Boris Johnson boots out top adviser Dominic Cummings

"For his johnson's first year as british. Prime minister has been a rocky one. There's the pandemic johnson's own battle with covid. Nineteen never ending. Brexit talks and political u turns on everything from free school meals to a lockdown through it all johnson has had his chief advisor dominant cummings by aside last friday that partnership ended abruptly leaving many wondering. What's next for the prime minister and for brexit from london. The world's orla berry has more dominic cummings achieved what few advisors to any uk. Prime minister have done. He's become a household name in britain. Coming did so as the chief architect behind the vote leave campaign persuading voters to say yes to brexit in twenty sixteen. We can say the decision taken in one thousand nine hundred seventy five by this country to join. The common market has been reversed by this referendum. The british people have spoken. And the answer is we're out. The news was a stunning political developments. That cummings largely orchestrated when the conservatives won a majority in last december's election he got credit for that too for the campaign slogan that secured boris johnson. This landslide victory. Everybody my friends we didn't. We pulled it off in weight and monday and this majority we will at last be able to do what. Tension johnson awarded commes with the top job as chief advisor and the move upset. A lot of people because cummings is notoriously abrasive figure with a knack for robbing people up. The wrong way for those who oppose brags cummings is despised but in johnson's own conservative party. Coming plenty of enemies to is stone was abrasive and combative and involved attacking institutions in a way. That was very own conservative. That's david goldberg. A former justice secretary with the party speaking to the bbc his colleague. Mp charles walker says cummings cut off access to the prime minister. We feel we've lost in for the last year. We want him back. he belongs to. She doesn't belong to the advisers. He belongs to the parliamentary party. That elected him but despite the descent from his party colleagues. Boris johnson remained fiercely loyal to his toes. Assayed most memorably when cummings flouted national lockdown rules by driving to his parents home in another part of england and then taking a day trip to local castle what suffering with covert symptoms. Cummings was forced to give a press conference to try and explain his actions. My wife was very worry. Particularly given my is cited c. Which seemed to have been affected by the disease. We agreed that we should go for short. Drive to see if i could drive safely. Who drove for roughly half an hour. An ended up on the outskirts of bond castletown. His explanation did not go down well with the british public or many conservative. mp's but despite all the outrage the prime minister refused to sack. Cummings matthew flinders professor of politics at sheffield university. Says it's not just loyalty. Boris as a kind to me somebody who needs to be loved and actually bought. You had reposting dominant. Cummings was the most strangest sort of good cop. Bad cop political partnership basically domain. Cummings was there to ruffle feathers to be disruptive often that had to happen to shake things up. But boris was never gonna do that which makes coming sudden departure from ten downing street on friday. All the more intriguing. Some are convinced. That johnson's trustee aid finally turned against him but apart from the intrigue many wonder what cummings departure will mean for. The brexit talks with this hard line. Brexit tear no long regicide. Boris johnson agreed to compromise and strike a deal with the eu. Not to flinders. Doesn't think so. Now there are so many big big areas where there is no agreement a tool. It's hard to see even with dominic cummings out of the way whether that could be any agreement and actually the person who is strongest and most of bitten into not negotiating is is boris. So no. I don't think there's going to be southern rapid shift in european policy but former prime minister gordon brown says a deal could be on the cards speaking on national television. He says it's less about dominic. Cummings and more about who's moving into the white house. I think the arrival of joe biden has made all the difference. Icy trade deal coming pretty soon. The government simply cannot afford to be at war with america on the one hand in europe and the other at the start of the new year

'Our hands are tied': Local aid workers exposed in pandemic

"A mask, official reports say. Kim urged authorities to take precautions ahead of Typhoon Bobby's arrival. A storm came just weeks after monsoon floods damaged infrastructure farms and killed at least 20 North Koreans. That's according to media reports and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, which works with local partners on the ground there, Nazanin today Cummings lectures on humanitarian studies at Deacon University in Melbourne. She says Pyongyang usually turns to foreign aid groups for disaster relief. And to make that happen, these agencies need to build trust with North Korean officials. International organizations are really dependent on having relationship. Inside North Korea, where they have access to information and access to people and access to places that are affected by his after. But because of the covert 19 pandemic, many foreign aid workers are now locked out of the country today coming says You can't do zoom calls from abroad with North Korean officials to coordinate disaster relief. She says Pyongyang's containment measures like closing down its borders and limiting domestic travel were extreme but perhaps necessary. So I think the way North Korea has responded to the pandemic shows that the authorities understand and are very cognizant of how weak the health system is and how how devastating Corbett could be North Korea Earlier this month, Kim Jeong Eun made a rare admission. His economic reforms have failed. He largely blamed the pandemic, international sanctions and natural disasters Today. Cummings agrees that Cove it and US and United Nations restrictions have impacted foreign aid. But she pushes back on the notion that disasters in the North are natural. They don't become disasters and hold a interact with human decision making the inability to be prepared for disasters, the inability to mitigate risk for the disasters and the inability for people to have a system that supports them to be able to make it through hazards without casualty. She adds, the impact of typhoons and floods could be lower if North Korea made caring for its people a priority for the world. I'm Jason Strother and soul.

Star Wars the Clone Wars

"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.

We've tested to have before on the podcast about trans. Women and mental health in general today. We're catching up with her to see how she's doing in lockdown and also to chat about her recent work. Dawson welcome back to mentally as thanks so much for coming on. Thank you for having me back time. Do I know exactly what it was? It was two years ago because I was really lay. Train hilarity and I've never been so stressed and then not only was I. I went to the wrong. Cheat stuff as well. I can't believe it's been two years, but thanks for coming back on. We were already gently checking about this before we started recording. How have you been getting on during lockdown generally? It's strange now because I want to use the phrase noble because I don't think his normal. Ud, just kind of comes and goes in waves. Doesn't it kind of? How bothered you are by things and I. Think in a strange with that. We've sled a relaxed some of the lockdown roles. It's almost harder in a way like when it was very strict roles, we'll do what we couldn't couldn't dare. Except for Dominic Cummings, who did? What we were allowed to do, and we all we all just stay home and we isolated with the people that we lived. Whereas now there's all these thousands of perplexing roles about you can go to the zoo, but you can't see grandma you're. You're allowed to go for Bob Hewitt at your friends, but you cannot can't use the toilet, so it's all. It's all very strange. During knows us to be happening when it's super strange. If you're single like me, because a friend tweeted earlier, basically you can go to the zoo, but you still have sex. If, you're single. Technically like that has been no announcement about anything like that. So that's is just a weird state of events is net, but anyway. The zoo. A question. So to get the most serious stuff. Have you found anything particularly challenge challenging during the pandemic. yeah I think. Initial theory again we've been. We've been inside for months now. going chronologically at the beginning of lockdown. Wife found really difficult was pretending that everything was normal. Think particularly as a writer people looked at. My life has one which could very much carry on us normal like. What are you worried about? You can just keep on writing like this'll be great. You could just get the next novel done. And so I made a little office space in my living room of tried to. was really really pushing myself to work. Like from nine to five and Then at the same time. I was like project managing my partner as well because he'd been furloughed was right will. This is a list of jobs that need doing around the house. About maybe three weeks in I just had a complete breakdown, and it manifested with me attacking of Venetian blind. Wasn't that wasn't behaving in the way I wanted it to, but that's just wasn't remember that night. I just went to bed, and just cried and cried and cried and Max I think wasn't really shall what was going on, but I think. I just needed to let it out because I've been soft clinging mom. And and you know, it wasn't normal and isn't normal this this isn't like anything that anyone who is alive now has experienced I mean potentially if you are old enough to remember World War Two and I guess you. You've lived through this situation before, but everybody Balm Post Nineteen fifty isn't GonNa remember any of situation like this and I think the there was almost I had to go through a process of just accepting that nothing was the same an indeed and I've had seen the people of referred to it as a love, the same emotions as bereavement. Light let's Elaine go part. Of like, you're not going to be seeing your friends, you're not going to be seeing your family. You'RE NOT GONNA be. Doing exactly what you want to do. Doubled up, point is. Public Health Fairs. Are. We GonNA get sick. Are we going to die? I'm having I was very lucky in that nobody who I personally NAR has. died of Covid, but my daddy did get sick from something else, so we were trying to deal with you. Know my dad being in hospital and Oh my God. He's in hospital with his diabetes is GonNa get coronavirus. So it was it was a lot, but the not feels like years ago now because that was like right at the beginning of lockdowns. That really does feel like a different life.

