He and his team have been helping business to business service companies and marketing agencies grow since two thousand fourteen. Is, specialty is in helping companies, set sales appointments with their ideal prospects, as well as establishing them as an authority within their industry. That's what we're going to be talking about today. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thanks Diane. I'm really excited to talk all things Li generation and responsible use of Lincoln. I love that. Okay. We're GONNA start with the responsible use of lake debt. So, will you please explain the listeners what you mean by that? I think the easier way to explain this would be to explain I the irresponsible use of linked in, which is what's actually a much more pervasive, right? which is the type of things that your listeners are probably. So sick of getting into their inboxes, which is somebody connects with them and minutes to a day. Later, they received some sort of template pitch into their inbox that is not targeted at them at all, and it doesn't even into account whether that person might need or appreciate what's being said to them, and that's I would say the approach that about eighty to ninety percent of people who are doing quote unquote lead generation on linked in are taking these days and it's really unfortunate because linked in is a great place to connect with other. To specifically for beat the B but just other people in business a great place to learn as a great place to network and Mrs even doubly. So in the Times of reduce networking in Covid, nineteen times. So I really feel like a lot of people are doing themselves a disservice by reaching out in such a way that makes people remember them as the type of person who did not approach the other party in a way. That is respectful. And unlike other channels such as for example, cold email in cold calling has been around for a but with those, it's difficult to actually see directly who it is who's Essen you Or contacting you without doing your own homework and trying to click through and find out more information with them on linked in your face and your profile and everything connected to your company is right there visible. So when you reach out to someone and you don't put your best foot forward, it's easier for them to remember that to walk away with a bad impression of who you are. So, there's my you know quick explanation of what not to do but I wanNA run through. We can go into a lot more detail on each of these specific things but. My version in my philosophy on what works well in what is responsible way to use? Lincoln for the generation encompasses a couple of different things. I is growing your network simply connecting with people who are, either they could be a good fit for you to have as clients, but to advance your network and the people that you know we can get connected with. Linked in has a different way of showing things to people and using their algorithm than the other social networks so. For example, on facebook if you scroll through your newsfeed, you see your friends and maybe you see something from friends of friends but that's about it. That's where it stops unlinked in. You'll scroll through your newsfeed and you'll see your connections and then you also see your connections connections and your connections connections connections. It's kind of the best type of exponential growth that we can hope for in two thousand twenty because the other types of exponential growth that we've been experienced in have all been related to the virus and that's not. What we really want but then is really a multiplier effect. When you ask somebody to your network, your first degree network, their whole first degree network now becomes your second degree network. So if you add someone who has a large network themselves. Just added maybe ten thousand people to your second degree network. This is ten thousand more people who have a possibility to see your content when you post it and linked in being the content deficient platform that it is I. Believe the statistic is that less than one percent of their user base actually posting regularly they're showing this content to so many more people than you can reach. On then on the other social networks,

You know they just ran such limited labs or they were looking for like pathologically. So you know for my stomach loading, they would do like a dusk opinion and say, Oh, you're fine. You know or they'll do a colonoscopy for some people and if there's no. Raging issue there than then you're fine. So.

Just getting really frustrated feeling kind of hopeless and like no one was listening to me and then I found functional medicine and I was living in Atlanta at the time and I found this big center that did all they Davis Functional Medicine and I it was amazing.

They were doing in the conventional medicine model plus they were using different lab ranges, which is such a big part of this. and.

So after working with functional, Medicine Practitioner for was you know a few months I mean right away I started to feel better but it took about a year and then even as a practitioner I've learned more things and tested myself rather things and found there was other things I was struggling with but you know overall the point being is that there was. You know the conventional medical model, which was me looking fine to them, and then the functional medicine model, which is I found all of these issues and had a work on them right exactly

In this episode there was a little bit of skipping which you might notice I'm sorry in advance for that there was nothing that I could do on the back end to fix it. But you know covert issues and internet, and we're just doing the best we can and I'm just happy that I honestly have Internet right now 'cause there were a couple weeks during this pandemic which I had none and you guys had no episodes.

