Masks, Covid & Nutrition Highlights
"Hey thanks for listening I'm your host, Samantha Leigh Right today, we have a slightly different kinds of episode coming your way in light of all of the things happening with covid nineteen. I, wanted to do a special episode highlighting the foundations of Health for you all focused around the corona virus really wanted to cover the topic of mask specifically because there's so many questions that people have centered around mask right now and I know that I, personally have been wanting some clarity around. How mask are effective why are people saying sometimes, they're not and what the debate on both sides, and then also specifically, what else can we be doing in our lives to boost our immune systems protect ourselves from the scary seaward that's going around right now. So today's episode unlike most of our shows don't focus a lot around the topic of central oils but I really wanted the opportunity to talk to Dr Furman whose work I really admire if you're not familiar with his work. I think you're really going to like what he has to say. So we'll get to that interview soon. But first, let's talk about essential oils for a little while I wanted to share my favorite oils from this past week. Am that has been the thieves chest rub? That is a fairly new product coming from young living right now, if you haven't experienced it yet, it is a chest rub formula that comes in this great little squeeze bottle where you don't have to get your hands all greasy to apply it, which is one of my favorite things about it. So if you WANNA check it out or if you want to try to make your own version of it, you could. Buy One of those empties kind of squirt bottles from Amazon or wherever, or just use like an old squirt bottle. You've got lying around anything that will allow you to fill your own formula of stuff and then squeeze a little bit of the top will do and it is a combination of eucalyptus essential oil menthol and camphor. As you might be able to hear, I've got a little bit of flim stuck down in my chest and I've been putting the thieves chester up on at night especially at night. When you lay down, you've got that extra kind of weight of gravity and that's when when the cough likes to come out. So putting the chest rub on is so soothing. It smells so good. Now, if you WANNA make your own kind of chest rub concoction than I would use a base of coconut oil and maybe even some CA- cow butter or and or beeswax shaving shaven down because what you want is a real thick carrier oil base for this because you don't want the oil soak into your chest and your skin too. Quickly, you wanted to act as sort of an on going vapor that's going to be releasing from that chest rub so you WANNA thick carrier oil base again, beeswax is great for that. If you have some of that, you can shave it down and melted a bit and then from there do a real strong concoction if. You're making a small batch may be twenty to thirty drops of an essential oil nice and strong of mainly Eucalyptus. That's the Go-to for all things respiratory. So whatever eucalyptus oils you have around or blends of our great. If you want to add some other things in there to support your immune system, I would throw in some peppermint open up those nasal passageways maybe nice. Irby oil like Rosemary or time or Oregano. T tree is Great Franken Census Grey also any of those oils you have thrown into that nice thick carrier oil use it as a gesture of as needed or check out the thieves chest rub is easy to apply real strong, real potent, and give it five stars. And now, I'm super excited to share this week's DIY dugout recipe. It comes from Deborah Shannon in Atkins Arkansas and it is a recipe for a citrus phys the sounds. So delicious in glass combined the following ingredients and mix thoroughly half a can to one can of sparkling water one packet of Stevia, two drops, grapefruit essential oil, and then optional if you have any inning sherrod around at one to two ounces of Nick. Sharad. If you don't have Ningxia ride, which is a great will ferry puree juice that young living makes you can add in maybe another dark red kind of juice like Cherry juice pomegranate or something, and then ice. So just combine all that and you've got yourself a citrus phys.

You read it and you related to it. That's an incredible. Okay Let. Haven't you taken the time to learn about I? Mean this is embarrassing. And probably too broad of an answer, but history and like politics I'm interested. In watching people talk about historical things and like political debates and all that stuff. You will never ever hear me Wade. into the waters of like discussing anything related to history. Or the current like socio political landscape, none of that I feel like I know like the basic facts like I went to high school. I know some basic things but deep historical knowledge. None and I'm not going to learn any ivy like when people talk about what they don't know, they then follow it up by being like, but I'm GonNa read I'm not I'm not I'm not too many things are happening now I gotta stay in the Zeitgeist of now piles of books that I wanna read that are Britain now I'm never going to learn I will learn like some specific historical things right like I just got that book. By Patrick Radin kief about the troubles and Ireland I will read that book so that I will know about the troubles according to that book, but like a broad historical knowledge. She very funny. She's very witty. She's written at least five bestsellers and she knows a lot about the troubles in Ireland. The world foremost troubles emerge I. mean other than the guy who wrote the book. Obviously, but yeah, it's history is one of those things. It changes so fast. I never had an interest in squall, and like anytime. Anyone mentions anything I do like to watch documentaries like I watched a documentary about the La riots the other day, and that was good and I watched this netflix documentary just disclosure last night about Trans Representation. That was very good, and like I learned some things, but on a whole I feel like I. Don't know anything.

Take your antidepressant and get through the day and I do that of course, but like. If you can't get through that day, I feel like. It so brave and incredible to say listen I can't do it today. Maybe tomorrow, maybe the day after that, and I really do respond to that kind of honesty and appreciate that kind of honesty, and of course. I want you to do what you need to do for yourself. Yeah with your blog. Did you have those feelings of like Shit I don't know if I should put this out there. That feels really honest. Okay, I'm just GonNa die, so I started my blog, and like two thousand eight or something like that like you know trying to date and stuff and a lot of people in my life. Where like oh? There's no one. Like once, people like find your blog. They're not gonNA want to. Date you like no one. No one wants to know all of this stuff about you and I'm like well. I get that. I get that, but then the flip side is they find out all this stuff about me later and that you know what I mean. At least they'll know from the jump what they're getting into an I don't have to like pretend to be something or someone else. They're just GONNA, know it from the beginning, and like my blog did not get me any dates, but I also though have like made enough league lasting relationships through my writing that that doesn't matter. I am. Do you have any odd collections of any kind? No, I mean have many many bugs I. Don't WanNa. Say I'm not a sentimental person, but I am weird about having.

Sore. No little shoe boxes full of stuff or anything, and now that I like live in a place that I'm not gonNA move from for a while. I still don't. Do you feel uncomfortable with the idea of being stationary? An itch to continue to move or. Not really but I do have a sort of worry about getting too comfortable like I do like to stay in place and like put down. Roots and like you know, feel like this is my home and this is where my desk is, and there's my chair. You know I do like that and I do like the idea of like being a part of a community. But I think there's always gonna be that part of me. 'cause like you know. I got bumped around. As a kid like in different foster homes and stuff. I, think there's that part of me. That's always like well. Don't settle in too much 'cause you're gonNA. Get kicked out soon, but yeah I love the idea of like. Staying in place for a while, but I'm always like waiting for the other shoe to drop. I, think in life I'm a person who's always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Yeah, and that to me is that's like going back a little bit. The optimist plasmas question because I feel like I have that too of lake well.