California City Bans Predictive Policing Software

California City Bans Predictive Policing Software

"In the wake of black lives matter protests, governments across the country have been weighing how to reform their police, departments and address inequities law enforcement. One tactic that's come under scrutiny has been the use of surveillance technology last week, a city council in Santa Cruz California voted to ban what's called predictive policing software? It could be the first measure of its kind in the US, our reporter David. Bertie has been looking into this and joins us to. To explain hey, Dave. Thanks for joining US Qatari all right, so explain to us what is predictive policing? How does it work predictive policing technology as it's used in Santa Cruz or has been using Santacruz? Essentially a data analysis tool that tracks usually three types of data, crime, type, location, and timing, and essentially allows the police department project where hotspots within the city would be an argument for this type of technology is that would allow police department? To basically make decisions more efficiently in terms of how they allocate resources. So why is it coming under? Scrutiny is coming under scrutiny for a few reasons. One is sort of this national discussion. We're having about race and policing which has filtered down to local areas such as Santa. Cruz in California, but also people in that city had a first hand. Look at how this technology has played out the police department. There was an early adopter of the. The technology and decided that if we base our policing tactics on analysis of data that is inherently biased is going to produce an in some cases replicate biased policing tactics. So why is it inherently biased? Explain that to us. How does watching where crimes are happening now and using that data to predict new crimes? Why why is there bias in their book to Santa? Cruz Mayor Justin Cummings explained it this way. Basically, it's garbage in garbage out. Coming said to me if we collect data from police, stops or crimes that are reported in our current policing system, it's going to reflect a policing system in which underrepresented communities such as black communities or Hispanic communities face disproportionately heavy police presence, so we take data from a policing strategy. The disproportionately put officers in communities of color were going to get data reflects. Reflects that policing strategy so in ways in some cases perpetuates that cycle, so it's not I mean just to be clear. When we say, it's collecting data about crime that's happening. It's using data that the cops are giving them about things like police stops there stopping someone, and that is being recorded as crime whether or not actual crime place. They're not yet the. Gist of it and what Cummings would argue, and what the city council. Santa Cruz also agreed upon is that they will also reflect sort of the disproportionate ways. Cops have been shown to stop people of Color, so you know in some cases they might stop a black driver more often than a white driver for a regular speeding ticket, for example that's sort of a mundane example, but I think you could play the Dow and people in Santa. Cruz have played it out over the course of different types of potential crimes now, Santa Cruz isn't the only place in the country. That's used this sort of predictive policing New York. City has used it as. As well, and they've been under fire for many years for stop and Frisk. Policy which basically feeds into exactly what you're talking about. Roy New York pioneers a statistical modeling called COMSAT in one thousand nine hundred ninety S, which is a little bit more of a primitive version of this essentially uses big data from different types of crime committed around the city in order to project where officers should spend the most time in resources, so predictive policing technology basically takes that to the next level. It injects an artificial intelligence to the process. It basically allows software to learn crime patterns over the course of time in order to better project, police should go. So are other cities following I mean this is obviously happening in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and a lot more attention, being paid to the way that policing is taking place around the country. Are we seeing other cities and states kind of think about this in the same direction Santa Cruz is thought to be the first city in the country to actually ban predictive policing, and it did so in large part because. It has experienced with this technology actually in two thousand eleven time magazine named the Santa Cruz police departments. Use of technology is one of the fifty best inventions of the year, so they're definitely ahead of many other cities in this regard, but spoke to some civil liberties advocates over the last couple of days, and they said this is certainly a new front in this larger discussion we're having about police surveillance, which is really ramped up over the last few weeks. Particularly Municipalities, so you have places like Boston, which recently voted to ban facial recognition technology. Technology for its police. Department California, also recently stopped bill at the state level that would regulate facial recognition technology, and I think at the state and local level across the country you do see a lot of lawmakers and activists really start to push reconsider how police use technology

"That's how it looks and that's how it looks to cabinet ministers so that one of them told The Times that Johnson is sacrificed his own credibility to save dominic. Cummings this whole episode has revealed. Just how reliant is own comings if he's prepared to expand so much capital an embarrassment and fury at his behavior to try to save him. Don't forget this all of this happened in the North East. Yeah key part of Labour's Red Wall that cummings is strategy very successfully helped dismantle and at the last election. The the anger is very clear in in the emails. I'm getting from people in the northeast and tips about more sightings this. This is considered outrageous. Yes interesting the moment. He seemed most rattled joined. The press conference was when he was asked about what new Tory voters would. Make of all this one for me. What is your message from Conservative voters? Who voted this government? In less than six months ago allow them for the first time in the northeast around. Dharam who what you out Downing Street and went out this government ministers to them. Well I think I've made mistakes I've dealt with this The the the all sorts of things in government. I don't think I made a mistake about these about these. Fourteen days that the question you have to remember that coming sees himself as someone. Perry in touch with normal people's worries and he thinks that the media the Westminster bubble the Metropolitan Lee as he might put it. Don't get it. There was a hint of that time and again during the session and I suspect it helps explain his stubborn early response to the media. Maybe he thinks normal people don't care about this but is he wrong this time. He's he's not. Only bubble thing is obsessed the bubble but it has also obsessed the the public if someone who has supposedly fantastic instincts on what the public think. It looks as if on this one. He's lost it and with potentially pretty big consequences if what the scientists are saying is right. If it's true that the sense that it's one rule for them and another for the rest of US leads people to say. Why are we bothering? We've all had messages in the last few days of people saying why am I sticking to the lockdown? If they're not going to do it we've seen all over twitter. Do you think this could impact on? How strictly people adhere to the lockdown yet. This happened at a time of a major crisis. We still having hundreds of deaths and distiller risk of a second peak. People still need to obey the rules and they need a government giving very clear messages about what to do and are the moment there it government that seemed to be obsessed about Cummings is future then about giving clear message to the public at a really critical Time Matthew. Weaver thank you very much pleasure. That was not weaver. Due to the Guardian Dot Com to read has excellent reporting on this and all the fallout from our political team and other reporters rolling coverage of the crisis including the next stage of the lockdown being eased with shops to open on June the fifteenth.

