How to Call People In (Instead of Calling Them Out)
"Loretta great to meet you. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me on your show. Fortunately or unfortunately this is the perfect moment to have you on I wish it was a calmer moment in history but given that it's not i'm glad that Have the chance to talk to you. When i woke up on wednesday morning after the election. I was you for 'cause. I knew that we had turned georgia blue. And in five hours later i was Because we have so much further to go to bring our country back from the brink of self destruction and so royal emotions right now because i fear for our democracy even though i call myself the queen of the call in culture. There's some people. I don't want to call it at all. I'm gonna call him out because they enabled this insurrection. Seems to be that. If they can't control it they don't wanna share a democracy. You said before that you have the the the moniker of the queen of the call in culture. Do you have any hope that there are some constructive calling in that can be done at this time in a country where we are really at each other's throats all at each other's throat if you don't mind out indulging me tell you how i see the world i think that first of all i live in ninety percent bubble of people who are progressive sometimes even call us radical which i don't mind i consider that a compliment but the people that i most in conversation with. We understand that. There's things like racism. Sexism homophobia transphobia immigration violence. At all of that stuff going in the world we even have our own little lexicon of all the 'isms that we talk about and part of my problem is that we in the ninety percent bubble. Spend too much time trying to turn ourselves into one hundred percent. i like. we're supposed to perfectly align with every thought as if i work on women's rights that means i'm doing something wrong because i'm not working on trance. Right if are working on trance rights. Doing something wrong. If i'm not working on racial justice on and on and on that's why i call us a circular firing squad because we're all on the same team but we spend our best anger on each other for not being cult members. We're all supposed to be. Apparently one hundred percent aligned. Outside of us are what. I call the seventy five percenters. These are people. Who don't use our insider jargon of homophobia all of these other words but they're lined with us in a world view. So since i'm a women's rights activists a seventy five percent for me would be somebody like the girl scouts where they may not be organizing the girl scouts to market a protests. Like i would. But at the same time they worked for women's and girls empowerment so they will be my ally even if they are repelled by jargon. So i'm gonna to find a way to talk to them in a register the fake it here versus the register that i used for the ninety percenters. Outside of the seventy five percenters are the middle of the roaders. Did a fifty percent of those people like my parents. My father was a lifer in the military in the army very conservative retired. After twenty six years my mother was a southern evangelical christian woman and there probably wasn't a whole lot of common language evacuate us from ninety percent bubble on my parents but at the same time. They taught me their values. And i'll tell you a conversation that my mom had. I had one day back in the fifties. My mother has started a black girl. Scout troops in san antonio was because black girls want allow to join the white girl scouts troops and every weekend we had to cook food and feed it to the homeless people in san antonio and so mom could never figure out hat what is social justice. Human rights activists did and finally. I put it to us and mom deliver when we had to feed the homeless people when i was a girl scout and she of course she she said yes. I said well as human rights activists. I asked why they're hungry in the first place and she got it because she said oh okay i feed them and you wanna know why they're hungry and so you can use that kind of values driven language to talk to fifty percents if you stay away from your jargon and your assumptions that they don't have values that you can agree with
Electric Propulsion is Positively Electrifying
"Instead of fire. The exhaust produced by electric propulsion is glowing. Greenish blue trail reminiscent of science fiction. Movie but engineers like dr. peter peterson at nasa glenn. Research center are making electric propulsion a reality whereas electric propulsion as we carry our energy from basically from the solar arrays or light from the sun and we convert that energy from the sun until electricity. Then we put that electricity into a device that i is is a propellant accelerates it out to produce thrust an electric propulsion system iannes or positively charges inert gas propellants. Like zima. there isn't we use z. Non as you can imagine a promotion system is basically a person sitting on a spacecraft thrown. Baseball's the heavier the baseball throw the more progressive. You get be throw big softball or a bowling ball. you're gonna get more thrust. and z. Nine is the heaviest gas we can use for that advanced propulsion systems can run for years at a time enabling new missions that will make the future of space exploration positively electrifying

Arizonans 65 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next week
"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks.

