It's What You DON'T Do That Will Keep You Happy

"Just indulging whenever you want, doesn't keep you happy. And the message that we should be giving college freshman at the university of Arizona is not that your parents are the worst people ever and that what you were taught was a lie. Instead it should be this. It's what you don't do at the university of Arizona that will keep you happy. That's what kids do to hear. It's the parties you don't go to. It's the drugs you don't try. It's the drinks you don't, you don't have. It's the relationships you don't engage with. It's being able to say no and have self control. That's actually going to keep you free. Not the other one. It's the other way around, right? It's that no freedom is indulging. Freedom is being young only once or whatever Yolo, you only live once. Then, maybe when you're young, you can get away with it. Maybe you get it out of your system. Don't recommend it, but whatever. But you start to realize that I need to do more the next time to try to make it feel as exciting. It was the last time. It's like all of a sudden the guardrails start. Yeah, it's like the window starts to change. It's like, I have to do myself a little bit. And this is one of the things I could get a little bit into dating and all that stuff. We've always gets people's attention. I won't say this to young women, but young women will appreciate what I'm saying. I'll talk to young men. So I always say this and all the young ladies always applaud when I say this. I say young men, you gotta get your act together. You gotta get your act together, and all the young ladies are like, oh yes, absolutely. So a lot of young men are directionless. It's like prolonged adolescence, right? It's mature infants, right? And so but it's not all young men's fault, by the way, because they live in a society that coddles them that tantalizes them and emasculates them, right? But you want to know a characteristic that young women want to find in men, it's a young man that can control himself. It's a young man that can go 90 days without drinking. It's a young man that can say no to all the other pressures. Because if someone's like, wow, if he's able to say, no to somebody else will make good decisions and he'll be able to protect me.

Self-Censorship Is the Most Powerful Form of Censorship

"So let's talk first about censorship. So Dennis and prager you did a great job. They're Google lawsuit. They were way ahead of the curve by the way. They tried to warn everyone that Google was going to shut everyone up. And people took them seriously, but not enough people, and then next thing you know, Donald Trump gets kicked off YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, all in one day, and it's kind of, I told you so, right, Dennis, it was one of those things. And we kind of have a separate government that exists in our country, one that we elect and one that is technocratic and one that is headquartered in Silicon Valley and in Menlo Park. So I could get into that form of censorship. I could also talk about the former censorship that exists on college campuses, whether it be the administration or antifa, and all that. But the type of censorship that I think is actually most helpful to talk about is one that every single person in this room participated, which is when we shut ourselves up. Self censorship has become the biggest form and most powerful form of censorship. Now, it's not only we don't shut ourselves up because we always want to, it's largely because we're afraid of the price or the cost associated with speaking up. And a great example of this is when people say Charlie, what can I do? And I asked them, I say, at work or with your Friends, are you allowed to express your political or religious or moral beliefs? And a vast majority of the people that listen to my show say no. I say, well, then you are not free. I said, let's just start there. You know, instead of you running for governor or whatever, what you're all great things and say, why don't you next time at your lunch break, tell the people around you how you view the world like Charlie, I can't do that. I mean, I'll lose my job, I'll be ridiculed. I'll be marked. I'll be smeared. So, of course you will be. So why won't you do it? And that's really the issue, isn't it? And this has been one of the genius moves to the left is that they are able to hold hostage our decadence to use a great word. Our lifestyle our luxury over us. We have a great life here in America and conservatives know they have a great life. And it's actually this very interesting thing. It's this inverse relationship, and I love Dennis thoughts on this. Because conservatives are more thankful to be an American and thankful for what they have. I think we're also more afraid to lose

You have stories in this book about people like George foreman, I love George Foreman. I want to get him on this program. I just want to talk to that guy. Tell me about him, but maybe before you tell me about him. Tell me what you just told me in the break about what about men who have blown it, who have messed up. Yeah, Eric, one of the things that I see a lot and have conversations with men around is Tim. I made some mistakes in my life. I haven't been a good dad. I've not handled my marriage all that well. I struggle in my relationship with God. And I don't know what it means. I can do things. I want to and they're given a little bit more what we would call as religion versus a relationship with God because Tim if God really knows me the way you say he knows me, there's no way you could love me. Because they look inside and they see the brokenness. You know that? And Eric, here's the central message of the book. And that is, is that God is constantly reaching toward us. He desires us. His heart is there. And he wants us and he beckons us to come to him. Just like we want our kids to come to us when they're broken. When they're struggling, when they're lost, when they're confused, I want my kids running to my lap. And God can handle our emotion. He can handle the brokenness of our lives. He just simply wants us to come

Donald Trump and Mike Lindell Sit Down to Discuss Election Integrity

"Here's a little bit of the conversation between president Trump and Mike lyndell. No, I love the country. And I had to go and the goal was to do what we did. And I think you can almost say that few presidents, if any did what we did when we rebuilt the military, what we did was so much. And we did it under a lot of pressure because there were so many other outside forces that were fighting us. I just considered it a great honor. I was very disappointed as you were as as millions of people were. I think I read 78% of one of our great parties felt that the election was rigged and stolen. And it was rigged. And he said it was rigged. You know, we clipped that a little bit unfortunately, but that listen. And we're all nervous about this. Let me tell you why we're nervous about it 'cause I don't know what the right approach is. I don't have a crystal ball. I don't. I believe that Donald Trump was the single best president in my lifetime. The single most effective, most I've never seen a president receive the kind of support and enthusiasm that Donald J Trump received. It's never happened in my lifetime. We loved Ronald Reagan. The relationship between millions and millions of Americans and Donald Trump is like Ronald Reagan adulation on steroids. And something very special happened during those four years. The media, the beast revved up, they came after him, morning noon and night. I believe he is still as popular as ever. But I admit, I don't know. If Trump's message that the election was rigged, helps or hurts Republicans in

Sebastian Asks Rep. Claudia Tenney 'Are We Winning?'

