"See this see three local communities. This is little bit of Kappa seat. The breaking today is Saturday April. Eighteen to twenty twenty. And I'm waiting till you is in Brooklyn New York location somewhere in my home city on a Yoga Mat podcasting from the floor and my father would be so proud community. How are you? I pray that this message reaches you and yours. Well we are trying to do these cuff issey to check. Ins More often in my dream of dreams. I'm doing every single day with you guys and I'm trying to figure out place in time. Will we can all meet in real time online so Stay tuned yesterday. I recorded one message like five times every single time. I intended to record. Something would go wrong. It was as if something supernatural didn't want me to get my reflections across vow something that I've been personally concerned about for so many years for so many years. I mean I almost feel like part of the reason I was born was to sound the alarm to be a squeaky squeaky wheel. Four the dangers of modern technology. If used incorrectly how come we keep when the same modern technology just being used against the masses to repress depress to contain us to track us to spy on us to listen to US I mean. Are we so evil if you really think about it? The percentages of people who are just really operating in evil ways. Some of those people are actually in the limelight in front of your face and I've got a feeling that as the Times move on closer we'll see more of those tyrants will be revealed and right now. I have a question that I want to ask all of you and I've been asking this question for years of you've been blog about. Who Do you listen to? Who SHOULD WE BE LISTENING TO? Why is the media touting Dr Fao cheesy why is he even being interviewed on the Breakfast Club? This is when you ask questions when you're like. Oh my God like what's going on with these outlets these urban outlets that are supposedly for the people but then are they really them or who they're working for everybody's locked in this was why it's so hard like when you work for big entity and when you trace the media entities even though there's so much media to so much diverse media it really boils down to about six companies at the top controlling the message and I'm not saying this from a point of view of someone who's just looking at information television production professional with let's see fifteen. Plus Years Experience I worked on hundreds of music television productions in my life. I've budgeted hundreds of television productions for vh one MTV bt networks. And you get close you hear conversations and you work on shows or you're part of teams and you see how magically certain things to happen. Nobody knows why and sometimes many times. We're so close to something we don't see it. There's blind spots. This is why like in this conversation when I say community. I'm saying everyone. The child the elder the person who may not have completed pass high school education but they have that St wisdom of the HAPP that gut intuition they might be just a scholar of earth wisdom or of multidimensional spaces. And when we hear people if you if you haven't seen how everybody just picks up the talking points whether it's because they're mimicking each other or copying each other ords mandate. Let's see what are some of those new words that we have brought into consciousness that we didn't really have words for words like social distancing social distancing? It wasn't until I actually watched the movie. Six five feet apart five feet apart with my niece now. I got introduced to this idea that human beings would need to relate to each other right and this is the story five feet apart is very different very very different than with actually happening the love story of two people who had this disease that if they got too close to each other their immune was so compromised that they could only speak to each other five feet apart six feet apart actually but the name of movies five feet apart. The recommended social distance for them was six feet apart. Yes and then like about a week later after watching that net flicks I believe movie. We're being told that we have social distance and we have to be six feet apart. So whether there's a connection not or predictive programming I have no idea look human beings divine whether they realize it or not whether day no way or they working with people through their creative activities. Creativity is a connection opening the door to the divine. Why like it can be kind of like paradoxical when you're like I don't get it. I thought that only goodness can create and bend and Benefit from the great multi dimensional metaphysics or a reality but it's knowledge skill right and of course. I believe that the path of the heart is stronger freeze frequency in residence and nothing can match it but here on Earth when you look at statistics so many of us here on earth or not by breeding optimal frequency and part of it is because we're living in fear over living in desperate times. We're living in such desperate circumstances. It could be a a poverty of the mind. Maybe where we live. So poverty stricken getting access to basic supplies like food. Water shelter is difficult. So if when you're living in survival mood so challenging to connect to the divine some say it doesn't exist and yet others say that that is one of the portals to experiencing these other realms when you are forced into place of stillness or you have nowhere else to look but within you can travel through that portal through your internal net. And so we're living in times where people think some say that decision spiritual or and then you hear the president and some of his people's call this team visible enemy were fighting the invisible enemy and inquire minds like this one wonder is the invisible enemy. Covert Nineteen Curl. Virus was something else and neck. Take you down another rabbit hole. Another rabbit hole. That can take you yet again away from yourself every single time we wake up. There is a multitude of distractions competing for your attention to take you to another place way from you away from your divine presence. We incur needed into these bodies for reason. Some of US know there. We've been here on missions just like I've known since of also in the third grade new facts. That didn't make sense. I knew I didn't see myself with kids. I didn't see myself married. I saw myself working and I was completely fine with that and I remember reading the Row Walden. I believe spy pond and knowing through his works that I understood even though I was so young and still understanding so much about the world. I knew that when I read about this idea of into the future of everything being so automated things just getting done for you. Things just always being there with you. My Soul. The natural aspects of me Was born and raised in an urban environment knew that that was a natural and that as human beings we need both we mean to be connected to what's natural perhaps is why my sister and I. We love to work crystals and herbs and an implant medicine so that we can continue to maintain that secret connection to the natural. So he we are ladies and gentlemen tribe. We find ourselves listening to leaders that want to promote more surveillance. I mean I'm hearing things. I've never even heard before corona virus surveillance influenza surveillance me. What the heck everything is surveillance and all I see is people say yes. Let's have it. Yes yes chip me. Yes yes yes. Let's have free vaccines for all because that is the answer. Yes yes yes I WANNA to go back to work so I will agree to have more my freedoms and taken away and I will say yes to serve having more of the freedoms of my brothers and sisters taken away. Because I'm GonNA position where I have a leg asleep legislative powers or I can influence or effect. So beware for your leaders are and who. You're listening to because some of those people that have been the stars to celebrities some of those media. Darlings are in fact the enemy of the people of humanity of the beings. And how do you know that your heart starts to tell you sometimes with a heart? We can't believe that people can actually be so cruel and yet the Bible. If you've been studying burchell tax like the Bible they've been telling you over and over and over and over. That devil can look like the sweetest most banal beautiful be yet at the same time. We must be careful that we don't fall into judgment and start throwing rocks at what looks like Gilt Right. I'd say let's use our superpowers to pray for the most benevolent outcome to use this time to level up our own frequencies to pray for the leadership to come to clarity so many people that look like your enemy are actually. They're for US. But we have to be discerning and the only way you can get to. More information is by being like warrior staying calm. Just observing the pieces are still being reviewed to us so the share. Let's have open conversations less. Ask MORE QUESTIONS. Less try not to condemn so much because as I said things are getting revealed and we end. We are in for multiple shocks surprises to our system and we are all needed. We are all needed here. Everyone has an insight. Everyone has a wisdom that is useful. And it's needed if it's applied in the right way. I don't want to live this life of twenty twenty this existence that I fought hearts incarnate into only to let the time pass me by and I did nothing. I said nothing. 'cause I was too scared like my elder friends. Say It's time to happy suitcases packed. Not just the physical ones. Thank you guys for listening. This is Roselle Peres courtesy. Tho- break remember.

Peek of our new website on our patriarch on. We've got a screen shot of up there and at the end of this episode.

Cloud gazer a group of four transgender non-conforming food service workers out of Asheville North Carolina. Here's their song. Gay Cops are traders. Just because we are oppressed does not mean that we do not ourselves fall victim to enacting the same unconscious policing racy. Yup is writing. Had I nine Also you may notice that Our website might look a little different Over the next couple of weeks. We are currently switching over to a new website. And it's been a long time in the making. I know we just released that the current site that we have a couple of years ago. But it's getting a little clunky and honestly it's a little hard to read the text on the black background so we're updating and a bit making it a little more user friendly and organize and we're able to do that because of the Patriots support and the sponsor support that we receive but if you WANNA see a sneak. Peek of what that new website is going to look like. You can head over to patron We have a post and an image of what the front page will look like for patriotic supporters. Only since you know you guys are the ones that have been helping us Be Able to do projects like this. And so we want to give you the first look and also if you have any feedback let now and also that feedback applies to anyone You know not not just the Patriots supporter but anyone that listened homegrown or visit our website. We'd like to know what is it that you're looking for when you go to the HOMO ground website. What would you expect to be there kind of information or resources on how you use the home ground website is mostly just to find out information about the podcast or would you like additional stuff on there too? We can't do a whole lot. I know sometimes get a little ambitious. And at one point we were doing Music video releases and stuff like that which was so awesome and fun But it does take a lot of time and people power to maintain that so. Hopefully you know once we get the new site up and running than We can dedicate more resources to having someone Maintain the website on a regular basis depending on you know if that's what people are interested in But for right now you know The podcast has been the main driving force of home ground. So that has been where my energy has been going And I know maybe that doesn't seem Apparent on the outside because you know we release an episode. Maybe once a month at at the moment but you know we're working on some processes and things are submissions are currently closed right now. But we're about to reopen them And this new website is part of that plan so we WANNA have a new website where people can go a new easy submission process and Not only just for you know band submitting but also for us because we a lot of submissions. A lot of inquiries and After a while that can build up and it can get a little disorganized and chaotic so having those systems in place is really important for us to be able to keep up with the submissions. Were getting able to feature people on a timely basis. I know there have definitely been submissions. That have been submitted like two or more years ago that still haven't been featured and so we try our best to get those out there. I wanted to be able to feature every single band. But at this point honestly. It's really unrealistic to be able to do that. And I've been trying to figure out different ways by doing the mix tapes but still you know. Creating these episodes does take a lot of energy and the amount of submissions that we get It's just unrealistic to feature every single submission. So I apologize if you did submit your music to us and we haven't featured it yet but we are going to kind of start from scratch once we launched the new website and so we're going to send an email out to everyone who has joined the waiting lists for submissions and even people who have submitted in the past. So that if you did some it in the past and you haven't been featured you'll get an opportunity to resubmit again and You know for able to use your submission than we will do that. No promises even though like it really breaks my heart to not feature everyone but It's at a point now. Where Yeah we have to. Kinda make sure the audio quality is good enough to be on the PODCAST. I know in the past. We used to feature a lot of just home recorded demos and stuff like that and a lot of the. Times I would spend a lot of time. mixing the levels trying to make it sound as good as possible to match the rest of the production quality of the of the podcast But right now you know. We're trying to to really focus on things and that does take a lot of time. So it's really important to have a quality recording or at least one where there's no static or you know a lot of noise and yeah and also being really thoughtful in your submission when you fill out. The application Is Very helpful to so a lot of times if people just kind of Skim through it. And just like Oh. Yeah I'm just here for exposure Blah Blah Blah and. You don't really talk much about why you WanNa be on the podcast store. You know what being on the podcast means to you a lot of times. We'll assume that you're just a PR person looking to get your bands featured on whatever or someone who might not even align with homo grounds mission. And you're just trying to get your music out there and you don't really care where it's being played if that's what you're trying to do than homegrown might not be the place for you. Were really looking for people who want to build community and support each other and to create a network so you know writing that in your mission form really helps and also as we identify more artists to do more in depth features on Where we interview you. And you drive the episode where it's your story and your narrative with your music embedded inbetween than you know. That really helps us decide. Okay this person has a really really moving story or you know. They're really passionate about what they're doing. So those are the factors that come into play when we're deciding to feature can go to home dot com slash waitlisted and if our website is still functioning correctly You should be able to sign up to be alerted by email when we open submissions. See that was a lot of talking. But that's basically what's going on with home ground and if you're interested in knowing more about the behind the scenes stuff like this and the website on that anything else. Check OUT OUR PATRON. Try to post more behind the scenes stuff on there and You know now that there's a lot of stuff in in place right now and we have a lot of updates More behind the scenes stuff will be posted on there. also will be bringing on new producers this year so that's exciting and hopefully we'll have a lot more episodes so striving to get back on a more consistent. Release schedule so right now. I guess we're like Once a month Trying to get back at least two a month and hopefully idealistically maybe once a week so All of this is possible to With more support from patriotic because it just enables us to do a lot more and to bring on people that can help Because it's hard to do it all with only you know it's hard for me to do it all on my own and it's hard to find People that are willing to do it for you know volunteering or people who have other jobs and stuff like that. So yeah you know the story you know how it goes being a creator being an artist being a musician all of it is very you'd put in a lot of work and you don't really You know sometimes you can't afford to pay your bills you spend so much time and energy creating this thing that you love creating this thing that helps the world and is beneficial to others but you know unfortunately sometimes those aren't the things that help you survive intern in in this capitalistic world. In terms of paying your rent and paying your bills you have to find other ways to support yourself in that way. So you know taking on jobs that might be unhealthier toxic. Take your time and they take away your energy from the things that you really want to focus on so anyway you know that. Whole drill Check OUT HOMO. Grounds DOT COM website. Might be a little funky. Patriot dot com slash home ground. And we'll see you next time awesome.
Why Do Baby Teeth Fall Out?
"And this is but why podcast for curious kids from Vermont public radio. I'm John Lynch on this show. We take questions from curious. Kids just like you all over the world and we find answers this week. We're taking a look inside our own mouths. We're going to visit a dentist and learn about teeth. My name is are now. I'm six years old and I live in Brooklyn New York? My questioners are do baby. T full out man. I live in the next night. I'm five years old and they have to loose teeth. I WANNA know Get loose six years from Pendleton Indiana. Hi My name is on. I'm six years old. I live in Seattle Washington. My Name is Felix. I'm for I love that tool. Don't nine name is NASA. I am six and a half years old. My name is Cordell. I am six and three quarters years old. My name is Sam. I am five and we live in to Watlington Oregon and my question is. Why do our baby fall at night? I WANNA know why people T- fallout. Why do we use our t? Sludgy teeth follow. Why do we have both baby teeth and grownup teeth today? We're talking about teeth with a friendly dentist and I just want to mention that we actually did this interview before. Many people around the world had to stop going to the places they normally walk or to school back when it was easier to meet up with other people in public spaces so I went to see this dentist not too far from where I work here in Vermont. My name is Aaron main of Pediatric Dentists? Ed timberline dental group in South Burlington Vermont. So we're here in this office. That a kid would recognize as pretty standard dental office. There's a funny Lookin' chair that can move up and down and continue to back. There are some tools that look really interesting. And there's a place where you can sit or you as the dentists can stand and a place where you can get your gloves to put gloves on. So you're touching anybody's mouth with your bare hands. Can you show us some of the tools that you use? Because it's not something that we get to just hang out in a lot a dentist's office and it would be neat to know how you use your actual tools. Oh for sure all right let me show you a couple of things are cheers. Here will sit up and recline to the point where we can visualize The patients mouth better. I'll hit this automatic. Button will move the chair up and back. There's also a bright light over the chair so the dentist can see inside your mouth. While you're leaning back Andrew. Dentist will likely be wearing a mask over his or her face because they want to keep their own spit out of your mouth. We're going to talk about baby teeth soon. But do you WANNA learn a little bit about a few more of the tools dentist uses. I'M GONNA operate one of these tools. Which is what you would typically get at your cleaning motorized. Brush that you get at the dental office and I use this fancy little pedal on the floor to act to release some air which goes in the tool to make it spin. Sounds like a race car. And what is that tool? Do it spins a Special Cup which contains the abrasive tooth Polish. That we use it. You're cleaning it gives you that gritty. Feel like you're just at the beach and it's a windy day. Yeah it seems like not very spicy toothpaste with sand in it. And then they're using a tool to sort of spin it all over your teeth. Exactly what we're doing but then your teeth feels so good when it's done they're just so smooth you kind of want to run your tongue around it all the time. After you've got teeth cleaned. We spend our whole deliberating teeth. I have some tools that we use at a cleaning their shape in a certain way to fit around teeth so that they can remove Tartar. Which is plaque. That is hardened on her teeth. What is plaque plaque is? The germs in the food gets left around our teeth if we don't remove it with a toothbrush daily. Oftentimes it'll look whitish or yellow and Indo field kind of squishy you with your tongue on your teeth. It almost looks like your teeth are wearing sweaters but our teeth weren't meant to wear sweaters. But you can't even always see the plaque right. I mean sometimes you go to the dentist and they'll be scraping away and it's like well I wash. I brushed my teeth every day. They looked fine to me. And what they're scraping. Away is the tartar a plaque. That we can't remove on our own so despite your best efforts that's why people go to the dentist at least every six months to have it removed. Because even if you're doing the best job you can. They're still a little bit that we leave and our teeth all right. So these little scraper tools. They sound I wanna point out right now just so that you know kids. He's not even doing it on my teeth or his teeth. He's doing it on the table but it does sound remarkably like what it would sound like if you scraped someone's to to if you wanted some water after you had that greedy toothpaste. We can wash out the mouth with this little Straw. That's what you been doing something with my teeth and maybe you actually even scored some water. But you don't want me to swallow it and you put that Stri- and it's that suction thing but it's so weird because it sort of makes your mouth feel like it's going all of a sudden for the tool that we use to clean. The tooth is called a hand piece. Some people call it a drill and it makes a real high pitched whining noise and it also squirts water to cool it down so that we're not hurting teeth when we're fixing them and you're not calling it a drill but are you actually taking away part of my tooth when you do that. Typically you're taking away the part of the two that's damaged so you are removing part of your tooth. But the part of the two that was in really bad shape to begin with that sound might also make especially some of the adults listening. Just sort of shudder involuntarily. Why do you think some people are afraid of the dentist? There's a lot of sounds and sensations. That aren't part of our normal routine so they throw us off a little bit and being at the dental chair sitting back and having someone touch your teeth and look in your mouth really closely can be a little scary if you're not used to it so if you are somebody who feels anxious or hasn't to the dentist before what can you say to your dentist or your dental hygienist. If you're feeling nervous I would say speak up. Make make them know why you feel the way you do and they'll go through steps to help you out. I think the biggest thing is just to communicate and let them know why might feel nervous. But it's okay to feel nervous. Everybody's nervous in new situations and we just want to help you out and there's ways we can do that. Okay now we know a little bit more about the dentist's Office. So let's get to that question. You all seem to want an answer to hi. My name is L. Elise Mining is Jack. My Name is Asia. My Name's Brooklyn. Why your teeth fall out? Hi My name is Elon I. In five years I live in Columbus Ohio and my question is why beauty baby teeth fall out. My name is Jasper. I live in Jacksonville Florida. I May and my question is how did he follow. Why do we need two sets of teeth? Why do we need baby teeth and then permanent or adult teeth? We get two sets to better match the way we as humans eating grow weed a bigger variety of foods as we get older and our mouths are much bigger and we need more chewing power than the baby teeth can provide if we were alligators and sharks. We could make new teeth whenever we would need them. But that's not the case so we basically need permanent or adult teeth because for a couple of reasons one is our heads are smaller a little bit smaller. We're babies and so those big teeth would look pretty funny in a kid sized head but then also you're saying because we eat different food and because we have different behaviors we actually need. Teeth can handle more. They're sort of tougher teeth. What we have for the next seventy or eighty or ninety years exactly. The teeth are designed in a certain way. The layers of the teeth that make up the outer shell the to the outer layers called. Enamel and it's thicker with a permanent tooth because it needs to be the inner layer which is called the Denton supports the enamel and that's also thicker in an adult tooth baby. Teeth don't need to be as thick as the permanent teeth. How does your body know when it's time for a baby tooth to get loose and go away and you know as kids know? This happens at a lot of different times for different people and for some of us were waiting and waiting and waiting and all of our friends seemed to be losing teeth. And we're not it's like come on mouth figure it out. So how does your body know when to lose? A tooth was definitely a source of joy for a lot of people and sometimes frustrating for others. Because I think it becomes almost a rite of passage with a lot of kindergartners and first graders but as we grow our bodies have special cells that slowly eat away the roots of baby teeth To allow permanent teeth to take their place. Usually wiggly teeth happens in kindergarten or first grade. Teeth don't Grow Lake your body. They start growing even before. You're born and the tops of the teeth Called Crowns Awreddy full-size. When you see them in your mouth and so they're ready to take action so our our permanent teeth are adult teeth actually inner mouth when we're born to or do they grow when you're a little kid. They're starting to develop so each tooth. Each type two starts to grow at a certain point. After you're born so early on We call our first set of molars six year. Molars in our incisors. And we're starting to already calcified those crowns or those types of those teeth. If we were to take an x ray that young we can see. Those teeth already developing. I still WANNA know how is it? My big too. That's pushing my baby tooth out and making it wiggly or does my baby to suddenly know. GotTa Make Room and then the big tooth can come up and grow and how does the tooth? It's been sort of hanging out there for a while knowhow to grow up into my mouth. And how does it know went to stop and not just keep going and fall out again? That is a question that actually vital scientists to this day we have identified certain cells. That will eat the roots of baby teeth so that permanent teeth can bully their way into the mouth. We don't know exactly why it happens. Or what triggers it to happen? But we do know that it's related to your particular growth and development pattern. Certain kids are on the early scale. Certain kids around the lake but almost everybody follows the same sequence of teeth coming in. Typically you get your bottom front teeth. I they start to get a little loose and then we traveled to the top two teeth in the center and they get loose we call the central incisors and then at the same time sometimes before a slightly after your six year molars growing and those are teeth. That don't replace any teeth in your mouth. They just grow in because it's time and then typically we have lateral on sizes which are the incisors next to the central incisors and then we have first molars canines and second molars. So in that order. There's a lot going on especially in the first two years of life survey I'm a Arizona. I live in Mobile Alabama and my question is why do people have two sets of teeth? My Name is Lucy. Im seven years or I login falsehoods Trajan. My question is why do not lose your dokie. Why not be like alligators sharks and have four or five sets of teeth and getting new shiny ones every now and then all the animals that I've canvas that have replacement teeth are definitely not as pretty as the teeth. We have so there would be a disaster but our teeth are very specialized enamel. That coats are teeth or the outsides of RT is the hardest material found in the body so they are well equipped to last a long time but there are certain situations where we beat up our teeth for a while. So that's when you're Dennis comes into play but yeah it might be nice to just grow a new tooth if we had a big problem since you can't grow new adult teeth you need to keep the ones you have healthy coming up. We'll talk about ways to do that. This is why a podcast for curious kids from Vermont public radio. I'm the host Jane Lindholm and today we're learning all about teeth and how to keep them healthy with a dentist named Sharon main. Hi My name. That Lilia Pantaleo Mike Question. Why two babies when they were in Good Morning. My name is ill see. I'm five piece old. I live in Blue Mountains Australia. My question is how to buddies make tastes. Teeth are very special because they grow in before. You're born teeth. Will Form Crowns. Crowns are fully formed under the gums. And when a tooth appears in the mouth it stops growing its crown. The crown is already finished which what is the crown? The crown is the top of the tooth. The part that you can see because a tooth also has a route that you don't see correct and the route still grows long after the tooth comes in the mouth usually for about three years with a permanent tooth. So you were saying before were born. We actually have teeth in our mouth. Why don't we have teeth that we can see? Why do they have to grow in the first place? I mean they're already there in our bodies. Why don't we just have them to start with? We'll babies when they're born. They get nutrition from milk and from formula so they wouldn't be able to have teeth. That would be useful so teeth. Usually role in at about six months of age and by between about four to six months is when you'd expect to have solid foods and so kids would be at a loss to have teeth too early. They'd be tackling things that they couldn't handle with their bodies. Hi My name is Linda. I'm from Franklin line. I'm seven years old location. Is I thank you? Why our teeth white or kind of white teeth are made up of that outer layer that we talked about the Enamel. And there's a component of calcium that's integrated into the enamel that gives it. Its way color. The layer underneath an AMMO as called Denton. And that's a little more yellowish or brownish. And so as we age sometimes we wear away enough. The Enamel where the teeth do appear a little more yellow. Sure a little brownish. Hello my name is your hardest for New Haven Connecticut or Microsoft's seven years old. My question is why do we need comes in? Talk about your gums and I know as a dentist. You're gonNA tell us why gums are so important well. Teeth can have as many as three routes. I've actually seen teams with more than three routes best not typical and they're stuck pretty tight unless their baby teeth on their way out and the gums hold the teeth in place. So you really want to take care of your gums to have your teeth. Stay put without your gums and your teeth would have a hard time. They cover the inside your mouth in your jaws. They also cover your teeth and with problems that we see gums can get into trouble and get infected and then the teeth subsequently get in trouble and get infected. So that's why we really want to encourage good homecare and your mom and dad always asks you to brush before bed and in the morning before school. Well let's talk about brushing because we've got some questions about brushing as well. My name is Leah. I am seven years old. I live in Lancashire Pennsylvania and I WANNA know why sugar Rachi ready set go. My name is Ellie and eleven. Mitch Scheme I want to know how to treat make whole of your Keith named Violet. I live in Boston Massachusetts. And six and a quarter. Why and how teeth for my name's Moses and I'm eight years old. I live in Vancouver Canada and my question is. How does sugar make cavities? I love your show. Hi My name is river and I'm forty years old. I've within those California have. My question is why sugar caused cavaliers by. I think many people who are listening. We'll recognize that. They've heard this idea. That sugar rots your teeth. You shouldn't have too much sugar or sometimes you'll say can I have some candy and an adult in your life will say. No you're going to get a cavity. You're not going to get a cavity from having one piece of Candy. But what's the connection between sugar and cavities? There are germs in her mouth till bacteria that live on our teeth and gums and certain bacteria love sugar and they create something called. Acid ACID MAKES HOLES OR CAVITIES. On Enamel brushing helps to lessen the sugars and the germs and Also something called fluoride can help to strengthen enamel against an acid attack. So if you didn't eat any sugar at all in your entire life could you just have to brush your teeth? You're never gonNA get a cavity. Not necessarily we still have to remember those gums. We were talking about earlier. So there are certain countries where diets don't have a lot of what we call refined sugars or sugars. That are very very sugary. That bacteria love and a lot of those people that live in those areas. Don't have a lot of cavities. They may still suffer little bit of gum disease but the cavity counter really low. But you said we still have to brush our teeth even if we don't eat sugar because of the gums. Because why are you trying to what we might call stimulate? The gums like just sort of rub on the gums and that helps somehow keeping me. Gums healthy is done with tooth brushing. You want to clean the tooth against becomes because germs light to live in the little pocket that surrounds the tooth. And even if you don't have sugars you still have. Bacteria that hang out in those areas in. The gums aren't really happy about that bacteria so they get really puffy and sometimes bleed and if you stimulate the gums and you clean the bacteria and take the food away. Then the gums will be healthier in your tooth. We help you healthier too. Is that also. Why we have to floss artistes. Exactly we can't see in between our teeth so of course there are things in between our teeth that are getting stuck and we can't even see germs so they're really in there and same with the chicken naked stuck in between that we're trying to get out from last night so it's really important that we try and make it a daily routine or the piece of celery. That's always that little string of celery that gets stuck between your teeth. It's so hard to get out. Oh for sure. I struggle with that all the time. My name on the fan five you and a little deal new your dog. I WANNA know why. Don't while the toothpaste when you wash your teat. You're often told. Don't swallow it. Don't swallow the toothpaste. Why is it such a big deal to swallow something designed to be put in your mouth in the first place? Toothpaste specially designed to help clean teeth. And if it has Florida will actually help strengthen enamel but if it's swallowed it can make your belly upset and of swallowing large amounts. It can even lead to something called fluorosis which is little white lines. Chalk on your tooth enamel despite its safety. Toothpaste is considered a medicine and should be treated and stored carefully. Is it a big deal if you swallow a tiny bit though? How scared do we need to be about swallowing a little bit of toothpaste a tiny bits perfectly safe? If you listen to the recommended amounts by your dentist you'll be in great shape maiden name Rosie Wina hamsters of eleven. Tom Francisco in question is why does toothpaste cleaner water flavored? And how they get made thank you. Hi My name is Cam and nine eight and I live in Missouri in my question is. How does toothpaste work toothpaste? It has special ingredients such as abrasives that are made to Polish teeth. Shine them up. So Abrasives are like little pieces of grit not dirt but little greedy pieces but very small right so it's sort of because if it was just a smooth thing smooth gel or liquid wouldn't do much to serve rubbed the gun coffee your teeth right exactly just like we use sandpaper to kind of Polish things up. Like fine grit don't use sandpaper on your teeth. They incorporate some abrasives that have tiny little greedy elements to polish the outside of the tooth. It also has fluoride to help control. Cavities and special detergents to help make the foam to make it easier. To spread around your teeth in a uniform layer and a detergent is kind of soap right. Kinda like soap kind of like a soap a cleans like soap and it helps it to provide that nice layer. That goes over all the teeth. Not just part of the mouth. So that's why it's so important to brush your teeth. Your teeth are connected to your overall health or the mouth is the gateway to the body so I think people underestimate your mouth rule in nutrition without teeth and without functioning teeth. We often would forego certain foods that may otherwise be healthy for our bodies in that sense you know. We need good teeth because we all want healthy bodies before. I left the dentist's office. I asked there in Maine what it was that made him want to be a dentist in the first place. Actually it was the dental care I received as a kid might dentist. Growing up was Really engaged in the community and and so. I thought that he was the most caring person the way he paid attention to everybody that came into his office. I hope all of you have a dentist. You like and are able to access to dental care to keep your teeth. Nice and healthy. Don't forget that inbetween any visit to the dentist.

