Interview With Megan Kang
"I guess today is making king and she is a doctoral student at princeton in sociology. And she first came to my attention because as i was scrolling through my morning news feed this headline jumped up at me about how this person had embittered themselves among stop the steel trump supporters and wanted to really understand. Just not only what they thought. Because i think a lot of us know what they think. But it's more like what's behind that. Why do they keep thinking what they think. So i immediately reached out to megan. And i said man i would love to have this conversation. I think. Our country after the inauguration of president biden and vice president harris and we're right in the midst of this impeachment trial as recording this. We're still hugely terribly divided as a country. And i just wanna thank you for your willingness. Come on talk about this. We don't expect you to have any more definitive answers than anybody else out there. But i think your experience of spending a month of weekends at an intersection in florida is priceless. And so welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me can so you kind of come from this approach from what i could glean from your article that you're not just looking at data you want to imbed yourself because you said either walking in the shoes or at least near the shoes of the people that you're studying is very different than just looking at raw data is that is that accurate. Yeah that is accurate. So i guess one thing. I should point out about the word in bed. I that that was a huffpost like editorial decision more nefarious than what. I think i was doing. You know like a click bait thing. Sounds very intriguing but really got me. Click we get the impression that you went deep undercover. You know it it was. I think i would say more naive in that. You know i. I saw this group of people that had been standing on a corner where i had been doing grocery shopping over winter break. I happen to be in florida staying in my partners family's house kind of on accident actually. I need to go home to southern california. Where i know you're from kobe. Rates had gotten so bad. And so i decided to just stay put in florida where things a little bit better. So we saw them there for a few weekends. I learned from the the grocer that this group had actually been out there for the past six months and it had transformed from from pro trump rallies to part election to stop the steel rallies. Right after who does the same group of people consistently there. Every saturday morning. I think like many americans like you said had been had been having a hard time grasping this divide that we've been seeing our country and feeling like i was missing perspective. And so like you say. I think the the method that i i am drawn to is just going up and talking to people and asking them and that's something that i'm i'm getting trained to do as a sociology. Phd student and particularly a method called goofy and we prioritize personal experience and getting close to the issues and trying to understand people who are living those issues experience making sense of them. I'm just trying to imagine that as you almost use the word infiltrate as you associated as you kind of dropped in on these weekends at this intersection. I'm imagining that. There weren't a lot of people that looked like you already. They're like the regulars weren't anywhere close to people of color sets to say that's right. yes. I'm a twenty eight year old korean-american woman who was raised in california and has lived in berkeley oakland chicago detroit and princeton. So that just gives you a glimpse of my political. Leanings have influenced my thinking. This is in south florida. Florida's a quintessential purple state. it voted marginally for trump. in the past two elections. I was in one of the blue counties but only marginally blue and so very different political environment than the ones that i've used to and the group of people that were there. I had seen them before. They were primarily middle aged white and hispanic floridians decked out fully and trump gear. And we're definitely looked very different and clearly have different perspectives than anyone. That i'm around
Samantha Tomaszewski, social strategy leader, BuzzFeed, on career in social media audience engagement
"Today. We're gonna talk about audience work samantha. I think maybe a useful place to start might be with you. You're of course the social strategists of commerce for buzzfeed. He told me exactly what that means. Yeah so i. Focused specifically on buzzfeed has an entire shopping and commerce. Vertical on that helps generate revenue for the site so i focus on the Social strategy that has to do specifically with. Yeah our shopping. Vertical commerce that we have different facebook and instagram account We should affiliations through the app. Trying to get people to view and hopefully convert and shop from buzzfeed shopping's content and you'll training is actually journalism. Right yes yeah. I went to lehigh. University and i studied journalism political science. So how'd you go from as journalists to to what you do now because they seem slightly not far apart but they of course. Different skills and disciplines. Yeah an. I honestly think this is why i enjoy doing a lot of like student. Mentorship conversations is something that i do in my spare time because i love to talk to students about how i went from my studies university to Where i am now and the kind of important middle pieces. I also worked for huffpost for about three years as an audience editor. That was definitely more than new space before. I made the transition to commerce but it was definitely my treating from school. That got me there where i did study. You know a lot of social media. And i worked for my student newspaper editor-in-chief so i think a lot of practical experience that i get in college was able to help me leverage interviews and opportunities that they did come up after i graduated. This is going to be useful for more. We're about to about to talk about what i don't understand is where does your journalistic thread really still help you today. yeah i think in conversations with students are being active on twitter. And i think yeah. It's definitely helped me again. Even though i am in the commerce face now that i do approach it from maybe a different perspective somebody who has a marketing background or a different sort of training. And i think that's helped me sort of succeed in that role in yet. Maybe look at marketing ecommerce from a different lens at a different angle that kind of that journalistic training and news is still kind of always been like my passionate. My background yes. It's been cool to kind of approach. A new different challenge in like a slightly different discipline. With that lens. so samantha at the stop december. You had a twitter thread which seemed to go on a quite a bit of attention and just gonna take a few moments to read through that for our audience who may not seen it. You say i was on the mentoring cool with a student about to graduate college and she told me that a member of a fairly popular journalism organization gave her some discouraging advice. This person told her not to go into audience work. she was taught. That should be better off working in a reporter all covering political committee even if no one read her work. I was shocked. And that's really the main part of the the tweet you to talk about the kind of skills that you acquire through working in social and how that might help to make you a better journalist editor in chief had of audience etc and basically saying the audience. Work is a valid career path for me. What kind of stuck out with this. And what seemed to be the main thrust of the compensation that audience roles in journalism at least are perhaps not taking seriously as some of the more traditional roles still existent in the newsroom. So can you recap on. Wherever where this threat came from the impetus for that was sure. Yeah i expected to take off as much as it did but obviously it was very encouraging to see that so many people have strong reactions to it. And we're coming out in support of what. I was saying that that was great and i think it was just that i had spoken to the student and i had such like a you know on one hand infuriating but on the other hand like poignant sort of anecdote from her about somebody telling her that she shouldn't go into audience work in that she would be better off being a reporter doing work that nobody was even reading which doesn't really make sense to me. That was just. She clearly had been so affected by being told that even though her passion was an audience. I just wanted to try and you know in my conversation with her. I tried to tell her that. That certainly wasn't true. I've been able to find a path for it myself. But i just wanted to speak to that to the journalism community at large in some way Because i was so shocked that someone would tell like a growing journalists that I'm not asking you to to name drop of course but can you be more specific about the type of news organization. That had sort discouraged her in this way. And i don't even she didn't even name. I don't know the individual who it was and that's obvious he never would. It was about but you know a fairly large digital mu