But Yeah, that came out in Maine in my memoir is out now, and I named the memoir born to fly and You know, it's really something that you need to get a package deal because you can read about how I started. Singing country music at four years old By six years old. I was singing in bars. Watching, you know, drunk people to step in, and he listened to this record, and I'm doing like Carole King song from 1971 and It all makes sense. Well, I can hear your voice doing some of those selections that you that you mentioned. In fact, Funny thing happened about the time Diane warrants could not ask for more came out and no offense to the first tree for the first version. I just didn't think it was right for a male to be singing, and I thought to myself man of someone like Celine Dion or Sara Evans, who get ahold of that song and fix it. Next thing I know you did. And in my opinion, you did fix it. Well, thank you. Yeah, I Turn that song and it was right after the birth of my fine. He was just 21 shocked about it. I was feeling so grateful and that's on just hit me like a ton of bricks and Yeah, I thought you know this. This is my son. No one else's bullet. Did you reach out to Diane Warren about it? Or how did you hear it on the radio and thought Oh, I need to find a way to do that song. I just heard it on the radio and that after I recorded that di amore and reached out to me and And I recorded a few other songs that he had written after my daughter and I have been doing this Instagram live called closet Chaos and We have Ah, special celebrity guest on each time and I just had Edwin McCain on way. We've never talked. We've never met, and it was Just a really, really fun. Conversation with him and his take on the song and why he decided to record it. And now we've decided that we need to do a duet of it. All right. That will be great love that. Yeah, it became became the big wedding song of the year too. I know. Oh, my God. You have no idea. I mean, I've had thousands of people tell me that that was their wedding song. So that makes me very happy. And Diane Warren, I don't know what she can. I don't know that she could write a bad song. I know she is, especially when it comes to these big balance amount. About love. Yeah. Sara Evans Born to fly. What do you include? In the book? I know you've had the ups and downs of Ah country artist. But is it Is it a struggle to lay it all out in black and white? It was not easy. I will tell you that it wasn't something that I took lightly and It took me about four years to write it because I tried to have a co writer to help me because I thought I don't know how to write a book. And so that was not a good idea, and so basically started all over and just kind of rewrote it. Myself. Because I wanted it to be fully 100% in my voice, and you know my life so I decide. I'm too busy to write this book by myself. I'll give them stories. They couldn't go write it. And it just was not sounding like it was my voice. So I completely started over and it was hard, but I'm so glad I did because I talk about You know, I'm really really traumatic things that have happened in my life. Three near death experiences, one that I've never spoken about publicly. Um You know, having ah Weird and perverted manager as a kid who tried to kiss me different things. My parents divorced. And I feel like it walked a good line of having some really like. Oh, my gosh, You know, stories that could make you cry. I've been also very inspirational and about You know, overcoming So much stuff and me being so resilient and that comes from growing up on a farm and You know, having to do really hard, physical labor my whole life.

I Use Spending to Cope With My Bipolar Disorder

"Is with US and Richmond Virginia Hi Kisha. How are you? I'm well, how are you? Good how can we help? WELL THIS IS A. Doctor John Alley but. I have bipolar disorder among some other things and. Through the years, I've made a lot of bad decisions and mistakes when it comes to money. Probably about five or six years ago I had a really bad episode and I got myself into a lot of guts. and. I'm still digging out of it and. Basically. I know the things I need I should be doing I need to be doing to get out of that I. still have problems with the with my fire polar where impulsive. That makes it hard sometimes but are digging. Taking your medication. I not on anything at the moment. I'm kind of coming off of something describes something new. Okay. Can you working with the psychiatrists right now? Yeah I have to find a new one because my insurance just said, they're not going to cover any more So so you got it bipolar one diagnosis and they're saying they're not gonNA cover anymore. They're not gonNA cover the people were saying okay. Hi somebody new. So that's number one number two. Do you have somebody in your life that helps you be accountable? My boyfriend helps them my mother But I? I am single. I live alone. And I'm asking you. I'm asking you like a boyfriend in a mom. Those are often not great at they're good cheerleaders and they're good neighbours. They're not great accountability Partners D of somebody that you trust that would hold your debit card for you. Decide you have cash. Here's what I'm getting and you've got to set up some boundaries in your life and barriers that make it very challenging for you when you're getting a manic state to do something that you're GonNa have to live with for two three, five, six, seven years. That's what I'm getting. What I'm wanting to know what we need to do. So you need to find somebody probably not a boyfriend are you in a church? and not at the moment. Yeah you've got to find whether it's a church and a pastor whether it is a a bipolar group in your community that's got somebody that y'all can meet with regularly maybe it is your mom but somebody in your life that you can sit down and say, I've got these Eileen this way when I'm having a manic state aniline this way when I'm in a super-low state and I need to set up some guardrails for myself but all this starts quite honestly Kisha you gotta you gotTa Take Your Medication and Vokes with bipolar one are notorious for getting in there and feeling better feeling a bit leveled out and then they quit and think everything's all good and then they. They stop right and they go right back to where they were. So that's my big recommendation to you is get with a psychiatrist asap someone that you trust not this just gonNA dopey up and say, all right going this on your way who's going to talk to you learn about you and then you're gonNA have to get some accountability in your community. That's GonNa, help you when we're about to get off the rails Keisha, your finances, he'll only to the extent you try.

