"Can I share a few of those with everyone and with you? A message here I agree it's about concerns. I don't like it. And I feel your interview gives me that voice to challenge this behavior. That's from Claire who's listening Jessica. Another one saying you can't consent if you're unconscious. This has happened twice to me both times. I felt very confused, and it was not okay. But Jessica, this message, this is bonkers. If you're sleeping with someone, you really love. I don't see how it's sexual assault. If I didn't trust and loved them, I wouldn't be in a long-term relationship with them. And another one, I actually love sleepy sex, quotes, with my husband, and I have an agreement he can wake me doing that. Is that different if she's got an agreement? Not necessarily. I mean, obviously, within people's relationships, they might have their own dynamics, but it still doesn't change the point in law. And I think considering how common sexual assault and sexual violence towards women and girls, I'm really, I'm really strong on this. Even if my partner, you know, if my wife said to me, I'm all right with this. I would quite like you to wake me up having sex with me. I'd be like, absolutely not. It's not happening, not doing it. No. And so the person who says if you're sleeping with someone you really love, I can not see how it's sexual assault. This is bonkers. I would feel like I was sexually assaulting her. She's fast asleep. And she doesn't know I'm about to do it. There's no consent there. She's got no prior knowledge of it. It's not happening. That was doctor Jessica Taylor and Rachel Thompson there. And if you need support on any of the issues raised through there are links on our website..

"It's just you have your very clear position on what is the line and where the line should be. And I think that's very important to her. And of course, if people, as we always say, have found anything very difficult. We'll put all the numbers of support on the women's our website for people to do. So doctor Jessica Taylor, thank you for your time and to Rachel Thompson. And Jessica, as you say, continuing to do more studies, which people can get involved with. In fact, how do they get involved? What's your organization? Victim focus. You can get as at victim focused dot org UK and have a look at what we do. Thank you very much. Doctor Jessica. And Rachel Thompson, the book is called rough. Now I said at the start of the program for 26 days, teenage girls in Afghanistan haven't been able to go to school. The Taliban has banned them from secondary schools, and that means they're very unlikely to go on to further education or university. The Taliban has said that women will be allowed to study and work in accordance with its interpretation of Islamic religious law, but it's also promised further announcement, keeping girls hanging on. At the beginning of the week, the United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres expressed how worried he is. I am particularly alarmed to see promises made to Afghan women and girls by the Taliban being broken. Broken promises leads to broken dreams for the women.

"I guess those who want to use them primarily in the slave market have weapons, so it's necessity because They're already there They were. I don't know if that makes sense. But Virginia Tech professor Jessica Taylor. She teaches a class on the relationship between the English colonists and the native peoples off Virginia. No, it does. And I think that people in the chat can help out too, so they can't manufacture their own guns. And those goods are key items for trade and give other other people in advantage. Guns used to enslave other tribes. Okay, so that's exactly that's exactly. That's key here, so A couple of folks put in here like oh, in case there's conflict with other native groups, and their has obviously always been conflict between particular native nations, but what is causing conflict? During colonization, but one of the big things was the slave trade. So there'd be sometimes that had created there like economy off of participating in the slave trade, and they would go after other tribes that were either smaller and maybe had less guns. Or just had no guns and therefore could not really fight against it. That's really key to what happened with land, Haddie and you all also learned about the Yellow Sea wars in the West owes if we're talking about People like Bonanza, Ticos what happened within and Aiko's You'll remember. Oh, Here's a Here's a comment. They can also be dangerous toe like in the case of bonanza to coz they could be used to pin a murder against the nation and then destroy it, dissolving their claims to land allowing for work, more English expansion. Okay, That's unit just covered. What happened with Bonanza Ticos? Um, how How does what the man's attic owes. What happened within Amazon, Akos represent the kind of slavery that's happening in Virginia. Why is the case with the man's attic? Oh, so weird or interesting to us. I think the significance of all of this is just that it's more dangerous and its own just because it all leads towards more. Land session and in turn that kind of Is more danger. There's two like tribal sovereignty versus like being a physical person. It kind of destroys like the culture as a whole. So if the land sessions make it so that people are, um, pushed off of the land. What does that do to cultural survival? Look at this in the check into that this but essentially with Children. You can teach them like the cultural values that you want them to have. And while some Children might still remember what they had before, then Bye, christianizing them They're raising them to be more friendly to colonizers. Some practices of culture are tied to the land and our natural resource is so That all together, pushes them away from that practice entirely and essentially erases that traditional history I was going to say, also like relating back to the Carlisle school. Remember reading at the beginning of a textbook is talking about histories and you know the master narrative and stuff like that and kind of as the U. S expanded it kind of didn't talk about or did highlight the atrocities. Such as these kind of me. Let's see. Well, it's the best way to put it. Um, it can kind of just made the values of liberty and and the U. S. Constitution. Declaration of Independence more prevalent over That they were actually committing, like, you know, a policy of genocide or something like that. So Um, So, yes, So we're tying land to culture, and that's offend something since the very beginning of this class, and when you divorce people from the national resource is that they grew up using the landscape that they know. It's very difficulty to keep Um He's certain aspects of culture. Transferring from generation to generation, Particularly parents were separated from Children. So this is this is a common theme that we've seen throughout this class and then slavery is used as a as a tool to implement that. We're needed people used as plantation slaves is the question of chat. Yes, absolutely. Um, that's so there were people that were shift away to the Caribbean or were sold to other colonies. Um, but a lot of people ended up being used as either indulge your servants or something in between slavery and indentured servants or as insights, Um, laborers, and the will's from the lecture kind of demonstrate that that people died with Enslaved Children in their property list. One thing that happens throughout class is that when native people in the south are displaced Plantation. Slavery is allowed to grow. And then with the profits from that very wealthy planters, who are the people that primarily most of