Body acceptance vs. liberation
"So Johnson is the founder of the Intuitive D. and she has an amazing new book about intuitive eating out that we're GONNA get into so last episode that she was on I. Think is episode eighty three a Lincoln in the show, but you should definitely listen to that because we talked about misconceptions about intuitive eating and we talked about health at every size. Like Y. You're saying got into this work so welcome back. Thank you so much Dana I still can't believe that it's been a year since we last talk. That is absolutely nuts but I'm glad were chatting again. Will it's funny because it feels like this spring has felt like four years, but like an actual year ago. Like last summer doesn't feel that long ago. Yeah, it's just like a time warp. I don't even know. I was just GonNa say it does. It definitely does feel like a time work? So one of the things that I wanted to hug today, and we're going to jump right in just so we can get straight to the meat of it. Since you have a new book that's out and we like obviously WanNa talk about that, but the things that you talk about in the book that I think is so so helpful for people to understand whether you're new to this whole body, positivity, Acceptance Movement, or you're like kind of dipping your toes intuitive eating your like, but wait like. Isn't this what it isn't like? Earn people being unhealthy and everything like that. So could you talk about some of the? Biggest myths or misconceptions about like body acceptance in the body positivity movement. I think the first one that comes to mind if it's just like so common when when I'm talking with clients about this is like this perception that you know body acceptance work body, positive works should result in like you feeling really good about your appearance or like loving. No way that your body looks loving your the roles and you know whatever all the stuff. It loving, your solid cellulite, and like while obviously, there's nothing inherently wrong with trying to strive for like having a good relationship to the appearance of your body. I think that like. Really like the meat of what we need to all work on shift towards is. Kind of having a bit more of a neutral relationship to the appearance of her body at really like spending, less time and energy on the appearance of our body are thinking about the appearance of body So that's kind of I think that's like the first thing that I think when I think of the misconception around that work. And can you talk about? Why we're all so obsessed with our appearance, and it's funny, 'cause like. We women men everybody like our whole culture around the world. Really can you can say is to some degree like. With appearance America definitely a lot more right, but that then gets tied into like health and morality and Food and manipulating your appearance, but then it's funny because we see that Barry overtly in like Diet, culture, fitness, culture, and everything like that, but then it even translates into like this bastardisation of body positivity that it's like. Oh, well I have to love myself all the time and I find not loving myself in everything about me all the time. That I must be failing. Right yeah, no, it's! It's so true, and it's like I feel like I mean I I don't have the widest. Lens on this because I've grown up in this culture, but also like it's very clear that like we have like culture going on, and we're constantly exposed to imaging, and like the ideal quote, unquote imaging. Everyone's closing the the best selby. Constantly so and and we're just inundated all day every day from every angle, and not to mention were inundated with. One particular kind of body over and over again, and it's like if you don't once before you realize that that that's what's happening. It's just like okay, so obviously. That's I should look like, and it's just very like subconscious thing that's going on but yeah I think culturally like we're just so fixated on On appearance because of this imaging of or being inundated with all the time and I, also kind of feel like. It's. I don't know it's almost like escaping deeper stockholder like on an individual level, but it's like we're all kind of like running from our we're. We're so disconnected for emotions that like if we just focus on like okay. Well I've heard for perfect. My appearance show up perfectly that I'll be happy. Great the perfect you know. Yeah definitely I, mean 'cause we know as clinicians right like a lot. A lot of people will use dieting or exercise, or this kind of like obsession, or some people call it like drive right to constantly improve themselves, and this goes beyond dieting and bodies to lick. This goes along with perfectionism. It can go into work, and it can go into. You know really every of our lives, but when we're so let's call it a nice word that people say driven right to go in pursuit of any of these things. One of the deeper reasons that people tend to do that is because they are running from something. You're running from emotions that you don't WanNa feel you're running from like maybe past traumas or like, and some people would call that coping mechanism, but then the farther at that goes, it's not necessarily a healthy or helpful coping mechanism anymore because you're just running from those problems right and especially with something like dieting that ends up being this thing where it. Explodes in your face. Right like you're using this coping skills like. GonNa make myself smaller. I'm going to stick to the Diet. I'm going to not take anymore. Whatever and then like you find yourself physiologically, you're driven to eat the cake and like do all the things the opposite about it literally explodes in your face, and you're like. Oh, I just don't have the willpower. Oh, just like suck. I need to try harder, so it's like you end up in like crazy like cycle and thinking that you're the problem in that cycle.
