"Week thirty six fifty the hustler. The bonus session. It's nine twenty four. pm on sunday. september fifth. i'm at the hustler casino in los angeles california after a long in busy day like all of them have been pretty much for about four years. Now i'm with patrolmen's be funk in moose and if you don't know what a patrol is it someone who signs up to support my content on patriot on dot com slash. Dj of poker player. I called them. Patrolling since the beginning like bosses even though they're not my bosses but they are paying my salary. You get it in anyways. I mentioned this in the last drop and in many drops one thing i wanted to do for people who are supporting my content was give back to them right. They're giving back to me. I want to get back to them. On a re re give and so i created a community for them and It's just turned into something. I couldn't even have imagined i thought i'd just be an online community. Thought it'd be pretty cool. And it became an online community. That was way cool. And now as you can tell it's spilling over into real life. I spent all my time with people that i've met through content in you know the community in the whole thing. Everyone in it is communal. That's just the only rule you can't be a it you cannot be about yourself only rule you can't infringe anyone right. So that's what needs do. They're just selfish the infringe fuck them. That's oil you doesn't nothing else matters right. You should be about the group so that's the culture that's been established in We work hard to protect is no. It's not a colt of any sort as just people who don't like knits and don't wanna deal with them and it's so nice to be around people cut from the same cloth who care about the group and anyways when anything ever pops up someone needs help in the community. Someone's always there to help them or people band together and help in bigger situations and this is this is an instance of it. Right here i want to. I want to do good for the hustler. They're sponsoring this podcast. Now and ryan has been very cool giving me a shot hustle. Seen a live commentating. I wanna crush on across the commentating. And i wanna give the hustler.

So for those like two years like two thousand sixteen twenty eighteen. Not only did. I live in a tiny apartment with my cat. I was also the girl just conned the moment when they pulled up next to the cop and it's like everybody think cool everybody woman they finally pull away and just bar and i've done that was puking. This movie season was big. Pook girls because it was like lily reinhard in this movie on it and knives out it was like girl city that that christmas season representation matters girl live alone with their cats and puke for no reason. There was a small moment that i felt very seen by where destiny is describing this recurring dream. She's where she's in the backseat of a moving car. There's no in driving. She has to scramble to get to the front seat to try to gain control the vehicle. She can never do it. I've had that dream probably fifty or more times in my life. It is like one of my recurring nightmares. Yes and i'm like to see that described and then like play out on screen. I was like. I feel that sequence was so good i love dream sequences that are successfully pulled off. Your the thing is happening and you don't know that it's a dream until like right before you. It's good yeah. I'm so sorry you have that dream though. That sounds so stressful. Oh it's okay i Clearly need to work on managing my anxiety. I heard of that dream but it was. I haven't had him since. I was a kid ex. Atlanta's like i was in a station wagon and it was rolling backwards. And i was like my grandma's gonna pull the emergency brake. Not oh no. No grandma grandma that might have been a princess. Diaries induced dream to be honest. Because okay i can. I ask some questions you got. Yeah lutely. I've talked like a fair amount about like my experience in strip club life. But i'm curious about how much time y'all's clubs what that's been like. What what what your point of rock because it was very striking to me. I didn't spend. I was never in two thousand seven strip clubs about like four show. I've seen that. When i was on tour in those big states that like walmart sized strip clubs but like a city strip club that popping. I never really quite seen before. And then shot the two thousand eight strip club. It like my bones. I was like oh this. Is the strip club hurt inside. I'm curious what if anything your references for for those faces i was in. I think i went to my first ever strip club in two thousand nine so not long after. Because i had moved to new york right around the time the economy tanked and was struggling to find a job and when i did finally find one. It was at a literary management company. Where one of the managers was like kind of doing that part time but her main job was that she was the general manager of and i forget which club it was but it was one of the more popular strip clubs in manhattan and so she would let my colleague and i at this literary management company. Come in for free. She would buy us. Drinks offered by us. Lap dances so we would go and just like have a ball. Was it a place with food. would you get to like get. I think it was just drinks So and then. I've been a few other strip clubs in albuquerque new mexico portland oregon los angeles. I was with you in portland. Yeah we went to one in portland together. A listener of the show and Working at this club invited us for to come in for breakfast. It was very delightful. We i'm about to go to portland. Which club surface. And what was a. We'll get you the name of the club. Oh we'll yeah we'll have to let me a couple of years ago but it was fabulous. It was incredible crumbs are special. Yes yeah i have. I have not spent a ton of time in strip clubs. But i think like once every two years my first time was when in massachusetts. It's it's like or i don't know how state to state this is. But i'm from massachusetts and went to college. There and i was so excited to move to boston. Because i wanted to go to a strip club so badly and i just i was especially as a teenager. I was so like fixated on strip personas. And i read a ton of blogs and i was just like i was so excited to go and then i got to boston. I was eighteen and they didn't let anyone in under twenty one so i ended up going. I ended up getting my dad to drive me to an eighteen plus night and i went to a strip club with my dad. And the bless your goddamn heart and we had amazing food and a great time but it was. My dad was way more uncomfortable than i was. I was like this is. This is incredible. This is the best and everyone everyone everyone who works there was so nice and then once they figured out what are dynamic was there were like okay and like don't but that that's my most memorable strip club experience. Amazing i i asked because a i always say that. I think it's really important. People.

"Home. Does anyone have anything else they want to discuss. I wanted to know that. I love love. Love cannot say how much i love that. We don't know anything basically or care about any of the boyfriends yup. When you said his name was johnny. I was like that i believe was his name but the fact that we barely you know is telling is johnny and name janis another name. Johnny's just like a young john. John's there's giannis and there's jonathan name of the guy from the room. You're just not johnny exactly. It's not a name johnny. Johnny is a shorthand for like random. Young man johnny here. No but i. I love that. Because i think so often when people talk about stories that humanize oechsler hers. They're like yeah. What's it like when she goes home to boyfriend cares you've adduced value. Just like all the other men in her life. Sorry my my boyfriend. The record is stuck. But i hate seeing that. It's such a boring. Like oh you the fact that destiny has a child and we see this moment that we just sort of like get sucked into like the two thousand eight crash happens. Destiny gets pregnant. suddenly there's this dude next to her. I was like oh god or we about to see this movie. I don't want but we weren't. Thank god we do. Not i think the only boyfriend of any who is like i mean i guess not extremely negatively relevant but that is one of kiki palmer's motivations. Is her boyfriend. Who is in jail. I don't know if they tell you what it's for But that. That's the only boyfriend that i think comes up multiple times. She's trying to get her boyfriend. Legal assistance right and does end the end. She successful right. But yeah that's treated as more just like that's not even a subplot that's just like a few here and there. Yeah yeah. Kiki wants a brain. She wants a heart. Yeah and i liked it. Everyone does even. Though it's like i mean for for kiki palmer character and oh my god lily reinhart's character definitely definitely who she has But they each have a scene that explains their why and that's all that's all comes from the source material as well really looks good so i liked that speaking of that. Villi reinhard character. On so from twenty. I moved to la antoni sixteen.

