Niamh Madden of Sisterhood Is Connecting and Empowering Child-Free Women
"Today, I'm joined by Niamh Madden, who founded Sisterhood, a meet -up group bringing together children who are child -free, bringing together women who are child -free by choice. Niamh, you're very welcome. Thanks so much, Heather, for having me. Thanks. Sorry, that was some Freudian slip there, I think, was it? It's a great set -up for children who don't want children. Definitely a Freudian slip. You're very welcome. I'm delighted to have you on here today. Yeah, thanks so much. It's lovely to be here and looking forward to our conversation and chatting more about Sisterhood, yeah. Yeah, super. Well, now that we've established it's definitely for women and not children, maybe you could tell us a little bit more about, like, how did you come to set up Sisterhood? Yeah, so I suppose it was a few things, really. We were chatting earlier about, like, all the different factors that contribute towards a decision. First off, I realized that when I didn't want kids and myself, my partner, made that decision, a lot of my friends and kind of his friends were having kids. And I was just wondering, like, what's life going to look like? Because obviously when your friends are having kids, you know, they're busy, they have new priorities, they're there, they're like, you know, doing all the family stuff on the weekends. So my weekends kind of went from being very social and, you know, very active to me trying to figure out, okay, how can I not just fit around sort of my current friend's lifestyles, but also make new friends to go with that. So that was really like one of the moments where I said to myself, okay, I'd love to know if there's any other women out there who don't want kids and have made the decision and are comfortable with their decision and just want to kind of explore meeting other women who are in the same position. Yeah, I love that. And there's something particularly, you know, difficult but important about making friends as an adult. So I hear you saying like, actually, motivation behind the group wasn't even that kind of label of being like child free, but actually the desire, like you're saying, to have a fuller social calendar, like to meet other women and do things that maybe at one stage you would have done with your other friends who now have these other priorities. And I could resonate with that because I was saying to you, like, I lived abroad for six years, so I did have to make friends as an adult and I think if you've never had that experience of needing to do that, you don't kind of understand how difficult it is because people kind of have their lives sewn up and you're trying to find a window into their calendar or a window into their world to spend time with you. So groups like this, I think, are really important to give women, you know, an outlet to do that. Absolutely, and I think you've touched on a really good point there, which is like making friends, not just as an adult, but even in a new environment. So we had a lot of women join the group who moved to Ireland during the pandemic. So already they're quite isolated, they've moved here, they're in lockdown. And what they found is a lot of the people they were working with, like you said, they had their life sewn up, they had their family, they had their friends, you know, they probably just didn't have time to necessarily make new friends. So a lot of these women joined the group and then met other people who'd moved to Ireland during the pandemic and actually got to become friends. And, you know, I've kind of asked a few people in the group, like, so have you made any real friends out of the group? Because obviously we do group meetups. But then I wanted to know, did some of those group meetups translate into real friendships? And one woman who said to me, yeah, she absolutely has a really close friend and they actually met through the group. So that was really, I suppose, rewarding to hear, because the feeling of like loneliness or isolation in a new country, you know, at a certain stage in your life where maybe everyone has kids that they need to go home to in the evenings, they're not as available on weekends. So there is a lot there, I think, to unpack. And like you said, it wasn't even about the label of child free. And I even cringe when I hear the term because I'm like, I really don't want there to have to be a term. You know, it's just, I'm a woman who happens to not have chosen not to be a mother. So the fact that the label is there is to bring people together who know that they don't necessarily want kids. And if they want to talk about that, great. If they don't, equally, there's no need to disclose anything or any sort of indications how they came to that decision or anything like that. So it is, it really was set up more for a social group, a social interaction kind of group.

A highlight from Christ , the Fulfillment of the Law
"I want to invite you, if you have your copy of God's word, to please turn with me to the fifth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, Matthew chapter five. I want to ask if you are able to please stand for the reading of the word of God. This is Matthew five, verses 17 and 18, this is Jesus speaking. Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not in iota, not a dot will pass from the law until all is accomplished. You join me in prayer. Father God, Father as we turn to your word tonight, as we seek to worship you through it, as we seek to be blessed through your word dear God, Father we ask that you would give us the grace needed. Father we ask that you would give us the help and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our meeting tonight. Above all dear God, let us not focus on ourselves or worldly things but let us focus solely upon you. In the name of your beloved son we pray, amen. Thank you, you may be seated. Although we are not sure exactly when he was born, the most likely sometime towards the end of the first century, his teaching would have a tremendous impact in the early church and he would influence many. Although most Christians have never heard his name, he was at one point one of the most infamous men alive. And even though many of the early church fathers would write against him and oust him as a heretic, sadly his teaching still manifests itself to this day. Albeit through a much sneakier and more hidden means, I am referring to a man by the name of Marcion. Now who is Marcion? Marcion was a sort of a gnostic influence, a deceptic teacher in the second century who was excommunicated from the church in about AD 144, died sometime around 160 give or take. What is Marcion well known for? Well he is most well known for making a gross and inappropriate distinction between the Old and New Testaments. Now a fuller discussion of his theology would take up more time than I intend to give here tonight, but essentially Marcion taught that the Old and the New Testaments were so different, so distinct from one another that there in reality existed two gods. The creator God of the Jewish people and of the Old Testament and then the God who sent Jesus. Marcion believed that the God of the Old Testament was cruel, was harsh, was unloving, was full of violence, but that the God of the New Testament was good, he was loving and full of peace. Marcion would eventually reject the authority of the entire Old Testament and the vast majority of the New accepting only 10 of Paul's letters and an edited version of the Gospel of Luke. Now none of Marcion's own writings exist in our day, survive to this day, but we know about him because many of the early church fathers such as Justin Martyr, Tertullian wrote vehemently against him in opposition. And although Marcionism itself in its full extent is no longer seen as a threat to the Christian church, nevertheless in the minds of many people alive today there is this idea that the Old Testament God is mean and cruel while the New Testament Jesus is soft and tender and nice, when in reality God was no less loving in the Old Testament and no less wrathful in the New. It's the same God, one God. And so this is something we seriously need to contend with and we seriously need to address. In our generation sadly there has been a move to distance and to separate the Old Testament and its relevance from the church.

I'm not sure. You're probably Blanche. We've talked about this before, haven't we? I think we have. I'm the southern most of the four of us. That's true. Tracks. Mm -hmm. And the sluttiest. Yeah. I'm the oldest, so I'm probably Sophia. People call me the Brian man. I'm the stylish one. So kicking off our Halloween series is Friday the 13th that's coming up, so we are going to do conveniently Friday the 13th. The OG. Had to do it to him. Yeah. Yep. This was Sean's pick for Halloween, so I haven't seen this in a long, long time. Same disease. I'd never seen it. Directed. What? By somebody named Sean. Sean Cunningham. Yeah. It's been a while since Travis has been on the pod. I know. Travis hadn't been with us in a while. Honestly, not really with you now. It's debatable. It's a matter of... Medications kicked in. So I'm talking Friday the 13th, and we're drinking Oktoberfest Marzen -style beers. This is the Polliner Oktoberfest style, and I'm hazy, and you can probably tell me if they can refer to all of those as Oktoberfest. Is that a catch -all term for Marz? It's the easiest way to do it. Like a Marzen technically needs to be brewed in March, and there's others like there's a Fesbier, Meadowbier... The Helles? Hell, yeah, but it's like Oktoberfest, it's just a beer, it's just the easiest way to call it. Is it in fact pumpkin -flavored? No. Oh. Yeah. Pumpkin is just cinnamon. Yeah. Yeah. At least in the States. And all spies. Yes. To me, it's like, and here where we are, it's like basically if you can drink it at Oktoberfest it's an Oktoberfest. Just enjoy yourselves, you know. You're going to get drunk on something, just pick one. Yeah. So Marzen style, it's a multi, again, you correct me if I'm wrong here, a multi -logger, like you say, Marzen is brewed in March. I just learned that Marzen is German for March. I had never known that. So y 'all, I'm late to that party. They tend to be... What is Oktoberfest German for? Just put a K in there? Yeah. Oktoberfest. Okto. So is Marzen, or maybe you're about to say it. Go ahead. But basically, yeah, they're brewed in March and then lager through the summer. They're fuller -bodied. They tend to have a little bit of sweetness in lower hops. The ABV tends to be between five and six percent. Yeah. Did that answer your question? Yup. Oh. Brewed in March. Drank in October. So it sits. Just all summer? Mm -hmm. Neat. Yeah. And so basically, this is a seasonal transition to cooler weather. It has a little...compared to summer beers, like lighter beers, session beers, it's like a more oomph body, alcohol, it's a little maltier, a little heavier, kind of warms you up a little more on a cooler day, I think. What's the strength on this? 5 .5, I believe. 5 .2? 5 .2. Yeah, I think. Well... There's a K in summer. Yeah, it's between five and six, for sure. 11 .2 ounces? Mm -hmm. So this is easy to pair with foods. It goes well, obviously, anything... Pretzels. Pretzels. Schnitzels. Nachos. Yeah. Anything you could eat at Oktoberfest, drink this with it. Cotton candy. Pretty easy. This is... Jaeger.

