A highlight from Shadows of a Silhouette - Fortune Favours The Fortunate
"Welcome to Let's Be Frank, the men's mental health podcast. Join us as we break the stigma, embrace vulnerability and prioritize mental health in men. Together, let's use your voice. Guys, welcome back to Let's Be Frank, the home of men's mental health. Today, we have got a brilliant rock and roll quarter in the house that go by the name of Shadows of a Silhouette. And the sound is a fusion of alternative, rebellious and personal vibes. Coming from the heart of England, this band has released over 25 original tracks on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. We're joined by Nathan Tyler, who, along with friend Greece, have been creating music for four years, turning out more than 50 songs on SoundCloud and major platforms. Drawing inspiration from legends like Arctic Monkeys, Bowie and Nirvana, the music has even graced BBC introduces for the East Midlands. And they've rocked the Metrodome in Nottingham. They've also played the Quarry Stage during the Wyandotte Festival in front of 2000 fans, an experience that fueled their passion for music. This year, they have hit the main stage at Wyandotte Festival, producing an unforgettable show. So guys, girls, stay tuned as we dive into the guys world and discover what drives this band's unstoppable journey. But as always, let's check in with resident host Mr Ryan Smith. How are you doing, mate? What an introduction that was, eh? I'll tell you what the hell's going on. This is like the big time now, isn't it? This is just like, I'm going to say so rock and roll, but that's like, I think that's more like 60s rather than the 90s, I don't know. Anyway, I just know I'm older than most of this band put together. So, yeah, no, absolutely brilliant to get these guys on. I'm feeling good. Started watching the ice hockey today, you know, a little bit late jumping on with you just because of the ice hockey. But do you know what? I'm in a good place. So, yeah, guys, welcome to the show. How are you all doing? Well, thank you. Thank you for having us on. You say you're a lot older than us all put together, but we all know, mate, you're still 21 in that. Hard to show if it was, but we break through and still look like a one year old messing about. Bless you, bless you, bless you. Panthers or Steelers? Don't mention that second one. No, if you mention that second one, you mention that second one and we'll just stop this right now. All right. No, no, no. I didn't realise. That's all right then. That's all right then. Yeah, yeah, Panthers, Panthers through and through. No, but guys, honestly, welcome to the show. We've been throwing a couple of conversations back and forth for a bit now and it's finally here. So, you know what? Guys, introduce yourselves. Well, we're Shadows of a Silhouette and, of course, we're a four piece band from Derby. We just, Derbyshire, we try and focus on sounds that are a bit more like authentic, like through and through. Even all of us playing our own instruments on songs like you wouldn't think that to be something that you'd be lacking in the music industry. But actually, nowadays it's more dominated by electronic simulated sounds. I'm Nathan Brown, the lead singer. I've got Rhys Carter, lead guitarist. And Ferg's in Corfu at the minute, but we've also got Tyler Anderson, our drummer. Fantastic. So, yeah, guys, I managed to listen to your latest track that's going to be released, I think, later this month. You know, well, later in September. We're recording this at the beginning of September. But, you know, you're going to be releasing that one. I'll tell you what, I was listening to my car on the way back from Mansfield earlier and it's catchy and I get it. You know, it's I think it speaks. So, yeah, I'm looking forward to that being released. It's my personal favourite song that we've written for a long time. Yeah, it's fun to play in all life. Yeah, it's quite political. It's a banger. But, you know, it's really like a partial political. It doesn't really speak to supplement anybody else, any political party or belief system. It's more for the common man, isn't it? Yeah, it's just more for the common good side of politics. The politics doesn't actually get spoken about in politics. No, no. And, you know, I actually thought, you know, it actually reminded me of sort of Age of the Shadow puppets. Like Shadow puppets? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So, yeah, it's that sort of... You're sorry? It's funnily enough the first band I ever saw live, actually. Yeah, that's why it's had that sort of beat to it, that sort of rhythm to it. And it just, yeah, you know, it was good, it was good. Well, I'll take that. Anyway, no, absolutely. What was the whole process behind writing that song? So, what was your thinking behind it and kind of how long has it taken you to... Well, I had a riff kicking about from the start of lockdown, really. Obviously, we couldn't practice, so... We were writing other songs. Got me loop pedal, yeah, and got the riff down. But we didn't really touch it until about, when was it? Like January? It started kicking it about, didn't we? We got some drums on it, and then Nathan wrote, as he does with most of our tracks, wrote all the lyrics for it. And, yeah, it's... It came quite quick, though, didn't it? It was just one of them, like, kick your fingers movement when you and us rehearsing. And then it just, we just all looked at each other and just thought, this is awesome, this. And then Nathan's writing side to it. It just... Put the structure together. Put the structure together, and then, like I say, it was just about... The words just came straight out. It's this one. Yeah, it's what we opened up the main stage with one or two as well. Yeah, it's brilliant. It's quite... Yeah, like, straight in your face, isn't it? Tempo, it's got tempo, it's got attitude. It's like hitting a knockout punch in the first round. It is a cracker, it is truly a cracker. It is really a cracker. Yeah, the lyrics, the lyrics. And it was, as you say, it... It's just the whole idea of that track. Straight in your face. Yeah, that's what we wanted. It's a song to get people's attention, really. And then it's... You know, who are these? And then it's... We've got you in the palm of his hand then. Crick up your ears. Also, it's an expression of that... Those little thoughts we all have about, you know, on a daily basis, when we're considering what's going on in the world around us. It's just a... No. With our ability to create media, to add into the great ocean of it, we think certain songs come out in principle, or because of principle, that something to have been spoken like that, or in a way, just for some... It can be heard from somewhere by someone. It's just about the rich going rich and the poor going poor early on, isn't it? Well, it's about the trap. We're all trapped. It seems like we're... The fucking mouse trap's already come down over us, and we're all stuck, you know. But life keeps going by for everyone as an individual. But there's a stranglehold on a lot of us, personally, as people trying to get through this world, but it's so slow for some people who don't have to suffer it. So, looking at kind of that... You know, looking at the song, are you speaking from your own sort of backgrounds and stuff as well, your own experiences? I think it's kind of impossible not to, of course. Like, when you are writing Straight From the Heart, not all of our songs are, right? Because sometimes it's nice to write a song about an idea that doesn't paint a memory. It's just... But then again, on the other hand of that, a lot of our tunes are personal anyway. Especially over the last couple of years, with what's gone off with Reece and Nathan and stuff like that. So, it's a way that I sort of... I'm sure Nathan's probably the same as to get these thoughts that are in your head. I have to get them out on paper and write them down about lyrics or poetry and then channel that into some of that music, which then becomes something tangible. The thoughts that you've got in your head, for me, it's the perfect way to sort of... Say what you want over it. Yeah, get it out and... To make room. Then it becomes relatable, because although it's personal to you, other people can then relate to that and hear what you're saying. Like, yeah, I know what you're on about here. Well, certainly we want to know what it feels like when they can hear the fact that we're getting something off our chest in these songs. Yeah, yeah. Because it's not whitewashed at all, really. We all work full -time, full -time jobs. We didn't go to uni or study music or anything. We came together because we all... Look like rockin' art. Look like rockin' art. We think it's one of the best things in the world. It's a freedom from life. That's good the thing about music, where it doesn't matter what race you are, doesn't matter what religion you are, everybody can come together and just be in the same field or at a venue and enjoy the same thing. Everything goes out the window. It's a universal language. And there's a lot of culture where we come from, a lot of working culture of people working really hard, raising families, but not really making enough time for themselves. We come from an area in the East Midlands where lot a of insufferable mental health is right there on the surface, but people don't even talk about it. They all know what's going on with each other. I know Jack's got a question for you, but obviously we've just jumped on beforehand and where I live, it's actually, what, five, ten minutes from... Not even ten minutes, is it, from where a couple of you guys live? So I get what you're saying. You're looking at the smaller sort of outlying villages that are ex -coal mining places. It's a similar sort of state in Wales. It's a similar sort of state in Lancashire, Yorkshire and things like this. And it's these forgotten roots. And listening to that track that you've shared with us, you can really hear what you guys are trying to achieve. So it's more of an observation rather than a question. But I know Jack's got a question for you. Before we come, because obviously we're going to look at your personal journeys and kind of delve into there and prod around a little bit, but while we're on the subject of why not, I want to ask you guys, how was that experience going main stage? It didn't even seem like that much of... There was a feeling of being out of place, but also at the same time being exactly where we're going. Yeah, it wasn't imposter syndrome, but you feel like... The best thing is if you feel like you've earned it, but then you also feel that if you're not getting nervous for a gig like that, I think you've got to get nervous to some degree, because at the end of the day, you're entertaining people and everyone's around on you to put a good show out. And then we just hope we deliver. And that's like, it doesn't matter how much of a buzz we've got to have to play. And the first thing I said to people closest to me was, did you like enjoy it? It's not about us, it's about the fans. Yeah. But the experience is just... What was that feedback like? Oh, brilliant, yeah. Absolutely awesome.

