Ledecky Not Retiring: 'I'm at Least Going to 2024, Maybe 2028'
"My last word is going to start with Katie Ledecky, who won another gold medal this time and the women's 800 M freestyle, So she's got four total from this year's Olympics. Two golds, two silvers, and she did a postgame post swim interview. Where she told us that she is not done yet. That's not her Last swim, she says. She's going to go to 2024. Then maybe 2028. Which is just absolutely miraculous. And why wouldn't you at this point when she absolutely dominated in the 800 m relay, like I mean, this is certainly not the last race that we're going to see her in. But getting ready for Paris in 2024. I'm very excited to see what Katie Ledecky can can bring to the pool, and she's been phenomenal Storyline her Caleb Dressel Dressler, like You know, Olympic Swimming has been such a fun event. I think because The let down in a lot of sense, with Simone Biles and and the stuff that she's dealing with with in in what that's done to the overall landscape of women's gymnastics, like swimming is very much been, like, all right, We're right here like we're going to take the viewers for that, and we are going to become like what the center stage event is, at least for the time being before track and field starts and all of that, But Shout out to Katie Ledecky. I mean, she's been an absolute monster. And I'm thrilled that she thinks that she's planning at least to go for sure to 2024 in Paris and then maybe consider 2028. I mean, she will certainly be quite a bit older at that point, And as we know, age plays a big factor and what you can do in the pool and up till a certain point, But I wanted to get into Simone
Carl Levin, Michigan's Longest Serving US Senator, Dies at 87
"First elected to congress in nineteen seventy-eight michigan's longest serving senator chaired the powerful armed services committee. He was very active around civil rights local development and protecting american workers having interviewed senator levin and read his memoir. Getting to the heart of the matter. I have some reflections. I imagined that if senator levin had a role in a television show he'd be fictional president. Jed bartlett's closest ally in the west wing practical and patriotic levin's thirty six years in the upper chamber as a democrat had paradoxes a democrat who investigated spending and financial excess in government as well as wall street a staunch believer as chair of the senate armed services committee. That america has a strong role to play in the world but voted against the second iraq. War levin was consistent with himself. He was a man who spent decades of politics. But i sense. He felt good about his impact when he saw himself in the mirror. Getting the heart of the matter reminds me of the writings of ben franklin. The similarities with the founding father aren't just physical appearance surprising wit and clearly understandable style both levin and franklin shared the belief that the long game mattered that even if it wasn't politically popular in the moment moment to make things happen in a country with a lot of people with differing views. You shouldn't always take everything off the table for your opponent that making is how democracy actually works his memoir is a blueprint without saying it and how we might put the broken engine of american democracy back together again. Levin rhetorically lays the parts on the table. I won't get into all of them. But they include the broken filibuster where he called out his own party for creating it then in order for an electorate and your colleagues to trust you you need to have a consistent northstar and compass and he's right if you look at the popular senior senator from vermont. The reason that he gets photo shopped everywhere sitting on a chair isn't because of any particular political stance it's because whether they agree or not people connect with him because they believe that he is who he says he is.
The Department of Justice Abuses Its Power Over Texas and Georgia
"But just to further point out what's going on that the Department of injustice Here we have Georgia punches back national Review and spirited motion to dismiss Department of Justice, Election Integrity lawsuit so you can see it's actually Merrick Garland. And his happy band of comrades who are interfering with federalism who are interfering with the authority of the states. Isaac Sure, the state of Georgia filed a motion to dismiss the Department of Justice lawsuit aimed at its new, much malign The pattern Here is the outrageous rogue Nissen Villiger and illegality of the Department of Justice. Much malign election integrity law. SB 202, calling the legal action a politicized intrusion. Into the state of Georgia is constitutional authority to regulate the time place and manner of its election. So The one hand we have garland interfering with Texas. Now we have, um, interfering with Georgia. And by the way, they've also made a threat to the states that are conducting audits of the past election. He's making another threat. So basically Merrick Garland is the general counsel to the Democrat National Committee. As are the happy band of comrades. At his department. Georgia Secretary of state Brad Raffensperger. Concurred. They Friday interview with National Review that the left had an agenda that they were going to push regardless of what the state's legislature did no matter what was passed. They were going to be against it in the DOJ, just in effect, parroted what was already out there. With the misinformation, the disinformation. What you saw is the Stacy that Stacy Abrams and her allies two weeks before the bill was even passed. What? Jim Crow two. Oh, two, and they hadn't even finalized what the reading of the bill
The Three E's of Podcast Production with Matty Staudt of Amaze Media Labs
"Just a little bit on. Why podcasts work. And this is something i call my three isa podcast production. The first one is empathy. You know we do these. Even when their thought leadership podcast a one on one interviews empathy is super important. We want to create an intimate experience with storytelling. So that's that's something that all great podcast do. The second one is teaching something. I'd like to say even if you're listening to two guys telling jokes in their garage for an hour and a podcast. You're learning something so Especially with brands. A lot of what they want to do is to educate people on the brand values on on getting maybe their thought leaders out and showing some of the things that they do so education is really important part of all of these things that we make and finally entertainment if a podcast isn't entertaining. Nobody's going to listen to it and that starts with the sound so creating great sounding podcasts. That are easy to listen to headphones. That are inviting and to make you wanna come back sourcing. Great hosts making sure. The guests are great. Everybody's prepped on these are all really important parts of making a wonderful podcast for a brand and especially when you're trying to make podcast for for some of these bigger brands. You know you want this to sound as high quality as possible.
The Republicans on Infrastructure Working Group Are Purely Outliers
"The nine, said Republicans that served on this so called bipartisan infrastructure working group. Include Richard Burr. How did he stay out of prison? I'm just curious.

