"i edison" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"On baseball tonight. Mo of course paul indicators. A researcher for espn is haunt you on the show. Get up Mike greenberg has nasty things to say about him off air wild to employ him as wingmen on his radio. Show nemo you. And i are emailing back and forth this morning after nevin In his comments about that play in the red sox yankees wildcard game in which aaron judge was thrown out at home place. I said on the podcast yesterday. I think or maybe i didn't. Some radio shows that. I thought for sure that once knowing fell. Who's a great guy. I'm gonna make this clear. He's he's a fun and a great person and he's Someone who has a great perspective. I thought for sure that when he would see a replay of air judge being thrown out that he would basically say. You know what i made a mistake. He didn't In speaking with the new york post he talked about the play and strongly stood his ground. his quote was to the post. The there were a lot of factors. I did see low throw. It was off line as well. Factored in the wet service widget which ended up being the demise because he was a quick skip into bogart's club. He made a great baseball play in home. He said i know what it looks like. I know what the situation is a it kinda third base coach. I am a made a play to win the game. It didn't work out. It was a great baseball plan. Their side in a big moment. It didn't go our way ice hembo. I strongly disagree with them. I think an an. And i. I've i've never go third base renews or more about that than i do but i certainly have talked to a lot of third base coach through the years of watch a lot of third base coaches and i think that the big factor why he couldn't be wrong in that situation. What was the fact that there was only one out and they were down two runs. Okay and you've always heard the mantra of can't make the third ad at third base Either to start or to end in any. I feel the same way about this situation. You cannot make the second out at home plate on a an attack play. It wasn't close hembo. It was not close. But i i would like to come to the defense of film evidence some sense and that's because runs at a premium in this game and so i don't really mind be aggression and the fact that there was only one out in my opinion at least his reason to be more aggressive than if there were no outs or if there were two outs to me that if there's there's a time that you can take that risk it is with one out and also joey gallows on that joy gallows likely to create either an uninterrupted out by shredding outer popping up you also with one out have to deal with it a double play because stanton hit that ball so incredibly hard. It was going to be a first third situation so given the context in the lineup and in that same column he denied the fact that you know gallo batting had anything to do with his decision. I couldn't possibly be true so in my opinion even though you laid out the context properly. I don't mind playing the game with a little. Bit of reckless abandon. We're gonna need to score. Runs to beat the red sox. There's an opportunity to do so and he was right. Required essentially a perfect rely in order to mail judge now in watching the replay several times. This morning. I think something that i did underestimate to. Some degree is just how bogart's is making that throw because it stem because the left derek. Show so shallow from the back of the infielder very easy throw once. He collected the baseball. But i don't have issue with film evans decision at the time. I don't need him to defend himself. You know to the post but candidly like. That's i think he actually made the right baseball decision. And when you make the right baseball vision sometimes the the outcome doesn't play in your favor and in this particular case i would come to his defense. All right. i'm gonna pick back at your Last chance for bottle before before we move on to other topics and i'm glad you're backed off. It wasn't a great relay. Okay phil phil saying. It was a great play. Wasn't a great play. Is i to people yesterday. They were like pointed out. Exactly what you just did. The bogart's it wasn't like he made this unbelievable throw forever. It was just a it was a routine pro once he gets the ball On the double play. You mentioned the possibility of a double play. I think you will being as statistically oriented as you are will back off. This is well. Because you and i both know joey gallagher's not hit into grabble double-play right. Yes you joey. Gallo has not someone. you're setting up a double play against and you could also very easily tell like you described that vanderbilt bogart's when he turned was sorta surprised at judge was going because he sorta lollipop the ball in there like it was not a firm throw he didn't russia's throw and it was a very shallow route so generally speaking again. I liked running the bases with aggression. I've always believed that more runs are left on the base passed in our thrown out in this particular situation and obviously did not work for the yankees the context kill them but again i don't mind it so much just because my bathing philosophy but look i can't be proven right here. Judge got thrown out by fee. For god's sake. Yeah i got. I talked to people around baseball yesterday. And they all thought it was not a good san. Here's the other linked to and i agree with you that The presence of joey gallo coming up probably was a factor in evans. Mind as he's making. The situation knowing gala doesn't generate a lot. I actually asked aaron boone in our zoom call with him before Tuesday's game 'cause. I know he's well aware of the conversation. A from folks in baseball about. Why would you have gallo batum behind stanton because it's an invitation to work around stanton to me if you have to trust these players if you put them in these positions joey gallo fourth and then you have a situation where the third base coaches thinking. Oh my god. This guy's automatic out that he can be better cleanup. Yep right actor right. He should be hitting right. He's a complimentary peace. Put blame tores batting. Cleanup or brett gardner. For god's sake that he's actually going to put the ball in play if that was a factor in how nevins thinking that he and boonie needed to talk before the game and they should needed to come up with a different lineup. I mean so. You know. But i i again i want to say i. I would love to have this conversation with with fill in person. I probably will When i see him the next time And i completely respect is adamant. I think he just made a mistake on that. Okay give me an x factor in the division series for each of of these Today we course start with the white sox in the astros buster. I favor houston in this series because of their strength of record. Here's what made the standing say. There was only a two game difference between these teams. But i believe that is this evening. And that's because i ran the numbers for every playoff team against the nine other teams that wound up in the playoff fill. The astros went nineteen and fourteen in those gains. That was the best record in baseball. The white sox went thirteen and nineteen in those gains. That was the worst record among the ten teams. That made the playoffs. Am i really feel like if you're the white sox you're feeling good today about giving the ball the lance lennon game one because i just love the way that he attacks hitters you know if he was like a younger pitcher who kinda picked it the strike zone. I'd be worried about him. I love landslide is a game. One starter what do you think i do to win. has had sort of up and down season but in a game best. Give a set the tone for the series. That was the right decision for tony..

