"bethany" Discussed on Six Degrees of WTF

"Were just like no. This can't happen anymore. So the group said goodbye to mica and moved on in the meantime bethany graduates magnet commod from southwestern university with a b a degree in english and a minor in spanish instead of moving on with her career though she instead moved to grandview missouri the head. It's the home of i hop. She moved up there. Following tyler madan so this two thousand nine and if you remember in two thousand nine we had the big recession and it really hit the midwest very very hard however i opted have this money that they invested in some land in missouri in grandview and it was one hundred twenty five and they were building just kinda compounds. Sounds like waco. They're just building this compound and tyler and bethany established their own chapter within this compound and it was kind of an internship for i hop so basically for five months. You would intern with them. And you were immersed in the bible and work programs you would study the bible eight. Am to four pm. You've ever break and then from six. Pm to midnight you would prey. That's pretty much all you did. There was a women's house in there is immense house. Okay so obviously bethany lived in. The women's tyler. Lived in the men's tyler was in heaven and having well and then tyler started referring to this this program as the community so these two houses that were part of it. This was the community. Bethany was still in love with tyler and finally tyler agreed to go on a day with her and became a couple. they would e- every intention to get married. The community thought it was strange though 'cause they never showed any sort of pda at all. Tyler told them that he wouldn't even kisser until they were engaged. And that came two and a half years later after them dating. Imagine dating someone and you didn't kiss for two and a half years relationship right. So in two thousand ten tyler was still a very big influence at the at the community. He was still continuing to encourage people to cut off ties with their families. And in fact he began insisting that his life purpose was to focus fulltime on the ministry and to begin preaching for a living but of course to do that he needed the other people in the group to support him financially. This is like colt one. Oh one on how you start and i. It's just a nice little group of friends hanging out and talking some harry potter next thing. You know you're living in the women's house so that's summer mica.

"bethany" Discussed on That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

"True right again. It wasn't because i'm like there needed more limit songs that because they existed in were they are. It became clearer like this would be helpful. It would be helpful to have a song without anger. God when you're angry at yes though that you remember actually like corporately biblically. We don't just sang victory. Psalms we seeing how long thumbs saying have you forsaken. Nissan's that's kinda how this came to be an i. I really just see god's kindness in his patients and his generous heart for me in winning me songs to sing. And giving me the privilege to hear really laudable. Things from people that i know and i don't know Because i know that she's at work nana's reading them and i can have confidence in the same way that he's done for me. It's a privilege in it super overwhelming. Sometimes that i am excited. I'm excited to share this. Have this record shared in just incontinent. That he's gonna use it the way he wants. I hope it meets people on those walks down there from town road when their data's dying right. I mean beth when you talk about the album all my questions. What i'm imagining is that there are some of our friends who are listening to this either waiting in the car pool line or at the grocery store or while they're on the treadmill and they are moms or they are friends or they are dad's or anything married single parent non parent and they are thinking. I thought no one knew how dark it could get. Yeah and you're saying you do know. So what's the for someone who was in there. They've experienced to date is their darkest day. What is the hope on the darkest day the hope is that You don't have to pull yourself out of it. Hope is that this is where the good news becomes good news. Not because it changes the feels not because it changes the circumstances that i have been so Motivated morale look at john. Eleven where jesus is by the graveside with his friends. Mary martha as they asking questions and he doesn't answer them. He doesn't answer them. Because he's present and greece lupin about their brother dying. And you see john one you know. No one has seen god but he explained him. Jesus came to show us the image of the invisible. God saas lord. John eleven and john eleven thirty five says jesus wept. So i would say man. It's that shave. One of satan's probably best wise and said july of our culture that our strength is what needs to be in the spotlight and that church in moving towards god in prayer and all of that looks this way it looks like one globally end of the day light. That's shining your dining. You instagram bat. I would just encourage to like examine closer. The gospels examined bible sent in car line. Were off the treadmill or stop with your grocery cart instinct about like he created you and he is not say no to the season that you're in this he didn't he could see what's known she wants to know what he's black just like. You said you're you're saying to god is feels means feel like you're mean in somehow mysteriously on the other side of that conversation that rare that conversation you feel deeper like in a section and safety insecurity with. That's nothing that you did now. You apologize like go look mean what that means in logos right. It's the he does what he promises for those of us. You are in christ. Jesus like he's not gonna leave us. He's not going to let go of us. He's not gonna forget and he's like reading with us interceding for us and so the hope is that this is what the good news is for It's it's for these moment that's right. He's jesus very much applies to depression and addiction and worse in singleness in trauma very much applies to those things. May i've never thought about that phrase way you said it that like these are the days. The good news is for not the easy days i mean. Of course it plays for the days too but these are the days the good news is for. Yes but i cannot wait for people to hear this album. I can't wait for the behavior at this week and just like download it buy it. Give it to all your friends. This feels like one of those that you like go to spotify and you pull the whole album and you just send the link to everybody and go do this this weekend. Just do this this weekend. Thank you i hope. This is the beginning of us getting to chat like this. I am so thankful for you. This is such a helpful conversation. Such a gift. And i did really good. Here's what i didn't do that. I promise you. I would do i apologize. I didn't go so hard on like your old albums. And how i know all of them. I mean all of them if you need me to sing some of the same fries pull up. I'm just going to pull up. My actual favorite imagination is my favourite album. It is and my love. Hasn't grown cold is my all time favorite. Bethany dillon song okay. Thank you so i was out of that song and left it. Tell me why please let us make time for you to tell me why you're so proud of my love is not growing. 'cause i love that song seeking six minutes longer. Something if the songs that i like riding so i think back in bethany dillon days there was such a a push for like we only have one slot for something like that on record kind of a thing and i'm like go record with.

Why Do We Make Assumptions?

"Welcome to the mind. Set for life podcast. Today this is bethany hansen. And i am so glad you are here. We're gonna talk about assumptions today. Have you ever had someone really let you down or expect something of you that you just had no idea about likely that was because a there was poor communication but the there were some assumptions. Either you had an assumption about the other person or they had an assumption about you and that wasn't communicated enough. I've talked for a few weeks now on the mind set for life. Podcast about the ladder of inference. I've never mentioned the letter of inference. So if you listened to episodes seventy eight and seventy nine you're not gonna hear me mention it but that is exactly what i'm talking about. The ladder of inference is this tool. That really tells us what we are thinking. It's interesting because when we think in sort of these steps are brain just flies through it. We don't even realize we're doing it. But the ladder of inference gives us sort of a structure to which we can then slow down think about it and realize where we went wrong in our thinking or where someone else went wrong in their thinking at where we need to fill in the blanks. The crazy thing is a lot of the thoughts in our own ladder of inference. Come from our younger life like our childhood or our youth. We have some experiences as we're growing up or as were young in the world and we draw a conclusion based on those experiences

