Olivia Rubens on Her Unique Knitting Designs
"So right before. The uk went into lockdown one of the final in-person fashion events for me was seeing the l. c. f. m. a. graduate. Show at the camden roundhouse. And i remember thinking. Oh my goodness who is this. Designer with. These amazing knits balaclavas. And i've never seen a style like yours. Before i mean your collection was on one hand so technically exquisite and on the other hand very dystopia and with you know the doll head handbags construction. Could you tell us what the influences behind your collection were. Yeah thank you so much. Wow yeah seems like is very odd. That was a time when i wasn't even thinking about kobe. It was on the other side of the world and all i was thinking about this collection out on the runway. It was really about you. Know overall femininity and identity might view grant in the end ended up. Being quite nihilistic which was that we can never fully know who we are as people and as women Somebody said something to me. Wants which was just that in order to know yourself completely. You have to meet every single person on the planet because you'll present a certain version of yourself to every single different person so unless you do that. It's impossible so i kind of ran with that. I was also kind of making criticisms about myself. Like i like to do. Just kind of point out little funny things by society in about myself and other and other people and the way that we kind of assume people's identities i think is hilarious like people watching which was something you know at the time that i was doing a lot because i'm sitting on the tube like so many hours of the day so that was part of it. It's just kind of assuming people's like based on stereotypes and kind making up stories in our heads. Because what else are we gonna do. We're sitting on the to and then this this idea of nature versus nurture so. I used victorian children as references. I came across this little vintage book at the vintage fair. A pitiful audie in florence. And i just thought it was so hilarious because these these children. Which are you know. They're supposed to be fun and playful and crazy but they were just so static and each one of them was so serious. And when i was reading up on victorian photography they had to compete with painters at the time for some reason always turned out serious and so all these photographs that they really style them like we have to get it right but when arguably now we would we would say that we capture someone's full essence when we get a candid photo of them so that was really funny and then the the modern version of that was hatching girls and do they become who they are because their parents are because of them or did they choose to do that. And so there were some hilarious references in their garments and i watched way too much reality. Tv and which is where all the toys and the dolls came from in that whole collection.

US Employers Added Fewer Jobs in April Than Forecasted
"Added fewer jobs in April than they did in March, a sign that some businesses are having a hard time finding workers. Kenneth Burns from member station. Wh Why? Why reports Some reasons are tied to the pandemic, Experts say. It's hard to tell whether a so called discouragement effect from finding a job due to enhanced unemployment benefits is a factor. Michael Hayes and assistant public policy professor at Rutgers University, Camden says one factor is that some adults who would normally look for a job can't because they're helping their child during online learning. Another factor, especially for a seasonal summer jobs involves the health risk. Those air jobs were. Maybe you're feeling more closely.