A highlight from #49: The Gameshow - Part 3
"Bye bye. Mirko, I hope you win. You hope I win, why? Because that was so good. I agree. Did you guys like it? Yes. I loved it. So Kyle, you rated it at eleven. Yeah, I think it's eleven. I think it's David Bowie, that's the honour of them. Do I have to do it out of ten though? Did you say ten? Yeah, but you know, I chose eleven because you can eat moustache, and you can file with it on top, so yeah. What, is it bread on top? Innit, bread's on top. But, right now I'm rating Lily Anne and Mirko. So, Lily Anne has to get... She has to get nineteen to beat Mirko. And if she gets eighteen, then it's a tie. It's a tiebreaker. Yeah? But what did you win? We rated you a twenty because Kyle gave you an eleven, and I gave you a nine just to even it out. Alright, so Lily has to get eighteen. Kyle, what did you rate Lily's? Oh, you're going first mate, you're going first. No, no, no, no Pinky, I'm not in the runners. You were going first. Kyle, please, I'm doing it just because you can rate it. Just saying. I rate it a nine. Oh, a ten and Lily has won. A nine, a tie. And anything less than nine, Mirko has won. So, and I rate it a nine out of ten. It's a tie. Of course, it has to be a tie. Are you only doing this with a tie? Yeah. You're making a tie. Who do you want to win? Like new, Mirko. Oh, you know what, we'll do a vote. A vote? How can we vote? I'll ask Kyle, I'll vote myself, and then I'll ask Oliver. Well, Oliver's going to be salty because he got eliminated basically because of me. Yeah. That's advice. So, what if Oliver's doing like another talent? Oliver's goal would go to likely. My goal goes to Mirko. So, it's up to Marvin. Marvin, you choose. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. What if we do like give each other 30 seconds to explain why we should win? Yeah, we should do that. We should do that. Thank you. Oliver, you should vote. This is my idea. Lily goes first. Who's going first? Mirko. Lily goes first because it's my idea. You think it will be? Tag? Yeah. Okay. Wait, we're going to have to come back. So, Kyle, what did you think about our performances? You know, I loved all of you. I'm going to sit back. What do you say? I love all of you. I'm going to sit back. Real quick. Absolutely. Love you. Mirko, why did you say you should win? What do you say? I think you should win Mirko. No, I've got no more. Mirko has to say why. That's why I choose fast. Let Lily go first because it's my idea. Alright. So, basically, yeah, I don't personally think I should win. I just thought it was very fun to be on this. And I hope whoever wins, wins. Yeah. It's just very fun to be on this show. You're welcome. You're welcome. My ideas always work. But still. Yeah. I'm pretty ready to win. I feel like I should win because my speech was actually impactful. I didn't explain about serious topics like discrimination. And I realistically think if you don't vote for me to win, you don't really care much about discrimination, hate towards the different races. It's a bit weird. I also mentioned, you know, your favourite stuff, for example. I mentioned David Bowie. I also mentioned Marvin. Marvin reference. But Mirko has one problem. What's the problem? I vote for you if you say bread is better than food. And if you don't edit that out, then I won't be. Well, realistically, I did say that in the rap. Yeah, but you'd still need to say it if you won that vote. And realistically, you also have to make other people say it, too, because it is biased. Yeah, but bread is still better than food. If you say it, then I'll vote for you. But this does smell like bias to my head. Yeah, I don't really care. It sniffs like... What? ...bias. I'll vote for you, Mirko. Mirko, if you say that, bread is better than food. Alright, bread is better than food. Say it, Mirko. I did. Say it. Kyle, did you hear me say it? Yeah, say it on me. I can't hear anything. Bread is better than food. Alright, alright. Thank you, Mirko. Alright then. Kyle, who's your vote, too? Because you voted Mirko, I say let's vote likely. What? No, it's a tie again. No, no. I thought I just voted because I literally thought it was a tie. That's alright then. I need to leave it to Oliver, then. Oliver's last vote is a tie. Oliver's last. Oliver's last. Anyway, folks, my biggest recommendation to you all is that you watch and watch Oliver pick the job. I'm the winner. I'm the winner. I'm the... What? I think we're gonna have to get... Right then. Right, Oliver's voted. And since it's a tie, it has to actually work out. Yeah? People, first of all... Marvin, you're a cheat. Second of all... Oliver, Oliver. Second of all, myself. Okay, no, I'm just joking. I'm joking. I was just going to announce it. Okay, I'm joking, I'm joking. I say sorry. I apologise for your inconvenience. You apologise to me for cheating. Alright, I'm sorry for cheating. Yeah. And you do so. And you do so. Okay, shut up. Shut up. Wait, Oliver. Yeah. You know when Marvin was trying to kick you out? You know when I was defending you and you knew he was against you, right? No. I was helping you. Why? Why? I was helping you stay in the game. Why? It's not a lie. You can literally watch back. I was helping Oliver stay in the game. You're a liar. You guys were against me. I was helping Oliver stay in the game. I was telling Marvin when you guys left. Oh, Marvin is leaving. It's not even that deep. Remember when I said it's not that deep? Remember, you can find the messages. It's not that deep. I said that. I did say that. Yeah, but then if it hit one left to me. No, I didn't message it to you as well. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I was defending him. You know what, Mirko? Since you went to the whole hour, should we do it again? Do what again? Should we let Oliver come back? I don't mind. Oliver, do you want to come back? Yeah. See, Oliver. See, see, see, see. Wait, look. If I never said this, Oliver would have never came back. See, see, see, see, see. Alright then. You were playing Kingston before. You were saying Oliver. It's not that deep. No, no. Yeah. We have a three -way vote.

