"Joining me for another week. Debriefing is my friend and colleague Dr Donna Oreo. Will who is an author in? Speaker and certified sex and relationship therapist in the Washington DC metro area. She's the owner of a nod. Right especially is in working with black women on issues related to color ISM in texture ISM ended impact on mental and sexual health. She's also the author of cocoa butter in hair, grease, a self love journey through hair and skin. This week. She and I chatted about what happened between Molly and Andrew. Tiffany struggles with postpartum depression, and how we might support friends who are struggling. The giant reveal from canola. WHAT'S NEXT FOR EASTBOUND LAWRENCE? And what? We might expect from season five. This episode does include spoilers. Here's our conversation. So we are back. So we've come so far down this road. Do this. We. If you like it took a long time here and also was way too quick. Absolutely you know I mean I. think that we should give another petition going. Maybe we can a forty minute episode I'm just saying okay. With unconventional does a half hour I mean we just just has to be hopeful that we can get an season within the knicks, so so gets cold the Akron and They just don't have to act via zoom. We get all a whole. Noon version of insecurity. So, the title of this week's episode is low key laws, and I feel like that is a great description of how they knew we would all be feeling at the end of this episode. I was just like man lost in two senses. We need all out here, just law. Is. Over the place, so we see it opens up this. This episode opens up with Molly and Andrew. He added a work ethic. Right they a work events. Molly's work event and he has tagged along, and so having conversations, and somebody approaches them about like an after hours spot right, and so it's clear that Andrew is now really interested in going, but Mollie convinced him like okay I'll make it a work thing for you to have them play some of your artist or something like that right so I feel like this was a continuation of what we saw last week. Right like some cracks. In the foundation of the relationship. I'm just saying that predictions made then they happened Okay? Tell me how you fail. But it also seems like he just went along with it right like He. You know he didn't really want to go, but then she kinda convinced him, and then he went along with it. Yeah Yeah. I felt like he was a little bit more resistant to it this time around he was just like. You could tell that he was just is sort of deflated him a little bit He's making that. Sound like all right. I'm Gonna I'm giving you this thing, but I feel it. I feel that I'm giving you this thing and. It was not as obvious exactly. He made it very obvious that he was not happy about making this concession this time and Yeah. Yeah, well, we see very shortly after right that there is a continuation, so they've gone to this after work. Thing I, mean now they give back to the apartment and they want to watch the Pinelli of looking for little you is. We have avoided all those boilers and he's like okay. We finally home. We can watch this because now. We're not on your time. We can do it now and she doesn't want to watch it because she's so tired I feel like this was clearly like the last Straw. You know like there was no more straws to be given that day at all and I. It's funny to me because they got going back to the previous episode with the Block Party and just how it's. Just that that's base of like, are you? Are you here? Are you paying attention to what's going on like? Are you here with me in this moment? Because it doesn't feel like you're here like you're seeing like you're able to take in what is right here right now. She wasn't taking in that he was not like. He's like home on like even like before the block party when she was telling Isa I'm not I'm not asking him to do nothing because I was like all right look, you know she on some shaky grounds. You gotta put in deposits before you can make withdrawal and she didn't recognize that she had no withdrawal power in that moment.
What is a Blanket?
"Listener James Thomson. Referred to in a previous episode. At ask a question that he says is coming from under a blanket composed under a blanket, John. He says what is a blanket if I take a dubuffet from the bed into the living room, does it become a blanket is a blanket that has sleeves still a blanket. What about a giant blanket? Style Hoodie? Yes, I. Do have all of those things. So? What do you think about blankets I when I read this tweet? Sending it from under a blanket that I'm assuming that is A. A British ISM or a think so. Like. You're managing. These huddled entirely underneath it instead of having his head, stick out in his arms. Are In our country. You say you're under a blanket pictured. Oh, covering the entire body including your head like you're hiding. From right, but I'm assuming. Under completely under a blanket. Just tell who knows happening this out right so just a little a little fun there from across the pond, all right Blanket. This is is is another interesting one where we might have, it might be such a general term that can can encompass many different things, but I'll knock some out away the thing with the sleeves and the hood. Not a blanket. Sorry, I mean there's there's a reason we have selling names that you can call it a slang kit you can call. SNUGGIE! Yeah, not great, and it's more of a brand name. But like if you make clothing out of blanket, material does not make the clothing and blanket. Once you've got sleeves and ahead whole, not a blanket you've just made. A blanket, you can make a skirt out of a blanket. You can make a wedding dress out of a blanket, but if I make a three out of Terry cloth, it is not a towel. Yeah, Maria made made outfits for all the kids that have drapes, yeah! Yeah that one that was as you said that one away plying south off your bed, and bringing it into another room. I mean like I. Know You. People don't want to call it a blanket because that's like you know, it's a comforter quilt. Do all sorts of other words for it, but I'M GONNA. Say that all of those things that you put on top of a bed sheets are. Are Blankets of some kind and the other things are just making it more specific, so bring them into or out of the bedroom doesn't change the fact that they're categorically a kind of blanket now. That'd be to that to say. A quilt is not a blanket. How dare you also just from culture? I consider the thing that's laying on top of my bed. That's INNOVA. Cover a blanket. A comforter, but it's, but it's a blanket. It's a kind of blanket. It does a big flat thing that you put on top of yourself to be warm. That's not a sheet it's it's like it. It's a blanket maybe. If. You want to call that fancy I. Don't know why Americans have debate covers, but also. comforters and that are also blankets I. It's complicated, but I consider that a blanket and if I bring it into the living room. It's still blanket because I'm using it to blanket my body with an object. Therefore I keep warm and it's not a sheet because she'd are thin and blankets are thicker in some way whether they're quilted or have stuffing or just made a fuzzy material, remember the seventies blankets with the velvety ends on them. Remember those yes, that woolley material and they had two long strips of velvety stuff. We have a lot of we have a lot of. The those Fuzzy Fleece Fleece blankets that we have. More modern nineties things please bring stuff. I think the dispenses with all James's stuff. He can come out now. Let's get out from under their. It's getting stuffy in there, James, you need some fresh air. Get Out of the blanket
Technology Pioneer Brian Roemmele Discusses Coronavirus' Impact on Voice Technology
"So so I want to ask you Just I guess I'll start with. We'll get into plenty of car stuff but I WANNA I wanna ask you about something which fortunately has not been brought up at many times over the last day or so. In. That is the corona virus. So the sense is that? The time we're in now with this corona virus stuff going on this pandemic. I want to get your thoughts on. The there's a sense of what the intersection between the corona virus and voice technology is. That it's it's a strong intersection, and that voice technology is benefiting greatly from. The need to have contactless touching a button in elevators like Roy by Harav high auto spoke about. The Need. To be able to to speak to things like in an uber like was mentioned as well. I would just like to hear your perspective on what the Corona virus has done to the to either complement or set-back the. Voice Technology Well Brilliant. Question Sir Bradley. You know I I'm a studier of history and and for a lot of my clients, my. Utility I. Think in what I do for them is give them a little bit of a boost of what's above the horizon. What's on the other side and I utilize his? And Future ISM and fuse those two things together. And I studied. Midsummer I started studying the nineteen thousand nine hundred nineteen Pandemic! And there was a reason for that. There was There a conference that was held Virtual Conference and sort of assimilation tell by number of institutions in the medical field bill. Gates that predicted enters videos out there I think it's called plan one or two. And event one zero two. And when I saw that you know I'd always. Have understood that real pandemics not just epidemics you know, look it up the definitions, but not have time to cover that real pandemic are going to impact You know every one hundred years, or so. It's been cyclical pretty much as far back as you can go on history, and there's a lot of reasons for that but I said Okay these folks are very smart. They're planning for a pandemic. This is interesting. You look at the videos. Try Not to get goosebumps because there's a whole lot of things that are being said in videos from August and September That are taking place right now. So I started studying the pandemic and I said well. What was the impact of that event to technology? As a as a general subject, well, the very first thing I noticed and I had not noticed this before and I've studied a lot of history books. From, the subject is communication technology exploded post, pandemic, one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, and these are two technologies. One was an older technology called the telephone. And the other one was a newer technology called radio and or broadcast radio. And what happened was. The impact to people after this pandemic, there was no national news service There was no broadcast radio that anybody was really using and nineteen, eighteen or nineteen, hundred nineteen, there were crystal radio sets in some hobbyists were broadcasting and my latest twitter feed I put up a video showing the. First Broadcast Radio Station, eight K. x out of Pittsburgh area, and that was in nineteen nineteen. So what happened is unity came out of a sort of close setting. where communication was. kind of local and you really didn't need to know about national news. Kinda same today, but we are just junkies for, but we didn't really need to know about national news unless it really had a material impact on our life in our local environment, and that's of course. World War One. People were getting news from that and newspapers. Presidential elections. And maybe some news from former homelands or generational homelands. What's going on in Europe or Africa or Asia or something of those nature of that nature, so the radio exploded? And so the the telephone post pandemic, and it wasn't an accident, because people now wanted to connect in different ways and more meaningful ways, and so there's a psychological repercussion to everything that's going on right now, and everything has gone on the past. You could see cause and

A highly improbable or extraordinary event, development or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences. Greg story is full of miracles, but that's not unique. You know I think.

This was a nice kid from a nice city with private school college degree, and my disease took me on the brink of facing five years in prison, so I would consider myself. A low bottom got an. We'll get into that here in just a minute real quick. If you would just tell us just about you right now, you know where you live. How old you are! What you do for a living married kids hobbies anything like that name's Greg Champion of fifty one years old. I live in Pacific Palisades California which is just a suburb of Los Angeles.