"Oh wow constance. Movies are full of this interaction But then she. She child deaths new challenges. Elizabeth little further says. Well what would you do for a thousand dollars because of course the answer is going to depend on what you already have and what you need because up until this point there's been this kind of like probably as objective as elizabeth can like make herself seem but she's still like passing judgment in terms of like you were drugging these people. And she's like. Why are you fixated on that. Yeah we were doing that but also these guys were mainline and coke every day on their way to work so like the but it just brings up this class. Conversation of a large part of destiny's motivation is that she wants to be completely independent. She doesn't have to rely on anyone else. Financially says this multiple times in the movie and for someone who grew up in what was clearly a pretty financially unstable situation. Her grandmother seems to be the sole provider for her. She was in debt. Her parents left her when she was young. Sh- she's coming from a low socio economic background and motivated by trying to get out of the cycle of poverty and wanting to be independent and yet goes back to that other quote from jacqueline about surviving under capitalism. In how like that's just inherently problematic in and it kind of like doubles as a commentary on how media is trained to view strippers and sex workers as well. Because of how it's like i mean and elizabeth kind of tries to do this again where i don't know i mean this is. This is just how. I interpreted her behavior in the scene but later on like i keep wanting to just call her julia stiles but julia stiles like leans and to destiny. And it's like well you know. I know i'm supposed to feel bad for the guys that this happened to. But i really don't and i kind of viewed that from a journalistic perspective. I was like. Oh she trying to kind of lead her to say something and you know i. Don't i mean i. I saw her apartment. I don't think she really felt that way. Whatever i don't know but all that to say then destiny doesn't take the bait and is like oh that's interesting because there were times where i felt not good about the situation at all and again. It's like this supposedly objective source making an assumption about how the person they're innov- interviewing would feel based on this preconceived notion they have and like. Yeah yeah those scenes are wild. I really appreciated the including that. The device just because i think it is a really important part of the coming of age sex worker story that we're sort of approaching in this in this movie. I'm like yes. You will meet a girl a girl who will like consume you and possibly destroy us. She may explicit you and let you turn her into the cops. You will never get her back and be careful when you talk to the media. Bibs they will make you know like they're not your friends. They're not trying to help you in any way they. They are part of that strip club you know. Are they doing the dance. 'cause they're definitely not throwing money Be mindful apart. Yeah should we talk a little bit about the production yes So we references a little earlier. And i know i mean there's a million quotes from the oral history that support this as well but i was I didn't know much about the production of this movie. Even though it seen it a couple of times and lorraine's ghaffari a prior to this movie. Was she directed stuff but she was. I think better known as a writer she had written this script and then the It's just it's so typical but it's like three years ago so it's double annoying. I was like oh great. This was happening in one. Eighteen amazing post times the the time that it was up anyways. So lorraine's ghaffari. I basically was really lobbying. Like i wanted direct this movie and i i believe like three or four big name. Male directors had to pass on making the movie before they would even consider her and on top of that. This movie was originally with like the anna. Purna production company which. They've made a bunch of famous movies. I can't think of any of them right now but there forever they exist. And oh this is a quote from elaine goldsmith. Thomas who's one of the producers and but she says of anna purna who eventually pulled out from this movie She says quote the male studio executives. Were a little uncomfortable. Everybody could see the commercial value of this movie but they were like. Can they just drug the bad guys. Can they just do that to people that deserve it. And so it just at almost every. That's like so happy that this movie does exist and was directed not only by a woman a woman who wanted to consult strippers and consult people. Who could make the story authentic in the way that it needed to be because it sounds like the production originally had no intention of doing that. They're like we're just going to let. Martin scorsese walk around and kind of just guess his way through this and it's like thank god that movie. He would've done what he did to margot robbie in wolf of wall street. So we've been thing to hold the scorsese cut. I have no desire to see things. But yeah jessica elbaum who is the founder of glorious interest productions who had originally bought the rights for like the article to make it into the film had been the one to like go out to marc sese and then adam mckay was another possible contender to be the director but then lorraine scarf. Reo was like no look. I can do this. I made this awesome sizzle. Reel and they're like. Oh wow this is a great real okay fine you can drag the movie which which is like so. I would be less annoyed by that if she were like an inexperienced director like us. Israel makes more sense when you're not already a well respected director. She shouldn't have had to do that to like roof. She could direct her own script. It stores like that made me so annoyed.

"Like you know. I'll talk to the press out. Do offensively but it was. i think. Twenty four twenty thirteen when my redbook dot com taken out by the fbi which is like a Advertising website that i actually used a stripper working filini because there was like an exotic dance section Might exchange information about eight at so again. I talked to the news in my little red blazer and pencil skirt little advocacy outfit on and i ended up meeting them in like a parking lot somewhere. Chat chevy's parking lot in oakland or something. And i gave the interview and my talking points to talk all about you. Know like the the risks to the industry and blah blah blah and rice saw the sequence. That came out that evening. The evening news the literally started at my high heels and pan spent used a whole shot of just my feet on the news and then like hand up my entire body as i was talking about the taking down a resource that helps keep sex workers alive on the fucking news. It's not just my way. Not just michael bay off the news. The news that take euless. It's ridiculous and i think that when i'm looking back on the movie hustler is like thinking about like objectification or like the you know these things we often critique in films made or the male gaze slash by and then something happens or at least happened to me when i started profiting off off the mail aids like using my body as a tool to survive under capitalism by exploiting the male gaze and also being gay and wanting to attract women who were also doing this day. Something happens to your aesthetic and like you can't senior right now but like i. I am a cartoon character. Through and through and i think that there is just a piece of alchemy. That happens when you are. You're getting dressed at the strip club to make money that night. You're also making sure that you look good to your peers and coworkers and navy that growing. You're going to get out with afterward you know. And if you've ever been in like fem lesbian circles or i'm stacy's the way that we dressed to attract each other like goes it goes into drag right. It goes beyond like the the the male gay male gaze left the long ago hunzas now with these like glitter eyelashes are four. And they're not for the man in the room okay and that's very much what this storm felt like for me just like yes. We're all. I'm here the strip club and am going to make money because this outfit is hot. But i'm with you and i'm wondering what year doing later phone kill. Cinematic likes yeah it it does feel. It's pretty. I'm like i don't understand cinematography like technically at all but i'm like they can pull it off it it it. It only makes you feel the story. Beats stronger my partner is a cinematographer sleep director of his harvey and like loves. I mean you can see. We've got like these weird little colored lights all over house. I strive started to understand it more. Not unlike the lighting in hustlers lots of pinks and purples divided is very hot. I wanted to share another quote from jacqueline francis. That's from the oral history of this movie. Who was talking about being in the strip club that they used as like the set of this movie. So being onset. Jacqueline says quote. I was like a utopian strip club from days gone by i felt so respected for my opinion and my expertise coming from my background. Where sex work is stigmatized and considered not real work and that we are disposable and that violence against us is acceptable. It's really important to have compassionate and authentic representations of sex workers in mainstream media and the only way that's going to be achieved is by hiring sex workers to play the parts and to consult on these films. People are constantly shitting on me all the time about strippers being done bitches. It's so toxic and its violent it results in literal violence against sex workers unquote. So that's just one of many things. I deeply appreciate about this movie. Which is that strippers were consulted and hade paid and just had voices in terms of how strippers were represented in the in the movie. And because yeah like she said how misses the thesis of our show how people are represented affects kind of public opinion in cultural perceptions of any particular group. So so why on earth would strippers not have a say. In how in shaping their own cultural persona right. It's so silly yeah. Jacklyn francis says quote like every single quote. I came across that she'd ever said it was a cheese genius. She's so great. Like just like the. I don't know anytime someone can like get a thought into two sentences like how did you do that. It takes us two hours to do that. Well she also does these cartoons and you've seen her like that's that's the have the little like words and the the truth paired with these like adorable little like cartoons watercolors remarkable. She's the readers. Our time and i really like i'm curious what everyone thinks of. How the Journalist is used to challenge assumptions made about strippers as well. Because i i feel like using that device. I mean not only is it reflective of the fact that it was you know a journalist from a somewhat privileged background who wrote this story for new york magazine originally but even on top of that. I really liked that exchange between destiny slash dorothy and elizabeth when elizabeth is doing the journalism thing where she's like well what about the crime and that's clearly what she has been sent to do and we. I mean you barely notice as an audience member because it's so awesome but like you've been focused on the relationship and the and the moment the cultural moments for most of the movie and she's like okay but what about crime and destiny pushes back on this right away and is like well. I don't want to be a part of some larger narrative that for like. I'm not quoting her exactly here. But i don't wanna be a part of some larger stigma enforcing narrative that frames strippers as criminals wholesale. So if that's what you're trying to do. I want no part in this. And even goes further to challenge elisabeth on what her background is and like. Can you really empathize with me with you. Know it's an. And i think does something really really smart that maybe a lesser journalist would have been scared and quit the story and she was just like you know. I'm not going to be a part of a toxic narrative that of course she would be well aware of and i feel like it's almost that was almost like a a clever writing way of talking to the audience to yeah. I just thought that that was like a a really cool moment. Yeah part of that is also. I don't know if it's that same scene or not. But she asks elizabeth. You know like yeah. Did you grow up with money. And she's like yeah. I'm we were comfortable. My dad likes exactly what rich people say people say comfortable. I'd like that shouldn't be allowed anymore. That's your way of downplaying. The fact that you grew up in an upper middle class or like upper class families..