One of my best friends from Yale who I had a long conversation with on the phone literally yesterday, he went to the Westminster school. We were getting and I've actually spoken at the Westminster school. Really? In Atlanta. Yeah, okay, so you went to Westminster school boys. You got involved, not in sports, but in because you're kind of a tall thinner guy. You can evolve in theater and singing and piano all of that. So I was an art sky. And my best friend wanted to go to Yale. And so I went with him. Actually it was a little group of us that went up there. So I got involved with the singing group scene. And so Yale has this huge and formal a capella singing group scene and so I was first in the SOBs, the society of Orpheus and Bacchus. Right. And then the whip and poofs is a all male group or it used to be until a couple of years ago. Well,

"You talked earlier about, you know, David Bowie with the riff on panic in Detroit. I love the riff. And kickstart my heart. You know, just crunchy edgy guitar. I love the beginning of doctor feel good. That's Nikki Sixx, he's just he owns the beginning of that song. That base is just roaring. I only got to see those guys once and they were actually opening for Ozzy Osbourne. I saw them on the first reunion tour. And Fort Lauderdale. It's a pretty great show, man. It was a pretty good show. That was like, I think that was the early 2000s. Tommy Lee put on a show, he was hoisted to the top. He was swinging around the top of the arena, playing drums over here, playing drums over there. He dude was no joke. He could put on a show. Yeah. All right, buddy, that was a good show. A lot of Bowie, Bowie Bowie. I'm gonna go and you got some bed. And to go listen to Bowie. There you go. All right. By the way, by the way, you ever see you know the series flight of the conchords? So underrated. So fucking funny. Dude, the Bowie episode? You know what? You just, I'm gonna rewatch that series. That shit was so funny. If you don't, the humor is very you have to have a taste for that humor, very dry, witty, intelligent humor. But that shit, I'm a rhyme and narcissist. The Bowie episode is just the best man. Get an eyepatch man, get an eye patch. If you've never watched flight of the contours, I think it's on HBO Max now 'cause it was an HBO series. That shit is funny. Those guys are hilarious. And the talented. Do you like students in talent? Penguins. All right, Jackson. Bowie in space. Once again, buddy, thank you for giving me your time. I know you schedule is packed. And you find time each week to do this, Jack is a busy man, whereas me, well, I lived a life of leisure, and I, but I can wait for you, Jack. I can wait for you.

"I like heroes. That's great song. But even more so, one of the Bowie songs that I've always just loved love love is young Americans. There you go, buddy. Can't go back. You know, it's got a little bit of everything. I mean, a great song. With the piano kind of right into it, you know, it's got great swing to it. It's got a great sex. It's got great, you know, it's got great vocals. You know, you get a couple of cute little things in there. I heard the news today. Oh boy, you know. And we all know, we all know that lutha vandross was a backup singer on that album. He was. That's true. He was. Yes. He had some pretty good backup singers. There's some, I think there's some sort of documentary I think on that. That's part of a documentary of Bowie documentary. And they see him Luther in the female singers in the studio. It was weird seeing a young Luther Vandross. Yeah. Knowing that he was just gonna blow up. He was just waiting to blow up. But I'll tell you, one of the things that I love about the song young Americans is that kind of the toward the ending where he's just kind of like freestyling a little bit, right? And he's just kind of like singing over, you know, the background vocals and whatnot. He's just kind of, it almost seems like he's improvising. You ain't a pimp. You ain't a hustler, a pimp drives a caddy and a lady drives a Chrysler. There you go. All of that, all of that stuff I think is just fantastic. I just think that song has got great, great energy. Fantastic. Absolutely. And it's an up song. You know, it's just really uplifting and I've always loved that song. Huge big hit, big hit for him when that came out..

"He didn't really have any giant hits after that from 84. And you know what? The funny thing is is if you actually look at like in terms of like Grammy Awards and his, you know, him charting, you know, his song is getting on the charts. He did not have a ton that ended up on the charts. Like, if you look at the highest grossing, most popular, you know, David Bowie songs. His remake of dancing in the streets with Mick jag, which is a horrible. Horrible song. I like under pressure better than that one. Yeah. It's like number four in terms of the success that he had. You know, David Bowie was definitely he was an album oriented kind of guy. Yeah. Yeah. All right, so I said, what did I say, diamond dogs? What do you got? Did I pick so I have to go with space oddity. You know, they go wrong. Well, you know what? It was the first, right? So space oddity was my introduction to David Bowie. My parents used to play it. Right. You know, so it was one of those, you know, classic songs. Like, if you go back into the early 70s, you had a lot of singer songwriters out there that were actually writing songs that were stories. Yeah. You know, like Jim Croce was a story guy and I know one of your favorite favorite favorite people to Harry Chapin with cats in the cradle and that's like Harry cheap and I hate that song. Yeah. And I'm not saying that space oddity is on par with Jim Croce or Harry Chapin. But it had that kind of theme that was kind of like a story that was you could follow. And there was a lot of drama and there was a lot of mystery into it, especially for a little kid listening to it, you know, can you hear me major Tom? Like, you weren't really sure what happened to him. Not until scary monsters came out. But everyone ashes through ashes, right? Which is great, great song. Yeah, we know major Tom's junkie. That's when he finally came out and said it, but the thing about space oddity is this. It's very few songs very few performers can pull this off where they actually put you right in the moment of the song. You can visualize what's going on when that song is playing. It's no like Bruce Springsteen lyrics that none of them make any fucking sense on their own, but they sound good together. They started, he put you in there..

"You this in terms of great David Bowie songs. Would you include under pressure in there? No. Why? Fucking hate that song. Why do you hate that song? Don't think it's a good son. It's a great song. It's not. Yes, it is. It's David Bowie. It's queen. It's back and forth. I was never a huge Queen fan, by the way. It's got a great riff and a great baseline that was stole the baseline from vanilla ice by the way. Yeah, they stole it. How about how about vanilla ice, right? So. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Here we go. Under pressure. Dim limbed into the doom to his initial defense was, look, queen's version is doomed, and it endom. Dimmed him into the newly. He was like, my version is a doom. It's like if I had any. It's different. It's different. It's different. It's different. It's fuck you. Yeah, fuck you. You need a lot of money off that fuck you. You made a lot of money. He had to give a lot of that money to now that was on a queen's a Queen album, right? It was on it was on queen's greatest hits. I don't think it was on the other queen. It wasn't on a Bowie album. No, no. No, it was not. I'm surprised that you dislike it as much as you do. But you just said, again, I liked it. I liked it when it first came out. It was different. It was good. But then again, overplayed way overplayed than just beyond overplayed. Yeah. And you know what? We don't have time. We don't have time to dive into the details, but my understanding is it was not a very good working relationship. Those guys doing that. You know, there was a bit of a power struggle between Freddie Mercury and David Bowie in terms of the creative direction of the song. I don't think that either side thought it was a very good experience. Bowie had has a habit to do in that. He did that with Morrissey and I think I told you this story. Morrissey was on tour with him Morris. He was like 91, I think the Smiths had just broke up. He was at his gigantic point in his career. And he opened up for Bowie and it seemed like most of the crowd was there to see Morrissey. And Morrissey would do his final song and the place would go nuts and then there's a thing that Bowie would come out when it was his turn. So Bowie boat, I don't know almost halfway through the tour decides he doesn't like that that Mars is getting all these accolades from the fans. And he says, how about if we do this? And there's.