A highlight from The Treasury's Broker Definition Could Crush US Crypto
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me and LW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Monday, August 28th, and today we are talking about the new broker definitions from the US Treasury and all of the scuttlebutt around them. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends, hope you had a great late summer weekend. Today we are getting into news that broke just before the beginning of the weekend but has continued to reverberate throughout. The US Treasury has finally released their definition of a broker as part of broader crypto tax reporting rules. The nearly 300 -page rule proposal was published on Friday to codify language in the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The rule would require centralized crypto exchanges, payment processors, and other entities that regularly redeem crypto issued by them to report customer transactions to the IRS in a similar way to stockbrokers. Now the issue is that the definition of broker is so broad that it captures some hosted wallet services, some DeFi applications, and potentially much more. In addition to the reporting requirements, the rulemaking introduces a new dedicated tax form, the 1099 -DA, which settles confusion around which form crypto brokers should file. Miners and validators are expressly excluded from the reporting requirements, but the rules seek to capture essentially all other web -based services that provide access to trading platforms within their own user interface. Now of course, this set of rules was controversial from the start. In late 2021, as the infrastructure bill was being negotiated, there was an industry outcry that the rulemaking instructions as drafted would be unworkable. These concerns were shared by many lawmakers, including a small group of pro -crypto -democrats. Still the loudest complaint came from Republican Patrick McHenry, who said the current language is completely unacceptable, it needs to be fixed. The major concern in 2021 was that the loose language would be used to put reporting requirements on miners, validators, and self -hosted wallet providers, who plainly did not have the personal information and transaction data required to comply. As the bill moved towards a vote, the Treasury attempted to ease nerves. One source told Bloomberg that the Treasury Department wasn't looking to go after businesses that don't have transaction data, however they noted that much of the lobbying was aimed at limiting the Treasury Department's authority to collect legitimate tax information. This was viewed as an indication that the rules were not intended to place an unworkable reporting burden on miners and validators. The Treasury has stuck to their word on this end and ensured that the rules do not apply to those groups within the crypto ecosystem. Alexis Goldstein, Financial Policy Director at the Open Markets Institute, and frequent anti -crypto witness at Congressional Testimonies, argued that DeFi protocols should not be given a carve -out from the new rules. She said at the time, Ultimately, an eleventh -hour effort to amend the language in the bill was snuffed out by an unrelated procedural quirk which forced an unamended vote. Crypto lobbyists recognized that the rules would need to be objected to once published. Since then, there have been multiple legislative efforts to repeal the rules before they were issued but none have progressed. The rulemaking is being justified as a measure to close the tax gap. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that these provisions would raise up to $28 billion in additional tax payments over the next decade. The Biden Administration and the IRS under them view unpaid taxes on digital asset trading as a major contributor to the tax gap which is the difference between taxes owed and taxes collected. Some estimates put this overall tax gap issue in the ballpark of $500 billion per year. The Treasury directly addressed this issue as the reasoning behind the rulemaking and stated that it was an effort to crack down on tax cheats while helping law -abiding taxpayers know how much they owe on the sale or exchange of digital assets. This isn't really the main point but obviously the crypto industry as a source of tax revenue looks very different to the way it looked in mid -2021 when the infrastructure bill was passed. And what's more, even if somehow this rulemaking brought in the entire $28 billion in additional revenue over the next 10 years, which most think is extremely overzealous, it would still barely make a dent in the $1 trillion price tag for the Infrastructure Act. Maybe because of that, the Treasury gave the impression that funding the Infrastructure Act was a secondary consideration. Now, speaking of Patrick McHenry, he said that he was Other than that, however, he was disappointed in how broad the rulemaking was. He stated that However, it fails on numerous other counts. Any additional rulemaking related to the other sections from the law must adhere to congressional intent. McHenry also directly called out the White House for yet another piece of bad faith policy, adding that Now on the flip side, Elizabeth Warren, leader of course of the anti -crypto army, didn't think the Treasury went far enough. She said in a statement Kristin Smith, the CEO of the Blockchain Association, noted that by overreaching, the Treasury has presented both an unworkable set of rules and failed to execute on policy which could lower the burden of calculating taxes for everyday crypto users. If done correctly, she said, these rules could help provide everyday crypto users with the necessary information to accurately comply with tax laws. However, it's important to remember that the crypto ecosystem is very different from that of traditional assets, so the rules must be tailored accordingly and not capture ecosystem participants that don't have a pathway to compliance. Another concern was the cost of implementation and the sheer difficulty of compliance, even for well -established centralized exchanges. Coinbase Vice President of Tax, Lawrence Latkin, said in a statement The practicality of the IRS's requirement to report, let alone enforce this incredible minutiae of taxpayer data, is questionable at best. Miles Fuller, head of government solutions at crypto tax software company Taxbit, was a little more credulous about the feasibility compliance for large firms, stating that Quote, There's obviously an immediate investment cost to brokers that will have to implement this and digest and figure out how to do it, but the longer -term outlook in my view is good for the industry because it'll help bring more mainstream adoption. Still, by far the most common discussion point on Twitter was that these rules were overly broad and capture far too much of DeFi infrastructure in their definition of a broker. Crypto commentator Spreak writes, So to recap the new proposed tax rules, Metamask is a broker and has to KYC and report all users unless it removes swaps. Uniswap is a broker and is required to update its UI to a new KYC version. Anything with a multisig is a broker and required to add KYC. For completeness, the proposed definition of a broker includes A person who, in the ordinary course of a trade or business, operate a non -custodial trading platform or website that stands ready to affect sales of digital assets for others by allowing persons to exchange digital assets directly with other persons for cash stored value cards or different digital assets, including by providing access to automatically executing contracts, protocols or other software that automatically affects such sales.
A highlight from Evangelism
"Thanks for joining us week two evangelism training. Let me pray my father in heaven We thank you that we can gather together that we can consider how to stir one another up toward love and good works and how we can share the glorious message of the gospel with others in our lives we Pray that you would help us to be a church that has a culture of evangelism where we're just freely and frequently talking about Christ and his work in our lives and his offer of salvation for Sinners we pray for the people in our lives that don't know Christ We pray that you would give us courage give us Clarity as we open our mouths and seek to share Christ with them and pray this all in Jesus name Amen, so you guys all got how'd you do on your assignment from last week? Anyone you had an assignment? Yep Phil's asking if he had an assignment So My encouragement for you is you know as a reminder this isn't just a class of like, you know information The purpose here is actually training equipping so that we would be growing in evangelism and sharing the gospel last week I Encourage you to just you know, take it as a simple step. It's not doesn't take a theology degree doesn't take Really much else besides time But just starting to pray for your own heart to grow in love for God and his word praying for unbelievers that you know Praying for opportunities to communicate the gospel and then in that in that prayer even just confessing any sinful fear apathy shame that you feel Confessing that to God that's what we do with sin. We don't just feel sorry about it. We confess it to God We ask for forgiveness and then we remember that we're forgiven for it all we're forgiven for all the times that we Mess up in evangelism all the opportunities that we don't take All the times we're afraid of what people think of us all the times that we don't care all of those times where we are forgiven by God in Christ and So that was part of your assignment then also just to memorize and meditate on 2nd Corinthians 5 20 and 21 that we are That we're called to communicate to others So let me show you our overall in our outline here last week. We talked about what is the gospel? What is evangelism? We talked about some of the barriers to sharing the gospel and just how to even get started. We heard from Andrew Lockwood Today and we're gonna talk about the role of prayer and the Holy Spirit in evangelism We're going to then talk about some practical matters of just like bridges to the gospel or or how do you? Transition a conversation to the gospel. How do you even bring up? You know, you're used to talking about the sports or the weather or you know The all the things you you might talk about that are easy and that don't require any social Transition and then how do you get to the gospel? And how do you I handle objections? We'll talk a little bit about that and then we're gonna hear from Keith Greenwood about his own testimony and experience in evangelism So I should you should have two pieces of paper if you don't I have some extras up here There should be one. I mean you could share the one the one of them is a handout that has An outline of our lesson for today and then on the back. Well, I'll reference this later It has some instructions about sharing your personal testimony. And then the other is a survey That you know, it's it's anonymous and it's voluntary if you don't feel like filling it out You don't have to but I'll get to that later in the class as well So just as a reminder, what is evangelism? you know, it's this comes from the Greek word a on galleon the gospel the good news the That's really just what it means. It's sharing the good news But you know I have a pure love fuller definition that it's the compassionate communication of the good news of Jesus Christ to lost people and the power of the Holy Spirit for the purpose of Bringing them to Christ as Savior and Lord We talked about how it's compassionate how it it's you know that it's not to be a cold Hard -hearted communication that we are speak with with love and compassion in our hearts for people that are lost They really are lost they may appear like they have their lives together. They have direction they have purpose They have hope but they don't if they feel that way. It's it's not gonna last when they come up against death They don't have a Savior that's defeated death. They need the gospel. There's no one who doesn't need the gospel It's in the power of the Holy Spirit and it's for the purpose of bringing them to Christ as Savior and Lord Although the results are not in our hands. We're going to talk about that today One quote I wanted to share as I was preparing for this it kind of actually ties in with last week We talked about you know, praying I I encourage you to just pray for your own heart to grow in love for God and his word I talked about how you know instead of just feeling guilty like I've got this one more thing I've got to add to the list of you know, go check the box and share the gospel, you know be a good Christian And so I read this quote from a gentleman. I didn't bring the book but it's called tell the truth It's a good book. It's a large book, but he gives a really solid doctrinal foundation for evangelism And he says if people do not have the desire for evangelism, there is no use trying to train them We might try instead giving them a strong dose of teaching on justification by faith Unmerited mercy softens cold hearts And that's something I've you know I've seen true in my life and I would just pray for for you as well for our church that as the gospel the justification by faith not by works not by Our sharing the gospel not by any good thing that we've done when that really sinks into our hearts that were right with God By just by trusting him Not by any works that we do our our hearts become Softened become they Alive to the truths of the gospel and then talking about the gospel becomes much easier when it means something to you when you're when Your own heart cares when you're when your affections are stirred up Then you're talking about something that really is good news to you, you know and conversely when we don't really appreciate the gospel and we don't really Care, you know about the fact that we're justified by faith when those truths are seemed distant and unimportant to us Then you know evangelism is going to seem like a drudgery like a slog It's not gonna there's not gonna be any joy out of our heart. So that's my prayer for us in all of this So I'm gonna talk initially about prayer in evangelism and I thought we could look at two prayers of the Apostle Paul prayed For himself. These are these are the Apostle Paul's prayer requests. There might be others I don't know. I didn't survey all of his letters But you know, we talked about, you know, we go around prayer groups and we ask for prayer requests for ourselves Well, this is what when Paul gets around to asking for prayer requests for himself This is what he says in Ephesians 6 18 through 20. This is coming at the end of his discussion about the Armor of God he just finished, you know describing how we're in a spiritual battle We need to stand firm take up the sword of the Spirit and then he says this Praying at all times in the Spirit with all prayer and supplication To that end keep alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints and also for me That words may be given to me and opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel For which I am an ambassador in chains that I may declare it boldly as I ought to speak now Remember, this is the Apostle Paul that's asking for this prayer request You know the one who wrote half the New Testament the one who saw the risen Christ You know on the road to Damascus and was his life was totally transformed. What is his prayer request? What is he asking for? Himself asking for the Ephesians to pray for him boldness. Why would he ask for boldness? Yeah, right all of the reasons the things that were susceptible to you know fear of man fear of rejection fear of sounding foolish losing relationship offending people You know it the Apostle Paul experienced those same fears I mean maybe in different flavors, but he was afraid to why he wouldn't ask for prayer for boldness if he didn't struggle with timidity with fearfulness with Temptation to to refrain from speaking when he should so it we should take heart that It's not something unique to you that you're not the only ones I'm not the only one all of us all believers have faced this temptation and partly this is because you know as he says here The mystery of the gospel remember in 1st Corinthians 1 he talks about how the gospel is foolishness to the world There's an element of mystery and foolishness and unexpectedness in the gospel that you don't have to work for it that it's all by God's grace through faith That's not what we would have expected and so there's a temptation to be afraid and so there's a we see here in Exhortation to pray asking for prayer requests we pray for evangelism and pray for boldness in evangelism There's a parallel passage in Colossians I'm going to flip over to that now or click over to that Colossians 4 verses 2 through 4 these are parallel letters I think they're both written from prison He says this in Colossians 4 2 through 4 continues steadfastly in prayer being watchful in it with Thanksgiving at the same time pray also for us That God may open to us a door for the word to declare the mystery of Christ on account of which I am in prison that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak So what's his prayer request here in this parallel passage? Opportunities Clarity yeah Operate is asking for both opportunities that God would open a door for the word And then he's also asking for clarity in verse 4 that I may make it clear Which is how I ought to speak you know I found if Ephesians 6 he's asking for courage here.

"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. They say it's a thin line between love and hate. But we're working every day to thicken that line, or at least make it a double or triple line. But now here's your line jumping host, Eric Metaxas. I have a very special guest today.

