Interview With Chris Coney and Tony Dada
"When did it stop for you? When did you get the The bug as it were twenty fifteen? It was twenty eight. Fifteen five years five years ago. Yeah why don't you think about it like that? But yet I've been in the game is so what happened. I mean because you know was it. Was it like a Eureka moment because for many people they still don't understand what this whole thing was games about. Tell us a little bit in one of the things about Chris. Leads is really good at explaining simply finding so how would you simply explain this whole cryptocurrency space for people so I use Russian? Dole's right big rich Dole. The smaller one inside small on his side. Right so I have this little one two three that I put these together I say. Bitcoin cryptocurrencies and blockchain right. Those are the three big words thrown around. But the reason. I mentioned the Russian dolls and explaining to the SEC. He's like Bitcoin. The low one fits inside big Agricole cryptocurrency which fits inside a bigger calgary cold blockchain technology right so. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and cryptocurrencies puzzle because of blockchain technology right so that's the overview of how it all fit together so SA- bitcoin was the first the first example. A something that was digital that could not be copied. That's basically the revolutionary break-through. So if you think you know when all the file sharing networks came along the music labels lost their mind because you know. Cd's were great but then yet these CD copiers in your home pc see could copy albums but it was still you had to buy the disks and no one knew how to do it but when went digital it was an MP three file. You could just emailed you friends. That's the beauty of digital. Is that he just send a song across web. That's why streaming services so popular now is because it's convenient for the listener. Both the labels get to maintain control of the files right because before it was just a free for all wherever was sharing files everywhere. No one was paying for them. And that's because if something's digital you just copy a million times which means the song lost. Its value count. You can't sell it anymore. 'cause won't buys it. She has friends which is why you couldn't have digital money because if you got coin there's a digital file on your computer. You can make a million Kobe. Kobe scored and then it has no value. Because you can make an infinite number of gold right goes out. It's called in the ground therefore retains its value because of that. So that's that's the big takeaway is. Bitcoin was the first ever thing that was digital. That could not be copied. And that's how come it can be named digital money. It can be digital and it holds its value because he can't just copy and paste the Bitcoin so that was where it will began with that and everything exploded from that by well okay so it used to be really cheap like it used to be ridiculously cheap. We've said that every it was great in two thousand nine and add no value. Was you know didn't have a didn't have a price wasn't traded against anything so? Bitcoin is just to Bitcoin with just the bitcoin being passed around amongst in the inventors view like And it was just won't Bitcoin was being sent here there and everywhere until someone was willing to say you give the the Bitcoin. Now give you some. Us dollars at that point is it gets a price which is a an exchange rate and the famous story is the the first of actual transaction. Was someone on a discussion for said someone by me to Pepperoni pizzas and have them delivered to my house. And I'll send you ten thousand bitcoin so that was kind of like the pizza place. Took the dollars so would pay for the UK the twenty dollars for the pizzas delivered to my house when they go to live without. Send you the ten thousand bitcoin. Summer fest of Patches with Bitcoin. Ten Thousand Bitcoins petits and if that person still has those ten thousand bitcoins ads. Are you like less like how much they pay pieces? Cause Bitcoin might nights trading it nine thousand while human bitcoin and nine thousand dollars ten thousand bitcoin ninety I don't to night. How many million ninety million dollars now granted? You had to wait ten years because I was in two thousand nine so if if that pass and if obeyed ten dollars bitcoin sound them till twenty twenty. That twenty dollars would be ninety million and not have to pieces. God now that brings me onto the point because rolling with you. I mean you've you've enabled me to to to learn and what I've come to realize. Is that most people stay broke. We came just going to say it a case that most people stay broke because they just don't have vision in the sense that like you just talked about the pizza guy. I mean I've seen Things that you show me where you know. Bitcoin is concerned and there were forces at work that that trying to shake your hand to make if you're holding bitcoin. That will give you full snow and ideas about what's really happening. Trump took about the vision. Because unless you're very clear about and have an understanding of what this cryptocurrency weld is about. You'll give you you'll sell your. Bitcoin says the price goes down right so without takes. My mind is the rural of fads in the business world. Psycho Tony's Tony's doing Amazon FDA or Tony's doing shopper fire to property always doing internet modeling almost like almost like the passing fads. The they come and you make a bit of money from him and then they go. So or Tony's doing four x four x take instagram so disposable right and that that's fine but some people. I had a lot of people especially when it exploded in two thousand seventeen. We're talking about it like that. The language was on now. Now Tony's doing bitcoin like as if it's just the next thing like the next fad to play with until it comes and goes and that's that's how people have tried it because it was like it was hard because the price was absolute mental. And then when pretend to know melody be Blah. Last that fad passed in the pocket. And maybe for the reason you said which is unless you really understand what is about in a broader context. You will just pick it up like a fat and put it down and if the thing that got your attention was the price going from three thousand to twenty thousand. Well then you missing the whole game
How workers are fighting for their rights in a dangerous gig economy
"I was doing my grocery shopping at ten thirty last night and by doing my shopping. I mean I was picking things out on an APP that somebody else would get for me at the grocery store the next day and delivered to my front door and if for some reason I couldn't get a spot on that APP INSTA- cart and I guess we'd probably have ordered delivery for dinner using another APP that relies on another person to pick things up at the scary world and bring them to me. Yes I feel guilty about that but not enough to stop using these APPS and doubt that I'm alone in that right now we're relying on workers and the GIG economy more than ever and their job is far more dangerous than ever and most of them. Don't get hero pay or have job security or benefits. Some of them will have been fighting hard to change that and some of them have even one including a group here in Canada. The provinces Labor Board has ruled out food door couriers more closely resemble employees rather than independent contractors creating a groundbreaking precedent for others in the GIG economy. So today will tell you their story and we'll also tell you what happened right after that historic victory and we will do that as soon as. Clare. Who is just back from vacation gives us an update on covid. Nineteen this weekend Clare. Welcome back where did you go? Hey Yeah I took a few days off last week but didn't go anywhere. Obviously the furthest I went was to the park down the street. I am just glad that you came back. And before you update us. Can you explain to listeners? When will hear your updates now? Because we're changing that alphabet. Yeah will you know? I think we're kind of over the initial shock of Covid nineteen down the world and we've been hearing the phrase new normal lot so there will be fewer news updates at the top of the show from now on basically a couple times a week will update you on anything big happening with COVID. Nineteen in Canada. So yes you'll still get the news you need but maybe not every day and of course if God forbid a second wave hits and things do go downhill we will then be right here going down that hill with you every day and speaking of a second wave Clare. Let me guest as your report. Today involves some idiots in Toronto. Who were doing their best to make that happen this weekend. Yeah well that was what everyone was talking about this weekend. Because it was nice and warm out in Toronto and people wanted to go out so there were these huge crowds at Trinity Bell Woods Park on Saturday. Thousands of people were there with practically no physical distancing the city of Toronto. Call this dangerous behavior saying that. This threatened to undo all the work done over the past ten weeks so on Sunday. The World Law enforcement officers in the park and making sure that people were keeping that two meter distance. This is happening. As the number of cases of Covid nineteen is actually going up in Ontario and perhaps coincidentally two weeks after Mother's Day in Alberta the cities of Calgary and burks joining the rest of the province in allowing bars restaurants and hair salons to open today and there will be more restrictions lifted for those cities in particular on June first and in Quebec their concerns about an upcoming heat wave a