"Some responses. And i think one of the most interesting is The pushback on mugshots because mugshots are like people at their very worst moment and being arrested. Doesn't mean you're guilty and who gets arrested more than other people people of color people who are low income and say you catch somebody at their worst moment and then you put their photo app as a sideshow gallery to get clicks and they lose their kids and you're starting to see some news. Organizations recognized that so at least there bones their bones here. Emma yes well. I mean hopefully that. Those bones are a bit of a stronger foundation than the one i just described. Do you know what i'm ya. Yeah whatever's built going forward but doctrine nikki usher Her book is called news for the rich white and blue. I really appreciate your time today. Nikki thank you so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it. all right. folks. We're gonna take a quick break and when we come back winner. Wrap things up washburn. So i thought that that was fascinating and good for I'm glad we were able to get nikki to join us. Because i think given last week's news with afghanistan particularly with what we've seen over the past few decades about how sources are especially when it comes to langley sources or government sources are used for specific purposes in can't necessarily be trusted. And so like you know. This isn't just to say. All of 'em fake news or whatever there's still we go to the washington post and new york times for news of the day on the on the regular but there's just substantive differences between sourcing on different stories in what you can trust if that makes sense. Yeah also gets weird for instance to get afghanistan news from mika brzezinski and john mccain's daughter but well apparently some some people find value in that. According to the ratings are american media we have to say goodbye to our peacock audience. We will see you tomorrow. Well i mean if making mccain objectionable john lamb through all right all right folks. Thank you for bearing with us. We're glad we were able to get the miscommunication in terms of the time by. Everyone should check out that book. We are going to go into the fawn half. Do some more clips take some calls have a grand old time maybe crack open a beer. Probably not probably not but man man we were saying. We're gonna do that friday. Actually somebody sent us a bucks of hellofresh. It isn't a hellofresh box which is not what you want to get on a friday. When sam's not here because it's like mean old like rotting food ingredients in there. Not that we don't not that the food inherently be rotting. But we just didn't know how long didn't ask to carry it across brooklyn something food i didn't. I wasn't prepared for like a random hellofresh box right so we were going to distribute it in another way but we. I opened the box after everyone left. What's in the box. And it was one of captures head. It was a lot of beer. So thank you for to do. Yes so we stuck on the fridge figure that maybe to celebrate my final day of the long hosting gig will crack open a beer on friday but anyway we're going to head into the fun half what's happening unless reckoning this week though matt yes they. We had a really good interview. I can't figure out patriots stuff for left recommend because we do so much stuff. I'm like can't keep this but for now it's by paywall emma kenema she's a lead organizer for Game workers united and also communication workers of america is a campaign to organize digital employees. We talked about the activism blizzard lawsuit and the frat boy culture and sort of like Just harassment endemic to video games industry. And why unions. Not boycotts are the solution. We always hear about like boycott this boycott that and of course in terms of obviously there's clear model of that working but when it comes to things like consumer products like video games the knee-jerk reaction shouldn't be devoid boycott game. What even even if the employees are being Sort of abuse. Which often are. That's not the solution. You need to just empower those employees with the union. So we talked to yesterday about that. People should check out. Patriot dot com slash left reckoning tech. Check out the no mckee show and Of course Black the stream pogs hype train. Also go subscribe to left reckonings youtube channel.

"I think you're hitting on one of the most difficult problems to disentangle right now. Which is what is it that really drives that continues to drive the distrust. That republicans have in institutional news media. So i think that like when you look at news on the left for the left. It's just simply not as large of a step right and the question is why is that is it because liberals are looking for like what you say fact base media or is it because the news is itself you know following liberal agenda that liberals them associated with right and it's implicit rather than explicit I think that you know one of the tensions is that many liberals do what their journalism to do more. And i think that's why you see whenever the new york times is overly neutral right that a whole host of liberals will say cancel mit. So i think i would be trouble that premise. A little bit that you know they want fact based news yes they want reality based mutes. That's different to rising in terms of like their perception of they're paying for. Yeah i mean. I think that that's a really good question right. I don't know if we know right. I think their perception is that they're paying for reality based news and their expectations may be that they wanna see at straight but when that seeing straight doesn't square with larger agenda of social justice. I think that's where you see the fisher start to happen right. Pretend i think he sees particularly around issues of race in the way that these big institutions are race. Also how you also talk about the response to black lives matter by some of these institutions. Can you talk about what you've found there. Yeah i mean. I think that what we're seeing now in journalism is one of the most existential debates that we can see. Is this debate over whether objectivity makes sense off and what does it mean to be objective and who where does that stance of objectivity come from and one of the things that we saw with black lives matter was that black journalists were saying like i can't be objective. This is my livelihood like this is my life. This is my son's life. This is like how am i supposed to be distanced from this right. A non you saw more journalists with covert either right like how am i distanced from cova. When this is something. I'm seeing and living in my own community and so how do you really reasonably detached. Experience of struggle from the experience of china. Cover that quote. Factually what does that meet. And i think that in the early sort of post. George floyd moment that we saw there are some pretty big missteps. I think that the philadelphia inquirer published a column header. That said all buildings matter with like nice and it's like all buildings that are. How did that happen like. How did that happen right. Like i often out via as a city is still is majority. Black at this point Like what happened in the newsroom. And nobody caught that like all buildings matter to is like a problem right and and it ended up being a big a big issue that executive editor ended up leaving The times published the. Tom cotton op-ed were called for troops to move into the cities to control. Black lives matter protests. And like. what was really unusual about that is new york times. Journalist actually spoke out about how that wasn't okay. That was not an okay. Decision of the times and usually descent at times is very muted right. You don't see it. And so those moments where it breaks out are particularly noteworthy but news organizations. Are you know the adaptation. We saw was ap decided capitalize feet in black and giving better guidance. On how defied a racist do you have to know their purely racist in our heart to cost of video racists and answer is now So those are the kinds of changes we see in institutional journalism response but the institutions. Themselves i think are not meaningfully responding. Not only to the world around them but to their on journalists right and a lot of what i see is not necessarily imbued with any class space analysis. Unfortunately like i. I feel like yeah the capital of b. and then we're not really talking more seriously about kind of the institutions that are given credibility or given weight in terms of what's determined to be like a an objective fact set for this story where like it's built on a house of cards this objective story because the police are reporting giving you these objective facts for your article. That's not objective. The statistics that you're using for this might have might be skewed in a certain direction. that's not necessarily objectively. There's so many layers to what's being reported on that. Have a faulty foundation. That i still feel like is not necessarily being explored. I think you're absolutely right. And i think the cases that we see at most are taking the word for granted with the military and take for granted select with the military industrial complex of light police military. I think he sees hardcore in. I think part of it is you know. I think it's a bad ass factor leg especially with the military it's like whoa these dudes like have gone in like serious. You know like fighting like these are big weapon. Salima knew it. They're attacking out like deference to authority. That's why we need more veterans in user an actually I think but also with police. That is the thing that you're taught in journalism school or at a journalism. Internship is like you wanna know crowd estimate at a protest at the police. But if that protests the black lives matter protests over police Murders slash shooting like what's their incentive to give you an actual count even if they are good at giving out counts rate and so. I think again. We're.