It was the perfect time for edna. Boil to offer a plea deal to barb ann. Eli the first one to accept would serve less time since testimony from an accomplice makes for a stronger case. Barb was given two options either twenty three years to life or fifteen years to life plus three years for using a gun for eli fifteen years to life. We're going to fast forward now to august twenty seventh so this is just a few weeks before eli trial was set to begin you. Light ends up. Accepting edna boils deal and he agrees to plead guilty to complicity to commit murder in return for a lighter sentence. He would testify against barber in an office. At the sheriff's department at add boil sat with. Eli his lawyer. Andrew hide detectives he and maxwell and lieutenant garrison they were finally going to get allies version of the truth on record more disarming than his words was allies stoic presence and described it like this. You lie was very matter of fact what struck me. The most was when we asked him. And that was the last time you saw your wife alive. And he said very coldly yes. It was chilling. Hide saw the same impenetrability from ally. He'd later say there was no remorse. There was some emotion but it was all about how it was affecting him. He was focused on me. Take me out of this mess. What the detective saw so clearly an ally his ego and his creed was always barbs. Blindspot when edna boil had given barb the chance to help herself by testifying against eli. Barb remain true. Her ex lover as edna put. She thought eli wouldn't testify. She thought witnesses wouldn't show so. Barb ended up turning down the plea deal and the offers were taken off the table for good.

"Locked up and away. You also mailed a letter to his kids. And i've got that note here. This is some of what he said to them was wishing i could be home and go to church with you but i can't right now. Children i miss you so much and how. I wish i could see you and talk to you. I cry every day to see you and your mom. My heart hurts very bad for you. All children pray for me. So i can come home again. It would make me so happy and this is coming from a father who was willing to blow his kids up order to get out of his marriage his decision to then send these notes shows how tone deaf as to the situation. Allies words seemed to show more remorse for his actions landed him in jail than fraud plotting. Barbara's death and abandoning his kids. The letters really are disturbing. They talk about how much he loved barbara. How he wanted to be with her and he wanted to come home and be a good father to them that he was just you know urging them also. I think to speak up on his behalf that he could be rehabilitated. And he was saying things like you know i i just wanna come home. Don't you want me to come home. Don't you wish. I was in your arms instead of here in jail so i mean this is another manipulation tactic and that's really all it is. It's unclear whether the kids ever got to read these letters but soon after receiving them their aunt fanny took the notes over to the police. David miller never responded to allies letter either. Strangely enough the only person who seemed open to engaging with ally was ed roeber. Ed how are you not too good. Ally was the one who initiated the conversation. Not too good Yeah hey what's the deal. I seen your wife in here the other day they can you hear me. Let's fast forward through some of the back and forth nothing too important. The flow of the call is for obvious reasons. Kind of clunky. Well then what's the deal. I mean wow. Wow but you know. They got text messages. You said they got what they do. Have text texts. That's what they're going by yet. But if your wife was home and you can prove you was at home. I mean what's the deal. I don't know i don't know what their problem is. Ally went on to tell ed how surprised he was the bar was at the arraignment as if he didn't know she'd been arrested. He seemed to be occurring. Eds favor this way. All in all the call seem pretty aimless. So why was eli reaching out to ed. You ended up calling it again and this time. His intentions became clear. He asked at if he would loan him some money to help him with bail. Set to the tune of one million dollars and to pay for an attorney at of course refused eli. He couldn't even afford to get a lawyer for his own wife but his willingness to interact with ally to answer questions and follow his advice. Looks really bad. Maybe ed is just another victim. Allies manipulation edsa devout man so he might have been an easy target for someone like eli after all allies shown. He's a master. Using other people's vulnerabilities against he's charmed countless women for his sexual pleasure for sure but it goes beyond even that he's convinced his bishops to let him come back home after leaving numerous times and now he's managed to turn ed into an informant of sorts. You line knows how to twist believes into a weapon he can use against them and since we're talking about using others. I think it's a good time to introduce miss. Jamie jamie is twenty five year old cellmate and is about to become a big part of barbara. We chase we know that. Barb told she was going to keep a low profile in jail by now though. You should also expect barb to do just about everything that she's told ed she hasn't done. So it's no surprise that. Barb isn't keeping to herself it turns out she has built quite a rapport with jamie. You see jamie was a veteran of the prison system. She was serving time for petty theft and violation of parole. She previously been incarcerated in jail for corruption of a youth for a sexual encounter. She'd said was consensual. And this is a sort of offense that you do not want other inmates to know about once you're marked as a sex offender. You're in for a pretty rough time. Suffice it to say jamie wanted out asap plus. She had a daughter of her own and she wanted to get back home door. So jamie started getting close to bar making her think she could trust jamie with her secrets. Jamie also opened up to barb. Her body was covered in tattoos to honor the things she'd been through in our short life so far. she's only in her early twenties. She started to share those stories. She told barb about the angel wings and the name tattooed on her right shoulder was the name of her fiance. Who died in a car crash. Jamie