A highlight from Episode 72: A Catholic and Protestant talk about Purgatory and Indulgences
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial, and create a space for healing. Hey guys, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. Today we are doing another Protestant verse Catholic episode and we're going to be talking about purgatory and indulgences. Yeah, and before we start, we want to clarify that we will be talking about like the official doctrine because obviously like there could be a whole other topic like the history of abuses in this, especially in like the medieval era, but I think in order to have a good faith discussion, we have to actually go to like what is the actual doctrine, what is the official belief and custom, not ways it's been misused or abused. If you want to talk about a church history of like, oh different, like how this has like shifted and changed, like that would be like a whole other conversation. So we will just be talking about the actual doctrine and belief of purgatory Protestant Catholic perspectives, but going from what the Catholic position actually is, not what it maybe looked like at different points in history. Or how it was like being practiced in the church, which obviously we no longer, it is wrong and always has been wrong to sell indulgences. And I think there's been a lot of like yeah misunderstanding of what purgatory is, what it means, and then in turn what indulgences actually do. So we will get into that in this episode as well. And then Megan will also be responding for the more like Protestant view. So yeah, I guess I can start with, we'll start with purgatory. And what is the actual teaching of purgatory? So I think one of the most like misunderstood concepts of purgatory is that after you die, like purgatory is somewhere that you go where it's not decided yet. Like once you're in purgatory, maybe you could still go to heaven or hell and you need to like earn or like get better or clean yourself up or figure out what like what you want or I don't know before or God will judge like but it's a waiting period where you could end up in hell or you could end up in heaven. And that is not the teaching. I'm going to read officially from the catechism but purgatory is for those that are already saved. They are going to be going to heaven. They will not be damned to hell. They are found to be within friendship with God among the elect that will be going to heaven. And let me find the official church, church teaching. This is catechism number 1031. The church gives the name purgatory to the final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned. That's from the Council of Florence and the Council of Trent. The church formulated her doctrine of faith on purgatory, especially at the Council of Florence and Trent. The tradition of the church by reference to certain texts of scripture speaks of a cleansing fire. As for certain lesser faults we must believe that before the final judgment there is a purifying fire. He who is true says that whoever utters blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will be pardoned neither in this age nor in the age to come. From this sentence we understand that certain offenses can be forgiven in this age but certain others in age to come.

A highlight from Episode 71: Finding Common Ground Between a Catholic and a Protestant? What We Can Agree On.
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard or controversial, and create a space for healing. Hey, everyone, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. Today, Jackie and I will not be arguing for once. We will be doing something a little different and talking about where Catholics and Protestants agree and where we can find common ground. Jackie, do you have any thoughts before we get started? No, I think it's a good episode, because I feel like we do mostly just see Protestant versus Catholic online and people arguing. And also, I think that a lot of Catholics and Protestants on both sides forget that there are things that we have in common that we can unite on. And I think that's especially important in this increasingly secular and anti -religion, anti -God world. I remember that Trent Horn and Gavin Ortlund talks about that. They were on a podcast together. So I think it is really important to remember those things, because in a lot of ways, we're uniting together against a world that is very anti -Christian. For sure. Yeah. And even on our podcast here, because we talk about like our differences a lot. And like, that's good. I think those conversations are like really important. And those differences small. aren't They're important, but we do have a lot that we agree on. And I would say like the foundation like core of our faith is the same, which is why we can recognize each other as a Christian and have unity that way. So I don't think we can actually like bridge that gap and be truly ecumenical unless we are willing to recognize that and the other. So yeah, I think it's a good, good conversation to have. I'm just gonna say we do have differences. And I know it's important to recognize those things. But we I feel like we do address those enough. So I think it's okay to every once in a while, focus on what we have in common. Yeah, I remember we did an episode last year, a year ago. It was like our favorite things about the other. And like, that was really fun to kind of talk about, like what we appreciate in the other tradition. So yeah, changing it up a little. I know when I was like thinking about this, it really is like, the core like foundation we agree on. And I would say like the things that you have to believe in order to be Christian, we agree on, you know, the Trinity, like very important and very unique of the Christian faith that we have a Trinitarian God, like we would both like reject modalism or tritheism, where like God is just like appearing in different modes, or actually having three gods. And like, that's very unique, even in other like monotheistic religions, like Islam, for example, it's not a Trinitarian God. So I think or Mormonism is like, it's not a Trinitarian God. So I think that's like a very unique common ground that Catholics, Protestants, even like Eastern Orthodox, kind of come back to as like our views on like God's nature, himself, his attributes, who he is.

"Well, here we are, episode 123. In for my friend Todd Sorkin, aka Big Head Todd the Wet Sprocket. That's 100 plus 23 equals 123. His head is so big, yet his brain is so small. Anyway, on this episode, The Wrecking Two is back in action. Full force tonight. We will be talking about the year 1965. I don't think we've ever gone back this far. Talking about the music and the movies. Nice little addition, people like it. Of 1965, so sit back, relax, stop making your peace signs, because that was right around the corner. Enjoy the show.

Sometimes I can kind of get it in there, just kind of ... Just own it. He has officially owned it. His head is bulbous. He's got a bulbous head. Speaking of bulbous, it's time Mark Smith from the ... Rolling Stone, Penalty Box, right off the bat. See that?

Let's bring him on. What do you want to get tortured for now? Mark Smith. You got the F bomb in the first three minutes. Come on. It's your fault. It's your fault, and it's Lou's fault. Oh, did I say that when Lou came before he came, or after he came out? Lou didn't hear that. Look at Lou. He's got that notebook. This is the Jackie Brown thing you're talking about. That's the movie. Quentin Tarantino movie. San Quentin Tarantino. Oh, Jesus. I think he did Pulp Fiction, right? Oh, you know what? You're in. Again. I agree. Put him away. I think. I think. Pulp Fiction was up for Best Picture. It got robbed. It got robbed by fucking, what was it, Training Day, I think. Beat it that year. Oh, okay. Which is just another bad cop movie. Were you lucky enough to see Pulp Fiction before the hype? Oh, dude. Are you kidding me? Oh, yeah. Me too. Multiple times in the theater. One of the only movies I've ever seen. I think I saw it in the movie theater four or five times. I couldn't get enough of it. I just heard. Oh, I forgot Lou. I just heard John Travolta's back. And so I go see this movie, right? And I had no idea what I was in for. Man, that was good. I didn't see Reservoir Dogs. I didn't know anything about Quentin. Wow. What a surprise when I saw that. I saw it when it first came out there. I saw it with my in -laws. My very old school Italian conservative in -laws. They were kind of. My mother -in -law was a little. She was pretty cool. My father -in -law was pretty uptight about it. Especially the hillbilly scene. Oh, in Pulp Fiction? Oh, yeah. Yeah. That was something I didn't see coming. When I opened that door, that's not what I thought. Hell no. I was going to say. I don't think anybody thought that.

A highlight from What Is Trump Coin? - Safemoon Tacos - Hundred Coin - Degen Dungeon
"What's up, Discover Crypto? I'm Jackie Dutton, mother of degens, first of her name, and queen of the shitcoin kingdom. It's been a glorious week of green candles and great news for crypto, and I know that you little degenerates are just itching to throw some profits into a potential 1000x dumpster fire. So I'm going to break down a couple for you, some of them that you so kindly recommended in the comments last week. I will add some of my own colorful commentary of course, and we will see if these deserve a pump or a dump. Good? Good. Let's get into it. First up, this token is the greatest token, much better than any other tokens. I saw this token and I thought, wow, this is a great token. A token hoping to make Ethereum great and not the mega token, which also exists, but it's trash. Let's not talk about them. No, this glorious token is named after 45 himself, the Trump token, with the ticker actually being Trump. Of course, his name is on it. His name is on more things than lawsuits right now, if that's possible. If you're looking to own a based token that also does some good, this is one of the ways is the tokenomics use half of their 1 % buy and sell tax to donate to Operation Underground Railroad to help stop human trafficking of children and disabled American veterans. I'm not sure how protecting children and helping veterans became causes of the far right, but welcome to 20 and 23. I hate it here. On their website, megatrumpeth .com is also President Trump's real Ethereum address if you would like to donate to his campaign directly. I am sure that he would say thank you if he wasn't currently being fined for violating a gag order every time he opens his mouth. The heads of the project are Sean Farish and Steven Steele, and they host weekly Trump Twitter spaces on Tuesdays at 8 p .m. $100 buys you over 2 ,500 tokens and currently the 30 -day chart of this token is looking a lot better than Biden's approval ratings. So let's make crypto great again, guys. I would pump this. I will also pump cyanide into my veins if we have to deal with four more years of this shit. Next up, thanks to samsung -jn55 in the comments of last week's video is our next token. Do you ever feel like the only thing that would make Bitcoin better is if it were truly anonymous? Because nothing assures skeptics and the government that you are not using crypto for a sketchy purpose like privacy coins. Truthfully, I feel bad for even talking about this coin here. For starters, it's not a token, it's an actual coin. It is proof of work instead of the typical DJIN POS. And no, that doesn't stand for proof of stake with the tokens I usually talk about. Bitcoin -Z is a proof of work coin that you can mine that is like anonymized Bitcoin. It was launched by an anonymous developer and it is completely decentralized. Its all -time chart shows that it's currently down 99 % from its former all -time high, so either it's a really good buy or a really dumb one. Honestly, this looks like one of those projects that did really well before the 2021 meme coin NFT metaverse hype took over. So let me know in the comments if you think that proof of work will see a resurgence in the next bull run, especially since Bitcoin received so much Greta Thunberg backlash for being bad for the environment. Which is a lie, by the way. You know what sucks way more fossil fuels for its usage than Bitcoin's entire blockchain? YouTube. You're on it. You're killing the earth. But also, smash that like button. We now interrupt this episode of DJIN Stensions to bring you a special segment from our Weather Girl. Yes, as you can see, we have some strong winds developing in a system delivering a major red flag warning for all SafeMoon holders. The official Clusterfuck system began forming a few weeks back when their CEO issued a public statement in their Discord that the LP does not belong to the holders, stating that they are also not investors in the company products. Since this system began forming, it has caused a massive drought, leaving the Treasury wallet bone dry. In an effort to ease the drought, it has been raining nothing but merch on this moon, though. Merch that you must use fiat to purchase or anything other than SafeMoon. But it won't be used to restore the liquidity. So a voluntary evacuation has begun on the chart, as the climate is simply unsustainable for life. Any word from their CEO about why the liquidity pool wouldn't belong to the holders? So far, no. Just a post about Taco Tuesday and spending the equivalent of 381 ,000 tokens to eat on one meal. There has been an update from their former Chief Marketing Officer, though, in which he is posting excerpts from an upcoming book he's writing about his experience working at SafeMoon. 381 ,000 tokens for tacos. SafeMoon, fighting to be the next Venezuelan Boulevard.

Yeah yeah my parents died and not for me that was never a thing that my parents cared about or like were wary of so yeah I mean we celebrated it in a very like just classic American way where we would dress up and go trick -or -treating yeah there was never really any weird I don't know like spiritual side like I don't dangerous spiritual side to things which we'll get more into but yeah what about I grew up just doing like the fun like I don't know as kids you like dress up you know trick -or -treating all of our neighbors were like elderly so they like paid it up they were like yes yeah but because I was very much immersed in American evangelical conservative culture most of my friends did not celebrate Halloween and I got judged like very harshly for it. Yeah I mean I found there's like there is a difference I have seen some Catholics that are of Halloween but there's even a difference between yeah American evangelicalism and Catholic Catholicism when it comes to Halloween which we will get into more with that as well because while Megan and I both do think it is permissible to celebrate Halloween as a Christian we also have different - Spoiler alert!

"Deaths in the city that includes 17 pedestrians and two bicyclists. The increasing death toll comes despite Vision Zero. That's DC's eight -year plan to make roadways safer with investments in things like bicycle lanes, lowering speed limits and new speed cameras. There have been nearly 20 robberies recently along a popular trail locally in Northeast DC and police say this morning they've made an arrest. We were able to locate and identify one of the suspects and apprehend him. He's been placed under arrest. An 18 -year -old suspect is now in custody in connection with 18 robberies along the Metropolitan Branch Trail, a popular place for bikers and joggers, DC Police Commander Sylvan Altieri. We've had a series of robberies in this area for over a month either on the bike trail or in the streets surrounding it. He says some were armed robberies where the suspect did have a gun.

