"And then one that grant rope just on what happened yesterday, which was the CCC went through the Regulations The review of their new proposed regulations, the draft and I took testimony yesterday ended that. One of the big subjects who's delivering. So what let's talk about delivery right now but if you wanna you, WanNa know more information for the audience midnight mass dots up stacked dot com check those stories out. Can I say something quickly before I tossed to now because I actually wanted to thank her and her husband Aaron along with Moore's Party and Chris Verve Ray, and Devon Alexander and so many others they've been working on both with 'em cab the. Massachusetts Cannabis Association for delivery along with a bunch of other groups to really ask the CCC to expand the current adult use delivery format right now that format is in journals words worse than Uber Eats, which is to say that it's basically a glorified courier where companies have to own fleet of cars and deliver product from existing brick and mortar stores to consumers and tried to subsist off the fee the delivery fee. What's so fascinating and why and thanking Jon Allen All of those who did that work at their economic analysis showed that even charging forty dollars per delivery based on the number of deliveries that could be done per day because all the product has to go back to the dispensaries in a single day by the way that even at forty dollars delivery, these companies would operate a net loss per month so now and this. Excellent Group has been forcing the CCC to grapple with the fact now without the ability to purchase product at wholesale from cultivators and manufacturers and store that product in a warehouse, the licensed type will fail and the equity that it represents through its existing priority period for ease and se seeking delivery license will be rendered. Moot. So now please can you tell us more and thank you again for letting me give you that introduction. Thinking grants. Yeah I think that for delivery. We expected that it will come out being a normal business like a regular licensed Tom. There was no reason for that. They will pull wholesale. Being able to purchase wholesale it was totally a shock to me when I heard that they expected you to be able to purchase retail at the prices that retailer at and still make a profit because people are already complaining what they're paying when they go to a recent retail establishment. So now on top of twenty percent taxes in the high cost were now going to say. Pay us a delivery fee to. On every order. Okay. It just does it. It's not gonNA. Last, there's no way that everybody's going to be able to hold onto that delivery I. so that's the first problem. Right the the the plan is made above you needed delivery and second you need the retailers to give you. A commission off of retail. That makes sense. You know the delivery fee it's going to be a fight to zero how quickly that will happen. In. Honestly can happen out of the gate else right somebody designing that they get a better deal with the retailer because that could happen and they come out with a lower delivery fee or they want to corner the market Amazon. Can. I mean that that's basically number one. What was the retail model I don't even know if you can call them. Kale. Who would want to like I said this from the very beginning I. I said this is not gonNa work..

Is that this secular humanist, culturally Marxist mindset has found its way into public schools. K to 12.

And that to me is the most grievous thing because you are correct. I know that we need to love our country, not just because it's exceptional and because God has used it, But just because it's kind of like loving your kids, you know, even when they're bad, you love them. You try to get them to turn their mistakes around and to repent. And so you can celebrate their repentance, But we have people cursing. This country and declaring that this country can never be good.

Census to Halt Operations a Month Early Amid Growing Fears of a Population Undercount
"Bureau has confirmed it will wrap up its count a month early. It's a move that many fear could reduce the accuracy of the population. Tout NPR national correspondent has alone. Juan broke this story last week, and the bureau confirmed it last night in hand. The census happens as we know every 10 years. The end date was initially postponed until late October because of the pandemic. Now the bureau is saying that it will wrap up on September 30th. What reasons has the sense is given According to a statement, the Census Bureau director Stephen Dealing Ham posted on the sense sphere is website last night. The Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, who oversees the Census Bureau, has directed the bureau to speed up counting to end it cut it short a month early in order to meet current legal deadline. There's a deadline set by federal fall, it says the Census Bureau via the Commerce secretary has to present to the president the latest state pop. Elation counts by December 31st of this year, and those are the numbers that are used to redistribute seats in Congress among the states, and that was a deadline The bureau had said in April that it could no longer meet because of the pandemic needed more time has asked Congress to give it more time by extending the deadline into 2021. Sir from Congress has not extend that deadline. Democrats have introduced legislation, but Republicans have not regarding those deadlines. And so the Commerce secretary apparently is saying it is time to make this change to make sure we can meet that deadline. Okay, let's break this down a little bit. NPR first reported that the agency had decided to cut short door knocking efforts. What is the impact, though of finishing early like this and what populations Could be most impacted by an undercount. One thing to keep in mind here is that you know, through all this back and forth career officials from the Census Bureau, including associate director for the 2020 cents is an associate director for field operations has publicly stated that the bureau as early as May, they've said, can no longer meet this federal deadline of December 31st And by rushing to do it at this point by not continue to count through October 30 1st there are concerns here that there would be great and accuracy and the data that are collected because we're at a point in the senses, with roughly four out of 10 households that have not yet responded to the senses, those four out of 10 whole household's roughly our representative of historically under counter groups who are Less likely to respond on the census around their own and are really probably only get counted if a door knocker gets to meet them and tries to essentially convinced them to do an in person interview outside their home for about five minutes, trying to collect that information and otherwise the bureau if it rides up, finding homes that are vacant or or seemed to be vacant or unresponsive here has to rely on government records and That way of rely on government records using statistical methods The bear has used before, but the bureau might have to use it at a much, much greater extent. And that could really hurt theocracy because those methods tend to over represent the white population while under representing people of color. Yeah, as we know, the Trump administration tried last year to get a citizenship question added to the census. The Supreme Court rejected that attempt. How does this week's news that the census will wrap up early fit into the bigger picture? I mean, the question everyone is asking is, Is this change? Politically motivated? You know, I've been covering the 2020 cents is all the lead up to it for three more than three years now, and it has been a Siri's Of attempts by the Trump administration to have a very direct hand and how the senses is carried out to be very clear. There is no citizenship question on the 2020 cents is, even though the Trump Administration tried very hard to get one onto the forms, and that on now, you know, just just recently Last Last month, President Trump released a presidential memo calling for unauthorized immigrants to be excluded. From the census numbers used to redistribute seats in Congress. Even though the Constitution says the counting of the whole number of persons in each state that's the that's how that's the people that should be counted nor determine how many states how many seats in Congress each state gets. So this latest move here a lot of Democrats a lot of sense its advocates, given what career officials have said about the need for more time or really questioning. Why is there this push to not extend counting and what happens with Congress? That's NPR's national correspondent. Hotsy Low long hands. Thank you so much for joining us. You're welcome, Tanya.

