Charlie and Jack Posobiec Discuss What It Means to Be a Good Man

"All right, this is a good question. Sherman from Grand Rapids, I commonly say, just as some background is in references in the question, be the same person in public that you are in private. Because stop pretending to be somebody that you're not. So if you are in private, a conservative, be a conservative in public. Charlie always say that you should be the same person in public that you are in private. I agree, but what does it look like to be a good person in private so that you carry over that good behavior publicly? I hear Jack talk about his years of sobriety. You talk about the need to explore big ideas and always be constantly learning. Can the two of you just expand on what it looks like to be a good person, specifically a good man in today's day and age Sherman from Grand Rapids? Kind of an open ended question, but I'd go back to I'd go back to the gospels where we're taught to be in the world but not of the world, right? So the idea that when people meet you, that you can talk, you know, I can make cultural references to Game of Thrones and Harry Potter and Star Wars and everything else. But when you meet them, when you meet someone, or I should say, when they meet you, rather, that they should come off with a sense of that person is grounded in something different. And something that's a little bit different than what's pumped onto TV every day. What is your sobriety meant for your life? Not drinking. So, yeah, for me, early on, and I wasn't someone, you know, I didn't do I never considered myself an alcoholic, but it got to a point where I said, you know what? I'm done with this. I'm totally done. Why? And why did you get to that point? You know, I've told some stories about this before, but I had a friend who, you know, I had a friend who got arrested over it and I saw the way that it basically ruined his life. And this was really on early 20s. And I saw how just so many doors were closed to him. We're completely closed by after what happened. And I said, you know, for my life, looking at it, it's not worth it. It's not worth even going down that road, and plus I get to wake up every morning, feeling amazing right now and not just because I sleep on my pillows, which I do. From a food Kirk. There's another promo code out there that people not on this show, but not on this show. But seriously, we do see one of our pillars, actually, and the toppers in the sheets. But my wife loves not knowing, I don't understand. From a coach is the only way to go. Yeah, okay. And you have your mental, the way I look at it is this. The way I look at is this. Parallel talents, right? Parable Italians is that the idea from behind that is that God gives you your talents God gives you your gifts. He doesn't give them to you, so you can bury them under the ground. Talents were a currency and hide them. But you're right. Right, it is perfectly for the English term to. You're right. And so I look at it and I say I've been given whatever gifts I've been given whatever meager gifts I've been given by God. And this is something that dilutes them. It's something that affects your brain chemistry. It's something that affects your health. This doesn't seem like I'm being a good steward of God's talents if I'm

From the harry potter films have come out to reassure fans that it is irc as to love the prophecy while not supporting the message of hate. It's creative preaches but is it really so easy. How connected are creators to that creations and has it changed in recent years with the rise of the cult of celebrity. Let's start things off a discussion of just weeden severe. A long time.

I've actually only familiar with buffet. I not really watched file a house if you knew is so. I can't really speak from the buffy. Sound point and i am still puffy fat. I think it would be really hard not to be. I was pretty shocked when the allegations came out. And also it's extremely depressing when you read off because anything that you've held close to halt and that you've big doppler on shows like this in to other people as a standard to aspire to and then you realize that this create a really things let us a bit of a you know a knife in the heart but i feel like i think we'll be talking about this later about separating the creative from the often the artist.

"A slithery surprise looking in the shelves of a supermarket in sydney australia. Twenty five year old. Elena alati was shopping for spices when a ten foot python emerge from behind the jars of spices flicking. It's tongue just inches from her face known to her friends. As the harry potter girl helena happens to be a trained wildlife handler with over twenty snake rescues to her credit and quickly recognized the reptile staring right at her. As a non venomous diamond python remaining calm she captured the unusual encounter on her phone before alerting store clerks and offering to help catch it after returning with our snake bag. One tap on the tail is all it took for the serpent to wriggle happily inside after safely. Depositing the creature back into the nearby bushland. Helena admitted that while she doesn't speak the harry potter language of serpents known as parcel tongue. She believes snakes gravitate towards her because they sense she cares about protecting animals.

"Researchers have been thinking about how to reduce noise for a while. in the past the way to soundproof. something was create thick acoustic barriers. Made of heavy sound trapping materials but those are impractical for addressing some of our modern day noise emitters transportation machines. Hvac systems that kind of heavy barrier is not going to work for these things barriers. That block sound often also prevent air from getting through the world needed to find a way to create sound barriers that were light as air instead of thick and heavy so researchers began playing around with alternative materials in their quest to make sound disappear. This is nick. Fang calling from mit currently professor of mechanical engineering and we have been working on capturing light and sound waves yielding nanna skill materials and structures. Nick fang now at mit is one of the researchers who's been defining the cutting edge if acoustic engineering back in the early two. Thousands fang was working on a doctorate in mechanical engineering at ucla. He and a partner. We're trying to create a material that would make objects invisible like an invisibility cloak. Yeah very harry potter. We were collaborating on the concept of invisible cloak and more fundamentally materials than leased who transparency are the exotic effect refraction of light. This might sound crazy. But you've actually seen it happen in real life. nature has its own way of making an invisibility cloak.

Were more than fifteen years old and one naked mole rat who she first met while doing doctoral work in the eighties. A pink and wrinkly dude named joe. He is now thirty nine years old and officially the oldest living naked mole rat on record. He's barely aged at all in nearly four decades and there is every expectation that he'll make it to the big four. Oh thanks to the work of buffon's stein and increasing number of scientists studying naked mole rats and various capacities. We now know that the creatures have an astonishing lifespan of around thirty years. Joe is an anomaly of the anomalies. Of course anyone who's read. Harry potter knows what's going on here. Joe is clearly a shape shifting wizard who faked his own death after joining a colton murdering his best friend. so he's been hiding out as a naked mole rat for the past few decades.

I harry potter and the philosopher's stone. They're both over six hundred years old. Because in the novel nicholas has discovered a magical artifact that makes him immortal in the united states. this object is known as the sorcerer's stone but for simplicity. I'm gonna stick to the british term philosopher's stone now supposedly this stone is incredibly powerful legends about it have been around for about two thousand years. They say it has the power to turn any metal into gold. And it's connected to this beverage called the of life which keeps you alive forever. It's not super clear of the philosopher's stone makes the elixir. Or if it actually is the elixir or if the recipe for the stone is close enough to the elixir. That if you can make one you can make the other either way. The central idea is consistent. If you discover the philosopher's stone you can become immortal. Ancient accounts describe the stone. Bright red and it wasn't really a stone at all. it was actually more like a powder or a fluid something you'd add to a bubbling vile to create anything. You want and i do mean anything. See alchemists just trying to get rich and achieve immortality. They were trying to unlock the fundamental secrets of the universe. Like why lead is led and knock gold or why me and not someone else and the idea was that with a for stone you could transform anything or anyone into whatever you want it. And it's not like there's just one stone because according to out chemical tradition you can actually make a philosopher's stone so researchers weren't necessarily trying to locate one. They were trying to create it. Supposedly the closest anyone ever got was this guy named nicholas flannel.