How you feeling if it's Mike Johnson? You know, I'm really fixated on the exchange, the text exchange you and I had where I said most people don't care. And that seemed to shock you. You know, I wonder if people are talking about Mike Johnson over the breakfast table this morning. Who the heck is Mike Johnson? I know. Well, yeah, you know because you're a talk show host and you're paid to know. I know about the obscurity. But that's the disconnect because, you know, I saw you posted on X the other night. Well, you know, here's why I like Beau Schmiel from Wisconsin and I like Mike Johnson a little better than I'm thinking. Nobody cares about any of these people. Just get it done and get it over with. Weren't you? But there's a friend of mine who has a radio show who had quite the righteous conniption fit about 24 hours ago. And it was a high quality conniption fit and it was righteous and it was proper because we didn't get the speaker that you wanted or that I wanted. Are you telling me that speaker that the speakerships not important or that once it gets into folks whose names aren't quite so front of mind that everybody's eyes glaze over? I'm still ticked off. I'm in the middle of the conniption fit. It's this is a clown show and they they've embarrassed themselves. They've totally they've and they've hurt 2024. There's no question about it. Now, the question is how badly how much damage will be done? I'm going to count on the Mark Davis rule about short attention spans and hope that we get over this once we get, you know, Bill Schmiel of Albuquerque to be the speaker. He's about to be very, very he's 10 times more famous this morning than he was yesterday and soon to be even more so. And the other thing he's going to do is it is indeed I mean, who was even running that anybody really had ever heard of? I mean, I guess we had some Pete Sessions national familiarity just beyond the state of Texas. But yeah, it was a lot of folks other than Jim Jordan, who and everybody knew Scalia's, of course, but that seems like a hundred years ago now. And everybody knew Jim Jordan. But nobody knows Mike Johnson. That's right. They're about to. They're about to. But nobody cares. You're trying to make people care. And I'm telling you, I know people I know this audience and I think those people people's eyes are glazing over and they're saying, OK, great. So what is so what is if they don't have familiarity with all that with with Shreveport attorney and the other great thing, former talk show host. We like that anyway, though. But if they do this, Mike Johnson has a talk show in Louisiana. That's correct. Oh, OK. Well, there you go. I love it. What if he's a fisherman? I wonder what he does. What if he goes bowling on Saturday night? Nobody gives a rat's rear end about Mike Johnson. OK, specifically by name, perhaps not. But do we care about having a conservative fighter? Yes. We care about it not being an establishment toady. Are we pleased that it's not Tom Emmer? Yes. Then get over it and well, I'm not. Oh, this is going to be great. I got nothing to get. I got nothing to get over. It's not great that we're still figuring it out. They got to solve it. And when they solve it, we'll turn the page. It'll be fine. Well, of course it will. And that's what I'm saying, that nobody cares. It's not the end of the world. And nobody really cares about any talk show host's analysis of Bill Schmiel versus Mike Johnson. What got to you yesterday? What got to you yesterday? It was a reality. This is weird. This is kind of weird. I guarantee you people are agreeing with me on this. I mean, really, do you think people are sitting around agonizing over Mike Johnson? Not agonizing, but he happens to be the repository of conservative hopes for the House. Today? Exactly. He's number nine. He's about the ninth one on the list. I mean, they're all dropping like flies. This one appears that it's going to succeed. Oh, this one. You said that about Emmer. You said that about everybody else. I said he looked inevitable. Now, here's the thing. I said he looked inevitable as the designee.
A highlight from Episode 69: The Cult of the Alpha Male: Andrew Tate and the Red-Pill Movement An Interview with John Bloedel
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard or controversial, and create a space for healing. Well, hey, everyone, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. Today we are joined by John, who is my husband, and we are going to be talking today about the phenomenon of red pilled men and the cult of the alpha male. So John, before we start, do you want to just tell our listeners and watchers a little about who you are? Yeah, I am obviously married to Megan. I'm a digital marketer for Live Action, which is a pro -life media organization. I'm currently working on my Masters of Divinity from Moody Theological Seminary, which I should be graduating in the spring with my full MDiv. So really excited for that. And in armchair for enthusiasm internet culture broadly. And so this is something that I feel is a bit idiosyncratic for a Christian man to know a lot about. But it's something that has in recent months become really kind of a big deal when it comes to the conversations between men and women specifically within Christianity. So yeah, that's a bit about me. I like to online culture. And Christians, especially Christians in ministry is rather like two roads that don't really meet. A lot of pastors or priests are very not familiar with internet culture. Even like youth pastors who are working with younger generations are not always super adept at internet culture. So I think it is a unique crossover. But for people who aren't familiar at all, what is the red pilled movement? And how did it start? Yeah, that's kind of a big question because because it's internet culture, it's completely decentralized. You might be familiar with the term red pilled used in kind of its memetic way where it's used sarcastically for someone that has socially a inept opinion or is kind of a radical in some way. But right now, if it's used as a signifier of a movement, if someone is using it like red pilled male or alpha male, it's most likely in reference to a movement that has been around for quite some time actually. The red pill movement is kind of apparent to a movement called MGTOW, which is an acronym for men going their own way. MGTOW got started on the heels of kind of the rad femme movements in the early 2000s. This was very like web 2 .0, early internet culture, I think the forum is actually still around for it. And this movement was men basically checking out from society, checking out from relationships with women, as well. It was very much rooted in this idea that as much as society was trying to focus on women's struggles, men still bore the brunt. This is not me saying this, this is their position. The idea that, you know, if you look at the statistics, men still make up 95 % of workplace workplace deaths and injuries. Men, by and large, get ignored by the court systems and divorce, they lose custody. Men, by and large, don't actually get as much social welfare as women do. They experience heavier sentencing when it comes to criminal trespasses, and on and on it goes. And so the MGTOW movement was this idea that as society tries to focus more on women, men need to focus more on themselves and check out and focus on their own needs instead. This kind of also coincided with the men's rights activists movement, which was concerned with a lot of the same things. It was less radical, and it was a bit more egalitarian. But this was very much what was in the air in kind of mid to late 2000s into the early 2010s. And then the red pill movement kind of comes along and explodes all of this into being less of a third way -ism, a different way that men could interact with society, which was kind of more quiet reserved, just checking out from things and focusing on themselves, to actively hostile and actively rejecting what would be considered social orthodoxy, where society says men and women are equal, red pill says men and women are not equal. Men are smarter, men are stronger. Men should use this to their advantage in every way. The red pill movement in that way is obviously very misogynistic and very sexist. A lot of people would tend to argue it's not, and that making that accusation shows you don't understand it. But that's just coping for the reality of the situation. It's kind of that double thing that's there, because they do understand that they are swimming in the wake of the MGTOW movement, and they're attempting to say, well, men have been put upon for so long, and society doesn't care about men's issues. So we're going to finally start caring about ourselves. So to a certain degree, if you question this within the halls of kind of the accepted red pill orthodoxy, people will just kind of assume you hate men, people will assume you don't really care about men, and they'll say, okay, well, you know, we're finally standing up for ourselves. And so you don't want us to be happy. No, it's just very, just because we don't hold the idea that men should be ascendant socially and use and abuse women doesn't necessarily make you a sexist. So it's, it's very difficult to disconnect it from the overblown and rather melodramatic claims of men's rights activists and the men going their own way movement, because that's very much where its roots are. That was a lot. I'm like completely foreign to this whole world. I feel like I'd never heard the term men's rights activists just until now. I, I feel like I only started to see or understand this movement at all with the introduction of Andrew Tate, which I don't really know a ton about him, even just that apparently he's not a great guy. But I've even seen some Christians. I have heard all this terrible, all these terrible things about him, but then some Christians are promoting him. So what is the deal with Andrew Tate and how he's connected to all of this? So this is an area where my expertise in internet culture actually pays dividends. I've been following Andrew Tate's stuff for three or four years now. So Andrew Tate, his personal history is him and by extension, his brother Tristan Tate got their start in international kickboxing. So they were martial artists and they were, they were good at that. They won money doing that. They are genuinely talented in that area. But I mean, cutting to the quick, they are both sex trafficking, abusive men who should be buried under the prison. They, they are not good people. They are arrogant, bordering on sociopathic liars, narcissists, and manipulators. And the way that Andrew Tate is connected to all of this is after he got out of the martial arts world, he started running scams online under the name Cobra Tate. That was his Twitter account. When I first found him in late 2019 and his website, you'll hear a lot about a hustlers university. And you'll hear a lot of them talking about their webcam business, which is actually what they're being investigated for and charged with and tried for right now is they were sex traffickers and pornographers. So, but that was only one part of what he offered on his website. His website was actually very strange and oddly schizophrenic. It offered all sorts of bizarre trainings, one of which was like this weird military training where he was alleging that he could train people how to be some type of elite special forces unit. It's it was very strange, but the biggest part of it that he was selling was this hustlers university, which was effectively a crypto scam combined with how to abuse women into making webcam pornography for you to sell online. And I'm sure you're thinking how does this turn into the red pill? A major part of the red pill is actually marketing because the way that Andrew Tate exploded onto the scene because I was following him this entire time just because I thought he was funny and you know. So what he did was he used a decentralized marketing plan. So he used about a thousand followers back when shorts were still kind of a new thing in terms of internet culture like TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. And part of his hustlers university was he was offering bonuses to followers of his who would start their own YouTube channels and repost shorts of his appearances on these podcasts, which is by and large where most people first saw him. They were short form video content of him saying bombastic things about women, bombastic things about sex, bombastic things about the power of masculinity. So he actually rose to fame in the red pill kind of manosphere movement because of marketing. And that's kind of how the misogynistic podcast personality became an ascendant part of this culture. It's part of the reason why you've kind of seen even Christians dealing with this because this very much did come out of nowhere and it is it is impossible to understand the red pill without short form video content because of how Andrew Tate used it. It was very much a scam. It was very much a marketing plan and it played on again this feeling of unfairness that certain men had and this idea that if you kind of bandage the wounds of the man that has been put upon that he would kind of become loyal to you. So Andrew Tate specifically who's kind of the number one guy for that movement 100 % marketing, 100 % a scam artist. So I can understand where like you were saying men who feel like they've been wronged by society or maybe have not had a women would be like drawn to someone like Andrew Tate who is like saying these very extreme things. But I think what confuses me is when Christian men are drawn into this. So what do you feel like is fueling the interest in the manosphere among especially Christian men specifically? I think being reactionary is broadly always going to feel more cathartic than attempting to be constructive. In that way I think a lot of Christian conservative men look at almost anyone who is not liberal and I'm not saying red pill is conservative either. It's just anyone who's not liberal even anti -liberal they view them as co -travelers which is I don't need to tell you that's dumb. Don't do that. And so what happens is anyone who's saying well you know third wave fourth wave feminism oh it's cancerous to men. Wow. So brave. That's not something that's worthy enough for us to travel together when we're attempting to do something new. So I think for a lot of conservative Christian men they suffer from the same issues that the MGTOW men had which is they view a society that is increasingly hostile towards biblical masculinity and biblical femininity for that matter and they think that anything that is anti -liberal is going to assist them in you know this battle. And it's not going to obviously because the biblical model of masculinity and the biblical model of femininity cannot be affirmed by people who have an axe to grind against the other sex. That's just never going to be possible. And what are Christian's responses I'm just curious too you were saying that he was manipulating women into producing webcam pornography and all of these awful things that are just very blatantly against Christianity. What is their response to these Christian men that are following Andrew Tate or are supporting Andrew Tate? I would say one half of them obviously just don't know. I don't believe ignorance is an excuse but obviously it should weigh in the balance if someone genuinely doesn't know and immediately goes oh I feel embarrassed now I'm gonna you know put my hand over my mouth in embarrassment and I'll never do it again okay fine whatever. I'd say the other half I actually wrote an article about this on my medium. The other half are willing to condemn the bad things about him but are kind of saying let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Okay right they're saying I believe one tweet I reference in my article says he calls men to a kind of excellence but it's a truncated form of excellence. No he doesn't. He doesn't call anyone to form of excellence. He's a degenerate pervert trafficker, a violent trafficker at that. If you actually read the court documents which I have that he's this it's it's a smoking gun that he was abusive. When I say trafficking I mean that in the real sense of the word. He was keeping women from leaving a compound. He he literally had women in prison. So again the worst of the worst and so it's one of these instances where it's either ignorance of the situation because they didn't sacrificing the good things that there are and the simplest response this is to go you shall know them by their fruit. There's how are you forgetting that basic principle of this? This is nothing but bad fruit. You don't need a big name personality to make your point for you. Make your point and then move on. Don't try and yoke yourself to someone like everything that he says is happening was happening which Tucker Carlson gave him a platform which was just despicable and that's where a lot of Christian men got their first interaction with Andrew Tate and he simply lied the entire time about what he did. But even if this was some massive conspiracy that he was the victim of it wouldn't change the fact that he admits and talks about being a womanizer. He admits and talks about making money off of producing pornography. He admits and talks about having multiple partners being the normal way that men are. If you think that there's anything good in that movement to affirm I'm I'm not going to listen to you and frankly I think you should probably stop talking. What is it that he's saying that they feel like like when you're saying don't throw the baby out with the bathwater what is it that they feel has merit or that is good just that men should be masculine? Right and that that's the issue it's men should be masculine because masculinity is what men do and and it's circular reasoning a lot of them won't ever really define what it is because that's the very live cultural conversation that we should be having. What does biblical masculinity look like today? That's a massive conversation that needs to be had what does biblical femininity look like today? That's again a massive conversation that's one not going to be easily marketed on YouTube shorts so you're not going to get any you know massive fame or acclaim for saying it. It's probably going to be rather boring because biblical masculinity is power under control. That's an important thing. One of the things that someone like Jordan Peterson who I've warmed to over time one of the things that Jordan Peterson talks about is that you know you can't be a man unless you're dangerous but the whole point of becoming dangerous is you're controlling that and that's the point. Grace is power under control but that's not sexy that's not fun that's not getting into cage fights making lots of money and having any woman that you want. Power under control is humility. Humility, self -control, chastity, all of these things they aren't the Samson killing thousands of Philistines with a jawbone kind of testosterone soaked Arnold Schwarzenegger and predator levels of masculinity that we want but these are all broken forms of masculinity and so Andrew Tate comes along and kind of goes well wait societies throughout the millennia have had men that were actually dangerous and it was normative throughout all of history for men to have multiple partners and my response to that is to go you're right we also didn't have penicillin back then. There's a lot of things about the modern era that are better because Christianity came along and fixed them. The ugly truth about the majority of human history having polygamy is because 20 percent of the men had 80 percent of the women. There's a reason eunuchs existed. There's a reason why it is shown to be such an awful thing when David takes Bathsheba and kills Uriah and it's compared to a sheep. This was the way it worked. Women were a good to be consumed. Christianity comes along and makes it that one man and one woman in a chaste marriage is the most important thing for societal cohesion and it's worked and history proves that which is why I'm so confused when Christian men come along and go well Andrew Tate is calling him to a kind of excellence. No he's calling them to degradation of society. Well men should be dangerous. If what you're saying is that hey if you're carrying around an extra 35 pounds after the holiday season go for a run get back into shape so that you could in a pinch defend your wife and kids. Say that. You can say that. That's okay. You can be a bit more humble in what you say. You don't have to come out and agree with everything Andrew Tate says because in his mind masculinity is nothing short of who he is incarnate. He is a consummate narcissist. In his mind unless you've had multiple violent altercations with other men, beaten them, and also had multiple very very grotesque sexual encounters you're not really a man. So it's suffering from a bad view of masculinity and a bad view of femininity at that. I saw that he was on Candace Owens interviewed him like featured him for like a three hour interview. Did you watch that? No I don't watch anything with that because I don't want to give them clicks or reach because I know that's how he got it. Yeah I didn't either but apparently her reaction to him was that he is or her opinion on him is that he's a reaction to a culture or to what is happening in society. And what I think that she's saying is that he is just a reaction to very radical feminism which I think that you kind of mentioned but could you explain more how this movement is connected to I kind of want to revisit the idea of ignorance versus you know half condemnations. I think for a large portion of young men who are taken in by this red pill movement who are younger there is a genuine sense of confusion because what feminism has done specifically the bad kind of feminism has lowered the playing field when it comes to what is societally acceptable. Whereas the original feminism was men act like pigs we're going to call them to better behavior. Now it is men act like pigs so we are free to act like pigs. Additionally the level of equality due to the of madness transgenderism and this idea that gender fluidity is a thing and that yes science actually does say men and women are exactly the same. I think amongst young men there's this failure to comprehend what masculinity is and what grace is which is again it's power under control. And so they're kind of looking at this and going well if women are equal in every single way and they demand to be taken seriously I don't understand how I'm doing anything wrong by just playing the game. I think there's a certain level where a lot of young men have genuinely believed this idea that men and women are equal in the sense that there are no distinctions between them even at the ontological level at the spiritual level there's no distinction.
Breaking the Debt Cycle
"So, so what are, what are we doing? We're, we're predicting the worst and we're not prepared for it. What's happening there? I don't know. You know, I don't know that we're predicting the worst, but we're expecting the worst. That's what the survey said, right? Small business owners are coming up, coming up with these responses and here's the deal again, that, that research that we did also indicated that, you know, small businesses are the backbone of our economy of the U S economy. Now here's, here's a couple of things that shocked me. Small businesses account for 44 % of overall GDP. They account for 50 % of all jobs in our economy are jobs created and utilized in small businesses. And 90 % of all companies are categorized as small businesses in America. We are the backbone of this economy. And the problem is that unfortunately small business owners aren't getting the advice and the attention that they should be getting. And they're not prepared for these things that might be coming down the pike. Right. It's true. I know. I hear that. That's why I'm glad we're having this conversation because this is something that is empowering and that, that we can jump on. Right. So if someone's listening and they're hearing everything that you're saying, the thing themselves, okay, you know, I get it. Is there a, you know, like, is there a starting point? Is there a step that they can take today to start turning the tide in their business? Is there something they should look at? Is there, you know, what, what would you say? Well, so it's, it's hard because think of it this way. We've all been indoctrinated or it's been ingrained upon us to do things a certain way. And the things we've been doing are actually the things that are holding us back. Now here's the conundrum. I'm going to guess, Diane, when you woke up this morning, you didn't look in the mirror and say, I'm going to do my best to screw myself up financially. Right? Yeah. Now, is it, would it be a fair assessment to say that every move you made today and every move you've made in your life financially, you thought was moving you forward? Sure. Okay. If what you thought to be true turned out not to be true, when would you want to know? Now. And that's, so that's the deal. We've been, again, conditioned to, to accept as normal things that are not in our best interest. So it's almost like most are all, I'm not going to say everything, but most are all of the things we're doing with our money are holding us back. Right. Because it proliferates the system, but it's not to our advantage. Now here's the deal. If I wanted to get you to do something that was in my best interest, but not in your best interest, the best way for me to do that is to make you think that it was in your best interest. Right. I can give you an example. Let me give you an example. When you go to the bank and you want to get a mortgage, the fact that there's like eight or 10 different mortgage choices indicates that the bank makes more money on some mortgages than it does on others. Now, wouldn't it be to your advantage to find out which mortgage they make the least on and then, and then go that way? Because if the bank makes the least, that means you make the most, right? Yeah. It's a zero sum game. Right. But so again, the, the focus should be on you being in control of your money. Right. But how does the bank take your eye off the ball? We have been trained as a society when we're shopping for loans to use one criteria and one criteria only. When we shop for loans, what's that criteria? Uh, is it the rate or the monthly payment? No, it's the rate. It's the interest rate. So as soon as we start talking about interest rate, our eye is off the ball. So here's how the bank does it. You go to the bank. Now it's all about cash flow. So you go to the bank, you want to take out a mortgage and you say, you know, I want a 30 year mortgage. And then they show you the HUD statement and let's say the HUD statement is six and a half percent. And the bank shows you the HUD statement and you look, I'm borrowing $200 ,000 and I'm going to pay back $385 ,000 or whatever the number is. And you're like, Oh my God, I'm, I'm, I'm building a, I'm buying a house for myself, but I'm also buying a house for the bank. And the bank says, that's right. Now you want to get that number down, go to a 15 year mortgage. We'll only charge you 6 % and look, now you reduce the interest from 185 ,000 to 125 ,000 and look, we just saved you $60 ,000, but your payment went from, I don't know, let's say 1500 a month to 2100 a month. Now you just lost, you know, more than almost 40 % in additional cashflow and you walk out of there and you think, I really negotiated with them. I got the rate down from six and a half percent to six. And the bank is laughing at you saying, Oh yeah, we gave it to you our way. Right. It was in our best interest because we wanted to get that money back quicker. Right. And so that's the point, you know, and like I said, if you're in a race to get out of debt, all you're doing is sucking up your cashflow. All that's doing is just evaporating your cashflow. Yeah. Yeah. Now this is really Tim. I mean, this is great because it really, you're so right that we've been conditioned and trained to think about it a certain way and it is not serving us. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. This is so valuable. I'm so glad that you have spent this time with me. Will you tell the listeners how they can find you? Yeah. Yeah. So you could come our website.

