In the Dirt 13: 2020 - The year of gravel that was and wasn't
"Tom hello and welcome to in the dirt from the gravel. Ride podcast. i'm your host. Craig dalton joined shortly by my co host. Randall jacobs in the dirt is made possible by listener contributions by listeners. Like you simply go to buy me a coffee dot com slash. The gravel ride. And you'll see membership options as well as one time contributions you can make to support the podcast in everything we do. This on the podcast rental ni- are going to take a look back at twenty twenty the ups and downs some of my favorite episodes and conversations. I've had and some of the things we've been able to achieve personally due to the lockdown. It wasn't all downsides. There were some upsides particularly our work on the new ridership forum. We've been talking about in previous episodes with that. Said let's jump right into the conversation. I did want apologize quickly for the few minutes of helicopter background noise. You'll get to enjoy while. I'm speaking but that was out of my control as you can imagine a little random my friend. How are you today. Today is a good day. I just got back from a ride before the rain came in and still living amongst redwoods on on the ridge above half moon bay so i have very little complain about. How about yourself greg. I'm doing pretty good. I just finished doing a few repairs to the bike. I had john vargas from orange. Seal the company on the podcast last week and i promised i was going to go check the sealant levels in my tires. And i knew. I needed to swap tires out. Because i've got these new. Rene tires that i wanted to try. I feel somewhat guilty and somewhat vindicated one of my tires who's bone-dry and the other one actually had an appropriate amount of sealand in it. Remind me what you're running. I was running mal at set up. I had a darrow wti. Be up front and now by way in the back got it. Yeah in day. Tend to like the sidewalls on those tend to at least the first time you set him up. I found that my ceiling dries out a little bit more quickly. Because it's doing a lot more work to seal the microprocessors. That's not surprising. What was the last time you refilled. I think i might have done it two months ago at least in one wheel but the rear wheel which is the one that was bone dry. I don't think i've touched in four or five months. Okay yeah that makes sense. Yeah so being in la feels so dry down here. That has like when john was mentioning. How often you should check your sealant thinking. I am totally guilty of ignoring that. And i'm going to have a long walk home with no cell coverage and some of these canyons going back to our everyday carry. This is episode. This is by carry a little sixty milliliter bottle in my my frame through. I think i think i'm gonna need like a spot transmitter to be able to signal someone for a ride home. In some of these candidates i just get no cell phone coverage here. Yeah yeah and the other thing. Interesting without setup. I've gone from forty seven millimeters to forty two millimeters and. It's been awhile for me. I don't think i've ever run my six fifty b. We'll said with this narrower of tire. So it's gonna be interesting because i'm going from a slick rear tire back to a nabi but on both sides going a little bit narrower. So i'm really you know it's important as a gravel cyclists to just try these different setups and see what feels right my inclination when getting a bike that was bigger tire capable was to go as big as possible and now i'm dialing it back a little bit as you know i'm a fairly technical writer so i'm not fearful of what i'm giving up there but the volume will come into play and it'll be curious to see how it all pans. Yeah i'm curious as well. 'cause i know you have your running our wheels right which are quite wide in so with twenty-seven internal those curious to see how wide those tires sit and how they perform because it's a little bit wide for that particular. Width of tire should work through this time. We've had other people do it. Yeah yeah it'd be interesting interesting setup find out soon enough tomorrow hopefully l. man so. I wanted to get you on the mike this week. And just talk about twenty twenty and we're recording this. Mid december and in many ways for gravel cycling twenty twenty has been the year that was the year that wasn't One very much. So when i think back to all the things i was doing at the end of two thousand nineteen i had been in bentonville. Arkansas previewing the big sur. Sugar gravel events There was obviously a bunch of acquisitions of big gravel events. There was a few new ones that appeared on the calendar in two thousand nineteen. Suet felt like twenty twenty was going to have all kinds of events all kinds of new equipment coming out and some of that happened but some of it didn't due to covid so it's been a topsy turvy year. Yeah well the trends in the industry in terms of like what people are buying have definitely continued with gravel being the thing which is not surprising at all because these are long said kind of all purpose road off road bikes that the industry should have been selling normal people all along instead of these race. Replicas that we were were all writing before so that continued but yeah the lack of events and even like group rides or at least responsible group. Rides is definitely been a challenge this year. Yeah that was a big switch for me. Lifestyle lies just a really always look forward as we sit on the podcasts. Before just look forward to at least one group ride a month. Yeah yeah it's the the rolling community elements of it. Yeah the bike biz. in general experience. The boom like you said gravel as a category but kids bikes. I mean there was an absolute drought of equipment on the available on the market at certain times in the year and that was kind of a couple of things happened in. Actually you and i were talking about doing a deeper dive on just the state of the bicycle industry and supply chains and so on in general and i. We'll definitely do that one random. Because i think it's really interesting. Yeah there's some very very interesting dynamics happening we'll leave. We'll leave it at that but we can allude by saying when the pandemic i hit you know. Sales went off a cliff because everyone was very reasonably. You know panicked and concerned about what you know what was to come and then shortly thereafter by spikes but at the same time supply chains were were clogged up by you. Know measures taken to reduce spread in areas. Where bikes are being produced and so that has reaped all sorts of havoc. So if you have gravel bike be glad that you have it and if you don't have one and you happen in your thinking of one for next year and do you have an opportunity to snag one. It might be wise to make that acquisition sooner rather than later just given what. I'm seeing for availability though. Who knows who knows. That's a whole nother conversation. We'll have in the new year. I suppose absolutely so one of the things. We kind of referenced. As with the elimination of formal group events there was this void. That's been fulfilled both by this great surge in solo adventures but also in a lot of race organizers putting out virtual challenges which was interesting and i participated in a number of them and a number of them. We've discussed in the past whether they worked or didn't work but i thought that was an interesting trend in two thousand twenty. Yeah i actually want to hear more about your experience. I've i tend to be one to go to a few events a year but do a lot of solo or group riding with friends. So i'm less engaged in that scene for me. You know a couple of the ones stood out and it was more due to kind of what they put out there. And what i ended up experiencing that. I think why i have an affinity for them. I really like the ones that were basically encouraging riders to go out and do a route in their local community that somehow matched or pay omar to the event they had signed up for the virtual event they were participating in and the reason i highlight that is because there is now an archive of amazing routes over the country from people who participated in these rides and because they were all named after the event that they were highlighting. You can find these things out there. I'll speak specifically to my experience with esotique gravel. I was asked to put down some roots for the san francisco edition and it was a real labor of love for me. I spent hours thinking about. How could i create a route. That was as physically and mentally challenging. As what. I had experienced in steamboat the year before but was really a tribute to all the great trails. We have in marin county. So i sat down and honestly i thought i made the black route harder than i would even want to personally do which was quite funny but i a crazy friend of mine. James said now. We gotta do this year. I wanted to do something big for my birthday. Let's do this. Let's see the black route. And we said i said okay. Let's do it. We were supposed to do it on the day of svp gravel but we ended up doing it the day before just because of some logistics on our side. But we did. A you know an absolute mega tour of marin county much of which were some of my favorite trails in the county outstanding Is that. I assume that there is a link to its into all these routes that you can that you can shake we share it in the show. No yeah absolutely s bt gravel on their website has a linked a page that to the virtual events and i think there's something like twenty six cities and a handful of different countries that had roots locked down. So you'll find links to ride with. Gps where you can download those files. And i did it. When i first came down to l. a. That was the first thing. I hit up. Just to get a few gp x. Files in my computer and that's and some ideas as to where to ride. Yeah oh we should throw that in the the gop ridership channel as well. It'd be a good place for folks to find it. I want to dig into this. Because i'm going to be doing a road trip shortly. You've got to so that that was my favorite ride. A minute was part the trails that i chose but it was also part the camaraderie of riding with my friend james. He knew he had something he needed to do. So he insisted we started at four thirty in the morning. So we started with headlamps which was great. You know just of adds to the overall experience of doing a massive day out on the bike. Yeah yeah very very cool. Yeah how about you. What was your favorite ride of the year. I mean i went for a few good ones. But the one that i found most joyful has to be the the group ride that that you and i hosted so i think what would it be called the thesis gravel ride podcast gravel explorer. We started in downtown. Mill valley went up. We went up railroad. We went through a bunch of stuff that i actually hadn't really tied together in that way before you lead that part of the route and then up to west point in a lot of people split off from there. There was a group of us that came from the city and put in a proper properly long day. Think like thirty thirty. Five people showed up and going back to the city. I think those five of us together but It was a really lovely ride in that it had a bit of everything and people have different abilities and different amounts of time available. Were able to come out and do the portion of it that made sense for them and just split off where they needed to was a lot of fun. There's something about you know. It's often challenging. When you get a group of thirty five riders going off road to imagine that everybody can stick together but that there was something about that rider that route in that group. That just made it easy like we never were waiting too long for anybody known was too far ahead. No one got lost. Knowing got injured. It was just a really nice day out on the bike. Well on the handful of us. That really just wanted to go hard and be exhausted when we got home. God that in the second half of the ride so it kinda worked out well that way. It's a format that i'll definitely be following in the future when group rides are thing again So that we can get like more inclusive rides that have people of all abilities. That's one of the nice things about marin county is that you've got so many ways off mount tam which is kind of the focal point of the ride that you can bail out easily. So unlike if you're in the sierras or up in tahoe where you're doing a massive wilderness. Loop which definitely has its own challenges and benefits. The route around town is ideal for mixed ability writers. Because you can make it as hard as you want and you can also provide great bail out options for people. Yeah fully agree fully agree. And that's something that you know randall. Forum for us in twenty twenty one. I really want to help. Riders design great group ride experiences. And i think it's a great opportunity for us to really put some value out there until the world fully agree and it's it's a problem that i haven't really seen solved will like this. Ride coordination elements. Like you can post a group ride on say like on your shop website or on your team website or something but then it's very siloed and then how do you do real time court coordination if somebody's running late so we're we've been thinking about how to facilitate that without having to build software used tools that are out there in in a in a novel way. We'll see what we can come up with. It's been cool to see people jump into the different regions and start to coalesce joined together and suggests rides and roots. And i think what we're talking about there's just sorta the next level of. How do we put a root out there. You've called it out the next saturday we're going to do a group ride. How do we do it safely. How what kind of communication tools can we use. I think there's a great opportunity there. Yeah for sure for sure. How some of your favorite things in two thousand twenty That's a good question. So i've been writing as i've been riding the thesis bike all year which is served me. Well a couple things that i've added on that have been a revelation would be. I've gone to a wider bar. So i'm using a pin w coast bar. And i think it's a forty eight if i'm not mistaken with a jump. Who'd that's exactly which is a jump from the forty four that i had on their previously and for the type of writing i do. I've just really become happy and accustomed to it. It's got a nice flair. But not overly flared out there. And i feel super dialed on the technical stuff right now. i mean that makes sense and you're also i mean. Have you really ridden much road at all. No like i feel like in two thousand twenty like i've all but given up road writing. I might have done paradise loop at home a few times with with some road friends but other than that. I really can't point to many other rides. And i think that that makes that's what it set up makes sense for a gravel. Bike really is a more of a dedicated machine versus. Say the way that i ride it like. I was out on a road ride today. So i like to be able to swap between the two and still have it look and feel like a road bike and rode mode. Yeah exactly the other sort of little tiny thing that i i just have to give a shout out to any product that can make it so i don't walk home from a mechanical is important to me and deserves a shoutout and a half to give a shout out to my friends at dina plug because at least twice. If not three times this year. I've got cut in the sidewall little one once in the tread and just pop the diner plug in their let the sealant do its trick pumped it up a little bit and wrote off you've managed to seal a sidewall cut like outside of the core. I would say top top of like the very kind of outer edge of the treads sidewall. Maybe is not the right statement that one. That one's tough to to seal. But yeah i've had good luck with these as well. I've been using the kind of generic bacon strips sort of thing which is similar to what a smaller version of what i have from my car. Being able to you know fitch- fix flats when you get a a a nail or something in the in the tire with the bacon strips just kind of pushing them in with a with a little tool. Is that how they work exactly. Yeah and then the ceiling comes around and and seals up all the you know the up around it. Yeah i just got. I just got a towpik. Like eighteen tool tool thing with that has bacon strips in there but being honest i've never used a bacon ship before so i think i would. I would still go to my dialogue. I but it's good to know they're in there because i feel like they. They could seal of even bigger whole trying to think of of used it. Once i've been i've had good fortune this year. Either good fortune are picking good lines. Nice anything that stood out to you that you've added to the bike this year that you'd say this one of my favorites with two thousand twenty. My big thing has been writing with the frame bag. I love it. Like i went for road ride today. It's so light and just convenience to have what i need to bring that i just leave it on there all the time and so you have gone on some rides where you know short ride. It's like i have everything that i need if i if i get caught out and certainly where i am here in the mountains like i can be in the middle Can be five ten miles away from a road. Maybe not that far. But i can be far enough from a road and far enough from cell coverage where it's a bad time if i get caught out and then for all day rides a making my meals and especially in a kobe world it you know you want you wanna kinda minimize your engagement with the communities. You're riding through if you can. So i'll make a whole meal and put it in my bag and have it ready to go and just enjoy lunch on a ridge. Line or the like yeah. That's a good point i've been. I've definitely like amped up my bag on bike storage these days and even lately down here. I've been throwing on one of those handlebar feed bags and dropping a third bottle in it as a way of making sure. I don't have to stop anywhere for water. Yeah the another solution there. And i have done this in some of my bike. Packing is So i have a partial frame bag From my friend market post carry. And then i also have a prototype that he made which is a full frame bag and when i take that went on for bike packing ultra plea actually put a big like three leader reservoir and there in. That's a great solution for you know all day. Multiday sort of riding. Yeah that's been one of the one of the super engaged discussion threads on the ridership forum lately about one of our members setups which is interesting. It's definitely something that i've wanted to tinker around with an explore a little bit. I don't have a full frame bag at this point. But i even thought about putting it in my quarter frame bag to just sort of effectively. How third bottle but have a hydration tube coming out of it. Yeah it makes a ton of sense and it works really well. it's actually more convenient. I find than grabbing bottles shoving back in. Yeah yeah i imagine so. So let's see and then the other thing is actually not the second thing. I have is is actually not a bicycle product but my two thousand eleven toyota prius that i took the back seats out of built a platform and have a little cabana tent off the back and have it set up this kind of an adventure mobile so i can get to the places where i want to ride my my gravel bike set-up or go bike king further afield nice. I think at some point. We're going to need to see a picture a video of this because this isn't hashtag van life it's hashtag press life. Yeah it's definitely far more minimalist though when you take out the back seats shocking how much you can fit in there. The platform that i put my bike on top. I could probably fit to bikes on top with a with a piece of cardboard between. And then when i park just lock it up outside the car and then all of my gear goes underneath the platform cooking gear food whatever. I can even have room for my telescope. So it's not like i'm not really wanting for much and with that just so i understand it. Visually is the hatch open. And your feet out there on a platform or are you all enclosed in the car. So it's a it's a good question. So i built a four panel platform connected by piano hinges and the The rear section bull pulled out of the way. So i can access the storage underneath in the front section folds out of the way because you need room for the front seats but when i slammed the front seats all the way forward the platform gives me six foot four inches of space and then plenty of with four me and another person and i got a two person. Therm arrests style mattress So it just works really really well again is always the hatch closed. I can sleep with sleeping with the hatch. I also just got a one of these habitants which is a a small company in the us that makes these tents that when the hatches open it gives you screens and windows and protection and it's not it doesn't necessarily make like open up a ton more usable space but just the feel on the vibe and the ventilation and so on is really nice to have and it's like one hundred bucks which which i couldn't complain with so added that to the setup amongst other things that's awesome yeah next week did a death valley action. Hopefully hopefully if the park open so. Let's see what else you want to talk about today. Oh and then other things for this year like being invited by you to do these in the dirt sessions which has been really wonderful and something that you know. Always aspired to have a platform to nerd about bikes ideas. So thank you for that You're absolutely welcome. It's been a pleasure and a lot of fun. And i think i know from the feedback. We've been getting from listeners. people have been enjoying it which is awesome. It's great to hear about your favorite moments of the year. You know it's been. It's been a fun year. I've been doing the podcast over two years now. And you know twenty twenty. As i said we thought it was going to be me attending Interviewing a ton of event organizers and that was going to be this this big thing and it turned out. That wasn't the big thing that i ended up doing. It's been equally enjoyable. I think i've learned a lot having the forum and the gravel ride podcast facebook group prior to that just getting feedback from the listener about what they're finding utility and it's been great so you know i think for me like the most informative episode if i think about it from that context for the listener. I think was yana from rene cycles. It was just a very thoughtful discussion about tires. And what works. And what doesn't work and it. Despite being released at the very end september it's skyrocketed and is in my top five most downloaded episodes for the entire year. Oh nice which is cool you my what was the. Oh i was just going to say you. And i are in my second most downloaded episode of the year. Which is the gravel bike. One zero one episode. Oh nice who. What's what's number one number. One is the salsa cutthroat episode. And i think recording that episode in the feedback. I got very early. Early on in the year was very illustrative to me about what people value. The cutthroat is a little bit different of a bicycle than i had been covering prior to that so a little bit. Atypical in that. At twenty nine or wheel sat very big tire capacity really built with a lot of input from the bike packing and tour divide multi-day racing kind of category. And i think that was just fascinating for a lot of people to hear about that. Machine definitely is much more of a de facto. Drop our mountain bike. Yeah yeah so. It's like very capable offered machine. And i think the thing is it. Does it just opens up. Another little sliver of possibility on what you can do on the bike and i think we've talked about the trend towards bigger tire clearance and little things like that that is continuing to come into play with the most forward thinking gravel bike brands around. Yeah especially for like a dedicated machine if you're going to have a road bike as well if you're going kind of the one bike routes than it can be djing if you're having multiple bikes in your stable having something that's that radically capable and you can even put a fork on it. I believe. I think it's four corrected. Makes a lotta sense. Yeah i mean so just another sort of sector of bike to consider when you're thinking about what you really want to do with your bike now before we get off the rene irs Episode what any big takeaways from that one. Something that surprised you or in some of them are are sort of more obvious. When i say them or when i heard them you know i think what he. He made a point about the uniform of tire tread. When you have tread pattern that's very equal across the tire. You'd lose very minimal amounts of efficiency on the road. Sometimes i get hung up on these big knobby tires on the road but the reality is it's it's you're not losing and he you know he did a lot of research on this punishing himself actually riding these tires against one another and found again like it was. It was rarely the inefficiencies in his tire setup. That were a deficiency in his overall power Yeah well and you. And i have talked about a way to kind of balance. Some of those goals to by doing the whole mullet set up. So if you if you're gonna go knobbly you're up front where you need it. And maybe a file trade in the back. Yeah yeah yeah. And there's also the big you know just sort of the omnipresent discussion of seven hundred by six fifty and you know it really it. There's so many variables that go in there i think the takeaway there was if six fifty b allows you to run the equipment. You want to run then run. It don't think about that. You're losing anything. Think about what you're gaining. Yeah yeah obviously. I'm a big proponent of more volume the better but obviously living here in marin where you know a dropper post also is part of that equation and you're riding mountain bike trails at that is that makes a lot of sense but if you're in the middle the country and it's relatively flat seven hundreds might be the way. Yeah exactly so anyway as we said in the opening. I'm real curious to try. These forty two millimeter tires a little bit lower lower tiresome with the. I've been running but i think it's pretty appropriate for the type of staff. I'm doing down here. So how about your most fun episode record in the gravel. Cycling community is so great that you know they've every conversation. I have is usually just fluid and easy which is which makes the effort i put into this joyful. It's has nothing worse than interviewing someone that has like teeth so it was. it's there's a bunch of episodes. I probably highlight. But i first instagram live recording which i was trying during the the beginning part of the pandemic with amanda naaman was a lot of fun Great rider and just very fun lady to talk to and the other person was rebecca rush. Just talking about everything. She puts into rebecca's private idaho and all her accomplishments as an athlete. She was so approachable and friendly with her time. It was just a joy to talk to her. I think that was probably one of those episodes where i had fifteen minutes of post recording conversation that i just. We were technically off the mike at that point but we just went on and on talking so that was a lot of fun. Yeah she's she's wonderful. I had the good fortune of being invited to a dinner hosted by alan lim at otter when cr was still a thing. Remember that and got to talk to rebecca here story and she. I mean she had to work really hard and also she was. When she wasn't on the bike she was working another job. There's not as much money in women's cycling and even for someone is accomplished as her and so hearing that part of her story was definitely compelling to and she's just a has agreed attitude and it's fun to be around so yeah so true. I i'm excited for twenty twenty one. I think there's there's a whole host of people. I still wanna interview getting a lot of feedback from listeners. At this point as to subjects they'd like to hear about so you know there's no dearth of investigative discussions that i wanna have to enlighten people about equipment. Events and and athletes in gravel cycling. Yeah well and you. And i talked about some of the kind of the the more psychological or even spiritual elements of cycling. And maybe getting somebody on. Who's an expert in one of those fields to to explore that further. Like what does what does this mean. And how does it tie into a healthy lifestyle. There's there's a lot of great areas to dive into. Yeah absolutely and i feel like cova has allowed a lot of us opportunities to do things we might not have done otherwise just because of the you know. The the lockdowns the lack of social interaction. What are some of the highlights of covert if there can be three you not covert itself. Obviously but just the time it's given you this year. I think the the central theme i would say for for my year has been self reflection and like all the the usual distractions all the usual excitements all the usual patterns that i had in my life. I which i think is true for a lot of us are there. I really feel for people who are in parts of the country or parts of the world. Where it's it's winter right now in with is a flare up. That's you know that much more difficult. And so i would say self reflection on the bicycle a lotta solo riding as opposed to you know used to always be on group rides always like linking up with somebody. And so that. That idea. That the ruling meditation spitting enjoying spending time with myself and then just doing things that are not the bike trail running a bit And been reading ton. I'm like a book a week or two bucks a week at this point has been again part of this broader you know kind of contemporary theme the year for me. How about yourself is yeah. I spent the first. Maybe four months of the lockdown. Really recommitting myself to meditation. And i don't think i've actually shared this with you. But i had a good ninety day streak going in there which i was proud of myself on. I do realize that with meditation. I'm very streak oriented. Which is there something wrong with my practice right now. I really feel like. I need to practice for practice sake and not give up because i broke my streak that makes sense. Yeah i mean it. It's one of the things that i that i remind myself with that. So my meditation practices all over the place. So you're the fact that you had a ninety day streak already is pretty outstanding but this element of you know just like you get distracted or you fall off and you become. You're mindful of it. You're aware of it. And then you get back the focus in an in really. It's kind of like meditation in the moment in microcosm like is like a microcosm of that broader situation of like getting away from that that self reflective focus that you were talking about. Yeah i mean. I feel like as as we share like writing. Is that rolling meditation. So i don't feel like it's devoid entirely missing from my life. But i do think that's part of my challenge is to really kinda dig into making that time to sit quietly to add to the rolling meditation on the bike One thing i would say that Again another one of these kind of silver lining on the gray cloud of covid is not a lot of fomo. Because there's not a lot of there's not much to miss out on in so it really is like okay. What am i going to do with this time. That and that is so true. It's something my wife has mentioned on a number of occasions. She's like she's very happy not to have fomo and i think you know she's really valued that aspect of her change in life and for us the at a personal level. We were able to move down to southern california to care for my mother-in-law. And that you know that wouldn't have been possible in other times in the same way it has been now so i'm i am thankful that the current situation in the world has allowed me to kind of come down here and sit and spend time with family when they need it. I think that that time to like so. In my case like i went back home for six weeks in was imbedded. My sister's family with with my my niece and two nephews there and you know it's something that i otherwise wouldn't have done. I would have been at burning man or something and you know i just the the the the time to really sit and reflect on how one is living life and what is important to reset a lot of this certainly for me. A lot of these changes will be durable. Like what what. I prioritize in life because i've had the opportunity to you know to not be missing out on the things i was doing in also realize that a lot of things i was doing. I didn't really didn't really give me the balanced life and life trajectory. That i wanted or connected with the type of people that i wanted to be connected with necessarily so i think that that opportunity to reset is something that hopefully you know as many of us as possible are are grabbing the opportunity however difficult it is to deal with the loneliness and the stress and everything else of of being in a pandemic environments with all the everything that has been happening happening politically and And so on in the world. Yeah totally. Hope you a couple of years from now. We'll look back and see that. We've all grown. I think there are some things you know. Going back to the discussion of rival cycling. I think there are things that the community has learned throughout the pandemic. That will be durable. And i think virtual events solo expeditions. All these kind of cool things that have arrived. They're not gonna ever supplant the need and desire to get together as a community. But i think they can add to our experience as cyclists. Just imagine what it's going to be like when be group are a thing again and you see all of your friends and big group that the just seems like it's going to be such a joyful Relieving moment when that's that's part of the regular routine totally i think another one of the projects. That probably wouldn't have happened is the ridership. Yup you know you. And i had both been growing separate communities around the gravel. Ride podcast or in your case thesis and we realized maybe in part due to covid but i think it was there before that the ridership or the vision we have for the ridership is much much bigger than what we're doing at the gravel. Ride or what. You're doing a thesis ties into kind of the like. What are the tools that we need to facilitate The online tools that we need in order to facilitate the sorts of online connection that we're all so starving for and like it it plays into like why we got. You know why we got your. You know the gravel right. Podcast community off of facebook is an example. Have you seen the social dilemma. By the way. I haven't a little bit scared. Watch it that i. It was really really well done in talks about some of the toxic elements of social media. And how it's eroding our psyches in our in our culture in our social cohesion. And so on and it's done it's it ties into kind of some of the motivations. You and i talked about having a forum that is is structured in a different way with different incentives. Yeah i mean. I think we want people. I know we want people to be able to jump into the ridership forum. Get their bike. Nursery out ask questions share their setup. Sheriff pitchers of their ride share their roots. Generally commune with other riders. But then get the heck out of there. Go ride your bike. Yeah and when group riser thing coordinate group rides and then go see each other in person. Yeah yeah exac. Let's let's take the love and passion. The gravel cycling community shows when it's in person in events with package up an element of those discussions in an online forum. Devoid of advertising devoid of any distractions. And let's you know let's get together and build something you mean. You don't want to like manipulate the members of the community and then sell their their mind shared advertisers. Who try to convince them to buy crapper vote for things against their interests. That is not part of my plan. Randall right i guess. I guess we'll just have to go with your way so we've had some good conversations happening in there too. Obviously lots of talks about bikes and gear plenty of bike nursery. There my friend patrick over its science coaching. Who actually is a is a thesis alum. has been sharing a lot of his wisdom on core conditioning and hip openers. And and things like this things you can be doing off the bike that can help you on the bike and and off the bye. That was really cool to see. I mean patrick's a- coach obviously and someone who charges for his services but he has been there freely mixing it up with other users. In fact sharing what i would say are sort of proprietary. Pdf documents about core work and strengthening hip. Flex hip flexor flexibility. Just things that he's developed as a professional he's just putting them out there for people to use freely. I thought that was really cool to see. I mean it wasn't like we asked him to do that. Someone asked a question about training for their first hundred miler and all the sudden here was patrick laying down all this knowledge. Yeah he was. It's funny because after he left to focus on his business he was doing our writer experience and our consultant so on people would still be reaching out asking for him. Apparently some of our writers are still working with him as a coach. And so on which is just really lovely that again this this theme of of connection and being genuinely useful whether you're making money off it or not put good things out in the world and you're you're living hopefully will will come. Yeah exactly the other thread. That i kind of picked up on There was a lot of discussion around riding in mendocino county in california. It's an area. That's not far from san francisco yet. I don't think i've pedaled. They're more than once or twice and not in a meaningful way. And it's always. I've seen pictures of grasshoppers up there and some other experiences that i've lost it after it was just cool to be able to dig in and ask questions about like. Oh if i was going to stay in a hotel what town would stay in. What are some ways in which i can find some routes and just to get. Gps files dumped on. Me was awesome when you're back in the bay. Let's let's make a trip yet. I've been doing a little bit of writing up there in this this. It's it's stunning in a in a uniquely kind of north of north of the city. Sort of way absolutely there was also got connected with Gentlemen by the name of simon. Who's putting on. An event in kenya called the mike migration gravel grinder and it follows the migration dry. It's during june which is the migration period of the wildebeest in kenya. And he's this gravel cycling experience to showcase local athletes and create a four day. long event. i'm going to get him on the podcast for an interview in january to talk about it. But i thought it was really cool to see an event organizer kind of come in and start mixing it up in the forum and selfishly for him. I hope that what he's putting in is gonna come back out in terms of awareness of his event in kenya Hopefully it's only the The sag wagons following the peleton in the lions stick to following the wildebeest herds. There was some discussion of that. There were local tribesmen. That would be guarding the tents every night when you were sleeping. So that's reassuring. I've heard stories about What's the one in south africa. The cape epic in like you know various encounters with wild animals. Yeah i i'll i wanna share a quick story on the podcast before we go so. I raced in the job to see mountain bike race. A nine day stage race in south africa in two thousand nineteen. I want to say. And i was riding with one of my teammates and we stopped for p. Break after riding along a long. Barb wire fence line and we could see a couple of writers coming behind us and we were looking out in the field and we saw an animal. And we're like oh this is great. This is our real south african experience and we see the animal kind of running towards our general direction that fence line and i forget what kind of animal it was. Some sort of like gazelle or horned deer like coming our way. The exact name is escaping me. But we see it start. Visually changing its trajectory towards the rider. Coming along the fence line. So it's making a beeline to ram this poor writer and myself and my friend were just like. Oh my god. This woman is about to get impaled by this animal. What can we do. We are still fifty feet away from her but what the animal didn't realize was that there was a barbed wire fence in between it and the ryder And it ran full speed into that fence. And i i don't know what damage it created for the for the poor animal but it did bounce off the fence and was able to run away and the the woman rider rides up to us on this corner that we are turning on and i was like holy crap. I cannot believe what just happened. Oh my god we you so terrified and it turns out she was a german woman and she basically just said something in the most casual way that she wasn't concerned about this gazelle or whatever was about to impale her in her south african.