Portman, Romney rounds Tell us Is that the heart of the Republican Party? Ladies and gentlemen, is that the heart of the base of the conservative movement? I don't think so. These are all the outliers pretty much Senator Johnson told Breitbart in an exclusive interview that Senate Republicans that cooperated with Democrats on infrastructure would only be complicit in enabling the Democrats Leftist agenda. Tim Scott said he had to vote known events in the bill because lawmakers had yet to have a draft of the legislation. More than about for you Watch it. You watch this Cornyn and others. Maybe you won't. Maybe he'll surprise us. Mayor McGuinness, the president. The committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, said in a statement that they're deeply concerned the legislation is not fully paid for it contains many budget gimmicks to make it appear less expensive. That's just the Republics in Washington. They have no idea what's swelling around them. This American Marxist, They have no idea they don't care. They should be fighting like hell. Tie the money is any money? Preventing the N A F T from from destroying our school systems. Insisting on securing our borders. There's nothing in here about it's all all the cherry pick. Things are in here that the Democrats want. Oh,
Why Black Media Avoids Larry Elder
"I am wondering. In regard. To regard to larry elder the la sentinel. Is the local black paper in southern california and to the best of my knowledge. They haven't written one article about his running little interviewed him black. The black left cares as much about blacks as the white left. Does which is to say not at all when when you come to realize these things your life changes any one of these is in piff. Unie life-changing epiphany the left is the only place of systemic racism in the united states. The black left and the white left both have contempt for blacks and use them. Larry elder actually wants help blacks and so he shut out of the mainstream. I e left wing plaque media. That's it his magic wand. Question is the question in the united states at this time. I'm paraphrasing. I believe i. I'll get right because the gist is easy to remember. A magic wand is waved over the united states and every vestige of racism in white people is super naturally removed. What problem that blacks face will therefore be removed. Will the seventy percent of black kids born to an unwed. Mother change if if god himself extirpated. Every vestige of racism from every white in america would change anything with regard to being born into a home without a father the single biggest crisis in black life. That's why they they shut him out.

That might sound like an overstatement now actually. Sometimes i struggled to get those sentiments across to my children who spite of is still going on in spite of all the horrific vitriolic stuff you might see on line and sometimes even being sending public still. It's impossible for my children sometimes to appreciate exactly what i experienced. As a child on what people of my generation experienced as a child in fact writing it felt slightly traumatic. Because i went back to a time when i knew that there were individuals out there who wanted to kill us. And that's not an understate overstatement by any stretch of the imagination because we knew about the racist attacks that led to the deaths of people out of ally in the east end of london later on during my lifetime could this guy. He died again because of his race and we knew people were hospitalized. People often permanently damaged immuno physically mentally because of these attacks and of course i witnessed attacks on people myself and narrowly escape them. You know by the skin of my teeth.

Everyone is very serious. You're in a beautiful hotel that like you would never be in in any other reason except for this kind of situation like a gorgeous restaurant or something. And you're with a bunch of colleagues and they're presenting sligh's about like mole removal or serious acne lavarice until then and someone's coming in the miss. Are you done with your expertise and you're there and you kind of just kind of can't believe like this whole situation like my parents don't know that i'm at the four seasons right now or the saint regis looking at mole like nobody in the world right now. I'm sitting here. And i'm deadly serious. Yeah sometimes the being out on the street takes itself varies yes like it's just kind of surreal situation. That kind of thing happens all the time. Never like my wildest dreams that i ever think that i'm going to be sitting at the saint regis. I remember this one event and it was at remember those nightclubs in the far west like twenty s. I can't remember the name of the nightclub. It was for axe body spray and they were launching their first body wash moment. What was that nightclub. Mckay is. I think it might have been marquee..

