"To a point where conservatives want conservatives want to move forward but keep the keep traditions alive in what used to work should still work so get that point what do liberals want because it seems to me like they want to tear the world down and rebuild. It is it. Is it mike my accurate on that. I don't really know. I think that focus a little more on progressive. I guess versus liberal. Like i think that you know to be honest. I'm not really sure. What the differences but But progressives that seems to be like the main voice in the media in like in government right now what progressive want is a utopia right I don't see it as a utopia But what they want is for everyone to be equal. Which i think is a mistake. Everyone to be equal. Guess in the feminist sons but like also in the mark suspense The reason i reject that is because you can't have a utopia on earth right Never exist you have to take human You would have to take the human out of the human tablet utopia right so imperative. This would have to go away. The idea that you couldn't that somebody put produces more than somebody else's oppressor you'd have to take that away yes So it's not gonna work. You never will work and hasn't worked but let's get back to liberal progressive because i would consider myself a liberal way that i think you should be able to do whatever you wanna do at any time that you wanted to do it just as long as you don't hurt anybody else like that's how i feel. I think that's very liberal. What do you think yeah. i think. That's stifling liberal standpoint so okay so progressives progressives utopia where you in that boat redo. Did you think that that was a possibility when you were when you were learning or coming being exposed to that kind of idea. Yeah i definitely. I definitely thought that. I always thought about you. Know what's the end goal of feminism. And then i thought the same thing about veganism to you. Know what's the end goal And you know the goal i guess. veganism is a little bit. Clear feminism Because i started thinking okay. We'll if we achieve this than what are we going to complain about right because the law of what. Feminism is just pointing out. What's wrong not pointing out. What's right or what you could do to make things right. It's basically just Eliminating trying to eliminate all the things that you see wrong and hopefully that'll create a utopia but that's impossible so what would have feminist vegan. Utopia look.

I typically didn't have problems with be twelve which is which is good to know it was. It was always the iron. That could be a problem for me. but yet the business smart supplement to take if you are again so you weren't able to eat your fourteen pounds of spinach that you need to get your iron intake. Yeah pretty much. I researched a lawn into I think it's hemi mature it's h. e. iron on which is basically ironed from animals. And when you research into it. We absorb ir from beef from animals a lot more effectively than iron from spinach so it doesn't really matter. That spinach has a lot of iron and i love spinach but doesn't work really the i i.

"Other than being themselves why are they. The ones pushing woke feminist agenda. Yeah that's a great question And i definitely. I mean i don't know the stats behind that. But i i definitely noticed that in my experience. So for me personally I pretty much faced. No adversity. Until i was about maybe twelve years old And i think part of the problem with that is that once you start to face adversity. I don't really know how to handle it. And basically anytime. I would fail experienced failure in my life and i didn't like it. I needed a reason to explain it. and basically being a victim because of who. I am something that i can't change about myself. was a perfect explanation for any failure that i had anything that i could fall back on In just to add to that another huge part of it is that young girls are really favor in the school system In my experience. I was an absolute just angel in elementary school. Just succeeded at everything did so well in school and you know had teachers just staying the all these things about me like. Oh she's gonna she's gonna be that you know she's gonna do this do that rate I'm sure it was great. But i think there was just way too much way too much height. There's just so much support for girls in the way that girls are in the school system is in my opinion. It's kind of directed towards like towards girls like that so obviously i was going to have success. Wow so that's interesting perspective. You're saying that as you were coming up through elementary school. No no double back real quick. You said you haven't you didn't face any any problems to twelve right and then you say that when you were in elementary school you were a perfect angel. You did everything your teachers thought that the only there's no ceiling for your success you. We're gonna go as high as you wanted to go right. So where do those to meet the. Where did you become where the problem started. Coming in at the age of twelve was it. Because you weren't union. Think maybe reliving living up to those expectations or what was it. Yeah i mean that's definitely part of it. That actually came a little bit later. On the reason i say up to twelve is that i started to experience. A lot of i guess like chronic illness would be the right way to put it on. I dealt with a lot of health problems that i'm still dealing with today. But that's kind of where. I started to get into trouble right. I started dealing with these health problems. And then you know i needed. I guess maybe needed something to blame. If you don't mind me asking re dealing with you don't have to answer. I'm just asking yeah. No that's a that's okay. I'll answer The main two were chronic fatigue and acne. Okay i was hit really hard by acne. Like what i hit. Puberty and i Chronic fatigue as well. It was kind of like you know you hear of invisible invisible ellis..