"Like when you violate the terms about loving virus at each that like we have to have someone's back because like everybody out in the world wants to get including the cops including the manager for place you work including the is one of the only person that has your back with that other girl around and if you turn around and you explained her or you turn around and you ride on her to the cops and you betray her. Who never It's the most sacred thing that's beautiful. Is that song still available. Yeah check it out. I can send you the link. Yes the link. I would love to to share it with our listeners. That's obsolete oh my god so beautifully put thank you use verb alberton. You talk about it. I'm just so glad there's a movie about it like we needed this and like you've said this is so much of what this movie is about. This like female friendship and camaraderie. There's a line of voice over from destiny where she says like ramona wasn't looking for friends but it happened. Yeah this movie's that. I mean it's mostly about women looking out for each other helping each other. Ow lifting each other up knowing what circumstances they are in because she's also in the same boat kind of thing and just supporting each other and while there is conflict between the characters different points in the movie like they don't agree on everything. They take different approaches to things. Ramona has this tendency to kind of take in strays as As destiny puts it with like dawn and this woman cocoa cocoa the conflict that does exist between them from time to time. It always makes sense. There's the context for it. And it's just beautiful to watch that unfold. Especially because and i want to pull a quote from the article that this movie was based on which is entitled the hustlers at scores by jessica pressler Originally television twenty fifteen in the new yorker quote while evolutionary theory and the bachelor would suggest that a room full of women hoping to attract the attention of a few men would be cut throat competitive. It's actually better for strippers to work together. Because while most men might be able to keep their wits and their wallets around one scantily clad sweet-smelling self. They tend to lose their grip around three or four and quote. So i feel like this is actually something we talked about on the moulin rouge episode which was from like. Wow a millionaire but There's this really antagonistic relationship between sixteen and one of the other courtesans in that movie and how oftentimes relationships between sex workers are portrayed that way in movies where. There's the idea that they are competing for the tension of one man. So they have to be very cutthroat antagonistic toward each other. But how that is often not the case in real life among real sex workers. Yeah interested if you have any like additional insight about that susie. Absolutely i mean like i i mean i shot foreign on you know in college back in two thousand seven but i consider my first real job in the adult industry at the lusty which is where workers literally banded together to unionize fight for the rights. Yeah get represented by. Sei local seven ninety and eventually by the place. And if that isn't proof yeah incurable evidence of what's possible when sex workers band together and like a huge part of i remember my very first day walking out on to the stage which was like a little fish tank because of the show is not a strip club. That's like an enclosed age. With little tiny windows watch and donna. Open your heart video or a reliably girls unite. You'll get to see what it's like but by nears and just this idea that like if the window went up and the guy looked at me. And i wasn't what he wanted the idea that the girl he wanted next to me maybe what he wanted. And at the end of the day because we all had collective ownership of the business. It didn't matter. I was like oh you want you want. I wasn't born to the time. You wanna blonde absolutely me. Princess real quick. She's so nice and they're that feeling was always a part of of that workplace. I wish that we saw more of that in the adult industry. But i think i think we are. I think that The way that the workers now can own the means of production in terms of feeding content online. We see that. There's a customer for every person you know and and while white supremacy still exists able still exist classes and sizes and still exist the ability for us to find our niche and find the people who respond to that niche is their absolute and it always has been just been like oppressed by management. Know other forces that be totally. I really appreciate it and thought it was just immediately in establishing this dynamic between ramona and destiny of how immediately like ramona does not get keep any information. She doesn't key and it sounds like not only because she seems to really get a lot out of taking younger strippers in under her wing. But also because she wouldn't benefit from 'gate-keeping information and not scenario anyways in establishing that really smoothly and simply at the beginning. I thought was just so cool. Because i think for like your thank lynn a lot of movies about strippers and also just about you. Know how it's perceived that women fundamentally interact with each other is like inherently competitive when that is most often not the case. We talk about this all the time. Even dance movies right if we think of. This is a dance movie. There's always that part of the movie of just like you think that your this while you're not cistern let me tell you. But like we don't get that moment in the intel. She comes back at the very end. And it's even it's not bad. It's just whole place is changed. It's not that these women are hazing her in a particular way. she's just not hard of it anymore. There's only one tiny moment that i clocked where they're felt like there was a little bit of competitiveness where destiny is trying to get a guy early on in the movie to buy a private dance and cardi b. is like back off bitch. Well kinda that only quick moment and then later like a few scenes later cardi b. is helping destiny and showing her how to give a lap dance. Hey that's just learning but that's just your training wheels..

"I'm like i've seen this woman before. But who is she kiki palmer. I don't have that problem. Kiki palmer stand for life She's great. she's so good in this movie. So she's so funny so these women go to a bar. They find a rich guy. Get him drunk. Take him to the strip club where he does not realize they work at knowing that he will spend a lot of money there and then they have negotiated a percentage of his spending with the club. So this is something they regularly do although it doesn't always work so to kind of streamline this process and ensure it's success more often ramona comes up with a slightly different version of the plan where they will give the guys that they meet a mix of ketamine and md ama the most legal version of the plan. It's like everything's going well and then we're just going to ramp up a little then ru poisoning by crimes. You ramona walking okay. Slight tweak and no-one panic. I mean that's what it was like in two thousand eight like one hundred percent and also like in two thousand eighteen posts pasta of just which is a piece of legislation but limited speech about sex on the internet and shuttered. A lot of ways for people to So i mean like this movie is one hundred percent about what happened to strip clubs after the russia mike. I said after. I watched the i feel. The entire thing can be summed up in that moment when she sees the house. Mom working the front at the bar. Go there at your out here again in. The house says yeah. The these are all rushing girls. They're charging three hundred dollars for blow jobs in the back. And that was north beach in san francisco when i was dancing. And she thousand nine bossy one and then like the fall out of what happened like i started doing escorting and foreign and like went onto bateman content. What i'm doing now. But the opposite women moved from club outside and had to like ramp up what they would do and what they were willing to do and take legal. Were and you know. Start turning it into criminality. Out of desperation is one hundred percents. The story that we were all living expenses while to watch it played out by celebrities. Yeah there's a quote. I was gonna share at some point. Seems like now is a good time from jacqueline francis Who consulted on the film. And who You open for. You said suzie jack and got the stripper. She says in this oral history of the movie hustlers Quote when i read the story a couple of years ago meaning referring to the article that this movie is based on When i read the story a couple of years ago i was like damn. This is an amazing story and yet it's problematic surviving under capitalism is problematic for everybody and it's important to just talk about it unquote and i feel like that's a lot of what this movie accomplishes