"I think. Britain marie dot com for example. I think went to the american association of naturopathic positions and and there was even a a pretty janke looking website. Up at one of these domains. That didn't have anything false about me. But it definitely created the impression that i was a proponent of naturopathic medicine so in my opinion it was all quite this leading and and end designed to steer people away from my website. There was even google ads being ran on my name. And so. I am had reason to believe that there was a a naturopathic arizona who seemed to be behind the purchasing of these domains and perhaps even that website itself and so i started writing about this naturopathy. Her name is colleen cooper and she treats cancer in her naturopathic practice using intravenous baking soda for example and super high doses of vitamin c and really strict diets and her website. Really in her. I had never heard of her before this. I have to say. And i found her to be very striking because she reported like really amazing remission rates like remission rates. That are so high that i thought gosh if this is true. This is pretty extraordinary. And this data should be explored. So i just started to explore the data that she uploaded to her website herself. She has several research studies in in my opinion dubious medical journals. You know that. I think are designed to promote alternative therapies. And there was there's a whole host of other things like she had a naturopathic charity or she does have an after pathak charity in that charity seemed to be associated with our clinic and the two websites would cross linked to each other so there was just like a lot happening there and i found this to be fascinating and i started writing about it and she was very upset that i started writing about her. And these remarkable cancer statistics that she was reporting and in my writing. I suggested that she might be the owner of these domain names and that she might be responsible for putting up this information and that she also might be doing science wrong that these figures Might not be accurate. And in fact if you look at the data a different way Which was done by an expert in looking at cancer data. The numbers actually look really bad for her. And actually it looks like if you choose alternative therapies. You have a higher risk of dying from camps from cancer. So i i wrote about all this and it pissed her off and she sent me a cease and desist to take down the post which i didn't do and then she responded shortly thereafter with a lawsuit that was based in germany and i think she chose germany because the law is more favorable for her In germany compared to the united states. So i think it's harder to bring a defamation suit in the us and in the us one might have the opportunity to also file a motion in returned as like an anti-slapp musudan for example. So germany doesn't have that option and so it seemed more plaintiff friendly here so the lawsuit went through the city where i lived at the time which was in keo over the long ks. I think she filed the suit in fall of two thousand seventeen and it was over a year that it was finally decided but when the court finally did rule they found that i was that i had not committed defamation that everything that i had written was protected under the german constitution as free and legal speech. And if anyone listening wants to know the details and the nitty gritty in the back and forth of all of that is laid out on my website. Oh right well one thing. I would be kind of a fun one to go through. Is buzz words that end up popping at least here in boise on new medical clinics that keep opening up and i want your take as a former professional woo practitioner as the how louis these terms these these buzzwords sound okay. The first one wellness like on a scale of one to ten. Yeah so you wanna ten one being. It's perfectly reasonable. Ten being complete bullshit. But i think wellness alone. I'm gonna put at a five beauty. Oh god beauty in a medical clinic name in a medical clinic name but this is tricky because there are so many like medical aesthetic practices not not a plastic surgeon. Not a plastic started. And remember i come from los angeles okay. Maybe maybe we'll do a pass on that one. That one's hard. I'm just gonna say five. Med spa med spot. Yeah okay six. And a half anti-aging at seven seven and a half man Anything with life center knife centre nine anything with multiple buzzwords such as functional holistic holistic life wellness Health vitality center. We have a couple of we we so if they get multiples does it does it. Increase the score. Yeah it's compounded shirt vitality as such a ward and a medical sudden. Yeah i think centre centered. I mean you. You can have a medical center right but like you. You throw in vitality susser wellness center holistic center. Even person centered. It starts to feel really will be. And i think your spidey senses shed battaglia. I think you need to be cautious. A doctor's name center doctor's name center. That's yeah be cautious ray. Because they're probably selling their own product line so if it's not a line of supplements which is really easy to create might be like a line of compounded ceuta calls and so you again you have to think about The profit motivation there. And what's really at the center of that doctor's care is at your well being or is.