"Like big beige. Metal buildings. Huge. They, let you in a certain number of people at a time and. The amazing thing about it is that it's the real thing you know what I mean. It's not like. Like after going to the studio tour, I was honestly a little underwhelmed by universal studios because. It was a very obviously a poor recreation anywhere was. This was like the actual sets that they use to the first. Let you walk into the Great Hall and it's the actual great hall and it's a lot smaller than you think it is. It's very small mccafe grade. It's not very great like they just use. Camera angles took a really long. It's not that big. And then throughout that set, they have sort of glass cases of leg. Chose, costume or the sorting hat like the actual sorta of. At once you walk out of the Great Hall. You're basically in this giant warehouse area that you can kind of wander for early. And there's tons of different sets and like there's a whole section about the composer's. There's a whole section about animals that they fill with, and there's a section with a bunch of wigs and costumes, and so there's like informational pieces about the process of making these things you're learning about the filmmaking process and the people behind the scenes. And then also getting to see Luna's wig and Bella tricks wig unlike on the head, a bunch of different costumes. And, this like museum experience really more of a museum. It's not A. Like you can't. It's not really interactive In the same way that like like immune per it's universal Harry Potter is built to be interactive and for you to feel like you're in the world. whereas. The Warner Brothers Studio tour is more about. The movie magic and seeing where everything was filmed, so they have they like full sets. That's off, so they have the Griffin common room set, which is tiny. Tiny, I was like how did they fit people on here? It's so small. And then they have the entrance to Dumbledore doors office. They have doubled office. They the whole thing they the entrance and double doors office and they had. Doubled costume sort of in a glass case they're. Snakes Dungeon they have the borough also very small. Very low ceilings I. Don't Know How they filmed in their the I it's like very short. And then they had this giant like. Mesh kind of create that you can look into just full of props. It's just like every single property capacity imagine. And then when she broke through that giant space, you go outside to the back lot, and that's where they have perfect drive and like the neighborhood. The this sort of outdoor set. They have the night bus with can go in. That was really fun. You could go in the night bus the full diagonally like it was gorgeous and it again very very small, but if you shoot it at the right perspective, grottes looks really tall and They had like the the center so intricate, so I can look into the shops NC in the window, dressings and everything. And all my God are forgetting these they had the full hogwarts express. They had the full train station. That you could walk through and then there was a section of the train that you could go into. It was very cramped. So you could like. There was the outside set of the train. And then there is the section of the train. Were they films the students in the compartments? And then there's this area where you could like. Where there was like a green screen piece where they would film them sitting in the compartments as a you could sit and act like you were on the train, unlike film yourself and they would have like a green screen behind like it was so cute. Anyway, that's. There's so much more keep forgetting any is be like an hour long segment. Gushing about this place, and it was so fun and I think it's really like a testament to. The World Building that will talk about in these novels at like. There's so many details that is just so exciting. The see brought to life and like. I'm excited to go to any of them someday. I know there's an olive anders in Orlando and you get a want. I mean you have to pay like I. Don't know a lot of money, but. They can go inside you. Go inside with the want Ju and yeah. My friends have like their unique ones. Disagreeable that 'cause you I know in. Like some hairy shops I've seen before where they have like the characters, the character wasps, but yeah time your own. Wow, that'd be so fun. I wonder how many they design like.

"Allowed to have it at school And it's actually funny because my. This copy that we have sitting in front of US those. Book One. We actually I got from my mom, and when I went back to school to school in junior high. My mom started teaching there for a fourth grade. and. She sort of inherited the classroom from a woman who was retiring and sort of revamped the library and this book was in there As a children's book those acceptable for fourth. Graders 'cause. It's about that reading level by she realized like. It wasn't allowed to be so like it was banned. Not right away right away. Basically Yasser like gets snuck in under the radar. Yeah, I'm so. They didn't buy anymore. They only had one but my mom was like. We're not allowed to have these books at school, so she brought it home and that's funny. That's how I got his the band book though banned book that this book was was like sitting on our bookshelves for years before I read it, and. All this time I was sort of hearing from my best friend that like these books were amazing, and the seventh book was coming out soon and like. It was so stupid like I heard this tirade. Velika was so stupid that these votes were being banned because they're like incredible, and the girls are very aligned with Christianity and like. You actually read them. You would know not bad books lovable, and so I sort of had the script running in the background, but I was like too scared to try reading limb. And then. I. Remember the very first sort of. Glimpse I had into the Harry Potter. World was actually when I went to my best friend's house. They were watching the V movie. And I walked in at the exact moment that a very important character dies. And you all know if you've read it what I'm talking about. And the person who murdered them runs away singing about how she killed him, and that that line rang in my head over and over and over I had no context didn't understand who it was. I didn't know what movie this was. I didn't know who these characters were I. didn't know I didn't know anything, but that line was about socks rolling in my head for years before I picked up the books. And so, that was spoiled from from moment one. And then. I have the weirdest way of getting into these books. The first thing I did I'm was I actually started watching the movies because I was. My friend, the same friend was teaching me how to pirate movies now. So. I. Think I watched the movie? The sixth movie I I got, Serena. Isn't that weird? But he was because it had recently come out, and my friend was teaching out of pirate movies, and so like they sort of walked me through for this particular film which they had found as well. And, so I watched the sixth movie, not understanding and he. Slides off into the Merrill. Just start with, but I loved it I didn't understand what was happening at all. It raised so many questions for me. It's sort of turned into Like a mystery that I had to solve, because was like who is this and who is this? And how does that work and like it sort of got my mind going and I was like. Oh, now I need to get into this I need to concern to say because I watched the third Lord of the Rings I and decided I had no interest. Notably athlete. I had no connection Freddie thing loon. Saw God. You are encouraged to read it. I was turned off from reading. Watching the ratings have is like screw you all to my friends. She wanted to watch it. I think I, watched the movies I and that got me and my brother into them. We like. Watch them together. And then. We asked so I asked my friend if I could borrow the books. and they have two siblings who also re read these books, and so back in the days when you would line up outside the bookstore to buy the books, each sibling would get a book because you couldn't sit there and wait. Sibling to finish the book before you could read it yourself. And so they had like multiple copies of every book, and so I got one of them I gave them back eventually so I borrow them. And then over Christmas. Break One year in high school I. Don't remember what year it was. Like my grandparents were saying at our house lake. I should not have been doing, but I locked myself in my room and read the entire series in a week my gosh one week. Books One two and three, you can finish day. I learned that yes, books three is a challenge to finish a day, but it's possible. It took twelve hours. Both one into were easy. Book three was. Cutting, close I was very tired by. But it's like such a good mystery. The first time you read it after finish. It meal seven books. You read them in seven days. It was it was like a week and a half? Okay, 'cause books once. A. Week seven days to save an overnight ten days all my that okay fine I only stopped to eat and sleep I. Think I lost weight that weight as I like to very many nails. I was just like locked in my room. The whole time and sort of emerged bleary, eyed to be like. What time is it day, is it? My parents would be like. Hey, how's it going? On. And then. That was finally on board in the fandom to see movies seven eight when they premiered, which was. When I felt like I had really been adopted into the family, when I was like there for the midnight premiere with everyone those were really important moments for me I think so I was like I'm experiencing this with everyone else I've caught up United States. That was his almost at the age. Look a little bit young. We are the initial Harry. Potter like fans US I mean. We were three years old, the first books or come out, so we were not reading them by any means. Yeah, until much later Yeah, I like similar. Similarly I read them consecutively. I didn't like I go to school i. didn't hear them all on the week and a half, but I did in the sixth grade I picked up. The first Ron I don't even really know of empathize I. Don't really remember having much. Knowledge of Harry Potter I do remember feeling a little weird about it in the sense that I knew that not everyone was okay with it I I asked my mom recently. If she had any qualms about meeting. Harry Potter who she never stopped me. is they she never. I appreciate that audited what I was reading. We would talk about it and she would like. Tell me things that just like you don't like a book or if they're saying he don't think you should be reading that. You would just put it down And asked her I'm like yeah I knew the risks. Parents who are okay with the I trusted. You're eating. I didn't know much about it and I'm like. For you mom I went to. A public charter school,.

Four point eight percent of their adjusted income in two thousand eighteen. So that's an interesting fact. And then it says the bottom five five states Arizona. Florida California Hawaii Nevada are located in warmer climates though colder states. Such as New Jersey Michigan also made the bottom ten Washington and fell significantly in this ranking dropping from first place in two thousand eighteen to number twenty one this year so basically they look at all the different things going on in these states in terms of tweets and social media searches and things like that and they said Tennessee is number one North Carolina Utah Ohio and Alabama round out the top five states the most holiday h ear the reports based on ten measures which include Google searches for Christmas shopping trends. The number of Christmas songs streamed number of Christmas tree farms per capita and the amount of charitable donations. Tennessee is known for few Christmas traditions. That may help explain. Its top spot this year for more than three decades more than one hundred two players have performed Christmas carols at a church church in the heart of music city in December and Franklin a city just south of Nashville holds a festival. Each December where visitors can see. People dressed as characters from Charles Dickens. A Christmas Carol.