"Young Americans. That's it. And then it would be diamond dogs after young Americans, then diamond dogs. Yeah. So you being a vinyl collector, you know, speaking of diamond dogs, have you tried to find the original version anywhere? The original money, the original cover. So do you want to open? Do you want to tell our friends out there about the original cover? Yeah, if you see the cover of diamond dogs, it's David Bowie. It's a very artistic version of him. On the front, and he's kind of on his elbows and he's got the red hip pulled back and you see his body. He's kind of laying down from left from right to left, his head, then you go to his body. And when you open the gate fold, it's transitions into a dog's body like a Greyhound type body. While the original cover had the dog's genitals showing and back then the 70s, although you could have Led Zeppelin with little children with no shirts on houses of the holy, that gets that was okay, but a dog's genitals people hit the roof, so they pulled it and put out the one that most everybody has, where it's just there's nothing there. Yeah, it's a highly collectible, very, very hard to find. I think it's worth a couple of grand. That's where I tell people. They all and I've said this before, you've heard me say this. Nobody's getting rich off their vinyl collection. They're not like baseball cards. People hang on to them, and they won't play them, they won't even look at them, but they're like, I have vinyl records. They're not going to make you any money. You see these going to these antique stores, and there's I'll say a houses of the holy Led Zeppelin and they want 60 bucks for it and the thing is in mediocre condition. Because they think it's Led Zeppelin finals hot now..

"Yeah. Who doesn't like that song? That's what I would like to know. I bet you that there's a lot of our listeners that don't even know that song. Well, I think isn't that in Guardians of the Galaxy? I think it is. Yeah. It's a great soundtrack, by the way. That has a fantastic, the first album. They tried to duplicate it with the second. Now, the first soundtrack is good. Anyways, moving on. What do you got? So my next pick may be somewhat controversial. But I'm gonna say it anyway because it is a Bowie song technically, is all the young dudes. Okay, I was just listening to that earlier, his version. That is one of those songs. That's like all along the watchtower. Jimi Hendrix does it ten times better than Bob Dylan. Mata who does all the young dudes ten times a hundred times better than Bowie does. I would agree with that. Yeah, I was gonna say you're just looking for a fight and if you're disappointed because they cut their teeth on that song. I can't, you know, but there's a couple of live versions of Bowie doing all the young dudes which had great. Right. But from a studio in production standpoint, can you, is that it? That the train? Dead air. Waiting for a train. Yeah, maybe you can't hear the windows closed. Yeah, 'cause it's winter time. It's got the IT guys joined us tonight. He's been stopped before you decide to log off because he's random. Leave my outro, will you? You've been letting me down. He doesn't even know who David Bowie is. Yeah, yeah. His thing is new needs to be tracks released after 2010. Okay. Anyways, so all the young dudes, right? Yeah. I guess to a certain extent, I was trying to avoid some.

"Well, you know, I guess the one thing that I would like to know about Amazon is, you know, do they have a different kind of like file format? Is the sound quality better than it is on Spotify? I don't really notice that. Yeah, I don't really notice. It's just the platform is like if I type in David Bowie, gives me albums, songs, videos. It gives you a whole list of different things that you might want to look for. And you hit songs that says you want to laugh for you up like 6 songs that says more. You hit the more. And it just drops them. Like everything. But David live at the tower is not on Amazon music, which is I found interesting. It's kind of weird. I wonder why? Yeah, I don't know. I have no idea. But it makes no sense to me. No sense whatsoever. So my number three is it's a pretty well known song. Should be played more on the radio, but isn't. From 1973, the Aladdin sane album probably I might arguably say this might be one of the best intro songs he ever had. Panic in Detroit. The intro on that is instant, right? That guitar riff. It just gets you right away. It's as soon as you hear that, boom. And it doesn't stop from there. I mean, the opening line, looking like he's seg avaro, driving in a diesel van. I love that. I don't know why I love that line. I love that. He was such a creative writer and, you know, he really pushed the boundaries and he always pushed the boundaries. It was always looking for something different, not one to have a really restaurant as laurels. Yeah. And like a lot of like a lot of bands. He went through that, you know, that phase where I think it was back in 75 that he was like, that's it. He was like, you know, I'm tired of being a human jukebox. He was like, I'm quitting. I'm quitting the music business. Yeah. So he quit. He quit touring, you quit recording, and he quit for 5 months. Can't stay out of the spotlight. 5 months. He was a dominant figure in the 70s. He was a dominant figure in the early 80s. I mean, you look though, you know, the let's dance album was was huge. Oh. Yeah. You know, I mean, you know, you think about it. I mean, David Bowie after being around all throughout the 70s, was still filling stadiums. And not only did he fill stadiums in 83 on the serious moonlight to it, but then he did the glass spider tour and 84 85 and then a little bit later probably closer to 87 88 somewhere in there. He did that kind of like greatest hits to her. We was retiring his songs and he was never going to play them again. Yeah. He did a remake of fame. He did a remake of fame. Kind of a funky version. Yeah, it's actually wasn't bad. It's not bad. No, it wasn't bad. Fame 90? Fame 90, yeah. Yeah. The video with the.

"But I loved it. I played now. Remember, I had said, I totally just a long time ago. I was listening to David Bowie and I was ten years old, 11 years old. And David live at the tower is one of my favorite albums of all time. And the song is sweet thing. Sweet thing and I prefer the live version on David live at the tower. Although the diamond dogs version is also done very well. So live at the towers is an interesting album because you're catching him in the transition from Ziggy stardust and Aladdin saying in his glam rock era. To young Americans, diamond dogs, and then young Americans. So the first half of the tour was more diamond dogs, type, and then while he was doing that, he recorded that album live in Philadelphia, but he was also recording a bunch of the tracks from young Americans. So the second half of that tour, and I think it was probably in 75. They renamed it the soul tour. So that was like you saw the transition happening. Right in front of you live. And if you ever get a chance to listen to it, it's called sweet thing. It's off the diamond dogs album, or I still I still love every song on that album. Yeah, it's got a lot of mixes in it. It's got a little bit of diamond dogs, little bit of young Americans, little bit of Aladdin sane, little bit of Ziggy, so that was kind of his last, really cleaned up the Ziggy status glam rock part of his career. You know, this may be an area where you and I disagree a little bit. And I think that that David live is a good document of like where he was. But I don't think that in his career that they ever captured David Bowie on an album where he had he should have had a monster monster great live album. And I don't think he ever did. I think David live is fine. But, you know, to your point, I don't think that the production is that great. I said, it's not the best quality sound. It's kind of wrong. I just said that you said that. You said you would tend to disagree with me on some. I tend to disagree with you. Is I'm not sure that that David Bowie throughout his career even after that they actually put out a really great live album. I don't think so, not that I'm aware of, yeah..