A highlight from Mike Gallagher Week in Review for Friday, October 20, 2023
"Welcome to The Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review Podcast. I'm Eric Hansen. This is Friday, October 20th, 2023. It's been a busy week, and of course, the demonstrations picked up steam this week as Americans took side in the Israeli -Palestinian conflict. Disturbingly, the pro -Palestinian supporters showed up in numbers in places like Harvard University, as well as many other college campuses. These pro bizarre -Hamas protests that we've seen break out all over the world, particularly in London. Did you see London over the weekend? A lot of European capitals. What's going on over there? And if they have people who say, hey, the Palestinian people have some grievances too. Okay. But it's almost pro, almost it's decidedly pro -terrorism. It's pro -Hamas. Yes. Hey, let me break this down for you. If you're pro -Hamas, you're pro -terrorist. Because there was Joe Biden yesterday saying, well, sort of the extremist element of Hamas doesn't represent, there is no non -extremist element of Hamas. Yeah. I mean, how do you have proportionality over something like this? Andrew McCarthy wrote a great column over the weekend in the New York Post, what proportionality really means in Israel's about the need for proportionality. Oh, really? So should Israel limit itself to raping the precise number of women as Hamas did? Should we just kill precisely the same amount of babies in Gaza as they did? Or elderly non -combatants and young peace concert revelers? What in the hell, pardon my language, the hell is going on with the world and progressives and now progressives calling on us taking in Gaza refugees? I think I'm going to throw this out to you. And I could be dead wrong on this, but, but this is the only thing that makes sense. Anti -Semitism. It has to be a hatred of the Jewish people. And it has to be okay. If a progressive says, if I got to take a side between a Jew and a terrorist, I'm going to side with the terrorist. What else explains it, Mark? There's only one other thing, because I spent a lot of time thinking about this as well. What drives hate? What guides, I mean, what is the reason for hating Jews? The reason for hating blacks, the reason for hating whites, the reason for hating Hispanics, the reason for hating Mormons, whatever. What drives it? And anti -Semitism has historically been, I think a lot of it about envy, a lot of it about suspicion. A lot of it, there are a lot of ancient gripes that might go into people's desire not to process today. But I think some of this is the enemy of my enemy is my friend, or the friend of my enemy is my enemy. Meaning that since, you ever hear Donald Trump say that conservative Christians care more about Israel than a lot of American Jews do? And by the way, he's right about that. So if indeed conservative Christianity is one of the most pro Israeli contingents to be found today, the American left is going to oppose anything that conservative Christians. They must run from that. They must run and you're right. They must say, well, I can't be on the side of what conservatives. Now I will tell you this, a lot of the media, a lot of the American media has been very pro Israel throughout all of this. Bill Maher had a great deal of clarity over this. And yet you still see this weird penchant for proportionality. You know, of course the battle isn't with the Gaza people, the people of Gaza, but Hamas is using the people of Gaza as human shields, including hostages, including some Americans. Mike had a chance to catch up with his friend, podcaster, author, and filmmaker Dinesh D 'Souza this week. His latest movie Police State is coming out and he talked about it on the show. 72 % of likely US voters are concerned that America is becoming a police state. Dinesh, this has happened pretty rapidly. Don't you agree that this has only been within the last few years that we've seen these incredible abuses of the justice system and the judicial system and law enforcement? This has not been years and years and years in the making, has it? Well, the germs of it do go back to the aftermath of 9 -11 when many people, I think Mike, you included, me included, said to the US government, we're willing to grant you these expanded surveillance powers, these expanded police powers, but of course in the expectation that they will be used against foreign terrorists who are trying to kill us, people like the Hamas terrorists that you've been talking about. Now, I think under the Obama administration, there was a shift in which these police agencies of government said, we have all this power, but there's no reason that we have to simply limit it to foreign terrorists. How about if we start going after some domestic political opponents? Now, that began slowly under Obama in kind of an unprecedented period in the last two years. There's been a tremendous escalation so that the FBI and the police agencies have turned their attention to what they now call domestic extremists. And I think this is part of the reason that the US intelligence agencies were clueless about the Hamas attack, because they're not focusing on foreign terrorists anymore. They're focusing on some 70 -year -old grandma who strolled into the Capitol for 10 minutes on January 6th. You know, one of the most high -profile examples of a police state, it seems to me, is when we witnessed in the early morning hours law enforcement raiding Mar -a -Lago, the residence of the 45th President of the United States. We have seen such egregious abuses in the guise of stopping him from becoming reelected. We all know what's going on here, but it seems to me that more and more Americans, Dinesh, are able to recognize what Trump is experiencing, and they're saying to themselves, if they can do this to Donald Trump, they sure as heck can do this to me. Police states, Mike, tend to be one -party states. And that doesn't mean that they don't have any opposition, and it doesn't mean they don't have elections. China has elections. Iran has elections. But the opposition is always controlled. It's subordinate to the regime. Now, with Trump, if they had said that this is unprecedented, but guess what? We've found that he took some classified documents. He pugnaciously held onto them. He refused to turn them back. So we're going to make a single charge against him. But the fact, Mike, that you're dealing with 90 -plus charges and decades and decades in prison, it's very obvious they're using a shotgun approach. Let's get them in DC. If we can't get them in DC, maybe in Florida. If not in Florida, maybe in Georgia. If not in Georgia, then in New York. If we can't get them on the criminal stuff, we'll get them on civil stuff and wreck his business. I mean, this is classic police state thuggery. And we're seeing it blatantly before our eyes. And of course, Dinesh's new movie, Police State, comes out next week. You know, we talked about all the pro -Hamas supporters on college campuses, which got us wondering about those students. They'll all need a job after graduation, right? So would you hire a Hamas supporter at your company? Hi, Jackie. Welcome to The Mike Gallagher Show in the Relief Factor studios. How are you today? I'm good. Thank you. I'm a small company owner down here in Southwest Missouri. And I have to say, I wouldn't hire these kids for sure. And the reason, yes, they're protesting for Palestine. But the problem is it really shows a disconnect with reality. They don't have any ability to research or find their own opinion. They just listen to whatever somebody tells them to think. And that's not somebody I want in my company. If you drop these kids off in Israel and they had to look, like really look at what happened, I guarantee you they're going to think differently. But they've been so sheltered. They've been so sheltered for any type of suffering or any reality. It's just a movie to them, just TV. It's not real. It's like a video game. They don't really realize that young women were raped brutally raped. One of the women carried away as a hostage. You've seen the video. And she has blood all over her pants from where she was raped viciously by these monsters. The videos have been confirmed and the pictures were confirmed of the murdered babies.
A highlight from INSANE Meme Coins for October
"What's up Discover Crypto! I'm Jackie Dutton, mother of degents, first of her name and ruler of the shitcoin kingdom, bringing you some not -so -serious news for a not -so -serious space. Let's get into it. It's officially spooky season, so cue up those unoriginal, recycled ideas of Halloween -themed shitcoins, boo. Say hello to Chucky the Killa token on Ethereum and boasting a 0 % tax for the Chuckonomics. Rest assured, 40 % of the supply will be burning in hell, and promises to be a scammer's worst fear. I'm pretty sure extradition is a scammer's worst fear, but sure, dolls are creepy as fuck. You can buy into the fair launch at your own risk today at 6pm UTC on GemPad, but no promises this one won't shank you. A little international degenerate news. If you are looking to reduce your risk of being scammed in crypto, you might want to move to Ireland, and not just because you'll be too drunk on Bushmills to sign a transaction. Crypto scams have specifically declined in the Blarney Stone country, but unfortunately not for an altruistic reason. Apparently, volume is just so low in crypto that scammers have resorted back to bank fraud. Victims are frequently contacted by phone or email by fraudsters who claim to represent legitimate high -profile British banks or trading houses, which they wouldn't be contacting you anyway. But I guess it's true that you either die in DeFi or live long enough to move back to CeFi. And honestly, the brass balls of people willing to pick up the phone to scam someone? Are you kidding? These people are working way harder in the bear market than anyone ever did in the bull. The article on Cryptopolitan gets better by pointing out that while crypto scams have gone down in Ireland, they have increased in Australia, to the point that one out of every three dollars scammed from Australians has touched crypto at some point. This is also the part where I must unfortunately point out that Australia was started as a country full of criminals. Not a coincidence. We now interrupt the Degen dungeon to bring you a live news report from our field reporter and useless crypto news correspondent, Tupac of Coors. Tupac? Thanks, Jackie. I'm standing here outside Cointelegraph's office where a report has just been tweeted that a Bitcoin spot ETF has finally been approved by the SEC. People are scrambling frantically to confirm this news as the green candle forming on Bitcoin's dangerously high Gensler penetration cross. The team at Useless Crypto News has just obtained live footage of the reported source in question. Tupac, they just confirmed the news is false. It was tweeted out by someone who used an unreliable source. What? As you can see, things have gotten dangerous around here in the streets and on the charts. People are being liquidated everywhere. And if we can cut to Cointelegraph's building right now, you will see a fire has broken out inside the journalism department. We're going to head out for safety. Back to you in the studio, Jackie. Thanks, Tupac. Next up, what do you get when you cross FTX with Solana, a $400 ,000 dare apparently. Thanks to testimony in the FTX trial from Caroline Ellison in which she boasted that FTX routinely turned off the Solana network to favor Alameda's trades, Solana has issued a challenge for anyone to be able to turn off the network with code from its lead developer tweeting the dare himself. You know when Shia LaBeouf tried to play capture the flag on the internet and he swore people wouldn't be able to find the flag. But within 37 hours using only the live stream footage of the flag, flight patterns of the airplanes passing overhead, they'd figured out the location was near Greenville, Tennessee. They then found the flag and replaced it with a MAGA hat. My point is never underestimate the weaponized degeneracy of the internet and 4chan users Solana can't put this genie back in the bottle, but if I were a betting woman, and I am, I would short some soul right now. Up to you, but let me know in the comments if you think that souls blockchain can't be penetrated. I am refraining from a butthole in prison joke right here, but just know it exists. Our last story today is to acknowledge a new honorary deejun and not for his role as balls in the Dumb Money movie. Pete Davidson, serial hot chick dater and SNL cast member recently revealed his newest deejun play is actually VHS tapes. For those of you born after 2006, it's like DVDs with film and this, you know, I just asked Suri. Pete told talk show host Jimmy Fallon that he estimated about 20 years to be the timeframe for previously out of style things to come back into popularity. So around 2020, he began buying unopened VHS tapes of popular movies. He was originally laughed at, but Pete was the last one laughing when he dropped the news that a Rocky VHS tape recently sold for over $25 ,000. Yeah. For those of you sitting around watching this show thinking it's dumb, I just like to remind you, you buy JPEGs hoping they'll be worth millions. So don't laugh at this guy, little glass house deejun dwellers. Pete's our honorary deejun of the week and here's hoping his VHS floor price does better than the bored apes. That's all this week on the deejun dungeon. Make sure you follow me at the Jackie Dutton on X. If you're going to trade shit coins, just make sure you're only here for a good time, not a long time. And I will see you little deejans next week. Back to you guys to discover crypto.
A highlight from Approved How Andy Warhol Worked
"Everyone in our country has a voice. It's something that says not just where you come from, but who you are. Welcome to NPR's Black Stories, Black Truths, a collection of podcasts and a celebration of the hosts in journalism who've always spoken truth to power. Our voices are as varied, nuanced and dynamic as the Black experience and stories should never be about us without us. Find NPR Black Stories, Black Truths on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Hi, I'm Hillary Clinton, back with a new season of my podcast, You and Me Both. On this show, I'll be talking to people I admire about one of my favorite subjects, getting things done. We'll hear from folks in positions of power like democratic leader, Hakeem Jeffries, but also writers and actors and really anyone who keeps doing the work. So please join me. Listen to You and Me Both on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to Stuff You Should Know, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh Clark and there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant. Jerry's here and this is Stuff You Should Know. Oh, and look, there's Andy Warhol. Yeah. And Eddie Sedgwick and Lou Reed. Yeah, and Jackie Curtis and Valerie Solanas, the whole gang's here. We did one on that, right? And the Scum Manifesto? Yes, we did chapter 18 of our book is on the Scum Manifesto and Valerie Solanas shooting Andy Warhol. We did not do it as a podcast yet. Nope. We probably never will. Oh, okay. But I think Chuck, before we get into this, we should dispense something because I think it's very instructive about Andy Warhol. He is, probably the most famous quote from him is that in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. And he didn't say that. Even in an interview in 1980, he said he didn't say it. He used it in, I think, a 1980 or 68 exhibition, like the notes, but it wasn't his. There is at least four other people who can make a claim to having said it first. And that says a lot about Andy Warhol, that he was not shy or embarrassed or even secretive about taking other people's ideas, even asking other people for ideas to use in his own work. And then it also shows that the idea that he said that and that that's so associated with him and his whole ethos, it also demonstrate that he himself was one of his own works of art. His own brand, his own image, his own appearance, everything about him. He was one of his own works of art. And those two things are all captured in just that one little quote. Yeah, that's a good way to put it. A little bit about his childhood before we get to the good stuff. He was born, actually, Andrew Warhola. He would drop the A years later. He was born, and it's interesting, you think of Warhol as a contemporary artist, which he is in some ways, but he was born in 1928.
A highlight from Episode 67: Maternity Housing, the good, the bad, and the beautiful An Interview with Faith Cintron
"Hey welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial and create a space for healing. Well hey everyone welcome back to Let's Talk About It. Today we are joined by Faith. We are so excited to have her on. She was one of our favorite co -workers back at our job where Jackie and I actually met. It's been a long time coming. But we are going to talk to Faith today about running a maternity home, sort of the good, the bad, and the beautiful. So before we start, Faith could you just tell our audience a little bit about who you are, what you do, fun fact about you. Yeah yeah and and I asked for apologies ahead of time. I'm working tonight and I just had a mommy baby pop in for a second so there might be crying babies. There might be some interruptions. So I am Faith Centron. I've been doing maternity housing ministry for 12 years now. Seven of those have been with the organization I'm currently with. I don't know if we're name dropping or not. And yeah I love it. Fun fact. I don't have any fun facts. Yeah yeah I kind of exist on a plane of insanity so like every day of my life is just hilariously funny. I mean you just taught someone how to make meatloaf. That's like pretty fun. I just taught. We have two residents from Colombia and they have only been in the country for a very short time and so when we were menu planning this week I said let's try American food and I taught her how to make meatloaf and they actually liked it. I think because ketchup. I have learned that Colombian ketchup on everything and that was what won them over. Nice. Can't blame them. A fun fact is that Faith and I both went to the same university. We did. Before I did. Yeah before you did. I don't know how much sooner before I did. I don't know how much older you are. I think a lot, Jackie. I think a lot. Fairly at all. Like a year. Yeah we just missed each other. We totally should have besties on campus. Totally. Well awesome. Wow. 12 years in maternity home work. That is pretty incredible. Did you do anything to celebrate like 12 years or 10 years or anything? I didn't and it like and the anniversary like just passed. No I didn't do anything. So it's still time to celebrate. Right well you know I am where I'm actually taking a week -long vacation starting next week. So I guess that will be my celebration. Yes well deserved. So you've been doing this line of work for a long time and what motivated you to become involved in maternity housing and did you ever think that this would be your career for 12 years? Yeah I you know it kind of happened by accident as all good things do. You know I grew up in a in a very large, very Catholic, very pro -life family and I was actually thinking about this the other evening. You know my my grandparents probably sometime like the early 90s they met this homeless pregnant woman outside of their church and they brought her home and they and she lived with them until their baby until her baby was probably a year old and it was just like I think my grandparents did it wasn't a big deal but like it came to mind I was unloading the dishwasher and I was like huh they kind of set this groundwork and they were very very active in their you know in their in their pro the pro -life organization at their church.
A highlight from Coinbase Buying FTX? (Crypto News Update)
"Good morning, everybody. It's time to discover crypto. It's 11 .33am Eastern Standard Time, 8 .33am Pacific Standard Time, because we always, you know, we take a few minutes just to let you percolate, get inside here. We have a new guest on the twos today. We still got Drew on the ones, but on the twos, we got Jackie holding it down. What's up, guys? All right, Jackie, I just want to give about 10 -30 seconds to describe where they might know you from. You might find me on X. I do a little show called The Useless Crypto News, and it's kind of like if SNL's weekend update talked about crypto. Okay. All right. All right. Let's see the page. Okay, here we go. Let's just get right into the crypto markets, guys. We're going to talk about Bitcoin. We're going to talk about, did the NSA have a hand in Bitcoin? Maybe we're also going to talk about Coinbase potentially buying FTX, but there's a catch to FTX Europe, and it looks like it might not actually happen. Also, we have some CBDC stuff and Google Cloud. What are your thoughts on Google Cloud, Drew? I don't think it's going anywhere. It's going to keep growing. We'll see if they can compete heavily with AWS, but it's going to matter a lot who gets good deals in crypto with them. I think they're going to make some big moves. Last but not least, we got some XRP news and Chainlink news. What are your views on Chainlink? It's kind of a boomer coin. Okay, Drew, you might need to just take over at this point. My 4 .2 Chainlink in my wallet is just, you know, it might not ever recover from that. I was going to try to make it 4 .7 today. I might sell 0 .5 and reduce my exposure down to 3 .7, but let's just get into the crypto market, see what things are heading. It looks like we're slightly ticking upward here. We are up 0 .5 % on the market cap here, almost at 1 .1 trillion, 24 -hour volume, looking fairly healthy right now, $42 billion, and Bitcoin dominance coming in at 47 .4%, ETH dominance 17 .5%. And gas is the cheapest I've seen it in pushing almost a year at this point, definitely the cheapest I've seen it in over 6 months. We are close to single -digit GWEI there, 11 GWEI, meaning you can get in and out of your altcoins on Uniswap, very, very cheap. You want to mint that NFT, that's free. It might actually be close to free. It won't be a $20 gas fee. It might be closer to, depending on the NFT, you're looking at like a maybe $2 mint, so really, really cheap right now. And you can probably send Tether for less than a dollar, ETH certainly less than a dollar. All right, let's look at Bitcoin price right now and some of these other coins. Bitcoin is up 0 .4%, everybody, looking fairly healthy. We have Ethereum up 1 .0%. We have XRP, the XRP community, feeling good, feeling powerful. Looks like you're Lidostake, Ether down. Cardano, me, I'm licking my wounds. The XRP community, they are the champions today. The Cardano community, we're the losers today. Let's just call it like it is. My bag's down, yeah. Okay, so Cardano's down 1 .2%. Solana up a little bit. And TonCoin, still shaving some gains here. Did you get into TonCoin or the Telegram coin there? Unfortunately, I did not because I think Telegram's kind of an atrocious app to use. I prefer Discord, but if Discord made a coin, I'd be all over that. Yeah, and they rejected the rumblings and the musings of a coin over a year ago. You know, the idea was floated and the gamer community flatly rejected free money.
A highlight from Renee and Their Labels
"Hey guys, welcome to Mutually Codependent, I'm Jen. And I'm Adam. And today we have a very special guest. Welcome Renee to the show. Hello. Hello. Hello. Should we get a little button so we could have like applause? Yeah, a little soundboard. Yeah, yeah. It's lonely in my head without that stuff. It's much quieter with meds. So Renee is the store manager for our Round Rock store. They are affiliated with our store. So it's not just a random person, but that's cool. It would be weird. Store manager Round Rock, how long? It's been over a year, April. April is a year late manager being here. Oh, being manager. No, I made manager in December last year. Yeah. So when I started working from home. Yeah. It was around that time. But you've been with us a year and a half. Yeah. Yeah. It's goes by so fast these days. I really felt like the other day was just like, oh, it's Renee's one year anniversary. No, it's that's a while away now. I think you started the end of March. So there's the strain of the show so that we have the the justification for the smoking, which I already started. Hold on. Hold on. I got. Oh, that was the box of matches falling. Renee's too Renee's good for the lighters. I taste the butane. I don't know how to also describe it. I had a friend who turned me on to using matches. You wait for the little little bulb to burn. You wait till it gets to the wood and it's virtually tasteless. So I started using matches a lot more since you came over the first time. But I did think that it was funny because we had this like disco. Oh, yeah, you can taste the butane. I'm like, oh, I know what I'd like to do to avoid the taste of butane in my mouth. I'd like to make sure there's at least four or five seconds of very sharp sulfur in my nose before. Because because that's better. I mean, what is these days? What is what is? I just always I make the mistake of lighting the match when it's right under my nose. So if I were to just fix that, it's it's the sort of you try. You strike it away from yourself. I had to learn the hard way to where I was just like, whoo. Shit. Well, we aren't supposed to like the smell of matches lighting. Well, not right under your nose and not as a replacement for the subtle taste of butane. I mean, but I think it's like cilantro. If you taste it, you taste it. If you don't, you don't. So I'm not judging. I'm just being a shit. I mean, when you're not. So what we're what we're smoking straight to the show, the strain of the show today is jelly rancher. Um, jelly rancher. This is brought to you by actually, I think this is hemp living. Hemp living. There we go. It's one of the brands that we sell in the store and it is available online, I believe, as well. Jelly rancher is known as a sativa. That is 26 percent THC, a considered a sativa dominant hybrid. It's been described as happy, giggly, focused feeling with notes of berries and citrus. Beta -cariophalina is the main terpene, which is the same terpene that's in black pepper and cinnamon. It's it's a little peppery. Did you just fucking? I just dropped my cherry on the. You just dumped your cherry into the ashtray. I didn't mean to. Incense, incense. So scoop it up. Scoop it up. I don't know if that's possible. So don't don't use your finger. We have tools. We're humans. We have a lot of lead. If you know that one dies, you can just like your pre -roll. We'll probably do that. Stoners. Hey, one problem at a time. Yeah, if anything, we're we're true engineers. True engineers. Well, you said did I show you the pictures of those like super old like methods of smoking? No, that I found when I was doing the research for the Bastrop thing. No, it's pretty fucking cool. Yeah, it's basically they they carved out a hole in a. Like a like a log, I guess. And they would heat up rocks and put the rocks on the cannabis, so they'd stuff the hole full of cannabis. Like imagine it was like, I don't know, a couple inches in diameter. Like golf ball would fit in it. Right. And it was like a segment of a branch with the golf ball size hole pulled out of it. Shove a bunch of weed in there and then take stones that were heated from the fire and drop them on top. Yeah. So they were literally vaping it. Yeah. It was like old old school vaping technique. Does remind me of the time when I was actually first introduced to weed. It was at a party. And they smoked through an apple. I've done that. Yeah, they cut a hole top and bottom, put some foil on it and and went to town. I mean, I didn't smoke because I was a goody two shoes back then. But, you know, we change. We evolve. Yeah. You know, the thing about people is we can change our beliefs based on our experiences. Yeah. Truly pattern seeking if we choose to. I saw a guy in TikTok the other day smoke weed out of a headrest from a car and a car like still. Yes. And so, yeah, like he took it off. He opened he put he put his weed like down the hole of the metal on one side. Like it was his joint. So he put his joint down one side, like down. And then he just I don't something how he like breathed in through the other side and he was able to smoke. How carcinogens many do you think it was so stupid? So the headrest, oh, the head rest of your car, pulling off the headdress the two holes are and using the actual chair itself, because that sounds like a great idea to be a car made in the 70s full of asbestos. His friend was like, if you were a loved one who suffers from mesothelioma, I miss my popcorn ceilings, OK? Oh, we have popcorn ceiling looked up, actually. So we have modern popcorn ceiling. So it's not as best as terrible. I just think it's fine. I just see you look up as soon as I say that. Oh, somebody was talking about it before and she was like, was it Jackie telling us to get rid of it? I don't know. You got to get rid of your popcorn. I was like, no, then it echoes. And they're like, yeah, but it's OK. No, it's not. No, we're good. We don't own this house. So we put together a list of things to talk about. Yeah, I guess we could read it. Well, we could just kind of go through it. Yeah, we could keep the audience on edge. Keep them on edge. Hey, are you on edge? Stormy. Stormy. Lily Reagan.
A highlight from Episode 66: A Catholic and Protestant Discuss Our Lady of the Miraculous MedalIncorruptible Bodies?!
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. Or we like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial, and create a space for healing. Hey guys, welcome back to Let's Talk About It. Today we're going to talk about dead bodies. Really exciting. Also, Megan and I are in our big earring era, I guess, this episode. She was wearing big earrings, so I had to put on big earrings, obviously. So, copycat. Yeah, I am a copycat. I'm going to grab my coffee. It's down here. Yeah, well today we're going to talk about dead bodies, incorruptible saints. Very specific dead bodies. I will not lie to all of you. This is not some in -depth research. I did do some research, but mostly we're talking about this because I saw a body that's incorruptible. In Paris, when I went to Paris. So, I could tell a little bit about that story. Megan, just what's your initial thoughts on when you hear me say there's incorruptible saints? I just want to know because I know my initial thoughts, even as a Catholic. So, I think I've always been uncomfortable, but I don't because I was like talking to John last night about it as I was just thinking about it, the topic. I was like, I don't know why. I think it's more of just a visceral like, oh, it's a dead body. Because even relics that are body parts give me kind of the same heebie -jee feeling. Oh, we have this foot or we have this bone is always kind of felt weird to me. Less so than icons or relics that are objects or items. So, I think, yeah, just like very like knee -jerk. I'm like, oh, yeah. I mean, that's fair. I don't really have, I mean, I think that relics are weird for sure, but I've never had a knee -jerk reaction to them because I always think it's cool because it's usually saints that I, especially the really old saints. Recently, there's a tour going around of a bone from Saint Jude who was from like the time of Jesus, which it's like, okay, that's really cool that there's a bone from someone that was around the time of Jesus there. And I just always think that's super cool, even though it's super weird. And we're not talking about relics in this episode. So maybe next time when we talk about relics, I'll talk more about this story. I'll say this too. I'll say this too. It is not, this isn't me being like, ew, Catholics. When I have that reaction, like I have that reaction in museums. Like this is a very personal Meghan thing. Like when I see mummies, I'm like, oh my gosh. I know a lot of people don't feel that way. So that's not a statement. Like, ew, Catholics, this is gross. I mean, it's weird. Just being like totally straight up honest. That's how I have a reaction towards any, even like, I feel like it's circulating now those images of like people who were like mummify. I don't even know the right word from like Pompeii. I've been seeing that go around TikTok and like people are like, oh my gosh, this is so cool. And I'm like, ew, I don't want to see it. So that's just me. I know I sent me, I could tell Meghan, cause I sent you the picture of Saint Jude's bone. You immediately were just like, ew. And usually Meghan's not that way about Catholic stuff or doesn't react that way. So I just thought that was really funny. Yeah. It's really not a dig on you. It's my own weird heebie -jeebies. Yeah. I'm just not a spooky girl. I know. Well, Halloween's coming up, Meghan. So better get ready for it. Which is funny because, was it two years ago that we went to St. John Cancus during All Saints Eve? Mm -hmm. And they had a whole bunch of relics. And that was my first time. Well, I guess I saw relics in Greece when I was there, but that was like a lot. It was a lot. They had a lot on display. So I was like, what? There's like a hand or something. It was like, why is this? What is happening? Yeah, there's definitely some spooky ones.
A highlight from Episode 65: Pro-Life Advocacy An Interview with Sami Parker
"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial, and create a space for healing. Hey everyone, welcome back to Let's Talk About It. Today Jackie and I are joined with Sami and we are really excited to talk to her about pro -life advocacy and online advocacy. So Sami, thank you so much for joining us and do you mind just telling our audience a little bit about who you are, what you do? I don't know, fun to act about you. Yeah, sure. Thanks for having me on. It's really, really fun to be able to join you guys. Yeah, I'm a daughter of the king. I'm a wife as of two years ago now. I'm also a boy mom to a little eight month old boy. His name is Owen. He was born December 30th. So it's new and it's really exciting and it's just like the biggest aspect of my life now. So it's like all I talk about, but I also work with live action where we seek to end abortion and make America the most welcoming place in the world to raise a family. And so my contribution to that, I guess I do a lot of things with them, but my main contribution is just making video content, content dedicated to exposing abortion and the industry that's behind it, as well as apologetics videos, just to kind of break down common pro -abortion arguments to help equip other pro -lifers to know how to answer the myriad of pro -abortion arguments that just never seem to stop. And then I've recently honestly been loving making content that just really highlights the beauty of children and motherhood and marriage and all of those things, because it's just, I mean, it's obviously more fun to talk about more joyful and we'll really can't deny how beautiful that is. So yeah, I live in Oregon. I don't know what fun fact, gosh, I'm a twin. That's like always the fun fact. I use really. Yeah. Yeah. She lives in Colorado. So we don't, we obviously don't like post on social media together or anything, but that's my fun fact. Very nice. Well, thank you for what you do. I feel like that's very brave, especially in our world today. Megan and I, we met actually working in pro -life work at a pregnancy care center. So that's how we met. And I don't, I don't think I ever expected to work in pro -life work. Did you, did you, is this something that you thought would be your career, especially in the way that you're doing it on social media? No, no, not at all. I honestly like had no idea what I was going to do with my life, which I feel like is kind of a lot of our answers, at least in college. Like I just won't go to college because like, that's just what people did. I went to GCU and in Phoenix and got my degree in business management and kind of figured I would just get a management job and like, that would be fine. And I'd make money and I'd eventually have a family and that kind of thing. And I wasn't even super pro -life. I wasn't solidly pro -life in college anyways for the first few years at least. And so I definitely didn't think that this would be the line of work that I would end up going to, but the Lord brought me to it and changed my heart on it. And now I honestly couldn't see myself doing anything else. It's just definitely the biggest passion of mine. And it's a huge blessing that this is what I get to do all day. Obviously, wish I didn't have to. I wish abortion was already unthinkable, but yeah, never thought I was going to do it.