"Fingers and toes everything. Yes yeah. I just grabbed him and held onto him. I did just didn't want to quit hugging him. I think it's an interesting thing because you said the same thing that pam said about john we don't want to let him out of our sight and now these are both teenage boys. Yes yes yeah. Well i've already told him. I'd like to go to school with him and he didn't quite is back in school yet. I know we'll be back in school soon. You let it go to school soon as soon as we talk to counselors okay. Will you allow him to continue to ride the school bus. We haven't even thought past that yet. Have you asked him what happened. Now do you intend to ask him what happened not directly but as he opens up we might. We might ask the question or so for the most part. We're just gonna let him take tell. You are not tell you right. I sat down with him the other day and told him that he could talk to about it anytime. You wanted to add his own on time and he said he really didn't say anything. He just shook his head. Okay the question that everybody in the country was asking about shawn. Hornbeck is the same question about ben. Did you ask him. Why didn't you call us now. We haven't we haven't explored any of that yet. We just we just want him to feel comfortable. I okay dr. Clint verizon is a former fbi profiler msnbc analyst and author of the book facing down ego and We just heard recently that he also was snatched for a brief time as a child. And you did not tell your mother until two years ago. Yeah i waited. Because i think like many other kids. I had violated a cardinal rule. I was seven years old. I was walking down the street to get a newspaper. Like i did every day. Awful block away in the inner city. And i was fifty seven years ago when i remember seeing this guy come out of my peripheral vision. Came up and he said hey little boy. We elect to see cease newborn puppies. Sure. i'd love to see that cardinal cardinal way to take a child. Yeah i went with him. He took me through a couple of houses back into a garage slam the door. I looked around no way out. He demands that. I perform a sexual act on him. I didn't know what he was. Talking about oprah seven. Yeah yeah any any lunged up. And he came at me whether he was drunk dumb or stupid or a combination thereof. He missed and i went around him a hit the door to door open. Thank god i'm through the door. I ran and got the newspaper. Iran home and i never told my parents and recent i didn't was because i'd violated a rule and i thought i would. I would get in trouble and there. I was at seven. I left that guy on the street to do that to another child. And i never told anyone because i felt i was wrong that i was the one who had done something wrong instead of him. Well do you understand. You know everybody in the country analysts are discussing whether this is one central more another syndrome. Do you understand why. Then you wouldn't call home. Sure why why is the key word because if we ask somebody why that automatically makes them defensive you know you're going to hear analyst on television myself included that are getting get caught up in psychobabble. They're going to say stockholm syndrome identification with the aggressor post traumatic stress reaction. Yes now the bottom line is if you're eleven or thirteen and you've got a potentially six foot four three hundred pound aggressor. Should this man turn out to be responsible for this. I mean all of a sudden he'd physically dominate you and then he sets himself up to substitute himself for the two of you. I mean i. I've got three children. We love them. We nourish them. We care for them and all of a sudden this mountain comes between us and our child and says i will do these terrible things to you to your family. We get all of these threats. I mean these things if you wanna talk about trauma that's trauma and you know what you do. You do what you have to do to survive. Sometimes and you know i guess i would say to the world having been there. Yeah as both a victim and an fbi agent investigating these is give. We need to give these two kids slack and let them have time to find themselves. Let them create new memories. That's what you guys are doing. You're helping your son create new memories. I was gone four minutes. Your son was gone for days. Sean was gone for years. They each need to create new memories. But i've never seen stronger people than you've had today oprah on your show and so this is interesting though i was asking this of shawn's parents suppose he never wants to tell you only gone four minutes abducted for four minutes. You waited fifty years to tell about it absolutely. I think part of it was. There's an element of shame. There's an element of responsibility. I think that's the thing we need to teach our children. Tell us anything so if you have an open relationship with your child and you say you know i know some horrible things must have happened to you but you we are your family and you can tell us anything and we will be there for you because we are your family and no matter what happened no matter what happened when you were abducted it is not your fault. You did nothing wrong. You did nothing wrong. Saying what's wrong with saying that you can but i think you guys have you said whenever you're ready to talk you can talk to me. But that's the thing we don't want to do is say why. Why didn't you call. Why didn't you pick up the phone. I mean why. Don't you dial nine one one because he was traumatized because he was fighting because he was in survival mode. You know there are there are emotional handcuffs. There are psychological problems. We can be in without bar mental bars. That are stronger even than physical. And that's what these two boys experienced forty-one-year-old michael devlin the alleged kidnapper of the two missing missouri boys remains in jail. Initially devlin had been charged with one count of kidnapping thirteen year. Old ownby. yesterday he was additionally charged with kidnapping and armed criminal action in the two thousand disappearance of shawn hornbeck his attorney statement and they just send us a press release part of which says that. The facts of this case will be revealed at the appropriate time and place until then they ask that mr devlin's constitutional rights be respected and they urge fair-minded individuals they say to renounce premature conclusions of guilt and refrain from any misrepresentation of the facts. So michael they say. Michael devlin understands the gravity these accusations against him together. They say we desire to allow the judicial process to run. Its course that is their statement. What needs to happen. Is the laws have to change. And this is the one of the most perfect examples as you were saying. Should this man be guilty of what he's charged. This is a perfect example of a need for one strike law. Anyone who offends against the child a woman a man kidnapping sexual assault. They go away and they never see the light of day again. One stripe and not just once and that should be uniform in every state in every state. That's what i'm going to work toward. I want to just say that. So many times we hear stories about the police officers. What police didn't do with the should have done. And here's a great case of heroism. Ism coming from the gut wide. Like officers chris nelson and gary webster kirkwood police department there in missouri to stand up one more time. Thank you thank you. I'm oprah winfrey.

"And love. Your parents were saying that they never certainly you know. Since you're disappearance. They've been working with other families. Lost their children their children disappeared and certainly they never would have hoped that somebody else would have a missing child but been going missing really made a difference in you being here today. Do you think that Yeah i would think if it wasn't for been i might not be here right now. I might have be on this show. I might not be with my mom and dad right now. Can you tell us what you thought when you first saw. Ben don't answer it. Don't want to answer that okay. Can you tell us what you now feel about. Being thankful he held in for those couple of days. And i'm sorry for where you went through. Because i told myself long time ago i never want any other kid. Go through what i went through his. I mean knows what it's slight. And but i am thankful for for holding in there. I'm happy that he's back with his family. Do you think that you'll be able to get back to normal life at some point. Yes or hoping filling hoping soon because as you know the whole country wants to know what happened how this happened and so forth and your parents say that at some point. They're going to wait on you to tell them. Do you think you'll ever be ready to talk about it on some point. I'm sure i will be well right now. We're just glad you're alive and well and still cute. Thank you thank you well audience. There are still so many questions that i know you want the answers to. I wanted the answers to even as parents want the answers to but in doing this interview i agreed to respect certain boundaries and not ask questions about what went on during the four year period and let them handle that between themselves and a therapist one of the questions. The whole country wants the answer to that. I did not ask on. Camera of sean. Because i wanted to respect those boundaries but did ask sean privately. Why did you not call or contact your parents and he said to me. He did not because he was terrified to so shawn. Hornbeck is here today with his family. Sean stand up so everyone can welcome you home. Fifteen euro mitchell hopes was one of the last people to see ben ownby last week before he disappeared near his home in missouri.

"The last thing i had heard. I'm sorry the most wonderful news i can just imagine. Look i can just imagine so. Tell me what it was like when you first saw your son's face who than saw him. I did you seem together. We went under room together. I think i did go on i. I'd go into room. I and sean lee stood up. And i had no doubt in my mind. I mean because craig did make the comment to me. You know it has been four and a half years. He's as pam. How are we going to know. And then he looked right at me and he says you're going gonna know. I said i said yeah. I'll know mainly. I walk in that door slow as soon as we got an induced up. I said oh my. That's my son. And i love you. We knew right. Then you knew it. I knew it even forty years later and as much as he has changed. I knew it so when you saw him. The first thing you said to him was i love you. I love you and your home and your home. What did he say he says. Glad to be home. He said glad to be home. How is changed aside from eleven to fifteen. Obviously how has he changed the boy that you knew at eleven. It's definitely not a little boy that i had at eleven. There's going to be a lot of adjustments. We will let him over are out of her sight and he's not quite understanding that yet. I can tell that there's a lot on his mind. I can tell that. I think he will eventually talk to us and that he wants to that. There's still the distance between us. Not like it was his innocence. Gone i mean. He lost his innocence. From the time he was eleven till it used fifteen. Know the most formative years that you could have with your child. And they've lost that yeah okay. I'm going to go there and ask you. What do you think happened to him. Do you think he was sexually abused. Do you think he was. Do you think he was tortured yet. While you know there's more than one kind of torture there's mental torture physical torture. I have no doubt that you know mentally that. He's not the same boy that he was You know physically.

