What’s the Best Water Source?
"Call it. Like water quality ascension. So we start with you know. We've got the tap walker that that's coming through people's faucets at home. It's coming to showers and what's happened to this water is it's it's been so process you know we. We don't look at water as a living pretty much life sourced you know. She's like i think we take water for granted so we put it through these pipes and it goes through unnatural processes that it doesn't really need to go through. Maybe but we're doing it because we want to take out all the toxins and stuff like that so that's tap water and imagine if you are trying for the rest of your life you're gonna eat frozen dinners and fast food. But you're expecting it to nourish your body the same way that produce and natural foods that occur in the world would nourish us So that's like tap water and ever i. It's awesome. Because i think everyone is kind of starting to wake up to help bad. Their water is that they're drinking so then. We moved to bottled water and bottled water. Obviously you're in the single use plastic bottles So that's like knock great for the environment but it's also it's going through the same process. That tap water is going through. It's basically recycled tap water. In these companies they do usually process it. Goes through reverse osmosis They're taking it also from you. Know small rural towns and country and basically having. They're selling it back to these people. They're almost like stealing their water. And then selling it back to them at like a thousand percent markup which kinda sucks next year. Bpa sake toxins in there too. Oh my gosh and like think about how how long the water is actually sitting in those bottles before it reaches the shelves like sometimes it can be like eight to twelve months or something like that. I think and obviously the the plastics in the water. It can leak into the water. It's just a total mess but Then you moved to bottled water. You know it's not. It's not that much better than tap water and then you move to like a filter filter which okay now. We're we're kind of in the same area but we're using less plastic. So that's great. I love that And it's it's a good option for people at home. It's a good start. Then you move to things like reverse osmosis or a rookie Burke's kind of. I don't fully understand how they work But then reverse osmosis is taking everything out of the water right which is also a good start. But it's it's taking the good stuff out of the water so think about this. If you are drinking reverse osmosis. There's nothing in your water. there's no minerals. Nothing water needs minerals. So we're drinking. It's almost like rick drinking it. And the reverse osmosis starts pulling minerals of our body and then we p it out because we can't really absorb it

The Mission to Get to Europa, Featuring David W Brown
"Episode we're going to explore europa the icy moon of jupiter and the mission to get there. Nasa is currently building that you rope. A clipper spacecraft which will begin. Its voyage to the jovian moon in twenty twenty four joining us today to discuss his new book about this mission is david w brown. David is an award-winning writer. Whose work appears frequently. In the new york times scientific american and smithsonian he's an aunt arctic owner and endurance runner a former us army paratrooper and a veteran of f. Ghanistan david just released his latest book. The mission an amazing behind the scenes narrative of nasr's deep space mission to jupiter's moon europa where alien life just by exist in an ocean beneath the frozen surface. David thank you so much for joining us. They really appreciate it. Thank you very much for having me. It is a pleasure. I am loving your book. The mission i think is fantastic. My third of the way through so not quite there yet. But i do want to ask you. The mission is about europa. Now some our listeners know that europa muna jupiter others might not but keep us a little bit more about why europa is so fascinating and why. It's important that we explored we rope a is a is a of jupiter. It's about the size of our moon. i guess the big difference between our moon and that moon is there's Two three times more water on europa than there is on planet. Earth say water. I'm not talking about some weird. It's strange green. Google technical definition of water. But i mean the same stuff is russian. Right you could plunge a cup and into the europan ocean drink it and though it would be incredibly unhealthy for you your body would know what to do with it Consequently if there's anywhere in the solar system likely to have life beyond earth it's europa

I'm going deep in streets and the croissant. Yeah we had learned about this pastry called queen. Amman which is easy to say in to spell and it's a traditional pastry from quebec and it's basically. Oh i'm being told not from quebec. We have to start over. I don't think back yeah. I don't think they can do on their own. Okay let's start this over. It's basically a large. I wanna say like what twelve or fourteen inches round layered butter. Salt sugar dough situation. It's like a croissant but like times hundred. And it's just we i remember. We went to the shop there. It's called queen went to the shop. We just got a slice of pizza. Slice would be the word ends. Yeah i took a by. We're on the street. And i took up by an i was like. Why is everyone not eating one of three. Now i see i see the clouds opening up rainbow. Beam coming down on you is that it was a rainy weekend. We didn't quite think it was going to be that rainy. We left the hotel in the morning hotter. Rain jacket pouring cats dogs. But i was intent on going to clean all and buying an entire full round size of the pastry get there. It's all to see inside. I get a whole one. Which by the way is not even that expensive and the whole thing. I swear it weighs like went ten pounds. I mean it's like it is heavy and they put it in like in like a pizza box pizza sheet box. The thin kind of cardboard ahead a little reusable shopping down with a nylon one. I put it in there and like the skies opened up. I mean it was pouring. All i can do is think of my pork when i'm on that i intended to like bring back home and then freeze half of it. They have reasoning And then course. I stop so we spent the whole wrecks the day walking around. Well it turns out. We were in like the furthest place from any kind of public transportation in a us man. Rain jacket like cover up the bags. When i i mean it was like i would have done anything for this clean among anyway. The moral of the story is it did make it home and we did freeze half of it and we did eventually all of it and it was amazing and worth. I love the fact that you took your jacket off and put it around the queen as as save. You're your little prize that you had that you weren't going to give up. I was not going to give up. It was not going to be sigy no matter what so. That's a good plot for a book which transitions to our next segment books. We have the segment called literary lottie in. It's my own guilty pleasure and we ask each of our guests but their favorite book is. And why. And i can that to my repertoire. While you've probably read my already the hobbit and lord of the rings and the reason for that is i was i think actually johnny introduced it to me Maybe five or so years ago. And i had never read it. I had seen some of the movies but didn't really get any know why it was such a big deal and then i read the hobbit and i was like wow. This is amazing. And they're also it's so many mentions of food and the importance of breakfast and second breakfast in fact our decaf land is called elevensies and that is after elevensies and i just totally fell in love with the world and the stories and such a rich incredible world. And it's just a great story and we can talk anymore because you lump them together so you you've got a person who's going to critique that sounds like the stephen colbert Kind of level of intensity related to that. Because i'm in. I'm in your camp actually charlotte because i love the hobbit and started the lord of the rings trilogy and i ended up skipping around. Because of the time commitment it took to cover them all and and it really hob is right up there at the top of my my favorite books but My my
Useful Accessories for DIY Photo Projects
"This week i'll share five of my favorite. Diy assess freeze and a case study of putting some of them to us. I hope you enjoyed the show. In article published on medium dot com. I wrote about the handedness of my photo cesary drawer. Some folks might call a junk drawer but nothing could be further from the truth. I have a number of items in there that had become essential components. When i'm trying to come up with a diy solution. And i have some of my favorites for you today. These are the ones that i seem to go to time. And time and time again now there are more of course because after all it is a foot drawer so it cannot be limited to just five different types of items but these are five. I think if you had such items in your photo cesary drawer you would find them useful when you're trying to cobble things together to make something fun to maybe save you a few dollars or create something new. So let's start with these in the very first one. The one that i go to often are step up and step down rings. I reach for these all the time and not only do they. Help me adapt filters to lenses that. Say that. I've got a fifty eight filter. That would be perfect for the slams in. It's a fifty five millimeter filter diameter. So i dig around around. And i find that. I have a fifty five to fifty eight millimeter. Step up ring. Well then i'm dennis. I can use that filter. And i don't have to buy another filter just for this purpose.