"Squash though splotches what i named my inner narrator what isn't inner narrator voice that sort of mary our day that provides the daily voice over or monologues us throughout our day. Now we'll say every. So often i need someone who's like i don't know what this is. I don't have this. And i can't imagine right that look on your face. I can't imagine how much space i would have in my head. If i didn't have that voice but i think most people know what this is we think of it as our inner critic and in my book. Fire your narrator. I talk about ten common narrative types and the critic is just one of them. I came up with ten in speaking with dozens of clients in hundreds of audience members when they talk about their inner beliefs are things they would say to themselves. I almost started categorizing them. Because many are critical but then others have other components. So squash is what. I have named miami later apple name because she shows up all the wrong times to totally squash. My confidence yes. And she doesn't seem to serve much purpose than to keep me in check and so she's a critical narrator but she also is a room nater. Meaning i'm someone who has a hard time letting go of past mistakes or things that have no longer any control over and she is also a strivers which is another one of ten narrative types. Which is this inner story. That i have. I'm not working hard enough. And i need to do more. And that's like a story that i feel like it. It's always with me so that i can accomplish something. But i'm never fully satisfied because i always feel like there's squash reminding me there's more to do so you might not have previously named your inner narrator but i suggest that you and all your listeners if you relate to what i'm saying about oh yes i have. That voice is that you name it right because naming it is one of the first steps to separating it from who you truly are basically what this voice is. It's all of your past experiences. All of your past stories wrapped up into one and the problem with that voices because we tend to remember negative experiences far more than positive may stay with us longer. That voice tends to be overly negative fearful and always looking out for what could go wrong very few of us have a naturally positive yet. So you know you go girl voice in our head but you can work to re write it. That way So jackie if squash needed a play day does she have a narrator in your head that she could hang out with absolutely in fact..