"It was a crime to do nothing like literally. You could just be doing. Nothing and i was a crime because you weren't working right so you get a couple of hundred years of puritans intermarrying and hand Having this culture and then you get the daughter of a methodist minister from puritan stock. She marries a puritan. She has a son. And then you have this guy who is completely obsessed with working right. He's a complete user worker hollick and invents his whole life so i. I don't think it's an accident that The edison was like this when you take into consideration where he came from and the the culture and the history of of the puritan people In if you wanna learn a little bit more about this And how of puritan culture in in some ways still shapes america. A really interesting book is called. Albion seed the talks about that. I highly recommended. But yeah thomas. Edison super puritan. Even though he wasn't religious superperson a couple of things one is industrial sabotage industrial espionage. Both were extremely common during addison's time so Mending the lightbulb. Especially when he's having public demonstrations people from westinghouse people from other companies are just walking into menlo park and just unscrewing lightbulbs and taking them and In fact it gets it gets really bad. They have these public demonstrations and they can't tell the difference between westinghouse people who are stealing them for for espionage purposes and. Just you know bystanders. Who want souvenir and take the chance to the lifter. Edison lightbulb But this is a big problem. It was a it was a different time. Like during the current wars when westinghouse and edison or both trying to electrify new york city. You know got really It got dirty you know with people intimidating each other and beating each other up and and business was really like bare knuckles back then. That's not something. I talked a lot about because edison himself didn't had a lot of involvement in it. But i think it's really interesting aspect of that time period and if you want to learn more about it the book the current war is is good and so his last days of night. There's another interesting book about that time period the last thing and then i'll end on this even though it's kinda early from his life is a quote from edison so his very very first invention the first thing that he successfully patents is the electric vote recorder and so edison is a nobody right. So how are you gonna make an electric vote recorder to show off for the patent office. He has to make it And so he literally has to. You know the casing for the thing. Of course you can do. The electronics telegraph operator. He's working with electron all the time but he has carved the casing for this thing so He does. He carves wooden casing for this thing..

"He said mary had a little lamb. They pulled out the wax paper and examined. It saw mark vibrations. And then put it back under the needle at the beginning and they pulled along roughly the same speed and as they did they Heard edison's voice saying. Mary had a little lamb back to them. Cruzi cried out mind gut in him o or an english my god in heaven his like his mind is blown right mesler would later say it was not fine talking but the shape of it was there. There were cheers. And congratulations all the way around. People can't believe that they have imagined for the first time in history heard recorded human speech and it can be difficult to understand. Just how monumental. This was when edison told his attorney. Benjamin butler about the invention. The ladders response was dear. Edison tell me something more about your wonderful invention in recording the human voice. It is so remarkable that i do not understand it at all. His confusion is pretty understandable. Given that edison himself struggled to find the words to describe what he had invented he wrote quote. You probably remember our experimentation about printing the human voice. I have not done that. But i have produced in recording the voice on a paper from which i can reproduce the same voice at any future time as you can listen and recognize the voice of the original speaker in speaking to the philadelphia. Record a newspaper edison's colleague. Edward johnson described it similarly. He said that. Edison had invented an instrument quote. By which speech can be recorded while it is being delivered on prepared paper and that it could be quote re delivered at any time and even by today's standards. That kind of sounds like magic. I can record a voice on paper and then make the paper repeat back the same voice and the people at the time it was like magic. It was a complete sensation. It's difficult to put ourselves in their shoes. Because now we are so used to seeing and experiencing new technologies that were sort of jaded to it. I mean what could be invented. Now that would truly blow your mind. What was the last invention that you saw it. And we're just like whoa mouth agape you couldn't believe what you're seeing or hearing it's really rare these days right. I don't even know what could do that now to us. Maybe like a teleportation device or something like that. That's kind of like what this was the people at the time it really it melted their brains their stories that they test the device with random strangers. They play it for people and they ask them. What do you here and the people respond. I have no idea what this is i. I don't know what i hear. And you know the audio was not as high quality as recorded audio not as high quality as the that..

