"Welcome to the casual Fridays. Rei podcast where you'll learn about the wildly profitable niche of land investing active lane investors and everything that happens I'm sitting there with my wife Sweet Jessica and she's looking at outfits in the casual Fridays Rei podcast today. We're GONNA talk about decision fatigue before do that though let's talk about Casual Fridays consulting program guys so without further ado here your host Adam Southie and justice leva hey what's up everybody I'm Adam Southie with my co host Justin's Leyva in this making decision I'm GonNa pick the same shirt every time pick the same shirt every time pants you know that's starting to get into that but when you look at like somebody that does this part time they have a full-time job I for business life and everything we do and so as me on my quest for information consuming as much information as I can and putting two and two together with normal life in there decisions thank you should wear dress anyway keep going yeah so but I I think about that and I think about how when I see these real world but yeah my closet is smaller I might my clothes wardrobe is what I actually wear wear the same shirts will naturally your body's telling you my position when you make zero decisions really okay now because you're spending twelve eighteen hours on a train conductor what to eat what if the sleep should I go to the restroom and things pop up I here's the theory of it I see the real world pop up and then I tie it back to land every day just so figure it could be something to help them Business Steve Jobs on me no and that's and that's a great example of the extreme version of that is just cutting that out in a black turtleneck everyday that so he didn't have to make that decision if we thought about that in our business and we said hey I want to take every decision point out of our business what could we do in what could we take out I don't know I think about the stuff to like for our fall pictures and I starting to relate this back to you know we've gotta decide on what colors were gonNA wear do I wear blue and Marie they have family then they have their business run their their mind is constantly having make decisions good bad for life you know what to eat were we going how we doing this I'll go crazy if I don't have enough decisions to make like I'll start getting so bored like really yes I've there's been times where just go back to the railroad for instance when you don't have one do something and make decisions in my life but now that we're so busy with work and podcast lately I have been feeling okay like there's a lot going on I need to maybe automate some of the stuff out of it because if she's going to hit you and I'm part of the this decision fatigue is awesome because it goes hand in hand with personal basically we're here to help it doesn't matter if you're brand new to this and he just wants to help picking up pricing county or you've been at it for a while and you're looking for ways to expand I gotta do is go to our website www casual that's basically it yeah you know and during that time I was growing like so impatient and whatnot I need that kind of decision I need that county ability to own do I wear olive with yellow and maybe throwing some ruined we add in a gray there's five of list we all wear the same color do we layer some colors we wear dresses different patterns different I mean that's a lot of suit let's kind of we have a group of people that get some analysis per houses so let's just automating kind of walk through the whole deal like going from not having a county pick right so he had anything that like in particular trying to cut certain decisions out like we still wear a different type of clothing every day so you haven't you haven't gone we say okay we'll just we'll we'll back and forth on that you know when you pick a county we've we've talked about you know do you got thirty three hundred counties or to pick one Friday's Rei dot com click on the consulting tab sign up and then we'll be in touch to help you get started hello hey new week his sir you want to start this one off with my wife probably the if you focus in on that niche now you're not looking at everything you're saying hey out of that fifty states I like the southwest or the northeast or the southeast the fifty states and that's why we frame it that way well one hundred fifty is a little bit easier than thirty three hundred okay well we talk about property niches that we like what what kind of property do you like through selling the property and if you could narrow your business down just make it simple ABCD plan like throw that at me. I'm not asking you to make that decision what you're doing you know so if we said Hey I'm I'm gonNA shop properties with trees and mountains you could essentially circle every mountain range in the United States and and so now you've quadrant into the country into four quadrants and so now you're into you know that one out of fifty became one out of ten yeah that's that's really good point you've been pretty you've thought is how do we make business towards kind of you know I don't want to say you don't have to use your brain you still are it's all focused but it has a a rhyme and reason to why you're doing what GonNa hit me in the shoulder or something I don't want to start it off that way this is the second warning you've given so I'm GonNa sit back over here maybe I'll just be quiet stay completely find that niche or they're scared to make that decision because they don't WanNa make the wrong decision but if you're buying this property like we do whether you're paying thirty or fifty cents on a dollar look and see on Google Earth they have trees next to him and knows your county shop and now you've taken that decision now you said this is what I do and I think a lot of people struggle to find it's a small outsource thing and I could easily sit down and write ten new headings and I could rearrange the copy but that's just something else added to my day that business and I'm like I'm not ready code let me warm up here do it we've already maybe go through one podcast another like this no and that's little or big decisions I I've completely threw off like a little decision craigslist guy can mean that he's like hey I need ten titles I need this need that that's your job it's in or I like this type of property this look for so now we've narrowed it down and you
What Were Watching: DWTS Week 4, Good Place A Girl From Arizona Pt. 2, and West Wing Internal Displacement
"And now an ad from dad right save money on car insurance when you bundle home and auto with progressive right what is this good where did you get this I'm talking to you with the hair yeah where did you get good stuff solid see you practice tonight I got new lyrics for the rap Break Progressive Casualty Insurance Company and affiliates price and coverage match limited by State Law on believable but I thought the dances in general were pretty decent I enjoyed it I thought some people were underscored thoughts relatively good night for him and somebody on the the chat I was watching said they're being too nice to him he's definitely going home that because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting a change this week we once again have three TV related things to talk about we have a west wing episode we have the Second Matt on quite a bit so true but I mean I think it's fun when they do have you know past contestants on hello usually on this podcast we talk about parenting issues but once a week Catherine I like to get together to discuss TV movies books and other entertainment topics people were over scored but you know it's dancing with the stars right scores in which you happened to see at home loose connection right you know she does get it that some people have have an easier time than others but I don't know that you can really factor that into the scoring but to didn't really bring a lot to talk she had her stick and she just worked at for the entire evening so to Joe Lean I don't think so why there's been some some news that this year the pros are not getting as much the good place but first dancing with the stars tonight was a note theme night it was just people dancing to hello and welcome to around two of the parenting roundabout podcast Terry Moran and I'm here with Catherine who let go say hi Katherine like this is fun and then it grew tiresome the whole like because as I said a week or two ago so in the markets go home which I think is a blessing for everyone I think so too and I'm happy he went off on a good night they can say wasn't my idea right my don't blame me put this song with this dance this help hey in the music and costumes and sort of general theme of their dances as they have in the past and boy is it showing so at least without either being accused of pushing certain people or Hyena is it's it's why the show works best if everybody it ready of everyone booing Latin when he says anything at all and this is like her aggie the Disney Disney yes and see if they're going to to show was indeed the way it felt so that was not a particularly suspenseful bottom to even though Karama has been scored very low a vote somewhat in real time I did vote for Warren ahead of time so that I wouldn't miss it but elect what did you think of a guest judge Leah how do we say her name remaining meaney at I saw on line one is way easier because you can set up all your votes and then just put them in later in the evening if you have a change in my actually could put them in you can send them and then you can that's fine it's a long it's a long game now one one week of lower scores gets you more votes following week so he's got potential right and they better did pretty well today you score much better at least it yes on more or less of the same level which I think this year it has been more than other years a fairly even experience level right but it is it girl from Arizona part two which was as the title suggests the second half of the episode from last week and I liked this one yeah since she was laid to you so maybe next week I can suitable for Lauren James in Kate so but it gave me a better sense that she could probably handle dances that are one would consider less inner wheelhouse I thought you did just fine Dayton and James are definitely my favors and not necessarily Loren Loren got nice scores this week I thought Keeton James or underscore but just the way he is so not too much to say yeah it was yeah I mean I i Ashley voted did you vote for both know online and text adjust text so like working to it but I cast the A- and I felt like they got there were some little winds here I still do not enjoy sad Jason Hall and the whole thing with two Chidi and eleanor a good deal better and I felt much better at the end of it and it made me wish that embassy had just given them an hour to put both of these episodes together so then I wouldn't have felt so Argentinian Diego one of them Tangos and I thought she did really well with it and I thought that they were not the judges were insufficiently appreciative not a bad a bad deal at this point of the competition it's not the anthill so so we get we get to see them all watch but I did feel like they were getting a little bit of their group back and I loved the pep talk from Michael to eleanor and there were just some things in it that made me feel good about watching this show I love in a way that the first episode didn't now you said you felt sort of the and so on so moving on from that we watched the second episode of this final season of the good place talk from Michael to Eleanor's yeah where he was telling her that she was not only was she the right person to do this wrongs inappropriate for the dance that was the theme a tangled to town road really old sailing that was a good idea foxtrot bruce really the only person who could do it or the best person but yeah I don't know I guess I left it with a feeling the way you had felt last it is you know votes the votes are the score for the people who maybe aren't such good dancers thinking thoughts right and I did vote this time did you I waited for those three plus I voted for sale for all time Sega also because he was in the bottom two last night yeah he's cute but I would say lauren love so it was you know I'm we'll keep go on and see what happens next I did not care for the scene where they were all is just heartbreak after heartbreak after heartbreak and Kristen Bell sells it so spectacularly that it's not a happy opposite well I mean I yes you know word in a word yes although I very much loved the pepper and so while we know exactly what's going to happen here and then it did right so I can done without that unless it turned out that they were like demons and skin suits pretended it's just like breaking Jason's heart into the look that he gave was just heartbreaking in its own way right as Jason Jason be sad so we give them a lollipop in a balloon right now remember how much he loved his Mansa Ellen at Disney again this is just going to be his thing every time every time he goes to Disney is going to be romancing some girl for Allen kind of ridiculous so it's hard to to rest real emotion pathos out of it and again just I liked James in Amazon I thought that Joe gets kind of harsh on them I thought so too who pays you know I like that supposedly saying Illinois to be replaced that seemed like not genuine and you just knew she was going to walk in on it when they were talking about it so that kind of I think so the thought that they've done something else didn't it yeah I could see that because there's no reason to say that if that's settled for an entire week and worried I'm still worried but I'm sure they're going to pull it off but I thought as we were saying last week I just like them to have a little wind here and there on the podcast the good place podcast and how poignant that all was unlike yeah five believed it it would have been but it just seemed so sitcoms so I don't know the whole the whole like romantic triangle thing with Jason Jannine Tani has always seemed head on through the good place podcast this was Santa Claus isn't real Yes yes but but he right eleanor needs a big old shrimp machine in her off as come on let's give these guys some break right they need a little love so there was a little hint dropped like why would they do something so easy that we could discover so quickly as Linda being Muslim boy was sort of a deliberate plan in the other direction in both cases the bad place wanted it to fail so I guess it is sort of the same but a lot I also thought I was also pleasantly surprised that kate did so well with the the tango right or the Argenta I can't remember the Argentine right and there is no redeeming anything there you know eleanor was not a good human when she came it did have the good moment of realizing that in fact wanting do something did not mean you had to immediately do it says a revelation the sun broke over his head tawny and to sow discord but that I- certainly hope that that is not the case so but she had many many many flaws but she knew that she wasn't in the right place and she wanted to get better so that she could stay and so Anna Yeah but there was something in the way that they were describing it on the podcast yeah where they were talking about how he fantastic at what you do but yeah see this I think that may be part of the problem I'm feeling it again I'm confident they'll find a way to make it he could be in the good place and that they're trying to walk a line between making him just so over the top obnoxious Moan in her earlier storyline on earth any storyline with her now is going to be the heartbreaking getting together with Chidi stuff so it's like there's none uh-huh like just kinda worried and sad and maybe maybe it was all because of Blake Bortles yes that's true we will trust but I felt very good indeed about this episode of the West Wing which I quite enjoyed even though there was a fair amount of but I I think the left that line way way back I think that as well and he's just he's just cartoonish Lee Sitcom e off awful work but I don't relish hanging out with with either hume or gossip guy I just dread hanging out with them and while I liked is not the case right and I also I had to disagree with on the podcast they were talking about the character of Japan and sure enough so that he could script Joshua Malina saying things like I didn't do it I started hearing how many times will Bailey was describing himself as a loser and you know a terrible person and I thought did Whitford write the script so you can look at this guy and say well you know eleanor was bad also but this guy is unrepentantly bad and has no interest in changing his worldview at all so you know which is I guess the point that you know the Demons WanNa give them a big challenge as possible you know it's it's a setup now where before it what's his name brand or brandt or yeah the of not yes golfing guy and they talked about how you know he has to be believable that extent Blah Blah Blah I enjoyed the episode we saw was called internal display expanded it was almost entirely White House episode Josh did come into represent the EH you'll go it'll be good I know I'm sure I hope costumes were Nice Take Time yes campaign and hassle cj but in Bradley Whitford wrote it he did you know what I was so enjoying all the Will Bailey stuff and I went back and watched it again the humans that I'm going to be invested in I have to be invested in our original crew who are going to be having to have a really tough time of it so you know toby did it or it's staring at a dog or take an awkward feel I'm always like this so it was so funny let's go back you could do it at the very beginning I was feeling pretty pretty first of all I was watching real time so I was eight which is a new a new state of mind for him yes well I think Bradley Whitford induced state of mind for I'm sure will they've either gotta stop setting them up or he's gotta take some acting classes believe he's adorable spine he couldn't be like a cartoon or something and it's totally to vote on that one yeah here eating on his daughter he's no I I always worked best when I know less than everybody else in the room yeah and he just keeps trying to say the sweet thing to her about if if I'm gonNA jump off a cliff in you're gonna be thrown off a cliff let's hold hands on the way down really enjoyed him in all my gosh she keeps getting the terrible assignments and planned this wedding and oh by the way go find out if the president's son in lies probably yeah he's back hey it's nice oh they're trying to get together I wonder if that's going to work out but it's so sweet and we know because we've been spoiled by the first episode of the season that they get together would you rather not have that information when you were watching these scenes we'll skip an episode next week and talk about their podcast on this episode if necessary but there is also in this episode I mean overcoming just GonNa skip over all the Kazakhstan Blah Blah part and the you know PSA on behalf of the terribleness of Dr Four Dr for There is the beginning of what I think of as the Danny cannon s Sunni romantic bow part of this about this episode but since we had already committed to you our listeners that we were going to watch that episode we have just gone ahead and done so so we'll maybe talk next week there wasn't anything explicitly said and it's there's there's there's Ross dressing in the workplace especially for working welcome back and the only other thing I really have to say is quite the cleavage on cater there's a scene in the next to last episode which we will discuss when we get there they just have to go back and watch every now and then just to go oh my gosh I was wondering if that was also written of Mary McCormack's or they're just trying to you know boost the ratings yeah I don't really get it game in terms of dealing with dizzy politicos by a well Dan Geer hot any signed with all all the small town as possibly not necessarily be to be offended in that situation I would expect them to have war pupae if you even though she wasn't he'd somewhat route to the waitress I've gotta think a waitress in Washington DC is gonNA recognize her and know that I don't know come on folks like Kate as a character so much but no seriously cover those problematic character for the west wing hair and clothing people and I don't know whether we're supposed to think it's just a character trait of hers or like really all yeah eighteen hours at this yes they were so this was an awkward arbor it was hard for me to keep my offer neckline in her scenes because they are aimed right at the camera now aw I liked the seeds even though I didn't like C. J. just seemed so rude time yeah I mean just terribly pre for because he had some very nice dialogue for Danny here and it's not it's written by a woman which makes sense when you go to watch it but I just that scene where he can use to ski

bowed my head in the sink and let the tap batter my skull as hot and violent as the subs plumbing allowed it numbed my mind signed it held me over till the treatment kicked in and found its groove in

the bass a-list sinking its claws into my mic dela a familiar swoon before the tightness took a cold i braced one hand against the hull and felt the rumble and grown of the subs carapace adjusting to external pressure it was still descending still sinking along it's terrible trajectory toward atlas a place that shouldn't be ooh my vision blurred for a moment i could sense the enormity of the ocean the teaming scuttling expenses the crushing depths the distant dirge of the world's last whales singing the song of their extinction it was probably a hallucination sometimes they leak in the peaks

know i n pinned her from the wall pointed to the cot with the block black tip of my knife sit sit who are you impressed journalist your name tabitha vail i write for the new humanist the new york doesn't matter you you get aboard stowed away shipment of farm tab meals to big crate we hollowed out a space meet the top layer of packages who's we members members of the mariners guilt they liked my story pitch and you stumbled out just now what bathroom break neighborly the told me the cabin was empty there it's no passenger manifest this much was true i didn't think i'd have to get out of the crate but my leg cramped and well let's have it have have what your pitch the one the mariners liked the whole time the tip of my knife never wavered and i drilled into her with my eyes tight with the drug pupils gleaming beneath the schedule on my forehead she also had a clear view of the mark on my throat and half of the one on my sternum they make quite a statement the various symbols on my arms is just added a little extra flare old fashioned inc a dagger a skull fractured world tree i had them all from the old days before my current line of work bail mostly studied the floor cast a nervous glance or two with the other knives laid out beside her on the cot but when i asked about her work she finally looked me in the eye i wanna bring back a first hand account of atlas station why the biggest underwater habitat ever constructed and nobody knows anything about it all we've got her some schematics and a few photos of unassembled assembled modules hundreds of people live and work there it's a central hub for deep work and we know next to nothing about the place outside they feed us in press releases some i'm call that corporate espionage do you at thought i was asking the questions lands folk and re combined working side by side even and representatives of the deep knee reads the triton's themselves you've never been there either have you my first visit i smiled this one was sharp bolder than i judged i i flip the knife around in my palm and laid it beside the sink then grabbed a pair of disposable plastic cups from the medicine cabinet you wanna reveal the conditions there we all know what it's like on the surface but if the rumors are true allison is one of the few places where we combined workers have equal footing with liens folk shared culture even and what can we learn from a a place where we combined person is more in tune with their environment it won't play well with the heartland because they're so out of tune with theirs they need it more than anyone you see the conditions they enable she was right of course i've seen the re combined populations of the surface the endless sprawl all of the coastal communities where the rising tide washed the ruins of metropolis whereas swelling population teamed beneath the walls of inland governments submit those ruins the new california coast the florida's stump atlanta mumbai guangzhou joe goethenburg those were just the ones i'd seen with my own eyes but it was the same all over a new you people lived at the edges of the old a product of the bargain you decks made to save the world it was the price of the second the oil age i walked over to my bag and pulled out a half empty the bottle of whiskey i splashed a little into each cup an held one out to her you'll get caught you know that mhm maybe when she reached out to accept the drink i grabbed her forearm and twisted it just enough to make out the black tattoo on the inside of her wrist at ten character serial number starting with the letters are CEO your re combined yeah we both took a sip of our lukewarm liquor and you can look at these marks without flinching thing if she were pure blood triton she'd be in convulsions even some rica mind individuals can experience it's a mild episode at the site of elder sign they call it the watts effect the tendency for certain combinations of lines and angles to to induce seizures in the triton brain scientists claim it some kind of photosensitive up city the legacy of a species long adapted into an undersea world and its own mysterious architecture but then again i've heard supernatural explanations as well pick your poison i guess yeah we're all different you know part of the human condition birth is obscure and and men are like rivers whose origins are often unknown what's that from the mahabharata what happens now now i'm just a passenger they're not paying made a deal with stowaways as long as you don't get in my way you're not my problem i down the rest of my whiskey and tossed the cup in the sink i considered dragging her into the cargo hold anyway it would have simplified things things but we were still eighteen hours from our destination maybe i wanted the company the sound of someone else's voice i figured i'd probably hand her over once we arrived but for now what's your business on atlas station a missing persons case who goes

food as it should be junaid time it's the fifth thing this is a little extra bonus for things podcast episode where i answer questions and i've gotten from you after you listen to the podcast maybe listen something on the bobby bones show or maybe you're just curious about something for me so you never know when you're question is going to get red so i'm gonna start with the first question from tanya do you have any love you podcast and inspiring things that you share i have a question from you're interview with eddie amongst all it'd be amazing talk about fostering he mentioned he had changed his diet and the past year due to health issues related to inflammation i have rheumatoid arthritis and would love to know what eddie is doing specifically exactly i've seen lots of information about the mediterranean diet being a good lifestyle for rheumatoid but wanna know if you could share what he was doing things were altered positivity and inspiration tanya so tanya i reached out to eddie to confirm what he shared on the podcast cast in he said he was following be auto immune proto call it's the h i p diet and it's designed to help reduce inflammation in the body and relieve symptoms of auto immune disorders so i don't know if that helps but it's i saw i i personally haven't ever followed it but i when i was looking it up for you after he told me i sold it