"Now what is your magic zone? It's like when you're doing something you love so much, you lose track of time. When I'm in the magic zone, it's pretty much the only time I forget to eat, it actually moves sleep to second place. The magic zone is activity in alignment. Now how do you find your magic zone? I'm so glad you asked. A quick way to find it is to ask yourself, did you have anything like that as a kid? Did you have hobbies or passions that you would just spend hours and hours doing? Maybe you had something like that before you became a mom. Think about the things that used to fire you up. Sometimes we have things we absolutely love to do, but for whatever reason, we let go of it. So now would be a perfect time to pick it back up again. But another way to find your magic zone that takes a little more effort and time is scheduling a try time. Yeah, I like to coin terms and phrases for a lot of things I do. It makes it more fun and interesting in my opinion. I try time is a period of time determined by you that your only job is to be curious. First, determine how long your tri time will be. Is it a week a month, 6 months a year? How much time do you have to just explore? Next, make a list of things you've always wanted to try. I'm talking brain dump here. Absolutely anything. Write it down. You could have ten ideas, 20, a hundred, the sky is the limit. Third, go down the list, saying each idea out loud, stopping between each on your list. Pay attention to your body as you say it. We're going to rate each idea a one a two or three on the body scale. A one is like, whatever, it could be fun. I don't know, I'm interested. It doesn't really matter. A two piques your curiosity. Um, I could do that. And a three is a hell, yes. This is definitely something I want to do. Anything that rates a three, that is what we're going to try first. It could be as simple as taking a cooking or photography class, maybe trying out that new art place downtown, hiking somewhere new, snorkeling, trying a new food, a film festival, it could be as crazy as skydiving. It's completely up to you. Level three baby. If you feel it in your bones, try it. Your only job is to try. At the end of your tri period, will you have a brand new business? Probably not. But I find women often expect the answer to show up at the front door, ring the doorbell and let itself in. Let me ask you, how did you discover your favorite food? You tried it. How did you meet your partner? You gave him or her try. As we get further into our lives, we stop trying new things. We expect to think so hard that the answer will just appear. But what is next for you? You might not even know about. It might be something that you've only heard of or that you haven't even discovered yet. And so the only way to find those things is to try other things. Listen after 25 years in television, the way I make a living today didn't even exist when I first got into TV. The world is constantly changing. There is something out there for you that maybe just brand new that you don't even know about yet. So instead of waiting for the answer to come, get out there and try things and meet people and discover a whole world that is just waiting for you. You're in a prime position of your life to bring curiosity back into your life. Curiosity that will help you uncover who you are right now and what you might want to do next. Figuring out what you want is the fun part figuring out how to do it, that's the easy part. There are people out there to help, steps you can take resources to discover that's the easy part. Helen, firing up what's been dormant inside you, is the perfect way to begin to see what's possible. Please reach out again with an update and let us know how you're.