also wrote a few nice letters to barb. And here's one of them my dearest. Barb hey i just wanted to tell you that i appreciate everything you've done for me. I'm so glad to have you. You're not only like a mom to me. You're like my best friend thank you. I hope we can hang out on the outside. I have faith that good things come to you yours. Truly jamie jamie had written the letter just five days before she wrote to judge bill. Rickett the man who'd sentenced jamie jail. She told the judge that she had some information on the amish case that was taking over the headlines if she shared them with the detectives and prosecutors on the case. Maybe your own sentence could be shortened. Soon after she sent the letter. Detective he reached out. You can promise anything but he ended up sending her letter along her probation officer and two assistant. Da edna boil jamie shared the notes. She secretly taken on barb. She jotted down fourteen pieces of information. Like how ally had given barbed the money to buy a gun for him. And how far had purchased a four ten gauge shotgun at a store owned by her cousin. Barb claimed eli had asked for other people to kill barbara and that on the night of the murder she didn't end up. The house had left the basement door open because he'd left his wallet in her car so she'd only gone over to throw the wallet into the basement so instead you. I had asked barb to send over two men with guns to look for him and then to kill barbara. When they couldn't find him she had also talked about the disposal of the murder weapon. How said he'd sold it but he'd actually hidden it in a case outside somewhere in the shrubbery surrounding the property. Barb said she was worried about how we're fingerprints. Were all over the gun. She also told jamie about the suicidal thought she was having. She talked about putting her blanket through holes in the top bunk and tossing it over the side and hanging herself. The detectives alerted jail supervisors about the suicide threat. Then they took the latest information on the murder weapon and began searching allies outbuildings and the rubber house for the gun case when assistant. Da at jamie had on barb. She figured despite jamie's own flaws she was credible enough to put on the witness. Stand plus at this point. There's pressure on the sheriff's department to make a case as quickly and as quietly as possible. The murder was starting to affect tourism. The months of jail time. We're wearing down. Barb and ed too. I wanna know just for my sake i mean. Why are you sitting in their body. That is what i don't know. I mean the lord won't let you sit in prison for.

Yeah the whole compound Oh sure in in Manger Square. So here's A Bethlehem homemaker. Her fifty three years old is what she has changed since we are proud. That the part that part of the mangers back in Bethlehem because we feel that the soul of God is with us more than before four and Sandy Shannon had had jason. She says it's a small piece. We thought it'd be bigger the mangers coming back without it'd be the whole thing. Oh my God but then we saw hi. That is funny not very impressive. No the reliquary is impressive. Okay Yeah Relic. And there's there's always the case I distinctly remember seeing a finger of doubting Thomas Right also not. It's just a little piece of finger. Finger touched the pokes. The sides the wounds of Jesus. Yeah yeah very important finger. Outing Thomas Definitely not the finger of Downing Remember seeing that scene like oh I saw I think I saw a spine nine little little Like a thorn There was supposed to be from like the crown of Thorns. Oh right of course see. I think this is what happens when you spend the cross. When he was in Rome? Yeah so a lot of Shit I saw some shit and roll man. I'm never going back. Saw Pieces Somebody's skull but I don't remember who that was. I'm sure you did. Yeah there's all sorts it's listen this whole relic business. It's an ugly business. The people the people are ripped apart. Oh four corners of the earth. They really are. It's amazing and probably not the right person. No one hundred percent not the right person. I mean you get a little later. And it's a saint and whatever and then they start. Yeah but like how gruesome has that Shit they start just just ripping them to shreds. Oh give me a toe to toe the tove doubting Thomas. Exactly I mean you kind of miss the point I'm a dealer in lesser reliquary significant one. But it's still pretty important. I got I got Saint Thomas. Acquaintances elbow doesn't mean anything. But this is pretty good anyway I I am going to take us to Arizona where yeah that's correct uh-huh on this show. There's never been mentioned of the name Arizona without there. Being you know about it happen to you Arizona Kazakina. What are you guys going on? So get your so great. Yeah really should realize that. Canyon that Big Grand Canyon in writing the name for Christ's sake you've got a whole state between you and Texas. You guys should be fine. You're right next to California. For God's everything should should be okay over there but it's not any who so there was a this is this is the story of a chaplain chaplain in a jail. which is not necessarily a great thing? this chaplain was in a women's jail and and He apparently used his position to molest several of the inmates. This particular alert Chaplaincy. Apparently has he had the power to these. Women were not allowed to not go when he summoned them. Oh Oh God so you know the the the lawsuit or he has pled guilty to this so he definitely did it now. Now he's trying to to get a plea deal going Apparently one of one of his accusers. no sorry. He pled guilty one of his victims. was brought in for a just for Bible study for Private Bible Study. That's never a good idea. Can I just make that a quick announcement private Bible study one on one always about idea unless you're hoping to score with the other person but yes No so this Guy Yeah Brooklyn Do we think she's a young person. A younger woman. Okay and he at first he. It's it's really creepy. He called her. He said he thought of her as is a daughter and and gave her candy. which apparently something that you don't get in jail? And then he started he. You started saying things like you're beautiful and I want to see you in a bikini. And then and then he physics and then he forced himself