My goodness, he's also the international chancellor of Wagner University. He's received his master's and doctorate in ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He's written many books. He's been married for 40 years to his wife, Sue. They have four adult children, six grandchildren. I think that says it all. Che Ahn, welcome to the program. Well, thank you. What an honor to be on your show. Listen, it's my honor to have you. I've known you for many, many years. You haven't known of me, but I've known of your ministries. What was the one with fire in the title? I can't remember. It was Teen Mania, or what was it? It was something you did here in New York, like 12 or 13 years ago. Well, we did the Call New York. That's what it was. The Call New York. It was the Call New York. Yeah, 2001. That's, you know what? 2001? Yeah, after 9 -11. That is 18 years ago. Yeah, and it's interesting because initially when we came to mobilize the pastors, actually they were very, very rude. They said, we don't need the Call to come in. And then after 9 -11 hit, they said, we need to gather together and have a solemn assembly. We need to come together and repent of our sins. And before we knew it, over 100 ,000 people showed up in Flushing Meadow. The fact that that is 18 years ago completely blows my mind. Yeah, it's been a long time. Because I spoke briefly, I was on the stage, and I remember being amazed at the crowd. It was a huge crowd. Right. And I grew up in Flushing Meadow. I mean, I grew up a couple of miles from there, and we would, as a kid growing up in Queens, New York, I would hang out there. And so to see thousands and thousands of people, then that's when I met you. But for folks who know nothing about you, what is your story? How long have you been, by the way, in Pasadena? Well, I moved in 1984, but I grew up in Washington, D .C., in Montgomery County, Maryland. So this is out of D .C. My father was the first Korean Southern Baptist pastor in North America, so he immigrated in 1958. From Korea. From Korea, South Korea. There was no Korean Southern Baptist church in the United States. He was the first one, and so they wanted him at the nation's capital. There was a handful of Korean students who were studying at Georgetown, George Washington, Catholic University, to help rebuild Korea after the Korean War, which ended in 1953. Actually, it was a ceasefire that took place. And so they wanted the Korean government, wanted the top students to learn public policy, how to do government, and to rebuild Korea. And so there were around 200 students in Washington, D .C., but they wanted a Baptist pastor. There was a Presbyterian church, there was a Methodist, but not a Southern Baptist. And it was like my dad won the lotto. He applied and got the job because it was so hard to immigrate. I mean, it's hard now, but back in 1958 to immigrate to the United States, it was almost impossible because the U .S. government realized there was no Korean Southern Baptist church. So you were born here? No, here's the problem. We had a visa problem. So my sister, my mother, and I, we were separated from my dad for three years. And so finally, after three years, during my formative year or so, almost when I was five, then we got the visa to come to the United States. And so, to say the least, when I saw my dad, I couldn't recognize him because, you know, I was just two years old when he left. People have no idea what others go through. I mean, when you describe that and how many people want to come to America. But I mean, the idea that your father is a Southern Baptist preacher in America. Well, he passed away, but he was a pioneer. No, no, I mean, but in those days that he's from Korea. Right. And so you were raised in the faith, in the Christian faith. Well, I was, but I rejected Christianity very early on because of two things, you know. There was no kids in my Sunday school. It was just students, college students. And so there was no families. There was no other kids my age. And then I went to an elementary school, Forest Grove Elementary School. And my sister and I were the only two people of color in an all -white elementary school. And now, if you go to that school, it's very, very diverse. But back in those days, it wasn't until the fifth grade I remember someone of color coming in. And so there were no other Asians, no African -Americans, no Hispanic. And so we stood out. And so I got in fights all the time because people were calling me chink, even though I'm not Chinese. That's a drug term for Chinese and Jap, even though I wasn't Japanese. You know, by the way, I have a little joke. I say you could tell the difference between a Chinese, Japanese, and a Korean. If you see a rich -looking Asian, they're Chinese. A smart -looking Asian, they're Japanese. But if you see a handsome -looking Asian, he's Korean. Ha! Ha! Take that. Yeah, so anyway, but I got in fights all the time. And I wanted to be so accepted. Plus, my parents were working day and night just to survive in America. And so as a result of that, my craving for acceptance and to be popular led me into the whole hippie drug culture of the late 60s and early 70s. I joke I may have been the first Korean hippie in North America because I never met anyone. I stopped cutting my hair for three and a half years. And my dad is freaking out. He doesn't know what's going on. And by the time I'm 15, I'm doing everything under the sun. Heavy drug user, cocaine, heroin, LSD. And then by the time I'm 17, I'm pushing drugs to support my habit. And so I was totally out of control. But one thing my parents did was pray for me. And I really want to encourage people not to stop praying no matter how bad it looks. Because the Bible says in Acts 16 31, believe on the Lord Jesus and you and your family will be saved. And so my parents prayed me into the Kingdom. And so I'm here by the grace of God. I got radically saved at a Deep Purple concert. So that gives you a little clue where I was at. Wait a minute. You got saved at a Deep Purple concert? Yeah, in May 1973. They were just touring with Smoke on the Water, a new song that came out in 1972. And they were touring in 1973. And it was at the Baltimore Civic Center. I made a concert, 15 ,000 tickets sold out in two hours. They were the number one band in America at that time. And during the intermission I had an encounter with God where the Lord spoke to me for the first time. I'm not talking about audibly in the small still voice. Because I was having this for two weeks, this visitation from the Lord Jesus. Without anyone witnessing to me. That's why I'm saying the power of... Now when you say that because people are listening and I'm really one of them. Like you're thinking, what do you mean by that? I mean here you are, you know, you're a teenager, right? Right. You are big time into drugs and you're selling drugs. You go to a Deep Purple concert. Now you say that for two weeks up to that, God had been somehow communicating with you or visiting you. What do you mean specifically? Okay, so two weeks before I'm at my friend Sal's. We're at a party. Just guys bonging on marijuana and smoking and drinking beer. Nothing heavy. It wasn't like we were tripping on acid or anything. But I was just bored because I was just doing that every day. It was just so monotonous. You know, day in, day out, just getting high. So I went to another room and I was into Zen Buddhism at that time. Just experimenting with Eastern religion. So I went to the room just to go through my chant and after saying the stupid chant, I was saying it incessantly for almost a year. And finally I just said, you know what, this is the stupidest thing I've ever done. I said that to myself. I got nothing out of it, Eric. And you just said, duh. Yeah, right. No, but this is how he said that. So I said God, I said this audibly by the way, no one was in the room. I said, God, I don't even know if you exist, but if you do exist, if my parents, what they told me is true, that there's a heaven and a hell. Well, I don't want to go to hell if there is a hell, but I don't know. So reveal yourself to me. So I was expecting him to show me if he does exist in the days ahead. But as soon as I prayed that right there in the party, the presence of God came all over me and I started to weep because I felt so much love and peace about me. Alone in the room. Alone in my room. And I was sobbing and I knew, I knew it was Jesus. I just knew because I just prayed if what my parents told me as a Christian pastor, if Jesus is the way, if there is a heaven and a hell. And so I thought I was having some kind of emotional breakdown, but it lasted for three days. Every day that presence came on me and I would just start weeping. And I said, what is going on? No one witnessed to me. Are you kidding? Now hold on because we're going to go to a break. Jay on is my guest. It's Miracle Monday. I love these kind of stories. We'll be right back with the rest of the story. And there's plenty more. It's the air from Texas show.
A highlight from Ch Ahn (Encore Continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever, wise, beyond your years, and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms? Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking, Eric Mataxas. Continuing my Miracle Monday conversation with Chae Ahn, that's A -H -N. That's a Korean name, isn't it, Chae? Yeah, you're one of the first to really pronounce it correctly, by the way. What do people say? They call me Chae, they call me Ahn. You know, yeah, whatever, yeah, which is fine, whatever. Now, Chae, by the way, doesn't strike me as particularly Korean. Is that Korean? It is Korean, but my whole name is Chae Ho. Aha. But when I came to this country, they thought it was my middle name, and so it was just dropped, and so all my papers, my citizenship is just primarily Chae Ahn, and so. Chae Ho, does anybody call you Chae Ho? My mom did. She did? Yeah, especially when she was mad at me. That's the classic thing, right? All right, so we were talking about this moment in your life that God has supernaturally called you to go all the way across the country with your wife. You have three kids, then you get four kids, and you're telling me that even though you knew God spoke to you to do this miraculously, it was a struggle. So you're saying from 1982 to 1992, you were struggling. Well, we didn't move out until 84 because it just took time to make the transition. And by the way, it wasn't just me. I invited Luengo, his wife, and a few singles and others to come, and so we had around 15, 18 people that were part of the church planting team. And yeah, it was a struggle. 84, I remember after one year not seeing anything happen, I'll be on the floor just prostrated, weeping before God. And I would say, where's the God of revival? You said, come to LA for a great harvest. We're not seeing a harvest. But you see, I believe those 10 years, and I would joke the 80s were from Hades for the 10 worst years, but they were the best years because God was developing character. He was breaking me. You gotta realize I was 28 years old. I was so cocky, and I thought, because everything came easy before, ministry -wise. And just like Joseph, even though he got this incredible vision dream that his family's gonna honor him as a ruler, yet he had to go through the whole Potiphar situation, the prison experience. And so I went through my wilderness experience, but they were great years because I had the privilege to go to Fuller, and because I had nothing else to do. So four years at Fuller, getting my master's and my doctorate, another four years. And I had the privilege to meet Peter Wagner and get mentored by him. And so it was all part of the preparation. So I really believe when it comes to making of a leader, there's that preparation time before you come into convergence. And it's the character development time to be like Jesus. And so that's why Paul says, I exalted my tribulation, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance, perseverance character, and character hope. And hope doesn't disappoint because the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Well, you talk about that. I can relate to that because I had many years of character building and I always joke around, I say, don't you hate that? But it's true. I mean, I don't wanna talk about me right now, but just to say that I know that this happens and it was years of humbling, real humbling, brokenness, difficulty, struggle, never doubted God, but often was thinking, wow, this is not fun. This is not fun. Yeah, and it's just something that I think every believer has to go through. And of course, we never graduate. And so we're being constantly conformed into the image of his own. Hallelujah, that's the name of the game. Okay, so at what point did things begin to turn around for you? Well, really it began in 92 when I quit, I resigned from the church, not because I didn't love the church, but because unfortunately the movement was part of, the church planning movement got caught up in what I would call the discipleship shepherding movement. Oh, I think I know about that. Was that like Derek Prince? Well, I don't wanna mention names, but yeah, there are. Well, let's just give the initials, Derek Prince. Okay. Yes, but they were called the teachers and they were like these amazing teachers. They were great. And by the way, many of them did repent for the wrong teaching because they were talking about authority and we needed spiritual authority because we're all hippies, rebellious and all that. But they took it to an extreme. And so - It became almost cult -like. It almost did. Right. And so, yeah, just controlling. And so here I'm observing this in California as I'm going to Fuller and I'm seeing my whole movement get into this whole other movement. And so I wanted to leave. And so Sue, my wife gets the word, we're to resign and give the church back because they really planted the church. And so we did in 92. I didn't know the backlash I was going to get from our pastors, our leaders. They thought I was betraying them even though I wasn't taking the church. I was not splitting the church. I wasn't trying to, you know, move the church out of the movement. I just basically was going to itinerate as an evangelist. I've never heard that verb. I was going to itinerate. You were going to go out on your own, I think, is what you mean. Yeah, exactly. Do your own thing, man. Do my own thing and not very successfully. And so 93 was the worst year because economically, you know, I have four kids now in Southern California, a mortgage and no salary. And so we had to refinance our house just to survive. But then in 1994, something happened extraordinarily in Toronto. So Toronto outpouring of January 20th, 1994. And at the same time, a lot of people don't know this, but the Holy Spirit fell in Los Angeles with John Wimber. The same spirit of revival that was in Toronto manifested in the Anaheim Vineyard. And we got hit by the power of the Holy Spirit. I felt, Eric, I was born again again. I mean, people, I know there are many people listening. They have no idea what we're talking about. This is hard to explain. I had Randy Clark on this program a few weeks ago. Yeah, I saw it. And he was talking about this. And I didn't even know that he'd been affiliated with the Toronto Blessing as it's called. He was a starter. Why no, I didn't know that. And it's hard. A lot of people get really freaked out by this. They say, this cannot be God. I don't trust it. And a lot of people that I respect a lot, I disagree with them, but they would say that, I just don't believe the Holy Spirit would have people acting out in this way and that way. And they make a lot of sense. I just think ultimately they're missing something. So you, where were you physically? Were you still in the LA area? Sure, yeah, I was in LA and where I got touched was the annual Anaheim Vineyard Healing Conference they have every January. So this is Wimber. John Wimber, he was hosting it. And Francis McNutt was one of the speakers, just great, great speakers. And he begins the conference on a Wednesday night by making the announcement. This is around January 25th. He said, we just got word that one of our churches in Toronto, there's been an unusual visitation of the Holy Spirit. And so he said, the same thing happened to our people this past Sunday. We were sending out all these young people to New Zealand on a short term winter trip. And as we prayed for them, they fell down laughing and they could not stop for over an hour. He said, this is not normal people. This is not normal for our church. So we know something is up. And so what basically what he was saying was fasten your seatbelt because God's on the move. There's another visitation. And of course, John Wimber was the one who brought the third wave that was come Holy Spirit with him and he was one of my professors at Fuller because I took his course, Signs and Wonders in Church Growth. Amazing miracles were being done through the vineyard movement. And of course, Jesus is a healer, but they were being used powerfully in Southern California. And so here I get powerfully touched. I mean, I have never shook, even though I've been born again since 1973, but I got prayed over by Mahesh Shavu who's a dear friend now. And I shook violently for like 20 minutes. You see, this is the kind of thing that I think freaks out some people. And when I was at the Global Awakening here in New York, I saw some people, quote, unquote, manifesting in this way. One thing you can say for sure, it's not the person, it's something going on. So then the question, the logical question becomes, is this demonic or is this God? And that's the only question to try to figure out because anybody who says like, oh, it's made up, whatever, it is not made up, it's something spiritual. Now convinced I'm that it is God. So it could be demonic. But it could be demonic. And this is where you need wisdom. You need people that are really steeped in the scriptures and have walked with God and have discernment. We're gonna go to a break, but I'm just so glad we came to this spot. We're gonna continue the conversation as long as you can hang out. Che Ho An is with us. Che An is with us in the city. I'm so excited. This is a Miracle Monday. I'm just so thrilled to have you. We'll continue the conversation. Folks, you do not wanna go away.