"Become over 40 and you go what the fuck am I listening to? When they haven't even done their healing journey, go back to my last episode and all the red box people, and then you come back to listening to your own voice that you always had inside you. I love that correction. I love that reframe because that is true. I see it differently. I see other people place it out. In what we think feel experience. Yeah. And then you have the double whammy of not only do I feel the doubt. I'm now presented with this challenge of quote unquote overcoming the doubt. Which I don't know how any of you feel. I've never officially overcome doubt. I ride with it. It's with me all the time. I think doubts actually has a role. I love that. You don't ride with it. Is it in the backseat of the max from the trunk? Yeah. No, it's with me, and I talk about this, so I did a TED Talk. And I talked about link to that also. Yes. But I talk about I kept moving forward, despite the doubt, and that's what you have to do. We wait to feel confident we wait to overcome that. Like, I'll do it when I feel good. The way it works. It's with you. You know who does that? Who? A grown ass woman. Yes. So back to you, Marianne, 'cause this is your thing. How do we decide what to do for a challenge? There's three pieces. There's the thing you're gonna do, is it do one push up? Is it ran a mile? It also could be a negative. It could be like not have a drink or spend 15 minutes with my phone turned off. It could be call a friend. Can be anything. And if we're talking podcasting, you know, it might be record a practice run every morning or something. You pick a task and the number of times you're gonna do it like one push up, right? One thing. And then you pick how often you'll do it. So the challenge could be on one day I'm going to for the 8 hours of my workday every hour get up and do ten jumping jacks. It's a frequency, it's a task, and it's a duration. So it could be over a week over a year over month. So another one would be I'm going to do a TikTok video once a week for the next month. It doesn't have to be huge. And I think it's really important that your first time you do it, you make sure it's finite and you make sure it's achievable because part of it is the lessons you learned, like with Jen learned, but part of it is also that feeling of success like you start to change the identity of I'm the kind of person that can do this. I didn't change my identity to I'm a runner, but I did change my identity to I'm the kind of person that can have this kind of discipline. I'm the kind of person that has this fitness, right? So it did change how I think about myself. That's so important. Because I think there is a tendency for us to decide to do all of it. How do we resist going? I'm going to write him a journal every day. I'm going to record my YouTube video. I'm going to make nutritious perfect meals for my family. I'm going to have sex with my husband. Like, yeah, he had me add that one. But you know, I'm going to do all of these things for the next 5000 days. How do we resist that urge that many of us get to be quote unquote perfect and do all of it? I think it's just patience. If you realize that there's a process. We were all talking about it. It's a process, right? You realize it's a process. Have a little confidence, a little patience that you can do that next thing. If you write three words in your journal every day for 7 days, when you finish that, you're that person. You did that. And then you can say, I'm going to do it for 20 days, or you can say, I'm going to write a sentence every day. Or you can say, I'm going to write three words, and I'm going to add to that 5 minutes of stretching. Always make sure it's achievable. You're allowed to do more. If you challenge yourself to write three words every day for 7 days, you could write ten words. There's no rule against it. Yeah. But you make that commitment to yourself. And I said in the talk, it helps if you make it public. It helps if you tell other people, especially people whose opinion you care about. Let's just take the month of November because there's 30 days. It's a nice clean month. I'm asking you, listener. What's something you can do? Is it one thing for all 30 days? Is it one thing for 5 days? I would love for you to share that. I love the idea of you calling people in to do it together because doing it together. We just talked about chair's struggle, creates Bond, but also those of us that aren't good at doing something for ourselves. We do it for each other. Yes. Right? So it's like, we all joined Jackie as grown ass women to do this November challenge. And then I'm doing it for me, but I'm also doing it because I don't want to let all the rest of you down. So I love that you're asking people to do it together. Yeah, I just think there's so much power in that. And it's a great month. The holidays are coming, and it sort of changed your brain to put yourself first, at least on that priority list, as you go into what can be chaotic, where a lot of voices start happening in those last two months of the year. I don't know, maybe it's just me. And I love the idea that as people are thinking about this, it can be a not doing something. It can be, I am going to spend 15 minutes every morning with my phone off. Or I am going to not have more than two candy bars every day, or whatever that is. Make it realistic, but it can be anything. Yeah. Okay, they know what they want to do. They know how often they want to do it. They know for how long they want to do it. Now what? Now do it. Now tell someone. Tell us a hold yourself accountable. Keep your word to yourself. Make sure you surround yourself either in real life or we don't always control the people we're around in real life. So your social media, make sure that there are people that make you feel like doing that thing. For some people that's people who are doing it more than you because then it makes you want to do that. Other people that might be disheartening. You pick what works for you, but make sure when you look at your social media, it makes you feel like you want to do that thing. And if you need an accountability partner, make sure that you ask for the kind of support that works for you now in your life. Yes. So come into the group, a link to it in the show notes. I will start a thread. Let us know what your challenge is. We will support you 100% of the way. We'll just do this in November. It'll be amazing. Do you both have something that you're going to continue or do for November? I'm putting on the spot now. I want to do TikTok. A TikTok every day. Wow. Every day. TikTok every day. Awesome. I mean, you already have the content. It's not even like you have to create it. Yeah. You've already done it. You have all these lives you have this amazing songs, all that? Amazing. Okay. Alex, feminist and out 25 pitches in November. 25 pitches. 25 pitches. Awesome for a podcast. To be a guest to be a guest on podcasts. Excellent. Yes. I can't wait. Yeah. And you're going to continue your run. I'm going to continue my run, run one mile every day, and I will literally write three words in my journal every day. Every day. 30 days. For the month of November. Yes. It's something that I do, but I don't do it every day. Because of you right now. I am going to commit for the month of November to do it every day. Awesome. You are a certified grown ass women. I adore you all. Thank you for doing this. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I would love to hear what challenge you'd like to take on for the month of November.