significant changes it could even take people off certain medications that they're on now i am one that i have a balance between you know a more holistic approach an eight doctor approach the eastern and western i'm a fan of both but i do know that food can affect are body in crazy ways and also he'll are body so definitely check it out see see if it's something that could work for you tanya an speaking of eddie he was on talking about becoming a foster parent in y'all just loved the episode and it's one of my favorites to quite honestly in were doing like a replay episode on the bobby bones show and that's one that i chose to feature i don't know if it has aired yet but the bobby bones show has eight podcast replay channel and they're starting to sprinkle in some like you know teasers her podcast that we have like eddie has a podcast with ray and lunchbox called the sore losers would you could check out and then bobby bones has a podcast called the bobby cast and then i have four things west amy brown and then my friend kelly has velvets edge and my friend and caroline has get real which is an awesome podcast they're all great things at checkout but they're just putting in different different teasers and i chose to feature my eddie interview an then i did another one with my husband where we talk about love an anyway but backed eddie being one of my favorite ones about foster care there were so many of you that responded to that and it was just really neat to see how it touched your encouraged year maybe planted a seed fur maybe you to look into being a foster parent and we had something super cool eddie he like went to walmart in he got accused of stealing on formula baby formula because he was gifted some baby formula but it was the wrong kind first foster baby so he returned it end the woman there is like did you buy this spur wheeler did you steal it 'cause he doesn't have a receipt and he's like no it and steal it but y'all stealing formula is such a thing it's like a really big deal in my friend michelle who used to work for this guy that's not like a big wig at walmart i guess word got back to walmart that eddie had shared that story on the air that he got his accused of stealing walmart was like oh no that's that's horrible like we need to make that up to him and my friend michelle reached out to me and said that her friend that works at walmart said he really wanted to make right and they wanted to you know make a donation of foster care on behalf of eddie and the give his family a gift card in walmart followed through they straight up did that that representative called into the show an none of this is like planned or anything it's just it's crazy how it worked out and they made a donation ten thousand dollars to the foster care five oh one c three of editor's choice and then they gave eddie's family a thousand dollar gift card but my friend michelle is also saying that her friend that works for walmart definitely confirmed that that stealing baby formula is a thing and it is something they have to watch out for so the person working at walmart you know it's just doing their job but unfortunately accused of stealing and like why do i look like a thief oh which speaking of of getting a pedicure an i saw this woman next had a house arrest ankle bracelet on and it was in the pedicure water so i guess those things are waterproof which makes sense they have to be because i guess if you're on house arrest you would have to be able to take a shower or bath but but i was just sitting next round the whole time i was very curious like i wonder why she has to wear that ankle bracelet like what did she do 'cause she did not look like a criminal i dunno maybe she still some baby formula at some point and now she's she's out on house arrest but she's able to leave her house to go get a pedicure don't know but anyway thank you tanya for the email about eddie in if you do tryout vip diet let us know how it works for you next question is from kinsley hey any i was wondering if you could please share you're at home infrared sauna i know you said the when you bought is an investment but i can't find anywhere in my area that offers it so kinsley yes definitely something that was a treat those kind of is a gift from my husband infer anniversary ever sri but i had been asking for it for a while but honestly my husband and i both use it in there is a sweat house here in nashville and when you add up what we would spend if we were members there this is definitely yeah a good purchase for us an i got it from sun lighting if you go to sun lighting dot com you can see all the different saunas if they have to offer an sometimes they have a sale i know that my husband got mine when they were doing some promotional sales so you could you know keep your eye on you know whatever sauna you think you might get in then wait for it to go on sale like sign up for an email blast something and maybe you'll get you'll get a discount or something but mine is the two one you get into it's not like the big stand up when you get it and it's like this little to crawl in and pull it over my body and then there's little towel and it gets so hot and i come out of that thing like totally sweating like crazy but also feeling amazing next question is from valerie he would love to know what kind of dry shampoo used and how to make you're hairdo extend a few days after shampooing so this is a question i get so much that i've addressed it in the four things podcast i've addressed it here in the fifth thing but i'm like okay maybe people are missing it so i'm gonna go ahead addressing here real quick 'em dry bar has an amazing dry shampoo that i like i also like a brand called rock star at the black hand with the green lead they make a travel sized just great all of these brands do i love not you're mothers haircare dry shampoo that when you confined it like walgreens or ebay also has a good one that's how you spell that as o r i v e or ebay a there's there's a lot that are out there but i would say if i had to come up with a list those would be at the top of my list and i kind of rotate depending on what where i buy what and what i have in my cabinet and then a chip for dry shampooing is to spray it on your hair before you go to bed and then when you wake up in the morning brush it out so that'll help like soak up the oils while you sleep so valerie i hope that helps you know and now a message from pinero judging from you're fine joyce in podcasts we already know that you've great taste the kind of tastes it favors maybe a slow smoked chicken scrambled egg and olive kado breakfast wrap from in mira perhaps even the kind of taste that would parrot with one of their as brand new poll bruce order both for rapid pickup now now in you could finish breakfast before you finish this podcast breakfast the staff not fast food from an era food as it should be the next question is from caitlin lynn hey amy love listening to the bobby bones show as well as you're podcast you talked about you're families alabama mac and cheese yo recipe and how we can find it on you and your sisters old blog one clip tree but that website is not available will anymore so i can't find a recipe i was wondering if you could tell us what it is okay caitlin you're so true my sister and i totally did not realize that one country dot com had expired but we got it back up and running so we're just together over the fourth of july and we made it a priority rogue we gotta figure this out so if it's still working you should be able to find it at one plum tree dot com and just search for alabama mac and cheese yo if for whatever reason and there's a legend that is not working i made it a as part of my highlights page on instagram stephen just go to at radio amy look at the highlights and i've got the recipe up there for alabama mac and cheese yo because it's are families recipe and it is so legit like again i'm not big on having dairy but this this iron skillet full of goodness goodness is full of all the dairy and it's amazing in that the timer i just don't care because it tastes so good an it's amazing so yeah there's two confined it in fingers crossed one plump tree dot com is working now and then if not go to my highlights page next question is from jennifer an she's asking about my homemade deodorant she said that she feels good using it and actually work so much better for her the traditional store bought deodorant but there is a problem when travelling it melts because it's so hot so what do you do what you're deodorant to keep it from melting she said she said she even tried putting it in a cooler but it's not easy to go everywhere with the cooler which jennifer i totally get that i mean it's it's hard the struggles real because one of the main ingredients it's coconut oil and what happens coconut oil when it's in any sort of heat it melts so i would just put mine in in a really tight container in once i would get to where i was going i would either throw it in a little refrigerator for a little bit or at least get it at room temperature and just give it a good stir in stir at start start stir it and then i just put it on kind of really liquidity and messy and i noticed it's gross but i really don't have any other solution for you other than yeah caring around the cooler which i get is not ideal on and maybe for traveling you go ahead and take like a store bought bar brand that is gonna stay more intact or the milk and honey one that i loved it is very similar to my homemade one i order it on amazon it's milk and honey and vanilla and coconut flavored flavored so yummy but it's been harder and harder for me to find be quite honest and i feel like when i am ordering it's getting more expensive 'cause i think maybe they're discontinuing it or something but a that one doesn't melt so i tend to use that one for sure if i haven't made a fresh batch it home the milk and honey one for whatever reason whatever they put in there it doesn't melt but i tell you it's pretty much the same ingredients so yeah you just gotta roll with jennifer i know it's not ideal but sometimes in the summer months you just gotta come up up with an alternative her carry a different kind of deodorant if you don't wanna you don't wanna walk around with a cooler now this next question is from ashley and i've been getting this a lot so i'm assuming that maybe some of you have come to nashville or you're planning come to nashville i mean it is a top tourist destination i mean nashville is full of tourists all the time i'm pretty sure it's like the top bachelorette party destination even beats out like vegas in austin texas and other cool places places that people go and let me tell you i see families here all the time visiting i see bribes to be walking around with their tr in their matching shirts and like all the things there's just a lot to do here so i thought i would go over especially since i get this question a lot of things to do in nashville and that's gonna be the last thing that i addressed so if you're not planning on coming in nashville and this doesn't interest you what you could go ahead and peace out right now if you want to but hopefully all listen to the cool things and then you'll come visit this really cool city because obviously sleep there's a lot to do this question specifically from ashley and she says hey mia love the podcast a spa and all the things i'm planning eight family friendly trip to nashville at the end of the summer and would love some tips i enjoy the stories you share about the things that you're sweet family for find so do around town my daughter is ten and we are huge country fans and we wanna see all the fun spots in the hidden gems love your views on things and appreciate a family friendly radio show and podcast so ashley here you got some things to do in nashville you got the country music hall of fame you have the opry end the reimann those are all classics go to fury's and if you catch the show at the operator riding and that would be awesome in the country music hall of famous just call detour you can check out a writer's round and those we he found various places that specifically the boop blooberg cafes which is usually hard to get into there's always a line but maybe you can figure out a way to make it work there's also the listening room cathay which is easier to get in there and see one or douglas corner fe all venues usually have something in their lineups each night also just found out about the cumberland caverns that's something that we are definitely gonna do it's about an hour and a half away and you could tour underground cave you couldn't even watch a concert three hundred and thirty three feet below the ground in their own cave concert hall which sounds amazing there's the frist art museum which offers a great kid section where parents and kids learning create different styles styles of art my kids personally love it up there there's also cheek would botanical gardens which is an awesome place to check out if it's not too hot it's fun to walk through all the different seasonal exhibits and gardens thursay adventures science center there's hiking around radnor lake you got the national farmers markets those are always fun to hit up the national zoo my kids personally love the kangaroos and then popular places to eat and maybe grab a treat i guess before you get the food i should say that you're daughter's ten so can't go into the bars on broadway but it would be cool fertile walk up and down broadway and just like see all the different people playing music and just people watch if you're into that so i recommend doing that as well on some good places to eat definitely check out mon nells in germantown it's family style food where you could choose to be sat with strangers so it's a great way to make friends you get a traditional southern cook dinner there's also a fun place called pined would social where you can bowl an eat like it's a really swanky bowling alley what's really amazing food on my kids personally love five points pizza pizza and then for burgers they love burger up definitely get the truffle fries if you go there a five daughters bakery is a must for most visitors that's where you can get donuts and they have what we now know to be crow nuts kind of like the chris not donut situation that's really good it's in a popular location twelve south there's one in east nashville 'em but if you want more things to walk around and do you can check out the twelve south location very walkable neighborhood end although it didn't originate from nashville you definitely checkout jenny's splendid ice cream there's so many fun flavors to choose from and it's summertime and it's so hot and they literally let you sample like every single kind of ice cream when my kids go in there and like okay kids please limit yourself to three samples this time it's embarrassing and that's also and twelve south there's also one in east nashville but again twelve south is that walkable neighborhood and then while you're in twelve south you should definitely check out frothy monkey because it's a really cute coffee shop and you never know if you might see you know someone they're writing their next big country song while you're just hanging out at frosty monkey so there you go 'em that is my last question for the day and if y'all ever visit nashville you feel free to email if you've got any questions and the other places that you wanna chat don't know hey it's amy brown end there's this thing called incidental sun exposure basically it's all the time you're hit with sunrays without trying to be you know like when you're walking near car or you're sitting by window that kind of thing and every week we get about eighteen hours of it all that incidental sun exposure equals a day at the beach how crazy is that you know for me personally personally i'm just looking for an spf that doesn't feel heavy and greasy i want an spf that i wear underneath my makeup in still looks amazing i don't want the boy lee look or the oily feeling you know the one i'm talking about the thankfully i found a labor

Airports pro have been designed to be water resistant and always cancellation adaptive. Even they've got to microphones on each pod one listening to the outside world and the other listening to what's bouncing around in your own ear my right they fit great in both for a lot of people and neither for some until now you've had no options except for power beats pro which is a lot of the same out noise cancellation for the world is just too loud and colors for would I want to be loud air pods pro are the answer to most if not all while you're flying you can switch to transparency mode that uses the vent system to let in enough noise for you to listen and talk if and when you have to but oh you're playing the book the PODCAST The music if you do want to hear the world around you for example to avoid cars while you're running or to ask for another tasty beverage is vector airports are the best selling headphones in the world and based on all the memes alone I have zero reason to doubt them they're also far from perfect EP x four certified you can't use them in water and they probably won't survive dunking like a donut but they should be fine with sweat and rain the standard air pods come in good for your specific ear apple says they have a custom high dynamic range amplifier inside that doesn't just provide clear sound and power for both of which use similar tech have gotten far more praise I'm going to have to listen for a while to see how these really sound

of talking that's compared to up to five hours listening time per pa for the Standard Air Pods it's an optional in charge and the power beats pro it's not even an option and you know I'll be testing the battery life and getting back to you about the only thing air pods oh don't sell for our colors despite rumors to the contrary always rumors you can get them in any color you want as long as what you want is white same as st out of computational audio that means they're measuring the the sound inside your ear and then adjusting it continuously to make it sound as good as possible for each

