A highlight from Episode 72: A Catholic and Protestant talk about Purgatory and Indulgences
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial, and create a space for healing. Hey guys, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. Today we are doing another Protestant verse Catholic episode and we're going to be talking about purgatory and indulgences. Yeah, and before we start, we want to clarify that we will be talking about like the official doctrine because obviously like there could be a whole other topic like the history of abuses in this, especially in like the medieval era, but I think in order to have a good faith discussion, we have to actually go to like what is the actual doctrine, what is the official belief and custom, not ways it's been misused or abused. If you want to talk about a church history of like, oh different, like how this has like shifted and changed, like that would be like a whole other conversation. So we will just be talking about the actual doctrine and belief of purgatory Protestant Catholic perspectives, but going from what the Catholic position actually is, not what it maybe looked like at different points in history. Or how it was like being practiced in the church, which obviously we no longer, it is wrong and always has been wrong to sell indulgences. And I think there's been a lot of like yeah misunderstanding of what purgatory is, what it means, and then in turn what indulgences actually do. So we will get into that in this episode as well. And then Megan will also be responding for the more like Protestant view. So yeah, I guess I can start with, we'll start with purgatory. And what is the actual teaching of purgatory? So I think one of the most like misunderstood concepts of purgatory is that after you die, like purgatory is somewhere that you go where it's not decided yet. Like once you're in purgatory, maybe you could still go to heaven or hell and you need to like earn or like get better or clean yourself up or figure out what like what you want or I don't know before or God will judge like but it's a waiting period where you could end up in hell or you could end up in heaven. And that is not the teaching. I'm going to read officially from the catechism but purgatory is for those that are already saved. They are going to be going to heaven. They will not be damned to hell. They are found to be within friendship with God among the elect that will be going to heaven. And let me find the official church, church teaching. This is catechism number 1031. The church gives the name purgatory to the final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned. That's from the Council of Florence and the Council of Trent. The church formulated her doctrine of faith on purgatory, especially at the Council of Florence and Trent. The tradition of the church by reference to certain texts of scripture speaks of a cleansing fire. As for certain lesser faults we must believe that before the final judgment there is a purifying fire. He who is true says that whoever utters blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will be pardoned neither in this age nor in the age to come. From this sentence we understand that certain offenses can be forgiven in this age but certain others in age to come.
No Interruptions Podcast: Student Loan Forgiveness
"Week's No Interruptions podcast from the Mike Gallagher show is all about the issue of the Supreme Court ruling against the Biden administration and the effort to forgive student loan debt. Isaac Wilson is the chair of the Florence County Democratic Party in South Carolina. Isaac that believes student loan debt forgiveness should continue, and he's going to join us on that, from that side of the debate, and Lindsey Burke is the director of the Center for Education Policy at the Heritage Foundation and, of course, believes in what the Supreme Court, how they ruled. So both of you, welcome. Again, the rule, no interruptions for any of us. Let's just dive into this thing and see where you both are coming from. Mr. Wilson, let me start with you. You're chair of the Florence County Democrat Party. You're obviously in favor of student loan debt forgiveness. It's been a key talking point for the Biden administration. But how do you reconcile both President Biden and at one point, Speaker Pelosi admitting that this really doesn't really pass constitutional muster, this is not something the president can really do. Haven't the Democrats have had to do sort of an about face on whether they thought this was even plausible or not? Yeah, you don't get everything right. And sometimes, you know, you got to go above and beyond for those people who are at the bottom. The top 1 percent definitely doesn't care about the student loans and helping those people, but somebody has to do it. And so Republicans don't care about it. And Democrats have to step in, even though it's probably unconstitutional to some. But there are ways around everything that we do. Everything was unconstitutional to Donald Trump either. But he found a way to get some things done and put some things through, you know, even things, some things fail. But we've got to help those people and it helps their income, it helps their households, it helps them get out of debt, it helps them put more money back into the economy instead of paying for education that the school may have failed. Even Donald Trump tricked people out of plenty of money with his fall school. So you've got to help those people down the long run because in some instances it's not their fault. So we're doing our job and doing our due diligence of what we can