My minor oreos right now so. Comfortable, well, let's get into your story and here in ten minutes or less. Tell us how long you drank cal long it was a problem and why you decided to stop you know. My story begins at four and a half years old. My father was killed in a drunk on your car crash. and I felt different. A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches. And so from four and a half to two nine years old when my mom remarried I definitely feel different. And my alcoholism showed up before you even took a drink. A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were. Being talked to about school counselor colleges to go the Trish. They were going to cal and Stanford and Michigan Texas Nice Schools in my career counselors, talking about trade schools eventually ended up at a trade school. Arizona State University. and as many no, let's Party School and my alcoholism. Just blew up from there I began doing ecstasy lots of cocaine. In I got out into the real world. And light, actually the day I graduated I got my first you is. Six months later I got arrested for assault. In a bar. A few months later. I got arrested twice in twenty four hours in Mardi Gras. And here's the sicknesses disease stretches I was. There Bourbon Street my first night and went up to speak Irish combination. This is new rules what? What can I do and he says don't piston the streets and don't fight and streets. and. So Trish I'm GonNa have you guess what two things I got arrested for? Did you see while you were fighting with somebody or I'm not that multitalented. So the happened I and less than eighteen hours later, I was led out got back on the streets. got drunk and high again it could not find a bathroom, so I decided in the streets and got caught one more time and so. I have a nice arrest record there in the lovely speakeasy of Louisiana got to be the most eventful twenty four hours I've ever heard of by the way, but I don't WanNa. Take, I. Don't want to interrupt too much. Go ahead, but no, it's crazy. I was real resentful for a lot of years that hey you guys took away my Mardi Gras. You guys, you guys room. I buzz. You know for years. Even sober years in a one old-timer pulls me aside goes. Let me tell you how. How God works God put you in those paddy wagons to save your ass. Because what would happen if he would've stayed out there, you would have been stabbed. Shot would hooked up with some girl and probably got S. t you don't know what would happen, but both those times. He puts you in a paddy wagon because he did for you. What you do yourself and it hit me right between the eyes young. He was right. He's absolutely right. Then I went back to the San. Diego Start Working and I had some resentments. I was promised to a high paying job at a college. I. Was only making nineteen thousand dollars a year and I was working overnight, said the TV station. I don't know about you, Trish when I would get out of work at three o'clock am. There's certain people that are out at three am right.

Sincerely hope that you're doing your very best to take really good care of yourself right now in finding even very small ways to tap into your resilience. This past week has definitely been a rough one. And while I consider sharing another episode about racism. The truth is that I'm feeling pretty exhausted. By the continuing brutality, we face, and felt like I needed a little levity this week. Maybe you do to. Dr Donna Oriole will is back with us to debrief on this week's episode of insecure. If you're not familiar. Dr Oreo is an author International Speaker and certified sex and relationship therapist in the Washington. DC Metro area.

Lawrence to be able to have that conversation. How you may know if you need to are ready for a conversation like that with someone from your past. Thoughts on whether this was a closure conversation or brand new start. And our predictions for the rest of the season. Here's our conversation. I am thankful for you joining me again. I, am always. Excited to be invited that. Doing. Yes I, mean, and I know we had a conversation even before we started recording this about how we are feeling in the world. Yeah, it's just it's tough. It's you know there's so many feelings, and funnily enough and I feel like this thing you get when you have wonderful clients I do. They have been asking me back, so we start off every session with feelings. Check in using the feelings chart. And just been like. Give them all to me, and then let's break it down. Let's talk about where it is in the body, but they're just like, but you have to hold on my stuff. And I know I'm not the only person you see the are you don't genuine questions. Being asked in I will not dishonor up and giving them an answer. And, other some people say that it's inappropriate and all that Miranda. Clients, ask I know it's because they actually want to know. sort of rotary questioned that you know like back in the day when we used to get on elevators with people you gotta be. Exactly, for small time, and that's something that I try to remove from clients on day one. So when I ask you how you doing. Tell me fine you to ask me. How do on the like now I? Actually care about what you're. Right so I want the fullness up them on the the rawness its beautiful I want to share that with you. It's ugly I. WanNa. Hold that with you. Whatever it is I want to be there with you in this space. Now I know that they're asking me legit question, so I don us now. Bilas turn like yes. He'll some type of way I kinda? Wish a bitch would. Then in this space. But I'm also grateful that I get the be there with my clients as we move through this together. Yeah, you know I think there is something really powerful about that right because you know of course in our training. Don't make the therapy about you that kind of thing, but that's not what this is right. This is a shared space of humanity, especially given everything happening in the world right now you know so I think it is important that win clients. Ask You our you doing that. It's okay to share. Human's a human without it becoming about you. Exactly. Yeah, it's like hey, all this I. Appreciate Your asking me and checking in, but let's look like. Let's get back to you. Always rerouted right. You've definitely not about me, but they're just certain candidates that I've been examining myself throughout. The ethics of our practices in Raleigh right and in my quest to continue to divest from white supremacy whiteness. Myself and the therapist hired. This is part of the work that we are doing that. I'm just like no. We have to examine the ethics in all none that came my way. Does it actually make sense for the people we serve become songwriting know that mental help industry has historically been white male folk it's. That has been the case then. Chances are the ethics that they let us have. Our white male focused. Driven and driven by capitalism white supremacy. Additional work. Come on with this open in prayer. Come on come on. Yeah absolutely I mean, and I don't think it's any like accident. Right that in our facebook groups right in the black facebook groups with their busy that we will often talk about how our practice looks very different. You know like there are lots of things that we have been taught that we figured out. Don't work for US and don't work for the clients that we serve exactly yeah. Absolutely absolutely so I am thankful for you joining us, you know I know. We had a little bit of a back and forth like. Does it feel okay to do this? Does it feel you know wrong? So like do an insecure recap, but also decided that that happiness, and and you know the the warm hug is how I describe. It felt like we got on Sunday night. was something also be celebrated into? Give people a little bit of a reprieve right that we can continue to focus on the fight, but also have moments where we are being restored and celebrating joy and. And for Black People George seeking joy seeking pleasure seeking peace, all of these things are revolutionary as well. These are not things that have been afforded to black beat, so we do deserve moments where we get to re engage with things that help us to feel good that make us laugh that make us engage in a different way. We can still fight this fight, and we are so fighting this fight, even in the midst of rest, even in the midst of seeking pleasure.

Eradicating Abuse Of Women in Yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
"Hello and welcome back to this episode of the sacred. We import podcast a radically in the abuse of women in Yoga why? Madden's Mottley is back here to talk about her fantastic campaign to meet Yoga's safe place for women with the Yoni shocked he movement. I'M GONNA. Let this one speak for itself. ooh is fantastic. Again is packed with information and all the links we mentioned are in the show notes. If you do want to support this, you do get what a get involved in any way, then you. Can there lots of different ways really fundamentally. This is to make yoga a safe place and to restore as a healing tool. So he goes here is. Mortally welcome back to the PUCK customer. Thank you for inviting me might melanie. Thank you at will honor an oppression to pin here with. So Yoni shock to the movement. Where did it come from Anwar is? This is a great question. Okay, so Yoni Shaquoti literally it means source power, or you could translate it as as count power. It's the power of the life. Force is the name of the I wrote eight years ago and I finished writing at years ago. My intention without book was to liberate the practices of Yoga for women for us to have as freedom practices. You know to to liberate us to support us in our. In our unfolding as within feminine cycles, basically to get a hold of yogurt and. Shake up and let women get access to what we needed. And so that's what I thought would happen when I wrote the book put out, but what's happened is that there were revelations of abuse of women within yoga. Many people are totally unaware of this I. Did know about it when the book was released on Me Admire, editor actually decided I'd written a whole piece and it was censored. We cut it out and it was about some of the beginning revelations of these abuses. Now this was pre me to. It was pre me, too, so that came out, and I wanted to WHO Yoga to change and be wore women friendly woman centric. You know and. It sort of helped, but not enough, and what's happened recently is more and more revelations of come abuses, financial, sexual physical everything you can think of in almost every single yoga school law of Yoga. Yoga training organizations so basically enough is enough Yoni shot team movement. Arose as a way to. Just put a stop to this said that the what we're trying to do is to eradicate yoga. Eradicate Yoga. Sorry, Iraq quite the abuse of women in Yoga, which is an abusive yogurts, well, I think is a it's a freedom tool, so we radical the abuse of women in Yoga, and to reclaim yoga as a tool for. Planetary Healing for justice. I'm for freedom. So, it's a, it's A. It's a co- for Justice in healing. A of women have read. The book stepped up pretty much. Anyone who's ever been a yoga class up. Listen up on entre Israel is raising awareness. Campaign is a movement in the sense that. I'm an educator can really do is is educate so I'm I'm raising propagating a public awareness and there's a crowd funding campaign to raise money. To. Fund public, awareness and education campaign that could run for. For for years. Until everybody knows and will know then then everybody's Saif. I just felt like my daughter isn't going to be safe in those places. Nobody's daughter safe in those places. We all need to know what's going on. And so we can actually reclaim this amazing. Positive Force in the world. From the clutches of the Patriarchy you. Know How it is. That's the plan and when you talk about like the clutches of the Patriarchy I think we all know the obvious sorts of abuse that are out there. Some women are getting raped some being molested abused in different ways, and they said the more obvious ones that women are able to step up to say. Hey, this is happened. It's not a K.. I I need some hail in an. For everyone to band together and support what am interested in talking to you about as well is the subtle ways that the disempowerment of women We moved into practices so that it becomes almost like a grooming process and prep for intrinsic abuse that then unfortunately can, and sometimes does gets passed on from women to other women. Absolutely you have nailed it. I could say that I mean within some organizations as trafficking, Ripe Sexual Assault. It's it's criminal Sex Crimes on. People convicted for them, but what you're describing is what enables abuse to happen how how that happen in a in an organization or a teaching dynamic that supposed to be about liberation. The way it happens is insidious. What can happen is that you have a whole culture? What's it's it's is could by stabbed rhythm. People just stand by a normalized this stuff now. Some people are beneficiaries of this. They benefit from it because they've got proximity to power, so the that procuring the girls for the Gurus on this does happen. They traffic in the mall, everybody Europe and all over the world. So that can happen, so there's that, but this bystander ism is actually the kind of culture that really. Enables this abuse. What happens is even in a situation like when you step into A. A class at run by particular traditional. What have you they line? You'll up like soldiers. You know why Islam Anyway, but they line you all up like sodas and person at the front is telling you what to do. Even if you feel your body, that day is cooling for something different. We've got sense that we go. Go along. You do what you're told. They know best. Is this sense we? Devolve like abdicate our power to the people outside of us because they're the experts, and they know best Annella loin you and correct you. An offer knows alignments and corrections and basic instructions given in this extraordinarily Imbalance kind of way there is no power or Given to the student, none whatsoever you know best, do as you're told. The Guru has the grace to come and correct you. Sometimes, it's very it. Sexual assault happens in clauses. That's what happened in the string of. Over decades I'm people just stood by and let go on, so it was actually normalized a not protest. What that means is that you can be in an environment where really quite abusive things are happening the time the sometimes people are bullied I don't if you've been in Nevada, you know you take the Piss out the I knew all the question. Anybody who says well. This doesn't feel good for me. Because, you're not good enough, or this doesn't feel right to me. Will you don't know any better? Rather than actually giving people power, and saying no listening to your intuitive voice, which is course what we're trying to do? In the the women's empowerment work, you listen to the the the rhythms of your psycho. Listen to how it feels in your body in actually what happens in Yoga is very. Very often the opposite of that, so what you get is a culture where it's perfectly normal for for for a woman, especially a woman Amina because I'm talking about all you know natural rhythmic cycles of our menstruation or of all menopause experiences, and they're kind of overridden. They're all a bit inconvenient in a classroom member. Talking with you about this before you go a pair of Preston and Of Women's buttocks. Just gets in the way so so basically it's kind of inconvenient female, but like it's a privileged for you to learn its practices for Mason that basic idea, which isn't helpful.