"Lower carbon footprint and increase production absolutely. And so we'll always continue to look at oil and gas opportunities down my avenue. Investment in blue wear which is focused. On what most people think exploration but i'm like oil and gas is not away number. One and people are reducing their exploration budgets. But it's much cheaper to find oil than it is to buy existing reserves If you can if you're good at it so i'm like well. Everyone's going away from expiration. I think it's great bad because explication if you can use digital technologies to find reserves bam. That's a huge huge. Increase your value of your company. So i make bats an expiration because i believe that technology digital technology is completely changing the game there. Yeah that's a good point. It's kind of like you know you go into this manufacturing mindset of shale and the everyone just kind of you know expiration just kind of bastardize and you don't take all these new technologies and apply it to that process. I'm sure there's a ton of opportunities. One of the best stories energy tech ever. Was that one company that we talked by. Remember the name of it. But it was like thousands of the guy from worked nasr's jpl and he got investment from The newfield energy ceo and a bunch of other people but the jets. Yeah so you're like four hundred eighty million in multibillion dollar valuation oiling gas experience and he bought these these decommissioned russian jets and was essentially saying that he was gonna fly over basins and with technology. Be able to detect the reservoirs right and turns out the whole thing which was like just a scam essentially so but we do have the technology to apply and I just think that it's interesting that everyone's kind of turned their back on just conventional exploration. But if you apply some technology. I'm sure there's a lot of low hanging fruit there to extract value. Yeah i mean data you know again. We've said this a million times. But i think in twenty eleventh one of my companies coined. Data's the new oil. Yeah two thousand eleven. By the way i hear i read it now like well. That's been we've said. I love tree.

Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President

"I agree I think. Being, intentional about the gratitude, that's what I heard. You say is the gratitude be slowing down? And just being thankful. I've said this on the show many times. But for me it when I started at multiple attempts like you, we were talking about the beginning of the podcast. He No. Okay. I'm changing my life tomorrow I'm going to be this guy and I tried to do too much and I it was overwhelming. And after a couple of failed attempts on that, then I started just just GonNa start with kind of out to the universal gratitude. That my feet can hit the floor. You know what I mean. I. CAN STAND UP I'm still breathing I got my health Look at that my my. House overhead I got my my pets right to everything's everybody's good. Everybody's happy and you know he's going to build upon it and you're right. It does change. I think if you start that way, it does change. It does change how you start the or the rest of the day in my opinion. As opposed to worrying about what my to dos looks like. You know I would absolutely agree and I think you know 'cause I was always the guy and I'm still in many ways the guy who's A crush, your goal today and. Get things done at Cetera et cetera disciplined and work. Those things are extremely important But what's been really interesting for me is Kind of looking back at especially like even talking to you looking back it Kinda the early speaking Gig and the early tours like I'd be doing four or five schools week right and then be home for two or three days, and then gone and doing that again, and it's like today I would never do that. No Way. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. It's just like and yeah. Okay. So it's the funniest great. You're you're you know reaching all of these students and staff members and like. Everything's going up right and that's a good thing. And I learned a lot but I was also physically exhausted. I was in a lot of time zone you know was dealing with a lot of health stuff too because you know you're not sleeping enough. You're not eating right? You're not eating enough of the right thing I mean all these things today I don't do nearly the number of speaking's used to and that was intentional. Then of course, twenty twenty happened like okay. Well, what a great opportunity to really just re address how the entire business is going to look what am I do because I can get on tiktok And I can you know post a one minute video and? You know reach US ten million people. I can't do that in a high school gym or. You know on a stage somewhere like it doesn't work like that. So it's like what? What is the best route? What where do I need to go allows it's Slowing. Down allowed me Kinda reassess little that looks like well. While I think that's that's the idea behind twenty twenty right in his crazies. This year is certainly not over but these last seven months certainly in as much as I hate to see stuff that's happened. I do try to remind myself that there are opportunities inside this. Can have nuttiness I and I think that's right. Stay positive throughout the seven months there have been moments when I've I'm not positive but I think for the most part if I intentionally look bagging like. Remind myself that this too shall pass and that there