minimum of thirty degrees Celsius for three days. Starting tomorrow the concern is people in long term care homes who don't have air conditioning. A long term care homes as we know have been hit the hardest throughout throughout this pandemic in Canada especially in Quebec so the Quebec Council for the protection of patients says. It's ready to go to court on this one as of Sunday evening. Eighty four thousand six hundred and ninety nine cases of covid nineteen in Canada with six thousand five hundred and fifteen deaths. I'm Jordan Youth Rawlings and this is the big story. Sarah much heads. Ida is the work and wealth reporter for the Toronto Star. She frequent guest on this podcast and now she has a podcast as well. Her new show is hustle. It's about the David versus Goliath battle. For Workers Rights in the GIG economy and episode two drops today Hazara high. You told us about this podcast when we had you on a couple of months ago and you've been putting the whole thing together. I guess well. The landscape has been shifting dramatically. So why don't you just kind of take us way back to the beginning and tell me about the GIG economy and food aura in particular When you first began this project which is a little over a year ago. Yeah that's right. It's sort of the May year anniversary of reporting on this story and there is really being so many twists and turns over over the course of the year. Some of which we sort of new would come a big battle at the Labor board an effort to try and unionize food aura careers. And then some that were just totally unanticipated. Obviously picked the pandemic being the major one there. So it's been a. It's been a really interesting. Year of following wet was really a unique kind of first attempt to change working conditions for workers in the GIG economy. Which I think is a word that we're all familiar with and we're so used to using APPs to get an uber left or order a meal to our doorstep but you know often. We don't interrogate what is happening behind the scenes. And so that was sort of the inspiration for taking a deeper dive into what the realities of this kind of work are like a new followed a group of food or careers for a year. Just tell me about them. I mean who are they? How did they meet? What are they like? Yeah so Fidora careers are really a diverse group of workers in the city. You know we've all probably seen them on their bikes with a big pink Fedora. Bag on the back or food or a jacket But they're not just cyclists. They're also drivers who go around the city delivering meals and I think a lot of people kind of assume that Workers doing this kind of job are often like young college students especially downtown a lot of the folks that you'll see on their bikes are are younger people but the reality is that the workforce when. I started meeting. Carriers was so much more diverse. You know a lot of drivers who are working in more suburban areas. Are you know New Acadians? Were supporting their families and haven't been able to find work in in their field. You know it's people who really do this as a full-time job is their career. Really They've been doing it for years And I think that the kind of overwhelming feeling that I sort of got from from talking to careers over. The course of the past year were just the fears and concerns around the protections on the job and a sense that this is a job that has really kind of fallen through the cracks that disentitlement workers from a lot of supports that many people take for granted. I think most fundamentally is a job where many express expressed just feeling like. There was a lack of respect and and one career Chris Williams who was involved in the Union drive. Kind of summed up why careers started organizing and trying to change that the broader issues around health and safety wages and dignity. And all those kind of stem from this other issue which is Fidora's misclassification of their couriers calling them. Independent contractors instead of employees or dependent contractors and that misclassification allowed them to avoid taking any responsibility for carriers. You talked about that kind of the goals of forming a union and one of them with dignity. Why is that so important? It's the hardest issue to define by in some ways. It's the most important careers have value. And I think it's the most important because that's personally by the way I think it's the most important because I think it's the one that justifies everything else like. That's why wages are important in many ways for me is because it's hard to live a dignified existence if your wages are two or uncertain if you don't know whether you'll make your daily quoted today or not and obviously health and safety connects to dignity because it's hard to be now when you're wearing constantly about your health you know it takes a toll it takes an effect. I want to explore that a little bit more but I I find the idea that we can talk about. These jobs is having fallen through the cracks kind of crazy. 'cause can you give me a sense of the scale of the GIG economy and Canada because it's everywhere right? Yeah anything I think

Matt Jordan on Bringing Clarity to a Complex World of Data in Training and Sport Science
"I always say that you're going to be way. Further ahead of you can find simple things that you can actually do consistently rather than trying to achieve things that are complicated and consuming the barriers of complicated and time consuming. We'll get in the way. Keep it simple keep into things that answer the question that you care about and and and do the simple things well I think. That's that's coaching rule. A sports science rule that you know will stand the test of time. It's one of the reasons why I still come back to light. I mean I see what I see. People trying to read create. You know super complicated movements in the weight room trying to achieve this idea of transfer from Jim to the sword. You've got all these crazy things happening. You know. It just doesn't resonate. It's not that doesn't work. I mean who knows? Maybe it does work really well. I just think you need to go back to what Derek Dooley said when he got that. Each skater man. I'm just GonNa Start with one thing. I'm going to see how that works. And then when I have a problem I have one more thing in and that's a very different way of thinking that starts simple in ads things in rather than starting super super noisy and tried to strip stuff out. It's really tough to understand. Things started noisy. That was Dr Matt Jordan. And you're listening to the just fly. Performance podcast thanks for being here with us today a lot of times when it comes to the process of training athletes the process of working to become the best that one can be in a given sport. It's very easy to fall into traps of complexity. Making things more difficult and complicated than they need to be or putting more noise in the system. So it's really hard to tell if what you're doing is really working or not. I've certainly been in this situation myself many a time. And it's that type of situation makes me thrilled to have Dr Matt Jordan as our guests for the show.

Patrick's Coming Out Story
"Come out to hear from Patrick who's now a successful Mike artist but he got relentlessly bullied for being gay or growing up in Northern Ireland. I identify as male And I I have an interesting journey with my gender I think because I started doing drag or Soy's drag when I was about fifteen stain kind of progressed. I moved to Manchester when I was eighteen on. I pretty much was wearing full. Face to makeup wakes clothes everything every single day. I think I am used to chester. Oh God I can do this. I'm free to to wear as much as I want. And where did you come from that? You can wear what you want. I grew up in Northern Ireland so I could and I did wanted by think I was always trying to be little bit. Respectful of my parents particularly my mom because she was a little bit uncomfortable at the time about me wearing makeup and bought me wearing weeks and and looking of the Yes. I moved to Manchester and it all sort of exploded e kind of all sort of mixed together. It wasn't really drag. I've never really done to the performances. I tried failed dressing. Dressing up was dressing up and still is for me now and I kind of stopped doing it for a very long time as my career is make posits kicked off. I didn't really have any time. I think there's a good three or four years where I didn't put any makeup on at all but now I'm at a point where I wouldn't even know what it's called I. I'm a man who is gay who likes to wear addresses woman. Sometimes but I don't see myself as a drag queen but juicy self is somewhere on the sort of gender fluid spectrum may be I guess so by just don't feel like home fits with me if you turn because everyone likes putting terms things. These days I would say gender fluid would be appropriate up you would prefer gender. Fluid suspended male. I don't really care. That's the thing that when people these conversations like I think about a lot but I don't ever think about all. This is the term that identify with the most. I'm just I'm just. I'm Patrick and some does I like to lady some days. I looked like a man. Will you go out shopping or go out and make you might just as woman? No I'm on? I think that's probably why the the line is in a sense. I'm why wouldn't see myself as being gender fluid for me? Gender fluidity is someone who I probably would have been more like eight nine years ago when I would go out house with makeup on and with silly outfits on in fact my what am I. University lecturer actually brought me into her office. University and asked me should