"He was in and when he said he understood that caused anger. He did seem to turn on. The media suggest that the reason that people were frustrated was because of things. That had been misreported. If you're sitting at home what you all the major over the last Three Days Fan I think also people would be very angry and I completely understand that but I think I hope and think that today when she explained all of the circumstances about it I think people realize this was a very complicated tricky situation and I was trying to weigh up a lot of different things Really use that opportunity to admit to the vast majority of what you report it. I pretty riled or that bit. I thought that to blame us for reporting what he did. folk for generating. This anger was really disingenuous. He has created the anger and a not us not the way we've reported it so no resignation ban there the support from our Johnson in the daily press conference that followed. My conclusion is that. I think he acted reasonably legally and as I said yesterday with integrity with care of his family and and for others. We've seen stuff like this before and we've seen Downing Street traitor brazen stuff like this out and normally an adviser just wouldn survive. This and the dom would have broken and that would be. The prime minister will be forced to remove them but it does fail different hair for a few reasons and I just want to talk about them. I think the first thing is to understand dominic cummings himself and also his relationship with Boris. Johnson he's been a controversial figure for years as an advisor at the Department for Education. David Cameron called him a career psychopath. He came back to lead vote. Leave coining the very famous phrase take control and then disappeared for and returned and he was the man who Johnson sees as having got brexit done. He's also seen as one of the key architects at the two thousand and nineteen conservative election victory. So Boris Johnson. Basically gambling hair. That it's better to take this political hair however harder is the lose. The brain of Dominic Cummings from Downing Street.

"In many ways. Do wonder if this would have been better for cummings had he come out right at the start. A little. Sheepish admitted that it looked bad but said they didn't believe they broken the rules and they were parents in a desperate situation. Instead they immediately came out in attack mode he berated journalists outside his house. Of course the hey reasonably legally were young is good looks off. It's a question of doing thing about what you guys think. Downing Straight attacked the campaigning. Newspapers behind the story. Do you think the way they responded actually made it worse yeah. I think they've really underestimated the anger coming. Savior. It's not just public anger conservative. Mp's a really angry too. They're getting the neck from their constituents and more and more of them are coming out and saying coming to go. I think eleven Tori. Mp So far are calling for Dominic Cummings to step down or suddenly be sacked. I think the list of those people Stephen Bake Damian Collins Simon Hoare Craig Whittaker Caroline nokes Robert Simms Robert Half Une Peter Bone so roger gale pull Mainardi Studies. You have any idea why dominant cummings reacted in the way he did. He thought he could raise it out. I think he. He's clearly an very important person to the prime minister and wants to remain. So we need to talk about Boris. Johnson's press conference. Some have described it as Trumpian. He comes out. He says he understands why. People might be upset. But Ben says the after talking to coming face to face is persuaded that he did the right thing. Were expecting Johnson to come out and SAT. Cummings. We were expecting him to probably launch an inquiry. We thought that that my can diffuse the situation instead. He defended him good afternoon. I want to begin by answering the question that people have been asking in the last forty eight hours and that is is this government asking you the people the public to do one thing while senior people here in government do something else. Have we been asking you to make sacrifices to obey social distancing? Stay at home while some people have been basically flouting those rules and endangering lives and it's because I take this matter so seriously and frankly it is so serious that can tell you. Today I've had extensive face to face conversations with Dominic Cummings and I concluded that in traveling to find the right kind of childcare at the moment when both he and his wife were about to being capacity aided by Corona vars and when he had no I think he followed the instincts of every father and every parent and I do not mark him down for that. I was watching it while in WHATSAPP. Contact with Robin Lease Chemistry teacher in Carso and Johnson was asked directly about the trip to Barnard Castle as I was. What's happening the guy in it? Dominic Cummings make a trip to Barnard Castle in April when he was isolating or at least was based in Durham. Right in what I can tell you is that I think when you look at the guidance when you look at the particular childcare needs that Mister Cummings faced at the time. It was reasonable with him. Fights just refuse to answer fourteen days or more with his family where he did the Brooklyn was. What's having me say he's he economics his true and the fury on in his typing with blood really coming through said earlier on. I've looked at them carefully and I'm content that at all times through one of the things same irritate people and I certainly found my walks up suddenly fired up with people who don't normally message me anything about politics. Was this idea that both Johnston said Dominic Cummings was following instincts of every father in essentially trying to protect his family and Gary Gibbons from Channel Four came back with a good response to that saying he might have been following his instincts. The rest of the country was following the rules. I mean did you see the reaction to that. Press conference was to come over. As a sort of headmaster he'd had a word coming and you didn't mark him down for his baby. He was the forgiving this time. And as if that was enough and clearly wasn't advises on the scientific body has been advising the government on lockdown role saying this is really going to undermine the message about staying home. We'd have withstood there. They're adapting the rules of the moment but they basically the the message is still to stay home and Cummings. His behavior is just blown that apart. Even the Bishop of Manchester with calling for Comey's the show repentance. The Daily Mail a paper. That is fiercely loyal To the government headline on Mondays paper was walk. Plenty on I think I read quite a few tweet saying when you've lost the mail and the Guardian. You're really in trouble. You think those. Even this bizarre moment wasn't that went someone with access to the official. Uk Civil Service twitter accounts than a message out saying arrogant and offensive. Can you imagine having to work with these truth? Twist is a message that was quickly deleted but not before a lot of people seem to frame it and even put a on t shirts I mean. Do you think that was quite telling not message here? And it. It's really summed up the anger and the mood in the country. At the moment there was footage of of his neighbors barracking him on Sunday and he won't even take with A. Would you recommend Paso freaked out? The anger from that footage was really palpable. Why do you think people are so angry? The phrase that keeps up from the very vessels on this to now is that this seems to be one roof coatings and one row for everyone else and I guess because of the level of anger it couldn't continue as it had and that's why yesterday we had what was really quite a remarkable sight. Dominic Cummings coming out to the Rose Garden a place where I've only ever once I think in a press conference by Prime Minister to answer questions on this. Obviously you watching very very closely ed Tell me what happened so he decided that he would have to admit to what he done and often explanation and basically the explanation was that is wife got ill. She told me she suddenly felt badly ill. She felt like she might pass out. And there'd be no to look for child. He was worried about child. Cash also wide about threats to him in a street in London. The truth is that I had argued four lockdown. I did not oppose it. But these stories that create divide by sphere my hope of subject threats violence people came to my house shouting threats though. Postal Social Media and coaching attacks the many media reports on TV show which of White House also worried given the severity of this emergency situation would get worse. And I was worried about the possibility of leaving my wife and child at home all day and often the night while I worked in number TAT decided to drop to Durham to stay in a property that belongs parents is separate from his parents and insisted he throughout the fourteen day isolation period remained there apart from one trip to the hospital for his son in which he stayed in the car at the end. He says he got doctors clearance to go back to work. Explained our families symptoms and all the timings and I asked if it was safe to return to work on Monday Tuesday seek Charlestown so I was told that it was safe and I could return to work and see all can afford doing so there. Was this very bizarre explanation for the trip to Barnard Castle that we revealed on Saturday. He said that his wife was worried about his eyesight which deteriorated during his bout of service. My wife was very worried particularly given moist C. Which seemed to be affected by the disease? She's not want to risk for nearly three hundred mile drive with child. Given how ill I had been. We agreed that we should go for short drive to see if like could drive safely. Who drove for roughly half an hour and ended up on the outskirts on Castletown. Who did not visit the castle? We did not walk around the town. We've talked by a river. My wife and I discussed the situation. We agreed like drive safely. We should turn around her. I felt sick. He confirmed exactly what we reported that he saw an elderly gentleman. My wife wished him happy Easter from a distance. But we had no other interaction renewed is rubbing lease and then go back in the car and when home and then when did go to work later that week but he also very categorically denied that he had been back to Dharam on the nineteenth. The last few days there'd be many media reports returned to Durham after the thirteenth of April. All these stories are false there a particular report that I return on the nineteenth of April photos. I'm data on my phone. Prove this to be false and local. Cctv would also prove what. I'm telling the truth that I was in London on that. I was not in Durham. He didn't apologize. He said he understood how this had created anger but he was looking for sympathy for the predicament..

