How the Name 'J.John' Came to Be
"Folks welcome back. I'm talking to canon Jay John. Now, what's that all about? Before we get back into the book, canon J John, you go by J John. It's a great marketing idea, because there's no other Jean, but what, how do you come to be forget about cannon? We'll get to that in a moment. But Jay John, what is this? Well, Eric, your Greek, guilty. I'm Greek and my naming Greek is yanagi yuan is. And if you translate my greet name into English, it will be John's son of John. So when I kiss you one is you honest. So when I wrote my first wait, you're first name is yanaki. Yes. Now I've never heard that. Yeah, nagy says John and Johan is his son of John. Well, Yanni's or iwan is John. That's right. Janae is like the diminutive of John. It's like Johnny. It is. So my brother's name is John. We call him, you know, Yanni Yankee, whatever. Okay, so you decided living in England to keep things simple to be able to communicate this. You're never going to pull off this yanagi's thing. No, so I Anglo size my name and then when I wrote my first book, several decades ago, I just had this idea, oh, I'll just call it J John. But I never ever dreamt that the book would do really well. And then that person J John was being invited to go and speak. So I never intentionally decided. But so then I did. And it stuck. It's a bit like C. S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, DL moody. Yeah.

"The jags versus the texans and i looked in the jaguars were laying three on the road and i was like wait. A second you're telling me a rookie quarterback with a first-time nfl head. Coach is laying three by principle. I do not care who they're playing against the next game me my pickle losers the jags minus three from a foundation standpoint in elliott. I've actually got a question for you. Because i didn't know this before i looked it up. Can you tell me who in the world. The texans head coaches colleague. Right from the ravens. Well yeah i had no idea. I did look and see that. He came from andy reached tree in was from baltimore. So kudos to you for actually known that. What actually makes me feel good about this. Bet is tyrod taylor. Tyrod taylor is a veteran that if we remember last year he was supposed to be the starter in san diego. Guess for the chargers before their medical team headed mishap. Boom here goes justin herbert's trajectory. So i feel better. Getting three points with tyrod taylor and while the texans don't have sexy players on them they've got a bunch of mark ingram's in philip lindsay's and david johnson's. I'm not writing home to tell anybody about that. But when look at what's on the other side of the jags not only had one victory last year. There is no way. I am laying three points with the jags so the jags pick a loser of the week. What about you. I like that a lot. I've written up the texans as one of the better like Pool spread. Because i think everyone's going to pick the jaguars forgetting yes therefore accolades much improve. They did go on fifteen last year. The texans are the worst team football but laying three on the road. That just feels grossly. I think the texans are there right. So i won't game but i think your your pick a loser. I i like where you're going with it for me. I'm gonna go with the jets i. They are much improved team. There's there's no more roberts. I'll against fading a rookie quarterback. I think the panthers are going to surprise people to give the jet secondary a ton of problems. The jets just lost carl austin. Who is there marquee. Offseason edition on the defense who finally was supposed to replace a basically be their first real ed rusher since john abraham his backup vinny curry is also outfit season. They traded for shack lawson because they have no ability to get pressure on the edge. So you can't get pressure on the edge and you can't cover anybody. Their number one corner was just cut. Blessing awesome they. Don't have a single guy on the roster who is greater than a fifth round pick and they're covering dj. more robbie..

"And i wanted to give magic a new flavor in the show and kind of look at look at it through a sifi land so that it yes it is magic but it's about frequency versus. You know wars that sound like latin and found very whoo it it. It's more grounded so that's part of the sound thing to but of course as you said it's it's about female voices and owning your voice and and all of that stuff to it really hit hau-kei thome on so many different levels and it's just really been as i said a breath of fresh air to watch something like this. It's just has everything. If you dissect a series what makes us successful series it usually. It's it's simple but it's so hard you have to have go writing. And and a great cast and and good people that are behind the camera and kudos for you for not only having women directors but women writers to on this year's oh my goodness so many female voices and female producers and and so many brilliant women have come together to make this show possible and some and some good guys to some some good men as well who had the right spirit and yeah.

That's my deepest hope. And and i'm glad it landed that way for you. Well you know what it is to. is you know. i'm a little older. So i i like series to have something to say. You know as always entertained and this one has a message behind it. And i think those kind of messages endure a series to keep going and i think that's why you know so many people are hooking onto it because it has something to say it does and you know it's not just a show about attractive young people with magic powers which there are kind of a lot of those and and them and i certainly enjoyed those shows. But i think you're right and and it's another testament to free form. I mean it's kind of a show that that you know talks about stuff like genocide and slavery and some of the greatest evils of the world but unfortunately persist to this day. So you know it is it does have sort of deep gnarly roots and it does have something to say and let me tell you the crazy places on taking in season two. Well first of all you have to allie.

What is one of the salem. Witches a was a witch and be cut a deal with the massachusetts play militia before we were even a country and said you know a win awards if you'll make a place for a winner wars if you make a place for my people and that was immediately so provocative that you know. Even though i always love sci-fi fantasy. I never really tried to to figure it out and i just i just dove in and every single kind of what if i came up with was more provocative than the last night just kept going and so i tried to do it as a book series and i had never tried to do that before so it was very humbling and it took a while and i finally got look proposal together and send it to a lot of publishers and people were extremely high. They kinda universally loved the idea but we couldn't find a home for it and then i got busy with other projects and my wonderful producer. Kevin message who has been almost super naturally loyal to this thing called me and said why don't we do this. The tv show. And i was like yeah. Why didn't we think have this like eight years ago because it's such a tv show because the world there's just so many things to explore in the world it just even in that initial moment felt like one of those really rich playgrounds.

You know. i'm i won't call myself a master world builder. But i've been careful as i can and i've just followed my own curiosity in terms of how everything would lay out differently and it's been so much fun and you know luckily with season two we're gonna get to a slower some of this history in flash down not necessarily a pure flash back like you see but a more complicated kind of flashback. That i don't wanna give away this. But we're gonna be in some of these some of these historic conflicts. That that we're going to learn about and we're going to see them firsthand and i can't wait because again. There's just so much stuff to talk about when you like that.

