle and it is not one of those cities that is recognizing indigenous peoples day well this day indigenous peoples day is it's indigenous peoples day every day for for me and my community you know we have to fight colonization and and try to maintain our identity every single day because it's been stripped away from us Terrel efforts and I guess just what what we've been through and what's been taken from us from Columbus and his crusade at the American Indian community house one of my goals is to to sort of reclaim space our culture and and find a place and presence within society today so for us it's it's not just a day to celebrate Austin's a date to remind everybody else to to take responsibility and step up and recent things like the doctrine of discovery you wrote about the native American population in New York and the New York Daily News articles what New York city's indigenous people deserve you explain that among cities New York has the largest population of indigenous peoples can you explain the diversity of this population well from what we know at the community house we represent up to seventy three different tribal nations in New York City and based on the census there's a hundred and eighteen thousand native Americans in New York City overall the entire native population in the US seventy percent of the natives of the native population are urban natives and New York City being the largest population of all of all urban natives so for us to be here and to not have a permanent space or on a native center or on any sort of equity and Justy raced out of society and culture it's it's it's a tough time for us right now right now it's like we're fighting every single day with the system and we're not heard of you know but days like this indigenous peoples day as a reminder to everybody else that we're still here can you explain what the matter how to fund is all of the matter how to find is great so that was a few people on what what we call settlers using a language if you visit the site at Manhattan fund dot org they approach the community house and worked with a few of our board members and try to figure out a way that they could contribute to the native American community in New York City and together with all their good minds they came up with this find ominous a sort of campaign where you can donate you could donate five dollars ten dollars or a larger amount on you can do this online you could make a pledge which would be every single month sort of like the Bernie campaign he knowing twenty four dollars a month that one initial investment or it can carry on through the whole year it's that's what it is you speak we are going to run a slide show that was taken yesterday at Randall's island and if you can talk about the ceremonies that are taking place right now as we speak there is sunrise ceremony in both at Randall's island and also Alcatraz across the country fifty and this is the period fifty years ago of uprising well this is a big here fifty years their fifty year anniversary for Alcatraz is the fifty year anniversary for the American Indian community house with all their ceremonies we celebrate life we celebrate what creation has given to us we celebrate on the waters the earth the moon the stars the sky's the animals all things that we depend on a need and co exist with equally on an Alcatraz from what I know they are they are taken canoes and they're going to the visit the island and they're having their ceremony there in unison with the ceremonies that are happening here also the doctrine of discovery if you could explain what that is last year representatives of indigenous groups in the US and Canada went to the Vatican to request or contraction of the doctrine of discovery explain well that was that's the beginning of it all in fourteen ninety three that's when the doctrine of discovery was was created hope Alexander the sex of all yeah yeah and what that does is that gives the minion for white men or for Christians over non Christians rather indigenous people us if you're not Christian if you're not Christian people you're not considered humans or there's nobody there occupying that land or own can we basically can't have title to land if for indigenous and non Christian and that's all I'm always been the root cause of all of this right now colonization that's the number one tool finally the American Indian community house that you are the head of its also the fiftieth anniversary yeah explain its origins and what you're doing well fifty years ago on they're basically doing battle in the same fight where we are today we're trying to reclaim our culture were trying to maintain our presence and trying to exercise exercise our strength and authority for the future and trying to regain title also and one of those ways is down for me one of the directions I want to focus on is bring attention to the doctrine of discovery well throughout the past fifty years it's been a little bit of a struggle there was some support and now there's none fifty years later on the community house is in a place where we have little to no funding ninety seven percent of our of our own funding was taken from us in two thousand seventeen by by the federal government sold so here we are today which coincides exactly with the time that indigenous people around the country have been leading the struggle against extractive industries and yeah are in the forefront of the battle for around the climate crisis yeah yeah were a threat the moment things like the doctrine of discovery I rescinded fat challenges all title of land in a story well I want to thank you so much for being with us Iago a hand that folks is snipe clan the Mohawk of the Haudenosaunee confederacy executive director of

Following Kamala Harris' Criticism, Joe Biden Defends His Civil Rights Record