Enslaved Africans are then importing people from the Royal African Company. So the displacement of native people is directly tied to the increase in African African American slavery in in terms of How native people are able to shape colonization this trade? Give them any kind of of her hand. In terms of dealing with colonizers. Because, remember, they have something that they want. And then someone says in the shot, they were able to use playoff diplomacy and work with the French, English and Spanish to get what they want. Yes, that's very true and awesome integration of class material, So that's very true that these trade networks ran through the claims. Was multiple colonies. So that gives you a little bit of knowledge about everybody and remember, also hear that knowledge is sacred key. So whatever some of the things that native people know about That the English colonizers in Virginia don't know about just about anything about the Chesapeake or west of the Chesapeake, like detailed maps of the land is one but also What resources are dominant in the area. For example, like if, if a planter wanted or farmer wanted to Produce a lot of crop, um, to make the mess profit off of the land. I would say that natives definitely had more knowledge of what resource is were best maybe not necessary for hunting for farming for gathering or whatever. So that was like one commercial benefit anyway. The child's problem, and we see the fur trade here that people in those areas and their connections yes. So understanding who is allied with who is very important. They know the land and could act as translators. They know the terrain, so that's really important because obviously for folks who are trying to navigate language Like the English are once you're out into west of where your phone it's very difficult to see. Like where you go next other than to follow the river until you can't anymore. Um, resource is like what can be grown or if there is a source of arable land. Also, potential land, borders and political can and can help with political outings. So like diplomacy, Okay, yeah, definitely. Need of knowledge is really key to helping English people, um, expand what they consider to be their territory. They can't do this without needed people at any point. The resources that native people are provided in terms of knowledge, but also in terms of forced labor are contouring colonization, and that's really the big key point here would not trading with them even impact that end result. Ooh, that's a good question. Where you all think? If if one Seneca chose not to trade with the English would that have impacted English colonization? You think there would have been a destination if the colonizers didn't get what they wanted from trade? Because the English would have been mad and decided to take things rather than trade. Would different trade relations have formed with other nations? Okay, so there's a couple of things here. When, when Palatinate was in charge. When 100 Senate who was in charge in 16, and seven could the English have decimated the politicians? Someone said No. They did not have the resources at the time. That's exactly right. They don't have the manpower and they don't have the knowledge of the place. And this is 100 of you even said that he said he literally said to John Smith. All I have to do is go into the woods where you can't find me. And Jasmine said Okay. You're probably right. So for the first few decades of colonization, it was actually the power tins like allowing the English to continue to live there. Exactly because they wanted some things that the English had They wanted to trade. I'm someone said the English right now have been able to survive their first few years without the help from the native people. That's just objectively true, like they literally like by them. Portion S so good job there. The tribes that didn't trade had a disadvantage compared to other tribes that did trade. So we see this with, for example, the Monica ins at the very beginning. That we know that the monarch ins were later involved in the first rate, but for a while, they said, I'm not interested in getting to know you. If you come near me, I'm just feeling like walk away. So is that a good strategy? So sometimes that did work out like with the Seminoles for a while and the Maroons Um, but I think with a lot of the tribes that lived in areas that had that very good, arable land the British were gonna like, say, I will leave you alone for now, because it's somewhere we're not interested in They were interested in it. So they specifically were targeting people on that land. Yeah, Yes. So the land is really key here. The fight over land is really integral toe, understanding, trade networks and Indian slavery. Absolutely. Then someone says in the child. The British will make more attempts to allow Native American autonomy and sovereignty than the subsequent United States may have only delayed the inevitable. So the idea being that I think no matter what What's happening. Is going to happen anyway. History Professor Jessica Taylor on the relationship between the English colonists and the native.

"What does that say about where we are in terms of campaign finance and influence? Jessica I mean, ah, lot of Graham's money has come from out of state to really he was knowing that he was going to be vastly outraised outspent. Probably not to this degree because you mentioned Harrison raised $57 million, which oblivion did the previous record of $38 million That was set last year. But, yes, Harrison. Most of hairs and money has come from out of state. They've actively courted that they've been running ads on National television trying to raise money as well. But but I think this is sort of par for the course in a lot of the Senate races because thes these candidates rely so much on online donation against especially Democrats that have proven adapt at Mobilizing the grassroots online, whereas Republicans really rely more on big dollar donations, and you have seen the outside groups than that Leadership fund, which is a super PAC aligned with Mitch McConnell really come in here and make up the difference to the point where they were actually outspending. Republicans in total were out spending Democrats and Harrison on air the past week. So it shows how much they know that they can't afford to lose this seat. You know, one thing that one of the caller said that really struck me was that he went on about how much he disliked Graham and I expected him then to say he's going to vote for Harrison be did say, is going to vote for Grant because he wants to see the Republicans still say, stay in. You want to see the Senate still say, stay in Republican hands and that the Senate really cause we're to be the last firewall that is keeping Democrats from unified control across the board because we don't expect the house to flip We expect at this point, I think it's far more likely that Biden does win the presidency. Then the Senate flips although I think the Senate is favored to flip it. This point too. So that message of okay, we still need a check really on. April, likely Democratic presidency seems to be breaking through there. Still very briefly, just about 20 seconds here when you take a step back and look at the four states we've discussed today. Arizona, Iowa, Montana in South Carolina. What do you see any themes emerging for you? Well, I think again the fact that we're even talking about South Carolina and Montana when these are typically red states just shows you how large the battlefield is for Republicans and how much they are on defense Overwhelmingly the cycle That's Jessica Taylor, the Senate and Governors reporter for the Cook Political Report.