Other than a few people from channel advocates center did talk to us and gave us some advice. The advice not to ask him. Yes about the four years. Yes we were at asked are advised not to ask him any questions. Let him talk to us. Why do they say they don't want you to do that. When all this stuff comes out we need professionals. They're that know how to deal with that specific circumstance when we find out whatever that circumstances and there's the last thing we want to do is put him through anymore mental anguish. Yeah i think it's interesting because the public want to know the public want to know but you're sitting here with you as parents and family members. I can imagine that the most important thing to you is his well being correct but you also want to know. Well certainly we want to know and you know the world wants to know But that's not the important thing. That's that's insignificant. The important thing is sean is back home. The important thing is we can give a message of hope to other families that have missing children and we can also once again reiterate the messages about keeping your children safe and not letting them travel by themselves. Do you believe now having gone through this. That child in this country is not safe riding their bicycle. There's no way no child is safe anywhere on the street where they live. And if you look at ben i mean. He was almost to his house off the bus. He was feet away. I hear right there and it does happen that close that quick. If they were just very fortunate we were all very fortunate that someone saw something and stepped up to the plate and reported it. If that hadn't happened it could be a completely different story right now in his first interview since the rescue i sat down with shawn hornbeck the day along with his family. Hi sean again oprah nice to meet you tell me how are you feeling today. Alan really good feeling really good. Has all of this has been like what.
"first interview" Discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast
"Twenty five seasons four thousand five hundred sixty one episodes. I believe the oprah winfrey show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world Rolling never thought of it that way. The moments the breakthroughs the l. The connections the occasional. Ugly cry i missing so terribly atmos every single minute. The moments that matter i opening light lessons never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the ball. I personally chosen these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will need shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me. do you hear me. That's what i say mean anything to you. You're listening to the oprah. Winfrey show the podcast. It is a story that has been on all of our minds last week. Thirteen year old ben. Ownby was reportedly abducted just outside st louis minutes just minutes after getting off his school bus four days later detectives track bend down to the apartment of a local pizza parlor manager. He was forty one year old. Michael devlin in a shocking twist. Not only did police find bin. They also discovered fifteen year old shawn hornbeck another missouri boy who had vanished for years ago. I sat down with shawn hornbeck and his family in their very first interview. Since this incredible miracle story broke. We began with shawn's parents and his aunt. Can you take us back to the day if you will october. Six two thousand and two. How did you. I know that he was missing that he was gone when he was supposed to be home at five o'clock and of course sean always ran just low weight so we alo- late so we're always gave him lonely ways was eleven years old at the right and The closer got to five thirty quarter to six. I just had a gut feeling and my and my stomach. I turned around my husband and i told him i said sean not home i sent in. Something's wrong and so when she said something's wrong craig. Did you all immediately jump into or was well. That was when we jumped in the car and went to you. Know different places where he might have been went to where he thought that he was supposed to have been earlier in the day They said that they hadn't seen them. So when we come back home and get out the phone. Let's start making phone calls was. He's calling going to a game. He was supposed to go to a friend's house. That's when the nightmare start. That's when it really started this sink. From speaking with sean. What do you now believe happened on. That day. oct six two thousand into. We still have not had the opportunity to speak to sean about that day or the four and a half years since then The time is gonna come. We have told him that when he's ready he will speak to us. He will come does of course. We are going to be all getting therapy. Because i believe that needs to start right away. That never wants to come to talk about. What if he feels that. I never want to talk about it. That was the past linden s london. I'm gonna have to deal with Because i don't you want to know. Yes i do. I definitely do want to know. I wanna know as much details as possible as much as i can bear to know but as far as that day i believe he will talk to his eventually about it. And that's a very interesting Where'd you use as much as i can bear. Do you sense. Perhaps that he feels that whatever happened is not something he wants to share. Because he doesn't think you can bear it. Yes you do feel that you do and you're shaking your head nodding sherry. Because as he has said he doesn't want to see the sadness that his mother's is anymore and his father he wants to give them some peace and he he just wants to see him smile or so what do you think. Have you thought of obviously thought about this. What kept him from escaping. You know they're all these theories now and you hear commentators on television talking about Why he didn't theories about why he didn't. What are you ask. And what is the answer for yourself. Why he didn't escape eventually. I will ask sean manned. But i honestly and truly in my heart field that in some way or another he had felt either he was going to be threatened or his sisters or myself or his dad. I honestly believe The alleged person said you can leave at any. Given time there'd be no recourse. Everything would be just fine. Sean wanted came home in heartbeat. I honestly feel that. He felt like he couldn't because somebody's safety. Who's i don't know yet. Is that what you believe craig. Oh yeah i mean there has to be something being held over over his head something somehow to to keep him from you know from trying to leave from trying to get away There's no way in the world that if he was able to do whatever he wanted to do and could've walked away at any moment. There's no doubt in my mind that he would have. There's definitely something that that stop that from happening. Tell us how you got the call that police had found your son. How did that happen. We're on our way home from work. And we was driving down a highway. Both over cell phones go to ring in and it happened to be the prosecuting attorney's office and we had missed the phone. And actually the call went to voicemail. And when i listen my voice mail in new it was prescott attorney john rupe when he says pam. Please call me back immediately. Of course first thing you know popped in my mind okay. Oh my god what news says he has. Because i knew he had to have had some news to be calling me. Did you think maybe he was calling to tell you. They found the body of your son. That wasn't the back of my mind. I definitely have thought of that. You know and then. I had told myself you know. You can't think of that yet. We don't know and he tells you what. When i heard craig's say just a few minutes i'll have to find somewhere to pull over when he says that it was like the world just stopped and it's like okay. Why is he having pull over. You know what news the he has those that we have to pull over far and it took us a few minutes to pull over so it seemed like it was forever did you. At that time. Thinking was the worst news i did. And then we got pulled over and craig was talking to him. And then i heard craig's. He's alive when. I heard that.