"Welcome back to another five minutes in Church history for this episode. I am sitting here with a book in my hand. It is J. Gresham Megan's the origin of Paul's religion. It was first published in nineteen twenty one and that was when it was copyrighted. And this edition. Looks like it's from nineteen twenty five and autographed. It says with warm regards. Day Gresham Megyn October. Six Nine thousand nine hundred twenty seven. He gave it to George Fisher and George Fisher. Meticulously underlined and put in margin notes throughout this whole book. Sometimes you find books with notes and they stop after the first chapter to these notes. Go all the way through. Well that's the particular book but let's talk about this book Paul's religion. This book originated in lectures. In fact. There's a page here at the beginning that says the James Sprint lectures in nineteen eleven Mr James Sprint of Wilmington North Carolina gave to the Trustees of union theological seminary in Virginia. The some of thirty thousand dollars since increased by his generosity to fifty thousand dollars and it goes on to say that the purpose of that money was to set up a lectureship and in nineteen twenty two twenty one the lectures the sprint lectures were given by the Reverend. Dr John Grissom the year before the lectures were given by G Campbell. Morgan from London. The Great London pastor and the year after making the lectures were given by none other than the honorable William Jennings Bryan the nineteen twenty one thousand nine hundred ninety two lectures just three years before Brian would get into that courtroom in Dayton Tennessee. Well let's talk about mentions sprint lectures. He gave it the title the origin of Paul's religion there were actually three views floating around testament scholarship of the origin of Christianity. You see these New Testament scholars. German English turn of the nineteenth into the twentieth century. Made a distinction between the Jesus of the Gospels and the religion of Paul and they saw Jesus as one who talked about behavior ethics and made religion essentially how we live. Paul's the great systematize her and turned all of those systems of behavior into belief codes that you had to believe. And so that was the argument there was the Jesus of the Gospels the religion of Paul. And so where did? Paul's religion come from while German scholar Adolf von Harnack argued. That Paul was not a foundation not building on a foundation of the Gospels but was his own sort of mix off of the gospels. Harnack did not like Paul. He didn't like John Either. He only liked this synoptic gospels and then not even all of them and he certainly didn't like things like the Apostles Creed Harnack said Paul Deified Christ and turned him into somebody that Christ never claimed to be. There was also the German scholar of Rada and he said that Paul founded the Christian religion on certain Jewish elements from the enter testament period. But certainly not from Jesus and then there was another scholar boo set. And he said Oh wasn't founded on Judaism at all. Paul founded his religion on the Greek Pagan religions. Well Megan did not agree with that at all. An in this very scholarly book which was about three hundred pages when it was done. Amazing wanted it to be five hundred pages but the publisher said No. That's too much But in this very scholarly book Mason makes the case that the origin of Paul's religion is from Jesus himself the very end. This is what made us Paulin. Ism was not a philosophy. It was not a set of directions for escape from the misery of the world was not an account of what had always been true on the contrary it was an account of something that had happened and what had happened was the death and resurrection of Jesus. Megan says this he loved me and gave himself for me. There lies the basis of the religion of Paul. There lies the basis of all of Christianity. Well that's Mason on Paul's religion and I'm Steven. Thanks for joining us for five minutes in Church history

Here's our conversation so they definitely gave us a lot who it was a lot this week. Oh Yeah I was like Whoa. Whoa WHOA WHOA. What will be Matha Prasad? I won't so I definitely was taken by surprise also so I think what happened is well first of all like very early in the episode. We realized that the conversation that we saw in the beginning of the season happened even before the blew up. Yes I'll be honest. I was actually relieved because I was like okay. This confident of the season. So that's what you yes yes right. Maybe hoping that would have been a horrible season day. Molly no more like what is. You're not coming back next. Season was right. So we see that she's having this conversation with Nathan Presumably you know after a was there molly. Has You know said. She's not going to help her. Try to find a new headliner for the block party. So we don't know necessarily how she and Nathan started talking again although we did see last episode that he called and said. Hey I heard is coming along. Congratulations and yeah. So we knew he was. Kinda eeking back into the picture but didn't necessarily know that he was gonNA show up again in such a central figure APP. It was like the original ghost shows that after the other chick go sit by condone and this guy in the same day yes so now that you have broken dollah into the conversation. What do we think about it? Honestly what was the purpose of common? Come into the block party. Yeah okay. So she's here but she Watch her do anything. It's not that she needs to have like some real conversation. As a matter of fact I'm just like okay. So did you really just come here? It'd be like yeah me and Lawrence broke up. Well I feel like a part of her coming was to try to make sure that she was salvaging. Her professional relationships right so it sounds like she was the one who brought spotify onboard. And maybe some other people and so it feels like maybe she was doing some damage control. Make sure you know like hey I was the one who signed you up for this and give me show my face right and given that she doesn't know how e- so you know fared after she dropped her she probably was coming to see like okay. Is Everything going to be good so that I can maintain these professional relationships shrew true? I mean it was. It happened so fast I was like you know what almost the yeah. Yeah so she just POPs back up after ghosting Easter. Yes like you said. He kind of a continuation of the goes man. This kind of goes back to our previous conversation from a few episodes ago just about the importance of having difficult conversations. Even if you don't WanNa have them so yes so now. We've seen that ISA has had to try to manage in scramble to replace her head liner into Kinda. Get all of this stuff. Taken care of after condolences drops out on her and boy. What a scrabble it was. Just I like the whole thing. I mean it really. Does this whole season for me. You know communication but my partner jazz just looking at some of those season. One season two seasons three cats. 'cause the let me refresh some things. Coletta thing for Congress on the Internet but I simply do not agree with I was just like Oh my goodness like season one. Isa Confronted Molly about some foolishness. What does she confront her? He should've watched the recap confront her. Because I definitely have been seeing conversations around like well hasn't been that great of a friend either and so I've been trying to remember like what would has done. That has kind of painted her as not a great France. Oh did you see some of that in the recaps? Not Okay actually. Not What I saw. And you know the memories that sparked fires but I watched for the other. Three seasons was mostly that both of them have foolishness with one another. Both of them had expectations. That were unstated for one. Another and that at times that ended up getting in the way of how they wanted to do their friendship at the end of season. I can't even last. It was at the end but in season I think it was one or two ballots. Went with when Easter was still at. We got y'all She confronted Molly. Like what's up with you you you talking a while. Two people I work with. I mean you trip. Was She act? Sir? I'm not avoiding actually wanting to have a conversation and then just how that whole conversation was so left because molly was hurt that he said maybe you could benefit from therapy. That's when we saw that conversation You know and it's reminded reminder like you know you. The common denominator inaugural messed up relationships as you this one. Is this too thirsty to one? After this will not educated the way you need him to be educated like the common denominator is useless. What are you GONNA do about? Even then that conversation really only came up. Because Molly was you know deflecting Become fronted on her poor behavior by ESA and instead took it as an opportunity of well. What about what you do? I'm just that type of stuff that we do. We do that very often when we are not ready to be confronted we WANNA throw it back to something else. That happened and I was just like well. All of these things. They call less like looking back from season one. It makes sense exactly why they're here where they are in season four.