Why Getting a Pet Is Choosing Painful Existence
"My philosophical thought on this on these matters is when you get a pet like a dog or a cat. You set yourself up for pain. And yet people do it. We have the human beings, at least those who choose to have a pet with whom they bond. Human beings choose a fuller life with inevitable pain. Over a less full life, with less pain. That is the Garden of Eden story, by the way, as I understand it. Adam and Eve chose a painful existence as autonomous humans, rather than a painless existence, and in the immortal one. But not having the full freedom of free will. That is the choice people make.
Eric Explains What His Last Name Means in Greek
"Number two. Hello, I've heard you talk about your father being from Greece, and I just wanted to ask you about what the name means in Greek. My dad has been very interested in learning Greek and has heard me talking about you how to curiosity he typed metaxas into Google Translate and it translated your name as silk. Is this accurate, if not, he would be curious to know what does it mean? By the way, I watched a lot of veggie tales growing up and it's interesting to know that you were the narrator on the ester episode, which I've watched many times. Thank you, sir and God bless all of you. Wow. Well, the name metaxas does not exactly mean silk. It would be more like silk or, you know, it's kind of like if your name is Cooper, last name is Cooper, a Cooper is the man who makes barrels. If your last name is Smith, you're the one that operates the smithy, you operate, you're the blacksmith in the village. If your last name is fuller, you would be the person who whitens the clothes in the old days they would have somebody. You have the last Mercedes, you're making more sadar. That's correct. Correct. So a lot of names actually have that kind of thing. So metaxas means the silk or really meaning the merchant of silk, the person who sells silk. So that is correct that metaxas means in English, it would be something like silk or silk merchant or something like that.
Fond remembrances for Jimmy Carter after entering hospice
"Former president Jimmy Carter remains in hospice care at his Georgia home while family and well wishers pay their respects to him. Prayers and memories of Jimmy Carter's legacy at Maranatha baptist church in plains, Georgia Sunday, where he was a longtime worshipper, his niece Kim fuller emotional as she offered this prayer. They had my father and we just thank you for giving us the opportunity to be in the lives of these people. And to have known them and to love. And at the Carter center in Atlanta dozens of well wishers like James culbertson. Not every day that time. You get to be so close to a place where a president is lives and did so much great work. So that's why we came down here just scares me. The Carter center says the 98 year old decided to spend his remaining time at home with family, receiving hospice care instead of additional medical intervention. I'm Julie Walker
Does Early Success Hamper a Full Life?
"We move on. So back to the peers. We talked about the yeah, no, no, I know, I know, but I just, I can't let that go of not wanting to live life, what are they going to do? You realize this, I have begged young people never to even go from high school to college. I remember saying when I lectured college kids go to college retreat institute, which is why I came out to LA. And I was only a few years older than them. I said, hey, listen. Either after college or in college or right after high school, you understand the odds are you have 70 more years, maybe 80 to live. Why are you in a rush to go to graduate school or to college or to get a job? Why are you in a rush? And by the way, if you get a job, every one of your peers would end up a fuller, better person. If they were a waiter or waitress. 100 percent. Well, in Nebraska. Yes.

A highlight from 45. The Great Resignation is Empowering Employees and Why That's Beneficial for Employers
"This is the corporate shadow. I'm Dr. Ryan Giffen, a professor and organizational development consultant, helping employees and bosses build stronger, meaningful, productive relationships. In this episode, you'll learn about some of the most common reasons employees resign from empowering both employees and employers. The great resignation is no longer only a buzzword, a rare phenomenon, or even a problem that's just limited to the United States. Instead, it's an issue impacting the world, including the European Union and the United Kingdom. For instance, in the UK, these workers are quitting their jobs at a rate not seen in over a decade, and the number of resignations in France reached a record peak in the third quarter of 2021. Even though the United States is still the leader of the great resignation, with 4 .5 million people quitting in November of 2021, nearly every employer worldwide struggles to retain their workers. That has made this problem the principal labor market concern, and most companies perceive it as inherently harmful. Indeed, the great resignation has exasperated turnover, causing a strain on business revenues and team dynamics. But many experts claim it was meant to happen and may even be a good thing. It might be challenging to understand how an alarming number of employee resignations could be positive from an employer's perspective, and that's why it's necessary to dive deeper into the issues and how it could be empowering for both the employee and employers. You see, the great resignation represents the trend of voluntary job resignations that started really in the early of 2021, and psychologists and business administration professor Anthony Klotz coined the term and warned employees could continue quitting for years to come. According to Klotz, people are still sorting out their lives and analyzing what it means to have a healthy work -life balance more than two years into the global pandemic. He also added that workers delayed resignations initially because they needed stability. However, many people are burnt out after struggling with increased stress in the 27 months, forcing them to reframe their values and identify what they consider genuinely meaningful in times of illness, uncertainty, and death. But although employers blame the COVID -19 crisis for the start of the great resignation, that likely only accelerated the problem. That also means that this isn't short -term turbulence that will fade once the world declares the end of the pandemic. Instead, it's a continuation of a trend of rising quit rates that began more than a decade ago. A Harvard Business Review article by Joseph Fuller and William Kerr explains five main factors that triggered the great resignation, but these are always at play. People quit due to retirement, relocation, reconsideration, reshuffling, and reluctance. Fuller and Kerr also add that employees who resigned in 2021 would do so in 2020 had there been no pandemic and financial uncertainty. However, Fuller and Kerr agree that people began reconsidering their work -life balance and care roles even more. The perspective shift is indisputable, motivating employees to prioritize their wellbeing, their mental health, and loved ones. After all, many were burnt out, underpaid, and unable to address their responsibilities at home. So, most resignations ended up occurring in a lower -wage industry, such as the food service, hospitality, and leisure sectors. That means that the pandemic brought many people to the edge with the number of work and family -related obligations forcing them to choose. Some had to pick between their health and stable employment, while others between caring for an ill family member or an underpaid job. Although these employees might continue working for the same employer if COVID -19 didn't impose a challenging choice, they would likely be unhappy and disengaged. That explains why some people aren't leaving the labor market, but moving among different jobs within the same sector. You see, job seekers can finally be more selective, as there are now a record 5 million more job openings than unemployed persons in the United States. That gives people the privilege to choose their jobs and quit underpaid positions. But it's impossible for me to give a final answer to what started the Great Resignation. It has likely been a combination of several factors, accelerating an existing issue and encouraging people to seek better paid jobs. And so, before moving on to why the Great Resignation might be favorable for both employers and employees, it's necessary to dive into the most common reasons employees resigned last year. So right after this quick little break, so I can get a sip of water because I am so excited to share this with you, I am going to explain to you the top reasons why employees quit their jobs in 2021. All right, so why did employees quit their jobs in 2021? Well, first off, let's talk about low salaries as an example. You know, most employees left their jobs because their salaries couldn't keep up with the increasing living costs and inflation rates. However, some were underpaid from the beginning. And so having to complete more responsibilities than their compensation encompassed possibly is a reason why they quit. Or what about a second one here, the no career advancement opportunities. Professional progress is just as significant as fair and competitive salaries. People want access to well -rounded learning and development opportunities, allowing them to reach their objectives and higher positions. Another reason, lack of respect at work. Employees needed understanding from their companies more than ever during the pandemic. However, many felt disrespected and had no support, forcing them to seek more empathetic employers elsewhere. Another reason, childcare issues. Women had to resign from their jobs in the past two years more than their male counterparts due to the traditional perception of women as caretakers. They often couldn't balance their work hours plus childcare, leaving them no choice but to choose their priorities. Lack of flexibility. This became increasingly significant with having this flexibility with home and work life balance. People often had to adjust to these unexpected changes in circumstances. However, not every employer allowed their staff to choose their work hours or work from home, thus resulting in more employees quitting. Another reason employees are quitting in high rates since 2021, poor benefits and perks. Many companies provide perks that don't match their employees' needs, expectations and life stages. But people had more available job opportunities in the past month, enabling them to find the one with more compatible and personalized benefits. Long working hours is another cause why employees might be quitting. The COVID -19 crisis caused working hours to spike by 40 % in some countries. And remote employees were putting in significantly longer hours than before the pandemic. Many started experiencing burnout or struggling with health issues, forcing them to demand a change and quit their jobs. Relocation. Even though this isn't strictly pandemic related, many people resigned last year due to having to relocate. Some returned back to their home countries due to the lockdowns and visa issues, while others decided to move abroad or into other feeder markets and cities where the cost of living was significantly or is significantly lower. And so knowing these are some of the reasons and why employees have quit at such alarming rates, how has the great resignation empowered both employees and employers? Well, number one, employees are regaining control of their lives, forcing the employer to become more empathetic. Workers have taken back their power in the past few months. Many had enough, having to juggle an increased number of responsibilities, struggling with burnout, and employers who had no understanding for them. These employees might keep their jobs in other places, but the most significant factor in their decision to resign was that they had more opportunities. People could finally have more freedom to choose their future employer and consider whether the job conditions meet their expectations. Employers also witness what happens when employees can choose and how that ability empowers them. Many business leaders were forced to think about what caused these resignations and the part they played in their workers' decision making. And as a result, employers had to see things from their employees' perspectives and become more empathetic. That empathy could also encourage many leaders to reevaluate their viewpoints and whether they treat others with understanding and compassion. Another way in how the great resignation is empowering employees and employers is that employees are becoming more confident while employers can become better leaders. People know they can be more selective about their future jobs and switch their current companies if they receive poor treatment or low salaries. That knowledge makes them more confident that they can find another job if they're unhappy or mistreated. Most employers are also aware of their employees' renewed confidence and ability to leave them more easily than before the pandemic. And so if they embrace that as a positive change, it could help the employer become better and more well -rounded leaders who can attract and retain top talent. Here's the third idea. Employees can pursue their passions and objectives. Employers can reinvent their way to workplace management. The decision to stay with a company should never depend solely on a contract or lack of other available opportunities. Instead, employees should find joy in their jobs and use them to explore their affinities and develop new skills. Otherwise, they could struggle with productivity and performance. That may provide a stimulus for employers to reinvent their approach to managing workplaces and establish more inclusive, equitable, and fair work environments. Another way in which the great resignation is empowering employees and employers is that both of these parties learn that success. People often assume that success in the corporate world is synonymous with burnout. If they don't work hard, they might not reach their goals or impress their superiors. That's unreasonable. You know, unreasonable workload and stress shouldn't be normalized nor the prerequisite for success. The great resignation might remind employers and employees that they can work smart, not hard, and yet still achieve their goals. Lastly, both parties, both the employee and the employer get to work with those who share their values and visions. As we've discussed, employees leave for an array of reasons, but that implies they weren't compatible with their employers. Yet, this relationship should be healthy and fulfilling for both parties. Even though turnover may affect the business negatively, it allows companies to find employees that share in the same values, visions, and objectives. The most significant part is to learn from every resignation and use these lessons to improve and do better in the future. So, in conclusion, to wrap this up, the great resignation may sound very scary, but employers can benefit from it if they shift their mindset. The goal is to perceive it as a learning opportunity instead of a business disaster. Employers can use the great resignation as an opportunity to understand why their employees love working with them and what made them leave in the first place. These insights can help them enhance their strategies and learn to be more empathetic and understanding business leaders who know how to attract and retain the best talents out there.

