"I don't know deal with them now. This any I mean out pushback on that a little bit. I think it's one of those things like yes. You are GonNa absolutely deal with that. Posted that person at the post office at a at like at surprising places in locations. But I knew I think it's still worth I think. So worth pushing back if you can if you feel if you feel safe something that's not. GonNa get you in trouble or not going to get your friend in trouble and in this case I would say that the yeah the They didn't hear this firsthand. So you can't necessarily be the person at the front of the line you know like week by this person must resigned today or a year like yeah Marching drumbeat but I do think it's worth like even asking around like hey ask another person who might have been like. Did this upset you as much as this seems like. It like the idea that upset me. Yeah I didn't catch is the person who wrote in and their friend are day people of Color or I'm trying I feel like I'm like not I might might miss. I don't I was identified. Yeah Okay Cool. I don't think something I could see is like I Is Maybe Like I don't know 'cause I kept thinking I was like. Oh I wonder if maybe like I've had moments like as a black woman as a black when my fiance says I start every sentence times more sometimes? I felt like maybe unsafe or hesitant to speak up. Because I was worried is going to be some sort of like Like penalty to pay or something like that so I don't know what the situation is with a friend but I wonder if the friend has any reason to feel afraid to speak out and maybe if you are more privileged than your friend in that way then maybe like you could like volunteer to do it with mom or like. Yeah to Eric's point like do some investigating and find out like look is temperature on the topic But yeah if you feel like something that you could safely do. I don't see any reason why not to say something I do. Think where do you think is a good unfortunate hard Useful learning experience is sometimes like you may say something or blow the whistle and maybe some people might care. You might get a great result but You're not always guaranteed like it might go really disappointingly and badly and that in of itself is like a pretty sobering real world lesson that your shirt encounter more times in life. Unfortunately but not like. This guy isn't likely to have to apologize. You know like it's more so they they won't see anything if it happens like It's more of just like the Gaga's called it so they office and it's like you know you can't quite do that and now is probably what happened. But but that's still worth it you know. Yeah yeah it's kind of. It's something that we talked about a lot with these things where it's like correcting their behavior or attempting to correct. Someone's behavior doesn't necessarily change the way they think but it does tell them. They can't do that around me anymore. So that's a small small win. What are you around me into a classroom full of children around all the youth that you're supposed to be setting an example for the other thing I think about too is like any there sometimes. Like never underestimate again. I do not know the background of the young people that we're talking about but speaking from my own experience never under estimate the power of an upset black mother Who like somebody's done something racist to their child at school? My mom there so fast like they're so fast but I mean it might be worth like you know maybe something to talk to a parent about like if there's like an adult outside of the school that you feel like hey. This thing happened Adult outside of school that you trust who like is in a position he to speak to a teacher in a different level than you could as a student. 'cause that is some shut that my mother would love to would have loved to young a. Man. You've gotta hit us with a story what you got to give a story. What she what she come down there about. When I was in the eighth grade. What happening over I liked by teachers. We had this morning. We had to have a conversation about affirmative action. When I was in I think the seventh or eighth grade and there was one girl in the class. Who was like you know? I mean I went to school with mostly children. And she was like my sister She was supposed to get into Harvard and she didn't get it in her best friend. Who's Puerto Rican did get in and that's why affirmative action is bad as her friend because she's four. Rican and this was like a like a classroom conversation that like the teacher was like like how do I put it? He's out of that debt. Like what I call now. Devil's advocate just being devil's advocate typing except with a bunch of like twelve year old and it was just like such A. It was a rough conversation like I was. Maybe one of only one or two kids in the class who is just like this is like meant to like a this is like an adjustment. This is a very tiny adjustment for like four Hundred Years of American history. Like this most drops. I knew that when I was a kid And so like I had a really like. It was just like a really stressful really upsetting conversation of just like a lot of it felt like a lot of kids. Were just sort of talking around me and like a lot of that sort of I don't know what people call a few years ago economic anxiety like a lot of sort just like outright like totally cool in that conversation and I went home and I told my mom that I felt like I have been swallowed up by a confederate flag and so my mom was like not doing that so she like went all she talked to. The teacher said that he did a really bad job of monitoring that conversation. And Yeah just didn't know how to have it appropriately. With kids of that age mom lit a fire. And I got an apology and that was not the only time that happened but that was the time. I think that was the first time that I was old enough to understand. I'm like Oh okay so. My mom has my back like so. The teacher is not the ultimate. Do I'll be all like if I go home and I told my mom. These people are bothering me. She will change. She will change. She'll get them to change course so the yeah race thing in the world to me was win in adult was forced by another adult like our flag. Holy Shit broken she. It's like you're learning about all the webbing of Of How authority works and WHO's in charge of it's it's fascinating fascinating is very fascinating but yeah maybe maybe involving an adult like in your family or your friend to talk to their parents about. It might be a good. Yeah yeah that's that's sort of what I was going to wonder about is like it is there because the other dynamic that we hadn't been talking about is like sometimes students feel powerless or whatever. So yeah whether it's bringing in adult I've wanted to float. Does it feel if you truly feel like the administration? The teachers the adults. Don't have your back on this. What do you guys feel about the idea of like at I guess as minimum or just as damage.