"Welcome back to one on one with none other than congresswoman Claudia tenney. Claudia. Let me blow your trumpet politely. When you came in into the studio earlier today, you know, we get politicians in the studio. You know, the good guys and good girls come in here. And the remarkable thing about them, especially in your cases, you come in, I say, would you like a coffee would like anything last? And then I got out of the studio to get you a bottle of water. And I'm looking everywhere in the green room. Where's her retinue? Where's her entourage? Is a member of Congress. Where are the Strata? Where are the PR people? And there's nobody. So this just reinforces for me why you're the best example of what we need in America, not career politicians, like Nancy like charcot who have been around for decades, but people who see themselves as Americans representing their fellow Americans, I'm going to ask you the question I asked all of the good guys and gals. Are we winning? Is that side? Is it burgeoning? Is it growing? You know, the freedom caucus the people who don't want to say this way. I went to the members dining room to have lunch with a couple of supreme caucus people. And I asked them, is it as bad on the inside as I think it is from the outside? And one of them said, you know, the trouble is even in the GOP, 30, 40% of us, they just want the job. They want the chairmanship with the chauffeur driven limo and they want the office with the fireplace. You do not represent that to me. So who's winning? Who's in the driving seat? What's the power relationship between The Old Guard and the citizen politicians like you? You know, it's a tough crowd. I'll tell you it's a funny story. Look at I had to fight against the establishment in both parties just to get elected to the state assembly. I had to defeat the county chairman. Wow. And so they were all working against me. And they always have. I never got endorsed by our local party. The Republican Party, running for office ever until after I was elected to Congress. So you won without any endorsement. No, I had to run a primary had to put my own team together, so I know what it's like to be, you know, I'm also a lawyer or a business owner. I know what it's like to, but I'm trying to do, I'm trying to stand for our country and stand for our small business community and what we need to do. I don't see myself as part of a group or other than I want to represent my constituents. I'll tell you funny stories. When I first got into the state assembly, I remember this old time assembly member who had here I am coming from the private sector. I don't know what pensions are. I don't know any of this stuff. And you know, I'm all worried. I could care less if I, you know, use a folding chair and have a folding table. I mean, it doesn't really matter any of that stuff. And so this one person came up and said, oh, I can't believe, you know, we were minority members, Republicans, and the Democrats were in the majority, and they said, did you see the Democrats got all new mahogany deaths to new computers? And we should have mahogany desk. I'm like, no, you shouldn't have a haggy desk. We don't need that stuff. We need to govern. We need to understand the taxpayers. And I love the Jeffersonian idea. I mean, we are not supposed to be doing these jobs forever, which is why one of my first bills when I got into the assembly was, let's take all the politicians who are elected and appointed off of the pension system and put them in a 401k case to system because if you're going to serve and you want to you shouldn't have to leave and not be able to at least contribute to your own retirement, because I was really these non contributory pensions and then and of course that was not met with much approval.

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia

"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten

CNN Publishes Mother of All Kamala Harris Exposés

"So there's a couple stories that I want to try to put together here. But the first and the most interesting story quite honestly. And it's interesting in a way that you might think is the sudden and unexpected. Kind of shade war and stories that were coming out against cami. Against Kamala Harris. So late on Sunday evening on the front page of CNN were at least 6 or 7 different stories. 6 or 7 separate stories. That we're covering how The White House is at odds with one another. On the front page of CNN dot com last evening, here's where the headlines were this. Harris struggles with her relationship with Biden. Vice president's team tries the distance herself from fraught situation at the border. Harris looks to turn page as she zeros in on voting rights. White House goes into damage control after reports of dysfunction in Kamala Harris's office. 5 stories against Kamala Harris on the front page of CNN dot com. Exasperation and dysfunction inside Kamala Harris's frustrating start as vice president. Now, this is not Fox News dot com. This is not zero hedge dot com. Is that breitbart dot com? This is CNN dot com. That is reporting this. Worn out by what they see as entrenched dysfunction, and a lack of focus Key West west wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at vice president Kamala Harris. And her staff deciding there simply isn't time to deal with them right now. Especially at the moment, when president Joe Biden faces quickly multiplying legislative and political concerns. I continues by saying defenders and people who came for Harris are getting frantic. When they're annoyed, some pass around recent onion stories, mocking her lack of substantive work, one with the headline, quote, White House urges Kamala Harris, the Senate computer all day in case emails come through. When they're depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached the top levels of Biden orbit, according to one person who's heard it. She is perceived according to CNN dot com to be in a weak position. That top Democrats in and outside of Washington have begun to speculate privately. Her job as number two is to be helpful and supportive to the president and to take work on he asks and who asks her to be intelligence briefing. This is a multi page hit piece.

"What was the relationship with Lincoln and Douglas was Lincoln intimidated by Douglas Douglas was a powerful figure Was it the reverse I mean what was the dynamic between the two Sadly link you never wrote about it but others said he talked about it Douglas was a overpowering figure in the time wanted an immediate Emancipation proclamation wanted to let blacks fight for their freedom He didn't do it And in the beginning he was he was given and said on his first inaugural hey guys come on back in We lost 7 states We need you back We can compromise what we've slavery for now Whatever you do come on back to wood and Douglas Are you kidding me You want them back This 4 million slaves there's 350,000 slave owners We have to end this now That's what you talked about in the Douglas debates do it But he knew Lincoln that if he did it you have no country you preside over because the north was exactly ready to fight for slavery either but gradually both things happen when they finally meet at The White House He realizes what winning was how sincerely was how deep he was and what a great listener he was And together the brief period of time they rallied with recruitment they rallied on issues getting equal to whites in the war and the respect that they had was enormous And I'll just share with you the last interchange He walks into the inaugural ball after only Yorkshire Greek and looks like she's delicacy of my friend Douglas What did you think of the speech We look back at this mister president Don't worry about me Look at all these people around us There's nobody's opinion that I care more about What did you think of the speech He said mister president a sacred effort And that was their last exchange So tell me how more they came and how important they were I mean to me I read that and I get

"Look, we're all in the fight for liberty and liberty is not man's idea. It's God's idea. And we as Christians, we are, we are called to do more. And I gave my life to Christ, and I was in 5th grade. Sony 5th graders out there. I encourage you to give your life to Christ. All right, there you go. Good year. That was the year 2005 when I was in 5th grade, by the way. And it was a good year. Are you serious? Yeah, that's right. Oh man. And I say it was the most important in my life when you enter into God's eternal family. And you answer into the kingdom of God. As you get older, that means more and more to you. And you realize, really, what grace is and what your relationship with Jesus Christ is. And I was raised in a Bible believing church in the suburbs of Chicago. And I was always taught that we as Christians in the church should never comment on what's happening in the news. Never comments on what's happening outside of the walls of the church. We just do the gospel. You know, we try to increase our budget, build bigger buildings and do more baptisms. That's it. And don't question it. And I bought into it. And as I started turning point USA, I always felt that had to be outside of the church, never talk about the church. And then I met my now pastor rob McCoy, who's an amazing American a great man. And calvary chapel Thousand Oaks, California. So Charlie, you're looking at this wrong. He said, you're trying to set the captives free. You're trying to fight for liberty and try to make people live virtuous and moralize. You're trying to fight for a constitutional republic that is a gift from God and try to motivate God's church to do more in that regard. And he made a very compelling argument on how the American church founded this country. How the American church was the leading force for defeating communism internationally and also some of the Marxist forces here domestically in the 1950s and 60s. And so he was kind enough to have me speak at his church, and then I went and spoke at Jack hibb's church, another great American and dear friend of mine. And I thought to myself, wow, what if the church really stood up and proclaimed with courage the way that Jesus told us to in a time where everything seems to be falling apart, the church can be the leader at

