"We buy the original cd. You release those solo. Cds will be available. Probably october late mid october. Pretty much anywhere. The distributor gives them. It's all these music. Like tower records online and barnes and noble so eventually october. You'll be able to see him there. The world war two museum in new orleans. They will have it in their online store. They're going to do a test run and see how people like it i. I'm hoping people like it. So don't get picked up there for even more and more people can see it. Because that's i feel like a historians in people who love world war two at. That's the place you wanted to be. Because that's where the most eyeballs are going to see it and and listen to it and enjoy it and hear about these guys. So hopefully when the the hurricane steph wraps up and people are sick to go back to their lives down there new orleans We'll have it for sale down there and their online store in new orleans to. I wanna get one of the cds from my mom. She really enjoys reading and learning more about world war two because she was a little girl when this happened and her two older brothers served in the war. Anything about world war two. She's just really soaks up. Oh she will love it. So the the liner notes i'll tell you how the liner notes how the formation of that came about thinking about how to do it and what i wanted to do and i started thinking about the oral history track on the album. My grandpa created. It's about a half hour long and it's essentially a chronological story. His story a chronological story. What i did was for the lighter knows. I wanted to turn that into a small book on each page of the latter notes. There's a quote that helps tell the story from my grandpa so there will be about something it helps tell that story of a seven forty six the my grandpa and then below that there's either a historian or a military musician as there's quite a few military musicians historians on on here to that kind of expand in the broader sense. What my grandpa's talking about and there's also some world war two black and white artwork. That goes along with each photo. He really get this story of the ban on one page on the page below that you get the product context of the whole war on the bottom of the page. There's people on there who were john. Lucas He wrote the book is the general go-to guy for william diets is a guy. My grandpa played taps four but he's a world war two pilot hero plates apps for southern california. He's written something on in my grandpa all sorts of different historians who comment. I was surprised. At how many people that i contacted. I was like. Oh that guy's never going to get back to me. But i contact them. Hager's might project. Here's what i'm looking for. Something you'd be interested in doing and not one person told me not. There were overly excited and wrote a lot of really good stuff on there and distortions in people who grew up in that era will love it. i guarantee it. I don't doubt it. I i love history and i enjoy seeing the pictures that you post on twitter and it is. It's just really cool. To be able to to see history. And to know with the fact that i know you know why you're doing that it special for me but i think for anyone who is interested in world war two history. It's especially moving. Thank you. I appreciate that. Where can listeners. Find you on the internet so on the internet you can find if you're on twitter. You can find all of those world war two daily things that i post. Were just talking about on the handle at seven forty six f. e. a. f. band or there's also at jason underscore our underscore. Burt be your t- That's kind of a little bit of both so on my personal one post things about what's going on with the album more of like business side of things i'll posts mystery stuff on there to the band account you'll find all the world war two's death in stuff on there. I make posts about different spotify playlists that. Pick up the songs from the albums you can see. All the new songs are all playlist. The world war two vets are hopping on and twenty twenty one on instagram. You can find the band at seven. Forty six underscore a end and on facebook. It's pretty much the same thing. Seven forty six at uaf ban and do you have a website. Do the website is pretty much the same thing. It's seven forty six seven four six t h seven forty six faa dot com and on the band website. You can buy the full version of the cd minus so what comes with the cd minus the liner notes. So if you go to the band website you just like digital downloads It'll send you the entirety of the album. As well as the digitized world. War two video of the band out in the pacific. Which is i think. It's about nine minutes worth film. It's it's pretty good johnson. You can see kind of them. Practicing their instruments and playing around with the horsing around with each other and then had a pet monkeys at one point. You can see my grandpa's monkey cheech. It's pretty entertaining. A lot of people love the world war. Two of and just puts a face with these guys. You see them enjoying each other's company just kinda you think we're buddies would act while they're out there and their downtime. We're almost at the end of our interview. What haven't we talked about that. You went listeners. To know about your grandfather about the band about his band members or your your project just anything. What would you like for them to know. I think the main the main takeaway would be you know. This is something. I'm doing for these guys to try and get them out there. Given that professional experience so that people know what they did during the war there around fighting they were not doing the fighting. Although in the video you can see my grandpa playing around with. His trump is time. These guys who lived for entertaining the troops in giving them that peace of mind that you know one day you're going to go home and give them that little piece of home and so it's really. I'm just trying to pass on their story. The thing about the project. that's also we have mentioned yet is a i have a contract. I partnered with the uso. This band played shows in the pacific. The uso one of the first shows. I mentioned was on the front line with the uso group from the start. I wanted to have some kind of connection with the uso. Raise money for them. So i have a contract with the uso and a portion of every one of the sales goes to the uso to kind of maintain. Today the legacy of what these guys were doing. Trying to give people soldiers and airmen and marines a home while they're not at home while they're overseas keeping us safe from harm and so that's what the uso does today. My whole goal is help them keep doing that. And kind of keep disbands legacy going with that Donation of part of their album. All the sales. I think that that's pretty much. The gist of this project is honoring these guys in a way You would wanna honor world. War two veterans. That's fabulous one last question. What what do your students say about this. What kind of support and reactions do they have When they hear about it but they usually have this astonished. Look on their face like today. I told him that. I was going to be recording a podcast. Oh when does it come out come out. They get all excited about that kind of stuff and they hear the grammy talk. And i think that's really exciting. It really brings history to life when you can do stuff like this and bring it in the classroom but they get really excited about that and it makes learning more fun. It makes it easier for me to teach too because they're so excited about different things and they'll ask you this matt. I can remember the first time posted. A podcast. right. Told them that i was going to be on Cast if i was if i was famous. What's gonna be chuckled. Pretty entertaining for them. They love to hear about the accolades in and just the being able to go on different media things kind of think that's really cool and it's it's pretty fun to tell them about really kind of interjected into our history. Lessons actually have an assignment that i could give them every semester. Seventh graders every year. So i get a new batches. Students have an extra credit assignment with the album. So if they stream the album and they write an album review they can get up to twenty points extra credits so i think they like that aspect of it too. Yes extra always good. Yeah can't go wrong with extra credit. Jason as we wrap up our interview which you give.