Fashion History Now: Nurse Uniforms

"One of our most recent episode was about the history of nurse uniforms and we talked about how the nurse's cap is very specific symbolism and how the wearing of the cap really started to die out in the late seventy s moving into the eighties but we got an email that. I'd like to talk about from listener. Bath Case Bolt. Who SAYS ONO? No CAPS did not quite disappear as quickly as one thought because Beth is a registered nurse and she writes I was in the nursing program at Alderson broaddus college now university in Philippi West Virginia from nineteen eighty four to nineteen eighty eight. She says we wore navy. Blue dresses with stiff white cotton aprons complete with bibs or navy pants with a small style. Top with white pin tucked front and caller. She says the uniform double knit and they didn't necessarily change their uniform colors in the four years but what did change the color of the stripes on their caps. A and I thought that was really interesting. And she goes on to say that from nineteen ninety three to nineteen ninety-six. She says I taught an L. P. N. program at Danville Community College and Daniel Virginia and our students wore yellow dresses with white aprons. The male students were black pants with a yellow and blue shirt. They receive their caps in their second year. Instructors wore full whites including hose if you didn't wear pants. Nurses always wear white hose and the caps were required of everyone except for the male students. So you are correct. There is no alternative for men with cap so I thought that was really interesting that well into the nineteen ninety s nursing institutions of education. There were still wearing the cap requiring it to wear the cap in so many of you sent us so many fantastic images of yourself and your nursing uniforms over the years that that was really cool. I can't remember which listener in particular. But she sent us a picture of herself in the sixties with her many quote unquote mini skirt uniform. That was really need to share those with Marissa. Because we talked about that. Like how short did it get in the nineteen sixties? So thank you. We'll share those with her. Yeah and I actually asked talked to my mom too. Because my mom was a nurse in nursing school in the nineteen seventies but. She's at her school that the cap was just for pure ceremony. They had to wear it at the candle lighting ceremony when they graduated but that was it. She said we hated caps. But my mom was also a little bit of abroad burning hippie. Sorry mom very much so in response to our prom episode P- listeners. Eileen Chatterton and Jordan Brady Bolt wrote to us to tell us about the prom and homecoming tradition in Texas. Which had never heard of. Have you heard about? Oh yeah because I actually grew up in Texas when I was in middle school so it the homecoming was a huge deal even even in middle school not just high school if you have one if you didn't have one that day of homecoming you're kind of like. Oh No. I'm so embarrassed sized from people who even have more than one where and they're huge. They're like these giant clusters of flowers like of ribbons and bells and everything hanging off over them. So sometimes you maybe your parents would buy one. Sometimes your grandparents would buy you want and then maybe your boyfriend would buy one so sometimes girls were wandering around wearing like two or three of these.

I need them to do their jobs. Well I need them to wear their protective equipment. So that they don't contaminate me and that's really what it's about. We all have to protect ourselves so that everyone in our circles is protected and then of course they draw strength on the fact that people are getting better. I have to have that bounds because there are like I said there's part of my nursing. That isn't what I know capable.