Kid, who was poor and tin ever have the right anything you know all the shit you need to have. I didn't have any of it because we didn't have any money I definitely started making jokes to beat people to the punch right, but if I make job before you do than it, sort of takes the teeth out of it, even as an adult like whatever I feel bad about, or I feel like people could say to hurt me. It's like if I say first then if you repeat it like you just sound like an idiot. And when you repeat it or if you say something similar than it's like I already did it, so it stings less if other people do it and the weird reason that I like I get asked. There's a divide in Hollywood mentality about like comedic actor versus dramatic. Which has always been? Like confounding not, it's not confounding because I understand the need a gas to categorize. Kissers two different intimacy levels I. Think are very different with comedic work. That's painful and relatable. And funny, sometimes because of its pain, like the idea of loneliness or isolation or also embarrassment, and how comforting it is, of course, when other people have those same experiences and how much we need them, and then dramatic work, which feels I guess more indulgent in a way or Like the idea of asking for one sympathy whether that's that's an overt ask, or if it's a bit sort of mixed in with other asks of an audio.

Yeah so I this is just my natural state and I love seeing everyone else get here and recognized by the way to be 'cause I think we all stopped. I mean there's always going to be one person who's like wax like American. Trust up but if most of us like just Kinda keep riding. This like bronchitis bearded way that these are the new beauty standards to go back. Maybe we won't do. You have one thing so for me. My one thing is I really do wash and dry when I wash my hair. I dry my hair And I because I cannot do some people are like oh I have to get dressed in the morning. No I literally get in the shower and then put on the pajamas. I've had on for like two weeks and feel nothing but I have to. I have to dry my hair. It makes me feel clean. It makes me. It's like the minimum thing I can do. Do you have one thing that you are not giving up on? I am still so I. Sometimes a lot of times shave my head. And when my hair grows it's ver- it's like corkscrew. Kinda twisty curls makes too much for me to deal with But I can't go to the barber so my hair is getting long and I have been doing my very tedious hair moisturizing and styling every single day. How what is the process so I have to? I've gotten it down. I wash it with a like a lush Chiampou bar which I do splurge on those I like to pretend I care about the environment but only when it comes to life overprice right right. You're like this is actually charity. That I'm doing here. I washed my hair in the shower. Draw towel dry it and then I use this like cam to moisturizing cream so the extra step and I would have chosen this. If it weren't so knee as my product but I use this thing called a twisted up calm. Okay not a comb at all. It looks like a little tennis racket. And it's for natural black hair and you take it. I'll send you a picture. You take it and you kind of like rub it around in circles googling your hair you rub it around in circles on your hair and it makes little twists like it really defines your little corkscrew twists and it goes it make take my hair from like a dry looking puffy cotton ball to like these define coyly with that are very cute. It doesn't take a long time but it takes longer than like having a shaved head. I wash my scalp and put a little a little product on it to keep it from working dry and look before and after of people using the twisted dot com and it like this makes so much sense to me like. It's it's incredible. Yeah I know I now understand many people. I probably know who used one. Because like you know it's like it's like it's like it goes from like a frizzy sort of like one unit sort of hair to like actually individualized pronounced Cork straps. Oh this is cool and it does look like a tennis racket on my barber so I went to the barber and he. We decided to like leave my hair little longest which he likes and I was like all but it looked so puffy. I Look Cute Zip. And then he used it on my head and I was like give me that cost. I will pay you whatever. Look how good I look. And he just gave it to me for Free Nice but I have purchased several so that I can have them all over the house. Yeah but yeah that is my one thing I do. I do moisturizing my hair and use my twisted. I said I'm glad to know that we're both hair people. It's like nuancing. It's like shower every day but my hair slicked is now with the twisted up. Can you do like is there? A certain length of natural hair that it works best on or like even if you had a little bit longer because I'm seeing these guys who have a little bit longer hair using it. Is there a limit as to what works? Best on wall some so. When my hair's I growing there needs to be something for it to grab a whole of so. I have to have a minimum lakes but I don't know 'cause you I get so not I driven so crazy by having any hair on my head. I've never let my hair get super long. I'm always like and it. It makes my Barbara cry every time but I usually go like six months and then I'm like okay. Dray please cut it all off. I would like to see my scalp again but I I don't know well I will. I will chart my progress for you. We is since we are on lockdown and refused to cut my own hair That's smart though that's smart. You shouldn't be cutting your hair. My husband just had me do like the four on the clippers the other day in the yard and let me tell you. I didn't like the experience also because I am. I definitely did it wrong and I was like looks good but like you know like like he's like guys hair grows so fast and he doesn't really like it when it gets like all shaggy and like and I was like okay. I'll do it but I I can't do anything I don't give me any like I can't. I hate like switch it up like if you want like a four. On the Clipper. You're getting a four around the entire. I'm not going I'm not giving you a fade so F- pick what you want and don't get mad at me. I didn't go to barber school like this is an actual skilled profession. Like don't get out here with a razor and I imagine also for natural hair that you have to be really careful like there's there's like a way away a direction in which to cut it so that it grows back looking like the way that you want it. I I can't fade my own hand. I cut it I just have to use. I mean this might scare you. I use a one guard or even the little half guard and just like go all the way down to the way of reckless it. I know I live on the you. Do the razor. We're going insane. It's really like rubber room laughing. Like puns on. I know it's like talking to anyone who doesn't live in this house. It's like Oh my God. Do you want to hear some bad jokes or do my routine? But have you cutting cutting your hair? Yeah at home is too tricky. Yes I'm I'm with you I I'm so in awe of my friends. Were like giving themselves bangs. And they all look amazing and so. Here's where I have to be like. Look you are older than twenty-six like you're you know frontal CORTEX has developed a you tell myself. I'm like you know like when if this was happening and I was twenty two. You don't even understand the hair that I would. I would have already come with like a like a kitchen pizza. She looks great or like I can't believe it looks bad. Who would have ever thought that it would not have looked good? But now I'm like you're a fully developed brain adult like you know that my friend Shannon cut her bangs. We'll know I think she got them pre pandemic well. She looks amazing. I think she might be trimming them. My friend Arianna Rebellin -I. She had all of her hair off and she looks amazing. She just like literally put in a pony tail unlike chopped. It and I had to hide the scissors from myself because my friends look so good and I know better. I would look horrible and so I. It's the same thing it's like instagram. Influencers like pandemic version where everyone's like going like nuts on themselves and I have to be like you can't do that. Carolina like that does not work for. You mustn't