Dr. James Lindsay on the Concept of 'Queer Theory'

"Is one of my favorite American patriots super smart and is doing a phenomenal job exposing CRT. Woke ism and post modernism. He knows better than anybody else, period. There is no one like James Lindsay James, welcome back to the program. Hey, great to be here, Charlie. You've done more in the last couple of years than almost anybody else. Actually, then anybody else on this topic, yeoman's work. And you have now, you've been more and more outspoken on this idea of queer theory. Yeah. Get as close to the mic as you can because it's super loud. What is queer theory? Queer theory is an assault on the normal. It is the belief that the assault on the normal. Yeah, yeah. So Karl Marx set up this idea, you know, a century and a half ago that having money is this terrible thing, right? Well imagine it's like a special kind of property, certain people have imagined that being considered normal is a special kind of thing. Certain people who called themselves normal, this is what it means to be normal, said, what we're going to define what normal means so that we get to be normal and you freaks don't get to have any power. And queer theories like we're going to break that down using exactly the same methods that Karl Marx arrived. What are those methods? Non academically. How someone can understand it. The main thing that they do is they call it, it's so hard to talk about this because it sounds like you're making fun of it or saying something inappropriate. They call it queering something. So they make it weird. They come in and they make it weird. So they'll show up wearing weird clothes to an event that it's inappropriate, whether it's close to. It's interesting. They will dress in the wrong genders clothing and maybe be in the Biden administration. So is that part of a strategy that you're philosophical synthesis? Yes, that's exactly what it is. The idea is to introduce a little bit of something different into the definition of the main thing. So that the main thing loses its definition.

How Gay Marriage Affects YOU

How Gay Marriage Affects YOU

"Sent me an email and they said, well, Charlie, how does this issue affect you? Why do you care? And I said, wait a second, why do you think my politics is only about me? Yeah. My politics is about the country and society and future generations. It's not just about myself. It's not just about my own agency. It's about the health of the nation as a whole. And that's a moral question, isn't it? No, absolutely. And I think if you are a fan of small government, you have to believe in strong family values, historically, the family has been the building block of society. When we're able to kind of operate and care for each other within these familial bonds, we don't need the government to step in and do things like welfare or all of these things that they've since kind of taken upon themselves as we've crumbled as a society. And I think by cheapening what marriage is, that absolutely affects society as a whole. So it's not just a question of does this affect you personally right now in the second, this is going to affect the society that we're growing up in, you know, that our children are going to be growing up. And so absolutely, this matters for everybody. It really

Lauren Chen on the GOP Abandoning the Idea of Traditional Marriage

"With us as Lauren Chen, who is now a 20 point USA contributor. Congratulations. Welcome aboard. Thank you. I'm so happy to be part of the team and also here at SAS. This is amazing. Thank you. It's conservatives, all these media outlets covering. You guys are doing an amazing job so happy to be part of the team. We're honored. You're a great talent. And the first time we met, I think, was that our young women's leadership summit. And I told Andrew. She's super smart. Let's do something together. So a lot of things we can get into. I do want to kind of piggyback on this conversation that we were having at Lauren boebert about 47 Republicans that voted for this bill and excusable voted for this bill. You haven't unique kind of take or twist on it. What is that? So here's the thing. Ever since roe was overturned, we automatically started hearing all these left to say, oh, they're coming for gay marriage, not only that, but they're also coming for interracial marriage, which is pretty crazy, especially since the boogeyman they're trying to conjure is clarence Thomas, who is in fact married to a woman. Married. Exactly. And that's really frustrating to me because, I mean, not only if you're a libertarian, you should agree that marriage should be left up to the states, right? Even if you're not socially conservative, but what they're trying to do with equating gay marriage to interracial marriage, I think, is honestly a mockery and an insult to anyone who's in an interracial relationship who comes from an interracial relationship. You know, my parents, one is white, one is Asian. My husband, he's part native and part white. So I would say I'm in an interracial relationship as well, trying to compare what I have to same sex marriage. That is not the same thing. You know, traditionally historically there's nothing about interracial marriages that has gone against the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman and so I feel like trying to throw interracial marriages into the mix. It's just a way to scare people to try to make the GOP see more extreme. And it really doesn't make any sense if you stop to just think about it for two seconds, but we know that the media, they're helping to gin up the hysteria.

A Voter's Guide for California Republicans

"I would like you to please vote for, first of all, every Republican running for Congress. It's very unlikely we'll pick up any seats, but I sure would like young Kim and Michelle Steele and Mike Garcia and David valadao and of course Kevin McCarthy is going to win. He's got a pretty secure district. But they really took a cleaver, the alleged independent redistricting committee like everything else in California is completely bonkers. And so they're trying to screw an outline the other good ones after the dust settles. There's no tell them what happened in these primaries. But do remember young kin and Michelle steel and Orange County, Mike Garcia, Dave valadao in Ventura and the central valley, Kevin McCarthy, of course. But here's the key deal. You got to vote for lawn heat Chen for controller. You got to vote for Nathan hochman for attorney general. These are two serious people, and those are the two jobs. You're not going to meet Gavin Newsom. There's no one running. I don't know who's going to be the nominee against Gavin Newsom, but you can't beat that much money.

Charlie Welcomes Lauren Chen to the Show

"We are joined by Lauren Chen, who is a social and political commentator. It's a fair way to put it. Anything but vlogger, I think about vlogger. Thank you for having me. What do you have to do to become a vlogger? I mean, pretty much just film yourself and put it on the Internet. It's a very low bar, which is why I try to avoid it. And usually what you're filming is like putting on makeup or you just do in pranks bro, so. Yeah, I mean, the thing that when I talk to younger audiences, when I know we have a societal problem, is when I ask them, what do you want to do when you grow up? They're like, I want to be an influencer. Oh no, no. And I'm like, there's nothing good that's going to come out of this. Yeah, I have my husband's little cousin. She's like 9 or ten and she wants to be a YouTuber. She actually for Christmas asked for like a ring light and stuff. And I know it's strange because I have a YouTube channel, but I'm actively trying to convince her again, so you don't want this. You don't want this. Don't do this to yourself. Yeah, I mean, if you want to know the road ahead, ask those coming back. There's nothing fulfilling. There's other things in life. So introduce yourself to our audience, you have a big following and are well respected, so you're from Canada originally. Yes, I'm originally from Canada, but I Hong Kong you said, right? You grew up in Hong Kong where my father is from. So pretty much my parents birthplaces just hate liberty right now, which is a little bit depressing. Things aren't going so great in the homeland. But yeah, I'm in Nashville. We love Tennessee and I do YouTube videos as well as write some articles. I like to talk about politics and culture and the way that the two intersect, which I think politics is downstream from culture, and I think for the longest time, the right was losing young people because we were so focused on politics and not on culture. And I wish I could just throw Thomas souls basic economics at a young person and have them be a conservative, but we know it doesn't work

Is the Gun Issue a Big One in Florida? Karol Markowicz Weighs In

"The gun issue a big issue in Florida right now? So again, it's such a funny thing in Florida where everybody owns a gun and it's really not such an issue. It's not a, it's not like it is, for example, in New York where they're going to be raising the age to 21. And it's just a different vibe. Even the people sort of that I have met that have been on the left. Again, who did not get there in the last two years, own guns defend gun ownership. It's a completely different situation.