be cool. You anything different remain is that do we give you a different name? Which would like different pronoun or anything? I thought no and I thought what she questions to ask my. I'm just wearing these clothes. I didn't understand why. Why did he was different? But looking back then I was definitely much more gender fluid whereas these days it's more just address up that's quite progressive really to serve. She was a lovely woman. What's your pronouns? So it's the right way about. Isn't it to actually ask the pers- yeah definitely definitely? I really appreciate. That looking back was a lovely thing of Helen. Do well done Helen so looking back. Can you remember the first time that you may be questioned your sexuality then to know why I think I always questioned bisexuality? Once I knew what sexuality was I knew I didn't fit into the normal. I remember having imaginary friends as really young boy and I always wanted them to be boys. I always wanted to be called Tom. Which is really weird because if my flatmate listen to this my flatmates called so I don't want him to think I have a thing for the boy called Tom. I always want to hug them. I always wanted them to be close. I remember it being because they were boys. We have family video of me when I was a kid. Really really young and our next door neighbor. Child I'm running around child's Charles like calling out for him because I was probably obsessed with and then I think I grew up and I realized what sexuality was. It was like. This is always something that I've thought I've always been attracted to boys and also the messages we getting about people that were male light boys of your school in. Belfast was yes I went to school. It's an all boys grammar. School in Belfast. Very up at south one of these kind of really wheaties for school. Everything around may was telling me that everything that I was into everything I was interested was wrong messages. Where you're hearing. I think proved very young age. I was always some other was like the victim of bullying in a sense. A growing up in Northern Ireland with a British accent With Army family and Camp. So you you were bullied for being English Bison Primary School it was always English and getting a degree because of my accents and then when I went to secondary school turned into A. You're you're gay. Boy Gameboy busted. Dumbo buster bums. The walls was always a catchphrase. That was said when people woods when I would walk down there the corridor. And how old were you I mean throughout secondary school. So from twelve onwards funny because I came out and primary school do yes. It is well. This is an early one. I asked boy to be my boyfriend in Palm. He's GonNa last year of Primary School. I come into how all that would have. Been eleven eleven. The education system is a little bit different Nolan. I think he leave a year or something later. I can't really remember that I recalled. I was very good friends with him and I found him. I won't spend my boyfriend so I asked him. I remember what he said. I gotcha I gave them a note. I remember I remember sort of slipping him tonight. What he boyfriend but I recall what happened after that however I do recall giving him a phone call after school to talk to him because we would every night and his mom picks up the phone and I said speech Cowan please. Is this Patrick. So yes said well. I've heard about this. Fancying thing the what Jamaican and she said. I need to stop disgusting for how this is coming from light. This boy's mum and this is probably one of the youngest coming has gazed. I've heard you were ten or eleven. You try to get a boyfriend boyfriend then. The mother intervene jess and that was kind of that was that because I I remember being on the phone. Remember sitting on my mom's bad being on the phone shutting down the phone. That may be thinking. Oh this is wrong because I didn't really think anything wrong. I guess at the time apartments quite just wants to boyfriend but he obviously thought something wrong with it because he went straight out his mother. I so God what happened with the friendship. I mean that was the end of primary school more or less. Oh I can't quite recall whether or not we stayed friends. We probably did stay friends but when I went to different school you know secondary school so I didn't speak to him again and then there was one boy from my primary school went to grammar school with mate and I remember saying. Don't tell anyone like about the stuff that was kind of kept hush hush and then he's not telling people but don't but not until like our second year of secondary school and then everything's coming out and then I saw his playing to little bit. Once I came to terms with my sexuality and I was afraid of. I think I've sort of jumped straight into it in the sense that I had a boyfriend. I think had my first boyfriend when I was fourteen. Thirteen fourteen and he lived around the corner from my house. So we get the school bus with each other so you did you ever have any girlfriends it right into the boys in primary school. I have so many girlfriends yoga. Yeah in fact. I really love laser device. Full circle moment recently. That my my my main girlfriend primary school I have makeup for recently mostly. Nice but they would just like playing Casey chases and primary school and yeah. It's a secondary school and I had my first boyfriend when I was about fourteen and the dramas about cost because I actually joined the cadet force and my my secondary school And he was one of the one of the sergeants and he was older he must have been bus eighteen when I was about fourteen to. Everybody obviously found out about what was that reaction. Then if they like previously recalling Ubembe boy and abusing you because you are and then they found that you actually had a boyfriend in school and the school in the catas- when I think about those that are times I think buckle news stories. You know. It wasn't all that bad. I got grief everybody. Everybody has something to say. I was ostracized from everybody apart from my very very close knit friends. But I didn't ever quite lucky in a sense I never have enough. I didn't get that much abuse a on me although to be ostracized by the majority of your school colleagues. It's got to be very alienating. Very lonely place to be as well. I think actually is probably the most difficult people some of the teachers to accept or not so. I remember one of my house shooter. Whoever he was obviously being be is to shave my eyebrows off and draw them on again. Of course course I getting a lot of people about and he looks at you. You're not really helping yourself are you. And that was his way of dealing with them. Just GonNa Suck my teeth now just very much that I think about. There's so many stories from my school The head of pastoral care at my school he told my best friend. My best friend was crazy like a piece of artwork and included a picture of the two of us in makeup and to be pulled birth bus into into the school officer. Talk about the fact that we harangue makeup in this picture and he's holding my friend Anton. The Envy's children turned out to be. He gave that he would assign them not the head of Pastoral Care School. Well he's in the wrong job. I know awful. Man Said no support tool then from anyone in terms of authority figures. Yeah but I think very much. My my school wasn't a great place to be gay and with what was this. The nineties noughties The northeast expansively. Brezler not a Northern Ireland so back in in the way I mean. They've only just got marriage. Equality abortion right. Yeah exactly Hallelujah. Thank God but they're so backward. I think of my Johnny was coming out with a little bit easier than of my friends because my family are English. Not to say the Ron. Lots of very supportive very open Irish people because of course there are but I guess my family went as religious especially my dad and I didn't really have thought that traumatic past of of living in Northern Ireland. So what stage did you come out to your parents. Bearing in mind the trying to get boyfriend at the age of ten in progress and then got one by fourteen. I'm guessing he came out quite early to them you well. I came out to my Mama earlier. My Dad moved away to Luxembourg when I was about twelve. I think he moved off work. So this basically he. He wasn't really on the on the scene so I think I was about sixteen came onto him by counts. My Mum probably about twelve thirteen and it was a conversation again. Sat on the same bad. I phoned Calgary from. I couldn't say the words I remember trying to say. I think I'm gay and not being able to say gay and saying I I tell you but I caught sight yet and Saying oh I don't know and then going through listen different questions than eventually. We got to that. She's like Oh you gay. Yes yes let's sets and okay right. I think you're a bit young. So maybe we'll have this conversation when you're older okay. So then every now and then it was a diesel thinking guy and that was. That was pretty much for my mom. I mean my mom was always quite supportive. It's my my older sister is guy I was. My sister had the real hard time coming out so I could. So she came out. I know she came out later. I came up so see is five years older than me. Okay I think she was about nineteen twenty when she came out and it was traumatic. My mom would always say my gay people. I might like gay man. I just can't stand spins. And that was her catchphrase and she's very very much the complete opposite of that now. My sister's marriage has a little boy. My mom loves my sister. I think that's just Hearn prejudice her and
How long can we all follow strict social distancing orders?