"Vanessa one of the things that is really in the chop, too. But it's absence struck me was just as the six of them are walking from room to room and having these strange experiences with the veil. And with this kind of see of brains is that Volta more and the death heat is a concealed and probably watching them in some way. I mean, I don't think that just sitting there waiting in that whole of prophecies. And so that made the whole thing even more eerie you know, when you know as a reread, that, that there are concealed is following the whole story. Yeah. It's that weirds me out about London, although the United States has certainly come a long way toward meeting Linden there. But I remember reading articles fifteen twenty years ago about the C TV the closed circuit TV video cameras, that are up all over London, and that they're basically, like there's nowhere in London that you can go without being recorded, I was horrified when I first learned about that. And I think that, you know, to are familiar. Theme a few weeks ago you get used to these things. But the idea that I can't be concealed and Lord knows I'm not committing any crimes. I'm just like going out without brushing my hair, but like it was a very oppressive feeling to me to think that there are places in the world that I could go, where I couldn't be concealed one of the few upsides of that, is that it solves many points in my current favourite TV show line of duty. I feel it. That's why so many great. Crime shows are set in London. Maybe. Oh my goodness. That's fascinating. Because it's like well, we can always just go into the CCTV. The other thing that I'm just interested in. Casper is the things that we conceal from ourselves. You know Harry keeps going back and forth as to whether or not he thinks serious is dead. And there's a line in the chapter that says unbidden voice inside his head was like, bringing up maybe serious has died. And to some extent, Harry knows that series isn't that because he, he thinks he would feel in his scar. But I wonder the things that I can seal from myself all the difficult truths. Who we just hide from ourselves in order to function until ourselves? Prettier stories uneven on a on a kind of less, intense level. I find myself wanting one thing on a Tuesday, and another thing on a Wednesday and then a third thing all together on Thursday. And I feel not even in that case that I'm actively concealing them from myself, but that they are just concealed from me. And I'm like, why con I know all these things all at the same time and then make decision. Yeah. I mean, I think I've said this before, but one of the fears. That plague me are like what is the thing that everybody knows I'm bad at that. I just am walking through the world wing. Like I don't even know that. That's a thing, let alone that I'm bad at. It said he's second recap. That's not it. It's the thing. I know I know exactly how I am thirty seconds or get so. Yeah. I guess I think that, that's the point of friendship. Right. Or community is to even if they don't tell you, the things about at sort of, like secretly have your back for the things that you're bad at because they know we'll just say, you've got spinach in your teeth. Yeah. Like, please don't conceal that from me. Everyone. Vanessa this week with continuing with spiritual practice of sacred imagination. And I've chosen a passage, which doesn't have a lot of character driven plot. This more descriptive, so I really want to invite you and everyone listening to focus on the physical surroundings. What can you see the echoes is there a smell of the place? What's the touch on your skin, or under your feet to see if we can understand more about this very mysterious place within the ministry that we're really seeing for the first time in his dream Harry had always walked purposefully across this room to the dual immediately opposite, the entrance and walked on? But there were around a dozen Dole's here, just as he was gazing ahead of the doors, opposite him trying to decide which was the right one that was a great rumbling noise. And the candles began to move sideways, the Sutculer wool was rotating. Hominy grabbed Harry's com as though frightened the floor might move to, but it did not for a few seconds the blue flames all around the blood to resemble neon lines as the wolves sped around them then quite as suddenly as it had started the rumbling stopped, and everything became stationary once again. Isn't that fascinating? I'd never noticed the candles before the turn into a line. Yes. And the fact that this blue candle light can we talk about that, like I'd never thought about the room in that way? What did you notice? I mean, it reminded me of my experiences with earthquakes and how the last earthquake I felt the first thing I noticed before I felt myself moving was that the lighting fixtures suddenly started swinging, and I was like, how did that start fitting? And then I was like, oh, the whole room is she a gang in just that feeling of like not being able to figure out what's moving and why. Right. And like it's often something on trains, where you're like is my train moving is that moving. And then you like try to feel like is the vibrating. No, it's the other train moving and, like, how disorienting that is or the other thing I hate is why do people keep. The window shades on planes down while you're landing. I like want to know when I'm gonna hit the ground and so, like, not having the visual cues to understand your, physical whereabouts can be so disorienting. That's what I felt right? Like I was her money, reaching out for hairy literally, what is happening in this room right now. The thing that really struck me was because of this blue light. I mean, I think of hospitals that kind of very cold lighting, maybe it's very dark, ever wells, this is the only light that we see. And so the whole area especially we're gonna see this room with brains. Like I'm suddenly seeing this more as a medical complex rather than to me it, had that Hogwarts in kind of medieval Kossovo vibes in my head until reading it this time. And now I'm seeing as this kind of more clinical space, right? Like maybe a terrifying wold where all sorts of scary medical things are happening, and there's nobody there. It just became much more like a horror film, rather than kind of a historical romance adventure, right? I mean, it also reminds me of grin gots, right? The way they like green, God's intentionally tries to confuse you. I mean, Hogwarts does this to a large extent to with the moving staircases it seems as the magical world is trying to constantly disoriented you with where you are in physical space in the way that they travel with flu powder? Right. Like one of the reasons I love to walk so much is that it's just like a very human pace to move. And it's, it's literally or reentering I find that always such an interesting idea like, if you'll flying or you're traveling along distance fostered than the speed of, you know, human power that you'll soul takes a few days to catch up with you and dump feels true to me in some sense that, you know, you're really not quite old that until you know, your body has kind of acclimatized again, you're able to move at a speed which seems biologically reasonable unlike flying. I'm still actually unable to explain physically. No, I'm like this thing is heavy in the wings aren't flapping. So why are we seeing something called lift? But I don't know. Yeah. Whether any other senses of maybe sound or smell that you experience this time. Well, the other thing in this could be because I you're welcome. Everybody talked so much about vomiting and this episode, but I'm someone who gets motion sick ends like the idea of like the spinning like, and I can't imagine wall starting to spin how sick I would feel like I feel like her. My knee is possibly holding onto Harry just because she's like I'm gonna throw up the other thing, that's so startling is the rumbling stopped, right? This is a loud. This is not a silent process. So, again, in the sense that the trying to conceal some things, but other things that just being flagrant about, as they move through the ministry. I mean this noise is clearly going to draw attention from other stove or people nearby. The other thing that just struck me is that it must actually be the floor that's moving because if the whole building is shifting things would fall. I know magic. Weird. But, like I wonder if because of the relativity of how movement feels it looks like the walls are moving, and it feels like the floor isn't because they're standing on the floor. But what would make the most sense in a physical way, is if it was the floor that was rotating and not the walls. I'm going to suggest not asking too many questions. Thanks. Thank you. Our voicemail this week is from Lorraine Heyman. Hi, arianna. Casta then saw. I just want to accurately, what everyone else has said in the past, thank you so much for the amazing work that you did on Harry Potter in the sacred texts in the odors, Phoenix, we all rift until king about Harry, dealing with quite a lot of trauma, that he's faced in his life, and that kind of accumulates at the end of the loss book with the death of Cedric, and it seems like in this book, Harry is that for dealing with the loss of his parents will later again, and maybe even feature loss around serious. And so this is something that I went to, to kind of bring attention to because throughout my life, I've suffered various traumas, and I have a tendency to connect the traumas in a way that I don't do with the joyous things that have happened in my life. I often sit down, and I think, oh, this happened in my childhood, this happened to my family members and I've lost this person that person on my closeness sense of myself here and that. I'm actually it really doesn't help to connect them in this way. I'm wondering about festival. What you feel about that, with Harry because we, we do see his treatments all connected in that they will sort of lead to vote a more, but that if we break up the trauma, and we disconnect them when we think about them in isolated incidents does help. I don't know. But perhaps, when I'm dealing with my own Schumer's, I have found it, it really helps to not think of this trauma led to this trauma, which led to this trauma, because, as I said, I don't do that with the joyous things that have happened in my life. So why build up trauma because in that way it does accumulate? And so I just really wanted to what you thought soi about that. Thank he. Lorraine festival. Thank you feel message. I want to stress the I am not a trauma specialist. And so this is just one random slithering thoughts from far away. But the things that strike me one to, to link together a daisy chain of the joys as much as we do with the SARS and alive to me. I think is a very precious in powerful practice, and I sometimes do this, you know, people might have a gratitude journal think of one or two things that the grateful full before they go to bed. I like to do is to think of something I'm grateful and find something in that gratitude that leads me to another gratitude and may, maybe it was like, oh, I had a really nice time getting an ice cream with my friend today. Oh, that reminds me that I can walk to that ice cream place from where I live. I'm so grateful for that. And that reminds me that I get to live in a house where it's safe and warm and dry..