"Welcome welcome radio listeners. Suppose BUTTRAM CYCLING SHOW NUMBER FIFTY NIFTY. Fifty fifty fifty fifty. That's a pretty good thing pretty soon. We'll be as old as greg every way. Slow down there come on. Everyone Bend over. Half Time. Dr Jellyfish. I did that slide by this time next year. We'll have a hundred. Let's see how that works Omega Math. Yeah like what did to believe. There was not going to be math today. Man Oh boy got my back track there. I said well if that'LL BE ON THE RECORDING. Probably not and postpone. Yeah what's going on up there? Nice weather this last weekend at. We wrote our bikes on Saturday. And we did is kind of long before we found a bar. I was kind of performer. Yeah that's longer than six or seven miles even five. Shabas the threshold. If you're not gonNA stop every so often then you should call it a training ride. Not right not just a ride and it over five at least if it's in the sixty no it's race. Yeah it's like okay. Just I'm just GONNA throw shot up to spend for having us go to the bric. Brick was good. Oh Yeah Rick was fun. I haven't been there in years and I- courtesy of pull tabs got a couple of really cheap beers. Oh Yeah Yeah. That's I didn't know they did that on Saturday. That was that was a good deal. Either price price half price or a dollar so at at something like that and a half price dollar three dollars and fifty cents for a two pints of something delicious Hazy Rabbit. I was only there for one full price. Yeah I got two bucks to one dollars. And this is drinking Pan Schlitz. Actually it was my punishment for having to pull the rug. Yeah that's a beautiful later stature. Sure yeah there was some. There's some movement afoot to have that on a steelers real stop. Possibly that would not be a bad thing. There's other ones up that way. That was kind of while we were sitting there looking at how far other spots were from that area. Well that's only two miles. That's only three miles and it's like oh they're kind of close together. I don't WanNa be like hobby. Wanted to go all right. And that's only four miles from a CO worker. Told me what an absolutely fantastic barn port Washington that we need to check out next time. We're up there. What's IT called James Pub yes graze all know this eight hundred beers my buddy Robert the savage Mexican us worth of them an old new rock and way back in the day. Oh yes yeah yeah we can always go to rascals for cheap bears up there to allow their. Mike is not persona non particular establishment and yet true. So yes you can tell it's van. Jk Antoni here. Hello today got the got. The these are look at those These beautiful coasts roasters my buddies laser cutter for making coaster. Well I suppose you can cut any again. They're beautiful. This is a really cool. Yeah I mean that's that's very detailed and sled works is not a bike company by the way maybe it should be but at this one. Isn't I feel bad about putting beer on you? Know I don't look Biran. It passed. It was a moment. Yeah so there's a lot of stuff going on. I WanNa say this just jinx. Winter's over has now we're going to get hammered with snow. See what I did there. It's reverse other day. Was it yesterday a half hours? So the the flurries well. It came down on the floor looked outside. It was pretty impressive. Didn't stick that oil. No yeah but it was forty two degrees. It's it was. It was a twenty minute burn. Yeah right on through. That's just a that's like snow giving you the finger. I'm not saying there's not GonNa be any more snow but I am seeing the usefulness of snow for fat biking down this far south in the status probably over sadly sadly wasn't a great year in southern Wisconsin for Viking. It was not kind of had to go two hours north or so at least to catch a good snow solid snow pack which was good riding and that maybe you WANNA drive to our surrender by snowpack. I don't want to drive two hours. Michael how my door and goal right now? So that's why the urban assault Bikes are starting to make their way out of the fold warehouse again. Because it's time to attack in Milwaukee again speaking of attacking Milwaukee that guide you not saw. They announce a tour in there. Yeah they're going to be in Michigan and like summer a couple of months from now but they haven't made a swing over this way yet Mister Zito's got. His new company started with his buddy doing Bike tours in Milwaukee on some kind of fixation besides there's something it's Asian sides. I don't think they're actually up and running yet. But they were building bikes. They're going to have thirty for rental or doing these tours that they're going to be running. I think out of the Boone and Crockett area. Down there They all like are they. Identical they all size rob buyers or are they straight straight bars. Flat Bar single speed bikes for simple people in central city like Milwaukee EC maintenance cheap chains. Everything about it can be right. Allie rake in the money during the DNC. Yeah if the current device doesn't kill everyone I speaking of the corona virus. It's now called Kobe. Eighteen or nineteen nineteen twenty. Something wasn't split with the lime disease and just don't drink the the the lines and go around with going out. Is that if you drink bleach it? Will you know prevent from getting people? Oh warning warning. This is one of those things where Darwin's theory of evolution. We'll take out they don't use tide pods between your cheek and gum and the dumbest thing handed. Someone actually asked to call in. Can I get the current of Irish from a package from China? I don't know can you come may I may I I so One of the one of the current Things that got affected by cove in nineteen is Nabs has been postponed from the end of this month was going to be the last weekend of March is now. It's GONNA be postponed till August while a lot of conferences. And such are being closed down. Yeah usher Theater no announcement yet. But it's definitely on their radar because there's going to be seventy thousand people there it will just hand out mask severin that do nothing or however many people show up yeah ten. Yeah so if you're planning on going to something with a bunch of people at it you might consider checking out whether it's actually happening or not discouraged by lots of stuff. Overseas is getting cancelled bike. Races teams are getting out of specific races. That are Italy close all schools until mid March or something. It's Pretty Yup. Which is people from? Milan cannot go to certain events. In stadiums they're banned because blah blah. They can oldest ride their bikes. Maybe I mean you can't really get close enough to somebody on a bike to contract something from if you're out you're out you're hedging. There's a guy riding not medical advice like it was a yeah. It was a Mimi that a guy who was riding with a pool noodle you know to give the three feet thing and it said Corona Corona virus on it. I was like yeah. That could backfire. Because I'm just run your fucking ass over Language language people language like. Oh that guy's say that anymore. I'm sorry about that so We we talked a couple of shows ago about the whole dirt rag empire. Yeah going by by no more Maurice Unfortunate But the dirt rag dirt fest is living on as the Ray Town. Mountain bike fest. Oh so there's a link in the show notes it's in that same area in Pennsylvania where they did the dirt rag dirt fest so if that was the thing that you like to do you can probably still do it. Only under a different moniker. Or guys or whatever coming through thumbing I'm thumbing scrolling foaming at Tony and I have both been writing this City physio saddle from edge cycling. I was GONNA. I'm like Oh yeah. He's headed out. Tony's headed on longer than I have but I've got four or five rides on it now and I. I mean it's starting to grow up gets a little getting used to but You know if you if you want to settle that quite frankly even though it's not val girls still sticks to your ass. The settle doesn't Yup. Your boss will not move on. It's an I have noticed that I have to mount my bike just a little bit differently by Kinda living my butt up and over this adult. I threw my leg over tonight and caught my pants leg going over but I I've been putting with the tilt of it just a little bit in the foreign after judgment and it. It is pretty sensitive that stuff but I gotta I think I got a dial on the bike. It's on which was my most comfortable bike. So that's got a lot to live up to and as far as a really really like it. I'M GONNA throw it on whatever I ride for the Rewards Rois Twenty four this year which I realize it's still months away but I think if I put it on drop bar bike I would be a little bit. Would be a little better because the bike. I've got more of a bike packing setup it's like you're at a forty five degree angle. Maybe you're not like like gravel by right you're not more leaned over where on more of a road bike set-up your body's going to be more leaned forward and. I think that would help it a lot. I do too. I say. Give it a try but I'm going to remove it after this week and try and get the Get A D. slip applied I ever covered. Yeah our buddy does vinyl wrapping and he thinks he can wrap this rascal so cannoli tune in next week. Yeah Lord can only and funny in but you know it's a US company in Dayton Ohio or somewhere over that way somewhere in Ohio. And I. I'm glad that people are doing stuff and making things in the United States America. And it's reasonably priced right. Yeah it's like one hundred bucks for the version and ninety five for the steel and one hundred seventy for the no one nineteen ninety. Yeah we've got a link in the show notching. Go CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF. W. It's secret shopper. Here a neat show. It's a totally new design on a saddle and it's kind of cool. I remember the Half Moon. Saddle from a long game. That'll be little Little Mustache free. No that was a different one. This one was a it was like basically like a half moon. Well yeah and I always wanted to write it with the Moon Crescent the other way the points facing forward when you're supposed to turn around the other way. I'm like I know that. Get to ethanol off my bike. Yeah at least this saddle. Looks like a saddle a somewhat unconventional saddle. But it doesn't look completely out of place on a place to put your boat Urnov so give it a go. I'm sure they'd love you to try it on you. Absolutely give them some feedback to because they can only improve it at lake wrapping it in something and slippery yeah. He said that he thought they could change the formula of whatever the plastic materials on it is and make it a little less alker like yeah that will turn out like Christmas vacation like Super Super Lube. We I was trying to put something on it. I didn't know if I could put some like shammy butter on it or something or doesn't really tried. It doesn't work. I'm not putting on Spandex just so I can. That was that was one of these. What's Spandex Mike? I'm not wearing? I don't even think I own any anymore. Never going donate SPANDEX. I have short liners. That are meant to be worn undershorts. But they say don't wear them without Steph over them because they show your junk in junk and like I ain't Sean my junk and honor where you can do that. No one care. Maybe there's a couple interesting underwears people at. Yeah there's yeah not on attractive. Young Lady The borough single sling thing and stuff like that but yes there are some ladies that were some very provocative outfits and we'll keep you thank you ladies underwear rides starting up again. Yeah should be coming up here pretty soon. Jake as GONNA appreciate this. The bill Murray Gp Fat Bike is now available for preorder for how much Fifty eight ninety nine full suspension though. But it's on orange. I'm I'm about to reach over this table and smack you. It's cheaper than most full suspension bikes out there. So maybe unless you get of ETON GREET WITH BILL O. That's worth about that. Would Buck Ninety to be Sam? Okay Yeah Price Tag. But they should put that in the thing. Preorder yeah copyright mangle shot. It's fifty eight hundred dollars for each there. You go just to meet and greet access got. I think he has Note Card to say that at the unveiling. Yeah yeah there's The the Oh every week. The electric bike industry just seems to just keep popping out crazy Harley. I sent jet linked. Today I did not get a chance to look at it. I saw you sent to come out with a whole new line of electric mid drive electric bikes. What was the in the URL? It said something about a logo did Avenue logo now to for it I can fully admit I didn't read the Article House seemingly sent it to you. Here is the other cool. You should keep my e bike There's a a yeah I am aficionado. Heard should also look at the other link that we put about the aluminum bike. That's two pieces. The frame is two pieces so the assemble the batteries and then put the frame together intact well at their aluminum two piece aluminum frame. Can you get the battery out again? No well it's Taqwa. He'd have to break. That's why I think we should make. I'm not going to spoil my idea for by all right. Patent pending pending so next to stay on topic here We do have the surface six four the new version of their e. Fat Bike actually shipped. So we'll be in the review Rotation here at Fat Hyphen Bike. Dot Com. That's all keep an eye out for that. I sure Tony will be one of the main reviewers of it right issue. I want to show at the hill. Getting to the top of the hill. They're folks it's all downhill from here right today. Courtesy of autos is revolution brewing. Out of Chicago's everyday hero session. I'm a big session. I pay family man. It's good session. Ip Revolution I leave everything. Revolution makes man. They're they're good people over there. They have a shit ton a hero bears. They're all there's all kinds of the anti at home in my fridge right now. They've got lots of heroes. This one is a a nice four point three percent. Abc Session Usable USABILITY and low on the international a girlfriend units as what does a modest thirty five. That's nice rates and eighty at beer advocate. That's just a sullen girlfriend. It is completely. It is so good and so nice then. Go while you're in there make sure you open over the sink. These might've been a little bit happy when I opened them. So just good good bouncing with them. When you're driving three bring three. We drink it twice. Either that or they're Somebody's shook him up in the in the truck on the way here or something just to make sure and There goes Tony to the beer refrigerated or not that Don Don don so in other reviews stuff we got some. Dvr shoes that came in days. Eight dvr not easy dvr. These are a high top Sub Twenty Four. Oh I believe is actually the name of the shoe so made for sub twenty four hour. Overnights maybe Oh. We can't wear other shoes. You have to wear these apparently so I just got the box so I haven't even put them on my foot says yet and if indeed they fit my forces they may go on. Mike. Switzer'S I don't know what's is what do you have nine and a half. These are forty-three which is about nine dealer. Take in your European sizing Malaika.

I'm just like whatever okay I got the I think it was like twelve and a half or whatever the right thing is okay shoehorning like Geisha for the get the train feet in there yup but dealing with the blowback. Apparently of are they old beers. Tony what's going on? Or did they being jubilant after fears as don't shake them up before you open them The other new thing in the review rotation which I'm super excited about is the new version of the old Man Mountain. Rack now that Robert Axel Project bought the company. They've made a bunch of changes and I've been using old Dan Mountain for many years. Seven eight years. I don't know and I still have one on my CIAMPA titanium fat bike which I will be replacing with the new model and I'm excited about it because the way that this thing mounted before put it pretty far forward and if you have a foot much bigger than my size. Eight and a half. I think he'd have some clearance problems and the new mounting system pushes it a good five inches back four or five inches. I'll have all that information when we do the review but now all they do is have a box apart. Scott to put it on the back. Is this a backer arrear? I don't yeah. It's a front bracket backtrack. It's going to replace the one that's on there as well as what went on the fork. So yeah yeah there. It's a cool setup. I think they did a lot of good engineering's and whatnot and we'll make sure that we got lots of pictures so you can see all about it coming up down the road. We'll have a first look at it real soon and then a longer term look it later on after look at it long term. Long speaking to that dangle Jimbo fat bike Chubby.