"And we just wanna honor for on all the parents who have experienced loss. And i wanted to make sure that we had an episode about it just kind of sharing. 'cause there's power in that there's power in and sharing your experience and that's what our guest tells us today and so it's it's a good conversation with her We have bethany on. And she's just so honest and open with us about her fertility journey about the loss that they experienced and so many people can relate We all experience loss in different ways. We all grieve and deal with it in different ways and it doesn't matter at what stage you experience loss as a parent. You're still have the right to grave. You still have the right to experience the emotions that come up for you whether you just got positive pregnancy test and then miscarried right after or had a stillbirth which is completely devastating. I can't even imagine the the emotions that they would go along with that I'm just honored to have the guests on today to talk about the struggles. A lot of people face and A lot of us don't know how to talk about it or don't feel that we can fill that people don't relate to us so it's really great having the conversation that we do. I'm going to dive into the interview. All right around at bethany mcgraff here. And i've known you i was thinking the other day I met you eighteen years ago. Oh my gosh. I know i was like i was sixteen years old so that that was eighteen years ago. So weird. i know. I'm like that's almost twenty years ago. Like how is that possible so bethany through one of my best friends. It's her sister. So i've known you for a very long time through church canada and all of that and just kind of follow your journey along so i was thinking about this month of july. It's called bereaved parents months. And they talk about loss and holding space for people who have experienced that and trying to think of. Who do i know who who has experienced loss. And who has shared it and who i follow and who's an inspiration to me so i was like all reach to and see if she wants to come on. So thank you for being here see. I'm honored thank you. Yeah concern love for you. Just to kind of share your story of pregnancy and your fertility journey and And just kind of how that was for you and your husband okay. Yeah so my husband. And i got married in missouri At a young age and then a few years after marriage removed to air zona for a job. And that's where we still are now which is awesome. I love And we've always wanted kids. You've always talked about four kids but we'll see how it goes you know type of thing Just because we both come from families of four and I remember i had. It was on twenty four th birthday which is like this is a stupid story this part right here by twenty per day. I remember crying. Because i was like. I'm getting so old and we don't even have any kids which is so crazy to think about. Because i'm thirty two now and i'm like i'm not old right right. I was in. I just had all this. I put this pressure on myself to like get married. Have kids you know. Be a young mom all that stuff and it was just. It was dumb. But that's where all started And it was like literally that that day. We're both like okay. We'll let's start. Let's start drying like. Maybe we already ready for this. We're in a season of you. Know a good job a steady job and where we end up where you wanna be. So let's go ahead and start and So we didn't really know anything you know. We were very naive to the process of having kids. You know i had heard of infertility about other people. But i had never had anyone super close to me that i knew a lot of details about it so i never even thought about it. Never even thought it would be something you'd have to worry about So few months go by. Nothing's happening you know. I think a lot of people can relate in that the first time especially especially if you were a little naive like me like a few months feels like forever and to some. That's not anything and to others is. It feels like forever So after probably we're getting close to like eight or nine months. I'm like you know what i think i have. I have this. I'm googling everything searching everything Probably not the best idea. But i know many of you have been there and i was like i need to see dr. I need a see infertility specialists Because this is happening where heartbroken every month. All my friends now are at the age should time where they're getting pregnant and it's easy for them you know. I've got friends. You not even trying. And they're actually getting pregnant and some friends are on their second kid. And i'm just feeling again just behind in putting so much pressure on myself but Still really just sad that we don't have a baby to hold In so i had found a doctor that was going to be covered by insurance. 'cause a lot of infertility specialists not covered by insurance and we just couldn't afford that at the time so i found a doctor who has obgyn but he could do some infertility staff like he had worked a lot of women going through infertility. He just wasn't necessarily the specialist in so we drove like a long way. Not not a long way. I guess but further out than me wanted to for this doctor and we met with him and This was right at about your. We have been trying for a year When we met with him and so we met with him. Talk to him. Got asked if you questions and then we were heading up to a season of camp. We we run youth camps for months up a couple of hours away from where we live in. So we're gone from home for a month every year in so we're like okay when we get back will be able to do tests and do some things but now we at least have established with dr and while we're at camp i was late with my cycle and you know feeling little nauseous here and they're just feeling different and could this be but So scared to take test. Like i'm like oh wait another day. I'll wait another day because you just let down and the disappointment so Waited waited waited finally one night. We took a test and it was positive a and it was my first positive pregnancy test..

"bethany" Discussed on Mindful Mama - Parenting with Mindfulness

"It's like you're clearing house of pain really. I mean that's one way of putting it. But it's a sacred. It's a sacred brave thing that every parent i have so much respect for parents actually not a parent myself but i have so much respect for moms and dads. Who are really wanting to do this work. Because it's brave. I think it's the most empower most important work that you can do as a parent is to just be as conscious as you can and you're gonna make mistakes and you are gonna pass things along but that's okay. Kids don't need perfect parents. They really just need parents who are on their path on their path of growth and by being on the path you're gonna lighten their load for shore. Yes yeah you're gonna like that definitely. I couldn't agree more absolutely but it's interesting. You said this phrase the clearing house of pain. Sounds like really heavy. But i think what i would what i would i in my mind. I requested that. Two of a phrase that my teacher the zen master Han has said which is really beautiful and he says that no mud. no lotus. Yeah which is the flower that symbolizes enlightenment. It grows in the mud. And if you're a good or getting gardener you know that what flowers need is poop. They need rotten yucky vegetables. They need you know manure like they know mudd. No lotus without those difficulties without those pain pain. The wound all that like without any of that like. There's none of this flowering of awakening of compassion. That that you describe. And and i firmly believe that was beautiful. Yeah thank you so much bethany. This has been so beautiful to talk to you. I really appreciate your sharing your your journey and your voice and everything to to do this You said your book came out the night before you had. The book release party was at the night after the night. Before the insurrection at the capital it was actually my book. Event was the night of the insurrection. Yeah oh my goodness. And so. So i just want to. I know we're at the very end of our conversation. Like i'm really just curious about a little taste of how you talked about that. Just a little bit. Can you share absolutely. Yeah what felt so. Luminous about speaking about the mother wound on the night of the insurrection. Was that you know at the time i think are. Actually i think it was a little bit later but yet it was this feeling like you know people were saying unity. We need to have unity and but then people were saying well. We can't have unity without accountability And so this was something that i really got. We just started talking about. you know. that's kind of the truth. And our families. As well. And i think we're at that that generation where generations of the past loyalty and love meant silence. It meant pushing things under the rug. It meant putting a happy face on suffering. That's what family loyalty meant for. Many generations was not talking about things that matter not talking about painful things and i see this on the national level..

Perfection in Modern Motherhood

"Perfection. In motherhood learned from reading your book to my not surprise. Is that perfection. In motherhood is a very very old dictate take us back to where the history of mothering advice. Sort of well. I'll get us started as the historian in the group. So something that maggie. And i have talked about for a long time. Is that the expectations for motherhood have changed sort of bradley like today. You don't expect your children to know how to guide a plow agriculture society anymore but the expectation you will raise a certain kind of citizen is still in place and while that can sound like a good thing. The particulars of that have changed over time. They've gotten more and more intense and more more particular so now it's about what kind of education your child gets. How much screen time they have. What kinds of foods they eat or do not eat how they sleep where they sleep. There's all of these different questions whereas before the social project was more about getting people who could do the kinds of work that were valued in this society and to participate in certain ways. Certainly if you're a woman you weren't participating through voting for most of american history but the particulars have gotten much more intense over time. When you say maggie yes in. I were able to really dig into a lot of historical archives and kind of see where some of these messages began. And how they've either shifted or not shifted throughout history and just to have access to some of the messages that women were told in late. Eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds was particularly fascinating to me. Some of their struggles were very similar to mine in a lot of the questions that they had really resonated with

I went to so many different schools. Thirteen different schools so i was always used to being new and i was grown up very very early. So as a little girl. I was adventurous and independent and alone a lot very analytical. Because i was alone a lot so i was sort of coming up with my own imagination and creativity and i saw a lot of crazy things i worked at the race. Track is very little kid. I would get up at five o'clock in the morning and go to the racetrack to be what they call a hot walker when they excise the horses and then you have to wash them and cool them doubt not though like driving race. Track the horse race. Track the horse. Okay cool. I was very independent as well. My parents were both working out of the house and a feel like that's what led me to be sort of entrepreneurial like i had to learn how to solve problems for myself at such a young age so i feel like maybe that's something we have in common.

