"And then the stone nut with this taste and it really describing the brand, how it looks how it feels and sometimes to me what's just unnecessary, but yeah, then again, I think maybe was planned like that. Not a lot of dislikes, seems like a good read. What would you recommend this book for? Everyone can read it, and I think it's especially moving or touching for people with Asian words that have experienced the cultural things that are part of their world. And there's a lot of correlation between the things happening in real life, so if you're open for also young adult fiction, just pick it up. It's a really good read. It reached fluidly.

"Welcome to reader's table, the podcast where two story lovers talk about books, movies, and stories of any kind. In today's episode, we are going to discuss York by Mary HK Choi. If you want to support us, use our Patreon link in the description and follow us on Instagram at readers table. Today, we are going to talk about a book called yoke, as I've already said in the intro, I know very little about this book. All I know is it's not fantasy. Since our first season so far is a bit fantasy heavy, which is no problem, of course. I'm excited to dive into something a bit more rooted in the real world, and I would like to give over to her to you, give us a quick summary about what the book is about and take it over from here. So yes, I'm very excited to talk about this book, I'm an avid fantasy reader, and I thought I want to switch it up again, and this book was all over social media and I just knew it was about Asians. And as I myself have Asian roots, I thought this would be the perfect pick. So the author is Mary HK Choi and she is a Korean American author. Television and print journalist. She already has written to other books and she also, which is super cool, help writing the Marvel Comics. So yeah, that's about the author. The book title is yolk. And it was published this year or so in 2021. And it is labeled as a young adult fiction. So on the backside of the book, the author wrote. Jane Beck is barely getting by. She shuffles through fashion school, saddled with a death beat boyfriend, cloud chasing Friends, and a wretched eating disorder that she's not fully ready to confront. But that's New York City right, at least she isn't in Texas anymore and is finally living in a city that feels right for her. On the other hand, her sister, June, is dazzlingly rich with a high flying finance job and the massive apartment. Like Jane, June has never struggled a day in her life. Until she is diagnosed with uterine cancer..

"Are they the person that actually understand. What the hell talking about and do they cause at the end of the day. These are all just words to like give you perspective but at the end of the day you have to do it like i have to do it. I have to decide for me. What i wanna have in life. Be that family this type of career. This type of piece this type of lifestyle. I'm the one that calls those shots and nobody else is going to know or understand or support that the same way i would see where all those things merge exactly in the more date in. This is something i've even learned more I mean recently knees the more data you get. Because i'm a i like getting data. I like getting advice from people. I love talking to different people in collecting as much as i can make a better decision. Prefer a lot of things in life. What i realized in this is me being a ceo of a company with employs right In having a lot of different advisors in people like that is that you know you've done inside you know the answer in. You're the only one who can actually make it happen. Everything else like. I said again can distract you from what you actually want in. That wastes a lot of time because we can't get time back right. We're just getting older and anytime there's there's anything that is said to you that keeps you from taking action. You have to get yourself to take action constantly like you know. The worst thing for me is when i get into these slumps. Where whether it be yourself. Or you're hearing e get a piece of feedback or a comment or whatever it is that doesn't make you feel good. Usually ends up happening with people as they stop operating. They stop executing the kid this like crawl his whole and then they're just like okay. I'm not motivated today yet. Right it's very common. And so what i learned is is. How do you quickly get out of that hole. Is you gotta get out of that hole as fast as possible in give back to being taking action and sometimes too much data into any people giving advice can also keep you in that whole in. Keep you unproductive right. So the only way to produce results in your life is by taking action and no one nothing. Nothing great happens from someone just sitting in front of their computer and playing videogames old. I mean the listener twist schumer but up saying yes. Yeah you gotta take action basically. It's like a skill to get out of that as fast as possible. I think that like even the taking action thing. Because i think the the context in which you and i are talking right now which is still in the middle of kobe rate Taking action always for me in terms of how to maintain my drive or like my performance. Or whatever like my productivity in a long in a long term perspective a lot of my actions for me personally has been being brutally protective of my time and energy which means my action has been saying node more things so like are sucking comes out and like when people come knocking wanting xyz from me like it hurts. David because like your saint louis. It's none easy. It's hard for me to lead people down quote unquote or feel like i'm letting people down or because that's what i was so accustomed to. That's the value. That was my identity. That was my daily uploads. If you will like. That's how. I got the dopamine that i'm doing something you know and that a lot of that identity for me came from helping other people a lot of that even like i'll be really like i have to. Yeah yeah like a lot of collapse stuff like i was so community driven. I don't regret it. But i learned a lot from it like there's so many times i was depleted and that i gave all of myself to and i'm not trying to pay myself a martyr. This is something. I chose to do that. I felt driven. But i was so into the community and i it was a lot of ego in there too like getting these like the position of being executive director and feeling like i had the power authority to move the needle or something like i got a lot of satisfaction out of that but it also took a lot out of me and it was the expense of that was not being able to create the stuff. I wanted to create. Write the scripts. I wanted to now. I have no excuse now. Just me procrastinating. Also but like at the time like i literally had no time because every night there was an event there always some things that i got some sponsorship. I gotta get on behalf of the community. And that's what i've been like recuperating from a little bit in the aftermath because you know i like technically stepped down three years ago but i've still been still so a part of the asian american community that like i was like what could have happened in. All those years theoretically. I don't know because we don't know we can't go back in time but like to me. I had to really sit with that of like. Why do i feel so depleted and when still people come after me like exactly what you said. They don't want you to change. They're used to having you be this person and be predictable and reliable and everything they needed more to do xyz. And you're like no. I'm trying to leave that behind. That's that's. I'm no longer in that space. I'm now doing this thing. You're like i'm a ceo of a company if you wanna work with me. They're like let's talk like that heart is not an. That'll create a different dynamic with people for all those reasons. Like i was just being really aware this last year. Especially like how much of a toll that took How much i benefited to is not again. Nothing's black or white. I got so much out of it. But do i want to keep repeating that. You know that's on the. What do i gotta do internally including the saying no you know respectfully declining if you will be like. I don't know time or energy for that. I'm so sorry but good luck poker on you like honestly I will say that. I would like hundred percent choose. I know that you had stepped out of the limelight quote in that way of being like a viral and influence and singer songwriter. And the david that we always knew. But i really. I knew that you're working on this thing. And i greatly admired you for that. I have admired you for that even though we haven't talked that much in the last few years because there's less interactions because of were not in that same sphere that we used to. But that like. I want you to know that that stuck out to me is like bro. He left and he's doing something that he's invested in. That's so sick like it's amazing so good on you. I appreciate that it's like. I said i'm still on that journey. Dot some things i learn slower than others something to pick up faster but you know it. It's everything that i've experienced from the past in in where i am now is Everything i've experienced from the passes actually applied to to what what i'm going through now in You know. I'm i'm honestly i'm just like student we all. Can we click. Like i talk so much about like career because i do think in our culture in america being asian-american there's so much.