Karol Markowicz on the Success of Governor Ron DeSantis

"With us right now, Carol markowitz, welcome back to the program. Hi, thanks so much for having me. So you moved to Florida because Iran desantis largely, right? Largely because Iran desantis leadership, yeah. So I want to talk about desantis. I was kind of talking about this with Libby from the post millennial. How much of desantis success do you think is the policies versus his ability to present them? I think it's both. I think it's the fact that he comes up with really innovative policies and stands behind them in a way that I don't think we see very often from Republican politicians. He doesn't fold at the first sign of criticism or when he gets any pushback. And so I think that we're just not used to seeing that, especially from a governor. I think that we saw some of that with Trump, but what desantis is doing is very different because just governing in that way is a different animal than just talking like

Weekend Mass Shootings Dominate News Coverage

"Killer in laguna Woods, you may not know about. Yesterday afternoon, a 60 year old Asian man, that's the only description I have from the Los Angeles Times, stood up in a luncheon honoring a former pastor at a Taiwanese Christian church in laguna Woods, which is not far from my old home in Orange County. They were welcoming back for a luncheon, Jerry Chen, excuse me, I want to get that Jerry Chandler's the fellow gave the quote the former pastor's name is here somewhere I can't find it, but Tom Kramer, who is the head of the presbytery of Los ranchos. Again, I used to be a member of this Presbyterian. Kramer did not know if the pastor was harmed in the shooting, a pastor clobbered the gunman as he tried to reload with a chair and a bunch of the so called older victims. They were all in their 60s. Those not shot tackle them in hog tied in, but it's a 60 year old Asian man is the killer there. In Harris county, Texas, the more traditional weekend shooting, two young men shooting at each other, wounding three and killing two at a Harris county flea market. At 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. So guns are everywhere, The Wall Street Journal, however, wrote about the particular evil of the buffalo shooting. There is a culture of white supremacy in the United States and people need to understand not large, but it definitely evil and it's dangerous because it attracts the unbalance like this 18 year old this was pure evil said Erie county sheriff Garcia in an app summary of the mass murder at a cyber market in Buffalo writes The Wall Street Journal. That appears to be racially motivated. The alleged shooter 18 year old Peyton gendron, the last time you'll hear his name on my show, is another young man possessed by inexplicable hatred.

"You know, as soon as I heard that the playhouse is going to mount this play, I was like, oh, that's really interesting. They have a different budget, a different sized stage, but it's still important to realize you're now not in present reality, right? So I'm just so looking forward to how that's handled. Yeah, we've been discussing that. The actors are clear on the chains. In the second half, and we're going to see how that all comes to be. And I think that production that you saw was the Goodman theater in Chicago production. It made its way to the Culver City. That was two different theaters did kind of the same production. So this play hasn't surprisingly been produced a lot. Our actress who plays Lauren in the play, her name is harmony. She is based in Chicago, and I was just asking her last night how she came to LA. You know, she told me the timeline, but of course, you know, professional actors should stop at one point in Los Angeles. Yeah. And there's two lines in the play that sum up exactly what the Asian American actor experiences in LA. And I laughed so hard when I first read it that I was in tears that Laura just nailed what it's like to be an Asian American actor in Los Angeles. And that's in the play. I won't give it away, but it's hilarious. So she, being from Chicago, she didn't see the I don't think she saw the Goodman production, but she has friends who were in that production and we had to ask her some questions. We also have access to Lauren yee herself because Lauren gave us the 2020 version of the play, which is actually different than the version you saw. Yeah. The ending is definitely different because Tim dang our director and Tom dang, no relation. Our other actor three both saw that one and go, oh, this is different. And so it says clearly that we have the 2020 version, we can ask Lauren questions if we need to, probably. Through Tim, like what does this mean and how do you want that? Yeah. Boy, I've kind of spoiled, but not spoiled things a lot like what's in there. Well, and listeners, if you're curious, I got to interview Lauren twice on this podcast, a one for Cambodian rock band, and I think the other one was for king of the yeast. In fact, I think I sent you that link. So now that you told me that she's written a different ending, I'm even more on the edge of my seat because it's like, oh, even a surprise on top of the surprise. Yeah. Go ahead. And I want to encourage folks. If you're close enough to drive to Sierra madre, you don't have to live in Los Angeles. Sarah madre since they live here, it's a quaint little one intersection downtown area. We have a new Japanese restaurant across the street from the theater. And there's other places to eat, free parking everywhere. You can really make an evening out of it. My wife and I, if we're not lazy, we might even walk, but I doubt it. It's a whole evening experience. And yes, it's a very intimate space, and you feel like you're right there with the actors, which I definitely got when I saw you in the joy luck club. So anyway, I just want to underscore for those people who are now thinking about coming to see the play, you could actually have dinner there and then just go to the plate. Yeah, it's lovely. It's a small little downtown quaint, but it has a lot of variety. I always loved coming to see the productions there. I lived actually kind of farther away. Well, anywhere in LA, we were always so so spread out. Like even the cast members like we represent every pocket of Los Angeles area. But yeah, it's a lovely way to spend the evening in the town. I know is also used a lot for film productions and television productions because of how quaint it looks. How small town it looks with its little intersection and its little center area. Oh yeah, we love that when we see that I was here when they were shooting at episode of good girls and I was like, oh, that just made my day because I had already binge watched like four seasons and then to see them right across me it's like, oh, it's just so fun. Perk of living here. I would love to hear how you got onto this path Christopher from what I read in your IMDb and stuff. I mean, you started off like a theme parks and on cruise ships. I did. Yeah. Yeah, so how did that all happen for you? Yeah, it's very interesting. I'll even transport back even to high school. Or even to fourth grade. I won't give you the short version. Well, the fourth grade, I took a field trip to see a musical production that was actually mounted by kids my age. It was a children's musical theater production. I think it was babes in toyland. And when the curtain went up and they were singing, I got all goose bumpy, my scalp got all tingly. I'm like, what is this? What's the sensation? And so my parents didn't take me to theater, so that was my first experience with live theater. And then the next year we took another field trip and it was a musical about Superman and I've loved Superman since I was age three. I still carry a Superman wallet that my age. So a musical with lowest lane singing about Superman. And then the next year, the field trip stopped to feed her. And then my dad took me. My dad took me to production of finian's rainbow and he credits himself for introduces me theater and I let him think that, which is fine. But, you know, I just like to take because I got to get my fix this year and so I was a fan up until age 14 freshman year of high school in Northern California. And this is kind of an accident. I, on a personal dare, there was a math student. The star math student in my math class who I happened to also be Chinese in American. His name was Peter, and he announced he was trying for out for the High School Musical. At the high school. And I thought, well, if he can try out for the musical, I can travel for the musical. I had no clue what I was doing. I was so nervous. I almost passed out at the callback. Somehow I got cast, and then I was hooked as a hobby. You know, to do performing as a hobby. And then what musical was that? It was the musical that year was how to succeed in business without really trying. Yeah. And I was tall for my favorite Morris. Robert Morris, he just passed away. Yeah, he just passed away. He's the definitive JPMorgan. And that play acts, it's very dated nowadays, but it won a Pulitzer for its time in the 60s. And they made a movie of it too. And it's a fun play with all this high schoolers playing executives. I got to be an executive because I was taller. And then the costume designer had to drop out, who was playing a role in the play. And I took over his role, and I would stand on stage and say these lines that I had no understanding what I was saying. I didn't understand my lines. I just spec them out. But then I was hooked and I did it as a hobby. I tried out for the next musical in the summer at the community theater in town. It was Oliver and then I kind of full circle came back and did babes in toyland at that same theater and then yeah and then abruptly though we moved I had already been to two different high schools freshman year, one high school. This is in the Silicon Valley, Sunnyvale, California, and Cupertino, California up north. And we, my brother and sister and I were going to live with our father in Cleveland, Ohio. And so I was like, wow, this is, you know, my mom was getting remarried and moving down to LA. And we were going to live with our dad. And our worlds were all.