up you. Can't I mean there's no fixing it for you? A regular person who did not go to beauty school right if they can't fix it right and there's no way that can just. I mean there are and that's why I won't search for them because there's a really good one that I'm like actually got drunk about my own banks house. How is this pandemic going for your marriage like what's it? What's it been like if you WanNa tell me summit of 'cause I'd love to talk about it for me too? It's been fine. I saw my wife is a social worker in the Public Schools Michigan. Shut down schools. I like a few weeks ago. They were like yeah. We're done and we're done until September. So here's the thing. My wife is a person who is like she would go for a walk and a run in the same day maniac. She likes to be outside things so like it's been fine for me. It has been interesting watching her. Grapple with the inside live. Yes and are you like welcome. Welcome to my. I'm like looking what I do all day. Absolutely nothing like. Do you want to move to sit over here now? And we'll sit in this other place then. We can sit over here then. We can live down in this room. This room has laying down and she's like slowly going crazy. She's just moved from our this chair. Already had and the other chair for two hours with the program. It is a lot of cooking night and she has garden so she's done some planting for the most part. I think I think between us. It's fine I feel bad because it is hard if I do feel like a little guilt. Even on twitter and seven people are like ongoing crazy. And I'm like Oh this is. My dream is just to be inside. Yeah it's the it's the same for US actually. It seems like I am the you and Dan my husband. Dan Is your wife and that but he likes so. He's an outdoor person in that he really enjoys. So we have outside here in L. A. and He's been gardening and he likes to. He likes to cook so he's actually in a good place but we have such A. We have like a really independent of each other sort of relationship where we're laying. We'd always are doing things separate of each other like that's kind of why we got married in the first place was we like we operate the same. We don't we don't we. Don't we have friends for like different things that we like to do? And then he and I come together to do things that we like to do together. And now we're like Omar under the hanging out and I was like I like to. Tv's are like really great we we don't like anything. We do not watch the same TV. Yeah I WANNA watch like scary like murder like svu calms me. I'm really into like like Hulu. I think specifically like similar instagram ads. Just like shows me things that like. It thinks I wanNA watch so every time I turn on. Hulu it's like Casey Anthony Lake the Menendez brothers and every time I'm like Oh yeah dancing so dancing in the other room watching like reruns of new girl and I'm in watching like some weird rape plot of being like this is the only thing that brings me peace and and we've also getting into the before we got married you know how like they people give their partners like a watch and then like. I don't know it's something I saw on Pinterest. It's like you give them a good. I gave my husband like grooms gift or whatever like I gave him a Nintendo switch. Because he doesn't like he wouldn't do anything with a watch so so now we're like. Oh we have the switch like we'll play. Mario Kart and I was like please like by animal. Crossing everyone's tweeting animal crossing. I want to know about animal crossing. And he made fun of me for a long time and then we bought it and he has not given me back to the switch since he will not stop playing animal crossing and I was like this was my idea. And he's like I have to catch the fish..
"irby" Discussed on The Book Review
"Is the Book Review Podcast for the New York Times. It's April seventeenth. I'm Pamela Paul. Joining us now from Kalamazoo Michigan Samantha. Irby her new collection is called. Wow No thank you Samantha. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. Let's start with the obvious question which I feel like is at the beginning and end of every single email and text right now. How are you doing? I actually doing? O K which feels like weird to say considering what's going on but I am an inside person so I don't mind not getting fresh air and not saying hello to people. It is just sort of terrifying existing in the world like I also not watching a lot of news but as for adjusting to being inside all the time. It wasn't really an adjustment for me. I was like Oh really go outside anyway so this is perfect. Your I s in the collection into the gross is of about your daily routine and I who's trying to figure out what how would that have changed during Corinthian and it like it probably wouldn't have changed? Maybe until the end of the day where your wife comes home from work. But I'm assuming she's not or is she going out to work. Every day is not working. She is a social worker in the public schools. And they very quickly it Michigan. Where like Y'All stay home. So she has been here all day. And we're so we're figuring out like how to do that like how to be together all the time. It's harder for her because she is the person who's like. Hey I'm GONNA be in the garden. Hey I'm going to go for a walk. Am Donna also go for a run in the same day to every one for a welcome link? But you just ran. Where are you going to walk to so mind? Day hasn't changed at all except because she's here I feel like I need to look more productive than I usually am of had to be like I watch a little bit more. Tv than you think. I watch I know everyone is getting a very good idea what their partner does. And this moment never knew before I even asked anyone. How are you doing? No one is saying great like you know what you know that that super puppy response is just not happening. How are things in? Kalamazoo is at total lockdown. There Michigan is completely locked down so talented. Zoos like equidistant between Detroit and Chicago on ninety. Four art until Detroit's a couple hours east of US and Detroit's men pretty ravaged. I think last we heard last week. There were fewer than one hundred cases. Here although part of the not being okay of it all is no one knows where it is or who has it or how many people have it were pretty sure our neighbor had it and she went to the ER and they couldn't test her so that's one of those things where it's like. Everybody seems like they're kind of okay. But we don't actually know because no one really knows so it seems like everybody's fine but also how can you know? I was on a zoom with my book club last night and one of the members had been living in Paris and came back and had to fourteen day quarantine and I think on day fourteen. You know he finally emerged from his apartment and there was some kind of message from. I don't know if it was a doorman or next door or something being like what are you doing out. You're supposed to be on quarantine so it's this weird thing of like. I don't know if it was a camera that caught him or someone. You know spying in the hallway but it's like you either know too much or you don't know at all. Oh God that would really freak me out because just the idea that anyone is paying attention to anything. I too was very distressing to me but that they would watch me and then send me a note I would have an anxiety spiral foreshore but in your writing. You are so open. I feel like we all know what you do. Everyone knows what I tell you that I do. But it's different. If someone is watching new do it. You know like when it doesn't feel like a choice to share schlep around the house to carry my belongings from room to room but if you said you saw me doing that I'd be like oh no did I. At least look interesting where my most clean? My shirt slept in your book. Basically came out right in the thick of this. I think you're probably luckier than some in that. This is your third book of essays. Your Fourth Book Right Sir Book Investors and then I have like an e book. That doesn't really count. My publisher is like it counts. It counts the counts right now. E books is a lot of what people are reading because they are. They can have access to bookstores libraries in many cases but also authors like. You can't