Twitter Says Goodbye to Fleets
"Remember fleets feature available on twitter peg to piggyback off. The success of apps like snapchat by allowing users to share text updates photos video. Whatever they wanted that then disappeared in twenty four hours while it's gone. It's no more on wednesday twitter bid farewell to fleets due to the lack of new user engagement. You could say it's time on twitter was fleeting. I mean i'm a dad. I had to put a dad joke in there. I'm sorry a twitter. I rolled out the feature last november and as of last month twitter confirmed it was shutting it down now it was originally launched in an effort to attract new users to the platform who did have an interest in tweeting. What happened though was it was mostly used by regular twitter users. Who were already tweeting. Because they wanted to amplify their own tweets and talk with other people that are using twitter all the time. Eliot brown twitter set a product said in a blog post the social media platform will attempt to incorporate features from the composer that was used to create fleets such as the full screen camera. Text formatting options and gift stickers. This is actually something they've done before. Twitter has shut down big Things that they've added to the platform and then incorporated them into the broader picture. Later down the road for example when twitter dial back it's twitter moments feature that offered quote curated stories about what's happening around the world and quote. They ended up updating it and then they turned it into the export tap which you can use to see kind of what's going on in the twitter verse. There was also periscope the live video streaming app that shut down in march. But it's also a part of twitter's overall functionality. And you know it's obviously interesting to see twitter and all these other platforms experimenting with different features. It's also interesting to how snapchat has really been this big influence on a lot of the platforms out there. Remember stories snapchat stores were big thing and then every single app out there. One of their own stories feature facebook added it instagram at it. It's been very successful on instagram. You know we've seen twitter experiment with it obviously And tick tock now is kind of the new hot thing. We're seeing other Absence services kind of try to mimic what they do So that part's always fascinating. But i really am curious. What twitter does with these features and fleets in how it incorporates it. And that's obviously something we'll see over time What happens

"The end was going to be that. We work with the bookend to this area of anti In silicon valley where Mattress companies were tech companies and Ride hailing companies were billion year and We thought and for the first few months after the we were collapsed. Really did seem to be the reality. There was actually people forget it. There was a huge chill in the funding market in silicon valley Especially for companies with large losses. Softbank had all of its. It's almost all of its companies. Like completely changed you know approaches to stop growing which was their instruction beforehand and softbank. We're going to give you a ton of money. We want you to grow as much as possible and in fact that will be our strategy. You're gonna push everyone else out of the market with our money. That's the strip. That's how you will win. And then of course in most cases that didn't work right and so then after we work they did one eighty and they're like actually we met you need to instead of grow we meant profit and like it's like well you gave us all this money to lose to spend which which brings losses so it was it like a complete whiplash for these founders. And then you know then the pandemic happened and it was like wow. It looks like everything is going to go to hell. And we were really have been the book end and then two months later the stock market goes insane and tech companies go insane on on the stock market and fast forward to the end of twenty twenty early. Twenty twenty one we were finishing up the the epilogue and It was a completely different story. What happened was no-one really learned anything. things were getting really highly valued and particularly in spackling. You just see essentially these. These mini works going public with no revenue at all huge billions. But they're selling a vision a vision. That happens to be invoked. Yeah i mean at least at least at least we work had a company and had revenue and before buying things were talking about electric car. Makers that don't make electric cars and in some cases may be never will just this. Has this really funny set of parallels where has a really charismatic outspoken founder. He took out one hundred million dollars or so before the company went public. He bought a ranch with some of the money and then told the wall street journal has did adam that he wanted to turn it into a Organic farm he got a jet Instead of buying away full company jet ski company like and that's a company that had no appreciable revenue And just a vision for making a hydrogen truck network and it's still worth like seven billion dollars or six billion dollars. I mean it your concerns about you know. are we overvaluing. We work Which is an existing companies. Seem almost quaint right. Because you've got a new set of investors theoretically these these day traders on robin hood who are Are classically game. Stop right there. Just doing it for memes and lulls and there's no one's can pretending to look valuation anymore. It's just fun to invest in if you're a real investor you piggyback on that because it's a way for you to make money and the idea of what what is the company actually worth is now totally abstract. It seems at least in this current moment. Totally i it sort of makes me wonder what on earth were doing here as reporters because i mean. Yeah it's We work the the lesson that i was well. The public markets were were the splash of cold water. They were reality setting in. And now if you look at the public markets in pockets so you know electric vehicle companies Nineteen ninety mall retailers it. there's just this complete rationality that's You know you talk to some of the traders and they will say the quite allowed. They're like oh yeah. I'm only investing in. This is not. Because i think it's well valued but because i think someone else is going to pay a higher price for my share Like well look quotes. No one ever said that we work but yeah it really sort of questions. The owl's sense of reality and rationality around these things like you know this is what would bubbles which can inflate and mean they're gonna pop Do and so when you have a ton of rules go away and inserted hard to figure out. What's what yeah i mean. People were were decrying. The dot com bubble for years and selling short against it and eventually they gave up because the market was beating him into submission and they couldn't do it eventually. The bubble popped but being right in nineteen. Ninety eight. didn't help you if the bubble going for two more years. I don't want to end on a down note. How about this for for upbeat note. You wrote an excellent book. Marine wrote an excellent book. i recommend to everyone. Who's listening to this podcast. If you liked the nerdy business eve fundraising stuff that we often get into in this podcast as a big chunk of this book It's quite a tale. Good job elliot. I would just like to say we also have lots of salacious lives of the rich and famous element to keep. Readers interested absolutely absolutely. There's also a not not saying it's sexless sexless sexless. There's some intense but that's being on.