"About impeachment and what's next for Congress and president trump and speaking of which Jessica Taylor so the vote is expected next week in the house possibly Wednesday then what happens can you remind us of what activities we will be seeing in the Senate so Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader has already indicated that this is going to take place after the holidays and he is that that you know he wants a short of possible Republican if you could talk about not calling really any witnesses at all and he's also said that he's going to be in touch with the White House in regard with how to do that that that they will and that he's going to essentially act act in the way that he wanted to me this is all and that sort of telling itself even though this is you know that senators are essentially acting as jurors and that way but then you also have with this house vote next week I need first of all I mean I think that Thursday actually would have been the anniversary of the impeachment vote against president Clinton so I think that you know where the that Democrats are probably wanted to avoid that on that same day so I think that's why look the at the day before but you know they're also they're passing a defense sell their passing the they're they're going to vote passed this year US MCA trade at the trade agreement they're going to point toward okay we've done this but work legislating and that's why I think a lot of these vulnerable Democrats than Republicans wanted to look at okay they're going to take his boat but they're going to pay for it they they want to balance out and I think it's important to remember that I mean no one wanted this impeachment I think less than speaker Nancy Pelosi that is she some of her more liberal members yes have been calling for this for eight years now but she had resisted I think as long as she could even you know after the mall or report came out earlier this year but I think that with what it transpired with Ukraine and the phone call and that the possible or complaint I think she really felt like that there it was building within our caucus and that something had to be take action had to be taken as per the constitution well let me go to our callers who want to weigh and also with Chris in San Jose hi Chris I thanks for taking my call I feel like a lot of the the focus on the impeachment of the past couple weeks as taking a lot of the wind from the sales of trying to find a candidate that can beat Donald Trump and I'm hoping that maybe we can get back to that okay because this we move forward I feel like this year is going away from watching the debate and watching the candidates and we're losing power of being able to find somebody who can not can work by truck thanks Kristin I'm sure Jennifer Haberkorn the democratic candidates feel the same way though impeachment we'll be be looming over the the nomination process absolutely if there was a lot of focus by house Democrats is getting this done by the end of the year so that this doesn't linger too far into twenty twenty I mean at this point it seems like it will be a main focus in January but as Jessica mentioned it the Senate is looking like it's going to do a pretty quick trial but Democrats were really worried about that they want to have this done in twenty twenty so that their candidate can kind of take the reins in in next year and make a more positive case against the president of what they would do and what he or she would you instead of trump instead of the the twenty twenty race really focusing on how Democrats are are trying to remove the president from office or whether that's going to be successful of course we don't know and how big of a focus impeachment is going to have when voters go to the polls next November little too soon to know but certainly this is going to be main talking point at least through Iowa at for the democratic candidates whether they want it to be or not let me go next to Dave hi Dave and where you calling us from Dave are you there can you hear yeah I can now hi Dave can you hear me go ahead if you can okay okay yeah so just there was article I read by John dean about I think we lost it because like about it yes have you read an article by John dean on impeachment that said what we can try again when did you try calling us back Dave I I think I'd like to I'd like for you to have a chance to answer questions to go ahead and and hang up and call us back in the meantime at as we look ahead one of the things that one of the things that is coming up quite a bit is Mitch McConnell's close relationship with the White House counsel in determining how the trial in the Senate moves forward Jessica Taylor can you talk about that and how unusual that is this is pretty unusual I think that you know he has talked with the White House counsel practically guarantee and you know has said that they're going to coordinate at work on a strategy to defend from so I mean he L. I think that they are acting in the way the White House one again I think that even with this happening yes the way that the Senate is right now with Republicans in control I think that much like this house then I think that the conclusion it's work on is that there no where near and beat because this isn't even just a majority in the Senate is a two thirds they have to have sixty seven votes in fact they're nowhere near that there are about three senators that could be our eyes swing votes I think but we can mark how ski as as as a last cat Susan Collins of Maine possibly so I mean there are not a lot of you know wavering the folks there that even if they are doing now I think it is not going to change hardly any mine really well one thing that some Democrats on the house Judiciary Committee are doing Jennifer Haberkorn is actually calling a leader Mitch McConnell to recuse himself shall Deming's of Florida said something along the lines of he's working hand in hand with the White House with the president's attorney and we're supposed to expect expect him to manage a fair and impartial trial yeah that's right McConnell's comments yesterday which came on I Sean Hannity show on fox really riled up Democrats because they feel like this is you know that the convicted person Donald Trump being able to really shape the trial and Republicans have tried to put up on an argument that there the jurors here they need to remain objective clearly McConnell is not is not worried about that and is us a little more concerned about making it clear that he's working with the president here all that said again Senate Republicans has fifty three votes and they would need Democrats are need sixty seven votes to hold up the connection of the president and remove him from office and that is all but impossible to see happening right now on so Republicans are really debating in their chamber whether they put a put up a big trial which is what trump originally seem to want and have in a very elaborate process or do something quick because they feel like they have the votes and let's just get this over with you in terms of the motion to dismiss potentially yeah or even just you know whether no witnesses and making rounds yeah yeah even the Oakland I understand you're back go ahead yes this is Dave hello hello go right ahead yes so if there is article I read by John dean about is suggesting that the house hold the impeachment until the election and if we don't beat the guy meeting Mr trump then maybe will win the Senate