Nature Makes GMO Fish
"Skeptical of aqua bounties fast-growing salmon while nature makes genetically modified fish to next up. Why the effort to find a quote biological basis for being transgender is misguided and harmful and finally cure for sickle cell diseases inches closer with the launch of a major gene. Therapy trial very exciting stuff. But first up kevin. Let's talk about Natural gm fish apparently. Yeah this is really cool and this is a report that came out in. Cbc news which is canadian broadcasting company usually not writing very favorable things about genetic engineering because this isn't genetic engineering unless it's genetic engineering that nature did so the story goes back to a couple of researchers at queens university. A lorry graham and peter davies found this evidence a while ago now that there was this antifreeze gene that helped the rainbow smelt live through freezing temperatures so super cooling fish and some other organisms can endure temperatures below freezing because of a mechanisms that keep their cells from forming ice crystals. What interesting stuff going on there and if you think about it. These are cold-blooded so when it gets below freezing you have the risk of freezing so years ago. Probably a decade and a half. I guess they found this evidence that there was A this gene that that didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that that it that it looked like a in so we go over now to herring and smelt How was this hearing. Gene ending up and smelt the last time that they were related was by extremely distant ancestor. They said by the article article here. Two hundred and fifty million years ago so that was like the carbon difference period so these two individual lineages of fish split off pretty early a back before dinosaurs or you know and so this really cool so well same time as early dinosaurs.

"Welcome to our women's history month series on skimmed from the couch. Where we're telling you about the women who made history. This past year. Dr laura for east joins us on today's episode. She's the chief operating officer of new york presbyterian one of the largest nonprofit hospitals in the country on her leadership newyork presbyterian has been on the front lines fighting the covid nineteen pandemic since last year. Dr freeze thank you so much for joining us and welcome to skin from the couch so much. It's great to be with you. Your resume is very long as as i think. Doctors and chief operating officers at ten to be wants one job or when experience. You've had that means the most you. I started wanting to be a doctor from the time i was a little girl so it really is about for patients. But i really have shifted. After i was in practice for about ten years. i'm orthopedic surgeon. And i moved to become a fulltime hospital executive. Because i thought i'd be able to have more impact in so now is the chief operating officer of big hospital system. My job is really to make sure that the business runs so that our doctors nurses have everything that they need to do what they do best which is care for our patients so in some ways come full circle from where i thought i was going to be when i was a little girl. How did you know that you wanted to be in medicine when you were a kid. You know carly i have no real good answer for that it just from the time. It was a little girl. I thought that would be a great job. Every kid knows what a doctor is. They're going to help you get better and i was say my parents were always very encouraging. I don't have doctors in my family. But i had that as a little girl and i stuck with it when reading about you. What stood out is that you have one of the things that many that stood out was that early on in your residency twins. And i know everything there to know about med school residencies. Because i've seen grace anatomy. So i am very very educated on your fields. I still watch it. So i feel like i'm right in there but i want you to take us back to to that time. What was that time like for you. Especially at a time when there were very few women in orthopedics. Well let me start with there. Were very few women in medical school class. Unlike today where we have more women medical students than men. It was unusual then and i chose a field that had very few women in it.
"freezing." Discussed on The Bio Report
"Glen. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having gani good afternoon. We're gonna talk about tff. Pharmaceuticals its efforts to reformulate vaccines and medicines with its thin-film freezing process and the implications of the technology in different applications for it. Perhaps we can begin with thin film freezing. What's the process like. How does it work. What's the end result here. Well thanks to the questions. The tried to paint day as vivid word picture as i can describe how this works. But if you in your mind or in the listener's mind can can envision a bulk chemical that ultimately becomes a tablet that people take or a vaccine or botanical. That that's kind of a good start so whatever we have we ultimately try to get it into a solution and the the sort of the constant characteristic of what we do is the goal is to make whatever will working on as absorbable as possible and many pharmaceutical compounds or not ends. The very unique feature of thin-film freezing that works on. I would say almost every if that every type of pharmaceutical compound known to man We've heard about large molecules. Small molecules even botanical in that realm are biologics. But just again think about that and the goal. If if it's not oregon solution is to take that compound into a solution by using something that we call it that our agents that help you know soluble allies pharmaceutical compounds. Now the incipient we use our approved scipion. We don't use anything that is used in the pharmaceutical
How Does Cuttlefish Camouflage Work?
"Cuttlefish be cephalopods stunning ability to instantly change color and texture to blend into their surroundings. Have another newly discovered trick. Researchers have found that these squidgy creatures can freeze their camouflage palette and lock it in place for up to an hour without any energy consuming input from their main nervous system that superpower to hold their disguise for long periods to avoid being detected and thus to avoid being eaten it also helps them snatch their own prey as they can remain essentially invisible as they lie in wait. The finding published in the journal is science not only reveals yet. Another clever strategy of these ocean floor dwelling masters of disguise. It also lends further guidance for engineers hoping to borrow from the animals tricks to develop new technologies such as much that can spring into three dimensions and soft bodied robots. That could say wrap around a human leg to provide support as with many discoveries. Scientists stumbled upon this one nearly by accident. The researchers were working at the marine biological laboratory in whole massachusetts. They were trying to trace. How the cuddle. Fishes nervous system directs. Its skin to transform its three d texture within seconds to blend into the background of say Kelp or iraq when these sliced through one of the two main nerves that runs along the side of a cuttlefish expected. The animal would lose. Its camouflage on the corresponding side of that narrative but instead the three dimensional texture provided by nodes on the skin of the cuttlefish called pathway stayed intact we spoke with trevor ward hill co author of the study and a neuroscientist at the university of cambridge. He said it was really quite surprising. In fact when i saw it generally when you cut input to a muscle it just relaxes and that's the end of it. We thought we did something wrong. But repeat takes. The procedures showed. The phenomenon was no fluke. The animals by the way. We're not killed by the procedure and we're able to continue swimming and feeding in a tank at the nba l. facility. The teams finding is the first time this kind of lock or catch muscle as it's known has been detected in any cephalopod
"freezing." Discussed on Small Doses
"A lot about my personal experience throughout this whole episode but i did talk was just how integral became that. I got a nurse. So i had decided you know what this is not for me. I'm not gonna give myself the shots. And i asked the office if they can provide me with the nurse and so they provided me with the nurse. Her name is julia. Julia came and became a light in the process of doing these shots. Because julia is widely from louisiana. But you can tell that she definitely has been around a lot of black folks and she had no problem high and she wasn't doing it on the annoying thing where why people are trying to add. It was just like no. I just relate as i know about that thing but it started when i was like Like one night. I was like yeah you know. We have to shoot in long beach. Mar the were like what then another night like. We were talking about leaning on things. He's like oh purple giant and it was such a pleasant experience to have her in the mix because she really allowed it to feel less medical and less sterile even though she was absolutely operating from professional place and like someone like me like i needed that level of irreverence for an niagara ranch. But i needed that level of levity in order for me to be able to get through the process because you think two weeks in a long time but doing every doing anything every day particularly to your body does feel like a lot when you're in the midst of it and she just was a perfect mix of compassionate and of professionalism and of information and a. She helped me save money because she was able to do. Certain things with the with the medication on based on her nursing training. That i wouldn't have been able to do in terms of extracting amounts from different places in combining them so it was really worth the money and it wasn't it wasn't a crazy amount of money either but an an and the amount of money that it was worth the animated i was charged wasn't even close to what i got because i feel like she in this process. She was a priceless part of this process. That made it just so much more manageable and in some play in some ways enjoyable. I mean i had to do one Session of shots addresses cousins asi.