Defining 'Woke Culture' With Vivek Ramaswamy

"How would you define woke? It is used all the time we use it. I have my own personal definition, but just explain in as much detail as you're comfortable, what do we mean when we say woke? Yeah, thank you for doing that, Charlie, and I applaud you for doing it. I'd love to do it for woke culture and cancel culture. Because I think these are terms that get bandied around too much and often used a little imprecisely. And I'm going to give a definition that I at best I can not be judgmental about the claims of the woke movement, but let's understand what it actually has to say. Okay. So the woke movement is all about waking up to invisible power structures that govern the social universe. What does that mean? Well, it borrows from Marxist thought. Marxist said that, actually, there were these invisible power relationships between human beings, but they were based on economic class relationships that people who had more money exerted invisible power over people who didn't have much money. Woke culture had a slightly different theory of the case. And they said that there are these invisible power structures. But what we need to do is wake up to the real power structures which weren't based on how much money you have quite. It was based on their genetically inherited attributes that you got in the day you were born. Whether you were male or female, whether you were black or white, whether you were gay or straight, these were the factors that really governed the invisible power relationships between us as human beings. And what woke culture calls on us to do is to wake up to those invisible power structures so we can correct the injustices arising from them. That's the long version. The short version, if you want to shorthand version is obsessing over race gender and sexual orientation, maybe climate change, too. And that would be an equally good

"Folks I'm talking to the author, Lawrence lemur, the author of capote's women, a fascinating book, detailing the extraordinary and strange relationships that this, I don't know what you call him. This man child, this genius, Truman Capote had with all of these wealthy society, women in the 50s and the 60s. I was asking you in 1976 when he finally allows esquire to publish something, maybe to keep the publisher at bay who paid him this big advance. That all of these women knew who they were portrayed in this excerpt and they all felt betrayed. Did any of them remain friends with him? Yeah, I mean, Lee Roswell stayed friends with him and CZ guest because he didn't send a negative about them in the excerpt. But his life sort of fell apart after this. It's like he cashed in his chips by publishing this thing. He groomed all of these women, groomed these relationships, and then suddenly decides to betray them. Do you think was he a deeply mean spirited person to do something like this? It seems cruel to me to have people who are confiding in you and then to betray them publicly in this way. He was an egomaniac. He was incredibly charming, but he lived an isolated life by himself in a real sense. He was friendless. So yes, he's God. So why not betray these women? There was Friends forever. And he didn't understand why they were so upset. And I think they were right to be upset. Some of his some of Truman's Friends, oh, they deserve it. They were just as rich worthless women. I don't feel that way at all. I think it was a terrible thing to do. He died in 1984. He was somebody that you could see at Studio 54. He always seemed to be making the scene, so to speak. He seemed to cultivate his public image, probably infinitely more than he cultivated an actual personal inner life. And it seems to have destroyed him. He was actually quite young when he died, wasn't he? His 59. Yeah, 59. Tell us some of the stories in this book. First of all, why would you write it with a title capote's women? In other words, why not simply write about Truman Capote and have the stories of these women be incidental to it? What made you want to focus on the women themselves? Because he wanted to write this masterpiece. This is going to be his master degree. So people would forget in cold blood or breakfast at Tiffany's. This is a book that would live forever. So as an author, I'm just fascinated by somebody that has that ambition. And what happens with it? And this is a guy with brilliant instincts in literary instincts. There is a he knew there was a great story to be told about these women. I mean, I tell it, I'm getting fabulous reviews. I don't tell it the way Truman would tell the feed been able to do it. But it's a fantastic story. There's no question

Author Laurence Leamer Presents a Complex Web of Relationships in 'Capote's Women'

"Folks, we're talking with the author, Laurence lemur about his brand new book capotes, women, of course, referring to Truman Capote. Lawrence, for those who don't know this story, what is the background of capote's women? In other words, we know that he has this outrageous talent. It carries him rather quickly to New York City, where he really falls in with this crowd, but it's usually very wealthy society, women, babe Paley and others. How did that happen for him? How did he find himself in those circles? Well, this genius and this incredibly ambitious man, everything is material, right? Whatever season does, he's going to use one way or the other. In 1958, he's off on an island of Greece in Greece. And he decides he wants to write a book called answered prayers. Based on the action that answered prayers are more unhappiness over answered prayers and unanswered prayers. And it would be the life of these 7 incredibly wealthy women that were his friends. This beautiful stylish women. So these are the women that was already friends with in the 50s. In other words, he comes to New York. He takes society by storm, and he manages to befriend and get into the confidence of 7 very wealthy very beautiful women already by that time. And he makes this decision to write a book about them as early as 58. Right. And with a style that has lost in the world. They're obsessed with style address. And when they went out, they're always perfection. When they walked into the car, one of these other restaurants, everybody turned. And they maintained that thing for years. It's one thing to be beautiful in your 20. It's not so easy when you're 50. And these women did