So people often ask me how I ended up at divinity school. Fair question atheist ju I went to business school. I confusing and I never really have a good answer. Because I do feel like it was like fifteen years in the making. And it wasn't one clear thing. But what I can say is that it started. When I was fourteen years old and read les Miz by Victor, Hugo for the first time this book blew me away the opening hundred pages of the book. There's this really intense moment in which a priest opens his home to an ex convict, and he serves him dinner, and he invites him to spend the night and the the guest in the middle of the night steals, the silverware from the house, and he's like if I just deal this I could change my whole life. And I could live a different life, and he gets caught by the John d'armes by the police, and he gets brought back to the priest and the gendarme says to the priest. He says this man says that you gave him the silverware and the priest says, yes, of course, I gave him the silverware not only did I give him the silverware. But Sean Valjean you forgot the most precious piece and gives him something that John Valjean decided not to steal. And this just blew my mind as a fourteen year old the idea that you could respond to violence with peace and not only with peace. But with something more than peace with an almost form of restorative piece. Right. Not just with saying. Yeah. I gave it to him. But adding a layer of generosity to that. He says not only is it. Okay. That you stole from me. But you are clearly someone

"Violence done against spin it. And so I think that one form of corruption is a victimless crime. Like, none of the students are. Getting homework slither ins could also use that extra time to practice. It's just a choice. She's making for a corrupt reason. But the way it plays out in the world doesn't impact in a crap way where snakes clearly corrupt clearly benefits. One over another one of the key challenge. If mcgonagall goes down this route. And she does it doesn't leave him much of a leg to stand on if you know students come and complain about snake, right? So if students say, well did this thing he's giving people preferential treatment, right? She's just let all the Griffin does off Scot free without homework and explicitly said, Doronin hurry, please go and work on on the quidditch. She she claimed some sort of moral superiority and take on snipe for that kind of behavior. Now, we can talk about gradation of awfulness snake always wins that challenge, but nonetheless, like she has already been demoted in times of umbrage kind of taking. The power. And now she's losing to some extent some of that moral power because she's playing the same game. That's nape is. I also think that potentially gives her she might lose moral points. And I take your point on that. But I think also breaking the rule with somebody creates intimacy, and maybe the thing that run inhering need right now is a little bit reminder. Like, hey, I'm on your side. And like there's nothing right. Like thickest thieves if you have committed a quote unquote crime with someone there's just intimacy to that. And that just seems so materially different than the corruption that sleep is clearly like trying to get away with here. And so I think that macgonagall can justify this as positive and a lot of different ways of like, nobody is hurt by this slithering or not getting a disadvantage, and like, Ron and Harry. No, I like care about them. I think the thing that really bothers me is when it's done without openness the thing about corruption is does it give some people astray. Actual advantage over others, and what's hot, especially in political systems. Is that old politics is relational to some extent right like to get things done in a political system, you need relationship to kind of grease the wheels. And where is the boundary between taking you out for drink? Unlike building a relationship, and so that we know entrust each other as I'm buying you lunch, and maybe some plane tickets, and oh, by the way, his a lifetime subscription to your favorite magazine, Elle decor. Because in a way, then you'll buying something from me, right? Like, I don't want that subscription to magazines to end. And so if I don't really care about this vote like or I'm not really gonna invest the time in reading the Bill. I'm just gonna vote with you because you have my trust. Will you have you know, my magazines scripture in power so trying to figure out where's the line between like relationship and corruption can be really tricky. But what I like about mcgonigal's actions. Here is that it's very open. It's very public. It is in no way giving them. Structural vantage of anyone else in the close. And let me say also that like I love preferential treatment, I love giving it. Receiving and I love receiving it. It's usually for a reason. Right. I'm like, I'm going to be nicer to you. 'cause I like you. And I like you 'cause I trust you. And I trust you because you're a good person. So basically telling I've license to us anything at this point. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. That is exactly what I'm saying. Voicemail. This week is from cat Severin. I think you're texting my name is cat. And I'm from Chicago. I was listening to your episode about healing. And I related a lot to Vanessa struggles to get a diagnosis. I spent thanksgiving of two thousand seventeen in the emergency room and spent the year since trying to figure out why I've had a lot of invasive tests, including three colonoscopy is before the age of twenty five. I've lost a ton of weight. I've changed my diet. I'm doing everything. Right. But we still don't know what's going on. And I'm still in pain. And as I was listening. I was struck by the parallels between what I'm going through. And what Harry's going through? We both have physical evidence of the trauma that we're experiencing Harry was able to bring back Cedric spotty, and I do have some symptoms that are objectively observable, but. For both of us. We know something's wrong. And we know that if we don't do anything about it. It's not going to get fixed. And most of our evidence is our story. And we just have to hope that people believe us, and there's something so frustrating about that thing also being something that's inside of you for me. It's whatever's happening in my digestive system for Heriot's, the fragment of Olmert's soul that is continuing to give him evidence that yes, it wasn't just one year fever dream. There is something still wrong. There is something that still can be done. And. Not being able to get the help. Because people just think that you're asking for attention or that you have a low pain threshold. So I wanted to offer a blessing for anyone else who like me is still struggling to get diagnosed, and I hope that your medical professionals believe you. Thanks, guys cat. I believe you. And I hope that you get the treatment that you deserve soon. I can be a really long hard road. And it does not justify the sweetness of the diagnose is not beneficial suffering that like that diagnosis moment is gonna make it all worth it. But that diagnosis moment is sweet. And it is coming for you, which transitions really well to my blessing today, which is four spin it who has been hacked, and her eyebrows are growing really quickly. And even though there are fourteen I witnesses snipe chooses. Not to believe them. And instead says like she was asking for it. She was probably just trying to thicken her own hair. And she was asking for it. You just have a low pain threshold, you just want attention. These are things that we say to women when we want to dismiss them, and I want to offer a blessing to all women who've gone through this, and we can fight it by believing each other. And I believe we see us Banet. What about you casper? Well, I can't help. But bless Luna in this chapter now, I just love what she's doing and partly because I love costumes, partly because she's crossing house boundaries in a way that we have talked about something that's so necessary. Right. She's a raven clo- wearing Griffin dole mosque. But also because she is just failing and not caring. What people think of her or if she is fearful of like she lives through it? Anyway, she is a friend showing up to support, you know, people that she loves with a lion's role of support. And so may we be grateful for the Lunas in our lives who show up with that lions role?