"Really surfaces narratives and unfortunately big national news outlets. Don't always think that much of the reporters that are on the ground because otherwise it would be working for their national news outlet right well so then that kind of brings it back to this. This reinforcing dynamic self-reinforcing dynamic where you have people from affluent backgrounds in these newsrooms who don't really see the value in bringing invoices that are more locally based in the areas that they're reporting and then it creates this gap in coverage and then every after these elections there's reckoning habit. We get this wrong. How do we not understand this. And i guess part of this a lot of people talk about the decline of local news as like one of the bigger reasons but you had a pretty interesting take on this romanticism of the local newspaper. That you wrote about which is basically a meth in many ways in way that it's portrayed talk about that because i think that's where maybe some of your critique really does diverge from what a lot of people in the news business or trying to propose a solution so it is true that we are more fat more focused as a nation on national politics and national news media. And that's where sort of like the attention it's freight but the solution is not to prop up these decaying local newspapers. I mean. I think that it's really important recognized that even some of the best local best big metropolitan newspapers in this country have really sorted legacies when it comes to race I think the l. a. times recent series the reckoning where current reporters and journalists at times talk about their own experiences of being discriminated against at the newspaper is is a really formidable reminder of how these large institutions even some of the best submarine mostly white institutions. That have not you know really connected with the communities that they serve so that's one thing but when we start talking about like this vision a oh my gosh. If there aren't local journalists on the ground are going to be school boards at go uncovered and are going to be sewer. Boards that go uncovered and everything's gonna be super corrupt now. Well in a lot of these towns and counties across the united states the person who runs the school word also runs the local newspaper. And i think like that that it's a very misguided very metropolitan based understanding of what local news in your community is like because in many many regards that community newspaper. And i'm talking about like you know thirty thousand circulation daily like the one in in place where i live. That is pro business. Conservatism isn't questioning. Like you know we had this case. Where the hospital full based on actual data but the pr person comes out and says like oh. We're fine and the paper doesn't question act so it's not like there's this like huge accountability journalism that has been happening. That's a fantasy for the bass. It's like a fantasy out of tequila mocking and i'll be worked up but like even tequila mockingbird. Can you imagine that's had to have been a segregationist escaper like small if you think about it a little too hard a dozen side it. It doesn't really square with the romanticism. That a lot of people in media have about their profession which also translates to elitism and This insular kind of dynamic that you're talking about. I also thought this was such a really great part of your book. Re talk about how the subscription model for a lot of these news papers is reinforcing. Some of these very dynamics right because it's making journalism quality journalism journalism that's funded Even though with all of the biopsies that we're talking about but saying like investigative reporting in a way that it isn't accessible to a lot of papers It's making it a private good. And so then it's the rich white pay for the news and the rich and wider in the newsrooms. And that's this like kind of pocket talk about the ramifications of that. Yeah so. I think what people who aren't in the news industry don't always realize just how dire it is to have a digital first outlet or a newspaper because the digital advertising ecosystem has completely collapsed. And so what that means. Is you need to rely more on subscribers or members or whatever you wanna call them and so who are the kinds of people that are most likely to subscribe to a news m. we know who those people are And then when you have to really reorient your strategy as a news organization around not necessarily just serving advertisers but really like targeting. Those people who can in will pay that changes and distorts coverage. That was already distorted right. An jack cheaper in politica. The other day he called it subscriber. And i think that that's exactly what's happening. And i also don't want to lose sight of the asymmetric polarization in some of this rate so that like republicans and democrats have very different levels of distrust in the news media and based on public opinion polling. We know but liberals are just more likely to subscribe to local news and the even if it's not very good it's like a sense of moral obligation sense of civic duty and so i think that changes the contours to i don't think we have a much larger conversation about like is the news media liberal will but i think when you think about the subscriber base there are people who are willing to pay for news there are most likely white because the institutions are white and have served white audiences and our liberal in that that is really concerning the it should be concerning to us all but the dynamic is really interesting too because they're paying for news that is objective right there on the left for the most part but they're trying to pay for news and subscribe to news that is fact base and not as opinion as opinionated as say the media that people on the writer consuming. And isn't it interesting that you know there's this whole cohort of kind of more elite liberals that want to pay for subscriptions to these papers that that don't like or don't want the appearance of their news being Tilted in a certain way and then the right has zero problem with that. Like i mean that that kind of valley between the two is problematic in and of itself. Yeah i mean..

"Kind of interesting. I think because as you see more coverage of georgia and atlanta through rate easy like people forget that. Cnn is in even in atlanta rum. But with kobe. You've seen how cnn has like own that atlanta and georgia presence but kind of to the point around like who gets to be part of these newsrooms. Well how do you set yourself up to work at one of the elite national newsrooms in this country while internet right and who can afford to internal. Maybe you get lucky because you happen to go to school in new york and so you're not paying for extra housing to work at a new york publication but or new york outlet but when you think about like how hard it is to just as a student get to one of these big cities pay rent for the summer like and maybe not even get paid for your job right like that unpaid internships circuit or poorly paid internship circuit just by the nature of lake just very basic starting out cuts out huge potentials journalists straight. Just because of the way that that is structured. And i think like we don't like to talk about pipelines because it seems like such a narrow intervention but you have to think about it as a pipe because who gets to have an internship dictates who ultimately gets to run a news organization right. Yeah and we're seeing a lot of this too with the new york times unionization fight. I don't know if you follow that at all. I'm sure he did. You had big name. Reporters like maggie haberman opposing lean should fight and then you have hundreds of people who are working on staff there who probably a lot of them as you say may already have affluent backgrounds. Because they're in the room. I mean that's what's difficult about. That is because the majority of people who are in the room are there because they had the advantages to be there I guess just talk about that. Particular fight As as it fits into your thesis. Yes so i mean. I think that it's really important to note that the new york times does have journalists that are coming from cuny and some of the you know local schools in. I think that the problem is like how empowered are those journalists in. How much harder is it for them to be heard and i know that it is harder for journalists who are not coming from harvard to get hurt and notice they have to work twice as hard as or sometimes three times as hard Particularly if they're a journalist who is not white And so. I think like with regard to the unionization by it's actually an old fight And it's a fate that begins with the story of whether digital digital content is worth as much in terms of labor as sort of content. That would run in the print paper right and for the longest time anybody who is like a strictly new york times digital placate because of the way that their contract structured got paid less just by virtue of the fact that they're single output was gonna be digital i and obviously that's become incredibly archaic and you know the unionization effort itself. I think reflects larger tensions at times where the times on one hand has generation of journalists. Who are like who do care about social justice. But they also see themselves. As doing fact-based journalism can those two coexist will for a younger generation of journalists. Absolutely think that that's the case. Those are journalists also. Who don't have the houses in montclair yet right muser journalists who are struggling like you can have like a backup plan you can. Have you know know that if you miss a month rent maybe you can borrow it from your parents. That that's really different than being able to afford to have a life in york great and so i think that that kind of more woke generation of of young journalist one. They don't see any difference between like the what they're journalism looks like. And what the ultimate way people i need. It is great but also like to some degree. It's just a culture like a real culture were almost at the times About an i think if i had to call it My guess is that when gene mckay steps down that choice of who becomes the editor in chief is going to tell you a lot about how much that new generation of voice this is gonna be listened to. It's a really huge decision. So one of the things wrote about two was kind of the the effect that was felt in the two thousand sixteen election. And just i mean some of the issues and the critiques that were laid bare just by the response to that and the things missed and also the writing that followed. What were some of the dynamics that you felt. Trump's victory exposed in a lot of these papers and larger outlets. Yeah and so. I should say just by the way for like the ethos of being able to speculate on time. They did write a whole book on the times called making news at the new york times. So like it's not it's not totally coming out of nowhere for anybody knowing So as far as Sort of your question about what twenty sixteen showed us. I think it's what twenty sixteen and twenty twenty us to be quite honest. Which is that numbers. Don't tell the whole story and you can't get the pulse of country just by polling it and you can't get the pulse of the country just by listening to political operatives who are in my soul mates over that please i know i. Unfortunately there's a lot of like political communication scholars who don't find nate silver to be their best friend right now but i need i cert- so many of my talks with that. Seventy one percent clinton mike slide that slide for predicting like nate silver is like prediction of one percent like that. Hillary would win right and what happens is for those of us who pay a lot of attention to politics. We think of politics as a game. And i think there is nothing that exemplifies that more than like the new york times crazy like dial ticker thing the that that whole thing and it's not it's people on the ground who like have experiences that are not like yours affair coming from new york city. It's really easy to not know what's going on in to judge them for a living life. That's different than yours and i really do feel this especially now because i live in central illinois and i can walk to a cornfield and like every there's so much geographic disconnection because some of the places that are now referenced as rural america. I've been to. And i know that it's not like that right I know that some of the dynamics. They're trying to tease out by these road. Trips on the trump safari or like antibac- safari team dynamics can be playing out right in yorker dc. You know and so. I think one of the biggest problems is treating the rest of the country as a caricature rather than the rest of the country as it actually exists and that is a massive lines that that i think requires continual self examination. So is part of that. Solution having hubs throughout the country for more these major papers you know. I think we saw a really important trend happening when people started de l'estang like you need to be nbc. There are some journalists or new york. Great that this can be located outside of their And i think it's really interesting are some journalists who are trying to cover national politics from texas for example like what does it mean to cover national politics outside of the nation's capital rate so i do think bureaus in hubs are one solution. I also think look a lot of these really really talented local journalists have like. They don't have the same kind of support. They used to have from their news organizations. There's a lot of talent that's locally based that can be scooped up in used to the advantage of these large outlets. I think you're starting to see some of that But it's hard to. I mean a lot of these efforts. Think that you know saint louis is a small city. And it's not you know and i think that i think that's like you know or we can cover the south from atlanta which also great and so i think it's like about being really strategic about using local talent that's unused Am better connecting to the organizations that are on the ground.