and then we do a beach I don't see I see that as a logical idea just to hold hold the impeachment over him yes Steve thanks again your reaction to that just Jessica Taylor I mean I think is that we we are also it is and I'm sure the territory here because we have never had an impeachment happening for president that is is running for reelection Andrew Johnson was not renominated by by the party to you editor to run again and then the next sentence was was starting at him and his second term he eventually revised what was that his second term as well and so we really don't know what kind of impact this could have but I do think that with as another previous caller mentioned I mean Democrats I think probably want to get this over as much as Republicans do because they have to move on with picking their nominee whether this credit maybe even you know by Joe by and is leading the field right now he has you know brought up the fact that that really all of this began because president trump was so worried about facing haven't trying you solely his name and what the work his son hunter did with that operates manner G. company there and so whether that could sort of help him as you know yes certainly yeah in article as being the most electable percent against trump and clearly the person that they're worried about we will also have next week a democratic debate that if if the schedule that we believe it as now stand this MPs but what happened Wednesday we will have a democratic debate on Thursday I think we can anticipate a lot of that but I don't think that there's any interest in holding the staying out you know very very long that that I think that this road is going to happen in January very quickly and that way it will be a I I certainly an interesting case study for politics oil for her that how an impeachment although with a likely acquittal could impact a partnered up for reelection you have trump whose approval ratings have remained fairly stagnant throughout his presidency really sort of in the either high very high thirties or below forty twenty approval but also a strong majority strong plurality who they're very strong people who strongly disagree is that when we see a post there is there is a growing number of people who strongly disagree with him but that you also have an economy that is strong and it will be surprised that you are running for reelection estimates economic numbers are strong that that that they get this there's a lot of unusual factors happening and then you throw in a peach but I think it's just break the twenty twenty election that much more volatile let me go to Tracy in San Francisco hi Tracy hello hi hi my question as well mortgage statement I am curious how a huge part of our political like process could ignore that morality because in this I

Elections in several states offer tests of 2020 voter enthusiasm

"It is still a year and told the presidential election but tonight voters in several states might be dropping clues about what to expect moving forward statewide races in Virginia and Kentucky and Mississippi are all seen as bellwethers for twenty twenty polls have now closed in all three states and they're looking really close and really interesting and pears Jessica Taylor joins me now hi there hi Mary Louise so I want to start with Kentucky which has been so so so close the race for governor is it still too close to call what we know it is incredibly close we have almost all of the results and and we have the Republican that Democrats indie Bashir clinging to a pretty narrow lead over Matt Bevin but what it does look like it but sheer is a prime to pull this out I think because he has driven out margins and the urban and suburban areas of this state as we know from twenty eighteen in the suburbs where the story where Democrats were able to get big margins he was able to do that and sort of pull even in rural areas as well and just to remind Bevin be incumbent Republican governor and very much was running on a platform that was including national issues very much tying himself president trump he really had to do this because he is actually one of the most unpopular governors in the country and he really sort of insulted teachers there as he was trying to do pension reform he did not work well with state legislators I think with it shows this is we've seen traditionally that voters are willing to make a differentiation between state and federal races that they were still willing to vote maybe against how they might at the National Party level and state level races but there was some question of whether that would hold this year because of just the hyper partisan environment that we are an but it also I think shows a part trump was there last night sort of holding a rally we have seen traditionally the he's been able to sort of rally his base but I think it tells us there are limits to that if Bevin does not win that really his unpopularity I think is what sunk him and not even tying himself the closest of any candidate running tonight to president trump could help him let me turn you to Virginia worry very different races under way what is at stake in Virginia and how is that playing out so it is another very close race we are watching for control of both the state house of delegates and the state Senate Republicans held to just very slim margins there a court order earlier this year actually force them to redraw state house lines and this gave Democrats to boost in those areas if they win tonight if they're able to plot majorities in both states they will have a unified state government Democrats will for the first time since the early nineties they are primed to push teachers maybe some gun control measures possibly even pass the equal rights amendment to the in the moments we have left Jessica just the fact that these races are so close still too close to call what does that tell us about where things may be headed where the electorate is well I think that it shows the Democrats are still able to rally their base when it matters all right and very quickly Mississippi Mississippi is another race where I think Republicans still have an advantage there your first lieutenant governor Tate Reeves and then this state Attorney General Jim hood I think that again Mississippi is more of a state of the Republican level so so very close to call its very early in the night because polls just closed there at eight PM