This fat phobia gets instilled right it's like oh it's good to be small I guess it's bad to be large absolutely And Yeah I think it just SORTA with my body I think I could tell you from about like six years old I knew that there was something better about being thin that people within got more praise the people who were did that sort of manifest in trying to change how you ate it all did you connect it with food or not really not so much when I was younger because I very much had the privilege of I could eat and it wouldn't really change my body and it never really clocked onto meet that food with an influence in that way I was quite active from a young age you but when I was about twelve years old I got very very ill so I was diagnosed with all sorts of Colitis and throughout that period because it took quite a long time he just wile but it wasn't until I was may be getting to my about teenagers that sort of as your body changes anyway I kind of started realizing the relationship between before I finally received diagnosis and then I went on some medication which kind of caused them quite drastic weight gain that was very notable when Love was ingrained in me that one of the defining characteristics of my identity was being this small us I took a lot of pride in being that way I finally started going back to school people suddenly like a wow you've gained a lot of weight and I could tell by the reactions that it wasn't a good thing and and maybe we can talk a little bit about the ulcerative colitis diagnosis and symptoms that you faced and stuff and I know that's incredibly painful so to have you get a diagnosis and throughout the time I was just gradually losing way and it was months of this not really being able to eat as I would normally like to food and my body and started trying to kind of harness that in order to control things do you think that was related to body changes in puberty at all or slightly indication that extensively was helping you feel better and then to have it have the side effects that people shamed you for probably adding more pain on top of an already paint the me was kind of the beginning of this kind of really fraught relationship with my body and food oh yeah that sounds so painful because also it sounds like you went through sure the illness was not fun but it sounds like the image you're projecting or the way that people were perceiving you kind of trump that in your mind the experience yeah definitely I mean that was one of the most fascinating things to me looking back on it now as a body emory Sacha and thinking about how full were lest envious of I do remember this one specific time when I went to the doctors shortly after kind of being medication for a while I was getting for anyone who doesn't know can you just explain what ulcerative colitis is short so all sorts of Colitis is basically a gastrointestinal disease and yeah I mean it's crazy to me now but especially like receiving compliments from adults when say I'd get a little bit L. sometimes because obviously bill Mrs in my mind as a twelve year old the worst thing in the world is not being sick it was being in a body that wasn't praised like it used to be being in a body that p the digestive tract colitis is just the low apart right and those alterations can cause a lot of symptoms right yeah so so a very loose the people I knew and they'd say oh you're looking great and I would just be like I feel terrible but thank you very much right like this illness that was making you feel so bad was actually short this doesn't happen when I'm on this medication is just to not eat very much became someone who just avoided food as much as possible Lee Garner new compliments it's so confusing yeah absolutely and it really kind of messed with my head I didn't know I think I lost okay you can possibly be gaining weight and I just started restricting I've very quickly distort while the only way I can mm-hmm and into sort of looking at the discrepancies diagnoses for people with such colitis spaced on the agenda and so many people especially women will but those kind of come out a lot at school and then I kind of put two together people clearly thought it was because of what I was eating because obviously the only causes ulcerations and inflammations throughout the lowest digestive tracts of as also Crohn's disease which is basically the same but throughout Hara like I was absolutely absolutely distraught that I was now average not underweight wow because that was such a part of your identity and such a thing that people raised you for absolutely yeah it sounds like I mean God yet twelve years old people are so I remember being twelve and image was so everything right it's era fight me to my absolute core to have even the tiniest thing to eat and I almost justified my behaviors in my head because bleeding in the stools as a lot of cramping and pains it's fascinating now just to kind of diverge a little bit Mind Oh yeah but I'm doing a lot of research at the stems from my own experience and I feel maybe not lucky but I would say I feel like I've learned so much from my own experiences and all of that noses I think it was about maybe nine months it took in total so yeah it was a lot of tasks and not really coming up with conclusions so a wellness editor for awhile and D- feel like your experience with uc kind of pushed you in that direction trying to figure out my mind I was thinking this is because of my colitis this isn't because I'm afraid of gaining weight this is because I just want to take care of my body because you know how Diet Culture tells you the stink so people are not getting the diagnosis they need because it's being mislabeled as pure yeah wow yeah so that must have been a long process then of trying to get it done spirit's misdiagnoses 'cause around the age that having all these body changes in this like Oh it's just period crumbs my remember that being part of my experience so much that's really interest a lot better and they weighed me while I was there and told me my way and they're like oh it's your about average well for your age and your high as a child and my reaction was what it felt like to actually feel good in your body to feel in control and safe and peace for a long time that was just lost the must've been so hard has kind of come to this incredible pursuit in what I do in body image research and just unpicking the different complexities around why we have such accomplished aged relationship with our bodies gas I'm curious to kind of go into like how you got into this career right how you how you started to I mean because I know you were into initially what started as kind of my writing online I wanted to write about wellness suddenly I was in this very glamorous very aesthetically suing this kind of health I'm finally that's the one thing it's encourage me to eat more but only of only in quantity God that is so such a profound example of how normalized disordered eating becomes diet culture and especially around chronic health conditions like this being thin is healthy and there will taking care of my body by making sure I stay thin so in my mind I didn't see an issue was just something that occur and all of this other stuff and I want to say that it was just from my house but I knew like deep down the absolutely yeah and I know now you you research on chronic health conditions to riot and talk about the sort of embodiment experience or disembodiment off the ideal as they liked to call it and singing the praises of how wellness was not restrictive it was a lifestyle it was bill can feel when they have a chronic health condition like that it sounds like this is a very clear example of that type of disembodiment absolutely I mean a so much of my research very much identify with the idea of like a stencil doing it for your health but secretly also having this weight loss goal like I was very much I also have a couple of pleasing environment everyone was supposedly glowing they're a very much embodying the thin ideal or the hell chronic illnesses that weren't diagnosed until after I started disordered eating to kind of try to manage them or manage the symptoms of what I didn't even know or chronic illnesses wellness and how to eat for your health definitely I mean I could say that I and definition of Diet Culture got me I was Brian Lara's you restrict food it results in weight loss just kind of how it goes in at least initially anyway and so in my mind I thought pat and just got into this kind of whack a mole of trying to cut out different foods and manage symptoms but always it was with this impetus yeah that makes so much sense especially when your body was doing things beyond our control sounds like with a chronic illness like that you can't really control leap university I fell into of the clean eating culture instagram was just kind of starting up burned ruled you sort of beautiful on that kind of inevitable's away off to some time you might have a relapse whenever I'd have a relapse I'd lose some weight and I'd be getting compliments for maybe like teaches on L. definitely in terms of like I wasn't actually eating a variety of foods I was just eating a very restricted diet I just thought it was for my health and that was kind of how I at the time and got really down the rabbit hole of quote unquote wellness although it was kind of like the very very early days it was more like Michael Pollen like Eric seeing in the back of your mind of like and also I'll be thin or I'll get thinner you know the Diet Culture messaging is so tied up with messaging about health and the heart of it for about a decade I would say I was experimenting with all these different kinds of diets and then I think when I got to about eighteen hours just about meeting it's you know I need to cut out these foods in order to manage my flare ups and I won't have a problem if I cut out these foods and I think it's so important to what you said about like this go with something that flares up periodically and is not easy to pinpoint I think it's it's so easy to get to a place of thinking like oh it's the food sir kind of like whole foods avoiding process quote unquote processed foods and all this stuff but it didn't really have the label of wellness or clean eating yet but it was like the pro version this is the inevitable outcome yes exactly like the picture of health for all of these different wellness plans is always thin like it's inevitably a one drink that you drink you know as you're part of your breakfast or whatever and then doing it again multiple times a day is just like ludicrous to someone someone thin is is held up it's like this is what your body will look like even if it's not overtly sadly that it's it's very much implied in the instagram images of people right the the grammar really interesting post about objectification body objectification and disembodiment through racism basically racial racial objectification in healthy help is always intrinsically tied to thinness so we naturally assumed that by being I say quote unquote unhealthy because it's not hell he pull on social media saying how they killed themselves of ex wives that because taping eating a clean diet in becoming out dairy and gluten and who is living on a more restricted budget yep absolutely and I'm curious to talk a little bit about the racial aspect of this too because you posted recently on penetrating that is health but it's really just the guys for privilege yes such a great point it's in because it is so rarefied right this wellness world and how that like alienates people from their bodies and I think that's kind of an important piece of that picture you know the false picture of health that wellness culture holds up to is that the very much you know the whole way of being infamy it sounded idyllic as a very impressionable young person who just wanted to kind of feel a sense of control in the body quote unquote wellness influencers the people who hold themselves up as exemplars of this wellness lifestyle they're always thin and oftentimes too often like you know of racial tinge to them like saying oh you look so exotic or just all is questioning about whereas from like so when I started again looking at he but by pursuing this ideal of health that clean eating or however it's being cost is we just assume that thin how that might have affected my relationship with my body and how that might in general effect people of different ethnicities it becomes very evident that because key thing there is the fact that health is just so tied up in thinness like we're just so it's so ingrained in us the being thin and it doesn't matter how thin thin is every week as I talk with interesting people from all walks of life about their relationships with food and their bodies and by the way on this podcast we bleep out diet culture stuff like wait and calorie I diet culture saturation and disordered eating behaviors and thoughts that it was health was kind of a convenient guys for that like it became of like and I'll I'll magically become thinner or stay thin or you know not gain weight because that was such a fear I had from just right this easy way to sorta deflect attention from the disordered and kind of fat phobic thoughts and to say no this is just about my health absolutely I mean I think privileged all the economic privileges that come with being thin the the greater ability to get opportunities that people in larger bodies and not afforded because of fat for white young able bodied says gender all the things right like the sort of mythical ideal of what body supposed to look like in Western culture minutes essentially just all the hallmarks of privilege because ball health is really feeding us it's not just being beauty it's feeding us the aspiration that comes with always better than being fact or having weight on your body and so it's understandable that even though we kind of have these thoughts that are will be is so inaccessible to the vast majority of people the idea of buying like bunches of Kale and blender izing them down into no it is often white or at least Eurocentric beauty ideals that are held up as the supposed picture of health the ad definitely so I mean I won't claim that I'm Anne expert on sort of the racial aspects of body image this is really just narrowed that I started investigating myself again informed by my own experience because vonts just very chaotic time in my life I would say and how did that change your relationship with food in your body once I realized that that was kind of it'd be a same goes for people with disabilities just don't have the same access to these opportunities to someone who is in enable body so I am mixed race and I never really probed it myself until I started thinking about all the experiences of objectification that I received in my life and the way that they always had this a lot of jokes going around it school Ike oh you just you know you've eaten so much shorter like inner stand jokes I don't need to go into nonsense enormous white anyone who is not white is an other and so we start internalizing this language we start kind of seeing ourselves as other and that naturally leads to spilling alien nation in our own bodies and we can't actually tune into those sensations ECON- for instance intuitive eat so my first I very quickly out of Uni I got an internship with a UK women's spent this magazine that shall not be named and very much dove in straight into this culture measuring what they were eating they were kind of trying all these juice cleanses and initially it certainly fed this kind of legitimize what career probably to engage in sort of other distancing behaviors from your body like you mentioned a research study that I hadn't seen that sounds really which into that because yeah eating disorders were so like for decades have been construed as this privileged white woman's disease instead of acknowledging all the ways they show up in the world that can look different than how they might show up in a privileged white woman who goes to a treatment center and a thin white woman at that anyone who struggles and also such catnip for anyone who struggles I think right it's so normal to be attracted to that field or to related health and wellness fields when you're struggling usually right it's like all forms of body privilege yeah this is so interesting this research and I want to hear more about your own trajectory of how you aggressions which might not seem in and of themselves to be quote unquote a big deal but you're fielding these things all the time right the question of like what are you interesting that like people who experienced racial experience racial is uttering a racial objectification actually have higher rates of disordered eating which and obviously that's grainy destructive when you kind of think about yourself in that way all the time yeah completely and it makes it out of eating disorder research as it does focus on a lot of white privilege women unfortunately the research just isn't that kind of really delve into more I mean I how you got into like the wellness editing world which I know I was a part of to the health health journals field and that is just such a minefield you're being called exotic and all that is really uttering you instead of saying just like let's talk about you as a person right not like focusing was a culture of disordered eating I have no on the words for it like I was surrounded in this office by women who constantly dieting women who would constantly with your own stuff because it it feels like oh if I start researching this and become really knowledgeable about this at all unlock the secrets all cracked the code of how to the thin and healthy and have my all my problems go away yeah so I guess going back to how I got into wellness editing them I graduated doing as healthy because when you're working in an industry that supposedly is supposed to be disseminating health information and you see this kind of behavior you think makes a Lotta sense given that disembodiment that you talked about it does and I wish I could say that I had more research into this but you know how it is with your body and how it looks yeah and it's so routine that it becomes a point where you just expect to end it does just become your identity the otherness is used from Uni with a degree in linguistics and I was very much like I wanNA walk in house I want to help people learn how to eat really healthy dedicated to pursuing this picture of health so that I could become essentially not just succeed in my pursuit of health but succeed in my career to get to the place where I saw these awesome really thrives on freebies right like we've got all these free access to restaurants classes definitely it's a lot of sure why this might be in a car and something I'm definitely probing myself kind of hope to do more so in the future that's great I mean I feel like we need so much more research this is just ludicrous from a perspective right and like I'm sure 'cause knowing how I don't know if it's different in the UK but in the US exceeding in that realm because of really restrictive and disordered behaviors in their own lives and oftentimes don't see anything wrong with that you know I mean I for as those things are so rarefied and they're so out of reach of the typical person right like spending thirty dollars or whatever on a fitness one class consider the source here you have to consider that the people who are attracted to an end up rising up in the field of health and nutrition media it's not just about the health it's everything that comes with that Oh my God totally like yeah the wellness treatments and the boutique fitness at such a great point because my own early journalism career I was binging constantly at night you know I would eat restrictively quote unquote healthy foods during the day and eat the way that I thought I was so missing because the people who are running the media or so in it themselves that's something that try to point out to people whenever I can is like you really have to a studio is and wellness treatments and that was a very aspirational lifestyle that was kind of the way while Mrs painted wellness media are oftentimes the most disordered are oftentimes people who really bought into diet cultures version of health nutrition and seemingly or quote unquote the PR is friends with WHO's Edita totally Ya yes so the the fitness classes that the PR person is the woman where they were writing these articles and they were living these incredibly I would say glamorous lives they were going to all of these very high end boutique sponsors a lot of the time it's very much that's not a lot of genuine critiques of what you read in certainly in wellness journalism it's very much must be what health looks like and so that completely just encouraged me I would say I was very much just stopped and I was very much just maybe didn't know what it was talking about and I was very lucky at that time to meet some really great evidence based nutritionists such as Pixie Tana and sure as an Undergrad which is great preparation for writing and journalism not great preparation for reading health studies critically and it sounds like maybe similar was true for you yeah I think that was I'm I'm very lucky that around that time I think there was sort of the almost kind of exposure of cleanly friends with the editor of get named get recommended and yeah there's not really any digging into because I mean I think that's that's the thing right the the critical I is Laura Thomas who I know you've had on the Paul cost who the very much kind of there were very understanding I very much appreciated as a wellness right foam very initially in my kind of wellness correct kind of started realizing that something wasn't right but I didn't I don't think I realize the desperately wrong with me that I couldn't just eat this way that I was supposed to be eating never occurred to me that the way that I was telling everybody else how to eat was was crazy you too right linguistics is great preparation for career in any form of communications but not in how to actually understand and read critically about what you're reporting yeah absolutely and I guess that comes down to the crux of when you don't have people who have actually been educated in an area if they don't know what they're writing about an just almost taking whatever they read passing on and it becomes suspicious cycle of just diet culture just getting reproduced over and over again it's hard to break me to fix my relationship with food but that was really just the beginning he had it's so interesting how just becomes this like onion the never ending onion rating the binges you know and so I think it's just you really just never know what's going on behind the scenes for some of these people in positions of power in the health and wellness field host eat based on the articles I was writing the research I was doing and then end up binging on the quote unquote forbidden things and you know think that it was my fault and there's something a coming at me and saying okay this is everything that's wrong we need to do something about actually getting proper experts in so I ah yeah and I think that's such a great point two of like they're not really educated in science right like I went into my journalism career having majored in rhetoric and French literate A. B. That person but hello everyone just gonNa handle of the health you know solve that savior complex that you have when you think you've mastered food and you want to share it with the world extent of the disorder that was within the industry until I finally stepped away from it and we're you still struggling with your disorder at that time too yeah so surrounded with was so elitist so exclusionary had no interest in helping people actually be healthy I thought this is just despicable in medical humanities which was kind of just wanted to figure out a way to incorporate my knowledge linguistics because language is something I've always been so passionate it was definitely ongoing because like I say you don't realize how ingrained diet culture is until you finally start picking it and it's been ongoing Tang at the same time where there was sort of stuff going on with Bill Gates in Australia and people kind of caught onto the fact that wellness absolutely say it really was of me deciding to leave wellness was just the first step in my in my eyes time that this is the final thing it's been also all kinds of experiences like just different chronic illnesses and just trying to understand how complicated our relationship with our bodies how and I really wanted to kind of get the core how culture instills all these ideas three language so I went back to get this masters and cross talk talking back and forth between the mind and the body that connection is not several the way that Western culture makes it out to be it sounds like you just reached her boiling point and yeah had to get out of there yes oh pretty much mmediately after I went back to study for a moss's of Science Ostrov with wellness where they were all full I'm going to just put it was awful it was so also so much information that by this time consider what words and what ideas were picking up very Leon and so if you think about sort of in the context of diet culture when you start learning about was so unhappy in this job the ended up leaving after three months it was very fast and probably the best thing I've ever done pulling back more and more layers of uncovering things that is a great analogy you just never know what you don't know until you start date it was like how did we get here what's the rhetoric what's the language that is being used to shape these ideas and ideals about health and beauty that Ben Language is kind of the idea that was not just words but they kind of form the underscoring our entire understanding of ourselves manipulate and control but the reality is that it's so interconnected and our body has such a huge influence on our mind as well yeah there's there's so much bodies of our identities like so much of the way that we express ourselves and so much of the way that we learn about the world is through language and so it's really important that we the body and we have the meaning of health and from that just really took to body image research and looking at particularly people with eating disorders just storing on my own news no evidence base so much demonization of process spirit and I could see how this was also just being incredibly discriminatory like in my mind the walk that serve to oppress us and keep us locked in the pursuit of something really unattainable so can you talk a little bit about what your work on language has not necessarily a place of power that's really interesting it's sort of wanting to put women back in their quote unquote natural place which is of course culturally constructed Jeez that operate within language it reveals so much yeah completely right that that sort of religious language or the the idea of just I feel like saying all natural or saying processed those have connotations moral connotations they carry to even though they're not as overt and obvious as like guilty pleasure or sinful or clean and you know it's a little harder to make that connection obvious to people getting it right yeah and so how did the the body image research come into your career then so I left wellness I had a very terrible experience with is it you'll just reproducing these kind of idea that women are less than right and that their role is in the kitchen yeah it's really interesting that you talk about language and the importance of language in the construction of health and diet culture because that's something I'm super fascinated with two dotted learning a lot more about sort of the way that we have constructed the body the way the all the different symbolism that come into it when we have this meaning food from very early on you kind of learn this idea that there are good foods and bad foods and they might be described in different ways that could be clean or dirty which is black women and lat next women so there's many many things to be done but I think as it goes this is probably the one of the times when we've had the most free how it's been so overlooked we have this sort of mind body to me like the mind command body and the body's just this tool that we have to the imperfect and lots of work still to do on that front as evidenced by like the metoo movement and the pay gap which especially disproportionately affects it was like the whole all natural and this kind of pursuit of purity and so it's fascinating looking all the underscoring ideology obviously the clean eating example but we have so many ways of just being like naughty or guilt tea or does so the the convert the less religious terminology Dan or in the home and not going out in the world and doing things that have nothing to do with food preparation or keeping themselves looking good I mean totally because that's all die culture really want on to this kind of idea the wealth typically for woman died culture isn't well known for obviously trying to control women's bodies but this idea that you of course yeah and then of course when you have these of natural food imperatives suddenly they are commanding exactly this woman that commanding that strictures of Diet culture just get ever tighter and now the way to be a quote unquote good woman and the sort of aspirational wealthy example of a woman is insidious that it's like this elective oppression now among women will people will choose to do that because they think that being empowering they think by commanding covered and wet why you think it's so important to be talking about the role of language in this in the first place show so I guess where I typically sought when I start talking about in western culture because of the Internet because of the regulations that have been put in place for workplace equality and you know it's certainly very whereas old I meant to be set to allies and through kind of this all natural language though it's very very subtle is reproducing these ideas that women have a place and it's acidy of marriage is not what it used to be so you know I think it's very much it's no coincidence that at this time in women's history that the to like work outside the home and do our own thing and make our own destiny career wise and even relationship wise you know the doing all this stuff that you know it's like where's where's your time to actually work this is clearly like an example of a stay at home mom that is being held up as the woman are kind of not truly creationist in a specific weights they're meant to be perhaps quite domestic all the meant to be mothers and care make your preparing all your baby food from scratch and your kids meals prepping everything all day long going the farmer's market and doing yoga classes emme of health and wellbeing and like not knocking stay at home moms because that's great if you WanNa make that choice and if you love doing it then more power to you but like it's really not family and the idea of like self actualization the pinnacle of self actualization is this picture of quote unquote wellness when it really is so her grade and it's putting people back in this position that women were relegated to for centuries before I think it's kind of during on that that notion of self surveillance when you're talking about diet culture yeah definitely and tons of the the all natural on it's really really interesting because if you start looking at the roots of natural a lot of it constant audion this way and by morning themselves to achieve this ideal they are somehow the empowered when actually they're perhaps more confined than they have let now diet culture com- e- blamed for oppressing women it can't be blamed for tatting woman that they have to be thin in order to be good a beam it really is this elective oppression in this prison of because it's also yeah it's being sold as this isn't about health are this is not is an end that's so interesting too because you know this is a time when women have arguably the most freedom that they've ever had women assist just to make sure that women are as oppressed as possible freight yeah the Naomi Wolf thing of like diet culture is the most potent political sedative there is really all uconn eat convenience that gives you time you have to prep everything from scratch you have to spend a lot of money on making yourself look good and suddenly there you know sort of became the like central mode of feminism in like the third wave so now it's like well it's your choice in it's empowering and preying on the issues that people have with our culture in general that are so much larger like how exhausted everybody is right in come in the food environment and so it's this perfect storm of like we have these needs that aren't being met by our society and the culture of the passing that kind of is so domestically-oriented that that is now the pinnacle of health but it's the way that diet culture is kind of being so confusing to make your self confidence choosing a better life feel south when inevitably goes shaped and women end up with this disorder relationship with food quality keeps people like running on this hamster wheel and racial inequality and gender inequality key people oppressed and we know that oppression out dieting in about the diets of decades pass which are so passe. We don't do this anymore this is just about wellness and like taking the best care possible of your body Eddie Dot Com chief to blame that is such a great point and yet because diet culture can really hide behind this language of choice feminism which why is mainly because we don't know what it's like to just be peaceful in our bodies yeah because there's such attack from the outside in the form of micro because women are electrically choosing to do that because things are so framed now as by during this is a good choice you're empowering yourself is stressful to the body and actually is really strongly associated with and likely causes many of the health conditions that tend to get blamed on food now on like ainable for the vast majority of people definitely and I think he really just hit hit on the head that tons of this culture of the being the stay at home mom will just oppression in many systems of oppression that intersect in many people's lives that people are struggling against and the solution diet culture offers is like fix is your food fix your food environment and then everything will be okay so I can see why people get so sucked into it because I mean the problem is really someone has of this ideology of personal responsibility instead of seeing it as something that so many people have in that maybe this is bigger than all of us maybe this is actually disordered eating then diet culture comes in with its prescription to change all your food instead of giving you the sort of awareness that me relationship between body image and in people with sort of non-visible disabilities because obviously you get this reaction where your internal has the magic bullet to address all those things I mean it's far easier to sell as well like you can't really start selling to people political help people feel less alone in their struggles because so many of us I think suffer and silence with mental and physical health issues that we blame ourselves for is going on in someone's life to create the conditions for chronic illness and oftentimes you know as it was for me and many people that I've worked with the trigger for the chronic illness in the first place was really fascinating that is really interesting it's yeah the sort of neo-liberal idea of putting all the responsibility on the individual instead of looking at other way for people to to distract people from what's really going on and I see this too much in the rhetoric around chronic illness to where whatever discourse around chronic illness and what you've seen in that regard Shuo yeah so a lot of my research initially when I did my undergraduate I was very much interested in the are factors and cultural conditions yeah and of course by doing that you kind of excused so of systems from actually taking any responsibility you make it something going on in our cultural systems and systems of oppression of course and this is why I think the language is so important because once he started discourse around this once you start actually speaking discrepancy the kind of language that comes around is if you're not trying hard enough you're not taking responsibility then you kind of get ill it's maybe the way that you've been conditioned to eat in US disordered way is actually what's really at the root of the problem curious to hear more about your your research with ideas get transmitted through words right through language and so being able to change that discourse which is super hard as diet culture get sneaky language in order to manipulate us so obviously we're seeing it now in tons of diet culture co-opting the language of body positivity in size acceptance but not really because Tiv- right exactly and it so you're so right that language really is the basis of our ideas it's you know no matter what kind of a learner you are I think most Erin sneakier and we have to be more and more vigilant right but I think it's such an important project to try to really tease out the language that is created wellness of course and I think that's such a thing where it's like all these people who are trying to escape diet culture suddenly turning into this new trend you do look like your body could achieve anything or US essentially what diet culture wants you to believe but on the inside you're not feeling that so when you have this kind of because the onus is not on everyone it's just on the individual he suffering yeah and that's so painful for the individual heart of why started this podcast was too now and saying that these are the things that affect us this is how dire culture affects all of us how health is in effect so all of us then you can start actually changing than that I'm starting to learn about and maybe I'm clicking on hashtags and trying to learn more about what's been like written and said about these things and then to stumble into that I think the people don't actually have to care whether that is assistant to support people with disabilities that aren't have to care if there is enough resources for people with mental illnesses would've expecting you to be extremely stat toughest kind of relationship with exercise way you compulsively move all the time but on the outside because it changes the status quo and that means that certain systems are not powerful they can't dictate suppressions anymore so it's far easier to just promise people but food when people don't have a huge amount of knowledge about the movement in the first place they might be like Oh is this a part of the movement that I just missed is this like is it really about and I can see why you know people who are newer to this movement get so confused by because it has the trappings of okay this is like the movement amy systems of oppression of course unfortunately I think diet culture is kind of got the one on most of us are knows its power it knows how it can manipulate weight-loss secretly and I know people end up feeling so upset by that so triggered by that yeah do you have any ideas of like how people can sort of tease apart and recognized diet culture though in those sneaky forms I think the most telling thing is really when you have these dichotomy when trying to justify this kind of discrepancy between food it implicitly destabilizes the kind of neutral approach that you want to be taking when you're having this the bill and end all of all your problems yes I know completely and in doing that upholds those systems of oppression right it's like just a really convenient south doesn't really correspond to what people see on the outside so from the outside you might appear as healthy you might not embody say the healthy idea what people on neutral view of Food Syria always the dichotomies I think really stand out I think honestly when ever there's excessive talk of like right learn like anti Diet Anti Culture were against Dia Culture but then also you can have like sustainable weight and fat loss quote unquote and it's just like like that also has moral that's giving food this moral value when you might not even recognize that you're doing that yeah and I think also way that you're calculating out those things and being sort of like Oh am I allowed to have carbs again today or you know at this meal when I had it at the last meal or do I need more protein campaigning the all you can stop dieting and be healthy you can eat intuitively and be healthy I find this conflation quite uncomfortable do one of my loss things that I always tell people kind of question the privileging of healthy because of course not everyone can be healthy healthy is something that comes from having this is nutritious food and this is not because nutrition does uphold this place of high moral stature and people know this and say kind of sometimes only feel good and yourself if you're losing weight Bray weight loss is still very much a part of it and central to it but it hides under this discourse of take my mind has like a record scratch whenever I see something like that I can really feel it in my body usually where I'm just like Oh mies of food so whether it's good or bad food or if it's just saying these unhealthy foods these are not even even sometimes I kind of question the whole hobbs or protein or just different nutrients because it's such a telling thing where people who have this excessive knowledge of nutrition tend to be ones not realizing that it's just repackaged in the new film yeah and I'm curious if you have any tips or ways that people can try to identify that single bodies as equal yes and healthy is such a subjective term right at so culturally constructed and what does that even mean you know for someone because of course it's not necessarily the case the intention is that you find a peaceful relationship with food where the kind of Tom Oil of disordered eating food are also the ones the more likely to be over analyzing what they eat to be kind of mentally calculating things and it's not necessarily just because I do I I see so many people who are confused to come to me and say what do you think of this you know just recently in the US we had I don't know if you saw this but there is this diet talking to you let's such a great point it is so because it again it's that moral hierarchy right where like carbs are seen as bad and protein seen as goods the kind of philosophy that holds held up as the supreme moral value and excludes people based on their perceived lack of lack of health the thing that's a resource that's available to whatever extent we want to invest in it but not something that is like a hierarchy to judge ourselves by Mike for us with chronic illnesses it's like I'm never going to be disease free but you know the health can take many different forms and we can construe it as this is about wellness but you still try to lose way and this idea that I have that I'm working on my research which is the the non diet diet paradox I know I know it's like a core outrage whenever I read on especially from someone who is like a Dietitian nutritionist he claims to be non die an ruining your life but healthy you know it's kind of idea where people confuse health every size for healthier every size of course you want to lose weight or of course you're going to be thin in order to be healthy and healthy is the supreme value that you could hold and if you're not quote unquote healthy then calorie counting but kind of just thinking oh did I eat caused this morning did I have enough protein here and that and it's only little thoughts that you don't realize dot culture something is dreadfully wrong with you and like a moral level yeah exactly it's just another system of oppression another way of judging certain people and privileging a certain type body whether it's thin whether it's healthy it's just putting on a pedestal a making a goal instead of in who calls herself an anti Diet Dietitian but his promoting weight loss and saying that you can be anti diet culture and let using all this language that like I in my community use guys the other fat-phobic roots of Diet Culture is health ism and it's and of course weight is tied up with perceived health in this healthiest views way inclusive will bodies are good bodies and then next thing less saying is an his how you can lose weight I know it's just infuriating and we'll have these health conditions or painted as health conditions than is that really something to be pathologist or is it just part of being human to have our bodies really explored as the idea that quote unquote wellness you know we were not just saying like it's okay to be healthy or it's okay to be larger bodies as long as you're healthy that's actually just not the same but people misunderstand and I think that's the hallmark of sort of non well diet call to disguising itself is known diet by devalue anyone who has a disability or perceived disability yeah such a such a interesting rabbit hole to go down this idea like I know a whole range of other socio economic privileges as well the we don't most people on just it's just not within their control and so when you see people a health but to kind of take health is an objective value is just incredibly misleading right and and yet it's like if so many people waiting to get the message that body size doesn't equal health and like very imperfectly getting that message and a lot of cases but I think less explored less D S. and how it's constructed and I love that you're doing this work because I think there's too few people out there focusing on intersections of like wellness culture and Diet culture our two binary to say healthy versus unhealthy yeah and of course don't health status should not affect your moral status like people should not be judged based on hugely inspired by what you do right from before I even when did my mosques as I was listening to your podcast and just nodding along all your incredible guests and just as less valuable and less worthy than others yeah and it's stigmatizing yes and all of us really have some type of health currently just unpicking kind of all these tunnel is D- biases I had around food sort of thinking about if I was afraid of something well why am I is it pitches the side day or obviously the food restriction is still promoted but through a non diet discourse where it's not about weight loss about health it's about feeling good in yourself but of course you adopt disordered eating patterns and of course that's not say everyone does but it is a trend where we can see people you have these sort of heightened understanding which is just you know I think that's the aspect of diet culture that's really coming to the fore since the turn of the millennium and that that aspect diet culture that's trying to and really identifying how well suppose it wellness culture is actually just new form of diet culture disguise I think there's a lot of people are maybe star long as I am enjoying it as long as it's what I choose to do and I'm not being influenced by all these external factors that telling me that I shouldn't shouldn't do that that to me is so empower have certain levels of functioning that differ throughout our lives or differ from person to person because health really is an able philosophy too loyd feeling bad it's a much more humane and human way of seeing things to say like you know maybe sometimes I am GonNa feel bad and that's okay yeah was it with my body yeah not that idea of even if I don't feel great that doesn't make me a bad person so liberating right because it's definitely you don't have to obsess over part of Diet culture to that message is problematic in and of itself Yeah so yes I'm grateful