Top 10 players signed by Patriots
"Talk about the Patriots. The the Patriots grabbed everybody's attention by making move after move after move after move. Like we're watching it over agency going off. How many people are going to bring in its kind of unbelievable how many starters they've added? And so I count they added ten players that I think are very very significant to their team next year. In fact, I would say pretty clearly the Patriots are back and a lot of people saw this coming, you know, but they are going to be a force in the NFL next year here is my list my nerdy list of the ten players the top players. They added that are very significant to their roster next year. The first two are massive. It will reshape the entire Patriots offense. They added two tight ends Johnny Smith and Ed Hunter Henry. To Johnny Smith signed from Tennessee. He signed a four year deal worth up to fifty million dollars. That's Thirty one point two five million dollars guaranteed and he's only twenty-four years old. So that's Monday. That's a really gigantic Marquis franchise player. He cited the reason why it came to New England is cuz he loves Bill Belichick. He's got great respect for him. And I want to point out of all the everybody I'm about to talk about these shows to be in New England Bill Belichick got his kind of guys who sought out New England wanted to be there and wanted to work hard and win a Superbowl. I think it matters. It's very very exciting. These are not with Josh Gordon's or what's the other example Phillip Dorsett who they made a move for and they're not really like that. You think they fit they don't work out know. These are guys who all chose to be in New England who wanted to win a Superbowl. I really want to win a Superbowl. These guys went out of their way to be New England now the other tight and they brought in With twenty-six-year-old tight end Hunter Henry from the LA Chargers got a three-year deal twenty-five million dollars guaranteed. It's worth up to thirty seven point five million dollars total if he meets all those incentives. They also added two wide receivers the Patriots brought in Nelson agholor to a you got a two year twenty six million dollar contract East twelve years old. Now a lot of people do not like this move and I I get it Nelson agholor is not the most flashy player in the NFL but I think if it's very well with Cam Newton, he's good at he's not going up and getting the ball. He's got good hands did some stuff of the Raiders that I think deserves your attention go watch what he did with the Raiders and I just I'm like, huh a lot of good plays. Okay. I understand. I see the potential Bill Belichick and the Patriots would see and Nelson agholor go will give the guy a good contract, especially considering the Patriots have like our desolate at wide receiver. They need help. They got home. Who is awesome but he can't do everything by himself from the slot. They have n'keal Harry who n'keal Harry. I I think he's going to pop. I think he's going to progress and keep getting better. But she's not a number one right now. So on top of the page where it's also added Kendrick Bourne guy from my local area actually went to Eastern Washington University 25 years old. He's coming from the San Francisco 49ers. He got a three year deal worth twenty two point five million dollars. Now another thing the Patriots did they also added they signed Center Ted carriages and they traded for tackle Trent Brown. So this is the new Patriots offense right now. They've receivers Nelson agholor, Julian Edelman Kendrick born and kill hair is its own nuclear Aguilera. I'm doing my best. It's a hard game to say. They also have Sony Michelle running backs for any receivers Sony Michelle at running back and improved offensive line. Cam Newton at quarterback who I get why people doubt Cam? He's a former NFL MVP and with when you put cams Talent with a lot of weapons including two outstanding tight ends Hunter Henry Smith, right man. I'll tell you what I look at the Patriots offense and think two things immediately number one. Everything is going to run through their brand new Titans. Their entire offense now is probably going to drive down the seams of the field right up the middle. They're going to use our tents heavily lot of play-action again. I am scheme wise things will look a lot like the page words did back in the day when they had drunk and Aaron Hernandez together to start tight ends. Now number two. I feel very very confident with Cam Newton as the Patriots quarterback and it surprised me but I want to remind you that two years ago. Tom Brady was the page word starting quarterback and did basically nothing and the reason was there were no weapons there. He kept running into the same brick wall. His receivers weren't good enough. So, how can I think you and I would both agree. I like Cam Newton Tom Brady's a better quarterback than Cam Newton. So my point is if Tom Brady couldn't make it work with New England's roster. How was Cam Newton supposed to succeed? He was set up to fail will now Cam Newton's being given weapons is being set up to do. Well, I'm excited man. He's a former NFL MVP, he's hungry. I I personally believe Cam Newton's going to have an awesome year and it really is going to make extended one-year deal with like it was like three and a half million dollars with a bunch of incentives. I honestly think we're gonna look back at his contract at the end of next year and go. Can you believe the deal they got on Camden he played so well for no money. I really think he's he's a guy who can didn't play well enough wage. Last year to earn a new gigantic contract. So he's going to have to show what he can do this year and maybe earn more money next year but I think cam is poised to do very very well and make a lot of money and win a lot of games in New England
Chip Shortage Hits GM, Leads to Production Cuts