"Today is eliot brown. He is the co author. Along with maureen farrell of the cult of we is an excellent book but the spectacular rise and fall. We work in its founder. Adam newman welcome eliot. Thanks for having me. It's a great book. I can recommend it literally took it to the pool on vacation People said what is this book. Cu-ltive we now can tell them. It's about we work I think everyone listening to this. Podcast remembers we work but again the spectacular implosion of we work is less than two years ago. But it's been a busy couple years in between then six. Give us the super short synopsis of the rise and fall of we work and then we can talk about covering it turning it into a book. What role the press had in we were ascent and descent and what lessons we've learned but before we get there just set the table for us. Was we work in. Why did it blow up. So i'll try to give the two hundred eighty character version. We were was a co space. Shared office space started by a former baby. Clothes salesman who then managed to convince the world that the investment world that it was a disruptive tech company and he raised over ten billion dollars to build the country's most valuable startup And then it was this Emperor's new clothes tale when the whole financial world realized it was not in fact a tech start up and just a boring real estate company that lost over two billion a year and it had a very high altitude tailspin. That was extremely well. Covered immolation was a lot of money that got burnt. And then the guy burning it did it in a spectacular way in their drugs not not too much sex. I think actually not too much sex and the drugs are relatively tame But done amusing ways. Adam adam newman. The ceo was often like to say god's gift to journalism he just is this walking trail of anecdotes and Hyperbole and hypocrisy Who made our jobs very easy to make stories that that are entertaining but also shows sort of a broader point in silicon valley. So so that's what made me so kind of fascinated by this topic. Because i was pretty close to it for years and then it just became like the super high profile thing that showed a all of these crazy things that i'd been angsting about in silicon valley for years. There's the individual story than what it tells us about the rest of the world. And while adam newman who rags to riches and and then he's not in rags anymore. He still eyeing is is still extremely rich by any objective. Measure is buying multi gazillion dollar properties in miami. I think most recently he he's the villain in the culprit. But he's not the sole player here he couldn't have done this without the help of of some of the biggest in boldface names in in business venture handles from benchmark and goldman sachs j. p. morgan Softbank musc- she on All enabled him to do this. And and to be clear he wasn't committing fraud as far as we can tell they gave him the money and and let him spend it rationally. Yeah what what we Were really so. I was coming story for for thirty years since the early days of we work. But then after the rise and fall were sort of complete at the end of twenty nine teen maureen and i wanted to do a book and and the thing that we thought was not well covered. Well were exhaustively covered. Was the enablers. Like what was the system that made this man you know. Be able to raise ten billion dollars and I think sort of the narrative at the time was like it was all just adam fooling the world but what we wanted to point out was This could have been anyone The system essentially was structured to encourage kind of visionary semi crazy maybe even not semi founders to make super messianic statements in an essentially become these total eagle maniacs and take money and spend it wildly so What we did for the book was with. Yeah really focused on how the sky was able to do that. And what are all the structures. Vc's the mutual funds whereas all the money coming from. Why was it a structured in a way that you essentially just give a kind of wild child the keys to the car And billions of dollars to spend as as he likes and the reason you do it by the way is because you're hoping that person at least a from a business perspective. Turns out to be mark zuckerberg. Yes that's the pattern match that everyone has been doing. And that's and in many cases it has worked right if at least from the investing side. Yeah i mean it's also a not worked in a lot of cases one of getting a little walk in specific. I mean one of the biggest elements of the story that i took away was. It's a tale of founder control. And we used to have this thing in the world where a founder jeff bezos would would start a company and people would believe in him and they'd also believe in the business and then they go public and jeff bezos would own forty percent of the stock and he would control forty percent of the company but not over fifty percent so shareholders actually had to say but sort of in the post. Google age you've had this mean essentially in venture capital that founders need full control and because there's so much money piling to get in they give it to the founders and so then essentially the natural progression of this as you're going to have the occasional mark zuckerberg but you're also going to have people that are completely not Fit to take ten billion dollars in spend it responsibly. And they're going to do something totally crazy because some of these venture capitalists actually Even if founders fund says on their website they're looking for founders. That have near-messianic qualities. Like what do you think was going to happen. But to be clear that the founder control or the sole control public company a public company essentially private company because one person or one family runs it. is not specific to tech..

"It is a transgression liable to censure under both orders civil and ecclesiastical the offense being against both so we walk in attic inasmuch as now we have ordained indian officers onto the ministry of the gospel. It is needed to add a word or two of apology. I find it hopeless to expect english officers in our indian churches. The work is full of hardship hard labor and chargeable also and the indians not yet capable to give considerable support and maintenance and men have bodies and must live the gospel and what comes from. England is liable to hazard and uncertainties on such grounds as these partly but especially from the secret wise governance of jesus christ the lord of the harvest. There is no appearance of hope for their souls. Feeding in that way they must be trained up to be able to live of themselves in the ways of the gospel of christ and through the riches. Of god's grace and love sundry of themselves who are expert in the scriptures are able to teach each other in english young man raw in that language coming to teach among our christian indians would be much to their loss. There'd be of themselves such as be more able especially being advantaged that he speak his own language and know what their manners. Such english is shall hereafter.

I find a blessing when our church of natick doth send forth persons onto some remote places to teach them the fear of the lord but we want maintenance for that service it is chargeable mattered to send a man from his family. The labor is worthy of his hire and when they go only to the highways and hedges. It is not to be expected that they should reward them if they believe and obey their message. It is enough. We are determined to send forth some if the lord will and that we live this autumn. Sundry ways i see the best way is up and be doing in all labor. There is profit seeking you shall find. We have christ's example his promise his presence his spirit to assist. And i trust that the lord will find a way for your encouragement..

"What if that was twenty percent more intense. What would have happened right right. So i've had all of these lucky situations come up in my life even the things that i didn't enjoy at the time And they have been able to let me have the mindset that everything in my life happens for me. Nothing happens to me. I am the victor of my life. I am not a victim you know and so what is my job now. My job is to go out and sprinkle as much luck dust on his many other people as i can in the world. Let's go let's go. You can do it. You can do it. I i firmly and wholeheartedly believe that every individual in the world has the power to do this. Now how do we do that. I say we equalize out the opportunity for as many people in the world opportunity. Not the fucking outcome okay. Everyone needs to have the opportunity to be successful. I know what you meant. Yeah i know what you mean. And now look. I'm a black jew right. That's so we started the podcast Do i believe the opportunities or equal. No i don't but when i'm talking to you let's say john bartolo you're another. You're a young black jewish kid just like me. I would never fucking tell you that. In the world i would never say to you. It's not fair. it's yes. I will tell you. It is unfair. Warm shortfall fat and italian. Everything's unfair. yeah yes. It is unfair for people but that doesn't matter when you're talking to the individual right. You must tell them that they have the ability to do. You cannot tell people that are man you know there. There's racism so you're fucked. There's antisemitism your fuck. There's i hate white people so you're fucked right whatever it is no. You're not fucked. You're fucked if you believe you're fucked you're only fucked if you believe you're fucking you if you buy into the narrative that life that life is fair and it should be fair. Life isn't fair. there's nothing fair about this. You and i are sitting here on a monday talking. There's people that are starving. There's people that haven't had water in ford in three days. It's not fair. what are you going to do about it. Free rides whatsapp snow free rides. There's no free rides. It's all on you but how would you want it any other way. I try to explain it to people like this. Because you're absolutely right. You're gonna always have baggage everyone's gonna baggage everybody's gonna have shit that affected them. A certain way in my baggage is no better than your baggage and your baggage is no better than mind if you operate in that mindset and you understand that you're going to get on the train to leave the bags behind.