are opportunities hidden within this kind of. Chaotic pivot that's happening to everybody and I don't know how how have you been doing with? How does it resonate with what I just said I'm right there with you like for me I try to really look at the whole picture. Are there things that I absolutely disliked about? Twenty twenty and and kind of things that the challenges we face with absolutely has afforded a lot of really great things as well as lutely it has and you know you I. Love It. When when individuals use the phrase, this too shall pass because. Prior to this, you know a lot of people will say, Oh you know I just wish things would go back to normal right and in those times in our normal times. We also must remember that right in our quote Happy Times this too shall pass. And you know those seasons that we encounter the good ones the bad ones be a different ones and everything in between it's all going to pass. So what's our mindset? What's the choice going to be during those challenging times? So Happy Times what's our choice going to be? How are we going to? Are we going into us from a? You know a place of gratitude where we're like, you know what? This is challenging ugly. Don't have to like it but I'M GONNA learn from it or are we going to go at it? You know angry and upset that things. Aren't quote normal and you know things used to be and I mean we can harp on that for the the twenty twenty and you know let our emotions drive us all the way into twenty twenty one but does that help it doesn't for me and I think for a lot of people they're seeing it. As you know, we are kind of in this together we can choose. How. To handle one another and our families and and emotionally decide what kind of intelligence we're going to apply to it, and that's what's been pretty interesting for me because I. Get to think about all of those things for the first time probably ever in my life where before like we talk is just kind of a`driving forward of you know I gotTa do these things. This is kind of the path with ladder and and here we go climbing where today it's a little bit different. There's a lot more consideration and be that comes with age. You know maybe the consideration for others comes with age but. It, definitely come for me in twenty twenty. As you sit there as we're approaching up Tober and you've had that time to reflect like you just said, how much alignment clarity do you have going into twenty twenty, one, I mean what what lessons have you learned where do you think you're going? You know it's it. That's that's really interesting to hear you ask that I haven't talked about it too much. Strange because I see myself now having kind of done the things that I. Set Out to do by and large. and. You know it's I feel like it's my time to kind of sit back a little more to. Like you said, enjoy the abundance, enjoy the kind of world that. I've created for myself from for my family but also to really be the mentor that I think that all those years of travel and and Interaction and things have really brought me to I. Think it's time for me to. Help individuals who are wanting to get into. Helping others you know I have gotten more messages this year from. You know students I haven't seen or talked to and five, six, seven, eight years that are wanting to get into helping others and how how do I do that well. I can help with that being able to be that person to lend some. Guidance and help with you know allowing others to really reach their goal of of helping others is a pretty major thing. So that's kind of where I see myself going will there be another book probably at some point in twenty twenty, one But..
"coburn" Discussed on Dose of Leadership
"Get on with this conversation with Joshua Cobra, Motivation Speaker Author, and entrepreneur here on those ships Joshua Coburn back on DOSA leadership. Welcome. My friend. Glad to have you here. Honored to be back. Thanks again. I'm I'm super stoked has been way too long way too long and we were talking to six years I couldn't believe that I thought. Well, I'm even four three and six years. Yes so much. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Just briefly mentioning the world's change lives have changed I mean it's it's crazy. Six years is is a long time for sure especially in this crazy digital kind of fast paced world that we've been dealing with the last several years I still feel like I've kind of obvious have kept pace with you with facebook friends. I've seen on TIKTOK. I've seen your kind of progression of you and your brand and one things can we have different is like you look like a completely different human being you look like. A beast, your monster, you're like workout. Your work regimen I, it's impressive to see how much your body has changed in six years. Yeah. Thank you. You know it's it's crazy to. Kind of that whole cycle is been interesting in terms of you know when we last spoke I was really focused on mental health and things like that especially with students. And when I would go and I would speak I get photos back of like those events which was awesome. But I felt like. I looked of like. A like a dad you know. A little bit of a gut like arms word anything major and I hadn't thought about like hitting the gym. In High School, but I realize you know part of. Good. Mental health good physical health, and if I'm not seeing that through than what kind of example am I? So yeah, it was it was time to step up my game. So I think maybe