organization in one that does promote journalism and digital media yagi Specific affiliation with the organization. Or anything like that. You know what. I'm trying to get a picture of where that kind of attitude has come from. We're talking about you said digital media company based in the us deny yes legacy your print media. That's what was interesting is that it was coming from somewhere that i wouldn't have expected this sort of advice navy to come from interest and in your experiences this like an isolated event. You hear this a lot. Yeah i mean. I think i've also experienced a lot. Even you know by career so far in you know. Both of the newsroom's i've worked in and buzzfeed Post there obviously. The vast majority of people are incredibly supportive of the audience team. But i do think it is sometimes struggle to get your foot in the door in certain meetings or to get your opinions out by certain journalists. Who may be you know are entrenched in some of these older schools of thought about what even is audience worker. Why is it important. So i think i've seen that. There is still a learning process. Even when i've been in newsrooms trying to do the work that i do cleaning they'll put you off. No no because. I think it is. It is important so i think it's really rewarding when you do maybe get through to somebody who didn't understand how you can help them in. Their story goes viral on twitter. Because you mockup a tweet thread. That does really well. Then they see the value of it. I think there's constantly a need for audience enters to try to prove and show results and data for what they're doing and i do you know have found that rewarding as well to be able to show people like. Here's what we can do to elevate your work like look at works that it's really exciting. So i mean the thrust of that conversation. Was it very much. That audience roles are just not as integral to the newsroom. Or was it that they just kind of look down on a as i said from the beginning like not taking seriously. What was called the main bone of contention like disgust here. Yeah i mean. I think all of those things are potentially depending yet. I think who you're talking to. I think obviously. I was speaking to the student as like a career conversation. She was about to graduate and she was trying to figure out what she should pursue. So i think it was. You know maybe they aren't as integral to newsroom so she shouldn't do it because maybe they're not stability there but again i know i shared with her. You know it's just one experience. But i have. I've experienced stability in far in my career. you know. obviously they're always layoffs in media yet. I think against you that if you wanted to have a future in journalism she was getting told that maybe this wasn't the right path for her. Because i think that was another point in my thread is she has an interest in politics. She was getting told. You know if you wanna go into political journalism you have to be like a beat reporter and that's the only way you can get there but again i don't really think that's true and something else. I tried to outline in my throat is how many great skills you do learn being an audience that can transfer to being reported. You know people who have moved into production or product or any sort of area in media and beyond so. I think i was really just trying to emphasize that it is a valid career path. We shouldn't be telling young journalists that it's not
"huffpost" Discussed on Recode Media with Peter Kafka
"This is rick obedient. Peter kafka that is me. This is a special kind of emergency. Not really emergency edition of recook media. Because i'm interviewing jonah peretti who is the ceo. Buzzfeed is also the co founder of huffington post. Which is now health post which is now part of welcome john get to be here in california talking to me on zoom. So you've had a busy day. You announced You were acquiring huffpost. We can talk about the right verb you met with the huffpost staff. You met with the buzzfeed staff now. You're talking to me. What's what's the question between the buzzfeed staff and the huffpost staff. You've heard most often today I you know. I feel like there's a general feeling of excitement from everyone so far. Of course. I think it's more wanting to digest the news first and then. I think i'll get a lot more a lot more questions a so so far so far i think people are excited about. It was kind of a shocking morning. A for a lot of people. There's only a small team that knew about the deal. You're working on for a long time late into the night And you know just got it got it finished in the morning in time for the all hands some reading in the wall street journal this is actually one of these deals that came about it started at. Cas at the consumer electronics show So you've been working on this in some form or other since since january of this year. That's a long jesting deal. We we just had a regular business meeting at sea and in that meeting. I said you know you. What about huffington post. You know like you have huffpost. And i have of course. My personal connection is co founder and add some ideas about things we can do with it And that started the conversation. I had a connection with with guru rents rise in media. And so yes we are talking about it in a more casual way and then it it's sped up And here we are so. Was this something in january with you. Were thinking i would like to buy huffpost. I would like to bring that publication back or was it something else. Yeah i wrote unite. You know over a year ago. I wrote to to them. That was seen if it could be for sale and they told me it wasn't so i i sort of stayed at it and talk to them more and I think I think they like the idea of going back to a co founder and and the idea that we could do a commercial agreement and partner on some at innovation. Yahoo is really the only major platform where you can't get tasty content and can't get buzzfeed content so there was also a nice A benefit to doing deal where huffpost content and continue to spread across. Continue to be syndicated on yahoo soaking tasty buzzfeed news content so it expanded things for them and for for us so buzzes so verizon we can talk about some of the canucks but the big picture is verizon no longer has to operate or fund huffpost will get their content will get some buzzfeed content. It can it can spread around. Its its surface And you guys get what why. What is the appeal buying huffpost for you and twenty twenty. I love iconic brands that everyone knows so buzzfeed news tasty huffpost. Their internet content brands internet media rant. Everyone knows that have big audiences reach lots of people so lots of scale. I'm and all four of those brands have really loyal audiences who loves the mission of those services and so being able to bring together four of the most iconic internet media brands into one company felt really exciting to me. And they're the the other thing that appealed to me was that the brand and the audience and the scale was bigger than the business. And i think carter that. Is that verizon media so huge and they were very fond of have published by they also was very small compared to the billions of revenue. They do and so we can give it extra attention and if you look over. The last. Few years at the way buzzfeed is diversified revenue You know we've added in commerce. We've added you know donna. Deal with lionsgate to make films. We've figured out few different new forms of advertising from native programmatic creator driven advertising. So we can take all that work that we've done over the last few years and we extend it to to huffpost anything. Make this the size of the business start to match the size of the brand of the audience. So you said look. We're not we're not. Overlapping an audience. Here i think everyone who buys a internet company says they're not over overlapping. The audience seems really hard to believe with huffpost right. They've got a news thing they've got a culture thing. You guys have a news brand. You guys are a culture brand What am i missing. Why aren't these the same audience. I mean if you look at concert as you can see that. Overlap is not as much as you would expect. Now is the other thing that surprised me. I didn't have some nostalgic desire. To but i post i wasn't like oh i. You know my long plan when i left host was that i was gonna come back at. Oh new all that. that was not what drove. This is like we would sit down with our. We'd sit down with our team that was looking at at our competition and at potential deals. And we we do surveys data and outposts kept coming up as most recognized more recognized than really a lot of the competitors that were more buzzy in the in the trades of host was more well known and then had bigger audience and had an audience that was wealthier and not just old But but but all ages and buzzfeed really only has a young audience. We don't we don't really. Have you know the older more affluent audience at all and have it sort of all ages type brands that buying the buzzfeed audiences parents. Yeah also also the kids. I mean you know him. And the young people the youngsters So the the the terms of the deal that you announced this is an all stock. Deal doesn't always mean something but often means maybe not not as much value as as the seller thanks And then on top of that..