HOW TO SELL A SOLUTION VS. A PRODUCT OR SERVICE IN B2B
"Hey everybody welcome to the PD revenue leadership podcast. Hey what we do in this podcast is talk about what B. Two B. Sales and marketing leaders operators and experts doing today to really break through and grow their businesses at exponential levels connections you can make their other coupon codes for the products evaluate them see if the right match for you and we'll see you next time I've actually closed a few deals from coal calling which has proved to me that it works but for the most part I just feel like I'm annoying repeat partners it actually started as a sort of a freelance salesforce consulting I was basically running all the projects like my laptop in here it's going to die there we go to do all right but at the same time I am very ambitious and I do I do a lot of and partner with them and do you have a salesforce today of sales people so I do you know basically you know if if they're not on salesforce I don't want to convince them to get on it because our annual business I was working at a couple of different firms doing work on the side and after doing that for a few years I basically the server stuff but but yeah basically our whole focus is it really kinda snowball very largely from combination of doing good work building a reputation and also in a really effective way of doing sales I've done a little bit of cold calling which of customer success I do build relationships with businesses that can refer US business and I've found that to be lot of friends who are in different services business and I always say we'll find a vendor that doesn't want to be in the service business I'm just a few other folks I was running every project I was doing all the sales I was doing everything I'm fortunate that the Niche that I've picked has a lot of there's a little bit more demand than there is supply notice left my full time job and started ever peak partners and at first it was just a few other folks and people most of the time is right it's trying to find people at the right time with the right problem yeah I mean generally my pitches you're on salesforce you've been using it for however long few months a few years ten years whatever excel just existing for one and then not screwing up in some ways is enough aw on linked in a oliver welcome to the show was way getting started so spoke yourself sure so I founded it's really interesting we have for a while we've had enough inbound sales that not really had that need salesforce eighties make more money than we do from getting them on licenses that have recurring revenue and it doesn't cost them dime maybe a dime for the holding a partnership with salesforce which is how we get about half our business deal that seems to be the way to go only a few cooks in the kitchen there's probably some things that don't fully connect and is likely some room for optimization whether it's better reports and dashboards more automation revamping your process integrating third party systems dance and I will come in you know depending on the size usually maybe one to three hours I'll do an evaluation and so my bitches basically hey I'm not really sales guy I've got four salesforce shirts been consulted with two hundred free advice if you WANNA work with us work with as if you WANNA do it yourself do yourself but just the way to build a relationship and not usually goes in circles typically it is a sales director sometimes it sales operations by a lot the work that we do is sales cloud which is what most people think of when they think of salesforce and they have tons of other products for Sir area to sell into and really where a lot of our expertise lies is in the sort of sales typically work with within the account as a sales operations is it is a VP sales Chris Marketing etc but we do work with some of those other products but we've found the easiest on how to build out reports and dashboards to be more conducive to our actual needs versus whatever some guy built three years ago all of the above most of the clients that reach out to us have a specific issue as they hey go that way so you had to travel or no no I just had relationships that you run into as a people have just been misusing it or have they've kind of dug themselves into a hole by misinterpreting how to use it or rations in in really just sort of optimizing the core crm in so typically a sales directors the one who cares about that because his team can and do you do this on premise or can you do it all remotely we do both about it's probably our reports dashboards are not great we'd love some advice on how to get better data and we'd like you to give us best practices more efficient and he can get better data if we do our jobs and what is the typical situation split I'll when I started the business so are based in Portland Oregon we had no clients in the area took me about fifteen the forgot one local recently about bad say the majority of the clients that we pick up our local just because I've geared things uh-huh so our clients all have salesforce account executives and so I'll just introduce and how do you network with in salesforce to kind of get your name passed around well that's a good question from doing consulting for few years before actually had a non compete that had expired so Busse we give a lot more personal attention on as the founder and CEO I reached out to every client that I could on that one that had expired and down when I started the business that was actually a way to Kennedy if they check in with their client they have good things to say and they know that were around though often bring us new business you know and calculation where we say hey you know this is going to be ten thousand dollars to integrate but if you can save with a lot of emphasis on any every relationship is different but some of our clients are texting the consultant get to know them in a lot of them will visit Portland to see their clients and so I'll take him out to dinner and just get to know him in and some of their clients they were so busy and so having a guy who's got a lot of time in they already know just made sense and what's the main challenge people are facing today as a connecting up whatever they using for marketing automation and then sales cloud I mean get things going because I already had a relationship they knew who I was actually the previous consulting firm kind of dropped the ball on every every scope changes and so we focus on communication with the client so that they understand where we're at at but how do you compete against like the Blue Wolfson the deloittes the people who show up at dream force with the hundred thousand dollar doing double data entry which L. as I'm sure you can imagine just a waste of time and we'll even do it really try to bring a little bit of you know that kind of like the white glove treatment so in every challenge is a little different but we do a lot of integrations with third party systems alive companies are projects based off of ours and we some projects if something is like a hey we've got eighty hours for this project are we on track do we want to go over do we want a plan to go over they don't know what they want right and they don't know what they can do software yeah you know two thousand dollars a month in labor there's a break even point that you'll hit and then profit or you know just a efficiency space do you go beyond I'm sure you do beyond just sales cloud you have a pretty good vantage point and seeing what's next they're they're learning the capabilities as we go in a lot of it is US showing them I mean if we scope out a project we have never had a client that I have not been involved in the sales process with and so I think relied easier to work I say you know this is going to be eighteen hours and it's more clear cut a lot of our projects are not clear cut myself to them and usually I'll sell the meeting if I can all do it in person but usually it's just a phone call community cloud is a product that we work with basically allows you to have a portal so you'd have partners submit leads India partners this hour and we just try to be easy to work with and obviously have our bases covered with Gore technical expertise and business analysis after that and do you run into a lot of people that want fixed price versus just on retainer on Zoe typically bid offense and you know if it's a high pressure situation you know we can work outside of busy over the next five to ten years they're going to be a lot they're going to become a just grow exponentially so has heard of salesforce the mainstream uses it to there are a lot of other products that people don't know as well we're also getting into a product called B. Two B. Commerce cloud which is basically a like an ecommerce store got data in your crm so A lot of other products are are growing in in I think our our focus is against each other and get prizes there are all kinds of cool things that you can do with this one product and front integrates with your crm especially you sell something more expensive online or you sell in bulk really some of these extra products in in our core the products we work with our sales cloud service cloud CPQ community cloud and as long as the dialogue is open project seemed to go well and where do you see the space going the the sales text NBA commerce cloud so a lot more than just just a crm but most of our work still is the you know sometimes that is actually a sales job in fact sometimes it's asking my consultants to take I also sales cloud is pretty saturated most I mean anyone in sales CEO is far as growing the company it sounds like the demand is there do you have the the supply of consultants available stories work really well it's less giving you tons of business they can actually have their own dashboard they can get analytics you can have a leaderboard where you're partners who refer business or competing because we actually absorbed all the high and low demand needs of our clients because a lot of our clients don't have balancing those two is is definitely a challenge and longtime we were short on the Labor where I was were crm migration and then maybe a fifth of it is new implementation though and what's your challenges really pushing as hard to get new projects because we I can't just overload us but then more recently on more work when they're busy and finding you laboring in that that is the single hardest part of a firm like this you know talking about clients who were in the same places them they were you know whether it's data challenges wording automation process user adoption is a big one as well so doing training and really like analyzing where they're not Adam have a half admin there's there's quite a range but our workload goes up and down up and down and so all time salesforce Adleman they're mostly maybe twenty two hundred employees range some of them do balancing that with the I Colin talents talent utilizing the system on end just saying hey we've done a project just like yours this was the outcome so we have these four excel files they look at them too big for them for us build these sixty fields they're missing and by the way if you'd like we're happy to give you a you know connect you with them and you can hear direct from them because I know that has hired a bit more actually use a recruiter to help out and now we're actually a
Taking Back the Immigrant Narrative
"Hey welcome to the big podcast about politics race and culture from a p o d perspective i'm who do you want it and i'm north saturday that's right we have our very own your salary co hosting slim shady i've been dying to do that yeah i know you know what i'm telling you now i feel so much better that i got that out but hey you're you're guest hosting thank you so much and it's because we have a very special guest screws in harlem studio right now shipments mom writer and co editor of the good immigrant twentysix writers reflect on america fantastic book asian men hi how you doing i'm fantastic as always so we wanna talk to you about this book because this book is it's so time we'd have this book you you wrote and co edited the good immigrant it came out in march and it features twentysix immigrant writers who share their essays on adolescence family identity in race which is selling the thing i mean it's this is exactly what we do so she meant you're actually originally from london an airbase in new york city right now right an so you along with nick cass shoot blood you edited these twentysix essays from different writers and artists all who are either first second generation immigrants living in the united states and this is kind of follows the uk version that came out under the same name it was published in two thousand sixteen and it's one awards and it's got great reviews so what made you decide to do usa version in how does it differ from me original i think he decided daily yeah you ask version because i wouldn't even know english book came out i had i think just moved to new york on the book did really like really well we wasn't expecting it to do is well is it did which was kind of bittersweet because it made you realize just how many people felt that way and how many people in the uk felt disenfranchised insulted them we just went being heard and then it just i mean the cash talked about it the more it made sense but i'm living in america it's you know by this point it's like you know trump is president and it's a very different america to the well no i just moved to when it was still a bomb previ election campaign and it just made sense so take that original book and i'm kind of father like immigrant voices and see what we could do without in the country that are you know actually now and immigrant and i also saw you say something like oh you wish you can do this kind of but in all the countries like what's your vision is that something you want yeah we it's definitely something that we won't i mean we'd love to do like a good immigrant europe would love to be looking good immigrant you know canada it's i mean it's difficult to kind of walk out out how that would work at this point that that's definitely something you wanna do is there's there's so many voices so many stories i think that's really interesting that you bring up because now that i think about it they're similar experiences overall when you think of like immigrants right there is a shared shared understanding or shared experience but country by country or region by region their differences so what really jumps out at you with american version as opposed to the uk version something specific that you said wow this is inherently american as opposed to inherit lee you cash i think there is a greater sense of urgency with american pieces and i think there is a greater sense as fair whereas the british wants out more kind of disappointed but like historically disappointed but also we write the british from before brexit so it'd be interesting tonight well that book would have looked like if it had been mentioned just after brexit but where is like this is obviously best and you know two years into released year and a half into trump's presidency and there is definitely like a greater sense of fit is picking up on it just yeah just a lot more than one something else that the book reflects greatly is that no one immigrant experience is the same like even within the united states like within the us is no see in this book like comedian may hagans writes about her own white privilege as an immigrant which is so interesting because she writes about how she when she first came to the u s she was undocumented if she overstayed his visa and she talks about she wasn't scared she's like you know i'm white and i speak english like i don't have anything severe and that's such an interesting idea to explore so why wasn't important to publish all these different kind of experiences and accounts under one book i think the very reason that it is important to show you the like the immigrant narrative does contradict each other and that there isn't one story one version one narrative one voice right and that's unfortunately something the mainstream media always tries to do it's like they got like one one million in passenger speaking of rumors and people they got one block passenger speaking of will block people on not deeply problematic living opiates reasons i'm we want it to show that sometimes these stories like completely contradict each other and right around different people's versions of blackness little people's different versions of being english or different versions of being white completely like that very nuanced there's not one story right on the moon we have different people from different backgrounds representing no communities but themselves i think the best things will be the easiest things will be for everyone is well right and i think the point you raise about over generalization especially newest media i'm assuming the uk is justice generalized generalized every you know yeah but i think that's a big important point because as this country is changing and there's so many different experiences the labeling of immigrants if someone said immigrants you right now in the usa context not knowing that you edited this book right like let's just pretend we're not we don't know are shit for a second right but when someone says like immigrant you know people think oh it's a migrant coming from the global south central american and they wanna cross into the border and that entire immigration debate is happening but it's clearly the case here that there's such a complexity in immigrant experience and there's such a messy nece and it's not just you know america is great country of immigrants immigrants there's actual real issues so i mean is that what you take away from working only american project yeah absolutely i mean you kind of raised makes piece of writing in and we really lucked out without pay and i mean we didn't tell any of all right just like what about and i think we lucked out with the fact that she naturally kind of took it to a place of her in privilege and i think that's a really it's a very striking piece in comparison to the others and i think you hit the nail on the head like the way immigrant doesn't conjure up images of a white guy from britain coming over to walk in the financial sector like rock is in walk people thinking of when talking about immigrants in this country like they attach it in a derogatory way to people from latin america people from the middle east or people but he would generally like people of color in a note wealthy like that's what that word means especially when it's used in the kind of and had dusty demeaning contact yeah also you wearing just editor on this book right you shared your own essay 'em it's called on being came credit him i love the thought it was so angry because you're talking about this experience you had with demand in brooklyn yeah so first of all can you just tell us about that experience 'cause i just funny here's some drunk dude i would like he's been a hell of a coming out of a bar and dumb by a first some friends event and he was just some drunk and the left and he like i interfered with our conversation we were like oh africa away and then he did this whole like oh well you know if you don't like the way we do things here and go back to where you came from and then everyone just ready drunkenness borrows at which point he told me a white pitch and then like an idiot like well i don't want like that really master just like two in the morning on like a roadside brooklyn and then not spirals into including me assyrian bitch and in iraqi pitch but he's he could he couldn't think of any to all the middle east and then eventually just is mike copyrights and he's getting into it he shot me kim called ashy but like i look like why in his mind that even mean like i just it's like the the levels he took to get really really i know so like what has very immigrant experience been like you were born and raised in london and now you're in new york like what are the differences that you're seeing it doesn't hit because i'm ashley indian immigrant so like i can wear that label literally whereas in london it kind of sucks being referred to and immigrant when i was born that hot in a very different way why why does it feel like what is it suck because i feel like i'm based my parents detector cypriot older my family attacking cypriot on on how much thought his history ever gets kind relayed anyway but britain called annoys cyprus and kicked off a huge civil war on my parents migrated to london kind of just boosters in between a ceasefire oh wow and yeah and then and then went back for holiday in the the facility they they had that will stop to get trapped there again but it's one of these things where it's just like you know i i never really felt puckish enough 'cause i didn't grow up there even though i spend a lotta time that and then i never thought english enough so it's like i was just going off in this in this space this kind of being everything and nothing like little kids immigrant but then coming to america was just like okay when i'm actually an immigrant so it doesn't feel like it's like we were saying earlier about like the what immigrant like we we done conjure up images of like white guys coming walking like the financial district right it was growing up in england it was always kind of used as a derogatory things and it displacement is is really uncomfortable and kind of painful when like you've one possible and right now he's like you know you haven't onset and you shouldn't happen yeah but it's not derogatory now i'm in in this context united states is well remind like i mean i know there's a british empire and there is years and years you know centuries of of colonization imperialism and and and i'm not trying to compare it's a british experience with american experience but the notion of saying immigrate now in the united states in some sectors you would say it totally is derogatory but you don't you but do you feel i mean i mean obviously so you had you're bar experience so why is it different i mean this is this is the thing and that's the thing that i took about so much like in my piece on van kim kardashian where it's like actually yes that type of what immigrant is still seen and still using a derogatory way head but like me because it's a natural thing i tend to not be offended by it but we own it i can own it who say like i have a huge level of privilege had to because i'm not skinned yeah and i have this accident so i literally concise and people don't untuckit and there'll be like cool what part and underneath and it's like this is like yeah we leave this is the first time in my life that i've ever been english because people can't get past maxon which most people seem to really love it yeah that was the most interesting part of it to me because you are treated like a white person yeah like the guy literally called your ledge michael doing what is right for me that was so surprising 'cause i never thought that you would be more looked at as an immigrant in london then in new york yeah i just now so hard forgot grass yeah but i think that raises the question because when people say you know is new york city more welcoming immigrants where people say the city immigrants maybe it's just something right it's worth welcoming to some yeah and you fit in that molds 'cause there's a history of that right that you know oh it's in english the accident so you must be cool right you must be you must be good yeah do you think that's part of that you think that's part of the difference yeah definitely biggest back in london it's not just some fucking is everyone like it doesn't you know i don't stand out but what makes me standout is if the lot i look different and i'll go parents who dollar hotdogs and you know a funny name or whatever you know so it's like in london it is the things that made me standout what we've seen is like negative things whereas hey the things that make me standout out primarily my voice is something that like american people buying large she kind of fashion ice yeah yeah yeah it's like you're on you know a netflix series all of a sudden you know yeah exactly like britain brooklyn exactly exactly so the title i wanna focus on the title of the book see idea of what makes and immigrant good you know quote you know the good immigrant versus the bad immigrant and so i'm just gonna rita quote from the editors notes the title was a response to the narrative that immigrants are bad in quotes by default until they prove themselves otherwise their job steelers benefits grounders girlfriend thieves and criminals only one they winning olympic medal treat you at your local hospitals or rescue child from the side of the building do they become good so we talk about that all the time because especially now it you know not only the travel ban by trump what he's doing with the zero tolerance policy and asylum seekers and with all that's it's happening you're hearing all these stories of these doctors and researchers you know during the travel ban they were being deported or detain antic seems like when people talk about immigrants they focus on the valuable one because i think there's a dehumanization especially it's happened and in in the southern border so this idea of like navigating the good immigrant in quotes as you put together the book is that something that drove you guys did choose the writers that you've chosen this what's his name you want it to really dive deep into well yeah i mean like you said we said this is not i mean the the name itself is ironic because like what we wanna do is kind of focus on that space between the good immigrant and about immigrant much two narratives of immigrant we get yeah and we want to tell the stories of people in between plane the contributions that we chose well actually it was just like a wishlist maybe it's just the list of people who like books we realize oil light autistic we liked it a director's comedians that we like we didn't select anyone because we were like we think they're immigrant story it's gonna be interesting or they're they're actually good yeah or they're good immigrants or not i know yeah yeah i i we never we never saw about like what their immigration experience would be like danny criteria was the day or a parent how to be an immigrant so they had to be festival second generation immigrant that was literally only like criteria round that they own that we were just like i really fucking like these people unlike what they do and what they put out there and not be super interested hit like that story is i'm bill not they can tell how kind of whatever story in not framework but they won't which is why are we saying that we got lucky with made space because i couldn't have lost a best a piece on the privilege of being like oh fuck it like you know just stay hit remember new movies are in dental dental renew and come back and that's fine but we never know what's gonna bother me yeah yeah we didn't selects anyone thinking all hopefully will get one of those stories yeah we just got really lucky yeah but the thing is you don't just stay on this notion of the good immigrant versus the bad immigrant you kind of mentioned it when when you were saying it there's nothing in between and i'm saying to myself were all human beings yeah you know what i mean so why is that happening because that seems to be imposed from white supremacy in every you know that to me is like there's centuries of that being the other so why we allowed that dichotomy that sort of like you're either good or bad i think parents generation kind of blew into it and i understand why they did as well i think like a parents generation z migration in the fifties sixties sixties and seventies were significantly more vulnerable than all generation is i understand it i think it was easier for them to just be like okay be one of the good ones just sort of like lay low yeah yeah and i think latin america yeah i i think that's why that kind of narrative i think sort of spiraled no i blame them until like i totally get it as a coping mechanism but it's now something that you know we just we are a different generation we are living in different times i think content and i were kind of going backwards but i think we feel safe it's now kind of unpack that deconstruct up right on but i i think it came from a good place i think so to speak i mean it came from a white place but you know i think it was a survival mechanism there's also the notion in of like what people wanna hear from immigrants one of my favorite essays was jade chang it's called had a center you're own story and she talks about why people only wanna hear immigrants stories about pain in wide noser the only like marketable yup stories and you see that all the time you see that in tv movies awaiting the good shepherd trade you only see the mets like suffering or or the hardships that they're going through and i was like publishers are interested in that top producers are incident so her as is basically like this guidelines for us to how to make are joy as valuable as are paying that right right if you all these great steps and literally everyone that i read would sell related will be like oh i have been there done that so annoying like when people do that to you know like how do you do that in your own work how do you fight against this business that only wants to market you're suffering i haven't actually but i mean i'm not quite fucking miserable way to see me but no i really don't time and i actually kinda hot stock i stopped lost some wall star is still in the throes of agitating the good immigrant usa and the reason why i stopped because i realized that these additives only like mainstream media wants his my voice when it was something to do with his immigration racism or is non right and every single time i pitched anything else they didn't want it and it's fine if i'm in charge of that narrative it's fine if i'm the past and he says i think it's important to put this book out of this conversation about my experiences but it was it was getting really really fucking offensive tell me how that is what we see is only wanna hear me talk about the same shit which i don't know how many times like you might say well you know i'm not actually say like how many different ways can you say like racism socks i don like it's enough and i think that's why i on a miserable ross like kind of seeking into like i mean i'm quite silly like in real life i think like wherever i struggle with a tight end my writing the i'm done doing that one other people's times now i'm about to start writing again for a magazine called the face which is just coming back and one of the criteria but i had with he added to the i like i don't want us to cry racism anymore like i won't be able to talk about i wanna write an article about dog's yeah like i want it to be like an album now i realize i would really like that space to do that and he had a suicide yes absolutely that's fine i was gonna say there's like this interesting dichotomy that they want you're stories about pain but then if you write about something that's not familiar to them then they don't want that either oh yeah yeah just like how our audience is gonna relate to that is like i love spiderman i don't relate to spiderman i'm like i'll watch all the spiderman ville give me twenty new report and i'm gonna watch and they're like why when it comes yeah against they're like oh how you could make this really well but also we want you to suffer no just fucking right about spiderman here's the thing it's like you don't have to write about fucking spiderman through an immigrant lens just write about spiderman exactly and that's the thing that i realized when i first started writing about like race and racism all you is censoring white people in it and realize that like a lot of the what i was doing was about like trying to educate people on that in of itself was getting like really draining and i think like in the last few years i realize i actually i just wanna be writing in speaking to people color oh yeah who who can relate to me ross's then censoring whiteness all the time and then being like the central character and everything and it became a lot easier for me when i was just like i'm not having to explain what this means like i'm not going to explain what this phrases i had a couple of times even which i think i took about i used to do back in the book a well in my piece which by drums and there's this whole clary about like oh is it gonna get confusing if he's looking at the end i there were some people who know what it is and those are the people who are minus four like if you don't know what a dumb back as as a white american you can google it just like yeah if you don't know exactly look it up like seriously like right yeah and it doesn't have to be townside you not exactly it's it's not attala size there's no like transportation next it you don't know what booker's google words are bouquets and carry on with the pace like not exactly i think those in my new rules around like rice saying like i'm not centering whiteness anymore i love it i'm well you could you could walk out and you're right if it's a center like in the same same way like people drop like french was in articles and essays old at the time line and fucking locked in a news release coming to these people being like why these words and had nobody understands then what do you doing this is pretentious so i have wishy thriving in tough words or arabic craze wherever like as if you don't if you don't know you don't like that that's fine maybe you're not my audience that's right oh man that that was a lot of truth are so bad but i do wanna talk a little bit more about the booking because he did mention de urgency of this and about trump's america yeah and there's a lot of stories right there's a lot of stories that deal with being an immigrant in trump's america like this story from fucking my fucking mir so where her neighbor burn texas gives her a bag of skittles yeah that's already painful pace right after trump like member that donald trump junior tweeted that tweet that he said if i had a bowl of skittles and i told you just three would kill you would you take a handful that's are syrian refugee problem i'm like what the fuck dude man which is fascinating because when complete disclosure here my mentor and one of my dearest journals friends suzanne communist outer yano who is from puerto rico like were both porter rican were both born and raised on the island she wrote this piece about puerto rico in the u s reflecting on the context of hurricane maria and i just find it fascinating that her experiences reporter rican because we're not quote unquote you know people like oh wondering is on immigrants are americans and i'm like yeah it depends on who you wanna frame the colonialism here and you know sometimes american label gets imposed on us and we have a migration history so i just thought it was kudos for you to bring in suzanne i know you know her and she's the greatest yeah it's a it's such a small sat down as i she's literally my next door neighbor it's so funny how things turn out yeah so you have these experiences you know is this a form of political activism and these stories are becoming sort of like combat combating against trump's american like is that how you view this book more is activism coming from these stories or do you think it's just a byproduct of these authors words i actually i'm not sure i think i cosby and the cash register but like my personal angle whether it was more like i warn people who have voiced have a voice and that was more important semi ross's than i mean i love anything anything a tool to fucking combat the government we have right now on to combat like the white supremacy in the not system that is just running through the veins if this country but failing that i won't people who are being pushed like under the surface to come up and have a voice they can feel like there are people who were sharing their stories and give other people outside of this book like a space to be like fuck me to like i can relate to that like aitken where these people are saying i say it like i couldn't stand strong you know if anything change the direction we're going in the brilliant but if not then at the very least as we wanna office some kind of solace communities who probably feel like they've got very little platform right now yeah i mean it's like a i always say it's like a tug vote against these aircraft carrier yeah and like where all the tugboat you know what i mean like you have to provide those voices and it's a massive i mean if these twenty six people could be national voices that make national national television appearances refraining immigration debate story my god we will be so far ahead of this analogy but obviously obviously we have tight tallow size are turkish were like you know go when you're little corner immigrants sears you're little book anyway by that but he just got a chip away just got a chip away okay let's move onto our final segment which we called binge worthy worthy or what is benjamin on so what something you watch read or listen to recently that you just can't stop thinking about it doesn't have to be journalism it could be a book twitter tv anything recently i've been obsessed with two tv shows which i keep watching over and over again one is russian doll which oh yeah fucking incredible and also like she realized i mean this is basically a drunk woman in new york who dies every single day in the lives out the same day and i was like that's made a lot of the other one is rodney on hooley oh have you seen it i've seen three episodes i i really loved it i i would love to hear your thoughts on around me yeah i'm finding it there aspects of it literally irritating but i think it's the first time the middle east and women be portrayed with a level of new ones we could still do a lot better but it's the first time i've seen the tv show trying me the way from trump's not something that like quite like about it it feels like a statement piece i like him i love the fact that in the work that we do like we're all my yeah no i'm watching these like to television right you know what that's important i think it's important i think self care like we talk about it all the time but they say you gotta love inspiration from watching tv shows why now is the time well i hear you well i'm watching things i i hear you but yeah self care is really important because we were living out like the the trauma that were writing about speaking about you know so often i need a sad day with some