"Well in Virginia it seems the Democrats have secured a majority in the state legislature overturning Republican control for the first time in a decade joining us now from Washington is Jessica Taylor political reporter for NPR so Jessica what do we know for sure all say far we do know that the Virginia is it state houses will slip in this means unified democratic control both the governor's mansion and the General Assembly there for the first time in twenty five years so that means that they could pass stricter gun control measures especially in a state that is had several unfortunate mass shootings recently and could also I further expand Medicaid and healthcare in the state we can also see this is the final state needed to actually pass the equal rights amendment that would result in a new amendment to the constitution say these elections I see do you have a lot of national residents that I mean Virginia is a state that has been more of a swing state traditionally but is moving more in the blue column and that sort of spurred by the growth especially in the DC suburbs in northern Virginia and then there in Kentucky I mean this is one state that I think president trump really put a lot of his political capital and he went there the Republican governor there Matt Bevin had been incredibly unpopular including with many Republicans he picks fights with teachers in the state with others Republican state legislators but it can Kentucky is a very Republican state president trump what it by thirty points and that we have seen in the past you've been able to sort of transfer that political capital that you had two other Republicans but he was not able to do that there is and that sort of is a blow to him right he's facing this impeachment inquiry hearing here in Congress because he was in Kentucky campaigning the day before the election wasn't a and really pleading with people to vote Republican how worried when he be that he hasn't been able to turn that around that well I think that also like this was still a referendum on bad then and just how unpopular he was because other down ballot candidates like for Attorney General secretary of state where did still when in Kentucky but I think that you know he really did go all in there I think one thing that it shows is that we have seen traditionally voters here in the United States have been able to make a differentiation between state and federal candidates by in that sort of hyper partisan era that we live in here that was becoming harder for them to do but it does show that it can still maybe can it's matter local issues matter and can ultimately went out there if you have a really problematic candidates Jessica thank you that was Jessica Taylor who's a political reports that with

But try it anyway, you might love it, and they gave us a huge older of tumor. Choose to not like giving up two to three weeks driving around this little car with tumor. Juice leaking out of the for. Impor- ringo. No. But that was super super rental car in Vegas with Steph team this year flight talking about not my right moment. So let's talk about like right now because you were a nurse burnt out. Started a business I teach full-time at the whole yoga thing and undecided to go back to nursing. Yeah. I mean, I haven't baby just like kinda shifted everything and realizing how hard it is to be a business owner into do. It all yourself and it was hard on Ryan. He was he was sacrificing a lot as well. So made the decision to go back to under- seeing had a whole new respect for it. And I also just moving to a different area of nursing made a huge difference. But then realizing like, okay, it's kind of now or never forgo him back to school. So actually just went to go. Find out like how much it costs and what requirements were by the time. I left the guys like so he filled out that Blake Asian it starts in two weeks. And I was like, oh, so I guess I'm not thinking about the same Oregon. I'm doing it. But i'm. I'll be done in June. It's kind of killing me and consuming my life right now trying to study and learn and. Now, you're a nurse pregnant Titian, which is a whole other thing than being a nurse. I've learned yes, it is. It is it's a lot more responsibility. Also, a lot more autonomy as far as when you practicing. But I don't know. It's it's interesting. I worked for a pediatric neurosurgeon right now hoping to stay there when I'm done moso kind of interested in mental hilt and trying to learn more because there's just not enough options for people, and there's a huge need, especially with all the social media craziness impacts of mental health allot along someone asks or says, I love how real you keep it on social media. Can you give us some tips for a person in my know, how relaxed it really you keep it on social can you give us on tips whose followers by the day. Kidding? I'm not. Yeah. But I don't really I really wish that that number would disappear because it is much as you want to not be affected by it, psychologically. You are like, and I really try to distance myself from it, but it still like impacts you, and I found myself sometimes like scroll, it messes with the dopamine receptors in your brain. Right. So rolling messes with dopamine, no technology, like the actual like like Instagram like the the lights and the oh the engaged getting advocating from the app itself, it really messes with your psyche more than you realize, even if you don't think that you care about it does actually affect you more than you think which is kind of scary thing slowly right now because I just decided the title for this episode is going to be the world's worst in. So I was like give us three tips for how to keep it real. I lose followers. I just don't care. I don't post things because I want Licey one more postings postings about my child because I love it. And I want to remember it kind of turned into more of a time line of my life. Somebody question about when something happened. I'm like hang on a second scroll back care limber shits like figure it out. And then I liked to post about my practice because a lot of times. I wanna remember like a certain sequence where certain flow because all use that to teach later on or something that just felt really good to me. You know, I get I do, and I shouldn't be so negative about it. I do find a lot of people on there that I like. And then I feel really do feel really inspired by a love a lot of most people have like no followers, like they're like really small accounts. I love Stephanie Steffi Steffi. Now, she's not posted as much yoga either anymore to kinda love. But I mean, a love Laura she's great with her anatomy and trying to think who else to go through throw me like a name that. I don't know. Like, look, let's let's let's look let's elevate someone who isn't. And this is also the thing I think as long as we keep giving attention to the things that make us feel bad like the people that are the skinniest or that show like the the most skewed version of reality, the super influencers that live the absolute promotes perfect ridiculous lives. They get the mo- most attention by far and people who share hey, I had a tough day. And here's my toast. I'm sitting in my pajamas like feeling like shit. Anyone who shares real stuff? It doesn't get as high of an engagements. I think we have a responsibility as people who just follow along to also engage with and highlight people who keep it really real. Right. So we have more of them in. In our feeds and more of them in our lives. I yeah, I've definitely gone through. And try to follow a lot of anybody that just like don't it makes me feel just not good and just like slightly like, then I'm just why am I following this person? Like, what is the point? I only I had this girl who I was gonna say her name, but I was super inspired by in terms of being an entrepreneur and being a mom and then for like for years for over the long time. And then recently, I started realizing that every time her photos came up in my feet. I had this little like. I'm not doing a good enough job. Like, it was just like started feeling inadequate, and it has nothing to do with her like she's just sharing the same things. He's always sharing but something shifted in me. So none of this has to reflects at all on the people. We choose to follow. It's more about what fills us up right now. And the things that inspired me ten years ago. Don't aren't the same things that inspire me today. So I think it's important that we update our social media as we grow evolve. And that's.