"Tiny to the point of disappearing. Earl Wilson of the New York Post wrote, she can sing anything, but notes. Critics were in consensus. She was the worst singer they'd ever heard. Let's meet Florence foster Jenkins. Florence was born on July 19th, 1868 to a wealthy family in Wilkes Barry Pennsylvania. As a child, her musical talents were treated as anything but a joke. She was considered a prodigy on the piano, and even performed at The White House as a young girl. Her admirers affectionately called her a little miss foster. But her dreams of becoming a concert pianist were shattered as a teenager. Her father forbade her from pursuing a music career. Hart sick and indignant, Florence eloped with a man nearly twice her age, doctor Frank Jenkins. The marriage was disastrous and ended after three years. The Florence kept Frank surname after their separation. Frank also gave Florence cephalus, which stayed with Florence for the rest of her life. In the early 20th century, it was still an incurable condition. Florence was forced to take regular doses of mercury and arsenic to manage the disease. The treatment caused permanent hair loss, leaving Florence and wigs. When Florence's father died in 1909, he left behind a sizable inheritance. Florence and her mother used the money to move to New York City. Florence then wiggled her way into polite society by joining dozens of social clubs. She loved to serve as chairman of music, which allowed her to put on lavish musical productions. In 1917, Florence founded her own verdi club, which soon boasted more than 400 members. She was helped by the failed British actor saint Clair bayfield. Who became Florence's longtime agent and alleged common law husband. He helped organize her various concerts and social engagements in New York City. At some point, Florence had suffered an arm injury that made it almost impossible to play piano. But her love of music never wavered. So she thrust herself into singing lessons, determined to reveal herself as a true operatic talent. Florence certainly was a revelation. Even before she opened her mouth to sing, she commanded attention with her elaborate star spangled garments. She put on vocal recitals at the Ritz Carlton that featured ornate sets and multiple costume changes. She was especially fond of showering her audience members with flowers as she belted out Arias. But the true attraction was Florence's voice. It wasn't just that she was a bad singer. It was that she insisted on performing some of the most difficult operatic pieces ever composed. Songs even the most well trained Sopranos would struggle with. When you listen to a recording of Florence's singing, you can't help but crack a smile. She squawks. Her voice quivers. Her high notes are ear splitting. And her contemporary audience reacted the same way. Though they concealed their amusement. A composer and a company as cosmic moon. Later explained whenever she came to a particularly excruciating Discord. Where they had to laugh, they burst into these salvos of applause and whistles. And the noise was so great they could laugh at liberty. This coordinated effort to hide the reality of Florence's awful singing, helped encourage her to grander heights. In 1941, Florence made a vanity record at a studio in midtown. When she arrived in the booth, she did a test recording of Queen of the night from the magic flute. To the operator's astonishment, she declared her performance perfect and refused to do another take. Unsurprisingly, her first record sold out, and Florence felt compelled to make a second. But Florence's most daring feat was the Carnegie Hall performance. Word had spread around the city of the oblivious opera singer, and her night in the grand hall sold out in mere hours. On the night of October 25th, 1944, roughly 2000 people packed into the venue. Among the crowd were stars like Cole Porter and actress tallulah bankhead. Through Florence's many Arias, onlookers were huge grins and struggled to contain their cackles. Dancer and actress Marge champion later confessed. We had sore muscles in our stomachs the next day as we laughed so hard and so long. When Florence flung her roses toward the front rows during the finale, the audience demanded an encore. But the next morning, devastation hit the newsstands. Saint Clair bayfield told a reporter that Florence was crushed upon reading the biting reviews. He sighed. She did not know you see. Florence suffered a heart attack only a few days after the infamous performance. She died about a month later, on November 26th, 1944. She was 76 years old. Today, Florence is fondly remembered as both a hilarious footnote and music history and a figure of inspiration. Experts have debated whether she was aware of her lack of talent or actually oblivious. But her confidence in her abilities and determination to follow her lifelong passion for music were impressive either way. In the final days of her life, after digesting the negative reviews, Florence declared some may say that I couldn't sing, but no one can say that I didn't sing.

"You brought up meditation and mindfulness. That was another thing you tried in the wake of the heartbreak. Did that have a beneficial impact? Yeah, I think it absolutely did. So many people told me, Florence, you need to meditate. And I was a little bit resistant at first. But I actually feel like I did learn how to meditate much better during that wilderness trip. So that was another benefit that came out of that was so quiet out there. And I could access a state where I could be very aware of the present moment. I could hear the birds. I could hear the breeze. I was doing a lot of sound meditation. And I actually got to a point where I could hear the inside of my head. And I had never experienced that before. Have you heard about this Dan? It's just, it can be kind of off putting it first. You're like, wait, do I have tinnitus? What is that kind of high pitched sound in my head? And I was like, oh, that's weird. But I got to a place where I felt comfortable with it. And I still meditate now. This is years later. So it was very helpful to me. I'm out of my depth on hearing the inside of your head thing. What I can say with some confidence is that lots of unusual things happen as the mind gets concentrated in the level of discursive thinking goes down. Yes. And I think for me that just experience of paying attention to my mind and noticing my thoughts really translates. To the experience of heartbreak, where you, again, you want to sort of tell yourself the story about who you are and what's happened. And the more you become familiar, I think, with paying attention to your mind, the more you realize this is one story that I'm telling myself in this moment and the story is going to change very soon. As it always does. Yes. I mean, that blends well with me that you're in a situation where you're dealing with a rejection, you're telling yourself a story that you're unlovable, you screwed up or whatever, and then you can catch yourself and through mindfulness and recognize, well, this is an uninvited thought, coughed up by an unfindable ego. I don't need to take it seriously. Exactly. And I think there's also this sense that you become aware of how transient every thought is. And even if you feel stuck for a while in this place of pain and rejection, at some point, you start to, I think, internalize all the messages that you get as a student of meditation, that this isn't going to last forever. Okay, so there is actually in meditation circles. We tend to denigrate stories because they're often egoic yarns that we get caught up in and can't really see the truth or at least can't even see another angle on a situation. However, you did at least according to this list, I'm looking at harness the power of narrative in a healing sense by sort of writing things down. Specifically, writing things down that you disliked about your ex. Yes. Yes. As a writer, I'm a fan of narratives of all kinds. I did read a study showing that negative appraisal of your ex can be very helpful for healing. So you write down all the things you didn't like about that person. Instead of just pining for them, which is something that some people do after they've been dumped. They sort of romanticize the relationship. Maybe they think that person was actually really great. And they want that person back. They sort of forget the bad things. And so yeah, so I wrote down the negative things. I was like, oh yeah, I really hated it when he did this. I hated it when he did that. And their data to support this approach? Yes. And there's also data in terms of narrative writing about what you're learning from this experience, psychologists in a study will ask participants to write down what went wrong in the relationship and in the breakup, and then in another group, they'll ask participants to write, what are they learning from what happened? And where do they want to go from here? And it's the people who wrote in the second study group, but not the first, who reported feeling less depressed, less anxious and more optimistic afterwards. So, you know, there are different questions that we can ask. That help take us to a different narrative. And I think that's important to remember. Another technique was psychedelics, including MDMA and psilocybin. How did you come to that? And what was it like? And was it useful? Oh boy, yes, big questions. Well, as someone who writes a lot about nature, I was very interested in this emerging science of awe. And the ways in which when we experience awe, again, it sort of takes us out of the soundtrack of our minds out of our kind of ruminative mode. And makes us feel more connected to the world around us. Makes us, in fact, feel more connected to each other, makes us feel more connected to the universe. When we experience awe, our ego becomes less significant in this way that turns out can be very healing for people.