talking about. And showing what it can look like to have to survive under capitalism and the length some people in certain professions have to go to in order to survive under capitalism. And we can talk more about that later. but okay. So ramona pitches her plan of drugging people without their consent as a way to get the men to spend more money and faster and destiny is reluctant to join them. She thinks people will get hurt but eventually she agrees so they start implementing this plan on these rich guys. They find it bars. They take them to the club. They rack up there tab often having them spend thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in a single night we see them perfect their drug cocktail and like the ratios of the drugs. That cook is gosh. Extra special berries the most wholesome baby sitters club version of cooking drugs in your apartment that the world has ever seen your heart. I know it was. I was like a friendship is amazing while take away from that scene of cooking drugs basically in easy bake oven like it's not not. It's a hot plate but it's not an easy so funny i love it okay. So they're protecting their methods. They also start outsourcing to other women to bring in more clientele and kind of cast a wider net. They're making tons of money and they're working. Is this kind of big happy rich family. Then they realize they're like wait a minute. Why are we splitting our earnings with the club. We could just be taking everything we make so they start meeting. The men in hotel rooms Without security because clearly the security guards at the club were not providing them enough assurance to think that they should hire outside security. Bring it to a motel just just wanted to point that out truth-ler and then ramona brings in this woman dawn to help them out but dan is very sloppy. They ended up burning through their regulars which leaves them having to find strangers who are unpredictable. One night destiny has to deal with this guy who had jumped off his roof thinking that he would like jump in his pool. But he doesn't. He really badly injures himself so she has to take him to the er then like immediately after that has to get her daughter to school. She's got blood all over her. Everyone's looking at her and ramona is nowhere to be found while this big fiasco happening so you know. Everyone's kind of freaking out. This is also when destiny's grandmother passes away so things are falling apart then during one of the interview scenes elizabeth. The journalist brings up. Doug this is someone who they had stolen money from. But he wasn't this like gross wall street guy like the other ones. He seemed nice. He was going through a really rough time but even so they manipulated and stole from him so he goes to the police. Who then start to investigate these goings on a sting. Operation gets set up with don. Who had betrayed ramona and destiny. But they are too smart. Get fucking caught. Yeah that was a little bit reports of this like yes. There was a sting and like these girls right here. Not neil Right and like that bitch was not only sloppy with clients. She was sloppy with cops in a sting so nothing you came a bit right but they had a very scary drive home across the bridge so funny in my head. I'm like that. That was the bay bridge. There was no other way that can be any other bridge my mind that they were driving home over being followed by the by the car but not set. It's not your life. Suzy other people's lives in new york. But just like that feeling of knowing something is up and then like every car that you see is potentially the one that's gonna just stop and destroy your life totally that that sequence in particular is pulled pretty closely from the real story that this was adapted from to where it was like the real life person who was the inspiration for dorothy was like also is like something's not right with this already very messy person tonight and like tried to tip off the ramona of the story. And it's a it's in the history of this is pretty interesting and also where it deviate this. We'll get there. Yeah yeah So they don't get caught and arrested right then after this sting operation but they do eventually get arrested. A destiny ramona mercedes and annabel are all arrested. Destiny takes a deal to avoid jail time because she doesn't want to be away from her daughter lily and then the movie ends with destiny calling the journalist and her being like what did ramona say about. Me and elizabeth is just like you know. Why don't you just give her a call. Sounds like you really want to reconnect with her. And then i think the final thing is ramona. Who now works at old navy talking to elizabeth saying like the entire world is a strip club and some of us are tossing the money and some of us are doing the dance as like okay. We're going to end the movie on the moral. Got it like that. Move and in case. You weren't paying attention here. Is the thesis david. These shadows have offended but again like not not about it at all. So perfectly executed. It's like nobody's mad when like dominique when she sticks landing like it's just all cheer there's nothing to be mad about there's nothing remount about.

I'm not sure if i feel confident about that intro. Welcome to the cast My name's jamie lavdas. My name is caitlin guarantee and this is our show where we examined movies through an intersectional feminist lens using the bechtel test simply as a jumping off point to initiate a larger conversation. Jamie what is the bechtel. Test though o k so the bechtel test is a media metric invented by queer cartoonist alison bekdil sometimes called the bechtol wallace test that requires the following. There must be for our purposes. There's different versions of it. This is our version for our purposes. We require that there be two named characters of marginalized gender that talk to each other about something other than a man for two lines of dialogue and it has to be recent update it has to be a meaningful exchange. We can't define what that is but you know it when you hear it And fortunately this is not a movie where i think we will Struggle to find them so we won't need to really splitting hairs on it this week because this week we're covering i think one of our more popular requests ever. We've been getting a ton of requests for this movie. Since it came out four it came out maybe even the trailer dropped visa and we were kind of waiting for the perfect guest to come along and guess what she's here baby had happened. It's the hustlers episode and our guest. Today she is a writer performer and activist. It's suzie q. Oh hi elise. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much for a having this podcast super duper important And be like doing this movie super duper important and see having thank you the most important part. We're so excited to have you on the show and talk about this movie. Same hearing about this movie and thinking about this movie since long before it was even released. Let alone i actually ever been washed. It was only this week. So thank you for giving me the final. Excuse to like you know i. I am of vehicle industry. I was doing adult work in strip clubs around the same time. Business happened so i was really reluctant to watch it. You know it's like mu. Yeah you never know. Yeah so so you had only just seen this very recently very recently. Wow what were your. Just kind of initial thoughts. So i have a relationship with. I feel like every person doing adult entertainment during this time has a relationship with this movie somehow so i opened for jackie stripper. Aka jacklyn francis aka. Jackie hugh wont. Who's jennifer lopez grabs her boobs by the way i can't believe joplin was not shouting from the rooftops as soon as it happened until for the rest of her life. And why isn't that like the main part of your brand now. i don't understand. She had to sign a boob grabbing. Nda the kind of famous that unlike there could be an nda for anything. So i knew that jack was involved in the process of making. I did not realize she had as much screen time that she did. Which is really frigging pool. It's just in and of itself that movie existing and what happened to get it made and the fact that real sex were were involved and we'll surfers were involved in the making of this movie is important and i was worried that that sort of policy and procedural element of which i am very into all of those things articularly activists would somehow not translate to a good movie that i was that was a watch i was. I was worried but It sure did assured into to me. Yeah to me. This felt like a dirty dancing for adult entertainers like the it was like. It's not a coming of age story. It is that but it's it's more than that. It's a love story about love that is so meaningful and so unspeakable that like i can't even i. It must be had this movie to to talk about and look at. I feel like i would not be able to communicate the type of relationship between women that the.