"So he did it for a little bit, some minor success and some injuries that happened to and some unfortunate like some bad luck too, but he started playing for the Miami hurricanes in college, so they followed that season one. In season two, they follow him when he goes to play for the Canadian football league for a little bit. And also in season two, when things don't work out with football, he then starts exploring the family business, which is professional wrestling. His father was a professional wrestler. Oh yeah, I grew up watching his dad, rocky soul man Johnson and his father in law, Peter maivia. Yeah, you know the characters. They have so many recreation characters. Yeah. The real names you know, those are the main characters in the series season one and two. Then you might know this and I think the most Dwayne Johnson fans may or may not know that he didn't want to go into wrestling. It just kind of happened and season two starts to explore that. And he wasn't The Rock at first. They reveal some of his first wrestling characters. But yeah, season one and season two both are, you can stream all over the world on peacock for free and Hulu for free. And it's a fun, very heartwarming series. And it's interesting because most previous retrospective series, the grown-up characters just done as a voice-over, like Young Sheldon and everybody's Chris. Wonder years, but this one he has an active part in the show, usually to introduce the lessons and things he learned in the flashbacks, like growing up with his father, the different areas he lived in his mother and his grandmother and lucky for me because I'm part of that contemporary group. It's me Randall park, actress Chelsea crisp from the people might remember as the neighbor honey from fresh off the boat. She started with us. Oh yeah, yeah. She started with Randall park and also with our two showrunners worked on that show too, fresh off the boat. We have the natsuka Khan. Is showrunner and she was the director of the episodes that segments that I did in Atlanta, she was the one who directed me, both season one, season two, and then Jeff Chang, who manned the other flashback series. And here's a fun fact. This is due to the COVID lockdown. The originally wanted to shoot in the U.S. and instead of Atlanta, I think they wanted to shoot here in LA, but the contemporary parts are shot in LA with Dwayne Johnson, ran a park, Chelsea crisp and I and other characters and other production team. But all the flashbacks that happen in Hawaii, Pennsylvania and Nashville and Florida and Canada. They're all shot in Australia. Oh. And they blend it all. Some people have noticed that they've caught that because I think it's listed at the end credits, but you can't really tell when you watch the show, but there's a combination of New Zealand actors, Australian actors, U.S. actors who have to fly out there and quarantine for two weeks and so it's all blended together to look like it's the U.S. and the 80s, 90s and 2032 in the future. Well, now you've really piqued my interest in this series. We do have Hulu plus so I'm going to go back and start watching it. I want to get back to the play because king of the yeast by playwright Lauren Yi is one of my favorite plays that I've seen in the last 5, ten years. Wow. I don't know if you know the history of it coming to the Sierra madre playhouse, but the production that you were in pre-pandemic of the joy luck club directed by Tim dang, that just broke all box office records of this tiny little local theater and they're doing dames at sea. And at least me, I didn't have a whole lot of interest in seeing those kind of plays, but then when they produced joy luck club, you know, that's a classic, wonderful book, and movie. Yeah, it was great to see it as a stage play from what I understand, the theater was like, you know what? This is the first time in the long history of this theater. Well, we've sold out every show and extended two weeks, like what? So afterwards, they formed an Asian American advisory board, and they said, okay, it's obvious to us now that we are on the northeast corner of the 6 two 6 area code. Yes. There's all these people that came for the first time to the serum magic playhouse because we had this Asian American theme play. What else could we produce? Because I've been tied to helping promote east west players productions over the last several years. I said, okay, I'm just going to throw it out there. I mean, joy luck club is kind of a long time ago. If you want to do something that's much more contemporary that I think is fantastic, it's Lauren yeast king of the yeast. You know, whatever weight that I carry so just before the pandemic they announced they were going to do it, Tim dang was coming back to direct it and then everything shut down. So I'm beyond excited, Christopher, that people are going to get to see this play who, you know, have somehow missed it because it's so, so good. And what I would love for you to comment on is the fact that you never got to see the play before being cast in it, right? Do I have that correct? That is correct, yeah. I'm actually kind of a new convert to Lauren Yi and her work before the pandemic. I did get to see her lauded play Cambodian rock band. Oh, you saw that in San Diego, the more recent cast and iteration that also had a short run in New York. And then I saw Lauren yee's great leap at the combined production of east west players at the Pasadena playhouse in Pasadena. I saw that production 5 times because I the reason why is there's a part not to give anything away but towards the end of the play that absolutely wrecked me like just emotionally just destroyed me. And I like that feeling so I kept going back and bringing friends and watch them get wrecked emotionally as well. So I did that 5 times there and then I ran down to see there was a production not too long after that down in San Diego at the cygnet theater and I saw her greatly there and it was equally effective. And I just found out that the scene designer of that production in San Diego of the great leap is our scene design for king of these..

"As of 2022, we have partnered with UCLA's Asian American study center, which will eventually archive all of our episodes for future listeners and researchers. And as always, I'm your host, Ken thong. Welcome to episode 365. My guess this episode is Christopher Chen. He was born into kelp, Illinois, but grew up in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Sunnyvale, California, and Cleveland heights, Ohio. Christopher got his start as a professional singer and dancer in reviews for theme parks and cruise ships, and after that, in musical theater. He studied theater at northwestern university in Illinois and happened to be classmates with David Schwimmer of Friends fame and former international supermodel Cindy Crawford who back then was get this a chemical engineering major. I'm not sure because I forgot to ask him if Christopher ever asked Cindy Crawford out on a date, but I'm just going to assume he did. Christopher is one of the hardest working, frequently booked actors that at least I know, with roles in movies on TV in commercials and in stage place. I first noticed him as an ace bowler and prize winning tango dancer in a popular Geico commercial, which I'm sure many of you have seen. But then I saw him up close when he was part of the outstanding cast of the joy luck club, which was produced at the Sierra madre playhouse in 2019 before the pandemic shut everything down. Starting May 20th, Christopher will be playing multiple roles in acclaimed American playwright Lauren yee's provocative and hilarious play king of the yeast at the Sierra madre playhouse. Since that's become one of my all time favorite plays and because Christopher and I, our friends on Facebook, I knew that I had to bring him onto my podcast. You'll not only learn what happened to him after the acting bug bit him when he was a little boy. But why he such a huge fan of Lauren yee's work and how king of the yeast brings some really fun and unique challenges for director Tim dang the cast and the crew. If you're a new listener, welcome. And if you're here because you're a good friend or a big fan of Christopher's, I'll pray for you. I'm kidding. Thanks so much for joining him and I in this lively conversation. And welcome back to all of you loyal regulars. Thanks so much for subscribing to my show, and for taking the time to listen to these conversations each week. Please remember to share links of some of your favorite episodes, and to rate and review us on Apple podcasts, Spotify, or whatever podcast platform you're using. And of course, I especially love all of you who've become my patrons through Patreon dot com. Your financial gifts each month make it so much easier to do this show after all these years. Speaking of years, this episode is dropping at the start of my 8th year of finding an inviting Asian American culture makers and shapers to enlighten and entertain you. When I first launched this show within director and co producer Christopher Wong in May of 2015, I knew that it would take constant vigilance to identify and contact enough guests to fill each year's 52 slots. I've gotten much better at finding contact information and reaching out to potential guests, but trust me when I say that I can sometimes feel discouraged by either a lack of response or more rarely, just an outright refusal. But those disappointments only serve to make me that much more grateful when someone agrees to let me interview them for an hour, especially people who've never heard of me, and believe me, they are legion, or who've never heard of or listened to my show. In our early years, Christopher and I went out of our way to provide a platform for activists, artists, actors, writers, and filmmakers. It was slow going, but that was to be expected. These days, though, not a month goes by, were an Asian American author or their publisher contacts me about appearing on my show, and a steady stream of Asian American independent filmmakers have also come to see this podcast as a platform that's eager to showcase their projects. Just this afternoon, I got a verbal commitment from Congress member Judy Chu to come on in the near future to talk about the work she's involved with right now to create an AAPI museum within the Smithsonian. How cool is that? Let me just throw a few stats at you, so you have a better idea of where my podcast is at the start of our 8th year. All told, our episodes have been downloaded 580,324 times. That since we started in 2015. Hopefully, we will pass a million downloads threshold in the next four years and maybe even sooner. As I mentioned earlier this year, podcast rating site listen note says that my podcast is one of the top 1.5% most popular shows out of 2 million 836,175 podcasts in the world. Ranked by what they call the listen score, which is the estimated popularity score. And my show has a listen score itself of 44 out of a hundred, which isn't bad, but leaves plenty of room for improvement. Since this past January, we've averaged 8600 downloads per month. So some months, just a little bit under 7000, but some months almost 10,000. This means that from January to the end of April, we've had 34,400 downloads. These range from the most current episodes to ones going all the way back to our very first year. I think adding the search feature as well as the most popular and highly recommended tabs has fueled the interest in older episodes. I just think that's amazing, and it's cool. Just this year, the lion's share of our listeners are definitely here in the United States, but would you have guessed that Hong Kong comes in a distant second?.