#93 - Open Banking with Nathan Coffing
"You're listening to the identity of the podcast. This is the show that talks about identity and access management and making sure you don't who has access to what let's get started. Welcome to the identity at the center. Podcast i'm jeff. That's jim jim. Hey jeff how are you. Oh not so bad yourself. i'm good. I'm conservative mike. Ask the little that i have left and driving my guess kausar car when a lot of concern gas but You know. I'm living in the southeastern united states where Our guests supply has been affected by two things one is cybersecurity attack that happened on the pipeline that fuels a lot of the southeast. In the second is by panic buying everybody rushing out the up their tank all on the same day. It's the same thing that happened. You know read after covid where everybody had to rush out and buy toilet paper volt things. Yeah i saw a picture of you. Feeling gas tanks and putting them into the trunk of a car or something like that Maybe make a few extra bucks on the side here. The good old american way capitalism that of thing we all knew her bunker so actually you bring up the pipeline thing so the latest that we have as of wednesday may twelfth recording this. And this'll go out into the internet in all of our listeners on the following monday seventeenth That it's is that the pipeline hack may have come from the exchange vulnerabilities that were widely touted. A couple months ago. I think was back in march. Or whatever means and yet again patching didn't get in place and wasn't remediated in here. We are another ransomware story in our. We're seeing prices on gas. Go up because of that but also because of the economy. I think starting to open up a little bit here in the us. So i guess. Keep those systems patched while. I think you know a lot of the rents were attacks. Are you know eventually. Boil down to basic blocking and tackling. We talked to dark jas cunningham on the show a few months back and you know he mentioned that these types of attacks are moving downstream not that utilities and kind of core infrastructure is a far downstream. But they're going from new government agencies bags down to you know companies that haven't seen themselves as prime targets in the past. But i think what you. And i have seen a lot of organizations. We work with is that they're understaffed. And you've got a lot of You know not enough people running around trying to keep up and they're doing yeoman's work and there i m heroes but if they don't have the tools like mfa everywhere There's only so much that they can do. And so you run into these situations where nobody wants to end up on the front page of the newspaper. But the certainly what's happening. Yeah i mean job security. I guess right Human arrogance involved and people start to You know fall behind. I think you know one thing that we see a lot. Right as underfunded undermanned. Understaffed teams Really doing heroic effort to keep organizations as as best they can but they can't do it all the can't do it forever so something to certainly consider. Yeah well hey we we've been talking a lot about That by the end of this year. We're hoping to be able to do some business travel again. It's there's nothing like a year of no business travel to make you miss business travel But i think you'd agree that probably the faith business travel is conferences because we get to see and interact with people in our industry Hopefully when that starts up again we'll get to meet a lot of the folks who listened to the podcast. But i had an interesting story and that our guest today Is somebody that. I met at a conference at actually. A couple of four draw conferences. That i can recall one of the cool things about four drop was especially in the early days. Was you know the location of some of their conferences. In a lot of times. The two that i'm thinking of in california which is such a beautiful state but the a soul mark conference center it was like a pine forest right on the woods and our. I'm sorry read on the beach and it was such a cool place to be. And the other was at the ritz. Carlton half moon bay in the bay area and while i mean could pick a better place to to go for work trip. Yeah i enjoy going west for that for for conferences. i'm california guy side like it So speaking of our guests. Why don't we go ahead introduce Nathan coughing he is the head of strategy at cloud entity. Welcome nathan to the show. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me really really glad to be here. Thanks for going to the way. Back machine There's those are wonderful conferences both technical point of view as well as you know the the atmosphere actually phenomenal idea sharing in kind of growing the. Im states yeah. It's fun to interact with folks I do miss the conference thing. I you know i never thought it would say this. Is i miss being in the line to get onto a united flight scrambling with two hundred other people. Trying to fight for overhead stays or under under seats bays may be so maybe at some point here in a future that will resume. I know we're gonna talk today about open banking and how that has started to. I guess we'll open up right for organizations start taking advantage of But before we get to that. I think it would be helpful for the folks who are listening to kind of understands your journey. You've known jim for for time in prior roles and sort of You know the maturation of your own career. But how did you get into the im space. Is it something you chose or did you choose it. Well we gotta go in the in the way way back machina. Back to the netscape planet. Days where i was. Actually at at boeing working just in the cyber side Building you know some of the initial firewalls and then Son shows me somehow not sure how they got my number but apparently there was. There was data sharing back. Then that required some type of consent right and I got recruited into the planet Sun alliance or the aol sun alliance and then from there just continued both in the identity space as well as cyberspace So it's been about fifteen years doing just identity on hop back over to the cyber side becoming one of the joining one of the first couple dozen employees at perv Back in two thousand eight two thousand nine And then really saw kind of this inculcation. This need to bring cyber together with identity. I think that's one of the core. Tenets podcast right. It's identities at the center in whether that's the center of your application security with the center of your user security becomes a fundamental part to building out your next generation of applications. Sorry to give you to plug guys. But it's too easy right definitely love that i love. Hear somebody about somebody. Sure in this industry because usually they started off somewhere. Like i don't want to say the bottom right. But they started out somewhere in conduct the guts of the machine that you started off with the netscape directory which of course kind of like core functionality. But as you know more or less the backoffice and now you said you're chief strategy at cloud identity cloud i'm sorry cloud entity and i'm wondering if you could tell us a little bit about that role so lewd to it right in that that Previous a monologue. What we've done is we've looked to bring dynamic authorization And when i mean when. I say that is bringing a lot. More context recognise cyber context. It could be consent context and push it all the way out to the edge of the service and so we started thinking. How can we start building product around this Looking at micro services. Api led infrastructure Back in twenty fifteen two thousand sixteen in that rolling intelligence on top of it but she learning as much better description than a but know is more more in vogue to use those words he stays So what we started building all these pulling these different pieces together right making sure that we could have adequate data sets adequate rules and adequate policy. Decision points At the edge of the service and as we've built that you know started getting believers both in the marketplace right meetings early adopters of our technology as well as believers in the in the vc marketplace and underwent a first round of funding last year. As part of that you know. I of shifted out of the the sheer check point of view and really moved into you. Know how can we leave the team out. We start building a bigger broader team. And we've been able to bring in some incredible talent on both from people running in the off circles as well as other. Im platforms so nathaniel was kind of wondering When you go to a prospect is something. They've sought you out because they understand. Your technology are usually going through education process. So i i. It's actually really transitioning over the last three to six months right. So part of its dudakovic part of its due to the adoption of distributed services. But what we're seeing. Is that as people move into the next generation of services. And whether that's cooper nettie mash or functions they have no idea how to bring identity constructs into that much less cyber construct and one of the big goals as you're building units nick jarred services the victim immutable rights. How can externalize identity authorization in privacy. Make that incredibly easy for developers So anytime i bring it on new service. It's protected by default set of rules. So if we think about identity for the last two dozen years right. What's been the hard part it's always been on boarding applications barna and now you're starting to have the capabilities to automate got onboard. Right make it. Very very seamless. Second board ten thousand services in a matter of minutes salonga zor services. Api driven You're able to really start driving innovation forward and instead of becoming this kind of tax it happens after the fact you're able to lead the digital transformation. I'm gonna make these parts easy for you. We can even talk about that from a customer perspective now. The reason that we have opened banking at the center. Discussion is because that's really one of the first mandated regulated regulated areas where. Api's have to be the center. Meaning the first real Api centric transaction requirements coming from federal bodies or government regulatory bodies depending upon the nationality. So we're talking about open banking here a little bit I guess why don't we start with what is open banking because i think people may be using it and they don't maybe know it right. I think of services. Maybe something like plaid where you're connecting different financial services together or i think you know into personal capital. You know. there's a bunch of these out there that lets you. Interface and Pool financial data right into third party. Apps that aren't necessarily owned by the financial institution himself is that a good explanation of it or is there. Is there more to it. You're you're hitting on the core tenets right and it's really about the democratization of of of banking right so i can build. I won't be a bank. We'll be able to build a service that consume bank data. And then the second aspect of it is the utilization of privacy consent right so obscene. Gdp are cpa things of that nature kind of bubble down on a on a larger industry basis. But then open. Bank has been very very explicit in the flows. Here's where i need to consent to what. Here's how fine grain that consent that consent should be and we're also seeing that start getting out percolate into some of the different standards bodies right so you know we've seen just in the last Sixty seven months is a grant management standard pop into the loss into the standards bodies and that's becoming increasingly important because everybody you know every user now wants to understand where whether data goes are tired of seeing the the facebook cambridge analytical examples the data breach that just happened last week or the week week before last. I'm sorry you know where your pi no authentication right for us or for another service a no authorization and the only contracts protecting public data meaning my my birthday. I'm not even my birthday first. Name last name my address and then a the invalidated birthdate right. So you can program Api perspective you can programmatic ago and just download all of it right in literally iterating all the way through it taking public records. Gina pulled from the dark web. Or maybe you have you know From paradox or something like that right and just boom boom boom boom right. And now i've got everybody's credit score number and that's data me. I'm sure it is to everybody else listening as well. So i think one of the challenges that i've seen having been a consumer of some of these surfaces is the inconsistency with how they may be implemented and i think of things where You have to go into this interface you type in your id and password for the target financial institution and if they have mfa in place or some other type of second factor that you need to provide It's a very sticky situation. Sometimes where you're waiting. It's almost like they're doing screen scraping behind the scenes. Sometimes and it's frustrating for me as a consumer right trying to get the kind of keep my counseling How does from an emmy not knowing enough of how it works between the open banking standards and that had been developed and companies. Who may be aren't using it. Is that a symptom of up. A poor implementation of is as you know how it works right now. Or maybe they're not even using open banking and that's why my experiences so poor so if they are scraping. They're not using open. Banking screen. scraping is a security vulnerability right. They're doing persecution against both. Probably your banks standards of conduct as well as even even their partners standards of conduct that you're that you're logging into that's been kinda facto right for the last half dozen years right. Have we seen. Financial aggregate is really come to fruition. Now that's changing because of open banking right literally. Everybody realizes that's a big problem. So how do we start to normalize at how we build common patterns around consent and around data all right flows. So if you're seeing screen trippy for seeing that delay. You're probably not in open banking in open banking ecosystem and you don't have security. That's wrapped around opened banking. Now i'm gonna go back to your earlier point jefferson. It's a lot worse than we actually think particularly over again. What i mean by that is. We've got all of this identity in authorization sprawl depending on when you're when you're on your application was billed right. It was a two thousand eight mobile app. Or maybe a twenty twenty mobile app probably have a different. Adp you have hard coded authorization you have hard coded privacy built into it even those different services different applications from singular bank. Don't talk to each other. Well now the banks are also trying to fix that and kind of a little bit better user experience but i can jump within some of the credit bureaus. I can jump from service to service the service they'll have to reauthenticate. I'll have to re authorize. Have to grant consent because none of it's stored outside of the application it's all hard coded in there in. Nobody has any good way reporting now. That's obviously a tremendous liability for the banks the credit bureaus etc for any of the financials because they're storing different data in anytime regulatory body compensate. Show me you know proved. That nathan allows you to use his account. Data prove His last name and they have to go and say okay. Well i don't know why policies look like right. I've got to find the developer that wrote that application developer has to go back to more than like the developers in another company. Our right They have to go back into the code try and pull Extracted and then showcase exactly what transpired right you and i. I both know that. It's almost an impossibility right. The reality is is going across all the different systems and platforms trying to showcase. Exactly what happened within a transaction is a lot harder than it is to explain so being able to externalise that normalize it right and then use a common authorisation privacy identity standard across all of them. Well that's exactly what a wath was designed to be in what i mean by that. Is we saw a wealth. Annuity she kind of popped out. Twenty twelve twenty eleven two thousand twelve depending upon which one we're gonna count by in the design there was let's separate context Separate the authorization construct away from the identity session building right but what we saw the industry do is. We took kind of these big monolithic that we've been using for wham for the for the thousand. Let's layer on top federation you Sandwich layer on top wa- threat looks later on top. We took a monolith Through another model with at right we built kind of these giant construct. That are difficult to use difficult to upgrade in aren't meeting the needs of modern application developers until elitism. That what happens. If we go back to the original intent right what happened to be thinking about authentication. As a session generation then there's all kinds of great context that comes from your authentication provider and then authorization and application identity. That's a whole separate construct. And then when i want to move into finer grain authorization or want to move into finding consent management are wanna layer on top. You know open banking based regulatory demands. Knocking do that very very simply redican spent open banking. Api's in minutes instead of saying i've got to build this giant sandbox have got up my servants. One point compliance. I got all these different things which could be man months or even years you know. I'm curious because i highlighted my poor experience with not having open backing in my life so in your mind and you know. I'm curious what does good look like from an open banking implementation can. Is there a a gold standard example that you can kind of provide. Say if you're doing it right. Here's here's what it should look like. What's the process as a just a normal customer trying to collect my finances. So i'm gonna do one better than that and i'm gonna talk about the goaltender that we've seen already in the uk and so this company called sterling bank. Obviously we're not removed from north america so much. But what the millennials in is. I want all of my financial services and this is not just banking and moving money around but also home insurance car insurance life insurance right all these different financial services available in a singular portal and by using open banking now sterling bank has created created at portal for gen z annexing tremendous account adoption because of what they've seen is a tremendous boon right To to account adoption by third parties in by additional new customers. Because now they have kind of this comprehensive ecosystem they never have to leave that sterling banks portal through able to see okay. I'm willing to sign up for these different insurance different retirement funds different investment means as well as do their regular banking all from singular interface. And it's completely changed the way that people interact with them. And that's what you know. The account aggregate or is that the men's etc of tough stroke striven to do in north america but without having kind this common symbiotic methodology of exchanging data of protecting privacy of all of these different fundamental features of banking. They're just not able to get there in a secure manner. Sounds to me. Like the millennials and gen z are You're driving the demand for open banking. Would you say that's accurate and You know i'm kind of wondering about the value proposition for the banks. Is this something that they wouldn't be able to be to enable these financial agritourism secure way or is it a compliance driver so it started as a compliance driver will. That was a two part question. Let me start from the beginning right so first of all you know gen. Z and millennials are the first digital natives. Right jen's even more. So than millennials meeting. They grew up always on internet's everywhere. Services should be everywhere so they're looking for distributed services in the best user experience possible that means pushing the service all the way down to the edge of the millennial or the edge of the gen z at right. So my phone's gotta be able to do everything in that circumstance. So we'd look at banks seem banks. Banks are responsible for where we are. Today what i mean by that is not just technological innovation but innovation across infrastructure etc. Right banks have really stepped up to the plate in the last five thousand years. I think the way to say it right due to the exchange of money in helping us build the world as we know it today And so when they first started adopting open banking. You're right absolutely you know across the bear. It was literally you know. It's another regulatory burden that we have to kind of pass through. But we've started that transition where it's no longer seen that because not only getting better engagement from the customer communities but now they're getting much better visibility into how their services are are being used. What is being called. Who were their biggest users. How are they transferring money you know what other partnerships in what other services should they package and integrate that are allowing them to better monetize the customers So all of that data that very rich data that now. They are allowed to have because they have. The appropriate consent is also the date of it's feeding back into a circular loop of better services which are able to get into to offer out to monetize into build better customer adherence. Have you seen any differences in how you know. The the pandemic has affected uptake of some of these services around Getting open bank open banking off the ground and becoming more digital. I you know less touch and you know i. I look around in my hometown. Where i'm mary where i'm at and i c- bank branches shutting down right. They're just they don't have the physical presence anymore. I can't remember the last time i went into a bank. I have been digital banking for at least if feels like ten years and that's probably the trend for the future. I see a lot of those bases being re for other things wants turned into electric car charging a spot because they have the marketing. And you know no one's using it. But i'm curious if from your perspective having worked on this much more closely is if the pandemic has driven this Any more than it probably would have gone already. Just the natural flow in of aleutian of services Or if there was something here where covance here and we've got a kinda speed this up Than we were planning on doing your bang. Honor i i feel like that was a softball because you know what is cova. Done to push work from home. It's pushed distributed services out everywhere. And whether that's you know upgrading your vpn into his eta Podcast last or whether that's offering services out in a very distributed fashion in a very integrated fashion out to your consumers to your partners to resell right. Both of those are driving at lightning speed. You know you're right. We don't go into any branches anymore. I mean even starbucks after order online right then it can go pick it up from a branch. But the the reduction in touch interaction i think is a fair way of saying dacoven has really pushed net new digital services a net new ways to engage with your customer base out into the marketplace. I'm thinking about these Open bank api is and i'm wondering are banks. Deploying the api's bolt onto their applications and their citizens or they deployed the api's and then building their services on top of it. I guess i'm i'm getting at that. From the standpoint of the security being layered at the api level right of seems to me that if you're building apps on top of it you still want to put that security at the api level so broad question guesses are the banks themselves using those api they're deploying and then why is securing the api level necessary. Okay lots of questions. So let's just parse it out one by one by one right so when we look at open banking. I'd break it into three major fundamental steps so the first is building. Api driven infrastructure. This is where you'll create a net new. Api through apogee or acts way or one of the api gateway vendors to your back end services right. Let let's step one on. That is just to participate in an api driven ecosystem which obviously open backing us. One of them step two is bringing in that security layer rights to open banking has designated fatty a which is financial. Api standard put out by the idea of the open. Id foundation That mandates a number of things big things like pair wise identifiers right so shared secrets essentially easy way to think about that. Mutual -til s between client server a secure software assertions. Right so you have a signed certificate. Says i can be a client of this service Or or the the fundamental pieces right so they have mandated a gold standard for api is easiest way to think about that. And i think that should be carrying across all industries because we would have the experience problem right just related back today if that was in place yesterday right now the third step is that consent factor and i think this is where things start to get really really interesting because consent has kind of changed rather dramatically in the last five years right so sort awful. Gdp are we got all of these kind of blanket consensus a pop up ad or the top of banner. Saying i am consented to my cookie. You know take all data store cookie here and capture my p. And everything else which we all hate but it seems to be a necessary part of using the internet at this juncture right. So that's been around for a little while and that was kind of the start. Of how do i mitigate gdp our needs That's a very blanket. Base can set. The second is the oh based consents. Right that i think most of us are familiar with this where going to facebook facebook says. Hey i want to see your first name last name phone number. I'm going to do whatever. I want it right. I'm going to store it in. You know it's gone from you now. That's the second one and it's definitely not fine grain enough right because there's no real consent there's just take my data and do whatever with it now. The third one which opened banking's introduced is really consent. That actually happens before the consent that is. I'm going to consent very fine grain consent around this account with this transaction idea. I'm gonna consent sending it to this third party right. Misses where those third party providers in the aggregate is really come to bear. And so what we're seeing is very disconnected approaches to consent kind of again based upon that sprawl. We're talking about earlier. Might have the blanket consent. You might have some thoughts consent but musher in. Ob ecosystem banking ecosystem. You're not bringing to fruition though bank content so elite honestly brought all those together right so you had a common model for consent that spans. Those three different types actually four type as wild Dive down the rabbit hole to go way. So i have a common model for understanding what is consent to organize. Ation is well as have consented to an organization to share about me and that can go and revoke manage. I can give you can use at one time. You can use it seven times for thirty days. You can use it for twenty four hours right. So i've gotten very fine. Green controls round hallam willing to share my data out to an organization in how that organization has to treat the data going to third parties Sorry the rest of your question was where should Api security lie right and so the very interesting thing about api's is something like eighty percent of the internet. Traffic is now. Api driven right and you have to think about api's as machine to machine right service to service because that is the fundamental underlying slow right and whether it's going through my My ipad right through an apple ipad. It's making an api call back up to wells fargo or to to my back and that is a machine to machine communication so we have to start rethinking identity so we've always thought about identity as a user identity right super easy and how to authenticate users. We can do that very well although we don't do that very well. But that's a that's a different point of discussion. Now when we start thinking about identity of machines right got two different aspects of that got workload identity and this is the carbon right. This is my function that spun up for my kuban. Eddie's note are met communities pod. Sorry that that. I just spent that kuban. Eddie's pod register is interested in something like sto our service match. It'll go get its own. What's called Iffy server sporadic service provider identity for everything Which is an x five of nine sir. Essentially that's giving a very short term. Oftentimes it's ninety minutes to two hours identity down to the workload now. What we've done is we've also broker debts. We can take a specific identifier now assigned a service identifier a client. Id down to the workload. Identity brought those together and now we have a much better way of governing a user accessing service identity which is tied to a machine identity. So i have independent client. Identities are now tied to different workload identities so every instance of my service it spins up has its own unique identity instead of now instead of the old way which and an api key right that was shared across one hundred different services or thousand different services. Even now i have individual x five nine shirts. So if i have a breach i can know exactly which individual instance it was as opposed to my service got breached. I can say this. Service instance got breached. I'm going to rectify the audit logs for that as well. This sounds pretty specific to me. no one thing i thought as you're describing that the framework which included in banking you allow kind of the open banking thing. I'm just kind of free silent. Your it sounds very much like a framework that can be used across industries. Which i think is what you said. But i was also having the thought that i think you know to put in a wealth parlance. You're talking a lot about Allowing certain scopes at kind of put me into the mindset. That thinking of when it comes to that i mean that's almost functionality and security so you know especially from an authorization context but that's really like the quarter functionality of what is happening here gyp jimmy right so you know kind of putting it into that. Illescu parlance right. So what we're talking about. Thus far was all like aloft client credential slows right. How am i going to get a service to a machine identity. Now when i start talking about how am. I going to authorize data and whether that's privacy related data no be grants or even other data that might be ti at it might not be pi. Those are the scopes that you're talking about. And so you know what we've done and not to toot our own horn too much but as we built governance around those scope so as a developer have governance that covers. Exactly what's going to transpire. So when i register a service. I can no longer ask for. Hey i want that full john. I want the full us record. I need all this data in less actually need right and and that's very different way of treating it So i i just use this metaphor on the open banking world congress just last week but what we're seeing is that i write for the last decade has been called the new oil right Whether it's harvard business review or cio monthly but it was really becoming as the new co two right. because we're not able to control it we're not able to constrain it. It's propagating wildly because we're sending these giant jots or did these giant access tokens from service to service to service. No idea where the data goes right might get dumped it assists logging pumped out to another another. Api that were unaware of it might go into any recording platform. Right might go to a rogue service. No clue once. It's out the door so by actually doing governance around the access token that's being minted right. What are able to do say service. I can see the full user record service speaking only seek first name and transaction. I d i think of all the things that can go wrong from a security perspective. When it comes to api's and then you toss in like facebook wanting to be having access to financial your face others no way i'm ever going to allow facebook to be financially connected to the rest of my stuff but that's just notorial comment From a security perspective. What is the worst thing that could happen if the open banking. Api's religious api's in general aren't properly secured. I mean obviously there's theft right. someone could intercept and still money. I think of Attack if you're fan of office space where you're maybe developing. Api that you know just takes fractions of a penny right from a bunch of different accounts and you know you. You hope you're never caught. What are some of the other things that maybe aren't as noticeable from a security perspective that that people should be concerned about and drive towards making sure that api's are properly governed are properly secured in being utilized the way that the they've been designed to. Yes so that's a good question and you know it's actually relatively scary like when we start to talk about it because if i look at what's driving my tesla its api right. It's calls from a service on my steering wheel and my accelerator down to you. Know the the central control panel and then talking to the internet somewhere. So what can what's the worst case scenario. you know. Well somebody takes that over. And we've seen we've seen act many a time already I think dodge tesla necessarily dodge and other ones have had their auto drive features. Api attacked We saw that mercedes. I think that was the end of last year It wasn't a heck of a driving system but it was a hack of the data coming through the bluetooth platform right so so it's not just personal but you're actually livelihood right can be impacted and whether it's a heart monitor in iot device or whether it's the car that you're driving right it's not doing. Api security right is going to fundamentally put you at risk. Put your organization at risk for not just you know financial liabilities. But potentially you'll livelihood of people. Yeah i think about that too. It's it's a connected world and if a human designed it that means that there are flaws in it and there will be ways to break a systems as they've been designed. I know that you've been very generous with your time with us. And one of the things that we've started to do is kind of close out with maybe something not so. I am so that we're not leaving a heavy note right. Try to white in the mood for the doom and gloom of of not Having is being secured and all your money stolen and facebook watching you Jim came up with a good one. I'll let him have the honors Jim once you go for it yet. But before i do that jeff i wanna remind you are fractions of a penny. Have you seen a penny dish at the communion toward there for everyone right community pennies little office space Chatter if you will so my non i am question be and this is really timely. Because of my guests guzzler that i mentioned earlier Noname question is what is the coolest car you've ever owned. And i'm going to start with nathaniel. Oh i got a two part answer on this one too. So i still own it so i have a seventy seven. Bj forty which is the old landcruiser But the bj's diesel designation. I imported from canada on twenty five some odd years ago. So it's kinda like a jeep essentially That's incredibly low geared seemingly. Drive up trees. Although i would never heard a tree second one would be Ns one hundred. So i've got a fifty to one hundred that's in my garage. That's i mean it's pretty to look at and that's more my wife's car but i bought it for. There's a tough question for me to my first cars like i love this. So much was sixty. Nine ford falcon with dr rotted winter tires so in other words he's tires for like if i stepped on the gas. They spun and left a black streak behind the left. A bunch of smoke because they were just like just so old tires and everything but thousand fun car. Seventy two nova s in college. I drive a mustang convertible now But i think the funds car i've ever owned was i had an eight. Vw van again with those types of popped up became a tent and have a full sized bed under it and full-size The back seat folded down to become a full sized bed. Had a kitchen and a refrigerator in it. I mean it was like my hippie mobile so that thing would Everybody loves it was a conversation piece. The only downside to will the to downsize was. I mean the thing broke down a lot so it was in the shop about as much as in my garage The second thing is a was a gas guzzler so gases sheet. That was no problem but when gas got expensive and like experiencing right now we're gases non existed in my part of the country That was not the best. So with that i already know what jeff sensor is going to be. So go ahead. I'll pass the jeff. Well okay so. I'm not a car person at all. I'm more of a. You know the techique nerd so of course. My answers probably not going to be surprised but is definitely my twenty eighteen tesla model three absolutely that vehicle absolutely perfect never had a problem with it. at least no major problems right stuff that you know little things here and there but it is so much fun to drive an electric vehicle. Not i'm a tesla fan. Just because you know they were the ones that that came out ahead of time and the one that was available. When i've been waiting on that one for a while. So i guess you could point that my maybe midlife crisis car but i think it's fantastic. I have not been to the gas station in. I don't know at least six months. Maybe even longer mostly just to fill up my wife's car and i haven't you know i i can't remember the last time i had to take care of an oil change or anything like that. I mean the only maintenance i've had to do on it is putting in windshield washer food. And that's it so i absolutely love the tesla just so much fun to drive and you know. I think it's not. It's not specific to tesla right. The quick acceleration in the torque that you get from an electric motor. Most electric cars are a lot of fun to drive in. It comes down to probably the conference that come around it but yeah a absolutely is my tusla That is my pride and joy and I'm already looking forward to my next. And whether all stay within tesla brand or maybe look at something like a year. We're kind of talking about this last night. My wife and i around you know maybe the ford mustang mach e which is i know there is polarizing whether you should be using the mustang name for electric vehicle But it looks pretty sharp it and seems to have some some pretty good metrics right. It's i'm going to go. But i'm going to go with my tesla. That's that's my jam and it's a lot of fun to drive so i think that that's probably a good spot where we can go ahead and leave it We had a pretty good mix vehicles there. Between trucks and hippie mobiles and mustangs tesla's. I think we covered really the the wide variety vehicles. That could potentially be out there Nathan thank you so much for joining us and and hopefully people were able to get Idea of kind of at least if they. If they aren't familiar with open banking you know how they might already be using it and not even just be aware of it but how technologies and standards are developing to make life easier to be able to manage finances and you don't in underneath at all there's identity right it's part of this process etc. I will have a link to nathan in the show notes if you wanna connect with him on. Lincoln obviously can connect with jim and is there as well.