"Get back to Tom Doll. He's president CEO over its Subaru of America still with us on the phone from Subaru headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. So, Tom, let me ask you. I'm sure you've been asked about it many times. And I was I did watch earlier when you were joining our Bloomberg TV colleagues this GM story today, saying that they have some chip shortages and then it was hurting it. You guys you've been doing okay? So far we have been yes, it is going to affect us at some point along the way, but we know that through the first quarter of the year March, it's not going to impact us all that much. Now we're still waiting to get Information from our suppliers about how it might affect us as we get out into April and may in particular But we're hopeful that the impact isn't going to be that much. What's going on. It's a good question. You would think that there'd be enough supply, given the fact that he's like trying devices inside G devices that people are saying is the cause of the shortage of people who are purchasing these things well before the pandemic started. And then coming out of the production was actually for us was very strong and we could get really all the chips we wanted through the period until probably early part of December, and that's when we first started to hear about this potential for a chip shortage. So I know they're working with our suppliers all over the world to try to figure out Where we can source additional chips and I'll be honest with you. I mean, it seems to us anyway, The situation seems to be getting better A supposed to worse, but I can't speak for all of the other manufacturers. I can only kind of speak from us, right? Right. I do have one question though. I'm curious. Are you concerned or could it lead to higher prices down the road, Potentially Specially. There are shortages. I mean, it could be depending upon what the chip manufacturers do with their pricing. We all have pricing contracts with the chip suppliers. But in a situation like we're in, and if you've gotto somehow find another source for your chip supply, there could be increases and chip prices, But we're not at this point forecasting any Significant increase in in prices as a result of the chip shortage well, and it's interesting to you know, we've been talking a lot about kind of the chip industry. I feel like Tom over the last year. I mean, I look at my car. It's so much a piece of technology in the amount of, you know, technology that's in it running in. And as you move towards, you know, evey is it becomes I feel like even more So, um Do we need to as a world as a country kind of look at our chip supply chains more closely, and maybe even as governments being much more active in terms of those businesses and making sure that everybody and anybody who needs them has access to them. They're they're clearly a vital aspect of our vehicle production. There's no question about it because they're in so many different components there in our head units there in our engine control modules. We're in a lot of the advanced safety equipment that we provide. So I do believe that it is something that governments need to look into that. Make sure that there's a secure supply of these chips of that manufacturers such as ourselves, don't get caught in a situation where you can't supply an adequate number of these chips that would meet supply on meet demand, because You know if it's manufacturers aren't able to get these ships and literally does stop the production because you can't produce these vehicles and then insert the chip later, the chip has to be inserted into the device before it gets put into the vehicle. So it really is something that you know, can really throw a wrench into the whole production system. So where it is something I think it needs to be examined and looked into.
Back to the Himalayas with Jeff Rasley
"About jeff. Welcome to the show. Thank you camping. Glad to be here happy. Have you tell us a little bit more about yourself well. I grew up in a small town in northern indiana gauchan. Indiana and i was all set to go off to college when it was time and i ended up dropping out after two days and just didn't feel like that was what i really wanted to do. After having spent my whole long life of eighteen years in school so i went to work in a factory saved up some money and then mom reluctantly drove me to the edge of town. I stuck out my son and he tried to cross country. But i did end up going back to college after my parents told me if i didn't they were going to kill me and i thought okay choices college death. I'll take college and ended up. Really loving academics. At a serious level went to the university of chicago than went to law. School eventually went to seminary so ended up spending a lot of time in the classroom. I'd even taught a few college classes practiced law for thirty years retired. And i suppose what's really brought us together is that i written ten books. Several of which are about what. I call philanthropy trekking in nepal himalayas grew so but is that exactly. What is philanthropy attracting. Yeah it it. Means a combination of fee lows. Which is greek for love and anthropologists philanthropy. Means love of humanity in. So i combine that with tracking. And so i've been to nepal fourteen times in started a foundation over there so i combined tracking with philanthropy led an organiz many groups of truckers and many of which have been involved with the mission of the foundation started which is called the possibility foundation. What exactly does the bassett village foundation do well. It's concentrated in a remote area of eastern nepal. Which is not on any of the popular trekking trails. A set of the first time. I was there which was in two thousand eight. My little group of truckers were only the second group of people from the outside world that had ever visited abilities which was an amazing experience because they were living basically the same way they had for the last five hundred years but anyway the foundation does is. I developed this relationship. Was that village. And we have helped to build a school hydroelectric system water system. Our most recent effort was little health clinic and we also help to rebuild the village which was partially destroyed from two major earthquakes. Back in twenty fifteen the same earthquakes that sarah safari was in when she was tracking mount everest in the last episode so our mission goal is to work with the local people to finance the projects that they would like to bring up their standard of living in terms of education sanitation healthcare those sorts of efforts but all of those projects have been requested by the village not suggested by us the outsiders the funders donors to the foundation members. And the reason for that is. I think it's very important for this. Kind of development work really to be primarily in controlled by the people at supposed to benefit so that we don't develop a kind of dependency mentality so the school the water system the electrical system the villagers build it themselves with their own hands and they own they run it and we just provide financial assistance and expertise. When it's ask for school cool. i was talking to somebody else as well. Today that happened to be working with foundations that affected the same area. About empowering nepali women roller. You should connect us. Sarah safari yeah. She's really cool. Where did you grow up. Like i said in the small town of gauchan. Indiana doesn't seem like there'd be much there in indiana as far as mountains. There are not. I had never climbed a mountain or done. Any sort of high-altitude tracking. Before the first time i went to nepal back in nineteen ninety five and my first experience there was directing the mount everest base camp trail.