"Edison had this compulsion to win to be the man in charge the man on top. He said as much when he said quote. I don't care so much about making my fortune as i do for getting ahead of the other fellows. I'd like to finish up with to last stories from his life. you know. I like to draw comparisons between people on this podcast so particularly enjoyed this little anecdote. A journalist asked edison whose voice off the people in history he most would have liked to have heard napoleon. Edison replied instantly. The journalist responded in approving town while the voice is should most like to have heard. Is that of our saviour. Edison thought for a moment and said well you know i like a hustler. The last story. I wanna share comes from the very end of edison's life just two years. Before his death he was getting old and finally slowing down. It was the fiftieth anniversary of his incandescent light bulb and a huge international celebration was planned as part of it. Henry ford had the entire lab complex from low park which was long since abandoned disassembled and put back together in dearborn michigan as essentially a museum. Ford had edison's old lab completely restored to exactly how it looked. When he invented the lightbulb he even went so far as to track down. The old chemical manufacturers who had stopped his lab so that he could have the shelves stocked with the exact same chemicals and materials as edison had had. At the time he also excavated the top foot of soil from menlo park and had it shipped out so the old laboratory could even sit on top of the same soil as it had when the eight year old edison entered his old lab. It took his breath away. Then where do you suppose. They got him all he asked. They're all here. Every one of the chemicals. I had at menlo park. He paced around for a few minutes and then sat down at a workbench with tears in his eyes. He said i could sit right down here and go to work with my old tools. He attended a party and gave a speech later that night but in the morning he was uncharacteristically exhausted. The exhausted old man needed arrest. He turned to his assistance. And said i'm tired of all this glory. I want to get back to work. Thank you for listening to this episode of how to take over the world next week as i mentioned i'm going to try something different and release an end notes episode. We're going to talk about some of the random stories and thoughts that i couldn't get into this episode. Also be talking a little bit. More about edison tesla the current wars and more until then. Thanks for listening..

"Which is obviously very easy to understand. I would say that. His first marriage was worse. Because mary didn't know what she was signing up for right. Edison wasn't famous at the time. So he kind of armed her. She said yes. She marries his guy and all of a sudden she's thrust into the spotlight of being married to this world famous man and he's never around and she didn't know that was gonna be part of the equation whereas meena when she married edison. He was already famous and she knew what she was signing up for maybe not the extent of it. She was certainly still annoyed frequently that he was not around as much as she would like. And it's just difficult to deal celebrity and she was in the spotlight a lot. But you know. I think she dealt with a better than mary. For that reason. She kinda knew what she was getting into. His children His sons from his first marriage. William and tom where They thorn in his side for his whole life. They are always making trouble. They embarrassed him. They married kind of disreputable. Women they would make all these claims that you know especially tom. Thomas edison junior would sell the rights to his name. Because you know then people would just take any old mentioned you know. This is the thomas. Edison and then very little letters junior. This is the thomas edison lamp. This thomas edison. Whatever and Transplant people into buying it. These kind of low quality products. So tom was going around selling his name. Edison had to threaten to sue his son to get him to stop. So yeah william and tom. Troublemakers never really made much of their lives. His sons from his other marriage were much more helpful. So charles was one of those sons. He was like most interesting man in the world. He was not only very successful business executive he wrote poetry and compose songs and was was kind of a ladies man early in his life. He eventually became the governor of new jersey and he was the ceo of edison inc for a while and was very successful. Ceo did well and Had a working relationship with his father his other son theodore was the only son who really followed his..