Crystals for Healing the Empath Wound: An Interview with Rachael Shaffer
"Welcome to the love and light. Live podcast empowering crystal lovers spiritual entrepreneurs to learn and experience the art of Crystal Healing. Get ready to listen in and join our crystal movement. Hello and thank you so much for joining me for the love and light live podcast brought to you by love and Light School Dot Com. I'm your host Ashley Levy and this podcast is the number one place for all things kristaps in today's show. I'm really excited to bring to you an interview with the Amazing Rachel Schaefer. Rachel's a healing practitioner and she's also the owner of urban 'em path and I'm going to be discussing with her what it is that makes an impact. What makes someone an impact? How do we become? Empathic what are these common traits and qualities? And how does this actually affect us in a not great way right? There's something called an m. path wound and Rachel's going to discuss this 'em path wound and how we can actually work on healing that with crystals. So if you're someone who's highly sensitive person who is empathic and sometimes that is challenging or difficult which it can be for some people right. I mean think about what it means to be empathic and picking up other people's emotions and energies. It can really kind of take a toll if we don't know how to deal with that in a constructive way so I'm so excited to discuss all of this with Rachel today. She has some amazing insight from her personal experience in her work with others. And I can't wait to share this interview but before we dive into my interview with Rachel. You might be really kind of resonating with this idea of being an empath. Alight worker. A healer and I'll actually be opening enrollment for my crystal healing certification and Advanced Crystal Practitioner programs very soon and I did want to share with you a story from one of our previous alumni from Kimberly G. and I'm so grateful to Kim for taking the time to chat with us and tell us about her experience in the program. If you are empathic if you are interested in working in a deeper way with your crystals and stones than I would love to. Have you join me for this program but I want to hear about it from a firsthand student experience and really learn what this is all about? This is Penn a passion project of mine. For years and years. I've certified a few thousand crystal healers and it is really the thing that brings me the greatest pleasure in the world. So I'd love to let you listen to Kim story about her time in the program and then I'll be back with you for our amazing interview with Rachel Schaefer. You know I looked at programs for a number of years because I've been involved crystals for about five six years and I you know it would Komo when the time when you guys were signing up the classes and stop there was actually someone else that I was going to sign up with. And then I don't know how I came about across Ashley but I can remember talking to her talking to somebody on Messenger and they would ask a question and I would ask a question. They would answer. And so the one thing that I've really liked about the WHO is the customer service is phenomenal in. Oh and even Ashley like you can instagram. And like she answers. So it's it's like even though it's quite a big program is just that it just feels very personal at the customer service is really good and I work in human resources and went into DC era. They are now even offering courses on Hugh on customer service. So it's something that's really lacking a lot. There is not that connection and I just thought that's what made me do and in fact I think also there's lifetime access to the program so like I took it this time but then as it gets updated them stuff. I have access to all of that. The He gave me lots of options to Work on my intuition that something. I'd I hadn't trusted for a long time so that I really noticed. I've gotten a lot better weather than I pay attention to. Those synchronised cities and things like that In fact what I've started doing as I keep I have a book in accurate in my purse. Some I have it sectioned off into three sections and one is if I get a message The Second Section session section is What happens what's the Oh come of it and then third one is i. I'm doing stuff on dreams as well And I really like the other thing that I really like what actually did meet a lot of sense to me is. There's so much information out there but crystals and what each of them you know what they mean and all this stuff and I really liked how she said you know you take the crystal and you meditate with it. What does it mean to you so I have a book and I do? Update that When I do it do it. Two or three times a week with With a new crystal. If I get one and then I'll look up meeting. What other people say this? So that has been hughes the practice I took on right away. really been working on. S- crying and using my intuition with that and I had a really hard time probably before the core started with meditation. And that's something that I've really worked on. That's really helped out with that and I think the other thing is with adult education. It's like there's all different kinds of learning styles so the way that this information is presented all was it. Would everybody would gain something from it? No matter what type of learning style you are. Well I notice I can talk a lot more but crystals now and No-one Talking Committees. To how much information's in my head. And I don't think oh I don't know that much but then I get talking about it and it like knowing the names of and the properties and all that type of thing Now what I did with the courses I kept up with of course both sec an ACP. I kept up with it week by week. I never got behind button. I mean it's pretty fast. Moving in there is so much information rate I finished in. I guess it was October. And now what I'm doing is going back through the core slowly and making notes and actually making binder of things I would do with clients so right now. I'm working on all the shapes like think about all the shapes of crystals it's actually amazing What kind of mean? It actually means a lot when I'm going back through it going out okay. The light bulbs go off. I also When I buy crystals now Got Cue cards and I keep them in a filing system so that I can kind of pelote information but The other thing is I know ashes talking about this recently one of her. Qna's I kinda hyped in because it's working on my shadow work. That's something that I've really been paying attention to and doing that. I think it's really really important Cutting cords getting rid of things that no longer. Serve me so that I can feel myself with things that are my highest lebron highest vibration vibration and highest good title. Live life more consciously and bring that stuff to the surface every day. It really helped me get more intentional with a lot of stuff. was a really fabulous group. I mean a really safe place. I mean nobody talks on their negativity. I never I never saw any of that so I mean you could talk about whatever you wanted to know that people would answer. Your answer may comment supportive all those contain. It's really neat to hear what other people are doing in. The community is is really inspiring. The oh I could do the hatter you get kind of ideas. I've actually met a couple people on there that I kept in contact with We have very similar interests. I think The personal attention is really important to students. What I right down here. There was always something going on. There was either podcasts or pose or instagram or the live Q. And as there was at crystal sales it gets. There's lots of different things to get people interested so I think it's whatever you wanted. You could get out of it if you ask questions. I mean a couple of times because it was all electronic. I had questions especially at the beginning. When this raid right able to find stuff people always answer questions got act to you and I mean you guys are all over the place. I mean what might be a workday for like twelve thirty where you are in? It's three thirty where I am right. So it's amazing it's from all over. The world like actually even did something that the day on instagram asking people to coast where they were from people from all over the world. It's unbelievable and Just lots of suggestions like defend the national book the Bible. I bought a number. I got so A that's always really nice even You know she's been setting up her office space at home. She's kept everybody on along with journey and ask people for. What would you like to see here in? And she makes a point of saying you know somebody mentioned about a tree so this is. I couldn't get that tree but I did this tree so I mean she. She does look for that. Take that feedback. Like she asked for. It was nothing worth right. And plus she you know even when she has the live things. You guys are on in supporting her. So it's a tight team in. I mean the fact that you guys would go away and take time to do training for a couple of weeks. That's pretty awesome thing to do as a team right because that set relationship building and So I the whole thing. We're really really well. I tell you since since taking the course also even set up my office here at work so I have crystals and I have things hanging from the ceiling. I have assault lamb and I haven't fuser and sometimes staff on I'm in office. They'll come in to say. I JUST WANNA stand in your office for a minute. So whatever's going on for the rate the obviously earn having a very time at some point it makes a big difference and that's what I surround myself with on a daily basis so a lot of the stuff matched my own values while as I said there before like I'm now making that master binder In some of the things you know when I went because I went through the class. It's pretty quick moving A some of the things really really resonated really strongly with me and I. I don't even have to go back over them. I automatically. I just seem to know the right like the crystal ballot because the talk rebalancing and that type of thing and I think just the ability to know that I have that lifetime access to it and I can go back and check things out But it really helped me take look at where. Where am I going to go with this and so it? It really helped try to. They could help me starting to figure things out of how I'm going to use it. I've started actually moving forward and doing some things kind of putting myself on there which I wouldn't have done probably a year ago So right now I make crystal cards and I'm selling them in store and I make crystal ornaments and I sell those. I Made Crystal Shadow boxes. I have those for sale. I'm signing up for my first spiritual fair in February. That's a huge step for me. Just like enormous And I think along things. It's like the values that this community and all this has taught me also made a lot of changes to my own personal life Organic eating Looking at cutting boards looking at the shadow work of course was an expensive course and I have a girlfriend. Who's into all healthy eating and stuff like that? She says you know you're worth it. I think that's what it was about this. I know so. It was a big commitment for me. But it's just like no you know what I'm just going to do so and I'm about to get my Reiki. Master just finished a professional cupping courses well and you know what you projected to the nurses what you get back so that. I mean those are just a few of the changes I've made in the past year right all while taking this course and I don't think I would have done those things if I hadn't of taken the course so it's really really beneficial to me. I know for me. It's the best decision I made in two thousand nineteen right so I mean I do I never even once I signed up. I knew it was the right thing to do I have never looked. I have never regretted at all so that is probably the biggest thing I would say like if you keep coming back. I don't know for me. I mean I had watched a number of programs over the years right. I really thought I was going with somebody else. But anyway ended up picking Ashley and I'm really glad I did and I have just never looked back. It has Like there's so many things about the course that are so interesting. There's so much information even something like the history of Christmas. Which is you know. History is Kinda boring. I never like that in school. But it's really interesting if you're into crystals and wanted to crystal healing I I just think it's a wonderful modality and despite what a safe place to do it in such a positive place Yeah I just. It has not been any regrets while in a big. Thank you again to Kimchi for sharing her story with my Crystal Healing Certification Program.

Us thank you. I'm it's such a pleasure to be here. I do yeah. I'm really excited to talk to you today. Is We are going to be discussing. Something that I think is going to be so pertinent. Everybody who's listening on the PODCAST watching this video. And that is the journey to healing the path wound so I was wondering if you could start by telling us a little bit about your own journey and how you got started doing. This work absolutely It it's a long journey started back when I was maybe five of course starting before birth right but At five years of age I started playing classical piano. And naturally I became sensitized. My Energy System Right. When you use it becomes fluent in a language you start to soften your as and kind of get into a meditative trance and I felt my crowns. Chalker opening didn't have the words but That was my I had the sensations and it felt like it was happening to me and that was in my physical body so it felt like someone was touching my head basically Would always run out of the ruin. That would happen so that was the start of me sort of having the sensitivity to energy In school years of classroom settings will get me disoriented. I was over stimulated constantly And I still didn't know why I lacked a sense of belonging And and then it wasn't until I moved to New York New York City from Pennsylvania to to attend a musical theater conservatory but ended up making a slight detour into working in a medical school bookstore. For a time and there with that was new camp for me. It was the first time I heard impact. It was rightly Union Square area of New York City in pit of probably the most famous bookstore. called east-west living snow longer there but it was very famous And I had no idea how to protect myself. I was constantly dissociating from bobby because it was so intense and I began handling crystals daily when I hadn't worked with them previously while I learned to respect. This is super interesting to me. 'cause I actually had the really similar journey on story like I really started open up when I started working in metaphysical bookstore. So that's really cool. That's how your journey. So where did it kind of go from there like once you realize that there were these people out there called How did that kind of evolve into you discovering This this whole journey for yourself in like where did it lead you in your work currently At first I thought I labeled myself right at first it was a label and I see that it went. Well it's the plight of the path in this is what I've been dealt and through Inner work Working with manage worse Working Crystals Essential oils all. These vibrational sound you know. Patents had this affinity with energy and ability to tune but that's also our weakness right. It's our strength and our weakness in that. We don't have a solid and salt. We don't embody easily. Oftentimes we get in mashed with other people and being an impact in and of itself is not a world It's a psychic ability. But they're the the core cause of it. Kanye wound I'm still discovering more and more about it as I as I go along But I'm learning that the most significant aspect warned boundaries because our ener- energetic boundaries are very chorus and the wound can develop one. We're still an egg in in our mother as she's a fetus it. Can it can start at that at that Depending on the source depending on the source of the wound it can be a breaking the bond with mother it can be growing up in a very tumultuous environment and having to predict so we enmesh emotionally with others and it becomes a very strong skill dissociate from needs to be good. So how'd I nece wound? Or what does it look like? How does it manifest in different people's lives and I imagine it can be quite diverse? But what is a few of the most common things that you see related to this idea up the path wound? Yeah it can be a complete disassociate disassociation from physical Barbie and his experience. On Your Plane. It can be Being completely on neglectful of our own needs and not even in tune with that not even in touch with them the needs of others. I it can be this unspoken agreement that I take care of you with nothing in return it can be I show up and my role is to feel the emotions of the room and I just feel all the emotions particularly in healing settings right. If you if you see the people in the room that are the ones crying and processing all the emotions they may be emotional impact either just signs of how it may show up it shows up in the physical body it can. It can be related to gut health right if we've leaky gut that that is the physical location of course boundaries We have issues related to the Sacred Chakra that can be with the emotional national. That's the end result associated with a feeling of not being enough. I have to do more apt to give more myself and pulled us out of whack. Because we're not listening to our own needs so as the wound then itself like that lack of boundaries set era creating between yourself and others is at ah lack of boundaries in your emotional life like no matter. How it manifests is that really kind of what's at the core or is there something more to it that it that's at the core. That is the core of the world it's Not a solid sense of self Not a solid sense differentiation I take on your emotional pain as my own and I don't know the difference. Frankly oftentimes I take on your physical sensations. You have a wound. I can take on the pain and I carry in my body and I feel this obligation. It's unspoken it's on unconscious most of the time I carry Correo. I heal it for you in. That doesn't work doesn't work but we try. Yeah no matter how much we want it serviced to others and care for others we do need to have those boundaries in place. We do need to have that separation so once kind of recognize first of all like you mentioned when we first started chatting that we are impacts and second of all that we may have this wound. How do we actually go forward from there and start to heal that in our own lives? That's a great question because there's so many different paths for me. It started with Ricky. It started with Brady. The reason It the reason it for me it started with Ricky was. I happened to be working at the center and I experienced break-up and for an emotional impact who's completely associated with their partner that was devastating because I know sale. No sense of myself without this person I had created this whole future myself. So that's co-dependency right. So it began with Ricky. The first time I ever felt fully embodied the first time I ever felt station of You know energy being cleared out of my system that was carrying. That wasn't mine so when when we are doing this like healing from the Half Moon. It sounds like a lot of that. Work can be energy healing base but other other avenues for other types of 'em has like I'm just trying to think outside the box year. Could it be through creative expression like writing or arts or could it be through something like gardening? Hiking connection with nature like are the or these different types of avenues depending on the person or do you think the energy healing specifically whether it's regular aromatherapy are crystals or some other former vibrational therapy like which of these do you think is The most beneficial or does it depend on the person. I think it's so individual and everything has resonance and I think that's what we specialize in them has The part of getting to know yourself is the vital part. So if inside of you have this. Acidity with plants there Judith or law do Doctor Judith. Orlov's she writes a lot about impasse and teaches. She talks about Plant and pads. He very in tune with plants and herbs and even food. So it's it's really a unique path for me. Dancing gets me my body. Anything mind body because we can't forget the body you know we're when you're a tuned to the infinite in your closer to the infinite The physical world becomes less Manageable and that's really what we're learning to do is still be the infinite being that we are and manage the physical world as well with all of its challenges and then like you point you point out something really important which is just like really understanding yourself more as a person and I think that if the at the core of this n path wound is lack of boundaries than it makes sense that anything that gets you to do more of that self discovery and understanding who you are at understanding maybe or that lack of boundaries comes from in working toward healing that that's like at the core of how defying more balance and be more in alignment with the universe is an impact in. Sounds like you've really done in your own journey through your exploration of these different healing modalities and You mentioned before we started talking that one of the things that you work with pretty much every day as crystals and so I'm wondering if you could share a few of your favorite crystals or the crystals that would be supportive of 'em hats as they're going through this process of healing the impact won't absolutely crystals are also a unique relationship There are ones that The properties are on paper great pads. But it's such a personal relationship You know you'll you'll be told work with Black Termoli. Jet Excellent Rep has selling is great and you keep on physical pain. It moves it right out of the body just put on a bunch of Solo. Ninety two now liberate out. I've had that experience. celebrates one of my favorites. I have my whole house. You know. there's a huge grade of CELENA. You know it's also personal You know there was a time where still learning the properties of crystals at this edifice will store and I was telling I was proclaiming. That malachite is so grounding right. It's like what a grounding stone and the other people there were actually crystal experts and that was not my expertise so they would wanNA customers will come to them. grounding stone. You didn't tell me that they'd be like no it's not it's not really rounding stone but for me. It was because it's about emotional. Release you know healing emotional trauma and if you heal that. It does become easier to be bodied so for me. It didn't become a grinding stone So there are these indirect influences with crystals malachite is huge for emotional impacts That became a huge companion. Our take with me daily For boundary work I sometimes just carry a big citrin. I I also have Sectarian it's one of my favorites carrying that now. We're speaking right competence and speaking I carry Lapis Lazuli for communicating boundaries And I have ruby right now for vitality and grounding of the sound so supportive to for all the different ways this half moon can kind of manifest in your life and I love what you said about this really kind of more personal journey personal connection your crystals. That's very much in alignment with the way that I teach like. You know it's interesting to hear you say how these crystal experts at this story worked with now is not really founding stone. But I'm more out like aligned with what you said like it was grounding for you and that is what is so valid because that is your personal truths and that's part of your job and your relationship with your crystals and I really appreciate you sharing that Now I did just on a regional like one of the things that you do.