Oh Yeah College. Yeah New York is your effort like everything and if you survive it you win basic survival. Congratulations yeah like you get to stay. Here is thank you get into limb greatest city in the world. Well Shit should we let? Let's let's roll a voicemail and then we can keep talking See how this goes yeah. Let's do it. Hi Andrew. Tiny guests I'm a freshman in high school and my friends English teacher. My school has a huge black leadership. Advisory Council and they held dislike. Rally thing because there assumes that our school that said the N. Word that were not lack Into they had this whole day for it and then apparently like on Monday Her English teacher was talking about how it seemed unnecessary. And how It really like. It really wasn't important and she was saying some really not great things. He's also said things in the past about like native Americans. I don't know but I've telling her as if you should do something about go off to the AC and She said Oh. I don't think about it and I'm worried she's not going to do anything about it. So what should I do to get her to tell someone or should I just tell them with four hundred like that might be problem because he's not teacher? I Dunno thinks I love show. Oh Man oh the chill dreher high school problems man. Yeah so we ran one listening to this in the future. A school used to be a building for people decided to learn. I don't really know. But they're sometimes they just go there in an adult would tell them that the N. word important bird face for trauma I think. I think that's actually the the better way to put I this. This is not that bad. For where when? I was growing up in high school allowing just complaining about like a assembly that people gathered to say. Hey if you aren't black you should not say the N. Word Nigger like that. That assembly happening alone. That's meet is a low have happened when we learned about Huckleberry Finn. When I was in eighth grade it was like orcher for that book man like I remember like the teachers would say like you know you know. This is a written in a different time. So when you see this word you you it's in the tax you you have to read it and this it's just a different time and I'm like Oh my God you have to can't wait. They're like awful. Can't wait there for path. Worked for Kit Freshman. I think well I think regardless of whether or not you were in that class. I think if you heard it you feel about about it. I mean it's it's it's worth saying. I don't know that I. I wonder who you can act. Who the best person to report a teacher too is. I don't know we had. We had teachers with a confederate licensed by all the time. So it was just like. They're just new by that. That coach you know. We don't engage him in conversation. We had one black in the back of the classroom history. Oh Yeah Yeah I mean. That's the Real Michigan shed. I'm I'm also Michigan and slain are. Yeah from over from how? Yeah Yeah like twenty five hundred doing ahead Pan. No this is this is for TV. Only all our way air. Eric where are you from? I'm from Memphis Memphis Tennessee. And it's like I mean the thing about Memphis It's really nice as like a lot of Like it's a city so it's like a majority black city so there is a lot of stuff that actually like won't fly. You know or at least when I was younger. They like wooden fire. Still have things. Kinda just pop up all right you know right forgot. South still racist struggling. Yeah but no. It's it's actually. It's come a long way it's I. It's very much can see this situation and Kinda happening where you know you would. They would have the assembly now. Still Kinda have the teachers grumbling about it. And that's what you have to push back against. Is there anything? Is there anything to the idea that it's like you know? Let like getting involved in a thing that you know. You didn't maybe didn't have first hand knowledge of or firsthand experience with like the Tim. Either I don't know I I sometimes wonder if like we. By virtue of the show encouraged people to like stress themselves out about shit. That's why do think about or line. You mean yeah you know it's like it doesn't have a tinge of like a hearsay kind of a vibe to it you know it's like my friends teacher said that the teacher said this like. I can't remember in the voicemail of the students said that they were present for it but also but it does sound like the students aware of some other comments. The student the teacher made. So it's Kinda like I I have I. You guys ready for slightly unpopular opinion. Feel free to shoot it down. I just came up with that. I I of think teachers like that are just good training for all the regular. Ask thirty figures you're going to have to encounter in the real world like you're going to have to deal with that person at the bank you're going to have to deal with that person At the post office.