"Instruction in the banned picks up again so it's pretty neat. Cute did some work with the recording industry. The firm that operates the grammys. Tell us about that. The sound engineers. That i worked with the original one. The guy who did some of the a lotta transfer work Remove them from the records that they're on and digitalize them these down in southern california and he works for less and mastering and he's he's won a grammy himself. I think he has his. Latin grammys worked but a lot of big name people. Unlearn massacring is worked with big name musicians and they've done big time movies and done the sound. Editing for movies have won oscars have been nominated for different things. So there's him and then there's a sound engineer new york who had linked up with doing other podcasts. A jazz podcast. And he kinda fine tuned a lot of the after effects so all trying to get rid of the noise and get the sound of the instruments to be louder than the the vinyl pops in his voice still sounds very vintage but he did amazing job. Just when you hear the records original recordings on the records versus what he turned it into this. It sounds amazing when he did so. I've worked with guys who have won grammys and been nominated for grammys for their sound. Engineering skills mentioned earlier. The started off kind of his way to honor. These guys and there is little goal was to just get an album out and get it on the shelf of the the national world war museum at some point but somewhere along the way it all kind of evolved as i started to talk to different susan's start to talk to different jazz. Podcast go well. This is something that's really really kind of special. You don't hear this kind of thing. This would be something. We could see winning a best historical album grammy and so the more i heard this well. If these saying it must be true. it is and so i started looking into best historical grammy. What goes into that and all of a sudden this project on this trajectory of how great would be to give these guys this Professional music experience but not only that be able to earn an award that is reserved for those at the top of their their musicianship in win a grammy for world. War two essentially. And so. that's it eventually just tweaked into that and trying to win these guys at grammy. These really really great musicians. Who were in the middle of world war two. I have goosebumps listening to your story. Where is that process now. Though the process now is we hit this weird area so at this. This is should be the first time. I mentioning this. We haven't announced it yet. The album was released. Technically on november eleventh of twenty twenty. That's when it had its digital release and that's when it had its released on all the streaming platforms like spotify apple music. It got released then than a number of media things since then. I've been on national news since then the the streaming numbers are extremely high for a historical album. I think album on spotify gets about twenty two thousand ish monthly listeners. Which is incredible. We're at the point where you start putting in your applications and recently i finished the the actual. Cd's the liner notes linked up with historians. I have a lot of different historians that have helped me write the liner notes for the actual physical cds when people. I the cd's the things that comes along with. The cds is a dvd lab. My grandpa has war to film that he brought home of the ban practicing their instruments. And my grandpa doing that and all that out in the pacific. So it's a multi disc release. You get a dvd of the band. You get this vintage cd of historic recordings and you get about twenty pages of liner notes from different historians kind of commenting on all the different things from my grandpa's oral history in a broader sense you get all these things and the album. Artwork was done in that process of getting cd's out finished up in november of two thousand twenty. I hastily put together. This was before. I even before the grammy was even a thought. I hastily put together this album cover on the original which was okay but it was me. It wasn't a professional thing. It was just to get it out for the album's union album cover just to cover for the The digital release thinking be able to go back once. I get rational to do the album. Cover the album. The new album covers finished. And i went over to the distributor and i thought i assumed it would be something really basic. Hey can you can you. You able to pull that old album cover off and just put this one on because this one looks way better in. This is the one i liked and they said well we'd have to cancel your previous album and take it down. And then we put it up or just released. Have a new release date with this album and a deal was made recently with the world war two museum and they're gonna do a test run with the album and the the national one over new orleans. It's on hold right now because her down there so we're going to be in contact in about thirty days. I'm thinking we could get have better odds and more more of a chance with this new release so there's gonna be a new release date of this year with the album with the new release in with the the recordings with the cd. There will be a new official release data. Think i have it for october when philippines campaign started. That'll be the new release date and then our grammy will try and build more momentum and give us a better shot at getting these guys. Grammy will no longer be this award. Show that we're applying boards the next one but that's still very much the goal. That's incredible that is so exciting for you and for your family. The families of all of the musicians are they aware of what you're doing. They are the ones that have contacted and been in contact with some of them. Follow the the band's social media on facebook there they're all very excited and they love to hear that. And i i keep in close contact with them because not only because i want them to know about it but At some point. I need to dig more into the story of those guys because eventually i'll be writing a book on all of the on my grandpa's journey through this and all the other guys in the band. When they've linked up in the philippines. And so i'll be interviewing. All of them were stories and pictures. Piazza's been enjoyed it. Talk about all that stuff with them. In hero stories of my grandpa's wartime buddies in it's it's almost as if when whenever i talked to them and hear their stories. That no my grandpa's closeness to those guys in music they made. It's almost like i'm hearing almost like i inherited extra grandpa's it's feeling to talk to them about that stuff. What a neat thought. And i would think it would make you feel closer to your grandpa to hear their opinion of him and their interactions with him and how much they admired and liked him. Yeah definitely does actually so one of the guy who did a lot of the musical arrangements is was probably his best friend in the group. His name was joe. Milazzo and johm alonzo passed away in the eighties in new york. And i tracked down joma. Lhasa's sister who is in her seventies. now. I can't wait to chat with her and listened to stories about the guy mike grant but would say was probably be his best friend in the group tomasso. It's pretty exciting. And there's also. I'm working on a manuscript for a say probably like thirty page book for a publisher and we're open a book come out along the way to give it even more of a boost and more eyeballs on it so we can possibly have a better turn out hoping for at least a nomination for these guys. I would hope so. It's such a historic thing that Even have the more i dig into. Its own hoping that that minimum. We can at least get a nomination for these guys. Be such an honor. How many brothers and sisters do you have a brother who's maybe about thirteen months older than me. And then i've got to younger sisters. One of whom is a whiz on the piano and actually is the accompaniment at a local high school for a the the choir class in the music last letter their reactions to your project you know. All of my cousins and my aunts and uncles. They love this for a number of reasons. They know how close being grandpa are. They all adore him for the same reasons i do. And it's just brings a smile to all their faces in an excitement to to see people talk a grandpa and his music in. They'll email me in text me when they see something or hear applaud say brightens their day. They all love it. And they're happy that grandpa's music is getting out. There is your dad's still living. My dad's still around. He's a big fan of the project. works median and. I asked him things about pause. Really all my my dad my uncles. I'll ask them things. If i don't know something about poor or something spicy about a grandpa story ago ask them. Or i'll ask uncle who's just retired as a music teacher. Alaskan him specifics about grandpa's musical styles or is what is trump was. Where can.