Likewise I feel like we're we're so close yet so far from each other how we are so close. I just walked across the bridge for the first time during this whole crisis than I've seen your Brooklyn Bridge photos. Thanks to instagram. We can certainly do Brooklyn Bridge. Meet up obviously. Our mutual friend stacy her and I have met up multiple times in the middle of the bridge to hand off for they treats than just to say hello and Cheers a half. A glass arose. May before we went back to our sides of the bridge which was pretty awesome. You did that on top of the on the bridge yeah. Her birthday was recently last week or Memorial Day whenever that day was Two days ago basically a month ago. Yes we she requested a week ago. She texted me inches. Like cinnamon rolls and Bianca's chocolate cake. That's what I want for my birth founded sure so we made it happen and we brought a little bottle of Rosa Little Mason Jars. Had A little toast on a bridge in handed off birthday treats of. That's really sweet. Tell us who Bianca is why her chocolate cake is so special. So Bianca is my fiance. We were engaged in September. We've been together for awhile now. So if you if you've known what I've eaten for any of my life it hasn't always been the healthiest. It's certainly been kind of Brown crispy fried in the general direction of my Diet and so upon meeting her and kind of understanding what it actually meant to take care of my INSCI- She got me hooked on this whole healthy baking and trying to figure out new ways of making these cakes I love and so her chocolate cake is grain free gluten free dairy free refined sugar free. Sounds like there's nothing good left in it but I swear to God it is. It is so good. It's like the Fudgy Omen Brownie. It's absolutely delicious. And she made it once for Stacey who then requested the cake many times since. Then we're talking about Stacy London who some of you know from what not to wear from TV and stacy's million other things not just that. So does the most important question does this amazing chocolate cake. Frosting okay so I will say it the first round and trial batch it absolutely. Did it had like this vegan refined sugar using like powdered monk? Fruit jitter whatever which is genius thing and it did. And then we started we. We did it once and we layered. It was all supposed to be layered and then we realized we didn't really like. It became too sweet so we just took that out and now. It's kind of like a Brownie celebration. Which I feel like is one. It's one less step that we don't have to do and she freezes really well so we put them in little We wrap them. We put them in the freezer in any time we wanted. We put take it out. Put it in the microwave for thirty seconds. And it's it's perfect all right. Will you know you have to share this recipe now on instagram? Anything about the cake is that every time that I've gone to make it or even lended a hander. Quite frankly just looked at it. I have screwed it up somehow because I don't know how to follow recipes and so I always get yelled at on so I don't ever make it anymore but I get from. Can it be a birthday cake without frosting? Yes absolutely I think. I gave her cinnamon rolls those that have frosting but we weren't. We didn't have the cake but we have the frosting and then we have the chocolate cake but no frosting so I feel like the combination of a long work out perfectly. I love frosting. I Will Bianco make the cake. Frosting begin have a Brooklyn Bridge me up and I will happily off well the good news for Bianca's my birthday is in March so she has plenty of time this monk fruit sugar so it's it's the consistency of powdered sugar so month. Fruit sugar has many variations. So in our household pantry. Right now we have white granulated sugar. We have golden monk fruit sugar and we have powdered sugar. So looking at it the texture and the grain it looks exactly like granulated white sugar and then maybe like a fine. You know like I don't know all natural sugar and then legit powdered sugar but quite frankly it's keeping me away from bags of processed sugar and candy. I will do anything to crave my like my sweet tooth right now and it's I love it you. It's like a one to one swap out so I think it's great. I pretty much use it every day. I started doing hot chocolate every three thirty instead of coffee So I make a Buji hot chocolate. What's in your boozing hot chocolate so it's called so there's a company called wooden spoons and so Bianca is also the food and beverage world. And so she. She gets a bunch of samples a lot of times and so the sample came of what in spoon rose cocoa powder and with a little hint vanilla and so it's unsweetened it looked like a very I guess whole foods esque Kakapo with sump laboring and beautiful packaging inside take a couple of unsweetened almond milk steam. It in our espresso machine thingy tablespoon of the rose cow powder kinship sea salt and a teaspoon of sugar the golden one. Because I feel like it has more depth linger. Ooh that sounds so nice. I don't know what it is about. You know what I I. Actually you know what it is. This idea of all of a sudden like life standing still where I realized like. Okay well let's take advantage of this time like I feel like a lot of people are trying to But I also don't want to be like put too much time into like trying to reinvent myself as sounds really exhausting so I'll just do little small things and the idea of trying to figure out how to make all the things that I you know. I guess indulged in every single day of my life. I'm in how to do them. I guess slightly more healthier version has been like this mission of the last three months you are sheltering in place in in New York City so probably the last time folks heard from you via Cherry bomb. You were down Austin and you had opened a beautiful new restaurant called Arlo Gray. And we super lucky to visit you there. Gosh was it twenty eighteen. Yeah we opened. June of twenty people need. Yeah June of two thousand eighteen. So this is an Austin Texas in the Line Hotel. I'm GonNa let you tell people about the restaurant. But there were so many cool factors that went into the whole experience and then just to have the most blowing food just really tied. Bow around the entire package from the bats to the bathroom. The hostesses were wearing and people are probably like what the hell you talking about. Bats and the bathroom but I'm going to hand it over to you Kristin and let you tell people like what. What's the Arlo Gray? And Austin all about you know. So only gray is essentially kind of a reintroduction or of alum letter to myself from myself In a lot of ways because for so long after following up chef you know once I left Barbara I kind of out of the restaurant scene for. I don't know five years or so and it was never really my intention to ever jump back into it right away and I wanted to take my time I also had this mirrored like feeling of I if I open up a restaurant within like the first two years of top chef like will I be able to say myself or people just coming because it was TV. I just was like I was overthinking but also responsibly. Thinking about it I think in a lot of ways and then life just started happening. Where a restaurant at that time during these years just never fit into my life and I was okay with that. I always said no to restaurants until I got a phone call speed up eventually. Yes so I moved to Austin to open up our low gray in our little gray essentially was everything that I that I could muster within myself to get out into some physical form for someone to see or enjoy or to feel It was just that and so are low. Grade is what I would have made my first child. The bathrooms is a Korean Cinderella Story. That my mom would tell me Work is my personal original notebook. Pages are scribbling and the water glasses. I would sit in the middle of like an empty dining room which was so awesome daughter without tarps and construction and I would watch as the sun would come in and out and see how it looked in reflected into the dining room because we are right on the basis of what they call. I guess the back bridge So during five months out of the year these bats fly out and fly to Mexico and come back and it's just like this whole thing and people love stand on the bridge and we're fortunate to be in a location where we have Florida ceiling. Windows that you can enjoy that every night or if the sunsets people and probably like what the hell are you talking about for those? Who have never been to Austin and seeing this or seen pictures of this but literally as the sun is setting you've got dozens and dozens of people standing on the bridge and then this might freaks people out but it's not as scary as it sounds all at once like is it thousands. Kristen it is enormously freaky to think about. How many cermony bats? So they're not like these giant things and like you're saying they all at one time as the sun starts to go down. They all come from underneath the bridge and fly. I'm not good with North South East West but whatever I take out And they all south and if you're standing on the bridge watching it right in front of you. It looks like this black cloud. It's really fascinating so you can actually be sitting in the dining room and you're like why are all these people lining up and then all of a sudden it's like boom and it's pretty magical is pretty. It is when I first moved eight. You're going GonNa see the bats and has listen. I don't know what you guys are talking about. But this idea of watching bats does not excite me. I kind of took myself to bridge. I weighed any people. Are there staked out with like coolers in chairs for hours waiting for like to get the best fat and when I watched it it was. It was pretty spectacular. I will say must see it at least once in your lifetime to see overcome established how personal the whole spaces to you. Let's talk about the food because I know I know after you won top chef. There were a lot of stories or conversations about what is Kristen. Kish food you know what is what is what represents you culinary early and you did a cookbook before the Before Opening Arlo Grace. Who People got a glimpse at your food? And what was in the cookbook? Talk us through the menu that you developed for the restaurant. I will say my point. Culinary point of view has taken so many different identities and shapes in different things along the way but it was always such a hard question you know whether it was during top have in the middle or now to win someone would say hey will. What's your food and I'm like. Oh God that's such a hard thing. I'm like okay. Well it's rooted in French technique like many chefs But then I love making pasta so I guess like there's an Italian thing but then people would start to get confused right there in cyclope Italian bread sauce like and then your brain starts to go into this weird place and then I'm like I grew up in Michigan but I look but I am Korean when I look Korean so I you know I don't really know and so for a long time. I just had like this different answer very long winded answer every single time and eventually are low grey helping define what it was in at the end of the day. All it was was the story of my life. That's it so In in the biggest thing that I learned while creating our logo menu was as chefs in. Something I struggled with for a long time was trying to figure out whom I identity as a chef was like I want to be successful so I wanted to mimic those who found success or I always thought I had to be really fancy. Charter like recreate the wheel. Every single time I recruited a dish and all this stuff and I was drowning was failing miserably and I wasn't very happy for a long time and I guess the biggest thing I learned was quite frankly. The only person in the only way I'm going to stand out in this connor world is by giving something that isn't out there right now in the only thing. That really isn't out there right. Now is my version and my outlook of what my life looks like their food. And so with that revelation. That's all I kind of try to do. Now is at least every single dish. I can tell you where the point of inspiration was and how it got to where it is on the plate. That's amazing can you? Can you pick a few dishes and walk us through them? Yes so we have some obviously. The menu changes seasonally and You know as often as we want because we get bored very easily but the two long standing dishes that will always remain on our menu. is a muscle. Dini costs though. Which is the Little Ribbon Pasta That we make with Barton Springs Mills Flour from an extruder that we flew in from Italy And then all farm produce from local central Texas and so the monthly with the champion sauces. Just basically this mushroom sauce but when you think about it and it comes together. There's a lot more involved than just mushroom saucers dehydrating. And then rehydrating reimporting flavor and simmering and all this stuff but the core of the inspiration back dishes hamburger from my child. And so if we think about if we think about what food is and how it connects. People is. It's an introduction. It's a very very quick introduction through one bite of food and so I feel like it is responsibility of mine and it's something that I tend to gravitate towards to as a diner as well is finding some one little flavor one little something in there. That's like God that reminds me of whatever it might be and so for me it's hamburger helper. I've had people tell me that reminds them of their their grandma's beef stew or beef stroganoff or you know the Sunday roast whatever it might be and that's exciting for me so If you think about what hamburger helper is. It's like salty mommy. It's oddly balanced because it has processed sugar in there and it has like these egg noodles things that you had so take all those little descriptors and put it into a really beautiful pasta dish that we make some make from scratch. I have hamburger helper and it was an I totally believe you that that was the inspiration. Sean Hamburger Helper. Did Not come to mind. When I was eating that it is something that brings comfort so I guess maybe at the end of the day so long as it. Kind of feels comforting. That's all I really can ask for. Yeah it's something like obviously during pre shift and as we're telling our servers and our team what the food means comes from some servers. Choose to leave the hamburger helper out of their spiel And they're like chef. I can't sell Pasta when I say hamburger helper. I'm like listen. I get it but just say you know once. They say they love it. Tell them where it came from. And so it's become this probably one of the most popular dish on our menu and then we have a crispy rice which is my love. Crab Fried Rice from takeout. Of course Korean even and crowd roles with Bacon from New England and so I took those three things that should not ever go together and I smashed him into like this Sushi Rice cake that we see our in lots of clarified butter to mimic some of that butter on crowd role. And then we saw today and Haircut Vapors Bacon Crab and then we top saffron Italy and Salon. Show some fresh cucumbers and so it's like this crispy rice bowl of sorts. It was so good all right. Tell us one more in the inspiration One of the very first desserts that I love this recipe actually is in my cookbook. It's Oh my mom. When I was in elementary school would make my breakfast. Which would be whole wheat? Toast in the toaster. When as soon as it came out you put peanut butter on so it starts to melt and then cold maple syrup and a glass of milk was like this very standard breakfast. I made that into a whole wheat cake with just basically chocolate and peanut. Butter goshen whipped stuff and all this other stuff and then A milk ice cream. And I it's macy's so let's talk a little bit more about restaurants You Will. Let's start with our low grey. What's what's going on in our gray right now. So in your Arlo Gray. We decided to close our doors along with the hotel shortly after in March when all all while information was starting to come out in the safety became priority for our people and our guests and so we shutdown mid March Still closed as right now. However the hotel did a soft I guess low occupancy reopening so the hotel not houses are low. Great is currently serving guests as hotel with tall rooms and everything just said a smaller occupancy level And then right now there's a cocktail bar which I'm not associated with but that's because it's out so it's outside so they can entertain you know guests in whatever Nair with different kinds of rules and regulations and then there's a little takeout window on the corner restaurant that services the pool guess and then straight guests just kind of walking by on the bridge and then right now. We're kind of rainstorm. One it would look like to reopen and Somewhat interestingly sort of kind of the same way but nothing ever be the same of what it means to open a true diamond restaurant. Were hope for hopeful for the fall But again I think this experiment of just opening the hotel a few days ago will will be a big thing to kind of jump off from and learn a lot from all right. Let's transition and talk about top chef. As we mentioned at the top of the show. Kristen was one of the top chef winners. I'm sure you all know that and top chef is on right now. I didn't realize this but one of your best friends is competing. Yeah so Stephanie. Smart she is currently still on which is awesome. Yes Oh she's still on. I think top I think that what Five people left. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure but during the time like I was working and living in Austin while she was filming in so we would face time and I'd get to talk to her and kind of here's some here's some big stories of what was happening In touch base with her so probably people recognize Stephanie. Because this is I guess technically the second slash third time. She's been on so her and I both went onto the Seattle season. Fortunately I made it to the actual season. Unfortunately she wasn't able to get there But then she came back the next season New Orleans season and she came top six. I believe and now she's back in I think she's surpasses the stop six which is great. Well hopefully third time is a charm so you mentioned also your Boston routes You know you famously. Worked with Barbara Lynch who we all know and Love was one of the. She's got her restaurant Empire in Boston So there's a lot of Boston represented this time. You've got your pal. But then there's also Karen Kinda wits who we had on the show a few weeks ago. Yeah I mean I love Karen I I mean I followed her from. I guess the first time she was on. I'm not sure what season that was. But obviously I knew of her. And she worked with Joanne Chang at the time of when I got to know her she ran. Myers and Chang then. She opened up Fox in the knife. And just everything that she's done. I feel like has been such a different. I mean she went from Asia to Italian which is like wait a minute. I know you is Karen from Meyerson Jay and then she opens up this amazing Italian restaurant with like her heart and her soul and her passion all dumped into this amazing little neighborhood restaurant which I've had the pleasure reading at and it was just. It's been fun to kind of see where she's going and what she's doing and Supporting her from afar as well absolutely. We'll we'll find out soon who wins but wishing both of them a lot of good luck. Kristen before we let you go. I want to talk about the month of May which is about to end. But it's very interesting month because it's both Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. You know you've been very honest over the years about issues like addiction and other things and you know it's something that the restaurant industry hasn't paid enough attention to over the years that's definitely started to change. Thanks folks like Kat Kinsman. You know who started programs like chefs with issues and just opening up the conversation. This is a very challenging month for everybody so I just wanted to know if you had any Just any advice for anyone who's dealing with issues of their own. Maybe just advice on how you of dealt with things over the years. Yeah you know. It's definitely taken so many different shapes you know for most of my life. I didn't know how to deal with it because I refused to talk about it. And I refused to admit that I felt anything less than perfect And so the first step obviously is talking about it which thankfully like you're saying the programs that are starting to kind of show up for people the ones that are saying you know. Listen let's all get together. And let's talk about it or let's not get together but listen to this places here because people are talking about an almost normalizing normalizing something that we have. We all carry in some ways within ourselves is these challenges and struggles that go on and kind of like the the voices in your head that tell you you're not good enough or You don't deserve something or you know the only way to be successful as to work your ass off in basically dig yourself in early grave like these things that were just so ingrained in us for so long. It's now time to decide one. We have to squash and the only way to squash is by saying less than we all and you know. I think a lot of people always say like you're not alone which is one hundred percent shoe and I think I think for me. That was always something that I found comfort in discomfort in comfort in is knowing that I wasn't alone and sometimes isolate. Isolation is truly one of the things that can trigger and challenge us in so many different ways and so whether it be from afar or friend You know admitting the same thing or just having a conversation about it like it's not a bad thing like I think that's the first step right and so there are so many different platforms so many different people that are willing to talk about it And get real down and dirty vulnerable with themselves And about themselves to other people which I think is very very important. It's the biggest. It's the biggest thing that we have is each other right And you know I think especially during I know that when I go back to working normally I guess I will not live the same way that I used to. I've learned incredible amount of time just by being still and you know I think a lot of people have also said like they've kind of gone back and forth about trying to be like. Okay how am I gonNA use this time wisely right like how am I going to figure out what the next best thing is in my life and all this stuff and I think it's responsible think about in use your time wisely hundred percent but quite frankly there are days when I sit and I shut off everything and I don't want to talk to anybody and I don't actually do anything productive? Meanwhile it's probably the most productive thing that I can do for myself and so I think Allowing yourself and giving your permission giving yourself permission to just not be busy is is something that we're all learning is a really good thing. All right and last question. Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Nancy Pappas whose are designed director felt very passionate. She like you as a korean-american she's an adoptee. Also and she was. She felt very strongly about celebrating it. And having bomb celebrate celebrated and and all the different people in the community and all their achievements. You know cookbooks products restaurants. You name it. So what are your thoughts on on setting aside a month to acknowledge the community? I mean there's so many months that are designated for certain people Certain groups of people in different communities. And I think it's I think it's wonderful. I think a lot. I think they're some people will be like. Oh well we should be doing this every month but you know every every person deserves every month of the year and all that stuff but the reality is is that the focus. The attention doesn't ever happen until you say this is the month right and so at least when you say this month it can. At least kind of trickle out in out and make it so there is a possibility that everyone is celebrated every day of the year. And so I mean I've done a lot of stuff like whether it be speaking During these times or Partnered with macy's years ago and I kind of traveled around and we just kind of talked about what it meant to be Asian American And I feel like one. It's very freeing thing for me is therapeutic for me because it's something. I never really truly knew how to identify with and I think so for me I look at it in a different way Then maybe some and for me. It's it is a moment for me to just say. Hey new celebrate you for a second because you also have remember you are part of this community And that's a hard thing to admit to say that I'd never felt like I was But it's also it's it's a swift kick in the behind for me to be like okay. Chris and Mike Re Remind yourself of who you are and where you come from. And what makes you and so I'm grateful for the month and it's teaching me how to Recognize those people around me. You know one of the most remarkable things for me about the program that the Cherry bomb team put together is how many young women are are kind of reclaiming their Asian heritage and putting their own spin on these On food products. It's really incredible. I had no idea how many were out there. And how many brand new brands have launched including some during the pandemic. I saw on your on your incident. Cherry bombs instagram that Newness ice cream run by a woman named Hannah is I mean dot com. I one because of ice cream into that. I don't know the right way to say this but it puts a literal smile on my face. When I see these people that looked like me behind these things right because like saying I never saw myself as Asian And it was Asian Community. That reminded me that I am Asian and I can be part of this community so Being ABLE TO SUPPORT COMPANIES RUN BY ASIAN. Americans is a really proud thing for me. That's it for today.

A man that stood for integrity he stood for truth, and he was on the FRY on the frontlines fighting for civil rights, not only foot blacks before all some of the things that now civil rights legislation stands on the shoulders of and one thing. that. was really brought me to tears is he wrote an op Ed column before he died and it was Published in The New York Times and he basically Read, his own epitaph and he basically said that you know I may not be here but we have to carry on the struggle for voting rights, civil rights for rights for all because the struggle continues and he said it gave him great joy to see black lives matter still doing some of the same things that he did as a young twenty year old. When he was marching with Dr King who was his mentor? So we celebrate the legacy of Mr John. Lewis? He is the last of the great civil rights leaders have left us now. And a lot of them they're they're gone. You know but we celebrate we treasure his memory. He was given full honours like he was a shoulder because he was he was a soldier. On frontline is for people.

Now is. The. Organism living this over metal. Dustin welcome to the show. Thank you really happy to be here. You are one of my favorite madman. I've been following ever since we first met at pioneer works and was blown away by your art blown away by your storytelling. I remember this family going with my crazy Bulgarian assistant slash director of editorial with you on a little tour of your studio and it seemed like your life story was. Just, the most incredible eclectic mix of things and I thought we would start and we're going to go down all sorts of roads but let's start with. You dropping out of high school and my understanding is that you end up hitchhiking around New Zealand and I was curious how that came to be well, actually don't remember I was in Colorado at dropped out of high school I I I for some reason couldn't connect. To the system of education and I just wanted out. So I tried to persevere and then I left and I turned eighteen. And I had a bet with my ma wear if I didn't do any drugs or alcohol or smoke cigarettes or anything until I was eighteen, I would win this bat and. Who's going to give me a car basically but when I was sixteen canceled? Swatch watches actually amid some money on my own about my own car. So when I turned eighteen I said Look I won the bat but. I really have a car that I paid for with my money. So you you're going to have to give me some cash which I then spent on drugs sex and rock and roll and just went bananas. Copious amount you're listening agenda very at eighteen, which is good because a lot of these kids. Don't know what they're doing and their twelve. So so it was cool and and then I just decided to get out of Colorado. Kind of picked him up and went to New Zealand and just started hitchhiking and through. Australia. Hitchhiking as well and I hadn't been very cultured as a kid and so I was like a late bloomer at eighteen here. I am on LSD for the first time listening to led Zeppelin and pink floyd and having my own sort of woodstock in my my mind as hitchhiking through these countries and it was pretty crazy and getting exposed all this weird stuff through people men on the road, and then I ended up in Thailand on an island in lots of mushrooms they put him in your omelettes and I was like. Paradise out never leave. Why would I ever go back to what I knew before I'm just GonNa live on this island and then that kind of at some point scared me because I was like Whoa I'm so detached from what I once knew, and then I went back to Colorado and met that crazy physicists them. So we we're we're. We're going to get to the crazy physicist I want to leave that just as a cliffhanger for folks for second let's go back to the swatch watches for a minute. Doing homework for this it seems like You had the hustle from a very. Young Age and I read that you use to Bosc as a break dancer I duNNo. If it was on the Venice Boardwalk or somewhere. But as a little kid, you'd take this boombox out. and. Flash Ford your I mean, honestly, your bio is just. hilariously fascinating and almost unbelievable to me at some point later, thirty years later you end up somehow break dancing in Jay z's two, thousand, Thirteen Picasso, baby video, I it's hard for me to even connect these. But where does the hustle come from the entrepreneurial hustle than I think has served you well in a whole lot of different areas. You Know I. Don't know where it comes from I think perhaps it was always there I have no idea I guess it's in my DNA. Do Your parents or any siblings have similar programming that type of entrepreneurial? Yeah. I think make something from nothing both my parents have a bit of that and I've had it. I guess I mean and and you know my Mom Left My. When I was five and took me to tyrod Colorado, and she's a single mom at that point always on the road working and hustling herself. So I kind of raised myself since I was five, it feels like and. So, there was a lot of just having to figure it out. Whatever be I think. Was Your Mom's supportive of your various home schemes, but the various money making operations from seems like a really early age. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. My mom was always very supportive. She was very not around I think in in my youth, but also very supportive of my. Whatever it may be. You know I think everyone got a little bit more nervous when I Kind of dropped out of high school, and then when I turned eighteen and got pretty pretty wild in. And then of course I think my father was completely horrified and my mother was just praying would get through it. So let's segue back to physicists. How do you meet this physicist? And who is this person? You know. Is. Very. Unusual circumstances I returned from Thailand to Colorado and. This woman that I was very fond of an dated. introduced me. To. Or she started telling me about this physicist in that he was Brilliant and that he was working on environmental sciences and the damage from the Gulf War and was trying to make free energy like Nicola Tesla, and of course, I didn't know who, Nikola Tesla was the time I'm now learning who that is and and that he worked with Buckminster Fuller earn I didn't know that wasn't learning about bucky fuller and so again, getting introduced to all this new stuff and I told her I wanted to meet him and I met him and. He was maybe the first adult. To Turn Me Onto Cultural lighthouses like Pablo Neruda or does staff ski or you know. Tesla. Things and reading music and kind of teaching me and I was obsessed so I asked him if I could. Study with him and he Kinda tried to discourage me not to. Because he said that that would be dangerous because the government you know was watching him because he was trying to make free energy. So he was he was really really out there and also really really brilliant and that made me really really interested to learn from him. He finally accepted me. To learn from and we would have just conversations and do mushrooms and LSD together and just have these long conversations and then he basically he was like putting me into a closet on saline solution bed with a quartz crystal on my chest listening to Wales and he was like look we're. GonNa wipe killed you. You're GONNA think your. Dad. You'RE GONNA think I'm pathological murderer and that I've killed you don't you worry it'll pass and he would inject me with Ketamine. And This is straight up altered states. Is a great movie and kind of got messed up the second half because it got sort of obsessed with primordial regression opposed progression but William hurt did a great job in that picture And that was I guess loosely based on John Lilly's life and John. John Scientists that I was working with and and I'm having like. So I'm having these crazy out of body experiences where I'm leaving my body. in this. Sort of. Pure consciousness state and I'm becoming one cell in my arm, and then I'm one star and then I'm I'm you know FRAC allies into billions of little pieces? Re -combobulate more I would do it. I could navigate through what I guess I perceived to be consciousness and I had all these crazy visions which I felt like kind of. Is. What. Sent me. To New York. How so how did they send you to New York? Well, look you know this like blew my mind because I'm making these crazy paintings I'm making art constantly at this point when did that start sorry to interrupt but when did the artwork start? Weird. Shit, but I never really thought about it anything. You know I would make little drawings had make things out of rocks and sticks and things. I've found in the in the forest, which I I have been doing all week this week. So nothing's really changed in in a long time. So I guess I was always doing that. But by the time I was seventeen or so was like this is what I'm GonNa do I'm GonNa make art and I didn't really know about art history. Yet I mean I might have known who Andy Warhol as or Kosovo Matisse by really. And but art felt like the greatest freedom because it felt like something you could it was completely free. You could invent whatever and you're never limited to the new advantage as you could go and invent something else, and then after I met the physicist I became obsessed with the sciences because I was like Holy Shit. This whole world is a hallucination everything's been invented. Therefore, we can just build some crazy utopic vision of what we think. It should look like on this planet, and so the arts, the art became almost like the voice and the science. became like the tactic or something I don't know I think so I mean, are you saying the art was sort of the inspiration of the Muse and the science was the sort of means by which you expressed whatever had been kind of into it'd or received by Zaba you mean yea. Obsessed with clean energy in like the sixties even though we were in the nineties, I was getting obsessed with Nikola Tesla and I was getting obsessed with this idea of of that we could make clean and free energy, and therefore I felt like the art was almost the bonfire. You know what you could get people around and if you could get everybody around a fire, then you could start to build these more complex systems which could be scaling clean energy or you know. Various. New. Forms of. Political System. Now, you you said that some of the visions are experiences when you're in these saline baths, right so people can imagine if you float in the Dead Sea because of the the high salt content, let's like half your body's suspended I wasn't actually in the baths like John Lilly I was on a sailing solution bad in a dark room. Oh, I see that's a lot safer. Okay. Feeling but a lot safer precisely. Yes. Now. During those experience you said some of what was imparted or experienced lead you to New York how is that? I think I was feeding if you will these enormous delusions of grandeur where I'm like everything is possible. Do you know what I mean like I could do any? And I'm in a small town in Colorado and I'm obsessed now you know I'm like I'm going to make art and I'm GonNa that's what's going to be. My name is making things out of nothing, and so I basically reduce the idea that the only way to do that was to go to new. York, city. At Artis worth felt like. That's what people were because I was in a small firm and the kids were like drinking beer on the mountainside talking about hockey and I was like I need to get the fuck out here. And how did you then find your way or fund your way both I guess at that time to New York how are you making ends meet I went there without really knowing anyone or anything and found a And my mom was very generous and she said look help you with. A very cheap roof over your head. And then you need to figure it out. So I went there and found like I basically rented I think it was like craigslist or or the village voice I found a room. It was more like a closet from some dude in Soho and I lived in this little tiny room and he was very generous and gave me another room to make paintings in. And again I was young and wild and. I was just making these crazy abex i. don't even know what Abex. Probably wise time but looking back I was making these weird abex paintings and renting this little closet room from the sky and out every night. Like a wild man and somehow. Talk my way into these. Bars and places at the time. It was a place called the bowery bar and the place called spy. I I was very lucky because I met all these amazing people. Right off the boat. So to speak that a lot of them are so in my life today. So yeah, I don't know how that happened I just I met people right away. We'll see I mean it sounds like you went to the action and then you sort of entered yourself as one of the lottery balls in that spinning container of thousand other lottery balls and bumped into a lot which would be viewed as serendipity but you kinda engineered it by going to the center of of the action what year roughly deer call when you got to New York? Ninety four, I think. Ninety four. All right. And when did you I feel like and maybe felt this all along. But from the standpoint of keeping you afloat financially, when was the first inkling that you felt art could do that for you? Well in mine mind coming to New York I thought Oh of course, it would be so easy once I got to New York that wasn't the case and talk about Hustle I mean I'd be like by this painting for me two thousand and two thousand dollars by the painting thousand dollars. Thousand Dollars. Or five hundred bucks buy that painting. I get to eat some food come on you know I was paid and then and then that'd be like. If someone didn't want the painting I'd be like, just take it. Like just take it because I thought to myself. Well, if they take it and they hang on their wall and twenty people, see it in nineteen of them can't not standard but one person likes it and asks about it maybe then maybe it would become a play. Did you say a plague. because. It's like a praying. It's like a disease. If I can get. Very one person if we put something in a room and fifty people don't like it. But the fifty first person loves it and wants one and they get it and then they do the same thing in the next fifty people don't like it. But one person sees may get one over a lot of time that can really you know gets you going and that's what I would do. I would just hustle I was wild doing fucking. What do you call Mike cartwheels somersaults through the bar and I had long hair and beards and beads and Mike. you know what I mean I. was I was out there meeting people who were also teaching me like that's why I got. My education really was from the people I was meeting. How many pieces of artwork would you guess you gave away for free or close to free dozens hundreds a handful I don't know a multiple dozens. Yeah I don't know fifty hundred. Who knows I mean? Some of that stuff will like appear nowadays someone will call me out of the blue be like I have this painting from ninety five on Mike can you fucking burnt? Good on them for hold onto it. So. Ninety four ninety five I've thought about actually this is from a conversation. I had with a friend named Graham Donovan. He was on this podcast. He talked about swimming in this metaphorical river and on one hand you have kind of hyper Ridge. On one shore one side of this hyper rigidity OCD etcetera on the other side you have chaos and. SERENDIPITY and psychosis right? You have either these two extremes and you can swim down the middle. You can swim either side and sometimes people get like lodged on one of those shores. This is leading to to a question about. I don't know if this question's GonNa make any sense but. Who Was Zelda in? Why did you have to rescue her? Does this question make any sense if not I can. So I was obsessed F Scott Fitzgerald, and then of course, Zelda Fitzgerald. And yet, and and so for some reason I, I was having. Call a mild psychotic break and I had this moment where. I thought that. Everyone knew each other. That everyone was almost playing a joke on each other that they didn't know each other almost this idea of the seven daughters of eve where we all came from the same mother. But now there's billions of us. And then I thought everyone was pretending not to know. So I would walk by a restaurant and I would wave at everybody thinking like, Hey, everybody. And they look at me weird and. It was very weird and I was adding up things so like if I saw you tim be like Tim. Teague was twenty. I is whatever it is amas thirteen and add up your name and I thought there was this miracle meaning and and I I was filming all this because I had traded a drawing for a little handicapped I. think that's what they're called the cameras filming everything by myself just whatever I was doing and I had this moment where. I was writing all over my paintings. I thought everybody knew each other and I went onto a boat. There's a great. Have you seen the video the crackup? I haven't seen the video I just read about it. There's this video where accidentally filmed a psychotic break and go onto the Forbes boat and I'm like this is my boat. And the guys like what are you talking about like this open And I kind of like visit my world and he was like. What are you talking about? Are you? Related to the Forbes family and I was like, yes, directly F.. B. E. ask any kind of. Listened for a little while and he gave me a tour of the boat until he phillies I'm I was bananas and then he kicked me off the boat. And then I this was a night on Chelsea Piers I walked over to the Chelsea piers were golf range where they hit the balls you know and I literally just in the nighttime by myself filming. Walked onto the field. And started kicking the golf balls. And walked up to the guy driving the vehicle used to pick up the balls and I said to him and I used the wrong. Words because I said I need to reprimand your vehicle. Your requisition. Or Guy has like crazy you to understand I'm having a party on this field. And I need this vehicle and so jump on the back, and so he literally held the camera jumped in back onto the balls and I started driving I tried to drive the vehicle up into the outside of this area, and of course, he grabbed the keys and brought out the managers and I tried to convince them they weren't having it, and so I laughed and then the very next morning I went into Central Park. Under. The same idea that everyone knew each other and I I never forgot I talking to everyone is if they were family and I started talking to this guy and having a long conversation in the park, and then my if serves me right he tried to kiss me and that freaked me out and I ran. Running through the park and I go to Belvedere Castle I don't even know if I knew what Belvedere castle was but I go to the castle in the park and I climbed and I scaled the Castle And the police came. and. Got Me down from the castle and they were so nice. They were like, what are you doing up there and for fifteen minutes? The police were really nice. They were like. Trying to and I was like I'm I've got I'm looking for love and they were trying to understand what love was like a half I was demanding that they opened up this castle because they were classrooms in there to let the kids use the frogs and the dinosaurs and the microscopes and the the police and I had very nice fifteen minute conversation where they were really trying to understand my motivations and finally after fifteen minutes they were like you're under arrest they threw me on the ground I peed in my pants they took my book which was F, Scott Fitzgerald's. The crackup, which was like A. Book from Nineteen forty-five published on new directions of essays. Edmund Wilson has edited together and they took my book they put me in Central Park Prison I'll never forget they took my shoelaces than the ambulance came took me to a hospital my my two best friends who are both no longer with us came to try to get us out, get me out and I wouldn't leave the hospital 'cause I was in this weird meredith that this is what are supposed to be and my friends are. Going I'm like no, and literally there are you with my best friends and they were like get out let's go and then for some reason, I wouldn't leave. Then another ambulance took me to a full lockdown I'm writing all over the walls like my numeric codes, and finally you know it's like the whole thing in the movies with the glass and the little pill cops finally is like okay I'm ready to leave. and. Not, leave. As. Well you're like, no, and my parents who had not been on an airplane together. In I. Don't know how long got to get flu from the West Coast and they got me out. So. All right. So amazing is definitely one one word there there many descriptors. Video the crackup, and then it makes sense. Well. I'll check out the video to those listening I suppose a few. At. least would think to themselves. Holy fucking God. That is terrifying. To questions you number one is. WAS THAT Out of left field psychotic break was it precipitated by something. So that's number one and number two is have you ever gone so far to the shore of chaos in psychosis that you've scared yourself? good question I. Don't know what was the. Cause of this I think anyone could there's a long time ago. So one could to a surplus of hallucinogens one could. Digest say like Oh wow. I was having such a like life was so good. It was a dream and I got so mashed into the dream that the dream sort of interconnected us all and even at the time I, don't think it scared me because I was I. thought it was real and since then. I mean sure I've probably scared myself a few times but not so bad. It's good to shake it up. What will you save never been worried about losing your tether to this reality and really just ending up in a psych ward for years or decades you've never had that concern? No. Why is that? No idea. I just I just never I was never there. You know how people are manic depressive is something that one could be. One day that I'm just manic.