"I feel great. I'm enjoying springtime. The weather is lovely. I cannot complain I know that you can. I mean I don't have anything new or interesting to complain about I finally finished the Sopranos. So that feels like an accomplishment of some kind. I guess like I feel like I'm done with ask so that's good. It was not fun but at least it's over you didn't enjoy it as one of the great shows of all time. I've never seen it turns out watching six seasons of a TV show. Essentially in one sitting is not great for your brain. Sure I I did something similar so I wanted to watch. Little fires everywhere. On Hulu but then someone told me. Oh you should read the book and I know like book is better than the movie. Twitter is very annoying but I was like well. I have time and I was looking for a new book. I read the book and really really loved it and then was talking to a close friend who said she started the show and found the show to be too stressful. Even though it was very good she was just like stressed me out and I was like Oh. I don't find the book stress at all. Then I watched the show and I consumed all of this within the last four days so I read the book and watch the entire season of the show so for anyone. Who's on the fence? I recommend doing that because the show was kind of stressful. The relationships were very tense and hostile and in the book I feel like they had a little bit more room breathe but but I found both to be very good. So that's my that's my tip. That's good I mean alternately. You could do. We both did. But just don't do it in like a five day span 'cause arguably that's not US throwing that out there any other corentin tips from from you or the gang. I have one Mike Quarantine tip is make yourself a IOS. This racist branded water bottle. Full just chock motherfucking full of in my case Nagoya knees and drive two x producers eggs alleyway and not to drink some fucking cocktails was zig standing outside. So on the PODCAST. That's mostly four and about people of color you're recommending drinking liquor in an alley current current alley specific way. Look for property owners. I what else is there anything else that. Oh and then one other tip one other tip for people. Watch THE SEASON. Finale of mixed ish which should be on your streaming service now. I don't know there's a chance that my name is on it. It doesn't matter. The point is watch the season finale of mixed ish please. Yes I had A. I had some funds. Zoom hangs with some people know. Everyone's doing this so this isn't really like a hot tip that you don't know exists. But I found it nice to talk to like old friends. I didn't talk to in a long time or who don't live here. We had a nice little hang with some friends that I'm like. Oh normally I would just be like wait until I was in their city and then we don't have a drink or something but don't know when that's happening so reached out to old friends. I recommend old friends and you might as well. I mean it is a thing where it's like if if we're just going to be on zoom or the phone or facetime or whatever the fuck with people in your town guess what you can do that with people out of town try that. Shit. Hundreds of Blake. If there's anyone who you have like a you know a relationship where you're like you haven't talked in a while you feel weird about it like this is a great excuse. Just be like hey shits weird. I'm reaching out like I feel like there's a lot of a lot more normalcy an in reaching out even if you haven't talked to somebody I think it's like yeah and if they don't WanNa talk now it means they truly truly hate you and talk very scary. I can't that I'm sorry. Holy Shit well.

'cause they're going to be time capsules of what life was like in this. Bizarre Time Andrew. Do you agree. I mean. Of course I love calling instant classic.