"And starts work power plant facility on pearl street. He also establishes new company. He wanted to manufacture all of his own machinery by his board opposed getting into manufacturing. So he starts. Edison machine works as a separate company which turned out to be a pretty good call as that little company would go on to become what we know as general electric which was a pretty big deal. For quite a long time. Edison was juggling all these different constraints inventing and patenting the technology building in manufacturing all the different components necessary for all this to finally happen but delay after delay piled up and then finally on monday september fourth eighteen eighty two edison turned the lights on on new york city. He actually has them turned on at three pm so that no one would notice if they didn't work but by seven. Pm people start becoming aware. Whoa wait the electric lights are on all over the city. It was a total transformation moment in the history of the world but it was also a little anti-climactic there were few news reports about it. No parties no celebrations to steady practical warm light but it was enough radisson who said quote. I have accomplished all that. I promise now. Edison has a really really packed life. He invented a lot and did a lot over a long period of time. None of it probably matches the heights of inventing the phonograph and the electric light so do sort of a quick overview of the rest of his life before going back and diving deep on a few stories. Things started to go really well for edison's electric business but then in eighteen eighty four. He had the worst year of his life. A giant financial crisis hits the us and sinks him into debt and around the same time. His wife dies at the time. No one could or no one would say what exactly it was that she died from. But in retrospect it's pretty clear that she sadly died of a morphine overdose over the next couple years. Edison managed to pull himself out a financial crisis and by eighteen eighty six. He's in really good situation. With more than three hundred thousand lamps in his circuit and booming revenue and profits. He also remarried in eighteen. Eighty six to a woman by the name of meena miller and it's a great year for him businesses. Doing well he's in love. He's teaming with invented energy and even.

"The the obvious role models i think edison was certainly a role model Probably want biggest role models Yeah i read books about him. Absolute and It's an interesting contrast like edison. Versus tesla is interesting. You know the the company tesla And the reasons is because we use an ac induction motor which is knocked texted test developed. And the guy probably deserves a little more play than he gets in current society but on balance. I'm a big fan of edison and tesla Because edison brought his stuff to market and made those inventions accessible to the world whereas tesla didn't really do that So that's so certainly a big one. So there you go. I do think that you is probably the closest living thing that we have to edison. And you know. He acknowledges that he takes him inspiration from edison's life which is not surprising to me. Speaking of comparisons Obviously another easy comparison to make is with steve jobs both had a propensity for starving themselves. And for we're diets. The jobs would have periods of his life where he would only eat. Apples and edison had appeared in his life where he would only drink milk. That's the only drink that he would consume So that's again kind of a a weird similarity between the two. They also had this flair for showmanship. That was very akin in another connection. That i just think is funny. Is that you know. Edison did not invent but he did perfect a telephone and similarly steve jobs did not invent the smartphone but he kind of perfected it in made it this new mass market thing with With the iphone. And when steve jobs introduced the iphone he did so with a commercial called. What else hello. This commercial featured famous movie moments where people answer phone and say hello and then it shows iphone and says hello on the screen. And i'm sure that it was unintentional to pay tribute to a word that edison invented. But i find it meaningful in a cosmic sort of way that he did kind of accidentally pay tribute to edison. Okay other notes Okay so edison was like a classic mad scientist. He was always blowing himself up poisoning himself. He nearly killed himself all the time. So nearly choked himself on poison. Gas nearly radiated himself to death with xrays. He nearly blinded himself by staring at lights. He electrocuted himself multiple times. He set himself on fire. Burned himself with acid. He held things that blew up in his hands including tons and tons of light bulbs In fact it's my conspiracy theory that he probably made himself death with an experiment. Gone wrong you know the famous quote that he had about when he went death is he said that he hadn't heard a bird chirp since he was twelve and i find it odd that he targeted it to that exact date in the story about what did make him. Death was always changing right. There is no good answer Different diseases different. Conditions were put forth and edison himself said different things. But you know he said. I haven't heard a bird chirp since i was twelve years old. And that's right when he was starting to get all these chemistry experiments and experiment in his basement and there are reports. He said his mother said that he blew out the windows in the basement multiple times he was always blowing stuff up and and blowing out the windows and of course what he did on the train that got him kicked off the train. So it's my i. I think it's kind of a conspiracy theory. I guess 'cause i haven't heard anyone else say this but i think it's possible that he at least made his deafness worse by blowing out his eardrums in an experiment when he was a young boy when he was twelve or thirteen years old. So there you go by just funny that he was like this classic mad scientist who is nearly always killing himself..