"I'll even more than that to to really transition. I guess it's it doesn't it. Never felt like going from point. Eight point be. It feels more. Like i'm still trying to get to be. That makes sense is really just that journey in in the things that i'm learning Along the way. It's fine. Because i'm kind of in a maybe where you were. I know that you're still. You're on the squiggly line towards point. Be an eye too. I am too. I'm curious like were there different. Because there's been a lot of talk at least amongst my friends and people that i am inspired by a lot about Setting intentions in like being very clear about for me. It's setting intentions has always been ingrained in me. I guess but for me it's actually setting more concrete goals that have become more applicable in my life. Because i haven't been as i guess. Concrete or finite about the things that i wanna do is kind of like in a grey zone of like. I want to do this and i want to do this. And now it's like we'll by win and like how will you know that you got there. What are your key performance indicators right that's so it's so So much pressure. Yeah but at. Least i'll pull a line for sean cheap. Because have you watched it. Have you watched on tv. i haven't yet. I haven't johnny spoilers but basically it's about like like having an idea of where you wanna go. You're more likely to go there than if you don't know right absolutely agree so even though there's pressure and yeah i think i'm like just the product of my dad. I feel like no pressure. no diamonds. Man you gotta have some pressure right like. I know that we're so under stress right. Now that it's like a lot in were pride too much pressure in life right now at the moment but in general i'm like i just don't i wanna be a supportive later if i become a mom but i also feel like i've still to push the hell out of my kids. What's so what is it that you're thinking howard move forward not to free-floating but that's the way i look at it your impression on diamonds. Yeah absolutely. i think it's important to have goals for sure. Like i have a list of things. That i've i've written even probably eight years ago that i adore right things that i want to accomplish in. You won't Accomplish all of them. But i think even the act of writing things down on paper. Yeah talking it away and storing it. It's pretty interesting that A lot of this stuff on my list a actually happened I just really interesting. But i mean they're just like general things. I wanna get on marrying amazing woman. I tied i did I want more dogs. I have to have more in the future. Nice little things like that. Like like the things that you can attain in the future like Those are all things that that i think people should write down and gives you kind of like a company like a an northstar for life in general big picture and then you should write your goals of what you want to accomplish in terms of career as well. Right absolute auto. Those are all important things. You know spiritually physically career life of all those things. I think we need something to to to take her right. Yeah absolutely okay. i'm gonna come back. I wanna know the amazing woman thing. I i would love to hear the whole story. I heard Cliffs now sea. Give me bullet points a while back when i got to meet her and she's wonderful she beautiful When you're at the career point and you're saying like i'm sick of the content creation this this youtube rat race. If you will or like the artists i mean not many people know it to right like more people might know it now because like you said so many more platforms where people to monetize and like to make it their thing but again you're in like a very experimental is right but just it wasn't being done before you're part of the og group that was like watching it. Become the thing that it is now right that other people kind of flow into so at the point that you were like really Hitting bernau was there like. When did you make the decision to say. Like i wanna go into tech and was what was that transition like. I'm curious did you like set a time and be like a case. No more youtube. Like i'm not writing more music. 'cause you're still i featured. You're single in my last episode by the way so you're still making music. What was that. What were your intentions at that point. Where like you started to really switch out of like. I'm david choi seeing her songwriter. Yeah what was like. Will this switch. It did bring a few things here. So one of the things that i noticed was people didn't want me to change. Are they want to be the musician they wanted me to be the sierra the jar and when i would ask for help were advised her from certain people You know i kinda tell it's like oh you're in my space now interesting okay. So that was really interesting. Sort of thing that i experienced for me. I was like music's always going to be a part of who i am. It's it's my dna but with those transitions.