"Begin. Dam dam dam dropping in this. Tim drop it's going to be a little more technical. It's freezing your eggs versus freezing embryos so freezing. Your eggs means that you are stimulated. To produce eggs that are then harvested and frozen and freezing. Your embryos means that you are against stimulated to produce eggs that are the but that are fertilized with sperm and thus create the life giving form that is in embryo and those are frozen now the thing about the the biggest difference between the two. Is it a lot more stable than frozen eggs. there are also a lot more expensive. And there's a lot more legality around that because it's a life created from two different people. I think a lot of us have heard about the story of sofia the data who had embryos that she created with her husband and then when they broke up he still wanted to use the rios and make a baby and she was like no. I don't want you to make a baby with my baby. and they. He has a right to because he has two percent ownership. Listen it gets tricky. It gets very tricky. I believe there was also another situation like this similar with sherri shepherd but i can't remember the nuances of it but the reality though is that in every means that like life has been created in frozen in the life growing process. The egg is simply just the egg. Now it could i. Could i apologize. Now if i'm messing up on any of the intricacies of this because again i'm not a professional but this was explained to me when you are born. You give a finite number of eggs as a woman and over the course of your life those eggs will be produced and then they drop and then. Every year i mean every period you release an unfertilized egg. That's what happens your ovaries produce eggs. They comes into the uterus. It doesn't fertilize you. Flush it out with your uterine lining for that month and you start all over again now. The reason why people are like all you know when you're older it's not as great to get pregnant is because you have less eggs and the quality of eggs the best. I dunno this accurate. But i like to think of it as like there. The accident in sitting there the longest. They're just not as a right but nonetheless. It is a reality that women only have ed giving process of giving ability for a certain amount of time and some women unfortunately have lesser amount of legs. And so they go into pre menopause and then other women fertile for long as motherfucking time and then another one that kinda fall within the average space like myself which is kind of like between thirty seven and forty. One there's a drastic decrease in how many eggs you're producing and then those eggs are still. They're still they're still viable but they may not be as abundant so. The embryos are considered to more Sturdy because you've taken the egg into the next phase and so when they freeze it. It's not just like this fragile bag. Because apparently the eggs they can even get fucked up in the design process because at the end of the day. They're still an egg their fragile. So i know people who have made embryos with their partners. I know people that You know have have frozen their eggs and then made an embryo with the frozen ads. It's all you know your unique experiencing unique decision and it's very expensive so i think that's the thing that stops a lot of people from not only freezing exit from going the next step. Which is the embryo. I know for me. I was like. Oh y'all wiling so. I was like you know what we're gonna do this first step. I mean it's roughly freezing. Your eggs is. I'm not even gonna say the number 'cause i don't want even want to scare you. It's not. I'm not saying it's like a hundred thousand it ain't there but it's something you have to plan for. I'll say that absolutely you have to plan for it. And a lot of folks who work in companies where they're able to get it covered by the health insurance that company and so is this something that you wanna do. Definitely look into that because i know a lot of us may not even consider may not even know that. That's an option because we hadn't considered it but it very mel white very well might be where you work so to freeze or not to freeze embryos brielle. That is the question but it can only be answered by you and your associates ten. Am to d d d do so. This is a commercial about bras. That's why we're thinking about day now. I know a lot of y'all don't really know the prophesized yo bras because you've been wearing the same bra for the past fifteen years while third love..