I, recall during this first tour of your studio whereas marveling at your work, which which people have to look up and certainly visit your instagram account, which is just at Dustin Yellen but. There's a family or a mom and dad, and their son and I. Ended up we're all standing in a circle at one point. And you're telling this story that completely captivated mesmerized I wanna say this twelve year old boy and the parents were just not sure to make of it and I thought the whole thing was hilarious because you're telling the story about I want to say LSD swimming from one place to another or I can't recall exactly. But does that ring any bells all something involving swimming illusions? Let me, think. I. If not it's okay. It's probably one of one hundred stories I remember more the audience reaction and the facial expressions more than anything else. I don't know I mean I. Definitely I've come close to death swimming wants to a bird sanctuary. Bird Sanctuary, and then I also in that book us in Panama I was spearfishing for. Hamlets. And we were on a beach with a few scientists and I got swept away. That was told not to swim I should have listened but I don't think I was on any hallucinogens either time so I don't recall almost drowning because of hallucinogens but I have definitely almost drowned. That's perfectly good as a way of. Getting to the question, which is, how did you develop your? Abilities as a storyteller or maybe a better question is 'cause that's always a tricky one. What makes a good storyteller right I know you you seem to be a fan of Werner Herzog. There are certainly others but in you're good storyteller in your mind, what makes a good storyteller and are there any people who stick out Israeli storytellers are well, there's so many I wouldn't even know where to start verners. Amazing Storyteller. F Scott Fitzgerald Murakami Ellen even know where to start with storytellers. There's so many but I think perhaps. Being curious is a great place to start and. Trying, to be fareless as another place where you just want to. Inject the entire civilization into your neural networks as fast as possible all the time. So whenever you are conscious. There's more than you could possibly input I mean even right now while I'm speaking to you, I'm looking at a mountain I'm looking at hundreds probably thousands of trees I know that there's a river. about one hundred yards in front of me valley even though I can't see it I've been on that river every day looking for rocks. There's just so you know the infinite detail in our existence is so vast that if you can be aware of it and process it than somehow you might be able to describe it, and then that could become a captivating story and if you put your self in those places, often it becomes a great medium I. Guess. So I'm constantly throwing myself into the depths of the Amazon or Papua New Guinea Africa, all kinds of weird places always like I'm kind of a bit of an explorer and then the things you see things you experience. You describe and I think that people are like planets as well. So you could say the same thing for a person, right all of their experiences that you could. Describe if you, think about. Anybody musician, writers data scientist. Progression. Kind of secondary if what you say answers, the question I think if it's important, I'll I'll come back to it. It's more of a prompt when I say I'm just kind of like a buzz light year pulled all. Let's try to keep things moving in certain directions or any direction, but the observation that you made about the detail of reality makes me think of Aldous Huxley in doors of perception talking about the mind as a reducing valve right it in so much as were optimized to fight fornicated kate flea basically. And that on some level, you could imagine hallucinogens. Allowing dropping or widening the aperture of your reducing valve so that you're you're seeing a lot of what is. That's literally just said what I always say I even said it to. To someone yesterday I say almost every seventy two hours, which is if I'm speaking about hallucinogens I say exactly that it's literally imagine your aperture is opening up and therefore more light. More color more sound is coming in. Have you found anything outside of hallucinogens to help you to wine the aperture so that you can I mean when I'm drawing. People have been trying to get meditate and I. Think I've done it but not in a traditional sense and a lot of folks would say meditation we'll take you very much to the same place nature I. Mean just you know I've been out here hiking every day in the river. I think being conscious for take the hallucinogens completely but somehow just being conscious of of where you are in the world and what you are in the world and the complete. Comprehensible mysticism that is inherent in the very. Fact that you can experience or be conscious of any experience is the same as. Potentially. In taking. For those folks listening and I I wondered this to her saying to themselves. This guy's fascinating. His stories are incredible and I've no idea whatsoever how he's not self-destructed like how he has managed his life had it managed in such a way that has become. A super successful. Artists will you say to them? Is it just a miracle that you've had like you've kind of rolled snake is a thousand times or is there more to it well. I think. I don't know is what I would say I would say, yes, I've been extraordinarily lucky. Lucky. Lucky every day I'm like just don't die this shit so good. Don't die. Don't die motherfucker get one more day in their ob. I've been very lucky and I'm very grateful for that I. Think I'm also very cautious I'm not doing lots of hard drugs I'm not. You know as I've gotten older, I'm slower to jump in a crazy wild ocean. If I don't know that I could actually swim in it or into a river. If I think that it's GonNa take me down So I've been very lucky but I also think Yeah I think you can dive into the infinite complexity of our. Existence and not do that by not just rolling snake eyes every time but by just being open and. which is I think the gray for how people learn is by just being curious. I totally agree and I'm going to dig a little bit more while I'm going to dig a lot more just because part of what I try to do in these conversations to tease out the. Some people don't like this term but like the superpowers, our idiosyncrasies that allow people to break the normal modes of society and achieve unusual things right which you have done demonstrably objectively, you have done that one thing that came up as I was reading were quotes describing his anti-competitive. And I'm wondering if if maybe that's gingerbread trill worth following and thinking about and looking at this quote from Vanity Fair piece from two thousand fifteen and this comes up a few times elsewhere also, but it mentions a friend of yours is at Tom Rice I. Don't if I'm pronouncing that correctly but pounds prize winning or may either yeah you gotta meet. I'd love to meet him and he and his quote Dustin loves everyone else's creative egos. He's learned the magic formula, which is that if you're competing with other creative people are just depleting your energy and destroying yourself. That's really interesting. Can you comment on that? I don't know if it's accurate if you consider it accurate but can you speak to that? Well Sure I mean I'm. I think that the that the species is pretty incredible and I just the way I'm. Inspired by nature constantly, I'm inspired by people people are part of nature and so when I fall in love with. Tom's books a example and Tom as a great example but you know you could go down the list line of incredible souls making amazing. Drawings and paintings and movies, and records and math problems. All of it. All of that stuff to me is is fucking amazing. Incredible. Magnetic. Material that can help propel you through the world so I just wanted to get turned on more and more and more to all the cool potential that can be unleashed by. Certain combinations of. I don't know if it's neural activity or if it's you know Meta fucking. Klaus. Yeah what form if it's the right term does anti competitiveness take like what does that look like to be anti-competitive in the art world or are we could embrace and love your community? And to help your community, realize their dreams, not just your dreams. And if you can make your dreams part of. Dreaming that how do we help realize everybody's dreams together in some collective orgy of dreams Now is that driven by optimism and idealism is it driven in part by just finding that a better way to increase your energy as opposed, deplete it what led you to that are. In Great. Specific. schism that that led me there. You know accept that sort of. Corny silly idea that there's like love and fear like we can all love each other. We can all fear each other and it seems so simple like we can. Come together and say look we're going to figure out how to be stewards to this planet together and create great clean technologies in great responsible ways for eight or ten billion people to live together or we could you know create conflict and. Guess Competition and territorialism in and I feel like the idea of a country, which is kind of arbitrary new and religions and sort of different ways in which we. DRAW LINES AROUND FOUGHT AND Can maybe create ceilings for us so But for me, it's a very much a I. I would guess Natural Natural State that we should just all love each other and build the world that we want to inhabit because the entire thing is just. Malleable and. Sculptural. Add you know? I've another quote that I love to. fact, check see if it's accurate first of all but. Just to hear you explain it if it makes any sense because it stuck out for me in that is from a New York Times piece. And the quotas I don't worry about inspiration as much as system overload. I don't know if you remember saying that if you did. But what does that mean? I feel that every day Tim. Feel it every fucking day I. Feel the Red and I'll give you an example. I'm making sculptures right now out of rocks I love rocks and I go up the valley and I go onto a river where I guess probably millions of little rocks and as I'm looking for the rocks. In the hot sun with my head. Gaze down at the ground. I say to myself. Holy Fuck. There are so many rocks. How could I possibly? See them all at the same time. And then distinguish which ones will fit together in order to make something out of them and I could say the same thing about people or places or pretty much anything that there's so much if I said to you, I'm just going to read poetry. Shit I'm just GONNA. Re Japanese poets for the rest of my life that in itself. Would I spend one hundred years doing just just? French films are just you know? Learning about specific plance. There so much to learn and to be exposed to and to remember if which which I have very hard time doing that constantly I'm in system overload and. So, when someone I I always get that question. Well, what inspires you you know? Cool. What pain or what am I fuck man I'm inspired by by everything I'm inspired by being conscious right now the fact that we can have this conversation that's a fucking miracle and really it is and then. So. But if you play that out and you like are kind of trying to till the soil to be aware or as we said earlier, open apertures and the more and more you open your apertures, the more and more you possibly may be perceive and Huxley's a great example an amazing amazing brain then. How do you mitigate system overload? And so where my challenge is I think is that I'm? Always trying to widen that aperture, and then at the same time like I should have some kids wouldn't it be nice to like do things that happened in the world that may be require a little closing of the aperture or something or something to focus because it feels like. Just, this endless infinite awesome. See of possibility that is always wear you are what have you found? To help if anything was system overload because for you as someone who feels the world deeply and who willingly wants to widen and maintain the with of your aperture this is just an ongoing in a sense again, onslaught of input. So. What do you do? What are what are some of the things that you've found to be helpful for preventing complete overwhelm I liked to draw and I like to be in the middle of nowhere and I like to smoke marijuana. Like I like to. Those three things like a lot love to make love. There's a lot of things I think that can help on to Yeah I can somebody got me to meditate on a lake this week. That was pretty cool. swimming can be good. I, guess Oh. Yeah watching. Things like lack watch a movie and it puts, me. In a world. which then makes it. So that I'm kind of living that world while watching it and therefore I'm not thinking about the ten zillion other possible things that could be watching you seem to have. Watched a lot of film do you have any favorite films for people who don't know anything about film Dustin please guide me through the light or the darkness or however you WanNa do it please key makes recommendations? Do you have any any films that come to mind that are films? You've recommended a ladder watched over and over again? Yeah, I often recommend a movie called. Fitz corralled. By Vendor Herzog. I highly recommend that and many of Venice movies There's a great movie that's really funny I. Don't know if you've seen this movie Tim called bad boy bubby. No. I've not like the title though arm Stralia Movie Nineteen ninety-three the I believe bad boy bubby that's a cool movie. Another movie called the color of pomegranates. I can never say his name Parmesan off. He's an Armenian director. I. Love how Ashby's being there he also made Herald Ma. I mean cheeses, movies. There's you know clutch brawls a great French director Obviously. Kubrick watch all of Kubrick's movies. Tarkovsky is movies. And Taku Ski wrote a great book about filmmaking sculpting in time. Yes, time. Let's grab one of them see mentioned fifths, Corrado? I Why do you recommend that movie to people? What is it about it? Not only that movie but the there's a great documentary about the making of the movie called burden of dreams, burden of dreams. By Les Blank, but it fits corral I mean it just this ultimate metaphor of this woman who wants to bring. The opera into the depths of the Amazon and the sort of trials and tribulations of what that means, and in the course of the film they to get out of the jungle, they have to carry a boat over a mountain. Which I think is just a great metaphor for what it's like to be alive. Well, it sounds also a lot like. Building Pioneer. Works. Can you can you just describe how did pioneer work for people who don't have any idea? No visual in their minds of what pioneer works is maybe you could just tell describe what it is and then describe what it was because I, I've visited in person. And it's spectacular. But that is not how things began. Can you describe it for people what it is now or what it is now and then rewind and talk about what you can do neither what it was and what it is now or what is now and what it was however, you want to approach it. I mean I think it was just a hallucination in dreams and its genesis I think is no. Is No I. Don't think it was like this. Idea that I think every kid in every art school probably had similar sentiments of like why isn't there a place where I can go where there's writers and scientists and artists, musicians and filmmakers all together in a building sharing ideas thinking together and dreaming together like why wasn't an I again didn't go to school I didn't go to college and so maybe subliminally or sublimely or somehow this was a way for me to incarnate what I wished to be. Wish to experience at some point. But but I didn't I never said why isn't that a place which is everybody's together trying to think about how we build this world together. So it started very much is is A. Is just an obvious question. I. Guess why? Why does this exist and? When I was younger know I started having you know roommates have a loft with lots of people playing music and reading poetry and kind of together and I. Sort of had these primitive versions of this naturally. But I guess so so what is pioneer works? Now it's it's an institute with a mission and I don't know if institutes were but its mission is to build community through the arts and sciences to create an open and inspired world. So what does that mean I mean it's basically like how do we use arts and sciences to bring people together to build the world they WANNA live in and Now. It's somewhere between school and the learning center in a museum in Community Center. And I don't know what it's it's. It's a social experiment that I think could end up being a great model as a learning center and I don't like to use the word school because it feels like it puts you in something that. Is Old and not necessarily functioning in its current state. So so I'd say it's a learning center, a cultural center when I say culture I have to Circle Sciences because a lot of folks don't think about scientists part of culture how large is it? My subjective experience was feeling that it was vast when I walked through and walk through again and then had two glasses of wine and walk through again. How big is this space? So, funny because when I got the building, it was An iron works built at the end of the civil war. And I had the bag everybody around me. I couldn't afford the building and I was begging everyone in collectors were like look here's half a million dollars. You know get the building we'll take the art later. Just I was begging everybody almost it almost didn't happen and when I first went in the building I, was like this thing is giant like you're saying and it's about twenty seven, thousand square feet inside in about twenty thousand square feet outside of its current footprint were were. We're going to be adding some things and it felt massive now it feels absolutely tiny. Now I walk in like fuck we have no room we need five more classrooms we need to. Triple. The size of the Tech Department, the science area needs to be twice the size you know we we need to build according studios we have a tiny recording studio, but it's not big enough. We need. You know we need a place for democracy equality a program, which is going to require ten people, Narrative Arts program which you know. So every right, it's, it's a yes it it doesn't. You know we we do about seventy five residencies a year where we're giving space for free to scientists and artists and writers, etc.. So we need more more place for the residents so. It feels tiny little. Let's go back to is I've read you describe it the original Shithole. No windows no flowers no stairs no utilities. And you're trying to gather millions of dollars. That's a hard pitch it would seem and so what worked what got the money? What was what was the pitch? What what? Was I know that you can persevere and Bang you're heading into with a with a shitty pitch and it will not work, but it did work. So what happened and why did it work? Well, I would say a few different things you know in the beginning I was or for very long time even in the beginning I was I was just giving away on my money. So if I sold a sculpture. And I would beg the I'll be like you wanna buy a piece of art you disgusting capitalist pig I'm not selling you any art help us do this thing people don't need objects people that I am. How close how close to? Verbatim. was I mean, would you actually It was at the sentiment or would you actually say that and just endear yourself because you you`re Not say it but sweetly in. Somewhat. On. and. I believe that I was like look if you could buy a piece of art from me for a couple of hundred thousand dollars well, then you can help us with this bigger dream, which is not about me or my art but about a lot of people and and so for years I did that I if someone wanted to buy my art, I'd be like look I'm glad you liked this art but look at this crazy project were building and I gave away everything I mean I almost Bankrupted my art studio every few months because I was just keeping it going barely and then you know. Water heaters stairs. Floors Bruce Repair, whatever it took to get the building inhabitable. So that was like the first stage was just like we this building safe and I thought that a decade. Let me pause for one second see said giving stuff away so that you have on one hand, the well-funded capitalist pigs as he put it, I guess you. Could. Just. fucking around fucking the. Very, wealthy. I mean the class, right like merchant aristocracy. Then you have everybody else who are you giving your art way to during that period of time? Why are you giving it away? No. No I'm not. I'm selling the art. To people but like let's say a collector in the studio and this happened. You're giving you mean the procedure. Back, to pioneer. cleese by the sculpture because we will get water heaters. Yep I see I. If piece of art and we might get some windows. Got I in the beginning that helped jumpstart the project. and. Then you know somebody was like you need to start a nonprofit. I. Didn't know what that was and a board of director you know and and I would say at its very best what pioneer works is now and maybe always was and Welby is isn't amalgam of souls it's a group of people it's like. Gabriel, the artistic director, who's WHO's you know like my brother and Janna Levin who who I know you know who's like my sister and? Family and like all these incredible people who you know what I used to say and I used to think of it and I still do is is pioneer was just a table. It's just a table and it's like whoever's at the fucking table is making it work I like that. Let's really a beautiful metaphor in visual. How do you? In maybe the somebody else does it I have no idea but you strike strike you are a manic. Artist and you love making art how do you balance that with the managerial? Responsibilities does it drive you fucking nuts to do that kind of stuff or is there some way you think about it? How do you integrate that? If you do well, I would say that A couple of different ways. One I'm I in the last decade has been really challenging to do both but I try not to think of it as both so I think of Tinier works as a social sculpture I just think of it as another artwork. And I think the way I try to measure some of the success of that artwork is that my obsolescence is my success. So the sooner that I can be obsolete and the thing works really really well then. I know I've done my job and here we are a decade later and I think there's some some truth where I can kick it, and this thing is going to flourish thirty six months ago. That would not have happened. So I would say that me not being there and it working really well is success and I think of it as an artwork that's helped me to do it for so long. I will say I'm at a new place with it because we're. PW's really working well now, and there's incredible brain trust in group involved that it's working at I'd say that I mean, it wasn't tenable by by the seventh year in a year and I mean I was giving tours five, six, seven tours. A day. People come to see my art in my studio and I'd be like, let me show you this other thing and by the time I'd done my fifth tour on a Friday I'd be crying I'd be like. Music Studio is and we're gonNA build the observatory. Worn. My being showman of like and this is where we're going to do here and what we're GONNA DO A. GAP here a post high school and college gap year, and then we're going to raise funds to do more like kids programs, and then we're GONNA fuck in. We're going to get another I was like driving my it was it worked but it got to the point where it was like I'm GonNa fucking die this is not tenable. So what we're if you're having this dark night of the soul where you're crying about the new art space as you're giving a tour where there any changes that really moved the needle in the right direction for you did you or did you just take a break from it all for a period of time to get your head screwed on what you do? The key, the key, the key is the people and so are incredible board of directors and advisors and staff. It's all on. Then do you know what I mean? I'm just another little in the wheel or whatever. So you know again, I have to take my hat off to Gabriel into Jannah anti, Tommy, who's director of technology into just so tiffany in like there's just so many people over the years some that are still there some that aren't there. Daniel Kantar are incredible director of design is so talented I. It's really just the people and that's the whole thing. The idea's great too. But it's the people and maybe these things -combobulate because if you bring a musician and this happened so many times, we're friends of mine who play music they would come there for the first time. I'd be meeting a musician and showing them around and they'd be like Holy Fuck. This is this is like I've dreamed in my whole life of a place like this I cannot believe it exists. How can I be part of this? How can I help I wanna see the table. and. So You know the way they say like minded people attract each other the fact that all of these crazy disciplines are in one building. All of these crazy souls are are in one building. That's what creates the gravity. And all Marie up or an all the fucking amazing talented magical souls that are coming and going inside of this like vessel. The building is nothing. It's a fucking bunch of bricks. It's bullshit without those people. We're GONNA. Come back to Maria because there is a question to ask you that that she actually suggested I don't think she'd would mind me saying that. But first we're GONNA get to that but first I want to try to connect. Some DOTS and to flesh out some of your journey. So you mentioned. Earlier in this conversation you're hustling you're giving away for free. You're like thousand forget one, thousand, five, hundred no, no to five hundred. Okay. Take it for free. You get from that point and in passing you mentioned something that I think is worth noting in that is. Collectors are not sure what you would call them patrons. Customers buying artwork in many cases for hundreds of thousands of dollars a piece. What were some of the? The decisions were the influences that helped you to go from where you were to where you are in terms of commercial viability right? 'cause it's. It seems like you've used the word untenable a few times in this conversation but you got to a point where it was very tenable if you wanted to make really good art and sell it for what for a lot of artists would just be a tremendous unthinkable sum of money can what were some of the things that happened or that you did to get from where you were where you are I think it's a cumulative. I think it's it's it's so many many little things because. I remember when I first saw the picture whatever for you know a thousand or five thousand or ten thousand or maybe even twenty, five thousand and I was like Holy Fuck I just got twenty, five thousand dollars go to Sizzler motherfucker this shit is crazy i. Mile. Rocky I I just made some shit and people pay me for it. That being said. You know. That it's like relative now I sell something for twenty five thousand dollars and it doesn't even move the needle because I have a big big studio in operation crazy projects of working on. But I would say it happened over twenty five years a little bit at a time and at the end of the day I think it's the work you know I try to ask myself three questions like can I live with it? Will I go to sleep next to each night? You're talking about a piece of work. Project. Right. Can I just live with? Can My kids live with it now I don't have any, but if I did and how will I feel about it in a hundred years. Like will it still makes sense to me in a system of objects or in a system of ideas? and. So I honestly think that the work just the work is the work like if you tear away all the writing about the work in all the bullshit or all of it, and you just literally are left with a thing, will that tell a story and will that move someone to maybe change their aperture or the way they see the world it happens over just a very, very, very long time you learn from each thing you do like away like what is it called? Light are works right with cars but like it's It's like Rene is learning your. That's how are really works just keep learning for a lot of people, the majority of artists so they never get to maybe these phase shifts. Where even twenty years thirty years they're able to command attention that I guess then translates into and I'm not gonNA obsess on these prices I'm just using it as a proxy for. The work that you've done decision. So I, do want to ask and I'm GONNA ask about the psycho geographies psycho geographic sketches in a second because I want you to describe them for people actually let's just let's just start there and then then I'll go to the next question but could you describe because they are unlike anything? I have ever seen anywhere I mean they are. There is nothing that I can think of that is remotely similar in you might have some type of reference but I don't can you describe what these one example of the type of work that you do? What are these look like if somebody were to walk into your studio and behold these things what do they look like? Well. We're talking specifically about the cycle geographies. Yeah. They are they're meant to be. This installation that's taking me I don't know how long till I finish at ten or fifteen years of about one hundred, twenty humans that are kind of like. If you think about the terra cotta warriors, they're meant to be this group of. Together and they're kind of like A. I. Kind of think of him as consciousness or something or. If you're taking if I took your brain and smashed it together. And made a map. Of everything inside of it. That you could read through images that's what they are. So you know often within a psycho geography, you'll have tens of thousands of images that I'm finding from a hundred years worth of books and magazines mixed in with paintings and drawings on the layers of glass. So described the glass for a second just so people can paint a mental picture based on my recollection and please correct me if I'm wrong I'm just gonNA use a an analogy here for anyone who's a star wars nerd or at least saw. Return to the jet I as an example. Hunt Solo frozen if you take something like that stand up so that Han Solo is standing on his feet per se but suspended the amber and then slice that into and converted into multiple layers of glass. Intake like the culture consciousness, of Han, solo and sort of use it to replace the imprint of his body with. The constituent parts of that and it was my son strange. But that's kind of visual in my mind as I recall it. But could you maybe just describe the form factor and how much it weighs what the size is? Sure. One one way I try to describe it like if I'm trying to describe it to a young person is I just make window sandwiches I just take a piece of. Cake Window these glass and I drawn it and I cut up my homework. Let's say cut up an encyclopedia and I glue little pieces a little human with the head of an elephant you know next to an amethyst crystal next to like a piece of. Architecture. From by whatever I'm just like rambling but my point is cutting up little pieces of paper and drawings and putting them on the layer of glass, and then I add another piece of glass on top and I do that again. But with in relationship to what I did before and then again and again and again, and the next thing you know you have. Thirty windows on top of each other and all the drawings mark making in all of the pieces of paper on collage on every single layer in concert together make up a psycho geography or tell a story, and then I glue them together with a glue that has the same effective index and the geographies that you're discussing a we're discussing about three thousand pounds. Each. So and I've made works that are up to like. Modulated in twenty, four, thousand pounds. and. It's as you would expect coming out of your brain and hands and work. It's trippy when you look at these because the experience changes depending on where you are situated. And looking at. The piece of art rhyming if you're standing on the sides is quite a different experience, it's almost vanishing act. Compared to looking at it from other perspectives, and then there is the looking at it from twenty feet away where you think it's quite one thing or resembles a melting person or any number of the forest or stair steps within human body, and then you get really close in you have the Mike Rovers, the macro experience, which is yet again something completely. Different. At least to the beholder. How did that start? How did this psycho geography start? Well I mean I guess I should just go backwards a little bit with the work. I. You mean like how did I start making working layers or just the Sykes La- whichever one you would like to tackle mean to fixate on this as the exclusive representation of your work I know you've done a huge wide spectrum of work I just think it's helpful since we're having a conversation with an artist for the listeners who are just hearing this to kind of paint a picture of of one example so it could be layered art. If, that precedes the cycle geographies and let's go with whichever you like. Yeah Yeah, and then we I in my Lewis Glenn. You haven't seen I don't know if you saw the politics of eternity finished. That's but I mean, really all this was experimentation accident and I was making collages I always loved collage. I always loved again kind of what we were talking about how do you not have system overload? Maybe one of the ways I deal with The system overload I love amalgamations, and I love bringing things together and pioneer works is that with people who? Right but with artwork you know I used to are still love to make paintings and collages, drawings and things that have rocks. I'm constantly putting disparate things together in very much interested in the relationships between those pieces and I was making a collage many years ago. A out of pages of a dictionary that I was ripping up and Agnes Martin like who's an artist grid of? Pages and I started pointing resin on the. Thing, and I saw on optical quality and. Be Got Stock and poured more resin and then I. decided to make these sort of boxes of Resin Joseph Cornell inspired I love Joseph Cornell, bike boxes with objects and I started drawing an layers of resin. And then I took the I saw something that looked almost biological and I took the objects out and I started just making these like Denver right drawings almost invented specimens and I got obsessed and I did that for some time and created. A lots of botanical looking drawings, layers of resin, and eventually I tried drawing a human in layers of Razan and I was starting to get shows and I couldn't the resin was going to kill me. So I switched over to glass the resume was GonNa kill you just because it's toxic I don't know anything about resin toxic and I was scaling the work I was in masks. All the time it wasn't a fun way to work but I was actually developing a language that I was really connecting to in. So I switched over to the layers of glass and that allowed me to change my mind edit and go back and forth because with the resin that could only go backwards I can never change my mind. So it was really a series of accidents and. The cycle geography's really you know I'm not even one I don't think that really connects so much to figure it a lot. So it's weird. I've spent a decade on a project like that But at the end of the day, I'm Chris trying I feel like I'm trying to make maps of consciousness I'm trying to make things like. A fucking meteor. The earth and you know, maybe one of the things left, you know you. DIG It out of the dirt three, thousand pound glass block and A. Really almost like a microscope slide. Make. The DNA of our species can be told through images and three media that's been found in trapped and preserved and so like. Frozen movies they tell stories. Through collections. Of. Ideas. and. I dig it I. You must have because you are a very good teacher and explainer of things and you mentioned earlier the window sandwiches and speaking to younger people. What do you think are some of the common mistakes that aspiring artists make right? Let's just assume they have some talent of some type and they have some passion. Let's let's assume those two things just to try to constrain it. What are some of the mistakes that that you see? Aspiring artists or up and coming artists making. Well, enough, maybe maybe too much looking at what the people around them are doing. opposed. Finding their voice through their experience and through their lens of life. And I think that might happen in art schools and or getting too obsessed with one period art history that moves them, and then sort of trying to emulate or build off of it too much opposed to again finding out what is in the bottom of their brains. That might be thing I mean something also I mean and also just knowing that it's not a job. It's like if if you think you can stop doing it to do something else. Maybe stop like. There's nothing else you can do never fucking giving up basically just like an always pushing and pushing and trying and not giving a fuck about what comes out at the other end really but more about learning from the process of making the thing. How much of that is dependent on being? Willing or even embracing of living a very simple life, right? Because I would imagine there there are some people out there add love to do that. But at the end of the day, I gotta pay my rent I gotta have XYZ shoes I can't I can't live on Rahman every day etc. is that a piece of it or am I just run of course, gotta be able to die for? Literally Got GotTa dispute like this is the thing. In Our and I've done that with the works I mean the last work finished the politics of eternity, which is only the third large work. Narrative work. You know it took me a couple of years and I almost bankrupted my studio to make it and I do that. Constantly I'm like I don't give a fuck about anything but making the thing. What would happen if it bankrupted your studio, would you how would you feel and what would you do? Would it just be destiny and then you figure become shorter cook or what would what would happen? And go like, Oh, become like Edco living fucking tropic somewhere in live off of coconuts. If. It were anyone else. I'd be like ha ha I. Mean I am laughing but I'm laughing in part because I can totally fucking imagine. Yeah So, important. That that life calls may constantly but I try to do these really like the new peace politics of eternity was really cool. It's like A. Narrative where am tried to depict the past and the future simultaneously and in the future there is a. Astronauts inhabiting the world if you will. And the past where would would-be astronauts? There's animal headed humans. If that makes sense to you. And everything is mirrored. So in the future, they're building a rocket on the top of a mountain. And in the same place in the past, they're building a temic antenna to the gods. So everything is mirrored. The tunnels in the future are straight and modern, and in the past organic, and in the future, there's the same tree that's growing in the future is growing in the same place in the past or whether it's a particle accelerator in the future, there's a cave of minerals in the past or where there's like a group. Sisyphus moment in the past underneath the ocean where the animal headed humans are pushing a boulder to capture A. Sea, monster in a cave that same moments happening in the same place underneath the ocean in the future but it's astronauts pushing a machine to capture data that's coming out of the sea and where the moon is in the future there's The sun in the past and you've got Mars right in the middle splitting splitting the world's and the future in the past are also depicted by waterfalls falling in to the present simultaneously where there's A. These weird narratives on on the sea, and there's a super tanker sinking which is connected to another project, and there's there's a animals. Coming out of the super tanker as how allegory to the ARC. Says for second and tell. People. Go to DESTIN YELLEN DOT COM or at Dustin Yellen Instagram, and this will make a lot more sense. Not that it doesn't make sense, but they might think to themselves. Holy Shit this guy's done a lot of acid which is also true, but it's a lot easier to absorb. Visually in a sense although I like the description I want to. Harken back to something you said which was you have to be willing to die for it and you talk a death for a moment and that actually relates to the question that Maria Papova for people who don't know who that is she's the most prolific writer imaginable very talented brain pickings dot org she suggested that I perhaps explore the death of your mentor or one of your mentors. I don't have context for this question. So please tell me on barking up the wrong tree but. Does that question bring anything to the surface few? It's seemed like this was something worth plumbing the depths of a bit. Yeah well, I mean I mean nominal man now I've lost a lot of people but when I was young. Girls Young Twenty Five. I lost my best friend and who was like my mentor teacher was a teacher and I think that completely. Affected me for the rest of my life and since then I've lost a lot of people including one of my mentors who is older than me and I, think when I was young I was always obsessed with death and I think I probably still am because I think of I don't know how time works I think it maybe is that the past in the present and the future exists simultaneously in some somehow you can access it and I'm not sure that when the body dies or or we we die here that it's all gone I'm very much an optimist and think that maybe there's some semblance of it that we can still tap into because energy cannot be destroyed I. Don't know how it works. I definitely have been obsessed with it always and still am and again back to that idea over system. will if I think about right now how many summers laughed do I have you know call it fifty for the sake of the conversation youtube you you and I have, let's say fifty summers left right? We'll fifty summers is like lunch. For Sure It's so fast. It's so quick and finite and I don't know if that. Affects my relationship to death even though I think it might be infinite and that somehow. I don't know how it really works, but but yeah, death is really informed maybe. Losing someone the closest person to me at such a young age I think really. Change the way I see the world completely does that obsessing over death and I'm asking someone who really in the last few months says has been thinking about death almost constantly. I'm curious to know what? Form that obsession has taken in other words is it? Heavy, and foreboding as it lead to depressive feeling. Is it just a snap of the fingers and kick in the? ASS like hey. Let's get moving. You don't have that much time. So let's use this. Is, best, we can. What is the sort of emotional tenor of that obsessing over death I think it's probably the latter is, is like look the rest of your life is fucking almost over. So you better get into it now. This is. There is nothing else but to this fucking minute this hour and I have a hard time I think thinking about forever or the for the rest of my life and I think it's posited some some challenges probably in like maybe why I haven't started family yetter maybe I need to start a family right away or making decisions. Interpersonal relationships I. Think it's challenged me because I'm like this is ed like right now I could literally be gone in twelve hours. It's completely. Plausible and therefore I want to open up the aperture and maybe that's through meditation or maybe that's just through listening being quiet but I want to open up the aperture as much as possible all of the time and feel as much as possible. All of the time because the way that I feel right now may be gone completely change. So if we're looking at living your best life desert drop this in the beginning, this is going to seem like a very strange segue. But from the Sublime to the maybe ridiculous. How did you end up dancing in a video? Is that even at real thing? Originally. Is True that I used to break dance. On Venice Boardwalk. Leg when we were living there for a heartbeat and I would fuck in I remember like moving up on cardboard and then like people give me fifteen bucks over the few hours and then like I moved up to linoleum. which I thought was cruel I don-. Video, happen I. Mean He's cool I'd like to actually have a coffee with him at some point. On do literally just not have a recollection of how you got filmed or read. Like how does that happen I? Actually don't know I got a phone call they're like show up at this place I didn't know what the fuck do. God I feel like there's so many so many directions we you can take that. Let me ask you this. This is. The question that is sometimes dead and it's not always a great question but I'll try it and it is if you could put anything on a gigantic billboard metaphorically speaking right to get a a message in image question word whatever. Out to billions of people what might be? You mean an image or a word, or some could be anything that you want to convey to billions of people anything at all noncommercial hopefully. No I just want to try to get everybody to love each other. Like everyone to be a little bit more tolerant a little bit more open a little. You Know Scott Fitzgerald said that a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold to. As in the mind simultaneously instill retain the ability to function so that if we could just somehow accept our differences as the the great glue that creates the complexity and miracle of what we experience. So I mean that would be the thing I would try to somehow betrays to say that look all of us every single one of us is experiencing the same thing differently and. We're all made of the same stuff and we're all sharing the same staff. So why on Earth are we deploying capital at such a scale to defense opposed to education or health care? Why are why you know why is our? Why is the world look the way? It does when really it could be so so incredibly dreamy if we all just decided together to do that. You mentioned earlier the tanker and he said that connects to another project and I remember. You share sharing a couple of slides I think it was on a laptop related to this but can you describe this other tanker project and just tell people with division and or the status is of this project? Lest. They think it's all about window sandwiches although that I, love love love those that work. What is the other tanker project. Supertanker moves, fossil fuels around I've been obsessed with this thing for years, and now it's got a little bit of movement but just just this idea of how do you How do you bring awareness to? Getting away from fossil fuels and I'm working on a project, the bridge because the bridge from the past and the future of how we've used and think about energy where I'm taking a super tanker, which is about that moves oil around and started to be like twelve hundred feet. It's not as big anymore, but it'll still be the largest lifted. Think it has or we're taking a supertanker and literally in one moment were pulling it up and putting it on its nose basically like almost like a like a a monument to the end of fossil fuels and we're coating it. So that safely let's say a million or a million and a half visitors can go take elevators through the boat up to the top of it, and then get tone observation deck, which is made of the bridge, which was where used to control the ship from hence the name, the bridge also. Double. Name and through the experience of visiting this monument, you'll learn about. The history of energy and potentially the future of how we can responsibly shepherd in a cleaner safer way to power the earth. So. Yeah. So that's the bridge I'm basically just putting a supertanker is knows again love? That's my probably will I love fits Gherardo pulling boat over mountain I'm trying to take a boat the size of a building and put it on its nose sits like a statue of Liberty with the liberty being freedom from fossil fuels release. That's the. Size of the Statue of Liberty and yes, it's a it's a monument to the end the fossil fuels it's like a monument. In power the earth with water. Son. With. Various. Other technologies if we can, if we can scale them, we're might the bridge be. I can't say I can't say. All right. We'll keep it under wraps for now I'm using the royal we since I have no idea but td the really cool project I'm working with you know the angles amazing architect and I'm working with Arup Engineering and I'm working with all these people who are helping to realize the stream. That's incredible. Just a few more things and this has been so much fun. So I'm looking at a quote from the creative independent Dot Com and the paragraph is attributed to you I believe, and here's our rates but I try to wake up every day with this mantra idea that have done nothing. You know I've accomplished nothing I've done nothing and the pages white. Therefore therefore with my words what's possible? What can be invented now is that something that you constantly remind yourself of is that still the case where is that intermittent? Had you think about the? I've done nothing blank slate is that accurate? Absolutely I feel that every day. Because it's true. I mean. Until, we've come to a place where there's more harmony more equality. and more justice and more thoughtfulness. On our planet that we share I certainly feel like, I've done nothing. I mean I mean because if anything is possible than. About how much we can do together. Than what I've done. In the past in the and if the pass is no longer. Now than therefore. Nothing. So I kinda feel that way all the time. Do you find that? Intimidating. Overwhelming. Or invigorating or something else like imagine, you'll be so crushed under the formidable nature of that type of what they might view as a burden or obligation that they would be paralyzed. No I I. Guess. I probably have someone of all of those feelings, but if anything I feel the wonder. And possibility. Of. What. We can make as a species together or as an individual that it's all possible right that it's like if I look at a white piece of paper and then four hours later, there's a drawing there there was nothing and now there's something and this idea between nothing and something is really interesting because. If you look at cities and technology's and all of it, there was nothing and then there was something and so. We really do have that capacity to create. Absolutely. Anything. All of the time Dustin I think that is a great place for me to stop my inquisition of questions. So Fun to reconnect people can find you on instagram at Dustin Yellen. Last Name Y. E.. L. L.. I. N. Dustin Yellen. Dot. COM Pioneer works out Oregon highly recommend people check out all of those and of course, will link to everything. We've talked about the movies, the books everything else in the show notes people. So anything else that you'd like to say before we close up shop on this conversation on the podcast. Why would even know when it I mean read some poetry think of this whole thing is a problem you know. Realize that that all of our you know I guess if if people could just can come together and the injustices and the incomprehensible horrors that this species. has created with some of also the great things on the planet in the past like let the past let us learn from it but know that going forward, we really if we choose to. Can build the world that everyone wants to live together. In a way that is equal and just and we can all sort of. Support and love each other to keep fucking inventing the dream. I like that it's inventing dream. It's not finding the dream right because you can each day like you said, choose to create something from nothing and It certainly helps when you have the right people at the table as you put it, which I think is a beautiful metaphor and to do that, you have to sometimes go out and invite those people find those people which is I think a common thread throughout a lot of the adventures that you've had. A weird guy who in New York City even going down the street I'm saying hello everybody and they're like looking at me like what's wrong with him? Well. Doesn't thank you so much for taking the time been. Fun For me and I've learned a lot. So I really do appreciate it and four people listening as always I. Will Link to all the resources and there'll be a transcript and all sorts of things which you can find tim dot blog forward slash podcast just search for Dustin or Dustin Yellen Ellen. Why L. I. N., and until next time be safe. Thanks you tune in and see what you can do at this empty table of life and good luck.