Superpowering Teams with Ilkka Paananen

"I've been so excited to do this with you for two reasons one. I've been spending so much time thinking about in in kobe. Playing video games with myself and my young son. I think a great way to begin. This conversation is with one of my favorite lines of yours. Which is that you want. Said i am the least powerful. Ceo in the world. I love this concept because it'll introduce the idea of culture teams and people that we're going to spend most of our time talking about which may send a little strange for a video game company. But i think it's amazing and critical. So what did you mean by this line. Why did you say that. What does it mean to super cells. Culture i thanks so much for having me better. I think some are behold point. The ball trays that the more decisions that the snake and i make the better in an ideal were like if i five no decisions then but would make me. I guess is far full. Co the whole idea about supercell on what is at the core of our culture is this idea is small and independent themes that equal cells and these independent gained things sacred inside supercell way to think about them think about smaller start ups bidding raider company. That's why we think about them. I'd love to go back before super cell. Because i think your career up until that point helped inform you in how to build supercell with less focus on command and control and more focused on decentralized trust and i think our lessons today will be applicable across creative pursuits and industries. Not just in gaming what were you doing. Prior to founding supercell and what lessons that you learned or were taught by your experience before this business. I need to go back to the year. Two thousand so. I will still a student at helsinki university of technology. I had a business major vote on my actually like in my early of my studies for some reason. My dream job was to become either a management consultant. Thouray investment banker simply. Because because everybody else in my cloth wanted to catch and so deny then at some point in my studies. I was really interested in about entrepreneurship. And i started to think. Well this would be really cool. You know trying to build your own sing with a group of great people. And then i just looked like super lucky. I happened to bump into this group of people who wanted to found a company and it had to big games company on earlier. Especially in my dna cheers. I had to be a massive game. Iran still played a little gains. And then these guys may creating afford to pay any salary on threes and there was nobody else will what's gonna applying to join them although us nevil gains and they needed somebody else to do everything else and i was probably the only applicant assay and then i got the job done. I didn't get any pay funny. Anything is these guys for that. Okay you gotta do all the sales for us than me to give you like a proper titles and the people would actually like to see you. I guess they didn't know what to call me seven. They decided to call me the ceo. And i think. I was twenty two years of age and absolutely no idea what i was doing at never had a proper job except on summer. Jobs are my parents. They probably never had a proper job. Because all i've done. I've been ceo gaming companies. But anyway that's how they're going to start it. I know i had no idea what we were doing. Learnt by ewing an end eventually managed to graduate some there in bethany. and so. that's how we're gonna start in the thousand so set up a games company on funnily enough Ballgames the time if you recall those days assistant feature phones but they're coming to markets mostly from manufacturers like nokia for example of course based here in finland and of course never snow app stores. Nothing like you would need to distribute this job based gangs through. Carriers was very different at that time. But that's how book started. He founded the company almost exactly at the finding the dot com bubble burst onto members financing available so we basically like financed it bites doing work for hire work and then on the side be developed our own. Ip and our own games. I think miller able cut deals with most of the european carriers in big some of the us based carriers and then a massive amount of these jobs based phone scam the market and actually make some money on the company started to grow and back in two thousand four. We sold our company to company each chocolate. Which will say followed. By game industry legend strip wilkinson funded by sequoia on inclined burke in on the joined forces to them and then over time. The company grew to like four hundred people so relatively sizable game. Developers confident. I would call that down. Nba in guessing entrepreneurship and management learned. Lots of lessons. What were the key lessons that you learn positive and negative all combine the time at both digital chocolate and your company that was acquired by digital chocolate. What were the things that it installed in you that you brought with you into super cell and what were some other things that you reacted to a reacted against when the about how supercell would run as a company that they could've kept and what i learned that all domestic. It's all about the people and digital chocolate. I was very lucky to berkeley luck. Such amazing people. I kinda fought at those times that we are going to like had the best strategy the best plans the best processes in place and digital chocolate and mostly because of my doing so sexy quite a sort of a structured and also when it comes to innovation so we had pros almost forever thing if you off me like okay. How digital chocolate. Think about new games development tenure like a slight dick flex sixty slides expense. Exactly things for and they had all kinds of prose essays fall like how do they green like games the almost full we are myself and mike on leadership team over. There had a crystal ball as he kind of knew the best declare. Send a cornerstone. Humorous won't and then they put together like all kinds of control mechanisms to make sure that the company x. develops products and gains the direction. But then all of the years. I realized that there are a lot of negatives above this type of way of thinking. Because isn't the great the best creative people in the world. They don't get the feeling of ownership and oftentimes the reality is but actually the people who are best. What is best for the game for players. Those people are actually people are building the game. It's bill leadership. The people like me. And all the years. I realized our job as leaders. They should enable people to do their work better. We'll try to control the spent so much time carring the best people in the world also digital trump anything about why on earth tried to control them by. Don't do trust them to do the best thing. One of the things that made me fully realize this at some point. I start to look back with. Okay let's look at the heat gains but our company has pulled out early sort of a coma nominate these gangs. One is that may have really amazing people and raised themes it'd behind the games but interestingly the other thing was that most of these gangs some had nothing to do with all of these fantastic pros instead had besides the usual story was just need into anything else for these guys do their sunbury their on during the corner of the office and they were just doing whatever they want to do. And there's some flying under radar so to speak and then the next thing you know. This amazing game comes out. And then i start seeing whoa that. These amazing games may come out because of me or together they come out despite the spiteful things

"bethany" Discussed on Greg Laurie Podcast

"Hey everybody greg laurie here. You're listening to the greg. Laurie podcast and my objective is to deliver hopefully compelling practical insights and faith culture and current events from a biblical perspective to find out more about our ministry. Just go to our website harvest dot org so thanks for joining me for this podcast today. Buddy have you heard i. I met bethany when you were around. Fourteen years old and the interesting thing is bethany was born in the same year that we started the harvest crusades. So you want to know long. We've been going as long as bethany. Hamilton's been alive right d. We're born in one thousand nine hundred ninety into a family of surfers. Your dad served her mom serfs your brother serve and the you were living right there on the beach and quiet. I mean that must have been an ultra cool. Life is amazing. I have a beautiful family is so supportive of me and everything that i do and growing up in hawaii is incredible just surfing and you know everyone knows everyone and when i was about five years old is really when i started getting into surfing but at the same time i gave my heart to god and from there the combination enemies ing life so you were raised in a christian home going to church your whole life and that was a part of your life and your life was radically tested. When at the age of fourteen an october thirty first right two thousand three you were out surfing and you were attacked by a fourteen foot tiger shark. And what can you remember about that day. Yeah losing to a shark was crazy. Experience that i don't really like to talk about much but one thing that i'm just so in that god was there that day and he gave me the ability to stay calm and just trust in him and you know he had a reason for me surviving and see. Most people would see this as such a horrible thing. But i see all the beauty and good that god has brought out of and it's just incredible how he can turn things that we don't understand into good. You lost sixty percent of your blood that day and your doctor said it was a miracle that you recovered. Did you think you were going to die or did you think you would survive. This are thoughts when you're out there and you're bored and you're being brought in turn kit was tied with a leash around your arm right what what was going through your mind at that point. I mean as thirteen years old. And i was surprisingly calm but i was. I remember praying and hoping to survive and just focusing on that. Of course i was scared to death and i wasn't sure if i was going to survive but i'm here today and still surfing and sharing my life story and it's cool that's right you have share your story. Everywhere that great you've said bethany. Uc as a chance to get people hope for their life. And you've been all the media has covered this. You've been featured on twenty twenty the today show the tonight show in multiple other outlets. You even won an award the courage award at the teen choice awards and you know what's really cool and it was reflected in that video. Is you talked about your faith in. jesus christ. Why did you do that bethany. I guess from year. I grew up in hawaii and just a really simple lifestyle just surfing and hanging out with friends and just and then when this all happened just my life three hundred sixty degree turn round and all of a sudden featured on all these shows and stephan. I just knew that. God wanted me to share his love and i felt his love and peace immediately after the attack. It was really cool. The two weeks prior to the van my mom had been praying fervently like god just use me and let me glorify you in my life and and that was our specific pair and so in the tac happened. It was like crazy godless. We knew he was in control and and we just gave him our worries and struggles. And i have a couple of versus. I wanted to share with you. Guys tonight I'm gonna read them. But so colossians. Three twenty two through twenty four bond servants obey and all things your master according to the flesh not with our servant as pleased as men pleasers but in the series of your heart fearing god. And whatever you do do heartily as to the lord and not to mend knowing that from the lord you'll receive the reward and inheritance for all you all you serve christ and i've just been realizing lately it's like we're we're called to serve god and and fear him at the same time and and when we do that his presence just takes over our life and he can rock our world and whatever you are and wherever you've come from like he can use you and make your life incredible. That's great bethany. Stories gives me a movies been made about your life soul surfer mazing film. How many of you have seen soul surfer. Wow look at that. Great great film on the theater and then i watched it again the other night. And what's really great is at the end. They have a surfing you doing the actual surfing in for a lot of the scenes when the character plane. You was surfing when the girl was on the way. That was the real bethany right. Making salsa was insane. My family and i were all really involved in so we got to keep it as soon as possible and i had a blast shooting some of the stunts surfing and just becoming friends with all the actors. And so yeah. I hope you guys enjoyed the film and it was still fun to be a part of definitely a lot to making the film. So what would you say to someone here tonight. that maybe is had a setback. Maybe they had an accident. There's been a tragedy in you. Come through all of this. What is your message to them. And what place. A relationship. With jesus christ can play in all of this well first of all. Like god's love for you is an ending and no matter what you do. He's gonna love you. Forgive you for whatever you've done or been through maybe if someone's hurt you or or you've heard someone else. I think it's key to just ask god in that person for forgiveness or forgive them if they've heard you and then from there just taking it one day at a time and just learning to trust in god and his his power to help you get through those circumstances. Yeah got it. Got us so good. And he's always here for us and we just have to open our hearts to him and he will take care of you from there. Thank you bethany. Hamilton takes come back.