"Welcome the image traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about West Africa. I like to welcome to the show. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM. Who has come to talk to us about Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa? Brian Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you for having me. I know you were surprised that we had not previously done in episode of Amateur Traveler on this region and as we were talking about before we started recording. We don't get as many pitches but also there aren't as many travelers who tend to go to west Africa East Africa. Southern Africa tend to get a little more tourists in general. Why should someone go to that region before we focus in on Senegal? Gambia I think. West Africa's really vibrance several my friends. Who have been there for years in the Peace Corps? Said it's about the People? It's about the markets it's about the color it's about the way they treat you just the life that's on the streets of West Africa. I think we hear of animals. Safaris maybe eastern Southern Africa West. Africa's is really the beating hearts of the continents with some of the most populous countries in the fascinating region with lots of smaller countries grouped. In that you can visit In the whole region there will. We've chosen to talk about Senegal and the Gambia one. Because you've been there recently and we always try and focus on someplace. That wasn't a ten years ago trip. The you've been to all the countries in Africa. Yes four fifty four nations and Africa hats off to you. Thank you and people may be wondering why we're talking about the two of them. This is one of those very odd places where one country actually completely surrounds. The exactly the Gambia's inside of Senegal. So the Gumby has no other neighbors have Senegal to the North East. The South and the West is the ocean. So it's completely involved excellent. And why should someone go to Senegal Gambia? I think Senegal and the Gambia great introduction to Africa and especially to West Africa. They're safe countries. They're countries that are kind of a soft introduction. They're not quite as hard hitting some the other countries in west Africa. Very safe to visit for me. The the weather was very nice after coming from kind of more tropical and intense heat in the Sahara for example movement way across and the people. The people are very friendly. There's not vowed kind of lively music in the streets that you can listen to all the time and there is a decent number of Europeans between but a large French population. There's quite a few Lebanese. That live there a special indy car in the capital of Senegal. And it's it's very soft welcoming place that would not intimidate so I think most people when they think of Africa that would be a great place to start and by contrast. Then what you're saying is there's some of their neighbors. We're them might be a little more. You think twice about going because of poverty terrorism Civil war or disease. Yeah those those are the only reasons I can think of not to go to some of the areas over the last ten years at least in western Africa and I think the Transportation as well kind of infrastructure with having made my way of public transportation there are a lot of Africa can be extremely slow and the Senegal Gambia. Our little breath of fresh air to be able to get around quite a bit easier than the light of the countries in the region and I'm fascinated to hear about this. I have technically been indycar but really only in the airport. And they didn't let me off the plane so I really knew very little about the area. So what kind of itinerary would you recommend? I think that Senegal be the one that you'd want to spend more time in. The car has quite a bit to see in there quite a few beaches right there. Outside of the city I stayed in a neighborhood called walk. Tom Which is nicely placed next to the African Renaissance Monument which is the largest statue and all of Africa. That kind of looks down on the whole region there and Indycar and you can take a couple of really nice day trip south from the car so if you stayed there for two three or four days I think that would be an ideal amount of time to spend their most people like I went to a place called Goree Island which is very famous for being one of the biggest places that had slaves that were coming out to the Americas and you can learn a lot but the history. They're easy to walk around. There's a ferry that goes every couple hours to get there and place it almost everyone. The cousin Senegal visits during the first couple days sides stay for the car to three days with the city and the surrounding area and then a couple of days up to St Louis which is about four hours for five hours north by bus. Okay and you could spend a day or two. They're known for its famous. Saint Louis Arch known. Not that Saint. Louis Okay the other Saint Louis in Senegal. It takes a good six to eight hours going by bus. You could take a private car if you want. Or if you're on a tour to get down to the Gambia assume that's GONNA take up half or two thirds of a day and then I'd be down in Bonn Jewel and area right below it whether it's nice speeches and a monkey parking things for two to three days so I think you could easily piece together somewhere between eight and ten days which would be kind of a nice length of a visit between Senegal Gambia. Excellent so you started us into car and you mentioned going out to the island whose name I've already forgotten it's gory island heart ee. Eileen with just one of the biggest hubs for the slave trade and they have fairies that go out every couple hours and that's definitely Come a must do if you're in Dakar. I think almost anyone I've talked to has done not visit for half day or two thirds of the day and real easy to walk arounds. Thinks about a kilometre too long. And that's locals there with colorful art kids playing soccer in slave museums. That are there that you can visit as well and so I assume there's a fourth year which is where they keep the slaves locked up. Yes and what else are we going to do the two or three days in the car? How are we gonNA spend that you mentioned the monument and there's a couple of monuments there the country it's about ninety six percent Muslim and so there's several nice mosques to visit as well in the lot of fishermen that go out and I love think West Africa? One of the images of the coastal areas. Are these colorful fishing boats that you can see like dozens of guys sliding off into the water and then sliding back up with their catch from the day and there's a lot of seafood that they bring in so these real colorfully painted. Boats is one of the images that you'll see on the coast there in Indycar and their fishing from the there than rather than from okay and is there a place you would go to see that. There is a mosque called the mosque of the divinity which had a bunch of these colorful boats right next to it and it's right there in the car about five or ten minutes from where I was staying in the neighborhood of calm and I stayed AIRBNB. There's lots of airbnb options there for budget travelers and there's all different ranges of accommodation but there are inexpensive options for those looking for him as well and I stayed with a local man there and enjoyed always like state local people to give you all flavor of what it's like will what I usually find when we're talking about. Travelling in lesser developed areas of Africa is that we're talking about not an inexpensive flight to get in relatively expensive for the distance intra country flights inside of Africa. Compare for instance or a US but then really cheap food and really cheap housing. Is that right? Yeah that's true. And so that's the Pros and cons. I always way between local transport and the flights I think the flights between the Gambian cars forty minutes so in say but I just checked in it's still upwards of one hundred forty to one hundred eighty dollars for a forty minute one slight. It's not too bad for Africa standards. It can be a lot worse a lot worse or west African flights but bus. I WanNa say it was about eighteen dollars that took me there so you just have to pick and choose. What's worth more your your time or your money. Well and that is going to be an individual choice. Yeah another thing. A lot of people like to do is there's a pink lake there several of these in the world. There's one in Mexico unless Jerry I believe and there's one about Sarah outside of Dakar. That is is another kind of one of them. Must do things on the visit. That would take you maybe about a half day and so that is really really pick. Yeah if you look at pictures online. There's one called Rainbow Mountain in Peru or I don't know how much instagram or things put filters on it and this one depending on who's pictured is it's pink. It was quite pink but sometimes the pictures make it. Look even more amazingly think depend on. The season tends to be kind of lighter darker shades of pink. That has the salt miners. That are out there. And kind of local people selling artwork in tourist items. So and so this is Lake Ripa. Yes my GRANDPA Loch rose. I think in French shore the lake what it can go by. I would say gory. Islands and Pink Lake would be to half day trips. That would make sense to have with your day or so exploring around the car so to make it two or three days for the car and it strives. You might say

Florida Makes Plans To Welcome Back Tourists, Revive Economy

"Florida is making plans to restart. Its economy tourism is one of its biggest industry so this would mean okay so tells. Beaches theme parks. Estate Task Force is releasing recommendations today on when that might be safe. Here's NPR's Craig. Allen Research shows the crow viruses spread by close contact especially indoors because of that Florida Governor Rhonda Satis believes many of Florida's attractions can be enjoyed safely. A lot of the things we offer you know it's more of the outdoors in the sunshine. And and I think that that's just a better environment to be in in Florida until the corona virus. Nearly one and a half million people worked in the hotels restaurants theme parks and related businesses. A young the CEO of the State's tours maiden see this week rolled out a marketing plan. That's ready for hotels restaurants and other businesses. Get the green light to reopen. Young says. The good news is that more people have been visiting. The states travel. Safety Information Page recently tells us that people want to know if it is safe to travel to Florida because desired visit our state still exists covered the saddest encouraging local governments to reopen beaches activities. Like running walking swimming while maintaining social distancing guidelines but in southeast Florida from Palm Beach to Key West. Some of the state's top tourist destinations. The beaches remain closed in Miami beach. The mayor says they likely won't be reopened there for June. That decision hasn't been popular with people. Like Phillip Goldfarb. He's President of the fountain blue a landmark Miami Beach Hotel. He says allowing resort hotels to welcome visitors without also opening. The beaches is a mistake. GonNa come and stay at a luxury hotel or a resort or a regular that you'd want to be a go to the beach Florida's largest attractions. It's theme parks. Also considering how to reopen the CEO of Universal Orlando John Spouse says handling potentially thousands of guests in a way that keeps them. Safe is a challenge but theme parks. He says have some advantages. Each are parts alone is over a hundred and twenty five years. Total conflicts is nearly eight hundred eight years. We have a greater ability to practice and enforce social distancing while still allowing guests to experience our parts at first attendants would likely be limited among the things being discussed is screening employees and guests when they enter the park encouraging face coverings and sanitizing rides throughout the day. Universal says it will create social distance spaces for guests by staggering seating on rides and shows sproul says it will also move to virtual lines already in use at its waterpark. We minimize the amount of time. Anybody waiting in any kind of lying there for standing in a group Waiting to take one of the attractions. And we're going to take that urge align technology and expanded to many of our attractions as possible as to win. The parks might reopen spouse. Would only say hopes it will be sooner rather than later. Dr. Eileen Mardi and Infectious Disease Expert at Florida. International University is not so optimistic safely reopening large attractions like sports stadiums and theme parks before. There's a vaccine or better testing available. She says we'll be difficult. Particularly the big theme parks draw individuals from all over the world. And not just from a community so it it. It's a much more challenging thing to figure out how to open those parks up safely. Industry analysts are divided on. How soon theme parks can reopen one analyst predicts Disney? The industry leader may reopen? Its parks as early as June but a report released by another financial firm. Said BECAUSE OF HEALTH CONCERNS. Disney's parks will likely be closed until January