"Flushed was flushing for both of them. It was like so exciting. Can we make this about distraction will in fact, the would distracted is in the text? So we read just as run is kind of in this days off to mining kisses him before the game the textiles he seemed to distracted to notice much around him. But Harry cost a curious glance of the crown-shaped badges as they possibly slithering table. Oh, Ron is still distracted from the kids. Yes. I thought he was then distracted at how nervous he was about the game. Exactly. And I think his whole game experience is influenced by this moment genuinely 'cause I think what we can perform well in front of her mind. Exactly. Yes. I think this is a major moment in that romance. Because we're going to see the relationship between and hominy around quip, specifically, get more and more intense, especially with the potion that's going to be shed to or is it and so runs already nervous in front of the whole school. But now Miami has about him not only that the brilliant moment of her money is that she kisses run on the cheek and then doesn't kiss hairy because it could have been like, oh, let me guys. Yeah. Good luck. But no, she doesn't even hug Harry. She's like very clearly communicating kiss. Like talk about sacred, secular, right? Like there is like a separation happening here right while I'm thinking of like what a kiss in those moments mean, right? Like, everything exactly. Like, it's both at like a kiss of goodbye before a battle. It's a kiss of like anointing, right? Like, it's the kiss of life off two hundred years of sleeping. This kiss is a moment of heightened connection. But it's it's also without words like so the meaning is still kind of open, and I just think Ron is all over the place, full casper. We know that her money is more evil dead inside strategic aware, then we like to think she never gets distracted from a goal. And she has just pulled the Harry aside and said like don't let Ron look at the badges, and maybe she kisses him to distract him. And like all her main plans, it just goes to well, and she just checks throughout the entire game. This will be so heartbreaking. So you think maybe she's just like strategically giving Rana kiss on his cheek. So he won't notice. How awful everyone else's oil like to make him feel good Inc. At like, there's no bad side to this. She makes him feel great before he sees a badge. And it's like whatever money loves me or he's like oh. And like so flustered by the he doesn't notice. But I think there's integrity to this. I think that she likes Ron, and I think she knows that Ron likes her and is not like, she's compromising her integrity in any way by offering this kiss. But I think she's like now's a good as good at times any ramp thing up, so is not destruction. Because I would say that that relationship is more important than this quidditch game. And so on that right now. That's so true. Right. Because like what makes it distracting? Does it have to be irrelevant in order for it to be a distraction? Oh, interesting some offer an anecdote instead of an answer back. But I think it might be informative. So lately whenever I feel the desired open Twitter. I instead get up in rubbed the dogs belly. 'cause I'm like that is a more productive use of my time than going to Twitter in. It's also caught my attention to how frequently I feel like opening Twitter because the dogs getting a lot of belly rubs, and so Twitter is like just a distraction and the dog is just a distraction from the work. But just because it's more meaningful doesn't mean that it's not a distraction. It's a break instead of a distraction. Maybe what I love about that is that you're noticing when you're getting distracted. I mean that that's what I think is so hot it's so easy to fool into those habits. And suddenly, it's five minutes later. And you're like, why am I reading about raw blow giving commentary on the British politics. Like why? So in those cases, I think. Like, yet is a distraction in order for us to know, if it's distracting, we have to know like what the point of our work were being is in some way. Like, and I think one of the challenges with all of this is like a distraction isn't just about like distracting us from our work. So that we're more productive. And that when more, you know, working harder and smarter. Like, that's not what life is about. Yes. It's about contributing in some way. But I wanna put something bigger than my work on my productivity or the economy at the center of my life. And so, you know, if you look at monastic cultures I love that idea that so much of what happens in a monastery is full the glory of God to use that language. Right. Like, it's about something bigger than me or about what I'm doing. And at the same time like that's so hard to do every day. And like, I know precisely like maybe three people who are able to do that. That's a lot right? And I mean, there will monks like that's the thing. Right. There will monastic people. I don't know why I'm thinking about that. But that's something that because to some extent. What has happened is my brain has become distracted in by going to the dog instead of opening Twitter in that moment of distraction. I'm like, let me remind myself about things that matter connection with other living beings. So I'm gonna go and like the dog is a reminder that this is what matters and then go back to my like meaningful work, rather than let the moment of distraction determine my next step as sort of reactive to boredom which isn't necessarily what's happening. Exactly. And so just because I've gotten up for my work doesn't mean I'm distracted from my work. It means I took a moment of distraction and made a meaningful moment out of it. Whereas if I just gone onto Twitter, I would have just gotten distracted upon distracted. I think we're becoming more and more weather that those moments where we go to social media or we go to a news platform. Our attention is what gives companies prophet. And so one of the things that you read about in the papers now around Silicon Valley is that the, you know, the most senior. Executives in these big tech companies all the strictest about the children, not using screens all engaging with tech until they're much older because they know how a dictator of these platforms are an it's the tree changing the wiring and op brain so that one of the jobs that I heard a futurist talk about like that'll be a real thing in like twenty four thirty is like a neuro protection person like that. You'll literally like blocking things from getting to your brain because it would shape distract it from you know, the thing you'll creating all the work that you're doing all the life even that you're trying to live. And so if we can train cells, which is so haunt to do what you're doing. That's a beautiful transformation of of distraction that saps something from us to something that creates more connection in our lives. That's powerful. I mean, so now I'm on Twitter three hundred hundred instead of four hundred. This week's episode of Harry Potter and the sacred tax is brought to you by shudder 'em Sundance. Now's new show discovery of witches adapted from Deborah Harkness's bestselling all souls trilogy.

That's discovery of witches TV dot com and promo code Harry Potter. So let's talk about the game Vanessa because Harry is totally distracted in the early stages of the game. Right. Harry's job is to go find the snitch, but he spends like Neely a minute. Just watching the game take place. He's listening to the commentary. He's watching the play as of course, Ron is playing. So he's eager to see what happens, but he is way out of it until Angelina screams at him. And he's like horrified once he realizes that he's being so distracted. And part of the reason why he's distracted is that. He is the slithering singing, right? We've already heard snippets of the song. But now like, at least a culture of the school. And I have a sense that some raven close a singing to maybe just for strategic reasons because they won't Griffin dole to lose. But this whole song about Weasley is king is happening. And it really made me think about how song is actually a great protest tactic. Like this leather ends. We can judge for all sorts of things, but they are good at using public protest right now like singing and public is so Discomp. Relating like, it's unknowable that you're able to distract things that are happening. So often people doing direct action will will be singing as they put that bodies on the line. But because it gives one another courage, but also it's a way of communicating a message in a way that if ban is taken down, you still literally have your voice. So I feel like this leather is giving us a social Justice workshop here. Chore? Also, I was distracted by the vaccine Drako at the end is like I wanted to say something mean about Molly. But I couldn't think of anything that ranked with fat. It's literally one of the easiest words to rhyme with bat rat everywhere drat. That with the g not as with Jason. But yeah, what's interesting to me about that is also that drako's whole strategy for catching the snitch is to watch hairy and the hairy has more complex strategy of looking for the snitch while keeping an eye on Drako. I think that that might be a sort of like part of like affiliate spinner benefit to Harry's tactic of two things to concentrate on. So he can't once he's in a is no longer worried about Ron he can focus more because he's paying attention to two things was drako's focus on Harry. It's a bad strategy. Drako has I think Harry strategy is bad because I don't think he's is concentrating on wrong. I think this is one of those classic situations where we want to help a friend. But what would doing is not helping the way to help Brown is to go and cuts snitch? So that like he can get off the pitch as soon as he can. But I think that Harry doesn't want Ron to feel rescued. He wants Ron to have a killer. Save