"It was quite a weird. Yeah. It was great. They were unbelievable in their goofy costumes up there. Oh, that was quite a spectacle. Yes, we'll get to that. We'll get to that. So we're gonna do the top ten, and I'm gonna start. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean for the people that are listening. That these are his best songs. We're not saying top ten best Bowie songs. This is my top ten list and Jack has his top ten list. So they're not gonna be maybe what you think. So I'm gonna start off with and again, these aren't in any particular order. This is just how I have them because it's impossible to put them in any order. That I can't do from one to ten. But this one is the second cut off of my favorite David Bowie album. And I think a very underrated David Bowie album that people should go out and listen to again and you'll be amazed at how good it really is from 1975, young Americans, the album, but the song is called win. It's the second song on the album. And it is, I mean, that is just such a soul. Soulful album. That was just, and that song just breathes it. It just breathes soul. I love that song. It's a great song. It is. It's a great song. And young American is his homage, or homage to, you know, American soul and, you know, the Philly sound and Motown and all of that. And when is is a beautiful great kind of funky soul beautiful song. Yeah, a lot of times on that album. Totally ripped off by Beck. I wouldn't know because I didn't listen to back. So that has a it wasn't a big hit for him, but he's got a song called Deborah. Okay. That is a great song, but you listen to it and you like, oh my God, this is plagiarism at its best. Yeah, the young American album, some people call it plastic soul, some called the blue eyed soul. But to go from.
Remembering Bowie, Mercury, and Pressure
"You want to feel old guys, January 10th. That was the 5th anniversary of David Bowie's death. He would have been 75 right now. I don't know why his age makes a big difference. I mean, you know, Paul McCartney is still running strong. He is who he is and he's fine, but it's just, you know, you don't think a guy's like Bowie being 75, and also the great patron poll, lenahan reminded me that today, Freddie Mercury died, well, not today, but Freddie Mercury died 30 years ago. In November, 30 years ago, I don't know if you care for those two artists, those two rockstars, but if you don't, there's something wrong with you, but go up on YouTube and watch the version of the two of them singing the song pressure. Now they never sang it together. There's YouTube versions that look like they're together, but they're analytic together. And they never sign up together on stage. They corroded in one night, but never performed it together. That is shot in 1985 at some I think it was for me. One big ass concert, but they didn't do it. I bet they wish they had. But those lyrics, what are we 40 years removed from those guys writing that song? Those lyrics, pressure pushing down on me, pushing down on you, no man asked for. Under pressure that burns a building down, splits a family into puts people on the streets,

"Eventually started pulling songs out of my stocks and then would put them on. Then we'd play and play and play sub. What do you like. And what. I i like this well. Did you ever hear this guy. You know and that that that kind of thing. And i was interested in all these blues guys. There were coming here from england john mail and a blues breakers and dan's like that that i never heard of and i couldn't really didn't that time we didn't realize that american blues country blues from the south had migra. What was it was almost like they were. It was like contraband music. Anyone i mean these guys. They brought him over on if they ever came to new york they buy stuff and they take it back and people covering this music and it was the the germ that led to the rolling stones. Now my was about say exactly where the germ came from the these guys. But in the fifties there word bands of english dies who grew up listening to the blues. Mayo was one of the blue with the blues. Breakers were one of the early bands. And so i was talking to him about that. I know and he was just listening to all this american music which wasn't available or broadly in england that time so that that was the thing and that was the connection we had was. He liked the fact that i knew about artists. Never heard of. And of course he was david bowie. Even then he didn't he wasn't like others. He was a little bit on a star he was the art was. There was something special about down definitely and it went on from there and so that was that was that was the beginning of a a what you might call relationship it was. I was a distant rodney buddy buddy but you know he would after albums he would call me and you know so one night i I'm on honed. Phone rings and he says hi. It's david from england. So i said hey. You know of course organized voice immediately. So we're talking. And he was he was calling about hunky dory. Just come out okay. No it might have been i he. He wasn't calling me exclusively like his buddy in america. I'm sure the record company put him up to making calls to g. People around you know. And i was just one of them but but we did have a connection from from ending everything at my house and so we start talking. We're talking about and he's asking me did you. Listen to shore and you like it. Yeh we talked about tracks stuff like that. And the funny thing in that conversation and this will send your woke audience in the apoplexy. No that was fifty years ago for crying out. I like as an interviewer when i did interviews. I would like to ask questions that nobody would want to ask because they might be dangerous. You know and i just get a rise out of particularly out of stars. It's fun to do and but in a nice it's not more one anyways just for the fun of it. Yeah i got that if you know the cover of the honky. Dory album is posed very in a sort of a might might as well been in dry. I mean yeah just like a woman. So i said david some friends of mine are asking. Are you a man or a woman which of course you couldn't ask today but but it was fire was for the fun of it and his response was incredible without missing a beat. He came back and he said. Just tell them omega wiped away. That's the reason i remember. The story is because his response was just tell them on the english and we roared about the the response to the whole idea. That was another great moment with him as well known for his quick clips he was fast he was he was very good. That was a great one. I mean he didn't miss a beat. it wasn't like he thought it was bang right back. Just those great then another and then later this dob so that was. I don't know early seventies by that time. And then he did. The spiders spiders from mars tour came through the funny thing for me. Driving up to the it was he had not yet gone into the hockey arenas and stuff like that. This was still the presidium archer as a theater. Philadelphia called the tower theater and the and the audience was the ticket holders. Roll lined up down. The street. As i drove up at that time was at that time already. Oh yo he was bowie and then yeah. I know but he. He didn't have a number one american single. So like seventy five well not a number one but major time is played constantly and all the radio play right and then spiders from mars album was hit and and and his look and the shades of red hair and then the red air and the crew cut you know the mola that he had for the during a period of time and that was the funny thing. The funny thing was you drove up and in the line screwed populated through the line where people that had his haircut. No way you red hair does crew cut on the top. But a bright red law long in the back but crewcut on the top and they had his haircut and the funny part. Was that when you got in and you saw on stage wearing that anymore. They were like two steps behind him if he if he was wearing in december in june. When you saw them out of there like that now he was always just he was moving on. He's always moving on. And this is audience following behind and that was like the perfect example of the audience being who steps behind him he was. He was just amazing and that way. So i i saw. I was asked to come backstage after the show by his people. Because i was the guy in philadelphia they had a connection with so So my wife and i went back stage. And we enter his backstage area and he's in his jock strap a and and to two giant clothing racks. Okay one covering one wall one covering the other wall and there's a woman.