Who Is Dr. Andrei Illarionov, Former Adviser to Vladimir Putin?

"He is a former economic adviser to Russia's acting prime minister jago gadar, chief economic adviser to Russian prime minister Viktor Chen midin and chief economic adviser to Vladimir Putin, doctor Andre il lardo hilaria. Welcome to America first. Thank you very much. Sebastian for inviting me. You are very, very welcome. You have an illustrious resume. I have three pages worth of your qualifications in front of me. We do not have many people with your prior access inside the Kremlin speaking out on American media regarding the events occurring in Ukraine. So let's start at the beginning. Will you walk us through our millions of listeners and viewers across the country, your background before you came to the United States, your qualifications, you've studied in the UK and Austria at Stanford University. So may I ask you just to introduce yourself to our listeners? I'm going to buy my training and I spent most of my time at The Economist and studying economic policy inviting on economic policy. You mentioned some of the people whom I advise to. For almost a TSI was economic adviser to current Russian president. And that time Russia was able to have a pretty remarkable economic growth that double GDP of the country and GDP per CAPiTA was in ten years. It was a little economic miracle for the Russian economy. But it was everything in the past. Since 2008, after three years after my departure, a Russian economy went into stagnation and seeing them economic growth of Russia was not more than 1% per year on average. So instead of doubling GDP within ten years, it's a kind of 10% growth. So 7 to 8% per year country was growing about 1%. It wasn't 1% per year. Now definitely it's a crisis and the intentions of the Russian leadership and first of all of mister Putin right now is very opposite to what you have demonstrated in your initial slight when Putin was talking about a little bit about democracy, freedom or whatever. It's definitely wrong. It's Putin does not pursue this goals anymore. He's intentions are imperialistic. His intentions are conquering the neighboring country, establishing a new world

DOJ Shuts Down China-Focused Anti-Espionage Program

"The Department of Justice Biden's Department of Justice is shutting down and anti espionage program aimed at China. Why? Wait till you hear this because they've become a little concerned about using racial profiling. They're worried that their stereotyping the Chinese. Now, this to me is pathological behavior. Over the last few years, the United States has been prosecuting various scientists who have been kind of in league with China, working for China, and at the same time not disclosing their ties to China. Now, it is possible for researchers to work on behalf of China, but there is a disclosure requirement. And so there have been a number of high profile prosecutions of academics and researchers who have made the grand applications, but not disclosed, not revealed that they are turning over their information to the Chinese. In fact, ultimately to the Chinese Communist Party. Last December jury found the former chair of Harvard's chemistry department, Charles lieber, guilty about lying to federal officials, filing false tax returns, this is exactly what this DoJ program was aimed at uncovering. Now it's true that they sometimes have had a case that has failed. They dropped all charges against an MIT mechanical engineering professor named gang Chen. Who was indicted for concealing his ties to Chinese programs. There's an ongoing case against a guy named Franklin Tao, a University of Kansas chemical engineering professor and he goes to trial soon. But right while this program was humming along and its aimed at dealing with the real problem and the problem is that China is aggressively engaged in academic and industrial espionage. So no one denies that simple fact. But the DoJ sort of almost without warning has shut down its program. It's law enforcement program for finding and discovering and prosecuting this Chinese this espionage on behalf of China.

"He insisted, so I said, let's play and see what happens. The bray was impressed with Chen's focus and self confidence. He knows what he needs, so the program's designed themselves quite easily with him. She says. When she saw him perform the program in the 2019 2020 season, I was blown away by his performance. I thought right away that this is going to be a magical moment at the world championships in Montreal. That didn't happen, but Chen had his moment with the program in Beijing instead. Sam channard worked with Chen, while he was in Montreal to bring out the performer in him, the fast and boisterous dance sequence at the end the audience and judge pleaser was largely Chennai's effort to show a different side of Chan since he knew Chen's athletic prowess would already be evident. He admits that he had to Google Chen's name at first, since, as a hip hop dancer he wasn't as familiar with the headliners in the skating world, I thought he really needed to push his artistic side, he says. When you're doing solo skating, there is so much focus on the athletic side of it. But that artistic side is a little left behind. I tried to see if he can dance and perform when he is getting ready to jump. So it would be easier to tell the story an easier to keep the audience involved in what he was trying to do on the ice. When skaters understand the blend of the two, this is the perfect recipe for gold. He says. Indeed, for Chen, the gold brings him full circle from his starred in skating as a child on the practice rink for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and from his disappointing 5th place finish at his first Olympics in 2018. Its validation for the long hours, his mother spent driving young Chen from their home and Salt Lake City to Los Angeles, a couple of times a month, where he started taking lessons when he was 12. My mom has been with me since the first day I stepped on the ice, and even now is right by my side, he told time. When I was 12, we didn't have the finances to afford flights, so driving was the only way to get me back and forth at the time. It finally paid off. With gold..

Report Finds 'Abuses of Discretion' in Kim Foxx Handling of Jussie Smollett Case

"I've talked before about the Jussie Smollett. Case in the Jussie Smollett verdict. Well, what I haven't talked is about is the responsibility. And the abrogation of duty and the shenanigans that have been pulled by Kim flocks, who was the Cook County state attorney, the supposed prosecutor of Jesse Smollett. The good thing is that there's now a report by Dan Webb, Dan Webb is a special prosecutor who was appointed. This is the guy who prosecuted Smollett. But what he does is he goes back and he looks not just at the small lead case, but he's done a report on the behavior of the office of Kim fox, and he finds all kinds of improprieties. Let's remember, let's refresh our memory when Smollett was first busted by the cops. And they had the goods on him. They had all the evidence that was eventually presented in the trial, but nevertheless, Kim Foxx's office a dismissed the 16 count felony indictment. In fact, had no requirement that Smollett either plead guilty or accept any responsibility. They really gave Smollett no real punishment. They just gave him essentially 15 hour 15, one 5. I had over a thousand hours by the way of community service. 15 hours of community service, and then they said, listen, you paid a $10,000 bond doing a forfeit that. So Jussie Smollett was gonna get off Scot free. Now, Dan Webb looks into the behavior of Kim Fox, and he finds all kinds of violations. First of all, Kim frocks from the beginning was conspiring with a couple of other leftists, a woman named Christina Chen. By the way, this is Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, and a woman named Cheryl and I fill whose president and director counsel of the NAACP legal defense fund. So this is how the left works in concert in order in this case. They knew that Jussie Smollett was guilty, but their idea was he's promoting our narrative. You know, racism everywhere, even if you had to make it up. So they're like, how do we get this guy off? So kitten Fox, for example, had said publicly, and you really see the level of public deceit, because she publicly said that I've recused myself from the case. She said, you know, yes, I did contact Smollett sister. I was in contact with the family when I thought he was a victim. But once I realized he was a suspect that we were looking into him as the possible perpetrator, I had no contact whatsoever with the family, and Dan Webb basically says this is a flat out lie. He points out that on multiple occasions, I think he identifies at least three that Kim Fox continued to maintain contact with Jussie Smollett's sister. And this he says was an abuse of