"dana i" Discussed on Tales from A Butterfly
"I kind of like but you know just minutes ago. She wanted everybody to love everybody so after she said that I took a deep breath and I said. I wanted to go to this private school when I was younger, and we had a blue uniform dress and a light blue shirt, and a red tie came with the uniform and every single time Dana I would put that tie on and clip it in here.

It's terrible feeling will can I ask you a question because this is neither the time nor. How how! Calumny I'll I'll put it down. I! I'm just curious when you transition or for while you're writing the simpsons. And all your experience was stand up and all of your the highs and lows of stand up and. Triumphant scary parts. How did that all come into play? A lot of writing on a TV show. When was the simpsons? Animated show. When did you write far? I was on from two thousand and two thousand eight seasons, Thirteen, whatever twenty one or something and What had happened. Yeah, I started off young and then I in the in in the nineties like the mid ninety. Four to two thousand. I was hot young. You know working. I'd have a pilot every year you know and I was a guest on every Sitcom like. Have you ever watch any sitcoms? Ninety s just a matter of time before it. Got Roseanne Seinfeld the nanny any. Eventually I always the same character. ABORS. Face smug. smug Dick. Yeah I was I was literally killing. I was fragile Frankie on Seinfeld Jerry's childhood friend that gave him a van that he didn't want and I got sad and went into Central Park in dug a hole in it in it. Was the famous Seinfeld's van son of Sam. Sounded like. And I get that. But? You know I had a lot of pilots. You Know Dana and They just kept adding exclamation point. Yeah, EXAC. Linwood boomer who? We I came up with the name as a joke, and he insisted that we keep it. No. This is a terrible title. and. He's like no, it's great. It was the aptly named Nice try. Bob Cat. Had Bob Cat special called? Don't watch this show. And we both yeah are we were wearing our self esteem? But but those titles seem like you're protecting yourself. Yeah, absolutely, it's not. It's. Totally. It's what Comedians tank auditions. Because they're not in control like they are on stage, so they go like no, no, no, you're not gonNA. Tell me I'm no good. I'll tell you I'm no. The latest Ray Schimmel rest in peace told his story about an addition where we walked in said. Where do you want me to fail from the director? The director said you just did Oh. Wow, and that was it. I think so yeah. I know having now been on the other side of that process, right? They want you to be the personal I. They they they WANNA be. They want you to eliminate any doubt from their mom and they want you to be the person because they're not. As a comedian especially. I'm not an actor I'm a comedian that learned how to add right I learned how to act long after I started professionally. Time I. Know they want you to be there? Not Judging you. They want you to be the person so they're done they. If you're the guy, I can go exactly. Yeah, but it's terrible. It's terrible written. auditioning is very little to do with acting. One is a one is an art and one is a craft. I forget where we're going with this. Why didn't I bring a cue cards? I needed bullet points. SCHIMMEL store. They told the Schimmel story about like you're talking about you're talking about you're talking about. A lot of yeah, at a lot of pilots, always working with another writer in Lynnwood and I came up with Nice. Try. Lynnwood then went on to create Malcolm in the middle. Jas Rich Stale. And I came up with Dana, and then chase went onto the simpsons for. and then I thought well I'd like to just try one and I'd like to try to write one myself. And it happened at a very interesting time as was in the, it was in the late nineties I was just gotten engaged. The comedy boom that I had surfed. Right was just abating. It was just Kinda. Going fallow right I wrote this pilot and get picked up to get made. I wrote an Jay Kogen another simpsons writer. came in. We shop. The pilot called world on a string. It was a great premise and it was. The. Basically Seinfeld in the World of pee wee's playhouse like it was a hyper reality, but a very conventional sitcoms and hyper real. Yeah. It was really good at very proud of it. It's up on by Patriot on page if you listen to. which I only put up because Jay Kogan was just on my show. But I really I found that I really. Writing. and I got a different sense. I'm telling you nothing you don't know. But I I had a different sense of satisfaction from it, and it is different. Yeah, I mean obviously because it's not just for you performance. And you can something that seems like hard like it's like all these pilots. I was the young comedian, so we're going to set you up with an adult. Whoever it is you're going to sell. Come and watch you and then you. They'll go away and do what an adult does. Handed to you into a word doc. Yeah, exactly and we'll be meeting a show runner yet. So weird marriage in a way, isn't it? It's almost like speed dating like it's awful. You have these meetings with the and you have to see yeah. Yes tear and they were great. I mean I'm. Friends with all of these you know, it's still a scary kind of proposition to go into I. think yeah, it is, it will yeah, and back then it was just like because it was the height of Seinfeld and friends, and everybody loves Raymond Kings Queens. It was it was just the bureau comedian. It was just a money candidate..