Everyone lives probably for the better one hundred percent yeah. We want the healthiest in our teams but you know what I'm so grateful that we weren't. I had the best time in those years. I loved being drawn control. I had a great time when the dogs flow. I think I wouldn't be the person I am today with those experiences so I'm grateful for my partying years I think they shape and for me that they they do and I think it's the way to look at your past. Isn't it everything up until now is made you the person that you are yes god I love it. Wardi doing doing like two minutes so I want to talk to you about. Maybe you your interest. I find you fascinating person from a French side but also just from everything that you do online nine. You started off as a producer working in radio TV MTV presenter and now I would best describe you as an environmentalist. Would you take title. I will take it if you're giving it to me. I'll take it yeah. I'm really really passionate about our planet. I'm all about kind of living is consciously and mindfully as I possibly can in order to make sure that we can be here as long as possible because we're very lucky to be here and it's a wonderful place and let's try look after it's been a crazy old journey of how to a lot of career changes over the past decade. I've been fortunate enough to have some really amazing experiences I started to M._t._v. was an intern and worked my way up. I guess I kind of learned how to to do everything that I do now. In those years I learned how to write a script learn how to edit video lionheart to do an interview from some really really talented people and yeah just kind of started going with both the way that the world was pushing me I started presenting and I was so set on it but the presenting world has changed a lot. Now you know reality stars of taken over and it's not so much about the kind of presenters that we grew up watching the not fool presents is the world's Alexa Chong's Jimmy. Jamila things have changed and I was pushing for something that I don't think really wanted to happen so is pushing for kind of the traditional T._v.. Former and as soon as I accepted that the Internet was where Harrison and content creation is where it's you know Youtube and one of these incredible platforms tastes may toys lucky enough to work with thinks she started going better for me. I think I started enjoying my work more in finding my voice and now in a position to talk about what what I'm passionate about and honestly it's because I stopped her sharing with the current a little bit more but would you say your passion from the environment started from your Johnny veganism because I would say from a friendship point to be you really started to think about the planet violating what you're putting on your plate. I actually I don't know if we'd spoken about this but me and you want the Wilderness Festival probably about four years ago and you like Oh this week. I've actually just eaten Vegan 'cause we. Festival food is amazing for big food so we're eating quite pumped base that weekend and UNICORNS being vegan. We can say what tell me more so yeah. I started really thinking about what was on my plate. This started. I started thinking about what was I think at a younger age catch a lot of awesome people. I was thinking about my plate in terms of my diet. I had a disordered relationship with food during my teens unfortunately but again I'm quite grateful for that and then I had to learn how to fall back in love with vote and learn how to nourish myself properly and you really she helped me with that Cherie and then as soon as I discovered veganism I started learning about it more watching more films about it really more books about it watching Vegan bloggers on youtube and bloggers thought while this job dog tooth and you see that scene o.`Neil called I messed up babe. The lifestyle really really appealed to me and I ve very quickly realized that this isn't about me anymore. This isn't about how I look. This isn't about the calories calories or the fat or the protein. Whatever is what you get your protein? This is about the planet this is about the animals and to me that was the biggest release in the entire world and it was also just this access to this whole in other words. I'd never seen before. I thought like the wool had been lifted from my eyes and suddenly I started seeing everything in a completely different way then went to university and had amazing modules all about feminism aged twenty. I couldn't have Kadlec's I was like I just WanNa go and party. I don't care about feminism there. I become Vegan a few years later. Suddenly I'm really interested in feminism. It just got me interested in so many different things yet but the main motivation behind going Vegan was definitely the ethical and environmental connection. I think it may be stems from my love of animals. I grew up in the countryside. I had pets had guinea pigs so there's always an animal lover. It's all to do with the ethical environmental side issue about to say about how much she loved Guinea Pigs and E._d.. Talk about them quite a lot charlie chocolate. The Guinea pig will forever be in my heart. He was the best thing in the world and yeah I didn't really like humans that much I was I was all about the animals in the pets and had guinea pigs who oh I loved very dearly. I'm sure they loved you something. You've been talking about on your social. Media platforms is about the fashion industry which is something that I never really thought about. I really understand the impact of veganism and food waste aced fashion and kind of fast paced way of shopping and consumerism is letting the is also greatly impacting the environment almost just as much fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world. And I learned about fashion because I was talking about my Vegan Diet on Youtube and someone said hey if you care about the animals you should look into the fast fashion that you're wearing because you know I was on TV where I felt like I had to our new out for every single day and then I was obviously doing Oh oh T._d.'s on instagram and felt like I couldn't outfit repeat and I just hadn't put two and two together. I really knew nothing about the fashion industry. I think we're so disconnected from who made are close where they're made the resources that takes how water-intensive it is how toxic it is. I just haven't put together and I then decided to do some research expenditure of time reading about it and I watched an amazing documentary. She called the true cost what she can find on net flex if you're new to this May that your first point of call to educate yourself. It's a brilliant documentary and again like veganism. This is why I always got bit nervous. When I hear about a new thing that's to do with kind of mindfulness mindfulness and consciousness remember when I first met someone to retreat who zero waste we were having strawberries and she was like Oh my God i haven't heard stories and months because they come in plastic and I was like <hes> tell me more? She started telling me about being plastic free and I was like actually stop. I'm not ready for this because as I know what will happen and that was a couple of years ago but I'm quite like this as soon as I hear about something like this I call back and that's what happened with veganism and then this happened with fashion so at the end of two thousand seventeen. I decided that I would stop buying clothes so I spent the majority of last year. Just celebrating my old clothes I rearranged my wardrobe. I tried to understand exactly what was in it how to start it in different ways and also get myself to a place mentally where I felt more comfortable to be wearing the same things over and over again and to be okay with that and to be talking about that and to be celebrating that and actually the mental clarity you get from that this kind of like relief you get from sticking your finger up to Zara I actually sleep found really rewarding and then when I wanted the dopamine of something new I would take myself to a charity shot or vintage store but I think we can become quite distracted by the labeling especially at the moment you know sustainability is on everyone's minds and it's definitely top of the agenda in the fashion industry but it's the same as one piece of food is labelled as organic or gluten free when something is labelled in that way it doesn't mean you have ten of the mortagne of of it or you overindulge you know when I should says it's organic and sustainable. It doesn't mean you buy the whole show. This is really about conscious consumption and mindful consumption so yes I was still buying things last year and I went to charity shops and vintage stores but not often like I really just by my consumption massively and I know this what we as relatable necessarily but I also stopped saying yes to P._R.. Gifts and gifts from bronze. I felt like I just wanted to declutter my life in every way imaginable and it's really lovely one abroad wants to send you something and that's great but yeah I just wanted to be conscious in every single aspect of my life so stopped buying fast fashion altogether. Uh became very conscious of the fashion I was consuming and then yeah in terms of just like everything my beauty regime my hair regime p._r.. Gifts Goodie bags. I stopped saying yes to Goodie bags. All of this stuff became an overarching thing but the reason why I'm so a passionate about it when it comes to fashion is because so few of us are aware of the issue and it's also so easy to be sidetracked by the incredible marketing of some of these brands h do such a fantastic job of selling us this lifestyle dream with their conscious collection. They make it look so appealing those models a beautiful S._R. The`real the Color Palette is just so kind of the there are so many plants and it's also kind of claim looking you know it's clean and fresh and actually it looks like the woman who has that wardrobe would have a very organized structure declawed wardrobe which is the aesthetic was after ultimately when I want to start decluttering but they're still making hundreds of pieces of product every single hour and they're not paying their workers fairly the good that they're doing. It's great that they're making some good steps but it doesn't make up for all of the wrong during during the same you know they've signed up with this could regain the way you give your clothes back. You unwanted throws back via this but in return you get given store credit and it's the same with h you can bring in a bag of clothes sized H._M._o.. It is very clever. You can big body flows A._T._M.. Where they don't even have to be close and will reward you and I am doing an inverted commas? Bonnie is Joey Toribio anything right now with store credit but there's no reward in that that's just encouraging the consumption with so removed from where our parents were you know fast. Fashion has completely changed how we shop and not for the better in any way I'm feeling feeling very frustrated at the moment because one of the things that I get asked about the most is sustainability and sustainable fashion for the privilege only and I spoke about this with Livia firth on my poker I because to me she's the queen of this when she spoke about it. Brilliantly unfortunately fast fashion has made it so clothes. Don't have the value that they need anymore. It's not sustainable fashion as expensive. It's that fast fashion is so cheap and that people are so used to buying new all the time and it's addictive right shopping is addictive and I think we can shot while on the Lou and I'll be there the next day to make us it fantastic and I think the addiction is probably something that a lot of people will have to address before they make the changes because I I think so many people who are addicted to newness by saying I'm kind of like you said about dopamine hit that you guys I was the same I was one hundred percent the same honestly I've had ACIS opened as a tab on my laptop talk since the age of nineteen and it didn't close until two thousand seventeen I would always have my basket open always have saved items because it does make you feel better temporarily when you feeding a bit low. You've had a rubbish day. When you buy I something you it makes you feel pretty good for a little while but I think I wasn't getting the same sense of satisfaction that I used to and I was coming more aware of the fact that that sense of satisfaction wouldn't stick around longer than an hour hour and I think that's to do with generally trying to become a more mindful human through meditation and Yoga and learning about spirituality? I was realizing that actually buying something new and getting that dopamine hit doesn't isn't fill me up in the same way that hanging out with a friend would or going for a cup of tea with my mum words or even having a phone call. They don't fill me in the same way that they used to these experiences with consumption. You you do have to drastically change your habit. That's why I do actually think you know not keen on the detox word but I do think having a detox in terms of your fasching consumption is a really good way to reset yourself. Could you set yourself a challenge of not buying any new clothes for a month. Breath then. Could you do two months. Could you three months. Could you instead club together with a couple of friends and hostess workshop. Could you try a rental website. Could you just go on Ebay once a month instead. There's other ways it. It is totally about reframing your mindset but I think it's a really really rewarding thing to do. I think all the what you've done is definitely made me rethink the way I contain passion to be honest. I've never been a new outfit of the day kind of girl or fast fashion person I do. We'd like shopping buying clothes but I'm not doing it on a weekly even monthly basis however I have been much more conscious and I think we spend so much time on a source or whatever online website all mooching around Zara whatever and you could spend that time that you said before in a wardrobe having lacquer oh I yeah I've caught those trials. Actually that looks really good but the top so maybe it's about time that you might have spent doing that. What treats shopping experience a wardrobe because we've all got those outfits that if we reject or put with something else it fills Brian me? Do you feel hopeful with the fashion industry because it's a huge one to take on. I I see is this is a soldier. It's kind of like game of thrones and you'll Khalil see I had such a good thing I don't have management honestly because I recently met with some manages and they were like yeah. Cathode battled gap and about what you're doing because obviously like I am shutting down so many work opportunities because I'm calling brands out. That's effectively what I'm doing but yeah. I feel like I'm on a mission. I feel like I have to voice these these concerns and opinions I have because my motivation I'm not here to make a Lotta money and have a brand partnership with misguided. I'm here to do my bit for the planet. That's what I fill my motivation and the reason for me being here is do I feel hopeful. I feel really conflicted about this. One there are two ends of the spectrum on the one hand. There are some incredible organizations legislation auditor's. That's amazing things happening in the fashion industry. There are some really really clever. People who were doing brilliant things not only in house it runs but also in factories however on the other side the spectrum there are big brands cashing in on the sustainability Hashtag. You know it's great. This is N.. Ability is trendy but it's also way of bruns making more money and it feels new sustainable brands popping up every week now again how awesome that there are so many brands doing things sustainably unethically but we need to be mindful of how much consumption is being encouraged the really really brilliant sustainable brands who would in the game for the right reason why we telling you to buy new things all of the time often the product will be sold out for a very long time something that you won't and they'll be encouraging new maybe to just by one pace and they'll be encouraging you to make it last a lifetime the sustainable in inverted commas bronze lookout for the ones who seem to have new product or of the time. It doesn't seem to be sold out. This is the problem with it. They don't need to disclaim name when they say like Oh. Something's made from dead stock fabric as a consumer. You call really find out much about that dead stock break. I don't know there's just a lot of loopholes so ultimately what it really comes down to get our psych which which brands should I be supporting all of these questions. Actually the best thing you can do is become a conscious consumer and only buy things that you absolutely adore things again and make you feel beyond say and things that you're going to having your job for a really really long time. That's actually more important than whether something has been handwoven by lab-grown worms from heme. Yeah you're right because if you buy those leather dare sorry say that maybe aren't made ethically are made from animal products but you after twenty years six months of the year then is that conscious consumerism. Yeah I think if you will top shop and you find something that you absolutely absolutely no of and you thought you were going to have a lifetime. Go forth my friend rather than buying something with a sustainable tag that you might only wear for a year. It's better to treat something I think as if you're going to have it for life you know having less and having better quality of things that we love I think is of higher importance to touch briefly on the Vegan so this is the main problem with Vegan versus non vegan materials. You know a traditional pair of leather boots. It's going to last a long time. They're going to wear really really well. They're going to stand the test of time and the same with world are wool jumper. You can have river and it's going to biodegrade unfortunately with the vegan alternatives often made from plastic so jacket will not biodegrade for thousands and thousands of years because the plastic so then it becomes a really interesting question of pay. Were you ethics. Are you doing this for the animals or you doing this with the planet personally if I needed a new pair of leather boots and I use the words need and new very casually because I don't think either of those things were about most imported but hypothetically if I needed new pair of leather boots writes I would personally prioritize vintage pair of leather boots than I would a new pair of Vegan other boots just because I think we should be prioritizing pre existing clothing and accessories and fine leather goods because if you think about all of the clothes in the world we don't need anymore. We're inundated with clothes and shoes. It's unbelievable. If you think about how much you have in your wardrobe well how much I have in my wardrobe and then times by all the females it's crazy. We don't really need to be creating more so this is why the priority should be. Let's champion preexisting vintage secondhand drifted rented lent loaned swapped. That's the priority but I also don't want to take away from the body and what the sustainable browns. It's all doing because they are doing really really good work and they have great messages but I think I personally think we should be prioritizing. Yes that's already here. I had a really interesting conversation with a girlfriend. He says that she feels his pressure within her social group of friends new out for every week when they see each other and they older how many there are six of them say all have to turn up in a brand new outfit and I actually had a conversation with obviously inspired by and I said denotes what Reagan borrowed from Blah Blah Blah and she said that she has actually stopped and had that conversation with her friends and now they're much more aware because I think it's one of those things where if one of your friends feel obligated but we've got to we're having these conversations nor hair on the hostile on instagram but within our friendship circles because actually often that's where you're spending your money because you want to cool to your friends like that is kind of what people do nowadays uncouth instagram. As well but on the whole week dressing for other people so it's important to be speaking to your friends and Instagram fans and followers about the fact that you are wearing old outfits and you're not consider trying to shot me because because hopefully it won't be about this brand new talk all be like how old is this tall and that will be the kind of cool currency will be kind of. How old is your clothes? This is exactly what I started the triple T._d.. Hashtag all of the day because I wanted people to celebrate what they already had and I wanted people to k to be talking about the fact that they'd had this jumper dress pair of socks for years and years and years because I think there's something so cool to not you know if you've had a jacket that's it's been handed down from your mom and your sister and our you've got it and actually you've added departure. Maybe a badge MMA gig that you went to suddenly this jacket has an amazing story and how does that. You can put your friends about the story of this jacket. It's so interesting what you say about how we dress for our friends and we dress for the people. I think there's so much truth in that and you know that's not to take away from wearing our clothes in a way it was still obviously you know when you put an on it. Of course it's view you WanNa make a statement with our clothes. You WanNa tell a story with our close. We want to hide under the radar will acquire. Maybe we don't want to join any attention to ourselves that they maybe we do. Maybe we've got Mary Kay and actually out and we want to have a bit of a flower teeny with someone at the Office are closed definitely tell hell stories and they show characteristics about ourselves and just because they're old or because their thrift did or because they're from vintage store doesn't mean that there have any less value in fact my opinion there of more value because they have more oughta say absolutely I wouldn't to move on to other subjects but before we stop to fashion the lasting onto which is passed it because I love a bit of Jim Gear and I would probably say I try right exercise at least five times a week. Wow Oh you managing. It doesn't mean like Jim. I'm taking a walk in the park or something as sorry. Let's Rephrase Jim Gif I times so and that is being washed every single there. I understand that is leaching micro pass ix into the water. which is Dan going into our water supply oceans? I the water that we're drinking right now. Yes is that correct that is correct so some fibers don't leach as much but yet the classic nylon fibers. Do there are some ways you can handle this first of all. I don't know how much of a clean or dirty person you are totally up to your discretion. I'm trying to wash wash my clothes less at don't think smelly I think all right I mean I try to wash my clothes as often as I used to. Try and get more wear out of them before I eat them. Then you can buy guppy bag not these costs about twenty five pounds. You can get them online where you can get them for zero waste does don't overfill them. You can put your clothes in them that just like an hour to buy the commercial close in Lake actual micro fibers that Mike fibers done elite so that's a really really really good alternative and then I'm Harry more more about washing detergents that you can just white on or spray onto your clothes that are non toxic and that means that you don't have to wash your clothes in the washing machine traditionally lucky words. This is what blows my mind active west so many sportswear brands are fast fashion but because they're sports where they get away with it. No one calls them up for being forced when they're churning out so much product it's crazy but I think that's because we were active where we wants to make it goes straight in the washing machine but the majority of the materials they're using environmentally friendly the very kind of nylon heavy but there are some really really lovely active web runs doing good things and making really reach for products my one of my favorites his girlfriend that Golfing Platform Graham pieces so beautiful they are really quite sustainable and ethical but it's almost impossible to create a fully sustainably made peace about d'ivoire just because you need that Spandex e stretching scratchiness that you go to very traditional yoga studios and they only have caught them yoga leggings and Yoga tops and I know that so much the environment they just don't fit in the same way. There's a reason why SPANDEX CONVEX and kind of plastics have been put into Jim because it just hugs you in the right paces and it doesn't fall down to your Thong is an and Yo. It's actually the one place where you really WanNa feel confident in you right. You don't WanNa feel thongs coming out and Mike. I totally totally get that but again I think I just have less active wear and I've just held onto the pieces that make me feel already go. I'm better just re wearing them now because really the only person who cares if you wear something something law is you no one else re because especially no one knows no everyone so in the head in the gym or WanNa Walk in there because whatever they're doing something you speak really openly about very elegantly. Elegance is your relationship with anxiety and things that have really helped you. Do you remember when you first anxious yeah I do. I was about five or six and I can't get they need stomach aches after lunch and it wasn't too with my digestion when I was at school and they would basically anxiety driven stomach aches and my mom would have to pick me up from school and she'd take me to the doctor and the doctor doesn't nothing role and there wasn't anything wrong. They didn't realize that it was just anxiety. I carry my anxiety and my stomach is so many of us do so I've had it really almost for as long as I can remember I think it's just part of my personality and part of my temperament and then as you grow up and different things happen things make it worse and being on TV for the first time having never really properly been on camera before definitely made my anxiety worse and triggered certain things and again maybe that will do with being in my twenties. Twenties generally quite challenging decade begets a widow thing having anxiety. It's definitely a journey. I never feel like there's GonNa be a solution or a cure for it with me. I just have good weeks. I have bad weeks. I just have to do lots of things to keep myself in check. It's frustrating a really try and be accepting of it and try be grateful for it because ultimately Jack Harry said this to my post so brilliant he's had anxiety is a way of your brain telling you to slow down. I love that I'm so often I really try and be grateful for it but in another way it's very very frustrating sometimes be so crippled by it that you can't get out of bed. You're stuck stuck on a sofa thinking oh my gosh I have all of this stuff to do all of these people to please and I have to look after myself but I'm just crippled by this. I do find it very frustrating. What are your coping mechanisms? What helps you manage it talking about it definitely because it's so wonderful now that it's not a taboo topic anymore and even if someone that I'm friends with someone in my view even if they don't suffer with it they understand they understand that they just need to chop me through it the best that you can say? As someone who suffers a variety is you know pay. What are you doing right now? Took me about where you are kind of. Make them really focus on the present. I have lots of practices that I try and commit to every single day. I try and exercise regularly like you say it's getting outside and doing a walk in the morning. If I am going to be working from highway morning I'll get up and go for a walk so I- meditate every single day without fail regular exercise trying nourish myself with good food if I'm stressed or I've got lots of work on that's much easier Zia said than done but I really try and take care of myself. I try and breathe offer. We're not breathing and limit my time when social media really be conscious of the Times where I'm comparing myself to other people it's a really interesting journey having anxiety and that's what it is. It's just like every day is different. Every week is different. Every month is different but I have to be grateful for it because again. It's may meet the person and I think it means. I've connected with more people than I think I would lived on because it affects so many of us it does. I think it's really nice hearing you speak about it because from an outsider's perspective they'll be like Oh my God this girl she's killing on social media. She's got this very very hot boyfriend. She is really passionate and she really is going for and she's doing so well and I think from the outside perspective of for people they don't see that vulnerability which you do have so it's so good that you show it because I think with all got things going on no matter what the kind of external what's going on day to day life so I think it's really lovely. I wouldn't say that I've ever experienced periods anxiety up until the last few years so I was anxious at school pretty. Oh my God you're so chilled you literally in the freezer. No literally knowledge that you are literally in the freezer. Watch you do spend quite freezes freezes because of cooking but you always relax yeah I would say on the whole have relaxed temperament but I would say the only thing that makes me anxious is social media which I think is probably something that makes a lot of people anxious. We're not used to seeing so many people's lives whatever your weak spot as you can compare that to someone else doing better than you at whatever that may be and I think that is probably something that a lot of our struggle with and you have sat up offline forty eight which is fantastic is a kind of hash tag that is inspiring people to switch off their phones full the weekend so that we are not getting bombarded are all members of the day with seeing the people's lives <music>. How's it going? It's going great so over Christmas. My boyfriend and I decided to take ten days of line where we turned our phones of ten days and we are bit fidgety with the first couple of days and then we just went into this Hayes of Dreaming Amina. We absolutely loved it. We were so president we slept so well. We got back to the root of life. We got back to how things are supposed to be. We got back to a time where we weren't living through our screens and we're both content creators ultimately we shower lives online and so having that time off is super important but what I didn't expect was it to become a regular thing for the past seven weeks we have started this thing called offline forty eight and it is basically a challenge Angela. We encourage followers to come off line with us so we turn off owns of every single Friday night and they don't come back on until Monday morning. We actually take over forty hours off. It's the whole weekend and we're doing it because we don't think that we can talk about mindful consumption consciousness low-waste prompt base living the environment. If we're spending so much time on our phones these devices that we're using they're not environmentally friendly. They use a lot of power a lot of electricity and a lot of energy and also living through our screens isn't mindfully consuming in any way so we have made this commitment. Come off line yeah every single weekend and it's really really really wonderful. We can have taken on a kind one of a new energy for me. I know a lot of people when they hear about this new. Get two reactions you either get. I don't actually spend that much time on my part. I don't think I'm pretty good with my phone fine coal great good via keep it up. All you get the Oh my gosh. How do you do it? What about if someone falls ill? What about if someone needs to get in contact you? There's a lot of fear that comes up because we ultimately were addicted to our phones coming of line. Taking part in this challenge is actually an art and letting go. That's what it teaches you how to do and I'm not going to go into details because that will be over sharing but I have had some stuff happen over the past couple of weeks that means that I should be nervous about being of my phone during the weekends but actually it's just about preparing you. Tell people what you're doing. Maybe that means you buy a brick Nokia thirty three ten and give that number to the special people in your life who in case of emergency and you show up when you are expected to show up to the engagements that you've worked in prayer and in case of an emergency if I really need to have my phone in my bag I'll turn on if something happens but yeah generally it's actually very easy and it's really freeing in the olden days ultimately actually really everything I'm talking about. That's what this is all about. It's about getting back to the roof. Everything its getting back to how we used to consume where inundated with content with fashion with gluten written free with whatever is hit classes coming out of our eyeballs just so much and actually this is about having less please if you're listening. If you're still here join us for forty eight just for a weekend. We do every weekend this weekend next weekend tiny phone. It's the dream I love it. Muddy join US do anyway. I'd been doing a full day because I never really posted a Friday and if my avid fuller's would never ever for years haven't just never have been good engagement day for me. I Work Fridays and so I've always on Friday but I've not done the actual switch off. I've just done it mobile the side of the rim but I think too switching off is very interesting so if we look in your handbag or backpack what would we find okay so usually it's about pack girl of practicality while it and I'm going to say well it just a card holder. Don't carry cash what I'd always gets annoyed about that reusable water bottle keys headphones nice to see Persson poll how `bout utensils because I know you like to bring your own lunch. Fox in bamboo folks knife date needs to the when you eat our outs if they give it to you and say plastic containers obtained you can pop into that yes repack my bags and I'll take with me on that day those the borough central's as actually usually carry a backpack so if I do shopping I always have stuff and I don't mean clothes shopping guys you know that by now if I wanted wanted by an apple on the way home or wherever I have a bag to put it in if we're going somewhere like a street face or some all we know there's going to be street food or potentially. We're not going to be able to finish off aid. We'll have containers Norberg bombie utensils nup kin zero. Erased Kit. I guess just to create less waste and then it's also a good way of Max taught me this gathering any compost that you might have like an apple core whatever John just like throw on the Ben. Keep it in a low jong compost it. When you get yeah ready for a quick firearm my God yes? What was the first thing he did? This morning. Hugged Max adults narcos favor of Meiji all the heart that it's not the standard red heart. It's the kind hunting pack of cards obsessed. What's your hidden talent? I am a brilliant terrible dancer. I think I remember being a fantastic dancer up for the Bay City or country country thumbs on knickers is all different times texting or talking talking Meditational Yoga. I think meditation chocolate butter on that bike rider uh-huh Taxi Tara. I really don't okay I don't like I don't like being on a bike as radio waste of you. I know so that's why I went taxi but like obviously this is an electric taxi walking the walking everywhere first perty crush George Michael. If you had a superpower what would it be. I really want to be invisible so I can go impair in other people's houses and have a little snip around the first place. I've I was Buckingham Palace. How does that uh the royals would just be fascinated to know what it's like on the inside? You can go do that. Oh allow. That was the strangest gift you've been given. I really WANNA dance for this. I don't know if I have I mean boxes pretty weird. Isn't it about Sula books. Let's go with that Phil Box. What do you want to achieve do experience this year next? I'm always torn with this question because of me is focused on turning my podcast I into a video series and really expanding on offline forty eight and seeing the direction that that could go in and getting people off line and I obviously really want to capitalize on this life action message but but I don't want to have a fashion brand or anything like that because that defeats the object of it so for the time being it's actually growing my community with my slow fashion exchange facebook group expanding on the message getting the message out to more people on a very basic level and I'd love to do the things mentioned about the cost of rhyme forty eight. Just get this message out further but I'm always worried to focus too much on those types of goals because I've had those goals in the past most are had big big dreams achieved some of the things I set out to do and that's great but they didn't necessarily make me happy. They didn't necessarily make my anxiety away. They didn't feed my soul like meeting up with the friend does and having a cup of tea and eating chocolate I one call fun stuff to continue to happen and I'm really grateful for all the things I'm going to do but like really my focus is making sure that I have enough time for myself and my friends and so my family and my boyfriend doing the things that really really made me happy and actually finding that unachievable thing of balance because that's what is happiness to me. It's not signing crazy long twenty four month deal with a bake brandon that stuff's cool. It's not what makes me sleep well and I. It's not what makes me smile when I wake up in the morning so yeah I just try not to focus too much on that stuff. It might be to my detriment. It might be that I don't end up being as successful Liz I potentially could be but I'm kind of okay with that. I want to continue enjoying my life and spending time with the people that I love I think you will be incredibly successful. In whatever you do and I think you aren't so was so beautiful because I think a lot of the time time we kind of champion this kind of go boss guy says well of course and that can come at the detriment of our health of our relationships of everything. That tree makes us happy so I think is good to you. Make part of your goal. If not your goal doing more of what makes you happy simplisafe's if you could be remembered for one thing what would it be. People kind of remembering me someone who was cheering optimistic and thousands of a good salt have around general ranges someone who's got good energy. I think that's how I'd like to be. I think is peaceful and definitely something you will be. If there are three key messages the analysis could take away from this pocus US overseas spoken a lot about fashion spoken about switching off on the weekends who so can about anxiety. What would the kind of three key points of what we're speaking about today? What would they be? I ain't prioritize time for yourself every single day. Don't feel guilty about prioritizing that time for year. I'm aware that I have quite an extensive morning routine and it takes a long time but that's because I know I might not have this time forever so I'm making the most of it now and I know it makes me feel good having that time so prototype we don't feel guilty about that aim to be as conscious as you can. When it comes to your consumption really try and celebrate having less making the most of what you have and not seeking approval and wholeness from exterior things because that all comes from inside of us and to not compare yourself to others and this is something that I work on every every single day because it is so easy for me to compare myself to other people so try not to compose off to other people because you never know what someone else's doing eating seeing during king feeling and I think that comes from turning you find off tiny phone once in a while thank you so much on the podcast? My final question is what does getting. Ill Globe back mean to you. I think it's actually just about rather than getting back. It's actually just about consistency for me. Times where I feel fresher than others but again it's driving for that balance and it striving for the consistency of always feeling as good as I possibly can which is a daily practice and a hardship sometimes but yeah I think it's just about being consistent with myself care and who spent time with and how much time I spend online and he I think is just about feeling consistently goods rather than having ups and downs which I'm prone to so just more of a consistent balance is the goal. That's what getting my Slovak means to me. Thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. You have been a wonderful study. It's been a pleasure should we don't let's go Tom.