Work of the night failed department of sanitation or they might not be in the correct universe for them but at least they're no longer in our universe which is the important thing. These francs have scattered back through every possible plane of existence. Living different lives making different choices. A nearly infinite variation on the theme of frank chen one frank bought a subway franchise then lost it during one of the many once in a lifetime. Financial collapses in his lifetime. He moved in with his brother took to painting late at night. He only ever sold one painting at a local art fair where he had on a whim rented a table. The woman who bought the painting loved it very much and passed it onto her son. Who put it away in a closet and forgot about it. One frank was the president of the united states. There's basically a universe where each of us is the president. So that's not that surprising. Frank is an okay president. These pretty good at speeches and everyone likes the presidential parakeets but his policy platform of war on trees complete deforestation. now is a little more controversial. One frank was the composer for movies. Although he never composed for anything anyone would have heard of he mostly scored. Tv movies hallmark staff or reality show specials about cute cats. He didn't mind. He was not interested in artistic respect. Mostly he'd liked being able to play his instruments and get paid for it. One frank was a park ranger who gave tours for children showing them the paw tracks of local animals and teaching them what to do if they ever got lost in the woods. You should cry. He would say sometimes it's good to cry and you'll feel like you want to when you feel like you want to cry. You should do it. He had other advice of course but he did want it. Clear to them that they could always cry. One frank ran away from home as a teenager. Move to new york changed his name. Life was hard for a long time. Then it got a little easier. It was never completely okay that he had to run away that he had to escape but he found a life for himself and that was enough for him. A baker a long-term patient at a care facility a grad student in design and architecture a mayor of a mid sized city a father of three of one of zero dead at twelve at twenty at thirty seven at fifty four at eighty never died and never will all of these.

China Is Limiting Kids Playing Video Games to 3 Hours a Week

"On wednesday. New rules took effect in china that severely restrict the amount of time. Young people can play video games online. Between friday and sunday gamers under eighteen years old will only be allowed to play between eight pm and nine pm the rest of the week. They won't be allowed to play at all. The regulation will also require all users to register using their real names and government issued. Id's it's of beijing's larger efforts to crack down on the growing power of tech firms and insert itself into the private lives of chinese citizens joining us to discuss how these new rules are being received. And what it means for. Gamers and gaming companies alike is the wall street. Journal's deputy china bureau chief josh chen hi josh. How are you so josh. This is the first time. China has restricted gaming for minors in two thousand nineteen limited playtime to ninety minutes on weekdays and it also limited. How much money they could spend on video games. So we're these new. Even more restrictive rules. A surprise was in wasn't a surprise last month. State media outlet published a commentary described video games as quote unquote opium of the mind and that triggered a pretty major sell off shares of gaming companies ten cent which is china's biggest gaming company. I think fell somewhere around. Eleven percent in prior to that china's leader xi jinping has taken aim at video games as a danger to the development of chinese youth. So we've suspected for a while it's something might becoming but what was surprising was just how strict and specific these restrictions were three hours is pretty miserly. Yeah these new restrictive rules. How is china planning on enforcing them in. That's a really good question. They haven't been specific about it and the way that things often work in china's at the communist party will come up with rules and then sort of leave it up to the internet companies themselves to figure out how to enforce

We made a sling bitty baby that she would carry around her bitty baby in that looked like mommy sling that she wrote around in and she made clothes for bitty baby and she just carried her everywhere and went along on all these different things and they did all kinds of things. It really provides her this fun and nurturing way to enact these moments of like and nurture better so important and bitty baby is super high quality and very hug. -able soft really the dolls and of course the lessons are learning. These are really meant to last. Plus this year bitty baby got a whole new look and new designs. A new colors plus like matching clothes for the child. So you can coordinate look if you want. They also have called these really great modern accessories with real wood furniture..

"I grew up with you. Know a pretty typical tiger parents as well very strict A lot of rules very high expectations. And so even though i'm second generation so i knew i would like loosen up a little but i saw a lot of benefits to that type of parenting you know and and also like my sort of conservative. Religious upbringing really taught me like your role as a parent is to raise your child to be obedient to be morally upright all those things and so i definitely came at parenting with his mindset of like i need to get it right. You know. i'm. I'm not going to let my kids run all over me. I'm going to you know. Just make sure that they turn out okay and i think that mentality was really damaging because then that really pushed me to want to control like it's by whatever means necessary right so i was. I thought it was all justified. Because i was doing it for the greater good and doing it for you know to help them. Stay on the straight narrow path or whatever So yeah i. I was really a discount up in in that mentality and it wasn't until my children really started pushing back and saying we're not having any of this and of course is apparent thought. Well that just means. I need to come down harder okay. This punishment isn't working. Well let's up the ante and make it even more painful for you and it was just causing so much conflict and tension in my relationship especially with my oldest child and so I think a lot of it had to do with me. Coming to a personal a breakthrough. I guess with my own healing in terms of understanding what love was and sort of deconstructing some of my religious beliefs for one and really understanding that love is not about control. Love is about freedom and empathy and compassion and grace and all those

"As you may remember last fall a judgment was handed down against the sheriff secret police and the city of night vale on behalf of the family of frank chen frank was murdered by an unknown perpetrator almost ten years ago and the judge ruled that night ville must produce a living frank chen exactly as he was the day he died within one year or ownership of the town of knight vale will be handed in full to the chin family a few months ago the sheriff secret police claimed to have successfully returned frank chen but it turned out that they had only cloned him several times this was ruled not to count and so the frank clones were released into the world to live their lives as they saw fit meanwhile the deadline still hung over the town government and the sheriff but today sheriff sam made a surprise announcement we did it for real this time said the sheriff we have frank chedda exactly as he was the day he died. So that's taken care of no biggie. We did a great job and we should feel great about it. No sign of frank at the press conference so we will keep you updated as we know more but first a word from our sponsors. It's the summer sales event in the woods. That's right everything must go trees. Squirrels caves boss. We must be crazy to be setting prices this low and elm for fifteen hundred dollars top soil for eight monthly payments of nine ninety nine. Who allowed us to sell it. This discount lou allowed us to sell it all. What right do we have to this land. What right do we have to commodified this world. We share is imaginary prophet and excuse for real suffering. We say who cares. Grab a pine cone for ten cents. Take a bear for five hundred dollars. The prices are arbitrary because currency is arbitrary but we value it more than fragile life porcupines or buy one get one free by three logs and iraq for absolutely nothing. These deals can't be beat. That deer costs sixteen dollars. That's a sixteen dollar deer. That other deer costs eighteen dollars. The to dear look basically identical but there is a difference and that difference is two dollars the summer sales event in the woods. Everything must go and it will sooner than we think. This has been a word from our sponsors. All parties gathered at the courthouse under the watchful eye of judge chaplain. Sheriff sam wheeled forward adali with a canvas draped shape on top. That wriggled and made grunting. Sounds the chen. Family sat looking suspiciously at sam. Dongcheng tapped his foot impatiently. Mei-chen poked her father. Norman chen and whispered something to which the older chin shook his head and rolled his eyes little. Lyle chen ran in circles. Living out some story only he was aware of sheriff. Sam removed canvas with a flourish and there. In fact was frank chen. His mouth had been covered to prevent him from ruining the surprise once he was again able to talk. He shouted what in the world is going on. Who are all you people. He looked over at the chen family and his face creased in panic and concern dawn. Is that you. why do you look like that. You're you're so old. Was i in a coma. Judge rachelle chaplain her long face with dark serious lines about the is said sternly to sheriff. Sam explain yourself. Judge rochelle chaplain is well liked because in her. Eight years of service as our county's only judge. She is always tough but fair. Sheriff sam explained that it was all quite simple working with staff from the museum of forbidden technology. They had put together a time machine using the time machine. They had gone back. Nine years and removed frank chin from his place and time mere moments before his death and so they fulfilled the judicial order. Exactly as stated judge nathaniel. Keaton his to rubik face with a ghost of a mustache said offhandedly to frank chen and is this. You know True or whatever judge. Keaton is disliked because in eight years of service as our county's only judge he is always equivocating and taking sides. I guess said frank. Chen was was about to be murdered. That's super scary so I'm glad to be here. Is that little. May he said he were five. When i last saw you do you remember. Your uncle despite herself may ran forward in hugged frank and both began to cry. It's him may said i know it. It's not a trick it's him. it's him well. This is incredible. I can't wait to talk this over with my boyfriend. Carlos he's a scientist you know so. He probably knows all about time travel and any complications. It can cause sheriff. Pamela wind chill nodded a job. Well done i'd say she did say then. She opened a trap door in the courthouse floor and disappeared through it more on this. If there is more seems like the story might be finished. Let's have a look at the dues. Big changes afoot at the moonlight all night diner. The new owner will be. Oh hey steve carlsberg. Aw i love steve always have just a just a great guy he will be running the place along with his wife. Diane creighton and his stepson.