funner groped her genitals etcetera and. She's not the only one. Yeah so and he had been given a lot of power in leeway because he had been vetted by anybody. None of God God that it him. God hisself God I chose him and I think if there's one thing we can. They called him from the last forty years it's God's chosen men. They're all good men and you're safe. Why why forty years old? We are no going back. I was trying to sort of approximate. When when the The Boston Globe broke down. I don't remember when that was. I think we all know it's been going on for centuries obvious okay. I was just trying to sort of win. Win this bloated. Yeah Gotcha now I understand anyway. He's a bad guy. I hate stories like at their. I know I just I don't yeah. They're hard to make fun of. Yeah it's it's not it's not great. I mean that's that's my take away. Here's the thing is it's hard can't make fun not an the easy joke here. Here's a picture of Douglas. Packard was the former chaplain. He looks like he was a mob. Enforce God what's up with him. Yeah definitely. Don't want to see him in a bikini. No anyway all right Dan yeah. I got an story from Canada uh-huh Ontario. Yeah sure that's one of the site one of the great provinces of. Oh yeah home to the the the M- the Maple leafs. Yeah yes Well apparently you know like we get down on ourselves. The law about the religious nut jobs in this country. Sure right and it's always nice and the Canadians are so polite that they've provided us with an example of we don't have to feel too bad right. God bless America. Don't worry they're saying we've got our crazies too. It should all over to feel so bad. Yeah all right. A article describes her as a devoutly religious woman who kept her husband's decomposing corpse in a bedroom for six months. Because she was convinced he would be resurrect. Oh shit up up. Come on. And it wasn't just her. It was also her her five children. Okay and they're seven housemates and they. They prayed daily for him. To live again please. Slater interviewed the Mall. Lake to the children's Children's The couple's older children and a few of roommates and they said that they all said they believed that he would be resurrected. So this was like this was. I don't know why they thought this was going to be the first one actually happened or why they've never seen this work any other time in their life breath. This was the time that it was going to work but they were convinced Tan. I just love it I love you know what. Here's the thing I just. I respect the the hell out of there. The courage of their convictions. Yeah they're clearly idiots. I respect the hell out. Because so many people claim to believe that this power exists right now. They gave it a good shot they really dove in. You know she kept the door locked in order to keep the children out which just wrap your head around that one for a second? Let's lock the store so the children can't go visit dad I guess And they also duct tape on the door seems and vents throughout the house in order to keep the smell in in the room oh decomposing yeah The police when they discovered the body obviously was in a state of decomposition and John McCain And so so the.

What you see is what you get and my plant is now at this point in my life do all can. Why can't I know that we'll come attack? Can't but I won't regret what I did not do. Bobby says that regardless of people's backgrounds the blues can unify. What you black white or what have you only thing that I know that links people together if you got a good beat you like what you're doing and you can prove that you do you do you do it. Well you don't have to lack. Mays said Damn I don't like it but damn good and reaches especially the call me and really that's how the blues keeps living on dresses. Those elemental feelings that all humans have and it does it in ways that allow anyone to hear the music as part of their own story. I love somebody to water. Though some love some Sonny Boy Williamson. I like a lot of things about press and the Michael Jackson to new kind of stuff when you put them all together. I got a piece of all of that and put it in my crawling and I put in a Bo is stood up. You get Roy suit. Bobby says some things about the blues can be taught but not everything you can teach out of Play Guitar. Traum in estimate you can teach them how to do which can't teach. You may not do what I do. Whatever president did did you'd be born to do that. I'm born to do this bobby. Rush was born to do it and it's been evident for decades to end this episode. I want to circle back to the glorifying. Von Sisters in Farmville North Carolina as. I sat in that little church where Alice's the pastor talking with her and her sisters. We began to talk about freedom about strength and about where we found solace in. Rough Times listened to Alice. I got my old man. I need my whole night attending Mile Biz. So you know. I don't let people's influence me if I don't do do it. I'm not a week woman. I'm a strong man. I think there are some people who have let religion split off from people and they'll that never fell right because you don't care what faith you are listening right. You can listen. You can listen more to Assam. Light Light said like Mason. Gracia can be going through trials and tribulations Hamza come up in Crown Mate. You forget about all things you've been through but you know that this property. Roberson dudas Florida Molehill mazing grace. That was one of the things I had in common with the vine sisters. I grew up without song just like they did. Not Everybody knows the story of that song. Mazing grace was written in seventeen seventy nine by a man named John Newton. Newton's profession slave trader on his ship the Greyhound he hauled human cargo from West Africa to North America but thirty one years before he wrote that song the Greyhound took its last voyage with Newton at the helm for two weeks Newton and his crew fault vicious storms that carry the ship northward in vastly off course. Newton took the storms as a message from God that his trade was not godly. Not In the least and years later he wrote Amazing Grace. His testament that he had been blind but had learned to see after Alice. Vines brought up that song to me. She invited me to sing it with her sisters. Am I saying voice saying what it used to be? But that ain't the point.