Journalists covering protests face assault and arrest
"We have to talk first about what we've seen in the past forty eight hours. The appalling targeting of reporters who are trying to tell America's story there is so much that so wrong about this situation first and foremost the video seem around the world, the video of George Floyd's final minutes alive. It's so wrong that it's hard to see, but it is right that we look. It is right that we bear witness. And it is right to see protesters taking action as a result, but it is wrong to see reporters and photographers and news crews, being assaulted and arrested at these protests, police firing rubber bullets at reporters. When their pores are holding up press badges. That doesn't belong in America authorities handcuffed reporters is wrong. That's what happens in authoritarian regimes, not in America, but yet it happened again last night in Minneapolis and in New York. These threats against the press, not just coming from police. In recent days, protesters have ganged up on the press in trouble cities. We've seen a photo journalist attacked. We've seen on TV. News crew chased out of a park. That is wrong. Rioters destroying TV. News vehicles and stealing cameras is wrong. Almost everybody knows this, and it's right to call it out and say that America is better than this. Reporters don't want to be the story. They just WanNa, tell the stories of the protesters and the police and the residents of these communities that want to be able to feel safe. Some of the examples of what we see in in terms of reporters, seemingly being targeted this for example was on Friday and Louisville. is a local CBS reporter and her cameraman in Louisville, Kentucky apparently shot with pepper balls while live on the air Later, the police apologized to the station, but we've seen other reporters that here's Dallas for his other reporters being being hit by rubber bullets. Tear gas there. These situations we've seen in a number of different cities I'll read some other examples to you. A reporter in Columbia South Carolina was hit by a rock and had to be taken to the hospital. Here's a freelance photographer in Minneapolis. who was shot in the left eye while covering the protests? He says she's been blinded in. One of her is as a result in Chicago Chicago. Tribune, photographer. Photographer said looters shoved and stole her cameras in DC. This is in Washington and Lafayette Park a Fox. News crew was harassed and then chased out of the park by protesters who were cursing and screaming at Fox News and criticizing right wing media. This is deplorable behaviour by protesters. We've also seen in LAS. Vegas. The arrests of two photographers police took these photographers into custody. That is completely inappropriate Out The next morning, you know we need to follow up on these cases and make sure that people are held accountable when these incidents happen, reporters should not be the story in these cases, but it's happened again in the past few hours overnight here in New York City. A reporter for Huffpost was arrested while wearing police badge and covering the protests in Brooklyn in Minneapolis Angeles, Time staff writer had police firing tear-gas remember bullets at point, blank blank range at her into a crowd of protesters and journalists. We're going to talk to her and just a moment. Reuters cameraman also said He. He was hit by rubber bullets. Some reporters have had to seek medical attention. A news crew KCRW says. The LAPD shouted her rubber bullets as she was holding her press badge above her head, and at least one case as I mentioned. We've seen protesters being the aggressors. This is a photographer for K. D. K. in Pittsburgh. He says he was attacked by protesters downtown on Saturday quote they stomped and kicked me. He said in a tweet from the back of the ambulance I'm bruised and bloodied but alive. My camera was destroyed. Another group of protestors pulled me out and saved my life. Thank you. This is what's happening. Members of the media in cities across the country this weekend. It feels like targeting. It feels like an escalation. It is deeply disturbing. And, we're waiting for statements about it from the president and from other national leaders when about a dozen reporters were arrested in Ferguson in two thousand fourteen. President Obama spoke about that defended the rights of the press. We will see who defends the rights of the press this weekend and in the days to come. Let's talk to the reporters, so we're in the middle of this. I just showed you. One of them molly. Hennessy Fisk reporter for the Los Angeles Times, who's got some wounds on her leg. We'll talk to her in a moment and Omar Jimenez here from CNN of course, famously iconic arrested live on CNN on Friday morning I. Don't think we're ever GonNa forget that image Omar of you being taken into custody your hands behind your back There's been a lot of news sense. Then tell me about last night and what it was like when. The police officers were were moving toward your crew and you had to seek shelter on Saturday night. Well. I think Brian we expect some of that. When you come out to a protest like this, because part of trying to cover the clashes between law enforcement, and those that are coming out, is you you expect in some ways for for things to escalate just based on how previous stories like these have gone so our team actually had a plan to sort of watch. How this law enforcement team is advancing. Go back to our first safe spot. Then continue to retreat to our next safe spot, but that didn't stop. That stop us even though our camera was rolling from getting shot at Berlitz wise, my producer got hit in the back with Some rubber bullets. My talk got hitting his leg with bullets. Actually he says that he had a cellphone in his in his pocket there and he didn't get any bruising on his leg, and when he realized, or he realized the reason was because he put out his phone, he was completely shattered, and he still has that piece of that rubber. Bullet is well so so in some ways. It was the normal aspect of covering protests, but in many ways. This one felt just a little bit different. Sort of looks different same question to you, Molly. What happened to you last night? Is it right that your colleague? Photographer had to go to the hospital. That's that's correct. My colleague Caroline coal photographer. We were both standing right
"huffpost" Discussed on Daily Detroit
"Stranger things about this diseases that patients could go from being relatively okay to on a ventilator in a matter of hours that's Jonathan Cohn senior national correspondent and Huffpost. And he's our guest talking about what they're reporting has learned from a package of stories on the corona virus crisis even better. It was written by a number of great local journalists Patricia. An Stack Anna Clark. Tom Perkins in cone with the support of Type. Investigations has been telling the stories of what's been happening here in Detroit. An epicenter of the pandemic that suffered nearly eight thousand cases and more than seven thousand deaths as of this recording after all crises. Like this expose the often ignored. But very real gaps. In our national fabric whether it's healthcare income inequality or a ton of other issues then on your daily for Tuesday April Twenty first twenty twenty. I'll share a few things. You should know around Southeast Michigan. I'm jair stays and let's jump into that conversation with Jonathan Cohn along with Sven Gusts right now. Joining US via skype is Jonathan Cohn. He's the senior national correspondent for Huffington. Post his byline appears among others on a recent story. Headlined DETROIT'S HEALTHCARE WORKERS ASK. How many lives can we save Jonathan? Welcome to daily Detroit. Thanks for having me on your show. Yeah absolutely you've done a lot of work on the Cova. Nineteen outbreak as a lot of us are pretty well consumed with this nowadays. Can you talk a little bit about why you wanted to focus in on Detroit and kind of you mentioned? You're one of four reporters on this particular story which will link to in our show notes. You know how how the kind of project came together like pretty much. I think every news organization you know some time a few weeks ago. I think it hit all of us at this was going to be the story of the year. Maybe beyond a year and something that we were going to be covering for a while and as you said I