"Do you ever send money abroad? And this is something that always seems to pop in my life. If it's something that you deal with to go ahead and check out transfer wise translate is is the best way to send money overseas for several reasons, but the biggest is the exchange rate when you send money with other older methods. They usually don't give you the real exchange rate like the one on Google. They Mark up that rate and pocket. The difference at transfer wise, they say if your rates pretend you must not send Tresor wise is different. It was started by immigrants who are tired of getting ripped off when they were sending money back home, and they were determined to fix the system. They developed smart tech. They hired clever people and seven years and four million customers leader company transfer wise gives you the real exchange rate every time you send between over seventy currencies. You pay only a small up front feet, and in the end more of your money gets to the other side transfer is also has a free multi-currency account that lets you hold over forty currencies at once and convert them, whatever you like, and they have a referral program that rewards you for spreading the word for someone like me who's from Sweden. But. Living in a robot constantly traveling. This is a dream if the ferret friendlier future of finance try saying that ten times fast does for free at transfer is not com slash yoga or download the app. Hi, and welcome to another episode of from the heart conversations with yoga girl. I am currently in my guest room sitting here with a very very special guest, and maybe are most reluctant guest of the show ever. Welcome to the show. One of my best friends. Jessica taylor. Hi. So comfort zone. I hate you. What's up? I just hope I don't say anything and appropriate or offensive. I'm an expert at absolutely nothing. I love experts. Absolutely nothing. I've I've been like Kenneth Pacific on not having you on the show over the years because I'm so scared. We're gonna say something super for. Or politically incorrect or I don't know most of the time you're always telling stories about me. So I don't know what you have to be worried about. These thirty let stories are you talking about? Member things differently. We remember many things really. So for anyone. I mean, everybody knows who you are. You're your staple in my life. If you don't know if you've been living under a rock, and you don't know Jessica Taylor is. She is bluewater love on Instagram. She's a super mega in Flintshire. Are you not she's giving you the finger. Are you not an implant there? For everybody. That's written me messages about promoting products and getting on your team. I'm sorry. I Nord you. You are. I think you're one of the first people who started kind of catching on to the the messed up like scenario that is yoga Instagram like before anyone was having these conversations out loud you, and I were having these conversations privately you do have an Instagram following you have more instrument follower than a regular person. Yes. Because. But how do you feel about that? So okay. Okay. Let's give a little who. Are you? Welcome to the show. Actually, I am surprised whenever I do meet people in random places like whenever you taught the class in New York. And I was with you a lot of girls came up that we're nurses and connected with me because I'm a nurse, and I had no idea. So I thought that that was really cool. But yeah, I don't definitely don't consider myself as like having this big falling or being an influence or at all. I'm going to start. Introducing you like that to new people. Hello. This is my friend. Jessica she's from Georgia. She's instagram. You teach classes on the stuff. But okay, your your teacher. We got to know each other through the sub yoga community way back in the day to tell the story of how he met. Yeah. Is it does not a bad story checklist of all the bad stories on alone to tell them this show how we met? So I was at surf expo was our second time at surface. Boy, I think with Dennis I had just become an ambassador for Boga yoga, this up board Santa paddleboard company, and I desperately wanted to be an ambassador for Boga. And we met there at the Bogue out booth. Yeah. I had just served following you. So I knew who you were. And I turned to Ryan my husband. And I said, I think that that's reachable breath, something whatever, however, you say her name. That's her. That's her. We were introduced in your totally normal, and like some felt like somebody had no my whole life. And that's kind of how you've been through out our relationship like totally normal person that gets pissed off and angry and is ridiculous. And I just think it's funny. I dunno. It's weird to me to see you when this huge platform with all these followers win to me. You're just a normal person. I am normal for years. Walk up to you. Crying that don't even do you happen to normal people. But yeah, it was really fun. They had us demo in the poll together doing yoga, and that was when it was still pretty new and for the surf expo it kind of took all the attention away from everything and everybody was taking pitchers and really into whatever we were doing. We were like doing headstones on the board. Now, if you go what is it like, I don't know how many years eight ten year eight years, maybe later, it is like all gimmicky, sup yoga, fitness boards. Just like mass chaos. It's different. Now. I feel like it was like stand up paddle boarding on. Its own was becoming the fastest growing water sport in the world people were so into it. You can stand up and exercise on the water and go places and being nature. Like, it was this kind of cool thing. Now, everybody's trying to capitalize on it and turning into super. Gimmicky? I look back at those days, and it's like has his rosy glow. I don't know. I feel like when you and I met everything was here. Yeah. Especially like, the online community and everything back. Then then I'm like, maybe it was just us. Like, maybe you look back at all times in your life. You're like, oh, everything was so cute. Feel like it's definitely spiraled control with just how much attention people get now through these online platforms. I mean, it has a lot of positives and a lot of benefits and being able to get out there and connect with people and start a business. But then it also has this really big dark side that it's like fake images and trying to promote something that you aren't. It's just lost a lot of its authenticity. I think it's kind of sad. But we always used to talk about that. Like just not in public like.