"Which is the equivalent of about ten point. Five million dollars in twenty twenty money. He's well funded but he's on the hook. He has to invent the lightbulb now. He's got the eyes of the world on him if he doesn't he's humiliated and ruined and so edison goes to the strategy. That always worked best for him. Which is to forget the clever theorizing and just experiment and tinker. Like crazy until he figured something out so he stands up and he and his team out thousands of different substances to see what will work and he continues these experiments over months and months with everyone pressuring him and waiting to see what he will come up with. Edison reportedly said during this time quote. I think there's no doubt. I am the busiest man in america which is true. He's got a group of workers that are referred to as the insomnia squad and people referred to this bizarre situation that you'll visit the lab in menlo park and it looks like like a homeless shelter. There are just people fully clothed sleeping all over the place under benches under tables in random corners and closets and because edison was completely obsessed with figuring this out he had all the pressure of the world on his shoulders and he expected his employees to feel the same way about it. He did so. There was no regular sleep schedules. You came into lab. You worked on finding a working lightbulb until your body just couldn't take it anymore. At which point you curled up and grabbed an hour to of shaddai under some bench somewhere. And then you got back to work. There were no other priorities. And there were no distractions. Well actually there was one minor distraction for edison. When a minor scientist by the name of clarence blake gives a lecture in which he pays tribute to alexander graham bell for inventing the telephone without mentioning edison. Edison goes burke. He considered himself essential to the creation of the telephone. Because of the transmitter that he had invented and it was a really big deal it made the telephone much more usable over much longer distances. And so edison kind of had a point when he said that he was one of the fathers of of the telephone so for someone to give a big public speech where they only mentioned bell as the sole inventor of the telephone at that insulted edison and he felt slighted. So when one of edison's european agents a guy by the name of george gerard sends edison a letter saying you know what we need is better receiver for the telephone. Edison jumps at the chance. He takes a couple of months away from the light bulb and invents a new chock receiver that makes a telephone much more functional and capable of receiving messages from far greater distances..

"Edison is serious. All he hears us. Whoa i invent something. That edison can't then or hasn't then i get fifty thousand dollars. So when he does because he you know he's a genius himself. He invent something that that edison didn't indent he goes and says where my fifty thousand dollars in edison says. You know there are no fifty thousand dollars. That was a joke and Tesla leaves in a huff but They didn't exactly reconcile. They were never like friends but they were cordial throughout their careers. And i think tesla team to understand that wasn't serious and he had misinterpreted this because tesla did have kind things to say about edison. Which you wouldn't expect if he felt like he was truly ripped off by a dishonest man. They did have tremendously different approaches which they talked about sometimes and look. They were rivals. They were both competitive guys Who took a lot of pride in their work. Tesla said of his approach quote. I did not need any models. Nor drawings or experiments. I could do all in my mind the way. I unconsciously developed a method for materializing. Inventions ideas is exactly the opposite of the purely experimental method of which undoubtedly edison is the greatest and most successful exponent. I liked one quote that described their differences. That said quote tesla's was a more original genius than edison. He surrounds himself with a halo of electric light and calls purple streams from the soil. His aim is the hook man's machinery directly teenagers. And i think that statement that tesla's a more original genius than edison is is certainly accurate from a certain viewpoint. Think tesla was probably smarter from a pure. I two horsepower. Sandpoint than edison was. But you know obviously. Edison had the more successful career had more inventions. Which is why. I always say that energy and work ethic matter more than intelligence in the long run. I also think that edison's approach which was the experimental method rather than tesla's more theoretical way of doing things is a better approach. And i think that's another reason. Why eight edison had more success despite probably on an objective level being less intelligent than tesla. I think one thing that kind of demonstrates the difference between them is an incident in eighteen ninety five. Nikola tesla saw his entire lab. Burned down much as your member. Edison did and Edison was very sanguine about seeing his lab. Birdman tesla was not he said. And i quote. I am in too much grief to talk. What can i say the work of half my lifetime. Barry nearly all my mechanical instruments and scientific apparatus. everything is gone. i must begin over again. So you can see from that. That tesla even though he was his genius probably didn't have quite the same grit and determination. That edison did not quite. He did start over again. And so i would say he did have a lot of that but you know some sort of extraordinary in that regard and To speak to their relationship a little bit. tesla also said after this you know great fired lab- quote. I have received a letter from mr edison offering me the use of his workshop. In which continue my experiments he has shown me the greatest kindness and consideration. I do not think however that will accept the offer. Sony was sort of It was a competitive but you know also sort of friendly relationship. I like to think of it as like professor x magneto or something like that. Speaking of tesla. I find it hilarious. That elon musk named his company. Tesla because he lon is so much like edison in.