What do i think they're gonna get. Yeah what do what do you think. Fifty and fifteen fifteen fifty. A preliminary fought three times a year. You had the ability to make three hundred grand by that by that. And i'm saying guys everybody. Listening prelims card guy is probably ten fights eight fights down the card. Okay and and that's that that makes sense to me. what does what does the. What is the fifteenth ranked wide receiver in the league. Make well they're gonna make millions right but the minimum the minimum in the nfl right so hold on so so that's fifteenth-ranked right is millions. What is the third string wide receiver make on a team. Yeah seven hundred grand six hundred grand and the league minimum at least a little more like the backup. Punter makes the league minimum right. Well i mean the lease so the nfl league minimum. I just looked it up. A six hundred and sixty thousand right so part of what. These unions negotiate is their minimums drug testing time off when many camps are things like that You know beyond that you know. Those aren't bad contracts. Like i said a three a lot of people think athletes make unlimited money. And i want. I want to preface this so people understand it a three year. Let's the average time span in the nfl short. But let's say let's say a three year contract is for six one point. Eight million two million dollars would all the bells and whistles. People here that in the and i want to put it in perspective people here then the that's crazy money. You know after you pay the agent after you and you brought up. That's important and having real agents in the business real support. I get guys coming to me. They're like can you help me find deals. You know what i mean. And i'm like you're in the fucking you have. You should have deals coming out of your ass. I think a way to fix it through the sponsorships. I think that's another angle to fix it. Well that will make it better. But that's an agency job that now becomes the athlete. But there's a way even record them. So i think there's a way even for the sea to play that in to give people the opportunity to have a sponsor but you need someone to negotiate on the on the one hundred percent but i think in the walkout there could be like we put a velcro patch. So you can. Cause that's where the money is. What do you mean in the walkout. Manscaping is all over the cage. Last week in the fighters didn't see any of that money right you the fighters to go fight one hundred percent so so the fighter should be scanning manscaping and bud light and every other thing. That's on that cage. The fighter should be all getting a piece of that. Not just the venom deal. But i think i think a path to fix it a little bit. If we're talking about how to fix it did they can come up with something on the uniform that make sense to allow the fighter to dangle that carrot to i agree with you but you need but i know what you're saying. I'm trying to find counterbalance right. But you need somebody to represent all of the fighters because you can't help it when when you like that when you're aging right mike my agent my agent represents me just like in the. Nfl represents me his job is to go..

They protect you from the world and they give you the world but then something happens to every human right between eight and let's say twelve and they need other people their parents can't do it for them they other people that are gonna steal their life and really influence them and for me because of my upbringing. Excuse me upbringing background. It wasn't pierce peers. Didn't do it for me It was coaches and teachers in my life that did and so what better way to pay that back then to just try to give it back. It's interesting because coaching some that. People easily go to. but they're not easily successful at what is it about the mindset that you need to change from when you're in the ring to coaching to be successful it's so hard right like Everyone told me when i started as well getting into podcasting crazy your credit you well. I'm so used to being interviewed as the athlete. It's about you you talk about you when you're the athlete It's the same thing when you go from athlete to coach. It's no longer about you like it has to all be focused on the athlete. So the idea of the famous coach with you know all of these things that that we can see it. Just he gets in the way of real coaching like the rocky mickey story or something just some dude who owns some small piece of shit. Jim in philadelphia right. That's all it was.

I i realize always realized that for not is to do what they need to do for that. And i let him this with brian with celine dion as real to them. What's actually they believe in the they when they sing. It sounds honest. Honesty is everything. That's what connects asong with a human being. It's about the energy transfer of emotion. So i've always thought well. If i was to make an album what would i do. A why group with is referred to as so yacht rock that sort of late seventies someone someday for me saying it slot when men were able to sing emotional songs for the first time so it was a little risvan but it was doobie brothers and a whole said steely dan soul those influences. All make me who. I am as a musician. That's why i love to listen to. So i've made album called a yacht named sue had up to that so the single is my destiny. I'll just actually planning the video for the second single. So it's it's being great hearing by destination radio to and various other radio stations and people seem to like it like sound like michael mcdonald which is fantastic company to be but it's being the thrill ride my fantastic work may expect from you in twenty twenty one so first of january.

But i'm a bit of an all round so i can play and play a few instruments and a singer as you probably know and lyricist so depends on working with because sometimes people who are just track the musicians and the code people or whatever attract people of the times you have someone who's dedicated lyricist or top line rights melody writes a play the other role in supply the music and accompaniment and it. It's an odd one. When i with gary for instance we both thought do the same things so we tend not to sit in the same studio together for very long. Even we're in the broadway musical together. I think we may have actually being in the room to three times because we we we can finish to the sentences lalo sandwiches so we yes we. Yeah we we take an idea. Also hell you take could take nine. What can i no pun intended. I would go broke komo with one. I got fed up with send to him and because we use the same software very similar kind of approach. It would come up on his computer. Tell ryan middle lane sending bites meal or change the course and one of those things we try to surprise each other nowadays with light changes and different cases exist to keep interesting but we literally think the same way scary. But it's always fun working together but we. It's a waste of time in the same room so we tend to do this law whereas other rights is you really need to connect being the room and it's all about energy essay.

Were you titles man. You mr doctor. I've gone on doctor now man. What are your titles. He's got pages and pages of those and you choose one araya song about. I'd say for leno guys go into. That's how everything changes came about. Because he had everything changed but you in records. So it's it's funny. Sometimes it's something you've heard in a film. The tokens brian johns. About and that song of you ever really loved a woman and the kill ally when you see your own children. There is a sad that winning went. It was a line in the script. No-one his but he's actually just a line. Let's go so it could be anything this issue off tiso something reading a book being someone i i always say that my philosophy about says the happened to holding a pencil. The day in the universe wants to write a song. That's what it feels like. I feel i could come to you for this energy and you might be a cioppino and he gets a win. Those you've just got to be ready to receive. That's that's my philosophy. Did you ever write songs with an autism minding the pitch this song to say bryan adams or do you wait until you meet the artists. And then think. I'll what's going to work for this particular act mostly. I was like hired gun by the label. you know. So for instance. I'm uncowed dialing. I need hit for five. And that was know. Go see him. And whatever and he played me a song on go. I'm gonna do want to follow and so do my thing. Sometimes it was sometimes. It doesn't actually the great thing about what consignments you always know what stood because he'd just say it's a smashed island your out of the room you know but it's been a fantastic opportunity of course to meet people but most of the time it was just i picture song for in august. I would always choose to meet obsessed and get an idea on who they are. Because the thing i've always wanted to do is never is never repeat myself you know. Never be that guy. That only does this does that. So i've always been really proud of being able to go from bryan adams despite skills to celine dion to you know boyzone in the same year and not repeat myself and just make about them. You know that's between the job of a songwriter and producer. Darryl not my record which is made really odd making my own album. The complete opposite yeah. That's the weird thing. But mostly it's the ryan specifically with the artist all being asked by the label to rice specifically specifically for someone you know you mentioned simon net and i wanted to touch on when you worked with jerry on factor in twenty eleven. I know you worked on that series as artists consultant a development role for shy and with all your work with bands would be quite apt that it was the first season. Aband- one little makes you say that. I was hired because abandoned. Never one and i understood why i had an angle. Why and the funny thing was his wife don lamb. Do that show. If i didn't do it because you look after it and we are just the best time is so much fun producers. Were really lovely to me. But i don idea on why abandoned never won and that being the the in two minutes the two minute performance that they have on expert is great for celada but terrible for bond and what we knew from working with the spice girls is that they appealed to five different demographics five fan bases in one band and i really worked the the differences. They celebrated the uniqueness of each artist in that band and mad. They covered so many young girls as a result. You know that. I want to be baby. Spice wanna be ginger. Spoke with bands. Meant you need to get you. Pass out over and too many tough. but what little mix understood. And they were thaw solo. Artists rejects the waited until the very last and we said. Would you mind working together. And they the last bond i saw The boot camp day and we're in a hotel. I was not good. I was going on with one. I am in the morning and jesse was don't forget about us and let them in the hotel. Because i was trying to get to sleep so we have to go over to the gym and they prepared something to sing to me and i said oh my god i ryan gary and iran. Kelly rowland and i said guys. I think we've i've just heard the best thing we've got on their incredible. They came the next day and the goal sang for them. So said look. I've gone angle on. Why is it. So here's the deal before your performance series a two minute which means when we're in the house. I lived in the house with all the contestants which was absolute chaos early. I said to the goals every time you see a camera. It's councils two minutes so perry. You've gotta be perishable makes jesse gonna be just one. Let's make all the time. I'm in the gaza and the boys telling me back in the day. Najah so strict. If more alpha. Milk had to lie marco in from take that look the just me. He was so strict about making sure. The image with that perception was always carried. A set them. Just be who you are every time you see camera. I'm not telling you to be false. I'm telling you to be yourself but be yourself your full on personality. They absolutely got that. And with the help of all of us development people they listened. A word really really hard concert for frankie khoza who was on the things jenner devlin. Did she was absolutely sweet and has gone on to may record album with a door that go. I wrote one of my favorites. Always with a few of the other craig. Colton was really good on that year. There was some fun autism. But the girls mockus. Who made it to. The final was a super solo artist. The goes really listen. I really got it so we had the best time doing so so proud of them. I'm so worried about about jesse.