"first relationships" Discussed on Talking It Out

"And you don't start your relationship like that and so just being able to talk about it and just have healthy boundaries of like intimacy. I think is the perfect way to start a relationship. I mean absolutely how can you have a relation. we started off intimacy. We started off with courageous conversation truth. That's for everyone list. that's a pretty much wonderful baseline start with right I love love at where you in love with any of these the first relationships that you just spoke. Oh yeah i mean these are these are. I've always dated with the hopes of marrying somebody never casually dated which i think is also why that incident was so big to me because i just wasn't very casual in insects in relationships and so these next three relationships i was in They were long. They're serious but they never told them about this. And you know. I think things will start to make sense to them if they end up watching this episode or hear about it is if you hot shit they gonna watch y'all listen to it. They're going to play. Okay that's what place you had love and where you said you were in love with at least one of the three of the individuals prior how. How can the person that you're dating be better for you and or not even you katie For our listeners out there alkan. If the person that you're dating your partner would be better for you if your other partner has been through trump. Yeah i mean if talking just in general i think it's virtually okay. Then sexual trump it's important to to have those conversations and understand what it is because sometimes that could mean certain things are triggering when it comes to what you're doing in the bedroom you know To put it bluntly like if if if you are an aggressive type of person in bed with your partner was raped that. That's not going to be inexperienced. They wanna go through. You know so. I think it's very important for people who've gone through sexual trauma to discuss with their partners very openly about what they've gone through because it's going to help them moving forward to know how to kind of navigate at and and move away from that negative experience so obviously the relationships after the fact these fail relationships you talk about they because i imagine they must have constantly or whenever the situation came up they would ask you why and you didn't divulge what happened to you to in either relationship so like what was that conflict like like what would you say to kind of get them off your back or like the subject or try to understand you in a better way like what would you. What was your mechanism to cope with that. Yeah with the with the guys. They never actually would ask why. And that's another thing with with relationships. You have to acquire in figure out things communicate rather than asking why they would just be angry. Then you're trying to fix make you know you're trying to fix it and make them happy and of setting your whole relationship to fail. Yes speak speak bet so powerful right there you just said perfectly for both parties in the relationship one you on your side you were saying you're trying to fix it but you're not saying in the him he just getting mad and being dumb ass not.

"It's all hair welcome to the show. Julia samuel returns to the poke cost. And i am so delighted to welcome her back onto the show. Julia is a psychotherapist and author. I don't have last visit to the podcast. We talked at length about how we can adapt to a navigate through the challenges of change and it was a polk cost recorded on the very cusp of what became the first lock here in the uk. So we didn't do it in person. It was one of the first evidence zoo. And it was a very timely conversation that i know resonated with a lot of you my most excellent listeners. Then in december last year. Julia very kindly invited me to join her on one of her instagram lives. And we touched as something of a tangent. Actually we touched on the subject of having to learn to love yourself if loving or like in yourself doesn't come naturally or something you don't feel applies to you and hinders how you navigate the world. Then this conversation is definitely for you. We discuss attachment theory. Why loving and being loved such a vital component of our identity the risk in loving others. And why we need to pay more attention to our feelings rather than override them because of what others think because they are actually trying to steer us towards the things that we need. We also very unscripted. I hasten to add did little exercise is the felt sense by ut gambling when she was first on the podcast. I've never done anything like that with anyone. On the show. But speaking of that exercise it slightly hypnotic and it could be distracting. So please be aware of this and don't follow along if you're driving operating heavy machinery. Your attention is required elsewhere. It might be best left until you can do it somewhere safe and quiet and where you are not what your attention can be devoted to percent now prior to recording this episode. I was telling friends. I was speaking to do. The again. and as julia has a huge amount of expertise in grief counseling and living losses. Which we do again discussing the show. Someone suggested. I asked her about the end of friendships. Female friendships specifically in this instance. And how devastating. The end of a friendship can be and i think the end of friendships can be trivial in a way we wouldn't do with romantic relationships and so in this episode. We discuss why it's entirely legitimate. Feel the same or similar a similar kind of heartbreak off. The a friendship ends as it is when a relationship does duty. As i'm sure you hear such a calming and save guest. I really hope you find her insights as enlightening and as enriching as i did the links julia and everything we discussed. We'll be in the show expert for now. Please join me. In welcoming samuel back onto the gun show is back on the podcast author and psychotherapist and wonderful human being. Who always makes me feel good in whichever way i interact with her. Whether that's speaking tours. I am now hello julia or what junior. Instagram listening to your podcast. Because since we last spoke you have started your own podcast. I have been very exciting and expanding yet. Been lovely to say. Say a wonderful show in august listeners. The links will be in the show notes but the reason. I wanted to ask juliet come back on. The podcast is because we did and instagram live together around christmas time. Actually it was and we went off on something of a tangent and we. We talked briefly about this idea of learning to love yourself and how actually it can be something that can be very easy to forget to do. You can get swept up in your other relationship so you don't prioritize your relationship with yourself and you said that it was something that you had had to work on so i wondered if we could perhaps unpick that in this conversation today. Yes i mean. I'm so thrilled to be with you and to be on your fantastic poker. So i just wanted to say that fast and i mean as human beings we are relational and the sort of quality of our lives. And how qanon is is both based on our relationship with ourselves which i guess in some ways our first and second relationship and our relationship with others and it's an away our second relationship because how we are in relationship with ourselves is embodied and profoundly influenced and shaped by those first relationships that we have with our with our parents caretakers and how we often feed it by ourselves is by what we've learned from what is modeled from them much more than what is said to us and say the the sort of model that most people think about knives psychologists therapists. Everybody in sort of this field is from the john bobi attachment theory. Which i'm sure you've heard about the kind of basic trust secure attachment where you have basic trust in yourself and others that your good enough that you will be valued as you are and you can kind of survive and have their resilience to kind of go through difficult things or insecure attachment and their different versions of it but that there's a kind of unpredictability in your relationships that you're not sure that your fundamentally good enough and that can be played either by holding on very tight all by cutting off by not being.