"Willingness and like the timing of your life in the the the life took having adopted youtube early on right being like an early creator there. And i know that that's like i want to get to obviously where you are now like all the crazy things. But we can rewind a little bit and do a little reflection like what is impossible to say like in an hour for you to some everything you've learned from being uninfluenced or have watched that word exist right in the creation of your career like can you for those who are just getting on track with david choi. What was it when you first started like when you were your intentions. Do you remember that at all leg. Yeah i do. I do remember my intentions and it was really just for growth like i- i was before youtube. I was always into getting feedback about my music i would send it to friends. And say hey. I didn't write this song. I'm just recording it for someone what you. What are your thoughts on it. Because i wanted unbiased opinions on my music. So i wanted to get better. I wanted to be really good at what i what i did so you was a great way for me to do that. It was also very new space at the time. It was very foreign for anyone to show their face on camera and upload it and that was a very weird thing that i saw people to on youtube and Eventually i kind of you know founded in myself in Just to it didn't feel like i had to be brave. It just felt like more like let's experiment. Let's see what happens because it doesn't seem like real people mine here it's almost like digits. Robots that are typing comments but is more of a social experiment at know along with trying to get feedback in a bunch of things. I didn't have any aspirations that You know that i would. You know maybe someday become a full time musician from doing this or it wasn't any of that. Yeah it was literally the timing and it turned into something a breed spectacular for me. It was really the timing in preparation. I can't really say it. Was you know strategic or anything like that. It just kind of happened. I love that. I still think that. Like i'm in all of that. If i may just like i full disclosure i. I am very bad with feedback or i very much. Fear asking for feedback have historically. Yeah most. I'll say that that's a characteristic of yours again to to be open about what you think what you feel about your work like to say. Hey here it is. what do you think. And i don't know people who are like chomping at the bit like yo. Let me know what you think. Most people are like. Okay i work my butt off on this please like it if you don't talk to me like that's how i felt like i will. I made a music video in two thousand fifteen and i literally ran and went under the covers as if that was going to protect me but Posted on youtube. And i had a heart attack by the way And then just jumped on the. Because i was so am i. I still grapple with that to this day. Like making something. How did you always grow up that way where you always like. Hey it made the is what do you think like did you do. You never really struggle with getting negative feedback. I man that's a really interesting question of i think i there's one part of beside me. That didn't care what people thought That's because nobody cared. I was very shy. I didn't have like that many friends as like nobody that i don't think really people care. So let's just get this feedback in you know. See if see what they really think. And i was able to kind of be objective about things and as a songwriter. One of the things you have to do is be okay with detaching yourself work even if it is personal and that's a really hard skill set to build i had to build that in myself And if you peel the warriors right what does it come down. What is it boiled down to. In my opinion. I think it down to level of getting really deep but Who you are as a person first and foremost if you have to find comfort in that they the you are a you are not the work that you created. You are a different person. You have you know i am. I am kind person i am. You know i'm a person who works hard. Those are things that people can't take away from you that you can't really attach that to a song in so you find out all the things as to why you are special y y you are unique. It's just really about ivan. Say like acceptance of yourself first and foremost once you've accepted in grounded yourself in who you are at least in that that moment in time then any work you put out becomes just like a loose extension of who you are but it's not who you are. It's just an Extension that could be cut off basic. It's a thing that you made analysis externalize plate of yourself. Yeah and so whatever people however people critique it like i said yeah we're humans we're gonna feel it of course when someone doesn't like something i create. I don't like it might if you keep exercising that muscle than your skin gets thicker and thicker. And then you're able to say. Oh you know what that's true. What they said is probably. What would these ten people said the same thing. It's probably true. Oh you know what. Next time. I do this. I'm not gonna make that mistake again. Interest makes you better and better and better and that just makes intern your life better. It makes your work better. It makes you know impacts more people like you can keep attaching meaning to why it's important for you to experience this growth and in with growth. There's pain involved as well. It's like working out right. You gotta chair. You'll soar in order to get bigger toned muscles. it's the same concept with.

Choi david i actually got to know and got to meet through the collaboration universe when i was executive director and actually when i was a volunteer for the san francisco chapter back in my twenties. My young days I'd been a fan of david for years before i ever met him and to see him. I remember the specific moment that i saw him in. Real life in person was at my very first. Collaboration show which i had driven down from the bay to l. a. in two thousand thirteen slept in a car overnight in a parking lot very sexy and gone to my first show in the shrine auditorium. Five thousand people. My head was exploding from just like this asian-american representation in pride in real life outside of youtube and the internet It was an incredible moment and after after party. I really like. I'm talking to somebody and i out of the right peripheral i lied. I see david choi walking with his around. Kina grant another youtube and musical legend. That i look up to. And she's awesome where the nicest people wanted to swedish people on earth Yeah there's just casually walking by me arm-in-arm because they're a really good pals and my brain just broke and it exploded.

People that eventually got to meet and befriend and get to know On a more personal level has been. It's been incredible for me. It's been amazing. And david has changed so much in his life path. Becoming you know this amazing tech ceo and this new journey as a husband and a father now outside of you know what i originally met him house which was a youtube sensation and an influence. Her mind you an early one. That turned didn't even exist when he started. He was one of the first right. So it's been crazy. And i'm just so grateful to have him on the show to share a lot of his lessons learned because those are very hard lessons learned coming from true blood sweat and tears Ups and downs triumphs and failures So it's great to have david on the show before we introduce him and the conversation.