"However exposed two hundred mile plus journey by the prime minister's chief adviser during the lockdown Dominic Cummings denies breaking the rules Guardian and the Daily Mirror had reported. The police spoke to the family the narrow and the Guardian revealed that he left London and travelled more than two hundred and fifty miles to his parents. Home in Durham. Where they report. The police became involved do you know how dominate Cummings himself reacted we know that sources close to dominate. Cummings said that he wasn't bothered by the story and that he was fake news. Okay so for you back in the office. And you're getting the response. Spaeth out there on social media on the news bulletins but also in your inbox. Tell me what you're hearing. It just went nuts. My inbox is just Elliott. We comments clearly that story. It really struck a nerve. Everyone was been stuck in lockdown. For weeks they were furious. That this Guy Completely. Flouting the rules that he hoped to drove okay. So let's just turn to the Downing Street response about stage despouy not for weeks. They quickly admitted that he had been in Durham but they argued that he hadn't broken the rules. They said that the journey was believed to be necessary to ensure the welfare of the son of coming and Mary Wakefield's as they both fell ill and they they were really using the child. Care Angle as the sort of a trying to justify. Michael Gov tweeted. The caring wife and child is not a crime. There looked to be a concerted effort by cabinet ministers to defend comings. And it really did look coordinated. Didn't that the chancellor she knock saying it's obviously justifiable and reasonable trying to score political points over. It is not my handcart. The Health Secretary Amazing given that he had backed police action against the scientists. Neil Ferguson saying I know how ill this makes you and he was simply finding childcare. I I was struck by the Foreign Secretary Dominant Rob. He said it was reasonable and fair to ask for an explanation on this. But not you've been asking for an explanation on it since the fifth of April if it was reasonable. Why haven't they responded to exactly that? Rubs comment really stuck in the crew but the general gist of what they were saying was really pithily summed up Oliver Dowden in a tweet he said Don Cummings followed the guidelines and looked after his family end of story. We need it. It wasn't the end of the story and that we had another boom moment coming on Saturday night. Senior ministers have rallied to support. Boris Johnson's most senior adviser Dominic. Cummings seeing he did nothing wrong by traveling from London to Durham during the crooner virus locked nine. New allegations emerged tonight that he made more than one trip. Opposition parties have said he should resign or be sacked tonight the Guardian and the mirror a reporting. He was seen twice at locations. Some distance from the House Downing Street coming Horton's crisis isn't over the cummings as more witnesses come forward but I just wanted to thank anyone who has left. Us lovely reviews. We really appreciate the feedback. Do continue to leave them or tweet us. You can tweet me at an issue. Astana and if you have time. I wondered if anyone would consider voting for us in the listeners. Choice Award at the British podcast awards. We'd really appreciate and it. Super-quick go to British podcast awards DOT COM forward slash. `Bout in amongst the deluge of emails. I was getting. I got this fantastic tip from a guy in Bonnard. Cosso thirty miles away from where we knew. Dominic Cummings Wolves often developing symptoms for coronavirus. And this guy was prepared to go on the record. He saw comings and his family walking along the banks of the teas and getting into a big range rover and he took down the registration plates of the car went back home and Google them and his Internet. Search history showed. That's exactly what he did on that date and there is Internet searches Straits. Just tell me tell me about him. His name's Ruben Lease. And he's a retired chemistry teacher and he likes to go for walks along the teas and he likes to record what he sees birds. The changing seasons and he also recorded coming his numberplate. He gave a very precise description of when he saw him which was the twelfth of April. Which happens to be Mary Wakefield's birthday and they should have been on lockdown and we also knew that we'd held back that we had another revelation to come about coming movements in subsequent weeks. We'd been told that he went to Bluebell. Woods in Durham on the nineteenth of April. It means that he went back to London. He was photographed in Downing Street the fourteenth of April clutching a plastic bag with a cotton of soup. And a Tangerine in it here. He is on the data on the nineteenth of April. According to our souls committee. On how lovely. The bluebells were in. Durham Okay and in this case the allegations of pretty extraordinary I mean. Firstly the idea that he may have returned to Durham but also none of us were able to get in our car and travel thirty miles to go to a beauty spot. The guidance does suggest you can get into a car and go exercise if you spend more time exercise than driving but it seems to me. That's a clear breach of the rules. What Dead Downing Street say the described book? The Guardian in the mirror had ridden as inaccurate stories including claims that cummings returned to Durham off to return to work in Downing Street. So this detail about him going to London back again with the one that they were most uncomfortable with but they didn't deny recon.

"You've had a crazy few days. Take me back. Where did it all begin? So is the second week of April. Got this extraordinary voicemail from someone who said they'd seen Dominic Cummings in Durham and. I thought they must have been mistaken. Dominic Coen's is supposed to be this genius. He wouldn't be so stupid as to drive to Durham in the lockdown. Especially because we knew we had corona virus at the time. And the tone of Voice of the voicemail. It was clear that this person was very convinced that they had seen cummings so I called them up and and they sounded even more convincing. They said they'd seen Cummings with a small child. In a property known to Blunter Comey's his parents. The source was someone who lives very nearby and they gave a very precise time they said it was a cost to six in the evening of Sunday. The fifth of April and that was the day that Boris Johnson. Cummings his boss with Weston Thomas Hospital in that our style. Downing Street has said that the prime minister has been admitted to hospital in. What's being described as precautionary step? And it was also that night a few hours after this of the chief medical officer in Scotland had to resign. I've already issued a statement this morning apologising unreservedly for traveling away from my home restrictions in place as well as this weekend. It's important to be clear that I also was there last weekend with my husband. I did not follow the advice. I'm giving to others. I'm truly sorry for that so I was acutely aware that if we could prove that cummings was in Durham. This was a massive story so I asked the source. They approve it did. Did you have a photograph of him? There they didn't but they did give a really detailed description of what he was wearing. They said they only looked over to the property. When hearing an Abba's dancing queen playing in the background is just it was just too good to be true and I thought this was really a detailed account with precise times really good observations. This was enough to go to Downing Street and ask them is his true and Downey's refused to comment. They weren't denying it. Even majorly says smell a rat. You think we obviously needed a lot more proof so I began kind of digging around to see if anyone else had spotted comey's in the area and it turns out that were more sightings. We began to chase down leads and get more people to talk. Say you've been to Downing Street. You weren't convinced by the Non Denial. What happened next within this extraordinary piece? In the spectator appeared from domain comes his wife Mary Wakefield and she gave this very detailed account of the both both of them becoming very sick And spending fourteen days in lockdown and Kush never said where they were until the very end when she said she emerged into the comical madness of of of London mayor. Wakefield is the commissioning editor of the spectator. Where she's written about her own experience her husband. Dominic Cummings is the prime minister's chief advisor. Here's some reflections. And she even ready on radio for my husband did wash to look after me. He's an extremely kind man. Whatever people seem to the country the twenty four hours later he said? I feel weird and collapsed. I felt worthless sometimes achey but don't couldn't get out of bed day in day out for ten days. He laid with a high fever. Given what we knew about Ben Movements we thought that was really misleading. That these after a week we reached peak corona uncertainty. They success a turning point. Abbas told us when you either get better or head Vic- I checked with Wakefield I message to say. Can you clarify exactly where you were you? Were you in London the time and she didn't respond so again. The lack of response made me think that again. There's something to this and it was about this time that Neil Ferguson. The scientists that had been so influential in informing. The lockdown had resign because he broke the rules. Headlines for you this morning on seven o'clock one of the government's key corona virus advisors whose work prompted. The lockdown has quit his post for breaking social distancing rule at this point our sources who say why the Jalameed on story yet. This is such hypocrisy Ferguson. His having to resign for quite a minor breach of the rules given what we know Cummings was doing at the time. I can feel their attention because nominate cummings is incredibly significant is basically the most powerful person in Downing Street after Boris Johnson. And that means he's been at the heart of the government's lockdown strategy telling people stay at home save lives protect the NHS so why hadn't published by them. The story had to be absolutely bulletproof. And that's when you realize that pepper CRA at the MIRA was also chasing the same story and you decided to collaborate. That completely changed how we did the story. And all of a sudden we had a very solid story. The real breakthrough came last Friday when we called the police and a promises a statement and a few hours later. They confirmed that they'd had records. Cummings was in Durham and agreed a time with the mirror that we were both going to publish on the dot eight o'clock and we didn't have to wait for the story to appear while we nervous when you press send it was so tense Watching the clock until eight o'clock knowing that we had this kind of bomb that was about to go broom i-it o'clock appeared and the reaction was instant within minutes of course for companies to resign within a few hours. It was leading every news bulletin. Hello and welcome. It's ten o'clock. You're listening to the world tonight. I'm sure and here are your headlines..