Welcome to before breakfast a production of iheartradio. Good morning this is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to think ahead of time about what will be today's highlight dun-rite. This can make your day feel far more pleasant and productive. This tip comes from Jake. NAP and John's Razi's book make time in this book. They argue that focusing on activities that fall between long term goals and short term tasks is the key to slowing down bringing satisfaction his faction to your daily life and helping you make time. long-term goals are useful for orienting. You in the right direction but make it hard to enjoy the time time spent working along the way and tasks are necessary to get things done but without a focal point they fly in a forgettable Hayes. The middle ground between the two is daily. Highlight Napkins are at ski right. That we want you to begin each day by thinking about what you hope will be the bright spot. What if at the end of the day someone asks you? What was the highlight of your day? What do you want your answer to be when you look back on your day? What activity vity or accomplishment or moment do you want to save her? That's you're highlight now. A highlight doesn't have to be an obvious highpoint spending half the day at a spa on some days. The highlight might be finishing work task. That really needed to get done. It could be something satisfying if difficult like hitting a speed goal during your post work. Run or maybe. It's something joyful like lunch with a colleague that you always find hilarious. In any case. Napkins are at ski recommend choosing a highlight. I like that will take about sixty to ninety minutes. This isn't a huge amount of time in your waking sixteen to eighteen hours per day but figuring out the highlight ahead of time. We'll do several positive things I you'll look forward to the highlight and structure the days logistics. To make sure it happens second you'll notice the highlight while it's happening it can be easy to trudge through even good things in a distracted frame of mind but if you know lunch with your colleague is a highlight alight. You'll pay attention to his funny jokes and give yourself permission to laugh a bit more rather than thinking about your inbox and rather than going through the motions. That post I work run. You really think about it and celebrate. What your body can do and finally choosing a highlight ahead of time can help change the story? We tell ourselves sells about our lives. It's easy to fall into a trap of thinking I have no time or I'm not in control of anything but even an hour spent on an activity that you are executing agency over can go a long ways. Your highlight gives each day of focal point. NAP At ski right. Research shows that the way you experience experience. Your days is not determined primarily by what happens to you in fact you create your own reality by choosing what you pay attention to in a previous episode before breakfast. I talked about turning morning time into family time. And if you're looking for a family breakfast discussion topic this could be good for everyone. What will today's highlight be looking forward to the day schedule? What is the main thing you'd like to remember from the next few hours now? Maybe some days the highlights won't happen or some days. It will be really tough to identify a highlight but as nap and Zaremski note the upside out of seeking out a daily highlight is that we can always try again tomorrow eventually. There's going to be a highlight. We can foresee and celebrate. Great in the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

event in near Salt Lake City Utah on the weekend we'd be coming home and look at the map and it was sixty miles out of the way to if I think three times out of our last sixteen events so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA we're GonNa Cook what brought it and see how that brings us obviously the one difference would be the here and and do the the great American family road trip a lot of kids and then had across the country and and what time I wife got that plan for the week and we took our time off work I I've got a backwoods party I cook chicken and we're cooking the three other meets on a backwoods fat boy with with Guru so well to Cook I love to about an hour outbound wrote about twelve hours so ben I've been a long day but drifting we're ready to get rolling we've we started cooking seventy so you're going to go with the white meat breast anything that you're going to do special strategy wise to keep it as moist as possible for the judges to sample regularly saying okay we do well here you've got to enter a a real competition if we do well so we we won that competition it back they're not petition and we enter so it was going to be an automatic to the Jack couldn't pass up the opportunity put a couple of posts out on the barbecue brethren and about eighteen hours later the white meat chicken now I don't normally cook white meat chicken so we're GONNA do we're a new breast boneless skinless breast and set him up and and see how that goes but joy her from a lot of teams that go down for the first time that it's very easy to get caught up in a lot of the goings on down there in Lynchburg which can lead your schedule getting compromised when it comes to the prep-work have you made any special plans to guard against that one that one of the things that and we're GONNA we're gonNA pull fairly early slice it up keep it together on the boxes the plan so we can you know keep as much heat into the original of the Jack Daniels World Championship Barbecue Cook off which one aside from I mean which one aside from both do you think is best to get as the win in your career as you do this whole competition cooking thing the invitational or the Jack Daniels I think okay about but we're GonNa do there in fact I've threatened a couple of times over the last month just throw a little white meat and some of our boxes we've been braxton competition so joe there seems to be that recurring conversation among some pitmasters as to what event they would rather win during the course of a calendar year or perhaps even during their barbecue career the American William I'm not typically that would that would be the pretty teenager walking around with you go joe what are you going on right now I work on backwards we'll be all the granddaddy that's the one it's hard to get into in my opinion it's the most prestigious whether it should be or not I guess it's up for discussion but in close to nineteen people come and go throughout the weekend so I'm GonNa let them do a lot of that stuff and that's kind of been my plan kind of what I'm what what I've gotten more h this year so I'll grant all in the Midwest but we did smoke on the water in little rock the spring and and kind of our stuff to down air and other than that new teams are this year and I think that'll be something that everybody's GonNa have to keep in mind Joe Beland of tippecanoe barbecue crew joining us here on the barbeque central radio show word of it and I'm going to try to focus on cooking while having a fun time and picking it all at the same time but I think you're right that'd be a balance a lot each of everybody I've talked to and we're GonNa Cook what got us here and we've we've been on quite a run for five contests since June I finished out of the top five line is I'm going