"I thought that I could say I'm speaking for everyone in the country. When I say social distancing sucks but I know it's necessary and we will get through it. I thought I could say about for everybody but apparently not we. Have you know a bunch of Yahoos? Open the front Queens Park sitting there protesting that the place has opened. That's breaking the law and putting everyone in jeopardy putting themselves in jeopardy putting the workers in jeopardy and God forbid one of them end up in the hospital down the street now. I'm as mad as Ontario Premier. Doug Fortius at those people who choose to show up for protests and float the rules. But I'm also concerned about the bigger picture about more than a couple of hundred eightieths. I'M WORRIED. The protests like this are evidence of cracks in the dam. Because I know I can feel it that the weather will get warmer and this will get harder and the numbers will go. Down and more people will be receptive to the message. Maybe not the protest message but the idea that it's okay to bend the rules and so they'll ban them and other people will see them do it. And that's how this whole strategy starts to fall apart. Here's the thing though. There's a limit to what people can take and well. Yes fine. Those idiot protesters as much as you want. You also can't tell people but they can't sit on their porches. We chat with their neighbors. When the weather's Nice can't tell them the can't take a walk in the park not forever. So where is the right balance? How much social distancing can we take collectively without cracking and when some of us do cave and break the rules and everyone sees it? What happens to the whole? We're all in this together part of the effort. What message should governments be sending people right now to keep them focused on the task at hand but also give them enough hope to hold on? We'll ask somebody who specializes in human behavior in a crisis as soon as claire brings us up to date on everything. That's happened with cove nineteen in Canada this weekend. We are expecting this week to hear more from provinces including Ontario and Quebec on how they plan to ease restrictions around Kovic nineteen in the coming weeks but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says. None of the plans involve immunity passports. Because they're still no proof that those who recover from the virus can't become infected again a Manitoba plans on ramping up surgeries that were postponed because of cove in nineteen. This is because the number of cases in the province remains low so some non urgent surgeries including cataract and orthopedic will start taking place this week. In Ontario the Education Minister says all publicly funded schools will remain closed until at least may thirty first is as the online learning will continue and that the province does not see a need right now to extend the school year as of Sunday evening. Forty six thousand eight hundred and ninety five cases of cove nineteen in Canada with two thousand six hundred and seventy three deaths Jordan. He threw in this. Is the Big Story Carolyn? Macdonald harker is a sociologist at Mount. Royal University in Calgary also the director of the Center for Community Disaster Research which is relevant today obviously Dr McDonald Harker. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. My first question is just as somebody who observes behavior. How would you say Canadians in general are doing in terms of compliance with social distancing measures? I think overall as a General Rule Canadians are quite compliant. I know there's a stereotype about Canadians being very polite but along with thought I definitely would say that. We are more conformist. There's more a sense of collectively in Canada and collaboration and so historically and even today during the current pandemic I would definitely say that there is a desire and a willingness to sort of abide by these regulations that were being given by government and health officials. That's interesting would you say that kind of changes nation to nation or by geographic area? How do you find that various absolutely if you look at human behavior it is definitely influenced by culture and social interactions so you look at perhaps some European countries we know when we've seen in the media that they had to implement Stricture enforcement because of the way in which people interact so Italy. For example there was a tendency not to necessarily follow some of the physical distancing regulations and so their government had to move to a much stricter regulations. And sort of you. Know a stricter lockdown You look at you know our neighbors the United States right next to us. You know. There's definitely the sense of independence and individualism and so some regions you know had more difficulty with some of these physical distancing regulations of and you still look at at the climate. You know when you compare Canada the to the US and how we're taking it very seriously here and you know you hear a lot of people in the US saying well. I can't believe so many stores are closed down. It's business as usual here. So there definitely are a cultural differences in the various regions and countries. So in our case then We've been at this for six weeks and we're doing fairly well in terms of compliance. How long Could you usually expect that to continue like even Canada would certainly have a breaking point? Probably right absolutely and that's a great question. Because I think at the beginning we definitely recognized. It was a global health pandemic. We saw that it was affecting other countries and we took it really seriously. We recognize that there are severe implications for older and vulnerable people and that they were very real so we were fortunate enough to see other countries experiences and I think that made a lot of people here in Canada. Take it more seriously You know and there is a lot of of fearfulness and uncertainty out there which has been really tangible. Now in the first few weeks were very compliant. Of course you know. The first week or two there was a bit of hesitation. There was a bit of disbelief. There was some denial But after that people really settled in and recognized that we needed to do this not only for our own health and safety but thought of other individuals especially those who are vulnerable but there is a point where we might start to see. That people aren't taking it as seriously as before and this is often referred to as crisis fatigue and this just refers simply to becoming immune to warnings from government and health officials and oftentimes. It's a result of you know this constant fear that's associated with repeated repeated warnings about the pandemic. And usually you see that start to set in at about you. Know the six seven eight week mark Where people are really starting to think about. Can I do this long term? And more importantly what are the impacts on my mental health? That was going to be. My next question is is there a point where The mental health costs become worse than the risk right. Absolutely and you know we've been talking a lot about the physical health implications and of course that's important right. We want to make sure that people remain healthy and I think everybody understands that but the other side of the coin that we haven't talked a lot about is what are the mental health implications of cutting people off from their interactions with other people and their connections. We are by nature social beings and we cannot survive without contact with other individuals and without Having interactions with them and we found you know many novel ways of communicating people are doing zoom parties or having worked meetings through other means of technology and I think it was new and novel at the beginning and people were excited about it but people are starting to grow weary of sitting at home and not being able to go out and talk with people and connect with them and it is having an impact on their mental health. It is taking a tool and we need to talk about that. We need to take into consideration because we have to look at you. Know what are the lives that were saving by continuing to practice? Isolation versus what are some of those long term impacts and we know in my field that there will be an increase in things like domestic violence child abuse divorce mental health issues like PTSD depression anxiety. So I think it's important to look at it holistically and weighed the benefits versus the risks. And not not necessarily conversations. We've had in the past. Were starting to have those conversations and I think they're definitely important points and issues to discuss when you do that. Research that you mentioned. Did you kind of find a timeline at which I guess maybe explain this wrong but those axes cross and it does become a much worse for long-term mental health to do it versus the danger is there.
"calgary" Discussed on The GaryVee Audio Experience
"That you can go on the Internet and it's called Google and Youtube and you can watch twenty five hours and learn another crap. Why do you think it scares people so much to do that? Though People lack humility and people are tired. People have left their mind. Go into it's not worth it and people who are forty eight years old decide their old when they haven't even started Mindset the MA. The brain is the operating system. The brain is controlling the actions. It's why I'm so passionate about what I do. Because every day I get a shockingly high amount of e mails direct messages that tell people tell me that I did something good for them and it was only because I was able to help them change their perspective. How do you change the perspective of someone who believes that at forty eight got out of their life figured out and as you mentioned they just kind of stuck spinning their tires thinking Kay? I've just got another fifteen years to go before I retire. How broken is that idea? I mean if they're happy it's a great thing if they're not then. I start getting a little bit more worried and you know you just start having a real conversation with them and just really start pushing them to challenge their thinking and ask them simple questions like you know you know. You're forty eight. Your Great Grandmother Is Ninety. One like you do know that. That's forty three years from now. You forty three years ago. You were five years old. Like people have a very difficult time with their relationship with time and I think I try to spend a Lotta time with that and try to get people to really see it quote unquote a different way. Why do you think they have trouble with the idea of time? I think most people are looking out for outside validation and the quicker they can get it the better. They'll feel about their insecurities and so people wanting to now. And I think that became a framework and I think it just becomes the way they see the world. Unfortunately how difficult do you think? Social media makes it because they are measuring themselves against everybody else's see in there feeds I just think it. It accelerates games that were naturally there so I don't think it's a byproduct of social I think those same people focused on one person neighborhood and the car they had and now they have more people to focus on So but you know watching lifestyles of the rich and famous you know put people into tweaks that were envious of others no different than a cool instagram post when you look at the current situation now and the ability to maybe take that step back that deep breath are you taking that step back time to breathe a little bit maybe spending a little bit more time with family that kind of thing hundred percent absolutely though unfortunate for me that it was that way for seventy nine days but when this became a long thing I have to really start focusing on navigating the business through the rough waters client stop paying clients you know not renewing You know making tough decisions on. Do you need to do furloughs layoffs? Or you know you know ban covers real business stuff so it's been a little bit intense and then you know on top of all that I decided you know a little a week ago to get deeply involved to become a partner and and be a driver of this all in challenge with Michael Moving now and Tisch and if this is your radar the challenge dot com sixteen million dollars in the sixties late days. Excuse me of the project so you know. It's gotten a little bit busy your last two weeks but in general yes. How amazed have you been at the ability of the world community to come together for something like the all in challenge you see people coming together for PP's or whatever the case may be just to feel like they're a part of this global movement? I believe people divorced. I think it it has not surprise me one bit. It's what people do. I think the human race is incredible and I think it's fantastic and I expect nothing less one question. I've always wanted to ask you about me. Being part of the quote unquote mainstream. Media is what role? Do you see the traditional media playing in this out of they get out of that constant stream of negativity. You're always talking about You know I it just about finding the positive stories I think there's way more positives going on the negatives but the negative is always more of a you know a Kinda rubber necking thing. You'RE GONNA look at death tolls you're GONNA look at you know issues. But we're not talking about all the people that have spent more time with their kids and thirty days than they have in their whole life or there's just so many positives coming from this so I think that I think that the reality is. It's back to the conversation we're having around perspective it's justice zoning in on the good 'cause there's plenty of good there's so many people helping there's so many new businesses coming out of this so much good now. I'm kind of curious about this point to and I've been trying to make it on my show as well. I actually don't want it to go back to normal. There's a lot of different things that were Kinda wrong in the world that we could easily fix during a time like this. Do you feel the same way. Do you think that maybe we can go to a new normal? That kind of leaves the old normal indust- there. There's no shot that there. There is an that. We're going to exactly the normal that we all knew so Yes that is my hope and I think that that is very clear where we're going so Good News your hope is going to be Is GOING TO BE ACHIEVED? There's just no shot that we go exactly back too many days of new behaviors. Final question for you. Because I know you're up against the clock here when it comes to that new normal. What are you looking forward to the most People being even more thoughtful with their time. And they're quite a bit of time of Others Aka you know More people working home from home on Fridays so that they can go into the weekend but still be productive during the day Again not going across town for a one hour meeting if you work in New York and losing that our just doing it on zoom. I think there's just such a new way to do business on video conference that's going to lead to that and and then enjoying when you actually do go to dinner and give it personnel.