"Hello, friends, Harry Potter and the sacred text. Did you know we're coming to California on March twenty first we will be in Los Angeles, California and on March twenty four th we will be in the bay area. We're doing live shows in both cities. And we love you to come. Find your tickets and find all other details at Harry Potter sacred text dot com and click on the big orange button. That says life shows casper. Are you gonna Applegate there or take your broom, oh, I'm planning to use the flu network because actually California has famously wide flus? Sure. Chapter nineteen the lion. And the serpent Harry felt as though he were carrying some kind of talisman inside his chest over the following two weeks. A glowing secret that supported him through his classes and even made it possible for him to smile blandly as he looked into her for. I'm Vanessa tan and I'm cusp Kyle. And this is Harry Potter and the secret taxed. Every summit my family, and I would drive the eight hour drive from far Stroh in England all the way to the north of Holland while my family had like a shed house and eight hours is like a long time to be in the car with three sisters and two parents and the only so many times you can play torn by Natalie umbrella on repeat, and so we would invent all sorts of games to kind of distract ourselves. And some of the games included if you'll stuck in traffic, do a puppet show with the little hand puppets that we have in the car or if you're my sister like polio pants down and moon. Everyone who would drive in possed because we didn't have a TV as kids. We would pretend that the window in the car was a TV like what's on your. But sitting in that car driving being with your family, but also kind of alone if you put on your headphones or something I have some of my happiest memories playing these silly games to help time poss and a theme for this week's compensation is distraction, which immediately to me sounded kind of negative, and it made me think of these companies were actually like the distractions became the fun of the journey. Like it became more than a pasta. I'm it became a pup of the journey. Like, this was a way that we'd sing together that we wouldn't right? We'd sing along to the radio. And so I I'm really interested in thinking when is destruction something that hides from the thing, we should be engaging with and when is actually the very thing we should be paying attention to. What did you see question doesn't the story? Make you want to learn how to drive no. Because I love looking out the side window looking at the TV. XM we're in the car together. And I'm like, you're Terrel navigator. You can be like I was just looking at the TV just watching TV. I hope I'm a good navigator. We're actually my favorite navigator. I'm not kidding. When children. I I took a long road trip to Kentucky. I kept giving instructions by saying take a left and no point two miles, which is how you would say in English and he kept saying, so what is it? If it's no point to. I got so annoyed. It took me like fifteen minutes to understand what was going on. Before we continue this rigorous conversation of sacredness. It's time for the thirty second recap. And I have the honour employer of going first this week Asper. Excellent Vanessa here, we go three two one go so hairy Enron have there like I beg quidditch match together in her money. Kisses run on the dozen carry on the. Ooh. And the game like Ranasinghe really poorly in slithering scores on them. I think like three times, and then it's okay because Harry catches the snitch. But while Harry is like celebrating crab Goyal hits them really hard with the bludger. And then they start saying all these terrible things about Ron which they've been saying the whole time. And finally, they just can't take it anymore in Harry them one of the gyms punches them doubled. Doubled. Average is like no. Banned for life. I didn't really get there. You know, study two seconds, thirty seconds. What's the difference? Do. Okay. On your Mark get set go. So we hear Weasley as king Weasley as a king. He say the thing Weasley as king and little do. They know how awesome that's gonna be laid up. But for now, it's like, oh, full and bad. Because why would you wanna be a cold king by this leathermans? Also, Luna creates a lion head, and because of the movie, I always think of it. It's like the stupid costume. No. It's frigging scary because it rolls, but she didn't have time to get up and come out of its mouth. Anyway, she's in the stands. Everyone's watching Harry gets the interest in time even though Li Jordan macgonagall like it's bad. Suit. You didn't take the fact that I didn't get to the last leg five pages of the chapter as a sign that maybe you should focus on them interesting. Okay. Correct. But mostly because I wanted to focus on the key things of the chapter. The fact that like macgonagall number have this big fight about ham. She bandings and turns out she can because she's I'm bridge. And she got even more powers from the ministry. Yes. I agree that none of that is as important as costumes in songs. Correct finesse. I wanna start thinking about this theme if destruction at the very beginning of the top two because as you read in the opening sentences, Harry feels like he has this like talisman in his chest. Right. Like this. This sense. Of sneaky, hopeful empowered something that helps him enjoy the difficulties of potions and defense against the dot cots. Right. Like he has something else where his mind can live. He can go into his mind palace, and like be excited about remembering that Ron can do this job. All never can do this. This jinks or something in this case again, it's like it's something positive, right? Because it gives them hope and it gives him meaning to the suffering. It's helping him make it through just a hard time. So I don't think it's giving meaning to his suffering. I think it's helping him through his suffering. That's not the same as making meaning of it. It's not saying some things are going to be hard. But it's going to be worth it in the end it saying some things are hard. And you don't need to focus on the hard thing. My mom used to say to me. I always wanted to write from age of eleven and whenever I do anything awful. My mom would say it'll make for great story. The end like I had a dual reaction to it. Like, that's not enough reason for me to go. It didn't make the suffering. Okay. But while I was there. I would always pretend to take notes just like right down story adorable reminds me, my friend Caroline has a life multo, which is story value over comfort. So like any situation with his potential story. Like makes it what? Things like that. So I disagree with Caroline, right? Why love I would never choose story. Value over comfort when I have to do something the stories, I tell myself make it better. He's not excited about suffering in this moment because he gets to tell a story about the suffering later telling himself a different story while he suffering, right? Like his mind is able to be productive elsewhere because he's planning the next lesson. Only starting to think about you know, what else the DA can start doing. I had to look up talisman, and it made me think of another exciting potential distraction, the definition most of you probably know is an object typically an inscribed ring or stone that is thought to have magic powers and bring good luck. And I was just thinking that Harry is handed one with the coin that her mining creates. And it's like this thing that he can hold on his pocket. Right. I'm a big believer. And like. Having a literal touchstone or touch coin or like something that reminds you of something positive. It's what I think the Catholics have great with the rosary beads and with the Saint cards, and there's something that you can physically turn to you in shrines. I think all of that is so important, and I love her mind. He gives everybody this one that right? All you have to put your hand on your pocket, and you have a second of respite I loved off from this on the as well as thought sacred object that you can hold onto that reminds me of something bigger something. Holy even very ordinary object. Like fidget spinner or stressful like, these are also material culture that we engage with they distract us not from like, the everyday, but actually from perhaps negative thought patterns that we have will the give us something to do instead of going down like a doom spiral. So I'm just even thinking of him playing with this coin in the classroom, not necessarily like it might be this image of a beautiful weld or. In a freedom that he's working towards, but it might also just like keep him from like shouting in the middle of the clause. Well, I think that we see the difference between secular in a secret experience of this galleon with the difference between Harry and Ron's reactions to it. Cool hairy is like, oh, this is symbolic. I just have to be sure that I don't spend it with the rest of my galleon, and Ron is like like I could ever end to him. I think that there is a negative. Shame spiral thing of like, this is the closest I'm ever gonna get to having a gallon in my pocket. And so I think that for Ron it has a more secular profane weight to it. Whereas for Harry, it's just a reminder of like, I get to teach. And I'm standing up against this woman. Who's oppressing me? And she doesn't even know it, which is such a helpful commentary on how symbols might be the same in the world, but place differently for each of us, depending on the contextual life experience that we've had right like crosses can be. So peaceful. And so beautifully experienced and an experienced some very positively now, but as a child, I was like, oh, this might not be a place where I'm welcome. And then I think like part of the brutality of the practices of the K K K in the sixties is that often like black communities are very Christian communities, and they were using this. They were using burning crosses a violent act. And so to have something that should be wrapped up in like your redemption on your salvation become a violent symbol as awful. Right. So. So casper, a very exciting little moment happened in the book that I like personally had a sacred imagination moment with which is when her money kisses Ron on the cheek I like flushed