"It was quite a sight in the Downing Street Rose Garden with journalists. That in person not waiting for the prime minister but for his chief advisor he began by telling light so in late. What followed was an extraordinary press conference in which Dominic Cummings speaking either. The sound of blaring horns sounded contrite. At first millions of people in this country being suffering thousands of died many are angry about the major about my actions. He went on to say that public anger was from down to a story that had been misreported and yet during a session that lasted over an hour. Cummings confirmed most of the details of the Guardian and mirror exclusive but I revealed how he had traveled from London. Durham and then onto Bana Castle during lockdown regret taking a half hour journey to a causal and for fifteen minutes as you say as I said I think it was a reasonable thing to do. I mean populate and we should just have tracked told and tried to do the whole trip and then and then but but the whole point was not a heartbeat. I'd been extremely ill. My vision had been a bit weird. We're all GONNA go back. My Wife said we should. We should drive down the road and should see if you can actually drive and see if your vision is weird or or if you're okay. There was no regret. No apology and no resignation with continued support from the prime minister. Boris Johnson. I understand why people wish to see To see resume so I think that people will make their make up their minds about for smokers to cummings had to say they explosive story was broken for the Guardian by news. Reports in that weaver had quite a week. Just just trying to keep up with the reaction and the inbox spin exhausting. I know at some just kind of collapse you can tell from my voice.

Yeah Okay but but I do work out a lot but I need to listen to music and I am a podcast fan but I cannot be listening to conversation when my heart rate is at like one sixty. I think most people are that way. The reason I would listen to podcasts working because I need my brain to be distracted from how miserable I am getting out and music wouldn't do it right.

That was me by the way I I can't see you what they can't see your voice. I just picture my voice and this medium not being appropriate to in high intensity. Workout this podcast.