late two thousand. Fourteen fifteen it would be it'd be early, two, thousand, fifteen I started kind of stepping into that world Orrin. Weirdly, it didn't take long I ended up with a sponsorship from Supplement Company and just really dove. Headlong into that world. So it's been an interesting right to that you know to that end as well. It's impressive and I. did you change your diet? Much I mean I got the supplements sponsorship. So that was part of your Diet but did you change? How you what you were drinking I mean was that radical to Yes. But I did it over time because really when I started making that change, it was more initially mental. It was a matter of showing up be split, getting the job done and. Kind of heading home, making sure that I was on point to return the next day and as time went by, I started to see some physical changes and then it's like well okay. Now, I need to maybe adjust the food and I think a lot of people when it comes fitness. They try to they try to join the gym. You know try to change all their food all at once and they get frustrated because you know there are two weeks and they changed everything about their life. They're not happy and they're not seeing results either so I didn't approach it that way I didn't start changing my diet until a good eight or. Nine months into. Kind of my physical transformation or by my kind of. Focused to physical side of it anyway, and once I I. Really. Started thinking you know Ok food may maybe I'll look at food different. I just started with simple things instead of buying you know free frozen pizzas. By. One lesson throw Broccoli and that's how I slowly over time changed it. But yeah, I got to the point where I was. Essentially, show you know bodybuilding show ready. So I was you know five to seven percent body fat lean ready to rock and roll. Man Is Crazy I. Mean just the transformations just phenomenal but I love what you said there because it goes to no matter what you're trying to do when you change in your life changing personal habit particularly the habits and I think you hit a great point where we lose motivation or interest because we make the decision to radically change our whatever the case may be and we WANNA, go all in and that's admirable. But you're right. You know instead of you know I'm not used to getting up at five am and I want a journal and I wanna go work out and then I wanNA. Spend an hour writing my next book and then. You just go from zero to hundred. You'll you'll get Wenden you'll. You'll lose interest right and so just even starting small what I'm hearing you say starting small. Even worried about the Diet, you just started changing your discipline habits have going to the gym and getting up every day. Once you started seeing results maybe maybe ought to start step it up a notch. So kind of like a slow fade is what I'm hearing. You say and I think that's how you kind of approach life in an all your personal habits. Yeah. One hundred percent. That's how I approach absolutely everything because. You know I mean if we're if we keep focused on fitness I, was no fitness. I was just to do like well, maybe I should show up at the gym and start kind of. Figuring this out so You know when you get in the gym that can be intimidating you got all these. Big dudes or you know young ladies that are just in there you know putting in work heck I didn't even know like do I work my shoulders today do work my legs tomorrow I work by adds. Colour like on Wednesdays like how do I do? And it was just a matter of showing up you're out looking on instagram and like being like okay. So Looks like you know this and this seem to go together I'll try that and over time. Yeah. You just chip away that stone and Kinda sculpt the statue to look away wanted. You know for me, it's always been. That I'm really big at it. You know into kind of pleading ignorance when it comes to change because I'm not. Good at really anything in my opinion and I find people to teach me so I can be better. So you know if if I try to take one big bite, I'm GONNA choke via. The small bortles. And start to kind of internalize them and start to see how they fit my life so Continue to evolve and grow into whatever it is that I'm supposed to be for the sake of my listeners go back I know we on six years ago but. Can't cliff notes version your. Your kind of how you got into this idea of motivating youth in particular. That's kind when we was toxics years ago that was kind of your focus you use. The manners motivation. Kind Kinda idea particularly talking to high school students. Whitman, you've really grown entrepreneurially I see that you've. Written a book. You still doing the speaking you got into beard, oil. right watches I mean just continuing this. This kind of entrepreneurial journey. Go back though, and for the sake of listeners who maybe never met your know much about you. How did how did your? What is your kind of SPLAT moment story that can lead you down this path You know? Honestly what? Really? Kind of came down to is you know there's there's a couple of. The kind of transparent real moment that I, talked about a lot. Is September fifth two, one I decided that I was going to end my life because I was. Just Not having it with the life I was leading and I I let too many people. Say once I kind of wrote the note. And you know really decided this is what I was going to do struggling at that time also with depression and anxiety and things like that and..