Creating Partnerships That Matter With TED's Lisa Choi Owens
"Well. Lisa welcomed a girl boss. Radio thank you happy to be here. Well so today you are the chief revenue officer the cro and head of global partnerships at ted. But you know like a lot of us. We've had a lot of different jobs before we got there and actually your first job. Straight out of college was on wall street. Which is so different What was that like. I mean this is going to age me but working on wall street way back then pretty much fit every nightmare story. Every bad stereotype that you can imagine. I actually was working on the trading floor which was just so challenging on so many levels like if you were to think about me to everyone in that organization would have been fired. It was just kind of extreme case that things that you've seen in the movies effectively where women were wildly disrespected It was an incredibly male dominant very aggressive environment and one that i just be just wasn't ready for it. Toughened me up. It turned my mouth into like a terrible potty mouth as a result because that was actually the only way that i could kind of have any credibility with folks there. I'd have to like throwing bomb in order for someone to actually hear my voice so it certainly toughened me up. I mean on many levels. It was so difficult that like every job. That followed was easy but it was pretty crazy introduction into the work world. What is an example. Because i mean. I can imagine from the movies that you're coming into this wild room where it's mostly men so i mean i have so many stories from like being invited to strip clubs and people using the squawk boxes to place bets on how much we a woman who has had put on during her maternity. Leave to just being cursed at on the floor

So susan on one level a simple level stories. Kind of a case. Study of kleptomaniac. What is it that makes it more than that. I think the thing that makes it more than that is the idea of narration itself and storytelling this sense that sasha desperately wants to you know as she puts it right this new ending in collaboration with 'cause and there's something in that that i find so moving every time i read the story that has to do with faith this faith that sasha has in cause and even finds it very funny way to kind of underscore it when sasha tells us that she actually doesn't know 'cause even really is a shrink that he might just be a fraud but she's she's chosen to believe in him and that's very moving to me because i feel that the story is about sasha struggling so mightily to continue believing in something to believe in him to believe in the possibility of change for herself and to believe in the possibility of taking control of her story badly as she wants to get to that happy ending. She can't and i find that very. You know very heartbreaking. And i guess applicable to you know life in general not just this kind of wonderfully particular situation life as an attractive thirty something. secret kleptomaniac. I'm interested by what you're saying because my sense reading the story is that you know yes. She's collaborating with 'cause on a story. That's a redemptive story. That's building to a happy ending. But in order to make the actual life fit with that storyline. She has to hide things and not go to places that are important so is she actually collaborating or is she just trying to help him shape a narrative that's not true i think it's much more the latter which is very sad. You know you asked me earlier. What did i think made my students respond so powerfully to this story. And i think the absence at least within the limits of the story of a happy ending and the very real possibility indicated within the story that that happy ending doesn't exist outside the bounds of what we're reading either I think that acknowledgement feels really powerful to the young people. I teach who are facing all the things that they're facing. I mean we're all facing them. But i can't imagine what it would be like to be confronting the world that we're all confronting now at that age on the brink of adulthood and independence with so many reasons to be just deeply pessimistic. So i do think that. There's something very painfully real about. What i view as her inability to actually open up herself and be honest. There's this enormous conspicuous omission. That's indicated in the story 'cause keeps trying to lead her to talk about her father and sasha's steadily and resolutely steers him away and why would she so resolutely steer him away from that particular topic. If that wasn't possibly the topic rain she says in that direction only sorrow well. You know you're in therapy honey. Like that's the direction you're supposed to go but she's we know she's not going to. Yeah it's interesting. When i step back from the story and look at what we actually know about. Sasha it's very little you know we know. She used to have aspirations to work in the music industry or to learn japanese and play the harp. We know she's lost her job because she talks about her former boss. We don't know why we know we. She lost her father when she was six. We don't know why We know she lost her best friend. We don't really know why we get these very fleeting glances at our past and nothing really in depth. We just got this present moment. This this one date that's described. Why do you think jennifer egan is so sort of stint with those details. I think that the story wants to immerse us in. sasha in. the story is in an obvious way. It's it's told from sasha's perspective it's not a first person story but it's close third or the subjective third person in which you know we read she and sasha and yet we're only giving access to to sasha's thoughts sashes feelings we never dip into causes perspective seeing her. We never see her through. Alex's is and so you know ican has did you this incredibly difficult thing where she has to immerse us the reader in the subjectivity of this character are protagonist and be true to all of the ways in which this character is being dishonest with herself yet. Indicates us those dishonest easter taking place right We have to know that things are being left out. We have to know that sasha is lying not just to the world but to herself so hard to do But she does it so brilliantly. Here i think through this very systematic inventory of all the things. We don't know deborah when you were kind of listing all the things that we don't know about sasha that's evidence of how well built the story is me is that You know you have to know something to know to what degree you're ignorant of it right. And and so. Eagerness is managing to indicate us in all of these different ways all of these fast realms in which sasha is going to shut the door in our face even the reference to her freelancing when she and alex go back to the apartment. There's that desk where she used to write. Her music reviews less now than it used to be a what happened there again. We don't know they're all these artifacts of this loss life. And in a way i think the brilliance of the conceit of sasha's klepto mania is that these objects help a lot in that storytelling the objects are the artifacts of that loss civilization. The bath salts which are able to show us something that we're never going to truly see. We're never going to see that. Friendship at the bath salts give that indication of once upon a time. This woman had a friend who meant an enormous mounter and that person's gone every object. Does that kind of work. Yeah.