"Even though I have absolutely I'm not taking on new friends. Oh it's exhausting erskine bulls eye so many people go through this and have the language to really identify it. So it's we're learning. I mean it's a type of hoarding. I WANNA be everybody's best friend but I have absolutely no time to follow through with any of this. We need the most high off high chain like lake fingers and do be blood brothers or whatever but it's also you know. I think on some conscious level like with the intrigue stuff. You're also just creating an overwhelming situation for yourself. Are Pressure for your creating future pressure for yourself and you're putting yourself in a big mess that you have to untangle which is just kind of recreating our child circumstances of having to be the adult that manages some big mass origins re recreating the child circumstances of someone very needy needing a lot from you that you couldn't possibly reciprocate yes. Which was a lot of my parents. Were very emotional. I have a borderline personality. Caretake primary caretaker. I call them primary caretaker while your parents. My mother is such a pejorative term. At this point where mother they already like? Roller is but you know it was just like a very needy situation and I think I try to recreate someone needing me really bad now because then I can be in that victims. State of this person needs so much from me. I'm not consciously calculated at all woman any of this happening. I I would describe it as a zest for life in a deep interest in people while it's happening now again in reflection I must acknowledge what's at servicing. Do you think you're poking around for someone's boundaries or just kind of course I'm trying to. Yes yes yes. I'm deep because I'm also I think again. There's so many variables. It'd be really simple to say it. I'm just trying to get everyone's approval that wouldn't be complete enough but yes in the simplest way. You're a comedian. I'm a comedian. The way you and I will Jones around is going to be drastically different than the way. Most people canceled canceled five minutes. Hr in the back of the couch canceled canceled so in some way. I'm always seen someone talking to you. How far can I go? What I think is risky. Can we get here? How what kind of territory can we venture into shore? Yes because I feel most alive when we're talking about something that is terrifying to have made public. How scary can we get that you were the only people in the world now? We've ended against them now. It's US against the whole. You know work all all of our other. People were co workers trying to gain a sense of like a wear the same or familiarity. Like what is the again? This is all chicken and the egg half of it is. I laugh hardest at that when I'm scared. Maximum tension earliest. I enjoy the most. Yes so that's the chicken aspect now. The egg aspect is what else is going out. Why is it that that makes me feel good? Or why desire that? It's worth knowing why that is the state I desire adrenaline out of it. Of course yes. Adrenaline turns into dopamine. Look at all my hobbies. You drove up here. There's nothing here without three hundred horsepower. I if I'm not I always Monica. She hates it if there's not a like pretty present threat of death on the table. It's hard for me to have a good time can be that can be this. Because I'm married. I have a life to protect. And so oh we're dancing around something. That's you know now all of a sudden it's very high ads as far as I can without falling off. Let me see how far I can go? So let's talk about why you're that way you grew up in. Dc Mahmoud for Neiman. Marcus she take public relations for Bloomingdale's and Neiman Marcus and lived half in DC and then this summer in Virginia why Summers Energi there was a lot going on and I would live with my aunts in the summertime in Virginia and I live with them for a couple of years when I was a teenager when she just kinda hit the fan so I kind of went back and forth from this like farm life with animals to living in Georgetown and go into Neiman. Marcus after school with my mom because we didn't have babysitters live and Neiman. Marcus I think that was also maybe. My First. Little drug was shoplifting. Such a good one a lot of people that's the gateway you know. I never knew if because I grew up without money if that was why. Because there's a lot of people with money that shoplift too but it's a pretty solid. Yeah no no ron on rats right. It's it's a pretty solid high and a pretty solid for weeks. You don't know if you're GONNA get found out so you're in constant adrenaline shame. It's a good one. I don't be surveillance cameras. It could at any moment they could find out what kind of things are you like. Little Cranston. Yeah stuff that probably. At the time I thought was a big deal like paper clips from my mom's Co Workers. Office like nothing. Nothing major so my brother and he's five years older than me and so at this time. I think we were eight and thirteen and we went into Hudson's and they had really high end electronics. And we both wanted Sony Walkmans. And we couldn't afford that so he stole one. That was I wanna say it was maybe seventy dollars right and I went. I went to the one hundred thirty dollar auto reverse really expensive when we put them both in our winter jackets. And we're walking out of Hudson's in a security guy stops us. I'm eight so I'm fucking panicked. He saw my brother steal this thing and he then asked me to open up my coat and I opened up my CB winter jacket. And I fold the edge over so you can't see in the pocket where it is at. He looks at me and then he goes. Okay go find your parents until we have your brother in this encapsulates so many reasons. If I were my brother I'd kill me. Because that was the story of our life like he got busted in I got away in that just kept repeating itself finding all Matt yes and I. I was so panicked that I walked like one hundred yards down the mall than I sat down on a bench. I put the Walkman on the bench and then I got up and I walked away and then for the next four hundred steps. Someone's going to tap me on the shoulder and say here's your Walkman and then I'm going to get arrested and the whole nine years. Yes very memorable heightened. Experience at a data leave a mark. I'm obsessed with how people shoplift. Oh tell me someone that I work with this comedian. He used to work at Sephora and he said the way Women Steel Lipsticks. Is they come in and they twist up the lipstick and bite it off and put it in their mouth along walking out with those foul mouth back in and then bite off another one and lean feel it would be Tactically pleasing to bite through. You know this really expensive face cream and this woman returned it and said I'm returning this. I Want my money back. And he opened. It smelled it and had to save. Ma'am this is manny's no no no not even like the motion feller something they come in hoop it out put manny's then and then try to return. Yeah okay now when you were going to so good. Good how Virginia and you're living with auntie where you would different person there. Did you have like a different character? You tried on started my very deep connection and relationships to animals. Okay how to farm. And that's what I what. Oh this is a relationship. I can do one where they can't talk back and they need me you know. She had horses. She had dogs and I was alone a lot there. My sister did not come with me. And I think that's where I formed basically just the ability to be solitary and make imaginary friends and you know make imaginary characters in a journal and then just have relationship with animals and be alone which I think I probably was incredible for your future creativity and just being able to be a comedian on the road. Eighty cities a year and be alone. All the time right which a lot of people can't be alone I think that's when it crystallized like a loan for days at a time and be fine. I mean it's not healthy and that's why I gotta go to meetings to make contact with people and connect with people but I was alone a lot and I would sort of check out into these fantasy worlds and I would you know make these little characters in my head and these little stories you know and I think that was when I first started writing. I didn't know that's what I was doing. Yeah and so when you would return to DC FOR THE SCHOOL. Year was the adjustment tired. I was never a hate on people in our business or like I was never popular in school at at always annoys me but people. Maybe it's true. I don't know I can't generalize about it but I just was alone. A lot is a kid. I remember being alone and making music videos in my mirror and organizing Kuzma. I was just alone a lot. And that's just something people don't really talk about a lot. I think in recovery just in this moment where people are you know deconstructing and examining themselves. It was an absence will now more than ever. We recognize the power essential -ness of community. It's one of the pillars of any recovery for anything we'll be community and because on a sort of primordial level when you're alone a lot you know our reptilian brain thinks we've been exiled from our pack our tribe. You know I mean that's why they say you know living alone as it can be so bad for you because on some primordial level. We know we don't have the protection of of the pack and you start producing less serotonin. I mean it's very real. Do I have it that you had a half brother or you have and it was. I assume through father. Yes sir. Okay so your dad met mom and then had you and your sister but you've already come with older brother had come older brother. Yes okay but then they got divorced at five. Yeah Wow okay so these are very that anything on the Internet.