3D Printing Today #348
"Three D. Printing. Today's show number three, forty, eight. Analog. Three. D. Printer troubleshooting story replacing net. FAB. Welcome back to Three D. Printing today the podcast about all aspects of Three D. Printing Hobby professional industrial. It doesn't matter. We covered aw, my name's Andy Cohen. I'm here Mr Potter how you doing Andy I'm doing pretty good. Hey, welcome back Whitney just just climbed Mount Whitney. Yup We did about a two hike on the John Muir trail. So from Yosemite south to to Mount Whitney about two hundred miles with my son who turns sixteen on the trail. So that was pretty awesome. That's pretty impressive. Wow that's one heck of a long walk. Well. So a lot of things have happened while you were gone There's a whole trail of stories I'm GonNa look at Just Three D. printing industry dot com but I think the others have the same trail of stories of the impacts of the pandemic on on the Three D. printing industry industrial markets, and the service markets and it starts. Let's see. The latest one is about the jet getting from the New York Stock Exchange in getting picked up on the Nasdaq because of revenue declines of more than twenty percent. In and then you start going back in time there's a company called renshaw which I think's an English company that showing a significant revenue decline and they say that it's because of covid nineteen. The company that you've sent stuff to in in Brooklyn New York Voodoo Manufacturing announced they're shutting down permanently amid pandemic. it goes on and on. Let's see. There's stuff from St strategists. Rise. Where is it Materialize has a story about declines. It's it's pretty pretty impressive how it's affecting so many companies right now. And especially, since there's been so much press about how these three D. printing companies have stepped in to help out with P. P. E. shortages. While they were all stepping up and making making you know masks and visors and stuff and donating them. So there's no. Business Model Yeah. No income at all. Right. And not not just no income but also expense because you got all the all the material. So it was it was a good. You know press opportunity for them. Good good for media but I'll ultimately, it didn't bring them enough business to keep their doors open the ones that are that are closing and you can see the the decline in revenue, the ones that are still open but are you know yeah, everybody's going to be struggling. That's. What's What's really impressive when you contrast that With the Hobby Three D., printing market, and as an example on those of you who've heard our previous shows the past few weeks. We mentioned how we jumped in on the. kickstarter campaign for the creole. Six. They also did an interview on one of these news websites with the CEO of reality talking about how. How impressed they were that they went so far beyond their goals they they stopped at three point, four, million US dollars way beyond their expectations. We've also heard that they've doubled their production. throughput for their other machines such as the under three and the under five. So. The hobby market is booming, which makes sense because everybody's home and we gotta do something. And we got to find things to do in Three D. printing the birthing to do at home. So. In the meantime Whitney, what's coming up on our show this week? Let's see. We start out talking about a analog three D. Printer that you got to see that one that is cool and then we're going to troubleshooting story. And then you talk about your struggles to replace net. FAB. Let's do it. You know. It seems that three D. Printing. depends. Upon Digital Technology. You you can't I mean it's a safe that you can't have a three D. Printer if you don't have a computing device. Almost everything about how we represent the objects are on computers, their digital information Zeros and ones. In. To operate the computer to operate the frontier itself, you've got to have a little computer in there as well now. So. So one would assume that three D. printing could never have happened prior to digital computers or even analog computing is it's impossible to even think of Three D. printing working without some form of computing technology? But it looks like that's totally wrong. Yes that that. Just kinda shows what what what your assumptions are there. One of our longtime listeners. Ted Wow sent us a link to this is a project by a guy at the art academy in. Utrecht. In the Netherlands. And what he made him in the link is in the show notes, you will want to see this. He made a completely mechanical. Analog Three D. Printer it's an extruder caller syringe printer. So basically has an large oversized syringe which it looks like he's printing like clay slip with it, but the printer winds up soon has a counterweight and Kinda clockwork escapement that controls it. So there's there's videos of of this guy he asked, rewind his counterweight a couple of times during the course of the print. and. The things ingenious to program I'm air quoting here the machine you bend a piece of wire and Wire. Right, and that bent piece of wire is then. Clamped into the machine, and then there is a pattern follower that is driven by the piece of wire that controls the diameter of this vase that you're printing. and. Marvelous. Design and an, and it looks like he's got like a bracket that rides that wire. And as the printers running the bracket goes down and as it's going down, it moves the bed in. X. I guess it's just ex. Well in us that exits are actually because this isn't an XYZ printer. This is a radio printer. Yes you're right. That's correct. The beds the bed rotates. The bed rotating the the extruder standstill, the bed rotates. GOES DOWN IN Z and does move left and right her her the wire analog that the the artist develops for the print. Right Impressive. Yes says interesting question is this a three D. printer or your or are your demand in this case are Z and and our as in the radius I would argue that it definitely is a three D. printer because it's it's it's generating in an additive fashion three dimensional objects a three dimensional object. But. It's interesting. Those you're only actually controlling too because it's it's strictly a vase sprinter. You're only actually controlling two dimensions. The VAT fascinating to to look at would I especially like about as that when I would call the escapement, which is the thing that keeps the the The. Keeps everything from from going as fast as it would under under the force of gravity. Any kind of a clockwork thing where you have a counterweight or a spring, you usually have some sort of a speed controller that keeps things operating at the speed. You want rather than just the speed that gravity would determine and in this case, his his speed control mechanism is a windmill. Because naturally his Dutch sheep, you have to have a windmill you're done not change the speed of the engine by changing the twisting the wings which creates air resistance and that would slow it down. That's cool. Everything about this is so cool. This this machine is a work of art and I think it could have been built in wood out of all would this is all metal by the way it's brilliantly made, but this could have been built by someone in the Middle Ages and not necessarily somebody with digital technology at all. It could have been. It's it's just it's a matter of of having the idea having the thought and you know until a whole lot of people started thinking about additive manufacturing nobody would have come up with this you know. Yeah. So by marvelous pretty incredible. I have to be to send them an email telling them that this is just mind boggling. This is wonderful. This is the kind of stuff we used to see at maker faire remember. We see stuff like this that would have our read. Our mouths would be wide open and our jaws would drop to the ground this kind of stuff I. Miss It. Ella. And then you read the date on this, this Asha came out in twenty fourteen. It's just been just been sitting around in in obscurity until until listener Ted out. Stumbled upon it and passed on onto us. So thank you. Yeah. Highly recommend check out our show notes and watch the video. You'll be as impressed as we. So I want to tell a story about. A troubleshooting problem that I had with the tool changer, but it does relate. To other three D printers as well. So it's a good story to learn from learn from mistakes learn from problems and gives you a a more of a weapon. Joie are of use cases to to to take from if you get the same kind of issues, and if it can be sometimes when you when you watch things, they can be kind of confusing and really the whole picture you're trying to do here is try to reverse what you're seeing coming out of the three D. Printer to figure out what's going wrong and that's ninety percent of what we're doing in hobby three. D. Printing because usually. We built the machine ourselves. There's only support online and you're trying to figure it out and when you do figure out, it's great when you don't figure out, it's not so great. Okay. So let's rewind a little bit I've Been Three D. PRINTING PLA color objects as a kind of lesson to to kind of certify the printer, certify my skill set and just print as much as I can and learn as many little tricks in his little things. I can learn to make it work better higher quality faster more efficient on and on and on, and we do talk about some of these lessons I learned. But one of the objects I picked, which we did talk about was the tigger `object. We did do that I think it was a thing of the week where may have been a segment that was a thing of the week and I noticed when I first tried to print it. I came out to the garage after about six hours or so thinking, it'd be up to the head. And it's and the printer had just stopped. Didn't do anything. It had just stopped. It was still running. But it was the heaters had turned off and it was like in stasis mode. It wasn't. It felt like it seemed to say it was still printing, but it wasn't. It was just. Stuck. And I had to hit the emergency stop button in the duet do at web interface. and. And and I tried again and again it did it stop in the same place the exact same spot on the the objects body and I'm looking at I. I'm not sure what's going on here but the. The again, the printer just stops and that tells me. That it's doing what it's told to do basically garbage in garbage out, which means what went in was garbage. Because it's not completing. So I have to assume there was something wrong with the decode file. Now, remember it's Wi. Fi. and. It's going to a SD A. Micro. SD Card. and. So there are reliability issues in both of those objects was those hardware things that we have to deal with so I think it will let's go back and re slice and send it again and the second time I did it it worked fine. So my assumption was verified at least I think it was I don't have any physical proof of it other than possibly if I'd looked at the code of the code compared it but I didn't have the time to do that I just three sliced and sent in and it worked perfectly fine. Okay. So that object printed and we talked about it and moving on to another object and this past week the We had the launch of the drake that dragon two capsule we're probably. By the time this show comes out. It may have landed come back by them but at the time I was like well, I'd like to see what the capsule looks like. Maybe there's a a model on verse of the Dragon to and sure enough there's a whole bunch of them. I did pick one and eventually I'll have it as a thing of the week we will have it in their because I plan on. Chopping it up and doing a multicolor print of it but I just wanted to print it once and in the process I wanted to remember that there's a trunk on after the capsule, the back of the capsules like they call it the trunk and it contains unpressurised storage for things that you may want to take out after you get up to the ISS things that may be in there that stay. Right yeah. So if you got to have a lot of Tang that's a lot of ten Whitney. Anyway. So that's a separate part, but it's in the in the the St L. File. It's space I wanted to print nose up. So I created an object and bullying the object shape from the shape of the inside of the trunk. You know subtracted so that this object that I made in cad. Its. Shape is exactly like the underside of the trunk and the capsule and that cuts off right at the edge of where the trunk end. So I'm printing up from the bottom of the trunk with the support object inside. Made, a pet made of PLA. For the Petchey object I'm printing K. and I did a few other fun things but we'll talk about that in the future when we do, we do a segment just on that because it's a bit of a challenge, it uses five processes to print in simplify three. It's pretty complex. Any case this relatively simple when it's two processes one is the pitch, the petchey object, and the other is the P. L. A. Support object underneath so that the underneath is nice and clean. And I started printing. And, it fails about four hours in. And it fails in a way that's different. It says it's a heater failure. I. Get the Duet heater deal alert that says that the heater was not heating up enough. Now unfortunately when the duet a does these comments to you, it can't get any more. Smart the NAT basically, it's looking at your your heater profile. When you put the machine altogether, you have to tell the do at board you know run a test on my heater. So you figure out how fast it heats up. You give it a maximum heat and it creates curve. and it puts that curve into into memory, and then every time you use that heater, it compares it how it's heating up to that curve that originally recorded and if it's off by a certain amount, usually the defaults ten percent I have to fifteen percent, but it's or Tennessee I have to fifteen. See if it's off by certain amount for certain length of time, it pauses the printer for another specific set of time giving you the chance to go in and do something get it out of the problem and then restarted. Okay. Well, I got that alert and this time I couldn't get out of it and I and I I. I looked at the cabling I moved the cabling move things around and I couldn't see anything wrong and I reset hit the emergency stop and I saw can now heated up and it heated up fine. Okay. So I tried it again. Happened in the same place again. What's going on here? What are you making any changes to the heat immediately before that? I'm not doing anything before I actually I'm looking at it and I'm looking at the on the duet web interface they give you a line graph that shows you the temperatures of each heater and I'm looking at the heater line and it's kind of it's not bad. It's kind of going up and down. I go. Oh Wow. Up at the downward fan is on sure enough I. started again. The downward fan was turned on now here's a little bit of a complication the tool changer. Does not have the the slices that are out there today all of them do not have enough sophistication to work with the tool changer for. The downward fans on and off the way they do the heaters in the and all the other objects. They're not there yet there's not enough in the slices were hoping that the next version of simplify three D. and the next version of Patio and and cure we'll fix that. But right now, none of them will do on the fly in the objects G. Code Control of the. Tools, downward fan unfortunately perhaps they all assumed that the dour fan would be in the carriage, not the tool and e three D. May Mehta design decision to put the down fan into the into the tool? So who knows but for the time being really the only way, you can control a specific downward fan for a tool and tool changer is in one of the sub macro. 's for the tool. So there is one sub macro referred to as t post to post zero through t post three per tool, and this was t post zero because it was the first tool and it has PECI in it. So I go into its code and there is the there's a one line of code that says the turn on the fan and turn it on at. The speed. So I turned it off turned off that fan for that tool. Now, unfortunately, it still like that I'd have to go into the code and change it for a different print. That's a bit of a problem with the tool changes have yet to take that out of the the Chico and put that into a user interface with the slicer. Okay. So I start the print again. With. The Fan turned off now the line is perfectly flat it's not it's not going up and down at all thing I solved it bet what was happening was the fan was Making too cool at some point because it's a shape like a cup, the support part was shaped like a cup and air's going down. So perhaps the air is coming right back up and hitting back up on the on the. End and cooling it off a little bit too much. Okay. Started up guess what it stopped in the almost the exact same place. Loops again for the third time. I move things around I. Look at the cables and give up and reboot starts. You know it heats fine. There's no problem at all. Okay. The fourth time and I did post on on the form about this at this point in time I'm scratching my head going what's going on here I'm thinking that the files been corrupted like the tigger file. I'm thinking that I've got bad code. That's my only assumption because the cable seem fine. The heater seems fine. Everything else seems fine and it's happening really close to the same part the same area. Sam Thinking. Oh. Maybe it's g-code maybe maybe there's a line that controls the heater maybe there's a line that says to the some does something to the heat that's messed up. It's turning the heater off instead of keeping it going. That slight variation is the time. It's taking the heater to cool down and before the alert comes on. So at this point I'm thinking well, it's either we've got a problem with the do Wifi with Wifi. Or my st cards corrupted right just like with the tigger. Okay. So I get a new card and this time I didn't go through I. Fi- put the g code into the St Card to the appropriate directory popped into my do it Wi fi ran it again. Failed the. Same place no a little bit sooner. Little Bits. Okay. Well for sure it's not g-code. So I try and and this last time I tried I thought wait a minute if it fails now than it's not the code, it's something else so don't touch anything. Right don't do a thing touch the carriage don't touch the tool don't touch the cabling don't touch anything. And hit the emergency restart so that everything works again. And heat up the tool if there's anything related to the heater, it won't he'd up. If it does heat up, then I don't know what's going on I've sure enough the heater didn't heat up. So either a bad heater or problem with the cables. Turn it off. Go into my drawers, pull up my one spare heater takes me five minutes to pop in connect it take the old heater. Thankfully, the Petchey didn't ruin the hot block this time like it did the last time. cleaned. It all off but the new heater in. Worked Fund. And took a really careful look at the connector for the heater and inside the connector, the must be a problem with the cable. Inside, the connector to the another I should point out that the the thermal, the Thermostat or thermal couple the heater, the Dour Fan and the extruder cooling fan are all on different connectors so that you can take the tool off the printer and completely disconnected and put a different tool in their. However, these connectors are not designed for. And reconnecting, connecting reconnecting, and of course, I've been. Working on this printer nonstop and changing things and doing things and. I guess this one connector, which by the way is the best connector of the four of them. All I can think of is perhaps somewhere inside that lead that solder or debt crimps onto the part that's in the connector somehow loosened up. And because of the design of the connector, you really can't get in there. You can't fix it. So. So. There was one specific carriage position that it without that it was failing at and every time it reached that position in the print it failed could be it could be that it took a certain amount of vibration. So I would go in there and move everything which in turn would put the contact of the cable to the connector. Without knowing it. Let. It print and the vibration of the movement which separate them. And it just happened. That it took that long for two separate just. So happened now it's funny because we're the heater you know you can get re get away with an intermittent connection because the heater takes some time to cool down before it pitches a fall right so as long as that intermittent connection doesn't stay open that long then you know you you, which means perhaps it was disconnecting and reconnecting in the motion of the carriage and at some point, move the end of the lead far enough away from the connectors lugged to to to hit the criteria. To Stop. That could happen to but regardless. That's how complicated he could get in trouble shooting something that goes wrong. A three D. Printer, and if that level of troubleshooting is is a problem for you then. Then, you don't want to build your own three D. Printer you WANNA, buy out of the box and hope that you don't get these kinda complex problems. Remember this is the tool changer and the tool changes is about as experimental as you're GonNa get as a kit at from another company I would say that you know you're GonNa get this level of complication with the White Knight. My expectation is you won't with the rail core because the railcar so it's been so well thought out and it's not a tool changer. So there's not going to be these this level of complication in the tools. But yeah there you go. That's what it is It's a complex technology and things can go wrong. So I. Don't know if you guys remember but you know I got kind of forced into updating my Mac pro here. Thanks to logic pro, which is the the digital audio workstation software that we use for this podcast I had put off the update because I knew that the last update. Forget the the goofy stupid. Phrase that they used to describe their operating systems see which wins this one's Catalina. Catalina which is a small island off the coast of southern California where people like to go fishing. anyway Catalina is the first version of the MAC OS X. which. No longer has thirty two bit support. Which is unfortunate. Now, the argument that comes back is well, if you have thirty two bit APPs like we we had about four or five of them for the show. And one of them might one of my aps was net stab nab private which I paid three hundred bucks for. Nine thousand, nine, hundred, and twenty, fourteen, I'll missing. Twenty fourteen. And I've been using it religiously all the time I use it for lots and lots of things. It was worth every penny paid for. And I. I'm okay. With that. I would be okay with spending another three hundred bucks to replace it. But I can't I can't replace now by the way, people would argue, well, just get yourself a vm virtual machine. And put it in another window. You know you can run the old OSX. Or run it in windows in a virtual machine and you still have it. Well, unfortunately. I'd have to reinstall it. And autodesk will not verify it because it's no longer supporting it. So it with its demise on my Mac pro. It's basically gone. I can't use any longer now I can use. The free version trial version of the current net. FAB. However, it's on pc only there is no Mac version and most of the stuff that I needed is disabled. and. It costs fifty dollars a month if you wanted enable and that's pretty expensive I'll get the three hundred bucks in no time fifty bucks a month. So that's no longer a solution for me and basically all I WANNA do all I want to be able to do is chop up STL's and clean them up. That's really the primary functions what I was doing within an and I'm willing to pay for solution that does that. So. I need everyone's help I can't find one. I've tried three coat and I can get three D. coat to work. But it's like chewing St- tinfoil it's ridiculous. It's so first of all first of all, whenever you do so every now and then you'll do something with three d. coat. and. Because it's such a poorly designed user interface, all of a sudden, the light that lights up the object will go dark. Yeah I've had that happen too. I think it has to do with if you've got a hole in the surface and it no longer recognizes it as a as a a solid. You're working in surface mode rather than in in vauxhall mode. That's pretty bad. That's pretty bad. So you try to move the light. And you ever try to move the light source. It's non deterministic. There's IT's like random. You move your mouse around and it moves the light source around the slowly gets dimmer and dimmer and dimmer until it goes. It's totally broken. It's totally broken. Okay. That's just one thing on trying to. This was the real reason why loved net fab you can position things exactly. So that, when you go through to cut you know you're going through the front and the back and just the right way you can't with three three coat. Because you can't rotate and position exactly. It's almost like a guessing game. What were they thinking when they came up with this way of rotation panning it didn't make any sense. So really it's of value, and then if you you gotta do it in surface mode if you do it in vauxhall mode, the boxers will not rematch when you put them back two facets. So figure, Hey, you could chop it up and Vauxhall's will work. Great. Doesn't work great. It's too complicated too complicated for the software to get the boxes to meet up exactly where you want them to meet up after you chopped it up as as facets. It will not. We will not work. So thirty coats a nonstarter and I know what you're GonNa, say you're going to say well, just just use blunder. Talk. About nightmare interfaces. But but yeah, you could in theory it, it'll do that. It if assuming you have a clean stl that has your surface model doesn't have any. Corruption, in it if all of the the you know facets meet up exactly the way they're supposed to there's no holes in it. There's no. Extra pieces there's no pieces hanging off of that are attached. Anything depends a lot on where your where your parts that you're dealing with come from. But if you're dealing with scans, forget it there too messy. Yeah and not only that but the user interface is like banging your head against the wall. And you. Have the same issue rotation and positioning that I had with network that I have with three code. It's just as awkward and hard to get it to position exactly where you want it before you start. Aiming to where you want to do your cuts. Well, it's not too bad because I'm blender I'm you can. You can manually enter numerical positions for anything in blender if you have the right window open I'm yeah the. Is is cumbersome, but it's a it's a complicated thing that you're doing. So Hey. You can you can I you can? Position Things exactly where you want to the fraction millimeter just entering the numbers but that that that's exactly my argument. My argument is I'm doing something complicated to begin with. News it's hard to do to begin with. Don't make it even harder to do by designing user interface. That's that's minimal consideration for the the the the task at hand. And I get that with with three coat, I get that crap with blender and it's even worse with Mesh Mixer. Holy Smokes Mesh Mixer well, first of all, Mesh Mixer can't do more than one or two cuts. Of the object and then it seems to die it just can't do it on but to do it so that it works you've got to go through this enormously complex convoluted bunch of things you've got to do so that it's it's separates the objects and you know what I give up with net. FAB. It was like it was it was you could feel your way through you didn't have to relearn it every time it was. Basically just move it move a little bit and it would move it on almost like a grid. So you had a specific control and then when you did your cuts and unfortunately it only had it'll plane cut or line cut now with three D. coat, you can do all sorts of other kinds of cuts. So I thought well, there's the that advantage with Mesh. Mixer? You can do a painting cut like they have you do in. The APP for the the Pallet I forgot the name of the APP with. But you have to use the palettes offering only work with the palate Unfortunately, they don't see a business model for themselves at mosaic were they can make the software and sell the software. They don't think that way. Unfortunately I'm so. We actually have a tool out there. That that is affordable and we'll work and operate correctly for chopping STL's and cleaning them up I just don't think it's out there. Yeah I think the problem is, is that you know? Three coat is not designed to do what what we're doing. It's an animation tool right now and and blender is like It's like a fricken Swiss. Army knife blender is is the open source version of everything in the three D. World. But it's not really specialized in any of it. Less somebody's written a specific plug in for it just seems to me was an opportunity here for someone to put out an APP and sell it to the hobby world. Thing versus all facet files and we've got this massive library of facet files. We've got the capability to do multi material printing now. But only going to get objects that are multi material. If you make the multi material during their development, you can't go back and chop them up and make the multi material all that easily today. Unless. I'm wrong and if you're out there and you're listening to this and you're saying Andy you're totally wrong I've got the APP for you. Please please. Let me know and I will come back on the show and talk about it. But. It's got to be something other than blender. 'cause I've already advocated for that one and been shot town multiple times. I am going to go back to blender and see if I can. A set the user interface in such a way. So it's optimized for this type of use case. I don't feel very hopeful though I'm very pessimistic it. It's it's not that hard. The only the only is a little bit little bit. Cumbersome with blender is that you can't split something you can only bullying it so you basically have to make a duplicate copy of the object and split one of them and keep one side and then split the other one with the same cutting object and keep the other half or whatever. Pieces you're trying to do so it gets complicated because you don't have the ability to say cut into two pieces. You can only say use this object to eliminate you know part of the object. So Ain't gonNA work. It works I've done it. We'll send you a file and see if you can do. Okay. Let's do it. Hey Whitney another written to the hard drive waiting for encoding uploading and commitment on our feed to all of our very supportive listeners. Thank you all out there for your support on Patriots on. Thank you for your positive reviews on I tunes. We really do appreciate those a lot by the way and hey, thanks for listening. We do it for you. We do it for fun because we love to three D print we don't do this ads. We don't even advertise ourselves on this show not that anybody would buy us. We're not really for sale. I got a thing of the week this week. Yeah, what is it while you are up in the mountains? Down here in regular world on the forums one of our one of our foreign members a fellow. WHO's first name is George but his handle on thing of verses. Let's see. That leapfrog. published his his remix of the cloth masks nose clip. Now, he took a couple of previously posted designs. And kinda folded them together to come up with what he thinks and what I and I agree with him. Obviously is a fairly optimal design for a clip that you put into regular cloth face masks and turns the regular cloth facemask it to a highly efficient non fogging. Face mask and I printed up I printed my first one and I slid it onto my cloth masks which I bought for I think five dollars a few months back. Now when I wore that cloth masks before and I breathe I could feel the air coming in and out on my cheeks on sides of my nose because it did not seal there was no way to seal it. I. Put this clip on and not only does it. SEAL, but it stays in place. Glasses don't fog up. Now. I admit I printed it I in a flexible material not a good idea and went back printed it and Peggy. with Patchy it works really really well, but I would recommend if you're going to print this, get yourself some mole skin padding stuff usually put on your feet while you're hiking did you use any of that stuff up in the scene I am not a fan of mole skin I I use a product called Luca tape, which is is is based it's like mole skin but better, it's not padding it. You don't want to put more padding in in your your shoe because you're rubbing against something already. So putting more padding in there is probably not going to help you just want something that will protect it very, very thin so. I think for this application, the most may be better because you have in your writing you want Patio Padding it makes it soft and comfortable. So I put the mole skin on the inside of the mask where the clip is and it makes it comfortable and add that with some ear savers and you're good to go for an entire day with your mask on if you can handle that but any case thanks to George we really do appreciate the posting it. It's great in a good thing of the week that by the way that's thing number. Four, five, six, zoom in a little bit four, four, five, six, eight, three, six, two on verse. May Be good for you. But how does the mole feel about it? I don't care. I don't care about that mole. It's a pretty, pretty neat for for a mole. impressed. Anyway, if you've gotta tip a question or a candidate thing of the week, don't hesitate. Please send us an email Santa to Info at Three D. Printing today DOT com. That's T. H. R. E. E. The letter D printing today DOT com. You can also post on our form we invite you to join go to Google and search. Three D. printing tips and tricks it'll take you to our Google Group. If you want to post, you have to hit that little join button. We also have a group on facebook search on Facebook Three D. Printing today, and you'll find on there but I recommend the forum. There's a lot more activity on the form a lot more discussion, and it's easier to find previous discussions and stuff on the on the Goo group. Let's see. We do have a show next week. What's coming up with me? Always, start out with part two of printing a dragon actually it's not to. No it's the dragon to. A printing dragon to all. That's right. Yeah. Okay. Right. which landed just recently, very successful flight of the Dragon to Bob and doug are safe. Yes and then we'll be trying different different wiper materials on the tool changer. And then we talk about working with Meshes fusion three sixty. So I guess that's it. Great. Thanks for listening.
A Good Death With Caitlin Doughty
"To mask or not mask questions like and whether schools should reopen the fall or bars and restaurants should be opening their doors now. They touch almost every aspect of our lives. But when you drill down there all really about something, none of us, WanNa talk about. Deaf. Even as the Cova death in America has reached nearly one, hundred, forty, thousand, our national conversation has in some ways skirted the issue. Sure it comes up usually as statistic in debates about other issues. Or the economy. But everything we do in this crisis is about how much effort we put into preventing deaths in our communities. More specifically whether we should allow some people in particular older people to die in lieu of the rest of US making certain sacrifices. But. This is nothing new. We've been avoiding conversations about mortality for a long time. Today! We're talking to someone with a unique perspective on death. Someone who sees it as more than a tragic inevitable ending? Someone, who thinks it's important for us to acknowledge that a hangs over us all the time. Death is playing an enormous role. In, taking up an enormous amount of mental energy in our lives, and it's important to acknowledge that it's important to engage. Don't be on Home Media Telescope your host Jonathan. and Monday Wednesday and Friday. We're going to bring these stories of people far away up close. And how each of us learning to live through this? Producer Tanna Robbins has the story. CAITLYN DOTY IS A funeral director at clarity funeral home in Los, Angeles she's only thirty six years old, but in the last decade or so Caitlin has dressed embalmed and cremated hundreds of dead people. If you've had the misfortune of losing a loved one. You're still have no idea what happens to the body. After a person dies, the funeral process kind of happens in secret, it's opaque and most Americans, at least seem to like it that way, but Caitlin wants to change all of that. I. Started Movement called death positive, which sounds especially salacious during pandemic. What do you mean death positive? How could you be positive about death at all and death? Positive to be clear doesn't mean we're happy that people are dying. It just means we are very pro radical awareness about death and the effect that death has on our psyches Caitlin, thinks America's stiff upper lip approach to grieving. The deceased has allowed us to avoid some difficult conversations. I would say that Americans have the most toxic relationship with death of anyone in the world. What America is doing which is a culture of silence and a culture of high cost funerals. Low family interaction is doing us a profound disservice. Simply put, she thinks not allowing ourselves to come to terms with death, and that the funeral industry is taking advantage bilking grieving families out of cash while shielding them from the responsibilities. That really should belong to them. Family should be the ones taking care of the bodies. Family should be the ones helping to dig the grave and putting the dirt into the grave. They should be pushing the body into the cremation machine, pushing the start button they should be taking locks of hair and making flower wreaths, and and holding hands and dressing the body, being as brutally present as possible. What Caitlyn is saying terrifies me. It sounds so backwards that I should be the one digging the hole that my mother will rest in for eternity when all I want is nothing more than bring her back. How can I be expected to shoulder my grief and the shovel buries her. Kaylynn believes that taking an active role in the funeral helps families process their grief. It gives them an opportunity to be with their loved one in a private and intimate way before they have to say their final goodbye. And it gives families more power over how a body is taken care of and that to Kaitlin is a good death. In might sound strange, but up. Until the early nineteen hundreds families were responsible for taking care of their dead. They couldn't pass the body off to an undertaker and they wouldn't have wanted to. Death positively isn't about going back to the old way of doing things, though it's about making death more personal. Caitlyn doesn't want families to miss the opportunity to wrestle with their own mortality while they give their mother. Let's say the funeral. She would have wanted. They may want to do mom's hair. They may WANNA. Do moms lipstick just like she liked it? They may want to paint her nails just like she liked it. Put her favourite jewelry on. They may want to sing her favorite songs. Or tell stories about her, and it's just about. Being present with the dead body as a powerful reminder that you're will one day die, and that this person who is so important to you is no longer here. If the idea of putting lipstick on your dead mother is creepy. Consider that the funeral home would be doing it anyway just without you. Caitlin simply wants to give people the agency to make decisions about their own mother. No matter how hard might be. Kayla learned early on that. Most people struggle with conversations about death. Because well, it's scary to think about. I had somewhat traumatic introduction to death when I was a young child. About eight I was at my local shopping mall and I saw a young child fall from the big second story balcony. And hit the ground below. And it was incredibly dramatic and difficult, and I did not feel like there was a lot of support for me, not necessarily from my parents, but just from my culture. Nobody was talking about what that would be in what that would mean. Caitlyn had so many questions like what happens when we die where we go, am I going to die, and what will happen to my body? Then I had no idea what went on behind the scenes. I had no idea what happened to a dead body, after it died at eight Caitlin was wrestling with her own mortality without any guidance, because even the adults around her couldn't face it. Still can't face it. More. American society has built in ways to avoid these conversations. You can hear it in the language we use like she's passed on, or he's in a better place now. But recent months have forced us to reckon with death in a way that only major crises like natural disasters, wars and viruses like covid nineteen can do. Death in large quantities. And not a day passes when the specter of death isn't hanging over all the little things. We do daily who we meet where we go what we touch who we touch. It has made death more present concern. The pandemic is not only exposing these latent fears that we have about death, but also showing us the behind the scenes of death in a way that a lot of Americans in the last century have just learned to entirely ignore or learn to entirely suppress. In April, images of bodies stacked refrigerated trucks flooded the news New York City faced the brunt of covid nineteen. In a viral video, one Brooklyn resident couldn't believe what he was seeing. This is live in Brooklyn New York. Brooklyn Hospital they putting bodies. is in the back of the Free Talk Ya. visit, by. Real! Visit Maria. And it kind of freaked. People out they thought is that can happen to me I'd I I was not surprised to see people. Of course, be incredibly afraid to all of a sudden see bodies and trucks, even though as a funeral professional. When I saw that I was happy that they were doing that I, don't want bodies rotting in the streets. I want them labelled and neatly piled in a refrigeration unit until such time that they can be cremated or buried. That's incredibly positive to me. That's what should be happening. Those trucks were being filled with fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, aunts, uncles cousins too many. It felt almost unjust amoral. But the reality is those refrigerated. Trucks were preventing much less dignified outcome refrigerated storage is is crucial, and the fact that we now have it is changing this pandemic from absolute chaos and mass graves, which would have been in the past to a relatively ordered situation I. Think People Freak out when they see those images, because they are not aware of what goes on at all behind the scenes in the death industry, there are huge cold storage units with bodies stacked up. They're neat. They're labeled, but there are. Bodies stacked up in cold storage unit all over the country right now. Caitlin thinks if we were a little more familiar with the process. We wouldn't be freaked out by what for funeral homes is business as usual? That's what death positivity requires. That's awareness it saying. Oh, my Gosh I didn't even understand. All these things were going on I didn't even understand the way that death was working. I didn't understand that. When the man who is homeless on the corner dies, something happens with his body. And its governmental and it's bureaucratic, and having those understandings is opens you up to understanding more about the structure of society. The taboo around death is the first step towards creating a more equitable funeral system for everyone. CAITLIN wants us to be closer to our dead. Kobe nineteen however has created new barriers to that goal I always know that somebody could die. That I love that. My parents could die that my partner. Could I know these things? But I always can keep in mind. Okay, but then I would tend to their body and I would be physically present, and I know how I can workout. My grief seen other people do it. But. There was a moment. Maybe an April or so when I realized, my parents live in Hawaii I grew up in Hawaii there. They were leaving letting people in. I was like if my mom or dad. Gets, COVID and dies. I will not be able to care for their body. It's unimaginably painful to Caitlin. That she wouldn't be able to give her own mother and father a good death to make sure their body is cared for as they would have wished even if she could fly to Hawaii. There's no guarantee able to spend time with them before they're laid to rest. In March things got so bad that caitlyn's funeral home. The aptly named clarity funerals was forced to make the unimaginable a reality around March when things started closing down because of Corona virus. We had to stop offering in person viewings and in-person witness cremations at our funeral home, and for us, because that's what we specialize in. What we want to offer families more than anything. That was an incredibly hard two months or so. To have a family call and say. Dad Died. Time to come in time to be present with him and to have to say no. We've never had to say no ever. It's been gutting. CAITLYN's life's work has been to make more people comfortable. Being in the room with their dead loved ones, so having to turn them away is especially difficult. But don't get the wrong idea. Kaelin emphasizes it's not because of the body's. It's the living who are truly dangerous right now. She doesn't want her funeral home to cause more unnecessary death. But like with everything during this pandemic people are finding some solace online there's. People, who create little cemeteries and memorials in animal crossing. There are people who are doing you know. Zoom funerals on all these things and at and I think that. On one hand as someone who's very into presence with the dead body. I don't want everything to go online, but I do think that it shows the intense desire that people have to be present and to be morning and to be expressing their grief. Reckoning with death is something many of us never do until it's too late. We deny the truth even as we know it can, and it will come for us. Ignoring death also means not preparing for it ahead of time, and making it harder to have a good death, and why are people not having the good deaths, and that's what we need to excavate. And a little digging, it reveals something about our society. That's become clearer than ever lately. The whole system just isn't fair. Things that should be equal. Just aren't. Why are people of color dying disproportionately in the pandemic? Why do certain people in the medical system get a good death and other people don't? Why do certain people get to die on hospice with a lute playing in the corner and other people don't. That's the kind of work that we need to be doing. Because Intel were interrogating society in the way that it set up to where some people can't even die while they live hard, and then they can't even die in a nice safe way and let their community take care of their body. That's a real problem, and that reflects is very negatively on our society. Around the same time the news is breaking about refrigerated trucks in New York. There were also stories about mass graves. Some of them featured images of cardboard coffins, being stacked and long trenches on Hart Island just off the coast of the Bronx. So many people are dying in New York City due to corona virus complications that the morgues are crowded to the point where new graves are being. Doug off heart island near the Bronx. Crews are burying unclaimed bodies that have been at the board for more than two weeks. is where New York berries their unclaimed dead. So if you cannot afford a funeral or you do not have any family you go to heart. Island and they've always done what are called trench burials, which instead of individually digging grave plots they dig a large horizontal trench, and then line the boxes up one by one in the trench to be able to save that that Labor. To do it all at once. Hard island is in fact a cemetery. It's likely where the body of a homeless person who dies in New York in up. Along with any other deceased body. That isn't claimed that doesn't belong to someone else or isn't identified. Right or wrong, it's not something to be feared. It's part of an intentional system one that we set up because of tragedies like the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic one aimed at preventing bodies from riding in the streets and one that has proven critical of late. And, yes, the number of unclaimed and indigent dead have gone up in the pandemic, because deaths in general have gone up in places like New York during the pandemic, so it's not that strange that there would be more people to be buried there, but what's different is the drones and the attention and the like what is going on here. Well, what's going on is what is normally going on, but at a higher rate because a right, there's this pandemic. To Kaitlin, it's more shocking and telling of our priorities that we've been able to ignore these burials up until the pandemic, but in the last month or two, our conversation about death has changed. You have some people who are going. Wait a second. This is showing me that my relationship with death is very fraught. I need to work on it I need to overthrow the system. That's in place. I need to change how we do death, and then you have other people who were saying. I have to push it so far down that I can go to an indoor event in the middle of pandemic. So what's the solution? How do we become less numb? The rising death count in our country. Those numbers are actually people with names dreams families. But we just look at the news every day and not uptick big somedays small other days and get on with it. There is a sort of silver lining them. Nobody is saying that there are some bright side took global pandemic, but Kaelin does seep benefits in the way. This virus has laid bare so many problems. What's positive about? This situation is in so many areas of our lives. We've started to go. Hey, wait a second. These systems don't work for everyone. These systems don't work for workers. These systems don't work for people who are unemployed right now. These systems don't work for people who are doing childcare there, so many systems in our country that are not. Built for equality for everyone and are not built in the best way and I think that right now we can say hey, wait a second. The funeral industry is also not working for all of us. With all this pain in all of this death. We've realized we want something better for ourselves. We want a different system. We don't want to pay ten thousand dollars for a funeral. especially if we're low income we don't WanNa, be shut out of the funeral process. We want more. Of In nineteen is giving people, the awareness and opportunity to reform some of the systems that are creating inequalities in the funeral, industry and beyond. And that gives Caitlyn hope. I, am ready to see what this younger generation! Comes out of this like and what kind of activism and advocacy and relationship with us. They will have because I'm I know that. Of course parents are afraid and they want to say immediately if my kids are going to be damaged by this, and they're going to be traumatized by this, and that may indeed be true, but I'm also interested to see the resilience that comes out of it and the new attitudes towards death that comes out of it. Twenty twenty is yearning screaming really for change. You can see it in the news in the streets in the hospitals in the capital. CAITLYN's hopeful that the grief of this moment will cure us of our death anxiety and bring us a few steps closer to reckoning with how we can ensure that everyone can have a good death. Both before their last breath and after. I hope that this younger generation is going to push whatever advocacy myself and my colleagues have done even further because if they can say I essentially grew up in the middle of a pandemic in all this death, and that is made me feel this WanNa do this WanNa change. This one overthrow this system. I'm all for it I, so I wanNA. Have a more hopeful. Sense of what their connection with death can possibly how it could possibly lead change. CAITLIN continues to advocate for death positively on her website, the order of the good death. And in her practice as a funeral director. Although covid nineteen initially took some of the intimacy away from Caitlyn's funeral home. For the moment she started allowing visitations again. Caitlin is doing everything she can to make sure. Families concede their dead loved ones care for them before they're laid to rest and hopefully gain some peace in the process, and that's what ritual offers us is an opening and closing.