"We are delighted for our Friday Second Amendment guest to have with us none other than, well, he's the AK guy. Brandon Herrera, welcome back to America first. Pleasure to be here, brother. How are you doing today? Good. I'm just envious. You've got a one and a half million subscribers on YouTube at the your channel, the AK guy. Guys, it's 1.49 million. Can we just please get into one and a half million by the end of this segment seriously? Come on guys. Congratulations. Almost there almost there. Can I be really selfish? Nobody's listening apart from 3 million people. I want a piece of personal advice right now. So do you know who missed a fuller is, as of formally rifle dynamics? Yes, sir, I do. So I just shipped him. My garbage, it was just refinished, didn't like it. 5.568 K and he's going to work some magic on it. If it were your AK, what would you ask mister fuller to do for you? I would say definitely SBR that thing. Like a nice 12 inch barrel, kind of an AK one O 5 look. I think that'll look fantastic. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to do? That's not out of the question, but he said he can turn it for me into a 300 blackout. Now, what do you think of that? Oh, that would be interesting. Yeah, especially if you're going for the American caliber. That'll be a good one. Bringing it taking the AK two 5 5 6 just to bring it back to 30 calendars kind of funny. I know. I know I thought
Miami Dolphins WR Will Fuller to Miss Buffalo Bills Game With Personal Issue
"Breaking news out of miami gardens. The miami dolphins will be without wide receiver willful or for sunday's matchup versus the buffalo bills. The team is calling it. A personal issue and brian flora's even when as far to say there was a possibility for may not suit up the rest of the season. Obviously a lot of unknowns. But what were your thoughts. Jake when you first heard this friday afternoon. Josh first and foremost i mean the seed blake first weekend forever where the dolphins were gonna have a completely clean injury report willful or was the only one who wasn't listed as a full participant in practice on both thursday and friday. But just i do have to say. I think we're kind of over-reacting about this. A little bit will fuller was in the building wednesday. I believe he was actually in the building thursday as well. I'm concerned for some things are bigger than football. I don't necessarily know. I mean ryan floors declined to say preston. Williams who is fully active is going to be playing on sunday. So i think that's more displays being bryant floors as much as odd. This is something that's gonna completely ruin season. I hope that isn't the case. I hope everything is all right for him and you know. We can't really speculate on too much by terms of what's happening on the field. It's gotta be a little disappointing to not see him out
Do We Buy Things We Never Use?
"So angela. I have a habit. And i suspect many other people do as well of acquiring often buy purchase. What i've come to think of as aspirational objects which is to say. I will buy stuff that i think i want. Or maybe more accurately that. I would like to want but which in fact i'll never actually use so one tiny example at home. We probably have six hundred boxes of keen wa in our cupboard seen wa as far as i know we've never actually eaten keen wa at home high protein grain. It's not actually a green per se it's close to a grain. Oh is the lagoon. No it's neither to seed. I believe but that's beside the point also similarly. I have over my lifetime bought. Hundreds perhaps thousands of books that i've never read or at least not more than a few pages of i know many people who have bought closets and basi- full of exercise equipment and golf equipment and nutritional supplements in hair oil. So my question is are such acquisitions. Nothing but a waste of time and energy or is there an upside in such aspirational thinking. Even if the thought rarely translates into deed so aspirational consumerism. I mean that's a bit of national behavior. And especially the repeated part right. I can understand buying the first back of keen wa not using it and then you know whatever money down the drain but the second bag of king juan even the third now. That's that's that's interesting. And i should say just to draw the fuller picture. I do like to keep things tidy. I will go through our cupboards at home and know purge them. You'll marie condo. Yeah i'll purge so every. Let's say six months i'll throw away or donate eight boxes of keen wa her and literally eleven but then over the next few weeks you'll buy more okay so of course when you buy that next box keen wa. You don't think let me buy another box of keen wa that i can six months from donate. You're actually thinking at that moment that you're going to make the keen wa right. Oh yeah because for every box of keen wa that i've bought there have been approximately one trillion articles written about the benefits of and. I've read them all by the way it's quite good. Okay how do you know major kean. I've eaten it out but you know when you're cooking at home it's more of an investment when you're out and you say oh kean mutt. Sure all i have to do is say the word and it's going to be brought to me well here in. I think maybe is the solution to this. Least a clue. So what is it that keen wa and books and exercise equipment having common self-improvement and effort. So i think the difference between keen wall on the menu and keeping your covered is and by the ways even just have to boil it not that much effort. I know it's not a big investment but it's a big investment for the payoff for the while payoff which is small in your view.

"You can also write about a project or thought process and things like that you know and i've been fortunate to have a few designers on here who are pretty good writers and i don't know if they would really consider like continually doing the writing but like most recently. I had jeffrey henderson on footwear designer in new york and he owns an agency called them. He's been writing on medium probably for a few years. Now just such great writing. I would read an entire book of jeffrey's riding because it's about projects is about his thought process he weaves his own personal story into it coming from cleveland. And everything like it's so it's just so good and it's not writing that you see from black designers but it is extensively design writing. Yeah i mean that's like that's some important. I think. I mean like i said earlier like so much of great work comes from passion you know and so much of writing becomes better when it's grounded in intentions like those things overlap right. It's like if you have an idea that you just feel so jazzed up about getting that out through writing is what in my opinion like produces better writing so I mean and i mean to your credit with having won that award for me to think about writing as it extends from you know novel or poem to the writing in an ad or an product even think of even podcasting as an auditory verbal expression. Kind of writing too. So i don't think that's too far off as you know maybe a departure from like the people who've won the award previously but it's definitely kind of all connected you know. It's like that that key. In that bob ought to go back to what it's like. These kinds of expression are kind of all intertwined now at the end of the day. Say where do you see yourself in the next five years. Like what are you want your your legacy to be. Oh wow you know. Hopefully i think like to say like doing what i'm doing now but like on a bigger level can tune into work on projects that i'm passionate about. I think one of the things i've been able to do more recently through. Working co actually is begin to work on or work with a number of clients who are in the nonprofit space. We have the work in co fund. Which is this allotment of a million dollars worth of work essentially invested in nonprofits that advance the black community. So it's really the agency like working to sorta leverage this ability that agency has to build and design and develop and ship These digital products to enact positive social change so those are the projects that i've worked on more recently that feel most fulfilling and rewarding to me. Some i'm trying to think more about like how i can do more stuff like that. Not only through working co but you know extracurricular -ly as well so i think in five years. Hopefully i'll have or my day to day time devoted to projects that sort of fall in line with that and just to kind of wrap things up here.