"And the pot has relax. You got a problem also saw that. Check out my corpse before. I dissolve it wait. No that's not. What he was trying to do was trying to do the opposite so he got a bunch of basically they stored him in ice from these hippies freezer so nelson took the frozen guy put him in the back of his truck and drove it over to his friend's house and he said quote it was crazy. I look back on it now. And i think oh my god. So so this guy dr bedford. He's just packed in ice the freezer and a potheads house. Finally the capsule was finished. Bedford was injected with medical grade antifreeze. Oxygen was pumped through his entire system with an apparatus that's called an iron heart. He was then placed in the capsule with dry ice now. Nelson's inexperience wasn't the only issue that created challenges. His organization also didn't have any money. They were often forced to freeze their subjects. Because there were there was more than one nine total that they did. But dr bedford was the first. They were forced to freeze their subjects in dry ice in boxes that were lined with styrofoam pretty much a large styrofoam beer cooler. Body-sized man now they weren't the only organization that was interested in doing this. There are other organizations in the field of cryonics but none of them had employed doctors morticians but nelson eventually got help from amortization and he was the guy that injected the bodies with the right fluids and then was able to store up to three of those bodies packed in ice it as mortuary but by nineteen sixty nine. He was getting uncomfortable with this process. Sure seoul in one thousand nine hundred seventy former. Tv repairman turn dead guy. Freezer bought a large underground vault. Right outside of los angeles and plan to preserve bodies and store them there. There were nine total okay. Many were placed in the same capsules and there they stayed for more than a decade. Did they know that they were going to have shared capsules. I think that that was probably made clear. Okay because i know if i go to the hospital i want a single room to share a room. Someone it's like a it's almost like a corpse where you never know who your roommate's going to be and they're probably aren't going to smell good so the problem with nelson wasn't just financial but it was the biggest problem. He was always running out of money and was consistently faced with problems of replenishing. The dry ice and keeping the irrigation. Going right again. At this point it was very primitive attempt to preserve bodies so after the money ran out by march nineteen seventy nine nelson locked. The vault in just walked away from the venture. Oh inside that cemetery vault. He left nine bodies in liquid nitrogen capsules without any type of constant maintenance. These bodies would be left to decompose. The cemetery ultimately just covered up the entrance to the vault and denied it even existed. They denied having any records of it. That's not what we do know. In that. Same episode of this american life nelson said quote when i did put the lock on the vault. I was heartbroken. I went out into the desert and had a ceremony and said goodbye to these people. I did the best that i could not. Surprisingly he and his partner the mortician were sued by the families for a total of eight hundred thousand dollars. He did settle later on. He said the prosecution had made him look like someone who is trying to start a new religion. He said quote someone trying to bring the dead back. It was a brilliant attack. I couldn't get over it. I mean it's kind of what was happening. I guess technically yeah. I think by this point. It was exhausted. He had no money left so he literally just walked away from cryonics all together and move to a different location and changed his name. He wrote a book in two thousand fourteen. Called freezing. people is not easy. Yes so what happened to dr bedford. Well his body ended up being moved several times over the decades before being relocated in its final destination at l. corps life extension foundation. Oh hey that's where it's been since. Nineteen ninety one when they brought him there in ninety one they removed him from the primitive capsule that he was in and put him in a new more modern capsule at the facility and they said they found him to be quote miraculously well preserved a well developed. Well nourished man. He appeared younger than his seventy three years. Now he'd been wrapped in a sleeping bag and that sleeping bag had frozen to his corpse but they were able to successfully remove it without any tissue damage. He resides to this day on ice at alcoa extension l. life extension foundation. Wow the al corps facility holds about hundred fifty frozen corpses including bump bomb the frozen severed head of baseball. Legend ted williams. I didn't episode on that really early. In the auditees second or third. Yeah there was an expose a book that was written by one of the former employees. There he has since retracted his stories that he told in the book but because well he was they sued as sue the life out of him pretty much care but he said in the book that when they were transferring. Ted's head from one capsule to another. They propped it up on an empty tuna can and the tuna candidate frozen to his head and so they tried to knock. The tuna can rent with a wrench in pieces of his head came off. Yeah well bits of not like skullcap or anything just like pieces of flesh or something like that just chunks of. I'm no big deal. The reason they bit these empty tuna cans was because they had a cat there. I remember is just roman about you. Know i wonder if he kept the kitty litter thing right in their next to the frozen bodies. I think that's probably why i remember the story. Because can i get my information from wikipedia. All things that are interesting the program this american life bob. Nelson's book freezing.

That's not something that i need but i am Growing out of my clothes. And i am so cheap is going to buy new clothes so i'm going to lose the weight. I need to fit into the clothes that i have especially since i haven't been able to wear those clothes for the past year because everywhere where i know somebody on online said i miss my going out close so i put them on. They missed me to apparently because they hugged me. Real hard yeah. I'm also trying to watch what i eat and for me. That means only one can of pringles per sitting. I'm actually really. You have bit really laid off the doritos and the pringles. The last week or so and i'm just really impressed with you. Substituted cucumbers and better. I know it. I know the thing is i do resent you because you can just be like. Oh look i'm gonna stop eating this bag of chips every day and instead drink like a glass of water and you're like look. I lost ten pounds me. I'm like i've eaten nothing but salads for sixteen weeks but you look good gained two. Well thank you. you're welcome. You're so supportive and as a reward for your good behavior. Got a story for you. January nineteen sixty seven. That was the month that the very first person was cryopreserved. After legal death they were the first person. Th- rosen in hopes that in the near future they could be thought out and brought back to life. It seems like something that would have started in the sixties sure. That's that's interesting right not is interesting but what makes this even more interesting. Is that the guy that was preserved was preserved by a tv repairman in to potheads among others. Yes in nineteen sixty five. The life extension society offered the opportunity to preserve one person free of charge saying that. The life extension society quote now. Has the primitive facilities for emergency short-term freezing and storing doesn't really seem like quite the ad you know doesn't really grab ya not the advertising positioning statement. That would wou my business would would coax doctors from my wallet. You know you can picture yourself on the sofa watching a late watching trendy movie or picture your lifeless corpse lying on this beautiful better dry ice completely bloodless and full of antifreeze so that offer was to freeze free of charge. The very first person who wanted to try out cryogenic suspension not surprisingly. I like the first one's free offer. I mean that's very pusher man kind of allergy a cryogenic punch-card. So there were no immediate takers. No no no. But shortly after that. There was dr james bedford. He was an american psychology professor at the university of california. He wrote several books on occupational counseling. When the free offer was made bedford did not Except that opportunity but later he changed his mind and so he became the first kreil patient using his own funds. Basically what he did was he took out a life insurance policy on himself for one hundred thousand dollars and when he died that money went to the cryogenic society. The life extension society unfortunately for him. There were family members. Who didn't want him to do that. And so they fought it in court. I guess his wife and son tried to honor his will. His wishes and others in the family said no. We should have that money so they spent most of it in court fighting it out ads. Crass there were some monies left. So where does the tv repairman come in for his name was bob nelson. He became obsessed. With cryogenics and immortality in the early sixties fixed tv sets. That's what he did. He was a tv repairman but israel passion. He found in the pages of dr robert. Ettinger book the prospect of immortality. This was a book that came out in nineteen sixty two and in it he theorized the death was nothing more than a disease and that it could be cured. The idea of course is somebody dies of a disease you immediately freeze them in the hopes that generations from now maybe even centuries later we would be able to cure these diseases or reanimate dead bodies and they'd be thought out and hey second life. Tom brady still playing on my own. Weird so nelson. The tv repair guy became obsessed with this idea in nineteen sixty six. The life extension society in los angeles was holding seminar in. Bob decided to go nelson told this american life the tv show in two thousand eight that when he decided to go to the first meeting of the suspended animation group. He said quote. I remember going and thinking. I'm not going to be allowed in because i'm not a scientist. I went in and came out voted as president. So this was one thousand nine hundred sixty two and this organization which was a nonprofit was really just made up of people that had they were dreamers. They were interested. They were interested in it. There was really no scientific involvement from l. scientists. There were no medical doctors involved. No morticians nothing. Just a bunch of people thought. Hey this is really cool nonetheless. Dr james bedford. Said i'll give her a go. He was seventy three years old and he died of kidney cancer but not before agreeing to having his body cryogenically preserved by the quote experts from cryonics society of california. Unfortunately dr bedford died. Sooner than he expected hadn't finished building his cryonic capsule that was being constructed in in phoenix. And so he's dead there about three weeks away. From having this capsule completed this cryonic coffin. Essentially what it's like. That's what he's preserved in. That wasn't even close to being done so isn't arizona. Where that other cryogenics lab was that had like. Why are all these cryogenics labs in arizona. It is like the hottest place in the world and you're freezing people l. Core is the name of that. Okay company you're talking about. Why don't they set up shop where it's cold here in bangor maine would save on energy costs for sure. I mean. there's a reason that google has like all of its big computer guys in a cold place. I don't remember the details of that at all. But it's because hot the energy it takes to sure you know so when dr bedford passed away nelson had no choice but to store bedford's body on ice and he didn't have enough ice so he called his neighbors or a couple of hippie pothead types and they said sure. That's you know that's no problem in an article from all it's interesting dot com nelson said quote when we froze bedford. Man had never been to the moon. There had never been a heart transplant. There were no gp s.'s. There was no. Gps were no cell phones. So i just called up my neighbor and said listen. I got a problem. I've got a like a frozen.