#OurNewNormal | Stacy Owens of Half Moon Bay, California
"Thank you everybody for joining us today. Or tonight whatever it is where you're watching this. And welcome to another the Tokyo talk sessions around a basically our new. And dealing with this pandemic in everybody's little pocket of the world, and so. I WANNA I WANNA. Thank you for joining me as well. This is the first time we've talked I've I've known you off or online for a little bit but a privilege. Maybe introduce yourself. And My name is Stacey Owens. And I live in the San. Francisco Bay area. My next question was going to be wear. You know I guess. I didn't. I think you're the first person so her. I've talked to in in the bay area. Funny enough my My partner did a piece recently. She writes through one of the national papers here in Vietnam and she did a piece about them. There were two women that own I. THINK IT'S A. Photo Hanoi or annoy or something like these two restaurants in. The San Jose. Bay Area, Okay Yeah. Yeah, and so I she was wondering like. Always saying Oh, I, think people just call it the bay area and I had to look up. What exactly is the bay area? Could it wasn't sure if like San Jose was in it It's seven counties. In San Francisco is. Worldwide City here Oakland. San Jose or other major cities. Around here it's all the bay area but we call San Francisco the city and then Oakland in that area around there the east, Bay and San Jose area around there are the South Bay. I am I'm next to the Ocean just about twenty minutes south of San Francisco and this is called the peninsula. Okay. But it was I. Mean obviously. There's a Lotta great stories coming up missing people being creative, wanting to help and everything And so this woman basically decided that like since she had the shutter restaurant down, she thought okay. Well I can donating some money to the hospital whatever she said I can just make meals at my employees will be able to. You know to work in everything I guess people heard about it in the neighbors and stuff so like our distributors and suppliers donating in so I think she's done like three thousand or four thousand meals, so for like and a lot of the hospital workers never had Vietnamese food so now they're kind of like when things go back to normal. They're like well. We're totally going to go and check at your restaurant everything so. It was a really cool story, but that was like I remember having to look up Okay San Jose in the bay area and you know so. I got a better picture. Yeah Yeah exactly we. We've a lot of our. Sort of mutual aid groups are doing to food, not bombs. is sort of organizing and their different chapters around the band, doing a great job of getting food and supplies out to people as well. 'cause like anywhere else. We have a huge problem of people without houses. And that's probably been the scariest. Part of all this. I think when I hear about the bay area. That would be another. Thing I hear about is housing prices and. All that because there's a there's a bit of the tech industry. Thing is going on there right if I'm not mistaken like like crazy. Yeah, it means that I mean you know my little teeny house that I live in Zillow at before this who knows now, but but it. You know they were saying this is about. Two Thousand Square feet. You know built in the nineteen seventies Granted were near the ocean, but last time I did it was worth over one point two million dollars, according to Solo so that just is obscene, and it tells you how completely out of range yeah, it's gotten for anybody and that's you know about six times what my husband paid for it in the nineties. Only is it completely out of range? But it's happened very fast in. You know relatively speaking in twenty years it's. Gone up extremely, so if Yeah and I mean obviously with this sort of thing happening in the world that kind of just makes it even more of a concern is this concept of will stay home shelter in place? It's like Whoa. What do I do if I don't have a home? Yeah or summer to shelter, and you know right now. I live near the ocean, so we've been having a lot of people from out of town. who think that shelter in place means drive to half moon go to the beach. So, so there's been. You know increasingly over the month. There's been a lot of. Efforts to curb that. But the latest one which I have very mixed feelings about is that the police are now pulling people over and looking at driver's licenses to see if you live in this area. You know which. The part of me that's that's terrified when I go to take my exercise in there. Is You know fifty people on the beach trail? Is You know kind of relieved that we're trying to get rid of that? The social. Justice pointed for people who don't have houses. you know. Where are they going to be? If every community keeps saying Oh, you can't be here. You can't be here and he can't be here. This is not a solution. It is not sustainable, and beyond the fact that it's quite scary. That being told the people can be fined or even arrested. For! Being in the wrong place. And I think I mean here in Vietnam obviously I a technically shouldn't even be critical of the government because. They're. All have. Their consequences But it has been interesting to see I mean in the neighborhood. I feel like a lot of people are not complying, but there hasn't been like. This mass uprising of protests in everything because. It's you know protesting isn't really a big thing here because there's repercussions that are pretty serious But I feel like in some ways and depending on. If you believe the numbers, in China are not like that sort of one state party thing led to maybe some of these regulations, everything being listened to a little better. We're just kind of like. Okay, we'll do that whereas when it went over to the West, you know people are like within a week. Everyone's like this has to end now like you can't tell me what to do I have my freedoms and that it on sale. Yeah, I mean. It was the same thing in the West Coast Canada in like Easter, break came around, and people are going to their cottage or cabin, or whatever it's like. No, you're supposed to stay home like, but I've also read that I'm. Like here in Vietnam, and obviously in two stars, and one and one hit pretty hard here so I think people also you don't have that in their memory and their dislike, right? We've kind of done this before. Let's do it. We need to do and figure it out and So I. Don't know it's a whole mix, but I was gonNA. Ask you like how. You know what sort of measures are in place like in the area that you're in an are people listening to them and we kind of. Ready Yeah because you're more. Yeah, I mean they the entire bay area. Was Pretty early, and has been pretty good about trying to put measures in place so they've been increasing as you go along, and his people aren't following the rules, then they put more and So, we've all been home for about a month I think he might be exactly a month the schools are closed until. Next year. So. School school around here starts late, August so as far as we know. Kids are going back to school mid late. August but we don't really know You know it just sort of week by week, They! were. Allowed to go out only for exercise in essential tasks I feel like that people are probably pushing it with the exercise. Ling is where he discussed a minute ago, but you know I. get it. I AM critical, but also I get to live next to the beach so exercise for me means I Gino. Would it mean for somebody else? Exercise means walking around a city block. That's not so fun Yeah you know and then With the essential activities, if you go to the grocery store or hardware store anywhere, that's allowed to be open. You have you're required to wear a mask and gloves. and. We got emails this morning saying that they were going to start. enforce did this is our grace period and they're gonNA. Start enforcing that with fines. And Possible Arrest on the twenty second so great Tuesday or Wednesday. Yeah. That's you know and I feel like that. That's. Pretty typical, but I know that there is other states in the country, and other. Areas Out of the country where they stop, were they didn't do the social distancing until much later and I'm not sure every state even is right now. Question Mark Question Our guy. They give I. Red State, or a blue state right so. Yeah I've definitely I mean I haven't been keeping like total track of all the states, but the overall news I've been getting from the states is that it's kind of a mix you know some places are already now talking, but all right. We're GONNA open up in. The economy again in other places just say you know I. Mean California in general I think he's been pretty tight and obviously like New York. State is going through kind of the worst of it from what I known, so they're not in any way being like all right next week. We're Kinda. But yeah, it definitely seems like it's a bit of a mix. So in terms of I know you have one kid, right? I've got one. Well. I've got three kids, but I've got one kid who is of school age. Lives here with with me and not got an older one is. I mentioned. WHO'S IN SEATTLE? He's thirty than I have a college age. Son Who is home sheltering in place with us. So yeah, and and you know so so we were sort of running the gamut. My my thirty year old is the director of volunteers at a homeless shelter in Seattle. So some stuff. That's coming out of there. They're having A. Hard time making some decisions and figuring out how they're going to serve everybody. And then, and then my middle son might twenty three year old. We really don't know day-to-day if he's going to be going to. College again in the fall You know it senior year, so this is going to. In some way, affected studies You know and then and then my little one. They, they're calling it remote learning. That different schools are doing a different ways his class in particular and I think it may be our district. There are occasional online. Zoom meetings, Nov.. But. It's really just sort of a check in and the teaching is all happening. There's work being sent. Home will not sent home. There's Google classroom. You log in there. And all the workers there but the actual teaching has been a combination of me and my husband and my. Twenty three year old, who also thank God is math and science teacher for his. Haven't been able to you know. put some of this on him, but but that has been. really difficult. I'm at the point where where I feel like I need them to say like either. Do some remote teaching, or just you know. Let us a little off the hook with the volume of the assignments. stressful to trying to get. All these pieces of paper. Done every day And it not and I don't think it serving anybody I don't think he's really. Quote Unquote Learning In the way that he would be. If there were some online classes which you get a privilege and I know everybody can't get that, but. Since we do have at. Can we utilize it in a way that means that I can actually. Do My job. have in between definitely. Would be would make things complicated. I know here. On the international schools, obviously, there were like all right online learning. Let's do it because there's no way more funding in like I think. Part of the infrastructure was already in place. So I've talked to like 'cause. I've been writing for the paper as well On. I've talked to some of the parents like foreigners with their kids in. The snapshot of You Know How people are doing here with foreigners is. No big deal you know half of them were teachers themselves, so you're just teaching their kids in the day and then doing you know online classes make a little bit of money and I mean obviously people have been affected in terms of their income because. Schools here have been closed since like January. So, there are some some teachers that haven't really had you know because depending on the school? He went with data like all right closed. Or some moved online learning order, so it's been like a mixed bag. The people I talked to were all doing pretty well. But that's like very much. A different world compared to say like what I understand that the public school system here and always seen people in small towns, unlike remote villages and everything. It's like I've heard some stories of like very determined students like sitting on a hilltop with like a cellphone signal to be able to get online classes. And then working in the firm for day, so they can go and buy more data on their cellphone. So it's. Again you know it's people just trying to do the best they can with what they have, but. Yet you would think lake reminds us of our privilege l.. But I mean you know in that sense, too? It's like okay, if the school system within say. or Western countries GonNa do it like. Do it, and and I mean you know, but obviously add like everything's kinda touching go. Kids not like there's like a manual for both of this right I mean his. I know like SARS and h did kind of hit the west, but like I mean I know in Canada Toronto Kinda had to deal with SARS a bit, but it wasn't like this nationwide disturbed looking about it right, but it wasn't like anybody thought they were. Get it. Just yeah, this is really unprecedented. This constant having like. Everything shut down. I! I mean I feel like I'm a little old but I. Definitely haven't lived long enough to have anything to compare this to write and. All? This she lives since nineteen eighteen or something. Like there you gotta go back away. so I mean look obviously, so it's impacting your family in different ways. How like altogether how are you coping with it like? Do you have any any secrets to its keeping all building? I mean I. Think The you know. I think overall. We're doing pretty well and unfortunately the secret is is that. You know. I have all kinds of luxuries. The most people don't have I. Have a house that I live in I'm not worried that I'M GONNA get kicked out by a landlord or any of this type of thing I owned my own business at you. Know so. You know whether businesses upper down a little bit of we can. We all have certainly instituted that. For me and all of the employees that are hours are just catch as catch can Ri-, were we can? And you know my We. Just have a relatively comfortable, live and so. There's certainly some. Awareness and guild that is involved with it, but I don't have you know. Tons of great tips for people who are in an unstable situation I mean how we're dealing with it is were family games every night One thing that we are doing with my son's school that. I feel blessed about is that his teacher institute is something called Genius Hour which is just being able to research and spend an hour each day doing whatever it is that you want to do and learning, whatever it is that you WANNA learn so we have been going through the history of liberation movements and In different, looking at different protests, looking at different. Protesters certain figures throughout history and seeing what was effective in what wasn't. Really trying to make this a teachable activists moment for him. He's always been interested in activism so. So you know I. I feel like that. That sort of Passing on knowledge and having fun as a family and the ability to think about. You know, what do things look like when we get out of here? And and what kind of steps can we take? To make sure that things are more fair. Going forward is. Best that we can do in his in his helping us. All feel like there's some purpose to. Being locked up in our house. Right, you know. I am I. Have a friend who think I mean. From what I know about her through social media with her child like they're fairly young, I. Think maybe she'd be doing this anyway. I'm not even sure if the kids ready for school yet but she's been doing like. Kind of going through the alphabet, and like each day's a different letter incident. She's going over like different musicians with that. You know that start with that letter in. Different books that start with that and certain topics around like you know activism in sort of historical figures that all start with G. Your F- for whatever and so she's been posting kind of like the collection on the table and being like today we learned about like you know I'm totally blanking on it, but just like a an. Historical people listen to this kind of music in these bands and I was like well. That's cool, so it's like I feel like everyone I've talked to has talked about like the importance of like maintaining routine, and you know just kind of knowing okay today. We're GONNA maybe like have classes and. That sort of thing I mean while also being aware that if you have a bad day like. That's fine because this is a messed up situation. Eight to be able to you know process so. In terms of your kid like how how have you explained to like? Have you kind of totally put it all out there, or is it like sort of? Always be completely upfront an honest in a in a very age appropriate way with everything I mean he's been an Vegan since birth. We talked to him about you know racial justice issues. You know Lgbtq a everything so so we make sure that the he really understands the real information, but in a way. That's not scary anxiety producing so what what he knows. Is that Kind of as much as I know right, which is. This. There's this virus in you know more. You're more able to catch than the regular flu. and the the hospitals could get overwhelmed so to be a good community member. We have to do our part and shelter in place, and that we don't really know when this is GonNa end, but you know. We. Have some guesses. We think that it might be a few months, but we'll just have to. Do our best and we still. Can you know take the dog for a walk? Cook with Mommy, and you know all the all the normal stuff that we do it. We're all just waiting to hear what's going to happen Because I. Am Very political and I. You know run a political firm and You know my family's very political I've been. You know mostly talking him off a ledge about. trump, and and what is this you know if like. He's. He's completely determined that this means that trump's not gonNA win. You know so there's so the most anxiety has been around right and I'm just. You know so the most anxiety is is is really been around What's going to happen in the future because of this it's. Yeah, we're all which are all experiencing and we just. Talk about it as honestly as we can and talk about well if he does then we're going to organize and. Just all we can do. I mean on that note actually that leads into pretty well to the last question or I guess sort of group of questions. I mean are there like you kind of touched on? If you know certain outcomes, but are they any sort of lessons that you you think your family is GonNa. Take from experience experience again. Things Kinda Kinda changed the way. You've been living or like things you focus on or anything like that. E Yeah. Yeah I think that. That as much as I've always talk to everybody about being an activist in how it's important to support, you know different movements in. We've done so all along I think that this is showing us that Paying more attention is going to be important going forward. And maybe Mixing in more direct Warwick, not getting so sidetracked by you know. I'm tired from work I'm tired from school You know just. Trying trying to really Better use the privileges that we have financial with time and. Class and everything else to. To be able to to systematically chip away at this better you know in in a unique position again with with working in politics. Send. My hope is that. That peer group that I work with on the political side that that this. This really motivates. That that peer group because you know it's, it's really the people in power who need to be looking at universal basic income, and you know how. How is it that they're saying that they can find places for people without a house to be now, but they couldn't have all long. How is it that we can feed people now, but we couldn't all right. Healthcare I mean? How is it that that they're saying oh? Yeah, you know anybody can go in and get a Tassell. That was never true before So you know, I'm starting to see certainly here in the bay area. which is you know a lot of the? People I work with Bay area or certainly California campaign I also have some North Carolina campaign, so so it's two different worlds, but But. Certainly the bay area. I'm seeing that. That the people who have the power are are more on that progressive side and more able to start to look at how we're going to. Make these things systematically better for people going forward But but this is definitely I think reenergized me and. My children to? To really look at. Keeping all the core with try to make things better in escalating. I think. Than sewing that I notice, too. Is that all these things that I mean especially in the states you know and in Canada's? While all these things that everyone was like look. We need to do this and everyone's GonNa. We can't like everything all pardon what? The communist state or whatever? It'll be anarchy like that's a bad thing, yeah! Of the country will tattered on. And this comes around and starts. You know finally like the majority's spacing it and it's like all right. Okay, you know in Canada. They were like. Student loan payments are being forgiven her like pushed ahead. And now there's what is sort of a version of basic income I mean they were doing I think they started doing it testing population about it, but it's not exactly like on a yet to be passed. Now, the government's like all right. We're going to give you know I mean people are falling through the cracks like freelancers and everything but it's SORTA talked about right. I mean obviously the healthcare thing in states is one of the big ams. Is You know as much as Canada like there are issues of their healthcare system at least. If people WANNA. Go get a test. They get sick. They're not like ten thousand dollars. In debt just because they got an incredibly infectious disease. So again. That's something that I've been kind of focusing on to. Is that I hope? You know out of this. People be like you know what maybe those weird lefties were handsome had a good idea there that this. Safety net isn't necessarily gonNA lead the like the collapse of our country. It does does seem like it's just a sort of very basic. Idea and and for me it's it's frustrating I. Come from a family of. A long line. My great grandfather was a union organizer back in the nineteen tens and twenties when it was dangerous. Ride and I was born in Berkeley in nineteen seventy. It always felt to me like that. Did it seemed like grown-ups were trying to handle this. And so how do we find ourselves here now? You and grown-ups, so we got we've really got to. We've got do something here. So I mean I think we kind of touched on it, but like what do you? What do you hope the world learns this tragedy? I hope the world learns to act more communally to think more about you know your neighbors, and and that. Maybe you don't need three cars. If your neighbor starving to death, I mean just you know just just I hope that they're. Both people's individual attitudes, and also some of our systems are changed in a way that that more people have more and fewer people have too much. Yeah. Yeah, I can agree with that I sounds. A good goal I WanNa I. WanNa thank you for sort of sharing a little window here part of the world. I am I definitely wasn't reading in the media of day? Except for the story my partner did. So. Thank you so much and I'm sure we'll be talking again like we have been asked him very. and yeah I hope you have A. Wait? No, it's night there. Right sort of not quite. It's four thirty. Okay well I! Hope the rest of your evening goes well, and I will be again in some form.

"Walking North along Fifth Avenue. We passed rectangular New York buildings with Towers ten stories high and taller. Traffic Rush by Central Park is on our left. We may hear pedestrians talking or Birds calling above us in the foliage Crossing 87th street. We glimpse a bright long gray curving form a head protruding from the rectilinear shapes around it the trees and buildings partially obscure the view but as we near 88th Street off the circular concrete building reveals itself in full magnificence. It's the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum The Guggenheim occupies the whole stretch of 5th Avenue between 88th and 89th Street. We sensed that the building belongs to this place. It's Doug in the emerging from beneath the ground plane. It's an asymmetrical building on the south side of the block is a large circular form like an inverted for a tiered cake each ring wider than the one below it the base of each layer Cuts in at a sharp angle. So the tears seemed to float with space between them on the north side of the block as a smaller circular form half the others height the structure gives the overall impression of an air traffic control center distinguished by half-moon-shaped windows with dark millions that span one level a rectangular form sandwiched between that level. And the building's top floor circled with Windows in the round. There was a sense that both circular forms are sitting on a deep hovering shelf as a second floor concrete wall wraps around them. We also see some vertical elements securing the building together. The entire building is painted a light gray though on a sunlit day. It can appear bright white The Only Exception is a freeze circling the top of the smaller building which is a greenish tone made of copper. Moving closer our sense of scale changes the structure fuels intimate and contained. It's set far back from the street and look up SEPTA police small tucked between the tall buildings around us yet. The curves of the building reach out towards us gently muscling the city grid to the side. Looking up the bright facade bulges out towards 5th Avenue, the round layers aren't entirely smooth the skin of the paint reveals a diagonal Grid in Chi-Town Crete from underneath. Soft Shadows emerge when the Sun hits at certain angles. As we stepped towards the building the sidewalk widens Street vendors or parked along the way and the Aromas of hotdogs and Falafel drift towards you. The Sidewalk Ends at knee high walls creating a buffer zone between the building and the street where deep Planters embedded in the urban block make a landscaped garden and reveal a ramp to a side entrance below street level year round people perch along these walls taking in the sun enjoying a snack from a street vendor are watching the passing parade of New Yorkers and visitors. Approaching the Museum's main entrance the walls final Ascent of the shadow of the overhang.