"And it helped to have really kind people helping me through it. And so i read a great book by as ernst and simon singh called trick or treatment. Which really did a nice job of breaking down various alternative therapies by chapter. So i could sort of thumb through the book and be like okay. I can read about acupuncture today. Because i'm not really emotionally invested and acupuncture. So let me read that chapter and then sort of like digest that information and then days later weeks later i could go to another chapter on like botanical medicine or body herbal stuff for example in homeopathy so i could take it really slow and a piece by piece bit i emailed edzard ernst and he was so kind and supportive You know just a lot of empathy expressed and sympathy expressed and i emailed john bellamy of science based medicine who was also really kind and generous with her time and just generally supportive. So that helped. My husband was insanely supportive. And didn't you know blink or questioned this decision to walk away from this career that i had just spent you know lots of years and money investing in i had i had professionals on board. I had a psychiatrist and a psychologist to sort of help me process this because it really was A grieving process. And i think i really did. Go through a lot of these stages of grief. Yeah doesn't sound all that different than somebody. Who was a pastor for three years and then called it quits. It's find out that your your careers bullshit. And what are you gonna do with that totally totally and you know there's a community around this the lifestyle around this as ideology around this so there was a lot of emptiness and loneliness and fear and anxiety and confusion and just not just feeling really loss and not really knowing what to do and so then. How did you get by after that. Well that's where the blog started. So i started writing at natural product. Diaries dot com really as a way to sort of process what was happening and there was a lot of sadness at first. And then you can see it when you look back through my blog posts. Anger was really angry. And god i was so mad. And i still have moments of being angry but not like i was just really angry and feeling like i had been misled wasted time. Of course feeling like i could been. I could've been spending that time becoming a real doctor which would have been my real dream job. You know so that lost opportunity and all of that and so i started writing to sort of process that and to sort of I needed to do it publicly. I didn't feel like i could do it alone. Because i didn't actually really trust own. E analytical skills anymore. I knew that left to my own devices. I chose a path of of bullshit and pseudoscience and so doing it publicly drawing and people who had been doing this for decades already so the folks over at science based medicine for example. It just sort of having these like giants these pillars field to To follow their begins. Sorta speak to help. Guide me through and for them to say you know. You may wanna check out this resource or actually i think actually need to rethink process for me all right. Wow and then you decided to start a new career and got into a Sounds like a pretty cool graduate program right. Well i i was very very very lucky because my fiance husband was accepted into a phd program for archaeology in germany and so we were moving to germany no matter what you know regardless of what i was doing and the traffic profession and so win it became clear that we were indeed moving to germany and that indeed did not want to be part of the naturopathic profession anymore. I realized that. I had a sort of a golden opportunity on my hands because graduate school in germany is free so here i was you know with no career the opportunity to try to go back to school for free and it just seems like i should take advantage of that so i just started researching masters program since i found a masters of science program that I think took a small gamble on me and That i was able to convince that. I would work my ass off in that program to make it you know to really commit and i even flew to germany for the interview because i really wanted to show them that. I was dedicated to educating myself. In real science and then that master's science program led to a phd opportunity And we're still here in germany for my husband's work and so again. It just seemed like a great opportunity for me to try to reestablish myself as a real expert nice well and they say that i've heard quite a few times people leave religion. They do best. If they move at least five hundred miles away you left something pseudo religion and moved more than five hundred miles and sounds like you're doing pretty good yeah. I haven't heard that but the distance did help for sure. You knowing that i wasn't going to run into anybody i went to school with for example after posting one of my angry or sad bog post was was helpful. You know that. I sort of put it out there. And then no i could go grocery shopping and go about my day without bumping into an ultra path. Felt good. yeah. I think it was good to have a whole new a fresh new start. And then you did get sued. There's a whole nother drama. Do wanna talk about that or is it a. I know i can talk about it. I'll keep it relatively brief though. Because i've written about it in detail on my blog. So so blah. Where do i begin with us one. Okay so i had found out. Essentially that different versions of my name. Were being bought up as domain names and some of these names were being redirected to naturopathic association. So like i think. Britain marie dot com for example. I think went to the american association of naturopathic positions.