Yes, Brian, Kelly, often signs, autographs, ed, Harris or bobby. That's his curse. But it's great to see you. Of course we're excited to talk to you because you've had a connection with the Conan show in addition to being a great comedian, an extensive career writing for television as well, but we love to start with your CONAN connection. I have a couple of CONAN connections. To Conan the man We're both from Irish families in Massachusetts. Both worked might be related could be. We're a little more down in the dirt, then Conan's. They're pretty good tries to make it sound like he grew up in. Tumble fighting. But a gritty part of Cambridge. Yeah, exactly, that's yeah. It's like the sketchy color mind. Bro Brookline which I think is over the border. So I grew up by Wister, I grew up in the OH. Yes and And then we both wrote on the simpsons. Right right right right, so we have our connection and then yeah I. I did the show in the in the in the very early days. I Guess Ninety six for me, May. Twenty six. Day's. comedy I was very young.

"A. okay on point one welcome the one of the only doctor Dana I need a pleasant good afternoon how are you you knew I'm well how are you doing today I'm doing well today you are right and and Dr Damon need as she can she's hasn't earned doctor of education in instructional leadership from Argosy university a masters of arts degree and Christian ed she's a woman as a writer a creative theologian difficult education masters of arts in the tropical ours and just goes on and on she's a member of the popular culture association tell us why Dr Dame Anita as we talk about women and men all soul but this Wonder Woman complex tell us why you feel as we look at your life your background why is this connection with culture so important today the culture it's so important today in our lives because if you look around culture is everywhere and it's in everything that we do and a lot of times just either from that that church perspective we think that our culture sometimes is the only culture however if you look at television show that you listen to the radio if you go online on social media you see a lot of church culture in popular culture and so I think the two can live together and I say that because we have to understand that culture is a major push forward for us to be able to know that our lives are connected to other people's lives you know what I'm saying I think that you know culture it everywhere you can't escape it you know you and in order to connect to people you have to connect the culture because people are in culture you know we're we're creating culture all the time whether we know we're creating it or not so if you can't be connected there and you know where where is the culture where does the culture god so you have to be connected to culture in order to understand and know what culture is sponsored respect to give us a working definition of culture well I say culture is a little bit of everything and we talked about this in my class and I don't get it why definition but I think culture is everything that we do with everything that we are you are if our food is our television show it's the way that we walking somewhere we called it the way that we show up in the yard you know so it's a lot of different things there is no wind subject a definition for culture but we are not sure you can make culture you know just like Beyonce say you know we are going to create is just one example her own culture she has the B. acts you know so there are things that we are back you know we try to give the definition of who we are in the world of culture what what what is comes to the black culture it is a sign that forced all the black college all my god our culture is so rich you know from the things that we do in church to how we so how we talk the black culture is so rich even on the way back we have this kind of binoculars that you know holy we understand it's the it's the way that we talk about black culture is so rich and I think that's why a lot of people try to appropriate sometimes the black culture because it is so rich you know we we I don't want to say that we're chameleons but we can't be who we are where we are all the time and that's something I think they're very unique about black people that you know is not you know our counterparts on hand you know some say it and the black culture in and of itself is sold which installed you know hardly with Armenia everything that we do everything that we are you know it just believe everywhere so you'll see a little little bit of art in every state you know we are the culture creators you know so if part of black culture is concerned black culture is popular culture black culture is American culture where everything that's the number to call is for all four eight nine two twenty seven oh three Dr Dame Anita is here I am a professor of culture all woman is of the ology are she's an educator and and she talks about a lot of times in her in her work she deals with culture among you and also among women when we talk about this whole idea of Wonder Woman women just doing a lot being a lot what what comes to your mind when you think about that Wonder Woman Jeff what you said Jeff you know I call it you know do when it's ready Riley I don't know if you look at the denture Riley a baby face all right knee but sometimes as women we are doing the most because we have the most to do if that makes sense and that that Wonder Woman complex is you know it's really something that you know we don't really get skate because you know you can't escape being a mom is your mom you can't escape being a white you're white you can't escape being a female and I will you know are having a conversation with someone the other day we were talking about how even in the midst of this pandemic you still cannot stop being as a woman all those different roles and things you have to be and so on that Wonder Woman complex can sometimes give up because we are doing the most because we have the most to do well that's good let's talk about women wholeness and wellness are coming up as Dr Dame Anita right here on on point with one goal in Stoke's radio news and talk