"Here on this long and tedious journey. Yeah So a lot of folks Dan. You grew up with the church music and graduated into something that was had a lot in common with Fisher and that was the blue and like where did the blues start coming in on top of you in addition to the search music probably around age fourteen twelve hours? Studying THE BOOZE. I started always been aware of different genres amusing from country. Music reggae all way around and When I heard Blues I understood. It was something that was like a parallel to Gospel. Gospel and Blues gave birth to like all of these. But people don't know that I everything come from those two in Jay is awesome and so about twelve and I. I oughta still. My Dad always played different records and stuff around the house so yeah Oh Hank Williams Tracy Chapman Bob Marley The win if I if everything everything So I was getting in touch with the way her muddy waters and through muddy waters. He kind of made an link. Go off in my mind like the connection between the two. I'm it's so interesting that you say that because like out of all the you know the genuinely old blues greats is only one. I ever got to see really live. Yeah most people when they think about the blues whom they know the names Robert Johnson may know muddy waters. But they kind of think like it's an old art for you know and then everybody every now and then somebody comes along. Who reminds them that? It Ain't dead a bit. That is a living thing like you know Tim. Duffy who founded the Music Makers Relief Foundation? He said something to me like you know. He started that whole foundation after he went on this. Search to find this gator player that very few people had heard of but was allegedly like a wizard named guitar. Gabriel in North Carolina her. Well when tim found him he said Gabe told me that the blues is a spirit. It never dies. How how do you feel that spirit? I started looking at the history of blue specifically in Georgia so a lot of people look over Georgia impact on blue but the reason that a lot of people don't talk about is because a lot of the blue musician George had already passed before the rediscovered so in the twenties it was a big boom of Georgia. Blues Musician Columbia records recorded his first black blues musician in Atlanta guy named piglet how and then in the guy from Latvia Name Barbecue Bob Ryan Statesborough the host borough blew that all my brother got from Taj Mahal with Taj Mahal. Got From Blind Will Matteo who has from Statesboro the marina down in Columbus Georgia who the Arthur C C Radha who went on to be entrepreneurs so many people in Georgia that did so many things for blues but who are looking at up and finding out so I was born in Lagrange Georgia which is troop county and the county. I went to school in the Hogan's bill. George I found I Hogan Reverend there by the name of J M Gates. He was the first commercial re Reverend to record on record and recorded countless numbers of size and he told a guy named Thomas Dorsey who was originally a Blues Piano Player from Villa. Rica Georgia who went on to be the father of the Black Gospel. Music wrote the song fresh orange. And so once I start figuring all this stuff out and my grandma and Granddad and know about the people and I heard about the light so if that deep but we we normally get washed over a lot with the Mississippi guys I Chicago but is a wonderful rich history. Right here as you know. And that's so interesting because you know when you really dive into the different ways blues comes out in the South there meaning distinct style for sure no the Carolina. Piedmont is different from southwest Georgia. Which Is Different From Delta Blues in Mississippi? Which is different from the Hill Country Blues Farther? That's true so What Colorado time is emulating direct time piano.

"I got. Y'All see how that blue torches passed down walking. Blues was first performed by Robert Johnson of Mississippi in nineteen thirty six it was adapted by muddy waters in nineteen forty one and now John TVs will is has his own spin. I I met John Davis in April. Twenty nineteen at the word of South Festival in Tallahassee. Florida he came to perform on our bitter southerner stage at that festival and I was blown away because he just seamlessly channels the early Blues Greats and he rides new blue songs for his own generation. I had the great good fortune to get a performance from him at Georgia Public Broadcasting's Atlanta's studio and he says the Blues to him reminds him a lot of the Gospel music. He grew up with his kid away. When the Church has a Yankee and we will it wasn't contemporary all southern Black Baptist. Hurt so much. The tempo much time and much of the Phrase and the vocal phrase with the same so when I heard blues easy to translate over. I don't know if you could answer this next question. Exactly I try. But it'd be I'd be interested to know like is there one song from the Baptist Church that sticks with you lack of all the things that you sang in play grown-up in that church Gave you give me one? I play on the different as vocal so in Blues and Gospel Music. The music is secondary right. But it's the message so this is one of my grandmother and great grandmother and grandfather.