go on book tour. Are you doing a virtual book tour? Like what were you supposed to be doing? And what are you doing instead? In terms of promoting the book I was supposed to go across the country. I was going to start at this festival in Iowa and then go to Seattle and down the West Coast and then do the Midwest and then start a New York and go down the east coast. I don't think anyone has figured out the perfect virtual tour so I've done a few things. I've done some skype podcasts. I'm GonNa do some instagram live kind of conversations and then I did one zoom panel. Which was I thought it was. It felt really weird but I don't think we figured out exactly like the best way like everyone's kind of learning at figuring it out as they go so I don't have an official virtual tour. I'M GONNA do up virtual event with my bookstore in Chicago but as for the rest of the country. I don't know what we're GONNA do. It's also I mean it's a hard thing because it's also it feels like a little gross to be selling a book right now you know Towing the line between rescheduling things but also understanding out like people are sick. And maybe it's not. It's not as important to figure out how to broadcast me out into the world. It really is like a day by day. Oh Hey this person figured out how you do this in Philly. Let's do that. We have no set plan. Were just kind of playing it by ear and doing what we can't all right. Well here's my framework for that. I think of it night as selling a book but as supporting the booksellers and publishers and other authors who are out there and also helping readers because readers are are desperate right now. I want to read. Actually something that Carl Siegel our critic wrote in her review of your book. I hope you're not one of those people that avoids reading reviews of Your Book. I am but I know that this was positive because everyone told me it was positive. So I'm braced for it and it's cool okay. All right ready. She wrote instead of a rule. Then a recommendation. For this moment if the grips of the pandemic your ability to interpret an exponential graph has increased well exponentially while your patients for narrative has plummeted. Tries Samantha. Irby so she's heartily recommending. You as something to read right now in order to give listeners a taste of why that is. Would you read a little bit from your new collection? Wow No thank you. Yes so. This is from Piece called hung up and it is about my love of cellular phones. I was late to the technology game. I'm staring down the barrel of my fortieth year and I bought my computer six or seven years ago. I didn't get my first iphone until they'd been around for years partially because I thought who needs that. I prefer to live in the real world mostly. I was skeptical because the idea of walking around with a five hundred dollar computer in my pocket seemed ridiculous and dangerous to me and the idea that I can somehow scraped together the money to purchase said pocket computer while also maintaining a roof over my head. I E partying all the time and paying for basic cable was hilarious and unrealistic. I was the last dinosaur at the club sending multi tap texts on an analog Nokia e fifty one with no camera when I finally upgraded to a smartphone. Several years after unsolicited selfish had taken hold of the nation. My exhausted psalms cracked and bleeding from a decade of repeatedly jamming down the two key to make a letter see. I didn't get what all the fuss was about. Okay sure this glowing rectangle in my bag can tell me the weather anywhere in the world at this exact moment but who cares but wait. It could also figure out precisely what wrong street. I'm turning down and steer me back in the right direction and it can count. How many steps? I took today while saving for me all the passwords I can never remember. Please excuse me while I build a shrine to the new most important thing in my life. I've read on my phone that we as a nation as a species have a problem with cellphones. Insert facts about the harms of cell phone usage. That I'm never going to research because I do not enjoy feeling like an underachiever. But do we really. Is there actually a problem with rescuing our brains from the doldrums of sitting at a red light or from the Malays caused by having even even a single second to sit alone with one terrible thoughts? I don't have children. Therefore I don't have any opinions on whether electronic devices are a bad influence on the mental growth and development of a child. If you tell me they are than I believe you. I'm sure there's scientific evidence prove it and I'm positive. There are doctors and licensed professionals. Who would attest to the DILATOT? Serious effect modern technology has on the brains and interpersonal skills of adults. But hear me out. Maybe it's worth it. That was great. What about you Samantha? Have you been able to read for fun during this time? I'm not ever so distracted that I can't pick up a book which I feel is good so I have been reading a lot of fiction and like nothing about disease or being locked in a room. But you're a huge thriller Fan Right. Is there s recommendations like good escape reading either thrillers or Wa which I know you also love yes so I am like pretty obsessed with this writer Louisa. Luna there are two books in this series so far. I don't think the series has the name. It's like an Alice Vega novel I think is maybe like the subtitle but the first one is called two girls down and her second book in the series is called the Janes and I just reread both of those and they are so good she so good thrillers are my thing and she is a master and I just reread Mary. H K choice books emergency contact and permanent record and they're both Y. A. They make me feel totally uncool because she has mastered the way. Young people talk. And I'm like man I kind of don't know what they're saying but I do love this a lot. She is a super cool writer. So this is your third book of essays. The first one meaty than we are never meeting in real life now. Wow No thank you. I'm curious how like in your mind or they categorized as different periods of Your Life. Different themes different topics. How do they stand apart for you? Well meaning to me feels most like. Here's an overview of my past. Here's a here's how we got here kind of and then we're never meeting in real life is kind of a mix of. Here's how we got here. Here's where we're going because I'd met my partner at that point. But she wasn't my wife yet and I hadn't moved from Chicago to Michigan yet. And then while no thank you is like where I am right now. It's a Kalamazoo Essay collection. It's me in Kalamazoo in our raggedy farmhouse with the cats. Like this is where I'm at if you're looking for Great Kalamazoo literature look no further. Where they're very time. We're their new subjects that you wanted to take on in this collection like do you pose a challenge for yourself as a writer. Now I'm going to write about this. I wasn't ready before. I'm going to try this new thing. I mean my life kind of helped in that like I hadn't lived with anyone who wasn't a roommate before and I hadn't been married before I had been with. Anyone with like teams are before so it just kind of lent itself. I was like I'm GonNa clock all of these feelings that I'm having while on having them rather than like looking back you know like oh remember when the you know remember heartfelt when I I lived with a child. It's it's different to do that as tapping into kind of like you know process those feelings and then put them right out for other people so I told myself before I started that there are some things I just didn't WanNa go into like I didn't want to talk about my parents anymore. Or any of that stuff. I really wanted to focus on what I'm doing what I might be doing in the future so my life just kind of helped to put all the subject matter together for me. How do you approach your subjects like do you kind of know this feels right or do you decide to write about something? If it feels a little bit scary or a little uncertain so two approaches wine is when something happens like an event happens. And it's like Sony or embarrassing or something embarrassing that I could make a usually think like okay. This is a story..