"Right. I would like to welcome to the show nikki. Usher is the author of news for the rich white and blue nikki. Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us today. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah so we're coming off in my opinion of really clear and obvious display of the media bubble that you described this elite media consensus in the wake of the afghanistan withdrawals great example of. I guess. Let's start there. What were your thoughts. Given the fact that you have so many so much experience in this field at what you saw in terms of comparatively the public's response which i think largely is. Let's get out of afghanistan to the entire media losing their minds. So i think there is like a really interesting inroad to your question which is the way that The washington post the new york times in the wall street journal put forward their own like public diplomacy effort to rescue anybody that was associated with helping the papers in our families bad is like a really good illustration of Kind of on one level like how. The news media doesn't doesn't see itself as like everybody else and that like you know. It is very rare for the papers to collaborate on anything in fact i don't remember the last time they've co written a letter like that. Maybe in response to some of the trump stuff there were sort of marvin implicit ingredient about how to handle the president. But this is like an explicit ask of the biden administration and then these papers went ahead on their own and like positioned and the near Their foreign corresponds also marine and like they positioned him at the airport like rum logistics to get their people out. And i think that that's like a really to me. Yes there is the media losing their mind in. It's an investment in a story and yes there is different public response but sometimes these single actions in single moments really highlight where the power is and. I think that that's a really clear example of like whose lives matter. Who has the ability demands special treatment And like just kind of like a highlighting of like the press is the most important thing inch so i didn't really quite totally answer your question but i think that that speaks to it almost more you know. Yeah well it's it's a great kind of conduit into one of the opening stories in your book about this. Lavish dc celebration with the likes of marty baron and bob woodward and there's so much lobster lots and lots of lobster consumed and kind of just how that was instructive for the way that you were trying to analyze some of the way that these elite media institution media in general is structured in this country. So just talk about that. Yeah so i mean. I think what was that kurdi rate so. The washington post moved into a new building after bazo spot in tech about like a year or so. But when you get any building you have a big party and it was a chance to like bring all the glitter roddy together so these earnings that you and i would recognize but maybe like ordinary person wouldn't and it was like this week long celebration so the like one night that i went it was to inaugurate the page one room as the ben bradlee story room and what struck me was like how detail oriented. The display was so like the scotch was in the proper high ball. Glass in the wine was in like their wind last and the champagne was in his champagne flute. And like just who thinks about stemware like that. You know what i mean. If you like and rich yeah right leg. And then the next day they were like these monogrammed washington post napkins and wa- veggies. Which really kind of hit you over the head and like three types of water and it's like to sometimes like these material things even same more than anything else but it's also like who other than the post would get the secretary of state lake welcome. They're building right and say congratulations. And so it. Just it was like it. Felt so closed off to the reality of what was happening at other newspapers and media outlets across the country but b.j as being sickly situated there in washington across the street from the new post buildings were probably like the largest concentration of homeless. People really are in downtown. Dc and it's like we're here having wattage used and you know they're always a really truly poor people outside and you can't even really see them from the windows you know and it kinda just that sense of detachment especially in the wake of the trump administration. It wasn't just about the news. Media's detachment it was about like how detached they were from like the rest of the american experience. So let's talk about that then. The kind of homogeneity ingenuity of newsrooms they tend to be rich cosmopolitan also geographically homage homogeneous. Which i thought was a really interesting. You know part of your book and white and there are ramifications for that dynamic and also the fact that journalism is not when you're starting out it's essentially really difficult to make ends meet if you're coming at it from a a background. That isn't somebody who has money already in the bank. So talk about all of these factors that craft modern newsrooms especially at some of these elite institutions that have so much sway over the way empower. See things and and and how the conversation goes. Yeah sammy i think that like when we talk about what's going on in journalism in america unlike the decline of trust in us and all of bash. It's it's often raised from like a supply or a demand side problem like people. Don't want this stuff where people are reading misinformation or whatever you know the current you know people don't trust us anymore whereas Really you need to focus the debate on what you can control and what you can control is what your newsroom looks like and what your news looks like great and so what is happening right now as kind of like a survival of the biggest so lot of the smaller more local and when i say local like the chicago tribune i don't mean like a small tiny paper because those two are very strict threaten but It's it's like. The big papers are more with the biggest audiences because of the way digital economics. Work are more likely to survive and those big papers are in places that have traditionally been media capitals. Ray like new york in dc. And it's not just papers. It's like cnn right and c. n. n.'s..