Sasha wished that she could turn peer into the mirror again as if something about herself might at last revealed some lost thing but she didn't turn she held still and let the women look. The story was chosen by susan. Choi who's the author of five novels including my education and trust exercise. Which won the national book award for fiction in two thousand nineteen. hi susan. hi so What made you choose this story by jennifer egan to re today. You know a couple of things. One is just that i love the story. And it's so rewards. Rereading i've not just been rereading the straight at teaching it for years now and my students always really connect with it but the other thing is that i i had a feeling it would be really fun to read aloud and it was. The story is about a troubled young woman who steals from other people and is trying to cope with that situation through therapy. Would you think it is in the story that your students connect to they. All is admire the brilliant structure the way in which jennifer egan really enables us to inhabit sasha through especially her description of the objects that tech tilleke and the deliciousness of these objects so my students really admire the writing on the artistry so much but i think also the story speaks to them because it feels really contemporary to them. Because i think this experience of somebody who's broken in this way of it isn't immediately visible but that's really really deep. You know for better and for worse a lot of them really understand that the story was originally written as a standing story and eventually it became the opening chapter of egan's novel. Visit from the goon squad. Did you read it first in the magazine or in the book i read it i in the magazine and then read it in the book and thought it was so remarkable that it was able to function brilliantly. Both by itself and as as the opening of that novel. It's that's not always true. I mean i've. I've loved a lot of stories that then ended up being incorporated into books and thought. Oh i kind of wish the story had remained on its own and in the case of this one it. It is brilliant in both contexts When i teach it usually my students haven't encountered it in the novel and They don't need the novel but it's like an extra bonus to them. Usually a lot of them go on to read it and in the book you learn a little more about sasha's earlier life and about her later life do you think that affects how you now read the story. Oddly it doesn't. I continue to interact with this story on. Its own terms. I don't have that extra knowledge kind of coming in. It's a really interesting thing to me that the story by itself feels utterly complete in that the story in the book also feels like an indispensable piece of something larger And that there's no sort of sense of it being compromised in any way depending on where you're reading it what does some. What has jennifer against writing in general meant for you as a writer. Do you think she's an influence on you. Oh my god. I think she's even more of an influence than consciously realize. It's funny. I love the story. And as i say i've reread the story a couple times a year Since i started teaching it. And when i was reading it just now a number of things popped out at me that i realized i feel like i had pretty much and i'm not sure if this is the place to say it straight up stolen them for my own story flashlight which you published last year. So yeah. I think it's fair to say that her work is enormously influential online and in ways that i'm conscious and unconscious of Let's absolutely positive. Sign for the story that it became absorbed into your psyche. Yeah it became absorbed in the way that you know the stories that i just find indispensable. I can't imagine them not existing and there aren't loads and loads of stories. Like that for me that once i read them they become a touchstone and this is one of them. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's susan choi. Reading found objects by jennifer egan found objects. It began the usual way in the bathroom of the lasmo mo- hotel. Sasha was adjusting. Her yellow eye shadow in the mirror when she noticed a bag on the floor beside the sink. That must have belonged to the woman who's peeing. She could faintly hear through the fought like door of toilet stall inside. The rim of the bad barely visible was a wallet made a pale green leather. It was easy for sasha's recognize looking back but the peeing women's blind trust had provoked her. I live in a city where people will steal the hair off your head if you give them half a chance but you leave your stuff lying in plain sight and expect expected to be waiting for you when you come back. It made her want to teach the woman a lesson but that wish only camouflaged the deeper. Feeling the sasha always had that fat tender wallet offering itself to her hand it seems so dull so life as usual just to leave it there rather than seize the moment accept the challenge. Take the leap fly the coop. Throw caution to the wind live dangerously. I get it. 'cause her therapist said and take the fucking thing you mean steal it. He was trying to get sasha to use that word which was harder to avoid in the case of a wallet then with a lot of the things she lifted over the past year when her condition s 'cause referred to it had begun to accelerate five sets of keys. Fourteen pairs of sunglasses. A child striped scarf. Binoculars achieved greater a pocket knife. Twenty eight bars of soap eighty-five pens ranging from cheap ballpoints. She'd used a signed debit card. Slips to the aubergine visconti. That cost two hundred sixty dollars online which she lifted from her former bosses lawyer during contracts meeting. Sasha never took anything from stores they're cold inert goods didn't tempt her only from people. Okay she said steal it. Sasha 'cause had dubbed that feeling she got the personal challenge as in taking. The wallet was away for sasha to assert her toughness her individuality. What they needed to do was switch things around in her head so that the challenge became not taking the wallet but leaving it that would be the cure. Although caused never used words like cure he wore funky sweaters and let her call him 'cause but he was old school inscrutable to the point where sasha couldn't tell if he was gay or straight if he'd written famous books or if as she sometimes suspected he was one of those escaped cons impersonate surgeons and wind up leaving their operating tools inside people skulls. Of course these questions could have been resolved on google and less than a minute but they were useful questions. According to cause and so far sasha had resisted..