"Meeting Gabe and all these other elderly musician helped him see that there was so much talent out there among artists who were ever given the chance to be financially successful. Here's Denise Duffy their record companies you know. These artists are not attracted to them. Because you know they're too old to climate of and Humped Road. Twenty eight nights a month sleeping on people's couches into the hall. You know the industry is just not functioning for them. The Duffy's wanted to change that and they got some help from a fellow named mark. Levinson Levinson is held in high reverence by audio nerd. Sue have twelve thousand dollars to drop on a turntable like if you buy a new lexus automobile today. Your top tier audio option is a system designed by Mark Levinson but when the Duffy's met him in Nineteen Ninety-four. He planted the idea of the music maker. Relief Foundation in their heads. He was the one that said. You know you we can try and get you know we're going to try and get these guys real record contracts real gigs. But in the meantime everyone starving you know. Why don't you start a nonprofit that can help by people? Choose and pay the light bill until you get them enough gigs to keep go from there. The Duffy's were able to get more support from wealthy donors but their biggest breakthrough came not from one particular wealthy donor but from a tobacco company from Winston cigarettes which is the company that gave Guitar Gabriel's hometown its name Winston. Salem North Carolina batchelor turns out that the Winston Brand had bought a twenty page ad in the upcoming Thirtieth Anniversary Edition of Rolling Stone magazine and they needed content to fill those twenty pages and it turned out that someone who worked at the local AD agency that handled the Winston account was also volunteering at the music maker Relief Foundation. This guy works at the agencies like all I volunteer for this full nonprofit. You see these pictures in whips out the pictures Tim had taken for our newsletter and they're like photos are amazing. Who are these artists in huge star? Telling the stories of these artists in there like yet this is going to be the ad campaign can actually the first time I ever heard of the museum. It is the most imprint of any blues photos in the history of the world. History is a twenty million dollars Z. Said they I they do this rolling stone issue and they just decided they're going to be these big photos with Choline each artist guitar maker. Asir Right Ain't been in the pawnshop eight. The Blues can't play the Blues. Great were quotes from the Arnold. Who's already and then they'd just this teeny Winston logo at the bottom. It was it was beautifully done and so they do the first asset series as people like this is great. We're now going to put twenty five percent of our ad budget on this music maker campaign so in twenty five percent of the which which at the time so it was number two at the time. And they're spending fifty million dollars. A YEAR ON AD says twelve million dollars to spend on publicize in and they decide. Well what are we going to talk about? These acts like we wanna go to fifty major month lease and one hundred twenty five weeklies in the country. How are we going to engage people? And they said we're going to do. Why don't we do a tour? Because then that gives us an excuse to go into all the major markets and engage with our customers. And we're like we think that's a fabulous so like Weenie Taj Mahal type rockstars Tonya. My Heroes Guy. Really Nice man called tiny with all these artists here no problem with as long as the height of the tobacco wars. And we're like sprint guys. Go Yeah because we were like. Oh always this immoral to take tobacco money to go and talk to the artists. And they're like immoral. What link we've been making North Carolinas Carolina African Americans from Carolinas. They're like we made our living off tobacco pipe. Why don't we take their money? They've grown the tobacco the role tobacco tobacco for her. Yeah and this is going to be. This is going to be fun. It was going to you know they were Megan. And we had these amazing images and these amazing stories and the talent so you know Tim Calls Taj. We put together this tour of Tosh going out with Cudi stark and Neil pacman Beverly Watkins John Holman in every Shit. We would put on these incredible. We did forty two cities. We'd put on these incredible four to six hour. Marathon shows of blues and People. It was fabulous and the guys. I split those money with the guys like Aaron is from. They're making five grand a weekend and staying in four star hotels guys. The guys that were destitute. Eighty thousand dollars ear. Yeah it was. It was a big deal now. Over twenty five years music maker has extended that hand to more than four hundred musicians it has recorded more than seven thousand performances commercially released about twenty five hundred songs. The number of grants it's extended to musicians now. Tops twelve thousand and music maker believe it or not does all this work with an annual operating budget of only about a million dollars but they've learned how to stretch that money to keep music and history alive through generations support the torch bearers so they can then take the torch and pass it on to the next generation because otherwise if nobody does that every time one of these artists die then the treasure trove of cultural knowledge that they have with them if they've not been recorded if we don't have their their oral history if we don't have their picture. Every time one of these guys dies you're gone nonstandard. That is the voice of one of the Torchbearers Precious Bryant of Waverly Hall Georgia. She died in two thousand thirteen when she was seventy one years old before her death precious saw her career flourished thanks to the music maker found. They gave her a monthly stipend for prescription Madison for food for utility bills and in addition they produce precious his album and helped her booking travel the shows across the US and abroad and to top it off even hooked up with two guitars. She started playing way back when she was nine years. Old Head. This some what you call the family get bigger than I told it dragged around and I kept on to let me a little usually loan. Santa Claus will come to you. I started with as many ways. Blues WAS PRECIOUS WAY OF COMMUNICATING. And they've been outstanding.