Why Mayor Pete Buttigieg thinks he's the one to beat Donald Trump
"Mir p footage welcome back to the podcast extra. Haven't been good to be back all right. Let's jump right on in a row. Is it too late to stop? Senator Bernie Sanders. No but it will be if we don't get our act together. Look we have a very clear choice as a party. Right now We can take his approach and I recognize that he speaks for a lot of ideal ideals that we share but it's also an approach that is about consolidating a base and pushing away. People disagree you at a moment when I think we have to be doing the opposite now. We're only three states in We're on the eve of the South Carolina primary then come Super Tuesday but we could wake up after Super Tuesday with no going back and I think it's time to really ask ourselves how we're GONNA move forward I'm with US. You said It will be if we don't get our act together. What does that mean? What does that look like? Get Our act together. Of course what I think that should look like is to rally around a candidate. Perhaps the one candidate to have actually beaten Bernie Sanders anywhere in the country cycle which Which is my campaign and a look at a vision that can make room for everybody. That is very progressive and set up in a way that that can actually reach out to independence and android some Republicans over the line to because I think that's how we're going to win in November So that's the case that I'm continuing to make that we cannot Expect to succeed against the president this divisive if we're sewing a different kind of division from our own side there's a better way and our campaign shows the promise of making that happen and you mentioned divisive and and Senator Sanders sent out a tweet. That caught a lot of people by surprise. Were wondering if it was a lot and not him but he really did send out a tweet that said. I've Got News Republican establishment. I've got news for the Democratic Establishment. They can't stop us. How how would give me a reaction to that? Well I think it reflects a worldview where the Democratic Party is the problem. And that's not how I see things I've I've never automatically felt like part of any establishment obviously Competing as I am as a as a mayor from South Bend Indiana and not exactly waiting my turn but to to say that the big problem in America right now is Democrats. I think Mrs what's going on what's going on right now. Is We've got a president who succeeded with a hostile takeover of the Republican Party and a sense that our party has not been able to connect with a lot of people who would benefit from our policies who are certainly capable of voting for us. Think of all the people who voted for President Obama Just a few years ago and then turned around and voted for president trump. We can't let that happen again and part of why. I was very excited. About how competitive we were in the Iowa counties for example the digits that they voted for President Obama sometimes twice and then swung over to president. Trump is that we don't have to have a repeat of two thousand sixteen in fact the less twenty twenty resembles two thousand sixteen in all respects. The better does it offend you. That a person who is a member of the Democratic Party continues to thunder against the people? He'll need to win the nomination and to govern if he were to win in November. Well let me say this. Ultimately we need to unite the country and uniting. The country begins with uniting the Democratic Party. If you think the Democratic Party is the problem or even sometimes engage in rhetoric that makes it sound like Democratic Party is the enemy while competing for the Democratic nomination. That is going to make it very challenging to actually bring folks together in the speed that we need to in order to compete in order to win. What do you say to his supporters if you are the nominee and he isn't because it is no secret that the supporters have Bernie Sanders so-called Bernie Bros? I've been a victim of them. Lots of journalists have lots of politicians have lots of regular everyday people have been What's the word the kids are using a third over? That's a new. Oh yeah saying saying remotely negative things about Bernie Sanders. What do you say to them? Well I'd say you have a decision to make if this is about personality. That's one thing but if this is about policy if this is about Raising wages for workers if this is about ensuring the corporations are held accountable. This is about doing something on climate before it's too late. I will be the most progressive president in our lifetimes. It's true that I believe that some of the proposals that come from Senator Sanders go too far and and are not going to be a past anyway but Just to be very clear I am running to be a I think also would be the most progressive nominee. We've had in recent memory so if this is really about the change you want to see in the world and not how much you you feel attracted to the personality of one or another candidate. Then I'm offering just that and I'm offering it in a way that I think could actually unite an American majority. That actually is with us on these things you you'd never realize from certainly from looking at the Senate or even from looking at some of the coverage is it. There is a powerful American majority right now then agrees for example that the public sector should step up and fix the healthcare problem. Just as long as we don't force it on too many people that agrees that minimum wages have to go. We gotta do something about gun violence. We've got to create a pathway to citizenship. When it comes to immigration we got to act on climate This is an American