I am nichelle pace. I am the president and founder of brandt enchanting media which is a small creative agency consultancy here in camden new jersey. First off happy new year to you happy new year. How are you feeling about twenty twenty. One i'm feeling hopeful. I'm very hopeful. That twenty twenty. One will be the year of the turnaround while i was away. We did our The chinese new year horoscopes and twenty twenty one was a year of the ox so there was a lot of decisions for prosperity and abundance for twenty twenty. One so i am trying to manifest that in all facets of life for twenty twenty one and and have a hopeful lookout. I feel like we hit rock bottom so you can only go up from here. Yeah i agree with that. I mean i know twenty twenty and for people that are listening. I'm not going to drag on twenty twenty twenty. I'm not gonna do it. Because i've heard a lot of you say you don't wanna to hear about the pandemic i get it and i know that it was a difficult year for a lot of people but when you look back like how would you sum up. How last year went for you. Just in general part of me feels guilty a little bit because the pandemic actually resulted in a bit of a reset and opportunities for my business so this was our biggest year to date in terms of billings in knowing so many other people were struggling. It's hard to lake way those emotions and and try and celebrate your success when the world is literally on fire around you but by the grace of god and the opportunities that came. I mean everything from the social justice movement actually yielded more brands and companies and organizations trying to work or fine more minority voices as we all very well now but that turned into opportunity for my company so this you know we had a pretty big client early on in a year i mean it was bittersweet because we didn't get to keep them all twenty twenty but for the the three to six months that we did work it was our largest client. We worked with the wine brand Out in california we'd like to sustain and take it but we might have been a little too small at the time and then they had some internal issues and you know the pandemic can sometimes cause challenges in execution production internal staffing. Not all clients are gonna be transparent that they had to cut staff and other things of that nature but twenty twenty was actually the year of growth just for me as a business owner for our company. It was challenging. You know on a personal side of things with school and my youngest son. Who's now a senior so trying to balance disappointment of not having a traditional senior year missing track season missing the penn relays and balancing those things out but yet having a good year in terms of my business. You know you kind of vacillate between feeling excited to take the opportunity during the pandemic but at the same time guilty like okay i'm thriving and others are not so. It's a lot to kind of digest to be honest with you. And i'm sure i'll probably sit down and Ended here.