"I hear you, you know, when you said that about, you know being such a young lady, you know reminds me of the comedian Adele from from Chicago. So that was that was her that was her tagline right there, you know, but we wage No that we have to constantly deal with these issues and and even in the work that you've been doing at the community. You're you're dealing with issues of homelessness, you're dealing with issues of addiction all of those things. I want to go back a little bit as well off and talk about how you and your husband you all actually. Let me make sure that I have this right you all started the Harris Fletcher social Enterprise and it was geared towards helping Americans descendants of slaves and black indigenous people of color. So As you were just talking about talking about that. How how did this how did this come into play? Like how did you and your husband come together to be able to now provide some resources for African American people that have been enslaved their ancestors have been enslaved what we know that there is a wealth disparity and there is a a big gap and I think we're like 280 something years behind economically as American descendants of slaves. So knowing that we knew we wanted to help him build he comes from a household where his mom was abused and that they were homeless or two and four and then he was in the Army and then knowing that when I met him he had like $100 in his account and he was about to pay for a $60 off. Um birthday party for his daughter and I'm just thinking really but that's what we do. Now with people. We don't get paid again, you know, yes, we're going to get another paycheck if we don't move jobs, but we're not learning how to be financially responsible. So I brought him along the way cuz somebody taught me because I asked and so then we we wanted to continue to hold and then we had a friend who was sleeping on a cot. He's eighty years old. He was caught at the rescue mission here in town and we went and scooped him up. And then we had a blind man who a Social Service Agency called us to say that we have a space for him and we did brought him here in my human hearing a gallery. And so we we needed to do something and so we got this house together and we made it into wage like a Jack and Jill type out your duplex. How you doing where they can stay and we take care of them because they don't have the resources. And so when I sail from Prince George, My cellphone tours and he goes to work and so we take care of those people. And so we decided to do this Ford Flex, which is currently 203 Flex as of yesterday. When we spoke to our architect took a a program is class that was like seven weeks called scaled up and it taught us about sustainability and it taught us about the process and so we just bought a network and network and networking and we didn't stop here and it sound like a nothing's going to happen. And then we go to the next person and I talked to this person over here and be like talk to this person over here. And so we talked to this person who's interested that person and now we have architectural plans. We have a funding meeting on Friday. They love me and I thank you because it's like when you commit your life to something important the doors just keep opening and so we're still looking for Thursday. Funding for black women of people of color disabled veterans and Etc the disabled veteran too. And so we just we're looking for fun fact, we're looking for ways to be able to support more people and not just in put them in some housing for them so they can play cheap rent, but the teach them what we lives we got home. And because housing is is the call it an urban Food Forest. So we're planting trees where they can kind of pick from the trees. They have their own plots and Gardens were excited. Oh my gosh, they were so accommodating want to use shovels. They just want to use their hands to dig the dirt super exciting and my kids are involved in this I plant a garden. I have three Gardens here in this house one indoors one on the front porch and Thursdays are guarded and then we plan over there. I got points in the mail yesterday and it's just beautiful to be able to create a a horse and to reduce the heat index here in Tucson wage. That's important. Did you see this like this how it's just amazing like it's here there but it's still all coming together to create one one Collective Community. I do, you know take take it on over. I wanted to ask you to describe the living two portraits Museum and pop up library. I just want to get a little insight on that. So it's a small space and some people either come here because of cold wind is just a private tour. It's about an hour and half and then I go through all of the pictures and about 40 in here and I tell the story and then it's introspective and soul is geared towards let me think about me. How do I connect to this image? How do I connect to the world? How can I be a better mean? I think that's important. I don't think we do that enough as people. Yep. Introspective we're so busy pointing the finger and blaming instead of saying, how can I fix paramecia? What what better can I do today than I did yesterday. How can I just be in better me? And this music thing is mobile museum is that and then I also take like how collections like the adolescent boys collection here. I'll take parts of the collection into a place and talk about Iraq and then we can do some artwork and the public library here. I love it because I love to read and read the stories to the children and sank. What is your heart in this? How do you feel about this? And then we can write a little piece and then we paint and so it's like the best of Two Worlds we get the paint off and that's like my favorite thing to do in the whole wide world and to write so I think your excitement wage It's contagious. I'm sure that the less there's have to understand your excitement is contagious. Oh, I love it. I love painting. I love books. I loved children. I love I love to be read too. I love to sit there and listen to a story and my kids always mommy. Can you read us a story and so beautiful and they might might be the mac book that I published my middle son wrote the forward in the book and my older son did.

So we're in the family to couple of nice place for those who don't know explain what copper weather is so, whether it is an African martial arts. So it was like that. You know, how we have nicknames like my nickname d c right wage.

But as soon as the flame manage lead the drumbeat changes the drug cheats, and then we're in June good and we're Ginga and we're practicing and we're learning to fight to get away and to set ourselves. Screen engrossed in Brazil. They had the highest amount of slaves in the transatlantic slave trade and so in understanding that so we do practice couple months and this last year later push Russia later when she's going to the carnival. She's an honor of my my ancestors and she's an honor of myself and I Ginga page. I love to cook Cottage a you know, and black green beans and love. So, this is one lady and then we have this lady here. Her name is boobies. And so he is an honor of breast cancer awareness month and are super sexualized as a society where he can't even say boobies. If I say who he's my son's going to run down here my whole life. And so if it's just an honor of that and how my breasts are used to nourish my my children, you know, and I had so many friends who have had double messed up with Spectrum. He's and we almost feel like we lose our identity when we lose our breasts and some of his hair booties kind of the story behind her talks about that. And so I definitely would honor and Credence to my girl booties here. Well, I love the fact that you bring in all of not just your art form, like even wage were telling a story. I mean, it's just so International like you have taken all of your experience from understanding what it means to be without as a child to be in the military traveling and the Arts and just taking that and I mean just making a beautiful Melody of it artistically in giving it back to the world and I just you know again, I mean, I'm going to take 2 seconds. I found out earlier you all don't know if she has before we get on the show half and out a little bit before time takes 2 seconds like to just fan-out now, but like your artwork your writings, everything is just so amazing and yep. I just want to know when you talk to speak to other artists how you know, when they're just like, oh, you're so accomplished like your work has been in and you know in the Museum of Contemporary Art in the University Arizona Museum of Art, how do you get a platform like that to be able to you know, get out all of this artwork and energy that you have to be able to share with other people? I will go back to that you have not because you ask not one of the scriptures tell us that knock and the door will be open and I think we as people of the app is for we kind of sometimes we'll like my old for example, he's I don't talk to those people over there. He's very pronounced about that and that's something very cultural about us to kind of stand back and to be reserved but I understood that I have a story to tell and I'm important and important in my own life and it's not saying that I'm putting myself higher than I ought to be but I believe there's so many people need to be able to hear stories of accomplishments and a lot of times we as people a an African diaspora. We are seen as coming from the S whole Nations, you know what I mean or those Urban places over there. We are considered those has end of them's I Want to make it clear that yeah, I'm one of those those at them but you better not call me. Then. You better call me Randi hu and you better understand what you're dealing with right here. I love off Family known as span paper grid number sixty because I'm off and we have people we have to give on these platforms to be able to express. Why am I am harsh like this? I have a beautiful poem that I can't say over the the wrong ways because very very harsh. But my mom used to have this same she'll say I'm such a method lady and the Paradox that of be a lady of the courts but having this mouth in this attitude to kind of go along with this that's how we are. You know, we're harsh we're hard. My grandmother was like that she is dead. He was about the seamstress for mayor Tom Bradley the first mayor black mayor. Yeah, right. And so I grab them off you didn't and she had cut you out and drink her mother. She's hard-core alcoholic, but she had that gun, but she was attempted lady to you know, and it's just off Atlantic about it. Just when someone said your good number 60 your kind of hard and you're a little intimidated. I'm not intimidated that you're not going to walk over mean you're not going to say anything to me. And yes, I am bearing I feel that I'm approachable, you know, and but if you feel that you can't something inside of him because you never took the time to get to know who I am these platforms are important for me and once people understand. Got these platforms from people in the Tucson public places program, and one of my friends is running for Pima County Recorder right now here in Tucson go Gabby, and I know that she'll win that one, but she off. We call each other along as she pulled me up and said hey Randy. Yeah, I got something for you and I'm like, hey Gabby, I'm doing something come on through and I think that's important that we leverage each other and she's an indigenous woman here in America. So these platforms are important for us to get our point across and sometimes I feel like people don't want to hear someone with the name Randy still come and talk for them and down there is some there still. I'm still marginalized in a lot of ways. And also I've sometimes seen that black men don't want another black don't want the black woman too kind of it's just a patriarchal system is going on too. So.