"A. Drag show going on right now. Seattle Super D making it happen. Any more thoughts on on how how performance is going to change in either snap back or permanently feel different. I. Think what we're what we're finding right now. Is that a lot of these platforms that we've pivoted to? You? Know like zoom that we're on right now or you know in the terms of. Drag shows like on twitter or instagram live. A lot of those platforms obviously were not built for how we're using them now, so those platforms are going to have to adapt and change in many of them are but I. Think we're also going to seek competitive. platforms appear that are more tailored to. You know doing a radio show on your computer, or you know hosting a drag show on your phone, and when we get those new platforms and innovations that might sort of. Everything up a little bit more and I predict that those innovations might sustain into the future speaking of innovation. One performance venue has shifted its business model. A Portland Oregon Strip club called Lucky Devil Lounge got shut down as a non essential business, but they do have a kitchen, so they decided to become a food delivery business called food to go and They will for a charge. Charge, their dancers will deliver food to you, and they also set up a drive through quoting from the Reuters article here, motorized customers were directed into a large tent where they were greeted from stages on both sides by Pole, dancing, women, wearing sequined masks, gloves, and little else, but pasties, G., string, Bikini, bottoms, and leto boots, the performances, including throbbing music furnished by Dj Stage Lights and prizes. Prizes presented to customers at a safe distance by dancers, using long plastic grabbers like those used to pick up litter. One Dancer who goes by the stage name Karma Jane performed on Friday night in a gas mask and they quoted they interviewed a group of women who drove down from Seattle to see the show, and there are photos of you know dancers in skimpy clothes and masks leaning. Leaning over to take money from drivers windows, and either a was foggy, they were using dry ice and stage lights, and wow. It struck me as apocalyptic cinema, but one of the dancers says she's worked in the business for eleven years. She said quote I missed the athleticism in the opportunity to make tips. The novelty in these really dark uncertain times is just enough to pick people up. So before we go here, it's almost the end of the show anything anything picking you guys up. I was like to leave on on. Some some silver lining or some yes, Joni, I'll do a silver lining. I was having a conversation with somebody and we're talking about.

How these businesses are adapting and coming up with. Can you imagine cars and of all things as as a way to save a business for a period of time, there will be a lot of innovations. I guess and hope and think that that's what I find inspiring at this time. I have a similar. A SILVER Lining in that you know there.

WanNa know is the Seattle freeze real, and even if it is, does that really mean this plague is easier on us than on New Yorkers or Floridians or anyone else so canoed? I'll start with you, you think. The Seattle freeze exists right? Yeah I do there. I do think it exists. I was raised in it I. Practice it to some degree And but it. It's more complicated phenomenon. It's no part of it is like that columnist to me by the way. said about the high high school thing, which is, it's a surface friendliness, but then a kind of with PRI- Privacy Oriented saying I have to admit you know I kind of like the empty streets.

When did this phenomenon start because you know at the Denny's into barons and the people who settled the Apple? Talk about the Seattle freeze so. and traced it back two hundred years ago is the earliest. I find a kind of public debate over Seattle's attitude. Toward newcomers.

"That finicky thousands of dollars then one of the day on for my teeth estimates that women will spend around fifteen thousand dollars freezing there until you know. It's kind of a huge life changing sum of money that our her I started setting aside from that I did for this accept women who already kind of talked with their Stanley. Our other people about you know maybe the money that would offer or downpayment goes to this instead work. You know for good one company that are actually they're offering what they call grandbaby loans where it's headed showed grandparent's are actually in other family members. Involved actress grandparents are actually helping on Who then you're working with your family. You know you're fending. Emily or or your roughly equal funds. And starting work and yeah. I actually loved some of the tips you gave us. I do WanNa get into that later but you mentioned the cost and from my experience the first round it. It is around fifteen thousand dollars for me. The first round did not work and so I had to rebuy some of the shots that I had already used from the last round so it was another two thousand dollars so this starts to get very expensive. The more it happens and you know like I said earlier. I'm thirty seven so for me. It was probably always going to be more than one round. And that's kind of the deal with this so so interesting because someone maybe your age would be physically in a better place to do this process because our eggs have more eggs. Your eggs are better quality but financially like a thirty eight year old usually is not set up to spin this much of a lump sum lately. No I mean we decide. I think finest most important point in that I kept talking about with my editor but also with people as I was reporting then that money is so long for so many younger women and warning for their choices but has your more successful. The younger you are. You know you're able to read my eggs or able to kind of China out more more Way More for your career and with pinafore advantages for how you want to start your way by. What's money that employee? Reach a certain step in your career or certain stuck in your life just doesn't weakness for many better. You're not require that yet I mean the one thing that was really ruminating for me though. I know you're back. The agent one is studying the Bible. Check with said that The Game Changer. For so many women that women who had frozen their end before turning twenty seven at thirty seven. I thirty seven that was then the biggest Differential when it came to their chances of getting pregnant women at thirty seven. Who hadn't proven there were really at him at a much greater disadvantage. When was time length? There's all the junk shirt along the way that her long women is just paint and like super curious and many until you start thinking about it. It's awesome that you woke up in your list. Okay wait now I have two years earlier exactly I mean I think I talk about this a lot and I talked about this on another podcast with a nurse my nurse from EG freezing process but my gynecologist when I turned thirty five was like okay. What are your plans for pregnancy? Like are you in a relationship. What are you looking at here because immediately when you turn thirty five? That is the conversation that starts. It's like I mean they call it a geriatric pregnancy after that which is just absurd. Because I'm feeling great about life at that age and so to think that my body is not going to be able to physically do these things as crazy but it is true and I think that is the reality that women do need to start facing and really looking out which is why this conversation so important to me but luckily we have all these options. Now I think especially for I was reporting a story I was realizing more and more that all the add my impudent worker hotel. Or you know. All if they're way more people in this safe than ever before actually be really helpful that you probably option of really intimidating for has they will which is which is the first step that I should be taking you know. Should I admire the personality like should I order this Chad should I go to the doctor? Should I go to want to be finished by? Membership can get really overwhelming really quickly absolutely. So let's talk a little bit about that because You know you mentioned also in your article that some insurances do cover this like you mentioned earlier to. Your company has a policy in place that they help financially with this right yet. The Union me have our benefit package. We have a partnership of this company called.