"Just to get his extra practice in because he knew that's what we want to do with his life after the war pretty amazing because when i saw the picture and the caption my first thought was wasn't he afraid of getting captured or getting hurt. Yeah you know. He mentioned that in his he tells portion of that story in in the oral history. Track on the actual cd any munitions as a sixty whatever. It is sixty two when he does that. Nineteen eighty four to six. You know every time he went into the jungle he was scared. He has this one encounter where he goes into the jungle and he starts playing and he hears noises loud noise in a bush nearby and his hand immediately goes for the marine life yet a marine life with him and he felt like his heart was gonna jump out of its chest because he thought oh there we go. Something's going to happen and this beautiful bird. Just flies out of the bush that's indigenous to the philippines in he breathe the sigh of relief and so looking back he was tariff he said he says he was terrified. Going there which couldn't blame him. It's especially in the pacific away. The war was fought there. You didn't know what was gonna happen. Where so i'm surprised. He went out there. But yeah when you're nineteen or twenty. I guess you think the odds are in your favor. Can you share other stories that your grandfather shared on his oral history or or told you. Yeah actually my favorite story is before. He joins his band to go out into the pacific. Actually share this story. I shared at his funeral when i did his eulogy. As one of my favorite stories kind of describes the kind of person my grandpa was he had gone into the army air force over in utah. Signed up in salt lake city was shipped over for basic training and was pulled into the band thereby buddy and got sent to southern california to march field everywhere. My grandpa went. He was the lead trumpet player when he was high ledge as a kid and even into the first year of university before harbor he was used to being leaked trumpet and he gets down to march field. Marshfield is where all the big band musicians are in all the hollywood recording musicians are that have joined. The military guys are all in southern california and all season and talented musicians. So my grandpa arrives down there. And he's not i share anymore. He's not second charity more. He's more like third and fourth. He's at march fuel learning from these professional musicians for a year and he's soaking up all the information from them and learning from them and increasing is playing range and after a year a call came in to march field band headquarters for a trumpet player for newly formed band to go off to the pacific but it was for a trumpet player with a substance rating. My grandpa was a private at. The time he says is the oral history. That all the sergeants in his unit were married. He walked over to the chief worn officers office and asked if he could take the place of the mary so the married men stay behind with his family. He says the war officer Became a little emotional and choked up a little bit and said yes that could be done. If that's your will we can. We can work out for you. And so that's how by ends up in the pacific. He goes take the place of somebody so they could stay behind for their families. That's just the kind of person he was. And that's my favorite story about him. The military. That's really sweet. That really talks to his decision as well about not playing in a symphony but opting to become a music teacher to stay with a family very much so easy was very family oriented guy that was i mean even more than music. Music was his whole life but his family was even more. So and so. That's that's of been his. His thing is whole life and decisions his life or based around. That is probably the best person i've ever met in my life. My grandpa so how many children and grandchildren did he have. My grandpa has four sons. My dad is some number three. got fourteen grandchildren. I wanna say great grand children. While he was alive he had four. But he's got more now so we didn't get some great grandchildren. I can't what a nice legacy are there. Other stories that you would like to share with with us about your granddad doors military. That whole band story is pretty fascinating. Especially if you don't know things about how military band people think military bands earn world war two in the main people that come to mind or the glenn miller's of the world those guys join the military who played really really really big shows back away from the action like in london or paris or put a. There's quite a few bands that were just filled with really talented guys. That were just everyday guys back then and they would play shows that closes up on the front line for guys who were doing the actual sliding one of the first shows they did was on the. They arrived on late in the philippines. The the action was still going on. They had not rehearsed yet as a band but they got organized the on the west coast shipped overseas instead of the first shows. They plays with the uso group. He describes the setting up a a makeshift stage. Hanging lights on blown-up palm trees. And so this. This is the liberal front. That i show is gonna be on. Show up as a musician in your daf is holding Or hanging lights from bona poetry entry. You can i mean you gotta get nervous. I would think i show. They're playing together with the uso group. Doing it old show with think it's a broadway show if i remember right and it was made into a movie called hell's pop so that's the first show. They're doing there in the middle of the show. And hiding breaks off directly behind the stage across the ravine machine-gun via the first real foray entertaining the troops ends up. Being this frontline show. They ended up finishing the show. It's speaks to the composer that these guys had the real professionalism. They added service members and and dedication to what their role is in the war. All those guys the best part of the war. My grandpa was being able to play music. And give those guys on the front line. We're doing the actual fighting arrested in a little break mentally and give them a taste home while they were thousands of miles away from home and he lived that that was. That was the best part of the war. Fame was playing music for others. That story really sticks out to me of them but all those guys in that band aid they did such incredible music. If you listen to the album. It's just astonishing to think of how they recorded in the middle in the middle of a war and attempts. How did they record. So they're a frontline show and people think about Glenn miller glenn miller had plenty of recording access around him. Because he's glenn miller and so there's recordings of glenn miller and his band and because they were back from the front lines and they could play in a studio if they wanted to or broadcast on the radio but these guys are in a junk wall in the middle delware. Play for guys who were on the front line sometimes on the front lines. Equipment is definitely an issue and while i researched this. This is kind of how i discovered it. It's such a rare thing because these are big name guys and they don't have the equipment. They basically have their instruments at microphones. And unless they were just doing shows like that on the front lines by the time they get to manila and fort. Mckinley the The far east. Eric headquarters far east air force headquarters. Which is it's a big deal. There's there's generals there there's guys who rub elbows with macarthur there and so it's kind of a big deal where they are at one point before they're coming home. A special services unit comes through who happened to have a wire recorder. It was decided by the chief warrant officer the big the ban that they wanted to record themselves before they go home just for fun just because they enjoy playing with each other and they've been through so much they talked to these two guys in that special services union. This yeah go ahead use the the wire recorder in so they set this thing up and my grandpa has this story written down in the asleep that holds the records about the equipment. They use in some of the reasons. I think it sounds pretty good for what they had. But some of the some of the reasons it might not sound as as high quality as if you were in a studio like the microphone. They add was made only for a a singer. And so it's picking up all the sounds of all the instruments any rates that it's it's too much for that microphone while you can still make out all the sound. The way that worked is a set this microphone up on the post inside their performance tent and the wire recorder ran from the microphone across the compound to another ten where these special service guys had their wire recorder in hip record they just played and it was just an afternoon session. They played some of their typical songs. They some of the band members arranged the they're all occupied big bands songs. But they're special arrangements done by guys in the band. so it's their version of the songs. They played in their filipinos. They're the flags were up and it was just a casual thing that they did You can even tell some of the tracks on produce so after trump rhapsody on the track and moves onto the song prieto inbetween. I don't know if there's a false start. I wish i could make the words out better but you can hear them in the background talking. The music stops. You can hear the chief worn officer.