"I'm a Feminist But...' with Robby Hoffman
"I'm a feminist but on my way to Seattle came from San Francisco on this lovely American Canadian tour. I sat next to a woman on the plane with such impressive breasts. My instinct which curbed was to say Nice Rack Lady. Nice Rack didn't say that but just popped into my head. I just thought that was a lovely pair of breasts. You and I very different politically speaking. I tried to explain my brother's Shmole. White cat calling bad shmole should construction. Worker in Calgary Canada Nice Guy in the world group of five girls. He showed me around his house houses. You see that they all look the same off the highway. They'll look like a construction off. The you're like who would live there my brother and he's could you believe we got the House so. I'm like yeah. He showed me around. Gives me a tour of the house? He's like I got to make the bathroom however I want. And he's like a bench there because Marianna. She shaves her legs. She should take a seat. Be Safe nicest guy in the world. Try to explain to my cat. Calling is not good anymore. He's like you're telling me you could see a pretty girl and not makes him sick sacrilegious. You're going to see a pretty on. You're not going to tell her plus over there at works. He's how do you think a lot? I was Mariana. So this reminds me of if you said. Nice rack to her. I don't know maybe it's because you're a woman should by the way is not cat-calling anymore. But because he's married so it is what it is out of respect for his wife. Yes loyal his name. Shmole Shmole schmolly numbered. I am a feminist but I like the joker so so I liked it. I didn't know anybody hated it then. I went online while I I didn't see it to have a lot of knock feminists content. I didn't even look at it. Sou- with regards to feminism or not. I felt bad for him physically. He looked ailing and There was some medical concerns. I had first and foremost as a HYPOCHONDRIAC. I was very concerned about his diet. I'm the smoking and popcorn lung. That maybe he was facing a lot of concerns. Feminism the did not come up for me on the list I mean. There's a lot of content. We're asked to empathize with sociopathic white men. Dot onscreen. I feel too many stories about a man who can't stop killing. I'm not saying there is no cycle of abuse and it's never passed but we don't talk about. It's not just a simple and every single time I watch something about a psychopathic man. Which is all the time. Because that's nine tenths of the content available to me on any streaming service slash cinema. It's always feel sorry for this. Man was deliberately being violent towards women but then he beats himself often then he thinks back to when he was a child and he was beaten. And you're like that's just not. That's not good enough. Thank you and we need to stop telling better stories because it's excusing a lot of things. And in my opinion if we had not been asked so thoroughly and constantly by Hollywood and television for generations to empathize with Whiteman. Doing everything and feeling everything and so rarely asked empathize with anyone else. Donald trump could not have been elected. Electable we feel we all feel for white men because we've been trained and trained trained trained and trained in a movie and I'll just okay. Sorry this that one got on. That really took a turn at the joke. I didn't see that being so controversial but it turned out to be very interested in either. I don't read nothing about movies. I was like oh I have a night off ghost movie. Come out ready to talk about it. My girls like what am I. O O Walking Teaneck. I thought no. Okay we'll talk about it anymore. I haven't seen it because I think it's GonNa be on it for me but I am interested because that's about a stand up comedian. Great Place Great Whistle Story writer also. I'm a feminist. When I came into the amazing NEP changed. I saw his indoor art. That was sort of stained glass windows and I was so blown away and I was going to take pictures of these virago backstage and I did. I was like this is beautiful and then I looked at what I've taken pictures of. I'd taken pictures of men astride horses. Thank Neptune the mythical figure clothed men astride horses looking powerful and women with long around on rocks and Avas like Neptune Theatre. These patriarchal pictures. So I said I cannot perform here unless they covered with velvet drapes. Well they could give me the photos and put new photos isn't it? The women are topless and they're giving away the art. I'll just cut the dude out. And I got not suggested that they be given a wears enjoying the art. And I'm not I'm not saying I'm Ben no way shaming the naked women of the Neptune theatre and I'm highlighting them if anything. I think if anything I think we should all get tops off join them free the nipple and say we stand with you. Women Ancient Greece in Rome. We stunned with you topless defiance because sometimes nice rack. Yeah
Fighting Youth and Teen Suicide with Kendra Fisher
"We are facing an increasing crisis of teen and youth suicide in America and it is especially affecting young girls. Today's episode is a difficult one Kendra Fisher former elite ice hockey player and mental health. Activist and advocate helps me dig into the roots of the problem and what we can do to turn it around years ago. When faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goaltending for team Canada Kendra was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder coupled with severe panic attacks depression and agoraphobia forcing her to leave the national program in order to seek help to learn how to live with what had become a crippling disease. She now dedicates her life to helping. Young people get help for their mental illnesses. We turn now to a nationwide tragedy suicide new report from the Centers for disease. Control SAYS IT IS GROWING. Rapidly has been on the rise for more than a decade but nation suicide rate is at its highest point since one thousand nine hundred twelve year old accomplice allegedly harassed. Szechuan included that. You should drink bleach and die. No one likes you and you should go kill yourself. Sedgwick jumped off a near her home. After writing friends nine year old McKenzie atoms last week from other says the fourth grader was the target of Constant Racial Thompson? Name calling I was diagnosed with mental illness and I had no idea where to go so it was actually out at a team. Canada camping in Calgary and leading up to it in the weeks before I'd been to the doctors I've been to the hospital emergency room. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I felt like I was having a heart attack. I felt like it was gonNA Faint. Couldn't breathe swallow and and everybody told me it was fine. I love hockey and I love everything. It's given me both my hockey career. Also it would have had a shelf life and now. I'm in this position where I've learned so much about myself and I've met so many incredible people because of the journey I've been on and hopefully I can be a part of something that might stop somebody else. I'm Kendra Fisher and I'm fighting for the lives of those living with mental illness. Sorry not sorry so I mean. We've got a tough topic today but really before we dive in a love for you to give my listeners. A bit of information about your background. And how did mental health especially in girls become one of your causes? My background is hockey. I mean everything about my background is hockey. I grew up like so many Canadians. Just really wanting to have that red and White Jersey. That had my name on the back and I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to go to the Olympics and everything in my life through. My teens really suggests that I was going to be successful in that. I was carded member of team. Canada's National Hockey Program and sometime after high school I just got to a place where symptomatically and not knowing what. It was without a diagnosis. I was off. I just I felt sick all the time I felt like I was making trips to the emergency room constantly. Feeling like I was having a heart attack feeling like I couldn't breathe and it got to a place where unfortunately the perfect storm kind of hit. When I was out at my tryouts for team Canada in ninety nine and I was out at the camp and I just couldn't hide it anymore. It couldn't hide the battle that I was having every single day I grew up in in the greatest. You know possible situation. I had a great family. I had great friends. I was in a small town and I had a dream and my dream was. I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to play in the Olympics. That was that was what I knew. That was everything I worked for and I was well on my weight that I went to the coaches and I tried to explain to them what was going on and quite honestly their response to me was what it helps to know. What already made the team? They knew they wanted to select me that year. And I was finally get that chance to live my dream and it's obviously been one of the hugest moments of my life but not for anything I WANNA remember. Kazan's there was no at that point. What I eventually learned was a severe panic. Disorder and AGORAPHOBIA. Ocd