She's really are go to writing. She's the off he minded. I think he just came up with a new tagline. I well this is kind of how it all started because we on Co op and we ended up kind of monopolizing the conversation with books and then we're like wait the minute wait. Let's get back like we started talking about. Harry Potter episode throws only Gosh which which is the book technically yes technically which I haven't got to read. All the way through Jesse has though so you guys had really great book. It has been so long since I read through the books though she make that no now. I'm not even going to suggest like we try to do read all of them. No absolutely no uh-huh pretend like I read all ninety man like I don't even think we could do that with like Harry Potter Yeah No. I think that'd be too much. We've come to him line. ooh. Let's break the mob. You love it then. We'll do like seven episode Harry Potter. They're like Harry. Potter podcast wins the a Harry Potter like month on Spec- for something else now we'll ginny. That's a December and okay and I in March. I think yes I wanna say we could coordinate with that but I think there's any month goes yeah. How about this <hes>. How about we ask you a couple of questions so we came up with a few questions. We're not just I'm not just like the best interviewer in the world where I'm just coming up with questions off the top of my head. Eh By what book would you like to see turned into a movie. ooh I would really love to see motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan. Lethem turned into a movie at such the characters in it are so rich and vivid the I think to see them. Come alive on screen would be so interesting and I will. I'll say this when we were thinking about what we're going to answer these questions. I was like I better look this up Assif. It's not a movie already. It's about to be a movie November. I which which were kind of during something so reading a book at the end of August in haven't been to our website. Go look it. Is the movie it or the book it by. I Stephen King Yeah. We're reading it so that when the movie comes out we making this compare Yada Yada. You should do that with obviously obviously you should. It's such an interest. I've never read it. Oh it's so interesting it's about this man that has threats and he's living in Brooklyn and he's motherless us how Brooklyn of him right knee like falls in with this gang of like other kind of like kids and people that don't have mothers or like a family and kind of along the way he becomes a detective of sorts. I'm studying has threats not obviously kind of gets in the way of being you know a little bit sly and sneaky. We are not as good at being those things. Leave how terrorists unfortunately. I don't think that it keeps you for big. Slice Niki detect them no <music> but it definitely it through some challenges your way okay. It's a good book a hundred percent. We're going to read it. How about this. WHO's your favorite author author. Ooh So Shirley Jackson as one of my favorite authors but since we're already highlighting her yes today you'll to hear it. I was like touching Jesse's fault because she's on Jesse side of these deaths Jesse's my co-host in Copa Buck as he was kind enough to lend me aside. I complaint yeah. No He's like we have to get genia little fiction for her to decorate and stuff like that so does that mean to put car stuff on my side with Richard Richard and Jesse ultimately start whatever park their car podcast Ab- cake but go on Shirley Jackson not yeah yeah for this one. I'll go ahead as eighty Smith. Zanies Smith is by far one of my favorite authors. I would absolutely love if I could meet her. In person. Listen Someday Hayes Eighty Smith Yeah. If you're listening today. Please come to the Pacific northwest. She teaches at Columbia though creative the Friday. Oh that's really cool. I didn't know she taught there yeah. She lives in Eklund for a long time and then I think she came over here specifically for that job. I could be wrong. Please don't hate me Internet. That's wrong they want. They can't hate you. Gosh she's super cool. I would love to meet her and she's such a fashion icon to. I know she's so fashionable. We're I'm. GonNa talk about fashion. In this podcast we have to it coincides it. Does it really does how about your favorite poet. ooh. Definitely Wallace Stevens Sunday <music> warning guests Sunday morning the one poem that I've read over and over and over and over. It's almost like my like security. Blanket poems guests like anytime during in my life where I'm like. I just need to like focus and become oh when it though okay pat so Sunday morning is super long. It's it's broken into a couple of different sections and it spans many pages reading it. Out loud takes about seven to eight minutes in total. It's not an option yeah. Actually when I was in college I ran our literary publication and we used to do open mic readings all the time. And for our very last one I was like okay guys. I'm a senior. This is my absolute last one. You all have to listen to me. Read Sunday more. Excuse me while I take the entirety of your evening but yeah. Why don't you tell me what about yourself? Okay Oh yes okay so again. My name is raven like you said a minute call. I'm in a podcast about nerdy things. I love really the everything I'm very interested in like fantasy and also really like historical fiction which is kind of just off. I don't know why I think it's like my dad is a history teacher so I've always been a little bit more interested in history but those kind of the books I like but I mean I end up talking about just literally anything create them all the time because I'm very much into like tabletop talk R._p._G.'s so I play a lot of attention and dragons which is a lot of like creative thought process. There's a lot of like back story that goes into creating your own story story and then recently have been doing a lot more <hes> the dungeon mastering the heads it create my own world so I love reading these books like one of my most recent characters. I based off of kind of off of constance from we've always lived in the castle yeah. No it's really really good and the next book that we talk about. I kind of based one of my characters on a D.. Stream that endearing office so I mean I get a lot of my inspiration from literature and just kind of everything but yet this yeah we'll dungeons and dragons. This is almost like historical fiction. You have this whole like world that's already built out with all of these things that have happened and all these rules and how things already behave right exactly and it is Kinda cool though because a lot of resettling people have been bringing out of that like in modern literature help people have been trying to break out like the stereotypical stereotypical ideas of race and what it means to be a woman and what it means spe- <hes> the sex that you are when what that means to the story story a lot of people have been doing that in dungeons and dragons us well and like all these other tabletop gaming so that's so interesting to be a part of so full of it so good ed I love it will tell us what book would you like to be seen made into movie okay. I'll start my first one off with a fantasy. <hes> book series actually just read the first one and working on the second one right now is the dragon land series. We should base off dungeons and dragons. Oh Nice. It's really good right. It's it's like it's what we need. I think they might actually try to create it into something with like the witcher being turned into a series I think like they're doing the wheel of time series which is Jesse's favorite fantasy like series like the market might be oversaturated in fantasy but the books are just so good because the world is built out but it's not not like with game of thrones where you have to know literally everything about everything so it makes it really easy to follow in the characters is really great because one of the main characters like a natural born leader by he is a half Elf so he's having to deal with how elves cannot stand band not pure lines and so they don't listen to him but everybody is trying to like they're like we trust him. We believe in him. One Hundred Percents Very Era Gore Oren like kind of like a lot of dungeons and dragons Lord of the rings basically but it's so good and just how strong a lot of the female characters actors in it are and that's always exciting for someone a woman who's in who enjoys reading and enjoys fantasy if there isn't a strong wrong female character in it. I'm probably not going to read it at this. Point is twenty nine thousand nine people like it's easy program. Yeah get with it so probably the dragon land series it yeah. Did you have a second. One second fire thought we were leading up to now yeah. No no no I was like I just want to start with fancy but now I want to think. Do I have a second one at love to see more <hes> just like horror novels in general unroll 'cause I mean the haunting Appel houses so good and I think that they should just continue with that trend of turning just turning more hard Dr novels into into film and turning those into film because they're all really good and they're all like a lot of the Lauren story just comes a Alah from Lake People's own personal demons Sia. I was just about to say I think the appeal for me is the psychological aspect because I don't really appreciate shape or movies where it's just all blood and chopping people up the entirety thousands and horror really really bad for all of us. I'm just really squeamish. That's what it is. I'm like blink those like substance at that point because it's just okay. I don't like when my arm comes. I hate that so you're you're right. You got me there. There's a ton of moments of game of thrones sorry I had to like cover my eyes early for the room and I'm like Oh. Let's such a windows me no yeah yeah. No I totally understood a psychological demons taunting people totally without a lot of love it so yeah just more horror in general awesome well what about authors you have a favorite author I do in probably this has been one of my favorite authors for a really long time and they don't know oh how okay it is that he's one of the authors but I've always really loved Ernest Hemingway. They'll always really connected. Yeah I love Hemingway and he's such a good example of I think that era of writing to Lilly s generation was all about like no nonsense like proce. It's just everything very black and white absolutely unburied disillusion exactly and I feel like a lot of people a lot of people that I know that the authors of that time are really into Scott Fitzgerald who I hated with every fiber maybe we'll we love it was also very good in different hemingway exactly and I just like I just appreciated a lot more of Ernest Hemingway's writing a farewell to arms since one of my favorite stories growing up so honey weighs probably one of my favorite authors. I'm trying to think of like aside aside from that mcleans in the moment and I'm like living them and I like him in that way. That's what ends up happening yeah well. There's so many good choices that it's hard to say. This is is my ultimate choice about everything else so yes depend on mood or what point of your life. You're in exactly he'll weather. Yeah exactly like chocolate cake that day. You know maybe I'm not yeah exactly. Maybe I'm not Edgar Allan Poe fan that day yeah exactly my name is Raven so I have to yeah yeah. A little bit yeah. Next one is oh no. What was the favorite Koa thank you. I should know that one poetry was like McLean. Everything is not my thing. I know that I'm the one that was like yes add that question. UH-HUH I did it because I was like poetry and I am getting more into poetry. Yeah not as much as you though but you're also a poet where I am not as much as I will say to that for probably the first twenty two years of my life. I hated poetry. I thought it was like pompous and over the top and like really flowery and I was like no none of that. I just want straight PROWSE. I don't want anything to do with poetry and then I took a class in college that was is a visiting writer series so riders would come to the University to talk and our class would read their books beforehand and then we get like private interviews with them very cool okay so the very first person who came to visit them at class was Kim and Ezio who is a very famous poet from San Francisco and her poetry. It's just like I think so on brand for me and resonated so well that I was like Shit. I've been ignoring poetry. All this tie poetry compete this yeah exactly 'cause she used to just you know reading in Highschool like Robert Frost and you know all the classic. Shakespeare and spenser and Milton and I'm like like not for me. I don't know Nicholas Resonates yeah no and all that too is very much like do I have to continue. I mean I feel like when you're forced to read needs. Something in school is basically GonNa. Be Why you like yeah. You always think it's not what you like. A fair arms from being really resonated. I think it might have been one of the books I read during American literature so pretty sure everything else was sparked notes and off. He's going to go back now and read all your grades and replaced on so much. I did really well. On tests. I think thanks so full matters. I think so yeah okay so my favorite part yes so when and so this is very very specific because I'm not really into Po jail that much so I have to out from what I've read of. There's I don't know very many poets but I have to sewing really lovely lady so I really love when I met Jesse. I was really into e e cummings. Oh yeah yeah so I wrote from that reminds me of that time in my life and so I have a soft spot for e Cummings and you've got an aunt of my I think one of the few people from the nineteen twenties always okay yeah no not that I can find on the Internet so at least I'll be so interest. It reminds me so much of that time that I was always really interested in his work <hes> so e cummings as when the other one which tirer remembered kind of as you're talking is Christina Rosetti oh. I don't think Oh you know her. Meet seven ice says and I I am always saying that because she did this poem called the Goblin market and it's basically clearly this beautiful. I think it's like beautiful version of storytelling where it's very long but I basically talks about how at this very beautiful girl is trying to. It's it's basically about escaping kind of the life that you're in and she's just trying you to experience new things while her sister is like it's very much almost like that. No I guess it's not really okay anyways so sh- her sister's like no you have to be be safe like you need to go to the Goblin market and she just continues to go to the Goblin market and she likes sacrifices herself a little bit more more every time because it's very good. I really enjoyed the Goblin market and really enjoy it like the rest of her work so that's basically it. Basically poems also tell a story because because obviously I'm a huge Edgar Allan Poe fan and so on that's all his works. Obviously obviously I mean. I can't not enjoy a grill in federal vastly Ashley. Yes exactly I'd be disowned so yeah. That's me that's me guys love yes. I was good all right well. Let's start talking about are all right so that's it. That's that's our preview out was yeah. I love it right. Hey we're so cute.

Yeah we have a lot of really do interests and different hobbies me so like comics movies filmed T._v.. nerds Stephan General and then also like football and sports house like the rest of America Women's soccer soccer I do I played soccer worked at Ravens a lot more for length of time of America only care about at once every four years or something yeah. There's like a saying every four years I was like Harper and when I grew up in Atlanta China and we had a women's soccer league you go all the time to those games is the Atlanta be and then they got rid of them and they had the fucking like silverbacks. Dan Leno fucking saw silverbacks around a yeah so a couple of those games now never showed up at the parking lot because we went through my family. We have gone to some baseball games. We'd gone to some football games or you're like. We gotta get their early because the parking lots going to be crowded. There's nobody there uh-huh soccer was. I feel like a little bit more hyped because I don't know I guess just Atlanta like girls. Soccer is so like girls do it all the time south whatever either way we enjoy everything together so we want to share that with the world and we also want to share message about how you don't have to be a Superfan to enjoy stuff or super casual literally no k-k-keeping no gear keeping at all whatsoever <music> all inclusive.

If you listen to our last episode episode twenty five was acumen a episode and and our patrons got priority on questions so amazing question join community and we love to have you join listen Easter anyway so we usually begin our podcast with some announcements Tony we have huge announced huge so I am pleased here announced that we're coming out with a brand new podcast. It's going to be starring myself and the lovely a wonderful Jimmy Cubal who is in our game of thrones episode upset fourteen and podcast is called Book and Bitch now book and Bitch. What is this what is it is a a book club podcast a bimonthly but club podcast that Ginny and I will put out where every two months now every two weeks basically will announce the books early but you can and listen to any episode that you want but if you WanNa follow in your more than welcome to and basically will talk about the book we're combining all juicy bits of the book with like kind of kind of like that forward message heavy we actually it's not we're GONNA try to keep it less boiler heavy just so if you WANNA be so we'll like remove like massive like plot point? S. Kills Dumbledore double door those kind of things now but no I think like if you're discussing books right like context <hes> writing theory things like that author backstories which are going to be so exciting especially especially in our first episode because in the first episode we're reading we have always lived in the castle which is a book by Shirley Jackson which she did the very popular Netflix series with based on her book the Haunting Uphill House Awesome so she is usually people know her kind of as a horror honors is not the book taking to the hunting season two now. I think I for some stupid reason I was like no. It's the taming of the shrew. I can't remember what it is. That's not the timing of the shirt that's stupid thing for me to say Shakespeare's Shakespeare and it's about something else but so okay so this book are they gonNA turn it into a series of so this is something already a film that came out but it's really good and I I definitely recommend everybody picking it up like from your library and giving it a read it super short and berry engaging and I think reflective of really our society in general got enroll in how a community is together and Howard community works together so definitely or rather does work together but go pick it up join us as we bitch on our podcast so let me say definitely GonNa follow along reading the Books Highs Jesse's lucky has he has the list so far that he's headed released on our website book. I got a double check while another can follow you on twitter yes Graham and stuff right book and Bitch pod Yes at the combined pod on twitter and instagram and then you can go to W._W._w.. Dot Book in Bitch Dot Com where we do on the calendar section at the bottom of the page. Have the books plan for the coming so in August like you said we're doing so our tentative release date is August I but who knows thinks come up so just keep that in mind our first one is we have always lived in the castle by Shirley Jackson and then our second buckets where the crawdads saying by Delia Owens are. I think it's <unk> Delia Owens now. I'm like second guessing myself but that book is so amazing on Reese Witherspoon <hes> Kinda list so it's so good and then the third book that were reading this month is Stephen King's it for the release of the phone yeah and that's one. I'm getting a jump start on that has it is a billion William pages long guided. We only have one cuffy of the vix yeah exactly so it's like we gotta get on it raw fast so it is along books. If you WANNA be there for us so Jimmy's never seen it ever like the original version with tim courier nothing and she she's never read. The book never had the buck. Her parents didn't like it when she they didn't want her to be scared. They protected her. They loved her a lot while my parents let my brother show me it when I was six so but they still at me. They love me a lot. So that's why we're reading is for the upcoming films that will probably also watch the movie the original movie and then the first movie so that we can also compare it through different medias so that'll be really interesting too so and as everybody knows who falls our podcast we're about free plugs for advertisers <hes> but on book and Bitch. I suggest that you hold off also never give you go get your books from libraries but yeah you say that on your part here we can say audible is a great place at these books. Whatever ever on your kindle on audible they are very reasonably priced with crawdads seeing and of course we're pretty hefty but are worth spending a credit on yeah?

That'd be the second time a couple weeks. My sister came like last week. So you know getting their double dose of Seattle Time I am looking at all the things we had a great time with my sister and her boyfriend Alex Super Cool people right up the ferris wheel and kind of that night scenic view explore all the downtown area fun things to do battle they were saying so. I think this is a great way to describe Seattle. It's very they're touristy things but it doesn't feel touristy like even when you go to like Pike Place Pike place those are only fucking tourists. I mean there are people they're buying groceries and stuff which is really cool. There's like select Pete area allying coming out of the original starbucks so well you know that there there but it isn't overwhelming like even for Fernley Ferris wheel and yen in terms of cities Seattle's pretty small. I mean it's hilly <hes> so walkability is glad blocked from like like where Pike places to an area called capital in it is hilly. It was very it's a hill but yeah great fun. I think when my parents are here Uber Definitely Uber for here parents yeah well Uber and we'll hit some of the slightly different spots. I don't think they're cap hill people but will oh yeah but we're going to take and a lot of people don't know what the Fremont troll is but we're going to take them to go see that. We'll get a kick out of it because we're going to go get better because here's the thing is was done in the nineties Yeah Alex where like sp five right. My parents have been paying attention to artsy fartsy things where I don't think it's I don't know trolls. Your sister and Alex would've known about it is because it's hip as kind of trendy it has it is very much on a lot of like marketing brand right saying yes hip in trendy in the nineties trinity. It's Heaven Trendy in Seattle still now yeah those trendy publicly worldwide in the nineties so my parents for sure know what it is. I don't think they do that. They were hitting trendy. People go up in the space needle did not know you actually on a Saturday. You have to have a time selected or else. You're going like four tickets. I say our they're looking at the next. It's like okay well. That's a big elevator and then you can see everybody. Everybody wants to go up in it. We should have figured but we didn't plan ahead well enough there but we still got a local Pacific Science Theater or center. I was Pacific Science Theater like mystery science theater where we went into the butterfly room. This is with <hes> Emma and Alex but the butterflies chose Jesse to see is a fake king. He is our faking the princess that's true. You are tall like we. We're all like way shorter than USA so we have a lot of stuff playing. We're going to the Hooley museum with your parents Yup. We're GONNA do that. We're GONNA get coffee from the original starbucks yeah. They'll be a lot more interested in actually waiting in line to do stuff like that. where I I think like like that's cool? Take me someplace cooler did because we found that little hidden garden. Oh we did and that was so much fine. Oh my gosh. I didn't even know what existed I loved it rose. Those are my announce. I guess <hes> so my announcement is last Thursday. This past Thursday was my last episode on fainting steps on Scotus Academy. They have warmer episode so please go watch and support them and see where the story goes. If you have no idea what this as or would like to go back and watch former episodes you can go to their youtube after going to ours and listen to our <hes> episodes on YouTube <hes> but go to YouTube dot dot com slash gratis <hes> and they should have them video on demand so I'm not on it anymore. However I will be on their second season or their next season of streams coming coming up in August different completely different <unk> yeah but yeah Deanne parties yeah so yeah? We're still playing defy but I won't give anything else away. It's going to be really exciting but I'll come up with <hes> a full announcement at a later date probably in August but I wanted to keep you updated because a lot of people are like why is this your last episode episode because my in laws are coming into town next week but I loved it so much that I'm going to be in Senate next season two and scratchy guesses amazing and I love what they do over there so yeah so stay tuned for more information on that is the last time you see my dumb ass beyon- twit stream plan de Yeah Yeah Yeah Okay. Let's speaking of tabletop gaming. I thought we could start our hotcakes with some more information like that because lately been playing a lot of tabletop gaming will well yeah so I think it's pretty well known that we have a Tuesday group that we play on right like <hes> you know we enjoy playing with our friends and we're hoping to eventually stream that whole thing huge idea thank you for that but we mix it up. We did one shot led by Raven a one-shot quote unquote when Your Party doesn't do stupid shit drag it out for like six weeks so like I said their basic d._v._d.. Players ears that goal about and they follow all these basic tropes and things we were just watching the latest season of strange things. You're not gonNa like gave away and he likes boilers and everything but I'm watching them like they're not thinking this out. They are Basic Bitch Rich D._V._D.. Players because they're showing I'll say children yes but I think there's one shot designed for two. I'm like no no no no no. We're in a dungeon right now. There is a fifty fifty chance that this person we ran into a batty or prisoner. I don't like those odds. Let's let's just kill. I think that's a great idea. trope called a murder Hobo. I mean and who's going to tell where Madonna it's not like. The cops are around the corner saying torture room so it was Paul really bad idea story style. I'm very much drawn to like creep tastic horror lake very spooky creepy stuff and then beautiful like fantasy super high fantasy like like folklore ish in kind of nature storytelling is either. It's either those two. There is no in between there. I'd maybe don't ever it may not ever have a dragon in any of my one shuts or a troll. All I would have a troll but maybe not like a giant giant yeah so we're switching from me deeming that one shot though to <hes> our good friend Corey Gay who we all know in love. He's going to damn the next one and the next one super cool because it is the star wars tabletop R._P._G.. which hi actually don't have any of that information geck's what like what's a call edge vampires at one part yeah I think so brilliant which I can't remember which Royston destiny I think they're all different modules of this particular the killer thing let me see it's the empires the core so we're playing on the age of rebellion so this particular Star Wars <hes> tabletop game is produced by fantasy flight games of Seattle and it's a edge of the empire <unk> rebellion like you said and force and destiny and so these are lethal three core rulebook so and they are basically all these different all these different kind of modules and like different stories that you can tell really right and they're really cool? They're very I mean. It's obviously it's not like you're just Kinda in the world is joining the rebellion or your four Caesar and things like that so this past Tuesday we started the character creation process Janda. It was long so most of my experiences been D._N._D.. Character creation and I believe Jesse's has to. I don't think we played really any other no yeah it's definitely it's D._N._d.. Stuff all together but you know I think this game so far is it. It's not dissimilar from the character creation. It's only slightly different. Yes as we're walking through it. It's like okay pick out. I can't even remember the things you have to pick out but like you have your motivation. Pick out your Excellency and then you like what is that in an after you read the description of okay easy going on here. I get how this is going. Impact my character you know yeah you gotta look at all the different skills and say okay what are they actually do what attribute to they use similar to like how you wouldn't be indeed but all of us mostly no yeah the skills by now and stuff like that right so some of us I mean gene and this is probably how new players approach D._V._D.. When they start to play row case you should listen to our former D._N._d.? One podcast episodes yeah we need to do another one of those actually move on but that we're going to do a a brand new dandy session tomorrow with some people have never played before. We're helping with some inspiration which we're gonNA actually talk about after he talked about this. What like we're going to do in that what you and I are characters are going to be so? Let's talk about the characters that we created for the Star Wars campaign because I think for this were mostly going to just do the intro module and then if we wanna play it again later 'cause like we're kind of rotating or damn straight answer or GM's right now and. And because of that we're just GONNA start with the Starter Montreal and then maybe eventually we can do another one of these but <hes> do you WanNa talk about your character yeah so I always play a human anybody in this game. It doesn't matter the game my theory Holtz whether it holds true for the actual statistics but it does seem too much time they make them very even and it gives you a lot of like if you like it's a it's a good start <hes> in go either pathway which we're like most characters church or multiple at the beginning. I feel like if you go with a particular race or species or whatever we're talking about in the game that we're playing you know you kinda build yourself towards a certain path and if the actual game you're playing doesn't of all towards that path you might get like pigeonholed and then screwed out on like older later levels so that's the practical reason for humans. The actual reason is I can't remember where I read it right but it was like somebody knows in the the <hes> forgotten realms books and they're like yeah just remember after my head but they're like humans have like a greater potential because like elves other long-lived species as such a long time you know they burn for a long time if they're a candle and he just like session in tents burning quick flame the they have greater potential so I was like that so I picked and that's what I do but in this one the I had a couple of options there's the basic human which was like plus two stats across the board things like that <hes> there's a career alien human which I did ultimately choose which gave me slightly better gave me a free skill in piloting and other than that was basically the same name the regular human so that's why I was like okay. It's better right 'cause they. Get something for free or you could have been a mandal orient human which was really cool to it was but the difference with that one was they bumped down your X._p.. Starting X._p.. Speed which used by skills and stuff like that so they bumped down you're starting X._p.. By five they bumped up one of your stats so it's like a regular human but you had less X._p.. And just one stat was better and I think once that was actually worse to which now knowing the cost of some for X._p.. It was net positive towards May delorean's but you know again. You're starting to get to that point where it's like okay if I'm playing like you know particular type character which in this case probably going to be like fighters and stuff right where I get a little bit more flexibility with my basic human or my career alien human yeah besides I got a free level of space piloting yeah. I think my thing if that too is you had an idea that you wanted to four your character. I think the man delorean didn't fit that and you could yeah you could have just gone with the regular human but yeah and like I'm thinking off. The top of my head now demand Laurien yet is the best one like you know because if you price out how how much is a level in a skill worth X._p.. Wise <hes> and I came here but one of the go to three and that would cost what fifteen or is it a skill yet winning now so it's like five per level for skills or is it ten per level for the skills I ten for level actually so it would cost thirty so but one costs five to cost ten three condo that was that's the that's skills I meant it wasn't a level of skill level in an attribute that the mandatory and gave you which is ten per level so level on cost ten level to cost twenty so go going up from zero not would cost you thirty just as that level three which all of the two going up from two to three it would cost thirty so it's thirty talking about though yeah but it's thirty X._p.. For Free and all you pay five X._p.. Exactly and it like so it was a better deal. I did a couple of things like that with my character to or it's like okay I got to for the price of wine if I just by this attribute instead with the career and whatnot but we'll get to but yeah that's what it did and then I went with a my my character is going to be much like a fin from the new star wars movies so I'm GonNa have been part of the empire. Turncoat <hes> came to the rebel apple side and one of my options in my background and things like that in my duty no is to be like always on the guard looking for people who are going to betray a cause internal security so the background. I have that kind of fits right. I'm motivated by the just 'cause the rebel lions you know I saw firsthand atrocities of the empire and I'm basically just a salt lake in background and stuff like that just the soldier right I do have the survivalists skills which is like the camera exactly what is called but like basically I would have been on the edge of empire in the outer realms of the galaxy doing so for the empire and I saw some sort of a trustee out there. I don't know then turncoat things will develop as we go so there we go well so Jesse's characters background is specifically a correlation my background because I'm going to play <hes> to Gruza like Shoka a Soka Donna Donna Donna like her her. She's going to be four sensitive. I'm basically she lived her. She her tribe of a two hour going to be kind of separated from the rest of kind of their species. He's and they're very very peaceful very like monk like in a way like very kind of spiritual with the force a lot of them were forced sensitive and so my character is also for sensitive and so a lot of them were or four sensitive <hes> and so that's kind of how the tribe of their village was kinda formed very peaceful people still very active probably in kind of like the government and the Senate it but so they're not like just kind of out their fringe people but one day the empire after order sixty six sixty nine nine sixty six yeah that would have been a long time before this yeah. She's older like how how much longer we need to look into that. Whatever as if it's like immediately after that and now it's not it's order sixty six happen and then they went through and they tried to find others that could because we were so peaceful that could turn like try to reestablish the jet I order because it was like Obi Wan went from being you know like twenties yeah his late fifties sixties yeah it would have been she would have been a child like when it out but then also we are taking place between the destruction of