Likes to stare at attractive women wherever we are if there's woman who has generally attractive he's going to be looking. I know that the intentions are harmless. And he's not looking to cheat but him looking at attractive women obviously makes me feel less confident in myself. Tried to explain to me that if you had a perfect car he's still going to be looking at other attractive cars. God in analogy look at other attractive women even when they claim. There's is the most attractive. i just think. Find your person attractive. The urge shouldn't be to stare at something else. Thanks emma email. Because i do feel like. He's doing wrong in by letting her see him stare like that's wrong. It makes her uncomfortable. You have to respect that relationship and not do it right. If you're by yourself stairway. I don't even think steerings creepy i think steering is just creepy anyways created the person you're staring at anybody like walks behind his wife so that she can't see him but again this falls under. Bobby's gory like you. Don't want you to do this in front of your wife. You don't want your make your wife feel uncomfortable because she is number one in your life. She's number one so first car. You can play him this right. Hey bra you can't stare first of all don't stare anyway. Secondly she doesn't like like your woman does not like this so it is up to you to respect the relationship and not do it when she's around if you're alone and you wanna glance and be like wow pretty hot well he's pretty hot. Whatever it is that i understand. Don't be a creep. Don't do when she's around boils down to yeah respect. Yes yeah what would you say to her. And then i would say this. Well i would say the more you practice not staring. These will get not to stare because clearly. He's a terror and that he just feels comfortable doing that and so he needs to un unlearn the steering because it probably just what he does. He doesn't know any different. I think it's an uncomfortable conversation that must be had. Yeah hey guy saab staring. When i'm with you at least respect me if you wanna like look occasionally whenever i'm not with you i get. It guys are going to do that by the way you can say. Whatever all guys picks guys are gonna look not looking but you're going to look at a cool building or a car to kars. We can look at guys to like.

Hey buddy you're doing wrong right if she doesn't want you to steer don't stare she's going to look. Don't look that's the end of your ship at home and so much more important than whatever jollies. you're getting mentally. If she says it's fine. Look question that sometimes women say the exact opposite what they really mean. Yeah which is confusing.

And it's affecting the whole family because of the stigma surrounding it like people aren't sleeping in the same room because of snoring restlessness Frequent trips to the bathroom stuff. That's keeping their partner awake so it's really nothing with the actual relationship but kids are kind of embarrassed about it at school. Because i feel like something's wrong. So people are trying to normalize it. And i think it should be normalized because i listen. I can't imagine not sleeping in the same bed. Bedroom with caitlyn. However if i was a screamer at night or if i was constantly getting up and keeping her awake and was unhealthy because of it i would encourage her to be somewhere where she could sleep better. Yeah this is about. It's not about couples fighting. Although i did have a hand uncle and something. It's different bedrooms. Their whole life is interesting. What do you think it was because the snoring you're fighting was fighting. I never knew. I just always thought. Well that's an interesting technique. Then you know people in two different houses. I guess growing up i like it was a friend of our families. They would talk about this couple. They were lawyers and they've been they were married happily for years and years but lived completely separate in different homes to me. That seems weird. However that doesn't mean it's wrong. yeah. But i don't think they had kids because that's where things get a little more complicated with that situation. Whatever works for the couple to keep them happy productive loving. Hey go do it. As long as the hurting anybody else i agree. I used to probably gasp. But something like this like. Oh how dare you but back in the day. Couples didn't even used to sleep in two twin beds. And also as you get older you just realize much of that crap that we learned kids i now is only crap we learn because is crap. Our parents had known. You grow grow so speaking of sleep. I have nighttime habits of the longest living people in the world night time habit. Yes like these are things that people that are old and alive this stuff they do. They keep a consistent sleep schedule. Okay well that makes you did that. Yes and sometimes. I can't break out of it because i wake up early every morning on a saturday. I'm just like to wake up at three thirty or four. But i do wake up four hours earlier than i hope they get a full night's sleep which is ideally eight to ten hours does. That's not me. I'm doing a little better but that's not me. Allow time to downshift like. Do you have a wind down river. No in a bath doesn't do it for me. Really you know what i need them about. Auto kaitlan i said. Call my bathtub. Because she didn't take bats. I have three boxes of bath bombs. And i'm in that bath every night now. I need one of those things over the top of the bathtub.

Obviously when you have money big house and you buy your own ponds and your fancy boats. But i mean he's as real as it gets still. I think that'd be pretty good. I'm excited to watch it so again. Luke bryan my dirt road diary. And it's coming out august six. I don't know what. imdb me neither. I didn't know that existed but if you can buy it on amazon yeah or if you have amazon prime video like you may not even have to buy it streaming. Maybe okay there. You go all right.

A little more as they grow older too. It's also a culture thing. But i did look and i zoomed in on the video to see if they're playing ball with her guns on their holster and they were not okay.

But it's like he can't do wrong. He kills it and he's the most reluctant countries. He doesn't wanna be a country star. Is i just want to write songs. Wanna put them out and people like them great. If not i'll be good. I'll just stay here at the house and be quiet. It's such an interesting Those types of artists. They fascinate me. Because it's like obviously certain things come along with that but they want to create. You would think okay if you don't wanna do this don't do it. But then like they have so much creativity inside of them. That's what they need to do is just probably such a hard position to be in when you don't want the limelight at all. You're super creative and successful a low of sam. I don't love sam like ray love sam. We're raise favorite song of all time was breaking up was easy in the nineties but it could possibly be.

I guess during pants since pandemic though it's a lot cheaper to do so thank you like stars at the theater because they couldn't go places up. You're taking the picture now. It's like the theaters asking anybody else. Community dollars show. This story comes those from new york. A twenty five year old guy rented a u haul from florida to new york. He was moving drives. There's like you know what. I need a vehicle. Go ahead and keep it so he spray painted. It was driving it around. Only problem is forgot. God that there was a sticker on the front that said you haul on the windshield. And that's how they busted him. I mean the spray paint paint job is always tricky because it never lasts and when you remove those decals it always shows what used to be there. My dad had an old u-haul truck that like you knew. Obviously it was a u haul truck. The fast and furious shows school stuff. They drive in and they did a quick spray change off. That's not spray paint. That's always pretty cool. That'd be fun to be a part of just one time. There you go. i'm lunchbox. that's your boneheads story today. are you. close your eyes amy. Think back to the year. Nineteen ninety-four what are you see. I'm like an eighth grade. And how do you look. oh Pretty cute. I was the ninth grade. I'd say i'll want you at all. Just have a lot of friends nine. Well let's flashback in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Four flashback friday one thousand nine hundred four. That's eight or ninth grade mountain high school. You might have been in eighth grade. Pine we our entire school was on one hill meeting kindergarten through twelfth grade. So the only difference was the two buildings were separated by like seventy yards but that was it all six hundred kids from kindergarten through twelfth grade or right there in the same place and so ninth grade. It wasn't a move to high school because high school was seven through twelve. Th grade till i got beat up by twelfth graders and seventh grade. We're in the same building The days but back in nineteen ninety four and this day the biggest country song was. Don't take the girl from tim mcgraw. Tommy i thought this was a deep assault. Had ever heard of my life when it came on the radio. We had these junior high dances. And i mean you got out to the dance floor for this or someone asks shows like big deal. I would listen to kiss and ninety six and they play this and i would just wait for it to come on the tape in trying to record it what you do is you. Put it on record play and then pause and then right before and i didn't want to talk into it because wanted to hear the beginning of us. He hit pause real quick. And then you record on the tape and you want back into the kids you don't even know back in. Yeah yeah it was terrible. The biggest pop song. I swear from offer one and and the biggest news story was nineteen ninety-four in oj. Simpson was in a bronco chase. Happen ninety five million. Americans watched the eight hour. Police chase of o. J. simpson did anyone is that i missed the first power plants softball with arkansas keith. Quite good men's softball player and he would let me go play with them. I played with them in the men's like twelve thirteen. Fourteen years old at this point and i remember being in the outfield and someone's like oj simpson's from the wall. I was like So i went home and got to tell the end of it but there was no. Dvr rewind or anything but if you're not familiar he gets himself. You're not familiar. Let's although to like morgan. Oj simpson just a story from the past Yeah i have no reference or anything to besides what people tell me because you were born in three. You're telling me at one years old you watch watching next. My parents might have been. But i was like crying like a baby. All right there you go. That's flashback friday. I hope beg plead if you guys watch breaking bobby bones. Is sunday night to watch it live. That'd be fantastic. It is probably the best double episode. We've had where it's lonnie who was shot in the face. Lost all of his vision. He of the military he goes out hunting and boom get shot in the face. Can't see blind black outlined he says and so he still has really great things so i. it's not as job but he is a motivational speaker when he cleanse mountains and he whitewater kayaks blindfolded.

Ep. 24 Creative Learning Styles (Part 1)
"Welcome to make the grade with the success. Dr Steven Green were. You'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Tur- Stephen Greene Welcome back. Welcome back everyone. Dr Steven Green the success Dr Creativity creativity. Let's get creative. Today's about getting creative. WHO's ready get creative? Hopefully students are. Because that's the point when you you want to learn something or need to learn something. It is important to have multiple multiple ways that you can approach prost the information. I've talked about this before in terms of looking at information differently. If you remember the episode bottom up top down and I can get back into that. But that's not the point of today's podcast today. It's about creative ways the you can manage and and work with information to better help you to recall so famously. Always the story. How was I woke up this morning to radio and I heard some song? I hadn't heard thirty years or ten years. I knew every word. How can they possibly be when I can't I can't even remember what for lunch yesterday? yeah ever happened to you The reason part of the reason is the malady gives you a multiple sensory way to remember something Famously you can put words to songs songs that you already to the tune of and it's easier to remember there's a example with the Quad Radic formula where multiple people have made us versions of a bit. Negative be Ramona's the square root. Whatever won't get that far with it but but simple of this? Is that taking information and putting into multiple formats visual auditory writing all help. Reinforce the information they all take a little bit of time of course but if you can find techniques that you enjoy and do and work with this so I'm going to give you a quick list. I'm going to give you a quick example owned encourage you to try this semi some examples that you do I get from students a Some really awesome a great example. This sort of community way is a company called quiz limit. I imagine if you're a student you're probably familiar with it. It's essentially an online flash card. That has all kinds of very cool of functions functions for Once you make the cars you can do quizzes. And print them out all sorts of things in our many professional affiliated with Cleveland but what they do is is great and it plays right into talking about here but they're they're primarily a visual medium. So I'm going to talk specifically today about something to do with the student. Recently they had to learn the different phases of the moon. K now may or may not sound difficult and they're apparently are more Phases the Muna may think yes so he had a sheet of paper that had pictures of each one so there's a new moon and the crescent moon and the half moon and the new moon and all this and he was just kind of staring at it kind of taking his finger and tracing through it in kind of talking themselves new Moon Crescent Waxing move half whatever and I should add another. Let's let's try something different so we opened up the the studio here and did it like an interview which I'm going to attach to this podcast and I think you'll see how how much more effective it can be. So the idea is that you taking formation and now we make it auditory make verbal so you can actually speak it if you have a phone and I assume most people have access to one voice recorders voice notes. This is a great way to do it. I used to do this a lot with students vocabulary. So We'd put on the voice memo l.. And just say a word earlier tonight are you. Diet means scholarly very intelligent. Let's use it in a sentence. The urge you dight student was always getting ready for the test on time and then you would play it back and here. There's a power. I can't explain the psychology of it with neurologist but this power fearing getting your own voice so I think this is just a great technique. It's underutilized I do it with my students. I say a lot but but often enough when it makes sense. And it's it's fun it's interactive and it helps to learn which is the bottom line because this ultimately a is about understanding material in multiple ways so that when you get into the test you're prepared for whatever way the system or the test is going to ask you to present the material got it and again. This is recycling some ideas I've had in the past but it's because they keep coming up and they're important so without any further ado. I'd like to have a quick listen to this this presentation with the Moon. Knowledge EST Gavin. All right so here we are. This is Dr Steven Green. You are going to special guest in the studio today. This is gathered and he is the world's expert on the moon. Can you believe it. especially at his young age. Very very provocative so Gavin and and unfortunately those of you at home in podcast cannot see the model Avonex you brought a full-size all size moon with him into the studio today right. So Gabon's GONNA explain to US different phases of the moon. You can handle that ours was gabbing takeaway tell me about the phases in why they're important important or an because they have different meanings of the different studies of so the first moon is new and that is the son is not reflect off the mic shiny. Dark Dark Dark. Aw Aw might not even know. It's there now interesting g see an outline So what happens next next. He has a lax assing crashing. which looks like a little piece of a day and you see a little bit of light that just comes from the new waxing crescent? What is waxing mean actually needs to get bigger wow? I didn't know that what happens next. I flirted the whole day and only half. The light is missed half the greatest light to interested in. It's called. The Cooler of the moon is called the first cooler. But you're actually seeing half of the moon interesting okay. So stars marched neum goes the waxing crescent then the first quarter then what we have the waxy give us which is basically the whole entire just with a little piece of dark. It's a dark piece of crescent to relate the antichrist crush. Yeah no what happened after that you see a whole entire twelve full them and that's what yes completely this shocking. Our of on one half of it. So that's the story. It goes darker and now it's a Waxy Guinness which covers up a little bit of light announced until like you see especially initially a crescent on the right just like a waxy Dennis but instead is still waiting on the right so actually means getting bigger leading means getting smaller will only one letter difference. Yeah accident waning. But they've equally opposite meaning it. Yeah I can't believe this after that third quarter second quarter third quarter basically the another half on the right side and now looks like a sake completely so the half that was lit up in the first quarter is dark mark in the third quarter part door in the first quarter is lit up in the Air Corps yes and then after that we have the waning crescent and now awaiting lean crescent is just a waxen Craxi but on the other side the yeah and then after that the new starts all over again. How long does it take to happen a year? Now it takes twenty five days. WHOA ooh twenty nine points days and it's called her months Larry interesting very interesting? Now I tell me anything else important about the moon phases of then current cycles. I appears just barely in the this guy. Then as to the sky is orbits you see more of its lated side. He will recall that call. It's called a waxing crescent. Wow okay then what. When the opposite side of the Earth you see all of the light lighted side the full moon next you see lasting less of the light the job and it becomes a crescent moon which is a waning crescent? Can't believe it and that's it and then finally the Moon the moon moves between Earth and the sun again which makes a fall then I mean a Nubian Newman. Yeah twenty nine. I point two five days later again. This has been this has been enlightening the enlightening discussion about the moon. Is there anything else you wanted to tell us about the moon here. What's it okay very nice? Well this has been a very exciting episode of the Science. Our here our Special Guest Moon Moon expert Gavin Gavin. It was wonderful. Having you here we will see you next time. Maybe we can talk about the Sun All right what did you think. Do you see the point to see how it might. In many cases the easier to learn in this style while than it would be just taken a piece of paper pay per se. And just go. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. Oh Yeah. This is active engaged.

Virtual Walk: Cold War Mayfair (Part 3)
"Welcome to Spies of London and part three of our Mayfair walk. This is the final part of our Cold War virtual tour of Mayfair in the heart W1 London England this walk started in Grosvenor Square Gardens outside the old American embassy of the eagle squadrons Memorial. We walked through South Audley Street and Mound Street. Past like anfield house on cars and Street past the Saudi Embassy through Shepherd market and we left you outside the phone box right in the middle of Shepherd Market wage. You will now walk East along the main floor pasta Shepherd market and you will soon see the graves pop up on the left take a left at the grapes walking North now back to Curzon Street on your left of the C-Max Brothers the red book shop and I'd like you to stop outside Mike's brothers and look across the road across Curzon Street. You will see Heywood Hill on your left and g o f off at the Barber's on your right. The reason for stopping here is that I believe this must be where John le carre has stopped when he was thinking of the scene in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy when George smiling nice Robbie Martin Devon, George Smiley is clearly the colors best known character. He was played by Alec Guinness in the TV series in the 70s and by golly Element in the recent feature film multi Martindale is the drunk who likes a long lunch and is not exactly George Smiley's normal cup of tea and they bump into each other quite accidentally so off smiling is on his way to Heywood Hill Bookshop to sell an old grimmelshausen German novel in German. I think it's the first edition. The reason he's doing this is that his divorce from and lay down Smiley is taking a long time and she seems to have control of the bank accounts. So he's only access to Ready Cash is to start selling off his rare book collection. So here's walked from by Water Street in Chelsea is home through the rain book under his arm and he's about to arrive at Heywood Hill. So I believe he would have either emerged from the archway where you now stand or probably from a long career some street from the west and he's about to walk over towards Heywood Hill to go in and Rowdy comes out of trump as having had his haircut probably had a few bottles of wine already. He shouts at George they have a conversation Rowdy encourages George off to a nice day. Restaurants so that could well have been in Shepherd Market behind you one of the many restaurants that you've seen there. They have a long lunch that goes off into the evening and George Smiley accidentally leaves the rare book in the restaurant and he doesn't collect life until the end of the book. He never made it to Heywood Hill that day and the rest is history as they say he goes on the mole hunt. The rest of the book is quite clearly based on Kim philby. So George never sucked into Heywood Hill Heywood Hill is famous for many reasons. You might be able to see the blue plaque which shows that Nancy mitford worked there one of the famous mitford sisters a famous novelist. And of course the sister of unity home a relationship with that off Hitler and the sister of Diana who married Oswald Mosley. So Heywood Hill has its own literary backstory there. It's cold war and indeed World War II back story and it has a secret place a special place in the stories of John le carre. I suspect John le carre had his hair cut at trumper's and bought a few books in Hayward Hill when he was working at Lincoln field house. Just along the road. This is my favorite song. But on the Walk we're nearly at the end. Now, there's only one official stop left. I like it because I can quite easily imagine than the young John le carre a building up his Archive of scenes and applications ready for his first book of indeed. Tinker Tailor was well into his career, but grimmelshausen Trump has Heywood Hill these places Purdy's appear in many of his works. So take a last look at Hayward. He'll take a look through the window and Mags Brothers, which has some really rare and very valuable items in there and then walk along cars and straight to the East and take a right down Half Moon Street right. Now your walk almost the end of Half Moon Street. Certainly Beyond half way, you will walk past the Hilton keep on the right side the west side of the street so that you can see the Flemings Hotel clearly often been a lot of building work going on here. It's still as the boundary of Shepherd Market is still a very highly sought-after location. You'll see it's a fairly quiet straight, even though you can see Piccadilly running along the end at the South Pole. It's being redeveloped. But Fleming's hotel has been here from very many years. It's nothing to do with Ian Fleming is famous in Espionage circles. The hotel is very nice. We actually did the photoshoot in the bar of that hotel foyer. The first set of spy walks that I did with Airbnb and it's a really nice bar. It's a basement bar and it's called manetta's these are all very interesting things because a basement bar has no windows down there for it was used by a so eight people like they're Atkins to meet her spies her agents and debrief them before they perhaps went off for a longer meeting in one of the flats and officers around Shepherd Market wage. So manetta's was attractive because it had no windows, but what I found when we were doing the photoshoot for the Spy walks was it has no phone reception either. So we had to keep going outside to get the photographers with the signal so we can talk to him. And so I find it interesting that there's a bar with no windows and no cell phone signal where you can meet spies right in the middle of London just off Piccadilly Fleming's hotel is also in dog. Because it was the home of Bertie Wooster and I got the Christy has connections to the hotel as well. They believe it is the model for Bertram's hotel in Agatha Christie. Although other hotels claim that credit as well the likelihood is that as she did stay here when she was in London quite often that at least some elements of this hotel that you're looking at today have made it into her stories as part of Bertram's although I am not a spy writer as such you do find a crossover between mystery stories and spying a lot of spy novels are actually mystery novels that happen to have some Espionage content. If you believe anything on Wikipedia, you will know that bathrooms hotel is popularly believed to have been inspired by Brown's Hotel. However, it's the Oxford dictionary of national biography that suggests Fleming's because Agatha Christie was known to stay at Fleming's Fleming's is one of my fave hotels in this area because it's so little known it's kind of you have to be in a certain group of people to really know about it. They might disagree. It's been there for over a hundred years. I think it's been on this app. Right, since it opened in 1851. It certainly is an old enough building and it looks like it could well have been and they really play up on their spy connections. The bar is lovely. It's a really nice place to finish the walk but we never did on the Airbnb walk was actually going for a drink because the cocktails are a little expensive but if you have to budget if you're here traveling to the UK on a holiday, it's definitely worth going in and getting a beer or a cocktail in my office bar in the basement of Fleming's before I had my soe World War Two walk. I also used to talk here about Christina skarbek because she was one of the soe agents that Vera Atkins would have run and probably met in a hotel and the wonderful biography of Christina by Claire male is definitely worth a read I will be reviewing that book The Spy Who Loved by Claire Molly in a future episode of spies of London, but I mention it because this whole War can indeed most of my walks are about a time a period of time when all the spies and agents were men. But talking about soe is a chance to talk about the women because dead Most of the men who were able to were fighting in the regular army navy and Royal Airforce in the second world war. And so the women got left behind they were meant to be making tanks and missiles but some of them especially the foreign with with the people who had left France Eastern Europe in extremely dangerous circumstances wanted to get home and they wanted to get home as quickly as possible and they didn't want to be planting potatoes and people, you know, skarbek who was almost an olympic-level skier was an absolute modern-day hero. She put herself in danger many times and many of their Atkins agents were women many of them were executed by the Germans when they were captured. There is an SLE Memorial in Lambeth and we might cover that in the forthcoming city of London walk Fleming's has that part in in the history. It's not near the soe offices, but it off by Vera and others and it does give me a chance to mention that particularly during the war not so much afterwards, but during the war was the first time when women were put into these non-uniformed wage. Dangerous situations pretty much of their own free will in many cases they felt like they had a duty to liberate their own countries, but there were also British women who put themselves forward as well who didn't want to do a safety job. The story of Christina in particular is worth a look Christina died a violent death in London after the war and I think that it's worth remembering people like Thomas Harris who as well who also died a violent death thousand people sought out danger partly because they were drawn to the danger but also to help everybody else and to help win the war. So on that happy note. I wish you good morning. Good afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your day off make your way south to Green Park Station. If you are doing this one for real and you will find the Jubilee line waiting for you or there are many many buses that run along Piccadilly to all directions. This walk is freely available as a podcast took ever. You can also go to Spies of London UK to see more articles and other information and to sign up for the newsletter and free content. I am available for hire for private groups for bachelor and bath Red parties stag and hand birthdays and any other special occasion people are less nervous when they're in a group of friends that they know and they ask more questions. And that's one thing I'm missing on these podcasts is the interaction the question. So if you go along to expose of London and sign up I will figure out a way that you can ask your questions about the topics on this world and I can answer them really easily. That way we can build up a library of questions and I'm also thinking because we're not tied to a particular generation or location that we might add some more locations on to this walk that I couldn't quite fit into the job of fee when I did this for real in-the-flesh. So look out for more content from a phone now, but our next stop is going to be a different part of London the soe walk cuz I really like that around Baker Street and that would be coming up in September. Thank you for listening and stay tuned.