"Melody Murray is a therapist in the Seattle area who says a lot of our not enoughness was actually programmed years ago. That sense of security and confidence needs to be instilled in us very early on, so it sticks. So it's real and how many of us had those households where, you know, people were pouring into us in healthy ways. You know, it has to be very intentional. And I think only now are people being that intentional as they have conversations with their children to build that. You know, what's a battle? Some self talk, that's to happen all day every day for it to penetrate. Instill that within yourself that I am enough, I'm fine. I'm okay. You never have a baby in the nursery just born and be like, no, not enough. You little fat bastard. At what point are our needs and inconvenience or not good enough? Something happens around middle school. Something happens then that I think shifts especially young women coming into their own and wanting to be attractive to other people wanting to be accepted by other people. Which if you don't accept yourself, you're always going to be on shaky ground with other people. I think that it's a really important thing to understand what is it that we give off, especially when it comes to children. What do we give off? When we see our kids, are we happy to see them? Or do we go, when you know they're going to ask you a question? What is it now? That'll make a kid feel like what they need doesn't matter. And if we got that, then we have tendency, unfortunately, even if it was painful to pass that shit on. What's melodies method for feeling more enough? This is gonna sound really silly, but it has worked for a lot of my women, especially women that are in the workforce. I always tell them to look around their office, find the Kevin of the office. And they'll say, who's Kevin? I'm like, Kevin, that guy that's got his feet up. He doesn't go above and beyond at all ever. He just breezes in, does his job and breezes right on out. He's not stressing over a damn thing. You gotta be Kevin, because Kevin's earning more than you probably. He's earning a check and he's not checking his phone or laptop at night or on the weekends. Look at Kevin and be the Kevin. Be Kevin. Men don't have these conversations. It sucks. Men don't have these damn conversations. Are they enough? Listen, if you don't have a cabinet your work, I have some of my own tips that have worked for myself at times I really needed it and also for my clients. So grab a piece of paper or even your notes app because we're going to walk through these 5 steps that can change your life. Number one identify the area or areas in which you feel like you're not enough. If there are multiple write them all down, but then we're going to pick one at a time to go through the process. Number two define what enough looks like in that area. What does it even mean? Get specific, because if you're thinking, you're not enough as a mom, what does it look like to be enough as a mom? What does it look like to be enough as a spouse? What does it look like to be enough in your job or a friendship? It really helps to define what it is that you think is enough so you can actually compare where you are and where you think you should be. Number three, imagine someone you love, it could be your best friend, a sister, neighbor, maybe even a daughter. Would you hold her to the same impossible standards, you expect of yourself? Seriously, be honest. Would you hold her to those same standards, would you judge her so harshly or would you cut her some slack? What makes you so unique that you are expected to achieve some bogus level and be this person that you would never expect someone else to be? Why do you have to reach this impossible standard and other people don't? I always talk about the power of plates and napkins. When my kids were little and they would be the class party and there'd be the sign up, email that would come through. I would hop on that thing. So quickly, depending on how crazy life was, right? So if I felt like, oh, I got that. I might make cupcakes or something like that. But if I had so much going on and I didn't have the capacity to do something big, I would hop on so quickly and get the plates in the napkins. Now guess what? They're having a party. They need the plates and napkins. They're just as important as the snacks. The foundation of the fun. Really are. There's a lot that self inflicted, but there's a lot of it, we do to each other. So much judgment and criticism that we do to our fellow sister out there that's bullshit. Oh, is that all you did? Plates and napkins. Okay. That's how much you love your kid. I brought blah, blah, blah. Keep your shit to yourself. I'm not giving you a standing ovation. If there was more, just acceptance of being a regular person without going above and beyond because what you're doing is you're shaking your shit on somebody else. And if we all did that more often. I mean, it's a ripple effect. Oh yeah, I forgot to do this. Oh, I forgot that too. Okay, I don't feel so bad. Let's go to number four. Who is determining your enoughness or not enoughness? I was doing EMDR recently, and I'm going to do a whole episode on that later, but it's this really powerful process in therapy that helps you sort of like reprogram some traumatic events that may have happened in your life. And I was doing this and this vision sort of popped into my head. Now, there's this light show and possibilities, California, where it's just all these colored lights. And it's acres and acres, and all you can see as far as you can look ahead is just these beautiful, beautiful lights. And so how this vision while I was doing EMDR, that it was like that, but it was all people. Just people for acres and acres. And what was really interesting is there were people with red boxes over their heads and people with green boxes over their heads. And the red box people, where people who had been hurt, who had gone through their own trauma, but they hadn't taken the steps to heal or evolve or move forward. So they're sort of living in that pain and in that pain comes judgment and anger and so many other emotions. Now, the green box people, maybe they've been through their own share of pain and trauma, like the red box people, but these are people who have really committed to themselves and to their healing, they really care for themselves. They care about other people. They find value in who they are. So here's my question who do you look to when it comes to determining your enoughness? Are you spending all your time listening to the red box people and their opinions? By the way, there's a reason that there's a phrase that says hurt people hurt people, right? Or are you turning to green box people? Those who maybe have gone through their own healing, who may give you some constructive insight, but aren't necessarily looking to hurt you or to criticize you. Now I'm not saying every one of the people with the red box over them are intending to be hurtful. They're just people with their own experiences and their own programming, like we've gone through. But when we put our own value in the comments of other people, how can we not feel like we're not enough, especially when that person hasn't even gone through their own healing journey. From whom are you looking for feedback in your life? Is it someone where you should really be taking that feedback? And by the way, whether it's a red box person or green box person, the person you should be listening to is you. So number 5 you can pause for a minute if you need to to do this one. But.

"Other people would reflect back plus what they heard. So they say you know for me. This is where. I learned that. I like to try something hard. And then teach it to somebody else. And that was one of the patterns. I saw So that that was a a nice way for me to really introspective bath and figure out what is it. I wanted to have my life once. He can do anything. Great feedback on where to go when you're at that second stage but after that stage if you decide to pursue a career path after that stage you're moving into product leadership now you're becoming a people manager and that's a whole new ballgame. The first thing to know is that to become a product leader. You need to. I be a good product manager and the seems maybe some people. This is incredibly obvious. But i've definitely met people who said i don't want to get better at execution because i just want to become a manager and the people might team will do the execution and that is not at all how it works first of all because you won't get hired into those roles or promoted into those roles if you're not already showing excellence but second of all because You won't be trusted to to coach the people on your team. If you don't already know how to do it. So i i. Things is like focus on being great at your job and i would even encourage people to To not act like their current. Kim role is some like inconvenience stop on the path people management because that will start the fray. Your relationship with your manager and your relationship with your manager is incredibly important. So the next thing i would say is to focus on starting to pick up some product leadership activities and the the two that i think are really big here. One is mentoring people So this might be unofficial mentoring and might be official mentoring having an intern having a coaching. Apm but really starting to show interest in helping other people develop because that's a huge part of product leadership and building up this track record of people that you've helped who then can write you a nice mix peer review and talk about how helpful you work because that will start to show your skills there. Another one for private leadership is starting to work on processes. And if i process you should work on process. And you're like no. I can't process which is a lot of fiennes for you. Might wanna rethink how much you want to become the people manager because processes a huge part of what people managers are responsible for so even before you become a manager you can work on processes by a developing templates for your teams to us and share them around. You might decide to take over one of the team meetings in lead bad and help organize it for people Volunteer for various types of processing organization all responsibilities. And by doing that you You get to show your skill at those And you get to start to earn the respect of the other. Pm's on your team so that if you do become a manager they'll be like oh that makes a lot of sense. I can see why why she should have become a manager and not like why did she get that rolling not me so this process is really important and then the third thing i'd say is to talk to your manager about it and you don't want to say like i want to be a manager right now because that might free that relationships again but instead he might say I'm really interested in becoming a people manager some day Can we talk about what skills i should focus on and what i should be developing so i'll be ready when the opportunity arises and by putting that out in a future looking lay. Now your manager is free to go right down all the reasons why they're not gonna promote you right now but now you have this nice list of what you should be working on.

Welcome back we're in the homestretch of today's episode one where we're learning how to navigate or product careers. Jackie bavaro author of cracking the. Pm career talked about three stages that one goes through. Basically product managers senior product manager and product leader and she offers great advice route advice. That's a result of a great career in product that she's had herself she seen what's worked and well what exactly hasn't worked in fact. Jackie talks about some mistakes that she's seen made along the way things that can hopefully be avoided. One of the common mistakes i see is under investing in your relationship with your manager. I think sometimes people have a tendency to either get competitive with her manager or to to sort of vent and let it all out to their manager complained to their manager But in most companies your managers. Either the person who decides to promote you or at least somebody who needs to advocate for you to promotion committee and so your manager they need to want to promote you and they need to believe that you are going to make their lives easier. They want to know that. Like okay. great. If i make you a manager you're gonna handle all those people for me and not that you're gonna come and complain to me and make my life topper now. Be another person who i have to. I have to deal with investing in that relationship. Really get to know your manager Understand what their goals are. What keeps them awake at night because the way that you grow in your career for most of these levels is you start to delegate some of your current responsibilities and that frees up your time so now you can take on Bigger and better responsibilities. And that's true for you but it's also true for your manager so if you can connect with your manager they might give you some really high level important stretch opportunities that you love because it's a chance to show these strategic skills and get exposure at a higher level in the company and they love because.

Jackie schlegel everyone. Jackie is the executive director for texans for vaccine choice and just six short years. She took a group of passionate moms and turned it into the epitome of grass roots activism setting an unprecedented standard for the nation and even drawing worldwide attention that flooding group of twenty is now a political action committee and educational foundation with over seventy five thousand official members who proudly align themselves with texans for vaccine choice and thanks to jackie's endless energy and passion. This group is organized with local branches. Core members and team leaders impacting their schools their communities and their legislators their website is texans for vaccine choice dot com. Welcome sister jackie energy. I don't know burn today. Is we had a big get. How's your energy. Do i gotta say. I got my butt kicked a little three hours sleep. I took a nap yesterday in the middle of the day. I never to that. And i still slept like a rock last night But but i'm glad i showed up. I'm glad i went. And i'm glad i was part of of This this this this freedom rally that you had texans for vaccine choice. I think it's so important that we have a choice. It's not that i'm anti medical. I am pro-choice. No matter what it is no one should get the right to tell another person what to do with their body period. That's my stand. I absolutely agree. In what a great event it was we were so thankful you were able to come in to share into connect. You had a message that needs to be heard on saturday. And i know that it's so different from what you normally do. All righty. yeah but you did it. You did it gravely emboli and i'm just so proud of you. Thank you for being there. Well i i appreciate the opportunity to speak. It's only my second time really actually that i've spoken in front of an audience like that. But you know what you have to be brave. We all have to be brave. We all have to be smart. And i love the work that you're doing because this conversation needs to happen it needs to happen in order for us. To thrive our democracy to thrive as a country. I believe that with all my heart. So why did you do this. Freedom fight jackie well simply put. We do three things. I texted perplexing choice. We educate we advocate in. We build community. I think we did. Those three things on saturday had an incredible stellar lineup. Eileen o. for one. I was just so taken aback by the doctors who spoke. Oh yeah i learned so much from them so it was educational was We did advocacy. We talk to families about getting involved in showing up. i mean clearly. Our elected officials knew we were there. They knew we were outside. And we were advocating for our rights. And then i think the third and final component of building community. This can be a lonely journey right. I mean sometimes you feel like you are against the work and we have so many new individuals join us in joining our movement. That really my goal of this event was for everybody to have something to come together on. You have a rope. We knew we were going to have individuals who were fascinated with this. Kobe vaccine who joined us for whatever reason and we even tried to reach out to the lesson. No they are welcome at texas for vaccine choice And so those. Are you know the reasons that we came together in clearly on the advocacy Just to extend the reach to those who are fighting back against these medical mandates We reached a lot of people in saturday. And i'm really glad we did the event. Yeah i am too and you know. I had a purpose bringing my mask with me and showing it to the crowd because i was trying to really convey that there are a lot of people out there that are scared like my seventeen year old daughter. I brought her up in the speech. Because you know and it's funny and mother's day she got me the ring that said mama bear. I talked about that and the speeches well but it's important that we understand that. In order for us to move forward is a democracy we have to. We have to respect one another's opinions about how we feel about what we do with our body right. They have just as much right to choose to get a vaccine as we do to not choose to get a vaccine and i think you know i. Hopefully i accomplished that. Hopefully i did. I'm so glad you clarified on that mission. In what you were relating. I think that compassion is a beautiful message and we might not agree on everything. But we all came together in compassion. Could you imagine how powerful me would be if we did just that. Yeah we have to embrace each other's differences you know Most of the crowd believed in organized religion. I'm a buddhist you know. They're trying to create peace and and you know understanding for how they were feeling in all those mothers and fathers in the crowd. Like you. Jackie that have vaccine injured children. We need to listen to you. We need to make changes in government to protect all children. I'm very passionate about it as you know just like you. But let's talk about the media. Shutout has any mainstream news or media covered the event. I haven't really seen any media coverage i was able to. We went out to dinner after the event or saturday night. And i was thrilled when i looked up on the television and i saw a sure. You know little segment on it. I was hoping i was going to see more. I went home and searches search. I finally found the in. I kinda had to laugh. Because the only coverage i cook fine was maybe a twenty two second clip about freedom. Rally never mentioned our name stated were hundreds. Well there were fifth. He hundred people at least by our admits that showed up to this rally. There's well over a thousand people there. Maybe two thousand and our name is texans vaccine choice. The fact that we've had come right media shout. Let me tell you what they want to show. Is that divisive community. What they want to show is angry protesters. They knew they weren't gonna get that when they showed up. And that's not the message. They were getting. They decided they weren't going to show the.

"Report. When it comes out and to add their own research so. I think it will be a topic of debate very very soon I think there's a lot that we don't know about what the true origin of this is. But from my perspective certainly the leading hypothesis is that there was some kind of a breakout from this wuhan laboratory where they were doing that corona virus research and they work. It was clearly gain of function research. I mean that's clear. In other words. It was bio weapons research. I believe that mandates are morally and spiritually wrong. I agree with with Robert kennedy jr. any also is quoted as saying that human rights guaranteed by the us constitution and bill of rights are being decimated. Do you agree with that. I do i i you know. Human dignity is sort of not explicitly in the constitution. But that's what it's all about bernadette its dignity for free exercise of religion for free speech for freedom of assembly to petition the government the integrity of your body the integrity of your spirit. That's what america represents to the world and these new policies around cove. It closed down churches. That closed down demonstrations that are censoring people. Through social media. Enter telling people they have to inject toxic substances in their bodies. These are decimating our conversation and we should all be deeply concerned And you know you you touched on this a few minutes ago but and this is written by lynne. Mctaggart and brian hubbard. They are the editors of what the doctors don't tell you they go on to say that. Then there's the small matter of unintentional apartheid if seen hesitancy is greatest among the black and asian communities will any government dare to restrict their movements in favor of white people. What do you say to that. Well i seventy. Five percent of african americans had noted the vaccine so far so this is not only going to be an apartheid against black people. This is going to be an apartheid against unvaccinated people. And we're putting up. Jim crow to point right now and i think it's horrifying. We know where that goes. It's good we shouldn't be on board with this. But i'm gonna have to run but always great to talk to you all right. Yeah we've gone a little over a thank you so much. Mary holland.