in is dirty Whitey tight is wearing a wife beater and drinking a Natty light his like here you go on listen here you pilot meet I enter Han stop off if and progressive anti gun advocates are always the most sexist are they not so I'm just all right they are mad and they're gonna be lashing out at everybody because they wanted violence they want to violence because that's what they do there were people who were who were complaining about dudes wearing just scarves over their mounts because they were so cold and all the people who had no problem at all whatsoever with the NT four where their masks while they were burning buildings down now are suddenly like well Hey it would lead to dis people should not be wearing a face covering sat up good heavens series people I was also looking at there were a couple of and there were a couple Hollywood peeps out there some of what one of these guys he's not a good Morgan Freeman I don't know who the hell this guy is I think the only people there were the only reason he's gonna verify check mark is because Twitter maybe thought that he was that Morgan Freeman and he's not he's a jazz a middle initial but he's always like well that's not what the founder this is what the founders had in mind when they're writing a stock amendment it isn't because the second amendment isn't about hunting it's not about hunting I'm not afraid to do you're breaking into my house okay I don't like I'm not afraid in the middle of the night if I hear a bomb for my alarm goes off that it's a dear coming to get me okay that's not what any of this is about and really ultimately it's not just about your self defense what amazes me is that while everyone is also simultaneously calling trump Hitler and saying that the entire administration that they're all tyrants is that the same people who also argued that only those people should have guns which is precisely the reason why I and many other people argue we should have guns does that make sense good night so we're gonna continue watching as the advocacy continues because now they're gonna be talking to lawmakers and and speaking of that the I have this we're going to segue into some other stuff too the Virginia legislature that the legislature for Virginia another looking to restrict the number of outdoor gone ranges first they were going after private ones and now they're going and the laws really poorly written and this is what I carry picket authors this at the Washington examiner it is state senator John bell his district covers portions of laden and prince William counties according to the legislation he doesn't want any outdoor range operating within five hundred yards of any property zoned for residential use unless the range design criteria has been met and they say that an outdoor ranges any partially enclosure unenclosed area over silly design for you to use the Baba and the thing is is joining can be changed like that you can change zoning and I was actually actually reached out I was talking to picket about this Michael can't because she lives in Virginia and I also okay well could you just like also just sort of change the zoning out I mean isn't that something that and then you really could and that man go after a lot of these other entities so I don't I to me that was I mean when you think about this any locality then could just you could just rezone any area into any kind of for residential use well that seems pretty concerning just to screw over some sort of outdoor range and think of trapping of ski all of this and nobody understands how the site I've been they haven't it's just like really it I mean it's really written poorly because the other thing that it doesn't take into consideration and I was looking at just the proposal that was available online is that it what if you have a large piece of property like say what if you have you know several hundred acres does that still count if you're shooting on your property you have several hundred acres or so you have a thousand acres and you're shooting on your property whatever whatever is target shooting tragedy whatever because your property it would border again something that that would would that be and that's what the law that's the way that it is written that's not addressed so technically yeah it's so goofy they just they just want to rush something it's a gun control can occur so one of the other things are watchin is this thing with the US space force because at people were and by people I mean those who typically are opposite us in terms of political ideology and we're gonna continue following all the Virginia stuff as well and we're gonna talk to my friend came Edwards who's in Virginia we're gonna be talking to him here just a little bit you know to talk about all those violent law abiding gun owners out there I will wake sub I know we're gonna talk about the space were saying I legit saw video somebody eating a granola bar while they had there they had their phone out and they had like us some pro to a pap patches and they were just munching on I had a little sign nice will sign talking about second them and stuff legit eaten a granola bar it was a live stream just munching on revenues look for an old bar he took a whole top surface for mittens and was just numb and on as little granola bar while he was out there prep needle evil plot biting gun owners yeah okay granola it's not just for hippies although I still fire there probably would've made fun of him for it and I kid all right so we're going to continue to follow that U. S. space force they tweeted out a new utility uniform and service logo and so they have the what is it that I mean it's like that the for a ledge camo right and they said that they saved money on design and production costs because they were re purposing army Air Force gear and all of these goof balls out here many of them verify the reporters that are on the left so does that count they said that why do you need what do you need your green camo what do you need earth tone camo pattern out there in space should it be black and stars what you have is kilo for out there in space why is it breaks the thick and they they traded because they would just mocked it relentlessly and I'm maybe it's because where are they going to go in space there dudes let me ask you that first off do not realize that a significant portion of this is gonna be ground command that thought ever enter your mind you know as you were looking to cheat dust off your fingers before you took your keyboard to feign outrage over something else because you were so I need it for outrage if you think about that for you know you guys didn't think I'm not surprised that people probably never been an even so much as a bar fight before would understand us you know what I mean so I don't know I I would imagine that it would change if need arises right that's kind of how that works in that in me because you have to be adaptable correct seems like that's how that would work a four four three four four Dana we have a lot coming up including we are Florida man still on the way we'll talk to my friend came Edwards is there in Virginia and we also have the latest with the orange man bad the impeachment all of that stuff and a twenty twenty because Mike Bloomberg the guy who wanted to disarm all minority males by blaming all crime in the United States on them and then it heartily endorsed stop and frisk upon which he had a one eighty he did a one eighty and try to block that audio from coming out when he was at the Aspen Institute conference yeah well he said something else stupid so we'll have that for you as well the day that ends in why for him in the meantime as we get moving on a really good friends over at patriot mobile they do us so much good they support really really good causes but you know first and foremost I know that you want to know how affordable your bills going to be I'm paying less than what I did.

you're shooting on your property whatever whatever is target shooting tragedy whatever because your property it would border again something that would would that be and that's what the law that's the way that it is written that's not addressed so technically yeah is this is so goofy they just they just wanna rush something it's a gun control can occur so one of the other things are watchin is this thing with the US space force because at people were and by people I mean those who typically are opposite us in terms of political ideology and we're gonna continue following all the Virginia stuff as well and we're gonna talk to my friend came Edwards who's in Virginia we're gonna be talking to him here just a little bit you know to talk about all those violent law abiding gun owners out there

army Air Force gear and all of these goof balls out here many of them verify the reporters that are on the left so does that count they said that why do you need when you need your green camo what do you need earth tone camo pattern out there in space should it be black and stars what you have is kilo for out there in space why is it breaks the thick and they they turned it because they were just marked it relentlessly and I'm maybe it's because where they gonna go in space there dudes let me ask you that first off do not realize that a significant portion of this is gonna be ground command that thought ever enter your mind you know as you were looking at you know dust off your fingers before you took your keyboard to feign outrage over something else because you were so I need it for outrage if you think about that for you know you guys didn't think I'm not surprised that people probably never been an even so much as a bar fight before would understand us you know what I mean so I don't know I am I would imagine that it would change if need arises right that's kind of how that works in that in me because you have to be adaptable correct seems like that's how that would work a four four three four four Dana we have a lot coming up including we're Florida man still on the way we'll talk to my friend came Edwards is there in Virginia and we also have the latest with the