do. I do national coverage so you know I had been writing already going back to late February about some of the issues that were coming up at cover healthcare policy normally as might beat. So you know I was writing a lot about what's going happen the hospitals and do they have enough ventilators and if they don't where do you get the ventilators but we were very interested in capturing obviously more human side of this and you know? I'm a national right. If I happen to live here in southeastern Michigan on the Arbor and One of my editors can't tune said. Hey you know. We're hearing a lot and I've been talking about this a lot about how Detroit is really looking like they could get hit really hard by this and maybe this is a place to tell a story of what is like on the ground but in a really comprehensive way and you know my first thought was. I live here in southeastern Michigan but I don't actually cover local news that much and there's a lot to cover. Were probably better off. An at. You Know Discusses Thought you know we should get a team of reporters and get some people who really have really strong local ties. So people like Pat Answer debt who you know longtime residents who read the Detroit. Free press will recognize her. You know. She's like the dean of medical reporters down here. Anna Clark who wrote a fantastic book on the flint water crisis and lives in Detroit and so her and Tom Perkins. Who's based in Detroit in the four of us? Basically we sort of became a reporting team and the band was go out and report on. What's going on in Detroit and start writing stories? And at some point we're going to put together one big long piece on what this means and maybe we can be there right when this surges hitting not just to you know tell people what this is about and get their attention but we were very conscious of the fact that this is a wave going to kind of crust across the country. Maybe there will be lessons here that the people on the front lines will learn. That will help people in other communities either. Avoid this sort of surge or if it comes you figure out how to deal with it. Yeah WanNa come back to that lessons for other communities across the country but I wanted to read this. You know maybe this is sort of like your your nut. Graph to use a wonky insider term. But you're right this enduring city just five years out from the largest municipal bankruptcy in. Us history is framed as a comeback town ready for revival but in a cruel twist. The Corona virus turned the city's greatest strengths. It's connectedness and its network of mutual aid into a deadly threat. Can you elaborate a little bit on that? How those things sort of turned into a threat? Yeah one thing. We thought a lot about as we were sitting down and thinking about how to tell the story we thought a lot about. How did this begin right? How did Kovic Nineteen Start in Detroit? And we don't really know for sure Audino. Maybe someday they'll figure out how it got here but we do know one way in the very beginning that it spread very quickly was there is a A community meeting police in pancakes meeting in Was the ninth precinct. I want to say I'm doing that from memory. Mom where there was community. Get together with police officers in neighborhood residents in community activists you know and I think partly to improve police citizen relations in you know in you know which are which are obviously up down and so on one hand you had this this example of this community coming together people getting together you know Detroit pulling itself together and it turns out that somehow cove it was there and it spread. We're fairly certain you know several people. Got It at that Meeting at that event. And then of course spread it from there. And you know to me I think you know that sort of an example of what was the city coming together. What HAS GIVEN DETROIT? It's resolve its ability to climb out of the basement and now being turned against it in effect by this virus which exploits that fact to spread. And you know and particularly to first responders to community leaders and it's one of the tragedies of this pandemic are you know the lives that it is taking the lives that it is affecting our in many respects. You know the people who rely upon to rescue us to help us to lead us and that was an example of it so one of the things interest me as you say that you're you know have background doing health policy. How has this exposed some of the problems that have been going on for a long time in Detroit because at least it seems to me on the ground that yes? There are new problems being created by the corona virus but really exposes a lot of cracks and giant gaps in the system. I'm thinking specifically of places like DMC Sinai and I live in the city and I see like the health disparities. And what have you seen compared to the national? And what is it kind of exposed for you the pandemic? It's really been able to find all of the vulnerabilities in our society and we have a lot of those vulnerabilities here in Detroit. So when we think about why is Detroit particularly vulnerable to this? Well you know you start with the high. You know high number of people who don't have good access to healthcare right because either. Maybe they don't have health insurance or maybe they have health insurance but they they don't have easy access to a doctor or a clinic because there aren't as many in the city of Detroit because private providers have mostly left for the suburbs. Because it's hard to harder you know they don't make as much money here on Weei. In addition to that we know that when we have large numbers of people in poverty when we have racial disparities like we do in Detroit. We're going to see a higher incidence of hypertension high blood pressure of diabetes of us for Asthma Run DOWN The list of diseases that we know conditions that we know are very disproportionately present here in Detroit and then you kind of match that up with the list of what are called. Co Morbidity is no conditions that make you more susceptible to the really severe complications. Kogo the ones that are likely to land you in the hospital may be on a ventilator and ultimately less likely to survive and they match up almost perfectly You know and and so I think that's one reason you see that here in Detroit. It's like a wildfire because it's just there's tinder everywhere so it's really exposed those underlying problems and then you get to the sort of side of healthcare delivery as you said you know you look at a place like DMC which has had a lot of controversy around right. There's been a lot of questions about is owned by Tenet which is a for profit company based in Texas and a lot of people say look at the not invested enough that the hospital is not living up to its historic commitment to be the number one safety net hospital of Detroit and I will certainly say that in our reporting in looking at the different hospitals around Detroit you know we heard a lot of stories from EMC from people working at DMC who were really struggling and they really seem to be having a hard time. That's not to say you didn't see them at other hospitals and you know who knows. Maybe there's just a function of who we spoke to but certainly nothing. We heard a give us any reason to sort of question the narrative that's out there about DNC. Yeah and talking about the the healthcare workers in these hospitals to their facing real shortages of equipment that they need especially personal protective equipment. What sort of things did you find that? They're doing into sorta cope with these shortages. Yeah and this is one where it was really interesting to follow the story over the course of a couple of weeks because the story changed as time moves forward. So originally you know. P. p. e. was just nobody had enough of you know especially The all important n ninety five masks which we've all heard about these are these special masks that are more protective and ninety five because they blocked ninety five percent of them terio coming in. Nobody had enough and you had people who were on effectively. What we would consider the frontlines of this you know dealing with Kovic positive patients in very close interactions not having these masks and potentially getting exposed and of course as we've already heard there are a lot of healthcare workers who've gotten sick and you have to presume some of them in some cases that