clinical depression had literally taken over my life. And I spent the next five years unable to leave my apartment. Valey participating in my diagnosis just kind of scraping by and doing the bare minimum to survive and after five years I realized that just didn't see the point anymore and at that point I knew I had to make a decision and somehow I found it in me to start fighting and I learned everything I could about mental illness and the system and how it works and what supports are available when I really kind of became at the risk of sounding unhealthy obsessed with my own recovery and I got to a place where. I live very comfortably with my diagnosis. It doesn't mean it's gone. I live with it every day but now I live with it as a professional speaker and travel the world helping others learn how to cope and manage. I also work as a firefighter. I managed to go back and play for team. Canada's inline hockey team and it's really just kind of become a journey that I'm so passionate about because I understand how hopeless it feels but more importantly I understand how hard it is to find hope and defined real help and support and understanding about mental illness. And I just want to be a part of that. Narrative does mental illness. Run in your family. Yes yes and no I mean. I've always done this whole. Why did it happen to me and I think we always look for the answers because if we could find the answers we can fix the problem? Certainly on my on my Dad's side of the family. There's some depression but it wasn't so prevalent that I ever knew about. It wasn't something that I was ever made aware of. It didn't show itself to me until I actually understood what I was dealing with. And you said that you're now living comfortably with your mental illness. What does that mean? I'm fully functioning. It doesn't affect my day to day life in a way. It did in the way. It did kind of earlier on in my diagnosis. I got to a place where I just have an incredible system of support set up around me and I have all of my tools and strategies in place and I'm very quick to identify when I'm not doing well and I've also given others the permission to hold me accountable when they see I'm not doing well and in doing so. It allows me to really react quickly and now. I mean I would challenge that on my worst days of anxiety. I'm at worst as a panic on my worst days of depression doesn't affect me any longer than it would affect somebody getting a bad cold or the you know the stomach flu. It's it's a couple of days of really having to focus on what's brought me back to that place and making sure that I am doing all of the things that I know. Keep me healthy and usually I can rectify it. Just by changing those behaviors. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. But I think it's so hard that when we're in the middle of it to do the things that we know will make us feel better right like I know that going out and being in my garden digging in the dirt or taking a hike or taking a yoga class. I know that these are the things that will make me feel better and yet it's so hard to break out of it. Do you have any advice for me? Yeah absolutely with love and affection. Not as an not an onerous way. But I think that we forget to practice the things that keep us healthy when we're doing well We get to this place where we let life kind of takeover and that you know that pace of just going and when we're good we don't feel the need to necessarily revert back to that self care in those things that we know keep us healthy feel like so many people only practice crisis response and I think that it's time that people learn education and prevention are really the way to manage things crisis response is really you know. You're too far already.
COVID-19: women will be more affected, but play central role in the fight
"Tend to affect men and women differently on specialists in gender issues. Wanting the coverted nineteen corona virus may hit women in negative ways that have a more profound impact on families. Women make up the majority of caregivers at home and in our communities existing trends show they have less access to sexual and reproductive health and domestic violence rises during crises. But women have also the power to be change makers in the response agenda playing a central role in communicating with families and with communities. You A news and Shoe. Shama spoke to you and women's deputy country representative in India. Niece thaw such him Bush that in any disaster in any And to make the experience across the board women goes the most one group Because or at the margins locked scared response or nutrition accordingly Aniline circumstances there's been a disproportionate amount of on big A. K. Work that falls on Amex photos dresses of their abilities. So I think it wouldn't be an underestimate. Say that any impact of calm or of any pandemic it far more on women. Good in such circumstances you really get is also a very gordon. Lead to increase in violence against remained noting discrimination against Nagging Inc among unspoiled across the globe. And there's evidence From previous is to say that This is how things out so e just to establish that the impact on Adminis- File Creek and also gone far longer because they come into the recovery petition. I'd go much ASTA People were not at dodgers So I hope that answers your question. How long is it going to take? I think it's very difficult to say anything right now. Could different countries respond to different abilities of his born and I think in Europe being the diverse country that is already seeing some interstate variances in how the disease or the virus spreading to? I think it's very very soon exceed what will happen. How long will be all that can be said is going to be very very important as change maker in the Response Agenda? Judy because they do each of these decisions that whom they children. There's also a lot of woman appear to be a networking over the dentist phone. And therefore very very good change agent for passing on information acting upon it and also ensuring greater hygiene and briefly held standards the household and energy. Eventually do you think the problems of the urban working women are different from the urban and Rural Poor in discusses? The distinction between all of these categories I think over England of now as we see that the home is val become public speech right as you pretty cramped up into the same space and public speakers have been more deserted. I think commit safety security perspective. I think life has completely changed for oven. Working Women also from an unpaid can work now talking before this call but being back home even for each one of us has just met meant more demand on our own personal happens to provide for each other and care work after the kitchen so suddenly I think that God has gone most triple over the period of time and pick up into one space. I think it will also reduce the insecurity so I do think that. Any instance like this distinctly And differently of demand for urban or urban and working and then we'll and Reuben so We'll see some of that in the coming days. We're also seeing that a lot of actually the migrant communities badly affected by the lockdown and many of them women so a house do you and women working with other agencies to help these women in the crisis your guide I think Migrant migrant women domestic workers wage worker walk. The frontline have been most affected by something like this Partially because of lack of information or the information digs down control to them Also the fact that is I mean this. Also kind of takes away that economic franchise and that they had and also because the job displacement because opinions on not going to two million or even home circumstances that's it I think on marginalized groups are more vulnerable to be impacted by crisis like this. Not Just my community You and movement is working for donating the Union's response from agenda perspective along leadership with the CEO of your Unisex so we're now looking at a three big areas of work. One is lending support to stock mechanisms. Is How do we change into mission in how similarly bills countries are responding to the virus to East Calgary Youth and data cadre of the nectar representatives to the point ever following? But how do we use them? Effectively and the thought of course is access economic involvement. Which is we know that. A lot of franchise that origin. Peterman canty has been derived from the actress to work and from the economic security record and We don't want this spend make to be To kind of take that away from them and they take away the voice choice agency so the idea. More or develop mechanisms stores programs policies. That enable more work from more Bruce which means particularly for example making factory. Workup basically get to after not being able to congregate. How do we work? Funny Tennessee with private and public sector enterprises to ensure export bungee news in some way or the other and economics franchise or going to meet. He's not dropped it but again. I think we're all beginning to learn from each other at this point. We're beginning to think of the response than I think.