"But that doesn't mean that bush didn't like but the reason maybe people believe in that a little bit more or it's faded a bit or at the time it was it was more widespread was because of that very kernel of truth there And here yeah Big pharma is largely an evil enterprise. That milks people for profit. But it's really just a function of capitalism. Honestly when when you can you can modify health care. But but but the skepticism towards big pharma in this country is warranted. We've essentially milked people of their money and order to pay for their healthcare and people are resentful of these mega corporations that charge them. Four hundred dollars for necessary diabetes treatment or whatever the case may be so that is something that is being very very cynically weaponized by people who are in the pocket of those various industries politicians in the pocket of these very industries and like fox. News has no problem with big pharma. Are you kidding me. It's just the shadow of it that they wanna use. If you want to stick it to big pharma you force them to release their patents to the world. About these new high-tech vaccine's instead of recommending another products. People go out and find right like that's what the i think. Part of this is about why they don't want you to know about it. And that's why they're your. We're asking you to buy something that puts money directly in their pockets. That's the thing. Is i think there is. I think big pharma if we wound district's them for a moment they have this new technology that has been juiced by government funding and the necessity of a pandemic and they want to keep control of it So that's what we need to.

"dr nikki" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"All of our links are in the podcast and youtube descriptions now back to emma well folks. The majority report is not above our guests. Not being able to us not being able to hold of our guests so unfortunately yeah on friday. We had technical difficulties not going smoothly. As i thought the takeover. I guess it's a little bit harder than one would imagine to know. This could well on new brandon. New brendan bradley Emma's takeover or matt as the steady hand. That's been here for a long time. All right so yeah. Unfortunately we can't get a hold of nikki. But i was looking forward to the interview. Maybe show she'll be able to join us but for now we're gonna talk a little bit more about the news In that with bradley's new new brendan steady hand behind the scenes. So let's actually since we were talking a little bit about the vaccine before. I wanna talk about or show a clip of fox. News response This morning so this morning fox news Responded to the news that the pfizer vaccine is going to be getting full approval by the fda and this is a clear example of how these goalposts are going to be shifted. No matter what the outcome is by fox news. And just so you understand the ridiculousness of this. This is dana perino. This is considered to be one of the news. People right is that fair to categorize her as such. Yeah i mean. My memory is that she was like a bush spokesperson. Yes yes. she's you know has the pattern of been around for a two decades so right so essentially though. This is dana. Perino considered to be on the on the right but fine with the establishment. Not a crazy loon. This isn't mike lindell here. Outflanking trump on. Kobe denial honestly because we played the clip of trump encouraging people to get the vaccine there moving to be responsible. But you have to be free. So let's just fend abound and here is how fox respond to the news about the full approval. This morning says look for you now. The fda just giving full approval to pfizer's copay vaccine. It's the first vaccine to get that full approval and in record time to that. Has critics asking if the process was rushed was it wasn't so another thing that they often do is hide behind. Critics are saying this when really. It's just this is the narrative that we want to push for our particular audience. We knew this was going to happen. The the the full approval thing was just in terms of the anti vaccines own logic. Faulty in and of itself. Because it's all how can we trust the government. How can we trust the for profit big pharma. That's trying to push this vaccine on us. It was just an anomaly right. They could point to one and once it was solved. They weren't going to look. At as if i guess that's fixed. I can change my mind about the vaccine's now yeah right exactly and so and so this is going to be what they run with now. Now that it has its full approval. Oh the full approval was to swift. The full approval happened in a way. That i don't necessarily trust one. What the entire thing boils down to is mistrust of science and institutions and the fact that the democrat is in control of the executive branch at this current moment and it also boils down to for a lot of evangelical christians like this religious pure body thing and trusting in a higher power. So there's a lot of stuff that they're playing into right now but it's particularly unconscionable when you have the news daytime programming of fox news more immorally approaching a vaccine conversation than even trump is at in his current like position because trump's like i dunno jab. Get the get the shot. I got the shot. I want everybody to go back to normal life. I mean that's or i want you to go back to normal life. And i think a lot of republican powers that imagine he's still talking to people. We're seeing this shift there too where they're worried about this anti vaccine push alienating suburban women suburbanites throughout the country people who they still need to court for them to have any electoral success. Even though of course there might be some backlash given the biden's approval rating is falling at the current moment. Yeah i mean. I'm not convinced that they're playing this electorally. I mean it's pretty outrageous to say that the planet pandemic correctly. Or not like i. I i think the the problem they have is republicans always appeal to the people that are unaffected by the brutal reality of the systems. We have set up and instead you just drive them to the polls with fear about stuff but the problem is when the fear is something that they're saying you won't be affected by and it turns out that all these states thought okay. We're going to be done with it. The santa's made another gambled that He just be able to sort of bluff his way through this and go away on its own and appeal and a whole bunch of people compared to say new york which saw rising cases too but not a similar rise in deaths. At least not so far. And that's that's people know the people who died fundamentally we lost over half a million people in this country and i. It's it's crazy to me that we still have this amount of resistance to. But i think this is republican. The data is in right like we've never had such a massive data set of hundreds of millions of people getting the vaccine and we've had millions and tens of millions of people who've gotten cova and we see what the effects of one are and what the effects of the other are we don't need. I don't even think the after fda to tell us that with that's why the emergency use happened and then we had a big experiment basically and it played out quite obviously but when when you've trained an entire population to look for alternative answers to dominant narratives and be inherently mistrustful of what a consensus of experts. Say they're gonna find wrinkles. In even the largest of experiments and data sets and the most conclusive outcomes of those Of those things so conspiratorial thinking being stoked of course. It has its ramifications. And that's clear in terms of just like pure death total. Yeah we should also say. Mississippi officials war against using livestock ivermectin to prevent covert nineteen after rise in poison. Control calls them. So that's what another part of this is to sell miracles. I was hydroxy chloroquine now. Ivermectin ivermectin isn't like a d warmer. Yes like some sort of parasite control thing. So you're cool with taking a wermer but not a shot off label use. Yeah yeah are like. I don't understand where that line is. Drawn ivermectin been around for many decades now for this particular use for this novel. Corona virus ultimately the cynical way to that they play on the like sort of pharma skepticism as in lake. They don't want you to take this horse to wermer drug because it'll cost them much money. It's like as downstream from the the elite critique. That tucker carlson engages exactly right. It's it's basically just like the socialism fools sorts of like. Take as much as you need. But don't implicate capitalism. Only whatever you do yeah and unfortunately when you have conspiracy theories of that kind of their most pernicious are the ones that have kernels of truth and skepticism to them like for example. Bush did nine eleven. The we should be skeptical of the bush administration and put in henry kissinger on the investigation to yeah. We should be skeptical of the cia and the pentagon and the bush administration's motives because they were clearly to just start a war with iraq at by any means possible..