Greg is going to ask you very insightful. Question with us larry. David o-man all right here. We go. I know what i was gonna say or. He shot salvo across the bow on this one because i was not expecting him to start with this. Nowhere is was two years ago almost to the day we were in the same bar together. What bar was that we were. You were performing. I was sitting at the side table with a bunch of friends and it was a radical road. And you were with your dad playing in a family curse at the evonne Not sell production of she went on she put on a show at radical road. Do you remember how it's in leslie. No this small little tiny little thing. Tiny tiny little bar that the tour you played. And there's no no in toronto. In toronto was two years ago and three days. I do remember that low. I had any tiny amazing little. Really in my. Yeah yeah anyway. So so i was going to say that you know i'm not gonna. I'm not gonna spend the next hour talking about your dad. It's a cool all right. Hold on a huge fan huge influence. So i could. But i won't and i was going to promise you that cream wasn't gonna spend the next hour talking about you. Neil young cover album but apparently we were already going there. So now where i wanted to go with this was more you know. You've collaborated with your dad. A lot over the years whether it's him producing or or playing together in the band together. I wanted know. Just sorta like from your perspective. What are you love working with your dad. About and what influences he had on you over the years to the music that you're producing today. I've got to say i'm pretty lucky. I think i won the dad lottery. He somehow despite everybody telling him otherwise he managed to raise my sister. And i being like fifty percent dad and fifty percent best friend at it. Never be an issue so he really does feel like a good friend and we hang out all the time and we're always coming up with fun creative projects together and working with him. It's never even been a thing that we decide or like have a big meeting about it. It's usually like him showing up with a slide guitar and a box of costumes and to play dress up and start a blues ban. I'm like okay and we make my mom film as doing a music video and mom you missed it up unless it's all in the name of fun with him and that's something. I've always really appreciated about him. And his attitude towards the things is not taking things too seriously and doing it for the right reasons and i was growing up watching him work and watching how he handles everything he has to deal with the highs and lows of the industry and he will play the same show for a sold out. Beautiful venue ac- well for a birthday party for ten people. He always has that charisma. That pride about him. And i really respect that about him so i guess growing up in his footsteps is not been a bad thing for me at all. What was it always in the cards for you. To be a musician was or anything else that piqued your interest. Doesn't charl yeah. I didn't get into music. Tell quite late really. I started buying atari in my mid teens. I couldn't sing for shit. I was like twenty two fear anxiety. But i'd never really even tried. I wasn't a natural. And i just worked really hard at it. 'cause i couldn't stop writing songs and i had no way to to express the into them with anyone if found it very frustrating so i forced myself to learn to sing but i i went to photography school. I was always more into the visual arts. Asa thought i might like have a dog ranch or be a kindergarten teacher and then went totally other way very unplanned. Yeah we've had over the past year and a bit a number of musicians on. Obviously and i remember right at the beginning of the interview. Greg i would ask Know during this downtime has Have you been writing music. Have you been Is there have been any inspiration and a number of people. Greg can't remember someone saying no man. This is the best time a number of people have said no. I don't feel like writing. I just chilling out You start in this pandemic candle very differently than than a lot of people that we've spoken to in fact frankly from wrong on this album. That's coming out this month You guys were already in in like a self isolation quarantine who went into lockdown on the first day of recording. The album which was really insane timing. I get actually is the first album recorded of the krona virus era like was day. One very insane timing. Yeah when good if you could start in but yeah tell us more but how that's sort of transpired in how you how the process of literally being locked down like pique your curiosity to peak your Everything that you guys were doing to put the with the album together. Yeah i mean. At that point late there was no stopping me. I had just finally gotten out of my contracts and i was a free artists for the first time now so excited to finally be able to record again to do anything musical again. Because i wasn't allowed to and when this happened it was just like i. I don't care like we're here in the studio. We have everything we need. Why would we stop. There's no reason to stop and there is a lot of fear and anxiety in the air. If you remember those early days like we couldn't find in soap and we're washing our hands of pine sol and we all got rashes bike. It was really weird. Time when people are fighting for toilet paper and everything but the timing of it all was so like ahead. We've been just a few days later. None of it would have happened because we did the bed. Tracks the first two days and that was you know everyone was like okay. We're not really supposed to be doing this. How are how are we here. Are we touching not touching and then they were all gone and on the third day. I really wanted to get my girlfriend's in to do these. Prima style gang vocals on the whole album. I hadn't even sung yet had laid down any drums and bass and that was the last day they were allowed to come to the studio. So i got them in and did a full day of all the backing vocals just two drums and bass. And then the next day they had to go into quarantine so then it was just my producer engineer and myself for three weeks and the owner the studios. Everyone cancel you. Guys can just live here if you want to stay till you finish. The record producer is in from london. And i was actually living in london too and we had no idea what we were going to do but we just ignored everything and focused on making the record and we lived in. Breathe it the time. It's always thought about super three weeks. You guys were in your own sort of lockdown the. What about mixing all of that. When did that take place. Same time. Vaster everything yeah. Yeah i like slow. Why stop we're here. Let's do this whole thing. So what is this album radio while ago. Then have been tweaking. I know you've thought a bunch of videos out already yeah. It was finished last march and the year before that will. I was waiting out on my legal issues and kind of homeless wandering around. I made a bunch of songs in different places at one in london with youth from killing joke in one with my friend and kings of leon nashville and just for fun. And as soon as i realized i was a free woman i thought. Hey let's release this first as an ep. Try and test out the waters with the independent thing i. I don't know what i'm doing after a team. I have to learn how to be a label. A manager learn all these new skills. So the ep was kind of test to set up the record and i think it went pretty well. I was pretty happy. And i surrounded myself with with good people with a good team that i really respect in. Choose to work with which you don't get an label situation and yeah everything i've been doing. Since the pandemic started just to set up this release of the record do it the same level that would happen with a label but on my own. Yeah i know that. Like i don't know how she can and cannot talk about some of the legal challenges that you were dealing with at the time. But how did how did that. Fuel positively or negatively into what you were going with or one of those things that you just sort of put aside and then wrote you know what i mean. It was kind of mixed like there. There's a lot of bitterness and resentment for sure a lot of frustration. Many many meltdowns and health problems. But also you know who's kind of an interesting place to be in realized that a no longer have to make anything for anybody else. In if i want to continue making music and releasing music. It's because i want to. It's on my own terms. There's nobody waiting for it. There's no deadlines other than what i create. And i had a few months for sure where i was like. Maybe i'm done. Maybe this is it. I've been like chewed up and spit out by the industry. I'm mad and i'm tired. And next thing i knew i wrote a whole record my well. I guess i better keep going to lower my expectations in just still remind myself every day that i'm doing it because i love making music you know when when i when i first read that There was excitement of view being independent and Being frustrated with your previous label. I'm thinking oh my goodness she was probably one of these. Big big labels may be universal warner and you're with for mobile with a small independent label correct yet and still the same issues. One would think of people remember. Prince changing his. Name's we can do whatever he wanted. People might remember Neil young putting out an album. I was trans. Maybe harry which one is able say. That's not a kneeling deng wreckage. After put out a record what tell me greg. Greatest gone some Experience in the music. Industry i come from the fan background but Whether big or small what is it. That the label does to artists. That someone like yourself finds frustrating would have could be so many things i mean. I'm not allowed to talk about the the details of exactly. What i went through is more like one person doing things to me more. But when you you signed a deal and especially like a deal i had which was management label and producer. All in. one. I'm not allowed to make any decision so i was made to. I had to remake my same second record over and over again. The same songs for three years always told that it wasn't enough that there was some big strategy and play that we were going to go global that i was to canadian and all these reasons of why i had two key going. Why wasn't good enough. And why did you toughen up. Then have thick skin. And i was basically like in a boot camp for three years and i was totally brainwashed and manipulated and i felt like it was actually what was best for me and people would tell me all the time like this is not good. I don't you know. I'm seeing red flags. This is not okay. This isn't healthy. And i'd be like no it's all gonna work out. It's all going to work. it's fine it's fine and it just got to a point where it was very toxic and very scary and i hadn't been allowed to play shows in years i hadn't been allowed to do an interview. I wasn't watching. It released one song. I got most of my social media deleted because they determine it wasn't on brands like pictures of me and my dog and me and my dad. You know my own life that was like this is non brand and it. Just how awful switched labels After my first record and went to that other label with kind of the peak of my career my first record did really really well. And then. I thought i'd always like moving up to the next level for the second record. I was like the buzz kid. And you know was doing a lot of cool things and getting a lot of amazing media coverage than i just got buried and had to stay hidden like is is pretty hard to come back from the like still. I have to tell myself every day to like released. The past don't hold on to it. It's not serving you. Try to learn how to meditate and all those things we're supposed to do to get over things but who really does a number on it. That's that's heavy. I mean. I mean we've had we've had a number of younger women i know i know cream. Looks like he's in his twenties but little older second cy young on a by nobody. But we've had a number of young strong come on you know much afraid to tackle topics like trauma and abuse and yet on the other side of it is the you know when you get past that. That's that's playing too low but like the empowerment on the other side. You know what i mean and you you share a lot of those stories through your music and i'm sure again when i asked you about what happened previously in how it ended. How influence now hearing your story just breaks for you. I just can't even imagine what you've been able to grab hold of that in use for empowerment. I don't think i've still kind of waiting for that. Truly empowered state to kick in. Which i think it will eventually. I'm i know. I'm doing all these things that other people look at me and have that impression and they're like wow. This is amazing. All you've accomplished by yourself. But i still feel like this big and i still feel scared. I still cry all the time and have to do also therapy and take out of it. And i'm like yeah. I must strong woman. I think so much of it is like you. Fake it till you make it. I have to act this way intel. I myself believe that. I can be that person. But there's a lot on in your head all the time. One of the best things about this podcast. Candle is that greg and i get to Be exposed to brand new artists Or this music. We haven't heard before And so when the opportunity came to Interview you one of the first songs That i sat down and said okay. Let me let me see who who candle is a let me here. Who candle is was was lock and load and that s i heard it and it was like holy shit woulda voice. It's it's there's you know. People talk about axl rose having all of these. You know he's got he's got a wide range but in that song you have. There's a big range of highs and lows in that song. I wanted like dive into that song. How aware the ideal for that song came. Everything from the the theme of the song to the The james bond treatment that you gave it. I would love to talk about locking loud. It's one of my favorite things to talk about. That song is actually how my producer of this record and i decided that we were musical. Soul mates in that. We had to work together. He's actually The engineer for youth in london and we were doing a song called spell together. When i was in london and michael started talking about how much we love. Bon saw Shirley bassey as he's sinatra. We realized that we were both major. Bond nerds and i went back home to my place in london and i was really sick. I got vertigo and was very miserable and feeling so ill at i texted michael like send me some bonkers words of devastated and he sent me his little piano light and the start of that song and i voice noted him back the the first verse and he's like holy shit i think we're onto something and through voice notes just that whole night. We wrote the entire song. And we're posting and it's state we meant to be together and that song. Most of it. That whole vocal on the recording is actually just the demo. I only ever sang once. And i sang and as i wrote as often what i like to do. All right melody a lay it down once and be like is that right and if it's not right i'll do it again. But then i'll just go section by section so each section i wrote. That's the vocal for it at the time while. That's i mean that's crazy. That song is just just. The vocals on that are just mesmerizing. Ince to me but you talked about spell. Yeah and i came across the story on how that was made you went to. You just met this. The songwriter of the producer. And there was music okay. Candle what's what's the lyrics. Now it's really strange. Can you tell the story about that song and how they came together. Yeah i I met use when i was seventeen. Touring in china with killing joke. Show random teenage girl. Does i was living over in england for a bit. I didn't know anyone. And i was wondering like how could start getting into music over there and the only guy i know is the legendary rock producer has a band with paul mccartney and everything and i messaged him on facebook like hey moon wanna hang out and he invited me overdue his house for tea and we shot the ship for a little while and he's like thought you would assume then like okay so we just went upstairs to the studio michael. Was there like ready to go is like it's all set up for recording session. I had no idea and he just grabbed a base started jamming something and we figured out some chords he had me a mike similarity mike. I don't know what. I just went for it. Because you can't really say no to a guy like that on the spot use like i expect you to sing and i'm like i don't wanna let you down so we wrote spell one day in his studio at the house mike that was cool and then you come up with with lock and load soon after michael week after. Do you write songs this quickly. Yes sometimes they're either like Sit down all at once. It just comes out and then sometimes i work at them first months. I never know what it's going to be. I have so many half songs. It's frustrating like one hundred half songs put over half songs together. See if i do that sometimes in there in the same key. Unlike wait does this. Where can i larry us. So is it voice notes that you continue to go through or of notes in your in a notepad with just lyrics How does it work for you. Got it all got a lot of voice. Note scott notebooks. Scott less scribbles. Little bits everywhere. But i'm fine. It's like it's just much more funded to have someone with you. As the only thing. I really hate about being a solo artist is like nothing says fun by yourself and when i met michael just showing him all these songs i had. Just just the littlest idea like oh. We're going to add an organ here and we're gonna go halftime here like everything you're saying it's awesome and yet you've worked not working with but you've collaborated with so many people right like about having somebody else you your i mean when you look at you know your credentials. You've you've collaborated with a lotta people. So when when you're when you're writing and you say you you enjoy working with somebody better. What is it about that process versus. Just you on your own. That you're feeling more inspired or creative with certain. Let favorite part about. It is just like after you've been doing this awhile like you know all your own tricks you know you know you know what you would do. And when i'm writing a song like it's my songs are always to me anyways. It's very me like that's a classic candle thing to do. And when i'm sitting down with with someone else like michael or youth and they're like right. I think we should go here. I think it should change to this and we should do this cord. And it's it's never what i would do. And then get as a lyricist and writing the melodies. I get to go to entirely different places. That i wouldn't normally have ever gone to because i'm trying to meet this new direction and meet this new dynamic. That's exciting to me in these chords sometimes. Like what michael played in lock and load. I can't play the piano like those are expensive courts. And that makes me as a vocalist challenge myself. More of like whoa. What can i sing over these chords. I've never played in my life. I would just sit down and play money in a minor. D manner works. you know. That's the song and it'd be anything about my dad's song writing that's all. It needs to be really impress themselves on the one chord hit. One gun is just d- the entire time and he's like i'm a legend. That's hilarious. What did you did. Dave rave work with you on this album like i know i've seen some pictures of you in the studio so where i was really interested to know was listening to the album and knowing what dave rave has done an accomplished in written in the music. He's written like what what of what of him came into this album. If that makes sense. I don't know i just. I think maybe jack low might be something where you start to get into the sort of a sound. Nothing he had one sound. But just what you put out is very different than i think. What dave raves body of work been they another one of the perks of growing up. The rock kid is i kind of have like a hundred oc. Dad's rave is one of them really. He does things for me that is so beyond like he doesn't have to. He goes above and beyond for me all the time so he engineered the whole record mostly just because he wanted to hang out and be there and i'm so glad he was. He was he really was like the data of that whole recording process and the pandemic and everything like he's such a good energy he so positive. He's so stable. He's so fun and just any idea. Michael and i would have just calmly make sure it was executed. He's like yeah. Let's do this okay. This mike no try that. Let's do this and just very fun very cool. And then he makes the whole record to end. And i love mixing records with him. He just gets super stoned. He gets in this. You know you let him do his anger like the first hour before you give many notes. Because he's just like he's vibe and he's feeling is on the board and he's like oh new get like look like he gets a trance and his mixes are incredible awesome. You talked earlier about having interested in photography. And i'm guessing you've taken that into your videos as well so so to go back a little bit too to lock in loads been nominated for a video award And also one of your earlier Videos was also nominated as well not up to me What is it about. Especially these days in videos What is it about our videos important to to you as a way to give further meaning to to the song as you release them definitely from me and i know it's not that way for every artist i honestly i don't know how many people that listened me even watch the videos you know. Sometimes it's totally different crowd. And i think of all my favorite songs that have come out in the last few years. I don't even think. I've seen any of those videos but for me. It is like a very important part of the process. In every time i write a song. I have the visuals in mind. And i like see a movie. I was feel like. I'm scoring something. And i just it's so satisfying to me to like. Bring it to life with visuals and it really does tie the whole thing in together for me. It makes it more powerful and yeah like the one not up to me that when the prison a few years ago like i had those visuals in my head for a whole year that i was desperate to create and the video which just turned out so great director was amazing and it really connected with people and that's the best you can really hope for. I mean i. I never know what a video is going to do if anything. It's just a good piece of content now alongside year released. But i have way too much fun making them to ever saw sure You you also mentioned a little bit ago about you. Know some of the some of the some of the drawbacks of being independent. Or or being being just being you yourself part of Part of a band are are there. Jeff future aspirations that instead of just being candle you may be. It's candle is four or five piece rock band or pop end so that is just more or or is it. Come as ill come with. It comes that's kind of dream for me But at this point. Whenever i do something like that it's going to be like a side project you know i have. I have things go with. My girlfriends said saying on the record. That are all amazing. But that's like that's kind of its own thing. And i tried that at the beginning of my career and it's just it's a really hard balancing act to have everyone feel equal invalidated happy and i've had so many people come after maybe four and musicians threatened to not play show in this i give them thirty percent of songwriting for a song that they didn't right and like all these kind of things because once people are with you long enough they feel like they're equal and i'm like well if you didn't write the song and he's like i don't know what to do in a ban. My dad is a good example. He he's the sole songwriter. But he has kept everyone happy. All this time by doing complete equal shares but then again like former band members. His first drummer ver is credited as the songwriter of like ocean. Pearl and i go blind. And that's very frustrating. Just to me as his daughter. He played drums on it. He's not the songwriter you. I think every every songwriter every artist has to choose their own way to to find that balance and to make people happy. And i've never started out as a band and i've never had a consistent band around me so at this point doesn't really make sense but it is the dream candle. We have a segment called lost venues. Yes where we sort of take a look back at venues that that don't exist anymore So we're wondering if there is a a special venue that you've played in before that you've got some great memories and maybe story you could share but one of these lost venues can the only one i was thinking of. Actually just shut. Down is called the emerald here in vancouver in chinatown. And i didn't actually play a real show at it but we shot the whole honey trap video in there and got to perform with the all woman band and it was just such a cool place. It's like a david lynch movie us so gorgeous in weird And i loved it. We when had a little released party with the three of us after kobe at the emerald and found out that it was shutting down a few days later. No that was. That's my loss venue. I'm sad about that one. I would like to go there all the time but they are going to knock it down and some condo there. Yes yes. We've we've talked a lot about some of the loss venues and you know particularly in toronto yoga hughes room and places like that. It's a largely to do with taxes and anonymously that they're going to build condos right now but they could so they're taxing it as if it was a condo building and you have these independent places that just can't stay in business anymore. Unfortunately let's close in toronto. What are like any a maude club is mod club is done. Although although there is rumors that somebody might get a hold of that Again hughes room is done Silk so dollar ellerey Just today released. A almost lost menus episode. The two of us just doing we were talking about the combo now. Thankfully that's you know with the money being dropped into their. That's should be a pretty spectacular. Then i feel sad for that would like we're finally opening pandemic hits. The timing is horrible. Timing timing is one theory horrible for sure you talked about honey chop this up to say another stunning video as well. Yeah bond esque sound. I think the two of those are just like to me is like you just listening man. This could be a bond theme in a bit of a faith. You might notice the rest of the record. I was like okay. Stop being so bond candle to record be reasonable. Do you get speaking of bond or speaking of television or movies. How do you get your songs on. Tv shows like you. You've got a song. Tiny pretty things if i correct there which which song is at. That's a song called in which is really cool. That made it onto the show. 'cause i was just a weird song Through on the last record that i did all by myself. I've played everything i produced it. My mom thought it was like scary and uncomfortable. Wanna ever didn't really do anything until this. Tv show us. I think that happy mother's day. Mom just like i still don't like that song. Whatever tv things like. I don't really know especially as an independent. It's really hard. It's like a popularity contest. It's who you know. It feels very high school to be honest. Like it's if you're the most popular and you're gonna get all the like the cool. Thanks and anyone. I've got has basically been through a friend or a friend of a friend a fan that wants to help me or that loves what i'm doing and they're always just really random and very grateful but i've been putting in my steers five minute journal. Yeah like a gratitude. General super dorky. But you know mental health issues. Sure he's supposed to do list like three things everyday that you're grateful for and one of them should be something that hasn't happened yet. That you for c. And every day. I write my. Hbo theme song. I'm manifesting like it's gonna work. You'll see renewed every day for like six months now is gonna cut. Album is coming out By before the end of the month in the before times candy would ask people how you supporting it. Where are you going on tour. But what are what you must have some plans Some curious what what plans do you have Around you know the support for this album outside of these amazing videos that you've already put together. Well two more amazing video as you know. Have a pretty good. Pr team around me. So we'll keep trying to get features get interviews and promote it all and social media and online and In a few weeks we're going to go back into the studio that i recorded the record in Some stripped down performances with the girls. Because we can't even get the whole bandon with a breaking the rules so we're just going to try and perform has the record somewhat acoustically and be able to have some sort of live aspects there but yeah it's really really weird times. Isn't it absolutely these. Are these your same friends that you've done these backyard sessions with. Yeah so there's a deborah jean krill. Men she just released a new single last week so good definitely check it out. And she was a founding member of mother mother.

She's producing all these young artists. You've ho wrote some songs with orville packed. Like she's just a machine. And i'm very lucky that these three ladies like my entourage and they're always down to make music me play with me and beyond the records. Yes that's awesome and a big fan of all of them. It's a good dovetail into one of the questions. We like to ask our guests before we finish up which is in you touched on a bit there. But what's what's in your earbuds lately.