When Covid Subsided, Israel Reopened Its Schools. It Didn’t Go Well.
"Since its debut and twenty seventeen, the Chinese APP tick tock has become one of the fastest growing social media tools with more than eight hundred, million active users. The APP lets users make short videos that are often shared across the Internet, but Tiktok isn't all fun games for months. Now, a lot of the attention about the APP has been focused on the national security concerns and the collection of user data, and as a result, the platform has been banned in India, by multiple branches of the US military and by Wells Fargo employees most recently however, president trump took aim at tiktok himself by threatening to ban the APP. We're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. We may be doing some other things, a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected dictum. Those remarks were before reports surfaced that Microsoft was pursuing a deal to buy TIKTOK in a press conference at the White House yesterday president trump claimed Microsoft or any other company would have to wait until September fifteen to acquire the APP and would be expected to give a percentage of the profit from the sale to the US Treasury. Joining me now is Graham Webster editor of digit China Project at Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center and a fellow at New America Graham thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me. And Cowan Rosenblatt is a youth and Internet cultural reporter for NBC, News. Dot Com callen thanks for being with us as well. Glad to, be here. Cowen who is the average tiktok user? The average tick tock user really is is a dynamic question because there is a huge range of different people who are using the APP but I'd say the most common person you're gonNA find is someone who is either at the tail end of high school or College who is definitely a solidly in generation the Gen Z. and he was using me APP mostly for fun to do dance challenges trends an engaged with communities that serve to their world. Graham. All of that sounds pretty basic I mean it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about so far what type of data does tiktok collect from its users Graham? We'll TIKTOK is like a lot of social media companies these days It's using an AI driven or machine learning driven algorithm to figure out which content to to individual users. So to get this accomplished, they pay attention to obviously whatever you post that also you know what posts on your feed you look at how long you look at them where your device location is They also tried to track individual users like many apps do by looking at things like screen size and operating system and of course, they have a fair amount of information about your social graph, your your connections to friends and other people that you follow. And so what were some of the concerns around the data collection that way Graham given that it feels like there's a lot of, as you mentioned, other social media platforms and advertisers and the like that are tracking everything that we do already. Why? Why is Tiktok being highlighted here and banned in some of the institutions that we mentioned at the top Well, the basic reason is that tick tock is owned by a Chinese company named Bite Dance and they're a fairly new social media company. They had a breakout a few years ago in China with an APP called junior Tokyo that that is a you know an algorithm, IQ news feed and this is China's first big breakout internationally in terms of social media APPS and really getting take-up in in many different countries around the world not just the United States. So there's A concern that data collected by Tick Tock could end up in the hands of the Chinese company or the Chinese government and wild tick. Tock says that it stores all US user data in the US or in Singapore we don't really have a good way as a society right now to check that type of thing and to make sure that companies commit you when they commit to you know storing data and the Safeway making sure that they're actually doing that. Doesn't sound like we have a lot of that in the United States either though Graham. I mean, we have constant security breaches left and right Right. Well, the United States doesn't have a central data governance or data security or privacy Regulatory System the most prominent example of one globally as Europe, which has the general data protection regulation called the GDP are, and that governs things like when an apper services going to collect your personal information they have to gain certain types of consent and follow certain types of rules and there's also kind of limits the. Idea that if you collect data for a certain reason that you got consent for you shouldn't be able to use it for other reasons and that type of governance is just not that prominent in the US partially because the big US social media companies are not especially keen to have their practices heavily regulated they. They find GDP are in Europe to be burdensome and You know get in the way of making money. Kalland back in June president trump organized a rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and rumor has it that tiktok users promoted buying tickets for the event and didn't show up so that the event would be empty. What do we know about how that rubbed of the administration? So, what we know is it seemed to sort of frustrate the administration. Now, there's no evidence that the Tiktok users and K pop stands who are fans of Korean pop music that they had any impact on turnout. We are going through a global pandemic. There are a lot of factors going on right now. So it is really hard to know sort of what that impact was. But what we do know is it likely inflated expectations for turnout. The administration was planning to have a second rally after the main rally in Tulsa. which they then had to cancel, and so we think that it really messed with them. It was a it was a real genuine troll on the part of these tic TAC users against the president, and it really seemed to rub him the wrong way and there are lots of Tiktok users young first time voters who are telling me that when trump said, he wanted to ban this APP that was a retaliation for what they did the stunt they pulled the prank they pulled in Tulsa most what they think is happening. That's what they think is happening why there is no evidence that that's the president's line of thinking but that's what these eighteen to twenty two year olds are telling me that that's their beliefs. Cowan, we talked about The you know whether or not talk users actually had any effect on the trump rally in Tulsa back in June but more more directly here wondering if you're seeing any more political movement on the APP, whether it's a pro trump or pro biden or anti-trump anti, Biden has it started to move away from dance and song and move towards more political leaning so far. It can do both things at once actually. So there are still the dance trends. There are massive accounts that are just enjoying music on the APP but we see a lot of politics on Tiktok now maybe more than ever some young people are telling me they feel that because their home in quarantine and because politics ramping up nationally as we get closer to this election that they're seeing more and more politics in their feet, and what we're seeing is a not so much pro by content, but a lot of anti-trump content and I WANNA be clear. There is Republican Todd Democrat tiktok liberal Tick Tock conservative Tiktok. But what it appears to be is a lot of generation. Z.. Has a anti-trump sentiment and that does not mean they heavy pro biden sentiment. But things that we see our young people say, Hey, on this day, everyone go to president, trump's campaign store and put these products in your cart. But don't check out because allegedly that messes with their inventory or everyone on this day go to president trump's twitter account and report account, and let's see we can get a taken down. So we're still seeing these sort of organized movements sort of Troll, the president and a lot of discussion of politics but whether or not that is in in favor of vice, President Biden or in favor of president trump is sort of yet to be seen. Graham LE. Let's talk a little bit. But I mean, it sounds like tiktok users are for the most part having fun on the site sort of trying to do the things that Collina's talking about here but. On a more serious note, the trump administration has been trying to ban the APP. They're citing national security concerns, concerns over censorship by the Chinese government. Valid are any of those concerns really given what you know about China US politics Well I think it's you have to separate them out So the the concern about censorship I think is legitimate there was there was an example a little while ago where it looked like some of the censorship that they would do in China restricting conversations about things the Communist Party doesn't like discussed had bled over into the international product Now, Tiktok said that they were addressing that wasn't intended again, we don't really. Have a good way in the United States to check up on that and to kind of make sure that speech isn't being censored one way or the other the national security issue I think requires a lot more imagination Now, you know as was mentioned, the the military has has told service members to not use the APP and I think that makes a good amount a sense you know if if you're concerned about an APP Having links to a potential adversary There's all sorts of possibilities of ways that it could be exploited even just using location data of of service members or people who work in sensitive facilities. But if you don't work in sensitive facilities, if you're just sort of going around and and and doing the fun things and engaging in some of the political discourse that Cowan was mentioning you know there's not. A real big national security issue there a I will say that some people think that collecting the full aggregate totality of US Tiktok users could be used later in a analysis to try to do something, but it's really imaginative at this point whereas I think the censorship concerns a real and could be checked on and data privacy concerns are real but should be able to be checked on as well. What about the fact that we we just heard from Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group in the previous segment talking about how the United States is viewed internationally in terms of our response to the corona virus. But I did ask in also about his thoughts on what this Tiktok dust up between president trump and China what seemed to Be Rooted in and he said, you know this is also part of trump's sort of relationship with how he views China and Chinese technology he's gone after while way he's gone you know talked a lot about five G. technologies. So do you see that I mean? Do you see that as a pattern in how the president views technologies specifically that's coming out of China. Yeah I think the you know the trump administration's been. Pursuing a campaign of you know escalating what could be a new type of Cold War approach to China and a lot of it is wrapped up in technology and and I think the focus on Tiktok really makes the most sense. If you consider it a distraction from two things I is a distraction from actual problems with China you know the the trump administration got this phase one trade deal which didn't really get to the deep issues of subsidy and market access and intellectual property protection. And, on the other hand, it's distracting from the fact that a lot of these security concerns should apply across many apps. Why just tick Tock you know you're talking about including American made apps like facebook and twitter. Yeah I mean the concerns are different when the parent company is in China but there are really unaccountable data collection methods going on across ad networks and data brokers are building profiles of Americans and people in other countries that can be purchased just with money and you know it's not only add companies that by this data governments can get it to. Callan, as we sort of touched on this earlier. But of course, we I, say this all the time we're heading into one of the most consequential presedential elections in my lifetime at least social media is constantly changing is tiktok going to be a thing and twenty twenty and November, or is it going to be eclipse with something else or it'll change the? Will it change the election? Calvin what are your thoughts on that? I don't see Tiktok going away anytime soon, as long as the president allows it to operate in the United States I think we're gonNA see more is eight organizing on the APP among young people and I think we're GONNA see. TIKTOK. As long as Microsoft buys it or another company comes in to allow it to operate in the US I think it's going to stick around for a long time. I mean the president did Callan has also asked that Microsoft give money to the Treasury. If it makes this sale, we is anybody else interested in buying tiktok or is it just Microsoft right now? I don't think anyone else has come out as far as I'm aware and said that they are interested in purchasing Tik. Tok I think Microsoft even just recently confirmed that they were interested in this conversation, but it appears a deal needs to be made by September fifteenth. So if someone's going to buy it, it has to happen soon. Well you heard it here I guess I callan Rosenblatt is a youth internet culture reporter for NBC News Dot Com and Graham Webster is the editor of the digit China Project at the Stanford? University Cyber Policy Center and he's also a fellow

And without the lease the tenant doesn't have the value what we're sort of in a certain way the lease we make it possible to have this great success, tick toxic tremendous success, but a big portion of its in this country. Sale? Yeah. Whatever the number is, would it would come from the civil on Wall Street banker problems. By the way they call that tipping the waiter, but I don't think we've ever tipped the government for transaction president trump said he told Microsoft's CEO that a very substantial portion of the price is going to have to come into the treasury of the United States because quote or making it possible for this deal to happen I was on the phone by the way with. The people involved in this transaction deal teams on all sides who heard that yesterday. Couldn't really even make. Heads or tails of what the president was saying how. Would you hey the government what would that look like could there be a formulation where ultimately you come to some kind of transactional agreement and then you announce that you're making some kind of infrastructure investment in the in the United States who you're going to create some kind of jobs I'm literally, this is the conversation that's happening inside the room among these companies. If we created some companies without yesterday we got to it. It's what did you say? I. Heard it reported yesterday when I first started reporter yesterday I thought he's just saying this stuff off the cuff he doesn't really mean it. Then I saw what he actually said I thought wow, he does mean it. I don't even know how you could possibly as somebody WHO's working on this deal come up with anything that makes any sense and Steve Ballmer Steve Balmer was with us yesterday and said as a shareholder as the top shareholder Microsoft he would love to see this deal get done at the right price. Gets an exciting proposition for Microsoft. obviously depends on the price. Price is important as well as whatever restrictions come from a government perspective but I think it's an exciting avenue for Microsoft to really increase its consumer base. I don't know how you figure out any sort of pricing right pricing when you have to then go in and add some significant number on top that you'd be paying to the US Treasury. Well, what are they? Going to happen is because this is a bit of evaluation game. And I hate to say, we're going to be using trump valuation but I think that what's going to happen is they're going to effectively. Create a higher valuation for the overall business. Then kind of create something where they can say we're giving you something and that bite dance is giving it. That's the other important part of the view at least from what I understand Turnley among these groups is that the money has to come out of China not out of a US company. So you're going to have to make it appear whatever that whatever it is that you're giving to appear that China's not getting part of that's because Peter Navarro and others don't frankly want US money. Ten twenty thirty billion forty billion dollars ending up in the hands of China for the. So there's so many sort of China. has already weighed in. On this today that China has weighed in on this today through some of the states that media where they are saying that you know the US is basically stealing us and trying to do take off with this that it's a rogue nation now at this point. So the idea that you are going to come up with something that satisfies the trump administration and at the same time satisfies the communist government in China Good luck with that I mean this is they're going to get caught in between the two the two with this because even though China may not. Necessarily, be looking for some of the same angles. It's not going to say, okay, it's okay for the US to come out looking like this and stealing our company and don't worry about it. CEO of Tiktok you know or bite dance don't worry about it. We'll live with that sort of a kind of a slap in the face. To all this stuff we're talking about it. Sorry Andrew it. It overshadows the the lead of the story right and that's that there are possibly other suitors for the US. Of tiktok, we we we talked yesterday Andrew about well, maybe media companies would be interested in this property. Now, you know the the wording here that that we use her that Eunice was reporting was other tech offense, which which makes it even more interesting and who these other tech companies. May Be an at. Are they based in the US or are they elsewhere? It would be very I. I would imagine it would be very hard for Google or Amazon or an apple etc to try to buy this company given the anti-trust pressures on them, I. Think my understanding was that the White House preferred that liked the Microsoft choice from a regulatory perspective. So it's all very interesting by the way the other piece of this is the part I. Really don't understand if you're apple today, you know we're talking about this two trillion dollars market cap that keeps going up and up and up. Given. Given. The China risks now now, maybe look they foxconn supplying hundreds of thousands of people if not more than are making these phone so maybe they can't just say to Tim. Cook. Good luck to you but I would think there would be risk if we do this to a Tiktok what kind of a backlash reciprocal. Backlash is China going to have for some US companies doing business there? That's the part I don't understand say knock built into any of the. It it's it's no different than the same conversations we were having during the depths of the trade war. Right? We had these same conversations. We push too hard if the tariffs are to punitive companies are companies like apple, the ones that are going to face the pushback or the retaliation in some way and I think it's fair to say that that that never really came back to these two tech companies I mean, she didn't say where those tech companies were based and and I wonder what the US would do that if if it was being pursued by a company, another technology company based in China but not based in the United States either how would Sylvia's see something like that and would they still threaten to turn off the the APP in the United States if it was not a US company?