The first round of the money needs to another round so it's still very tall oil. I'm definitely grateful that my company offered but it's definitely not kind of heart launched that and you go head first into this the treatment say all right.

Like isn't so much about the eggs so for me I just. I know that I want to have a family that involves children. And ideally I want to have kids that are genetically related to me and biologically related to me. And there's a lot of emotion that right. There's a lot of emotion in forcing yourself to think through the possibility that that might not happen. And there's a lot of fear in trying to prevent that from happening. And you just want to stave off that fear as much as you as much as you possibly can. And that's why it's popular whether or not it's it's serving. It's clinical purpose is up for debate but for a lot of people it's serving a psychological purpose but it's a really expensive antidote for some people and if that really expensive antidote appeals to you by all means go for it as as you're clear eyed about what it is you're paying for if you're buying the desire to sleep well at night because your eggs in the freezer the thing to keep in mind. Is that egg? Freezing is elective and conflated with preventative. Care in some ways. So you know you don't want to get the flu so you take a flu shot but you know you wanNA have babies so you freeze your eggs like those. Aren't the same thing here that y'all freezing. Your eggs is not like a flu. Shot to keep your future fertility healthy also. Getting those eggs on ice doesn't guarantee that they'll be viable for fertilization. Should you decide to use them down the road? So you've gotta look at the success rates even the estimates that are given by clinics those estimates. Aren't there specific success rates their general success rates in averages? They're not for that specific clinic. And you need to know that kind of thing before you decide to move forward because if you think all right I've gotta deal. This place is getting do around for five thousand dollars will. Are they GONNA know how to turn those eggs into embryos successfully? Are they going to be able to implant them in your body you know? What's the experience level of the clinic of the doctors They're all factors that. Go into this and no freezing is not an insurance policy. You also can't wear your for Tilleke. Odds solely based on the number of eggs banked in order to make a baby from those eggs you have to undergo IVF in order to get pregnant cynical also wanted to find out whether there were racial disparities in IVF success rates and we did learn that there are racial disparities in IBS success rates. In that there is a significant relationship between fibroids and success rates specifically for Black Women and that knowing your family history is really important. Fibroids are abnormal growths in the uterus. That are often hereditary. They're usually really painful and cause heavy bleeding and they disproportionately affect black women. Yes so studies. Show that black women respond great to the ovary stimulation egg freezing and fertilization process but their actual birth rates are lower likely because of fiber ads and other uterus shoes. And that's why folks with vibrates or a higher risk of developing them aren't ideal candidates for egg freezing. When Nicole turned her own family history as part of a reporting she found out that her mom and many of her aunt suffered from fibroids which put her at risk to doing. This series. Taught me more about my body than I had ever learned or that any women around me knew about their bodies you know. That was the buried lead in all of it right. It's like we don't know enough. We're still figuring out how to be leaders in taking on having that information instead of walking through the world either accepting or pretending like we know more than we do. Because that's what was going on with egg freezing at least in my mind. That's why I was having ideological conversations when I had never really taken a step back to be like well. How does my body work like? I just didn't know what Nicole does know. Is that now is not the time for her to freeze any eggs. But she hasn't written it off entirely either. Yeah so the answer to her question. Should I freeze? My eggs is maybe in the future right now. She's continuing to save up money and is really happy to have learned so much about her body her family and herself. Is there. Anything that you that you know now that you wish you had known at the start of this whole journey in Eggers thirty is like thirty s. All right like there's no reason to be freaking out ringing the alarm at thirty in the grand scheme of things like it's not a do or die moment so if you are feeling that way. I think it's a great time to do some sort of soul-searching about what you want and High WanNa get there but by no means is at the time for anxiety to set in and like to be going on this tinder dates.