"I love the track. Jack i have a weakness for your music. He know that. Thank you and welcome next. We're gonna be talking about diamond dogs. I thought it'd be something great to bring up at this time Because diamond dogs. I was at album. That was influenced by george. Orwell's too soapy a novel. Nineteen eighty four with bowie. Playing the urban chaos of modern cities and the album was credited with anticipating the wave of the punk movement The political rock. The iron age missed six foot at both u. cabin and sasha released with pride before the paul i see some parallels. What are your thoughts on that. Yeah that's does a that's a cruel segue point shape the the irony mystic song thought police was similarly i. I always Say that it. It has an association to the orwellian Nineteen eighty-four Book which. I read twice but really it had more of an association to what was becoming an escalating threat in our times. Which is surveillance surveillance society with all. Its with all its bells and whistles and bassetti so the to to try to create a link between orange. Mrs thought police directly to bowie's diamond dogs would be a bit of a stretch for me but as far as anything that mystics mystics. Have put out I i definitely see the parallel that you're going for their shape because topically topic we. They're they're very much unseen page. That's what i thought. The album was also credited with anticipating the start of the wave of the punk movement diamond. Diamond dogs yeah. Of course you know. I had actually i. I have actually never read a word on that shapes that you're one up on me for sure it doesn't surprise me doesn't surprise me at all if you listen to A great deal of the spoken distortion verbiage. Without even getting into the song diamond dogs hit. It has very very punky flavour to so now without any real foreknowledge. You could be banging on without but i. i haven't read that any person. yes thank you. i am. A research cited retha would year to year. Two diamond was seventy four. Seventy four so definitely predated that later predated pistols ramones. Right here my way at my timing off now ramones nine hundred seventy four queens and sex's about nineteen seventy five so it's definitely had an influence but was upwards music or wasn't art. It was his music that was credited thematically diamond between the novel nineteen eighty four by george orwell and bowie's own glam tin vision of the post apocalyptic world bowie wanted to make a theatrical production of our roles book. wasn't granted it by the author sustained. Sage denied the race. So songs wound up on the second half diamond dogs. I remember. I remember people saying they referred to as the grand eater the godfather of the grandfather of punk on. I guess you know the the art like just the whole lake. You know. i don't have to answer to you. Justify myself. And i can be as crazy as i want. You know which we considering like what else was going on. At the time. I don't even know nineteen seventy four and i'm thinking lakes fans are bob seger or synchrotron third seals and crofts for all those band. Although they're really great they're novo eat right. Wake just kind of perhaps add to your point. Jack is the if you consider an album like lodger particularly with with every single song is pretty much very very very different than the song that follows it on the song. The proceeds it but also to It's deliberately terse and course and offbeat and you'd almost think the musicians i mean. I know for a fact that one of the songs off that album boys keep swinging of bowie. Had everybody play everybody else. And that's what swapped instruments. I and it was to keep that raw or was to create that that raw feelings throughout the album. I mean that was only one but the the raw and outside and you know Screaming in the mike phone or not or go over here. Or don't do that or do that. Or you know and this kind of always keeping you off center in that seem. That seem to be the thing that i am i. I could see that as being inspirational if only for the punk movement if only us symbolically because the or inspirationally symbolically which is well you know. Don't don't worry about you. Know hitting those us seventy thousand note lakes in you know four point. Five bars just crushes just crush it. Turn up turn up too loud you know and and so you can kinda you know you can kind of see that you know a perhaps. Perhaps i'm speculating event. But perhaps that was inspiration to the punk movement as well not only just the artistic imaging the sasha was talking about with diamond dogs and i guess to a lesser extent..

County sheriff's office deputies so asking for it on facebook. I'm assuming he's like come get me. I don't even think it's that out loud. Yeah the man called the sheriff's office at about nine thirty. Pm to ask why deputies haddon arrested him yet. Said undersheriff quinton reynolds. He said deputies had raided his house wednesday and he had been waiting all day on thursday for them to return to arrest him when asked what he should be arrested for. He said he should be arrested for meth. Use dance so this is a guy who calls up the station with no context at all and says you guys come from your what right figure it out. Members of dumb people town will have already heard john talk about Self inflicted being your own worse enemy. That's what this guy is. Or he's finally getting the help he needs right. That would be connerly a cry for help. Literally me i deserve to be. Yeah reynolds said that deputies in fact this is under sheriff. Said that deputies had in fact not rated the man's house and we're not planning on arresting him for a crime while speaking with a dispatcher. Demand said also said that ten young guys were following him. So he's full into the paranoia. Also i think he just has a messy house and he didn't. I don't even know if he did. What if he used to be on a football team mini. Quit and the other eleven. It's us on eleven man team and the other ten guys were mad at him. Sure and they want on the team. Ten young guys are madam and he figured it would be easier to get arrested to just get arrested for possession. Actually get go back easier to do math. You've never done methodist entire life. i love the. We're building this narrative about never done. It'd be easier than to go back and play football with these guys. Yes and it's really born out of the fact that he thought he was going to let them down. Man left his house in a white. Gmc truck and drove south on highway. Fourteen sixteen deputy past him about a mile south of buckskin coal mine. Put that on the walking tour when the deputy past him the man turned into a power unit substation which led the deputy to turn around and initiate a traffic stop. The man told the deputy he'd used method day a half before and was still high. Then it says he performed poorly on sobriety tests. Nice way of saying failed and was arrested for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. So he finally see yeah actually her right when people say he has world class speed. What what about the guy who comes in last in the in the olympic one hundred meter hurdles. I mean so far back that like you or i could probably come close. Even though we couldn't put like that guy has world class speed. Yeah it's just not the best but he's a pass of the world class well wouldn't you say if you qualify for the olympics that is the world class spiel thirty. Whatever the qualifying. Yes so this guy wore less idiot. I'm hung up on the semantics performed poorly. i i feel like that isn't a straight fail. I feel like he kind of like kind of answered the question and done some of the reading line straight jacket. Line can use his feet. So that's not a full hour fall over poorly.

Why We Built a Virtual Office and How You Can Too)
"Running remote team is a lot of fun. You get to hire people from all around the world and it really works for a lot of businesses. But it's not without its challenges. One of those challenges is that it's not always simple and easy to communicate freely with your colleagues if we were all together in a room or in a shared offices easy for a walk up to somebody at their desk and ask them a quick question. This something that comes natural to us as human beings but working remotely does it naturally. Come to us to be like. Hey i'm gonna jump on shah and asked this question. It's a learned behavior. And we've been doing this for over seven years running this remote team and we wanted to be easier on our team to communicate with each other help. Each other out actually started with our customer support team at webinar ninja. We noticed that sometimes our support agents would struggle with maybe new questions. They were getting from customers new scenarios or situations that they never came across. It would put the customer service agent or ninjas as we call them customer service inches in a strange situation because it wasn't super convenient or instinctual to just jump on a chat and chat with their colleagues. Ask them a question. Way for apply while the customers waiting. This could be a live chat with a customer so we decided to pilot a program called the virtual office. What this basically means is that. We're all together on camera and mike in a virtual room. There's a lot of complicated tools to do this. bowie literally just used google. Hangouts were like. Hey what's the simplest easiest way to validate this idea of without having to sign a for anything. Let's just use google hangouts but before we rolled it out to the customer service team. We wanted to test it out as the managerial team. So myself. my co-founder nicole. Our head of customer service because of service manager. Cj as well as our senior lead agent anna joined this virtual office and we worked together co worked together on this virtual call that basically went on for as long as we're working for about a week we wanted to see how would feel.