"cummings" Discussed on Pretty Big Deal with Ashley Graham

"A situation if you find yourself embarrassed about other people's behavior you think you need to take care of everybody and deal with their consequences on the consequences of others if you find yourself in relationships or friendships that don't really make you feel good but you feel you have to stay in them. Codependence use words like we have to go to this thing. I have to get him a gift have to go to this party. We do a lot of things out of obligation because we're worried that we're going to lose the approval of others or not be like if we don't go. We put everybody else's needs ahead of our own. So when did you find out that you had codependency. I really put it together when I was became a boss for the first time time and I found that I was hiring all my friends even though none of them were qualified and I was trying to help you know yes I wanNA give everybody a job which there's something to be said for that you know and I still am able to do that. A heart of gold foil but now but that doesn't ultimately end up being the kind thing to do because it blows up and becomes a big mess and that person doesn't learn about earning it and consequences and what have you so I've learned that we take care of everybody. We'll take care of ourselves and that you know we don't bring personal feelings into work and we don't do things out of guilt obligation and we don't confuse love with pity. Sometimes we we do things out of pity instead of out of mutual respect or we conflate love and pity and kindness is not always kind right and being nice as not always being nice so here you are. You're a boss. So when we do a nice thing and hire someone that shouldn't necessarily have the job and then we resent them the whole time because they're not doing it right and then everybody else on staff has to clean up the mess. That's not really kind as an. It's making a big mess because you wanna be like or you want to do the Nice thing so that was tricky. I found myself not being able to fire people. I found myself not being L. to give honest feedback because I was too worried about making someone feel bad or them feeling rejected and I went To Rehab for a family therapy group group and I brought a giant thing of protein bars and clothes and cash like to help the person in my life that was in Rehab and there there are no but are you doing. You're trying to fix addiction with with protein bars. Get Out of here you know. I found myself so desperate to fix somebody else in rescue askew somebody else that I wasn't actually doing the right thing for the person so you know. We went around trying to help people all day as a way to get out of our own feelings. Something that I heard early in a twelve step program was people pleasing as a form of asshole ARY can. Sometimes it's selfish because it's not really what the person needs. The person might need the person you might need to. If you find yourself in the middle of someone's relationship drama all the time and listening to them every night talk about over and over about the made us stop talking about it and they need you to actually draw boundary you know and or say no so. I found myself enabling a lot of people with addictions and personality disorders and went to my first twelve sub alanon meaning was a game changer. Totally am changer. Wow 'cause I found that whereas alcoholics can be addicted to alcohol. Codependence are addicted to people who are a mess. So what are these programs. Look like these programs programs are basically free therapy and I see so many solvent rich famous people now talking about therapy and that's so cool. The one one thing relieving out is that it's three hundred dollars an hour and not everybody has access to that so you have no no problems so I think as someone who did not grow up with money I really appreciate the fact that it's free and open available to anyone and it's not elitist and there's also people from all walks of life who are in their keeping you humble and what's so great to me about twelve step programs is that you know when we share our shortcomings. Cummings when we share vulnerabilities. See someone like what you're doing right now. Not you're able to go okay. I'm not crazy and you're tearing you're able to have grace and someone's not judging urging me and I'm not a disgusting piece of Shit you know you're not going when you say like. I really want to text this X.. who was often? Immune cheated on me but I kind of want to reach out to him anyway and people go in there. And you're like okay. I'm not crazy. So these this inner critic that we have of I'm a failure amass. All of these things goes away because you have a group group of people that look at us saying been there and you talk about codependency landing. Use them pretty terrible relationships. Nasty stuff you learned from that codependence penance. We tend to shape shift in order to make a relationship work We tend to Make sure you know. The temperatures always seventy degrees auditioned for provable every day Whatever you want to eat? Eat Your Vegan Vegan. You eat meat. I mean we've you like Mexican and I like Mexican anything to sort of get approval of the person we want to be in the relationship with we ended up compromising our values morals boundaries and bottom lines in order to make a relationship work so I found myself in the relationship. I'm in now. Is the first time experimented with. Hey I need to call me every day. If you can't. That's totally fine. If you think I'm crazy that's totally fine but I finally know what I need. And that's something I need. And how empowering that you can say that to the person you're dating eating and he was so wild because I thought he'd go. Yuck you're crazy bitch psycho and he was just like Oh. Thank you for being so clear like. I don't WanNa be guessing what you want. He was trying to play. Okay cool by texting and didn't want to call too much and I was like I would like to hear from you every day on the phone. Call so in recovery. What we do is we find out what we actually want? And then how ask for it and how to away. If we're not getting it I love which is maybe something I should have gotten as a child and a lot of people do but if you grew up in an environment where you weren't parents in in a certain way or or were in an environment where nobody really said what they felt and everyone was like no. I'm fine everything's good. That's how my family was. When there were problems? Nobody addressed it and everybody pretended they were fine when they weren't and so. That's what I learned. I learned kind of dishonest communication. That doesn't benefit anybody. So you talk about a lot of problems news you do. I mean I. It's kind of awesome. It's awesome go because you're seeing then because everybody needs to talk about these things and you just just so happened to have a few I open. I see the most exciting thing in my lifetime is happening right now. which is that? Women are becoming humming bosses and they have shows with five hundred cameras and they are making money and they have employees. And they're getting in the workforce and we. You weren't really parented to be able to manage conflict. We were parented to establish harmony. And make sure everything was okay and make sure men's feelings were okay and that women were mad at us. That's how we've been conditioned you know and that was a big part of my codependence. Sound the Horn on this so much because it helps us once we get these opportunities. We're fighting so oh Hartford we're not gonNA screw them up. I try to be friends with everyone. Know making sure when likes US exactly and I think that that's very important because a lot of women do have that kind of it's like a ticking time bomb them Yep and I have to remind myself to like what would a man do I do I ask myself now you ask you that. I asked myself that some sometimes I think that way what would a man do. Let me how do I not do that or or I do. I in terms of going comedian. I'm like no worry about being friends with everybody. You know. Yes not all men today that Hashtag not all men but I do think that that we do want to make sure nobody's feelings are hurt and the key is managing being sensitive and being emotionally emotionally intelligent without being codependent exact. There's intelligent that's the key. I like that if If an employee is underperforming because they don't feel seen or heard or the workflow doc flow. Yeah isn't something that works with the way their brain is wired. It's always helped to go. Hey how can we make this. So you know we're able to have more harmony without going and what's going on with your family and your how can I fix your marriage and all that other. Let's go get drinks and hang out on the highway so in your latest special. That's called. Call Whitney Cummings. Can I touch it every day. It in my head. I'm like I know it's such a weirdly like triple entendre title. And the reason I called it that is because I had this robot made for the show ridiculous and I talk a lot about sexual harassment in the show how men were grabbing acids and you know being inappropriate but when my robot there were like and I was like where is all this when it comes to a human woman like. Why don't you don't ask that when you you know so? I just thought that was interesting. That is so so where I saw the robot. Come out watching your your special. I mean first first of all I was like really looked like you. I want the makeup. It was the hair it was. It was creepy wild wild about this because I feel like your fans. Are you in this world. I don't think she looks like me really. Here's why we a little cross eyed. We cross-eyed she was a little cross up totally did that. Her one for is we're fixing. It was an optical surgery surgery because homelessness she cost. Oh honey can I touch it She's fifty grant fifty to seventy yeah. She's getting her eyes are going to be cameras soon. And we're working on more facial muscles so that her smile isn't all like creepy. which is probably I? You spent twenty five minutes of your special with her and by the way I have. It's no joke. I've already lapped her. In terms of age in the Europe had her. So we're adding little wrinkles around here so we looked the the same year ago and I haven't slept so now I I look like old age APP version of her aging her up a little bit but something fascinating that I found out and we only see ourselves through mirrors so we don't really know what we look like you know in addition to whatever other just Moorefield we're struggling with. She doesn't creep me out because I don't see myself that way. That's how other people see me got it so you don't think you look like that's right. It's not why I still like. She looks a lot like I understand what. You're saying. All optical illusions. Everyone thinks she looks exactly like me. Accept me and it there was a weird because you think you look better or worse I think I look just different okay. This experience has been pretty pretty therapeutic for the body. dismore feared that I deal with. Because you have talked about this I had eating disorders my whole life. I now have disordered eating. I think it's dangerous to say like I cured my eating disorder so it means you're constantly thinking you bet it's still but it's not plaguing your life exactly. I have thoughts come up. Sometimes that are like you should have a diet coke for dinner and then I'm like no you shouldn't whereas I used to think that was a good idea. I now think it's a bad idea. So I think for anyone to say you know oh just in terms of how eating disorders work because so much of it for me was about control and so when things get a little out of control and I get a little busy and I don't have time to go to the gym. Sometimes the brain will go. Oh Yeah you should just have like lifesavers and nothing else go now..