"This is a head. Gum podcast while Andrew and Craig believe the joy of discovery is crucial to enjoying any well told tale. They will not shy away. From spoiling specific story beats when necessary. Plus these are books. You should have read by now. Uh It wasn't a raccoon. Andrew wasn't a raccoon that adolescent raccoon. That was giving me so much trouble last week. Hi Welcome over to gas at the books even mean to read when he was Craig. My Name's Andrew and if you're just tuning in you will remember that last week when we recorded Craig had an animal and his wall that was giving him a lot of grief he had a roommate move in and clean squatters rights in our wall and after hearing the animal noises over the phone a man said with a pretty high degree of confidence as I recall that it was definitely an adolescent recruit. Yes that was not. That's not how turned out. How the story turnout? No a very kind. Man named jared came to my house the next morning and promptly within hearing it and he had also laid eyes on outside of the building said. That's starling that's a Birdie or wall and he'd spent half an hour trapped inside our closet after cutting and then he said Hey. It's two birds in there. So and they shoved him in a cage humanely and then sealed up our wall and left never to be seen again. They say burn. The hand is worth two in the wall. Yeah I guess just like is the exchange rate one adolescent raccoon equals to starlings and is that why he thought it was an adolescent birds dressed up as a raccoon. I guess maybe just the guy on the phone had dealt with enough raccoons that he he taught we got told a story about how young raccoons like lose their way in the tunnels between houses. And this was like no bird got in through a hole and then fell and then the big bird didn't WanNa leave it behind which is noble. I suppose but we didn't get any sleep so I was. I've never been less angry. No more angrier animals. I think than I was those days. But we're we're we're here now and there are still allow birds in our neighborhood. But they're not in my house which is where they should be so. That's one story wrapped up on this. Podcast we love story. That's normally when we're not getting animals in places where animals shouldn't be each chivas. Reads a book that we've never had before and we tell the other one about it and you. The listener gets a ride along. Yeah you read this week Show I read. My Grandmother asked me to tell you she sorry Frederick Bachmann it is also published in the UK. I think as my grandmother sends her regards and apologizes. Which do you like better? I do think I like the US version better. Because I want I want the. Uk wanted to be. My Grandmother Sends Her regards and apologies. Holiday is is very odd though I guess in keeping with the t tell you she sorry. It's like more active than sends her regards and apologies. But I do like the tell you she sorry it. Just it's simpler. It's I duNNo. It's more direct. Maybe that's more American of me. Yeah Bachman is what. He's Swedish right. Yes I think the translation is by henning coach and in Coke And I enjoyed the translation. Just fine I had no like. I know I had no ringing. Endorsement is fine there. We've talked about some novels. I could translate it and it's like you can't you lose a sense of auth intent sometimes because I think we talked about this a little bit on the shadow of the wind episode like. Yeah where is it leaning into the Gina and whereas is it leaning into just a flowery translation and the fact that this book is a very close third person of seven going on eight year old helps with elect directness of the language Like feeling justified in world but also probably keeping the translator from like kind of getting out there on on a limb. I don't know what am I wanted. this was recommended to us by one of our patrons supporters. Susan thank you Susan. Susan didn't provide any additional information very excited to Dallas to read this book. So that's all was just GONNA have have to reverse engineer Susan's opinion about the spot. Hey that's okay there you go. That sounds good What do you got Bachmann or the novel Andrew Yellow just a little bit on on Bachman in the novel so the novel like US says published in two thousand fifteen in the US and in the UK and then originally in twenty thirteen in Sweden This Bach Men's second novel His first a man called Ova which I watched a movie trailer they can. I kept going back every time a character said his name. So that's that's the best pronunciation. I got based on the trailer for the film. Sure the Swedish movie that came out in two thousand fifteen by the same name. A man called the. Yes which is far as I could tell us about a crank uelmen with a gold cranky all may with a heart of gold and this book is littered with Cranky people with hearts of gold. So you can see. There's a if you've you've read a man called Ova you probably will feel right at home and liked it like you'll feel at home in this book because I there's a similar worldview. I suppose that's what I was when I was reading through a reader reviews of of this. I saw a couple of people mentioned. You know I've I've read a bunch of Walkmans work in. This is the most similar to the man called who've except with a bunch of other stuff which will get into sure. Sure Yeah other books include Britain Marie was here. Bear town which sounds like a fun us against you and then Avella's every more and every morning the way home gets longer and longer and the deal of a lifetime and in a nonfiction book called things my son needs to know about the world Britain. Marie was here. Might be in the same universe like fictionally as This book my grandmother etc. Because that's one of the main key one of the characters that we meet one secondary characters that we meet and from what I read