Hong Kong arrests over 50 pro-democracy activists

"Kong than fifty pro democracy activists and politicians bethany ebrahim. Ian is accuses china expert. Bethany good morning. Can you tell us what's going on. Yeah so early wednesday morning up more than one. Thousand police officers fanned out over hong kong and arrested at least fifty three pro democracy activists and politicians. These are some of the most well known people in hong kong participating in hong kong's completely legitimate democratic elections and now they have all been charged with subverting state power anthony. China's leaders are actually feeling very confident and. I wonder why that's important to understand in the context of these arrests so with the coronavirus outbreak. Last year i mean. Initially that was terrible for china's global reputation however they were about able to control it very well and because of that china is the only major economy in the world who experienced significant economic growth. In twenty twenty. I think xi jinping is feeling like he wants to make hay while. The sun shines and this entire dramatic. Crackdown on hong kong has happened entirely during the coronavirus pandemic with that said i wonder how the events this week in washington were portrayed by the chinese communist party in hong kong there were huge protests last year. And that's a real sore point for the chinese communist party and so it showed photos of the chaos yesterday in the capital and it said that this was a beautiful sight to behold. That's something that nancy pelosi said on june fourth. Two thousand nineteen as a large group of peaceful. Protestors held a candlelight vigil in hong kong commemorating the nineteen thousand nine hundred eighty nine massacre. And so they were taking that line and turning it on its head and saying look at this beautiful sight to behold and so there were a lot of comments like that from chinese state media

"The the angels having just an automatic response to that. It wasn't like they were waiting to be discharged when he was here. The automatic result was worship. The automatic result was declaration when they had the the revelation in that moment as they knew he was out. They were gone in Matt hope in prayer is just even as believers. that's our immediate response that when we see something about him or something new or even just the revelation of his kindness even At our house we do it every evening. When we're driving home we drove up. This are we live on frog ridge road. You're welcome you. can we talk. I mean let's be honest to get that. I welcome alabama To get to our house in the sunset there so beautiful everyday in isaiah kinda made at an. I made a habit of just kind of stopping. We roll down the window. We tell god thank you or we just have this discussion with him amongst ourselves. Just creating that space recognition Just to try to have that practice of automatic response. Because i think a lot of times we want that. But we're not willing to me personally It's it's easier to do that when i when i say it versus doing it in a moment in practicing in letting it be an immediate response every time so if we want to get there it's gotta be a daily a daily thing and so just recognizing that happened in nature saying is really hadn't been the angels and nature being us and our response in its totality Is just is worship. Which is really you know why were created in what god loves the most. So why why would we not wanna give that to him. You know do love that phrase hope is in in route or yeah In route depending all part of the country you're from but hopes on the way And you know. I think part of the reason that this no the idea of this song resonates so well with followers of jesus is because it. It's not a team it is the predominant theme of the grand narrative description like we were born or created us may not born. We were created in perfect space. Were all that could be hoped for was realized. Then we rebelled against it and the message from jesus himself is hope is in route again. That's genesis three fifteen onward and then hope again is realized and for those of us that have jesus and are in certain valleys of life that statement of hope is in route is is still very applicable like you can have the presence of god and know that god is also on his way and what i mean by that is that you're gonna get to experience isn't see tomorrow differently than yes experienced it today. Right it's almost like when joseph was thrown into the pit and the old testament By his brothers and just because they didn't want take his life and but the caravan that would get him out of that pitt was already on the way. And so i love hope is in route and so we are. We are in route but we are we. We are people who have had hoped realized who still need more hope. We need to experiences efficiency of god in different ways in different seasons of life. But then we're also looking forward to hope day in which which hope who has a name and his name is jesus will restore and make all things new again and so that idea of hope Being realized hope loss hope anticipate hope realized again. Hope into another day hoping to a glorious day is really the the those of the plot movements of scripture yet and So that's i think that's why this is. You know other than our great friendship. I think this is also why this resonated this song so so well with me. Well let me ask you this question because at s. l. You we clearly teach. Our students hate unashamedly dream big yen. And that doesn't mean sometimes you aim small when you dream big And history is is full of people who knew how to change. The world was to be to borrow a phrase from hamilton in a small in the room where it happened and sometimes small room right and and so. It's not that. When i say dream big. It's oh it has to be quantified this way or that way no but but dream in a way that you want the influenced have life beyond just yourself right and so i wanna i wanna ask you. That question bethany is you obviously asked god for for deduce some amazing things in your life and he has What what how do you hope. This isn't arrogance this is this is genuinely a genuine hope From someone who or their their soul into a project. How do you hope that this song this project use me will serve the church at large in the years man. Honestly i feel like when you're creating anything or you feel like that god's giving you Just a gift or a word or a moment to create. I think that for me personally. It's still kinda bulls back down to In serving the local church if if it can if it can encourage one p one person If it can move one person. Closer to christ if it can If it can spur on a conversation to wonder what some of these lyrics mean than visitor for the gospel Just because his centers around manual goddess year in Where we are in capital seat church culture currently a lot of times when we're writing in creating we're trying to think and be like others that just like you were talking about you know there's a quantification method to it but in reality Really believed that when when we're just being obedient Whether that comes out and you can release it and it can be distributed or if it's just for your local church of two hundred that are just making a dent in your community for the for the gospel There is no quantification in the kingdom Other than just your willingness to be.