"See what. An audio engineer could do In terms of snow shaping. The art is crafting is Is the artistic craft too. And that's when my priorities shift from being a pianist trying to be a pietas while not trying trying to be a concert. Pianist as career to being nabiel edgy art. And i think that's all that's that's there's nothing wrong with changing career while you're in college s with your And i don't regret not being of yannis. Do you feel like your experience as a performer. Informs your work as an audio engineer. Yeah i the twenty years of musical training that i received a Pena's that has. It helped me so martian in my career as an engineer because right especially nowadays people trust engineers who are musicians who knows southbound and who knows the music and just being a musician you have so much more I wouldn't say leverage but you know it's so much better than hiring someone who came from a background doesn't know anything about music and only the technical side and i've been doing a lot surprisingly i'm doing you a lot of tuning these days for for engineers and i know that i've worked with and I think my training as a musician. You know all the the side reading the site saying old acquire actually helped to Just have a pair of trained years would help you so much as an engineer. You mentioned that you do quite a bit of freelancing as well what are some of the strategies that you have or experiences good or bad you've had when negotiating with clients so it's very normal. It's a eighty percent of the times client. Couldn't pay you for what you asked for. And you know it's very understandable because it's hard to be a musician making money so oftentimes they would give you a project and it was a. Hey i can only pay you three hundred dollars but you know it's the if you're to call them it's going to be. Let's say a six hundred dollar fee so in that situation you don't wanna lose the client But you also don't want to put yourself at the lower value than what you deserve. So oftentimes i will tell them. Hey like for this project. I will normally charge amount of feet but i understand your difficulties And i like you as a client or as a musician. I love you. I would do it for your fee as a friend discount or as a musician discount. And that way you know you're not lowering your value. And they know that you're doing them a favor which would probably come in handy in the future. They will appreciate your help. Your understanding is always good to just make a friend. But i don't know i wasn't able to. I mean sometimes. I try to stick to my feet just because i think they could afford it like you've l. Asked me to do something. I wouldn't give them a huge discount but you know for independent musicians is really hard for them. So i try you know. Try to to to to to to stick to a lower fee and to do the project instead of you know not working with them and that's kind of a. It's a constant struggle and it's a compromise. Do you find that by Making those compromises you end up with more clients. It's kinda hard to tell because you don't know what didn't happen. You know you know what's the otherwise situation. But i think that makes me feel better because we are not in this music. All of us were not in this music industry to be milliner. We're doing it for art. So tell sometimes is very necessary to sacrifice the money and the income for for other more important reasons as an artist. And it's easier for me now. Because i have this giga snl. So i can afford to take a lower rate at other gates. Which is what i want to do in the future Or have a source of income. That i can support myself and have another outlet where i can support my artistic needs by. Yeah i understand. it's a it's difficult. it's a balanced. We all kind of have to just keep working on it. Yeah and probably finding your own like balance point of value versus time exactly exactly. Yeah well tom thank you so much for joining us in for sharing all of your experience a lot of great stuff here and i hope that the students really take your words to heart. Thank you thanks. Thanks so much. I'm really happy to be talking to you and maybe give some. Hopefully the students will something helpful in our conversation. Thinks tongue have a great day.

Yeah thanks for having me here. Really good to see you again Do let's get started. And i'd really love to hear what your life looks like right now. Okay so i actually just started working two weeks ago We i took a very long break while. Not you know not that i want you. But because of covid oh. My work got suspended at the end of march. And there hasn't been any work that i was able to do because a lot of stuff is in the studio lot of interacting with people So i was on break up until two weeks ago An an snl started to get ready for the shows which happened The first show happened last week so we started preparing for died And there's another place that i worked at the medicine for Classical music so I work at a studio there. And we did a couple of sessions last week and the week before so right now things are still kinda as still picking up Getting busy but not as busy as before covid. Yeah that's why. I'm glad that you're able to get to work and do some more of that again. I yeah me too. It's it's really a feels a little strange Getting back to work but you know it takes time to get used to. Yeah so what was the. What was your schedule. Like before covid. Just throw comparison sure Before kobe i was very busy I was working almost every day. And i was traveling a lot for work too so I work at now doing show week for two days a week before but right now i doing a different jobs. So i'm working three days a week so Before covid i had two days now two or three weeks a month I was working at a recording recording studios one is called up tavern and they focus on New music jazz classical also work at dimona center. I just mission They do. Broadway shows cast albums. A larger orchestra recordings Emphasized that i also worked for this company called music. Mix mobile there A broadcast Recording company they travel around the country. Doing a rita shows things like you know. The iheartradio concerts super bowl. Nba all star and a bunch of summer festivals. So i worked for that company. Doing portal's operations. So i've been traveling a lot with them swell and besides that is just you know. Little mix and editing gigs. That i get from engineers that i know a musicians so yeah life before cohen was pretty busy and then you know i got to take a break from that and pick up you know my life take plans sometime with edwin. So that was nice. Yeah probably sounds like you had a lot going on so that was probably a bit of a relief in so yeah it was it was it was getting. It was getting really busy. I think before covid. I was working two months straight with no break. Oh my gosh have yeah. It's good to be busy but you know when you're working every day and just trying to find a day to do laundry it. Yeah so how did you keep yourself organized especially with traveling and going from place to place. Because i can imagine. That's probably yeah a lot. That's the challenge I rely on a calendar. Allot google calendar of. That's that was ninety percent of my life Whenever i hear about a giga half depending on calendar immediately because after why otherwise you know few minutes later you forget about it and is also very important for me to keep a good balance between my and work I tried to go to the gym day before a read That's impressive yeah it is. It's very hard because sometimes you you know you go to work At night or at eight. Am and you finish at eight. And you're like oh. I could go home. Relax or i could go to jam and work on my body and what you do. So it's it's definitely it takes disciplines but it's very important especially for the line of work that we're in. It's very important to stay healthy Have a good diet that will make everything better So you mentioned a bunch of different organizations that you work for do. Could you talk a little bit more about how you got from graduating school to now working for all these different places in. You're based in new york is that right. Yes yeah. I'm here full-time all the time. So kind of a. It's a journey i graduated. I finished my school. Coursework for recording arts An acoustic semesters acoustics in two thousand fifteen But dot year. I didn't do my piano recital. So after two thousand fifteen. I was working at the company doing audiovisual system design. Telephone system designed An acoustics is office job. So i was doing that for almost fulltime while preparing for my recital in two thousand sixteen. So that your i. After i finished my side my recital. I realized that i hated that job. A not where i wanted to be. I have to make was telling me that i have to move to new york and just pursue what i want in life and also just start a career that i really love so after my settle was stunned I it was actually. I got lucky because the company that i was working for. They opened an office in new york city. And i asked to transfer this office. So i can you know have income while looking for other jobs in music and audio so i moved to new york That summer the summer of two thousand sixteen and still working for that company. And i just started to go out. I know that have a new york. Everything's about connection pretty sure everywhere is the same is.