Struggle, Surrender, and Salvation
"Choi you refer to this as not a performance but as a service. So let's start there. Because when i think about a revival i keep talking about the time that we're living in right now as an opportunity to reimagine this country this world that often times when we're at a space where things are breaking open that it is an opportunity for us to create new space and so talk to us about what the revival means and why that title yes. So i'm from the south. A grouping louisville kentucky and i grew up going to these kind of revival sevices sometimes actually intense In the middle of my neighborhood. And when i was looking for something that met this moment i was trying to remember about like times or spaces that i've been in that helping move from you. Know point eight to point b. point a. Being like if i was in a place of like deep pain something that moved me to joy or place of like not being able to see the way forward that moved me to you. Know seeing a clear path and church has always been that for me And also like the christian context that grew up in does not necessarily feed my spirit. In the same way. So i am to Dissect like what is a revival service how what is the. What is the technology. That's being used in. That service. That gets from point a to point b and i found that like all that it really is. Are these songs that are helping us like hold space for our own. Jeremy and so when i titled it the revival. It's about Coming back to ourselves. It's about finding a path to listen and salvation being about collectivisation

Growing Up In Style: "Patterns of the Past" by Susan Choi
"I'm here to introduce a series of original essays titled growing up in style writers on discovering fashion in america in this one the novelist susan choi author of the national book award winning novel trust. Exercises writes about her love of fabric patterns as a child in south bend indiana here susan reading her essay patterns of the past. I hope you enjoy. Historians of fashion seem to agree that by the time i was born in nineteen sixty nine. The son was already setting on the golden age of sewing. But there were few signs of this decline where i was growing up in south. Bend indiana my mother like so many mothers owned a sewing machine and knew how to use it how this come to be. I asked her recently. She gave a verbal shots over the phone from houston where she lives. Now if you read the directions and follow the pattern it would come out all right. She recalled she didn't even remember perhaps because they were as ordinary to her as grocery shopping. Our trips to the fabric store. Oh the fabric store. Even now decades later when google those words and look at the photos my heart thumps with desire to be clear. These are not photos. A fabric for sale online but photos of the interiors of actual physical places where one goes to touch bolts of fabric cards of rick rack buttons buttoned to a stiff cardboard backing or tumbling loose in a jar dispenser displays of threat arranged by color the spools curved surfaces gleaming like candy and every kind of beautiful ribbon in every color and texture and pattern the fabric store. Unlike the grocery store made me hungry the for. What exactly wasn't clear at the time. It was something much larger and much less defined than the outfits. My mother would make me from the items. We chose the fabrics and notions and trim but the outfits i loved with my whole heart and remember as clearly as if they still hung in my closet. The ruffled pinafore made from a white on white print of tiny flowers trimmed with red rick rack and finished with the application juicy. Strawberries on the bib. The shirtdress of multicolored cotton printed with patterns resemble embroidery the truly glamorous halter dress with a triple tiered skirt of pastel. Blue pastel pink. Pastel yellow says my mother now in her eighties on the other end of the phone. I lovingly describe her creations. She is impressed. I remember so while she has zero memory of sowing the any of these things though she does remember making herself address with extremely big sleeves. They were in style that year. She says she wore it a few times and decided the sleeves looked so stupid that she tore them off and wore. The dress sleeveless the fact that unlike me my mother is white exceedingly pale small boned blue eyed and with the cheekbones of film star both oppressed me throughout my childhood. And lay somehow outside of thought even to articulate it now feels uncomfortable but the facts were and remain that my pale blue eyed mother never matched my black haired brown eyed dark skinned self always far darker as a child than i ever get now because i was outside all summer. In an era before sunscreen in elementary school in indiana. I was cast as the lone indian in the thanksgiving play more. Generally i was constantly looked at especially or at least so it seemed to me when standing next to my mother. We didn't match. I harbored a fantasy fearful half escapist that i would turn out who've been adopted from some faraway land. Even my father who really was from a faraway land only explained my appearance without removing. My anomalous miss. He was to novelists himself ends that hunger. I felt at the fabric store. Larger than any one outfit could satisfy for the choosing of the fabric and the notions and the trim was always secondary to the choice of the pattern and the choice of the pattern was never i understand. Now about the pattern it south. It was about the girls the winsome the willowy and the overwhelmingly with token exceptions white girls who modeled the pinafores and shirt dresses and halters the tiered skirts and even the full body. Pajama like halloween costumes. On the outside of the rectangle envelopes housing the patterns. Remember those remember how they were often filed in boxes so that your fingers walked through them as they would later walk through. Lp's at the record store. When i think of patterns my mind says butterick. And i bet that the majority of the close my mother made me were from patterns put out not by simplicity or mccall's but by the butterick company which also produced vogue patterns having licensed the name from conde nast bruising those patterns of my past online where especially at sea they abound as if the golden age of sewing never ended. I have to wonder if i always chose butterick patterns on the strength of the package illustrations alone. The simplicity girls are oddly wooden and slightly mis proportioned the mccalls girls look like cartoons but the butterick girls still quicken my heart. I recognize my secret childhood. Self that lanky limb d- flush cheeked auburn-haired spirited white girl. I was deluded enough to imagine. I might be twin sister to anne of green gables. No less than two miniature area clock recognizing that hopeless longing to be entirely unlike myself delicately white as affirmed by one hundred percent of my world is a part of moving past it and perhaps even a part of reclaiming those buttons and bows those bullets at every possible fabric delicious all on their own after concluding online photos that it might well be the store of my childhood. I called stitch in time in south bend but it had only opened in nineteen ninety. Three there was a fabric store back then an ireland road by the old scottsdale mall. The woman who answered stitch in times phone told me. When i explained where i lived fashion fabrics that turned out had opened in nineteen seventy one just in time for my first toddler outfits and closed just under two decades later having withstood. Even the machine made onslaught of gloria vanderbilt. I know about that story. Because i worked there. The stitch in time woman went on. But before i could exclaim that maybe she'd helped me choose buttons or ribbons. She politely ended the call. An actual customer having arrived looking. I imagine for the modest but real transformation that a pattern and some fabric can provide.