"freezing." Discussed on Unladylike
"It's incredible how quickly egg freezing has gone. Mainstream because kristen it was only back in twenty twelve. Did it became available to anyone who wants it then. Two years later I remember when facebook and apple made like all of the headlines by announcing they were offering egg freezing as an employee and I totally cheered for it at the time. No Yeah I mean. Now it's like the woke prestige perk that a lot of a-list companies provide and it's meant to appeal precisely to young women like Nicole. I had been talking about egg freezing with friends. Probably for like a year or two before the series became a reality and it was more so like it was more so like having ideological debates with people because most of the the articles I was reading. Were about whether or not. You should do it. Not How to do it. So as I was having some of these conversations and arguments there were obvious gaps in our in our debates because neither of us knew what we were talking about like. We didn't know the INS and outs of egg freezing. We just knew what every other article told us like. We should be carrying about or we should feel about something. We don't fully know the consequences of it. Nicole and her friends aren't alone here. I mean before we started this episode. I had absolutely zero idea. How egg freezing works him. Granted I'm not in the market for frozen eggs but folks like Nicole might be. So what is it yes so? Let's quickly unscrambled all the mystery. What what egg. Freezing is the whole point is to retrieve as many mature eggs at one time as possible. Up to fifteen to twenty eggs and those eggs are made by the follicles. Which are part of the ovaries problem is? Follicles only produce one mature egg a month so egg freezing involves a three step process. I you basically like Dow's your ovaries and miracle grow or synthetic hormones to get them to make a whole bunch of eggs instead of just the one. This takes a couple of weeks. Yeah then once. The eggs are mature. You know they've got a really good huddle in their shoulders. It's time for Egg Retrieval. And this means that you're going to be sedated because the doctor is going to guide a needle through the vagina to the follicles and suction off those eggs. Like picking grapes last step but definitely not least. Those fresh eggs are essentially flash frozen and dropped into liquid nitrogen leg dipping dots. Then it's off to the Freezer Caroline. That's all what happens after you've decided to go forward with the process. Nicole wasn't even close to that point yet. So tell us what I even prompted you to start thinking about freezing your eggs so I had just broken up with my boyfriend at the time and I was twenty nine and it was the first time I realized that a relationship was not going to work out and instead of letting it kind of peter out or just letting itself implode I just ended the relationship and for me it was a really great moment of self awareness of realizing that. I am in control of my relationships and I'm in control of how I build the family that I'd like in my life but also that I am still learning how to own that agency and it just got me thinking about my bigger than life of family planning of wanting kids of wanting a life partner and how to be more intentional in taking my time to find the right life partner but also by myself some time because I needed it to figure out you know what that looks like. And how did she that so from what we read? It really seems lake. Post break-up egg freezing is fairly common. Did that prospect of F. Freezing preserving your fertility. Help you process that. Break up in any way or play into it. Not really to be honest right. After the break does a great distance relatable the two were related in the sense that I didn't want to Russia relationship but I also did not want to clutter my dating life with any priorities outside of wanting to enjoy dating and considering the possibilities of spending the rest of my life with this person or letting them go like my ex. So how did we get here? Caroline like why is egg freezing? Suddenly factoring into planning families and dates will likely mentioned earlier. Egg freezing used to be done only for medical reasons. Like if you were going through Chemo or radiation treatments that can damage the body's ability to produce viable eggs but once American Society for Reproductive. Medicine approved the procedure for anyone with ovaries in twenty twelve. The industry took off and in less than a decade since egg freezing essentially been rebranded as the new birth control beyond birth control like why just protect against unintended pregnancy when you could protect against unintended not pregnancy to now fertility companies are encouraging younger and younger folks to buy space in an Egg. Freezer and supposedly hit snooze on their biological clocks until they're good and ready to make a baby. The baby doesn't feel like now or never. Yeah don't stress. When you freeze your eggs all your fertility worries though as easy to do to say over easy I did. Oh you're better than that. That was an instagram ad from. Extend fertility featuring two cartoon eggs and Carolina. We're not better than those palms. No we are not so extend is one of a growing number of F. freezing startups that are flush with venture capital in fact the egg. Freezing industry is now valued in the low billions for comparison. Y'All that's actually about twice as much as the IVF industry which is why old to me and in theory egg. Freezing demand sounds great the more reproductive autonomy the banner right totally and it's become increasingly available to trans men who want to preserve their eggs before undergoing hormone replacement therapy but for all the positive press. There's still a lot we don't know for example. How many of your frozen viable and for long. And what are the chances of getting pregnant from one of those frozen eggs? We probably won't have a clear picture of success rates for awhile because there are so many startups in the fertility space that you know a good number of them have not reported their numbers yet. and some of them we may never know their numbers because they might not be around long enough for us to have a clear sense of the success rates of their laps and clinics. Yeah I saw. There was one article from I think just a year or two ago. That was talking about one of those Very fashionably decorated startups. And by the time I was reading the article a couple weeks ago it had already closed. So yeah it does feel a little like who got It feels a little scary to to be watching some of these startups in pop ups and traveling for Tillery vans and things like that. I'd literally sticking needles in your uterus. Just like something to think about those cartoon. Eggs did not mention needles in the caroline. Yeah maybe not so over after all before needles. Get anywhere near You. The very first thing you're gonNA do is undergo fertility assessment that primarily involves bloodwork to test hormone levels a trans vaginal ultrasound. And if you'RE NICOLE. A camera and a producer in the room while that's happening side all the way down to the bottom of the table. So you feel like you're almost falling off perfect. Just blacks niece. This is a little bit colder. Then pressuring the ultrasound which Nicole featured in episode called the Pelvic Tour essentially checks out the uterus ovaries and follicles. To get a better sense of how everything's working. The pelvic tour was so stressful. Because I'd never done anything like that. It was it was a lot as I was going in there. I was thinking like why did I sign up for this like I have no one to blame but myself And it was actually a breeze. Hi Doing Okay. All right good so you can see exactly what's going on up on the screen up there. That's your uterus wonderful perfect baby cave. I went to decide that you're going to use it for that purpose. GonNa novel over to your right ovary about eight. Little fluid filled facts and the left over. I see what six follicles over there on the left side. There's a great example of one. You can see right here screens that I'm putting my little green marker That is a focal. Looks fantastic with her follicles looking fantastic and her baby cave on point. Nicole was about to get some news. She definitely wasn't expecting there. It is caroline that's after the break stick around.