Why Agencies Are Great Entry Points Into Entrepreneurship but Difficult to Scale
"It's interesting that you have a technical co founder gear technical. It's also interesting that you just had an agency for a long time and now your product. I feel like that transition is one that so many people wanna make but just never quite get there. It's hard it's really hard. Why because the money's too good it's like a really high high like you get paid a lot to see work and it feels good and you get the money today. No one in my sas is offering me fifteen thousand dollars today right like it's just not the case they sign up for fifty bucks or thirty bucks or whatever you know like and so. It's very slow long crime which is great because it's very stable and whatever but it doesn't have that rush agency life is like oh you hit a big contract and this big chunk of cash the bank account and you go out and have drinks and you're just like we're doing a project for insert large company name. You know like right. There's that kind of rush to. It's really hard to say. Don't go out and celebrate. Let's focus on this product. That's going to release a year. And then you and then we'll slowly get some customers then in a couple of years after thousand day rule stuff. Who wants to do that when you go make five hundred bucks today so one of the theories on the show that we will out often is like if you're like you and you feel like you're wired to be a hustler and entrepreneur that the easiest way to get that done and to create. A sustainable pneumatic income. Is to essentially start a agency or even more focused prototype service. Do you believe that to be true. I mean it's definitely the easy way in. I think that the product is service is better than the regular agency like. I loved that that kind of came about. We never really transitioned to that. Kinda like showed up a little bit after us. We of did some things like that with some of our customers. since we were doing wholesale rip for other agencies. We did have a very like priced out. You know like this is how much it is for the customer press team and this is how much it is if you had a forum and this is how much it is. If you skin out a shop in store but it wasn't truly productized. Like are now. So i would definitely say that if you're gonna go with client work. That product is is the way to go. Because then you at least have a chance at scaling. The promise it's even that's really hard to scale. I mean even the people that we know that have really scaled product is. You're still running an agency like you can tell yourself you're not running agency but you're you're still running an agency. There's a lot of human capital involved. It's really still really hard to

Halting the Holiday Hustle by Rose Lounsbury
"Altering the holiday hustle by rosebery of rose lounge buried dot com. If you enjoy the alliteration the title this post as much as i do. Give me a digital fist-bump english nerds unite. But i digress. Haven't even really started yeesh. Today's topic is the season that is upon us. You've seen the wreaths and the stores heard the beginning strains of those old familiar tunes. And maybe vince bruce. W behavior to ensure top spot on santa's coveted nice list. The s midst of time again and with that comes the inevitable holiday hustle. Marta least we seem to think it's inevitable. In america we go from store to store buying trinkets for loved ones and glittery decor of our homes. We bake we send cards. We are in a bit of do-goodery after all it is the season for giving we feel an obligation to squeeze in at least one act of goodwill toward men amongst the holiday parties and tinsel and above all we try to make memories those indelible treasures that last long for the trees on the curb and the last bits of shiny paper find their way to the trash. The trouble is all this holiday. Hustle often isn't available in fact. It's worse than that is downright stressful recreate so much anxiety. About having a good time enjoying the holidays we often fail to do. Just that the irony again. English nerds correctly used literary term fist-bump. This is on my mind today because my friend. Michelle recently posted this on facebook quote. I've been thinking about christmas cards this week specifically about not doing them for the first time ever. I love christmas cards. My joy sending them in receiving them. I have fun selecting a design but every year. They are source of some stress for me. What photo will we use. Do we take our owner higher photographer. How will find the time to get them all done. We typically sent around two hundred. I've also been thinking a lot about time and how we spend it very recently of known or heard of several young people who have passed away in their thirties and knowing this has been an important reminder to treasure each day in the people. I love for the gifts. They are some thinking. No christmas cards this year. I'm not saying i won't do them again. But who knows maybe not thinking that we will donate the money. We save children's charities more time for our family money to charities and less cards in the trash. This really is a tough decision for me breaking away from the tradition in the ritual of taking the time. Send something personal in the mail. That is why. I'm putting it out here so i can hold myself accountable to my choice and quote. Michelle received some very interesting comments from request to not join the anti christmas movement to light hearted individuals who wanted to halt the crazy holiday hustle and actually enjoy the season of love and giving which got me thinking to eat all feel this way about the holidays secretly for example of notice that my mom love you. Mom sometimes seems a bit stressed about baking holiday. Cookies mom if you're reading this and i know you are because you're one of those awesome moms who actually read her grown daughters blog about minimum. I wanna say this. We don't come to your house for the cookies while they are delicious. We come to see you to love you to enjoy the season of giving because we are lucky enough to be with those we love. If it stresses you out. Skip the baking all of you just as much over a package of holiday themed us. In fact i'm inordinately curious to find out if the red holiday filling tastes different from the everyday white thereof. Said it mom. You're off the hook for the cookies. If you want to be note this does in no way apply to the anchovies spaghetti. You make for christmas eve. That stays the holiday. Hustle stress stems entirely from the expectations. We put on ourselves. No one else really expects us to have the best lighting display in the neighborhood or fill each of our children stockings with themed presents. We expect that of ourselves so my suggestion. This holiday season is. Let's give ourselves a break. Just say no to. The hustle ignored the stores of you. Want to don't bake unless it brings you joy forgo the holiday cards unless licking two hundred envelopes as your idea of a good saturday night please. No i am sarcastic. But my don't judge my flaked my fair share of holiday card envelopes and may well do so again this year. What do i propose instead of being a straight up holiday hustler. Do something you love. Spread some joy. That's what the season is all about. Greet your neighbors with cheerful smile. And hello surprise them by shoveling the driveway when they're not looking note to my neighbors your totally welcome to fulfil your need for cheerful giving in this fashion and i promise to act very very surprised. Spend your baking time selecting and donating non-perishable goods for local food pantry. Better yet do that with your kids have a holiday movie marathon with your friends and copious amounts of holiday snack. Ary basically teacher self imposed expectations. And just do whatever truly brings you joy this holiday season now view. Excuse me. I'm off to buy a package of holiday oreos. I believe they're already on the shelves

Yeah and that's why I've been bonding with you all year long and it's been really really great even though the world has been a dumpster fire. We've actually hung out more this year than ever before. Yeah. When people have been asking me how I'm doing like I mentioned you I mentioned our group workout. been a very significant part of my of my. Pandemic. So thank you for that. Oh likewise, likewise, you've been a great friend, a great sounding board and it's a pleasure being stuck inside a different place. All my God, it's the. Dream let us unite separately in different houses. Yes. Yes and consciously connect when it's could meet like it makes sense and it's comfortable. Am I? Yes say otherwise no. I. Love It. It's good boundaries and good. Emotional exploration and one of the themes like one of the entries from your blog that is super like I got very move just by the title was when you're talking about learning to like yourself. So I thought that could be a good jumping off point to kind of just dive into all the thoughts and feelings because there have been a lot. And I wanted to like lazy like can we just talk about the instagram because let's go back to the beginning shall we or like? Yes to contextualize who you are because we don't know if people have listened to our first episode together how how did you? What is your elevator pitch for me? Well now I'm a I'm supposed to be a photographer, but I'm stuck in quarantine shoe facetime and I work out a lot and retouched photos. That's. Like that's pretty much will pages right now. My background is in portrait photography in commercial photography, alive entertainment. My spare time was was spent doing nature photography and a lot of legs just outdoor exploration but you'll everything's kind of off the table now in can't do any of that. Like I'm a photographer. Photographer when the world says, I can be a photographer. Just, kind of retouching photos on a large scale and. I've been writing a lot dislike bogging more. So I things like this time has been given. The has a lot to be introspective and just. I had a previous blog that was more for my photography and I had a hard time writing on the blog released continuing to write on there just because I, started that blog in. Reich right. When I'm out of college my early twenties and it was more just trying to me setting myself up to. Seem like I was like, Hey, I'm of Darfur look at my work I. Know My Shit Yeah and. What I look back on it now I read it I'm like Oh. Yeah I'm I'm a coffee little twenty year old. which which makes sense it makes sense. Yeah So just out of this of quarantine, I started a new blog called now starving artists that it was a euro, I sat on for a while because I liked the name which came from this. There was a joke back in the day in right out of college where up to my close friends they would disappear months at a time and then they would never hear from me because I was probably like somewhere in La trying to do some sort of Hustler on a project that I would just ignore my phone's like Oh. Yeah. Milly died but then she'll come back and resume. A few months later so I I bought this year L. because it was a toddler blog at first I like kind of right. I would of write letters to my friends essentially like no I'm not dead. Yeah. I am not a starving artist. This is what I've been doing this to working on but then I eventually scrapped it he he became better staying connected to friends inside and With quarantine and everything I kinda resurrected that you're al again just so that I could reflect and be more introspective on things that I wish. I could I told myself back Beckenham starting and also It's been a good place for me costs like. What I feel what I went through and kind of finding just acceptance with the with the process and the journey and also like Morsel recognizing that things are not necessarily good or bad. They just are led. We project what we want them to be an they say hindsight is twenty twenty but really it's hindsight's twenty twenty because we choose the connect the events of the reasons and make it fit current. Yeah and I think just kind of being okay with the. See the world and not be so judgmental on our souls is a better state of mind via. A read. So it's just it's just kind of been my sounding board.