Basic Folk 60: Taylor Ashton
"Taylor Ashton yes. Hello you're probably the most famous person that has no information on the Internet about them. Well can be true so far for me. Yes okay I I. You're you're a well known name in the folk world but this was a challenge sir. So let's see what we can see ads some some information and put it out there. Okay great well. Thank you for doing this. You grew up in a small community main island. The main island is actually not where I grew up But it is. It's often my old band fish and bird. That was kind of where we said we were from or based One of my band mates that I co-founded that bandwidth did grow up there and so that that's I think the source of that particular confusion but I grew up in Vancouver city. No that's eighty nine hundred person island no to two million person and city changes every single question. I Have Vancouver okay. What was that like for you growing up in Vancouver It was great. I mean it was We my dad moved there when I was GonNa say Susa six or seven And then he and I lived in a bunch of different apartments around around Vancouver In Vancouver was a great place to grow up because it seemed like there was always some kind of cultural thing that my dad was able to take me to and we were able to go on bike rides and get into the woods pretty easily which was really awesome. Growing up cool. Yeah it was just you and your dad. It was me and my dad. My parents split up when I was five. And a mom ended up in Calgary so I would I would be there some weekends and then like you know the spring break and Christmas break and then summers have fire. Are they apart our flight so and I did that as an unaccompanied minor like pretty much right off the bat. Five years old. I think more in the seven kind of range I would get on the plane with like had this like big lanyard with a big plastic envelope that said. Um on it. And don't steal me exactly. I mean in those days my dad could take me right to the gate and then my mom could come right to the gate to get me so Sure the flight attendants were yeah to Babysit for. And I'm sure that you know I think back on you know. I think I like what the seat one of the Times. Probably at the time I was like what's wrong with me and I think back and I'm just like that was probably kind of intense as a kid just flying by myself so it you know looking back on it as an adult. I'm like no wonder you know. Be kind to your younger self. Yeah exactly I definitely had like a move where I would. I would draw on the on the BARF bag as a kid I would like like. Oh the flight attendants are going to be so impressed and like they always work as a seven year old. It's like I want to be like. Wow that's so cool and it's like you know that was like my idea of socializing pretty interesting because you did. You'd have grown to become like a pretty talented illustrator which we can talk about later but What kind of things were you drawing as a kid on the BARF bags probably pretty similar to the stuff that I've drawn barf bags now when I take flights it's definitely a lot of Gosh it would be amazing to to see you know. I've never captaining stuff. I would always like the flight is. It'd be like wow. That's so cool. It'd be like do you want to have it and they were like okay You know I was. I was reading mad magazine as a kid. And there's a Lotta caricatures. Oh that's that's a pronunciation that my character. I had this fight with my dad recently where we were up for dinner with some other people in and we were talking about the words that people say wrong and like some ten minutes after that conversation ended. I just happened to say caracature and everyone was like. Where did you get that from? And my dad just happened to be at the table. He's like I think I would have taught us character anyway caricatures. So which is funny. Because I've done so many of them. But you know a lot of like the exaggerated features and like you know weird juxtaposition and things kind of things cool cool okay. So where you you were living in like two different houses basically yes. We're very different when it comes to like You know consuming art in listening to music. they were a little different. I mean both my parents were were are into music and and very supportive of me pursuing any kind of creative expression that I That I could come up with definitely. My Dad was a little bit more. You know it's funny to think that at when I was that age he was aged that I am now so he was like kind of like going to shows and he was going to plays and his friends. We're like in community theater productions and some of his friends were playing gigs that I'd go to and it was kind of the type of stuff that I would think is cool now Were the types of things that he was happy. Having like at friends houses that had like a bunch of records and they put things on And actually one of the things that my dad would take me to. As a kid was this he had a friend that was really into making a diy movie projects and he would have people over department and do showings of them. And like sometimes I would stay over at this guy's house. It's funny how these details are kind of like. I don't know how you know. Barely sort of remember how my dad and this each other but he sort of showed me how to use this like animation machine that he had and that's kind of what I recall from it so there was kind of that type of social situation. Interesting adults yeah interesting adults. That were I think that the moving back and forth between the two cities did it did stunt my friendships a little bit with people my own age because it would be this thing where. I would have friends in the school year and then I would come back and actually moved schools a bunch because we moved around Vancouver a lot so there was a kind of had to start over a few times and then like I would come back from the summer break. And I'd been in Calgary where I didn't really know anybody come back to Vancouver and like all. My friends had two months is kind of a long time. You're that young. And so they would. They would have all these like shared memories of crazy things done together during the summer when they were like free. And I'd been like kind of on the computer at my mom's house in Calgary in the suburbs and pick mostly drying and like doing doing stuff like that and so it was. Yeah there was a lot of like hanging out with interesting adults and kind of our projects. How do you think that affects your ability to like make friends now or connected with people? Now I am so I do have kind of A. It's a good question. I didn't realize this was going to be like therapy. But we're going there. We get rum. Yeah we got you are Peter. Moulvi MONTHS CLINK YEP Placed the clank in front of the MIC. Make sure it's nice and clear. I mean I'm very grateful for the friendships that I have for a while. After I left home I was used to moving a lot and I think it might have just been that used to like sort of uprooting and figuring out what it meant to be somewhere else so i. After we after graduating high school I Victoria. And then I was living in Winnipeg for a couple of years and then I lived in Toronto for a couple years and there was like a few weeks that I would spend in various other cities and kind of had this like cycle of starting to feel a little bit like belonged in some certain community in in a place and then I would have this. This weird need to go like I would feel sort of taken away by something else. And that's how in ended up in New York which like for such a transient city. I think a lot of people will go spend three years in New York. They're Kinda like excited and then they're done with it and they need to like go somewhere that they can park their car and you know. Now I'm I'm married there and that's that seems like the place and it's been like six years so at least six years of living there.

"With some of the Calgary staff okay he's got to calm down yep I want to be a person who has a job like that I want to be one of the announcers okay he's got to calm down that is a great piece of advice he's got a chill just a little bit what do you do when someone goes nuts when you see someone explode in front of you when they're not exploding at you they're not even exploding at somebody else because in the first of the two examples I played people are just Jana technology so I'm curious what do you do when you see someone just give Superman edited out of an object an object that can't really fight back because I I try to suppress laughter if that tells you all you need to know about me all right bye okay that's fine but more often than not if I see someone super upset I will try to help I'm not one of the horrible people in Seinfeld who doesn't help someone in need I will do it I will get up I will figure out any technology you need me to understand for you but I will be suppressing a whole bunch of laughter and I imagine that's what's happening during this if you're pulling a coach off of a door to get him to not fight an entire opposing team you gotta be laughing in the back of your mind you gotta be think yourself man this is this is awesome but he's this upset that he's this past and everything going on right now because you know I will need to take a breather we all need to hear you know what I'm gonna do it here on the air because I think I needed to take a step back slow it on down and try to be calm and what else we need to do is be respectful to other people we don't have to let them do terrible things to us but we have to be nice enough to them to have some amount of common courtesy and that gets me to another piece of audio I have for you guys today it's from Washington post executive editor Marty Baron it's number four in our list for my producer Phil to find it I need talks about how news organizations just maybe and I know this is gonna be shocking everyone listening the show but maybe they need to do a better job and understand ARINC at understanding I can't even say it that the trump voter is a human being that the trump voter is a person who needs the same respect anyone else need they don't need what Michael Moore says they need to which is free to cross the road when you assume there in front of you but let's hear what Marty had to say yeah I like I mean I I think we have to be careful how I I I don't want to be dismissive of people who who support the president I think they're the they're owed our respect and they certainly have mine but you know they they feel that the so called elite in Washington of not a paid attention to them because they don't understand their lives they don't understand their concerns with a they're not being heard and they feel that the president is actually listening to them and addressing their concerns this is the kind of thing that I think we do need to take a step back and learn just a little bit better is that yeah and this is honestly true so often so often in life you come across somebody who seems very nice you talk to them just fine and guess what doesn't come up at all how they feel politically or how you feel politically because that's not really a defining characteristic of who we are as a person I mean in some ways I guess it it to a very small amount you know matters and I certainly would like to know where where any of my friends land on the political spectrum just because I have a certain level of interest in those things but it's not going to make the change the way I treat them it's not gonna make me need to cross the street when they're around me so you know that's a great piece of advice today to for Marty is that in today's day and age maybe just maybe we need to assume that every single person that voted for this guy or that guy or supports this person or that person is a more complex human being they have a lot more characteristics that that you and I need to take a second and and you know really contemplate and I know that I'm asking a lot of us but it's almost the end of a of a year we're about to have a new year's resolution almost all of us I assume have one and maybe one of mine is just to to treat more people with a certain level of respect and not assume once I know something about them like who they voted for that now I know a lot about them I just know very little about them at that point Greg counseling for Chad bents another quick break and then I've got a lot more topics that are going to be