"You know over the last few years daily fantasy sports has dominated the sport seen a couple years ago. You couldn't turn on the tv or radio without hearing the commercials. I even had to read them for the show but an amazing new book is taking us behind the scenes of this interesting world of daily fantasy sports. That book is dealing with kings and the writer is daniel. Barberie see who was the yankees beat writer for the wall street journal. And we're lucky to have daniel on the phone with us now daniel. Thanks for joining us. Grammy dan first off dealing with kings is an amazing eye-opening book. And as i said before you were already in the sports scene but it took another sportswriter to turn onto daily fantasy sports. So how'd that come about. It was pretty crazy. I mean i haven't really heard a daily fantasy sports at all until about april may of two thousand fifteen when i was covering the yankees upper wall street journal as you noted and Another spokesman reaction in the press. Box fenway park and under the sports writer essentially showed me fan duel and i was struck by three. Immediate reaction is the first one is well. this is really fun The second was how on earth does this legal and the third was I'm going to make a ton of money on this So i was right on the first two in that. It is a lot of fun as the game itself. The second is it is crazy legal at all on that struck me in the same way. It's a lot of other people and then third. I was definitely wrong about where i was going to. Suddenly get rich quick. Because i was a baseball writer and obviously i should be so good at this fantasy sports baseball thing. I and that.

Rebekah Lyons Discusses the Title of Her New Devotional 'a Surrendered Yes: 52 Devotions to Let Go and Live Free'
"I'm going to ask you you know the softball question that i ask A writer of a book the title. Okay by the way great title. It's called a surrendered. yes Fifty two devotion to let go and live free as surrendered. Yes the softball question is what does that mean yes. Well none of us want to surrender. Usually never choose that But what i've learned is. That's always a nudge a whisper. It's a. It's something that prompts us. That usually takes us to a place. That's going to shift our life possibly or shift our everyday. Maybe it's a posture. Maybe it's a decision of growing families shifting careers moving across country. But then i also think it's very much in everyday practice of gratitude of forgiveness of surrender really just accepting. What is so that you can actually get that out and then to kind of interrupt that and show you what a healing journey looks like. So what prompted you to write a devotional. I've actually thought of doing that. At some point because i have a lot of those kinds of thoughts and i think that's valuable thought and if it's a valuable thought you know it probably didn't originate with you because truth is truth wisdom's wisdom. It's it's from the lord but like when did you get the idea that because he obviously britain other books but when you get the idea that you wanted to do a devotional devotional well. I've found that the themes i kept writing about. We're always surrender. Just this acceptance of the way things are instead of fighting against. I found that my anxiety was really rooted in pushing against her fighting against the obstacles or the barriers. In my life that i would come up again. And so that would actually increase anxiety by fighting against it versus accepting it and then finding the peace lead my heart and so i just thought if this is a a season of life like my anxiety journey started eleven years ago panic attacks and then it's now been a healing journey for a season. It's like part of that. Came a dovetailed with this. This acceptance this release saying god okay. i don't wanna live life the way life never looks the way we plant anyways so we can either get mad about that and be frustrated and fight it or we can go okay that that serenity prayer grammy the the wisdom to accept what i cannot change but then to know the difference of the things i