Traveling To Medellin
"Let's open today's travel with Rick Steves travel writer Dave Seminar. He took his whole family to many in Columbia which used to have a reputation as the headquarters for a dangerous drug cartel. Our interview was recorded just before the global lockdowns kicked in. Hey. Thanks for having me on the show wreck. So you went to Medigene I, mean the image of Medina's like scariest a generation ago is one of the most dangerous cities on the planet. That's right. But but it certainly isn't any longer. I mean these days the murder rate in Medellin is lower than New Orleans Saint, Louis Chicago and several other cities as well. It's an amazing turnaround and. Tourism. Is a booming part of the economy I was just there. My son loves it so much. He bought a condo there and I was there for years this last year with him and we were standing on his balcony and and everybody was blown up fireworks and My son had a Colombian friend there with him and and we were talking about. It and when the Colombians see those fireworks, they remember in the days of Pablo. Escobar. That's what they would explode when they made a deal in the United States with the with the drug trade they're not making deals with the drug trade anymore with the Pablo Escobar outfit that's just celebrating. So they've gone from supplying America's cocaine habit to actually building A. City on live biting entrepreneurs. That's true. They I Columbia is still does produce eighty percent of the cocaine I mean to be frank. However look I went there with my ten and twelve year old sons and my wife, and I would never take them to a place that I thought was too dangerous. So I really consulted with a lot of different people before. Going, there, however, my parents and several other people said, Columbia. You're taking your sons to Columbia you nuts but I did my research and I talked to enough people who had had great experiences there that I felt comfortable doing it and we spent two weeks traveling all around the country and I felt very safe. The whole time tell us about the public tour. It was interesting. You know my wife said Pablo Escobar to are you sure that that's appropriate for our sons who are ten and twelve years old side I called one of the tour companies that had good reviews on trip advisor and he said Oh yes our tour is good for children aged six and up said really okay. Well, let's do it. We thought maybe we can teach them. Okay. He's a bad guy you know here's the. Evils of drugs and teach them a little bit about why the drug violence in and I thought maybe they a lot of it might go over their head but I thought well, they'll learn something. Let's do it but you go through a you goes through your neighborhood community thirteen, which is now trendy. It's filled with street art and is just a festival of good living not good living. It's still a poor area but a festival of happiness. Community Thirteen is sort of an interesting area I've I've found it to be one of the more disappointing stops to be honest with you on the tour I mean, it doesn't really have much to do with Pablo Escobar although it was a neighborhood that was wracked by gang violence, and then in two thousand eleven, the government installed a series of escalators there the idea was. Allowing people to be able to move safely through the community, get from their hilltop neighborhoods down to where jobs and transportation and things of that are. But when I was there in July about the experience maybe if you traveled at a different time of year, you might have an off more authentic experience, but it was absolutely full of tourists which really shocked me because here is. Sort of an impoverished neighborhood that has all credit to them. I. Think it's wonderful. They found a way to turn the violence of the neighborhood into a marketable commodity, but it was absolutely crawling with tourists and I sort of felt like, wow I really don't like going to places that are too full of tourists. So for me, it fell a little bit flat to be. Quite honest. But maybe if I visited another time of year, I would have I would have liked more. No, I don't think. So I mean I was there in the winter but to me, it was a former violence ridden gang ridden community that now is a kind of a tourist trap and it just like an amusement pier in San Francisco, almost or something like that. And what was really fun was the street art I mean, the street art was like it's like going through an art gallery and it's all this edgy colorful tropical kind of street art and you've got it all together by escalators I can imagine before those escalators came you know ten years ago you would have desperately poor people and You'd have the intimidation of the gangs and all of that and and the high murder rate and today there's there's not a hint of that and the escalators let people connect and I think you know the way Columbia has invested in its infrastructure has given poor. Barrios the confidence and the feeling that this is progress and changes possible and and one thing great about going to Medine is you write these cable cars because the city is in a very mountainous area and the poorest communities are pushed way up the mountain sides. But these cable cars, they're just like cable cars had a ski resort. They connect the people in the poor neighborhoods with the good jobs and the good shopping and the good entertainment down in the valley floor and writing these cable cars was just a kind of a celebration of community to me what was your experience on those cable cars? Well I love the cable cars just like you know I took the cable cars up to the park. RV. which is it's a long ride as interesting things that you take two different sets of cable cars. You can take one set of cable cars, which sort of goes through some of the rough hillside neighborhoods, and that one is actually fairly quite cheap to go through and actually when you're. On that first cable car, you're actually getting ordinary people who live in those neighborhoods coming on and off of your Gondola but then to go on the second. Gondola. which takes all the way up the mountain up to the park RV, which is just fantastic and I do recommend that that significantly more expensive so that that second cable you know Gondola is more for tourists in it's it. Would be too expensive for people who live in the humble neighborhoods. But as a traveler, it's worth it's worth it to do both at the lower part words the transportation for the community you you get a sense of the community and you get to talk to people. It's Kinda cool because you're floating above all of these barriers and then after the top city, stop you sort of plateauing you. Go across this amazing lush forest in a giant National Park and they're the only people still on the cable cars are tourists who can afford that but you get to the terminal point way in the middle of the park and I think the locals will come in there by bus, which would be much cheaper because it is a a wonderful jumping off point for for hikes in this nature reserve. Yeah. So the neighborhood that Pablo built I mean now it's called Barrio Pablo Escobar, Pablo Escobar's. But it was originally called million sin to a jury US medicine without shantytowns and the idea was he was really trying to improve his image in the country and he built about three hundred and sixty six humble homes in this neighborhood for people who are down on their locker many of them were homeless and actually living in a garbage dump area and in that region and you talk about street art they're. So there's a number of murals celebrating Pablo. Escobar would say that most Colombians despised Pablo, Escobar and everything he stood for. However in this little neighborhood and I met some of them. There are people who still revere him as quite a small minority of Colombians I would say, but you see mural several murals right in this borrow Pablo Escobar. Depicting. El Patron the hero, the Robin Hood that you're talking about in and some of those people, and there are some young hustlers there who are very interesting entrepreneurs. One of them has created, which you'll find in in the middle of this neighborhood is a Pablo Escobar memories. Museum now there was another Pablo Escobar Museum that was run by Pablo's brother, which was actually shut down and it wasn't in this neighborhood with the government closed that one down. This one is sort of a homemade sort of museum that some young hustlers in the neighborhood of made, and they also sell visits to the US through some of the homes where you can tour the homes and. It's kind of it's bizarre but yeah.
Interview with Athena Karknis And Parveen Kahr On Manifest
"Playing Greystone Athena cartoonist and playing Vanni. Bar Is Parveen car on manifest. They update US ON THEIR CHARACTERS Minus depressed because she had her. PTSD. It's a direct. Sorry. It's a direct pickup from. The cliffhanger at the end of season. One. We picked straight up from there like same clothing even your same day. It's the same day. Still recovering from what she went through in episode fourteen season one where she's Like held hostage and has had a gun pointed at her face and I think the last couple of episodes in season one, she just was really at a breaking point So that's where we pick up a SAMBA you. I mean as direct copy that was pretty quickly skip ahead. A little bit, and so grace's a little more pregnant. We learn in that for CEPA assode who the DAD is. Obviously I'm not going to divulge that now but it's actually it's really the way they the way we learn it is very interesting and surprising. So like even I was surprised when I read it, what are you both like most about your character I like most about her she's definitely smarter than I am. Which is nice. She's better at math. Really Nice. I don't it just like how just determine like she just wants to figure it out you know and I really. Appreciate that about her. She's definitely a workaholic. She has the type of work ethic that we can all kind of dream of having hence why she's gotten so far in her field you know. Why I think That's my favorite thing about her like she's definitely a hustler and she's GonNa and we'll see in season two like she'll go to any length to figure it out and if that. Manifests in her doing some really questionable things like she's she's about it. Yes. She's about it whereas Sunday's character. Yeah. I. Texted her the day after I'd rather race inscriptions. Ear. grace's really unflappable and she's much more patient and she's like the archetypal mother like she bakes cookies and she's But she's a really like patient and loving and understanding. She's everyone's rock and I would like a little more of that my life I'm a bit of a hothead and like. You. Know I can be want patients. Sometimes I need to channel my integrase. Try. I'm not quite as graceful grace about new themes or even tones sees it's definitely darker to lock arms. And I feel like it's a lot less about the first season was really about. managing relationships, and how this crazy event has thrown everyone into a tailspin as far as relationships. Wise. Yeah. And everyone kind of recovering from that and I feel like season two is really about. The death date and I mean a lot of it is really trying to. I would say that's the overarching thing and really trying to overcome that and trying to beat it really beat beat death fruit just basically more confused. But it's very there a lot a lot how it's been hard challenging for us today because there's so many things that happened in season two and we don't WANNA real reveal any of them because they're all spoilers and it's all very exciting and it's all very huge in you know even a small detail the revolutionary say. Then, you realize no wait. Yeah. Yeah. So we've all we've all been very cautiously biting tongues today, but what happens in season two and as far as the mystery goes like a lot of. Other. Questions open out and like new things unfold the don't necessarily you know. Close any doors as far as resolution of like Oh. That's the answer to the S. it's just like we'll wait more questions more questions. Look for manifest on NBC check your listings.