"Child. She's the type of how to tempestuous young love affair. And then the like social services will like inappropriate. No, take the child. I keep wanting to exchange validate what you just said also. I sorry. Let me try casper phrase. I loved that. I keep wanting to replace the word prophecies with promises. Because right. A promise is an attempt to like prophesized, your own future actions and says, can you tell Katie I'm not making any promises. So I know that in the context of the book that you do sound just like my mother is supposed to be an insult. But my mom is here. So I'm gonna pretend it's a compliment. And it's you sound just like my mother, which makes me wanna promise something, right? Like, I mean, we see this right? We see this in the books that like prophecies become more likely to become true. If you tell people about them full damore finds out about the prophecy. And then makes it about Harry. So it feels like let's make this a public thing this prophecy. I don't know. That's the best. I could do I like something casper. Something casper. The thing that's striking is that. I'm not making prophecies in Harry's voice. And what if we read that lost lying in Harry's voice? You sound just like my mother we've been playing with imagery of going. I'm returning back. And we've known that at this point he seen he seeing lily, right? The mirror of our said lillies going to be present with him again. But as more of these memories that coming back to him and especially since series is on the scene. Right. And he got that scrapbook from high grade like more and more of his own family is coming back to him. And so just how a phrase like that. Which is you say usually is used in a derogatory way for Harry would be the greatest compliment. And I don't know why. But I'm suddenly feeling that like Luna in some way has that. I would say pasta like that caring like just present loving witness to Harry in a way that you would want from a mother, right? Like, she doesn't ridicule him for seeing that like there's something. I don't know. I just imagine. What if he said up to Luna? Luna's the best. What about you are young? Yeah. The meeting I made from it was a lot more abstract. I was thinking about the word mother and prophecies together and thinking about how so much of what my mother does is like hope for my future. Right. When you make good choices whenever I'm leaving the car. Like, why don't you go to law school? You know, everything is about like this deep desire in her that I be good in. Okay, and successful in my future. And she doesn't have any control over that. Like, I'm an adult. But it's what she deeply wants. And so I guess I'm seeing can you tell Kadian it's letting go it's like you have agency in the world. Like, can you go do this thing? But like still this this deep desire for wellbeing, the loss of letting something go, but the knowledge that you have to which is what her my knee is doing by saying can you tell Katie right? Like, she is handing over a lot of power in. I think Harry to Angela Johnson. Okay. So it's your. This is one of the secrets that you'll realize Arianna in the studio will make a really insightful point. And then usually I'm not steal that sacredness comes out of conversation wrecked. So it's not stealing our s generating together. That's beautiful every dime deserve. Thank you. Everyone off our ledge. Let's. Friends with coming towards the end of the show. And I'm so grateful to all of you for standing. You are amazing. So I'm going to the final time to turn to to a person next to you and share a blessing for someone in the pages of this book or any of the Harry Potter characters or really anyone tool because we don't get to bless each other enough. I believe in this life, so just onto someone perhaps someone you've spoken to ready share a blessing. We'll come right back off to that. Okay. Okay. Everyone. Thank you so much. So we have some blessings also. And I think Jeff would you be willing to go? I absolutely I want to bliss filch because I think that filch is someone who's lacking in the two forms of currency the matter, and they be HP HP universe, which is status and magical skills. Right. And so I want to bless filch because I think being henchman is kind of a hard job. And I want to bless him not in spite of being a henchman. But specifically because of that is this a reference to you not having a microphone. Noted.

"Just I just think that she's being held with caretaking standard because she's a woman, and like this is the right thing to do given the sport that they are chosen to play casper. Yeah. Well. The fact that they don't return to the quidditch pitch that she consuls the next practice to me says that she knows. It was a failure that she was like, no one could see each other. It was raining so hard like nothing made sense. Everyone just felt worse off towards I think I need to be more inventive. It's like if you're a. Gosh, what's that Dutch national sport ice skating like long distance ice skating? If it's if there's no ice like don't go on the water, and I feel like Angelina needs to think of what's the like skating equivalent of training for different weather conditions that quidditch games happen in those conditions. Whereas I e skating doesn't happen when lakes are swimming ball. That is correct. I stand down now. I'm gonna keep going anyway because I have. Money. And I don't think that not repeating something means that you thought it was a mistake or a failure. I think it's we've learned how hard it is. We've learned as much as we can. There's no reason for me to net. Right. Like, there's a return on investment of like. Okay. And now, I'm just exposing them to freezing cold for no reason. And I think it's actually a great leader. Who's like, okay. That was just hard enough. And now I'm going to stop. That's not an admission of failure. That's like a wisdom of balance because this is a new team, right? Rana's joined semi how to brainwave which is that the DA is actually also quidditch practice. Right. Because we have we got the whole quidditch team. They're the DA like nearly everyone. I think everyone is. And so this is totally like a team building moment. Sure that helps. Yeah. So what I'm saying is that she has innovated in leadership style. And I'm just saying that we hold women to different standards of men's comfort than we hold men too. Honky without if not a failure. Like, she's a tough, captain and good. Offic. Got on that.

This week's episode of Harry Potter, and the sacred tax is brought to you by audible, I don't know about you. But I get daily reports from my phone on my cell phone, use an audible is my most used app by like a lot even more than like social media things. Oh, yeah. Because I listen for hours a day. You'll like I will listen to people only if that very well uptick, you lated edited unscripted in a novel. Yes. Recently, Michelle Obama red meat her entire memoir, which was just generous of her. I love it when it's the actual oath. That's reading because you really got a sense of the tone. They meant in that writing and like feel it basically friends, and no I missed her win. Her book was on. I was like Michelle why'd you stop reading me to bed every night. It's still coffee time. Where are you? Exactly. I'm washing the dishes, where did you go? Go to OPEL dot com slash Potter. Text Potter to five hundred five hundred that's audible dot com slash P. O T T. Or text plotter to five hundred five hundred and listen for a change. I believe it's time for spiritual practice. Ooh. We are going to start doing this practice of dates, which is Casper's favorite. We actually agreed today. I'm so sorry. I did this that that joke's not funny anymore. We should stop. So that was the last time. I joke. So parties is a four step reading practice that is based in medieval Judaism, produces an acronym for shot Ramez draft and sewed, and the idea is that, you know, a text is as diverse as an orchard, and that you can just put your hand up anywhere in an orchard and grab a piece of fruit, and it will be juicy nutritious. And we can do the same thing with the Harry Potter books. We can pull any quote from this chapter. So can somebody please give me a number between three seventy four and three ninety six. I heard three eighty one. So there are one two three four five six seven paragraphs on this page. Can you give me a number one through seven seven great? So the sentence that we will be doing is hairy was thinking himself back. You would have said that no matter what I said. That's good. Okay. So page three eighty one Harry was thinking himself back. So the first step of price is shot in shot. Twee ask ourselves. What does the intended or the explicit meaning of the text to find it? So this is yet he and runner talking after quidditch practice, and Harry is telling Ron about the visions of voldemort that he's that scar hurt and he's sort of figuring out out loud. What voldemort has been experiencing Hari was thinking himself back. He's trying to remember what it felt like previous times when he felt vulnerables presence because he's suddenly explained like full demo- is angry. And he owning new it as he said it which I thought was such an interesting moment. And he's now remembering the other times when he's he's able to sense Volta most feelings without any Russian explanation of how he knows. It's not right. Yes. I like, it's really fun. I to try okay. Step two of her days is remers and remers is one of my favorite things that we do in the podcast. So we picked a word from the sentence. It means like an allegorical, meaning a possibly metaphorical meaning, but the way that. We do it is the way that rabbis have been doing this for hundreds of years, which is that you can pick one word and track. How that word is used throughout the Harry Potter series. So if we were doing this with the Torah, and we picked the word tree, we'd be like, ooh, where all the trees in the Torah. And we would talk about all the different times that we see trees in all the different meanings that trees can have. So I need your help. I am going to say the very tall person with glasses. Yes. You I want you to pick. One of these words Harry was thinking himself back. Back. Okay. So where else does the word back come up in Harry Potter books? I'm thinking immediately of the back of quarrels head where else back to the burrow back to the borough. Yes. Ten points. Slither that time Turner we go back in time. Okay. Moore's back want one. He brings Cedric back which I still think is like the bravest best thing. He sorry. The pensive you can go back in time and other people's memories. Yeah. That's strolls. How how? Oh, they ride on the backs of vessels. I I'm sure that's great. Actually, what is think you? And beats back, right. Like, they write on Beck's of a lot of things. I also thought of go back to or. Non textual strike that from the record. That's not canon.