"So for me, it was certain moments in my marriage or certain moments during the breakup that were very upsetting to me. And then at the same time, in this particular group context, what we did was we tapped our shoulders, first our right, then our left, and our right, and our left, as we were recalling these events, and then we actually drew pictures before the Tapping and after. And in these pictures, we would draw with very large crayons, it wasn't supposed to be artwork, but we would draw what those emotions look like to us. And the amazing thing is that, yeah, after Tapping, I did feel a little bit less provoked by the emotions I was having. It was like, oh yeah, this is a memory. This is a bummer, but I'm less worked up about it as I was when I got here. Can you remind me what is EMDR stand for? It stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. And I guess the woman who discovered it, I think actually discovered it on a walk where she was having some painful memories and she was looking right looking left, looking right, looking left, and then of course walking, right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot. And there was just something about that bilateral movement that helped her sit with the memories a little bit longer and not feel quite as activated by them. So you were Tapping though, not doing eye movement stuff, or at least from what I could hear. That's right. There was no eye movement in this because it wasn't one on one with the therapist. It was sort of a bunch of us in a room. And so we were Tapping. And it's kind of neat because researchers are trying to think about how they might be able to translate this therapy to large populations. For example, after a natural disaster, where a whole community might be traumatized during a war, things like that. And so this is this Tapping is one way you can actually work with large groups at the same time. Is there evidence to support EMDR? There's a lot of evidence. Yeah, and I was a little bit skeptical of it because it sounds kind of weird. Why would Tapping on your shoulders make a difference? But yeah, I just went with it. I was willing to try a lot of different things. And the evidence is pretty strong. Bessel van der kolk talks about this quite a bit. There are more and more studies coming out all the time. Definitely worth trying. I don't think it works for everybody, but it can be helpful. So the next thing on this list here, you've already made reference to it, but I think it also bears some further love and attention. You embrace the modality of nature. Sometimes even on your own. Yes, absolutely. You know, I had written this other book called the nature fix, which is about how being outside makes us happier and healthier and more creative. I was very predisposed to think that nature could just fix my heartbreak. And maybe I needed really big nature, maybe I needed to go into the wilderness and I decided to spend 30 days on a river trip. I have a lot of experience canoeing and running rivers. So I planned this 30 day river trip down the green river in Utah. And I decided actually to do half of it alone. Solo, which I had never done before, I'd never spent a night in the wilderness alone, but I felt compelled to do it because I needed to learn how to be alone. I had never lived alone in my entire life. Needed to learn how to be self reliant. I wanted to try to access my bravery again because I felt so anxious and afraid about my future. So that was the motivation. Did it help? Knew you're going to ask that. You know, I really wanted it to help. I wanted it to cure me. I wanted to write this book and be done. I was like, okay, this river chip's going to cure me. It's going to be great. It's going to be this great dramatic ending. I'll be all shiny and wonderful afterwards. And that's not what happened. I had a good river trip. I think I did access bravery. I think I did learn how to paddle my own boat. I think that metaphor was real and helpful. But we measured my immune system cells before and after the river trip. And they were kind of the same. My body was still putting out a lot of transcription factors indicating a state of threat. And in fact, I said to Steve Cole at UCLA, I was like, oh, do my cells look like those of a lonely person still? And he said, yes, I'm afraid they do. So I was like, okay, now there's more to this book. I have to keep going. And I think why it didn't work is that when we're alone in the wilderness, we don't feel safe. And we're not supposed to feel safe. You're constantly looking over your shoulder. You can't screw up. You can't hurt yourself. You can't tie the boat in wrong. You can't light the beach on fire. You have to really. You have to pay attention to stay safe. And that's just not a relaxing state of mind. So does it cast any doubt on the commonly held belief that nature is, if not a cure, at least a bomb for whatever ails us? Well, I want to be careful to say no. I don't think it indicates that at all. I think that during the times I was in nature with other people, were especially healing still and helpful. For me, being in nature is usually a very calm activity. I can listen to the birds. I can see things that are beautiful. I can get out of the soundtrack of my mind a little bit and into this place that psychologists call the soft fascination of nature. You see a butterfly in front of you and you notice it. You can't help but notice it. So in general, I think it's still a helpful place to be, but that kind of impulse to do the solo wilderness trip, not the best thing for me at that moment. So not the best thing for you at that moment, and yet, for listeners and important things to tune into is that nature can have a lot of benefits. Would you mind just saying a little bit about what the data show on this score? Yeah, sure. There's loads of data suggesting that when we're outside and what we consider a pleasant not threatening and situation outside. So a pretty setting that we feel drawn to. We know that our heart rate can slow down our respiration slows. We start taking deeper breaths. Our blood pressure drops and in fact, we know even our blood sugar can sort of drop after just even 15 or 20 minutes outside. So it's really great for our nervous systems to be out in nature.