How to Move Forward When You're An Unemployed Side Hustler
"Hey guys. Welcome. Welcome back to the show. It's not Kayla here and I'm back with a solo. It's been a minute right? Well, here we are in October I can't believe it's October y'all like this year. It's just I. Mean I don't even have to say you know already and we also know that the levels of unemployment right now are at an all time high. Due to the effect that Cuvette has had on first of all human beings and then supply chains businesses. The way we run businesses and having to close businesses because of the fact that that foot traffic isn't there or people are not able to patronize those businesses. So in the last week alone I have seen many friends and acquaintances get furloughed or laid off fired and my. Heart really really really goes out to everyone. So it's just been on my heart to do this episode I decided to share again, my own story of unemployment and some tips that may be able to help you or someone you know get through this time as a site hustler who is now on employed doesn't have that full-time job to supplement the side hustle Share this with a friend or someone you know who might appreciate it and yes, you'll get through it. They will get through it. Please remind them that this too shall pass So let's let me share a little bit about my story for those of you who don't know or maybe you've heard bits and pieces of it but not the whole thing let's get into it. In Twenty fifteen I went through a seven month period of unemployment of not having a fulltime job I was recently graduated from Grad, school and yes I went from May to December without fulltime job. And now these were different circumstances. Obviously, it wasn't a pandemic it wasn't a lay off or furlough. So there are different circumstances surrounding me not having a fulltime job. However, it was still challenging sometimes discouraging time in my life and I would hate for anyone to be going through this alone feeling the same feelings of embarrassment sometimes hopelessness like I like will ever find a job. Feeling regret like should I have done XYZ differently should have explored a different career should I have worked in a different field and so on and so on I don't want you guys beating yourself up. So I'm devoting this episode to share in what helped me to keep my head up and push forward when I was unemployed and how I stayed on the side hustle path through it. All I. A little back story on how I came to be unemployed for years ago. Was it four years now? Hold on hold on let me do five years ago. I was attending graduate school for my masters of Business Administration at the University of Michigan Ross, School of business in the summer between my first and second years of business school. I was an MBA intern at Google. I was really excited at the time to land. This was a coveted internships I was so excited to land Google and dive headfirst into the internship I moved out to mountain view for the summer as working in AD sales. Now, for most MBA internships the goal and the expectation is. That you have such great internship that at the end of the ten to twelve weeks in your internship, you'll be extended a full time job offer from that company. That's how it's supposed to work well, that in happened in my case despite working hard despite getting APL-, employees, recommendations, and awards that summer and doing all I could to seem like I was fitting into the culture because you know that's big and like the whole Silicon Valley Tech World doing everything I could to be new Gli. That what they call it I don't even know anymore. googly. Remember, can you believe this was one such like an important part of my life? I promise you will be laughing one day to at this phase in your life So I was doing all I could to fit the culture and really land that job. But in hindsight that was not the right opportunity for me. So no matter what it probably just. was meant to be and I'm glad that it happened that way. However at the time, it didn't feel like this I did not get the full-time offer. I was devastated I was pretty dejected and spent the rest of the academic year dodging my friends, my classmates questions about what I was going to be doing post business school, and then graduated with no job in May of that year. From May to November, I would go on interview for job after job only to receive even more rejections at one point after going through six rounds of interviews with Uber for at the time they were launched Uber Eats I was going for marketing role with Uber eats and I got turned down to six rounds of interview. And you know at that point when you go for six interviews with the same company like that is exhausting, you really are like I got to get this role but I didn't get it and that was a moment for me when it clicks I said. Enough is enough I was done investing so much energy into trying to work for other people and I was ready to invest into myself. So let me be clear here. Don't get me wrong. I was still looking for a job I in no way meant that I was gonNA quit looking for jobs and just become an entrepreneur at that point but I knew that I was so depleted in terms of self confidence and self empowerment that I needed to do something differently. Shortly. After making that revelation I began freelancing as an independent social media consulting because at this point you know money funds are running low and. Full transparency even though at the time I was living with my then boyfriend now husband Killer. Doesn't like not having something to bring to the table? Okay. I like my pockets to be full. I like to have money my bank account, and there's no way in hell that I was not going to find a way to bring some income, and so that's what I did. I started freelancing social media consulting at that point I have into my network for that role and I went and did some freelance work for the organization. That I once was a part of two. So it's called MLC and I've mentioned it many times management leadership for tomorrow I started freelancing with them social media, consulting boom tablets you network make sure you have some money in your pocket

Are We Even Friends? with Dan Matthews (DANakaDAN)
"Hello. There's no like nine. Move How are you? Heard. Okay. Hanging in there. Yeah. This is a good start in the gas. We've just started right now. Absolutely just totally started the conversation at this exact moment nothing preceding this at all. Oh Man. Okay. Wait. So we need a backtrack I need a time check we we did a social distance hang out. Toiling outing myself right now but that was how long ago was that like a week ago. About. Three weeks ago. And then before that, we had met up. For about a year and a half. Africa for something. For somebody intentional look I would see you at events. and. We would see each other and stuff. But an intentional hang out hasn't happened for about a year and a half cents three weeks ago, which is a really really long amount of time. It might have been even lying half because we usually do it once in December and then this last one happened in July. Or? End of July early early August, and that's like even more than a year and a half. Do you credit that to like us being busy hustlers who are in our thirties kind of thing who also live in la where like nobody sees each other for anything unless it's like an event or is it like I? Don't know we're we had a long talk about friendships and I wanNA talk to you about that because I still have a lot to unpack. Why why do you think that is why do we see each other and hang out 'cause I consider you a friend. Dan Justify. What do you think it takes us a year and a half to hang out. I think largely has to do with the fact that we are in our thirties were hustling him out there and trying to do important stuff that we feel that we need to get done and I think that a big portion of it is we are used to began with you. Yeah. We're. We're friends and we've known each other for a really long time but I. I think you have closer friends our people that like you need the you generally more on a daily or like maybe you'll see like a weekly basis like you may closer than me and you are and so I'm sure you see. More often than you see me. and. and. So I think that like Rava level in our friendship where in a lot of people I think in their their thirties are where they've got the really close set of people. They need to see a lot more often and they've got people that are I don't see I go a year before I'll see like a family member but they're still family to me and they're still important bray I WANNA on keeping my life and so I would consider to be like it's kind of like that it's not like they're gonNa go away or anything it's not gonNa want to see them or they're not somebody I want to keep my life because I do think. That I'M GONNA keep my life but I think we both understand like we're coming from and the. Word against refresh we're not like close out the land to see you every single week. We're not interested I think we've got old enough I don't know. That level we just we can start digging deep in your friendship with that means.

How can I increase traffic to my tarot reading website?