"Dog. We call it death at play. It's really bad. For those of you listening at home Jaffna is a four legged dog. The painting is of a one legged dog. You know, we all have our talents. Anyway. But this was I swear this. This is about my mom and her siblings. So. Things got tensor between my mom and her siblings as my grandfather was aging and getting closer to the end of his life in my grandpa had a a habit of giving everything away. You would like sit on a chair, and he'd say like or are you comfortable and you'd say, yes, thank you. And he'd say do you want to take the chair, and like I was just saying I was comfortable, but things were disappearing from his house so much that my mom and her siblings. Agreed. Like, none of us are going to take anything from puppets house until after he's passed away. And we'll we'll figure out what to do with the stuff that my mom. My mom was his main caretaker toward the end of his life. And so she was there almost every day. And she went to visit him one day in a painting was missing from the wall in his bedroom. And it was very easy to tell. Because my grandfather had I wonder if any of you had eastern European Jewish grandparents, but there's a talent talent of hanging as many paintings on a wall that is cubic possible. And so if one goes missing, it's very obvious because you're like, I didn't know there was wallpaper on that. Wall in that moment, and this really wait on my mom 'cause like day after day. She would go in. There was this like empty wall. And she called her sister and said, can you bring the painting back like we? Agreed. My aunt said, no. And just really it was it was difficult for my mom and one day perfect. David texts me and says. Re missing painting solve it. Why did you do you like shut up at our ams house with like you're shining? Halo. And you're like box of chocolates in your flowers, and you somehow convinced her to return the painting, and he wrote back. Nope. Better than this photo. Again, for those of you who listening at home, he decided to make very generous donation of the great piece of our death at play. To my grandfather's wall. The amazing thing about this to me was that it worked, and again, you can ask why moment to the show. But I really do think it worked charmed her delighted her that her son had a sense of humor about his own failures. And she had raised children who could delight in these things even when she had such a difficult relationship with her brother and sister. And so I'm interested in talking to you about that tonight casper because I think that we see her mining take a real failure with SAP w and turn it into a success with Dumbledore army. And I think we see a lot of failures that changed into successes in this chapter. So that is my story, and you can go to Harry Potter sacred tax slash staff at play dot com in order to see this. If you're listening. Sorry, david. It is a remarkable piece of. But I love that that sometimes making the thing that we thought was a failure really visible and putting it in a different context where it can live a something that's joyful and life giving. Yeah. I look forward to digging into the text before you do that though. Are you ready to fail at a thirty? Second rica. Came to me belong to perfect. Are you ready? I'm ready. Yeah. Hey wanna count them in? Yeah. Account you in on your Mark get set go so chums apparently is the perfect time to debrief difficult conversation, then as a quits with rain, and so are we seeing the thing? And then they impose us the room faces which apparently works well to keep the rain off. And then he's falling asleep because he's doing potions homework. And like, hey, let me tell you about the room of requirement. And then they go and practice the first session, which is named by take of wonderful women. For you. I just I left you some things to Cup. That was really I'm very proud of you. Okay. You win three to one. We get to see Ron play quidditch, which is very exciting. We get. Harry's scar hurts, and he gets greasy inside Vollmer's brain or Jimmy trying to manipulate Gary. We don't know. And then. Yeah, Dhabi finds out about the tells Harry about the requirement and remind us like I don't trust, AVI. But then she's like oh Dumbledore set. So okay. And then so they use a room requirement and show try support with Harry, but everyone is always getting in their way. And the here's a pretty good teacher. Very. Anymore?

"On Zola. Go to Zola dot com slash Harry Potter. Finesse. I read a story recently, which I really liked as an image of how we can be fully in the things that would good at standing up power. And it's from this wonderful book about the Jewish spiritual path Musab an in it tells the story about rabbi Hutzel, LeBron's key who apparently was like one of the most learned rabbis in all of Europe. And he's giving testimony in court and the judge asks him, you know, all you the greatest living Jewish legal authority in Europe. And he says yes that is true. And the judge says rabbi Bram sqi is that not rather Holte on your pot? I thought that you'll listen ethics. Teach you to be humble to. It's the rabbi says, I know we ought to be humble. But what can I do? I am under oath. And so he's just like, yeah. Like, I am the greatest living Scuola, and I'm not throwing that in your face. Right. Like you've given me that description, but I'm going to step away from the thing that I'm really good at. So famous I'm ending up with this question of can ever be useful to say, I'm better than someone else. Whether it's about a specific thing that you can do or in even on a moral level. I think yes, I've had two surgeries molasses months in by like all accounts, the second surgeon was a better surgeon than the first. And I wish that I had that information up front. I was just like, oh if there are surgeon at this renowned hospital. They must be a good surgeon, and I just trusted them. And like, I was fine. But I many complications with a much more minor surgery. And so, yeah, I do want to know who is the best and an I had sort of a not great first grade teacher, and my mom when it was time for my younger brother to go into the first grade requested that he not be put with my first grade teacher because she wanted her child to have the best teacher teaching him out of read. And I think that that's. Okay. I mean, this just gets back to like, you'll know it by its fruits. I don't think it's okay for the sake of itself. Like if you're just in a faculty meeting, and it's like who's the best teacher? Like, I don't think that that is productive or helpful. But children learning to read is like a high state in surgery is the high stake. And yeah, I I want the best don't you? But we can't all be in the classroom. And so how how do we make decision? Yeah. Gets to make well and feeling like my child took that spot away from another kid who's just as in titled to that spot. I think it's our responsibility to make a system in which all teachers are good teachers and also Jains are good surgeons. But I don't think it's our job to sacrifice our children's ability to learn by giving them a teacher who we know is not up to snuff. And so I think with that information we have to be saying, okay. Like, we need to pay teachers more to make sure that like that job is respected. And they really have the time inability to invest in learning these skills and on the nobody is fundraising on go fund me for classroom supplies, right? But I don't think that it was up to my mom be like, well, I know this teacher isn't very good. But I'm just going to send my son into. Anyway, I think that that's asking us to be like a conscien- level of idealistic that I'm not even interested in. So Vanessa this really interesting moment where some of these structures that we've been talking about really physically engage in the narrative. So at some point the boys want to rush into the girl's dormitory and Ron and Harriet kind of beginning to climb the stairs up to how many sleeps understands suddenly Tun into a slide. And they kind of slide all the way down, and I just love this image of like, the patriarchy is real men have violent tendencies and Hogwarts. The building knows how to stop them. So many things about this interesting. I fall that the boys never took it upon themselves to go visit her money, right? And then to just because Harry, and Ron haven't done this before does not mean that the girls have an this before because they are all elegantly going down the slide and like pot standing so like they have obviously had this happen to them enough times the variable to just like go down the slide gracefully. But then the other thing is I'm sort of pro slide. I think that right now women are more trustworthy than men, and it is because of thousands of years of patriarchy and a sense of supremacy that there has been like a training within men that they are entitled to things. Well, say mobile you mean when you say women will trustworthy is is that about specifically experiences of something like someone tried to get into our? Room that kind of thing generally around. I think that women have had more experiences of somebody subjugating them and taking away their power. And therefore, there's more empathy into they are more Ono. I didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable. Whereas men are more oblivious to the fact that they are making women uncomfortable. I don't think that this is intentional. And I'm obviously speaking in like, why'd brushstrokes like this is super super not all men, but I think that there is a culture around American maleness of right? Like all the things that are stereotyped, but like taking up a lot of room on the subway of token were meetings right in our up day. Like, I think that that creates an echo chamber of entitlement in. So I think intone we fix the patriarchy keep the slide while that's why you'll building a feminist production company Atta it's the metaphorical slide in all world. Canessa?