In The Thick
"Hey welcome to the podcast about politics race and culture from the OC perspective I'M A. And I'm Hutagalung arena. Today, we have a very special guest joining us from yonkers new. York is Jamal Bowman he's the. Democratic nominee for Congress in new. York's Sixteenth District Jamal. To the show. Hello thank you so much for having me. It's great to be here. We don't often speak to you know members, of Congress or potential members of Congress few like somebody maybe unexcited Cossio go. because. You're win like hers was a a really big deal. You defeated Longtime Democratic incumbent Eliot Engel in a huge landslide lead your the likely winner in the twenty twenty general election because you represent a very blue district. So it's really been a super big year for you. Your Primary Win came at the height of the conversation around justice for Black and Brown lives inequity the pandemic. With. It. So really your wind came kind of on the backs of all of that. So. Give us just a quick back story shore. So the back story I guess begins you know being raised by a single mom in the projects along with my three sisters. During the crack cocaine epidemic, which projects I gotTa know which projects Oh Easter projects one hundred, fifteen first avenue in Manhattan. WanNa raise on the. Upper East side East Harlem Section Manhattan went to public schools by entire life lived in the projects in rent stabilized apartments started teaching in nineteen ninety nine in the South Bronx in one of the poorest zip codes in the country, and you clearly can see the inequality the inequity in how wherever you go in a city state or country black and Brown people seem to be suffering more than everyone else. So growing up as a black man in America who has been a victim of police brutality. The first time I was beaten by police was eleven years old and notice I said the first time happen again, the a later on. IOS Eleven hanging out on the street with my friends and being rambunctious in boisterous in doing what kids do and I guess someone may have called the police because we were maybe too noisy a too rambunctious. and. The police came over and tried to live saw curtail us and tell us a comma down. You know we kind of push back in had a few words for them. Next thing I know like I'm being done up against the wall thrones Grou- face dragged all over the floor. In the back you know except Tra, and then we'll take into the precinct and US well to my mom about this later were taken to the precinct in a coma mom to come pick me up with a birth certificate because they didn't believe I was eleven am. makes. Me Think Tamir Rice as I say that out loud rain. She comes with a birth certificate picks me up and takes me home. Didn't explain to her what the charges were if any why they approached us to begin with, they just allow her to take me home in my mom and I didn't even think to you know press charges. Report anything like that. We just kept moving and it just tells you how internalize sort of our oppression is. Right like we just accept we have accepted in I have accepted that okay. There's nothing we can do where powerless. So becoming a teacher. Being a social justice advocate within education and having the opportunity to be a founding principle of my own district, public school charter school, and being education organizers around equity and restorative justice in culture, Responsi-, schools all of that led to me. You know think about a potential run for office and why Eliot Engel while I looked at twenty eighteen election and I saw that me thirty thousand registered Democrats in the district actually voted and he won with twenty two thousand votes. Yeah. Some like, wow. This person has making trillion dollar decisions that impact millions of people and he only got twenty two thousand. Volts Yep you look at who supports him right? Who Funds his campaign we're talking big real estate. Yep Big pharmaceutical companies, weapons, manufacturers, hedge fund managers, and every institution that is hurting our community hurting the working class. Those are the people that are institutions that funded his campaign. So that's why we decide the challenge chairman ultimately were able to win in the end