"I do agree. You gotta do what you have to do. But i recommend take vaccines i did it. It's good take the vaccine but you got that's okay. You got your freedoms. But i happened to take the vaccine. If it doesn't work you'll be the first to know. Okay i'm calling alabama say. Hey you know what but it is working but you do have your freedoms you have to keep you have to maintain that you have to maintain that and you gotta get your kids back to school right so he walked it back a bit there right. You hear those booze. He walked back like four times. he he did he. If you just count the butts in that sense you freedoms. But i took it. Get your freedoms that is The kids back to school the dictionary definition of mixed messaging. Well yeah certainly. He is crowd surfer. He tried to walk back and make the crowd laugh. But there were some tepid kind of frustration there or or Ensured nece that you could feel in the crowd but as i say when you create a monster. Don't be surprised when you can't control the monster. And even trump who tried to pocket cova denial As part of a political strategy when he was leaving office not not telling anybody that he'd been vaccinated and it came out a few months later not revealing his axe nation status. Even he can't control it. Because i think it's a it's an indication of a few things but one of the main takeaways from me is. The man is is not in control of the narrative anymore. He's now visible in the way that he once was and part of that has to do with the fact that he is no longer on social media sites major ones and he's having difficulty communicating publicly and news organizations have made decisions about not. Just airing every word that he says which was a huge part of his victory in two thousand sixteen just not showing bernie sanders rallies at all and waiting with baited breath at trump's empty podium for example but these diehards yeah they'll cling to everything he says one hundred percent the maga- crowd will finish your but but the many of them are right now. Just moving onto news sources new sources or new politicians or marjorie taylor green or whoever to satiate their impulses in this area. Yeah i mean this is the difference between the re the gop and the democrats. The democrats like to control and sort of finely guide the enthusiasms of their base whereas the gop. We'll take whatever enthusiasms they can get where they can get him because their main project is pretty appealing like basically just lower tax cuts for the wealthy and the thing is like trump could trump could tell them look. Just get the vaccine. You idiots right and like people would boo but eventually that would have a big effect but they don't wanna do that because ultimately this is too valuable for them electorally exactly and a good reminder to everybody that in the fall trump was getting his base all riled up about the vaccine not being approved fast enough and this is very much in keeping matinee talking about this before the show with a long conservative undercurrent about approval experimental drugs. There are saying oh you need to let the free market decide and you need to open these up to capitalism so that these treatments can't be behind some government wall of approval. Yeah this is a common moral blackmail. Take you'll hear from the right. When particularly the democrats are in power that you're a red tape is stopping ex cure from getting to patients. You're basically killing those people right and now and now full. Fda approval coming down the pike from from the fda and so there should be no excuses anymore but as we'll get to later in the program that's not the case that this is just the the latest iteration of shifting the goalposts but i would imagine trump going forward if he still wants to run. Who knows if that's the case anymore. I would imagine he steers away from some of this vaccine denial. But how can you again like they. They need to like try to harvest. As many of those people they can while still getting people vaccinated at the rate where they can open a business in stuff like that. So i mean it's it's pretty gross. I mean i know. Cove is rising in north dakota north dakota's one of the worst as far as getting vaccinated and You know. I know weddings happening in the few weeks. And it's you know ugly. Good see but ultimately i think he just need to mandate the stuff and that's the b- ultimately the good news about the cdc thing is it will allow mandates to be a lot easier and they just need to be done and if there's a protest people could protest And if if they choose to get out of the streets to protest against the vaccine that can stop them from being disease vector as opposed to like say police brutality and violence. That's on them. They can get on protest right. All right we're gonna take a quick break. And when we come back we will be joined by. Dr nikki usher if we have for our no throat a sam. He's got some ads for you from the past. Hey folks Folks are always looking for an opportunity to help others out and Sometimes people do at the end of the year. Sometimes they do a quarterly. Sometimes they just do it randomly And for me..

The number still remain quite high with the delta variant. It feels like we're hitting some sort of peak or plateau. There's no way to know quite yet but one can only hope because especially now that the fda has decided to give pfizer vaccine full authorization. I was told that that's all these anti vaccine needed. And then they're going to be ready to just get the job in line the next day. Forgive my skepticism in that area. Because let's turn to alabama former president. Donald trump holding nationalist rally in alabama on saturday and alabama has been in the news a lot recently for running out of icu beds as delta runs. Rampant tragically over the state one of the lease vaccinated states in the country. However in a twist the man donald trump decided to urge his audience to get vaccinated. And it didn't go that well for him especially because he could breather far ch and the whole crowd would cheer normally but it seems like he's created a monster and he can't control it anymore.

"dr nikki" Discussed on The High Functioning Hotspot

"Is dr nikki star. Nikki such an interesting and functioning person me because we actually have a little bit of overlap and our pass so i'm a clinical psychologist and previously. I was yoga teach. her doctor. Star was a -sition who became a yoga teacher. So there's some really interesting overlap. There and i was super excited just to have the chance to talk to her. And i'm not gonna say too much about it. Because i feel like our talk unfolds in a really interesting way and i just wanna let people follow the conversation. But i'm very excited to share the conversation with you and i hope that you enjoy it as much as i do. So thanks for taking the time to chat with me. I know that you are a medical doctor and then also like me super into yoga. I'm obviously not a medical doctor. I have a phd in clinical psychology But you have a very unique background and as a psychologist. I was just really interested to learn more about you. Yeah so it's so nice to see how A clinician also found the path to yoga. And i think that's happening more and more all the time in ice stumbled upon. You know i was in medical school i was at nyu. I was living the city life. And i was very much into health so i came in and go to the gym and going to work out and let me do a yoga class for like stretching like the body of yogis like it's toned. It's fit you have to be able to really move the body. A certain way. And i did gymnastics growing up and i always liked to be to move and then in my medical school they also decided to have yoga club so they hired this incredible teacher who i'd like areas the reason i really fell in love with you because i tried it a few times before. Now's like this is boring. There's no point but it was because the teacher and the style didn't really match and it wasn't you know maybe they weren't very seasoned teacher. So i share that because if anyone is looking to try yoga or get into it i always say. Try it at three different places with three different teachers before you really want to say that you don't like it. That's what happened to me. He was the third person and the third more of an jasa kind of style. And i just became hooked and i get so high altered consciousness and i always feel like i was a better person. After yoga i would be more relaxed. I very much have had especially the more in the past four meditation. Yoga came into my life. Like more morvai type a tendencies bossy take z's and a lot of that started to melt away the more. I did yoga interesting. Wow so yeah kinda into my life more from space of in routine and then gradually it was like i would go to classes and people would ask me teach gun on like i don't teach i kind of chuckle about that and then little did i know that after medical school i would find myself in the yoga teacher training which happened by accident because i was just traveling around the world like i wanna go to a yoga retreat. That's a month long and that doesn't exist. It's usually teacher trainings. That are my blondes. So it's like okay. I'll i'll deepen my practice and have the training and who knows maybe someday i'll guide yoga but i really went back to new york. Instead of going back to western medicine. I started working with private clients. And who's doing retreats around the world and that was the start of it that's awesome yeah so just to clarify. I am actually a yoga teacher. Who found my way to becoming a clinician. So i started doing yoga when i was seventeen and was doing all kinds of other stuff and then I didn't even become a clinical psychologist. Until i was in my thirties and so it was really exciting to see the way that everything i had been doing for a long time with. Mindfulness and the body mind connection was also finally like actually really being embraced and researched with like mindfulness based stress reduction. And all that other stuff that The clinical world is really into now. So i wanted to just also check with you. You mentioned something. I wanted to ask you about that. You felt like yoga helped you to not be as you said like such a type a. person And one of the things that we have a lot of taipei listeners. I think on this show because a lot of the high functioning people tend to be. You know a little bit Kind of high on the conscientiousness and all of that type of stuff and i think. Sometimes they're almost afraid. That yoga or meditation is gonna like make them soft. And i'm trying to kind of help them understand that in a way it can actually sometimes even make you sharper so like while it's true that yoga can certainly help you to just relax and chill out sometimes. Do you also feel like sometimes it brings you some fire and drive the snow when i found yoga did was it was able to slow me down because i am in width slowing down. You actually gain more quote unquote superpowers. So what i mean by that. Is i find that. A lot of people who are taipei. Gogo go have long checklists. There's a high adrenaline charge and this sympathetic nervous system is our fighter flight. Nervous system that gets activated. And it's kind of what gives us that adrenaline and in the in the rush to like make things happen and go. Go go and live back. There can be like mistakes or yet you do have a high level of conscientiousness but there may be like an anxiety there or a like a very kurt kind of energy like short and quick and to the point and what i found was with yoga. It's like i was able to slow down. I was able to see like the path that would be the least amount of energy in the most aligned and work from place of more of a knowing and an alignment versus trying to do everything because overtime. What i've learned is it's about working smarter not harder and i'm more about working less hours to get the same results versus like having the have a because it's kind of this energy i'm so busy in. It becomes a cool to be busier something but the truth is here to enjoy life as well. So yoga me to really see that definitely so you kind of touched on something there which i think is also really interesting about you just with my interest in joining people. So you know you're obviously a medical doctor your yoga any and you're also a businesswoman. Really i mean like you've you've probably all of this into a really successful company and and brand and i was on your website and it looks like i was clicking links that were taking me to like clothing for sale You know just all kinds of really interesting stuff So i'm just curious you know. Do you use like a a business advisor or is this kind of just like some additional super talent.