"Hey, we're probing a mystery on the show today. Why from an evolutionary standpoint, do we take rejection at heartbreak so hard? It can send the body and the mind into a vicious spiral. As one genomics researcher has said, heartbreak is one of the hidden landmines of human existence. There are countless pieces of art dedicated to heartbreak songs, movies, poems, the list is pretty much endless, but what does science say? Why does this happen to us? And how exactly does the body react to a bad breakup from a romantic partnership, a friendship, even a job? And of course, this question, how do we get over it? These are all questions that the writer Florence Williams decided to tackle after her own 25 year marriage fell apart. And the answers she found are fascinating. Florence Williams is a science writer and author and a contributing editor at outside magazine, her new book is called heartbreak, a personal and scientific journey. It's just out in paperback and has been nominated for the Penn Wilson award for literary science writing, which is a big deal. And this conversation we talked about how men and women react differently to heartbreak and rejection, a medical phenomenon called broken heart syndrome. Why Williams believes we can feel heartbreak individually as well as collectively, whether heartbreak is an evolutionary feature or bug. Why some people don't get over heartbreak, very easily, the health impacts for both the dumper and the dump E contagious trauma versus contagious resilience and the many, many things Williams tried in her own effort to recover from heartbreak, including talk therapy, spending time with other people who are experiencing heartbreak, EMDR, which is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, visiting the museum of broken relationships and embracing nature. Just to say this is the final episode in our two week Valentine's Day counter programming series. If you missed the prior episodes in which we explored friendship, family drama and the myths of love and sex, go check them out. Before we get started with today's show, I want to tell you about something really awesome that we're doing around here. Back in October, I flew to India to spend a few weeks in dharamsala, that's a small city nestled at the foot of the Himalayas surrounded by beautiful Cedar forests. It's also home to tenzin Gyatso, who you probably know as the 14th Dalai Lama. He has claimed that the purpose of life is to be happy so I went with a small team to ask him how exactly are we supposed to do that? How do we get happier? We got answers. A lot of them, and we're going to share them with you in a completely free ten day meditation challenge, which we are calling the Dalai Lama's guide to happiness. We're going to help you learn how to be happier with help from two people who have devoted their lives to the investigation of human happiness. His holiness, the Dalai Lama, of course,
The Battle of Monteverdi explained
"And what I want to do in this segment is complete my discussion of the terrace of pride and in the next segment I want to talk about the terrorists the next terrace, which is the terrace of envy. Now these are very big and bad sins and part of the part of what we learned from Dante is why they are so bad. What is it that makes pride the deadliest of the deadly sins? What is it that makes envy so destructive and so corrosive? Now, in the terrace of pride, we've met a politician named umberto, as well as an artist named Odyssey, both in a sense being purged and cleansed of the sin of pride. And now we're going to meet a third man and this guy's name is salvani. Now province I'm sylvani. Was the great Victor at the battle of. If you remember back to canto 5 of the inferno, we met this imperious character. Florentine, named farinata, and what he did was he betrayed his own city, Florence, and he made allies with Siena. And together, the ghibellines of Florence and the sienese army invaded Florence defeated the guelphs. That was the battle of Monty parity in the late 13th century.

Biden Says Pope Francis Called Him a Good Catholic
"Get to. I want to start with the globalists scenic tour throughout Europe. Now, I spent about an hour researching at this this morning and I found very little coverage about this. It was just kind of almost it was coverage as if this was the Emmys, or if it was the Oscars. It was like here's who showed up, here's what they wore. Here's how they wore their mask and the only questions reporters asked is who are you wearing? You know, what sort of fashion icon? Are they, are they, I guess advertising. So it started in Rome with the G 20 summit. Now these summits are largely a waste of time. It is nothing more than political theater. Joe Biden met with the Pope for an unusual amount of time. There is some Internet suspicion that there might have been something that happened in that meeting. We're going to do our own independent reporting until we kind of go through mentioning that one, but it's very strange meeting between Joe Biden and the Pope. And then the Pope comes out and he says, no, actually Joe Biden said with the Pope said, I don't think the Pope actually set up. He said, he had a Pope just wants to say, I'm such a great Catholic. Which I find very interesting for someone who is okay with a million abortions a year every single year how the Pope could call him a good Catholic, but I am not Catholic, therefore I'm not going to say much else about this Pope. You guys can email me your thoughts freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com for faithful Catholics out there that have opinions of what he has been doing or his certain perspectives. And so that's what it started in Rome, and now they're in Glasgow, Scotland. And so they all flew from Rome to Glasgow for a climate change event. So the most obvious first question is, why did they stay in Rome? Or they needed a real venue change? Why did they go to Naples or Florence? They could have just took a bus. Instead, they had to load up on private planes, and fly all the way to Glasgow, Scotland for the continuation of the internationalist climate change conference. And so Biden has been pushing for a borderless society while he was in the Vatican one of the most militarized walled off communities in kind of nations on the planet. And then he gets in a private jet, Air Force One and flies to