about. The Synopsis Picks up where that character leaves off in this book of a woman whose marriage falls apart and she goes off to explore a new chapter in her life. SO I don't. I don't know that it's been called a sequel. I would have expected it to be but the more of a view askew never S- situation. Yes definitely where things are where. Things are vaguely related by virtue of not directly contradicting on. Oh sure times silent Bob shows. I forgot that that's what that universe was called and I forgot that it was a universe. Yeah the older guy. Like every seventy five episodes or so I bring up the view esque universe in reference to some world building. One of those movies I've ever spent real time with his dogma which I don't know if it holds up but I liked it I like at the time and I think I choose to leave it back there though. Alan Rickman is good. In as our CAU- Yes Allen. Richtman is good in it interesting okay. That's all I got about him that he did he's a he's also like a newspaper columnist and essayist and then got into novel writing There's a New York Times profile of on him from twenty sixteen mostly on the like. Wow this guy's sell us books like Well like why the itsel lots of books in America like. How did that happen okay? That's it traces. It from like the rejection of the Ova manuscript which he said one publisher said we like your novel. We think you're writing has potential but we see no commercial potential and one of the like booksellers who acquired the rights. Peter Boylan said I had a great voice and it was different from everything else I was reading. It wasn't Scandinavian Nawar Scandinavian. He paused searching for the right description. Something Else I. It is interesting to think about it as a as an American book industry though like the Swedish export from the like mid to late arts was stieg Larsson and like the girl with the Dragon. Tattoo and now homing and then this guy. That's more I've never read any of those. But that's more of like a thriller. Yes yes archetype. Right yes And this is very different at a whole different thing so reading reading reviews about the book. And because because you asked me to just let come with some kind of vague handle on what the book was. Yeah please and like you said to me like it's not quite sick. Lit like the the new on air because because we talked about it or on her own but not when we were playing. Drive trucks right. Cyclic is a sort usually. I WANNA a fiction. A character dies or is dying in that is the like you the instigating event of the story or just like a access that everything sort of yes the What's the John Green Book Palmar our stars our stars. Maybe it's either a walk to remember and or the Britney Spears movie crossroads. Yeah it's some you gotta spend the last good times with someone's life a book. The one that I that came to mind that I read for the show while but I still think about sometimes said tell the wolves I'm home. Oh have it here. It's a girl's uncles. Mike Boyfriend is dying of AIDS in the late eighties early nineties sure sure and teaches the girl a little something about life along the way like. It's easy to be dismissive of the of the genre and so so this isn't quite that but it's sort of playing in that wheelhouse is a character. Death in that does set the events of the of the book into motion but it sounds like in addition to just being about Mike people with hearts of gold. It's also got some like sort of magical realism means. Sort of make believe it has a main believes going on. Yeah let me give you the really reductive sentence that I put in our chat before we started recording already. He already gave it to me. You don't have to you have to give me again. That's why I'm saying I have it already. Let me say it out loud in case anyone else needs to hear it. Okay if you think that's necessary. Eight-year-old learns that a bunch of adults in her life are more connected than she thought and that everyone is more complicated than they seem at first glance and that is definitely what happens in the book and it is run through this. You Know Main Character Elsa who is seven going on eight. She is quote unquote. Different is a for is a term that both and people people who like her and people who don't like her consider her different and it's like either a good or a bad thing based on whether or not you like her she's A very precocious kid. She's Super Smart. She loves to read But she also loves to tell people when they're wrong and loves to people. Love love to like wind. That super endearing wheeled that knowledge that she you know really ingests a lot of information and then like is pretty insightful. About how people behave and just her peers. Her seven year old boys are not prepared to receive that type of treatment from anyone let alone. A girl If you can't hear my I roll and the whiplash gave my neck for being a seven-year-old boy there for a second So she really only has one friend who really gets her and that is her granny who I think is seventy seven and she has. She's she is seven and then granny seventy yes. Yes and granny is like Man Take multiple versions of the like outside the box grandparent from fiction but like and roll it into one but like she's not super problematic like she's not you know spouting off with stuff that she shouldn't say necessary racist racist grandma she's more like the grandparents from. Hey Arnold yes she's A. She's an agent of chaos. Graham is and her and Elsa get along very very well and so the it's not quite the inciting in the book but the major incident in the first quarter of the book is that Granny does pass away from cancer and she leaves this like Treasure Hunt of letters for Elsa to find and then deliver to various people who live in their apartment building And over the course we'll get we'll dive deeper than this.