Election 2020 Analysis: Bethany Mandel, Ron Kampeas

"Mandel is an editor writer and podcast at ricochet and online hub. For conservative conversation she's also a rising social media star and conservative columnist. Who has garnered quite a bit of attention. In recent months decrying the government overreach of quarantine restrictions and going from being a never trumper in two thousand sixteen to supporting the president's twenty twenty reelection in a recent column in the forward she talks about why pollsters trying to project the election's outcome got it so wrong once again but don't expect this conversation to be a breakdown of methodology and shifting demographics. Her explanation is much simpler than that and she will explain bethany. Welcome to people of the pot. I think you so much for having me. I'm sorry for the puppy noise. You might hear in the background okay. Now before we begin. I want to remind our listeners. Ajc is a nonpartisan five. Oh one c. Three not for profit entity that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for elective office. So anything i say or ask or challenge really is in pursuit of an explanation. Because i do want our audience to listen so bethany for those who did not read your column. Tell us why. Pollsters predicted a blue wave that we did not see in last week's election so i think that there's going to be a lot of explanations that become clear over the next few months there might be problems with the way that they call people how they call people but i noticed anecdotally and i was saying for months beforehand the most simple explanation for why i thought that it would be extremely close or why the president would garner. Reelection is just because people were lying because they didn't feel comfortable telling the truth and when they would get a call who you voted for from a stranger because you don't actually know who upholstery is. And you can't confirm their identity on the phone When they get a call from pollster hi. I'm just curious for you're voting for. They're not going to tell you on the phone who they're voting for. And in my column i give a story that i thought was really illustrative of my thinking on it coming up prior to the election. Which was i have a. I have a girlfriend who lives in a swing state. i think it's north carolina. And i asked her at the outset of our conversation who e-voting for just sort of in passing and she said. I am still undecided. I don't know what to do and we had a very long conversation. And what we're really talking about was actually. She was doing a conference that got cancelled by a social media. Mob and people were falsely accused of racism. Yada yada and the entire six months of work that she did for the conference just went up in smoke and and it was cancelled and so we were talking about that. And i said this is the kind of stuff that makes people vote for trump. Because he talks about this. Like social media mobs the cancel culture in all these things and i was kind of laughing about how this experience would make her into a trump voter over the course of our conversation. I said yeah. I'm voting for trump this summer on. I never thought i would have done that for years ago. And she was like wait. A second you are and i forgot that. She doesn't follow me on social media. She doesn't know. Sort of where i fall and i said yeah my buddy for trump and she was like oh i am too. I mailed ballots in weeks ago. And she's a friend of mine and we were having an hour long conversation and it was only after i told her that i was voting for president trump that she admitted that she was as well. And so we finished texting. And i looked at my husband and i said the polls were wrong. If this woman who i've known for five years didn't feel comfortable telling me who she was voting for until i told her there's no way we'll no much was made that there were fewer undecided voters in this year's polls but also sounds like what you're saying is that there was even smaller number because those who said they were undecided or at least some of them voted for trump right or they were lying and they said they were voting for biden instead. I i think that that's definitely a possibility as well. Okay now why would they have said president biden. What been the reasoning there. That's the safe answer in this. Cancel culture environment that you know voting for vice. President biden was stackable incorrect dancer. But i think that I think that a lot of people probably unfit apply. I'm curious if you've gotten any feedback from people who read your column and said how dare you call us liars absolutely. Not every single person understood. Even i as someone who works in the media until the eleventh hour did not want to say i was voting for president trump. Because i knew that every time he does something stupid from then on out people with throw that calm back in my face and say this is what you signed on for whatever reality. I'm like. I signed a deal with the devil and i knew i was signing a deal with the devil and i'm not not raw about him. I'm not maga- it's it's an unfortunate situation and it is what it is something that really frustrated me in the wake of biden's election was people sort of saying koumba. Let's all come together and we're were you three years ago. Where were you last year. Why didn't you speak up for the covington. Boys and pete buttigieg was one of the people who was saying it and your staffer. Literally making lists of trump administration employees to blacklist them and to strip them of their livelihood and i think people across the spectrum have different opinions of people who worked in the administration. I know a million of them and they understood the deal that the that the devil that they made to and they were trying to uniformly serve our country and to mediate. Trump's trump. Nece and i think they did a great job and i am appreciative of the work that they did in every single department they worked in and they made it possible for us to come out of the last four years. Fine we're fine as a country and pete bridges people. His former staff are making lists of all of these people and pitas coming out. And saying you know. Let's all come together. I'm like okay. Put your money where your mouth is and publicly denounced what your staff are doing. Where is that being reported. I don't know where it's being reported. It's called the trump accountability project. And if you google it. I'm sure only conservative media are covering it because that's how it is. They had a website called trump accountability project. And it's time for people to put their money where their mouth is a little bit on this and no one is and michelle. Obama tweeted something the other day. That was you know. Half of americans who voted for him are x y. You know the whole litany of and this is not. I don't know how you move forward. When that when the former first lady is impugning the motives of half of the americans that voted for for trump. And you're not. You're not voting for racism. You're not voting for you. Know i think. I think that's a really simplistic way of looking at things. And it's also a really divisive and toxic way and if biden wants to actually move forward in a kun-bae off fashion say something about what michelle obama tweeted now. I want to reiterate what you said at the beginning. Bethany that this is just your theory. it's based on anecdotal evidence. There are many reasons why the polls might not have panned out this year. But let me ask you this. Not all pollsters work for media some work for politicians who are trying to assess what their constituents want. Do you think people understand that. Not being truthful about their preferences might undermine the whole democratic process. Do you believe that so. That's an interesting question. Because in some part it undermines the thesis of my piece because we saw that the internal polling that was done by campaigns was actually far superior to that of the media companies. And i think that people are more apt to trust a cloister that is not in the media because people don't trust the media dot readily and that distrust has been well earned by the media but the internals that we can gather that the biden campaign was getting told them to go to georgia and it seemed like a crazy idea and they were right to do so. So i i think that the internal polls that campaigns had were better than the media hat by. I don't think it undermines the democratic process because is not essential to the democratic process. It just it gives campaigns some idea of where they should be focusing and what their messaging should be but overall the democratic process is completely hinged upon votes. And that's really what counts at the end of the day well bethany. Thank you so much for. Your thoughts really intriguing thoughts. I really appreciate that. And i hope our listeners. Think about it i hope. I hope you've given them food for thought. Thanks

"bethany" Discussed on Radicalize Me

"I want to better understand the idea of of you know being a system or having a system. I'm like yeah. No that's actually quite easy. So think of yourself as puzzle have all these pieces that work together to make up one functioning human being right. But here's the thing. Every single p. is has been isolated at some point in their lives. Especially if you have not so much with. Ocd it They become isolated. They develop into their own person and that person's in that identity still has a lot to offer to the table. And you're just all coming together as one to function as a whole okay. Does that make sense. Yeah well because look. I mean probably anyone could say. They have different parts of their personality. Imagine this is much more being multifaceted. No no it's not. It's not at all so the current theory that's widely accepted but why this happens is called. Structural dissociation in the theory is his that between the ages of two nine. Sometimes younger We everyone is bored with multiple selves. But through normal healthy development those though selves unification and you become on functioning personality or identity. Okay when you have childhood trauma or something else happens. That unification gets disrupted and so these amnesties barriers. Go up in between those traits. So here's me. Bethany aged whenever you know functioning doing well completely unaware of leg. Three other alters the have now formed out of necessity from other things so as a result you. I have myself then. I have sack who is the only altered. The ages with me She's thirty one. She's going to be thirty. Two in december and i have heinrich than i have shoshana the my have alice in rue and altogether. We work together to make a for me to be able to function throughout society. Basically without them. I don't think i would have made it at thirty one. Let's put it that way. Yeah okay so is it. Is it anything like around. Age does does that. Sort of unification process usually happen. Because i was wondering depends on a variety of factors. Right from an affluent background of that unification's going to happen much quicker. It usually between the ages of six and nine. You start seeing that unification of personality if you have a healthy normal childhood. Yeah yeah. I mean that's interesting because i you know it. It does seem like it's something that little kids will like. you know. say that just now. I'm someone else which is why you see a lot of little kids. It's like oh they how so many multiple personalities they're trying to figure out who they are what they like. What trades the delake. And then if they don't like them they reject them. Which is why you see kids. Have these tantrums all the time. Because they're confused and they don't know how to verbalize that nobody has the vocabulary to really identify what is going on but as the current theory that is widely accepted. This is what happens now. There are many theories as to why but this is the one that researchers think makes the most sense and is widely accepted across most psychology fields. Okay yeah i mean that makes makes a lot of sense. I think with with any a mental health condition. People like just go right to like so like your brains broken like some drawing with you like well. No it's just our brains develop this really interesting way to protect itself right..

Interview with Bethenny Frankel

"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The skin is still working from home for the time being because of coca nineteen. Today Bethany Franken joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Skinny Girl, a company that offers lifestyle solutions for women, but you also know her name from her time as a cast member on the real housewives of New, York, and as a guest shark on Shark Tank Bethany we have found your career for years. We are so excited to have you with us today welcomed to skin from the couch. Hi thank you so much as we're GONNA start the show with our question that we open every show with which is skip your resume for. Cod a resume. I've never really I haven't had a resume in so many years but I would say entrepreneur author. Mom Philanthropists Entertainer I guess TV media personality PODCAST PROPRIETOR One thing we wanted to say actually from the beginning was that our chief of staff is from Puerto Rico and her family is there and she wanted to thank you for the work associated with be strong and she raised about. Thirty thousand dollars for the global empower mission and just wanted to thank you for the work that you did there. So wanted to make sure that I said that from the top. Oh, that's amazing. We promise the I. Would Tell You. So obviously, for those who have like Danielle, myself who've watched fear years on TV and studied your. A businesswoman, we feel like we know everything there is to know about Bethany, but it's probably impossible. So what is something that we can't Google about you or that we haven't seen on TV that we should now. I think people I don't know I'm seen as a homebody. Pandemic has been that different for me from. The landlocked being home perspective at all I say on ninety percent home by ten percent lunatic. But it's really probably ninety five percent homebody that was one of the things that was probably good about reality TV for me. It gave me a reason to wear my clothes. It give me a reason to put makeup on and I think that you fit in really well with Daniel and I are also big homebodies and our lives have not changed that much. I'm not really that social. I'm sort of antisocial in a way I have a very, very tight circle and I like it that way and I really don't let people in I really don't knock would get burned and I just don't spread myself too thin I don't I don't connect dots. It's so funny people people are dot connected and they don't even realize they're like, Oh, I just saw this person and they were doing that and did you go there of did use it like people always want to know what you`re Doing what information and connecting dots about you and I'm not a doctor at all I just don't need to provide any extra information than is required. I love that phrasing 'cause it does describe a lack of people that I know. So one of the things that I think is you know you've been so on us about is how you grew up you spoken about your childhood being raised around the race track and you've talked about how that upbringing influenced your understanding business. How did that frame the hustled that you clearly have? I mean it's only what we can speculate I can't know because I didn't live any other life in any other environment but I know that I grew up. Very quickly, I was going to nightclubs and I was thirteen years old getting myself in handling myself. I used to go from I have some island into the city and take training and. I was just living like an adult when I was thirteen years old but handling myself, I worked at the racetrack. I was a hot walker which meant that when the horses come off the track after they've exercise I, would you walk them? You give him a bath and then you walk them around the shed row until they cool down and so I was working I was a hot walker the when I was like. Seven if I had to get six seven until later in my life and I used to. Spend the day at the racetrack. Around gambling, going up to the betting window myself meeting all kinds of crazy unsavory characters. This isn't like the fancy wearing hat Kentucky Derby part of the race struck with the backside. My father was a horse trainer. So you're hanging out with jockey agents and bookies, jockeys, themselves grooves, and it's very gritty. and. The race track itself is about gambling and that's the whole thing. So that's how they make their money. So you're basically growing up growing up casino, and in fact, we used to go to Vegas again when I. was like thirteen years old and I would be going to the craps tables and so I just had a very nontraditional life very, very young. And it was really well that I knew a lot of violence in my house and you know drinking and just fighting and just being an adult as.