Benjamin Moser: Sontag: Her Life and Work
"A biography of Susan's son tag her life and work which has been A controversial book as if a biography could be controversial but nevertheless this is the way it seems. Now do you think of the controversy that seems to have surrounded this book? Well I think a book about Susan Sontag. That wasn't controversial. Would NOT BE A book about Susan? Contact? I think she's somebody who elicited very heavy very visceral and sometimes violent opinions all through her life and I don't really see controversial this book. I see it more as just I hope something. Starting a conversation about an author that I think is more essential than ever man. Santiago was always associated with fashion. She was associated with With photography she was associated with being on the cover of Vanity Fair and the only possible American intellectual who have been on the cover of Vanity Fair. I think the real writers we actually care about are the ones who go on after their deaths. And who have these chances to be reevaluated? I can remember the first time I read. Susan Sonntags First Book. Which was against interpretation? Can you remember the first time you read against interpretation? Yes yeah I can't because I actually hadn't read it until I started working on this book really. I know I had read the photography stuff mainly and then I had read essays from against interpretation. I think I hadn't read the whole book. I'd read notes on camp. I'd read the title essay. Read some of the film essays but what was really exciting about going back to read. It now is that you see a world you see this time which is quite again. It feels contemporary. But it's almost sixty years old against interpretation but you get this whole Panorama of culture and of ideas. That feels very exciting to me. I have to tell you it was the first of her books that I read. I was astonished by it because of the enormity of range of what she's read I mean just when she makes a list of the books that she thinks of you think Oh i. you'd already read that in the early sixties. She was only in her early thirties to show thirty when that book came out before it became fashionable to event. Artaud Susan cared about our Dole. And in fact you know. She seems to know that the time she's living in as opposed to the time she died in was a time when people new things. I- slivered out some quotes from Susan. Let's hear Susan people want to be moved? Is a writer. Want to move people. I was very moved cried. Even a couple of passages that that I was riding this one line that made me laugh. Grimly where I WANNA say I say but I don't feel it's me I feel. It's the book says It it was a time when knowledge was fashionable. Philistinism was unfashionable. And I wrote that line with a great deal of Glee and grimness because the time we live in as a time in which knowledge is unfashionable and Philistine as it was very fashionable. I'm talking to Benjamin Moser. Sonntags biographer. That what you just heard was the very first time I sat face to face was. Susan was from our first conversation and you consider deeply the subject of knowledge and Philistinism and Susan's almost desire to attack the Philistines. Can you talk to me though? I think it's really funny. I think it's one of the great American questions. I think we're living in a time when Philistinism seems triumphant We don't have to name names. But I think we all know who I'm talking about and I think that there's a kind of feeling that we're always being engulfed by the gold escalator and that all the things that in her lifetime worse symbolic of middle-brow Ism whether it was life magazine in the book of the month club or elevator music. All these kind of things. Santi always stood for the opposite of all that crap. Now you you seem to think she becomes as she lives longer and longer harder and harder on the people around her. Tell me what you mean. Tell me what that use a lot of. It might have had to do with the fact that she was physically. Ill a lot of her life when she was forty two. She got stage four breast cancer and almost killed her and she was subjected to this. Very gruesome and horrifying treatment did end up saving her life. And that's in nineteen seventy five to seventy eight. So she's in her mid forties by then and it seemed to me that something did change in her where she got more impatient. She got more Intolerant of certain people. But I think that it's something that's interesting to try to understand what happens but then not dwell on it too much because what I'm really interested in Santiago and what I think makes her relevant is her writing and her ideas. I think that what we're talking about is the person who wrote in the introduction to against interpretation that we need an erotics of art not a Herman Excite Lard and she writes about her fondness for the supremes. Which at that time you take someone go take number of someone's whether it's Irving Howe or saul bellow listening to the supremes. They find it to be quite a surprise that a highly thought of intellectual is talking about the supremes by the end of her life. She's not talking about the supreme sending more and she's not talking about neurotic sue criticism. No well I think it's very important again to think about how old a lot of this is. This is again. It's almost. It's more than fifty years ago in that time in that me. That was really shocking. And it's absolutely hilarious to see the reactions that she got 'cause the thing about the supreme. It's not like she wrote about this frame. She says something about how she likes. The supreme one line nobody. It followed her her whole life. You Point Down Very well and intelligently and correctly in this book that cultural conservatism is has very little to do with political conservatism.
"You give too much power to government and the answer to much power and they decide they can override this little book called the constitution it becomes a star tarian ism that's why we have this little book of the constitution that's why they stuck in ten amendments and said they're beyond government and they can be taken away from you
Why Was the Mad Hatter Mad?
"To brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. If you've read Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland or seen the movie adaptations the character of the mad. Hatter is bound to have left an impression. He's eccentric to say the least as presides over a rollicking tea party that Alice attends but the idea of being mad as a hatter will in the British sense mad meaning crazy not angry. It didn't come from Carol and if you like. Alice have a tendency to fall down. Rabbit holes this phrase is an interesting one. Carroll's book was published in eighteen sixty five but the Oxford English dictionary puts the earliest known use of mad as a hatter in eighteen twenty nine. That's three and a half decades before any march hare's or dorm. I sipped tea or the Cheshire. Cat made his famous claim of the General Madness of the inhabitants of wonderland. Where all mad here? The actual origin of the phrase mad as a hatter is unknown but it's believed to be connected to mercury poisoning in hat makers several years after Allah's had her first appeared in eighteen. Eighty three the phrase hatters shakes was used to describe the condition caused by mercury poisoning. The symptoms include muscle tremors and mental and behavioral changes. Wonderland's hatter behaves strangely in the novel as do most of the characters but his friend seemed to accept his oddities as being normal today. Mercury poisoning is known to the medical and scientific communities as Eric Ism. The modern list of symptoms include irritability and mania both of which the hatter displays. But there's also sleep disturbances. Depression disturbance hearing loss and those telltale tremors at least the bladder of which the hatter does not seem to have though to be fair. He only appears briefly. You may be glad to learn that. Although short term exposure to Mercury Ken 'cause Earth Ism. It usually goes away if you can avoid further contact with mercury long-term exposure such as that that dental professionals and chemical workers experience can mean the symptoms persist in any case. Eric ISM is a rare disease after the tea party. During the playing card court trial to determine who has stolen the tarts the hatter explains the king that he has no have his own because he sells all of the hats he has which brings us to the last stop in our rabbit hole. A what does mercury have to do with hats? It was part of a process called carrying in order to make felt which is what many hats are made of. You have to get the for of a beaver or rabbit to stick together in a Matt. Thick stiff fabric. A which means you have to get the for off of the skin to get the for off the skin. Cleanly mercuric nitrate was used. It came to be known as caring because the solution would turn the edges of the pelts orange as it dried modern haberdasher use hydrogen peroxide to remove the from the skin which is a slower but much safer process but apparently lose. Carol didn't mean to slander hatters via his tea party.
"This is a movement in theology that began in the eighteen hundreds and came on very strong and the nineteen hundreds. So let's take a look at it where it came from and what it's all about well. The story of dispensationalist begins with John Nelson. Darby he was born in eighteen hundred in Westminster London but his family roots were Irish and so when he came of age to go to college he was sent to Trinity College Dublin. He excelled as a student there and won the classics prize. That skill set would come in very handy for him later. He be involved in translating the Bible. It translate the Bible into German into Dutch and French and even the Complete Bible into English. He had his own translation. Darby would die in eighteen. Eighty two. He's known for two things being one of the early founders and what is called the Plymouth Brethren Church and also being the father or founder of dispensationalist him. This came about in the eighteen thirties. Eighteen forties there may be four significant features dispensationalist them that Darby began and then developed by others. The first is to see a distinction between Israel and the Church prior to dispensationalist them. You could say it was Covenant Theology and there was a connection between Israel and the Church. The understanding was there was one people of God but Darby began with a distinction between those two two peoples of God as it were and so God had a distinct and unique plan for Israel and a distinct and unique plan for the Church. This led to the second feature of dispensational and that is to see scripture as divided into dispensations. Now Darby had seven of them the Scofield Reference Bible. We'll talk about that in a minute. It had seven of them. Dispensationalist were not always agreed on the number of dispensations but they did agree on the concept. That was the idea that God dealt with humanity in different ways as he moved through the dispensations of scripture. So we have the distinction. Between Israel and the Church we have the dispensations the third feature is a literal hermitic that gets applied to prophecy and apocalyptic literature once that literal. Herman is applied. Well that leads us to the fourth feature and that is all of the end times events and charts and you've heard of these events of courses the rapture and that's followed by the seven year tribulation and that's followed by the second coming of Christ and the knots followed by the Millennium and then enter into the eternal state. This of course is using the book of Daniel and the book of revelation applying that little harmonic and seeing this as the literal timetable. For the EN times or for Eschaton Legiti. So those are some of the features that were given to dispensations by John Nelson Darby. Three things helped dispensational ISM get very popular in the twentieth century. The first was the beginning of the Bible Institute Movement Moody had one in Chicago. His was not the first. But it was certainly the flagship institution and these institutions sprung up. All over both the UK and the United States and they taught dispensational. The second thing was prophecy conferences. These were very popular in the early. Nineteen hundreds. They were known a Lake Philadelphia. They were in Dallas Texas. They were everywhere. And then the third thing that popularized dispensational was the scofield reference. Bible named for Cyrus Ingersoll. Scofield who was born in eighteen forty three and died in nineteen twenty one he used the dispensations as the framework to understand the Bible and its structure any applied that dispensational harmonic to texts and it also put forth that dispensational distinction of a separation between Israel and the church. So there you have it. Dispensational SOM started by John Nelson Darby and furthered along by the violence to movement. The prophecy conferences in the Scofield Reference Bible in the Early Twentieth Century.