the first star right and the second yeah okay? I'm still my timeline. I think is still right. Yeah it doesn't have any immediately up there exactly suits and so after that <hes> basically the empire comes down in destroys all of my home trying into <hes> rid the world of those force users which also makes 'cause we were on the technically the light side which makes the dark side kind of balance out and be more powerful Yada Yada that whole thing <hes> but my character lived. My character was saved by a dashing tame coat. I don't think she's going to be into she's going to be like really weird and kind of like almost like a mute almost but not really she's. She's going to be if you've seen the hit film aliens which we all know is one of my favorites. She's going to be kinda similar to newt like that. Weird can scared like little so like this happened. When you were a child? I would've had at least like twenty. Something happened now. So am I papa now yeah. I'm thinking timeline wise like my character could be like his forties. That'd be Kinda cool so let's say like I'm like forty eight and you'd be like twenty eight our age. I would have been like maybe like eight. I don't know we'll work. These kinks out later but the cool about two or this character which I don't have a name for yet is because she's four sensitive <unk> x. p. on getting kind of forced power silly force move and force <hes> like you can kind of kind of convince people to do stuff you know like manipulation reputation and things like that so pursuasion yeah which I'm <hes>. I'm still trying to work on how exactly I want to do that. In my character she she's mostly kind of focused on sabotaging whatever plans or whatever helpful things the <hes> empires trying to utilize so that's Kinda like her deal but she's also she is all all about peace and she thinks that without violence there would be no peace so Yada Yada she her. I think her main goal is that she wants to Jeddah order to come back. She believes in that goodness in the world in that light and so the EFI's chief is very important and it will say our third party members droid also a turncoat of sorts yes his character. This is Ethan and the time tail his character is a droid and basically was a droid an empire droid and that was stolen by some criminals like a high criminal society race Scholem and so that's you know somebody in that organised maybe world or whatever yeah and so they stole him so the Empire's looking for him because of that and then because of that I think he he either escaped or are got taken somewhere else and he ended up he ends up finding himself in their rebellion and so both of these groups of people are looking for him because he has information as a droid salary not super super clear on what his function was but he's not a battle droid function was like something mundane think he did like tech repair. Something like it wasn't medicine. I know that it was a medicine. I do know that it was like engineering hiring based in stuff like that so he probably has a lot of really so like the story to is going to go. We are like a crew in the rebel. Lions and you know so like you could see like we're kind of like this like the outcast outcast like nobody's GonNa turn coke. Even though I'm trying to constantly make sure other people are like turning coat from the rebels and going to the empire. I'm trying to be on their side. Nobody's going to trust the I realized my character is river. Song from firefly character is she's rivers and nobody wants to hang out with river song. She's a fucking Weirdo. I love her. Her character is amazing but they nobody wants to be on T. with her because she's so weird and she is also really powerful in like dozen. No social cues very well and then we got a destroyed to that. Thank you know nobody wants to be the team. It's an empire troy that could go crazy at anything program to gain thing with that. When two is like nobody wants to risk their lives just to have him on the team in case the empire comes and finds him where it's like? He's always kind of a away for people to get hurt yeah so basically we're GONNA imagine like everybody who else is getting the glory. We get the KINDA crappy jobs. Nobody wants yeah. I love it. It's going to be so exciting lists move onto the game. They're playing tomorrow. We're starting tomorrow. We're doing character gumption to this kind of help lead into our main topic topic today which is going to be a fitness update right because they're finishing so we talked about them before that Ganic Body there Jim Bias we love him. We do yoga there. We Oga class there. We get massage classes massages all about full body health and wellness mind body soul sort of thing they recently ended like nourish option which now because he likes meal plans like they send out and things like that is super nice yeah so they're doing everything and it's really about like feeling good and doing and taking care of your whole body anyways. We're very close the owners there we are so close that we're going to play. Hey Dungeons and dragons them very much and they're so talented Yup. Many of their staff are also in the D._N._D.'s and the D._N._D.'s we will convene tomorrow on the Lord's Day a to a demon. Yes seven getting back on stranger things he's. I don't feel like this is a spoiler but in the end they were doing this whole thing on like small town America ruined by and they showed like some dungeons arising satanism you know which we all know like in the eighties seventies. I don't know when it actually have in like people actually thought that and I think was actually like linked to it back. That sounds like it's funny that they put that it was so good but in reality we're going to go do our very first or they're very I remember. We're helping introduce them to at dungeons and dragons with the help of some of their shop. That's also really into dungeons and dragons like Emma Ankara like they both are very very into it. I know Emma is very heavy. In the barbarian lifestyle and curse says she such as a lot of rogues druids. Yeah is my massage person. She is yeah and we're talking about it a lot while she does. The massage is that she does a lot of Jude's yeah yeah so. We're playing with them tomorrow in Jesse and I basically already have her characters race but we're party yeah. We're going to be in a larger party. I believe there are supposedly unless not included including whoever is going to be our master there's like nine. People excited which I think is still on the table. We're the plan is to hopefully like kind of cycle through dungeon master so that we all can kinda play pretty casual and things like that because I think you have some deeming experience and one of our other members and I think M._S._n.. She's done at least once. I don't think she's GonNa do it. Though yeah Corus's probably done it but like they'll do maybe so yeah so maybe like we're going to be rotating through where he probably going to be rotating fighting through like people that come in and are able to play and then D._M.'s that are damning so which is really cool because again like Jesse said so way for everybody to get to play or else I mean some some people are adjust only dungy masters. That is very stressful to me but some people love to do it but I do like the but I think even as a d. m. e. sit there and you come up with these worlds and you probably come up with some characters and you're like every once in a while I was it's bummer to not get to actually play that guy yeah yeah yeah. That's exactly the problem with and I'm sorry we don't we don't know his name yeah. We haven't been four formally introduced to him. I think his name is Gemma's husband right boyfriend. Okay I think his name as billy yes no. It's okay billy. He is like always done master Neverthe- P._C.. kind of situations rations and he has so many characters built so helping yeah and so we're hoping that we can lay switch through characters and whatnot but I have an amazing character so my idea so I never play a wizard which might change a lot actually might be playing like a ton of wizards coming up saying but this particular which she's more of a witch than a wizard and and basically and and I'm slightly inspired by we have always lived in the castle in this character creation and then other kind of like kitschy Gothic kind of stories and T._v. shows and stuff like the addams family family and also like Hocus pocus and things like that it practical magic practical magic is one of my favorite films growing up so it's like okay I kind of one of like pay homage to lake those kind kind of stories and characters so my particular character comes from her name is pepper. She comes from a long line of witches called the blackwoods and they live in a a big mansion in a village and villagers of that village think that they they're obviously devil worshippers and they obviously like made a pack to get all their powers with ESA <hes> with some beaned and turns out the blackwoods or really just like reclusive nerds and so they're basically home-schooled which is wizards that have like passed down these like the Grand Library to the Blackwood family that wizards all over the world come and <hes> and study at for a period of time but so <hes> pepper is the a middle child of that family and she's just kinda coming into her own as a witch and that's kind of what it is. The blackwoods also hate the villagers so it's like a they hate each other kind of situation so my story is so when things start to go missing in the village things start to go missing in the blackwoods state and then plants plants like sections of gardens <hes> statues buildings people nail start to go missing. They don't really notice that first and then eventually some her family family goes missing and then almost all of them go missing and so it's kind of like this whole town is starting to disappear and so she's trying to figure out what happened yours. Everybody and it's only her eldest sister. Edith left left by Ya so I'm thinking so just for like the bill of pepper. I'm thinking she's a human which also never play human so I never played humans an inevitably wizards and I think she might be like conjuration Russian wizard or an evocation wizard so conjuration withered if you don't know basically they can create items and things like that <hes> to help them which I was thinking because this is like a more traditional sense it's of what a witch is and what a which like typically as which is why there's conjuration so I'm thinking that's Kinda like more like Harry Potter and things like that like I feel like it's a lot more early conjuration conjuration based or evoke ation which is basically like elemental so she can cast like fire spells and like lightning spells and things like that. I'm still trying to decide. Can what I'm going for in that section Russian because there's also adoration which is like protection magic if I wanted to go down that route in like protect all my friends that I was trying to protect my family. Those kind of who pepper is and I'm so excited because I telling you I never play these characters ever and like I would be with a character like this. I would be a little bit more tempted to do like a a warlock like a packed kind live situation by wasn't really feeling that the other option I could do is make pepper a sorcerer but they're witches and then she doesn't have to worry about like how to learn spells and things like that Adenike do the wild magic. We're really gonNA like kind of come down to it later by which if she's a source or though maybe that'll tie in with your character right hope he with rich. I'm looking at right now like so sometimes when I build my characters I like to start a level twenty and then worked my way back down yeah right and it's sure yeah. Where do I WANNA go with my character and that's Kinda how I built out this character and I realized is that I had whittled down? It's been so long since so this is a character made awhile ago that we didn't get to play fully through banal. I can't remember what my balance so. I'm going to have to look at it again and see got so the idea behind this characters I will multi class ask to see how many levels in each I got to put because I had it worked out perfectly talk about it now. I can't remember how much it is. I'M GONNA have to have to figure that out now. Because it worked perfectly with kind of synergy so the character your classes I'm going between here are barbarian and sorcerer <hes> right and so my characters name was windward Thomas still in the last one but I might change the name that's a weird go along with it blackwood but so the story behind my guy was that he lived in a big port-town Port Townsend. Thank you know big port town. Dan Yeah ships coming in and out so just like every youth eventually. You're like. I'M GONNA GET A job. I'm seeking adventure Papa Blah. You join the ship right so he was out on the high seas on a ship. You know just is kind of working day. In Day out you build good muscles that way ACSI got us an axe right so that's where his proficiency was an axe came from because he's axes to cut ropes and things I uh broke things so you get some sort of like background proficiency things but he didn't spend long out at sea before a giant storm came and sunken ship. I'll suck yeah so now is this merchant ship just sailor tennis but the storm came and wash away so he's seen some shit he had a time everybody else in the ship died. Maybe we could pop up <hes> but it was rough stranded on an island for a little bit maybe survived just a little on his own came a little wild right and eventually got rescued so he's going to be a big tall strong guy hot boy. Because sorcerer's are charisma base. I have to put some stats in there so probably a good but very silent type strong silent type two is going to be part of it. Catherine likes yeah so it'll be very because the science will come from. I've seen some shit kills the kid it'll be you know he probably a lot more charismatic in his youth when I got on the ship but ever since the storm and living alone on an island for a few years we'll say he he's a lot more quiet now so he starts out as a barbarian but the idea I had was that he had some sort of like late and ability so sorcery all comes from like a natural source persic gift like maybe it's a warlock pack. Maybe he's born with it. Fright sorcery is you're born with it so you know there's some primordial power built up in him so this power was the power of the storm right <hes> which is an option for sure serie storms storm sewer had like an amazing idea for like your big reveal too but so this power was built up within him not saying it's what caused the storm. That's about it could be so he became a barbarian because there's the skills he needed to survive but if he had not been on that ship maybe destiny take another path you would have been a full-blown source or right using his powers of storm magic to do stuff but on the barbarian side of things I'm GonNa take the path of the storm Herald which lets me you you know wheeled lightning being and have an owner of storm energy that surrounds me and kind of picks them hours like that couple that with the source re powers of the storm sewer and I'll have some like Komo air and lightning and there's even some water powers and stuff like that kind of all mixed in and I can confuse my weapons damage with lightning get some bonus attacks do some extra like somebody standing close shocking that basically I'll end up. I think at the end of it if I do right I'll end up like thor yeah the marvel movies plan. I'll be big muscular. I'll have an axe hammer. I don't care whichever maybe both I'll be able to actually fly to a little bit fly a little bit. You know I can lightning blasts and I'm super strong so that's where it's GONNA end up. Yeah I love it. I'm so excited that we're going to get to play these characters like mine was I was supposed to really be so I was coming up with the Nideffer this on a came up with that and then like season to you kinda like planning for scotus started happening unlike fuck. I just made this amazing character for this like D._N._d.. Campaign <hes> with my verde body as I like. I was all out of inspiration inspiration for this other one but she's actually really cool and you guys are GonNa love her so I'm really excited but for pepper I don't know if I'll be doing any like multi classing or anything like that. I can switch source or so actually GonNa look at that tonight and Kinda see if maybe I would be more interested in doing that but I liked the idea of like them having this massive library and link like being coveted like basically being nobility I in the wizard ing world and the which you world but they're witches one hundred percent which is <hes> just. I feel like statically I'm GONNA call them witches but they're not like Gross Taghi people but yeah I'm excited. I'm excited a play yeah and I'm just looking at this really quick now trying to decide. I think I'm either going to do twelve levels as barbarian eight levels high by source or literally ever gets a level twenty. y'All yeah yeah. This is just so I mean I can take a level in any of these at any time that I want so I'll have to pick my path can up but it's like what's the Max okay yeah definitely because at unless I put more into sorcerer I won't get some stuff and I I get more barbarian like more ability score improvements and things like that so yeah I think that's what eight levels of source for twelve and barbarian Bam they go yeah or what if I added like clerk do it and was able to pick the storm like tempest yeah. I don't know I remember. We talked about this last time. Yeah I remember talking last time to do that but we'll say for now twelve barbarian so that means I'll probably go in the barbarian one too. I think love all love all three when I picked my primal path am I storm Aura and stuff like that right then. I'll probably throw like let's see one level in the source real. Get my origin to give me a font of magic whatever the fact that is source points so do magic. I guess level one doesn't really get you much yeah so I could do a little bit more spells and maybe through a few more barbarian and then go back to throw in a couple more in sorcery yeah for sure so let's move on. We had Tamar hotcakes but this episode is running slightly over so let's put those hotcakes aside. Let's pack them up. We'll take him to go joyce. That's what I'm GONNA. Call are fake hotcakes. Waitress sounds like a good idea nicole up diner. Where is this kind of? `Let us right into yeah. They're talking about Yeah Verde Wedge which again if you are in the east side of Seattle area in Seattle and you enjoy driving yes feed on check it out there super cool and I mean the dream is to you expand right so hopefully they'll pop up by you so but the reason why this is leading and well to buy is today we had a Dexia skin done and so we decided added. Maybe we would do a diet and fitness update for you. Guys give us an update so we talked about this before we've talked about like our approach to fitness and we think this is great for everybody right is what makes you feel good and do a little bit. The time to start making strides healthier you right you don't have to do much. You're not the pound the gym three hours to look. I do which has to look a certain way to appease anybody but we want. We we liked the idea that people are healthy and they're happy and they're doing things that they like to do and they're not hurting themselves or hurting their bodies or their mental yeah especially because a lot of the hobbies that we talk about doing we enjoy doing very inactive hobbies. He's your percent right. How do you counteract that because we gotta maintain our health and our lifestyle because gonna live long happy lives? We still want to hobbies so it's like you know. Don't drink soda. Drink a diet soda or water Jank Water Water prefer podcast. We are water podcast water only water homeys water homeys school on squad the Diet Soda thing. We've done a little bit recently I think because it's a great which Kinda goes into that craving like a sweet we were on. We were doing Kito a little bit which I'm about to actually just like get off of which we'll talk about in our diet but you miss sugar a lot and you miss sweets and a Diet Soda. Yes has aspertain yes it could eventually give us can't like a metric ton of you'd have to have so much and it's not great for you and gives you nothing nutrient wise. It's a Ashford sporadic acid is asking great free because you energy the same sugar energy so it gives you that same kind of feeling and boost as well so you can use it the power through so I mean we've been Kinda Sablan those I will say for everyone out there. Then Ella Coke Zero is the best is my favorite soda. I think now like I do like Coca Cola. I tapped by <hes> yeah but until even though they taste good these days and they're not that bad for you during it out and just go to water because nothing beats water. It's true career if you've never enjoyed the taste water. There's something wrong with you. Yeah you should go to a doctor yes because we all know you take that civil water hint feel so good and it yeah. It just feels good taste. Good water is the best thing literally we all of us in our lives have all said this where like water is the best thing in the world yeah exactly you're Schubarth A._C.. You're like Oh yeah you're playing sports. Says like a kid and you get like a water when you just been linked dying right like on a field and you just need it so so we're huge water podcast yeah we're we also agree with like if you have to have soda or you're gonNA craving for like some ice cream or something yeah instead of like specifically caving into that which we do sometimes sometimes you cave just do it in modern yeah. It's okay but if you can kind of keep yourself a little bit and checked maybe just replace it with the Diet Soda. You know do that but so let's talk about the ducks scan and basically what it dies is scan line on this table. Yes and the scan par is like an x ray into goes directly over here entire body and it it measures the amount of mass awhile two million six minutes total mass fat tissue lean tissue bone mineral content and total body fat it breaks down your entire total body composition and so so Jesse and I lately have been gone pretty hard. We're always dieters. We're always working out somehow <hes> in the last month active but now we actively working at I'd say in the last month on through like okay. Let's get to the next plateau where we can actually a little bit more performance out of what we're doing right. We we have goals and yoga that we want to accomplish we have goals and fitness. We want to accomplish goals in general that were like okay yeah. Let's let's see a little less busy yeah. Let's push a little bit harder. See how close we can get to that to those things so because of that. We were dieting a little bit more extreme. That's why I was on Kito. <hes> we were at the gym more often you especially I would go multiple times but we'll talk about that in a little bit and all of this is really leading up to this Dexsa scan Dan which gave us like our total body everything so you don't have to we WANNA share well yeah so I'll say I am six three six start off with just everybody in the ass molly these numbers yeah and my total mass is two hundred eighteen point eight pounds so that is pretty bright for somebody. WHO's my size and you know I'm shooting for having more that be muscle than fat for sure <hes> and I'm getting there but you know it's still away? Scale fat tissue is sixty nine point three pounds which makes it thirty one point. Six percent of my body fat is of my body is fat so it's a little bit more than I want. We have a handheld scanner. Which of course you never trust them right? They're not nearly as good be ads about half of what this number is is with handheld scanner gives me yes so that's number. I've been tracking until I've been trying to whittle that down to a certain number so turns out my number should be half of what I'm trying to whittle down to yeah in thing is good though because you got it down so far from as far as we yeah no I scan and we're going to do another in two months. Yes so we will have an update from there but I believe that it's gotten down. I mean if the handheld thing is bright. My body fat must've been about thirty eat thirty nine percent <hes> before last month yeah and in the last month I got it down to thirty one point six and yellow great like Jesse really in like this last month because he's been focusing a lot on diet and exercise but a lot more on exercise. He has definitely like you can see he's gained a lot more muscle. Am I lean tissue is one hundred forty two point four yes which pounds so and I also I am like people say big boned judging by. I all have really have to compare it to everybody else's scores. I actually am big boned because my bones are seven point two pounds. We believe they don't actually have L._B.'s in their M._C.. Mineral content bone mineral content it works that way seven point t where like everybody else's like much smaller and they're not that much smaller than me. I also got a high. I was the smallest amount of bone mineral content but we also found out that my bone density is not great and it says that there it's it'll fix itself once like if I keep up lifting may have more calcium yeah probably that's one of the things I read that like great. Everybody should drink more calcium or drink more milk yeah calcium somewhere but not me apparently because mine is in the upper echelons salons of calcium so it's pretty good yeah. My bones are solid wrong big boned. Apparently those are my quick numbers numbers so I'm a lady. I don't give my way. I'm just kidding. I totally do so my total. Mass is one hundred forty two point three. I am five seven and all he goes no. I'm twenty seven years old so that's pretty I have a healthy B._M._i.. I have more lean tissue than she doesn't tell her body mass. Yeah it's chair Jesse. Jesse's muscle weighs more than my entire body splash so that's my total mass ass fat tissue is forty two point seven and my lean tissue is ninety four point nine. So what does that put your body fat. My Body fat is at thirty percent yeah and so I will say so my hand calpers I for my chart. Does it really well so an on this chart. 'cause there's like a body fat percent. I'll chart says I'm in the fortieth probably in like the fiftieth P._f.. Percentile of women my age so I mean that's not bad and here's the thing like I was. I was the first one that went this morning and I started Phillix super down on myself like Jesse. It was right after me so it couldn't talk to him about it. Richard Jenny hadn't gotten there yet they did. There's so I miss it some friends for like scratch tickets and like I've message like my best friend in the world and I'm like I feel really shitty not now and they were so supportive but now I have a better understanding. I was ready to self sabotage. I was ready to head to starbucks. Get a common Nacchio in a cookie. Yeah I was about to do it by and once like Jesse came out in the genie got her scores and Richard at her scores at even Christina who owns Verde. She got hurt his all kind of comparing them and none of ours were too far off. We live healthy lifestyle so we're awkward fan really fit yeah and so when I was thinking about these numbers after the fact compared to where I was last year where I was about thirty pounds heavier had no muscle barely left my house barely did anything hang active Jenner genuinely and generally depressed very often like I'm in so much better place than it was done that these numbers don't scare me anymore as much as they dead sure yeah I I think like basically what they kinda. Show is that you know we feel good so like what are these numbers really mean anyways. It's something to work on and things like that but as long as we're happy healthy and you know thirty forty and thriving were doing okay anyways and so if anybody is thinking about doing this just don't get wrapped up in that as long as you feel good yes as long as you're trying trying is like the most bar and then in bleep during yeah exactly you feel powerful when you do it so I think that that's really important but so I think one part that was really important for getting this is we got a resting Kabbalah great which I have been struggling with how many calories I should eat every day and so I was doing kito and my calories were slightly higher than what this recommends which this recommends like thirteen Tino three calories a day in resting metabolic rate for those that don't know is basically this is the amount of energy. Your body consumes <hes> if you're just laying down in your bed all day and yeah guy said it's like if you're just laying down watching netflix athletics yeah. This is not doing shit. This is how much your body uses instill. These are the numbers that like if anybody out there is tracking their calories. Those apps will give you this number or an close approximation Croatia. Yeah this is actually this is one of one of the key benefits of this I think is they gave you a much more accurate number for you specifically because we're all different right you know there are other dudes out there that are six three that might have more or less number right. There are other women out there your age your weight your height that are going to have a different number for this so if we try to do our diets based on what we read on the Internet ah on how much we should eat every day or how much these calorie trackers are telling us. We'll get close and if you feel good doing it keep doing it that way but to get a real accurate picture like I always find. I'm tracking my calories. I'm like I'm not losing any weight. You know this must be way off from what I need to do. Yeah it's really hard to. I feel like it's really hard to self-correct on calories tail. KYW's some days alway more but it's like you're you you have more waterway or something like that. In this like another thing is like I I think one of my things so when you get this done at Verde you also get to create a plan for like kind of goals that you want to accomplish before your next scan and I think one of mine which didn't put on there is I wanna look at the scale less and I think that these numbers really focus on that because all shifts can have into my updated workout plan right now is so I am less less interested at this point in losing weight and rather gaining more muscle KYW's <hes> I'm just way more interested in that kyw's at a certain point you lose weight in your weight bounces around around your out of maintenance and stuff but I wanna be like really strong and I want to be able to get into those yoga positions set alike and things like that so yeah and I think you know even if you're shooting for like a low Oh percentile and body fat you're talking twenty four percent according to this this chart to right so yeah exactly and I've been focusing more on gaining muscle so at right above saying you could get that probably you can probably get that in a month you could get down to twenty percent. That's south part of my goal or the two months you could hit that so then. Where'd you go from there right we only other option is to increase your fat along with your muscle so maintains a twenty four percent variation then as you get heavier right does your to actually go up but you'll maintain leanness you know just by increasing your muscle more exactly right and so to do that in the gym so I'm still doing in Yoga my new say Fridays Saturdays whatever we can and then I'm also I've up to my cardio which I used to not do any cardio's like do not signed me up for cardio? I'm not interested now. I'm doing ring at first. I was doing a like between ten and fifteen minutes before he started lifting now. I'm doing <hes> thirty to forty five <hes> before I start lifting just to really get my heart rate up in keep it steadily up and then after that I am working on a program called strong curbs and I want to say the reason I mean I do like having a nice but I think that that is a major yeah yeah but I have really bad knees from playing soccer in because there's a tendon that leads down your hip and to your neom pasta and it Kinda goes off minds specifically goes off the track sometimes so it's easy to tweak my knee or <hes> for me to injure my knee while just doing exercises away to help that is to focus on gluts specific exercises and that's really what strong curves is too so it's a lot of squats Salata Glueck bridges. It's a lot of clenching south. I'm actually really excited to incorporate. It and I think if you're a woman and you want they get into lifting is pretty good program. There's a really good book. There's an awesome separate at check it out our strong curbs and I would recommend it because I've been on this is about my second week so I know it's not that long by I've I'm already like I've already stepped up. My weight's like in almost every single workout which is so I mean it's so empowering with I mean especially when you're a woman and you may not be a strong and in many areas so to be able to do that just because you're just doing it consistently and you're getting stronger and you see differences and changes in your body and I think that the next time we do these scans or it's going. N._B._A.. A huge difference in the areas where I have the most <unk> body fat which is my guy annoyed which has ma but mike this is actually so they do break down into regional here which is nice. They have your arms. Your legs your trunk. which is the majority of your ribs the top it's lower than that? Let's say like you said it was like belly button. Now I it was basically like from where the ribs jobs do that Little Kirby thing and up the top your belly button up and then the android region is the lower abdominal like lower breast `ages up is trump and from them. They're like from the lower prestigious to like the bottom of your abs is android is like the average but I think it's just the lower average and specifically. I don't think so also then guy annoyed would v the next one which is the upper leg area but yeah you're gluts so the guy annoyed an android regions are your core yeah. Everybody talks about core. They're not just talking about your ads. They're also talking uh-huh gluts your hip lectures yeah this sort of thing which I had the most amount of fat in my guide and my legs which is very obvious like when you look at me I have always had super super massive powerful thunder size years playing soccer so that's where a lot of my massive. Your total fat tissue or is your highest region fat percentage. That's my other reason. Fat Percentage is higher fire in those areas definitely just lower because my total mass and that is only seventeen pounds and my trunks one hundred ten so there's no way this is one hundred ten forty or fifty nine pounds and my is twenty palce. Yes belly button down is android. That's the only way I can rationalize this number seventeen pounds well. My android is nine point three pounds yeah. There's no way your entire abdominal region is nine point. Three yeah. Okay trunk is says sixty. I got a lot of <unk> junk in that trump right but it's mostly muscle yeah I mean yeah by trunk is one hundred ten point eight. I will say <unk>. I carry most of my like percentage fat in my android but it's only seven point five pounds fact there so like it's not a whole lot of fat in the body terms of things it would only lower where my body fat down by like two percent to get rid of it. Maybe a little bit more but you know the trunk has a good bit of fat and as well it's thirty eight point four percent in it's forty two point five five pounds so definitely I think that's upper bell here so you know I've got a little bit of some love handles where I kind of doughnut thing that a lot of men have right in particular a lot of everybody has got fat right and so for sure that's what yeah that's what we see here like. I'm generally fit across my arms and legs <hes> my trunk and that's why I say like the trunks including because if you look at the scan on the upper body part it's not very much fat but in the lower part there's a lot more so there was off the skewed by trunk and I'm basing this off of the regional body fat percentages would put me in the twentieth beneath fortieth percentile for my arms and legs. We just got work YEP. I'm not I mean he can't target so this is one thing you can't target regions to get rid of fat. Now you can target apparently visceral fat yeah another part of our of Kim Yeah subcutaneous fat yeah so visceral fat for any of that doesn't now is the bad pen fat the fact that gives you. It's linked to you type two diabetes higher diseases is things