"dana i" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM
"Is it in so now that is why progressives are blossoming on to an anti gun advocates are blinding onto to say well look here it is yours your incident right here and wait wait wait a four four three four four Dana I'm well any you're welcome to call in and explain to me how a bunch a law abiding people art lawfully and peacefully assembling and as is their right stating that they're not going to comply with on the lawful orders that rob them of of constitutionally protected rights and I'm waiting even for the rover daily you just holler at me you just let me know take an all comers see how it works hi this is so goofy no that is not this is it's it's so unbelievably ridiculous they and and just so you know it is unlawful to strip rights from people that is unlawful and if you're going to start advocating for that then you your tyrant and you don't believe in one order and you definitely don't believe in the foundation of this Republic which is unlawful so if you want to have a discussion about is what what's lawful and what is it lawful there you go there's just there's there's there it is right there yeah that's what they're gone on to I have one guy who probably was sit in is dirty Whitey tight is wearing a wife beater and drinking a Natty light his like here you go on listen here you pilot meet I enter Han stop off good grief and progressive anti gun advocates are always the most sexist are they not so I'm just I they're mad and they're gonna be lashing out at everybody because they wanted violence they want to violence because that's what they do there were people who were who were complaining about dudes wearing just scarves over their mounts because they were so cold and all the people who had no problem at all whatsoever with the NT four where their masks while they were burning buildings down now are suddenly like well Hey it would lead to these people should not be wearing a face covering sign up good heavens so these people I was also looking at there were a couple of and there were a couple Hollywood peeps out there some of what one of these guys he's not a good Morgan Freeman I don't know who the hell this guy is I think the only people there were the only reason he's gonna verify check mark is because Twitter maybe thought that he was that Morgan Freeman and he's not he's a jazz a middle initial but he's always like well that's not what the founder this is what the founders had in mind when you're writing a soccer moment it isn't because the second eleven is about hunting it's not about hunting I'm not afraid dear breaking into my house okay I don't like I'm not afraid in the middle of the night if I hear a bomb or my alarm goes off that it's a dear coming to get me okay that's not what any of this is about and really ultimately it's not just about your self defense what amazes me is that while everyone is also simultaneously calling trump Hitler and saying that the entire administration that they're all tyrants is that the same people who also argued that only those people should have guns which is precisely the reason why I and many other people argue we should have guns does that make sense good night so we're gonna continue watching as the advocacy continues because others are we talking to lawmakers and and speaking of that the I have this we're gonna segue into some other stuff too the Virginia legislature that the legislature for Virginia now they're looking to restrict the number of outdoor gone ranges first they were going after private ones and now they're going and the laws really poorly written and this is what I carry picket authors this at the Washington examiner it is state senator John bell his district covers portions of laden and prince William counties according to the legislation he doesn't want any outdoor range operating within five hundred yards of any property zoned for residential use unless the range design criteria has been met and they say that an outdoor ranges any partially enclosure unenclosed area of versatility designed for you to use the Baba and the thing is is zoning can be changed like that you can change zoning and I was actually actually reset I was talking to pick it about this Michael can't because she lives in Virginia and I also okay well could you just like also just sort of change the zoning now I mean isn't that something that and then you really could and that man go after a lot of these other entities so I don't I to me that was I mean when you think about this any locality then could just you could just rezone any area into any kind of for residential use well that seems pretty concerning just to screw over some sort of outdoor range and think of traffic of ski all of this and nobody understands how the site I mean they haven't it's just like really it's I mean it's really written poorly because the other thing that it doesn't take into consideration and I was looking at just the proposal that was available online is that it what if you have a large piece of property like say what if you have you know several hundred acres does that still count if you're shooting on your property you have several hundred acres or so you have a thousand acres and you're shooting on your property whatever whatever is target shooting tragedy whatever because your property it would border against something that that would would that be and that's what the law that's the way that it is written that's not addressed so technically yeah is this is so good feet they just they just want to rush something it's a gun control

V. there there as I said even Google seems to have given up on chrome tablets there some issues but if you if you really want a chrome tablet I think you can still get the Google pixel slate they called it that was probably the best not the cheapest H. P. makes a Chromebook tablet and Acer makes a Chromebook tablet the nice thing is chrome OS is a very stable mice operating system obviously you must know that because you're asking for it the better you sold me on that years ago I DO use Microsoft window at all anymore I mean I'm just so glad not to deal with viruses and if you know the truth is what most people do in their computers they spend most their time in the browser so you don't need more than that idea I think you're probably better off yet if you really want to chrome tablet I would go with the pixel slight that's probably the best and then just either chrome cast you could put if you have a T. V. outside use will chrome cast on and chrome cast from the tablet yeah I think that's probably the best way you're gonna get the best results Best Picture and you won't be compromising in on either the projector or the tablet that way I mean pretty good on the on the Google pixel yeah it really depends on your internet your your connection you know how good your wifi is how would how good the signal is and all that stuff please make sure that they they're still they're still selling yeah they still sell the pixel slide is yes not super cheap but it's you know it's it's it's it's pretty nice it it's like the surface it has Microsoft servers it has a attached detachable keyboard it's you know it's it it's a pretty decent thing the reviews are negative as I think chrome OS well the I don't know I'm I don't know why Google stopped stopped promoting it maybe I don't know you know their truth is their newest the pixel go is really the slate with the with the physical keyboard built in so they haven't given up I guess on that hardware but I don't care what it costs to get keep my wife at the boy that's my motto they started a hundred Bucks that's probably how many yeah keep invested for happiness happiness is all and it is of it's actually very nice tablets got a good screen this Google makes the best Chromebooks they just also the most expensive well thank you pleasure everything all right you have a wonderful holiday to thank you you too take care I'm not sure why chrome tablets of just not taken off it might be a lack of much of the why it would be android tablets were bad because there weren't a lot of good tablet apps for android but chrome is you know the chrome OS is really designed for that's that form factor so I don't know I'm not sure what Google stock but they're still selling it I just they're not it's not their newest latest greatest you'll probably want the a keyboard which is an additional cost time yet yet yet check it out as a cost the same as a fairly high end laptop maybe that's where the problem lay the pixel book goes a little more with less expensive eighty eight eighty eight ask Leo that's the phone number take a little break of time out come back with the last segment of the show this weekend is whizzed by I'm so glad you're here.