was because there was not enough. Pcp E as that reality set in everyone went on a mad scramble to do two things number one to find more right than that was something that involved not just the hospitals but also involved the hassles ation involved the state government working with the national government. We talked about it in the second. If you want but In addition than you know why improvising. So you know. You had hospitals experimenting. We find ways to sterilize. These masks we ration the mask and we say all right well normally you know under normal procedure you use a mass for patient encounter and you describe it. Well now you're going to keep it for the day all the now you're gonNA keep it for the week and you know things like that and and and none of these were ideal solutions. But when you're facing shortages have to make the best of what you can one of the things that has gained steam in Michigan among some. Is this idea that this is like the flu or this. Isn't that big of a deal? Even in our twitter mentions or listener feedback. People go well. This hasn't hit me yet. You know and so they don't have a personal attachment to this story. One of the things I enjoy or I think is valuable about your series. Is Those personal stories to you and also with your background with having a longer health health care perspective. What is so insidious about this and why it's different than other things we faced. I will say I remember when this first popped up on the radar screen back in January and February and I remember hearing it was like who I think. I said it was like the flu like a lot of people. I did not take it that seriously. This is more semi so as a medical matter is more dangerous than the flu. I mean in the numbers bear that it is threatening people who normally would be fine with the flu. I mean they're you know it tends to be most serious for the elderly. It tends to be most serious for people with underlying medical conditions. But you can talk any healthcare worker. Here they will tell you they are. Seeing young people come in they are seeing seemingly healthy people. Come in and the you know. There's a lot of things in cities but I think one of the hardest. I know this is something we we saw in our reporting in heard about..
The Narcissist In Your Life: Recognizing the Patterns and Learning to Break Free with Julie Hall
"Welcome to the addicted. Mind podcast my guest today is Chewy Hall and she is going to talk about narcissism and her book the narcissist in Your Life. Giuliani introduce yourself. Hi doing thanks so much for having me. Yeah Julie L. Hall. I always throw that L. in there. 'cause I'm a little generic name but it's Yeah Julia Hall. My Book is the narcissist in your life recognizing the patterns and learning to break free from Books just came out in December. I have a blog. A popular blog called the narcissist family files and You can find my articles on psychology today writing regular articles there lately. I also have stuff it had posted in various other places around the Internet will great. Thanks for coming on to the podcast to talk about this topic. Thanks so much for having me. I'm happy to be here. So let's just jump right in. This is an exciting topic for me. I don't know if exciting is the right word but I like this topic. It shows up a lot in my practice and what I do. I see it a lot in addiction as well so let's jump in and talk about narcissism and what it is. Everyone's favorite topic today lose days. Yeah think so so tell me a little bit about what motivated you to write this book so I am a writer by trade and an educational writer journalist poet and I also come from a narcissistic family. So I'm a survivor. And I was actually working on a memoir and I came to the realization. That wow one of the major themes of my memoir narcissism and. I ended up shifting gears a little bit and writing directly about narcissism writing articles. A Lotta my early stuff was on huffpost. And I launched my blog at the same time and wrote a lot for awhile. Interviewed a lot of experts and lots of others survivors and so it became a professional journey. Sort of figuring out aspects of Li- work ray hitting four but then it took a life of its own and I came to realize it was part of my own crosses You know healing and my own processing in my recovery. I think that sounds like a lot of people do that. You know they start to write and they especially when they survive narcissism in a family structure that they are looking for answers right and you know pre Internet. There were very few books. Nervous is very few information available. It's hard to imagine now because there's so much there's really almost too much. It's everyone's favorite topic these days. And there's still a lot of misconceptions about it but yeah I in a very real sense. I wrote the book I needed to read as a younger person and many of us as writers. We tend to do that. We often do that. I think that's so common. I think that's communists therapist to we go to look for the answers for ourselves in doing that for others. Right and an early books. That was important for me was the narcissistic family by so Stephanie. Donaldson pressman and Robert Preston. And they were the ones who coined the term narcissistic family and that was a profound discovery for me as a younger person and that sort of laid the groundwork for a lot of other people to forward with treating it therapeutically in writing about it a family in which one or both parents are narcissistic and the family is structured in such a way that the needs of the children are secondary to the needs of the parents and a lot of dysfunctional. Families are set up that way. That's kind of sort of definition of a dysfunctional family but in the narcissistic family. It's their unique way their differences that are unique to the narcissistic family as opposed to the alcoholic. Family or other addicted families are religious extremism or other mental health issues. Okay well let's because we this word. Narcissism is thrown around a lot like you said and can we talk a little bit? Just what does that mean and when we say narcissistic and what does that mean. Yeah so narcissistic. You know it's often misunderstood as you know egocentric EGOMANIAC. Somebody who's extremely self-focused arrogant superior and those are behaviors of the narcissists but the underlying issues. Which are you know? There's an underlying sense of profound vulnerability. Shame in a sense of inferiority than worthlessness. That's the underpinning of the disorder. What happens with a young person developing narcissistic defense mechanisms? So it's really a defensive coping structure and a child who begins to develop those that coping style they develop at exterior kind of persona personality and the shame and the negative emotions that are really overwhelming for a young person. A young child become they repressed those negative feelings those feelings of honor ability in shame and adopt this grandiose persona superior often a bully they become John nearing often. The narcissistic personality is very domineering and competitive. It's external you know. They miss out on. They don't develop a stable self esteem. They don't develop a sense of connectedness and the empathy. They don't experience consistent empathy themselves for whatever reason because of conditional often conditional caregiving and so they although they're capable of empathy cognitively they can recognize what other people are feeling they don't engage emotionally so they're not actively empathizing on an emotional level with other people in what other people are feeling so they create a false self to survive this intense feelings of shame and low self worth and self compassion they create. Its false self that they project to the world and I guess they lose touch with themselves they dare. They were oppressed the shame. And they really lose touch with that painful piece of themselves and that externalised persona is. That's what you see. And that's what they continually try to keep in place so but it's unstable and it's something they're constantly having to prop up and so. That's where the domineering behavior comes in the competitive one upmanship. The arrogance the need to constantly compete with others. Feel better than more entitled that So. They're afraid that if they don't do that they're going to have to. Experience their lack of self worth or their