How COVID-19 has forced cancer patients and medics to juggle deadly trade-off
"Covid nineteen has affected cancer care in all countries rich and poor. Say what should the advice be to cancer patients who still need diagnosing treatment and potentially a coronavirus vaccine to to get some answers and to highlight how health authorities have been ensuring continuity of care. I've been speaking to dr andre bowie from the world health organizations department of noncommunicable diseases in geneva the impact of covid on cancer care profound because it has impacted all dimensions of cancer control from diagnosis to survivorship care and in that regard it has been a high impact and unfortunately very challenging time for the most vulnerable cancer patient seven this is worldwide as it in rich and poor countries. This impact in both high income countries and in some countries is that the case that health authorities have scaled back their cancer care after reports that covid nineteen outcomes are significantly worse among patients with cancer. Most governments are avoiding this concept of. Let's reduce cancer care because we know cancer is a time sensitive disease if we in fact delay cancer care either because of a government order or because of patient choice or because of the situation in team the consequences can be detrimental and for this reason. We've seen governments spun favorably to the extent that they are encouraging cancer patients to pursue care right. So let's put ourselves in a patient shoes a cancer patients shoes so they should carry on going to the hospital even though they might have heard somewhere that if they catch kobe they have a greater chance of being at risk. Is that right. That is the first starting point. As you rightly point out is the understanding bed. Some cancer patients are at higher risk for covid related disability or death if they can track the virus but because it has to do with immunosuppression the exact mechanism for which the viruses causing this increased risk of death for the cancer population. We are still trying to understand from disease perspective but one of the primary drivers is weakened immune system and the likelihood that the virus will take a greater hold spread more rapidly within the body and by extend to cause greater damage. That is the hypothesis but we are also trying to understand which cancer patients are at greatest risk is not all cancer. Patients are experiencing you potential harm of covid and cancer to the same extent. For example you've noted at some cancer patients that have what we call blood cancers or human to logic cancers are those that are experiencing grizz as compared to solid or the oregon based cancers like breast colorectal that may be lower risk but the exact likelihood that each cancer type incurs greater risk is something that again. We don't have a clear understanding because the data are still not well available for us to understand who is at greatest risk. The general message though is we know as a general group that cancer patients are experiencing greater disability and death from covid and because of this there is a tradeoff at many cancer. Patients are making sometimes in isolation but importantly in discussion with their healthcare provider. Understand what is it the right course of action for treatment.
The Covid-19 Epidemic Has Had A Profound Impact On Cancer Treatment