"dana i" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"He's expanding his brand and kind enough to let me join them near the office talk Dana thanks for for being here thanks for all right so we know you as you have seen a guy that built this company into the monster today but recently you've decided that you want to get into the boxing space so before I get into the specifics tell me your history with boxing is was it always something that that appeal to you just take me back to your early days with it yeah well I always wanted to get into boxing and originally we're going to get into boxing Lorenzo Tita and that was that was the plan and then the whole UFC thing popped up which everybody knows that story but I from boxing started boxing in Boston with you probably know Peter Wilshire if you don't know him you've heard of him he is what I call my my sense and you know basically taught me everything about the business and when I left Boston and came back to Vegas you know I was training the another Southie Guy Jim Leblanc who who I trained and worked with and we he ended up losing to Fernando Vargas in the box offs that we're out here and the only other thing that I had done in boxing at the time was I got a local kid here Derrick Harmon a fight with Roy Jones Junior I did the deal for that fight on three boxing gyms here in town and then Lorenzo for Tita and I were talking about getting involved in sports somehow and the whole UFC thing happened instead but it's always been a plan and an idea to get into the sport but the timing is now now is the right time and everything in life is about timing at the time at the you know the stuff happened it was the right place right time the right everything and I believe that right now the timing is perfect for for box Okay so tell me why the timing is perfect and exactly when did this idea come germinate with you about getting involved in this business always been there but after the sale we came over here we had some big hurdles we had to overcome after we you know the sale we did it we crushed it everything's good does businesses on fire right now after the ESPN ESPN deal such a game changer for us and I've been talking to some people and poking around then I you know a couple of years ago I think I you know announced that I'd be talking to all the boxing promoters and I have literally talked almost everybody there's a couple more guys flying in from England here in the next couple of weeks to meet with me and the the reception the boxing community has been shockingly good I didn't expect it to be as good as it has been it's been very very good pretty much everybody loves the idea of US getting involved in a sport right now like I said which I didn't I didn't see come in and I didn't expect John I'm ready to roll when you say everyone's excited about it you mean other promoters of the promoters why are they excited about it I today believe that first of all I believe let me start with desk believe that there's enough money out there for everybody plenty of money for everybody if you look at the money the boxing has made over the last hundred years you know it's a massive number and I think that there's for everybody the model is broken everybody knows the model is broken but nobody knows how to fix it and I have a lot of ideas that I'm going to start sharing with the world in October and I'm sure a lot of people will agree with me and I'm sure a lot of people disagree with me a lot of people will you know same same shit that happened when we took over the UFC and said we were going to do this that and all of a sudden the same thing that happened when we sold the company and you know we it was overpriced and now the company is going to take all the tippety that never goes away in this combat sports business that we're in we'll here we'll hear people that agree and disagree and we'll find out you know because I'm not I'm not one of these guys that says I'm GonNa do something and then doesn't do it I'm going to go steve this thing and we're gonNA take a run at it and see what happens is what you're doing right now the UFC fight pat stuff with Lou Dibella is that indicator of how you want to enter the space or do you have different type of plan different obviously you know the stuff we're doing so in other promoters right now and other promoters in MMA bringing all these guys in on on UFC fight pass which is going to end up where we watching that in October two so there'll be a hole relaunch of of UFC fight pass and interested in all combat sports I want to do something in an area of combat sports including boxing and bringing in other promoters with their fights on fi pass creating attention to these fights earning people to watch building up talent and then I have a much bigger plan for the sport why the question I had right off the bat is why would another podcast to talk about you you know you asked me to do this guy says yeah absolutely I'll do it but it's hard to do and not tell you everything I I'm thinking whatever tiptoe around okay wh- The answers here's my my the big overall question that I had coming into this was other promoters let's say it's top rank let's say it's Eddie hearn it's called Al Hamma promoter for the purpose of this discussion they have television deals huge television deals that at afford them platforms and bringing a lot of money why would they need you why would they want to work with you when independently it seems like they're all doing pretty well I don't know I don't I don't know if they're all doing pretty well I don't know if that's really the case They F- TV deals and they're on TV and they're putting on fights but I think and this is just my opinion I still think that the model is broken and needs to be fixed in doing these TV deals and signing fighters in doing what they're doing they haven't fixed the problems the problems need to be fixed or they're never going to go away and it just you know you're on this hamster wheel and like I said when I come out in October and announced what I'm going to do you and how I'm going to change it and how actually GonNa shake up in break the entire model in rebuild it there will be plenty of names Zehr's and probably agree with me and we'll see if I can do I'm sure there are a lot of people that agree with you that the model is broken in boxes in this way too much talk about fights that don't happen then fights it actually do happen and that's not something you deal with regularly in UFC big fights tend to happen but but your mind what is what's broken about the boxing model and you look at what's going on right now what is specifically broken about it I can't talk about that stuff because it literally lead right into what I'm going to do and what I'm going to change or attempt to change and I don't WanNa be so arrogant that you know what I'm GonNa do this and I'm going to do that I'm going to try I'm gonNA give it a shot I've always wanted to do this I've always wanted to try this I think that a lot of the ideas and a lot of the things that we implemented into the sport of mixed martial arts have worked we've really created a business that's that's built a last my partners the for Titas left for years ago the business I'm going to leave here Sunday and the business will go on without me to you know that's when you know you've built a real business and I think I know what to do with boxing will it work we'll see do you think that how you do business in UFC can be you can it translates over to how you can do business in boxing because the pay models are for and how it all shakes out yeah very different and and the the you know there's always this talk you know we went through this talk for fifteen years almost twenty years where you don't pay your fighters boxers get a finders get paid everybody gets paid everybody's being paid and it's not just the top two or three everybody on the Ross got over six hundred guys that are getting paid and making a living and feeding their families and buying houses and cars and all these the things now when you look at boxing a handful of guys may crazy money and that's the way it's always been built and then you have you know thousands of people don't so I think that we can create a pay system the benefits everybody I mean they're still fights out there where you just turned pro in guys are making four hundred bucks a fight you know one hundred bucks around and things like that you got guys fighting for world titles for ten around fifteen grand That's that's what I WANNA fix to be a effective with what you're trying to do you in mixed martial arts do you effectively have monopoly you the the king with with most of the top fighters in the business do you have to create one in boxing well that's not true the reality is that we're far from a monopoly I have I have I go out and compete against Viacom these guys sit on five billion in cash there there's a company out of Asia right now the just raised a shitload of money and compete with us to and you think that I have you know the best fighters in the world because I go out and I find this talent I bring them in and I build you know I'll in Kana McGregor is the best example nobody knew who conor McGregor was six years ago right now this is one of the biggest stars in all of sports Israel out of Sonya is about the fight and the biggest fight ever in the history of Australia you know and what three years ago they didn't know who Israel was three years ago nobody knew Israel he's GonNa fight in the biggest fight in the history of Australia and the list goes on and on rowzee and I can go on for days with talent that we've built here homegrown and do the same thing in boxing part of that though is getting the best to fight the best which is what you've done in UFC that's proven to be exceedingly difficult to say the least in boxing how how does that chain with what you're trying to do so that's exactly what has to change that definitely ask change the best half the fight the best so what you do you go out and you build this talent bring him in sign them build them and you have the best the best it's just it's it's the culture here it's the way and and when you talk about who's the champ there should never been questioned the champions because you fought the best to get there was offered one hundred million dollars to fight Anthony Josh when he turned it down this heavyweight thing is science and if you took I don't care if you take the four big fun heavyweights that are out there right now right Joshua wilder fury and rees right so those guys could fight each other for the next three years and make hundreds of millions of dollars there's so much money there ever there's enough money for everybody even if they're promoted by all different guys there's enough money for everybody but you gotta get them to do it you gotta get these guys to fight but the way that the the way that the the world I'll call it right now the world in boxing structured right now you got zone own top rank over on ESPN showtime jumps in every once in a while and does something you know they're not as now you gotta get you have to build a stable of guys in weight classes build them up so we we bought the UFC we bought an old wooden acting on those three letters and like eleven contract six or something like that we had eleven guys under contract there's over six hundred people under contract now and it was done over the last almost twenty built this business but it can be do have personally do you have the appetite the passion for that to to play the long game with comes to box listen I just signed a new seven year deal I'm.