Yeah so absolutely no pressure. we welcome our guests Co host of the nod got Britney loose and Eric eddings. Welcome guys thank you? Do you feel pressure to make this an incredible Thome of Like a time capsule thing about is no. I would say no. We'll just because I feel like every month is a time capsule of like something that seems insane so yes. This is a time capsule to but next week will be crazier need another time capsule for that. We all know how to make it like six days. Maybe even less. If we get another like a inject yourself with Piero likes conversation at that level like people are GonNa like Pretty America. It okay almost valid for that week. This is like it's it is amazing that like now that we're actually in like real everyone realizes we're in capital. H. History Times. It's just like oh I never every time I've thought like oh. Wouldn't it be interesting to see this or that it's never interesting? Fuck now. It's it's not. It's always worse dot history moments suck like like even I think about the fact that like my fiance the other day he was like you know man he's like we've only been in here almost two months and I'm like right like but we could be here for another year and like my grandchildren's optimistically My grandchildren are going to be like ten months. You're inside every day. Drags on when you're the if I watched one more mask in sync because we don't have Andrei? Y'ALL HAVE LAUNDRY IN LA. Oh I don't mean to gloat L. A. Over New York and I normally never would but one thing we we got here is laundry. Most of the time. Most of the time I see all right. We've got laundry a little bit more and I will say. This is like the real one of the real privileges. I thought I found is like just getting in your car and going for like a pointless drive. You almost feel like it's normal. I've heard yeah was. I went down and looked at the beach for a second. And then turn right around. I was like great. I'm back that must have been so freeing for a really good sound of silence is playing in my mind right right good so not only not only are you guys in quarantine. You did launch a television show daily which is even more crazy. How's that for capital h? History to talk now. Yeah and so April six we watch the nod with Brittany and Eric Kahn. Qube and it's a daily show about black culture Monday through Friday. And you know there's a lot of there's a lot of culture in life happening right now it's it's been it's been Kinda cool. We now shoot the show from home from home. So yeah so we keep it going but It's been awesome. It's been it's been a wild time. Kinda like talking to people show is kind of taken on a little. Bit of a tenor of documenting. Kinda HOW BLACK. People have or are adjusting to this entire. You know madness that were that we lived through every day this pandemic so yeah Shows a lot more fun than that than how that stuff that's like that's like fun and like the funding silly moments that people are finding like within all of this like stress in like conduct drama but also sometimes we do actually talk about in acknowledged the stress that God's drama And then sometimes it's just like Silly Fund distraction like today we had an episode came out..

"That's not that's real. We are futurist, because you didn't give us this place in a now you took away our past. So the future is all we have do didn't like it. He was this up say starts pushing ourselves all around, and he said and being very dismissive, and what's that? And so totally said, well, now you call him my baby ugly. Why is it so important to you to get this thing made because fucking? That's why. I'm not going up. Nobody's place now at this point to be told by somebody, the limitations of their imagination, because we've seen what their imagination has seen as as monkeys to be thrown in and slavery to be. And suppressed to be outside of representation to be dismissed after you make the money. And now you're telling us, we can't see the future. No, you can't see the future. And in fact, if you see a white face, you can best believe that's a closed door. It's the black face. That's makes you think any race that you could go through it. That's real. You put they think, oh, you put Weber why people more people feel you know, like it's open to them. You know, it'll be more mainstream. No, you put a white face on it. You close the door. Because most people think that ain't for me, he put a black person on it. People are like, wait a minute. How 'cause you know that they went through hell to get there. So fuck him. You know, if you go bankrupt, you ain't got nothing. Every dime. You spend, you know is down to a meal Brent and or gas. I'm not tripping on do talking about. I'm not can't see the future. I have to see the future. I've got to survive, my now sucks. So we had to find a way to tell our story we thought we create it was beautiful. Then it deserved to live. So Tony say come on, let's go and stood up. And we left and he said, fuck it, I'll draw and he started to draw. What is now called concrete park. Wow. So like, wait. So you, you take this thing that in your mind is a TV show. And right. Then you decide to make it a graphic novel. It was about finding a different way to tell your story and we did we sent a few panels off. He sent a few panels off to Mike Richardson. Now, this is a white man, who's used to seeing creators, come to him with unusual ideas from Frank Miller to three hundred hell Boyce Cincinnati all that. And making dreams come true in a very simple form- comic books and he send us something right back and said, I'd like to talk to you about publishing this. And in two years later for say we wanted the best graphic novels in America. Wow. Yeah. Like, I know that conversation around concrete park happened a while ago. But like so much. How you describe what came after reflects this moment I feel like we're in right now. Like, I think about ISA Ray, who made the awkward black girl web series before creating insecure HBO, or, or Justin siemian, who made a trailer that ultimately became the film and later TV show. Dear white people is is this just what the game. Is now like do you have to create an rights, your own projects to have ownership of the actual trajectory of your like TV career? Yes, you had to create or you disappear. You will not be able to make it black people. And people of color shouldn't be surprised that they have do you have to do ten jobs. Yeah. But you have to do them. Well, yeah, at least four of them. Well, not just. Okay. Very good. That's the exhausting part. If you are a person that is a disruptor, then you take the aches and pains to, and it ain't easy, and it's often a very isolating lonely road. You may not breakthrough with that's courage. And I don't take it for granted..