And that's the different worlds and trying to get different clues and that's kind of where the national treasure comes in because i love natural treasure. What a great movie. The second one. The first one that was amazing with with all the clues and the different strategies that they used and then another clue would come up. And that's kind of what this book is about. They have some interesting sexy characters. Hip walk characters. With jared and alex and people that are trying to get information using the clues to kind of get all of the things that they need to save pass landed and it's really an interesting way of doing a book because she's giving kind of that fantasy fun and then she's also making it where you have to think and i think that's what i like. It's not one of these books that you just read and silly and all this nonsense you really. Don't you leave your brain at the door. This one's fun because you try to figure out the clues try to figure out the questions and there's a twist and turn to a lot of the things you think you figured out it goes on a totally different direction. And that's what i really liked about. This book definitely an emotional roller coaster. They even have like a family feud of sorts. Something that is revisited in the book. And you know there's a lot of tension or is it adventure twists and turns asked what kept me with the book turning the pages and not wanting to put it down love the character. I especially love alex. And i think that when you are writing a book of this kind i think that it is really important to be able to have the reader connect with one or some of the characters. It's a very important thing especially when you're getting into that fantasy and you're one of those sort of buy in your fingernails seeing what's going to happen next. It's sort of like make believe and pretend so. It's good to have a character that you can really connect with. I agree well said. Because i think also what i like is there's different aspects of each personnel. He of the characters and you could kind of. It's not like marvel were. Oh my gosh. I relate soda iron man or something like that because he can't because they have superpowers. So but you can relate in kind of the quizzical nature of the of the different characters. Also their thought processes how a man and a woman would think each kind of clue out. And i think that's what i really enjoyed about. It is and then also trying to figure out the clues along with the other characters. I think it's really interesting so to me. If you're into lands of your into the fantasies you're into the relationships there is some adult content. so again we just want to let you know that there is some adult content. But it's very much a book that i think if you're into fantasy and you're into the different worlds. You're ended the kind of fast pace national treasure type situation with the book. You will really love this now florence. I'll give you the last word on. And i'm looking forward to the third one which caroline is definitely working on. I was just going to say. I am looking forward to the third one as well because this second book kind of leaves you wanting more i will say that and i was pleasantly surprised. I have a lot of young adults in my family. I have a lot of kids in their late teens. And early twenties. They will absolutely love love. This book and i know for a fact that my nieces and nephews were very very big fans of the harry potter type books lord of the rings and all those movies and for something like this threads of blood and still would definitely be a book i would say for teens and young adult readers. It does keep you on the edge of your seat. I two books. I would say absolutely i would get them together. And then this way when the third book comes out you're all set and then christmas. I know it's still august. But hey christmas will be here before you know it. So why not. I mean if you have young reader in your family somebody who loves reading loves these fantasy novels and so absolutely i get it five stars. That was the other thing i was like. I wanna give an honest serious review. And i absolutely would give it five stars because i think there's something in it for everybody and also make sure that you go onto facebook and instagram and twitter and caroline is very active online. She's fun she's artistic. She just went to comic. She did 'cause play. She's a fun person to follow a lot of things going on. She's a great artist. She does some artwork.

Last week it seemed everyone felt the need to feel more joy and have more fun. People have been working very hard and being too serious so they recognize the need to lighten up and enjoy themselves. I was happy to respond to this. Need with a meditation that relies on your imagination to travel across the atlantic. If you're in the us to europe or from wherever you are having produced more than six months of podcast now one thing that really surprised me is how many people have listened to my episode about saint patrick's day it's had more downloads in any other episode. Perhaps listeners are taken in by the idea of connecting with the luck of the irish which is the title. And on that journey you go to visit the blarney castle which was really fun. Maybe it's just something novel in different. I'm not sure but anyway it gave me this idea to create more travel related. Visualization and meditative podcasts. Now i know everyone has a different idea of what fun might be but today we're going on a trip to florence italy in this vivid meditation which packs several exciting an iconic destinations in along the way.