Possible VP Pick Susan Rice Says She Can Handle Pandemic
"Rice is one of a handful of women on Joe Biden's short list for a running mate. She told us she is the right fit for the job. Yes, I think I could bring my experience of almost now. 20 years in the senior levels of the executive branch to bear to help tackle the most pressing problems we face. And while this would be the first time she would campaign for herself Ambassador Reiss told our co host Steve Inskeep that she's ready for him. Regardless of your experience in government, a big part of the vice presidency or seeking the vice presidency is campaigning, of course, which is not something that you've had a lot of experience doing. Do you have any eagerness to to campaign? Well, Steve. Yes, I've not run for office on my own behalf, but I've run for office on other people's behalf, where I did actually quite a bit of retail politics and speaking to groups of people. But I think unfortunately, in the current context with the pandemic, this will be quite an unusual campaign. If you were in office, you would face the fundamental problem of trust in government or lack of trust in government that is playing out. Now, Many people are refusing to wear facemasks. It seems evident from surveys that many people would think the same way about a vaccine once it's available. What would you do about that? Well, I think that's a huge challenge. And we have had vaccines many in many stages in our history. Still, today, Children need certain vaccines to be able to go to school. And I think that we're gonna have to take a similar approach that you know for kids to be able to go back to school and in Whatever jurisdiction they ought to be vaccinated and the localities ought to consider also requiring the people in the household with the Children to be vaccinated for the very reason that's obvious that this is You know, something that affects the entirety of the community. I want to ask about a couple of foreign policy problems that any administration would face on January 20th 2021 1 of them is deteriorating U. S relations with China. Now I know you've been critical of the way that President Trump is approached China. But at the same time, there are foreign policy experts across the spectrum, who said China's a problem? We don't know how to confront China. Maybe it's time for a confrontation with China. Would you want to roll back U. S relations with China to the way they were in 2016? Steve. No. I don't think you can roll back the clock on any critical issue to 2016. The world has changed and we have to deal with the world as it is. But having said that my criticism is Based predominantly on the fact that we have approached the challenge the China poses economically and strategically in isolation rather than in partnership with our allies in Asia and Europe. You know, instead of, for example, approaching our concerns about trade and economic policy, collectively with our European and Asian partners, who share many of those same concerns, and who Joining with us could add to our collective pressure on China to change its policies and approaches. We started separate trade battles with our closest allies. If you've got more partners behind you, is there some value in a confrontation with China? Well, if by confrontation you mean is it smart for us to start a hot war? I think absolutely not. No. But what about in other ways, diplomatically or otherwise? Well, diplomatically. Sure. First. What we don't need to seek confrontation for its own sake. We need to be strong and smart in how we compete with China. And push back on China's policies on the economic and the security front that threaten our interests. We also should be speaking up vocally and and forcefully about China's egregious human rights abuses from How it treats the Uighurs to the people of Hong Kong. It's common to say that a lot of the divisions of the last few years are merely highlighting what was already there. You could say that President Trump talks the way that a lot of Americans talk and believes what a lot of Americans believe, which is why millions of people voted for him. For example, it is often said that the pandemic Has struck the most vulnerable communities because they were vulnerable over a long period of time that we're just having American society exposed in a different way. Do you believe that? Well, I believe that What the pandemic has done is show how much disparity there is among Americans from a socioeconomic point of view and to a large extent of racial and ethnic point of view, And you know if it wasn't obvious to people before it, it ought to be now. But I don't think that that is the same thing is the first part of your question, which is To suggest that you know, all Donald Trump has done is shined a spotlight on some of the underbelly of our society. I don't think that's right. I think Americans at the end of the day Are not people who like to hate and to fear one another. Do you feel that you understand the roughly 40% of Americans who approve of the job the president is doing. I do think I have a good understanding. Maybe not a perfect understanding in part, Steve, because, as I write in my book, I have a 23 year old son whom I love dearly, whose politics are very, very different from my own, and from the rest of our family. Talk more about that. What are his politics? Ah, you know, I have a very conservative son in a very progressive daughter. They're both wonderful, intelligent. Passionate, committed kids. My son and I will have some robust disagreements are over some matters of policy. Not all. And yet at the end of the day. I love him dearly, and he loves me. As there have been an issue where he is almost persuaded you that maybe you're wrong. Yeah, I'm sure. I'm sure there is And you know the thing is, and I read about this in in the book. In the last chapter. I write about the areas where we agree. And the areas where we disagree, So we agree, for example. On the importance of the United States, playing a responsible principle leadership role in the world. We agree on the importance of having strong alliances. You know, we disagree. On things like, Ah, choice. I'm pro choice. He's pro life. That's the kind of difference that we oughta be able to respect. Ambassador Susan Rice. It's a pleasure to talk with. Thank you, Steve
Students for Life activists arrested for defacing Black Lives Matter mural
"Joining us right now, Kristen Hawkins, who is president of students for life. Of America and Kristin to ofyour activists were arrested this past weekend. Right here in Washington. D C. Good morning. Why were they arrested? Good morning. Thanks for having me today. Yeah, we What? Out Saturday. It was national pro life generation sidewalks. So we had students across the country going to Planned Parenthood. Another abortion, silly, praying counsel women. Our team went out there to paint the street to say black, pre born lives matter. We had written the mayor sensor there had painted the streets of the seed black lives matter and allow the group of asked for this. Add on her paintings to say deep on the police, and she allowed him to do that, with how the formal on to do with permanently we had written, the mayor asked her to allow us the same light as she allowed the other activists. We have spoken with them done on that perm it the police called us NASA's issues. Temporary paint, which we complied with. We've got out there for him on Saturday and had six squad cars waiting for threatening the rest. If you are To attempt to put anything on the street. So being activists we have a backup plan it sidewalk chalk with us. We do this all the time. One of our team members Warner, who actually counted upon the pregnancy there every Saturday and sidewalk chalk every single Saturday. Began to sidewalk chalk, black reborn lives matter in front of the planned Parenthood on the sidewalk. Not on the street. Ah, one with one eye open university, Erica Catelyn, and the police arrested them for simply sidewalk, chalking and I want to make sure I understand this correctly. You did ask for a Permit. It sounds like it was granted you then here to what they told you to do, which is used temporary paint, and it sounds based on you applying for that permit that the police knew in advance when you were going to be there, And when you plan to paint this is that how they knew you were going to be there and with it already predetermined. Do you think by the police that they plan to arrest you? If you did anything to the sidewalk, including writing black black lives matter, even if it was done in shock. Umm Yeah, we had written their advance of getting the permit telling her, you know, we we know you have opened the streets up now to public expression. You can't discriminate based on you know what messages painted in the streets. We would like you to extend us the same rights and we gave her deadline and we said we're going to be out there Saturday. All his first and father planned parent heart. If you do not respond, we will take that as acceptance that you know what we're doing. And in fact, her office the mayor's office, I contacted D C special events office who then contacted our team. We got a permit to assemble because you have to have a permit. We had to have a committee. Cirio assemble. 50 people are under wearing masks, social distancing. We've got that permit. The police officers called us asked us to please use temporary paint, which we complied with. But that's how they knew where we could be out there on and we got pretty loud and clear the mayor's answers when she had six Claude cars leading for us, and when we asked the police officers on the scene You know who they were Reporting to who? Their boss wise thie officer in charge directly responded the mayor. Amazing. Amazing, So they just used your attempts to be good citizens as in as a road map to find you and then to eventually arrest your activists in all of this, Kristen, you know, One thing that really sticks out to me is the disparate treatment that your group has received, as when it comes to free expression in the district. So you mentioned it before. But it bears repeating right next to the mural that Miria ll Bowser authorized, which was defunded mystery, which was black Lives matter. She's put it right in front of the White House in giant letters, activist Black lives matter. Activists came in and added, defund the police of their own accord. They they did that without a permit. They just put it right next to the black lives matter, and they put it in permanent paint on the ground immediately in front of the White House. Rather than punish those people. Miriam Bastard gave them the OK after it was over. Those words are still painted on the ground right now in front of the White House and have been for the last month or two. Meanwhile, you're activists used shock on the sidewalk and were arrested. It's starting to sound like you have grounds for a lawsuit. Are you going to file one? Absolutely. This is clear viewpoint discrimination. Our team has been flooded with requests for legal aid groups have been coming in saying We will help you sue the city because this is a slam dunk. Constitutional First Amendment case, and we believe it is so we we have our own in house legal counsel that we work with. We were hiring criminal defense attorneys for morning Erica the two individuals who were arrested for sidewalk talking, and then we're also bringing on a team of lawyers who will be handling our First Amendment federal lawsuit against the city and the mayor. And Chris and I also want to ask about the message that you were sending out the message that was chalked, which is Moon black. Pre boy born lives matter. How has that message been received by people when you point out the fact that so many black Children are aborted in our country that I mean that's what's so sad. If you think about this case, while Warner and Erica are being arrested and being processed and book to Metro police Planned Parenthood on Saturday across the nation ended alive of 360 black Children. That is what they dio every single day for out of five Planned Parenthood locations are in walking distance from minority dense population. The abortion rate for black women is five times higher than white women. It is very clear that not only does planned Parenthood and now their own employees are admitting that Planned Parenthood has a racist past with their founder, Margaret Sanger, who was a genesis to believe that birth control and sterilization was a solution to a limiting what people she called human leads, but they also have a racist. Present and it needs to be addressed right now. This is an important conversation happening within our nation, and we want to add to that conversation would say absolutely black lives matter. The one you say black lives matter. We also mean lives that had not only been born, but lives are in the wounds are freeborn minds their lives that are about to be born, you know, or Children that are about to be born. You've got Kanye West in recent days talking about this is well, he tweeted just a couple days ago. Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years. I'm not sure of his numbers are right, but he definitely is getting to a real issue on DH. He also tweeted I cried at the thought of a boarding my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me. I'm concerned for the world that feels you shouldn't cry about this subject. What's your reaction to seeing Kanye West to come along and say, Yeah, this is a real issue. Yeah. I mean, I think this is a very raw and emotional issue for so many Americans. I think it is so sad to see. So I watched, you know, Campaign speech in South Carolina. He broke down, crying, talking about how he himself was almost aborted by his mother on then how this discussion happened with his firstborn child, whether or not to abort her and end her life. I think that resonated with millions of Americans. I mean, I meet people all the time you say I was on the operating table and I gotta walk out. I don't know why I do I You know, I didn't have the money. I was scared to death. But I just knew I couldn't have the abortion. And no day goes by that. I'm not grateful for making that. Choice for life, so I think what it was so well. It was so emotional. I think it regulated with so many Americans. Why do you think it's very sad? I was really something in Hollywood. You know articles about what car long with Connie West? Yes, Conquest is crazy and one I think we need to be very careful about how we label people crazy. This mental health in a very real concern in our names, and we shouldn't be labeling people who may have been, you know. Late diagnosis by Paul Alors crazy and it's okay. And it's okay to admit that some people have it. Thank you, Cristian. Sorry. Just cause we're out of time. But it is okay to stay. Some people have it right on some issues and wrong on others. He's completely right on the issue of
My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better.