She was chosen by the Guardian as one of the world's one hundred most inspiring women. Dr Bloom is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis. And what have you

Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland

"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House. That I'm sure the lighthouse still standing to this

"Now. In each episode we take a closer look at a story that we think deserves a bit more attention. And this week we're looking at the work of the late. Irish architect designer and modernised Eileen Gray the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York City is currently exhibiting the biggest retrospective of the designer's work in the US since the nineteen eighty s. a good time. We thought to learn a little more. His uncle's mate Lee Evans. Eileen Gray was truly a modern day renaissance woman and pioneer of the modernist movement trained as a painter gray was an architect and designer working in furniture textiles and graphics though many may know her name thanks to contemporary furniture pieces set into bliss steel gray experiments with numerous materials throughout her career. In fact much of her initial work was a very different style. Utilizing the ancient technique of lacquer locker at the time was a very unusual medium. It was primarily used for restoration for furniture on the French at this particular time or very suspicious of lacquer because of its mystical properties. That's right if a golf curator of the Eileen Gray collection at the National Museum of Ireland. It was an ancient technique that not widely used in contemporary furniture. Design on gray really. Singlehandedly began to introduce locker pieces at the furner exhibits at the time at the Salim's at the time and the French publicly took on the critics began to shower her with praise for her very unusual work which really does the work of cubist movement freezing.

I'll share with you to do in your own meditation today and to self soothe just as you would be with a loved one or a good friend in their pain and their time of greatest need you could be with yourself and you could talk to yourself a Fermi that you're going through an anxiety attack and although you may not be able to stop it right now you will be fine when it's over at it will be over and win. It is over. You will allow yourself some time to be peaceful and calm after all you're going through and you can notice where you are experiencing the attack the most in your body so observe yourself as if you were gathering information to help yourself which is why you are doing and this will help. Take the edge off the fear associated with panic