Machiavelli Demystified With Dr. Khalil Habib
"Habib. Welcome back to the charlie kirk show. Charlie's fit to be with you so we kind of stumbled into machiavelli. Last conversation and i promised our listeners. We will get back to it commonly you'll hear on cable television with almost no explanation. Someone say well. That's very machiavelli by this politician. Or that's very maquiavelian. And i think people at best have a very surface knowledge of machiavelli Who was this man. And why was he so important. So machiavelli was born in florence italy and you lived during the middle of fifteenth century. And he lives at a time during the renaissance where there was growing frustration with politics with the church Time for corrupt and it was a movement known as the renaissance that wanted to revive classical virtue stress. The emphasis of moral education on restoring civic harmony and restoring as states crap essentially machiavelli comes in and crashes in on this party and says that's a no go. You can't restore politics on classical moral virtue. And so what. He wants to spread in books like the prince which bookies most famous for today although does this is many years ago was one that people mostly focused on. He presses that of politics requires a cunning. You have to be manipulative. You have to be willing to use force there when you're gonna have to break with traditional moral virtue To essentially affect transition in politics for example One of his many critiques of the renaissance and the attempted to bring christianity in classical moral virtue. Together in a modern republic machiavellian. The prince talks about a situation in which a group of christians in a small town wanted to deal with criminals unchristian grounds and he says well this guy treasury borja who was a brutal dictator essentially showed mercy to the innocent by crushing. These people not turning the other cheek so in other words you measure your your use of force in relation to your end goal and if it's to bring about law and order you don't do it by a holding some kind of classical moral virtue forces necessary and so that forced burns the reputation of some kind of gangster Sort of a low philosophy a politics but It's incredibly influential and foundational in many

"I heard about this. I know it was a media sensation and like the late mid nineties. Ninety six the verdict came down in ninety four. Yeah and i know that this was an event that was directly. Parodied on seinfeld. Which i think is kind of a litmus test for cultural relevance and the seinfeld version is that kramer is going to a movie theater and he's trying to smuggle in a cafe lot hey and he gospels it. Somehow it burns his leg and he's like i'm going to sue the coffee company because the coffee was too hot and like what a ridiculous thing to sue anyone for making hot coffee hot. It's supposed to be hot. Her and all of this is based on a case. Where there is this. Elderly woman named florence. Liebeck it's actually stella liebeck. Stella why do i think her name's florence. Is there a florence liebeck. I think you're thinking of florence in the coffee machine alright. Stella that's great. What a great name. Who went to mcdonald's drive-thru and she ordered a hot coffee and it spilled somehow and she got burns from the coffee and she sued mcdonalds and the way the story went was mcdonald's had given her like thirty trillion dollars. And there was this sense of lake will what next like. Why doesn't everyone sue every large corporation for a lot of money for a product behaving in a predictable way. Yeah i mean the term that you heard a lot at the time was jackpot justice. Was this idea that people are doing these completely normal things like we've all spilled coffee on ourselves and blowing them up into these like. Oh my life was never the same. After i spilled up. You know luke warm cup of coffee on myself. It's the juxtaposition between this completely. Every day normal thing that happens to everybody and the massive settlement that this woman got by suing mcdonalds and then also i feel like maybe this isn't true but my understanding was that it was because of this like whenever you get a beverage from anywhere still today. If it's hot it'll say like caution contents

And i'm so grateful for it. So i welcome in. I want get started with a channel brought umbrella of a question. It you're writing lawrence taylor. The play on broad wish and part of her character description was a sewing philosophy. What would it be. I look at sowing as my love. Language to myself to my family to my friends. So it's wearable of wearable ma. That is so beautiful because sewing. Came from a place of love for me. When i didn't think i I was worthy of it and when he was missing in terms of avoid of my mom. passing away so when anybody that i love where something that i think. They have to know that little whisper into the sewing. That's why so with an old machine. I whisper thoughts. And i say things.

Olivia Rubens on Her Unique Knitting Designs
"So right before. The uk went into lockdown one of the final in-person fashion events for me was seeing the l. c. f. m. a. graduate. Show at the camden roundhouse. And i remember thinking. Oh my goodness who is this. Designer with. These amazing knits balaclavas. And i've never seen a style like yours. Before i mean your collection was on one hand so technically exquisite and on the other hand very dystopia and with you know the doll head handbags construction. Could you tell us what the influences behind your collection were. Yeah thank you so much. Wow yeah seems like is very odd. That was a time when i wasn't even thinking about kobe. It was on the other side of the world and all i was thinking about this collection out on the runway. It was really about you. Know overall femininity and identity might view grant in the end ended up. Being quite nihilistic which was that we can never fully know who we are as people and as women Somebody said something to me. Wants which was just that in order to know yourself completely. You have to meet every single person on the planet because you'll present a certain version of yourself to every single different person so unless you do that. It's impossible so i kind of ran with that. I was also kind of making criticisms about myself. Like i like to do. Just kind of point out little funny things by society in about myself and other and other people and the way that we kind of assume people's identities i think is hilarious like people watching which was something you know at the time that i was doing a lot because i'm sitting on the tube like so many hours of the day so that was part of it. It's just kind of assuming people's like based on stereotypes and kind making up stories in our heads. Because what else are we gonna do. We're sitting on the to and then this this idea of nature versus nurture so. I used victorian children as references. I came across this little vintage book at the vintage fair. A pitiful audie in florence. And i just thought it was so hilarious because these these children. Which are you know. They're supposed to be fun and playful and crazy but they were just so static and each one of them was so serious. And when i was reading up on victorian photography they had to compete with painters at the time for some reason always turned out serious and so all these photographs that they really style them like we have to get it right but when arguably now we would we would say that we capture someone's full essence when we get a candid photo of them so that was really funny and then the the modern version of that was hatching girls and do they become who they are because their parents are because of them or did they choose to do that. And so there were some hilarious references in their garments and i watched way too much reality. Tv and which is where all the toys and the dolls came from in that whole collection.