Online spending on track to hit a new record this holiday season
"It's been a record record couple days for online shopping and just a few hours left in Cyber Monday. Retailer seemed poised for another big hall. Let's get to Courtney Reagan with the big numbers behind one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Hey Courtney Hey Melissa. So I'm here at one of Walmart's fulfilment campuses. This is actually one of six that is working to fulfill all of those online line orders. That are coming in on cyber Monday. Walmart does expect that today may end up being one of if not its biggest day of the year for those online orders and so far some of their bestsellers include the apple. Air Pods that INSTA- pot. Apparently not everybody has one of those yet the Ninja Air Fryer the video fifty five inch TV and the Nintendo switch but in total beyond just Walmart Dot Com. The National Retail Federation does expect the sixty nine million Americans will shop at some point today. you mentioned those records. Adobe is expecting this days sales to grow out twenty percent over last year to hit nine point four billion dollars. And that's on top of the records Kurds. That were already set online for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. But what's interesting. Is there still a lot of shopping. That's going to be left done tonight. Remember ever in the old days when you had to get to work to use the high speed internet on your desktop computers. That's what we saw pete sales much earlier in the day during work hours. Now it's much later at at night. The golden hours adobe expects will be between seven and eleven. PM Pacific Time. So that's ten PM here on the East Coast. Once the kids are in bed and all the chores are done. That's when they think the shopping will get started now. Of course we are getting some preliminary data for how things have been shaping up online edison trends at least analyzed. It's about three hundred thousand transactions from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. They say that Nordstrom has actually seeing the biggest increase in customer spending online compared compared to last year with a sixty percent jump Walmart close behind with fifty three percent in the Amazon with forty nine percent target however and J. C. Penney those spending online numbers from these transactions samples fell about twelve and fourteen percent respectively. We still have an awful lot of shopping and time left to go and we know we still have a decent season left even though it is six days at shorter. So be careful when you're ordering online and you're looking at the shipping dates just a little bio buyer irby wear for Meteo beco- view of all. Right thanks for the tip. Courtney Reagan What are you doing over there? He is your modem on the Fritz on this one of those people to coordinate when when you go to the work for the high speed Internet. I'm one of the. That's what you're doing is doing right now answering your question if you WanNa have a conversation about retail. I can do that as well very much. Still by eight track tape players hundred percent should say that retail looked the trades are interesting Cosco reports on December twelve. It's had a huge run but now valuations traits it thirty two times next year's numbers we've been both China Carter. Braxton worth through appears every Friday on the options action which would back this this Friday after being usurped this past week by the holiday he talked about this for the last six months. He's been correct. I think you've got to sell it into earnings target catching up the Walmart art finally on Valuation But Walmart at Twenty three times which is sort of the benchmark for everything in my opinion is just too expensive in this environment one thing. I don't know if we break out. His is buy online. Pick up in store which I think is a really a difference. It's a very big difference right and and you invariably by something else when you're there right so That's one interesting part. I think you know target sighted a number of other ones do. I think there's GonNa be retail winners here. We've seen some of the ones is that don't work right. I don't know if macy's can turn it around I think I'm not optimistic on that one. But I do think that I do think Nordstrom has a much better chance as a much better chance and even though the socks more expensive. I'd rather be in a Nordstrom macy's both of those stocks extreme streaming serenely high interest percent about. Yes we just got numbers Nordstrom and they were fine although if you look again they're they're they're full price versus their offer Akwa their sale price two very different stories perpetuating the story they get a little boost out of their New York flagship store adding some some gross margin. But when you look at target and Walmart I would go back to those. Because I think they've been such great stocks people own over the last twelve months but The relative victory that Delta in their online sales growth has been so extraordinary and so price. I stand in so much the part I think if people said when they said guess what targets not going to Amazon and that's exactly part of why the stock has done so well so hard for me to say that that's not in the price. I think the bar for both of those folks into this holiday season is very very high. Amazon has been targeted or Walmart. Well no it has. I mean listen you know I think at the end of the day import remember that Amazon while they get about fifty percent of the online sales growth that exists out. There you know. Online sales are still ten percent or less of the total five trillion earliest of US consumer sales. So there's plenty I think that's why Amazon is kind of stalled here. Some of these guys have made some really good progress. They made investments over the last couple of years. That took some time to kind in a bear out and they're starting to do that. I'll just say one name to keep an eye on home. Depot had that gap after earnings a couple of weeks ago and it kept going I think about nine and a half percent peak to trough decline started bounce last week a little bit look pretty good technically coming off of a trend line that thing turn lower keep an eye on that one because I just think that there's a lot of concentration in some of these mega. Ah Big big box names and these home improvement stocks that have really outperform but if you look at the X.. RT which is a broader look at all of retail it's ten percent of the year really underperforming the SNP. So I want to keep an eye on some of these other ones. That are very crowded and I think guys Costco the way it reacts to earnings guidance will be very important for the weed tells me
In The Gate - Off to See the Wizard
"Say you're the parent of a teenager as I and maybe your teenager isn't quite sure of his or her future career ambitions as mine isn't that's fine many teenagers that mold right well you as the parrot probably want your kid to go to college but without much direction you're less likely to send him or her father way I mean if your kid wants to be a film director then the University of Southern California might make sense and if it costs big money to go there then you figure it out well Saffy Joseph Junior wanted to be like his father a horse trainer his parents wanted him to go to college so they booted him off the island of Barbados where they lived and sent him to the United States to a prep school near Miami for two years and then to Florida International University just up the road from there that didn't quite work Joseph says now since he spent more time at Gulfstream and the track formerly known as called her now extreme park west than he did in class so he returned to the island then started training he even won the barbadian triple Crown Onu in two thousand nine two years later in two thousand eleven saffy Joseph came ashore for good and now he's got a chance to make quite a few blonde dollars in the Breeders Cup classic math wizard try to sprang up big upset the outside improbable saving all the way looking to come through on the inside it's Mr coming off the turn with the lead Mr Buddy Friday spun to run outside probably left inside floor of women between horses bath wizard other four outside what a finish the Pennsylvania Derby bear cubs math wizard on the outside math weser bester body outside bath wizard math wizard yes sir bath wizard thirty two what upset later end up Pennsylvania Derby and with the Classic Division thinned-out by injury it is conceivable that Saffi Joseph might just join dougie fresh Riana and grandmaster flash as milestone achieving native barbadians and with that we welcome trainer Saffy Joseph Junior here to win the gate let's start with math wizard of course what did you feel as he was coming down the stretch of the Pennsylvania Dir irby or surreal feeling this you know you're hoping you'll get there it was happening in slow motion and then when he got there like it was just unbelievable the he could run a race like that it'd be those Kinda worse is something that was a dream come truce he finished x than the grade three West Virginia Derby at the beginning of August and that was seven weeks before the Pennsylvania Derby how were you able to give this horse some time often Florida and then have him sharp enough to win a grade one race in late September all just came together I think West Virginia was one race to meet Bram not period the sex ratio degrees we kept him in killing during that time which is probably a mistake probably brought him back home we got about home in the Senate and he took his first book easier the second one was very good on his third where it was extraordinary I won't play like we didn't he'll come always third rats for us was stiff