"Hey, there a warning before I. Start Today Show. We're GONNA. Be Talking about some pretty heavy topics. Today will be talking about mental health anxiety depression. And surviving suicide. Parental discretion is advised. In twenty, nine, thousand, nine, nearly eight, hundred, thousand people died of suicide. means, every forty seconds someone was taking their own life. And, suicide is a global phenomenon in certainly their populations, certain people, certain experiences that place. You at greater risk of suicide. But for every person who dies from suicide, it's estimated that there's another twenty. Who attempted suicide? That means for every one person who dies of suicide. There are twenty people who survive it. But death by suicide and suicide attempts are preventable. Now, that is not to say that you. You alone can prevent someone. From taking their own life or from even trying. But. It does mean that we've got to start having these conversations more openly. We've got to remove the stigma. GotTa be able to know the sign so that there's something we can do so that we can intervene. So today because of the pandemic, because of racial tensions because of the world that we live in today, suicide rates are higher than ever. Now, I've heard reports that suicides are up nearly two hundred percent so far in twenty twenty and I did my best to substantiate those statistics. Night can't tell you. I can substantiate the number of suicides is that much higher wouldn't surprise me. I just can't substantiate it when I can tell you is that Google searches Calls to suicide prevention lines and visits to online support groups are up more than two hundred percent since the lockdown began. You should also know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. In fact, I WANNA lead with some really powerful statistics so that you'll begin to think about this, not just in terms of you or your family members. But your neighbors, your parents, your grandparents, your nieces, or nephews every day. The CDC estimates about one, hundred, twenty, three people die from suicide, and that was in twenty nineteen. It's also estimated that only half of Americans who are experiencing some form of depression or anxiety ever seek treatment. But did you know that between eighty to ninety percent of people who do seek treatment for depression or anxiety find success by using therapist and or a medical intervention? Did you hear that like eighty to ninety percent feel better? An estimated quarter? Million People? Every year are survivors of suicide attempt. In previous years, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the world for people ages fifteen to twenty, four today, it's the number one leading cause of death. And although more females than males attempt suicide. represent. Seventy, nine percent. Of, all suicides in the United, states? Firearms being their most commonly used method and for females. The most commonly used method is overdose poison if you will. Now, let's talk about who is at greatest risk I. It is our LGBTQ plus community. There are three times, more likely special kids, three times more likely than straight kid to attempt suicide Oh nps if you have a sneaking suspicion that your kid might. Be Gay. Bi. Trans. Trust me just accept them and love them if you don't. They feel that. They know that don't assume your Keta straight is what I'm trying to say kids who worry about what their parents and society might think are three times more likely. To commit suicide forty-one percent of trans, adults that they've attempted suicide and the same study found that almost sixty one percent of trans people who were also victims of some form of assault sixty. One percent of those people have attempted suicide because get this lesbian gay and bisexual young adults who come from families where either the belief the notion, the sentiment was that they would be rejected because of their sexuality. Those kids are eight times more likely to commit suicide. Then, children who come from families where they feel very accepted. Each time and lgbtq person is of victim of any type of harassment or abuse that increases their risk of self harm by almost three hundred percent. Those are some of the most at risk populations, the elderly, also a very high risk population. What do I have delivered for I? Don't WANNA be a burden to my children. There's nothing for me to look forward to. Black talk about risk factors regardless of population demographic. The WanNa be on the lookout for these risk factors. Place people at a much higher likelihood of attempting suicide, any previous known or unknown or diagnosed mental disorder. Especially mood disorders, schizophrenia bipolar ast, which is autism spectrum disorder autism, any anxiety disorder, and certain personality disorders. Those who regularly use substances, like you know, drugs, alcohol painkillers, people who tend to be more impulsive or aggressive anyone with a history of trauma, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse people who are experiencing a major physical disability setback, chronic illness, those with a family history of suicide, those who have a close friend or relative committed suicide anyone who's in recent job or financial distress. Those, who recently lost a relationship at greater risk for suicide is anyone who's being isolated or who lacks their peers social support?
Bored and Uninspired? How to Get Unstuck and Motivated.
"Hey sober sellers. It's Lynn. Peachtree. City and today I am feeling man. I just came off two days of celebrating my sober bursaries. If you didn't listen to last week's PODCAST I. Kinda celebrate today's the day. I went into treatment were was still a little drunk and then the day after where I was freer of. The chemicals in my body, and now I'm coming up on Friday. This is Wednesday and on Friday I turn fifty six. So this often happens to me although not unlike most of you I think I'm having some difficulties in figuring out how I feel during the time of the COVID. So I'm going to share some of those feelings that I just started. Thinking about this morning with you here on the podcast guided by what I like to look at when I'm feeling stock and uninspired, and what that means for me when I do feel stuck if I'm thinking more deeply about it and possibly what it could mean to you. So fifty six years is not a short time on the planet, but I sometimes feel as if I've only lived for ten years kind of wider awake. So the patterns that I've developed in my life sure, I can go and take some looks sees back into my twenties and find patterns like I'm seeing today, but they're so much more profound now that I don't dowse myself with alcohol every single day. One of the biggest realizations is for me, I tend to get really bored. Three years of living a certain way whether it's in a certain place or doing a certain thing. But I really see this in myself and not to say, of course, I don't love what I do or love where I'm at. But I start to get a little wonky on the inside and I'm definitely going through one of those phases. I lived in Peachtree city for over three years. I've been doing sober. So recovery and Lynn Matic counseling for Awhile and I'm getting an inch. Not to mention I think a lot of us are feeling really bored because of COVID and I say board with a capital, B. Because we. Have really dug deep into puzzles and artwork and getting creative and yeah. Once again, my guitar sitting out in my living room, probably need to sell that one too because I'm not playing at ultimately, the drive is to get something coming in to our systems something new as I was waking up this morning I. Know I've felt a profound sense of loneliness. In probably the last four months more intensely. I miss being hugged. I. Have Said Numerous Times on the PODCAST and I'm an introvert that doesn't mean, I. Don't go out and get me some hugs every week. Just the tactile stuff that were used to a client and I were discussing this week. How we Miss Window shopping just go into TJ, maxx or wherever you have access to a lot of shopping and walking around uninhibited. Really Kinda just wasting time, but it was meaningful for me and this client that I was talking to I, don't know if that's something that you miss as well or other. Other things sped sure enough. We can't do even those things that we may have not done a lot of pre covid. We don't have a choice anymore. So this intense lonely feeling was coming over me and I couldn't quite figure out why I'm still seeing friends although I think in the last couple of weeks I've shown some signs of loneliness where I'm like, you know turning down those opportunities to be with people a little bit more which was kind of assigned to me that I might need some introspection really diving deeper into why I feel this. Stuck nece especially because I tend to enjoy the more mundane aspects of life I like to sleep I, like to rest I like good food I. Like just time. Things are teaching in me. So I wanted to get to the bottom of or at least somewhere near the bottom of why to take you through how this goes in my a little crazy brain. This morning as I was noodling this idea of what I wanted to talk about I started to I look at loneliness, and of course, type it in Cova with that while I'm googling. Up came tons of articles, mostly by the way from like march through may about how to deal and cope with loneliness in the time of covid. I read those back in March and May, and feel like I've done a lot of those things I've kept up on my connections via text and phone and Zoom I've you know gotten more involved in some groups on social media, I've reconnected to some of those healthier things romy and eating better whereas you know in the beginning I was kind of Etienne love ice cream. And I'm really worked to try and figure out how I can make it through these months of
Vita Coco: Michael Kirban
"Remember that kid in high school who was weirdly interested in business who had almost no interest in going to college or starting a traditional career, but was determined to start something on their own. You might have snickered about them or even ruled your eyes or maybe that kid was you. Well, that kid was also Michael. Kurban. Michael had the benefit of watching his dad pursue a bunch of different business ideas including ideas that failed but the specter failure never worried him. He knew from a very early age that it's part of the game that you gotta take big swings, which means you will also strike out a lot. And the biggest swing Michael would take would be for Vita. Coco you've probably seen their familiar Tetra Pak boxes of coconut water in pretty much every convenience store. In the early two thousands when Michael was trying to launch the brand New York City, he was pretty confident that coconut water would take off at the time most people who bought coconut water were immigrants from places like Vietnam India, the Caribbean and Latin America. But Michael had a hunch that coconut water could compete with sports drinks like gatorade. Now. At the exact same moment someone else had these same exact hunch. It would become a product known as Zico and so what happened and what you will hear is a story about a war, the coconut water wars of the early two thousands a war was sabotaged subterfuge dirty tricks, and eventually a pretty decent outcome for both parties. Today by COCO is the biggest brand of coconut water in the US. It has about forty percent market share but it would take a lot of time and a lot of obstacles to get there. Michel grew up in Connecticut and when he was nine his parents split up it was amicable. But while Michael, sister chose to live with their mom Michael Decide to stay with their dad. My Mom Got Custody I. Think my dad gave my mom custody and my dad was actually packing his things and preparing to leave the house and I packed my snoopy suitcase. Put It with all my dad's stuff and I remember my mom coming home and saying what's this and I said I'm moving in with dad she said. Okay Wow that's amazing. My mom ended up a few years later ended up moving into New York City so I'd spend weekends and city you know, and I still see her quite a bit but. Super Close with my dad. What did your parents do? When you were a kid. As a kid my dad was entrepreneur. My Dad always had businesses before him. My grandfather always had different businesses my grandfather same thing. So. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs I don't think there's a single male in my family who's graduated from college on both sides and. My Dad when I was young had a roller skating rink. which was awesome. In. Those were the successful days and then he had other businesses that weren't so successful and we went through periods of doing well and other periods of not doing so well and were those. Birthday party I had roller skating birthday party and four remember birthday parties and Church groups and youth group of and stuff like that. Happened there. Everybody I went to school with as a kid had their birthday party at the roller skating ring. So so good. So I got to go to all the parties whether I was invited or not. Yeah, and then as rollerskating kind of out and was now we'll thing anymore he turned the place into a rap concert hall. So I grew up one of twelve thirteen years old hanging out with beastie boys ll cool J. Kid it was really really cool experience. So he really pivoted because thinking that what happened roller skating it was great. It was like one day was there and then it was gone. Yeah it was a real fat. People stopped going and he pivoted very quickly and you know that works for a little bit of time and then just didn't work anymore. So in terms of school, how how was it for you? Was it hard was it easy where you good student? Not a good student school was really tough. I had several learning disabilities from attention deficit disorder to form of Dyslexia as I got into high school they. Me and by diagnosing me, they put me in what we used to refer to as Romper. Room. which was. Half the day in normal classes and half the day in basically special ed it was a room with me and other kids who. Many of which had more complicated issues than I had. I knew I was very late in reading and math was really hard for me and I had a clear goal and that goal was to get cs and. Get as close to passing as possible. And that was always the objective and I always knew that would be successful in whatever I did. But why did you know that? I don't know I just felt because even then right even though I was in these classrooms I was still. Successful in things that I wanted to do you know I was not the best athlete but I worked hard and you know I was able to. Play ball and it wasn't the best. I definitely wasn't a good student but I was able to get by and I, just I just had this confidence from an early
Hurting for Money
"Hi, guys well from Beautiful Salt Lake City Utah. It's thank God I'm atheist the podcast I'd Frank Feldman and I'm Dan Beecher and coming up on the show today. Dan. Giving out money. Just. Thrown around. Making it rain. I WISH I mean they're doing that for some. I don't know my my my. GIG economy unemployment insurance is is winding down and I don't think I'm going to get any more. So Oh, I'm not excited. About that. But no, I know the the yet the government has found a very worthy repository. For a bunch of our money, our tax money, and let me tell you dear listener. You Ain't GonNa like it. Yeah. Yeah. Not Not a good look. We'll be getting to that. But in the meantime, Dan? Yeah. There's some new psychological research Dan. Okay, that seeks to. Link, atheism. To something and I wanna I wanna I I'm curious. To hear your response. because. Is. It is it. Is it linking. Atheism STD's because that just because we're all sluts. No. In fact to. Emotional suppression. Oh Oh. Oh. Yeah. I duNNo. I feel about that. This is what I'm saying. They did. They did this research on a group of one thousand, fifty, nine undergraduate psychology students. Surveyed them right and they about their religious beliefs and had them complete an assessment of their emotion regulation tendencies, right? Okay. and so about half the participants. Were Christian thirty percent agnostic or non religious fifteen percent identified as atheist and. The remainder was A mix of Muslims Hindus Buddhists Jewish. And then apparently a smattering of others. But Yeah. So what they found is that the self identified atheists. were. More likely to report engaging in emotional suppression meaning. They were more likely to agree with statements like when I am feeling positive emotions I am careful not to express them. K which which is interesting They also took eight atheists an eight religiously affiliated undergraduates They were recorded. As they described a recent experience that made them feel frustrated or annoyed. And a recent experience that made them feel happy or joyful and. A hundred undergraduates watch those videos, right? Okay and they they watched it with audio turned off. And they they re they raided the speakers emotional expressive, nece, their trustworthiness, and they're like ability. Okay and they just based on on seeing them not here. Just watching them talk and tell the story that was an emotional story. Right. Interesting And they had absolutely no idea about which speaker was atheist or Catholic or whatever. And they found that the the atheist were seen as less emotionally expressive on average when compared to the religiously affiliated individuals. Interest. And so they say, let's see this is the researcher. Speaking says compared to non, atheist. which includes acknowledged sticks and the nonreligious as well as believers atheists are not more likely to manage their emotions by thinking differently about situation that was one of the I'm sorry there was this other thing where they. Tried to assess. After, you've had an emotional experience like. Do you try to reassess the emotional the emotions that you felt and the how strong those emotions were right. And so you're saying that the atheists are not more likely to manage their emotions by thinking differently about situations atheists are more likely to resist expressing their emotions however and people. Noticed this even if they don't know someone is an atheist.
Tricia Lewis from Recovery Happy Hour Podcast
"So, I think maybe you guys may have heard of today's gassed. I mean you might know her from this podcast might be a little popular. I am so stoked to welcome Tricia Lewis onto addiction unlimited today. I'm so excited to have you here this so fine. Thank you so much for having me. It's so crazy to be on this side of the Mike Yeah Right. I've been in the middle of a launch and like doing all of these solo. Recording so much by myself. It feels a little weird. To be interviewing again on. Yeah, it's I. Never share my story on the show. I just like to share it. Help. People share their story, so it's rare that I get to talk about myself, yes. I get. So. Let's start with that. Why don't you tell the listeners a little bit about yourself who you are what you do and all that good stuff? Yeah, my name's Tricia Lewis and I host a podcast called recovery happy hour, and it's about its second birthday so it's it's going strong, and it's one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. And I hosted a little event last year called sober by South West with my partner in that Endeavor Kris Marshall. And I got sober in twenty sixteen, so recovery has been a big part of my world for almost four years now. Nice I love that you love your podcast, too, because it is truly one of the pieces of my career that I'm the most proud of it's one of the things, absolutely the most proud of and I just turned two in April Yeah, we started right around the same time yet which I didn't realize until I talked to you when I was on your show, I knew realize that I think because I saw you so much on social media I just made the assumption that you had been around way longer. We'll happy birthday by the way if you celebrated too happy. Second Birthday to you. I just had my regular birthday, too. I just turned forty eight. We'll happy birthday twice. Them up today. That doesn't an interesting journey. Okay, so tell me what made you want to start a podcast? Like what was that thought process for you in your sobriety. That urged you to do that well. I started when I had been sober for two years sober. Something like that and. I was in a facebook accountability group, and with you know Gosh three hundred people, and there's a lot of newcomers in there, and at that point having two years felt like to some people, and and so I was just giving basic advice at anybody would give to their fellow person who's struggling and people kept saying well. When are you going to write the Book GonNa write a book I guess they liked what I had to say and to be honest I. Don't have the discipline to be a writer I'm so envious of people that do and I was like well. What's the best way for me to sort of you know? Give back and. and. Be of service. That doesn't involve writing, so it was a podcast that was that was what I wanted to do, and you know the thing about podcast. Is that so many of them are stories of what it's like? When somebody's drinking which serves a purpose, but I wanted to talk about. It's kind of like you know. I wanted to talk about what happens after what happens once you get sober and you're living your life without alcohol. What's next and so those are the stories that I focus on and You know everyone that comes on the show has to have at least a year of sobriety so that we've got enough to talk about. Yeah Yeah, I love that, too, because it is like I feel like the drunk part of the story is the least interesting part you know. What anyway, because so many of us do the same things Parts of our stories are similar. Some people drank worse than others of course. I definitely had more legal trouble than along. But I think you and I can both agree. The those stories are important, but then after a while you get kind of tired of them, and you want to hear something new. which again is another reason why? I don't really share my story on the podcast? It's not because I'm hiding. Anything is just because it's just not that interesting to me, yeah! Yeah, the recovery part's Res Way more interesting the is, it's been more fun really, and this is something. We've been talking about a lie in my facebook group in my membership site. Like Fun In sobriety. And what is