like that so if we all picturing our lives that old man veterans like a six pack of all the time has like big round beer belly but it's hard it's not soft and Gigli like Santa Claus. It's hard visceral fat. That's in there. It's hard fat and it sits underneath your muscles close to the organs hate anger and the grinch the grinch is a great rate example of subcutaneous fat. Now is the fact that's between your muscles and your skin and his Gigli and pinnacle is the word they use in here right so if you can kind of like pinch every region and kind of pinch up some fat that's usually the subcutaneous and so visceral fat really. It's where your organs are so it's going to be in that trunk region. You know what is it the android region ah you're not going to have it in your arms and legs and stuff not a huge deal there so you know I have a three point eighteen pounds of my overall fat mass which again was sixty nine point three being this fat and so what they want for you to have the amount of pounds is zero zero target is to get that two zero as close as possible on this year. You're like a performance athlete. Most people won't get zero and be able to maintain zero so you know he tried to get low but and most everybody else doing the scans had a low number. Mine's pretty high so I listen. This is my target chicken dinner of visceral fat. Mine is at zero point one eight so I'm the closest to zero and the present I was talking to you like this is great. You don't really need to worry about this. Just keep doing what you're doing thing and don't worry about having to get it down very much because not very many people do except for like high level athletes but I think women don't have as much. I think it's something the I believe. They said this this to me but I don't know that man do tend to get a lot more more visceral fat. Women's fat is on like the outside of your organ like more of the yeah. Just it's just women are more likely to get their subcutaneous. Yes ben are more likely to give visceral fat so yes and you know I think not rag on my dad but genetic yeah I think there is a predisposition to have Israel fat and my family so you know that's where we're at but definitely that's my number one target out of the scan. I'M GONNA target my visceral fat and in two months. I'm hoping to get that two zero or less than one right yeah. Let's talk about your goals a little bit well. Let's so where getting close to the end of our episode. Why don't we end it with kind of now that we have these scans? What were some of the <hes> specific goals that you want to kind of do both for your next scan? Visceral fat kind of lowering was so like personally I've been hitting the gym hard to try and build up my muscles toned up a little bit and then try and just get that picturesque muscular. Look Yeah about your ask your workout routine. Yes so usually I wake up in the morning and this is something I'm going to continue doing. I was waking up in the morning starting with some lifting. I started doing strength training pretty much. Only I didn't do enough cardio really over the last month I think because I was looking at my body fat numbers and I'm like these aren't so bad. I figured the decks scam. It'd be a little higher. It doubled so I'm going to have to keep this new plan up which is new plan inspired by a friend of ours was to here yeah is I'm GonNa Start doing forty five minutes of Cardio every morning. So as soon as I wake up you leave I go to the gym I do forty five minutes of Cardio and now this is going to be long low intensity cardio by low-intensity. I mean my heart rate isn't gonNA go up much because for some reason to have a hard time getting my heart rate up early in the morning but it tends to spike like my heart rate the rest of the day so it's going to be long as forty five minutes of that every morning then I lift usually for an hour to an hour and a half depending on the exercises I'm doing Monday. Wednesday Fridays upper body arms shoulders cash justin back respectively Tuesday Thursday all lower body legs and adds though Mr Adding apps more to every day because I also also learned that that's where I have the least amount of lean muscle tissue so up my lean muscle tissue there as well in my android region so which is a common thing like for men the glamour muscles the Shoulders Arms Arms Yeah Trust Times focus on legs and avs things like that which looking at mine like you've kind of inspired me because my lowest total region fat is my android so those ads which H._r.. I'm actually pretty proud of and then so my that is also my lowest lean tissue which only seven pounds but out of the nine point three pounds in that region but my arms though are at thirty three point point four percent fat in their fourteen point eight pounds total four point nine being fat nine point three being leaned tissue muscle or lean tissue try to shoot over ten yet thinking played the life yeah house because that's not all my gym people like already. That's you know if you're doing the math year. It's two hours in fifteen minutes. There's more yeah so then. Usually I'll follow that up afterwards with either cool down run or something or not depends on the day because when Raven gets home we then go to the gym again yes before we go to Yoga Yoga. Yeah and I have another hour in the gym where I try to do fifteen minutes of high intensity running so there's it's a good benefits from high intensity benefits from low-intensity running like I said I have a hard time spiking my Harry heart rate in the morning so it's easier to the high intensity later so fifteen minutes of high intensity and then some light lifting because I don't want to blow my load before Yoga Tai before yoga yeah so some really light lifting just to practice a moves and stuff so anytime you're going to do a lift at the gym practice it ahead of time with like some lighter awaits. Make sure you got your form good so it's time practicing form for about forty five minutes or so and then we do yoga for an hour for an hour so all told I'm doing a little over three hours four hours. Maybe most days and really I've been consistent on that for about a month and it was a ramp up. I started doing just an hour a day. The first day I worked out this last month thirty minutes and that's like an hour could take is like thirty minute like quicker right because we had gone into some vacations other things in our lives we had gotten to where are only workouts where yoga yeah we great workout. However I have? I see it now is more like my active rest. It is yeah because it's it's not too extensive. I think if you're trying to maintain your keeping like your diet is like on point and you're being very healthy. I think yoga you're only form of <hes> workout account. Is I mean you could do that but if I think that supplementing that with like heavy lifting you're GonNa Lake Lose More Weight and cardio for sure so yes after the scan. I'd say the changes. I'm really making is I am the cardio relatively new thing for me that just added back in or whatever because as I went from thirty minutes to an hour a day to an hour and a half day I was a little cardio but then I back down to just lifting and then now I'm GonNa add and some more cardio and I think I'm going to consistent with that from now until the next scan to a target that visceral fat along with a few dieting changes and making probiotics are apparently very good if we're targeting that I think everybody should give a try for probiotic has he got healthy stuff. Increasing things like that will help target that I'm going to try and lower that as priority number one along with that I think that will shrink down my you know android region so that one of the measures that gave us as you don't want your android region to have a higher body fat percentage as a region then your overall body fat percentage which is where I li- right now right now I got to convert at that and it will drop my overall total body fat by just getting rid of the visceral it will drop me a few percent so I'll be down another percentile because right now. I'm sitting at the edge of the eightieth percentile so we down in the sixty two eightieth range just getting rid of that visceral fat so that's all I gotTa do get rid of it and then I'm there so that's cool number. One and that's how I'm going to do it and diet wise. You know people in the past my no. I did the Carnivore Diet. I'm still kinda sticking to that. I know a lot closer to low-carbon Kito. I am yes I as I say `I sticking close to that but I have now a better target for my calories because what I was doing was my trimming calories was two thousand and my balking was three thousand. I think two thousand is was even too much basically because my metabolic seventeen fifty right and you they really wanted deficit in kind of like so that's what our restaurants right down to going to do yeah where he does seventeen PHYSI- minus thirteen three and we're GonNa do that in workout heavily every day but we're going to stick to those metabolic embolic rates because or maintaining a set calorie goal but we're also building muscle on top right and then if your body with proteins and fats as opposed to carbs in wall you'll have more energy. That'll feed your muscles prevent muscle your muscles for being eaten by your body and your body will turn those fat stores and say I need some extra energy to go through all this exercise and I'll start getting the doors. Now this might happen faster in two months to we might get to the point where like we're starting to hit some fatigue and run out of energy and our bodies are clearly shedding fat. We'll be able to tell right and then at that point. We'll have to think something new never get stuck on anything but that's my plan that you're like second goal or your for school like my first schools visceral fat where you're right this goal. You're what was it well so there's fitness diet diet diet mental health care and decks and then our deck so yeah my fitness goals were to attend so we go to yoga Monday Wednesday Friday Tuesday Thursday nights. Were busy unfortunately could go oh to hit class but I've got some time in the middle of the day I move around some meetings and stuff. I'm GONNA try and attend to hit class at least once a week. There's also the one on Saturdays so if I don't make during the week I'm going to that on Saturdays right right. Then that was my that's your health and then an hour of cardio every day so so even on my rest days which are Sundays activist as I wanna get an hour dedicated cardio even on that day right right so that that was that the food wise. I want to track my calories every day. It's going to be the main one in carnivore. They don't encourage you to track your calories us. Oh fell into that habit. I was tracking them loosely but I was tracking them inappropriately because those eating too much still right so I'm going to try and trim that down and track more appropriately now still remain under thirty five grand scarves. You know gatty stick in that direction mental health. What did I say? I don't remember 'cause you filled it out without me. Yeah I was sitting there staring at it and I'm like I was trying to think all the things I do yeah. It's like I do that already so I can't quite remember and then my deck scandals get my fat down to zero visceral fat so you're visceral fat down zero. Oh you're visceral fat. Sorry I was thinking like your total body fat Jesse visceral fat down to zero which is totally doable. I think a kiss zero. I don't think it's going to be anything permanent and realistically amping as long is I'm less than one. I know what I'm doing is working and I'll just keep doing that if it's around the same as it is now in two months I clearly have to change them. So those are my goals. How about you okay so my goals and so oh for the physical goal my workout goal it was to do four days of lifting or yoga a week four days so I can't do any less than I totally do more and I probably will do more like I'll do cardio and whatnot but I have to make sure like okay if I'm not doing yoga today a half to lift if I'm not going to that Yoga class five days we'll maybe Essex Committee and then under that as well? I wanted do one kind of unique active activity a week so something that they don't normally do like hiking. Don't do that very often. Don't go swimming very often. We don't go play soccer. We don't go kayaking as often as I'd like. We got tennis rackets. We don't do this or all things we used to. Everyone and I want to get back into it because I those are all I love being inactive the person and so those are things that I like to do like soccer for example I I have played soccer in some shape or form since the fifth grade and so at liked to get back into doing that in Enron get more often and that would be an active Ross yeah. It's our active rest and we WANNA do that. We're like you're still active but you're not like sitting ends at Jim. Jim Fatiguing your muscles but you're giving your mind break here. It's like a different kind of mindset that you're putting yourself into which really fun you'll think about it exactly so so that was something that I wanted to add in. That was kind of fun. That wasn't just like okay just wanted to do this four times a week and then be done with that <hes> sat for my diet. I also put talking calories because I'm really bad about that when we go out to eat or when I have an alcoholic beverage I really thought about smacking kids. Yes might not have a lot of carbs or <hes> calories in the drink itself Muslim do but even if it doesn't alcohol does your metabolism bless your metabolism for like twenty four hours so but anyways I am really bad about tracking it so I'd like to get better at tracking it and what was doing for the past like monther like maybe half a month. I was doing Kito because I was like man. I haven't lost a lot of weight in a really long time. I've been very good yeah I wanted to shake it up and I was tracking mckellar or my carbs my protein my fast my macro tracking them all very closely. I WANNA continue to do that but I'm not gonNA do Kito anymore because I don't think that that works for my my body works for a lot of bodies and it's worked for my body before but at this stage of my life just doesn't really took my boxes so I'm just going to move on from that and go back to my flex -tarian lifestyle raking veggies and fruits and be happy yeah and I think on top of that was the whole thing of don't stick with something if it's not working and then also make sure you constantly check in and adjust as needed yeah exactly and I like to poop everybody like soup in this diet. It does not make it easy so I'm GonNa keep that in the podcast. I don't really care so and then for mental I put that I was going to read an hour a day. That kind of goes the whole book and Bitch thing like I don't get myself enough time to read and I love reading so I'm GonNa read at least an hour a day and then my skin goal is I am going to lower my body fat five percent by the next one in two months I wouldn't be down five percent which will put me right in between the twentieth and fortieth percentile of women. My Age which I think is a good place to be. I don't think that's like too much to Kinda. Try for just because like the next one is like like elite athletes as the next section right after this and I'm like I'm not an elite athlete right but when you like to be there for at least a day do I get that's Michael Scream.

That Time Christine Got CO Poisoning... Last Week
"Harrowed? Welcome to you antidotes stories and medicine. I know there is no episode last week, and I apologize things have been chaotic say the least and pretty laughable in one of those laugh because otherwise you're going to cry kind of ways work has been very busy. I started my new job, and it's wonderful. But. It's always that stress of trying to learn how to do a new job, and you know, how to do the job, but you're trying to figure out how to do it in this new system, and you feel like you are trying to run in molasses. And for some reason, I am a complete black cloud. And all these really crazy things are happening with my new patients, and I know how to treat this. But I don't know how to treat this here. Like, a measles outbreak and really really sick people with what pressures of like two forty over one sixty in a primary care setting. And you're like, okay. Well, how do I do it here? How do you do it? And then, of course, at home, there's all this construction going on. And I had mild CO poisoning that I thought it was the flu which is actually where this episode is going to be about. And then these construction workers they keep turning off our water, and we had a gas leak in like it's been it's been a little bit rough. So by gassing his kind of taking a little bit of a backseat. So I apologize. And because of that I always want to make sure that I am producing good episodes with good audio quality. And I wanna just put out things that I wouldn't wanna listen to myself. So I'm going to take a little bit of a pause on the podcasting for about a month and come back in March. And hopefully, I ll have had some episodes in the Bank, and I don't have to worry about, you know, rushing to get stuff out the door every week and take a little bit of time off to figure out what the hell is going on at home and work, and then it'll be less stressful. So I apologize for a little bit of a delay. But it's a little bit of February vacation. For everybody. And I have a bunch of ideas and plans for the podcast in the future. So I really want to implement them when I have a second to breathe clean air. And. I really hope you guys will stick around and subscribe in continue to interact on social media because I will definitely be doing that. And I'm still looking for gas. So if you still want to be interviewed for the podcast pleased, you reach out to me because I will still be recording. When the incessant Jack hammering concrete stops, and we have water again that would be great. And I'm I'm planning to record ahead of time. So please do reach out to me, you know, follow us on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter and Email me at antidotes podcasts at Djamil dot com. All of that stuff. All right. So let me tell you about this little bit of craziness that happened and kind of this revelation that I had as a result of it that is related to medicine and actually related to, but my EMS career and kind of brought up this this case that I had obviously I remembered, but didn't realize was still affecting me. So I have been alluding to what happened last week in our house, and I really want to talk about this not so much to Airdrie laundry, but I feel like families have had issues like this. And I I talk a lot about having done kinda difficult cases, and the experiences that we go through an EMS or in medicine in kind of how they impact our careers in medicine and how they stick with you. But sometimes that. Carries over into your normal life, or you think you're super aware of something and you can get blindsided as well. So so instead of having a special guest talk about their career in medicine, the guest issues this week is James my boyfriend, not James former EMT partner, James whose voice you probably heard. If you listen to you are like pre procedural clearance episode, which I don't recommend listening. Please don't go back to that. He did the introduction, and then has not really made much of an appearance since I guess, welcome back to part of the podcast that you are kind of part of. But don't really listen to. Hi, christine. How are you? I'm good. First of all, I would like to say, I am special guests special to your heart. And hey, cutting that part out. Oh, but it is. It's great to be here. I think what we're gonna discuss is certainly something that should be known to the audience, and that is like you said has happened to many families, and we we should just get right into it. God I feel like we're being really dramatic. Okay. We rent this town house, and we had all this construction going on underneath of our this little bit backstory. This may be boring. I'm sorry. We had all this construction going on underneath of our townhouse. We didn't really know what was going to happen. They start replacing all these concrete beams. So there's all drilling in their it. It's like a scene from Monty python? Monty python the holy grail. When they're like, building the Trojan rabbit and us here often descends all his horrible, horrible, construction noise. It was just going on for like weeks, and we started getting like all of this dust everywhere. And it was my God. We're this has been like a nightmare. It was all over the place was in our kitchen. It was around the TV. We have two windows out front, and it was just such an important part while it was Super Bowl weekend, very import. But just in front of or two windows. We had a nice thick layer of concrete dust, those kicked up in our lungs to. Yeah. Big problem. So like, oh my God. This this is not a dust podcast. So boring. But the dust matters because we have this really old guest oven, and we're cooking and this has been going on for weeks, and we start to get this really powerful smell of gas. When we're cooking sometimes. And we're like this is weird. Okay. Maybe we're just I don't know we've blow it off like it's not all the time. It's just when we turned the stove on pre heating it like it smells weird. So I don't know when but I think at some point we were like we should buy more smoke detectors for the apartment. I I remember when you suggest this we had just gone. We're about to go to bed, and we were laying in bed, and you said do we have CO detectors, and we actually we have one we have a smoke detector in the hallway, but we don't not a combo. It's not a combo and we did have CO detectors. Why was I being paranoid laying in bed going I fire safety. I don't know because we were talking about one thing. And then you brought that up. Nowhere. So the no I think I think it was because we're talking about the time that in a previous life. I came home drunk at two AM and decided to test all the smoke detectors in my apartment. Yes. That was it. And then I was like, I don't think we have any here. And turns out we didn't we we had one that was hard wired to the house. And it was oh there was only upstairs. So we're like, oh, this is not good. So she mentioned that and honestly probably vote. I don't know a few days later, I went on Amazon and ordered to CO detectors. They were just the everybody twenty twenty five dollars Amazon seller's choice. We bought smoke detectors. They were delivered. And to be honest. I really didn't stall them to about two weeks later. Yes. One would put one near the kitchen, and then we put one in our bedroom. So it's a two floor like townhouse so one on one. It's it's not very big live. Indie. See there's not a lot of space to be had so one on just floor. It just happens that the few days before with this whole incident happened was when we install these CO detectors, so I start my new job as I've been saying and everything's really crazy. And I work really late on Tuesdays. Except for some reason there is a dusting of snow and they decided to close work early. Because all of these shut down. I'm so tired from. They scheduled me for overtime. And I was like still like learning everything and just exhausted. I think I was also coming down with like a little bit of a cold. And so I I'm just like not feeling like a hundred percent. And so I get home, and I just walk in the door and the him just like, I don't feel that great. And then you are going to make dinner you I came in and thought you had you tell you were getting the flu because it is flu season. Well, again, of course, I've treated like a bunch of people the flu. This was a weird day too. Because you know, it's DC in Virginia. Once you get a little bit of snow, everything is closed. So usually on Tuesday nights. I'm not home school. I felt like I did. I definitely had a little bit of ours. So I just haven't be home on this Tuesday night as well. Right. And you're like, oh, I'm going to cook something which James is a world renowned ship. Yes. If you like salmon green beans, I'm your guy. That's it. Yeah. So you decide to start cooking in your like heating of it. And you're all this stuff. And I was like I'm gonna go lay down and read or whatever while you're making dinner, which is like, hey, cool. You make dinner. And so the flu comes on normal. Flu presentation is all of a sudden hit by a truck. That's like one of the questions that I asked him. I have someone is like did it come on really fast. And you feel like you got hit by a truck. And that's what this felt like, wow, I'm super super tired, and this really sore throat and this year's flu has been sore throat. And I just feel like I don't wanna do anything and like a little bit of a cough, and I'm kinda dizzy and I went upstairs because I'm always cold. And I was having chills as well. So the he was on the Heat's much warmer in our upstairs. So everything's warmer upstairs. I was chilling in bed. Just not feeling good. And you're downstairs Kokin away. Do you wanna tell this part? So i'm. Down to. So I'm done with the kitchen cooking. And all of a sudden our CO detectors start going off. I I think I think what happened was you asked me like, hey, why is the detector going off? And I I I think I said what is that alarm? You said what does that alarm? And I basically I just blew it off. And I the first thing I thought it was like, oh, did I buy the cheap CO detectors, the ones out of Amazon. Like I start I start scrolling through the Amazon comments seeing if there's any factory or software like fuck. What's the word for defects in it in the and I'm like fuck, I got the cheap ones. Yeah. Christina's like, no James, the CO detectors going off we have carbon monoxide, and I clearly was disregarded her. I mean, this was over like. Maybe like an hour and a half to because I was like what's that alarm? And you're like, I don't know. I think it's the smoke Scheckter's. And I was like okay because they they chirp like once or twice, and they get more frequent more CO there is and I was just upstairs, and it was like are you gonna check it? And meanwhile, you're downstairs still cooking and your checking something just not the detectors. You're just checking to see if their faulty on Amazon, and the way we problems all things is completely different. I'm gonna talk about CO poisoning from very medical standpoint. And the physiology of it and the treatment of it, and I'm going to deep dive into it after Dame's NITEL the story. I don't usually do medical education on the podcast. But why not just think it'd be kind of interesting, and I learned a lot about it more than I knew. And I figured I would share it on this platform, but CO rises with air. It's almost the same density as air. So as warm air rises, so does CO. So I was sitting upstairs where it was much warmer. The CO that was being produced by the stove, which will get into in a second was rising. And so there was much higher levels of CO in the bedroom. And I'm not sure why the alarm in the bedroom was not. Going off do think there's something wrong with that one because the batteries just kind of kept falling out. But that's a problem. So anyway, so about after like an hour of his just Turpin and me going wise this still chirping. I come no stairs. And you're still cooking. And I was one thought I had the flu. So it was pretty grumpy anyways. And was just like why the fuck haven't. We check this. And I check the CO two actor it says that we're almost one hundred parts per million of CO. And so I'm like well. Well, we maybe just too close to stoke we installed the or install the detector kinda just on the outside the kitchen to. So I actually thought it was like, oh, it's just too close to the stove. That's why it's picking up such anyways. We both got that. And that was not true. But we like, okay. 'cause no one wants to be like we have a CO problem or we have a gas leak or something's going on like usually like CEO's produced by combustion. So you think like I'm not running a car in my living room? Like, you know, obviously the stove is on. But you you you don't think of the worst case scenario right away. So we turn off the oven. And we start ventilating it. And then we see the numbers on the the detectors going down. And and then that was it. We of actually we did cook dinner a little bit longer. But all the windows were open. All the fans are open in everything was fine. And then magically I felt better. But I was feeling like really really lethargic. I was feeling really dizzy, and I was attributing it to the flu. And I would kept checking my temperature actually upstairs, and I didn't have a fever. And I kept saying you like this has really feel like the flu like the body aches. I feel really exhausted feel right for the flu. But maybe he was. Because I had the flu shot that doesn't feel as bad as it should be. Or maybe that's why I don't have a fever because I was thinking about oh, should I call it work tomorrow? So we didn't really think anything of it. And then two nights later, we were cooking again, and we're laying in bed. And then if yours later this year alarms going off upstairs in the bedroom. And then again like, oh, they must be faulty again. And I'm like, no, we need we need to check. The. He's like, we can't just assume the CO alarms are not right. And again, we've adulated apartment, and we put on a bunch of fans, and it was actually really low level this time and the stove was off. So it was okay. There is no symptoms that time so come to find out because of all this concrete dust it had gotten into our oven and his settled honor burners and 'cause the burners to not burn well. And when the burgers were on it was burning the natural gas, really inefficiently and producing really high levels of CO carbon monoxide in our partners pretty small, and so that's what was happening. So basically, we haven't had to turn our gas off at the stove, and we can't use our for a while. And we're we have to guess. Russell Stover to replace it. And it's just it's been this whole nightmare that all being said on Saturday night after we had the gas company coming out at midnight because we're getting more CO alarms after touring the on a gun and figuring this whole thing out. I was pretty frustrated. And also just kind of like it was dawning on me that what Tuesday really was and that it was not the flu. And that I actually had pretty mild CO poisoning. I was pretty pissed off and also just really terrified. And I kind of expressed that to you and not again, not to really era, dirty laundry. But I I want to kind of talk about this on the podcast just because again, I feel like other couples where one person has worked in medicine in one person has not have had this experience have had maybe arguments like this James you wanna maybe say your side of this a little bit. So we have gas coming to come out Saturday night, and they shut off our gas. And they basically. Tolls was going on our burners messed up so event without Stover cents. And then I've nine of us hadn't really eaten in jars. So decided to go out and get McDonalds and on the way back. I don't even. Okay. Of course. And on our way back or actually will get back. We got into a bit of a bit of a flight what it is. And I was very angry Christine, honestly is probably the biggest fight. We've ever had edit. It just it just started devolve. Ing real quick. I was really concerned that I had the opening and I didn't know about it. I yeah. And you blew it off. I was expressing to you just my concerns that you weren't taking it seriously. And you didn't really understand why I was upset about that. Yeah. I I wasn't aware of the obviously CO poisoning his bad thing. But I I wasn't aware of how bad could be and and one. Of the symptoms and Christine cops speak more about this is anger. And after we got into our argument. I was very angry. Also that night you tried to cook again. And then also I try to I try to cook again. I I was just testing stove out and two hours later and Christine came home. Our CEO detector went off because I took the batteries out. 'cause this is annoying me going off. Yeah. It was going off. It was annoy me I had a window open. But. Stupid me. But. So I was I was very frustrated, and I expressed that frustration, and I I think as far as our disagreements go, I think I would like to say that I just like really exasperated in a not like yelling. But I think you just understand is coming from an you took it a little bit more personally than I meant it agree, and it got kinda heated. Unlike our stove put him ch-. And there was just this huge disconnect. And then so in this whole disagreement. I all like all of a sudden, I just kind of looked at you. And I was like I've seen somebody die from this. How do you not take the seriously I saw somebody dropped dead from this and all of us in the conversation changed, and you kinda just look to me like what? And then I I realized like I didn't know all these entire week. I had been like freaking out about CO about carbon monoxide being in our house because I had seen somebody from a call ten years ago die from carbon monoxide poisoning from fire. And I I was just flipping out. And then that whole day when it was really thinking in Africa found out what was going on it was causing it. And like the reality that I could have died and that James could have died and. We had been kind of ignoring it it like this whole memory was kind of like just in my subconscious, and I had no idea, and it was just kind of haunting me when we were when you told me that story for one that was a moment. I felt like the biggest asshole in the world. And surly. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. No. I mean, you start telling me the details of story, and that that was the moment. And you have a lot of you have a lot more. Obviously you work in medicine. You have stories you. I there is a point. I I just didn't understand. I didn't know the story beforehand. I didn't put the dots together. But after you start explaining this to what happened in why why this moment in time st- just stick out for you. That's realize Otit. I'ma fucking idiot. I need to take things a little more seriously. So I'm gonna tell the story. But I mean, like, I don't mean to say that like every moment in life should be living lived in fear right there. When you've done a job like like EMS, especially when you've been a firefighter when you've been a cop. There are just like certain things that you just hold with you. And you don't even realize it. I think this is probably one of the first moments for me that. It really stuck out that this this thing that I thought didn't bother me really hit home in a moment when I wasn't expecting it. Two of. So the story is about ten years ago. It was in the it was in the winter backup in Massachusetts. And it was really really cold day. It was one of those like super super chill days like below zero Fahrenheit. And there was a house fire, and we were actually not even the first truck on scene. There was a there is another track there, and this house was like fully engulfed and the first ambulance. There was treating this guy who is middle aged. And they said that he was outside talking to them in the backyard without shoes on in the snow because it's Massachusetts in the winter. And there's just snow everywhere earliest there was this winter, and he all of a sudden he just got really combative. And then he went into cardiac arrest, and he was dead. And that was it like they just couldn't bring him back. And this entire house is just a fully in Gulf. I mean, this was. Multi alarm fire and in the city like response times are very very quick here. This wasn't like no one could get get there. They didn't know about it. Like, they got notified very fast. The the station was like couple streets away. I think it was very much hindered. Actually, we ended up finding get into that later. But it was hindered by fire heart's not being shell. Without? There was a lot of snow that you're so this crew and another we're working cardiac arrest for this first guy. So we get called in actually as the third ambulance. The house is sitting on a hill, and because of the weather and the hill and just all the water for putting out the fire. It's solid ice going up the hill in we had to park at the bottom of this hill and come up, and for some reason, so I wear contacts in for some reason wearing glasses that day. Maybe I was really poor Ray out on my context. I don't know wiring glasses, but I was I never ever ever wear glasses specially to work. I remember get a coming up. This big hill was full of ice with my partner and everything the whole second story was in fire, and there's this large porch kind of overhanging the front door and the fire department carries out a body that is very very badly burned. And they basically just throw her in a snowbank right out of the front door. And it's almost under this. The second story porch is fully engulfed. And so I'm not a firefighter. I'm not wearing any gear. I think they gave us some shitty like helmets that were supposed to be wearing. But like one they look stupid like if a porch is gonna fall on you, like, whatever is not gonna be that hopeful. I mean, maybe for like a little bit of debris and stuff, but should been wearing it. Yeah. Maybe I don't know where it was. Anyway. So we, of course, the fire department all lieutenants in whomever. Was in charge. There's lines running everywhere. Like get her out of the way. Get our the way we gotta run more lines. And of course, Purnell it will you fuckers put her here. Like, we gotta get her. So I remember I put my gloves on and we go to log roll hers. I put one hand on her hip and one hand on her shoulder as we're putting along board underneath the back of our in in this big snow Bank in I go to roll her and my hand on her hip just pose away burnt skin in her skit, her skin just comes off in my hand, it was burned. And so I just throw it on the ground we roller in the we get her on there. And we get her on the stretcher, and I had known that. There was another cardiac arrest I had heard on the radio that like, oh, yeah, we're talking to someone. And then I had heard that only just arrested in front of us. They're transporting him. And so then we got called in. And so I kinda had known that that was going on in the best way we were there. But I didn't know who this woman was so my partner and I start working this code. We find obviously, she doesn't have pulses, but we. Can't tell how old she is. Because she's so badly burned. She's got third to burns on basically one hundred percent of her body. Her clothes melted to her. I remember so distinctly that we we end up a soothing that she's elderly because she had compression hose that was melted to her body and the stuff that like old ladies were really. Okay. We think that's what she has in. So another ambulance shows up the paramedics show up, and we're still the top of the hill. And if you've ever heard about riding the rails like if you watch like EMS, sir ER shows like a paramedics on top of a body doing CPR. We don't get on top of the structure, but they're these rails that are on the bottom the stretcher you'll stand on them. Sometimes if you need to go for distances in one person, basically puts one arm around the patient in another arm is just doing one handed CPR while you're moving unless you have like an automatic CPR device, but this was like ten years ago. So or you know about. Or being approximate for confidentiality? We didn't have those devices. If we did they they were far few between they were not super effective in the batteries would die. It's wasn't wouldn't have them. So I was the smallest person there, and I'm doing one arm around is very very crispy lady, and I'm doing one handed compressions and her skin is so crispy Mike, Mike, Love's just rip and I'm doing barehanded compressions on this burnt body. And because the ice was so bad on the hill. It just felt like forever getting her down as basically hugging her. So we get into the truck, and they couldn't intubate or they they got like a super Supra clock airway. I think king tube or something in her because it was just so bad so swollen from the inhalation burns. And they didn't inter Ossius. Line, and it was just very chaotic. And we ended up getting her to the hospital and her who found out to be a relative of hers. Actually, her son was already they're dead. They pronounced him dead. And so they're right next to each other in this was a smaller community hospital. Not one of the big ones. And this house vote did not get a lot of cardiac arrests. So we were just like what the fuck. And you know, it's one of those cases where like we keep getting pulses back on her. We keep getting like for them, and you kinda just hoped it would be the last time you kept trying. But with all those burns your like. Man. I we wanna save you. But you know, who should you save? I know we talked about that in dance episode. But this was an elderly lady, you know, what you would you put them through. We we ended it ended up being called when we got to the hospital. And I think that was probably for the best. The other crew was still there kinda cleaning up all their stuff. And I remember looking at the sun in the mother next week other. They like, yeah, we think it was like carbon monoxide poisoning just got him because he dropped so fast. Probably also combination of cyanide poisoning because as common fires as well. But at the time, I remember the CO poisoning stuck out and being like, oh, he wasn't cherry red. Which is like this rumor that you hear all the time of being severe late Zeo poisoning. Inist? He was wasn't. And that's how that guy died just really fast out of nowhere. He thought he was okay. And he just dropped it. So then the rest of that day. We went about our we kept doing calls. We smelt like burnt flesh with the rest of the day, and nurses at other hospitals like well, you guys stink in like. Yeah. 'cause I hugged a fucking dead burnt body for like thirty minutes. So thanks. I don't smell like Chanel. Welcome to fuck any of us. So so I told you that story at like one o'clock in the morning, and I was like, that's why this bothers me. And I didn't I didn't realize that that was that whole story was behind my my freaking out about this. I mean, usually freaking out about CO, regardless if you horrific stories or not, but my was more charter the motion as a result. Telling me the story, and I. It all just just clicked it just made sense. I don't wanna say it's put those because of her experience. I'll try to I try to explain how I felt. And it's a very hard thing state. What my sudden realization was. Because it's like four different things happening at once you don't like gross stories. Yeah. So Christine told me it was happening and for one I don't like gross stories Christine. Oklahoma told me stuff about for instance, today, a patient had something pretty nasty. And I was like you go away. It's like I say it's fortunate that you had this experience happen. But in a way, there is some fortune behind it because I mean for one I thought strengthen our relationship, basically, I if the biggest takeaway, you can get all his if you hear something investigated don't blow it off if something of concern to you look into it. See something say something don't don't pull James. And you know, I study Cyrus Kurti and have worked technology. My first reaction was oh, this detector has a defect. I should return it and maybe exchange it for something better. You know, look into it investigate it, don't your partner. Yeah. And don't tell your partner. My big point about sharing his really pretty personal experience. Is that I feel like a lot of other couples have probably had arguments where the argument didn't end with. I'm really upset about this because I saw some dicey diocese poisoning, or oh it because it reminds me of this call, and they may have continued to have an argument because of it, and I think I just think it's something to be cognizant of that, especially when you have a partner that may not get it. And and I don't say that in an negative way. Like because you want to get it. But like, you just can't understand what that's like there's no way you could. Because you haven't lived that. And I don't always know that I'm reacting to certain things because of what I've done, but we were legitimately having a disagreement because I was freaking out about something that is. I saw ten years ago. And and I'm sure other couples are have done the same thing. And maybe they didn't realize it. So if if you are having, you know, a disagreement like that like, hey, it's really important that you do this thing for safety because I saw somebody get messed up in the certain way, I mean expressing we're that fear comes from expressing apprehension or something comes from to your partner. It's really important for one your own sanity. And then to your partner to kinda just get a little bit of a clue, even if they're the kind of type doesn't like gross stories. You know, I think you may be surprised about what you find out about your relationship. 'cause I know I was I think we learned a little bit about each other from that. Absolutely you, and I come from two very different backgrounds, and our personal backgrounds are gonna I'm not gonna say clash, but they're going to come into our life as we go forward. Yeah. And it was really interesting because for some reason, and I. I have not done this before. But for some reason after we had the whole conversation. I went and looked up news articles from that fire. I remember because I was saying to you after all of that I was so pissed off. Because in the news in the papers. There was a picture of it was like multi alarm fire today, and there's a picture of another service paramedic with these two dogs smiling on the cover of the newspaper, and her hair is not messed up, and these dogs are like happy as hell like enjoying the snow and two people are dead. And then it was like dogs rescued. Like again, you don't want credit, but smiling perfect haired paramedic who is not our service with happy dogs is. No, that's that picture is not an accurate representation of Burke skin coming off in my hand as I pull a woman from snowbank underneath a burning porch. That's not my experience of this event in it was just such a disjointed picture of what actually happened versus what was being reported. I fucking hated that picture. And so I was like, oh, I wanna find specter. So I tried to look up the story. And I couldn't find the picture, but I did find his news articles about it gay internet. And it was kinda crazy. It was so crazy. I I have not done this say, you don't really go back to when you were an EMT normally go back and look at those stories, we would look like, oh was it in the news trying because you never closure on things. Usually like, you would try and see what was on the news. Within the last week. Okay. There was shooting. Like, I wonder what happened with in the next week. You would go try and see. But otherwise, no, you just moved on to the next horrible thing that happened. Like, you kinda forgot about all of them. We're we're little different some ways because whenever I remotely connected to some store in the news. I find myself jumping onto every website just to see the entire story. How can you know? Can you do that? When like every single day is something that could be in the news. So I found a couple articles. And it was the craziest thing. So I thought this house was white every single memory that I've had of this story that houses white. It was not it was a very bright different color. I thought the house was three stories. It was different. It was just like mostly the color of the house the color of the house, not being white. 'cause there was pictures. I was just like what like that's not what my memory tells me. I don't know why that bothered me. It didn't really bother me. But it was just not what my memory tells me because it's something that I remember so vividly. How do I not remember the color of this house? I mean, I guess is because everything was covered in snow, and there's is everywhere in the smoke. And how could I remember because we did end up actually seeing pictures of on fire, and you could see how bad the fire was at the time. And there was actually a picture of the first patient being brought out and them doing CPR on the first. Guy and actually did not mention this when we were talking about it. But that picture was taken. I was thinking about this day after that picture was taken as I was probably responding to that call and that woman was still probably breathing inside dying. Because she like she kinda had pulses this. She was we founder. I mean, they were like common going. I think maybe that's why I don't look back at news stories. I don't know. But it was just really weird look back. I don't have a desire to look back at other calls. I don't think I usually will. But for some reason that night I just felt like I wanted to win. So I did it was interesting to do it. I saw their names. I don't really care to know their names. So I think also this why wouldn't do it again there is like neighbor statements about who they were in my head. I remember having been told there is maybe a math lab there. Nothing in the news report supported that again in my head. That makes the fire more justifiable of why these people died, and I'm just gonna keep going with that story because that seems to be okay for my head. I don't know if that's true. But it kinda doesn't matter. I guess what? The wide isn't matter. So looking. Into a little bit too far. I think sometimes is problematic. But I mean, you can see why you don't really forget these things and the when there's something that kind of makes you face a similar situation. Even though it's not exactly the same. Like, we didn't have a fire here. It brings up that memory bit for you. You have a reaction similar to it. So so, yeah, if you feel like you're getting a little annoyed by situation, and it reminds you of all call maybe you should talk to your partner about it. You know, I was I was just thinking about you. Remember when you came home from the concert, and I I was kind of in a grumpy mood kinda sorta. Oh, yeah. And you kept trying to the side effects seal poisoning his anger like distance if you will altered mental status which be like angry in. Yeah. Altered mental status. And I was I was little off to and you kept trying to diagnose me it. Will you were diagnosed in your head you'd kept trying to get me to co go upstairs. There's yet where there is no carbon monoxide carbon monoxide, and I was very resistant to that. Yeah. So later on I told you, you know, when I came home, and I found that you've been sitting in low levels of carbon monoxide all night because you're just taking the batteries out detectors. I was trying to assess where you dramatic where you altered and fatigued or were you just in a bad mood and just tire because it was almost midnight. And it's you know, when you go to school like when the things they teach is like, how do you assess a pediatric patient from across the room. So you don't further agitate them, how do you assess your significant other from across the room? So you don't start a fight. Yeah. Of course, that's what I was doing. Because I wanted you to one go upstairs, but also didn't want to be like, did you know that CEO binds more selectively to hemoglobin than oxygen 'cause you'd be like fun on? Like, you feel like I've talking him sick of this shit. And like, you wouldn't listen to me? So I was like as you like you're no at all go away so house trying to figure out like what how was going on. And I'm not a member of the family that says a. Yet. Yeah. James brother thinks I'm at all. And computers in compared to James the brother, I do know lot more than him. So very true, actually. She has three she has three degrees. He has not. He's very very sweet verse we helped us move. He did. So I mean. Yeah. So I told you that later. No, that's that's all I got a just just raring. Why said well, I was saying earlier if you hear something say something if you see something say something don't blow things off because it could be serious, and I could kill you be afraid of everything that's the moral story of be fucking afraid of everything. No, don't be afraid of anything. But when you have a smoke alarm or detector and your house and starts going off. Don't be like me and pay fucking attention to it. Also, listen to your significant other listen, your significant other if they just happen to be they have no work in medicine. I listen to you when it comes Irish. And I turn my wife I off and bluetooth worm public places to that. So take her advice such listened to me overall. Okay. So thank you. Thanks on. What's for dinner? No, fuck you. So now, we're going to talk a little bit about what CO poisoning actually is what it looks like it's an odorless tasteless gas. Great. How can I know to be afraid of this terrible thing that kills people? So now, we're gonna talk about it. Now, I want to kind of do more of an academic deep dive into carbon monoxide poisoning. What it is what it looks like how you manage it pre hospital as a lay person, and then also in the hospital and people that are listening are non medical. I know people are all different levels of certifications, either paramedics, firefighters, nurses, PA's N P doctors, and you may live in different countries around the world. So I'm going to try and keep some things general something's I'm gonna get a little bit more technical on. So just stick with me. I'm gonna try him. So it seems like I'm getting really technical one minute. Just hang in there. I'm gonna try and bring it back. So my background before being a nurse practitioner. I did a lot of medical education on. I taught EMS emergency medicine courses for fire departments and EMT's and the military. So I have teaching before if you guys like this kind of thing let me know, maybe I'll do some bonus episodes onto some various topics if not I will shut the help, and I want to again, but just let me know. All right so carbon monoxide. It's scary. It's terrifying. But Why's it scary? Okay. What is it? So it is a colorless odorless tasteless gas from hydrocarbon combustion burning. If you burn anything that is made of carbon which is most everything which actually anything organic comes from carbon. So that Holik goddess inorganic banana. Well, yeah, basically everything is getting 'cause we all are coming from carbon. So you burn most everything you're gonna get CO carbon monoxide which is different than carbon dioxide carbon to oxygen. That's what we breathe out to different things. So. Whenever we're talking about a disease state or an illness or anything we wanna talk about the EPA Dion Aji. How often is why do we care how affected by it who gives a ship? So the most common type of carbon monoxide poisoning is fire related. So the patient that I was talking about those fire waited carbon monoxide poisoning most common in the United States. However, inadvertent non fire related carbon monoxide poisoning has caused around four hundred s annually in the US around the last ten years with intentional 'non-fire CO poisoning being almost double of that. So all of this information, all of these facts, I'm getting these from up today, which is an online database that I have access to basically is an academic source. That compiles all of these academic journals and articles on specific subjects and curated as a reference that providers us whenever we wanna look up something. It's basically, our Dr Google are we appeal, but it's all evidence based that's where everything is coming from. Okay. So inadvertent accidental that would be me. My stove wasn't firing. Right. I have inadvertent 'non-fire CO poisoning. So CO poisoning overall is one of the leading causes of poisoning deaths. United states. As opposed to other types of poisoning. We're talking about like lead poisoning or something else mortality of 'non-fire unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning is around blend. Three percent. That's good for me. So maybe I didn't almost. So mortality how many people are going to death is usually do too late onset neurological deficits lasting after initial stabilization. So that's terrifying for me because neurological effects can occur much longer after you were initially treated and medical professionals thought, you were okay and those neurological deficits can then 'cause you time cool. So how do you get poisoning also known as everything you should be paranoid about maybe not paranoid? But like everything you should be aware of in goggles about fires. Obviously this is a huge win. And the thing with fire is you can also get cyanide poisoning, and that has to do allow the plastics that are in our homes. Uber low plastics and you'll get cyanide as a by product. And I'm not gonna get into cyanide poisoning too much. It's it's treated differently than carbon monoxide poisoning. Just keep that in mind. But whenever you see someone who is. Item of a fire. There are a couple of different things as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. So just keep that in the background. So fires. Those are the biggest ones and then improperly functioning heating systems, particularly natural gas mime poorly ventilated heated devices, so kerosene heaters camping stoves charcoal. Grills gas powered electrical generators, you don't wanna use those things inside or inside a tent some somewhere. They're not venting properly electrical wiring fires inside walls. So again producing smoke. There's combustion. It is retained within a close space motor vehicles inside buildings that aren't well. Ventilated? This is your real classic in the movies. They piped in the exhaust from the car in the garage attempted suicide. That's what usually depicted in the movies. But also these are things like ice rinks, those Zamboni if it's not well ventilated, but also parking structures, especially underground parking structures or tunnels if tunnels are not well ventilated, you can get a carbon monoxide poisoning from their some cases. Been reported of open air motorboats with like, really, big engines and people been getting CO poisoning from that. And then. One of the things about doing research on places like up to date, and he's medical databases that we have is you find these like really random facts, they like what the hell's this? And you you wanna go down this little rabbit hole. But it's just really quirky little facts. And I find really interesting so water hookah 's can also increase carbon monoxide poisoning as well. And then also in increasing carbon monoxide exposures has been reported to occur in the immediate aftermath of hurricanes. I'm there are studies linked to studies about that. I did not have time to go into why hurricanes cause more carbon monoxide exposures. I'm sure we could figure it out. But this is not hurricane buckets. So the pathophysiology what happens in the body that makes you sick. So this is gonna get a little bit technical bear with me. Okay. Real basic pathophysiology of how blood and oxygen stuff works. Right. So we breathe in oxygen. It goes into our loans. It diffuses across our capillary meme. Marines in our alvie li-. Little air sacks. That are the basis of our lungs goes into our blood in our blood oxygen, usually hatches to hemoglobin and this usually four oxygen the store hemoglobin, then travels through our blood all the way to our tissues organs Brevard, we need it and then jumps off carbon dioxide jumps on. That's a waste product of all of our metabolism in cellular respiration. All that kind of stuff the waste products carbon dioxide troubled backup to our lungs jumps off the lungs goes back across his membranes. And we exhale it not one hundred percent exchanges. But there's a lot of pressures into fusion and stuff like that. That's like the real basic version of it. So you have those four binding sites on hemoglobin will when you breathe in carbon monoxide not the waste product that you are exhaling it binds to hemoglobin with around two hundred forty times greater affinity than oxygen. So it is much much stickier to him. Gobin this stuff with iron that transports oxygen in the blood than oxygen is. So that's not good. So when the carbon monoxide is sticking to humic Logan, it also causes a structural change in your hemoglobin. And what it does is it makes the oxygen? That's already stuck on the hemoglobin stays stuck to the hemoglobin. It makes it more sticky to the hemoglobin. So when when the blood starts to circulate back down to those tissues in those organs the oxygen can't jump off. So not only are your binding sites on hemoglobin bound up partially by carbon monoxide that should be bound by oxygen. But if it's not fully saturated by carbon monoxide in there is some oxygen on the hemoglobin which should be using the tissues. The Austrian can't get off and be used in cellular respiration. And then also carbon dioxide those waste products that should be scooped up. And removed that can't get on. Because he mclovin is full. So now, you're not having gas exchange at the cellular level. So big big big problem. So that kind of further exacerbates this hypotheses or lack of oxygen to your tissues because of the structural change. That is precipitated by the carbon monoxide at the level of hemoglobin hemoglobin with carbon monoxide on it is called Karbacher hemoglobin. So uptodate has this quote in says Kerr boxy Huma global shifts the Oxy hemoglobin dissociation curb to the left impairing the release of oxygen at tissues and utilization of oxygen might a contra the powerhouse of the cell anyone. Remember that? Leading tear tissue hypoxia. So basically, that's exactly what fancy statement means. Oxygen is sticky to the hemoglobin because it's not able to dissociate or remove it self to go into the tissues. So this is a huge problem. But did you know, you have actual baseline levels of Karachi hemoglobin in your blood anyways. So nonsmokers have about three percent of their humid. Logan is carb Oxy hemoglobin. So there is some CO this around in the air anyways. And you do have some now smokers. If you are a smoker, you have ten to fifteen percent of curb Oxy hemoglobin in your body at baseline, stop smoking it right? Oh, it's so have smoking, David. So if you get exposed to see you you're going to be symptomatic much much, much sooner because you already have high levels of carbon monoxide in your blood. It's not good. So carbon monoxide is binding to Huma Globen. It doesn't just stay there. So it's in your blood. But then it's like, well, I wanna go out and do things too like oxygen can't have all the fun. So it goes out, and it goes into the extra vascular tissues. So outs extra vascular outside of your veins, and your arteries, it goes into all of these places like Michael Boone, which is your heart muscles, also things like Sida Krome's in any DP, h reduc today's again, these are all very very technical things like biochemistry. What can you know? It's the fucker those. Oh, going back to Cam. Okay. So any ph has flu like free radicals and anabolic processes and nucleic acid disease. Will what are nucleic says that's like your DNA in your RA? So if you're messing up these processes, you're you're really messing with the cellular structures of cells so Sida crumbs, they have a bunch of biological functions as well, especially in the liver, and that's really all I'm gonna get into it. This is not a super super technical podcasts. Okay. So another physiological effect of carbon monoxide poisoning. Is this thing called DNS so delayed neurological sequoia or delayed neuro psychiatric syndrome? So. It may be due to all those enzymes and shit. So you have all these processes that get messed up especially with free radicals. There may be some impeachment of RA expression of certain enzymes and things like that. And maybe my Globes, oh, heart functions. So this this may be with related to this. I did not deep dive into that too much. Also, these pathologies not Super Bowl them. Okay. So back to that mile globe. In the heart muscle. Myocardial injury. Part tissue injury is a common acute symptom and socio with long-term increase mortality so in in one study of healthy individuals. So no pre existing cardiac issues are middle age. They don't have a lot of Komor biddies, which is how we say. They don't have a lot of other diseases of the patients with moderate severe carbon monoxide poisoning. Those that had acute myocardial injury were twice as likely to die down the road than those without acute cardiac changes and triple those that didn't have carbon monoxide exposure at all. And so the follow up believe was about seven and a half years. So that's not that far off to then develop heart conditions when you were previously healthy. So if you're in your forties without a heart condition to die within ten years of a heart condition. That's pretty rare. I mean, that's that's a pretty significant Kuala of an exposure. So that's definitely something to be looking out for if you're a primary care provider. If you are someone dead is monitoring someone long-term after they've had a CO exposure, especially a monitor significant one and they presented with an initial myocardial or cardiac complaint they have had to have had cardiac sent him. So EKG changes cardiac enzyme elevations, something like that. That is predictive of them having this kind of sequoia. Okay. So this DNS delayed neuro psychiatric syndrome so up to forty percent of patients with significant exposure can subsequently present with neurological symptoms anywhere from three to two hundred forty. Days after recovery. They may not have initially presented with neurological symptoms, but all of a sudden they can develop them and this includes cognitive deficit. Solar more, confused personality changes movement disorders, focal neurological deficits, things like tremors weakness. Paris Dijon, numbness and tingling all of that kind of thing. Usually it's gonna Kerr within twenty days, but they can also last up to a year, that's fun so symptoms. So cool. That's how this whole thing works in the body. But that's way of my head. Would it look like in the moment? This is really important. So the symptoms are really variable. And so it depends on a couple of things one. Are you smoker booking right now? It depends on the amount of CO in the air. How well ventilated it is the amount of circulating air the amount of oxygen in the air. The respiratory rate of the patient in the length of exposure, of course, so whenever you're talking about any kind of poison or administering any kind of drug or anywh. That you want to know the dosing the concentration and the length of exposure. And of course, how much are you taking in? If you're not breathing much than you know, you're going to have much less of a risk early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning our headache fatigue, nausea, dizziness. These are all symptoms of the flu. So. Amy, but there's no fever. So that's kind of that big differential in the Joe body aches, that's important to know delayed symptoms. So I'm more significant presentation will be blurred vision vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, and or agitating chest pain, and then loss of consciousness, so what's up with a cherry Redskin thing. You kinda see this all the time in movies, and literature, not assertive medical editor. But you hear this like oh my God. Look for cherry Redskin as a sign of carbon monoxide poisoning that is a super super late sign and only after very very high exposure. And I will tell you that the guy that I saw that died didn't have cherry Redskin. It may only be seen postmortem and on an autopsy, and and at that point in Nukus membranes or organs such as liver. So if they're like pay no can't be CO poisoning their pale. It very well could be or how do we know? So the big thing about the acute management. And workup is furring out that is you poisoning. So because carbon monoxide is binding to hemoglobin the way we use those pulse, ox mentors. The little things you put on your finger that shines the light to the tip of your finger. Those basically work by seeing how occupied that hemoglobin molecule is. And it can't differentiate whether or not occupied by carbon monoxide or if it's occupied by oxygen, so S P, O, two or pulse. Ox symmetry is not reliable. You cannot go based on it. So you have to use CO oxygen entry or car boxy, hemoglobin, arterial or Venus blood gas testing, basically your assessment in the acute setting especially the pre hospital setting is going to be from testing the air. If you have CO testing available most fire departments do patient presentation is everyone else. Stick around them was precipitating event like a gas leak fire. Something like that going on using your good judgment. Also levels of curb Oxy hemoglobin in the blood don't necessarily predict symptoms or the likelihood that they will develop DNS now when you're choosing testing method, and this is again for more of the provider level, Venus. Venus blood gases are not accurate. But if it's a mass casualty event, it will definitely do, and it also works pretty well for cereal monitoring, if you want to assess for change in long term treatment, something to also keep in mind is that because a lot of patients may also present with cyanide poisoning, especially in the preposterous setting patients may be treated with Asano kit or hydroxide Kabbalah mean, and that may interfere with CO blood gas testing in the hospital, obviously you wanna be treating went for cyanide poisoning. So go ahead and treat them don't hold back treatment. But make sure your commute. Decaying early again. Obviously, you're gonna communicate any medication that you're ministering pre hospital, but kinda spell that out too. Because if it's an MCI or something you want to make sure that that's really clear, and if you're a clinician make sure you're asking pretty overtly did, you minister cyanogen, especially in the presence of a fire. If you're going to be testing for CO levels in blood. Also, you MB doing an EKG? Remember, we talked about how important tracking those cardiac changes are in a patient because if they're having acute 'em is acute ischemia. It's gonna have a big impact later on. So obviously, there's not enough oxygen in the blood the heart's gonna be pretty impacted by that and the elderly more. So you also checking acid base balances, preferably arterial, and again, his because we're not doing gas exchange at the tissue level. There's a build up of CO two, and I'm not gonna get he went to do a heads ET if you see neurological deficits mostly to rule out other causes like a stroke. Or something else like a like a bleed or trauma? You know? Someone may have had seen us yo exposure passed out and then hit their head. So you wanna make sure that that's not also co occurring. Your physical exam is generally going to be on remarkable. And then consider cyanide poisoning as well. If there was a fire. All right. So how do we treat it? This is actually kind of easy in this is really the the really big important part for everybody. If you're like, oh my God. I'm so bored. I didn't sign up for lecture today. I'm so sorry. This is the party's pay attention to if stop smoking by CO doctors and listen to this part fresh air fresh air fresh air for sure get them to fresh air. If you believe that there is C O in a building get the patient to fresher. Ideally, have them come to you do not go in there. If you do not have any protection yourself, and then high flux in if you are a first responder, if you're a firefighter if you're EMT of any level high flow. Hundred percent oxygen regardless of SPO, regardless of what their Polack says if they look like, they're fine. It doesn't matter put them on high flow oxygen. If you suspect any kind of carbon monoxide poisoning. We know that carbon monoxide is super sticky to that hemoglobin, we gotta push it out. And the only way you can do that is by a super super high concentration, and you're going to push those concentration gradients in the favor of displacing the CO. This is a quote that I'm going to raise you from date the half-life of SIA while a patient is breathing room. Air is approximately two hundred and fifty to three hundred twenty minutes so four to five and a half hours while breathing high flow oxygen Vietnam Abry their face mask. So they're not breathing any external air this only one hundred percent oxygen. The half-life of CO is about ninety minutes and then with hundred percent oxygen hyperbaric chamber. It's about thirty minutes. So from rumor from atmospheric oxygen, which is about twenty twenty one percent, you can go from five hours down to ninety minutes. And so when we're. Talking about all of those crazy effects. It can have on your body. You wanna you wanna get as much that's out as you can. So high flow to all the way there have been so many things about, you know, don't get patients more action than they need. You can cause all these problems. This is not one of those cases, give them all that often. And then, of course, your regular seabees CPR if you need it into bait as needed and then for patients that have had a significant exposure and then for certain criteria hyperbaric oxygen therapy. So the criteria for hyperbaric oxygen therapy is as follows if you have an and this would not be something you would make in the field you and be like, well, you