Remembering Legendary Rolling Stones Drummer Charlie Watts
"Charlie Watts joined the Rolling Stones in the early days of the band 1963. It was a bit of a left turn. His early interest was in jazz, percussion and I love this quote from Charlie about joining the band, he said. It meant decades of quote, seeing mixed bum running around in front of me. Which in a way sums up what Charlie did. He provided the steady beat for the group, a group of rock stars who unlike him, embraced the rock star lifestyle and the limelight. Today. We really wanted to start by talking to someone who can help us parse out how important Charlie's worked with the Rolling Stones was Rob Bowman is a Grammy winner and professor of music at York University, as well as a music writer. He first met Charlie Watts in 2000, and two when he was interviewing him for a Rolling Stones book. And he kept in touch with Charlie ever since. Hi, Rob. Thanks for joining us. Good morning. How are you? I am. Well, I want to say I'm really sorry for your loss. Um, what was the first thing that came to your mind when you when you heard the news that Charlie Watts don't I guess. Shock so numb stand, you know, I've been worried for several years. Sooner or later. One of the Rolling Stones are just it was going to pass away or get sick and they were going to be able to play and, uh Couple weeks ago, Of course, Charlie announced Buddy, You've got an emergency operation and wouldn't play the tour and I thought it was so weird that they were going to do the tour without him, because that's not like them. Keith had always said they would never play without Charlie and figure it out. And, of course, when he passed yesterday, my meat so it is. That's why they decided to play the tour. They knew Charlie was dying, and Charlie. I told him to go ahead play. What do you remember? What do you remember first about meeting him? What was he like? He was an amazing, gentle, humble man with an incredible mind for jazz

Jon Levy on Cultivating Influence to Build Friendships
"You're around twenty eight twenty nine and you decide to start this thing that you call the influencers dinner right but it hits an interesting twist. Can you kind of tell our listeners about the the roles of this dinner. It's kind of little a little bit different. So i wanted to figure out how to connect with these highly influential people and i realized i needed to do something completely out of the ordinary or they would never notice me so invite twelve people at a time. But they're not allowed to talk about what they do or even give their last name. They cook dinner together. And then when we sit down to eat we play a ridiculous game. We try to guess what people do professionally. And then we find out we're sitting with about laureates. Olympians editors achieve celebrities. Grammy award winning musicians. I hosted over two thousand people ranging from like the world's foremost expert on infectious diseases to members of royalty and even the voice of the dog from who let the dogs out who won a grammy for the fell. Like just ridiculous people right and it's grown into by the largest community of its type in the world of thousand members. Two hundred twenty seven dinners ten cities in three countries. Yeah it's kind of silly also not silly. It sounds awesome and this idea. You know what it's turned into. It seems like it's a little bit different than what it really starts. Your original goal wasn't necessarily like changed the world. It will bring together awesome. People is what you're saying. Yeah book yeah it's I figured that you know. I didn't wanna be networker when you look at the the research networking people absolutely hate it. I mean it's just miserable. It makes us feel dirty. But i realized doesn't make us feel dirty is making friends and being a part of a community so i figured if i could get these people not just to connect with me but with each other. Their lives would improve and so admired in the process so that was my focus. It's not just about knowing somebody but for them to know that. I know and as many of them as possible. Everybody's better off.

"One of the big stories in the music industry right now has been the response to hip hop star two babies homophobic comments, which he made during a festival in Miami late last month. As NPR's Elizabeth Blair reports, the fallout was swift as multiple festivals canceled his shows. With his millions of followers on social media. The baby has a powerful platform. He's one BT awards and been nominated for Grammys. I'm one of the greatest ain't no debate. No, no, I'm still levitated medicated. Ironic I gave him love and they and the painting on me.

During his concert at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, he told the audience to put your cell phone light up. If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now. The backlash was immediate. Dua Lipa distanced herself from the baby Lollapalooza removed him from the lineup. Then more festivals canceled two shows Elton John and Madonna railed against the misinformation in his comments about HIV. I think there's a new moment. There's definitely a new moment. The baby is a big star and Brown University professor Tricia Rose says The cost to his career is significant. At the same time, she says, the music industry has long tolerated and profited from artists like the baby. There's many, many artists who are promoted by the industry, who are celebrated by the industry because of their quote unquote edgy, extreme behavior. And you know that is a longstanding pattern that has not abated in any way And then you know when they step out of line about when and how they actually live into that identity.

"It's her birthday and making sure that they recognize the other kids and some of it does just happen naturally and it's fun to watch watches those relationships row our mother the original good grandma. She did grandma's camps to she called them. Can't grandma and to this day my oldest her was so my my mom's grandkids came in sets of three so she had three hit each of the grandma's camps and those three oldest girl's Who are now mothers. And it's just it warms your heart to see that relationship that friendship those three girls have as they are encouraging each other as young mothers and and helping each other and it's That cousin relationship is definitely important. And can be such a great support. In your life. I interviewed a hana electro a few weeks ago. She wrote a book a camp. Graham are camp cousins. I think she called it and that was one of the things that she said was. Her goal was to have cousins become friends so they could know each other. And i think that's such an important part of growing up is knowing your cousins. Yes i am actually working with my dad. Right now Formatting his life story it's interesting to to read from his perspective and understanding how important our ancestors are as well as our posterity. And i think he he's done such a marvelous job in bringing all of that together and i've really enjoyed helping him as we do the layout on this to printed up to print it into a book more about my ancestors. I think that that's where we're grandma's can definitely make a difference is bringing that whole the whole family lined together and having the history of the family the knowledge of it to continue down the generations to come so that they understand their family line in where they came from and who they are a long time ago an earlier life. I used to help grandparents right their life story. And i did it using pictures and i would tell tell people to. They would come to this event. I'd say bring five pictures and then just tell me about what happened. Or what surrounds these pictures. Something just to get grandparents to start talking. And then that was the way they could then share with their children and grandchildren. Something as simple as what happened in this picture. I think that's an important tradition. That grandparents can help visor and there are so many different places. Now that you can go where you can create life stories my Richards children gave him a christmas gift last year. Where he writes they would he would get a prompt in an email and he would write about whatever the prompt was and he just got the books back so the year worth of stories now. They have all of these stories of his childhood in his upbringing and things that were near and dear to his heart on our website. We also have a link to my life. My story book. We started this company that they have a program where said twenty four question prompt and they encourage which pictures to go with which at one in his ends up becoming a very short picture book. So easy for you to sit down and read with a child this picture book and you have the complete history from beginning to the wherever graham. Our great grandparents are at. We can sit down and read with a child so my life. My story book is a great program where you can put together your own picture book of your life story. Oh that's a great idea. I know there are several companies that you can do that online now. When i started this years ago there there was no facebook. there was back there was barely internet. People didn't even know about it. But i think anything that you can do to help give your child. A sense of belonging is important. I remember about the same time. I embroidered this wall hanging that said to mugs important gifts. You can give your children are roots and were and wings..