4 Ways to Live Each Day With Intention by Shelley Levitt
"For ways to live each day with intention by. Shelley. Levitt with live. Happy Dot. com. I WANNA move through life energy and a sense of discovery achievement, joy and engagement. That is my intention. My hope is that living according to it would be the antidote. The uneasy feeling I often have at the end of the day when I flop into bed filled with self-reproach and wonder where my time went. My. Intent is to be guided by purpose instead of feeling that I'm spending my time haphazardly succumbing to whim or distraction according to expert Mallika Chopra creator of the website intense dot com and psychologist Eliot. Berkman. Head of the social ineffective neuroscience lab at the University of Oregon setting intentions. Confession is a kind of internal northstar lighting, the path to greater fulfillment and life satisfaction. These are the changes I've made in the few weeks since setting my intention. Number One, I meditate almost daily. Is taking me years to commit to a meditation habits but the ten or fifteen minutes I spent doing a guided meditation on the common APP has been transformative. The turning point was a workshop I took with so Kessedjian Norman Fisher, a poet and Zen Buddhist priest. When people say they don't have time to meditate. He said I asked them how do you have time to not meditate with a regular mindfulness practice he went on you'll have fewer accidents you lose things less frequently your focus will improve making decisions will become easier. Remarkably found all these things to be true and when I'm feeling stressed I summoned the image I visualized during my meditation I imagine my breath as a long string of pearls and it helps reconnect with that experience of stillness yet as good as meditation makes me feel I'll skip it unless I keep to a schedule. So make sure to meditate daily at eleven am with four PM has a backup. Number two, I've stopped binging on the news. More than ever I. Feel it's important to stay informed but watching new show afternoons show wasn't bringing greater insight into the issues. I care about is only fueling a sense of outrage and I'm happy to have added The Washington Post, my beloved New, York Times subscription reading either one in bed was only deepening my chronic insomnia. So of made some rules, no new shows or Newspapers after nine. PM. Instead I think about how? I WanNa feel inspired amused transported and lanes and I choose what I want to read watch listen to based on that this has led to fewer hours with CNN and more with globe netflix's comedy about a real life women's wrestling league from the eighties the on being with Krista Tippett podcast and Elena Ferrante as beautiful Neapolitan novels. Number three, I cook more. I'd like to lose five or ten pounds, but resolving to lose weight is usually both joyless an unsuccessful. So instead I think about nourishing myself in ways that will align with my intention to feel more energize. And that helps to your me away from takeout Chinese food and into my kitchen when I cook pots of Faro. Embrace Swiss chard practice poaching the perfect tag and dig into cookbooks like Paulo I of food of Morocco and what to eat for how you feel the new all your data kitchen by divvy alter. And try new dishes like Paulo's egg plans a luke or devious sprouted among solid also experienced that sense of discovery and achievement that I'm looking for. Number four, I do at least one new thing each weekend. I've been having all sorts of new experiences, a meeting interesting people volunteering to do kitchen prep at a food pantry hiking trail taking a class in brewing booja walking the Los Angeles River in a meet up led by long distance, swimming champion Diane, and yet attending a talk by no Levine author of Dharma police at the inaugural Budapest in La. Some outings have turned out to be less than inspired. The less said about the mass meditation held at a conscious life expo the better but I always feel like falling through on my intention to step outside my comfort zone. I'm far from living completely in line with my intentions. Three countless ways I stray from the path but feeling courage rather than defeated I've more clarity about the way in which small things Afar too messy desk and unmade bed can undermine your vision of how you want your life to unfold and I think it'll be able to put some new habits in place soon.
The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.
Impact Of Climate Policy On 2020 Presidential Election
"On the most recent Pew Research Survey of top issues for voters this year climate change despite even make the top ten. But not for Varsity precaut-, she's executive director of the Environmental Justice Groups Sunrise Movement. She helped editor book called winning the Green New Deal and her organization gave, Joe. Biden's initial climate platform, an f rating but as Biden became the likely democratic. Nominee for president precaut-. Joined his climate change task force to make sure aggressive climate policy had a place on the ballot this year when we spoke earlier today, I asked her about how you seen his climate policy shift while she's been helping shape it. We have seen his client plan improve considerably over the last three months now, championing policies to decarbonised our power. Sector by twenty, thirty, five, we've seen him increase the level of investment from a one point, seven trillion dollar green jobs and infrastructure plan to a two trillion dollar plan over the next four years on the whole our core goal was to go in and increase Joe Biden's ambition and the Taiwan upon which these benchmarks are happening to decarbonised economy and ensure that. Environmental Justice and climate justice except core and at the heart of his agenda climate seems to have fallen out of the headlines Lately. That's even with record breaking heat fires hurricanes. Instead, the news is dominated by pandemic and economic collapse racial justice. What's your level of concern that climate change may not be getting sufficient political attention and and how do you get that attention? I think the key here is to understand the climate crisis is essentially connected to every single one of crises that are emerging whether it is the uprisings against white supremacy or whether it is the tens of millions of jobs that are been lost in this economic downturn in large part I believe the climate crisis is even thinking because we have racial and economic inequality in this country for example, I believe that after hurricane. Katrina. We would've had a green new deal past fifteen years ago and yet here we are. Fifteen years later, we've got a double header storm and communities engulfs out. That are still suffering We would have had green new deal following hurricane. Maria when thousands more were ricans perished but because we do not value black lives and brown lives, indigenous lives, poor lives as much as others, we have not taken the drastic unnecessary measures to prevent suffering. Do you think climate plays out in local political races as well or do voters think of it mostly as something that has to be addressed on a national issue? Now, I think it absolutely plays out at the local level. The climate crisis take so many different forms in different communities in Iowa overseeing the role that corporate agriculture and factory farming plays as being really detrimental to communities for Detroit. The level of fuel infrastructure contributing to asthma and disease for the majority black community. Earlier, we have seen the election of drama. Or Eliot Angle in New York which Jamal Boom and actively ran and champions agree new deal when his opponent refused to do. So the climate crisis is affecting people at the local and state level not chest. Politics. So, have you thought ahead to if president trump is reelected? What will you approach be to try to advance your climate goals with a presidential administration that may be less receptive Joe Biden would have been. We're still figuring that out. What I'll say is everything that has happened with the green new deal at the federal level and many of the substantive state legislative battles that have been one have been under the shadow of the trump administration, and so I do believe that there is absolutely still space to fight and contests and win, but it will be far far easier. If we have item presidency, Vaujany precaut- is Executive Director of the Sunrise Movement and her new book is called winning the green new deal partially, thanks for coming on the program. Thank you so much

Creating Your Own Opportunities with Wendy Amara
"Okay Wendy, we have you ever combined finally. League and we are actually live in person. We are saying I, know I know let's start from the beginning. So what's your heritage? So my family came from what they might lack Yes, they came here in the nineteen seventies and then I was born here and my brother was born here and the originally came to Hollywood is funny because my. To my aunt, still live in the scene apartment building that they first came two years ago. Wow. Yeah. Crazy Ray. At one point they were invited to purchase the apartment building in the apartment building is near the border of Hollywood end those fees. Okay. Feeding in La. has become a hot property location where values of homes and apartment buildings and everything has skyrocketed anything boulder but I don't know ten times more than it would have been years ago. So it's interesting because back in the day they turned it down. To permit building because I think at one point, they were renting three different apartments or for I mean everybody has like a little apartment in that building. So that's part of why the owner was like. Would you guys up to purchase it and I think a fear? A fear is not knowing the rules of this new country, what they were getting into and people were. I remember my mom being like Oh no no I think that's too much for us to handle its and they could have actually afforded it back. Then they all would have pulled their money. So the moral of the story is I would be a millionaire. I. Bought this apartment building that's on the corner near the border of Hollywood near Lexington ear Hollywood handle species have you talked to them about it? No you know what? I haven't in years I remember low and I was like twenty over twenty years ago when I was in college, I was starting to learn about like wealth and property and how property gets handed down development of wealth over the years I remember then saying something to my aunt into my mom and be like you guys have an amazing opportunity where you could purchase the apartment building a two of my ex deliver to the state and they were looking at the time. You know that was a lot of money for us at the time. We couldn't see how can make that happen. So yeah all my God as these shadow. So that's so interested in like looking back like how with the story be different, right? Yeah. So if would have been me, I would have been like, let's pull our money and let's make it happen. Now no one was gonNA predict necessarily that see ray s off of a place. Yes has it has become but either way you just know if you're GONNA set for the next thirty years, it makes sense to own the building if half of the people renting or your family. Because you can count on them and the you know. Yeah. So it's interesting. Yeah. Now how the area has changed because it's going through like an urban renewal and so there's all these hippies moving like yeah gentle ricky gentrification. Oh. That's crazy. So you've been California at Your Life I've been in California my whole life except I lived in Spain for about nine months. Okay. Senior your college how did you decide that you go to college? So I I went to a community college. I didn't do all that great in high school. I was very distracted with. With, having fun and socializing a lot again. But it's interesting because I did really well in elementary and parts of middle school, and so I knew I had the capacity to do epidemically. In fact when I met up with people that I used to go to elementary school with they were like Oh. My God. But you wouldn't smartest people in our caused or you used to get straight They remember me getting awards for academics. So I knew I had the capacity to do But in highschool got really lost I got really depressed at tie-ins. There was just you know problems with friends or boyfriends or might focus was health sweat So I didn't actually focus that much on academics. So in typical in their community college which I loved and met some amazing friends that are still friends to this day and I think something's sparked in me that I was like, okay, I gotTA. Get my act together I got to figure out what to do to get together, and for that to happen I was like I got a transfer actually get on the and I saw people that were at the Community College for like ten years. I do not want to be that person I do not want to be twenty, seven and stuff. Can you call junk that there's anything wrong with that but for me I was like, no, I need to go to you know I need to go to college college and fell in love with Ucla Gone Eliot Matisse Salad, for Undergrad.