A Big Dose Of Perspective With Jack Kornfield
"Jack. Great to see you and thank you for coming Great pleasure thank you. Dan also for having me. It's time when we. I think we need to all come together and use our best wisdom and understanding of how to navigate. I completely agree and so let me. Just start with your mind. What are you doing to stay even in your own mind. Of course i meditate some but more importantly arrested in place that has a lot of spaciousness in it and a kind of trust. I'm old enough at age. Seventy five to have seen revolutions. Common go and difficulties arise in pass. Have and i also see that. There's i guess it was martin. Luther king talked about the moral arc of the universe being long but advance toward justice. I see that there's ways that systems also regulate themselves so whether it's the pandemic that we are in the throes of that is really causing enormous amount of suffering and loss whether it's the political disruptions in the capital and otherwise were just the calls for racial and economic justice that we needed for so long. I feel we're in a evolutionary process with its fits and starts. And i think about people like one gary mata who won the nobel prize for the greenbelt in east africa. She started by planning one to ten. Twenty fifty trees got other people to do. It eventually was thrown in prison on. I think that's a requirement for nobel peace laureates mostly And ended up planning fifty one million trees in changing a lot of the face to be africa or or or ellen sirleaf in manga bowie also nobel prize winners who said their country. Liberia used to be known for its child. Soldiers in had these terrible civil wars and now it's known for its women leaders and so there is some way in which just as the green sprouts come up through the cement in the sidewalk. There's something about life in. it's also the human heart that wants to renew itself. And so i rest back in kind and loving awareness to say yes. Let me turn my gaze away from the from the needs suffering the things to respond but also to hold it in a much bigger context justice. I agree that universe in the world is breathing. And that's how i keep my mind on a good day not the mean. There are bad days a bad moments but mostly my heart is pretty peaceful but you know there are things. I get a call from my daughter. Dad you know. This terrible thing is happening. At the nonprofit she runs for getting asylum for all people whose lives are endangered. What do i do our calls from dear friends. Oh my family has covid. So i'm deeply touched by these things and responding. Sometimes they really affect me. And i can feel the pain of it. You know or give worried but with all of that. There's a rounded a field of loving awareness of spaciousness entrust. That gives a much bigger picture and there. I'm just going on back away trying to answer your question and also spread out a little bit. When i was a monk training in the forest monasteries in southeast asia as a buddhist monk the main forest temple i lived was in a province adjoining. Both laos in cambodia was during the war in vietnam and laos cambodia. So we would see fighter jets going overhead and bombers and you know in some of the branch monasteries you could even see flashes from the from the bombs and people would come visit us. I had friends who were working in. Vietnam laos people that i knew as i had been working on medical teams in that ray calm river valley saying what are you doing sitting on your you know. There's a war to stop. There's things we need to do and my teacher would say. This is the place where we stop the war.
Interview With Dan Westergren
"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.
Enby People Don't Owe You Androgyny
"What we're talking about today. Is this idea of and rajini and that Tran or that trans nonbinary folk. But specifically non binary folk half to feel the pressure to conform to androgen e Now we're gonna be talking a little bit about that. But how do we define androgen. I'm sure that we can find it in a dictionary but like what does androgen e what is the definition of androgen e that we can work with that. The audience can sort of understand a little bit easier. I always think of like the the way androgen. He is generally portrayed in media where it's like a. It's generally like i think of you know like bowie or someone like that. That's you know very like and it's usually usually are either an Assigned male person or an aside female person with a smaller chest. It's usually about being very small and kind of like lake Ethereal looking. I guess thing and it's a it's more about like not having any defining gender caracteristics in your appearance than like actually being any any you know. Form of non binary Me like a good example. That i like to Exactly what kind of looting to somebody. Purely neutral in their appearance right. So oftentimes that means that they're lending or attributes of the two sides of the binary. Right so somebody be in a suit wearing make right you know for the rest of piety. That's a combination of two sides of one coin that everybody else kind of sees whereas you know internally especially for folks who are non binary sometimes. It's it's not about the appearance. It's about how you feel or how you act so i know like for me I enjoy wearing a tux in getting dressed up. But i also really enjoy playing on my skintight floral chance or you know or I do do make up every now. And then and sundays depending on how the winds blowing. I really enjoy that or sometimes. I don't care you know so. I think that there needs to be understanding for the audience that what the world thinks is android genie versus what i think nonbinary people think is android need. There's a slight deviation there In that the we don't have to work so hard to show the world androgynous in the way that you expected right like i said i don't know if that helps the audience understand. What makes it even more vague. But i think that's kind of yeah. It's that like that like It expects you have aspects of both ends of the gender spectrum as opposed to like it they want you to be like right in the middle of it as opposed to like like ashley was saying. It's a whole a whole bag. And i think that was for me. roadblock came to was that i am very comfortable being sam presenting like You know i. I like where closed from the men's section occasionally and just kind of grungy but like overall i'm presenting which really was Like even even in the queer community. I felt like i. You know i like appeared as a woman and i wasn't sure how to make that distinction and that was it ended up being. I just talk about and say it all the time which works. But yeah i felt like because i wasn't interested in appearing like a man and especially because i i wasn't you know necessarily thinking about any actual medical transitioning that i was excluded from that world The as i was like well. If i'm comfortable appearing like this then. I can't actually mean it. I was gonna offer one other examples. So i mean some of the examples. We've talked about about what the world sees androgen. He said like bowie stuff of that. Where it's like taking a little bit from both sides Another really good example. I mean If anybody's watched the show sheron a huge fan of sheron. I think the queer community inherently lows. She raw for reasons. Hail yeah Double trouble in a perfectly neutral character and it was it wasn't even it wasn't ever questioned or considered you know what side right of the historical binary that you know that person would all on and the characters only ever used day to address double trouble so you know dole troubles like a perfect example of somebody. That's perfectly on that neutral line that doesn't waiver to either side. And even that's a form of androgen that i think is a high expectation but it's another good example of just perfectly right there in the middle and so i figured i'd offer that or that helps the audience
Sober Holiday Survival
"Welcome to recovery. Happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking. I'm your host tricia and in my stocking this year. I hope santa brings me the limited edition. David bowie barbie doll that sold out last year. Despite my attempts to tell santa to preorder it from two different game stop locations just in case. Thank you for joining me well. Happy december or folks. We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. And i believe you can absolutely do this without drinking last week. We talked about tips for staying alcohol-free this holiday season and today i'm going to complete the rest of that list so go back and listen to last week's episode if you haven't already come back and join me when you're done. Are you back okay. today. I'm going to start off with this alcohol-free tip focus on the event you're celebrating. Yup parties are usually meant to celebrate a thing. You know an event a person whatever beyond our own addiction or gray area drinking problem whatever you wanna call it. It's also are usually our garbage culture that turns drinking into the focus of an event so for a holiday party. Think about what you're celebrating. That's jesus or hanukkah or just getting together with your family. Mix celebrating that thing your goal. Maybe you've got a relative in town who you normally don't get to see. Take some time to celebrate that you know catch up with them. Maybe it's getting to hold a new baby or play with your nieces and nephews. You can use these opportunities without alcohol to really be present and those moments and appreciate everything that's memorable and real about them. I always say the same thing about birthdays and weddings. The event is to celebrate a person doing something really special so make them what. You're celebrating because it's not all about us and getting drunk last week. I asked everyone to write a list of things. We like about the holidays and use that list as a resource and celebrate those things so find things to get excited about. It can be whatever you want. Bring ingredients to make a really cool any drink with like twelve different components get dressed up where high heels that you don't have to worry about falling off of bring a game like look for things to make a party fund because parties are supposed to be just that fun a great way to stay busy and distract yourself if you need. It is to help the hostess or the host or the person who's having the party go cleanup napkins offer to wash plates offer to help i guarantee you that. If you're listening to this podcast then you have absolutely been a party hosts worst nightmare at point in your life so use this as an opportunity to give back and level out your car a little bit. Here's a simple one. do not i repeat. Do not offer to be the designated driver. Especially if it's a party that might go late if you're feeling freaked out and you need to bail. Then you don't need a reason to stay put. You should always have an exit plan. You know and being someone's dd cancels that out entirely the couple of times that i've offered to do this. I ended up staying at a party way too late when i really just needed to go home. It's twenty twenty. We have uber and left for a reason so let people use it. You know a big part of getting through the holidays without alcohol is learning how to deal with our most triggering loved ones and having the tools not to drink over it boundaries are really big deal boundaries are a big deal for example if you know that someone at the gathering relentlessly pushes shots on you. Then no you're boundary ahead of time if that person offers me a shot. I'm going to say xyz if they keep offering me shots. I'm going to make my exit. You know you create a boundary beforehand. And if someone crosses the line you already know what to do to stay healthy and sober. You know it's just about having a plan had time. Another example is if you have a typical pattern. That's a reason behind your drinking like if communicating with your parents tends to be tents and. Let's say they're always saying something passive aggressive and you've never spoken up about it but instead you've always pushed it down and drink over it. Well this is the time to find a boundary not saying that you need to confront them during christmas and try to resolve like twenty five years of old trauma but you can say something like i need to go get some fresh air. I'm gonna go for a quick walk around the block. That's a boundary. You know when you decided not to engage in an activity that triggers you to drink or maybe it's one of those all day christmas parties that starts at eleven. Am and goes until midnight where everyone's been drinking for like thirteen straight hours. Maybe you've always stuck around because you thought that that was expected of you and you never had the words to speak up this year. Consider telling everyone beforehand that you've made plans for the second half of the day and you have to leave at three o'clock maybe your pet sitting any need to go home and feed the dog. It's up process of planning ahead and saying if this thing happens then i will choose to do this thing because it will keep me from drinking.
The Future of Healthcare with Teladoc Health Chief Medical Officers
"Well the country in the world's talking about it. I want to start with one year colleagues Shop and i want you to listen to so much. Answer this question to Jennifer schneider She's quoted as saying the following things. Virtual healthcare is growing. It's getting to the point now. You're not going to hate it. What does it mean to you when you hear. A clinician say to a group of patients were consumer class. That you're not gonna hate this anymore. What comes to mind. And how does this relationship solve that problem of disliking the care you were getting going to the big parking lot paying the seven dollars and a park having to walk through the labyrinth dodging david bowie on the way to your clinic and finally getting there to see who you needed to see what comes to mind there when you hear jennifer say that it. It's a great summation of. What would i have felt that has been broken. Healthcare for past fifteen years. As i think we also s consumers in this marketplace obscene seen how content has been reorganized by the internet how communities have been reorganize how entertainment commerce more recently even banking. When was the last time that you actually stepped foot in a bank. And so this this notion of you're gonna drive twenty to thirty minutes to this obstacle or building and then ended up waiting an hour at least I think comes an hours like a a gift to see physician. Pretend to fifteen minutes us. We'll give you a whole bunch of information that you're not gonna process And send you on your way driving back down twenty or thirty minutes in some cases i haven't come back again. You know in two or three days or a week is you've got to get lab tests. Imaging tasks don seem so You know sort of disconnected from how we live our lives today in terms of the immediacy of the things that were able to get it all at our fingertips and so I think this is what jennifer was talking about it. I think you alluded to just so nicely is the experience of inter connectivity through now wearable sensors software that personalizes methodist to you And always on connectivity Through the cloud Starting to make its way into healthcare and covid nineteen is only accelerated people's view in notion of what's possible in healthcare that today was just a method or a vision it is absolutely accelerating ed From everyone we've been speaking to And of course you are walking this walk on the acceleration happening before we're ready So it's really an exciting time. It also can be a harrowing right if you're not prepared for loot when you hear jennifer say consumers and patients aren't gonna hate healthcare anymore because they're they're access the can get what what comes to mind view especially in terms of telecom. Bunga sure so. I think that people often talk about. How virtual care makes access so much easier and they often frame this in terms of a conversation around what you might consider medical convenience And i'd like to just draw out the issue that it's not just a question of convenience. It's really around the quality of care so on telemedicine side we see many individuals who seek care and they end up having pretty serious medical problems like a recent case where the individual Actually had some big chest discomfort in our little shortness of breath and ended up having multiple blood clots in his lungs and he would have just probably waited it out at home with really a life threatening medical condition and on the longo side. You're really talking about individuals who for the first time in their lives are taking care of these problems around blood. Sugar control blood pressure control. So they're really getting the care that they need because we've made it easier for them and have lowered a number of these barriers which are traditionally put the place and may care most difficult and as you might imagine during the time of covid. All of these issues have been highlighted. So if you are at home trying to do your telecommuting also trying to teach your kids at the same time who might be doing their own remote learning. It may not be the easiest thing for you to decide that you need to take you know a bus to a train to train to bus in order to get to a medical appointment to have somebody review your blood sugars with you so to make that care possible particularly in this time just makes all the sense in the world.