"With being Dobie who's having a great season Curtis Dickson who held out until January twelfth Ulan played in fourteen games when he racked up eighty one points and two without Westberg who Kirk Laskey told me this morning. He's not even a part of the paper anymore with the Calgary club because he sat out all season. Do it a contract dispute. You look at this kurban lousy they've built this through the draft as you said eleven first rounders on this club. He they're dynamic. They have all the pieces of the puzzle. We always feel like buffalo has all the pieces of the peso's, bad up and down power play transition, the whole bit hate there. The Calgary roughnecks matched the buffalo bandits perfectly. I mean, you, you look at up threat, right? You got on that, right? Hand side. You know, you're looking at Curtis Dickson, and you're looking at research. Right. Got ended up getting him from the band couvert warriors. That was a big pickup, and res head a little bit of a bigger role in the beginning because Curtis Dickson hadn't signed yet, right now said you. Put those two guys on the right hand side, hard to cover hard to cover, you gotta decide which poison are you going to pick that you gotta get ready to double their, their match up problems for the buffalo bites? You go to the left hand side, Dane, Dobie having a career career year, one hundred fifteen points who am I seven goals, sixty eight assists? He's the ever present energizer bunny on the left hand side. You know, he's not as gargantuan guy, but I gotta tell you very, very strong center of gravity. All the moves got great vision and on that left hand side. He's going to be a key component and kind of a gift for Kurt Milewski. Hey, Jesse king Saul forgot about him? He's back. He's back in the lineup. He's gonna be played tonight. You know, he adds it a pretty potent left-handed asset below ski in the offense of side of the ball. He can shoot. He's got range. He's got great vision. Always moving does all the little things kind of reminds me of Adam Jones a little bit. You know, he's not afraid to go muck and grind to get the Lucy's. Get wallowed as well. And that's a big big pig gift for meltsa for Levski in the roughnecks pre game show continuing here from downtown buffalo the key Bank center, John Cutler, Randy Murray, STI Burma, who is wandering around this mutable structure in preparation for tonight, seven thirty eight off game number one of the two thousand nineteen l l Cup Steve Calgary electing to go with three rookies. Will I the bandits? They found a lot of faith in them to the get go. And they're led by Reese, Kallis all six seven two hundred fifty pounds of it. Now they're being led by draft picks. It's just crazy. How you could talk about every year as these as these potential draftees come out how talented they are. And how much better teams are getting with the young talent that they're adding on both sides of the ball tonight as you mentioned, the bandits with their young players? Ian McKay, Matt Gilroy chrislucia won't be in the lineup tonight. But their first round picks on a big impact and Calgary MacKenzie just said at that they've built through the draft and the amount of talent coming out of both the box game. And the field game from the college level is really translate into success in the NFL and they're going with res Kelly's, who is that six foot seven rookie first rounder another first round or this year ally Salama played sixteen games as well, and Shane Simpson, who was the first rounder, as well, playing very strong Calgary coming into the national lacrosse league in two thousand one they're owned by the Calgary. Flames also own the stampede and the hitmen of the W. H L. Gosh, does this sound familiar at all with Padilla sports and entertainment into the post season sixteen. Of eighteen seasons. They have to championships in four when they beat the mandates nine they beat the New York titans last time into the finals two thousand fourteen. They lost to Rochester ten innate on the season tie for second. They defeated San Diego and Colorado to get here. They started the season without Dixon and Burg they jumped out three one, and then they lost three straight. In fact, there was a part of the season where they had lost five of their seven games. But now winning three straight of the regular season campaign at the end and to hear the playoffs averaging fifteen point four five goals a game. That's not too bad. Randy again, just review of the roughnecks roster overall. They have a very nice mix, yet they serve that truths rookies grinners hard workers. Absolutely. John, you're exactly correct. You look at their season in the totality. Right Burke, Nixon, they didn't sign so they had other guys. You know what? Hey, we'll just go with the guys, we got got off to a three one start. Then the next thing you know, Dixon comes back. It's not a bad thing. But now said, yeah. Dixie Dixon into the mix. And you know what you to you got to build more chemistry, you know, 'cause you already have a group of guys playing for each other now saying, you got Curtis coming in, and okay. Well, that's a different dynamic. They go through that. And then through that year with, with this mixed the veteran guys that the leadership is everybody starts to figure out what roll what, what, what is their individual responsibility to the team? They continue to build that chemistry. And it's not the first game of the year it's the last game of the year you want to be in the championship game incurred Milewski and his staff just done a phenomenal job of building this team all the way drew date had to face adversity. They've gotten up over that. So they've been there true tested, and they're, they're going to be a big, big problem at obstacle for the buffalo bandits. They have all the facets transition guys like you know, MSCI wild sack Currier career probably the best two way to way guy in the league today time. Bell love him. You know, they have all the pieces of the puzzle, and you can expect a gritty gritty performance from any Kirpal ski team. It's been a long time for general manager.

And then you guys are doing some really cool things with it. So let's just start off with your approach to this network. And how this came to be. Sure I'd have to go back in time. Because in Calgary we've always had a vision around two connected city, and that started, you know, more than fifteen years ago. So we've been building out communication infrastructure through our fiber optic network for the last eighteen years. We really saw that is foundation of than building upon that for a smart city or a connected city into the future, and you know, sort of knowing what was coming into future in terms of, you know, people affect devices buildings being connected.

It was noted in my research of this in a couple of places that it's very unlikely that any of that was authorized or proved by Walt himself. I don't know if that's the company coming in and like trying to protect itself or if it's true. I'd like to think it was true. Because Walt did give a lot of these true life adventure like directors and everything them. Yeah. It was going to say he gave him so much time and so much freedom to like actually get these things filmed. It was prize me if he was like, yeah stage this that's fine. Right. I yeah. So I don't know if it's this James alga guy making it up or you know, what I mean? I have no idea. I don't think we'll ever know. Well, just go to waltz defense to like in the I've learned a lot about him as from like this podcast, and I feel. Like, even when his animated movies. He has a lot of integrity puts a lot of research and keeping things authentic like when you look at what he put in Bambi, and like the research that he put it into making that movie what it was. I just can't see somebody like him being the type of person who would be okay with faking something he just I feel like he had a lot more integrity to his work. And I just use the example of Bambi and how much he put into a story about a deer in like how offense he tried to make that I just can't see him being. Okay with faking something like this. That's just my opinion. Maybe he I mean, they could have just presented this to him. And then he believed it as truth. Just like we did watching it the first time until I looked at up, you know, and then he was like, oh like that's great to educate people. All right sad. But you know, it's part of life. It's not what it didn't bother me as much until I found it was fake. Yeah. Because I'm definitely like the type persons like well nature's nature. So if it's that's the way it is in that's fine. That's just the way nature is. That's the way it's all to survive in whatever form. So it didn't really bother me in finding out. It was fake. Then it really bothered me. Yeah. Bother me at first. It was sad. But then a bothered me. Because it was fate. Don't don't play with my heart. Offi? The last of my phone facts. This one's kind of phone, but not so the scene of the lemmings leafing. Lemmings leaping off of a cliff was actually used as a political metaphor in a campaign ad promoting Andrew Monroe rice and Oklahoma candidate in two thousand eight in the US Senate race. So like, it's so dramatic that for like political propaganda..