A Review of the Newest Addition to the MCU: Black Widow
"I mean, the Marvel universe. Fans have been waiting for this for months and months and months, and now it's available. In theaters, and it's also on Disney plus so that you can see it there as well. It's going to be the apparently the only black widow films since Scarlett Johansson's character actually died in adventures and came this story has said a little before that. And she goes back to Eastern Europe in order to track down and ruined the great Russian spymaster who made her into a spy in the first place. And she also reunites with her fake family with which you were who she was an undercover spy in the United States in the 19 nineties in order to bring this fellow down, so it's a combination of family drama. Shall we say? With a big action, splashy action movie. I found the intimate moments in this film actually better than the action ones, which are in the typical modern way over cuts so that you can't really tell what's going on a lot of time and just overloaded with C G I the real star of the film, Although Johansson is very good is Florence Pugh. Who plays her younger, so called sister. They were sisters when they were undercover spies, and they unite along with their father and mother in order to bring down this terrible Russian mastermind who still wants to dominate the world with his army of brainwashed young women called widows. Uh, the people who Fans of the far Marvel universe are going to love this film. They're going to go out to it in droves. They're going to pay for it and dizzy. Plus, it's going to be a huge success. But it's really a kind of footnote to the series as a whole. It doesn't advance the overall marble saga very much. And as I say, it's probably a one off for Scarlett Johansson's Who cares whose character unless she miraculously comes to life will have to remain dead after this episode. Alright, that's black Widow Next up, Don Cheadle and

I was a bit of a situation with a class and i turned to the professor to ask question. I must have backed up. Just a touch. I had shorts on at that point in time. And i knew i backed into something. Because the tips of leaves are bordering on being that of a needle. I understand they use the indian people used to indigenous people used to strip the leaves of some of their vantage and so on and use them as wine or minor rope and so on. Yucca is the name of the plant yucca is has been for. I don't know we can have now and going on. It's about i think half over tall boring on four and a half five five and a half feet tall. The leaves are staying at. Oh i don't know need to buy and then up comes this stem gangly looking thing when it first starts up when it starts to flower. It's very different now. Summer white white and beyond that summer kind of a creamy white there is a variegated form.

"So when that house where florence price lived and where she never returned after her sudden death was finally sold in two thousand nine and the discovery of her music was made. Huge amounts of her music are suddenly available. Some of these were known and feared lost. Most of this music was never published. There are art songs that no one knew she wrote concertos. Wow huge amounts of solo vocal pieces of symphonies. That have never seen the light of day and here they all are and now. Her music is everywhere. It is gaining so much popularity. There are so many people studying and publishing and working on her music and we're really seeing what an astounding talent lawrence price truly is. I only can hope that her story will help. Encourage other women of african american composers to write one day their music too. I believe we'll be championed..

"Teaching piano doesn't pay very well then or now as though and she is occasionally sometimes almost homeless. She's living in settlement houses. She ends up living with one of her students for awhile in exchange for lessons just trying to make ends meet and yet through all of this. She still composing her arrangement. Of my soul's been anchored in the lord was performed by the brilliant marian anderson at her famous concert at the lincoln memorial but it was the last song and so it was cut from the national broadcast on tv. Saw it but everyone there saw it. But she is being recognized more. And more as a real prodigious talent and she is putting out music at an astonishing pace but between the depression and then paper shortages during world. War two not much is getting published Eventually she moves to an apartment. In the abraham lincoln center which is a sort of a communal living building settlement house in chicago. That is focused on arts. So all of the people who live here are musicians. Artists writers and she has an apartment and piano studio. She can teach lessons well. She's one of the only black women living there. Most of them are white but she is supported here at least in her pursuits in a way that she has not been in many other places. Wow she is the most popular teacher of course lincoln center And she has over one hundred students. Now that kills me weaver up with music to your parents and we know what thirty students yes looks like In your life one hundred students. I can't begin to imagine how our that she's working. Wow but she has a place to live. She has food and she's making enough money down. Live and then finally in nineteen fifty-three she is invited to go on tour. Her music has been performed by several european orchestras. She is going to be given an award in paris. And the ultimate dream of any classical composer is finally coming true for her. She is going to go to europe. She is over the moon. She's going to tour perform and sightsee was she's most excited about in ranson england and several other european countries. She has prepared for months and she is set to leave on may twenty sixth four paris on the eel defrantz liner. Wow and then now on may twenty fourth now. She goes to the hospital severe heart troubles. Oh see has suffered with heart trouble her whole life what they call blue baby syndrome when you're circulatory system just is not working well and so you look blue. Your skin turns blue because you're not getting enough oxygen because your heart is not beating effectively enough her whole life. She's been struggling with this and she is in heart failure She dies ten days later of a cerebral hemorrhage and never gets to make her trip and is that why that house full of was. Just abandon yes. She never goes home so nobody went to the house. Nobody said let's go get that music. She has three children. Nobody authored Yeah it's very confusing from this point of view mysterious. Get into some muddy water. This might be a weird legacy of a very common problem for mixed race people at that time and now that it is much better for them if can pass as white. Wow but that requires cutting off your family cutting off your identity and there are so many people who had to make that choice and decide literally to never speak to their family again. Change their name disappear. Start over so that they can escape from the incredibly heavy load with being black in america. Florence's mother did this. After florence's father died she disappeared from arkansas and reappeared in indiana as a white woman it stands to reason that florence prices children may have done the same thing. It's really baffling as a white person to think about having to navigate these kinds of decisions but it makes more sense how her legacy could just be walked away from. Yeah how even a home could just be abandoned mia if that might endanger your safety in your.