"Hello and welcome to how to take over the world. This is then wilson. It's good to be back today. I'm going to be talking about thomas. Edison the world renowned inventor and businessman. I'm really glad that i chose to do this. Episode about edison. Because honestly he's underrated island a lot while doing this one. And i think you will learn a lot listening to it. He was an unbelievably prolific inventor. Filing one thousand ninety three patents in his lifetime among those are two of the most important inventions of all time. The light bulb and recorded. Sound and thomas. Edison is interesting because he is in many ways. The original inventor entrepreneur celebrity. There is sort of a playbook now If you think about someone like bill gates or steve jobs or elon. Musk and that playbook for how to be a famous inventor originated with thomas edison. He was really the first one to do it. In fact edison celebrity really surpassed any of those guys. I mean yes. Bill gates nealon musk. They are famous. Now is very famous but edison was literally the predominant celebrity of his. The most famous man in celebrity is almost kind of underselling. What he was. He was viewed in these almost mythic god-like terms after he died in the usa. There was an effort made to extinguish all electric lights in the entire country. For a minute as attributed edison he seemed to represent progress itself. And the idea that man had mastered the elements and can do anything now. Edison was born in this era of incredible change and he wrote that two levels of celebrities previously only enjoyed by kings and conquers. So they wanna study on. This podcast is two things. One edison the businessman and inventor and how he was able to achieve success in those domains to the extent that he did because it was truly remarkable and then secondly edison the celebrity and how is able to spin the perception of his success into nearly unparalleled fame and influence. This first episode will cover edison's life through the invention of recorded sound. And then the second part which should be coming out in just a week or two will cover his life from the invention of the light bulb to his death. So let's start at the beginning. Thomas alva edison was born in milan. Ohio on february eleventh eighteen forty seven. He came from a family. A very contrarian meant his grandfather had opposed the american revolution and been forced to flee to canada when us successfully gained independence from great britain but then his father samuel may the opposite mistake and backed a failed rebellion in canada and was forced to flee back to the us. Thomas was the youngest of seven children born to a moderately wealthy family. He was born in ohio but mostly grew up in port..

Sam maybe didn't like it you so a good prime for sometimes things just going not the way that he expected I don't know if you want to end on this. But i just have a note and i wanna talk about it. What did you think about izzi's protest. Whether it's to do with race gender sexuality class shows like to be able to tackle these sort of issues right and some of them are a bit more substantive than i guess in a typical but they did they did bring the notion of. I guess clause and in private schools. I just wanted to get your general foods. Because i shared a bit of it while we were watching the shirt and i thought i'll just leave for this podcast. 'cause we know i love talking about social class. I knew that it wasn't gonna change anything We'll say you know. The purpose of the protest is is to cause change. You know it's not to pieces whatever and it's to bring shop system. And what is he was trying to do. Spring sucks to the system like fully agree. Like why can't they just wear anything. I get it. It's not how it is. It's a providence call. it's hoity toity. i get all the by end of the day appliques but like a social media influence our the whole appeal. The whole allure of private schools is that exclusivity the fucking wanker in us of at all naming libraries off the audio lineage. Even though your kid doesn't outta ready to fucking book right. That's the whole point of private schools. And i one hundred percent agree with you. It's like the catholic church if you why would you bother trying to change such an. Og institution does not point like if you'll trying to bring change to to to that or even to life private schools. There is no point in that because the ideals the foundations build off of that right so yes it it's expression of identity but it's also unfortunately like in corporate environments you know there's this prejudice against like piercings and tattoos and hairstyles right. It's not right. But it's i guess it's like you like what's the offset if you're going to put your scholarship in particular with izzy and also casey if you're gonna put your scholarship on the line is worth it. Yes it's wrong and people should be able to express themselves however they want to but they are operating within an urgency institution that you know wang soft to that sorta tradition.

She's there to bounce everyone else the trust of take some down and i'm with that interesting. 'cause she's the youngest sibling What she's hot to look out for some Young is yeah. She's always false responsible. Well let's go to kc because we're naturally going to talk about sam throughout these characters. Casey is hands down. One of the best supporting characters i've ever seen in a tv show ever It's it's it's one of those notions way. She isn't a perfect character but she she's been through a lot and she's been able to process a lot of that as well i. It was a whole series long journey for but something like you say at the core of her was she was the protector. It sad that she's the youngest sibling and she felt the need to protect sam. But obviously it made sense And i guess also with the family dynamic with doug kind of stepping out on the family he came back but like stab you stepping out on the family you know. Just knowing how elsa is as a mother she probably kind of put that spoken. Unspoken pressure on casey to to check on and check folsom to make sure. That sam's okay. And i guess in in in real life in in tv shows us thought to see you know when there is a sibling that requires more needs more attention from the parent by default. The other siblings kind of have to make themselves smaller and it may. It broke my heart. Watching casey have to constantly put yourself lost and make herself smaller.

Start to go in. And it's nice. I'm glad that we are in a space where we can enjoy all different types of stories.

I would. I would say weekly but it it really is a weekend binge. I think also We noticed that sam is a bit more higher functioning so it did make full some heartfelt but also some very frustrating murmurs i guess from like a character development point of view because we we want more out of this situation. And i guess because sam. Has you know paved examples. Where he has done that and he is rise to challenge. He's set firm so where expecting it but also we understand that life is a long lifelong journey right. Yeah true because we kind of a thank one of the things that i have to keep in.