Can larry the numbers and how columns and rows work and you know then of course turn on some music and starts singing bingo. Bi ngo. ingo was his name. O at the fun idea. I love incorporating learning with fun. I think that is just so cool. When lincoln slip that in and they don't realize it and that's where i feel like my an teaching i taught second grade and kindergarten and definitely comes into play. I want them to be learning. And that's like back to the treat bags as i put their birth dates on it. You know they have to figure out who's bag is. Who's by the birth date or by their initials. They're seeing that. Reagan d win is our w so. She's recognizing that and then doing again like how old they are with like if she's five do five flowers on the bag is so anyway. Yeah i'm all about having fun and learning at the same time. And that's one of the things i like about your post. Is that you show grandparents. How do that so it's not only having fun but it's having fun and learning at the same time yes definitely the talk about how your grandchildren interact with each other. So you have nineteen grandchildren of wide range of ages. How do you encourage them to interact or does it just happen. Naturally because the richards grandchildren and my grandchildren. We were married almost seven years ago at the ones that are younger kind of know each other because they've grown up with each other. The older ones the oldest eight really. Just call me choline which is fine. And i'm their friends and we have a great relationship in. They have a great bond there. Nanna jan was wonderful and having them together in creating those friendships one of the ways that we also have opportunity to have the grandkids. Interactive's will do grandma's camp and this past summer. I had my granddaughter reagan and richards. Granddaughter willow. They came for their five year old grandma's camp and they created such bond having those three days that we got to do activities together which also gives me a chance to have more one on one because there are so many of us when we get together. I don't always get to have that quality time with the grand kids and so we did three days together where we did different activities and crafts. We cap a journal and had absolutely wonderful wonderful time so the grandmas camps definitely help..

"That's the biggest advantage. I see of travel is that it is such an educational opportunity for children and it reinforces what they learn in the school systems hundred percent very well said and if i may add to this something that i think most parents are not really aware of our additional benefits that come out from traveling with your children so for example we all know or suspect that they are learning about the world as they travel through it which certainly was the case when we did it with our children. You know those cultural differences relieve impression and now so many things but there is also not only they exploring the world outside of themselves but unbeknownst to them. They're really learning about themselves. They're learning life skills. They're developing not just new perspectives but discovering personal interests. That that's this interesting. Byproduct of getting your kids out of their comfort zone and from what's familiar now. That's what travel affords Everybody not just children but particularly children who are going through. Whether it's adolescence are changes that are going on in their lives. All of this mixed together with this discovery about themselves through what they're seeing externally is i wasn't aware of When we embarked our trip and really realized. When i got back it's no surprise at my older son is now twenty three years old. Got his first job. Out of college at spacex he developed this love and appreciation for not just photography. that's a life skill. He learned while he was driving but an appreciation for our nautical engineering and space rocketry. That came out of visiting places like the kennedy space center and so forth so it could lead to be really anything but this gives children opportunity to discover themselves without the kind of influence of their peers and and you know kind of the day to day struggles that they have is young people. I hope the audience out there really takes this to heart. Maybe in some way practices on their own because to be aware of it will really enhance the experience. I think without being no intentional about it. 'cause it should just it just kind of happens and that's where the magic is and that's why go to career in trying to promote All the things that families can do together not just a theme park beach the case. It's some we talked about. But you know there's so many great ships one mention For example dude ranches very popular with the multi gen skipped gen circles if it's a chance to get outdoors and You can not just ride horses by go fly fishing and you'll quality time the cookout or you know by the by the can fire. You know making a sure or young burning marshmallows. Toasted marshmallows students attended arnhem but You know these are. There's so many things that i know. Parents grandparents alike will take the time to research. Discover not to put a plug for family travel association that i that i founded seven years ago but family travel dot org. I urge here audience. Check it out and maybe get some ideas and look at things that you never thought were even possible. Scuba diving with with children is is a possibility. I've gone on dive trips all around the world with my kids and other families ten years ago. I didn't think that was even remotely possible. I didn't realize that a ten year old could certify. Get their certification. I thought it would have been at least in the teens. If not a little older but anyway there's so much out there but as we kind of started with its finding that that kind of common ground that so important one planning something like this you know. What are some of the things that everyone in the family likes to do. And one last thing a common mistake that's also made when it comes to planning travel With families and certainly with multi jan groups is that they don't consider the activities before the destination in other words. People said okay. Where do you wanna go. And let's say for the sake of argument. Someone says i want to go to hawaii and allies. Great were really. What hawaii is is destination with beaches resorts things like diving as i mentioned some cultural experiences but if you pick the destination i you limit yourself to that destination offers instead. Start with all. I wanna go. Sailing are oh. I wanna beach vacation decide on the activity then. Your geography is much larger than you can choose from a greater variety not to mention expenses. Let's say everyone decides to go to hawaii but some people live in florida You know those are all factors so pick the activities. I the destination second. I hope you enjoy today's episode of the adventures with remy.