When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far

"Going Vegan Veggie. You simply eating more veggies can all be healthy lifestyle choices but if doing so gives you. Zayed he about hanging out with friends makes you fear certain foods. It can actually be quite dangerous because yes being to healthy can actually be unhealthy for some restrictive. Eating is a short live stage that ricochets into a junk food rebellion for others. They find their way back to the middle of the road. But for some money the so called healthy way of eating can become a true obsession and at its most extreme. An eating disorder known as author. Xia this week's food for thought explores when healthy becomes unhealthy with Dr Nikki Stump Surgeon TV presenter and author of pretty unhealthy. Helen Nikki. Hi Thank you for having me. Really Nice debate here per exciting. I am beyond excited. I think since receiving your book getting to read it in being completely inspired and upset fully instagram Graham Wall. And just seeing what you've been getting up to you it's a pleasure to have you in the. Uk's at thank he owner thank you. I think we'll start with whether someone who's we'll go right him. Web someone's been diagnosed with an each use solder or slightly lesser degree. All serve preoccupation of being unhealthy. One is that unhealthy the occupation of being too healthy. Yeah I think that's a really good question because I think you've kind of alluded to it. Then you in in that question that use. You're walking a fine line. It's it's It's very easy to step from one thing to something that is is not so great for you. So you know. It's reasonable to be conscious and observant. About what you ate and making sure that you're exercising not smoking and drinking and all those kinds of things that's important but then when you get really caught up in it to a point where it is impacting your mental health. Your physical health. Your social well-being forget about that. A Lot. That's why. I think we start to get into territory where you are you looking at something. That's possibly not that good for you. You'll completely right the so many factors involved. I think for anyone to just identify acknowledging themselves. I'm not quite happy right. Now is quite a big step because often people in this country. We still have a thing as what at the moment weight is often seen as such a defining health. I don't know what your thoughts are. Matt Yeah I think white is is not going anywhere as as something that people Reach full particularly In an instant to to make a judgment about their own health or somebody else's health but it's really just not that simple econ deny that in some situations in some circumstances. Some people yes. Your weight is a factor in that can be at either end as well But I think that to look at someone and say Oh look at yourself and say I'm unhealthy because of I figure on the Sky Oh That's not rise. It doesn't really have have the support that we think it does. Yeah I think so. We use Via Mind it. It's so tricky because I got a lot of clients coming in clinic saying all the doctors told me. I'm just above the BMI. Actually have any health problems yeah so I mean BMI. I think is rightly criticised and analyze. And I think that if you're applying it to an individual it's a tool that has very little use if you're applying it to screen someone so looking for problem if you're applying it to perhaps population level or re as a research tool that has validity. But you know I think one of the things that people don't always understand about science and research and medicine and so on and so forth is that you know our tools always in perfect and one of the things that makes perfect is the way that we use them. So if we use be my willy nilly then yeah it's not. It wasn't designed for If we use it to look at an individual in front of us and decide if they're healthy that's wrong but if you're using it for the things that's been designed for it has some Information giving capability. And that's where we need to be using it I completely agree. It's just a wider understanding because things can be taken so literally all the time. Want to believe in one number having the solution or absolutely everything without simple you can be over way to be very fit. Yeah absolutely I you know. One of the things that is important in your health is not necessarily that defined. Yes Oh no I'm I'm above or below a number It's actually what you do and we know in particularly for women that no mash. They're they're they're white so their their body composition that if they live a healthy lifestyles in they take all the boxes for nutrition darn smart etcetera that they have a very significant health benefit. So I I'm I've really moved away from from that kind of thinking that you know. We have to get you to a low beam. I will take into account solely secretly with my patients. I'm very focused on what they're doing. Now I'm just trying to get them to to be. Active for example is is just one simple thing that's so refreshing into comfortable adult as well because this is something that unfortunately we see such a lot of this country because medics in this country. Don't get enough nutritional education. Yeah lifestyle education and to hear you say that is wonderful. Yeah even with that in mind. I'm just one piece of the puzzle. You know so if I identify that someone Is is needing some help. With what eat or exercise you reach for your for your experts. Now I'm sure like like the NHL. We're pretty eater stretched with results. So you know. It's not always easy to do that. And I. I think that doctors should be able to give out the basics just like You know my allied health colleagues give out the basics of what I do as well you know. We all work in this together by. I think it is time to to sort of change up our thinking and the way we give advice across the board. Yeah completely. I think is often a misconception. As well that it's all about overeating Ashley. You can be overweight and be quite malnourished as well. Connie that for me. I don't think people realize no and I think the way to to look at this is to Magin if you are overweight and you your diet consists less assay solely of takeout food so that that's all you rating by doing that by eating that very Calorie dense food You are unfortunately missing out on a lot of nutrients So for example you know are based on our. That's a word that is very loaded by mere medically speaking someone who paps has a extra white in the medical complications of it they can be still lacking in in Macronutrients. They can still be lacking micronutrients. you know so. It's not that straightforward to say to say that all that they're very well nourished nor that actually might not be exactly. You can be both ends of the spectrum I said and be completely malnourished. Do you see this getting worse and Western society off. I mean that's sort of what the data suggests you know so if you look at you know. Uk Australia us now. We're all fairly on power. We have pretty similar Spectrum of issues I think health issues and outside of the sphere of food and weight and so on and so forth with pretty similar and I. I do think that that it is the all of these things are increasing And then not just about US eating too much You know all of these choices that we might happen in a system. That is designed to make eight to macho exercise too little. I mean near tobacco. Advertising is literally designed to get. You know it's you know we're not we're not failing ourselves we are filed by system at lodge.