"Group backs fiction. After peddler published his article, the Pulitzer Prize, winning journalist began criticizing executives of the powerful hearst corporation, which owned and controlled almost thirty different newspapers in America at the time. Di suggested the peddler founded outrageous that no hearst publications were covering the meetings for his trouble. Peddler was fired. Perhaps peg dismissal is my several decades. After his article, it was still rare to find any mention of the Bilderberg meetings in newspapers. Perhaps, other journalists filled that they too would suffer the same fate. Things changed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five. When big Jim Tucker a journalist who worked for fringe right publication. The spotlight discovered the group. After some digging? Tucker Group SAST with the annual secret meetings. He wrote numerous articles about them for the spotlight. In, one such article Tucker wrote if one hundred forty of the world's best known baseball, players or movie stars gathered secretly under armed, guard every major newspaper and magazine would be demanding to know what was going on behind closed doors, but when one hundred forty of the world's richest `financiers, industrialists, media, Titans, and political figures get together under such circumstances, none of the journalists who posture as cynics dares to mention a word. Despite his passion for the subject matter, Tucker's articles didn't push awareness of the Bilderberg group into the mainstream. However, readers of his niche publication began asking the same questions he was lamely. What were these people discussing? And why did they insist on absolute secrecy? The dearth of information about the secret of group of elites caused rumors and conspiracy theories to abound. People on the political left accused the Bilderberg group of plotting to create an evil capitalist empire. People on the right suspected them of scheming towards a controlling socialist nanny state, these partisan hypotheses might have made up the sum total of Bilderberg Literature, but in nineteen ninety nine journalist Jon Ronson jumped into the Fray Ronson decided to look into the Bilderberg conference after several of the people you interviewed brought it up. He had no idea that in pursuit for the truth, he would fall under the gaze of the mysterious and possibly dangerous. Coming up Ronson the Bilderberg. Group's hired goons now back to the story. After, several years of what seemed like a coordinated lack of coverage of few journalists started writing about the Bilderberg meetings and big Jim Tucker a writer at a small conservative publication called the spotlight garnered wider attention in nineteen, seventy five. This was essentially how the Bilderberg meetings came onto the radar of thirty two year old British journalist Jon. Ronson in the course of his work. People who were familiar with Tucker's articles kept bringing up the Bilderberg group. In his book them adventures with extremists Ronson wrote that he was skeptical, a tiny band of insidious and clandestine power mongers who met in a secret room from which they ruled the world. Despite his doubts. Ronson was curious in nineteen, ninety, nine big Jim Tucker was the closest thing to an authority on the subject so Ronson decided to pay him a visit. In May Ronson met sixty five year old Tucker for the first time at the National Press Club in Washington DC big. Jim was a chain smoking gravel voiced mountain of a man during the meeting as Ronson watched big Jim picked up the phone and said mother. Your dutiful son is playing. Kick the can on Pennsylvania Avenue Tuesday morning. Ten thirty am thank you. When Ronson asked about the strange call. Big Jim explained that he needed to place the call to a friend on a daily basis to prove that he was still alive, after all he'd been on the trail of the Bilderberg group for two decades. There was no telling when they kill him for his trouble making his death look like a run of the mill DC mugging. After that alarming statement big Jim, cheerfully suggested they take a break. Over drinks big Jim told Ronson that he knew exactly where that year's Bilderberg group meeting set to take place even more exciting. He planned to infiltrate the proceedings and Ronson was more than welcome to tag along. His plan was as follows. He and Ronson would travel to Portugal on arrival. They'd patrol the hotel resort until they figured out a way to break in. When a skeptical Ronson, asked exactly how they were supposed to break into a famously penetrable meeting big. Jim gave a vague answer about looking for the short wall and shimmying up drainpipes. He seemed to think that the specificities didn't matter. They figure it out once. They got center Portugal that June. Upon arriving in Sintra Bing Jim told Ronson that. The BILDERBERG group had sent their security guards ahead of them. According to him, these guards were already at the Caesar. Park Hotel where over one hundred of the world's most powerful elites would soon descend. Then big Jim told Ronson that Bilderberg private security had a shoot to kill policy for all interlopers. After that disclosure, he immediately suggested they head over to the Caesar. Park Hotel to scope it out, he posited that getting the lay of the land they could return later and break into the hotel to that end Ronson rented a car from budget and the to set off down a mountain road their destination this Caesar Park Hotel. The way to the hotel. They came up with cover stories. In case, they were found out. Big Jim suggested they pretend to be holiday. Goers bear to take in the fresh air. Though Ronson didn't think the Holiday Gore. Gambit seemed plausible. Couldn't come up with anything better, so he agreed. Soon the to pulled up outside the Caesar Park Hotels Formidable Peach. Gates at the site of the dense undergrowth and imposing mountain, surrounding the structure Ronson was struck with how impossible there are called midnight penetration was going to be. However it appeared that the Bilderberg group had yet to set up their security barricade. The two were able to drive into the hotel. Once they were within the Caesar Park Compound Big Jim took one look at all the happy hotel goers milling around and said the civilians haven't been shifted out yet. He took a picture of the oblivious tourists then big. Jim suggested the to grab lunch at the hotel's restaurant. They're big. Jim Tried to pump away transfer information about the supposed upcoming Bilderberg meeting, but the waitress seemed to have no clue what he was talking about Ronson was likely skeptical that enough various meeting was set to take place in such an innocuous setting. Setting regardless, he didn't resist when big Jim suggested. They split up to see what Intel they could separately gleam from inside the hotel itself after walking around on his own for a little bit..