I wanted the older women to teach the younger women and the younger woman to influence the older women and that builds relationships with that feels because a lot of times we try to cut our elders Out and because we know everything at twenty, you know, how we knew everything is wonderful. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't want to cut that out. I wanted us to bleed together and to learn together. I wanted the younger one to learn how to put their that roast in the oven or whatever cooking, you know to be able to teach your older one just down the computer is how you use an Excel spreadsheet. So there has to be a teaching points on both sides and we have the meet in the middle and you know what it builds Community. That's what you're building your building a sense of family and community and you you not only have one non-profit. I can do all things. But you also co-founded another one Refugee Resource Center tell us about that. So with Refugee Resource Center, my kids were taking Taekwondo and my thoughts are black belt in Taekwondo and I met this family and this lady named Lucien and she was she's beautiful beautiful sister to me and her kids. They're in Uganda right now boss and um, she asked him to teach her to write an essay and I'm like, I do not have any time to sit there and truly teach from starting in his childhood topic sentence thesis statement supporting detail conclusion restate the pieces. There was no way for me to really go through that. It's too much especially dealing with a second language learner at during the 50 minutes of Taekwondo practice. It was just I was talking to a theater and I recognized that there were some things in her that she needed a little bit more that was instead of just English pub. She kept saying her stomach hurt and I'm like kind of hers and then it became convenient every single time. That's like Athena need you to come here on his stomach hurts. And I was like, I wonder when your stomach hurts and so I end up asking her boss said what's going on and she's like, oh in her broken English my stomach hurts because she had a enter your urine during be in her stomach and the doctors don't understand her enough to take it out. So I said call him so I missed my little perfect English to talk to doctor and they didn't understand and they took it out. She was Dead 2 Days Later. Wow, two days later. She fell dead on the floor in a hospital and and because they didn't want to deal with her one cuz they was concerned about by virus at the time and to it just didn't understand there is so I needed to be able to advocate for four people so and it was the same thing happened with another young sister home. And beat by her husband and then she was supposed to maybe die in in the process. There was too many children of car just passed in a way and we as pan-african people that live here in America. We weren't paying attention to us sisters and brothers that were coming here and that bothered me so necessary someone took me and took me to buy some paint. Someone took me it took me. He'll comb your hair. Someone took me to buy me some jeans. Let me help my sister call the doctor at least and let me help my other sister find affordable housing because we have to advocate in the mission of the refugee resources Center is advocacy and education education is as advocacy and that's what we do here in Tucson. So on forever and an event last night, we were at a funeral in the park with one of my sister's is grandfather passed away and knuble Mountain sedan, so the advocacy is important and they miss when they don't see me there. Do you see where you been? Where have you been dead? Important that I'm there just in case they need something and we as people have to make ourselves present in order for people to see that we are there to help and support and be family that's important to me that wow. When did she I'm sorry. Go ahead be no. No, I was just going to ask if if just elaborate on some of her beautiful artwork that was behind her just give us a little information regarding that. Yes. So this beautiful lady is called breast Anita off the kind of and I love her skin, right and everyone has a little story and I would love to read her story. It's a short if you don't mind, please. All right. I'm showing my age so brassy Elena song.