The Knowledge Lost in Information
"Every single day approximately five, hundred, million tweets are tweeted. Four million hours of video is added to youtube and four point three billion with a B. facebook messages are posted if a single person which are view only information uploaded to the Internet in just the last twenty, four hours, it would take longer than the entire span of recorded human history. The mistake is assuming that a deluge of information means that we are better informed not at all. In fact, a new report by Pew Research found that what they call quote extremely online people meaning those who relied primarily on social media for their political news are among the least informed and most easily deceived groups in America reason DOT COM described the Findings this way analyzing polls conducted from October of last year through June of two thousand, twenty pew found that just eight percent of US adults who get most of their political news from social media. Say They are following news about the two thousand election very closely compared with roughly four times as many among those who turn mostly to Cable News at Thirty, seven percent or print news at thirty three percent. The Pew study also confirmed these people self understanding when evaluated on their current political knowledge those who turned to social media for news scored lower than any other single group except for those who relied only on local TV those relying on a variety of sources including news websites, cable imprint news. scored the highest and interestingly exclusive facebook and twitter users did score higher in their knowledge of conspiracy theories such as that five G. calls coronavirus or Bill Gates plans to inject people with tracking microchips. In other words what someone finds illuminating versus luminosity largely depends on the amount of time they spend on social media. All of this underscores the fundamental myth of the information age that access to information is the same thing as knowing and that knowing about something is the same thing as wisdom and one of the choruses from the play the rock t s Eliot asked, where is the life we've lost in living? Where's the wisdom? We've lost the knowledge? Where's the knowledge? We've lost an information now he? wrote that in nineteen thirty four, what would he say about the Information Day today? How is it possible? Then in an age when the answer to almost any question we have is just a few taps or key strokes away that the least informed among us are those who do the most happening and the most typing as Elliot suggest we've confused information knowledge. We've confused knowledge with wisdom unfortunately, just shouting the truth more loudly or posting in an all caps on social media is not an effective response and fact Christians who see their job primarily is telling the truth rather than engaging people with the truth are often just lost voices among all the noise I'm painfully aware that even with my own children. One Stop on the information bus of their day, and there's a lot of stops. For example, it's far too common for parents to find the faith or moral convictions of their students completely derailed by some anti Christian claims or pseudo arguments that are just well silly. I mean, by claims that any apologised or any theologian for that matter, any coherent thinker could easily debunk in mere minutes. The answers are there, but these students are convinced by a particular set of. Voices, and they're not hearing the others even more often however students or just preoccupied with digital diversions that replace a hunger for finding truth without us. Huxley called an Appetite for distraction. These students like all the ones that were identified by Pew is being very online need more information like a drowning man needs more water. The only real antidote as Conklin I describe in the book, a practical guide to culture is discernment. It's an ability to sort through the excessive information. To identify which true and good, and then to make choices according to wisdom of course, developing discernment is a lifelong process, but it can begin with just a few very simple but careful questions like what do you mean by that? Is this true how does the Bible speak to this? Well God be honoured will the image of God be respected? Is this a trustworthy source? Is this intended for my good and is this helping us love and care about the right? Things we identify a whole series of useful questions for parents and offer other strategies for developing discernment in the book a Practical Guide to culture and the brand new students guide to culture and to be clear though I you for this revealing survey discernment is about much more than just being better informed voters. It's really ultimately about keeping our heads above water and age that's drowning us with information so that we can be people of truth of wisdom and of love.

Jamaal Bowman unseats veteran Rep. Eliot Engel in New York primary
"Biggest upset of the primary season. So far, Jamal Bowman has unseated New York's long serving Democratic congressmen. Elliott angle. Bowman is a former school principal from the Bronx, and the race was widely seen as a contest between the parties Progressive Wing and the Democratic Old Guard the continuation of the dynamics in two years ago in New York. With the election of Alexandria. Ocasio Cortez. Jamal Bowman is here with me now. Welcome and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. So you ran on a progressive platform in one of the bluest district in the country, New York 16th. But now, you know, I want to look ahead with you. Assuming you do end up in Congress, which is what most people are assuming, Let's just talk about how you intend to work with the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House. I want to start with the fact that you ran on Medicare for all. But the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, opposes Medicare for all. So how do you expect Democrats to resolve this issue on health care? A lot of conversation. Ah, lot of dialogue, Lather debate lot of listening a lot of learning on a lot of bridging the gap. I mean, the bottom line is the majority of the American people support Universal health care, a single payer system and Medicare for all, they supported that prior to the culvert pandemic, and now that we are living with in the midst of that pandemic. People supported and higher numbers. But here's the challenge. I mean, more generally. Obviously, this is a general election year. What do you say to the argument that pushing liberal policies during a presidential election year progressive policies? Could alienate voters in swing states and swing district. I don't think they will again when the majority of the American people are surveyed and pulled on this issue, the majority of the people support This particular issue, But beyond Medicare, for all, I mean, how do you make ideas like the green New deal or de funding the police popular in moderate district's? We're living in a different country at this moment, then we were even six or eight months ago. We have over 40 million people out of work as a result of the pandemic, So we need a federal jobs guarantee under the umbrella of a green new deal. We have kids who are losing quality education town because of the pandemic. So we need to fully fund our public schools called it disproportionately impacts. Those were upper respiratory illness as it relates to environmental injustice, So we need to deal with the environmental emergency. All of the things that we've kept swept under the rug for decades are now coming to light. As a longtime educator. What do you think? Is the single most important thing lawmakers Khun do to make life better for black Children? We need to start with a process of truth and reconciliation and really reckoning with our history of racial injustice and the legacy of slavery and how it continues to persist in all of our communities, and as we craft policy and worked together, we have to also look at the implementation of that policy, not from the perspective of a Scarcity, mindset or a zero sum game. This is about collaboration, cooperation and working together the build the country that works for everyone, But can you be specific? Can you talk about one specific policy idea that you would like to push? To get passed through Congress that could actually get past. By a Republican led Senate If the Senate does not flip in 2020 We need to give people back to work first and foremost, when we talk about full over 40 million people who have lost their jobs, their happening in Republican states and districts as well. We need to finally deal with economic inequality in our country. You need to make sure the wealthy pay their fair share and large corporations pay federal taxes so that we can invest in the people of our country. Get people back to work. A lot of comparisons have been drawn between you and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, also a progressive Democrat. What have you learned watching her navigate her first term in office. Is there anything you intend to do differently? Well, I've learned that it's okay to be myself. You know, Congresswoman Ocasio Cortez eyes a tremendous leader. She's brilliant. She's fearless, going against a system of white male supremacy, a cz. She's broken a glass ceiling in that system and created species. For new conversations that center, the working class and those who are most vulnerable. So I've I've learned it's okay to be myself and speak truth to power on the issues that matter, most to the people who have been mostly forgotten.