work but he did it so good so we didn't know how long it'll take recuperate we were able to get a slight firm on Thursday which gave us a couple of days you can see the rage Senate worked Oprah Edgardo Zayas has been the regular writer for math wizard but he didn't come up from Florida for the pen Derby because the horses entry was so last minute so what does the writer situation look like from here yeah we weren't sure for even going to there'd be and he had already committed some raids gulfstream so he stayed here unfortunately and for the writer and the we're still undecided we have we don't have a writer Iran permitted to ride and Dino Russo so writer is still open at the moment we haven't decided we're going to wait we don't have to rush any decision wait and see what happens something we mentioned in our open how you arrived here from Barbados in two thousand eleven I'll bet many of our listeners and I have to have been include myself in this didn't even know there was thoroughbred racing in Barbados. What is the racing scene like there yeah they run right now in Barbara's twice a month it's a three quarter tracks along the turf only we trained on on the dirt run on the turf there's only turf racing I should go out with her when you dare you get much closer to the horses race in actually part of it and I think that's unique mess that has you're so close to the horses racing gives you the vibrant Phil what we didn't mention was that when you came here you had exactly two horses in your care how did you get from there take here just keep trying to do good I keep trying to win races and attract attention and asking people for chances and I think it all comes together a lot of opportunities a lot of owners have been supportive of us and you just keep working things work a volunteer place trainers saffy Joseph Junior joining us here on gaito send out the pen Derby winner math wizard in the Breeders Cup classic as if coming from Barbados to train a grade one winner isn't crazy enough there's the fact that less than a year ago math wizard ran in sixteen thousand dollars maiden claiming race at Gulfstream and finished thirty didn't even win and to make things even crazier do you know who won that sixteen thousand dollars maiden claimer last December maximum security proves he's the real deal and there's no need to go down that rabbit hole right now the what do you think of these great winning is coming out of a race that low on the Horse Racing Totem Pole was unbelievable because normally you think who made it and Sixteen especially for young very few people at risk any horse of quality and those kind of Race Maine Sixteen Majority of time running or three early three hundred sixteen are very good if they're into sixteen thousand as far as ability goes to have two tours of the same race that one greater like if someone was to believe that I've seen it actually happened it would probably go down in the history of race in the best maintenance we never gonNA change over time but I don't think I was going to change did you get more ambitious with math wizard because maximum security went on onto do bigger things I know but Mathur's reclaim them in January I think in January so maximum security I don't want the Florida every year A good decision I think we got him at the right time now you have another potential superstar the two year old chance it and he's off the umbrella five likely now smash factor is flat to the Board Second Town Centre with Liam's Lucky charm but let there be no doubt who's best the in reality goes the chance at Chattan wrapped up gear down and six on top chance at what a stakes race at your home base of Gulfstream back in late September and while Chan is it will skip the Breeders Cup we'd be remiss if we didn't mention him
The Target Food Haul Episode
"Today we have target hall target we went to target some of US did some of us are just being surprised by what we got thanks apprised for one of the first times I can't wait very exciting I feel like we're making up for last time because we didn't eat anything last week on the podcast now we have like two times as many things yeah we're eating every okay so I want to jump right in but you've got something for us I assuming do all right target just launched its biggest grocery brand ever it's called good and gather now the idea behind gooding gather is great food made with quality ingredients that you can have on the table fast so there's no artificial flavors no synthetic colors are official sweeteners or high fructose Corn Syrup and they have more than two thousand items ranging from organic snacks for Salad Mixes and in meals but two thousand that's like almost grocery store in its own right like it's crazy wow that's that's amazing and I actually like that name gooding gather sometimes these names are just kind of cheesy it's like this I don't want to I don't want to offend anybody but they simply also how different is this because they had simply balanced right those are the ones that they still have that it's a little different I'm not sure sounds like you need it sounds cool trying some today right Excited amy would it know though I glanced ahead because I thought we might get that question are we trying today we're excited no working so we're going to just jump right and where are you going to start today by the way with fridge finds things that you find in the refrigerated section at target we're going to refrain from calling at target the people still know people that that I don't know we don't we don't say that here it's tar get forget so the first thing we are starting with archer farms stuffed chicken breasts cutlets and they are stuffed with you wanNA guess Mozzarella and gloves close asparagus John Cheddar each piece has only one hundred seventy calories five grams of fat twenty nine grams of protein three smart points we added uh-huh were points as we did for those who love us and love weight watchers so it takes about twenty five to thirty minutes in the oven you should know this so it's not like a goodin gather it but then you have to cook it cooking but it's hands off time you don't have to do any of the stuffing rolled up this looks like way leaks like a piece of twine line that we're not supposed to eat see it maybe it is I don't know yeah like they tied it up it might be tied up bound and gagged bonus you miss no it's a it's a stuffed chicken breasts let's describe this it's like a chicken breasts that has been seasoned it comes completely raw and then you cook it with you know in the oven it's got the stuff in the middle how are we going to do this we just going to pass around the plate let's rally grabbing I don't see any Cheddar well this cheddar stuffing's a little well it really mostly chicken you know what it is it's like folded on top of it it's not in the middle grab some green beans asparagus spare guy Ma that's really coming very tasty taste fresh I feel like they did a good job seasoning which is a common mistake I know and it's not overly salty it's like a nice tiny touch of Cheddar the tastes they taste good there little overcooked Irby I like it I feel like that's a great dinner option if you're kind of bored with the average chicken dinner so you just pop it in the oven for what like fifteen minutes to thirty Don Juan and then you're done it's awesome but at one hundred seventy calories the stats are really really good so I like this a lot yeah I do like that. They didn't go overboard on the Cheddar because they could have made this fatty fat McFadden could've they didn't they did not do that. 'cause it's archer farms we like archer Barnes and we trust them but that's not is that a target bread exclusively exclusive target simply balanced now good and excellent okay next up this is no evil now remember the less of Lesser Evil or they make snacks right yeah next I like them but this is no evil foods there it's called plant meet that does not sound so appealing but it's no chicken comrade clock shredded strips one hundred thirty calories one gram of fat no evil this premise recommended by the newman sisters yeah it looks a little intimidating I have to be honest with you it looks frightening it looks like Cook Jerky I'm going to try to exactly what it looks like you know chicken plant meet actually hold on I'm Aaron recommend trying it with twenty barbecue sauce really really like it in the skillet per the package directions the texture a little bit odd but it tastes good it tastes like chicken really with us all the way it looks them eat it with your eyes closed Jimmy he's with this barbecue use sauce face for radio do you think lesser evil is annoyed that they didn't think to make themselves no no I don't know because there is no such thing is a snack that's no evil and I think this refers to the fact that no animals are harmed Lawley is shaking to that and approval yes I like it again no evil oh foods plant meat no chicken comrade clock shredded strips that's a mouthful literally and we will link you to their website because it's not just a target what else did they make. Let's see the stallion Italian sausage hit boss pulled pork we can do a rocky reference I'm in this is cool I like this brand I like it no evil thumbs up okay next up we're trying our first good and gather item Yea good and gather mild sweet onion salsa I do like sweet onion I do like salsa mild is okay this one has died Mehta's onion Jalapeno salon show you like Cilantro right I love you're not in the camp where it smell or taste no taste ooh wow brim thin and falling all over my show notes re kind of looks like the Salsa we got from all it does actually it looks like how long I'm GonNa get up and grab from Jamie computer to be eating with carrots I like it it's a little salty two little salty