AA: The Early Years
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eight day at a time in this double story episode the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Stories from the personal stories section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine the seventeenth stories entitled the. Fearful one and the eighteenth is entitled. Truth freed me. These two short stories appeared only in the first edition of the big book. So this may be the first time you hear them both stories paint an extraordinary picture of a in the first few years after bill. W and Dr. Bob. Met well before the big book was written. They recount the critical role of early. A A members who carried the message of recovery to still suffering alcoholics who wanted to get sober and now the original story the fearful one followed immediately by truth freed me the fearful one. When I was twenty one I was taken suddenly. And violently ill and was ill for seven years. As a result of this illness I was left with a porsche nervous system. And a curious phobia as this has a large place in my story. I will try to explain it clearly. After I had been ill for some months I grew strong enough to GET OUT OF DOORS. A little each day but found. I couldn't get farther than the nearest corner. Without becoming totally panic stricken. As soon as I turned back home the panic would vanish. I gradually overcame this particular phase of the trouble by setting myself longer distances to walk each day similarly. I LEARNED LATER TO TAKE SHORT STREETCAR. Rides than longer ones and so forth until I appeared to be doing most of the things other people do daily but the things I did not have to do each day or at least frequently remained unconquered and a source of great but secret embarrassment to me so I went on for years planning always to sidestep the things. I was afraid of but concealing my fear from everyone. Those years of illness were not all total invalid ISM. I made a good living part of the time but was continually falling down and having to get up and start over again. The whole process gave me a licht feeling especially when toward the end of my twenties I had to give up the presidency of a small company which was just turning the corner to real success shortly after this I was successfully operated on and became a physically well man but the surgeon did not remove the phobia that remained with me during the period of my illness. I was not especially interested in liquor. I was not a teetotaler but I was just a social drinker. However when I was about thirty my mother died I went to pieces as I had become very dependent on my parents through my illness when I began to get on my feet again I discovered that whisky was a fine pain. Relief from terrific nervous headaches I had developed long after the headaches were gone however I kept discovering other difficulties for which Whiskey was a grand cure during the ensuing. Ten years I once by sheer willpower remained drive for five weeks. I had many business opportunities during those ten years which although I tried to keep them in. My grasp slipped through my fingers a lovely wife came and went. She tried her best. And our baby's birth put me on my medal for all of six months but after that worse and more of it when my wife took the baby and left. Did I square my shoulders? And go to work to prove to her and to the world that I was a man I did not. I stayed drunk for a solid month. The next two years were simply drawn out process of less and less work and more and more liquor. They ended eventually at the home of a very dear friend whose family were out of town. I had been politely but firmly kicked out of the house where I had been boarding and although I seem to be able to find money to buy drinks with. I couldn't find enough to pay advance room rent anywhere one night. Sure my number was up. I chucked my pride and told this friend a good deal of my situation. He was a man of considerable means and he might have done what many men would have done in such a case. He might've handed me fifty dollars and said that I ought to pull myself together and make a new start. I have thank God more than once that that was just what he did not do instead. He took me out bought me three more drinks. Put me to bed and yanked me. Bodley out of town. The next noon to city two hundred miles away and into the arms of one of the most extraordinary bunch of men in the United States here while in the hospital men with clear is and happy faces came to see me and told me the story of their lives. Some of them were hard to believe. But it didn't take a lot of brain work to see. They had something I could use and it was so simple. The sum and substance of it seemed to be that if I would turn to God. It was very probable that he could do a better job with my life than I had. When I got out of the hospital I was invited to stay in the home of one of these fellows. Here I found myself suddenly and uncontrollably seized with the old panic I was in a strange house in a strange city and fear gripped me. I shut myself in my room. I couldn't sit down. I couldn't stand up. I couldn't lie down. Couldn't Lee because I had nowhere to go and no money to take me any attempt at reasoning accomplish nothing suddenly in this Mellstrom. I grasped at a Straw. Maybe God would help me. Just maybe mind you. I was willing to give him a chance but with considerable doubt. I got down on my knees. Something I hadn't done in thirty years. I asked him if he would let me hand over. All these fears and panic to him. I lay down on the bed and went to sleep like a baby an hour later. I awoke to a new world. I could scarcely credit my senses but that terrible phobia which had wrecked my life for eighteen years was gone utterly gone and in its place was a power and fearlessness which is a bit hard to get accustomed to all that happened nearly six months ago in those six months. A new life has opened before me. It isn't that I have been cured of an ordinarily incurable disease. I have found joy in living. That has nothing to do with money or material success. I know that incomparable happiness. That comes from helping some other fellows get straightened out. Don't get me wrong. We are not a bunch of angels. None of us has any notion of becoming such but we know that we can never go completely back to the old ways because we are traveling upward through service to others and in trying to be honest decent and loving toward the world instead of slipping and sliding around in a life of drinking cheating lying and doing what we like truth freed me in. May Nineteen Thirty. Six after a prolonged period of alcoholism. My friends my associates my superiors and those people who really loved me in spite of embarrassments. Too many to mention finally left me because they had come to the conclusion that I didn't have any idea of doing or trying to do the right thing I was a spineless individual who didn't care a rap for anyone or anything I was hopeless and knew it and then in my extremity the divine comforter truth came to me in a bar room where I had spent the major portion of six weeks the divine comforter in my experience came in the guise of a former drinking companion whom I had assisted home on several occasions because of physical infirmities brought about by alcoholic excess. He had been unable to walk a distance of three blocks to his home unassisted. When I last saw him now he approached me and to my amazement he was sober and appeared greatly improved in physical condition. He induced me to take a ride with him. And as we rode along. Told me of the marvellous thing that had come into his life. He had more than a practical idea of my difficulties. He also had a logical and practical idea as to how they might be overcome.

"Lehrer. And this is my daily politics podcast from WNYC studios. It's Tuesday February eighteen. I don't think you should be able to hide behind Airwaves and huge advise. He has to come on these shows and I also am an advocate for him coming on the debate state. Senator Amy Klobuchar on CNN. On Sunday and the senator will now get her wish as Michael Bloomberg who she was referring to. There has officially qualified for tomorrow night's democratic debate in Nevada by getting over ten percent support in another qualifying poll in fact in the NPR PBS marriage. Poll that put him over the top Bloomberg got nineteen percent among Democrats nationally. Second only to Bernie Sanders. Who got thirty one percent and that rising support for Senator Sanders is a story in? Its own right. We'll talk about that. And the bigger picture of the state of our nation now with President Obama's former White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer who you may know better these days as co host of the very popular podcast Pod Save America Dan. Pfeiffer has a new book called un-trumpian America a plan to make America a democracy again. Dan Thanks for joining us. Welcome to WNYC. Thanks for having me so to not mince words right from the start here and for people who don't know the things you tend to say you see trump ISM as billionaire funded racial Grievance Politics. I have many listeners. Who would say that's been the basis of republicanism their whole lives. So what has trump changed in this regard as you see it other than just stating it explicitly rather than in Euphemisms I think that's exactly right is the mud. Trump has done to politics much what he did real estate. New York which is find a pre existing structure and put his name on it. And I think it's this is the thing I think too many Democrats and a lot of folks just in politics generally are naive about which is that. Trump is not an aberration. He's a logical extension of a Republican Party that goes back decades and he has said the quiet part out loud and I. I believe that he has gone. We'll be dealing with trump ISM long after he walks out of that White House for the last time I read with great with great interest the final pages of your book which were a rant against former house speaker and Mitt. Romney's twenty twelve running mate Paul Ryan who you accused of seeing trump as a way to achieve his cruel policy goals so in the years leading up to trump. Why did you see Paul Ryan s pursuing cruel policy goals? He had a reputation as kind of a Republican policy intellectual for those who listen to parts of America. You know that I I will sometimes end up in a rant about Paul Ryan and when I was writing the book I found myself with writer's block and the maker. The writer's block was to end up writing a very long rant about Paul Ryan and the reason I have perhaps disproportionately strong feelings about the former speaker as I think he represents so much about what it is in the Republican Party. That got us to this moment. Which is advocating A. If he's very cruel policy. That is very quietly nine quietly not so subtly racially divisive trying to as Paul Ryan would say separating the makers the takers Within our economy. And someone who we know from his own words had very low regard for trump became president. He was be called a some things he said textbook example of racism and then once. Donald Trump got an office. He did everything. Donald Trump wanted for him. And that's how we got here. Let me drill down on that example that you just mentioned because people will remember Ryan called out trump for what Ryan called a textbook example of racism. When trump during the two thousand sixteen campaign said a judge could not fairly rule on a case involving trump. Just because the judge was Mexican American. Never Mind that. The judge was born and grew up in. Indiana trump called him Mexican and Ryan called him out But wouldn't you also say that shrinking government programs for the poor the centerpiece of Ryan's politics? That's upsets you was the euphemism of his era for the idea that America is filled with undeserving black people and I'm going to protect our money quote unquote from being taken from by them. A hundred percent. You can draw a direct line from this idea that what is wrong with America is food. Stamps and Medicaid in programs that help the poor to Donald Trump's policies of today and that was what's a well that is like why write about this in the book is that it is it helps we have to understand where donald trump came from and where he came from is from people like Paul Ryan? Paul Ryan's enabling of trump is something that