The Real Cause of Alzheimers and Dementia
"Wanna jump right in and talk about alzheimer's because you wrote a really interesting instagram post. I think it was a few weeks ago. And you were saying. Alzheimer's reversal is is real. It's not just a theory and you were hinting at a new study. Small one but something exciting. That came across your desk that you wanted to highlight and make your audience aware of so. Why are you excited about the study. And what did they cover inside of there. Well i'm hoping you'll share that study with a link. This is work that i've been aware of actually for quite some time. I know you know dr. Dale br edison and he recently published a book. Called the end of alzheimer's. The plan in the first book was invalid. And this one is the plan and i. I wrote the forward to that book and in that ford. I think it really did capture my excitement about the work that he's doing even be beyond how he's broken the mold beyond alzheimer's and let me explain in a. We live in a world where we try to really pigeonhole are diseases to think that they are caused by one thing and therefore we can fix them with a remedy and there's such an effort underway to Find an alzheimer's drug that works just last month. Eli lilly announced the results of a trial. In which they're monoclonal antibody mab was found to reduce the rate of decline of alzheimer's basis by an astounding thirty two percent When they made that announcement the stock value went up. I think twenty billion dollars. Eli lilly but what does that mean. It means. it's slow the decline by third means. People are still declining going to get worse than we know where it ends up generally So it really wasn't a stabilizing alzheimer's or can you imagine actually improving their situation. Because they're looking at one thing. This is a monoclonal antibody that is targeting the so called beta amyloid protein. That's absolutely the cause of alzheimer's.
Don't Forget the Intangibles of Podcast Advertising
"You know it's so funny. It's i just got into the event. Seen in the circassian had time to start watching the stuff that you were doing right like i was a product manager at megaphone and really started to watch yourself but it's so hard to carve out time in just as a starting to dig more into this injustice. I started to find more time. Everything went digital right. Everything went online rather instead of impersonal bum. Because you run a good show with all the things that you guys do And it's i think it's such an important thing that people watch like soda plug at the beginning like edison research just so many cool things and i think the infantile is one of the most unbiased views of audio than it has a great lens on podcasting and what listeners want and the crazy part about it is like was not easy stuff to do. And sometimes that's not dated like an advertiser campaign wants to do so. You guys built this survey and research company. That is doing the things that we need that we don't always like. We can't always like foot. The bill to the advertiser the things that people should be investing into hand growing because it just helps us all view the landscape. It doesn't push anyone specific narrative. Yeah i mean that's the thing. I'm not a a podcast who dabbles in research. I'm a twenty five year survey researcher. Who loves podcasting. And we've been doing infantile since nineteen ninety eight. It's still. I think the gold standard in terms of the kind of currency research that podcasting looks at streaming audio. It looks at and so on. It's done to the most ridiculous and ridiculously costly standards in survey research it's It's a telephone based survey which has a much much higher response rate than anything online. It's over half mobile phone executed to match statistics in the us about who has mobile phones

Sunny is not is very much a left field choice. He's very much surprise. I think from almost everybody's perspective. I guess it suits in. I think really and truly row madrid's options were relatively limited. Of course they thought they had allegra in and that wasn't the case he went to the event. They thought they had a chance of getting project. Tina of power sanjay man. That's turned out to be very difficult. The contact question. I must confess are not fully. I don't fully understand why that has become a more plausible option for them in angeletti becomes a choice but man they know very well. Amanda will accept some of the difficulties that go coaching around madrid. Who's been there before. Who's been happy about it before as accepted it as well. you know. it's just something to be up to coach at club madrid. I why this is a kind of a comfort choice now. Of course the question mark is for how long. How long does this remain a comfort choice. Whichever one is happy with but for the time being at least this kind of puts out the fires. And i think that's the main the main way to interpret.
A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)
"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