"Like a washing. Your hands shouldn't be a new thing or something you have to learn. I mean this. Did you already know so? Yeah absolutely but but at the same time I appreciate the increase in caution in fact I I really think in this is not just as a healthcare provider that I have this opinion. This is really just opinion. Nikki Green as a human being and I really do believe that. That's how going combat this. We're going to come at this just by good old common sense. You know So I I do think increase in hand washing increase in personal hygiene. You know of course in my office. I'm doing a lot more elbow bumps and things like that then on handshakes but again that is not so new for corona virus. That's something that we do even during flu season like I said so you know. We're really taking an abundance of caution to keep our patient say first and foremost but even our team members safe you know that's really at the end of the day. My job is to make sure that I keep my team really safe so that they can help in. Turn keep our patients safe. So we're doing the normal commonsense things and I really think that's how we as society are going to come out from the corona and I would probably venture to say to or I believe this to be true when you go through certain crisis. I remember the city I used to was from. They had a water shortage in they had to go to water rationing and eventually became one of the first cities that was going to reuse the The the toilet water if you will. And they were recycling right but it what it did was everybody even today which is five or six or seven years ago now today. They're much more conservative with their water and more aware sleeves. Things like this help people to become more aware in their daily lifestyle such as not a recently. Read where you know washing your hands with soap and warm. Water was the most effective way and absolutely. It's the most effective way so hopefully that that as you say that becomes more of a standard. It's very interesting. I commend you. You know your your offices already using protocols that you didn't have to say oh my goodness we gotta go to calm three either ready for this because we don't know what we're doing you were already there. You're out of using it you know. I read something today earlier. It was actually on on a dental website. Podcast what to do during the crisis and there was just three little steps that says at US GET SUPPORT SYSTEM. Show empathy and lead and right. And you've already done that. You know you rather support system that you have or or a system in place you reduce show empathy towards the comedian absolutely concerned and you can absentee explain and then you lead. So Yeah I. I totally agree. And that is one thing I've shared with my team. As well as much as we hate cancellations and you know things like that do disrupt our day. Disrupt our schedule you know. If a patient calls legitimately concerned about their own well-being we certainly don't we've never had cancellation fees and things like that. That's just not part of our culture but by no means we're GONNA make someone still bad about their own abundance of caution. That's really an individual decision. But I do want people to know that. Probably your local dental offices. It's going to be one of your safest places to be besides maybe your home during Corona virus season. Even the people working within your office typically understand the benefit of of the you know the sterile environment and making you're amenable so even living outside of their office at the regular home they're using those same profession absolutely better to go your to your dental office than it would be walking around the mall. There's definitely definitely some truth to that. Yeah Yeah we'll just wanted to jump on here have a quick call about it again. Great job what you're already doing in your office and I know with your husband Bob's office I'm sure doing the same and Hopefully this is just a little insight to help. People answer those questions and remained calm. Raf Me this is not always freak out and God give us a spirit of fear so we need to remember that as well. That's exactly right something. I actually shared with my team earlier this week. Just about a lot of things that are going on corona virus and markets falling. And such like that. We're in kind of volatile week or two in the US and something that was revealed to me on one of my early morning runs is that he's still in control. You know so at the end of the day there. We can't control these things but I do know who is in control so I'm just choosing to go into it cautiously without fear as you say he he still uncontrolled is just always here. He's still on the throne. Nothing chances. That's exactly right so I'm grateful for Mickey.