extra activities and enjoy that contact John Solberg via email and John J. O. N. at the BBQ Central Show Dot com what a Nice Guy Jobe Wendy's I'm being completely ignorant and we'll make fun of them later any tips on how to properly shut it down until maybe the spring next year well actually WanNa make fun of them we never if you're a die hard barbecued lover you don't shut them down if you do want to shut them down the first thing you gotTa do you gotTa clean them in I think that the barbecue and grilling season has come to an end and they're actually looking to shut down and store the grills barbecue so for those people that want to do that inside remind Bradley and we were eating at a restaurant called Ria and just getting ready to sit down and have some dinner so I'm pretty oh I'd give a lot of thought about changing stuff up and and we're just we're not abuse we cook in a pretty diverse area we cooked in seventy we're looking at quite frankly we're gonNA WE'RE GONNA make your safety make sure it's done but at the same time I've been chicken I'm very tired of eating it a grilled steak or some smoked pork shoulder some smoke ribs or brisket that's been smoked for twenty four hours in the winter I mean barbecue is a passionate and happy camp complained for Wednesday night when nothing says getting ready for a great dinner like taking time out to contribute to the barbary central radio right backyard that keeps the snow off of my grills smokers so that it makes it just a little bit easier for me over the over the season to get heading into winter season here over the next four five six months depending on where you're at a cold weather grilling and barbecue tips and I believe you just mentioned one with layering of the force for those of us that are out there that actually experience the thermal changes during the course of the year we have these things called seasons and a lot of people gloves put on a couple layers of clothing and get out your backyard and fired up that's what it's all about there is no shutting down annoying and wow that felt great and that was that was quite an accomplishment internally our biggest big accomplishment as a barbecue team is possible and we've done that a lot of practicing with a chicken breast and throwing them into blocks and living sit on the counter for fifteen minutes and then dive in and eat and and I feel I feel some pretty cold winters in the in the city Toronto I actually chant my backyard I put a five hundred square foot tent over party during cook and I just want to keep the snow off because the snow becomes a big deterrent you see everything covered in snow you don't want to deal with it so I put up a tent got my draft bridge I got a flat screen. TV and a DVD player. I've got everything that need to be there to make my life nice and in my garage which is right up the back of my patio where all my grills and smokers are any my garage I gotta catch up my beer that's what you gotta do but the bottom line is it's a lot easier to keep them fired up and get out there put some long johns on where to get some up and enjoy it ted reader joining us here on the show Ted so that kind of dovetails nicely into the next question which is for those of us that actually do it year round and are going to be world at barbecue we are tree sixty five twenty four seven every day in and out fired up get it hot smoker thousand ten over the Hawk line welcome in from the windy city five here ted Reader said are you buddy when you're gonNa Cook Things you want to be organized when you're cooking in the winter keeping yourself Nathan simple is the most important thing get it done smoker grill indoors dangerous your kill yourself carbon monoxide has been known to kill people I've heard yeah it's one of those things just got to stay away from fast and keep yourself warm also propane heaters electric heaters in your garage we'll keep you nice and warm but never ever ever ever clothing as route there but what are some other things we WANNA keep in mind as the colder weather approaches well for what I do because I'm based out of Toronto Ontario Canada and we inside no clean and write down cover them up tie kite keep them dry keep the moisture in the humidity out of those grills and smokers it's at Elaine's level temperature and I'm not dealing with the cold and then when I put it in my charcoal chimneys I get a nice fire burning mason quicken hot and then now what do you have do you or are the things in specific that one would need to keep in mind especially not so much with the propane but with charcoal and colder weather all which will take a lot longer to get temperature and burn so I keep my charcoal actually I move my charcoal into my basement where it's as nights now I don't believe in Margaritas I believe in just straight shot kilo because it goes straight through the system and get your feeling good now we do candy one thing is making sure that your charcoal stays dry you don't want to have any humidity or moisture getting into that charcoal this weekend would with certain hit her office memories I think just for the from the web in a play out in my mind anyway to put in your request for a future show please maybe not intentionally we're GONNA going on I'm GonNa have half of the town of CNN's garage with me I'm GonNa have to if nothing else loves the largest Cheering section we're going to have some and I don't have to deal with the snow I go out there at any time I put some heaters in my tents on propane heaters so that keeps me a little bit warmer but I guess Mrs website you can check out all the products that he has to offer and then there are quite a bit of products out there so be sure to check that website out Ted we have Halloween coming up here in bill and I'm going to dive in and that avocados going to be moist in premium hot ingests sleet and I tell you avocado as an aphrodisiac flee week and a half time any particular recipes that you've fancy for this particular time to do they even have Halloween up candidate for crying out loud oh yeah we have meanwhile in Mexico one it will be Tequila night we're going to put aside my favorite friend called Jack Daniels who I truly truly love and believe me Louis but actually this I'm going to be in Mexico so we're going to talk a little bit about what I'm GonNa be doing while I'm sitting on the beach in Playa del Carmen relaxing on the the best beverage on the face of the Earth but I'm gonNA switch it up for the time that I mean imply in Mexico and strictly drink one hundred percent the gob a tequila down a little bit faster but bottom line is keep it dry it's GonNa burn just finding a
The Disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
"The TV plus different they have the ability take from those two psychic powers government conspiracies history is riddled flukes. You're joined as always with our super producer Paul Mission Control Deck in spirit today or a nickname or Appalachian for seth that's appellation in the meantime you or you you or here and that makes this way to describe it the last time I saw you we were in Los Angeles us when all three of us are in the room short yet we took planes back to Atlanta and the reality is that we are on the road and in the air has we speak there are a lot of in the air right now flying this guys and let's it's Who is it I think Louis Ck who has a bit about how amazing is traveling traveling by plane is that amazing experience but other times I mean it's any other means if it's across a large body of water than it's there are some issues like we said just getting through security now at they're also at airports hanging out and it gets really crowded the planes themselves get really crowded moisture acts in the air or even lightning right record was somewhere around sixteen eighteen hours in our the environment that's true it's true that planes are often delayed and anybody afraid of flying just think about that while you're driving on the interstate your driving let's all be very conscious of the fact that the only thing preventing we'll still sometimes crash and every once in a while a plane will simply disappear in flight three seventy here are the facts okay so there are a lot of numbers in here that did the plane? At least a Boeing seven seven seven now's a specific kind of seven Boeing seven seven seven now this particular model of seven seven and it's designed to accommodate upwards of two hundred sixty passengers so two hundred just we'll just add in add in for free here on our nation wide open Kazeem put more people in the plane oh and then still Boeing seven seven seven two h sixty are that was flying on with Boeing seven seventy seven produced it was first flown on May fourteen came out with the confirmed conspiracy to rob you of legroom This plane was configured to to the Gills right yeah well let's go ahead and talk about that just so most people understand in the in the center aisle then it had two seats ro a row of seats on the there were twelve crew members there were two hundred twenty seven passengers one hundred fifty you will read different estimates of the total number of people aboard beloved more on that on February twenty third two thousand fourteen they found no significant issues that point so let's get to the day on March eighth twenty fourteen was one of those early early morning you're gonna fly basically through the night and probably there's centrally flying North East a little bit to Beijing from Kuala Israel to arrive in Beijing at six thirty five am and this was a routine the plane from point a to point B in fly it from Point B. Point as so it ends up where and it's this consumes ballpark of eighty two thousand thousand two hundred pounds of fuel including it's reserves this gives keep the craft aloft in case they need to divert to another airport think of it like a to set the facts out there so we've established the following things as being normal seventy different from all the other routine trips back and forth from Beijing warning this episode of stuff they don't want you to know is innovation and Smart Home Security from Adt combined with twenty four seven monitoring from the most trusted real protection means eighteen thousand employees safeguarding your homes that's right your homes with emmer smart locks and smart lights all controls from ADT APP or from the sound of in the car when your kids are at school with the go APP with an S. O. S. button so if dot com slash podcast this question yes the the official numbers that are occurring here just we'll try and keep you as focused as possible as we're getting through this movie before where a pilot is involved or you get to spend time in cockpit of a pilot transmissions that occur between air traffic control and the things that are done by voice where to to human beings are talking to each other but a lot of other at varying places throughout the world as an plane is flying over certain areas impor- up to Beijing there are several places they're going to go over Vietnam Vietnam air traffic control or whichever local air traffic controllers are there that was sent out to air traffic controllers Was this automated position six Malaysian time so that came that's what thirty twelve thirty five twist or anything it's sort of the Meta data of the flight how much six thousand six hundred pounds a gas we're we're ready to go we're we're doing the right thing image shaw acknowledges the transition from the Kuala Lumpur radar to the Ho- of a handshake or a pass off so that despite no longer Jordan later on in the story because there's a very specific thing you have to do with traffic controllers it just so the crew is expected to signal air traffic control contact was lost interesting part about that last in three seven zero contact Ho Chee Men one-to-zero decimal nine good night transmission is normal he didn't say anything you know like the elder Gods rise the we just have to understand few basic things radar relies on secondary radar secondary radar needs a transponder signal is transmitted an altitude a few seconds after m h three seventy crosses at least as far as Malaysian air traffic control can see and then an radar and that's that time occurs sets around one twenty one thirty nine transponder to stand by which is like I'm trying to imagine what an equivalent loan right you've got let's say it's a Google home speaker in your phone the phone the other in this scenario it appears that somebody just turned the bluetooth transmitting yeah exactly the people in the aircraft various means to no avail the captain of another aircraft attempted trying to reach them to relate what air traffic control in Vietnam was communication but he only heard mumbling and static in that right there could get into at two thirty nine am and seven thirteen am as the search is acknowledged that received it but it was an automated acknowledgment it was seen contact but if we're jumping to you know the plane was supposed to be Asian again and something on that plane is still responding that means it's it's functioning military radar shows flight three seventy turning warning military radar shows flight three seventy at thirty five thousand seven eighteen am which is believed to be the time around the time when the plane ran league disappeared so what happened we'll tell you and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights he even slept in his I heard how GEICO proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance so he switched the days weeks months years following the disappearance of the flight numerous Matt which which way do you want to go with this let's start with some of the most plausible stuff that's out we know a little more information specifically what we mentioned right before the break the military or at least the they went off course right we talked about that north and then took a left turn somehow that's what we know so double the idea that somehow the people responsible for flying this plane to the brain and then what happens it describes what happens in the brain spend maybe you can probably you could probably explain this a little better than I but the thinning of air ear to be able to breathe correctly and when you're flying in a plane if only take a few seconds before you would begin to experience hypoglycemia and feet in the air so the air you're breathing inside the cabin is they call and disoriented they wouldn't have been able to make good decisions or at least decisions that were thing even if the crew was unresponsive because the cabin depressurized they least stayed on that path northeast towards Beijing yes and the aircraft would crash very soon thereafter however this doesn't what do that or an auto pilot program would not do that hypoglycemia is known the gradual decompression of the cabinet occurred such that people last minute to do what they saw as a course correct that's the question Australian the evidence indicates this is the most plausible explanation a member of the crew possibly in a suicide attempt Shah was reported by his co workers and friends to be going through a period and in these courses background checks the police investigation of Zohari he made absolutely no plans after March eighth yeah that's warriors weirdly enough that's not as uncommon as any of us would probably like somebody deciding to take their own life along with two hundred plus others what shorts Tatas about the human experience is that humans are very it's not uncommon there's another example Germanwings flight nine five to five technology that helps inside hijackers carry off something like this the really impossible for crew members or passengers to break in and stop him also later set up at his house you know for me when I was playing it it was just on my home computer says that you would need to manipulate on a plane to make it function and coordinates of takeoff and landing right so talk about that already like we honestly don't know at all basically where this plane could have crashed it's insane but several of flying simulator right yeah according to New York magazine the F. B. I. The US and what's interesting about that that article which is through their intelligence or ed and then the projected flightpath of the actual plane in proof positive that Zahari himself took over the plane her there's no way he may have just been wanting to fly out towards Antarctica that for everybody because he's a pilot he might have just been practicing flying planes yeah rule out suicide based on an analysis of the cruise backgrounds hardy and we do have to we we have a couple of things we have to mention about those reports elderly days of the investigation partially because they did not want also did not want to reveal their military capabilities because if you allow trees and state actors and Vietnam will say Oh you you can info but the this this other report argues that nation it's the one you saw most mainstream U s media the problem is there's reporting to be from China like a terror group from China but it was it was johnny and passengers flying on fake German passports I wanna say until we actually find the majority of the wreckage there's no way to know it yeah and that has to do with the plane's autopilot system because after nine eleven so that air traffic controllers could take over basically in remote control the fly that plane he's that hijackers on the plane around the ground hijacked this auto pilot program in and there's a tech writer named Jeff Wise who said maybe maybe they flew the plane north to Kazahkstan but this doesn't this opt in named field McConnell real first name is field and he based semiconductor manufacturer named Free Scale and this is something some of us of her stealth capabilities so he's saying like it it didn't wreck I didn't know whether there was sand to it but but I thought okay well these are value subject matter experts to someone but does that make them a high value target if we were gaming it out that would be very helpful quote unquote aboard for to just be shot down and a lot of people said government somewhere possibly Malaysia possibly the US possibly China shot playing the thought at least and that he was shot down because it was perceived as a threat Shen that proposed there is not possible there Chris yeah that's a that's a red at theory yeah the only strong support it would have been in range done that's it of course he went to North Korea like hey maybe it was a black hole oh you mean don lemon room CNN broccoli not rebut also this hid behind that I and we put the burden of proof on the person that we're half hybrid alien who just has a real interest in like screwing Tinian half human hybrid and just generally hates people I'm just asking then nobody saw the plane again but nobody saw black hole again and we're just a quick little I'm there was a poll on CNN's website that I think has been deleted now elected by aliens time travelers or beings from another dimension there is no that particular poll believe that somehow aliens were involved right it was into dude as extraterrestrials board the plane and then take it to north hundreds of people went missing on that plane including the pilot and the first captain and one of it a little bit personally that is not to discount the tragedy that has occurred here yes and toll of Diego Garcia or that it was but we do know that some experts have claimed to out there within the Indian Ocean pieces one of the things like that you can actually match it up and say yes this came from this specific model and it called what really happened to Malaysia's missing airplane that is written Ah Williams does a great job of outlining there's a particular man that I the hunter I mean really he's he's been looking for pieces just happens to wash ashore and then they notify him yet to continue with the examples in reunion island are on reunion island two thousand fifteen that would make a total in her Madagascar there was a cabin interior panel found in June twenty seventeen rain on Mozambique there the stuff is out there it's being found one interesting engage but was doling it out slowly to to for the edge Lords online yeah I I would agree at least from and going travelling all over the world with people in particular there is a young dotted across the area there the whole point is released Gibson I mean you know however many months after the wreckage was found from and then if you find that route then maybe you can find the origins of where it actually and it's interesting because that would be my because now we're were several years past the events people the government of Malaysia wishes that of course this

I've been the industry and I started doing it part time okay now it took a while it was it was a labor of enemies Alka felt like it was really you know putting something together and creating a loyal following all right so that was cool all right okay and then after space in in our apartment and then we we were able to buy this small house when we got married and my wife and I got married and it was a small space so I had a little bit ding little things to go that's how they do it so then I just started doing it and I left the tailor shop and got a job I don't know eighteen hours in Oh should I have class it takes over your life just six yeah and the hours is Whiz by it doesn't feel a where he is just in there her at that point with the custom tailor shop were all right you ready to ready to roll in your house what was it wasn't just it wasn't just like that okay again l. is yeah it was especially grueling back then because I had to find a space I didn't have like a like a Desi Arnez shirt you know a- and and I walked in there may solemn go hey what sizes that he's he says alley and induce a little bit of work and get to work and Selma and it was this a lot wow yeah so then I moved to a place another place that Soma and then the lease holder told everybody that the owners visiting and it was a complete fraud but this happened a while back the seven and two thousand thirteen jackets and shirts then I got a call from good friend of Mine Scott Baird that he is a corner of a trick dog yeah that was it that was kind of a that's awesome that really got me right there so this should be a little trick when I started working there are there demeanor or just like their star or there I mean the lack of swag yeah exactly and their hair color and color a mother-in-law's garage for awhile and bless her heart you know but it just it was it was a no valley so I had a get to know it was just word of mouth okay at it really just started with rid amounts the has kind of Nice yeah I got some really cool places to yeah able top sewing machine there okay and this was just put a timetable on this and this is in this in this this was in two thousand twelve two thousand twelve okay then I started working in industry the service industry and it was it was harsh ahead a move four this is it yeah everything's put he put it on me you know that causes Kuwano and started hanging out a little bit more and started studying the SP to make aprons for them and okay we'll we'll see what I can do and I made them the aprons and then after that I started getting like seeing them at people stylus yeah and if you are able to pick up on someone's just look there you're you're upbringing yeah heart of you I love you go find something you really love to do and you do it right I not too simple as that I sorta doing consultations Brennan swatches and saying this is what I can do and it was a lot of figuring out yeah I had no idea the fuck it was of that's the thing doing this my head was never like oh I'm fashion or I'm in the I just never thought that way okay you know I just wanted to make something I like the little details you know I like it to be made well a agonize over the little details I still do like yesterday I was like that's awesome that's awesome to have that you see that right in front of you your whole life you know that that's something that everybody gets to get the one it's the I'm selling one here and there and all of a sudden I started getting requests from people hey can you meet me and a really proud of the fact that I was able to land some really good gigs and I decided let's just make this a business out there I'm not making anything else but aprons is zero project that I've done one hundred times better than yesterday yeah I make a game out of it I have a little detail on on like this little detail that wouldn't mattered anybody else but it's because back then they were still in the old it's changed a little bit now back then they were filling the old school mentality where you had a by a bulk but in on it that's called Janati yes on an opportunity to go well no one's buying a jacket is I'm getting a call to do like twenty jacket two thousand twelve when you your first when did you like technically established Ackerley was it already in two thousand dollars I officially started in two thousand seventeen okay you've from the way I do it is I think what motivates me is just the next the next project and how am I gonNa do this did you ever at knowledge doing this at that time was like oh man the L.

sensation a relaxation like all right okay but that's how I relax and you're doing another project well I want I got kicked out of there and then I moved to another spot and we got a victim okay and then I moved to of the story of staggeringly different lyrics different musical you know versions of it but stagger Lee uh-huh damn should I do this for this you know I it just drives me nuts still again and that's what keeps you going yeah yeah and I met you better know it you you've got to improve they're really into that all right all right so then it's an hour in two thousand was actually the last time move from the what was your last move then I have to read a book or something like just to take my brain off of what I was doing like just to change something up and and it does how it's like what are your crowd is what you're selling in your product don't do everything yourself you know I hired a bookkeeper I finally got today I think I'm going to clean up and I'm going to start stitching a wallet okay just to kind of change yeah you've got like your mind extra room in the back Be My studio I just I live in that place all right let's go in there until all hours yeah day night holy like like I mean mind maisy mine is not on the work level aspect but when I have done long hours of editing or on video whatever I can do better you know and I'm after I'm after that I'm after

it all yourself and if early didn't like that he got up and told him his hat back in and Billy Lyons through a colleague didn't want to give him his hat back so own and didn't have any more cash put down so his colleague took his debts and hat away as collateral and and another man I think I think everything centered around that everything is cool it's great advice I mean like absolutely Guoxin you're of a riverboat in Saint Louis Missouri and they're gambling on the boat and he's gambling with a colleague I guess he he was and it just makes it fun and make a Game Adam it makes it fun for me you know I can make like sixty of the same thing like this one's better than and then it keeps you etiquette he was a bad man or and they would they would write it stack a Lee people would say column stag because he went solo or you know they're different the MAC and e- became famous I mean it's a folklore bitterly been like hundreds of recordings everything centered around the devil is in the details everything's that's when I was a tailor shop never details on the back of the caller that I thought were cool but there were like different colored threads and little things that take time 'cause yet the chains threat out and then yeah and then so it arm shot this guy and all that kind of falls into place so yes so it was it was a card game the best I will always be a student and I will always try to perfect the I'm doing I'm never happy with it yeah I mean I always find proficient being really good at it Gotcha trying to be the best yeah in my mind I just want to be the best and the end and that's it and I I will never we remember levi-strauss or do they just wear his name on their ass you know it's it's kind of like that like him in the late eighteen hundreds he was a stylish pimp Roi you know he was like like the Mac they call them they call the pimps them secondly pull out a gun and empty and emptied the gun on him and took his hat and walked out like like nothing happened allow yeah so beggarly do anything oh like overproduced Godley and just two dollars the place my thing is really getting being the you continue to challenge yourself to make yourself better what would you consider that your secret sauce to your success or do you have print versions of of the story okay no so definitely you know he has some people unbalancing go there's different recordings of it and laugh and then either changed throughout again like those little details that they matter yeah for sure L. The construction matters I I was never want to really to get sucked into a project that will take me days because I can't I can't afford it I have to you know so how do you stop that because I took that title on relax it is a challenging it's something that I wanNA perfect and I'm after after something yeah and I and one I'm doing it I go well let's talk about the name or the names naturally good came from Mr Stagger Stagger Lee was secondly was the that has no it's still it's still love what you do but I'm loving what I do then at a certain point I look around and go man I've been doing this for ten hours straight Oh and I worked at I helped a friend of mine at a record store in in Los Angeles and I'd like music a lot really I always thought it was a cold name yeah gone bad got started leaving all right as we kinda talked about you will you mentioned who I was like Oh that's a cool name would be calling for it for Jean Company when day that's what I had in mind okay okay no getting aprons and mine but be being that it was at a it's something that I do better Brian I try just that's another that's really what keeps me motivated yes the pursuit this is all right pursuit of the catching the Unicorn of perfection is not gonNa ever catch it What how and I did the Liberty Fair in Vegas Trade Show in Vegas last month and I met a one of my I guess I started with aprons I see I see a chance for growth kind of urged him I've got a skill up I've gotta find Figuring out the direction of stagger Lee goods where I was on the go with it you know I've had big help with my wife Lauren Bingham she's not okay on on on Youtube and he's a bar manager at a A restaurant called the colds French dip in downtown.