"And eminent public figures. Unfortunately, the participants names have never been published despite the presence of so many supposed titans of Industry and leaders of nations, the atmosphere inside the conference was allegedly tense, but Prince. Barnard's good humor apparently eased some of the nervous tension. The specificities discussion are unclear. However, we know each speaker was allowed. Only five minutes at a time read injured later wrote that this fostered lively and stimulating debate with several attendees, jumping in at the conclusion of each block of five minutes to interject their opinions at asides after three days at the hotel, several hours of meetings and many much-needed interludes of. Drinking together, the group's first meeting came to a close. The attendees were so pleased with the proceedings they decided to make it an annual event. In short order prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, was appointed the Chairman or the Organization and Yousef Register accepted the role of secretary. It's important to note that bear nerd and Redinger weren't chosen in a political election. They weren't the end result of any sort of democratic process day were elites handpicked by other elites, and of course they had the advantage of inviting every man who chose them to lead together retina and Prince Bernard made up the group's first steering committee, deciding who, among the world's elite would be invited to future meetings, and who would shape the direction of the world. Choosing the steering committee wasn't the only decision. The attendees made according to Bilderberg Group. What don't you know by William Myron Price, the group's desire to maintain secrecy was so great that they didn't even give themselves a name, although they never again met in Oester, beak, all subsequent meetings were simply referred to as Bilderberg meetings. There's been a lot of speculation about this initial insistence on secrecy, some people claim that the CIA was heavily involved in establishing and even funding the Bilderberg group. However, it's important to note that this rumor has never been corroborated. A point that is without dispute is the fact that during the first Bilderberg meeting redinger insisted it's strictly adhere to the Chatham. House rule. This code of conduct was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, seven by the UK's Royal Institute of International Affairs. It was often utilized in meetings in which sensitive information was discussed. The rules stipulated that meeting attendees were allowed to disclose what was said during meetings so long as they didn't divulge the identity of the speaker, the rule was designed so that public officials could speak honestly behind closed doors. The rationale was that if they didn't fear that their words might later be used against them, they'd be more forthcoming. The decision to utilize the Chatham House rule was one of the last retin jer made as secretary in nineteen sixty after a lifetime of adventures in politics. The seventy two year old died of lung cancer. After, Retinas Death, subsequent Bilderberg meetings were run largely like the first author, Myron price wrote that venues changed, but the meetings were always hosted at upmarket hotels and resorts in Europe or North America. The organizers also continued to insist on high level security to that end the hotels that hosted the conferences were always entirely cleared out of all other guests before the three day proceedings. As that didn't ensure their privacy enough. Security guards were posted at the entrance of each conference to make sure that no outsiders were allowed entry. This was likely because even in subsequent Bilderberg meetings, the attendees were as impressive as ever. Though the invite list fluctuated, they included royalty heads of state, industry, Titans and famous academics. Finally the meetings continue to utilize the Chatham. House rule. However over the years. The behavior of Bilderberg attendees began to exceed even that code of conduct the Chatham House rule stipulated that what was discussed in meetings could be shared so long as the identity of the speaker was kept a secret, however after the first Bilderberg meeting, attendees of subsequent conferences refuse to divulge anything at all. They kept both the content of these meetings as well as the identities of its attendees completely hidden. In addition meeting minutes. We're still strictly prohibited. This meant that though the rich and powerful gathered upscale heavily guarded hotels around the world once a year. No ordinary citizen had any idea what they were discussing. These were meetings where corporate executives were encouraged to discuss issues of great importance with world leaders further, the Chatham House rule guaranteed the content of these talks would never be disclosed. What then was to stop these industry representatives from pushing their special interests and specific agendas. What was to stop a CEO? Who's prophets were based on an inexpensive workforce from utilizing a Bilderberg meeting to push an anti labor agenda or an executive who's revenue stem from exploitation of natural resources from pressuring ahead of state to ease environmental laws. The possibilities for corruption and the prioritization of special interests over the public good were endless, and this cult of silence allowed Bilderberg attendees to hide a plethora of sins, if they so desired, but in nineteen fifty-six after three years of Bilderberg meetings, nobody in the media reported on these novel events. This media blackout sustained despite the fact that several Bilderberg attendees were heads of state and high ranking corporate executives underlaw. The have meant that they owed both constituents and shareholders alike some modicum of transparency by their actions. Arguably. These members were acting in their capacity as private citizens when they attended the conferences, but they likely wouldn't have been invited to the meetings at all. If not for their esteemed positions yet somehow build Berg's rule seemed to suggest that these potential compromises were necessary to ensure open dialogue. However even that suggestion raised questions, namely, why did Bilderberg attendees need absolute privacy to speak openly and honestly? Where people to assume that these CEOS and heads of state were dishonest in public. Regardless of the implications, one thing remains clear. The BILDERBERG steering committee has no intention of lifting the veil. It wasn't until four years after the first meeting that one journalist finally attempted to uncover what all Bilderberg attendees worked so hard to hide. In nineteen fifty seven Pulitzer winning columnist, Westbrook paddler wrote a little distributed article about the Bilderberg meeting in it, he said something very mysterious is going on when a strange assortment of arbiters of the economic and political fate of our Western world go into a secret huddle on an island of Brunswick, Georgia, and not a word gets into the popular press. Peddler disclosed that he learned about the meeting from a woman, who happen to accidentally stumble upon the hotel where it was taking place, the woman told him that the hotel had seen deserted at first class. However, when she commented upon the strange emptiness of the place, the hotels clerk responded that it had been alive with mysterious characters a few days earlier, and with the Secret Service and FBI to. According to conspiracy theorist mark dice in the Bilderberg.