know, I'm going to call an stat hyperbaric oxygen therapy request. But it may be part of your clinical decision making to say, okay. Well, I know certain hospital has a hyperbaric chamber. So I'm going to bring them there. If you know that there's very very dramatic. So you wouldn't know this pre hospital, but seal. Greater than twenty five in the average patient or greater than twenty pregnant any loss of consciousness severe metabolic acidosis, ph a less than seven point one. Again, not something you would necessarily know precisely but concern for an or concern for an organised Kimia so lack of oxygen so chest pain, EKG changes altered mental status. Those things would warrant hyperbaric oxygen therapy. What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy? So hyperbaric chambers are pressurized chambers that can deliver higher concentrations of oxygen. Basically, it's it's pushing off that carbon monoxide out of the hemoglobin and out of your blood using pressure. So it's used for the Benz, and it's also used for treatment of burns if your clinician, and you're not sure if you should be using this call a medical toxicologist or if you don't have one because you're in the middle of nowhere. Call poison control near local poison control can help you with the guidelines. Hyperbaric therapy is best started with. In six hours, and there's not much benefit seen over twelve hour. So as soon as you can you wanna start it all patients should receive at least one treatment for one remained at two point five to three atmospheres. So sea level is one atmosphere. That's your baseline. I don't have any other reference ranges for how much two point five to three atmospheres, but that's recommendation. So the problem with hyper therapy for treatment of CO poisoning is especially if there is a MCI. So there's multiple people that are sick. There are not a lot of places that will do this. So the article I was reading so there's about two hundred fifty monoplace or multi place of single or multiple occupancy hyperbaric chambers, and I looked at some places online, and it was kind of funny because they didn't listen places. I was like, I know master has hyper chamber and this wasn't listed on their website on the website of undersea and hyperbaric medicine, medical society. So I'm thinking there may be facilities are not always listed. So call. Poison control probably be the best. But the WHO the World Health Organization also has a list of poison control centers internationally, and you can go on their website. And I'll pose in the show notes to I reason if you want to look at a podcast for hyper barrack central locations, but please don't with with everything disowns. Look it up yourself. This is kind of more of a godly than like, a, hey, this is what's up again, you know, use your own references your own local guidelines and your own teaching. This is just more of a casual informative podcasts so treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to have decreased mortality and decreased chance of DNA. So those delayed neurological symptoms are right. So whatever we talk about a disease when I reach about any kind of condition. We have talked about special populations in what are too big a special populations pregnancy and pediatrics just like everything is eight. There's not a lot of studies for this. We can't really experiment on pregnant ladies now that we would want to. But there's not many studies that are being done this. So these are all kind of reviews of cases in in the pre limited. But the studies that have been done have shown that there is no impact on a fetus for mothers that have had mild moderate exposure to carbon monoxide however for severe poisoning high full oxygen loan resulted in adverse outcomes for three out of five fetuses while hyperbaric oxygen therapy was used in two cases, the fetus did not have any adverse outcomes. I mean, we're talking about two two cases. So the other one was three out of five had adverse outcomes, and this was like to to to refine. So hyperbaric therapy alone is not known to cause fetal harm again. It's very limited but risk versus benefit. So and just in general fetal heart rate tracings in the third trimester. Again, there's very limited studies, but it showed an initial Tackett cardia around one hundred sixty one hundred ninety beats per minute. And it was very regular. There were not any. Filaret shins or diesels. Noted and then after treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The fetal heart tracing return to normal about an hour, hour and a half after treatment with hyperbaric chambers. Okay. The kiddos so in kids symptoms are more subtle they're harder to spot because kids are generally they're not as good at reporting things like this and especially with bake symptoms. Anyways, where it's just like your ability. You're really tired. You don't feel good for kids at that can be a little bit hard for them to report into really express. So you kinda have just know your kid in and see how they're feeling infants some of the biggest symptoms can be fussiness and difficulty feeding and that is the symptom of like so many different things with Vincent makes me really really hard and also younger children may develop symptoms sooner than older siblings or adults because of their higher oxygen utilization and higher respiratory rate. So they're gonna be breathing in that CO that circulating in the home of the faulty furnace much much faster. In the us much more oxygen their little bodies. So they're going to become symptomatic earlier than anyone else really notices. So that's one of the downsides for little kids. Hell ever. There isn't good news the incidents of DNS or delayed. Neuro psychiatric syndrome is much lowering his his adult. So they may present earlier, and you may not necessarily notice it because it's hard for them to report, but the longer term effects of neurological symptoms are not necessarily as significant as they are indulging. And usually we say in kids kids are not just little adults. You have to have tailored treatments for pediatrics will in this case treatment is the same for adults and you can use hyperbaric therapy for children, if they're less than five one of the considerations is if they haven't active ear infection, and your clinician you may want to consider a Mirren gotta me tube. Which is the tubes. That you get in your in your ears in the panic memory in your ear drum. She says there's no rupturing prior to putting them in. The chamber again, not a pre hospital consideration or really anything else. But something to think about the kid may be small and may need to accompany their parent into the chamber of they're really afraid infants in a chamber can get hypothermic really easily. So make sure they're they're really warm. And again, a very very select group of people are going to be considering these things, but you may wanna think about a chest. X Ray for any congenital abnormalities that maybe worsened by Baruch therapy. This is a small sub section of the population that this would apply to and because of the higher levels of oxygen involve hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It could trigger the closing of certain doctoral, cardiac abnormalities, and so you would want to consult a pediatric cardiologists. If this is your concern. Why are you listening to my podcast? It's it's such a niche area of medicine if you are a neonatologist is trading with CO poisoning. You're not listening to this podcast. All right. So we talked about all of that stuff. We had our little lecture. How do we prevent it? How do we not see poisoning? Make sure your furnaces are in good working order. Don't run stoves inside make sure everything is really well vented. And of course, gets yo detectors. Make sure your sweaters have CO monitors in the unsure of the house. All right. Did I everyone to death? Did you like it?

The Entrepreneurs - eureka-186: Cody & Co
"You're listening to Eureka monocle twenty four with me. Daniel page hosted the entrepreneurs Phil Cody is the founder of codeine Co. a British Shoe Brown. He'd launched last year from Chelsea boots to Suede loafers and premium leather trainers the company manufacturers everything in Sheffield here in England using traditional methods and inspired by Phil's favourite Italian brands. A Shoe Industry veteran of over twenty five years. The brand is not only a new venture fulfill and an avenue for creative expression but also a chance for him to use his vast experience in breathing. New Life into British shoemaking. Here's Phil now with the story of Codeine Co fell into footwear. Was having a brief attempt at being a professional golfer. Nineteen which failed and a friend of mine's father owned a chain of clock shops and suggested joining his attorney manager. So that's what I did. And at the time clocks are very product focused that an amazing product training ethic within the company. It was all about. The product has changed for the call now so. I developed a love of footwear and especially Bush made footwear. We sold the mark brands. Barker's looks they even stopped badly back there so that a real bigger range of premium brands so I did that for about five years. Random CLOCK SHOPS. And then my foot where career was underway. I had a brief break working gap which was interesting spirits and then starts to work for private label footwear supply supplying high street retail predominately at the Far East which is where we spent most of my career and developed a hunger makes shoes in the UK bring Hayek premium shoes and stayed in forever since I had a two year spell working for Rockport in the UK shortly being bought out by Reebok so that was a good premium brand experience. And then yeah about two years ago started thinking seriously about starting your own brand and developing a product and putting up on the step in starting the journey. I think probably most people who work in the footwear industry have a probably a dream to start their own brand. It's the ultimate goal to put all of your experience all of the things. You love -em product of the brands. You like put it all together in your own style and put it out there and hopefully people like it and you can build something so starting point for us was there was an opportunity to manufacture in the. Uk Haven't been many opportunities down the making UK. The North Hampton heartland has been quite closed to new projects for a long time. Opportunity came up in. Sheffield surprise because it's not typical shoe making town and we started the process and we wanted to have a different take on UK as we wanted to have more of a continental handwriting. Bit More flare bit less serious bit most back. Not Quite as heavy and just something. I've always loved about Italian brands. Is there a lot more expressive in the way they use materials? The Way Finish. The productivity is looks like it's been passed over through blossom pairs of hands to get this great treatment so this is what our objective was to do. This with a chef would factory and that's been an interesting journey because they've not look like that before so going through that process with them in the UK looking at more premium materials and having to demonstrate these finishes. We want and show them with other brands which we love. We Love the way they've done this. Can you do it and getting them to walk the walk with us? It's been a really interesting experience. Not Easy all the way but ultimately really rewarding. I remember the time when the duties were being lifted from China. So East have quite restrictive. Very High Premium Judy simple to join his product as they started to lift them the feeling the UK was. Everyone's GonNa go to the foul raced and it was almost as the shoe. Industry was abandoned jumped ship. The Italians Portuguese Spanish didn't they resisted much harder and as a result of a much bigger footwear industry. Now which is really coming into its own so as well as losing lots of factories I think when clocks were at their peak they were using seventeen factories in the UK is any anymore and that's happened in twenty five years which is really sad but also it's not just the factories ago the entire supply chain goes so you won't stop making shoes new. Kagan great get a factory started you then go your component trae and you've gotta have the skilled workforce a big challenge to come back still. We have to source components from Europe. There's a lot of brands still sourcing components worldwide and there's quite a lot of brands manufacturing in India and then maybe sticking the souls on in the UK and it's made you and we didn't agree with that with the point less if you're gonNA make you overseas then set a price point and be transparent about it so having to Mike Bell Shoe in the UK yet challenging you know with lots of different expertise from the industry is possible. So yeah we're getting there and we made it for the first range We started with some of the looks. We wanted to recreate so as I said. I'd mile of Italian brands office in creative. Translate that Marcel. Where there's a real treatment of all the pros use the material that they have. Reinvented almost and they have to make very deconstructed shoe. So it's very strict back. Very lightweight feels quite glove like and there's just got a real flair everyday do as a real flair to the precision so wanted to try and emulate some of that using classic styles or things people would recognize could actually wear rather than being out there like a lot of designer brands now. Some of the product is highly aspirational which is great and cope. Maybe there aren't many people she wanNA wear it so I wanted to be accessible but just made in a different way made in a different way to the more serious. Don't braces approach. I guess if if you care brands and wanted to be quite relaxed us very premium. Leathers wanted to use leather soles where we decided to introduce sneak product because we couldn't ignore this trend. Because it's almost still and I think the sneaker on the type of unit we use will be a staple going forward switch off where some of these may be crazy. Oversized trainers will go over the next few years. I think that's GonNa stay so there. We we saw a natural rubber so unit to sort of sit with the rest of the story so very soft very premium material so that that was the starting point so taking some classic shapes and just reinventing them making them a bit less serious and immediately wearable uncomfortable. The biggest thing we're doing is making shoes in the UK behind when shipping shoes. Six thousand miles. We tried to source materials from the UK web possible. This does make the process much more expensive. You can always source cheaper. Even Europe so British supply tends to be real premium priced so trying to control retail. Prices was doing that is challenging in the packaging. We took some advice from various packaging companies. We're going to go recycled but the advices actually recycled card wasn't really all it's cracked up to these much bleach in the production that efforts see sustainable forest. You'll be much better way to go. So yeah so. Boxes and packing side is all episodes that we were looking at the dust banks that normally come with premium product. My view of these maybe gets thrown away all but a lot so thoughtless use organic jeep. Bagwell maybe this re use it and somebody Canetti get something out of it. We got lots of surplus packaging and it so usable or recyclable. Started the journey. That's there's more we can do some amazing products coming through. Even some amazing nominee other products. Coming through people are developing on. Carney's been using these materials from the really amazing funky based leather replica product. Which when they are commercialized. Will be fantastic. And I think some of the Sports Brandon using talking sort of plastic bottle recycled which is great. It's quite hard to access more brand at this stage but we're watching and as soon as we can get more of that type of material the product one of the concerns is statistically heard. Recent was interesting that was in the last couple of years for the first time. The demand for meat products of which leather is a by product has has caused the supply to be undercooked. So because so many going to which terrorists and veganism as much meat and there isn't as much leather and obviously never has to be. So I think that could be something can only see vegetarianism veganism growing. That could be a challenge across the sector in the future so these alternative sustainable materials critical so hopefully. The commercialization of those will happen at the pace. Because it's my mother's quite costly. So yeah we're watching that onto the initial idea to start online so we could remove some of the Ed so we could products to the consumer at the best price possible. That's not going to be at a cheap price because we're making the UK. We're still going to be a premium price point. Thought if we start to go down the wholesale model everybody in house going to a three times two and a half times. Markup retail prices are going to spite by one hundred hundred fifty pounds and we wanted to offer indifferent and try to talk about that in our story that we are making a premium. Put a lot of what you're paying for is in the show. It's not in the supply chain. It's quiet dry message to get across to the consumer but we're we're working on ways to use video of the factory and the process to to communicate that it does make it hard for new back because you don't get any passive marketing three paying thirty stool so it's it's challenging but that's a good route to go down. We may be open minded to hold on. The shop will probably more inclined to think about pop shops ourselves and that type of approach which I think the way retail is going and I feel that with the space and the empty units in high street and shopping centers. The pop up opportunities are GonNa get more and more on. Those spaces are getting more interesting. I think that would be much more productive way for us to go down as we start to look either getting stuck in Sim Motor. We hope and plan to form a staple the Chelsea booed especially what we want to develop. We want to look at Mold Treatments. Who want to try and get some more of these treatments which I love from Italian concentrator product into the UK. So it's kind of walking. What the factory so detailing laser detailing on sneakers a lot of the branding. Applications are amazing. And we we really help. Support the alarm proposition. Probably pop. We have had some feedback about the product. She looks better firsthand that on the website. Which is lovely to hear not helpful if you're selling online though because you need people to actually buy it in the first place so yeah we're going to get more adventurous with materials. Be Much clearer without branding and make our work a lot. Harder to really identify the product. We won't Codeine Code to be identifiable at a glance so that that's where we'll go most sumptuous filling materials natural tumbled leathers will push more into sort of more dress product as we start to develop the former range voided classic broke. First Time Round. We felt like it was maybe not a thing to do. But I think it's a staple again. We've had callers feedback from customers about. Why don't you grow so we are developing a more whatever? Call Them More. Fashion leaning broke than what you might expect to see in the K. So that's the direction. We're going in a really exciting develop. Product is Far Away. My my favorite part of the whole process and could easily spend everyday fully on product development. And I would be very easy today. Talking to the consumers is really exciting. A little nerve racking I when you start to get some feedback that it's going to be positive and it has been overwhelmingly very positive. Some real affection coming back for the product for what we're doing for how it looks and fails and we've been managing that with a very small team that we having a really direct quite intimate conversation with the customers and that that's really good to be able to do because it's always disconnect you selling bay today and you'll managing somebody else's reputation somebody else's brands to be able to actually develop a voice ourselves direct to the customer. That's that's great. We were really looking forward to develop over the next few years Phil cody the founder of British Shoe Brand codeine.

"Welcome to the property voice. Podcast helping to navigate safely through the walls property. Investing get the low down an updates insights and outcomes on all matters property with the property voice. A voice to trust among the crowd. Now let's get started with your house. Richard Brown hello and welcome to another episode of the prophecy voice. Podcast my name is Richard Brown and as always it's a pleasure to have you join me again on the show today. Well could have a treat for you really I think citrate anyway. I'VE A COUPLE OF WEEKS. I'm going to share two pots of a panel discussion. The I Hosted around the topic of Living so this has become a bit of a buzzword supposed in Industry Co. living and as you'll discover from the very first question coating is not HMO's but some it could be the future direction of HMO's in some respects but it's more than that as you can hear through out this conversation. So there's introductions to the panelists as we get into the Into the compensation so I won't introduce them at this point in the introduction here. Suffice to say that We've got an hour and twenty two minutes of discussion. We've got about five or six people on the panel who really understand this. Whether it is operating a different elements of the co- living industries. It will or indeed of occupied counting spices themselves. So I'm looking forward to sharing this with the Shared it was somebody else in the community teaches privately before they send they called it. A A rotten bang-up scripture was so let's go bang of a discussion around Co Living. So she set it up now and let you take it on from him. Enjoy Hyderabadi will thank you very much all the panelists to making the time available today. We've got very exciting topic. And we just having compensation before the compensation coding as something. We wouldn't have thought about too much in the recent past but I've lost twelve twenty four months in particular. We started to hear this. This would across loss in prophecy circle very very good an opportunity to have Unexciting TUNNEL END UP. We say International Panel of the here today. Use a lot of language. Sorry about that. David Bong Obviously this applies very much internationally and hopefully will get this message across just going to do very quick introduction of the panelists by Don Jackson from urban sheds who operates fifteen co living properties in London and his creative connected APP which facilitates. I don't services community invested house mice experience so that's going to be exhausting. Luke spikes from Hagi House Co Living Busey Kotel and service accommodation Bryson Bristol in the UK David Bunk principle of Humphry. Who is Canadian community living developer specializing in Looking off to a facilitating old adults in accommodation and gathers Owen who is the assistant editor wctcam magazine and very very importantly account living customer to give balanced perspective there. And not not least of which David Thomas. Who's director of Liberty Gate which I am told is an award-winning estates agency based in nursing? So only by the way. I'm Richard Brown also owns voice very interested in the topic generally speaking having Hashtag PROTECT A. I'm going to try and ask questions in this session. So without a mind for the best place to stop is one US as code living. Does anybody WANNA have a stab at set to start off with the ACCOUNTA- definition which I'm sure we can contributions. Hmo's I think one of the challenges. I've been facing in recent times having been infected while now is you've got off a lot of people who are relabeling. An HMO CO living because it feels convenient and very timely thing to be doing that when they making fundamental changes to what their product proposition was before and therefore it isn't really living so negative point to start off with. I guess for me. It really is a more about feeding an experience and the sense of community that you create an and the essence oil is we debt reduction of the amount of privates she but a significant increase in my share details to make more efficient effective properties and buildings. So so that to me is what is all about how do you? How do you create from a building or a piece of land? A property the liars higher density but the same time doesn't compromise the experiencing in that place where I'm going with anyway very interesting so this this spirit almost that comes with. It's not just the shad space this does other aspects of that community and what else it's not an HMO. What is it when I was looking for my place to live so I decided to get on the digital name out kind of a while till I find my boyfriend and came home And I know all and I was so looking for somebody I just picked up say for months on. I could just come with my case. Everything was provided and had my workspace Had some markets slate had kitchen on the pace. I ended up staying in boss. Leinna was At Free Tea and coffee as well which was very nice So yeah it was just a weapon that I could just pit. Shop in a necessity. Be With people who were similar to me who will overwrite workers and yeah just so. I could have kind of London pad where I could just so coming. Everything was fine. Almost you know everything's cates audit for you if you like. Yeah and did. Was there any sort of minimum commitment? The length of stay that you would have typically yeah one month on. There are a couple of other places on looking at why I could have just stayed in for a week two weeks site but the particular hustle. I ended up. Living in was what months minimum So it was nice to meet to have that flexibility. The aftermath pike ago actually now. I'm ready to move on Which is extend might stay for another month. 'cause I liked hits I match show which are touching on something that she thinks. Quality Bulletin isn't Sharing economy would thrown out that quote. Democratization been shocking assets in a new way. Not Necessarily said we've we've Housing typically people tend to enter into long-term lease. Oh Tennessee tops arrangement. You just said you could be that for a month. Just won't key difference. Yeah I think so. I quite liked not having a minimum commitment. You know what if I didn't like Boston if I didn't like go people's living with I could've just done Me asking and you don't feel free to share the sorts of age range. Are you in. I am twenty five. You'll twenty five so you would be a millennial again i. Yeah I'd I'd like the way you can tell where I'm going with. The question is is this. Is this model of CO living. Just young people David Bump Hats Navy. Have the view on that. I think in my house. Sorry David From eighteen year olds up to so she was just over forty so it was quite a big age range in my house. Co Living Ends Forty. Okay great so I guess. Look at in many ways. The older adults seniors. I've already been co living. As far as the physical properties extended care independent living. It's it's already been that model since popularized in the eighties in Virginia. Now it's is big business rates seniors come together to live in a smaller room with larger shared amenities however biggest missing. So Co living is is more than just that smaller room with shared amenities. Because that's been around and older adults have been doing it for forty years. So what so absolutely you know. It's what is co living now. How can we serve tweak? The the model of the wave the seniors of discovered the live together in safety in community while I think really is adding in that community peace and and providing access for the people who live there with with a sense of ownership somehow which is low which were trying to tweak the independent living model so seattle. It's already a big thing in the the the new group of aging population. The baby boomers aren't aren't looking to live in the same way. Their parents and grandparents did in in these types of facilities. They're looking for something new. And in my opinion a co- living is is the answer. So go ahead. Did with a really interesting point because one of the things that we started that doings focusing on Millennials Saurian. Her young professionals interestingly in the in the rangers that we're encountering are pretty much just said between early twenties and early forties. And if you actually if you think about it as we've done each and every stage in life presents you with a different set of challenges with regard to the type of space. You need not fundamentally with. The need to belong is very tribal leagues all sense of to us for an expansive definition and as we started thinking about going to actually next to his couple. What what might you need the same things? Fundamentally wrong coupled with children are not small Tom. This is occurring in new small family units. Then you go on what daughter labeled the Hagi in the middle which was in for the consequences of of divorce separation individuals of children in the next time you can you cater for property or environment which allows for kids to come stay on weekend for example so that you keep going to get up to an older adults as a hitter today day will see his and actually this thing the fundamental thing. And so we've we've revisited our strategy in ovarian or model and we now a finding what we're doing is three lifestyle living because that's fundamentally what it is and then seeking to create product at each stage that meets the stage of life. So you rethink the space that's required you rethink the services that might be required to foster community but fundamentally underpinning sang and so I didn't think it matters whether it's a young millennial or millennial or an an older adult or someone in in Midlife or family they're aw living opportunities across the across the stages of life and that's how we think age is no barrier and David Thomas are GonNa come to you shortly about maybe on the demand side you know as an estate agent paps before dude. Dan Maybe too cute your little bit. We've heard about some of the convenience aspects already we've heard about. The age is not necessarily being a barrier but maybe there's an association of Co living predominantly where the younger group. I'd have now a look. You quite right. There's a growing need on all age groups. But but you know Dan what would you think? Is there anything missing from this discussion? About what co- living is nothing so far we can hold me. No mobile collectively think is. I think it's about improving. Essentially the customer experience in a shed a whether that be the the millennial generation moving up three to kind of the cold up adults I think there's also adamant of whilst the spaces in Bolton to not take on both that links kind of view that the space of bulbs requirements changing. It's actually a really interesting way of looking at it. 'cause absolutely that happens. I think there is a also needs to be a focus on a how we can use other tools to the community and to create the feeling of belonging to say. You know you said you take me up. But I'm very very focused on the technology side of a product because I believe that You Property is is the biggest asset class globally dates barry underinvested in technology perspective Spreadsheets used the Labor the Focus on user. Experience sent me in the kind of in the tenant space I think you know. The investment in technology areas like for example you know investment and lots of things very focused on what we can do it. Essentially put the control of the of the environment into the hand of the user and Walsall Platform is early stages that we're seeing now technology from the states which is a little things tend to start really focused on. How can we talk mountain communities? Say How can we for example Simpleton we we make the attendance and events whether that be in the space or whether it be down the road in a in a in a space that we can borrow how commonly create community using technology. Not For me is really the experience on the one side you have to have nice properties that you know that that works. The people in terms of you know the living living his face. I think you also need to think about how you can use other things right a feeling of community. We're getting some convenience. We've got some community. Awesome sheds space got use technology thing was a hinted said these days Some of the comments come back. But David Thomas Thomas that would bring you in and obviously from your point of view. I don't know if you've got less things as well as sales on many. I'm curious because obviously houses so hang from from the state of the state View what is living to you an NCO is Anan customers who bizarrely. This is one of the first times I've ever actually heard of it and to just seeing all the people here and understanding the concepts that you can win and things like that. It's very niche in the market. What's interesting is the estate agency. Sector is very behind on it. I've ever heard discussed the industry event soul anything to do with the proper rental sector and I think that's maybe because it is quite nation the moment as an industry where quite behind because we've only just recently start doing serviced accommodation management and with the lab. And be thing the with a very. There's very few agents are even doing that so I think mainstream stay agency is because of the destruction of the moment because of the regulation and all the things that changing the tenant fee acts and all these things hitting the industry that the estate agency sectors very much. Stick into what it knows. At the moment it saw the focus in on lettings or sales or maybe the commercial angle But what would be really interested is think if there's a specific city the has a developer doing this then. I think it would be great for STA agency to get more involved with it because from what I've heard more research to this. It would be a sensual part to the private rental sector because it really lacks that. I mean if I had something like this that I could offer here in Nottingham Tenants. A would jump at it because of the moment. They don't have that stepping stone and they don't have that community inclusion Alabama to anything that it offered so. Yeah it's an interesting concept I think The one of the interesting by the way if you if you WANNA stay in Seal Free Service to come addiction management. You already ahead of the curve. So That's quite you. It's quite bizarre because it has been around for quite appeared at time and that's why this Living as well. I think this has a lot more. Where the synergy could work with a state agency to sort of get out to a wider population and get more people aware already. I mean what? What are the general on the panel about Who think about you know disruptive technologies like Yuba Evian be generally speaking and a Lotta? The disruption has come from the technology itself as a platform making it easy to access for people seeking to disrupt shakeup industries traditional industries such as perhaps a state agency investing management. But I think in terms of genuine sons of the the money now is being poured into care. Living Development Surgically look at in in this one. You Develop Greater London. That's had half a billion pounds worth of investment Aside from that. Then the money's in the states But that there is an An increasing amount of ninety nine being put into specific coding solutions Look at the this. The United States knock I think over the ten Opera exists in developing owning or just operating that they have together created free thousand shed rooms which a majors website navistar be. Three thousand runs London. tiny tiny amount of of of rooms are being created in London. If we look at the major benefit of twelve hundred runs We all just touching the surface and I was quite surprised. David's of nothing blind dates but David Frum Nacion I. I was quite surprised but then again not necessarily totally surprised that. You haven't heard of it but I guess that's because it's still is and I'm guessing if we look at people like leakers. Well he'll know that there's only really one platform where you can find Attendance or shed house unless you'll marketing you know on your own websites and doing So it's still Bam Berry in infancy globally and yet there is increasing interest in it from the investment community. There's a huge amount of interest in In in the states and big of areas so I can only see this kind of increasing over time is now. I think that we're GONNA DISCUSS Around in the drive is behind it. But it's you know. Espn sitting at the very start. Why believed to be on the way we also a living solutions to Lamar. The young millennial whatever is actually generation actual the way through to. They won't talk him okay. All people just in In interested Point Down Wolf stood. It is a bit counter cultural right now. Collating might disrupt coach sales. Call him coaches in. Uk Ring. It's you know it's it's the year having having more by having less having less of the things that we were born to think they're important. Blake three coaches in high fence. And you know everything's mine. Have all their? You have less dot stuff in order to call it. But we'll have more freedom to explore the hobbies that we want more maybe nutritious food because someone may be preparing out for us you know. More more relationships with with the people in exploring the richness not so might really disrupt or swimming. What what some people think is important that might be that might be one of the big benefits. You know what we're doing here so to that. David is one. I think one of the things that comes through when we're talking about this subject is the need to create an community because addresses some of the failings our contemporary side. You today largely Roy Technology. So this facebook not not not but if you if you if you talk to for many foot will now they feel less connected than ever connects you despite being obviously more connected by boat to the technology that they have. I think that human touch that human connection that desire to belong is really strong. And if anything by reinvigorate repurposing existing buildings but but more important. I think what will happen is we'll build specifically for the products to address the need. We're talking about what you'll end up doing. Is Your your redefined. The way people live and in that sense it's disrupting because disruptive now. The negative sense is actually making a contribution to to to the wellness and well being of society which rely I think that? That's a laudable. Ambition Black She's absolutely what's GonNa Happen? It'll take some time takes a while. That's where we're GONNA END UP ON PREACH. I think I think that subsidy essential as well to be honest the way the market is and the way people are with technology of the migrant that I think it needs to get a bit more mainstream traction. 