majority. Let's let's galvanize it not blow it up. That sounds great. But what is your. What is your path after Super Tuesday and I focused on Super Tuesday because we go in rapid succession from South Carolina to Super Tuesday on three days. What is Your Path? Well we need to have a good showing in certainly on Super Tuesday and I think that we will We just We're in Virginia. Yesterday had I don't know the final crowd count but it was the better part of ten thousand. People are out there with amazing energy Same thing when we were in Colorado on our way out after the the caucuses in Nevada and we're going to work to compete in in every one of those Super Tuesday states. Look the reality is. There's no quick way to win But we believe State by state election by-election a we can piece together what we need Provided that I can do the job of Of gathering the support of those who are skeptical about Senator Sanders approach and looking for a better way. Go back to the basically the beginning of this conversation where I ask you about If we don't get our act together and of course it's all you think it's about coalescing around you. But there are a lot of people who are saying all. The centrist so-called centrists in the campaign are taking votes away from each other in allowing Senator Sanders to run away with it What would happen or how does that happen if you are? Senator Coburn Senator Warren. Don't get out of the race. I mean at some point after Super Tuesday. There's going to be a clamour in the within the party. How do you make the case to the party? That you shouldn't be the one below drop I would say that. So so if folks are looking for an alternative to Bernie Sanders and believe that there needs to be fewer alternatives in order for anyone to make it. Why would you look to the one person who's actually beaten him anywhere in the cycle as the one that you would ask to step aside You know we. We have been able to Defy all of the pundits expectations we have been able to compete Especially in again those areas that we're going to need in order to defeat. Donald trump that vote democratic usually but haven't lately and we've got a track record of ahead of a lot of the other people who are going to be Looking at Looking to their left and looking to their rights. And you're GonNa make room for me at the end of the day Voters are going to settle this.

Diego does that for us and I also want to point out that toward the end of the interview. You're going to hear two of my colleagues the Laura Coburn and Chris Riaz from nightline. Ask some questions to Diego. Because we're doing a story on him for nightline and they were in the studio with their cameras recording as we recorded this interview For the podcast forgot to mention by the way that his name is Diego Perez but the the way the world world knows him as young Pueblo. which is the name of his instagram account? And you'll hear him explain why he came to that name all right enough for me here. We go young young Pueblo. Well Nice to meet you nice to meet you too. I would love to hear your backstory. How did you get into meditation in the first place? Well it was back in July of Twenty twelve twelve day my first course in the summer And I had just overcome. It was a pretty serious year. Twenty eleven or twenty twelve. I was basically basically pulling my life back together. I had gone pretty deep into just using a pleasure and intoxicants like drugs and alcohol to get as far away from self as possible and it Kinda hit rock bottom and that summer of two thousand eleven and basically almost died felt like you. The body was just like full of drugs and I was on the floor. Basic trying to pray myself back into life because I felt like I was having a heart attack and you know I was twenty three at the time like I had to push my body that far to the edge And literally just because I didn't know how to deal with my anxiety and my sadness and from from that moment when I was on the ground there really realizing that I could have really wasted my life. I've this is not how I want to go. I don't WanNa like my parents don't especially because my parents you know. We emigrated from Ecuador when I was very young in. My parents made such a giant sacrifice for me to even be in this country and to have this opportunity but in some ways if I die now I would have wasted every all of their efforts and that sort of gave me a lot of courage to just stop. Stop doing all the hard drugs and start dislike slow. Walk into being healthy again because I was like so overweight when healthy so sad and was constantly only thinking about what like. What's the next pleasure that I could have so that I don't have to feel like this? The sadness the underlying emotions that you're trying trying to get away from were they just part of your wiring or were they connected to life experiences that have been traumatic. Yeah there I I mean besides like the trauma of poverty. We grew up poor but house always kind of wired that way. Even when I was really little I always felt you know I was very extroverted. Had A lot of friends but just underlying sadness that kind of compounded over time and it just grew and grew to the point where it became unmanageable and really really destructive. Where did you grow up so I grew up in Boston after we was born in Ecuador? And when I moved moved to Boston when I was four and a half and then I was there until I was eighteen when I went to college in Boston proper. Yeah Yeah in Jamaica Plain and what we're folks doing to to get by. It was tough. I mean we were so we're broke like My mom was cleaning houses and my dad was working in a supermarket and luckily we were able to live