The woman on the other end of the line gasped then in an urgent voice. She said listen Bilderberg is much bigger than we are. We're just a little embassy. Do you understand their way out of our league? Chill went up Bronson. Spine? What kind of group could strike fear in the heart of a representative of the British Empire.

"It's an avalanche but all of their state. They put their skis in a circle around the tent and they're all still standing up exactly the way they left them yeah so. I don't know I feel like an avalanche pretty clearly easy to yeah identify densify yeah because it's all the snow right down. I feel like he wouldn't even find the tent right. Who knows we'll get theories. Okay one of the students who found the campsite said that quote the tent was half torn down and covered with snow it was empty and all the groups belongings and shoes had been left behind and the worst of all is at the ten can had been sliced open with a knife from the inside had a couple of cuts on it and the searchers were like what the fuck so at the site of the fucked up ten and it was sliced just open right next to the zipper when was broke away because of his broken zipper decided the fucked up. There's and there's so much information so once this happened of course it's the Soviet Union. They put this into secret fucking files and don't let it come out into the nineties so a lot of this is speculation Asian. Maybe some of the facts aren't even right that we know of eight or nine cents. A footprints are found leaving the tent and they look like the footprints in the towel. Hell that whoever left are only wearing socks or single schumer barefoot and by the footprints. It looks like they're walking away not running. Oh and to me. This is the most fucked up part where like there's a couple of things in it that any theory you go if the these little pieces don't fit and then walking away doesn't fit to me. No you know I mean in your socks in the snow with no other footprint so it's not the you can't say someone like attacked act them yeah. It's just like you went to have a wander. Yeah it for no reason without your shoes in the snow. No so the searchers followed the footprints and it led back down towards that foresty area that they hadn't hadn't wanted to go to it's the the woods nearby and almost a mile to the northeast and at the forest edge under a large cedar tree the searchers found the remains of small fire and there they also found the the first of the two bodies yeary criven Chango Grandma Mischenko thank you who's twenty three and another a Yuri Dora Shaneco twenty one. They're both shoeless and dressed only in like they're under garments and you can see fucking photos of this online and the t the the temperatures are under like would have been under twenty five or thirty below thirty on the night of their death. So why did they walk out in there. fucking underwear rent the BR. There's a branch branch on a nearby tree that are broken all the way up to about sixteen feet high so suggesting maybe that one of the hikers climbed up to look around and see like where things the you know where his fucking people were whatever or we're trying to hide from someone up there on the tree. Yeah that's creepy right. Yes okay so between the forest and the camp they find three more bodies so it looked like they were trying to walk back towards the camp away from the forest. those bodies were that of dial diet that law. Zinaida Komo Gora who's twenty four and restroom slogan was twenty three and so they had fallen in such a way that seem that they were walking back towards the camp so like forward as a camp yeah and they had a little bit more close on the in the other two but not much and definitely flee not enough to be out in the cold so and this is a mile away from the tent so like it wasn't like they were running to take a piss. It's far yeah so while the circumstances were weird. Food cause of death was for all five hikers had been hypothermia so it wasn't a odd but not they didn't know why they walked out of their tent. The body showed no no indication of severe damage and it was just hypothermia and then it isn't until the other four bodies are found two months later. The story gets even weirder. I'm sorry but I love this. When I found the story I almost cried from like this is the kind of thing I wanna read for of the rest of my life. It also feels like the kind of thing whether it's American a hidden top secret files or Russian or any other country yet like there must be a million stories like this that we just don't know about that. It's like X. Files stuff where they show up and go okay lock this whole thing down when talking about this us whether it's military or fucking aliens or some kind of you know anything the Yeti the Yeti I will hold onto an argue with you the this listen tyra. I haven't at the very end so we can start fighting okay. 'cause I barely barely talk about it. I'm sorry so you'll have to tell everyone really become a yeti truth array at the shirts for sure I mean I'm just saying sixteen feet up in a tree. How are you up there. May Yetis the shoulders making Eddie great again okay so the four bought the rest of the bodies are found there finally found on May four so this is the beginning of February they had gone missing. Eh and they're found may fourth under thirteen feet of snow in a ravine almost two hundred and fifty feet further into the woods from where the others were found so it's almost like these guys are like we're staying put here in light of fire and climate tree for some reason these three were like we're. GonNa walk back to the tent and these other four like we're going deeper into the forest so like why right did they split up just off the top. More scared goes further into the forest. the the other brave ones are like you know at this is fine. Let's go get our shoes then they leave the people that are still near the fire. Here's something in Copenhagen tree to see what happened and then they had they die yet not okay but but I wonder if like for mountain climbers and for hikers and shit splitting up is now no like you know that you haven't so as walking in the snow with yeah no shoe enough right seems like did they get dose with acid. was there some key okay. No No. Let's talk about because there is a theory didn't didn't really talk about it much that the Lo- the local tribe the indigenous tribe to have the mushrooms but they like to fuck around with yeah and one of the things did they do is hang them from like socks from a tree. Oh so did they fucking climate tram eat those mushrooms and go absolutely shouldn't cut themselves out of the content yeah because alike. They are college students so they're they could be there to party like engineers students. You Know Engineer Party. The hardest Menelik make a Aradio drugs you actually that's an okay. We're not anymore. Yes okay uh-huh okay this the three of three of them had more close on the other hikers including some of the clothing that belonged to their dead friends meaning that possibly they died. I I and they took their clothes from them and so they knew their friends were fucking dead. How horrible is that. Let's go deeper into the forest and getting away from that area. That's right so their body. There were more questions when their bodies were examined. Three of the hijackers had fatal injuries including Nikolai feedthepig ebb break getting all this Ari Nikolai Apologize. He was twenty three He'd suffered significant skull damage that had led to his death breath so he had been hit in the head with something Ludmila Dubina who was twenty and Semion Zola Tara who it was thirty eight not bad right pretty good. My best was thirty eight. They had major chest fractures and the weird thing about these. These wounds wounds they had is there was no surface moon so it's not like someone took a hatchet or whatever like compression fraud yeah and and it was said that they could only be caused by immense. It's force comparable to that of a car crash or big foot or yeah a Russian baked or like you know. I wonder if like if you if you but it someone someone with a gun that probably tear skin eight I mean I don't know whether bruising but Stephen Stand up its charity charity trail so we're sending Stephen. This is the other contest one lucky listeners going with Stephen to the top of the dial diet law passed. Jim Work some theories out of of of so yeah so it's comparable to that of a car accident so it was like blunt. Force Hama had yeah so then how out in the middle all of nowhere while they're in a ravine so it's possible they fell but no one wants to believe that okay the most gruesome part of the dialogue pass incident is is for poor the banana she's missing her tongue. Her is part of her lips as well as facial tissue and a fragment of skull Obon and she had extensive skin maceration on her hands so yeah go ahead defensible. I don't know nobody knows it's like. Most people think that an animal scavenger came and took those things why didn't they take them from the other people to and also what they take other because usually scavengers take doc soft tissue right all those things but more they they don't stop it just a couple of things there's also a possibility that she was in the they had fallen into the ravine and she was in the water and so the water are washed away. Yeah possibly I want to believe the weird shit but there's like explanations on either side for all of them and I don't want to ignore them right but Yeti gatty but yet but and yet taking they also found the body of Alexander Cole Kovalyov who was twenty four in the same location but he didn't have the city of Troy so and actually none of the bodies aside from D. had any external wounds associated with bone fractures as if they'd been subjected to a high level pressure instead of a violent attack saddle. We're it could be described with falling but I like this other theory that I'll get to okay there was initial speculation. Originally there were like maybe the Mansi people had gotten pissed. They were on their land and attack Ma'am Ma'am but you know people Huyton camp there all the time and the Mansi people were not they were peaceful so that was discounted in fact all attack by like humans was ruled out because the hikers footprints were the only ones that were there right yup in the end. It was reported that six of the group members died of hypothermia and three a fatal injuries. The victims had died six eight hours after their last meal so they were probably sleeping in the middle of the night and at the time the verdict verdict was the group members at all died because of and this is what they ended it with compelling natural force. That's what they called it. What's that let's close. The fucking files deals guide compelling natural force like a hurricane yeah. That's the I what is or avalanche. I guess what they're insinuating. Wait icy so the inquests was closed in May of Nineteen fifty-nine like right when like when they found the four others and and the files were sent to a secret archive where night night I don't USSR Good Luck finding them and what else is in there. Oh Oh my God. Can you imagine a mind like the thing about that is it's like oh it sounds so sinister and spooky but like it was the Soviet Union. No files were allowed to be out so wait until the nineties that they got the files out yeah so the theories exclamation mark I wrote an avalanche obviously avalanches the first explanation that would pop into my ahead and I wanNA fuck and believe that because I love being like nope. It's not what you think it is. It's just simple thing perhaps they thought they heard one coming thought they heard one coming and cut themselves out of the tent and headed as they were out to the treeline but then why would they be walking. Yes not running I guess and also so why would you cut yourself out of a tense braid. If you're walking somewhere and you can have the calmness to walk somewhere. Why would you think see this is why I lack of calm of cutting yourself right eight zip abol tent see to me it's like they're wrong about the footprints and someone just misread that then that explains a lot of shit and it could be more likely to be any of these things but also and this could just and probably purist on my part. How are we talking about the detail of footprints during or after or within a avalanche lance right 'cause. Wouldn't that all be wiped away well. Maybe the avalanche had already happened and then cut themselves out in Ghana collapse. It's yeah okay but makes yes but all the skis and you can see info are standing straight up exactly where they were placed. These strong super strong skis strongest keys Russian Ski. That's right rush gaitskell. The Siberian huskies yeah the other thing about the cut that I like the cut of in tent is that maybe they thought someone was watching them and so they didn't want to unzip their fat content and be like Yo. Why are you watching US okay instead. They like cut a hole to be like peekaboo was was the whole on the opposite side of the entrance. I don't know it was on this..