Gay Like Me: A Father Writes to His Son

"And television producer. Richie Jackson is an out loud and proud gay married man and when his teenage son came out to him he was thrilled but when his son said daddy being gay is no big deal. Ritchie knew he had to act his new book. Gay like me. Father Rights to his son is Richie's response. Being gay is a gift he says it also demands knowledge of your history. And how you fit in in America. Our conversation runs the gamut including the historic candidacy of Peop- litigate. Some are actually asking if Mayor Pete is gay enough here what Richie has to say about that right now. Richardson thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. Thank you so much for having me your book. Gay like me. A father rights to his son. I've read it full disclosure. I wrote a blurb for it because I thought it was beautiful and powerful but for those who haven't read it yet talk about what inspired you to write this book. Well thank you for your beautiful blurb and For having me I wrote the book because my husband and I have two children and when our older son was fifteen he told us he was gay and I was elated. I had wanted him to be gay. Hope to be gay. Why it was being gay is a gift. It is the best part about me. It's the most important part about me. It's been the blessing of my life. I wanted that blessing for him. And also you cam parent. If every day you pray your child is nothing like you. I have no self esteem as a parent if I did that. But when our son told us he was gay he said Daddy being gays not a big deal. My generation doesn't think being gay is a big deal and I said Oh no being gays a really big deal and I started to think of all the things I'd share with him about what it means to be a gay man. I didn't want him to grow up to be one of these people who diminishes it. Demeans it by saying gays? Just a part of me just happen to be gay. If he did that he would break on heart and diminish the gift that it is and then in two thousand sixteen donald trump was elected and brought with him the Washington Mike Pence and they've declared war on the LGBTQ community they are more of an imminent threat to our sun than Isis and North Korea. Now I had to warn him what it takes to be a gay man in America. And that was the impetus for the book you write in the book to your son. You're an American. You do all the things Americans do. You even have the dream but America doesn't want you doesn't accept you a systematically attempting to erase you schools. Don't teach about you laws. Don't fully protect you. The America you think you are part of is a mirage. You must every day. Keep a certain clarity about yourself yet. Remain keenly aware of America's vision of you when you started answering my first question. Being gay is a gift but this gift given what what? I've just read what you've written to your son. It's a gifted heavy baggage. It's harrowing to be gay and it's really hard to be gay but think about it our adversaries are not trying to diminish us because we are worthless because where a defect they know that are being gay makes us powerful think about what. Marvel's lgbtq people are. We disappointed our parents. We are at battle with our government. We are stigmatized by religions. We are bullied in our childhoods. Where raced in our classrooms. We've survived the plague and still we rise. Come out and say this is me. That is the spirit of an extraordinary species of people. You right Also my coming out wasn't only a combination of an exploration in an evolution of identity. It was a political act right that is opposite of what of what your son Jackson was thinking. It's just a part of me. It's not a big deal but for you when you came out it was a political act. And why right so I came out in nineteen ninety-three right at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic and are coming out was political. We had to stand up and show in numbers. How many gay people there they were. So that we would force the government to fight AIDS being game being political has always been intrinsically linked from me because my first political act as a gay person. I act as a gay person was going to rally to demand The government fight AIDS and I. You didn't go where I thought you were going to go because I thought you're already doing my answer. I thought your first political act other than coming out was going to a pride parade and you have very strong opinions about what pride has become exactly. Well you know if you if my first political act was going to pride it would not have been a parade because back in nineteen eighty three. We were marching. We were not having a parade. They were angry marches. They were there. Were more fist than flags. We were activists who were Demanding attention demanding rights that we didn't have demanding representation. There were no out politicians. There were no out movie stars. There were very few laws protecting us so back then. Pride was A A rally a March now all the rainbows and the Hashtag love is love and the parades have all lulled us into this complacency into this false idea that things are better and corporate sponsorship. You Right Pride was a rebellion. Not a logo or handed together not branded. Yes so we didn't have any corporations and I recognized that back then we would have craved the corporate attention. Oh Yeah and Just somebody to say we see you and we support you but right now what these corporations are doing is they're slapping rainbows on their Store windows they're putting floats are parade but they also when we're not watching supporting local politicians with who are anti lgbt because it is in the best interest of their business so they're pink washing us so corporations are a complicated thing for us in our in our pride rallies in our pride rallies. But given what you just said there are corporations that step up and and go to bat for us when more powerful than our government when when state legislatures do so called Bathroom Bills Tim. Cook probably the most powerful. Ceo of a gigantic corporation put his personal cloud on the an he. He is gay right. I'm put his clout on the line. Does that no extraordinarily or you could look recently at Tennessee bills. Where all the company said. This is bad for business. They still got signed into law. The only company that did not sign that letter denouncing these laws is Fedex on. That says a lot yes You what I find fascinating is in. We're of the same the same generation and this son who has didn't really have to be in the closet. You right you were never in a closet. You didn't start. Start your gay life with that prison of secrecy. Aninat weird way was the closet or is the closet A benevolent incubator. Yeah it's interesting To sit there sitting in the closet and be able to discover yourself and and have a sense of what you're facing outside. You know one of the things I think a lot about. Is these young kids. I celebrate them coming out so young but are they ready for. What's going to come at them? Once they are out and You know the the I wouldn't know how to be our son to live in a world where he didn't I didn't start my life Hiding Eileen start my life with secrets and I think so many of us Do that that becomes a modus operandi for the rest of our lives. You can't compartmentalize secrets. So if you start your life in prison and a full of secrets hiding that's GonNa seep out to other parts of your life and my son doesn't have that and I'm grateful for your grateful for it but on the other hand you it makes you super fearful rally him. He has no idea what it takes to be an on alert. Gay Man in America. I one of the things that made me nervous and why I wrote the book is he has no gay guard and Lgbtq people our age. You know that you never let down your guard. You always know who's around you what you're saying. Who can hear you when it's safe to hold your husband's hand when it's not safe to kiss the person you love goodbye. You know What Street to walk down to get to work because it safe. You know what states to live in That are hospitable to starting a family or where you could be fired for being gay there. Were all these things. That take daily vigilance. And if you don't have a gay guard you're at risk and our son didn't didn't have that when he was leaving college looking for college and yet as you write in the book I want you to talk about about this. I'm going to read this one. This one sentence. And then you run with it us. Very Gotcha. Gotcha which you're ready. Fresh said this right now but you right just a few months old and you were already confronted with gay prejudice right so Our Son was three months premature. He was an identical twin and they were They had twin twin transfusion syndrome. They were born three months early in our first born son died and Jackson was In intensive care for three months and when he was eight days old and two pounds he had surgery and over the course of the time that he was in the hospital he needed a blood transfusion. But because we are gay men Both me and my partner at the time B. D. Wong who Who Who I had Jackson with. We were not allowed to donate blood. We were his parents. We had pledged take care of him and to you know protect him and we were being told eight days into parenting that we could not do that. And that law still That regulation from the FDA still stands. Gay Men cannot donate blood unless they're celebrate for twelve months the discriminatory Regulations still in place so when we go to our. Pta says we're doing a blood drive my husband and I have to say we're not allowed to participate