live in Boston. Because my aunt who had moved from Ecuador in the sixties She and her husband had bought like triple decker and they were renting it really cheap one of the floors I us For like very very cheap and so you went off to college at Eighteen and then a twenty three year. You're on the floor of your apartment. Yeah what what. How bad did what did it look like your the the drug abuse drinking what? How bad did it get? It was consistent not every day. It was kind of like a Monday to know. Sorry from Wednesday to Monday. I think like Tuesday's we're off and But even on Tuesdays. I'd still be like smoking weed and but the weekend was very long. We got there like at the school that I went to especially at that time. I don't know what the culture is like there. Now but which Wesleyan University I was great prestige school. Yeah no it was great And I learned a time time when I was there and I. I love the experience that I had but I definitely just sought out having fun or what I thought was way too much and it became so consistent and like a a norm that I didn't think anything was wrong and then when I left there I saw that I still had that like constant urge craving to just continue that and I wasn't in that environment that could produce it so I had to like make situations to continue having the spine so just got really heavy into cocaine and to to the point where I just felt like I couldn't even walk very far without my heart feeling like it was gonNA explode Yeah I've Had My own experiences with that drug. Yeah get produced a panic attack from you on national television. Which was Oh yeah? Yeah so you've taken us through the what appears to be pretty hard bottom On the floor Trying to pray yourself back to some sense of normalcy. How did of that land you on a meditation? Retreat sounds like a year later. It was exactly I was almost exactly a year later so I stopped the really hard drugs And I started and exercising and taking superfoods. I remember like one of the first things I did was by the toughest bureau of Barley grass and started consuming. 'cause like I never never knew how to eat well and I slowly started feeling better and better like you know. Having a relatively good diet helps balance the mind out a bit so that was helping me see things a little more clearly than a friend of mine had been travelling in India and he did attend David Positive of course and he when he came so. This is also one of the people that I used to party with a time. You know do all the same drugs with and everything and he wrote an email after his experience and it was all about love Compassionate and goodwill so to me I was like like what the hell happened like this person who I love. You know I was like one of my brothers. Why is he talking about love? Now like what you know how. How is this experience variance so powerful that it made him right this email so I immediately signed up and did a few months later and it was like dramatically changed my life? I want to dive deeply and just just for clarity of terms if a pasta can be a confusing term on a number of levels one of which one of the levels levels is that there is a kind of meditation practiced in many ways And in many different ways In the Meditation World When people say I'm going on on the positive retreating often mean I'm going on a retreat at a center established by legendary very teacher by the name of S N. That's was an Indian businessman who learned how to meditate while doing business in Burma. Yeah exactly and he then started creating meditation centers for lay people. And now they're all over. You were telling me this three hundred before we started about three hundred around the world and so the Pasta is an ancient form of meditation also called insight. Meditation taught outside of the Wencke school such as such as it is but somehow in the meditation vernacular nowadays and when people say. I'm going out of the positive retreat. They generally mean going. Yeah definitely I think. The positive globally is sort sort of like the silent giant like there's so many of us centers around the world and people practice it To different degrees and I think that's what. Yeah what people think about talk about going kind of pasta on

Serendipity for the 'Mueller, She Wrote' podcast
"Muller? She wrote has been a weekly podcast since two thousand seventeen examining the developments in the investigation by Robert Muller into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election episodes are occasionally taped before a live audience and one was scheduled for last night at Largo here in Los Angeles, and then serendipity struck when it was announced that the mole report would be released that same day, the podcast hosts are stand up comedians, Jellison Johnson, Jordan, Coburn and a woman who only goes by her initials, and now please welcome the host of more. She wrote. He g won't reveal her full name because she's a federal employee whose prohibited by law from participating in partisan political activities, I was in the audience for last night's taping. And then spoke with Jordan, Coburn and AG afterward. And I began by asking AG how the timing of the mole report changed her show last night. It literally changed like twenty minutes before we got here because we've had the same structure for live shows that we've been doing for all two of our previous life show, so far I was like we can't just act like it's a normal day. You guys we have a really great show planned for you that we just scrapped, and we were probably gonna go right off the cuff or this called going and cold. But we hope you enjoy it. We're going to do some sabotage. We're gonna do some fantasy