but and it's very very onion but I like it it's it's different I feel like I would use it as a sauce more than US also I would use it both ways I would use it it also depends if you salsa that's more like less chunky big league unique days fresh funky fly and remember we're in the refrigerated section yes ten calories zero fat zero smart points by the way the no evil cluck cluck cluck cluck chicken it had to smart points a bar do very much of Argon okay we are moving on onto a new Yogurt Chill Bonnie Vanilla Greek yogurt with cashew butter. Are you so excited mikey loves Gert I've been waiting for like the yogurts with the the nut butter I tried them no and the stats are really surprisingly reasonable so that they that container that single serve container has one hundred sixty calories six grams of fat and eleven grams of protein at six points okay let slightly high right like it's high in the points department but await Ahmed at it ooh it's got giant swirls while leases making it swirl I am making its swirl look at talented I am is that the nut butter at the bottom is that swirling in I'm trying to mix it around what flavor is this cashew Butter Without Anneli Yogurt Oh okay spoon that is interesting it's interesting because like I'm a huge fan of cashews but I like it and did they have a peanut butter version I wish they did let's say it's not bad is it like it's great I don't know cashew butter is this is so interesting so they have a Hazelnut Butter version with Chocolate Yogurt they have an almond butter version but no peanut it's not bad interesting feels gimmicky it's not amazing do you think it's amazing no and I I love peanut butter like I don't get not a huge cash a fan love cashews I don't get such cashew flavor I don't get a huge vanilla flavor I would not purchase that there's better it's not terrible but there's you better Trapani out there that is true I do Johnny and they have great options that's just okay okay we are onto frozen who's feeling ready to be Um burn out berea prior scarves I up simply balanced organic keen Wa spinach garbanzo beans red peppers and onions seasoned blend okay so this is a meal starter kind of thing and what that means is like you know at some protein comes in a bag it's like a blend of grain and veg and whatever else he wanted to but we're going to try this chemo grain I feel like I heard it was a seed or son they would you like the Quinoa Salad Quinoa Salad I heard that like eight times I was like it's technically a flowering plant Oh she's young all right let's talk calorie count about this show one hundred and fifty calories a cup four and a half grams of fat four grams of fiber five grams of protein four smart points so I would like beef that up with more vegetables and some chicken but it's good I like it more than I thought I would it's well seasoned they did a good job there friends no more not but yeah and more spices if you want not too shabby and that's another house brand so that's exclusive at target simply balance and next up this is not a house brands as a brand from our past del Monte Veggie Veggie and Mozzarella Bites cited for this Oh wow this just seems like a decade the little fine for us it's like an odor of situation it's like a little fried stuff that looks good look at this stuff veggies what type of veggies and Mozzarella five pieces one two three four five they're pretty big five pieces to forty calories seven grams of fat six grams of fiber grams of protein eight smart points I feel like I have to look at it and tell myself it's forty eight calories apiece because to forty s intimidating for it's like a miniature hop pocket that's so it is it's like the world's cutest little pocket it's so good Manuchehr mythology that is really really good here's the thing this is not an everyday food for me this is like a treat food that I taste at work I probably wouldn't have it at my house but it's it's not a bad option especially if you have kids it's a good snack for them it's not unhealthy it's not overly high in
All about TMAO with W.H. Wilson Tang, MD
"All right in today's episode we we are with Dr Tang from Cleveland Clinic. I am beyond honored to have after Tang on the podcast. He is absolutely brilliant and I cannot appreciate appreciate more tank taking the time busy busy schedule to talk with us about. Tma Island off the research is not so thank you Dr Tank for joining us. Oh thank you Danielle pleasure to be here. Thank you so I I would want free to just introduce yourself and tell everyone kind of about what do and what your work is a cardiologist researcher well. I'm actually a heart transplant cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic and my day job I see patients with heart failure and trying into identify potential courses and trying to delay the progression and if unfortunately they get worse I try to see where what we could do with mechanical devices or transplants and then actually take care of them after wits so obviously that's very different from my research were which is trying to prevent that from happening it is too many people heading towards the same cliff and we definitely need to find ways to prevent ben from developing heart disease and more importantly heart failure absolutely and your research is is just outstanding. We'll everything you do is incredible. The heart failure and transplant is obviously very amazing aspect because so much is changing with our different not only medical therapies irby's but now with transplant and some of the mechanical circulatory support so it's really a dynamic changing an unbelievable feel. Your research is so groundbreaking and fascinating to me so I would love if you could give everyone. There's a lot of physicians scientists and Science Lovers listened to my podcast and a lot of them are interested interest in the work you did so. I'd love if you could kind of give an overview just starting kind of about what tm Ao is an and your work and how it relates to cardiovascular disease sure so I've always been fascinated by how heart how the heart interacts with other organs and in particular the kidneys and so for a long time I've been working with a different researchers to look at how the heart and the kidney interacts and my translational research has actually headed towards that direction early on where we were trying to find molecules in the blood that distinguish between those who progress develop you know kind of the events versus those who do not aw and early on I measured a lot of small molecules that we actually know to have kind of aspirations something like the adm a is symmetric saw Janine which is really an endogenous Netra. I'll say synthase inhibitor and also different small molecule metabolite so that's actually actually where I started looking at oxidative stress and nitrogen stress and how you know kind of using blood and urine we could actually detect early triggers that can can help us identify. You Know Progressive Diseases so we have this kind of. I did that potentially many unknown substances in the blood at also tell the same story and when we first started we have a mass SPEC machine that could identify different small molecule us and we have samples of patients who subsequently develop diseases that we have collected early on with a control group of those who did not develop disease so we actually try it over and over again using different incase controlled comparisons to look at a vast array of molecules small molecules usually under like a hundred Dalton and so America weight a hundred and trying to figure out you know these sma- accused whether they could distinguish patients who have events versus don't have events events and as you imagine when we keep going this case control you know comparison over and over again using different cohorts of samples we ended up saving down filtering down you know less and less number molecules until we hit about eighteen of them only after like multiple secessions off ah case controlled comparisons and so that actually seeps out from thousands of molecules through eighteen but then they all kind of in molecular weight the we actually don't know what they are art we knew one or two of them but we didn't know the rest and and so it's a hard work of a few postdoctoral fellows from Dr Stan Heathens lab that started working on literally figuring out the permutation combination of these potential compounds and then of course we have to validate date them as you can imagine many many difference. Amok you have to say molecular weight so if you think about it literally doing trial and error at that point that was it's kind of a hectic work but then we we certainly find three molecules in these eighteen that seemed to be correlating into each other and we were very perplexing what they are so we actually focus assets in looking in a band and it turns out the all having a Trimbe Isao group so three mess me sell that linked to link together and one of them seem to be a by product that is conversion version by humans but it was generated by bacteria in the literature so that's how we actually you know mentally got into the whole field of Gut microbiome grown obviously never predicted that this is going to happen but we started to be able to specifically identify the NFL which was try Michel and and Tommy fell and oxide superbeets I mean and so this is actually how we act on that and so after that we have you know obviously other samples that had long term outcomes and we started to kind of off generate and the perspective cohort of patients who we know over time had you know so a number of people have diseases and we started added to you know analyze those ampoules identify independently identify the pro value of Cameo in those cohorts which which was independent of all the