We worked with the wine brand Out in california we'd like to sustain and take it but we might have been a little too small at the time and then they had some internal issues and you know the pandemic can sometimes cause challenges in execution production internal staffing. Not all clients are gonna be transparent that they had to cut staff and other things of that nature but twenty twenty was actually the year of growth just for me as a business owner for our company. It was challenging. You know on a personal side of things with school and my youngest son. Who's now a senior so trying to balance disappointment of not having a traditional senior year missing track season missing the penn relays and balancing those things out but yet having a good year in terms of my business. You know you kind of vacillate between feeling excited to take the opportunity during the pandemic but at the same time guilty like okay i'm thriving and others are not so. It's a lot to kind of digest to be honest with you. And i'm sure i'll probably sit down and Ended here.

That voice was coming out of this little boy in a wheelchair who conveyed nothing of the pain and thorough medical procedures that he had already been through never had anything negative to say about anyone. He never talked about any issue with body nation. Change us old. You're already in trouble. Nationwide think so. I'm not the. I'm not kidding. And his legend grew within the community.

Cam said they may have went to the where one soon times with that play but that's the play that they executed. Well. Over the last two weeks and I think he scored a touchdown early on a similar plate and even ahead of play action off of that place. So. Bet Play is a play that they can use any. Situation would be third down. Razov and has been effective. I honestly don't think it should it came down to that play. There were plays in a game I think maybe one or two cam probably would have won it back. A couple questionable, third-down caused, and which they ran the ball nate allow Camden Doda football so. Probably should've never came down to that wind play particularly, but I think cam play well play winning football. They play football on both sides and I was very impressed highly impressed but off this play will spend more plays for the doing pages in Kansas and let's really comfortable. Running a system and they're going to be a tough team to beat. Not Soon Change. They're going to beat the New England patriots. Team planning the postseason easily but at the same time. They're gonNA come situations in the game where they gonNA. have to find ways to win games like this and I'm pretty sure that they'll go back and look this film. It comes down to them being. On one and a two yard line and finding a way to get it in I. Think they was kind of shocked in that moment and just search a four play call.