Practical pandemic guide for the rest of us
"You need to understand what conserving is for those of you. Who are new to this concept. You get this work today. Hey folks welcome to the blur girl. Podcast I am your host Caramel Horn and I gotta ask. How are you doing? How are you really doing now to be honest? I had an interview with an actor actually scheduled for this week. And I I gotTa admit this week looks very different. From the last time I sat down in front of this microphone and I honestly wanted to acknowledge that. We've had some amazing content out there so amazing interviews club. Quarantines had out the denies but I wanted to give you some information that I hope will help you as well as share ways that you can cope with this shutdown wherever you are so I will get into all of that but I this important message. Cove nineteen better known as Corona virus has spread throughout the world. There are a few ways to help lower the spread of this respiratory disease. Wash your hands. Avoid touching your face including mouth nose and eyes cover your coughs and Sneezes Monitor your symptoms and consult with your doctor. Stay at home and away from other sick people except for medical care. Clean and disinfect. High touch services for more information please visit CDC dot Gov Forward Slash Kovic nineteen. Thank you now before I forget I started a coffee page. Yep I have joined the ranks of creators around the world and started a page to help keep this little podcast and the website going. So if you can please make a donation at Keio Hyphen F. I dot com slash. The BLURRED GIRL THAT'S K. O. Hyphen F. I dot com slash. The girl before I jump into all this let me explain a little bit about where I am where I've been since everything started now for the past two three weeks. I've actually been down in New Jersey. I live in New York Brooklyn New York for those of you. Don't know now. Let me share a little bit about where I've been for the past few weeks Just to give you an idea of what's going on so for the past two to three weeks. I've actually been down in New Jersey. I live in Brooklyn New York for those of you who don't know But I had to go to New Jersey To check on my mom because she's older and had to have her. Pacemaker replaced in the middle of this crazy pandemic. So I'm happy to say that my mom is recovering nicely and she's out of the woods as far as worrying about Mike infection and things like that but my mom is still in that high risk group and So am I as many of you know I'm a stroke survivor? But what many of you don't know is that I also have graves disease. Which is an autoimmune. Disease that your thyroid. It's a form of hyperthyroidism until a great stat on your thyroid. And it's a long story so for the past three weeks. I've been walking around outside with a mask and gloves and I've had people laugh at me. I've had people at a local grocery store by my mom. Talk about me right in front of me. When I was in jail I had another. I yell at me from across the street but I don't think he was well to begin with so he called psycho. But I'm I'M GONNA give him GonNa give him a pass because I think he was having a bad day and that was two weeks ago Thursday when I had to go back to the store to pick some stuff up not a peep. In fact ninety percent of the store people had gloves on and I was not the only person in there with a mask. Now before you guys fill up my comments. I am not hoarding masks. The kind that are healthcare professionals need And they desperately need them. I regularly wear a mask on flights any fight. That's four hours. I usually wear a mask so I have my own group of fabric masks which I wash stuff and my boyfriend uses gloves all the time for his job so I grabbed a bunch of those before I headed to my mom's I also have the ear loop kind Because when you are caring for a sick person you tend to have those so for you talk about me. I am not hoarding things. That people could be using hospitals. Also I'm a hand washing machine and since the Kobe. Nineteen virus can live on closed for twenty four hours and live on. He's been reported live on metallic services and plastics for up to three days. I now have outside close and inside close because since this is an apartment building. I simply can't wash clothes every day So now I have like a bag that my clothes go into 'em they stay there and like because we're not going outside that often after three days the virus is not really on them. I have been some wearing a pair of jeans out to the store and things like that but when I come in. There's no touching anything. There's taking gloves off in a very particular way. There's a whole protocol of things that I do when I might go over this over on tick tock or on instagram. So people can see but there's a protocol I have for taking off my mask my gloves and then not touching services. It's also very important because you're couches also fabric and things like that. It's very important to not come in and sit down from outside so and I know that sounds crazy but when somebody sneezes if somebody looks leases in an elevator. Those particles are just in the air. You don't know what the lending on our lives are looking very different now and I have this whole procedure from when I walk in the apartments that I don't accidentally infect my mother anytime I go out. It's nerve wracking. Sometimes because my mom lives in a building that is full senior citizens that loved to close talk and think that social distancing is kind of rude while they did. I think people are catching on now because of the news. But I've had to close the door and some people are stand in the doorway so that people aren't coming in and it's really frustrating and it's also scary and I'm on top of everything else. This is not my home. I'm living out of a suitcase. I can't you know not my home. My Band is not my blankets and I'm not saying they're being at MOM's is an is an issue. I'm saying that when you're in a crisis you know we kind of progress a little bit. We want turns a little kids. We want our things so our lives have changed a little bit. So I'm saying my mom's and my boyfriend is staying at my house and we'd facetime every day which I know a lot of you are doing with your loved ones and relatives and for those of you who think I have it easy. I don't I've also lost quite a bit of income. I'm a freelance journalist and a speaker and I had two gigs One of which was the northeast. You know I was talking about From previous episodes that obviously has been postponed? I believe it's in December. Now you're going to have to check their website. I'm also a freelance. Contributor to Scifi. Wire I am not staff. I know a lot of you. People think I a fulltime job there but I don't have one column. I had a podcast but I'm no longer on the WHO we but I'm no longer on the WHO we put. I'm no longer are on the. Who won the week? Podcast that was also source of income. So on top of everything else. We had a heater blow in the middle of January which took a chunk out of our savings so like many of you. I'm worried about my mortgage and my health insurance and you know I'm also helping to take care of my mom so this this there's a lot and I and I'm sure many of you can relate to these stories. I've been seeing so many of you talk about this stuff online. But I can really relate I can. I can relate to you if you don't want to go to avert I can relate to you if you've been so busy trying to take care of things and find ways of getting bills paid and get things shifted that you don't want to go to a virtual branch or watched folks talk about how they're struggling to be creative or are or if you're like me you're going to solve your phone if one more person put you on one of those names six things that you're watching in tag six people. At the same time I can relate to you if you're freaking out because you don't WanNa borrow from your retirement plan just to sustain yourself or maybe you don't even have over that plan. I can relate to you if you freak out every time you see some spring breakers talking about they don't care about cove in nineteen because it's only for old people especially if you have immigrant parents and our entire culture is about revering the elderly and not throwing them away. I see you. I'm right there with you. I can relate to you if this isn't hasn't been just like a mini vacation for you and you actually have to take care of people or of that person that you take care of is yourself because you yourself have some type of autoimmune disease or are differently abled or you know are trying to figure out how you're going to get your services because things are shut down. I can relate if all the conspiracy theories aside. You have come to the sobering realization that it's GonNa get worse before it gets better but you know what it's GonNa be alright. It's GONNA be alright. I'M GONNA be alright and so were you. This episode is about giving you some practical ideas about what you can do right now to help yourself financially healthwise and mentally plus some things. I've personally been doing to cope you ready. Okay let's do this unemployment. Start there your job now. If you've lost your job and you don't have Cobra or some form of health insurance. I would suggest that you file for unemployment and you file for unemployment. Insurance many states now have special cove in nineteen expanded enrollment options. You can google that or check. The show notes. I'll be putting a lot of things in the show notes for you today or sign up for the poor girl newsletter. Because I'm going to be dropping a bunch of information in there as well do yourself a favor and apply. I would say early and often a lot of people have been saying that the website for filing for unemployment is kind of outdated frustrating use but by law. They have to answer the phone. So if you have to get up in the morning call them. Put It on. Hold while you're making your breakfast and making your coffee and things like that and it might take a while but you really need to talk to somebody about filing join the freelancers union. You can do this even if you're a performing arts technician that is already part of another union. Like Sag after I ad or any of the others the freelancers union is free. It's free to join. You can just sign up by going to freelancers union DOT ORG and. They've got a ton of resources and grants that they're giving out right now but they have health insurance options. They have grant options and not. Everybody can apply for all the stuff. But you're not gonNA know if you don't read you. Don't research sitting there worrying panicking. I don't know what I'm GONNA do. I don't know how many take care of this. I don't want to get off this stuff from. That's not sit down focused. Do some of the research and I would definitely start with freelancers union dot org. I need to be completely transparent with you about something this shutdown. I don't care what you're seeing on. Tv This shutdown is not going to be over in two weeks and I am recording this on the twentieth of March so this is not going to be over in two weeks. It's going to take even longer after that for companies to recover financially. So if you're a freelancer like me you've got to come up with some other options okay. Another option another resource to check out is while at home. Hashtag while at home. W. H. I L. E. A. T. H. O. M. E. This is an entire resource list and website. That's been put together by a team of volunteers including two ray. Mixson William Donohue Chris Myers buback. Emma Emami on. I'm sorry if I said that wrong and more amazing people at while at home dot org there. It's a huge amount of resources for small business owners freelancers. There's parenting tips. There's places for you to volunteer. And if you're looking for healthcare they have options there to even the census which we're all supposed to be filling out right now but nobody wants to because they don't normally you have time filling out but the most important piece of information on this site is it actually shows you where you can get tested for cove in nineteen. If you're showing symptoms that is information that literally I did not know until I saw the site. Every kept talking about testing stations. All of these people were saying that they were getting tested. I had to be an NBA player to get tested off your member of Congress because literally. I don't know any average people who are getting tested. So yeah this is amazing. And these people have done more at the grass roots level that anyone in government so far so shout out to them. They also have some Amazing financial resources like convert. Kit a lot of you guys know them as the email aggregate site day have a Creator Fund that they've set up. It's a fifty thousand dollar fund to help cover rent childcare medical expenses groceries or anything else Creators might need now. I don't I don't think they're giving up fifty thousand dollars per person. I think that is the sum total of what they have and they're giving it out in increments but you're going to have to go to while at home dot org to check that out. There's just a ton of information there and it is super super helpful so you should definitely check that out again. I'll be putting these links in the show notes for this episode. But if you want to try to apply for some of these don't wait. Okay just get on this health now. I don't want you to forget about your health right now and this is tough. I'm in a tiny apartment right now but I'm going to start taking breaks and go outside and walk around simply because I'm in the suburbs of New Jersey and there are. There's literally like no houses next next to is really so I could like walk around the parking lot or something like that and get a little bit of exercise And there's a bunch of folks offering free workouts online right now Some of my faves are geico strong. Who's posting workouts to try on her on her instagram page. Actually these are going to be instagram related Brittany Jackson over at Brittany Babe. I've been following her for awhile. Itt Any B. A.