'cause I am quite interested is to develop has market the properties on the main private rental sector vesey remarkable moves the cloud platforms like that when people know to go. And then if you're on the night he rates combination generally abby and being booking dot com so at his Co. living in terms of a marketing platform to the public. When I was searching for my place I was just so I take some cities I want to live in an Google Code Levin Bossa Kayla van Prague but kyle living and just so but I looked at the top. Three searchers and there is a platform cold Living Dot com ways. Almost like kind of like Abbie and Bay You you click on it Kinda way you can choose your ring. Beijing book it directly to the website from that. So it's just a middleman. I guess to connect the two. I found that to radiate sold because I could see what was available in the cities where I want to go. What wasn't available in cities where I wanted to go and does that does that. Work for the developers amongst the panel does not work in terms of giving you enough leads occupancy for the developments. I trust now. It does Dan for the time being but it has the developments get bigger and our ambitions of ambitious grow them. That may not be in case. And that's actually the reason we right from the beginning to create a consumer facing lifestyle Brown. So he is not a property complete. He sees a place where we create places for people to stay regardless of the ten and regardless it's tight but very focused on customer need and the experience they have with us and a confidence that marks up ABC big difference is quite difficult to find skull conventional challenge because conventional channels thing. Yes exists because this isn't conventional so in that sense what we've still say right. Find ourselves with the an unusual the people to us but we'd love to think that if unheard when when searched on Swazi she might fall. We might come up. We might not you know we don't know yet what we're seeking to president is to use. Social Media. Use All technologies available to us to in will some presence that actually draws the communities people who live in this way to us. And then eventually you'll get to a point. They'll they'll they'll be map for furrowed. Finding a CO living off apps started touch on something that you just said when he saw looked at. You said you used social media quite a lot. That's something I looked at when I was looking so I I wanted to see what You know who the people who tend to be living With what so what that what was going on in my house for events forbearing on So of how active where they on social media because I thought that they went active than is it going to be a bit dodgy. House is anybody even if it is Karma Mike and again made it It you know so that kind of stuff and I did cheese I soaked Off a couple of places while I was thinking well they don't seem to You know they don't have a facebook. They don't have an instagram. I how do I know that the real on? How do I know that anybody's evening? Living there at the moment So yeah I think Somebody my age definitely does look on social media activeness you you bring an interesting point about trust and security as well as it happens in a long haunting private back a little bit to the whole mock Sangala Angola By the way I'm GONNA I was GonNa say this is pushing a probe with everything and so the push monty some of the drivers you know that we can talk about intense poll Gar. You're looking for something specific. Even stay with people who shared interests it for a short time in an overseas location. You have something specific in mind a few. Actually you the wood living. I didn't but I tend to know it through. What can we what day? So I think if I didn't do what I did for a day I probably wouldn't have had an thapar would Also I was going to come down on that one because do FDU promote you'll accommodation as living spices. We do we did. When we started a couple of years ago we were similar to a link talked about the a customer facing brand rather than a than a house models a different we least on longtime basis. Some people might know that is ready to the reds so we don't have anything which makes it more difficult for us to create those those kind of great spaces inside but all premises always being the actual boots All about is creating a good customer experience A because we were unable to you know maybe invest in these properties in the way that let the hat we start to look other things that we can do to create that experience. Which is why we came up with the the the idea of creating a mobile platform for our tenants and so yes we did call it personally. Hate the three left Bracken. Hmo It just sounds over. At when I said I thought it might be senator. The Prison Service it. Just come up really depressing spin off on consent. So I'm glad you know even if it's just sweep rebranded something to say l. on guys let's try and create something in this space. That feels and sounds best. So I'm kind of you know even glad that we're talking about CODE LIVING SPACES MOST. We've identified that it's more than just the Tate Self. It certainly feels. We're now reading this off the housing sector into something. That's more acceptable than people now focusing on creating kind of a good living experience. I think it's I think that's great a really day solution selling interesting because I when I do my little speaking. Pinson is one of the things that we talk about. When I'm I'll take you late is why I don't like the term agem banding allowed the Hickey and it's often conventional regions. It's actually banned because the customer does not understand what it is. You don't wake up in the morning segment. I think I'll go to the nature today. So if that's the case why on Earth would you use that that language in your communication your customers sacred so that I can? I can take aleve vouch for like I talk to my friends about my work. I into this tonight this hatred. My guys walk. They have no idea what is and I would. Not if I didn't do I do this. Fundamentally is a shift in thinking and that's why we're it is very. It's very nice very early days but it is going to be huge. I have absolutely no. No question of APPs is going to be a absolutely huge. A part of the market institutional money starting to appear we ourselves of just Just a agreed terms on what effectively allows it gives infinite capital coming from from Hong Kong and allows us to bring our plans further forward by five years. So we're now contemplating a purpose fifty to two hundred fifty bed units internationally because the money started to appear so it's not just the vision in the Really into these marketplaces. It is now being backed by the focus on the money slicing. Actually this is an interesting way to play real estate. So let's make large sums of capital available to the to to begin to accelerate. We're already seeing Sherman Follow the doors absolutely so David Brancaccio down probably going to bring you back in at this point because I you develop a different perspective with the the different demographic that your serving and what would you say is just leading to this out of the compensation. What would you say this little shrines all the drivers behind what we're seeing is the emerging code living space? Shed living in community driven largely by younger people Just was heartened by you. Know the barriers to entry of purchasing real estate. Maybe one out more being unaffordable May Be just wanting to do things differently than their parents and grandparents did. That's probably been the driver. Wanting more freely style like looking for that hybrid between owning and renting sort of like how digital currency service starter is probably a young person sitting on its coach flying. I don't really want to go to work. I want to stay on coach out tonight. Created an income from their digital currencies. Here popularized Living I think he's starting from there as well people wanting to deliver a different way. I suppose that's the ops the driver but also think just out of necessity. The the rates for especially among seniors really skyrocketing especially the western heart of Canada. So how can we have? We have we house people which is now just ventured into the Charter of Human Rights in Canada. We're going to house people that abuse and I believe Cool living I think. Is You know if we can get used to having less less stafan less personal space. Just what we need. That's going to really drive the drive. The trend is all But Dr that marketing piece would mind book ending as well. I've been hesitant. Bree cautiously using the word co living in our any any of our harketting may do the odd social media post. I'm more speaking for the older adults. I'm worse when we do. Social media posts were talking to sort of the sixty year old with the child of of our client. Emma relying on them to talk to their parents about you know coming here so we don't really use the word living because I don't think it is commonly known in that age group Here anyways but we do describe like the feeling and we lead with our brand people sort of get it. We get the comment. Osa communal hippie living in from the seventy s we get the odd comment which I enjoy but Yeah we haven't used Colin to to Austin for sure. I'm sure we'RE GONNA get to well. How can this become more? Mainstream announced suspect marketing language is going to buy in that and I just think you know in terms of the the drivers whether that trains mega trains the whole concept of an HMO probably came about because of shortage of living space and would you agreed on one of the drivers perhaps behind this trained certainly in major oven. Conurbations if you look at the top five or ten cities in the world It'll be going to believe in the I think. Leading the the the MOMS of the CODE LIVING MODEL. I mean just looking at Which is like lint rent control issues in Berlin? The living marketing is vibrant and growing London New York places like Stop Francisco also that that a native laser places where essentially it's expensive to live if you'll on a pretty standard income and there's also much space to build so that almost I often described. This is almost perfect stolman in some parts of the globe with regards to the demonstrable way doing and back in the day it was a shed. House ways five rooms and we called. Jehmu and that was a essentially. The housing crisis was was against fifteen years ago. I think we've never think that Never hit the new bill targets in this country so we could always argue that as a as a supply issue The e I think in urban space is like London Whilst the walls. Hmo's with providing a solution. Kennedy's the next generation of the Chateau. Where it's it's it's addressing some of the issues that we discussed around there was increased spending. Logan exhibit ever connected well. But we're just spending time ironically on the screen. I know that I'm here to talk about what we do on screen. But that doesn't mean the the evolution of the agent. I meant how can we create community and I think that if you look at the fundamentals. It's it's simple as six. It's supply and demand as you know. There's there's an cost issue. There's not enough stock. There are multiple looking because the prices are going up so well we'll those fundamentals kind of pointing towards increasing the number of people that need to live in these sorts of places. We're now looking how we can make them even better whether that's because we want to compete with other people whether we want to actually create a better product and stop cooling tenants don't even like to call tenants tenants. I think not support description of somebody that is customer. I call them housemates. So we'll did out of a an interesting to to discuss the lack. How do we make it mainstream? You mentioned language. I think that would be a big. I think talking about to in a in a in a different way and treating Indi- as as housemates in customers is going to be called. They're kind of moved to this in terms of facilities. You say you're trying to make it more mainstream The reason why I think currently live in Patriot kind of shed. House at the moment is because I work from high and many come across a house that provides a workspace for me apart from Summing specifically ago Mike living adventure because by the time I saw paid rent on a On a hatred. I or on a rim working spaces while or service office I might as well just paid on a one bedroom flat. 'cause it worked at the same site. Is that something that you to kind of ought to be looking in implementing in your future. Houses will look at you. You must come and see our next project but in a hotel and it said it will end up being ninety nine thousand nine bedrooms attendance studios not ten rooms nine studios and it has the library. Refectory it has cinema chiller It also has a book experts. Because it's something that I've ninety six is that like people will just got all you've a in the room. I get what I don't. I seek them. Irate might You wouldn't expect somebody to work in that bedroom all day Site thank you with live with seeing different model evolve which is a fairly hybridization of co working living in service and when we want to go is purpose built because unfortunately many of the buildings exists on suitable for purposes. We have begun to fight for them is purpose. Built t matching co working on the ground floor co living in the middle and now reading some funky ideas to put on. Espn caravans on the reasons for service combination. It what you will be. Create is a single property building or cookie collection properties which combined all the things that you're living right how we live and work how we want to live and work. Now we see things. Ultimately manifesting is in number week will really effectively urban campus. Because just go back to one of the drivers overnight. Asian campus comprised of multiple with each building is significant size is designed around a life stage but all of those buildings together by a shared libraries. Civic to foster illegitimate intergenerational community. So I think that's one of things missing from from our society today. I've been fortunate to run businesses in the forest and the US and in the Far East. It's given you grandma Alex off to the kids to go to school. There's a whole sense of community. It's actually in family this missing from our we have today so we tried to do is working on. The back of the People Wanna live in urban settings. Urban Station is one of big global drivers. That's driving this is this is many many people not wanNA come back into the cities. That's one second is an affordability is David David would on affordability. That also is driving this so that leads us to is. We have to make better use of the land of the real estate assets in the cities where people want to live in not going to do that by simply redoing science already been do you think reframing knocks him stuff down to build something new own now and I think some of the developers who are raising very significant sums of money collective whose mention half a billion that collins another recently three hundred million there are some really significant players eight nine ten of them some from the fiery something the US. All of whom are lining up really significant sums of money to do exactly what I just described out in five hundred. Seven hundred the collective's new a building. Seven hundred bet the coming up a new one in Chicago I believe they citing in Brooklyn is three hundred fifty thousand square feet now. This is things ahead tonight so so it I think he's redefining. How we live is his fundamentalist. Why believes can be huge on a pick up on that a little bit because the some of the economic drivers which you know very obvious you know the trends verb innovation like space an affordability and all the other facts is such as society changes which have perhaps playing positiveness. Well how about how about an increasing the suicide how about increasing degrees in London? Assuming there's some negative factors into that need to be addressed because they just aren't there. They're uncomfortable consequence of technology is extensively. I didn't push the want to if I if I can do something about that. I don't stand by and not do something about this. Selects live in a in a more harmonious more positive environment where wellbeing central is that possible? I think living zola fundamental of APP is the well being of individuals in your chart are developing Auto Prato. And that's that's the focus on the customer with Matranga So for example in in the thinking it's not yet you re reality but we want to create a growing spaces where people can actually have some land to grow things for example where they can learn new skills so art becomes important part of the proposition. Either because you want to learn to be an artist or you want to you you enjoy art beautiful things rounding so he wants to be able to create things. It's all sense of creativity thicker beyond the digital realm into built into the fabric of the building. And that's that's what we want to try to get to. It's going to take us a while. Is considered a fair amount of money. I'm pretty sure of that. But that's what we're seeking -CCOMPLISH of Tom Looking at so creating a Place where people might not necessarily need to leave. The building will the village in order the next year. We're not an enemy. The technology does technology in terms of. I'm necessarily technology from an applicant actress. That can take from the doctor. You make buildings adoptable reconfigure. Hey use use of small space in the the Japanese or a master's Because north because there's nowhere to go except me sex with space you. Then you could stick stick's absolutely. Why not? Why would it not be you find a place to live? You love to wait. Lives you as you hostile. Life stages is a another option for you to to stay in maybe talking from my personal experience when I was in university my holes was right next door to uni and I went to a specialized music college so full of things that I absolutely loved are surrounded by People Virginia. Same as mayhew left what? I love But I actually ended up getting had quite severe mental health issues because I was just living in this little bubble surrounded by people who were the same and I wasn't being exposed to anything different. Unsa I was just holes was hair. University was thirty seconds walkway and I had. I was just living in this tiny little piece of Manchester and I go go very sick because of it. So how do you think that you could potentially combat by and solve expires? People will encourage people to leaving. Go out leave the bubble and go out and so capable so ever intergenerational Listen if you go online now new search. You'll find videos youtube videos of some really interesting expenses. Selling the forest where they've taken older adults and they started together with millennials. Young youngsters to see what happens in another create combing intergenerational living mazing things. There's some experience experiments have been conducted in in your with putting author with small children. So you in the the effect on the mental health of the older folk involved in care of these remarkable transformations occur. So I think this this place. What did you look inside the place? Oh space how do you create space? Plosser CRYPT CONNECTIONS. And we have missing the fact that we will use to allow him. Grandma anti-wrinkle these these the wisdom and experience of age to help us. Well let's bring some that. What were you still live in? We used to live in villages. And things didn't we and we have the everyone was suppo- everybody else than we do. Mccain and we've Kinda they migrated away we've gone into the city's going on nuclear families and The Nisha urine angered for example. And I think he's starting to play out in society. That's what it was going with other issues so you talk about. Long Cheese Mentor House. It long enough to be mentioned the drivers for change and so we're seeing this model still early stages and he sounds to me. Luke the unleash. Within each pioneer pioneering for the pine is taking it forward will there? You Go Hopefully got a lot out of at this point. One of the compensation mitro did say. It's an hour and twenty two minutes in total. Now twenty two splits over to session so hopefully that scale you when you heard that right at the beginning you to sit for now in twenty two minutes in one particular sitting unless you wanted to of course but Yeah hopefully is giving you a bit of the flavor. Dr Travel of where we go into this conversation. Become virtually the some some big brains and you know real you know a big hitters as opposed terms of people operating this space On the panel.

Thoughtful Thursdays: Do you have employees with something to prove?
"Welcome to hacking your leadership. I'm Chris and welcome to this week's thoughtful Thursday a huge. Thank you to everyone listening right now. Especially those of you tune in every week don't forget to follow us on Instagram at hacking your leadership. Leave US review on. I tunes also this episode of Leadership Resonates with you. Please share it with a friend or coworker. Do you think might benefit from listening all all right for this week's episode. I WanNa talk about employees with something to prove but I was in my early twenties. I was an employee with something to prove. I remember being in several different positions at the first few companies. I worked and feel like I had to show my leaders that they didn't need to teach me. That already had the answers that I was so qualified for the job. I didn't even need any training when a coworker a leader would attempt to show me how to do something or teach me anything I would as quickly as possible attempt to finish their thoughts finish their sentences and begin the task all on my own after all if I can children. I'm capable of doing the job without any training immediately validate their decision to hire me and I'll show live. I'm capable even more responsibility right. Unfortunately this isn't how things usually work more often than not my overzealousness would lead me to doing the task partially or completely wrong this leader. Co worker having to re teach me what I should have learned from the earlier and it causes collateral damage to the relationship that can be felt viscerally in future interactions and it's a vicious cycle. The next interaction starts with me feeling the need to somehow make up for the last interaction and the bad behavior repeats. I'm willing to bet there are hundreds of people listening right. Now who have employees reported them who do some of these things they could be new to your organization or just new to their role but papers the same and it's incredibly frustrating. I'm sure there's been times you wanted to make them look at you. In the eyes you can say just be quiet and listen for a minute. This behavior is more common than you might think and it shows up more often than people with less experience and I don't mean less experience in your industry or less experience on the job. I mean less life experience fewer examples of achievements that lead to the confidence needed to understand that they weren't hired with the expectation that they already knew the job and didn't need any training if you you can picture these employees on your team right now. It's important to know that while it might be easy to dismiss the employee and more of your time on others who are easier to lead the way you guide them through these frustrating times the answer the question of whether or not they stick with it or move on to another company the first step in doing this as assuming positive intent. It's understanding that your employees wants to do well and they just have the wrong idea about how to accomplish this thinking about the last time you felt in over your head. Maybe you oversold your ability to someone and now you have to deliver on your pitch. All all you WANNA do is make a good impression for some at the beginning of their career. The stress this causes can be overwhelming as the leader at your job to help these employees put these big bags of bricks down so they can focus on their actual expectations for the first few months and their role learning being chief among them. Sit The employed down with you and start by relating story when you really try to do the right thing and it turned out wrong be vulnerable be fallible meet them on their level. Tell them they weren't hired with the expectation. They already knew how to do these things. They were hired for their attitude their intelligence and do your confidence that they could learn the job. Tell them your job for the moment isn't to execute but to be a sponge soaking up all the policies as in procedures of the role. Tell them the employs teaching them how to do their job. Also have a job and that job is to teach them. It's intentional. It's not an accommodation started work around. It's what every single employee who is new to the role dots. Make them aware that what they will be held accountable to in the coming weeks isn't their performance on the job itself but rather in their ability to listen absorb. This isn't letting them off the hook for anything rather. It's making sure their mental and emotional resources are being used correctly instead of wasted on invented unattainable expectations -tations slowing down to speed up Israel taking the time to learn at the beginning lowers the need to be bailed out in the future when the consequences might be higher your job is the leader is to make sure employees understand this. Thanks for listening and we'll see on Monday.

"This is your house owner of craft brew creative branding and Design Studio. This focused on at the craft beer and craft beverage markets. How hope everyone's doing well up there? You know we're continuing to kind of ride this thing out Don't want to spend much time talking about the whole krona virus thing and I think everybody is been overwhelmed with. I certainly know that I have But Yeah I just wanted to check in I've got a couple of special announcements. It's going to be just another short Solo episode with Myself Today Couple announcements that. I wanted to get out to everybody And those are Both I think relevant to the time right now so something I wanted to bring to your attention One is something that I've been working on for the past month and it's cold. Craft Label Co and essentially. It's a it's an online marketplace to purchase predefined craft beverage labels And allows you to customize them to your desire and then you can just get the label. ordered online and process that way the other Initiative that wanted to bring to your tension is called altogether and this is a really cool initiative. This was brought to my attention by some friends of the show. craft peak They were on episode talking about Web Design And they're just a bunch of guys that they brought this initiative to my attention Yeah that's called altogether and I'll get into explaining that a bit astroturf. Crap Label Co so So you know. Lately I've been working with a lot of Different breeze and hearing different stories about how things are going right now I had definitely like a small Like an influx of burris needing to get labels done needing to package beer and a lot of these burris. Maybe haven't any. Ill have never package before You could be a crawler. A lot of folks are trying to get into sixteen ounce cans because that's a really good format for to go sales and this people you know are looking affordability especially at this time right. Now is a huge issue so I kind of came up with the solution. It's something that I've thought about for a while but So yeah again as told Craft Label Co and you can go to craft label CO DOT COM And check it out Essentially was so. This is what it is. It's it's an online marketplace. An online store the curly. There's thirteen different Label designs but they're They're P- redesigned craft beverage labels So I've created thirteen. Totally unique designs All how the different. Look a different feel Trying to get enough diversity out there Like everyone that hopefully find something. There are drawn to that would fit their bree And what you do. Is you go through this marketplace and you find the label design that you like And you select that product in on the In the online store there's options to completely customize each labeled to your liking so that would include changing things like The background color. The techs color Different accent colors on the label allows you to then enter here beer name and your beer style upload your logo So essentially you can completely customize The aesthetic of each labeled through the colors and through the content And six can be used in a couple of great ways If you WANNA brand the labels to your brewery will we can do is you can just select the colors that match your like rebranding and then you can use that across each label. You Order So if you've got four beers that you'd need a package to sell you can order four of the same label and have them branded here Brewery and change the name change the beer style and descriptions all that stuff and then you can order like this really great looking consistent branded looked your labels. The other option is if you know if you want to create each label to be designed to at and and create a color code Swear each label has a different color for each different beer representing each beer. Then he could totally go that way. Too so it's really cool. It's diverse he can You know change him in a lot of different ways and the great thing is So these were kind of lake royalty free stock I'm not sure if you're familiar with like stock photography so essentially you're you're purchasing the the licensed to use the label design Not Outright owning it. But you're purchasing a usage of it so currently like I'm offering these at ninety dollars so just want to really get an affordable way for to get in to package beer and really have good looking labels too at the same time so If you think this is something that's of interest Or if you know anybody I would definitely really appreciate it if you if he'd pass this on. Just as people get this cans get packages get out there in an affordable way and for right now since this is all brand new and I'm getting this out in announcing it now I'll offering thirty percent off the entire online store and for any further entire order. So if you go to. Craft Label Co Dot Com. There's like a banner as the that tells you how to use it. It's got a special discount code Yeah get thirty. Percent Tire Order So yeah absolutely. Loved it if you check it out and Hope it's really hope it's useful for everybody. Please let me know so yeah. Let's jump over to the other initiative which is really cool called altogether As I mentioned this is brought to my attention by friends of the show craft peak And let me just kind of go through their their this initiative a little bit and let me tell you what it's about so it's a worldwide collaboration and it's brewed to support. Ho Hospitality professionals. So let me. Just kind of read this intro letter from other half. Brewing Company They're they're part of the founding and it's you know people that they created this initiative Dear Burris of the world. There is an inextricable link that binds together. Everyone in the hospitality. Industry brewers servers bartenders. Bussers dishwashers she. M.'s buyers chefs owners. We are all together in this industry when one of his struggles the rest of pick them up. It's baked into who we are. All together is a world. Wide Open ended beer. Collaboration created to raise support for the industry. We love so much. It's an effort to raise awareness and provide relief even in the smallest way to those who are struggling. We're inviting any BURRITO from any corner of the planet to participate. The recipe is open source. The artwork has public and the name is yours to us. The goal is to provide you with the tools to make the beer at the lowest possible cost. We asked a portion of the proceeds go to supporting hospitality professionals in your community the Russia go to keeping you in business to weather this storm for US proceeds will go to the restaurant workers community foundation as much as this is about raising money. This is also an exercise and awareness so that local communities can understand how daily life has been up ended for those that rely on social gathering to make a living at the end of the day. This is about what it's always been about community while we may not be able to come together in person right now that spirit can never be taken away from us if we do our part to protect and support each other that spirit can actually be strengthened be safe. Be Good to one another rehear for you. So that was a letter written by Sam Matt and Andrew of other half Perenco They are one of the main drivers behind this So here's So you can check this out at all. Together dot beer That's altogether dot beer So they have a base recipe The base recipe has been contributed by other half during And is designed to be easily brewed with fairly common ingredients And you can download the recipe directly from the website So that's really cool And also there is a label design. So this is another cool thing from the brand. Perspective is that stout collective They created the label design label artwork and It's available for anyone to use You can download these templates In a has a branding for altogether. But it's really cool it has. It's a little panel aside panel or you can go and design your own branding for your own brewery I've already helped out a client with this It looks really cool. I can't wait to see these on the shelf. they're also offering label printing through blue label. Packaging Co and. They say that they'll print this at cost for the participator participating breweries That's also on the website to let you know about that And again there's a little plug for craft peak. 'cause crappy donated their time And the technology to develop an host the website for this effort So yeah they love to get the word out. Use the HASHTAG altogether beer And you know this is all to support Burris or around the world to support the hospital. You know hospitality industry and so far. They've got five hundred fifty nine breeze participating in forty one states in thirty nine countries.