Like there's so many people who are involved with high profile. Nancy that's a lot of people in jail. I d- only reason i. I mean i guess you would be empty like some people like if you're a sex offenders and there's no way you could walk but if you're a regular person and they give you a choice it's like me or do you wanna go party wanna. I want to go to the mainland. Well why would you wanna go to high power in the first place you chain them everywhere you go by just weird you sit in the fucking cade at.

I'll do five. I respect that about you. They like most rappers are really happy to get any kind of recognition from more famous rapper. You'll give us a street. So i go around. People might have money so it's like when we got clever in cities like are famous book. We do more money to have night so what. She don't impress because then he comes to. Are you famous.

You got to let us shoot the video too though he bought out here. I'm a line of play up there. We go hand them in the building. So damn though so do you feel really determined like you're going to actually make because that's what really sucks about you.

Stop go up to keep building up and then boom you. You're just get bigger and bigger. Every time i go to write my brothers. Should i start jogging. Because every time i back. Yeah maybe i don't know this is a depressing thing to go on apple music and just see called devil as the most recent release for years and to just have to keep listening to the same kind of unfortunate. You know i'm going to type that you did. You actually made a lot of noise for from your jail versus which normally people don't seem like they really give a fuck about managed to make it sound pretty grading and people are actually really fucking with it like getting good reviews more cordell and most of these people were recording studios has crazy.

I go back and forth doing policy or not even that just people basically acting like they want. They want to hurt you. I don't care they've been winning. Hurt me for a long time ago. So it's not the new is like it's been four years bro. get over it. But it's not about people being now like me bro. Like people feel like like. I always say i talk shit bro. But that's what i'd do if the shoe fits wear nigga. I'm not basically going out there saying nigga you'd this longest for you and it's on you but nigga like most necas they can't relate to this shit talk about so they feel like i'm talking about that's not my fault breath i fucked it.

That happens now when people get out of jail. It's great because that was one thing that you a pretty upset about at one point when you're really damn bad in jails down worst. Yeah rising guy.

So is there any scenario where the one reader the rule of one isn't going to be relevant? Well, we talked a lot about homepages. We look at them all the time for real or fake right back home pages are aware. It's really the hardest place to to follow the rule of one you can you can definitely follow the rule of one in terms of finding your one reader and speaking to that reads on the homepage. If you sort of look at okay twenty to thirty percent of your home page visitors are going to be in that place where they're ready to convert the rest of them have just laying there by mistake or they're brand new to your product to your service to your to the idea of you at all, right, they're still exploring their options there shopping around but if you speak to that 20 to 30% of people of visitors to your site who are ready to convert then you can sort of use that as your one reader for your homepage. Okay, so on the homepage Usually have a lot of different options right? It's more like the Hub try to help segment people or help them get to where they want to go. So therefore you have multiple calls to actions. What do you do about that when you're trying to get this one a rule of one thing going? Yeah. So I think you know, we have to emphasize empathize with our visitors, right they want to be directed and of course if we're saying 20 to 30% off home page visitors are in that place where they're ready to convert that means there's a lot of other people visiting there and we don't want to lose them. Right so we want to help them know what to do next even though they might not be ready to convert and that's what you might have a secondary call to action. So if your first call to action is about taking you up on your your kind of big offer, right whether it's driving it by now add to cart. Or start a free trial if you're like a website or something like that, you're secondary call to action might really be directing the rest of your visitors to opt into your email list. So yeah in that case, you're going to have to ctas right? I've you know, of course a lot of people also will have a third CTA which is to maybe read reviews or compare pricing things like that. I think it really comes down to you need to test but you should always know your number one goal and make sure that you're really focusing on that one goal as much as possible, even though on your page. You're probably also providing other ways for people to take action. So would I be right Meghan saying that the rule of one really starts out with getting your messaging right? Absolutely everything begins with your messaging you need to you need to really nail that down before you're going to be in a good position to optimize for conversions in any other way. So if you're not sure if you've already kind of nailed down On your messaging. Maybe you maybe you've already got that going on, but you're not sure what else to focus on or what to focus on next.