shame that is in there. I guess. Could you say it like their true? Self Yeah you know. It's complicated and hard to understand where those of us who don't struggle with this in even the narcissist because that so much of what they're actually carrying around emotionally repressed so they're very out of touch with their interior emotional world and they want to keep it that way and that's why the narcissistic personality avoid self reflection at all costs. That's the behavior that those of us with healthy self esteem We practice self awareness. We reflect on her behavior. We reflect on things. We've said we try. You know we check in with ourselves and the narcissistic personality. Lloyd's that and along with that any kind of sense of responsibility for their behaviors. Well and then I would imagine that leads to that inability to those empathetic feelings because empathy is a feeling state. You know mirroring feeling state that if they can't be conscious of themselves are experienced themselves and you can't really be pathetic exactly and you can't also be intimate if you're not in touch with your own donor ability in your feelings and consistently engaging in self reflection having that self awareness you're not feeling safe and you're not in touch with yourself not to be in touch with others so that intimacy is really not there and often. The narcissistic personality can become quite good often. Very skillful at mimicking certain behaviors. That may be seem like intimacy or interest in others especially when their first in new relationship or trying to win over a prospective partner you know they often engage in mirroring other people instead of actually intimate and the mirroring can feel like someone else that I can really feel powerful like. Wow I've really met someone. I have so much in common with and had this amazing report with but then when it gets to a deeper level or really where you have deep connection that starts to break down. I guess it does an another head of underlying feature the narcissistic personality. Is this all or nothing? Mentality of everything is either good or bad. You know right or wrong. There's no gray area. There's not emotional nuance. So the narcissist tends to see him or herself as either worthless or wonderful and others as well so narcissists idealized other people that they're drawn to they initially idealize people and they do that in their romantic. It's not necessarily that. They're trying to con. You really are idealising you at first. They're certainly manipulation. But often it's this. They're caught up in this idealization of the love. Object and then eventually gives way to solution -ment disappointment when we reveal ourselves to be imperfect which we all are accepting the narcissist mindset. They are perfect and someone has to be perfect in order to not be worthless. So it's this terrible dichotomy that is impossibility for any of us to live up
Has Life Knocked You Out?
"So here's what we're going to talk about today. Has Life knocked you out? This was interesting. I was just doing some reading. I was online just looking at some different stuff in reading. Different things you guys know. I'm I'm super nerd. And I love to read 'em research and that's how I get a lot of topic ideas for you guys to like. You guys will make comments in the facebook group or something or your message me and ask me some questions or people that hire me as their coach will have conversation about certain things and it will just kind of piqued my interest in all jump online and start digging a little deeper into those topics. And that's how I I decide what topics to do on the show. So we've been talking a lot recently about just happiness in general and actually have a client who airs twentysomethings a young guy. Good Looking Kid. Good job goes to the gym. And he's really struggling kind of with happiness in general and he asked me like he said to me Angela. Where are all these people that I see in the world like are all these people really thriving or do they just look like they're thriving and they're really just surviving and I thought it was such a fascinating question because I think you know we talk about this a lot on this show where I think people we do have a tendency to Kinda shore best moments right with social media? Everybody is so much more out there than we used to be for sure. And it's too easy to kind of highlight all of our best moments and not show the lower moments in the struggles. You know we don't tend to talk about those things as much so I started digging around and one of the first things I came across was an article about the twenty nineteen world happiness report and it said negative feelings are rising around the world and the United States is particularly hard hit with an epidemic of addictions and man what a fascinating statement right epidemic of addictions had think. A lot of that too is there are a lot of different addictions that we don't even talk about that much right. There's this whole tech addiction. That's happening right now. Everybody is addicted to their phones and computers and Social Media and porn and sex addiction which also ties into tech because now everybody can have pornography right in their hand everywhere they go all day long and of course. Food addiction is huge. And I think we've always known that. In for many years we've talked about obesity and heart disease and diabetes and some of those issues that go with poor eating habits. But we don't necessarily talk about it a lot in the sense that it's a food addiction right disordered eating in those kinds of things so an epidemic of addictions in the United States. And I think that's really accurate. It's kind of sad but it is really accurate. So here's the question about. Are we actually thriving or just surviving? I think we have this tendency to look at other people and think that they're always doing better than we are. You know we look at other people and think they've got it figured out better than we do but do they really are they actually just surviving and on the inside their feeling equally as overwhelmed and as exhausted as you are in the other article. I found was on huff post and this is really going to be the crux of our episode today and this was written by Cathy. Capri no on Huffpost DOT COM. And she pulled her audience. Okay and she did. Let me see what it says. Here she put up the survey to her community and seven hundred. People had responded at the time that she wrote this. This was a couple years ago. Seven hundred people had responded so far. The key question was if you could say in one word what you want more of in life. What would that be? Sounds simple right of all? The things people responded. She took the ten most frequently mentioned things. And she wrote this article. And of course I will link to the full article This is just my take on certain ones that I think. Go Hand in hand with what we talk about on this podcast all the time and making changes in our lives and trying to live better lives in really trying to feel better because for us in this context of sobriety and recovery. I have to do a lot of work in these other areas and I have to feel good in these other areas. Because that's what will allow me to remain sober comfortably. I willing to the full article if you WanNa read the whole thing. It's really really good. It's not super long so of course I'll put that link in it's it's a great article but this piqued my interest. Because when I read it I think as addicted people you like to think that you are more broken than everyone else or you think. You're weak because you have addiction and what I really want you to see what this article is. Everyone addiction or not struggles with the same issues. The majority of people as human beings we want the same things and as a society we are desperately lacking lives that are happy and fulfilling whether we have addiction or not and I want you to really hear that. Everyone is struggling to be happy and feel happy. Everyone is questioning themselves in feeling like they don't have enough time and feeling guilty because they aren't being a good parent or they aren't being a partner to their partner. There are a ton of people who aren't doing jobs they love who WanNa make more money and a ton of people who have taken a beating by life and have super low self esteem. You don't have these struggles because you are an alcoholic