"A lot more recently about submitting more like creative writing to periodic coals. Lit mags journals. Letting that's something. I've kind of gotten away from you. Know like when. I was an undergrad. I was riding bikes online magazine and like the fiction editor of lit maggot school. So a lot of the writing. That i do now is more solution oriented just like making a project or product as whatever needs to be as it can be but i wanna i wanna get more into our more back into. I should say dan just more creative writing We just had. We just had a design anthology called recognized that we started back in twenty nineteen Where basically like. I would give a theme and then people can write essays. Basically design essays or design focused essays around a particular theme like for example. This year's theme was reboots and people would write essays to that three thousand words less publish them. We pay them. We stopped doing it this year because we honestly there was a a woeful lack of interest among designers that the stick of the rubber rising at least my experience has been and i think as what i'm trying to get the pendulum swing back. The other way is thinking of writing so much so as a tool to solve a problem. You know like it's kinda hard to switch gears back into it. I'm just gonna to write yet more created with like right in response to this prompt. You know right to express an idea that i just had so yeah i feel that pain but yeah it's a a muscle that haven't used a while and one of us more of an auto magin a lot of other design. Writers might feel the same too. Yeah i mean we. We did it for three years. We had an honestly the pandemic also kind of killed it. I don't wanna make. It seem like it was totally just kind of lack of interest from people but you know once the pandemic sort of happened. People were really kind of more focused on you know surviving which is fair like. Please try to live. Don't worry about trying to get a thousand words into me. Right right about that and i would say even to this end you know probably because things are still. I don't know information is still changing every day around this. It's just not something. That folks are super interested in. But i initially wanted to do the anthology because back in twenty eighteen. I had won the the steven heller prize for cultural commentary. aig a and it's usually awarded to writers. And i received it as a podcast her but it got me to thinking about just the power of writing as a designer. Because it's something that. I've always kind of proselytizer designers for years. It's like i'm like it makes your proposals better it makes your case studies better etc but the more that i started doing this podcast and especially once i started really getting recognized for it. Which is what we call. The anthology recognized is that black designers writing ensures that we are in the design. history to Like it's very easy to go into a bookstore. Go on amazon or something and you can go to the design section and there's a lot of design books and very fewer by people of cutting let alone black people and it's not to say that the writing that lack designers should do should always be in a novel or in book form but it could be you know writing on medium. It could be something where people can sort of. See your thoughts long form and get a sense of how you think in like what your processes and things like that like. I want to see that because we're kind of the next generation. I feel of design writers out there and we need to cultivate that there needs to be a way to sort of let people know that. Hey you can the only writing. You doesn't have to be an email..

"She's kind of took me under her wing. Showed me so much about like product writing in that moment because we're building new sort of micro sites and web activation for the company at the time. But i think really just like taught me not only how to show up as a writer and collaborate with different kinds of designers. Just kind of how to like navigate a company of that size like a professional sort of setting in a way that was on a really authentic Appreciate that and yeah even moving on like throughout my career just like a number of great thoughtful managers and like team leaders. Even that i think overall did a great job of being themselves and away and like having their own creative process and inviting people to like become a part of that and sharing what they knew to work for. Getting work approve door producing good work. Different prompts or like riding techniques sort of generate ideas even and all of those experiences have just been helpful for me in some capacity throughout my career literally literally everybody literally everybody and again. I say blessed and highly favored literally. Everybody i've worked with has helped me in some way so this has been so great to have that experience. Is this where you saw your career going like when you first started out as a writer arrive when you first got into writing like this teacher kind of introduce you to the mechanics of it. Is this kind of where you thought your career would end up not at all you know. I'm a veered off course. I'm somewhere in the middle of the woods and just eaten berries. I guess. I don't know weird weird but no one i. I had that teacher in high school. Who sort of like broke down how to write a essay for me. I was really. I'm gonna go to new york and be a music journalist.

"It's like people might say like. Oh i don't have the cultural permission for me. Yeah exactly cut. That has been something. I've felt at moments throughout my career. But i also think to even other more senior black riders or other black professionals even the design industry. I've seen who i think in some instances very clearly have demonstrated a level of performance. And excellence that is like ridiculous. They're so good at what they do. Sort of being passed over for promotions or raises or even more junior people making more money than them. Sometimes i do think that there is like a sort of maybe not an under appreciation of black talent everywhere. But it's definitely an issue that i've felt in also like talk. I think very freely and openly frequently about with some of my friends who also work in the industry but even with that in mind. I think you know especially after last year. It feels almost like a a turning point or like a a reckoning moment. where like the powers that be are at least more aware of if not eager to sort of create a healthier culture lack dynamic for all kinds of black professionals. So that is something. I'm really excited for and glad to be living through anyway. Okay now say you know we've got someone that's listening to this and they wanna follow what you do or they want to become a writer in the design industry now. This might be a a lofty question. But i'm curious. What advice would you tell them like. Are there any sort of particular resources or anything. They should checkouts anything like that. Yeah i mean. I'd say i guess sort of related to some of the points. We chatted about early. Like there's so many different kinds of writing in like ways to be a writer you know in design and technology and make a living. You know it's like no people who just do naming i know people who are really interested in focus on a brand copywriting like they just wanna do voice intoned guidelines or just want to do commercials the or just want to work in product so many ways that writing becomes a part of the creative or design process so i think having as clear vision of what sort of subdivision of writing you're most interested in building a portfolio around that or making connections with people who do that kind of work seeing the kinds of projects that they work on and are excited by so you can just get a better sense of like what we're really jazz you up because i think that's really like the secret sauce is to like as often as possible. Just do the things that get you the most excited even if that changes from like month-to-month quarter quarter like year to year. Just follow is going to be cliche. Follow your passions. But i think that ultimately is what encourages anyone to show up more fully to a professional conversation. Just figuring out what that looks like for you. I think is the the best advice i could give. Yeah so there are some people that he said some people that just do naming and like these are designed writers or there's some people that just do voice and tone work as it relates to like style guides and things like that okay. I'm i'm curious for myself. Wanna know this. Like how do those work. I mean i feel like that's such a specific like almost. Feel like that's hyper specific to be a writer and only be able to focus on those sort of small things like voice in town or naming as opposed to you know like what you would be doing with micro copy and things of that nature. I think when you're like that specialize especially if you're freelancing you can command a little bit more compensation for the value that you would bring..

"From working in these agencies to working in house particularly once you work that we work and i would probably say well i guess working working co is kind of. Do you consider that more agency or more in house. I think i mean we are a product design and development agencies. I think of it as an agency. Although it's very different than at least milder agency experiences happen. Is there a big difference for you. Being a writer in agency environment versus in in house environment from my experience yes. The biggest has been in an agency setting being able men encouraged to touch a much wider variety of types of businesses types of projects. I feel like especially at this in my career. I just want like soak up as much like information and experience as possible. That's why my feel more interested in working at agency right now. But i've worked on projects you know in industries like genomics or healthcare or retail or the nonprofit space. There's just like there's such an array of like exciting opportunities when you're working at an agency versus when your in house. You're really dedicated to that. One brand set of products. That one mission you really like focus in on a very specific way especially as a writer just like very deeply understand. Appreciate the voice tone behind the brand the company that you're working with also mold it and shape in evolve it in a unique way too but i think the the biggest distinction that i've experienced has been choosing between like breath and depth.

"Yeah so that was really fun but that same year ahead a really awesome writing teacher and writing class so i just like all of a sudden was like really interested in like riding as this structural craft she liked broke down like like the formula almost of how to write a good essay. And i didn't know that like writing could be so structural and like formulate a way that i was already thinking about math and science engineering and physics. Sounds like oh like nominally interested in writing. Let's pivot like super hard. So coming out of high school i went to school in baltimore. Maryland at nbc. And i had like some personal life. Events happened that in addition to like sort of burgeoning interest in writing really made me curious about why people behave act the way they do why they think what they think. Saas studied psychology and sociology. a double major but minored in writing in philosophy. Salau was learning about behavior on moss. I was also like doing all these extracurriculars like i was like tutoring at the writing center on campus. We had a Mag called the barnaby as fiction editor of mas writing for this online magazine. That was like about like matt of fashion and like music is of like street. Wear culture plug always sort of complimenting earliest about like my academics the more like research oriented studies with like this sort of extracurricular like creative thing on the side like towards the end of undergrad. I was like okay. I want to be in or around advertising in some capacity of maybe strategist. May maybe a copywriter. Not quite sure yet but still really interested in like why people think what they can do what they do like in groups found this really interesting grad program at nyu in social in consumer psychology. When that's what brought me to new york. So it yet really researched centric. We did like psychology of branding cognitive behavioral research just for like scientific and through a lot of those classes. My teachers would tell me. It seems like you really are most excited for like the essays and those assignments versus the practice. Research cited a couple internships consulting and copywriting. Just sort of start dabbling. I think in trying to make it more professionally as like a writer so to speak. Seattle turned at like a digital first political strategy consultancy as a consultant one summer and then the following summer. Switch gears to like this. Full service creative digital agency as a copywriter and that was when like things started to kind of like pick up Working on campaigns digital campaigns and commercials doing a lot of scripts but it was just. I remember we did. We did an ad for like a quick service like food chain. Where like. I don't know for whatever reason got super inspired road almost like a rap song for their like summer. Promo the basically the lyrics were like how to sign up for this promo and get a whole bunch of free burritos but like it was just kind of quirky and like twenty and cool and like i had a really good time doing. And that's kinda let me know that like okay like this is what i want to be doing like writing with like a group of creative people and like trying to put like a visual sort of expression around it or with it so after that internship i was able to find a job on. We works brand team. I was the second copywriter. They hired but that was great experience because we work was just an already rapidly growing company with a whole bunch like different kinds of creatives. There were architectural designers. Interior designers product designers illustrators like everybody just making stuff to like make these spaces and make the spaces Engaging in fun cool to be in ran with that for a while but then like pretty big work shifts at the company.

"Would you describe this shape as more of a key. Or a bah bah and more often than not people would Named the angular shape a kiki and the rounded shape abbaba Because i think there is some inherent connection between you know processing things visually and processing things verbally that we kinda all just begin to understand an very similar way so i do think to bring it back to your earlier point that they're just two different kinds of expressions two different kinds of design and ended the day. What do you think people misunderstand when it comes to like what you do being a writer in design process. Is there other things that people. Just don't get. I think one of the things that i've kind of had some conversations around in the past just sort of i think like setting people straight feels like a little bit too intensive way to describe it but it is a lot more sometimes can be hopefully than although i did use this raise like making the word sound good. That's part of what we do as writers on design teams but to the spirit of thinking of writing as a kind of design. It really is an a more. Holistic way shaping a project or a piece of design the riding in a way that is bigger than just. Does this like sentence. Fit on a cpa button. Look good does the type laid out on this headline For your welcome email like look like too much copying like i think there's a lot of moments where or i've expires several moments where it's like the design feels like it's already kind of set in place and they just want a writer to come in and like line at it the copy but we can really bring. I think a lot more to a project than that by being brought on at an earlier phase. So yeah i think. That's one of the bigger misconceptions..