Plant Parenthood Is More Than A Trend

"If you're instagram be looks anything like mine for months you've probably been seeing tons of beautiful assists in their homes surrounded by lots and lots of Lushes, green plants. It seems like many of us have found solace in plants and other connections to nature in the past couple of months. So we wanted to dig into which driving this for us. In this episode, we're sharing to perspective on growing field of psychology called nature therapy are ego therapy. First of is my conversation with death collier. Beth is in private practice as a nature allies psychotherapist and writes on nature health and race. She specializes in working with relational trauma in our connections with people and Nature Bethany discuss what ego therapy is why. So many of us have turned to plants the psychological benefits of being connected to nature. And steps, we can take a repair our relationships in nature. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks so much for inviting me, it's really great to be able to join you here from London I'm sat in a woodland fail I mean the city at the moment. Yeah. So of course, the listeners can't see you but you were you have a very picturesque as beg rows. So I'm at peace just looking at your background out there in the woodland. We all lucky. Old People See London is one of the world's major cities still still got a huge amount of green space where we're lucky to have lots of parks but also woodland's to very close and accessible. So I'm happy you're able to join us because I'm not sure how active you are on social media but definitely, since March you know since the pandemic really hit I've just been observing lots and lots of pictures of plants all across the social media feeds seems like lots of people have been getting into buying house plans for their homes planting gardens just really doing a lot with greenery, and so I like to hear from you your thoughts about why that's happening like why do you feel like people are turning things like plants and gardening right now? Nature has this wonderful capacity to sue the since the help us fill grounded I think a lot of us have turned to nature. Help US get through some very stressful anxious times during the coronavirus period and and lockdown in particular for many of us have had policies where we've had to stay indoors most of the time and we can't go out and accessible usual green spaces than bringing nature indoors as being the next best thing. So I think people have been turning to nature for release. It's been a wonderful focus having plans to tend to and care for, but also feel the benefits of being around plants which uplift us that. Make us feel calm. Yeah, and I know a lot of your work is in nature therapy. So can you tell me more about what that is and how you became so passionate about their practice? Yes. So I grew up in the countryside in UK which for a person of color is quite unusual. Any two percents of people of African. Descent live in the countryside. UK and so my childhood's spent roaming the fields playing outdoors learning about nature and how I could meaningfully interact with it. For example, the more knew about edible plants, the less I had to go home to to get something two weeks. So nature became a very meaningful relationship for me. and. When I moved into the city, I realized that not everybody saw nature as normal that had been a real disconnection. Where I opened my door and I was surrounded by nature for a lot of people they have to make an effort to go out and find the natural world. Not Everybody has the kind of connections which makes it possible whether it's they don't have parents that take them or they find that green spaces aren't accessible in the areas that they live. Semi journey into nature was through seeing how for many people there was a distance between them and the natural world and I'd be working with a young boy. who was at risk of falling into trouble with gangs and we were working traditionally indoors in a room and nothing seemed age appropriate for him the toys. Too. Young. He was someone that presented with a lot of provider even though here's about ten eleven, but it wasn't ready for face to face I contact and it made me think back to my days as a child and having natural spaces and being up to Rome and how that let south a lot of energy and how allows us to process things that we're feeling and I wondered what it would be like if I took our work outside, it didn't actually happen with that child but. It did with others in the similar situation and from there I started to all my adult clients, the opportunity at work outdoors to and the transformation was sort of self evident that when we change our environments and we're able to express ourselves differently and we realized that much of the things we're experiencing our to do with the extended violent, wherein not just our own internal

We're still hanging out in the pandemic. Times out of ten, you're probably trying to figure out what you're going to watch on the streaming service. You know what movies are out right now and at the same time things are being canceled and push bag. But every once in a while, you can find like a little project, a little indie project this last through that, you can check out the me wouldn't have got the tension in the past and the past Hollywood because reinventing these days. It's all. Got Me thinking I'm like well Andy Andy Projects `Dinu thing now for Hollywood can be a new formula for how Hollywood Cannes film because they're used to the smaller budgets and used to make things work. But you have to take my word for it I. Do have an expert with me today. My guest today is Indie director Trey Haley and he's has had quite the influence on bt plus if you see where I'm going with that. He also has a series, the family business, always a bridesmaid which features the visa which you guys know by the way is going to be bad woman. So I, had the in my head to point that out straight and his his my favorite project of his at ease erected is called note to self. It's like a really cute romance movie like I don't know if you guys are check this out as Christian keyes Letroy. Lucky I just it's. So it's so I love I didn't know I didn't know you directed this trey and I decided to get shot because that's one of my favorites. Thank you. Thank you. You're welcome. Go ahead I'll. I'll let you take talking to know enough I just want to keep you up here. Appreciates you. Thank you for having me on and. Yet notice we shut that several years ago on actually Christian actually wrote that moving Christian keys actually real. Wow. Okay. So that was cool. When you know like you said, Eva was evil Pickford and I mean, that was a really fun movie to do that was Yeah. It looked like a lot of fun like I was always wanted like so you never know I guess and I'll get we'll. Get hopefully we can get a little secrets from you and and how you've got an industry but you never know when you're going to get another one of those projects but to me it was so cute I would have wanted a second one but you never know what's going on you know with that kind of stuff and you know that world and Hollywood and everything right? Right? No No, you know That wind just it was just that one note to self. Really what? Part to ever really created for it but right right Sometimes, we get the part to sometimes it's just like you know it's like even always a bridesmaid people keep asking. Is there going to be a part of this? You know no Yvette Nicole Brown wrote that movie and that. She's now. Made her thing we we should make our to we'll let you know what would Yeah Right. But yeah. So yeah, that's cool. But yeah. So you have a lot of a lot of products going, which is really dope because you kind of like I think it's really cool. your career by the way when I was researching because you, you're kind of you're kind of under the radar but not necessarily like your hat and stuff. It's just Hollywood had this weird way of like surveys out there as we know yeah, yeah. It's it's one of those things I think as we continue to go. Yeah we like let the work speak for itself. You know a lot right now what we do, they see what we do. We also consider ourselves in indy studio in meaning like we you know from locations to our resources out here in Los Angeles to the relationships we have with distributors in allowing ourselves to be positioned to where we still have ownership within our property that we create and collaborate with networks or distributors where we both owned The property together you know like. Fifty or or licensing deals where we bring in the capital two so that we have some crew you know more creative. Input into what we're making so that we'd contrite or read about the Dome of these projects is well. And do you feel guess going on what I was off the top? Do you feel because I feel in my opinion any projects could kind of give a rollback or or blueprint for how they could go about filming. 'cause I know everybody's been question is how are they going to finish a lot of these TV shows? You know how they're gonNA finish she's movies because you guys correct me if I wrong with you guys deal with on a daily basis. Okay. Budgets. How am I going to get this done with this little better? You know these amount of actors yeah. Yeah Yeah we look like we we always say we. We do our best to quality you know every new project, we just make sure we're growing and building and building level. We can make sure that are actors are excited about working but the big thing for us is given people rolls that they don't often get. As one of our things, you know when we cast, we look for opportunities to give people unique. Like we say, Hey, will you know what this person may be interested in his role because they've never done this before you know right earl instead of looking at somebody and say they will never do it. They may actually do it because they've never done it before it's kind of like the Halle Berry scenario with monster's ball right nobody. Yeah. That role because she was at the time is far will you know obviously, they didn't even consider her it first for this, but then our passion to play something. So different. Placed her into this situation. So it's a of actors here that are just always been putting by. So doing the same thing, you see them doing those same. Sometimes, they always win the same role. What's not good that they just want to do the same role that's what they're being presented to him. A lot of times will right take you flip it say, Hey, I know you do that. That's your bread and butter, but here's a scenario. May We pay half of what you get. But right right. But it now is going to show you the value. Is it for you something different so now you can walk away from this people can say, wow, I never see this person like that before which explain exactly. So it's about also giving people adding value that's what our world collaborative company we love like whether it's behind the scenes in front of scenes we're always in collaboration and making sure we have a win win scenario with everybody we work with but then when this covert scenario as you were saying. It's also about. You know we're we're about to go back into filming at the end of the month and.