The Pennsylvania seems pretty split they have nine and nine Republicans and Democrats okay. This isn't good busy there's there's lots of good busy like my yoga teacher training which I have now mentioned eight times yes like how in the last episode mentioned a witch like Thirty Times how many senators is the state of Pennsylvania get go thirty two but the star was behind her ear the whole emancipation on one Harley Quinn and we got the trailer for that and I think it looks fantastic I love Margot Robie as Harley Quinn I think three no no no that's GonNa be their state legislators now okay maybe this yeah yeah there's no way there's like ten thousand people okay you'll say three house I know California has like thirty yeah way too many bright the Dr depend I mean it depends on the size of the population of the stay right so I would still I don't know how many air the first trailer for the birds of prey film which is great and the Fabulous fantabulous ninety s cartoon is what I grew up with so suck Dick but in the comic books and a lot of Harley Quinn's you senators everybody has descended I thought I was right a- The question was yeah yes since I think the last one came out I think it was announced the day that our last podcast episode came out We California wow I don't think we ban California from the union not no I think really wrong talkers that's how I was like I was like fuck I don't know I don't know how do I look at this there are a total god I mean it's not like gray and like Comic Book Committee Royalty Haters Same Outrage culture people like to be outraged she plays Black Canary Mary Elizabeth winstead as huntress which I love Mary Elizabeth Wednesday because I'm a huge fan of Scott pilgrim vs the world well five hundred thirty five members of Congress okay pity bobby has eighteen members represented yes probably yeah those ones in Lion King were quite tamed except for what's the what's the dumb one said Phillies name is sid hey on people love to hate things and I'm like why hate things when you could find the things that you like about it I like Margot Robbie zero opinions because you didn't like it then but it's still pretty so I'm gonNA stay five say it's like right in whatever the average is John Oh my God pencil essay three character is she has a cute little Hyena and I love them and in the trailer she has a Hyena and I love those they brought it actually looks really good we have a lot of McGregor's Senate as black mask and I think he is fantabulous fantabulous like her I mean Pennsylvania can't be the gives a shit probably pretty populated because there's some major cities Philadelphia Pittsburgh right like there's McCain's two weeks anyways yeah no matter what so you have time to read books yeah yeah so like I said our next on Frankenstein and then the one after that was the turn of the screw it's really the star in suicide squad I'm in she was really lonely I mean I am I gonNa say Suicide Squad was back because I feel like a lot of people just rag on it and I'm like it's not that bad it sounds like a pretty cool they cast is supposed to be link mazing and I watched the trailer and it looked really really impressive Taylor did you watch the trailer no choice to true okay well one of my favorite things in the trailer is I actually have read the Harlequin comic books it's not like stupid CGI good real that's a real hanging it's actually a real hyena and Margot Robbie teamed it I think there are people at team is a great time to kind of catch up on some of our older episodes I catch up on bucking land book out on a regular cadence uh-huh February seventh is win the movie comes out so we'll definitely go see that have you seen I'm on page in there is apparently do really cool I think that we have really cool casting here like journey Bell Bell it's interesting Michael Sheen is in it whom we love Selena Gomez Antonio Vendettas the waves this guy says the character from Ice Age they look very similar though his name it could be said but we got eighteen I'm the closest to that you're still two hundred something like this is wrong I don't know I don't know what I'm doing that'll be really interesting to see how he Liam's I don't think he'll do so much acting from now on so him too so yeah I think it's a great cast in it's one of Robert Downey junior I rolls it is for sure all coming off of iron man so Asian 'cause he really stood out in this trailer which I mean isn't hard 'cause he is one of the only guys in the trailer but the way that he but you know you look at how much money he yeah he made like three hundred million dollars yeah dams he's probably ooh he can do all the coke if he wants to at this point in just live in a bed of coq ten we don't we don't think that he should do that really turned to live around thirty we got a trailer for that I'm not going to lie with you people I then one hundred percent watch all of it but it looked great for what I did see it looks like it's GonNa be fun TV right now is kind of the huge gaps whereas like I feel like when we were kiddos there was there was a season for TB and then there was Tageblatt Rask is really impressive I like there so I definitely recommend everybody go given out a watch I don't have little Robert Downey junior is going to play do little yeah at that trailer just came out fuck I'm Outta I didn't put them in my hotcakes but it looks really good it does look really good and I I know it's very basic of me to say that I love Harley Quinn but I liked Harlequin for a very long time she came out in the one of her first appearances was in the DOC Emmett Emma Thompson it Tamala and John Cena which they couldn't see him throughout the entire filming so get we gotta get Outta here for Yoga and like yeah we are we are times I gotta do this but yes onto hotcakes on stuff that's actually okay cool whatever time yeah okay now you do the third time and I've just lost me completely exactly and it's like not even all the fucking audited remember did make it home but I've seen I've seen the the wrapper for it the millions of your finances yes yeah I don't now that sounds right though yeah that's pretty reasonable fees and invest in that shit getting back L. is returns yeah even conservatively he's pulled in five percent damn you know something like that can it's fifteen that's fine so we're excited that it's coming out we're going to have to go back and probably watch the update was on playstation five what was bonkers I mean it's just exciting news I don't say bonkers but it's really exciting news like so one of the big things that happened this past week was we got some absolute bonkers news you formulate my opinions on on it I'm still not going to not watch it s don't really hate on the show itself yes hey on the creators and their idea that back you just lost my interest a year after I'm like okay I'm still interesting I have no idea I cannot remember the last season and you do it like you do at once on it I don't do as much research and Jesse haven't looked into it so I'm I wanted to address it in this episode and probably next episode position to that so it's like we knew playstation five was going to be announced for a while the specs that they I don't think they've actually given like full specs it you can move onto your other projects and say okay I'm done I don't need to you know divert time from whatever you WANNA work on to try and get this done and you don't have to delay actress compatibility and really cool games that are already in development and services I don't have as much information the typical rick and Morty Fair Yeah I think like just in talking to the other day because right now we're watching Gilmore girls and I think our biggest complaint with the season where it was obviously off right everybody thinks her show so important that they're like no we're GONNA take two years they are artists but it's like it's like are anymore either at the moment win you put out a fucking sauce on for McDonald's and like causing uproar I'm like I don't give a fuck dolls ends because what we're going to get to there's not going to be a playstation six and that's not to say that they might come out with some sort of also have said that before where it's like this is it and nobody's really talking about which is the thing that's really interesting and that everybody should pay attention to are the cloud services associated with these Right Oh thank you tell me then why aren't telling you all this stuff but you know it's like the new these new this next generation of systems are going to have you know much updated answer but you know being realistic your games can't get any better than they perform really right now really what's going to get better is you're going to be able to you know your gains can't really get much faster one thing they're trying to do is off load of content to the cloud so that'll actually Gainesville boot faster so like actively stream your game from your virtual playstation console in the cloud right so Sony's working out a lot of those kinks in the back end stuff to trickle down on the back end or whatever and and kind of pick and choose and things like that and they've increased boot speeds and things like that for game so so you're getting a little fat they don't have quite the cloud component that Microsoft does because Microsoft azure sale of Microsoft and doing this for a while with their xbox huge in terms of like the next next generation to when it comes to like well just get yourself a little computer pair places an Xbox anyways so you know nothing's really GonNa Change besides console hardware is GonNa get kind of obsolete yeah they need to take their own time it's like just don't come out with it and that's the point at justice when they're supposed to be ended ended perform lots of backups in the cloud Sony's catching up in that regards but all that stuff is gonNA come out with this next wave of systems so AH maybe they've given some of the specs but they're they're on par with that new xbox coming out like everything's on power and it's the peak of where we can get hardware to be now really the big big news that we're getting out of all this is that if you pay attention to what's going on in the background cloud stuff so I share and so that is going to be branding marketing on it different sauce no it has good morning on it oh yeah they do have one with that but now they have like just black African sauce it was one thing that I find really funny and it ties in with this article that I read last week Abou- Will Smith's new film Gemini and is they announced this is something Sony's doing but I guarantee you Microsoft's going to do it as well but you know just may not get but now that they heard Sony he's going to do it but like say you want to install just Asian controller to launch playstation dot COM stream all your games from their done you know and we're already used to paying subscription services to playstation no player component of a game and leave off the multiplayer stuff like sure and so your game all install faster variant and you can leave the multi the what's the difference between a four K. really is like we're going to have a lot better for like split-screen scaling better yeah right both windows could be right now the PS said to support eight K. Gaming but all the demonstrations were done in four K. and from what yeah but still I mean it was partnered with Maureen how to brick and mortar like art on it were branded by them yes it did we got it had the guy on it the we so that's right but that's how the world should work but that ends you whatever the hell they want no it's absolutely right yep amazing job making younger will Smith Look so real but you cannot really get the full intensity of how amazing except for sure so he could live off that money for sure for sure way but let's say Rick and morty morning guys it's coming out new season on no there's not a lot of things that can work with ak right now so yeah like I think you can get some K TV whatever we've gone past the point where I can make out individual pixels friend things like that really like we've gotten past that already so it's kind of like what's the point four K. in full resolution versus like having the resolution or whatever any other resolution will get better but like you know that whole thing like you're I can only see so well special equipment that no other felt like movie studio or movie theater has I think there are only two that can play in the director intended it to be seen like I mean that just seems ridiculous well so they've been recording movies and four K. since like yes becks and we're going to start seeing a lot better performance blah blah blah blah blah but and everybody's paying attention to that and they're looking at the prices and things like that like I see this article from then get looks on it like in any theater in the United States they had to go into where they previewed it they had to go in and equipped because it's like so the Will Smith have you seen the trailer for John where it's like Bill Smith younger will Smith older so they did such goes by am I going to is that the movie that I'm going to go back and watch this in in like extra now but if it gets released yeah like twenty years combined with their high dollar high dollar budget on CGI you know like okay well one day you can watch it and ed or the last season whatever we'll have to rewatch GonNa Watch about shit yeah well I like the sleeping men is also one of the only I believe from people that have told me so one of the only likable characters in the entire show so you really WanNa know what happened yeah random has a cake rate am I gonNA rush out by day one no yeah no and like so that so that Kinda ties in with the whole thing season ending on it would've been cool well so El Camino is the new film that just came out is based on one of the characters making bad so my but most of the mostly the season and so you get an idea of like what motivations Jesse had at that point because like if you know the show Jesse or else it there and get mad about why it hasn't ended yet because there are plenty of times in that show too that they ended it yeah just make this end living under a rock yet at the end of breaking bad Jesse Pink men kind of his story is just sorta where does he go right and so that's you know that's not really thing similar but it's still like to theaters in the entire country that they're going to show it at that'll play it in something kinda similar but for the most part you're never gonna see it in the why don't you talk about that because if everybody knows the dynamic of Jesse and is relationship Jesse watches breaking bad raven does not and I think that yeah and you definitely you get the idea it's really regarding it's got a lot of flashbacks to the last season of breaking bad or last two seasons really we'll go back to that whole thing like I said they like camera technology for the film industry has outpaced what it's like for a long long time they're already ahead of the curve so it sounds like you know up to because that's the one that people are trying to sell for hundreds and thousands of dollars or whatever Ah okay so I think that it's coming out so I saw here El Camino why don't you into the Office for Christmas it's the grandeur Eddie a thing yeah but then it affected him at the end of it you know what he was left with when he ran away and he gets away and yeah I believe it's Robert Forster the man who recently died who is in breaking bad the actor Robert Forster who recently died yeah has Jesse doing these things and we all know the tax that people were screwing into them and you know the treatment he has put through what it kind of shades that a little bit more with the characters the way high-skill stuff yeah so and not have a really great time marketing that to the massive time selling it later the second time involved with in the last season so you get a little bit more idea of what was going on and what his mental state was at and things like that and how this whole thing as I looked at a couple like they're not that expensive and things like that really all AK really means is are there games that you could go well in like maybe into you oh yeah because again I want stuff to end I'm not I'm not type person just watch things why they're coming out until the end and then I'll watch the whole thing beginning to end watch it now it's over well yeah watched it again like recently like all the way up for the first time actually all the way through because I watched it when it came out or whatever I just got bored after like a little bit more to it it was kind of cool right so yeah there's nothing like overtly exciting about it did you need to know what happened to Jesse so now the Special Aka version comes out on whatever whatever it's going to be I can't remember exactly what were but yeah that'll you know unlike breaking bad you should probably go check it out so it's hot topic it's hot buzz two hours yeah that's my take I love it I yeah it's like okay cool like I watched it a revamped the just long enough since the closing of the series that people are like interested in you know didn't watch it and I probably won't but you should watch it if you want to you all right last hotcakes before we had into our at the movie and then he drives off into the sunset yeah so tell me how did you like it or thought it was pretty good yeah what did you like about it it was a necessary but if you'd like to show and you like the characters and it was a nice little like add on kind of bonus content for you to get yeah and this is like not even like I mean even if you just saw the end of breaking bad you like okay yeah he drove off into the sunset he probably got a happy ending right now is it that's basically what had yeah no I get it and it probably increases their stream metrics money yeah yeah so if you like breaking bad even I mean it was just a continuation of the story so that's like it's the the whole burden bad thing is a cool story it's like that's Kinda fun that's kind of cool right and so it's like what we can say what's his name died guys that guy's name Jesse acts that died from them we talked about it Robert Forster Robert Forrest then at the end of this year it's like okay we now and he went through no real turmoil in between you know we could have taken it we could have left it spooky spooky Allah we got that from my favorite murder I didn't just make that up dammit yeah I have an original thought when Walt had a Lotta Rocky history can in their near the end talk and bad and so it was bad yeah why yeah yeah just a few days ago after the release said that so he was in he held Jesse escape to a new life basically as the whole point is like yeah you know so we will probably be able to watch I hear Gemini is amazing and it's got really good reviews is going to last so and and then they're like no we talked about it before is because the new Microsoft announcing discard the project scarlet yeah which is the next xbox so the playstation five really is just the counter the following are scary movie spectacular is to day actually which we're recording this the day before we put it out because we live wild and loose these days is Zoe Kravitz was actually just cast in the Matt Reeves the Batman Film She was cast Cat Woman Selina Kyle all right let's move onto this Buca Palooza scary movie I saw all really going to do is we're going to say here to play a commissioner Gordon which Jeffrey Wright Jesse I know you don't know that name but remember Westworld the scientists Guy Jeffrey Wright I think he'll play Gordon Gordon He seems old enough I think I his his acting style in kind the mom crafts with but I think she's with somebody pretty cool to let me look six fifty one yeah I know eh she's having a moment for sure and I think she's doing fantastic she also voiced the role of women in the Lego Batman Movie Younger Chick L. At least as hot yeah it doesn't matter if you see a great she aged very well very very well daughter gene it's pretty cool though she's married to Karl Klusman who is an American actor who I've never heard of Kebir actresses that they're bringing in like Zoe Kravitz here's and big little lies right now she was in Mad Max fury road fantastic beasts and where to find for this one specs specifically actually really liking all the people that they're choosing for the main roles I think they're interesting takes there are a lot of like hot actors AH scientist guy with a a the main character lady who I don't WanNa Ruin Westworld for anybody for the next few movies talk about him yes talking about how cool they are tyrod huckle they are one that we just watched as absolutely my favorite scary movie of all time scream Oh yeah one thousand nine hundred sixty I have a list of dates because I I want to make the distinction about how like in a lot of people agree with this that there's not a lot of good movies coming out now lately and I say that as in like there's not a lot of good slashers coming in you are truly missing out on one of the best TV shows of my childhood and my parents will tell you to this day and they tell anybody the gravity is pretty damn cool you have to be when your dad is Lenny Kravitz in your Momma's Lisa Bonet and your Stepdad is Jason Momoa so is going to play the ridler interesting yeah very interesting I think that that's a that's a pretty good casting like he's got yeah what it is definitely something that was eighties nineties now it's a lot there's a lot of like stuff about ghosts come out or like position song as his ringtone up until my high school career and used to play it for people and he was always like rated isn't it are you scared because that was like that was a lot of spooky links zombies and dead creatures that was a lot of Karai sell tells on the crypt was one of my it just has that really like loved creepshow growing up and like my mom got a DVD at one point and we watched it maybe like I don't know every other week we would just I think he really has the right cadence for I think the Ridler I think that'll be really interesting to see him play that and then also Jeffrey Wright is a negotiation you go yeah Tien looks like they're also planning on having Jona hill our good friend Jonah Hill that's pretty cool too interesting yeah did you know that I did not know that Nigga you're welcome that's weird for Jason Momoa it's kind of weird I feel like he could the movie her death is like terrible but I agree with you it's like she she probably was the big I guess I don't think she that they can get to listen to them how is to run around terrified as soon as the theme music came on for Tales of the gripped my dad had the themes on creepshow on because we thought it was so cool because it because the thing about those as well as like a combined humor and horror which is probably one of my favorite things I love it to her appearance probably not enough Campbell probably got paid the most or maybe David arquette potentially got paid the most really I'm trying to think probably a word for it but I don't know what it is but like they need to define a word if there's not one to what harvey felt like back then versus now tells the corrupt wise and I think it was it was very classic very classic car and it's the same with like creepshow any behind everything is just so high school to me Also I think rose McGowan in it is amazing I love her as well and billy is very much a high school relationship to me and how stupid Matthew Lillard character Stewart is in like his reason I'm like finding very interesting here so I have a again the list of all these hard movies and dates and they should like the posters and stuff and I'm looking at the poster parts of the movie as how well it portrays highschool dynamics lake the relationship between Sidney Prescott I love the idea of one of my other favorite parts about scream at is it has a supernatural element to it but an actress at that point yeah but the is this weird it's weird that Drew Barrymore's on the poster yeah she's number one yeah it's like psychological thrillers are making a comeback with a Lotta like Jordan peels movies a real point of there are a Lotta great actors in that movie like we said I think Courtney Fox was fantastic I love dewey which is playwright David Arquette what am I the typical characters that he plays make him a really good commissioner Gordon you okay yeah so yeah I'm excited I'm excited about all these things sweat I mean that and some like science fiction kind of takes were all very important to my childhood but it's all of it is just so psychologically interesting and based off a real serial killers that yeah it could actually happen the Meta kind of comedic versions of horror films which is why like scream very moves back on the screen so because the assurers ally is that I mean theoretically this could happen yeah they're just these readiness particular film it's just high school all students high school students decide to kill each other yeah absolutely we've seen heard of Lord of lies with when we get to like say before the season yes we're kind of behind on like my entire schedule horror films with US yeah we'll we'll pick it up sixers rates yeah I think with like scream they make it because they you don't know in the beginning sorry we haven't seen scream you've had so much fucking time twenty three years but in scream you don't know that it's two people at first so when it's two people you're actually trying to fathom how this is happening yeah Mike Myers could be out there right yeah and like people that's a reasonable thing there's some crazy fucker fray I think it also goes in with up to brains and probably hit their head as a child Bingo Bango Lhasa Precious family member because they left NATO that's that's actually asa colleen horror and the seventies eighties nineties yeah usher films Yeah I am which is what I ended up growing up on Gorny Cox's in it yeah but it's like a lot of people have faded over time but like they are crazy yeah Predator going out and killing her hunts are killing our best friends and children and loved wine it's a fun story watching nightmare on ELM street I remember the first time watched it when I was a kid and just being absolutely tariffs starts flailing around the room and she's asleep and she ends up on the ceiling and that just like so stuck with me I was just like this is obviously real this is obviously real life she's on the ceiling how is she up there and I think that that's just like just the whole idea behind Freddie Krueger just a true the things that my parents ended up showing me at probably too young age one of them being tales from the crypt if you have a much tales from the grip light like you see that moment when when Johnny Depp is in the bed is really nice for that like that was always a good one and it has to be supernatural which goes into kind of our whole cognitive thought of how could a human being do this it has to be supernatural in some way because there's no and one of my other ones which I don't have on the list for some reason but silence of the lambs I mean that one is so well made and it comes revoked on the ISD me as well. I don't think that weird doesn't I want now I don't even know who got paid the most for screen I've had drew Barrymore's salary was not equivalent truly fucked me up as a child was when I forget what the what the characters name was but she was blonde and she was sleeping with her boyfriend and like she just like say the conjuring which I think is a very well done movie it as well it is one of my all time favorite fucking movies all time I will say there Mrs Voorhees that whole aspect to the story just makes it all that much more interesting because they're people pointed conjuring and stuff like that to like the whole you know they did a really good job tying a bunch of movies together and I really liked that continuity and Kinda they built okay that someone could gut drew barrymore entire up in a tree for her parents to find but it is it actually is and it's just under the my all time favorite movies Bruce Campbell is a loved actor between myself my parents my co worker Ryan Hulo rise and this is one thousand nine hundred six friends was coming out I believe it was coming out so yes she was a big box was big she was a big on right these are all physical beings they're not it's not supernatural at all it was craven who is one of my favorites well I think the ones where it's just a person it's just a person who's kind of gone off their Goddamn rocker difference between that and like Liam Barry Moore's like friends center and I'm like she dived for like five minutes right is she really liked that and in that yeah bill and all that stuff right so yeah the one that reminds me of that as well as the evil dead series because I again that's another one nations actresses really well done the conjuring is one of allies and say it's thirteen so that one of course Super Great Movie Evil Dead Yeah which again brought the humor into it which is so much a part of Bruce Campbell's persona it's taking a role around it so if you can do that that helps a lot if you're gonNA come out real world ray but if you're going to come up with like a monster and you're only going to have to and Friday the thirteenth just Kinda like the whole psyche behind a child and then behind Friday the thirteenth with like the whole Jason Voorhees Volta again but it's a monster it's like a true monster that is out of our fathom of reality I'm thinking back so to the a seven and then we can parallel that into the Friday the thirteenth lawns are some of my favorite for sure along with the Halloween movies I think any of those long runs yeah every time I see them like Oh yeah that's right and Johnny ducats sucked into bed with like TV and then blood shoots out of the bed Oh and I remember this one scene the things conjuring really had down as they didn't give too much away like one movie you know they build up this big world and story like you know all the different stuff they're all the different movies that's a demon yeah it was yeah it was like more of a possession kind of movie yeah so maybe you know whatever whatever it is spiritual supernatural thing we'll supernatural once lake the con right there's always a good thing like ghosts The exorcist right was probably the first real like go st movie or was it a demon which Bruce Campbell had and then transforming it into the actor so that they thrive too I think is really interesting but those were so terrifying to me growing up Campbell we love him but the first two films were just so terrifying and to create like that world of the Neckar Nama con probably what happened but yeah let's films though we can talk about a nightmare nightmare on elm street those are really good tastic on I remember I love I was really good the first time they did it but I think that was part of the reason why newer Har- movies aren't as good as because they're like well we don't have to show you like hours to really build a world around it this the story is going to be you know a flat tire and a few places it's going to be lacking a little bit yeah but you know so I think that's yeah for sure I watched maybe a lot of these movies I was too young and then okay then like another genre of Harvey so we can talk about quickly here to ghosts the movie where they have the the dolls I don't like dolls they freak me the fuck out and to have this movie dead silence straight up ghost that's go see bullshit and it's scary another one what's Oh dead silent dead silence time period based horror and spooky doll's I'm GonNa Fuck I'm GonNA get fucked up I'm not going to be able to sleep at night because I cannot stand that I back John Q. is a friend Adam looks just like John cusack but blonde fourteen eight the one with Samuel Jackson in it psychological thing right which I think was really important like people want to be really clever with their horror realized I was derailing guess again I was like let me get back let me get back to work that is like I real hard with all these motherfucking dolls being possessed and this crazy old lady you give me period it just it just affects me up I can't even think about it right now I'm like I'm genuinely I'm the one one I can think of to third is okay the fourth is good for they were bringing back in its more modern but scream scream assist and we watch like chucky another one on this listen I just saw and I was like Israeli at the Blair witch project Oh yeah right so and that was actually one of the to does something where you're like so who is it 'cause they already got the fucking kill that one for sure is like a ovation exactly and scream number scream to is an amazing movie just as great as the I I think that the Lueneburg those movies for example to Segue to another one right love all those movies they've they're all super well they're super great and yet so it's just so insane to me again love horror and comedy and so that and then what was the TV show asked ash versus the rush for is an I think it's also it's one of those just perfect scream like perfect sequels because you don't get perfect sequels in horror films often it's usually like it's just not as great and it's still like fast pace like scream I scream it's witty and scary like the first and they look out in the body's gone I was like that sorta like supernatural thing yeah so they come from I think is always really interesting and like Halloween like I'm trying to remember the name it was the one of the hotel room as like a number oh I'm the one with John cusack in it I can't remember who's in it should like junkies a and I'm actually listening to the events right now and they talked about how one of their main arcs is based on kind of the unknown that you get like you do except for aliens alien is one of my all time favorite films just in general because I mean Ellen Ripley the fact that you don't know who it is in any of the films like you don't know what's going on I mean in the second stream the second hiding the alien because you don't know what's going on especially in in alien you don't know what is happening to these people you don't know where it's coming from the thing it's fantastic so yeah I just think scream best series of Harlem's ever near fight me an and just so many evil spirits and things of that journal Nature and then to take it and put that into army of darkness uh-huh silent killer yeah yeah like just correct creeps around you know you never see him running really right that's how Jesse you push them out the window ends where where I think they're they're looking down at like sonar kind of thing that's telling them we're movement is happening like maybe we're body heat is coming from and they're like just start saying there's like hundreds of them and hundreds of them and like you just cannot fathom how this is happening like the darkness it's credited
"This is ABC assode, two thousand, eighty, nine of the daily meditation. podcast I'm Mary Medically. And I honor you for being right where you are whether you are seated, getting ready to meditate, or you're going about your day, you listen to this. It's all good. You are in the right place. And you are going through your slowdown journey honoring yourself sometimes it can take a little while to begin to feel stillness to the point where you actually want to sit down to meditate I know for myself. I didn't really want to sit down and meditate. Until I had begun to slow down with. Sipping tea when I lived in Japan for five years and I, worked for a company there, and we would have about three t breaks throughout the day and. My Fellow Co workers. I was the only foreigner there would sit down and just really relaxed. They wouldn't talk or chat, they would. Sit Down and meditate and sip the tea, and they wouldn't be scrolling through their phones, really just slowing down and connecting to their inner stillness and. After I started to do this for a while. Then I started to want more, but it really took me some time to experience. What stillness felt like in my body? You might be noticing that you are becoming more and more familiar with stillness. while. We're going through this pandemic right now because you're likely spending a little more time alone or in one place. Going around so many people as you normally did pre pandemic, and so you may begin to notice your stillness even more. So all week long you have been exploring ways to tap into your inner stillness. This is the final episode of our series. We've been exploring. And I'm excited to share tomorrow's brand new series with you but before. You do that, let's put some closure on your week. As I record this. It's a Saturday. Of course. You can listen to these episodes any day. They don't follow any particular sequence except that. Each episode is focused on the week's thing. So as I record this. If you're following along with me, you maybe on the weekend, I hope that you're able to take a little more time to honor yourself and to sit in stillness, and this is going to really allow you to go a little more deeply with the different meditation techniques you've explored. So we do this in the final episode of every series. As you sit down and began to calm your mind and body. Just notice where you may be holding stress in your body. and. You might notice what could have triggered that stress. Become aware of it. And then see if you can use your breath to calm this tightness tense area down. As you, give yourself a nice deep inhale through your nose dry, your breath, inward and upward to the point between your eyebrows. This is referred to as your spiritual lie in Yoga and meditation. It's where your prefrontal lobes are located. This is the most sophisticated part of your brain that is activated as you meditate. Notice. How your breath moves through you. Cool refreshing air as you inhale. And as you exhale. Tension and toxins. Straighten your spine and keep your eyes closed. And relaxed. Gently elevated upward. Now as you begin to reflect over your week, think about times when you felt a sense of inner stillness. And peace. Thinking about what? Instigated that piece did you do something to create it? Did you plan for it and make it happen? Or. Did it just kind of happen organically with you? Maybe you're tuned to creating still miss this week, and so you intuitively sought it out. Think about. Your best moments of stillness this week. Liberate your south. This is a big win. You're doing important work. Now. Think about the week and notice the time that were. Where you couldn't quite. Capture your stillness. You couldn't quite into it. and. Just notice this judgment. Just awareness. An honor yourself for becoming aware of your challenges. Think about the situation where you in a hurry. Were you rushed? So you just couldn't really gather yourself or your thoughts. Or were you with someone or in a situation that was. A little toxic to you. Were you listening to some news and it made you feel agitated. Jazz become aware of when it was difficult. Very nice. Now allow yourself to sink a little deeper into your inner stone his. You are worth it. This is your reward. All you've been doing for yourself. Honor yourself exactly where you are, you are, so we're slowing down for.