happened. Post two thousand seventeen but what happened but Donald Trump Book Paul Ryan help create Donald Trump long before donald trump came on the scene by Chinese to divide Americans into these categories of as I said makers. And takers sort of hardworking white people in everyone else and yet something is new here with trump is awesome and so just to linger on. Paul Ryan for one more question Do you think that he generally thought they were two tracks here? One thing is racist saying the Mexican judge. Another thing is not racist Not Looking at you know the long Lines of American history that led to the disparities And the programs that he wants to cut. Yes I think that there Paul Ryan and so many. Republicans pre trump wanted was to was to run on a agenda of racial grievance dates back to Nixon and the silent majority the southern strategy to use to sort of weaponized particularly in the modern era the racial backlash to brock presidents to do that yet somehow not cross some proverbial line in their mind. That trump just jumped right over and there's been zero self-reflection the Republican Party about their silence during birtherism the advocacy of these policies and how that's connected to Donald Trump being president today. How do you as someone who worked for? President Obama explained his getting elected and then re elected in the context of the racism. That you're right about. This is something that I've spent some portion of every day since two thousand and sixteen thinking about and it does seem completely discordant that it's possible that a country could not just brock Obama elected overwhelmingly. He's the only president since Eisenhower to get the majority of the vote twice and then follow up our first African president with someone. With a trump with a long history of embracing white supremacy and white supremacists. And I think the best way to understand that is two things one the steps that Republicans took post Obama's election to make it harder for people of color to vote in this country gerrymandering voter suppression Cutting the voting rights act and a long history of racial progress being followed by backlash. And I think when you read a lot of the histories of what happened After and after the passage of Voting Rights Act. This is in that line and I think a lot of US myself included Were naive to the fact that that was a possibility. Post Obama you write about the media in your book centrally. A section called facebook plus Fox equals eft and use a whole word. Facebook plus Fox equals aft- explained. I think it is important to understand that there is a direction to between how we got trump and what is happening in the media in this country in too often. Progressives blame traditional media like if only the New York Times wrote this different headline or so and so did something else or wide. Cnn put Donald Trump on what you know. Why do we carry the the empty podium live during all those things are legitimate criticisms and I have often been someone who has intemperately tweeted about those things. But there's a larger structural structural impediment to progressive messaging which is the primary driver of media economics and social conversations countries facebook in facebook for all of the conservative claims about tech bias is towards Democrats in Silicon Valley and all the Democrats who run up. His facebook is a pro conservative platform and it. This is not just the policy decisions. They've made to allow trump's campaign to run allies. It is that the algorithm that powers what content people see is one that responds to outrage and outrage is the coin of the realm in trump politics and benefits republicans which is why whenever you see the list of stories. They're getting the most traction on facebook always from conservative outlets not parole ballots. You don't think there's enough outrage and Progressive America these days to balance that out it not in the way. Facebook works right is just simply not how we speak. It's not these political strategies we employ and it is off it is. It is essentially the weaponization of outreach. By folks like Ben Shapiro Fox News Fox Fox News and a whole Plethora of pro-trump Sites. That are. They're pushing the conversation in this country to the right and part of that analysis that I found really interesting in your book is that you see a dwindling difference. Between the things the beltway insiders tend to obsess over. And what the general electorate cares about driven by Fox and facebook. And you talk about that for much of the first few years Obama's in the White House's first term we would always be in this situation where you're in the White House and feels like you're under constant fire and CNN's during this segment and Politicos writing the story and you'd like it feels like the whole country is obsessed with whatever the political crisis is yours and then you go out and talk voters which we would. Do you know through the Obama campaign and find out. They have no idea what we're talking about living very separate lives. They're watching local news. The reading the local newspaper. They're not main lining political contest so you mean. Republicans driven Republican driven scandal narratives like Benghazi or the IRS scandal. Things like that. Yeah weren't registering at first. Those types of scandals in the first term did not register whether people thought Obama Golf too much. Or you know some you know malfeasance here or something. Someone tweeted or something like that. That wasn't a problem in the second term. All the sudden you know we were shocked to find this. We would go out and talk regular voters and they would know exactly all of these scandals because facebook had reached a tipping point and was now pushing these narratives into their fee. The the ability to turn politics on and off had gone away and because conservatives were at the forefront both in terms of thinking about this and had the benefit the benefit of pushing on the open door facebook algorithm then we were seeing not just that they were learning about these things. They were learning about the from a conservative frame. How do you see? How do you explain impeachment and trump Ukraine in that context though even Democratic primary voters seemed to have largely tuned impeachment out as irrelevant to them and almost solely brought up kitchen table issues to the Democratic primary candidates on the stump these recent months according to every report who I've interviewed? Well that is definitely true that that's how Democratic primary electric particularly in Iowa New Hampshire are had been thinking about it. You know positive. America did a poll of Wisconsin in Arizona. Right about the time. These stories broke and we found in that poll that ninety one percent of voters not Democrats. All voters in the states. Were following that story very closely..

We are so happy to have. Damian Sarah Fixing strategist focused on the emerging markets for Bloomberg Intelligence and I WANNA look first at Argentina because it's one hundred year bonds that were sold a couple years ago trading at forty three cents on the dollar trading apart not so long ago. What is the implication here. I think you WanNa talk about Argentina because I just returned from Buenos Aires last week. So let's talk about Argentina. Argentina and I've met with a bunch of people on the ground and it's certainly the fleeting sentiment down there but three hundred fifty billion dollars of debt outstanding of which two hundred sixty billion dollars is in hard currency so they will have to undergo a major restructuring. I mean this isn't just going to be a reprofiling maturity such as they've led us to believe this is going to be led by the IMF which by the way forty four billion dollars of that hard currency debt is owed to the IMF breath and so there's going to be a lot of interplay there I mean certainly with regard moving to the Kristalina Georgieva ascending to the head of the IMF. She's a Bulgarian economists. The Bulgaria was bailed out by the back in nineteen ninety eight but really you have to look back to nineteen ninety eight to know why Argentina's in the current situation it's in a Lisa and the fact remains remains. They've got a lot of debt outstanding. They need short term relief. It's going to be led by the IMF and how your Kiva and whoever's in office after the elections on the twenty only seven is you know however they play and however those negotiations go we can only hope from the perspective of an external us creditor that they go smoothly and then they go quite frankly quite quickly quickly because in addition to the bonds that are outstanding. There's also CDs twenty nine billion notional of outstanding of which five billion is net not not gross no-show outstanding so someone's going to have to eat that loss if indeed money changes hands and there's a CBS trigger which is hit so you know. There's a lot to look at. I mean certainly I mean but but you know just looking back at what's in the best interest of Argentina. You know if before my trip down there last week I would have said you know. Most people would have thought that you know Fernandez Kirshner government would have been deemed bad for the market. I don't think you can make that claim anymore. I mean certainly some of the capital controls. All capital controls are bad but the macree administration some some of the capital controls. They just put into place. I mean basically what they did was they. They they basically wouldn't let local peso-denominated money market funds which which are holding the salaries for local workers basically payback that money so corporates local corporates who are using money market stash their cash couldn't access it to pay salaries last month because of a lot of these capital controls so I mean McRae's not well loved locally on the ground and certainly that was probably a very hasty and cumbersome move in my opinion. So what's the what what would it be a quick quick resolution here. What kind of timing are we looking for. I mean most I am. You know kind of negotiations probably take about six months so anything before that would be very very quick because this is saved very very complicated restructuring needs to take place. I mean you know Paul. I mean we have marketable and Nog marketable debt. We have hard currency and local currency debt. We have different creditors. We Have Pars we have disclosed Boehner's leaks. I mean we have so many different structures that form that stack that the kind of go through it all and kind of I mean different covenants different. it just so much stuff that you need to go through but the good thing is you do have collective action clauses and most of the foreign law debt so they should be able to kind of push things forward a little bit more quickly than we've. We've seen in the past just a minute. I'm wondering how representative is Argentina of other potential potholes in emerging markets Argentina's very unique. I mean this has been going on for years. I I mean they've defaulted twice. In the last twenty years. Already I mean again a lot of the started with with with in one thousand nine hundred when Russia defaulted on its debt and basically that pushed the great recession into Latin America if if you look at how to Brazil emerged from that and there was a similar politician that was actually running under a very populist platform in Brazil Leno to and that was Lula and so- Lula which was the market thought he would be very market unfriendly going into office actually wound up being very friendly in terms of market and actually you know the economy look at where it is now relative to our chief. We're at once was you can only hope that Alberto Fernandez might kind of fit into that category I mean the verdict is still out because he's not saying anything until he's elected and we don't know what was cabinets. It's GonNa be comprised of but I think that's going to be really key. After the election. WHO DOES HE PICK TO BE IN HIS CABINET FROM AN ECONOMICS PERSPECTIVE. That is the most important thing that we're looking at right now. Paul all right. We'll have you you back on to give us some color as this plays out big big numbers for Argentina hopefully a sooner or later they get a resolution there at Sas our chief emerging markets credit strategist joining us in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studio..