indictment league. Because you we normally keep it a little bit more light hearted and fun and have some games involved. You know in the live show. We'd like a quiz section on our news stories. But yeah, we had to switch it last minute. You go by the initials AG, and for people who don't understand does does that have something to do with the hatch act, and why are your initials in the hatch act in some way connected for people who don't understand what the hatch act is. I'm going out of my way extra to not violate the hatch act because I work for Trump's executive branch. And so the hatch act basically says that you you can't use your agency or title as federal government employees to advocate for or against a somebody running for political office. And we know Trump's been running since the day he got into office because that's his moneymaker. I take a step further. I could use my name. I just want to keep it all out of it. And I want to keep a nice giant crowbar separation between what I do at night and on the weekends. And what I do during the day. What do you think your work, and your background give you in terms of understanding issues that other people might not have working in the government? And I think you're veterans that right, right? What does that perspective? Give you how understanding how absolutely slow the government roles. It's just so Celo and people right now they want answers now. And they, you know, they just don't understand why things take so long, and I hope that I can lend some explanation as to why they do and that it's actually that way for a purpose. When the report came out did you say to yourself? That's it for the podcast because I mean, obviously, the title of the podcast is Muller. She wrote and Miller has written. I'm not sure really because I I don't feel that I'd dictate where this show goes. I think the listeners dictate whether or not the show keeps happening, but you know, personally, we've got twenty offspring investigations from this. That are still open an ongoing we've got the stone trial that doesn't start till November. We've got bijon key on July. We'll keep covering it. If people keep needing us. To cover it. Yeah. I think we know that there's a lot to be covered and could go on for a very long time. But my fear, I guess was that people would take bars four-page summary and think that that means shops closing up, and that's all there's to be seen. But I don't think that's how our fans are. And I think we have a lot more to do. Everyone was like, oh, they're done. No further indictments. And then boom, Greg Craig it's dieted yet. Mr. first name since right? One indictment bridge. Name. Yeah. What you that's the real crime who first name. What do you think it is that you give listeners that maybe they can't find some other place? I think we remove the talking angry heads that a lot of people get tired of. But mostly the whole mission of this was to keep people interested in keep people engaged and to keep it simple. And to to take these traumatic and important events in spin them into humor, it it kind of helps us get through it. It's kind of like if you don't laugh, you'll cry and fans say that we were curatorial journalists and everything that we do we always provide context as well. So it's it's like very as a huge story, obviously and everything fits in a time line. And I think we do a good job of reminding everyone the the importance of each news bid that comes up and keep it rolling in a way that's easy to digest. And yet in a very recent episode of your podcast, you

"Jim coburn about that same question did this the take on the issue of whether the arbitration panel's themselves which are generally pay as we've already established paid for by the company's probably selected by the companies have an inherent conflict of interest well there are efforts made to try to to make sure that's not the case their third party groups that provide these arbitrators though it's not as if the companies out there hand who decides these sorts of of claims realized that the vast majority of these customer complaints are handled by the the company's internally again customers a banks and credit card companies are they don't general wanna lose customers they want to attract customers so they try to resolve these things fairly but sometimes you know they're not able to to to to do this internally sometimes there's legitimate dispute and that's where these arbitrators come into play courts do review these arbitration clauses and their processes for fundamental fairness the do reject arbitration clauses that are deemed unconscionable the very point that the company is paying for this process is is a dramatic contrast to the legal system where yes you're plaintiff's lawyer says you don't pay anything unless you win but what that means is the plaintiff's lawyers only going to take your case if they think they can get back enough money uh to recoup those losses which is why these consumers are only getting redress in these class action situations and and these particular as claims if you have a real particular has claimed you're not able to get that into a class action lawsuit i realize league lisa is an a lawyer by training with it would you just can't do that they have to be cimoli situated claims that's how that rule 23 of the federal civil procedure work and and you're just not able to get a class action claim with a particular as claim of harm all you're able to get our these very similar claims like all these overdraft these are unfair and the class action lawyers will string them altogether and you'll get a million people in that gets millions of dollars to the point us attorney.