"You're not that there was so many things I wasn't I was failing, but the one thing I could do was act. And I couldn't do that anymore. I imagined it was. There's gotta be terrifying. It was awful. I knew I wasn't doing what I was capable of. And the fear was is that I never would be able to return from cures like how, how much you feel, I other black actresses were also going through a similar thing at this time, like you're using the, the real feelings the pain anger rage that you have to channel that into these roles who I'm just curious like how much do you? I mean, how much do you think that, that might have been something that many other people were going to probably a lot of them were we were talking about his fear, just just plain fear? I think that one of the people that I at least thought had a platform and talk more about it was Oprah. I think that her acting talent was something that she was trying to make sure that, you know, she was on par with other people. You know, it's like, because she was coming from being a host, where would she have to go to hits those notes as an actress, and at least I appreciate it, that people were interested in asking her. When I tell you people didn't ask black women nothing. They certainly didn't think that we had a process, and by the time they started to think about it like anti Bassett was getting her ask warped in what's love. Got to do with it. And Halle Berry was just getting the Oscar and start to really see us as the force of nature's. We are we are because we often took those really hard rose the hard roll. Aren't that usually the male role the rolls? They give the hard work to are usually black women and women of color, you will be destroyed in that row now because that role is everything that they put on blackness. So then they always come to you. Oh, you'll the center of the show, what that meant was. Thank you very much. We'll pay you very little to do the most you definitely don't have process. Exactly. Because you're just automatically magical and full of soul. You give away a piece of yourself in everything. It's like you shit a skin. And you hope that, what's underneath is ready to be. You know, felt in touched and often it isn't because you haven't examined yourself. Who I mean, what you're saying is exactly right? Like Angela Bassett for example, when she played Tina Turner, you heard a celebration with a role, but you didn't necessarily here in depth discussion of our process in all the work that actually might have went into accomplishing that I want to know how she got her muscles in how she does a dance move your, bud your arms length grass so soon after that just to kind of orient us in time by the early odds. You know, those two networks where most of the black characters on TV were UPN and the WB they merged and became the CW CDW star making shows fair were mostly mostly white teen. Dramas. Yes. So, yeah, if you were witch or, or a bad girl, who is rich, you, you were suddenly, you know, in vogue, and no, it was it was over that was, it was over. It was over. So they say. Successfully segregated television after the two thousands, and that was crazy because we had created we had made billions for them and had been successful. It just shows you how strong like if racism is a rubber band. It would like to go back to its original position. And it's interesting too, because you mentioned it didn't s it wasn't necessarily like these shows weren't doing well, like, you know, an excellent. Yeah. And so it doesn't necessarily seem like there's a like some sort of strong monetary thing. It seems my choice was from syndication on living single..

Quickly became like one of the breakout stars of the show. So as living single ended its run, I think everybody was like, oh, mayor would is she going to do next. Right. We're is her voice ter-, but most people didn't know is that there, this kind of massive shift happening in TV and, and so, like, towards the end of the nineties, all these well known, primetime black TV shows are starting to wind down, and they're not getting replaced with any new black TV shows. And so for me like growing up, washing all this stuff, it was kind of confusing like, slowly, but surely all those shows are going away. And I'm just like like, you know, where's the replacement? Having to here. I wanna why like some of the shows that those shows got replaced with I liked you know, like the WB for example, they used to have a whole concentration of black programming. They killed a lot of them replace. It would Dawson's creek. I was a massive Dawson's creek fan. You know, I watched that stuff, but I also wanted those other show doesn't seem like it has to be either or it shouldn't be right. And it's odd because a lot of these shows were ratings juggernauts, like living single, was that it was a highly rated show. And so for Eric Alexander that her in this weird bind where everybody's like yours breakout star. But there are no roles for you. You know, comedic, dramatic otherwise. And so this was something I kind of observed in a lot of people like talk about like. It didn't make sense to me that people with that much talent would just disappear. Like there had to be a story there. So, so you talk to Eric Alexander about all of this. And that's one of the things that I remember thinking as I was listening to the interview was, how nice it is to, like, hear somebody who's got their own really interesting personal story. But it's also said against the backdrop of this larger sort of cultural context thing, that's happening in entertainment. And she has this sort of inside view on this moment in time, which was really interesting to hear. And then, you know, she really lands it with that final store that you tells about. But I'm getting ahead of her. We'll we'll we'll, we'll get to that when we get to that. But we're gonna kick it off by playing the interview that you did quick warning there is some squaring in this episode. And I think we're going to do is pick up the interview where you Eric and Erica start talking about some of the early roles Erica. God is a black actress rules that she said, she felt just reinforced stereotypes gino's any trains and types of things that you might have been applying for like any character time until the prostitutes, the slave, the foster kid. Those are my three first rolls. I'm not even kidding you. I was. Yeah. There's bingo card check check check check. But you will not the orange new and that was the problem, the because black people were not seen as things to be saved cherished and are regarded as a object of desire, and I was not only black. I was dark skin nappy hair, so anything that I did had to be usually very serious, or I was crying or suffering in, in that sucked. What was the role that you wanted to play that you could have drained plan? I wanted to be a Juliet. I wanted to be the things that I saw on television growing up. I wanted to be, you know, gidget those roles didn't exist and they barely exists now like people. But if they do, it's because it's been a long hard road of sort of appealing to the I dunno less to the narcissistic, nature of the white male gaze shore and more to the. Inclusive nature of what it is to be woman, and more importantly, what it is to.