"ism" Discussed on P&L With Pimm Fox and Lisa Abramowicz
"This is beyond manufacturing telling us here you'll initially at Ya Nursing Darcy senior US economist Bloomberg Economics joining us in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studio. How concerned should we be so today's numbers are a a clear sign that worries you know that we saw in the manufacturing sector spreading beyond into broader economic activity however however I would caution against you know saying okay. This is a recession signal. It's not the sexy still exp expanding. Although a slower pace you know I think this kind of number is comparable to what happened back in two thousand sixteen remember title when China devaluation and market route on the back of it and that affected business sentiment to quite a significant degree but we were talking about recession so we're not talking about the recession. Now we think the probability still remains relatively low Yelena when we saw the manufacturing side of the economy turn negative actually into contraction. I think a lot of people felt like it was primarily driven by uncertainties associated with the trade tensions is that you think that's also impacting the service society economy as well sure so. If you read some comments you know not only look at the numbers but if if you read the comments in the actual is report there's a lot of discussion all across the manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries about well how tariffs are impacting the businesses so but what I found very interesting in today's report actually that some some people are talking about how they substituting how they are working to substitute some imports from China with imports from other countries so I think eventually early this will work and we will be just okay but right now. He's just creating a lot of uncertainty so how much of a concern to sort of raise ahead of tomorrow's tomorrow's jobs number. I think it's a significant indicator you know along with other labor market indicators. I think it's telling US yes. We will see another relatively weak number but again not something that will be able to push their employment rate higher in fact we expect the unemployment rate to go down by tends to three point six percent so a one thirty five thousand number that we are forecasting sting would be just enough to do that so given that we are starting to see a little bit of weakness creep into the consumer the services side. I'm uh-huh and we'll certainly wait for the jobs data tomorrow. How do you think the Fed will react for the remainder of this year interesting you mention that because we already heard eh today after the weakest Sam Number and you know other indicators we heard from Charlie Evans overnight he was speaking in Madrid and he actually said that he's still not convinced they need to act at the Toba meeting. He thinks that fundamentals else remained solid but I think if we continue to get weak data like we did today especially unemployment rate report. This will push the feds and at the end of the month. Let's say there are some optimists out there saying. Let's buy this dip. We think that the market's going to turn around and that either the federal come in with stimulus or We'll see strength somewhere else. Where in the economy could we see strength well. You know it's it's the consumer we've been talking about about it for quite some time right so it doesn't this directly feed into consumer spending and isn't consumer spending essentially lagging indicator at employment kind of precedes that it it depends on how much wages grow okay and how much will consumers feel optimistic about the outlook and will they spend ended so we are heading into a holiday season pretty soon so we'll see how that plays out so like early indicate us as saying that the holiday season will be a good Colin Lane. Are you guys at Bloomberg Economics in the camp that there could be a recession in two thousand twenty or maybe just more like the new normal which might be one and a half to two percent growth and that might be kind of what we have so we don't see recession within the next twelve months within the AH probabilities relatively low just stop published some research actually our recession indicator is at twenty five percent for the next twelve months and we think that we will see a significant slowdown in the second half of the year two something like one point eight percent on average from two point six percent in the first half of the year but that by no means means recession is coming. I'm just trying to understand going forward. It seems like the market is saying the Federal Reserve will cut rates. It'll be insufficient to fuel economic growth real quick that accurate. I think it is I think you know. The market is thinking the Fed might not have enough ammunition to act. They will obviously do what they can but this might require wires some sort of a fiscal stimulus the chances. I don't know I cannot talk about the chances of that but it seems like that's what we need. At this point Yuliana Elena Sheila David. Thank you so much senior economist for Bloomberg Economics joining us here in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studio.
"ism" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Robert divulge to me, the wisdom of the great Confucius as it concerns, utensil etiquette. Yes, this is this is interesting because this is where we find the connection between the great Chinese teacher politician. And philosopher Confucius. And chopsticks his teachings, however, would only come to, to widely influence Chinese rule, and culture after his death, but his teachings did spread, and it seems so to desiging on eating utensils, he champion blunt, chopsticks over the use of knives. And is quoted as having believed that quote the honorable and upright man keeps well away from both the slaughterhouse and the kitchen, and he allows no knives at his table, perhaps due in part as well to Buddhist influence. One sees meet us more for flavor flavoring, you know, the broth flavoring vegetables by around the first century. This is really interesting because the thoughts of Confucius here, actually remind me of something I read, here's ago about chopsticks that has been lodged in my brain ever since, and I think it might be part of my love relationship with chopsticks always looking for an excuse to use them. They feel morally good to me like something about using chopsticks isn't just aesthetically pleasing feels virtuous. I know that sounds quite silly. But I think one origin of this association in my mind is when I was in college, I read a book called impair of signs by the French critic in simulation role on Barth. It was first published in nineteen seventy and then in English translation by Richard Howard in the early nineteen eighties. And it's kind of a symbiotic travelogue of Japan and I honestly I don't think I'd actually vouch for Barth this very good. Observer of other cultures in general even for his time. And I think you could argue that there are traces of kind of oriental ISM and his thoughts about Asia. Apparently he was somewhat dismissive of the value of studying Chinese culture. But I read this book, many years ago, and thoughts about chopsticks alw-. Stuck with me as kind of more interesting, and perhaps more valid than a lot of the rest. So here's some of what he says about chopsticks, and this is a abridged selections from his book empire signs, quote, the instrument, never pierces cuts or slits never wounds, but only select turns shifts for the chopsticks in order to divide must separate part peck, instead of cutting and piercing in the manner of our implements. They never violate the food stuff either. They gradually unravel it in the case of vegetables or else. Prod it into separate pieces in the case of fish heels, thereby rediscovering the natural fissures of the substance, he also writes by chopsticks food becomes no longer apprai- to which one does violence meet flesh over which one does battle, but a substance harmoniously transferred in. Then he says, finally people who use chopsticks to eat maternal. They tirelessly performed the gesture, which creates the mouthful leaving to our elementary manners, armed with pikes and knives. That of predation. Oh, well that's beautiful. I like that. Comparison, it somehow rings true to me. I mean it may be an over generalization of the differences between the two eating cultures. You know, Europeans four connive culture on one hand and, and Japanese chopstick culture on the other hand, but I really feel like there's something something to what he's saying about the fact that, when eating with chopsticks one does not make artificial cuts in the meat error in, in the food in general, as it is presented to you. It's you know, it might have been cut already in the preparation, but any separations of the foodstuffs happen along natural lines of separation. So I can think about, like if you have a, you know, stir fried, little head of baby BOK Choy on your plate. And you're eating with chopsticks the leaves come away whole as you peel them off or nor. Yeah. The fish flakes, along the natural lines of its muscles. Bok choy. I'm more inclined to try and grab the whole thing with the six and shove it into my mouth, which is an important point to make here we talk a lot about the precision of the chopsticks, and maybe the brutal aspects of fort knife spoon. But I we do need to remind everyone that you can still eat like an utter slob while using shot sticks. It's well within within range for for, for for human behavior. Oh, yeah. I would often say, even when you observe Chinese people eating, they often will say bring the bowl up to near their face, as the chopsticks, and there's kind of like this beautiful shoveling action that, that I think, I think it might be I don't know what's actually etiquette. And what's not? I mean, I feel like western tradition would say you don't hold the bowl up near your face. Well gets into sometimes you hear it put forth, that it's okay to slurp like slurping the soup in, in, in certain eastern traditions is a compliment to the chef that sort of thing, actually did have the experience of getting noodles, at a at a Chinese noodle shop in this was in Honolulu. I think. Who's predominantly Chinese clientele? And I was trying to eat consume the, the noodles carefully. And, and there was actually an older woman, there, a Chinese woman who turned to me and basically, let me know it's okay to slurp. It's okay to bring the bowl up to your face. This is this is. All right. That's beautiful. But anyway, back to Confucius into bars in both cases there seems to be, there's this idea that the method we used to get food from the played into our mouths does have some kind of psychological conditioning effect. And I, I can't cite research to say that this is definitely true. But it certainly feels true, it at least it seems to make plausible sense. And I feel it myself when I'm eating I feel a different kind of affect on my mind when I eat with chopsticks versus when I cut with a fork, and knife for me. Four can knife feels more MC. Artificial in architectural, and chopsticks. Feel more organic and related to the, the forms of the natural world. Again, they are more like the extensions of your skeleton. Yeah. But it also as we were saying coincides with differences in, in common preparation methods in say many European traditions of cooking versus East Asian traditions of cooking where very often though not always very often. In say Chinese cooking ingredients are sliced or cut up in advance. Yeah. In this, we come back to that idea that is scarce resources and a growing population in China demanded that smaller portions of food, cooked faster over less fuel, thus chopsticks are an ideal way to consume the finish dishes. Well, though, one of the points that weighing makes in his book is technically a number of key advantages to cooking food. We've touched on and stuff to blow your mind before it is the external. Was Asian of digestion in many respects in terms of like eating with your fingers though. He weighing summarizes in his book, again, chopsticks cultural and culinary history that we see the shift from fingers to utensils between five hundred thousand BC. And then we see spoons and chopsticks uses an in a stab list set of eating tools in China between three hundred six hundred see so at this, this is the point where it becomes clear that if you're going to eat, you're probably gonna need that spend because there are going to continue to be soups and broths and whatnot. But on the other side of the plate you're going to want those top sticks because that is going to be how you're gonna consume all of these finer pieces..

I bet you think he would laugh. I think that he would sit there and send at its core for what the hell you're trying to say, which is I, I don't know. No, I mean, I think he would laugh at it because it is the it's the I think the simple it's, it's a over very absurdly over simplified way of making that point. And that's the that is the but that's the absurdity that comes along with believing that, that you could sustain something like that, that long term, we can sustain this kind of spending that we can sustain that we can sustain the nurturing and creation of generation after generation to believe that they are born with the right to other people's property. That's, that's what it is at its core. I don't know how long ago it was. But I said, you know, the entitled mentality this goes beyond entitlement. They believe that they're born with this, what twelve thirteen years ago, I said that beyond. Yeah. It's not saying, hey, you know, I'm here now. And no, it's they in their mind. It's there's. At somebody else's property. Somebody else's wealth, somebody else, the result, the fruits of somebody else's labor is there and belongs to them at that moment. That is exactly where we are. And we had brought this up earlier sexual we had actually had some pretty good topics here we, we discuss a catcher Cortez, said that the right to own a the, the right to own a good home, the right to a home supersedes the privilege of making a profit. Right. And we said when you break that down that is horrifying. If if you want, if you're wanting to third, an authoritarian statement that scare the daylights out of every American. It's when she said that now it sounds fine. Doesn't it? Oh. You, you hear it? You say, oh, yes, the right to own a home supercedes privilege as, if think about this. She's saying that it is something that government hands out that it's a privilege for you to work, your posterior off and earn. Earn money. That is a privilege that, that government can hand to you or take away from you that you're right to work hard to work, your tail off to earn money. Is a privilege that government gives you, you want to be horrified by a statement and you wanna talk about a statement that ekes of totalitarian. Authorities a -tarian philosophy of fascist philosophy. When somebody actually believes that government. Hands out the privilege of you working hard to earn money. Which means they can take it away from you whenever they want. Yes. That is frightening. That's the most that's the most frightening thing. She's ever said. She said some frightening things. She said at this week, I think at five past a lot of people because it sounds harmless. When you say until you break it down you break it down. It's horrifying. It's because we allow it.