"Well, I think this goes back to what we were talking about before. Which is the fact that we do have a divided congress. I think you can expect to see the house dig into this and probably investigate again. I mean, these are the kinds of sort of concrete issues that I think Pelosi Democrats in in the house of representatives feel that they have a duty to to look into and that it's not just some like, you know, political football. You know, I think on the Senate side there, there will be questions we have seen in some cases, you know, some some bipartisan questioning of secretary Nielsen the DHA secretary. But you know, I don't think that people who are critical of these policies and what's happened over the past couple of years with these children. I don't think would say that you know, the Senate has really dug in and how the administration's feet. To the fire on this. You know, I think that the fact that we have confirmation hearings for a new attorney general this week sort of isn't interesting twist in the sense that Bill bar does not seem to be quite as much of an immigration hard liner Jeff Sessions, but still pretty. In that model and sessions just came from such a different place in terms of that have been so much his issue for so long bar has a long history and law enforcement, I'm sessions, I think came from a more political place. But if you listen to those hearings that was the part of his testimony that I think trouble Democrats. The most was his sort of agreeing with just some of the premise of the way the administration has presented what's happening at the border. And so I think that vote, you know, this could impact that vote as well. Well, MAURICE Lagos's is a reporter with California politics and government desk, and we're also talking with Jessica Taylor political reporter for NPR. And with you our listeners, let's start with Bonnie in Santa Rosa. Hi, bonnie. Hi there. Go ahead, Bonnie. Yes, you're on. Yeah. Boy, there's so much isn't there? But I did have a question. Maybe people can address I read the BuzzFeed article last night online and. You know, it's kind of difficult when they cite these unnamed sources, but do these two law enforcement officials does this represent perhaps the first leak in the Mueller investigation. Jessica taylor. Do you wanna take that? Mueller's investigation are Muller's investigation rather when when it started he someone who has runs a tight ship, and we have seen I think certainly less leaks. I know talking with our Justice correspondent and things to one of the first things they noted when he was appointed. I said this is going to be very leak free investigation. And it largely has been that there have been reporting outside of things probably. But you know, if this is coming from within also think it could signal that it's becoming very close to him probably releasing his report in in a way as well. Ause are increasing for that. Yeah. And I do want to provide one update that I just got across Twitter at Rudy Giuliani. Of course, the former New York City mayor who was acting as a spokesman legal counsel for Trump on this matter. He has now denied this any suggestion from any source that the president council Michael Cohen to lie is categorically false. Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and liar, and pointing to those you know, that that t he himself Cohen is going in for jail time as well. And and so, you know, I think that this could be proven true with the Muller report, which I do thank, you know. Maybe these drips that we are getting seems to signal that something could be imminent, but in Washington. Imminent, certainly isn't tomorrow or next week or thinks either either necessarily, yes. But this suggestion that Coen's a liar. But yet Conan saying he was directed to lie. That's sort of ironic about all of that. But bringing up William bar earlier as the law goes you were saying that, you know, the separations could put some pressure on on bar to take the situation more seriously at the border, but what about concerns about how squishy in terms of releasing the mullahs report to the public could this change that if it's found to be, you know, a credible story by BuzzFeed. I mean, it's so hard to know. Right. Like, I mean, the news just moved so quickly. If you look at the what we've learned just in the past month or so about the Russia investigation between Manafort and Cohen. I think part of the problem politically for Democrats on that sort of question is that it almost moves so fast. It's like hard to keep up. You forget the the last bombshell revelation. I mean things that would have potentially taken down other presidents sort of are just like in the course of business these days. So I think it's hard to ever know exactly how one part of the story is going to impact another. But you know, I think that the bar is certainly again coming from different place as sort of a lifelong law enforcement official. I think the Democrats who are maybe still considering voting for him or said that they would took some solace in that. But not a ton because you know, on those issues there was there was a little bit of ambiguity there. And I will say I will say having watched some of the bar hearing this week. I mean, it was like we were expecting maybe some more bombshells, especially because on the judiciary committee. They're senators that are considering running for president and things too. But it was largely us. Normal confirmation hearing don't get up. We don't get a lot of normal in Washington these days, and for Democrats, probably this is probably the best nominee that they could hope for because he someone that you would see in any sort of normal Republican administration other than Trump's being put out there. You know has this background in the Bush administration and is not a particularly political figure. Yes. Some of his writings and things on special counsels have come under scrutiny and different things like that. But I mean, as I mentioned, you know, he is not someone like this firebrand person like Jeff Sessions was and also one of the one of the things they focused on to. He's very good friends with Bob Muller. I mean like I went to his daughter's, weddings. And I think that they've had dinner together and things I mean, this is someone that clearly he trust as well and has a respect for. Well, let's go to more of our listeners calls, Bruce in Piedmont, you're on. Hi, bruce. Hi, yes. You you know, you mentioned correctly that this is just too. A large number about -rageous stick than they have every day when you extract out and don't consider the outrageous that have to deal with partisan political policy. There are differences of politics. There's still so many outrageous things that are threats to our national security, and I'd like our correspondence to explain what are the Republicans