"Okay let's talk about the scene ability ability so the data scary. I didn't realize Barry's yes. It's pretty bad counsel for textile. Recycling says this year two thousand nineteen eighteen. Americans will throw away more than thirty five billion pounds of textiles. That's double what it was in nineteen ninety nine Greenhouse gas submissions in two thousand and fifteen from Tex- production totalled one point two billion dollars about billion tonnes rather co two equivalent more than all all international flights and maritime shipping combined. You just met with Anna wintour about this. Yes can you take us into the meeting a little bit. Yes well well. That's a fair fashion institute that heads that meeting and basically the industry is really Aware that you know this has to change and there are lots of companies already doing doing lots of good work. I mean we've been on it for many many years. I mean we you know sort of embedded in our in our way of being But the industry is is looking at everything you know looking a- at The starts with the raw materials. That sort of the first agenda item of this group Because you know the the fashion business solid about fabric clothing you know so. Half of our impact on the environment is the materials are actually seventy five percent if you include the processing of the materials. So that's where we focus. That's where the industry is focused. People know that like making genes. Yeah it's really bad for the environment. Yeah we're all of the places that a white t shirt has to travel on the items before. It's me so water. Use this stunning stunning. You guys as I understand. It did an internal audit of environmental practices. And what did you find Our Environmental Armenta practices We're always doing that. We measure all the time We what did we find. And when did it We've been doing this for some time. We set What we call their vision? Twenty twenty goals about five years ago when we made a commitment that we wanted to be a one hundred percent sustainable company which To be perfectly honest we are not and But we found I think at that point we started really. We'd already been looking at all of our raw materials and trying to redirect our processes to you know become more eco preferred materials cereals and things like that and Profound a lot of things you know. everything we learned we learned. We have a whole team that works on this every day. And so we're always we. We know that things like organic cotton. You know not using pesticides that's huge. Only one percent of the cotton that is used is organic so all of our cotton like ninety eight percent or ninety nine is organic. That's just one material but things like Rayon. A lot of ran comes from cell ran comes from cellulose A lot of it actually comes comes from the rainforest From cutting down trees so it's hard to trace so we make a point that if we use ran which we're phasing out of Because even the processing of ran is Complicated and polluting. What would I'm making an assumption here but I'm pretty sure it's right it ray on? It's used all across especially fast fashion less than it spent. Yeah what would people need to know. How do they know that that's in? Their clothing is labeled Well we label all of ours with fabric content CA. I'm not so sure if that's required and I think a lot of companies do all those companies want to some more close. Yeah so less well true we want to sell more of the good stuff. That's the plan But yes I think we want to encourage customers to to To slow down to be more mindful of their choices as and because actually that is the consumer the consumer is the mask consumerism. This it's not. It's not helping us either. You know it's making our lives a little crazy we. I think we often think if I buy things. I'm going to be happier right and I do. You feel that sort of initial eating right. Yeah pass a day or two yeah right right. And that's why I think especially millennials value experience right so because you don't want to sell just masses of right. What does that mean for your margins? How much higher margins after be Well I I don't think that our our margins have to be hired to sell less I think It's an adjustment. I guess in the business model. I'm just thinking I think I think Well I don't know I. It's not what we do so I don't think about it as mass You've never thought about. That's not the way I think about it right. So where am I going with this You can think about it will ask you about re about reselling okay items yes to collect and you have for a while Yes yes. I didn't years. We've taken back for tenure from as long ago Eileen Fisher from whatever well we're of thirty five years old so in the very beginning by ten years yeah you do with that right so we We resell as we clean and resells much as we can and so many of our stores have a section that has the recycled gold clothing available to customers to buy and than what we can't sell we have a little factory up in Irvington We call her tiny factory. It's not so tiny twenty thousand square feet here New York on the river up on the river and we remake the clothes. So I'm a big like problem-solver like there's a problem you know like the the pollution problem I like. Let's dig in you know something positives going to come of this so What happened with us is that we were taking these clothes back and then we found that we were building up these piles of clothes that we couldn't resell and we were giving them to charity and and things like that but it was just too much we had three warehouses full of it? Glows couldn't resell. We couldn't put them in the landfill so we started Looking what can we do with these calls and we started remaking them into sometimes close but now we're also doing a line of you know like a little pillows and we have wall pieces and we did big show in Milan very exciting. There's a cool machine. Oh yes. The founding layer a bunch of pieces shot video or something. Yeah Have this wonderful woman. Sigi who works works. She was my very first employ And she was the one who starts icy. Yeah she started the recycled program. And but she's the one who found the Thelton machine which was never used for recycling in the way we're using it people make installation with these big felton machines but actually pillows. We're we're doing a sort of typical thing and all one of a kind things and they're just starting to be available in our stores the pillows and some like five of our stores and online line. You can see the pillows and the tiny tags. And there's yeah we're getting there exciting. You have called the brand. Eileen Fisher quadruple bottom line. What does that mean? Right Right It means we measure Our environmental impact our Our social impact. So that's kind of our internal and external so our employees well being and also the well being of the workers in the supply chain right But also of course profit. I almost forgot that one I was like what's the fourth one right profits right. Yes so let's talk about profit and profit insuring privately held still. Yes you use up. I own sixty six percent and the employees on forty that happened. Yeah oh well There came a point where well first of all there was a once. We started having extra profit. The first thought was share it with employees. They the work you know and they you know it's only fair to share which I think all companies should have to do by the way saying that to my kid. It's only affair to shake that up. That's good all right. That's coming up tonight okay. So you said you think all companies should do that. I think all companies should do that. That would helped level the playing for aggressive. Push for that. Yeah Yeah so only after you decided not to go public right well I we were doing profiteering charing before so that was soon as there was extra profits we started sharing the prophets but then Company started wanting to buy the company and I was like well. That's that's not really what I wanted to buy You can tell me now because it's old days.