"Was mortified by that at silly thing i five sisters and two brothers. My mom and my dad. We lived in montana in a mining town. And not a lot of money to go round. But i never knew that especially at christmas time because my parents saved all year so that we could have a celebration you see. My dad grew up on a ranch and his celebrations were small and my mother grew up as a single child in the war in england and so christmas was always special with the english traditions but they were never in her home she got to walk around and see those tradition so see decided when she had children that we were going to have family tradition in the home to celebrate and it started about two weeks before Chris where we would get together on a friday night when my father was done working and he would pick us up whatever till learn more at home at the time and we would go out to dinner. He gave each child that went to dinner. A five dollar bill and said now we're going to go shopping downtown which was all dressed up in Beautiful christmas decorations and we would go shopping. And you could buy gifts for the family and with five sisters and two brothers and five dollars and my mom and dad. A doesn't go really far so you had to be kind of creative and you would team up with may be your sister and then you'd have ten dollars and you could buy gifts. We would shop two or three days before christmas. We got to put our tree up and then all the presence went under the tree and we would be shaking gifts. And it's really really difficult for us to calm down. Go to sleep any night of the week because we knew what was downstairs and we talked about christmas when we talked about santa and being the area that i lived in. We had snow so we didn't have to worry about having a white christmas so my mom would tend us outside to do sledding and to really get some of that energy out so when we did come in have dinner go to bed. We could do that but christmasy was a totally different story. We would go sledding. We'd come in the house and would probably have some kind of traditional italian meal now. We weren't italian. She thought that the carbs the pasta help asleep. She also made wit. My mom called a hi-fi now that i know what it was. I just giggle and laugh because it was mad dog twenty twenty and seven up and so we had our little cocktail and my mom was okay with us having it only on christmas eve because she really wanted to get some sleep in so we had new pajamas for christmas. Eve said good night when upstairs and waited for santa to arrive..

"Favorite gift was a bicycle and add fringe on the steering wheel. A headland abell and it was a girl's bicycle. I got very proficient on that bike. I could ride up and down the ridge to see my friends and there was a nice meal involved in that trip. And i got to the point that i could ride down that hill on the handlebars of that bike. Even though we can't visit with my granddaughter's christmas. I'm looking forward to continuing my food traditions with them. We're going to have a zoom christmas this year on christmas day. Of course food will be involved during our session. One of my granddaughters making my recipe for christmas punch. The other one of my granddaughters is making her grandfather's favorite fruit salad recipe. It's cold grape nuts. Whip and it's a fairly complicated recipe. Because she will have to make an egg hunting and let it cool i. I'm looking forward to talking her through making that. It's a little bit complicated. Because she and her mother had never actually heard of a double boiler so i had to order a double boiler from amazon ship. It to their home so they would have it ready to make the special dish later in the morning. We're going to have our main meal together and the adult sas selected an adult cocktail that we night this year. It's going to be moses at thanksgiving. It was champagne with cranberry juice and cranberry slow moving it. After we came back from mass we would have a bite to eat and we never waited till christmas morning so after midnight. When we got back home we would open all of our gifts so that meant that all of us would sleep in giving our mother time to do the turkey because we were still in bed not causing any commotion in the kitchen because we were four children but we also had three cousins living with us. So yeah so. Christmas was always christmas eve story about christmas. That is very very meaningful to both my husband in i. My husband's name is gordon. Now we have two girls so when they were little. I made christening outfit so we would dress the doll in the christening gown and put the dog in a little cradle under the tree and then before the girls were allowed or anybody was allowed to open treats. We would sing happy birthday baby. Jesus.

"My grandmother on my mom's side of the family and my grandfather they would always be happy to see us at christmas two and they had a little. They had a little tree and they would put out candy for all of all of their grandchildren. They had candy. Chris special christmas candy that they would get and put out for us and they would just we would sit around and again as i said family and faith and food for like kind of the themes in our family so my grandma parents on my mom's side we would visit at their home and my mom's brother would come from ohio and my mom's sister would come from ohio and we would all pack into their living room and just share those sitting around the tree the tree and enjoying each other's company enjoying the conversation and the christmas season was a huge lesson to be with all of them. And everyone would Would cry when you cry. When the cousins had to leave to go back to ohio because we so enjoyed being together but my favorite christmas memories. They pretty much all involve family to give you context. There were five of us children and we were all world war. Two baby boom babies. Needless to say post world war two. There wasn't a lot under. The christmas tree for us tended to be practical things like a new pair of new underwear socks. A new ream of three hold paper for a school notebooks. And if we had really been good a box of brand new crayons and a coloring book so the important part of christmas for the day for us was going to our grandmother's i we would go to my grandmother lops. She lives two miles away in a huge old farmhouse and she was german and her famous meal was breakfast. We always went there for breakfast. And she always made cinnamon buns from scratch. I always got to put the frosting on the cinnamon buns and we would have our cinnamon buns with chocolate. Our next visit would be to our hill grandmother. She lived a few minutes away close to the river in a big old house and we went there for dinner every year. She was famous for her home. Made dinner rolls and when those rules would come out of the oven. I always got to talk those roles with butter. I have such good memories of my grandmother's meals and working with them. The kitchen sadly both of my grandmothers had passed by the time. I was twelve but then christmas took a better term for us. Economy got a little bit better and My dad was still working three jobs.