"Maybe there's like a bigger organizational issue. Almost where the product or brand even does not have a distinctive voice. There's no documented a set of brand guidelines for voice and tone and maybe using that as an opportunity to contribute as a writer and produce you know an artifact and object that is super useful and helpful and it can help sort of guardrails around design decisions for the future so it does vary from project to project but ultimately just goes back to trying to you. Know solve problems by using words. Whatever those problems are. Yeah i mean. I would imagine the stuff that you're writing. It's it's a lot of different stuff like it's it's copy in terms of. I mean i don't know that it would depend on. What the type of project. But i would say like like actual like paragraphs of copy or you may be doing micro copy like alerts or status or things like that that kind of how it generally breaks down with the type of writing that you do on a project. That's a pretty big portion of it. I think there are opportunities as well where we can of get in a little bit further upstream and like i mentioned be able to sort of define the voice tone for a brand or product and have that be a little bit more of a high level output. Bno a lot of the time. It is sort of executions. like that. where it's here's a moment where you know user might be frustrated. A pain point. Can we insert you know. Simple little micro copy a toast or notification this sort of like lift their spirits on like usher them in the right direction. And what is the expression of that verbally. That feels right for the brand. Men also doesn't take up too much time you know is in a lot of instances copy executions like that. There's a gig. That i worked at recently where i was doing. Some content strategy work and i was in a meeting forgets. I forget who it was. I wasn't at this gig very long. But i was. I was in a meeting. And i remember one of the designers. I dunno. they kind of just went off talking about how much they hated writing. It was because they had i think had started to create some copy and people were giving feedback on the copy as she just sorta burst into this sort of tantrum. Like i just. I just hate writing. Writing is not my thing. I hate writing. We really need to have someone else to do the writing so i don't have to think about it. I'm not a writer. I'm a designer. I'm here design. Why am i writing. And it was like whoa especially because i was the content strategist for that particular project that she was renting about. But like it's interesting. How this is a sentiment shared by a lot of designers. But i would imagine being a design writer or being a writer on a design team like that does sort of i guess help in terms of not giving the more visual designers or maybe the like more front end people you know stuff they have to worry about when it comes to like. Oh there's a sound rights. Yeah no totally i mean. Although i am a rider you know there is a part of me that like hates writing to you know it is yeah it is work it is a craft. You know it is something you have to try hard to get better at. But also you know i i a lot of the time. Hate trying to zayn too because like i think maybe share somewhat of a similar experience to this designer. You mentioned where it's like you're trying to express yourself or like get something out that like fulfills a purpose or solve the problem but you just don't necessarily have the tools are just doesn't feel right. Mike what. I'm trying to put frames together and like move copy around invicta and i'm just now learning the tool and like is this deep learning cover..

"He has like. I said i'm a senior writer at work. In co i think pretty largely that means you x. Writings how i would describe it otherwise but it kind of feels like it. It's more than that. So i'll say organizationally we sit as part of the design team but the role is office super cross functional so i'll work with you know designers strategists or even sometimes the new business team but generally. I just say like wet. My goal is the soup is way to put it that. Like i make the word sound good or as good as they can. So that's an a product for example. It's about making the user experience however we want it to be that could mean maybe it's simpler or more educational or more inspiring or engaging or whatever but ultimately just having sort of goal in mind or vision for how the product feels and sounds and what it's all about and trying to communicate that translate that and expressed that the writing and shaping the design process as a part of that as well. Now anyone that has. I think listen to this show for. I don't know maybe the last two or three years is definitely heard me really sort of beat the drum as it comes to why designers need to write more or they need to start getting into writing and it's interesting because of that end with this being designed podcast.

"Week micro in american pie bender quote so this one comes from american pie two One of the you know. I still i house party stiffler.

This movie has a couple of scenes like this but it's probably my top twenty scenes of all time. it's joe patchy in ray liotta in goodfellas. It's early in the film and Joe patchy tells a funny story about ephron with the cops and they charge interrogating him. And then a really. Otago's you're funny.

He's got the weirdest suit with the collar that covers the whole time. I don't know it's just all perfect. And i guess that was born out of improvisation.

"Right and now. I don't know how you reach so. Many people are watching things on netflix in an apple. Tv and there's no commercials so the question kind of is how do how do we as content providers reach our audiences and tiktok offers that but is t be a viable option. Like do you guys watch any network television shows. I'm curious now. I've been made to watch home economics just because everybody jimmy teachers on there. That's a toll for grace temporary east grade. Do you watch any network. Tv streaming now ten years ago this conversation would have been very different right do ten years ago. I cut the cord but ten years. Yeah i was early on. I really mad at dvr ones you should be doing. Tiktok do today and dampers and we have one randy third year olds where we get shirtless in dance on there. And i'd love to do one of those do promote a quiet place. I'd love to watch you guys call this allowed place. One you guys shirtless thank you. I'd love that but yeah so the landscape is changing and it's a little scary because everyone who is making the decisions or who is making the movies. My peers were all people who are not raised on any of this stuff. So you know. We're trying to adapt looking backwards and forwards at the same time. I think you know. I don't want to miss an opportunity right. Yeah like i should made a tiktok with you guys for the movie we should. We should have done. That would have driven huge sales. Oh maybe oh for sure can goes mobile. Definitely do it okay. Sure you have to be shirtless though. Not having to shred. Thank you for making that short-list tiktok it's not happening. We'll figure out if maybe life peter's what did you think about amazon buying mgm for eight point eight billion dollars. It's amazing. I think it's amazing. Because and what does. Mgm have their biggest thing bond. They have bond but also they have huge library i mean. Mgm has going back. All the musicals from thirties and forties and fifties marvel pixar like five billion dollars. The star wars with four. But then you gotta think about the tv too. I mean mgm has just the size of their library so much bigger than as like shark tank is an mgm. Show was so good. That's a huge piece of business shark. Just just that and they have. They have a lot of television. Mark burnett is genius. Obviously and so you know it just speaks to the value of content. I mean everyone looks at these things that are happening through their own rose colored glasses. I look at it. That content is so valuable that they're paying eight point five billion dollars to own that library right. So that's good in the and by the way i think a lot of the movies at. Mgm made this'll give him an opportunity to really be seen in a different way because amazon as you know what we have jack ryan on their their if they're behind something it's incredible how they market and reach their audience and because they're so data driven that kid like i don't know how they do it but i can tell you that jack ryan the first season came on Every single box that came to my house for two months had john. Kristen sees face on it. And it said jack ryan on amazon prime. Well now movie i move haven't been marketed. That way before right and then if you went on if you wanted to buy a. Tom clancy title. Not jack ryan towel any. Tom clancy title. Johnson face was on the cover of the book really. Yeah so like their marketing. Reach is unique in different. And i think it's great because more and more people will get to see things that maybe they wouldn't have known existed or didn't care to see her they just didn't get reached in the right way. I wanna ask you about John cena yeah. Got in trouble because yeah. We'll see speaking in mandarin mandarin. I feel so badly i feel. I feel so badly for him. I i mean he c-. I've never met him. He seems like the nicest guy in the world and all he won the most maker wish visits ever is or sina as he beat the rock. Yeah wow yeah. He seems like just like the greatest guy it to catch people up. He was doing an interview in mandarin promoting the fast and furious and he referred to taiwan as an independent country which goes against the communist. The chinese communist party and typically when people make mistakes like that it like craters the sales of whatever thing. They're promoting in china. Yes like it could be like a like a hundred million dollar gaffe. I mean so unthinkable. I had someone call me today. Who said the actors no not to do what he did. If the movie's opening in china guinot yes. We're all aware of that. Yes because it's such a. I don't want to minimize what he did or didn't do it. Sucha there was no malice in this. Do you know what i'm saying it was. I mean he was trying to do the interview right. Andrews an honest mistake in now that it wasn't like free taiwan furious. Yeah over there fast and furious. did you like. They'll start doing like a propaganda away. Really screw this guy like screw. This really no cost. It's cost people like one hundred million dollars before for like oh but So what would you recommend. Let's say chattan. I buy some grace of god are in fast and furious eleven. But if you want to be fast my my friend. Neil merits produces those movies. I appeal to. At least get you guys an audition. Sure i haven't driving tape. I could submit to really to kneel. I will get that to neil. I wanted me doing a burn out. And i have a pretty like pretty cool. Look oh to the grill. To kneel must've had no the first fast and furious is like a small movie relative to what they've become and wasn't like a gigantic blockbuster. It was but i mean in the build up to it like they didn't know it was going to be no one knew so does what is like neil now when he's like on this rocket ship basically you know i. I would say that. He'll spin on a rocket ship for much of his career. I mean forget. Forget fast and furious. I mean he's made so many successful films. Sonic and twenty one jump street and twenty two jump street and a triple x. I mean. Neil rarely gets it. Wrong right But fast and furious was the first really big one that he did on his own. And listen he. He loves that franchise more than you can imagine any you know. And you know he has. It's such a fun franchise to be a part of because it's just cool as shit like everything about it. It's really cool. Cars are cool and people are calling. Obviously we can get to paul if we want to get there but you know like he you know that's just like what a dream to have a movie there that they're gonna make ten eleven twelve fifteen who knows how many of these can make but it's it feels like it's endless. It will never stop. Yeah i agree. What do you hope it doesn't..

"But do you feel good that you guys like stay the course and didn't do one of those like streaming deals. That's a loaded question that really is because they're it's easy for me to say to you now. I'm glad we stayed the course but you think back to the last time i was on the show we didn't know when and if this thing was ending and if people would ever come out right. I mean for the vaccine. We didn't really know and there was a part of me that felt like god. I really want people to see this movie. I really do. And if if if the option is them. Not seeing it. Or seeing it on netflix. Or hbo max or a streaming service. I would rather them see it. There as opposed to not see it so Paramount made a very bold move about eleven weeks ago where they picked this date. Fast and furious was originally on this date. And they punted to Yeah i think they're month later in. It happened within a second paramount just pounce on the date and when that happened. Who makes that call. It's everyone at paramount and viacom. I mean it's it's a big time call because there there was no one at that point. I remember when they made the call and people would say to me what are they doing. You know the vaccine just came out or people are just getting the vaccine. How are people gonna go see movies ten or eleven weeks from now and at the time that created a whole different level of anxiety for me because of what know what if what is happening now wasn't happening what would we do. We would have lost the opportunity with this movie. Are they contacting people to cdc. I think they have people everywhere that i don't know if it's cdc but they are talking they're not just going to. I you know. I don't know i don't know if it if it gets. I think it's more on a national level as opposed to a local level. But it was a it was a ballsy ballsy call and if it works out i will be attorney grateful that they took the chance that yeah because it is a big chance to take and this movie specifically is must see in theater type of movie it is it definitely is i mean we. We built it that way and you know sound such an important part of the first one that this is this one. It's even more so yeah so cast kind of an old man question. I'm an old man. So i'm going to be the right. Got ask so. I was thinking about. It doesn't seem like there's like a ton of young great actors and actresses and maybe that's just like my like you always think when you were growing up. There was like a whatever's saturday night live. You grow up with you. Think was the best or something like that right. But i can only really think of like timothy shalah. I guess as like a like a young budding male lead who can is exciting to people. Do you think like is it. Tough to casto's parts right now because so much of that energy has gone into these like social media platforms. I don't know if it's hard because it's got into social media platforms. I think that stars are made differently. Now so like Joey king right jogging. So fantastic actress. she did a movie. I think it was on netflix. Called the kissing booth right and she's been working her whole life. She's young actress has been working on whole life but the kissing with came on and she became a huge star and and now she just wrapped a movie with brad pitt. so is she's in. She's doing dave leach. Movie with brad pitt Train train. whatever do you know anyone. It's just wrapped it. It's sony movie i think. And you know so. I think that producers are finding actors in different places right like it felt like in the old days they were either they would either see them on. Tv show i mean brad pitt did guest spots on all those the tracks with ricky shrout. Exactly you re. I was referencing. Nobody was like when those sitcoms. He did some guest spots on that now. It's a little bit different. They come from different places. I guess some do come from social media. I don't i don't like i. Those people make the leap. I think anyone can make the leap. I don't think that the yeah mark wahlberg did he was like an underwear model and rapper. He's a great actor. So yeah i mean anyone who's talented can make the leap. They just have to get seen right and they have to get the opportunity. Well what do you think of tiktok. Last time we talked your ears. Cameros telling you that you need to get more into the tip top out. How are you feeling about it. These days You know cameron has pushed me and I've a couple of those big tiktokers have reached out to me and one or two of them. I'm working with now to see. If there's something i can do with them. I mean i find tiktok absolutely hypnotize. Like i can start watching to tiktok in an hour later i will not like there is nothing in my life turns on my brain quicker than either user experiences so nice. How does that happen. It's like crack. It's your brain. It is funneling down. Just hit and like if i'm more just you know but clearly they're reaching a ton of people and for the first time in terms of marketing. A movie are trailer was on tiktok. John did a live tiktok really. That's the thing that's just a different place to reach a lot of people. Do you scare you at all that that that form of entertainment these days of taking over a little bit. Don't i i mean. I think there's plenty of room for people to be entertained because they're carrying around the screens in every where they go right right. But i think that there. Maybe i'm deluding myself. But i think that there are the movie going experience a unique one and for movies that you have to see in a theater. There's nothing that kind of compares to that. Yeah and being in the going back to the movies. I mean it's i was like on a it. Was you fork being in the movie theaters. Because you can't you know especially when you're looking at your tv your phone all year and then being back and you know your popcorn it's immersive and it's an impressive. Yeah so so. I think the tic tac tiktok is additive added. If the thing that. I that i wonder is it for most of my career. If you wanted to learn about movies you would or if you wanted to market your movie. You buy an ad on.