"Speak out on how that experience is motivated you to serve I can definitely do that. So whenever my mother began using crack cocaine and early at my young age and so we wound up on Skid Row Downtown Los Angeles. My dad was the step dad that I was with he was on crack as well. And so we just didn't have anything we were going to the missions and we were hiding from the cameras hiding from CPS Child Protective Services. We didn't have enough to eat. There was no money. And we were always looking for a place to stay. So as I got older it was important that I understood that I am not going to live this way for the rest of my life. So I studied hard and I graduated from high school a little early. Then I went into the Marine Corps and continued my my birthday and got out and finished. My bachelor's and my Master's started up my doctorate, you know, and I just knew that that I was going to make a difference. I've done work off of these research in Fiji and it was just important that I understood that this that whole generational poverty was not going to follow me, you know, and I wanted to change the life and light in my life at all times to make a difference and it was important and so it's not even giving bad because my family is still challenged with homelessness to the 3rd generation. Can still so while as long as I still have great-nieces and great-nephews in transition or financially as a cure food insecure housing is secure. I will keep working and pushing to make sure that I leave a legacy for my family. Wow, that is amazing. Did you know during this time and even as a young person with the things that you were going through were you aware of the gift that you had as an artist or was that something that you began developing as you became older, once you got into the military, you know when I was about twelve there was a lady named Dawn and she was one of the black volunteers at the Union Rescue Mission, and she was asking me what did I want to do when I got older and of course, you know, I really wanted to be an artist and song. But growing up homeless. There's something about being an artist. There's no way that I'm going to be an artist because artists don't make money in my mind at that time that starving artist. I will not bow to be homeless the radio laughing with any dollar signs and all right so don took me to this art store and she bought me a oil paints and paint brushes that she bought me lava. So and she bought me turpentine and she told me to paint and I started reading about 12,000 is writing around the same time. So the Mantra that I have living two portraits has I'm a painter and a writer and Dawn and I don't know his name and I wish I could find her but she was off volunteer who came and scooped me up and said, hey you can do this and she spoke that into my life. You know it's and that's what's so amazing. Like you never know who you're going to touch by encouraging them by opening up their Horizons in terms of what the Arts or whether it be with the music fashion design math science, you know, and so shout out to. Off their, you know for for reaching out to a young person and giving them that inspiration. I mean is that part of why you are dead, you know this term Urban Missionary. We we talked about that in your intro, but you know, how did how did you join Edge her into from your experience in your artwork wage? Well, so and I was like with all the friends that I have and have a lot of international friends and they'd known as DC in the Dead. Kennedy not as Randy Sia think it's literally the DC almost like a noun and go out there. It's not too long ago feed. These people right here is let me go build relationships. Let me go make some friends and so my kids build these relationships with different people from around the world is a beautiful so it's yes, it's a missionary but it's more of a build some relationships. My kids have some powerful friends out there and I call my kids third culture kids because they didn't get that typical American upbringing there was very much to come over here right now. My daughter is going to come out with a gold tray from T and some water bottles with you and the black ones that come out to you. They're going to come and Shake Your Hand they're going to speak to you. So it's very much. So relational here with us. So there that third culture kid, and so it's friendship song. They should rather than just missionary for me. There were Dawn was an Urban Missionary. Yes friends reeling some friends. Yes. Yes. Go ahead. You know you created a nonprofit. I can do all things which focused on teaching sustainability to alleviate poverty and was the 2017-18 Tucson public voices Fellowship a collaboration between the women's Foundation of Southern Arizona and the University of Arizona. Can you explain how it reaches women and Leadership roles and elaborate on those things Force? I sure can. So after I got out of the Marine Corps, I remember as a flip flops on and I was sitting I had my my my son. He was really young so and my son is autistic. And so I just had this boy who's like full of energy and everything and running around and life is random phone call from this guy, dr. Parks and hey, you want to be a teacher. It was like know if I want to be a teacher so he called me and I think I walked up in there and some flip-flops and off because you know that you you're talking to an educated right here. So that's why it's even even funnier that you walked in with some flip-flops as well. I'm sorry go ahead, and so on the spot recognize that I was working on my Master's Degree and he knew he couldn't keep me forever, but he needed me for that moment wage. I did the kids in life. And so but as I was teaching us started to understand that those kids are just like me those kids did not need no me teaching them down there or Shakespeare dated. They couldn't even say Chaucer have decided a man who was talking to us. You know, they just and so it didn't make sense for me to continue to teach them something that in my heart felt irrelevant..

"Are there times where you had thought that you were in love and then later you realized? Oh, no, that's not what that was. I mean not even not even really I mean, I think I've said like probably like I love you to people before but like I don't know looking back. It didn't feel like that deep of a connection. I think a lot of it has to do with like a lot of my like relationships in the past were like secret because I wasn't out and so like it was hard to give like my whole self and like share my love of someone with everyone and the world and so I think that like inhibits the I don't know growth of love in a way. I mean, I hate I don't want to say that cuz I I'm sure people are closeted in relationships and that's like totally valid but like for me I wanted to celebrate someone and be celebrated and I feel like I haven't had that chance yet. So yeah, I wouldn't say I've been in love yet going to say like telling someone like I love you suck being in love with someone is like so different so maybe yeah like love that person, but you just went like, you know what I mean? Yeah, I mean I guess but I kind of like trust my instincts, you know where I was like or I looking back or I'm like, oh, you know maybe it was a situational reason where I liked that or like because I won a secure or like I needed cuddles for like this year of my life or you know, I blah blah blah, but it wasn't like for the intention of like finding love or like explaining this person. You know what I mean? Kind of I liked that topic of like love versus being in love. I think that that's something that maybe it's not unique to queer relationships, but I used to think that sometimes it was because you can love some especially I guess for for two women. I feel like our relationships no matter like if we're getting someone or not we become so emotionally bonded because we tend to be a little bit more emotionally open and vulnerable that it that the kind of love you feel for someone else can be confusing and that way versus realizing like am I in love or do I just care a lot about this person and I'm fond of them and like, what's the difference? How do you tell I don't know damn now. I'm like have I been in love I am. Like, isn't it? Just one of those things like when you feel it then it's true. Like is that like a test like how to tell if you're in love BuzzFeed quiz, you know, I almost think it's like if you say it and it feels true and not by saying it like I love you. Like I think you can tell someone I love you and not be in love with them. I know I definitely did that in my first relationships, you know, just how about like well, we've been pretty intimate at this point. So I guess I love you like this feels nice to say and this is what like the movies and TV shows and everything. We've been taught of like this is the order of things but then being in love like I don't know. I remember once I was seeing someone and they said something about being in love with me and that was when I realized that I wasn't in love with them because that term to me I was like, well, that's a little much for Rachel. So what did you say back? Well the way they said it is something wrong..

"It should come as no surprise to any teen or apparent of teen that kids are living their lives, online, and that includes romance writing in the Wall Street Journal this week columnist Christopher mims points out that because teens as well as twentysomethings experience early, puberty and later marriage, they've had to adjust to what that means in terms of their intimate relationships there. No longitude inal cities on how these online only or online first relationships workout in the long run. But just like the relationships that started the old fashioned way. They seem to have their advantages and their challenges. Now, I have seen this in my own home, just not even just romantic relationships. The idea of why. No this person. I know this person, you know them, but how do you know them from Instagram? So that kind of IRA or in real life. Like I don't even the, it's getting so blurred in those in those examples. Are they people that they don't go to school with that? Live in the town that are friends of friends, you know, but they know them from Instagram, or Snapchat spending so much of their I mean their lives. We all are spending so much of our lives online. But they're growing up with that being kind of the the way that it is. I'm not surprised at all that more more of these friendships, and even further as released to this article that those relationships are fostering in that way, what blows me away, is to have an entire relationship beginning, to end that occurs online to actually have a relationship with someone maybe that doesn't live in your in your location. Geographic location, that exists only online and to go through the arc of that, that, that is, you know, absent of any sort of physical connection. And then come out the other end and be like dad like that relationships over. Just kind of blows me away, but it makes sense. It makes sense to me. Well, I think it's different for twenty something versus teenager, and especially early teenager short my experience my own experience middle school. My experience of watching my children in middle school. It's like everybody's friends and then suddenly someone's dating and that means you stop talking to each other. Remember, it's like dating. Now we're too shy to ever talk to each other at all. So like maybe they're talking online, but I think that like makes sense because, you know, they're not talking in real life anyway, because it's terrifying when you're thirteen, but the later is interesting, too, but I think you can you can cross off a lot of things without having to go through the, you know, the church that issue of actually meeting them. But then in this story, there's, you know, the person that suddenly discovers this person, she was dating was also dating many other people at the same time, you know, as easier to do if you don't ever see the person absolutely in real life. Also the. Psychologists that he interviewed points out, just the fact that we need physical touch like for own health, like our immune system and our health and, and, you know, now that everybody has like FaceTime or Skype on their computers, their laptops in their in their room. It's like it's pretty close to real life, except for the touch parts, right? Yeah. This really just reminded me of back in the mid nineties. I met a girl online in, I guess it would would be our chat. And we spent a solid three months where we never exchanged photographs. And it was just purely like getting to know each other, and ultimately I ended up flying out to Montreal to meet her face to face. And we actually ended up dating for a couple of years, you know, I ended up living in Montreal for a little bit..