"Not just absenteeism, but present t ISM. What's that means? You are at work you showed up your present. But that's about it. You're not doing any work. Presently ISM is as costly to an employer as absenteeism. According to this research, twenty one hundred bucks per year per employee is what absenteeism and present he is cost your employer. And if the employer is spending twenty one hundred bucks a year per employee on these costs that's twenty one hundred bucks a year. They can't give you in pay and benefits because they have to spend the money. Elsewhere. And here's the worst part forty-one percent say their stress level related to money has increased over the last twelve months has yours. I mean, we've got a stock market that's been rising and economy that's been growing unemployment that's been falling wage growth that's been rising. And yet four out of ten Americans say their stress level is up compared to a year ago. So if yours is up if your financial stress level is up one good news. Your employer is probably aware of it and working on doing something about it to help you. Because of it helps you it helps them right? You're less likely to quit your job, you're less likely to underperform at work. It helps your employer for you to be financially good shape number to do something about it. If what you've been doing ain't working don't keep doing it change your habits. Adapt a different style or a behavior that is more productive than negative.

"Well, I. I think I see it. But obviously, we never did a study, but what happens with patients with Parkinson's disease as they also lose balance. So they start being afraid to get out and get around too much. And Furthermore, even before that occurs as the disease progresses, they they tend to be inclined to just become slothful Bill just wanna sit all the time. You know, and it's just not so easy to walk around keep your balance and keep from falling. And the other thing is they just don't seem to feel like they can move around. So I think this is a great study. And I believe that people who have early Parkinson's disease, they may not be able to turn the disease around. But if you can put off these horrible symptoms for four or five years, right because you're doing more exercise, and maybe it isn't running and walking. Maybe it's a bike. Or maybe it's swimming. Maybe a swimming with somebody, you know, so you can make sure you can get out of the pool or if you had trouble you had somebody there to help you. But how we're walking for instance. Yeah. Something like that. Sure. Those are things that could help. But I think it's not the rule, I think most people with Parkinson's. Parkinson ISM, even from the onset, become more and more laid back and do less talk to me about the medication. Sometimes when someone who has Parkinson's we have a friend here in the what your area who unfortunately has been diagnosed on that is that a lot of meds. Dr g is at a la- are they over their meds that really take their energy down or not so much. Well, there are meds. The help relieve the shaking, okay. And you know, the rigidity that you see with Parkinson ISM, but they may also had the side effect of causing tiredness and fatigue, and maybe sometimes trouble sleeping, and that sort of thing. But these drugs may be helpful and delaying the progression of disease. Do not cure Parkinson's. Right and Parkinson ISM is just a scary really to me tragic thing because it strikes a lot of people who are athletes are real active people that you know, you, and I know. And have been around a lot and suddenly they're just taken out of the scene. And then the next time you see them. They're just sitting bobbing back and forth and very sad. Yeah. Really something that you just hope you never get. Yeah. This is something I never thought. I've also heard on a survey cheese is good for your heart. Doctor g and I were just talking about this during the break. But here's the survey a little cheese every day might help heart disease. Go away. The new York Daily News says a recent analysis of more than two hundred thousand people show that those who ate a little bit of cheese every day were less likely to develop heart disease compared to those who rarely or never ate it at all the research from China and the Netherlands examined data compiled from fifteen previous studies where most of the participants were tracked for the last ten years over all those who ate more cheese had a fourteen percent lower risk of developing heart disease, and we're ten percent less likely to have a stroke, then they're cheese adverse. Peers dr. I this is kind of funny for me. Because when I was at the university of Minnesota, we used to always look at these people who got shipped in from Wisconsin. Because the first thing our nurses would say, Yup. It's a lot of chief. We would tell patients donate. No more don't eat meat. You know, eighty dollars sugar you want. You know, eat all the starches you want it. Now. Of course, we've learned that. It's really it's really the carbohydrates that kill you much less much more. So than the fact that you get in your diet, and you know, the risk we always thought existed with cheese was the fat the fat and the cheese and dairy fat. You know, so I don't know. I mean, what is a little bit of cheese too. I mean is that like a square is that like one square or is that like a one little glob? I don't know. But I I I think that it's interesting study, and, you know, anything done by the Chinese I worry about in terms of validity. But they did this in conjunction with researchers from the Netherlands. So these are is probably pretty good. Scientists who looked at this big number of people. But the interesting thing to me is that. All the time. I was growing up in medicine. We looked up on Wisconsin as a state full of dairy products. Right. Full of heart attacks, heart attacks into Wisconsin. We're going to be rich. Yeah. Right. But but the thing about it is they also had a high incidence of obesity. Sure. And I don't know whether it was the dairy products are just the fact that they live in a colder climate and then get out and do as much, but I don't even know if that's true today. Some of those northern states like Minnesota, and Wisconsin boy, they've come on strong with all kinds of exercise programs indoor facilities abound. The winter weather is no excuse for not exercise. Really not it really anyone know if you can walk. You can walk in your house. I had this one patient one time I said, well, I walk a mile a day. And I said that's great nieces and all kinds of weather. Hot cold rain. I don't care and I said, well, that's good. How do you do that? And he says, well, I have a pretty small house. But he said I can just walk around my living room one hundred times, and I'll get a mile in. Wow. And I said that's pretty clever. You know, he said, Yep. I used to drive to shopping mall. And he said, I got tired of it said, I felt I always had a brush my hair clean up before. I went there. You can do it in his jammies. Yeah. He said now, I just get out. I just do that same amount of walking my own house, and it ain't big now. Right. Okay. We'll cheer you on for that one. But exercise one of the common themes here is almost anything that you encounter shows exercise helps you less diabetes, less heart attacks, less obesity. Maybe helping prevent Parkinson ISM are slow it down. I can't think of a reason not exercise keep it. Keep it moving. Yeah. Absolutely. Keep it moving to do. We also have a list of thanksgiving movies. And we thought we would leave you with a little bit of this today. This is a list from net flicks. And these are films that feature thanksgiving celebrations. One has a Wichita tie that you're gonna love the made the list outta here that celebrations and that makes them feel more grateful about spending time with their own families during the holidays and some of these titles. I'm not sure I hear these titles and I want wild. That's interesting. So here's the number eight seven six we'll go top eight eight again thanksgiving themed movies. The house of. Yes. Seven hannah. And her sisters not sure that is six the ice storm. That's when people kinda got snowed in they. They realized okay. I'm writing that one. I do love my family. Now, we knew they got snowed in on that one. Five pieces of April four is one of my top two movies of all time. Al Pacino in scent of a woman. Oh boy. Yeah. Yeah. Don't you love what a great great so forth scent of a woman, and what he did there and want to what was it barred university? I gotta don't you. How he stood up for that kid? Yeah. I will replay that again. And again, that's the great movies and a great. That's the only great movie. I see so far so gone. Okay. Here we go. What else we got a three is home for the holidays has thanksgiving on that? Number two is Nobody's Fool. I can't pull that up out. I can't. But here's the one that is number one on the list, and I absolutely love planes, trains and automobile. With John candy Steve Martin. And I'll never forget the one line. You mean, we are stuck in Wichita? He says we're stuck in Wichita. He says that is the number one movie for thanksgiving when it comes to feeling grateful about about that. And I can't stop laughing just thinking. Stuck in Wichita? Happen and they had to share a hotel. They hit a deer. They all that other good stuff. But John candy and Steve Martin number one on planes trains, allow mobiles. Oh, great. That was a funny movie. And I, you know, they're not too many movies where Wichita name comes up. Thank you. Yeah. But that was one not not perhaps the most complementary way. But certainly it was a Larry the other thing. I think we need to mention a little bit too is this is one of those weekends. What holiday travel is risque? Unfortunately, we're gonna come back from this coming Thursday where they keep score of how many people were going to lose their lives in automobile accidents in the state of Kansas. Dr Giovanni talked a lot about that in making sure your take your time. You drive at the right times of ours. You take safety, right? Oh boy. I I mean, this is where many people get hurt and get killed and one of the big hazards of driving at this time of the year on our highways is actually hitting a deer. And so it's more risky. If you drive at night there hanging around out there more at night than they are. The day. So I I tell people often. Also, they come out in the morning. You know, so if you leave a little bit later, and you're going to drive a long ways to try to make it middle of the day and quit before the sunsets. Sure. But you know, that's just one part of it. You can hit a deer at noon. You know, there's no question. That's true. But also, you know, people don't usually get killed hitting a deer. It's hitting each other and having terrible wrecks and turning in their cars over on the ice and things like that. And it just it's a time of the year. When I think the main reason for the increase in Rex's, they're more cars on the road, and people are eating more, and they're probably talking more, and they're also drinking more drinking more. Yeah. And alcohol is just deadly. When it comes to driving. Here's from the CDC this morning in the United States. This just blows me away, the stat motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people one to fifty four and about forty thousand people will killed in crashes forty thousand in. Olive 2017. Yeah. I believe that. But you know, what's catching up with that is opioid overdose. It's coming. They are it's gradually becoming catching up with car accidents as far as cause of death. Yeah. Yeah. Just tens of thousands of people around the country crying dying. Yeah. My sister-in-law works in New York City. Her job was working for the health department.