"The exchange everybody is talking about from the debate last night is the exchange between joe biden and kamala harris in which she unfairly attacked him in the most cynical possible fashion she started off by suggesting that joe biden joe i really believe you're not a racist okay when somebody says i believe you're not a racist you know what's coming next which is all the reasons why she thinks he's a racist should that last night it was really cynical she then suggested that his lack of support for forced busing in nineteen seventy seven that this was reflective of a deep underlying racial animus that joe biden that cruel old man would have stopped little gung kamala from going to a school across town that's joe biden stood in front of that bus like george wallace at a school house door and stopped young comma from being able to attend the school of her dreams in berkeley california is bunch of nonsense cynical nonsense no one's still comma harass you know it's funny we're talking about forced busing forced busing was originally designed to achieve racial balance in the schools to achieve integration in the schools today there's more defacto segregation in american schools than there was back in the nineteen eighties so should we do forced busing now like kamla do you propose to forcibly bus tens of thousands of american school children across town to various schools both crappy a non crappy do you expect the parents won't then remove their kids from those schools do expect that will lead to a rise in charter schools or in private schools or home schooling what exactly proposing the beauty of comal harris does here is that she doesn't make policy proposal because if she did it would be unpopular instead she just implies that if you don't support a broad non non specific policy proposal that she apparently likes then you must have hated her when she was Child. She attacked Biden, Biden doesn't have a good response for it. i do not believe you are a racist and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but i also believe and personal and i was actually very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of grace in this country and his second so there she's already being dishonest that's not what your biden said which biden said is i didn't like these guys i had to negotiate with them 'cause i'm in the senate now come on harrison's a radical she's never negotiated with anybody on the other side is one of the more dislike members of the of the senate particularly like there's certain senators like cory booker who has friends on the other side of the aisle i'm not aware that kamala harris has any on the other side of the aisle she's one of those cynical radical players in the senate when she suggests that biden is fulsomely praising segregationist it's nonsense you'll hear biden respond to that in a moment then she gets to her real attack which is that biden was going to prevent her from going to school when she was six it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing and you know there was a little girl in california who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me so i will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly as a torney general california i was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on Okay. shifts this right so she she gets a huge round of applause oh the first of all there are a couple of things worthy of note one she says in that clip we can't have an intellectual debate about this i thought that's what policy debates were were where we talk about the costs and benefits of particular proposals not the innate morality of the proposal not the implication that you are more moral than the other guy for proposing something that is completely unworkable which is what she's doing right here and then she doesn't shift to and that is why as attorney general and presidential candidate and senator i have always supported forced busing of children right that would be the logical corollary would for would be for her to say you know you didn't support for busing i do an enforced busing is the way we aren't as we ought to be forcing kids in public schools from different areas to get on buses and we ought to be bussing them forty five minutes here so that we can achieve my ideal racial balance that's our she goes notice instead she goes to and that's why i support body cameras that is the biggest non sequitur that is a huge first of all i support body but it's such a huge non-sequitur right you would expect her to say okay and that's why i support forced busing she doesn't so she's actually saying here's a policy that i may or may not support but if you don't support your racist because you're white and when i was young i could only go to school because of forced busing even though i can't really say whether i support forced busing now i like body cameras notice the it it's a clever move to biden has no response because he's on a democratic debate stage and everybody is pandering on this debate stage he can't really say to harris listen i want you and i always wanted people to be able to go to the best school possible because he didn't support school vouchers for example or the ability to move between communities on a balance area but not a fourth based on a voluntary basis to go to a better public school he's never believed in that so he can't actually say that then he can't say force busing was a bad policy not approved by the vast majority of americans because then she'll say are you saying that i shouldn't have been able to go to a better school when i was a kid right she's demagoguing the issue and there's no way for him of to get out of it the only thing he could do here is say listen if you're suggestion is that my opposition to a particular set of badly written policies in the nineteen seventies makes me racially insensitive you're knowing my entire history you say that you were a kid and you were affected by these policies guess who is fighting to open up civil rights in america this and eventually biden gets to this answer it just takes them too long and he doesn't look good doing it so here's a little bit more of the exchange You have been invoked your chance to restart. this characteristic my position across the board i did not praise racist that is not true number one number two if we want to have this campaign litigated who supports civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a prosecutor i came out i left a good law firm to become a public defender when in fact when in fact when the fact my city was inflamed because of the sausage dr king number one number two as the u._s. as me as the vice president is states i worked with a man who in fact we worked very hard to see to it we don't with these issues in a major major way the fact is that in terms of bussing the busing i never would have been able to go to school the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council that's fine that's one of the things argued for that we should not be we should be break down these lines but so the bottom line here is look everything i've done in my career i ran because of civil rights i continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and those civil rights by the way include not just african americans but the