How Ford Made the Worst Car Ever
"Edsel. Ford was born in eighteen ninety three in detroit. He grew up in the motor city before it was the motor city his entire childhood. He had a shotgun seat to watch his father. Henry ford build the automotive empire that shared his name. Big shoes big shoes. The shoes they say about big shoes to fill Edsel seem to share his dad's passions. He grew up tinkering with cars and learning everything. There was to know about engines and design and so looked up to his famous father. But unlike henry ford edsel was a kind man who enjoyed the finer things in life. He was stylish and aristocratic. In contrast to papa henry who famously hated anything frivolous or luxurious having a private chef at your camping trips. Yeah ron christie at your camping trips. Do we have to revisit the sixty-nine square no you don't have to get into him. Sixty nine hundred edison. But it happened one hundred percent for sure henry. Ford did sixty nine with thomas. Edison well for a more substantiate an example. Whenever henry visited edsels house edsel had to hide his fine wine collection. One want your dad to know that you had the good stuff. Do you guys have a wine collection. Not for very long. Yeah i've got a couple of wines. Why way me it was really bad. We're keeping that edsel believe that the ford motor company needed to look towards the future but his father was increasingly obsessed with the past for instance. Anyone who mentioned decommissioning. The model t was fired. Why would you even think about doing that if you're like yeah well at. This point is pretty old car although their relationship was what we might call today. Toxic henry ford still taught us on how to run the company. Henry ford started the ford motor company in nineteen. Oh three and in one thousand nine hundred henry step down and name president of the company
EVs & Infrastructure - Katie Sloan, Southern California Edison
"Drivers do percents of their charging. That's eight zero percent of their charging at home. There are over twenty two thousand charging stations on over sixty six thousand chargers across the united states and counting with more being installed every day. The new electric vehicles have a healthy amount of battery range. Some as much as three hundred fifty miles as i recall and the cars. Frankly are very very cool. I was at the dc. Auto show recently took a ride with a race car driver in an electric volvo sports car. That was way cool. There are electric and hybrid. Suv sedans sports cars et cetera. So what is holding it up. I'd like you to meet a woman who we hope can answer some of these questions kate. Sloan is the director of mobility at southern california edison. I met katie a few months ago at an electric drive transportation association forum. And i knew i had to have you meet her. Katie has been at southern california edison for about seventeen years if i read that right in her linked in profile and his knee deep electric vehicles. She earned her degrees in economics. Which is an interesting angle to approach this from both at her graduate undergraduate and master's degrees from new mexico state university welcome to green connections radio. Katie and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you john. I'm excited to be here. Oh you're welcome you're welcome so you focus on removing the barriers to electric vehicle adoption which assumes there's a big market for these vehicles but since most of us are not even be owners. What's your pitch to own one. That's a great question to start with. And i would say that. Electric vehicles are funded. Drive that is the number one reason that people should be thinking about purchasing them love to share a little story about my own personal experience and that is that my husband has always driven really large. Suv's and trucks his whole life and when we went car shopping a few years ago and we started looking at electric vehicles. I have to say that he was like probably the majority of folks saying that he was not very excited about purchasing an electric vehicle so much so that when we went to test drive one of the cars he refused to sit in the front seat and actually sat in the back with his arms folded

Apple Decides Users Will 'Follow' Rather Than 'Subscribe' To Podcasts
"On this episode of talking about something that apple. Podcasts has just done in a lot of people talking about it. that is you're no longer subscribing to podcast on podcast. You are following podcast. James cridland pod news wrote an interesting article about it. I'm going to read it here because it's very short. Maybe not an article just a few bullet points. Paragraphs follower podcasts apple. Podcast is stop. Using subscribe a small change with big impact no more subscribers podcasting moves to follow exclusive avalon. Cast will no longer use the word subscribe in a few weeks. Listeners will be invited to follow their favorite podcast instead this seemingly small change could dramatically affect the industry. Tom webster from edison research says forty seven percent of people who don't currently listen to podcast that subscribing to a podcast will cost money describing it as a stone shoe of podcast growth run. He tells pod news today. Apple spotify and youtube are the three most widely used services to play podcast and now the word subscribe means automatically downloaded for free. Exactly none of them. Podcasters will have no choice but to adapt their language accordingly or risk confusing listeners. Other podcast apps have already changed spotify. Audible us follow. Stitcher uses plus follow an amazon uses. Heart follow meanwhile google podcasts in cashbox. Us plus subscribe and overcast and castro us subscribe. Here's james opinion. The word subscribes been confusing potential listeners. For more than fifteen years. It's time for every podcast app to copy spotify stitcher apple and amazon by using follow and for every podcast or to follow their lead. The way we talk about podcasts has changed forever and that's probably a good thing. My thoughts on the subject is that words matter. This is why you hear me all the notes from an episode episode notes. They're not show notes. They are episode notes following a music artist on spotify that is different from subscribing to a podcast. When you follow an artist on spotify what happens is maybe get updates. If the artist has a new record maybe if you've got something like the discover weekly playlist or the new release playlist comes out on friday. Maybe you have one of the songs from the artists that you follow within those playlist. So if you're on spotify you're used to hitting that follow button following make sense on spotify. Does it make sense for a podcast app. I don't know maybe we'll in the future to me. Follow lacks the commitment. That subscribe does again. I think that words are important. And i think that it's up to you if you want people to subscribe to your podcast or follow to explain whatever that means.