traditional sectors and to demonstrate that indeed it may be a causative factor we have to turn to animal role models and conveniently the most model that we had had the bacteria and got that produces a good amount of tm that with your Mayo we learn about subsequently because some mouse actually don't have those bacteria that makes him a which becomes very very convenient for us otherwise but we the most common laboratory mouse list electric miles and in fact it does generate a lafayette meal when they were Fed with choline rolling diet chain a really comes from bacteria consumption of substrates that we the food that we eat every day so anything anything with me saw groups that they could actually use as food the bacteria used as food. ended up generating this torturing us. I protocol brought a copy emmy which it goes into the blood and through the liver and deliver. I should convert it to Tamil so the foods that are most post high in choline and carnitine which are the precursors when they go through the microbiome to go from t t mail so these you find find highest in you would say things like eggs and at red meat yeah meat liver. You know things that actually have high cholesterol electro. It's kind of some people even called it the third cholesterol and it is something that that the other thing that we as cardiologists tell patients to avoid for good balanced diet half high choline content now just be aware that choline is important some people. I feel quite strongly that in early development we do need cold into a precursor for Coleen which obviously is important for neural zero development so that's why it's actually Africa as a supplement for pregnant women and actually consumption guidelines guidelines for that and some older patients also use Coleen for that purpose thinking that they may actually help with reducing cognitive decline fine except that obviously the data there is not very strong but I think it is important to recognize this is where we found out later and improbably interesting to your audience that another compound that is common in foot- groups is commenting which is a meet and red meat in particular and that certainly has a different type of enzymes in different types of bacteria that convert the connotation into and subsequently lead to production of TM L. so I think that's where we have the the a unique opportunity to truly understand what the environment in this case that dietary intake and different food groups particularly meet and how that impact the body's response and also the metabolites produce when eating red meat. I not eating red yeah. That's fascinating and so when did you start to make the connection between TMA. Oh and Athar Genesis Platelet let aggregation atherosclerosis things like this yeah. This is actually quite early. Once we actually got the animal models going recognized at the mouth that we use indeed indeed when eating Choline fossils you're calling in particular lead to production of Cameo. Obviously we were able oh to start using the mouse model to look at after genesis so what we do is we were able to feed the mouse with without the choline content in detail and then this is the type of mouse flex most at more prone to development of Roma. This is so call eight now mice and so studies have actually shown that with like accelerated girls and and interestingly when we were well we were able to demonstrate firstly the bacteria is involved in this by giving both anybody and see whether the the cameo levels go down which they do but also for germ free mice when they don't have any gut flora where we did them choline lean diet they don't generate male or female but then when the mouse was exposed to kind of you know the the wild meaning they start doc accumulating gut bacteria `timeo production increases and the presence of this elevation leads to more through through ask the Roma and they order and when we give short-term anybody with a triple regimen something that you know stays in the bow for the four the mice we actually found that is attenuated. All these really have a direct cost-effective this now we could demonstrate you know almost like the cost postulate that we learn in in infectious disease microbiology that the presence of the bacteria is essentially making the metabolite and obviously tm AOL is also present some food particularly fish and seafood the task you I I was this is like the number one question to ask. You is in a preformed. TM In fish does this raise your humans ends and if so is a rise from that form of TMA. Oh bad for us it actually it does in fact if you actually have you you know just otherwise healthy individuals eat a wide variety of food which people have done experiments on that the the main food component that leads doue transient rise and fall and cameo is dish and particularly but not off fish half the email. You think Judy Logically Cameo. Oh is made by the muscles of the fish particularly deep sea fish because changes the melting of the the freezing point of the muscles. I was actually the muscles antifreeze so it provides a protection for the deep sea fish so that's why doesn't look like the fish in the freezer it actually make make make sufficient up freeze and so so impact people have done a lot of work in marine green biology on on this and in fact the enzymes made in fishes muscles that actually convert TMA os well alm aw generate and also eliminate because when fish you know moves from Coda to warmer waters. Actually some of this also changed so we actually actually know that not auditions created equal to not only from cameo levels but also their fish oil levels so you actually measured him. Ill level in say you know lake fish will Shallow Water Trish they actually timmy levels are quite low in back some of them. Are you know non you know very very low. Concentrations whereas deep sea fish like called and like you know a fish that we actually tuna in you know or

"Smith Irby was definitely one of our most requested guests dude, and I would like to request that she she is so. Leiria she's the best and so wonderful and I learned so I did. I did too. I'm like now candle. Fainting Kate. Your intention last week was to watch more television? Yep. How did that go? I didn't watch much TV, but that was because I had been binging so much Handmaid's tale. It was starting to have nightmares, and I had to take a break I'm about to get back into tonight oak. But I felt like I felt so good about myself that I was able to participate in a conversation with. Then I also went around asking every person I know if they watch him to just so I could have like engage in a social conversation. But I feel like I've kind of putting a list together of shows that I really wanna watch. Good. I'm going to check out clause. I'm gonna check. I need to watch killing eve, my husband yelling to watch that. And then there's stuff like haven't even started Atlanta. There's so many shows I need to catch up insecure. I've got a lot of work to do in my show watching area. I just want you to start thinking about it as work, not work, but I more carving out time for me to relax and watch. There we go. That's what it is like finish up my nighttime chores. Yeah. So that I end like get. Off my phone because I think what I'm doing. I'll sit and look at rescue dogs on Instagram for forty, five minutes when I could be watching TV show. I am trying to look at my phone when I watch TV, which is hard hard, but then you actually understand what's going on. Sometimes I actually find it better in terms of concentration to watch it on my laptop. That's interesting. Yeah, maybe I'll try that. How is your podcast hunting going? It's going. Okay. Listen to a couple episodes of podcasts that I don't wanna name because I didn't end up loving it. As a called forever. Thirty five and it's called forever thirty five. So we need to talk. But no, I did, but I did give did give new pockets try and I went back and listened to some of my old. You know, some caught up on some that that I love like death, sex and money in reply all just kind of old standby. So I'm still going to be exploring new podcasts. I'd like to, I think I mentioned this last week, can't remember, but I would like to listen to some more conversational. Yeah, I think I did talk about this. Not just narrative. Yeah, not just like journalism, not like very produced journalism podcasts, which I love. Those are kind of like the ones I go to, but I also because we have a conversation about when he would like to hear others, so I, I will continue to seek those out. Can I tell you I started to new podcast as you start while one is conversational, but it's a fish related podcast. Okay. I don't think you're gonna want to check out. It's called under the scales. And then I also it's a great name when it fish Lear sisters host. It's really interesting, but then I also started it's a narrative podcast about a cult which wants called the gateway. Okay. Have you listened to that? You know, I tried listening tried Heaven's Gate, didn't love it. Okay. We'll try the gateway. All right. See if that. No, you're, you're, you're branching out from that arena. But I mean, who who doesn't a cult pod Kyle of cope podcast. So this week, your intention? Yes. Is something you've. Already done. My intention is to go to the gym. You've accomplished it. I have accomplished it, but you know, I'd like to accomplish it more. Are you setting like a set goals for how many times you wanna go? Okay. Just get to the gym, just get to the gym, just kind of get to know the gym. Go swimming, embryo transfer next week. So I'd like to kind of explore very low impact things that I can do in the two weeks after the transfer is swimming. Something you can do. I think you can do like very low impact swimming.