Ep. 94 | Austin Theriault (RWP)
"Everyone welcome back to the racing writers podcast always your host Kelly and we are brought to you by raising the official die cast of NASCAR be sure to check out line racing dot com for all the newest die-cast race when cars and special deals and if you're ever in concord North Karen what she said refresh my memory it you said it's been humbling and I'm like okay this is a podcast with Austin because you've had quite the ups and downs I thought he was really open and honest and again we covered a lot and I was thoroughly impressed also with how he just views the sport and taking his career into his own hands trying to here run some cup races and get this opportunity there's been humbling because if you put it in perspective the ups and downs sort of make you realize that every opportunity that you do times just situations come up or circumstances come up that you you can never control but I guess I've always been able to try to turn it back around and even though the biggest thing that stood out to me when I said Hey Austin I'd love to have you on the podcast like that's what happened to me before this year before July and when I made my my cup debut it's like it was really starting to wear on me because it had been a while since I had things yeah I just tried to put all that in perspective and makes me really thankful for where I'm at now I think that was another part of what you had said which was you didn't even though like the negatives there and you just WanNa like why can't catch a break or why can't I do this that's usually a sign that something's going to happen and sundown's of trying to make a career Nascar he's also had of course that memorable accident in Las Vegas for those of you who remember from two thousand fifteen where he injured his back to figure out how of course to get opportunities in Nascar so let's get to it this is my conversation with Austin -Tario on the racing writers podcast uh things on Youtube because I feel like that's the fuel that keeps you going and so I try to turn it turn it around and and think about you know my career and how sounds of career but to start with these opportunities these cup series opportunistic explain in what way that it has been humbling just to be able to come out to cover with our guest Austin -Tario Austin has been running some Nascar Cup series races this year with rick ware racing he's also made one start in the truck series and it you have to be thankful for because you never know when your last opportunity is GonNa come and I'm not I'm I'm not just trying to say that like I listened to a lot of inspirational quotes and back and was out of the truck for quite a while at the time he was racing for Brad Kozlowski racing so again we're going to cover a lot of ground in this podcast I wanNA get right to it Austin was a wonderful guest then he's got quite the story Austin's only made twenty four starts across all three NASCAR national series but a lot has happened in that time so we cover a lot of ground in this podcast talking about the and of course you're like yeah let's do it and it was after we had just talked in the Richmond bullpen and I said hey what's it like just having these cup opportunities and that sparked my idea because oh I view the challenges and stuff and like I said there's been there's been a lot and a lot of other drivers have had challenges I'm not saying the only one but you know you always get a look at yourself it was going to happen you know just this opportunity in general can you elaborate on what you were just saying there about you didn't have anything maybe prospects were down a little bit and then how exactly anything at all coming off of a championship in two thousand seventeen in Arca which is a you know arc has got a lot of history there as far as the champions that have gone on too big okay this deal with with Rick and Lisa wear came together because you've been running now a few races you're them so how did it go from thinking you had nothing to suddenly you've had a bunch of opportunity often I've had some awesome opportunities to raise for some good teams and you know been very thankful for that and sometimes it's worked out in my favor and sometimes it hasn't hard to make my cup debut because I was looking at the landscape and seeing how much the industry is going to change over the next couple years new car in two thousand twenty one and you know some of the he's over here a cup has been been on my radar for awhile I mean for a long time but if you if you really look at it as as far as it's really been a year that I been pushing so fast I know rick I know Jay premium and you know some of the guys over at at the double zero star calm but it's not always about who you know it's you know comes down to sponsorship it comes down to business it comes down to being at the right place the right time in all the stuff that I've learned for our offers are getting to the end of their career possibly so I'm like I've got to try to get to the cup series I don't exactly know how to do it I know I know some people I know you know archie the end of the day but you know as far as rick is concerned I think I met Rick in Twenty fifteen or twenty sixteen Iran expedia race I ran a few contact with him and like I said over the past year it just came down to some of the sponsors that I've really been trying to get involved in racing career since I moved to North Carolina Eighteen I'm twenty five now you know those are the little thing I've realized you don't just step into something you always have to plan and it's almost like a game at it's time to make that jump it's it's a big jump you know but if you never do it you look back in impossibly regret it so I don't Wanna I don't WanNa live with any regrets I wanna do it see what happens and here we are I mean we've taken that first initial race in July and like I think that was at that time that's all we're going to do and then we just kept building ran Pocono ran Michigan Ran Richman and in here we are Talladega and there's some good positive momentum being built I feel vinnie races and rick was involved in some way I I don't know remember fee if you own the car but it was like through Jeff spreaker and stuff it's kind of a complicated story but I've stayed in take me back to New Hampshire to Loudon when you made your debut home track also you're making your debut your cup series debut what was it like involved in Nascar they saw the possibilities but they really wanted to be in the cup series and so when I put all that together like I wanted to be in the cup series they want to be in the cup series and we're like it's time AAC onstage at driver Intros when you know you're about to be introduced for a cup series race do you remember maybe how you felt or what that was like waiting on stage to be introduced just in front of everybody as a as a part of the Cup series race that day I remember somewhat I mean I would go through moments of like I'm feeling confident I'm good and then stick into the ground and it just sorta sunk in at that moment and the home crowds always good you know the applause was good and everything like that and I appreciate that better name recognition but I think it was it was awesome for people to see that yeah the last person from Maine to raise the cup series was ricky craven back in Oh four I think some crazy the Hampshire when I was growing up a race late models air I raised them Vermont I raced in New York I raised some actually in some parts of Canada obviously in Maine so I have a little oh through moments where I'd be like I'm really nervous right now I think when the jets flew over it was hot I think I remember that day would it was it was pretty hot and like my shoes were almost it was just great to see a little bit more on your question it wasn't long ago where I was standing as a fan or sitting geico four it's been a while so Lugano has represents a lot of people up there there's there's a few other drivers that come from New England but started in four cylinder Mustang at my local track so like I said I just seeing that little kid up in the grandstands and then all of a sudden Martin I think won his last cup race I I can't remember if that was his last but one of his last cup races around two thousand nine when he was making that playoff run has a fan in the grandstands we used to sit like halfway up or maybe three quarters of the way up new start finish line and I used to go there and watch I was there when Yup and that was a big deal and I had just started racing like hobby stock or just you know amateur racing at that point like a lot of drivers start either go-carts or whatever because I'm if people that are listening don't know I grew up like seven hours from loudon but like New Hampshire and Maine border each other so people know who I was because I raised member of that day and it sounds like you'll have that will stick with you I it will stick with me and there's a lot of adrenaline and nervousness and all that that sometimes can cloud seventh year expire on us so let's go back to coming into the twenty nineteen season what did you start out with in terms love your prospects what were your prospects for this year did you even have any did you have anything that you knew you would be able to run this year before again here we are in October young man is now being introduced for the cup race that's the sort emotion I was I was going off of yeah and that's exactly what my question was just you know what will you how you're thinking but in general we will look back years and I had family there which is exciting and family and friends and that was exciting for them hopefully but winning that Arca championship I think solidified for me that I can do this you know we won seven seven out of twenty races and had a pretty dominant year as far as needs to win so that was you know Arca series truck series those those sorts of situations where where you can go out and win and prove that you can drive and so you've made some cup starts and done some other things but to start the year did you have like a plan or anything laid out of what you thought you were going to be doing this year well they were points and wins and everything we accomplished everything we went on all the different tracks so at least I knew that I can compete at a high level so now it's time to put myself in a position so going into twenty and I guess I didn't understand where he was coming from a few years ago because I was really focused on you know being as competitive as possible so if I was going to get in a car I wanted to have a chat is really super focused on doing the best I could and we had a good run going we had some mechanical issues but I think we would have finished top thirty definitely we were twenty eighth or twenty the f. been telling you you you really should focus on the cup series and like we started at the the show here with and I nineteen I didn't know exactly what it was going to look like but I just knew look I'm super focused on cup and is not that I would say no of something else came up super focused on Cup I think a lot of times drivers well I've been there too I say we we we make the mistake of like just being like I'll do anything you know putting food on the table for me to be able to stay involved in racing there's a lot of drivers that can say that but there's also not a lot of drivers that can say that too so then doesn't it make sense to try to do something else and so that's why I'm saying I I tried that path of of winning championships and was successful at it but just conversations like I had a conversation with Archie and he owns go fast racing correlate Georgia is forum and Archie from Maine as well so we talk a lot eighty you just need a re reevaluate every so often is this path you're on working for you if it's not working for you and I think you I think that's a smart mentality but also if it's not working for you and you just going to do anything you really need to focus on where do you WanNa beat you WanNa you know being cup you WanNa be deals happen I've had people represent me but now I'm in the position where I think I understand enough of the sport I don't know everything but I understand enough of the sport to where the handle most everything on my own knows far sponsorships meeting with teams I actually own half of a driver management company that I recently bought into in the beginning of like I said in two thousand eighteen for people look at twenty eighteen and they may say well what did Austin doing twenty eighteen while I was driver coaching I was spotting I was put I've been on multiple sides of the table if that's what if that's what you WANNA say I've I've had to work for other drivers I've had to drive myself I've had to handle the business action and then we made it happen in July so I took some time but you made it happen in general how hands on are you when it comes to making your for my own I was in a position I didn't know I was going to have a cup opportunity so I was once again like I said two thousand eighteen hours driver coaching spotting and then going into twenty nineteen out of it and so going into two thousand nineteen I just committed myself to try to find opportunities in the cup series in finally starting to get some is car career there's been a lot of ups and downs one of the biggest ones that's gonNA come to mind is the truck series good and bad between nineteen so we work primarily with drivers that are coming up through right so I've had to learn very quickly even before that because I've handled so much bad blimp on the radar well it it's really hard to say I feel like there's no there's no points in saying it didn't change my career because all I think about his motor sports I'm one of those people that really really just so involved that there's not much else I do on the side except think of gene diversified even more so I I got in the driver management side so I do I do all that stuff right now and also handle my own my own career so water sports you wear all the hats okay so I wanna go through a couple things Austin of course because again talking about your next things immediately like did that have that did that accident have any after effects on your career or was it just a off and look at it from way far out the next year was one of those years where I was sort of bouncing around a lot and you know rate went back to race can as you want to dig deeper and then if that wouldn't have happened I wouldn't probably gone back to run ARCA I wouldn't have won the Arca championship so it's just one of those kind of disappointing circumstances that is out of your control in in a lot of ways but it makes you want to work harder you were part time with Brad Keselowski when he had his truck team how much though did that accident change may be the course of your career that it changed the today so I I spent some time thinking about it but I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it so just really difficult question to answer right you know we'd have to come up with all these excuses and stuff I'm not a big excuses guy but if I look at it from you know separate myself I'm sorry can get the bad out of the way let's go back to Vegas with that wreck fractures or compressions all right so how much did vague did that accident at the time taken some more time there but like I said if you think about it that way I think about it the other way I think about like how much it may be healthy mentally turn the page move forward sooner you needed something again almost like you said turn the page almost like closure closed that book move on that's done and over with I need something else to focus on kind of maybe put myself in harm's way I don't know for sure and then I'm still looking for a ride or I'm still struggling I'm still bouncing around so maybe I should of just a few things from the accident that stood out of course you did come back I think you came back home said you finish the year how important was it or how determined away it's just hard to say but but I I will say I came back stronger on an and I at least try to come back stronger and here we move to yourself I can still do this that point it's a lot of mental a lot of overcoming you still be maybe in pain but that's all physical yeah I wrote down two things from stories that I had written back then speaking with you and speaking with Brad one of the things that you had said Zaidi or your doubt it's still there a little bit but you just turn it off and you go and execute the race to the best you can improve yourself like you said that maybe I would have done one of those big bounces where I would have you know kept kept going to the end of the two thousand fifteen had some good runs and then you know fell on my face situations like that do you remember maybe what the humor was or remembered the pain of it all and and how quickly I'm assuming you quickly new you're in trouble certainly altered the path whether you know it or not definitely altered the path it's just a matter of m m I realistically farther today than I would have been it's hard to say word because if you get stuck in that Rut I would've went all the way to like February Daytona maybe in that kind of like negative head space jealous to go down to the in as a driver if you're successful I feel like a lot of the drivers have this sort of switching their head were you can turn off you can you can turn off your fear or urine then you know kiss lousy in his team they kept moving forward they brought another driver and that driver of moved forward and moved on in his career so there's only so low you can go I think until you have to start bringing some humor into its I don't know what what what you remember but that's that's all I remember were you to get back in the truck before the end of the year at least one more time like when you get injured driver injured excuse me gets injured how determined were you to come back and is the crew had just gotten back to the casino like after the race and they were kind of distraught they didn't know too much of what was happening so here I come in like on pain medication and I'm in like you mentioned after the crash I was on I don't know what they gave me for pain this was like a few hours later after I left the hospital in the CNET kind of proved to Nascar in general that we did not know as much about safety as we thought I know I think there was something that went on where your your helmet and your Hans device maybe I'm like really struggling I think to myself like wanted I do that do that did I do that so they fell okay like I was okay and I'm I'm GonNa be I'm GonNa make it or was it like racing I'm like walking really slow and kind of side aside and and in pain so I walk up and I see some of my crew guys and they're playing like Black Jackson the only make humor out of like really a bad situation because if you otherwise you're just gonna get even more depressed or more down or like you can do it and I think there's probably some of that that went on a homestead I maybe looking back at it I probably rushed that more than I should have for what it paid off in the Ed was when the accident happened obviously you're in tremendous pain but you're almost trying to like make light of it at the time like humor comes out and I white out I stayed in flew home later but like I did some weird things I don't I don't understand why I did it like I woke up early went down to see them like walking around barely move in things were Mac maximized because after after a you know the crash in Vegas I'm pretty sure they re evaluated all all of the tracks in their safer barrier yeah the second thing and then I wanna move on of course is the safety aspect of it Brad was very outspoken at the time and saying that your eyes something so I I was talking to them for ten to fifteen minutes and then the next day I woke up early and went to see them before they left because I didn't fly on the well well I I don't remember but there's a few things I think humor comes out when people are afraid or people are scared or people are in pain was it the Hans had broken or didn't stand up to the pressure whatever it was did that accident did you ever follow up with Nascar find a place that there's no safer barrier so what you know whether anybody will admit that this was the reason didn't Kyle they give you from the hospital but yeah on the on the good stuff but sometimes you can you can only you can see this is something else and those those are the couple of funny moments looking back they also joke the like you may not remember but you were acting kind of funny and stuff and you do that when you're on that stuff afterwards where there are discussions afterwards of what happened in that accident did anything change in the truck series or just in general going forward after that I think they study the they look at the outcome they make changes they study they look at the outcome they figure out okay we're maximized on our stuff here but your point being I don't think that inside the car that might not or the failed so really it woke I think it woke people up to say we've come a long way but there's no by no means as ask are really took a hard look at it there's a lot of things that I'm not aware of too they do apparently they do a lot of studying that they don't tell people about which is good you know there's if the people still ask you about do you get asked about the accident quite often or has it coming on a doug it s by people that no motor sports for like you're you're being negative but what if you don't Wanna live in the what if they're so all right let's move on from that so you mentioned you had a part time deal with Brad that year and then read it leaves and seventeen and then briscoe comes in seventeen so difficult to say whether all of that would have transpired did that alter your plans with Brad like did you guys have anything for the following year were you working on anything I guess this still Kinda ties into the whole accident it was at a safe combat-ready share that was that was not so so to to wrecks in in the same year where they were not covered by the safer barrier and maybe there is some stuff that accident aside was that always going to be like when we were phrase this accident aside you come back you run homestead I said no because because I think I was afraid to admit it you know you don't want to admit like oh you know you don't want to present it sounds it sounds what do you think this you think that situation did really fundamentally change your career path and I I've been saying yes and at the beginning I probably would externally or did you know some there were some discussions but also around that time to they had some replacement drivers come in and I I was one thing I did I did laugh about it at the you know at least a year later I said wow I rushed myself really you go into twenty sixteen were you already kind of going to be out of a ride so to speak going into twenty sixteen how the accident not happen or again like three four five races for me to figure out the trucks get comfortable with the team. The communication people take that for granted part time opportunities I think are some of the hardest opportunities time year so it wasn't like a wise an awesome at this race all he's racing part time so the people that do know they asked me and I for people that are casual fans they may not even know that I was they might have known that I raised with his lousy but like they forget what happened because I was racing here's and where they were located because where I happened hit was the right at the end there was no sexual if you look at all the tracks now I'm pretty sure it'd be hard he races was fulltime I think it was full time in two thousand sixteen and then and then him or tyler rettig was there again for drivers because you come into a new situation and there's so much new the car the team the people the tracks so like that was the time of year for me to shine up because I I really believe drivers need to step up for themselves if they have questions like this whole thing of spoon feeding like if an owner is going to spoon feed guys have a lot of experience Brad was was the type of owner that he wasn't in your face overly involved which provided a good opportunity for you this is over like you've got to keep moving forward I think Brad's point is still don't know what we think we know yeah so what besides me asking you now is that an event in your life on the opportunity of Brad as your owner did you get to pick his brain like what do you remember about driving and running for Brad and being able to kind of if I would have been like if I would have had a good stretch races those the other thing that came like I felt like I was finally coming into my own it took line and we should have stopped by the Lionel store in Concord Mills Mall so welcome to episode ninety four appreciate you tuning back in I'm going to give you a long opening description this week because we've got a lot league tracks for me to kind of prove that I belong there and I didn't have the opportunity to do that so it was kind of a bummer but running for Brad did you have a chance to seize the opportunity to work with somebody of his calibre well early in the year we had some some cup drivers that were running the twenty nine zero so blaney Lugano Sit much under the Brad Kozlowski learning because you just mentioned it part time makes it a little bit difficult because you're not there all the time you're not with the same group guys all the time but did you get to lean and I try to remember Brad if he raised but the those were actually some of the better learning experiences for me because you can get on the radio you can hear the communication these these we get asked several times a year and in interviews and people on People WanNa follow up how I'm doing and and all that stuff and see that and I actually do that get the question the Brian Kozlowski and then Lugano then had Austin Syndrome consensual cinder all's singer extra friend of mine in the next year he goes in Cobb broke his foot that year two thousand fifteen at Daytona are you talking about the reckoning yeah that was the biggest like we had qualified good done really well in practice and then obviously that stuff happened the race now I think we had some we had some good tracks coming up it's a mile and a half we had some short tracks drivers that are trying to come up through what's going to happen when the owner's not their spoon spoon feeding are you going to be able to feed yourself so that's the analogy I have with Brad is Brad wanted drivers I think that could be accountable for themselves and if they had a question they texted him or call him or asked to go to lunch he wasn't going to be to be able to take advantage of this opportunity but looking back at it I just didn't have the experience so like I said I had to grow up very quick I was eighteen or nineteen at that time a learned a lot I learned this is real like this is if this is an easy a lot of people say oh I could just I could jump in that stuff and win okay really go ahead if you think that easy go ahead the point being that sometimes we move forward when we're not quite ready in in our careers and so that can be a good thing go to the different tracks and I would have probably been more prepared in been able to to execute and be able to take advantage of the opportunity because it was only three races so that year I still I still use it for myself and I try to explain it to people that way if if you really WanNa be successful you've just got to advocate for yourself plan like having an agenda for what you WanNa talk about don't don't just like do something halfway because I think that shows a lot about character too so that was a character learning experience for me and did you feel ready at that time when you got those races walk thought I thought I thought show but but you were if you really want to be successful when you really wanna be running against Harvey or people like Harvick the ones the ones that are championship caliber you've got to figure this out you've got to be oh you know I went to a short track went to a mile and a half and then went to louden which is my home track so it was humbling because people write about you and your your junior oh I think a lot of things in general but even the the the next generation of drivers that are coming up through I really tell them look I know it seems like it may be the case now but how impactful if any was that being associated with junior will those a year before and I was coming out of racing super late models Kinda like if you look at it test extremely stuff that was a huge step for me speaking honestly now looking at it but once again separating myself and kind of looking at it from way far out those people are not gonna come to you you you still do that now has that stayed with you throughout your career yeah I'm I'm that's part of what frustrates me sometimes about the bad thing I don't know it's tough to look back maybe I would have tried to get more experience maybe maybe I shook marketplaces like you know feel the cars feel that the you'll hammer came from that same lineage super late models running some of the big races winchester four hundred snowball Derby an IED running race in two thousand fourteen yeah I mean I don't have the experience I have now if if I if I could go back even if I could have delayed by year and ran you know coming off of an arcade own advocate that people can help you and people wanNA help you they want to see it come from you so formula the questions questions are okay think about it in your head have a motorsports driver and you drive for Dale Earnhardt Jr. but you know I was really hard on myself those were some difficult races because I was really really hard on myself and I'm thinking I should be able to do better than this like it that's interesting so not only were you associated with Brad you go you made I think what a couple obscenity starts for Dale Jr. you got to be aligned with junior motorsports there for a bit one thousand entering motorsports I start at Michigan I won so like we're all high and confidence and stuff and you jump in what would be really good some of the win I could've gone back to a few more tracks I coulda gone gone back in and fell what it's like to wrestle these big heavy Colin taxicabs because they're way different than any any sort of model you're gonNA drive I think I could have you know not only improve my finishing position but I could have communicated better I I could have I just would have been is resources that are there including him but you gotta you gotTa figure it out for yourself you have to take it upon yourself to ask the questions go to those people use that you have to you really figured out so you just gotTa do what you can when you have stuff like what happened in Vegas happened in your career I don't think you'd take things as able to take more advantage of the opportunity but you can't you can't always look back at it you just have to move forward so I know now that even if you're not ready for an opportunity sometimes you just get a time that's all I've got or were you hoping it could lead to something where there are other opportunities maybe turn it into something or did you know this is it I only get three is not that you don't take it as seriously you just goes all in perspectives you gain perspective perspective yeah those three races with junior motor sports did you know at the the fact that we were affiliated together we felt like there was going to be a lot of momentum that came from that and we had some conversations that were good it's just nothing ever happens so those three well it looked like it was only going to be three races what we were really banking on with some of the conversations we were having sponsors that you know the junior motorsports name evaluate things at a certain point let me jump to that because I did want to ask about money because we all know a lot of what happens in the sport nowadays it's all about money funding pretend like you are and just do the best you can because eventually you will be and that you know I don't call it a failure but that inadequacy that you had going into it you'll see uses could have grown those three races could become six could become eight but the partnership in the sponsorship stuff didn't didn't end up coming through so we had you know we had turn it into a strength somehow and I I use it as determination like since it doesn't come easy for a lot of people doesn't come easy if a lot of what I think about I'm here at the racetrack but when I leave the race tracking get home on Monday I'm looking at following up a people and a lot of the conversation say and what I've tried to do and what I've tried to continue to do is take the fact that that's lacking meaning meeting the funding or the money and try to you don't have some sort of background or you don't have a connection to you know a family company or whatever but I don't know it's it's it's all that we think about it's all it's we have a really good a really really good it's just timing sometimes timing companies in their budget cycles like right now we're kind of leaving budget cycles and so if you really partners is it accurate to say you've been affected as much as anybody when it comes to the fact that this sport more so than ever is all about the checkbook at safety it's you've got a you've gotta bring value to them if they're going to pay you to race or if they're gonNA pay you set up some sort of marketing program with with and is not just person to billboard and so the person to billboard may have a better number they may reach you know ten million people but NASCAR and you're the center of it you're the centerpiece here like the quarterback because without you they're not gonNA get any return on their investment how to how to have conversations people had sell yourself how to bring value to to the conversation because I think if it's if it's come easy for you then you don't go out of your way to bring value to a sponsor like sponsors GonNa stay with you and and you don't have some sort of family relationship or connection somebody's brand or you see a company the fact that you saw it doesn't necessarily mean you're going to do anything with that so I think I think you WanNa be serious with a company you're gonNA follow up with them next July or August for twenty twenty one so it's like Os chasing your tail but I've also learned a lot about like how I explain this to people and I feel like I'm kind of going off your question and I it's my theory on marketing because I don't have a marketing degree but I get into these times and I include myself in say that I'm a marketing person because I I'm involved in marketing as a driver you have to be you have to try to explain to people that the difference with Nascar and the difference racing the difference that the difference with a driver involved is that you turn u-turn the fact that somebody saw it's more personal there's more emotion so even if even if we in and I beg to differ with it but even if we do reach less people I feel like a higher price mm-hmm conversations sometimes they turned into into debates or arguments so if you have if if you ever been writing down the side of a highway and you see on their investment and it becomes more of a partnership back and forth you promote them they promote you you guys work together on different promotional messages like funny the brand so those are the two conversations or the two sides of the coin when you go into a meeting are you going to be dealing with somebody that things on social media giveaways you know bringing customers to the racetrack whereas on the other side of the coin it's just numbers in I don't like working all your brand or somebody saw your message and you can what we can try to do is we can try to we can try to tap into the emotion we can try to tell the story it it becomes person to person do need to try to seek out because they understand they understand what Nascar can do for them or they understand where we can come in and can weaken you know bring return in that arena because peop- people can argue with me I just I just there's the lack of emotion there I've never seen success S. I'm never seen success there so I try to stay on the side of working with people that Kinda see marketing as far as the motions in the in the connections you can make with fans and oh no meeting with a sponsor and have a CMO or have a have a marketing head of marketing sit there and say our brand has to be tied to emotion in has to be tied to people telling a story because if you can if you can connect with a company that views marketing like that I feel like that's going to be more successful myself of all these people behind you that worked really hard to make it all possible and I get a Lotta join this but we were really the underdog team I feel energy people are going to be loyal to us or are going to be paying attention are gonNA feel some sort of emotional connection to to to to the story of the message that we're trying to communicate the like if people knew the budget and the and the sponsorship that we had to work on that whole year compared to compared to some of the other teams very very small percentage of of those people are going to do something about it whereas as driver or as a as a team or some of the things that we can do and the reason that they're actually going to go out either by the product of the service or ask questions or engage with you so does that make a little sensor it's I think you're another example only looks at the numbers so if you if I if you can show them a big number they don't really care about the message or the or the emotion or you're GonNa then you're than than those are the companies that I've been aligned with my whole career and those are the companies I tried to seek out and I feel like as drivers those of the companies we Austin of how being a race car driver is more than just holding the steering wheel again going back to that you have to wear many hats and with you when you're whether you're talking about marketing I guess answer your question it's something that you'll always be able to look back on and and they'll always be able to look back on really really bad we ended up we we finished second Kentucky we weren't really that good but we were just race smarter they've never they never they never took pictures for after winning a championship so like I said we just had extra gas in the tank and not only did we outsmart them you know we were smarter with money we were smarter on the racetrack we were smarter and a lot of ways we work harder in my competitors were awesome friends and I'm not by any means saying that they didn't work hard I'm just saying like that was our year and that was a that was like are championship to lose because I was determined after all the ups and downs that we talked about shredder himself I think had never had never won a Arca chain the arteries are last year it was maybe the year before but they hung our picture on the wall or hung my picture on the wall in front of all the past champions and stuff and that was that was really humbling it reminded me of my championship in what we were able to accomplish because like I said I get the glory of being a picture on the wall but then you know against teams that are out there that people think are guarantees you know the dominant teams you guys go out there and you just do it your way and you still come out on top that's gotta be the threat and you go out you do it the way you just mentioned we had to be smart with our money we had to be smart with our equipment all this stuff does it make it more satisfying when you come out on top driving or whatever may be with your career it's almost like okay you don't have a degree in any of that stuff but you've had a lot of hands on experience real world real world experience forget hey he's champ I was driving in this morning and I saw the sign for for is Talladega Hall of fame or whatever and think last year when I was here for to that end when you talk about how almost are championship to lose your looked at as the underdogs may be folks didn't take you guys as you know a tie inch of as an owner he did but it was it was it was he was involved with another team as a a CO owner so but this is the first time that he would have won a championship as a just a underdog team won at Daytona. I don't think we we expect to win here but once again you do what you can and our team was was a was a bunch of rookies and a bunch of veterans working together like we had some young kids let some older older gentlemen that when you take that into consideration how how satisfying or how humbling and appreciative of in traders Yet those his team than Donnie Richardson had been with schrader for many years worked with different drivers. There's a few other guys on the team that Eh it's it's just a cool story and what what maybe I should write a book about it someday but a lot of cool events happen that year is it winning at Daytona satisfying You never say never but like I said for us for us a win is just to finish in front of the people that were running against fifteen point this here and if you compare it to like somebody else that's true veteran that's been racing full time for the for five six years and we ended up winning so and there was also racists where I felt like we were dominant short short tracks were pretty dominant at but once we once we went to these tracks oh been more satisfying than normal it yeah it is definitely there's there's a few races where we didn't have the fastest cars I'm trying to think like Michigan we qualified re extended mile and a half were Arrow and budget and wind tunnel time comes in we we struggled a little bit but once again like the fact that