When i don't owe the realities i can turn to somebody else and ask them. Hey like and being okay okay with asking for that help and saying hey can you help me with this or you know. That person may know something better about something. You know something else and so it's hey do you mind helping me in this in this aspect aspect universally guys struggle with i think so yeah they definitely do. I need to do this myself and you know and <unk>. I successful people. I don't care about success all that much but it's it's the they have asked people along the way you know and they do have have those coaches you know whether it's in sports or life or whatever and mentors and i think that's that's something that i really need to kind of focus on. It's the same thing you just going to go back back to being the athlete and going oh yeah i would've asked my coach how to improve my stro- or right right. It's not an admission that you don't know something and i think you guys put so much pressure sure on yourselves to know everything and they just want to actually we should say this out loud they want.

"At the time you know she's very anti my <hes> <hes> my mode as far as being an artist is concerned <hes> so within a few months i <hes> i cut another record <hes> with is completely different songs just because i wanted to make a record that was the opposite of what was a commercial sounding record <hes> so by doing that. I still had it. I still had hits on the on the record that i had made <hes> that second record but i got more more pleasure and more fulfillment filming from the record that hardly sold anything that nobody marketed and on top of that ironically i got more longevity career-wise allies by making a record that was artistically admirable and critically more impressive <hes> and in my opinion it prolonged my career. Oh you're a far longer than chasing <hes> <hes> pop success could have i mean don't get me wrong playing those playing the hits at a show typically. That's swire why fans come to hear the hits. You know <hes> but i but i don't think that i don't think that's my fan base. My fan base wants to hear good songwriting in writing <hes> and so by making a record that wasn't necessarily a quote unquote hit or ended record that just really sounded authentic that gave me the time to make another record that could satiated me and the quote unquote marketplace <hes> <hes> musically musically <hes> so ultimately long-term the record that i made that didn't have any so called hits on it really did very well for me and prolonged my career and actually made me a lot of money over time not in record sales but by long getting my my my life as a as an artist i <hes> so i do understand so many versions of this this argument in that you want to be the best and you wanna maximize your earning potential. You wanna put in all the time required personally for me. I rarely ever thought to myself. I need to practice as an athlete probably feel more that because you get to a certain level and you either have to be the best or you're not the best. You're not gonna play or of course there's then they applied the business element that which is you may be better than someone else but your cost cost more money. They need to spread out the roster right on the same thing happens musically in some ways where someone may say will we invested x. amount of dollars ars in this artists who need to recoup this money and we have to do it but say per artists basis right so so they may chase him success in that regard i. I hear what what you're what you're saying regarding being the best because as an artist <hes> for me personally i i never really thought to myself. I need to go practice practice. That's not really how i operate. I love to play music right so i mean if i had a guitar at my apartment. Once i leave here i probably go grab a drink rank and then go back to my apartment and just sit around and you know write songs <hes> just because i want to you know it's not about. I need to put in the time like ah athlete really has to put in the time because you know if you spend five days on the couch. She may be over over resting right but it's also the same. I played hockey because i love to like the question for you is. Are you having fun in your day to do. You love the chase. You love what you do because that's a motivation do do you love the task of winning the task. Now i enjoy the task for sure yeah but but when you get a little bit of taste of success i want more and big hell you s.'s. I would love for you gavin to bursted to list of the things you've failed to him. I saw the lot now. Tell you i mean i could. I could list first of all the songs that marketed that just that just were total with you know what i mean song that i thought were obvious hits. You know <hes> i mean i i remember. I remember complained billy joel. I was like you know..

"This is like and how many thinking we have cherie healy with us. We're doing group therapy today. Thank you dimitri for being the sacrificial lamb to go first. Now we're onto my dear friend ryan when you're in the hot seat my man so cherie takeaway ryan's face. I wish you could see just get this over ryan's like when is this going to end okay. Maybe it's time brooks that we tell them how. I see men so that ryan can relax a little bit. Yes on our conversation used just spoke beautifully about men and it was you got into this work. I believed to help serve women and really learned a lesson in yourself about men correct yeah. I originally started this because i felt like i had changed the world. Since i believe that we all have a gift to give that my gift would be that if i could make every every woman happy then i would make all the men and children happy by default so i started there but then i in working with women needed to really in for myself to get to place right felt like i could more understand man i had a really long history of bad relationships and and i thought there's no way guys guys are bad. It's there's something more for me to learn here. So i think through a lot of study of you guys. I learned that men are spectacular her and that you really truly are here for the highest reasons. I think i've never met a man who cares about his partner. Who doesn't want. I am her to be happy. You have tons to give and i think it's almost overwhelming when you can't find a way to give what you wanna a give and you try so damn hard and you're just trying to do it right and i don't know that we as women always make it very easy. We have a lot. I feed back for you. Yeah i appreciate it very kind words for the listeners. I want everyone to realize that when she said that men are spectacular. She who's looking directly in my eyes blowing kisses back. Let's get so with that sad. I said i know that <hes> what you're cooking right. Now we have an amy on the in the room who has very strong feelings about. We are challenged. I'm gonna lay down down and then probably emmy will want to jump right in. You have a habit of the quarter. Let me say to me. You have a habit of worrying cracked. I do i- i- ah i stress about certain things that is correct. Yes yes for the very good reason because i believe there's always a good reason for our behavior that you are chasing potential. You you wanna reach your highest potential..

It's like it's just the brain going you know so. That's the hack to get out of the head but then there's one more thing that part of you that says oh man. I don't want the puppy to grow up. I don't want the boat ride to end. How old is that part of. You voice. I dunno. I mean it's a distinct part of your personality smelly because we're made up of all these different parts. I'm guessing that that part is little young is when i was a kid yeah for sure yeah. So what would you tell your kids if they were like oh my god you know it's almost over. You have to talk to that part of yourself like you would to your kids. I bet you tell them something amazing. She you're right man used houston with good at one thing so when you're on vacation do you kind of sit back and let your kids go do their own things or do you to engage with the kids on whatever activities or your wife or say or whatever like i was just on a on a a baseball vacation trip last week and a daughter daughter was the only one that was staying in the house with the other families and so there are no other little kids around so what really got to me was engaging with her in doing special special things with her during that time for 'enrich. I mean obviously you're you're not killing time but you're kinda like so we went and got to be begun. We went and got fireworks. We went and made a fire fire. You know it was to me it was that self it fulfilled so much just having that it yeah it was one on one but it was also just doing activities with with her and not being like oh. I'm gonna get the do the bar and sit on the phone and do whatever yeah <hes> and that really helps me. No that's true. I'm i'm.

I'm having this activity or are you thinking king making great memories. I'm making memories may great memories. You know no because actually i don't. I don't care something for the kids. The memories are important yeah. I don't care so much much about making memories for me because the same reason when i got married i told my mom. She wasn't allowed to bring a camera to the wedding because i was so i was like you what you're going to do. Is you're gonna sit there. I know you you're gonna sit there and take pictures and be like oh. I can't wait to see this bitch. Gra and you're gonna miss. What's happening at at the wedding so i said we have a photographer. They're gonna take pictures. You can look at them. All i said but you cannot bring a camera. I don't want you to miss things by taking i'm not about you know i'm i'm not.

"I also think it like getting to know you have a massive heart and it's apparent how much you love your family and your kids and value that quality time with him. You always speak like it's beautiful to watch you. Speak about your family and so part of that might just be the sadness like oh. I want this to last forever and i know that it's i only have three more days of it. You know like it's just your you have so so much joy doing that with your family or doing it like we see how much joy you have on this podcast that it's you want to keep it. We all want to keep these things. It's funny you you say that when i was little we were getting a dog family dog and they asked me my parents asked me what dog i wanted and i said i wanted a puppy. That wasn't gonna grow up. That was how how does that squash and those rooms. You gotta shitsu isn't it. That's the truth behind the behavior like that's what we're trying to find out is men have behavior like yours is a behavior out of love. You want these times with special people to be everlasting so it's not an issue. It's not a fly. It's not a it's and i think as we get into the europeans and rex and the rest of us are issues. It's these are great. Men that have issues out of love <hes> agree so giant to wrap this up <hes> cherie so lastly like what does dmitry due to overcome this so he can be more present and have the most joyous experience and then leave there in peace.

No realize it's like the number glenn business strategy the number one strategy for relationships. It's everything is what we all want so. Can you give us a little background to your history in this space. How how did you get started. What was your motive to start but first off. How long have you been in it. And how did you get your start <hes> yeah. It's a great question i wanted to do it. When i got out of college i was just twenty three and life coaching had become thing and i was like oh man i studied psychology and communications signed me up and then i started training and i thought who's gonna listen to a twenty four year olds. I really started living so i gave myself so more study time and i remember working in l. A. actually staring out at the ocean and a board meeting and i kept hearing the word bottom line bottom line nine and then it started dawned on me that this was not my bottom line. It wasn't was a mind. My bottom line is to figure out how to get people out of bed and and do what they're here to do. You enjoy the ride. I love it. I love that you said you help leaders. Get what they want so they can change the world but really that can be anybody. Everybody's a leader <hes> and to discover our true potential in every area of life so have you had that was a pivotal moment for you and then you sort of made a personal switches well and also made up professional switch triggered that yeah then i finally gave myself permission like i got the permission slip to go for it because i felt like i was old enough you know and it was time and i think we've we've all talked already and i know you all want something to all of our listeners want something and at a certain point in life that want just becomes almost unbearable you have to get it and so so i made the leap and and left the whole corporate scene and i think that helps now because i was in the hairball of the corporate team and i can. I can talk to my clients about it. I know what they're in but yeah. I feel like i been given so much. I learned so much from many teachers and there's an old saying that information information that goes unshared becomes a burden ooh yeah so i felt like i had to give it was my turn and that's all the compulsion to actually serve yeah i mean i think it's a calling my tagline is bring it.