and F. up beyond repair and I know that's what you think so. Stop It stop. You are human. You are not week. Life is hard so I picked a handful of the responses to this survey. We're GONNA talk about how we're missing the mark. How To better understand it and what to do to feel better in. Get closer to that life that you want and deserve. Let me read the intro again. Just to refresh you. Huffpost DOT COM by Kathy Capri. No if you could say in one word what you would want more of in life. What would that be? She goes on to say of all the things people indicated. They wanted more of following. Were the ten most frequently mentioned. Here's my take on what's missing in life and work today in why we can't get enough of these precious ingredients and then she includes a quote in each one that I will read as well and again I will link to the I willing to that full article So you can get there and read that also so the number one thing that people said they were missing the one thing number one response was happiness and the biggest challenge took a quote in all these quotes from actual respondents right. These are real. People quotes biggest challenge. Not Knowing what I want to do and she writes the number. One mentioned missing element was happiness. It has become so hard to achieve an even harder to maintain in my work with professional women. I've seen that happiness continually escapes them. Because I they don't really understand exactly what will make them happy. They just don't know themselves well at all secondly they search outside themselves for happiness in a job husband a family a title a paycheck a Fancy House as a result happiness is constantly out of their control and a perpetual moving target. That never stands still long enough for them to grasp. I'm not saying that these things don't bring happiness. Of course they can the key point. Is that if everything you are searching for remains outside of you you'll always be scrambling and chasing. I don't know about you but I to remember a lot of this same conversation in a lot of these podcast episodes like this is the stuff we talk about you guys in and remember. She's not talking to people with addiction. This is her community obviously. It sounds like she works with professional women. I don't know exactly what her community is I just found the article like I said on Huff Post but these are not people with addiction. But what she described is exactly what we do. As addicted people right. We look for things outside of ourselves to change how we feel on the
Inside the Huff Post Splash Flash Briefing with Amanda de Souza
"So a bit about me. I am a senior producer at have post Canada. I also work under the Resin Media Studios Group because Huffpost is owned by Verizon media so I- produce Video and audio for brands like Huffpost as well as a brands under the Yahoo Banner honor and brands under the riot. Banner which does a lot of branded content and stuff like that great and so how long have you been in this in your dream job and in the space he's been with huffpost which is now rising meter for about four years but I've been doing video and audio for. Oh my gosh maybe almost a decade like I just love video and audio story storytelling and when the opportunity came up to host the flash briefing for Huffpost Post. I just thought it was such an exciting opportunity. It's a new and innovative space and I think a space that really news should be looking at the formats in which people are getting their news or always always changing. We know it's becoming More convenient to get your news from your phone and now it's going to be even more convenient to get it. I think from Smart Speaker devices so I was really excited to jump it hosting this absolutely so I'm curious about sort of the beginning of this. You said you had the opportunity to get involved with flash briefing. How did that come? Whose idea was it to first of all create a flash briefing for for huffpost? Yes so I wasn't the original host another colleague of mine and Jumped into this but it started about a year and a half ago. You know I think everyone here saw like just as you did that. These smart speaker devices were starting to go mainstream. They were getting more affordable and just everybody was gonNA use them. They weren't exclusive tech anymore. So have post that. Hey It'd be a great idea to develop a flash briefing there are other Competitors in the space already and we thought of we're not there we're not at the table and we're not getting in people's ear so We already had success. PODCASTS in the audio space we have a great podcast called born and raised About the story of Second Generation Canadians we have a great political podcast hosted hosted by Ottawa. Bureau chief out the Iraj Called follow up so this was already a space that we were in and we thought this was kind of another way to show innovation innovation But also kind of build out what news could look like for Huffpost on this emerging platform. So the idea. The splash came up. And I think it's great because it's in our kind of huffpost tone voice. It's not what you'll hear on the other news podcasts. A breaking news flash briefing. That's GonNa it'd be updated hourly or be bringing you the news as it happens. We're going to bring you a differentiated. Tony you're going to hear on our briefing news and lifestyle lifestyle stories and feature stories that you wouldn't hear on any other briefings specially from

"huffpost" Discussed on Recode Decode
"A lot of details of stuff that we have all been covering, but it doesn't tell you something fundamentally new about this White House, right? What we've known what is there is what we've known. So I'm trying to basically look for something that can. L. people about a different aspect of it, and I'm also trying to do more about policy because there's as we are all chasing the shiny objects. There's a lot going on that is going to impact the country for a long time, but really lady. 'cause when we talked, we talked, you wanted to reach a different kind of reader at the Huffington Post. You had just taken the job and obviously politics is big at that you cover and you have a big bureau there. How is that change? Does you thought that you really wanted to really reach out to a different reader than the Costa lead, I think, or house? How are you thinking about it? Yeah. I mean, I think I think it's interesting because the times is an institution because it's so big. I mean, there are fifteen hundred journalists so they can have people who are hyper specialized like Maggie who are breaking stories all the time on the Russia investigation the Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort and then also be out there covering have other people out there covering all kinds of of news all around the world. And I think for a smaller news organization. You know, you have to make choices and trade offs. So one of the one of the big choices that I made in this impart informed by a trip that we did across the country did a bus tour visited twenty-six cities and talk to seventeen hundred people over the course of this. And what was remarkable things about this tour was you could count on both of your hands in seventeen hundred interviews. How many people brought up Trump it just, you know, people could be that they were sick of it, or it could be that it's like voldemort the, you know, the the name, you dare not utter, but I think that you know what I took away from that is that you know there is a hunger for journalism on lots of different topics, and there are things that are absolutely affected in an influenced by the administration. We have always had a strong emphasis on healthcare for example. But we've also recently picked up a tremendous interest in affordable housing based on some of the things that we learned on the tour. We've always had a strong. Focus on LGBTQ issues. We've had women and people of color. So I think for us, it's not so much saying we're not gonna cover Trump because obviously we do. We have great Washington bureau that breaks stories and does a lot of great coverage. But that on particular stories like say, you know, the multiple investigations and the Trump administration. I think that there are a bunch of news organizations that are doing fantastic work on that, and I don't think we need to play the us to game where we're, we're chasing after the same scoops that they're get.