I am only in control of decisions and choices that I make and I have to take full responsibility for the choices that I make. I cannot control what he says to me or does. I cannot control that so if he says something means to me, all I can say. Is that hurt my feelings? You hurt me. You really hurt me as a friend. You betrayed me, are you?

It's the fact that one or both of us are all of us have decided not to be caring about each other, and so all we wanna do is take away from and not. Not Give too, and so now we're suffering. We act like we don't know what it is, but we have to do is admit you know what I've been selfish. I'm sorry, please forgive me I need to change thus in so I need to stop thinking about my partner in the project I need to stop thinking about my what I do around the house, and I need to just understand that we are a team and we give all that we have every day to make sure that the hold functions well, and not just me seeing me winning, but if I. Alone when the whole team loses, so my personal stats mean nothing if the whole team is not winning. How can we recognize selfishness in our own personal lives? Well when we look at our our spouse, and we look at our kids or anybody around us, and I say that because it works again it works in every facet of our lives, if we open our eyes, and look at the People's countenance around us, you can win. The person walks in the room with you. You can tell a lot about how they feel about you and how they see you because when they when you're when you're a positive aspect to their live positive asset, -bility when they walk in the room with you. Beat your boss, your worker, your child, your spouse, your brother, your friend. There's a difference in their eyes when they walk in and see you. If glad to see you and they light up then you're giving you giving positive light to their life, your joy to be around. But when you are, they walk in the room with you in their countenance falls, and they don't look like they're very glad to see you. Then that lets you know that there's something going on that you need to look at and say wait a minute. What am I not doing here? Why is my wife's countenance? Not that because see when we were dating. When why will walk into room? She would light up now. She likes down so I need to look at. Am I treating her right? Am I? Am I? Talking to her right? Am I being a ray of sunshine in her life. I might be in the cloud, and so I need to just look at myself..

"Where we find our happiness, no matter what the other things in life are doing to us. WHAT'S COMMON? Is a problem with those religious. Basically, it still goes to the point of what we're talking about. Now is because if I don't like myself, it's hard for me to love. You is hard for me to be real with us for me to be honest with us. Open because actually inside of my head I'm dealing with the fact that I. don't really know who I really am I. Don't really like myself I don't really I'm not really enjoying the work that I'm doing so when people start dating we always. On the infatuation, we don't talk about real things.

What is it that you that really makes you cited? What is it that makes you really sad. What is it that? That really motivates you. What is it that really causes you to be paralyzed, so we don't talk about things that we're by is going to affect US later. If a passion for example, if they just go to college, but they hate what they do in this guy of this this woman, they or they this person they get up everyday in. Don't like what they do. Will Guess what? They going to stick to be miserable and so therefore they're going to bring those feelings into the relationship because they hate what they do every day. They're going to be grumpy. They're going to be hard to live with. They're going to be hard to have a conversation with because everything is related to the fact that look my relationship with what I do with my job, I hate what.

"The faith and I'll keep looking forward. How can we find more happy to join our lives when he suggests? The bottom line is i. think that when people the difference in that's the really major start and I don't think that we talked enough about that. We listen to different people on different. Todd phones in talk about the relationships in life in different things, but nobody ever explains that different and so to get to that place, it really comes from being not forgetting. See when we're a little child. We have this very beautiful, joyful and happy place, and we see unlimited. We see life unlimited. We see everything unlimited, and then someone who has forgotten his parents teaches family members, friends of bullies whoever they begin to tell us otherwise, and so we forget we start forgetting that we were happy. We start forgetting that I would imagine nation was unlimited. We start forgetting that we believed all things. We hope old things. We started doing that and so in order to maintain that you really need parents who understand what happiness enjoy it so that they can teach you about happiness teacher that okay, when a friend at school is into you. You, that makes you sad for a moment, but that doesn't mean you don't have to be happy anymore and so I think that understanding and teaching your children from the beginning that you have to keep your file for yourself burning. You have to believe that that beauty that you saw that. You see now as a child that you never let that go away. No matter what people do, and so no matter what happens in life, no matter how you grow older. How you experienced different things don't ever let people take that that beautiful fire that passion out of YOU and so when we lose our authentic self meaning Camden. We stopped doing those things that bring us the most joy. So if you have a kid for example in like when you're a child, if you like to do the certain in, nobody has to tell you to do it, but you do it automatically. It doesn't matter what's going on and you. You lose yourself in it. The time doesn't matter. Your mother has to remind you that you haven't eaten. You is just your in it. You're happy and so if you take that away from that that child, and you take them out of environments that cultivate what they love, so if If the tile loves building blocks in. They love putting things together like NATO's all these things that means that that child. They have a mind to to create a bill, so you can't take away from that, so you can't take their legos in their their blocks. In all those things in just take them..