"What the hell is the rule of one Meg? The rule of one is the most important part of your copywriting? Okay, the thing that you can apply to landing pages long form sales pages and emails for higher conversion rates. So what you're saying is that it's important. It is Uber important wage eliminates distractions and it gives you the opportunity to keep your reader focused on the goal that you've set for your page or your email or whatever it is. You're writing and remember conversion marketing is all about guiding the reader to take the action you want them to take. So the rule of one keeps them focused on that action is going to be good. Give it to me. Okay. So with the rule of one you've got your One reader, right, you're not writing to a crowd of people you're not writing to like a nameless faceless horde. What about my personas? Yes, you're going to choose one Persona and you're going to flush it out way more than just where they live and how long They are and if they're male or female married kids whatever that's just demographics you're going to take your one reader and actually create a person around them like a fictional character like Weird Science. Like I'm not sure a hot babe who will pop out of the computer screen for you. Did I say hot babies at hot babe the awesome? What's really cool is that I don't think she popped out on a computer screen. What's the appeared in like out of nowhere? So more of a so. Yeah use the demographics. Yeah, right. They're they're good starting place. But you know, don't worry so much about answering questions. Unless you know, why you need to know that like do you need to know that you're one reader is married or unmarried maybe but you need to have a reason for why you need to know that otherwise don't worry about it. You want to know more of the psychographic side the the psychology of that user and the ethos Graphics, right? What they care about what their values are their behavior and why so once you've nailed down, Who your one reader is you're really in a good place to follow the rule of one the rest of the way. Okay, and so you find your one reader by doing your research you want to interview your customers you're going to do polling on your own site you're going to if you don't have customers and maybe you don't have any traffic coming to a website yet. You can do some review Mining and form mining where you sort of eavesdrop on other people's ideal readers or on your ideal reader where they're hanging out online. Listen to how they're just describing their life. Listen to how they're describing their problem and their pain the the outcomes that they're looking for the transformation. They want from a product like yours or a service like yours that solves their problem. So all that's for the one reader now with the one reader which again is the most like once you figure out everything you need to know about your one reader everything else really falls into place much more smoothly, right? Yeah, that makes sense. So like dog Big idea, they're going to help you identify that one big idea..

"What the hell is the rule of one meg. The rule of one is the most important part of your copywriting okay. It's the thing that you can apply to landing pages. Long form sailed pages and emails for higher conversion rates. So what you're saying is that it's important in is uber important. It eliminates distractions and it gives you the opportunity to keep your reader focused on the goal that you've set for your page or your email or whatever it is you're writing and remember. Conversion marketing is all about guiding the reader to take the action. You want them to take so. The rule of one keeps them focused on that action is going to be good. Give it to me okay. So with the rule of one. You've got your one reader. You're not writing to a crowd of people. You're not writing to like a nameless faceless hoard what about my personas guess you're going to choose one persona and you're gonNA flush it out way more than just where they live and how old they are and if they're male or female married kids. Whatever that's just demographics you're going to take your one reader and actually create a person around them like a fictional character like weird science like. Yeah sure a hot babe who will pop out of the computer screen for you. Did I say hot pays at? How Big the autumn. It was really cool is that. I don't think she popped out of a computer screen. She appeared in out of nowhere. So more of a so. Yeah used the demographics right. They're they're good starting place but don't worry so much about answering questions unless you know why you need to know that. Do you need to know that you're one reader is married or unmarried? Maybe but you need to have a reason for why you need to know that are. Don't worry about it you WANNA know. More of the psychographic side the the psychology of that user and the Ethos Graphics. Right what they care about what? Their values are their behavior. And why so? Once you've nailed down who you're one reader is. You're really in a good place to follow the rule of the rest of the way. Okay and so you find your one reader by doing your research you want to interview your customers you're GonNa do Polling on your site You're going to if you don't have customers and maybe you don't have any traffic coming to a website yet. You can do some review mining and forum mining where you sort of eavesdrop on other people's ideal readers or on your ideal reader where they're hanging out online listen to how they're describing their life listen to how they're describing their problem and their pain the outcomes that they're looking for the transformation they want from a product like yours or a service like years that solves their problem so all that's for the one reader that is for the one reader which again is the most like once you figure out everything you need to know about your one reader. Everything else really falls into place much more smoothly that makes sense so the big idea. You're going to help you identify that one big idea. Yeah you're not making up your one big idea. One big idea should come from your reader and it really is going to speak to the that unfulfilled desire that they have a deep desire and it's usually a bigger desire so it's not so much about a feature that they want but an outcome a life change that they are looking for. And once you know this the psychographic side this ethos side of things. Then you'd be able to give them the promise that will make them say. Oh absolutely it. That's a no brainer gas. So you really need to figure out what's holding my one. Read our back. What kind of objection do they have about taking me up on my offer right and once you know that then you know what promise you need to make to them so that it overcomes that big objection right? So you're one offer needs to match your one readers stage of awareness which we're going to talk about next time so hang tight on that one But the one offer can be your product or your service but if you're if you're readers not ready for that maybe they just make you and they're not ready to commit to buying from you then of course you're going to offer them something that doesn't require as much commitment like a lead magnet of some kind of white paper and e book things like that right so you just mentioned some really important. Kosovo often we find the wrong to action in the wrong places. So you have above the fold on the homepage. You'll have a get now our try now with. That might just be a little too aggressive. Yeah so there's there's kind of a split school of thought here like everybody loves to put a call to action with the button right in the hero section and in a sense it kind of looks successful because people like to click right. So that might get a lot of clicks. But we don't know how many people are actually GonNa follow through on a purchase or if those cliques are happening too soon before the one reader is really sold on the offer. Then you know really what's happening after that click and that's what you want to pay careful attention to so sometimes it's a good idea to have that. Cd A right there in the hero section and sometimes you just need to do a little more persuading before you offer that and now a word from US promoting our lead magnet on the conversion optimus dot com.

You can definitely follow the rule of one in terms of finding your one reader and speaking to that reader on the home page if you sort of look at Okay. Twenty to thirty percent of your homepage. Visitors are going to be in that place where they're ready to convert. The rest of them have just landed there by mistake or their brand new to your product or your service to your right into the idea of you at all right. They're still exploring their options. They're shopping around. But if you speak to that twenty to thirty percent of people of visitors to your site who are ready to convert then you can sort of use that as your one reader for your homepage on the homepage. Usually have a lot of different options right. It's more like the hub. The try to help segment people or help them get to where they want to go. So therefore you have multiple calls to actions. What do you do about that when you're trying to get this one rule of one thing going? Yeah so I think you know. We have to emphathized empathize with our visitors. They WANNA be directed and of course if we're saying twenty to thirty percent of homepage. Visitors are in that place where they're ready to convert that means. There's a lot of other people visiting there and we don't WanNa lose them right so we want to help them know what to do next even though they might not be ready to convert. And that's where you might have a secondary call to action so if your first call to action is about taking you up on your your big offer right whether it's be bribing it by now. Add to cart or start a free trial. If you're like a SAS website or something like that you're secondary call to action might really be directing the rest of your visitors to opt into your email list. So yeah in that case you're gonNA have to see. Ta's right I you know of course a lot of people also will have a third T. Which is to maybe read reviews or compare prices things like that. I think it really comes down to you. Need to test.