But you're saying the question you should have been asking, who am I not in my boy or girl? Why? Why am I hear those kind of thing? Those are the questions. Kind of questions. What Dana means is that those are the kinds of questions most people get to ask, but they were so forced into, like wondering if they were a boy or girl that they never got to get to like the big existential life questions. Most of us, you know, wrestle with they were just way back ground zero or doctor, but I got on stock. What is it like mean to like? Find a word that explains you. So who'll. Yeah.

Americans are now beginning six day of captivity, improve golf. Of the age of Antioch, the fossil. Speech. Route. How did it feel to be to be part of the military or at least away from home and away from your siblings and your parents? Phil, fairly good. I felt a little free for free. The confines. But couple. Happened when I was in eighty about five years in I people started thinking I was gay. Not that I did anything to encourage that. I didn't date anybody do anything, or do you remember how that started or why? Well, because I was so small, I didn't go out drinking and trying to pick up women with the guys in there was somebody on board my first ship who I guess was putting books and magazines on my rack, very gay contact, gay porn or something explicit, gay foreign in as books. You could think that leaving gay porn on someone's bed or bookshelves his, not that big of a deal or some sort of like initiation thing or something. But this was at a time before don't ask tell where if you were gay you were kicked out. So I got caught up in which fronts. You know, one point. And which is a precursor today NCIS the National Institute of security, navy intelligence service. Okay. Close. Give me another acronym on nail it. Anyway, so they infuriated me about, you know who I was dating who as sex were really? Yeah, you know those kind of things. And then while all that was happening when I was in Beirut on my second tour late fall, nineteen eighty two Dane out was working below deck. It doing some paperwork in a noisy fan room and an announcement win out on the ship. That said that they're going to do a test launch of one of the gigantic missiles on board. But Dana didn't hear the announcement because they were in the super loud room and like them. Why? Paperwork I opened the hatch to go back in the ship stuff out, begun goes off firing, a seventy pound projectile, maybe twenty thirty feet away from my head, holy crap. And. Yeah. And the Corman basically white blood on my ears gave me some aspirin said what you'll get your balance back and go back to work. Basically back in those days, they didn't know about reworked to concern about brain injuries or. If I go back to what you find, you know they didn't really realize how much screwed up you can be from Dana says that ever since that time I can't. I am a hard time looking backwards and telling time needless to say, after the witch hunts and the brain injury, the re up when I'm like, no. You know, when I got out, you know, four years after I got out, I think it was or a little bit longer. I started going to Colorado state university. I was about thirty years old when I started college during their first domestic. Dana was in a poetry class in Dana says something in the words of those poets and in the class discussion pushed them to go see the college therapists walked, will, you know. I think I'm oppressed in. I'm think I'm good. Tell me more about the why you thought you were gay. Two things. All that can fees on my mind. You know, I'm my boy girl kind of thing. I don't really know what the hell is going on with me anyway. Dana says that he didn't really feel like a boy, like the way other boys do. The kind of felt like an off kilter kind of boy. And what do you call that. All these, which fronts in the navy got really Thurs thinking about, well, our was or not like maybe those guys were seeing something that Dana couldn't see that that was true thought, well, it must be a gay man. I didn't know anything else. I didn't know how any other term, gay, lesbian, bisexual. And we had cross dressers. Oh, yeah. So you're like, okay, out of those options. Which one feels the most like me. The one I thought was the best option I was. So I went to gay male and you know, I didn't date anyone, but that best that Dana saw ended up recommending that they go join this group on campus. The gay and lesbian alliance was later, became the gale as being bisexual. You know, that's how long ago was this would have been nineteen eighty nine ish like walking into that group. What did that here? I am. What feel like to hear you are heart was pounding, like, man, you know, I didn't know what to expect in the sydell. Welcome have a seat. He didn't ask her you dating who you're fucker. Anything out. Those would be some hard first questions. I think I'd ride if someone started a conversation with that through my mind. There was like an entry visa. Sign off on certain things. Yeah, yeah, but they were very welcoming and I thought, well, you know, at least there's a place that I can hang out where people accept me for being different within a short while. Dana is not just going to meetings but is protesting with the group. Because round that time, something called amendment. Two was proposed in Colorado repeals any state or local law that protects homosexuals from discrimination amendment to varies up in Colorado. So we got her shells pretty organized. I went to Larmer county Republican convention thing on my God. Really. Did you spe- tried to booed off the stage so you so you became something of an activist. A spokesman for the student line. So you really found a home there. When I started waking up or being term as. Start start eating too know. A lot more won't now than I was then. It was like, I got my first sip coffee in the caffeine started. Like your brain. So different. So many colors. There was one problem though living as a gay man. I was at that time. Dana was not gay. No. They felt at home as a gay man, but they were mostly attracted to women and towards the end of college in their late thirties, hurt school, working in the fibers department, doing my studio classes woman when he kept coming in watching me work. She got them only. I got to know her and we started dating. We got married really. Wow, you went all the way to marriage and this is in this is early ought sir likely to. Seven, we got divorced. Ears? Yeah, didn't work out. We both had issues. We weren't dealing with Dana says this period of their life up through the marriage through the end of it. It was very confusing. They're just trying to figure out where they stood and they were trying all these terms like sexual also trims. How did that idea get into the room goes, I mean, of hearing more and more trans people on. Okay. Starting to read a little bit about it. Hoon's might well, maybe maybe. Why did that feel more true than gay male or straight male or because a new this, there was a feminine quality about myself ahead to recognize. Okay, so I thought, well, if I'm not a man, I must be a woman, New York kind of woman. I thought it could be was gonna be a trans woman meaning today, a person who is born male but identified as a woman. So you're like, holy crap. So you're like. That's so interesting that like us were watching. Yeah, it's just it's, it's like in. In a world where there's limited words, you're just you're just trying to figure out the word that fits you. It's like these small steps towards a truth. So, yeah, athlete, a divorce. I'm I'm looking myself. In saying, okay, what's going on here with me? This isn't working.

I'm Ali Webster this go episode five this week. We're bringing you pair of episodes. This is the second one in the pair. They grew out of our reporting on Xs and ys, and all the different biological realities that live inside of us in this episode. Dana ZIM. Hello? Hello? Hello. Hi, this is Molly Webster. I can hear you one of your working, the other one's pretty low, but turn headphones around. Dana is doing something kinda historic. I guess you could say. And just to start us off, Dana uses the pronoun. They not him or her, but they and a few years ago, fifteen or fourteen. I can't remember which I have memory issues. So it's round twenty fourteen Dana is filling out passport application and their two boxes to check male or female. And Dana is like, well, I'm not either one of those, and so they wrote in third option. Intersex basically apply for my passport got talked to by the manager of the office, took me aside and said, you know, you cannot get this passport and they turn me down an I appealed. You can appeal a passport application. To who do you go back to the passport on. Would say, I am. Yeah, back to the passport office and you know, an I field, but the passport office rejected the appeal basically saying male or female. That's all we got from there a phone legal counsel. So Dana ends up suing the State Department for third, non female, non mail option. So we brought Dana into the studio to talk about the State Department case. And while we were having our conversation, what began to unfold like in their personal life story was this tale of words how words have the power to shape the world. I was an air force brat. So we moved all over the place. Dana was born in nineteen fifty eight Michigan. Who's in the military, your dad or your mom dad was like for pilot. So Alabama for wall, Texas, for while Montana for awhile, England for a while as a kid. As a kid grew up with a bunch of brothers who will Rogers and one younger, like a whole pack of boys eighteen months apart, but Dana never really felt like one of them. Yeah, I got to. When I started showering with other boys and probably like fifth grade starting getting teas. About life size in looking physically different down there because. My testicles didn't vote like the other boys. What looks like stuff sausage. It was little. Didn't look. And Dana said it never felt right either always having pain Pene from when you were little going to bathroom and those kind of things, everything hurt. Clus smaller, you know, throw ball, like a girl on the brothers tried to help older rose or trying to teach me how to do things better. She was my hero, try to stick up for me, but to me, the world lose a scary place. My dad was always drawn flying who's kind of a scary figure. My mother, she had a backhand that would quit, and she never played tennis. And Dana says, for some reason, their parents always kept a close watch on them. Remember once entitled hood, we are living Arkansas. The girl next door had those cut out, Bari the whole hose? And you know, we're at cardboard Barbies though. She has those and we're playing with those CNI in my dad Kana's. I got my my, but Speight and boys don't play with dolls. My brothers were able to do things similar, but I wasn't allowed to see you think like if your brother was playing the paper dolls, with the neighbor, it would have been a different response new that did you have any idea? Like why do something different? I just had no words. My world was very small, and I think you could say it was partially because of that smallness in an effort to make the world like a little bit bigger in nineteen seventy eight at twenty or join the navy.