"The book you do a really incredible job of giving the as sexuality. . One one that doesn't necessary without dumbing down or oversimplifying thing I think for me my biggest takeaway sounds obvious in hindsight. . Biggest takeaway is how many different ways there are to be a sexual and I hate to say it. . But I did not know that it was this umbrella term that encompasses such a broad range of experiences you find a that is a common misconception. . It is so common and you know there's part of me that's leg come on everyone it's been a while like we should be caught up. . There's this other part of me that is so so synthetic and I. . Think. . Some of it has to do with language right because a sexual it's not a word someone made up. . You know people already have associations with it. . So it's just not intuitive that you would call someone who maybe has positive sexual experiences a sexual, , right? ? Just semantic level people are like, , what does that mean? ? So I totally understand why people would not understand. . It's an umbrella term would not intuitively know that there's such diverse range of experiences under that but also. . I feel like it is time for us to be having that conversation and moving away from about one image of asexuality even for people who think they know what it means they think it means like, , Oh, , you just don't like sexy repulsed by sex, , but it's so much more than that. . That's such a great point before reading the book I would've told you that asexual people do not have any desire for sex or romantic relationships and that is the case for. Some, . , but in no means the entire community. . Do you mind just giving us the definition that like we should be thinking of for a sexuality? ? Absolutely. . So the official definition is a sexuality means you don't experience sexual attraction which seems simple enough right but then you have to be like, , okay what is sexual attraction and most people think it means, , oh, , you just are repulsed by Sax you don't WanNa have sex, , but sexual attraction is not the only reason to have. . Sachs. . Example I always use which I, don't , love as metaphor, , but it was just a food better for it. . There's foods that you love and you're attracted to quote unquote there's food repulsed by and there are some food that like they taste fine. . But because you associate them with like your best friends in college in like that social senior, , there's like an emotional reason while I won't speak for you. . I'm an emotional eater, , right? So ? I feel like there's all these wants is there to make it really simple. . It's possible to not experience sexual attraction without being repulsed by SAX to be basically sex in different but because there's so many other reasons to have sachs. . Emotional reasons like you might be bored or you really love someone or you want to feel attractive desired sexy that can hide for many people donate sexuality, , and that's all of these nuances and all of these complexities I think for many people maclear community we first began to discover and understand our sexual orientation through sexual attraction. . Only to oversimplify right I'm sexually attracted to men I must be gay without that component. . Can you talk about how you spurious attraction and like what you base those feelings on? ? That something that's really complicated. . So one thing with sexuality is that in some ways de orientation is based on what you don't experience. . So then you have to kind of explain what is it? ? You don't, , which is beard philosophical question rape. . So for me like when I feel attracted someone this romantic sense, , it's basically like having a crush on them right <hes> like I want to date them like I could see as being romantic partners and I even have an. . Aesthetic type you know I always say like do not get me wrong. . I have a type it's not like everyone looks the same to me. . Some people are hot. . Some people are less heart don't get me wrong but there's not like a sexual motivation for it and I think that can be really really hard for people to feel out and understand can be so many nuances and also want to make clear that being a sexual is not the same as. . Being a romantic because Saxon. . Romance aren't the same right I think most people would agree so many people sexual and they are say Hetero matic or their pan romantic or by romantic, , and there are some people who is actual are a romantic thing that they just don't expand traumatic attraction to others the of course, , they might love their friends at their family very much. . It's so interesting compared to non x people to have to come out of the closet because. . We can discuss our sexuality talking about the broader terms, , dating relationships, , and yet you coming out as half discuss sex sex has to be in the conversation. . Does that pose challenges like say parents when you don't want to talk about sex with them? ? Yeah absolutely. . So the funny thing is my parents just don't know the book is about it's funny because if you Google my name like books and come up with into second jewel, , it'll stay on the jacket copy. . You know in her own experience as actual journalists but I'm just not out to my parents in part because it just it really feels like I'd be talking to them about my sex life in a way that I don't think it would be the case if I were is actual or vice actual for example, , and I've talked to other aces about it and they've said the same thing where it feels almost more inappropriate you know like they kind of A. . Conservative not hyper conservative but a little bit of a conservative workplace and it feels like if I were to talk about my sexuality, , it just seems much. . It is not done. . There you the way it might be okay to talk about other orientations, , right? ? Because like marriage equality passed for many reasons. . But one of them is because we reframed it to be about love and relationships we moved away from sex but for asexuality we don't actually have that option did. . It take a while for you to become comfortable with that label for yourself absolutely, , and I think in many ways I still feel I still feel some ambivalence about it. . You know I like talking to other aces other people the crew community because I feel like I can be more honest. . You know there are people who still say sexuality doesn't exist you're just repressed or maybe there's something physically medically wrong with you and because there's so many naysayers of course. . There is this pressure to dig your heels in and be like not only my actual I love the sexual twenty, , four seven. . It's the best thing in the world because you don't want to give them any room to invalidate you right and so I think when I'm with people who are queer or who are as there's more, , there's great things about it, , and in some ways I've internalized some anti sentiment and sometimes I feel about it. . So it's a long process.