The Science Of Being Transgender
"Know? One. What makes us the gender that we are. While science doesn't know for Shaw, we do know that a lot of this is now Janes and the best evidence. We have tells us that this is not a choice, you are the gender. And sometimes it doesn't match you genitals to if a kid says they're transgender. What should you do? Well, let you explore who they are. If they want the hair or let it grow out, that's fine. And if they're about to puberty, so the adult about puberty blockers and three if you decide to change you body with homeowners and surgery will you regret it the best evidence? We have says that very few people regret getting surgery or taking homes. There is one big risk though. And that's t Phillipi particularly for canes who go straight from puberty blockers to home owns. Still though while they might be some risks with changing body with home owns scalpels 's something much scarier is looming over transgender, folks. And that's suicide a survey of molten thirty thousand transpeople found that forty percent had attempted suicide in their lifetime. That's way, high than the general population. It's nine times higher. He's cocoa. Maya the transgender population has the highest rate of suicide attempts of in the demographic in the United States. And what we're learning. Now is that being transgender in itself doesn't seem to be bad for your mental health? Tens out what is bad via mental health is the way trans people are often treated, they get bullied kicked out of their home and attacked and the science is telling us that this mistreatment. That's the biggest problem for transgender. People. It's not homeowners or surgery. Not surprisingly when people don't get treated like garbage and makes a big difference. I think the best thing about transition was having my family and friends support me all the way through it. And having my priest from the small town, Texas, write me a letter about how brave I was and say, I was always welcome in church. Yes. Hormones are important and awesome.

We have Eric Eddings co host the not what's up and host of startup. Lisa chow. Hello. I was especially curious about leases career pot. So I asked her a question that ended up being kind of revealing. Lisa. What would you tell you'll youngest south when you starting out your career? What are you tell my younger self? You know, it's funny because when I saw when I became a journalist I feel like I went in with my eyes wide open because I graduated and I was an applied. Math major and I had really investigated all different types of jobs to go into. I actually did forty informational interviews. Yeah. With different alumni from my college from accounting to investment banking consulting, the UN working at the State Department being a teacher just a whole range of careers. And then the journalists like connected most to. Yeah. I really liked the journalist I talked to. And then one guy was just, you know, hey, you know, I can call an editor that I worked with twenty years ago to see if you would be willing to offer you a job and he did that. And then I went up to New Hampshire. The job was at a small newspaper New Hampshire, and I never written an article basically for my college newspaper or anything like that. And I went up in interviewed with him. And he gave me the job. Yeah. What was the fest article you wrote full them? Oh, jeez. It was probably about some board meeting because I was covering six towns in New Hampshire and Maine, and the I think I probably went to a meeting and covered a traffic light. So you a debate on whether we should put a traffic light at this intersection. And it was a community that had very few traffic lights. So it was incredibly contentious. I mean, what are you thinking at that point? Yeah. No. It was crazy. I loved it. I don't know. It's just like the small gears in public discourse. It was fascinating to me. It was it was very strange. I mean, I was probably was the only Asian within a thirty mile radius. But yeah, I loved it. I loved it. It was crazy. I was just felt like I was in a foreign land. But I was just in Hampshire. So what would you tell your youngest self than I think, I would just say enjoys a ride. It's exciting. Fun. And you're gonna learn a ton. That's the thing as journalists. It's like you learn so much. It's like you have the luxury to ask any question. You want of anyone? That's crazy. It's amazing. Eric has happened to you. Somewhat at you like, wow, I get us this question. Yes. We had lavar Burton on the show, and he told us he was proud of us, and like that was probably one of best career moments of my life.