He worked for. I worked at a gas station. Oh you did a great a lot of money. Yea Thirteen dollars an hour. I made you to fifty cents an hour but that was a different time but still thirteen dollars an hour. Twenty four years ago there was a was a Saturday morning seven to three. Oh I'm so glad I did I. I own my mom money. I had bought some clothes spend given me permission to so so she said how. Are you going to move back and I went and worked at a gas station. Peter back all nine hundred dollars and then I kept working there but how did Burger King at fifteen shape. You well I I got to buy contact lenses. That in those days cost two hundred dollars and it took me several months to save the money to do that but I think it gave me independence. It's you know it gave me choices you know. I worked at Burger King and then I've worked as a waitress and I saved enough money to put myself through college college and And I also think in terms of shaping me. I was very practical about money and I think that I understand the value stand end money understand the value of money. Do you think that has stayed with you because it has been with me through my career I still think about do. I really need to buy that coffee or I'm going to bring my lunch to work or just just the practicality of it. Yeah you still you still despite all the money you've made. Yeah Yeah Yeah I had to be like now I. I sometimes travel business class. I class but I had to be really. I think you're just down and you know just because it seemed frivolous. Yeah I was like well got just a few hours. What difference does it make? You know a little better food or food in general these days. That's true three hundred fifty dollars. Is that what you started the brand. That's right that's right. How yeah? I know it's crazy like I didn't you know I I I. I was a designer did graphics and interior but I didn't know anything about designing clothes really you know although I think design is design and you can you know design a lot of different things but I didn't understand the bash business at all. Aw I didn't even know you. You should do a fashion show. If you're starting line no at all no. Have you ever done New York or Paris fashion. No no no we. We do fashion week in our way in our showroom and you know maybe you know but never never of a runway show. Didn't feel you were just in vogue a few weeks ago. You didn't feel like like you needed Anna wintour sitting on the sidelines She's terrific you know But I think about it. I didn't know it worked that way so I didn't know all that that would be beneficial so I was just at a meeting with her the other day as about sustainability. So they're good. That's a really which will interesting now. We need her her. That's great because and we'll get to that moment but the fashion industry clothing access clothing hatchet huge contributor to waste in this country and in this world so three hundred fifty dollars to start the brand and the influence of Japan. Yes okay and the Komo no help to me about how that all. Yeah yeah well it also comes back to my mother because my mother saved every scrap fabric when she would so so I was very interested in Not Wasting sure so I was fascinated by the chemo when I was in Japan because First of all I like the shape you know the simplicity of the shape and movement and And but also the fact that they were only that shape for over a thousand years in Japan. I thought what an interesting concept you know. What a timeless idea I of no waste that you could keep using these things year after year? Pass them down to the next generations they have trunks full of their Kimonos. Of course now they wear western clothes you know but you know for put timeless classics. Yeah yeah definitely you make it to a trade show. Yes you're back in the early days ago roughly nineteen eighty-four. Okay all right so the first show I sell close. I stand there. I can't speak the first day because I you know speaking is not what I do a little nervous pictures and I guess I was so nervous I couldn't speak. I just remember and people would come by and ask me you know What does it cost? What are the style numbers and like Oh style numbers? Oh could you come back tomorrow. Let me think about price you know really you went into a transient without thinking crazy. After Burger King and all of that so I understood about money. I knew that I wanted to sell clothes. Oh so you know but I just didn't know you know I just didn't know what to expect but you know I started talking to other designers. There's and people there and they helped me to figure how to price the clothes and style numbers on them and all that and I sold a few I sold I think eight stores and my first Ah Show and you know that was great little start and I was like I felt like I was learning is understanding the business you have described in the past the women that where I lean Fisher as artists therapists and teachers. Yes okay and journalist Okay right okay. It's broad yeah. Yeah yeah well. I think it's broadened. Lots of women find the close But I think it has something to do do with the way that you kind of find yourself in them that they don't sort of where you you know their their There's you know I guess there's a certain style about them but I don't think one always will look at someone and say that's an island Fisher like today people companies that you know. I'm wearing your sweater. I'm wearing your pants. I'm wondering you know you know they do all the New York Yeah but I do. I two more commonly I give people my credit card and they go to know that there's a famous designers of the same name as you love that No but I think what I was saying is the point about the clue like I'll often not recognize someone wearing island fisher because they become their so simple. Yep If they become you what is the key because I if I can find that purple sweater I bet it would look pretty similar to something that you would probably. How do you keep something timeless and elephant especially in the age of fast fashion exactly and Scranton? How do you do that? Yeah the first rule is keep it simple and The second I think is good quality material and Yeah Not to you know like you want to move with the trend. You know so if it's if people are wearing skirts or you know if the sweaters are shorter a longer the necklines are changing kind of move without a little little but those kind of things are kind of They're kind of timeless. It's just how you put things together that allows you to shift. Things have have you one thing I thought of as we were preparing for this interview is if I can say this in a polite way I I hope to it comes across it. You are In older executive in the fashion industry. Yes right yes yes yes I kept thinking about. Does she face ageism you talk about yeah schism. Yeah have you ever. I mean you didn't take the company public you don't have an investor is you don't have to. I answered them but yeah I just wonder if you've ever faced that in in your life Personally probably not I would say not good. Her saly I'm sure yeah. I'm sure that's a problem for women working. It's a big problem especially for mothers who tried to get back into the forest after taking a decade or so to be a parent they many experience people think. Oh well you're not relevant of it right right where I I mean ages. I prefer my thirties to my twenty S. And I will be better than my thirties and I think with age comes experience. Yeah yeah well that's nice. I agree And I also think we do. We do wrestle with with relevance in terms of Our our audience we've built an audience that's loyal and grown with us and and reaching the next generation has been in You know work for us. And we're still working on it. The millennials millennials. Do you have data on millennials and if they yes backsliding us. They're finding US surprise point. You have a certain price point. Yeah it's six high yeah So that can be a barrier for some young yeah of course yeah You do resell clothes. We do resell. Yeah the lower price point but do you. What do you know about younger people on the brand? Yeah I know I know that they like our most simple pieces the ones that they they really look at it and go like oh I see. I'm just going to wear that black cashmere sweater every day is the perfect simple thing you you know. That's the kind of thing they're they're they're almost more practical in some ways around Mayton bigger perch. Yeah coming up. Eileen Eileen fishers commitment to sustainable.