thinking. Why do they ignore the time after time after time, Bruce, thank you Reza Llagas? Do you want to respond to Bruce? It's hard to ever get into the minds of people. But yeah, what are the Republicans thinking? I mean, I think it's a sort of common. Wisdom is that they are nervous about their base that you know, again, we've seen Trump's base really stick with him. Regardless of what happens and we've also seen the president repeatedly jump in and help primarily Republicans who do go against him. And so I think that there's still you know, this this caution. I think that was. Two thousand twenty around the corner and the change of power the balance of power in the house, and some of the senators and the different calculations in terms of which Senate seats are going to be up in twenty twenty that could change. But again, I think on things like. You know, the shutdown and the fact that you see people like Susan Collins, or whatever maybe making comments that they're willing to make a deal, but then not actually going out and doing much about it. There's a lot of questions about how serious even people who are willing to stand up and speak critically about Trump like whether they'll take that to the next step what Bruce. Thanks question. Yes. Jessica taylor. Another thing. I'd like to point out to is typically we have seen passing administrations when they sort of get shellacked as Obama said in midterm elections in twenty ten for him in two thousand six for Bush when the house flipped they take lessons from this. I think, but as I even thought that would happen before the midterms if Republicans lost the house that Trump is not gonna take those lessons. He is not someone that looks back and says, oh, maybe I should do something different. He barrels down his own path. Nobody are what happens. He thinks. He has his best strategist he has no need for outside. Advisers. He goes on forward and Republicans largely have adopted this mentality. And I think that this is the danger going. Forward into twenty twenty that they are reading all of the wrong lessons about the midterm elections. And we've seen this. I think in this shutdown fight Trump very much campaign for Republican candidates on the wall on border security. This was sort of his closing message. They lost the house by by more seats than we really expected that they were going to forty was really an astonishing number far more than the than the twenty three. The they needed in the Senate, though, they're saying, okay? We still held onto the Senate, but it was such a different map there where Republicans were almost entirely on offense. Try and Democrats were defending seats in very very red places. Twenty twenty is not like that you have more vulnerable Republicans. And and you know, it's sort of he he won one election with his base. But we've even had pulling out this week from NPR showing that are NPR Marras poll that basis eroding and that an astounding Lavera low number of people are inclined to reelect him. And that's something that is. I think should be a wakeup call for Trump. But I'm not sure that it's going to be man again. Jessica Taylor as political reporter with NPR and Maria Lagos's, a reporter, California, politics and government desk, and at if you want to join the conversation the number here. Eight six six seven three three six seven eight six the Email address foreign acuity dot org. Our website key community dot org slash forum. And we're at forum on Facebook and Twitter marisha logos. More about the shutdown and how it is affecting the president's approval numbers. And as Jessica mentioned, we're seeing some some slippage lack of a better word among his hardcore base. So in this tit for tat that we saw this week between speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump with Nancy Pelosi suggesting that he postponed his state of the union address. Trump postpone a state of the union address amid the government shutdown and then Trump firing back by cancelling at the. Very last minute and quite dramatic fashion her planned trip to Afghanistan, you what does that say about you know, the length of this shutdown potentially? And also just who will come out on top. I mean, it's I think it's really hard to say who will come out on top. And I think that often, you know, these things again like the things move so quickly we're in early twenty nineteen will the shutdown via factor by twenty twenty on terms on the ballot again who knows right starkly it hasn't. Yeah. I think that if the election was next week that would be a totally story. I'm but we did see this morning. A new development we should update our listeners on which is that. So apparently policy did suggest did decide to try to fly commercial with us delegation. And now her office is accusing the president of leaking those travel plans, so they did cancel this Afghanistan trip saying it's too much of a security risk. You don't want to give anyone a heads up when you're going into a combat zone or to visit troops. And I think she tried to be a little careful about saying. Well, you know, somebody asked her, you know, are USA. Suggesting that the president did this is payback around the shutdown in the the state of the union thing. And she said, well, I wouldn't suggest that I don't think you know, he would do that. So I think that this is a new moment Nancy Pelosi is a very different person than Chuck Schumer. For example. I'm she's in a much more powerful position than any democrat has been since Trump was elected. And you know, I it's hard to say with Trump like does this hurt the chances of a deal or make him respect her more and bring everybody to the table. I mean that may sound a little crazy. But you kind of get the sense that he does have more respect for Pelosi then for some of her counterparts, and you know, she is a good negotiator. She is very good at keeping her caucus together. And I think that that is sort of the key thing right now for her which is that if you don't have Democrats kinda peeling off on that you're in a stronger position for these negotiations. But I think anytime we talk about this important dimension who are the victims here. Eight hundred thousand workers. Yes, their families. I mean, I heard a heartbreaking story yesterday about a TSA agents saying he was going to have to sell his home because of the shutdown. I it's just unfathomable and we had a show yesterday. Just trying to get a sense of how folks in the bay area who are federal employees or who rely on federal employees, including contractors how they're being affected by this. But ultimately to your earlier point, even if he President Trump admires Nancy. Pelosi's audacity, let's say he I doubt would ever want to be seen as capitulating to her. Which is how these things this is again described. Jessica Taylor as a safe face face saving.