"But if I did no actually dignity, you do who used to work places. Is this true? But now like I talked to them there. They didn't know me, and I certainly didn't know them. Yeah. I was watching some like weird Ted talk about how like TED talks her out of people as an tedtalk, but was Ted talk by teddy vibes and like the microphone around the air. Yeah. And it was like a powerful motivational speaker, and it came across my Facebook feed. And I was in the mood to be inspired. So I I opened it. And he started first relationships in love, and how you build up to love you don't just wake up and love someone. But it's all these little things that make one day. Just be like, oh my gosh. I love this person. That's that's okay. Let's go getting married. I could use this. And then he starts leading it to his larger point that. That's how it should be in the workplace that that's how you got people love their job and the job and the workplace should be like a family and instead of being co workers, we should be brothers and sisters, so unreal Sook unrealistic and just unnecessary like want to be brothers and sisters with your co workers. I have brothers and sisters sisters brothers and sisters. But when your sisters are your coworkers. It's a family offend the cameras common out for Republic. What was decided on the sing? And I just haven't stopped when I was a kid, and that's all was the gym of the fucking century thought the words were all the cameras calming Republic buffet, and I was really upset when I found out that it wasn't because I love more than anyone. I really do love buffet. Like, would you rather have a five star seeded dinner or five star like classy, not like golden nugget nugget like real buffet? I. Yeah. I think buffet buffet 'cause I do like a little bit of a little bit of everything type of person accepts sometimes with the buffet. You might get the last batch of fries. And that's the problem. Cold, fry the problem? I have with buffets exercise of all like having to get up every time you want more food instead of just like demanding someone else get it for you. Yeah. What about like a buffet with waiters? That sounds good for your wedding. The point I wanted to do for my wedding. I was told like that's not parents like it's tacky. But never I think back like every buffet wedding ever been to so much more relaxed and so much more fun. It's just like my theory when it comes to food at weddings. It's like you're either there to hit the dancefloor don't bother me with food. I'm not eating like, I'm here to party shock dinner. Roll in your face every couple of hours to see you don't die. Right. And so that person the one person that other person is there to eat. I've been at weddings, very show up hungry. And what's the next course? What's -tarian option? You're gonna hit me with the result. Oh, I wanna fuck in until you've been to them. Ben is just like this short bit is not up to par like sendak at a fucking wedding. That is so many. So I like buffet solves the problem. Both people can do their thing. You know, the hungry person can have as much as they want. And the the the party drinker person doesn't ever have to sit down. I agree. So I was team. I was overruled whatever. Hopefully, you guys can have an I can come and be a guest at a buffet style wedding. I just wanna go buffet. But we haven't heard back from the country club chef up. Yup. I don't know. I don't wanna like a new ruffle feathers. So much me, right. Heard on the show today.

"Of course are the ways in which you right and become an intellectual and not just about things that affect you about the world, your consciousness starts growing. Once you become a college student, and can we talk a little bit about those those years because you were secretly writing to and then you had a wonderful therapist who suggested why don't you keep with the writings? There is a ten. Yes. And it's it's it's a great book, and I won't give him most of it away. But can we talk about your development as a mind and as a writer? Got out of myself, at least in terms of like, you know, how I felt in my body. I started sharing my body. And then also just expanding the way in which I thought about all the things that was going through at the time. And so I think one of my first relationships was probably the first space in which I started telling stories about their experiences that were very that. I had just had like having this boyfriend sharing, you know, who I was kind of the first points in which I was actually exploring myself, and what I thought and what I thought about what I went through and the people in my life. And so that's kind of what started me writing in grad school. I think moving to New York City, which just was a calling ever since I watched Felicity. Can't can we we wind a little bit to talk about how you got to New York. And why you wanted to get to New York other than Phyllis? Why did I just I felt like it was a place where you can be yourself? I felt it was so big that no one would pay attention to me. Good luck. Great. Is it seemed like the perfect place to just kind of blend in? I think there was also the sense for me to is like growing up on this small island. There was only like two degrees of separation and so because I transitioned through high school and middle school. Everyone knew that I was trans. And so that became the leading magic. Magic about before even came into a room. Yes. And so I was so contained by my history. I'm by people's remembrances of me when I was a boy writer when I'm presented as a boy. And so it was like a great escape for me to go to New York. And there I made the decision not to be open about being trans. And it was freeing to be like another young person figuring out who I was and being student loan debt and going to NYU. What were you majoring of journalism? And what was it that you thought that you could do as journalists of that you couldn't do let's say as a fiction writer where you're just not drawn to fiction. I it will trade number one could make money a journalist there's jobs for that whereas fiction writer, it was like how am I supposed to fort doing this? And so for me was practicality, and I was like I can work at a fashion magazine and eventually become a features editor or something. That was my my dream in my goal at the time. But something happened. You started to write celebrity pieces to support yourself. But that got very tired very quickly. That wasn't so much. You can read about engine, Lena, Julie and her children. You started to do something was it with the support of this therapist. This idea of writing about yourself. He told me he was like you should keep going with that. Because I would sit in here, and I would sit in that room with him. And just talk about all of these anxieties that I had at the point. I was like in a relationship with this guy. And I was thinking about leaving that relationship. And I thought maybe I can't leave it because who else is gonna love me because I'm trans like once they find out that I'm trans and not gonna wanna be with me. And I had all these pathologies in my head that I had learned from the world that I grew up in that I was not deserving and worthy right of love and affection and all this stuff. And so. I was in therapy to unlearn all of that..