"This was a quote from Quin from stars pet stores are infected with this Tyrian. But make no mistake. This is not her quotes. Visit has me speaking make no mistake, you're more than likely not getting a healthy puppy in the first place. Really? I'm not going to be getting the best of the best. But she says the dogs expressed that dogs house together in cages where the also poop maybe more prone to contracting and spreading these infections. And this is nothing puppy mills. Then not let down to play the stacked in metal crates on on the on mesh mash, what's the word grit? No, great type would just not even not flat surface or anything which is dreadful for that feet. But the reason they do that he says they poop and actually falls through the crate through the cage, and sometimes they stack them seven and eight. Hi, it's horrific. So you can imagine that's going to be very easy for any kind of disease to spread very very easy. So the area can easily be picked up during play with the puppies or from the environment and then ingested during grooming. Yeah. I don't mean grooming in going to the groom is in grooming themselves, and the spokesman that CDC told Washington Post that public health officials aren't sure how common this area is in animals in an E mail statements. Huffpost Pentland said he is cooperating with the CDC investigation pet Lundy immediately provided the CDC with complete access to the stores are staff veterinarians and the operating procedures and pats the CDC has not been tried any failures in lines operating system that would lead to any by this this bacteria infection. Here's the thing. You've gotta rewind a little bit. But where these animals coming from eight may maybe everything's followed privately within the store. But let's find out how enough could it possibly end up here. Oh, we got animals coming from these puppymills all what they call reputable breeders. But as a reputable breeders don't put their pets in pet stores. Oh, those buzzwords all those buzzwords the actually four people. I don't like it. I find it to be very very dishonest very dishonest advertising, and it really just prey on people. It's it's just not right. So in order to prevent coming into contact with this bacteria. They advised that potential pet owners to look for bright alert playful dogs free of feces and schedule a visit with a veterinarian shield after purchasing the dumb, people should not let that dogs kiss faces and should wash their hands. Every time the Coens concert with dogs taking special care would huddling dog poop. They're not kissing thing. For me. Doc sell time all day all the time. And I find it quite interesting the special Kevin huddling dope. Oop. I don't know. Anybody that picks? Doug with? I don't know any of that. They said they advise you to use disposable gloves when picking up by feces and disinfecting the area. Yeah. No. I most people I think, you know, if they'd got a dog that's got this this bacteria or just in general, they usually wear gloves or by is the glove. Comey magin imagine people don't protect their hands. So there you go. So that's the update who knows how many more people have been infected by this dreadful. I think he could be the silver lining. We never hear anything about mills and dogs ended up in these stores, and we could be the silver lining. All of a sudden we're concerned now because humans got sick. But I think it'll be a silver lining. What people will say well how and how would the dog's sick that how did that happen? And that's good. That's really a good thing when you can always see a silver lining. Well, I kind of kind of finished silver lining note that we're going to take a break. And when we come back.

It’s Time to Talk About the Opioid Crisis as a Women’s Health Issue
"United States battle with the opioid crisis continues more than one, hundred people still die of an opioid. Overdose every day in this country but new research, and reporting says, there's an important piece of the puzzle that addiction experts and policymakers. Have overlooked gender differences in opioid use, and addiction Aaron shoemaker is a senior enterprise reporter at huffpost. Covering the opioid crisis so more women are being prescribed opioids in a medical setting and that's a little, different than men men are also prescribed opioids in a medical setting but for women it's? Very common for that to be the entry point for addiction and then once they have opioid addiction we don't have very. Good women's specific mechanisms for treating them a lot of our treatment mechanisms have. Been designed for men and men's needs it just out of curiosity was there any demographic breakdown of the types of women that were studied for this report so this was more of. A summation of different pieces, of literature that these To yell researchers had gone through and they. Are both part of a center at Yale that, specifically, looks at disparities and women's health so they. Have over sort of all sorts of different avenues of medicine looked at ways in which women are overlooked but no it wasn't specifically broken. Out by age or race or, different demographics like that so let's talk about how different genders react to pain, and to opioids are there differences in. Our biological makeup in terms of how we men and women react to. This drug so there's some evidence that women are more susceptible, to pain stimuli to begin with but. They're also more likely to have touch points with, the medical system, so because women are involved a lot of times with child care. And child rearing like that's a situation, in which you're having touch points with the medical community and. Every time you have a touch point you're more likely to have medical interventions which can be a good, thing but also means that you are more likely to get prescriptions and in this case? That could be in prescription opioids women are also more likely to be chronic Pain patients than men are so you know. Headaches backaches, things like that which are also conditions that opioids are not particularly effective for. Despite that there's this sort of secondary problem which is that a lot. Of women feel that their pain is not being addressed so not only are we over prescribing women opioids? For conditions that opioids are not really an effective treatment for but on the flip, side that pain is still there these women are not even getting sufficient. They feel medical attention paid to the conditions that they have now what happens to women who are trying to fight an addiction are they treated the same as. Men who were fighting opioid addiction historically the, treatments that we have for addiction have, been more setup for men's needs, women traditionally tend to be at least culturally speaking caregivers in. Our society and so for women childcare is a, huge, huge piece of the puzzle if you have A woman who's trying to seek consistent addiction treatment and maybe that for her means going daily to methadone clinic if. There's not some, sort, of, avenue and support, for her to get care for her kids while she goes every single, day to get that treatment it's, going to be impossible for her to adhere to it what's the impact or what. Could the long term impact be if this, isn't addressed accurately dangerous insufficient treatment of of women when it comes. To opioid addiction I think, insufficient recognition of places in. Which we could stop women from becoming. Addicted in the first place and given that women are fifty. Percent, of the population and that's a large cohort of people that, we are sort of ignoring and under treating areas shoemaker is senior? Enterprise, reporter at huffpost covering the opioid crisis Aaron thank you thank you so much. For having me and check out our series on women's health from earlier..