"Most people when they first learned that song here that second one is something like johnny conquer ru and they may be think muddy is referring to a man by that name. And that's what I thought. Back in. Nineteen seventy seven. When I first saw muddy perform but money wasn't saying about a man. He was singing about the root of the plant specifically John. The conqueror root now some people say it John. Conquer some people say John? The conqueror either way that's what it refers to that route represents folk tale that was spread among slaves about a man named. Hi John John was folks say. A slave spirit could not be broken. He was they say a trickster who could always pull the wool over his masters up. Now why did the slaves need a man like John? Well WE'RE GONNA turn to the Great Zora Neale Hurston. Who was as great a folklorist as she was a novelist. This is a portion of what Ms Hurston wrote about. Hi John and it's read by. Gp's La- Raven. Taylor Hi John. The conqueror was a man enfold and had come to live and work on the plantations and all of the slave folks knew him in the flesh. The sign of his men was a laugh and his sinking symbol was wrong. It was an inside thing to live by. It was sure to be hurt when and where the work was hardest and the lot the most cruel it helps us slaves endear. They knew that something better was coming so they laughed in the face of things and saying I'm so glad trouble don't last always and the white people who hurt them were struck dumb that they could laugh owed massacred in no of course but high. John de Conquer. Was there walking his plantation. Like a natural man Tim. Duffy believes the spirit of how John Is.

"Hi this is social media blows. I am Elsa Feed Hyphen. I am your hostess. This is episode one so to start off our first episode. I wanted to talk about what Social Media Blues is. How I got the idea for it and of course Hawaii M and I also wanted to put things a little bit more in context by Tokiwa special relationship with Jack My history through the difference technologies that have evolved over the years that have been life so social media blues what visit on why I got the idea for this but cass last Saturday while I was sitting on my couch and the the reason why is because actually sometimes record myself talking about a topic that I'm struggling with it kind of helps me to just talk it out. Even if I'm the only one who's GonNA listen to it. Sometimes I never even listen to it again but just being able to recorded and and have a recruiter fit kind of helps me through it in that process started talking kind of in a podcast voice and as if I was addressing an audience and I started talking about social media am I skate in my case specifically. I have been struggling with social media for our fears. It's overwhelming thing it causes me a lot of anxiety but I'm also in a bit of a bind because I am not someone that can just walk away from it and and that is the point of this guest is to talk about our struggles or on social media on how to better manage them when you are a creative entrepreneur like me in a businessperson someone that can disconnect from social media mostly for business networking and artistic reasons so yeah that's the point of this podcast and I've been looking for other resources regarding this topic specifically for a while now ever since I opened my new business a professional translator an interpreter of been so for bowed out on my God Helen's nine years. I've been freelance translator and interpreter budge. I'm also a dancer. I'm a belly dancer. Sir and I recently been a dance studio an art events venue that was back in August and so I had to take a much more diligent approach to social media marketing it had to be much more consistent about it than I had been up to that appoint. I mostly use facebook and Instagram I don't really get her but maybe hopefully in the future. We'll be able to do it but for right now. That is mostly what I'm talking about in this podcast but I think it applies to most social media platforms so I started this new Studio Your Business and in the process I had to learn to manage social media marketing content. I was was seeing a coach the social media marketing coach who also offers services of being a social media content manager bud for take. I couldn't afford it at the time so I decided to. Just go for it myself. She provided consulting and definitely helped because it just is kind of painted a clearer picture of what I was supposed to be doing it kind of led me down this path of researching more more and reading more about it. It's not really something that you can just go ahead and do under own without much guidance. At least I can't. I don't have have the intuition for it so have to learn it in a more strategic way and I'll looking for be sources to help me understand it better but I'm never really found anything specifically addressing mental health or people who have personal individual issues with social media while also having to create social media marketing content. It's kind of a special aw bind that you can find yourself in and so when for example I local resources around mental health and social media. It's always this thing of all mental social. Media's is bad for you so walk away from it. This is how a walked away from social media from for nine months or whatever and that's not really realistic. If you're a creative entrepreneur or an artist or someone nudes network constantly so I wanted to to create a space so that I could talk about these issues specifically on what I've been doing to help me share it with other people. Hopefully we can connect over this and you can also share back to me what you think and make suggestions so we can all learn together so. I'm really excited about that looking forward to it so to provide a