And so once I got some time clean I decided to sit down and write a book and that's that's why I'm sitting here today I rode a named it such unfortunates, and it's my story of how I became an addict.

"They kept me on the strong and by the time I was. Literally Fourteen I was addicted to Clinton and taking about four times the adult dose adult normal dose for an adult that didn't it would help the exiled in a short amount of time, but eventually the anxiety would come back, and so then I started drinking at night, so I would take pin during the day and then drink at night to get this anxiety to go away. And it was just the spiral that led through all my my high school years I, was basically under the influence of something, all through high school. and. That led to the point. I really don't know how I graduated high school. By the time I graduated high school I had taken my soul to the emergency room. Think it was about thirty times. Believing I was dying of artists. And you know when it came to my family, you know. They sent me to a couple of psychiatrists and they didn't like with the Sky I had to say so. You know they like the one psychiatrist just gave me drugs, and and that was that was their answer. And, then later on when I became a drug addict they were like. How could you become a drug addict, but? What I didn't when I graduated from High School, we went actually went to see a psychiatrist. A woman about whether I was fit to go to college because I had right after I got. My driver's license ended up being charged with you I I got in a car accident drunk on a Sunday morning. which would have been a huge red flag for seventeen year old? But I went to see the psychiatrist and the psychiatrist told my parents, she said. You know I don't know why you're thinking about college. This kid really needs help. He needs to be in a hospital somewhere getting help, and he does not need to be going to college in my parents, said Lady. You're crazy. That's not what we wanted to hear and lady basically said well, then, why did you come to? He didn't want to spend in. And so off to college I went which even became a worst nightmare, and I failed out of college in actually made it there two years, but it was the same thing I started took more closely than I was drinking every day at this point in college, so between been drinking, my also experimented with cocaine anything to get feeling different. I was failing, and after I saw fell that college I basically I came home and was introduced opiate painkillers. This is when doctors started really prescribing them. Not so much for pain really for profit and so there were a lot of people doing painkillers around him..

"About it. Absolutely now? What is that? because. It seems like it's really cool. It's the combination of a place where people can find the podcast episodes where they can wait to any type of interviewer or recent appearance that I've done. But the main thing is the place for me to share my my experiences and the lessons I've learned from them and West is. I think people can take from them. And of course it's also place for people can connect with you through leaving a comment on a blog post. And I get quite a few comes from people who tell me that that have challenged them to do more because i. take their excuses away so if we're going to look at it from the point of view of a lot of blogging business coaches, it's it's kind of all over the place. There is no one theme to it other than it's all about me, sharing my story or the stories of people that. I liked respect in a way. That hopefully challenges people to take action and move forward. Fits. Take you so much for sharing gardener this. Well I'm so happy to do it. The one thing I like to make sure I remember to do is Camden I know that most people who do these shows are not doing them as as a way of getting rich, they do it out of passion or out of a sense of obligation to help people like me. Give us an opportunity to share our stories in his fire. Other so I. Just WanNa make sure you know how much I appreciate the time effort and money that you put into giving people like me a platform. Course. It's amazing. You talking to people like you like seriously. It makes my day. I can't agree with you more one one of the main reasons. Why do these interviews and why in real the people is conversations because in the more modern electronic world? We don't have conversations as much as we used. It's all texts emails direct messages. But there is an energy that comes from talking to somebody face to face a voice voice, this also a clarity because you didn't misunderstand stuff in a text message or email, and those things can get out of hand, but if you talked to somebody, and you can hear each other's voice, you can figure those things out and avoid the big the big hangouts, the big arguments or fights over will. What did what did you mean with that Smiley face? Serve that particular checks to sent me so i. I. Really enjoyed the energy I tell my clients that if if given the opportunity, always schedule your podcast interviews, the first thing in your day or the first day of your week. Because if you can do conversation, you can talk with people who get you or who at least made the effort understand you? If you can talk with somebody like that for thirty minutes or an hour, and you aren't energized. If your day is a changed in, please stop doing interviews. Is there something wrong with you? And Tony. Having an inner interview on most days right at the beginning of the day making you get hostage. People has been skewness. Better than an alarm clock. That's for sure. Because for me, I get up my my internal clock goes off. You got to emails for me this morning. Wanting to know win, the link was coming. I take my shower. Put on my dress clothes I put on my headphones and is saying..