And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing, and there was a little girl in California, who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me. my position across the board i did not praise racist that is not true number one number two if we want to have this campaign litigated who support civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a prosecutor came out and i left a good law firm to become a public defender when in fact when in fact my city was inflamed because of the sas nations dr king the fact is that in terms of the busing i never would have been able to go school the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council that's fine that's one of things argued for that we should not be we should be breaking down these lines Do you agree today that you were wrong oppose busing in America? Then do you agree did not? In America, what I toast is bussing ordered by the department of education. That's. of states to into knowing schools in america i was part of the class to integrate berkeley california public schools almost two decades after brownie board of education because your city council may decision of recession Session. Because. History. Fail to preserve the civil rights. I want you to realize what you just heard. That was the debate. The democratic debate sponsored by the Democratic National Committee. Debating busing and race. Between Senator Kamala Harris and vice president Biden. argue with each other i think kamala harris won the day on that debate by the way clearly against a vice president biden i thought it was a i don't know if it'll be a fatal knockout punch but it was a big punch but they were debating this and joe biden could not get himself to say what kamala harris wanna to saying she was that young girl and i thought that was a brilliant line by the way no matter what position you want you can argue the merits of these positions but the delivery of that line the timing of that line as a litigator some of those court in our use cases around the country and other cases that was a well delivered well-crafted line jordan i think politically though it shows what's going on inside the democratic party and also shows the history of the democratic racist party all his friends that keeps talking about the cory booker was upset about and kamala harris was upset about they went republicans they were democrats who were who are who are these southern democrats would work across the aisle with and he was proud to do it even though they were nasty guys and and but ultimately we wish freetown's was still around he said that south carolina democratic event for tallinn's it was again a leading advocate for yeah segregation until very late in his career to very lateness grimace thematic come to jesus moment if you will but very late in their careers joe biden is reeling from this today his supporters are questioning whether he's got the got the goods to get past this this is the vice president who served with the first black president the united states and he is being you know she saying you're racist but you supported racist policies yeah so i've got our director of policy at the american center for law and justice where national international public interest law firm were involved in a lot of issues our director of policy is professor harry hutchison law professor specialising law and economics religious liberty civil rights understands that professor hutchinson let me start with you on this one i listen to that dialogue i think kamala harris clearly won the day but what it speaks to a larger issue i think well it does and i think jordan touched on it but first let me say that when democrats bicker president trump wins i think that's important secondly it's important not to forget the history of the democratic party in the united states and so if you look back to president woodrow wilson what did he do what is singular accomplishment he re segregated the civil service commission in the united states so essentially he took the position that african americans as government workers should indeed be second class citizens in addition to all of that of course he strongly supported eugenics he strongly supported getting rid of the unfit and a lot of his ideas more base simply and unmistakably on one thing and one thing only race and racial segregation so what we are witnessing in this debate between kamala harris and joe biden is the relitigate action of democratic history their support for racist policies their support for you jenex their support for segregation and it is a clear and unmistakable record of subordination and suppression this is a history that is not discussed but it is in fact the historical truth of what was going on so when kamala harris what after joe biden on this jordan she had the right to do it because the history was there and joe biden participated in it now it is he participated basically arguing so everybody understands what joe biden was arguing states rights republican says that it's a national disaster if joe biden says it it's his defenses and by the way this is the other fallacy of his defense as some of the does litigators his argument that this is a local school board decision and kamala harris school was allowed to be integrated because the local school board did is ignorant the fact that it took federal court orders in states that were having the segregation issue to actually put this into play in other words to have the schools integrators when do it jump by congress run to it and he praises his friends that he says we'll see i was able to work across the aisle with racist that is not a good message in and twenty nineteen won't be in twenty twenty this idea that i could work across the aisle with my fellow democrat racist because his harry said he was supporting legistlation that was putting in those differences that there's twin black and white and treating civil servants differently based on their race and so re segregating a federal department that is the joe by that is who the democrats think they should have debating donald trump or even running for president united states i think a lot of those candidates debate school busing all you want but the kamala harris had the story which was what about all the little girls like me who didn't get this because you joe biden and your friends that you loved appraise talk about
Who should take the hit when identity theft occurs?