little a bit of context about Roy. Am I was born in nineteen eighty two in Puerto Rico which is where I live and this is where I'm recording this bing born in the eighties at the top of the means that you don't grow up on the Internet but you're young enough when the eventually the Internet becomes mainstream so that it still has an impact and reliable. Did this shape you the same way as the younger generations my dad always technology enthusiast so we had veto game consoles like Atari and Nintendos and home actually then intendo last video game console we had after that up popped up somewhere. I was like eight nine. I may be I'm not sure where this came from but it was there and we had floppy disks of the time they were floppy because they were like this big square things that were actually literally floppy. That's why they they were called There were a little bit thicker than a piece of paper well. Maybe that's an acceleration but there were about a steak as a car bore piece of cardboard so sorted them and then you had access to the specific program more up that you were trying to access my then. The comparison have really really any color just block why'd you were working mostly out of DOS. There was no operating system as such like windows at the time or maybe it was in the process of being born or maybe there's competitor was to all for its time but I remember those that we had and then there was a computer lab in my school. I don't remember learning anything at all except that there was something called old basic language which is a programming language that was in use at the time and all we ever did in computer clause just hang around and every now and then we would have to make Christmas tree bad consisted off topping out ten brains and a bunch debaucherous and then twin and enter type twenty print bunch fast raised enter thirty print and so on and so forth until did you have created the shape of a Christmas tree that you could then print out that loves it. I don't know to this day. What basic language actually did back then but that was the extent of my experience with it and then around. I don't remember exactly the year but I would step in thirteen or so and we got comfortable home now. Jose in high school ready regards computer the but also Internet back then viewed it. Maybe we use dialup connection for the Internet internet which means we were taken off the phone lines to use the Internet you dial it in time and make this weird noise and you're basically it created a lot of tension in the house when your mom nudity is phone and yeah that I was in that was it I used in mostly to go and chatroom stop people from other countries mostly the US. I got practice my English there which was Nice I'll look up music artists information some lyrics so that that I could understand what the actually they were saying because I could read English but it wasn't very good at understanding especially if it was song so I needed the extra help and I'll look up literature actually oh I would. I was always a bookworm. there were a bunch of things. I wanted to read budge way. Don't have a public library in Puerto Rico so I didn't really have access to that to that resource so I don. I couldn't afford to buy books so the Internet helped that S- and yeah that was it for several years then I didn't have my first cell phone. Taylor was and college. It was was actually house was it maybe two thousand four so because all the payphones were disappearing so my mom got me a cell. L. Phone flip phone of course and then out of flip phone up until about two thousand twelve. You can imagine that the iphone had been around for a while. I saw my first IPHONE out in Grad School. I was twenty eight. One of my classmates had an iphone one that was in two thousand nine and I remember you're being actually horrified by it. I remember seeing her just constantly checking it looking at it and talking about about how wonderful it it was and could do an all. I could think was Oh my God. I can't believe like you can be on all the time like anemia on facebook or I know that all the time that was horrifying to me other than moments in time and so it took me a long time to to to get one but eventually I did and I got it because when I started freelancing I needed to have access to my email all the time because that is how screwed up the freelancing world is and you have to somebody some client emails you about wrote a project. You have to be able to answer right away or you might lose the opportunity so that was my main motivation for getting a smartphone on. I got an iphone hyphen for my first one those back in two thousand twelve social media actually. I got on facebook in two thousand five. I was in an exchange program in France and this girl told me about it on I got on it and it seems really cool at the time I remember it was if I'm very organic. It didn't seem to break too much what had come before but it was revolutionary enough that it was interesting. It allowed me to stay in contact with people that I had met there and it was pretty manageable. I didn't feel like I had to be on it constantly. It was kind of like email it. It wasn't anything crazy and then I think with changes that they introduced the algorithm because he used is to be a linear Tomlin before but when they introduced the algorithm years ago they changed the whole setup of the thing how how many posted or who's post you saw what you saw before whatever else or I will time so just come changing the nature of how the content was delivered on. I think that's where kind of things got crazy because then people started using different strategies to try to gain the algorithm he eats. Maybe those strategies that have made everything so overwhelming on. I remember that I got an instagram aw I because of that.