"cummings" Discussed on Pretty Big Deal with Ashley Graham

"I can hear that this is about just good planning and I'm very like I like to plan because I think planning is freedom. I also found myself around thirty thirty one years old lowering my standards for guys because I felt the ticking clock and I was like ads fine. What's three ex wives since you're excused? You don't like totally totally doesn't have a job. What some Guy With Three D. U. is? I'm so judgmental found myself. You know lowering my standard because that fear started creeping in studio. You start doing that math okay. If we go on day tomorrow in a year we'll move in together and then we have to get married. I just that you know and I was doing that and I was reading. I'll be thirty five. And then what if and I was also hearing a lot about women who were trying so hard to conceive the second they stopped trying. Yeah I don't know the science illness this correct me in the comments but there is something about our bodies when we stopped releasing cortisol and adrenaline. We can conceive better because our bodies body's not in fight or flight trying so hard to conceive right right so a lot of women that I heard eggs. They had an easier time conceiving solely because they had an insurance policy. Let's see we can always use X.. So here you are. You got your insurance policy pressure off. We only just more pressure so once I found out how much money it was. I felt a different kind of pressure pressure but I also felt like this is an investment in myself. This is a business decision. It is such a miracle what happens to your psyche. When you freeze your eggs it I started booking tours? I started you know being relationships not out of fear I might standards for a guy went up. It was miraculous. took away this timeline. And this a couple of years to find the person see you are smart. You're got into you know it. It was a very fear based decision that ended up alleviating my fears. You know the only thing that bound me out. I got a little bit of fight of a fight with fertility doctors. Because he was like. Oh you know so if you have you a kid thirty-seven geriatric pregnancy and I was like let me stop you right there. Apparently anything after thirty five. They call geriatric. Yes I've heard this. I've heard all of like I know way more about pregnancy. Now than I I ever since this on Mike Learn something about but this is this is awesome and do more people need to be taught people need to be talking about. I think there's there's maternity leave there can also be freezing. Leave you get more money as as a company as if you let your employees freeze their eggs and arranged for that time off. Because that's the this is the thing nobody told me about egg freezing. It is relatively time consuming. You know you gotta go in and get those sonograms every other day. Is You know everything properly. I don't know the terms. You GotTa Bring Your Shot Rat with you. It's kind of fun to just feels kind of bad to be like stabbing yourself in the stomach all the time and then you have to go get them extracted so it was for me like three to four month the process and I remember being in the car like crying just being leg shows Sabir told me and here I am. You know. 'cause biology a sexist list. It is but you're also a huge fan of the brain. I think it was a disgrace that we are not taught the way our brains work work the chemicals and neuro chemicals that we emit because when women emit certain chemicals were called crazy and psycho and insane and women take that shame on and they take that to mean that they've failed in some way or they're crazy and they internalize that narrative. And I just I made a movie about Corologis because I really wanted to show women and men to be able to go. I'm not crazy I'm just omitting adrenaline and Cortisol female brain and this is a fighter physics. The name of Hercules. Yes the female brain and I wrote it. With Neal Brennan co-creator Chapelle show brilliant comedian. So great so it's very balanced. It's not like a lady movie. I have men coming up to me on the street going. This movie saved my marriage because I now understand that when my wife freaks out she's Adrenal is producing cortisol and I say you know let's talking three days as when cortisol has worn off developing of vocabulary for Noor Chemicals. I just think it's such a shame that we don't learn that you're saving marriages and relationships. Eh broken up a couple to Joe I love you know. Yeah I just I get very defensive when Glenn Women are called crazy or insane or psycho or any micromanage sensitive. I think it's really important to learn the evolution of the brain. Gene epigenetics EPA genetic. Imprinting you know. Can you tell me about this. Attic imprinting is so important because it sounds it sounds nice I like it I like told me about how the chemicals that the mother releases while the fetus this is in Utero. The fetus becomes addicted to those chemicals. Okay so give me an example so I found myself as a teenager constantly being attracted attracted to dramatic situations dramatic relationship all the gossip on the playground and then into my twenties dating really unavailable people people that call it caused me adrenaline cheat on me. Whatever and then I started learning about EPA genetic imprinting which is when the neuro chemicals of the mother are omitted in Utero? The child is born addicted addicted to those chemicals so I was born addicted to cortisol and adrenaline. My mother was in a really bad marriage. When I was conceived? So chances are I came out of the womb. I like that whatever. The mother is addicted to is passed into the neurochemical so the brain and that liberated me from going okay. What's nature and what's nurture some some of these things I can? That are my part. I need to go to therapy. I need to fix that thing but also I got this honestly this adrenaline addiction because adrenaline turns into dopamine. It's like a drug Drama is like a drug and I became addicted to it and my mom's belly and it's not my fault and I can now have my brain twos who's changed my tolerance to adrenaline. So okay to question. Yes ma'am do you blame your mother and how do you deal with it. I don't blame my mother. I have nothing but compassion for my mother mother because that's beautiful not only compassionate such it makes me feel a little bit better reckless forgiveness because that generation didn't know they didn't have the tools and the science wasn't even available back. Then you know and the fact that she was staying in a chaotic relationship to try to keep things serene with her kids in to try to protect her kids breaks my heart every day. You know because it's it's just a reminder that when we take care of ourselves we actually take care of everybody else you know her instinct was gotta take care of. The kids. Got To to stay in this chaotic relationship and then the tragic irony is that that actually is you know sometimes harder and how do you deal with all of these issues now today. Yeah I mean I did after I learned about neurology because both my parents had strokes and so I had to talk neurologist. All Day every day to understand what happened I have a lot of addiction in my family as well. Well and when you're struggling with you know people that you love that are suffering addiction and learning about neurology and addiction. Works is the only thing that will stop your heart from getting broken every day so I had this kind of crash course in how to hack your brain so for me. I worked so hard to stay away from dramatic situations to lower my adrenaline in cortisol levels. I try to stay instagram. I try to stay off gossip sites I I was gonna say like instagram kind of I mean constantly. Try to self-doubt southwards. Who is this person dating me up? I I have someone that handles your social do good for someone. I outsource. Outsource it to somebody else's a form of self care I put my phone Gray scale which makes it black and white a lot of addictive about it is the color. Oh I know no. I didn't even know you were this ten Jimmy Cocoa Spray Tan allow. No right Jimmy Coco. I'm fine I just have to accept Ed and you'll just look so healthy like you sleep. Well no I'm not sleeping. Is it hard to sleep with that. Yeah you have like a body pillow. Oh God and my husband. He's he's like anymore. I'm like I'M A. I'm terrified of being pregnant. I know uh-huh epigenetics terrified. 'cause I'm like no one can trust me out when I'm pregnant but it isn't stressed out because it does like you said Goto the baby and like people have told me like don't in stressful situations. But I work out. I try to eat. Well I am going with my cravings. My cravings have been really healthy which is a blessing. And I'm just trying to work. We're can stay focused. Yeah and also like gain information about my baby but the I try to step away from fear because this is just this has been going on like this is how we got here thousands of years right before and it's going to continue to do this without doctors and now documentary that Ricky Lake did the the business you have to watch. It is so good. I read the Niamey Wolf Book about the Force Assyrian Sections and stuff and I almost had a heart attack. It is really ridiculous. How Syrians are a business? Yes unless I mean there are the moments where like you have to have them. But it's a business right and so you and you have no fear around this so after seeing the documentary now I just want to have an at home birth like I wanna be able to stand and squat and push my baby out and pull it out out of me and put it right on my chest by it out. Is that how it works. Yeah you push the head out and then as the shoulders kind of coming out. They're like okay. Go down and pull your baby out. And then you like you're squatting pull it out and you're like a miracle you're just like glad you're alive. I know people kissed their babies and their lips get stuck up to the faces like the Christmas story like the tongue and the phone poll will not that stuck But we could probably go for but I. This is so wonderful to see the and I think that like visibility for women that are pregnant while they're working is so important because I just my still having my head you have to stop down for a year. No that's that's an old story that I have in my head. I had that too. I had it too and I had like you have to have a baby in a hospital. You have to have all those things. I am working up until this due date and then after that I'm gonNA take like eight weeks off this. We're just GONNA go from there. I'm going to have a kid on my tent. We're just GONNA GO YUP Yup. This is very exciting inspire. I I just think the pregnant I can hardly carry a purse. You'll be fine. I WanNa talk about your book and other stories or other lives other law. There's so many lies a lot litany of life. But I like how you're so open about codependency. Thank you and I feel like my readers. My readers reading you guys let I feel like my viewers and listeners audio books most people get the audio but I feel like they can really learn something from your experiences. co-dependency you know. I've been so public about it because I think it is it. Is this epidemic that sort of everywhere but hard to identify and it's part of the narrative of I'm just crazy I'm a psycho and a lot of people who are codependent. Are the type of people all who wouldn't occur to them to think about themselves because we are the type of people pleasers who are only thinking about others. Rescuing martyring explain like what some examples are sure. So we're like what exactly it is like charcoal definition so codependency the definition that I work off of which I didn't make up. It is the inability to tolerate the discomfort of others. Yes a lot of people. Think of co-dependency couples who can't stop hanging out. That could be that. But that's also a litany of other things but if you find yourself self obsessed with someone else's perception of you if you find yourself thinking that you know you need to take care of other people's feelings if you have a hard time saying no if you find yourself being addicted a to control always needing to control.