That's how we felt. I fell in love with you. We're all the emotions that you showed us us nicole real quick. I want to give you a moment to speak on this. Because you've been active about this on twitter you have been and i and i get this because you know there we need needs to be representative of of the diversity that we do have on the show and you've spoken out. I guess there would be people who have attacked you when when it comes to speaking spanish or trying to prove that you can speak spanish or just being latin in general and i want to give you a moment to really talk about that because you have been vocal about that on twitter yeah i mean i definitely know that i am a minority when it comes to amount of like latin women who have been in the the franchise so i do know that you know i have some responsibility. Just carry myself in to represent myself well because i know it is a big deal. I don't look like every other contestant so it is shocking or sad to see people. Just compi like oh i can't. I can't even tell the difference between bb nicole. Were just little comments like that where you know twenty nineteen. I mean that's crazy. I can't believe cutting. The people are awful yeah. It's hard to put to worse because honestly honestly been faced that much backlash over that but there were some comments some common set. I've been brave enough to call out. That's been kinda in a scary. Twitter is like a whole sometimes so i know that you know i have some haters whenever i call out certain things but i truly love of being hispanic and i love representing that community on the bachelor and i think it's amazing. I hopefully moorland girls start applying except you get more of that more latin guys and there's more more flare than you know of all minorities and that's why i was trying to speak out about it just because you're right maybe a minority in bats our nation but not ah reflective of what you're representing in in the real world and so i just want you to have the opportunity it is hard to sometimes speak out and to go against the grain but you have and you are and you are a beautiful representation of who you are just wanted to address that on the podcast because we're on this podcast. We are all about representing everybody. It couldn't agree more the amount madam messages i get from like all minorities all girls across the country who are like wow i relate to you relate to your story like i come from a similar family of immigrants immigrants and it's just an incredible thing to know that i've inspired them in there like wait.