"It's like you know. So he's trailing world those feelings coming overtakes you it does. There's yeah there's one week rows like call my mom. when do i texas right. I think that's the wrong person. Actually my mom's my mom's you know the rules because she's very like honest she's like she's like Well she's more like i. I was like that was like i have this date set up a week from now and set it up on. My shy texan between. She's like no. I'd see the desperate she was right. She's i- she's like she's like texture like on thursdays idea on thursday. That were at work. Yeah so she was. She surprised me. Because i thought she'd be like no you. Should texture like all the time but she was like no. I'd see that very needy and like this guy's no conference good good. I was watching country strong last night. And gwyneth paltrow says it's too late and miester scherzer. She's giving her advice on her career and she's like hey like i always wear high heels. Get your dresses. Hemmed here You know always go at the best song now with what you wrote. But her last night advice is don't be afraid to fall in love. It's the only thing that matters in life it's heavy. Yeah something to think about. But that's a lot of pressure. Yeah but it's kind of it. I think he kind of takes the pressure off. Because then you're not worried so much about get there and you're not so worried about doing it right. You're like oh this is just kind of part of it. I make sense to me. It totally makes sense to me. The difference is is that you guys are able to because you learn a lot about these people before you go out on a date with them because it's all whatever they want put facing forward is all their hip wasn't like that for me. He just met someone in you and then all of that peeling back. The layers kind of happened over time. Right that's true too but people are. They're able to do with their because people know how to you know put their best foot forward on social media and then some people they can't help but be themselves and they start posting crazy stuff and they've got like fifty story updates in your like for the day and you're like okay this person's a little intense but some people you look at their thinking. Oh this person's like the ideal human and then you get so many like okay. There's more to this right. It seems like a lot it does. It seems like a lot. Well your boys are out there in the world right. Yeah yeah the both of my cameron and paxton are out there. They're definitely and you're like good looking charismatic. That's yeah my wife. And i would say they're good boys. You know those things and they seem to be having a great time and having no issues with the things that we're talking about but like just yesterday i called paxton and i said the movies ninety three percent fresh. I want to put that on my story because you can't put that under story so why not because it's dushi as hell. That's not what you put on your story. I mean you don't please don't do that. Embarrassment paxton's got posted. And then he reposed his right but then but then. He's not going to do that because he doesn't want to draw attention he he's he's being demure about it so now. I'm just talking about on the pot. You need to post. That can make you guys. We're seeing tomorrow. You got tickets for it yet. Through our agent. Where are you seeing it Playa vista cinemark is that is that a human a advanced screening. Is there anyway said advance. Got it through like our agency awesome. Yeah text me after not not doing awesome. I i gotta disagree with pack on this. I think you should post listen. We i wish you were here. But he had his own logic for it. And what. I the kids. Tell me that i can't do a lot of things and so i just ended up not doing anything my dad you know. He sold hair. Care did a commercial for one of the hair care products. It was called to be. And after i watched the commercial i started crying. I said dad. You cannot put this on tv it would. of course he put it out. Yeah he was like look. We already made it no. It's too late ship sail. No he liked it too. He was like. I think it's cool. And then you know he knew more about it than i did right speaking to my i always felt like he was like like always wanted me to to to get laid quite a bit. You know not like it. Was i think so but also sometimes i think maybe i just projected that on him but like how did you handle sex in general. I guess with your boys well. Listen it's i. I will start out by saying i think it's different with boys if you're the parent of boys versus girls right right. It's different alley. I always tried to present that. There are two people consenting to something that you want everyone to feel good about what's happening in and You know no hard feelings right. That's that's not the way you want to go about it. So it's always been in our house about respecting. You know the women that they're spending time with and I've always been pretty open with the boys. I mean when they were much younger I had a drawer. This is horrible but here we go. Sorry paxton i had a drawer in my bathroom. The there was just always condoms. And you know. It's like and i didn't ask. I said that's there so you never have to worry about where you're going to get it. It's always going to be stocked and so and i didn't count. How many were in there. I wanna got low. I would just load it back up. And what age when they got in high school. Yeah definitely definitely not early school towards later. My dad made that. When i was in fifth grade and i was like pressure the other way and say like you're depriving them. The embarrassment of having to an arco right. But i thought about that but they have amazon too so yeah amazon. But the other part. That's interesting about both boys is. they are monogamous. like they like to be in relation. Yeah for the most part they do look cameron's right now. it's nice. yes speakerphone. So but like they're they're on the sites that you're on. I think that's important of looking for dates. And they're out there you know it's a great city for that right. I mean it's fun. It can be very fun especially now coming out of covert it's like everyone's going to be Going to see a quiet place to in theaters this weekend. Furniture dates on dates. That it's the perfect date movie. Oh for sure is Is a quiet place one on streaming service in case. Someone hasn't seen it got. I should know that. I'm sure it is. I think you just have to google it and it. We'll tell you where it feels like. It's been every westfield. Max i don't know probably hbo. Max it's paramount move. But i don't. I don't know i don't know where it is but it's l there i've seen on hulu that's right. Yes i think you're right. I think it's on hulu. Do you feel better. I guess we'll more like a week or two..

"It's not too sweet. Which is what. I like about you and my brother said my brother was with me last weekend. And he was He was drinking prude smashing. He's like the thing he loves about them. He feels like he can't taste chemicals. I tasted one. Yes it's real fruit clean. I like that was very nice. Thank you what were you asking. Me is their routine in place to help you know like well. Soft boiled eggs and toast usually on a friday night when the movie opens. I will not commit to doing anything yet. But i will have someone who will drive me to the movie theaters. And i'll go with mrs fuller and paxton and cameron and we'll go and we'll walk around. Thank you and you know. We'll walk around. And i'll get that experience the visceral response that you get if a movie's working read. If i feel that then i'll just keep going. It's like a drug so we'll go wild. I'll go oh and this is like i'll say to alex and i'll say let's this theater. 'cause you start to see the times win the movie stars so say will this scenes coming up in that theatre. Let's go there and see if that scare works or or this in this theater. The movie just started. Let's see how that opening sequence works and you kind of just go from theater to theater. It's it's super fun. Superfund do you have to buy a ticket or you just have a badge. Let positive that's a funny thing. Because i don't. I'm happy to buy a ticket and heavy do that but often paramount will call and say these theaters in this part of town are very used to people who work on the movies going opening night so paramount will call and say You might be coming by and i. I've been to the movies twice so far it was is pack last night really. Yeah a'ja it was was the date by the way you might enjoy enjoying the single life. It's it's nice good. Can i ask one more question. Yes 'cause i'm curious about this. How do you meet a woman to date primarily dating apps these days that that did not exist. It was just it was white. Knuckling it in a bar to go up and talk to a girl and hoping she didn't throw a drink. Yeah yeah i i kinda i. I tried to go for that approach. More as much as i can in life. But i mean especially during the you know. I guess we're kind of in the post covid era. It's a lot of a you know. I'm i'm sort of like taking it easy a little bit. I haven't really been going to bars and stuff So but a lot of the best ones are typically when you sort of like have met in the past and then he reconnect those seem to be the the most fruitful. I guess but it seems to me and we don't have to go off on this. We can talk about whatever you want. But it does seem. I'm i'm seeing this some of my friends. Arcane divorced or what or their status changing and social media become such an important thing like when you reveal the relationship on instagram or things or what what you comment and if there's a heart or i mean these nuances that are totally lost. You know i. I don't know any of this. You pick it up. Quick that i know but it does feel like. It's super complicated. The what's big for me is looking at their story. You know they see when you look at it. Was that true. I didn't even know that. Yeah you can see. Who's looking at your if you look at it right away like in the first minute you're sending a message like hey i'm paying each. Yeah who's writing that book like on what this all this means but sometimes when i try to do it by a book i'm dead. I'm dead in the water trying to game the system and the system the only way through. It is like instinct. I think subtly understand you feel switch go near like oh now is the time to say something because if you try to play it by like a formula it comes across. I think they can feel it. Everyone can feel both sides. I think the key is is to have a lot going on. You're if you're a busy guy if you're doing a lot of stuff naturally you'll have that sort of energy about not desperately needy. You're kind of like this kind of like. Yeah i've got lots of going. But i'd like to see i think that's that's key mike and swingers where he keeps getting trying to get advice from vince. Vaughn and sue. I forgot that actor's name and then by the end of it when he meets heather graham he's like you know what guys like got it right right. Yeah i hope. I never find out is it was at a first date. No this is like a number five. Yeah okay well. What what's it like for you. When one of your friends is like in their late forties early fifties or something and they get out they get out of a long relationship and other back. What's that like to see. Well there's parts of it. That sound super interesting right and then there's other parts of it that i'm just like i'm exhausted even hearing about this i it's just you know. Most of my friends have kids. So there's always like wind. Do you tell the kids. What do you tell the kids and windows. She meet the kids and there's that and win. Does she meet my ex. Wife and in those are not new problems. But wow it seems like that's just a lot to tackle. And then at the same time figuring out the social media thing which i didn't grow up within my friends didn't grow up within their all probably screwing it up and doing a wrong turn into teenagers again. Absolutely do any fall in love so quickly and it's like look from the outside looking in it's like don't you see what's happening right right but i guess you don't. That makes me happy. Though that it's eternal because i think in our heads are always like all grow out of this as long as you're in that space it's going to dredge up that stuff. I think we're all looking for love.