"My dad's family was we would go from house to house not on the same day but christmas. Dinner was at my aunt's house. My grandmother lived with my aunt and her husband and their three children and so our family of three children. My dad and my mom would spend christmas dinner with them and we had a huge spread of food analogy christmas day and then the following days of the week we would visit my dad's other brothers or sisters homes so our christmas holidays were were stretched out for over a whole week and in my family it was all about food and family and faith and might my dad's heritage is from slovakia and so the family on that side of the family we made. We did a lot of baking. They did a lot of baking of these amazing delicious pastries and all kinds of pastries and every time we would gather. There was this table. Beautifully adorned with christmas day and there was also plates laden with pastries and cookies that my aunt had taken days to bake is delicious pastries a we would gather around these tables as we did. The family visits in. I was younger in the family. Because my dad was the youngest in his family he was the youngest child so i was younger than most my cousins but i would sit at the table with my cousins who were ten or more years older than i was and would hear them talking about their life stories and their adventures and sharing family memories and these were the best holidays that we had they were too so memorable and i wrote about it in my christmas letter in the past few years and one of my cousins who called me immediately after she got the card and with the newsletter. And just said it was just like you described. I was right back there at the table. So that was amazing. Memory that i have of our family and to end the feud that we ate. There's another memory. I have about food in my family again. This this about money dad's family. We had a special christmas eve dinner. The menu was the same every year. This was from his heritage in slovakia. He had my grandmother would prepare this food. And then my dad's my dad's family..

"Is a magical time of year for me. I love the hustle. Bustle the smells of hot cider and baking in the oven and i love the sounds of sleigh bells christmas music. I love watching hallmark movies even though the script is pretty predictable. I love watching the snowfall sledding ice skating and throwing snowballs i closed my eyes and immediately returned to my childhood. I remember the excitement of christmas. And the anticipation of what was to come. waiting for. Santa claus was so difficult as with many of the stories. You will hear today. Christmas and my family was more about faith family and food than it was about the toys. We would receive christmas presents from santa. Mostly were items. My sister nine. Eat it pajamas. Sox clothing i remember praying so hard that santa would bring me something that i could take to school for show and tell after the winter break. I certainly didn't wanna talk about my new underwear or my new stocks. Usually santa came through. And i had something appropriate to take school one of my favorite memories as decorating our christmas tree. I remember my mother walking with my sister and me into the woods to find the perfect tree one would be too short another too tall one would be too wide another not full enough and then there was the perfect tree and my mother would saw the truck and three of us would hall at back to the house. My dad was lounge in his recliner. While the three of us decorated the tree my father liked to hang the tinsel however his idea of hanging the tinsel was to throw handfuls of it onto the tree where it would be bunched up and look messy. I like to hang at one piece at a time. My dad was fairly patient with everything else. But not with hanging those long strands of shiny silver. I love sitting in the dark and the living room with only the lights from the tree twinkling. I felt such peace. As i admire the beauty of our handiwork. My mom is artistic and had made a ceramic nativity scene which we placed under the tree. And i still have that nativity set. I loved visiting my grandparents on christmas day and playing with my cousins. It was a fun time. And i cherish those memories and i'm glad to share that with you on this bonus episode of the adventures with grammy. Podcast it is filled with my guests favorite.

"To the adventures with grabbing podcast. I'm your host caroline berry. This podcast is for grandparents who are on the go with their grandchildren. It's for grandparents. Who went to hold special places in grandchildren's hearts and it's for parents who went to ensure loving relationships across the generations. The first podcast is to acquaint you with the format of the upcoming programming and to give you background as to why i have started this project. I have six reasons. They are my grandchildren gavin. Cain channing hunter scarlett and juliet. I want them to dream big. I am an advocate for travel adventures. Because i believe these experiences provide children opportunities for stealth learning and early career exploration key components of big dreams. And what do. I mean by stealth learning learning that takes place. When children least expected they learn about fractions when they're baking cookies and they learn about science when they're baking sour dough starter and the brand and they learn about history when they're visiting historic homes. And they don't even realize they're learning because they're not sitting behind a desk they're not in school learning takes place everywhere and when learning is combined with having fun the learning sticks when our children were young my late husband and i took them on adventures history came alive for them and it was easy for them to learn geography as we traveled across state lines. I want to give my grandchildren. Those same types of experiences and i want to help other grandparents do the same thing. How can you expect your grandchildren to dream big. We don't give them the opportunity to know what is possible in their adult lives. I am a retired high school teacher. I know first hand the importance of children having a vision for their future talking with children as young as five or six years old about their interest and then showing them the real world will have a huge impact on their education and career. Goals and research backs this up one of the adventures. My grandchildren and i enjoyed was a visit to a chocolate factory as we were leaving. One of my grandchildren said when he grows up. He wants to be a chocolatier until that day he didn't even know the word existed and he certainly didn't know the career existent another grandson told his brother as they were leaving an arcade that he went to work there when he grew up and his brother retorted. You don't wanna work there you want to own it. Adventures definitely give children opportunities to dream big. In addition to stealth learning and career exploration the adventures with grammy. Podcast aims to help grandparents answers. Three important questions. How do i ensure a special place in my grandchild heart. Where can i take my grandchildren that is budget friendly fun and educational for all of us. How can i ensure the good times we share will become long lasting memories. My grandchildren will cherish forever. I have structured the podcast into seasons and each week i will interview guests and we will discuss the designated topics season one look at the grandparent experience overall. What is it like to be a grandparent and twenty twenty one and how has grand parenting changed since you were a child. What are the expectations for today's grandparents. We'll look at the grandparent relationship bonding and look at what the research has to say. And we'll also look at what grandparents can do to influence a child's education and career exploration season two will present practical suggestions for interacting with grandchildren. We will discuss activities. Grandparents and grandchildren can do together whether that is face to face in your living room your kitchen or outdoors or from a distance via technology discussions will include such things as mindfulness cooking grainy camp as well as skip generation and multigeneration travel each of the remaining seasons of the adventures with grammy. Podcasts will focus. On a specific geographic region of the united states. Each episode will highlight fun. Budget friendly venues with activities grandparents and grandchildren will enjoy. We will begin on the east coast and work our way west. Our hope adventures with grammy.