"first interview" Discussed on Bachelor Happy Hour with Rachel & Ali â€“ The Official Bachelor Podcast
"The fight may meet appreciate klay so much. It made me realize like the kind of man i'm looking for someone who isn't hot tempered. It was just gonna react on something physically or get violent. It made me realize while i was so wrong like klay actually has these characteristics that i'm looking for for you know he's like you know. He's tame like he's mature gentleman. He processes his feelings. He's not just going to react because someone hunched opin. Oughta voiced by men did yep couldn't have said it better so you know. The guys got sent home. You know they raced for the hey. You know it's hand off and you know knowing the show. They are very serious about the contestants safety and jordan and christian cross that line so they had to go but putting that aside how did that feel for you because we obviously see you move forward with clay and i'm so glad you did because i love him so much <hes> uh-huh but how did that feel because you had a really intense connection with christian so were you sad in that moment i mean put yourself back in that moment. I know you move forward with klay but in that moment you had to be a little bit angry. Yeah i kind of wish i would have gotten that closure from both them like i wish i would have been able to hand out roses and give them a reason why i didn't choose them or like. I don't know i just like i had so much more to say that christian anti jordan. I never got that closure from either for them. So it felt like that was just taken away from me but at the same time it just made my decision so much easier thankful for it. You know we was just like meant to be when you say that you had more that you wanted to say. Are you saying like you wanted to get to know them better or you just needed to get something off your chest chest. I guess i wanted to get to know them better but honestly example <unk> like showed me. Everything turned out the way they reacted to that. Fight is exactly what i needed to see and speaking of showing people things now when i was watching and i saw christian roll up to the time that you were having with with clay i mean the red flags were just waving in the wind the way he approached that situation and try to basically you know monopolize novel is your time when he had just had you all day. Was that a red flag for you starting to kind of see the writing on the wall with him or did you just brush that situation off because i felt like that was the slippery slope or a slippery slope. That's so true yes. I was a little bit worried. You know i. I like the cockiness but i was worried. He'd be like a little bit of a macho tro like that. Is that size. He's christian much. She smokes so i was a little bit worried about that and then the moment he went up to me and clay. I just saw it. I saw like you know he's like puffing up this chest just trying to prove a point that he can have his way with me. Basically tell me what to do but you know this is paradise the rule the game is that we get date. Multiple people and i have to say so definitely was the biggest red flag. I i should've just been like no yeah. 'cause there's a line between like showing that you really care about someone being forward in fighting for them obviously not in the a physical sense but <hes> and then acting the way he acted. There's a big difference between those two things and he i guess i shouldn't say it's a fine line with him. It's a huge difference. Just didn't can handle that correctly <hes> but tells about clay. I just four him. Thanks fan. I just feel like he is such a good human being teddy. Eh i love the way he respects you like he. He didn't care about himself with christian was coming at him. It wasn't about him. It was about you and and that's actually about tyler on hennessy's tyler..
"first interview" Discussed on Bachelor Happy Hour with Rachel & Ali â€“ The Official Bachelor Podcast
"Jimmy. Can i talk to you firmament because we all know when the gods are fairy godfather. Chris hairston walks down those stairs. We know that something big is going to happen. What was your thought constructively. It wasn't oh christian's waiting for me at the top of the stairs. I thought that he was sending me home. Like saying like you know. Go home and go go. Get your woman. I had no idea i mean i literally had chocolate on my face in no makeup on and i looked a hot mess. I thought that i was is going to go up to those stairs and it would be my producers that i worked with and they'd be like hey. Let's go get your girl and you know you guys can be together if that's what you want so so whenever i saw that it was her at the top of the stairs like oh my gosh i was shaking. It was incredible. It was oh. I can't even describe it. Ah there's nothing i've ever experienced that in my life and seeing her. I know i said in the episode like that's the moment that i knew in it. Truly is like nobody's ever made me that excited in my life to see them. I bawled my eyes out when i saw you guys each other and just seeing the emotion there and it was so beautiful when you looked beautiful. I know you're saying that like you. I saw you and like i saw you in your ross form. I saw you for you. Your natural beauty beauty in your heart your love for this woman i just i thought it was one of the most beautiful moments i've ever seen on television and in life. I'm sure just as beautiful beautiful. I mean we've talked about this. Rachel unite before about how bachelor has had such a stereotypical per like relationship on the show are person. It's been like a white white guy in a white girl fall in love and that's the show it was that way for years and now finally we're starting to see differences right different people diversity in relationships <unk> ethnicity all of that so you might even a thought i mean this is what would have gone through my head if i were you. Is that oh they're not gonna have a girl with grow relationship on the show. Did you ever think that as well yeah. I thought that it might push away some of their viewers so i thought that they wouldn't take that risk..
"That. I was the first one because she was and she walked so so i could run. Yes thank you for clarifying that. You're absolutely right and can i just say that. Jamie was on the season that i was on with nick and i saw that people were commenting about that and i actually really thought about that myself and i think allie. You and i actually talked about that too. Maybe it was it was off the podcast but i think the differences and i i just wanna clarify because i'd jamie is a friend and i don't wanna make it seem like we aren't honoring what jamie did and an honoring her bravery and coming out in a way that we haven't seen in in this whole bachelor world but the difference is that you know jamie was on there on the show pursuing a heterosexual relationship for the first time we see that that's not the case and you're the first person to step out and do that but you. I love the way you put it. She had to walk so you could run. <hes> mhm exactly yes like this is the first time we're seeing physical same sex relationship <hes> and no. I never expected it. <hes> <hes> i honestly at first i was i was scared. I was a little bit uncomfortable and i was like i don't know how much i want to kiss her on on on camera like we know whenever she i there was a little i mean whenever i got there i was like i don't care all over her but you know it gets a little bit uncomfortable just because it's something nobody's ever seen before and in the back of your mind whenever you haven't been out with this many people before you're thinking about are the cameramen and thinking this is weird on the audio guys weirded out by the fact that it's girl on girl right now. It's just you kind of question. Everything and it made me very very anxious but it. I'm happy that i can at least be somebody who people can relate to that are struggling with the same things of being afraid to come out because for me. I came from a very conservative service family all my family. There's not been a single gay person in any of my family and so coming <music> out to millions all at once it was overwhelming and it was scary but my heart knew that that's what it wanted so on the show. Oh you talk about opening up to your family <hes> in that they were extremely supportive of you and they're really great..
"first interview" Discussed on Manager Tools
"For more information. Okay. So if the proponents of getting rid of one to one interviews, if they're so right about that wire, somehow executive interviews different. Yeah. So nobody ever wants to talk about this. But some VP talking to senior director or something, you're going to have an HR minder in there. I don't think so or even worse, you're only gonna have HR minders when it's a male VP interviewing a female director or something like that. Clearly in the age of me too, and male executives being hoisted on their own petard for good reason HR would say a male executive would need Proctor president for an interview with a female candidate. Right. But we don't see that we don't executives conduct one to one interviews all the time. Executives take candidates out to dinner all the time. Male female female female male. And that does doesn't matter. Okay. The only reasonable explanation other than executives overruling HR and saying, I don't want somebody who's a minder. What do you? I mean seriously is that the problem is with the interviewer. But rather with the interviewee, and if an executive's, conducting interview, the assumption is that a mid level to a lower high level manager executive would be taking a significant wrist his her career to make an accusation of harassment or file a discrimination lawsuit against someone who has significant experience, interviewing the point here is that only that HR managers who say you need a third party an interview, but exempt their executives are allowing the inference that it's not really a policy after all. Or you know what executive were good. You're not our executives know they know how to do this. When, in fact, the metoo movement, twenty eighteen twenty nine thousand nine suggests that it's executives to we don't read stories about lower level managers doing those kinds of stupid things. But I would argue that's only because that's not a juicy story for the press, but that happens, there are a lot more managers than there are executives. I would assume that's a problem as well. But if you're not going to have an executive minder I would say, as a manager, I would say, yeah, I don't I don't want that. Yeah. And it's got that they're suggesting a minder in one situation, others, just raise the question, whether they'd have policy or not. And when using minders, for example, when thing that perplexes me a little bit that these folks suggests that you have minders during one to one interviews, but they don't talk about using them another situations like if you go to a job, fair. As often that a manager and executive is sitting there talking to some college graduate, there one to one. There's no minder or phone screening screening for interviews that again, I haven't anybody suggests that you need a minder like every time you're on the phone doing a phone screen that you have to have a third party involved. And frankly, it's a little less formal. And if somebody's going to say something inappropriate, it's probably more likely that it's going to happen there. Then in a formal interviews, I you know, it just starts to fall apart a little bit. Yeah. It does. Okay. So let's refute it with another angle, the screening process, you're going to go through if you're an effective, hiring manager and following our guidance again to your point, Mike. I think it's interesting. The proctors are only suggested face to face interviews. If your company doesn't allow one to one interviews, you may not have thought of this way. But if I'm going to be potentially so unprofessional as to need help proving that I didn't do something. Why wouldn't I say something in a phone screen that would? Similarly, put the organization at risk. Okay. That's not the point we wanna make. I just think that's an interesting aside, that never seems to get talked about in this idea of you can't have a one to one interview. The reason we can do one to one interviews when we are finally face to face with the candidate is the layers of screening that will have already occurred before we ever have substantive face to face interviews..