What a cactus taught me about prickly emotions
"So i'm a sports and performance psychologist which means i get to work with a lot of people like athletes military professionals in top government agencies. His career in safety depend on peak performance. And all never forget this one story. A soldier told me about his time serving in iraq. It was around early. Two thousands when the united states had military operations in both iraq and afghanistan. Enduring this time. Many locals were encouraged to come forward and share information about potential threats. So one day. This iraqi man approaches the game of the us outpost to share intelligence about a possible threat but instead of being treated like an ally he was met with hostility by the soldier. Who's debriefing him. But that's likely because just days earlier soldiers from another unit were killed in a surprise attack and so as the interview continued so did the soldiers irritation and as a result. The iraqi became frustrated in the end. Tempers were flaring so high that the interview was cut short in the following day. Two separate units were hit by roadside bombs. we'll never know for sure. The attacks could have been stopped. Heavy interview gone differently. But the reason why. I'm telling you this story is because it's an excellent example of a super common problem that keeps so many of us from performing at our best. It's how wilbur regulate emotions which is one of the most common drivers of a good and bad performance and it turns out how well you're able to regulate your emotions depends on how susceptible you are to a principle called emotional contagion. It's just like it sounds. It's how quickly you can catch the emotions of other people and then take them on your own. The problem is though most of us are highly susceptible to other people's emotions which means even the smallest factor can impact how we perform at work on the field and even at home but lucky for us. We can learn how to avoid other people's emotions by becoming better at regulating our own. So here's how i like to think about this. I remember seeing a giant teddy bear looking trump for the very first time hiking in arizona in because it looks soft i reached out to touch it but by the time my hand was close. Enough the spines on the branches jumped in print me literally. My hand was covered in every time. I tried to remove one little sucker would break off in a burrow deeper into my skin in this plant. It has the perfect name. It's called the jumping choya and it left a lasting impression figuratively literally so much so that when i teach people how to regulate their emotions and avoid cashing the emotions of other people i refer to the jumping choi effect and over the years. I have concluded that the jumping toya's are just like people they can be pricks in. If you're not careful they can deepen to your skin so to understand how this happens in real life. I think it's helpful to know what emotions actually are. And there's two popular theories about where emotions come from. The first theory is called cognitive appraisal which basically says that the experience of emotion is actually you evaluating if your current situation aligns with your goals are expectations. So let's say you're on your way home to share some exciting news with your significant other. You walk through the door you find them sitting on the couch but instead of a hello or how was your day. They leave the room without saying a word now. That's not how you expected your to go. Which could lead to the emotion of feeling annoyed. Does that make sense. The other series called physiological perception. Which is all about the emotions be subconsciously. Assigned to the physical changes in our body. Public speaking is a great way to understand this. How perfect right. Usually right. Before i speak. I get butterflies in my stomach now. If i had seen physical feeling. The last time. I spoke in public in a speech went well. I may interpret that situation or that sensation as the emotion of excitement. But let's just say. I bombed my last speech. I may now interpret that butterfly feeling as nervousness or fear basically we overlay our physiological perception from our past experiences onto our current situation. And what's interesting. Is that both of these. Theories also play into how we assess the emotions of other people because the part of the brain processes emotion and memory. The limbic system is considered to be an open loop system. It influenced by any external factor. Think about it. Have you ever passed by someone and without saying a word you can feel how annoyed how excited they are and then maybe you felt annoyed or excited to. It's an interesting concept to think about because our brains are hard-wired to pick up. These settled jews in our environment. Which makes it possible for the other person's emotions to jump in attached to you but what many people don't realize is that every human being is affected by our open loop system. Many people at work or many people on the same team inevitably catch feelings for one another sharing everything from jealousy to envy and worry to joy.

I was kind of overqualified in so a lot of people were hiring. So let's say. I was a six figure salary right. Yeah people are looking to hire forty five thousand dollar you know Second or third people in charge and promote them up you know and so a lot of the jobs that i was applying for the salary wasn't there so then i had to then i had to go and look for other jobs and I just wasn't getting hired. Yeah i think a part of it was i was just. I was done that part of my life was done. Yeah i do realize that time. But i was scared and then my friend gave me a call almost at the the very last end of it after by the three months spiral My friend gave me a call. And i used to work with him at the beverly hilton. And he's like. I heard you lost your job bro. Like just i got this idea. Let's put korean. Barbecue taco going from clubs. Kill what else you gotta do. And i didn't have anything else to do. I i i. I look back if i had gotten even one of those jobs. Yeah cokie wouldn't happen. Wow you know. We had liquidated all of our. We didn't have much savings but we had liquidate all of our savings. I remember i had about four to five thousand dollars left. You know total in. Wow in everything say links everything everything and no job on the horizon. So and then you know. Just one month bills would have depleted. All of that happened. You know i would have been in a very desperate position. Was that call at that exact moment the fact that for three months. No one was hiring me and We went out and soul tacos on the streets. Hollywood and at this point i mean we. Now think of food truck in part because of you as as Something cool something where you can get quality food. There are sort of areas of town where you can go visit a lot of food. Trucks at once You can go to events where we've even talked about our like doing an event where you don't bring any cater to bring in a bunch of food trucks. At that point. It was not the case yet. We have to always remember that. The bedrock of lunch truck community in the taco truck community was there but it was very much like the immigrant community that i told you about in the beginning of this podcast. Yeah it lived. Maybe below the radar of popular american culture. Yeah but it is a part of a bedrock of a big part of american culture. That wasn't being talked about a lot and so that was all there. What we did was we. We honored the soul of that and paired it with technology and a bunch of young young folks and just kind of created a new version of it. You know but with the old soul. I think that's again. What may kogi so strong. Yeah we weren't coming from left field and having no no link or lineage to the lunch chuck community when we started coke before we start we trained in the lunch trucks. That were feeding the city. Yeah and the luck trucks. I feed the city just a quick quick five second history. Lesson is all of the skyscrapers and buildings and homes and construction that you see all of the folks that built.