In fact she's an excellent shape and she started working out at home because she couldn't afford to go to the gym years ago and she's got some amazing stuff. I do GEICO. Strong Steph is free up on.

But it's really affordable is really cheap and then a lot of folks are working out with Zeus the hip hop Turner. You can find him on Instagram at Zeus. Qa APP SO Z. E. U. Z. E. U. S. Q. I F. as in Frank He's been doing instagram. Live workout sessions and posting those to his page. Those were looked great They are free when they're alive but he does ask for donations at the end. I believe I can't do those simply because I can't jump up and down where I am so I can't use his workouts yet. Oh but if you need a bunch of low impact workouts because you also have elderly people living underneath you or roommates or whatever. Try checking out on Youtube. Go over there check out mad fit. Mad Fit that one's free and they have a bunch of great little workouts. They have like workouts to songs. That are like five minutes and three minutes and ten minutes like that. If you are like juggling things meaning you got you put the baby down and you just WanNa get quick workout in their perfect for that or if you're somebody who needs to take breaks throughout the day it's a great way to work. Stop do a ten minute workout. Come back to work. You know things like that and they also have full half hour forty five minutes stuff as well. When it comes to groceries I get it. I get the impulse to buy canned food and but you really need to buy the fresh fruits and veggies and eat those first One because you'll be helping out local businesses by doing this at and to you really need to save the canned goods for when you can't leave the house for some of you might be now for others that might be in a couple of weeks Also even if you don't suffer from high blood pressure you will if you eat nothing but canned food for four weeks China. Come out the other end of this. A little healthy you know also I just want everybody to recognize that a lot of stores major shopping stores your food town shoprite chagrin unions. You're you know I don't know about acne but a lot of your major grocery stores Kroger things like that. It's not supply. That's the problem. It's demand so they have regularly scheduled shipments that are hitting their warehouses but things are running out so fast if the local stores that the new shipments haven't come in yet so but I'm seeing the local shoprite this. My mom has tons of food no toilet paper but tons of food so I I said this on twitter earlier. A not running out of apple's so by fresh fruits and vegetables. Listen I get it. If you not a Great Cook. Now you have time to learn. There's a ton of cooking channel on Youtube. If you're looking for healthy options on a lower budget definitely check out one of my faves which is mind over munch. This is good if you are if you have a family and you need to feed like have just Fu ready for them. You know whatever. This is a great way to save money on a bunch of food. And if even if you're single I would check her out because all of the food and recipes are sort of like you can make them in bulk and then put them in the freezer and take him out when you need them and not be like all stressed out about it. I actually used to run. A website. Called Savvy Brown. That was all about Green House. He living on a budget and I have a ton of cheap and easy recipes on that site as well. That'S SAVVY BROWN DOT COM S. A. V. Y. B. R. O. W. N. DOT COM. I will put a link to that again the show notes when it comes to shopping. Some of you did not grow up in an immigrant household and it shows. I'm serious. You need to conserve. You need to understand what conserving is. You should have been doing this anyway with those of you. Who are new to this concept. I'M GONNA learn yet so you won't get this work today so when you do go to the store. I mentioned by both fresh fruits and vegetables as well as canned food. I'm saying it again. Also by boxes of Soup Broth why because you can use it to stretch the canned soup that you've already bought or use some of those fresh veggies to make a big pot of soup on your own. I spent like five dollars and made a huge pot of soup last week for me and my mom. She had some flower here and we actually made some dumplings to go into the soup. It was amazing and it fed us for like three days and not just food body products. Like listen the only difference between hand. Soap AND BODY. Wash is about four dollars. Stop buying both used. The body washes hand soap. If you're worried about it not actually. You can use shampoo hand soap and I looked at one you can. Honestly you can use Shampoo Body Wash and eleven when people say that that's grows. Like why would I use shampoo on my body? I'm like where do you think the shampoo goes? When you're in the shower is just hitting your hair. Come on people so you don't need all three. You don't need Hansel Body Wash Shampoo you just don't find a way to use two of those or one f possible in fact if you're worried about something not lasting long enough hop on Amazon and get one of those foaming dispensers you fill it. Like a third of the way we product and the rest of the way with water and boom. You've just made your body wash last like sixty days. I have one of these in my house. I one of these in every room. Honestly if you want my opinion I would spend about twenty bucks on a large container of Dr Bronner's Casteel. Also get it in a getting a sense that you like. My favorites are lavender There's also almonds but dr varieties of different fragrances. But you can use that as hand. Wash Body Wash Shampoo although you will need a good deep conditioner because it will strip everything out of your hair laundry detergent washing soap and honestly I actually spent a whole month as an experiment using nothing but doctor Bronner's for just about everything I was doing in my house and I kept a record of that and I put it up on that other sites so I will leave a link again so you can find out how that how I did that. the other thing is find other ways to reduce the need to go out. If folks in your house keep eating up of your ingredients take over the kitchen for the day like if your roommates and stuff make a bunch of food that you can freeze and so you can have enough to yourself for a while. If you don't want to wait to the end of the week or you know someone go in the fridge you take your food and drink. Lots of water. Also by drinking water at room temperature or warmer like t. The virus doesn't like that And since the virus by the way I read this to obviously covered. Nineteen Mucus inducing. Like people are basically fluid and mucus filling up their lungs and their throats. And that's why they can't breathe so a lot of mucus creating foods like bread and cheese and dairy. Maybe cut back on those for a while. Maybe not have three sandwiches every day Try maybe you know you might try following an anti inflammatory diet. But basically inflammation is often caused by excess mucus in the system and like I said things like milk bread and cheese exacerbate that that's why so many folks are on Gluten Free Vegan diets like yes. It does help you lose weight but it also is keeping the mucus out of your body. It's letting you basically flusher system. I also just have to say I am not a medical professional this disclaimer. I am not a medical professional. I don't claim to be a medical professional. I'm just talking about what I has worked for me. Also sort of the Diet I was sorta raison and some things that I've learned through doing a lot of reading. A lot of my Cova. Did Research has come from interviews. That I've seen with doctors real doctors on the Internet. I will link to one really good one with the head of the Infectious Diseases Taskforce. It's basically in Korea right in South Korea right now in South Korea has been leading the way if you don't know with a fighting the krona virus and and containing it so I will link to that in the show notes as well last but not least. Let's talk a little bit about mental health For me I no longer watch. Trump's updates in the middle of the day. So I get my news in smaller bites. Usually one of two podcasts one is NPR's up first which comes on every weekday at about six am eastern and the other is crooked. Media's what a day featuring accuse Gideon resnick. I love the fact that they don't sound like news. And the give me just enough news to get by and I'm not bombarded you know they both have very factual but you get tired of that. Cnn sounding twenty four hour cycle sometimes. If I want more detail I also subscribe to happen today. What the fuck cabin today. Yes exactly like it sounds. It's a podcast in email new service that started the day trump got elected and has been giving daily updates about the news in smaller often hilarious bites and I find that a little bit easier to handle now as I mentioned earlier When it comes to other mental health programs while at home dot org has some amazing resources again. I mentioned that earlier dealing with depression and other issues. If you're already seeing a therapist try to talk to them by phone or tax. If you can't afford a therapist right now myself I do other things to not lose my mind. There are two APPS I use in particular. I'm a huge fan of binary. Beats for those of you who are wondering what by Naral beats our It's spelled B. I A. U. R. A. L. But I'll be therapy is basically. I feel like it's been out for like a long time but for some reason the past ten years it's gotten really popular but but I'll beat therapy This is from medical news today. But I'll beat. Therapy is an emerging form of sound. Wave therapy it makes use of the fact that the right and left ear each received a slightly different frequency tone yet. The Brain perceives. These as a single sound so basically it was used originally for anxiety and stress related. Disorders is inconclusive. As to you know the full benefits of it but I can tell you for me. I like using it and I. There are certain beats that I like better than others. I can't tell you why that is. There are geeks out there. We'll tell you what gigahertz and everything and why that is but they have minority Beatson. Listen to you on Youtube as well if you want to. Just check it out. But there's some that I can turn one on and it can stress me out immediately like I don't like the sound and there's others that instantly call me down so that is why I'M A fan. The other APP that I use is called relaxed melodies and honestly. I just love playing around in this thing. They have different types of tracks in there. But you could also create your own sound effects and created some mixes. That really work well for me. It's very interactive is very calming and addition. They have this new part of the APP called sleep moves. And it's both a guided meditation and physical movements. That help you to turn off your brain and to go to sleep. I love this one because it starts like you do moves and you're listening to Sounds while you're standing and it's directing you as to what moves to do. Then you have then you moved to sitting then you have to lying down and then hopefully. You're fast asleep. The third APP I used the most actually is called KLOM see. Alm and listen. If you're the headphones on the moment you open the com app you start hearing oceans and breezes. My shoulders drop stress just starts to fall off of me. I start taking deep breaths. It's great they've guided meditations. Which are okay if you're into that I'd rather meditate to sounds They have a high quality of sounds plus tons of nature sound effects. And it's it's really very high quality like I said you've really when you're in the rain forest and you close your eyes. You really feel like you're in the rainforest if you have a really good set of surround headphones it's great. It's great to nap to as well. I actually paid extra to get access to their sleep stories and that is different actors. It's exactly like it sounds different actors and singers literally read you a bedtime story. I'm not kidding. My favorite lavar Burton Yup Lavar. Burton read me to sleep almost every single night. So I will put a link to that as well finally. I just want to let you know. It's okay to not be okay. It really is. There's a lot of people that look like they're having tired of their lives and their partying in the. I'm GONNA get dressed. I do my hair and I'm GONNA do my makeup and that's fine but if that's not you that's okay does not everybody is dealing with the same way. There's nothing wrong with that some days. I'm not okay. Some days I cry some days dancing around like a fool you saw on my first talks video but I will admit that my tolerance for crazy and isolation is probably higher than the average bear and that goes back to twenty thirteen when in one year I was going through a divorce. I almost lost my house. I did lose my dad. I suffered a stroke. Don't worry I'm better now. But and while I was learning how to walk again while I was convalescing rehabbing in Philadelphia. I had a pipe burst in my house in Brooklyn so Idaho leak in whole series of things that happen at my house so the only person that was really around me at that time was my brother because my mother was out of the country and because she was still mourning my dad and stuff. It was a really tough time. And I'm still recuperating my finances from what I went through that year this is like what seven years later. It's tough but not only did I survive all of that. I'm walking fine now unless I'm drunk and then that's so much and I even found a wonderful man who accepts me for exactly who I am and has been such a trooper throughout this. Hi Chuck and is sitting at home without me right now while I you know while we separate and we didn't have to do this but we decided to because he's been going in and out he doesn't WanNa make me sick. He didn't want me to bring my mom there so that we possibly make her sick. We are trying to be responsible during this pandemic and I beg you. I'm begging anybody listening to this that you should be responsible as well so when I tell you will get through this you will and you'll be stronger for it and you might even have a new set of skills to boot. My friend Abell is learning like five languages right now. She's GonNa come out working for like I dunno she's GonNa go undercover after.

Us Now here's my conversation with Jocelyn elk atoms of grandbaby cakes. So let's tell everybody what grandbaby cakes is all about. How did you even start doing what you're doing? I grew up baking cooking with my family. They've really been the inspiration even the muse behind everything. I do particularly my grandmother and just watching her. Just being in the kitchen with her just gave me this profound love or cooking and Baking. And you know. The recipes were passed down from generation to generation. And I just found this profound passion for everything that you know it encompassed and when I got to a point in my career in my life. Where just wasn't excited about going to a nine to five and it was literally a question of what am I going to do? What what is there for me to do? And a friend this was in two thousand twelve was like you should start a blog. You're always baking. You know make the most incredible recipes and at that point it was for me. I didn't know too much about blogging. Didn't know it was a very differently. I'm scape finished his male. I just started sharing recipes. I was like sure I was like I. I had someone on. Fc design like nine dollar website. Simply and I was taking photos with my iphone at the time. The good old days the good old days. Phelan's put the recipe out there. You didn't really edit photos. They were just out. There was just you know it was really just the Zen. It was just about the experience in the love of doing Johnson. What was your day job at the time? I was actually in two different jobs so I was working as a production coordinator and our producer for our have a video archive and I would actually also associate producer. Pbs Specials and so after that I went into Ben. Planning at a fine arts school and I used to plan this huge event or graduating seniors at the college where they had all types of arts in so it was like a mass major event at the end of the year and it was a festival. And so I was doing something. That was very creative. I was doing something that was fulfilling because I I was at the point. Like one of those people who needed to be creatively fulfilled each day in some type of way but it just felt like I hadn't found that a space where wanted to be so you're working in your blogging. When does it pop in your mind that this could be my fulltime job? It honestly didn't even pop into my mind into maybe like six months later when I actually had people visiting the website and I was actually making some money from I was like. Oh my goodness like I can make money doing this. It was something that I didn't really quite understand or know or expect at the time. It was really just a hobby. It was really a way for me to just find something that I really truly loved and then I mean honestly like it really took off like. I was working full on grammy cakes by the early part of two thousand fourteen. So really happened quite quickly and did you have clients. Is that why you were able to make the leap 'cause you you weren't just existing on advertising. No I was not existing on advertising. I had a brand clients also signed a book deal at the very beginning of two thousand fourteen and so just knowing that I really could not commit one hundred percent of myself to harm job and then also write the book I wanted or even expand my brand beyond just what it was point. I knew that I had to leave. And tell everybody The name grandbaby cakes. I know where that comes from. Tell everybody where it comes from in the south usually grandparents call their their grandchildren babies. And so you know out of my big Mama's grandbaby and on top of that like I used to bake. These cakes at work and people were calm cakes. You know because I was young at the time and so I kinda just merged together so Johnson For folks who are just learning about you. What kind of food are you known for her? Sure it's definitely comfort. It has a lot of southern influence. It's definitely a lot of recipes that are vintage Recipes that may have passed down from generation to generation that your grandparents may have made but then also there are a lot of recipes that have more of a fresher. Take on those vintage recipes are really liked to make. All of those lives then. I love your cakes. Every cake you make is just so gorgeous. You're also we'll talk about your recipes and go through your greatest hits but do you take all your photography because your pictures are fantastic. I used to and now I don't you don't take some for you. What people see on Instagram with people see on my website is a mix of my photography? Also some other Assad rivers. So let's talk about the grandbaby cakes. Greatest Hits let's talk about some of the most shared and most popular recipes are my goodness so The recipe though really sort of put grandbaby cake on the map was definitely my real deal caramel cake. It's just always been a hit. There's so many interpretations of what like Chew Southern Caramel Cake? Us and this recipe is really kind of old school. Got Actual like it's not like a stiff Karma but it's like a silky smooth arm that it takes a while to make in fact about an hour and a half to two hours over the stove so it takes a lot of commitment but that cake relief just off would walk us through the different layers and steps of that cake. The first part is a classic sort of yellow Bonilla base layer cake. And so that you know that's just that really kind of Moi's suspicious buttery that. Most people have like their birthdays. Everyone sort of knows that the Saudi cake but he icing is really like he's the killer. It's one of those things where it's like. He can face the love that went into that because that is status fuel of US decides to make that Carmo case. You're putting in time. You're putting in energy all of your all of your emotions. So into that case in the slowness in equality in the effort in this case that case so I have never done a caramel. That takes two hours. The clerk the thing I can think of is like Polenta or result. Oh but that is definitely not a two hour process. Why is this taking two hours because it really just takes I while it's cooked on low? I know some people try to feed it up needs to commit you know you need to make the commitment. I put the ring it like. He got assist there. You've got star slowly you know and and you have to have it on low for to really come together in. That's my aunt beverly's recipe and that's just seeing my family forever and you know she was just so happy when I shared it and and and it's like day like he she's pretty famous words well at Beverly. Thank you so much on behalf of the bomb squad for putting that cake out into the universe all right. So what's another one at? Some point may be like around two thousand fifteen or whatever people start a Colin County Queen. I take that title very seriously. And you know. There's there's definitely something very southern about how and fun tate. I literally have like a Gazillion town face on my website insanely wealthy for just love. You know how it doesn't take a lot of effort especially if you're one of those people that he's decorating cakes. And you know this is one of those you know. Kate's that comes out beautifully and in it looks like you took a lot of time and effort but it doesn't require like the take you know what you would take to the? Carmel case so everything from my free. She's found fake You my ultimate lemon pounds. Which is a huge huge huge hit on my website like it is definitely one of the most popular website. You do. Love a baked. Good with lemon I do love lemon. Yeah my seven a pound cake and that is my mother's recipe and does insanely well. And what's so cool about this avenue it? It just totally changes the texture of the case and and also like the crime is is sort of crunchy but like the cake itself is just so tinder in soft bite into it's crazy it's magic and that has been around in my family for ever more recently. I have like a strawberry pancakes. That really goes insane during the spring and the summer so right now it's popular and strawberry season's just starting that's great yes. Exactly veer are some pancakes. I Adore Lane. Because like you know just. They're so versatile. Pass him like a slice for breakfast. Or you can have it like you know with. Some cream varies for dessert. It's just a versatile that you can just pretty much do anything with you grill it. You can do whatever by thin There are some where I just love the glazed in any becomes sort of one with the recipe. So I think it's sort of it. Depends like some like glazed definitely glaze. I've got half the perfect place for this and then others on like UPN really just eat this plane and it is perfection Joslin. I have never grilled pound cake. What does that even mean? Yeah absolutely I mean it just gives it like this nice sort of Char- like you can put a little butter on the outside of it and just put it on the grill or even in like a grill pan really quickly and just gift those Nice cars and then it's magical it's wonderful. Don't go anywhere. We'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH. Joslin after this quick message. A lot of you know ice cream fanatic. So I'm happy to share that.

Briars CARB smart today. That's BRIARS DOT COM backslash. Cherry bomb back to my conversation with. Joslin bulk atoms of grandbaby cakes. People probably thinking you just do cakes and baked goods but you do savory food yes I do. Lots of slavery I started initially just desserts but I have. I think since maybe like two thousand or thirteen fifteen. I started sharing a ton of savory stuff. There are some recipes on my website back literally. Go crazy with that too like that. The a chicken fried steak. That's incredibly popular. Walk US through that for the folks who are like what. The heck is a chicken fried steak tell everybody sell. It's basically a tinder. Is Steak at that? You bread you. You know huge reg that and then you're gonNA fry that baby up in. Its fried almost like fried chicken. Which is where you get that shaken bride steak from and then it's topped with a free laser all gravy. I haven't had gotten a longtime a good chicken fried steak because a lot of fun. Oh yes and this one's got so much sees me In flavor in every component which is why. I think it's so popular. Would you season it with that? Everything from a little hot sauce to Paprika and Cayenne to really come and give it a little chick and it's just it's just downright delicious and how about the gravy all same thing. It's like the great he's got a nice kick to it And it starts almost with the rue process and then I add a little chicken or beef stock to it just to give an additional flavor and got some garlic in it. It's delicious and you were just about to say the magical words chicken and dumplings not. Everybody does dumplings the same way. How does your family do them? Yes well we actually do it. Two types of ways. Which is why. I'M GONNA come out with another recipe probably in the fall but we do it two ways. We wants out of our family. That sort of does traditional biscuit type. Dumpling Way and You know that's dislike a drop biscuits that's added to your stock base and then that sort of puffed up and cooked over the stove until they're ready in tender and then there's more of a flat dumpling. Which you know. A lot of southern people do as well. We're sort of almost like pieces of pie dough. I'm a fan of both. It really honestly just depends on my mood. I love both equally. And then give us one more recipe. That's gone viral or the folks really love that you put out there Also I would say there are. Have you ever had salmon croquettes I have I have yes mine literally especially during Since things have sort of shut down and people are home cooking so much that recipe has been either number one or number two on my website for the last few months. Oh how interesting. Why do you think that is I think that salmon croquettes just so comforting? You know you can have them for breakfast brunch. You can have them for dinner there. So versatile they're so easy they use mostly like pantry staples. You know. You can use canned salmon if you want like I just think that the ease of them coupled with the comfort of eating it is just something that's made it incredibly ocular now on that Joslin. Have you noticed the comments on your instagram or the comments on facebook or your blog? Have they changed over the past few weeks as folks are home and dealing with different issues? I think so I. I remember originally when a lot of the lockdown started I was sort of at a standstill as far as like what content should be offering my audience right now. Because it's it's just such a strange time for so many people are honestly for all of us and you know. I just wanted to make sure that I was setting the right tone or you know providing needed so when I was asking my audience what they wanted to see if they wanted new recipes if they what types of recipes in you know just what they wanted me to share. The first thing was getting a lot of Wisconsin. They wanted comfort people. You know a lot of times. It was like before that it was okay. Can you give us some healthy spins on this healthy spins on that and then literally the next day they were like we want cake. We want biscuit they're like we want homemade ice cream like all of that sort of stuff. That just made people feel better. I've noticed even when I will try to share even talk about balance that people are like bring on the cake in a one they want to bake. They're at home there with their families. They WANNA take this time to either work on Bayton. Ills are just try these recipes that they've always either pinned on pinterest or saved on instagram for later like this is their time to finally do what I guess so. Jocelyn I wanNA talk about you as a business person pre corona virus impost corona virus. I mean as you mentioned earlier. You know you did make a really successful transition starting with your blog. You got a great cookbook. You do a lot of I mean. At least prior to this a lot of TV appearances you work with a lot of world-class brands including a lot of consumer product brands. You went beyond blogger. And we're doing all these different things and clearly had lots of different revenue streams before this crisis when all this started to go down. What did you start to do regarding your business? Well I think one of the things that helped to shield me from hits right now is the fact that I did have a lot of revenue streams and so I think just having that mentality from the very beginning of this nece understanding that you don't put your eggs all in one basket was just. It's just helped. Because you're going to have ebbs and flows if it wasn't this it would definitely be something else but I did think in terms of publishing. There was something that I started doing about a year ago where I started writing e books and so right away I started thinking about some of the things that I was doing in the fact that I have my daughter harmony in the kitchen with me and just hearing about half parents wanted to. You know figure out other activities that they can do their children who are now at home from school. And it's like keeping them occupied keeping them interested beyond that flakes and Ya playing video games. What else is there to do so? I immediately wrote on an e book for baking with Kids and included so many recipes that are kid friendly that are ordered from beginner level to advance level and I started selling them. I really really responded to that. Well and one of the proceeds helped me in donating money towards unimportant causes right now. I gave money to feeding America and currently. I'm also helping to send lunches outs to essential workers at medical hospitals and just making sure that they feel appreciated during this time ten. Fantastic yes I do at least a like once a week. Talk about the Book Process for the folks out there. Who Don't don't even know how you start to do that. L. For sure. Because I've written a cookbook. I sort of understand a little bit more about how you can order a book with with an e book. I think you have to think quickly you have to think. In terms of content that's already available and content that she can make available pretty quickly because you have the ability to sort of jump on something. That's hot or jump on something. That's important reading right now. You don't have to wait for it to be published. You don't have to wait for you. Know to be edited a Million Times. You can get it done. Get your teams and look at her. You look at it and can get it out to the masses. Pretty quickly so once. We decided that we're going to get this e book together. If was more or less just a process of either adapting concepts that was already pretty kid friendly or doing some additional recipe testing getting images. Getting all of that together and I think we probably got everything completed with a book in about bow to and in it's An Evil Cliff. Twenty five recipes plus two additional recipes with a log. In addition to that I have T shirts on my website. Those on my website for awhile. But there's been an uptick in sales of those at just think being able to spread yourself in as many directions as possible and just making sure that you are continuing to think outside the box. I really think that sorts of times when you're a business owner. You're an entrepreneur is really really cultivates creativity and you know you have to think outside the box to continue to thrive into contains successful during a time like this absolutely hell about your different brand partnerships. I had a couple of year. It was either paused or more. You know postponed until possibly the fall with the contracts already. Done the work already done. So those were Kinda finalized. I've noticed that in terms of you know for instance bloggers probably aren't necessarily hit as hard as other bloggers right now so i. My heart seriously goes out to people in travel or fashion lifestyle. Entertainment those areas. You're definitely I've heard that you're seeing a huge decrease in traffic because they just don't apply to people's everyday lives right now and so then yet you know. Of course on the opposite sides in so many people are home so many people are cooking and so traffic has gone up. A time would just help to balance out lower. Pm's which is the money that a lot of bloggers making advertising tillery with RPM stands for a specific dollar amount that you will get and so that's per sessions on your website and that's also per pages your website and so that number continues to fluctuate especially now because marketing dollars are down or brands are a little apprehensive about spending. Lots of money in marketing. Because they may need that money for other areas of their business so that number has gone down steadily for the last month. But like I said the the last two that is that traffic is gone up and so it's really sort of balance each other out while I'm so happy to see I've just watched for years and so happy at all your success and I hope it continues even in these very challenging times any last words just of inspiration. I mean you've always been a very inspiring person and just in person in your writing and that's clearly part of why people love you so much but just any sort of last words for folks who are just Kinda having some trouble navigating what's going on right now on my gosh absolutely on every morning. The thing that I do in this is like my personal ritual is I listened to gratitude affirmations and I also right Ima Journal gratitude and it has truly helped me to center and to realize even in this crazy time that we are in right. Now where we don't have certainty about anything in life has totally changed as we know it. There are some things that we can ensure grateful for. You know whether it's just the fact that we do have in the refrigerator right now. The fact that can get in the kitchen with a family member or a child and you know cook or bake in create a Moma and experience in a memory that you can take with you for a lifetime. These are things that we may not have been able to do if we were busy. Going to work or busy doing everything that you know. Our calendars have dictated. I realized where myself during this time that I was insanely busy and almost sanely burnt out in a lot of ways and being at home now and like physically having to focus on what is here right now and being in the present has totally changed so much of my perspective in how order my day and and just what I prioritize general and so just taking that time to figure out ways in which you can improve yourself. You know whether it's reading a book you always wanted to read or you know writing the book you always wanted to write or whatever that dream was if you can even take five ten minutes of your day and work towards that you can use this time you know to totally change. You Know Your Life Into. Come out of this better than you were before. That's great advice that even if it's just five or ten minutes of the day put toward that. I've actually started journaling which I haven't done since I was a teenager. And it's so interesting because you know it really forces you. There's something about putting something on paper that forces you to confront something in a way that just about it and talking it in the back of your mind dozen one hundred hours and when I say journaling it's it's nothing it's nothing major. It is a little notebook. Got It some conference and I just you know before I go to bed. Just scribble like two or three pages. I think the first day it was just sort of like half a page and the same themes come up over and over again. That's very helpful and sort of pointing you in a direction that you need to go. If some things are are a little cloudy right now. Oh my gosh absolutely and I I do that too. I have a journal. I'll sit outside on the forge and is even right for like five minutes. Just even just hearing. Just the birds are just seeing the trees you know sway. It's just it's very censoring and I mean just puts you in a present moment for a second. It just really sort of gets you know all the things that we have on our list you know stews and the obligations sorta just added a backseat for even a moment. It really does it really does. I've been I've been writing at night and when I wake up in the morning and it's been very very helpful Joslin. I cannot let you go without asking what you're going to be cooking this weekend. A pineapple case. Ooh And people are like eight year. Probably GONNA eat that for dinner. Sure why not you know us. It's fine and I'm probably GONNA roasted chicken.