"Hi Chris My name is Daniele from Centennial Colorado. I'm actually new to the show but very excited to incorporate the podcast side-hustle broke into some ideas have been working on my side hustle is doing Tarot into readings. It's something I've been playing with for a few years and I've done some live readings that different groups and I get great feedback I would love. To have people book sessions more regularly. I set everything up I've not add it to my website I have link to a page where they can vote their own sessions. I've created a newsletter I've got testimonials I've posted on social media and crickets. So my question is asking if you have any tips or insights on getting people to see my site and to book sessions. I would really appreciate it. I know that being seen is going to be one of the best ways. I did just book foods at a local metaphysical fair for. February. But anything besides that. If you can give me insights, I would love it and I look forward to hearing from you and thank you so much. Danielle, what's up? Thank you so much for listening and for calling in as well. Now, this is a great topic because I said. So many of our listeners essentially have the same question. For whatever their business is and you know just just to be clear first and foremost there's not a pithy answer and there's one thing I can say thirty seconds it's going to solve the problem. The. Question. That Danielle is asking, how can I get more customers? This is not just something that a lot of side hustlers went to. No I mean this is something that a lot of small business owners and executives at major corporations want to know and many of those big companies have entire sales and marketing teams devoted to customer acquisition Seo. Sometimes, they pay agencies a lot of money to come up with a creative campaign all in hopes of doing the same thing essentially that Danielle and maybe you wants to do, which is bring more traffic to your website or otherwise acquire more customers. So. On the third, way calls that I've been doing a pretty much every other Thursday for anybody who's interested in the third group model that I wrote about in the money tree, which if you don't know what that is, it's essentially. People like you who are all trying to start an income generating project I do these calls and we spent a lot of time looking at different situations and brainstorming a group about individuals. So for Y'all specifically like if we were going to call in and look at this, we probably pull up her website. I took a quick little look. Her website consists almost entirely of a way to book her to hire her for her Tarot reading. Service. which is a good thing. Of course, that's what she wants to do but my concern, therefore, my suggestion unless you wanted to do that unless you already knew who I want to hire on Y'all already pre sold on it there's not really any reason to go to her site and you also probably wouldn't find it unless she told you about it or somebody else told you about it. So my number one suggestion again, recognizing that this is a long term goal should probably try. Some other things too but my number one suggestion would be to add some more helpful content to this website. Give people something for free give them a reason to visit the site. So I don't know a lot about Terro- what do I need to know what is essential? What are the top ten surprising facts about it? What are the misconceptions about it who can benefit from a reading? Do I need to prepare somehow mean those are just some of the questions that I had. Just kind of thinking talking my head maybe even. A list of resources which I do say she has a she has some resources in links on our site, but maybe just kind of building that out more be a little bit more helpful than just hire me and not to say, you shouldn't have to hire me there. That should be there should be front and center. Absolutely. But if you want to grow your website ultimately, you're gonNA need to provide people reasons to come to your website besides just that one reason of hiring you.
How does retargeting work?
"Hey Chris, this is geared from Houston and I recently found your show after a friend recommended to me I really appreciate helpful content. Can you explain retargeting this came up as a conversation, the other day and I understood the general concept. But I'm not sure if it's only something for big companies or if side hustlers can do it too. I'm starting a podcast and blog for aviation lovers and I'd like to give more traffic to my website Ken retargeting with that. Thanks and I look forward to hearing. Hey Derek. Thank you so much for listening shutout to you and everybody else in Houston. So. Let's see here. Can Retargeting helps US lawyers? Absolutely it's definitely not something that is only for big companies but I for anybody out there he was like, what is retargeting well? Is. A form of online advertising targeted to customers consumers. Let's say based on their previous Internet actions. So if you went to a particular website. Later when you're around other websites, you see ads for that original site or the product sold on that website or perhaps something related and I'm pretty sure most people out there have encountered this themselves many times over like, hey, why was I shopping at target dot com earlier now for the for the rest of the week I'm seeing ads for target everywhere that has retargeting essentially. And anybody can access this. When you go through the tools of advertising Google and facebook, which you know they're very good at taking your money as mentioned there are options to do this, and basically what you do is you put a certain pixel on your website. They gave me some code you out of this on your website and it will begin keeping up with all visitors. And you can show ads to those visitors that specific group of his tour is the one who have been to your website. You can show ads to them. Later when they're going around to other websites now you might think, well, why would I spend money on those people? They have already been to my site. Shouldn't. I. Spend Money on reaching New People. The thing is online selling is all about conversion like if you want to try to reach everybody that's called spray and pray it's like, I'm GonNa spend a whole lot of. Things out there and. Just. Pray A lot. So it's not very effective, not very effective marketing. A lot of markets that people who are most likely to convert to become your customers are ones who have already been to your website or they have heard of you but they need reminders to hear about more than once and that's what retargeting can do. So this has proven to be very effective. If you're thinking about ramping up in some way, I would say especially not just when you're getting started but if you've been around for a little bit if you've had your offer for awhile. Endurance. Case the PODCAST and blog for aviation lovers. I don't know this is something you do like right on the front end but after it's been up for a few months, you have some decent traffic going to the website for example, that's when retargeting could be interesting. So if you're thinking about spending money on ads, I recommend you start with this approach because the conversion will almost always be better than. Just. Trying to reach random groups of people.
Interview With Phil Penman
"When you decide to go into business for yourself, it's as much about your hustle as it is about your talent. Skilled and talented as you may be if you're hustle is not on point. You are going to struggle not only getting into the game but also staying in it. Phil Penman understands that which is why he's managed to establish himself as a celebrity street and commercial photographer. The links that he had to go to his Paparazzi could make the difference between getting the shot or not, but also more importantly the difference of thousands rather than hundreds of dollars. That kind of work is not for the faint of heart especially when it involves negotiating the streets of new. York. City on a bicycle. But as Phil understands, you've gotta do what you gotTa do this is Ebonics and welcome back to they candid frame. Jones, thanks for making time for me. I appreciate it. Thanks for your patience and finally getting round here. Thank you for inviting me I. So you're up you're up to like five, hundred, twenty, eight. So is man gets because you sent me your book months ago. I, talked to my wife who's that producer to try and make sure that we got you in somewhere but it can be quite the juggle because there's so many people that consider. Really I love the Book I love your story but one thing that's fascinating in before we get into talking to you about your photography is just like man you have held so many jobs. So many things. List as well. So it was just was just the the nature of being like a hustler that you were just like just did what you needed to do in order to get by that is that why you? or so many different at one hundred percent of house. So when I was in college I was studying photography and a box. If Alford like a hundred sheets for safe thirty pounds and that's a of money to a college student and you having to crank this week off the week. So I had I would study and I had to free jobs that I was doing waller's in college. So in the daytime, I would serve lunches to like rich preppy boy, Colt prep school kids at a nearby like boy school than a night I worked in a bar and unlike club four nights a week, and then the weekend I used to work even Lego land or Twickenham rugby Stadium. So I would literally our work all day through the night and then have like free hours sleep got a college study as. You did this casino the the bitch would be like we used to do five transparency. Not only will take was the chew to say, have to stop off and the fuck that's enough free. Way, worked in the bar and he go pay to twenty an hour. Like notes it. Hasso Hasso. When you're young. You don't need that much sleep exactly now I'm just like I'm Pasta by seven o'clock. So, when did you get the bug? When did you discover that you wanted to study photography in photographer it was my backup believe it or not i. was fifteen and I wanted to be a sports teacher. My Dad was like, well, you got to have a backup. And he was a professor I so I kind of I grew up with a darkroom and seeing prints in the bath tub being washed and stuff. So he's like, hello go for this newspaper, pick out the picture the you think and if if I agree with you then I'll let you study photography as a backup and I ended up being a terrible sports teacher so You know I virtually failed sports studies by a my photography. So I'm like that's the way man to find out that photography is your fallback. It's funny. Because most people it's like. Repeats the first choice, not the second. It's like my lap was always insistent on you always have a backup everything. So that was my backup and then. Studied like the next freeze I guess and then. Started working straightaway into. Work you started doing initially. I did a year as a local newspaper photographer where it was tree, we do a jobs today and it would be like they had us going every thirty minutes. So you're driving around hundred miles per hour from job to job walk in the room sheet the paycheck next job, and it was like a fos learning cup. So you'd be like sports, events, politicians, babies, presentations, and then I landed a job working for news agency where I was doing hard news but I'm still doing. I basically landed a GIG. She will the cool proportion shift for Microsoft and like I like twenty, one years old and boss was worked for is making so much money from that the it was great for him. So I did I did about six months with him and then I got the opportunity to work for A. Company in Los, Angeles and just jumped