Read a poem
"Today's tip is to build a reading habit by tackling a poem a day. Poems tend to be short, but can take you to amazing places. And so can help you find space in life for a little bit of beauty. As I talked to people about their schedules over the years I've learned that many people want to find more time to read. Along with volunteering and. Doing reading something that we know would improve our lives. But when life gets busy, it's easy to let it go. And once you let it go. Getting back in the habit can seem intimidating. Most books demand at least a few hours of time. Reading and little bits might not be very satisfying. Hence the beauty of poems. Unless you're reading T S Eliot. Elliott's the wasteland. Most poems are relatively short. You can easily borrow e books of poetry from your library through an APP like Libby, and then read through them on the kindle APP. Or. You can go to a website. such as poets dot, Org or Poetry Foundation Dot Org and find poems selected by their editors. In any case, you can get free poems on your phone quickly. And I'm guessing that you always have your phone nearby. And for the cause of building a poetry reading habit. This is actually a good thing. Notice when you pick up your phone. What do you do? Many people check texts or emails first and then look at social media APPS. As you find yourself doing this. Consciously clip to the poetry website or your daughter instead. In about three minutes. You can read a poem. A whole poem. which will give you at least some feeling of accomplishment? Whatever else you did or didn't do during the day you are the sort of person who reads poetry. Now, of course some poems are better than others. I've read through volumes from some of my favorite poets like Mary Oliver. Billy Collins Classic poets such as Emily Dickinson, and sometime stuff is awesome, and sometimes even with the vaster. Sit doesn't always speak to us. But. Poems do have away of going places that pros can't always follow. Dunwell upon can conjure up an image and a feeling. You can ponder that image and feeling as you go about your day. That image and feeling can take you outside your life for a few minutes. An elevate your experience. Putting a little beauty and to the moment. Not Bad for three minutes right. And as you find yourself finding three minutes here and there you'll start to see that you do in fact, have time to read. You just have to choose to do so. And so poetry can become a gateway to literature of all kinds. So today find some poetry. Put, it where you can read it. And, if nothing else, you'll end the day feeling like you put something a little special into your life.

New York congressman caught on hot mic at protest event: "If I didn't have a primary, I wouldn't care"
"Christina of all the Democrats in the New York City congressional delegation and officially they're all up for re nomination tonight why is Eliot Engel the wind who's the biggest target for the progressive wing who in fact in New York City New York times says is the most endangered incumbent in America well I think that you know angle is has been framed as is absentee on the job and I think that we walk around the district and we talked to quite a few voters they think that he's spending far too much time in Washington DC and is essentially lost touch with his community and his constituents over the three plus decades he's been in office and so we remember twenty eighteen and that's how A. O. C. was able to be successful by doing the hard work pressing the flesh pounding pavement knocking on doors and articulating a message in a vision for the district why should we be one of the poorest districts in you know not just New York state but in the country why should we have someone who seems as though he's more concerned with his friends and colleagues in Washington DC if not of the residents of New York and so that compounded with just a few weeks ago when congressman Engel was caught with a hot night essentially saying you know I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a primary I think those those factors all present the interesting night that we just Macy I have that clip and I'm gonna play it this is a gaffe caught on an open Mike made by angle that might be impacting this race he was waiting for his turn to speak at a black lives matter of police reform rally when he said when everyone else if I didn't have a primary I wouldn't care and here's a short sound bite of Bowman for people who haven't heard his voice reacting to angle because he hasn't run a strong campaign that's connected with the people and and is built on deep relationships and love for the community all we could do is attack can send mailers and and take this dark money and you know and run these commercials but the people know the difference to people know we're rooted in love and support and that what that will never go away so so Bridget the hot my calf I wouldn't care if I didn't have a primary there is a possible benign explanation for this in the context of the crowded stage he was on and that's that he didn't mean he wouldn't care about the issue he wouldn't care about making sure he got the microphone time if he didn't have a primary it is that when he says he meant and how big a deal has this proven to be so far if you could tell you know I think the challenge with this as of course comes after some reports about how angle was so absent from the district throughout the corona virus pandemic and so once those stories were have been out there and that that issue became an issue in this race and then we had George Floyd killed by police protests in the streets and then this black lives matter protest it it is a difficult hot Mike moment to explain away and PS why does anybody think that Mike's are non when they're in front of them maybe were radio people so we just always assume the make it a lot but like you know you would think it was not this is a long serving representative at a public event and so the the setting and the timing and and all of these factors just made for a bad situation but this is a fascinating race to watch the book the Bronx Westchester stir border and and how did the vote is going to play out on either side of this district you know I'm still seeing tweets as of now showing lines at poll sites in Yonkers earlier this morning Brian on your show when I was on and you had a voter who couldn't find his poll site we I followed up with with Bruce and he was a voter in Yonkers and he after we after we found out that the Westchester County Board of elections polls that look up function was not working we called we found out where his full site was it sounded like it was a a new location for him and then he told the board of elections after that he was going to vote absentee and then he was told much to my chagrin that he couldn't do that because the postmark deadline was for the day before and so I had to tell them no act you can still vote today so a lot of confusion up

State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation
"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there