So I went in with the gun, but I didn't have bullets in IT and I. It was like in my waist band. And I just gave them a note. The note said. I have a gun free money robbery kaffee money.

I'll be away from him. Can you tell me as much as you as much as you want A. How his behavior begun to change towards like when did you stop to notice that? He was not he may be thought. He just started out like it was really engaged with me and like love to do things with my daughter and I and I was really excited. He paid me tension would go out to dinner and it was just so lovely and he was really lovely and that it just sort of sorted deteriorated where he started controlling me he started like any friend I had. There was a problem with them and then he didn't want me to see them and I didn't know anybody. So I was very isolated and then he sort of isolated me further then started like her smash things next to my face. or he would like punch walls and break mirrors when he was angry. Did you begin to feel trapped? Yeah. I. Felt very trapped because I got a job with the bank, but my pay was cut by two-thirds. So now dependent on him to pay my mortgage. To tell you the truth before this happened to me I felt that abused women were weak. In some way because they didn't just leave I did not understand it is had sympathy for them. I would try to help them when I could but I would see them like go right back to the guy you know. And you know you lose sympathy but this wasn't me like I hadn't been in an abusive relationship before. I'm what do you think you? Learned or started to understand about people who experience this the didn't appreciate full. There's a thing called a trauma. And you. You want to believe that they love you. You've seen it. They love you did things that I saw that he loved me. But it's actually like a whole load of things where. You know you're you're exhausted you you can't think straight you know especially as it gets worse 'cause I couldn't see how to get away from him. I didn't want my daughter to grow up in the situation. Then, that went into a very bad depression. Like suicidal depression so I called the police and I told them. Look. I'M SUICIDAL I need help. So they came in, they took me and they committed to a mental hospital. Hi Martinelli, the I'm from Mexico. Hi My name's Scott. I'm thirty three years old. I live in Brooklyn New York. Suppose Lockdown I. See and he'll conversations about profound thoughts how you life will now change and I must admit Jewish in lockdown is basically eat eat with abandon. So, made a vegetable current delicious source. Source was flying everywhere actually washed the top the war. Whilst this bill held up in there was flashes there were sourced down the front didn't care. Chicken. Picking Ribs with my hand finger licking eating with abandon now has to be eliminated I suppose. As I do have a date is coming up on Friday and he has suggested that we have some food. So now I have to concentrate on how I eat and not what I eat. Sleigh I'm sorry. Sorry. I'm late calling you words film subsidy fine. This next caller I I spoke back at the height of lockdown talking May when people were still doing zoom coals for fun I'm going to call hat. Angie. had. A family quiz and my husband Isla together on the quiz. And it was really good fun and yet drinks things and we went up to bed and we were in bed husband display pin my headphones connecting to his IFA. Ably tape and I wanted to listen to burke. So I got off in Tennis Bluetooth off and when I picked up his pay, he kind of woke up and went to grab all May. Was I'd I'd never let his five had never been suspicious of them. I'm. Just, telling you off and he said Okay and so like down on me to be then over six suspicious when his what softens soul. Messages Been In texting another woman and. He then. sats up such the find least deliver messages immediately. So I couldn't even read the fourth way and. and then it all just kind of unraveled wineries of substitute he about. You know I found out what was going on and? You wouldn't slept in another bedroom. And the next morning we signed the garden. Saturday. and. Just thought he was gone. He hasn't back. I had a psychiatrist over me because of the depression which worsened. He, put me on Anti psychotics and they released me. After the three days with heavy medication. And went into some kind of manic stitch which I've never been manic before and I've never been since then. So I think it would be fair to say that it was a reaction to the medications. And I painted my house from top to bottom and I just went into a manic stage and I wanted to get away from from. I was like stock in the House with him and I thought that if I robbed a bank that they would shoot me or they would take me put me in jail and take me away from him. And what I was doing I was telling everybody everybody I knew I was telling him I'm robbing banks and somebody called the police and told them. And then they came and picked me up. And what was your sentence? I got nine years and nine months. Graham Murray Cheese Guy Eilly full of this. House to have family in, and then this is happened did it's just I mean a distant I will.

Defillo your progressing because you've got all this time we are not having to D. stuff is lockdown meaning that you're feeling. Stuck does she think it's it's it's. A grieving process. More than more than I would be if I was going into the world. Just, having the time to do it. And I see therapist on Zane and she said that grief is like falling down status. Once he leaves somebody you start to full. And you can choose to sort of tumble down the stats. Quickly and it will hot. Or you try and grab onto things and On astaire and Knock your head and you're trying to stop yourself falling you always fall but it just hurts a lot more than to yourself at more damage. And so she's been trying to encourage to. Just, full downstairs fail feel the sadness and I go through it properly. Because it'll be easier than longtime. And when we look forward to the next chapter. When lockdown as left it. What are you looking forward to? When I think about lockdown being over the first thing I think about is sitting out in the sun with friends having glass of wine and having loss. Actually just laughing and things feeling lights again. At the moment everything else so heavy and hard and thick, and I'm forward to just having really small normal. lighthearted. Conversation. Moment every they have people trying to figure out how I'm doing. And it's always on on the phone or on team and I just wanted to be able to just sit in the garden with glass of Rosa talking about nothing greatly with my friends. Just lighthearted normality. Dense. Tell me about getting released. What was not like Family again, seen my daughter Oh. My God. It was. I don't know you feel. So weird it's kind of like like an opera or something like the emotion is so heightened like you feel like it's not real. Like when you see like safety the abandoned love. or or something, but it's up onstage, psych? Faraway. that. was how it felt. It felt like it wasn't real that it was like a stage show. But it but it, but it was really really good. You're like afraid it's GonNa end at any moment. Were released is it ten years ago? It's exactly yeah. About ten years ago, and that was after being imprisoned for about ten years here nine years lean months, and that's a long time to be away from your daughter. Is that little? How's your relationship now? Well actually, it's not too great at the moment it was fine she lived with me and I don't know something's kind of happened. Do you think that she understands? Any of your reasoning for. What was going on with you at that time clear honest I, think. That I felt so guilty and so bad. About abandoning her. You know I think when we did talk about it I tried to explain to her why you know what happened. And? I think I should have listened more to what happened what? What she went through. I really think that my error. I mean I'm here I'm in her life and she knows my door's always open. So when she's ready, maybe it'll take her having a child who are. I. Don't know I don't know but I would like to be close with again. So. But I'm when she's ready much. She's ready. I'm here. Like I said, it was a long time ago I spoke with Angie.

muggers from Brooklyn New York but they were founded in Tehran Iran Eh yeah cloud files with his friend and bandmate Tony is our and yes they will rock out let's get started with it's better without you it's the muckrakers on world cafe opponent Yeah Sir yeah aw Nice Yeah yeah the first two questions one that's awesome that your parents want you to go be a musician that yeah is already the minority secondly what was what was pop music culture and John on drums awesome thank you so much for coming in I wanna I wanNA connect with connect all the dots and how you guys met each other but I'd like to start with you because the because Roy English is English language so it's meant to be that's another because of the government because of all those things that they don't want you to just like express yourself as the way you wanted to I think like just a second growing up in the nineties early two thousands what was life like where were you getting a lot of rock and roll in your life because you make some pretty crazy rock and roll thank you Zeke is a lot different but there's a lot of people playing guitar and there's a lot of bands are playing shows and all this stuff but I just didn't feel good yes there was a lot of rock and roll in our house because because of my mom and dad always there like music both both music lovers so I just start playing guitar when I was fifteen and like my mom and founded in Tehran Iran according to Your facebook page way back in two thousand fourteen that's pretty incredible story can we start with actually life in Iran ah I used to follow him on soundcloud why like four or five years prior to when we met my father is Iranian of two you're on when I was five wow I grew up there went to school there all the way back to New York before going back and forth to America that's the muckrakers thanks for listening to the World Cafe My name is Kaleo Gentlemen Nice to meet how you guys doing we're doing excellent excellent Amir and my first question is for you the smoking performance out there could you introduce the rest of the guys in the band so Chris on Rhythm Guitar here and Tony my parents were not religious people but there's like so many religious people I don't know what to say about this honestly I grew up till we're like always China's like okay you need to just take this thing series and just go wherever you WanNa go and play your music hold on Farsi at least I don't like it so you guys had a friendship Tony before you moved here how did you guys meet and start sharing music to with one another in Iran like I mean is it was very different for the United States like you were a lot of kids learning guitar or was it a different instrumentation yeah it's it's a lot different and rock music pop music but if you WanNa play shows if you WanNa go on tour you have to play you have to sing in Farsi if you wanted like he alert Hungary but they don't WanNa yet they want they don't they they just they're peeking peeking over the wall or whatever boundaries there is but they're also Iran can you tell me a little bit about what just culturally it was like growing up in Toronto it so so culturally Tehran it's a to play there because the this is the music that I wanted to play all the time and it was like I didn't want to censor anything that I was trying to play because another reason I didn't WanNa play like you can't play rock music in Iran I was GonNa say what's the scene like there there's like so many bands random bands played that's what I was actually about to ask you a little bit of an experienced jumping back and forth between American what did you observe culturally from my observation is hiding they don't WanNa get caught you know what I mean so any wrong growing up like for good example if you had a tape cassette tape that was not start hanging out and started hanging out pretty much three months I was there it was every day we were hanging out and jamming you know we we talked a little bit about the music scene really mixed of a because before the revolution you have your parents were all from before revolution in it was a different Iran was a different Tehran governments you can buy weeping and all these things to go to like watch youtube or facebook and twitter and early eighties early nineties yeah there is a we had we had a we had a dealer for vhs he will come to your house with a suitcase and but I had just started living in New York and Yeah and then I want to try on a trip to Iran visiting my family we we level and things like that if you yeah so that's thank you for thank you for painting that picture that before election before Donald Trump Everything was going good and I was so happy about the whole case so we and I told my largest make everything like please just work as much as you can and make this process faster because I don't feel good about this and exactly that thing happened coming in Persian Farsi so

Just the history of fashion is a production of iheartradio ever seven billion people in the world. We all have one thing in common every day. We all get dressed lock into addressed the history of fashion podcasts. That explores the WHO what when of why we where we are fashion historians and your host April Callaghan and Cassidy Zachary equerry welcome to the show today dress listeners. On Tuesday we featured an interview with Dana Thomas about the cost of fast fashion and today we get get to highlight a designer actively promoting its antithesis slow fashion so data and I talked about slow fashion on Tuesdays episode but but as fast fashions foil slow. Fashion essentially stands for everything that fast fashion does not slow. Fashioned is about sustainable ethically produced clothing high quality clothing that will last yes but clothing that is also made in a way that does not harm humans animals or the environment in today's guest Carina. Emmerich is the fashion designer and founder behind the New York. City based Label Emi and she is an inspiring designer actively working with a sustainable sustainable fashion and slow fashion movements she is a fashion designer. Yes but also as we will hear. She's an artist and an activist and I actually had the pleasure of seeing her work earlier. This here at Santa Fe in the market in Santa Fe New Mexico and as ninety eight year history. Millions of people from all around the world attended the Indian market which is an annual three day event event that brings together native American artists from all across the country. And it is one of New Mexico's most highly anticipated art shows and it's fashion show as you know casts is one of its highlights. What was it like? I mean. I've talked a little bit about it earlier this year. But this is actually the first year that I've actually gone. And certainly now on my annual calendar it was absolutely incredible. There are so many talented designers present. Their work one after the other on the runway. But but I have to say that Christmas show was the one that stood out the most to me. You know. This collection was beautiful. It was made from up cycled men's wear natural fibers. Her pieces are impeccably made and she really has this way with combining patterns and colors that produces visually striking effect but her show is also so incredibly powerful because of this message that she was relying. And we're gonNA hear all about the inspiration behind the show because of course green is here with us today. Carina corinna welcome Krino. Welcome to the show. Today it's such a pleasure to have you here with us. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me today now. I'm hoping that you can and tell us about yourself a little bit about your background how you came to fashion. And what inspired you to create this fabulous line emmy so My work work is really built on the backbone of expression art and culture weaving art and design into one. I take a lot of my inspiration is a mix of contemporary art and Indigenous Art and traditional practices myself. I'm in descendant of the coast. SALISH territory puyallup tribe on my father's side so a lot of my work is inspired by you know that indigenous culture and my family and I have currently been working building my brand based out of Brooklyn New York With a strong focus on ethics sustainability and responsibility in the fashion industry. And you have like a first memory of fashion that you wouldn't mind sharing with us or how you kind of knew that you wanted to be a fashion designer. Did you have a moment where you you realize that. Yeah so I actually you know. My sister had a lot of marie-claire very clear magazines. And I would rip out all the pages and plaster my walls with kind of these fabulous images and before I really really knew what of being a fashion designer meant. My Dad was actually an art teacher when I was growing up. So we spend a Lotta time doing art projects and I remember consciously making the decision of taking taking you know using my artistic talent and wanting to use that to make clothing so the first thing I ever made actually was my jingle dress US regalia which is a jingle in powerhouse. That was the first dress I ever made. And I remember standing at the kitchen table kind of creating this garment with me and my mom. I had the measuring tape around my neck and just thinking like okay. This is who I'm supposed to be so I kind of remember that visual often. That was in my freshman year of high school actually and for those dressed listeners. Who might not know? What a jingle dresses would you mind explaining the significance? Yes the gene gene. The Jingle dresses like a prayer dress or a healing dress man. It's used in power regalia. Plows are kind of like a gathering of all different nations of indigenous S. people so the Jingle address is address that's covered in Copenhagen lids which is funny so they're rolled Copenhagen's which is a chewing tobacco and and they are rolled into these jingles? And you can have up to like three hundred sixty five jingles on one dress to really really heavy dress but the thought behind hind is that it's a healing breath so you put all these prayers into this dress when you dance. These prayers are released. Healing is released into the world based on the sound based on the prayers that you put into while while making this so incredibly beautiful. I just went to my very first gathering of nations here in New Mexico last year a. and all of the art and beauty and everything that was on display. There was just so incredibly special and such a cool experience for someone. Who's never done it before? But I mean I think it's safe to say that your business is part of the Fashion Revolution Movement. You're actively working transition the fashion industry from fast fashion and it's disastrous repercussions to an industry. That champions sustainability ethically produced clothing clothing. Can you tell us a little bit more about Your Business Model and also the role of up cycling in your design and production process because you make some incredibly cool and special pieces. Oh thank you Yes so I am kind of coincided with a fashion revolution. It's a it's a movement that seeks to create you know a fashion industry the values people and the environment and creativity all on equal measure with Prophet. So it's not just about capitalizing it's about really paying attention engine to wear your garments are coming from how they're being produced. So I made a commitment to myself first of all and to my customers that I would be completely completely transparent about my production and sourcing choices. So I think in this day and age there's no longer a traditional fashion designer roadmap and we all have choices now in the way that we choose to consume in the way that we choose to create so I work mainly in recycled and reused textiles thousand fabrics as well as using up cycling in order to eliminate as much textile waste as possible during my design process. So one of the things that I do do you often. I will go and volunteer my time at textile recycling plants in order to acquire fabric. So if you do like three hours of work than you can take home five pounds of fabric for free. And that's the way that I've produced a lot of my collections which is kind of good because of eliminates might cost uh-huh you know just the Using recycled textile fabrics from top New York fashion houses. So I- volunteer my time on my last collection that I worked took actually eighty percent up cycled. Men's work wear and it was all hundred percent natural fibers so I focused now. I'm trying to focused on using one hundred percent. Cotton fibers one hundred percent wool fibers and really honing in on the life cycle of garment. Thinking about you know starting with production all the way to decomposition of garment so using one hundred percent natural and recycled fibres. It really cuts down the the environmental impact that my clothing line is having on the environment. Yeah and you're you're obviously also making clothing that's going to last the test of time array it's GonNa last somebody their lifetime and you actually also build your all your pieces custom order right. Yes so I do instead of Doing production runs. I make everything as it's ordered so then that way I'm at eliminating. Also you know mass waste. I worked for a while while doing Department stores I had some of my collections in department stores and that was very eye opening to me and it was all part of this learning process access so really seeing you know what goes into the production process and how much taxation waste that. You don't have control over your dropping things off at your production facility each and leaving and then you know you don't know what's happening to the waste the waste of your fabric so I've decided to cut that out only do made to order so as soon as I receive ordered than the garment is made so call and then you have complete control over your company and your product so you are an artist as you've mentioned fashion designer but you're also an activist and I was first introduced to your work this past Santa Fe Indian market and the market's annual fashion. Show and I think it's actually really this up cycled menswear line. You were just talking about but your collection had this particularly powerful conclusion. And I'm hoping you can tell us about the inspiration behind the collection action a little bit more and how fashion can also be used as protest. Yeah so I think you know as artists and designers were really storytellers. There's so were given a platform to kind of share a story and share a feeling and make a statement and protest dressing has been a long-standing tradition from you you know women wearing all white and solidarity with the suffrage movement to now we have the why we wear red campaign calling attention to missing emerged indigenous women girls Trans in two spirit. People Mike Election at Santa Fe Indian market was called Anna Dramas and that is a term to describe fish that travel from the up up river to spawn. In freshwater like Salmon Salmon is number one food source for my travel region and coastal territory. And it's really kind of like the basis this of our life form as human beings if you think about it. So salmon really symbolizes abundance and fertility and prosperity and renewal. Much like women do. Oh and women was the focus of this year's Santa Fe Indian market so I wanted to create a duality between what's happening to the decrease in wild salmon in Juxtaposition Shen with this epidemic of missing murdered indigenous women. You know there's an epidemic going on. I urge everybody to really look into it. There's over five thousand cases cases that are unresolved of native women who have gone missing from urban areas and reservations. So a lot of the work that I put into this collection was is to call attention to that and it was also really about you. Know the rise of indigenous women much like the rise of salmon and it's often said that what happens to the earth happens to the women so the focus for this collection was. I wore a t shirt. At the end of the runway. That said repatriate resist rise and the focus is on. REMAI- trading reading as indigenous women and reclaiming our representation in today's society and really stepping away from this kind of overtly sexualize. Be You like all these issues that we have with. You know people dressing up in costume. And and and the way that people think that indigenous women are these like docile creatures. Are Her you know on these like silly stereotypes So it's really about us. kind of reclaiming reclaiming this space in this world. You know to say that we're still here. And we're here in two thousand nineteen and you actually leading perfectly into my next question because as you mentioned as an indigenous indigenous designer. I'm hoping you can speak a bit about cultural appropriation. Kind of stereotyping of native people. That happens and it's a rampant problem in the fashion industry especially which it is twenty nineteen and yet we still have all of these issues. Why is it especially detrimental to native American cultures? You know first off. I want to say okay. Thank you for asking why I think. A lot of people Spend a lot of time focusing on who is appropriating and I think that talking about why it's such an issue is so much more important. So authenticity is really highly valued but very misused in the fashion industry And especially when that comes most representation of natives and I think that's a big part of the platform that I've taken on as designer as to speak about these issues so I it come from a family that was sent to Indian boarding schools. They were set in place with the idea. Ideology of you know. Kill the Indian. Save the man all of our Regalia all of our clothing. Everything that we knew was taken away in stripped away from us they were forced in Indian boarding schools separated separated from their families in order to assimilate to white values and practices. It was federal policy to remove children from their families. We're literally forced away from traditions language clothing and anybody that could pass down that knowledge to us. So that's one of the reasons that it's really big deal in native communities. Nice to see people appropriating the things that were stripped from us and basically outlawed and it has really only been legal to celebrate being native eight of in the United States for the past forty years When the American Indian Religious Freedom Act was passed and to put that in perspective? That was the same year that my sister was born. So it's really not been that long so to take you know for designers and people in the fashion industry to take long traditions. Shen that we're now trying to kind of reinvigorate and and put more life into and people are taking them profiting off of them when it was ripped away from us and told it wasn't okay. That's kind of where the huge problem is. There's a lot of trauma behind seeing these things represented in the media. You know it's also so a big problem. We just passed Halloween recently and like the like red faces a huge problem as well and for some reason it still societally societally accepted for people to dress as Indians. It really really does. Just blow my mind that this is still a thing. And it's really to contributing to this kind of modern-day genocide of our culture and making it seem like we are still mythical creatures or something that didn't exist when the community is really really thriving today right. I mean I mean you still see things like the Washington redskins or I don't buttar branded as romanticize native American woman on the cover and people like you said it's incredibly it's two thousand nine thousand nine hundred yet. We still have are confronted with all of these backwards racist stereotypes and like you said they're incredibly harmful harmful for many many reasons and I am curious to what your opinion is about. Is there a difference between because people ask this a lot. Is there the difference between cultural inspiration and appropriation can designers be inspired by native motifs in cultures and not appropriate or is that not even possible. I think that's a really leap. Tricky topic to walk around. But I do think that there's a possibility of the answer. Being pretty simple you know as designers we do collaborations all the time and you know one design house will do a collaboration with another design house. So I don't understand why collaborations aren't happening with indigenous designers. It's it's very rare. That a design house who will do a collection inspired by you know a tribe or a nation will actually reach out and it's not just about getting the okay okay. It's about like hiring people to your team to work together so this collaboration you know is about Shared Prophet. So why isn't that happening with tribes nations. How can there are shared profits? And how come you know. People aren't being hired on to be in these design houses. I live in an apartment in Brooklyn New York. You know it's not but it's it's not somebody that's unreachable. We're all on the other end of a phone line or an email chain or an instagram. Dm You know so. It's it just it blows my mind that that we're not really in these rooms where these decisions are being made. And if we are it's just such a miniscule amount to the point where the design houses aren't really learning how to do it in a way. That's respectful and not appropriating right and the answer to this is dressed listeners to buy I from indigenous fashion designers like yourself who are doing incredible beautiful important work and we're coming to the end of our time together but before you go so I'm just curious what you think. The future fashion looks like. I do feel like we're at a crossroads here with with a lot of different things and the fashion industry has to change range. Do you see it changing. How do you see it changing? Yeah I mean this you know this is something that it's so hard to overcomplicate. I'm I'm not. I'm not a monolith versus tangible practices. I don't have all the answers and the only thing that I can say is that you know the more that I learn the more that I will share that with You know my the base some people that I have in my network but I think that the answer can be really simplified in just saying you know the future era fashion is that our garments should be made in a safe clean and fair way and that's the easiest way to go about it and the details will come but we need to make that decision even now it you know. The responsibility falls in the hands of fashion designers but it also falls in the hands of consumers. We all need to be more ECO. Oh ethically conscious consumers the clothing anything we actually purchase and consume in our lives. We really should think twice about it. Everything we eat it all so it really extends you take responsibility for your life and I think it goes without saying that designers like yourself are the future of fashion designers like you in this world. The future fashion is bright. You're incredibly inspiring and I really wanted to just thank you for taking the time to be here with us today. Thank you so much.