"Were really great. I ended up having to leave because of schools. Both of them were like retired guys and the nurses h into learn. All dogs in choreography outs else. What an incredible experience man. That's i don't sing like well enough to solo but i could probably hold my own and acquire. You're and i got to sink cadences with a barbershop quartet wants because the the leader of the court set lifted our building and so he brought the quartet they did like a concert for everybody who wanted to come from the building and afterwards we just hung out and cadences and i'd never experienced that overtone thing that happens when you get close harmony. Oh my gosh makes my skin crawl. That's so incredible. How do you even describe that to other people who have experienced it before you know it just it's so it's so wild just depending on the music. It's completely different to if you've heard of voting that stuff it is crazy. It's awesome it. Should it be possible but it's yeah exactly way back in the day radio show on m._p._r. Called oh is it called music from the hearts of space it might still be on. I was listening to that regularly came on at night and they were doing some toobin throat. Stringing a david hikes aches and the harmonic choir and the album is called singing solar winds. This is from the seventy s man so i'm amazed that i can remember but yeah hearing solar winds. It was like that there were four or five singers in this sort of a monastery church in spain somewhere and they sang recorded it at night. It was fascinating. It's just beautiful. Puts me to sleep and i wake up from that sleep so refreshed. It's beautiful music. How do they do that. Our actually ashley. There's tutorials out there may destroy your voice but <hes> they have a really low base tone tone and then you have to rip into it. You have to be like in a perfect vowel shape like between an e okay so once you hit that you also hit the higher pitch overtone yeah and you'd have to end up controlling. It and it's not always easy. Uh doesn't always sound good either yeah. I imagine it's like learning to play the bagpiper something. I mean some of the stuff that you'd hear though like the there are so many different versions of it like some of it can be so bad for your voice ethics. They are built for it but i'd to go and do that something. It's beautiful when it works so beautiful yeah breathe. Yes kept you. Alive is a along user well. I can tell you what happened. I can't really explain the science on it but ah i'll tell you the story and then i'll give you my opinion because it's based on experience that you might share the difficult thing about being musicians is that we feel things things so deeply and we're we have practice in deep emotion but even as musicians even deeper emotions can grab us and when that happens it can get very scary so i was at one of those places in my life where my kids are gone off to school and i didn't have any more pets and now empty nester right. I just felt like i had completed everything that i came here to do and i was. You know actually pretty objective about things like you know what else there isn't too much left to do in life here for me and my music is kind of petering out just like things weren't there wasn't anything to grab onto and really you know find meaning in my purpose was sort of not even there and because i've spent my life as a chronically depressed person. That experience felt like i needed to end it all like there's no reason to live and it wasn't like reaction to anything was just like i'm done. I finished everything i came here to do and i didn't have any plans to take my own life but i realized that i needed to think that through pretty carefully that that i really had to give it some the tension let myself go to that place and so rather than picking up a gun or a rope or anything i sat down and i don't know why put on some music and i'll listen to the song that i love. You know a few more times before i'd lay the world and the song is a to tableau by rachmaninoff. It's actually got a name seagulls but nobody knows the name and i can't remember the office number but it's out there and <hes>. I've learned to play it because it's very important piece of music from you. It's just been there in my life for a long time so i finally <hes> you performed it in the senior recital. That was tough but that night. I sat in my chair. I put on my headphones. I let the rachmaninoff prelude just spin on sorry a tude spin on repeat and sat in the chair and i was just there with music and <hes> i began to weep and i remember crying for a long time it it was early evening and the sun was going down and the next thing i remember is that i woke up. It was completely dark. Music is still playing playing in my headphones and i got myself to bed and went to sleep the next morning and when i woke up i had this crazy sense of some reason to keep living. I don't know what the reason was but i just felt like nope. I'm awake. There's a reason to i'm awake right now. What's going on here and words become became began to run through my mind now. I have were starting going around find a lot. I mean the conversation is always going on up there except when i'm playing the piano when it stops sometimes when i'm listening it'll stop but that morning it wasn't a conversation it was like words words intentional words and i started to write them down and realized i was transcribing my own lyrics. They're limiting make and i wrote them all down. I had like four versus in a bridge and i was like well. This is cool. What am i going to do with these lyrics. 'cause this is obviously a song and the voice said well go the panel because i've got some music for you by noon. The whole thing was done. I had this silly little dorky. Song was all about you know as most music is it was about the frustration of falling in love and i wasn't anywhere near falling in love back down. Now i mean it was just like this was the weirdest experience in my life and so i got music done whatever i headed in some program. The program could play music back even though i wasn't yet proficient with it on myself on the okay. I don't like this boogie shuffle thing and i got all done and i'm like well. This is great now. I've got i've got this whole song. How in the world never performed in the voice right away said bill. You're going to do it and daniel. I've played that thing a couple of times live performances was real audiences and it's like oh man. I'm not a singer songwriter but i get around and i got it done. It's like that that crazy experience. All of a sudden changed my life. Put me back in the game of one and to keep doing what i do and that experience is sort of like the marker for music here. I think i was doing something like it. Before that time i'd even given concerts and called it music air but that was the moment where i just said no. I'm in this this. This is the way to go. People need to know the music. Is this powerful that it will stop you from taking your life provided you allow it to so so that happened man one of these days. Maybe i'll play that song again performed for somebody. It should send it to you. You can do it better than i can't disagree. I don't know why i'm saying having the roots that you see so so yeah it. It does but the reason for it now. I know there's science and all list but i'll give you my reasoning and see if it resonates for you. I've always felt that music has been minding me and allowing to unpack those deep emotions and safety and even though i wasn't playing that evening i was listening and needed the experience of going that deep. I needed to allow myself to feel that stuff so that it could like leave me so flow through sort of cleansing some people have called it like digesting the emotions and i still have suicidal ideas and it's not something that ever goes away but it's like a friend. Now it's like oh yeah. There's that again and has been that way for a long time with me and i'm learning now to do that with fear and anger as well because one of the symptoms of being depressed is that you turn out to be angry stuff so much that it comes up as anger so my practices of fear and anger are improving as well and that's easy to do with big angry music and now i'm learning to do it more or less at the piano and more in real life you know so of anger triggers me. I'll let angry music carry that so that i don't respond reactor break something or somebody and i think that's a good practice practice. I think it's good practice at least it works for me came by it honestly through trial and error and experience. There's now some science that sort of supports it so i'm a early sea music recitals right right right right and we ought to do that more. I mean as musicians don't we have a responsibility to let people know what's happening like when we sing or make music to to let people know hey. You know this might be difficult for you to hear because it can trigger stuff but that's okay. You're safe. You're sitting here in the room. Nothing's going to happen to you so just be without a- and allow the music to let you know what to do how to feel. I think as musicians we we owe it to our listeners to begin to unpack act. That's honestly it's so it's so it works so well on the allows us to just kind of open up up to the world about how we feel allows other people's connect us their emotions artis. You know everyone now feels more open to sharing how they feel about their waste because now you've opened up and they do yes yeah. That's an if you can get somebody in the audience to get that deep man. Keep playing because that's that's what we need people in the world look at the world and we you don't know how to deal with anger. We shop you know there are rappers that are better at anger than most of us you know in in the united states face. It and we wish be listening. Do you know who lizardo is. I just eliza yesterday. Oh my gosh she. She is like this amazing blues singer rapper whatever she i found her because somebody's told me about a tiny desk concert she did on n._p._r.

What's inspired your business share what howard what. How do you help people go. Oh that's a great question. Music is something we all get but it's not often an awareness that everybody has so. I love my job because i get to help people with awareness awareness of something that they already do. Most people listen to music. I'm now there are people who just don't but most of us have music are aware of it or you know. It's interesting in some way and so when you say to somebody. Do you know what your music is doing to you..