He is at the Greenbrier in West Virginia where he was laying world team tennis, and then as he will explain, is ready to embark on a full season starting in August, and we talked to him about what it's been like in the tennis bubble what his plans are for the rest of the season and sort of what the impact of this crazy and cratered year has been on a on a player of his status, his age. then. We have Eric Hutchinson. He's been on the show before Eric is a friend of big. Band of tennis and we talk a bit about what it's like to be a solo performer solar artists in the time of Cova probably not dissimilar to being a singles player. Eric has a new album class of one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. So we talk a bit about the process a bit about this sort of enforced break that we are all on. What the overlaps between music and tennis. All right now and some tennis chatter with a big tennis fan. So Sam Corey versed Haircut Simpson's second. Let's start in. West. Virginia. You're. In the bubble. I am. Tennis bubble. Let's let's start the president as a been. IT'S BEEN AWESOME You know for me I hadn't told a match in.

I. Know I haven't most you'll have in, but the resort is awesome So it is a bubble but at the same time you can there's golf fishing a bunch of restaurants you can go. You know skeet shooting eighteen. So you're you don't feel like you're just you're playing tennis and going back to your room. There's so much to do outside tennis, which is really made it fun for everyone because we are here for for three full weeks. And it's great to be back in absolute competition and. Going to court I mean it's going great so far. Some sounds like summer camp widsom competitive tennis thrown in. That's exactly what it feels like especially 'cause you're you're in the mountains that it's got a very, very much camp field. We're we're only doing this audio. I have to say you're your backdrop is tremendous. It looks like I mean you can kind of see like. Beautiful. No it's. It's this part of the I've never been here like I said it's I mean we went ATV and a few days ago, and you go up in the mountains in the views and. I. Spectacular. Doesn't sound like a bad way to spend July. What's been the? What about sort of the training, the nutrition, the hydration everything that comes with competitive playing how have you been able to deal with? With that. I, mean for me personally that's been that's been tough. The last like months to find the motivation for practice knowing or not knowing when we're GONNA. Start. You know you're kind of always like like apprenticed for like, wow not studying for I'll just as the next day and then I do the next day. So you know the last two months I haven't practicing hard but there's there's a practice shape and there's match shape. It's hard to really get back into your match shape until you play match. So. I'm doing the best. I can I've got Christian Cossio who travels with me as like a physio here with me. So we've been in the gym every day and working on my body. So physically actually feel fine because you know the team that I'm on I'm only playing singles every day. So I've literally got a thirty minute sets of five. And that's all the tennis I'm playing. So off days and even some matchdays I'm finding the other guys have updates in in an extra and extra practice and spending time in the gym and trying to make the most of it won't here. What's the level play? Overall? It's been high I. Mean I've played tennis twenty years because of the incentives this year online means finals, winters, It's intense. The teams are into it i. mean every you really feel like everyone's kind of laying it out there and It's made it better. You know I it's fun of the past but these incentives, I, it's it's up the level and there's a few more come on. There's a the teams kind of gathering around over a little bit more. So it's it's been really fun and I hope they continue to do is incentives can. Stays at this level. Yeah. I mean I was GONNA. Say, this is an interesting. You're a world team tennis veteran. This is unlike any other season you've had you just. League can. Use this crazy. This crazy three weeks as a springboard. I hope. So I. Mean Look at Fred Leading Eric Davidson behind it and they love tennis and You know they seem to have the financial backing to help move it forward in a good direction and Like the nave because of what happened, I mean the level and the talent they have this year is like no other year they've had world tanks. See this type of caliber players for a full season. So hopefully I mean I everyone that plays this year know especially those top players are GonNa say oh. My God this has been fun like this has been a great. Few weeks of practice, it's fun to be on a team and hopefully for the years moving forward, they're going to those top players GonNa WanNa do it again. Give, give us your your like top top four players of the season. If you're writing in your MVP, votes would be Gosh I would have to look at kind of like the the win loss record. you know Bethany Matic Santa's up there because she's just it seems like every mixed doubles in every doubles cheese. You know winning most of those. Sets. closers was up there until she got her she was just on fire. So I'm still GONNA put closers in the mix and then. Not so I'M GONNA try to I'm trying to think of a guy that's. been somewhat dominant. I can't tell I. Don't know I would need to look at like. He's been winning losing.

Yeah yes a world the premier and like saying that World World Premiere World Premiere. Yeah it sounds so fancy like your which is true like it's world premiere the backstage. You would understand that it does not fancy really really. Put a lot of sugar on this one. So where where did you do this then. The prop theater is where we picked our venue. But we just had I. I mean I really got kind of drawn into this project pretty last minute. I felt like they had already had a really strong foundation. Going with a writer and a group of girls. And we've been talking a lot about finding work. That is really more more close to home. Because that's the where he wanNA do right when you get to Chicago because that type of work will be get the same type of work you know with the same people and so they had these roles they were just perfect for them. Just Oh wow ideal like the writer was in the room you know. And I've I've worked on productions before where for the writer was still in the process of writing it and actually this was a less frenzied version of what I experienced working with a new writer but she had a really complete amazing draft and they walked me. I've got walked into it with basically a full cast except for one roll and we just wanted to do it. We set a schedule to it and we got it done. I don't know how. Oh my God that is to me that is like the definition Chen awesome success. Like it's like you're getting to work on the stuff you want to work on get to see like your friends thrive and not that environment to full houses and so they have incredible reactions. I will say I tried to get tickets. I couldn't and I felt so good about not. It's so cool. 'cause I wow it sold out. I can't see it as two hundred out but yeah I had heard Lauren kind of talking about that. There may maybe future production of it. You know there are a couple of theaters that were interested but they really would want a whole new creative team and I just felt really strongly about keeping these actors. Oh yeah and. I don't know that I would direct either so I don't know I mean it's really. It's really hard it's tender and what is the show about it is about. Aw a group of women as a since. They've known each other since they were young and one of them passes away unexpectedly and so the other three have to co- come back for her funeral but they're currently estranged so they've just grown apart and they are going through this process of grieving twenty-something friend and they've never really navigated this before before they attend the funeral and it's really religious and really far removed from their beautiful friend that they knew and they've thought we're going to throw our weight. We're I'm GonNa do something else that we want to do. And so they cut off her finger and precedent to a record. Oh my God that is amazing end so they have to get this record made and they come together for this week and it just you know goes planned but so they just want to figure out how to how do you memorialize is someone. That didn't live half her life. Yeah and how do you wade through this grief process. And how do you like out her own way to yeah like. That's I advocate friendships. That have changed and people that have changed and it was just really Spoke really to the basement inside of me. Yeah and I had to do it.