"It very easily could have been him that this mob decided to grab instead. I could imagine for certain. My family is in a car and out as soon as possible. Wants to go. Reconstruction period ended whether you were black and educated or black uneducated. You were all treated the same way poorly so much. so that. When her father passed away her mother decided it was just too hard and she disappeared from the historical record by passing as white. She moved to indiana and began a life right person. There was really nothing in her background at prepared. Her for the level of discrimination and brutality that you were facing if you stayed in little rock this lynching marks a real turning point for the black community in arkansas just as is happening all across the south at this point the black families who can get out are getting out. She and her family drove to chicago. And so i drew the chicago to see what that felt like or dislike look like after after experiencing that this means that thomas price has to start from scratch abandoning this flourishing legal practice where he is a partner. He's been arguing cases famous cases before the supreme court. And now they're back at nothing. She has her studio for students. The amount of stress that this must have causes unimaginable on top of everything else going on at this point the prices have two children and florence price starts publishing music. Four children beginner music for beginner. Piano students as a former piano teacher. I appreciate that hugely because yes there are no songs that are thrilling to write the average seven year old. You need somebody who knows how to hack something exciting and simple at the same time as the mother of three piano students. I heartily agree.

You have to have some other things happen to make it all together. She was a single mother. She was a black woman and trying to work in a field where that was not the usual demographic so she has so many things working against her yet. She managed to make this art. I think many of us have had that experience of trying to cram our stuff into the margins of everyone else's demands. Yeah but in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. She is working on a symphony and she gets a lucky break. Literally in this one little passage in the book that i love to read in january nineteen thirty one. The very month in which her bitter divorce was final. Price began work on her first symphony. Her most important and largest work to date in a letter to a friend she wrote. I found it possible to snatch a few precious days in the month of january in which to write undisturbed. But oh dear me..

"Who needed to be educated and her family were kind of educational activists in that regard and then reconstructions the push back against this idea of equality starts really in earnest in arkansas and things start to slide backwards very very quickly. Segregation is thoroughly entrenched. Jim crow laws are firmly established. And the little rock that florence was born in is not the one that she will live in for very long but florence is a superstar. She is incredibly bright passionate about learning. Her mother is her first piano teacher and it becomes quickly apparent that florence is wildly talented. She graduates high school at fourteen years old valedictorian of her class. She was so strongly prepared that when she entered into the new england conservatory. Moving from little rock arkansas boston. She was just sixteen years old so in her formative years she was given this sense of pride a sense of determination a sense of just what it would take for her to be a successful musician. Things are getting pretty bad for black people in arkansas and on her mother's urging she takes this opportunity to pass any see accepts black students but she decides it will be much easier if she is mexican oh and so her first year at new england conservatory she lists her hometown as pueblo mexico interesting and she definitely can pass her. Mother may have been passing as white for a period of her life. Florence probably could definitely can pass us mexican rather than african american. Wow she excels at new england conservatory studying with their top composition teacher as well as brilliant organist and pianists graduates with two degrees oregon performance and piano teaching particularly. I think it's important for people to understand how difficult it was for a woman to be heard in the classical music scene in america at that time to when she left new england conservatory as a totally prepared organist pianist and composer. She came home and became a teacher. Which is what was expected of women at that time particularly a single woman at the time so she did not lead the typical artists life. The typical male are. Let's say she's had always societal pressures along the way about what she was supposed to do and couldn't could not do and even when she did marry she married a successful lawyer in little rock she still was responsible to take care of the children and to somehow fashion a career and artistic career around this so she was teaching piano lessons and children's music at that time was a big thing for her and it fits into a larger pattern of women who are artists and who are also chowdhury for instance. You have some women artists who may be painters but they turn to print making because it's easier to manage young people around that particular medium and as soon as the kids start kindergarten they move back painting Benchley she moves back to little rock to marry a promising young attorney thomas price. He is quickly becoming a partner in his law firm. A very successful practice. She's teaching piano from their home and continuing to write music. She entered and won. Second place in to national competitions in nineteen twenty five and nineteen twenty seven for major works for concertos.

She appears to be a musician Probably short because her bedroom is up in the attic off with low ceilings had a lot of house plants. Ooh and she had a dog.

All handwritten oh scattered around randomly all over the only room that remained intact in this out of the house is completely falling apart holes in the roof water everywhere but this one room in the center has remained intact and in. This room are books and sheet music. Ooh the couple who bought this house and were trying to remodel it stumbled onto this fine of all of these papers and they kept seeing the same name over and over again on these manuscripts florence price. They had no idea who this was and they could very easily have just crammed all of this old paper into a couple of garbage bags. Thrown it away and carried on with their remodel. Thank heavens google.