"The insurance person finally picked up after twenty five minutes or the phone ringing in the background and they can't pick up the phone ring and so you know and and granted it to every for everybody as much as they know. The priority is the patient in front of them. They've been sitting on hold for five minutes so they put the patient in front of them on hold so that they can finally get this insurance. Verification heard some consulting business say which one's most important is at the person in front of years personal phoning said both. Yeah they're both important. That's exactly and that's a hard call in May. It's that was like super low hanging fruit for me. Let's just get rid of that. Altogether we can absolutely train someone anywhere. Two inch to verify insurance benefits We really customized Matt Process with Melody because we wanted her in in again if our listeners are listening we don't all want our insurance benefits verify the same way. There's procedures that I in my practice that Dr Down. The street doesn't do in his or her practice that we don't need it divert our benefits the same way athletes implants in my practice. I need no. If we have insurance implant. I do partial crowns in my practice. I'd even know if we have have benefits for that someone down the road. He doesn't do those procedures. Doesn't mean that. So that's one of the things I love about support. Vdi Is it's not a one-size-fits-all you train your member to do it. The way you want it then so I would say that's probably the biggest obstacle we have. We represent over one hundred offices now and the biggest obstacle we find is that they need to understand. They have to do the training. We now when you came on board we weren't even doing the basic training do now. So actually you trained melody which is a good Good point how much time did you have to allocate? I remember you and I had a conversation after melody had been on for maybe a month and and and I don't think you're team was giving them proper training so her about the training process and what it took quite. We were beginning kids. But even hindsight I'm happy to win the Guinea pig. I still you know. Let's go back to the cost savings that we have for informed melody versus one of my own team members were given one of mine lower pay team members. I'm still employing melody from any thirty percent of that cost so if it does take me a little more time up so you know what I'm saying. Thirty saving your same seventy percents. I've sent us right. Yeah that's really how I know and and it so even if it does take me a little bit more time front to get my team member with support. Bbs On in Harare train. I still come out ahead in the end and I kept looking at it that way with the end goal in mind right so in the beginning. There were some hiccups. There's no doubt you know we had to figure out. How are they how she gonNA communicate with my teen? That probably varies in your experience from office to office his on if you have boy own systems and things like that. Are you actually shift a phone over? You've got a phone system and you took one of your voice. extensions shifted over so we actually program that plugged. Into NASCAR. If I'm not mistaken and you just pick up the phone and dial her extension your back behind. She's like engine zero eight on our phone systems. It's a we pick up the phone doll bureau. Eight in we talk nobody in Harare Zimbabwe. Which that's pretty amazing. And so once. We got some of those. Little hiccups figured out then train the capabilities. You know because we literally an instant communication ignorance so you know Insurance Verification is probably the most important of new patients coming in the door. Because they're new to us. We really don't know how their insurance is going to work. And so we could literally schedule a new patient for a one o'clock timeslot. We schedule at Nine A. M. we could pick up our phones. We can think of our phones. Call Melody Accenture Nate and say hey melody take a look at that. One o'clock new patient. We just scheduled. We need those insurance benefits. You could have that done before. But if they weren't walks in the door whereas before in before we had melody that would have been a burden on my front sti and the reality is I would say. Eighty plus percent of the time to just didn't get done by the time that new patient came in so then were limited as to how we can with our treatment plans but patients come in. They do want to know how their insurance going to help. You know we have a lot of conversations around how little they are going to help and were very transparent about that but they still. They know that got it. They know they've got the car. Some of them have waited years to go to the dentist because they thought they had to wait until they had this deal insurance. So when they come in and even if you're not an insurance dependent practice patients WANNA know. How their entrances health so we were able to answer that question instantaneously without my team having to take that twenty thirty forty five minute phone call just to. There is a says not only taking a lot of time off of your your your team that you have here I know a lot of offices. Also use a third party company and there's really no flat fee for people to do that so from my understanding. They're people that. Start off with anticipation of. They're going to a eight nine hundred dollars a month but it gets done based on per verification of what? They're doing that verification. If it's just getting in if they're in their system fact originally talked to an office that said they were spending over three thousand dollars a month on verifications. I can imagine and and they just kind of spiraled so a one of the benefits with what we do this for. Eds and I think you see that is worked. Melody worked forty hours a week She she's able to work same office our you do so it's just literally another team member. But you're not providing the office the staff of benefits all those things that make me with having an in-office as now referred to it as insourcing outsourcing. We bill we feel like that. It's not an outside company. It's actually a person in your company's we refer to insourcing so so you're not seeing. The training is an obstacle. I'm you would have had to hire somebody or you traders well absolately and back to your point about You know we do see melody as our import so anything. That melody isn't doing exactly right or anything that she's not able to get done in a timely manner that we think needs to be this dark so it's just like any one of our other employees that underperforming we go back and we look at ourselves with. Nelly doesn't perform but if she were to look at ourselves and say okay where have we laughed and drank so back to your question of you know like paying her verification if our main priority is for her just verify our new patients then that you know six patients a day maybe that was a whole lot more our forty hour workweek verifying six patients day? So then that's where we could customize what we had. Mellon do well now. Maybe we want her to verify her. There's nine this right so and we wanted to verify those. Maybe we wanted to verify for every single person on schedule if you were paying for verification that you wouldn't do. That would just skyrocket. But yet if Melanie has the time and we found that to be the best use of her time than we have the leverage together as many any opportunities where you've been able to use them for other tasks we've talked about insurance. I know she's in your extension. Can she gets overflow? Carlos like you're here today on a Wednesday afternoon our Wednesday happening the the priority for someone say disappointed but we don't light not being available for patients on so for the last two years as long as we've had melanie employed basically answers our phones every Wednesday apple or there's times when you know our front desk numbers they get out early or something I do still like for my team members to be the earth contact on the phone dislike. You know amber you know Jay your patient mind. Sorry Himalayan if any of you out there wanting I'm willing to transfers records but anyway anyway just give me a call. No but you know I like for when you call my office to make your next appointment. I like the you know amber right now. You also know melody but not everyone else so primarily unlike from my team members to answer my phones that hey when it's not available. I want somebody. Yeah Yeah better than rolling over to the entering service or take a message and get back to one of the things that a lot of people ask you hear that word. Outsourcing you immediately go to a couple of countries where there can be a difficult and their language and understand. They're very talented people. But if you maybe tell our listeners a little bit about the language and how that is a asta yes it's been a very positive impact. I mean they actually seek a beautiful dialect of English. You know to me. It kind of sounds South Africa. Got a little bit of English. You know sound clean the little I get all. Those confused grew another truth. I think it's a beautiful sound to the English language. They are very proficient. So there's no language barrier at all just had a little bit of an accent to it and they're also very highly educated. I mean these are smart people that we work yet over Harari and so you know there even if they have you written communication so melanie vessel written the occasion or she will use our system in Texas patients. Use Our system a female patient so the grammar is always correct. Punctuation is harassed very highly educated. Very smart so I never worry about their written indication at the same time we have to train it right so I want to get back to that because I don't want doctors to think that it just comes loaded that way just like no other employees that you hire one hundred percent house preloading. They don't need. And so you do have to do the trainings. That they're saying that you want them say that you can feel confident. And they'd be well. I do know we talked about the training out. We had an office in the actually in Houston that for three or four weeks. They were struggling a busy practice. Like yourself a woman dentist there. That has a nice practice and and she said they weren't catching on. We realized we weren't training on what she did. I think for two weeks. She advocated one hour in the morning. One of her team members would be hands on with her person in our center in Zimbabwe. And they would actually train them what they need to do in two weeks time and everything so. I did something similar to that. I put one person in my office in charge of no basically melody or anyone else that we may choose to add on from supporting the US is in her apartment. Okay because it also happened to be that she was the one doing the most complaining about you know well and also maybe complaining sometimes but you didn't know he was doing something right. I said okay. She's now member right. So I'm GonNa put that on you to make sure that you get or three. And I knew that this degrom volume on had the skill knowledge and had the time to get tying and so once. I did that. It was like all of a sudden. You know Vastra now what would what would. What would it be likely pulled me out from under right exactly? Yeah Melanie as a as a treasured employee of hers now in but she also understand anything. Melody is lacking or anyone. Whispers lacking comes back to US shrink so he goes on her plate Mitch and now we've changed a little bit of that. We do let people know up front. The training melody has had her hip. Certification Olive are ones that we retrain them now through a week long. Cherished were on course where they learn about anatomy from a local dentist there. They go through to get their HYPOCR certification and so we have a little more trained but still every office does that one of US interest patients different. They may just want to get it verbally. I may want to post it to their software. So there's all kinds of ways which that's done so when they this has been great. I think it opens some is to some others that may be thinking about using it especially dentist in the D. S. O. World We we refer to it. As centralization of services may be have three or four offices that are having to do various added be consolidated so we just appreciate your business our lowest customer in the dental world now and just to show you.

"Accomplish more with your life increase the productivity of your team and make a difference in the lives of people around the world. I'm your host Jay Oliver and thank you for joining us. Hi this is j w Oliver. We are bringing another edition of global impact. We have a super exciting guests. The friend and dentists is well Miss Nikki. Corinne from Fort Worth Texas Nikki. Thank you for joining us. Absolutely thank you for having me. I'm excited to talk about what your new it. Well when Nikki came on board we didn't even have support. Dds As part of global buffet. She so early in the process she was a live of our Guinea pig. If you will Nikki was expressed. Her husband is also a dentist. And we've been friends for thirty plus years Baba and so we were sitting at dinner one that just discussing what we did at global BP solutions and she was like hey with this work and a little office. And I thought man. I've been in the dental business myself thirty years but I don't know and so the concept for support. Dds was folded out of that and Nikki agreed to have a comanche. Hard melody and So so nick. If you will tell us about the process we didn't really know what they were GonNa do. We didn't understand E- OB's and entrance verifications whatnot. Right list. But Nicky tell us about your experience or how you got started with with melody and a little bit of a process. Yeah sure so. I do remember that we were kind of sitting there chatting about what Global PP was doing as far as in the accounting world. And some of that kind of stuff. And and I remember talking about. I think we could use some of those types of services outsourcing type services in dentistry and it was a little bit unprecedented particularly in the private practice no it some of the really large group practices. Obviously outsourcing some of the smaller guys. That was not really know something we were thinking about and so I literally went back to work on. Monday just started looking for things that I like. My staff was doing then. I felt like could be outsourced to someone else and not just because I didn't want them doing it. I wanted my team here in the practice doing things that were more impactful so in our practice we know our number one priority is the patient. That's in front of us but unfortunately so many of the things we have to do behind the scenes take so much time and energy. We can't give timely energy to the patients in front of us so one of bearing first things that I remember telling you. I want a melody to start. Doing was insurance. So we're for service practice. We're not even heavily insurance attendance and it might be some listeners out there thinking oh well. I'm not interested in fact we aren't either but we still consider ourselves insurance friendly and we WANNA help. Our patients maximize their interests and one of the ways we do that we have to know what their benefit 'cause every plan out there is different and every employer even within certain plans is different and so that was taking hours of mine. My very well trained highly skilled team members second hours of their time every day to just verify benefits on patients so that was a low hanging fruit for me with melody is to get her started verifying entrance. What was that initially? I mean when you say this you take the insurance verification. Was that taken twenty hours a week of your staff or to you know and the reality is it's different. I wish I could tell you what it was taking every single day there were times. Ingraham you on. I'm busy gun dentistry. So do I really know how much of mine? Staffs Todd was doing that. I don't know but I know that I would walk by the front desk and I.