"I live in Berkeley, California. It's a peaceful place for an American city in twenty years. I've never so much notice the police station never occurred to me that I even needed to know where it was. Yes. Zoe. But now here I am inside the place surrounded by cinder block walls, in pictures of legendary police officers in across the table from me, there's a living legend officer Joe do. So I'm going to tell you what happened to me. Okay. And why I'm here so beginning last year, we started to get calls at eight in the morning from CitiGroup big back. And I was getting the kids out the door for breakfast in the phone ring. And this happened ten times twenty times three times fifty times. I mean, it was just like harassment, and they said, I the money, and it was absolutely bizarre. Because I didn't never any any business with CitiGroup. I mean, no credit cards. No, nothing. But he said we had like fifteen thousand dollars of outstanding loans. I just wanna say that again. So you hear it city group said I owed them fifteen thousand dollars. And so Finally, I said look quit calling us just driving crazy in the mornings, and whatever they stop. Calling. Okay. The next thing. That happens is I got a note from American Express saying my credit score has collapsed because I have Wellstone a debt to city group. So American Express call me and says we're gonna put a limit on your account because you're like, oh, scores declined. And I call them and said, well, how's this happen at a, you know, this a credit aggregate name experien- has sent a report saying you've got some bad debts. I didn't even know what experience was or what it did as it turns out there a bunch of companies that make their money by gathering up, whatever anyone Bank or credit card company has to say about you. And then spreading the word to the others. So that if one Bank thinks you owe them money all the others. See you as a problem? Experience one of those companies and odd become one of those problems someone claiming to be me opening a credit card account with CitiBank in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. And he gave as his address street in Miami. But it's a street that doesn't even exist credit. Limit was fifteen thousand somehow he managed to borrow sixteen thousand four hundred and six dollars and repaint. None of it fifteen thousand four hundred and six dollars when I called experience to say how come you have this on my credit report? They said, well, we can't do anything about it to city group said you of this money. So I called city and city roof said they didn't know who I was and at no record of my social security number. We was just a mass. I was I was in stuck in on hold for hours. And they gave me no joy. I mean, no joy at all. Finally, experien- tells me that I need to file an identity theft comp-. Plate with the FTC the Federal Trade Commission, which I did. And they said I had to go come to the police station and file report for them to take seriously my claim that my entity had been stolen. So to summarize myself, just they're a big New York Bank hands fifteen sixteen grand to someone pretending to be me. Michael Lewis, then some credit agency broadcasts, a total. I about my behavior. And now I need to drive down to my local police station and bother a local cop. So that's why I'm here. I wanna file a police report for identity theft. And I wanna ask you a couple of questions about before. I do it. The first is how often do you all have people filing identity reports with the police very frequently. Also, it's not this is not where it's not completing common owner. But that isn't the question. I most wanted an answer to I'd been doing another question for so long. It's almost hard to put it into words. I mean, just as a lot. Horseman officer. Does it not strike you as strange that? I've never had any do with either one of these parties, and they wrote me into this. And and it's my problem. All of a sudden, it seems to me that CitiGroup should be filing some sort of complaint with the police, not me, and I shouldn't have to deal with this at all. It's very odd that its frame this way, the whole notion of identity theft noticed I'm still me for the first time officer la- do is looking a little dubiously. Like, I'm crossing some wine. Like, I'm gonna start asking him for his opinions about animal rights or about the local native American burial ground, somehow wound up under the parking lot of a fish restaurant cups. Don't control the rules of the game. They just enforce them. The very idea that I should have to spend a minute having to deal with this seems just a little odd. I mean, if you take it out of the financial sector, and you say I managed to persuade Zoe that I'm Audrey in. I get her lemme ten grand. Arteries, my producer on this episode Zoe is my associate producer. They're here at the station with me recording just standing there in their headphones. Expressionless dead. I'd. Is always not gonna have any ability to disrupt my life or get me. I mean, it's an odd thing that the financial system has now put this sort of strain on police resources. It seems to me. So let me put it as a question. If people are coming in filings reports taking your time and all the rest is never struck. You that seem to little crazy to have the police in the middle of this to answer it. It's interesting in the fact that it's a different type of victimization, right? I don't think of myself as a victim. But if you want me to be one, I want you to be. But it turns out I have to be the victim. At least if I want him to file his report, if I'm not a victim that I'm to blame for whatever fake Michael Lewis has been doing at his fake address. Here's the funny thing I feel victimized not by whoever that guy dude wasn't Miami. But by city Rupe like they present themselves as someone who has been victimized by essentially, my of inability to prevent anybody from stealing my identity. But really if they'd never done the dopey thing in the first place, we wouldn't even be here. And that's the thing that that kinda gets under my skin is that the financial sector has figured out a way to shift the burden of this problem onto people who have nothing to do with the problem. Let me get you a casing, right? I've never had a case number. Can you put me on the boarding generate numbers for thirty five to nineteen? Numbers me talk. Just like another language. Six zero one six. Thank you. Like, I. So I'm gonna give you a business karma the case number and also many give you a victim of identity theft family. I already said this, but I'm the real Michael Lewis, and this is against the rules a show about the decline of the human referee in American life, and what that's doing to our idea of

I've learned the psycho neurological realities of limping and how I've had to learn to not limp because I've taken millions of steps with my bashed upright hip, and my brain thinks my leg is that long and my other legs that long, and it my brain is telling me to walk properly, you got to walk like that. But it's not true anymore. You had to retrain myself, not to limp entirely neurological. Don't remember how to walk normally is that it. Oh, yeah. I mean that overstates it a little bit. But yeah, my my brain thinks my legs are different lengths, and there's a different pain level. And there is and I keep trying to tell it. No heel toe heel toe. It's fine.