"We spoke with Franny Choi about a series of poems titled Handle Abbasid Aryan Hunger this sort of notoriously easy to learn because because it was invented by a group of Linguists Hongo. The Korean alphabet was invented in the fourteenth forties to replace the use of traditional Chinese characters. I learned it before learned English. And I'm a writer who grew up in an immigrant family for most of my life. I've taken a lot of pride in mastering English and that mastery kind of comes at the expense of mastery over my heritage language. This poem MS trying to put both of those in the same room and see what happens. The poem is written as an apposite. Derian a form that dates back to ancient Semitic medic texts the ABC. Darren pretty simple form. Where the first letter of every line corresponds to a letter in the alphabet so the first line starts with a the second line starts with be etcetera CETERA? And so this is a palm that takes the form of the ABC Darian and adapts it to work with the Korean alphabet which has fourteen consonants. The voice says she wanted to prioritize clarity inherent in Hungary to sign Asian cultures are seen as sort of like inscrutable and and mysterious. I think by the West and I remember in high school. There was a period of time when a group of boys got very into making this joke of calling hauling Asian languages like geometry. You know because it was just like shapes like weird shapes that don't look like they mean anything it was funny to Think about my languages being so foreign and alien and impossible to learn when it was designed so that anybody could learn in it in like one day. I don't know it just made me think a lot about how much effort is put into trying to understand another human. Here's for any joy reading HENGEL ABBASID ARYAN Genghis Khan. My father says using soft g never saw our peninsula with his own eyes. Don't quote me on that. Recall isn't my strong suit. I've convinced myself. Memorizing dates for for example is outmoded better to learn the overall movements social conventions rising and falling empires and. They're changing mascots. John Jesus sired so many. They say his children's Children's Children's genes sewed an entire continent of grasslands. If you press your ear to my blood's topography you'll hear hooves pounding though. I can't remember when it started or Whose King it is coming in the distance? There's so much in this poem concerning language and Empire spoken versus Written Language Memory and not remembering even down down to the kind of skeleton or ghost like vestige of the sonnet form in in this particular poem which is fourteen lines like Kasan it as the sonnet turns and and does some sort of interesting switching and pivoting he can see particular moments moments in. This poem is well when the momentum turns even as this poem is very much. Its own meditation meditation. Yeah you know the structure of this poem as an Abbasid Derian to and thinking about the poems emphasis on recall and memorization and remembering and not being able to remember and that seems to interact really interestingly with the Abbasid Aaron here because it's it's a form that's almost kind of like pneumonic device you can use the alphabet knowing that each line starts with a particular sound or continent to help remember. Remember the poem and so this poem is both in its form and content struggling with. How do I remember my heritage and also how how do I bring it into a new form? How do I combine my different experiences and different histories into something? That's memorable that question of what's memorable memorable is really the foundation of the poem and actually so much else that comes along with it because if you think about it it's it's almost impossible to remember when you come by language or a language especially when you're young you know you may be multi-lingual multi-lingual I was when I was young and I don't like most people I just don't remember a thing about it so like on the one hand you can remember being in school and learning to write the letters of the alphabet. I think that's probably inexperienced that people have in many cultures if not most of them. But that's like a different from process in it strikes me thinking about this poem that the Difference Between Mastering Alphabet in terms of writing something and having a memory Marie of language and Memory Language that accommodates memory is much more mysterious and where they join up in a place like upon is a sort of fusion of these odd facts of how we grow into our languages and cultures. It is a process process where you know memories are inherently part of it. But you can't remember them. I can't remember when it started. Or whose king is coming in the distance to me. Those lines are beautiful way to evoke that process of inheriting something without knowing the details or even the right vocabulary and spelling palling for certain kinds of things because those things change as as individual people do who pass things along impasse things on it sort of it's an unbroken chain but it's not a chain of consistency Those ending lions really speak to the inexorability ability of empire. You know the notion of not being able to remember when it started those horse. HOVE's or WHO's king it is is coming in the distance. The idea that this is a cycle of empire that is continued repeated. What really stood Out To me as being also interesting in the ending was who's king. It is was very fascinating to me as opposed to saying something something like which king is. It's whose king it is just with that possessive Pronoun there. It really makes you think about the people the populace who are being ruled by this particular king. So there's this moment men of a sense of people and crowds and lives that you get just condensed into that. One possessive Pronoun that the speaker. The I also feels a part of because she or the speaker has experienced asked this in many different ways with language with the memories and the non memories and even learning about history from the father. Who is referenced in the first line of the politics of that a really sort of deepen interesting they? There used to be a say in the sixties and seventies at least theories of linguistics and anthropology that proposed the idea that language was invented entity way to enslave people. You know that the language literally comes within is a function of power in his used to spread that power which is one way of connecting. People is not always a good way but I like how this this poem kind of. Does that because even the way you pronounce in the name you know of an important authoritative figure in history you know with the soft. G is very witty because like there there was no softness about that character but like how you say. His name is something that Westerners at least trip over constantly. You know like even you know the way. Are you pronounce a name. The name of a well known figure in history sort of distracts you from the survival of that name despite. Oh you know all of the passage of time and the changes the occurring cultures and then moving from that just the way you say that name to something about seeing seeing your own peninsula with your own eyes. I mean I mean our lineage. Our traditions our memories are not always literal. And that's what this poem reminds us of so deftly deftly. I mean you can belong to a place without necessarily having seen with your own eyes because you your eyes and everything else you have descended from that lineage lineage from the narratives that come with it and you can rule a place to without ever having seen it and that would be the flip upside of. What's happening too? Yeah I mean it's interesting just the kind of almost genetic memory that's being considered here in sort of both both sides of that. Yeah I like fat emphasis there in the middle of the poem about you. Know his children's Children's it's children jeans soden entire continent of grasslands. This poem really interacts with distance in so many beautiful ways and I think that's one way of sort of articulating the genetic and time based distance that Genghis Khan had from three of the land that he ruled the fact that even his children's Children's children populate an entire area that maybe he saw only briefly or never at all like she was saying about the Pencil. Here in the blood which is remarkable Erkaban. Because when you think about the power of those horses in the conquest that those who F- beats made possible through ranging over wide distances offenses and and sort of spreading things around. You know in a funny way like those historical facts vanish. But there. There is a survival of the legacy of this kind of conquest. That is much more sort of subtle and alive than history itself. The sledge's like pounding away in your blood long after the sounds of the actual of beats of dissipated.