"Is who i am and we had said no and that she had kept saying that and just not that long before that meeting she had asked if we would call her by her girl name and we had said no and it was like. Oh my gosh. Have we been her. I believe in it. Just never forget that moment. It was a wakeup call that i really needed. And for you to share that in the book it was just a reminder of why we are so passionate about helping him in the way that he needs help not in the way and this goes back to the beginning as taipei moms. I think in the past. At least i can speak for myself. I would help people in the way that i thought they should be helped us all about. How do i believe would be the appropriate response. And i've discovered through this experience that it's not about me and what i think is appropriate but really listening and hearing and it's changed the way i communicate with everybody. Yes and it's in in some ways the greatest gift. I'm still terrified as hell. I were approaching adulthood. You're a little bit further ahead. There's so much to be afraid of appreciate that. You wrote this book. I appreciate that. You're talking to me. Because i think the more trans parents have access to this and just talking about it on a regular podcast. Not something that's trans-pacific or anything like that but also people who are not in these shoes who may be will understand it a little bit better. We do have so much fear and ask. That's part of the fear that like what we can't control that. I think we just got to stop. Parenting from fear is fear that stops us fear for their safety. You know that stops us from letting them be who they really are and so we just got to say okay. I'm gonna put aside fear. I'm gonna pretend there's no fear hate anything in the outside world. Just look at my child and parent my child with love based on what they need today. Yeah and that's great advice for any parent because we're so focused on which colleges and which jobs and will you be safe and happy and healthy and successful that most of those things are determined by what we do today just little small steps every day and it's just it's so simple. It's not easy but it's really simple and let me ask you one last question. Do you feel like it's changed. How you show up as a pediatrician. Definitely it's made a big impact in that sort of puberty time. Even in terms of the way i ask questions has changed a little bit. it's also just changed. The way i talk period for example i have moms who are pregnant. Who come at interview me to be their pediatrician. And it used to be pregnant. Mom walks into my office. Congratulations do know what you're having. And then if they tell me. Oh i'm do this time and i'm having a girl then gray whatever. But if they don't say like i don't ask do you know what you're having just that simple and so i really just even outside of being a pediatrician. If it's my you know nieces birthday. I really tried hard to by gender. Neutral toys clothing. I'm not saying that like you know. She asked me for doll. Is that something girls play. You know that. I like why. Why do you want to and then if she wants. Let's say a puzzle. I don't look for like the pink princess puzzle. just get her abrazos. Just gosh we impose so much gender on children in this country it you start realizing how much you do it..

"Sooner and another child doesn't get delayed getting the appropriate support Undoing some of that screw upset. I did with my There's also there's another kind of guilt that i have so many different kinds of feel guilty. If sometimes i missed the child. I feel guilty that i enjoy current present day more than i enjoyed about in all those years. Where trigger out. What was going on with her. And then it's like. Why do i feel guilty. That i enjoy my currently thriving daughter more than her old version. There's a part of me that thinks like am. I forgetting who. She used to be a what she used to be like. There's all kinds of emotions. I have that. I don't even know how to articulate. And one day. I feel this way and one day i feel the other way. I think these are things that we a lot of times. don't really talk about As as parents but at the end of the day it's also such a beautiful human experience to have and go through all these emotions. So i try to embrace some of it to degree when i can't and you're totally right like there are very likely people who will head down the same path or a similar path as you are. I and this book help them feel less crazy and help them understand. Maybe some of the things that you write about doctors and therapists and saying to you during the journey. Maybe we'll help them. Make a choice sooner and not put it off but at the same time and you know this as a pediatrician and as a mom you're doing the best you could given what you had. You also grew up in a traditional around family. Do you feel like it. Came into play concerns culturally in terms of initially like. How would my parents handle this. Which ended up. Not really being an issue but i was concerned about not so much my parents but what my parents friends say to my parents and will that bother my parents at and then there was like a certain point. And i'm like why my were more worried about what my mom's friends are gonna say to my mom and how that's going to impact my mother than i'm worried about my okay like my mom is in. She's seventy she can just defend herself. She's She defended or not offended or she can handle. Why am i worried about. What's my mom going to say to people more than at worried about my own kit also at times and this was in my denial phase was more worried about my other children. And how is this going to impact my other children like other kids at school are gonna come up to my oldest armand.

"And you're like lead to pick what was for dinner thursday night and they changed their mind five times and so. How did you like reconcile knowing that. Your child was eccentric and opinionated. Maybe changed her mind all the time but now she's saying this particular thing yeah. I think that was the hardest part for me is because she would. She have an interest in one thing that she'd have an interest in another thing so at a certain point just now her interested in in being trans you know. And she's going to forget about this I'm involved with a lot of families with trans children now I think the more you spend time with other families who have trans children and hear their histories. This is a very common thing. Entrance children You know where they are i. They're interested in one thing and then there's interest in another thing and there's like a search for somewhere in something to cling to belong to an a changing of mine jumping from one thing to another thing in a different way than other kids changed their minds. I think for me. I started to realize for her kind of the constant changing of interest was really just like looking for something that fit and i think her version of jumping from one thing to another thing was way more extreme than most other children's and then i hear about this a lot in other trans kids as well Is that when they get involved with something an interested in something. It goes to like an extreme right away and then a few months later. It's something else and that's probably all part of this search for something till like Identify when i asked to answer your question. I think it was really for us ultimately. What made the difference was one hearing other parents who had the similar experiences and then also her therapist or something about her last therapist who still hurt therapists now. Two and half three years later is that as soon as i met him. I just felt like he's gonna know gonna trust him And he's gonna lead us sort of to the right place. And i just decided that i needed to surrender and listen to somebody else. And that i couldn't figure this out. I think i surrendered to. I'm not going to figure this out. I'm gonna let somebody else figure this out. I was probably just one exhausted at that point. two desperate And also the time. We ended up with third Therapists again scared. Because i recently had another call from a school counselor saying that she's having suicidal thoughts again. So i think it was a combination of all those things that sort of told me. I'm just gonna surrender to this and let other people tell me what to do but amazing what happens when you do surrender to it. And it's what is this whole journey taught you about yourself. There's been no experience in my life that has transformed me as a person this much. I mean it's taught me that. If i just open mind and take things day by day that the amount that i can change and grow and expand is really limitless. It has taught me that our capacity to evolve is beyond what we can imagine. Because i started out in the book saying like my greatest wish was at one day i would look at her and see my daughter and i didn't think that day would ever come and it came and it probably took about a year or year and a half and that's really not that long and esteem. How long known her. And i didn't think. I thought that i would always look at her..

You're <Speech_Female> not good <Speech_Female> enough <Speech_Female> right. <Speech_Female> There's nowhere to get <Speech_Female> to right now. The place <Speech_Female> to get to his <SpeakerChange> love in <Speech_Female> your life again. <Speech_Female> Yeah and this is the <Speech_Female> perfect time for it <Speech_Female> because a lot of people are <Speech_Female> working from home. <Speech_Female> They're not committed. Whatever <Speech_Female> your circumstances <Speech_Female> are it's <Speech_Female> a great time for <Speech_Female> self reflection <Speech_Female> and just <Speech_Female> sit in it for a little <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> bit and not have to <Speech_Female> do something it really <Speech_Female> resonates with me because <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> i am a doer. <SpeakerChange> And <Speech_Female> i'm at a place like <Speech_Female> getting closer to fifty <Speech_Female> that. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> I don't necessarily <Speech_Female> have to accomplish <Speech_Female> for me to <Speech_Female> be valuable <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> when i say that i <Speech_Female> just mean you listening. <Speech_Female> Do not have <Silence> to be accomplishing <Speech_Female> to <Speech_Female> have value <SpeakerChange> in <Speech_Female> this world. I <Speech_Female> also think <Speech_Female> that one <Speech_Female> of the stories that i'm <Speech_Female> hearing about the book <Speech_Female> for women in <Speech_Female> our forties <Speech_Female> and fifties <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> and sixties <Speech_Female> is that we have <Speech_Female> accomplished <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> now we're like <Speech_Female> there is something more <Speech_Female> there's a <Speech_Female> lot more left in me <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> but but <Speech_Female> it's got to be <Speech_Female> really connected <Speech_Female> to what i care about <Speech_Female> invalid desire <Speech_Female> but i don't know what that is <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and i <Speech_Female> can't keep doing <Speech_Female> what <Speech_Female> i've done or <Speech_Female> i can i certainly <Speech_Female> can but <Speech_Female> it's not filling me up <Speech_Female> anymore <Speech_Female> and i think the <Speech_Female> the opportunity <Speech_Female> but also <Speech_Female> the danger <Speech_Female> is do we <Speech_Female> let ourselves <Speech_Female> be in this limited <Speech_Female> space <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Female> and really <Speech_Female> believe <Speech_Female> that there <SpeakerChange> is <Speech_Female> a more <Speech_Female> and that we can find <Speech_Female> it <Speech_Female> but <SpeakerChange> that we may <Speech_Female> have to let go of some <Speech_Female> wet <Speech_Female> has been <Speech_Female> how we <SpeakerChange> have defined <Speech_Female> ourselves <Speech_Female> absolutely. <Speech_Female> I really appreciate <Speech_Female> your coming on. <Speech_Female> I think <Speech_Female> that the book is for <Speech_Female> everyone. <Speech_Female> I gotta to have it <Speech_Female> on my nightstand soon. <Speech_Female> I was lucky <Speech_Female> enough to read it on my computer. <Speech_Female> But it's one <Speech_Female> of those books that you need <Speech_Female> for the highlighter. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> People sending <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> me pictures of all their <Speech_Female> flags and highlights <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> written <SpeakerChange> to themselves <Speech_Female> very sweet. <Speech_Female> I like <Speech_Female> awesome and <Speech_Female> my favorite part of all <Speech_Female> of this is the fact that <Speech_Female> it was something that <Speech_Female> you believed you. <Speech_Female> Quote unquote failed. <Speech_Female> That led to <Speech_Female> it. So <Speech_Female> if you're listening and <Speech_Female> you are in <Speech_Female> that space where maybe <Speech_Female> you feel like <Speech_Female> you failed. <Speech_Female> There's something <SpeakerChange> else <Speech_Female> something <Speech_Female> our is if we <Speech_Female> let it <SpeakerChange> there really <Speech_Female> is if we let <Speech_Female> it and we stopped <Speech_Female> and we keep <Speech_Female> dropping our expectations <Speech_Female> of what it has to look <Speech_Female> like. <SpeakerChange> I <Speech_Female> believe that too. <Speech_Female> Yeah jennifer <Speech_Music_Female> thank you thank <Speech_Music_Female> you jackie. <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> Thank you so <Speech_Female> very much <Speech_Female> for listening. <Speech_Female> If you like this episode <Speech_Female> please consider <Speech_Female> sharing with a friend. <Speech_Female> You know the one <Speech_Female> she could really <Speech_Music_Female> use more gratitude <Speech_Female> in her life right <Speech_Female> now and until <Speech_Music_Female> next time. Take <Speech_Music_Female> care and keep <Music> thriving. <SpeakerChange>
"jackie" Discussed on The Grown-Ass Woman's Guide with Jackie MacDougall
"Written. I'm a really good writer. But structurally i totally messed it up. Which is hysterical because part of my businesses working with writers. You don't make mistakes. How can you actually teach them to avoid them. Oh that's brilliant. I'm just gonna remember jackie man. I'm gonna get tattooed. But it's totally true because i teach podcasting and i've made many many mistakes and like you're totally right. I can help you avoid them and just like you can help authors. Avoid what you did so but what. What prevented you from just going. Okay i suck. I'm not gonna write ever again because you know that it could have gone there. Oh yeah i think my essential nature is determined. We could flip around. Call it stubborn day it is. You asked my husband. Sometimes it's learn. I'm so let me tell you the story so the memoir fail and then i rewrote. I tried to turn it into something else what we might call us. Kim malik memoir called lessons. The self help grew had to teach yourself. I wrote the book proposal for that. My agent turned it down. Her entire agency turned it down. I said forget it no worries i don't care i'm still gonna write it our time for two more months. That book apart. And i realized another right. This isn't working. This is this is kind of shallow and a fry- -able idea it doesn't have that up and it was out of that. This book came. So i think this is what i know. This is what. I know what i learned from looking back in that memoir and all the times. The i didn't go through deepened. My desire. i had gone deep into my desire. And i had to write this book so it propelled me forward. It really did i. I'm not operating. I when my agent and everything down. I went for a run. Probably like an idiot running on the on the path going mobile my shine. Nobody tell me what i was talking about. My daughter used to say this from a lady gaga song in highschool. Nobody's gonna chine. That's funny maybe you inspire people on that running path to there to.