CEO and Co founder of Clutter Clutter is a full service moving and storage company using technology to easily manage the pickup pick-up storage. And Retrieval of Customs. Listen to learn more about how he selected this market in his advice for building a great company mission. Daily is creative. I our team at Michigan Dot. Org We are live okay. Rem Amir CEO Co-founder of clutter today permission daily welcomed. The show. Thank you I appreciate you guys. Having mission audience. We like to think that we're really well informed of what's happening in the world of tech but we can't say that we know everybody so Ra. Can you start us off by giving us a quick rundown of what is clutter and where you guys. Specialize in sure so clutter is an on demand storage solution available in a thousand cities throughout the US and what we do is help consumers get got through high stress high anxiety life events so one in nine Americans go through death that divorce marriage birth in the family and they need to store store their belongings and what we do. We provide them with the most convenient and affordable solution in the marketplace. We have professional national movers. That we employ that will come into your home. You'll point out the items that you WanNa put into storage these. Movers will photograph and catalog. Those items so that six months on six years from now. You don't forget that you have that golf back with us. Then they'll also give you a real time onsite quote for how much your monthly storage rate is going to be and then mm using packing materials that we bring to your home. Our movers will pack your belongings so that they're protected during transport and then using our fleet. The trucks we will safely transfer your items to one of our secure storage facilities and once it's in one of our storage facilities. You can go declutter Dot Com and you get beautiful photo catalog of everything that you have in storage and you're one click away from having that golf back. Returned back to your doorstep within forty eight hours or all of your belongings returned back to your doorstep within forty eight hours as someone who has moved before. This sounds amazing because I actually think I'll never move again just just because I hate moving so much. Yes it's incredibly inconvenient move. You're moving story of stuff. So is that curiously. Is that where you got the inspiration for this idea like to hear how to originated. Where did you hate moving or was it something else that you saw like an opportunity? Try taking you back to the genesis of clutter. I've always been very lazy. Laziness using his pays off for a better way to do something. Exactly you know if forced innovation in this case I was moving back from San Francisco to La and Talking to my co-founder about starting a business. And you know two very different reasons. We both happened to kind of start complaining about moving and storage and it's a it was about just before two thousand fifteen when we discover the problem and And you know we are determined to help consumers I providing them with more convenience Alicia Gotcha now so here you are. You're you found this problem. You've found the inconvenience did. Did you immediately see an opportunity before I go too far a little bit about your background for our guests for our listeners. It looks like your background. Quite a bit of a entrepreneurship worship in your career Looks like he's been part of starting a couple of different businesses. Did you immediately kinda like eyes light up. See like this was going to be the opportunity or tell me about how that I like. That real moment Sounds struggling to pack up San Francisco head. La Was it immediate or was. Did it take a little time to develop that idea. Sure so I had worked for two who other startups that other founders had co founded a company called Shop Zillah in another company called Laura my bills both of which were successful I then went on to co Oh found my own venture backed startup and ad network in Santa Monica called Gum Gum. That was successful as well and then subsequently another venture backed startup called pocket change change. That wasn't successful in so clutter was really my fifth opportunity being a part of a startup whether I co-founded myself for joined someone else's team and I had a long laundry list of things that I knew I wanted to check off before investing. You know frankly speaking the rest of my life and two x business center and it was very obvious to many from the beginning that clutter check awful things and that was what was so exciting about it. If I look back on my career a lot of the stars I've been part of Joe started myself. Did Not check off enough of those boxes. That's amazing what what were some of those things that you're looking at check off. One of them was actually could I and do I want to spend the rest of my life pursuing this opportunity. I think that's ultimately really important to go through. That thought exercise because if you start a company looking to flip it in three to five years I can promise Thomas you the odds are incredibly stacked against you and you'll most likely fail and with clutter is all a business opportunity that was personally fulfilling saying that I knew would keep me engaged for decades. Would other check boxes re looking for well. One of the lessons I learned the hard way throughout the years was the size of the market is ultimately the most important thing like our time on this earth is finite and we have an opportunity cost to that time. And so. If you're an ambitious entrepeneurship like I am. You should really think through whether you're investing your time wisely and I wanted to make sure that I was building a product or a solution that would impact as many lives as possible positively and there are a lot of very lucrative business opportunities that you can pursue. Oh that don't ask don't necessarily check off that box but when you can provide a service that impacts one in nine Americans lives positively and those one in nine Americans need or service not for months not for years but decades which is typically how long stores their stuff for then. You really have an opportunity to do that as a fascinating style. You just dropped one in nine. People he said are using some some type of long term storage. Yeah longterm storage our or just storage in general is a forty billion dollar year market in the US alone. No that's fascinating make space was also on the show and they kind of gave us some interesting storage stats. That's about how fragmented the industry is. Did you know that going in there or did you do some homework. That let you know like okay. There's no dominant market player like multiple new players in the space with with clutter. Like I said I had a framework for evaluating the opportunity and part of that framework was I really wanted to approach it like a business school student. What and do all of my market research I and outline some sort of plan for the first two years and so yes? I very much knew that it was a fragmented market. I I knew is a big market. I knew as a lucrative market I knew who the competitors were etc.. I really did might due diligence before starting clutter and it's paid off dividends. That's fascinating because now I wanNA bring it back to what you originally said that it had to be something that you would want to spend the rest of your life on now. I mean most people don't love storage but what Major. I'm assuming you didn't either Rye. Judging from some of the businesses that you started beforehand so what made it sailing okay. Storage is a place that I can play. Well some of the other things that I wanted to check off or you no one. I wanted to build something that was consumer facing. There are a number of different types of CEO's their sales leaders marketing leaders. I'm a product leader and so the product later it's incredibly important that have a relationship with the consumer and secondly I was comfortable investing the rest so my life into this the opportunity because I knew that as the company scaled more and more challenges present themselves because of the fact that we're not not purely a software business technology company that operates online as well as in the real world and as a product leader. You Never WanNa get bored what you want this kind of constant stream of challenges and so I just knew from the onset that that was going to be the case so when you say your product leader were you mostly thinking about about the experience of storage typically is. I'll I'll really will. I know before technology right. It's me going to let's say less than desirable place. Possibly the right opening up a chain link fence cameras barbed wires everywhere cameras on you. Because I know this I used to Ron Garage door my motorcycle right. No one's there to help you. If they are there to help you pretty unfriendly all stay as the common thing right so as a product you know how do you change. That side of the product is. Is that what you got the idea. Well what if we control cert- like because you know that's how the products part the two you mentioned. Your drivers will come drive. You're gonNA pack my things I'll it's I'm a surfer so let's say Mr Ford's right there. These are fragile. BELOVED ITEMS FOR ME I. I don't have space is a product person. How do you think about the interaction from the online experience to the mobile experience to the actual you know person from clutter come into my house? Grabbing happened my stuff and taking it. Well what blew my mind five to six years ago. was that this very big. Forty billion dollar. A year market was built because consumers ars were going through high stress high anxiety left life events but yet the incumbents that built this industry almost didn't even acknowledge that and really delivered a self service product to consumers which is ultimately beliefs convenient thing. You can do right if you ask. You will do all the work themselves when they're going through. High Stress Stress is a life event that aren't you ultimately just increasing their stress levels. I would say moving is like one of the most stress Ask Any kid the worst day of college. It's probably moving eh right men and move out exactly and so we asked ourselves will. How do we connect the convenience but at the same price and our solution back then which is still bill what we're implementing today is if you let us store your stuff wherever we want meaning we can transport it to anyone? Anyone of are safe and secure storage facilities. They can be inside the city or they could be outside the city. Then we can work really hard to expand our storage margins and in exchange will take those higher storage margins and will reinvest you the customer. And we'll give you moving and packing and materials and we'll give you an on-demand on-demand solution where you can ask for your items back whenever you want. That was the key to cracking this very large opportunity. So you're saying that I'm actually not going to see a material difference in price between me packing up my stuff myself and you You clutter to get my stuff. No it's true parody. So how did you make make that happen. I mean that seems that seems like insurmountable coming where it was some of the things. We're focused on. Tell me how you figured out that this was even possible. I'd love to hear kind of like the Genesis of this idea. It's it's really interesting. Well it's definitely not easy. It's a big liability. Once you take my fragile items like you owe me back these. I mean yeah I mean there's there's a you know. We often referred our business as an engine with a lot of moving parts and so as a business where responsible for paying for materials were responsible for paying hang for the Labor that moves impact and transports your items. Were responsible for paying for the truck. Were responsible for paying for the warehouses where we store your items for damage edge claims or just in general. You know customer experience claims that may result from our ability to deliver service. How we're able to cover all of these? It costs so that you the consumer king get ten x value price parity is very much by arbitraging real estate. Like I said earlier you know so. More and more people are moving into city centres which means the land inside of cities is becoming more and more expensive and so our entire hypothesis. It was that if you let us store your stuff outside of the city where land is cheaper and it's more plentiful than we probably have the march chins to eat all of these costs and to give you ten x they experience and convenience at price parity and five years into the business. We've proven that the hypothesis was correct. But you're right. It's incredibly difficult running. This real world supply chain if you think about it our closest analogue. It's not public storage. The incumbent the elephant in the room that we're trying to disrupt their just a real estate holding company. They don't do anything for you. Our closest in an easily more offense put a fence and some orange paint. Our closest analogue is Amazon. You know we're consumer facing just like Amazon as we're technology company just like Amazon as we run a real world supply chain people trucks warehouses. It is a challenging Ellen ging business and one that keeps US excited to go to work everyday so you mentioned now that you're thousand cities yes so when you started. How many cities did you operate in? I'm assuming one but when we started I think we only serviced West L. A. and only part of it even sure that's considered a city but the zip code or something like we started out by servicing a small collection of ZIP codes. What we found was our model really lended itself to Gio expansion? Oh you build a warehouse and you can actually service a very large radius out of that warehouse whereas when public storage builds a self storage facility. They they on average conserves maybe three to four miles in every direction when we build a warehouse. Our warehouses can typically service up to seventy miles in every direction and so. That's just a massive competitive advantage that we have some big radius. That's a very big media. It is especially if you're new. Densely populated area like Was East la or West La when we started it was in west La and we didn't have our own warehouse to be clear but now for example we have of very very large warehouses in southern California in the Fontana and Ontario area that service everything from Santa Barbara Barbara Down to San Diego for everything from Santa Monica Easter Palm Springs. When you were first going on starting up were you the one in their packing up the backing up? The good. My co-founder Brian. That's super power. He was the one going into customers homes in getting them to trust. Well that's good in about when it comes to finding a good partner. So you mentioned your product i. It sounds like Brian had more like the people skills or could create that trusted adviser type relationship shut were. Hey I'm GonNa take your most beloved belongings and I gotta ask. Did you tell them your address of your warehouse like how do we flip. Flopped on that a lot. We went back and forth on whether we should share the address because ultimately you know I understand why the consumer wants to know the address of the facility where belongings are going to but it's not in their best interest from from a security standpoint. We don't want people knowing where storage facilities are and so now we no longer share the address but throughout out history. There have been times when we did you. Brian worked together before or did you kind of meet along the way during the idea genesis that has discovered you had good. I guess personality and skill fits that would complement each other. How did you go about choosing each other? I've always had co founders in every venture. I've started. I think it's important to have someone in the early days that that provides you with a counterbalance when you're happy and their Saudi can make them happy when you're sad and they're happy can make you happy because ultimately you know okay. Startups are roller coaster. Ride and you're GONNA go through those swings and I always recommend that you look for a co-founder that's very complimentary to you. You know if you're an engineer you you should look for technical co founder. Engineers should probably look for a business partner or or product person. It's a partner with and Brian and I have been friends for a decade before starting clutter and so we very much knew each other strengths and weaknesses and it made sense to start this business together so taking in yourself. So now you Ryan. You're building the product. Your I'm assuming you're designing the landing pages are however you're getting customers management systems Ryan's packing orders taking taking them to the To the warehouse win. Did you know like what was the moment where you looked at your was it financially or just based on customer testimonials that you're like okay. We're almost something. Customers actually legitimately my love this service compared to the alternative right because I read a I can't quoted right now but someone said like if you're not materially better than the next best alternative as you might as well just fold up right now. There's no point starting up. I didn't know win. was that moment. Where like wow we have something? We reached about seventy customers and both Ryan and I were still part-time really pursuing this opportunity. More as aren't Di Project and I remember. We went to dinner one night and we had a conversation about whether we wanted to invest two hundred and ten percent of our respective times into the venture and ultimately it came down to one question. It wasn't are these customers profitable. It wasn't can we get more customers costumers. It was just do this. Seventy customers that we have love the product or like the product and without hesitation. We knew the answer. They loved the product because as we would get feedback from them all the time and when I set the Brian was I've worked my whole life on a number of businesses. And I can tell you. It's incredibly difficult. The bill something that people love. We should both go fulltime on this and really go for and the moment. We decided that it became a rocket ship. Where's a rocket ship me? I mean I don't know how much she can disclose but like how did you know that. Why would you describe as a rocket ship where you like adding customers every day? Like what was it like. I think there are a number of ways you can kind of Qualify progress a rocket ship. You know whether you're getting a lot of customers every month or you're hiring a lot of people doc for us it was It was everything. It's only been five years and in five years. We have krone the team to north of you know eleven twelve hundred people. These are employees. We service a a third of the US across a thousand cities. We have hundreds of trucks million square footage of warehouse space tens of thousands of costumers millions of items in our warehouses. And what that means is every month is bigger. So that's what that's what a rocket ship is when you start art every month needs to be bigger and if you have a month or two or three that are flat. There's something really wrong because in the early days he's everything should be up into the right. That's awesome so I take it then when you're during that time facing I guess every every month has hit your those criteria to the right right. Yeah and if it isn't you take a real hard look and you try to solve the problem pretty quickly no doubt so how about. I wonder if you could take me to the point where you decided to go like obviously raise money right famously. It's on record that Softbank invested two hundred million in declutter was was that the catalyst meeting every month. You're having being a bigger and better or month so you just need to raise capital. So you're saying hey listen. We need warehouses. We need trucks. We need more people. These are numbers. Let's go get money. Let's not grow organically Tell me take me to the decision process there. Did you think you could do it organic or did you feel like we just wanted to explode into the right like you suggested. Some businesses benefit from scale effects. Some businesses benefit from network effects are business benefits from both and so the more volume that goes through our supply. Chain not only do Our margins improve as a business but our customer experience improves as well to service that ever increasing volume you need a lot of capital with a business like ours and it was really clear to me in the early days that this was going to be a capital intensive business right which is why the series a we partnered with sequoia ventures and they ladder series. A I was excited to work with them because I knew they were the most famous investment firm in the world and their social validation Chan of us as a team and our opportunity would help us raise additional capital for years years to come and that proved to be true because four years later we made a lot of progress and Softbank was interested in an investing sorry Softbank's Vision Fund and now across five years. We've raised three hundred million in equity capital to build build all of this infrastructure but ultimately is making consumers lives more convenient all of these warehouses. These trucks employing not only are engineers hourly team members which most companies don't do that. We do so that we can really deliver our service at scale reliably. Yeah so curious. This is obviously your big moment in time right like you suggested over twelve hundred employees a third of the US cities hundreds of trucks the warehouses everywhere. When you sit back and look at I guess the size of business clutter has built? Is that we envisioned from the very beginning or did you one of the things where we saw like. I could be this big but now here you are like Oh we're just getting started. Take me through what your thought processes in regards to like scaling. It meet your expectations. And where do you see the future for clutter. Were about to move into a new. HQ and are real safe broker. That's helping US secure. That new office space has been working with us from the very beginning and he loves the other day his client but that aside he was He was joking. The other day he said Ari. I don't know if you remember but the first day I met you you you said that this was going to be really really big and that I should pay attention to you guys and it's true. I knew from day one. This was going to be one of the world's largest companies one day I didn't quite understand what the slope of the curve was going to be. Whether it was going to grow really quickly quickly and then you know Kinda taper off or more you know steady up into the right but I knew it would never stop growing and I knew that because when one in nine Americans use a product or service and they use it for multiple decades. What they're really telling you is that the opportunity is such that you can build infrastructure for society right you become a part of the fabric of their lives if they're using you every day for years and if you look back at time the companies that have created the most value are the ones that have created infrastructure? Very interesting point of thank you Kinda hit the nail on the head a little bit there or something very similar with jeopardy's always talks but right instead of thinking what new new things are going to happen. What is not going to change in the next ten years? Oh yes interesting. I've never heard him say that. But that's exactly right right in the first half of my career was built around. You know what is going to change and it was very painful because as you can imagine it's very hard to get that right. The second half of my life was very much focused on what's not going to change and I've had a lot more success in making that transition you know so you're obviously in a very different place now like are you still product focused or you. More people focused obviously obviously working organization of twelve hundred. People is a lot different than you know you and your co founder building applications to store things. What is your daily responsibilities? Look like now. How do you maintain I guess this that vision so that your team members can align with you in in work with you towards a clubs goals while what I tell? Every leader at clutter is that we we all share three common responsibilities. First and foremost it's team building. You have to understand what greytown looks like. And you'd have to be able to recruit it. Secondly team management you have to execute performance management to keep the quality of our team and our resulting output high and thirdly you have to be a culture advocate what our core values what are our leadership principles goals when we leave the room. Do you represent them while on your own. Then lastly your domain matters but your domain specific to you every leader leader. has these first three kind of common common responsibilities and so people find this hard to believe that. Look from from the outside in but I spent over half of my time recruiting and ultimately. I think that's most important because it's the top of the funnel and if you find find great people and you have strong culture they will be successful and therefore you will be successful and your customers will have a great experience and so on and so John and so while I may product leader and I think about strategy and I think about product development excetera it actually only represents a minority already percentage of my mind share. Most of my time is very much focused on people and anyone at clutter with support that so you you made a comment. I WANNA follow up on you send the you know you specifically look for what you said identified. What does great talent look like in your world? What does that mean does it mean they? They have to have skills. Is it mean it's attitude is something that's indescribable. What is it you and your leaders are looking for for others to join clutter? You need to have have strong communication skills. We overemphasize for your communication skills because ultimately we are not only a hyper cross functional organization in that we need marketing. We need product. We need operations. We Customer Carrick Satra. But we're also a multi regional business and so you can imagine when you're sending in an email to someone across the country jumping on zoom in your poor communicator. That's just GonNa it'd be highly ineffective secondly your work ethic has to be high. That doesn't mean we need you to spend one hundred ten hours a week or king at clutter. We actually have very normal hours. But when you're here between eight thirty six thirty you have to be focused you have to reproductive. Don't spend all your time at the water cooler. And then lastly you have to be a systems thinker thinker and what that means to us very specifically is. Can you identify the problem on your own. Can you idiot solutions. Can you execute the solutions. It's can you be intellectually honest about whether you're execution created net positive or net negative value for the organization. If you can do those three things things we care much less about. What you're domain is whether you have a background bat domain if you have one? It's the Cherry topic. It's wonderful but we're also comfortable putting someone into a marketing role that's ever been in a marketing role if they have those three qualities. Yeah that's fascinating they said that It's AH lines very similar In regards to what we're looking for. I mean granted missions. A much smaller organization clutter is but I've always in a think. This is exactly what you're saying. which is I'd rather someone see a problem in attempt to solve it and report back? This is why didn't work than someone who said it's not my problem. Yeah or someone who it doesn't bother to update the organization about whether their solution worked or not because it didn't work and they don't want anyone to now like that's just horrible Fabbri on all around. We'd much rather they're not something didn't work. What ruled that attitude? I guess play and clutter in your growth you have do you have any like I guess. Stories anecdotal stories. That said Hey. This was the problem. RT member figured it out. It solved this many hours of labor. We customers this much happier anything like that. For example retention is really important in our business as you can imagine having having customers continue to keep their stuff in storage helps our economics which ultimately helps us keep everyone employed and and what we saw was we had some new hires look at our retention data and use data science to start to you parse it into different cohorts and there was very much behavior that was unique to each cohort and you could tie that behavior to signals higher up in the funnel for example. If someone's stores a mattress F- US. They're less likely only to store their stuff for as long as someone who stores only boxes what something like. That seems really trivial. Very simple but it's an importing data point to have because then we can play with pricing and ultimately figure out how to give consumers the most value at the lowest prices possible. And that's just one example of two things one what we're talking about. Which is people having hypotheses testing those hypotheses Kasese and then sharing results at the organization? But to that we're a technology company at our core and that's ultimately what's required to make this really hairy beasts work. How do you guys envision the future do you see people owning more things? Do you think storage will ever like storage habits. You see it changing changing. I know that as we go towards more digital goods for example. There's obviously less things we got the Murray condos Concepts out there at UC storage changing changing fundamentally in the next ten years or do you think it's stay relatively the same but clear is going to be just adding services like how do you think how vision I guess the world in the next ten years I genuinely believe more of the world will store their belongings. But they'll each store less and what I mean by. That is two things one I am confident infinite. More of the world will store their belongings because more of the world is moving into metropolitan cities today. Fifty five percent of the world's population lives in big cities in the next decade or two. That's going to go to seventy seventy five percent. What that means is there's less stay someone? There's less space you need on demand storage solution secondly get Louis. It's important to understand what people store. They store three types of things. Frankly they start junk. I've seen that from Roma storage wars right when they by the by the locker and they opened up. It's just nothing there secondly they store stuff has asset value are fine wine etc stuff. That's going to appreciate you. Don't WanNa throw that stuff away that's not junk. And then thirdly they store items that they have an emotional attachment to items that we internally call memories time machines into the past as we move more and more into cities and we have less and less space more of us are going to store our stuff but what I do think is going to happen is. We're going to store less junk. Which is why we as a business one offer one day disposal Zyl as a service one click disposal? Imagine that how convenient that would be. But you're still going to want to store your stuff to have value and the question is how do you try value from these items have asset value while the storage will also. Why one day we want to help you sell your stuff for rent your stuff or maybe even in borrow against your stuff with just one click imagine you have a car and storage or a hundred thousand dollar painting and you need a thousand dollars or are you just want to rent it to someone? 'cause you'd rather have income from that asset. We can help you with that and then your memories are never going to go away and we will help you store them for as long as you want to keep them all in all you'll end up either storing less or driving more value from what you put into historic but because we're all moving into cities more of us are just going to need your second hypothesis of becoming away to sell my assets. Because I know exactly what you're talking about like my uncle stored his Mustang. He always said he was gonNA restore it. He just never did. He kept it in storage for decades. He never wanted to let go of it but if he had a system where and when the day came you finally one was willing to liquidate it. He then had to find a buyer he of course I could meet them in. Search like it was it was it was a nightmare. I mean imagine if you know imagine if Ebay and Fedex had a baby that's what we can do for consumers we can deliver something consumers that's ten times more convenient than Ebay if you have your skis in our storage facility and for whatever reason you no longer want to ski we we already have a picture of your skis. You know all we gotta do is listed in a marketplace. Have wait for someone to buy it. And then we'll actually do the fulfilment for you you you don't have to do anything no more trips to Fedex Home Depot. That's why you're taking because you need to build the infrastructure to say like real time inventory across you said thousand plus. Warehouses is awesome. Yeah this is really a platform that we built a platform that's made up of great people A lot of processes Sassi's a lot of products and ultimately storage is very simply the first application on this platform but we see a number of applications being launched on this platform over the next few years. That's phenomenal all right. Thanks for sharing your vision for the future of storage for everyone listening. You might think it's boring business. Its current state it may be but with clouds doing pretty exceptional optional. Hypotheses you have for the future are quite interesting we of course would love to see how plays out over the next few years. I appreciate the next time.