"It's hard to make a good decision when you don't have enough information to make an informed decision fertility clinics. Aren't telling people exactly what they're getting an exactly how the process works in advance is just like buying a house right like you go through this process. It's like Oh my God you hard. It is until you do it but that doesn't necessarily have to be the case with egg freezing free ready. I'm ready. Hey and welcome to unladylike where we find out what happens when women break the rules. I'm caroline I'm Kristen and y'all I don't mean to be Glib but egg freezing is so hot right now. Yeah it's very on trend for instance caroline. You Know I love my Bravo Reality Television universe. I spend far too much time in it and egg. Freezing has become almost like a new trope on shows like the real housewives of New York witch brought us this unforgettable moment. I wanted to give you guys or credit card to make sure that you keep my eggs on ice of you're beautiful like God. I want to see those little babies for Bob. Six seven Caroline That was disgraced socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her mother day will face timing with the doctor who froze Tinsley eggs. I'm just curious what you think about that. That was a lot of wailing considering that. They're looking at eggs not babies and unfertilized eggs that I mean truly unforgettable but egg freezing is a plotline unscripted TV to like the bold type and Mindy Project. You've got celebs from Amy Schumer to former bachelorettes making press for doing it Carolina it's everywhere. Oh God yeah yeah I said it Agri where okay and even though egg freezing on demand has been available for less than a decade. Y'All it seems like everybody with ovaries is thinking about it. In fact should I freeze? My eggs is the question reporter. Filmmaker Nicole L. S. set out to answer in an eight part video series. She may last year for the Washington Post because I was on deadline. It just forced me to take a step back and take a look at the drawing board and think with my journalists had on not with my emotional head-on about how to move forward so we wanted to talk to Nicole for this episode because she was asking herself that question of whether to freeze her eggs but she said out to answer it as a reporter in other words she had to gather the facts and interrogate her own feelings. Around family and fertility what she uncovered in the process really surprised her so today. We're tagging along with Nicole to better understand how the whole process works. And what's driving? It's growing popularity all to find out is egg freezing. All it's cracked up to be an. How many egg puns? Can you fit in a single podcast?.
"freezing." Discussed on WSJ Your Money Briefing
"Julia Carpenter joins us to discuss so Julia. You wrote a very personal essay in the Wall Street Journal about this. This is a recurring topic of conversation. Among you and your friends but you're twenty eight and some people might think it's too early to have this conversation. Twenty eight is not the agent which I saw myself getting pregnant and I don't even see myself getting pregnant in the next few years but I think the reason my friends and I have been talking about this. So much is because we realized that the cost for some of these procedures are so high and it requires us to start saving now to make them financially feasible for future. So what are the costs involved? So egg freezing itself is a one time cost. That could rent a couple thousand dollars or a couple of hundred dollars depending on the insurance and the benefit that you're provided but the storage for these eggs is then an additional cost on top of that so does not a one time cost. Definitely I think that thinking about the timeline becomes even more important because deciding when you're going to freeze your eggs requires you to think about when you'll have the money to do that first procedure but then deciding for how many years will keep your eggs frozen and what. The storage costs will be is another process. Altogether in the PESTO. I think people might have associated this with women who were very late in life or high powered women who could afford this. Why do you think that this landscape has changed? I think the first thing is that there's so many more companies in this space. I spoke with woman for the peace. Who said that? She remembers when egg. Freezing and fertility was a mere cottage industry. Those are her words and she says now it's total boom so people. My Age are constantly getting ads for this on instagram. Which happens to be a lot actually or we're seeing sales or we're talking with our friends who are doing this and it seems that especially as people are thinking about the timeline and the and the time that they want to start a family as it collides with the time that they want to Kind of kick it kick their career into high gear. It becomes all the more pressing and all the more important to discuss. And in addition to cost in figuring out when you WANNA have children there's also the need to weigh the viability of your eggs totally and I think the first thing that I learned in reporting this piece that shocked me was how few women actually unfreeze eggs. I think one of the stats. I quote in the piece as to mates that. Only ten percent of women who freeze their eggs actually end up using those frozen eggs. Muslims start their families and other ways. They decide that they don't want kids or a life doesn't go as planned but only ten percent of women are actually returning to unfreeze those eggs and start their families that way. So it's a huge sunk cost for a relatively little payoff and the cost of this is another monumental cost in a woman's life women. In their twenties and thirties I would imagine are still paying off student loans and they have other obligations as well. I think that that's something I talked about with my friends. All the time is worth thinking. Look in the grand scheme of life. Where do we want our money going to be one hundred house to do? We want to pay down our loans and free. Do we want to go on that dream vacation? And then when you're looking at price or or I should also say you know you're thinking or do i WanNa know down the line that I will one hundred percent be able to have a child with my eggs and you're looking at some of these costs. I I think one of the stats. I quote in the peace estimates that the average woman pays her fifteen thousand dollars for egg freezing. So that's way more than so. Many people would spend on so many other of goals in their life. So it's it's not a. It's not a trivial cost or something to put off those insurance cover. This still in many cases insurance or benefits are covering this. Now that's a relatively new phenomenon. Facebook and apple were some of the first companies to come out and very publicly. Say We will provide this far female employees and as the Peace News Corp The parent company of The Wall Street Journal also provides this as a benefit for employees. In my case it wouldn't entirely provide this for free. I would definitely be out some money out of pocket. But it's definitely a space in which we're seeing more and more assistance in the data shows that it seems that age thirty seven is a pivotal time in a woman's life with respect to deciding whether to freeze her eggs. We'll it's interesting. What I found out in looking at that study is it's not necessarily that women who are at thirty seven should freeze eggs. It's more that when you compared women who didn't freeze their eggs in this. One studies women who did freeze their eggs. When you look at thirty-seven dots. When women saw the highest likelihood of having a child with those fresno tax and then Julia is this process any different for a heterosexual woman versus foreign. Lgbtq woman. I think the thing that is different is while the actual egg freezing processes not different thinking about starting a family is different so something. I talk about a lot with my heterosexual friends and I talked with a lot of women for this piece as well is that they're freezing their eggs but maybe they're not going to unfreeze them because they're kind of holding out hope that they will meet a partner and have a family without needing those frozen eggs for me. Even if I froze my ads and don't end up needing those ads I will still be out a couple hundred dollars for donor sperm or I'll be out even more thousands of dollars if I decide to adopt or if I decide to foster and adopt. There's all of these different considerations for lgbtq women that still require money and heterosexual women are essentially not thinking about those same costs. It seems like with all the information all the services out there. The silhouette of unanswered questions surrounding this topic. Definitely I mean the number one thing I heard from other women when I would talk about this but them casually is that even with so much information and even with so many resources there is still this huge gulf between understanding what is right for a person and understanding. What is right for you so if you hear well. It's better to freeze your eggs when you're younger that's when your eggs or MOS viable. It's easier to get pregnant when you're younger. That's when your chances of getting pregnant and your chances of a successful pregnancy are the highest. That still doesn't exactly square with so many women's financial realities are their career rallies or realities. And it's this instance in which I can recommend this and the piece a little bit you can have all the information you need but there is still not a machine out there that you plug in and it says get pregnant at thirty two or freeze your eggs at thirty and I think that's what so many of us really want. Is We want kind of guided pinpoint for that in in in the end it's still such a personal journey and it's still such a specific individual question so it's really important for a person to know what questions to ask along the way being able to know what to ask is even more important than asking. So what are the most important questions that a woman should ask? I think the most important question is when do you want to start your family because for so many women? That's the question that decides all the other questions so for myself. I kind of decided. Alright I don't really even know if I want to have kids. I don't know how I WANNA have kids this is just one option in a multiplicity of options in that in that kind of gave me a little bit more wiggle room so women say. I don't want kids really until I'm I'm much older. Some of them say I'm definitely looking to get pregnant the next year and that's really defining question or right that's Wall Street Journal personal finance reporter Julia Carpenter with US Julia. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks so much for having me. And that's your money briefing. Im Jr whalen in New York for the Wall Street Journal..