"I let me anyway. Let me back up. Yeah yeah so I have Crohn's wants disease and so it really manifested right after Grad School. So it kind of messed with my physical go self and my mental self enough that I felt like I couldn't promise one hundred percent of myself one hundred percent of the day's Ah feel great on Wednesday and terrible on Friday and that's not really good for a show a rehearsal process or anything like that so I've sort of tried to work theater in my life life in a lot of other ways so I'm not like none of those ways really require auditioning right now you have well. That's great. So are you doing like dialect coaching. Yes the answer is that I missed auditions which is very weird and no one ever at no actors ever GonNa say that too but yeah well I do have a love. Hey relationship with auditioning like when I'm doing that I really like it and I like experimenting and seeing what I can like throw into the room I I learned to love to sucking you know. I've learned to embrace that but the the my problem with it it's like going going twenty on dishes and then having like you know to call backs and then like you book one job at that's actually like a pretty good percentage image. Yeah and it's just so daunting to go through that all the time and I'm just like I'm more productive when I do my own work you know. So it's it's a hard. It's a really difficult thing. Yeah navigate it is. I'll just isn't the most ridiculous job application in the world. Don't you think we're not doing work from the thing we're actually auditioning for. We're not actually looking at a person when we're doing it you know we're not doing we're doing monologues. which almost never happened in shows? Yeah the actual job audition that process of auditioning for this job never actually applicable to what you do in the end. No not at all so it's just I mean it's no surprise that it's really a fun thing to have to do. Yeah and it's so hard to be like I don't know like when you it's like I could either be the person you're looking for not and that's like the only thing that's really happening here. It's not eh but it's so like going back to what you were saying before like it's you have to take it personally. You have to be like. Oh they didn't want me. Yeah and that's me didn't want me and then you have to. You have to kind of warp it in your mind like I don't want them. Yeah in some ways. Yeah and sort of one of my favorite strategies I feel like something clicked for me when I was like nineteen or twenty about there when I was like I can be the answer to their prayers. I'm sure this was motivated by some quote for someone I could. I could be the exact personnel looking for it and wouldn't it be great if I was and then it's so liberating berating. When you're like I wasn't that exact person? Why would I want to try to fit myself into a mold? That sounds really hard like yeah exactly like why. Can't I just be my Salvin if that doesn't fit what you want to be myself one hundred jobs easier like yeah not working and you're not you're not like lying line to them tell you know saying or someone else. I always have trouble when people say like. Oh if you're a good liar. You're a good actor hate the I know. I know it's so frustrating. I'm like no I. It's not that it's if you're a good if you're if you're truthful you're a good actor dirt you know like it's the total opposite. Yeah like I'm a terrible liar. So I because even if you're a good liar that it has to be your truth you know true. Yeah Yeah I feel like the more I tell the truth. The more people want to work with me and keep being excited about bringing to the table. You know yeah and that comes from co workers an audience you know. People are just more excited than it's like. Oh so easy when you think about it that way almost especially like I feel like for a few years I I wasn't at that stage so it's feels like I'm not art like working hard enough but I'm like no I'm just letting myself like exist. Yeah Yeah for sure. I'm not I'm not apologizing for existing anymore. It doesn't that feel good. That sounds so nice right to just not say sorry for existing. Yeah I have one friend in particular I say this to all the time that she has feelings and then she judges her feelings. I'm like that's exhausting. Feel what you're feeling. This is a valid. This is real. Spend time in this and don't criticize it. You know a whole new level of like well and it's like being where you are so important to like right now. I I hear babies crying through my microphone. I know this is my headphones now. No no I don't do you hear that absolutely. Yeah Yeah. There's a daycare happening. I I was like I was like are their babies in here or is this. Does this microphone. Just pick up. Sounds from the other apartment to a But yeah well. I want to backtrack a little bit. Okay because I don't really know about like where you come from. I know you're from Washington state. Yes yes that's right. Yeah specific northwest sifting North West Pacific northwest. I have a very because I've never been there so I have a very like ideallic kind of yeah vision of what the Pacific northwest is. It's beautiful yeah well parts of it but then I always think of like the You know the drug scene of the nineties with like Nirvana and allison chains and Pearl Jam. And all that what did you like what was city. Did you grow up Niagara Decide. which is a really close Idaho Spokane? Dan is right on the border there. Oh we spend a Lotta time over in Quarterlane Idaho side. Oh Great. So it's really weird state because it's politically controlled by Seattle. Yeah which is a very blue area but then the rest of it is very rural so kind of Illinois yes yeah very much like Illinois so very flat farmland and it's just an interesting tension kind of in this day and well. Yeah I mean I grew up. I grew up here. Yeah and I grew up in Springfield so I like I've seen both sides of it. You know there's like everybody in Springfield things like oh it's Chicago elites and like then I'm here I'm like nobody's actually really liked back but yeah it's an interesting dichotomy bouncing act. Yeah but so you grew up in what was the town's name can spokane okay. Saint grew up in a really conservative family and went to church and all of those things. Things Catholic no a very pentecostal church Christian church. Okay Assembly you've got so yeah. It's still religious note uh-huh okay neither am I know I never but that's the thing by parents. It's one of those things or grass is greener but my parents never made me go to church or anything anything so I always grew up kind of being like an agnostic atheist. Yeah and I was like what would it be like going to church as a kid like. It's I feel it. It'd be kind of Nice to have that structure least well. I mean it gave me really intense sense of justice and morality which is really. I feel like a nice back onto have. Yeah but other than that. There's not much to gain from it. Yeah it was a struggle. I just had a really hard time a how fit in and how to be the person my parents wanted and how to the the person that I wanted and it was just a really intense way to grow up. Yeah when you had thoughts and opinions and it just you you know you feel like you feel like you can't even talk about those kinds of things. Did you have siblings as well. Yes brother and younger sister. Yeah Yeah so oh I got the feeling also that I was kind of my mom's best helper so I think that very early on she was like do this. Cook the dust. This you know what I mean gene so that I think I always kind of grew up with that attitude of like I can help people I can. I can make people happy helping you know what I mean. Yeah wow and then a so so did you. You went to Undergrad in Washington in Washington state and it was like hour and a half south of my hometown so far enough away that my parents couldn't like drop in and visit but close enough that I could go home if I want. Yes that's exactly what I did too I would. I would deal state for that exact reason. Yeah and they weren't going to let me go out of state so yeah I loved that that program it was a really unique program and it was run by the director kind of where I feel like it's so different it was different issue but At the school that I went to acting and directing were intrinsic and so all of our classes were together all the time. And so. That's how it wasn't my Community College Tab. Yeah and so but it it was run by the directing side of things and so it was a really interesting program to go through. Oh did it focus on directing more than it did acting. Can you feel you know this guy had really intense style. and He loved mask work owners kind of batch it. When when you talk about clowning and things like that but he just had this really unique sense of how to structure a semester? And what kind of projects you should be turning in. And they're you know how different from writing a paper and you know doing the traditional school work and I don't know it was just really refreshing way to kind of look at theater. The I didn't think that I could do it as a career. Either because I feel like I totally got switched going to this school because I originally wanted to. You teach theater enrolled in the school because they had a program for the attribute station and I got down there and I met with my counselor who was women's Women's studies counselor and I was like. Oh that's weird. I wonder why that is and then it will find the program doesn't have a counselor but she was like honey. This program doesn't exist and I was like. There's there's a sorry what I was like. I am a region scholar. I have a fat scholarship to go to the school. And you're telling me that the thing that I enrolled for doesn't exist. I put put on all my applications I put on you know and I was like what do you mean. She's like. Oh it hasn't this for years and I was like for years but they still kept it on the application or something they even sent me a course catalog. It was printed in the course catalog. The courses were online. There was old. Information Listing Advisors Teachers in this program that had been cut like four years before I got there there so I was really mad but I was also not going to tell my parents that I wanted to switch schools. Because because you're already kind of this. How long is that before? How how long did you figure that out but I want to be like? Hey I thought I was moving now can a move back home exactly. I was like a fine. I'll do something for a semester and I'll figure something else out I'll figure like I had really strong ideas about English anyway and some other things you know so I was like well. I'll do this but no I went straight acting. I couldn't stop it. It's just like a a eight keeps coming to you. You know I always like.