I didn't know what to make of it. I know how to help her. I didn't know what to make of Britain. I just remember the thing that stands out in my mind. Is My dad talking about driving to work the next day after taking her to the hospital and you know He. He said he broke down crying. He pulled over to the side of the road and said he had just been thinking the day before on his way to work that these were the happiest days. Wow because she would sort sort of put on right her mass you will today exactly. She would be chaotic rushing around in a kind of screaming and yelling we call it ranting and raving. Oh mom my sweet mother now remembering sweep parts over you know so she wasn't you know goodness sorry that's okay. She wasn't perfect rex. She wasn't per hearts. I saw it with her. You know I got inspired. And did she get to live to see what you built she she I saw enough of it because he did she did. Yeah I think she was. I think she was amazed in you. Yeah I think yeah. Because she was not afforded the opportunity or didn't think she had the opportunity to career. Oh no no. I don't know why I think she didn't think she had choices in our life. I remember vividly Ruth Bader Ginsburg talking talking about her mother. Scream court justice and of course what she has worked to achieve is because she saw her mother who is very smart art right but just the time right society right that her mother didn't have the opportunity to achieve those things. That's right yeah I can relate to that I can totally relate. I always felt like my mother didn't have her own money. She didn't feel like she could buy yourself address. You know yes we did by fabric and make some things. But I don't remember ever making herself address and and that the ability to be financially independent is he's a reality for so many people and scary. Has that shaped how you think about money. I know you're a little bit uncomfortable. What with money with money? I know I am wow actually lost the question you said. That's obviously how uncomfortable I am that shape at all sort of how you think about money. Yes yes yes. I think that I knew that I wanted to be independent. I wanted to be able to make the choices I wanted to make. And whether that was by a garment I wanted to buy or go to college. I put myself through school much. My father didn't think that was unnecessary. He your father did not think it was necessarily a Girls go to college. He sat down to say well. It's great that you're going to college but we don't have the money to support you to do that. Did he think you should have a career. He didn't think it was necessary. He said that you're you know get married. One day your husband. We'll support you even after seeing what your mom went through. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I just think that he saw the roles very clear but then fast forward a few decades he comes to New York. Yeah you're starting out. He was blown away your book. And what did he say he said. Oh my God I lean. You know it's money you made last year. I said no he sad and he said two hundred thousand dollars. That wasn't the profit that was just the revenue at that point. You know but that was enough for him.

Makes it their mission to be better ally. Do it right ally Bank member FDIC, so today story isn't just about a clothing brand that's had a huge influence on fashion and the business of fashion. It's actually a story about overcoming fears and deep personal insecurities because back in the early eighties. Eileen Fisher was extremely introverted and even terrified at the idea of speaking to buyers and customers about her clothes how she overcame that. It's a pretty cool story it I ran in two thousand seventeen and I hope you enjoy it. I was so freaked out the first day, I literally couldn't speak. I just did their people would ask me questions. Like how much does it cost? What's the style number, and I like froze and other people in my booth would help me out say, you know, oh, why don't you come back tomorrow show? I was like a deer in headlights. From NPR how I built this of show about innovators, entrepreneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements. They built. I'm guy rise. And on the show today. How an introverted interior designer got over her stage fright to launch. I lean Fisher a multi-million dollar clothing company for women. So if you know a little bit about the clothing industry, the giants especially for women's apparel are brands like Chanel and verse satchi and Prada, and of course, h Namen Zara. So given that I lean Fisher does about three hundred million dollars a year in revenue it's comparatively small, but in women's fashion, the brand is also incredibly influential and not just for the designs. But how Eileen Fisher started her company to be precise with just three hundred and fifty dollars. She never took a dime from outside investors. And she still owns about sixty percent of her company her employee's own the rest now if you've seen the close you'll know that they're pretty spare and minimalist low key. But also elegant which is sort of how you might describe. I lean Fisher. It's funny because lately I've been kind of calling myself shy extrovert. I think I don't know that I'm wired so much that way. I just think that something I was kind of shut down when I was young, you know, the classroom. I remember there were like sixty kids in my Catholic school classroom, and it was just always safer to to hide and to be small and not speak owing grew up in a middle class family in does Plaines Illinois in the nineteen fifties and sixties she had five sisters and a brother her dad worked as an accountant for a local company in her mom's spent her days at home doing laundry and cleaning and making dinner for all nine of them. I think, but I mostly remember as my mother, you know, her kind of unhappiness, I think it was hard raising seven children. I think she felt it was her job to do all the hard work. And my dad felt you know, his job is to go to work and make the money in her come home and be taken care of after that. So she would pretty much. Kind of we call it ranting and raving all and then my dad would come home and just before my dad would come home. She would get dressed and get the meal ready and sometimes even put on lipstick, and I just remember. I was about sixteen and my mother had a breakdown, and my father said that the next day he was driving to work, and he had to pull over on the side of the road. And he broke down crying realizing that he had thought only a few days before that these were the happiest days of his life. But there were happy. You know, there were a lot of happy moments. Yeah. We played the kids played, you know, we had the neighborhood suburbs and bicycles and we'd play kick the can at night and the good humor truck came down the street, and we got ice cream things like that. So you know, it was pretty much. Your typical suburban experience. I think I lean what after college at the university of Illinois in the late nineteen sixties without any real idea of what she wanted to do. She started out as a math major, but eventually she decided on interior design. I just love fabric and color and playing with the shapes and back to my mom for second. I had sewed with my mother when I was younger. So that was some my happy memories. With my mother. I used to have these pictures in my mind close I wanted to wear we would go shopping and I loved being the fabric store that was one of my favorite places to be in her early twenty. I lean moved to New York with a friend, but with no real plan. Now, this was nineteen seventy two when you could actually find an apartment in Manhattan for a hundred bucks a month. So to pay rent, I lean started doing some freelance graphic design gigs, and eventually she got a job working with a Japanese graphic designer named ROY you she Mora. Yeah. I was in assistant. So I started just doing whatever needed to be done and we designed logos. And we designed packages things for banks. And then we did stuff for Japanese clients, Kirin beer and things like that. And after a short while we were like working together. And you know, we ended up getting into a relationship which was like, no, no. And were you traveling were you did you go to Japan? Right. Right.