Fifteen sixteen millionaire success S. habits and how one simple change can lead to business success by Steve Chew of my wife quit her job dot com. And I'm just all your personal narrator reading to you every day including holidays. I'm featuring a more rare author for this show. Steve Usually writes about business. Miss One technically is about that too but it's a good fit for Oh l. d. so with that let's get right to it as we optimize your life millionaire success habits and how one simple change can lead to business. Success US by Steve. Two of my wife quit her job. Dot Com if you've been a reader of my wife quit her job dot com. Since the early days he probably remembered that it used to refer to myself as Elisi piece of now depending on the person laziness can have different definitions to some people being lazy sitting around and watching television all day to some people. Oh being laziest staying in bed and not getting up until the afternoon to some people being lazy wanting to make a change in not doing anything about it but to me. Laziness is participating participating in activities that have absolutely zero long-term value as part of running this blog. Complete strangers often asked me for life changing advice and I always say if you WANNA make positive changes to your life. You have to avoid being lazy. If you're unsatisfied with the status quo thing about how you spend your time because where you spend it will ultimately Camilli determine where you'll end up. Here's one among many millionaire. Success Habits that have adopted to achieve business success. My story when I graduated -aduated from college I fell into this habitual routine where I would come home from work. Eat Dinner Watch television or play video games go to bed and then repeat the cycle day in and day out but the funny thing is that I didn't feel stagnant at all in fact I was actually pretty darn happy with my life. I had spending cash a good job friends and all the video games games I play. I know responsibilities whatsoever and I love the fact that I was not obligated to do anything in fact I spent most of my early twenties playing video games and I could do it all day. A enough feel bad about it. One of my favorite games of all time was called civilization and I probably spent well over six hours a day playing at my peak on weekdays weekends were different story undisturbed I could easily sit in front of my computer for eighteen hours straight as an addict and sometimes I even forgot to eat drink. What's fun might be holding you back in fact if I could do things all over again I would have loved to reclaim all of those lost hours? Because playing video games had no oh beneficial impact on my life. I didn't learn anything. I didn't gain any knowledge that would further my career and become a better person because of it and reality it had the opposite effect. I became antisocial. The computer became my best friend and the meaningless accolades the game presented me were worthless in real life. The long term effects of time-wasting habits we all have our habits and we all tend to gravitate towards leisurely activities is easier waste time and be lazy but what would have happened to my life. I continued my all day game. Playing ways are probably would have found my wife. I definitely not have started any my businesses and are probably would not have had the breadth of knowledge that I have today while fun to be. Entertained is really easy to get stuck in a Rut when he routinely participate in activities that don't have long term benefits activities. These were. You aren't learning while you might think that a few hours here in a few hours. There's not that big of a deal. It all adds up over time. Think about it this way. A few hours wasted Lisa today for fifteen years as to well over ten thousand hours and if you believe in Malcolm glad wells ten thousand our hypothesis you could have completely mastered a skill during during that time the thing you need to realize that even small changes to your lifestyle can have a profound effect on your long term success. Do you want to look back on your life knowing that you wasted wasted all your time playing meaningless games or watching TV or would you rather look back and appreciate all of the knowledge. You've gained what if unfortunately ask myself this question all the time. What if I spent all that time reading business books instead? What if I learn a new computer language or studied the stock market? What if I became interested in real estate investing during the boom? What if I started my own business back when I was younger maybe my life would have been as relaxing? Maybe it wouldn't have been as leisurely really but I would have become a much better educated person sooner rather than later and who knows today I could have been a billionaire by now but as it stands I wasted uh good portion of my time on low benefit and low value activities that added very little to my life in fact I feel lucky does able to turn things around by making certain changes is to my habits making the most of my time today I make a lot better use of my time I waste much less of it. Don't get me wrong are still watch television. And I still play occasional video game but the difference is I now set aside some time every day to learn a new skill or trade. If you ask my wife she'll probably tell you that I've taken this new habit to an extreme for example. Instead of reading fiction or short stories I pretty much only read business books and technical manuals now on my last vacation and took a book along with me. Call Ajay Query Inaction Great Book. By the way if you WANNA learn more about web development is it of serving entertainment and gossip websites I now focus on e commerce business and Personal Development Veldman websites. These habits are now so ingrained into my routine that I don't even think about it anymore. It's now part of my personality. I'm also a lot more selective about what I do with my leisure time. My kids and family come first and I spend most of my time with them. Also focus a large part of my leisure time. Strengthening friendships informing new ones for the past decade of had no regrets. And it's nice to look back to see how much I've learned gradually over a long period of time. Small changes can have a big impact. So what's my point. Leisure time is great but it needs to be balanced with learning. Very few people are willing to change because they want to be able to see results right away eh but unfortunately life does not work that way. If you want to change your life you I have to change your habits. When it comes to changing your habits you have to look at things with a multi year a year time horizon? Even the smallest change today can have a profound effect on your future. Many years down the line. It doesn't take much to set aside an hour everyday to expand upon your knowledge and learn something new for every activity that you participate in decide whether that activity will benefit you in the long run. or whether it's just a waste of time and the sooner you make that small change the sooner you will reap the rewards you just listen to the polls was titled Millionaire Success Habits and how one simple change can lead to business.

E017(S) Seasons (Pseudo-Peace)
"Welcome to coffee with a couple of cure where we share practical tips for your relationship before you finish your first Cup. Here's Jay and Laurie pipe. Hi, everybody. Welcome to another episode today. We're going to be talking about seasons. And we're not talking about the normal seasons. You might think of in certain circles seasons mean seasons of life. You know that we have big seasons of life. Like when kids are small big seasons of life like during the honeymoon period. Retirement can be season. We're talking about something different. Yeah. Yeah. In a way, these are sometimes shorter seasons. When. Yeah. You know, your relationship is going through a rough patch when not even really your relationships going through a rough patch. Life has brought you to a rough patch and. That could be what happened us three years ago four years ago when I lost my job. You know, a season of transition and. And those seasons are in Evansville. You know, I wanna say if you came on this podcast looking for two people that are always smiling faces and always super upbeat and were not those people, but we do have a great relationship because we know how to whether these seasons, we know they're going to come. And we know that the other person isn't the enemy and isn't their fault that we're going through a hard time. We just our life is going to do that. And if we can't or won't pull together and say, you know, what I get it. You're going through a rough patch. Whether it's some something going on with your family or with your job, I'm gonna stand right here next to you. And I'm gonna say how can I support you? What can I do to help because your relationship is not always going to be sunshine? You know that the only place that the sun shines all the time. Is the desert? There's not a lot of life there. There's a lot of life where their seasons rain their seasons. A son. There's winter there's it's not always the best weather, but those changing seasons produce beautiful flowers produce strong trees produce a healthy environment. That reminds when we went to Ireland fears ago it rained there every single day every single day at rain, but the green I think that Swick gave it the different shades of green and beautiful flowers and everything just looked healthy. So Jay's correct that the rain does bring health brings life in a way that. I don't know huge storms that come through. Yeah. They can water the ground, and they can maybe get things reset things. But. The daily storms of life will will give us life. It can make us more fruitful in a way that one big huge storm can't. So I'm starting to see the frequent rain we get in our life as maybe a blessing in a way. I don't know. I think it does produce fruit. That's for sure. You know? And I when Lauren I started thinking on this topic. What struck me was the plane that that landed on the Hudson river several years ago, those people still get together. Those people stay in contact with one another because they went through something hard people that go on a cruise ship and go on a big party and have a ton of fun. Those people don't stay in contact with one another because it didn't go through anything together. And it's in the. Testing of our. Nettle metal. Yeah. I think it's it's in the testing it's in the stretching of our abilities that we learn who is in the foxhole with us, and who isn't and I think when our marriage if if in our marriage were not able to weather some changes and some setbacks together, maybe we have on reasonable expectations. Or maybe we really don't know that that life is gonna have ups and downs in having someone to share them with is pretty important. Give you some background. Getting this podcast up and running. Plus revamping, a new website were coming out with. Really like I was good for three weeks. I was like excited, and you know, fueled by dren l'an and Harley was getting any sleep. And then the fourth week it hit and by the end of the fourth week. I was like I just need to rest like bad. Like, I'm on the edge of not really a breakdown. But just I'm on the edge of something really bad. So I knew to rest, and then I made a stupid mistake that you know, put some things at risk. And that it just kind of it didn't break me. But it broke my motivation at definitely broke that adrenalin. Fuel fueling that. I was going through previously Anatole Jay this morning. I said, I know we started the podcast to be this up and fun and kind of place. I said, but number one, that's not really my nature. I mean, I can be fun. And I there's there's a whole other side of me that my my day job clients don't ever see. But Jay, Jay's the phone one. I'm the one that you know, it's like. Let's talk about the real stuff in life. And and you know, I I'm just as comfortable talking about that that a in a party setting, probably even more. So so I told them, I know we started this podcast to be something that is up in upbeat, and that sort of thing, and I know that fits you. Well, I just I don't know how to carry that right now. And I'm not wanted to get on here and be fake and try to be all smiles. And that's just not me at all. So. Jay said that gives me a good idea for podcast, and here, we are kind of the background. But Jason something important in the Hudson thing going through a hard experience. I'll just back up. I thought you know, Joe was gonna go. Oh, darn you know, well, let's let's not record anything until your backup and and happy again. Instead, he said, I'm in this with you. And let's let's shift and move. Let's go a different direction. And so what we're thinking is will start dropping seasons of the of the podcast and for this season. This'll be the last one, and then we'll go into a season that talks more about betrayal because that is our day job. And there might be people out there that need to know more about it. And if you want the fun, and the smiles and all of that there's going to be times for that. But maybe we're not the the people that are are the we're a little talk about the real stuff. Yeah. We'll talk about the real stuff. And honestly, we have a great marriage. Not. Because we're always smiling. And because everything's always perfect in our lives, but because we can get through the hard times. And on that I want to check in with you. At the top of this podcast. You said marriages go through slumps. I felt like I wasn't a slump. You like we're in a slump right now. I don't feel like we're in a slump. I mean, we still you know, it was a setback for you for the next eighteen hours or something. But we still had a good rest of our weekend you've gotten some rest your. A little more deemed. Yeah, you're subdued. But you're coming back to yourself. You're not. And and I don't expect you to go through that kind of thing. And then okay, I'm fine. Everything's good. There's a place to say, you know, what it hurts. It hurts win. Things are not working out the way, I would like them to says she when you worked so hard and certain direction. We have a good relationship because we have been through hard times. Together, we have learned. Who each other truly is where not one person saying? Oh, no. If this isn't a fun moment, if everything isn't happy around family, it's bad and we're not healthy couple. It's you know, what we're a healthy couple because we've learned how to navigate together not with these expectations that life isn't going to be upsetting for one another. So, you know, just think about it that there is a place to have sunshine in a place to have rain. There's a place for, you know, go back to Cleese ESE's. There's there's a season for all of these things. And how we whether those seasons together really proves the strength of our relationship more. So than just how often are we smiling? How many great photographs that we have? And it's not just we go through them together. We do our best to empathize with the other when they're going through it and really try to support them. And I know I said earlier that I'm not like a fakey kind of person. I can definitely tell you. I used to be that's for sure I didn't know how to get to a great relationship. So I faked it, but honestly for me right now that just takes too much effort, and I'd ra- I want something more than something that have that. I have to fake I want something more than the pseudo piece me, and my husband used to have that we were at peace just because we were. Sweeping all of our problems onto the rug because we couldn't talk about him. Now, we can talk about him. Now, we know each other more, we know the other is going to treat us. Well. We know the character of the person the the other person's character is actually grown, and we know this. So we know we can put some weight on that. And that's that's part of it too. Right. Yeah. You know, not that. I feel like every relationship has to be stressful or challenging no we're not to there. We're not supposed to live there. But we're gonna have moments whether. You know, whether we want them or not. If you go to the gym, and you don't. Strengthen your muscles. You have to actually push your muscles past a certain point before they'll get stronger, and in some of our relationships, we feel like I've seen this in other people, and I felt like this in our own relationship that if we go past a certain point, it means where were breaking things or our relationship isn't healthy not that it's getting stronger. Right. I see that is no it's not your broken. It doesn't it doesn't mean. Anything other than you've gotten further down the path of finding the solution for that problem. Right. And so. In in your relationship. There's a place to. Want to get stronger with each other to get stronger, though, will require possibly some hard work possibly some changes in attitudes and growth and growth is not easy growth is challenging sometimes it's on one person. Like for me. I realise this last. Adrenaline season that I had at last three weeks toward the end of it. I realized I can't go and go and go like I need to get sleep. I can't be up, you know, from two to six in the morning and expect to be able to function. I'm not like I used to be it used to be a night owl who could do that and could function well for classes in the morning, or whatever I was going to. Not anymore. Yeah. So. Where I was going was I know I need to adjust. I can't like last night couldn't sleep instead of getting up and doing my usual thing I got up and took some natural sleep aids. And you know, waited for them to kick in versus getting up and doing work, which can I mean, that's just to me is really exciting can fuel me, but they can fuel me in ways that can harm me later. So that's one of judgment. I've had to make I I can't go through another season like that maybe emergency seasons. But I just need to be okay with the pace of things and get things done in the in the morning hours. So I'm not a wreck for my day job. So as we wrap up our season one be thinking about. What seasons has your relationship been through? And are you navigating those seasons? Well. And if it seems like no, I think our relationship is set up to be that it it always needs to be sunny or or something's wrong. Maybe you need to reach out to us. Maybe you need to sign up for one of our groups or get in touch with us for some one on one support it it can be challenging to see this as healthy and not failing. When you relationship goes through challenge. All right guys will thanks for joining us on this this podcast. And we'll see you in season two guys. This was caught after we stopped recording. Glad I could shift for you. I know. We've. Learn we've had to learn to be the couple care without being high on cough syrup all the time. Which is a good thing that that would have gotten expensive probably messed with our system. Well, thanks for shifting.

Ginny clemen meets the Children. He conceived and the people he deceived. Here's a preview of the show. Let me introduce you to a new series from something else. I'm Jenny Klayman. I'm a journalist and for the past few months. I've been trying to find out exactly what happened in the clinic of the renowned Dutch fertility doctor Janka bat after his clinic's doors closed for good. They're whispers that. Some of his patients had been given a kind of help that they didn't ask for as the babies conceived there became adults. They began to ask questions about where they came from.

But before that make sure you subscribe on Apple podcasts spotify or wherever you're listening now in twenty seventeen Joey Huffman and Marsha Vanda Shawn's both received life changing news. I will hear from Jerry. Who found out that he had been conceived at the doctor's clinic. I knew that there was something wrong. Joey was reading the headlines. About the clinic. He'd seen that. It was closed down in two thousand and eight. He'd learned about the rumors the complaints in suspicions about what went on inside it. I was quite emotional. Stressed tried to call my mom for a couple of times. She didn't answer the phone and they're among the news reports. Joey saw a photo of the doctor who ran the clinic. Dr Yan Combat. I knew this is something really absurd. I can't see his face a seed myself. He needs the narrow face smile. Lines those unmistakable teeth at the same smell the same look in the ice so I sent a picture to France and I did not say anything and then they say. Is that you joey. He was the living image of the doctor. Meanwhile MARSHA got a call from an unknown number. I was at work and when I drove home from work. It's like a ten minute drive so it's nothing I missed the call. It was from a social worker film the Dutch organization that helps adopted. And don't children find that Biological Families Masha? Dna had been in its database ever since that TV show. So I went in. My mother always said this was on a Monday because my always rushing cheer for minimum wage. And then my telephone during and I told my mother well. I don't want to answer this call in front of the children. I'M GONNA go outside to to have a more quiet confrontation and I ask telephone and there was this really nice social worker from film and she said well.

We're quite positive like ninety nine percent. Sure that it's looked at Quebec himself. My Shoe for me. That was the immaculate deception.

Jet Altitude Changes Cut Climate Changing Contrails
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Suzanne barred airplanes account for about three percent of the climate altering carbon dioxide emissions. We add to the atmosphere but planes are warming the planet in another way. Cirque up in the sky you probably see at some point an aircraft and behind the aircraft white fluffy streaks on does what we Kulikov trail imperial college. London engineer Mark Staedtler. Contrails are made up of ice crystals that form when aircraft engines emit exhaust that hits the cold air. The ice crystals reflect incoming light from the sun back into space which has a cooling effect on the atmosphere but the contrails also stopped. He coming up from the ground from escaping into space. It's reflected by battles grounds sir. Basil Wilby Affect Staedtler says on balance contrails warm the atmosphere more than they cool it primarily because the cooling effect. Ut reflecting sunlight can only happen during the day when sunshiny whereas the woman in fact you to trapping. A outgoing heat happens all the time. Some contrails can form clouds last for up to eighteen hours during that time they spread out trapping even more heat. This process allows contrails to warm the planet about as much as the carbon dioxide emissions from aircraft but when Staedtler and his team analyze flight data they obtained of airspace. They found that most contrary warming was caused by just two percent of flights and most of those flights originated in the late afternoon because as the sun goes down cooling no longer offset the warming on the warming effect persists into the northern but what if the contrails contribute most to warming could be eliminated such a change could be achieved if aircraft avoided flying in the thin layers of humidity where contrails form by changing the else. You buy a couple of thousand feet up down. It would no longer hold a car. And so what we found in the study was by changing altitude of less than two percent of flights who could actually get rid of just under sixty percent of the woolly affect musical trails. The study is in the Journal. Environmental Science and technology this improved understanding of how to manage contrails presents an opportunity for the aviation industry to reduce its global environmental impact. Think of it as a silver lining in those conrail clouds. Thanks for listening. For Scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Suzanne Bard.