The square to Kalisa Izquierda was born on February eleven nineteen eighty nine in Woodhall Hospital Brooklyn New York Gustavo. Her father was a Cuban immigrant who had immigrated to America no with aspirations to become dance teacher and our mother Awada was a pure Puerto Rican raised in Brooklyn. They met at a Fort Green homeless shelter two years before a lists birth okay so that we're both homeless no they're Gustavo worked part-time as a cleaner in caterer caterer yeah wow that was a nice homeless. Shelter must have been Dan Milonga think of soups and stuff at yeah. I know personal caterers. A Waldo was living at the shelter because she had been victimized and that's throngs name yeah had he pronounced that again Awada a wilder like a while ago sure she had been evicted from her apartment. She shared with their previous partner. Ruben Rivera there were victims is being unable to pay rent in part caused by her extensive usage of narcotics. You Salvo and Awada were temporarily temporarily together but Gustavo lifter when he was was homeless yeah of it whenever he found out that she was irregular user of crack cocaine during the time allowed was pregnant with <hes> Ilesa because of her drug use she we lost custody over to eldest children Ribbon Sinoe in Casey so she had to Jovan already. Yeah was homeless with them doing drugs. She got you got pregnant had her. I guess she moved in with him. <hes> I guess but they're not together now so when they were get our beliefs but mom she lost custody of them to her own family in January nineteen eighty nine being your frequent drug user when Elissa was born full custody was given to the Father Gustavo it appeared that Gustavo was a very caring father to Elissa one family friend even said she was his life he would always say she was his princess in Nineteen Ninety Ninety Gustavo in Rhode Elissa in preschool but is <hes> constant ailing health complicated his ability to pay for a lists schooling well one day because she was such an outstanding student teachers introduced her to one of the schools patrons prints Michael of Greece in nineteen ninety three yeah when he arrived Elissa jumped into his arms and stay with him the entire day at the end of the day he offered to pay for listen to go to Brooklyn brand school until twelfth grade she would express her. Thanks with drawings or notes. What's she would send a him? The same year Elissa was enrolled in preschool. A social worker had said that Awada had gotten better and beat her addiction in November nineteen. ninety-one Awad Lopez was given the right to had had unsupervised visits with her daughter Eliza who said that she was heavy. Be Addiction a social worker. She was awarded her custody of of Elissa every second weekend and she she had two older children now think because because if not I'm not seeing why she would be you know starting to have one. Oh the custody still got taken from from her. I'm not sure I think that the weekend visits it's my include them to actually yeah <hes>. Where was I that she was given unsupervised visits? We visits yeah a wildest two oldest oldest children informed relatives that Lissa would be being in neglected by her mother in stepfather daring her visits okay so I had those jeff she did but the relatives did not inform warm authorities Melissa's father an teachers they did notice bruises and other sons of physical mistreatment when she would return from these unsupervised visits. One of the locations of elicits injuries stories was her genitalia. She told them that she that <hes> her mother repeatedly hit her and knocked her locked her in cupboards adding that she never wanted to see her mother again. And how was she now. She was young she was still pretty young like in preschool and now 'cause shoes. That's hard you know for yeah say her father also noted that Elissa ahead begun bid wedding in addition to losing control over bowels which is always a man that is a sure sign that abuse yeah that's going on mental physical. Em would regularly experience nightmares upon upon learning she was to be in the custody of her mother for even short periods of time so where's the social worker now through all this not really doing much. That's what another relative said that Eliza would always vomit upon her return from these visits and refused to enter Bathrooms Gustavo and teachers informed authorities about the abuse <hes> Elissa officer total social worker her about this and our father applied in nineteen ninety two to have a wilderness visitation rights taken but of course the court road that she could continue only conditions that she not strike or Horn <unk> her daughter okay but it already is very much evidence that she's doing that. I know they just don't and don't care with Shay should be going on happened to do drug tests screens and all of this at this time especially if you if the child was you lost her custody because you were addicted to drugs and then you're giving the first report I met you should be looked into it should be supervised visits and also I'm not hearing anything about drug screening which should be happening exactly because I don't care if a sofa worker science she kick the habit because so no notion yeah they don't really know but anyways on in her father applied in nineteen ninety two to have a well while visitation rights taken oh yeah allred that <hes> but <hes> in Nineteen ninety-three Gustavo Izquierdo foreign plans to relocate with with Elissa to his native country which is Cuba but I bet that's not gonna fly well. He is known to have purchase airline tickets for himself and his daughter with the travel date. Being may twenty six nineteen ninety-four for however in May Gustavo was admitted to the hospital with acute respiratory complications which he had lung cancer. How old was he? I'm non exactly sure he died on May twenty six the same date that he plans to travel to Cuba with Elissa okay super freaky and also super tragic because I can tell you that it's not not gonna go up. He'll at all probably from there well upon hearing the news of Gustavo's death the director of Elissa School Phyllis Bryce contacted a family court judge to express the grave concerns about himself herself and numerous members of the school staff as to the child safety should her mother gang custody of her a while Auto Lopez application to receive permanent custody of Elissa was approved in September nineteen ninety four but she was awarded Elissa while she took her out of private school where Elissa Lissa was seen to be withdrawn emotionally when she took her out of private school and then she started attending Manhattan's Public School and they are she was seemed to be withdrawn emotionally disturbed uncommunicative uncommunicative would frequently urinate and she was thriving at the other schools yeah yeah and what I don't understand if you're GONNA beat the child or whatever if you don't have why ah fight for the custody or get the custody if you obviously don't want them I don't know while the principle of the school noted that Eliza had numerous bruises walked with a pair difficulty and had evidently evidently began tearing out sections of her hair by this time a wild it was known to head on US crack cocaine again. Oh so I guess she didn't completely early. Beaten yeah all took US Atta public schooling and took no effort to enroll hor in any other school. Some of the abuse that took place upon Elissa was witnessed by her siblings sewers repeatedly Johnston kicked was made to eat her own feces or forced to drink ammoniac heated water. She was also she also used her hair as a mob inflicted burns earns owner head face and body and sexually violated her both Badgley Inane Away with a hairbrush in toothbrush walters altus partner Carlos Lopez who was also a heavy user of drugs is known to have repeatedly physically abused and neglect elissa inner to older siblings primarily due to the fact act. None of the three were actually his biological children Carlos Lopez was jailed on November fifteenth in relation to a violation of parole seven days later on the evening of November Twenty Second Second Awada phone one of her sisters Mercy Torres to report that Eliza was laying on the bed with fluid which was brain fluid leaking from her nose and now Lopez also told her sister that Eliza when not eat or drink will I guess not not terrain sle too yeah I know Torres then insisted that a while to take her daughter to the hospital in which she replied I'll think about it after she finished cleaning the dishes the following morning a while contacted a neighbor. The sister didn't go over to the house. I don't think so so now okay. Every single adult is coming to any of this child's life just as much to blame to me to me as the mother yeah I know well <hes> awhile wild contacted a neighbor whom she invited to view Melissa's lifeless body because that's what she did too. That's why not will upon being unable to locate signs of of live this neighbor total wild to call the police. Don't even tell her will move away all understand that windshield he refused to do so in response. The neighbor immediately called the police an Dan and violence as a wild threatened to commit suicide. Once Awada was in custody. She confessed to throwing Elissa headfirst into a concrete wall two days before calling her neighbor. She said that elicit talker walk after this incident probably not Yano and she shot tried. Actually I watch the video she tried to blame it own Carlos in which he was jailed at this time and it did not fly by the there were like how how is he gonNa do this because he couldn't possibly do. He's he's jailed at this time so lousy rushing didn't blame it on her other children and she would not take responsibility of it. Mainly O C can finally confessed to it but I'm not sure if she does have the other children because if she does seems like one of them. Liam would have said something to somebody. Hey there's my sister's lamb pretty dead and the bed at our island. She said that Elissa didn't talk her walk. After after this incident when an autopsy was done on a lists body it showed broken fingers one bone was even protruding through the skin damage to internal organs deep welts and Burns across her head face embody her generally Taylor in rectum showed evidence of trauma including tearing forensically. It was proven that injuries have been sustain over over a prolonged period of time. ELISSA is scared. Owes funeral was here held on November Twenty Ninth Nineteen Ninety five the service was directed by the referendum Linda Johnny Augusta Nellie who informed the estimated three hundred mourners in attendance that Eliza had been murdered not only by her mother but by the silence of many by the neglect of child wear CEO Welfare institutions and the more moral mediocrity that has intoxicated our neighborhoods analysis casket remained open throughout the ceremony a single you'll read rose was placed into her hand. Her coffin was filled with white flowers and a Barbie doll that was given to her by our father which was known that she had chair was is placed by our body many mourners place additional flowers toys stuffed animals and notes of sympathy an-and Upon her coffin prior to her casket being closed and our Barrio at Cypress Frisco Cemetery elissa gravestone bears a plaque in which it reads world. Please watch over the children on June twenty fifth nineteen ninety six a water Lopez plead guilty to the second degree murder just second degree Maria of her daughter in a hearing hail before George Alvin Slesinger had the New York State Supreme Court on the advice of her attorney <music> Danielle Allen Lopez pleaded guilty to this deal offered by the prosecution team with the knowledge she would become eligible for parole after serving fifteen years imprison really wow because and I don't really care how others feel that this could be wrong but all that was done to that little child. Let's let that abuser her and killer go to jail. ENJOY FREE TV free food exactly free room and board Free Hill. Let's even let her get a frigging diploma. Yeah you know and then get out help. She could come matal lawyer exactly and then lock other people up for and I'm sorry but I don't feel that they need. They don't deserve people I've had rights like were given them. No the following month judge Schlesinger Sinister Wall Lopez to a term fifteen years so life prior to form or sentencing judge slesinger openly criticized the child where I just cannot hardly fair welfare welfare but I'm so just can't hardly get it out by that welfare system within New York stating we have not created procedures to do everything necessary to to protect the young and vulnerable in this society. The system has failed to protect our babies and don't tell me how much it cost if anything is to become this horrendous tragedy it will be that we gave priority to these babies. Although awhile to Lopez initially became eligible for parole in two thousand ten she has remained incarcerated operated since August nineteen ninety six Lopez was most recently denied parole in July two thousand eighteen and our next scheduled parole hearing is to be held in July twenty twenty has a the two thousand nineteen. She remains incarcerated at the maximum security bid for heels Correctional Facility for Women Own October Twenty Ninth Nineteen Ninety six Elissa Stepfather Carlos Lopez is was sentenced to serve between one and a half two three years in prison Toronto consecutive with the sentence he was serving at the time of lists death. This sentence was in relation to one specific specific instance of physical abuse standing from October thirty first nineteen ninety-five in which he had repeatedly Bang Elizabeth's head against a concrete wall all in front of her siblings although Carlos Lopez pleaded guilty to this charge of attempted second degree assault claiming he and not actually assaulted Elissa but had opted to spare his children the emotional trauma of having to testify against him because he really cares about their emotion exactly it doesn't give crap but anyways judge slesinger rejected his claim <music> outright adding that the prosecution team had lar- largely chosen to charge Carlos Lopez with discharge to spare Eliza siblings any further psychological or emotional trauma. I'm pretty sure that their past that it's like everybody's against the children. It doesn't make any sense I mean but their past the moshav you know yeah. They also don't even need to be. They don't have to be in the courtroom. I meant they've already gotten their testimony. They don't have to be true when he weighs the public was so outraged about elicits death saying that the mother Awada had been on drug steering all the abuse loose and the system did nothing about it. There were so many concerns for lists safety but nobody did a damn thing about it not even the child where welfare authorities and an update from social worker Alaba has beaten her addiction again yeah right whatever that's pretty messed up the America's like nothing the judge saying that did nothing with annot and people can say okay yes. They're underfunded. They're over word but you know what then you don't have after going say oh hey. She needs visitation because she's beaten our. Thank just don't say anything. Let them still think that she's addicted exactly that disease time to do that. You've got time to whenever they say hey. She's pulling her hair. She's pissing on herself. Yeah that doesn't make sense to me okay well today. I'm doing a little something different got two little short disturbance stories that have found and I'm just going to read those today. Okay there this this one is from the <hes> The star telegram and spout a mother arrested in babies. They're police arrested arrested a woman after she told authorities that she severed her eleven month old daughters arms and her plano apartment. The infant died at Plano Medical Center. which is less than two blocks from the babies home? At the fairway apartments in the seventeen hundred block of Colt Road police identified the mother as Dena Schlosser thirty five of one one time Fort Worth resident who they said had been charged with capital murder Noah but you always kit the weird names on saucer authorities did not release the child's name Monday and they said they were not sure what was used to cut off the child's arms schlossers husband was at work and the couples to other daughters ages six and nine were at school during the attack according to the Associated Press authorities found Dena Schlosser thirty five and fatally injured baby on Monday after the child's father called a daycare center and asked them to check on his wife and daughter you. How can you do that? They're how can you possibly cut off your child arms at a stone understand that about people daycare workers called nine one one after talking to the mother and I'm one one operator then called the mother the nine one one operator Ash Lahser if there was an emergency according to non one one tapes released by the police and Schlosser calmly responded. Yes exactly what happened. The non one operator asked. I cut her arms off. Schlosser replied as the him he touched me played in background. God bless you cut her arms off. The operator repeated. She answered authority said that when they arrived at the apartment they found the baby and a bedroom with her arm. Cut Off Schlosser covered in blood was sitting in her living room. She was not trying to hide at all. The family was investigated by child protective services offices in January shortly after the baby was born. I don't know about trust them out. There great having heard yeah this Lahser reportedly left the baby alone in the apartment and was running down a street. Someone Solomon called the police and then when we got involved a C._P._S.. Worker followed up with the family and monitored to make sure Mama's following up with a mental health professional there was no indication nation of violence or abuse S- Lahser had symptoms of Postpartum Depression Schlosser was hailed in the Collin County jail. He's state law prohibits inhibits police from saying whether Schlosser had a criminal history. Let's protect the criminals of course C._P._S.. Spokeswoman said that they're never were any concerns earned with the father. In fact he had always been very appropriate and very cool operative the workers were going to interview the other children and the dad and try to determine whether the other the children need to be in C._B._S.. Custody on non-processed say maybe yeah maybe definitely <hes>. I just can't believe it. She loved those girls said outs of a neighbor. Every time you saw her she would be so loving toward them. Postpartum depression occurs when in hormonal changes during pregnancy affect neurotransmitters in the brains adopter Jae crowder assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas crowder says symptoms include loss of sleep appetite or interest in usual activities. If this last for only a couple of weeks the condition is called sudden baby blues but beyond that point a lot of depressive symptoms are considered abnormal he he said that women with severe cases of postpartum depression usually do not hurt anyone but at some have suicidal thoughts that occasionally extend their babies in other words a mother may feel she would be better off dead but there's a loss of the EGO boundaries and people have trouble telling where they end and where another person begins router said many such mothers are ashamed of their feelings so they don't seek help help. This is the second case of a mother being accused of killing her children in the past year and a half in Plano Texas. Lisa Lisa was found not guilty of capital murder by reason of insanity in August last year and was sent to a state mental hospital for treatment jurors were told that D. as had been depressed and delusional when she he drowned her two daughters in the bathtub. schlossers apartment is less than five miles west of where D- as drowned her daughters thing. That's a little odd yeah no and my final story in keeping with the wonderful treatment that children get a so many people this happened in two thousand and four authority said Kansas woman who had a miscarriage early in the year confessed to strangling pregnant Missouri woman in her home and then cutting the baby from her womb a crime the local sheriff described opt the most gruesome he had ever seen Lisa Montgomery thirty six of Melbourne Kansas was arrested and charged in the kidnapping of the child resulting in the death of the infant's mother Bobby Jost in it twenty three three the girl has been recovered and was in good condition.

School's out for Covid
"Can you tell me Your name and what grade? I'm Ben Ben Kafka and I am in six grade at Msa pre-nine my name is Joanna. I go to school in. Ps Two sixty one. I'm in fourth grade in. I live in Brooklyn New York. Ben Related then is my brother. So ben what's going on with school. Well they closed it yesterday because of the virus in they don't want large groups of people but last time I was there there were there weren't many people anyway. Are you feeling Jonah? It doesn't feel like a weekend because on because I know that I should be in school right now. So it sort of feels like a break like like Winter break and I think that when I come back to school I'm GonNa be thinking like way. I'm not in a new grade if someone fourth grade what happened to all the schools shutdown. Yeah like not. I thought I thought it was just a district and then it's like every school in New York. That's crazy Ben. How do you feel about it kind of feels wrong? I kind of feel like right now. I should be in school. Not sit around at home. Sheltering is it boring to be at home kind of what are you planning to do for the next couple of weeks? While you're at home well my school's been Posting schoolwork online. So I'm GonNa do a little of that. I'm going to some video games and watch some movies and do some other stuff that doesn't involve digital devices so Jona with this virus. Are you scared at all? No virus doesn't scary because I know that it's a very hard chance for me to get it and if I get it it's zero point two chance. I'M GONNA die. I feel actually pretty scared Because I'm not sure Jonas getting these estimates from spreading quickly and I'm just have sometimes I feel like I think about worse case scenario a lot so Might be just that talking but I feel pretty scared. I'm scared to Ben and I'm glad you're there with your dad and with Jona. Yeah start at the beginning you can just tell me. Your name and The best way to introduce you share my name. Is Lauren Gardner. I teach eighth grade English at a public school in Carroll Gardens Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn. What's your school like? What are the students like there? We serve a fairly diverse population of kids about forty percent or more identifiers lat next about a third identify as black African American twenty percent identify as white and the majority of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch which makes us a title one school as well when did Corona VIRUS START IMPACTING. Your Day to day life at school. I guess a week ago this past week we began hearing from our principal that we may expect to see children staying home and that we needed to be prepared to send work home for those children or that it was. You know time to start thinking about how we might digitize our curriculum in the event that school closed. It's very impossible to tell what was going on. And when we would hear and what we needed to do and even being told you know yes digitize. Your curriculums felt a little abstract to me this week. Did your students stop showing up this week ago. This past Friday was the first day that we had a significant drop in attendance. We had like fifty percent of our kids showed up. I saw teachers. You know unsure whether to even proceed with teaching like it felt like a very straighten today to be in the building and you were starting to hear reports of you now. Restaurants need to operate at fifty percent capacity and schools. Still aren't close certain principles. Were coming out and say like I've got a confirmed case of apparent in our school of cove in nineteen. You need to know about this. You need to be able to make a smart decision for your family and that was prior to the schools being officially closed. And did that eventually start changing? There was a lot of drama over the weekend about. Why haven't schools closed? Neighboring School districts have closed and forget about us or what and there were. There were calls to call in sick and do a protest and civil disobedience and and a lot of energy going into getting the mayor to close schools and feeling angry and left behind. Okay so where were you when you actually heard the news? That New York was closing down the schools. I was actually on the phone with my co teacher. And she said turn on channel eight turn on Channel Eight. I'm very very concerned that We see a rapid spread of this disease and it is time to take more dramatic measures. The mayor is giving a press conference with the chancellor and it was really intense. He sounded super upset. So I regret to have to announce that as of tomorrow or public schools will be closed will make a first attempt to restart our schools on Monday April twentieth. But I have to be honest that we're dealing with a lot of unknowns and a lot of challenges and we understand how difficult it will be to achieve that goal. My jaw hit the floor. Like I totally didn't expect that and his phrasing was very ominous because he said the first time we will even attempt to reopen schools as April twentieth and it very well may be that schools. Don't open at all this year again. Other school district around the country have closed. Los Angeles School district has closed. I think that's the second biggest district in the country. What do you think took New York City so long to make this decision? I know that there is a significant concern about children who need schools for basic childcare. When I know that there's a concern about food and health services like maybe that was part of the delay in figuring out. How are we going to provide services for kids when schools are closed beyond just curriculum? Do you know if there are plans to get meals to those students. That don't have other ways to get food. Yes so what I'm hearing is that this week. All schools are open offering quote. Grab and go meals for kids. Anyone who comes in we'll be able to get a quote grab and go meal. I presume that some version of that plan is GonNa Stain through the duration of of this crisis. But I don't know the specifics. I think that's definitely one of the giant question marks around this. How much guidance are you getting right now about how to stay in touch with your students when they're not in school? I think that is a gigantic question-mark. Nothing has cohered for me in this way where I feel like. I've got a very clear plan about how to move forward but I don't know how that could be expected at this point. I have my students and my family's contact information. They're receiving regular updates from our principal and starting today or tomorrow there for sure going to be receiving regular updates from all of their teachers. It's just GonNa take us a minute to kind of get our bearings and figure out how we're going to move forward. There's also a big question about kids who don't have reliable Computer access so on Thursday or Friday of this past week my principal sent around surveys to the kids asking about their access to a computer access to Internet and it came back. A revealing about ninety to ninety five percent of our students have some kind of access to technology but I you know I have a question mark around because what I feel anecdotally is that I see kids with a lot of inconsistent access to acknowledging even if you are able to teach online remotely or something. Do you think you're going to be able to cover the expected amount of material. The normal amount that you're supposed to cover an eighth grade. No absolutely not. It really feels like a dialing down. We're not necessarily being explicitly told that but this feels like a crisis up next while schools are closed. Students are GONNA miss out on a lot more than just class. I'm no I'm Hassenfeld filling in for Sean Ramos Firm. Who's back tomorrow? This is today explained. This is advertiser content as a journalist. I'm part of the problem. We reduce people to one minute. Fourteen news package is. I've done it. I've done it myself about my own. People newsrooms are tasked with covering the whole world but they don't represent it more than three quarters of all newsroom employees in the US are white and three out of five of them are men. This has an impact that voice you heard Nella for her diet. She's a journalist author. Not something millennial women of Color and Muslim now for is the host of course correction a podcast from Doha debates and Cutter Foundation. It seeks to include. The voices were not hearing in the conversations. We're all having around important global issues and I was fifteen years old and I was watching the news and documentaries. It was like this big tool white man. Who's telling me what the Brown people think right? And I'm the Brown people and it would be presented to us as so the cost correction. Podcast is basically my attempt at trying to change things own a classic journalism trope is the view from nowhere. A single journalist certain of their impartiality presenting information as fact but there's always a view from somewhere to now offer that personal experience is a feature not a bug. We all come with a set of bias sees. It's about taking personal responsibility. Not just as an individual not just as mean Nella for a person but as a John List to report accurately and truthfully be a part of the conversation for change.

Cat DASH MOBILE DOT COM. Ou We've been talking about nationwide school closures on the show. Today we started with New York and on the other side of the country. Seattle was the first major school district to announce extended closures due to the corona virus. Last week name's Jesse Hogan teach ethnic studies an English language arts at Garfield High School in Seattle and Jesse. I heard the news last Wednesday so I was at my desk when an email alert popped up and I actually didn't look at the email right away I was in the middle of some lesson planning and then I heard hollering from the hallway and I realized I might want to check that email. It was an announcement in the middle of the school day on Wednesday that the schools would be closed for a minimum of two weeks starting the following day on Thursday and I realize the hooping and hollering in the in the hallway was from students. Who were excited about the school closure but I think just below that excitement was actually a lot of fear. We had some difficult conversations in my class that day. I told them that I was GonNa work on this and try to help make sure that all the schools were providing free food for kids. Who couldn't afford it and that we need it Help to get our union to be part of this effort and I would help to really advocate for increased paid sick leave to help their families and that if they needed anything. I was GONNA work to make sure that we have the technology to where we could communicate and I could Provide ongoing instruction as well and that's a real challenge. It's highly ironic that in a city with as many tech giants as we have that we don't have basic technological ability to continue the education of our students and the digital divide is very real. What are the options for for trying to communicate with the students during this period I mean are they basically just going to be on break or are there sort of creative ways? You're thinking of to continue their education while they're out well. The Superintendent suggested that we should consider this like a spring break The problem however is that the governor just came out on Thursday and announced that the initial two weeks of school closures would actually be extended to over six weeks at minimum and even suggested that they might be closing schools again in the fall when we're talking about that. Glenk of extended time away from school. It is really damaging to their education. So that's the actual education but what about all the other stuff students get from? Schools like meals will thankfully the school district has set up twenty-six sites around the city that will be providing food to to my students but twenty. Six sites to me isn't nearly enough and there will be students that have difficulty finding the site. That isn't their own school. You Know Garfield High School. We have over a hundred and fifty homeless students and in the state of Washington. There's over forty thousand homeless students and when the schools are close like this. It's not just the meals that they miss but are homeless. Students at Garfield rely on the school to do their laundry and to take showers and those facilities have not been addressed and so I think the city and the school district needs to have much more robust conversations about the many services are schools provide from from psychological wellbeing and counseling services to a nursing services that are free you know to the showers and laundry and meals. Yeah I wonder you know. It seems sort of like a particularly knotty problem to solve given that schools or these places where like everyone needs to be together. And that's exactly what we can't do right now and you know we've heard how so much more than just learning is going to be lost in New York and Seattle all over the country when these schools are shut down so I mean. How do you sustain community in a time like this? That's the really important question. Because I think social distancing is so important right now to stop the spread of Cova Nineteen. But that doesn't mean we have to distance ourselves from each other's humanity. I mean I think we need to learn a great lesson and from this. Not all great lessons are taught within the four walls of a classroom. Sometimes we can draw large lessons from people's activity and in collective action for the greater good and I think that we need to take a hard look at the lack of a social safety net in our country and see how we can do better to to treat the least among us because I think as long as we have such dramatic disparities in our society. We're all at greater risk

What Not To Do In 2020
"I Love New Year's I love New Year's I love the reset. I love feeling like this is a fresh start. I love that it's a chance to reflect on last year and good decisions sessions bad decisions. Everything in between but I am not big on like making promises that are just really ridiculous. Hello hustlers entrepreneurs solo per nor a small business owners. Everybody out there trying to turn an idea into income. I want to welcome you to serious business because it serious but it's it's not all that serious. Welcome to your weekly spot to get everything you need to know about making your business more profitable but also having a lot more more fun while doing it because if this eight fun you shouldn't be doing. Hello everybody and happy New Year a year may all the quainton addressed the vet will. What were you going to sing? Why would I thought was it implied that we add to see? It looked like you were taking a singing breath. No No. I don't know what I was doing. I was just breathing in the new year breathing in. We're on the cusp of New Year and decade actually. I'm already sick of hearing about it. I'm already sick of hearing about a new decade. It's an old decade twenty twenty vision. It's like not even and I'm already like Hong. Aw Yeah I like I like a new decade. I like twenty twenty vision. I like what do you want your next ten years to look like planet out now so And I really. But I like New Year's New Year's as an important reset for me hookers yachts and rum. Okay if you choose three words that you what the next ten years okay. It's like you're talking to yourself in your head and answering questions you like. Someone said singer favorite songwriters just winning. Only hearing half the conversation was Suzanne Evans today. And that's how this one's GonNa go exactly half of me is in the last decade. Having me as in the new decade is about to be a new year. You said you love it you love thinking about what you're next ten years are I. You Know I. It's so funny. I'm a strategist but not a big planner. You know that love. She just rolled her eyes. I actually love Spontaneity Eddie. I love to go. Let's go somewhere this weekend. Which means we leave tomorrow so I love the strategy of but sometimes I'm like you can play on your next ten years but let me just ask you a quick question Melanie or would you have planned to the last ten years the way they laid out? It's hard a good answer. It with the last ten years have been planned though. I mean it's surprise after surprise. Not In the plan. Isn't that life. Yes that's my point. So what the hell are we planning it but no no no no but you have to start i. I do believe intentions. I do believe that you set intentions Chins and those are the things I intend to not plan post okay but you can't predict anything no I no. I'm I'm joking. Intentions are cool and to to set the direction and the path of your life. But actually I'm letting you hijacked this podcast a little bit and from the moment you started singing and you took it over. I actually want to talk about what not to do in twenty twenty I wanNa talk about what is our not to do lists right My dear friend Larry Wing. It says this all the time and I think it's so brilliant he says you don't add anything to your life to make it better. You stop doing doing things that aren't working and right. It's so so true so we got a list of that so I thought we talk about ours a little bit and talk about why. That's such a powerful concept upped. Because I think everybody is sitting around the next few weeks and they're going exactly what you said. What do I want the next ten years of my life to look like in my business to look like and what want and what do i WanNa have and what are my dreams and my hopes and my intentions aspirations and I think that is valuable but I think more valuable list would be? What should I stop doing wing right? So I thought we go back and forth a little bit and then we'd Kinda position this for you guys to think about what you know. Remember that old show that it was so hot for a time there has its moment what not to wear o- on life on no you're saying it was a thing. It was like a thing for a short amount of time and I loved the name of it was what not to wear stacey some stacey somebody yeah but at that a grey streak in her hair but the point is so often. You'll have that great streak in your hair. I probably not. I'm sorry I've some gray streaks but they're splattered so I always loved the name of that because it was what not to wear and it was such a we often are like what should I wear. What should be quite often if you go? Hey don't wear these things. It will create a good luck right same thing for a great new year. So what is your not To-do list. I'm GonNa not smoke but you don't smoke now. That's my plan. I'm going to keep going with that one to keep not so looking good about this. I'm going to let you know this is going to be the worst. Podcast you listen to in Twenty nineteen eighteen or twenty twenty. I'm telling you this I am not going to do good podcast. That sounds like a good plan. So what you're did not plan my not plan is I'm GonNa let I don't know you've you've posed it in such a weird way that I'm having a hard time thinking. Yeah because it's a better way to think about it. It makes you go deep it's not just more dreamily bullshit. You not more dreamy bullshit. I'm I said this in our executive retreat the other day I am not going to do in the business marketing tactics that I'm not good at that that doesn't mean I won't risk or try new things but there are things that after eleven years of doing this that I'm really good at. They are sure things and there's things that we're okay or we do kind of well and I'm not doing those anymore. It takes time it takes my energy. It takes my soul. I'm going to do a bunch of what I'm good at and I'm GonNa let go of the stuff. I feel like I should be doing because people do it. They do it in the industry. Marketers say you should do it and I'm going to do it. I'm good at now you I really Oh really I'm like would you roll your eyes at me. I'm not good at spontaneity the something. We've already is stabbed life so you know and something that I'm not GonNa do spontaneity. That's what I'm not going to do and what Tony Not GonNa do it still do it. I don't okay back to me. Yeah I am. What are the things that I wanNA stop doing? Maybe that's a better way of phrasing it to you into these listeners. Maybe the listeners are as confused as you and I'm the only bright shining light here It's what do you want to stop doing that. That's really what it is. I another thing that I really want to do. Is I would like to stop not filling my water glass when I first come into the office. So it's there. I know wits there and then I wait until the afternoon when I'm parched and then I run and go do it between calls and I tell myself every morning. It's they're just go do it now. An adult some a stop avoiding my. You're avoiding. I am avoiding. Why don't you think that says? Do you think you your next your Pisces your neck. So you'd think you'd drink a lot of water you're next I mean mine is about water my see. So how my head goes I go yes I want to drink more water and so you're just going to take on my instead of saying and I'm going to avoid drinking okay in all not being funny here. Let me tell you how the mind works for our listeners. It's really interesting. How many times have you told yourself this is going to be the year that you drink water for the month that I drink water? I'm out that yeah well I. I've seen go through periods of time where you carry a big jug around and you fill it up and then I don't even know where the judge is now and you're not doing it so let us wait as an example got what's sandwich behind adamant as twenty five okay to readers. Don't know what that means family came in and moved your okay But wait this happens all the time with people who want to lose weight right. They go this year. I'm going to lose weight so it's this year. I'm going to drink water. The the brain actually has a hard time believing it will do something that you continue to lie about right. Which I'm a big believer and that's why I never say I'm GonNa do a Diet because I know I've lied to myself enough but that's my point so it's an interesting way to think about your New Year is what am I gonNa stop doing yet and and for me? I'm not going to. I'm going to stop not using my water when I use the water container. It works so the brain often has a capacity to take on information an action. That's put into a new opportunity for it so if you're wrote constantly like I'm going to exercise three days a week if you've said that for three years and you don't do it truth. Be told can be very hard for your body and your brain to do that but if you say I'm going to stop taking the elevator and only take the stairs. That's actually a newly formed warmed consciousness in the brain that you may actually be able to do it. So that's the point of this. PODCAST is a new way. I feel like I'm impressing you right now. Maybe it's a new way of thinking of because this is all neuro science. I mean it's all. How does the brain in take on a belief or an action? And then translate that belief or action into movement in your life or in your body or in In your words or in your actions and so that's why sometimes I'll I can make to make a list of things. I'm going to stop not of all these intentions and dreamy things and another another big list of bullshit that maybe you get to fifty percent of it when we all know what happens on. What does it blue Monday? which is like the second Monday third Monday February? The third Monday in February and it means that ninety percent of people have already given up on ninety percent of their New Year's resolutions solutions. So what do you not going to do Melanie. I am not going to over complicate things. God guys. It only took ten ten minutes and twenty four seconds to get her into the game. Okay love it because if you say. I'm going to simplify things. You've probably said that before four but if you're like I'm not going to overcomplicate this. You can actually pause and give yourself a fresh new chance and how you're approaching things. Yeah over complication. One is a big thing for me so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on on my team with petty things and what I mean by that is I tend to be the person that has to give the lecture. I have to give the talk when something's going wrong or something bad I'm GonNa send them. lemony Mellanby like this is what you need to do. I'm going to take less of my energy and time on that and spend more of my time on imported training and important education so I am not going to communicate with my team in big ways on petty things. Yeah because you can spend so much time was it. That Larry says sometimes about what is it just because they invite you to the fight or you don't have to. I don't know uh-huh felt so felt so maybe we'll we'll have them on sometime. It will have adults with us right now. The thing what are you not going to do I am. I am not going to let my tomatoes grow on the ground this summer. Thank you cheeses. She took some dumb ass. Asa Gardeners advice let all of our tomatoes gone on the ground and there were many to make fun of tomatoes. That were just hey. Listen if you're listening to this podcast cast and you have some tomato advice Senate in but I took some bad advice. I've never produced tomatoes in my life. Ever listen listen. Suzanne and I tried tried to grow them on a in a pot on the fire escape in our apartment in Brooklyn. We never lived in Brooklyn New York and never and this summer I totally someone said you can just let them lay on the ground and they'll grow and they did not they brought it and I've literally had hundreds and hundreds of tomatoes that basically basically rotted so not GonNa do that this summer. Not GonNa do it okay. I'm going to give you one more in them. We're GONNA give this a little bit more of a container so I am I am not going to I am not going to tell myself that I'm went to exercise. Sure cise and twenty twenty Yeah I mean that's my philosophy. I believe that's a good one. I'm not kidding. I'm not going to tell well I go through spurts Brive do great movement and walking and I love doing it but I'm not going to be that person that at the beginning of the year says I'm GonNa do this and I'm not sure if I'm GonNa do you. It may not do it but I am not telling myself I'm going to yeah. Well this is something I tell people all the time in business in life if you lie to yourself enough eventually you won't be able to. I believe anything that you tell yourself. And that is the point of what we're saying. That's why I think new years I love New Year's I love New Year's I love the reset. Love feeling like this is a fresh start. I love that it's a chance to reflect on last year and good decisions bad decisions. Everything in between but I am not big on like making promises. That are just just really ridiculous that most people don't follow through on and then he felt really bad about yourself and all you do is road the foundation of your self assurance and things that you know you'll do so when it comes time to actually make a decision and be able to follow through on it. You're not sure that you will because you've lied to yourself so much so there you go. That's my philosophy about what I will or will not do and I think that's the point of view with my. I'm not GonNa Smoke in twenty twenty. I think my whole point of this was what what would it look like if this year. Just give it a shot you. I made a list of all the things you WanNa stop doing all the things you want to stop doing all the things you refuse to do or that you I don't want to do. You may not need an intention or a resolution list because it becomes so clear what you want your life to look like and what you WanNa do and what you want to have and what you don't want to have and what you don't WanNa do that it really begins to form its self really gets to form itself and that was the point of this is just taking a different affront approach to this taking a different look at it and starting with what you want to stop or starting with and guys if you stopped doing the things you don't WanNa do your life would be so much happier than if you add it in a bunch of things you do WanNa do word right and I'm GONNA in there. 'cause that is my whole point of this is stop. Stop doing things in two thousand twenty and you will have a better life. Sounds good see you next time everybody. Thank you so much for listening.