"Everyone and welcome back to the poker grid. I am here with a very special gas one. Bill Chen Ke is a two time world series of poker champion very well known for writing the math of poker with jared anchorman and he's also played high stakes coker for a very long period of time playing the W sap for a decade winning more than one point nine million in live tournament earnings and also bringing together like minded folks together in so-called Math House including pass grid guest herons Chan and also met her lingo. Who as we will discover is kind of a Guardian Angel of this particular officer in the past few years? Bill has been super busy with other projects? You might not have heard from him as much in the poker road which is one reason. I'm very excited to get this interview. He's been very busy at his job. At susquehanna international group which is an investment company right in my neck of the woods and he currently leads a new division in sports analytics. He's also an active go bridge and chess player. I actually I met bill because I was teaching him. Chasse and he quickly became an expert through those lessons. He was recently on one of two officials. Seek teams at the. Us amador team is a highly competitive event in which Sig won first place right now. He is here with me in the studio. Thank you so much for joining me. thank you and. I'm glad to be on show by the way the other team won the amateur. Tv's Yeah I tried to escape. I know because I clear it seriously. Bill so we. We've had a very interesting hand when I first tried to get bill on the grade. He spends a lot of his time in Dublin. Ireland these days so I had to grab him on one of his visits to Philadelphia. You couldn't really come up with a hand. So I mind the archives and I found one that I was just praying was a perfect combo for us. It was from the twenty ten three thousand dollar horse man and you were heads up with the one and only fill for your third and eighth breath it at the time. I'm actually going to read the description from poker. Knew how they say it. Now Your Theoretical Third. Like if you had one. You would've gotten a third right this if you were you. Were down the heads up against Phil I. This is the description on the hand poker news. It's a whole them hand in the command. So you're down to heads up. You raise the Biden and Phil. Ivey called from the big blind eye then led into you on a flop of ten of hearts spades hearts you called and the turn came the nine of clubs then on the turn. I bet and you put in a race. I called that race to see the seven of hearts that completes the the front door flash fall on the river. Id then check to you and put in a check raise after you bet so that point you decided to fall and useless down to what was one point. One million which was apparently a big deficit to view who had a big chip lead at that plane. And you did end up losing heads up match and ended up getting two hundred K. And certainly a nice little consolation payday. I do remember. Those three hours was also the same day. As the wedding of a couple of PERMI- my friends Bet Brady Alston listening he that I was actually supposed to kind of help out with but I was in Turkey. We so you this famous wedding by the way. This is like a year before I became friends with bill finally enough. I'm sure I would have probably been at the final table if I was friends with him at that point. But this is the famous wedding that you helped organize. That's a little bit of an exaggeration that they had Twelve if they are like You know closest relatives and friends and you know mothers and everything it was it was at the at the Venetian. I did spend a bit of time. Organizing it Before I played and I played thinking okay. This is a horse tournament. I really have to play it because this is one of the best tournaments for me. But I'll be able to attend all the wedding festivities unless I make like third gay understandable and you missed the wedding entirely right contra percent or did you. Were you able to join some kind of after party? No they did their vows During the dinner break from the Horse Tournament so I was able to go to the Venetian and I had a car waiting for me. They probably saw me rush out after the. I do that so sweet. Oh my God what a good friend you are. So are they still married? That work out. yes. I saw Brad just a few days ago. He still works for us at Sagan. He seems pretty happy. And they have one child and I think either the second one's on their way or they're planning so the hand I'm GonNa Recap it a little bit because the the poker news was a little bit wordy. Basically it's heads up you raise. The button fell caused. The flop is aced Handuz with ten in the juicy parts and Phil leads into you. You call nine off suit on the turn bill. That's again you raise than on the river after Phil 'cause there's a seven and then he put in a check raise a very interesting unusual align. I mean I was kind of excited when I saw this hand history because I can't imagine that this lying comes up very often right. I the lead then the raise on the current and then the check raise on the river. Yeah the lead was a is a little bit unusual when you raise. Especially if he knows he's against an aggressive player limit holdem and would be able to check raise. Most of the time also feel like probably knows he is advantage or feels his managed man four of the five games so he might not play as aggressively in limit holdem because he feels. He's an advantage in in the other game so the fifth one that he feels like you might be as good or better at would be the limit hall. Okay Gotcha so I of course this hand we were trying to think of one. I said well. Bill you have to tell me what you had in this hand and I'll see if it's still available now so tell me about that because obviously you're having ten years ago you got check raised by lie on the river and a heads up pot like it is strange at somebody. I mean your your. Iq is very high right. You're a certified genius correct me. My memory's pretty terrible you. I forget where I put my keys like all the time and I've had this problem since I was young. I've tried stuff like you know playing the silly card game. Where was the call? Oh Memory Right. Try to turn up. I got pretty good at that but it still didn't help me remember where my keys were so well. Fortunately you're you're mad. Harlan go who was obviously following the final table. I assume he probably had some kind of peace as you must have done. Some kind of action charing. So he's probably very invested by the way. I probably would remember the hand today after or the next year or even the year after that. But it's been a while and you has been a lot of different games but after I told you this hand history. You kind of guessed correctly. Actually as you had the Queen Jack off so basically on the flop you called because you have lots of equity and then you decided to raise on the turn. Can you kind of world? They'll take those decisions. Yeah well the flop call was kind of interesting usually when I raise on the button and the big blind defense I mean. It's very unusual for them to lead and I can tell you now if they lead. I usually just call. I pretend that I bet. And he called for the purposes of the hand and that's just kind of a mental simplification that I do. I think it's right for them to check to me most of the time because this is like a button raise. I'm not necessarily. I mean I'm doing it on on on a wide range of hands but on an ace high flop especially it's frequent that I'm going to you know. Take a shot at the pot here so I guess they are some hands. I might check but usually the player leads. I call the exceptions to that is when I have almost nothing I might just fold and you might occasionally raise or no you. Yeah I have to think about when to raise because if you really have a good hand here like say flop. Sad or something. Then I could just wait until the turn to raise and get like induce them to make a bigger bet there or whatever known for being part of the team that saw limit Holdem we worked. I mean certainly. Nowadays there's a limit holdem solution but I think solved is kind of You know pretty aggressive word. We knew how to play more closer to the optimal solution than others. I would say right so basically what you're trying to say is that it's not like it was mapped out. Exactly what the correct decision is in every situation. It was just that this solution played better than any anyone else. Even if I had accessed solution I didn't have access to my computer so I didn't have like complete memory of Several quadrille Ian Paths. That things could come down like with all these things you have to Have intuitive like you have to make shortcuts and have have an intuitive ideas. Because it's sort of like you can't remember all the trees of chess openings. Right if you play no paying a you have to remember the teams right. We definitely if you didn't remember this hand heads up agains. I beginning check raise in the river. I believe that you didn't remember the the tens of thousands of ranches and the limit. Holdem trae right right but It's certainly other people like the solution. Is there now so you can play like computers. That plays optimal solution. You can remember as many trees as you want and you'd be pretty good at it these if you're game at a point in a game where you get to spar endlessly against something that plays better than anyone else. Obviously that gives you a huge advantage right tests players have this ability now right for example. Right that's true. I wonder if it's a little different which I don't know not not. Too many of the players take advantage of this as much as they could. I mean I played a game where I played the computer. It is kind of bad to get beaten all the time but you can do something like Oh you know I get an extra night or something like just practice. That's really interesting. I think this is an important distinction because sometimes people do make that mistake because they know that computers are way better than humans in particularly Alpha zero or Leila phasing that they think that the game is solved especially. If they're not really a chess player that they're more like somebody with an intellectual interest in the chess culture and that is a misnomer right. It's more like a lexicon issue. Broher right it's solved like some of these poker games especially the heads up ones are solved in the sense that the computer can beat you lately chests right but are there any that are solved in that the correct move in every situation is determined. I mean the solution that Cmu had think was a computer solution that took like a thousand CPU years. Which means that if you ran it on your computer. Take a thousand years. But they have. Many computers have computers at CMU. My guess which? Which one are you talking? Big Carnegie Mellon Solution. They call them on. They've shown that it will lose some fraction of some really small fraction of a bet to you every hand you know I. I mean based. They've shown a path that if you WANNA throw more computing power at it You can get closer and closer to the optimal solution right. I mean it's not a simple solution. You can just diagram. That's a lot of the solution. Pro Probably entails mixed strategies with certain hands and things like that got it on but the reason I ask that is you have this Advance knowledge because you're working on this solution. That other people are not as advanced with but then Phil. Ivey goes ahead and leads into you so clearly. That's not part of what you're studying with your solution right. That's gotta be like a brand not investigated. Oh Yeah but you can put it in your branch because you can call and assume you bet and he called. That's the that's kind of like a pneumonic trick. I guess so. That's what you would. Yeah so you're you're just using that branch the branch okay. So bringing us to the nine. Yeah the nine came on the turn and it's obviously with Queen track. It helped my hand and I thought it was a pretty good hand to raise with in VAT. I have nothing here. Rate to either have a strong hand by the river. Still nothing is kind of a question. I have how nothing queen high is but I think the way. We both played the hand. Queen High doesn't have showdown value or one of the things. If I hit a queen or Jack obviously I just showdown at the end right so you raise on the on the turn right holding. Just take it because I don't know what fills a bet calling bet folding Ranges are but as I said he might like these are pretty big bets in terms of this tax is now he might just figure well. Omaha is going up. I know avid and John. Bill that game you know so. He might actually be more likely to fold than Saint Optimal Player here knowingly. More likely to fold yeah. Did you have any vision here? Like what hand solution or something or did you like when you decided to raise raise on like semi blow off some time and obviously a lot of the semi bluffs our hearts so I think Queen Jack Shoe serve an alternate semi blocked where you can kind of Bluff Win. Some hearts come right now. I don't I did not get information from for Matt about the suits in his hand. Would that have mattered? We know now that solves today. Like the difference of having like the Queen of Hearts in the Jack of hearts like sometimes it's incredibly different right like they. They really mix very strongly according to the exact suits of each card and sometimes in very mysterious reasons. Yes so yeah. I don't know whether I had to queen or Jack of hearts you know did not say. I had one of those snow. No he didn't mention it but maybe that would have made a small difference like it would have been better but now the most interesting street of the seven of hearts falling on the river..
